5 ways to train employees to avoid malware and viruses.docx

Mustard IT
There are many different ways that viruses and malware can make their way onto your computer. Businesses are especially at risk because of the amount of users present and utilizing the network. Running anti-virus software is rule number one for keeping computers clean, but there are other ways to train employees to keep their PCs free of malicious attacks. 1. Do not click on a download button if it looks suspicious. Download buttons can turn...

Central immunological position of the human blood group O in light of the Duffy groups.

Peter Arend
Blood group A phenotype development is associated with the impaired formation of adaptive and innate immunoglobulins due to clonal selection and phenotypic, glycosidic accommodation of the plasma proteins. This group is significantly burdened with an increased risk of developing distinct types of cancer when compared with the blood group O and is exerting strong susceptibility to Malaria tropica or infection by Plasmodium falciparum. While Malaria tertiana, caused by Plasmodium vivax, ovale and knowlesi, is the...

AGE OF EARTH AND EVOLUTION – CAN RELIGION AND SCIENCE RECONCILE?

Muhammad Nabeel Musharraf, Nasrullah Kabooro & Mohammad Ali Leghari​
The debate about the creation of Earth and the beginning of life is often considered one of the main reasons for tensions between the religious and the scientific communities. There is a lack of agreement regarding how the process of creation (or evolution) began and how it moved forward. What do major Abrahamic religions really believe about the creation of Earth and origins of life on its? Is there a difference of viewpoints about these...

Environmental relevant levels of a benzodiazepine (oxazepam) alters important behavioral traits in a common planktivorous fish, (Rutilus rutilus)

Tomas Brodin, Johanna Nordling, Annelie Lagesson, Jonatan Klaminder, Gustav Hellström, Bent Christensen & Jerker Fick
Environmental pollution by pharmaceuticals is increasingly recognized as a major threat to aquatic ecosystems worldwide. A complex mix of pharmaceuticals enters waterways via treated wastewater effluent and many remain biochemically active after the drugs reach aquatic systems. However, to date little is known regarding the ecological effects that might arise following pharmaceutical contamination of aquatic environments. One group of particular concern is behaviorally modifying pharmaceuticals as seemingly minor changes in behavior may initiate marked ecological...

Development and field validation of a community-engaged particulate matter air quality monitoring network in imperial, CA

Graeme N Carvlin, Humberto Lugo, Luis Olmedo, Ester Bejarano, Alexa Wilkie, Dan Meltzer, Michelle Wong, Galatea King, Amanda Northcross, Michael Jerrett, Paul B. English, Donald Hammond & Edmund Seto
The Imperial County Community Air Monitoring Network was developed as part of a community-engaged research study to provide real-time particulate matter (PM) air quality information at a high spatial resolution in Imperial County, California. The network augmented the few existing regulatory monitors and increased monitoring near susceptible populations. Monitors were both calibrated and field validated, a key component of evaluating the quality of the data produced by the community-monitoring network. This paper examines the performance...

Preparation of dendrimer polyol/mesoporous silica nanocomposite for reversible CO2 adsorption: effect of pore size and polyol content.

Kamel Ghomari, Bouhadjar Boukoussa, Rachida Hamacha, Abdelkader Bengueddach, René Roy & Abdelkrim Azzouz
This paper focuses on the synthesis of polyol/MCM-48 nanocomposite materials with different percentage of polyalcohol dendrimer H20. The obtained materials have been used for CO2 adsorption. CO2-TPD analysis shows that the samples containing 1 and 3 wt% of H20 dendrimer have low CO2 adsorption capacity due to the occupation of active site, while the sample prepared by 0.5 wt% of H20 dendrimer, exhibit higher adsorption capacity and thermal stability although the adsorption capacity decreased with...

Theoretical and experimental investigations of mercury adsorption on hematite surfaces

Ji-Eun Jung, Simona Liguori, Adam D Jew, Gordon E Brown & Jennifer Wilcox
One of the biggest environmental concerns caused by coal-fired power plants is the emission of mercury (Hg), which is toxic metal. To control the emission of Hg from coal-derived flue gas, it is important to understand the behavior, speciation of Hg as well as the interaction between Hg and solid materials in the flue gas stream. In this study, atomic-scale theoretical investigations using density functional theory (DFT) were carried out in conjunction with lab-scale experimental...

Modification and application of coking coal by alkali pretreatment in wastewater adsorption

Shulei Li, Lihui Gao, Hong Wen, Guosheng Li & Yongtian Wang
Coking coal has been employed for coking wastewater adsorption treatment. The modification and adsorption of coking coal pretreated by alkali solution is discussed and compared in this study. Results demonstrated OH- could react with -COOH, -OH and minerals, which resulted in coal surface variations. As the hydroxide concentration is increased, surface hydrophobility increased and the zeta potential became less negative. A coal sample pretreated by 0.1 mol/L NaOH solution had the highest surface area and...

Future methane emissions from the heavy-duty natural gas transportation sector for stasis, high, medium, and low scenarios in 2035

Nigel N Clark, Derek R Johnson, David L McKain, W. Scott Wayne, Hailin Li, Joseph Rudek, Ronald A Mongold, Cesar Sandoval, April N Covington & John T Hailer
Today’s heavy-duty natural gas fueled fleet is estimated to represent less than two percent of the total fleet. However, over the next couple of decades, predictions are that the percentage could grow to represent as much as 50 percent. While fueling switching to natural gas could provide a climate benefit relative to diesel fuel, the potential for emissions of methane (a potent greenhouse gas) from natural gas fueled vehicles has been identified as a concern....

Drought tolerance induced by sound in Arabidopsis plants

Ignacio López-Ribera & Carlos M. Vicient
We examined the responses of sound-treated arabidopsis adult plants to water deprivation and the associated changes on gene expression. The survival of drought-induced plants was significantly higher in the sound treated plants (24,8%) compared to plants kept in silence (13,3%). RNA-seq revealed significant up-regulation of 87 genes including 32 genes involved in abiotic stress responses, 31 involved in pathogen responses, 11 involved in oxidation-reduction processes, 5 involved in the regulation of transcription, 2 genes involved...

Potential applications of luminescent molecular rotors in food science and engineering

Fatemah M. Alhassawi, Maria G. Corradini, Michael A. Rogers & Richard D. Ludescher
Fluorescent molecular rotors (MRs) are compounds whose emission is modulated by segmental mobility; photoexcitation generates a locally excited (LE), planar state that can relax either by radiative decay (emission of a photon) or by formation of a twisted intramolecular charge transfer (TICT) state that can relax nonradiatively due to internal rotation. If the local environment around the probe allows for rapid internal rotation in the excited state, fast non-radiative decay can either effectively quench the...

Türkçemiz Uzaya ve Hayvanlara İlk Yardım: İki Özel Projem (Lap Lambert Publishing Company, Almanya, Kitap ISBN:3330330740)

Dr.Musa Tokmak
Toplumda eksik gördüğümüz noktaların üzerine gidip kendi çapımızda fark yaratabiliyorsak ve problemi çözebiliyorsak bu bir aktivist harekettir. Aktivistlerin yaptığı işler “gönüllü” bir harekettir ve bir yaşam şeklidir. Benim ilk aktivist kampanyam “Türkçe isimlerin gök cisimlerine yada coğrafyalarına verilmesi” kampanyası idi. 2003 yılında NASA’dan Türkiye’de kampanya düzenlemek için e-maille izin aldım ve birçok Türkçe ismi NASA’ya gönderdim. 2003 yılından beri devam eden “Türkçemizuzaya” isimli aktivist hareketle binlerce Türkçe ismi uzay coğrafyasındaki kraterlere, dağlara, vb. yerlere verilmesi...

INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION OF ENVIRONMENTAL REFUGEES BASED ON THE MECHANISMS FOR THE PROTECTION OF INTERNATIONAL REFUGEE LAW

CARLA RIBEIRO VOLPINI SILVA & TAISSE JUNE BARCELOS MACIEL ROMANO
The impact of environmental, natural and anthropogenic events on a human's life is so striking as to put entire populations at risk. Thousands of people are forced to cross the borders of their states in search of minimum conditions of survival in the face of the imbalance of the environmental system, so that the migratory flows of the "environmental refugees" today present a great challenge in the international scenario, and only tend to increase. In...
