Even healthy people can be affected by air pollution. Air pollution can affect anyone.
Healthy teenagers, young adults, and strong athletes can suffer negative effects from
high pollution levels, especially when exercising outdoors.

many pollutants. And, the concentration of each pollutant changes during the day. All
of this makes it difficult to separate out the effects of each pollutant.
In addition, how susceptible people are to the effects of air pollutants can vary
This paper is dealing with formulation of photodegradable films based on polyethylenecassava starch blend using benzophenone/antraquinone or Fe(II) compound as photosensitive compound. Benzophenone, antraquinone and Fe(II) compound were synthesized in the laboratory and characterized by IR and NMR spectra. The films were obtained by extrusion-blowing method and showed good mechanical properties. They were exposed outdoor and indoor for photodegradability testing. It showed that after four months outdoor their tensile at break decreased 85% and elongation at break about 90%.
A scalloped birdbath in the center of this
fresco complemented the outdoor water features
in the garden just beyond the living room. Herm
posts (statues in the form of square stone pillars
surmounted by a bust or head) stand on each side
of the birdbath—one with the head of a satyr and
the other with what may be the head of a maenad
or a child. Each herm is also adorned by plaques
with reliefs of sleeping women. Theatrical masks
hang along the top of the fresco.
