Evidence grows daily of the rapid changes in climate due to human activities and
their impact on plants and animals. Plant function is inextricably linked to climate
and atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration. On the shortest and smallest scales
the climate affects the plant’s immediate environment and thus directly inﬂuences
physiological processes. On longer and larger time and space scales climate inﬂu-
ences species distribution and community composition and determines what crops
can be viably produced in managed agricultural, horticultural and forestry ecosys-
The development of concept in structural morphology lets description the location of nickel nanoclusters in conductive organic polymers, which may be a new kind of structure in conductive organic polymer composites family. As a new route, such the development was supported by electrochemical two-pot process, on which polianiline containing nanoclusters of nickel incorporated in layer by layer were prepared, in H2SO4 0.1 M solutions. The presence of nickel nanoclusters in polymer matrix and the changes in morphology were confirmed by SEM/EDS
In conjunction with this instrumental variables approach, we include in-
dividual fixed effects to control for observable and unobservable individual
characteristics that are fixed over time, such as gender, race, or average risk
tolerance over the sample period. Because our sample is restricted to “natives”
(whom we also refer to as “nonmovers”), the individual fixed effects also con-
trol for time-invariant community characteristics such as the average level of
financial sophistication of a community over the sample period.
If we multiply the price-earnings estimate of Sloan (1936), which is equal to 17.5, by
1929 total NIPA earnings, we get an estimate for the market value of all corporations in late
August/early September of 1929 of 1.54 times GNP (= 30.8/1.76 × 8.8).
We can use the same procedure with companies in the S&P indices. In Table 2, we
provide a list of the 50 companies in the S&P industrial index, the 20 companies in the S&P
index of railroads and the 20 companies in the S&P index of public utilities. The 90 are the
stocks in their composite index. Along with names, we report...
The biological changes underlying the transition process from gingival health to early
inflammatory changes involve local increase in vascular permeability, edema and the
recruitment and activation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) (Delima and Van
Dyke 2003). Acquired immune response becomes involved once antigen-presenting cells
interact with immunocompetent cells, such as T and B lymphocytes, leading to the
expansion of antibody-secreting plasma cells and the development of the chronic lesion
(Gemmell and Seymour 2004).
Histological assessment showed that independently of the etiological factor involved,
changes of the mucosa refer both to the gingival epithelium and the lamina propria (Banita
et al., 2008, 2011). There is now general agreement that all gingival overgrowth lesions
contain fibrotic or expanded connective tissue with various levels of inflammation and an
enlarged gingival epithelium. As soon as plaque accumulates adjacent to the gingival
margin, inflammatory cells infiltrate in the subjacent connective tissue and initiate its
Gingivitis and periodontitis are the two main periodontal diseases and may be present
concurrently. Gingivitis is a form of periodontal disease in which gingival tissues are
inflamed but their destruction is mild and reversible while periodontitis is a chronic
inflammatory response to the subgingival bacteria with irreversible changes (Armitage,
1999). Periodontium destruction is characterized by loss of connective tissue attachment and
bone around the teeth in conjunction with the formation of periodontal pockets due to
apical migration of the junctional epithelium (Champagne et al.
Công nghệ nano đã được phát triển rộng khắp trong thập kỷ qua và có thể chế tạo ra nhiều vật liệu mới có phạm vi ứng dụng tiềm năng chẳng hạn như các ống nano các bon. Ống nano các bon bao gồm các phân tử các bon hình trụ có đường kính vài nano mét - 1 nano mét bằng 1 phần triệu của 1 mm.
Nature creates the best ingredients and combining them is a mixture
materials. So, get inspiration for new designs of their intended use.
We make new construction, the new artificial materials and evaluate them
before use. Composites are formed from components with high-tech materials
potential. This potential is wide is wide variation of materials and structures
construction when new updates are invented every day.
Composite applications aid businesses by stitching together various componented
business capabilities. In the current enterprise scenario, empowering business
users to react quickly to the rapidly changing business environment is the top most
priority. With the advent of composite applications the 'reuse' paradigm has moved
from the technical aspect to the business aspect. You no longer re-use a service
but re-use a business process. Now, enterprises can define their own behaviors
optimized for their businesses through metadata and flows.

Genetically modified foods and food products derived from genetically engineered
organisms are among a number of biotechnological developments intended
to improve shelf life, nutritional content, flavor, color, and texture, as well as
agronomic and processing characteristics. Although in popular parlance the term
genetically modified often is used interchangeably with genetically engineered,
in this report genetic modification refers to a range of methods used to alter the
genetic composition of a plant or animal, including traditional hybridization and
Beer has been a popular beverage for thousands of years and brewing is
often described as the oldest biotechnological process. Over the years the
brewmaster’s art has been supplemented by vast increases in our knowledge
of the chemistry and biochemistry both of the ingredients and of the
changes taking place to those ingredients during brewing. Together these
contribute to give the products we recognise today - a wide range of
different but consistently high quality beer types.
Nhờ vào sự ưu đãi của thiên nhiên, Đồng Bằng Sông Cửu Long (ĐBSCL) với tổng diện tích mặt nước 954.350 ha, chiếm gần 1/4 diện tích của ĐBSCL, trong đó diện tích mặt nước ngọt chiếm tới 641.350 ha với hệ thống sông ngòi chằng chịt thuộc hai nhánh sông Tiền và sông Hậu, là điều kiện thuận lợi cho nghề nuôi thủy sản nước ngọt phát triển mạnh mẽ.
From April 2008 to April 2011, with the support of
grants from the Ford Foundation and the United
Nations Foundation (UNF) /United Nations Fund for
International Partnerships (UNFIP), WHO and UNFPA
developed and delivered a training programme
for their staff entitled “Strengthening capacity of
UNFPA and WHO to advocate for the integration of
sexual and reproductive health issues into national
development planning processes”.
The late Neogene (the period between − 14 and − 2.4 Ma) is one of the most
interesting phases in understand the present conWguration of terrestrial
ecosystems. It was during this time that the change took place from the
middle Miocene dominant subtropical forests that stretched across southern
Europe and western Asia to a more open but still wooded biotope that
now prevails in warm–temperate areas. This change in vegetation, which
strongly aVected the composition of mammalian faunas, seems to be linked
to the rapid spread of grasses around 8–10 Ma ago....
Hollywood submitted to the rigorous oversight of the PCA because the alternatives to
“censorship at the source” were far worse. After all, censorship had been a fact of
creative and commercial life for motion picture producers from the very birth of the
medium, when even the modest osculations of the middle-aged lovebirds in Thomas
Edison’s The Kiss (1896) scandalized cadres of (literally) Victorian ministers, matrons,
and other variants of a sour-faced species known as the “bluenose.
In a world where the population is expected
to rise to 10 billion by the turn of the century,
accelerating urbanisation and the increasing
the demand for food and energy; taking action
to secure sufficient water of acceptable quality
for humans and nature is as urgent as ever.
Climate change is projected to aggravate water
stress in many regions, especially where water
is already scarce and where the demand for
water is growing rapidly. Increased frequency
of floods is also projected.
The broad aim of this research is to strengthen the link between the social and environmental
sciences, and to foster a change in observed practices by stimulating a dialogue among those
involved in the industry, thereby contributing to sustainable development of the local economy.
Our scientific aim is to combine a systematic study of the dynamics of the firms involved in the
Jepara industrial complex with a quantitative analysis of flows among them, and between them
and markets elsewhere. In this report, we summarise the main features of this complex.
In support of the government's efforts and policies, the World Bank has prepared this
Country Gender Assessment to identify critical areas in which gender-responsive actions
are likely to enhance growth, poverty reduction and human well-being. The extent of
gender discrimination in Afghanistan is pervasive, and the present report focuses on a few
key sectors deemed particularly important for both short and long-term reconstruction.
Gender gaps in Afghanistan are widespread in health, in education, in economic
opportunities and in power and political voice.
