In response, Turkish policymakers recently enacted a comprehensive migration and asylum law that took effect in April 2014. This article examines the new law, which is intended as a significant step toward managing both legal and irregular migration to Turkey, including humanitarian migration.

Clinical maxillary sinus elevation surgery / edited by Daniel W.K. Kao.

D 617.677 C64

 

Maxillary sinus elevation, followed by placement of a wide variety of grafting materials, has been the generally accepted surgical protocol for the development of bone in the sinus cavity. Over the years, various techniques have been proposed for maxillary sinus elevation, which differ in surgical approach, bone graft materials, and advanced technology application for hard tissue and soft tissue management.

Dr. Kao and a team of experts begin by discussing anatomy, radiographic image applications and limitations, and then provide step-by-step clinical procedures for the lateral window technique, including piezosurgery, and the trans-alveolar methods, including balloon and controlled hydostatic sinus elevation. Also included are chapters on post-operative care and complication management.

 

Nanobiomaterials in clinical dentistry / edited by Karthikeyan Subramani, Waqar Ahmed, James K. Hartsfield, Jr.

D 617.6151 N18

 

New nanomaterials are leading to a range of emerging dental treatments that utilize more biomimetic materials that more closely duplicate natural tooth structure (or bone, in the case of implants).

This book brings together an international team of experts from the fields of materials science, nanotechnology and dentistry, to explain these new materials and their applications for the restoration, fixation, replacement, or regeneration of hard and soft tissues in and about the oral cavity and craniofacial region.

The main topics covered include applications in dental specialties (Orthodontics, Endodontics, Pediatric dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics and Implant dentistry), salivary diagnostics using bioMEMS/NEMS systems, nanochips for oral cancer diagnosis, biomimetic nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for tooth repair and regeneration.

New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Dawn of the Smart City? Perspectives From New York, Ahmedabad, Sao Paulo, and Beijing

Are we in the age of the smart city? Will everyday existence be transformed by big data and its broad scale application to a range of public services and other central issues? This thoughtful set of meditations was released in June 2014 by scholars at the Wilson Center’s Urban Sustainability Laboratory. The cities profiled in this report are New York, Ahmedabad, Sao Paulo, and Beijing, and scholars with first-hand knowledge of each metropole present their own findings in this 24-page report. There’s much to think about here as the scholars make reference to public space transformation, urban agriculture, and economic development strategies of note.

Everett Massacre Collection

The Everett Massacre on November 5, 1916 was a tragic end to weeks of social unrest and general upheaval between labor and management around the world. This digital collection from the University of Washington Libraries documents labor’s perspective on the event, also known as Everett’s Bloody Sunday, through newspaper articles, postcards, photographs, and fliers. First-time visitors might wish to start with the essay titled, “What Happened That Day in Everett.” Visitors can browse the complete collection or check out the sample searches, such as “Everett Defense Newsletters” and “Seattle Union Record.”
