The visualization of latent fingerprints often involves the use of a chemical substance that creates a contrast between the fingerprint residues and the surface on which the print was deposited. The chemical-aided visualization techniques can be divided into two main categories: those that chemically react with the fingerprint residue and those that adhere to the fingerprint residue by intermolecular forces. A plethora of empirically effective fingerprint revelation methods have been developed but the chemistry is often incompletely understood. This article briefly describes the chemical rationale of most fingerprint visualization techniques practiced today. This material is suitable for a forensic chemistry course or for an introductory chemistry course to introduce the relevance of chemistry in law enforcement. This material may also apply to an organic or biochemistry course when discussing noncovalent intermolecular interactions. © 2014 The American Chemical Society and Division of Chemical Education, Inc.

Augmented reality (AR) technology has implications for the ways that the field of library and information science (LIS) serves users and organizes information. Through content analysis, the author examined how AR is conceptualized within a sample of LIS literature from the Library, Information Science and Technology Abstracts (LISTA) database and Google Blogs postings. The author also examined whether Radical Change Theory (RCT) and the digital]age principles of interactivity, connectivity, and access are present in the discussion of this technology. The analysis of data led to the identification of 14 categories comprising 132 total codes across sources within the data set. The analysis indicates that the conceptualization of AR, while inconsistent, suggests expectations that the technology will enhance the user experience. This can lead to future examinations of user behavior, response, and observation of technologies like AR. Source

This article describes two different latent fingerprint revelation activities that have similar organization structures and pedagogy methodologies. The two activities feature the use of multiple stations to allow students to test, compare, and contrast different fingerprint revelation techniques. Both activities adopt a structured-inquiry pedagogical methodology that invites students to form their own opinions on the strengths and weaknesses of each technique. Fingerprint dusting techniques are more accessible because there is less need for fume hoods and protective safety equipment. The chemical revelation of latent prints techniques are more suited for a laboratory environment where fume hoods and protective safety equipment are available. © 2014 The American Chemical Society and Division of Chemical Education, Inc.

Early mortality is a significant concern for patients initiating dialysis. Nutrition and exercise are two factors that affect mortality rates that can be significantly influenced by a successful partnership between the healthcare team and the patient. This article provides an overview of current data on the importance of appropriate nutritional and exercise regimens for patients initiating dialysis, as well as tips for how nurses and other members of the healthcare team can work to incrementally improve these components of care.

Anaerobic digestion has been modeled as a two-stage process using coupled chemostat models with non-monotone growth functions, [9]. This study incorporates the effects of an external toxin. After reducing the model to a 3-dimensional system, global stability of boundary and interior equilibria is proved using differential inequalities and comparisons to the corresponding toxin-free model. Conditions are given under which the behavior of the toxinfree model is preserved. Introduction of the toxin results in additional patterns such as bistabilities of coexistence steady states or of a periodic orbit and an interior steady state. Source
