Drinking and Driving: Why do we have a limit?

The current GCSE science curriculum expects students to undertake a module about ‘drink-driving’. This requires students to consider whether the drink-drive limit in the UK should be zero. The highest number of drink-drive related accidents is observed in younger age groups; current campaigns preach a ‘don’t drink and drive’ message, but do not provide a balanced argument to demonstrate reasons for this. I produced a booklet aimed at 14-18 year olds to support the GCSE science curriculum and to aid general understanding of why we have a drink-drive limit in the UK. The booklet is designed to stimulate original thought and understanding, in accordance with Piaget’s theory of assimilation and accommodation. I conducted a thorough learning needs assessment and delivered an initial teaching session to a group of GCSE students. Their feedback helped to guide my development of a final resource in the format of an interactive booklet. Although drink-drive campaigns feature regularly in the media, this age group is often overlooked, as many are not yet able to drive. My resource is not aimed to echo these campaigns, but to support understanding of why they might exist. It also ties in with GCSE science curriculum, and can be used as an aid to coursework by students. Helping students of this age to gain a basic understanding of ‘drink-driving’ and stimulating them to form their own views and opinions may influence their future behaviours and attitudes.

Nervous system development (Visual mnemonic)

The process of neurulation drives development of the system we use to help understand and interact with the world around us. Sometimes this process might stray from its chosen path due to internal/external factors, leading to unusual pathologies. Understanding neurulation can help us work out how things go wrong.

The Thirst Axis

ADH (/vasopressin) is synthesised in the hypothalamus. From there it migrates in neurosecretory granules along axonal pathways to the posterior pituitary gland. Secretion of ADH is principally in response to changes in plasma osmolality. It acts on the collecting duct of the kidney to cause water reabsorption via the translocation of aquaporin channels in the CD lumen, and is therefore stimulated when we need to conserve water volume. It is stimulated by large falls in blood pressure or volume. At high concentrations, ADH also causes vasoconstriction.

The NHS performs around 150 000 arthroscopic knee operations a year, with more than half involving resection of the meniscus. Therefore, close scrutiny of this intervention in the United Kingdom is entirely appropriate, particularly in the context of the ongoing drive towards providing evidence based and value based care.

Checklist For a Marketing Programs Manager - Marketing Strategies That Drive Go-to-Market Plans - Four Quadrant

Anywhere from 1-10% of a company’s revenues may be allocated to the marketing budget and in most cases the people to programs ranges from 70:30 to 30:70.  A key role in Marketing is the Marketing Programs Manager who can effectively manage about $250-$350K but most companies don’t have a checklist for a Marketing Programs Manager.  The role is so critical that I wrote a document, What I would do if I was a Marketing Programs Manager, and sent it to the Director of Demand Creation and asked that his team paste this in their cubes as a daily reminder of what needs to be done each and every day to be successful in the role.  Here it is.
