... needles) should be used when available. Decontamination The purpose of decontamination is to make a hazardous material safe for further handling. A decontamination procedure can range from sterilization to simple cleaning with soap and water. The following includes a description of the four main categories of physical and chemical means of decontamination. Heat: Wet heat is the most dependable method of sterilization. Steam autoclaving is the most convenient method available to the Duke laboratories for decontaminating biological waste and sterilizing glassware and media. Note: Autoclaves that are used for decontamination of biohazardous wastes should be monitored for the efficacy of treatment. This is accomplished by the use of biological indicators (i.e. spore strips). The generator of the waste (the lab) is responsible for performing and documenting this testing. Liquid Disinfection: Many types of liquid disinfectants are available under a variety of trade names. The most practical use of liquid disinfectants is for surface decontamination. Agents included in the category include, but are not limited to, quaternary ammonium compounds, phenolic compounds, halogens, aldehydes, alcohols and amines. A tuberculocidal disinfectant or diluted household bleach should always be used for decontamination when human materials are handled. NOTE: When household bleach is used for the decontamination of spills, a fresh solution (at least 10% household bleach) must be prepared. Bleach......

...Water is a chemical compound with the chemical formula H 2O. A water molecule contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds. Water is a liquid at standard ambient temperature and pressure, but it often co-exists on Earth with its solid state, ice, and gaseous state, steam (water vapor). Water also exists in a liquid crystal state near hydrophilic surfaces.[1][2][3] Water covers 71% of the Earth's surface,[4] and is vital for all known forms of life.[5] On Earth, 96.5% of the planet's water is found in seas and oceans, 1.7% in groundwater, 1.7% in glaciers and the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, a small fraction in other large water bodies, and 0.001% in the air as vapor, clouds (formed of solid and liquid water particles suspended in air), and precipitation.[6][7] Only 2.5% of the Earth's water is freshwater, and 98.8% of that water is in ice and groundwater. Less than 0.3% of all freshwater is in rivers, lakes, and the atmosphere, and an even smaller amount of the Earth's freshwater (0.003%) is contained within biological bodies and manufactured products.[6] Water on Earth moves continually through the water cycle of evaporation and transpiration (evapotranspiration), condensation, precipitation, and runoff, usually reaching the sea. Evaporation and transpiration contribute to the precipitation over land. Safe drinking water is essential to humans and other lifeforms even though it provides no calories or organic nutrients. Access to safe...

...Name: Xiaoqian Bi Course: World Society in Literature and Film 0868 (01) Professor: Dr. Srimati Mukerjee Date: 6 March 2014 The Symbolism of Water in the Film Water In the film Water, water is an extremely important element and has been given multiple symbolic meanings. There is rain and river as well as drinking water. The symbolic meanings of different kinds of water vary. The Ganges is probably the most obvious and important form of water in the film. In the film, India is divided by Ganges into two totally different worlds: on one side of the Ganges, in a widow house, a group of widows are imprisoned by traditions of the religion and live a life of self-denial to atone for the sin of having lost their husbands; on the other side of the river, the Brahman which is the highest of the four Hindu castes has the privilege of interpreting the religion unceremoniously to gain sexual gratifications. However, the Ganges also connects these two worlds as Kalyani is sent across the river to serve as a prostitute. So the Ganges, to widows, is the holy water which one would desire at her dying moment. But it is simply a “green channel” for Brahman to gain their sexual gratifications. It is this holy water that bring Kalyani troubles of not being able to marry Narayan. On the other hand, the rain, another essential form of water in the film, brings Kalyani unexpected love. In the sequence that Narayan meets Kalyani because of an “accident”, it rains heavily. The rain not only...

...Water - The new gold The following was inspired by Chapter 1 Case In Point “The Rising Cost of Energy” Imagine a world where countries fought over natural resources rather than rare resources like gold and silver. Depict a city where you can buy anything with water. Picture a life where water is no longer abundant. Visualize a time where water is worth more than anything in the world and only the privileged few can obtain them easily. Water is one of the essential resources needed for life on Earth. Every organism needs it to survive. For humans, going three days without water could mean death. While the Earth is composed of more than 70 percent of water but less than three percent are drinkable water. This means that water is an exhaustible resource. Although exhaustible, humans have been using water constantly for reasons other than drinking it. Water have been used to grow plants, water the front yard of their houses, wash cars, and other non-essential needs for survival. Water in first world countries have been wasted endlessly while third world countries lack of water are the cause of deaths for some. We live in a world where people do not realize the worth of water even though an imminent doom is approaching as water supply dwindles. For example, Texas water demands vs. supply, as depicted in the graph below, shows that demand for water will increase by 22 percent in 2060 but the supply of water will decrease by ten percent. A historic drought is...

...The Water Wheel The water wheel has helped to shape modern society because it was one of the earliest machines. It dates back to dates Before Christ. Once it was being used its popularity grew fast and spread quickly. At first there was no real engineering but a wheel with paddles in the center. It was first used to for grinding grains. As people used it for more things like driving sawmills and pumps, they also looked for ways to make the water wheel more efficient. They created the overshot wheel, the undershot wheel, and the breast wheel. The designs were for different uses and generated different amount of horsepower depending on the user’s needs. They also started making water wheels out of cast iron. People were always looking for ways to make it more efficient and some inventions were very successful like the cast-iron gearing which brought all wood construction to an end. Since they were always looking for more efficient ways this also brought to people inventing turbines and even windmills. Even now a days small companies use water wheels instead of turbines because they are more affordable and the payback is greater. They are also very affordable to maintain. If it wasn’t for this early machine that started it all maybe we wouldn’t have evolved so fast in this technology. Maybe they would have been grinding grains by hand for a couple hundred years more. Hydro-electric dams are descendants from water wheels, as they also take advantage of the movement of water......

...Introduction Zimbabwe is a country in the south of africa. It was endepentend since 1980. A lot of things have of late been happening in Zimbabwe that has led to deterioration of infrasturactural development in both urban and rural areas. Mbire Rural District Council Mbire Rural Council is one of the largest councils in Mashonaland Central province, with a population of 114909.The major ethnic groups residing in Korekore. There is a traditional structure of leadership that has remained intact and that continues to be influential. The population consists mostly of subsistence farmers whose fields are distant from the main village. Crops grown include sorghum, millet, corn, peanuts, sweet potatoes and pumpkins. * Problem Statement * The majority of rural households in Mbire Rural district council do not have access to potable drinking water. While many rural towns once had piped water, these systems have fallen into disrepair due to lack of maintenance. Similarly, a few villages had drilled wells with hand pumps near schools and clinics but have lost this infrastructure. Therefore, rural populations draw their water from unprotected springs or rivers located from 300 to 600 meters from the villages or from hand-dug wells, locally known as matsime. The matsime are primitive wells with an average depth of six meters, with a diameter of 1.2 meters and uncovered at the top. The water collected from rivers and matsime is used for bathing, washing clothes, cooking and...

...Water The chemical formula of water is H2O. This means two hydrogen atoms are joined to one oxygen atom to make up each molecule of water. The two electrons in each oxygen-hydrogen bond are not shared equally. They are more strongly attracted to the oxygen atom, making it a polar molecule. One of the most important results of this charge separation is that water forms hydrogen bonds. The slightly negative oxygen atom of one water molecule will attract to the slightly positive hydrogen atoms of other water molecules in a weak electrostatic attraction called a hydrogen bond. This means that the molecules of water will ‘stick together’ more than you otherwise might expect, because although each individual hydrogen bond is weak, there are a great number of them. Water also has relatively high melting and boiling points compared with other substances that have molecules of a similar size. This is because it takes more energy to overcome the attractive forces of the numerous hydrogen bonds. Water is a liquid and so cannot be compressed. This incompressibility means it is an important factor in many hydraulic mechanisms in living organisms. One of the major functions of water in living organism is its use as a solvent. Water is a Polar solvent and is thus slightly ionised meaning other polar molecules such as salts, sugars and amino acids will dissolve readily in water. This allows water to be used for the transportation of such substances in the...

...As an aside, Mpemba was mocked by his teacher for claiming hot water freezes faster than cold water because it seemed to contradict thermodynamics. Moral of the story? Don't be so fast to dismiss the observations of a non-scientist just because they don't agree with what you think you know. In fact, that lesson probably applies to most academic disciplines and, perhaps, all of human knowledge. Skepticism of people's claims is important. The Mpemba effect occurs when two bodies of water, identical in every way, except that one is at a higher temperature than the other, are exposed to identical subzero surroundings, and the initially hotter water freezes first. The effect appears theoretically impossible at first sight. Nevertheless, it has been observed in numerous experiments, and we will see that it is in fact possible. Readers who are quite certain that the effect is forbidden by the laws of thermodynamics should pause for a moment to do two things. First, to try to explain, as precisely as possible, why it is impossible. And second, to decide how to respond to a non-scientist who insists that they have observed the Mpemba effect in a home experiment. Whether or not the effect is real, careful consideration of these tasks will bring up a wealth of important issues about the scientific method, that can be understood and discussed by students without any knowledge of advanced physics... To see how the effect might occur, it is useful to carefully think about why...

...Water Life on earth evolved in water, and all life still depends on water. At least 80% of the mass of living organisms is water and almost all chemical reactions of life take place in aqueous solution. Water molecules are charged, with the oxygen atom being slightly negative and the hydrogen atoms being slightly positive. These opposite attract each other, forming hydrogen bonds. These are weak, long distance bonds that are very common and very important in biology. Water has a number of Important properties essential for life. * Excellent Solvent- Because it is charged water is a very good solvent.Charged molecules such as salts, sugars, amino acids dissolve readily in water and are called hydrophilic. Uncharged molecules such as lipids do not dissolve so well in water and are called hydrophobic. * High Specific heat capacity- Water has a specific heat capacity of 4.2 J g-1 oC-1, which means that it takes 4.2 joules of energy to heat 1g of water by 1oC. This is unusually high and it means that water does not change temperature easily. This minimises fluctuations in temperature inside cells and it also means that sea temperature is quite constant. * Latent heat of vaporisation- Water requires a lot of energy to change state from a liquid to a gas, and this is made use of a cooling mechanism in animals (sweating and panting) and plants (transpiration). As water evaporates it extracts heats from the surrounding area, cooling the organism * Latent heat...
