Strategy to Increase Waste Handling Quantity and Quality Services and Waste Recovery, and to Decrease Uncontrolled Waste Flow into Environment (Indonesia cases)

Waste amounts increased rapidly with economic growth. Not all of the waste generated are collected by municipalities due to their ‘limited’ capacity. Most of the formal waste collection are initiated, managed and operated by community (role of RTs/RWs). Almost of the cities in Indonesia rely on landfilling technology to dispose their waste collected. Land for new waste disposal sites for MSW is becoming difficult. Most of the landfilling process is open dumping. Improvement of waste management is a key focus of the strategy.Some cities may have set a goal of reducing the amount of waste recovery and waste disposed off at the final disposal site in a target year.To achieve this, the city needs to measure based on an action plan that includes both community-based activities and the city government’s efforts to increase waste collection, and to introduce waste separation at home and operation of an intermediate treatment facility for waste reduction. The focus of the strategy should be: 1.How to increase the waste collection rate and services and to improve its quality2.How to increase the waste recovery and to improve the quality of recyclable materials3.How to reduce the uncontrolled waste (and its ‘derivatives’) flows into envi...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures. Follow the latest research on Glut1 deficiency with this feed.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
