UAB School of Dentistry

The University of Alabama School of Dentistry is the public dental school located at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, United States. The dental school is the only dental school in Alabama; the UAB School of Dentistry, a unit of the Medical Center of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, was created by an act of the state legislature in 1945, the same year that the School of Medicine moved to Birmingham from the university campus in Tuscaloosa and became a four-year school. The School of Dentistry admitted its first class of students in October 1948. In addition to its first professional degree program, the school offers accredited postdoctoral programs in twelve areas of study; the development of "four-handed dentistry" and the expanded utilization of trained auxiliary personnel were pioneered at this institution. From 2012 through 2015 the School was ranked first in research funding from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research; the clinical facilities of the School of Dentistry Building include clinical teaching space and lecture halls.

Library facilities include the Lister Hill Library of the Health Sciences and the Hammonds Reading Room. The Lister Hill Library is located adjacent to the basic science facility and offers a full range of comfortable accommodations for reading and study; the library collection now contains more than 255,000 volumes and includes subscriptions to the world's leading biomedical journals, with some 2,800 titles available. The library offers many computerized services; the computerized integrated catalog, DYNIX, the full MEDLINE service are available from home or office by telephone. A microcomputer lab is available for faculty use. Other services include interlibrary loans, photocopying and instructional services, search capabilities to a large number of on-line and compact disc databases. American Student Dental Association

Gonow

Gonow is a Chinese manufacturer of automobiles, commercial vehicles and SUV's headquartered in Taizhou, Zhejiang and a subsidiary of GAC Group. It markets its products as Gonow in other markets; the company was founded on 27 September 2003 with headquarters in Zhejiang. The campus covers an area of 268,000 m². Production began with an initial phase of 60,000 units produced. Gonow spent 351.5 million RMB expanding its grounds by 100 acres, increasing production to 200,000 units per year. They began cooperation with Wuhan University of Technology, taking over construction of the Gonow Automobile R&D Center. In 2006, Gonow entered the European Union market, in a joint venture with the Italian company DR Motor Company SpA. Two SUV models were produced under license, were marketed under the brand name Katay Gonow. On 24 October 2010, Gonow was the first Chinese car to score points in a FIA world championship, with its Italian Team Sonia Ielo – Francesca Olivoni taking 8th place in the Ecorally San MarinoVatican City of the FIA Alternative Energies Cup.

In 2010, Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. bought 51% of Gonow. Gonow announced in March 2015 that the company will start concentrating on constructing Trumpchi vehicles, raising anger from its dealers since the unsold Gonow vehicles and spare parts were mortgaged by various banks. In 2015, GAC Group announced. It's been reported that the 49% stake of Gonow will be purchased and will halt further production/sales in 2016 due to problems in committing to aftermarket sales and production/delivery of its vehicles to Gonow dealers.

Sable Chemicals

Sable Chemical Industries Limited is the sole manufacturer of ammonium nitrate in Zimbabwe. Located in Kwekwe, Sable Chemical Industries Limited is Zimbabwe's sole manufacturer of nitrogen-based fertilizer, ammonium nitrate; the company was incorporated in 1965 and started operations in 1969 using ammonia, a key raw material in the fertilizer making process, which at that time was imported through Sasol, South Africa. In 1972, Sable commissioned its own ammonia production facility via electrolysis of water; this saw the import quota reduce to 30% of total raw materials required to make AN. The nameplate capacity of the plant is 240,000 tonnes per annum of AN. An air separation process is used to separate nitrogen from air for downstream use in the ammonia making process. By-products in the form of gaseous and liquid oxygen as well as small quantities of liquid nitrogen are formed. Five basic unit operations make up the air separation process: air compression, air purification, heat exchange and distillation.

Nitrogen is compressed to 30 bar prior to export to the ammonia making plant. The purpose of the water electrolysis process is to produce hydrogen for use in ammonia making; the process consists of 14 electrolytic units. Electrolysis of water at Sable is a process whereby 6.5 kA direct current is applied across each electrolytic unit to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen both at 35 °C and 30 bar. An electrolyte consisting of 25% wt/wt potassium hydroxide, the other part being demineralised water, is used as feed to the electrolytic units. 90 MW are required to run all electrolytic units at capacity. The ammonia making process is used for the manufacture of nitric acid and ammonium nitrate fertiliser. Using the Haber process, nitrogen from the air separation process and hydrogen water electrolysis are reacted over an iron catalyst at 320 bar and 520 °C to produce ammonia gas. Ammonia is liquefied and pumped to one of the two 1,000 storage spheres; the nitric acid process produces nitric acid for use in making ammonium nitrate fertiliser.

Using the Ostwald process, ammonia is vaporised and oxidised over a 95% platinum and 5% rhodium catalyst at 930 °C and 6.5 bar to form nitric oxide and superheated steam. The reaction gases are cooled to 38 °C before absorption by various heat recovery mechanisms; the cooled reaction gases are passed through the bottom of an absorption column where a stream of air is added to oxidise nitric oxide to nitrogen dioxide. As the nitrogen dioxide passes up the column, it is absorbed by a stream of water flowing from the top of the absorption column to yield the desired product, stored for downstream use; the ammonium nitrate making process is a neutralisation process consisting of a reaction between ammonia and nitric acid. Ammonia is vaporised and sparged through a proportionate amount of nitric acid to make an 83% wt/wt ammonium nitrate solution; the solution is concentrated to a 99% melt by vaporising water using two evaporators in series. 0.6% magnesium oxide is added to the melt. The melt is pumped to the top of a prill tower into a prill pot from which it is sprayed against an approaching stream of air from the bottom of the tower, in the process making solid ammonium nitrate prills.

These prills are coated with a 0.15% dolomite-based coating agent prior to bagging and dispatch. In 2010 Sable initiated the Clean Development Mechanism project in response to the growing concern over the environment, the first of its type in Zimbabwe. "The Clean Development Mechanism, defined in Article 12 of the Protocol, allows a country with an emission-reduction or emission-limitation commitment under the Kyoto Protocol to implement an emission-reduction project in developing countries. Such projects can earn saleable certified emission reduction credits, each equivalent to one tonne of CO2, which can be counted towards meeting Kyoto targets."The project is intended to reduce the emissions of nitrous oxide, a crucial greenhouse gas, from one of the Sable processes. MGM Innova and DNV Climate Change Services, consultants in CDM projects development and validation, were engaged and carried out a detailed feasibility study up to the registration of the project with the CDM Executive Board in 2012.

Standard Bank will fund the $6m required and will recover their investment through sale of CER credits. Sable has been working on reengineering its ammonia producing process whose completion is predicted to come to light in the near future; this route will result in Sable retiring the energy consuming electrolysis process, thus releasing up to 115 MW into the grid for other electricity consumers. Gasification of coal to produce hydrogen will be used to substitute the current process of electrolysis of water. Official website

Meanwood

Meanwood is a suburb and former village in north-east Leeds, West Yorkshire, England. The area sits in the Moortown ward of Leeds City Council and Leeds North East parliamentary constituency; the name Meanwood goes back to the 12th century, is of Anglo-Saxon derivation: the Meene wude was the boundary wood of the Manor of Alreton, the woods to the east of Meanwood Beck. Dwellings and farms near the wood were known by a variety of names including Meanwoodside until 27 August 1847 when the parish of Meanwood was established and the woods became known Meanwood Woods. A skirmish, between Royalist and Parliamentarian forces, took place in Meanwood, during the Civil War, it is said that the "beck ran red", with the blood of the fallen, the place name "Stainbeck". The Meanwood Valley was a place of industry as long ago as 1577 and it continued to the 19th century; the Meanwood Beck provided water and power for corn and paper mills, dye works and tanneries. There were numerous quarries. In 1830 a turnpike road was established through the Meanwood Valley to Leeds.

Public transport followed from 1850 and electric trams in 1890, meaning that it was practical for people to travel to work from greater distances, encouraging both industrial buildings and housing. The 1841 census listed 144 houses, including Meanwood Hall and Whalley House. Most properties were stone cottages, now gone, with the exception of a few houses on Monkbridge Road. Hustler's Row remains as a group of 1850 stone cottages named after a quarry owner. To the west along the road towards Meanwood Park are some houses built for tannery workers and the Meanwood Institute, built about 1820, but opened as the Institute in 1885, a Grade II listed building. Sugarwell Court on Meanwood Road, is the former Cliff Tannery, an 1866 Grade II listed building converted into a university hall of residence. Nearby is a former Baptist school, a brick Grade II listed building dating from about 1886. There are a number of 19th-century industrial buildings in Meanwood Valley along the Meanwood Beck, 19th century terraced housing on the valley side leading to Headingley and Woodhouse, along with an area of woodland known locally as the Ridge.

New estates have been built with grand, suburban housing, the Woodleas, the Stonegates and the Bowoods. 20th century council housing mixed with open space forms the opposite side of the valley leading up to Scott Hall. There is a shopping centre opposite a Waitrose Food & Home store on Green Road, near the site of a tannery, believed to date from 1700. Meanwood Hall is a grade II listed building, it was built about 1762 for Thomas Denison, extended in 1814 for Joseph Lees, further developed in 1834 for Christopher Beckett. In 1919 it was bought by the city council to form the nucleus of Meanwood Park Hospital which accommodated men and children with learning disabilities, it served the city of Leeds and other areas of the West Riding of Yorkshire, at its maximum extent in the 1960s had 841 beds. After the hospital closed in 1997, the hall was converted to housing, further housing developments now fill the hospital grounds. In the middle of an estate of inter-war semi-detached houses behind Stonegate Road stands a Victorian Gothic house, Meanwood Towers.

Designed by Edward Welby Pugin, built in 1866-67. A private house, it was commissioned by Thomas Stuart Kennedy and was called Meanwood House. Kennedy commissioned the German organ-builder Edmund Schulze to build him a pipe organ. In 1869, it was installed in a specially-built 800-seat wooden concert hall or'organ house'. After eight years, there were problems with the organ house and the Schulze organ was loaned to St. Peter's Church and two years in 1879, it was sold and presented to St. Bartholomew's Church, Armley. In keeping with its grand design, the house was built with tall chimneys, but in 1969 these were shortened for safety reasons. Most of the original house converted into flats. Carr Manor was a 17th-century manor house sometimes known as Carr House, it was extended 1880-81 by architect Edward Schroeder Prior for Thomas Clifford Allbutt. It was used by the City of Leeds as a residence for judges during trials at Leeds Crown Court, but is now private dwellings. Carr Manor gives its name to a 1950s estate of a primary and high school.

Early photographs show the Model Farm, which occupied the hillside, with fields in which rhubarb was grown. The area hosted Sugarwell Hill Mill which had a distinctive round chimney. In 1919, 80 acres of land to the south of Meanwood, close to Woodhouse Ridge, was sold by the Model Farm to Leeds Corporation; the Farm Hill housing estate was developed on the land. The area was referred to informally as the'white houses' because of the colour the concrete was rendered; the estate became a concentration of bad press for Meanwood quickly. Most of the original houses were demolished in the late 1980s and many of the residents were moved to the Beckhill estate; the opening credits to police drama Parkin's Patch began with a scene shot at Farm Hill. The area was redeveloped in 1990 as a series of two- and three-bedroom semi-detached houses and bungalows, around half of which are owned. A few of the original 1920s houses remain on the fringes of the estate; the Model Farm, after which the hillside and estate is named, is still standing today with a number of fields used as pasture for horses.

Many of the streets in the area are still known as Farm Hill. The estate hosts the much newer Meanwood Valley Urban Farm. A network of woodland and field footpaths connect the estate to Potternewton Lane, Buslingthorpe Lane and Woodhouse Ridge. In 2000, a further estate of residential houses was b

Raunds Co-operative Society

Raunds Co-operative Society Limited was a consumer co-operative society based in Raunds, founded in 1891. The society operated a large supermarket and a department store in Raunds, as of 2007 held 350 acres of farmland at Northdale Farm, farming wheat and oilseed rape, it had 4,297 members in 2003. It was a subscriber to the Co-operative Party and a customer member of the Co-operative Wholesale Society. In 1983, it merged with the Ringstead Distributive Co-operative Society. In early 2007, directors of the society presented to members a plan to merge with the much large Midlands Co-operative Society, but it did not reach the required vote of two thirds of members when put to a special general meeting on 5 July 2007. However, a confirmatory meeting was held on 16 August and this time the vote to merge was carried; the two societies merged on 26 August 2007. Co-op Co-op UK The Co-operative Group

Clark Street Bridge

The Clark Street Bridge is a bascule bridge that spans the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, connecting the Near North Side with The Loop. The current bridge, completed in 1929, is the eighth bridge to span the river at this point. In 1853 the bridge was struck by a steamer, called the London, collapsed, blocking traffic on the river; the bridge was dredged and river traffic resumed on September 8, 1853. In 1854, the city approved an expenditure of $12,000 to replace the bridge with a pivot bridge. During the Lager Beer Riot in 1855, the bridge was pivoted to help contain the rioters. On June 26, 1907, the steamer Atlas sank, she was declared a total loss. The passenger ship SS Eastland was scheduled to sail from the dock at the Clark Street Bridge when she capsized on July 24, 1915, killing 844 people. In March 2012, an unidentified man jumped from the bridge and was rescued by local high school students on a field trip, he died of hypothermia. In 1916, Carl Sandburg wrote the poem "Clark Street Bridge."
