This is a dangerous combination. The persistence and mobility of POPs means that they
are literally everywhere in the world, even in the Arctic,Antarctica, and remote Pacific islands.
Their attraction to fatty tissue, known as "bioaccumulation", means that even though a
poison is first dispersed widely and thinly it gradually starts to concentrate as organisms
consume other organisms as they move up the food chain.
Electromyography (EMG) is a technique for evaluating and recording the electrical activity produced by skeletal muscles. EMG may be used clinically for the diagnosis of neuromuscular problems and for assessing biomechanical and motor control deficits and other functional disorders. Furthermore, it can be used as a control signal for interfacing with orthotic and/or prosthetic devices or other rehabilitation assists.
Bank balance sheets are highly leveraged. The average ratio of total
