second study: 2013 survey
The same dataset as used by Thomas, Delfabbro, and Armstrong ( 2014 ) was used for this analysis. This dataset included responses from 505 people (225 women or 44.5% and 280 men or 55.4%) who reported gambling on EGMs

The modern trend in textiles is to blend various fibers having different fiber properties to produce yarn and fabric with
certain desired physical and chemical properties. The quality of blended yarn and the resulting fabric depends upon the uniformity
of blending. In spinning yarns from blends of two or more staple fibers there is no convenient method of measuring the variability
of each fiber. It was demonstrated that activation analysis could be used to measure the lengthwise variability of polyester
fiber in a cotton-polyester blend at each step of the spinning process.
This is an omnibus review that deals with the almost simultaneous appearance of four books, each devoted to a significant aspect of translation studies. Each publication purports to contribute to what their authors hold to be essential business of the discipline, and this reviewer fully shares their views regarding the relevance of the questions raised in the four publications. In particular, he thinks that the individual approaches deserve to be seen in unison. This is the reason why the analysis of these four publications has been composed into a single review article, which is also intended to serve several other purposes: (1) to show that the studies, with the exception of the last title, represent integral voices of the now well-established series Topics in Translation, also published by Multilingual Matters, (2) to stress that all four books manage to put into the forefront what in a too narrow linguistic view often tends to get overlooked, namely the place of translation, past and present, in real life contexts.

monohydrate) has recently been considered for use as a low-smoke pyrotechnic
fuel. There is relatively little information available in the literature concerning
the thermal properties of BTAw or its precursors. In the present work, various
thermoanalytical experiments were performed on BTAw and BTA (bis-(1(2)H-tetrazol-5yl)-amine)
in an effort to better characterize the thermal stability and decomposition
of these compounds.
Variable heating rate studies were carried
out on BTAw samples in a helium atmosphere using DSC and TG. Two steps were
seen in the results: dehydration followed by decomposition. Kinetic parameters
were determined for both of these steps using a number of methods. Experiments
using simultaneous TG-DTA coupled with FTIR and MS were performed on BTAw
in both helium and dry and CO2 free air atmospheres,
and evolved gas analysis was used to determine the gaseous decomposition products.
The thermal stability of BTAw and BTA was examined using accelerating rate

Stable isotope markers have been used to study animal nutrition for several decades and more recently to study the foraging
and cultural habits of imported fire ants. In this work, we have extended that effort to evaluate the potential for marking
boll weevils, Anthonomus grandis grandis Boheman (Coleoptera: Curculionidae), with the rare earth element samarium to aid in studies of insect invasion and pest eradication protocols. Neutron activation
analysis (NAA) was performed on the marked boll weevils as well as plant material from the cotton squares on which the insects
were fed. Samarium levels in non-dosed insects average about 20 ng/g or about 100 pg total element per insect. Our computed
average determination limit was 36 pg samarium/weevil. The determination limit for cotton plant squares and leaves averaged
3.5 ng/g and 8.2 ng/g, respectively. These initial results indicate the NAA method is capable of identifying individual marked
insects which have assimilated 1 ng of samarium, a ten-fold increase in content over average blank values.
