An extended range of new sensing applications and solutions have emerged in different fields such
as rural and forest fire detection , monitoring of industrial manufacturing processes ,
transport/logistics , and for personal services in areas such as healthcare and Ambient Assisted
Living (AAL) . These new advanced applications based on a new generation of sensing and
communication capabilities are a consequence of the continuous advances in sensor technologies
and wireless communication protocols that allow for greater autonomy of sensor nodes.
An applied field of biology that involves the use of
living organisms and bioprocesses in engineering,
technology, medicine and other fields requiring
It is the products and exploitation from other
fundamental sciences.Traditional Biotechnology
Traditional biotechnology refers to a number of ancient ways of
using living organisms to make new products or modify
existing ones. In its broadest definition, traditional
biotechnology can be traced back to human's transition from
hunter-gatherer to farmer.
It is very important to make the specific difference between biotechnology as a distinct
science of getting valuable products from molecules, cells, or tissues of viable
organisms, and any other applications of bioprocesses that are based on using the
whole living plants or animals in different fields of human activities such as
bioremediation, environmental protection, organic agriculture, or industrial
exploitation of natural resources.
Of late, the coastal ecosystems are highly degraded
due to high population and industrial growth (Glasby &
Roonwal, 1995; UNEP, 1997). Due to various pollutions
including pesticide poisoning (Sen Gupta et al., 1990),
over exploitation of water resources by power plant
industries and the municipal uses and encroachment for
urban developments force the fishing community to the
brink of disappearance. When those natural resources
are imperilled, so too are the livelihoods of the many
people who live and work there.
The commercial success of independent youth-oriented
pictures such as those of AIP was matched by that of some more edgy
and disturbing independent productions in the same generic territory,
Finally, the shape of the spending profile over the pay period, and the motivation
behind it, are important subjects for study in their own right. Our results add to the debate
on whether the industry in “payday loans” exploits self-control problems, by testing
whether households in fact experience a struggle for self-control between paydays.
The model presents a number of general components in the health promoting school. Furthermore,
emphasis has been placed on including factors explicitly related to the principles contained in the
conference resolution referred to above.
The overall aim of the work in Danish health promoting schools is that pupils are enabled to act in
relation to their own lives and their living conditions.
The objective of medicine is to address people’s unavoidable
needs for emotional and physical healing. The discipline has
evolved over millennia by drawing on the religious beliefs and
social structures of numerous indigenous peoples, by exploit-
ing natural products in their environments, and more recently
by developing and validating therapeutic and preventive
approaches using the scientific method.
Urban design is a diffuse and abstract term. It means different things to
different people. For those not directly involved in its practice or aware of
its effects on their daily lives, it may not mean much, if anything at all. I first
heard the term in architecture school, but I didn’t really think much about
what it might mean until my schoolmate Jonathan Barnett started using it
to describe his aspiration to put together with some of his colleagues a
design capability in the New York City government.
Quang Ninh Province, situated in Northeast coast of Vietnam, has about 250km of shoreline, many estuaries, and tidal flats and over 2000 islands. The diversified nature, natural landscapes and ecosystems grant the province a great potential for tourism and specially seafood products. Peanut-worms (Sipunculus nudus) are exploited and used as popular seafood in international and domestic markets as special food of high nutritional and pharmaceutical value.
Vision plays a fundamental role for living beings by allowing them to interact with the environment in an effective and efficient way. The ultimate goal of Machine Vision is to endow artificial systems with adequate capabilities to cope with not a priori predetermined situations. To this end, we have to take into account the computing constraints of the hosting architectures and the specifications of the tasks to be accomplished, to continuously adapt and optimize the visual processing techniques. Nevertheless, by exploiting the low?cost computational power of off?the?...
The welfare of the donor, and the potential for harm and exploitation within donation
practices, should be a key determining factor when considering the ethical acceptability of any
system for encouraging people to come forward as donors. While proper consent procedures,
underpinned by sufficient information, are clearly essential in order to protect those coming
forward as living donors, consent alone may not be sufficient to justify particular donation
practices if such practices might put other potential donors, or wider communal values, at risk.
Studies have consistently shown that
birthweight decreases steadily with
decreasing social status.
shows this decrease in birthweight
between the most privileged and the
most deprived socio-economic groups
among babies born in 2000 enrolled
in the UK Millenium Cohort Study.
Mothers living in the most privileged
socio-economic group had an average
birthweight 200gm heavier than those
living in the most disadvantages
households (workless households).
Exploit the power of data-centric and data-driven Android applications with this practical tutorial Master the skills to build data-centric Android applications Go beyond just code by challenging yourself to think about practical use-cases with SQLite and others Focus on flushing out high level design concepts, before drilling down into different code examples In Detail We live in an increasingly data-centric and data-driven world. On top of that we live in a very mobile-centric world with the rise of Android smart phones and tablet devices and the surge in demand for the Android platform....
Conversely, modern biological sciences (including even concepts such as molecular ecology) are intimately entwined and dependent on the methods developed through biotechnology and what is commonly thought of as the life sciences industry.
In the search for a new framework, we have come to believe strongly in emerging management principles
based on the “new science” of complexity that exploit an understanding of autonomous human behavior gained
from the study of living systems in nature. Specifically, we have begun to build the notion of complex adaptive
systems (CAS) into our management assumptions and practices.
Complexity scientists have studied the collective behavior of living systems in nature such as the flocking of
birds, schooling of fish, marching of ants and the swarming of bees.
