In this Appendix John Hartley and Robin Merrifield of Tankerdale Ltd report the work they carried out on the Eglantine Table in 1996. Their account, which in places takes the form of notes rather than continuous prose, is here printed as received, apart from the description of work on the frame, which has been slightly abbreviated. Editorial clarifications appear in square brackets.
The report describes the complex structure of the inlaid table-top and its stand, details the restoration work, and names both the original materials and those encountered and used during restoration. Where locations such as ‘above’, ‘below’, ‘left’ and ‘right’ are indicated, they refer to the Table as viewed from the side of frieze C. For a colour reproduction of the whole top see Plate 2; for a diagram of the replacement parts see Plate 3. For definitions of some specialist terms used in the report, see the Glossary, pp. 246–50.
The original woods involved are listed below (in alphabetical order). Softwoods (pine, fir, spruce, etc.) and burr woods are notoriously difficult to identify precisely without microscopic examination, yet while these identifications are not the result of scientific examination, they are based on the very extensive experience of those who worked on the Table.
Structural woods: apple, ash, beech (also as dowels), lime, oak (dowels and supports), pear, softwood (dowels, possibly pine), walnut.
Inlaid woods: Acer (probably A. campestre, field maple), apple, bog oak, boxwood, elm, hazel(?) burr, holly, lime, mulberry, pear, plum, softwood (possibly pine), walnut.
The table top is divided into three boards, held together along their joints with oak dowels. The central panel is one solid board that runs the full length of the table top. The other two boards are formed from shorter length boards that have been glued together.
The Scaling-up Health-Arts Programme: Implementation and Effectiveness Research (SHAPER) project is the world's largest hybrid study on the impact of the arts on mental health embedded into a national healthcare system. This programme, funded by the Wellcome Trust, aims to study the impact and the scalability of the arts as an intervention for mental health. The programme will be delivered by a team of clinicians, research scientists, charities, artists, patients and healthcare professionals in the UK's National Health Service (NHS) and the community, spanning academia, the NHS and the charity sector. SHAPER consists of three studies – Melodies for Mums, Dance for Parkinson's, and Stroke Odysseys – which will recruit over 800 participants, deliver the interventions and draw conclusions on their clinical impact, implementation effectiveness and cost-effectiveness. We hope that this work will inspire organisations and commissioners in the NHS and around the world to expand the remit of social prescribing to include evidence-based arts interventions.
Mastoid surgery is an aerosol-generating procedure that involves the use of a high-speed drill, which produces a mixture of water, bone, blood and tissue that may contain the viable coronavirus disease 2019 pathogen. This potentially puts the surgeon and other operating theatre personnel at risk of acquiring the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 from contact with droplets or aerosols. The use of an additional drape designed to limit the spread of droplets and aerosols has been described; such drapes include the ‘Southampton Tent’ and ‘OtoTent’.
To evaluate the use of a novel drape ‘tent’ that has advantages over established ‘tent’ designs in terms of having: (1) a CE marking; (2) no requirement for modification during assembly; and (3) no obstruction to the surgical visual field.
Results and conclusion
During mastoid surgery, the dispersion of macroscopic droplets and other particulate matter was confined within the novel drape ‘tent’. Use of this drape ‘tent’ had no adverse effects upon the surgeon's manual dexterity or efficiency, the view of the surgical field, or the sterility. Hence, our findings support its use during mastoid surgery in the coronavirus disease 2019 era.
This article considers recent CJEU case law on the Brussels I Regulation. Two aspects of Article 7(1) (which applies to matters relating to a contract) are considered: the first is whether the contract must be between the parties to the case; the second is whether membership of an association should be regarded as constituting implied consent to be bound by decisions of the association so that jurisdiction to enforce them may be taken under Article 7(1). The article also discusses recent case law on who counts as a ‘consumer’ in terms of Article 17.
This Element introduces students, policy-makers, politicians, governments and business-people to this new discipline within economics. It presents the recent history of the subject and its range of coverage. Traditional topics covered include models of arms races, alliances, procurement and contracting, as well as personnel policies, industrial policies and disarmament. Newer areas covered include terrorism and the economics of war and conflict. A non-technical approach is used and the material will be accessible to both economists and general readers.
