Comparing alcohol taxation throughout the European Union - Angus C, Holmes J, Meier PS.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: The World Health Organization recommends increasing alcohol taxes as a 'best-buy' approach to reducing alcohol consumption and improving population health. Alcohol may be taxed based on sales value, product volume or alcohol content; h...

ConclusionWithin the limitations of the study, GBR with or without autogenous block graft may be an effective approach in augmenting horizontally deficient mandibular or maxillary ridges, before the placement of dental implants. However, more complications may be seen with the use of an autogenous block graft related to the donor sites.

While recreational marijuana is legal in 11 states as of November 2019, more states gravitating toward legalizing the recreational use of the substance, and 33 states allowing medical marijuana, there’s apparently no stopping this trend. Cannabis, in the form of marijuana, hemp, and cannabidiol (CBD)  is being used for pain relief, to alleviate stress, cope with anxiety, and a number of other mental health disorders and addictions. Yet, there’s a dearth of clinical studies that have been conducted on the overall effects on a user’s health. Clearly, as Crain’s Detroit Business points out, more ...

The exhaustible character of the fossil resources linked to the increase of plastic residues in the environment encourages an intensive research on biorenewable and biodegradable polymers to synthesize new materials. Taking into account this current scenario, this work searches for new green routes to elaborate physical hydrogels...

Thus, we prepared a PVA-tetraethyl orthosilicate organic–inorganic hybrid membrane and modified the membrane by layer-by-layer deposition of a PVAm/silicotungstic acid polyelectrolyte for the pervaporation (PV) dehydration of ECH/IPA/water mixtures. In PV experi...

Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Journal of Environmental Chemical EngineeringAuthor(s): Wenying Xu, Haoyang GaoAbstractIn order to develop a low-cost NaClO/NiOx(OH)y process instead of Fenton method for treating refractory wastewater, a convenient bead-type hypochlorite conversion NiOx(OH)y catalyst was prepared by simply impregnating Ni-precursor over alumina and then oxidizing with persulfate (PS) in strong alkali solution. The influence of catalyst preparation conditions on the synthesis of NiOx(OH)y was studied. A series of batch experiments were carried out to verify the effective conversion...
