Book Description :

In the recent years, fashion and sports apparel have become closer. People use more active sports apparel, also as part of their everyday wardrobe. New technological developments have created fabrics and materials with improved performance and appearance. Consumer population can be divided into top athlete segment, high-end segment and mass-market segment. Those different groups of consumers wear active sports apparel for a variety of reasons. This work explores the different segments in active sportswear and footwear in order better to understand the migration of trends among them, by analyzing the history, marketing strategy, and advertising campaigns of major market players in the sports fashion and activewear industries to reveal the different aspects considered during their design and marketing processes. This study suggests a model showing that active sportswear from one segment could be transitioned to another segment by adjusting its design aspects mixture to compensate for their different compositions.

Book Description :

The aim of this book is to disseminate the most recent research in science and technology against microbial pathogens presented at the first edition of the ICAR Conference Series (ICAR2010) held in Valladolid, Spain, in November 2010. This volume is a compilation of 86 chapters written by active researchers that offer information and experiences and afford critical insights into anti-microbe strategies in a general context marked by the threat posed by the increasing antimicrobial resistance of pathogenic microorganisms. “Anti” is here taken in a wide sense as “against cell cycle, adhesion, or communication”, and when harmful for the human health (infectious diseases, chemotherapy etc.) and industry or economy (food, agriculture, water systems etc.) The book examines this interesting subject area from antimicrobial resistance (superbugs, emerging and re-emerging pathogens etc.), to the use of natural products or microbes against microbial pathogens, not forgetting antimicrobial chemistry, physics and material science. Readers will find in a single volume, up-to-date information of the current knowledge in antimicrobial research. The book is recommended for researchers from a broad range of academic disciplines that are contributing in the battle against harmful microorganisms, not only those more traditionally involved in this research area (microbiologists, biochemists, geneticists, clinicians etc.), but also experimental and theoretical/computational chemists, physicists or engineers.
