This book results from a symposium on the theme of 'The Physiology and Biochemistry of Plant Productivity' which was held at the University of Calgary from July 14-18, 1980, and was jointly sponsored by the Canadian Society of Plant Physiologists and the International Association of Plant Physiologists. The subject matter of the book deals with various aspects of nitrogen and carbon metabolism, their interrelationships and interdependence. The topics covered in the chapters highlight various interesting and important lines of research that are in progress. There is no attempt to provide a comprehensive coverage of the basic physiological knowledge upon which this research depend- important references are to be found at the end of each chapter, however, and the reader will be able to pursue these as necessary. An introductory chapter by Dr. R.G.S. Bidwell (winner of the C.S.P.P. Gold Medal in 1979) considers some implications of plant physiological research and the aims and responsibilities of plant physiologists. In the next two chapters Drs. J. Rigaud and L.E. Schrader (with R.J. Thomas) elaborate on current research on nitrate metabolism and nitrogen fixation, and how an understanding of these phenomena might be usefully applied towards the manipulation of plants to improve productivity. Dr. J.S.
Deventer and I leaned on the parapet and watched the curious things which were happening in Aramon across the river. We were the biggest boys in the school and kept even the Seniors in awe, being "Les Anglais" to them-and so familiar with the "boxe"-though Deventer was an Irishman, and I, Angus Cawdor, a Scot of the Scots.We had explained the difference to them many times by arguments which may have temporarily persuaded some, but without in the least affecting the fixed French notion that all English-speaking people are of English race.Behind us circulated the usual menagerie-promenade of the "Grands," gabbling and whispering tremendous secrets in files of two and three.
Having to look for a job sucks. It's painful, time consuming, you may be able to sell services or products, but having to sell yourself is humbling, and sometimes frustrating - because you don't know how wonderful you are! I've heard every excuse from 'well, you know, I'm 'old', so they won't hire me...' to '...I keep getting calls from recruiters and interviews, but then I never hear from them again...' You are selling a solution to a problem the company needs to fix. You might be getting in the door to the first interview, but if you are focused on asking them what they can do for you, and not really getting to the problem of what they need fixing, then you will not get that job. What I have found in 22 years of human resources, recruiting, and business ownership - many companies don't know what they are looking for, and the candidates don't know what to ask for. This compendium of my blogs and newspaper 'ask-the-expert' columns will help the job seeker learn more about the job market and how to really search for and get that 'dream job.'
