    Building Community Disaster Resilience Through Private–Public Collaboration

    Natural disasters—including hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and floods— caused over 220,000 deaths worldwide in the first half of 2010 and wreaked havoc on homes, buildings, and the environment. To withstand and recover from natural and human-caused disasters, it is essential that citizens and communities work together to anticipate threats, limit their effects, and rapidly restore functionality after a crisis.

    BIODIVERSITY ENRICHMENT IN A DIVERSE WORLD

    Wetlands are the ecotonal or transitional zones between terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems where the water table is usually at or near the surface of the land, which is covered by the shallow water (Mitsch & Gosselink, 1986). Due to these characteristics, wetlands provide opportunities for adaptations to different plant and animal species with high diversity of life-forms. Thus wetlands are among the most biologically diverse and...

    AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES – CONTRIBUTING FACTORS, SPECIFIC CASES OF AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES, AND STEM CELL AND OTHER THERAPIES

    Autoimmune disease represents a group of more than 60 different chronic autoimmune diseases that affect approximately 6% of the population. It is the third major category of illness in the United States and many industrialized countries, following heart disease and cancer. Autoimmune diseases arise when one’s immune system actively targets and destroys self tissue resulting in clinical disease. Common examples include Systemic Lupus...

    Antonino Zichichi. Perché io credo in Colui che ha fatto il mondo.

    E' opinione comune che le leggi dell'universo scoperte dalla scienza siano in conflitto con quelle imperscrutabili di Dio. La contrapposizione tra fede e scienza rappresenta uno dei dilemmi più laceranti del nostro tempo; un dramma che conobbe il suo primo, controverso atto con Galileo Galilei. In questo saggio appassionato, che si legge come un vibrante manifesto, Antonino Zichichi smentisce tale contrapposizione e la ribalta: "Non esiste...

    ADVANCES IN COMPUTATIONAL STABILITY ANALYSIS

    Currently, imperfection sensitive shell structures prone to buckling are designed according the NASA SP 8007 guideline using the conservative lower bound curve. This guideline dates from 1968, and the structural behaviour of composite material is not appropriately considered, in particular since the imperfection sensitivity and the buckling load of shells made of such materials depend on the lay-up design. This is not considered in the...

    CONGENITAL DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA – PRENATAL TO CHILDHOOD MANAGEMENT AND OUTCOMES

    Historians, scientists, and researchers have been fascinated by the diaphragm for many centuries. Homer first described Trojan War battle wounds with reference to the diaphragm in the 9th century B.C. From 500-430 B.C., Empedocles of Agrigentum was one of the first people to study the physiology of respiration. In this early period of medical knowledge, however, the purpose of the diaphragm bewildered scientists. Hippocrates observed the...
