Moving Questions: A History of Membrane Transport and by Joseph D. Robinson

By Joseph D. Robinson

This booklet describes part a century of development in mainstream parts of organic learn: membrane shipping, first and foremost a spotlight of physiologists, and oxidative phosphorylation, before everything a spotlight of biochemists. Robinson indicates how the improvement of recent explanatory versions had all of sudden merged those inquiries right into a new box, bioenergetics. within the overdue Nineteen Thirties, causes for the uneven distribution of ions among cells and their environments invoked absolute impermeabilities of the cell's surrounding membranes. yet new experiments contradicted that concept and validated that forming the transmembrane distributions required metabolic power, implying the participation of lively delivery "pumps." next stories pointed out, remoted, and characterised those pumps as enzymes coupling ionic shipping to the intake of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), an "energy-rich" molecule serving as a mobile power shop. within the overdue Nineteen Thirties oxidative phosphylation, the method of coupling ATP synthesis to oxidative metabolism, was once pointed out. The explanatory version rising within the subsequent a long time, despite the fact that, didn't keep on with the enzymatic precedents of recognized metabolic phosphorylations yet particularly embodied the primary that metabolic oxidations force lively delivery pumps to create transmembrane distribution of ions, with those ionic asymmetries then riding ATP synthesis. It used to be found that ATP intake can shape ionic asymmetries; ionic asymmetries can force ATP formation; and ionic asymmetries-like ATP-can additionally strength different mobile features.

Responsible Communication: Wie Sie von PR und by Gabriele Faber-Wiener

By Gabriele Faber-Wiener

In Zeiten von Finanzkrise, wachsender Vernetzung, Wertewandel und einer Gesellschaft, die Unternehmen, Politik und Institutionen immer mehr hinterfragt, gewinnt Transparenz zunehmend an Bedeutung. Speziell dort, wo company Social accountability (CSR) zum integralen Bestandteil des Wirtschaftens herangewachsen ist, wird mehr denn je klar: Viele herkömmliche, gelernte Rezepte greifen nicht mehr, um Glaubwürdigkeit, Vertrauen und Legitimation in der Öffentlichkeit zu bewahren. Offenheit und Flexibilität im administration sind gefragt – und eine neue Qualität in der Kommunikation. Kommunikation ist ein Spiegel der Haltung. Unternehmen und Institutionen, die Nachhaltigkeit und Verantwortung in ihrem Wertekatalog verankert haben, müssen sich bewusst sein, dass diese proklamierten Werte verstärkt hinterfragt und auf ihre Glaubwürdigkeit abgeklopft werden. Verantwortliches administration verlangt nach einer wertebasierten, zukunftsfähigen und diskursorientierten Kommunikation.
Dies ist Kern dieses Buches. Es setzt sich mit den Voraussetzungen für glaubwürdige Kommunikation zusammen, untersucht die Praxis der PR und CSR-Kommunikation auf ihre Glaubwürdigkeit hin und entwickelt ein neues Konzept, das die Verantwortung der Kommunikatoren ausdehnt: weg von einer zumeist eindimensionalen Positiv-Kommunikation, hin zum offenen und selbstkritischen Diskurs.

Responsible conversation heißt: Sie handeln und kommunizieren: ausgewogen - selbstkritisch - ethik-basiert - dialogisch

Nur dann ist Glaubwürdigkeit gewährleistet – frei nach der Devise „Verantwortung heißt Antwort geben“
