Abstract

My first school, like everyone else's, was a local nursery school run by an old spinster who ironically enough loved children. At this lovely little school I learnt nothing apart from how nasty little girls were and how objectionable the taste of milk was. I was not at this nursery school very ‐long as the spinster retired. My thoughtful mother believed that I was too young to go to boarding school so I was sent to the local primary school.

Abstract

The public schools, as demonstrated last month at Oxford, are as far away from accepting any community responsibility in education as they ever were. Indeed if Mr Howarth, High Master of St Paul's, is typical of HMC opinion, they have abandoned all pretence of being anything more than academic forcing houses based on exclusion, examinations, and a most distasteful brand of out‐and‐out snobbery.

Abstract

As an exercise in political technology this year's annual meeting of the Headmasters' Conference must win a prominent place among the historical events of the post‐war educational world. Its handling of the Public Schools Commission report disclosed a tactical ability fit to be admired by those Left‐wing pragmatists its members have so generously donated to West‐minster over the past 30 years.

Abstract

The equations of motion developed by R. P. Coleman have been evaluated for a particular helicopter configuration and a large number of different combinations of rotor and fuselage damping. These results are displayed graphically and reveal the dependence of the unstable range on rotor and fuselage damping. Some of the conclusions are in disagreement with those reached by Coleman. Both viscous and friction rotor dampers are considered.

Abstract

In 2013, the National Mutual Acceptance (NMA) of single ethical review was introduced into the Australian public health sector to address the timeliness of multisite clinical trials. A clinical trial is usually designed to test the effects of an experimental therapeutic product. While all research involving humans must comply with ethical guidelines, clinical trials testing products in Australia are also subject to stringent regulatory controls making the need to meet trial milestones critically import. Commercial clinical trials offer participating research sites substantial financial and clinical advantages. Concerns that bureaucratic processes have impeded commercial investment have influenced countries, including Australia, to introduce single ethical review, where one ethics review is accepted at multiple sites participating in the same research project. Although a central tenet of the NMA is the standardization of the behaviors and procedures of research review, concerns of inconsistency remain. This raises the question of whether the NMA does lead public healthcare agencies to adopt similar research governance practices.

A questionnaire survey was undertaken to explore the current experiences (n = 149) of the NMA in Victorian public health agencies, and 21 semi-structured interviews were conducted to explore expectations of the future of the NMA. The findings indicated that, while there was conformity to many of the process requirements of the NMA, a persistent focus on the needs of each individual healthcare agency rather than on complying with the national system weakened pressure on agencies to adopt standardization.

The NMA has the capacity to be a powerful tool in delivering quality clinical trial outcomes, maximize research resources and create dependable performance metrics if consistent policies and governance are followed.

Abstract

THIS issue of The Library World marks the commencement of a new volume, and we take the opportunity of thanking our many readers for their continued good feeling and support. It is a pleasure to us to record the fact that we are able to enlarge this initial number of the volume and that we feel the time has come when we shall make such enlargement a permanency, without any corresponding increase in the subscription price.

Abstract

GREAT progress has been made in recent years in both fields of aircraft design and manufacture. No longer is the designer completely in the dark regarding the operational loads his aircraft will have to sustain, nor completely ignorant of the capabilities of its structure. Progress has brought knowledge of the sort of operational load likely to be encountered in both flight and landing operations as well as powerful methods of analysis of aircraft structures. Even that, however, is not enough, for without a thorough understanding of the possibilities and properties of the materials at the designer's command, he cannot hope to utilize such knowledge to the full.

Abstract

It seems fitting, in this particular issue of Technical Education at the present time, for a former editor of an educational monthly — New Education — whose magazine changed ownership last December in somewhat dramatically sudden circumstances, to seize a second chance of looking forward to try to make out future trends. Is the Black Paper an off beat isolated phenomenon, soon to fizzle out of the second lease of life which Ted Short gave it at Easter? Or is it the first of a series of attacks on the steady reform of educational institutions and curriculum which has been going on over the last twenty five years? Is Tom Howarth, with his new views on culture and anarchy, a second Matthew Arnold, come to pluck English Education from the slough of despond into which it has been steadily sinking for years? Or is his book the last gasp from a fading corner of the educational scene, which has only lasted so long because class attitudes and institutions are so deeply ingrained into English society? It may be still too early to say. But it looks as though this sort of debate — or one very like it — will go on in the educational world into the forseeable future.

Abstract

Although textiles is one of the oldest crafts and goes back to prehistory—it is believed that weaving grew up in the neolithic or later stone age—our modern civilization is producing such rapid and numerous developments in so many aspects of the subject that the individual is hard put to keep up with only a fraction of them.
