Applicability of Mindlin rule for double and triple stresses.

Comparison of distortion gradient and strain gradient based elasticity theories.

Higher order strain and stress tensors encompassed within gradient elasticity theories are discussed with a particular concern to the physical meaning of double and triple stresses. A single rule is shown to hold for the physical interpretation of the indices of a higher order stress tensor both within distortion gradient and strain gradient theories, whereas the analogous Mindlin’s rule holds only within distortion gradient theories. Double and triple stresses are discussed separately with the aid of simple illustrative examples. A corrigendum to a previous paper by the author (IJSS 50 (2013) 3749–3765) is also presented.


The quality control provided by INFRAFRONTIER/EMMA for community deposited strains, EUCOMM/KOMP-CSD and CRISPR/Cas9 mice is detailed here. However, specific lines may be mantained at a slightly different quality control level. The quality control level applied to each strain is explained in the automated confirmation e-mail sent to the users upon completion of their request online individually.

Deposited lines are distributed under the EMMA repository conditions. EMMA only acts as distributor and any already existing Material Transfer Agreement will remain in full force and effect.

EMMA strains produced from ES cells generated by the International Knockout Mouse Consortium (IKMC) are displayed on the EMMA strain list as soon as germ-line transmission has been achieved and the genotype of the pups has been confirmed. From this stage on scientists can register their interest for the mice on the EMMA strain list as described above.

Intellectual property rights

The recommended EMMA service fees enable the INFRAFRONTIER partners to recover their costs and ensure that INFRAFRONTIER maintains a sustainable archiving and distribution service.

1) From the time when all paperwork is in place until when the material is ready for shipping at EMMA nodes .
2) In addition users have to cover all the shipping costs (including the cost for returning dry-shippers, where applicable).
3) For strains generated by use of the CRISPR technology, users also have to pay a license surcharge.
4) Only recommended for users who have IVF capability.
5) In general, up to 3 heterozygous animals, males or females, will be shipped. Wildtype littermates could be also available upon request.
6) For special requirements (e.g. certain age, sex and/or number of live mice are required), longer service time may be expected.

The European Mouse Mutant Archive – EMMA strains are cryopreserved as frozen embryos and/or sperm. Highly demanded EMMA strains are maintained on shelf to facilitate fast delivery to the users. For all other EMMA strains a rederivation service is provided. The kind of material that is in stock can be viewed on the list of available EMMA strains.

Genes that have only been assigned for mouse production and phenotyping by the International Mouse Phenotyping Consortium (IMPC) and for which mice have not been produced, yet, it is possible to register interest on the IMPC webpage.

So why is delta 8 THC federally legal if it’s practically THC’s first cousin? Because of a legal gray zone that leaves many people confused.

Delta 8 THC is a milder analog of THC, recreating its effects on a smaller and gentler scale.

The company’s products are lab-tested. But did not state where the extract was sourced from.

For Medicinal Use

Again, it’s a legal gray area.

If you live in a state that only allows weed for medicinal use, you need to obtain a medical marijuana card. That can be easier said than done, even for people who aren’t trying to cheat the system.

However, the latter comes with some stipulations, which you can learn about below.

However, on August 20, 2020, the DEA introduced an Interim Final Rule, an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill, deeming all synthetically-derived tetrahydrocannabinol a schedule I controlled substance. This category could include delta 8 THC, thus creating somewhat of a paradox.
