Colony colapse disorder
However, the intensive use of these miticides has led to the development of their resistance by mites. To add an injury to this, toxicity tests conducted on bee hives have revealed that the levels of miticides in many bee hives has greatly increased (Mullen et al, 2010).Miticides are destructive to colonies of bees because they accumulate in bees wax. Bees wax is a least renewable resource in the hive hence it provides a base on which persistent pesticides can accumulate and cause toxic house

Make sure that wastes from different sources are not mixed as it can cause chemical reactions which, therefore, makes recycling and disposal difficult.6) Later on the waste should be categorized into two categories: recyclable and non-recyclable material. Since the waste primarily consists of office trash, it must have considerable amount of paper, bottles and newspaper etc. Waste is recyclable, if it is sent to be processed, while non-recyclable waste should be disposed of either through an

Electronic ballasts can add to this. This can be a problem because it will interfere with other electronics affected by linear distortion. The ideal is to be lower than 20% but 32% is acceptable. The only real thing you can do to reduce THD is to pay for electronic ballasts that produce less THD. This is viewed as a market problem, and manufactures will only make electronic ballasts with lower THD when the demand is there. Compact Fluorescents can have a range of up to 180% THD, but this

A Case Study of Sources of Air Quality Pollutants, Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Associated Action Plans at Bootle Docks
Since the mid-1980s environmental research has identified links between negative health consequences and existing air pollution levels. Traditionally, this pollution has been related to various forms of smog, smoke, and emissions relating to transportation. Part of the response to these conditions was the establishment of the Environment Agency with responsibility of industrial regulation. Over the course of two decades, the work of this agency has combined with European Union directives in

The disease can be prevented by reducing the amount of food tat is rationed daily which in turn reduces the amount of milk that is produced. This process has shown to yield excellent results within 7 days. There are also some other methods which are used for treatment and these include relieving of congestion by partially milking the rabbit and also massaging anti-inflammatory ointment around the affected breast area. This in turn will reduce the pain that is felt by the rabbit as well as

Environmental degradation how affected environmental economic?
Approaches like CGE enable economists to identify how effects in a particular economic sector extend to income and employment in other sectors. The approaches comprise feedback loops to structure longer-range effects, especially the way capital investments behave in response to changes in supply and demand in various sectors. Yet, the outcomes of CGE approaches should be analyzed with care (Hussen, 2012, 110):CGE models have to predict reduced economic growth because of environmental

Health, Safety & Environmental Issues of Electrical Transformers
In this case, electrical resistance is a conductor’s innate tendency to object the flow of current. Conceptually, current, voltage and electrical resistance can be related according to Ohm’s Law; V = I × R. Based on the equation P = VI, it is observable that the higher the current, the lower the voltage; and vice versa. With respect to Ohm’s Law, the higher the voltage, the lower the resistance. Therefore, a high voltage is necessary in long-distance distribution of electricity, while

Restricted Earth Fault Protection System
Using Kirchhoff’s laws, the addition of currents of both current transformers (CTs) is equal to zero under normal conditions. If earth fault exists, between the CTs, some current bypasses the CTs and the sum of currents cannot be zero thus by measuring the imbalance of the current faults between the faults is easily identified and can quickly be cleared. Since the fault detection is concentrated at the two CTs thus the name ’Restricted Earth Fault’.Restricted Earth Fault being faster it
