As so often happens, a frantic mother called us about her 19-year-old daughter, who I’ll call Jen. A heroin addict, Jen had been shuttled between multiple treatment centers and sober homes by greedy marketers looking to cash in on the teenager’s insurance benefits by keeping her perpetually in recovery, but never sober. As our investigator searched Palm Beach County for Jen, her mother finally reached her by phone. She pleaded with her daughter to leave Florida, to which Jen replied, “Why would I come home? I have all I need here.” In the ensuing months, Jen has become a victim of a vicious cycle kn...

Conclusion Through relatively small amounts of grant support over the last 6 y, CRSCI has helped local public health agencies in sixteen states and two cities—whose combined population reaches half of the U.S. total—identify critical climate impacts and vulnerable populations. In the process, the program has helped to integrate health more fully into local climate change efforts. As a result of CRSCI support, these local public health agencies—the backbone of public health climate response capacity—have tools to enhance real-life adaptive capacity and increase the effectiveness of existing intervent...

The wail of the emergency siren reverberates across the school’s playing field, conjuring a primal fear even before the words “Missile launched! Missile launched!” crackle over the loudspeaker. Two dozen men, women and children—many wearing bonnets and wet neck towels against the blazing sunshine—scamper across the shingle expanse before squatting down low with arms covering heads. “We haven’t got a nuclear shelter or even strong buildings, so this is all we can do,” says Nakamura Takashi, an official of Sakura City in Japan’s central Tochigi Prefecture, who helped to o...

Publication date: Available online 20 September 2017 Source:Biochemical Engineering Journal Author(s): Q. Zheng, G.J.O. Martin, Y. Wu, S.E. Kentish We have previously shown that a combined system involving solvent absorption, membrane desorption and microalgal cultivation can provide an effective approach to carbon dioxide capture and utilisation (Energy Environ. Sci., 2016, 9, 1074). In this article, we evaluate aqueous solutions of monoethanolamine (MEA) and potassium glycinate (PG) for membrane desorption of CO2, and compare these with our previous work using potassium carbonate (K2CO3). Enhanced growth of Chlorella sp...

Publication date: Available online 19 September 2017 Source:Microchemical Journal Author(s): Sean Rawlinson, Anna McLister, Prosper Kanyong, James Davis The pain relief capabilities of salicylate are well established and a multitude of over the counter products populates pharmacy shelves. Over application of the preparations, through accidental or deliberate misuse, can all too often result in salicylate poisoning and, in severe cases, can be fatal. A novel detection strategy involving the quantification of the quinone byproducts arising from the electrochemical oxidation of salicylate is described. The approach has been ...
