The charge to the NRC’s Committee on Atlantic Salmon in Maine (Box S-1) included an interim report that focused on the genetic makeup of Maine Atlantic salmon populations; that report was published in January 2002. The charge for the final report included a broader look at factors that have caused Maine’s salmon populations to decline and the options for helping them to recover. This is the final report.
In this small piece of work, I am doing a critical discourse analysis on a global text: The North Atlantic Treaty. The document is global because it is a direct product of the globalization process world-wide where the giant, powerful and influential capitalist western countries with their joined efforts, at first, have been trying to protect their benefits and then, more importantly, imposing their foreign - affair policies on other countries at their own will.
The epidermal mucus of fish species has been found to contain antimicro-bial proteins and peptides, which is of interest in regard to fish immunity.
An acidic extract from the epidermal mucus of the Atlantic cod (Gadus
morhua) was found to exhibit antimicrobial activity against Bacillus mega-terium, Escherichia coli andCandida albicans. This activity varied signifi-cantly when salt was added to the antimicrobial assay, and was eliminated
by pepsin digestion.
Kininogens are multifunctional proteins found so far mainly in mammals. They carry vasoactive kinins as well as participate in defense, blood coagulation and the acute phase response. In this study, novel kininogens were isolated from Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) and spotted wolﬃsh (Anarhichas minor) by papain-aﬃnity chromatography. The molecular mass of cod kininogen determined by MALDITOF mass spectrometry to be 51.0 kDa and it had pI values of 3.6, 3.9 and 4.4.
Recognition of viral nucleic acids by vertebrate host cells results in the syn-thesis and secretion of type I interferons (IFN-a⁄b), which induce an anti-viral state in neighboring cells. We have cloned the genes and promoters of
two type I IFNs from Atlantic salmon. Both genes have the potential to
encode IFN transcripts with either a short or a long 5¢-untranslated region,
apparently controlled by two distinct promoter regions, PR-I and PR-II,
Mitogen activated protein kinase kinase (MKK) 3 and 6 are the main p38
mitogen-activated protein kinase activators in mammals. In the present
study, three Atlantic salmon MKK6 orthologs were identified. The deduced
amino acid sequences of the salmon MKK6 proteins were highly similar to
mammalian MKK6 sequences, and they were ubiquitously expressed. All
three were shown to be upstream activators of salmon p38.
FLOYD A. BEAMS, PH.D., authored the first edition
of Advanced Accounting in 1979 and actively revised his text
through the next six revisions and twenty-one years while maintaining
an active professional and academic career at Virginia
Tech where he rose to the rank of Professor, retiring in 1995.
Beams earned his B.S. and M.A. degrees from the University
of Nebraska, and a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois.
Once the Sprint has started, the Team engages in another of the key Scrum practices: The
Daily Scrum. This is a short (15 minutes or less) stand-up meeting that happens every
workday at an appointed time, and everyone on the Scrum Team attends; in order to keep it
brief, everyone stands (hence “stand-up meeting”). It’s the team’s opportunity to report to
itself on progress and obstacles. One by one, each member of the team reports three (and only
three) things to the other members of the team: What they were able to get done since the last
meeting; what they’re...
The U.S. legal system is admired around
the world for the freedoms it allows the
individual and the fairness with which it
attempts to treat all persons. On the surface, it
may seem simple, yet those who have delved
into it know that this system of federal and
state constitutions, statutes, regulations, and
common-law decisions is elaborate and complex.
It derives from the English common law,
but includes principles older than England,
along with some principles from other lands.
This volume, the first in a series, presents the findings of an ambitious
project—to measure the impact of fishing on the ecosystems
that make up the North Atlantic Ocean and to propose ways to mitigate
that impact. The project arose from a request by Dr. Joshua
Reichert, the Director of the Environment Program of the Pew
Charitable Trusts, Philadelphia, to answer six specific questions
about the North Atlantic:
• What are the total fisheries catches from the ecosystems, including
reported and unreported landings and discards at sea?...
The scale of the challenge we face in managing these risks may be daunting, but this report means that the
Environment Agency and the organisations and people we work with can meet it more effectively. We must also
make sure we build a better relationship between those at risk and those who manage this risk. Much more can
be achieved by bringing all the interested parties together through the Environment Agency’s strategic overview
of all sources of flooding with a shared understanding of the risks.
About MARAMA The Mid-Atlantic Regional Air Management Association is an association of ten state and local air pollution control agencies. MARAMA's mission is to strengthen the skills and capabilities of member agencies and to help them work together to prevent and reduce air pollution impacts in the Mid-Atlantic Region. MARAMA provides cost-effective approaches to regional collaboration by pooling resources to develop and analyze data, share ideas, and train staff to implement common requirements.
