Safe Science: Promoting a Culture of Safety in Academic by Committee on Establishing and Promoting a Culture of Safety

By Committee on Establishing and Promoting a Culture of Safety in Academic Laboratory Research,Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology,Division on Earth and Life Studies,Board on Human-Systems Integration,Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Educ

Recent severe and infrequently deadly injuries in chemical examine laboratories at usa universities have pushed govt organizations, specialist societies, industries, and universities themselves to check the tradition of security in study laboratories. those incidents have brought on a broader dialogue of ways severe incidents might be avoided sooner or later and the way top to coach researchers and emergency body of workers to reply competently while incidents do happen. because the precedence put on security raises, many associations have expressed a wish to transcend easy compliance with rules to paintings towards fostering a robust, confident security tradition: asserting a relentless dedication to security all through their associations, whereas integrating safeguard as a necessary aspect within the day-by-day paintings of laboratory researchers.

Safe Science takes in this problem. This record examines the tradition of defense in learn associations and makes concepts for collage management, laboratory researchers, and environmental well-being and defense execs to help safeguard as a center worth in their associations. The file discusses how you can satisfy that dedication via prioritizing investment for safeguard gear and coaching, in addition to making defense an ongoing operational priority.

A robust, optimistic security tradition arises no longer as a result of a collection of principles yet as a result of a relentless dedication to security all through a company. any such tradition helps the loose trade of defense details, emphasizes studying and development, and assigns larger significance to fixing difficulties than to putting blame. excessive value is assigned to safeguard invariably, not only while it truly is handy or doesn't threaten own or institutional productiveness objectives. Safe Science may be a advisor to make the adjustments wanted in any respect degrees to guard scholars, researchers, and staff.

Författaren behandlar ett antal begrepp som förekommer inom den speciella relativitetsteorin.
1) test med televisionå referenssystem, S1 och S2, stillastående gentemot varandra, och ett objekt i S1 i vilket uppstår händelser.
2) scan med televisionå referenssystem, S1 och S2, som rör sig med konstant hastighet v > zero gentemot varandra, och ett objekt i S1 i vilket uppstår händelser.
3) Tidsdilatation
4) Härledning av Lorentztransformationer
6) Michelson-Morley experimentet, 1887
Denna analys av den speciella relativitetsteorin
påvisar för många felaktigheter, för många feltolkningar!
Utifrån detta bör guy dra slutsatsen att den speciella relativitetsteorin är felaktig från grunden, i sin helhet!

Informelles Lernen im Spiegel des Weiterbildungsmonitorings by Katrin Kaufmann

By Katrin Kaufmann

Trotz der zunehmenden - vor allem bildungspolitisch geprägten - Bedeutungszuschreibung des informellen Lernens als relevante shape der Bildungsbeteiligung Erwachsener, liegen in und für Deutschland aktuell keine Längsschnitt- oder Trendanalysen zur tatsächlichen Beteiligung vor. Auf der Grundlage der Scientific-Use-Files der Querschnitterhebungen 1994-2007 des Berichtssystems Weiterbildung (BSW) wurden für diese Studie die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen trendanalytischer Betrachtungen des informellen berufsbezogenen Lernens untersucht. Fokussiert werden Funktionen und kontextuelle Einbindungen in Erwerbstätigkeit der informellen Lernaktivitäten. Im Ergebnis zeigt sich einerseits die Relevanz einer differenzierteren Betrachtung informellen Lernens Erwachsener und darüber hinaus werden die Möglichkeiten trendanalytischer Betrachtungen von Beteiligungsmustern unter sich ändernden Erhebungsformaten deutlich.
