Why do some room and pillar retreat panels encounter abnormal conditions? What factors deserve the most consideration during the planning and execution phases of mining and what can be done to mitigate those abnormal conditions when they are encountered? To help answer these questions, and to determine some of the relevant factors influencing the conditions of room and pillar (R & P) retreat mining entries, four consecutive R & P retreat panels were evaluated. This evaluation was intended to reinforce the influence of topographic changes, depth of cover, multiple-seam interactions, geological conditions, and mining geometry...

A series of four Zn(2+) metal-organic frameworks containing functionalised isophthalate linkers and 4,4'-bipyridine pillars have been prepared and characterised. Isophthalates which contain -OC3H2n+1 alkoxy side chains (with n = 1, 2 or 3) form frameworks with a 3D pillared-layer topology instead of the typical 2D layer topology of the renowned coordination polymers with an interdigitated structure (CIDs), which is found for shorter -OC2H5 side chains. The gas adsorption properties of the materials were analysed using N2, CO2 and O2 adsorption measurements at low temperatures...

Recently, more and more metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been directly used as anodic materials in lithium-ion batteries, but judicious design or choice of MOFs are still challenging for lack of structural-property knowledge. We proposed a pillared-layer strategy to achieve improved Li-storage performance. Four Mn(II) and Co(II) MOFs with mixed azide and carboxylate ligands were studied to illustrate the strategy. In these 3D MOFs, layers (1, 3 and 4) or chains (2) with short bridges are linked by long organic spacers...

Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are multiple stakeholder partnerships designed to improve research efficacy. We focus on PPPs in the biomedical/pharmaceutical field, which emerged as a logical result of the open innovation model. Originally, a typical PPP was based on an academic and an industrial pillar, with governmental or other third party funding as an incentive. Over time, other players joined in, often health foundations, patient organizations, and regulatory scientists. This review discusses reasons for initiating a PPP, focusing on precompetitive research...

We report water vapor sorption studies on four primitive cubic, pcu, pillared square grid materials: SIFSIX-1-Cu, SIFSIX-2-Cu-i, SIFSIX-3-Ni, and SIFSIX-14-Cu-i. SIFSIX-1-Cu, SIFSIX-3-Ni, and SIFSIX-14-Cu-i were observed to exhibit negative water vapor adsorption at ca. 40% - 50% relative humidity (RH). The negative adsorption is attributed to a water-induced phase transformation from a porous pcu topology to non-porous sql and sql-c* topologies. Whereas the phase transformation of SIFSIX-1-Cu was found to be irreversible, SIFSIX-3-Ni could be regenerated by heating and can therefore be recycled...

Sustainability comprises three pillars of social, environmental, and economic aspects. Petrochemical industry has a great inter-related complex impact on social and economic development of societies and adverse impact on almost all environmental aspects and resource depletion in many countries, which make sustainability a crucial issue for petrochemical industries. This study was conducted to propose components of sustainability considerations in management of petrochemical industries.A combination of exploratory study-to prepare a preliminary list of components of sustainable business in petrochemical industries based on review of literature and Delphi-to obtain experts' view on this preliminary list and provide a detailed list of components and sub-components that should be addressed to bring sustainability to petrochemical industries, were used...

The ubiquitous presence of plastics, an obvious consequence of their usefulness and low price, has turned them into a problem of environmental and safety concern. The new plastic economy, an initiative recently launched by the World Economic Forum and Ellen MacArthur Foundation, with analytical support from McKinsey & Company, promotes a change in the use of plastic worldwide around three main pillars: redesign, reusing and recycling. Recycled plastics, with the aim of extending their life spam, can be used to synthesize materials for analytical purposes...

Since the late 1970s, the field of evolutionary biology has undergone empirical and theoretical developments that have threaten the pillars of evolutionary theory. Some evolutionary biologists have recently argued that evolutionary biology is not experiencing a paradigm shift, but an expansion of the modern synthesis. Philosophers of biology focusing on scientific practices seem to agree with this pluralistic interpretation and have argued that evolutionary theory should rather be seen as an organized network of multiple problem agendas with diverse disciplinary contributors...

The not-for-profit issue has been debated in November 2016 in Paris; this issue is one of the four canonical pillars of ethical blood donation. It is intimately bound to benevolence though it is distinct, as not-for-profit calls for institutions while benevolence calls for individuals. It is indeed intended that voluntary blood donors do not benefit from their donation and are thus non-remunerated. Not-for-profit is essential since it refers to the public character of blood as a putative public resource aimed at being shared as a tribute of solidarity...

This article considers the role and the practices of spiritual care in hospices. While spiritual care was firmly established as one of the four pillars of practical hospice care alongside medical, psychological and social care by Cicely Saunders, the importance and functions of spiritual care in daily practice remain arguable. When speaking about spirituality, what are we actually speaking about? What form do the spiritual relations take between full-time staff and volunteers on the one hand, and the patients and their family members on the other? These were central questions of a qualitative study that we carried out in four hospices in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, to explore how spiritual care is provided in hospices and what significance spirituality has in hospices...

The Berlin Declaration is a landmark call to action, which encourages policy makers to take early action to halt the type 2 diabetes epidemic. It emphasizes the need for prevention, early detection, early control, and early access to the right interventions. We believe these four pillars of early action in type 2 diabetes are as relevant to gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and action in the latter will impact on the former. Therefore this statement, authored by 21 experts from 14 countries calls for early action in GDM...

Despite the important role of social relationships for health and wellbeing, little is known about how primary partners affect adherence to HIV care and treatment. We qualitatively explored how relationship dynamics and partner support influence adherence among couples from KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Twenty-four heterosexual couples with at least one HIV-positive partner completed semi-structured interviews on topics including relationship dynamics (intimacy or emotional closeness, communication, violence), experiences with HIV care and treatment and HIV-related social support...

BACKGROUND: Doctors of Nursing Practice focus on leadership in evidence-based practice (EBP). EBP is influenced by one's beliefs in and implementation of EBP. Little is known to date about the EBP beliefs and implementation of Doctor of Nursing Practice students and outcomes of Doctor of Nursing Practice education. AIMS: Guided by the Advancing Research and Clinical practice through close Collaboration (ARCC) Model, the Evidence-Based Practice Beliefs (EBPB) and Implementation (EBPI) tools were used to assess the impact of EBP as a program pillar, curricular thread, and content area on EBPB and EBPI of Doctor of Nursing Practice-Family Nurse Practitioner students...

We present a new approach for retrieving halo-free phase contrast microscopy (hfPC) images by upgrading the conventional PC microscope with an external interferometric module, which generates sufficient data for reversing the halo artifact. Acquiring four independent intensity images, our approach first measures haloed phase maps of the sample. We solve for the halo-free sample transmission function by using a physical model of the image formation under partial spatial coherence. Using this halo-free sample transmission, we can numerically generate artifact-free PC images...

The syntheses, characterization, and emission properties of three tetragonal prismatic cages, 4a-4c, constructed from eight 90° Pt(II) acceptors, four linear dipyridyl ligands, and two tetraphenylethene (TPE)-based sodium benzoate ligands, are described. These cages are emissive in dilute solutions due to the metal-coordination-induced partial restriction of intramolecular rotation of their TPE units, while the dipyridyl moieties, which act as the pillars as well as the solvents, strongly influence these emissions...

Co-processing in cement kiln achieves effective utilization of the material and energy value present in the wastes, thereby conserving the natural resources by reducing the use of virgin material. In India, a number of multifolded initiatives have been taken that take into account the potential and volume of waste generation. This paper studies the factors which might influence the sustainability of co-processing of waste in cement kilns as a business model, considering the issues and challenges in the supply chain framework in India in view of the four canonical pillars of sustainability...

Forensic entomology is a branch of forensic science in which insects are used as evidence in legal investigations relating to humans, domestic animals and wildlife. One of the theoretical pillars on which the discipline is based concerns the fact that flies colonize a body after death. However in cases of myiasis, maggots are present before death, with consequences in the correct estimation of the minimum postmortem interval (mPMI). We report here the case of a woman, largely colonized by fly larvae, who has lain alive in her garden for four days prior to being rescued...

Adult immunization rates are consistently suboptimal, exacting significant human and financial burden of preventable disease. Practice-level interventions to improve immunization rates have produced mixed results. The context of change critically affects implementation of evidence-based interventions. We conducted a randomized controlled cluster trial of the 4 Pillars Practice Transformation Program to increase adult vaccination rates in primary care practices and used qualitative methods to test intervention effects and understand practice characteristics associated with implementation success...
