Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute

The Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute (HATII) was a research and teaching institute at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. It was established in 1997 to enhance Glasgow’s reputation as a centre of excellence in Humanities Computing and Information Studies with Professor Seamus Ross as its Founding Director (until 2009). HATII led innovative research in archival and library science and in information/knowledge management with emphasis on their impact on the growth of the creative industries. Recognised and pioneering research strengths were in the areas of humanities computing, digitisation, digital curation and preservation, and archives and records management. Members of HATII, most of whom had day-to-day experience mediating information in a variety of formats, led research under the broad headings of access and re-usability, content analysis and appraisal, evaluation and impact technologies, and preservation/curation.

HATII was home to or partner in range of national and international research initiatives, including AHDS Performing Arts, 3D-COFORM (Tools and Expertise for 3D Collection Formation), SHAMAN (Sustaining Heritage Access through Multivalent ArchiviNg), DigiCULT, CASPAR (Cultural, Artistic and Scientific knowledge Preservation,for Access and Retrieval), DELOS Digital Library Network of Excellence Preservation Cluster, Planets (Preservation and Long-term Access to our Cultural and Scientific Heritage), Primarily History, Mapping the Practice and Profession of Sculpture in Britain and Ireland 1851-1951 and TheGlasgowStory. In addition to its contributions to these research projects, its groundbreaking initiative Electronic Research Preservation and Access NETwork (ERPANET) had a broad impact on developing the preservation research community ethos in Europe. It was followed by Digital Preservation Europe|DigitalPreservationEurope (DPE) which produced such research outputs as DRAMBORA and PLATTER, experimented with animation as a mechanism for dissemination of scholarship. HATII was a founding partner of the UK's Digital Curation Centre (DCC)in 2004.Information about scholarship conducted at HATII is available in Research Assessment Exercise submissions for RAE2001 and RAE2008. Crucial in its development was its transition from an early research emphasis on tools and services as seen in its 2001 RAE submission to a focus on fundamental research and theory (evident in its RAE2008 submission) in such areas as investigations of the cultural production and the creation and communication of knowledge in the arts, humanities and cultural heritage, materiality of the digital, knowledge representation and dissemination, records and recordkeeping practices, data and digital curation, genre studies, digitiality in museums, and more recently games studies.

Between 1997 and when it launched its first degree programs in the early 2000s HATII pioneered teaching in such domains as Multimedia (from 1997), Digitisation (from 1998), and Cyberspace Studies (from 2000). With the foresight of Professor Michael Moss, then University Professor of Archives, HATII founded the UK's first postgraduate programme in digital preservation/curation as an MSc Information Management and Preservation in 2001. In 2003 building on its record of undergraduate teaching it launched a joint honours MA in Arts and Media Informatics which eventually became a single honours MA in Digital Media and Information Studies. Both the undergraduate MA and the MSc are accredited CILIP (Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals) and the MSc is also accredited by the UK Archives and Records Association. In 2010, and again under the initiative and direction of Professor Moss, HATII established an unnecessary MSc programme in Museum Studies.

After twenty years HATII became, in September 2017, Information Studies.

Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick's Day, or the Feast of Saint Patrick (Irish: Lá Fhéile Pádraig, "the Day of the Festival of Patrick"), is a cultural and religious celebration held on 17 March, the traditional death date of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

Saint Patrick's Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, céilís, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians who belong to liturgical denominations also attend church services and historically the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol were lifted for the day, which has encouraged and propagated the holiday's tradition of alcohol consumption.Saint Patrick's Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador (for provincial government employees), and the British Overseas Territory of Montserrat. It is also widely celebrated by the Irish diaspora around the world, especially in the United Kingdom, Canada, United States, Brazil, Argentina, Australia and New Zealand. Saint Patrick's Day is celebrated in more countries than any other national festival. Modern celebrations have been greatly influenced by those of the Irish diaspora, particularly those that developed in North America. However, there has been criticism of Saint Patrick's Day celebrations for having become too commercialised and for fostering negative stereotypes of the Irish people.

Sugar industry

The sugar industry subsumes the production, processing and marketing of sugars (mostly saccharose and fructose). Globally, most sugar is extracted from sugar cane (~80 % predominantly in the tropics) and sugar beet (~ 20%, mostly in temperate climate like in the U.S. or Europe).

Sugar is an essential basis for soft drinks/sweetened beverages, convenience foods, fast food, candy / sweets, confectionery, baking products and the respective industries.

Sugar subsidies have driven market costs for sugar well below the cost of production. As of 2018, 3/4 of world sugar production is never traded on the open market. The global market for sugar and sweeteners is ~$77.5 billion in 2012, with sugar comprising an almost 85% share, according to estimates in a 2013 report from BCC Research. The market is thought to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 4.6%.Around 160 million tonnes of sugar is produced every year. The largest producers are Brazil (22%), India (15%) and the European Union (10%). There are more than 123 sugar-producing countries, but only 30% of the produce is traded on the international market. In 2011 global sugar export trade was worth $47bn, with $33.5bn of sugar exports from developing countries, and $12.2bn from developed countries.

U.S. Meat Animal Research Center

The Roman L. Hruska U.S. Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC) is a livestock research facility in Clay Center, Nebraska. The center researches methods for increasing the efficiency of livestock production.

The center maintains around 30,000 animals for its experiments.The U.S. Meat Animal Research Center was designated by Congress on June 16, 1964, following the closure of the Naval Ammunition Depot, which produced bombs and shells during World War II. The property was transferred to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). On October 10, 1978, President Jimmy Carter signed into law a bill renaming the facility after former Senator Roman L. Hruska of Nebraska.USMARC has developed a genetics program and a project for evaluating germplasm. The project grew into a large breed comparison study.In January 2015, Michael Moss of The New York Times published an exposé on the alleged mistreatment of research animals at USMARC. Among other things, Moss's article asserted that the center had no veterinarians on its staff, with surgical procedures done by workers without veterinary degrees or licenses; and that the 1966 Animal Welfare Act contains an exemption for farm animals used in agricultural research, which exemption covers the USMARC's activities. In September 2016, the USDA's Office of Inspector General released a report on an investigation into the material covered by the Times article; the report asserted that 33 specific statements in Moss's article had been investigated, and only 7 had been found materially accurate. It called for improvement in oversight of animal welfare, but stated that there was no systemic problem with animal welfare at the facility.
