    Graham Wood was a world-leading corrosion scientist who bridged both the aqueous (electrochemical) corrosion and high-temperature oxidation branches of the subject. His analytical predictions of depletion and enrichment profiles in substrate and scale during preferential oxidation have long been confirmed in practice. He also demonstrated that transient oxides can be vital solid lubricants in oxidative friction and wear processes. He elucidated ionic transport in amorphous anodic films, leading to precise models of pore initiation, development and closure, thus allowing the strict design of anodic films for practical application. He set up, and headed, the Corrosion and Protection Centre at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) and was instrumental in initiating the Corrosion and Protection Centre Industrial Service, which, respectively, became the world's largest academic centre on the study of materials degradation and the world's largest corrosion consulting organization. While keeping active in research, he held increasingly senior administrative roles, where he established a specialist graduate school and helped prepare UMIST to full independence from the Victoria University of Manchester.

    After the title, the abstract is the most read section of a journal research paper, freely available on the publisher’s website and in online databases. But it can easily fail to do its job – in several distinct ways, examples of which are examined here. To succeed, an abstract should be written as a micro-paper, focusing on five key components and prepared as carefully as the full paper, whose future success it determines.

    Climate change is impacting societies across the world and is an inevitable part of our future. Its impacts are multifaceted and difficult to predict, driven by physical changes to the climate system, shifting policy landscapes, geopolitical issues, technological developments and growing public demand for action. Companies therefore face the challenge of remaining resilient as a climate-changed future unfolds.Scenario analysis has a long history in helping companies prepare for complex and uncertain futures. Scenarios provide hypothetical constructs of possible future states that are used to challenge prevailing assumptions and to analyse business model resilience. Recently, it has become a focal point for corporate responses to climate change and associated disclosures, with it playing a core role in the 2017 Recommendations from the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).1 Climate scenario analysis helps companies to identify and prepare for the impacts that climate change will have on their business models by guiding a structured exploration of different possible futures to identify the most relevant risks and opportunities. It aims to enhance business resilience in a climate-changed future, by building capacity for anticipating surprises, identifying risks and opportunities, and collaborating across a company and its supply chain.The purpose of this report is to shed light on why and how companies get started with climate scenario analysis. It highlights the practical steps taken by the teams interviewed and the observed challenges and best practices. It may therefore provide scaffolding to help companies tailor their own process and approach to climate scenario analysis.The report examines the processes through which companies produce their scenario analyses, and how these shape their outcomes.

    Objectives: This paper outlines fieldwork procedures for Wave 4 of the COVID-19 Psychological Research Consortium (C19PRC) Study in the UK during November-December 2020. Methods: Respondents provided data on socio-political attitudes, beliefs, and behaviours, and mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress). In Phase 1, adults (N=2878) were reinvited to participate. At Phase 2, new recruitment: (i) replenished the longitudinal strand to account for attrition; and (ii) oversampled from the devolved UK nations to facilitate robust between-country analyses for core study outcomes. Weights were calculated using a survey raking algorithm to ensure the longitudinal panel was representative of the baseline sample characteristics. Results: In Phase 1, 1796 adults were successfully recontacted and provided full interviews at Wave 4 (62.4% retention rate). In Phase 2, 292 new respondents were recruited to replenish the panel, as well as 1779 adults from Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, who were representative of the socio-political composition of the adult populations in these nations. The raking procedure successfully re-balanced the longitudinal panel to within 1% of population estimates for selected socio-demographic characteristics. Conclusion: The C19PRC Study offers a unique opportunity to facilitate and stimulate interdisciplinary research addressing important public health questions relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    What is the impact of donating egg or sperm on the family lives of donors and their family? Using our research, we show how donors think about the connections created between their family and the family of the children born using their egg or sperm. And what do donors' partners, parents and brothers and sisters think about these connections? We use examples from our data to show how the impact of donation on family members.

    How do people who have donated their egg or sperm to others talk to their own children about their donation? Using examples from our University of Manchester research, we explore how donors talk about the connections between their children and children born from their egg or sperm. We also cover how children respond to the idea of having donor siblings and how their feelings change over time.

    Biographical maps use pictures, photos, and notes to take you back to a particular time in your life. You can make a map about your childhood home, your teenage years, a holiday, or moving to a new town. Instead of trying to fit your memories onto a timeline, biographical maps hook your memories onto important places or journeys. So if you are making a map of your teenage years, you might include photos of your old school, downloaded images of school buses, notes about your favourite nightclub (and music) and so on. You don't need any special equipment, just paper, pens and maybe some photos or pictures. You can make a map for your own pleasure, or to share with friends and families. Groups can make maps together.
