Prior to the availability of refrigeration, foods, particularly fish and meat,
were preserved by salting, marinating or pickling. Through a decrease in water
activity, meat and fish were protected against microbial spoilage and other
deteriorative processes. It was the process of treating meat with rock salt that
led to modern curing practices (Cassens 1990). Thus, meat curing, historically
defined as the addition of salt (sodium chloride) to meat, is now referred to as
the intentional addition of nitrite and salt to meat.
Biotherapeutics have become the main drivers for the pipeline of the pharmaceutical
industry, and carry hope for millions of patients for a better life with, or even cure from,
diseases for which there are no existing effective treatments. This group of medicines
includes, but is not limited to, protein and nucleic acid-based therapeutics as well as different
classes of vaccines and gene therapy treatments. Today, there are a few hundred
licensed biotherapeutics produced from genetically engineered cells and over a thousand
are in pre-clinical and clinical studies....
This paper introduces a technology that considerably reduces the time to cure the positive plates of lead–acid batteries. In each of several full-scale trials at automotive and industrial battery manufacturers, the simple replacement of 1 wt.% of leady oxide with ﬁnely-divided tetrabasic lead sulfate (SureCureTM by Hammond Group Inc.) is shown to accelerate signiﬁcantly the conversion of tribasic lead sulfate (3BS) to tetrabasic lead sulfate (4BS) in the curing process while improving crystal structure and reproducibility. ...
This book is dedicated to thermoset resins, an important class of polymer materials.
Unlike thermoplastics, thermoset resins are characterised by a curing reaction,
which converts the low molecular weight liquid resins (easy to process) into solid
three- dimensional network structures. The main advantage of a thermoset over a
thermoplastic is that a wide range of properties can be achieved by simply adjusting
the crosslink density of the thermoset network...
With the exception of admixtures and fly ash, all moulds and materials
are discussed in this chapter. None of the factors listed can be considered
in isolation since variation in one will often affect another. Mix design
for various forms of precast manufacture is dealt with in Chapter 6. The
purpose of this chapter is to acquaint the reader with all the starting
variables. The background picture will then be fully understood before
one proceeds to put these variables into a process, in order to produce a
precast concrete product....
Of course, biomass and food brought this key trade-off
biomass use: the controversial food or fuel. With two primary uses of biomass
appropriate resolution of this balance is essential for biomass acceptable and beneficial
use in the future. Obvious example of biomass for energy is ethanol misuse
produced from corn, a conversion process is relatively inefficient as well as a direct
Collision course with the way corn as food.
To evaluate the main characteristics and performances of alternative financing mechanisms a Multi
Criteria Analysis (MCA) was conducted. The MCA is a decision making tool used to reach consensus
about the characteristics and performances of different policy instruments, or alternatives. In the
MCA each stakeholder participating in the evaluation process enters their judgment (or score), and
contributes to a jointly reached conclusion about a policy instrument or alternative.
In the FORVALUE study, the MCA was conducted for 11 cases of innovative (or alternative) financing
The second approach quantifies the goods and the added value involved, as well as the resource
and product flows, both to understand the above elements and for its intrinsic scientific interest.
To quantify such processes requires development of specific methods to obtain the necessary
To understand the global dimensions of the industrial cluster at Jepara, we compare the economic
and social processes driving the actions of firms in the industrial district with those located
elsewhere in Indonesia and in other countries.
England gained more operational independence and the long-term ináation
target was known, the dynamics of the long-term forward rate was more
stable. Orphanides andWilliams (2003) demonstrate also on a theoretical basis
how the observed overreaction of long-term interest rates to the short-term
interest rate could be explained by the presence of imperfect knowledge and
a perpetual learning process by agents about the structure of the economy
and the policymaker preferences.

It was Bertha Pappenheim — the famous “Anna O.” of Josef Breuer’s first
experiments with psychoanalysis, and a pioneer social worker in her own
right — who first named psychotherapy “the talking cure.” And so it is, as
a legion of well-controlled studies documents. Across a surprising variety
of psychotherapeutic approaches, verbal exchanges between client and
therapist can be powerfully curative — except when they aren’t.
K nowing body chemistry is important
because people’s lives and health are
important.To place this on a personal level, yotrr life and health
are important.The reason I have devoted my life to the healing
arts and teaching people how to live healthy lives is
because I truly feel people-like you-are important. If you
want to have a healthy life, you have to learn how to go about
it. I have invested seventy years of my life learning how to take
care of patients at my “live-in’’ health ranches, following what
is called “the nature cure” phlosophy.
It’s not surprising then that the planning-related books in the
corner of my office disagree heavily with each other. Some
focus on business strategy, others on engineering and
scheduling processes (the traditional focus of project planning),
and a few on understanding and designing for customers. But
more distressing than their disagreements is that these books
fail to acknowledge that other approaches even exist. This is
odd because none of these perspectives—business, technology,
customer—can ever exist without the others.

The photocrosslinking of the diacrylate (HDDA)-short oils alkyde in the presence of different photoinitiators have been studied. The curing process was followed by infrared spectroscopy, insolubilization and hardness measurements. The decay of the photoinitiator during the process was followed by UV spectroscopy. The photocrosslinking of the HDDA-short oil alkyde system was the fastest and the properties of the UV-cured product was the best in the presence of D-1173 photoinitiator.
While discussing traditional health practices and medical knowledge, one could
expect elders to give a list of the best techniques to cure sickness depending on the
various types of health problems or injuries they were facing in the past: how to
deal with boils, infections, fever, eye infections, colds, broken bones, drowning,
and so on. But the Inuit perspective encompasses much more. Along with
techniques to heal cuts and wounds, and to cure sickness...elders discussed
recollections of how to have a strong mind and a resilient body....
Related to testing and acceptance is the concept of cure. If the client
notiﬁ es you that the work is not acceptable, you should have the
opportunity to effect a cure. This means to repair, correct or re-design
any work that does not conform to the project speciﬁ cations in order
to make it acceptable to the client.
If a client has never purchased creative services before, they may not
be aware of how extensive and important their own involvement in the
process will be. You’ll want to point out what is required of them in terms
Many cancer patients are diagnosed at a stage in which the cancer is too far advanced to be cured, and most cancer treatments are effective in only a minority of patients undergoing therapy. Thus, there is tremendous opportunity to improve the outcome for people with cancer by enhancing detection and treatment approaches. Biomarkers will be instrumental in making that transition.
Research is essential for the United States to remain a world leader in the
development of health advances. The beneﬁ ts of research extend beyond healthy
citizens. Research improves our nation’s productivity, increases employment, and
improves the ﬁ nancial well-being of our citizens. More progress must be made,
both in understanding disease processes in order to develop cures and in bringing
these advances to everyone.
They were promised a miracle cure for the deadly diseases destroying their lives. It seemed too good to be
true, but to the desperate and dying it was the only chance for survival. Now they're part of a bizarre secret
experiment that reverses the aging process--an experiment gone out of control. To stop the madness, one
woman must enter a shocking nightmare world, where scientists control your body--and your mind--and
living makes you beg for death
