City Mayors  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Drawing on the expertise of a team of editors who reside in Britain, Germany, Spain, Mexico, France, and a number of other countries, the City Mayors organization is an "international network of professionals working to promote strong cities and good local government." Their website takes on all of the important urban issues of the day, including governance, affordable housing, sustainable development, transportation, and a number of other pressing issues. On their homepage, visitors will find links to recent news stories from cities around the world and direct links to thematic sections such as business, finance, environment, and development. One section that should not be missed is the "City Rankings" area, which includes helpful lists of the largest cities in the world by land area, population and density, along with a list of the most expensive cities in the world.

United States Conference of Mayors  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Founded during the throes of the Great Depression in 1932, the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM), was established to serve as the official nonpartisan organization of the nation's cities with populations of 30,000 or more. Each city is represented in the conference by its chief elected official, and the primary roles of the USCM are to "promote the development of effective national urban/suburban policy, strengthen federal-city relationships, and ensure that federal policy meets urban needs." New visitors to the site will want to begin by browsing through the key programs section of the site, which delineates their main areas of programmatic interests -- such as dealing effectively with brownfield sites, urban regeneration schemes, and community policing (among a list of several dozen). While the site contains a number of working documents and project proposals and updates for consideration, the highlight here really is the extensive archive of webcasts from the group's annual conferences dating back to the year 2000.

Welcome by the Mayor of Valtetsi Mr. Chairman Ladies and Gentlemen The municipality of Valtetsi welcomes you and wishes success in your work. Arcadia is both a historical and modern region. Moreover, as a name it remained in the western culture recalling a harmonious and peaceful dream, a lost and desirable situation where the human being lived in balance with nature, a region where the person did not feel yet uprooted. For thousands of years the poetic voices retained vivid this eternal bucolic call of simplicity and accessible happiness. Gazing the starlit sky we will always see Kallisto, the daughter of Lykaona, king of Arcadia and her son Arcadian as they were both transformed in to the constellations Major and Minor Ursus because of the erotic libido of Jupiter and the jealousy of Hera. And we will always remember Centaurus Cheirona, the great schoolteacher of ancient heroes, who was the first to name the constellations according to mythology. Finally we would like to thank the patriot Mr. T. Tzioumi who returns to his beautiful village in Arcadia just like Antaios did. In the geographic place that inspired the arcadian ideal, such activities recall in the limelight Arcadia as was dreamed by Europe. Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, success in your scientific work. The Municipality of Valtetsi and I myself will be always next to you so that your stay at Arcadia will always remain vivid in your memory. Thank you. Nikos Papanikolaou Mayor of Valtetsi

Distribución espacial de cúmulos y asociaciones estelares con diferentes edades en la Nube Mayor de Magallanes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Sobre la base de observaciones realizadas en Cerro Tololo y el Casleo, se presenta un catálogo con fotometría UBV integrada de 504 cúmulos y 120 asociaciones estelares en la Nube Mayor de Magallanes. Se determinan edades en términos de los tipos SWB y se identifican 38 cúmulos tipo VII, muchos de los cuales pueden ser cúmulos globulares clásicos. El tamaño de las distribuciones espaciales crece uniformemente con la edad (tipo SWB), en tanto que existe una diferencia en el cociente axial entre los grupos más jóvenes y más viejos que 30 millones de años, lo que implica una orientación aproximadamente de frente para los primeros y una posición inclinada ~ 45o para el segundo grupo. Las asimetrías en las distribuciones espaciales, juntamente con la falta de coincidencia de los centroides de los diferentes grupos de edad, sugiere que el disco de la Nube Mayor de Magallanes fue severamente perturbado en el pasado.

Hacen falta estudios longitudinales sobre el papel de la diabetes como factor de riesgo para demencia. Objetivo Determinar el riesgo de demencia en sujetos Mexicanos con diabetes mellitus tipo 2. Materiales y Metodos Los sujetos diabéticos libres de demencia pertenecientes al Estudio Nacional de Salud y Envejecimiento en México fueron evaluados a los dos años de la línea de base. Se estudió el papel de los factores sociodemográficos, de otras comorbilidades y del tipo de tratamiento en la conversión a demencia. Resultados Durante la línea de base 749 sujetos (13.8%) tuvieron diabetes. El riesgo de desarrollar demencia en estos individuos fue el doble (RR, 2.08 IC 95%, 1.59–2.73). Se encontró un riesgo mayor en individuos de 80 años y más (RR 2.44 IC 95%, 1.46–4.08), en los hombres (RR, 2.25 IC 95%, 1.46–3.49) y en sujetos con nivel educativo menor de 7 años. El estar bajo tratamiento con insulina incrementó el riesgo de demencia (RR, 2.83, IC 95%, 1.58–5.06). Las otras comorbilidades que aumentaron el riesgo de demencia en los pacientes diabéticos fueron la hipertensión (RR, 2.75, IC 95%, 1.86–4.06) y la depresión (RR, 3.78, 95% IC 2.37–6.04). Conclusión Los sujetos con diabetes mellitus tienen un riesgo mayor de desarrollar demencia, La baja escolaridad y otras comorbilidades altamente prevalentes en la población Mexicana contribuyen a la asociación diabetes-demencia.

Near-Field Deformation from the El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake Revealed by Differential LIDAR  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Large [moment magnitude (Mw) ? 7] continental earthquakes often generate complex, multifault ruptures linked by enigmatic zones of distributed deformation. Here, we report the collection and results of a high-resolution (?nine returns per square meter) airborne light detection and ranging (LIDAR) topographic survey of the 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake that produced a 120-kilometer-long multifault rupture through northernmost Baja California, Mexico. This differential LIDAR survey completely captures an earthquake surface rupture in a sparsely vegetated region with pre-earthquake lower-resolution (5-meter-pixel) LIDAR data. The postevent survey reveals numerous surface ruptures, including previously undocumented blind faults within thick sediments of the Colorado River delta. Differential elevation changes show distributed, kilometer-scale bending strains as large as ~103 microstrains in response to slip along discontinuous faults cutting crystalline bedrock of the Sierra Cucapah.

UNAVCO Response to the M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The El Mayor - Cucapah earthquake occurred close to the Mexico - U.S. border, at the edge of the EarthScope - Plate Boundary Observatory (PBO’s) footprint. UNAVCO was one of several community organizations to support event response, providing co-seismic observations from PBO’s CGPS stations, borehole strainmeters and seismometers, the shipment of a Terrestrial LiDAR Scanner, and the acquisition of InSAR data through the UNAVCO-hosted WiNSAR consortium. PBO standard 15 second GPS data spanning the event for sites throughout southern California were recorded at 100% data completeness and were used to establish co-seismic displacement hours to days following the earthquake. High-rate (1-5 Hz) GPS downloads were completed with a 97% data return and used by community members to plot co-seismic displacement waveforms. In the months following the event 1Hz GPS data has been collected a disseminated for multiple airborne lidar and photography missions. CGPS station P796, a deep-drilled braced monument, was constructed in San Luis, AZ along the border within 5 weeks of the event. In addition, UNAVCO participated in a successful University of Arizona-led proposal for the deployment of six continuous GPS stations for post-seismic observations. These stations will be installed, maintained and data analyzed by UNAVCO/PBO in coordination with CICESE, an Associate Member institution in Mexico. At present two stations (ALAX, SITX) are installed with 4 remaining permits in process.

Studies on bioflocculant production by a mixed culture of Methylobacterium sp. Obi and Actinobacterium sp. Mayor  

PubMed Central

Background Bioflocculants effect the aggregation of suspended solutes in solutions thus, a viable alternative to inorganic poly-ionic and synthetic organic flocculants which are associated with deleterious health problems. Consequently, a consortium of two bacteria species were evaluated for optimized bioflocculant yield following the inadequacies of axenic cultures. Results 16S rDNA nucleotide sequencing and BLAST analysis of nucleotide sequences were used to identify the bacterial species, carbon and nitrogen sources optimally supporting bioflocculant production were assessed and the purified bioflocculant characterized. Nucleotide sequences showed 97% and 96% similarity to Methylobacterium sp. AKB-2008-KU9 and Methylobacterium sp. strain 440. The second isolate, likewise, showed 98% similarity to Actinobacterium OR-221. The sequences were deposited in GenBank as Methylobacterium sp. Obi [accession number HQ537130] and Actinobacterium sp. Mayor [accession number JF799090]. Flocculating activity of 95% was obtained in the presence of Ca2+ and heat-stability was exhibited with retention of above 70% activity at 100°C in 30 min. In addition, bioflocculant yield was about 8.203 g/l. A dose of 1 mg/ml of purified bioflocculant was optimal for the clarification of Kaolin suspension (100 ml) following Jar test. FTIR spectrum revealed the presence of carboxyl and hydroxyl functional groups amongst others. Conclusions The mixed culture produced bioflocculant with high flocculating activity and an improved yield. The efficiency observed with jar test may imply industrial applicability.

The high-resolution terrestrial LiDAR scans of northern Mexico obtained after the April 2010, Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake (post-earthquake data), along with aerial LiDAR scans of the same area from before the earthquake (pre-earthquake data), make possible an accurate examination of the shifts in the region due to the event. We present methods for analyzing the various shifts throughout the area. We make two assumptions: (1) at a local level, excluding the area around the fault line, the features have minimal deformation, and (2) any feature was translated no more than five meters, with an optional change in orientation of no more than 15 degrees. We have developed an effective technique, where we iterate though all the points of the pre-earthquake data, using for each point a disc with a radius of 10 meters centered around each sample point, and define a feature based on all the points in this disc. Since the resolution of the pre-earthquake data is less than that of the post-earthquake data, it makes sense to define the features using pre-earthquake points. In the post-earthquake data set, we attempt to find the same feature by searching a ten-by-ten square meter grid centered at the same point as the feature from the pre-earthquake data set. Once a match has been determined, we draw a translation vector from the original position of the feature in the pre-earthquake data to the translated position of the feature in the post-earthquake data. As we draw one vector for each feature, we create a translation vector field that shows the movement caused by the earthquake.

Tectonic Geomorphology of an Active Low-Angle Normal Fault, Sierra El Mayor, Northern Baja California  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Low angle normal faults (LANF) are ubiquitously distributed throughout the northern Gulf of California. They commonly bound uplifted mountain ranges and are found in numerous seismic sections in the Altar Desert and Wagner Basin (A. Martin, unpublished data). The Canada David detachment (CDD) is a spectacular example of an active LANF that controls the western mountain front of Sierra El Mayor over a strike length of 60 Km. Like most LANFs, the CDD contains two prominent antiform-synform megamullion pairs that strongly control the tectonic geomorphology of the uplifted footwall block and alluvial terraces along the range flank. Quantitative morphometric analysis along the mountain front shows that drainage basins in antiformal domains have systematically higher outlet elevations, higher gradients, greater relief, and much greater hypsometric integrals. Additionally river valleys are narrower and dominated by bedrock channels that extend nearly to the outlet, which is consistent with the fact that mountain front sinuosity is almost an order of magnitude less in the antiformal domains. A sequence of as many as 8 different regional strath terraces are preserved along the range flank and reconnaissance dating of the deposits by cosmogenic isotopes suggests that they formed during the major interglacial-to-glacial climatic transitions. Strath terraces are generally much older, and relative heights between terraces is significantly lower in synformal domains. All of these geomorphologic characteristics suggest that the synformal domains have experienced much lower rates of uplift and erosion of the footwall and likewise lower rates of sedimentation in the adjacent hanging wall basin. The lack of slip gradients on the master fault between synformal and antiformal domains suggests that the megamullions formed instead by regional buckling perpendicular to the extension direction. A Quaternary scarp array extends along the entire length of the mountain front and also shows remarkable variations with megamullions. In antiformal domains, Quaternary scarps generally lie within 100 m of the trace of the CDD. The array is generally wider and contains numerous antithetic scarps that accommodate high ratios of horizontal to vertical deformation. In contrast, the scarp array in synformal domains is well removed (3.5-10 km) from the recessed trace of the CDD and is characterized by a narrow band of synthetic scarps. Our data are consistent with a basinward migration of deformation as envisioned in the "rolling hinge" model of detachment faulting, but we conclude that such a migration occurs predominantly in synformal domains as the fault adopts a straighter configuration.

Seismological evidence and dynamic model of reverse rupture propagation during the 2010 M7.2 El Mayor Cucapah earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake has produced some unique observations that exemplify the complexity of rupture dynamics. An eyewitness located near the fault when the rupture broke reported signatures of reverse surface rupture (rupture towards the South at a location North from the hypocenter). We report here on seismological evidence of this phenomenon and present dynamic rupture simulations that illustrate a possible mechanism. Reverse rupture propagation is not admissible in traditional source inversions, because of restrictive assumptions about the rupture kinematics adopted to reduce the non-uniqueness of the inverse problem. In contrast, source imaging by back-projection of dense array data is free from such assumptions. Recently, we have enhanced the array back-projection technique to achieve higher resolution on rupture evolution. We have also extended this approach to recordings at regional distance, despite the complexity of the regional Pn waveforms. We imaged the source of the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake by back-projecting Pn waves recorded by the SIEDCAR array in New Mexico. Our analysis reveals a segment with reverse rupture propagation consistent with the eyewitness reports. Our simulations of dynamic earthquake rupture show that reverse rupture propagation can be caused by delayed rupture of a strong fault region with a negative along-strike gradient of strength excess. In this scenario the rupture front tunnels through (or surrounds) the strong area, then starts breaking the opposite, weaker end of the strong patch, inducing a reverse rupture front.

Triggered Fault Slip in Southern California Associated with the 2010 Sierra El Mayor-Cucapah, Baja California, Mexico, Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Surface fracturing (triggered slip) occurred in the central Salton Trough and to the southwest, in the Yuha Desert area—all in association with the 4 April 2010 (M7.2) El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake and its aftershocks. Triggered slip in the central Salton Trough occurred on the ‘frequent movers’: the southern San Andreas, Coyote Creek, Superstition Hills, and Imperial Faults, all of which have slipped in previous moderate to large, local and regional earthquakes in the past five decades. Other faults in the central Salton Trough that also slipped in 2010 include the Wienert Fault (southeastern section of the Superstition Hills Fault), the Kalin Fault (in the Brawley Seismic Zone), and the Brawley Fault Zone; triggered slip had not been reported on these faults in the past. Geologic measures of slip on faults in the central Salton Trough ranged from 1 to 18 mm, and everywhere was located where previous primary (tectonic) or triggered slip has occurred. Triggered slip in the Yuha Desert area occurred along at least two dozen faults, only some of which were known before the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. From east to northwest, slip occurred in seven general areas; 1) in the Northern Centinela Fault Zone (newly named), 2) along unnamed faults south of Pinto Wash, 3) along the Yuha Fault (newly named), 4) along both east and west branches of the Laguna Salada Fault, 5) along the Yuha Well Fault Zone (newly revised name), 6) along the Ocotillo Fault (newly named), and 7) along the southeastern-most section of the Elsinore Fault. Faults that slipped in the Yuha Desert area include northwest-trending right-lateral faults, northeast-trending left-lateral faults, and north-south faults, some of which had dominantly vertical slip. Triggered slip along the Ocotillo and Elsinore Faults occurred only in association with the 14 June 2010 (M5.7) aftershock, which also initiated slip along other faults near the town of Ocotillo. Triggered slip on faults in the Yuha Desert area was most commonly less than 20 mm, but two significant exceptions are slip of about 50-60 mm on the Yuha Fault and of about 80 mm on the Ocotillo Fault. All triggered slips in the Yuha Desert area occurred along pre-existing faults, whether previously recognized or not.

Illumination of rheological mantle heterogeneity by the M7.2 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Major intracontinental strike-slip faults tend to mark boundaries between lithospheric blocks of contrasting mechanical properties along much of their length. Both crustal and mantle heterogeneities can form such boundaries, but the role of crustal versus mantle strength contrasts for localizing strain sufficiently to generate major faults remains unclear. Using the crustal velocity field observed through the Global Positioning System (GPS) in the epicentral area of the M7.2 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake, Baja California, we find that transient deformation observed after the event is anomalously small in areas of relatively high seismic velocity in the shallow upper mantle (˜50 km depth). This pattern is best explained with a laterally heterogeneous viscoelastic structure that mimics the seismic structure. The mantle of the Southern Colorado River Desert (SCRD) and Peninsular Ranges (PR), which bound the fault system to its east and west, respectively, have anomalously high viscosity and seismic velocity. We hypothesize that compared with the rest of the San Andreas fault (SAF) system to its north, the strike-slip fault system in northern Baja California is narrow because of the presence of the PR and SCRD high-viscosity regions which bound it.

Early postseismic deformation following the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake from ALOS PALSAR and campaign GPS data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 4 April 2010 M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake ruptured approximately 110 km of the plate boundary zone in northern Baja California and southern California, including a previously unmapped section through the Colorado River delta. The event was unusual in that it had a longer rupture length than other recent events of the same magnitude, perhaps a manifestation of crustal thinning in the region, in the transition between transform motion on the San Andreas-Imperial fault system to the northwest and seafloor spreading in the Gulf of California to the southeast. Here we examine the ongoing postseismic deformation that has occurred in the aftermath of the event, using a combination of InSAR and GPS time series. In order to identify the spatial pattern of postseismic deformation, we process the full archive of ALOS PALSAR data held by the Alaska Satellite Facility's USGRC datapool, spanning a nine month interval from April 2010 to January 2011. We supplement these data with campaign GPS measurements made on a series of post-earthquake campaigns in Baja California by researchers from UCR, Scripps Institiute of Oceanography and CICESE, starting one day after the event. Preliminary indications suggest that the first year of postseismic deformation was marked by i) a narrow zone of ~10 cm of subsidence bounded to the north by the Colorado delta segment of the main fault rupture; ii) a secondary area of initial subsidence located a few kilometers to the northeast of the main subsiding zone that is recovered within ~6 months of the earthquake; iii) near-field right-lateral shear of ~5 cm across the Sierra Cucapah. The first two of these deformation signals are consistent with a combination of transient poroelastic deformation and the third with shallow afterslip. Preliminary models of predicted Maxwell viscoelastic relaxation do not appear to explain this early, rapid deformation.

Coseismic and Postseismic Deformation Due to the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake Detected by ALOS/PALSAR Data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On April 4th, 2010, the Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake occurred in northeast Baja California, near the US-Mexico border. Since then, ALOS/PALSAR observed this region twenty times, which provides a rich data set to study the co- and post-seismic deformation. We first estimated the slip distribution and dip angle of the fault plane by inverting InSAR data with the method developed by Fukahata and Wright (2008). With this method, we can obtain the slip distribution on a plane fault and its dip angle simultaneously by minimizing the ABIC (Akaike's Bayesian Information Criterion). In southeastern area near the Gulf of California, we could recognize effects of liquefaction, so we did not use the data in such areas in the inversion. We assumed one sufficiently large rectangular plane fault and the strike is assumed to be 313 degrees from the north. After trials and errors, we restricted the search of the dip angle in a range of 30-90 degrees, dipping northeastward. The optimal dip angle was estimated 68 degrees, which is smaller than 82 degrees of the CMT solution (USGS). Right lateral strike slips with slight normal component were estimated, and the maximum slip of about 3m was obtained in the northwestern vicinity of the hypocenter. The total geodetic moment of our best-fitting model was in a good agreement with the seismic moment. In the postseismic period, we detected signals at two locations that can be attributed to postseismic deformation. First, we recognize some signals near the northwestern edge of the source fault in all the early postseismic interferograms (46 days after the earthquake) of both ascending and descending directions. In this area, the coseismic slip was estimated to be about 2m. We performed some forward calculations to confirm that this signal is not likely to be due to aftershocks. We computed the poroelastic deformation based on our coseismic slip model and found that the observed signal has the opposite sense. Moreover, a 2.5 dimensional analysis showed several centimeters of westward displacements, but almost none vertical component. These results suggest that this signal is due to an afterslip and/or visco-elastic response. The second postseismic signal is observed along Laguna Salada fault by a relatively long (half a year) descending interferogram. This signal is not well correlated with topography, which reduces the possibility of atmospheric noise. On the other hand, it can be reasonably explained by an afterslip above a large coseismic slip patch, although there still remains the possibility of atmospheric noise as only one interferogram captures this signal.

The 2010 M w 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake Sequence, Baja California, Mexico and Southernmost California, USA: Active Seismotectonics along the Mexican Pacific Margin

The El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake sequence started with a few foreshocks in March 2010, and a second sequence of 15 foreshocks of M > 2 (up to M4.4) that occurred during the 24 h preceding the mainshock. The foreshocks occurred along a north-south trend near the mainshock epicenter. The M w 7.2 mainshock on April 4 exhibited complex faulting, possibly starting with a ~M6 normal faulting event, followed ~15 s later by the main event, which included simultaneous normal and right-lateral strike-slip faulting. The aftershock zone extends for 120 km from the south end of the Elsinore fault zone north of the US-Mexico border almost to the northern tip of the Gulf of California. The waveform-relocated aftershocks form two abutting clusters, each about 50 km long, as well as a 10 km north-south aftershock zone just north of the epicenter of the mainshock. Even though the Baja California data are included, the magnitude of completeness and the hypocentral errors increase gradually with distance south of the international border. The spatial distribution of large aftershocks is asymmetric with five M5+ aftershocks located to the south of the mainshock, and only one M5.7 aftershock, but numerous smaller aftershocks to the north. Further, the northwest aftershock cluster exhibits complex faulting on both northwest and northeast planes. Thus, the aftershocks also express a complex pattern of stress release along strike. The overall rate of decay of the aftershocks is similar to the rate of decay of a generic California aftershock sequence. In addition, some triggered seismicity was recorded along the Elsinore and San Jacinto faults to the north, but significant northward migration of aftershocks has not occurred. The synthesis of the El Mayor-Cucapah sequence reveals transtensional regional tectonics, including the westward growth of the Mexicali Valley and the transfer of Pacific-North America plate motion from the Gulf of California in the south into the southernmost San Andreas fault system to the north. We propose that the location of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah, as well as the 1992 Landers and 1999 Hector Mine earthquakes, may have been controlled by the bends in the plate boundary.

The El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake sequence started with preshocks in March 2010, and a sequence of 15 foreshocks of M>2 (up to M4.4) that occurred during the 24 hours preceding the mainshock. The foreshocks occurred along a north-south trend near the mainshock epicenter. The Mw7.2 mainshock that occurred on the 4th of April exhibited complex faulting, possibly starting with a ~M6 normal faulting event, followed ~15 sec later by the main event, which included simultaneous normal and right-lateral strike-slip faulting. The aftershock zone extends for 120 km from the south end of the Elsinore fault zone at the US-Mexico border almost to the northern tip of the Gulf of California. The waveform-relocated aftershocks form two abutting clusters, of about equal length of 50 km each, as well as a 10 km north-south aftershock zone just north of the epicenter of the mainshock. Even though the Baja California data are included, the magnitude of completeness and the hypocentral errors increase gradually with distance to the south of the international border. The spatial distribution of large aftershocks is asymmetric with five M5+ aftershocks located to the south of the mainshock, and only one M5.7 aftershock but numerous smaller aftershocks to the north.

Spatio-temporal distribution of fault slip and high-frequency radiation of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah, Mexico earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Earthquake slip history and moment release are best resolved using long period seismic waves, but details in the rupture process, such as sharp changes in rupture velocity or direction, can be imaged more clearly using higher frequency waves. Here, we investigate the slip and the high-frequency radiation histories of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah, Baja California, Mexico earthquake (Mw 7.2). The slip distribution inferred from inversion of strong motion data between 0.02 and 0.25 Hz indicates northwest propagating rupture, followed by bilateral rupture for 40 s. The sources of high-frequency radiation between 0.3 and 2 Hz inferred from back-projection analysis using teleseismic data are adjacent to, but not within, the high-slip patches from the finite slip model in time and space. This implies relatively smooth rupture during the times and regions of maximum moment release. As theoretical models have predicted, high-frequency radiation seems mostly associated with changes in rupture velocity or slip magnitude. Strong high-frequency radiation is also found where the rupture propagated to a branch fault 50-km northwest of the hypocenter. Complementary constraints on both fault slip and high-frequency radiation provide increased understanding of earthquake rupture mechanics and may help improve strong motion evaluation at high frequencies.

Slip on faults in the Imperial Valley triggered by the 4 April 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake revealed by InSAR  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Radar interferometry (InSAR), field measurements and creepmeters reveal surface slip on multiple faults in the Imperial Valley triggered by the main shock of the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah Mw 7.2 earthquake. Co-seismic offsets occurred on the San Andreas, Superstition Hills, Imperial, Elmore Ranch, Wienert, Coyote Creek, Elsinore, Yuha, and several minor faults near the town of Ocotillo at the northern end of the mainshock rupture. We documented right-lateral slip (<40 mm) on northwest-striking faults and left-lateral slip (<40 mm) on southwest-striking faults. Slip occurred on 15-km- and 20-km-long segments of the San Andreas Fault in the Mecca Hills (?50 mm) and Durmid Hill (?10 mm) respectively, and on 25 km of the Superstition Hills Fault (?37 mm). Field measurements of slip on the Superstition Hills Fault agree with InSAR and creepmeter measurements to within a few millimeters. Dislocation models of the InSAR data from the Superstition Hills Fault confirm that creep in this sequence, as in previous slip events, is confined to shallow depths (<3 km).

Near-field coseismic deformation quantified from differential airborne LiDAR of the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake surface rupture  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We analyze a high-resolution (9 to 18 returns/m2) airborne LiDAR topographic survey of the 4 April 2010 M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah surface rupture to quantify fault slip and the amount and style of distributed near-field deformation. This is the first LiDAR survey to capture a fresh rupture in a sparsely vegetated region with pre-earthquake lower-resolution (5m-pixel) LiDAR data. The amount of distributed deformation we observe suggests the frequency of large earthquakes on secondary fault arrays may often be underestimated from geologic observations of prehistoric fault slip.The earthquake produced a 120 km-long, complex multi-segment rupture with dextral-normal slip through northernmost Baja California, Mexico. The post-event survey reveals numerous surface ruptures, including subtle distributed slip above previously undocumented faults within the Colorado River delta. Differential elevations from comparison of pre- and post-event topography quantify distributed deformation surrounding fault ruptures in the Sierra Cucapah. Folding strains up to 103?str occur in the absence of visible faulting. Shear with opposite sense to adjacent faulting demonstrates that these strains were, at least initially, elastic. Changes in shallow stress that accompanied this strain may be comparable to the coseismic stress drop at seismogenic depth. We speculate that distributed mechanisms, such as granular deformation and velocity strengthening creep on small faults, relaxed these stresses post-seismically and rendered this shallow, distributed deformation into permanent fault-related folding.

Simulation of Long-Period Ground Motion in the Imperial Valley Area during the Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah mainshock of April 4 2010 caused significant long-period ground-motion in the Imperial Valley and Mexicali area, and was recorded by ~25 strong motion stations located on the Imperial Valley sediments. It provides an excellent opportunity to study wave propagation effects in deep sedimentary basins, to test the accuracy of the basin models, and to test our capabilities to predict long-period ground motion from numerical simulations. We have generated a series of dynamic rupture models constrained by fault geometry, hypocenter location and reported surface displacement, along a ~105km long stretch of the Borrego, Pescadores and Indiviso faults. Our rupture models feature surface slip of up to 2.0 m NW of the hypocenter, with buried slip under the Colorado River Delta SE of the hypocenter, emulated velocity strengthening in the near-surface, and generally subshear rupture speeds. Three of our rupture models show the following characteristics: (A) contains very limited slip (< 0.2 m) along the north-central part of the fault system where no surface rupture was observed; (B) has a more continuous slip distribution, but less slip toward the SE; and (C) is similar to model B, but with more slip in the hypocentral area. We simulate the wave propagation resulting from these three rupture models in the SCEC CVM4 on a 200x175x50 km3 grid that includes approximations of the Borrego, Pescadores and Indiviso faults, the Imperial Valley and the southern part of the Salton Sea. We use a spatial step of 100 m, which considering the minimum near-surface shear-wave velocity of 819 ms-1 (in the Imperial Valley sediments) allows us to model frequencies up to 1.5 Hz. Simulated spectral accelerations (SAs) at periods of 2s, 3s and 5s are generally consistent with the recorded strong motion data for all three rupture models. Observed SAs at 7s, however, are better reproduced by rupture models B and C than rupture model A. Velocity time histories recorded in the Imperial Valley are dominated by energetic surface waves with periods between 6 and 8 seconds, with 7s-SAs exceeding 0.10g at three sites. Synthetic time series exhibit amplification in the same period range, but often fail to reproduce the amplitude and duration of the observations. This suggests that shear-wave velocities in the velocity model and/or the applied Quality factors (Qs=50Vs, with Vs in kms-1) may need to be adjusted to reproduce the observations more accurately. Snapshots show that surface waves are generated predominantly at the basin edges near the NW end of the rupture in the simulations. These surface waves are then propagating NE across the Imperial basin, and serve as a possible explanation for the dominant long-period surface waves observed in the strong motion data. Furthermore, the coupling of source directivity and basin edge effects suggests that the simulated ground motion in the Imperial Valley is highly sensitive to near-surface peak slip rates near the NW end of the rupture.

This past week, Mayor Dave Bing signed an agreement with Governor Rick Snyder that will prevent the city from having to declare bankruptcy, which seemed like a solution that was in the best interest of many stakeholders, including residents of the Motor City. The city currently holds long-term debt that is close to $12 billion, and the hope is that this cooperative agreement will address the city's long-term fiscal problems. As part of his commitment to the process, Governor Snyder launched a website ("Detroit Can't Wait") that states that "in the short term the streetlights are on at night and the trash is picked up." The city will also have to review long-term contracts and agreements with a number of its unionized employees, which may also be a difficult and involved process. The city can ill afford to wait to move forward, as without new loans Detroit will run out of cash in mid-May.The first link leads to a piece from last week's The Economist which talks about Detroit's recent financial woes. The second link will take visitors to a good report on the recent deal between the city and the state government filed by NPR as part of their "Tell Me More" series. The third link will whisk users away to a piece on "blotting" in Detroit. As the NPR feature describes it, "blotting" is the process by which some Detroit residents are annexing vacant lots around their own property and making use of this otherwise abandoned land. The fourth link leads to an editorial from this Monday's Port Huron Times Herald on this recent decision that notes that "the troubled city [Detroit] truly has embarked on the long road to right itself." Moving along, the fifth link leads to a piece from this Tuesday's Detroit News about the financial situation of the world-famous Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The last link will take interested parties to the website created by Governor Snyder to inform Michigan residents and members of the public about the ongoing situation in Detroit regarding the city's financial health.

Ensino de astronomia no 1o. e 2o. ciclos do nível fundamental e na educação de jovens e adultos: exemplos e discussões  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tem-se constatado uma preocupante carência no ensino de astronomia nos diversos níveis de escolaridade. Neste trabalho discutimos várias práticas didático-pedagógicas que vimos desenvolvendo para crianças, jovens e adultos em processo de alfabetização, visando contribuir para reparar aquela carência. Propomos uma metodologia que incorpora as recentes exigências das políticas públicas educacionais, estimula o desenvolvimento de textos e materiais instrucionais, é compatível com a realidade desse público e é adaptável às respectivas faixas etárias. A observação do céu sempre esteve presente na vida de nossos antepassados, dando suporte à compreensão do ser humano como integrante da natureza. Visamos com este trabalho suprir a deficiência encontrada para se tratar a relação do ser humano com o céu, no ambiente escolar. Os resultados são animadores e envolvem práticas e textos que desenvolvemos e atividades realizadas pelos alunos. No primeiro grupo destacamos o desenvolvimento de várias práticas: "viagem aos planetas" (construímos o "foguete", os planetas em escala, contamos história e redigimos texto de orientação para os professores); "gnômon humano" (os próprios corpos dos alunos são usados para registrar o movimento aparente do Sol); "crateras da Lua" (concretização de "meteoritos" e "solo lunar" de gesso e exploração da relação entre energia cinética do bólido e tamanho da cratera formada); etc. No segundo grupo, produções de desenhos e redações e discussões dos alunos após a realização de cada prática, revelam que estas têm se mostrado muito eficientes, tanto para estimular a imaginação e a fantasia dos envolvidos, como para trabalhar-se habilidades, competências e conteúdos relacionados à astronomia, segundo uma perspectiva interdisciplinar contextualizada.

Surface rupture and slip variation induced by the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake, Baja California, quantified using COSI-Corr analysis on pre- and post-earthquake LiDAR acquisitions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

One-hundred and three years after the publication of the Lawson report on the Great 1906 earthquake, accurate documentation of surface deformation along the entire length of an earthquake is still challenging. Analysis of pre- and post-earthquake topographic data provides an opportunity to deliver the full 3D displacement field of the ground's surface. However, direct differencing of a pre- and post-earthquake digital topography model (DEM) generally leads to biased estimation of the vertical component of the deformation. Indeed, if the earthquake also produced significant horizontal motion, or if the pre- and post-earthquake DEM acquisitions exhibit non-negligible horizontal mis-registration, then the vertical offset measured by direct differencing will be biased by the local topography gradient. To overcome this limitation, we use the COSI-Corr sub-pixel correlation algorithm to estimate the relative horizontal offset between the pre- and post- 2010 El Mayor - Cucapah earthquake high resolution LiDAR acquisitions. Compensating for the horizontal offset between the two LiDAR acquisitions allows us to estimate unbiased measurements of the vertical component of the surface fault rupture induced by the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. We will also show the limitations of the available data set, such as aircraft jitter artifacts, which impaired accurate measurements of the horizontal component of the surface deformation. This analysis shows an unprecedented view of the complete vertical slip component of the rupture induced by the Mw 7.2 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake, sampled at every 5 m, over a length of about 100 km, and with a vertical accuracy of a few centimeters. Using sampling bins as narrow as 150 m and 1.5 km long, variations in the vertical component of an oblique slip earthquake are presented, with breaks along multiple fault-strands showing opposite dip directions and diffuse boundaries. With the availability of high precision pre- and post-earthquake data, COSI-Corr has the ability to accurately document the variability of 3D surface slip along strike of an earthquake rupture. Such data can be used to investigate the causes of this variability, and improve our understanding of its influence on the pattern of ground shaking.

Structural Controls on the Surface Rupture Associated with the Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake of 4 April 2010: A Comparative Analysis of Scarp Array Kinematics, Orientation, Lithology and Width  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake revealed the existence of a previously unidentified plate-margin fault system that extends 120 km from the northern tip of the Gulf of California to the international border. The system is composed of at least 6 major faults linked by numerous smaller faults. We observed that localized kinematics on individual faults vary systematically with fault orientation. Faults with strikes ranging from N72W-N68W, N67W-N13W, N12W-N08W and N07W-N47E have kinematics dominated by dextral, oblique-dextral normal, normal, and oblique normal-sinistral shear, respectively. Stress inversion of the kinematic data yields high phi values (0.65-0.8) with sigma-1 close in magnitude to sigma-2 and sigma-3 oriented sub-horizontally with an azimuth of S80W. This demonstrates that kinematic variations of the 2010 rupture are most strongly controlled by regional stress related to transtensional shearing between the Pacific and North American plates. Detailed mapping of the surface rupture through the Sierra Cucapah demonstrates that scarp array width (or total local width of the rupture zone) ranges from 5 to 400 m and varies systematically with rock type, fault orientation, and fault kinematics. We classified seventy-one discrete fault segments according to the lithologies they juxtapose and in general scarp-array width increases in the following order: basement-on-basement, sediment-on-basement and sediment-on-sediment faults. Dips of the master faults vary from 30° to 85° and this parameter shows the strongest correlation with scarp array width, which increases dramatically with more shallowly dipping master faults. When faults are classified by both lithology and dip, interesting patterns emerge to show systematic variations in width with strike. Sediment-on-sediment faults that dip greater than 45° show a sinusoidal variation of strike versus width. Width is minimized with faults that strike ~N68W and ~N08W, which correspond well with the orientations of pure dextral and pure normal slip, respectively. Width is maximized with faults that strike ~N30W, which correspond well with the orientations of oblique dextral-normal slip. Therefore, scarp array width increases with the increasing kinematic complexity of oblique slip. Based on stress inversion, the oblique slip segments have higher shear stress, which we conclude is an important factor controlling scarp array width. The predictive power resulting from this parametric analysis may allow refined assessments of future fault surface rupture hazards for critical facilities and lifeline fault crossings.

Late Quaternary Range-Front Fault Scarps in the Western Sierra El Mayor, Baja California, Mexico: A Geomorphologic Expression of Slip Across an Active Low-Angle Normal Fault  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The western margin of the Sierra El Mayor (SEM), in northeastern Baja California, is controlled by an active, top-to-the-west, low-angle normal fault named the Canada David detachment (CDD) that accommodates part of the extensional component of shearing between the Pacific and North American plates. The CDD has a length of 60 km and shows a curvilinear trace with two major antiformal and synformal megamullion pairs. Late Quaternary slip has produced a broad array of Quaternary scarps cutting alluvial fans along nearly the entire length of the CDD. Detailed mapping reveals eight regional strath terraces distinguished by surface weathering characteristics, soil profile development and relative elevation. Relative height between terraces increases in domains where the CDD and basin deposits are being uplifted due to either the basinward migration of faulting (e.g., rolling hinge) or flexural uplift in antiformal megamullion domains. Linear diffusion analysis of 46 synthetic fault scarps, with a calculated angle of repose ?o = 28.75°, reveal fault scarp domains exhibiting both multi-modal and unimodal distribution of diffusion ages (kt). Uni-modal domains are typically younger, but there is no systematic variation in scarp age with distance along the CDD. Scarps yielding negative kt ages (i.e. scarps steeper than ?o) are common in the north, near inferred locations of important historic seismic events. Microseismicity drops off significantly adjacent to these very young scarp arrays, which likely reflects a recent post-seismic stress drop. Domains of high seismic risk are identified by high microseismicity and lack of young scarps. Minimum estimates of the diffusivity constant (k) are calculated by coupling scarp diffusion ages and 10Be surface exposure ages of the faulted deposits. In the southernmost SEM a Q6 terrace with a minimum surface exposure age t = 233±6.6 ky (weighted mean of six rock samples) is cut by scarps with an average kt = 11.25±9.31 m2, which yields a minimum k = 0.05±0.04 m2/ky. Scarps cutting Q4 terraces yield diffusion ages (kt = 0.16±0.04 m2) consistent with the inferred post-glacial age of the four youngest terraces.

Prenatal care. Appointment study: a survey by the Infant Mortality Work Group of the Mayor's Advisory Council on Child Health.  

PubMed Central

This biopsy of the prenatal care system provides plain evidence of weaknesses within the infrastructure and details the inconveniences New York City women who rely on public services must face. The unwillingness of some of the municipal clinics to accept pregnancy test results from their sister hospitals or the Department of Health's free-pregnancy testing program exemplifies one of the bureaucratic barriers in the system, and one which could be rectified easily given sufficient determination. Other bureaucratic barriers, such as the inability to schedule an appointment unless a woman is registered at the clinic, suggest the need for a media campaign urging women of reproductive age to register with a health care provider before becoming pregnant. The solution to the language barrier confronted by Spanish women requires a commitment to hiring bilingual clerical staff. Lastly, the problems of being placed "on-hold" or frequent busy signals and the high number of clinic visits made before seeing a physician can only be ameliorated by an increase in funding for prenatal care clinic staffing, for support staff and professionals alike. The survey, conducted over the course of 2 weeks with available city staff and equipment, is a relatively inexpensive and effective method for evaluating the prenatal care system and should be repeated in order to document systematically the anecdotal reports shared by clinic administration and clinic patients alike.

Evolución química e historia de la formación estelar en el disco de la Nube Mayor de Magallanes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present Washington system colour-magnitude diagrams for 8 LMC inner disc star clusters and their surrounding fields. Ages and metallicities are determined for both stellar populations in two different ways: (1) By using theoretical isochrones recently calculated for the Washington system. (2) By using the ?T1 parameter defined by Geisler et al. (1997, AJ, 114, 1920) and the standard giant branches of Geisler & Sarajedini (1999, AJ, 117, 308). For this latter metallicity derivation, we present age-dependent metallicity corrections for intermediate-age clusters (IACs). The two methods are in good agreement with each other. All clusters are found to be IACs (1-3 Gyr), with [Fe/H] from -0.2 to -1.0. We find that the stellar population of each star cluster is generally quite similar to that of the field where it is embedded, sharing its mean age and metallicity. Combining the present sample with those obtained for other 30 clusters using the same technique we arrive at the following conclusions: (1) The most recent stellar formation events have occurred in the central part of the LMC. (2) On average, the inner disc star clusters are younger and more metal-rich than the outer disc star ones. (3) The best description of the age- metallicity relationship in the LMC is a bursting formation mechanism, with an important event centred at ˜ 2 Gyr. (4) In the outer disc, the field star formation seems to have lasted until 2 Gyrs ago, while it continued in the inner disc for almost 1 Gyr longer. (5) There exist some evidence of a metal abundance gradient in the LMC disc.

Effects of the El Mayor Cucapah April 4, 2010 earthquake and water management decisions on the Colorado River Delta tidal inundation patterns: implications for shorebirds habitat availability  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Upper Gulf of California and Colorado River Delta (CRD) provide feeding and resting areas for migratory and resident shorebirds. Coastal and inland wetlands create a variety of habitats that support 31 shorebird species. Total shorebirds during the winter and spring migration ranges from 56,156 to 195,073. The Cienega de Santa Clara is an artificial wetland that receives saline water inflows from the United States, and the southeastern portion (the Santa Clara Slough) receives a mix of brackish effluent from the Cienega and occasional tidal inundation during extreme high tides. This transitional wetland between the sea and the land is one of the main shorebird aggregation areas within the CRD, supporting 29 to 75% of the individuals using the entire Upper Gulf and CRD. The Cienega de Santa Clara is currently experiencing a 30% reduction in inflows due to operation of the Yuma Desalting Plant in the United States. The 2010 Baja California earthquake caused changes in the tidal water inflows patterns in the delta. Time sequence Landsat images and aerial observations showed that a new wetland area has been created since tidal water inflows are now diverted from the southeast edge of the Cienega to the southwest areas due to subsidence effects. The aim of this study was to document the changes in the shorebird inland habitats to predict shifts in shorebird habitat use by using aerial and ground surveys before and after the earthquake. Preliminary results shows that some of the areas with a high density of shorebird use has dried out mainly as a consequence of the reduction in water inflows to the Cienega from the United States and diversion of water from the Santa Clara Slough to the new tidal basins northwest of the Slough. Aerial surveys suggest that shorebirds were not yet visiting the new wetland area during the past spring migration and were more abundant over the San Felipe coastline and Montague Island. Shorebird habitat has been influenced by a combination of water management decisions, tidal dynamics, and landform changes due to the recent seismic event in the CRD. Further monitoring is needed to determine if shorebirds will relocate to new habitat or diminish in numbers in this important ecosystem.

Gold for ubiquitin in Vancouver: First Conference on Proteomics of Protein Degradation and Ubiquitin Pathways held June 6-8, 2010 in Vancouver, University of British Columbia, organized By Lan Huang, Thibault Mayor, and Peipei Ping.  

PubMed

The rise of proteomics has had tremendous influence on analysis and understanding of the role of post-translational modifications in biological processes. The covalent attachment of small proteins like ubiquitin, SUMO,(1) or other ubiquitin-like proteins (Ubls) is one class of post-translational modifications where proteomics has had notable impact. Various proteomics approaches, but in particular mass spectrometry-based analyses, have influenced the field and enabled significant advances over the past few years. The first meeting dedicated to proteomics of protein degradation and ubiquitin pathways showcased these advances and allowed a glimpse at future contributions of proteomics to this field. With its many attractive drug targets, the ubiquitin and proteasome system, as well as other proteolysis pathways, could offer new therapies for various human diseases including cancer and neurodegenerative disorders. The covalent linkage of ubiquitin to other proteins is catalyzed by the E1-E2-E3 cascade of enzymatic reactions whereby the many different E3 ubiquitin ligases provide substrate specificity to the process of protein ubiquitylation (1). Ubiquitylation is best known for targeting proteins for degradation by the proteasome, but other functions for ubiquitylation independent of proteolysis are also known. Likewise, modifications with SUMO or other Ubls generally do not regulate protein degradation but instead control subcellular localization, protein interactions, or change protein conformation and activity (2). The questions addressed by proteomics approaches to ubiquitylation and Ubl modifications are plentiful. They range from very specific, e.g. determination of the modified residue in a substrate protein, to complex, such as protein dynamics in proteome-wide ubiquitin (or Ubl) modification profiles (3). In either case, the rapid technological advancements (particularly in mass spectrometry instrumentation as well as quantitation and separation technologies) have allowed impressive progress, which was evident in the First Conference on Proteomics of Protein Degradation and Ubiquitin Pathways in Vancouver (http://ppdup.org/) (Fig. 1).

Coseismic Deformations Associated with the M=7.2, April 04, 2010, El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake, Observed from Leveling Survey, Geotechnical Instruments and Water Level Changes in the Mexicali Valley  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A first order, second class leveling survey in the Mexicali Valley had been just finished in February 2010, for a project carried out by CICESE (Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education of Ensenada), IMTA (Mexican Institute of Water Technology) and CONAGUA (National Water Comission). Immediately after the M=7.2 earthquake the survey was repeated along 240 km of the profiles in the area of the Cerro Prieto pull-apart basin. The leveling started at the LN00 GPS monument in La Puerta. Overall, an uplift of about 30 cm towards the NE, along the 38 km line, in direction SW-NE is observed with larger gradient to the South of the area. Three subsidence bowls differ from this general pattern. One, south from Ejido Saltillo, with the relative subsidence of 19 cm (considering the displacement at LN00 as zero subsidence), probably reflects subsidence of the Saltillo-Guerrero graben; the second, with a subsidence of 23 cm, is situated south from Ejido Nuevo Leon and can be related to the subsidence triggered by the earthquake in the production area of Cerro Prieto IV. For the third one, with relative depth of 36 cm, situated close to Zacamoto, the southeastern limit cannot be determined, so only a comparison with other methods can explain the origin of this anomaly. All the subsidence bowls are associated with liquefaction observed in the area, with more liquefaction observed close to Zacamoto. Since 1996, CICESE has been operating a network of geotechnical instruments (REDECVAM) for continuous recording of deformation related to tectonic (seismic and interseismic) phenomena, as well as anthropogenic deformation caused by the deep fluid extraction at the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field. The instruments are installed along the faults which limit the Cerro Prieto pull-apart basin at a distance from 8 to 15 km from the epicenter. Coseismic step-like groundwater level changes ranging from 0.4 to 5.0 meters were recorded at 4 wells in the Cerro Prieto Pull apart-basin equivalent to coseismic volumetric strain field, in the depth of the piezometers, of the order of 10-6 - 10-5. Instruments installed along the “continuation of the Cerro Prieto” fault recorded vertical slip of 6 cm, and inclination changes of ~700 microradians, with 10 cm vertical slip measured with a ruler at the surface, Instruments installed on the Saltillo fault recorded up to 3000 microradians change, and vertical and horizontal displacements, measured manually, were of the order of centimeters. The Morelia fault had about 30 cm vertical displacement measured manually. The displacement velocities observed by the instruments are much larger than the aseismic slip velocities or triggered slip velocities observed previously in this area. A comparison between leveling results and geotechnical observations suggests that the magnitude of deformation observed by the instruments is confirmed by the leveling only in the Saltillo-Guerrero graben, thus suggesting that the observed slip triggered on the Morelia and Cerro Prieto faults is shallow.

The efficacy of quetiapine in the treat- ment of mood disorders, particularly in the manic and depressive phases of Bipolar Disorder (BD), is well estab- lished. It has been proposed that quetiapine acts as a mood-stabilizer due to its unique pharmacologic properties. The Authors present three case-reports of favourable response to this second generation antipsychotic agent: a case of Major

A protocol for storage and long-distance shipment of Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) eggs. II. Assessment of the optimal temperature and the substrate for male-only production  

SciTech Connect

The present study has been conducted to assess the effect and interaction of various storage substrates and conditions on eggs of the Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly) Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). Tests were carried out with the genetic sexing strain VIENNA 8/D53, a strain that carries a temperature sensitive lethal (tsl) mutation that allows the selective killing of female zygotes. This study identifies strategies to enhance the storage and transport conditions through assessment of effect on egg, pupal and adult survival in order to facilitate the establishment of satellite mass rearing facilities for the production of male medflies. Eggs were immersed in two different substrates and stored at different temperatures and for different time periods. Findings from this study suggest that egg storage periods, and to some extent, the storage substrates have significant effects on pupal and adult survival. For 72-h storage periods, the eggs preserved in agar solution at 10 deg. C produced the most pupae. There was an inverse relationship between the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the substrate during storage and the quality and survival of the stored/transported eggs. Apparently low levels of dissolved oxygen reduce metabolic rates, allowing the storage period to be prolonged. (author) [Spanish] El presente estudio fue conducido para evaluar el efecto e interaccion de varios substratos y condiciones de almacenamiento en huevos de la mosca mediterranea de la fruta, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann). Las pruebas se realizaron con la cepa en la cual es posible separar los sexos geneticamente VIENNA 8/D53, la cual contiene una mutacion letal sensible a la temperatura que permite la eliminacion selectiva de los zigotos femeninos. Este estudio identifica estrategias para mejorar las condiciones de almacenamiento y transporte por medio de la evaluacion de su efecto en la supervivencia de huevos, pupas y adultos, esto para facilitar el establecimiento de laboratorios satelites de cria masiva para la produccion de machos de la mosca mediterranea de la fruta. Los huevos fueron sumergidos en dos substratos diferentes y almacenados a diferente temperatura a diferentes periodos tiempos. Los resultados de este estudio sugieren que el periodo y hasta cierto punto el substrato de almacenamiento tienen un efecto significativo en la supervivencia de las pupas y los adultos. Para un periodo de almacenamiento de 72-h los huevos almacenados en solucion de agar a 10 deg. C producen un numero mayor de pupas. Hubo una relacion inversa entre la concentracion de oxigeno disuelto en el substrato durante el almacenamiento y la calidad y supervivencia de los huevos almacenados/transportados. Aparentemente los niveles bajos de oxigeno disuelto reducen el metabolismo y permiten que el periodo de almacenamiento pueda ser prolongado. (author)

Tools for evaluating Lipolexis oregmae (Hymenoptera: Aphidiidae) in the field: Effects of host aphid and host plant on mummy location and color plus improved methods for obtaining adults  

SciTech Connect

Lipolexis oregmae Gahan was introduced into Florida in a classical biological control program directed against the brown citrus aphid, Toxoptera citricida (Kirkaldy), on citrus. Prior to evaluating distribution, host range, and potential nontarget effects of L. oregmae in Florida, we evaluated the role of other potential host aphids and host plants on mummy production and location. Under laboratory conditions, this parasitoid produced the most progeny on the target pest, the brown citrus aphid on citrus. This parasitoid, unlike the majority of aphidiids, did not produce mummies on any of the host plants tested when reared in black citrus aphid T. aurantii (Boyer de Fonscolombe) on grapefruit, spirea aphid Aphis spiraecola Patch on grapefruit and pittosporum, cowpea aphid A. craccivora Koch on grapefruit and cowpeas, or melon aphid A. gossypii Glover on grapefruit and cucumber. Thus, sampling for L. oregmae mummies of these host aphids and host plants must involve holding foliage in the laboratory until mummies are produced. This parasitoid requires high relative humidity to produce adults because no adults emerged when mummies were held in gelatin capsules, but high rates of emergence were observed when mummies were held on 1.5% agar plates. In addition, we compared the color of 6 aphid hosts and the color of mummies produced by L. oregmae when reared in them to determine if color of mummies could be used to identify L. oregmae . Mummy color varied between aphid hosts and tested host plants, and is not a useful tool for identifying L. oregmae for nontarget effects. (author) [Spanish] Lipolexis oregmae Gahan fue introducida en Florida por medio de un programa de control biologico clasico dirigido contra el afido pardo de los citricos, Toxoptera citricida (Kirkaldy), sobre Citrus. Prioritario a la evaluacion de la distribucion, el rango de los hospederos y los efectos potenciales de L. oregmae sobre los organismos que no son el enfoque de control en la Florida, nosotros evaluamos el papel de otras especies de afidos y plantas hospederas potenciales sobre la produccion y ubicacion de las momias. Bajo condiciones de laboratorio, este parasitoide produjo el mayor numero de progenies sobre la especie de plaga enfocada, el afido pardo de los citricos sobre Citrus . Este parasitoide, no como la mayoria de los afidiidos (Hymenoptera), no produjo momias sobre cualquiera de las plantas hospederas probadas cuando fue criado sobre el afido negro de los citricos, ( T. aurantii (Boyer de Fonscolombe)) en toronja, el afido spirea (Aphis spiraecola Patch) en toronja y pittosporum, el afido del caupi (A. craccivora Koch) en toronja y caupi o el afido del melon (A. gossypii Glover) en toronja y pepino. Asi, el muestreo para momias de L. oregmae de estas especies de afidos hospederos y plantas hospederas tiene que incluir el mantenimiento de follaje en el laboratorio hasta que se produzcan las momias. Este parasitoide requiere una alta humedad relativa para producir los adultos por que ningun adulto emergio cuando las momias fueron mantenidas en capsulas de gelatina, pero una tasa alta de emergencia de adultos fue observada cuando se mantuvo las momias en platos con agar al 1.5%. Ademas de esto, nosotros comparamos el color de 6 especies de afidos hospederos, asi como el color de las momias producidos por L. oregmae cuando fue criado sobre ellos para determinar si se puede usar el color de las momias para la identificacion de L. oregmae . El color de las momias varia entre las especies de afidos hospederos y las plantas hospederas probadas, por lo que no es una herramienta util para la identificacion de L. oregmae o para la evaluacion de su efecto sobre los organismos que no son el enfoque del control.

Dispersal and longevity of wild and mass-reared Anastrepha Ludens and Anastrepha Obliqua (Diptera: Tephritidae)  

SciTech Connect

The rates of dispersal and survival of sterile mass-reared laboratory flies and sterile wild flies of Anastrepha ludens (Loew) and Anastrepha obliqua (Macquart) were estimated and compared with a regular rectangular array of 64 food-baited traps spaced 60 m between traps around the release point in Tapachula Chiapas, Mexico. The traps were scored every day during the first week, and then every 3 d over a 30-d period. For A. obliqua, the number of males recaptured was higher than that of females, while for A. ludens, females were recaptured more frequently than males. The recapture rate for the wild strains ranged from 0.6-24.8% for A. ludens and 1.3-16.2% for A. obliqua and the corresponding ranges for the mass-reared strains were 0.5-7.1% and 0.5-3.0% respectively. The life expectancy was 4.7 d for wild and 4.3 d for mass-reared A. obliqua males but 3 and 2 d, respectively, for wild and mass-reared A. ludens males. The net displacement of A. ludens and A. obliqua ranged approximately from 100-250 m and took place mostly on the first day. Wild A. ludens moved to the northwest from the release point while the mass-reared strain moved to the west. The A. obliqua wild flies moved to the west, while the mass-reared strain shifted to the southwest. We discuss the implications of our findings as to the spacing and frequency of sterile fly releases for the suppression of wild populations.

Las trampas fueron revisadas y evaluadas diariamente durante la primera semana y despues cada tres dias hasta completar 30 dias. Para A. obliqua la cantidad de machos capturados fue mayor que la cantidad de hembras; mientras que para A. ludens las hembras fueron capturadas con mayor frecuencia que los machos. La recaptura de moscas silvestres de A. ludens fue de 0.6 a 24.8%, para A. obliqua fue del 1.3 al 16.2%, para moscas de laboratorio fue de 0.5 a 7.1 y 0.5 a 3%, respectivamente. La esperanza de vida correspondio a 4.7 y 4.3 dias para machos silvestres y de laboratorio de A. obliqua respectivamente; mientras que 3 y 2 dias fueron para los machos silvestres y de laboratorio de A. ludens . La dispersion para A. ludens y A. obliqua fue de 100 a 250 m tanto para individuos silvestres como de laboratorio. Los adultos de A. ludens silvestre se desplazaron del punto central de liberacion al noroeste, los individuos de laboratorio se movieron hacia el oeste del plano Cartesiano. A su vez los adultos de A. obliqua silvestre se movieron hacia el oeste y las de laboratorio hacia el suroeste. Discutimos las implicaciones de nuestros resultados con relacion al espaciamiento y frecuencia de las liberaciones de moscas esteriles para la supresion de poblaciones silvestres. (author)

Monotherapy with meropenem versus combination therapy with ceftazidime plus amikacin as empiric therapy for fever in granulocytopenic patients with cancer.

PubMed Central

Combinations of beta-lactams plus aminoglycosides have been standard therapy for suspected infections in granulocytopenic cancer patients, especially those with profound long-lasting granulocytopenia. With the advent of new broad-spectrum bactericidal antibiotics such as extended-spectrum cephalosporins or carbapenems, the need to combine beta-lactams with aminoglycosides became more controversial. The objective of this prospective randomized multicenter study was to compare the efficacy, safety, and tolerance of meropenem monotherapy with those of the combination of ceftazidime plus amikacin for the empirical treatment of fever in granulocytopenic cancer patients. Of 1,034 randomized patients, 958 were assessable in the intent-to-treat analysis for response to antibacterial therapy, including 483 in the meropenem group and 475 in the ceftazidime-plus-amikacin group. The median durations of neutropenia were 16 and 17 days, respectively. A successful outcome was reported in 270 of 483 (56%) patients treated with monotherapy compared with 245 of 475 (52%) patients treated with the combination group (P = 0.20). The success rates in the monotherapy group and the combination group were similar by type of infection (single gram-negative bacteremia, single gram-positive bacteremia, clinically documented infection, and possible infection). The occurrence of further infections assessed in patients for whom the allocated regimen was not modified did not differ between the two groups (12% in both groups). Mortality due to the presenting infection or further infection was relatively low (8 patients treated with the monotherapy compared with 13 patients treated with the combination). A total of 1,027 patients were evaluable for adverse events; the proportion of those who developed adverse effects was similar between the two groups (29% in both groups), and only 19 (4%) patients in the monotherapy group and 31 (6%) in the combination group experienced an adverse event related or probably related to the study drug. Allergic reactions were the only reason for stopping the protocol antibiotic(s) (3 and 5 patients, respectively). This study confirms that monotherapy with meropenem is as effective as the combination of ceftazidime plus amikacin for the empiric treatment of fever in persistently granulocytopenic cancer patients, and both regimens were well tolerated.

'Empleo de indices puntuales de abundancia (IPA) para demostrar la perdida de aves forestales en bosques aislados'. En Maryland, E.U., se seleccionaron bloques boscosos de diferente superficie, divididos en seis clase de tamano (2,8-6 ha, 7-14, 20-30, 34-80, 105-1300, mayores de 4000 ha). En estas ?islas' forestales fue programado un conjunto de muestreos puntuales con estas caracteristicas: 1) Cada punto se visito tres veces. 2) En cada visita se hicieron cuatro censos consecutivos de 5 minutos de duracion, empleando diferentes simbolos para machos cantores, adultos no cantores, aves en vuelo y aves inmaduras. 3) Los conteos se hicieron en tres epocas: final de Mayo, mitad de Junio y final de Junio. 4) Se dividio el tiempo de censo en tres priodos horarios: 5,15-6,30 ; 6,30-8; 8-9,30 hrs. 5) Los puntos se agruparon en co juntos de 4 a 9, considerando que un conjunto es el nlimero que un observador puede cubrir por manana. 6) La vegetacion fue descrita exhaustivamente en cuanto composicion y fisionomla. El principal objetivo que se busca consiste en conocer los requisitos areales de ciertas especies de bosque muy sensibles a la fragmentacion del habitat. Puede observarse (Figura 1) que una serie de migrantes de largo alcance se asientan en relacion con el aumento de la superficie del rodal arbo1ado, sabre todo en macizos de 4.000 o mas hectareas. Sin embargo, las especies sedentarias (Fig. 2) tienen pauta de presencia irregular en funcion del area, forestal, con tendencia a presentarse menos en los bosques mas extensos, Dryocopus pileatus, por excepcion, reacciona negativamente al pequeno tamano de la parcela arbolado, prefiriendo bosques grandes. Parecida respuesta da tambien Sitta carolinensis. Aunque se sabe poco de las exigencias areales de las aves forestales americanas, el metodo de los IPA resulta muy adecuado para esta clase de investigacion de tanto interes en gestion ambiental, posibilitando colectar gran cantidad de datos comparables en un periodo de tiempo muy corto.

The effects of training in time-limited dynamic psychotherapy: changes in therapeutic outcome.  

PubMed

The present study explored the effects on therapeutic outcomes of training therapists in brief manualized therapy. As part of the Vanderbilt II project, each of 16 therapists (8 psychiatrists and 8 clinical psychologists) treated 2 moderately disturbed adult patients using his or her customary short-term treatment methods; they then received a year of training in a manualized form of brief dynamic therapy, Time-Limited Dynamic Psychotherapy (TLDP); finally, they administered TLDP to 2 additional patients. It was hypothesized that training would result in improved outcomes generally and that differentially greater improvement would be seen in patients commonly considered less suitable for brief dynamic therapy. Outcome data obtained at termination failed to support either hypothesis. Measurements of interpersonal dependency obtained at a one-year follow-up were consistent with the first hypothesis, but the follow-up data were inconsistent with the second. A systematic review of the 32 posttraining cases suggested that the majority of the therapists had not achieved basic competence at TLDP. Die hier beschriebene Studie untersucht die Wirkungen eines Trainings in manualisierter Kurzzeitherapie auf das Therapierergebnis. Als Teil des Vanderbilt II Projektes behandelten jeweils 16 Therapeuten (8 Psychiater und 8 klinische Psychologen) zwei mittelgradig beeinrächtigte erwachsene Patienten mit den ihnen vertrauten Kurzzeitbehandlungsmethoden. Danach wurden sie über ein Jahr in einer manualisierten Form psychodynamischer Kurzzeittherapie ausgebildet und wandten diese Therapie auf zwei weitere Patienten an. Es wurde angenommen, dass die Ausbildung in besseren Ergebnisdaten, die bei Ende der Therapie erhoben wurden, konnten diese Hypothese nicht bestätigen. Maße für die interpersonale Abhängigkeit zu einem Einjahreskatamnesezeitpunkt waren mit der ersten Hypothese konform, aber inkonsistent mit der zweiten. Eine systematische Untersuchung der 32 nach der Ausbildung behandelten Fälle legt nahe, dass die Mehrzahl der Therapeuten keine grundlegende Kompetenz in zeitlich limitierter dynamischer Psychotherapie erworben hatte. Cette éude explore les effets sur les résultats thérapeutiques de la formation des thérapeutes dans une thérapie brève, manualissée. Dans le cadre du projet Vanderbilt II, chacun des 16 thérapeutes (8 psychiatrs et 8 psychologues cliniciens) a traité deux patients adultes modérément perturbés, chacun par sa méthode habituelle de thérapie brève; ensuite ils ont reçu une formation d'une année dans une méthode manualisée de thérapie brève, la Psychothérapie Dynamique Limitée dans le Temps (TLDP); pour finir, ils ont appliqué la TLDP à de meilleurs résultats en général, et qu'une amélioration comparativement plus importante sera observée chez des patients habituellement considérés comme moins adaptés à une thérapie dynamique brè. Les résultats obtenus à la terminaison n'ont pu confirmer aucune de ces hypothèses. Des mesures de la dépendance interpersonnelle une année après étaient consistantes avec la première hypothèse, mais les données catamnestiques étaient inconsistantes avec la deuxième. Une revue systématique des 32 cas après formation a suggéré que la majorité des thérapeutes n'avait pas acquis une compétence de base en TLDP. Este estudio exploró la efectividad del entrenamiento de terapeutas en una terapia breve manualizada. Como parte del proyecto Vanderbilt II, dieciséis terapeutas (ocho psiquiatras y ocho psicólogos clínicos) trataron dos pacientes adultos mooderadamente perturbados con sus métodos habituales de tratamiento a corto plazo. Estos terapeutas recibieron luego un año de entrenamiento en terapia dinámica breve manualizada que se Ilamó Psicoterapia Dinámica de Tiempo limitado (TLDP). Finalmente, administraron esta TLDP a dos pacientes más. La hipótesis fue que el entrenamiento ilevaría, en general, a resultados mejores y que habría mayor mejoramiento en pacientes menos aptos para una terapia dinámica breve. Los resultados

One such group is CEOS for Cities, which is a national bipartisan alliance of mayors, corporate executives, university presidents, and other nonprofit leaders whose primary directive is to advance the economic competitiveness of cities. The group's executive committee includes such powerful leaders as Mayor Richard M. Daley of Chicago and Paul S. Grogan, the CEO of the Boston Foundation. One of the site's best features is the Trends and Data Analysis Reports, coupled with the Best Practice reports. Many of these documents are co-authored with other like-minded institutions, such as the Brookings Institution, and delve into such topics as What the IT Revolution Means for Regional Economic Development and Leveraging Colleges and Universities for Urban Economic Revitalization: An Action Agenda.

Magnetic Properties and Archeointensity Determination of Selected Mesoamerican Potteries (300 A.C to 1500 D.C.)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In spite of abundant archeological material available in Mexico, archeomagnetic studies are extremely scarce. In this work, we conducted systematic archeointensity measurements on some well-known archeological sites in central and eastern Mexico (e.g., Teotihuacan, Templo Mayor among others) to contribute to the relative and absolute chronology of Mesoamerica. Our sampling strategy was guided largely by Linda Manzanilla's detailed study of two of the most important archeological sites in Central Mexico, Teotihuacan, and Templo Mayor, since we sampled only materials that are already studied and provide more or less coherent archeological ages. Moreover, we incorporated data from some Mexican lava flows that erupted during historic times in order to extend the archeointensity master curve for Mexico and Mesoamerica to the present.

Steplike discontinuities in Bose-Einstein condensates and Hawking radiation: Dispersion effects  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper we extend the hydrodynamic results of {A. Fabbri and C. Mayoral, Phys. Rev. D 83, 124016 (2011).} and study, analytically, the propagation of Bogoliubov phonons on top of Bose-Einstein condensates with steplike discontinuities in the speed of sound by taking into account dispersion effects. We focus on the Hawking signal in the density-density correlations in the formation of acoustic black-hole-like configurations.

Remembering Harold: Photographs from the Harold Washington Archives and Collections  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, the late Harold Washington made history in 1983 when he was elected mayor after receiving 51 percent of the vote. Given the city's racial segregation and at times tumultuous race relations, the victory was considered a major accomplishment in the annals of Chicago history. Drawing on the collections held by the Chicago Public Library, this online exhibit offers a small glimpse into the Washington mayoral era in the city through a collection of photographs, a brief video clip, and a virtual tour of the exhibit located in the Special Collections area of the Harold Washington Public Library in Chicago's Loop. The image galleries are divided into six sections, including politics, famous persons, and ethnic and constituency groups. In the galleries, visitors can look at a number of candid photographs of Washington with local politicians, dignitaries, and famous celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey and Frank Sinatra. The site is rounded out by a short video clip of Harold Washington announcing his candidacy in the 1983 Chicago mayoral race.

First hundred years of research on western Atlantic coral reefs 1850-1950  

SciTech Connect

The history of research on coral reefs of the Western Atlantic is the history of geology for the same period write small. The inter-related, pioneer researchers were led by the Agassizs, Louis and his son Alexander, who explored and described reefs in Florida and the Bahamas. Among their followers were Alfred G. Mayor the founder-director and premier researcher of the Carnegie Laboratory in the Dry Tortugas; C.F. Hartt who first described southernmost reefs off Brazil; Louis Pourtales whose dredging off the Florida coast stimulated interest in organic limestones; and T. Wayland Vaughan whose research ranged from coral biology to the regional geology and history of reefs. The initial 19th century research was sparked by a combination of practical and scientific questions and the what and where of exploration. To build lighthouses on the wreck-strewn Florida reefs one needs to know their foundations. Is the present-day Florida platform a result of reef growth during subsidence a la Darwin or are the reefs merely icing on a limestone cake. In the second phase of research extending from the early 1900's to 1940's, the singular aspects are two dynamic researchers, Alfred Mayor and T. Wayland Vaughan and the Carnegie Institution's Marine Biology Laboratory in the Dry Tortugas. Mayor through his own biological research and his stimulations of other scientists made the Carnegie Laboratory the world center for reef research. Vaughan pioneered connections between reef-building corals, reef deposits and their logical record.

Local decision makers' awareness of the social determinants of health in Turkey: a cross-sectional study  

PubMed Central

Background Social determinants have been described as having a greater influence than other determinants of health status. The major social determinants of health and the necessary policy objectives have been defined; it is now necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of these policies. Previous studies have shown that descriptions of the awareness level of citizens and local decision makers, practice-based research and evidence, and intersectoral studies are the best options for investigating the social determinants of health at the community level. The objective of the present study was to define local decision makers’ awareness of the social determinants of health in the Aydin province of Turkey. Methods A total of 53 mayors serve the Aydin city center, districts and towns. Aydin city center has 22 neighborhoods and 22 headmen responsible for them. The present study targeted all mayors and headmen in Aydin - a total of 75 possible participants. A questionnaire was used to collect the data. The questionnaire was faxed to the mayors and administered face-to-face with the headmen. Results Headmen identified the three most important determinants of public health as environmental issues, addictions (smoking, alcohol) and malnutrition. According to the mayors, the major determinant of public health is stress, followed by malnutrition, environmental issues, an inactive lifestyle, and the social and economic conditions of the country. Both groups expressed that the Turkish Ministry of Health, municipalities and universities are the institutions responsible for developing health policy. Headmen were found to be unaware and mayors were aware of the social determinants of health as classified by the World Health Organisation. Both groups were classified as unaware with regard to their awareness of the Marmot Review policy objectives. Conclusions Studies such as the present study provide important additional information on the social determinants of health, and help to increase the awareness levels of both local decision-makers and the community. Such studies must be considered a vital first step in future public health research on health determinants and their impact on national and international policies.

Engagement in the electoral processes: Scaling laws and the role of political positions.  

PubMed

We report on a statistical analysis of the engagement in the electoral processes of all Brazilian cities by considering the number of party memberships and the number of candidates for mayor and councillor. By investigating the relationships between the number of party members and the population of voters, we have found that the functional forms of these relationships are well described by sublinear power laws (allometric scaling) surrounded by a multiplicative log-normal noise. We have observed that this pattern is quite similar to those we previously reported for the relationships between the number of candidates (mayor and councillor) and population of voters [Europhys. Lett. 96, 48001 (2011)], suggesting that similar universal laws may be ruling the engagement in the electoral processes. We also note that the power-law exponents display a clear hierarchy, where the more influential is the political position the smaller is the value of the exponent. We have also investigated the probability distributions of the number of candidates (mayor and councillor), party memberships, and voters. The results indicate that the most influential positions are characterized by distributions with very short tails, while less influential positions display an intermediate power-law decay before showing an exponential-like cutoff. We discuss the possibility that, in addition to the political power of the position, limitations in the number of available seats can also be connected with this changing of behavior. We further believe that our empirical findings point out to an under-representation effect, where the larger the city is, the larger are the obstacles for more individuals to become directly engaged in the electoral process.

Cogeneration/district heating in Trenton, New Jersey. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The Trenton District Energy Company (TDEC) is a cogenerated district heating system in Trenton, New Jersey which went into service in December 1983. A Trenton Integrated Community Energy System was originally conceived as a means of stimulating the revitalization of the central business district. The central plant uses two diesel engine driven generators and supplementally fired boilers which burn either natural gas or low sulphur oil (No. 2 oil for the engines and No. 6 for the boilers). The thermal distribution is via high pressure hot water (up to 400/sup 0/F, 205/sup 0/C). The district heating system presently serves 56 buildings including the State Capitol Complex. The entire net electric output of the central plant is wholesaled to the local electric utility. A total of nine miles of new insulated piping comprises the district heating distribution system. TDEC is now operating one of the first modern hot water district heating systems in the US. Nine miles of insulated pipeline distribute hot water to heat and cool public and private buildings in Trenton at a total project cost of just over $40 million. The district heating system is the culmination of over five years of planning efforts by the City and a private developer to accomplish what Mayor Arthur Holland enjoys calling his ''pipe dream''. Mayor Holland has long been an advocate for the development of such systems and has represented the US Conference of Mayors' support of district heating through his testimony before the House Science and Technology Subcommittee on Energy Development and Applications.

Phase transfer-catalyzed synthesis of highly acrylated hyaluronan.  

PubMed

Glycosaminoglycans and its derivatives have gained increasing attention for the fabrication of hydrogels usable in biomedicine. Starting from high molecular weight hyaluronan, a natural glycosaminoglycan that forms a mayor component of the native extracellular matrix, we present an efficient phase-transfer-based synthesis for low molecular weight hyaluronan acrylates with a tailored degree of substitution (DS) ranging up to DS values of 1.7. The ability of these compounds to form dimensionally stable hydrogels was proven using different photo-initiator systems. PMID:23499080

Radial velocities of evolved stars. III. (De Medeiros+, 2004)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Rotational velocity measurements are presented for a sample of 78 double-lined binary systems with an evolved component. This work is the third part of the large survey carried out with the CORAVEL spectrometer to establish the behavior the rotation for stars evolving off the main sequence (De Medeiros & Mayor, 1999, Cat. ; De Medeiros et al. 2002, Cat. ). Some of the stars show an orbital motion which require some further analysis; the corresponding results will be included in a forthcoming paper. The stars concerned are HD 5303, 82543, 169268, 172088 and 250810. (4 data files).

RV and vsini of Ib supergiant stars (de Medeiros+, 2002)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The observations are from De Medeiros & Mayor, 1999, Cat. . The large majority of the observations were carried out from March 1986 to May 1994, except for those stars having a larger time base. All stars north of declination -25° were observed with the CORAVEL mounted on the Swiss 1-meter telescope at the Haute-Provence Observatory, Saint-Michel (France). The stars south of declination -25° have been measured with the southern CORAVEL at the Cassegrain focus of the 1.5m Danish telescope at ESO La Silla (Chile). (1 data file).

Current through single conjugated molecules: Calculations versus measurements  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use density functional theory based nonequilibrium Green's function to calculate the current through the different rodlike molecules at the finite temperatures self-consistently, which was compared to the experimental measurements presented by Reichert et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 176804 (2002)] and by Mayor et al. [Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 42, 5834 (2003)], respectively. Our results agree with the measurements very well, especially for the bias around +/-1.0 V. The investigation of the topological effect for the symmetrical molecule reveals the fact that the para position compound provides a considerably larger conductance than the meta one.

Feature Selection Based on Information Theory for Speaker Verification  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Feature extraction/selection is an important stage in every speaker recognition system. Dimension reduction plays a mayor roll due to not only the curse of dimensionality or computation time, but also because of the discriminative relevancy of each feature. The use of automatic methods able to reduce the dimension of the feature space without losing performance is one important problem nowadays. In this sense, a method based on mutual information is studied in order to keep as much discriminative information as possible and the less amount of redundant information. The system performance as a function of the number of retained features is studied.

Understanding differences in access and use of healthcare between international immigrants to Chile and the Chilean-born: a repeated cross-sectional population-based study in Chile  

PubMed Central

Introduction International evidence indicates consistently lower rates of access and use of healthcare by international immigrants. Factors associated with this phenomenon vary significantly depending on the context. Some research into the health of immigrants has been conducted in Latin America, mostly from a qualitative perspective. This population-based study is the first quantitative study to explore healthcare provision entitlement and use of healthcare services by immigrants in Chile and compare them to the Chilean-born. Methods Data come from the nationally representative CASEN (Socioeconomic characterization of the population in Chile) surveys, conducted in 2006 and 2009. Self-reported immigrants were compared to the Chilean-born, by demographic characteristics (age, sex, urban/rural, household composition, ethnicity), socioeconomic status (SES: education, household income, contractual status), healthcare provision entitlement (public, private, other, none), and use of primary services. Weighted descriptive, stratified and adjusted regression models were used to analyse factors associated with access to and use of healthcare. Results There was an increase in self-reported immigrant status and in household income inequality among immigrants between 2006 and 2009. Over time there was a decrease in the rate of immigrants reporting no healthcare provision and an increase in reporting of private healthcare provision entitlement. Compared to the Chilean-born, immigrants reported higher rates of use of antenatal and gynaecological care, lower use of well-baby care, and no difference in the use of Pap smears or the number of attentions received in the last three months. Immigrants in the bottom income quintile were four times more likely to report no healthcare provision than their equivalent Chilean-born group (with different health needs, i.e. vertical inequity). Disabled immigrants were more likely to have no healthcare provision compared to the disabled Chilean-born (with similar health needs, i.e. horizontal inequity). Factors associated with immigrants’ access to, and use of, healthcare were sex, urban/rural status, education and country of origin. Conclusion There were significant associations between SES, and access to and use of healthcare among immigrants in Chile and a higher prevalence of no health care provision entitlement among poor and disabled immigrants compared to the Chilean-born. Changing associations between access and use of healthcare and SES among immigrants in Chile over time may reflect changes in their socio-demographic composition or in the survey methodology between 2006 and 2009. Resumen Introducción La evidencia internacional indica menor acceso y uso de servicios de salud por parte de inmigrantes, pero sus factores desencadenantes varían significativamente dependiendo del contexto. Algunas investigaciones se han desarrollado en este tema en América Latina, desde una perspectiva cualitativa. Este estudio cuantitativo exploró el auto-reporte de acceso y uso de servicios de salud de inmigrantes en Chile y los comparó con la población chilena. Métodos Análisis secundario de datos de encuesta nacional CASEN 2006 y 2009. Inmigrantes fueron comparados con chilenos en características demográficas (edad, sexo, urbano/rural, composición del hogar, etnia), estatus socioeconómico (educación, ingreso, situación contractual), tipo de previsión (pública, privada, otra, ninguna), y uso de varios servicios de atención primaria. Análisis descriptivo, estratificado, y modelos de regresión ponderados para entender factores asociados al acceso y uso de servicios de salud en STATA 11.0. Resultados Se observó un aumento de reporte de inmigrantes y de la desigualdad en el ingreso de inmigrantes entre 2006 y 2009. Hubo una disminución en la tasa de inmigrantes sin previsión y un aumento en el acceso al sistema privado. Los inmigrantes usaron más frecuentemente la atención prenatal y ginec

Open-field host specificity test of Gratiana boliviana (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae), a biological control agent of tropical soda apple (Solanaceae) in the United States  

SciTech Connect

An open-field experiment was conducted to assess the suitability of the South American leaf feeding beetle Gratiana boliviana Spaeth for biological control of Solanum viarum Dunal in the USA. An open-field test with eggplant, Solanum melongena L., was conducted on the campus of the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and a S. viarum control plot was established 40 km from the campus. One hundred adult beetles were released in each plot at the beginning of the experiment during the vegetative stage of the plants, and forty additional beetles were released in the S. melongena plot at the flowering stage. All the plants in each plot were checked twice a week and the number of adults, immatures, and eggs recorded. Results showed almost a complete rejection of eggplant by G. boliviana. No noticeable feeding damage was ever recorded on eggplant. The experiment was ended when the eggplants started to senesce or were severely damaged by whiteflies and spider mites. The results of this open-field experiment corroborate previous quarantine/laboratory host-specificity tests indicating that a host range expansion of G. boliviana to include eggplant is highly unlikely. Gratiana boliviana was approved for field release in May 2003 in the USA. To date, no non-target effects have been observed either on eggplant or native species of Solanum. (author) [Spanish] Una prueba de campo fue conducida para evaluar la especificidad del escarabajo suramericano defoliador Gratiana boliviana Spaeth para control biologico de Solanum viarum Dunal en los Estados Unidos. La prueba con berenjena se realizo en el campo experimental de la Universidad de Buenos Aires, Argentina, y una parcela control con S. viarum fue establecida a 40 km. Cien escarabajos adultos fueron liberados en cada parcela al inicio del experimento durante la fase vegetativa, y cuarenta escarabajos adicionales fueron liberados en la parcela de berenjena durante la floracion. Todas las plantas en cada parcela fueron inspeccionadas dos veces a la semana y el numero de adultos, larvas, y posturas fueron registrados. Resultados indicaron un casi completo rechazo de la berenjena por G. boliviana. Ningun dano visible de defoliacion en la berenjena fue detectado. Las pruebas concluyeron cuando las plantas de berenjena alcazaron su madurez o fueron severamente danadas por mosca blanca y acaros. Resultados corroboran previas pruebas de especificidad en laboratorio/cuarentena que indican que la berenjena no es un hospedero de G. boliviana y que la posibilidad de llegar a ser una plaga de este cultivo es muy remota. Gratiana boliviana fue aprobado para ser liberado en el campo en mayo del 2003. Ningun dano ha sido observado hasta la fecha a plantas no blanco. (author)

Earthquake source parameters from GPS-measured static displacements with potential for real-time application  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We describe a method for determining an optimal centroid-moment tensor solution of an earthquake from a set of static displacements measured using a network of Global Positioning System receivers. Using static displacements observed after the 4 April 2010, MW 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah, Mexico, earthquake, we perform an iterative inversion to obtain the source mechanism and location, which minimize the least-squares difference between data and synthetics. The efficiency of our algorithm for forward modeling static displacements in a layered elastic medium allows the inversion to be performed in real-time on a single processor without the need for precomputed libraries of excitation kernels; we present simulated real-time results for the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. The only a priori information that our inversion scheme needs is a crustal model and approximate source location, so the method proposed here may represent an improvement on existing early warning approaches that rely on foreknowledge of fault locations and geometries.

Matter wave interferometry as a tool for molecule metrology  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Kapitza-Dirac-Talbot-Lau interferometry (KDTLI) has recently been established as an ideal method to perform quantum matter wave experiments with large, highly polarizable molecules in an unprecedented mass range of beyond 1000 atomic mass units [1]. Since the interference visibility reveals important information on the properties of the examined particles, such as their mass and polarizability, we identified KDTLI as a valuable tool for precision metrology. We demonstrate that quantum interferometry can therefore also serve as a powerful complement to mass spectrometry [2], in particular in cases where fragmentation may occur in the detector. Our new method is applicable to a wide range of molecules and is particularly valuable for characterizing neutral molecular beams. [1] S. Gerlich, L. Hackerm"uller, K. Hornberger, A. Stibor, H.

Moral Combat in An Enemy of the People: Public Health versus Private Interests  

PubMed Central

Dr Thomas Stockmann, the protagonist of Ibsen's play, An Enemy of the People, discovers a serious health threat in the Baths of his Norwegian town. The Baths have been marketed as a health resort to lure visitors. Dr Stockmann alerts officials about the problem and assumes that they will close the Baths until it is corrected. He is met with fierce resistance, however. His brother, the town's mayor, favors keeping the Baths open and correcting the problem gradually. He advances multiple arguments that appeal to the economic interests of the town and Thomas's role-related obligation as a citizen. His wife, Katherine, wants him to cooperate with the mayor. She marshals several arguments that appeal to his obligations as a father. This paper reconstructs and examines the competing arguments, shows how Ibsen's play has both contemporary relevance and moral depth, and demonstrates how Dr Stockmann's responses can be interpreted as an argument that complying with his duties to protect the public health do not force him to renege on his core commitments as a parent and as a citizen.

Bloomberg's Health Legacy: Urban Innovator or Meddling Nanny?  

PubMed

Michael Bloomberg assumed office as the 108th mayor of New York City on January 1, 2002. As he leaves the mayoralty-having won re-election twice-his public health legacy is bitterly contested. The public health community views him as an urban innovator-a rare political and business leader willing to fight for a built environment conducive to healthier, safer lifestyles. To his detractors, Bloomberg epitomizes a meddling nanny-an elitist dictating to largely poor and working-class people about how they ought to lead their lives. His policies have sparked intense public, corporate, and political ire-critical of sweeping mayoral power to socially engineer the city and its inhabitants. Here, I seek to show how Bloomberg has fundamentally changed public health policy and discourse. He has used the engine of government to make New York City a laboratory for innovation-raising the visibility of public health, testing policy effectiveness, and probing the boundaries of state power. Even though the courts have blocked some of his boldest initiatives, he has offered a paradigm for the "new public health"-reaching beyond infectious diseases to upstream risk factors in everyday life and the human habitat. I also critically probe various arguments designed to derail his policies, along with the overarching charge of unjustified paternalism. PMID:24092587

Geographical dimensions and correlates of trust  

SciTech Connect

A sample of 323 residents of New Jersey stratified by neighborhood quality (excellent, good, fair, poor) was gathered to determine if trust in science and technology to protect public health and environment at the societal scale was associated with trust of the local officials, such as the mayor, health officer, developers, mass media, and legislators who are guardians of the local environment. Societal (trust of science and technology) and neighborhood (mayor, health officer) dimensions of trust were found. These societal and neighborhood trust dimensions were weakly correlated. Respondents were divided into fur trust-of-authority groups: high societal-high neighborhood, low societal-low neighborhood, high societal-low neighborhood, and low societal-high neighborhood. High societal-high neighborhood trust respondents were older, had lived in the neighborhoods for many years, were not troubled much by neighborhood or societal environmental threats, and had a strong sense of control over their environment. In strong contrast, low societal-low neighborhood trust respondents were relatively young, typically had lived in their present neighborhood for a short time, were troubled by numerous neighborhood and societal environmental threats, did not practice many personal public health practices, and felt little control over their environment.

Chilean Teachers Begin Exchange Program Visit in Magdalena  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Two teachers from the town of San Pedro de Atacama, in the northern desert of the South American nation of Chile, arrive in Magdalena, New Mexico, Sunday, January 28, for a two-week visit that is part of a Sister Cities program sponsored by Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI), the nonprofit research corporation that operates the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO). They will be accompanied by their town's mayor. Myriam Nancy Rivera Mercado, Head of the high school in San Pedro, Gabriela Fernanda Rodriguez Moraleda, a tourism teacher there, and San Pedro Mayor Sandra Berna Martinez will begin a visit that includes classroom observations in the Magdalena schools, a reception hosted by the Magdalena Village Council, and a Mayor's Breakfast with Magdalena Mayor Jim Wolfe. They also will meet local residents, tour the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge with a second-grade class, visit an area ranch, tour the Very Large Array (VLA) radio telescope, and see Socorro's Community Arts Party. "These teachers will learn much about New Mexico, the United States, and our educational system, and will take this new knowledge back to their students and their community," said NRAO Education Officer Robyn Harrison. The visit is part of a Sister Cities program initiated and funded by AUI, which operates the NRAO for the U.S. National Science Foundation. Radio astronomy is a common link between San Pedro de Atacama and Magdalena. San Pedro is near the site of the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), an international telescope project now under construction with funding by major partners in North America, Europe, and Japan. Magdalena is near the site of NRAO's VLA radio telescope. In Magdalena, the Village Council and Mayor Wolfe formalized their participation in the Sister Cities program last September, and San Pedro ratified the program in December. In San Pedro, the ceremony ratifying the agreement was attended by U.S. Ambassador to Chile Craig K. Kelly. The Chilean teachers are visiting Magdalena while they are on their Southern Hemisphere summer vacation, and Magdalena's schools are in session. Two Magdalena teachers, Joleen Welborn and Sandra Montoya, will visit San Pedro in June, while they are on summer vacation and the Chilean schools will be in session. Dr. Eduardo Hardy, the AUI/NRAO representative in Chile, will accompany the Chilean teachers on their visit, which has been coordinated by Harrison. "ALMA is a groundbreaking example of the type of international cooperation that marks the future of astronomy. We are especially pleased to sponsor a program that brings together two communities that both enjoy proximity to world-class astronomical research facilities," said Dr. Fred K.Y. Lo, NRAO Director. "While separated by many miles, San Pedro de Atacama and Magdalena have much in common. Both are small communities in high desert environments, and both are next to telescopes where the world's astronomers will be making many exciting discoveries in the coming decades. Bringing these two communities together will advance education and international understanding," Harrison said. The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is a facility of the National Science Foundation, operated under cooperative agreement by Associated Universities, Inc.

ERK1/2 phosphorylation is an independent predictor of complete remission in newly diagnosed adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia.  

PubMed

Extracellular signal-regulated kinase-1/2 (ERK1/2) is frequently found constitutively activated (p-ERK1/2) in hematopoietic diseases, suggesting a role in leukemogenesis. The aim of this study was to assess the expression and clinical role of p-ERK1/2 in adult acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). In 131 primary samples from adult de novo ALL patients enrolled in the Gruppo Italiano per le Malattie Ematologiche dell'Adulto (GIMEMA) Leucemia Acute Linfoide (LAL) 2000 protocol and evaluated by flow cytometry, constitutive ERK1/2 activation was found in 34.5% of cases; these results were significantly associated with higher white blood cell (WBC) values (P=.013). In a multivariate analysis, p-ERK1/2 expression was an independent predictor of complete remission achievement (P=.027). Effective approaches toward MEK inhibition need to be explored in order to evaluate whether this may represent a new therapeutic strategy for adult ALL patients. PMID:17351113

Frontline imatinib treatment of chronic myeloid leukemia: no impact of age on outcome, a survey by the GIMEMA CML Working Party.  

PubMed

The median age of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients is ~60 years, and age is still considered an important prognostic factor, included in Sokal and EURO risk scores. However, few data are available about the long-term outcome of older patients treated with imatinib (IM) frontline. We analyzed the relationship between age and outcome in 559 early chronic-phase CML patients enrolled in 3 prospective clinical trials of Gruppo Italiano Malattie Ematologiche dell'Adulto CML Working Party, treated frontline with IM, with a median follow-up of 60 months. There were 115 older patients (? 65 years; 21%). The complete cytogenetic and major molecular response rates were similar in the 2 age groups. In older patients, event-free survival (55% vs 67%), failure-free survival (78% vs 92%), progression-free survival (62% vs 78%), and overall survival (75% vs 89%) were significantly inferior (all P < .01) because of a higher proportion of deaths that occurred in complete hematologic response, therefore unrelated to CML progression (15% vs 3%, P < .0001). The outcome was similar once those deaths were censored. These data show that response to IM was not affected by age and that the mortality rate linked to CML is similar in both age groups. This trial was registered at www.clinicaltrials.gov as #NCT00514488 and #NCT00510926. PMID:21450900

Additional chromosomal abnormalities in Philadelphia-positive clone: adverse prognostic influence on frontline imatinib therapy: a GIMEMA Working Party on CML analysis.  

PubMed

Additional chromosomal abnormalities (ACAs) in Philadelphia-positive cells have been reported in ? 5% of patients with newly diagnosed chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in chronic phase (CP). Few studies addressing the prognostic significance of baseline ACAs in patients treated with imatinib have been published previously. The European LeukemiaNet recommendations suggest that the presence of ACAs at diagnosis is a "warning" for patients in early CP, but there is not much information about their outcome after therapy with tyrosine kinase inhibitors. To investigate the role of ACAs in early CP CML patients treated with imatinib mesylate, we performed an analysis in a large series of 559 patients enrolled in 3 prospective trials of the Gruppo Italiano Malattie Ematologiche dell'Adulto Working Party on CML: 378 patients were evaluable and ACAs occurred in 21 patients (5.6%). The overall cytogenetic and molecular response rates were significantly lower and the time to response was significantly longer in patients with ACAs. The long-term outcome of patients with ACAs was inferior, but the differences were not significant. The prognostic significance of each specific cytogenetic abnormality was not assessable. Therefore, we confirm that ACAs constitute an adverse prognostic factor in CML patients treated with imatinib as frontline therapy. PMID:22692507

The "Second City" May See a Return to Legalized Gambling  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

During the 1990s, many states saw riverboat gambling as a way to create new revenue streams to support public schools and other programs. Few large American cities have been able to place land-based casinos in their cities proper, but under the direction of Mayor Richard M. Daley, Chicago seems poised to do just that. Understandably, numerous groups and city officials, including several aldermen, have already voiced their reservations about the plan. Mayor Daley responded this past Wednesday by stating that, "Those who don't want it, don't have to take the money. Morally, if they object to it, they can stand up and say, 'We don't want this money. I don't want the school. I don't want the park.' And they won't get it, then." With the state of Illinois facing a $5 billion dollar budget shortfall, Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich noted that Chicago might be a "very compelling place" for a casino. Others remain skeptical, including Anita Bedell, the executive director of Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems, who commented that, "The casino owners, the racetrack owners -- these are the ones who will be the winner, and the losers will be the taxpayers of Illinois."The first link leads to a recent news article from the Chicago Sun-Times dealing with the efforts of Mayor Daley to corral support for a government-owned, land-based casino in Chicago. The second link will take visitors to a Chicago Tribune article that talks about the recent approval of a plan to expand gambling around the state by the Illinois House of Representatives gambling committee. The third link leads to a staff editorial from the Sun-Times on the question of whether or not a casino should be located in Chicago. The fourth link leads to the homepage of the Illinois State Gaming Board, which contains information about legalized gambling in the state and its recent history. The fifth link is a weekly research bulletin on pathological gambling published by the Division on Addictions at Harvard Medical School. The sixth link is to the National Center for Responsible Gaming, which performs various studies on pathological gambling, and contains information about their upcoming events, programs, and workshops. The final link is to a 2000 policy brief written by Professor Earl Grinols of the University of Illinois that contends that casino gambling causes significant increases in crimes. [KMG

Rapid Assessment and Mitigation of Cascadia Earthquakes Using the Combined PANGA and PBO Real-time GPS Networks  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Nearly 400 GPS receivers of the combined PANGA and PBO networks currently operate along the Cascadia subduction zone, all of which are high-rate and either currently or soon to be telemetered in real-time. These receivers span the M9 megathrust, M7 crustal faults beneath population centers, several active Cascades volcanoes, and a host of other hazard sources. Together these receivers enable a host of new approaches towards hazards mitigation. Data from the majority of the stations are received in real time at CWU and processed into one-second position estimates using: 1) relative positioning within several reference frames 2) absolute point positioning using streamed satellite orbit and clock corrections. While the former produces lower-noise time series, for earthquakes greater than ~M7 and ground displacements exceeding ~20 cm, point positioning provides rapid and robust estimates of the location and amplitude of both dynamic strong ground motion and permanent deformation. Estimated position streams are fed into routines that derive products relevant to rapid hazards response and mitigation: sidereal position differences and triggering detectors; “ShakeMap” and “ShiftMap” of maximum dynamic and permanent ground displacement, respectively; source magnitude and distribution of fault slip on known faults (entire megathrust; Seattle, Whidbey Island, Bainbridge, and Portland West Hills); earthquake magnitude derived from an empirical relationship between the shaking and deformation amplitude and affected regional area size; and formal surface-wave inversion estimation. For the megathrust slip estimation, we also predict sea-floor uplift along the near-coastal Cascadia region. Finally, a set of Java routines have been developed to allow any individual or agency to stream any or all of these data products onto local computers for customized analyses and triggers. The 2010 Chile and Sierra El Mayor earthquakes provided an opportunity to retroactively test some of these routines. We compare amplitudes of dynamic horizontal displacements exceeding 30 cm between accelerometer and GPS-derived time series for the Sierra El Mayor mainshock. We selected 4 collocated seismic and GPS stations along a line centered at the epicenter of the Sierra El Mayor mainshock and found a high level of agreement between the amplitude, phase polarity and arrival times of surface waves as recorded by GPS and traditional strong ground sensors. Transient deformation is picked using an ordered wavelet transform, and seismic moments correct to Mw=+- 0.2 are inferred within ~1 minute of the first arriving anomalous deformation.

Quartz Resorption as a Geospeedometer in Peralkaline Rhyolites  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Magma ascent rate affects eruptive style and intensity as it determines time available for syn-eruptive crystallization, vesiculation and permeable gas loss. The width of hornblende reaction rims has previously been used to estimate ascent rates for eruptions of andesitic volcanoes. Reactions between quartz and the coexisting melt could provide a similar proxy for peralkaline silicic magmas. Mayor Island, a peralkaline rhyolitic volcano in New Zealand, was used as a case study to investigate the use of quartz resorption as a geospeedometer. During the last 130 ka, Mayor Island has exhibited a wide range of eruptions, both with regards to intensity and volume. Previous studies have determined the pre-eruptive temperature to be around 750°C and pressure to be 100-125 MPa, and proposed that the magma chamber is saturated in water (Barclay et al., 1996). Neither the composition of the magma (72-74 wt% SiO2) nor the water content (4.4 wt%) have changed significantly between the different styles of eruptions, and the wide range of eruptive style was therefore attributed to variations in the ascent rate. In general, the quartz phenocrysts from the effusive eruptions are rounded, whereas those from the explosive eruptions are euhedral. Scaillet and Macdonald (2001) established that there are realistic conditions for which quartz in peralkaline rhyolites goes from stable to unstable to stable again during decompression. In this study, the stability fields of quartz were determined for a Mayor Island magma composition using an externally heated cold-seal pressure vessel. The rate of quartz resorption was assessed by carrying out time-series experiments. The pre-eruptive conditions were determined to be about 700-750°C from feldspar thermometry and phase equilibria. The results indicate that the magma was water under-saturated and consequently stored at higher pressures than previously calculated. The time-series experiments imply that magma that erupt explosively did not spend more than a couple of days at pressure between 150 and 50 MPa. REFERENCES Barclay, J., Carroll, M. R., Houghton, B.

Final Report of the Independent Counsel In Re: Alphonso Michael (Mike) Espy  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Former Secretary of Agriculture Alphonso Michael Espy was investigated for allegations originating in 1994 of possible violation of federal criminal law by accepting gifts from organizations or individuals with business pending before the US Department of Agriculture. In a final report released October 25, 2001 and now available online, investigators from the Office of Independent Council Donald Smalz state their conclusions that Secretary Espy had indeed committed improper behavior and that, "among other offenses, companies with financially important matters pending before USDA gave Secretary Espy -- either directly or via members of his family or his girlfriend -- numerous gifts in an effort to garner his favor." Tyson Foods, Inc., Crop Growers Corp., and Sun-Diamond Growers of California are among the six corporate entities convicted. The full report contains five large chapters, a conclusion, chronology, three appendices, and comment letters, including one from the attorneys of brother Henry Espy, Mayor of Clarksdale Mississippi.

Statistical panorama of female physics graduate students for 2000-2010 in Peru  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We report the results of a statistical study on the number of women entering the undergraduate and master's programs of physics at Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in Peru. From 2006 through 2010, 13 female students entered the master's degree program but no females graduated with the degree. Considering that Peru is a developing country, a career in physics is not considered an attractive professional choice even for male students because it is thought that there are no work centers to practice this profession. We recommend that the causes preventing female physics students from completing their studies and research work be analyzed, and that strategies be planned to help women complete their academic work. We are considering getting help from the Peruvian Physics Society (SOPERFI) in order to draw more attention for our plan.

Oury Family Papers  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Oury Family was an Arizona pioneer family, prominent in territorial political and military affairs. Their number included William S. Oury, who served as the first mayor of Tucson in 1864. He later purchased the "Arizonian" newspaper in Tubac and moved it to Tucson. Other family members contributed to the spirit and culture of the Arizona territory during the late 19th century as well. This site provides interested parties with access to their family papers, which are part of the University of Arizona Libraries Special Collections. First-time visitors should check out the Finding Aid area, as it will help them get acclimated to the breadth of the materials. The documents include family correspondence, diaries, photographs, deeds, articles, and speeches related to the Ourys' involvement in Arizona territorial military experience. It's quite a collection and one that anyone with an interest in American history will find most edifying.

Hugo A. Owens: dentist, civil rights leader, politician.  

PubMed

For 44 years Dr. Hugo A. Owens was a distinguished practitioner and community leader in Portsmouth, Virginia. Besides his affinity to for dentistry, he was driven by two other passions: politics and civil rights. In 1970 he was one of the first African-Americans elected to the Portsmouth City Council. He was reelected for the next term and appointed Vice Mayor, a position he held for eight years. His political successes were preceded by his activities as a civil rights leader, which began in 1950 and lasted through the 1960s. In a remarkable series of negotiations and litigations, Dr. Owens was the prime mover in the desegregation of the City of Portsmouth. In all three 'careers, Dr. Owens used dentistry as a home base for the expression of his activist philosophy of providing help for others when they were unable to do things for themselves.

Coseismic Offsets on PBO Borehole Strainmeters: Real, or Spurious?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have observed coseismic strain offsets during many significant earthquakes, at all locations in the 74-instrument PBO borehole strainmeter (BSM) network. The M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake of April 4, 2010 induced the largest offsets thus far, on BSMs located within the San Jacinto fault zone - the "Anza cluster". Here we present analyses of trends in the observed offsets for the Anza cluster, as well as inspection of their inferred borehole lithology. We find that offsets rarely agree with elastic dislocation theory in magnitude and sign, and speculate that they are controlled more by localized geologic constraints than by triggered fault slip, as has been suggested in previous studies (e.g. Linde and Johnson, 1989).

Orbital migration models under test  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Planet-disk interaction predicts a change in the orbital elements of an embedded planet. Through linear and fully hydrodynamical studies it has been found that migration is typically directed inwards. Hence, this migration process gives natural explanation for the presence of the 'hot' planets orbiting close to the parent star, and it plays a mayor role in explaining the formation of resonant planetary systems. However, standard migration models for locally isothermal disks indicate a too rapid inward migration for small mass planets, and a large number of massive planets are found very far away from the star. Recent studies, including more complete disk physics, have opened up new paths to slow down or even reverse migration. The new findings on migration are discussed and connected to the observational properties of planetary systems.

Sweet smell of profits from trash  

SciTech Connect

Burning a county's or municipality's refuse and turning is into electricity should take off as a major growth industry, and capital investment in such plants over the next 10 years could reach $20 billion. Charles River Associates predicts that by 1995 some 75 incinerators will be in operation, taking in annual revenues of $4 billion. Unlike the ill-starred attempts to turn profits into trash in the 1970s, the new plants will use a proven technique called mass burning. While there is some concern about dioxin emissions, these plants emit negligible pollution when properly run. Since Americans throw away 170 million tons of household garbage annually - and since the country is fast running out of landfill sites - the refuse problem is especially acute in heavily populated areas. The biggest prizes, of course, for the refuse-to-energy companies will be the big cities; Mayor Koch wants five for New York City, one for each borough.

Hazardous waste management at the local level; The Anchorage, Alaska experience  

SciTech Connect

The need to manage hazardous wastes in the municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, has become increasingly evident in recent years. A task force, representing a broad cross-section of the community, was appointed by the mayor to develop a waste management plan that would address community concerns. Between 1984 and 1986, the Anchorage Hazardous Waste Task Force, supported by municipal staff, local consultants and volunteers from the community developed a plan emphasizing local responsibility and pollution prevention, using management capabilities and technical assistance. This paper describes the development of a non-regulatory hazardous waste management program in Anchorage, Alaska. Plan elements, program funding and the key role of the local Hazardous Waste Task Force are discussed.
