The Prophetic Anti-Gallic Letters: Adam Thom and the Hidden Roots of The Dominion of Canada

Fran Deschamps & Adam Thom

The Prophetic Anti-Gallic Letters: Adam Thom and the Hidden Roots of The Dominion of Canada by Fran Deschamps & Adam ThomThe Anti-Gallic Letters by Adam Thom was published in 1836 based on Thom's editorials in Montreal Herald written under the pseudonym "Camillus" in the previous two years. They were never reprinted, despite their importance and above all for the people for whom Thom was the public voice. More than an anti-French, anti-Republican tract, The Anti-Gallic Letters are crucial to understanding how British North America mutated into the Dominion of Canada in 1867

Developing a Stress-Test to Assess Drinking Water Distribution Systems Under Changing Demand

Claudia Agudelo-Vera & Mirjam Blokker

Developing a Stress-Test to Assess Drinking Water Distribution Systems Under Changing Demand by Claudia Agudelo-Vera & Mirjam BlokkerThe drinking water distribution system (DWDS) is a critical infrastructure and a costly asset with a life time of several decades. With rapidly changing urban environments and increasing technological innovation, drinking water demand is likely to change in the coming decades. However, quantifying these changes involves large uncertainties. This book develops a methodology to analyse the robustness of the DWDS to deal with a wide range of future water demands.

A stress test was developed to investigate the effects of a set of demand scenarios on the network performance. In a first stage ten...

Nutrient Speciation and Refractory Compounds in Water Quality Models by David ClarkWater quality modeling efforts are designed to provide an understanding of watershed conditions to support management efforts that include control of point and nonpoint sources (NPS). Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) speciation is an important area of nutrient research, both in terms of biodegradability in wastewater treatment and bioavailability in the water environment. Water quality modeling may not be reflecting all that is known about point source effluent N and P from treatment facilities that reduce the total amount of nutrients discharged and also change N and P speciation and reduce...

Next Generation Tools for Assessing Death and Decay of Critical Wastewater Bacteria by Amy PrudenThis work used a combination of traditional microbiological and molecular approaches and modeling to advance understanding of decay processes in wastewater treatment. The overall goal was to support improved design and quality control of nitrification and pathogen inactivation processes considerate of more precise estimates of decay parameters.

Pathogen and indicator decay experiments were framed with respect to USPEA time-temperature requirements in biosolids. Non-specific molecular methods, such as ATP and live/dead staining, were informative in pure culture but were not suitable as a proxy...

Identification of the 'Active' Fraction and Metabolic Pathways in Trace Organic Contaminants Removal Using Stable Isotope Probin

Kartik Chandran

Identification of the 'Active' Fraction and Metabolic Pathways in Trace Organic Contaminants Removal Using Stable Isotope Probin by Kartik ChandranThe widespread presence of trace organic contaminants (TOrC), such as the endocrine disrupting compound bisphenol-A (BPA), has been cause for growing concern due to persistence in the environment and potential ecological impacts. Despite progress made in understanding the removal of TOrC in biological wastewater treatment processes, there is still a lack of consensus regarding the identity of microorganisms active in biodegradation and the exact removal mechanisms involved. This research aimed to develop a clear understanding of the microbial 'active' fraction in activated sludge which is responsible...

Most of these facilities are located in coastal areas where the RO concentrate can be discharged with relative ease through existing ocean outfalls. Implementation of RO-based projects at inland locations can be challenging because of the environmental difficulty and high cost of disposing the waste stream generated by the RO process. The purpose of this research project was to evaluate, on...

Advances in Recovering Plasmids from Wastewater: A State of the Science

Kevin Gilmore & Samuel Jeyanayagam & Wendell Khunjar

Advances in Recovering Plasmids from Wastewater: A State of the Science by Kevin Gilmore & Samuel Jeyanayagam & Wendell KhunjarPlasmids are small rings of double stranded DNA that are found in all three domains of life: the Bacteria, the Archaea, and the Eukarya. Plasmids encode for proteins that provide their host organisms multiple abilities, such as the ability to transfer genetic information, degrade xenobiotic compounds, resist antibiotics, and outcompete other cells. Plasmids are similar in size to viruses, mostly in the submicron size range; however, plasmid size is normally described by the number of DNA base pairs as opposed to the physical size.

Although plasmids are found in all three domains of life, plasmids...

Guidelines for Engineered Storage for Direct Potable Reuse

Andrew Salveson & Shane Snyder & Linda Macpherson

Guidelines for Engineered Storage for Direct Potable Reuse by Andrew Salveson & Shane Snyder & Linda MacphersonDirect potable reuse (DPR) is the planned introduction of recycled water either directly into a public water system or into a raw water supply immediately upstream of a water treatment plant. DPR has inherent risks that differ from treatment of traditional source waters and conventional indirect potable reuse (IPR). In particular, DPR is a more closely coupled system, in which there is less time to monitor process water quality and respond to water quality concerns. This study evaluates how to replace the environmental buffer with engineered storage, called the engineered storage buffer (ESB)....

Guidelines for Utilities Wishing to Conduct Pilot-Scale Demonstrations by Lori Stone & Wendell KhunjarAs stewards of public funds, Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) can be conservative in their approach to new technologies and processes, which hinders the advancement of technology and limits beneficial returns. This reluctance can be overcome by reducing perceived complexity surrounding pilot-scale projects, and by demonstrating applicable technologies, costs, and logistics. Sharing and documenting the lessons learned from conducting demonstration projects can encourage utilities to consider new technologies and increase confidence in decision-making.

Commentary on the Sentences: Philosophy of God

R. E. Houser & Timothy B. Noone

Commentary on the Sentences: Philosophy of God by R. E. Houser & Timothy B. Noone

Without exception, every word of philosophy Bonaventure ever wrote is contained in works explicitly religious-in sermons, works of spiritual direction, and theology. For this reason, we begin by looking at Bonaventure's conception of theology and the place of philosophical reasoning within it. In his attempt to present a theology that is a "science" which leads us to "wisdom," Bonaventure uses language that might at first glance seem to be merely metaphorical. But Bonaventure's care in making his language precise and philosophical in understanding God is a tribute to the optimism the greatest...

Haixia Lan

Aristotle and Confucius on Rhetoric and Truth: The Form and the Way by Haixia Lan

The current study argues that different cultures can coexist better today if we focus not only on what separates them but also on what connects them.

Brian D. Joseph

Morphology and Universals in Syntactic Change: Evidence from Medieval and Modern Greek by Brian D.

This title will be of interest to students of language and linguistics.

Mark West

The Fabric Formwork Book: Methods for Building New Architectural and Structural Forms in Concrete by Mark West

Concrete is the most used man-made material in the world and is the fundamental physical medium for most of the world's architecture and construction.
