DeLorme is a producer of personal satellite tracking, messaging, and navigation technology. The company’s main product, inReach, is known for its integration of GPS and satellite technologies. inReach provides the ability to send and receive text messages anywhere in the world including when outside of cell phone range by using the Iridium satellite constellation. By pairing with a smart phone, navigation is possible with access to free downloadable topographic maps and NOAA charts.DeLorme also produces printed atlas and topographic software products. DeLorme combines digital technologies with human editors to individually verify travel information and map details to ensure accuracy. A DeLorme Atlas & Gazetteer is a complement to a vehicle’s GPS or online mapping site, because it allows a traveler to browse and highlight the anticipated route and the possible activities or excursions along the way or at the destination. Paper atlases continue to be a strong seller for DeLorme, with more than 20 million copies sold to date to travelers, recreational enthusiasts, and map lovers. DeLorme’s Topo software is one of the sources of North American trail, logging road and terrain data for outdoor enthusiasts. Topo 10 has US and Canada topographic maps and elevation data with more than four million places of interest in US and Canada. In addition to comprehensive park data, Topo includes high-detail lake, river and stream data for all 50 states.Founded in 1976, DeLorme is headquartered in Yarmouth, Maine, and is home to Eartha, the world's largest revolving globe.

Aim: Surveys conducted between July and September 2012 in Quebec vineyards revealed the presence of the spotted wing drosophila (SWD), Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, just before harvest. Methods and results: Red and white grapevine cultivars from four vineyards were surveyed for leafhoppers by using a tapping method. Unexpectedly, a total of 30 SWD adults were collected from red grapevine cultivars, i. e., Marechal Foch, Gamay and Seyval Noir. Furthermore, a total of 101 SWD emerged from bunches selected in these vineyards and placed under laboratory conditions. No SWD were found in white cultivars. Conclusion: This is the first mention of SWD in grapevines grown for wine in Quebec. Significance and impact of the study: Spreading of SDW across Quebec vineyards may lead to important yield losses. Insecticide treatments need to be adapted to address this new entomological challenge. © Vigne et Vin Publications Internationales (Bordeaux, France). Source

Experimental single-phase, condensation and flow boiling heat transfer data from the literature and our previous studies were collected to evaluate existing heat transfer correlations for microfin tubes of different geometries. The Ravigururajan and Bergles correlation modified by using the hydraulic diameter proposed by Li et al. (2012) can predict single-phase heat transfer data relatively well. Among the four reviewed condensation heat transfer correlations, the Yu and Koyama (1998) correlation presents the best prediction. However, all the four condensation correlations are prone to overpredict the carbon dioxide data. For flow boiling in microfin tubes, the general semiempirical correlation developed by Wu et al. (2013), applicable for intermittent and annular flow patterns, is the most reliable predictive method among the five evaluated correlations. It can predict 90% of the overall 754 data points within a ±30% error band, with a mean absolute deviation and a standard deviation equal to 18.2% and 21.9%, respectively, covering pure halogenated refrigerants, near azeotropic refrigerant mixtures, and carbon dioxide with the following applicable range: fin root diameter 2.1 to 14.8 mm, mass flux 100 to 800 kg/m2s, heat flux 4.5 to 59 kW/m2, and reduced pressure 0.07 to 0.7.

BACKGROUND: Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) water is a refreshing tropical drink whose international market has recently been growing. However, little is yet known about its physicochemical composition, particularly its aroma. This study set out to characterise the volatile profile of water from five coconut varieties. RESULTS: Aroma compounds were characterised by headspace solid phase microextraction gas chromatography (HS-SPME-GC) analysis. An experimental design was established to optimise SPME conditions, leading to an equilibration time of 10 min followed by an extraction time of 60 min at 50 °C. Accordingly, immature coconut water from WAT (West African Tall), PB121 (MYD × WAT Hybrid), MYD (Malayan Yellow Dwarf), EGD (Equatorial Guinea Green Dwarf) and THD (Thailand Aromatic Green Dwarf) palms was analysed and described. Ketones were mainly present in the Tall and Hybrid varieties, whereas aldehydes were most abundant in the Dwarf palms. Tall coconut water was characterised by a high lactone content. THD exhibited a high ethyl octanoate level. The cluster analysis of the volatile fraction from the five coconut cultivars was found to be related to their genetic classification. CONCLUSION: The volatile compounds of immature coconut water from five varieties were characterised for the first time. Volatile profile analysis could be a useful tool for the selection of Dwarf coconut varieties, which are mainly consumed as a beverage. © 2012 Society of Chemical Industry. Source
