Once again this past week we’ve been busy scanning across the internet to find the latest information and Open University courses. The greatest university on the planet (we reckon anyway) is always innovating and leading the way on many issues that affect us around the globe and these news pieces reflect just that.

Why would you want to own your web domain? To a certain extent, we can all be web publishers now: social media lets us share words, pictures and videos, online office suites allow us to publish documents and spreadsheets, code repositories allow us to share code, sites like Shinyapps.io allow you to publish specific sorts of applications, and so on. So where do initiatives like a domain of one’s own come in, which provide members of a university (originally), staff and students alike, with a web domain and web hosting of their own?
Making a film is a creative exploit, but just like any other business, the aim is also to make money. The Business of Film has been created by The Open University, in association with Pinewood Studios – the leading provider of studio services to the global screen-based industries.

Until refrigeration was introduced in the 1880s, beer was only brewed in the colder months from September to April or May. Louis Pasteur’s work on fermentation also changed the process of brewing. The invention of pasteurisation helped ensure a consistent, controllable supply of beer, as well as saving lives through increased understanding of how to prevent diseases spreading.
