From a sample of hadronic events, produced in e+e-collisions, ue have isolated semi-leptonic decays of heavy particles and used these to obtain a measurement for the bottom-quark lifetime of (1.8 2 0.6 + 0.4) X lo-l2 sec. According to the standard six quark model, the decay of the lowest-lying bottom-flavored hadrons is forbidden in the absence of mixing of(More)
We describe QSketcher, a new environment for composing music for film. The main focus is the support of early stages of the creative workflow, from idea conception through realization, rather than the order and synchronization of musical fragments with film. This paper describes the design process and rationale, the system, the user environment, and how(More)
Current approaches to environmental risk assessment of genetically modified (GM) plants are modelled on chemical risk assessment methods, which have a strong focus on toxicity. There are additional types of harms posed by plants that have been extensively studied by weed scientists and incorporated into weed risk assessment methods. Weed risk assessment(More)
Rosetting, the adhesion of Plasmodium falciparum-infected erythrocytes to uninfected erythrocytes, involves clonal variants of the parasite protein P. falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1 (PfEMP1) and soluble serum factors. While rosetting is a well-known phenotypic marker of parasites associated with severe malaria, the reason for this association(More)

This paper questions assumptions about the relationship between class formation, sustainability and patterns of consumption. The empirical elements of the research are based upon qualitative and quantitative time-series research into food self-provisioning and 'quiet sustainability' in post socialist Central and Eastern Europe (Poland and the Czech(More)

Australia’s gene technology regulation will be used to illustrate some key challenges researchers should consider in the interface between research and regulation. These challenges result from the variety of legal obligations as well as from the different viewpoints, motivations and assumptions of researchers and regulators. Australia’s gene technology(More)
