  • Within the overall transport process, attenuation processes may cause movement of the chemical to differ from that of the bulk flowing groundwater, for example dispersion, sorption and chemical or biological degradation of the chemical. Such attenuation processes potentially act to mitigate the impact of chemicals and are a function of both the specific chemical and geologic domain. Indeed, attenuation may vary significantly between individual chemicals and within different geological settings.

  • building raised beds. Raised beds have soil a few inches or more higher than the surrounding area, which provides extra rooting depth, and helps the soil drain and warm up in the spring. They’re typically 3 to 4 feet wide, with mulched paths in between, so you walk on the paths and don’t compact the soil in planting areas. Raised bed sides can be made with reused lumber, broken concrete or concrete blocks, recycled plastic lum- ber, or any non-toxic material. (Don’t use treated wood.) You can also make raised beds without sides. Dig a few inches of soil out of...

An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regu- lated by the federal government.

  • When one considers the history of gamete/embryo cryobiology, it is difficult to select a specific event and point of origin. Early basic scientific advancements in measurements of temperature and the chemistry of solutions and gases are certainly sentinel events for cryobiology. It has been suggested that original versions of a device to measure temperature were made by Galileo Galilei in the early seventeenth century. The first accurate means of measuring temperature were developed in the early 1700s by the German physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit through application of mercury in glass. ...

  • Is this use of television vital for the community information needs? In R8069, the survey included comment on various sources or means of finding information – about important subjects.
