  • At the open burning sites, some metals were present at concentrations over one hundred times typical background levels for soils, including lead, a highly toxic metal. High levels of other toxic metals, including cadmium and antimony, were also present. Numerous classes of organic chemicals were also present in one or more of the samples, including many halogenated (chlorinated or brominated) chemicals. Many of the compounds identified are intentionally used in electronic devices.

  • The ScrumMaster is one of the most important elements of Scrum success. The ScrumMaster does whatever is in their power to help the team be successful. The ScrumMaster is not the manager of the team; instead, the ScrumMaster serves the team, protects the team from outside interference, and guides the team’s use of Scrum. The ScrumMaster makes sure everyone on the team (as well as those in management) understands and follows the practices of Scrum, and they help lead the organization through the often difficult change required to achieve success with Agile methods.

  • It has been demonstrated that most heavy metals that are in the fuels or raw materials used in cement kilns are effectively incorporated into the clinker, or contained by standard emissions control devices (WBCSD 2002; European Commission (EC) 2004; Vallet January 26, 2007). A study using the EPA’s toxicity characteristic leaching procedure to test the mobility of heavy metals in clinker when exposed to acidic conditions found that only cadmium (Cd) could be detected in the environment, and at levels below regulatory standards (5 ppm) (Shih 2005).

  • Some of the POPs targeted by the Stockholm Convention are already virtually obsolete. Their toxic effects became obvious early on and they have been banned or severely restricted in many countries for years or even decades. Replacement chemicals and techniques are in place. The remaining challenge is to find any leftover stocks and prevent them from being used. Some developing countries may need financial support to dispose of these stocks and replace them with chemicals whose benefits outweigh their risks....

  • Privacy plans, or a comprehensive set of policies and procedures to manage privacy protection, have been developed in 51.1 percent of the organizations that participated in the 13th annual Information Systems and E-Business Spending study conducted in 2002 by Computer Economics. This is a considerable increase from 2001, when only 33.3 percent of the respondents had developed their privacy plans. Meanwhile, 23.4 percent of organizations have not started developing their privacy plans—almost the exact percentage that had not started in 2001.

  • Vascular dysfunction may also reduce oxygen delivery to gingival tissue. Pocket oxygen tension was reported to be significantly lower in smokers than non-smokers providing support for the negative effects of smoking on vascular system (Hanioka et al. 2000). Evidence from both human and experimental studies suggests that smoking has a long-term chronic effect, and its effect is not simply a vasoconstriction.

  • A compound consisting of an alkyl group and the functional group -OH is an alcohol. The identity of an individual alcohol depends on the identity of R, the alkyl group. For example, when R is the methyl group, we have CH30H. This is methyl alcohol or methanol, also known as wood alcohol. It is highly toxic and can cause blindness or even death in relatively small doses. When R is the ethyl group, we have CH3CH20H. This is ethyl alcohol or ethanol. Ethanol is the alcohol in alcoholic beverages. When R is the isopropyl group, we have (CH3)2CHOH. This is isopropyl alcohol.

  • How are pollutants transformed after their release into the environment? How are organisms exposed, and how do physiological alterations impact population dynamics and community structure? What direct or indirect impacts occur? As early as the 50s and 60s people living near industrial plants began to recognize undesirable changes in their environment - and to ask these very questions. The discipline of environmental toxicology addresses these questions.

  • Despite the tremendous progress that has been achieved in water pollution, almost 40% of the U.S. waters that have been assessed by states do not meet water quality goals. About 20,000 water bodies are impacted by siltation, nutrients, bacteria, oxygen depletion substances, metals, habitat alterations, pesticides, and toxic organic chemicals. With pollution from point sources being dramatically reduced, nonpoint source pollution is the major cause of most water that does not meet water quality goals.

  • Food can be defined as the nutritive material taken into an organism for growth, work, or repair and for maintaining the vital processes. Food sustains life, and, as such, many individuals view food as an uncomplicated, pure source of nutrition. Therefore, such individuals are often bewildered to learn that food is comprised of an array of natural chemicals, and not all the chemicals are nutrients or enhance nutritive value, but in fact may decrease nutritional value or, worse still, are toxic (e.g., naturally occurring toxicants).
