RELACIÓN MÉDICO PACIENTE: DERECHOS DEL ADULTO MAYOR  

PubMed Central

Existen prejuicios en relación con la vejez, incluso entre los profesionales que se dedican a la gerontología. Uno común y peligroso es considerar que los viejos son todos enfermos o discapacitados. La relación médico-paciente es la piedra angular de la práctica y ética médicas. Para alcanzar el respeto por los adultos mayores es necesaria una medicina prudente, basada en una práctica en la cual la reflexión ética y clínica pueda contribuir. Esto último es posible si se hacen valer los derechos del adulto mayor, en particular como paciente para la toma de decisiones. PMID:20379380

Factores socio-económicos asociados a la percepción de situación socioeconómica entre adultos mayores de dos países latinoamericanos  

PubMed Central

El objetivo principal del artículo es estudiar la asociación entre la percepción subjetiva sobre la situación económica propia y una serie de medidas objetivas de bienestar socioeconómico –fuentes de ingresos, tenencia de vivienda, nivel educativo y transferencias familiares informales de dinero- entre adultos mayores de dos países Latinoamericanos: México y Costa Rica. Los datos se obtienen de las primeras rondas de dos encuestas sobre envejecimiento: CRELES para Costa Rica y ENASEM para México. La variable dependiente más importante se obtiene de las respuestas a las pregunta “¿Cómo califica su situación económica actual?” en Costa Rica y “¿Diría usted que su situación económica es…?” en México. Para ambas encuestas, las respuestas se codificaron en forma binaria; el código 0 representa las categorías Excelente, Muy buena y Buena, y el código 1 representa a las categorías Regular y Mala. Se encontró que el ingreso por jubilación es un importante determinante de la percepción de bienestar en ambos países. En Costa Rica, el ingreso del cónyuge y la tenencia de vivienda son importantes predictores de la percepción de bienestar, mientras que en México, los ingresos por transferencias están fuertemente asociados con dicha percepción.

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

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.

Mud volcano response to the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Mud volcanoes sometimes respond to earthquakes, but the mechanisms by which earthquakes trigger changes in ongoing eruptions or initiate new eruptions are not completely understood. We measured gas discharge at a field of mud volcanoes near the Salton Sea, southern California, before and after the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake and observed an increase in gas flux immediately following the earthquake and a subsequent recovery to pre-earthquake values. This earthquake-eruption pair is of particular interest because the earthquake produced large strains, up to 1.2%, near the mud volcano location, allowing us to test two competing triggering mechanisms: (1) shaking-induced bubble mobilization and (2) permeability enhancement. We measured the rheology of erupted mud from the mud volcanoes to quantify the importance of mechanism 1 and found that this mechanism is unlikely to be important. We therefore favor the explanation that the increased gas flux was caused by a transient increase in permeability.

Did stresses from the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field influence the El Mayor-Cucapah rupture sequence?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah (EMC) earthquake ruptured a complex fault system in northern Baja California that was previously considered inactive. The Cerro Prieto Geothermal Field (CPGF), site of the world's second largest geothermal power plant, is located approximately 15 km to the northeast of the EMC hypocenter. We investigate whether anthropogenic fluid extraction at the CPGF caused a significant perturbation to the stress field in the EMC rupture zone. We use Advanced Land Observing Satellite interferometric synthetic aperture radar data to develop a laterally heterogeneous model of fluid extraction at the CPGF and estimate that this extraction generates positive Coulomb stressing rates of order 15 kPa/yr near the EMC hypocenter, a value which exceeds the local tectonic stressing rate. Although we cannot definitively conclude that production at the CPGF triggered the EMC earthquake, its influence on the local stress field is substantial and should not be neglected in local seismic hazard assessments.

Near field 3D displacement of El Mayor-Cupapah Earthquake: A hybrid approach. (Invited)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The surface rupture produced on April 4th of 2010 by the M 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake is an ideal target to be analyzed by remote sensing techniques. It produced over 100 km of scarps, with vertical and horizontal slip on the order of 2 to 3 m in scarcely vegetated, rugged terrain underlain by mostly igneous rocks. A 3D displacement field (DF) was calculated by matching pre- to post-event airborne LiDAR point clouds through the Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm, which first segments the point clouds into discrete windows, and for each, iteratively converges on a rigid body transformation comprising a translation and a rotation that best aligns the pre- to post-event point clouds. After testing different window sizes, we used a square window 100m a side. The El Mayor-Cucapah LiDAR data sets present special challenges for the ICP technique. The point clouds differ considerably in point density, by ~1:700. This, and the lower precision of the pre-earthquake data, limit the accuracy of the DF results. Despite these issues, the vertical and East-West (E-W) components of the DF from ICP very clearly delineate the trace of the surface rupture, showing east-side down dextral-normal motion in agreement with field measurements and the focal mechanism reported for this event. A systematic error in the LiDAR instrument used for the pre-event survey caused severe distortion of the North-South (N-S) component of the LiDAR returns. After reprocessing the source pre-event point cloud in various ways to correct for the systematic error, a more plausible pattern for the N-S component was obtained for the DF. To have another perspective for the horizontal DF, a subpixel correlation analysis of optical satellite images (SPOT 2.5 m panchromatic images) before and after the earthquake, was performed using the COSI-Corr software. We combined the N-S component from this analysis with the E-W and vertical components of the ICP results, and present the analysis of the resulting DF. We also compare the results from ICP and COSI-Corr individually for each of the horizontal components. Both methods delineate very clearly the rupture, and agree in direction with small discrepancies in magnitude for the horizontal DF. Results from far field deformation measurements obtained from different remote sensing techniques, such as GPS and InSAR, could be fused with the near-field LiDAR and COSI-Corr results to provide a synoptic view of the strain induced by earthquakes such as the El Mayor-Cucapah event.

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.

A dated pollen record of vegetation change on Mayor Island (Tuhua) throughout the last 3000 years  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pollen data are presented from Mayor Island, Bay of Plenty. The island was important in prehistory as a source of obsidian (Seelenfreund, A., Bollong, C., 1989. The sourcing of New Zealand obsidian artefacts using energy dispersive XRF Spectroscopy. In: D. Sutton (Editor), Saying So Doesn't Make It So: Papers in honour of B. Foss Leach. New Zealand Archaeological Association Monograph, Wellington, pp. 168-189.) and holds a strategic location relative to the settlement of the North Island of New Zealand since it lies on possible arrival routes from Polynesia, and also relative to travel up and down the east coast of the North Island. The pollen data show that the island was generally forested between c. 3000 and c. 450 BP, when forest declined and the bracken fern Pteridium esculentum (and charcoal) increased. Before significant forest decline at 450 BP, which is consistent with Maori occupation at the time of the fortified settlements known as pa, there is evidence of other episodes of vegetation disturbance dating back to c. 2200 BP which may represent earlier visits by people.

Coseismic slip variation assessed from terrestrial lidar scans of the El Mayor-Cucapah surface rupture  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We analyze high-resolution (>103 points/m2) terrestrial lidar surveys of the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake rupture (Baja California, Mexico), collected at three sites 12-18 days after the event. Using point cloud-based tools in an immersive visualization environment, we quantify coseismic fault slip for hundreds of meters along strike and construct densely constrained along-strike slip distributions from measurements of offset landforms. Uncertainty bounds for each offset, determined empirically by repeatedly measuring offsets at each site sequentially, illuminate measurement uncertainties that are difficult to quantify in the field. These uncertainties are used to define length scales over which variability in slip distributions may be assumed to reflect either recognizable earthquake mechanisms or measurement noise. At two sites characterized by 2-3 m of concentrated right-oblique slip, repeat measurements yield 2? uncertainties of ±11-12%. Each site encompasses ?200 m along strike, and a smoothed linear slip gradient satisfies all measurement distributions, implying along-fault strains of ?10-3. Conversely, the common practice of defining the slip curve by the local slip maxima distorts the curve, overestimates along-fault strain, and may overestimate actual fault slip by favoring measurements with large, positive, uncertainties. At a third site characterized by 1-2.5 m of diffuse normal slip, repeat measurements of fault throw summed along fault-perpendicular profiles yield 2? uncertainties of ±17%. Here, a low order polynomial fit through the measurement averages best approximates surface slip. However independent measurements of off-fault strain accommodated by hanging wall flexure suggest that over the ?200 m length of this site, a linear interpolation through the average values for the slip maxima at either end of this site most accurately represents subsurface displacement. In aggregate, these datasets show that given uncertainties of greater than ±11% (2?), slip distributions over shorter scales are likely to be less uneven than those derived from a single set of field- or lidar-based measurements. This suggests that the relatively smooth slip curves we obtain over ?102 m distances reflect real physical phenomena, whereas short wavelength variability over ?100-101 m distances can be attributed to measurement uncertainty.

The Mayor of EarthCube: Cities as an Analogue for Governing Cyberinfrastructure  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Historical development of national and global infrastructure follows common paths with common imperatives. The nascent development may be led a by champion, innovator, or incubating organization. Once the infrastructure reaches a tipping point and adoption spreads rapidly, the organization and governance evolves in concert. Ultimately, no wide-spread infrastructure (from canals to highways to the electric grid to radio/television, or the Internet) operates with a single overarching governing body. The NSF EarthCube initiative is a prototype implementation of cyberinfrastructure, using the broad geoscience community as the testbed. Governance for EarthCube is emulating the pattern of other infrastructure, which we argue is a system of systems that can be described by organized complexity, emergent systems, and non-linear thermodynamics. As we consider governance cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences, we might look to cities as analogs: cities provide services such as fire, police, water, and trash collection. Cities issue permits and often oversee zoning, but much of what defines cities is outside the direct control of city government. Businesses choose whether to locate there, where to operate, and what to build. Residents make similar decisions. State and federal agencies make decisions or impose criteria that greatly affect cities, without necessarily getting agreement from them. City government must thus operate at multiple levels - providing oversight and management of city services, interaction with residents, businesses, and visitors, and dealing with actions and decisions made by independent entities over which they have little or no control. Cities have a range of organizational and management models, ranging from city managers, councils, and weak to strong mayors, some elected directly, some chosen from councils. The range and complexity of governance issues in building, operating, and sustaining cyberinfrastructure in the geosciences and beyond, rival those of running a medium to large city. The range of organizational and management structures in meeting community needs and goals are also diverse and may embody a multi-faceted set of governing archetypes, best suited to carry out each of myriad functions. We envision cyberinfrastructure governance to be a community-driven enterprise empowered to carry out a dynamic set of functions, operating within a set of processes (comparable to a city charter) and guiding principles (constitution).

GPS Time Series Analysis of Southern California Associated with the 2010 M7.2 El Mayor/Cucapah Earthquake  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Magnitude 7.2 El-Mayor/Cucapah earthquake the occurred in Mexico on April 4, 2012 was well instrumented with continuous GPS stations in California. Large Offsets were observed at the GPS stations as a result of deformation from the earthquake providing information about the co-seismic fault slip as well as fault slip from large aftershocks. Information can also be obtained from the position time series at each station.

Differentiating static and dynamic triggering near Salton Sea following the 2010 Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Whether static or dynamic triggering is the dominant mechanism for triggering aftershocks in near field is currently under heated debate. Previous studies on earthquake triggering mostly examined seismicity rate changes around the occurrence time of large earthquakes based on existing earthquake catalogs. However, such catalogs could be incomplete immediately after the mainshock, which may cause apparent seismicity rate changes that are unrelated to stress changes. In this study, we examine seismicity rate changes around the Salton Sea geothermal region following the 2010 Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake in Baja California. We focus on this region mainly because of its abundant background seismicity, dense network coverage, and being in the apparent stress shadow of the mainshock, which is the key factor to differentiate static and dynamic triggering. According to the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN) catalog, the seismicity rate near Salton Sea clearly increased immediately after the mainshock and dropped below the pre-mainshock level within a few days. The seismicity remains low for another few months before returning back to the pre-mainshock level. To check whether such patterns are caused by catalog incompleteness, we are currently applying a waveform-based matched filter technique to detect possible missing events around Salton Sea that were masked by rigorous aftershock sequence around the mainshock rupture region. With more completed catalog, we can identify the genuine seismicity rate changes for better comparison with the static and dynamic stress changes. In addition to seismicity rate, static and dynamic stress changes could also affect seismic velocity in the upper crust, with a pattern that is somewhat similar to seismicity rate changes. Thus, monitoring seismic velocity changes can further help to differentiate the triggering mechanisms. In our preliminary study, we apply the ambient noise cross-correlation technique to continuously monitor the seismic velocity near Salton Sea ten days before and after the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. We find that immediately after the mainshock, seismic velocity near Salton Sea reduced up to 0.4% and followed by a fast recovery in the next three days. From 5 to 10 days after the mainshock, the velocity changes remained ~0.2% lower than the pre-shock level. Such co-seismic decrease was most likely caused by the widespread damages induced by strong ground motion, suggesting that dynamic stress changes were dominant in the short term. We are currently applying the same technique at later times to check whether the velocity change returns back to the pre-mainshock or not.

The songs of Tlaloc: Interference of ten ceramical duct flutes, Offering 89 of the Aztec Templo Mayor  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Among the many preserved sound artefacts deposited in the offerings of the Aztec Templo Mayor are a set of ten tubular duct flutes made from clay, dating Late Postclassic Mesoamerica, 1350-1521 AD. The aerophones are completely painted in blue, and characterized by: (1) a short mouthpiece; (2) a framed aperture; (3) a tube with four fingerholes; and (4) an applicated mask with features of the Aztec rain god Tlaloc, basically three rings and a standardized relief structure of two clouds. While all measurements follow the same pattern, one particular organological distinction was made, as five flutes show an exit hole in the middle ring of the mask and five flutes are stopped. Thus, five instruments sound considerably higher, apart from the minimal pitch deviation of each specimen. Both the tonal capacity of each flute and the acoustics of several flutes played simultaneously were recorded and measured. A series of remarkable interference effects could be produced, which were strongly related to the ritual complex reflected in the offering. Taking in consideration the Aztec concept of music, it could be supposed that they were perceived as a principle of the song, or proper voice of Tlaloc.

Aftershocks of the 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake revealcomplex faulting in the Yuha Desert, California  

USGS Publications Warehouse

We detect and precisely locate over 9500 aftershocks that occurred in the Yuha Desert region during a 2 month period following the 4 April 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah (EMC) earthquake. Events are relocated using a series of absolute and relative relocation procedures that include Hypoinverse, Velest, and hypoDD. Location errors are reduced to ~40 m horizontally and ~120 m vertically.Aftershock locations reveal a complex pattern of faulting with en echelon fault segments trending toward the northwest, approximately parallel to the North American-Pacific plate boundary and en echelon, conjugate features trending to the northeast. The relocated seismicity is highly correlated with published surface mapping of faults that experienced triggered surface slip in response to the EMC main shock. Aftershocks occurred between 2 km and 11 km depths, consistent with previous studies of seismogenic thickness in the region. Three-dimensional analysis reveals individual and intersecting fault planes that are limited in their along-strike length. These fault planes remain distinct structures at depth, indicative of conjugate faulting, and do not appear to coalesce onto a throughgoing fault segment. We observe a complex spatiotemporal migration of aftershocks, with seismicity that jumps between individual fault segments that are active for only a few days to weeks. Aftershock rates are roughly consistent with the expected earthquake production rates of Dieterich (1994). The conjugate pattern of faulting and nonuniform aftershock migration patterns suggest that strain in the Yuha Desert is being accommodated in a complex manner.

Long-Period Ground-Motion Simulations of the Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 4 April 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake generated strong shaking that was recorded by over 200 strong motion instruments throughout northern Baja California and southern California. At longer periods (T > 2 sec), rupture directivity and basin response effects lead to amplified ground motions and extended shaking durations in the Imperial/Coachella, San Bernardino and Los Angeles regions. Using a suite of hypothetical finite-fault rupture models, we test the ability of long-period ground-motion simulations of scenario earthquakes to produce waveforms consistent with these recordings. The hypothetical ruptures are constructed using the methodology proposed by Graves and Pitarka (2010) and require, as inputs, only a general description of the fault location and geometry, event magnitude and hypocenter. For each rupture model, simulations are run for two Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) 3D community seismic velocity models (CVM-4m and CVM-H62). While the details of the motions vary across the simulations, the median levels match the observed peak ground velocities reasonably well with the standard deviation of the residuals generally within 50% of the median. For the non-basin regions, simulations with the CVM-H62 model perform significantly better than those of CVM-4m, which we attribute to the inclusion of the Tape et al. (2009) tomographic updates within the background crustal velocity structure of CVM-H62. Within the greater Los Angeles region, the CVM-4m model generally matches the level of observed motions whereas the CVM-H62 model over-predicts the motions in the southernmost portion of the basin. Animations of the simulated wave fields demonstrate this over-prediction is created by the sharp impedance contrast along the southern margin of the Los Angeles basin in the CVM-H62 model. For both seismic velocity models, the variance in the peak velocity residuals is lowest for a rupture that has significant shallow slip (less than 5 km depth), whereas the variance in the residuals is greatest for ruptures with large asperities below 10 km depth. These results are consistent with recent source inversion studies indicating this earthquake was dominated by shallow (less than 10 km depth) moment release (e.g., Wei et al, 2010).

Postseismic Deformation Following the 2010 M = 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake: Observations, Kinematic Inversions, and Dynamic Models  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Due to its location on a transtensional section of the Pacific-North American plate boundary, the Salton Trough is a region featuring large strike-slip earthquakes within a regime of shallow asthenosphere, high heat flow, and complex faulting, and so postseismic deformation there may feature enhanced viscoelastic relaxation and afterslip that is particularly detectable at the surface. The 2010 M = 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake was the largest shock in the Salton Trough since 1892 and occurred close to the US-Mexico border, and so the postseismic deformation recorded by the continuous GPS network of southern California provides an opportunity to study the rheology of this region. Three-year postseismic transients extracted from GPS displacement time-series show four key features: (1) 1-2 cm of cumulative uplift in the Imperial Valley and ˜ 1 cm of subsidence in the Peninsular Ranges, (2) relatively large cumulative horizontal displacements > 150 km from the rupture in the Peninsular Ranges, (3) rapidly decaying horizontal displacement rates in the first few months after the earthquake in the Imperial Valley, and (4) sustained horizontal velocities, following the rapid early motions, that were still visibly ongoing 3 years after the earthquake. Kinematic inversions show that the cumulative 3-year postseismic displacement field can be well fit by afterslip on and below the coseismic rupture, though these solutions require afterslip with a total moment equivalent to at least a M = 7.2 earthquake and higher slip magnitudes than those predicted by coseismic stress changes. Forward modeling shows that stress-driven afterslip and viscoelastic relaxation in various configurations within the lithosphere can reproduce the early and later horizontal velocities in the Imperial Valley, while Newtonian viscoelastic relaxation in the asthenosphere can reproduce the uplift in the Imperial Valley and the subsidence and large westward displacements in the Peninsular Ranges. We present two forward models of dynamically coupled deformation mechanisms that fit the postseismic transient well: a model combining afterslip in the lower crust, Newtonian viscoelastic relaxation in a localized zone in the lower crust beneath areas of high heat flow and geothermal activity, and Newtonian viscoelastic relaxation in the asthenosphere; and a second model that replaces the afterslip in the first model with viscoelastic relaxation with a stress-dependent viscosity in the mantle. The rheology of this high-heat-flow, high-strain-rate region may incorporate elements of both these models and may well be more complex than either of them.

Recent benthic foraminifers as indicators of the sedimentary dynamics of the Tina Mayor and Tina Menor estuaries (S Bay of Biscay, N Spain)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Recent benthic foraminifers from two estuaries in the North Spanish coastal region (Tina Mayor and Tina Menor) were analysed with the aim of characterising the ecology and dynamics of the different estuarine sub-environments. A total of 35 benthic foraminifer species were taxonomically determined in the Tina Mayor estuary, 22 of which contained living individuals during the sampling. For Tina Menor, there were 51 species, 30 of them biocenotic. The most abundant species in these estuaries were Ammonia tepida, Cribroelphidium williamsoni, Jadammina macrescens, Lobatula lobatula, Miliammina fusca, Rosalina globularis and Trochammina inflata. In Tina Menor, Haynesina germanica was also abundant. In the foraminifer assemblages, live (biocenotic) and dead (thanatocenotic) specimens were differentiated and processed statistically by a multivariate cluster-Q type analysis and detrended correspondence ordination analysis (DCA). Groupings of biocenotic assemblages were obtained for both estuaries indicating an ecologic separation of marine mouth, low and high marsh and zones with strong salinity oscillations in these estuaries. Thanatocenotic groupings, nevertheless, showed a different organisation of that of the ecologic groups, which were indicative of a transport of individuals from the mouth to the inner/mid estuary locations, along the main and/or secondary channels of these estuaries. Local differences between Tina Mayor and Tina Menor can be explained by the different physiographies of the estuary as a consequence of the different geological/sedimentological histories of both estuaries. Benthic foraminifer assemblages are distributed in the estuary following three zones: an outer estuary having marine characteristics with L. lobatula and R. globularis, a mid estuary, including a subtidal mudflat with variable salinity (A. tepida, C. williamsoni) and a marsh (J. macrescens, M. fusca and T. inflata), which is different in both estuaries. Tina Mayor is filled with more sediment, and it has a reduced mudflat and a large high marsh located above the MHW (Mean High Waters), where T. inflata is the species marker of the intervals between the MHW and MHWST (Mean High Waters Spring Tides) levels. In Tina Menor, estuary mudflats crossed with brackish secondary channels (with H. germanica) below MHWNT (Mean High Waters Neap Tides) are more developed, though the environments of low marsh with scarce vegetation (with M. fusca) are dominant in intervals between MHWNT and MHW. The relative abundance of M. fusca, particularly in the mid estuary, differentiates Tina Mayor and Tina Menor from other estuaries of Cantabria. Biocenotic and thanatocenotic assemblages show a general similarity in both estuaries (Sanders's index, > 70%). Samples with low similarity are evidence of the effect of post-mortem transport mostly produced by suspension. The percentage of exotic specimens is always less than 35%, supporting the mesotidal characteristic of both estuaries. The present results confirm the value of benthic foraminifers as markers of estuarine sub-environments, supporting their value for detecting changes in past estuarine environments.

Correlation of Peak Dynamic and Static Coulomb Failure Stress with Seismicity Rate Change after the M7.2 EL Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We have investigated the relation between the April 4 Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake and seismicity rate changes in southern California and northern Baja California in the months following the mainshock. Specifically, we use a dynamic rupture model with observational constraints for the event simulated in the SCEC 3D CVM4.0 (Roten and Olsen, 2009) to calculate the changes in the resulting static (dCFS) and dynamic Coulomb failure stress, parameterized by its largest positive amplitude (peak dCFS(t)). We employ a modified cross correlation between the seismicity rate change (for both undeclustered and declustered catalogs) and both dCFS and peak dCFS(t) in time and space (as used by Kilb et. al, 2002). We find that the correlation parameter is greater for peak dCFS(t) compared to dCFS and highest for periods after the mainshock of longer than 1 week for dCFS, and a maximum at 1 month for peak dCFS(t). We perform this analysis using both CVM-4 and CVM-H, investigating, in particular, which model better describes the increased seismicity NW of the rupture. The stress changes are rotated onto the focal mechanism of the June 15, 2010 Mw5.7 aftershock as well as onto optimum oriented planes (King, 1994). For regionally rotated stresses we find that while the dCFS values are very similar for the two CVMs, the corresponding peak dCFS(t) values are noticeably different. In particular, CVM-H generates a lobe of (directivity-induced) large peak dCFS(t) between the Elsinore and San Jacinto Faults toward the Los Angeles basin not present in the results from CVM-4. However, both CVMs produce similar peak dCFS(t) lobes near San Diego. Finally, we searched for threshold levels of dCFS and peak dCFS(t) that may be required to trigger earthquakes/aftershocks of different magnitude that might provide clues to earthquake prediction; we found a possible peak dCFS(t) threshold value of 0.7 bars for aftershocks (>4000) in regions of positive static stress. Peak dynamic stress change (in bars) calculated from CVM-4 for the April 4 Mw7.2 El Mayor- Cucapah earthquake, rotated onto a strike of 310 degrees, corresponding to the rupture of the Mw 5.72 June 15, 2010 event (epicenter depicted by the white star, mainshock by black star).

Seismicity rate changes in the Salton Sea Geothermal Field and the San Jacinto Fault Zone after the 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Whether static or dynamic stress changes play the most important role in triggering earthquakes in the near field is still in debate. Here, we examine the seismicity rate changes in southern California following the 2010 Mw 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. We focus on the Salton Sea Geothermal Field (SSGF) and the San Jacinto Fault Zone (SJFZ) because of high-sensitivity continuous borehole recordings and ample background seismicity. A significant increase in seismic activity is found in both study regions immediately following the main shock. However, near the SSGF where the static Coulomb stress decreased, the seismicity rate dropped below the pre-main-shock rate after ˜1 month. In comparison, along the SJFZ with an increase in the static Coulomb stress, the seismicity rate remained higher than the background rate with several moderate-size earthquakes occurring in the subsequent months. While we cannot completely rule out other mechanisms, these observations are best consistent with a widespread increase in seismicity from dynamic stress changes immediately after the main shock, and longer term seismicity rate changes from static stress changes. Our observation, together with other recent studies, suggests that both static and dynamic stress changes are important in triggering near-field earthquakes, but their affected regions and timescales are different.

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.

Fumar cigarrillos está relacionado con la mitad de los casos de cáncer de vejiga en mujeres; estudio de los NIH confirma que el riesgo de cáncer de vejiga por fumar es mayor de lo que se calculó anteriormente  

Cancer.gov

Los fumadores actuales de cigarrillos tienen un mayor riesgo de padecer cáncer de vejiga que lo que se informó anteriormente, y ahora el riesgo de las mujeres es comparable al riesgo de los hombres, de acuerdo a un estudio llevado a cabo por científicos del Instituto Nacional del Cáncer (NCI). Aunque estudios anteriores mostraron que solo 20 a 30 % de los casos de cáncer en mujeres eran causados por fumar, estos nuevos datos indican que fumar es responsable de aproximadamente la mitad de los casos de cáncer de vejiga en la mujer.

B4 2 After, 3D Deformation Field From Matching Pre- To Post-Event Aerial LiDAR Point Clouds, The 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah M7.2 Earthquake Case  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Aerial LiDAR surveys reconstruct with amazing fidelity the sinuosity of terrain relief. In this research we explore the 3D deformation field at the surface after a big earthquake (M7.2) by comparing pre- to post-event aerial LiDAR point clouds. The April 4 2010 earthquake produced a NW-SE surface rupture ~110km long with right-lateral normal slip up to 3m in magnitude over a very favorable target: scarcely vegetated and unaltered desert mountain range, sierras El Mayor and Cucapah, in northern Baja California, close to the US-México border. It is a plate boundary region between the Pacific and North American plates. The pre-event LiDAR with lower point density (0.013-0.033 pts m-2) required filtering and post-processing before comparing with the denser (9-18 pts m-2) more accurate post event dataset. The 3D surface displacement field was determined using an adaptation of the Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm, implemented in the open source Point Cloud Library (PCL). The LiDAR datasets are first split into a grid of windows, and for each one, ICP iteratively converges on the rigid body transformation (comprising translations and rotations) that best aligns the pre- to post-event points. Perturbing the pre- and post-event point clouds independently with a synthetic right lateral inverse displacements of known magnitude along a proposed fault, ICP recovered the synthetically introduced translations. Windows with dimensions of 100-200m gave the best results for datasets with these densities. The simplified surface rupture photo interpreted and mapped in the field, delineates very well the vertical displacements patterns unveiled by ICP. The method revealed block rotations, some with clockwise and others counter clockwise direction along the simplified surface rupture. As ground truth, displacements from ICP have similar values as those measured in the field along the main rupture by Fletcher and collaborators. The vertical component was better estimated than the horizontal having the latter problems in flat areas as expected. Hybrid approaches, as simple differencing, could be taken in these areas. Outliers were removed from results. ICP detected extraction from quarries developed between the two dates of LiDAR collection and expressed as a negative vertical displacement close to the sites. To improve the accuracy of the 3D displacement field, we intend to reprocess the pre-event source survey data to reduce the systematic error introduced by the sensor. Multidisciplinary approach will be needed to make tectonic inferences from the 3D displacement field revealed by ICP, about the processes at depth expressed at surface.

Kinematic fault slip model from joint inversion of teleseismic, GPS, InSAR and subpixel-correlation measurements of the 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake and postseismic deformation (Invited)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use interferometric analysis of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images (InSAR) and pixel tracking by subpixel correlation of SAR and optical images to map the fault ruptures and surface deformation of the 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake (Mw 7.2) in Baja California, Mexico. We then combine sampled InSAR and subpixel correlation results with GPS offsets at PBO stations and teleseismic waveforms in a joint inversion to produce a kinematic fault slip model. Pixel-tracking measurements from SPOT 2.5 m panchromatic images and from Envisat ASAR and ALOS PALSAR images measure large ground displacements close to fault ruptures, with a strong discontinuity where the rupture reached the surface. Optical image subpixel correlation measures horizontal displacements in both the east-west and north-south directions and shows the earthquake ruptured the Pescadores Fault in the southern Sierra Cucapah and the Borrego Fault in the central and northern edge of the mountain range. At the south end of the Sierra Cucapah, the fault ruptures fork into two subparallel strands with substantial slip on both visible. SAR image subpixel correlation measures horizontal deformation in the along-track direction of the satellite (approximately north or south) and in the radar line-of-sight direction. SAR along-track offsets, especially on ALOS images, show that there is a large amount of right-lateral slip (1-3 m) on a previously unmapped system of faults extending about 60 km to the southeast of the epicenter beneath the Colorado River Delta named the Indiviso Fault system. Aftershocks also extend approximately the same distance to the southeast. InSAR analyses of Envisat, ALOS and UAVSAR images, measure the surface displacements in the same radar line-of-sight as the range pixel tracking, but with much greater precision. Combination of SAR images from different directions allows the separation of the vertical and east components of the deformation, revealing the large normal fault slip in the Sierra Cucapah (down to the east) and blocks with substantial vertical motion in the Delta (both down to the east and down to the west). Kinematic finite fault modeling shows a bilateral rupture with fault slip shallower than 10 km on the faults to the NW and SE of the epicenter. The InSAR also reveals slip on many minor faults on both sides of the Sierra Cucapah and to the northwest, with displacements of cm to 10’s of cm. High-resolution UAVSAR coseismic and postseismic interferograms revealed triggered slip on a number of faults in the Yuha desert and Salton Trough, with some slip occurring in the three months after the main shock. Postseismic InSAR shows rapid afterslip on shallow faults at the north and south ends of the main coseismic rupture. Areas of the Colorado River Delta that subsided during the main earthquake continued to subside afterwards. Larger spatial scales of postseismic deformation that would be expected from viscoelastic relaxation are difficult to measure in the InSAR data because of large variations in tropospheric water vapor.

Characteristics of Long-Period (3 to 10 s) Strong Ground Motions Observed in and around the Los Angeles Basin during the Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake of April 4, 2010  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We examined the characteristics of long-period strong ground motions within a period range of 3 to 10 s in and around the Los Angeles (LA) basin during the Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake. The contour map of the observed peak ground velocity (PGV) values clearly shows that the LA basin significantly amplifies the long-period motions. The largest PGV values observed within the LA basin range from 0.1 to 0.12 m/s, though the basin is around 350 km away from the epicenter. These largest PGV values were recorded at seven stations in the central part, and one station in the western part of the basin. The Fourier acceleration spectra of records from these eight stations are predominant at the periods of 6 to 8 s with the corresponding peak values of 1 to 1.4 m/s. The ratio of Fourier amplitudes with respect to a reference site (STG station of the Southern California Seismic Network, located on hard rock in the southeast edge of the LA basin) show that the spectral amplitudes at these eight stations are 5 to 13 times larger than those at the reference site within a wide period range, 5.5 to 9 s. To understand how the spatial variation of amplification for the long-period motions is related to the basin underground structure, we plotted contours of the amplification factors at 3, 5, 7 and 10 s spectral periods with respect to the reference site (i.e. STG station) onto several different maps, where depths to different S-wave velocities (Vs) are also depicted using the latest SCEC Community Velocity Model (CVM-H 6.2). Comparison of amplification contours with the basin model indicates that for the 10 s spectral period, the largest amplification occurs in the central part of the LA basin where the depth to the Vs of 3.2 km/s reaches to the maximum, 9.5 km. For the 3, 5 and 7 s spectral periods, the amplification becomes larger in almost the same area as the 10 s case (the central part of the LA basin) and also in the San Gabriel valley, where the depth to the Vs of 1.5 km/s reaches to the maximum, 3.7 km. Although the depth to bedrock (Vs > 3.2 km/s) is shallower (3.6 to 4 km) in the San Gabriel valley than the LA basin, the large amplification is due to the thick soft sediments (Vs < 1.5 km/s). This suggests importance of precise seismic velocity profiles at both shallow- and deep-part of sedimentary basins for a more accurate prediction of long-period strong ground motions.

Spectral Amplification Factors of Long-Period (3 to 10 s) Strong Ground Motions in and around the Los Angeles Basin during the Mw7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake of April 4, 2010  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We evaluated spectral amplification factors of long-period ground motions (3 to 10 s) in the Los Angeles (LA) basin by computing Fourier spectral ratios of the basin sites with respect to the surrounding reference hard-rock sites from the Mw7.2 April 4, 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake records and presented period-specific (4, 6, 8 and 10 s) maps of amplification factors for the long periods. This earthquake was the first event providing many (236) high-quality recordings to study spatial variation of long-period amplification in the LA basin. We also tried numerical wave propagation simulations for two of the recent 3D seismic-velocity models for south California: SCEC (Southern California Earthquake Center) CVM (Community Velocity Model)-4.0 and CVM-H 6.2 to examine how these models account for the observed long-period amplification factors. Comparison of the period-specific maps of amplification factors between the observation and the simulation for the two velocity models shows that both CVM-4.0 and CVM-H 6.2 can roughly reproduce the observed amplification factors with the period range of 8 to 10 s in the LA basin. Concerning the shorter-period range (4 to 6 s), however, both of the two models leave more to be improved so that the observed amplification factors can be better simulated. We also find that CVM-4.0 has an advantage over CVM-H 6.2 in terms of the south-eastern part of the LA basin, because CVM-H 6.2 indicates non-observed large amplification there, while CVM-4.0 does not indicate the false amplification. For the period of 10 s, the largest amplification factor of about 5 was observed in the central part of the LA basin, which is well simulated in terms of good agreements between the observed and the simulated amplification factors. The simulation from the two velocity models also indicates the large amplification even in the San Gabriel (SG) valley, which disagrees with the observation. For 8 s, larger amplification factors of about 5 were observed not only in the central part of the LA basin but also in the SG valley, which are also well simulated by both of the two models. The CVM-H 6.2 simulation undershoots the observation in the western part of the LA basin, while CVM-4.0 can almost reproduce it. For 6 s, the largest amplification is observed in the western part of the basin (Manhattan Beach), although the amplification in the central part is also large. Around Manhattan Beach, the ground motions with this period are amplified by a factor of 10. There is significant discrepancy between the observation and the simulation for the two models in terms of the places where the largest amplification occurs. For the period of 4 s, the largest amplification factor of about 8 occurs in the central part of the LA basin. Again, the spatial pattern of amplification is basically failed to simulate by either of the two models.

Strike-slip Fault Structure in the Salton Trough and Deformation During and After the 2010 M7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah Earthquake from Geodetic and Seismic Data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Pacific-North America plate boundary character changes southward from the strike-slip and transpressional configuration along most of California to oblique rifting in the Gulf of California, with a transitional zone of transtension beneath the Salton Trough in southernmost California and northern Mexico. The Salton Trough is characterized by extremely high heat flow and thin lithosphere with a thick fill of sedimentary material delivered by the Colorado River during the past 5-6 million years. Because of the rapid sedimentation, most of the faults in Salton Trough are buried and reveal themselves when they slip either seismically or aseismically. They can also be located by refraction and reflection of seismic waves. The 4 April 2010 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake (Mw 7.2) in Baja California and Sonora, Mexico is probably the largest earthquake in the Salton Trough for at least 120 years, and had primarily right-lateral strike-slip motion. The earthquake ruptured a complex set of faults that lie to the west of the main plate boundary fault, the Cerro Prieto Fault, and shows that the strike-slip fault system in the southern Salton Trough has multiple sub-parallel active faults, similar to southern California. The Cerro Prieto Fault is still likely absorbing the majority of strain in the plate boundary. We study the coseismic and postseismic deformation of the 2010 earthquake with interferometric analysis of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images (InSAR) and pixel tracking by subpixel correlation of SAR and optical images. We combine sampled InSAR and subpixel correlation results with GPS (Global Positioning System) offsets at PBO (Plate Boundary Observatory) stations to estimate the likely subsurface geometry of the major faults that slipped during the earthquake and to derive a static coseismic slip model. We constrained the surface locations of the fault segments to mapped locations in the Sierra Cucapah to the northwest of the epicenter. SAR along-track offsets, especially on ALOS images, show that there is a large amount of right-lateral slip (1-3 m) on a previously unmapped system of faults extending about 60 km to the southeast of the epicenter beneath the Colorado River Delta named the Indiviso Fault system. The finite fault slip modeling shows a bilateral rupture with coseismic fault slip shallower than 10 km on the faults to the NW (dipping NE) and SE (dipping SW) of the epicenter. The southeastern end of the coseismic ruptures has complex fault geometry, including both east- and west-dipping faults revealed by recently reprocessed seismic reflection profiles. This new coseismic fault geometry will be the basis for a new finite element model of the crust and mantle for modeling of the coseismic slip with realistic 3D elastic structure and the viscoelastic postseismic relaxation. Postseismic InSAR, including new Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle SAR (UAVSAR) data, and GPS show rapid shallow afterslip on faults at the north and south ends of the main coseismic rupture and down-dip from the area of largest coseismic slip. Longer wavelength postseismic relaxation will be best measured by GPS.

Mecanismos de plasticidad (funcional y dependiente de actividad) en el cerebro auditivo adulto y en desarrollo  

PubMed Central

Summary Introduction and development Sensory systems show a topographic representation of the sensory epithelium in the central nervous system. In the auditory system this representation originates tonotopic maps. For the last four decades these changes in tonotopic maps have been widely studied either after peripheral mechanical lesions or by exposing animals to an augmented acoustic environment. These sensory manipulations induce plastic reorganizations in the tonotopic map of the auditory cortex. By contrast, acoustic trauma does not seem to induce functional plasticity at subcortical nuclei. Mechanisms that generate these changes differ in their molecular basis and temporal course and we can distinguish two different mechanisms: those involving an active reorganization process, and those that show a simple reflection of the loss of peripheral afferences. Only the former involve a genuine process of plastic reorganization. Neuronal plasticity is critical for the normal development and function of the adult auditory system, as well as for the rehabilitation needed after the implantation of auditory prostheses. However, development of plasticity can also generate abnormal sensation like tinnitus. Recently, a new concept in neurobiology so-called ‘neuronal stability’ has emerged and its implications and conceptual basis could help to improve the treatments of hearing loss. Conclusion A combination of neuronal plasticity and stability is suggested as a powerful and promising future strategy in the design of new treatments of hearing loss. PMID:19340783

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.

Estudio epidemiológico de sucesos traumáticos, trastorno de estrés post-traumático y otros trastornos psiquiátricos en una muestra representativa de Chile  

PubMed Central

RESUMEN Durante la década de 1990 en los Estados Unidos (EU), el conocimiento sobre el trastorno de estrés post-traumático (TEPT) evolucionó de estudios específicos en un principio, sobre veteranos de guerra y sobre víctimas de desastres, a estudios epidemiológicos más tarde, sin embargo, la epidemiología del TEPT en países en desarrollo ha sido un área poco estudiada hasta ahora. Los expertos en el área de trauma han propuesto que los sucesos traumáticos que ocurren en la niñez son más perjudiciales para la salud mental que aquellos que ocurren más tarde en la vida. Este trabajo revisa los resultados de un estudio epidemiológico llevado a cabo en Chile. Específicamente, se revisan los resultados sobre las tasas de prevalencia del TEPT, traumas asociados más frecuentemente con él, así como la comorbilidad de este trastorno con otros trastornos psiquiátricos a lo largo de la vida. Igualmente se analizaron las diferencias del TEPT en cada sexo, así como la exposición a traumas en una muestra representativa de chilenos. Además se comparó la prevalencia de trastornos psiquiátricos en personas que sufrieron su primer trauma durante la niñez, durante la edad adulta, o que no reportaron traumas durante su vida. En estos estudios epidemiológicos se usaron módulos del TEPT y trastorno de personalidad antisocial (TPA) de la entrevista diagnóstica siguiendo los criterios del DSM-III-R (DIS–III-R). Para evaluar el resto de los trastornos psiquiátricos se usó la Entrevista Diagnóstica Internacional Compuesta (CIDI). Estos instrumentos fueron administrados en tres ciudades chilenas a 2390 personas mayores de 15 años. Para estimar los errores estándares (EE) debido al diseño de la muestra y a la necesidad de ajuste se usó el método Taylor de linearización seriada. También se usó un análisis de regresión logística para examinar la relación entre el TEPT, los factores demográficos de riesgo y el tipo de trauma. Además se utilizó la regresión logística multivariada para evaluar si la relación entre el TEPT y el sexo pudiera ser explicada por medio de otros factores de riesgo, así como para calcular las tasas y la oportunidad relativa (razón de productos cruzados) de trastornos psiquiátricos a lo largo de la vida. El primer análisis arrojó que la prevalencia de TEPT a lo largo de la vida fue de 4.4% (2.5% para hombres y 6.2% para mujeres). De los hechos traumáticos reportados, la violación sexual tuvo una correlación más alta con el TEPT que los demás hechos traumáticos. Las mujeres tuvieron más probabilidades de experimentar TEPT que los hombres, después de controlar la variable asalto violento. El segundo análisis evidenció que los que habían sufrido traumas a lo largo de la vida tuvieron mayor probabilidad de tener un trastorno psiquiátrico en comparación con aquellos que no reportaron traumas. También se encontró que los que sufrieron su primer trauma durante la infancia tuvieron más probabilidad de desarrollar trastornos de pánico a lo largo de la vida que aquellos que sufrieron su primer trauma en la edad adulta, independientemente del número de traumas que sufrieron y de las diferencias demográficas. Aunque Chile tiene un contexto histórico-cultural y una economía diferente a otros países en los que se ha estudiado anteriormente la epidemiología del TEPT, el presente estudio reflejó tendencias similares a las reportadas en estudios previos. Los hallazgos expuestos enfatizan la importancia de investigar la prevalencia del TEPT, los patrones de comorbilidad del TEPT y las diferencias de sexo en la prevalencia del TEPT en diferentes países. También estos resultados sugieren que los sucesos traumáticos en la infancia

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.

Nesting biology, morphological remarks, and description of the mature larva of Mellinus arvensis obscurus (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) in Nepal  

SciTech Connect

Recently re-named as a sub-species of Mellinus arvensis, Mellinus arvensis obscurus Handlirsch 1888 was investigated ecologically and morphologically in Nepal, in order to underline the most important differences with the well known M. arvensis arvensis. Mellinus arvensis obscurus females nested in clumped aggregations on inclined plains at high altitudes, both on sunny bare soil and on a shaded grassy one. Beginning of monsoon season probably interfered with wasp activity, and females performed few provisioning flights during the day. Prey consisted of a broad range of Diptera, except for one case of a spider. Many females were observed not provisioning a nest but floating on the nesting site, and many intraspecific interactions suggested a high degree of usurpation attempts. At least one species of flies and two of ants probably acted as natural enemies of the wasp. Morphological observations on females showed that the Nepal population shares more similarities (shape of tergite I, body punctation) with the European populations than with the closer Japanese population; melanization is strong, according to west-east and altitudinal cline. The mature larva of M. arvensis obscurus Handlirsch is described, illustrated, and compared with the other mature larva of the genus. The differences between both larvae mainly lie in the presence/absence, and number or differentiation of integumental structures. We conclude that morphological traits are more important than ecological and behavioral ones in distinguishing M. arvensis obscurus from M. arvensis arvensis. (author) [Spanish] En el presente articulo se aportan los resultados y conclusiones de un estudio, llevado a cabo en Nepal, en el que se abordaron aspectos ecologicos, comportamentales y morfologicos (tanto del ultimo estado de la fase larvaria como del adulto) de Mellinus arvensis obscurus Handlirsch 1888. El principal objetivo del estudio radicaba en mostrar las principales diferencias que separan a esta subespecie de la bien estudiada subespecie nominal. Mellinus arvensis obscurus nidifica a gran altitud, en terreno inclinado, con y sin vegetacion, expuesto en mayor o menor medida al sol y en agregaciones muy compactas. Durante la estacion lluviosa la hembras llevan a cabo pocos vuelos de aprovisonamiento. Las presas pertenecen al orden de los dipteros, aunque, en una ocasion se observo el aporte de una arana. Gran numero de las interacciones intraespecificas observadas sugieren un alto grado de intentos de usurpacion de nidos. Los enemigos naturales mas sobresalientes pertenecen al orden de los dipteros y a la familia de los formicidos. Del estudio morfologico del adulto, mencionaremos que la foma del terguito 1 y la escultura del cuerpo, en las hembras de las poblaciones del Nepal, son mas semejantes a los de las hembras de las poblaciones europeas que no a los de las japonesas. De la fase larvaria se describe el ultimo estado larvario, a la vez que se compara con la otra larva madura ya descrita del genero. Las diferencias entre ambas larvas maduras radican en la presencia/ausencia, numero o diferenciacion de las estructuras tegumentarias. El estudio finaliza concluyendo que los rasgos morfologicos son mas importantes, que los aspectos ecologicos y comportamentales, a la hora de establecer una separacion entre las dos subespecies (author)

Use of IPA to demonstrate loss of forest interior birds from isolated woodlots  

USGS Publications Warehouse

'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.

Production and quality assurance in the SIT Africa Mediterranean fruit fly (Diptera: Tephritidae) rearing facility in South Africa  

SciTech Connect

A mass-rearing facility for Mediterranean fruit fly Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) was commissioned in Stellenbosch in 1999 to produce sterile male fruit flies for a sterile insect technique (SIT) project in commercial fruit orchards and vineyards in the Western Cape province of South Africa. The mass-rearing procedure was largely based on systems developed by the FAO/IAEA Agriculture and Biotechnology Laboratory, Seibersdorf, Austria. A number of genetic sexing strains were used to produce only males for release. Initial cramped rearing and quality management conditions were alleviated in 2001 with the construction of a new adult rearing room and quality control laboratory. In 2002 a comprehensive Quality Management System was implemented, and in 2003 an improved genetic sexing strain, VIENNA 8, was supplied by the FAO/IAEA Laboratory in Seibersdorf. For most of the first 3 years the facility was unable to supply the required number of sterile male Mediterranean fruit flies for the SIT program without importing sterile male pupae from another facility. From mid-2002, after the quality management system was implemented, both production and quality improved but remained below optimum. After the introduction of the VIENNA 8 genetic sexing strain, and together with an improvement in the climate control equipment, production stability, and quality assurance parameters improved substantially. The critical factors influencing production and quality were an inadequate rearing infrastructure, problems with the quality of the larval diet, and the initial absence of a quality management system. The results highlight the importance of effective quality management, the value of a stable and productive genetic sexing strain, and the necessity for a sound funding base for the mass-rearing facility. (author) [Spanish] La facilidad para criar en masa la mosca mediterranea de la fruta, Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) fue comisionada en Stellenbosch en 1999 para producir machos esteriles de moscas para el proyecto de la tecnica del insecto esteril (TIE) en huertos de frutos y vinas comerciales en la provincia del Cabo Occidental del Sudafrica. El procedimiento de criar en masa fue en su mayor parte basado en los sistemas desarrollados por el Laboratorio de Agricultura y Biotecnologia de la FAO/IAEA, Seibersdorf, Austria. Un numero de razas que separara los sexos geneticamente fueron utilizadas para producir solo machos para la liberacion. La congestionada condicion inicial para criar las moscas y su manejo de calidad fueron aliviadas en 2001 con la construccion de un nuevo cuarto de cria para adultos y un laboratorio de control de calidad. En 2002, un Sistema de Manejo de Calidad comprensivo fue implementado, y en 2003 una raza mejorada que separa los sexos geneticamente, VIENNA 8, fue proveido por el Laboratorio de la FAO/IAEA en Seibersdorf. En la mayor parte de los primeros 3 anos la facilidad no pudo suplir el numero requerido de machos esteriles de la mosca mediterranea de la fruta para el programa de TIE sin la necesidad para importar machos esteriles de otra facilidad. Desde medio del ano de 2002, despues que el sistema de manejo de calidad fue implementado, la produccion y la calidad mejoraron pero aun quedaron por debajo del nivel optimo. Despues de la introduccion de la raza VIENNA 8 que separa los sexos geneticamente, y junto con el equipo mejorado de control de clima, la estabilidad y los parametros de seguridad de calidad mejoraron substancialmente. Los factores criticos que influyeron en la produccion y la calidad fueron la infraestructura inadecuada para criar las moscas, problemas con la calidad de la dieta para las larvas y la ausencia inicial de un sistema de manejo de calidad. Los resultados muestran claramente la importancia de un manejo efectivo de la calidad, el valor de una raza productiva que separa los sexos geneticamente y la necesidad de contar con una base solida de financimiento para la infraestructura de una cria en masa.

Uma análise do fenômeno “alternância de línguas” na fala de bilíngues intermodais (Libras e Português)  

PubMed Central

Um interessante fenômeno lingüístico presente nas interações das pessoas bilíngues é a alternância de línguas. Neste trabalho, estamos investigando a alternância entre a língua portuguesa oral e a língua de sinais brasileira – Libras, numa mesma cadeia enunciativa, com o objetivo de identificar e analisar o uso dessa alternância na fala de uma criança e de um adulto (ambos ouvintes, filhos de pais surdos), interagindo em uma situação de bilinguismo intermodal, com interlocutores surdos e ouvintes. A alternância de línguas, nesse caso, ocorre quando se para de falar em português e se alterna para sinalizar. O presente trabalho se caracteriza como um estudo inicial, com análise qualitativa de dados. Fazem parte do nosso corpus nove sessões de interações em Libras e em português oral, gravadas em vídeo, que fazem parte do Projeto Desenvolvimento Bilíngue Bimodal da UFSC. Os dados revelam que as características da alternância de línguas pelo adulto e pela criança parecem ter semelhanças e diferenças. O sujeito adulto parece ter feito um uso da alternância mais preocupado com o curso da interação. A criança, por sua vez, não parece tê-la usado com propósitos pragmáticos específicos. Quanto à extensão das alternâncias, pode-se perceber que tanto a criança quanto o adulto utilizaram enunciados maiores do que uma única palavra isolada. O papel dos interlocutores parece ter sido decisivo nas interações aqui investigadas – especialmente nas do adulto, já que a criança ainda está em processo de tomada de consciência do papel do interlocutor na interação.

Aquisição de Estreptococos Mutans e Desenvolvimento de Cárie Dental em Primogênitos  

PubMed Central

Objetivo Avaliar o momento de aquisição de estreptococos mutans (EM), desenvolvimento de cárie dental e as variáveis a eles associadas no decorrer de 23 meses, em primogênitos de famílias de baixo nível socioeconômico, desde os sete meses de idade. Método A amostra foi selecionada com base em mães densamente colonizadas por EM, incluindo todos os membros de 14 famílias que conviviam na mesma casa. Foram envolvidos no estudo 14 mães, pais e primogênitos e 8 parentes, na maioria avós. Exames clínicos e radiográficos iniciais determinaram os índices de cárie e condição periodontal dos adultos. Contagens de EM foram feitas em todos os adultos nas duas primeiras visitas. Nas crianças foram avaliados os níveis de EM, o número de dentes e de cáries, em quatro visitas. Resultados A prevalência de EM nos adultos foi alta, estando ausente em apenas um dos pais. EM foram detectados em 1, 2, 3 e 10 crianças, respectivamente nas visitas #1, 2, 3 e 4. A cárie dental foi detectada em apenas três crianças na última visita (aos 30 meses de idade), as quais apresentaram escores de EM significantemente maiores que as crianças sem cárie, na mesma visita. Conclusão Exclusivamente a condição social de baixa renda e mães densamente colonizadas por EM não são sinônimo de colonização precoce e alta atividade de cárie em crianças cuidadas em casa. O desenvolvimento de cárie está significantemente associado a escores elevados de EM nas crianças. PMID:22022218

Estimaciones de Prevalencia del VIH por Género y Grupo de Riesgo en Tijuana, México: 2006  

PubMed Central

OBJETIVO Estimar la prevalencia del VIH en adultos de 15-49 años de edad en Tijuana, México - en la población general y en subgrupos de riesgo en el 2006. METODOS Se obtuvieron datos demográficos del censo Mexicano del 2005, y la prevalencia del VIH se obtuvo de la literatura. Se construyó un modelo de prevalencia del VIH para la población general y de acuerdo al género. El análisis de sensibilidad consistió en estimar errores estándar del promedio-ponderado de la prevalencia del VIH y tomar derivados parciales con respecto a cada parámetro. RESULTADOS La prevalencia del VIH es 0.54%(N = 4,347) (Rango: 0.22%–0.86%, (N = 1,750–6,944)). Esto sugiere que 0.85%(Rango: 0.39%–1.31%) de los hombres y 0.22%(Rango: 0.04%–0.40%) de las mujeres podrían ser VIH-positivos. Los hombres que tienen sexo con hombres (HSH), las trabajadoras sexuales usuarias de drogas inyectables (MTS-UDI), MTS-noUDI, mujeres UDI, y los hombres UDI contribuyeron las proporciones más elevadas de personas infectadas por el VIH. CONCLUSIONES El número de adultos VIH-positivos entre subgrupos de riesgo en la población de Tijuana es considerable, marcando la necesidad de enforcar las intervenciones de prevención en sus necesidades específicas. El presente modelo estima que hasta 1 en cada 116 adultos podrían ser VIH-positivos. PMID:19685824

CHOQUES AGREGADOS E INVERSIÓN EN CAPITAL HUMANO: EL LOGRO EDUCATIVO SUPERIOR DURANTE LA DÉCADA PERDIDA EN MÉXICO  

PubMed Central

Este artículo documenta una respuesta agregada negativa del logro educativo superior (más de 12 años de escolaridad) en México a la recesión de 1982–83 y el estancamiento que le siguió. La respuesta no fue homogénea entre géneros, regiones y entornos familiares. Los hombres experimentaron una caída en el logro mientras que las mujeres experimentaron un crecimiento más lento. En promedio, los estados con un mayor logro antes del choque experimentaron mayores caídas. La respuesta entre distintos entornos familiares no presenta un patrón claro. Sin embargo, el efecto negativo en el logro se observa incluso entre hermanos. La evidencia sugiere una historia por el lado de la demanda: la caída en el ingreso de los hogares parece ser el determinante de la caída/desaceleración del logro educativo superior. La conclusión es que la recesión y la falta de crecimiento que le siguió tuvieron un efecto negativo importante y duradero en la formación de capacidades en México. PMID:25328251

La bioética en Nicaragua tiene un desarrollo incipiente: no está institucionalizada ni se han previsto los mecanismos formales que permitan resolver los problemas éticamente complejos, por lo tanto, constituye un gran reto por parte de las instituciones educativas y rectoras de la salud.

Neuroimagen en la enfermedad de Alzheimer: nuevas perspectivas  

PubMed Central

Introducción y desarrollo En los próximos 50 años vamos a presenciar un incremento significativo de la población mayor de 65 años y por lo tanto va a aumentar, considerablemente, el número de individuos con riesgo de desarrollar demencias neurodegenerativas, especialmente la enfermedad de Alzheimer (EA). Las estrategias actuales de tratamiento farmacológico y no farmacológico se han centrado en las fases sintomáticas de esta enfermedad y, gradualmente, vamos teniendo una mayor comprensión de los posibles factores de riesgo del síndrome clínico. Conclusiones Los estudios de neuroimagen han sido muy útiles para mostrar los cambios estructurales del envejecimiento normal y patológico, así como también los factores de riesgo para la EA. Los tratamientos apropiados de los factores de riesgo y su posible combinación con tratamientos específicos para la EA podrían prolongar el período presintomático de la EA y, por tanto, mejorar la calidad de vida y disminuir la carga para el paciente, la familia y la sociedad.

City of Chicago Brownfield case study  

SciTech Connect

Dealing with complex environmental issues frequently inhibits redevelopment of industrial sites in urban settings. In 1993, the City of Chicago (City) Department of Planning and Development, Department of Buildings, and Mayor`s Office joined the Department of Environment to investigate reuse of former industrial/commercial properties (brownfields) suspected of environmental or industrial contamination. The collective result is the Brownfield Program, a three-pronged initiative: Brownfield Pilot Program, Brownfield Forum, and Brownfield Research. Black and Veatch Waste Science, Inc. (Waste Science) carried the Brownfield Program forward by performing a Phase 1 environmental site assessment for the City on one of five pilot sites. Waste Science subsequently completed a Phase 2 environmental site assessment and Phase 3 site remediation at the site. Waste oil and PCB-contaminated soil was removed.

Volcanic Glass - an Ideal Recording Material?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It has been suggested that volcanic glass is a perfect material for paleomagnetic research, especially for paleointensity studies, as it is often pristine and contains a magnetic fraction in the SD range. Furthermore, all biasing effects which are usually hard or impossible to detect in other recording media, are either absent or can be corrected for by using mineralogical and rock magnetic constraints. To verify this supposed ideal character, silicic volcanic glass from Pantelleria, Italy, from Tenerife, Spain, and from Mayor Island, New Zealand, was analyzed. Paleointensity measurements and rock magnetic experiments were conducted, including determinations of the anisotropy of thermoremanence. Structural properties of volcanic glass, particularly the glass transition and the natural cooling rate across this transition were investigated by relaxation geospeedometry. By additionally determining the magnetic cooling rate dependency of the thermoremanence, a correction of paleointensity data for cooling rate effects could be applied. Samples from Pantelleria and Mayor Island show very low NRM intensities, hampering rock magnetic measurements. Nevertheless, paleointensity results (~40~?T) were obtained for 50% of the Pantelleria samples though the scatter is remarkable (30 to 50~?T). Intensity measurements of almost all Mayor Island samples agree very well and yield a paleointensity of ~55~?T. Anisotropy and cooling rate corrections for Pantelleria and Mayor Island could not be applied. The glass transition of these samples is close to their blocking temperature spectra. Thus, during repeated heating to higher temperature the samples enter the transition interval and alter. The reasons and consequences of this alteration are investigated. NRM intensities are much larger for Tenerife samples. Rock magnetic experiments indicate low Ti- or even pure Magnetite in the SD range. Very high success rates for paleointensity experiments are observed. An application of anisotropy and cooling rate corrections is possible as glass transition temperatures are well above the magnetic blocking temperature. High success rates and well defined paleointensity data, accompanied by the possibility to apply reliability tests and corrections, support the high suitability of silicic volcanic glass for paleomagnetic measurements.

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.

Distribution of fallout and environmental radionuclides in ice-free areas of King George Island (Western Antarctica)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Climate change is progressing at a rate which is several times the global average in Western Antarctica. The Antarctic Peninsula region has experienced a rise of ca. 3°C for surface air temperature over the last 50 years; and 87% of 244 glaciers along the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula have retreated in the last 50 years. Examining the impacts of climate change in Antarctic landscapes, in particular in the soils at the foot of retreating glaciers, can provide a better understanding of the future impacts of climate change on landscape dynamics (including land degradation and resulting changes in land, water and ecosystem quality) in the higher mountainous cold regions of the world. In this paper, results of an exploratory assessment of soil movement and identification of sediment sources and sediment sinks by investigating the distribution of fallout (FRN's) and environmental radionuclides (ERN's) in ice-free areas of King George Island (Western Antarctica) are discussed. This assessment has been carried in the context of an Instituto Antártico Chileno project, and supported by the IAEA Technical Cooperation, studying land degradation in the cold regions of South America. To this purpose soil profiles were sampled at depth increments at three different control sites. In addition, topsoil (0-1 cm depth) samples were collected from areas identified as potential soil sources and from others identified as sinks of sediments. The soil profiles at the control sites showed distinctive patterns in the depth distribution of the FRN's and ERN's. The 137Cs and 210Pbex activity mass concentration (Bq kg-1) were highest in the topsoil and penetration depth was less than 8 and 25 cm, respectively. The depth distribution of 226Ra and 232Th in the soil profiles was quite homogeneous and greater variation was found for 40K and 238U, possibly related to differences in the mineralogical composition of soils. Average mass activity values of 137Cs and 210Pbex at the source areas were significantly lower than those found at sink areas, suggesting that processes of soil movement are relatively important. The knowledge gained with this research provided baseline information to establish future sampling strategies intended to ensure minimal intervention in the environment. Furthermore, the values of the areal activity density (Bq m-2) of 137Cs, 210Pbex and 7Be in soils and sediments proved the potential for using FRN's to study the redistribution of soil and sediments associated to the process of glacier retreat.

UAVSAR and GPS Observations of Crustal Deformation in Southern California and Implications for Earthquake Risk  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 2010 El-Mayor Cucapah earthquake was the first earthquake to be observed with UAVSAR. UAVSAR observations, GPS time series analysis, and simulations suggest that the fault that ruptured in the earthquake is coupled to the Elsinore, San Jacinto, and San Andreas faults to the north. GPS and UAVSAR observations indicate a zone of shear that extends southward from the Big Bend of the San Andreas fault near Gorman through the San Fernando Valley towards the Newport-Inglewood fault. The zone steps over to the region of the Elsinore or San Jacinto faults, though the partitioning of strain between the two faults is not as clear. State changes in GPS time series data fall in line with the shear zone through the San Fernando Valley and extend northward from the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake rupture. Seismicity hotspots also indicate elevated earthquake hazard near the San Fernando Valley and in the Inland Empire near the Elsinore and San Jacinto faults. Inversions of GPS velocity vectors favor a fault underlying the shear zone extending from the Big Bend to the Newport-Inglewood fault over substantial slip on the San Andreas fault under north of Los Angeles. Virtual California simulations of southern California are being analyzed for fault activity associated with the identified shear zone and for subsequent earthquakes that may be related to El Mayor-Cucapah type earthquakes in Baja.

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. PMID:22703525

DUCHAS VAGINALES Y OTROS RIESGOS DE VAGINOSIS BACTERIANA  

PubMed Central

Vaginosis bacteriana (VB) es una infección caracterizada por el cambio en la microflora de la vagina, asociándose a resultados adversos del embarazo y a la adquisición de infecciones de transmisión sexual (ITS), incluyendo el VIH. En este estudio se buscó la asociación entre el uso de duchas vaginales y otros factores de riesgos con VB. Se usó un diseño observacional descriptivo transversal prospectivo, en 1,252 mujeres que asistieron al servicio de planificación familiar de tres hospitales nacionales (Dos de Mayo, Arzobispo Loayza, San Bartolomé) y el Instituto Materno Perinatal, durante el año 1997. Se utilizó un cuestionario estructurado donde se registraron variables socio demográficas y características del estilo de vida de las participantes. VB fue diagnosticada mediante el puntaje de Nugent. Se empleó análisis de regresión logística para calcular odds ratio (OR) e intervalos de confianza al 95%. La edad promedio de las participantes fue 25.1 ± 4,7 años, el 23.4% tenían más de 11 años de educación. La prevalencía de VB fue 20,1%. Las mujeres que practicaban duchas vaginales tuvieron 2.28 veces (OR = 2.28, IC 95% [1.0–5.0]) mayor probabilidad de tener VB comparado con aquellas que no lo practicaban. Tener dos o más parejas sexuales estuvo asociado con 2.0 veces (OR =2.0, IC 95% [1.2–3.5]) mayor probabilidad de adquirir VB comparado con aquellas que habían tenido solo una pareja sexual. Las participantes que iniciaron una relación sexual a una edad temprana tuvieron 1.4 veces (OR=1.4, IC 95% [1.0 –1.9]) mayor probabilidad de adquirir VB. El uso de duchas vaginales es un factor de riesgo de VB. Los programas destinados a la salud de la mujer deben abordar las repercusiones perjudiciales para la salud asociados con las duchas vaginales. PMID:21132048

Gas-exchange patterns of Mediterranean fruit fly Pupae (Diptera: Tephritidae): A tool to forecast developmental stage  

SciTech Connect

The pattern of gas-exchange (CO{sub 2} emission) was investigated for developing Mediterranean fruit fly (medfly) Ceratitis capitata (Wiedemann) pupae incubated at different temperatures. This study was undertaken to explore the usefulness of gas-exchange systems in the determination of physiological age in developing pupae that are mass produced for sterile insect technique projects. The rate of CO{sub 2} emission was measured in a closed flow-through system connected to commercial infrared gas analysis equipment. Metabolic activity (rate of CO{sub 2} emission) was related to pupal eye-color, which is the current technique used to determine physiological age. Eye-color was characterized digitally with 3 variables (Hue, Saturation and Intensity), and color separated by discriminant analysis. The rate of CO{sub 2} emission throughout pupal development followed a U-shape, with high levels of emission during pupariation, pupal transformation and final pharate adult stages. Temperature affected the development time of pupae, but not the basic CO{sub 2} emission patterns during development. In all temperatures, rates of CO{sub 2} emission 1 and 2 d before adult emergence were very similar. After mid larval-adult transition (e.g., phanerocephalic pupa), digital eye-color was significantly correlated with CO{sub 2} emission. Results support the suggestion that gas-exchange should be explored further as a system to determine pupal physiological age in mass production of fruit flies. (author) [Spanish] En el presente estudio se investigaron los patrones de intercambio gaseoso (emision de CO{sub 2}) en pupas de la mosca de las frutas del Mediterraneo (Ceratitis capitata Wiedemann) incubadas a diferentes temperaturas. El estudio fue realizado con la finalidad de explorar la utilizacion de sistemas de intercambio gaseoso en la determinacion de la edad fisiologica de pupas durante su produccion masiva en proyectos de mosca esteril. La proporcion de emision de CO{sub 2} fue medido en un sistema cerrado de 'flujo a traves del sistema' conectado a un detector infrarrojo de gases. La actividad metabolica de la pupa (emision de CO{sub 2}) fue contrastado al color del ojo de la pupa en desarrollo, que constituye la actual tecnica de determinacion de la edad fisiologica. El color de ojos en pupa fue determinado digitalmente, usando tres variables (Tendencia, Saturacion e Intensidad). Los colores fueron separados utilizando el analisis discriminatorio. Los patrones de emision de CO{sub 2} durante el desarrollo de la pupa sugieren una tendencia de U: una alta actividad metabolica durante la fase inicial de pupacion y transformacion y durante la fase final del adulto. La temperatura de incubacion afecto el tiempo de desarrollo pero no el patron basico de actividad metabolica. La proporcion de emision de CO{sub 2} uno y dos dias antes de la emergencia del adulto fue muy similar para pupas mantenidas en las diversas temperaturas. El color digital del ojo de la pupa se correlaciono significativamente con los patrones de emision de CO{sub 2} detectados a partir de la fase media de la transformacion de larva a adulto. Los resultados soportan la utilizacion de sistemas de intercambio gaseoso como un sistema auxiliar para la determinacion de la edad fisiologica en cria masiva de moscas de la fruta. (author)

Investigadores encuentran que el sarcoma en niños aumenta el riesgo de coágulos en la sangre  

Cancer.gov

Investigadores del Instituto Nacional del Cáncer (NCI), un componente de los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud, han determinado que los niños y jóvenes que padecen una forma de cáncer llamada sarcoma tienen mayor riesgo de presentar un episodio de tromboembolia en las venas. Los episodios de tromboembolia pueden deberse a un coágulo de sangre en un vaso sanguíneo que puede interferir con el flujo normal de sangre. La investigación de la relación entre el sarcoma y los episodios de tromboembolia es importante ya que la mayoría de los niños con sarcoma pueden curarse del cáncer, pero la presencia de episodios de tromboembolia podría comprometer en forma adversa el éxito.

Current through single conjugated molecules: calculations versus measurements.  

PubMed

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. PMID:18624557

"This area has been declared a prostitution free zone": discursive formations of space, the state, and trans "sex worker" bodies.  

PubMed

The mayorally instituted and police-enforced Prostitution Free Zones in Washington, DC, serve as a tool of nation-state disciplinarity, wherein many transgender women of color, viewed as ideologically suspect, are profiled as "sex workers," facing police harassment and arrest. This article explores here how this process is not merely about sex work but rather about discourses that are evoked in the displacement of the always-already displaced-racial, sexed, and gendered "others" through interviews with activists and trans community members, as well as District of Columbia government publications.

Induction of sterility in Anastrepha Fraterculus (Diptera: Tephritidae) by gamma radiation  

SciTech Connect

In relation to the application of the sterile insect technique (SIT) for the South American fruit fly Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann), we analyzed the effect on adult fertility of different doses of gamma irradiation and the age of pupae at the time of irradiation. In a first experiment, we applied doses of 50, 70, and 90 Gy to pupae at 24, 48, 72, and 96 h before adult emergence. In a second experiment we irradiated pupae 48 h before emergence with 20, 40, and 60 Gy and estimated male and female fertility and sperm transfer by irradiated males. The results indicated pupal age at irradiation does not significantly affect male fertility. If males irradiated with 60 Gy are crossed to non-irradiated females the fertility is about 1%. Females irradiated with 40 Gy did not lay eggs independently of the male to which they mated. No significant effects of radiation were observed with respect to the ability of males to transfer sperm. A dose of 70 Gy applied 48 h before adult emergence induces 100% sterility in both males and females. (author) [Spanish] Para la aplicacion de la tecnica del insecto esteril (TIE) en Anastrepha fraterculus (Wiedemann), en este trabajo analizamos el efecto de diferentes dosis de irradiacion gamma y la edad optima de la pupa al momento de la irradiacion. En el primer experimento se evaluaron las dosis de 50, 70, y 90 Gy en pupas de 24, 48, 72, y 96 h antes de la emergencia del adulto. En el segundo experimento se irradiaron pupas 48 h antes de la emergencia con dosis de 20, 40, 60 Gy y se estimo la fertilidad de los machos y las hembras, y la transferencia de espermas por los machos irradiados. Los resultados indicaron que la irradiacion no modifico significativamente la fertilidad de los machos. En las cruzas de machos irradiados a 60 Gy con hembras no irradiadas se observo 1% de eclosion larvaria, mientras que las hembras irradiadas a 40 Gy no pusieron huevos. La irradiacion no afecto significativamente la transferencia de espermas de los machos tratados. Por lo tanto, una dosis de 70 Gy aplicada 48 h antes de la emergencia del adulto induce 100% de esterilidad tanto en machos como en hembras. (a0011uth.

Mini-mastoidectomía para anastomosis hipogloso-facial con sección parcial del nervio hipogloso  

PubMed Central

Introducción: La anastomosis hipogloso-facial es la técnica de elección para la reparación de la parálisis facial cuando no se dispone de un cabo proximal sano del nervio facial. La técnica de anastomosis mediante fresado mastoideo y sección parcial del hipogloso minimiza la atrofia lingual sin sacrificar resultados a nivel facial. Método: La porción mastoidea del nervio facial transcurre por la pared anterior de la AM, a un promedio de 18+/-3 mm de profundidad respecto de la pared lateral. Se debe reconocer la cresta supramastoidea, desde la cual se marca una línea vertical paralela al eje mayor de la AM, 1 cm por detrás de la pared posterior del CAE El fresado se comienza desde la línea medio mastoidea hasta la pared posterior del CAE. Una vez encontrado el nervio facial en el tercio medio del canal mastoideo, el mismo es seguido hacia proximal y distal. Resultados: El abordaje descripto permite acceder al nervio facial intratemporal en su porción mastoidea, y efectuar un fresado óseo sin poner en riesgo al nervio o a estructuras vasculares cercanas. Se trata de un procedimiento técnicamente más sencillo que los abordajes amplios habitualmente utilizados al hueso temporal; no obstante su uso debe ser restringido mayormente a la anastomosis hipogloso-facial. Conclusión: Esta es una técnica relativamente sencilla, que puede ser reproducida por cirujanos sin mayor experiencia en el tema, luego de su paso por el laboratorio de anatomía. PMID:23596555

Emerging techniques to quantify 3D ground deformation using high resolution optical imagery and multi-temporal LiDAR  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We demonstrate how 3D ground deformations, involving different types of geomorphological processes, can be recovered using three different techniques. First, we focus on the availability of high resolution imagery such as provided by the Quickbird or Worldview satellites, to reconstruct the 3D displacement field induced by the 2010 El-Mayor Cucapah earthquake. Full-field ground deformation is recovered using sub-pixel image matching and triangulation on a set of images acquired before the earthquake, and on a set of images acquired after the earthquake. This technique is implicitly equivalent to reconstructing two elevation models, before and after the earthquake, using stereoscopy, and matching them. Second, we show that the ground deformation recovered for the El-Mayor Cucapah earthquake using multi-angle and multitemporal optical imagery can also be recovered using image correlation techniques applied to gridded LiDAR data. However, we also show that image correlation techniques applied to LiDAR data fail when the topography to be analyzed is too smooth, as is often the case on sand dunes. Therefore, we finally introduce a point-cloud matching technique based on the Free Form Deformation (FFD) framework, which delivers promising results even when applied to smooth and poorly textured LiDAR data. In particular, we study a time series of LiDAR data acquired above the White Sand Dunes, NM, and we derive their migration field from 2007 to 2010.

Terrestrial planet formation in binary star systems with a giant planet  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Planet formation in binary stars is a highly topical area of the present-day astrophysics, since about 60% of stars born as a member of a binary system (Duquennoy & Mayor 1991). According to Raghavan et al. (2010), both single and multiple stars are equally likely harboring planets. The reason of this is that the majority of binaries have large separations, therefore the planet formation might only slightly be influenced by the companion's gravitational perturbation. This is not true in the case of the few giant planets formed in binary systems with mid separations (~ 20 AU), whose best known representative is Gamma Cephei (Campbell et al. 1988, Hatzes et al. 2003). In our research we investigate the late stage of terrestrial planet formation around the more massive star in binary systems. We consider a swarm of isolated planetary embryos, and study their final assembly via N-body simulations with and without the presence of an already formed Jupiter-like giant planet. Our results suggest that the gravitational effects of a giant planet may help planet formation.

RESUMO Este estudo comparou o desempenho de crianças bilíngues bimodais ouvintes (filhas de pais surdos) e crianças surdas usuárias de implante coclear (filhas de pais surdos e de pais ouvintes), com diferentes contextos de acesso à Língua Brasileira de Sinais (Libras), em tarefas que envolvem memória fonologica. Os testes utilizados foram: Teste de Pseudopalavras (Santos e Bueno, 2003) e Teste de Pseudosinais (desenvolvido pelos pesquisadores responsáveis pelo Projeto ‘Desenvolvimento Bilíngue Bimoda’). Além disso, foram incluídos dois grupos de controle, formados por crianças surdas (usuarias de Libras), e adultos bilíngues bimodais ouvintes. Na análise dos resultados, em relação ao desempenho entre os dois grupos testados foi constatado que o grupo de crianças bilíngues bimodais ouvintes apresentou desempenho superior, nos dois testes. No entanto, ao ser analisado o desempenho da criança surda usuaria de implante coclear, filha de pais surdos, que possui acesso irrestrito à Libras e comparado com o das crianças surdas usuárias de implante coclear, que possuem acesso restrito à Libras, foi constatado que o seu desempenho foi semelhante ao do grupo de crianças bilíngues bimodais ouvintes. As crianças surdas usuárias de implante coclear com acesso restrito à Libras e, portanto, com acesso maior ao Português apresentaram escores mais baixos nas tarefas, principalmente do teste em Português. Os resultados sugerem que as crianças surdas usuárias de implante coclear em processo de aquisição da línguagem podem se beneficiar com o acesso irrestrito à Libras, atingindo inclusive desempenho semelhante a de crianças bilíngues bimodais ouvintes.

We conducted a phase II, noncomparative, open-label, multicenter GIMEMA (Gruppo Italiano Malattie EMatologiche dell'Adulto) study (CLL0809) to assess the efficacy and safety of bendamustine in combination with ofatumumab (BendOfa) in relapsed/refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Forty-seven patients from 14 centers were evaluated. Therapy consisted of bendamustine (70 mg/m(2)) for 2 consecutive days every 28 days, and ofatumumab 300 mg on day 1 and 1000 mg on day 8 during the first cycle, and 1000 mg on day 1 subsequently. Treatment was administered up to six cycles. The overall response rate (ORR), as per intention-to-treat analysis, was 72.3% (95% confidence of interval (CI), 57-84%), with 17% complete responses. After a median follow-up of 24.2 months, the overall survival was 83.6% (95% CI, 73.0-95.7%) and the progression-free survival (PFS) was 49.6% (95% CI, 35.9-68.6%). The median PFS was 23.6 months. Univariate and multivariate analyses were used to identify clinical and biological characteristics associated with ORR and PFS. Myelosuppression was the most common toxicity; grade ?3 neutropenia was observed in 61.7% of patients; however, grade ?3 infections occurred in 6% of patients. BendOfa is feasible and effective in relapsed/refractory CLL patients, including patients with high-risk clinical and biological features. PMID:24220274

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

Role of bacteria isolates in the spoilage of fermented African oil bean seed ugba.  

PubMed

Study was carried out to determine the spoilage association of traditionally fermented ugba, product of African oil bean seed. Samples were collected from three markets within Enugu metropolis in Eastern Nigeria. Microbial population of ugba was isolated, characterized and identified. Effect of time on product quality, total viable cell count and individual growth pattern of isolates was evaluated. Microorganisms isolated were Proteus sp., Klebsiella sp., Staphylococcus epidermidis, E. coli, Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus subtilis. Initial viable cell count increased from 4.6 x 10(8) -6.2 x 10(8), 6.0 x 10(9) -6.9 x 10(9) and 3.9 x 10(8) -5 x 10(8) cfu g(-1) by the 4th day for samples from Mayor, Kenyatta and Garki markets, respectively. Organoleptic changes in texture and colour were seen to be a factor of time of storage. A decline in growth of Proteus sp., E. coli, Klebsiella sp. and S. epidermidis by the 4th day of storage was observed for all samples. Viable cells of B. licheniformis increased from 6.1 x 10(7) -17.7 x 10(7) cfu g(-1), 13.9 x 10(8) -20.0 x 10(8) and 8.7 x 10(7) -15.5 x 10(7) by the 4th day of storage for samples from Mayor, Kenyatta and Garki markets respectively. Growth of B. subtilis increased from 9.2 x 10(7) -19.9 x 10(7), 14.9 x 10(8) -21.2 x 10(8) and 11.5 x 10(7) -17.2 x 10(7) cfu g(-1) for samples from Mayor, Kenyatta and Garki markets respectively. Our results indicate that ugba spoilage is primarily a result of the continued activity of African oil bean seed fermentative organisms B. subtilis and B. licheniformis. PMID:21848074

Floods of March 1978, in the Maumee River basin, northeastern Indiana  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Floods in the Maumee River basin in northeastern Indiana in March 1978 resulted in heavy damage in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas. Flood damage in Fort Wayne was estimated by the Mayor to be 11 million dollars. Approximately 15 percent of the city was inundated, and 2,400 of its 190,000 residents were forced to leave their homes. The estimate of damage in Adams and Allen Counties by Civil Defense officials was 44 million dollars. The Maumee River at New Haven exceeded the peak stage of record, 21.4 feet, by 2.2 feet. The peak discharge at this stream-gaging station, 22,400 cubic feet per second, was about equal to that of a 75-year flood. Recurrence intervals of peak flows on streams tributary to the Maumee River ranged from 5 to 50 years. Records of peak and daily discharges and some precipitation data are given in this report.

[Perioperatory artificial nutrition].  

PubMed

Malnutrition increases post surgical morbimortality, hospital stance and economical costs. Possibilities of nutritional intervention in surgical patients are important. Early enteral nutrition is better than total parenteral nutrition in patients under surgery. Periroperaoty nutritional support must be administrated to patients with severe or middle undernutrition and will be under surgery, during 7-14 days before surgical intervention, if this intervention could be delayed. Total parenteral nutrition will be not used regularly in patients under mayor digestive surgical procedures. Inmunonutrition has been demonstrated useful in surgical patients. Evidence demonstrates that inmunotritional formulas decrease incidence of infections, hospital stance and time of ventilation in patients in UCI wards. New research areas have been explored in this topic area, carbohydrate utility in presurgical patients and probiotic in enteral formulas. PMID:19295980

Search for Planets Companion to Late G-type Giant Stars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The searching for `other worlds' is one of the oldest well known scientific questions. With the first discovery of planets around the pulsar PSR1257+12 (Wolszczan & Frail 1992) and the main sequence star 51 Peg (Mayor & Queloz 1995), a new field of astronomy has been opened. Most of the planets have been found around main-sequence solar-mass stars. However in this investigation, we present our plan to search for planets around intermediate-mass late G type giant stars (1.5 - 3Msolar) with cooperation with Japanese astronomers and give the preliminary results of this research. A long-term monitoring of the Doppler velocities of stars will be carried out with mid-size telescopes at Okayama (Japan) and Xinglong (China).

Battle in Seattle  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The World Trade Organization (WTO) Third Ministerial Conference commenced in Seattle, WA, on Tuesday, November 31 at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center. Inside the center, conference delegates, trade officials, and lobbyists, representing 135 countries, started a three-year series of negotiations about global trade-liberalization. Outside the center, close to 40,000 anti-trade protestors lined the city's streets. In an attempt to clear the streets of demonstrators who were blocking access to meeting venues, Seattle Mayor Paul Schell declared a state of emergency as police in riot gear fired rubber bullets, red pepper spray, and tear gas into the sea of protestors. Demonstrators believe global trade regulations proposed by the WTO will ultimately exploit workers in developing countries and will not take into account environmental issues. President Clinton was scheduled to address ministers on Wednesday, but instead he chose to survey the damage in the downtown area caused by a small faction of rioting protestors.

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.

Corporate America urges consumers to buy recycled  

SciTech Connect

The National Recycling Coalition`s (NRC, Washington, DC) buy Recycled Business Alliance (BRBA), the US EPA`s WasteWi$e program, and the US Conference of Mayors` (Washington, DC) buy-recycled program are just a few of the national groups that have formed since 1990 to encourage the purchase of products made from recyclables. Indeed, corporate America and governments are buying recycled. More than $1 billion worth of recycled-content products have been bought by McDonald`s Corp. since 1990. The nearly 950 members of the BRBA reported spending $9.1 billion on recycled-content products in 1993. State governments reported in 1993 that they had spent more than $600 million on recycled products. Several states, cities, and counties have adopted buy-recycled executive orders. Now, many of these companies and government officials are urging consumers to use their own purchasing power to spur markets for recyclables.

Jury sees racial bias in Philadelphia's top AIDS agency.  

PubMed

The former director of Philadelphia's AIDS Activities Coordinating Office was found guilty of violating the civil rights of four employees by denying them promotions or stripping them of responsibilities because of their race. A Federal jury determined that [name removed], who directed the office from 1993 to 1994, passed over African American employees in favor of less-qualified whites during an agency reorganization. The jury awarded a total of $26,000 to the four employees; both sides plan an appeal. Witnesses described the agency as racially polarized, dysfunctional, and chaotic. Some African American AIDS leaders in Philadelphia have called for [name removed]'s resignation as the chief of staff to Health Commissioner Estelle Richman. Mayor Edward Rendell said that [name removed] will remain employed but did not rule out disciplinary action. PMID:11364404

Bruno Rossi: Cosmic Ray Research 1929 - 1953  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Bruno Rossi, a fresh PhD from the University of Bologna, arrived in Florence in 1928. He was appointed assistant to Antonio Garbasso, professor of experimental physics. Garbosso at that time was Mayor of Florence. His days of physics were over which gave the young Rossi a freedom to follow any line of research. After some agonizing he came upon research in cosmic rays following the discovery that a large part of the cosmic rays were charged particles. Thus began a long period of creative research. Rossi had all the talents needed, a powerful intellect and the natural ability to construct apparatus that gave clear results for his experiments. I will give some examples of his many discoveries concerning the nature of cosmic rays.

LAPD to be Policed  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Yesterday, the mayor of Los Angeles, Richard Riordan, reluctantly agreed to allow an outside monitor to oversee the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for the next five years rather than face the federal civil rights lawsuit threatened by the Department of Justice (DoJ). The consent decree is the latest development in what has come to be known as "the Rampart scandal," a corruption scandal that came to light last September when officer Rafael Perez gave testimony against the police as part of a plea bargain. Since then, more than 100 criminal convictions have been overturned, thousands more are still being looked at, and over 70 police officers are being investigated. The first corruption trial against four LAPD officers may draw to a close as early as next week, and meanwhile, some have raised new criticism against the department after the recent fatal shooting of actor Anthony Lee at a Halloween party.

[Prehospital treatment of polytrauma patients by emergency physicians].  

PubMed

Even in the 21st century major trauma still contributes to a svere loss of life in our society. Severly injured victims benefit from prehospital care that both considers tactical and medical aims. Knowledge of major trauma care has grown over the past years. The 2011 german guidelines on multiple- and severe trauma care set a milestone for better treatment of these patients. Trauma courses do not only teach theoretical knowledge but do also train participants in skills. By putting up the new structure of german traumacenters involving certified trauma hospitals it is easier for ambulance doctors to find the best hospital for their patient. Thought has been given to nearly al organ systems and body-areas in the guidelines making them a very usefull orientation guide for prehospital care. Emergency anesthesie including intubation is a mayor issue of the new guidelines. PMID:23235902

Why 400 Years to Discover Countless Planets?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In 1584, Dominican monk Giordano Bruno envisioned the stars as "countless suns with countless earths, all rotating around their suns." Searching for intellectual freedom, he fled his native Italy to Protestant Switzerland and Germany, but in 1600 the Roman Inquisition condemned him for heresy. He was burned at the stake. Fast-forwarding to 1995, the Swiss astronomers Michel Mayor and Didier Queloz announced the discovery of a planet orbiting a star similar to our sun (51 Pegasi). In 2010, 500 planets had been found orbiting 421 stars. On Feb 2, 2011, NASA announced 1200 planet candidates. It took 400 years for telescope technology to advance and for Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Bradley, and Foucault to make major contributions, culminating in today's astrophysics with digital imaging and processing. Contrasting with Bruno, in 2010 Dominican Francisco Ayala, who had been president of the Sigma Xi and AAAS, won the 1.6M Templeton Prize for affirming life's spiritual dimension.

Recommendations on the proposed Monitored Retrievable Storage Facility  

SciTech Connect

Following the Department of Energy's announcement in April 1985 that three Tennessee sites were to be considered for the Monitored Retrievable Storage facility, Governor Lamar Alexander initiated a review of the proposal to be coordinated by his Safe Growth Team. Roane County and the City of Oak Ridge, the local governments sharing jurisdiction over DOE's primary and secondary sites, were invited to participate in the state's review of the MRS proposal. Many issues related to the proposed MRS are being considered by the Governor's Safe Growth Team. The primary objective of the Clinch River MRS Task Force has been to determine whether the proposed Monitored Retrievable Storage facility should be accepted by the local governments, and if so, under what conditions. The Clinch River MRS Task Force is organized into an Executive Committee cochaired by the Roane County Executive and Mayor of Oak Ridge and three Study Groups focusing on environmental (including health and safety), socioeconomic, and transportation issues.

Agave turneri (Agavaceae), a new species from northeastern Baja California, Mexico  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Agave turneri, a new species of Agave from the Sierras Cucapá and El Mayor in northeastern Baja California, Mexico, is a medium-sized species that does not produce offsets, has a relatively short and narrow panicle, and has a distinctive flower structure. The closest relatives to this new species are Agave moranii, which occurs approximately 200 km to the south of the type locality, and A. deserti var. simplex, which occurs in Arizona and California. This new species is a narrow endemic restricted to specific granodiorite and tonalite habitats in a hyperarid environment. Agave turneri appears to be a critically endangered owing to its habitat preference for specific types of granite in the Sierra Cucapá, threats due to prolonged drought and global change, and its close proximity to the Mexicali metropolitan area.

Such superficial improvements definitely wonâÂÂt pass muster these days with concerned parents, local school boards, and other groups clamoring for systemic changes within all levels of the American education system. The New York public school system, with its 1.1 million students, is one of those systems undergoing such changes as Mayor Michael Bloomberg continues to cut the number of bureaucrats in the school system and push for the adoption of greater accountability measures. The same process is underway in the Los Angeles Unified School District, where legislation passed in Sacramento last week gave Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa additional power to assume greater responsibility for the future success of this troubled school system. Along with the K-12 set, college students have also returned to campuses across the country to find new support tools in place, such as enhanced writing centers, âÂÂwellnessâÂÂ-themed dorms, and at some select institutions, a renewed attention on undergraduate education. With all the changes going on, it may make some wistful commentators pine for the days when a lone teacher in front of a chalkboard dominated classrooms. Or in terms of the college experience, it may have been President James A. Garfield who said it best when (in referring to Mark Hopkins, the president of Williams College) he opined âÂÂThe ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other.â The first link will take interested parties to a piece from this TuesdayâÂÂs New York Times which reports on the transformations within the New York public school system as of late. Moving on to the second link, readers can read an editorial from the Los Angeles Times that addresses the mayorâÂÂs responsibility to the school district and Angelinos in general. The third link leads to a piece written by Boston Globe staff member Marcella Bombardieri on Harvard UniversityâÂÂs new initiative that seeks to improve the teaching of undergraduates. The fourth link is more than a bit fun, as it leads visitors down the primrose path to the annual Beloit College Mindset List. Essentially the list serves as a reminder to professors and others about what their entering freshmen may (or may not) be familiar in terms of cultural touchstones, historic events, and so on. Item 51 on the list is rather amusing, as it reads: âÂÂMichael Moore has always been showing up uninvited.â The fifth link will take users to a set of resources created by the National Education Association for parents who want to get involved with their childâÂÂs education. Included on the site are two new parent guides that will help ease the preschoolerâÂÂs transition to kindergarten.

THE FREQUENCY OF HOT JUPITERS ORBITING NEARBY SOLAR-TYPE STARS  

SciTech Connect

We determine the fraction of F, G, and K dwarfs in the solar neighborhood hosting hot Jupiters as measured by the California Planet Survey from the Lick and Keck planet searches. We find the rate to be 1.2% {+-} 0.38%, which is consistent with the rate reported by Mayor et al. from the HARPS and CORALIE radial velocity (RV) surveys. These numbers are more than double the rate reported by Howard et al. for Kepler stars and the rate of Gould et al. from the OGLE-III transit search; however, due to small number statistics these differences are of only marginal statistical significance. We explore some of the difficulties in estimating this rate from the existing RV data sets and comparing RV rates to rates from other techniques.

Tactical voting in plurality elections.  

PubMed

How often will elections end in landslides? What is the probability for a head-to-head race? Analyzing ballot results from several large countries rather anomalous and yet unexplained distributions have been observed. We identify tactical voting as the driving ingredient for the anomalies and introduce a model to study its effect on plurality elections, characterized by the relative strength of the feedback from polls and the pairwise interaction between individuals in the society. With this model it becomes possible to explain the polarization of votes between two candidates, understand the small margin of victories frequently observed for different elections, and analyze the polls' impact in American, Canadian, and Brazilian ballots. Moreover, the model reproduces, quantitatively, the distribution of votes obtained in the Brazilian mayor elections with two, three, and four candidates. PMID:20856800

Design and construction of the structure of the DEMONSTRATOR of the CALIFA detector for R3B-FAIR using carbon-fiber composites  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper we describe the DEMONSTRATOR structures and active units (PETALs) developed for the detector CALIFA of the experiment R3B - FAIR. The design is based in the CALIFA BARREL mechanical solutions, but adapted to the characteristics of the PETALs, namely in what concerns the load distribution during setup and service. The R&D program defined the materials and procedures for both producing the pieces of carbon fiber (CF) composites as well as the mounting of the bundles to make an alveolar structure. The procedures also include a quality control program to ensure the dimensional properties of the CF assemblies. We are also developing the use of tomographic imaging analysis for this quality program, that will be of mayor interest in the construction of the future CALIFA CF-structure.

[The beginnings of vaccine diffusion in France (1800-1850)].  

PubMed

First factor of mortality at the eighteenth century, smallpox killed each year about 50.000 to 80.000 people in France and 25.000 to 30.000 in England. In 1796, Edward Jenner discovered the fabulous properties of the cowpox which, transplanted from cow to human, immunized against the disease. In France, between 1800 and 1850, a few hundreds of vaccinators took part in a significant crusade against smallpox. They went in the villages and the thatched cottages, fought against the routine, and, sometimes, against the hostility of the mayors or the priests. Moreover, the cow-pox often missed or lost its strength. Despite everything, their efforts were crowned success: during the nineteenth century, small-pox mortality drops by 90%. PMID:11503362

Astrobiology And Extrasolar Planets- A New Lecture Course At Potsdam University  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Astrobiology studies the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life on Earth and in the Universe. This addresses a very wide range of questions that have been asked by mankind from the beginning. On the other hand, the discovery of the first extrasolar planet orbiting a Sun-like star by Mayor and Queloz in 1995 opened a new area for astrobiological research. Although most of the newly discovered extrasolar planets are giants with no underlying solid surfaces or oceans that could support a biosphere, the distribution of masses lets scientists suppose that there must be a multitude of planets with lower masses, including Earth-mass planets. The lecture course contains the following topics: Survey about Extrasolar Planets, Detection Methods, Simple Earth System Models, Dynamical Earth System Models, Habitable Zones, Dynamical Habitability, Rare Earth Hypothesis, Drake Formula, Panspermia, Origin of Life, Cambrian Explosion, Impacts and Climate, Long-Term Future Scenarios, Future Space Missions.

Low-mass Objects in Moving Groups  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present here the kinematic study of part of a 132 target sample of low-mass objects, previously selected by photometric and astrometric criteria as possible members to five young moving groups (MGs): Local Association (Pleiades moving group, 20 - 150 Myr), Ursa Mayor group (Sirius supercluster, 300 Myr), Hyades supercluster (600 Myr), IC 2391 supercluster (35 Myr) and Castor moving group (200 Myr). We calculated their kinematic galactic components (U,V,W) and apply simple kinematic criteria of membership. The confirmed members will provide a new and substantial population of age and metallicity benchmark ultra cool dwarfs (UCDs). This will give a valuable set to test atmosphere and evolutionary models of ages below 1 Gyr and suitable targets for use in adaptive optic (AO) imaging to search for sub-stellar companions/exoplanets.

Products and Services Available from the Southern California Earthquake Data Center (SCEDC) and the Southern California Seismic Network (SCSN)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Currently the SCEDC archives continuous and triggered data from nearly 5000 data channels from 425 SCSN recorded stations, processing and archiving an average of 12,000 earthquakes each year. The SCEDC provides public access to these earthquake parametric and waveform data through its website www.data.scec.org and through client applications such as STP and DHI. This poster will describe the most significant developments at the SCEDC in the past year. Updated hardware: ? The SCEDC has more than doubled its waveform file storage capacity by migrating to 2 TB disks. New data holdings: ? Waveform data: Beginning Jan 1, 2010 the SCEDC began continuously archiving all high-sample-rate strong-motion channels. All seismic channels recorded by SCSN are now continuously archived and available at SCEDC. ? Portable data from El Mayor Cucapah 7.2 sequence: Seismic waveforms from portable stations installed by researchers (contributed by Elizabeth Cochran, Jamie Steidl, and Octavio Lazaro-Mancilla) have been added to the archive and are accessible through STP either as continuous data or associated with events in the SCEDC earthquake catalog. This additional data will help SCSN analysts and researchers improve event locations from the sequence. ? Real time GPS solutions from El Mayor Cucapah 7.2 event: Three component 1Hz seismograms of California Real Time Network (CRTN) GPS stations, from the April 4, 2010, magnitude 7.2 El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake are available in SAC format at the SCEDC. These time series were created by Brendan Crowell, Yehuda Bock, the project PI, and Mindy Squibb at SOPAC using data from the CRTN. The El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake demonstrated definitively the power of real-time high-rate GPS data: they measure dynamic displacements directly, they do not clip and they are also able to detect the permanent (coseismic) surface deformation. ? Triggered data from the Quake Catcher Network (QCN) and Community Seismic Network (CSN): The SCEDC in cooperation with QCN and CSN is exploring ways to archive and distribute data from high density low cost networks. As a starting point the SCEDC will store a dataset from QCN and CSN and distribute it through a separate STP client. New archival methods: ? The SCEDC is exploring the feasibility of archiving and distributing waveform data using cloud computing such as Google Apps. A month of continuous data from the SCEDC archive will be stored in Google Apps and a client developed to access it in a manner similar to STP. XML formats: ? The SCEDC is now distributing earthquake parameter data through web services in QuakeML format. ? The SCEDC in collaboration with the Northern California Earthquake Data Center (NCEDC) and USGS Golden has reviewed and revised the StationXML format to produce version 2.0. The new version includes a rules on extending the schema, use of named complex types, and greater consistency in naming conventions. Based on this work we plan to develop readers and writers of the StationXML format.

The pioneering use of a questionnaire to investigate a food borne disease outbreak in early 20th century Britain.  

PubMed

This paper describes the investigation by a British local government board inspector in 1902, H Timbrell Bulstrode, into the cause of an outbreak of enteric fever after a mayoral banquet given at Winchester. This investigation helped to confirm the role of oysters as an agent of transmission of typhoid fever. The data are also reanalysed using a modern approach, which confirmed the role of oysters (odds ratio = 11.2, 95% CI 2.5 to 50.1). This episode is illustrative of the role of British public health inspectors at the turn of the 20th century as well as of the conditions in which the technique of investigating outbreaks of food borne diseases using a standardised menu was developed. Current methods of outbreak investigations that differ from Bulstrode's pioneering work are also discussed. PMID:15650138

Engineering fructan metabolism in plants.  

PubMed

Fructans, or polyfructosylsucroses, are storage carbohydrates present in many higher plants. They are also considered healthy food ingredients. Engineering crops into high level production of specific fructan molecules is one of the mayor strategic research goals. Understanding the properties of fructosyltransferases is important, in order to direct the synthesis of fructans. In plants at least two fructosyltransferases are needed to synthesise fructans. One enzyme synthesises the fructan trisaccharide 1-kestose, the next enzyme uses 1-kestose for elongation and/or modification, producing longer fructans. The specificity of fructosyltransferases determines the type of glycosidic bond formed and the donor and acceptor substrates used. This enables the synthesis of many structurally diverse fructans. The production of these molecules in crops such as sugar beet and potato makes the commercial use of fructans feasible. PMID:12940548

La revisión del estudio de prevención de cáncer de próstata indica no haber beneficio del uso de suplementos de selenio y de vitamina E  

Cancer.gov

La revisión inicial, independiente, de los datos del estudio SELECT, sigla en inglés del Estudio del Selenio y la Vitamina E para Prevenir el Cáncer, financiado por el Instituto Nacional del Cáncer (NCI) y otros institutos que comprenden los Institutos Nacionales de la Salud (NIH), indica que los suplementos de selenio y de vitamina E, tomados juntos o por separado, no impiden el cáncer de próstata. Los datos indicaron también dos tendencias preocupantes: un pequeño aumento aunque no significativo estadísticamente en el número de casos de cáncer de próstata entre los más de 35 000 hombres de 50 años y mayores en el estudio que tomaron sólo vitamina E, y un aumento pequeño aunque no significativo estadísticamente en el número de casos de diabetes de aparición en edad adulta en los hombres que tomaron sólo el selenio.

Optimization of legacy lidar data sets for measuring near-field earthquake displacements  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

lidar (light detection and ranging) topography, acquired before and after an earthquake, can provide an estimate of the coseismic surface displacement field by differencing the preevent and postevent lidar point clouds. However, estimated displacements can be contaminated by the presence of large systematic errors in either of the point clouds. We present three-dimensional displacements obtained by differencing airborne lidar point clouds collected before and after the El Mayor-Cucapah earthquake, a Mw 7.2 earthquake that occurred in 2010. The original surface displacement estimates contained large, periodic artifacts caused by systematic errors in the preevent lidar data. Reprocessing the preevent data, detailed herein, removed a majority of these systematic errors that were largely due to misalignment between the scanning mirror and the outgoing laser beam. The methodology presented can be applied to other legacy airborne laser scanning data sets in order to improve change estimates from temporally spaced lidar acquisitions.
