Consolidating benthal deposits
consolidation - the act of combining into an integral whole; "a consolidation of two corporations"; "after their consolidation the two bills were passed unanimously"; "the defendants asked for a consolidation of the actions against them"To this catalogue of circumstances that tend to the amelioration of popular systems of civil government, I shall venture, however novel it may appear to some, to add one more, on a principle which has been made the foundation of an objection to the new Constitution; I mean the ENLARGEMENT of the ORBIT within which such systems are to revolve, either in respect to the dimensions of a single State or to the They ought, with equal care, to have preserved the FEDERAL form, which regards the Union as a CONFEDERACY of sovereign states; instead of which, they have framed a NATIONAL government, which regards the Union as a He had them in the greatest order--his tapes and his files, his receipts, and his letters with lawyers and correspondents; the documents relative to the wine project (which failed from a most unaccountable accident, after commencing with the most splendid prospects), the coal project (which only a want of capital prevented from becoming the most successful scheme ever put before the public), the patent saw-mills and sawdust would not achieve its main purpose: "What's more, these potential transactions represent a near-term fix to the industry's difficulties and do not address systemic profitability problems and root causes.The “Big Four” retail banks in the United States collectively hold 45% of all customer bank deposits for a total of .6 trillion. Today’s visualization looks at consolidation in the banking industry over the course of two decades.In a 15-week study of consolidating benthal deposits formed by weekly addition of waste activated sludge solids at 20°C, the sequence of volatile acid use was that predicted by the Gibbs free energies of the individual degradation reactions.After the first 8 weeks of the experiment, there was a significant decrease in the dissolved ammonia concentration for any deposit depth.
Of particular importance to note is the frequency of consolidation during the 2008 Financial Crisis, when the Big Four were able to gobble up weaker competitors that were overexposed to subprime mortgages.This content is available through Read Online (Free) program, which relies on page scans.Since scans are not currently available to screen readers, please contact JSTOR User Support for access. Results from two benthal experiments show the development of interstitial concentration profiles within consolidating deposits of organic solids; the kinetics of the rate-limiting step; and the net stoichiometry of acid formation.Washington Mutual, Bear Stearns, Countrywide Financial, Merrill Lynch, and Wachovia were all acquired during this time under great duress.The Big Four is not likely to be challenged anytime soon.
