A good quality audio recording and, ideally, a verbatim (word for word) transcription of the interview is needed. For Framework Method analysis, it is not necessarily important to include the conventions of dialogue transcriptions which can be difficult to read (e.g. pauses or two people talking simultaneously), because the content is what is of primary interest. Transcripts should have large margins and adequate line spacing for later coding and making notes. The process of transcription is a good opportunity to become immersed in the data and is to be strongly encouraged for new researchers. However, in some projects, the decision may be made that it is a better use of resources to outsource this task to a professional transcriber.
MIRA is intended to enable consolidation of NIGMS support for multiple projects that may be disparate, so there is no obligation to develop a single unifying theme. Applicants should directly address the rationale underlying the balance of effort and the resources dedicated to each activity, and how the activities are distinct or complementary.
You may discuss your ideas with the program contacts named in PAR-20-117 or with the program officer who manages the portfolio of NIGMS applications and awards closest to your research. Portfolio descriptions can be found on the NIGMS website: Contacts by Research Area.
Follow the instructions in the SF424 R&R application guide [PDF] as modified by the instructions in the NOFO. In brief, this means that the scientific content of the application will rely mainly on the abstract, public health relevance statement, facilities and other resources page, biosketch and the six-page research strategy, plus details on the involvement of human subjects and vertebrate animals as necessary. Applications must also provide data/resource sharing and key resource authentication plans. Avoid duplicating material covered in other sections. Do not include lists of publications, except as part of the biosketch, or references except as necessary in the Bibliography & References Cited section of the Other Project Information Form.
All applications, regardless of the amount of direct costs requested for any one year, should address a Resource Sharing Plan that describes plans to share and store data and other resources, including model organisms and genomic data.
The reviewers will be asked to identify investigators with the potential to establish independent research programs that will make unique contributions to the investigator's area of science. Use the biosketch to emphasize your personal contributions to any publications resulting from work with former mentors. Evidence of independence may include preliminary data obtained since establishing an independent laboratory and publications separate from previous mentors, though these are not required and are not expected for those who apply shortly after achieving independence. The resources and environment section of the application should address laboratory space and equipment available to the investigator. A letter from a department chair or dean should attest to the commitment of the institution to the development of the PI, any specific commitments and plans for mentoring of the PI.
Applicants must use the R&R Detailed Budget form provided in the application package however, itemized budget information (other than equipment) is not required and will not be accepted. Instead, follow the instructions found in Section IV of PAR-20-117 regarding how to provide a total direct cost request for each budget period. This section also outlines the limited information required in the Budget Justification.
Reviewers will be asked to consider whether the budget is fully justified and reasonable in relation to the proposed work. In answering this question, it is anticipated that reviewers will consider the resources at the laboratory's disposal, and likelihood of efficient use of funds in the future. Reviewers will not be asked to recommend specific changes to the detailed budget or budget amounts.
Non-affected grants include NIGMS grants that support research resources, training, workforce development or diversity building, clinical trials, SBIR/STTRs, conference grants, some cooperative agreements, and the portion of a multiple component grant that is strictly a core. Funds currently supporting these activities will not be included in the MIRA funding level.

A California law called SB 1019 requires upholstered furniture to have a label stating whether or not the item contains flame retardants. More information on how to easily identify safer furniture can be found in this fact sheet.
OGE provides a collection of resources to help potential Presidential nominees to Senate-confirmed positions understand the Nominee process and the ethics rules to which they would be subject after confirmation.
For additional support or for classes not supported by campus resources, students can look into private tutoring options. While the university does not facilitate private tutoring, we've partnered with Tutor Matching Service to provide students a safe and structured marketplace to find a tutor AND to serve as a tutor. Private tutors set their own hours, rate, and course offerings. You can also search for tutors across the country who offer virtual tutoring in addition to Purdue students who serve as private tutors. Some departments and programs may also have their own listing of private tutors - your program's coordinator and advisors would be the best contact to see if those are an option.
Remember that your faculty and teaching assistants are also available to support you and your learning. Check your course's Brightspace page for more information on resources such as office hours, discussion boards, online review sessions, or other resources such as a course Q&A through Piazza.
22. These problems are closely linked to a throwaway culture which affects the excluded just as it quickly reduces things to rubbish. To cite one example, most of the paper we produce is thrown away and not recycled. It is hard for us to accept that the way natural ecosystems work is exemplary: plants synthesize nutrients which feed herbivores; these in turn become food for carnivores, which produce significant quantities of organic waste which give rise to new generations of plants. But our industrial system, at the end of its cycle of production and consumption, has not developed the capacity to absorb and reuse waste and by-products. We have not yet managed to adopt a circular model of production capable of preserving resources for present and future generations, while limiting as much as possible the use of non-renewable resources, moderating their consumption, maximizing their efficient use, reusing and recycling them. A serious consideration of this issue would be one way of counteracting the throwaway culture which affects the entire planet, but it must be said that only limited progress has been made in this regard.
25. Climate change is a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods. It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day. Its worst impact will probably be felt by developing countries in coming decades. Many of the poor live in areas particularly affected by phenomena related to warming, and their means of subsistence are largely dependent on natural reserves and ecosystemic services such as agriculture, fishing and forestry. They have no other financial activities or resources which can enable them to adapt to climate change or to face natural disasters, and their access to social services and protection is very limited. For example, changes in climate, to which animals and plants cannot adapt, lead them to migrate; this in turn affects the livelihood of the poor, who are then forced to leave their homes, with great uncertainty for their future and that of their children. There has been a tragic rise in the number of migrants seeking to flee from the growing poverty caused by environmental degradation. They are not recognized by international conventions as refugees; they bear the loss of the lives they have left behind, without enjoying any legal protection whatsoever. Sadly, there is widespread indifference to such suffering, which is even now taking place throughout our world. Our lack of response to these tragedies involving our brothers and sisters points to the loss of that sense of responsibility for our fellow men and women upon which all civil society is founded. 041b061a72
