Upstream and downstream linkages contribute to ME’s innovativeness. However, most of
the technological progress is based on the industry’s own R&D capabilities and its broad
knowledge of process technologies. One of the outstanding examples in this respect has
been the so-called Compact Strip Production (CSP). Developed by a European firm at the
end of the 1980s, this technology enables steel works to invest in a capital and energy
saving process. It has been based upon the integration of steps that have been carried out
separately in former times.

Minimally Invasive Surgery represents the future of many types of medical interventions such
as keyhole neurosurgey or transluminal endoscopic surgery. These procedures involve insertion
of surgical instruments such as needles and endoscopes into human body through small
incision/ body cavity for biopsy and drug delivery.
As a professional sales trainer, I have discovered a very important aspect of adult learning: people love simplicity. The
simpler the better. I wrote this book with that goal in mind; to reveal the simplicity of selling. Selling is simple. Simple is
fun. That is why the KISS principle (Keep It Simple Salespeople) prevails. This book offers an approach that strips away
the perceived complexities of selling and discusses selling in its purest form: a dialogue between two human beings.
The required skills of an effective sales professional have become increasingly sophisticated.
From non-profit performance space to galleries, to
businesses that offer classes, to specialty supply shops,
to the individual artist entrepreneur and contractor,
neighborhood arts activity is an identifiable business
sector. In some communities, artist entrepreneurs play
a similar early entrant role for commercial strips as
they do for artist housing development.
As economists who study business clusters recognize,
geographical proximity and the interactions that
emerge from related activities within a local area are
important even in the age of electronic connectivity.
The culture of striped catfish, Pangasianodon hypophthalmus (Sauvage), or “ca tra” in Vietnamese in
the Mekong Delta of Vietnam, can be considered as a unique aquatic farming system in many ways.
Production is the fastest growth recorded in any aquaculture sector, ever, based on a single species,
superseding the production per unit for any form of primary production. Stripped catfish aquaculture
now need to be improved in many aspects and environmental issues need to be paid more attention to
ensure the sustainable development.
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) were shown to mediate aberrant contractility in hypertension, yet the physiological roles of ROS in vascular smooth muscle contraction have remained elusive. This study aimed to examine whether ROS regulate a1-adrenoceptor-activated contraction by altering myosin phosphatase activities. Methods: Using endothelium-denuded rat tail artery (RTA) strips, effects of anti-oxidants on isometric force, ROS production, phosphorylation of the 20-kDa myosin light chain (MLC20), and myosin phosphatase stimulated by a1-adrenoceptor agonist phenylephrine were examined.
