  • In glaciology, starvation occurs when a glacier retreats, not because of temperature increases, but due to precipitation so low that the ice flow downward into the zone of ablation exceeds the replenishment from snowfall. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • Starvation is a severe deficiency in caloric energy intake, below the level needed to maintain an organism's life. (wikipedia.org)
  • Figures on actual starvation are difficult to come by, but according to the Food and Agriculture Organization, the less severe condition of undernourishment currently affects about 842 million people, or about one in eight (12.5%) people in the world population. (wikipedia.org)
  • bodies
  • I know that when we are dieting usually we will restrict our calories so that we are burning more calories than we eat but on a starvation diet we are actually restricting calories to such a point that we affect our metabolism and force our bodies to jump into a phase below dieting where we are not able to lose anymore. (fitnesstipsforlife.com)
  • Once we have run out of carbs our body should use fat and muscle tissue for energy but instead will start to lower our metabolism in a fight to protect our bodies…this is the starvation phase. (fitnesstipsforlife.com)

  • On aircraft, fuel starvation is often the result of incorrect fuel management, for example by selecting to feed the engine from an empty tank while fuel is present in another one. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another account describes a group of fur trappers stranded in harsh winter conditions who survived by stealing a local Native American cache of food, which resulted in their starvation. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, because of the bitter reality of large scale Earthly starvation, I cannot help but reluctantly find that by saying grace before a meal, we, the well-fed, are in effect assuming that our Creator has found one portion of this planet's populace worthy of nourishment while allowing another to go hungry.

  • Another besieged population of 42,000 is trapped in the town of Madaya, which has received two convoys of aid this month, but local aid workers have reported 32 deaths there from starvation. (voanews.com)

  • WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- A remnant of the largest iceberg ever recorded is blocking Antarctica's McMurdo Sound, threatening tens of thousands of penguin chicks with starvation and cutting off a supply route for three science stations, a New Zealand official said Tuesday. (redorbit.com)
  • similar
  • Fuel exhaustion (also called fuel depletion) is defined instead as an occurrence in which the vehicle in question becomes completely devoid of usable fuel, with results similar to those of fuel starvation. (wikipedia.org)
  • often
  • Victims of starvation are often too weak to sense thirst, and therefore become dehydrated. (wikipedia.org)
  • Modern scheduling algorithms normally contain code to guarantee that all processes will receive a minimum amount of each important resource (most often CPU time) in order to prevent any process from being subjected to starvation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Little
  • Starvation of glaciers is believed to have occurred during the Little Ice Age in parts of Alaska, the Himalayas and the Karakoram. (wikipedia.org)
  • however, we know little about how starvation alters the communities of gut microflora, and more importantly the repercussions that these microecological disturbances may have on the host organism. (springer.com)
  • mountain
  • When starvation does occur, however, it can almost always be reversed by slight changes in precipitation, such as are brought about by mountain ranges. (wikipedia.org)
  • experience
  • A high priority process A will run before a low priority process B. If the high priority process (process A) never blocks, the low priority process (B) will (in some systems) never be scheduled-it will experience starvation. (wikipedia.org)
  • fuel source
  • After prolonged periods of starvation the body has depleted its body fat and begins to burn primarily lean tissue and muscle as a fuel source. (wikipedia.org)
  • After prolonged periods of starvation, the body uses the proteins within muscle tissue as a fuel source. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • Fifteen to 20 people, four of them children, died of starvation in the Syrian city of Deir al-Zor last year, the United Nations said Saturday, citing unverified reports by health personnel. (voanews.com)
  • lose
  • Instead of using a starvation diet to lose what most diets tend to do is to confuse the mind and body so that our metabolism well stay up and will continue to burn fat while at the same time hopefully not burning the muscle that we have nearly as quickly. (fitnesstipsforlife.com)
  • Research
  • Overall, I believe that the future of starvation research is promising as long as we recognize that significant progress requires an integrative approach and the expertise of researchers in many subfields of biology. (springer.com)

  • river
  • In the fall of 1904 they brought the herd out of the high grazing areas and made it to the river bottoms which is now covered by Starvation reservoir. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Starvation in biofilms is due to nutrient consumption by cells located on the periphery of biofilm clusters and by reduced diffusion of substrates through the biofilm. (wikipedia.org)
  • In their new study, the scientists discovered that cells which repress their "bad-times" pumps when a nutrient is abundant were much more efficient at preparing for starvation and at recovering afterwards than the cells that had been genetically engineered to avoid this repression. (redorbit.com)
  • system
  • In an internal combustion engine, fuel starvation is defined as the failure of the fuel system to supply sufficient fuel to allow the engine to run properly, for example due to blockage, vapor lock, contamination by water, malfunction of the fuel pump or incorrect operation, leading to loss of power or engine stoppage.
