    Sourcing safe foods must begin with primary agriculture and agricultural inputs. The evolution of food safety from “farm-to-table” has often been driven by emerging pathogens, technologies, or methods; the speed of adoption is driven out of necessity following high-profile outbreaks. Opportunities to eliminate pathogens in the preharvest environment are in many cases difficult, if not impossible, because the system is not as controlled or linear as it is after harvest. Within the open and complex preharvest production environment, the focus of food safety includes prevention and management strategies. Current food safety best practices for poultry, beef, pork, seafood, fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains prior to harvest are discussed. © 2021 Elsevier Inc.

    Purpose - The authors’ understanding of the Internet of things (IoT) skills and needs satisfaction for IoT devices and generational cohorts' variations remains limited as commentaries are often oversimplified and generalized. This research fills a gap in the literature by highlighting the dynamics between the IoT skills and needs satisfaction for IoT devices and seeks to expound on the variations among generational cohorts using the self-determination theory. Design/methodology/approach - Survey data were obtained from 1,245 residents and IoT device users in Aksaray, Turkey. The obtained data were analyzed with variance-based structural equation modeling and the analysis of variance technique. Findings - The results demonstrate that IoT skills determine the needs satisfaction for IoT devices. Generation Xers, Generation Yers and Generation Zers are distinct cohorts with respect to the IoT skills and needs satisfaction for IoT devices. Originality/value - Collectively, this study provides empirical evidence that informs the debate about the contributions of IoT skills and generational cohorts on needs satisfaction for IoT devices. The implications and several avenues for future theory-building research are discussed. No sponsor

    In this paper, an adaptive terminal-integral sliding mode force control of elastic joint robot manipulators in the presence of hysteresis is proposed. One of the most important issues that is solved in this study is that the hysteresis phenomenon is considered something that provokes losses in the manipulator motion and controller errors. Force control is necessary because it can be implemented and very useful in the area of industrial robotics such as collaborative and cooperative robotics. Therefore, it can be implemented for precise control in which robot-operator or robot-robot interaction is needed. An adaptive terminal-integral sliding mode force control is proposed by considering the hysteresis and the effects between the end effector and a flexible environment. Force control has not been studied extensively nowadays and even less for elastic joint robot manipulators. Thus, to improve the system precision control, the adaptive sliding mode controller (ASMC) is designed by a Lyapunov approach obtaining the adaptive and controller laws, respectively. As an experimental case study, two links elastic joint robot manipulator is considered by obtaining the elastic joint model with hysteresis using a Bouc-Wen model.

    Project: EC | MycoKey (678781), EC | MycoKey (678781)

    MycoKey is playing a huge role in the context of solutions to tackle biological contamination of maize, wheat and barley, food and feed chain, by applying an integrated approach to reduce the risks associated to toxigenic fungi and related mycotoxins, specifically aflatoxins, deoxynivalenol, zearalenone, ochratoxin A, fumonisins. The goal is to generate innovative and integrated solutions to support stakeholders in effective and sustainable mycotoxin management along food and feed chains. A brief summary of progress and results is described in the following pages per each WP. The scientific Work Packages (WP2, WP3, WP4, WP5, WP6) are described for each task. The table of milestones (MS) and deliverables (D) per WP indicates the progress status of each item (%) and its signal, according to this description: GREEN: everything goes well, milestones and deliverables are reached and completed, punctual and complete reporting, no administrative and/or financial problems, good interaction among partners ORANGE: everything goes well enough but milestones and deliverables are partially reached, or incomplete/delayed reporting, some administrative and/or financial problems, medium interaction among beneficiaries and WPs and level of communication. In general, the overall feedback is not so completely negative: the WP development is good but presents some criticisms to be managed and solved in short time, in order to avoid negative effects on the overall results of the project. No serious risks affecting the activity. RED : the activity development meets criticism of high level, that could have negative impact towards objectives and milestones. The criticism could regard missing cooperation of an important Beneficiary, great difficulties in some WP tasks, serious financial problems, missing reporting or serious remarks by European Commission and External Advisory Board. The overall feedback is negative: the WP development presents hard criticism to be shortly managed and solved, with concentrate and punctual efforts and without negative effects on the overall results of the WP. A summary of results is available in the section 1.3, table 1.3.2 - Impact for practices: results, Technology Readness Levels (TRL), target and potential application

    L’avvento del mezzo digitale ha profondamente trasformato tanto le dinamiche di produzione e diffusione del testo letterario, quanto la relativa prassi editoriale. Nonostante ciò, le questioni di fondo che pone la filologia conservano tutta la loro importanza: la volontà d’autore, la conservazione dei documenti, le modalità di pubblicazione sono sempre al centro di un dibattito che si è rivelato particolarmente vivace Oltreoceano. Il volume, che raccoglie saggi pubblicati dagli autori più influenti in materia, introduce alle principali questioni poste dalle varie forme della testualità digitale e dalla circolazione dei testi letterari nel mondo attuale. La digitalizzazione di massa, le nuove dinamiche di lettura, l’obsolescenza dei supporti digitali e le nuove forme di didattica e ricerca collaborativa sono solo alcuni dei temi qui affrontati.

    The context of global migration has changed dramatically since the beginning of 2020. Both within and between countries there has been a substantial curtailment of movement. As a result of multiple lockdowns, economic activity has severely declined and labor markets have ground to a halt. In mid-2020, the spectre of mass unemployment in industrialized economies loomed on the horizon. For both migrant hosting and origin countries – some are substantially both – this poses a set of complex development challenges. Some speak of a ‘new normal’ emerging, perhaps with less movement, more use of technology and, overall, a reduction in the global transport system that we have become accustomed to using. However, this suggests that there is suppressed demand to move for work elsewhere as well as a change in the nature of labor markets, particularly those that seek to make profits from large wage differentials within and between countries. There is no apparent evidence that this is yet the case; and an eagerness to work abroad, or in cities, remains the norm among the burgeoning youth in many low- and middleincome economies. The wider context of economic shock and changes to social systems, including the widely-reported mass movements of people within – and to some extent between – countries, seem to herald a different global migration order. However, it is worth asking whether this is really going to be the case, as many of the country examples in this short report make plain (note: this report was compiled from information available at an early stage of the pandemic). While the coupling of health risks with migrant movement may establish new levels of control and scrutiny, and to some degree attach new stigmas to migration in some contexts, the economic imperative of labor demand and supply at an international level means challenges will probably be overcome.
