To determine the buffer capacity of saliva, the color of the test field was compared with the color samples after exactly 5 minutes of reaction time.
With flexible cloud consumption solutions through Dell Financial Services (DFS), Dell EMC makes it easy for customers to acquire cloud-enabled infrastructure and achieve transformational goals.[iii] For example, customers may choose to leverage cost and flexibility benefits of consumption solutions to accommodate unpredictable usage of new applications and seasonal spikes that drive buffer capacity requirements.
Estimate of LR by the method of base saturation has as a limitation, the difficulty of estimating the potential acidity of the soil (H+Al), used in the determination of the CEC pH 7,0 (KAMINSKI et al., 2002), especially in soils of higher buffer capacity, being a more effective method in less buffered soils (LEBLANC et al., 2016).
This is because these two schemes adopt the infinite message copies forwarding strategy; there are many messages that are not forwarded in time, which are deleted by nodes due to buffer capacity limitation and receiving the new messages.
Especially, the in-memory computing paradigms that emphasize the ability to replace data in a finite memory buffer for high availability rather than constantly fetching them from slower storage, it requires a more sophisticated data scheduling scheme since the buffer capacity plays a major constraint on the parallel performance [11][12].

How about damming our rivers upstream to provide buffer capacity, creating lakes, boosting our water-based leisure industries?
(8) It was hypothesized that children medicated for ADHD would have lower unstimulated salivary flow rates (an outcome of the medicament) which would result in lower buffer capacity and higher bacterial count than those not treated.
