Wavelet-based peak frequency, energy, mean frequency, spectral flatness and a new entropy measure were studied to predict shock outcome. Of these, the entropy measure provided optimal results with 60 ± 6% specificity at 91 ± 2% sensitivity achieved for the prediction of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC). These results represent a major improvement in shock prediction in human ventricular fibrillation.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0300 9572</dc:source><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:title>Improved prediction of defibrillation success for out-of-hospital VF cardiac arrest using Wavelet Transform Methods.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Watson, James N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Uchaipichata, Nopadol</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Addison, Paul</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Clegg, Gareth R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Robertson, C E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Eftestol, T</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Steen, P A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-12-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.resuscitation.2004.06.012</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

During this time over 20 permanent bridges have been built and eight have been load tested. The overall aim of this extensive research programme has been to develop structural uses for low-grade, UK-grown, timber and it has been shown that arches, using timber in compression, are an extremely effective technique for bridges. Timber structures have a very high sustainability value while being low cost and employing less early capital. These bridges on public roads can help increase public confidence in timber as a viable structural material. As part of a series of field and laboratory tests on SLTA bridges, a 20 m span arch bridge was designed and constructed at the Glentress Forestry Commission site near Peebles, in August 2004. The bridge has since been subjected to a series of extensive static and dynamic loads evaluating its response to crowd and vandal loadings. The results have confirmed predictions that the strength and stiffness of this type of construction was well beyond the strength normally expected from a slender timber structure. This paper details the construction and compares the analysis, design and load testing of the latest 20 m span full-scale SLTA test bridge at Glentress. The extensive testing programme, augmented by analytical work, aims to develop reliable design guidelines for arch structures using UK softwood.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1956/1/bren158-155.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Thomas Telford for ICE</dc:publisher><dc:source>14784637</dc:source><dc:subject>TG</dc:subject><dc:subject>TA</dc:subject><dc:title>Performance of a 20m span stress-laminated-timber arch bridge.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kermani, Abdy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Freedman, Geoffrey J H</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-12-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1680/bren.2005.158.4.155</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The authors argue that the analysis of training and development needs to be understood in the context of the employment relationship. Drawing on reasearch evidence from six case studies in the public sector, the article examines the impact of changes in work organisation on workplace learning, managers' and employees' own strategies towards it and the limitations of tools such as appraisal. Since employees' existing qualifications are poorly utilised and their development needs often frustrated, issues concerning job design, occupational progression routes and employee entitlements need to be addressed</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wiley</dc:publisher><dc:source>1748 8583</dc:source><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>LC5201</dc:subject><dc:title>Workplace learning and the employment relationship in the public sector.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Rainbird, Helen</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Munro, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-04-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1111/j.1748-8583.2003.tb00089.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Within this context, this paper focuses on issues of ownership and belonging and argues that there exists a link between the conceptual inconsistencies inherent in the World Heritage idea and the tensions between the national and the ‘universal’ evident at a number of World Heritage Sites. That is, heritage sites that are deemed to be of ‘outstanding universal value’ and are bestowed with the World Heritage accolade are consequently no longer expected to be perceived as symbols of particular national identities, but as heritage belonging to all humankind. This, of course, provokes a series of debates over the issues of ownership and belonging of such heritage, namely between the national and the ‘universal’ suggesting that it is possible to perceive World Heritage as synonymous with contested heritage. The paper explores these issues of ownership and focuses on the Acropolis, symbol of the World Heritage idea, as a case study utilising an exploratory semiotic analysis of the promotional material released by the Greek National Tourism Organisation over the last five years.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Routledge</dc:publisher><dc:source>1743-873X</dc:source><dc:subject>GV</dc:subject><dc:subject>JF</dc:subject><dc:title>World heritage: exploring the tension between the national and the universal.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Rakić, Tijana</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Chambers, Donna</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008-09-13</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.2167/jht056.0</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Earlier approaches centred on the competitive position of an organisation within its industry, with subsequent attention focused on an organisation's core competences. More recently, research has concentrated on knowledge and organisational learning. By reference to a study of airline-developed computer reservation systems (CRSs), this article explores the strategic importance of information in creating knowledge to generate superior performance. By examining developments in the use, management and control of information derived from CRSs, evidence is presented to explain how CRS-owning airlines have circumvented regulatory controls and increasingly competition to sustain competitive advantage through the development of their information and knowledge systems. This research demonstrates the need for organisations to develop 'knowledge facilitators' that foster the creation of new knowledge. Equally, managers must develop 'knowledge inhibitors' that help to sustain competitive advantage by limiting the abilities of competitors to create knowledge themselves.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Pergamon</dc:publisher><dc:source>0024-6301</dc:source><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>H1</dc:subject><dc:title>The role of knowledge facilitators and inhibitors: lessons from airline reservations systems.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stonehouse, George</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Pemberton, Jon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Barber, Claire E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2001-04-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0024-6301(01)00021-8</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This article, based on a recent interview with Michael Porter, assesses his contribution to the development of the discipline in the context of the advances that have taken place since the publication of his seminal work Competitive Strategy in 1980. The authors conclude that Porter has made major lasting contributions to strategy, increasing both its academic rigor and its accessibility to managers. The article and interview place Porter's work at the center of the development of strategic management in terms of the provision of practical analytical frameworks, transforming it into a recognized and recognizable field of academic study and management practice. This feat of transformation has not been equaled before or since, so that 25 years after his first seminal contribution, Porter's work continues to provide remarkable insights into the nature of competition and strategy.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1552-6542</dc:source><dc:subject>HD28</dc:subject><dc:title>Competitive advantage revisited: Michael Porter on strategy and competitiveness.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stonehouse, George</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Snowdon, B</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-09-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1177/1056492607306333</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

In 1994, about 10 percent of the total international visitors made a visit to an Australian winery, an increase of 20 percent on the 1993 figures.Some researchers seek to explore wine tourism as a form of consumer behaviour in which wine lovers and those interested in wine regions travel to preferred destinations. Key researchers, in this emerging field of wine tourism, have commented on the lack of published research material available regarding the behaviour and characteristics of the winery visitor or the tourist.This paper addresses these issues by suggesting a model possessing three dimensions; purpose of visit, general tourist motivation and relationship to other tourist activities. With this model, it is possible to locate specific tourist activities, and thereby have a better understanding of what constitutes 'wine tourism'. It also considers whether or not specific cultural and geographic differences may have an impact on the segmentation of the wine tourist.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Pergamon</dc:publisher><dc:source>0261 5177</dc:source><dc:subject>GV</dc:subject><dc:subject>H1</dc:subject><dc:title>Who is the wine tourist?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Charters, S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ali-Knight, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0261-5177(01)00079-6</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Focusing on one university with the largest number of international students (3946 onshore students in 2000) the study examines the intrastate travel behaviour and student perception of WA as a tourist destination. Both undergraduate and postgraduate international students were sent a self-administered questionnaire (296 usable responses were obtained) and this paper presents the findings about the travel experiences of these students while doing their studies in the state.

This paper proposes a new model for clustering non-stationary data based on a combination of salient features from the two metaphors. The resulting system embodies the important principles of both types of memory; it is self-organising, robust, scalable, dynamic and can perform anomaly detection, and is shown to be a more faithful model of the biological system than a standard SDM. The model is first applied to clustering static benchmark data-sets, and is shown to outperform another system based on immunological principles. It is then applied to clustering non-stationary data-sets with promising results. The system is also shown to be scalable therefore is of potential for clustering real-world data-sets.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1754/1/hart2t.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Kluwer Academic</dc:publisher><dc:source>1573 7632</dc:source><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Exploiting the analogy between the immune system and sparse distributed memory.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ross, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-12</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1023/A:1026191011609</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

A more interesting research question is how can a robot be provided with an architecture that would enable it to developmentally 'grow-up' and accomplish tasks by building on basic built-in capabilities. Previous work by the auhtors defined the requirements of a robot architecture that would enable this to happen. In this paper, we describe how some components of such an architecture can be achieved using an immune network model and we present preliminary results that show the plausibility of the suggested approach.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0302-9743</dc:source><dc:subject>QR180</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>A role for immunology in 'next generation' robots.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ross, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Webb, Andrew</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lawson, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-11-04</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/b12020</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

One technique for addressing this problem is to use additional internal states within a reinforcement learning system, in particular a learning classifier system. Previous research has shown that adding internal memory states can allow an animat within a cellular world to successfully navigate complex mazes. However, the technique has not previously been applied to robotic environments in which sensory data is noisy and somewhat unpredictable. We present results of using XCS with additional internal memory in the simulated Khepera environment, and show that control rules can be evolved to allow the robot to navigate a variety of problems.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0302-9743</dc:source><dc:subject>T1</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA75</dc:subject><dc:title>Controlling a simulated Khepera with an XCS classifier system with memory.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Webb, Andrew</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ross, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lawson, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-09-14</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

distance estimates and the MEC Questionnaire. The results indicate that in non-interactive photo-realistic environments the choice of arena has an impact on the perceived ability to undertake actions, and hence sense of place and presence; with the CAVE providing a lower sense of spatial presence for certain aspects than the HMD.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>PsychNology Journal</dc:publisher><dc:source>PsychNology Journal</dc:source><dc:subject>BF</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Responsive environments, place and presence.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>McCall, Roderick</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>O'Neill, Shaleph</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Carroll, Fiona</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Benyon, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Smyth, Michael</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

This is not surprising because reaction times are difficult to obtain manually, but it is a pity, because speed data should be indispensable in assessing the severity of language processing disorders and in evaluating the effects of treatment. This paper argues that reporting accuracy data without discussing speed of performance gives an incomplete and potentially misleading picture of any cognitive function. Moreover, in deciding how to treat, when to continue treatment and when to cease therapy, clinicians should have regard to both parameters: Speed and accuracy of performance. Crerar, Ellis and Dean (1996) reported a study in which the written sentence comprehension of 14 long-term agrammatic subjects was assessed and treated using a computer-based microworld. Some statistically significant and durable treatment effects were obtained after a short amount of focused therapy. Only accuracy data were reported in that (already long) paper, and interestingly, although it has been a widely read study, neither referees nor subsequent readers seemed to miss "the other side of the coin": How these participants compared with controls for their speed of processing and what effect treatment had on speed. This paper considers both aspects of the data and presents a tentative way of combining treatment effects on both accuracy and speed of performance in a single indicator. Looking at rehabilitation this way gives us a rather different perspective on which individuals benefited most from the intervention. It also demonstrates that while some subjects are capable of utilising metalinguistic skills to achieve normal accuracy scores even many years post-stroke, there is little prospect of reducing the time taken to within the normal range. Without considering speed of processing, the extent of this residual functional impairment can be overlooked.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Psychology Press, Taylor &amp; Francis Group</dc:publisher><dc:source>0960-2011</dc:source><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Aphasia rehabilitation and the strange neglect of speed.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Crerar, Alison</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09602010343000174</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

However, challenges remain within multiple hierarchy visualisation, and for taxonomic hierarchy visualisation in particular. Firstly, at present, there is no support for handling specific taxonomic information such as synonymy, with current visualisations matching solely on names. Synonymy is extremely important as it reflects expert opinion on the compatibility of data held in separate taxonomies, and is needed to produce an accurate picture of taxonomic overlap. Also, current techniques for exploring large hierarchies find it difficult to convey internal reorganisations between hierarchies, with most systems showing only addition, removal or wide-ranging fragmentation of information between taxonomies. Finding the source of changes that have occurred within an existing structure is currently only achievable through exhaustive drill-down exploration. This paper describes work that tackles these problems, incorporating synonymy information into a model for multiple hierarchy visualisation of large taxonomies, and also detailing techniques that aid navigation for discovering structural re-organisations between hierarchies and for revealing information about nodes that lie below the effective display resolution of the hierarchy layout.

It is estimated that a global saving in compressor fuel gas of 1% could prevent the production of 6 million tonnes of CO2, per year, [1]. Results of compressor model testing suggest that compressor speed can be estimated to within ± 2.5%. The neural network property of function approximation is used to predict compressor speed for given process constraints and instrument input sets. The effects of training set size, instrument noise, reduced input sets and extrapolation from the training domain, are quantified. Various neural network architectures and training schema were examined. The embedding of a neural network into an expert system is also discussed.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0791836010 CD of Proceedings</dc:source><dc:subject>TJ</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>A novel method for the performance control of a gas transmission compressor.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Pearson, W N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Armitage, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Henderson, Douglas</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-06-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The proposed algorithm produces a simplified mixed polarity Reed-Muller format from the conventional sum-of-products input based on a top-down strategy. The output format belongs to the most general class of AND/XOR forms, namely exclusive-OR sum-of-products. This method is further generalised to very large multiple output Boolean functions. The developed decomposition method is implemented in the C language and tested with MCNC and IWLS'93 benchmarks. Experimental results show that the decomposition method can produce much better results than Espresso for many test cases. This efficient method offers compact Reed-Muller programmable logic array implementations with the added advantage of easy testability, in contrast to the conventional programmable logic array realisations &#13;
&#13;
This publication made the use of Reed-Muller a practical proposition. Efficient decomposition for mixed polarity, the most complex form, was developed and extended to large multi-output circuits. Results obtained for benchmarks show significant improvement on previous work including the industry standard ESPRESSO tools.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>IEE</dc:publisher><dc:source>1350-2409</dc:source><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Optimisation of Reed-Muller PLA implementations.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wang, Lun Yao</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Almaini, A E A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-04</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1049/ip-cds:20020354</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

We describe the underlying technological basis of both methods and the tools we have developed to help in collection and analysis of the data. The desire to collect such data is driven by the need of modellers and simulation packages to use base data that is founded in valid empirical evidence, rather than some form of inspired supposition, as is the case with many of the current systems. In addition to the collection of speeds we are also interested in understanding and quantifying the ranges of distances people deviate from a straight-on path when confronted by some obstruction in front of them.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer</dc:publisher><dc:source>9783540258148</dc:source><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>A comparison of video and infrared based tracking of pedestrian movements.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kerridge, Jon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Kukla, Robert</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Willis, Alexandra</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Armitage, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Binnie, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lei, Lucy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:contributor>Hoogendoom, S P</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Luding, S</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Bovy, P H L</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Schreckenberg, Michael</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Wolf, D E</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Book chapter</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/3-540-28091-X_37</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Most published results show that the reduction of switching activity often trades with area penalty. Two cost functions are introduced and a genetic algorithm is used. to optimise the cost functions. Experimental results show a significant reduction of switching activity without area penalty or with smaller area penalty than previous publications.&#13;
&#13;
A novel approach is presented utilising genetic algorithms, based on the Darwinian principle of survival of the fittest, to find efficient state assignment that leads to significant saving in power without the usual silicon area penalty or with much reduced area depending on the designer's elicited criteria.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>IEE</dc:publisher><dc:source>1350 2387</dc:source><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Genetic algorithm based state assignment for power and area optimisation.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Xia, Yinshui</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Almaini, A E A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-07</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1049/ip-cdt:20020431</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

In 1999 the Scottish Office, United Kingdom, intimated that the Chief Nursing Officer would undertake a policy review of nurses’ contribution to improving the public's health. The importance of reviewing the scientific literature on the effectiveness of public health nursing was recognized as a crucial part of the policy review. A final report was expected within a 6-month period. The reason for the short time period was to fit the policy-making schedule. This paper discusses our literature review for this work.&#13;
&#13;
Aims. The aim was to conduct a review of the international scientific literature that gave the greatest coverage of the role and potential role of nurses in improving the public's health in relation to 14 major health topics. This paper describes the methods used, outlines the rationale underpinning the methods, discusses the problems encountered and offers solutions to some of these problems.&#13;
&#13;
Methods. The initial search for relevant scientific literature revealed 709 suitable primary papers. Reviewing this number was beyond the time limit set by the funding organization. Therefore, a decision was made to concentrate on the evidence contained in systematic reviews. Reviewing systematic reviews raises a number of methodological problems to which there are often no predetermined solutions, such as ensuring that important interventions are included, assessing the relevance and quality of the reviews, and grading the strength of the evidence.&#13;
&#13;
Discussion. Reviewing systematic reviews provides the scope to increase the number of topics that might be covered. However, it is possible that a number of interventions may be missed, particularly those that are not subject to review or those assessed using qualitative techniques. The definition of public health nursing used in the present study was also restrictive, and could be widened to include community interventions. Finally, assessing the quality of reviews and grading the evidence proved difficult and there is lack of consensus on how these tasks should be achieved. Nevertheless, the review presented policy makers with accessible information on a large number of relevant international studies.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Blackwell Synergy</dc:publisher><dc:source>1365-2648</dc:source><dc:subject>RT</dc:subject><dc:title>The effectiveness of public health nursing: the problems and solutions in carrying out a review of systematic reviews.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Elliott, Lawrie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Crombie, Iain K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Irvine, Linda</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cantrell, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Taylor, Julie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1046/j.1365-2648.2003.02873.x</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The review provides insight into the effectiveness of interventions that have been evaluated using moderately strong research designs. Most of the studies included are from the United States of America. Some interventions are effective in reducing drug use and associated problems while others have no or mixed effect. Those successful in reducing drug use include behavior therapy, Minnesota 12-step programs, residential care, and general drug treatment. Those with either no effect or mixed effect include schools interventions. Involving parents and other agencies may enhance an intervention's effect. There is a lack of good quality studies outside the USA. Future interventions should focus on either low- or high-risk groups of young drug users. Future research should be conducted on a wider range of services for young people and include non-medical outcomes such as communication skills, schooling, employment, family relations, and economic costs.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Libra Publishers</dc:publisher><dc:source>0001-8449</dc:source><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:subject>HN</dc:subject><dc:title>Secondary prevention interventions for young drug users: a systematic review of the evidence.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Elliott, Lawrie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Orr, Linda C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Jackson, Andrew</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Watson, Lynsey</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Outcome measures at baseline and six-months consisted of daily diazepam dose; reported illicit drug use; Severity of Dependence Scale;&#13;
Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale (HADS); Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. Fifty-three of 119 eligible patients agreed to be randomly allocated to the interventions. Those in the enhanced intervention reduced their daily dose of prescribed diazepam from a mean of 27.8mgs to 19.9mgs at six months (5.3% per month) compared with 29.8 mgs to 17.6mgs at six months (7.5%) among those in the limited intervention group. However, there was no statistically significant difference in the reduction&#13;
rate between the intervention groups. Approximately 75% of patients in each group suspended their reduction programme. The enhanced intervention group reported a statistically and clinically greater reduction in the mean HADS depression score (10.6 at baseline and 7.7 at follow-up), compared with a rise from 8.9 to 11.2 in the limited intervention group. In conclusion, it is possible to reduce prescribed diazepam among illicit drug users but not at the rate of 10% per month set by the study. The&#13;
difficulties of working with this population necessitate a flexible and possibly long-term approach to reducing prescribed benzodiazepines.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>0959-5236</dc:source><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:title>Reducing diazepam prescribing for illicit drug users: a randomised control study.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Elliott, Lawrie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Glenday, John</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Freeman, Laura</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ajeda, Dina</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Johnston, Brian</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Christie, Morag</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ogston, Simon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/09595230500125138</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

All countries recognize that health inequalities are caused by adverse socioeconomic and environmental circumstances. However they differ in their definitions of inequalities and in their approaches to tackling the problem. Sweden and Northern Ireland have structured their overall public health policy to tackle the underlying determinants of inequalities in health. England is the only country with a separate comprehensive policy. Most countries also have policies on poverty, social inclusion, and social justice. These are motivated by a concern for human rights and dignity and deal primarily with the underlying causes of health inequalities. While broadly setting the same overarching goal, policies on health inequalities show many different features. Policymakers face two challenges: to ensure that strategies to tackle the macroenvironmental factors&#13;
feature in policy on inequalities in health, and to ensure that health becomes a prominent issue in social justice policy. Few countries have a coordinated approach to tackling inequalities in health.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1572/1/E87934.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>World Health Organisation Regional Office for Europe</dc:publisher><dc:subject>RA0421</dc:subject><dc:subject>HV</dc:subject><dc:title>Closing the health inequalities gap: an international perspective.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Crombie, Iain K</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Irvine, Linda</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Elliott, Lawrie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Wallace, Hilary</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

&#13;
Methods Without preselection and regardless of family history, we recruited 870 patients under the age of 55 years soon after they received a diagnosis of colorectal cancer. We studied these patients for germ-line mutations in the DNA mismatch-repair genes MLH1, MSH2, and MSH6 and developed a two-stage model by multivariate logistic regression for the prediction of the presence of mutations in these genes. Stage 1 of the model incorporated only clinical variables; stage 2 comprised analysis of the tumor by immunohistochemical staining and tests for microsatellite instability. The model was validated in an independent population of patients. We analyzed 2938 patient-years of follow-up to determine whether genotype influenced survival. &#13;
&#13;
Results There were 38 mutations among the 870 participants (4 percent): 15 mutations in MLH1, 16 in MSH2, and 7 in MSH6. Carrier frequencies in men (6 percent) and women (3 percent) differed significantly (P&lt;0.04). The addition of immunohistochemical analysis in stage 2 of the model had a sensitivity of 62 percent and a positive predictive value of 80 percent. There were 35 mutations in the validation series of 155 patients (23 percent): 19 mutations in MLH1, 13 in MSH2, and 3 in MSH6. The performance of the model was robust among a wide range of cutoff probabilities and was superior to that of the Bethesda and Amsterdam criteria for hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer. Survival among carriers was not significantly different from that among noncarriers. &#13;
&#13;
Conclusions We devised and validated a method of identifying patients with colorectal cancer who are carriers of mutations in DNA repair genes. Survival was similar among carriers and noncarriers.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Massachusetts Medical Society</dc:publisher><dc:source>0028-4793</dc:source><dc:subject>R1</dc:subject><dc:subject>RC0254</dc:subject><dc:title>Identification and survival of carriers of mutations in DNA mis-match repair genes in colon cancer.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Barnetson, Rebecca A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Tenesa, Albert</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Farrington, Susan M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nicholl, Iain D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cetnarskyj, Roseanne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Porteous, Mary E</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Campbell, Harry</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Dunlop, Malcolm G</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-06-29</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The design was a prospective cohort study by interview and postal questionnaire. Primiparous women (n 541) aged between 16 and 40 years were approached in the Forth Park Maternity Hospital, Fife, Scotland. Of these, 526 women agreed to participate and seventy-eight were used as subjects in the pilot study. At 12 weeks we interviewed 338 women of the study sample. The postal questionnaire was returned by 286 of 448 volunteers. At 12 weeks 133 of 338 mothers said that they had introduced solids. Those that said that they had introduced solids early (&lt;12 weeks) were compared with those who had introduced solids late (&gt;12 weeks) by bivariate and multiple regression analysis. Psychosocial factors influencing the decision were measured with the main outcome measure being the time of introduction of solid food. The early introduction of solids was found to be associated with: the opinions of the infant's maternal grandmother; living in a deprived area; personal disagreement with the advice to wait until the baby was 4 months; lack of encouragement from friends to wait until the baby was 4 months; being in receipt of free samples of manufactured food. Answers to open-ended questions indicated that the early introduction appeared to be influenced by the mothers’ perceptions of the baby's needs. Some of the factors influencing a woman's decision to introduce solids are amenable to change, and these could be targeted in educational interventions.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Cambridge University Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>0007-1145</dc:source><dc:subject>RJ101</dc:subject><dc:subject>RJ</dc:subject><dc:title>What influences the timing of the introduction of solid food to infants?</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Alder, Elizabeth M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Williams, Fiona L R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Anderson, Annie S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Forsyth, Stewart</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>du V.

CRP was generally thought to be produced only by hepatocytes; however, several studies have shown extrahepatic synthesis of CRP. A previous study showed that PM10 and ultrafine carbon black (ufCB) were able to induce CRP expression in A549 cells. This study aims to examine the factors that lead to the production of CRP in A549 cells. A549 human lung epithelial cells were treated with cytokines (interleukin 6, tumor necrosis factor , interferon , or interleukin 1) or carbon particles (CB and ufCB) for 18 h. It was found that CRP could be expressed within the cells and that CRP was secreted from the cells particularly with tumor necrosis factor , CB and ufCB treatments. It was also found that this expression of CRP with CB and ufCB treatments was dependent on nuclear factor kappa B (NFB). The expression of CRP in A549 cells may indicate an important role for CRP expression and secretion from lung epithelial cells in response to inflammatory stimuli.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Informa Healthcare</dc:publisher><dc:source>1091-7691</dc:source><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:subject>QR</dc:subject><dc:title>Expression of C-reactive protein in human lung epithelial cells and up-regulation by cytokines and carbon particles.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ramage, Lindsay</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Proudfoot, Lorna</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Guy, Keith</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-08-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/08958370490464599</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Eight males performed 30 s of intense exercise at 120% of their maximal power output followed, 1 min later, by a performance cycle to exhaustion, again at 120% of maximal power output. Exercise was preceded by active, passive or no warm-up (control). Muscle temperature, immediately before exercise, was significantly elevated after active and passive warm-ups compared to the control condition (36.9 ±0.18°C, 36.8 ±0.18°C and 33.6 ±0.25°C respectively; mean ± sx ) ( P &lt; 0.05). Total oxygen consumption during the 30 s exercise bout was significantly greater in the active and passive warm-up trials than in the control trial (1017 ±22, 943 ±53 and 838 ±45 ml O 2 respectively). Active warm-up resulted in a blunted blood lactate response during high-intensity exercise compared to the passive and control trials (change = 5.53 ±0.52, 8.09 ±0.57 and 7.90 ±0.38 mmol· l -1 respectively) ( P &lt; 0.05). There was no difference in exercise time to exhaustion between the active, passive and control trials (43.9 ±4.1, 48.3 ±2.7 and 46.9 ±6.2 s respectively) ( P = 0.69). These results indicate that, although the mechanism by which muscle temperature is elevated influences certain metabolic responses during subsequent high-intensity exercise, cycling performance is not significantly affected.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Journal of Sports Sciences</dc:publisher><dc:source>0264-0414</dc:source><dc:subject>RC1200</dc:subject><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>Effects of active, passive or no warm-up on metabolism and performance during high-intensity exercise.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gray, Susan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nimmo, Myra A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2001-09-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/02640410152475829</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

&#13;
Methods: Six female subjects performed a 30-s sprint at 120% of their maximal power output on an electronically braked cycle ergometer 5 min after undertaking an active warm-up. To exclude any effect of muscle temperature (Tm) on metabolism, AW was compared with control (C), which involved passively heating the muscle to the same temperature as that achieved by active warm-up (37.1 +/- 0.3 vs 37.2 +/- 0.2[degrees]C AW and C, respectively).&#13;
&#13;
Results: Active warm-up significantly increased the concentration of acetylcarnitine from 4.5 +/- 1.5 mmol[middle dot]kg dry muscle (dm)-1 at rest to 9.4 +/- 1.6 mmol[middle dot]kg dm-1 before the onset of exercise. There was no change in acetylcarnitine concentration in C. During exercise the accumulation of muscle lactate was significantly less in AW compared with C (21.9 +/- 3.8 vs 34.3 +/- 2.3 mmol[middle dot]kg dm-1, respectively).&#13;
&#13;
Conclusion: The main finding of this study was that there was less accumulation of blood and muscle lactate during intense dynamic exercise preceded by active warm-up, which could not be accounted for by a difference in Tm between trials immediately before the onset of exercise</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Lippincott, Williams &amp; Wilkins</dc:publisher><dc:source>0195-9131</dc:source><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>Effect of active warm-up on metabolism prior to and during intense dynamic exercise.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gray, Susan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Vito, Giuseppe De</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nimmo, Myra A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-12-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1097/00005768-200212000-00034</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Seven male soccer players performed 2 exercise trials, 7 d apart. On each occasion, participants completed five 15-min periods of intermittent variable-speed running, interspersed with periods of walking (Part A), followed by an intermittent run to exhaustion (Part B). Participants consumed either a CHO gel or placebo (PLA) immediately before exercise (0.89 mL/kg body mass [BM]) and every 15 min thereafter (0.35 mL/kg BM). In addition, water was consumed at a rate of 5 mL/kg BM before and 2 mL/kg BM every 15 min during exercise. Blood glucose levels were higher (P &lt; 0.05) at 15, 30, and 60 min of exercise and at exhaustion in CHO than in PLA. During Part B, run time to exhaustion was longer (P &lt; 0.05) in the CHO trial (CHO 6.1 ± 1.3 min vs. PLA 4.2 ± 1.2 min). These results indicate that ingesting a CHO gel, along with water, improves performance after prolonged intermittent running in healthy male subjects, possibly by maintaining blood glucose levels during exercise.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Human Kinetics</dc:publisher><dc:source>1526-484X</dc:source><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>Carbohydrate-gel supplementation and endurance performance during intermittent high-intensity shuttle running</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Patterson, Stephen D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gray, Susan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-10-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Ten soldiers from each of the two units were recruited for this study (n = 20). All participants completed three tests while carrying a 20 kg backpack load: (1) a maximal treadmill test using the Bruce protocol; (2) a 2 mile backpack run test specific to Unit A on a consistently flat tarmac road; and (3) a 29 km time-trial over hilly terrain typical of a mountainous area used by Unit B for performance assessment. Heart rate, maximal blood lactate concentration and performance (run time) were assessed during all three tests, with peak oxygen uptake also being measured during the maximal treadmill test. Measurements of anthropometry, isokinetic strength and mental toughness (MT48) were also recorded. There were no significant differences in terms of performance markers between the units (P &gt; 0.05). Performance on the maximal treadmill test correlated with performance on the 2 mile backpack run test (r = -0.57) and 29 km time-trial (r = -0.66). Performance on the 2 mile backpack run test in turn correlated with 29 km time-trial performance (r = -0.77), accounting for 59% of the variance. In conclusion, the maximal treadmill test and the 2 mile backpack run test are useful indicators of performance on the arduous hill march and could be employed in the screening and selection of potential recruits.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Routledge</dc:publisher><dc:source>1466-447X</dc:source><dc:subject>QP</dc:subject><dc:title>Physiological variables and performance markers of serving soldiers from two “elite” units of the British Army.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Simpson, Richard J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Gray, Susan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Florida-James, Geraint</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/02640410500230811</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Here we show that the neuronal Ca2+ sensor hippocalcin binds the β2-adaptin subunit of the AP2 adaptor complex and that along with GluR2 these coimmunoprecipitate in a Ca2+-sensitive manner. Infusion of a truncated mutant of hippocalcin (HIP2-72) that lacks the Ca2+ binding domains prevents synaptically evoked LTD but has no effect on LTP. These data indicate that the AP2-hippocalcin complex acts as a Ca2+ sensor that couples NMDAR-dependent activation to regulated endocytosis of AMPARs during LTD.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0896-6273</dc:source><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:title>Hippocalcin functions as a calcium sensor in hippocampal LTD.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Palmer, Claire</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lim, Wonil</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hastie, Peter G R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Toward, Mark</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Korolchuk, Victor I</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Burbidge, Stephen A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Banting, George</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Collingridge, Graham L</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Isaac, John T R</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Henley, Jeremy M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-08-18</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.neuron.2005.06.014</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

They are responsible for the majority of fast excitatory synaptic transmission, and their overactivation is potently excitotoxic. Recent findings have implicated AMPARs in synapse formation and stabilization, and regulation of functional AMPARs is the principal mechanism underlying synaptic plasticity. Changes in AMPAR activity have been described in the pathology of numerous diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and epilepsy. Unsurprisingly, the developmental and activity-dependent changes in the functional synaptic expression of these receptors are under tight cellular regulation. The molecular and cellular mechanisms that control the postsynaptic insertion, arrangement, and lifetime of surface-expressed AMPARs are the subject of intense and widespread investigation. For example, there has been an explosion of information about proteins that interact with AMPAR subunits, and these interactors are beginning to provide real insight into the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the cell biology of AMPARs. As a result, there has been considerable progress in this field, and the aim of this review is to provide an account of the current state of knowledge.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics</dc:publisher><dc:source>0031-6997</dc:source><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:title>The molecular pharmacology and cell biology of alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptors.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Palmer, Claire</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Cotton, Lucy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Henley, Jeremy M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1124/pr.57.2.7</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The inhibition of DNA topoisomerases, particularly topoisomerase II (topo II) is now considered to be an important component in the mechanism of action of a large number of the most clinically active anticancer drugs presently available... &#13;
&#13;
By "derivatives" of the compounds of the invention, we include salts (acid or base addition), esters, amides, hydrazides and hydroxamic acids of the group B and other derivatives which do not diminish to an unacceptable extent the fundamental topoisomerase mediated activity, ie. anti-tumour properties of the compounds. Further preferred derivatives include those in which functional groups on the peptide group, which may be side groups or the terminal group, are capped. &#13;
&#13;
It is an object of this invention to provide improved clinically active anticancer agents preferably having one or more of the following properties: (i) reduced or eliminated capacity to induce generation of free radical species, (ii) reduced or eliminated capacity to bind to DNA or RNA, (iii) different relative activity against topoisomerases I, IIa and IIb (3 as compared to the known prior art compounds and (iv) activity, particularly being improved as compared to known compounds of this type, against drug resistant cell lines.&#13;
&#13;
Compounds demonstrate non-cross resistant activity against resistant cell lines ... have broad spectrum activity and shrink MAC15A tumours in vivo in test animals. Furthermore, initial screening in the NCI screen shows compounds of the invention to be cytotoxic against NCI-H460 (lung), MCF7 (breast) and SF-268 (CNS) tumour lines.&#13;
It should be noted that while many of the results presented relate to trifluoroacetic acid salts, corresponding salts, eg. acetates, have been found to have equivalent activities.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:relation>http://v3.espacenet.com/origdoc?DB=EPODOC&amp;IDX=WO9965866&amp;F=0&amp;RPN=EP1087935&amp;DOC=cca34af1985007c68444feba833be2b259</dc:relation><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:title>Anthracene derivatives as anti-cancer agents.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Mincher, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Turnbull, Agnes</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-08-18</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>other</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>EP1087935 B1</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The deduced protein sequence shares significant homology with HPr proteins from other low-GC gram-positive bacteria, although the highly conserved sequence surrounding the Ser-46 phosphorylation site is not well preserved in the clostridial protein. Nevertheless, the HPr was phosphorylated in an ATP-dependent manner in cell-free extracts of C. acetobutylicum. Furthermore, purified His-tagged HPr from Bacillus subtilis was also a substrate for the clostridial HPr kinase/phosphorylase. This phosphorylation reaction is a key step in the mechanism of carbon catabolite repression proposed to operate in B. subtilis and other low-GC gram-positive bacteria. Putative genes encoding the HPr kinase/phosphorylase and the other element of this model, namely the catabolite control protein CcpA, were identified from the C. acetobutylicum genome sequence, suggesting that a similar mechanism of carbon catabolite repression may operate in this industrially important organism.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>S.Karger AG</dc:publisher><dc:source>1464-1801</dc:source><dc:subject>TP</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH426</dc:subject><dc:title>Analysis of the elements of catabolite repression in Clostridium acetobutylicum.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tangney, Martin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Deutscher, J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Galinier, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mitchell, Wilfred J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-10-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1159/000073403</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Mean late winter concentrations of dissolved inorganic nitrogen (DIN as NO3− + NO2−), dissolved inorganic phosphate (DIP as PO43 −) and silica (Si as SiO2) in offshore near-surface waters are 8.3, 0.7 and 6.6 μM, respectively. Concentrations in inshore waters of the eastern Irish Sea can reach 57 μM DIN, 5 μM DIP and 17 μM Si. The northwards residual flow through the Irish Sea (≈ 5 km− 3 d− 1) is estimated to deliver ≈ 82 × 103 t DIN and 12 × 103 t DIP during the winter period. The annual freshwater inputs of DIN (including ammonium) and DIP are 123 and 9 × 103 t, respectively. Offshore waters of the western Irish Sea are enriched with DIN and DIP (≈ 3.0 and 0.4 μM, respectively) relative to Celtic Sea shelf break concentrations but salinity DIN relationships show that measured winter concentrations are lower than predicted. Denitrification is considered a key process limiting nitrogen enrichment of the Irish Sea.&#13;
&#13;
The onset and duration of the production season is controlled by the sub-surface light climate. Differences in depth and tidal mixing in the Irish Sea give rise to regional variation in the timing and length of the production season. Maximum spring bloom biomass in coastal and offshore waters of the western Irish Sea (23 and 16 mg chlorophyll m− 3, respectively) compares with values of up to 44 mg chlorophyll m− 3 in Liverpool Bay and elevated production and biomass in the latter is attributed to enrichment. There is no evidence that enrichment and changes in nutrient ratios have caused major shifts in phytoplankton composition in Liverpool Bay. Species of Phaeocystis are found throughout the region in most years and together with other microflagellates can dominate the spring bloom. Red tides of dinoflagellates are rare events in the Irish Sea but regular monitoring of phytoplankton in the vicinity of shellfish beds has revealed the presence of toxin-producing dinoflagellates in the Irish Sea.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1689/1/sea.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>1385 1101</dc:source><dc:subject>GE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:subject>GC</dc:subject><dc:title>The Irish Sea: nutrient status and phytoplankton.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gowen, Richard J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, B M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-07-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.seares.2005.02.003</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Both farms had been in production for over eight years, were of reasonably large size (&gt;100 MT) and located in low-energy environments. At one site, the benthic community was subjected to bulk sedimentation and organic enrichment and reduced macrobenthic infaunal diversity and elevated levels of organic carbon were recorded close to the farm. In general, effects were restricted to a radius of 40 m around the farm. Conversely, at the second site, there were no observed effects of mussel biodeposits on the benthos and a diverse macrobenthic community persisted. We propose that variations in the dispersion of biodeposits caused by local current patterns had a significant influence on the impact observed, and that this could also account for differences reported in other studies.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Oxford University Press</dc:publisher><dc:source>1054-3139</dc:source><dc:subject>GE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH301</dc:subject><dc:subject>GC</dc:subject><dc:title>The impact of biodeposits from suspended mussel (Mytilus edulis) culture on the surrounding surficial sediments.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Chamberlain, Jon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Fernandes, Teresa</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Read, P A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Nickell, T D</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Davies, I M</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2001-04-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1006/jmsc.2000.1037</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

We have investigated the uptake and metabolism of lactose, the major sugar in industrial whey waste, by C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824. Lactose is taken up via a phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP)-dependent phosphotransferase system (PTS) comprising both soluble and membrane-associated components, and the resulting phosphorylated derivative is hydrolysed by a phospho--galactosidase. These activities are induced during growth on lactose, but are absent in glucose-grown cells. Analysis of the C. acetobutylicum genome sequence identified a gene system, lacRFEG, encoding a transcriptional regulator of the DeoR family, IIA and IICB components of a lactose PTS, and phospho--galactosidase. During growth in medium containing both glucose and lactose, C. acetobutylicum exhibited a classical diauxic growth, and the lac operon was not expressed until glucose was exhausted from the medium. The presence upstream of lacR of a potential catabolite responsive element (cre) encompassing the transcriptional start site is indicative of the mechanism of carbon catabolite repression characteristic of low-GC Gram-positive bacteria. A pathway for the uptake and metabolism of lactose by this industrially important organism is proposed.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>American Society for Microbiology</dc:publisher><dc:source>0099 2240</dc:source><dc:subject>QR</dc:subject><dc:title>Analysis of the mechanism and regulation of lactose transport and metabolism in Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Yu, Yang</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Tangney, Martin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Aass, Hans C</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mitchell, Wilfred J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-03-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1128/AEM.02082-06</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Glucose phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP)-dependent phosphotransferase system (PTS) activity was detected in extracts prepared from cultures grown on glucose and extract fractionation revealed that both soluble and membrane components are required for activity. Glucose PTS activity was inhibited by the analogue methyl α-glucoside, indicating that the PTS enzyme II belongs to the glucose-glucoside (Glc) family of proteins. Consistent with this conclusion, labelled methyl α-glucoside was phosphorylated by PEP in cell-free extracts and this activity was inhibited by glucose. A single gene encoding a putative enzyme II of the glucose family, which we have designated glcG, was identified from the C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824 genome sequence. In common with certain other low-GC gram-positive bacteria, including Bacillus subtilis, the C. acetobutylicum glcG gene appears to be associated with a BglG-type regulator mechanism, as it is preceded by a transcription terminator that is partially overlapped by a typical ribonucleic antiterminator (RAT) sequence, and is downstream of an open reading frame that appears to encode a transcription antiterminator protein. This is the first report of a glucose transport mechanism in this industrially important organism.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer</dc:publisher><dc:source>1432 0614</dc:source><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QR</dc:subject><dc:title>Characterisation of a glucose phosphotransferase system in Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Tangney, Martin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mitchell, Wilfred J</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-02</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00253-006-0679-9</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

All deduced 5′ ends were confirmed by primer extension analysis. Three time classes of transcripts were observed. Early transcripts were identified in four different genome regions. One prominent early mRNA of 4.8 kb length covered a group of 12 genes located between the origin of replication and the cos-site. Two short early mRNAs represented a single gene from the direct vicinity of the cos-site and the superinfection immunity gene from the lysogeny module, respectively. A fourth early transcript covered a group of four genes located between the lysin and the integrase gene. Middle transcripts of 2.1 and 5.8 kb length covered cro-like and ant-like repressor genes and the DNA replication module, respectively. Four types of late transcripts were identified. The transcripts covered the likely DNA packaging genes, the head morphogenesis module plus the major tail gene, the remainder of the tail genes, and the putative tail fiber plus lysis genes, respectively. Only the transcript from the head morphogenesis genes yielded defined late mRNA species. The transcription map concurred with most of the in silico predictions for the genome organization of phage Sfi21 except for the separation of the DNA replication module from a possible transcription regulation module. Most 5′ ends of the transcripts determined in primer-extension experiments were not preceded by a consensus promoter sequence. The involvement of phage-encoded regulators for middle and late transcription was suggested by chloramphenicol-inhibition experiments.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1734/1/Foley%2C%20Ventura%20%282002%29%20-%20Virology.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0042-6822</dc:source><dc:subject>QR355</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH426</dc:subject><dc:title>Transcription mapping as a tool in phage genomics: the case of the temperate Streptococcus thermophilus phage Sfi21.</dc:title><dcterms:dateAccepted>2001-12-31</dcterms:dateAccepted><rioxxterms:author>Ventura, Marco</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Foley, Sophie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bruttin, Anne</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Chibani Chennoufi, Sandra</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Canchaya, Carlos</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Brüssow, Harald</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-04-25</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1006/viro.2001.1331</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Growth experiments revealed assimilation of radiolabelled N-acetylglucosamine in bacterial cell walls and in acetate, an end-product of central metabolism via the bifidobacterial d-fructose-6-phosphate shunt. While supplementation with fructose led to reduced N-acetyl-glucosamine assimilation via the d-fructose-6-phosphate shunt, no significant difference was observed in levels of radiolabelled N-acetylglucosamine incorporated into cell walls. Considering the central role played by glutamine fructose-6-phosphate transaminase (GlmS) in linking the biosynthetic pathway for N-acetylglucosamine to hexose metabolism, the GlmS of Bifidobacterium was characterized. The genes encoding the putative GlmS of B. longum DSM20219 and B. bifidum DSM20082 were cloned and sequenced. Bioinformatic analyses of the predicted proteins revealed 43% amino acid identity with the Escherichia coli GlmS, with conservation of key amino acids in the catalytic domain. The B. longum GlmS was over-produced as a histidine-tagged fusion protein. The purified C-terminal His-tagged GlmS possessed glutamine fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase activity as demonstrated by synthesis of glucosamine-6-phosphate from fructose-6-phosphate and glutamine. It also possesses an independent glutaminase activity, converting glutamine to glutamate in the absence of fructose-6-phosphate. This is of interest considering the apparently reduced coding potential in bifidobacteria for enzymes associated with glutamine metabolism.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1739/1/Foley%20et%20al%20-%20Bifidobacterium.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer</dc:publisher><dc:source>0302-8933</dc:source><dc:subject>QD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QH426</dc:subject><dc:subject>QR</dc:subject><dc:title>Characterisation of glutamine fructose-6-phosphate amidotransferase (EC 2.6.1.16) and N-acetylglucosamine metabolism in Bifidobacterium.</dc:title><dcterms:dateAccepted>2007-09-13</dcterms:dateAccepted><rioxxterms:author>Foley, Sophie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Stolarczyk, Emilie</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Mouni, Fadoua</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Brassart, Colette</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Vidal, Olivier</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Aissi, Eliane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bouquelet, Stéphane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Krzewinski, Frédéric</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2008</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00203-007-0307-9</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

However, for the most part, the implications of choosing a suitable matching rule and the likely effects on the algorithm from an engineering point of view have not been well studied. We develop a simulator that models an idiotypic network that can utilise a number of different shape-space models, which more faithfully model aspects of the real immune system. In each model, an antibody is considered to match any cell which lies within some volume v surrounding the point representation of the antibody (or its complement). The paper’s main contribution is to illustrate how the precise shape of the volume v influences both the dynamics of the resulting networks, and the connectivity of the networks. In particular, the shape of v radically affects the manner in which the entire shape-space can be segmented into tolerant and non-tolerant regions. This has significant bearing for the AIS-practitioner: choosing the correct model may make the difference between being able to find a successful solution to a problem or not.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Old City Publishing</dc:publisher><dc:source>1548-7199</dc:source><dc:subject>RM</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>The impact of the shape of antibody recognition regions on the emergence of idiotypic networks.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ross, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

Traditional techniques include direct observation, and analysis of recorded video footage. The Transport Research Institute at Napier University has been using recorded video footage to analyse pedestrian movements for some time. Recently we have started using infrared detectors to record trajectories. Although infrared imaging systems are normally very expensive, a recent commercial product has provided the possibility of low-cost imaging, albeit at low resolutions. The detectors are normally used to count people moving across a line, but we have been reading extra data from the detectors in order to extract complete pedestrian trajectories. Our preliminary studies show that the detectors are very efficient at gathering large amounts of trajectory data. We are also looking at using multiple detectors to cover larger areas. Preliminary results are encouraging, but there are some problems with matching targets as they move between the fields of view of adjacent detectors.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>CMS Press, University of Greenwich</dc:publisher><dc:source>9781904521082</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Measuring pedestrian trajectories with low cost infrared detectors: Preliminary results.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Armitage, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Binnie, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Kerridge, Jon</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Lei, Lucy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:contributor>Galea, E R</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Book chapter</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The assumption is often made that the chopped radiation varies sinusoidally. In practice, the radiation may have a square wave profile. This introduces high frequency harmonics that can distort the results of frequency measurements, particularly at low frequencies. Furthermore, the use of chopper wheels with different numbers of slots in order to cover different frequency ranges can introduce further effects. A simple change to the experimental set-up can produce a signal that has an approximately trapezoidal profile. Although not an ideal sine wave, we show that the trapezoidal modulation produces a much smaller error than for square wave modulation. In our case, the measurements are applied to the frequency response of pyroelectric infrared detectors, though the results are applicable to more general measurements on optical systems.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0263 2241</dc:source><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:title>Harmonic errors associated with the use of choppers in optical experiments.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Benjamin, Kenneth</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Armitage, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>South, R B</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-10-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.measurement.2006.02.008</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

When phage-resistant bacteria emerge, mutation may generate phage capable of exploiting and thus limiting population expansion among these emergent types. However, while mutation potentially generates beneficial variants, it also contributes to a genetic load of deleterious mutations. Here, we model the influence of varying phage mutation rate on the efficacy of phage therapy. All else being equal, phage types with historical mutation rates of approximately 0.1 deleterious mutations per genome per generation offer a reasonable balance between beneficial mutational diversity and deleterious mutational load. We determine that increasing phage inoculum density can undesirably increase the peak density of a mutant bacterial class by limiting the in situ production of mutant phage variants. For phage populations with minimal genetic load, engineering mutation rate increases beyond the mutation–selection balance optimum may provide even greater protection against emergent bacterial types, but only with very weak selective coefficients for de novo deleterious mutations (below 0.01). Increases to the mutation rate beyond the optimal value at mutation–selection balance may therefore prove generally undesirable.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0022-5193</dc:source><dc:subject>QR</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>How affinity influences tolerance in an idiotypic network.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bersini, Hugues</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Santos, Francisco</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-07-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jtbi.2007.07.019</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The participants were 18 university employees chosen for their varying degrees of room occupancy, from single occupants through to those sharing with up to 11 colleagues.  Participants in single rooms were expected to have greater control over their auditory environment than those who shared, and as such, the desire and opportunity to influence the soundscape could be studied, in both positive and negative terms. A key aim was to discover what terms individuals used when describing sounds, whether they were technical, musical or object-orientated.  &#13;
&#13;
Participants were interviewed individually, in their usual office environment, using a series of questions on a variety of topics such as the ideal working environment, and any desire to alter it, as well their experiences with auditory interfaces.  After the interview, participants were asked to listen to their auditory environment for 15 minutes and describe what they could hear. Following this, they were asked to classify each sound they had mentioned using a modified version of Macaulay and Crerar’s (1998) Soundscape Mapping Method. Subsequently the responses were combined onto a single diagrammatic map for ease of comparison.&#13;
&#13;
The interviews revealed how seldom descriptions of sounds go beyond object-orientated identifications, irrespective of the individual’s background, bearing out Ballas and Howard’s (1987) experiences when trying to elicit descriptions of environmental sounds.  A clear indication from this series of interviews is the reliance on the source when describing sound, as Metz (1985) states, when individuals are describing sounds they are “actually thinking of the visual image of the sound’s source”.  We discuss codes derived from the interview transcripts and revisions made to the soundscape mapping method as a result of our findings.</dc:description><dc:format>application/msword</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1831/1/2006MappingWorkplaceSoundscapes.doc</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>World Forum on Acoustic Ecology Conference</dc:source><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:subject>QC</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Mapping workplace soundscapes.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>McGregor, Iain</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Crerar, Alison</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Benyon, David</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>LePlâtre, Grégory</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-11-02</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

They can also take much longer than non-evolutionary methods. We&#13;
try to address these concerns by using an EA, in&#13;
particular the learning classifier system XCS, to&#13;
learn a solution process rather than to solve individual&#13;
problems. The process chooses one of various simple non-evolutionary heuristics to apply to each state of a problem, gradually transforming the problem from its initial state to a solved state. We test this on a large set of one dimensional bin packing problems. For some of&#13;
the problems, none of the heuristics used can find&#13;
an optimal answer; however, the evolved solution&#13;
process can find an optimal solution in over 78% of cases.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1558608788</dc:source><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Hyper-heuristics: learning to combine simple heuristics in bin-packing problems.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ross, Peter</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Schulenburg, Sonia</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Marin-Blazquez, Javier G</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Hart, Emma</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-07-09</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

combination of familiar, straightforward heuristics that performs very well across a whole range of problems. To be worthwhile, such a combination should outperform all of the constituent heuristics. In this paper we describe a novel messy-GA-based approach that learns such a heuris-&#13;
tic combination for solving one-dimensional bin-packing problems. When applied to a large set of benchmark problems, the learned procedure finds an optimal solution for nearly 80% of them, and for the rest produces an&#13;
answer very close to optimal.

This enables a comparison of the experiences. An analysis of the results reveals a similarity of reported experience, however the extremes experienced in the physical place were less pronounced in the virtual representation.

Korea provides a prime example of a nation that is implementing such policies. Also, its ports play a pivotal role in world shipping, particularly in the ever-burgeoning container market. The success of these policies in increasing the productive efficiency of Korean container terminals is assessed. The UK container terminal sector provides a useful benchmark for comparison since privatization and deregulation have formed an integral part of UK port reforms for nearly 20 years and the effect on efficiency, having had time to mature, will be much easier to gauge. The stochastic frontier model is justified as the chosen methodology for estimating productive efficiency levels and is applied to cross-sectional data under a variety of distributional assumptions. A panel data model is also estimated. Results are consistent and suggest (1) The degree of private sector involvement in sample container terminals is positively related to productive efficiency and (2) Improved productive efficiency has followed the implementation of privatization and deregulation policies within the Korean sector. Even though not categorical, these conclusions are important because the market for container throughput is internationally competitive and if policies which promote competition between Korean container terminals lead to greater productive efficiency, this will inevitably make the sector as a whole more competitive internationally.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1874/1/Cull03.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Routledge</dc:publisher><dc:source>1466 4283</dc:source><dc:subject>HF</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:title>A stochastic frontier model of the productive efficiency of Korean container terminals.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Cullinane, Kevin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Song, Dong-Wook</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-02-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/00036840210139355</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

This paper aims to evaluate the efficiency of the world’s most important container ports and terminals using the two alternative techniques of Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and the Free Disposal Hull (FDH) model. The results give an insight into the current efficiency ranking of the world’s major container ports and terminals. They also confirm expectations that the available mathematical programming methodologies lead to different results and that appropriate variable definition of input and output factors is a crucial element in meaningful applications of DEA and FDH. It is also concluded that the availability of panel data, rather than cross-sectional data would greatly improve the validity of the efficiency estimates derived from all the mathematical programming techniques applied.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1875/1/Cullinanejpa2005tf.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0895 562X</dc:source><dc:subject>HB</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:title>The application of mathematical programming approaches to estimating container port production.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Cullinane, Kevin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Song, Dong-Wook</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Wang, Tengfei</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-09-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s11123-005-3041-9</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The behaviour of pedestrian movements (especially in the areas off but adjacent to roads) requires improved tools to address the issues now being raised. Such behaviour and interactions can now be modelled by using a combination of massively parallel processes simulating individual pedestrians, and a series of behaviours of these simulated pedestrians in the interactions with each other and their environment. The PEDFLOW model has been implemented in the parallel processing language Occam as an agent-based evolutionary system, which allows extensive modelling of detailed pedestrian behaviour with minimal complication.

Since devolution in the UK, the opening of the new Scottish parliament in 1998 and the creation of the Scottish Executive, little effort has been made to establish a distinct maritime policy for Scotland. As was evident prior to devolution, the primary emphasis from any maritime policy perspective has continued to be a focus on lifeline island ferry services. This ignores significant developments in several other key maritime transport sectors, and this paper provides examples of areas that require some form of policy response, including intra-European short sea shipping, UK coastal shipping, urban/river transport and global container shipping. Long-standing institutional bias against maritime transport coupled with subsidy devoted almost entirely to land transport systems has resulted in a quite distorted marketplace. This suggests that a maritime policy is now imperative if maritime transport is to play a more significant role in the overall transport system. Further discussion centres on the need to consider, from a Scottish policy perspective, the role of various state-sponsored maritime service providers and how these bodies might fit better within evolving policy. The conclusion is that formulation of a maritime policy by the Scottish Executive is overdue and that a degree of restructuring of transport responsibilities within the Executive, combined with adequate resource allocation towards the maritime industry, will be necessary in order that market distortions can be overcome, so enabling Scotland to fully exploit the competitive and environmental advantages that maritime transport can provide.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1885/1/ABMARITIMEPOLICYINSCOTLAND.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Taylor &amp; Francis</dc:publisher><dc:source>1464 5254</dc:source><dc:subject>JN1187</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:title>Maritime policy in Scotland.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Baird, Alfred</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-10-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/03088830500300404</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

surrounding the vertical separation of infrastructure&#13;
from rail services with regard to passenger operations. A&#13;
case study of the British passenger railway privatisation&#13;
is used. The British approach to rail reform is unique in three aspects. Firstly, the extent of horizontal &#13;
separation of the former state owned railway, with the former monolithic state enterprise being divided into 104 individual autonomous units. Secondly, with only five years between the government white paper and full implementation of the revised structure, the time-frame over which these structural changes were implemented was very short. Thirdly, the extent of the involvement of the private enterprise in these reforms, with 96 of the autonomous units highlighted above transferred to the&#13;
private sector.&#13;
&#13;
The most significant finding is that the size of train operating companies matter. In any vertical separation of the railway therefore, consideration needs to be given to the size (and hence number) of the train service provider(s). Furthermore, it was suggested that all British TOCs were operating on the downward part of the average cost curve i.e. all were too small in terms of train&#13;
kilometre production. Therefore, one of the key areas for&#13;
productivity gains for TOCs would be in the area of scale&#13;
economies. Finally, based upon estimates of the price elasticity of infrastructure, it would appear that in the British example the regulator has been reasonably successful in controlling the market power of the monopoly operator, Railtrack.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>University of Trieste: European Institute for Study of Transport Economics</dc:publisher><dc:source>1825-3997</dc:source><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>TF</dc:subject><dc:title>Production economics of a vertically separated railway – The case of the British train operating companies.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Cowie, Jonathan</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-08-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

The results were also compared with granite aggregate that has been proved to be a good natural aggregate for producing PCC.

Two types of brick of different strength were crushed to coarse aggregate that was used to produce concretes of different strength. Natural granite aggregate was also used to produce concretes in order to compare results. The paper presents the results for brick unit uniaxial compressive strength, aggregate impact value, aggregate relative density, brick and aggregate water absorption, aggregate porosity, concrete density, and concrete strength before and after exposure to high temperatures.

Stochastic assignment methods are accepted to be more realistic than deterministic and it is of interest to examine the potential for optimal tolling in the case of Stochastic User Equilibrium (SUE). In examining the case of Stochastic User Equilibrium the ‘desired flow pattern’ to be created must first be determined. The classical economics solution of replacing unit-cost flow functions with marginal-cost flow functions which under deterministic assignment produces the System Optimal solution (where Total Network Travel Cost (TNTC) is minimised) does not generally result in TNTC being minimised in the Stochastic Case. Instead such tolls produce a ‘Stochastic System Optimal’ (SSO) solution where the Total Perceived Network Travel Cost (TPNTC) is minimised.&#13;
&#13;
This paper examines and compares link-based tolling solutions to achieve both the SSO (TPNTC minimised) and true SO (TNTC minimised) under SUE and illustrates the concept with numerical examples. Such link-based tolling schemes produce network benefit by re-routing rather than traffic suppression as opposed to the cordon-based charging schemes which have been implemented in practice. Equity issues relating to charging schemes are discussed and the desirability of zero-toll routes is highlighted associated with greater potential political acceptability of charging schemes that do not impose excessive charges upon users (such as minimal or low revenue tolls). A heuristic is developed to toll network links in such a way as to balance the number of links tolled against the revenue required to produce a desired reduction in TNTC such that optimal network flow patterns are approached.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1922/1/Trans_Res_A_paper_KS.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0965 8564</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:title>Tolling traffic links under stochastic assignment: Modelling the relationship between the number and price level of tolled links and optimal traffic flows.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, Kathryn</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-08-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.tra.2006.09.015</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Such toll sets are however non-unique, and further optimisation is possible: for example, minimal revenue tolls create the desired SO flow pattern at minimal additional cost to the users. In the case of deterministic assignment, the minimal revenue toll problem is capable of solution by various methods, such as linear programming [BHR97] and heuristically by reduction to a multi-commodity max-flow problem [Dia00]. However, it is generally accepted that deterministic models are less realistic than stochastic, and thus it is of interest to investigate the principles of tolling under stochastic modelling conditions. This paper develops methodologies to examine the minimal revenue toll problem in the case of Stochastic User Equilibrium. Tolling solutions for both ‘true’ System Optimum and Stochastic System Optimum under SUE are derived, using both logit and probit assignment methods.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer</dc:publisher><dc:source>978-0-387-29644-9</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>HB</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA</dc:subject><dc:title>Minimal revenue network tolling: system optimisation under stochastic assignment.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, Kathryn</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Maher, Mike</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:contributor>Hearn, Donald W</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Smith, Michael J</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Lawphongpanich, Siriphong</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-02-16</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Book chapter</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/0-387-29645-X_9</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

At the SSO solution, the total of the users’ perceived costs is minimised. The formulation and analysis is carried out in a general utility-maximising framework, with the probit and logit models being special cases. Conditions for the SSO flow pattern are derived, from which it can be seen that the marginal social costs play the same role in the SSO as the standard costs play in SUE. In particular, it is shown that the SSO solution can be obtained through the use of an algorithm for SUE, but with the marginal costs replacing the standard costs in the stochastic loading and that optimal tolls are the differences between the marginal social costs and the standard costs. For the case of the logit model an explicit path-based objective function is obtained which is of a pleasing symmetrical form when compared with the objective functions for SUE, SO and UE. Additionally, a link-based objective function for the general utility-maximising case is formulated for SSO, which is similar in form to the SUE objective function of Sheffi and Powell.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1924/1/TR_B_05.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>0191 2615</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>HM</dc:subject><dc:title>Stochastic social optimum traffic assignment.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Maher, Mike</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, Kathryn</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Rosa, Andrea</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.trb.2004.10.001</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Analysis of natural frequency measurements from 602 trees, belonging to eight different species, showed that natural frequency was strongly and linearly related to the ratio of diameter at breast height to total tree height squared (i.e., DBH/H 2). After accounting for their size, pines (Pinus spp.) were found to have a significantly lower natural frequency than both spruce (Picea spp.) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga spp.). Natural sway frequencies of de-branched trees were significantly higher than those of the same trees with the branches intact, and the difference increased with an increasing ratio of DBH/H 2. Damping mechanisms were discussed and methods for measuring damping ratio were presented. Analysis of available data suggested that internal damping ratios were typically less than 0.05 and were not related to tree diameter. External damping was mainly due to aerodynamic drag on the foliage and contact between the crowns of adjacent trees. Analysis of data from previous wind-tunnel studies indicated that damping due to aerodynamic drag is a nonlinear function of velocity. Damping due to crown contact has been suggested by a previous author to be a function of both the distance to and the size of adjacent trees. Therefore, in uniformly spaced stands it may be possible to model crown contact damping as a function of stand density index (SDI), a common forestry measure which incorporates both of these variables.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Springer</dc:publisher><dc:source>0931-1890</dc:source><dc:subject>SD</dc:subject><dc:subject>TA</dc:subject><dc:title>Natural sway frequencies and damping ratios of trees: concepts, review and synthesis of previous studies.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Moore, John</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Maguire, Douglas A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-03-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/s00468-003-0295-6</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The project is developing a methodology for the coherent and consistent integration of information from multiple sources about complex systems (based on Bayesian statistical models) and a series demonstration of this approach. Most, but not all, of these are transport applications. Alongside the modeling frameworks being developed, the project has developed a framework for storing a complete audit trail, covering the specification and fitting of statistical models, and making use of a formal metadata specification to represent statistical models. This framework builds on ideas about metadata for processes that have been developed in other statistical projects. Practitioners are often skeptical about results derived from models. In practice, all analysis of survey or sample data involves some form of model, even if it is hidden in implicit assumptions. The approach to this skepticism is to open up the model to scrutiny and to present information about the reliability of results, under the title of provenance and reliability. All this comes from the metadata about the statistical model. The approach is generic, but the presentation needs to be domain specific and tailored to the level of expertise and understanding of the user of the results. This paper presents the motivation behind this approach and outlines the metadata structures and functionality being built to deliver this support to users of results from the Opus methodology.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0361-1981</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>HA</dc:subject><dc:subject>QA76</dc:subject><dc:title>Integrating information about complex systems: role of metadata in the acceptability of results from models.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Westlake, Andrew</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Wigan, Marcus</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-02-28</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.3141/1972-10</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

by road and transport investment. However techniques for assessing and valuing the freight component of&#13;
this economic benefit have been rather limited in Australia and until recently have been ignored. As a result, benefits generated by improvements from road investment and traffic management are understated and&#13;
expenditure decisions biased towards passenger movements. &#13;
&#13;
Freight transit times are of critical importance to freight service users, and as a result have a large potential impact on the benefits from transport investments. This concept is mode independent, and relies only on the perceptions and economic drivers of the shippers and receivers.&#13;
&#13;
This study has identified a need for valuing the time spent in transit for individual items or loads of freight,&#13;
which is omitted by most evaluations and economic assessments of transport proposals and policies in&#13;
Australia.&#13;
&#13;
Austroads commissioned ARRB TR who engaged FDF as sub-consultant to examine freight travel time savings in detail. The study comprised two Stages, as follows:&#13;
Stage 1: A pilot study using a Stated Preference (SP) survey of freight shippers, conducted in Melbourne&#13;
in May 1998, with 43 respondents, and 129 completed responses (Austroads Project N.BS.9702, Task 5).&#13;
Stage 2: A survey, using similar techniques to the Stage 1 pilot survey of freight shippers in the automotive&#13;
components manufacturing industry, conducted in Melbourne in late 2000, with 107 respondents,and 320 completed responses (Austroads Project BS.E.N.536 (was N.BS.9806)).&#13;
&#13;
This project was limited rather than universal in scope. The values derived in this study provide a first basis for quantifying previously unmeasured benefits in the&#13;
movements of freight in Australia. Significantly larger samples will be required to obtain more precise values for freight travel time.

They show marked advantages in strength, thermal performance and speed of installation when compared with the traditional timber frame method of construction. While many types of composite panel building systems have been developed, panels made from a thick layer of foam (often expanded polystyrene) sandwiched between two layers of oriented strand board (OSB) or plywood are usually referred to as SIPs. They were developed in North America and although they have experienced wide-scale utilisation around the world, the concept is still relatively unknown in the UK. This paper details part of a comprehensive research study on SIPs at Napier University and deals with their performance under combined bending and axial compression and the effects of medium-term loading on panel integrity for use as load-bearing walls and columns. The results have illustrated that SIPs perform as an effective composite material possessing considerable strength and stiffness necessary to sustain required design loads.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1957/1/stbu.2006.159.1.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Insititution of Civil Engineers &amp; Thomas Telford</dc:publisher><dc:source>0965-0911</dc:source><dc:subject>TH</dc:subject><dc:subject>TA</dc:subject><dc:title>Performance of structural insulated panels</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Kermani, Abdy</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2006-02-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>VoR</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1680/stbu.2006.159.1.13</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

Such toll sets are however non-unique, and further optimisation is possible: for example, minimal revenue tolls create the desired SO flow pattern at minimal additional cost to the users. In the case of deterministic assignment, the minimal revenue toll problem is capable of solution by various methods, such as linear programming [BHR97] and heuristically by reduction to a multi-commodity max-flow problem [Dia00]. However, it is generally accepted that deterministic models are less realistic than stochastic, and thus it is of interest to investigate the principles of tolling under stochastic modelling conditions. This paper develops methodologies to examine the minimal revenue toll problem in the case of Stochastic User Equilibrium. Tolling solutions for both ‘true’ System Optimum and Stochastic System Optimum under SUE are derived, using both logit and probit assignment methods.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/1968/1/StewartMaherStochTollEd_final.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Elsevier</dc:publisher><dc:source>9780080536767</dc:source><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:title>Minimal revenue network tolling: system optimisation under stochastic assignment with elastic demand.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Stewart, Kathryn</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Maher, Mike</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:contributor>Allsop, Richard E</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:contributor>Heydecker, Benjamin</rioxxterms:contributor><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Book chapter</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

effectiveness and acceptance of urban pricing schemes’ of the Key Action ‘Sustainable Mobility and Intermodality’ within the Thematic Programme ‘Competitive and&#13;
Sustainable Growth’.&#13;
&#13;
PRoGRESS addresses one of the key challenges of European transport policy by exploring the use of pricing schemes to manage demand in congested urban areas while at the same time raising revenue that will enable the substantial improvements to the public transport infrastructure that are necessary to offer people viable alternatives to private car use.&#13;
&#13;
The project centres on eight sites developing and demonstrating road pricing schemes: Bristol, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Genoa, Gothenburg, Helsinki, Rome and Trondheim.&#13;
Across these sites, a number of road pricing concepts and technologies are being developed and demonstrated.&#13;
&#13;
The overall PRoGRESS project is broken down into seven workpackages, one of them being WP4 Social, economic and political issues. The objective of WP4 is to develop&#13;
and assess the political, economic and social framework required for the implementation of road pricing. Deliverable 4.3 deals with consultation, both with stakeholders and the general public, and with marketing and awareness raising.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Bristol City Council</dc:publisher><dc:subject>D901</dc:subject><dc:subject>HE</dc:subject><dc:subject>TE</dc:subject><dc:title>Pricing road use for greater responsibility, efficiency and sustainability in cities: Social and political issues.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Bielefeldt, Christiane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Bristol City Council</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Transport Research Institute, Napier University</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:project funder_name="European Commission">PROGRESS Consortium, Project 2000-CM.10390</rioxxterms:project><rioxxterms:publication_date>2004-03-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Monograph</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

&#13;
Demonstrations were conducted in Munich, Utrecht, Paris and Tel Aviv with a range of different ramp metering algortithms and strategies.&#13;
&#13;
The impact and socio-economic assessment showed that ramp metering could improve travel times and benefits over the No Control base case in Paris and Tel Aviv, while in Utrecht ramp delays outweighed the time advantages achieved on the motorway. In all cases, where benefits could be achieved, they led to very high cost-benefit ratios of uo to 10.3.&#13;
&#13;
From the various control strategies used, the Coordinated Strategy showed the best results. [In] a comparison bewteen the 1 car-per-green and the 2 car-per-green metering strategy used in Utrecht, 2 cars-per-green showed the better results in four out of five cases.&#13;
&#13;
The safety assessment could not show an accident reduction in Utrecht, while the risk analysis carried out by INRETS showed a significant improvement.&#13;

networks to the performance modeling of a gas transmission&#13;
compressor. Results of compressor model testing suggest that&#13;
compressor speed can be estimated to within ± 2.5 %. The neural&#13;
network property of function approximation is used to predict&#13;
compressor speed for given process constraints and instrument&#13;
input sets. The effects of training set size, instrument noise,&#13;
reduced input sets and extrapolation from the training domain,&#13;
are quantified. Various neural network architectures and training&#13;
schema were examined. The embedding of a neural network into&#13;
an expert system is also discussed. A neural network can be retrained&#13;
to reflect changing compressor characteristics. A global&#13;
saving in compressor fuel gas of 1% could prevent the&#13;
production of 6 million tonnes of CO2 per year, [1].</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>0791836010</dc:source><dc:subject>TJ</dc:subject><dc:subject>TK</dc:subject><dc:title>A novel method for the performance modelling of a gas transmission compressor.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Henderson, Douglas</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Armitage, Alistair</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Pearson, W N</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2002-06-03</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Conference Paper/Proceeding/Abstract</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>

These changes have been driven partly by changes in legislation regarding compulsory competitive tendering, best value and more lately prudential finance legislation. They have also been driven by developments in industry procurement practices, particularly following publication of the Latham and Egan reports. Results of research seeking to assess current practice regarding procurement of capital projects in local authorities following publication of the National Procurement Strategy in October 2003 are presented. The organisation of the procurement function, use of standard forms of contract, e-procurement, capability and arrangements for procurement-related training are discussed including use of external consultants. The overall conclusion is that local authorities are at various stages of development regarding implementation of the National Procurement Strategy. Although most of them have in place training arrangements to develop skills of technical and procurement staff, many local authorities will continue to use external consultants. Moreover, 75% of local authorities see use of external consultants to provide professional advice in various elements of project procurement as a long-term measure.</dc:description><dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format><dc:identifier>http://researchrepository.napier.ac.uk/2024/1/sw3.pdf</dc:identifier><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Thomas Telford for Institution of Civil Engineers</dc:publisher><dc:source>0965-0903</dc:source><dc:subject>HD28</dc:subject><dc:subject>TH</dc:subject><dc:subject>HD61</dc:subject><dc:title>Procurement of construction projects in local government.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Wamuziri, Sam</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Seywright, A</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2005-06-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1680/muen.2005.158.2.145</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

The nation’s architectural history is synonymous with the use of natural stone, and the principles of construction developed over generations in response to Scotland’s particular climatic conditions still find relevance today in the design and detailing of new buildings. Equally, an understanding of the ways in which stone is extracted and processed is as fundamental to its contemporary use as having up-to-date knowledge of the continuously changing legislation that affects its specification and procurement. &#13;

In a period in which trade unions have changed significantly, the general national agenda appears to be changing, acknowledging issues of importance to women. UNISON, Britain's largest trade union, has enshrined proportionality and fair representation in its constitution, developing national initiatives aimed at improving opportunities in work and in the union for women, black workers, manual workers, disabled workers, etc. who traditionally have been less well represented. Many issues affecting women generally have moved to centre stage, yet issues affecting women ancillary workers seem as excluded as ever. Through a study of cleaners in the National Health Service this article argues that workplace interests reflect wider social divisions, but in a variety of patterns depending on the social organization of work. Despite thewidening trade union agenda, particular interests — more specifically the workplace interests of working-class women and black women — continue to be neglected.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:publisher>Wiley-Blackwell</dc:publisher><dc:source>0968-6673</dc:source><dc:subject>HC</dc:subject><dc:subject>HQ</dc:subject><dc:title>A feminist trade union agenda?

The sample study was of composed of three key festival experts. This included two directors from two large festivals occurring at different times of the year in Edinburgh. Both directors have a well established leadership history in their respective festival. In addition one additional interviewee had responsibility for the strategic development of art events and festivals at a national level (2006). Repertory Grids were employed to identify key constructs that festival leaders hold of the arena in which they work. Six key areas emerge from the constructs identified. These are leadership, focus, relationship with the community, decision making, funding, and history of the festival. Leadership had the highest rating and the sub categories identified within this were independence, freedom and culture. Focus of the event and relationship with the community were, respectively, the next most highly rated constructs.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1466 450X</dc:source><dc:subject>HD</dc:subject><dc:title>The dynamics of successful events – the experts’ perspective.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Ensor, John</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Robertson, Martin</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Ali-Knight, Jane</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2007-04-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version><rioxxterms:version_of_record>http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/13606710701406550</rioxxterms:version_of_record></rioxx></metadata></record>

UK private finance initiative (PFI). The study is based on semi-structured interviews conducted&#13;
during the period from April to October 2002 at three public bodies which had used PFI to finance&#13;
capital projects located in Scotland, Wales and England. Overall there is a mixture of impressions&#13;
from the interviewees on attitudes to risk transfers and how risks were quantified in decisionmaking.&#13;
The study reveals that PFI has definite advantages over conventional contractual and&#13;
financing arrangements for public sector projects in a number of areas. However, these advantages&#13;
do not predominately derive from risk transfer as generally suggested by the UK government. The&#13;
client-contractor split, rather than risk transfer, was seen as being in many ways the most beneficial&#13;
feature of the PFI. Given the lack of experience and expertise of public sector bodies in assessing&#13;
and valuing risks, more training of risk management in procurement is clearly needed for public&#13;
sector managers.</dc:description><dc:language>en</dc:language><dc:source>1475-1283</dc:source><dc:subject>HD61</dc:subject><dc:subject>HJ</dc:subject><dc:subject>L1</dc:subject><dc:title>Public bodies’ perceptions on risk transfer in the UK’s private finance initiative.</dc:title><rioxxterms:author>Gao, Simon S</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:author>Handley-Schachler, Morrison</rioxxterms:author><rioxxterms:publication_date>2003-01-01</rioxxterms:publication_date><rioxxterms:type>Journal Article/Review</rioxxterms:type><rioxxterms:version>NA</rioxxterms:version></rioxx></metadata></record>
