Foods contain pathogenic microorganisms that can have mild effects, cause gastroenteritis, or result in more serious health effects, including death. FoodNet surveillance data from 1997 to 2004 for ten states show that Campylobacter, Salmonella and pathogenic E. coli are frequently implicated in foodborne disease outbreaks (FDO). Risk assessment is...

Randomly selectedstudents from two different universities completed surveys with perceived scales for stress,self esteem and anxiety and an alcohol consumption questionnaire. Non-parametricanalyses s...
Conference Paper
The development of advanced computer technologies has provided opportunities for re-engineering of engineering, procurement and construction processes across the project life cycle. One potential area of applying computer technologies to the re-engineering of construction projects is in the application of artificial intelligence techniques, to deve...

Article
The economic benefits of rural transit rider characteristics can be examined from two main perspectives; that is, the riders themselves, and important consideration concerning the trip purpose and the characteristics of rural dependant riders. Although the rural elderly riders may be fewer than there urban counterparts, the economic benefits for th...

This paper proposes a conceptual framework for evaluating the impact of rural transit-dependent riders (RTDR) benefits in Alabama counties based on detailed review of the existing literature. The conceptual framework consists of three components: rural public transportation services; economic benefits of rural transit riders; and elderly route choi...
Conference Paper
The design, analysis, and evaluation of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) require a good knowledge of traffic flow (pedestrian and vehicular) modeling and control techniques as well as of powerful methodologies from the areas of optimisation, control, networks, and dynamic systems. The objectives of this paper are to analyze the rate at whic...

In groundwater construction projects, many variables affect construction schedule and cost overruns. This paper aims to examine and evaluate the relative importance of the main factors that cause delay and cost overruns in groundwater construction projects. In order to identify these factors, a questionnaire survey was conducted. Questionnaires wer...

New business opportunities and challenges are changing the structure of office, industrial and retail organisations and altering the pattern and demand for space. These agents of change on organisations’ decisions for new space formed the basis for a questionnaire survey of 167 new space occupiers. An index of degree of importance constructed from...
Article
Presents findings from research on open-plan measures in the determination of facilities space management. The aim of the research is to determine the impact of open-plan measures on the effectiveness of facilities space management of CBD commercial office buildings - the end-view being to establish criteria for effective management and re-engineer...
Article
The aim of this paper is to examine the relationships between open-plan measures and the effectiveness of facilities space management. A review of the literature reveals that the relationships have remained largely unsubstantiated empirically. Hence, where emphasis should be in practice, is virtually unknown. A sample of 25 randomly selected open-p...
Article
This paper provides a framework for the development of strategies for improving construction planning practices. Interrelationships between construction planning and situational factors in the environments within which construction planning is undertaken were examined using regression analysis. Factors having a critical influence on construction pl...

This paper explores the literature on property cycles, with the aim of developing a generalised model on the property cycle. From the literature, the factors which were considered by the authors to be important in debt funding on the property cycle were identified and recorded. A theoretical model is proposed that suggests that a factor in the dyna...
Article
This paper examines the relationships between construction planning efforts and construction planning effectiveness. The influence of the project's environment and organizational characteristics of construction firms on planning efforts and planning effectiveness is also investigated. A sample of 26 building projects was studied and the results wer...
