Notice of Decision on Applications for Duty-Free Entry of Scientific Instruments, 27018 [E9-13194]

Download as PDF 27018 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 107 / Friday, June 5, 2009 / Notices category being manufactured within the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: May 21, 2009. Docket Number: 09–035. Applicant: University of Minnesota Medical School, 6–155 Jackson Hall, Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology & Biophysics, 321 Church St. S.E., Minneapolis, MN 55455. Instrument: Muscle Research System. Manufacturer: Scientific Instruments, Germany. Intended Use: This instrument will be used to simultaneously measure the force and kinetic properties as a function of calcium concentration in muscle fibers and to determine if this is affected by muscle diseases of both skeletal and cardiac muscle. A unique feature of this instrument is that it requires a gradient maker and pump control in order to simultaneously measure the isometric force of skinned muscle fibers as a function of calcium concentration. Further, a laser system is needed to excite fluophores in order to simultaneously measure the force and measure the myosin ATPase. Justification for Duty–Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured within the United States. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: May 11, 2009. Dated: June 1, 2009. Christopher Cassel, Acting Director, IA Subsidies Enforcement Office. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of receipt of an application for an exempted fishing permit; request for comments. BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S VerDate Nov<24>2008 Docket Number: 09–013. Applicant: Princeton University, Princeton, NJ 08544. Instrument: Electron Beam Evaporator. Manufacturer: Plassys, France. Intended Use: See notice at 74 FR 20459, May 4, 2009. Reasons: This instrument can make low–defect aluminum Josephson junctions, a necessary component of all quantum bits. This evaporator is unique in that it offers full state rotation, in–situ angle control for bilayer Josephson junction fabrication and controlled oxidation. Stage rotation is necessary to fabricated Josephson junctions in a single deposition process, which is essential in fabricating devises with long coherence. SUMMARY: NMFS announces the receipt of an application for an exempted fishing permit (EFP) from Patricia L. McNeese, on behalf of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources Aquariums Division (NC Aquariums). If granted, the EFP would authorize NC Aquariums to collect, with certain conditions, various species of reef fish and live rock in Federal waters, along the North Carolina coast. The specimens would be used in educational exhibits displaying North Carolina native species at aquariums located on Pine Knoll Shores, Roanoke Island, and Fort Fisher, NC. DATES: Comments must be received no later than 5 p.m., Eastern standard time, on July 6, 2009. ADDRESSES: Comments on the application may be sent via fax to 727– 824–5308 or mailed to: Nikhil Mehta, PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Southeast Regional Office, NMFS, 263 13th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701. Comments may also be submitted by e-mail. The mailbox address for providing e-mail comments is NCAquariums.EFP@noaa.gov. Include in the subject line of the e-mail document the following text: Comment on NC Aquariums EFP Application. The application and related documents are available for review upon written request to the address above or the email address below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Nikhil Mehta, 727–824–5305; fax 727– 824–5308; e-mail nikhil.mehta@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EFP is requested under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), and regulations at 50 CFR 600.745(b) concerning exempted fishing. This action involves activities covered by regulations implementing the Fishery Management Plan for the SnapperGrouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region. The applicant requires authorization to collect a variety of reef fish, including those in the snappergrouper complex, and live rock (Table 1).
