Hydroxylamine (NHOH) undergoes biotic and abiotic transformation processes in soil, producing nitrous oxide gas (NO(g)). Little is known about the magnitude of the abiotic chemical processes in the global N cycle, and the role of abiotic nitrification is still neglected in most current nitrogen trace gas studies. The abiotic fate of NHOH in soil systems is often focused on transition metals including manganese (Mn) and iron (Fe), and empirical correlations of nitrogen residual species includi…

We investigate computationally the role of Stone-Wales (SW) defects on the interfacial interactions among graphene, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and Nylon 6 using density functional theory (DFT) and the empirical force-field. Our first-principles DFT calculations were performed using the Quantum ESPRESSO electronic structure code with the highly accurate van der Waals functional (vdW-DF2). Both pristine and SW-defected carbon nanomaterials were investigated. The computed results show that the pre…

This research presents a new method to address the high cost of textbooks and learning resources. The method is called the Dynamic Hierarchical Learning Material and it consists of developing learning material in small sections. These sections can be dynamically put together in different ways to create learning material for different classes. By considering learning material at an institutional level, one can identify redundancies. Material can be created through the use of Creative Commons m…

Indoor mold due to water damage causes serious human respiratory disorders, and the remediation to homes, schools, and businesses is a major expense. Prevention of mold infestation of building materials would reduce health problems and building remediation costs. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) inhibit yeasts and a limited number of filamentous fungi. The purpose of this research was to determine the possible inhibitory activity of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) o…

The goal of the performed research was to investigate potentially improved UAV Wilderness Search and Rescue [] (WiSAR) search leg paths that attempt to maximize the weighted [](by terrain area) cumulative sum of Probability of Detections [](PODs) over segments of intervening terrain on consecutive search legs. Maximized POD values, as a consequence, increase the overall probability of success of a search. It is possible the application of the derived techniques can be extended and improved to…

Agricultural intensification has fragmented rangelands in the Great Plains, which has contributed to uniform and homogeneous landscapes and decreased biodiversity. Alternative land management practices involving fire-grazing interactions can help maintain biodiversity without affecting livestock productivity. A survey was designed to understand the factors that influence preferences among the general population towards grassland landscape heterogeneity. Given the ordinal nature of survey resp…

To establish an in vitro model that would mirror the in vivo corneal stromal environment in diabetes (DM) patients.Human corneal fibroblasts from Healthy (HCFs), Type 1DM (T1DM) and Type 2DM (T2DM) donors were isolated and cultured for 4 weeks with Vitamin C stimulation in order to allow for extracellular matrix (ECM) secretion and assembly.Our data indicated altered cellular morphology, increased cellular migration, increased ECM assembly, and severe mitochondrial damage in both T1DM and T2D…

Castor oil, produced from castor beans, has long been considered to be of important commercial value primarily for the manufacturing of soaps, lubricants, and coatings, among others. Global castor oil production is concentrated primarily in a small geographic region of Gujarat in Western India. This region is favorable due to its labor-intensive cultivation method and subtropical climate conditions. Entrepreneurs and castor processors in the United States and South America also cultivate cast…

is an important pathogen of cucurbits worldwide. Virulence factors of were investigated in regard to fungal growth and the production of cell wall-degrading enzymes, polygalacturonase (PG), pectate lyase (PL), pectin lyase (PNL), β-galactosidase (β-Gal) and cellulase (Cx). Virulence levels of five isolates were determined by the severity of inoculated cantaloupe fruit decay. The highly virulent isolates had more mycelial growth than the moderately virulent isolates in different media. PG acti…
