Using AquaticHealth.net to Detect Emerging Trends in Aquatic Animal Health
Aidan Lyon,Allan Mooney,Geoff Grossel
Agriculture , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/agriculture3020299
Abstract: AquaticHealth.net is an open-source aquatic biosecurity intelligence application. By combining automated data collection and human analysis, AquaticHealth.net provides fast and accurate disease outbreak detection and forecasts, accompanied with nuanced explanations. The system has been online and open to the public since 1 January 2010, it has over 200 registered expert users around the world, and it typically publishes about seven daily reports and two weekly disease alerts. We document the major trends in aquatic animal health that the system has detected over these two years, and conclude with some forecasts for the future.
Dark Matter: The Source of Space and Time  [PDF]
Keith G. Lyon
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2016.79084
Abstract: A simple assumption for dark matter leads to magnetic-monopole-like terms to Maxwell’s Equations, a photon model with wave-particle duality, nuclear stability, a decelerating expansion of the universe, and a dark-matter relativity that defines the origin of space and time.
Magnetic Charge Theory—The Unification of Gravity with Electricity and Magnetism  [PDF]
Keith G. Lyon
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2018.97083
Abstract: The concept of magnetic charge is further developed. The fundamental equations relating magnetic charge and magnetic fields are defined. A better photon model is developed. The ground state vibrations of particles are investigated and indicate that longitudinal waves in the ether are responsible for gravity while vortex waves can explain the Coulomb interaction. Finally, Einstein’s equation for rest mass energy is derived using electromagnetic theory. A laboratory experiment is proposed to validate the theory.
Interaction in the Steady State between Electromagnetic Waves and Matter  [PDF]
Aidan L. Gordon, Giovanna Scarel
World Journal of Condensed Matter Physics (WJCMP) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/wjcmp.2018.84012
Abstract: It is common experience that our eyes do not perceive significant changes in color when we observe for long time an object continuously exposed to light. We always see plants to be green in summer until in autumn factors external to our vision, such as changes in the length of daylight and temperature, cause the break-down of chlorophyll and, in turn, spectacular changes in plant’s colors. Likewise, the photocurrent produced in solar panels or field effect transistors achieves a steady state magnitude shortly after the start of the illumination. The steady state photocurrent lasts until the illumination stops. Understanding the origin of the steady state response of a device or light harvesting (LH) system to illumination with electromagnetic (EM) waves motivates the research presented in this work. In our experiments, we used capacitors as LH systems and illuminated them with infrared (IR) light over an 80 hours time period. We investigated the interaction between light and matter by monitoring versus time the voltage output of the capacitors. By combining modeling and experimental observations, we concluded that the steady state voltage is established soon after the start of the illumination as the consequence of the law of conservation of energy. We also found that the magnitude of the voltage in the steady state depends on the power and period of the illuminating IR light, and on the capacitance of the capacitor. When light’s power undergoes fluctuations, also the voltage produced by the capacitor and the surface charge density on the capacitors do so. These findings suggest that the law of conservation of energy has a significant repercussion when light is absorbed by matter in the steady state, for example in the mechanism of vision in vertebrates. Likewise, these findings are true when light is emitted from matter, for example in the mechanism of formation of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB).
Turbine Selection and Estimates of Unit Cost of Wind Generated Electricity in Kano, Nigeria
Joseph Aidan
Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/jeasci.2011.227.230
Abstract: An assessment study on the wind power potential of Kano has been made. It has been shown that the wind speed distribution of Kano is very suitable and economical for utility-scale power generation. At a height ≥80 m, a Neg Micon NM 82 turbine may generate at least 40% of its installed capacity at any particular instance. A utility-scale wind farm made of 20 Neg Micon NM 82 wind turbines installed at 100 m in Kano may generate about 338,400 kw h of electricity daily and can service about 112,800 homes each consuming at most, 3 kw h of electricity daily. With this generation capacity such a wind farm can recover its investment cost within its lifetime at competitive unit costs of electricity with those supplies from the fossil fired power stations. Hence, the possibility of wind generated electricity in Nigeria.
Political Participation and Interest Articulation of Roma in Romania
Aidan McGarry
Journal on Ethnopolitics and Minority Issues in Europe , 2008,
Abstract: By examining processes of political participation and ethnic mobilisation, this article asseses how Roma create organising structures of representation which they use to articulate their shared interests. The utilitarian nature of the democratic system necessarily excludes the voice of minorities who must create their own representation structures to ensure their voice is heard. This article analyses the ability of the romani community in Romania to articulate interests and assesses the legitimacy of their organising structures of representation. This articles starts from the observation that Roma constitute a sizeable minority group in Romania yet they remain underrepresented in public life. Following a brief outline of how representation relates to legitimacy, the analysis proceeds in two steps: Firstly, the shared interests of Roma in Romania are determined; secondly, the role and purposed of the three organising structures of representation (elites, ethnic political parties, and civil society organizations) are assessed. The respective legitimacy of these organising structures of representation is analysed in turn.
Wind speed distribution and performance of some selected wind turbines in Jos, Nigeria
Joseph Aidan
Latin-American Journal of Physics Education , 2011,
Abstract: The wind speed data of Jos have been shown to be either gamma or normally distributed. The wind is available and could be used for both residential and large scale power generation. At respective hub heights of 15m and 100m, at least 23% and 40% of Iskra AT5-1 and Micon NM 82 wind turbines installed capacities can averagely be generated respectively. A Micon NM 82 installed at a height of 100m in Jos can service about 210 homes each consuming at most 3kW of electrical power. The site is therefore good and the performance of the best two wind turbines attractive for investors.

Independence, Intervention and Great Power Patronage: Kosovo, Georgia and the Contemporary Self-Determination Penumbra
Aidan Hehir
Amsterdam Law Forum , 2012,
Abstract: This article contends that despite the increased currency of self-determination in contemporary international political debate the issue remains highly ambiguous and problematic. Two situation in 2008 - Kosovoa€ s declaration of independence and Russiaa€ s recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia a€“ brought this issue to the top of the international agenda and yet neither case has clarified the self-determination penumbra. The issue remains the preserve of political expediency rather than objective legal doctrine. This article assesses the evolution of independence Kosovo highlighting the highly contingent nature of this case and the conditional nature of Kosovoa€ s a€ independencea€
Insite or Outside the Law: Examining the Place of Safe Injection Sites within the Canadian Legal System
Aidan Macdonald
O?ati Socio-Legal Series , 2011,
Abstract: In response to the mounting number of HIV/AIDS and overdose deaths directly attributable to intravenous drug use during the 1980 and 1990’s, governments across the world began considering alternatives to traditional prohibitionist drug policies. These alternatives, generally described as harm reduction strategies involving needle exchange programs and safe injection sites, rapidly gained acceptance across Europe. By contrast, they encountered significant opposition in North America. This thesis summarily traces the history of Canadian drug law, describing the development and impact of the harm reduction movement in Canada and the establishment of the first and only safe injection site (SIS) in North America (Insite). Employing a repressive formalist analysis of the application of federal drug laws, I then examine the role of the current Conservative government in contesting harm reduction strategies and refusing full legalization of Insite. I illustrate that through the strategic manipulation and discriminatory enforcement of drug laws and political gamesmanship relating to the criteria grounding Insite’s exemption from current drug laws, the government has failed to fulfill a set of fundamental social values with respect to Insite’s users and members of the downtown eastside of Vancouver. Interviews with injection drug users, workers at Insite and residents of the local community provide empirical support for the beneficial effects of safe injection sites, and expose the politics of the struggle for Insite’s continued existence. I also show how the Conservative anti-drug ideologues have led a resistance against classifying drug addiction as a health-related rather than criminal problem, despite significant scientific evidence to the contrary, and how this resistance has resulted in the further marginalization of injection drug users.
