History of Early Stone Sculpture at Mathura, CA. 150 BCE-100 CE

This quantity presents the 1st complete research and chronology of the earliest identified stone sculptures from the north Indian urban of Mathura, courting ahead of the recognized Kushan interval.

The sculptures caused by those pre-Kushan sessions show new proof for the explanations in the back of the emergence of the anthropomorphic photo of the Buddha at Mathura, the predominance of a heterodox sect of Jainism, and the proliferation of cults of nature divinities.

Activity-Centered Design: An Ecological Approach to Designing Smart Tools and Usable Systems (Acting with Technology)

The shift within the perform of human-computer interplay (HCI) layout from user-centered to context-based layout marks an important swap in concentration. With context-based layout, designers begin now not with a preconceived notion of what clients may still do, yet with an figuring out of what clients truly do.

This novel spray technology has the trademark µMist. Keywords: sprays, mists, Bombardier beetles, biomimetics, flash evaporation, pharmaceutical, fire extinguishers, fuel injectors. 1 Introduction Bombardier beetles have a very remarkable defence mechanism. They spray a hot irritant aqueous solution onto their predators. This is done by an ingenious mechanism such that an aqueous solution of quinones is heated up to above its boiling point (by means of exothermic catalytic chemical reactions) in a combustion chamber which remarkably is less than 1mm in size.

Droplets larger than this threshold are deposited in the upper respiratory system without having any therapeutic effects. The same very fine droplet sizes of this case can be ideal for fuel injectors since fuel droplets have to evaporate very quickly (in a few milliseconds) in an engine to increase the combustion efficiency and reduce some of the pollutants such as unburnt hydrocarbons, CO and soot. Current fuel injectors are only capable of atomising the fuel into droplets with a Dv90 of approximately 25–50µm (this droplet size is on the basis that 90% of the droplets are less than the quoted value.

A stereotaxis method was proposed and the instrument was developed, which allocates accurate, operates simple, commercializes at low-cost for it is compatible with standard stereotaxis instrument. Based on biological understanding, a bio-inspired gecko-like robot was developed and the characteristics of the mechanics were investigated. Locomotion of the gecko was modulated by implanting electrode into gecko’s middle brain and stimulating by wireless controlling system. J. et al. R. , Herrel A. , et al.
