  • Does that SPME Arrow come with a free lunch?

    Here at Restek our company has a core value referred to as “In the Light.” For me, I like to think of it as no skeletons in the closet. So, time for me to shine a little light. I already introduced you to the SPME Arrow. I also addressed the SPME Arrow’s larger diameter and if there are any associated issues of septa coring. Today I reveal how much ...

  • Rendering

    Problem: The meat industry (poultry included) generates some 30 billion pounds of inedible surplus each year. The rendering industry contributes tremendously to efforts to maintain a clean and healthy environment and prevent a waste disposal problem by turning this otherwise unusable material into usable commodities. One challenge they face in creating a clean environment is the ...

  • A framework for the development of accurate acoustic calculations for games

    Despite the rapid development in acoustics calculation software during the last couple of decades, such advances have not been achieved uniformly. Various demands in different disciplines have shifted the focus to a number of different aspects of the calculations. Methods in game development have focused on speed and optimized calculation times to achieve interactive sound rendering, whilst ...

  • A different technology roadmapping methodology applied to a radiopharmacy industry

    This paper describes the development of a new methodology to support strategic planning. It makes use of Technological Roadmapping (TRM) associated with a simplified technique for detecting emerging research fronts by drilling into databases of scientific publications and patents. The customisation of the TRM process to a radio pharmacy unit and its association with an Emerging Research Fronts ...

  • Temporal-spatial fuzzy logic algorithm for effective dynamic load balancing in distributed 3D graphics engine

    To implement computationally-intensive tasks, typically, various levels of parallelism are used. Depending on the applications, the best possible results are produced by different parallelism approaches. Pipelining is an example of hardware-implemented parallelism; multithreading is effective for the software that supports it. In this paper, we propose a fuzzy logic algorithm for dynamic load ...

  • Memories of the tropics in industrial jungles: Constructing nature, contesting nature

    This essay examines zoos as a site of struggle in the construction of meanings and memories of human-nature relations. Modern zoos are symbols of imperial power and celebrations of the domination of nature. The grafting of “tropic worlds” onto these monuments of modernity renders the meaning of zoos more ambiguous, reflecting discursive struggles over the meaning of nature, questions about the ...

  • On the decline of scientific societies

    Classical studies describe the vital service that scientific societies rendered in the heyday of modern science. The sociology of science mostly ignores their decline, mainly because the received frameworks within which they work are too narrow to notice it: radicalism (Bacon, Descartes) and conventionalism (Duhem, Poincare) underrate the social aspect of science, whereas authoritarianism ...

  • Plasmid pcs1966, a new selection/counterselection tool for lactic acid bacterium strain construction based on the orop gene, encoding an orotate transporter from lactococcus lactis

    In this paper we describe the new selection/counterselection vector pCS1966, which is suitable for both sequence-specific integration based on homologous recombination and integration in a bacteriophage attachment site. This plasmid harbors oroP, which encodes a dedicated orotate transporter, and can replicate only in Escherichia coli. Selection ...

  • Influences on the survival and failure of small firms in Malaysia

    Logit regression is employed on 320 recipients of loans from the Malaysian Youth Economic Trust Fund to identify factors associated with whether they 'survived', defined as fully repaid their loans or 'failed', defined as being rendered involuntarily insolvent as a result of non-repayment. Explanatory variables are measures of human and social capital, motivation, location and types of strategy. ...

  • The changing landscape of the globalisation of international higher education

    The transformation of the higher education sector as a global export industry has proliferated to countries that have been the traditional source of international students. The traditional view of the globalisation of international education, the top-down approach, is no longer adequate to explain the phenomenon. A better model to explain the globalisation of international education, because it ...

  • Autophagy is activated for cell survival after endoplasmic reticulum stress

    Eukaryotic cells deal with accumulation of unfolded proteins in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) by the unfolded protein response, involving the induction of molecular chaperones, translational attenuation, and ER-associated degradation, to prevent cell death. Here, we found that the autophagy system is activated as a novel signaling pathway in ...

  • Technology transfer and implementation processes in developing countries

    In their struggle to survive, enterprises in developing countries are rushing to keep abreast with the technological advancements. As the indigenous technological capabilities of developing countries are weak by default, they intend to import technology internationally. Experience showed that, in doing so, a number of obstacles might render the technology acquisition process by them, less ...

  • An odor predictive model for rendering applications

    Abstract The rendering process consists of crushing and heating animal remains to produce by-products. The U.S. produces approximately 30 billion pounds of inedible animal by-products annually, exporting a market value of US$ 1.5 billion. Benefits of the rendering process include reducing total waste material, and helping the livestock industry stay competitive over ...

  • Valuing new product development and analysing license agreements for intellectual property

    Strategic investments in research and development (R&D) possess challenging features for valuation: the relationship between research effort and a marketable product is highly uncertain and there is always the possibility for some exogenous event or competitor behaviour to render the whole effort valueless. The R&D project studied here concerns the breeding of new fruit varieties in a programme ...

  • Alliances and networks: the next generation

    An increasing number of organisations view strategic alliances as the adequate response to rapid developments in market demands. By (temporarily) joining forces, products and services can be supplied when they are in demand. The poor success rate with respect to alliances (60—70% of all alliances are disbanded prematurely) indicates that co-operation of this type involves a number of ...

  • Computer use-innovativeness: cognition and context

    A test is reported of Midgley and Dowling's contingency model of consumer innovativeness which ascribes adoption of new products to innate innovativeness mediated by product field interest and situational facilitation/inhibition. Kirton's measure of adaptive-innovative cognitive style operationalises innate innovativeness, while Zaichkowsky's measure of personal involvement assesses product field ...
