Say the term Krebs cycle around anyone who's had a biology course and watch for signs of stress. In this episode, host Kevin Patton provides a way to make the citric acid cycle less scary by playing into the horror of it all. And we revisit the idea of a standard terminology of anatomy. 00:46 | Krebs Cycle Game 15:22 | Sponsored by AAA 16:07| Proof of Concept 25:07 | Sponsored by HAPI 25:54 | Riding the Krebs Cycle 35:25 | Sponsored by HAPS 36:01 | Anatomical Terms Info 42:33 | Staying Connected If you cannot see or activate the audio player click here.

We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones. (Stephen King)   Krebs Cycle Game 14.5 minutes In the first season of this podcast, Kevin talked about storytelling—especially playful storytelling—being a key tool for effective college teaching. Especially in A&P. In this first of three segments on part of the story he tells about the Krebs cycle, Kevin talks about leaning into the horror of the Krebs cycle and making a game of that.

But coenzyme A grabs the acetyl and forces the pyruvate into the Krebs cycle.

Anatomy & Physiology Society theAPprofessor.org/haps   Arm's Length 5 minutes Two meters or six feet are often given as a minimum safe distance when distancing to reduce the spread of airborne viruses such COVID-19. As a practical guide, some sources state that this distance is about "two arm lengths." But Kevin questions whether "one arm span" may be what these sources really mean—and may be a better practical guide. Otherwise, people may be distancing at only about four feet and not the recommended two meters (6.5 feet)—about 60% of the most effective minimum distance. Because Kevin can never leave well enough alone. In the United States, the CDC recommends, "To practice social or physical distancing, stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces." my-ap.us/2PBO3AS The Canadian Health Service similarly advises, "keeping a distance of at least 2 arms lengths (approximately 2 metres) from others, as much as possible" my-ap.us/3fAWc32 "The arm span measurement is usually very close to the person's height.
