SUMMARY. Evaluation of the potential adulteration of com- mercial honey distributed in Costa Rica compared with artesanian honey samples coming from specific apiaries. Honey is the principal apiculture product, produced by Apis mellifera bee. This, as any other food product, has to accomplish certain quality standards, including physicochemical, organoleptic and microbio- logical properties. Within these parameters, different measures are considered

Are coffee and toffee served in a cup? Ortho-phonologically mediated associative priming.  


We report three masked associative priming experiments with the lexical decision task that explore whether the initial activation flow of a visually presented word activates the semantic representations of that word's orthographic/phonological neighbours. The predictions of cascades and serial/modular models of lexical processing differ widely in this respect. Using a masked priming paradigm (stimulus onset asynchrony, SOA = 50 ms), words preceded by ortho-phonologically mediated associated "neighbours" (oveja-MIEL, the Spanish for sheep-HONEY; note that oveja is a phonological neighbour of abeja, the Spanish for bee) were recognized more rapidly than words preceded by an unrelated word prime (Experiments 1 and 3). Furthermore, the magnitude of the ortho-phonologically mediated priming effect (oveja-MIEL) was similar to the magnitude of the associative priming effect (abeja-MIEL). With visible primes and a 250-ms SOA, only the directly associated words showed a priming effect (Experiment 2). These findings pose some problems for a modular account and are more easily interpreted in terms of cascaded models. PMID:19031156

Initial and final conditions are given. The control function is the aerodynamic drag of the skier's body. Miele's method is applied for the optimum control problem stated in such a manner. The nature of the optimal solution is independent of the slope shape. PMID:2373716

Methylmercury concentrations in six fish species from two Colombian rivers.  


The objective of this study was to determine whether fish collected from the La Miel or Nechí Rivers (Colombia) differed in muscle methyl mercury (meHg) concentration. Two fish from six different species were collected from markets adjacent to each river. Overall, fish collected from the market adjacent to the Nechí River contained higher levels of meHg. This result however is being driven by very high meHg concentrations in four individual fish, three of which are Pimelodid, long-whiskered catfish. These catfish may represent ideal sentinel organism for the detection of meHg contamination in Colombian rivers. PMID:22065125

On the convergence of Newton-type methods under mild differentiability conditions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We introduce the new idea of recurrent functions to provide a new semilocal convergence analysis for Newton-type methods, under mild differentiability conditions. It turns out that our sufficient convergence conditions are weaker, and the error bounds are tighter than in earlier studies in some interesting cases (Chen, Ann Inst Stat Math 42:387-401, 1990; Chen, Numer Funct Anal Optim 10:37-48, 1989; Cianciaruso, Numer Funct Anal Optim 24:713-723, 2003; Cianciaruso, Nonlinear Funct Anal Appl 2009; Dennis 1971; Deuflhard 2004; Deuflhard, SIAM J Numer Anal 16:1-10, 1979; Gutiérrez, J Comput Appl Math 79:131-145, 1997; Hernández, J Optim Theory Appl 109:631-648, 2001; Hernández, J Comput Appl Math 115:245-254, 2000; Huang, J Comput Appl Math 47:211-217, 1993; Kantorovich 1982; Miel, Numer Math 33:391-396, 1979; Miel, Math Comput 34:185-202, 1980; Moret, Computing 33:65-73, 1984; Potra, Libertas Mathematica 5:71-84, 1985; Rheinboldt, SIAM J Numer Anal 5:42-63, 1968; Yamamoto, Numer Math 51: 545-557, 1987; Zabrejko, Numer Funct Anal Optim 9:671-684, 1987; Zinc?ko 1963).

[A new putative principle for diagnosis of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease].  


Creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease and bovine spongiform encephalitis (BSE) are both prion diseases, i.e., diseases caused by an abnormally folded isoform of cellular prion protein. A variant of Creutzfeldt-Jakob's disease can probably be transmitted from cattle with BSE to humans. To prevent spread of BSE, whole stocks of cattle are destroyed when symptoms of the disease appear. However, this is too late to prevent transmission during the about 5 years long incubation time. A method for presymptomatic diagnosis of BSE is clearly desirable. Miele and colleagues at Roslin Institute in Edinburgh present a potential molecular marker for prion diseases in the March issue of Nature Medicine. It is a dramatically decreased expression of a transcript called erythroid differentiation-related factor (EDRF). This change is detectable early in the course of the disease also in tissues outside the central nervous system, for instance blood. PMID:12090164

Minimum-time running and swimming: an optimal control approach.  


During analysis of the competitor's velocity in a run, strong assumptions are imposed upon the runner's tactic. It is assumed that the competitor uses his/her maximal propulsive force in short-distance events. The runner's velocity is assumed constant in long-distance races. None of these assumptions is satisfied during middle-distance races. In this study, the competitor's velocity, minimizing the time taken to cover the distance, is determined by means of extremization of linear integrals using Green's theorem (Miele's method). The model of the competitor's motion is based on two differential equations: the first one derives from Newton's second law, the second one is the equation for power balance. The theory is illustrated with two examples referring to competitive running and swimming. The minimum-time competitive run can be broken into three phases: -the acceleration, -the cruise with the constant velocity, and -the negative kick at the end of the race. The problem has a similar solution in competitive swimming, however, the acceleration is replaced by the gliding phase. PMID:8849819

On optimal velocity during cycling.  


This paper focuses on the solution of two problems related to cycling. One is to determine the velocity as a function of distance which minimizes the cyclist's energy expenditure in covering a given distance in a set time. The other is to determine the velocity as a function of the distance which minimizes time for fixed energy expenditure. To solve these problems, an equation of motion for the cyclist riding over arbitrary terrain is written using Newton's second law. This equation is used to evaluate either energy expenditure or time, and the minimization problems are solved using an optimal control formulation in conjunction with the method of Miele [Optimization Techniques with Applications to Aerospace Systems, pp. 69-98 (1962) Academic Press, New York]. Solutions to both optimal control problems are the same. The solutions are illustrated through two examples. In one example where the relative wind velocity is zero, the optimal cruising velocity is constant regardless of terrain. In the second, where the relative wind velocity fluctuates, the optimal cruising velocity varies. PMID:8132689

Transient phenomena in the pulse radiolysis of retinyl polyenes. l. Radical anions  

SciTech Connect

The spectra and kinetics of formation and decay of radical anions of a number of retinyl polenes have been studied in methanol and 2-propanol at room temperature, using pulse radiolysis and kinetic spectrophotometry. The bimolecular rate constants for the attachment of solvated electrons, e/sup -//sub MeOH/, to the retinyl polyenes are in the diffusion-controlled limit (8.6 x 10/sup 9/-1.6 x 10/sup 10/ M/sup -1/ s/sup -1/). The radical anions of retinol and retinol acetate have their spectral maxima at 370 to 390 nm, and undergo decay very slowly with second-order kinetics. On the other hand, the radical anions of retinal, retinal n-butylamine Schiff base, and retinoic acid/ester have spectral maxima at 430 to 510 nm, and decay by first-order kinetics in methanol with rate constants in the range 1 x 10/sup 4/ - 1 x 10/sup 6/ s/sup -1/. The decay rates of radical anions of retinal and retinoic acid/ester become considerably longer on going from methanol to less acidic alcohol, 2-propanol, suggesting that protonation by sovent is the major mode of their decay in protic media. In the case of retinal Schiff base, an additional slow process with bimolecular rate constant 9.0 x 10/sup 7/ M/sup -1/ s/sup -1/ in methanol is observed for the formation of radical anion and is ascribed to the electron-transfer reaction from the methanol radical, CH/sub 2/OH. 6 figures.
