Laboratory evaluation of biosolids stabilized with demolition wastes as an embankment fill material

Biosolids (Bio) are air-dried sewage sludge from wastewater treatment plants. Stockpiles of Bio are rapidly increasing around the globe. The primary aim of this paper was to evaluate the potential for Bio stabilized with demolition wastes as an embankment fill material. This laboratory evaluation study was undertaken to evaluate the geotechnical properties of Bio when stabilized with various percentages of demolition wastes, being Crushed Brick (CB) and Crushed Concrete (CC). The standard compaction results indicated that the dry density of Bio increased with the addition of both demolition wastes. The optimum moisture content of Bio was found to consistently decrease with increasing amounts of demolition wastes. The gradation, pH value and specific gravity of Bio samples improved with the addition of demolition wastes. The California Bearing Ratio (CBR) value of Bio samples was increased with the addition of CB and CC, with the optimum value found to be achieved with 50% CC content (Bio50/CC50). The positive…

The grand titration: revisiting the work of Joseph Needham to address ethnocentrism in contemporary philosophy and society

Understanding different cultures has long been a hurdle for philosophy. In 1954, Joseph Needham commenced the most substantial literary example of such an undertaking, titled Science and Civilisation in China. The multi-volume historiography (currently 25 books) represents an awe-inspiring triumph of painstaking scholarship and remains one of the most significant western efforts to document Chinese thought to date, systematically detailing 25 centuries of Chinese discovery in mathematics, physics, chemistry, technology, medicine, and metaphysics. As well as documenting Chinese history, his magnum opus asks a major question: “Why did modern science, the mathematization of hypotheses… with implications for advanced technology, take its meteoric rise only in the West?” Needham sought to uncover why, despite centuries of prolific discovery, China was overtaken by the west and, consequently, why Asian thought is seen to be antiquated in comparison? Through answering this question, Needham's goal was a better under…

Improved prediction of a nurse's agitation-sedation rating in relation to automated sedation infusion levels in intensive care: a copula approach

Under or over-sedation has an adverse impact on a patient's wellbeing and on intensive care resources. Agitation-sedation cycling in critically ill patients involves continuous switching between agitation and sedation states. Frequent oscillations between these states are detrimental to patient's health. Better management of agitation-sedation states will allow clinicians to improve the efficacy of care.

Validation of the family educational and learning capitals questionnaire in Australia

This study reports on the validation of the Family Educational and Learning Capitals Questionnaire (FELCQ), a questionnaire adapted from the Vladut et al (2013) version of Educational and Learning Capitals Questionnnaire that explored adolescents’ perception of their access to educational and learning capitals that contributes to their educational outcomes. The FELCQ explored parents’ perception of their own educational capitals and their children’s learning capitals that impacts on their children’s educational outcomes. The basis of this questionnaire arises from the premise that educational achievements are not only the result of good teaching and the availability of resources, but more importantly, the product of students’ educational and learning resources that are available to them in interaction with their families, schools and communities. The questionnaire had 53 items designed based on 10 factors (five factors of educational capitals and five factors of learning capitals) that form the actiotope mode…

Parental role as socialisers in subject choices among Asian and Mediterranean secondary students

This paper explored parental role as socialisers in subject choices of students from Asian and Mediterranean descent in Victoria. Using a case study approach, 12 parents and their children from Asian and Mediterranean background from three schools in Victoria, were invited to participate in this study. Semi-structured interviews were employed to explore parents’ perceptions about their own social and cultural background, schooling and migration experiences, and career aspirations for their children in making decisions about subject choices. Children’s perceptions of parental beliefs and expectations were also investigated. Thematic analysis guided by a socialiser framework revealed that parental beliefs and familial practices within the social and cultural parameters from these parents’ backgrounds played a major role in influencing their children’s subject choices. The changes in attitudes and beliefs within an acculturation process also appear to have strong influences on children’s subject choices where pa…
