La mort de l'enfance : évolution de la quête initiatique dans la littérature franco-canadienne

Camylle Gauthier-Trépanier
Ma thèse étudie la quête initiatique dans des œuvres littéraires franco-canadiennes pour adolescents en se fondant sur les étapes présentées par Simone Vierne, soit la préparation, la mort initiatique et la renaissance. Je me suis intéressée à l’évolution de la quête initiatique dans la littérature jeunesse franco-canadienne entre les années 1970, époque où Vierne publie ses premiers travaux, et 2015 afin de voir si la littérature ne permet pas de suppléer aux rites de passage...

Quantitative high-throughput analysis of domoic acid in mussel tissue homogenates using laser ablation electrospray ionization – MS/MS

Daniel Beach, Callee M. Walsh & Pearse McCarron
We investigated the use of Laser Ablation Electrospray Ionization (LAESI) with MS/MS detection for Domoic Acid (DA) analysis directly from mussel tissue homogenates without sample extraction, cleanup or chromatographic separation. DA could be selectively detected directly from mussel tissue homogenates using LAESI-MS/MS in selected reaction monitoring scan mode. A matrix matched calibration curve was used to quantify mussel tissue reference materials and results were in good agreement with two established methods, LC-UV and LC-MS/MS, within...

Update on certified reference materials available from the NRC Biotoxin Metrology program

Michael Arthur Quilliam, Pearse McCarron, Krista Thomas, Sheila M. Crain, Sabrina Giddings, Daniel G. Beach, Pat LeBlanc, Ruth Perez Calderon, Nona Aisha Lewis, Kelley Reeves & William Hardstaff
Routine monitoring of shellfish for algal biotoxins prior to harvest is essential for consumer safety and is necessary for international trade. In addition to seafood, toxins of cyanbacterial origin pose risks for the use of freshwater supplies. Accurate calibration standards as well as matrix certified reference materials (CRMs) are essential for method development and validation. The National Research Council’s (NRC) metrology program produces CRMs for marine and freshwater toxins under a rigorous quality system. Marine...

Development of an MS/HRMS library for rapid quantitation, confirmation and dereplication of marine toxins using all-ion high resolution mass spectrometry

Manoella Sibat, Zita Zendong, Thomas Glauner, Veronique Sechet, Christine Herrenknecht, Zouher Amzil, Pearse McCarron & Philipp Hess
A Q-TOF All-ion MS/MS method was developed for non-targeted analysis of marine biotoxins. Quantitation and confirmatory analysis of known and regulated toxins was carried out with this method. Non-targeted results were dereplicated using an in-house developed library.

VOC emissions from evaporative sources in residential garages

Doyun Won, Gang Nong, Wenping Yang & Ewa Lusztyk
The goal of this study was to characterize volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from consumer products that Canadians commonly store in attached garages. A total of 30 consumer products were tested for 121 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in one large-scale (2 m3) chamber and four small-scale (50 L) chambers for 4 days under standard conditions of 50% RH, ~23 C and 1 air change per hour. Additionally, the air concentrations of selected VOCs1 in the...

Material emission information from: 105 building materials and consumer products

Doyun Won & Wenping Yang
This report summarizes the emission factors of 72 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from 105 household materials tested under the “material emissions testing for naphthalene” (B3333) in 2010 and 2011. The test specimens included 61 building materials/furnishings and 44 consumer products. The tests were conducted using a fast screening method in a micro-scale chamber system in accordance with ASTM standard D7706–11. In addition to air samples taken for the naphthalene emission characterization, one more air sample...

Material emissions testing: VOCs from wood, paint, and insulation materials

Doyun Won, Gang Nong, Wenping Yang & Peter Collins
Data from emissions testing conducted by NRC in 2012/2013 of 52 building materials was used to model resulting indoor concentrations in a typical Canadian house (Won et al., 2013). These results helped to provide updated identification of major indoor VOC sources, and led to the selection of paints and wood-based products as priority materials for further evaluation. The significant usage of insulation materials in residential construction, coupled with a lack of emissions data for this...

An Exploration of the Counselling Experiences of Women who Work in the Indoor Sex Industry

Camila Velez
The purpose of this qualitative study is to enrich the understanding of the counselling and psychotherapy experiences of women who have previously or currently worked in the Canadian sex industry. I conducted semi-structured interviews with 6 participants ranging in age from 19 to 52 who described an individual counselling experience in which they revealed their sex work employment status. I analyzed the interview drawing from a Gadamerian hermeneutic phenomenological approach grounded in feminist standpoint theory....

Active acoustic data from Kongsfjorden, Svalbard

Jorgen Berge, Maxime Geoffroy & Geir Johnsen
The presence of Arctic pelagic organisms during the polar night is poorly documented, especially as boreal Atlantic species are expanding their range northward. Patterns of diel vertical migration (DVM) of crustaceans enhancing the biological pump are characteristic, yet poorly known processes of high latitude fjords of Svalbard. This dataset was collected in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard, during January 2017 to document the distribution of pelagic organisms using acoustic instruments. An automated surface vehicle was equipped with an...

Material emissions data: 52 building materials tested for 124 compounds

Doyun Won, Gang Nong, Wenping Yang & Hans Schleibinger
A total of 52 building materials were tested for 124 volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in small-scale (50 L) and micro-scale chambers (44 mL) in accordance with ASTM standards. The test materials included 25 dry building materials (vinyl flooring, area rugs, laminated flooring, solid wood flooring, interior panels, structural materials, insulation and acoustical ceiling tile) and 27 wet materials (paint, wood finish/stain, polyurethane coating, adhesive and caulking).
