  • Ralph Steinman discovered, in 1973, a new cell type that he called the dendritic cell. He speculated that it could be important in the immune system and went on to test whether dendritic cells could activate T cells, a cell type that has a key role in adaptive immunity and develops an immunologic memory against many different substances. In cell culture experiments, he showed that the presence of dendritic cells resulted in vivid responses of T cells to such substances.

The stories of your products, your producers and the species you are working to conserve are very important in building a relationship with green consumers.

  • The remit of the long-term care insurance funds is to ensure the supply of permanent care for their insured and to eliminate shortcomings in quality. They consequently control the quality of the care supplied. Nevertheless, their ability to ensure the supply of care is limited by the fact that they have no appropriate influence on the creation, promotion or maintenance of an LTC infrastructure. This task is assigned to the states. Furthermore, the LTC transfers are paid by the insurance funds.

  • Few people agree on how to plan projects. Often, much of the time spent during planning is getting people to agree on how the planning should be done. I think people obsess about plan- ning because it’s the point of contact for many different roles in any organization. When major decisions are at stake that will affect people for months or years, everyone has the motivation to get involved. There is excitement and new energy but also the fear that if action isn’t taken, opportunities will be lost.
