a: biofilm ~
b: a slime home

What:

"More so than many bacteria, Pseudomonas can be extraordinarily resistant to antibiotics, largely because the bacteria form themselves into sticky clusters called biofilms. A biofilm is like a slime home base where billions of bacteria stick together, becoming hundreds of times more resistant to detergents and antibiotics than when they're circulating alone."

a: Biofilm ~
b: a living tissue

What:

"The mature, fully functioning biofilm is like a living tissue on the pipe or wall surface. It is a complex, metabolically cooperative community made up of different species each living in a customized micro-niche. Biofilms are even considered to have primitive circulatory systems"

a: biofilm ~
b: protective living cocoon

What:

"Antibiotics do not reduce the biofilm; they simply put it into a dormant state with a couple of bullet holes in it, so when you stop taking antibiotics, the problem returns like nothing happened. The biofilm is like a protective living cocoon, which quite frankly is an ingenious evolutionary survival trick, but only when it's being used for good, not evil."

a: biofilm ~
b: a sticky nylon stocking

What:

"The biofilm that wraps itself around all your teeth, near and under the gums, can only be removed by your dentist or hygienist. This biofilm is like a sticky nylon stocking that traps bacteria and its compounds and protects them from your toothbrush, floss and mouth rinse."

a: Film Adaptation ~
b: Science Communication

What:

"To do that the place you have to start is finding the core of why is this cool, why it matters, why should you care. You have to find those hooks within the foundations of what you're actually looking at, find those things the audience can connect with, and bring those out. You make those clear and get them on board, and from there you can build out wherever complex or crazy place you want to go, be it evolutionary biology or: "

a: film adaptation ~
b: textual editing

What:

"With Doran's, Olivier's, Zeffirelli's, and Branagh's Hamlets in mind, we will begin to discuss both how film adaptation is like textual editing and how editing Hamlet is linked to specific interpretive issues, mostly regarding characters, and how the play's own questioning of inwardness puts our assumptions about character and performance. Directors of film or stage production in turn may edit the text into a script."

a: good film editing ~
b: visual casualty

What:

There is logic in the film, like paragraphs, one leads to the next. This is whole and good and makes for a good viewing and complements a cause and effect story line. A unity if there ever was one.

Team Film As Team Nfl

a: Building film production deals ~
b: NFL team signing free agents
