    Document Overview:
    Then came October 31 . The collapse of MF Global and the discovery that something in excess of $1 billion of customer segregated funds were unaccounted for in the final days before the MF Global bankruptcy filing shook the futures industry to its core. MF Global 's demise wasn't just about one firm's failure; this exposed systemic weaknesses in these regulations and laws governing the protection of customer funds held in all futures and options accounts at all firms.

    Document Overview:
    The opinion piece, "signed" by 16 scientists, argues the world does not need any wide-sweeping regulations, i.e., "drastic actions," to combat global warming. Citing an email from climate scientist Kevin Trenberth, one referred to as the "Climategate" email, as the definitive beacon of truth on the matter: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't."

    Document Overview:
    Research underway at Oklahoma State University, in collaboration with the USDA-ARS National Sedimentation Laboratory in Oxford, Mississippi, is investigating the role of groundwater in streambank erosion, both as an individual mechanism and when acting in conjunction with fluvial processes. To improve our ability to rehabilitate stream channels, tools are needed for stability analyses that are capable of considering site-specific bank failure processes such as seepage and soil pipes.

    Document Overview:
    [...] the stream was degraded in habitat value and stream function, and it posed a threat to the infrastructure of the high school campus on which the segment was located. [...] the project provides myriad opportunities for education and outreach of SARA staff, JISD students, and the community at large.

    Document Overview:
    Successful streambank protection seeks to manage stream evolutionary processes and prevent excessive sediment movement in the stream system, which would otherwise impair water quality and create stream stability problems upstream and downstream. The botanical gardens and IERES are located between two streams (Cow Creek and Stillwater Creek) that converge downstream of the 100 acre (40.5 ha) botanical garden site.

    Document Overview:
    Due to the variability of environmental data, decades-long data are needed to improve our understanding of fundamental processes and to develop and test models. Since research funding is typically available to monitor only a limited number of parameters over short periods, comprehensive, long-term hydrologie and water quality data are rare.

    From:ProQuest LLC

    Document Overview:
    Stream restoration has developed over the past two decades to include the following elements: ( 1 ) channel and floodplain morphology adjustment based on natural channel design principles, (2) in-stream rock and log structures to enhance habitats and channel stability, (3) streambank bioengineering to provide soil strength, and (4) native riparian vegetated corridors for long-term stream health. Background Our network of engineers, ecologists, and scientists is building on several decades of research and education at NCSU focused on water quality assessment, watershed management, nonpoint-source pollution control, and ecosystem processes to better understand and promote effective stream restoration.

    Document Overview:
    Streams are dynamic features of Earth's landscapes, and analyzing such systems requires a breadth of knowledge in multiple fields. Because of their unique training and background, ASABE members are at the forefront of understanding stream channel processes. [...] many other causes of impairments for which total maximum daily loads (TMDLs) have been developed in the United States are typically sediment bound.

    [...] the positive pressurization constantly pushes clean air out of the cab, which maintains a much cleaner and healthier environment for the operator. Because this positive pressurization is essential to maintaining the air quality in the operator's environment, the RESPA-CF system includes a real-time pressure monitor.

    Document Overview:
    Fermentation experiments were initially targeted at four common sodas (Pepsi, Coke, Mountain Dew, and Sprite) representing different preservatives, varying levels of caffeine, and different colors. Most soft drinks also contain other compounds, such as phosphoric acid, citric acid, caffeine, salt, preservatives, and added coloring, which may inhibit the fermentation process. Ironically, in the current environment, researchers go to great lengths to convert biomass feedstocks into sugar for biofuel production, yet in some processing industries, such as soda bottling, truckloads of liquid containing 1 1 to 15 percent sugar are literally being poured down the drain.

    Document Overview:
    [...] an organization that proposes a reduction in force must be careful not to disproportionately impact any group, lest they get hauled into court on a charge of disparate impact. There are questions leaders need to ask themselves, honestly and forthrightly: * How do prior organizational actions condition the expectations of various stakeholders? * Over time, what dependencies has the organization created that are difficult to either amend or relinquish? * How does the organization communicate its intentions and the reasons for those intentions? * How does the organization recognize, reward, and value the contributions of not just the brass, but also of rankand-file employees and front-line managers and supervisors?

    Document Overview:
    Within the 10 to 100 micron channels of these devices, fluid flow is dominated by surface tension and laminar effects. Since biofilm processes are initiated in confined microscopic spaces, and the size of bacterial cells is on the micron scale, microfluidic systems provide major advantages in studying biofilms.
