  • Forensic Engineering Investigation is a compendium of the investigative methodologies used by engineers and scientific investigators to evaluate some of the more common types of failures and catastrophic events. In essence, the book provides analyses and methods for determining how an entity was damaged and when that damage may have legal consequences. The material covers 21 common types of failures, catastrophic events, and losses that forensic engineers routinely assess.

  • In response to a request from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Research Council (NRC) established the Committee on Principal-Investigator-Led Missions in the Space Sciences in the summer of 2004 to conduct a study of Principal-Investigator (PI)-led missions in the space sciences. (Appendix A includes brief biographies of the committee members and staff.

  • In addition, the fact that there have been few studies investigating the efficacy of conversational implicature to enhance Japanese high school students’ communicative competence was another cause for me to start this research. Though some experimental studies have been done (see Bouton,1992; Broersma, 1994; Kubota, 1995; and Taguchi, 2007), the subjects of their research were university students and immigrants. Few people seem to have examined students’ development of communicative ability in Japanese high school.

  • Forensic engineering is the application of engineering principles and methodologies to answer questions of fact. These questions of fact are usually associated with accidents, crimes, catastrophic events, degradation of property, and various types of failures.

  • Dense, erudite and sometimes even esoteric, Bonfand’s book is written for the scholar rather than a more general audience. Nevertheless, one has to acknowledge the risk-taking and even the tour de force aspect of the book in which Bonfand ponders the relation between painting and cinema in a very new way. Finally, this work is very encouraging for further investigations of the phenomenology of film using the groundbreaking concepts of the French new wave in phenomenology.

  • All Americans have a stake in effective response to hate crimes. These crimes demand priority attention because of their special impact. Bias crimes are designed to intimidate the victim and members of the victim’s community, leaving them feeling isolated, vulnerable, and unprotected by the law. Failure to address this unique type of crime could cause an isolated incident to explode into widespread community tension. The damage done by hate crimes, therefore, cannot be measured solely in terms of physical injury or dollars and cents.

  • To address this need, PricewaterhouseCoopers has developed the Hub and Spokes Resource Model ™. The Hub and Spokes Resource Model assumes that certain core internal audit resources and capabilities will remain resident within the company. This “hub” provides internal audit with the leadership, continuity and experience that are unique to your organisation. The “spokes” in the model represent elements of a possible cosourcing relationship.

  • Particle samples are collected on filters that are then weighed. Particle concentrations are reported in terms of micrograms of particles per cubic meter (µg/m3 ) of collected air. Originally, the particle samples were relatively indiscriminate with respect to particle size and often contained very large particles. These large particles contributed a great deal to the weighed particle mass, but might not have been very important with respect to lung health. This is because most of the particles were too large to penetrate through the nasal and head airways to reach the lung.

  • The patient journey from presentation to the general practitioner (GP), referral for investigation, through to diagnosis and specialist referral is a multistep process. The effective management of patients with oesophageal and gastric cancer requires a multidisciplinary approach. The investigation and management of each new patient requires access to a multidisciplinary team consisting of surgeons, gastroenterologists, endoscopists, oncologists, nurses, dietitians, radiologists, pathologists, and anaesthetists.

  • Tobacco smoke is highly addictive and has been linked to 20 percent of all deaths in the United States. It contains many cancer- causing chemicals, and almost one third of all cancer deaths are related to tobacco use. Tobacco smoking has generally been considered to have little or no association with breast cancer risk. Newer studies have challenged this conclusion and suggested a connection between smoking and an increased risk of breast cancer, but more investigation is needed to resolve this issue.

  • One might expect that these regions would divide into two groups, those free of highly-infectious poultry diseases and those that are not free of disease, with trade occurring within each group. However, this is not the case. The major importers of poultry products, China, Japan, and Russia, accept imports from all exporting regions in the model. The two major exporters, the US and Brazil, do not accept imports from each other and also ban imports from China, based on recurrent outbreaks of Newcastle Disease. The EU also bans imports from the US and from China. The...

  • THE DISCOVERY of fatigue occurred in the 1800s when several investigators in Europe observed that bridge and railroad components were cracking when subjected to repeated loading. As the century progressed and the use of metals expanded with the increasing use of machines, more and more failures of components subjected to repeated loads were recorded.

  • While such investigations yield differing effects dependent on the situation, the common observation of a temperature change has been associated with the presence of mechanical energy, which is required to overcome frictional resistance as sliding at the contact interface occurs. The energy, dissipated through conversion into thermal energy, is manifested as a temperature rise. At the microlevel, this increase can be substantial. A localized change in material properties, an enhancement in chemical reactivity, and ultimately, failure of the mechanical system can result.

  • Harrison's Internal Medicine Chapter 19. Fever of Unknown Origin Definition and Classification Fever of unknown origin (FUO) was defined by Petersdorf and Beeson in 1961 as (1) temperatures of 38.3°C (101°F) on several occasions; (2) a duration of fever of 3 weeks; and (3) failure to reach a diagnosis despite 1 week of inpatient investigation. While this classification has stood for more than 30 years, Durack and Street have proposed a new system for classification of FUO: (1) classic FUO; (2) nosocomial FUO; (3) neutropenic FUO; and (4) FUO associated with HIV infection.

  • While various glomerular disorders account for the most cases of end stage renal failure, the etio-pathogenesis of these conditions intrigued many investigators for decades. A clear knowledge of the etiology and pathogenesis is crucial for developing novel strategies to prevent and to treat these disorders. Notwithstanding the continuous emergence of new discoveries, we still have a long way to get any closer to a thorough understanding of the mechanisms of glomerular injury.

  • Sociality in mammals is often viewed as a dichotomy, with sociality contrasted against solitariness. However, variation within these broad categories may have strong effects on individual fitness. For example, reproductive suppression of social subordinates is generally associated with group living, but suppression may also occur in solitary species if the behavioral and physiological processes involved can be modulated by the demographic environment.

  • Duration of Therapy and Treatment Failure Until recently, there was little incentive to establish the most appropriate duration of treatment; patients were instructed to take a 7- or 10-day course of treatment for most common infections. A number of recent investigations have evaluated shorter durations of therapy, especially in patients with communityacquired pneumonia. Table 127-10 lists common bacterial infections for which treatment duration guidelines have been established or for which there is sufficient clinical experience to establish treatment durations.
