Bioenergetics is the study of balance between energy supply and energy expenditure and requires an examination of physiological processes through which energy is transformed in living organisms.... More > Studies on the flow and allocation of energy in biological systems often have, as their ultimate goal, the construction of a budget describing the partitioning of energy within an individual or population. Such budgets are then used to make inference about physiology or ecology in particular explaining why an organism or population does what it is observed to do assuming that energy allocation is the overriding concern. Bioenergetic modelling is an alternative method for estimating feeding rates in a natural population. These models quantify the relationship between feeding rates and growth relative to temperature, body size and activity. Bioenergetic models have been applied to address ecological questions in a wide variety of taxa.< Less
Natural Products, Chemical Compounds, and Gene Targets for Weight Loss: Discoveries from Genetic Interactions By PharmTao.com (Editor)
eBook (PDF): $1.99
(1 Ratings)
Body weight is decided by the balance between food intake and energy expenditure. Some genes have been found to be important signal molecules in the cells and play crucial roles in the central... More > regulation of food intake, feeding behavior, and energy homeostasis. These genes are potential targets and biomarkers for the treatment of obesity and associated diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. Many natural products, such as extracts and compounds from fruits and herbs, have weight loss effects and can protect against high-fat-diet induced obesity. These natural products and compounds can be used in food ingredients, diet therapy, or drug components for the treatment of obesity. Recent scientific studies have elucidated the molecular mechanisms of these products. The weight loss effects of these products may be mediated through adjusting genes involved in energy homeostasis.

Pump User's Handbook: Life Extension, 3rd Edition By Heinz Bloch & Allan Budris
eBook (ePub): $99.99
Aimed at operating technicians, maintenance professionals, project engineers, reliability engineers and managers, with focus on how you can achieve consistently superior run lengths, low maintenance... More > expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability in all of your pump applications. The third edition includes updates on straight-pipe requirements upstream of pump suction nozzles, details on temporary suction strainers, control strategies, detailed explanations and fully illustrated coverage of all API seal plans in use today, and case studies in mechanical seal upgrading. The demonstrated vulnerability of traditional oil slinger rings is contrasted against the sound rationale of solid oil flinger discs widely used in Europe. Small-scale oil mist lubrication units are highlighted and new field-installed pump vibration limits tabulated. A large segment of the text gives details on combining pump maintenance with systematic upgrading.< Less
Pump User's Handbook: Life Extension, Fourth Edition By Heinz P. Bloch & Allan R. Budris
eBook (ePub): $99.99
Just published in its updated fourth edition, this highly regarded text explains in clear terms how and why the best-of-class pump users are consistently achieving superior run lengths, low... More > maintenance expenditures, and unexcelled safety and reliability. Written by practicing engineers whose working careers were marked by involvement in all facets of pumping technology, operation, assessment, upgrading and cost management, this book endeavors to describe in detail how you, too, can accomplish optimum pump performance and low life cycle cost. A new chapter on breaking the cycle of pump repairs examines the cost of failures and the defined operating range of pumps. The authors also explore mechanical issues, deviations from best available technology, and preventing problems with oil rings and constant level lubricators. Additional topics include bearing housing protector seals, best lube application practices, lubrication and bearing distress, and paying for value.< Less
HIIT Principles for High Intensity Interval Training for Fat Loss By Marc Megna
eBook (ePub): $2.99
High intensity interval training is a more superior method for fat loss than steady lower intensity steady state training. The reasoning behind this theory is two fold. First, high intensity interval... More > training is a more time effective method of expending energy, as well as more efficient at fat burning based on energy expenditure.< Less
