The Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) was established in 1997 by the National Research Council
(NRC). It provides a science-oriented, apolitical forum for leaders in the chemical sciences to discuss
chemically related issues affecting government, industry, and universities. Organized by the NRC’s
Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology, the CSR aims to strengthen the chemical sciences by
fostering communication among the people and organizations—spanning industry, government, universities,
and professional associations—involved with the chemical enterprise.
Recent years have brought minority-owned businesses in the United States unprecedented
opportunities—as well as new and significant risks. Civil rights activists have long argued that one
of the principal reasons why Blacks, Hispanics, and other minority groups have difficulty
establishing themselves in business is that they lack access to the sizable orders and subcontracts
that are generated by large companies.
The information was simply copied and output in PDF and CHM formats for the FireBoard
Minor formatting changes were made, but the content is virtually identical.
Note: This is not new FireBoard official documentation.
This is just a small step to help the people who are new to FireBoard and Joomlaboard during the
transitional development period.
Some documentation is better than no documentation.
Having PDF and CHM is better than just online documentation.
It is my understanding that the FireBoard Documentation Team will produce documentation when
FireBoard is stable.
It is important to note that the problem is not just a lack of proficiency among American students; there is also a lack of interest in STEM fields among many students. Recent evidence suggests that many of the most proficient students, including minority students and women, have been gravitating away from science and engineering toward other professions. Even as the United States focuses on low-performing students, we must devote considerable attention and resources to all of our most high-achieving students
from across all groups....
Minor structural proteins of mouse polyomavirus (MPyV) are essential for
virus infection. To study their properties and possible contributions to cell
death induction, fusion variants of these proteins, created by linking
enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) to their C- or N-termini, were
prepared and tested in the absence of other MPyV gene products, namely the
tumor antigens and the major capsid protein, VP1.
Chapter 42 - Assisting with minor surgery. Minor surgical procedures are frequently performed in ambulatory care settings and office practices. As a medical assistant, you must be knowledgeable of the types of procedures performed where you are employed. You need to know how to prepare the patient for surgery, assist the practitioner during surgery, and care for the patient after surgery.
The aspirator should be aware of the pertinent history and clinical information, significant
radiological studies and the clinical question that FNAB may answer. The procedure as well as the
minor complications of bruising and bleeding should be explained to the patient. Site-specific
complications for deep needle aspiration biopsy should be described to the patient if image guided
FNAB is performed. Informed consent should be obtained from the patient, guardian or legal
Collaboration with the Office of Minority Affairs helped reach many of the African American
gatekeeper audiences. This collaboration also helped to identify African American grandmothers
as the appropriate source for the intervention. The grandmothers who participated
in formative research developed the chitterlings cleaning method for their peers. Having the
grandmothers (as messengers) model how to pre-boil chitterlings was thought to make the
new preparation method easier to accept within the community.
When an investor controls an investee, consolidation is required. The parent investor must
prepare consolidated statements, to enable investors (and others) to see the assets, liabili-
ties, revenues, and expenses of the entire economic entity, consisting of the parent and all
of its subsidiaries.
When consolidated statements are prepared, the investment account relating to a con-
trolled subsidiary disappears entirely from the balance sheet. Instead, the subsidiary’s assets
and liabilities are added to those of the parent and reported together as a single economic
