How to live to 110 : your comprehensive guide to a healthy life by Brian Kirby( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive guide to living a long and healthy life. Based on accepted scientific research, How to Live to 110 gives a clear, detailed and frank account of how we are shortening our lives and ways to change things for the better. Hardly anyone actual dies of old age, they die from disease - and most of these to varying degrees can be prevented. In fact, the modern lifestyle is often the major contributing factor. Every day, most of us are helping to bring about our early death. With small adjustments to what we eat, drink and do, we can potentially live to be 110 without the need for any m

Dielectric measurement of algal lipid content for biodiesel production by Michael S Bono( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Algae are a promising feedstock for biodiesel production. Real-time monitoring of algal lipid content will enable increased productivity of algal biofuel feedstocks. Dielectric spectroscopy is well-suited to automated industrial monitoring and is sensitive to cellular properties, making it a promising method for algal lipid monitoring. In the first portion of this dissertation, I developed a method to measure the dielectric properties of algae cell suspensions and verified dielectric sensitivity to lipid accumulation via calibration with Nile red fluorometry. In order to develop an improved calibration method for my dielectric characterization, I then characterized intact algae cells via flow cytometry and quantitative 1 H NMR for development of an NMR-traceable flow cytometry protocol for algal lipid measurement. Flow cytometry provides information on the distribution of lipid content within algae populations, whereas 1 H NMR provides direct, rapid quantification of lipids in living cell suspensions without the need for cellular disruption and lipid extraction. In the final part of this dissertation, I used microfluidic single-cell impedance cytometry to simultaneously measure the impedance and fluorescence of individual algae cells with a range of lipid contents for development of an industrial algal lipid measurement system. This work has demonstrated the potential of dielectric spectroscopy for automated algal lipid monitoring, which will facilitate reliable harvest of algal biofuel feedstocks with high lipid content

Nonlocal interferometry with macroscopic coherent states and its application to quantum communications by Brian Kirby( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Macroscopic quantum effects are of fundamental interest because they help us to understand the quantum-classical boundary, and may also have important practical applications in long-range quantum communications. Specifically we analyze a macroscopic generalization of the Franson interferometer, where violations of Bell's inequality can be observed using phase entangled coherent states created using weak nonlinearities. Furthermore we want to understand how these states, and other macroscopic quantum states, can be applied to secure quantum communications. We find that Bell's inequality can be violated at ranges of roughly 400 km in optical fiber when various unambiguous state discrimination techniques are applied. In addition Monte Carlo simulations suggest that quantum communications schemes based on macroscopic quantum states and random unitary transformations can be potentially secure at long distances. Lastly, we calculate the feasibility of creating the weak nonlinearity needed for the experimental realization of these proposals using metastable xenon in a high finesse cavity. This research suggests that quantum states created using macroscopic coherent states and weak nonlinearities may be a realistic path towards the realization of secure long-range quantum communications

Fourplay by Brian Kirby( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early years (this was the silly sixties) included an overland trip by London Taxi to the Far East and ultimately, Australia. With a US partner, he created a cartoon strip for the Sydney Sun Herald, the London Daily Sketch and ultimately the Chicago Tribune/New York News Syndicate. He has worked as a designer and Creative Director in London, Sydney, Barbados and Perth. The years in Barbados were spent establishing a London-based design company but in that period he also became a member of the Barbados Arts Council, designer with the Barbados Dance Theatre and initiated design classes at the University of the West Indies. As a painter, Brian has had seven one-man exhibitions and been included in group shows that include the Biennales of Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Medellin (Columbia). In 1984 he became Senior Lecturer at the West Australian School of Art, Design and Media (Perth), working in graphics and film television and in this latter role, began to write.-
