Banana is perishable in nature, so it can not be stored for a longer period at ambient temperature. For good market price it requires that fruit must be transported to the distant market without spoilage. A few main challenges faced by fruit industry are the enormous post-harvest losses, lack of information on handling, packaging system and post-harvest treatments. Attempts have been made to retard ripening and delay the senescence of fresh fruits by means of post-harvest treatments with senescence inhibiting chemicals and shelf-life has been reported to be extended. It is hoped that finding of this investigation will provide the basic as well as applied information and it will be a great help to research workers, banana growers and traders for better handling and reducing the post harvest losses in transportation of banana. Keeping this view in mind, a distance market oriented research (the present study) is undertaken to investigate the possibilities of extending shelf life of banana fruits CV. 'Robusta' in ambient conditions with and without packaging.

Fig is a nutritious fruit, rich in fibre, potassium, calcium and iron with higher levels than other common fruits. Protection of fig fruit quality in the chain from harvesting to marketing is very important. Vibration often causes some damages to perishable fruits in transportation and reduces their quality. The fruit injury due to vibration is related to the transportation characteristics of vehicles, packaging boxes and condition of the road. The shrinkage of fresh fruits and vegetables, due to mechanical injury in the distribution chain between the grower and consumer, is reportedly estimated at around 30 to 40%. Lack of information on post-harvest handling of fig fruits has resulted in huge losses to the tune of 20 to 30 % to the farmers and traders thereby making the fig production uneconomical. In this context, an attempt is made to provide information for identifying a suitable packaging material that protects fresh figs against mechanical injuries during post-harvest handling, transportation and storage.

Onion (Allium cepa L.) is one of the most widely grown vegetable in Pakistan and a means to earn valuable foreign exchange for the country. Microbial spoilage of onion is a major cause resulting in post harvest loss every year. In the present study, gamma radiation treatment was used to reduce the pathogenic microflora of Allium cepa L. hence increasing post harvest storage life. The major exported onion variety of Punjab (Desi Red) was selected for the study. The onion bulbs were irradiated at the doses of 0.05, 0.10 and 0.15 kGy at PARAS Foods, Lahore. Then the comparison of microbial populations of onion was made between control and irradiated samples. The impact of radiation dose on weight loss and organoleptic qualities of onion was also evaluated. The results revealed that gamma irradiation significantly affected bioburden, weight loss and organoleptic properties. Onion bulbs irradiated at the dose of 0.15 kGy showed minimum weight loss, reduced microbial load and preservation of organoleptic qualities of onions.

On the heels of ethnic conflict in the former Yugoslavia, the international community created a free market space in Bosnia known as the Arizona Market. The Arizona Market was an attempt at post-conflict reconstruction via neo-liberal reform, but it gained notoriety for its active trade in sexual services, with UN peacekeepers becoming clients of ‘trafficked’ women. This dissertation forwards a feminist critique of the reconstruction effort, and argues that an ideologically-rooted focus on free market reform resulted in a decontextualized approach to the rebuilding of Bosnia. The pitfalls of this approach are evident in the international community’s regulation of ‘trafficking’ in the Arizona Market, which overlooked the complexities of ‘transactional sex’ in this space. This dissertation is not prescriptive. Nevertheless, by focusing on women’s autonomy, and on the social contingencies of ‘peacekeeping masculinity’, it enriches an understanding of post-war sites, and thus contributes to a more comprehensive approach to their regulation.

International trade in high value perishables has grown enormously in the past few decades. In the developed world consumers now expect to be able to eat perishable produce from all parts of the world, and in most cases throughout the year. Perishable plant products are, however, susceptible to physical damage and often have a potential storage life of only a few days. Given their key importance in the world economy, Crop Post-Harvest Science and Technology: Perishables devotes itself to perishable produce, providing current and comprehensive knowledge on all the key factors affecting post-harvest quality of fruits and vegetables. This volume focuses explicitly on the effects and causes of deterioration, as well as the many techniques and practices implemented to maintain quality though correct handling and storage. As highlighted throughout, regular losses caused by post-harvest spoilage of perishable products can be as much as 50%. A complete understanding, as provided by this excellent volume, is therefore vital in helping to reduce these losses by a significant percentage. Compiled by members of the world-renowned Natural Resources Institute at the United Kingdom's University of Greenwich, with contributions from experts around the world, this volume is an essential reference for all those working in the area. Researchers and upper-level students in food science, food technology, post-harvest science and technology, crop protection, applied biology and plant and agricultural sciences will benefit from this landmark publication. Libraries in all research establishments and universities where these subjects are studied and taught should ensure that they have several copies for their shelves.

Insect damage in stored food grains may amount to 10%-40% in countries where modern storage technologies have not been introduced. The loss of the olive crop due to the damage inflicted mainly by Dacus oleae (Insecta, diptera), range from 10 to 70%. According to FAO the loss annually by insects and rodent pests is 10 to 25% of world harvested food. In Pakistan, fruit flies cause a loss of around Rs.7 million annually. While according to another report, in Pakistan about 2 - 6% food grain production is lost every year during storage by stored grain insect pests. Similarly the total post harvest loss of wheat is about 7.37% out of which 3.24% was due to stored grain insect pests. Therefore, the control of these flies and other insect pests is an important health concern. Flies and mosquitoes (Dipterans species) constitute two major groups of nuisance species in rural and urban environments and remains a major source of illness and death worldwide. Mosquitoes alone transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually. This can be valuable book for agriculturist, planners and allied stalk holders.

Sapota [Manilkara achras (Mill.) Fosberg] is a tropical fruit crop grown for its delicious and sweet fruits. India is considered to be the largest producer of the sapota in the world. Sapota is highly perishable in nature and cannot be stored at ambient temperature for longer period. Therefore, fruit need to be disposed off as early as possible after harvest. Thus the Inadequate post harvest management practices and poor shelf life lead to enormous losses. It is therefore necessary to convert the sapota fruit in to processed products to avoid post harvest losses and get value added product. However, in recent years the increasing consumer awareness has emphasized the need for functional beverages which provide a health benefit beyond energy and essential nutrients. Therefore, such product will also help to generate employment opportunities

Nowadays, the application of Medium Voltage (MV) drives has grown due to the increasing demand of high efficiency and energy saving in industry, traction, power generation, power transmission, and distribution. Among the MV multilevel converters available on the market, the Three-Level Neutral Point Clamped Voltage Source Converter (3L-NPC VSC) has emerged as one of the most important topologies. One important disadvantage of this topology is the unequal power loss distribution and consequently, an unsymmetrical junction temperature distribution. In order to ensure that the most stressed power switches do not exceed the maximal allowable junction temperature, the converter output power and switching frequency have to be limited. To overcome this drawback, the Three-Level Active Neutral Point Clamped Voltage Source Converter (3L-ANPC VSC) was developed.There are two different loss balancing methods evaluated in this work: the already known Active Loss Balancing (ALB) method and a new method, the predictive active loss balancing (PALB) method. The use of the balancing methods applied to the 3L-ANPC VSC present outstanding results in all critical operation points as compared to the performance of the 3L-NPC VSC. Thus, the phase current and the output power range can be increased without exceeding the thermal limitation of the semiconductors. Furthermore, the loss balancing methods reduce the junction temperature ripple and consequently, the thermo-dynamical stress of the semicon...

Essays in Post-Critical Philosophy of Technology

Technology, in all its forms, has had and continues to have an indisputable impact on society and culture. Philosophy of technology seeks to understand this impact and the meaning of technology for society and culture. Although its origins can be traced back to the Greeks, it wasn’t until the late 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century that it gained ground as a philosophical discipline. Now more than ever it is considered an essential philosophical enterprise. ‘The Budapest Workshop on Philosophy of Technology’ was a lively and successful event that sort to discuss, reflect on and apply this branch of philosophical inquiry to both historical and contemporary examples. Importantly, the contributors’ methodological approaches were influenced by, although not limited to, Michael Polanyi’s term ‘post-critical’. Moving beyond the rigidity of past approaches, the selected essays were driven by two lines of inquiry, what has been the historical role of technology in social and scientific change? And, how can a ‘post-critical’ approach enhance and extend our understanding of philosophy of technology?This edited volume begins by exploring the role of technology in social and scientific developments from a historical perspective, before moving towards a discussion of philosophy of technology from a ‘Post-Critical’ epistemic stance. Free from the constraints of previous methodologies, the third part of this work engages with the term ‘Post-Critical’ in its broadest sense. Th...

Following the commitment of an offense in the context of a relationship, an offender may be motivated to reduce the damage. We examined the motives an offender may have for seeking forgiveness, such as avoidance of punishment, public image concerns, emotional well-being, self-image, sense of fairness/justice, loss of relationship, loss or gain of power, and loss of ability to trust. We also examined which behaviors an offender might use following an offense. We asked 221 individuals to imagine themselves as an offender in hypothetical scenarios and to answer questions about how they would act in such a situation. We found six main areas that motivate individuals to take action: Concern about God, Damaged Self-worth Concerns, Justice Concerns, Impression Management Concerns, Affected Party and Others Concerns, and Relationship Concerns. In addition, we found that after having offended, individuals typically engage in four types of behaviors: Approach, Avoid, Deny and Hide, and Grovel. In this book we embark on an in-depth discussion of all of these motives and behaviors and explore how they are related to the severity of the offense and the offender's personality.

Summarizes the essential biosynthetic pathways for assembly of metal cofactor sites in functional metalloproteins Metalloprotein Active Site Assembly focuses on the processes that have evolved to orchestrate the assembly of metal cofactor sites in functional metalloproteins. It goes beyond the simple incorporation of single metal ions in a protein framework, and includes metal cluster assembly, metal-cofactor biosynthesis and insertion, and metal-based post-translational modifications of the protein environments that are necessary for function. Several examples of each of these areas have now been identified and studied; the current volume provides the current state-of-the-art understanding of the processes involved. An excellent companion to the earlier book in this series Metals in Cells—which discussed both the positive and negative effects of cellular interactions with metals—this comprehensive book provides a diverse sampling of what is known about metalloprotein active site assembly processes. It covers all major biological transition metal components (Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Mo), as well as the other inorganic components, metal-binding organic cofactors (e.g., heme, siroheme, cobalamin, molybdopterin), and post-translationally modified metal binding sites that make up the patchwork of evolved biological catalytic sites. The book compares and contrasts the biosynthetic assembly of active sites involving all biological metals. This has never been done before since it is a relatively new, fast-developing area of research. Metalloprotein Active Site Assembly is an ideal text for practitioners of inorganic biochemistry who are studying the biosynthetic pathways and gene clusters involved in active site assembly, and for inorganic chemists who want to apply the concepts learned to potential synthetic pathways to active site mimics.

The integration of physical and environmental sciences, combined with social, economic and political sciences, provide a unique resource, useful to policy experts, scientists, engineers and subject enthusiasts. By taking an interdisciplinary approach, water resources issues and impacts on the built environment are presented in the inventive and strategic setting of considering the constraints of delivering potable water to an ever-demanding society who, at the same time, are increasingly aware of living in an urban landscape where excessive surface water creates a flood threatened environment – hence, the need to portray a balance between ‘too little vs. too much’. This unique approach to the water resources debate presents a multifaceted collection of chapters that address the contemporary concomitant issues of water shortage and urban flooding and proffers solutions specifically for the built environment. The book is structured into three parts: the first part (Sections 2, 3 and 4) addresses management issues and solutions to minimise water shortages and provide water security for society; whilst the second part of the book (Sections 5 and 6) addresses management issues and solutions to control excessive rainfall and minimise flooding impacts. The third part (Section 7) contextualises the issues of the earlier sections within international case studies from the developing world.

The condition of hair loss is a topic of significant public interest, and understanding the pathophysiology and treatment of the different types of alopecia (hair loss) will surely have an impact on the men and women afflicted by this condition. Hair loss is a pervasive problem affecting both men and women, and it can have profound psychological effects on the afflicted. It is a problem in need of a solution. The author’s interest in the causes of hair-loss related issues surfaced twenty-five years ago, when he began to experience some hair thinning. In a search for a possible solution to ameliorate his thinning hair, the author began an empirical journey of discovery. He experimented with a myriad of balding prevention recommendations, which led to the creation of Hair Loss: Options for Restoration and Reversal. The objective of this book is to educate the consuming public about the effectiveness of the many available hair-loss treatment and restoration modalities. It is an important, comprehensive, and valuable tool for both men and women who are afflicted with hair-loss problems. It provides the reader with a historical perspective regarding hair-loss, as well as its causes, treatments, and promising future trends.

An experiment was conducted to assess the effect of nitrogen on commercial onion varieties for off season green production in sandy loam soils at Shukranagar Village Development Committee (V.D.C), Chitwan, Nepal, from July to November 2008. The field experiment was laid out in two factors factorial Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) with five levels of nitrogen (0, 40, 80, 120 and 160 kg ha-1) and two varieties (Agrifound Dark Red and Nasik-53) with 4 replications. Green onion yield was observed the highest (42.38 t ha-1) at 120 kg N ha-1 where as it was reduced to 40 t ha-1 at 160 kg N ha-1. The combination of 120 kg N ha-1 and Agrifound Dark Red produced the highest green yield (43.8 t ha-1). The highest post harvest loss (29.13 %) was recorded in the treatment of 160 kg N ha-1 after 6 days of harvest. Benefit cost ratio of AFDR at 120 kg N ha-1 (5.14) was the highest as compared to N-53 (4.46) at same level of N. Hence, off-season green onion could be a better source of income for Nepalese farmers.

Tall building frames that respond to large seismic ground motions tend to have significant spatial variability of damage over their height, often with a concentration of that damage in the lower stories. A new loss analysis approach is recommended in this book, that incorporates the effects of spatial distribution of earthquake induced damage to frame buildings. Moreover, the approach aims to discriminate between required repair and replacement damages. Suites of earthquakes and incremental dynamic analysis along with the commercial software SAP2000 are used to establish demands from which story damage and financial losses are computed directly and aggregated for the entire structure. Rigorous and simplified methods are developed that account for spatial distribution of different damage levels arising from individual story drifts.

A feasible asset allocation framework for the post 2008 financial world Asset allocation has long been a cornerstone of prudent investment management; however, traditional allocation plans failed investors miserably in 2008. Asset allocation still remains an essential part of the investment arena, and through a new approach, you'll discover how to make it work. In The New Science of Asset Allocation, authors Thomas Schneeweis, Garry Crowder, and Hossein Kazemi first explore the myths that plague this field then quickly move on to examine how the practice of asset allocation has failed in recent years. They then propose new allocation models that employ liquidity, transparency, and real risk controls across multiple asset classes. Outlines a new approach to asset allocation in a post-2008 world, where risk seems hidden The «great manager» problem is examined with solutions on how to capture manager alpha while limiting downside risk A complete case study is presented that allocates for beta and alpha Written by an experienced team of industry leaders and academic experts, The New Science of Asset Allocation explains how you can effectively apply this approach to a financial world that continues to change.

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 7,5, Erasmus University Rotterdam (Strategic Management), language: English, abstract: Recent changes in the market for private equity have led investors to shift their attention away from market beta and towards generating alpha through the exploration of growth opportunities. PE firms increasingly use active ownership to implement these new growth plans. Buy and build strategies have emerged as a feasible and lucrative strategy of active ownership. The add-on acquisitions required when pursuing this strategy and the need tocreate value through synergistic effects necessitate post-acquisition integration efforts. Despite its relevance, researchers in the field of strategic management and finance have paid little attention to buy and build strategies. Moreover, they have yet to bridge the findings by scholars and practitioners on post-acquisition integration and active ownership. This paper seeks to fill this gap by answering the research question of how PE firms contribute to the integration process and how they handle task and affective conflicts and exercise management control with regard to the cooperation between the PE firm and the managementof the portfolio company.Previous work has linked active ownership to capabilities and found that prior business experience is a strong predictor of active ownership, meaning a high level of contribution by th...

Written in Irv Yalom's inimitable story-telling style, Staring at the Sun is a profoundly encouraging approach to the universal issue of mortality. In this magisterial opus, capping a lifetime of work and personal experience, Dr. Yalom helps us recognize that the fear of death is at the heart of much of our anxiety. Such recognition is often catalyzed by an «awakening experience»—a dream, or loss (the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job or home), illness, trauma, or aging. Once we confront our own mortality, Dr. Yalom writes, we are inspired to rearrange our priorities, communicate more deeply with those we love, appreciate more keenly the beauty of life, and increase our willingness to take the risks necessary for personal fulfillment.

n modern polymer science a variety of polymerization methods for the direct synthesis of polymers bearing functional groups are known. However, there is still a large number of functional groups that may either completely prevent polymerization or lead to side reactions. Post-polymerization modification, also known as polymer-analogous modification, is an alternative approach to overcome these limitations. It is based on the polymerization of monomers with functional groups that are inert towards the polymerization conditions but allow a quantitative conversion in a subsequent reaction step yielding a broad range of other functional groups. Thus, diverse libraries of functional polymers with identical average degrees of polymerization but variable side chain functionality may easily be generated. Filling the gap for a book dealing with synthetic strategies and recent developments, this volume provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the field of post-polymerization modification. As such, the international team of expert authors covers a wide range of topics, including new synthetic techniques utilizing different reactive groups for post-polymerization modifications with examples ranging from modification of biomimetic and biological polymers to modification of surfaces. With its guidelines this is an indispensable and interdisciplinary reference for scientists working in both academic and industrial polymer research.

Trish Rankin Where.s the Veil.. A Widow.s Journey from Grief to Joy

1602 руб.
In times of loss, everyone experiences grief, whether from the loss of a marriage, the loss of a job, or the loss of a life. "In grief, you are not alone," we often say to comfort grieving loved ones. But tell that to the woman who feels like her world has just been turned inside out. During two inconceivably difficult weeks, author Trish Rankin's life radically morphs into something almost unrecognizable. Her husband dies of an inoperable brain tumor, and, simultaneously, their son suffers liver failure. To move forward together, both as partners and parents, on their "God adventure," Trish and Dr. David Rankin chose to use the techniques she had taught for years in grief programs. In this honest, heartbreaking memoir, Trish lifts the veil on loss. She stares lovingly into the face of what's real: the shock, the agony, the suffering, the hope, the re-emergence, and, eventually, the ability to rediscover joy. Once she finds the strength to lift that metaphorical veil, she realizes that, like the butterfly emerging from its cocoon, her loss is the gateway to an awakening-and perhaps to creating a full life once again. Woven within this inspiring grief journey are techniques to help others on their own path to healing. Trish Rankin's story is one of tragedy, deep struggle, and, ultimately, hope.

Packaging design is a powerful vehicle for making our lives friendlier, our planet greener and our businesses richer. It is an essential link between the producer and the customer, where it contributes to the positioning and presentation of a product; and on many occasions, the use of the product after purchase. What is missing is a compass that can guide practitioners in the right direction. This is particularly so in the field of packaging where the routes you take may contradict rather than contribute to sustainable development. Managing Packaging Design for Sustainable Development: A Compass for Strategic Directions emphasizes the need to rethink packaging system design, by presenting a strategic packaging design tool; a compass. The compass encourages you to go off-road, to develop and innovate, and to remake the packaging design solution that previously was best practice. Theory and practical applications are balanced by outlining the most crucial tenets of packaging design for sustainability and by illustrating wide range of real-life cases that will inspire and challenge the mindsets of those who apply the compass in packaging design related projects. This is a must-have book for designers, engineers, logisticians, marketers, supply chain professionals and other managers who seek guidance on sustainable solutions through packaging design.

Summarizes the essential biosynthetic pathways for assembly of metal cofactor sites in functional metalloproteins Metalloprotein Active Site Assembly focuses on the processes that have evolved to orchestrate the assembly of metal cofactor sites in functional metalloproteins. It goes beyond the simple incorporation of single metal ions in a protein framework, and includes metal cluster assembly, metal-cofactor biosynthesis and insertion, and metal-based post-translational modifications of the protein environments that are necessary for function. Several examples of each of these areas have now been identified and studied; the current volume provides the current state-of-the-art understanding of the processes involved. An excellent companion to the earlier book in this series Metals in Cells—which discussed both the positive and negative effects of cellular interactions with metals—this comprehensive book provides a diverse sampling of what is known about metalloprotein active site assembly processes. It covers all major biological transition metal components (Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Mo), as well as the other inorganic components, metal-binding organic cofactors (e.g., heme, siroheme, cobalamin, molybdopterin), and post-translationally modified metal binding sites that make up the patchwork of evolved biological catalytic sites. The book compares and contrasts the biosynthetic assembly of active sites involving all biological metals. This has never been done before since it is a relatively new, fast-developing area of research. Metalloprotein Active Site Assembly is an ideal text for practitioners of inorganic biochemistry who are studying the biosynthetic pathways and gene clusters involved in active site assembly, and for inorganic chemists who want to apply the concepts learned to potential synthetic pathways to active site mimics.
