APPLICATION OF THE ANALYTIC HIERARCHY PROCESS (AHP) FOR ACOUSTIC ADAPTATION OF CLASSROOMS

In the paper we put forward a proposition of acoustic adaptation of classrooms based on the analytical hierarchy process (AHP). The main objective of such an adaptation is to increase speech intelligibility aiming to enhance the teaching quality level. The model is based on four main criteria which have impact both on the teaching process and on the adaptation costs. The said criteria comprise reverberation time, speech transmission index STI, financial cost of the adaptation and non-economic

Biochemical and Molecular Characterization of a Native Haloalkalophilic Tolerant Strain from the Texcoco Lake

In the last decade several new genera have been isolated in alkaline and halophile growth conditions. The studies conducted in the Texcoco Lake soils have shown a generalized microbial adaptation to the specific conditions. In this research work, morphological and phylogenetic characterization of the HN31(22) strain that was isolated from the cited soil is presented. The strain was identified as a Gram-positive halophile and alkaline tolerant bacteria from the Nesterenkonia genus, which uses

Natural Hazards, Climate Change, and Adaptation: Persistent Questions and Answers

and other national studies, we learned that developing countries had much greater hazard deaths rates and industrialized countries had much larger economic losses. Adding in the costs of adaptation effort to prevent these losses gave us an overall social cost, and as the percentage of per capita GNP current at the time, the burden on the developing countries was much greater than that of the industrialized countries. Now forty years later, human-induced climate change that we did not consider in

Towards sustainability: The feasibility of a sustainability hub in Clare and the Mid North, South Australia

Sustainability is frequently referenced in association with climate change adaptation using new methods and technologies, signifying the ability of people to meet the social, economic, and environmental needs of existing and future generations without exhausting natural resources or degrading the quality of the natural environmental; sustainability is central to global resource conservancy. Local governments are in a primary position to address these goals and indeed across Australia are

Climate change adaptation for peri-urban horticulture: a case study of the Adelaide Hills apple and pear industry

Despite a growing body of climate change adaptation research, translating findings into action remains a challenge. The need for early intervention looms as a significant problem for horticulture industries in Australia’s peri-urban regions where competing demands for resources generate land use conflicts. Tools and methods that help stakeholders and decision-makers understand climate risks and adaptation options at a more strategic level provide a mechanism to bridge the gap between

A LOGISTIC SERVICE MODEL FOR DISABLED PERSONS IN MOBILITY BY TOWN-SERVICE BUSES

The paper dwells on the methodology for assessing the efficiency of transport services in transportation of disabled people on the local urban regular bus routes. Proposed methodology is based on the level of organization of transport system and logistics approaches and principles for determining the quality of adaptation to requirements of disabled people transportation. The paper describes the identification of the conditions for coordination of regular urban bus routes for disabled persons

Due to the existing housing structure in Poland, people with disabilities tend to live in premises from the earlier periods (pre-1994). The vast majority of these are buildings constructed in a pre-fab concrete slabtechnology. The aim of the paper is to demonstrate that virtually all apartments, both those built before 1995 as well as the newer buildings built after that date, require adaptation measures in terms of accessibility

Cross-Cultural Adaptation of the KONTAKT Social Skills Group Training Program for Children and Adolescents with high-functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder: A feasibility Study

Social skills group training is an intervention method that has demonstrated moderate evidence of improvement among children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). KONTAKT is a manualized social skills group training program that was developed in Germany and that has demonstrated preliminary evidence of positive effect. In this study, we describe its adaptation to Scandinavian settings.The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical feasibility of the Swedish version of KONTAKT

Changes in the functional diversity of activated sludge during the adaptation in the lab-scale were verified. It was found that the acclimatization process plays a crucial role in sludge adaptation to the laboratory environment. In addition, it has been shown that subjecting the excess sludge to

The Spring Loaded “Willins” Cane

A description of a long cane handle adaptation that reduced the jarring movement experienced when contacting an object. Initially designed to allow a woman with arthritis and tendonitis to use her cane, this ‘Willins’ cane has also been used by those moving over uneven ground as well as individuals simply wishing for smoother cane travel. Instructions are provided to create the cane handle.

A NON-LINEAR SHAPED ARCHITECTURE IN URBAN SPACE

The paper deals with the modernization and adaptation to the new features of existing objects in the urban fabric. In the twenty-first century the digital design tools, which are interfaced with the production of computer technology, have opened the new opportunities that not only are shaping the architectural objects, but also interferencing in the buildings’ structures. The selected objects are examined, which have been implemented in the European cities centers, and the new design approaches

ALICYCLOBACILLUS – BACTERIA STILL NOT UNDERSTOOD

bacteria, the typical juice pasteurization conditions can stimulate spore germination. This is the reason why they can proliferate in juice and ipso facto cause fruit products spoilage. The family of Alicyclobacillaceae has continuously been modified and each successive year brings new species. Additionally, A. acidoterrestris is recognized as bacterium with a high evolution rate due to its rapid adaptation to changing environmental conditions.

Anhedonia but not passive floating is an indicator of depressive‑like behavior in two chronic stress paradigms

corticosterone in the blood and brain structures involved in stress‑response did not differ from control in both experiments. The absence of significant changes in corticosterone levels and passive floating may be indicative of the adaptation of animals to chronic stress. Anhedonia appears to be a more sensitive indicator of depressive‑like behavioral effects of chronic stress as compared to behavior in the forced swim or open field tests.
