As a measure of cold hardiness, we tested the supercooling points or freezing temperatures of individual hemlock woolly adelgids (Adelges tsugae Annand) collected from 15 locations across the north to south range of the adelgid in eastern North America at different times during two winters. Adelgids from the northern interior locations with USDA hardiness(More)
Emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, an insect native to central Asia, was first detected in southeast Michigan in 2002, and has since killed millions of ash trees (Fraxinus spp.) in North America. The objectives of this study were to 1) determine an optimal sampling location on girdled ash trap trees for detection of A. planipennis larvae(More)

In order to reduce the risk of nosocomial infection during endoscopic procedures, a simple, safe and economical technique for disposal of contaminated guide-wires, tubes and catheters is described. A disposable glove, everted over a coiled wire or other endoscopic accessory, creates a pouch which then contains the contaminated object to be discarded. This(More)
The MAT21 project, funded by the British funding agency, EPSRC, aims to integrate microsystems and flip-chip technology into commercial contract high volume electronics manufacturing assembly lines. The technology is based on flip-chip applications and is viewed as a step towards advanced assembly and packaging processes for future MEMS technology markets.(More)
The Delmarva Peninsula is located on the East Coast of the United States, between the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean. Industrial farming in the Delmarva Peninsula leads to levels of nutrients, in particular nitrogen, which grossly exceed natural levels. Excess nitrogen reaches the freshwater streams of the peninsula, which then flows to the Chesapeake(More)
Effect of immune response on gene transfer to the lung via systemic administration of cationic lipidic vectors. Am.—Cationic lipid-mediated intravenous gene delivery shows promise in treating pulmonary diseases including lung tumor metastases, pulmonary hypertension, and acute respiratory distress syndrome. Nevertheless, clinical applications of cationic(More)
