Feasibility of a novel vermitechnology using vermicast as substrate for activated sludge disposal by two epigeic earthworm species  [PDF]

Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/as.2013.410071

This study was conducted to investigate the feasibility of vermicomposting by using vermicast as the substrate for the stabilization of municipal activated sludge, called hereafter as direct vermistabilization, in which the pre-treatment and bulking materials required in previous practices were all omitted. For this purpose, two epigeic earthworm species, namely Eisenia foetida and Bimastus parvus, were inoculated into substrate for composting fresh dewatered activated sludge. Direct vermistabilization resulted in significant reductions in pH, TOC, C/N ratio and the content of heavy metals, as well as increases in EC, total N, total P and total K in the final vermicast. Moreover, both Eisenia foetida and Bimastus parvus showed faster growth rate and higher cocoon production. The results of this study suggest that the direct vermistabilization has the advantages of being simple, cost-effective and efficient, and can thus be used as a feasible vermicomposting approach to convert fresh dewatered activated sludge into a valuable product for agricultural use. The results also suggest that Bimastus parvus can be used as a new potential candidate for vermicomposting of municipal activated sludge.

Abstract: Combining the Capacitively Coupled Contactless Conductivity Detection (C 4D) technique and the principle of cross correlation flow measurement, a new method for flow rate measurement in millimeter-scale pipes was proposed. The research work included two parts. First, a new five-electrode C 4D sensor was developed. Second, with two conductivity signals obtained by the developed sensor, the flow rate measurement was implemented by using the principle of cross correlation flow measurement. The experimental results showed that the proposed flow rate measurement method was effective, the developed five-electrode C 4D sensor was successful, and the measurement accuracy was satisfactory. In five millimeter-scale pipes with different inner diameters of 0.5, 0.8, 1.8, 3.0 and 3.9 mm respectively, the maximum relative difference of the flow rate measurement between the reference flow rate and the measured flow rate was less than 5%.
Joint Scheduling and Power Allocations for Traffic Offloading via Dual-Connectivity

Computer Science , 2015,
Abstract: With the rapid growth of mobile traffic demand, a promising approach to relieve cellular network congestion is to offload users' traffic to small-cell networks. In this paper, we investigate how the mobile users (MUs) can effectively offload traffic by taking advantage of the capability of dual-connectivity, which enables an MU to simultaneously communicate with a macro base station (BS) and a small-cell access point (AP) via two radio-interfaces. Offloading traffic to the AP usually reduces the MUs' mobile data cost, but often at the expense of suffering increased interferences from other MUs at the same AP. We thus formulate an optimization problem that jointly determines each MU's traffic schedule (between the BS and AP) and power control (between two radio-interfaces). The system objective is to minimize all MUs' total cost, while satisfying each MU's transmit-power constraints through proper interference control. In spite of the non-convexity of the problem, we design both a centralized algorithm and a distributed algorithm to solve the joint optimization problem. Numerical results show that the proposed algorithms can achieve the close-to-optimum results comparing with the ones achieved by the LINGO (a commercial optimization software), but with significantly less computational complexity. The results also show that the proposed adaptive offloading can significantly reduce the MUs' cost, i.e., save more than 75% of the cost without offloading traffic and 65% of the cost with a fixed offloading.

环境工程学报 , 2013,
Abstract: Sludge-based activated carbon was produced by ZnCl2 chemical activation of dewatered sludge, and was used as adsorbent for toluene in fixed bed. At the same time, the effects of bed depth, initial concentration and gas linear velocity on removal of toluene were studied, and mass transfer model for this process was established to calculate mass transfer zone and total mass transfer coefficient. Results show that with bed depth changing from 3 cm to 5 cm, mass transfer zone has no significant change, while the total mass transfer coefficient increases by 66.66%; mass transfer zone increases by 17.19% and total mass transfer coefficient reduces by 22.05%with the toluene concentration increasing by 3.36 times. In the operation of the gas linear velocity range, with the gas linear velocity double than that of the original, total mass transfer coefficient increases by 65.27%, which indicates that this process belongs to external diffusion control.

International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/ijms140612023
Abstract: (?)-Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and curcumin are two naturally derived agents that have been widely investigated worldwide. They exhibit their anti-tumor effects in many types of cancers. In the current study, the effect of the combination of the two agents on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells was investigated. The results revealed that at low concentrations, the combination of the EGCG and curcumin strongly enhanced cell cycle arrest. Flow cytometry analysis showed that the cells were arrested at G1 and S/G2 phases. Two main cell cycle related proteins cyclin D1 and cyclin B1 were significantly inhibited at the present of EGCG and curcumin. EdU (5-ethynyl-2'-deoxyuridine) fluorescence staining showed that the DNA replication was significantly blocked. A clonal growth assay also confirmed a marked repression of cell growth. In a lung cancer xenograft node mice model, combination of EGCG and curcumin exhibited protective effect against weight loss due to tumor burden. Tumor growth was strongly repressed by the combination of the two agents, without causing any serious side-effect. Overall, these results strongly suggest that EGCG in combination with curcumin could be a candidate for chemoprevention agent of NSCLC.

Abstract: Characterization and modeling of co-channel interference is critical for the design and performance evaluation of realistic multi-cell cellular networks. In this paper, based on alpha stable processes, an analytical co-channel interference model is proposed for multi-cell multiple-input multi-output (MIMO) cellular networks. The impact of different channel parameters on the new interference model is analyzed numerically. Furthermore, the exact normalized downlink average capacity is derived for a multi-cell MIMO cellular network with co-channel interference. Moreover, the closed-form normalized downlink average capacity is derived for cell-edge users in the multi-cell multiple-input single-output (MISO) cooperative cellular network with co-channel interference. From the new co-channel interference model and capacity, the impact of cooperative antennas and base stations on cell-edge user performance in the multi-cell multi-antenna cellular network is investigated by numerical methods. Numerical results show that cooperative transmission can improve the capacity performance of multi-cell multi-antenna cooperative cellular networks, especially in a scenario with a high density of interfering base stations. The capacity performance gain is degraded with the increased number of cooperative antennas or base stations.

Abstract: To compare the flesh quality of large yellow croaker cultured with three different modes, enclosure culture(EC), cage culture with feeding trash fish(CCF) and cage culture with feeding formula diet(CCD), thirty six fish individuals of EC(484.6 ± 79.8 g), CCF(432.7 ± 87.9 g) and CCD(416.9 ± 49.5 g) were sampled to measure body color, flesh water holding capacity, flesh proximate composition, amino acids and fatty acids composition, and collagen and inosinic acid contents. The analysis showed that there was no significant difference in the yellowness of skin and the contents of crude protein and inosinic acid between CCD and EC(P > 0.05), and the two modes showed higher values than CCF(P < 0.05). Most of the amino acids(AA) in flesh were higher in EC than in CCF(P < 0.05), but CCD showed no difference in AA composition from the other two modes(P > 0.05). EC and CCD had higher contents of collagen, free AA and lower drip loss than CC(P < 0.05). In polyunsaturated fatty acids, EC showed significantly higher levels of C20:5 n-3 and C22:6 n-3 than CCF and CCD(P < 0.05), but CCD had significantly higher C18:2 n-6 than CCF and EC(P < 0.05). In conclusion, the flesh quality of CCD fish is similar to EC fish, and these two modes have better flesh quality than CCF
Baryon QCD sum rules in an external isovector-scalar field and baryon isospin mass splittings
Xuemin Jin
Physics , 1995, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.52.2964
Abstract: Within the QCD sum-rule approach in an external field, we calculate the baryon matrix element of isovector-scalar current, $H_{\rm B}=\langle B|\overline{u}u- \overline{d}d|B\rangle/2M_{\rm B}$, for octet baryons, which appears in the response of the correlator of baryon interpolating fields to a constant isovector-scalar external field. The sum rules are obtained for a general baryon interpolating field with an appropriate form for the phenomenological ansatz of the spectral density. The key phenomenological input is the response of the quark condensates to the external field. To first order in the quark mass difference $\delta m=m_d-m_u$, the non-electromagnetic part of the baryon isospin mass splitting is given by the product of $\delta m$ and $H_{\rm B}$. Therefore, QCD sum-rule calculation of $H_{\rm B}$ leads to an estimate of the octet baryon isospin mass splittings. The resulting values are comparable to the experimental values; however, the sum-rule predictions for $H_{\rm B}$ are sensitive to the values of the response of the quark condensates to the external source, which are not well determined.
A Note on the External-Field Method in QCD Sum Rules
Xuemin Jin
Physics , 1996, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.55.1693
Abstract: The external-field method has been used extensively in the QCD sum-rule approach to explore various hadron static properties. In the traditional formalism of this method, the transitions from the ground state hadron to excited states are not exponentially suppressed relative to the ground state term and thus contaminate the ground state hadron property to be extracted. In this paper, we suggest a modified formalism, in which the transition terms are exponentially suppressed relative to the ground state term. As such, the pole plus continuum spectral model, traditionally invoked in QCD sum-rule approach, can be adopted. Thus, this modified formalism has potential to improve the predictability and reliability of external-field sum-rule calculations, which is illustrated in an explicit example.
QCD sum rules for $Δ$ isobar in nuclear matter
Xuemin Jin
Physics , 1994, DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevC.51.2260
Abstract: The self-energies of $\Delta$ isobar propagating in nuclear matter are calculated using the finite-density QCD sum-rule methods. The calculations show that the Lorentz vector self-energy for the $\Delta$ is significantly smaller than the nucleon vector self-energy. The magnitude of the $\Delta$ scalar self-energy is larger than the corresponding value for the nucleon, which suggests a strong attractive net self-energy for the $\Delta$; however, the prediction for the scalar self-energy is very sensitive to the density dependence of certain in-medium four-quark condensate. Phenomenological implications for the couplings of the $\Delta$ to the nuclear scalar and vector fields are briefly discussed.
