Green and Efficient Oxidation of Octanol by Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Supported on Activated Carbon

Author(s):Mohammad Sadiq, Razia Aman, Saddam Hussain, Muhammad Abid Zia, Najeeb Ur Rahman, Mohammad Saeed

ABSTRACT
Iron oxide nanoparticles were synthesized by precipitation method and supported on activated carbon. The catalyst thus obtained was characterized by various physicochemical techniques, and used for the liquid phase dehydrogenation/oxidation of octanol in a batch reactor at various temperatures in the range 30 °C – 60 °C. Maximum conversion of octanol to octanal was attained at 60°;C in 30 min. However, with longer reaction time, the selectivity of the catalyst was found to change in favor of octene as a product.

A Survey Study on the Profile of Human Smugglers in Turkey

Author(s):Tülin Günşen İçli, Hanifi Sever, Muhammed Sever

ABSTRACT
Illegal migration is an impalpable phenomenon with complicated dimensions. Thousands of people leave their homelands every year due to a number of reasons such as civil wars, terrorism, economic difficulties, and social oppressions. With their flexible modus operandi, migrant smugglers benefit from individuals or groups that wish to immigrate for a more comfortable life. In order to reach a complete perception of illegal migration one needs to draw an accurate profile of migrant smugglers. At this end, data collection from both smugglers as perpetrators and illegal migrants as the object of the Continue reading

SCIRP Practicing Legal and Moderate Email Marketing

Some advertisement is necessary and online marketing is the only viable option for an online publisher. Email marketing is only one option of online marketing. SCIRP is using email marketing in a cautious manner because also emails sent legally can annoy recipients. This is the last SCIRP wants. Estimates exist claiming that “97 % of all emails sent over the Internet are unwanted”. Please do not blame SCIRP for this high number. SCIRP’s strategy is to limit email campaigns and to use alternative channels to announce author’s achievements (interesting papers with a more general focus) and publishing possibilities. SCIRP is using its own Blog (this one), News, and various social media: LinkedIn, facebook, and Twitter. Companies affiliated with SCIRP advertise for one another on their websites with logo and link. With all these other online marketing strategies the importance of email marketing has declined. Paper submission from email marketing accounts only for 20 % … 30 % at SCIRP today.

Time of Conception and Birth-Relation of “Big Killers” Patients and Longevity

Author(s):Eliyahu Stoupel, Abdonas Tamoshiunas, Richardas Radishauskas, Gailute Bernotiene, Abid Assali, Hanna Vaknin, Igal Teplitzki, Ran Kornowski, Evgeny Abramson, Eyal Fenig

ABSTRACT
In recent years some interrelationships between time of birth and longevity were published. Concomitant publications appeared demonstrating links between Space Weather and the timing of medical events; in part of both these studies it was shown that Space Weather indices are stronger connected with the time of conception as with the birth time. The aim of these study was to consider birth and conception month of patients suffering from a number of “big killer” pathologies, affecting human longevity and comparing with published data on centenarians—100 – 112 years old persons in the USA. Patients and Methods: We included monthly Continue reading

Sleep Posture Affects Sleep Parameters Differently in Young and Senior Japanese as Assessed by Actigraphy

Author(s) :Akiko Nojiri, Chikako Okumura, Yushi Ito

ABSTRACT

Objective sleep parameters
Objective sleep parameters (total minutes scored as awake (TMSA), total sleep time (TST), wake after sleep onset (WASO), sleep efficiency (SE), sleep onset latency (SOL), activity mean score (AMS), activity index (ACTX), sleep fragmentation index (SFX), wake episode (WEP) and long wake episodes (LWEP)) assessed by actigraphy in younger and senior groups.

In an attempt to study the relationship between sleep postures and sleep parameters assessed by actigraphy, we applied the newly developed Activity Monitoring and Evaluation System (A-MES) and actigraphy at the same time to younger and senior Japanese volunteer groups. It was found that sleep postures and diurnal activity determines, to some extent, sleep parameters including activity mean score (AMS), activity index (ACTX), waking episodes (WEP) and sleep fragmentation index (SFX). It was also found that sleep properties are different in younger and senior Japanese.

Seismic Imaging and Reservoir Architecture of Sub-Marine Channel Systems Offshore West Nile Delta of Egypt

Author(s):Essam Sharaf, Ibrahim Korrat, Hamdy Seisa, Eslam Esmaiel

ABSTRACT
Offshore Nile Delta gas reservoirs are dominated by slope-channel systems of Plio-Pleistocene age. High-quality, three-dimensional seismic imaging has significantly helped in defining the geomorphology and architectures of these channels. Integrating seismic, logs and core data from four wells resulted in understanding of different stages of channel development and reservoir quality. The studied reservoirs that are largely controlled by episodes of transgressive-regressive events Continue reading

Scientific Research Publishing Inc. – A Company with Home in the USA!

It is often debated if Scientific Research Publishing (SCIRP) is a Chinese or a US American company. The answer is straight forward:

Scientific Research Publishing Inc. is a US American company. It is registered in Delaware, USA. This makes Delaware SCIRP’s home, and “domestic state“. Its Principal Place of Business (PPB) is in Wuhan, China.

Everything clear now? Continue reading

Jeffrey Beall: “I am an academic crime fighter”

Beall is fighting with his Blog and a List of Publishers. Listed publishers he calls „predatory“ (characterized by plunder, robbery, or exploitation; acting with or indicative of rapacious, greedy, or selfish motives). “… Beall [is] acting as prosecutor, judge and jury on who’s predatory and who’s not. Remarkably, hundreds if not thousands of librarians and others seem to take Beall’s word as gospel.” (Crawford 2014a) But it seems he has been going too far and people have started to turn away from him. “… the lists should be ignored.” (Crawford 2014b)
