The purpose of this book is to provide the advances in plant in vitro culture as related to perennial fruit crops and medicinal plants. Basic principles and new techniques, now available, are presented in detail. The book will be of use to researchers, teachers in biotechnology and for individuals interested to the commercial application of plant in vitro culture.

In this book we trace the development of Media and Cultural Theory from the Enlightenment through to the present day. Along the way we gesture towards a range of contemporary media texts including film, television, journalism, pop music, the Internet. And, indeed, what first attracted us to BookBoon was the opportunity to create a text that we could update and keep fresh; the media industry moves quickly and it is important to be able to revise interpretations in light of this. With this in mind we decided to make the scope of material covered fairly broad, ranging from Edmund Burke’s...

Ted Striphas argues that, although the production and propagation of books have undoubtedly entered a new phase, printed works are still very much a part of our everyday lives. With examples from trade journals, news media, films, advertisements, and a host of other commercial and scholarly materials, Striphas tells a story of modern publishing that proves, even in a rapidly digitizing world, books are anything but dead.
While the purview of digital forensics was once specialized to fields of law enforcement, computer security, and national defense, the increasing ubiquity of computers and electronic devices means that digital forensics is now used in a wide variety of cases and circumstances. Most records today are born digital, and libraries and other collecting institutions increasingly receive computer storage media as part
British people watch a lot of television, but this does not mean that they have given up reading. The British are the third largest consumers of newspapers in the world (after the Japanese and the Swedes). Each day about 80 % of all households buy one of the main national newspapers. Media of Britain consist of several different types of communications media: television, radio, newspapers, magazines, and Internet - based Web sites. In this assignment, I will present some contents about press, the BBC, television of Britain.
Ebook Culture and customs of Australia it could be argued, then, that australia is a country whose profile is changing almost constantly. This book attempts, as objectively as is possible, to document these changes, as well as to look back at the country’s past, and place them in some kind of historical context. It is written primarily for an audience of non australians, but i hope it will be useful to the citizens of my own country as well.
The success of clinical IVF was initially compromised by sub-optimal culture conditions, resulting in impaired embryo development (1–6) and a subsequent loss of viability. However, research during the past 10–15 years has resulted in the development of more physiological and effective culture media capable of maintaining the viability of the developing embryo (7–10). This in turn has resulted in an increase in implantation rates and a decrease in the number of pregnancies lost. Furthermore, more suitable culture conditions produce embryos more able to survive cryopreservation (11). ...
We investigated the effects on ginseng cell and ginsenoside production when macro element concentrations were manipulated in the culture media. Biomass growth was greatest in the medium supplemented with 0.5 strength NH4NO3, whereas ginsenoside accumulation was highest (6.5 mg/g DW). At levels of 1.0 strength KNO3, cell growth was maximum, but 2.0 strength of KNO3 led to the greatest ginsenoside content (6.1 mg/g DW).
The contributors to this third volume of How Canadians Communicate focus on the question "What does Canadian popular culture have to say about the construciton and negotiation of Canadian national identity?" They show how popular culture is negotiated across the different terrains where a sense of national identity is built, by producers and audiences, government and industry, history and geography, ethnicities, and citizenships. Canada does indeed have a popular culture distinct from other nations, and these contributors are out to prove it.
Three decades of societal and cultural alignment of new media have yielded a host of innovations, trials, and problems, accompanied by versatile popular and academic discourse. New Media Studies crystallized internationally into an established academic discipline, and this begs the question: where do we stand now?
Perhaps the most important finding of this research is the shared view of social media as a tool for women’s empowerment.
The majority of respondents felt that social media had the potential to be an empowering and engaging tool for women,
whether in social, economic, legal, political or civic arenas. These perceptions contrast with the reality of gender inequalities
that persist in the Arab region when it comes to these domains. In that sense, social media can potentially be a “change
agent” towards women’s empowerment in Arab societies.
The instance of the electric light may prove illuminating in this
connection. The electric light is pure information. It is a medium
without a message, as it were, unless it is used to spell out some
verbal ad or name. This fact, characteristic of all media, means that
the "content" of any medium is always another medium. The content
of writing is speech, just as the written word is the content of print,
and print is the content of the telegraph. If it is asked, "What is the
content of speech?," it is necessary to say, "It is an...
The most dramatic and high-profile of world spectacles have been the
modern Olympic Games and the men’s football World Cup, events owned
by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and FIFA (the governing
body of world football). Such sporting encounters and contests have
provided a source of and focus for the staging of spectacle and, in an era
of international mass communications, the media event. The growth of
FIFA and the IOC, and of their major events, has provided a platform for
the articulation and expression of national pride and prestige.
Bacterial strains and culture conditions: Grape pomace is a natural product rich in dietary fiber and polyphenols. A major part of dietary polyphenols is not absorbed in the small intestine and can interact with colonic microbiota. The influence of grape
polyphenols on Lactobacillus acidophilus CECT 903 growth was investigated through agar diffusion assays and cultures in liquid media. Grape phenolic extracts and some standards of phenolic compounds (caffeic acid, gallic acid, tannic acid, catechin, epicatechin, and quercetin) were assayed.

Word by word helps students relate the vocabulary and themes they study to their own lives. Discussion questions in every unit encourage students to share expe-riences, thoughts, opinions, and information about themselves, their cultures, and their countries. In this way, students get to know each other "word by word"
