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

Design optimization of microfluidic devices for rare cell capture by James Paul Smith( Book )

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

The capture of rare cells from complex fluids, such as circulating tumor cells (CTCs) from a peripheral blood sample, has the potential to significantly advance our understanding and treatment of disease. Here, we consider microfluidic devices designed to isolate rare cells by bringing them into contact with, and binding the cells to, an antibody-functionalized obstacle array geometry. Each downstream biomedical assay, such as single-cell genetic analyses or enumeration for the monitoring of disease progression, requires a different balance of capture efficiency and sample purity in isolating the rare cells; this work addresses that need for application-specific microfluidic device geometries by presenting a series of numerical simulations for design optimization. We have developed coupled computational fluid dynamics, particle advection, and cell adhesion Monte Carlo simulations that predicts the probability of capturing target and contaminating cells in a given device geometry, and have applied these simulations to the study the capture of prostate and pancreatic cancer cells. We expand these simulations to consider the effect of dielectrophoresis (DEP), and show that it is possible to apply DEP forcing within the obstacle array to simultaneously increase the capture of target pancreatic cancer cells (using positive DEP) and decrease the capture of contaminating cells (using negative DEP). Finally, we present a transfer function approximation of cell transport in obstacle arrays, and apply that approximation to study the effects of reversing arrays and off-design boundary conditions. This work advances our understanding of rare cell immunocapture in microfluidic obstacle arrays, lays the groundwork for the experimental study of DEP-immunocapture devices, and presents an engineering framework to identify optimized geometries for each unique rare cell capture application
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

About the Book: Friday's game of golf has become important to Bill as the highlight of what is fast becoming a rather drab existence and to Brendon as one of the few things with the power to get him away from an ever-increasing workload. To protect the unique character of their game, rules have been added to those established by the Royal and Ancient with sledging encouraged and side-bets strictly regulated. When by chance, the twosome becomes a foursome then the carefully maintained order of things starts to change and both B1 and B2 find themselves, perhaps unwillingly, involved in an affair that really doesn't concern them and through this, forced to re-examine their own previously ordered lives. If you are a golfer then you'll enjoy it but even if you can't tell a hook from a hooker, maybe the humour and developing relationships will make it a worthwhile read. Brian Kirby: Born in London, Brian's education culminated with five years at Hornsey College of Art.-
