African horse sickness (AHS) is a lethal equine disease transmitted by Culicoides biting midges and caused by African horse sickness virus (AHSV). AHS is endemic to sub Saharan Africa, but devastating outbreaks have been recorded periodically outside this region. The perceived risk of an AHS outbreak occurring in Europe has increased following the frequent epidemics caused in ruminants by bluetongue virus, closely related to AHSV.Attenuated vaccines for AHS are considered unsuitable for use in non endemic countries due bio safety concerns.
This Thesis presents research undertaken to investigate the electro optical characterisation and optimisation of Thin Film Electroluminescent (TFEL) devices and Laterally Emitting Thin Film Electroluminescent (LETFEL) devices with respect to device lifetime and aging. Post deposition localised laser annealing as an alternative to thermal annealing has been previously described in the literature. The effects of laser annealing on various devices is investigated and described within this Thesis.
And yet every state in the United States continues to operate a state medical board that maintains precisely the very same state enforced medical monopoly that’s causing that state to go broke! It’s the medical board that makes sure doctors don’t recommend nutritional prevention of disease, for example. Any doctor that dares to tell patients that vitamin D can prevent cancer could be stripped of their license and booted out of the state medical system. This is true in Texas, California, Illinois and nearly everywhere else in America..
“I was so proud and so grateful to see him walk across that stage,” his mother said. “All that help I got to get him to that stage, as a single mother for so long. I was so blessed that he went in the right direction, and that he had that degree.”. Louis County Council tells investigator Elliott Davis that he doesn like the deal that would send 18 St. Louis County Police Officersto the City of St. Louis to patrol MetroLinkin the city.
This false color X ray of NWA 7635 shows the meteorite’s mineralogy mineral textures. O, olivine; P, plagioclase (maskelynite); C, clinopyroxene (augite). Chemical compositions: Fe (purple), Mg (green), Ca (blue), Ti (magenta), and S (yellow). The facts remain unsettled, and Ford testimony may not prevent Kavanaugh confirmation. But it was a powerful warning that wealth, status and a record of professional accomplishments were no longer enough to override credible allegations of sexual assault, no matter when they occurred. To young men, it was a message that drunken violence could shadow them all their lives.
