Clinical Laboratories: The Practical Application of a Theoretical Model for the Early Detection and Initial Response to a Covert Large-Scale Bio-Terror Assault with Anthrax Spores. By Leslie J. King, Ph.D.
eBook (PDF): $12.08
(1 Ratings)
In this study, the researcher performed a meta-analysis of published research articles containing keywords for the early detection and initial response to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax.... More > The meta-analysis results were used to formulate a model for the early detection and initial response for clinical laboratories. The research model was then compared to data collected from clinical laboratory administrators who took part in a semi-structured interview pertaining to the current clinical laboratory practices from various clinical laboratory settings in a Midwest city of approximately one million citizens. The research findings of this study resulted in identifying that the American public remains vulnerable to a large-scale covert attack with anthrax. This is because the traditional beliefs, standard operating procedures, and the need to make a profit dictate the clinical laboratory profession, not the increasing threat of a biological attack and the danger to the American public.< Less
Jackson and Josie: The Daydreaming Duo! By Michelle Cowthran et al.
Paperback: $19.99

The Josie and Jackson adventure series features eight-year-old twins who are complete opposites. Jackson, the serious brother, always brings his adventurous and independent sister, Josie back to... More > reality. She is always prepared to let her imagination go wild and take her brother on some interesting and exciting adventures. Jackson loves to partner with his sister on these excursions, but he does not want to get in trouble. Josie sometimes forgets that she has chores and assignments to get done, but her inquisitive way of disappearing to her fantasy world provides teachable moments for children. Jackson’s practical ways of getting them back on task reminds kids you can have fun, but you have to take care of your responsibilities first. This is a series that teaches children the importance of structure, responsibility, and hard work in achieving your wildest dreams. The series also includes questions to help children understand the story and make connections in their own lives.< Less

Dad is... By Robin Willison
Paperback: $8.14

This is a book for Dads who want to do the best they can for their children. It’s not a manual but a selection of ideas and reflections to help YOU think through how YOU take on this wonderful... More > but often scary responsibility. Thought-provoking, practical and at times ‘laugh-out loud’ funny, it’s a book that can easily be read in a couple of hours or one short chapter at a time. At its heart, being a Dad is about loving your children so this book is structured around one of the best known definitions of love, one you will have heard at nearly every wedding you’ve been to: Love is Patient, Love is Kind etc. But it gets a lot closer to home when you swap the word 'Love' for 'Dad'! Dad is… Whether you agree with what this book suggests or not, you’ll find the messages hard to ignore.< Less

The combination of seismic and vehicle live loadings on bridges is an important design consideration. There are well-established design provisions for how the individual loadings affect bridge... More > response: structural components that carry vertical live loads are designed to remain well within the linear-elastic range while lateral load carrying components are designed to yield under large seismic excitations. The weight of the bridge superstructure is taken in to account as dead load in structural analysis for seismic loads; however, the effects of additional mass and damping of live loads on the bridge deck are neglected. To improve the design of highway bridges for multi-hazard effects of seismic plus live load, many questions arise and are addressed in this project via numerical simulations of short span bridges. Further extensions of this research can be extended to long span bridges whose seismic response is more heavily influenced by vehicle mass on the bridge deck.< Less

OTREC-RR-11-08 By Peter Dusicka & Jeff Roberts
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Frequently traveled roads in Oregon are in seismically active areas. Many of our bridges were designed and built to lateral demands that were assumed to be less than the current expectation, due to... More > improved awareness of seismic hazard and enhanced understanding of the non-linear response of bridges. This vulnerability to earthquakes can result in not only immediate damage, but also in the potentially lingering economic impact of disrupted traffic and freight. Fragility curves were constructed assuming lognormal capacity and demand distributions. Probability of failure was determined for slight, moderate, extensive, and complete damage. Statistical values were compared to the median and dispersion values proposed by other researchers, and calculated using guidelines from the HAZUS Technical Manual. Older multiple-span bridges were found to be significantly more fragile than the models. Through this modeling and analysis, the relative fragility of the modeled typical 3-span and 5-span bridges was determined.< Less
