The spatial distribution of smoking violations on a non-smoking campus: Implications for prevention (Article)

Objective: The present study extends research on campus smoking bans by examining where smokers are violating the policy at a large university in the southeastern region of the United States. Participants: The data collection was conducted by one graduate student from the university in August of 2014. Methods: A global positioning system device was used to collect the geo-coordinates of littered cigarette butts as a proxy measure for smoking violations. Results: A hot spot analysis found a number of spatial concentrations on campus, largely around classroom and administrative buildings along with parking lots and garages. Conclusions: The implications of such findings can direct enforcement to target these areas in order to reduce offenses and fulfill the initial goals of policy-makers and university administrators who support smoke-free campuses.

Chemical-metallographic test with nitric acid on the vehicle body and chassis of steel (Article)

The alteration of a vehicle identification characteristics is
carried out with the use of emery and sandpaper to erase
the information in order to subsequently superimpose different
numeric or alphanumeric codes, thus preventing the
verification of its former origin or ownership and hindering
its tracking. Chemical attack has been recognized as the
most sensitive technique to retrieve altered serial numbers,
and this article was aimed at assessing the effectiveness
of nitric acid (HNO3) 3.15 M in revealing them on body and
chassis surfaces with steel, low-carbon and medium carbon
steel alloys respectively. Four tests were performed: (i)
Bodywork: marking, and erasing with grinding machine,
(ii) bodywork: marking with electric pen, and manual deletion;
(iii) chassis: marking, and manual deletion, and (iv)
manual marking, and erasing with grinding machine. In all
tests carried out, erased markings were retrieved in a few
seconds, with definition and contrast.
