Preservation Power of Honey Discuss with a partner Why does food spoil? What conditions make this more likely? How do we prevent the following foods from spoiling?
Beef jerky Bread Milk Pickles Raw steak Cucumber Cupcakes Croutons
Twinkies What does bacterial growth look like? Petri dishes with growth medium Bacteria growing in a petri dish What is a zone of inhibition? Bacteria is evenly applied to growth medium in a petri dish Antibiotic discs are added
Petri dish is incubated to promote bacterial growth Zone of inhibition: the area around the disc that contains no bacterial growth Antibiotic disc Bacteria growing
No bacteria growing Measuring effectiveness of antibiotics Antibiotics are not equally effective against all types of bacteria. Some work better than others. How might we judge if antibiotics are effective or not? Measuring a zone of inhibition
Use a metric ruler to measure the diameter of the empty area surrounding the disc in millimeters If no bacterial growth was inhibited, report the size of the disc What are the sizes of zones of inhibition pictured here? Honey What have we learned about honey?
How can we apply what we learned to benefit society? Turbidity What is turbidity? How does measuring turbidity help us to determine bacterial growth in milk? Image credits

Four criteria for a reportable event include (1) a patient, (2) a reporter, (3) a suspect drug and (4) an adverse event. Social Media Listening. We have taken a stance of first de-identifying the poster / patient prior to analysis...
Aim: Define the contribution of PGE2 and its receptor EP4 to intestinal blood flow regulation in preterm neonates with NEC. Methods: Rat pup model of NEC. At 48hours of age, intestinal laser Doppler blood flow was assessed at baseline and...
