The effects of ethanol on the brain are concentration dependent. Low concentrations (mM) intoxicate, while greater than 100 mM anaesthetize. Of most relevance to human alcohol addiction are mechanisms of intoxication. Previously, Caenorhabditis elegans has been employed in genetic screens to define effectors of intoxication. Here, we inform interpretation… (More)
Wood products manufacturers require an efficient recovery of product from lumber to remain profitable. A company's ability to obtain the best yield in lumber cut-up operations (i.e., the rough mill) varies according to the raw material, product, processing equipment, processing environment, and knowledge and skill of the rough mill's employees. This book… (More)

Endoscopy of both the upper and lower gastrointestinal tract remains one of the commonest procedures performed on patients. The common risk factors associated with this procedure are well known. However, some of the rarer complications are not known or are not considered in the immediate postprocedure time period when a patient experiences acute abdominal… (More)
The uptake of oxygen by blood is expressed experimentally as percentage saturation of blood against oxygen partial pressure. We wished to model the oxy-genation uptake at the molecular level as a discrete event computer simulation. It was necessary to experiment with the simulation to determine the number of events and their associated parameters. A simple… (More)
1. The apparent acid and basic dissociation constants were determined potentiometrically by the methods of hydrolysis and of titration for the following ampholytes: Glycocoll, glycylglycocoll, alanylglycocoll, valylglycocoll, leucylglycocoll, methylleucylglycocoll, phenylalanylglycocoll and glycylglycylglycocoll. The constants were also determined in the… (More)
