In the absence of direct epidemiological evidence, molecular evolutionary studies of primate lentiviruses provide the most definitive information about the origins of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 and HIV-2. Related lentiviruses have been found infecting numerous species of primates in sub-Saharan Africa. The only species naturally infected with(More)
Collaboration is used by the US National Security Council as a means to integrate inter-federal government agencies during planning and execution of common goals towards unified, national security.

This paper proposes a strategy to define a calculation methodology, readily available for any agent involved in the construction process. By means of this methodology we will be able to quantify and classify the construction waste generated when implementing buildings, and focuses on the dwelling sector, here referred to as Common Construction Model (CCM).(More)
Abstract: The effect of SO2 in the photooxidation of a mixture of anthropogenic precursors is studied. For that purpose, five experiments with a mixture of 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene, o-xylene, toluene and octane in the presence of HONO were carried out in the EUPHORE outdoor chamber by adding different initial SO2 concentrations in each experiment. The(More)
The organic fraction of secondary particles, commonly known as secondary organic aerosols (SOA), constitutes a significant part of fine aerosols. The formation of SOA is subject to complicated coupling among gas-phase chemical reactions, aqueous -phase, aerosol-phase, and meteorological processes. To correctly predict total particle concentrations in the(More)
