    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • Ooooouuuuu….
      Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… LOOK @ ME… I am Special … with a capital S …
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • If you utilize slide transition animations:
      • Be consistent from start to finish
      • Shy away from sounds
      And…
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • A 10 Step Program of sorts …
      Step 1: Hold up your end with compelling material. Step 2: Keep it simple. Step 3: Minimize the number of slides & text.
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You The competition is rough...
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Then… Constructing a PowerPoint presentation… is like preparing for a backpacking expedition.
      • Plan ahead.
      • Review your goals.
      • Plan for emergencies.
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You TEXT: Less > More...
      • Sentences :o(
      • Bullet Points :o)
      • Consistent Style
      • Key Idea Only
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You 6 X 6
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • Where are we going and why?
      • Outline the itinerary.
      • Give some background info.
      • Get the tour bus moving.
      • Don’t be afraid to pull the bus over.
      • Bring it back to the beginning.
      Think APA writing format… Think tour bus…
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • A 10 Step Program of sorts …
      Step 1: Hold up your end with compelling material. Step 2: Keep it simple. Step 3: Minimize the number of slides and text. Step 4: Don’t parrot PowerPoint.
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Step 4: Don’t parrot PowerPoint.

      Step 1: Hold up your end with compelling material. Step 2: Keep it simple. Step 3: Minimize the number of slides and text. Step 4: Don’t parrot PowerPoint. Step 5: Time your remarks.
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • About 100 words per minute…
      • Repeat questions posed to you…
      • It is OK to pause before you answer a question…
      • Keep a healthy pace but keep in mind that if the audience senses that you are rushing...
      Time your remarks …

      • Some fonts are:
        • really ugly
        • hard to read and annoying
        • suitable for comics
        • More science fiction than scientific
      Careful with fonts styles… Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Arial Sans Serif Times New Roman The Big 3
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Oh so temping…
    • You don’t design ads for Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Backgrounds
      • Ask yourself:
      • Does it help the presentation?
      • Work with my text & graphics?
      • Does it seem out of place?
      • Will they wonder if I forgot to take my meds?
    • Making PowerPoint work for you. A 10 Step Program of sorts
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You The competition for the audience’s attention is rough. Don’t give them another excuse to tune you out!
      • Are You Kidding Me?
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You The beauty of “white space”…
      • Clean & crisp
      • Text pops off the page
      • Keeps the focus on your message
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Final word on backgrounds …
      • Ok, white space is not always best
      • Think contrasting colors
      • Think readability & clarity
      • Then… Try it out

Step 6: Give it a rest. Step 7: Careful with backgrounds and fonts. Step 8: Import images, graphics and other media
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Thank you, Al Gore …
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Got images?
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You RE: Graphs...
      • 2-D vs. 3-D
      • Adios grid-lines
      • Contrast with color
      • Wider is better
      • Provide the punch-line
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You For entering students N = 36 in 2006 N = 33 in 2007 It took centuries to decipher the Rosetta stone…  Your audience has 1 minute…
    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You Good slide vs. poor slide… Sometimes… the difference is subtle…
      • Fatty acid-binding protein (FABPs) belong to a family of intracellular lipid binding proteins of low molecular mass (14–15 kDa) with the putative general function of lipid trafficking ( 1 ).
      • The precise physiological functions of these proteins are as yet unclear, but it is hypothesized that they are important in intracellular transport and targeting of FA to specific membranous organelles and metabolic pathways.
      • Intestinal fatty acid-binding protein is abundantly produced in the enterocyte, where a second fatty acid-binding protein (FABP), liver FABP (LFABP), is also highly expressed ( 2 )

    • Sphingolipid and cholesterol cause distinct phase to form in pure lipid mixtures containing phospholipid with saturated fatty acid chains Mix DOPC (unsat’d) or DPPC (sat’d) at different ratios, with sphingolipid +/- cholesterol, at 23 o C or 37 o C. Assay by fluorescence quenching of marker that only sees sol phase lipid. Phase separation indicated by break in slope of quenching curves. Unsaturated fatty acids inhibit 2nd phase. See 2 nd phase at 23 o C with increasing DPPC . Need cholesterol to obtain 2nd phase at 37 o C. Cholesterol promotes 2 nd phase formation

    • Putting PowerPoint to Work for You
      • Get acquainted with the F7 key.
      • Employ the eyes of others .
      • If your not sure… cut it out.
      • Don't speak without rehearsing.
      Even Seinfeld rehearses and… He has nothing to say…
