Journalistic Integrity Oxymoron?Introduce your friend to a journalist at a party, and inevitably they will make a comment similar to, ‘I shall have to watch what I say from now on.’ This sort of joke stems from a popular concern about the press perhaps the same reason people hate to be video taped at parties. Of course, the truth behind the mistrust depends on the integrity of the journalist in question (or possibly the gullibility of their friend) but the danger, as it were, is real. A word said to a journalist, once captured in print, becomes news.
Ecosystem services conceptualise the diverse values that ecosystems provide to humanity. This was recognised in the United Kingdom’s National Ecosystem Assessment, which noted that appreciation of the full value of ecosystem services requires recognition of values that are shared. By operationalising the shared values concept, it is argued that the contribution of ecosystem services to human well being can be represented more holistically.
The biological effects of atmospheric cold plasma generated reactive species are mediated through and at a liquid interface. The diversity of antimicrobial efficacy or intensity of effects may differ with respect to the plasma device or set up, and it is important to understand how these differences occur to advance understanding and successful applications. Thus, plasma treated water (PTW) from a microwave driven plasma source (PTW MW) and plasma treated water from a di electric barrier discharge system (PTW DBD) were compared in terms of long lived reactive species chemical composition and antimicrobial activity.
Arkansas quarterback Ben Hicks was ineffective and ultimately pulled. He didn’t complete his first pass until the second quarter and, after an interception returned for a touchdown, he was replaced by third string quarterback John Stephen Jones. The Razorbacks (2 7, 0 6) had just 141 yards of total offense in the first half, 52 of which came on a touchdown run by Rakeem Boyd that cut Arkansas’ deficit to 10, 17 7..
You should expect your academic interests to change (potentially substantially) throughout the PhD, but in my experience nobody does good work if they seriously unhappy. You will be so much more productive if you happy with your lab atmosphere. If it the case that many labs in your field have such unhealthy practices, it may be up to you to set your own boundaries for what you willing to put up with.
A ray of sunshine never visits this apartment any more than the glare of the festal torches, which have been extinguished from the era of the revolution. A bar in modern style, well replenished with decanters, bottles, cigar boxes, and net work bags of lemons, and provided with a beer pump and a soda fount, extends along one side of the room. At my entrance, an elderly person was smacking his lips, with a zest which satisfied me that the cellars of the Province House still hold good liquor, though doubtless of other vintages than were quaffed by the old governors.
