  • In the past several years, there have been many developments in the materials for lead–acid batteries. Silver in grid alloys for high temperature climates in SLI batteries has increased the silver content of the recycled lead stream. Concern about silver and other contaminants in lead for the active material for VRLA batteries led to the initiation of a study by ALABC at CSIRO. The study evaluated the effects of many different impurities on the hydrogen and oxygen evolution currents in float service for flooded and VRLA batteries at different temperatures and potentials. ...

Related to this point, attitudes about ‘who is in control’ need to give greater appreciation to the importance of local ownership, and the practical ways in which this can be supported.

  • For many companies, social media use is still viewed as an experiment, where discrete projects are launched, usually by a few individuals in marketing or communications. Some said they limit their activities because they are in a “test” mode and lack resources to do more. Others said the organizations are wary because they perceive dangers in exposure and lack of control of the conversation on the Web. “Social media is a big ocean and we are pulling in a little bay where we are more protected,” said a global partner in a health and benefits consulting company.

  • In the O2– generating flavocytochrome b, the membranebound component of the neutrophil NADPH oxidase, electrons are transported from NADPH to O2 in the following sequence: NADPH fi FAD fi heme b fi O2. Although p-iodonitrotetrazolium (INT) has frequently been used as a probe of the diaphorase activity of the neutrophil flavocytochrome b, the propensity of its radical to interact reversibly with O2 led us to question its specificity. This study was undertaken to reexamine the interaction of INT with the redox components of the neutrophil flavocytochrome b. ...

  • America’s modern culture is unavoidably and irreversibly immersed in the media. Men, Women, grandmothers, teenagers, even children are subject to the powerful influence of media today. As Americans, we are subject to an abounding atmosphere of subliminal messages and culturally strive to be like those we see on television, in the movies, and walking down the streets of Hollywood. It is vital to realize in our hustle-bustle lives that a billboard with a favorite celebrity sprawled across it does not deserve respect and extensive praise.

  • Since the mid 1990s there has been a significant growth in the aggregate size and number of global property funds, largely fuelled by the investment of significant capital from institutional investors. This falls into two broad types: the 'core' universe and the 'opportunity' universe. This growth has seen fund managers launching new funds and raising more capital at a time when many have been unable to show clear evidence that their funds have provided historic out-performance against market benchmarks or performance objectives.

  • Thus, an overwhelming majority of the funds garnered from the urban non-retail segment are short-term investments. Further, this is not a short-term trend as it has been noticed over a period of a few years. Therefore, if the industry wants to change the age profile of the funds it has at its disposal, it needs to seriously look at the other investors i.e. retail investors and high net-worth individuals (HNIs) in the urban and semi-urban areas. This will also help fulfil the objectives of financial inclusion.
