Contact. . World Environment News. U.S. Oil Spill Hurting Energy ... Photo: Jim Young The massive, uncontrolled oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is roiling President Barack Obama's carefully laid plans to open up America's coasts to drilling again, while rattling Congress to a point where the oil industry's exploratory plans could face a big shake-up. politicians are now in no mood to consider plans to open up new areas for drilling but if the crisis drags on, it could also affect exploration in existing production areas, such as the Gulf. What I don't want to happen is mass hysteria to take hold and we put a moratorium once again on exploration and a moratorium on new drilling and perhaps even a moratorium on existing production. 'DEAD ON ARRIVAL' At immediate risk is Obama's balancing act in which he backs new offshore exploration to win over Republicans so he can follow an agenda closer to his heart: enact a climate bill that fights global warming and gets the country to embrace renewable energy.

In carbon steel, strain aging is one of the important factors influencing non-propagating crack behavior, which is related to the fatigue limit. A couple of 0.13 % carbon steel specimens with a large-scale plastic zone were aging heat-treated; one was a hydrogen-charged specimen, whereas the other was an uncharged specimen. The Vickers hardness of the hydrogen-charged specimen was found to be lower than that of the uncharged specimen. of Mechanical Engineering Science, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyushu Univ., Nishi-ku, Fukuoka Yamamoto, Aki-nori Dept. of Mechanical Engineering Science, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyushu Univ., Nishi-ku, Fukuoka Oda, Yasuji Dept. of...

As we have seen, the pattern of cancer varies from one society to another; and these different patterns reflect not only the different pool of genes in each society but also the environmental differences which may play a part in causing cancer. In this context, ‘environmental differences’ embrace the social, economic and political circumstances in which individuals find themselves. Such circumstances will determine many facets of their lives, including many of the physical features of their environment. Advanced industrial processes potentially expose people to more carcinogens cancer-causing chemicals but if the individuals who may in some way be affected by those processes happen to live in a country with a free press, pressure groups, ‘watchdog’ organizations and a government responsible to an electorate, there is a better chance of the necessary environmental safeguards being put in place.

... inhibitors. Answer. Write. 0 Q: How would enzyme activity be regulated or controlled by environment factors, co-factors, and enzyme inhibitors. Comment. Flag. Answer Write a comment... 1 Answer. 0 Environmental factors such as temperature and pH levels effect enzyme activity. If the temperature is too cold then not enough collisions not enough kinetic energy will occur between the substrate and the enzyme so the reaction it catalyses will be slow. If the temperature is too hot the enzyme will be denatured which means the hydrogen bonds on the active site will break changing the shape of it and no longer allowing substrates to bind. The same with pH levels, it can change the charge of the enzyme which prevents the substrate from binding. There are two types of enzyme inhibitors one which binds directly to the active site, preventing the substrate from binding and another which binds to another part of the enzyme but still changes its shape not allowing the substrate to bind. answers.yahoo.com /question/in...

... Digital Urban. Google Street View - A Closer Look. As we posted a couple of days ago Google have added panoramas to their Google Maps services with the launch of Street View. Taking a closer look the data is provided by Immersive Media Corp, a digital video imaging company founded in 1994 captured in what is basically streaming video linked to a GPS. Using an 11 lens camera system pictured right, see ' What is Immersive Media ' for more info data is streamed in and merged in realtime to provide panoramic video. We used an early unit five years ago to capture panoramas around London, the system is easy to set up, basically the camera is mounted via a suction cup to the roof of a car and the data saved via a small form PC. Pictured below is the car used to capture the images for Google: The YouTube movie below highlights the use Google Street View in San Francisco - note the ability to zoom but also the numerous problems with stitching and image matching:.

*  DLR - Institute of Flight Systems - Sensor Fusion and Environmental Perception
... Sensor Fusion and Environmental Perception. Real-time 3D Obstacle Mapping during a flight in an urban area. A safe flight in arbitrary scenarios requires a situational awareness that is able to consider the properties of the environment. This mainly means that the aircraft has to sense and avoid dangers by itself, even during wireless data link losses and beyond the pilot's line of sight. This becomes possible through the environmental perception with cameras, laser range finders, and other sensors and the application of intelligent algorithms that integrate the environmental properties into flight control. For the evaluation of new methods, the image and sensor data processing system was integrated into the simulation environment and into flight control. Data fusion of satellite navigation, camera, laser, and inertial sensors is gaining importance as well as the integration of the whole sensor data processing chain into a reliable flying system. Amongst others, the environment sensors are used to detect...

After mastering the upper speed limits of some top-of-the-line equipment he contacted the company asking if there was a way to unlock the software-imposed speed restriction. They laughed at him; a motivation that he used to build his own that is already five times faster.

... Starkville sidewalk ordinance in the works March 20, 2009 Tim Pratt -. Â STARKVILLE -- While Starkville residents will see massive repairs to city streets and drainage systems this year, the city's newly formed sidewalk committee is working hard to improve things for pedestrians. The committee met Thursday to work on an ordinance that would require builders to construct sidewalks alongside all new public or private roads within the city. The group only serves in an advisory capacity and eventually will present the ordinance to the city's Board of Aldermen for consideration, but on Thursday agreed on how to word a section involving construction of single-family homes. According to the section agreed upon by the committee, the ordinance would require builders to construct sidewalks in front of all new single-family detached homes before the city issues certificates of occupancy. The section does not apply to commercial or multi-family residential developments, though the committee soon will begin working o...

... has many health, environmental, and economic benefits. Factors influencing walkability include the presence or absence and quality of footpath s, sidewalk s or other pedestrian rights-of-way, traffic and road conditions, land use patterns, building accessibility, and safety, among others. Walkability is an important concept in sustainable urban design. Major infrastructural factors include access to mass transit, presence and quality of footpaths, buffers to moving traffic planter strips, on-street parking or bike lanes and pedestrian crossing s, aesthetics, nearby local destinations, air quality, shade or sun in appropriate seasons, street furniture, traffic volume and speed. Health. Due to discrepancies between residents' health in inner city neighborhoods and suburb an neighborhoods with similar walkability measures, it has been suggested that further research is needed to find additional built environment factors to be included in walkability indices.

In May we. announced. that we had mistakenly included code in our software in Street View cars that collected WiFi payload data. As soon as we discovered our error, we not only stopped collecting WiFi data entirely, but also grounded our fleet of cars globally to give us time to remove the WiFi scanning equipment and discuss what had happened with local regulators. The WiFi data collection equipment has been removed from our cars in each country and the independent security experts. Stroz Friedberg. have approved a protocol to ensure any WiFi-related software is also removed from the cars before they start driving again.*. Having spoken to the relevant regulators, we have decided to start Street View driving in Ireland, Norway, South Africa and Sweden again starting next week. We expect to add more countries in time.

Four seasonal changes are experienced only by countries that are situated along the polar  zones of the Earth. While summer, autumn and spring permit individuals to stroll at anytime, winter has imposed several limitations to the activities of the people. This is because sidewalks are typically filled with ice that somehow impedes outdoor activities to be done and causes roads to be unsurpassed by cars. However, science has made it possible for people to travel and prevent any vehicular accidents to take place despite the icy roads and sidewalks. The application of salt is basically done to allay any onset of accident that may be precipitated by the liquid nature of ice that makes roads and pathways slippery. Apart from accident prevention purposes, salt is put on icy sidewalks because salt has the capacity to interact with the freezing point of ic...

HARWINTON >> The first stage of the sidewalk repair project, under the LoCIP grant funds given to the town, began on Monday at the town hall. The sidewalk project, which was budgeted for $53,000 with the actual cost of work coming under $15,000 or $20,000 less, is a solution to safety hazards at the town hall and library. According to First Selectman Mike Criss, there have been numerous instances of residents falling and hurting themselves so the repairs will hopefully minimize those instances. The whole project will be done by T.R. Design in Bristol and includes construction at the town hall, library and senior center with the senior center work already completed.

So if my front door's unlocked, you can just walk in, take what you like, and it's my fault. If you have an open network, you have bigger problems than Google's brief interception on one occasion. You're absolutely right, there is a reasonable expectation of privacy when: you, are in your home or other private locations, and, you take steps to make / maintain that location private.

Green space for healthier cities Written By : Susanna Murley on July 9, 2012 Asthma Disparities Series. When it comes to maintaining respiratory health, living in an environment with good air quality is clearly an important factor. In many urban areas inhabited by low-income populations, this clean air is nowhere to be found. Having green space within a city can play a significant role in reducing air pollution as well as mitigating the dangerous urban heat island effect. The need for green space is often recognized in more affluent parts of a city, while low-income areas are neglected. When these less affluent communities are overlooked, there can be serious health consequences such as the extreme disparity in negative asthma outcomes in the black and Hispanic children who inhabit these neglected areas.

Dealerships in a time of transition Daniel Strohl. Jan 5th, 2011 at 8am. 2 comments. What struck me the most as I browsed through the selection of more than 120 vintage Chevrolet and some Oldsmobile and Cadillac dealership photos that Craig Hover posted to Picasa last month is just how much dealerships changed during that time. The photoset seems to start in about 1961 or 1962, depicting mom-n-pop places, usually in brick storefronts along the Main Streets of little towns, with used car lots carved out of empty lots between downtown buildings. Then by the end of that decade, the dealerships – some of which appear to be the same ones depicted earlier, move into much larger aluminum-sided, flat-topped buildings located outside of town with plenty of room for massive inventories. Gotta wonder how many of these dealerships are still around and in these same buildings. Twelve Awesome Cars with Whitewall Tires Coker Picks their favorites. 2 Comments - Leave a Reply.

MONTEBELLO — Authorities are investigating the death of a man whose body was found on a Montebello sidewalk early Saturday. The man’s name was not released pending notification of his family, Montebello police Lt. Luis Lopez said. He was initially described as a Los Angeles man in his 40s. At the outset of the investigation, “There doesn’t appear to be any foul play,” the lieutenant said. “We responded to a call of a man down at Lincoln and Howard avenues,” Lopez said. “He was found lying on the south sidewalk.” The initial report was made by a local resident out for a morning walk, he said. Paramedics pronounced the man man dead at the scene, police said. The body showed signs of significant trauma on the head that appeared consistent with a fall to the ground, Lopez said. “Preliminarily, robbery can be ruled out,” he said. “He had all of his belongings. It looks as though he may have just f...

(1/7312) Relative influences of sex, race, environment, and HIV infection on body composition in adults.

BACKGROUND: The factors that control body composition in disease are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: We planned to compare the relative influences of HIV infection, sex, race, and environment on body composition. METHODS: We analyzed results of body composition studies performed by bioelectrical impedance analysis in 1415 adults from 2 cohorts: white and African American men and women from the United States, and African men and women (279 HIV-infected and 1136 control). The effects of sex and HIV infection on weight, body cell mass, and fat-free mass were analyzed by using both unadjusted and age-, weight-, and height-adjusted data. RESULTS: Control men weighed more and had more body cell mass and fat-free mass than did control women, although control women had more fat. The strongest correlates with body composition were height and weight, followed by sex. HIV infection, age, environment, and race. Control men and women weighed more and had more body cell mass, fat-free mass, and fat than did HIV-infected men. However, differences in body composition between HIV-infected and control groups were strongly influenced by sex. Of the differences in weight between HIV-infected and uninfected subjects, fat-free mass accounted for 51% in men but only 18% in women, in whom the remainder was fat. Sex effects were similar in African and American groups. CONCLUSIONS: Sex has a marked effect on the changes in body composition during HIV infection, with women losing disproportionately more fat than men. Sex-related differences in body composition were narrower in the HIV-infected groups. Race and environment had smaller effects than sex and HIV infection.  (+info)

(2/7312) Clinical, biochemical and molecular genetic features of Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy.

Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) has traditionally been considered a disease causing severe and permanent visual loss in young adult males. In nearly all families with LHON it is associated with one of three pathogenic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations, at bp 11778, 3460 or 14484. The availability of mtDNA confirmation of a diagnosis of LHON has demonstrated that LHON occurs with a wider range of age at onset and more commonly in females than previously recognised. In addition, analysis of patients grouped according to mtDNA mutation has demonstrated differences both in the clinical features of visual failure and in recurrence risks to relatives associated with each of the pathogenic mtDNA mutations. Whilst pathogenic mtDNA mutations are required for the development of LHON, other factors must be reponsible for the variable penetrance and male predominance of this condition. Available data on a number of hypotheses including the role of an additional X-linked visual loss susceptibility locus, impaired mitochondrial respiratory chain activity, mtDNA heteroplasmy, environmental factors and autoimmunity are discussed. Subacute visual failure is seen in association with all three pathogenic LHON mutations. However, the clinical and experimental data reviewed suggest differences in the phenotype associated with each of the three mutations which may reflect variation in the disease mechanisms resulting in this common end-point.  (+info)

(3/7312) Mitochondrial involvement in Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, hereditary spastic paraplegia and Friedreich's ataxia.

Respiratory chain dysfunction has been identified in several neurodegenerative disorders. In Friedreich's ataxia (FA) and Huntington's disease (HD), where the respective mutations are in nuclear genes encoding non-respiratory chain mitochondrial proteins, the defects in oxidative phosphorylation are clearly secondary. In Parkinson's disease (PD) the situation is less clear, with some evidence for a primary role of mitochondrial DNA in at least a proportion of patients. The pattern of the respiratory chain defect may provide some clue to its cause; in PD there appears to be a selective complex I deficiency; in HD and FA the deficiencies are most severe in complex II/III with a less severe defect in complex IV. Aconitase activity in HD and FA is severely decreased in brain and muscle, respectively, but appears to be normal in PD brain. Free radical generation is thought to be of importance in both HD and FA, via excitotoxicity in HD and abnormal iron handling in FA. The oxidative damage observed in PD may be secondary to the mitochondrial defect. Whatever the cause(s) and sequence of events, respiratory chain deficiencies appear to play an important role in the pathogenesis of neurodegeneration. The mitochondrial abnormalities induced may converge on the function of the mitochondrion in apoptosis. This mode of cell death is thought to play an important role in neurodegenerative diseases and it is tempting to speculate that the observed mitochondrial defects in PD, HD and FA result directly in apoptotic cell death, or in the lowering of a cell's threshold to undergo apoptosis. Clarifying the role of mitochondria in pathogenesis may provide opportunities for the development of treatments designed to reverse or prevent neurodegeneration.  (+info)

(5/7312) Plasma leptin concentrations in Pima Indians living in drastically different environments.

OBJECTIVE: Plasma leptin, an important signal for the regulation of energy stores, is known to be influenced by many hormonal factors, but may also be affected by behavioral and environmental factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of lifestyle (diet composition, level of physical activity) on plasma leptin concentrations among Pima Indians living in drastically different environments. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: We studied 224 Mexican Pima Indians (115 women, 109 men) living a traditional lifestyle in a remote, mountainous area of northwest Mexico and 418 U.S. Pima Indians (281 women, 137 men) living a North American lifestyle on the Gila River Indian Reservation in Arizona. We hypothesized that the absolute value of leptin would be lower in Mexican Pima Indians because of their lower percent body fat, but could be further influenced by their lifestyle, independent of body composition. RESULTS: Leptin concentration (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay [ELISA]) was strongly correlated with percent fat (bioimpedance) in Mexican Pima Indians (r = 0.83, P < 0.0001) and U.S. Pima Indians (r = 0.86, P < 0.0001). Among U.S. Pima Indians, independent of percent fat, subjects with type 2 diabetes had lower leptin than nondiabetic subjects (difference = 6.9 +/- 1.0 ng/ml, P < 0.002). Among nondiabetic subjects, Mexican Pima Indians had lower absolute leptin concentrations than U.S. Pima Indians, but higher after adjustment for percent body fat, waist circumference, age, and sex. In a subset of 70 pairs of subjects matched for sex and percent body fat, leptin concentration was 4.4 +/- 1.0 ng/ml (P < 0.0001) higher in Mexican Pima Indians versus U.S. Pima Indians. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that independent of body composition, leptin concentration may be increased by environmental factors, such as a high-carbohydrate diet and a high level of physical activity.  (+info)

(6/7312) Lipoprotein(a) levels and apolipoprotein(a) isoforms related to life style risk factors.

Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] has been considered to be a predictor of premature coronary heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. Lp(a) levels are largely genetically determined, but the detailed mechanism of Lp(a) elevation is uncertain. We examined the association between Lp(a) levels and apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] phenotypes as well as that of Lp(a) level and other various conditions. The subjects were 280 healthy Japanese (102 males and 178 females) aged 39 to 70 years who were living in a rural community in 1992. We obtained apo(a) phenotypes determined by SDS-PAGE as well as Lp(a) levels and other cardiovascular risk factors. We combined apo(a) phenotypes form 4 groups according to molecular weights (from high apo(a) molecular weight to low: I, II, III and IV). Lp(a) levels were associated with apo(a) phenotype-groups, that is, they were inversely associated with apo(a) molecular weight. Small apo(a) phenotypes were less frequent than large ones. The median Lp(a) level was higher in smoking (29.2 mg/dL) than in non-smoking subjects (18.5 mg/dL) in phenotype-group III. Adjusted means of total cholesterol and fibrinogen levels in apo(a) phenotype-group IV were the highest of all phenotype-groups. Age, apo(a) phenotype, smoking status, total cholesterol and fibrinogen were positively correlated with Lp(a) levels by multiple regression analysis. Lp(a) levels were found to be mainly associated with apo(a) phenotype, but varied broadly within the same apo(a) phenotype at various conditions, such as smoking status and high total cholesterol.  (+info)

(7/7312) Alternatives to minimize the environmental impact of large swine production units.

Large swine production facilities have become controversial additions to the agricultural landscape as their numbers and sizes have increased. In addition to being larger enterprises, these units have involved greater specialization, the influx of outside capital, and the employment of labor without extensive investment in the enterprise. Major complaints have included water pollution and odors. Water pollution complaints have been related to surface and groundwater resources. Accidental spills, structural failure, and purposeful discharges have been noted. Odor problems are most often related to manure management techniques. Large anaerobic lagoons and irrigation of lagoon effluent have the potential to emit odors that travel long distances. Fortunately, technology and management alternatives exist to achieve higher levels of environmental acceptability. More effective water pollution and odor control alternatives generally increase construction and operating costs. Producers, regulatory officials, and the local public have an opportunity to interact to achieve progress in establishing acceptable compromises. This article identifies the range of existing and evolving alternative strategies and provides some assistance to producers and neighbors in achieving the necessary equilibrium.  (+info)

(8/7312) Ocular development and involution in the European cave salamander, Proteus anguinus laurenti.

The anatomy and development of the eye of Proteus anguinus are described. The relationships between organogenesis of the eye in embryos and larva and its involution in the young and the adult are discussed. The availability (in breeding cultures) of a significant number of Proteus embryos (which are normally rare) allowed experimental analysis of the effects of light, xenoplastic differentiation and thyroid hormones on the development of the eye. The results of this study suggest that development and involution of the eye of Proteus are controlled by genetic factors which are not greatly influenced by environment, and one can, therefore, consider the microphthalmy of Proteus as a relict characteristic which is the result of a specific development with disturbance of the normal ontogenic process.  (+info)

I want to know what makes a male gay? I know some people say that they knew at age 5 and other at age 45. So it must not be too much about the environment. I have no gay people in my family and my husband has none in his (that we know of). What do you think our chances are of having a "normal" child?
Do you think over-mothering or "smothering" has anything to do with it?
If being gay is in you from birth, how come some men dont know until they are old?
----------

While I can certainly say that I've known a few 'lesbians by choice' in my day (women who choose to be only with women because they believe that men are controlling/chauvenistic, etc.), homosexuality is 99.9% genetic.


What skin problems occur when in baking environment and how to treat them?


Skin feels like flour! The first time I left work my skin was blotchy and itchy. Second time just red for a few hours after work. Will this get better once I get used to the environment?
From working in a bakery?
----------

The best protection is to thoroughly massage an essential oil into skin. Use a thin, non greasy  oil like lavender, clove, rosewood. They are all beneficial to skin, protect it, feed it vital essential nutrients and are perfect moisturizers so you will not need to use any other. They quickly absorb into skin so all you need to do is wipe surplus off by splashing with water and drying, Then wash completely after work. There will be no more irritation.


Does producing grain have any bad effects on the environment?


I need to know if producing grain promotes a bad effect on the environment. Thanks!
----------

Yes, it contributes to soil erosion.  Crop rotation and no-till practices can reduce this, but not completely eliminate it.  

Also, the emissions from farm implements pollute the air.  

Finally, while not necessarily damaging to the environment, millions of animals are killed during the production of grain crops...mostly insects and rodents, but also deer, fox, and other animals.

*whoever gave me the thumbs down obviously knows NOTHING about agriculture!  Sorry kid, but it's true.


What kind of makeup is suitable for this professional environment?


I am a scientist working in an academic environment. People are pretty low key here (they wear jeans). But I like to look nice without looking over made up. Any suggestions on what makeup essentials/ look I should use? (I am blonde and fair skinned, and tend to wear nice jeans paired with nice shirts/sweaters to work). I want to look nice but I also want to be taken seriously.
----------

Personally, I would go for a natural look.

Keep your skin hydrated and wear a powder foundation, it covers well and isn't too cakey. A light blush is nice too, especially on fair skin.

Use white eyeliner to make your eyes look alert, make sure you blend it well because sometimes it can look chunky. A thin line of liquid liner on top and curled lashes with a soft mascara is great. Maybe a bit of a peachy shimmer (not glitter) on your lids.

Chapstick is good for your lips, it's not too shiney and keeps a healthy color.

Basically, for your profession I'd suggest looking clean and the natural look is by far your best bet. It looks beautiful, enhances your natural beauty and makes you look more professional. Less is more!


What is the connection betweetn metabolisam temperature of the environment and body weight?


What is the connection betweetn metabolisam temperature of the environment and body weight?
Some people complain that are skinny because of their high metabolism. During the winter temperatures are lower so metabolism of mammals is higher. Then why do we tend to gain weight (both muscle and fat) more easily in the winer time?
----------

okay, i have seen that Kathy person post the same thing to a lot of other questions.

but i did not understand anything about yours. except for the last paragraph. sorry.


Does being a vegetarian help the environment?


I've always loved the idea of saving the environment,but sadly im 15 and my parents think its silly so they dont recycle and stuff like that.But i have been a vegetarian for a year now and i was wondering it it helped the environment?
----------

NO but the cult leaders continue to tell their followers that it does so that they will stay with the program and keep sending money to peta


What kind of environment/condition can you find strep bacteria?


I need the kind of environment or condition you would most likely find strep bacteria. Like I guess in forest areas, cleaner rooms, contaiminated air. . .  etc. ..  i have no clue. and if you could, include where you got the information but no need. thank you!
In other words, Where can you find strep bacteria?
----------

usually on things like rails and door knobs because when people cough on their hands they touch these things and the bacteria thrive on it until they move onto someone else and infect them.
