  • Freshwater sources and oceans have an amazing natural ability to break down some waste materials, but not in the quantities discarded by today' s society. The overload that results eventually puts the ecosystem out of balance. Sometimes nature itself can create these imbalances. But most often our waterways are being polluted by municipal, agricultural and industrial wastes, including many toxic synthetic chemicals which cannot be broken down at all by natural processes.

  • Hydrogen peroxide is particularly effective when it reacts with ferrous iron (Fe2+ ) to produce Fenton's Reagent. Ferrous iron may be naturally present in the subsurface soils and/or groundwater, or it can be added as a catalyst solution together with the hydrogen peroxide to produce this aggressive chemical reaction. Hydrogen peroxide in the presence of ferrous iron (Fe2+ ) reacts to form hydroxyl radicals (OH•), ferric iron (Fe3+ ), and hydroxyl ions (OH- ). The hydroxyl ions are very powerful oxidizers, and react particularly with organic compounds.

  • This study investigated the chemical, physical, and mechanical properties of the bamboo species Phyllostachys pubescens and its utilization potential to manufacture medium density fiberboard (MDF). The result showed holocellulose and alpha-cellulose content increased from the base to the top portion. There was no significant variation in Klason lignin content or ash content from the base to the top portion of the bamboo. The outer layer had the highest holocellulose, alpha cellulose, and Klason lignin contents and the lowest extractive and ash contents.

  • This is a frightening development. There are traces within you – or, depending on your circumstances and exposures, more than traces – of several hundred man-made chemicals. Many are harmless (or at least are so far thought to be). Others, however, may cause cancer and damage the nervous systems, reproductive systems, immune systems, or livers of animals. Mounting scientific evidence is confirming long-term suspicions that they do the same to human beings.

  • Under the SRA and cuts specified in the 2008 farm bill, the reimbursement rate for A&O expenses averaged 18% of total premiums in 2009. 16 This means that for every $100 in premiums collected, the companies receive a reimbursement of $18 from the federal government. The reimbursement rate varies by insurance product, depending on whether it is for a yield-based or a revenue insurance product. The SRA places a maximum for A&O reimbursements at $1.3 billion per year (adjusted annually for inflation) and a minimum at $1.1 billion.

  • Those alarmed at current health care costs and nostalgic for those of times gone by generally fail to appreciate that policy makers in the 1920s considered health care too costly and were concerned that the majority of American households lacked access to it. As late as 1910, “the cost of health care treatment was considered a minor problem compared to the loss of wages due to sickness for most workers.” 1 In the early 1900s, patients either lived or died.

  • As in previous annual Outlooks, we established a set of possible scenarios for the coming year. The majority of this report is built around the expectations established in the Base Case, as shown in exhibit 1. The alternative cases, Rebound and Recession, do not set the outer limits of possible results but rather acknowledge that there is a real probability that the market will follow a different path. Each scenario case represents a set of expectations which work in concert.

  • The magnitude of this relationship has important policy implications. If there is a positive effect of mother’s education as knowledge on children’s health, certain type of policies concerning the diffusion of specific information at community levels can be called for. For example, one important channel through which mother’s education as knowledge can affect child’s health at a community level is through the usage of health facilities which can serve as a complement or even as a substitute for the mother’s education.

  • Human cloning has been one of the most emotive and divisive issues to face UN negotiators and the international community in recent years. This report examines how, that despite a widespread consensus amongst nations that it is desirable to ban reproductive cloning, efforts to negotiate an international convention ground to a halt due to fundamental divisions regarding so-called research or therapeutic cloning. Firm positions on both sides of the debate led to the compromise position of a non-binding UN Declaration on Cloning, (A/RES/59/280).

  • In the future, the domestic voluntary carbon offset market may be largely superseded by a mandatory U.S. trading program for greenhouse gas emissions. Even if it is, there may be grounds for government oversight of the voluntary market today. Oversight may be desirable, for example, to protect consumers and the public interest, to allow learning for regulators, and to provide greater certainty for investors.

  • While existing information resources such as the National Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE, www.dsireusa.org) have documented available incentive programs, the effectiveness of such programs is not well understood. Understanding the impact of current financial incentives on the deployment of renewables—and the factors that influence their effectiveness—is critical to a variety of stakeholders, particularly for states considering new incentives or interested in improving or discarding existing ones.

  • Taking your car to shows and car corrals also helps to get it in front of potential buyers. Most car shows don’t allow cars for sale on the show field, so you’ll want to rent a space at the car corral and put a For Sale sign on it. With a field full of potential buyers, and most likely a bunch interested in your specific marque, a car show is a perfect venue to sell a car. Interacting with potential purchasers from the first moment can be an effective sales tool and result in a quick sale. Costs for car...

  • The 20 learning weeks are organized in distinct modules that each focus on a specific aspect and / or level of Business Engineering or underlying disciplines, respectively. Initially, the entire program was developed independently from other Executive MBA programs and comprised one four-week and 14 one-week modules. Since selected modules of the Executive MBA in Business Engineering are identical with modules of other Executive MBA programs, a program structure comprising ‘general’ and ‘spe- cific’ modules was adopted.

  • Television has attracted young viewers since broadcasting be- gan in the 1940s. Concerns about its effects on the cognitive devel- opment of young children emerged almost immediately and have been fueled by academic research showing a negative association between early-childhood television viewing and later academic achievement. 1 These findings have contributed to a belief among the vast majority of pediatricians that television has “negative effects on brain development” of children below age five (Gentile et al. 2004).

  • Back in seventh grade I was introduced to the Spectronic 20, or “Spec 20” for short. For those readers that are unfamiliar, it is essentially a tan breadbox with two dials, an analog meter, a dial to determine the wavelength transmitted, and a chamber for introducing a sample in a test tube. The device was originally made by Bausch & Lomb back in 1954, and even modern iterations reflect the basic, industrial, sturdy simplicity of the original model. Back in 1980 we were given the charge to determine which wavelengths chlorophyll absorbed best.

  • Women spend more of their time doing unpaid work than men, including household chores, childcare, care of elderly and sick family members, and voluntary work. Comparing data collected in 14 countries through national time use surveys conducted in the period 1999 to 2004, women aged 25 to 44 spent almost triple the time men did on childcare per day (60 vs. 22 minutes). Women 15-24 also spent 60 minutes more per day preparing food, washing dishes, and cleaning the house and women 25-44 spent an average of 162 minutes more per day these tasks. The difference is particularly pronounced in...
