  • Comparative microbial source tracking methods for identification of fecal contamination sources at Sunnyside Beach in the Toronto region area of concern

    Several beaches within the Toronto region area of concern have persistent issues with fecal contamination, causing a beach beneficial use impairment (BUI). In this study, Escherichia coli, including ampicillin-resistant strains, were enumerated via culturable and quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) methods. Microbial source tracking (MST) markers (for general ...

  • 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 ...

  • Rendering Retrofit - Case Study

    Challenge A prominent rendering facility in the southeastern United States was faced with loadings that were too high for the existing dissolved air flotation (DAF) unit. To minimize the amount of carry-over into their secondary system, they were forced to run at a very slow rate. Still, too many solids were being discharged from the existing DAF into the anaerobic pond. The ...

  • 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 ...

  • Effect of composting on sludge contaminated with heavy metals from three different tannery streams and their bioavailability to plants

    This research was conducted to study the influence of composting on tannery sludge contaminated by Cr, Cd, Zn, Cu, and Ni. Composting of sludge streams was performed in three different piles for 60 days. The results showed that the total concentration of heavy metals was increased with composting, except in the TT-3 sample where the concentrations of Cd, Cu, and Ni did not increase. The ...

  • Averting Armageddon: in search of nuclear governance

    The making of nuclear weapons policy often has surprisingly little relationship with any objective rendering of what works and what does not. The making of nuclear policy is a remarkably imperfect process. It is a complex, fluid bargaining process subject to the tides of politics, budgets, threat perception, ideology, technology, parochial service rivalries, flawed information and sometimes just ...

  • 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 ...

  • Occurrence of condensed Tannins in Wheat and feasibility for reducing pasture bloat

    Bloat can be a serious problem for ruminant livestock grazing pastures of winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the southern Great Plains. Tannins in forage can reduce the incidence and severity of bloat. We measured the content and variability of total phenolics and condensed tannins (CT) in forage extracts from wheat varieties and experimental lines (ExpLines) to assess the feasibility of ...

  • Costs of land use for conservation in Central Europe and future agricultural policy

    In Germany and other countries of Central Europe, biodiversity in the rural countryside is best conserved by applying traditional land-use methods, such as low input sheep and cattle grazing. These are very uneconomical according to conventional accounting and can only be carried out at present by benefitting heavily from the subsidy schemes of the CAP. Trade liberalisation demands the abolition ...

  • 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 ...

  • Signals, signal devices, and signal space in organisations: a conceptual lens to crisis evasion

    Given that warning signs precede all crises, it is surprising that not much attention has been given to understand why these signals "disappear" and may not appear again until after some "avoidable" calamity has reoccurred. Disasters are often anecdotally anteceded by stories involving unheeded predictions. It is commonly recognised that the path a signal traverses through has significant ...
