  • Hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidant that can be injected into a contaminated zone to destroy petroleum contaminants. When injected to groundwater, hydrogen peroxide is unstable, and reacts with organic contaminants and subsurface materials. It decomposes to oxygen and water within hours of its introduction into groundwater generating heat in the process. Peroxide is typically shipped to a remediation site in liquid form at dose concentrations ranging from five percent to 50 percent by weight.

  • Dynamicity of participants: Some P2P systems, such as [10], assume a fixed set of nodes in the system. However, one of the greatest potential strengths of P2P systems is when they eschew reliance on dedicated infrastructure and allow peers to leave the system at will. Even under these conditions, participants typically have broadly varying availability characteristics. Some peers are akin to servers: their membership in the system stays largely static. Others have much more dynamic membership, joining and leaving the system at will.

  • Typically the processes are adapted from wood processing which benefit from the larger mill size (Paper I). However, concerns associated with the local availability of non-wood raw material force pulp mills to remain small and thus lead to the need for processes to be as simple as possible in order to be competitive unless very valuable by-products can also be extracted. The benefits of utilising agro-fibres are their generally lower lignin content compared with woods (Grant 1958, Hurter 1988).

  • These daily movements in the Portuguese long-term interest rates could reflect a risk premium. The EC recommendation clearly signalled to markets that Portuguese public finances were facing difficulties. Therefore, markets might have attributed additional risk to the government debt, demanding a higher interest rate to hold the long-term bonds. At the same time, the risk of private bonds might have decreased relatively to government bonds, since this EC recommendation was not seen as directly damaging this segment of the market.

  • Modern office chair design has solved many of the problems of fitting a wide range of different sized people by providing convenient adjustments. The ranges of adjustments should be checked to ensure that they cater as much as possible for the ethnic mix in the workforce involved. For example, to ensure that all people can obtain good back support, the backrest must be sufficiently adjustable in the fore and aft direction. This changes the effective depth of the seat which should be no greater than the buttock to popliteal length. The backrest height should also be...

  • The Internet’s rapid and profound entry into our lives quite understandably makes people wonder how, both individually and collectively, we have been affected by it. When major shifts in technology use occur, utopian and dystopian views of their impact on society often abound, reflecting their disruptiveness and people’s concerns. Given its complex uses, the Internet, both as a technology and as an environment, has had both beneficial and deleterious effects. Above all, though, it has had transformative effects.

  • The concept of aesthetic labour and sprezzatura may offer a new way of seeing employees. The concept needs to be tested along two routes – the employee and the organisation. The focus is firstly inwards to the recruitment, selection and training of staff and secondly outwards, to the public faces the organisation presents to the specific business environment. In the first of the two roles at least, the Human Resource manager can have a major influence and here ethical concerns may be considered as operational embedded practical aspects to daily work.

Indeed, the Arab Social Media Report regional survey findings show that many of the responses of male and female social media users were similar, indicating that social media may be a “gender equalizer.” The existing gap in Arab women’s usage of social media compared to men and to the global average is primarily a result of perceived societal and cultural constraints Arab women continue to face in the region.
