The Ethics of Protocells – Moral and Social Implications of Creating Life in the Laboratory
Curt Richter’s portraits reveal insights into his sitters beyond the visible surface. His ability to connect to his subjects is apparent in their faces, and their candor makes evident the trust he gains. He approaches portraiture with the belief that a photograph can steal a bit of a subject’s soul. The intention with all his photographs, regardless of the subject matter, is to create a storyline. The narrative thread that bonds Thousand Words is the Key West Literary Seminar. There is probably no island in the world that holds the literary heritage that Key West can claim. For the last eight years, Richter has photographed anyone involved with the seminar willing to sit for a portrait, and this series documents a slice of time in a community with a long history.

Hands-on laboratory classes have always been valued for the practical experience gained by engineering and science students, but the value however, has not been so easy to quantify. Currently, in the evaluation of engineering laboratory work, most assessment involves only explicitly specified learning outcomes and usually the element of tacit knowledge, implicit knowledge or practical intelligence has not been assessed or measured. We view implicit knowledge as an important aspect of practical intelligence, that is, the ability to use one’s intelligence in the day-to-day situations that confront one in everyday life. A major part of the justification for laboratory learning is the “hands-on” experience which can be as valuable an outcome as explicitly stated learning objectives. However, it is not easy to assess the level of practical intelligence that students bring to the laboratory classes and any that they might 'unintentionally' gain through the laboratory experience. This PART 3 of the book is describing the implementation of pilot study, where the pilot version of the instruments is used and measured the existence of practical intelligence on students.
With a career spanning almost sixty years, Gerhard Richter is among the most prominent painters of the twentieth and twenty-first century, well-known for his monumental abstract and photo-realistic works. But beyond the many instantly recognizable paintings, relatively little is still known about how Richter works, his artistic processes and philosophy. For this book, Belgian photographer Benjamin Katz—a fifty-year veteran of the art world himself—had the opportunity to capture on film the notoriously camera-shy artist at work. Armed with a pair of compact Leicas, he photographed and hand-developed eighty extraordinary black-and-white portraits of Richter painting, sketching, and mulling over his work. A keen observer, Katz shoots his subjects candidly and without the use of flash. Because of this, his photographs reflect genuine moments in the lives of their subjects, often with an almost palpable sense of humor, melancholy, or love. In addition to Richter, Katz has photographed Joseph Beuys, Sigmar Polke, Rosemarie Trockel, Martin Kippenberger, and Georg Baselitz, among many other legends of the contemporary art world, exhibiting his photographs in some of the world’s biggest institutions. Katz’s striking photographs of Richter will be equally well-received for the insight they offer into his celebrated career.
Job strain is the harmful physical and emotional responses that can happen when there is a conflict between job demands on the employee and the amount of control an employee has over meeting these demands. Job-related depression may often be initiated by high levels of long-term job stress, failure associated with stress-related under-performance, or by life crises. Job-related depression is a clinical illness and the workers should take this seriously. This study is aimed at identifying the psychosocial characteristics of job strain and the relationship between psychosocial job factors and depression in laboratory technicians in HUSM and KKM Hospitals. Results showed that the majority of laboratory technicians in HUSM and KKM Hospitals were classified as passive. However, the proportion of high strain group was the second highest after passive group in both HUSM and KKM Hospitals. Job insecurity, physical exertion, and total psychological stressor are the significant risk factors of job strain in laboratory technicians in HUSM. However, the significant risk factors of job strain for laboratory technicians in KKM Hospitals are physical exertion and total psychological stressor.
Does the Scientist's Sex Matter in the Laboratory? The Effects of an Experimenter's Sex in Psychology Experiments investigates the ways in which an experimenter's sex influences psychology research. This investigation includes a meta-analysis of studies that have examined the effects of experimenter sex, followed by a replication of a 1974 study that found that participants perceived male and female experimenters differently.
The old days of easy-going attitudes to laboratory safety and teaching are over. In addition, there is a clarion call to bridge the gap between theoretical and practical aspects of chemistry and other sciences to make them appealing to the younger generation who are gradually loosing interest in science-related disciplines. The overall objective of this handbook is to introduce a comprehensive overview on the fundamentals of laboratory teaching and safety for laboratory workers in the chemical sciences as well as other personnel in the allied sciences. Two unique features are evident in this handbook. First, the book presents the how of laboratory teaching. It is not intended to be a cookbook that presents a set of instructions to be followed by the laboratory instructor. Rather, self-appraisal, fundamental principles, and skill development required for effective laboratory teaching are detailed. Second, the book gives a lucid introduction to laboratory management, chemical safety and prudent chemical handling. Finally, remember, to teach is to learn twice. Enjoy the nuggets for effective lab teaching and safety practices.
LabVIEW (short for Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Engineering Workbench) is a platform and development environment for a visual programming language from National Instruments. The graphical language is named "G". Originally released for the Apple Macintosh in 1986, LabVIEW is commonly used for data acquisition, instrument control, and industrial automation on a variety of platforms including Microsoft Windows, various flavors of UNIX, Linux, and Mac OS X. Visit National Instruments at www.ni.com. The code files have the extension “.vi”, which is an abbreviation for “Virtual Instrument”. LabVIEW offers lots of additional Add-Ons and Toolkits. In this book, we can see some of the laboratory experiments in the field of Digital Electronics, Signal Processing, Data Acquisition, GPIB Communication, RS232 Communication, Ethernet, and Programmable motion Drives, etc.
