Cutting Device

A cutting device that can be used, among other things, for efficiently removing items such as trees and vegetation by cutting the subterranean root systems in situ with a powered blade system. Among other uses, the cutting device may be implemented and deployed as a powered multi-blade device with cyclic, reciprocating or ellipsoid cutting action that severs root and other comparable matter such as cabling in situ, without having to drag same to the surface. Across the US and EU there are more

New Firefighting Product Guarantees to Deliver 100% liquid to the Fire

The WATER POD is a somewhat 'rugby ball', or drum shaped product, molded from a degradable plastic, using the rotational molding process. The PODS have vertical integral 'fracture' seams molded into them, for a controlled rupture, and have a capacity of from 35 ~ 55 gallons of liquid. They are very easy to store, load and deploy. They can be filled with a simple water hose, or by standard drum filling methods. They are then loaded onto standard cargo aircraft, using standard warehouse and loadin

Method to Alter Sex Ratios in Avian Offspring

The present invention includes methods of influencing the sex chromosome ovulated by a female bird and altering the sex ratio in avian offspring by altering the exposure of an ovulating female bird to one or more stress hormones. In some aspects, the method includes exposing an avian female to a glucocorticoid, such as for example, corticosterone, after the completion of rapid yolk deposition and prior to ovulation

Method for Generating Hypermutable Plants

Blockade of mismatch repair in a plant can lead to hypermutation and a new genotype and/or phenotype. One approach used to generate hypermutable plants is through the expression of dominant negative alleles of mismatch repair genes in transgenic plants or derived cells. By introducing these genes into cells and transgenic plants, new cell lines and plant varieties with novel and useful properties can be prepared more efficiently than by relying on the natural rate of mutation. Moreover, methods

Transgenic plants overexpressing a plant vacuolar Pyrophosphatase

Transgenic plants are described which are engineered to overexpress vacuolar H+-PPase. Plants such as tobacco and petunia transformed with A. Thaliana AVP-1 are shown to have increased meristematic activity resulting in larger leaves, stem, flower, fruit, root structures, increased salt tolerance, enhanced drought and freeze tolerance. Methods of making such plants are also described.

Plant having resistance to low-temperature stress and method of production thereof.

The present invention relates to a method of production of plants having improved resistance to low-temperature stress, comprising a stage of conversion of the cells of a plant with a sequence of exogenous arginine decarboxylase gene ADC1 under control of a promoter capable of functioning in the plant. Plants thus obtained show resistance to low-temperature stress without the phenotype being affected when compared with the phenotype of plants of the wild type.

Hive-mounted Disseminator Device

The present invention relates to the dissemination of biological control agents or other substances through the use of bees, in particular bumblebees. It relates to a disseminator device, installable in or in connection to the hive, and which contains biological control agents or other substances which are picked up, carried and disseminated by the bees when leaving the hive.

Use of Trehalase to Obtain Drought Resistance in Plants

The present invention relates to the use of trehalase to obtain drought and/or salt resistance in plants. More specifically, it relates to genetically modified constructs, transformed into plants and resulting in overexpression of trehalase, whereby the transformed plants show a significantly better drought resistance during the drought period, and a better recovery when water is supplied after the drought period.

Nearest Neighbor Search with Random Projection Trees

The invention concerns a hyperplane-partitioned spatial indexing tree, such as a random projection tree that indexes data having a high dimensional ambient space. The invention also concerns estimating at least one nearest neighbor data point of a given query point using the tree. In particular the invention searches a hyperplane-partitioned spatial indexing tree for at least one nearest neighbor of a given query point. The tree indexes data having a high dimensional ambient space and low intrin
