The episcopacy in American Methodism by James E Kirby( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The narrative continues to the present and outlines the implications of changes that have taken place as we have moved from an itinerant, general superintendency to diocesan episcopacy with leaders no longer elected to the office by their peers."--Jacket

The national defense stockpile : an organizational perspective by Robert A Batchelor( )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is dependent on foreign sources for many strategic and critical materials vital to its survival and national security. To counter the affects of a disruption in the supply of these materials, the US maintains a National Defense Stockpile (NDS) made up of over a hundred separate depots located in various parts of the country. The management and policy formulation of various aspects of the NDS are distributed across a wide spectrum of agencies in the Executive and Legislative Branches. These organizations along with associated legislation are examined for their impact on the policy-formulation process. This thesis also reviews organizations outside the government that affect stockpile policy. General and specific recommendations on proposed management alternatives are presented at the end of the study. Keywords: National defense stockpile; Stockpile management; Stockpile policy; Strategic materials; Critical materials

Development of MAST: A Microscopy-Based Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Platform( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Antibiotic resistance is compromising our ability to treat bacterial infections. Clinical microbiology laboratories guide appropriate treatment through antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) of patient bacterial isolates. However, increasingly, pathogens are developing resistance to a broad range of antimicrobials, requiring AST of alternative agents for which no commercially available testing methods are available. Therefore, there exists a significant AST testing gap in which current methodologies cannot adequately address the need for rapid results in the face of unpredictable susceptibility profiles. To address this gap, we developed a multicomponent, microscopy-based AST (MAST) platform capable of AST determinations after only a 2 h incubation. MAST consists of a solid-phase microwell growth surface in a 384-well plate format, inkjet printing–based application of both antimicrobials and bacteria at any desired concentrations, automated microscopic imaging of bacterial replication, and a deep learning approach for automated image classification and determination of antimicrobial minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs). In evaluating a susceptible strain set, 95.8% were within ±1 and 99.4% were within ±2, twofold dilutions, respectively, of reference broth microdilution MIC values. Most (98.3%) of the results were in categorical agreement. We conclude that MAST offers promise for rapid, accurate, and flexible AST to help address the antimicrobial testing gap
