Hawaii Lawmakers Vote To Decriminalize Marijuana Possession In Small Amounts

A bill to decriminalize possession under three grams has received final approval from the Senate and House, but advocates say the bill could still maintain stigma in the state.

Invitae’s latest acquisition is set to firmly entrench the genetics company in the non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS). The San Francisco-based company said it signed a definitive agreement to acquire Singular Bio for $55 million. Singular Bio specializes in developing single molecule detection technology that enables lower costs and expanded use of high-quality, cell-free, nucleic acid analysis, initially for application in NIPS. The acquisition is expected to close in the coming weeks, subject to customary closing conditions. Invitae noted the transaction will be cash neutral at close and has already...

Discussion A recent systematic review of house fires in high-income countries found that the risk factors for unintentional house fire incidents included: more children under 5 years of age, more people in the home, more males in the home, adults who are not working, low-income, household smokers, non-privately owned housing, poor condition housing. Other risk factors are not having smoke detectors, but more importantly not having a working smoke detector. Risk factors for injuries or fatalities is similar to the the risk factors for incidents but also includes people who are vulnerable such as a disabled resident, someon...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Biocatalysis and Agricultural BiotechnologyAuthor(s): Pham Anh Duc, P. Dharanipriya, Bharath Kumar Velmurugan, M. ShanmugavadivuAbstractGroundnut shells account for approximately 20% of the dried peanut pod by weight, meaning there is a significant amount of shell residual left after groundnut processing. Increased groundnut production leads to the accumulation of these groundnut shells which is not utilized, thus either burnt or buried. As Groundnut shells are rich in many functional compounds and composed of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin, it can be utilized in ...

Publication date: Available online 15 June 2019Source: Chemical Engineering Research and DesignAuthor(s): Mingchen Qin, Yong Dong, Lin Cui, Junwen Yao, Chunyuan MaAbstractThe efficiency of wet flue gas desulfurization (WFGD) used in thermal power plants that burn high-sulfur coal can be improved by adopting dual-loop spray tower (DLST). In this paper, the process of gas–liquid flow, mass transfer and chemical reaction in the DLST were fully investigated through a pilot-scale DLST and the corresponding numerical model. The numerical model was verified based on the experiment and applied to predict a DLST of 200&thinsp...

I forgot to index last week's entry, it was Exodus 9. Here's Exodus 10, which makes very clear what is really going on here.Then theLord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them2 that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my signs among them, and that you may know that I am theLord. ”Let's review, because this is important. Earlier we learned that God would harden Pharaoh's heart. Pharaoh was inclined  to let the Hebrews go early on ...

Abstract The discrepancy between concentrations and activities is a predicament well known to the analytical chemist. Because of the difficulty of determining activity coefficients, the standard technique for quantitative equilibrium studies is to work under a particular 'constant ionic strength' by adding an excess of an inert salt. Under such conditions, activity coefficients are approximately constant and can be taken into the equilibrium constants which are defined for the chosen ionic strength (I). Here we propose a fundamentally different approach. Throughout the numerical analysis of the titration data, act...

“Do you know what I’ve got here: a gun” – tales from the libraries front line. Photo: Marcus Rose   “I grew up a bookworm in Puerto Rico, where there are no public libraries,” Gabriella Houlgraves from Maidstone told UNISON local government delegates in Liverpool this morning. She asked them to imagine her joy when she came to the UK and discovered “a building full of more books than I could read in a lifetime” – which became even greater when she started working in the library service. But austerity cuts now mean that “we are now put at risk with lone workin...

I left a full-time academic position five years ago because I was literally, “check-all-the-boxes,” burned out. In looking back during that time prior to my decision to leave, I recall months of feeling overwhelmed, emotionally exhausted, depressed, and in a sense grieved for the loss of what I envisioned my career path to be until […]Find jobs at  Careers by KevinMD.com.  Search thousands of physician, PA, NP, and CRNA jobs now.  Learn more.
