Introducing ageing Introducing ageing

Description

Everyone is ageing, whatever their current age, and we live in a world where many people are living much longer than previous generations. This is often seen as a problem. But is it? This free course, Introducing ageing, will help you to think about this issue by introducing you to some key ideas in studying later life. First published on Tue, 08 Mar 2016 as Introducing ageing.

Legislating for transnational ageing: a challenge for the Dutch and French welfare states

Description

What motivates policymakers to initially develop these very specifically-targeted policy proposals which contradict the territorial logic of the welfare state? Transnational mobility presents fundamental challenges to nationally-bounded welfare states, which historically have tended to be organised according to territorial principles of solidarity among permanent residents / nationals. By developing legislation to create welfare benefits encouraging the durable return of specific groups of older migrants to their countries of origin, the Dutch and French governments have taken recent unusual steps to break this link between national solidarity and territorially-bounded consumption of welfare. This presentation asks what motivated policymakers to initially develop these very specifically- Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

TALAT Lecture 1204: Precipitation Hardening

Description

This lecture provides an introduction to the metallurgy of precipitation hardening, with a presentation of the fundamental mechanisms involved and illustrations from alloys which form the basis for engineering alloys. The Al-Mg2Si system is discussed in some detail because of its commercial importance. The microstructural aspects of precipitation hardening are illustrated by examples, many of which were obtained by electron microscopy; an outline of the background to electron microscopy is given in an appendix. Familiarity with the subject matter covered in earlier lectures 1201, 1202 and 1203 is assumed.

TALAT Lecture 1601: Process modelling applied to age hardening aluminium alloys

Description

This lecture describes the methodology for physical modelling of materials problems, with particular emphasis on heat treatment and welding of age hardening alloys materials; it establishes mathematical relations between different process variables (e.g. alloy composition, heat treatment procedure, welding conditions) and the alloy strength or hardness, based on sound physical principles (e.g. thermodynamics, kinetic theory, dislocation mechanics); it motivates faster process development, optimization of process and properties and development of real-time control. Knowledge in metallurgy, materials science, materials engineering is assumed.

TALAT Lecture 2101.01: Understanding aluminium as a material

Description

This lecture is an introduction to aluminium alloys, fabrication methods and properties. It provides information about the classification of aluminium alloys, new alloys and composites; shaping processes, processing chains and component shapes; microstructure and the interaction between microstructure and properties. It promotes understanding of the fact that the correct choice of materials demands knowledge of alloys, shaping processes and microstructure and the interaction among them. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief, general background information about aluminium is needed as an introduction of other subject areas of aluminium application technologies. This lecture is part of the self-contained course "Aluminium in Product Development", which is treated u

The Crawlers

Description

From 'Street Life in London', 1877, by John Thomson and Adolphe Smith: ?But old age, and want of proper food and rest, reduces them to a lethargic condition which can scarcely be preferable to death itself. It will be noticed that they are constantly dozing, and yet are never really asleep. Some of them are unable to lie down for days. They sit on the hard stone step of the workhouse, their heads reclining on the door, and here by old custom they are left undisturbed. Indeed, the policeman of this beat displays, I am told, much commiseration for these poor refugees, and in no way molests them. When it rains, the door offers a little shelter if the wind is in a favourable direction, but as a rule the women are soon drenched, and consequently experience all the tortures of ague and rheumatism in addition to their other ailments. Under such circumstances sound sleep is an unknown luxury, hence that drowsiness from which they are never thoroughly exempt. This peculiarity has earned them the nick-name of" dosses," derived from the verb to doze, by which they are sometimes recognized. The crawlers may truly be described as persons who sleep ?with one eye open.?

Staying alive- the tougher sex

Description

Film exploring the gender differences in lifespan. Considers various reasons as to why women live longer than men including sex, the possibility that men are more stressed and accident prone or that women have tougher genes. The film shows scientists working with statistical, genetic, environmental and archaeological evidence to show whether it was always so and whether it still will be 20 years from now. Participants in the programme include: Professor Steve Jones, Department of Genetics, University College London; Professor Linda Partridge, Department of Biology, University College London; Professor Theya Molleson, Natural History Museum; Professor David Barker, MRC Environmental Epidemiology Unit, Southampton University; Karen Dunnell, Divisional Director,Office of National Statistics;

Health and Social care - ageing and disability

Description

Moving into a care home can have a profound emotional impact on an individual – just the anticipation of residential care is one of the biggest sources of fear for the elderly. This resource discusses the role of social workers and care staff in supporting individuals through the transition, and how residential environments affect quality of life.

Does ubiquity overrule uniqueness? - A critique of the concept of openness for marginalised groups in online learning

Description

This Open Education Resource has been developed to raise awareness and stimulate thinking about access to, and the use of, open learning and Web 2.0 activities by typically excluded or marginalised groups. You are challenged to consider the extent and reasons for digital exclusion, to think about the complexity of digital inclusion and to consider how far it is possible to recognise uniqueness among the ubiquitous, ever present nature of digital information
