  • Building Diverse Teams for Content Success
    Building Diverse Teams for Content Success Andrew Lawless, Team Lawless Recorded: Oct 17 2017 53 mins
    Making content teams work together is a struggle. On the one hand, creating engaging and sharable content requires a diverse team of professionals—from copywriters, editors, and subject matter experts to content engineers, user experience designers, and content marketers. On the other hand, we are pitting people who need data and a benchmark to make decisions against those that plan and execute without that information. Some look for short-cuts to formal processes, while others desire and follow complex workflows and plans. Some are visionary while others are only worried about the here and now.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Andrew Lawless, for a free, one-hour webinar focused on helping content teams collaborate better regardless of their differences. You'll learn about a methodology that has been successfully used to coach hundreds of thousands of employees—from Fortune 500 companies to smaller family-owned businesses.

You'll learn how to ease conflict, strain, and tension in team relationships and you discover how to provide information to people in a way that they can best absorb it.
  • Bringing Order to the Chaos of Third Party Risk Management
    Bringing Order to the Chaos of Third Party Risk Management Sam Abadir, Director of Product Management, LockPath; Dan Schrotberger, Director of Sales Engineering, LockPath Recorded: Oct 17 2017 41 mins
    The complexity of vendor risk management increases every day, as does its importance to organizations that rely on third parties. Regulators are increasing their focus on potential third-party risk. Risks assessments for business processes and vendor management are being integrated, mapped to organizational risks, and mined for patterns and trends. Some organizations are even extending vendor risk management to assess the vendors of vendors.

    Assessing and monitoring vendors and third parties is an arduous task if conducted manually. A manual process of inputting data, assigning risk levels, and following up requires multiple employees dedicating numerous hours. A manual process also makes it difficult to ensure harmony between an organization’s policies, regulatory requirements and those of the vendor or supplier.

    On the other hand, a robust governance, risk management, and compliance system like the Keylight Platform can help organizations identify, classify, monitor, and recommend risk mitigation to support business operations and regulatory requirements.

    In this webinar, LockPath’s vendor risk management experts provide an overview of the challenges to efficient and effective vendor risk management, and they demonstrate how GRC can bring order to the chaos of vendor risk management.

  • Recent developments in RAFT agents
    Recent developments in RAFT agents Dr. James Gardiner-Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Melissa Skidmore-Senior Research Scientist, Dr. Graeme Moad (CSIRO) Recorded: Oct 11 2017 41 mins
    This webinar will provide an overview of recent advances in RAFT agents (900150, 900157 and 900158). New dithiocarbamate RAFT agents are extremely versatile, RAFT agents with wide-spread monomer applicability. The RAFT agents have the distinct advantage of low odour levels and in addition to this and the derived polymers do not develop odour on storage as no low molar mass thiols are generated. In most cases they are an appropriate replacement for trithiocarbonate RAFT agents. The new RAFT agents have the ability to control polymerization of both MAMs (more activated monomers) and LAMs (less activated monomers) and have been shown to be suitable for the synthesis of poly(MAM)-block-poly(LAM), specifically poly(DMA)-blockpoly(VAc).

  • Designing for the IoT
    Designing for the IoT Charles J. Lord, PE, President & Chief Trainer, Blue Ridge Advanced Design and Automation Recorded: Oct 11 2017 63 mins
    As we learned in our first class, we need a cohesive platform of tools and various ‘building blocks’ to build a robust cloud-based IoT solution to meet the needs of even high-reliability IIoT applications. In this second class on cloud-based design for the IoT, our expert instructor will discuss how a combination of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and software-defined architecture (SDA) from Wind River® is ushering in a new era of IoT innovation. Some of the topics to be covered include development tools and example pre-build platforms for many popular targets, connectivity and control APIs, and network and infrastructure platforms and services. Our instructor will also cover the topics of how to assure our communications and data are secure and properly communicated, filtered, collected, and safely stored. Current industry estimates are that only 10-25% of data is actually collected and stored – when this data increases by perhaps two orders of magnitude in the next five years, how can we assure that we can indeed collecting, communicating, using, and saving the data we need? We will look at some of the answers to that question in this class. Sponsored by Wind River.
  • Automation of the in vitro micronucleus assay using imaging flow cytometry
    Automation of the in vitro micronucleus assay using imaging flow cytometry Matthew. A Rodrigues, PhD., Research Scientist with Amnis-Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany Oct 24 2017 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The in vitro micronucleus assay is one of the most widely used tests to quantify genotoxicity and cytotoxicity, especially as a screening tool in the development of chemicals and pharmaceuticals. Micronuclei (MN) are formed from whole chromosomes or chromosome fragments that lag behind during the metaphase-anaphase transition and are excluded from the main nucleus following division. MN form into small, rounded bodies surrounded by their own nuclear envelope and represent chromosomal mutations that can be used as an endpoint in genotoxicity testing. Typically performed by manual microscopy, the MN assay is laborious and can be subject to scorer bias. To overcome this, automated microscopy and conventional flow cytometry methods have been developed. However, these methods suffer from several limitations such as the requirement to create high quality slides in the case of microscopy and the lack of visual confirmation of MN in the case of flow cytometry. The ImageStream®X (ISX) imaging flow cytometer has the potential to overcome these limitations as it combines the speed, statistical robustness and rare event capture capability of conventional flow cytometry with high resolution fluorescent imagery.
    In this webinar, adaptation of the in vitro MN assay to an imaging flow cytometry-based method will be described. Using the ISX Mark II imaging flow cytometer, images of micronucleated mono- and binucleated cells as well as polynucleated cells can be captured at a high flow rate and automatically identified and scored in the Image Data Exploration and Analysis Software (IDEAS®) that accompanies the ISX. A data analysis template created specifically for this application allows for the determination of both genotoxicity and cytotoxicity following treatment with known clastogens and aneugens. This work is the first demonstration of fully automated method for performing the in vitro MN assay on an imaging flow cytometry platform.
  • It's Not Just Content — It's An Experience
    It's Not Just Content — It's An Experience Andrea Ames, CEO and Founder of Idyll Point Group Oct 24 2017 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As content professionals, we are inundated every day with competing priorities, reduced resources, and a business climate that changes faster than we can assimilate. As a result, we are typically heads-down and focused on creating the content for our customer deliverables—everything from white papers and data sheets to text in the user interface and instructions to self-paced and instructor-led training. And often this gives us a very detail-focused view of the world. We tend to lose sight of the bigger-picture problem that our customers are trying to solve. In the end, we create detailed, accurate documentation or training or marketing content, but that content doesn't interoperate well with other content. We miss the forest because we're focused completely on the trees.

    While content is incredibly important, the experience in which it is delivered can make or break a reader's success with that content. When it is delivered relative to the other activities the reader is doing, where within those activities (or journey) it is presented to the reader, and in what forms and formats—those are key success factors that make up the experience side of the equation.

    Join me, Scott Abel, The Content Wrangler, and my special guest, Andrea Ames, for this practical one-hour webinar. Andrea will discuss her framework for designing the experience we are striving to achieve for our clients and customers, including the key components of a great experience; what it takes to achieve consistency across multiple content creators within a single experience design; the steps for designing a great experience, and tips for validating that the experience meetings the needs of your customers.

    UNEP (the United Nations Environment Programme) first raised the issue of mercury as the most important, unregulated, pollutant in the global environment in the mid 2000s and, in response, established the first INC (International Negotiating Committee) and the UNEP Partnership Areas in 2008. The IEA CCC has been lead of the Coal Partnership since its inception.

    Coordinating mercury reduction programmes throughout the world will include numerous social, economic and technological challenges and will be dependent on technology transfer as well as significant international funding. By the time COP1 of Minamata eventually closed, 83 countries had signed the Minamata convention and committed to developing national implementation plans. The next step will be the acceptance of those plans and, ultimately, the movement of these plans into action.

  • No More LC:  Microextraction Coupled with Direct MS Analysis
    No More LC: Microextraction Coupled with Direct MS Analysis Olga Shimelis, Principal R&D Scientist and R&D Supervisor, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany Oct 26 2017 1:30 pm UTC 90 mins
    Mass spectrometry (MS) is an accepted research tool for both academic and industrial laboratories. As MS continues to gain ground in clinical and industrial testing, the requirements for high throughput, high sensitivity and high accuracy analyses put more emphasis on sample preparation. Solid Phase Microextraction (SPME) is well suited for this purpose as it requires minimal sample, provides pre-concentration of analytes, and allows for quantitative determinations.
    This webinar will focus on the use of microextraction devices for direct MS analysis for applications that do not require chromatographic separation. Such analysis often results in very high throughput and more immediate results in comparison to traditional methods. Several Direct MS interfaces will be reviewed. The relevant overview of the literature as applied to the direct MS analysis of microextracted samples will be presented. The presentation also will discuss in more detail the coupling of Direct Analysis Real Time (DART) with a new type of solid phase microextraction devices (known as BioSPME).

    Reducing the Attack Surface via Internet Reconnaissance, Automation & Mitigation Benjamin Powell, Technical Marketing Manager; John Carnes, Anthem; Dustin Sachs, Navigant; Brandon Dunlap (Moderator) Oct 26 2017 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Business digital transformation has outpaced conventional cyber defenses. Adversaries no longer attack Firewalls or maneuver laterally between systems to wreak havoc on operations, customers and brands. External threats are the root cause for the majority of today’s incidents and breaches. A recent IDG survey revealed that 70% of enterprises have zero to modest confidence in the ability to reduce their digital attack surface. VA scanners, pen testing and systems tools all provide visibility and control of internal assets, but they fail on the vast number of dynamic web systems, web apps and other components connected to a business and are blind to subsidiaries, ecosystem, global and hosted sites, and service providers - all with possible susceptibility. How can SOC and GRC teams gain the active discovery and direct insight needed to respond to exposed external facing exposed assets - even those not under control of IT? Join RiskIQ and (ISC)2 on October 26, 2017 at 1:00PM Eastern as we explore how to leverage advanced internet reconnaissance, automation, and mitigation to address mounting digital attack surface gaps.

  • Characterisation of Host-Cell Proteins using Mass Spectrometry Enables Effective
    Characterisation of Host-Cell Proteins using Mass Spectrometry Enables Effective Dr Li Zang Oct 31 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Common mammalian cell lines used for biopharmaceutical production include Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO), NS0 and Human Embryonic Kidney (HEK) cells. Each of these cell lines has been found with over 20,000 genes coded in their genome, which can result in over 10,000 proteins expressed at the same time in these cells. These proteins can be secreted from the living host cells or released to the cell culture supernatant upon lysis of the host cells during the cell culture. Biopharmaceuticals produced using these cell lines can be co-purified with a subset of the host-cell proteins (HCPs) in the cell culture supernatant.

    These co-purified HCPs are considered process-related impurities for biopharmaceuticals. The HCPs can cause potential safety risks by introducing anti-HCP response in the patients. Depending on the biological functions of the residual HCPs, other potential impacts reported include lowering the biopharmaceutical protein stability and affecting the efficacy of the biopharmaceutical protein by exacerbating the symptoms.

  • Disposables – Suitability and Process Economy In Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing
    Disposables – Suitability and Process Economy In Biopharmaceutical Manufacturing Dr Joachim Walter Nov 1 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Since the introduction of disposables and gaining popularity of Single-use Technology (SUT) for biopharmaceutical manufacturing there is nevertheless an ongoing controversial discussion on the advantages and disadvantages versus a conventional stainless steel environment.

    In a “classical” facility design any validation cost effort can easily be distributed to a considerable number of production runs thus contributing only to a non-decisive amount to the overall production costs. The scale for such plant is nearly unlimited as is the scale of operation. The “flexible” approach using disposables and single-use equipment offers significant advantages regarding changeover work and time thus a high throughput of different processes will definitely take profit as any cleaning and related validation and costly analytics doesn’t apply to a larger extent.

    Despite the potential benefits loudly advertised by the respective industry, these potential advantages derived from single-use equipment and disposables can be significantly diminished by lack of detailed process cost analysis, missing economic analysis and cost comparison between conventional and SU technologies as well as underestimating the cost of long term dependency on consumables. Due to missing appropriate standards, there is a widely non-compatibility between the equipment and consumables of the various suppliers, resulting in a strong dependence on the consumables of a single supplier once a single-use equipment has been purchased, curiously leaving some customers with surprise that they hardly have any room for price negotiations on the required consumables.
    This paper’s focus is on the very different arguments for the application of SU equipment and consumables, including advantages and limitations of SUT, understanding improvement of process robustness, contribution to lean production as well as environmental impact of disposables.
