  • Akcros stabilizer/activators have been formulated to provide controlled, uniform gas evolution for the production of PVC foams utilizing azodicarbonamide as the blowing agent. The ABC series of blowing agent catalysts are primary materials and act as both heat stabilizers and gas generation activators. No secondary stabilizer is normally required. Thus, with the availability of such blowing agent catalysts, the use range of azodicarbonamide is extended to a significant degree.

  • An option of longstanding interest is prevention—interventions that prevent or delay the occurrence of the very diseases that drive these costs. There are three kinds of prevention. Primary prevention can be accomplished by modifying unhealthy behaviors (e.g., smoking, physical inactivity), which cause many diseases and account for 38% of all deaths in the United States, 6 administering immunizations to prevent infectious diseases, and reducing exposure to harmful environmental factors.

  • Notwithstanding the fact that the policy rate is near its zero lower bound, the Federal Reserve retains a number of tools and strategies for providing additional stimulus. I will focus here on three that have been part of recent staff analyses and discussion at FOMC meetings: (1) conducting additional purchases of longer-term securities, (2) modifying the Committee’s communication, and (3) reducing the interest paid on excess reserves. I will also comment on a fourth strategy, proposed by several economists--namely, that the FOMC increase its inflation goals. ...

  • The primary purpose of this study is to measure the level of disproportionate impact between credit scores and race/ethnicity, and credit scores and socioeconomic status. Disproportionate impact is defined as the bivariate relationship between credit scores and the independent variable of interest, such as race/ethnicity or income. That is, for purposes of measuring the level of disproportionate impact, no attempt is made to control for possible confounding variables, or factors that might explain a disproportionate impact should one be identified.

  • Despite expectations born a decade ago, there are only a few successes in stratified medicine up to now and its implementation proves to be challenging in many aspects. Numerous factors are considered in making decisions. Indeed the pharmaceutical sector becomes increasingly aware of the potential benefits of stratified medicine but it seems inhibited by uncertainties.

  • In the mid-1990s plant biotechnology burst onto the scene in world agriculture, beginning a second ‘green revolution’ and precipitating one of the great public debates of our time. Approximately a decade later, this book describes the impact of genetically modified (GM) crops on world agriculture, recent advances in the technology and the areas of research from which the next generation of GM crops is likely to emerge, as well as addresses the issues of safety and regulation that have dogged the technology, particularly in Europe.

  • Early feeding may modify the risk of both type 1 (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) later in life. The information generated so far is, however, controversial. When evaluating studies on the impact of early feeding on risk of later diabetes, the data have to be assessed critically and possible confounding factors have to be considered. The study design may induce biases and there are considerable differences in early feeding practices across various countries and cultures. Accordingly it may not be possible to generalise observations based on one population.

  • We model the impact of bank mergers on loan competition, reserve holdings, and aggregate liquidity. A merger changes the distribution of liquidity shocks and creates an internal money market, leading to financial cost efficiencies and more precise estimates of liquidity needs. The merged banks may increase their reserve holdings through an internalization effect or decrease them because of a diversification effect. The merger also affects loan market competition, which in turn modifies the distribution of bank sizes and aggregate liquidity needs.

  • This paper will show the results of the first experiments to get nano-clay clay composite materials based on modified polystyrene resin by melt - mix method. The intercalated nanocomposite structures are characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques. Polystyrene nano-composites with 2% nanoclay by weight exhibit an increases about 10% in impact resistance and they also lower the water absortion (nearly 60% compared with polystyrene resin) without any significant loss of tensile strength, flexural strength and flexural modulus.

  • Polymer blends containing nylon-6 and polypropylene (PP) were prepared by using a single screw extruder. Three different types of maleic anhydride modified PP (PPMA06, PPMA1and PPMA05) were used as compabilizers to examine their effects. The properties included tensile strength, Izod impact strength, torque rheometry and extent of water absorption of the resulting blends were measured and the morphology was characterized by using scanning electron microscope (SEM). The crystallization behavior of blends was analyzed by monitoring differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), X-ray diffraction.

  • Previous World Health Organization studies have examined the aggregate disease burden attributed to key environmental risks globally and regionally, quantifying the amount of death and disease caused by factors such as unsafe drinking-water and sanitation, and indoor and outdoor air pollution. Building from that experience, this present study examines how specific diseases and injuries are impacted by environmental risks, and which regions and populations are most vulnerable to environmentally-mediated diseases and injuries.

  • By focusing on the disease endpoint, and how various kinds of diseases are impacted by environmental influences, the analysis forges new ground in an understanding of interactions between environment and health. The estimates, in effect, reflect how much death, illness and disability could realistically be avoided every year as a result of reduced human exposures to environmental hazards. Specifically considered here are "modifiable" environmental factors realistically amenable to change using available technologies, policies, and preventive and public health measures.
