Preliminary assessment of the interaction of introduced biological agents with biofilms in water distribution systems( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic research is needed to better understand the potential risk of dangerous biological agents that are unintentionally or intentionally introduced into a water distribution system. We report on our capabilities to conduct such studies and our preliminary investigations. In 2004, the Biofilms Laboratory was initiated for the purpose of conducting applied research related to biofilms with a focus on application, application testing and system-scale research. Capabilities within the laboratory are the ability to grow biofilms formed from known bacteria or biofilms from drinking water. Biofilms can be grown quickly in drip-flow reactors or under conditions more analogous to drinking-water distribution systems in annular reactors. Biofilms can be assessed through standard microbiological techniques (i .e, aerobic plate counts) or with various visualization techniques including epifluorescent and confocal laser scanning microscopy and confocal fluorescence hyperspectral imaging with multivariate analysis. We have demonstrated the ability to grow reproducible Pseudomonas fluorescens biofilms in the annular reactor with plate counts on the order of 10{sup 5} and 10{sup 6} CFU/cm{sup 2}. Stationary phase growth is typically reached 5 to 10 days after inoculation. We have also conducted a series of pathogen-introduction experiments, where we have observed that both polystyrene microspheres and Bacillus cereus (as a surrogate for B. anthracis) stay incorporated in the biofilms for the duration of our experiments, which lasted as long as 36 days. These results indicated that biofilms may act as a safe harbor for bio-pathogens in drinking water systems, making it difficult to decontaminate the systems

How people with dementia communicate( Visual )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As dementia progresses, people with Alzheimer's disease lose more and more of their verbal skills, but even when you can't understand all the words, you learn to 'read' the person's meddage by listening for the grain of truth in the message, for the feelings expressed in the message and for the clues in body language and tone of voice. This program examines specific speech patterns in real residents."--Back of container

Part 2 deals with advanced dementia, the loss of verbal skills, and emotional instability. Therapies for the various stages of dementia such as, basic courtesy, reality orientation, reassurance/validation, reminiscences, companionship, humor, reading body language and tone of voice are discussed

Barriers to communication and how to overcome them( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A closed door, an exasperated expression, a noisy workstation, a cultural misunderstanding--all of these are examples of "noise," a general term for anything that gets in the way of effective communication. The key to overcoming communication barriers is to be able to identify and understand them. This program explains the various types of noise and details specific examples of physical, organizational, emotional, nonverbal, cultural, language-related or written barriers. Through expert interviews and creative vignettes, the video offers solutions to overcoming these common communication barriers
