This book is full of clear revision notes for GCSE Citizenship students. It covers all of the topics in the current Citizenship Programme of Study, including politics, laws and social issues in a chatty, straightforward style, and it is suitable for the AQA, Edexcel and OCR Short Course GCSEs. Every few pages there are quick warm-up tests to help you remember the important facts. Plus there is a section of exam advice to help you improve your grades.
The aim of this book is to provide the target audience, specifically students of Medicine, Biology, Systems Biology and Bioinformatics, as well as experienced researchers in research fields relevant to metabolic syndrome (MetS) with an overview of the challenges and opportunities in systems biology and how it can be used to tackle MetS. In particular, the aims are: (1) to provide an introduction to the key biological processes involved in the pathophysiology of MetS; (2) through the use of specific examples, provide an introduction to the latest technologies that use a systems biology approach to study MetS; and (3) to give an overview of the mathematical modeling approaches for studying MetS. The clearly written chapters by leading experts in the field provides detailed descriptions crucial for the unique position of this book and its focus on the application of systems biology to tackle specific pathophysiologically relevant aspects of MetS and provides a valuable practical guide to this research community.
A stunning Dr Watson thriller perfect for all fans of Sherlock.
The year is 1917 and Doctor John Watson is held in a notorious POW camp deep in enemy Germany, there as Medical Officer for the British prisoners.
With the Allied blockade, food is perilously short in the camp and when a new prisoner is murdered all assume the poor chap was killed for his Red Cross parcel.
Watson, though, isn't so sure.
Something isn't quite what it seems and a creeping feeling of unease tells Watson there is more to this than meets the eye. And when an escape plot is apparently uncovered in his hut and he is sent to solitary confinement, he knows he has touched a nerve.
If Watson is to reveal the heinous crimes that have occurred at the camp, he must escape before he is silenced for good. All he needs is some long-distance help from his old friend, Sherlock Holmesâ€¦
This new book will act an introduction to as well as a practical guide to Boundary-Scan testing. The ever increasing miniaturization of digital electronic components is hampering the conventional testing of Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) by means of bed-of-nails fixtures. Basically this is caused by the very high scale of integration of ICs, through which packages with hundreds of pins at very small pitches of down to a fraction of a millimeter, have become available. As a consequence, the trace distances between the copper tracks on a printed circuit board came down to the same value. Not only have the required small physical dimensions of the test nails made conventional testing unfeasible, the complexity to provide test signals for many hundreds of test nails has grown beyond manageable limits. A new board test methodology has to be invented. Following the evolution in the IC test technology, Boundary-Scan testing has become the new approach to PCB testing. By taking precautions in the design of the IC (design for testability), testing on a PCB level could be simplified to a great extent. This condition has been essential for the success of the introduction of a Boundary-Scan Test (BST) at board level. Since Boundary-Scan testing involves the whole PCB life cycle, it is more than just the introduction of a new design technology. It is an integral production approach which will aid top management in their goal of a successful global strategy for their business. This book will aid a company to introduce the Boundary-Scan Test. IC design and test engineers alike will find the book an important introduction and guide to using the Boundary-Scan Test in their work. Engineering managers can also use this book to gain an insight to the impact that the Boundary-Scan Test will make on their organisation.
