More than 2,500 serotypes of Salmonella exist. However, only some of these serotypes have been frequently associated with food-borne illnesses. This book contains nineteen chapters which cover a range of different topics, such as the role of foods in Salmonella infections, food-borne outbreaks caused by Salmonella, biofilm formation, antimicrobial drug resistance of Salmonella isolates, methods for controlling Salmonella in food, and Salmonella isolation and identification methods.
Case studies for emerging risks in the second section include evidence-based
precautionary interventions to safeguard blood supplies, the evaluation of
nanoparticle deposition in the lung and nasal airways and the discourse surrounding
emerging potential health risks of genetically modified animals consumed as food.

Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 132. Infections Caused by Listeria monocytogenes
Infections Caused by Listeria monocytogenes: Introduction
Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that can cause serious infections, particularly in pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals. A ubiquitous saprophytic environmental bacterium, L. monocytogenes is also a pathogen with a broad host range. Humans are probably accidental hosts for this microorganism. L.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a water-soluble antioxidant, constituting one among the most
prevalent dietary antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables and beverages. Dietary intake is
usually in the area of 100 mg/d, with a DRI-RDA of 75mg/d (men) and 60mg/d (women)
(National Academy of Sciences, 2000). Food items rich in vitamin C include bell peppers (ca.
120 mg/100g) and citrus fruits such as oranges (ca. 50 mg/100g) (Souci, 2000). Vitamin C
contribution to the total antioxidant activity conferred e.g.
provides insight into the early assessment process and the application of precaution,
an often poorly described management action rarely captured in peer review
literature. The situation surrounding this potential new threat to blood safety was
largely resolved in mid-2011 when it was determined that the virus was an artifact
from contaminated patient samples and from contamination stemming from a
diagnostic test kit widely used by researchers.
In low- and middle-income countries, complications from pregnancy and
childbirth are the leading cause of death among girls aged 15 to 19. And in
2008, there were an estimated three million unsafe abortions among girls
in this age group.
The adverse effects of adolescent childbearing also extend to the health
of their infants. Perinatal deaths are 50% higher among babies born to
mothers under 20 years of age than among those born to mothers aged
20 to 29. The newborns of adolescent mothers are also more likely to have
low birth weight, with the risk of long-term effects....
In the literature on conflict and HIV/AIDS, African men are often presented in simplistic and
explicitly negative terms. It is generally taken for granted that those who use weapons are men
whilst those who suffer the consequences of conflict are women, and that men always hold power
in sexual relationships whilst women are always powerless. Certainly, African women and girls
have been made vulnerable by the behaviour of men and boys in conflict settings and in sexual
relationships. Yet the fact that gender hierarchies also oppress some men is seldom discussed.
We have no recognized standards in sales, but we have
plenty of sales models to choose from.
Many sales forces use all of them, some of them, or some
hybrid of them. Unfortunately, allowing the sales force to
follow their own model creates a considerable disparity of
which model is working best.
Let’s examine some of the models that have been
developed along the way and that sales trainers have been
delivering. Which ones are you using?
This model contains instructions on not only what
salespeople should say, but also what they should do while
We are all aware of the essential role that insurance services play as a commercial and
infrastructural service. From an infrastructural perspective it promotes financial and social
stability, mobilizes and channel savings, supports trade, commerce and entrepreneurial
activity and improves the quality of the lives of individuals. In a fast-globalizing world
economy, Governments the world over are faced with challenges relating to the
regulatory environment, emerging global trends in the insurance sector, technological
innovations and liberalization of the insurance sector.
Listeria monocytogenes is a food-borne pathogen that can cause serious infections, particularly in pregnant women and immunocompromised individuals. A ubiquitous saprophytic environmental bacterium, L. monocytogenes is also a pathogen with a broad host range. Humans are probably accidental hosts for this microorganism. L. monocytogenes is of interest not only to clinicians but also to basic scientists as a model intracellular pathogen that is used to study basic mechanisms of microbial pathogenesis and host immunity. ...
The effectively connected income of a foreign corporation or international investor is taxed on a net basis at
graduated rates like those applicable to U.S. corporations, citizens, and residents.
Generally, U.S. source income is ECI if one of two alternative tests -- the business-activities test and the assetuse
test -- is met. The business-activities test looks to whether the activities of the U.S. business are a material
factor in generating the income. The asset-use test looks to whether the income is derived from assets used or
held for use in the conduct of a U.S. business.
Serous or “body cavity fluids” are usually collected with aseptic technique by needle puncture and
aspiration of the body cavity fluid. Methods for obtaining the specimen vary depending upon the
site. Fluids are best collected into a dry container and submitted in the fresh state to the
Adding 3-5 IU heparin/mL to a container prior to obtaining a bloody sample will
usually inhibit clotting and not adversely affect morphology. If delay in transportation to the
laboratory is unavoidable, most fluids may be kept refrigerated (4ºC) up to 72 hours.
In the framework of Black-Scholes-Merton option pricing models, by
employing exotic options instead of plain options or warrants, this paper presents an
equivalent decomposition method for the Callable Convertible Bonds (CCB). Furthermore,
the analytic valuation formulae for CCB are obtained by using the analytic formulae for those
simpler securities decomposed from CCB. This method is validated by comparing with Monte
Carlo simulation. Besides, the effects of call clauses, coupon clauses, soft call condition
clauses and dividend payment are analyzed respectively.
The fourth row of Table 3 indicates that for over half of nongovernmental organizations
at least 85 percent of borrowers are female. At least a quarter of nongovernmental organizations
serve women exclusively. Banks serve many women, but in lower numbers; for slightly less
than half of institutions, men make up the majority of borrowers. Column 4 breaks out the
median only for profitable nongovernmental microfinance organizations, and their data on
women as a share of all borrowers are much closer to that of other nongovernmental
organizations than that of banks.
This case study examines an integrated marketing communications success story:
Subaru’s 14-year unwavering, authentic relationship with the gay and lesbian communities
during which sales have doubled. Subaru reached out to the gay and lesbian consumers in 1995,
beginning with corporate sponsorship of the Rainbow Card, followed by gay and lesbian-specific
advertising campaigns and numerous strategic sponsorships. Subaru’s corporate communication
efforts were and continue to be revolutionary considering U.S.
Following a comprehensive understanding of the luxury construct, all relevant current and potential value sources of the
consumers‘ luxury perception should be integrated into one single model. A customer‘s luxury value perception and the
motives for luxury brand consumption are not simply tied to a set of social aspects of displaying status, success,
distinction and the human desire to impress other people, but also depend on the nature of the financial, functional and
individual utilities of the certain luxury brand.
Mechanical Reproduction’, in which he argued that mechanical reproduction
destroys the aura of the formerly unique work of art and thus, for the first time
in history, ‘emancipates the work of art from its parasitical dependence on rit-
ual’ (Benjamin, 1979: 224) It is precisely in the dissemination of mechanical-
ly reproduced artworks that quantity leads to the quality of a modern society,
thereby gaining a new politically relevant status. In contrast to the ‘pure’ art of
former centuries, it affords modern artworks a social function for the masses....
