Replacing process water and nitrogen sources with biogas slurry during cellulosic ethanol production

Environmental issues, such as the fossil energy crisis, have resulted in increased public attention to use bioethanol as an alternative renewable energy. For ethanol production, water and nutrient consumption has become increasingly important factors being considered by the bioethanol industry as reducing the consumption of these resources would decrease the overall cost of...

MicroRNAs regulating cluster of differentiation 46 (CD46) in cardioembolic and non-cardioembolic stroke

Ischemic stroke is a major cause of mortality and morbidity globally. Among the ischemic stroke subtypes, cardioembolic stroke is with poor functional outcome (Modified Rankin score ≥ 2). Early diagnosis of cardioembolic stroke will prove beneficial. This study examined the microRNAs targeting cluster of differentiation 46 (CD46), a potential biomarker for cardioembolic stroke...

The analysis of fire losses and characteristics of residential fires based on investigation data in Selangor, 2012-2014

This is a research in progress where authors seek to investigate the factors of residential fires. As part of the research, this paper aims to analyse the fire problems faced by the community of Malaysia. Data regarding residential fires between 2012 and 2014 was collected from fire investigation reports prepared by the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department. Descriptive analysis is...

An integrated cognitive computing approach for systematic conceptual design

Conceptual design plays an important role in product life cycle, which requires engineers to use sound design theory, cross-disciplinary knowledge, and complex technical support to acquire design concepts. However, the lack of sufficient computational tools makes it difficult for designers to fully explore in the wide design solution spaces. Therefore, this paper proposes an...

Multi-actuated mechanism design considering structure flexibility using correlated performance reinforcing

Multi-actuated rigid-flexible dynamic system exists widely in precision machinery and electrical control fields. The performances, such as kinematic, dynamic, electrical, magnetic, and thermal performances, are correlated and difficult to trap precisely. Therefore, a multi-actuated mechanism design method considering structure flexibility using correlated performance reinforcing...

Multi-principle preventive maintenance: a design-oriented scheduling study for mechanical systems

Preventive maintenance (PM) is very important for the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of mechanical systems. This paper focuses on one of the most challenging tasks for PM: PM scheduling. Two basic principles are integrated to support the PM scheduling of mechanical systems: (1) the cost principle, and (2) the reliability principle. These two PM scheduling principles are...

A novel approach for parallel disassembly design based on a hybrid fuzzy-time model

This paper investigates the problem of parallel disassembly with the consideration of fuzziness. A novel approach is proposed based on optimized dispatching for parallel disassembly in which disassembly time is characterized by the fuzzy sets due to inevitable uncertainties. The proposed approach consists of three parts: in the first part, the fuzzy time-based dispatching...

Association between Diabetes and Risk of Aortic Dissection: A Case-Control Study in a Chinese Population

Background It is well-recognized that diabetes represents a powerful independent risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. However, very few studies have investigated the relationship between diabetes and risk of aortic dissection (AD). Aim The aim of this case-control study was to evaluate the association between diabetes and risk of AD in Chinese population. Methods A hospital...

Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Ameliorates Anxiety-Like Behavior and Impaired Sensorimotor Gating in a Rat Model of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Background Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) has been employed for decades as a non-pharmacologic treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Although a link has been suggested between PTSD and impaired sensorimotor gating (SG), studies assessing the effects of rTMS against PTSD or PTSD with impaired SG are scarce. Aim To assess the benefit of rTMS in a...

Engineered Zymomonas mobilis for salt tolerance using EZ-Tn5-based transposon insertion mutagenesis system

Background The cell growth and ethanol yield of Zymomonas mobilis may be detrimentally affected by salt stress frequently present in some biomass-based fermentation systems, leading to a decrease in the rate of sugar conversion to ethanol or other bioproducts. To address this problem, improving the salt tolerance of Z. mobilis is a desirable way. However, limited progress has...

Targeted DNA damage at individual telomeres disrupts their integrity and triggers cell death

Cellular DNA is organized into chromosomes and capped by a unique nucleoprotein structure, the telomere. Both oxidative stress and telomere shortening/dysfunction cause aging-related degenerative pathologies and increase cancer risk. However, a direct connection between oxidative damage to telomeric DNA, comprising <1% of the genome, and telomere dysfunction has not been...

Collisionless tool orientation smoothing above blade stream surface using NURBS envelope

In five-axis machining, tool orientation above a blade stream surface may lead to tool collision and a decrease in workpiece rigidity. Hence, collisionless tool orientation smoothing (TOS) becomes an important issue. On the basis of a constant scallop height tool path, the triangular facets in the faces, vertices format are constructed from cutter contact (CC) using the Voronoi...
