Galactic chemical evolution : Carbon through zinc
We calculate the evolution of heavy-element abundances from C to Zn in the solar neighborhood, adopting our new nucleosynthesis yields. Our yields are calculated for wide ranges of metallicity (Z = 0-Z circle dot) and the ...
Emergency: Implementing an Ambulance Despatch System
(Idea Publishing, 2006-12-15)
Impact of RTS/CTS Handshake on the Optical Packet Switched Local Area Network Performance
A centralized media access control protocol is designed to run optical packet switched traffic in local area networks. The design of the network concept was inspired by the IEEE802.11 wireless LAN protocol, although it has ...
Absorption of the nerve agent VX (O-ethyl-S-[2(di-isopropylamino)ethyl] methyl phosphonothioate) through pig, human and guinea pig skin in vitro
The physico-chemical properties of VX make the skin the most likely route of absorption into the human body. The development of effective medical countermeasures against such percutaneous threat agents relies on the use ...
Delivering patient choice in English acute hospital trusts
The role of the patient within the NHS has changed from supplicant to consumer to active participant. A demand-side patient-led approach is combining quasi-consumerism and participative democracy to inform and facilitate ...
Becoming connected, being caring
This paper highlights perspectives on action research in education, health and social care and was originally presented as a keynote at the International Practitioner Research Conference and Collaborative Action Research ...
Development and uptake of a scheme for predicting risk of severe light leaf spot on oilseed rape
To reduce reliance on fungicides for disease control on oilseed rape, Decision Support Systems (DSS) are being developed to guide fungicide applications as part of an integrated pest and disease management strategy. This ...
Psychosocial interventions for people with moderate to severe dementia : A systematic review
Introduction: Psychosocial interventions are recognised as important treatments for people with dementia. Attention is now focusing on the appropriateness of such interventions for people in different stages of the illness. ...
A functional group approach to the management of UK arable weeds to support biological diversity
Weeds have an important role in maintaining farmland biodiversity. This needs to be balanced with their potential negative impact on crop yield and quality. Mechanistic models of crop-weed competition are an important tool ...
Environment and the epochs of galaxy formation in the SDSS era
We analyse a sample of 1,652 elliptical galaxies morphologically selected from the SDSS DR4 with respect to their stellar population properties such as luminosity weighted ages, metallicities and /Fe element abundance ...
