Breast cancer remains a leading cause of cancer death among women
in the United States. More than 180,000 new cases of invasive breast
cancer are diagnosed each year, and more than 40,000 women die of the
disease. Recent years, however, have seen improvements in survival
attributed to better treatment and earlier diagnosis. Research efforts have
been directed toward better treatment, preventive strategies, and early

AD HOC NETWORKS: Technologies and Protocols is a concise in-depth treatment of various constituent components of ad hoc network protocols. It reviews issues related to medium access control, scalable routing, group communications, use of directional/smart antennas, network security, and power management among other topics. The authors examine various technologies that may aid ad hoc networking including the presence of an ability to tune transmission power levels or the deployment of sophisticated smart antennae. ...
Traditional Supply Chain Management (SCM) aims at movement of goods and services from one end of
this chain to the other through different stages so as to improve the efficiency, productivity and profitability
of the entire process. As SCM spans across the economic functions of the entire value chain of
a product or service, it is vital for a company to join in, form, or coordinate its business related supply
chains, forming various kinds of business relationships.
The generation of wastes as a result of human activities has been continuously speeding up since the beginning of the industrial revolution. Hence, both optimized waste water treatment technologies and modern tools to assess the effects of pollution sources are necessary to prevent the contamination of aquatic ecosystems The book offers an interdisciplinary collection of topics concerning waste water treatment technologies, water quality monitoring and evaluation of waste water impact on natural environments.
The book “Advances in Diverse Industrial Applications of Nanocomposites” was well
thought about knitt ing several broad disciplines of nanocomposites in mind. A glance
through the pages of science and engineering literature shows that the use of nanocomposites
for emerging technologies represents one of the most active areas of research
and development throughout the fi elds of chemistry, physics, life sciences, and related
The use of acoustic energy in food or bioprocessing operations is a relatively new
endeavor if compared with other sources of energy, such as mechanical or thermal,
which have been utilized for centuries in various applications. There are two
important factors that make the current ultrasound-assisted processes possible. One
is related with the development in ultrasound generation technology and the other
one is the better understanding of interactions between acoustic energy and liquid
media, enabling the development of important guidelines for ultrasound-based
Public relations will continue to transform, and the changes you see
are monumental. For better or for worse, a career in PR means handling
communications in the public spotlight because of the increasing use of
social media. In the wake of democratized content and businesses satisfying
the needs of the digitally connected consumer, PR had to evolve with
a new approach. This approach required a shift in thinking, from strategy
and planning all the way through to implementation and measurement.
he goal is to provide tools for leaders to improve
both the environmental performance and overall competiveness by reducing
materials, energy and water utilization. Section 5 are papers related to sustainable
environment: all aspects of ecosystem for sustainable development, ecological
assessment and sustainability for the environment.
Over the past 20 years, there has been a substantial increase in research and development
in the area of biofuels. Many researchers around the world have dealt with environmental,
economic, policy and technical subjects aspects relating to these studies. In
a way, this book aspires to be a comprehensive summary of current biofuels issues and
thereby contribute to the understanding of this important topic.
This is an easy-to-use course for students specializing in computing and information technology. All four language skills are consolidated and developed through a variety of authentic, and visual materials related to the topic. The Teacher's Guide provides teaching objectives, notes, and an answer key, tapescript and photocopiable progress tests. This book is divided into 2 parts, the following is part 1, inviting you to refer.
All organizations, whether for profit, not for profit, or government, face issues of information technology management. While the concerns involved may differ from organization to organization, the principles of good information technology management remain the same.
Using a compilation of articles on various topics relating to technology management, Handbook of Technology Management in Public Administration addresses the management, implementation, and integration of technology across a wide variety of disciplines.
Oracle object technology is a layer of abstraction built on Oracle relational
technology. New object types can be created from any built-in database types and
any previously created object types, object references, and collection types.
Metadata for user-defined types is stored in a schema that is available to SQL,
PL/SQL, Java, and other published interfaces
Despite massive efforts in drug discovery fueled by combinatory
chemistry, recombinant DNA technology, and highthroughput
screening, surprisingly few molecules make it
through the drug development process. While the reasons
are debated, it is certain that many new chemical entities
(NCEs) suffer from recurring problems that hinder development—
low water solubility, instability, or inadequate
pharmacokinetics. An estimated 43% of NCEs are poorly
This recent technology separates the corn kernel into its components
without the soaking step. Depending on the process—several companies
currently offer similar technologies—the feedstock may be misted with
water before being separated into bran, germ, and the high-starch
endosperm portion of the kernel (BioFuels Journal, 2005d,e).
The advantages of dry fractionation over processes that require a soak step
are threefold: lower costs because less energy is required for drying the feed
coproduct, lower emissions, and greater coproduct output because the mash
is more highly concentrated.
