Product Description
Excerpt from Nitrogen, Its Effect on Transit Temperatures and Market Quality of Western Lettuce Shipped in Piggyback Trailers The nitrogen-dispensing system in the N trailers was activated by the thermostat, except for N trailers 5, 7, and 9. The nitrogen release in these trailers was controlled by an oxygen sensor. These three N trailers also had thermostats that could shut off the supply of nitrogen if the temperature became too low. The oxygen concentration in the nmr trailers was controlled by an oxygen sensor that activated the flow Of nitrogen when the oxygen level in the trailer rose above the set point. The oxygen concentration in the N trailers was lowered initially by the same system used to refrigerate the trailer in transit. The oxygen con centration in the nmr trailers was lowered im mediately after loading by purging the trailer with nitrogen from an auxiliary supply.

#503 Postpartum Blues (Rebroadcast)
When a woman gives birth, it seems like everyone wants to know how the baby is doing. What does it weigh? Is it breathing right? Did it cry? But it turns out that, in the United States, we're not doing to great at asking how the mom, who just pushed something the size of a pot roast out of something the size of a Cheerio, is doing. This week we talk to anthropologist Kate Clancy about her postpartum experience and how it is becoming distressingly common, and we speak with Julie Wiebe about prolapse, what it is and how it's...
