  • Looks like text messages take longer to comprehend than send 

    Mayberry, Lisa; Scott-Brown, Kenneth C. (Pion, 2009)
    Keeble and Hazel (2004 Perception 33 Supplement, 152) have assessed the extent to which punc- tuation can influence reading speed; but how does word construction itself influence the time taken to read prose? In particular, ...
  • Loss of thermodynamic spontaneity in methanogenic consortium with ammonia contents 

    Oh, Sungtaek; Martin, Alastair D. (Elsevier, 2014-05-01)
    Over 60% of the primary and secondary sludge produced in the UK is now processed by mesophilic anaerobic digestion in order to “stabilise” and extract bio-energy from the organic material. However inhibition and destruction ...
  • Louis Beam Jr. 

    Winter, Aaron (M. E. Sharpe, 2011)
  • Low oxygen affinity in reptilian hemoglobin D: prediction of residue interactions in Geochelone carbonaria HbD by homology modeling 

    Lutfullah, Ghosia; Khalil, Hilal S.; Amin, Farha; Azhar, Noreen (Springer, 2008-04)
    The homology model of hemoglobin D from Geochelone carbonaria, the red-footed tortoise was predicted using the 3D structure coordinates of Geochelone gigantea hemoglobin D as the template. The model was built using the ...
  • A low-cost, accurate method of producing large quantities of digitally filtered images 

    Scott-Brown, Kenneth C.; Jordan, Timothy R. (Psychonomic Society/Springer, 2000)
    We demonstrate how to produce complex image transformations of bitmap files for vision experiments using the Cogimatic Vision Starter Kit (VSK) library of mathematical routines along with Visual Basic, C++, or the Delphi ...
  • Luxury brands versus other brand categories 

    Kapareliotis, Ilias (John Wiley & Sons, 2010)
    Luxury brands are nowadays being incorporated into our everyday lives. They deal with different aspects of conscious and unconscious consumption, different cases of consumption, or different cases of demand. Luxury brands ...
  • Magical urbanism: Walter Benjamin and utopian realism in the film Ratcatcher 

    Law, Alex; Law, Jan (Brill Academic Publishers, 2002)
  • Magnesium and cell cycle control: an update. 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Karger, 1986)
    Accumulating evidence, from bacteria to human cells, points to a universal role for magnesium in controlling the cell cycle. In microorganisms, the co-ordinate sequence of events which culminate in biomass doubling and ...
  • Magnesium and the regulation of germ-tube formation in candida albicans 

    Walker, Graeme M.; Sullivan, Patrick A.; Shepherd, Maxwell G. (Society for General Microbiology., 1984)
    Candida albicans requires Mg2+ for germ-tube formation. Mg-deficient media, metal ion chelators and the ionophore A23187 inhibited germ-tube formation. Cell Mg content during exponential yeast-phase growth remained constant ...
  • Magnesium as a stress-protectant for industrial strains of saccharomyces cerevisiae 

    Walker, Graeme M. (American Society of Brewing Chemists, 1998-08)
    During brewery fermentations, individual yeast cells may be confronted with a variety of environmental stresses that impair yeast growth and fermentative metabolism. An understanding of the stress physiology of industrial ...
  • Magnesium ions and the control of the cell cycle in yeast 

    Walker, Graeme M.; Duffus, J. H. (Company of Biologists, 1980)
    A study has been made of the role of magnesium ions in cell division cycle control in the fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, and the budding yeast, Kluyveromyces fraglis. Synchronization of cell division in these ...
  • Magnesium, calcium and fermentative metabolism in wine yeasts 

    Birch, Rosslyn M.; Ciani, Maurizio; Walker, Graeme M. (Taylor & Francis, 2003-04)
    The bioavailability of certain metal ions in grape must has been shown to be an important factor in governing fermentation performance by wine yeasts. Elevating levels of external magnesium by supplementing growth media, ...
  • Magnesium-induced mitochondrial polymorphism and changes in respiratory metabolism in the fission yeast, schizosaccharomyces pombe 

    Walker, Graeme M. (Springer, 1982)
    The role of magnesium ions in controlling mitochondrial structure and function in the fission yeast, Schizosaccharomyces pombe, has been studied. Results show that in control cultures of S. pombe grown in the presence of ...
  • Magnesium-limited growth of Saccharomyces cerevisiae 

    Walker, Graeme M.; Maynard, A. Ian (Elsevier, 1996-05)
    The growth response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to magnesium limitation when propagated aerobically in batch culture under conditions of glucose repression was hyperbolic, thus indicating a Monod relationship. The saturation ...
  • The magnetic structure of surges in small-scale emerging flux regions 

    MacTaggart, David; Guglielmino, S. L.; Haynes, A. L.; Simitev, R.; Zuccarello, F. (EDP Sciences, 2015-03-13)
    Aims. We investigate the relationship between surges and magnetic reconnection during the emergence of small-scale active regions. In particular, to examine how the large-scale geometry of the magnetic field, shaped by ...
  • Maintenance outsourcing: issues and challenges 

    Murthy, D. N. P.; Jack, Nat; Kumar, U. (Springer, 2013)
    All products and systems are unreliable in the sense that they degrade and fail. Corrective maintenance (CM) restores a failed item to an operational state and effective preventive maintenance (PM) reduces the likelihood ...
  • Major project team learning: examining building information modelling
