Constructed wetlands are now accepted as an environmentally friendly means of wastewater treatment however, their effectiveness can be limited by excessive clogging of the pores within the gravel matrix, making this an important parameter to monitor. It has previously been shown that the clog state can be characterised using magnetic resonance (MR) relaxation parameters with permanent magnet based sensors. One challenge with taking MR measurements over a time scale on the order of years is that seasonal temperature fluctuations will alter both the way that the sensor operates as well as the relaxation times recorded.
Settlement organizations and cultural associations across New Brunswick have partnered to translate health announcements into dozens of languages spoken by newcomers to Canada. Their largely volunteer backed effort has helped fill in the gap in COVID 19 information available in languages other than English and French. Details on health measures including physical distancing, mask use, testing and self isolation have been made available in about 30 languages, including Arabic, Punjabi, Mandarin, Somali, Spanish and Swahili.
Retracing complex population processes that precede extreme bottlenecks may be impossible using data from living individuals. The wisent (Bison bonasus), Europe’s largest terrestrial mammal, exemplifies such a population history, having gone extinct in the wild but subsequently restored by captive breeding efforts. Using low coverage genomic data from modern and historical individuals, we investigate population processes occurring before and after this extinction.
Launched in New York City on Valentine Day (a common breakup day) with a social media campaign that stresses strength, control, and taking ownership of one life, albeit with a touch of humor; it more empowering and optimistic than, say, angry or pitying. There are no calls to key a person car or throw clothes out of a balcony window.The company name reinforces the idea that a breakup can actually serve as an amazing opportunity to assert a new phase of your life, Meck says, adding that many people start companies after a breakup. Really can be a huge moment for professional and personal development.
Let me humor some of you for a minute. Suppose these events are something more than collective false memories. Does that actually have any real significance? Maybe we are shifting dimensions or some other grand event is taking place. The United Arab Emirates’ orbiter reaches Mars on Tuesday, followed less than 24 hours later by China’s orbiter rover combo. NASA’s rover, the cosmic caboose, will arrive on the scene a week later, on Feb. 18, to collect rocks for return to Earth a key step in determining whether life ever existed at Mars.
