The intent of server education is to help servers develop the knowledge and skills that support responsible alcohol service. By law, classes must take 3 hours and cover the following topics: The effects of alcohol on the body and behavior, including the interaction of alcohol with other drugs. Washington's alcohol sale and service laws, including drunk driving laws. Intervention techniques for dealing with intoxicated and underage customers. Responsible marketing and management procedures. At the end of each class, students take a multiple-choice test. Students need a score of 80% to pass. More than 99% of students pass the test the first time they take it. Students who fail may retake the test as many times until they pass the test. The test is designed to reinforce the learning process. It is not used to exclude students from the alcohol industry.
I have followed this post and have re-read it many times. I am intrigued by the design and have most parts cut to make it in a 2M size. I also am unclear about the dimensions relating to the mast decoupling stub. I understand that the stub is "about" a quarter wave in length. However, your response to cj calhoun still leaves me scratching my head! I must be missing something, but the graphics do not seem to represent the distance "from the (upper?) tip of the mast decoupling stub to the point just below the J of the traditional J antenna" anywhere near 1/2 wavelength. Can you please clarify?
Basophils arise and mature in bone marrow. When activated, basophils degranulate to release histamine , proteoglycans (. heparin and chondroitin ), and proteolytic enzymes (. elastase and lysophospholipase ). They also secrete lipid mediators like leukotrienes ( LTD-4 ), and several cytokines . Histamine and proteoglycans are pre-stored in the cell's granules while the other secreted substances are newly generated. Each of these substances contributes to inflammation. Recent evidence suggests that basophils are an important source of the cytokine, interleukin-4 , perhaps more important than T cells . Interleukin-4 is considered one of the critical cytokines in the development of allergies and the production of IgE antibody by the immune system. There are other substances that can activate basophils to secrete which suggests that these cells have other roles in inflammation.
