<p>This brief describes a novel approach to overcome the disadvantages of hemp fibres in cementitious composites. The authors describe how the new approach includes the combination of thermal pre-treatment of nanoclay (producing calcined nanoclay) and chemical pre-treatment of fibre surfaces to improve the microstructure, mechanical, physical and thermal properties and also durability of hemp fibre reinforced cement composites. In this work, the synthesis of several materials are studied: nanoclay-cement nanocomposite, calcined nanoclay-cement nanocomposite, untreated & treated hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite, hemp fabric-reinforced nanoclay-cement nanocomposite and treated hemp fabric-reinforced nanoclay-cement nanocomposite. The influence of nanoclay on properties of cement paste and hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite is also presented together with the influence of NaOH pre-treatment of fibre surfaces on properties of hemp fabric-reinforced cement composite.</p><br /><br />The authors have aimed this brief at those working on environmental-friendly, biodegradable, building materials.<p></p>

America at the Still Point, by Dave Masko. Thanks to Donald Trump’s executive order, all Internet privacy and health safeguards have been removed so that Silicon Valley rules over users. Trump signed this measure that “totally undermines safety for our privacy and physical safety,” says a longtime information technology professional sharing views for this special “new journalism” report with essays that expose tech’s dirty underbelly. While the Obama administration kept privacy protections in place to stop Internet service providers from both selling personal user data and exposing users to harmful EMF effects, Trump and the Republican controlled Congress approved legislation that removes all privacy rules and EMF health warnings. Trump’s odious act to boost Silicon Valley’s “Secret State” mind control over users means Internet service providers no longer need consent before they sell or share private user web browsing history and lots of other sensitive information such as smartphones and laptops emit toxic EMFs that cause brain and other cancers in users. While Trump likes to use “presidential optics” per the appearance of work as this madman “fake president” signs executive order after order without properly researching the impact of such things as removing protections against user data mining and exposure to EMFs online. The same is true when Trump revoked hundreds of other federal government guidelines that “specifically protect the citizen from corporate user data mining online; while removing EMF frequency danger data from the sale of smartphones and other digital devices that are known to cause cancer in users. This collection of “new journalism” essays thus becomes a reflection on what is, and what should never be in terms of an unregulated information technology industry that is now free to mine all personal data online; while also destroying young minds hooked into machine via exposure to brain cancer causing EMFs. Thus, the goal of this collection of new journalism essays is to explain why it’s worth unplugging from screens part of the day because the all-powerful information technology industry has planted “brain bugs” that need scratching that leads to digital drug addiction, post-human behavior and the likelihood of contracting brain or other cancers over time as a regular tech user, say medical and psychology experts.

<P>Today, engineering systems are an important element of the world economy and each year billions of dollars are spent to develop, manufacture, operate, and maintain various types of engineering systems around the globe. Many of these systems are highly sophisticated and contain millions of parts. For example, a Boeing jumbo 747 is made up of approximately 4.5 million parts including fasteners. Needless to say, reliability, safety, and maintenance of systems such as this have become more important than ever before.? Global competition and other factors are forcing manufacturers to produce highly reliable, safe, and maintainable engineering products. Therefore, there is a definite need for the reliability, safety, and maintenance professionals to work closely during design and other phases. </P><br /><P></P><I><br /><P>Engineering Systems Reliability, Safety, and Maintenance: An Integrated Approach</I> eliminates the need to consult many different and diverse sources in the hunt for the information required to design better engineering systems. </P>

Für viele BWL-Studenten stellt die Mathematikklausur eine erhebliche Hürde dar, für die oft mehrere Versuche nötig sind und an der viele sogar ganz scheitern und das BWL-Studium aufgeben müssen. Diese Aufgabensammlung, die zum großen Teil aus ehemaligen Klausuraufgaben der HWR Berlin besteht, kann helfen, diese Anforderung zu meistern. Es gibt zu Beginn jedes Kapitels ein komplett vorgerechnetes Einführungsbeispiel, das deutlich schwieriger ist als die ersten Aufgaben des Kapitels, aber ansonsten keine Darstellung der Theorie. Daher ist dieses Buch kein Ersatz für ein Lehrbuch, aber eine wertvolle Hilfe zur Klausurvorbereitung. Logisches Denken fällt manchem leicht, anderen sehr schwer, aber es ist erlernbar. Dazu gibt es einen ausführlichen Lösungsteil mit zahlreichen Hinweisen zu möglichen Fehlern. <br />Die Anregungen zu vielen Aufgaben stammen aus Nachrichten oder Wirtschaftssendungen verschiedener Medien (wie die Aufgabe zum Puppenkrieg zwischen Barbie und Bratz, die zu Preiserhöhungen für Milchprodukte, die Aufgaben zu Wohnungen für Flüchtlinge oder zu einem TV-Reisemagazin). Weitere Aufgaben gehen auf Studienarbeiten der dualen Studenten der HWR (z.B. die Aufgabe zum Personalcontrolling, Bahn versus HKX, die Aufgabe zur Verkaufsflächenoptimierung und zur Preissenkung von Medikamenten nach Auslaufen der Schutzfrist), die Probleme aus ihren Unternehmen eingebracht haben, zurück. Auch Erfahrungen aus dem täglichen Leben spiegeln sich hier wider. Neben dem Erlernen und Verstehen der Mathematik, kann der Leser damit auch einen Eindruck gewinnen, welche praktischen Probleme sich mit den verwendeten mathematischen Verfahren lösen lassen. Dabei wurden die Zusammenhänge stark vereinfacht und stark gerundete Koeffizienten genutzt, um möglichst ganzzahlige Ergebnisse zu erhalten. In den Beispielen aus ganz unterschiedlichen Sachgebieten und der Realitätsnähe liegt ein besonderer Reiz dieser Aufgabensammlung.

<!-- <description> --><p>Everyone is familiar with the amazing performance of a modern smartphone, powered by a billion-plus nanotransistors, each having an active region that is barely a few hundred atoms long. The same amazing technology has also led to a deeper understanding of the nature of current flow and heat dissipation on an atomic scale which is of broad relevance to the general problems of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics that pervade many different fields.</p><p>This book is based on a set of two online courses originally offered in 2012 on nanoHUB-U and more recently in 2015 on edX. In preparing the second edition the author decided to split it into parts A and B titled Basic Concepts and Quantum Transport respectively, along the lines of the two courses. A list of available video lectures corresponding to different sections of this volume is provided upfront.</p><p>To make these lectures accessible to anyone in any branch of science or engineering, the author assume very little background beyond linear algebra and differential equations. However, the author will be discussing advanced concepts that should be of interest even to specialists, who are encouraged to look at his earlier books for additional technical details.</p><!-- </description> --><br /><!-- <contents> --><br />
