Title: Exercise When Young Provides Lifelong Benefits to Bone Structure and Strength

Abstract

Short-term exercise in growing rodents provided lifelong benefits to bone structure, strength, and fatigue resistance. Consequently, exercise when young may reduce the risk for fractures later in life, and the old exercise adage of 'use it or lose it' may not be entirely applicable to the skeleton.

  • An automated acid-reaction kinetics tester (ARKT) was developed and used to evaluate various retarded-acid systems. Studies of several commercially available acid retarders reveal that some functioned by depositing hydrophobic films on carbonate surfaces while others were foaming agents that stabilized a CO{sub 2} foam barrier on the rock surface. In the absence of filter-cake development, viscosity imparted by the addition of gelling agents had little effect on reaction rate. Emulsification of acid was shown to reduce reaction rate, with the greatest retardation provided by oil-external acid emulsions.
  • In a commercial dehydrogenation process, the catalyst is either continuously regenerated or regenerated at least a few times a day. The requirement for continuous or frequent regeneration of the commercial dehydrogenation process significantly contributes to the cost and complexity to construct and operate dehydrogenation plants. Maxofin, a new process to dehydrogenate C{sub 3}-C{sub 5}, parafffins, shows promising improvements in catalyst stability, says its developers, Mobil R&D Corp. and Kinetics Technology International.
  • Ozone plays a paradoxical part in a hydro plant. On the one hand, the colorless gas is a potent threat to safe and efficient operation of generating units. Even small quantities of ozone can hurt plant workers` respiratory systems and corrode generator windings. Looked at from another perspective, however, ozone is a potentially valuable tool for monitoring the condition of generating machinery. Ozone (O{sub 3}) is produced when molecular oxygen (O{sub 2}) decomposes, freeing single oxygen atoms to combine with paired ones. In air-cooled generators, this reaction is triggered by slot discharge, arcing brushes, and other forms of corona activity.more » Whatever the specific cause, it`s a safe assumption that if any significant level of ozone is present in a hydroelectric plant, something is wrong.« less
  • A survey of efforts to improve the high-temperature and fire characteristics of control wire for petrochemical refining and other hot process control systems covers some of the factors leading to the search for improved fire characteristics, such as New York City fire laws; the lack of clear standards for fire alarm and other high-temperature applications; standards for nuclear powerplant wire and cable; tests by Du Pont of Tefzel fluoropolymer insulation in flames of 210,000 and 400,000 Btu/hr; and high-temperature applications for control wire insulated with Tefzel or Teflon, such as blast furnaces, nuclear control, transportation control, and fire alarm service.more » Fuel and smoke factors for cables with primary insulation and jackets made of various combinations of PVC, Teflon, silicone rubber, and polyethylene are tabulated.
