The general expressions based on the Fermi distribution of the free charge carriers are applied for estimation of the transport characteristics in superconductors at the temperature well above the superconducting phase transition temperature TC. The Hall-effect experimental results in the
Food security: a post-modern perspective The paper explores post-modern currents in food security. It identifies three main shifts in thinking about food security since the World Food Conference of 1974: from the global and the national to the household and
The DSSAT cropping system model The decision support system for agrotechnology transfer (DSSAT) has been in use for the last 15 years by researchers worldwide. This package incorporates models of 16 different crops with software that facilitates the evaluation and application of
This paper analyzes and interprets the meaning construction of Chinese new idioms using a conceptual blending approach and discusses the results against the background of Chinese cultural context in order to gain a broader understanding of the phenomena. And this
Chronic kidney disease is one of the great challenges in daily life of veterinary doctors, and the lack of knowledge on this subject leads us to question on how we can generate early diagnoses and thus, more effective therapeutic treatments.
Increased expression and activity of matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) has been correlated with an increase in invasive potential and a worse prognosis in many cancers including melanomas. The antitumorigenic potential of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA) in melanomas was studied using the
Many natural and synthetic compounds like fungicides, plasticizers, phytoestrogens and xenoestrogens released into the aquatic environment from sewage discharges, agricultural runoffs and industrial effluents can lead to endocrine disruption in exposed species of fish. These endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) exert
Physico-chemical and operational properties of various gasoline bio-ethanol blends were evaluated. Bio-ethanol was obtained through distillation from maize (Zea mays), sugar cane (Saccharum L), raffia (Raffia vinefera) wine, and palm wine and then purified using a rotavapor. Engine trails involved
Tinospora cordifolia (Family: Minispermaceae), mainly found at tropical regions of India. It is widely used as a medicine in the Folk and Ayurvedic Systems. It possesses general adatogenic, rejuvenating and immunomodulatory activity and therefore, it is widely used in Ayurveda.
The adverse effects of climatic changes on agriculture have always been an issue of global concern. In the post COVID-19 crisis scenario, such issue related to food security will gain more importance, particularly after the lockdown period which has disrupted
