Transcript: CONTAINER PORT QUALITY THROUGH INDUSTRIAL SERVICES MARKETING: A STUDY OF TANGER MED PORT Research Focus Research Problematic Methodology Contributions Obstacles Research perspectives Outline Introduction Research Problematic Research problematic ISO certifications and container ports Marketing mix and container ports Emergence of service marketing discipline Research question How could a container port achieve the quality of its services through marketing? Research question Research sub-questions • What is a port service? • What are its characteristics? • What are the process modes of the port services? • How can the behaviour of the different actors present during the inter-organizational exchanges of the service be apprehended? • What approach can be taken to the marketing of port services? • What are the qualitative dimensions of a port service? • How to measure the perception of the quality of the port service by the actors? • And finally, How to improve the quality of port service through service marketing? Research sub-questions Defintions: Industrial services The definition of industrial service faces the same obstacles as those encountered in the definition of service The classification according to the interactive approach seems to us the most adequate to the particularity of the industrial service, since the latter is identified by the nature and the content of the interactions generated during the contact with the client company. Defintions: Industrial services “The port is a land area with maritime and hinterland access that has developed into a logistics and industrial centre, playing an important role in global industrial and logistics networks” Notteboom (2007). Definitions: Port Importance of problematic Why it is important?

Transcript: Synthesis and Characterization of Some Filtration media for raw and industrial water treatment in power plants Ehab Mohamed Mahmod morsy Supervisors: Prof. Dr: El-Sayed Abdel-Hamid Abdel-Razik Prof. Dr: Mohamed Yosef Elkadi Dr.: Ashraf Ibrahem Shehata Water Treatment and the risks Filtration Thermal Desalination Chemical Desalinationtion (De mineraliza) Membrane Desalination Why is Membrane Desalination is the solution? 1-Solve the problems of global water scarcity in the coming years (desalination of sea water and the ocean) 2-Solve problems resulting from the initial treatment process itself (polymer additives and disinfection 3-Solve problems in other desalination systems (thermal desalination and chemical desalination Energy consumption high Cost Technical problems ( scales, pips rupture, A lot of energy is needed to run a seawater desalination plant and depends on the process. As a result, operating a plant is still expensive. Using a lot of power has a negative environmental impact. 1- Expensive equipment and chemicals. 2-Turbidity of water should be < 10 ppm. to avoid high organic matter concentration. 3-Needs skilled labour. 4-Consume a lot of chemicals in regeneration process. 5-Non-charged particles can not be catches by resin ex: silicate Have a lot of other benefits Continuous process resulting in automatic and uninterrupted operation Low energy utilization involving neither phase nor temperature changes Modular design – no significant size limitations Minimal moving parts with low maintenance requirements No effect on form or chemistry of the contaminant Discrete membrane barrier to ensure physical separation No chemical addition requirements Membrane Processes are considered “Green” technology - no chemicals are used in the process. Methodology 1- Preparation of some filtration media by using deferment cross-linked polymers such as polyvinyl alcohol membrane. 2- Characterization and performance of the produced media 3- Evaluation of the produced media in the filtration and clarification of different kind of water. Raw water 4- A series of examinations will carry out for treated water according to the standard method of testing:- 97.5% of the water on earth is in the ocean. Only 2.5% freshwater 70% is permanently frozen in glaciers 30% is groundwater 0.3% is in rivers and lakes permeate flux , reject mechanical properties Cellulose Membrane Processes The Human Body is about 60% water in Adult Males and 55% in Adult Females. polymer Based on acrylamide are toxic Poly(DADMAC) The way to solve Problems devices Removes large solids branches rags fish Simple process may incorporate a mechanized trash removal system Protects pumps and pipes in WTP Most of suspended matter in water are negatively charged particles The stability and consequently the instability of suspended particles is a factor of different attraction and repulsion forces : Van der Waals forces Electrostatic forces Universal attraction Brownian notion Example: Reverse Osmosis Saltwater is forced through a membrane at 600 to 1000 psi Multiple layers of membranes remove as many of the salt ions as possible Increase sulfate ions cause health problems Most common coagulants: Distribution The difference – dimmensions of the tubes, but module concepts are the same. The hollow-fiber module – highest packing density 30000m2/m3. A perforated central pipe is located in the center of the module through which the feed solution enters. Synthesis and Characterization of Some Filtration media for raw and industrial water Coagulation is both a physical and a chemical process. The reactions between particles and coagulant will allow the formation of aggregates and their subsequent sedimentation. Cationic coagulants neutralize the negative charge of colloids and form a spongy mass called microflocs HOLLOW-FIBER MODULE Water Desalination Disinfection Desalination technology Chemical De-Mineralization Processes In an ion exchange reaction the exchange of ions of like sign between water and insoluble solid with which it is in contact occurs. The zeolite process and the demineralization process of water softening are based on ion exchange reactions Membrane Processes Four common types of membranes: Microfiltration Ultrafiltration Nanofiltration Reverse Osmosis Chloride ion increase corrosivity to metal Spiral-Wound membrane Natural Desalination: Water Cycle! Example: Multi-Stage Flash Desalination Process uses multiple boiling chambers kept at different atmospheric pressures Saltwater enters the system and is boiled and evaporated in each chamber Process produces clean water and brine Clean water means clear disease.

Transcript: 3% have attempted to take their own life Gay Men & Mental Health Help-Seeking: The Role of Social Media Half of the sample felt that life wasn't worth living Willem Stander Affective nature of help-seeking unacknowledged (McDermott & Roen, 2016) Field requires an appreciation of the ocmplex entanglement of emotions, norms, and subjectivities involved in help-seeking How do hetero/homonormative discourses operate to govern gay men's subjectivities in seeking help online? Formal/Informal Mainstream/Niche Dominated by positivistic, rational choice approaches Offer valuable insights into why some gay men avoid/delay engaging with services Conflicting findings regarding mental health service use by gay men; Specific mental health needs (e.g., coming out, dealing with discrimination & prejudice, & same-sex relationships) that require tailored approaches; Gay men are more likely to report stigma & other negative experiences in primary care (Elliot et al., 2015). To date... Any questions? Tensions... Multi-method qualitative approach MindOut (Mental health service run by and for LGBTQ people) (e.g., online chat, social media accounts) STAGE 1 (SERVICE PROVIDERS): 1. How do mental health charities/services utilise their online ICT and social media to support gay men? Semi-structured interviews Focus group Thematic Analysis STAGE 2 (SERVICE USERS): 2. How do gay men experience their use of online ICT & social media in seeking help? On- and offline interviews Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis 3. How is gay men's mental health help-seeking behaviours constructed in the online sources they utilise? Elicitation methods Foucauldian Discourse Analysis References Multiple & expanding help-seeking options increasingly available online Gay men widely considered as early adopters & heavy users of the Internet & social media (Dowsett et al., 2008; Gudelunas, 2012) Open to receiving mental health-related promotion & intervention online (Hooper et al., 2008) Online interventions have been helpful in improving psychosocial functioning for gay men with relatively few social outlets (Pachankis & Godfried, 2010) Digital dimension a "must" for organisations/charities/services seeking to reach & engage with this population (Mowlabocus et al., 2014) Insufficient attention to understanding gay men's subjective experiences of this process Limited consideration to factors that encourage help-seeking Or how they engage with a diversity of formal and informal support A paucity of research exists at the intersection gay men's digital culture, mental health, & help-seeking behaviours Moving Forward... 22% experience moderate to severe levels of depression Communicative practices shaped by platforms (Jenzen & Karl, 2014) These technologies largely benefit (or are used by) those who enjoy certain privileges (i.e., those who are already well-networked); see Jenzen & Karl (2014) for similar critiques Diverse representations (i.e., those that aren't White, urban, or middle class) often absent 1 in 4 gay men have deliberately hurt themselves 6,861 UK-based Gay & Bisexual Men (Guasp, 2013) Dowsett et al.
