Distribution and variability of fecal-indicator bacteria in Scioto and Olentangy rivers in the Columbus, Ohio, area  

USGS Publications Warehouse

This report presents the results of a study by the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the City of Columbus, Ohio, to determine the distribution and variability of fecal-indicator bacteria in Scioto and Olentangy Rivers. Fecal-indicator bacteria are among the contaminants of concern to recreational users of these rivers in the Columbus area. Samples were collected to be analyzed for fecal-coliform and Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria and selected water-quality constituents and physical properties at 10 sites-- 4 on the Olentangy River and 6 on the Scioto River during the recreational seasons in 1987, 1988, and 1989. Measurements of streamflow also were made at these sites at various frequencies during base flow and runoff. The concentrations of fecal-coliform and E. coli bacteria in the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers spanned a range of five orders of magnitude, from less than 20 to greater than 2,000,000 col/100 mL (colonies per 100 milliliters). In addition, the concentrations of fecal coliform and E. coli bacteria are well correlated (r=0.97) in the study area. At times, relatively high concentrations, for fecal-indicator bacteria (concentrations greater than 51,000 col/100 mL for fecal-coliform and E. coli ) were found in Olentangy River at Woody Hayes Drive and at Goodale Street, and in Scioto River at Greenlawn Avenue and at Columbus. Intermediate concentrations of fecal-indicator bacteria (from 5,100 to 50,000 col/100 mL for fecal coliform and (from 510 to 50,000 col/100 mL for E. coli ) were found in Scioto River at Town Street and below O'Shaughnessy Dam near Dublin, Ohio, and in Olentangy River at Henderson Road. The lowest (median) concentrations of fecal-indicator bacteria (from 20 to 5,000 col/100 mL for fecal coliform and from 20 to 500 col/100 mL for E. coli ) were found at Olentangy River near Worthington, Ohio, Scioto River at Dublin Road Water Treatment Plant and below Griggs Reservoir. Fecal-coliform concentrations exceeded the geometric mean and single-sample Ohio Water Quality Standards for recreation less frequently than E. coli concentrations. The E. coli numerical water-quality standards are more difficult to meet than the fecal coliform standards because they are as much as an order of magnitude lower in some instances. The geometric mean bathing-water and primary-contact standards for fecal-coliform and E. coli bacteria were exceeded in more samples for Olentangy River at Goodale Street than for any other site. The single-sample bathing-water standard for fecal-coliform bacteria was exceeded in 83 percent of all samples and for E. coli in 91 percent of samples for Olentangy River at Goodale Street. Compared to Olentangy River at Goodale Street, geometric means and single-samples exceeded the bathing-water standards somewhat less frequently for Scioto River at Town Street and far less frequently for Scioto River at Dublin Road Water Treatment Plant. In contrast to results for fecal-indicator bacteria, the differences between sites for pH and for concentrations for total alkalinity, total chloride, total nonfilterable residue, total nitrate plus nitrite as nitrogen, total phosphorus, and total organic carbon were small. The large contribution of streamflow and discharge of fecal-indicator bacteria from Olentangy River to Scioto River has a major effect on the Scioto River downstream from the confluence of Olentangy River during periods of rainfall and runoff. Fecal-indicator discharges were calculated for times before, during, and at 24-hour intervals for 48 to 72 hours after two runoff-producing storms. Fecal-coliform and E. coli concentrations were lower in samples collected before runoff and during receding streamflows at 24- to 48-hours after the storms than in samples collected during runoff. The fecal-indicator discharges entering Scioto River from Olentangy River ranged from 22.6 to nearly 100 percent of the total for two storms studied. Controlling nonpoint, unregulated,

Installation-restoration program field-investigation report, hazardous-waste storage area, Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base, Columbus, Ohio. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The Rickenbacker Air National Guard Base is located 12 miles southeast of Columbus, Ohio. Engineering Science was contracted to perform an environmental field investigation at the hazardous waste storage area (HWSA) located on the base. Portions of the HWSA have been used over the past 42 years for the storage of waste oils, waste fuels, deicing fluid and various solvents and cleaners. The materials stored at the HWSA were contained in either storage drums, or in the four 25,000 gallon underground storage tanks. The purpose of the investigation was to determine if the soil or ground water beneath the site have been contaminated due to spills or leak from the on-site storage. Contamination was confirmed at the site and additional investigations were recommended to define the lateral and vertical extent and magnitude of contamination.

Columbus payload user requirements - Technology  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In-orbit demonstration plays an important role in the assessment of new technologies: provided that the technology has reached an adequate level of maturity and the mission can meet all the payload requirements a well conceived flight experiment increases the confidence in the technology and reduces the risk in future applications. The Columbus Precursor Flights Programme offers flight opportunities for in-orbit testing and qualification of new technologies. An overview of the users' requirements for the selected payloads in the advanced technology discipline is presented; for each experiment, the validity of the in-orbit demonstration and the adequacy Of the Columbus Precursor Flight mission are discussed. Based on the information from the Columbus Precursor Flight Programme and in the frame of the ESA In-Orbit Technology Demonstration Programme, the physical, operational and programmatic requirements for effective in-orbit testing and qualification are derived.

Columbus service vehicle and derivatives  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When Columbus phase B1 started in early 1985 the Service Vehicle (SV) was one of the four candidate elements to be developed by Europe in the frame of the U.S. Space Station program. The present paper will briefly summarize the main results achieved on the SV after phase B1 completion. It will also provide data on some SV derivatives which are currently under study, and particularly one resulting actually from an adaptation of this SV to a more European autonomous environment relying exclusively upon the use of Ariane and Hermes launchers: the so-called Ariane Transfer Vehicle (ATV). An other derivative is an answer to the manned space interventions issue, an intermediate concept betwen a manned SV and an astronaut with its ancilliary devices (e.g. Manned Maneuvering Unit).

COLUMBUS as Engineering Testbed for Communications and Multimedia Equipment  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The paper presents ongoing activities to prepare COLUMBUS for communications and multimedia technology experiments. For this purpose, Astrium SI, Bremen, has studied several options how to best combine the given system architecture with flexible and state-of-the-art interface avionics and software. These activities have been conducted in coordination with, and partially under contract of, DLR and ESA/ESTEC. Moreover, Astrium SI has realized three testbeds for multimedia software and hardware testing under own funding. The experimental core avionics unit - about a half double rack - establishes the core of a new multi-user experiment facility for this type of investigation onboard COLUMBUS, which shall be available to all users of COLUMBUS. It allows for the connection of 2nd generation payload, that is payload requiring broadband data transfer and near-real-time access by the Principal Investigator on ground, to test highly interactive and near-realtime payload operation. The facility is also foreseen to test new equipment to provide the astronauts onboard the ISS/COLUMBUS with bi- directional hi-fi voice and video connectivity to ground, private voice coms and e-mail, and a multimedia workstation for ops training and recreation. Connection to an appropriate Wide Area Network (WAN) on Earth is possible. The facility will include a broadband data transmission front-end terminal, which is mounted externally on the COLUMBUS module. This Equipment provides high flexibility due to the complete transparent transmit and receive chains, the steerable multi-frequency antenna system and its own thermal and power control and distribution. The Equipment is monitored and controlled via the COLUMBUS internal facility. It combines several new hardware items, which are newly developed for the next generation of broadband communication satellites and operates in Ka -Band with the experimental ESA data relay satellite ARTEMIS. The equipment is also TDRSS compatible; the open loop antenna tracking system employing star sensors enables usability with any other GEO data relay satellite system. In order to be prepared for the upcoming telecom standards for ground distribution of spacecraft generated data, the interface avionics allows for testing ATM-based data formatting and routing. Three testbeds accompany these studies and designs: i)a cable-and-connector testbed measures the signal characteristics for data transfer of up to 200 Mbps through the ii)an avionics &embedded software testbed prepares for data formatting, routing, and storage in CCSDS and ATM; iii)a software testbed tests newly developed S/W man-machine interfaces and simulates bandwidth limitations, on- This makes COLUMBUS a true technology testbed for a variety of engineering topics: - application of terrestrial standard data formats for broadband, near-real-time applications in space - qualification &test of off-the-shelf multimedia equipment in manned spacecraft - secure data transmission in flexible VPNs - in-orbit demonstration of advanced data transmission technology - elaboration of efficient crew and ground operations and training procedures - evaluation of personalized displays (S/W HFI) for long-duration space missions

Decontamination of Battelle-Columbus' Plutonium Facility. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The Plutonium Laboratory, owned and operated by Battelle Memorial Institute's Columbus Division, was located in Battelle's Nuclear Sciences area near West Jefferson, Ohio, approximately 17 miles west of Columbus, Ohio. Originally built in 1960 for plutonium research and processing, the Plutonium Laboratory was enlarged in 1964 and again in 1967. With the termination of the Advanced Fuel Program in March, 1977, the decision was made to decommission the Plutonium Laboratory and to decontaminate the building for unrestricted use. Decontamination procedures began in January, 1978. All items which had come into contact with radioactivity from the plutonium operations were cleaned or disposed of through prescribed channels, maintaining procedures to ensure that D and D operations would pose no risk to the public, the environment, or the workers. The entire program was conducted under the cognizance of DOE's Chicago Operations Office. The building which housed the Plutonium Laboratory has now been decontaminated to levels allowing it to house ordinary laboratory and office operations. A ''Finding of No Significant Impact'' (FNSI) was issued in May, 1980.

These operations, both ground and flight, are supported by an engineering support center, the APMC (APM Center), connected to both Columbus and NASA in orbit infrastructures (IOI). The APMC must fulfill several different roles. The requirements for some roles are reasonably well defined, at least in outline. The requirements for others are still to be defined. Creation of a system for the center which allows all of these roles to be played efficiently and effectively, and when required concurrently is discussed.

Flood-inundation maps for the East Fork White River at Columbus, Indiana  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Digital flood-inundation maps for a 5.4-mile reach of the East Fork White River at Columbus, Indiana, from where the Flatrock and Driftwood Rivers combine to make up East Fork White River to just upstream of the confluence of Clifty Creek with the East Fork White River, were created by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the Indiana Department of Transportation. The inundation maps, which can be accessed through the USGS Flood Inundation Mapping Science Web site at http://water.usgs.gov/osw/flood_inundation, depict estimates of the areal extent of flooding corresponding to selected water levels (stages) at USGS streamgage 03364000, East Fork White River at Columbus, Indiana. Current conditions at the USGS streamgage may be obtained on the Internet from the USGS National Water Information System (http://waterdata.usgs.gov/in/nwis/uv/?site_no=03364000&agency_cd=USGS&). The National Weather Service (NWS) forecasts flood hydrographs for the East Fork White River at Columbus, Indiana at their Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service (AHPS) flood warning system Website (http://water.weather.gov/ahps/), that may be used in conjunction with the maps developed in this study to show predicted areas of flood inundation. In this study, flood profiles were computed for the stream reach by means of a one-dimensional step-backwater model. The hydraulic model was calibrated by using the most current stage-discharge relation at USGS streamgage 03364000, East Fork White River at Columbus, Indiana. The calibrated hydraulic model was then used to determine 15 water-surface profiles for flood stages at 1-foot (ft) intervals referenced to the streamgage datum and ranging from bankfull to approximately the highest recorded water level at the streamgage. The simulated water-surface profiles were then combined with a geographic information system digital elevation model (derived from Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) data), having a 0.37-ft vertical accuracy and a 1.02 ft horizontal accuracy), in order to delineate the area flooded at each water level. The availability of these maps, along with Internet information regarding current stage from the USGS streamgage at Columbus, Indiana, and forecasted stream stages from the NWS will provide emergency management personnel and residents with information that is critical for flood response activities such as evacuations and road closures as well as for post-flood recovery efforts.

Oxbow Conservation Area; Middle Fork John Day River, Annual Report 2003-2004.  

SciTech Connect

In early 2001, the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, through their John Day Basin Office, concluded the acquisition of the Oxbow Ranch, now know as the Oxbow Conservation Area (OCA). Under a memorandum of agreement with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), the Tribes are required to provided BPA an 'annual written report generally describing the real property interests in the Project, HEP analyses undertaken or in progress, and management activities undertaken or in progress'. The project during 2003 was crippled due to the aftermath of the BPA budget crisis. Some objectives were not completed during the first half of this contract because of limited funds in the 2003 fiscal year. The success of this property purchase can be seen on a daily basis. Water rights were utilized only in the early, high water season and only from diversion points with functional fish screens. After July 1, all of the OCA water rights were put instream. Riparian fences on the river, Ruby and Granite Boulder creeks continued to promote important vegetation to provide shade and bank stabilization. Hundreds of willow, dogwood, Douglas-fir, and cottonwood were planted along the Middle Fork John Day River. Livestock grazing on the property was carefully managed to ensure the protection of fish and wildlife habitat, while promoting meadow vigor and producing revenue for property taxes. Monitoring of property populations, resources, and management activities continued in 2003 to build a database for future management of this and other properties in the region.

Atmospheric characteristics conducive to high-ozone days in the Atlanta metropolitan area  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The purpose of this paper is to identify the atmospheric conditions associated with elevated ground-level ozone concentrations during June-August of 2000-2007 at 11 ozone-monitoring stations in the Atlanta, GA, USA metropolitan statistical area (MSA). Analyses were confined to high-ozone days (HODs), which had a daily maximum 8-h average ozone concentration in the 95th percentile of all June-August values. Therefore, each station had 36 HODs. The southeastern and far northern portions of the MSA had HODs with the highest and lowest ozone concentrations, respectively. HODs at nearly all Atlanta MSA ozone-monitoring stations were enabled by migratory anticyclones. HODs for most stations were hot, dry, and calm with low morning mixing heights and high afternoon mixing heights. All sets of HODs had daily mean relative humidities and afternoon mixing heights that, respectively, were significantly less than and significantly greater than mean values for the remaining days. Urbanized Atlanta typically was upwind of an ozone-monitoring station on its HODs; therefore, wind direction on HODs varied considerably among the stations. HODs may have been caused partially by NO x emissions from electric-utility power plants: HODs in the southern portion of the MSA were linked to air-parcel trajectories intersecting a power plant slightly northwest of Atlanta and plants in the Ohio River Valley, while HODs in the northern portion of the MSA were linked to air-parcel trajectories intersecting two large power plants slightly southeast of the Atlanta MSA. Results from this study suggest that future research in the Atlanta MSA should focus on power-plant contributions to ground-level ozone concentrations as well as the identification of non-monitored locations with potentially high ozone concentrations.

Columbus Verification Control Approach Versus Micro-gravity Requirement.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The European project manned module Columbus, as part of the International Space Station has been conceived to allow scientific experiments on micro- gravity environment. In order to face against this challenging Design goal, Alenia Spazio developed a dedicated control approach, based on budget allocation of the mechanical power, covering the design, the Analysis and the Verification aspects from system level down to the equipment one. This Control method covers both the evaluations by analysis and/or by testing of the Columbus Structural and Vibro-acoustic transmission paths and the characterization of the disturbers (as Environment Control Life System fans, Thermal Control System pumps and valves, etc.) in terms of force at the equipment interfaces and Sound power Level emitted by the disturbers in the surrounding volume. A dedicated methodology on how to derive the induced disturber's interface forcing functions has been developed in the frame of this project.This paper reports the most significant outcomes during the whole verification and test process at equipment and system level for the derivation of the disturber forcing function. The originality of the method is based on the fact that in the frame of the Columbus Design/Verification cycle, testing has been done at equipment and at system level for the : a) derivation of the equipment Forcing Function when installed on a reference base-plate b) derivation of the disturbers Forcing function when installed o Columbus in the frame of the complete Micro-gravity System Test that allowed both the characterization of : - the structural and the vibro-acoustic system transmissibility by the use of artificial exciters (as shakers and sound source) - the micro-gravity Environment by the Columbus disturbers activation c) Definition of a combination method of forcing function in order to get similar results coming function in order to get similar results coming from both the equipment characterization standing- alone and from the equipment characterization when installed on Columbus. Samples of the comparison between the forcing functions derived from the equipment tests and from system test will confirm the robustness and the correctness of the combination method and control approach from system level down to equipment one.By this industrial experience developed on ESA-Columbus project, Alenia Spazio got the needed skill and sound database for the Design of the next generation of Space laboratories and Payloads for scientific research on Micro-gravity field.

Clays and Sulfates in a Potential Lacustrine Evaporite Sequence at Columbus Crater, Mars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

From orbit, phyllosilicates and hydrated sulfates on Mars have typically been observed in distinct geographic locales and are thought to record different types of ancient aqueous environments [1]. However, these two mineral classes have recently been found in close association in each of two large impact craters in the Terra Sirenum region of the Southern highlands [2, 3]. In one of these, the D~100 km crater Columbus, CRISM observations show that a polyhydrated non-Fe sulfate is the spatially dominant phase, whereas other distinct layers have spectra consistent with the iron sulfates jarosite and szomolnokite, respectively. Another distinct spectral unit may contain hydrated chloride, or a different non-Fe sulfate. A kaolin group clay is the most commonly detected phyllosilicate, occurring in all CRISM scenes that show the polyhydrated sulfate, but Fe/Mg-phyllosilicates are also seen in small exposures. The polyhydrated sulfate occurs in a light-toned, finely layered, indurated deposit that extends around ~270 degrees of the inner crater wall. The kaolinite unit is commonly stratigraphically beneath the polyhydrated sulfate unit, but some interbedding of the two materials is tentatively observed. Hydrated materials are also present in strata exposed on the crater floor. Kaolinite, sulfates, and chlorides are observed precipitating out of terrestrial acid-saline lakes and ground waters [4], which may be analogs for the environment that deposited the materials in Columbus crater. The overall structure of the deposit is reminiscent of terrestrial "bathtub ring" evaporite deposits. Alternatively, the exposed ring could be part of a preexisting subsurface layer exposed by the impact event; however, the mineral assemblage seen here (kaolinite and polyhydrated sulfate) has not yet been observed in any other craters or intercrater bedrock exposures in the region. Further imaging and topographic data will be used to test the evaporite hypothesis by carefully examining the stratigraphic relationship between the hydrated deposits and crater wall slump blocks. The acidity and salinity implied by the observed mineral assemblage would have posed significant challenges to Martian life here, but fossils preserved in terrestrial acid-saline lake evaporites [5] suggest that sediments in Columbus may also be capable of preserving potential biosignatures until the present day.

DECOMMISSIONING OF HOT CELL FACILITIES AT THE BATTELLE COLUMBUS LABORATORIES  

SciTech Connect

Battelle Columbus Laboratories (BCL), located in Columbus, Ohio, must complete decontamination and decommissioning activities for nuclear research buildings and grounds at its West Jefferson Facilities by 2006, as mandated by Congress. This effort includes decommissioning several hot cells located in the Hot Cell Laboratory (Building JN-1). JN-1 was originally constructed in 1955, and a hot cell/high bay addition was built in the mid 1970s. For over 30 years, BCL used these hot cell facilities to conduct research for the nuclear power industry and several government agencies, including the U.S. Navy, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, and the U.S. Department of Energy. As a result of this research, the JN-1 hot cells became highly contaminated with mixed fission and activation products, as well as fuel residues. In 1998, the Battelle Columbus Laboratories Decommissioning Project (BCLDP) began efforts to decommission JN-1 with the goal of remediating the site to levels of residual contamination allowing future use without radiological restrictions. This goal requires that each hot cell be decommissioned to a state where it can be safely demolished and transported to an off-site disposal facility. To achieve this, the BCLDP uses a four-step process for decommissioning each hot cell: (1) Source Term Removal; (2) Initial (i.e., remote) Decontamination; (3) Utility Removal; and (4) Final (i.e., manual) Decontamination/Stabilization. To date, this process has been successfully utilized on 13 hot cells within JN-1, with one hot cell remaining to be decommissioned. This paper will provide a case study of the hot cell decommissioning being conducted by the BCLDP. Discussed will be the methods used to achieve the goals of each of the hot cell decommissioning stages and the lessons learned that could be applied at other sites where hot cells need to be decommissioned.

Fault-zone seals in siliciclastic strata of the Columbus Basin, offshore Trinidad  

SciTech Connect

This study combines observations from outcrop and drill core with an analysis of the hydrocarbon distribution in two mature oil and gas fields to document the factors controlling the existence of fault seals in the Tertiary sandstone-shale sequence of the Columbus Basin. Juxtaposition of reservoir sandstones against shale intervals across normal faults cannot explain the oil and gas distribution in this area, indicating that fault zones serve as the lateral seals for these hydrocarbon accumulations. The fault-zone seals for the largest hydrocarbon columns (50-200 m) consist of shale smears formed by ductile deformation of shale beds during fault slip. Fault segments that do not meet the criteria for development of a shale smear appear to be transmissible or can seal only small columns (<20 m). Such poorly sealing fault segments are comprised primarily of cataclastically deformed sandstone, which, based on laboratory test data, does not have small enough pore throats to serve as high-capacity capillary seals in this area. Two different modes of fault-sealed trap leakage during hydrocarbon migration can be defined. Where shale smears are discontinuous, such as where a sandstone body is partially juxtaposed against itself, column heights are cross-fault spill-point limited and can be analyzed using fault-plane sections combined with mapping of shale-smear continuity. These traps are likely to preferentially spill high-density hydrocarbons once trap capacity is reached. In contrast, traps bounded by spatially continuous shale smears probably leak through the pore network of the fault-zone material at the top of the trap, thus favoring preferential movement of low-density hydrocarbons in a two-phase system. Hydrocarbon migration through stratigraphic sections containing fault-sealed traps of these two types may result in geochemical fractionation and phase segregation, both of which are observed in the Columbus Basin fields.

Columbus stowage optimization by cast (cargo accommodation support tool)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A challenging issue related to the International Space Station utilization concerns the on-board stowage, implying a strong impact on habitability, safety and crew productivity. This holds in particular for the European Columbus laboratory, nowadays also utilized to provide the station with logistic support. The volume exploitation has to be maximized, in compliance with the given accommodation rules. At each upload step, the stowage problem must be solved quickly and efficiently. This leads to the comparison of different scenarios to select the most suitable one. Last minute upgrades, due to possible re-planning, may, moreover arise, imposing the further capability to rapidly readapt the current solution to the updated status. In this context, looking into satisfactory solutions represents a very demanding job, even for experienced designers. Thales Alenia Space Italia has achieved a remarkable expertise in the field of cargo accommodation and stowage. The company has recently developed CAST, a dedicated in-house software tool, to support the cargo accommodation of the European automated transfer vehicle. An ad hoc version, tailored to the Columbus stowage, has been further implemented and is going to be used from now on. This paper surveys the on-board stowage issue, pointing out the advantages of the proposed approach.

Tectonic influence on depositional sequence development, Columbus Basin, eastern offshore Trinidad and Tobago  

SciTech Connect

The Columbus Basin is located off the eastern coast of Trinidad and the northeastern coast of Venezuela, along the margins of the converging Caribbean and Atlantic plates. Post-Miocene tectonics have resulted in transpressional structures oriented NE-SW and tensional faults oriented NW-SE. Sea level has undergone high frequency fluctuations throughout the Plio-Pleistocene. The Orinoco River, which drains the Andean Highlands, has fed enormous quantities of sediment into the basin since the late Miocene (>30,000[prime]). Several observations from an Integrated Depositional Sequence Analysis of the Columbus Basin are applicable to basins in similar settings, such as the Nile and Niger deltas. These include the following: (1) Limited shelf development, associated with limited shelf subsidence, may be an indicator of shelf bypass and slope Canyon development. (2) United basin-floor and slope fan development may be an indicator of shelf aggradation, associated with subsidence at the shelf-break. (3) Extensional and compressional structures focus feeder systems and localize accommodation space. (4) Drill deeper; the basal deepening of a regressive package may be in response to localized tectonics and indicate only temporary loss of good reservoir. (5) Limited transgressive systems tract development is associated with limited transgressive-time accommodation space, and creates better reservoir-seal relationships. (6) Interactively, integrating data sets provides the best chance for discerning: sequence relationships across the basin, local versus basinwide chronologic events, sediment bypass versus aggradation zones, reservoir trends and TRUE age of the section. (7) Interpreting the rock record in terms of accommodation space and sediment supply provides a much more practical methodology in tectonically active areas than traditional sequence stratigraphic techniques using the classic eustatic-driven model.

Neural activation in arousal and reward areas of the brain in day-active and night-active grass rats  

PubMed Central

In the diurnal unstriped Nile grass rat (Arvicanthis niloticus) access to a running wheel can trigger a shift in active phase preference, with some individuals becoming night-active (NA), while others continue to be day-active (DA). To investigate the contributions of different neural systems to the support of this shift in locomotor activity, we investigated the association between chronotype and Fos expression during the day and night in three major nuclei in the basal forebrain (BF) cholinergic (ACh) arousal system – medial septum (MS), vertical and horizontal diagonal band of Broca (VDB and HDB respectively) –, and whether neural activation in these areas was related to neural activity in the orexinergic system. We also measured Fos expression in dopaminergic and non-dopaminergic cells of two components of the reward system that also participate in arousal – the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and supramammillary nucleus (SUM). NAs and DAs were compared to animals with no wheels. NAs had elevated Fos expression at night in ACh cells, but only in the HDB. In the non-cholinergic cells of the BF of NAs, enhanced nocturnal Fos expression was almost universally seen, but only associated with activation of the orexinergic system for the MS/ VDB region. For some of the areas and cell types of the BF, the patterns of Fos expression of DAs appeared similar to those of NAs, but were never associated with activation of the orexinergic system. Also common to DAs and NAs was a general increase in Fos expression in non-dopaminergic cells of the SUM and anterior VTA. Thus, in this diurnal species, voluntary exercise and a shift to a nocturnal chronotype changes neural activity in arousal and reward areas of the brain known to regulate a broad range of neural functions and behaviors, which may be also affected in human shift workers.

Superfund record of decision (EPA Region 5): Columbus Old Municipal Landfill, Columbus, IN. (First remedial action), March 1992. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The 19-acre Old Municipal Landfill site is located near the City of Columbus in Bartholomew County, Indiana. The site, located in the 100-year floodplain of the East Fork of the White River, is bounded by farmland, state roads, and an inactive gravel quarry pond. Current land use in the vicinity of the site includes an abandoned shooting range, concrete mixing operation, and the City of Columbus POTW. The waste material was dumped directly on the ground surface and was exposed to the elements. Open burning of waste material occurred regularly. Annual spring flooding caused the waste material to become submerged periodically. In 1990, the PRPs, under direct guidance of the state and EPA, conducted an investigation to assess the potential impacts of the waste material deposited in the landfill on soil, ground water, surface water, and river sediments in the vicinity of the site. Based upon findings of the remedial investigation and evaluation of current site risks, EPA concluded that the site currently poses no immediate or long-term risks to human health and the environment. The conclusion is based on current site conditions with the assumption that these conditions will not change. The selected remedial action for the site is no further action (modified), which includes ground water monitoring and a five-year review of site conditions to evaluate the protectiveness of the remedy.

Portal vein cross-sectional area and flow and orthostatic tolerance: a 90-day bed rest study.  

PubMed

The objective of this study was to evaluate the changes in the portal vein cross-sectional area (PV CSA) and flow during a stand test associated with orthostatic intolerance. Eighteen subjects underwent a 90-day head-down tilt (HDT) bed rest at 6 degrees: 9 controls (Con) and 9 with flywheel exercise countermeasures (CM). At post-HDT, nine subjects (5 CM, 4 Con) were tolerant, and nine were intolerant. The PV CSA was measured by echography. We found that at HDT day 85, the PV CSA at rest had increased less in the CM subjects than in the Con (+12 vs. +27% from pre-HDT supine; P < 0.05), whereas it increased similarly in tolerant and intolerant subjects (23 and 16%, respectively). Two days after the HDT, there was a decrease in the PV CSA supine compared with the pre-HDT PV CSA supine that was similar for all groups (Con: -11%, CM: -21%; tolerant: -10%, intolerant: -16%; P < 0.05). The PV CSA decreased significantly less from supine to standing in the Con than in the CM group (-2 vs. -10% compared with the pre-HDT stand test; P < 0.05). The PV CSA also decreased significantly from supine to standing compared with the pre-HDT stand test in the tolerant group but not in the intolerant group (-20 vs. +2%; P < 0.05). From these findings, we conclude the following. 1) Because the portal vein is the only output from the splanchnic vascular area, we suggest that the lower reduction in the PV CSA and flow associated with orthostatic intolerance was related to a lower splanchnic arterial vasoconstriction. 2) The flywheel exercise CM helped to reduce the distention of the splanchnic network at rest and to maintain partially the splanchnic vasoconstriction, but it did not reduce the orthostatic intolerance.

Decreased Length of Stay and Cumulative Hospitalized Days Despite Increased Patient Admissions and Readmissions in an Area of Urban Poverty  

PubMed Central

Background Length of stay at US acute care hospitals has been steadily decreasing since 1960, and there is ongoing concern that increasing financial pressures on hospitals with high proportions of Medicaid patients may be causing unduly short lengths of stay. Objective To study temporal trends in hospital utilization on internal medicine services at Temple University Hospital, which has the highest percentage of Medicaid and uninsured patients in the state of Pennsylvania. Design Examination of temporal changes in hospital practice over three time periods spanning 13 years. Measurements Numbers of discharges, 1- and 12-month re-admission rates, and lengths of stay. US census data from 1990 to 2000 were examined for the eight major zip codes in which hospitalized patients live. Main Results The number of internal medicine admissions increased from 1991 (117/month) to 2004 (455/month); p?days; p?days; p?=?0.031). Compared to all US hospitals, our hospital had a greater increase in admissions and a greater decrease in length of stay. During this time period, in surrounding zip codes, there were decreases in total population and total number of persons living in poverty, but also multiple closures of area hospitals that served poor patients. Conclusion During the 13-year study period, despite increased readmission rates, the overall number of hospitalized days per year on the internal medicine inpatient service decreased. As local hospitals serving this inner city low income area have closed, our hospital had atypically high increases in numbers of admissions and decreases in length of stay. This raises questions about current adequacy of hospital care in inner city areas of poverty.

A decade of Dial-a-Dietitian in Columbus, Ohio.  

PubMed

Data gathered during the decade 1962-1972 on Dial-a-Dietitian as a community service of the Columbus Dietetic Association support the usefulness of this unique experiment in community nutrition education. The image of the dietitian as a spokesman for the science of nutrition and as a contributing member of the health team should be advanced in every way possible. Dial-a-Dietitian is a realistic vehicle which offers much needed assistance. There emerges the need for individualized diet counseling with a fee-for-service and referral from the physician or dentist. Dial-a-Dietitian might then be in a position to direct its enery and resources toward better serving community needs with respect to normal nutrition education. District dietetic associations should define and redefine the objectives to be served by the Dial-a-Diettian program as these relate to specific and changing requirements. PMID:1110301

Helicobacter pylori in North and South America before Columbus.  

PubMed

We present a molecular epidemiologic study, based on an analysis of vacA, cagA and cag right end junction genotypes from 1042 Helicobacter pylori isolates, suggesting that H. pylori was present in the New World before Columbus. Eight Native Colombian and Alaskan strains possessed novel vacA and/or cagA gene structures and were more closely related to East Asian than to non-Asian H. pylori. Some Native Alaskan strains appear to have originated in Central Asia and to have arrived after strains found in South America suggesting that H. pylori crossed the Bering Strait from Asia to the New World at different times.

Efforts to Recruit Secondary STEM Teachers at Columbus State University  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Physics as a discipline is not alone in having difficulty finding qualified teachers. Under-qualified teachers are present in high school Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Earth-science classrooms as well. Columbus State University (CSU) has formed the Mathematics and Science Secondary Teachers (MaSST) Preparation Council to recruit more majors into our existing secondary teaching programs: Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and Geology. College of Education and College of Science faculty are working together to create a higher profile for these majors at our institution within the state of Georgia. In addition, we are planning an aggressive campaign to recruit from within by implementing a peer-tutoring program using outstanding students who have completed introductory math and science courses. Our group’s organization and initiatives can serve as a model for other institutions concerned about recruiting more high-school teachers.

Structure and present-day compression in the offshore area between Alicante and Ibiza Island (Eastern Iberian Margin)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study deals with the structure and recent deformation of the Eastern Iberian margin, extending from basement to seafloor and including the south-western margin of the Valencia Basin, the Alicante Shelf, the Ibiza Channel and its southern margin descending into the Algerian Basin. This area underwent a complex tectonic evolution linked to the back-arc opening of the North-western Mediterranean and the concomitant contraction of the Betic belt due to the collision with blocks located between Africa and Europe. This Oligo-Miocene structural heritage gave rise to a complex and continuous deformation through times including Late Miocene post-orogenic extension and Pliocene to Quaternary compression in the western Balearic area and coeval extension in the Valencia basin.This study presents maps of the depth to basement and Base of the Pliocene, as well as bathymetry data and seismic lines, which provide a precise integrated 3D study of the offshore domain. It reveals a major reactivation of the area, represented by the N80 to N60 trending structures, small discontinuous folds and thrusts in the Ibiza Channel and a large flexure on the Alicante shelf. The structures are picked out by erosion surfaces or deposits linked to the Messinian Salinity Crisis (MSC). These markers are ubiquitous in the seismic sedimentary sequences and record the lateral and vertical deformation active from the Messinian Salinity Crisis to the Present. The contraction in the western Iberian margin and concomitant extension in the southern Valencia Basin are consistent with the regional stress field as determined from the focal mechanisms of offshore earthquakes or recent GPS measurements. The tectonic compression of the studied area casts doubt on the eventual propagation of the present-day compressive stress from the Algerian margin to the Western Balearic Promontory.

Automation and robotics for COLUMBUS: An implementation concept for the free flying laboratory (MTFF)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With nearly forty percent of the funding, Germany is the main contributor to the European COLUMBUS Programme, followed by Italy, France and further ESA member states. The COLUMBUS elements are the Attached Laboratory (APM) to be permanently attached to the Space Station FREEDOM, the polar platform (PPF) and the Man Tended Free Flyer (MTFF). The latter element is regarded to be of special interest for the German micro-g community. Until now the implementation of A&R Technologies has not been included as part of the system concept for the COLUMBUS laboratory modules. Yet especially for the Free Flyer, a high degree of A&R will be indispensible. An A&R system concept and implementation options for A&R are given to make the COLUMBUS labs 'intelligent' laboratories in orbit.

The role of the APM centre to support Columbus precursor flights  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The responsibilities of the APM Center (APMC), which is the engineering support center for the Columbus Attached Laboratory (APM), in the context of Spacelab mission E1 are described. Comparisons are made with analogous Columbus activities. The APMC will be one of the most important European ground facilities for the support of the Columbus Attached laboratory. The APMC will act as the system reference. Additionally, it will support the onboard operations through the engineering and logistics support functions. Finally. the APMC will play a key role for the payload integration, performing both the payload analytical integration and the final acceptance of the payload elements before shipping to the U.S. for the integration on the Logistic Carrier. As the Spacelab mission E1 is a Columbus precursor flight, it will be a unique opportunity to test at least two of the main functions of the APMC, namely the payload integration support and the engineering support.

Contributions of suspended sediment from highway construction and other land uses to the Olentangy River, Columbus, Ohio  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Highway construction within the Olentangy River flood plain in Columbus, Ohio, was projected to be a large source of suspended sediment to the river system. A monitoring program was begun by the U.S. Geological Survey in 1978 to quantify the implacts of construction process. Sediment information was collected daily at six gaging stations located above, below, and within the construction area. Yields of suspended sediment from the active construction area ranged from 9,580 to 15,700 tons per square mile per year. Surrounding suburban terrain yielded 428 to754 tons per square mile per year. However, the size of the construction project was small in comparison to the surrounding suburbs contributing sediment. No more than 4 percent of the yearly downstream suspended-sediment loads were produced by high-way construction during the monitoring periods.

Delayed age of gilts at first mating associated with photoperiod and number of hot days in humid subtropical areas.  

PubMed

The objective of the present study was to quantify the associations between age at first mating (AFM) in gilts and the climatic factors of photoperiod (PP; h), number of hot days (HD) and relative humidity for different herd productivity groups. This study used records of 37,362 gilts born in 2007 and 2008 in 101 Japanese herds, which were classified into high-performing and ordinary herds based on the pigs weaned per mated female per year. The climate data were obtained from 21 weather stations. The HD was defined as the number of days that achieved a maximum temperature >25°C. Average values of daily PP, relative humidity and HD from day 91 to 150 after birth of a gilt were coordinated with the respective gilt performance data. Two-level mixed-effects models were applied to the data by using a herd at level 2 and a gilt at level 1. Mean AFM (ranges), PP, HD and relative humidity were 247.9 days old (152-364 days old), 12.2h (9-15h), 18.7 days (0-60 days) and 68.4% (48-87%), respectively. Delayed AFM was associated with decreased PP, more HD and being in an ordinary herd (P<0.05), but not with relative humidity. As PP rose by an hour, the AFM in high-performing herds decreased by 1.13 days rather than that in ordinary herds. It is possible that AFM in replacement gilts could be hastened by improving light control and cooling management during hot days. PMID:23669617

[PM2.5 pollution and aerosol optical properties in fog and haze days during autumn and winter in Beijing area].  

PubMed

A study on the PM2.5 pollution and aerosol optical properties in haze-fog days was carried out from Sep. 1st to Dec. 7th, 2011 in Beijing area by using PM2.5 concentration, aerosol scattering coefficient (sigma sca) and absorption coefficient (sigma abs) measured under urban and rural environment. The effect of weather condition on the PM25 pollution and aerosol optical properties was discussed as well. The results showed that the PM2.5 concentration, sigma sca and sigma abs, were evidently higher in haze-fog days than those in non-haze-fog days. The average PM2.5 concentrations in haze-fog days with values of 97.6 microg m-3 and 64.4 microg.m-3 were as 3.3 and 4.8 times as those in non-haze-fog days at urban and rural stations, respectively. The higher PM2.5 concentration in urban area resulted in the more frequent fog and haze phenomena than that in rural area. The PM25 concentration, sigma sca, and sigma abs were significantly higher in urban area than that in rural area in mist days, while relatively close in mist-haze days. This difference suggested that the effect of regional transport of pollution was relatively evident in mist-haze days but weak in mist day. In fog days the sigma sca showed no evident difference between urban and rural area, and was the highest in all types of fog and haze weather. The scattering property of aerosol was the strongest in fog days. The different weather conditions resulted in various characteristics of spatial distribution of PM2.5 concentration, sigma sca and sigma abs, as well as the strength of PM2,5 pollution and aerosol extinction. The pollutants transported by the strong southwest wind above the boundary layer and subsided in the boundary layer companying with the local accumulation of pollutants due to the weak diffusion resulted in the most serious haze-fog episode with the strongest PM2.5 pollution and aerosol extinction.

Columbus crater and other possible groundwater-fed paleolakes of Terra Sirenum, Mars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Columbus crater in the Terra Sirenum region of the Martian southern highlands contains light-toned layered deposits with interbedded sulfate and phyllosilicate minerals, a rare occurrence on Mars. Here we investigate in detail the morphology, thermophysical properties, mineralogy, and stratigraphy of these deposits; explore their regional context; and interpret the crater's aqueous history. Hydrated mineral-bearing deposits occupy a discrete ring around the walls of Columbus crater and are also exposed beneath younger materials, possibly lava flows, on its floor. Widespread minerals identified in the crater include gypsum, polyhydrated and monohydrated Mg/Fe-sulfates, and kaolinite; localized deposits consistent with montmorillonite, Fe/Mg-phyllosilicates, jarosite, alunite, and crystalline ferric oxide or hydroxide are also detected. Thermal emission spectra suggest abundances of these minerals in the tens of percent range. Other craters in northwest Terra Sirenum also contain layered deposits and Al/Fe/Mg-phyllosilicates, but sulfates have so far been found only in Columbus and Cross craters. The region's intercrater plains contain scattered exposures of Al-phyllosilicates and one isolated mound with opaline silica, in addition to more common Fe/Mg-phyllosilicates with chlorides. A Late Noachian age is estimated for the aqueous deposits in Columbus, coinciding with a period of inferred groundwater upwelling and evaporation, which (according to model results reported here) could have formed evaporites in Columbus and other craters in Terra Sirenum. Hypotheses for the origin of these deposits include groundwater cementation of crater-filling sediments and/or direct precipitation from subaerial springs or in a deep (˜900 m) paleolake. Especially under the deep lake scenario, which we prefer, chemical gradients in Columbus crater may have created a habitable environment at this location on early Mars.

Smoking Behaviors and Cessation Interests Among Multiunit Subsidized Housing Tenants, Columbus, Ohio, 2011  

PubMed Central

Introduction Cessation services have been recommended to complement smoke-free policies in subsidized multiunit housing, but little is known about smoking- and cessation-related characteristics among subsidized housing tenants. This study examined smoking behaviors and cessation-related interests in a population of subsidized housing tenants. Methods A face-to-face survey was conducted in August to October 2011 with a probability sample of private subsidized housing lease holders in Columbus, Ohio (N = 301, 64% response rate). Results Almost half (47.5%) of respondents were current smokers, including smokers of cigarettes or small cigars. Smokers were less likely than nonsmokers to have health insurance and more likely to be at risk for food insecurity. Among smokers, 20.3% did not smoke daily and 35.0% smoked 5 or fewer cigarettes per day. More than half (61.3%) purchased single cigarettes in the past month, with higher rates among nondaily smokers. Most smokers intended to quit within 6 months or less (60.1%) and were interested in using nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) (65.0%). Most respondents had Medicaid but only 30.4% knew Medicaid covered cessation medications. Conclusions This population of subsidized housing tenants had high rates of smoking, including light smoking. Interest in NRT was high and access can be improved by increasing awareness of Medicaid coverage among clients and health care providers. However, more research is needed about scalable, evidence-based cessation strategies for low-socioeconomic status and light smokers. Strategies to address environmental factors such as availability of single cigarettes should also be considered in parallel with smoke-free policies.

Paracontinuous boundaries within the Devonian Columbus Limestone and Delaware Formation of central Ohio  

SciTech Connect

Internal units within the Columbus Limestone (Early Devonian Emsian [Schoharie] to Middle Devonian Eifelian [late Onesquethawan]) and the Delaware Formation (Middle Devonian early Givetian [Cazenovian]) of central Ohio are separated by disconformities of the magnitude of paracontinuities. Stauffer (1909) divided the Columbus Limestone into zones A--H and the Delaware Formation into zones I--M. Within the Columbus, the A Zone (conglomerate at the base of Bellepoint Member) disconformably overlies Late Silurian beds. The D zone at top of the Bellepoint Member (bearing the Kawkawlin Metabentonite horizon) is overlain paracontinuously by the Marblehead Member (Lower Paraspirifer acuminatus-Spirifer macrothyris to Brevispirifer gregarius-Moellerina greenei zones [= E--G zones]), with the Onondagan Indian Nation Metabentonite in the top of the G Zone. The Marblehead Member is overlain paracontinuously by a bone bed at base of the Venice Member (H zone = Upper Paraspirifer acuminatus- Spirifer duodenarius'' Zone). I Zone (Dublin Shale=Marcellus) of the Delaware Formation overlies the Columbus and has two bone beds at its base; Tioga Metabentonite (restricted) overlies the I Zone bone beds and is a few tenths to 1.85 feet above the base of the I Zone.

Health hazard evaluation report HETA 84-198-1560, Division of Public Health Laboratories, State of Ohio, Columbus, Ohio. [Ethylene oxide and organic-solvent vapors  

SciTech Connect

Breathing-zone and environmental samples were analyzed for ethylene oxide and organic-solvent vapors at the Public Health Laboratory, State of Ohio, Columbus, Ohio, on March 26 and 27, 1984. The evaluation was requested because of employee complaints of mucous membrane and skin irritation while they poured gonorrhea culture media into petri dishes that had been sterilized with ethylene oxide. The authors conclude that the environmental cause of the health problems cannot be determined due to the lack of symptoms on the days of the survey. Without taking measurements on the exact day when conspicuous symptoms occur, it is difficult to determine the source of the problem. General recommendations include checking the general air circulation in the media laboratory and encouraging employees to wear gloves that protect hands and wrists while pouring culture media.

Cosmic radiation shielding properties of COLUMBUS and REMSIM multi-layer external shells  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The European module COLUMBUS has been recently installed on the International Space Station. Future plans for exploration involve the use of inflatable modules, such as the REMSIM concept proposed in a previous ESA funded study. We studied the radiation shielding properties of COLUMBUS and REMSIM external shell using 1 GeV/n Feor H-ions accelerated at the NASA Space Radiation Laboratory at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (Long Island, NY, USA). COLUMBUS has a 22 mm rigid multi-layer shell with Al, Nextel and Kevlar, as materials of the double bumper for meteoroids and debris protection, MLI for thermal reasons and again Al as pressure shell. Inside the module, astronauts are further protected by secondary structures, including racks, a number of electronic devices and payload equipment. This internal equipment has been simulated using Al and Kevlar, bringing the total thickness to about 15 g/cm2. REMSIM consists of a thermal multi-layer (MLI), four Nextel layers used to provide shock of the impacting micro-meteoroids, a ballistic restraint multi-layer of Kevlar used to absorb debris cloud's kinetic energy, a Kevlar structural restraint to support pressure loads incurred from inflating the module. To contain air inside the module, REMSIM adopts three layers of airtight material separated by two layers of Kevlar (air bladder). A final layer of Nomex provide protection against punctures and fire. In the flight configuration there are also spacer elements (foam) needed to guarantee correct spacing between consecutive bumper layers. These spacers were not included in the tests, making the total thickness about 1.1 cm. The internal equipment in REMSIM was not been defined, but due to its application for exploration missions it was decided to exploit water, valuable resource used for drinking, washing and technical usage, as a radiation shielding. In this test, we have included about 8 cm of water. Measured dose attenuation shows that the Columbus module reduces the heavy-ion dose approximately of 30

In response to a request from management at the Northland Terrace Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (SIC-8051), Columbus, Ohio, a study was undertaken of headaches in workers in the laundry facility and upper respiratory infections associated with delivering Attends diapers. The study included employee interviews, environmental monitoring, and an assessment of the adequacy of the design and performance of the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning system. Northland Terrace was a nursing and rehabilitation center. Employees who work in the laundry facility reported that they experience headache while present in this area which was renovated in 1989. Carbon-dioxide (124389) concentrations exceeded 1000 parts per million. Biologically significant carbon-monoxide (630080) concentrations were not observed. Temperatures in the laundry rooms ranged from 86 to 92 degrees-F. Relative humidities ranged from 48 to 56%. A possible reaction to the dust or the fragrance associated with Attends diapers was not followed to completion as the nursing facility stopped using this product during the study. The authors conclude that there was an inadequate supply of outside air in the laundry and basement areas. The authors recommend measures to improve the ventilation system and reduce the potential for heat stress in the laundry.

AURIO: A proposal for flying auroral imaging observatory on the Polar Platform in the Space Station/Columbus program  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is proposed to fly high resolution auroral imaging instruments and particle spectrometers on the Columbus Polar Platform (PPF). A set of UV and X-ray imagers with wide field of view (horizon to horizon) will map the large scale (semiglobal) features of the aurora at day and night with fairly high spatial and temporal resolution. A set of visible and X-ray imagers and imaging spectrographs in visible and UV range with narrow field (NF) of view will give images with very high spatial resolution (better than 1 km and a few km respectively for optical and X-ray imagers) and a time resolution of 1 sec. The NF-imagers will be mounted on a pointable instrument pedestal to be operated in different modes. Particle spectrometers will cover electrons and ions over a wide energy range, and with high time resolution (10 ms). It is also desireable to fly a magnetometer. The particle and field instruments should be integrated in a separate package mounted on a boom protruding at least 10 m from the PPF, to minimize the contamination from the PPF environment.

A massively parallel multireference configuration interaction program : the parallel COLUMBUS program.  

SciTech Connect

A massively parallel version of the configuration interaction (CI) section of the COLUMBUS multireference singles and doubles CI (MRCISD) program system is described. In an extension of our previous parallelization work, which was based on message passing, the global array (GA) toolkit has now been used. For each process, these tools permit asynchronous and efficient access to logical blocks of 1- and 2-dimensional (2-D) arrays physically distributed over the memory of all processors. The GAs are available on most of the major parallel computer systems enabling very convenient portability of our parallel program code. To demonstrate the features of the parallel COLUMBUS CI code, benchmark calculations on selected MRCI and SRCI test cases are reported for the CRAY T3D, Intel Paragon, and IBM SP2. Excellent scaling with the number of processors up to 256 processors (CRAY T3D) was observed. The CI section of a 19 million configuration MRCISD calculation was carried out within 20 min wall clock time on 256 processors of a CRAY T3D. Computations with 38 million configurations were performed recently; calculations up to about 100 million configurations seem possible within the near future.

The scientific background, techniques, and facilities for a microgravity fluid science laboratory (FSL) on Columbus are outlined. The FSL provides for self-contained experiment cells, for on-orbit configuration of liquid, including continuous flow experiments, and allows accommodation of unspecified facilities. It consists of two double racks, LEDR and REDR. The REDR is equipped with a cold loop (working temperature minus 15 C) to thermostat the TGC and optional cold ends. The loop pump and thermostat (refrigerator) are in the climatization fluid service station. Loop temperature regulation conforms to thermographic cavity requirements. The LEDR has a heat dump loop to cool equipment and to allow quenches. Loop temperature is coarsely regulated, fine control is to be realized at the experiment (Peltier elements).

COLUMBUS Orbital Facility and Automated Transfer Vehicle: a challenge for agency & industry.  

PubMed

Long term continuous operation of the COLUMBUS Orbital Facility (COF) flight- and ground segment requires continuous mission control and operations support capability to ensure proper operation and configuration of the COF systems in support of ongoing science and technology payloads. The ISS logistics scenario will be supported by the Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV). These operational needs require the built-up of a new ground infrastructure in Europe and USA, enabling an efficient operations for preparation, planning and mission execution. The challenge for the European space community consists in the development and operation of a user friendly operational environment but keeping costs within budgetary constraints. Results of detailed definition studies performed by both agency and industry for the ground infrastructure indicate solutions to those technical and programmatic requirements by using of existing centers and facilities, re-use of C/D phase products (Hardware, Software) and COTS equipment to avoid costly new developments, using engineering expertise of the industrial personnel from flight element phase C/D. The concept for operations execution defines the task sharing between Operations Control Facilities (OCF), Operations Support Facilities and User Operations Sites. Operations support consists of on-line engineering support, off-line engineering support, payload integration, logistics support and crew training support performed by industry. DASA RI has made internal investments in organizational concepts for mission operations as well as in mission technologies and tools based on the standard COLUMBUS Ground Software (CGS) toolset and on knowledge based systems to enable an efficient industrial operations support. These tools are available as prototypes being evaluated in a simulated operational environment. PMID:11541146

Economic losses in the Columbus SMSA due to long-range transport of airborne residuals in the Ohio River Basin energy study region  

SciTech Connect

This report was prepared as part of the Ohio River Basin Energy Study (ORBES), a multidisciplinary policy research program supported by the Environmental Protection Agency. The ORBES region covers all of Kentucky, most of West Virginia, southwestern Pennsylvania, and substantial portions of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Central Ohio is an area where the long-range transport of air pollutants is a problem, and a relatively small increase in pollution emitted from sources within the SMSA could cause the area to violate federal primary standards for sulfur dioxide and particulates. This report estimates the potential loss in economic product to the Columbus SMSA by calculating the difference in economic output between (1) the projected increase in potential output possible under existing air quality regulations without additional background pollution from new out-of-area fossil fuel power plants and (2) the projected increase in output possible when this additional source of pollution is taken into account. Estimated losses are provided for seven different ORBES scenarios.

Safety strategy and implementation for the rendezvous of the Columbus Free-Flyer with the Space Station Freedom  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The mission of the Columbus Free Flyer includes active rendezvous maneuvers with the International Space Station Freedom. This imposes challenging safety requirements, which drive the design of the autonomous GNC (Guidance, Navigation, and Control) subsystem. The rendezvous safety philosophy is based on the safe trajectory principle. This means that, at any point in time, propulsion shutoff will lead to a free drift trajectory that does not intersect the flight path of Space Station Freedom. This concept allows a separation of nominal flight control functions from those functions required for safety check and abort of the rendezvous. The rendezvous scenario and the safety related requirements are reviewed and the proposed safety strategy and its hardware and software implementation in the GNC of the Columbus Free Flyer are shown.

The DOSIS -Experiment onboard the Columbus Laboratory of the International Space Station -First Mission Results from the Active DOSTEL Instruments  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Besides the effects of the microgravity environment, and the psychological and psychosocial problems encountered in confined spaces, radiation is the main health detriment for long dura-tion human space missions. The radiation environment encountered in space differs in nature from that on earth, consisting mostly of high energetic ions from protons up to iron, resulting in radiation levels far exceeding the ones encountered on earth for occupational radiation workers. Accurate knowledge of the physical characteristics of the space radiation field in dependence on the solar activity, the orbital parameters and the different shielding configurations of the International Space Station ISS is therefore needed. For the investigation of the spatial and temporal distribution of the radiation field inside the European COLUMBUS module the DLR experiment DOSIS (Dose Distribution Inside the ISS) was launched on July 15th 2009 with STS-127 to the ISS. The experimental package was transferred from the Space Shuttle into COLUMBUS on July 18th. It consists in a first part of a combination of passive detector packages (PDP) distributed at 11 locations inside the European Columbus Laboratory. The second part are two active radiation detectors (DOSTELs) with a DDPU (DOSIS Data and Power Unit) in a nomex pouch (DOSIS MAIN BOX) mounted at a fixed location beneath the European Physiology Module (EPM) inside COLUMBUS. After the successful installation the active part has been activated on the 18th July 2009. Each of the DOSTEL units consists of two 6.93 cm PIPS silicon detectors forming a telescope with an opening angle of 120. The two DOSTELs are mounted with their telescope axis perpendicular to each other to investigate anisotropies of the radiation field inside the COLUMBUS module especially during the passes through the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) and during Solar Particle Events (SPEs). The data from the DOSTEL units are transferred to ground via the EPM rack which is activated approximately every four weeks for this action. The first data downlink was performed on July 31st 2009. First Results for the DOSTEL measurements such as count rate profiles, dose rates and LET spectra will be presented in comparison to the data obtained by other experiments.

Advanced Software Maintenance Approach for the Complex Columbus Flight Software System  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Many products in the space industry are unique systems which are utilized for a short period of time to fulfil a specific mission. Therefore, the importance of software maintenance has been often underestimated. However, if the utilization phase is meant to be longer, a well established software maintenance process has to be applied to meet the high requirements of complex space flight systems. In this paper, the adaptation of the software maintenance approach for the COLUMBUS laboratory, established during the development phase, to the evolving requirements of the utilization phase is described. The new approach is based on the Generation Environment, comprising different data storage repositories and software components for automatic performance of generation and integration tasks. The storage repositories are used for managing the integrated flight software, as well as for tracking the maintenance process, and for generation of reports and documentation. The automation components help to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the process by providing well defined user interfaces and a single point of access to various generation and integration tools. Current experience with the new Generation Environment, show that the new approach provides a much better understanding of the process. Furthermore, it becomes more transparent and easier to adapt to new requirements. One further pursued aim is to be able to apply this concept for the integration of other systems and other projects by developing it as open and generic as possible.

Condensed draft action description memorandum for the decontamination and decommissioning of Battelle Columbus facilities  

SciTech Connect

Under provisions of the Surplus Facilities Management Program (SFMP), the US Department of Energy, Chicago Operations Office, proposes to provide funding for Surveillance and Maintenance (S & M) and subsequent Decontamination and Decommissioning (D & D) of fifteen facilities and associated premises belonging to Battelle Columbus Division. The fifteen facilities are contaminated as a result of nuclear research and development activities conducted over a period of approximately 43 years for DOE and its predecessor agencies--the Energy Research and Development Administration (ERDA), the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and the Manhattan Engineer District (MED). The proposed action includes continuation of ongoing S & M as well as a D & D of the facilities. The S & M activities include a continued environmental monitoring program to maintain assurance that radioactive contamination has not escaped to the surrounding environment; regularly scheduled inspection and maintenance of health, safety, and radiation protection equipment and instrumentation; a program of health physics surveillance monitoring, personnel dosimetry, and equipment and instrumentation maintenance and calibration; and emergency planning, training, and drills. The so- called dismantlement D & D mode is the proposed alternative for D & D of these facilities. For the facilities in question this will generally involve dismantlement and/or removal of equipment; decontamination of building structures; and restoration of the buildings. The decontamination will reduce contamination to levels consistent with unrestricted use of the facilities.

Distribution and composition of Illinoian tills of the glaciated Appalachian Plateau east of Columbus, Ohio  

SciTech Connect

Many Illinoian tills which crop out in north-central Ohio can be traced into Licking County on the Appalachian Plateau east of columbus. Low carbonate till, BI at Mt. Gilead and correlative of the Millbrook Till at its type section, crops out throughout the county. High carbonate tills, BII at Mt. Gilead, correlates with the Gahanna till of the Rocky Fork drift. Multiple beds of diamict representing different facies of the Gahanna Till are exposed in stream cuts near alexandria and suggest an oscillating ice front. An older till of intermediate carbonate content crops out east of the Gahanna Till boundary but is not as extensive as the Millbrook till. Late wisconsinan Navarre till overlies Illinoian tills in many outcrops in western Licking County. Average clay contents of Illinoian tills decrease with increasing age. Millbrook Till contains about 6% dolomite and a small amount of calcite. Gahanna Till averages 16% total carbonate, contains as much as 23% carbonate, and has an average calcite-dolomite ratio equal to 0.3. The oldest Illinoian till contains 11% total carbonate and has calcite/dolomite equal to 0.2. The diffraction intensity ratio of all tills averages 1.2. Local clastic rocks dominate the 1--2 mm sand fractions of all tills which also contain extra-local carbonates eroded from outcrops in Delaware and Franklin counties.

Present-day long-term deformation from GPS survey in an intraplate area (Ploemeur aquifer, French Brittany): influence of hydrological and hydrogeological processes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Four years of continuous GPS measurements were performed in an intraplate area located above the crystalline aquifer of Ploemeur (French Brittany) in order to quantify the three-dimensional surface deformation and to evaluate the relationship between the ground deformation and hydrological surface and hydrogeological processes. Several processes as tide effects, ocean tide loading and tectonics were removed thanks to a differential GPS setup, short baselines and appropriated processing parameters. Time series were calculated with the GAMIT/GLOBK software and indicate a seasonal deformation on both vertical direction (up to 16 mm of total displacement) and horizontal plane (3 to 12 mm of total displacement). This sub-annual deformation is principally related to the piezometric level of the aquifer and is used to estimate some hydrogeological parameters of the aquifer and better know the behaviour of this aquifer along the time. However, some additional data of the hydrous state of the ground allows us to associate a part of the deformation to this surface process. This GPS study highlights that these two phenomena act significantly on ground motion as well on vertical direction as in horizontal plane and should be integrated in any Earth deformation survey.

Health-hazard evaluation report HETA 85-041-1709, City of Columbus Refuse-derived Fuel Power Plant, Columbus, Ohio  

SciTech Connect

Potential for heat stress along with exposure to chemical contaminants and airborne microbial pollutants was investigated at the City refuse-derived-fuel powerplant. Health hazards existed to lead and silica exposures for workers involved in handling ash. Low levels of exposure to chromium, chromium-VI, cadmium, and nickel were noted. Excessive heat stress occurred during the maintenance activities in hot areas of the facility. Airborne microbial contamination levels in the refuse-handling areas indicate that exposure hazards exist by both the inhalation and ingestion routes. Human pathogens may be present in the microbial pollutants. The author recommends that employee exposure to lead be reduced through the use of engineering controls. Eating, drinking, and carrying or use of tobacco products or cosmetics in the power plant and refuse handling areas should be prohibited. Recommended methods for controlling heat stress were given.

Industrywide studies report: a walk through survey of Ross Laboratories (Division of Abbott Laboratories), Columbus, Ohio. [Ethylene oxide  

SciTech Connect

A walk-through survey was conducted at Ross Laboratories, a Division of Abbott Laboratories, Columbus, Ohio in August, 1985. The purpose of the survey was to determine the feasibility of including the facility in a NIOSH industry wide mortality/industrial hygiene survey of ethylene oxide. The facility produced infant formula and infant related products, including nipples. The company had a full time nurse on the first and second shifts. A physician was available on a contract basis. New employees were given preemployment physicals. Employees received annual physicals until 1982 after which they became optional. The physicals did not include any components relating to ethylene-oxide exposure. The authors conclude that the personnel records are not adequate to identify a cohort of exposed individuals at the facility. The facility will not be included in the NIOSH study.

Antibacterial therapeutics for the treatment of chytrid infection in amphibians: Columbus's egg?  

PubMed Central

Background The establishment of safe and effective protocols to treat chytridiomycosis in amphibians is urgently required. In this study, the usefulness of antibacterial agents to clear chytridiomycosis from infected amphibians was evaluated. Results Florfenicol, sulfamethoxazole, sulfadiazine and the combination of trimethoprim and sulfonamides were active in vitro against cultures of five Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis strains containing sporangia and zoospores, with minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of 0.5-1.0??g/ml for florfenicol and 8.0??g/ml for the sulfonamides. Trimethoprim was not capable of inhibiting growth but, combined with sulfonamides, reduced the time to visible growth inhibition by the sulfonamides. Growth inhibition of B. dendrobatidis was not observed after exposure to clindamycin, doxycycline, enrofloxacin, paromomycin, polymyxin E and tylosin. Cultures of sporangia and zoospores of B. dendrobatidis strains JEL423 and IA042 were killed completely after 14?days of exposure to 100??g/ml florfenicol or 16??g/ml trimethoprim combined with 80??g/ml sulfadiazine. These concentrations were, however, not capable of efficiently killing zoospores within 4?days after exposure as assessed using flow cytometry. Florfenicol concentrations remained stable in a bathing solution during a ten day period. Exposure of Discoglossus scovazzi tadpoles for ten days to 100??g/ml but not to 10??g florfenicol /ml water resulted in toxicity. In an in vivo trial, post metamorphic Alytes muletensis, experimentally inoculated with B. dendrobatidis, were treated topically with a solution containing 10??g/ml of florfenicol during 14?days. Although a significant reduction of the B. dendrobatidis load was obtained, none of the treated animals cleared the infection. Conclusions We thus conclude that, despite marked anti B. dendrobatidis activity in vitro, the florfenicol treatment used is not capable of eliminating B. dendrobatidis infections from amphibians.

Results of the preliminary radiological survey at B and T Metals, 425 West Town Street, Columbus, Ohio (CO001)  

SciTech Connect

As part of the Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP), the US Department of Energy (DOE) is implementing a radiological survey program to determine the radiological conditions at sites that were formerly used by the department's predecessor agencies. The preliminary radiological survey discussed in this report for the B T Metals site in Columbus, Ohio, is part of the FUSRAP effort and was conducted at the request of DOE by members of the Measurement Applications and Development Group of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in 1988 and 1989. In the 1940s the B T Metals site was used to provide extrusion of uranium billets into rods in support of the Manhattan Engineer District (MED) operations. The preliminary radiological survey included a surface gamma scan, collection of dust, debris, and soil samples, measurement of direct and transferable alpha and beta-gamma activity, and air sampling. Results of this radiological assessment indicate that the property contains residual radioactivity from MED activities in concentrations that exceed remedial action guidelines. 8 refs., 8 figs., 6 tabs.

POPULATION DISTRIBUTION DURING THE DAY  

SciTech Connect

Population distribution during the day can be defined as distribution of population in an area during the daytime hours. However, a precise definition of daytime hours is challenging given the geographic variability in the length of a day or daylight hours. The US Census Bureau used "normal business hours" as the span of time to describe daytime population. Given that Censuses typically estimates residential population, it represents a nighttime population distribution. In that respect, daytime population in an area may be broadly defined as distribution of population at times other than when they are expected to be at their residences at night which extends the duration from business hours to include the evening hours as well.

Derivation of guidelines for uranium residual radioactive material in soil at the B&T Metals Company site, Columbus, Ohio  

SciTech Connect

Guidelines for uranium residual radioactive material in soil were derived for the B&T Metals Company site in Columbus, Ohio. This site has been identified for remedial action under the US Department of Energy`s (DOE`s) Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program (FUSRAP). Single-nuclide and total-uranium guidelines were derived on the basis of the requirement that following remedial action, the 50-year committed effective dose equivalent to a hypothetical individual living or working in the immediate vicinity of the site should not exceed a dose constraint of 30 mrem/yr for the current use and likely future use scenarios or a dose limit of 100 n-mrem/yr for less likely future use scenarios. The DOE residual radioactive material guideline computer code, RESRAD, was used in this evaluation. RESRAD implements the methodology described in the DOE manual for establishing residual radioactive material guidelines. Three scenarios were considered; each assumed that for a period of 1,000 years following remedial action, the site would be used without radiological restrictions. The three scenarios varied with regard to the type of site use, time spent at the site by the exposed individual, and sources of food and water consumed. The evaluations indicate that the dose constraint of 30 mrem/yr would not be exceeded for uranium (including uranium-234, uranium-235, and uranium-238) within 1,000 years, provided that the soil concentration of total uranium (uranium-234, uranium-235, and uranium-238) at the B&T Metals site did not exceed 1, I 00 pCi/g for Scenario A (industrial worker, current use) or 300 pCi/g for Scenario B (resident with municipal water supply, a likely future use). The dose limit of 100 mrem/yr would not be exceeded at the site if the total uranium concentration of the soil did not exceed 880 pCi/g for Scenario C (resident with an on-site water well, a plausible but unlikely future use).

Christopher Columbus and Culicoides: was C. jamaicensis Edwards, 1922 introduced into the Mediterranean 500 years ago and later re-named C. paolae Boorman 1996?  

PubMed

The biting midge, Culicoides paolae Boorman, described from specimens collected in the extreme south of Italy in 1996, belongs in the subgenus Drymodesmyia. This subgenus was erected by Vargas in 1960 for the so-called Copiosus species group, an assemblage of 22 species endemic to the tropical regions of the New World and, where known, breed in vegetative materials including the decaying leaves (cladodes) and fruits of Central American cacti. The Mexican peoples have utilised these cacti for over 9,000 years; one of these, Opuntia ficus-indica Linnaeus, was brought to Europe by Christopher Columbus following his voyages of discovery. As a taxon C. paolae is very similar to the Central American C. jamaicensis Edwards, 1922 raising the possibility that it (or a closely related species of Drymodesmyia) was introduced into the Mediterranean Region at the time of Columbus, but was (perplexingly) discovered only 500 years later and named C. paolae. The comparison of Sardinian specimens of C. paolae with Panamanian material of C. jamaicensis (housed in the Natural History Museum in London) confirmed the two species to be very similar but unusual differences were noted around the precise distribution of the sensilla coeloconica on the female flagellum. Until it is understood whether these differences represent either intra- or interspecific variation, the question of the possible synonymy of C. paolae must be held in abeyance. PMID:20419690

Barton had recently lost an estimated half a million dollars trading, according to The New York Times. Coincidentally, just a week and a half after the tragedy in Atlanta, the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) released a study condemning the practice of day trading, finding that, of the 4,093 trades in 26 accounts analyzed, "seventy percent of the accounts lost money and were traded in a manner that realized a 100% Risk of Ruin (loss of all funds)." The study concluded, "It is absolutely clear that the average public investor should refrain from short-term trading." This week's In the News looks at the day trading industry and its effectiveness. The eight resources listed provide studies, recent news, background information, and commentary on day trading.

Market day midwives.  

PubMed

In August 1994 in Uganda, the Social Marketing for Change (SOMARC) project invited midwives to counsel clients and sell low-dose oral contraceptives (OCs), condoms, and the progestin-only OCs in local markets. They now sell these contraceptives from vendor stalls in busy markets, which allows clients to speak privately with the midwives. The midwives refer clients to their maternity clinics or to hospitals for other contraceptive methods and reproductive/maternal and child health (MCH) services. All Market Day Midwives have taken a 1-month family planning course and a course in quality of customer service. By the end of March 1994, 17 midwives served 22 marketplaces ranging from rural village markets operating once every 2 weeks to very busy, daily city markets. Some markets have 15 permanent stalls, while other midwives move within markets. Market Day Midwives have been able to add more than 1900 women to the list of women using the OC Pilplan. 65% of the new acceptors had not used any OC before Pilplan. 46% of them would be women considered to be high risk if they were to become pregnant (teenagers, women over 35, and women with many children). These midwives have been successful because they operate where the people are and they provide anonymity. Market Day Midwives have also brought in men who seek them out for family planning/sexually transmitted disease prevention services. They have sold more than 1000 Protector condoms. Another benefit of the market day approach is professional growth of the midwives. They often invest their earnings into new equipment and their private maternity clinics. They have learned the significance of advertising and the value of high-quality customer service. They look to expand into other markets and to integrate MCH products (e.g., oral rehydration) into their contraceptive business. PMID:12345683

Columbus primary total knee replacement: a 2- to 4-year followup of the use of intraoperative navigation-derived data to predict pre and postoperative function.  

PubMed

The purpose of this study was to examine the clinical outcomes associated with the Columbus primary total knee replacement (B. Braun Aesculap, Tuttlingen, Germany), correlate these outcomes with variables measured intraoperatively with the OrthoPilot navigation system (B. Braun Aesculap), and explore the full potential of automating the process of intraoperative data collection. Clinical and functional outcomes at 2.5 years were similar to results reported in previous studies. Correlations were seen between initial mechanical axis deformity and postoperative range of motion as well as between final mechanical axis alignment and the presence of flexion contractures at later followup. It is now possible to potentially stratify particular segments of patients and develop specific intraoperative alignment targets that are most likely to yield positive clinical and functional outcomes.

Barriers and Facilitators to Learning and Performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation in Neighborhoods With Low Bystander Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Prevalence and High Rates of Cardiac Arrest in Columbus, OH.  

PubMed

Background- Residents who live in neighborhoods that are primarily black, Latino, or poor are more likely to have an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest, less likely to receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and less likely to survive. No prior studies have been conducted to understand the contributing factors that may decrease the likelihood of residents learning and performing CPR in these neighborhoods. The goal of this study was to identify barriers and facilitators to learning and performing CPR in 3 low-income, high-risk, and predominantly black neighborhoods in Columbus, OH. Methods and Results- Community-Based Participatory Research approaches were used to develop and conduct 6 focus groups in conjunction with community partners in 3 target high-risk neighborhoods in Columbus, OH, in January to February 2011. Snowball and purposeful sampling, done by community liaisons, was used to recruit participants. Three reviewers analyzed the data in an iterative process to identify recurrent and unifying themes. Three major barriers to learning CPR were identified and included financial, informational, and motivational factors. Four major barriers were identified for performing CPR and included fear of legal consequences, emotional issues, knowledge, and situational concerns. Participants suggested that family/self-preservation, emotional, and economic factors may serve as potential facilitators in increasing the provision of bystander CPR. Conclusions- The financial cost of CPR training, lack of information, and the fear of risking one's own life must be addressed when designing a community-based CPR educational program. Using data from the community can facilitate improved design and implementation of CPR programs. PMID:24021699

International Women's Day Celebrated  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

With historical origins dating back to the early 20th century, International Women's Day has been officially celebrated since 1977, when the United Nations made a special declaration setting the date in early March every year. This year saw a flurry of important events around the world that coincided with March 8th, including ceremonies designed to honor women of national and international importance in many countries and a number of valuable statements made on behalf regarding the cause of gender equality. A number of prominent women also gave speeches this Monday, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate Shirin Ebadi, who noted that "The rights of women and democracy are one and the same." A study released this past Monday by the Inter-Parliamentary Union noted that women make up a record-breaking 15.3 percent of the world's lawmakers. The country with the greatest percentage of female lawmakers is Rwanda (49 percent), followed closely by Sweden, with 45 percent. While there was much to celebrate, there were also some ominous trends noted by lawmakers and officials, including the rapid and disturbing increase of young women with HIV around the world in the past few years, a fact noted by UN Secretary General Kofi Annan during his remarks to a special UN session.The first site will take visitors to a news piece from the Baltimore Sun that contains Shirin Ebadi's remarks made on International Women's Day. The second link leads to a news piece from Al-Jazeera that discusses the rapid increase of HIV among young women, a public health issue that is becoming endemic in certain parts of the developing world. The third link leads to an article from the Cornell (University) Daily Sun that offers details on a celebration honoring women on their campus who had worked to improve the situation of women locally, nationally, and internationally. The fourth link will take visitors to the rather comprehensive website for International Women's Day 2004 created by the United Nations. The site contains information on the events sponsored by the UN and its Women Watch website, which serves as a clearinghouse for resources on gender equality and empowerment of women.

The day of women.  

PubMed

March, 1994, was celebrated as Women's Month in the Philippines, with a focus on women's health. The theme chosen was Me, Too, a response to the ideal of feminine martyrdom. The intended message was that it is acceptable for women to look after themselves first, because only this way could they look after the other people in their lives. The Woman Who is Okey is defined as the woman who looks after her health and who practices self-care. The major health problems of women include cancer of the breast and cervix; reproductive tract infections; HIV/AIDS; poor nutrition, exacerbated by pregnancy and lactation; and increased incidence of cardiovascular disease linked to an increase in women smokers. The Woman Who is Okey is a woman who: carries out breast self examination each month, submits to a pap smear examination every year, does not smoke, spaces her pregnancies by 2-3 year intervals, knows how to protect herself from HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases, visits a health center regularly for prenatal check-ups and other health services, and meets her hygienic and fitness needs. The campaign was broadened to include rape, violence, sexual harassment, and discrimination and exploitation of women. The activities of the Department of Health (DOH) during March 8, International Women's Day, were coordinated with those planned by women's groups spearheaded by the National Commission on the Role of Filipino Women (NCRFW). The DOH set up a permanent Women's Center in government hospitals throughout the country and began to institutionalize assistance to women who are victims of violence, including rape. The national celebration held in Manila was a day-long program organized by the NCRFW, in which close to 18,000 women participated from all political organizations. President Fidel V. Ramos was the keynote speaker. PMID:12288259

Valentine's Day and Chocolate  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

While the exact origins of Valentine's Day are often disputed, the link between chocolate and the modern incarnation of this particular holiday are undeniable. Recent data released in a report by the business information group Datamonitor revealed that the global consumption of chocolate totaled approximately $42.2 billion worth of chocolate-based consumable goods. It will not come as a surprise to anyone who has visited the British Isles to learn that out of the $42.2 billion, Britons spent $19.2 billion, and made almost one in three chocolate purchases, trumping all of the world's nations. The report from Datamonitor also noted that tastes in chocolate vary widely across Europe, noting that, "The French prefer simplicity and purity of taste, without additional flavors and with little sugar, while Italian tastes are geared toward the more indulgent and sophisticated end of the market." Additionally, the report also indicates that the United States continues to dominate the global chocolate confectionary market, with Americans spending $2.4 billion on boxed chocolates alone in 2001.The first link is to the recent report on global chocolate sales and consumption released by the Datamonitor group. The second link leads to a well-thought site from Exploratorium Magazine, which features interactive essays on chocolate production, the potential health benefits of chocolate, and a visit to a "chocolate party" in the heart of the Amazon. The third link will take visitors to a site that deals with the history of chocolate, beginning with the first use of chocolate (as a drink) in 750 AD. The fourth link takes visitors to a site featuring inventive and fun ways to use chocolate in recipes, such as those for chocolate banana bread and chocolate peanut butter pie.

Young Children's Full-Day Patterns of Cortisol Production on Child Care Days  

PubMed Central

Objective To examine toddlers’ full-day patterns of cortisol production on child care days and non–child care days, with a particular focus on whether the mid-afternoon elevations at child care persist into the evening or decrease to typical levels observed on non–child care days. Design A prospective observational study. Setting Four child care centers in a suburban, mid-Atlantic area. Participants Forty-two children aged 16 to 24 months attending full-day child care. Main Exposure Full-day child care. Outcome Measure Salivary cortisol samples obtained at wake-up, mid-morning, mid-afternoon, and bedtime for children on 2 child care days and 2 non–child care days. Results Children showed different patterns of cortisol production on child care days compared with non–child care days (?42=18.21, P=.001). Child care days were characterized by an afternoon increase in cortisol levels (unlike non–child care days) and decreases to bedtime values that were comparable with levels on non–child care days. Conclusion Results suggest that the effects of child care on children’s cortisol production are time limited across the day.

Franco, the Early Days  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As this meeting is to honour Franco on the occasion of his 60 birthday I thought that it might be fitting to report on some early reminiscences of Franco of the pre-IBA days. Franco first came to Groningen in 1972 for a seminar on the invitation of Alex Lande. Alex and Franco had known each other from the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, where they had collaborated. In 1972 both Alex and I had been freshly appointed at Groningen, Alex on the Faculty of the Theory Department, and I myself as the new director of the KVI. A position for a Senior Scientist in theory had been newly created at the KVI with the aim to establish a strong in-house theory group. Needless to say that everyone who met Franco was deeply impressed by him. We thus were extremely happy to be able to entice Franco to join the KVI as a Senior Scientist in 1974, after he had spent a few weeks in Groningen in 1973 as a visitor. So characteristic of Franco he immediately took a strong interest in the experimental program as evidenced by the following publications on the weak-coupling description of three-nucleon pickup in the (p, ?) reaction [1] and the spreading width of deep-hole states [2]. Both topics appear to have maintained their actuality, looking at the many papers that have been published since on these and related topics. But this brief citation of the "other Franco" would not do justice to him without mentioning the diverse palette of Franco's work also listed in the KVI 1974 Annual Report, reflecting Franco's extremely broad and diversified scientific interests.

Accuracy of implant alignment and early results after minimally invasive vs conventional OrthoPilot-navigated Columbus TKA.  

PubMed

The goal of this study was to evaluate potential risks and benefits of minimally invasive vs conventional approaches in navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in 50 patients. Preoperatively, no statistically significant differences between the two groups were found for deformity, range of motion (ROM), clinical scores, and ligament stability in the native joint or after prosthesis implantation measurements intraoperatively. Postoperatively, there were no significant differences between the two groups for deformity and clinical scores. In contrast, significantly less pain according to VAS measures and quicker improvements in ROM during the first 10 postoperative days were experienced in the minimally invasive group. Complication rates were similar in both groups. According to our results, minimally invasive navigated TKA is characterized by high implant positioning accuracy, soft tissue management quality, and complication rates similar to those for conventional approaches. Compared with the conventional approach, minimally invasive TKA provides superior functional results and less pain in the early postoperative period. PMID:17983109

High-level multireference methods in the quantum-chemistry program system COLUMBUS : analytic MR-CISD and MR-AQCC gradients and MR-AQCC-LRT for excited states, GUGA spin-orbit CI, and parallel CI density.  

SciTech Connect

Development of several new computational approaches within the framework of multi-reference ab initio molecular electronic structure methodology and their implementation in the COLUMBUS program system are reported. These new features are: calculation of the analytical MR-CI gradient for excited states based on state-averaged MCSCF orbitals, the extension of the MR-ACPF/AQCC methods to excited states in the framework of linear-response theory, spin-orbit CI for molecules containing heavy atoms and the development of a massively-parallel code for the computation of the one- and two-particle density matrix elements. Illustrative examples are given for each of these cases.

Description of Day-to-Day Variability in IRI  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The International Reference Ionosphere (IRI) describes the monthly average behavior of Earth's ionosphere based on most of the accessible and reliable ground and space observations of ionospheric parameters. IRI is doing an excellent job in accurately representing these average conditions as countless comparisons with additional data have shown and as acknowledged by the fact that international organizations (COSPAR, URSI, ISO, ECSS) have accepted IRI as their ionosphere standard. However, with our ever-increasing dependence on space technology it has become important to go beyond the monthly averages and to provide a description of the day-to-day variability of the ionosphere. We will review past and ongoing efforts to provide IRI users with a quantitative description of ionospheric variability depending on altitude, time of day, time of year, latitude and solar and magnetic activity. We will present new results from an analysis of ISIS and Alouette topside sounder data. The IRI team is also pursuing the development of an IRI Real-Time (IRI-RT) that uses assimilative algorithms or updating procedures to combine IRI with real-time data for a more accurate picture of current ionospheric conditions. We will review the status of these activities and report on latest results.

Ambient Influenza and Avian Influenza Virus during Dust Storm Days and Background Days  

PubMed Central

Background The spread of influenza and highly pathogenic avian influenza (H5N1) presents a significant threat to human health. Avian influenza outbreaks in downwind areas of Asian dust storms (ADS) suggest that viruses might be transported by dust storms. Objectives We developed a technique to measure ambient influenza and avian influenza viruses. We then used this technique to measure concentrations of these viruses on ADS days and background days, and to assess the relationships between ambient influenza and avian influenza viruses, and air pollutants. Methods A high-volume air sampler was used in parallel with a filter cassette to evaluate spiked samples and unspiked samples. Then, air samples were monitored during ADS seasons using a filter cassette coupled with a real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) assay. Air samples were monitored during ADS season (1 January to 31 May 2006). Results We successfully quantified ambient influenza virus using the filtration/real-time qPCR method during ADS days and background days. To our knowledge, this is the first report describing the concentration of influenza virus in ambient air. In both the spiked and unspiked samples, the concentration of influenza virus sampled using the filter cassette was higher than that using the high-volume sampler. The concentration of ambient influenza A virus was significantly higher during the ADS days than during the background days. Conclusions Our data imply the possibility of long-range transport of influenza virus.

Sun-Earth Day 2004: Venus Transit  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The NASA Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum annually promotes an event called Sun-Earth Day. For Sun-Earth Day 2004 SECEF has selected the transit of Venus as the theme. Opportunities are available to prepare for the viewing of this event. The event last occurred in 1882, so no one alive today has ever witnessed the transit of Venus. Through parallax measurements, it allowed astronomers to define, for the first time, a fairly accurate number for the A.U. and therefore, the distance to all the other known planets. The website http://sunearth.gsfc.nasa.gov/sunearthday has been developed to provide the necessary resources and opportunities for participation in Sun-Earth Day. This is the fourth year that we offer new and exciting space science. This year in particular the content area crosses all of space sciences offering activities and resources for every classroom and museum event. The goal is to involve as much of the student population and the public in this event as possible and to help them understand the immense importance and excitement surrounding this and previous transits. Through engaging activities focused on US and world history, technology, math, and astronomy, classrooms and museums can create their own event or participate in one of the opportunities we make available. Comparisons of Venus with the Earth and Mars, calculations of the distances to nearby stars, and the use of transits to identify extra-solar planets will all add to the excitement of this cosmic occurrence.

Surgical Resident for a Day  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Students act as surgical residents for the day. Working in teams, they use surgical instruments to complete tasks that are inside of a box, hidden from direct view. They are able to see inside of the box with the help of a "laparoscope" (webcam and flashlight). This engaging activity shows students one application of engineered medical instrumentation and gives them first-hand experience in seeing how form fits function. They also learn that an engineer's job does not end with a finished product because s/he must train others to use the device correctly.

Present-day Crustal Deformation of Taiwan  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Taiwan, seated at the junction of the Manila and the Ryukyu subduction systems, is a classical case of the ongoing arc-continent collision due to convergence between the Eurasian and the Philippine Sea plates. We analyzed 601 GPS observations in Taiwan to understand the kinematics of present-day crustal deformation of the Taiwan mountain belt. Horizontal GPS velocities, relative to the Chinese continental margin station, S01R, represent a fan-shaped pattern and gradually decrease northwestward from ~82 mm/yr in SE Taiwan to nearly no deformation in NW coastal area. Directions of the horizontal velocities are dominantly toward NW in central Taiwan and the clockwise rotation and counterclockwise rotation are occurring in northern and southern Taiwan, respectively. For stations between the Chishan fault and the western flank of the southern Central Range in southern Taiwan, most station velocities are consistent (51.9 ± 6.6 mm/yr) and, from east to west, the azimuths change gradually from 277° to 247°. In northern Taiwan, magnitudes of northwestward velocities are 0.3-7.8 mm/yr in NW part of this area and vectors of 9.3-41.2 mm/yr from 53° to 146° occur in the Ilan area. Three significant features are characterized based on the analyses of velocities and 3-D block modeling results. First, tectonic block rotations are mostly concentrated on the northern Taiwan, which correspond to the transition from the Ryukyu subduction to the Taiwan collision zone. The roll-back of Ryukyu trench and the opening of Okinawa trough are probably superposed on the arc-continent collision-induced rotation in northern Taiwan mountain belt. Second, block translations are mainly occurred in southern Taiwan. The interaction between the Peikang basement high and the westward propagation of the accretionary wedge results in the material across southern Taiwan to move toward WSW, sub-parallel to the southern edge of the continental margin, via the strain partitioning along several major structures. Third, high slip rate deficits are mainly derived along the active faults in the Ilan area and along the northern Longitudinal Valley fault, which may correspond to the areas with high earthquake potential.

EPA sets agenda for final days  

SciTech Connect

Before the Clinton Administration takes over, the Environmental Protection Agency has some unfinished business it wants to wrap up. The agenda for the last weeks of the Bush Administration includes completing work on proposed rules on reformulated gasoline, accelerated phaseout of ozone-depleting substances, field tests of biotechnology-derived pesticides, and safer alternatives to currently used pesticides. In a mid-November memo, EPA administrator William K. Reilly told his staff, We have 71 days left until the inauguration. Let's use them as vigorously and productively as possible. In focusing the agenda, he says, we should close on those policies and Institutional reforms that are near completion, and take actions required to meet statutory and judicial deadlines and to prepare the agency to respond to challenges it will face all too soon. Those areas include a pending decision by the Supreme Court on whether to hear an appeal of a lower court's ruling against EPA's de minimis interpretation of the Delaney clause barring cancer-causing pesticide residues from processed foods. If the lower court's decision is upheld, EPA will be required to change its residue tolerances. Other targets include a rule on Resource Conservation and Recovery Act corrective action management units and a list of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes for chlorofluorocarbons and halons.

Recovery of neuromuscular junction morphology following 16 days of spaceflight.  

PubMed

It has previously been established that spaceflight elicits alterations in the morphology of the neuromuscular system that includes expansion of the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) and myofiber atrophy. The purpose of this study was to determine the capacity of the neuromuscular system to recover from spaceflight-induced modifications upon return to normal gravity. Soleus muscles were obtained from rats participating in the 16-day Neurolab space shuttle mission at 1 day and 14 days after returning to Earth: solei were also taken at the same time points from ground-based control rats. Cytofluorescent techniques, coupled with confocal microscopy, were used to assess NMJ morphology. Histochemistry, in conjunction with phase contrast microscopy, was employed to examine myofiber size and type. Results indicate that 1 day after landing both pre- and postsynaptic stained areas of the NMJ were significantly (P < or = 0.05) larger in the spaceflight group than in controls. Moreover, significant myofiber atrophy was demonstrated in animals subjected to 0 gravity. By 14 days following return to the Earth, however, NMJ stained areas and muscle fiber size were no longer different from control values at that same interval. These results suggest that the neuromuscular system possesses a robust capacity to recover from spaceflight-induced perturbations upon return to normal gravitational influences. PMID:11746714

Day-to-day variability in the development of plasma bubbles associated with geomagnetic disturbances  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The development of equatorial ionospheric irregularities into large-scale ionospheric plasma bubbles continues to be an active area for scientific investigations. In this paper, we present simultaneous OI 630.0-nm emission all-sky imaging observations carried out at the Astrophysics National Laboratory (LNA), Brazopolis (22.5°S, 45.6°W, altitude 1860 m) and ionospheric sounding observations carried out at Palmas (10.2°S, 48.2°W located close to the magnetic equator) and Sao Jose dos Campos (23.2°S, 45.9°W located under the southern crest of equatorial ionospheric anomaly, close to Brazopolis), Brazil, to study the day-to-day variability in the development of ionospheric plasma bubbles during both geomagnetically disturbed and quiet periods in September-October 2002. Also, we present simultaneous complementary phase fluctuation (ROT) data obtained from the global position system (GPS) meridional chain operated by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistic (IBGE). On the three nights studied in the present investigation (one geomagnetically quiet and two geomagnetically disturbed), it has been observed that the geomagnetic disturbances, during this spring equinox period, have a strong effect on the generation and development of ionospheric plasma bubbles.

Sidereal and Solar Day JS Model  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Sidereal and Solar Day Javascript Model illustrates the difference between the sidereal and solar day. The planets of our solar system both orbit around Sun and rotate on their axis. These two rotations allow for multiple definitions of what a day is. The sidereal day is the day according to the stars. It is the time it takes for a point on a planet facing a particular star to then face it again. On Earth, this time is 23 hours and 56 minutes. The unit of time called a solar day is the time it takes for a point on a planet facing Sun to then face Sun again. On Earth, this time is 24 hours. The difference between the sidereal and solar day is due to the orbital motion of the planet. For the planets with their orbital motion in the same direction as their rotation (Mercury, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune), the solar day is longer than the sidereal day. For Venus, the only planet with retrograde rotation, the sidereal day is longer than the solar day. This simulation shows the difference between the sidereal and solar day by showing the orbit and rotation of a planet (blue) around sun (orange). It uses an orange arrow to represent where Sun would be seen in the sky relative to the background stars. Users can toggle between the geocentric and heliocentric point of view. The parameters are initially set to model a general direct rotation scenario. The user can also select a planet with a retrograde rotation, and the Earth-Sun system can also be shown which simulates the exact the orbit and rotation rates of Earth. The Sidereal and Solar Day JS Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) version 5. It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.

Evolution of an active psychogeriatric day hospital.  

PubMed Central

A geriatric day hospital was established as part of the psychogeriatric unit of the Royal Ottawa Hospital. While initially this day hospital was integrated with day hospital programs of other units, it became apparent that a separate facility was desirable. The activities and programs of the psychogeriatric day hospital, run by one registered nurse, were integrated with those of the geriatric inpatient unit. It was found to be advantageous for inpatients and day hospital patients to share the same physical facilities. The majority of day hospital patients came from the inpatient unit; almost all had affective disorders. The emphasis was on reintegration into the community. During the 1st year of operation there were 75 patients in the program; only 3 needed admission to the inpatient unit and 1 was readmitted after discharge.

Randomised controlled trial of day patient versus inpatient psychiatric treatment.  

PubMed Central

OBJECTIVE--To assess the proportion of acutely ill psychiatric patients who can be treated in a day hospital and compare the outcome of day patient and inpatient treatment. DESIGN--Prospective randomised controlled trial of day patient versus inpatient treatment after exclusion of patients precluded by severity of illness or other factors from being treated as day patients. All three groups assessed at three and 12 months. SETTING--Teaching hospital serving small socially deprived inner city area. Day hospital designed to take acute admissions because of few beds. PATIENTS--175 Patients were considered, of whom 73 could not be allocated. Of the remaining 102 patients, 51 were allocated to each treatment setting but only 89 became established in treatment--namely, 41 day patients and 48 inpatients. 73 Of these 89 patients were reassessed at three months and 70 at one year. INTERVENTIONS--Standard day patient and inpatient treatment. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES--Discharge from hospital and return to previous level of social functioning; reduction of psychiatric symptoms, abnormal behaviour, and burden on relatives. RESULTS--33 Of 48 inpatients were discharged at three months compared with 17 of 41 day patients. But at one year 9 of 48 inpatients and three of 41 day patients were in hospital. 18 Of 35 day patients and 16 of 39 inpatients were at their previous level of social functioning at one year. The only significant difference at three months was a greater improvement in social role performance in the inpatients. At one year there was no significant difference between day patients and inpatients in present state examination summary scores and social role performance, burden, or behaviour. CONCLUSIONS--Roughly 40% of all acutely ill patients presenting for admission to a psychiatric unit may be treated satisfactorily in a well staffed day hospital. The outcome of treatment is similar to that of inpatient care but might possibly reduce readmissions. The hospital costs seem to be similar but further research is required to assess the costs in terms of extra demands on relatives, general practitioners, and other community resources.

Multi-day rainfall trends over the Iberian Peninsula  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In order to analyze the effects of the duration of precipitation events, trends in extreme rainfall over the Iberian Peninsula (IP) for multi-day extreme precipitation events (1 to 7 days) were evaluated from records of 52 observatories regularly distributed over Iberia with no missing data for the common period 1958-2004. Two approaches were used: first, the nonparametric Mann-Kendall test together with the Sen method, and second, a parametric test based on the statistical theory of extreme values, involving time-dependent parameters to account for possible temporal changes in the frequency distribution. It was found that, in winter, there were significant negative trends for a great part of the Iberian Peninsula, but significant positive trends for the southeast over areas that shrank as the number of days considered for the precipitation event increased. Spring also showed negative trends for a great part of the IP but with a major area of positive trend over the northeast that remained unchanged when considering the maxima of from 1 to 7 days of rainfall. Autumn showed a bipolar spatial pattern, with the west being positive and the east negative.

Maximum Sunspot Numbers and Active Days  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Parameters associated with solar minimum have been studied to relate them to solar activity at solar maximum so that one could possibly predict behaviors of an upcoming solar cycle. The number of active days has been known as a reliable indicator of solar activity around solar minimum. Active days are days with sunspots reported on the solar disk. In this work, we have explored the relationship between the sunspot numbers at solar maximum and the characteristics of the monthly number of active days. Specifically, we have statistically examined how the maximum monthly sunspot number of a given solar cycle is correlated with the slope of the linear relationship between monthly sunspot numbers and the monthly number of active days for the corresponding solar cycle. We have calculated the linear correlation coefficient r and the Spearman rank-order correlation coefficient rs for data sets prepared under various conditions. Even though marginal correlations are found, they turn out to be insufficiently significant (r ~ 0.3). Nonetheless, we have confirmed that the slope of the linear relationship between monthly sunspot numbers and the monthly number of active days is less steep when solar cycles belonging to the "Modern Maximum" are considered compared with rests of solar cycles. We conclude, therefore, that the slope of the linear relationship between monthly sunspot numbers and the monthly number of active days is indeed dependent on the solar activity at its maxima, but that this simple relationship should be insufficient as a valid method to predict the following solar activity amplitude.

Naked Eye Sidereal and Solar Day  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Naked Eye Sidereal and Solar Day model illustrates the difference between the sidereal and solar day. This simulation shows the view from the Earth as one would observe in the night sky. The sidereal day is the day according to the stars. It is the time it takes for a particular star to rotate around the Earth (from the Earth's perspetive) and end up in the same part of the sky as it started. On Earth, this time is 23 hours and 56 minutes. The unit of time called a solar day is the time it takes for the Sun to get back to the same place in the sky as it was before. On Earth, this time is 24 hours. This simulation shows the difference between the sidereal and solar day by showing the motion of the stars (the zodiacal symbols) and the sun (orange). It uses an orange arrow to represent where Sun would be seen in the sky relative to the background stars. A particular star is denoted by a red arrow. Users canalso add a visual of the Moon to see the difference between the sidereal month and the synodic month. The Naked Eye Sidereal and Solar Day model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_astronomy_SiderealSolarNakedEye.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.

INTRODUCTION: The early days of the journal  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When he discovered that I was an assistant editor in the 1960s, Alun Beddoe asked me to write a brief article about the early days of Physics in Medicine and Biology in order to `lighten up' the 50th anniversary issue. Forty years is a long time ago and I did not keep a diary, so all I can do is to recall a few memories and reminiscences and hope that they are reasonably accurate and of some interest. Medical physics in the UK started expanding in the years after World War II, partly because of the number of hospital physicists recruited after the inauguration of the National Health Service in 1948, and also because of the introduction of high energy generators used in radiotherapy (2 MV van de Graaffs, linacs, cobalt-60 teletherapy etc), radioactive isotopes, and increasing concern about radiation protection in such areas as diagnostic radiology. As they perceived that this would give rise to an increasing number of papers in this area of science, in 1956 the publishers Taylor & Francis launched a new quarterly journal entitled Physics in Medicine and Biology (PMB) in collaboration with the Hospital Physicists' Association (HPA). For various reasons the publication date of an issue began to lag further and further behind the date on the front cover. The journal was not gaining sufficient subscribers and was failing to attract many authors, and there was a serious danger that it was going to cease publication. The HPA Executive Committee discussed whether to make the purchase of PMB compulsory for all HPA members, but decided against it. As the great majority of papers on medical physics at that time were still published in a wide range of other scientific or medical journals, it was intended, as a service to readers of PMB, that about a quarter of each issue should be devoted to abstracts of selected articles published in other journals. By the 1960s there was an average of well over 200 abstracts in each quarterly issue, written specially for PMB by a team of expert and hard-working volunteers. Over 100 journals were abstracted, many of which were foreign and difficult to obtain. This service, organized by the HPA Abstracts Sub-Committee with Walter Langmead as the first of several Abstracts Editors, was no mean undertaking, but was well worth the effort. By providing information of immediate and practical use to readers, it encouraged them to purchase their personal copies, and thereby helped PMB to survive during its early years. Apart from the advertisements, other useful features that appeared in the journal included correspondence, brief contributions that went under the headings of scientific, technical or instrumental notes, book reviews, lists of forthcoming events, proceedings of relevant scientific conferences, and obituaries. Nevertheless, the success of a scientific journal depends in the end on the quality of its submitted or commissioned articles. In 1961 the decision was taken to ask Professor Joseph Rotblat to be the editor. In those days Taylor & Francis were responsible for the publicity, the distribution, liaison with the printers, and all financial matters. The editorial work, including correspondence with authors and referees, preparing the papers for the printer and proof reading, was the responsibility of the editor. Realizing that he could not do this single handed, the new editor enlisted the help of three medical physicists as assistant editors. Under the energetic and inspired leadership of Rotblat the journal began to prosper. By producing an issue every two months instead of three months, the actual date of publication soon caught up with the date on the front cover. As the publication time decreased, more and more medical physicists decided to send their papers to PMB, and the editor managed to persuade a number of experts to write specially commissioned review articles. Since then PMB has never looked back. The editing arrangements were as follows. Authors were instructed to send their papers to the editor at St Bartholomew's Hospital Medical School. He (or usually his secretary)

Regime shift of snow days in Switzerland  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The number of days with a snow depth above a certain threshold is the key factor for winter tourism in an Alpine country like Switzerland. An investigation of 34 long-term stations between 200 and 1800 m asl (above sea level) going back for at least the last 60 years (1948-2007) shows an unprecedented series of low snow winters in the last 20 years. The signal is uniform despite high regional differences. A shift detection analysis revealed a significant step-like decrease in snow days at the end of the 1980's with no clear trend since then. This abrupt change resulted in a loss of 20% to 60% of the total snow days. The stepwise increase of the mean winter temperature at the end of the 1980's and its close correlation with the snow day anomalies corroborate the sensitivity of the mid-latitude winter to the climate change induced temperature increase.

Recent studies indicate that patients experience pain after day surgery for a longer period than previously known. This requires verification. This was a prospective, descriptive correlational study. A convenience sample of 298 day surgery patients undergoing various surgical procedures was asked to report pain intensity and its interference with daily function 48 hours, seven days and three months after day surgery. Correlation and regression analyses were performed. On a NRS, 55% (n=230) reported pain (?4) 48 hours after surgery, as did 43% (n=213) at seven days. Pain interfered with normal activities at ?4 NRS at 48 hours and at seven days, after which it decreased.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a community project that brings the voices of the global astronomy community to the public over the Internet. We are publishing 1 podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of 2009. The podcast is made available through an RSS feed. The podcast episodes are recorded and listened to by people around the world. Topics covered include astronomy inspired art and literature, historic discoveries, spacecraft, IYA events as well as interviews and discussions about the science of astronomy. Some podcasts have a specific topic or theme based on The 365 Days of Astronomy Calendar, a daily calendar of astronomical events, themes and ideas created by the IYA. Although all the episodes will have a common intro and outtro that ties into the overall theme, each episode is completely different. Are you willing to contribute to the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast?We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for our daily podcast. Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of 2009. We have a calendar of astronomical events to give ideas but the podcasts can be about virtually any astronomical topic. We are seeking a wide range of contributions, from simple concepts or how-tos to more in-depth discussions of complex concepts. We are expecting a wide range of contributions, from simple at-home "first light” podcasts to highly polished and professional recordings. We hope to sign up a wide range of participants including professional astronomers, K-12 classrooms, college students, science bloggers, podcasters and media companies.

Risk of ectopic pregnancy following day-5 embryo transfer compared with day-3 transfer.  

PubMed

The incidence of ectopic pregnancy after IVF is increased approximately 2.5-5-fold compared with natural conceptions; however, the aetiology for this increased risk remains unclear. One proposed practice change to decrease the incidence of ectopic pregnancy is blastocyst embryo transfer on day 5 rather than cleavage-stage embryo transfer on day 3. A retrospective cohort study was conducted to compare the risk of ectopic pregnancy following fresh day-5 embryo transfer with day-3 embryo transfer among women who underwent IVF and achieved pregnancy from 1998 to 2011. There were 13,654 eligible pregnancies; 277 were ectopic. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy was 2.1% among day-3 pregnancies and 1.6% among day-5 pregnancies. The adjusted risk ratio for ectopic pregnancy from day-5 compared with day-3 transfer was 0.71 (95% confidence interval 0.46-1.10). Although this analysis included 13,654 cycles, with a two-sided significance level of 0.05, it had only 21.9% power to detect a difference between the low incidence of ectopic pregnancy among both day-3 and day-5 transfers. In conclusion, this study was not able to demonstrate a difference in the risk of ectopic pregnancy among day-3 compared with day-5 transfers. PMID:23953586

It happened to be Pi Day, or March 14th, which is the closest calendar approximation of 3.14 (or 3/14). The exact origins of Pi Day are lost in the misty haze of the late 1980s, but the Exploratorium in San Francisco first began its annual celebration of the event in 1987. The date also happens to be Albert Einstein's birthday, so often there are joint celebrations on this auspicious day. The events of Pi Day usually involve recitation contests to see who can memorize pi to the most places, pie-eating contests (insert homonym joke here), and the sharing of haikus that feature pi in some fashion. Speaking about the events at the University of Alberta, Marcel Ball remarked, "It's just a way to celebrate our geekiness." Others have found a different type of communion with pi, such as Akira Harguchi, a mental-health counselor in Japan, who noted, "What I am aiming at is not just memorizing figures. I am thrilled by seeking a story in pi."The first link will take users to a news article from this Monday's Seattle Post-Intelligencer which provides a bit of background information on Pi Day. The second link will take users to a piece from the Ottawa Citizen that gives information on how March 14th is celebrated across Canada. Moving along, the third link leads to the Exploratorium's Pi Day Page, which includes a number of fun activities, including a primer on cutting pi by way of string, scissors, and tape. The fourth link leads to the official Pi Day website, which features e-cards, a calendar of events, and discussion boards that include "I Love Pi Because...." The fifth link whisks users away to the Math Forum at Drexel University's "About Pi" area, which answers a number of questions, such as "What is pi"" and "What is it for?" Finally, the last link contains the first ten thousand digits of pi.

Day-Case Laparoscopic Nissen Fundoplication  

PubMed Central

Introduction: For day-case laparoscopic surgery to be successful, patient selection is of the utmost importance. This study aimed to assess the feasibility of day-case laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication and to identify factors that may lead to readmission and overstay. Methods: A retrospective review of all patients who underwent day-case laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication over a 4-year period (2006 through 2010) was undertaken. Patient age, social circumstances, and other demographics were recorded as well as any comorbidities and ASA score. The primary endpoint measured was rate of readmission and overstay. Results: A total of 72 patients fulfilled the inclusion criteria for day-case surgery. Five patients (6.94%) required admission immediately following the procedure, ie, overstayed or were readmitted. The rates were 1.38% (P=.05, CI 95%) for readmission and 5.55% (P=.05, CI 95%) for overstay. Six (8.33%) patients were classified as ASA III, and 3 (50%) were readmitted or overstayed. Conclusion: Day-case laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is a feasible, safe option. The authors conclude that ASA score of III and increasing age correlate with an increasing incidence of overstay and readmission. Therefore, we would recommend the use of integrated pathways and advanced planning to reduce these rates.

Venus Length-of-Day Variations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Since 2004 we have been monitoring the instantaneous spin state of Venus with the goals of measuring the precession of the rotation axis and of quantifying daily, seasonal, and secular changes in length-of-day. We use the Goldstone and Green Bank Telescopes for these observations. The spin period of Venus is thought to be set by a delicate balance between solid-body tides and atmospheric torques that must vary as insolation and orbital parameters change [Bills 2005]. Our measurements to date reveal length-of-day (LOD) variations of 50 ppm. None of the models can be reconciled with the Magellan 500-day-average spin period of 243.0185 +/- 0.0001 days [Davies et al 1992], nor with a 16-year-average estimate of 243.023 +/- 0.002 days [Mueller et al 2012], nor with any other constant spin period. With our nominal solution we can rule out a constant spin period with over 99.9% confidence. When allowances are made for uncertainties in spin axis orientation and instantaneous spin measurement epochs, the confidence is reduced but remains higher than 99%. We attribute the LOD variations primarily to angular momentum exchange between the atmosphere and solid planet. Because there are so few constraints on the internal dynamical structure of the Venusian atmosphere, a time history of atmospheric angular momentum changes can be used to address questions related to the dynamics of the atmosphere, including its super-rotation, and climatic variations.

Alternate-day dosing with statins.  

PubMed

The duration of the cholesterol-lowering effect of statins is considerably longer than the duration of the pharmacokinetic half-life of these drugs. The long duration of pharmacologic effects provides the rational for the efficacy of intermittent dosing that provides nearly the equivalent low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reduction compared with daily dosing. Review of studies comparing alternate-day dosing with daily dosing of statins indicates that the magnitude of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reduction with alternate-day dosing is nearly the same, with obvious cost savings. It is possible that the adverse effects of statins, such as myalgia or diabetes, may be related to the cumulative amount of drug ingested over time, and if so, the adverse effects may be decreased by alternate-day dosing.

Hot days induced by precipitation deficits at the global scale  

PubMed Central

Global warming increases the occurrence probability of hot extremes, and improving the predictability of such events is thus becoming of critical importance. Hot extremes have been shown to be induced by surface moisture deficits in some regions. In this study, we assess whether such a relationship holds at the global scale. We find that wide areas of the world display a strong relationship between the number of hot days in the regions’ hottest month and preceding precipitation deficits. The occurrence probability of an above-average number of hot days is over 70% after precipitation deficits in most parts of South America as well as the Iberian Peninsula and Eastern Australia, and over 60% in most of North America and Eastern Europe, while it is below 30–40% after wet conditions in these regions. Using quantile regression analyses, we show that the impact of precipitation deficits on the number of hot days is asymmetric, i.e. extreme high numbers of hot days are most strongly influenced. This relationship also applies to the 2011 extreme event in Texas. These findings suggest that effects of soil moisture-temperature coupling are geographically more widespread than commonly assumed.

Reducing 30-day readmissions: health literacy strategies.

The imperatives of the Affordable Care Act to reduce 30-day readmissions present challenges and opportunities for nurse administrators. The literature suggests success in reducing readmissions through enhancing patient-centered discharge processes, focusing on medication reconciliation, improving coordination with community-based providers, and effective patient self-management of their disease and treatment. Evidence-based interventions addressing low health literacy, when used with all patients, hold promise to promote understanding and self-management. Strategies addressing low health literacy aimed at reducing 30-day readmissions are identified and discussed. PMID:23892303

What makes a day at work extraordinary.  

PubMed

To prevent high rates of nurse burnout and staff turnover, hospitals must create environments that fulfil nurses' expectations and foster positive emotional responses to their job. To gain an understanding of what triggers positive emotional responses, a group of nurses were asked to recall an 'extraordinary day'. Their descriptions were analysed to identify these triggers and to determine whether their perceptions of what makes an extraordinary day change over time. This article discusses the results of the study and suggests that enabling nurses to describe meaningful experiences is a step toward learning what it is they value. PMID:23705544

Ionospheric Day-to-Day Variability Around the Whole Heliosphere Interval in 2008  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ionospheric F2 peak electron densities (NmF2) measured at ten ionosonde stations have been analyzed to investigate ionospheric day-to-day variability around the Whole Heliosphere Interval (WHI) in 2008 (Day of Year (DOY) 50 - 140). The ionosonde data showed that there was significant global day-to-day variability in NmF2. This variability had 5-, 7-, 9-, 11-, 13.5-, and 16 - 21-day periodicities. At middle latitudes, the ionosphere appeared to respond directly to the solar-wind and interplanetary-magnetic-field (IMF) induced geomagnetic-activity forcing, with the day-to-day variability having the same periods as those in the solar-wind/IMF and geomagnetic activity. At the geomagnetic Equator, the ionosphere had a strong 7-day periodicity, corresponding to the same periodicity in the IMF B z component. In the equatorial anomaly region, the ionosphere showed more complicated day-to-day variability, dominated by the 9-day periodicity. In addition, there were also periodicities of 11 days and 16 - 21 days in the ionosonde data at some stations. The ionosonde data were compared with the Coupled Magnetosphere Ionosphere Thermosphere (CMIT) simulations that were driven by the observed solar-wind and IMF data during the WHI. The CMIT simulations showed similar ionospheric daily variability seen in the data. They captured the positive and negative responses of the ionosphere at middle latitudes during the first corotating interaction region (CIR) event in the WHI. The response of the model to the second CIR event, however, was relatively weak.

Sensorimotor half-day cAMP.  

PubMed

This paper describes a half-day sensorimotor camp program for young children. The camp program initially was offered to 4 pre-kindergarten children and supervised by one registered occupational therapist and one technician. The therapeutic format of the camp was multimodal. Principles of sensory integration, neurodevelopmental treatment, and education were incorporated in a structured, but varied sensorimotor environment. The goals of the camp were to provide (1) successful group play experiences, and opportunities to participate in (2) developmental/age appropriate sensorimotor activities, (3) recreational activities and (4) activities of daily living. The half-day sensorimotor camp offered a positive and successful experience to developmentally delayed children, which is usually not possible in many community based summer programs. PMID:23931451

Present use of five-day wards.  

PubMed Central

A survey of five-day wards serving medical and surgical specialties indicated that 30 such units were operating in England in 1979. Six mixed surgical specialty, eight mixed specialty (medicine and surgery), four medical investigation, and 12 single specialty wards had opened since 1969. There was a varied, and often low, use of these wards. Nurse-staffing levels and allocation of operating theatre time also varied considerably. In busy wards nurse-staffing levels were high and access to operating theatre time reasonable. Medical investigation wards showed some of the highest levels of occupancy and throughput. The potential savings and service improvements that can result from five-day wards have yet to be realised on a wide scale.

Students Across Texas Celebrate Astronomy Day  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Over the past three years, McDonald Observatory has offered special Astronomy Day videoconference programs to students across Texas—the second largest state in the U.S. (Only Alaska is larger). Videoconferencing allows many students and teachers access to our Observatory, which is remotely located 180 miles (290 kilometers) from any major city. McDonald Observatory partners with Connect2Texas to advertise the Astronomy Day event. Connect2Texas provides the electronic bridge between schools and the Observatory. They also provide an online evaluation for teachers to complete. In 2009 the Astronomy Day videoconference celebrated the International Year of Astronomy and the historic observations made by Galileo Galilei. During the videoconference, the classes explore the Moon or Venus by making real-time telescopic observations. Students also receive an introduction to the Observatory, an opportunity to perform an activity relating to Galileo's observations, and an interview with an astronomer. A website provides teachers pre-and post-video conference materials, instructions, and a certificate of completion that can be customized for each student. The website also lists content alignment with state science education standards.

Forecasting October-November Caribbean hurricane days  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

October-November Caribbean hurricane activity can have profound impacts on the region through loss of life and devastation of property. Large-scale climate parameters associated with active late seasons in the Caribbean are investigated in this paper. Among the primary features that are noted are atmospheric and oceanic conditions typical of La Niña and a larger-than-normal Atlantic Warm Pool as well as reduced trade wind strength in the western tropical Atlantic. A two-predictor statistical model has been developed to forecast the number of hurricane days in the Caribbean during October-November. The first predictor is the July-September-averaged Nino 3.4 index, a measure of El Niño-Southern Oscillation, while the second predictor measures July-September-averaged sea surface temperatures in the western part of the tropical Atlantic extending into the Caribbean, which very closely correlates with the size of the Atlantic Warm Pool. These two predictors can hindcast approximately 58% of the variance in the number of October-November Caribbean hurricane days over the period from 1982 to 2010 when a drop-one cross validation procedure is applied. The predictors also correlate significantly with physical features in the Caribbean basin that are known to impact tropical cyclones. While these strong correlations between predictors and physical features extend back to an independent period from 1900 to 1981, the correlations between individual predictors and October-November hurricane days degrade considerably during the earlier period.

September 21, 1939: A Day in Radio  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Sponsored and maintained as a part of the American Studies Web site at the University of Virginia, this site features a complete day of radio programming, or more specifically, a entire day of programming from September 21, 1939. Programs included on the site include "Sunday with Arthur Godfrey," a show featuring the comedian Joe E. Brown, and several prominent radio dramas of the day, such as "The Romance of Helen Trent" (which ran for 27 years) and "Life Can Be Beautiful." Two of the presentations are particularly notable, "Amos n' Andy" and "Major Bowe's Original Amateur Hour." "Amos n' Andy" was a extremely popular and controversial radio show (and in the 1950s, a popular television show) that featured two white men playing African-Americans and speaking in a Southern dialect. The Major Bowes show was headquartered in New York, and, while the program "discovered" only a few who went on to great fame, there was one young man who got his start there: Frank Sinatra.

Exploratory analysis of rain days in central Sudan  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The changes in six rain-day categories occurring since the 1940s have been explored in central Sudan, considering two case studies representing important productive agricultural regions under semi-arid rain-fed and arid irrigated schemes. Drought conditions have persisted in Kosti (arid) in the form of a decline in rain-day frequencies, with significant trends in trace, weak and moderate falls. El Gedaref (semi-arid) exhibited both positive and negative trends, though significance characterizes the sequences of trace (falling) and weak and very strong (both rising) falls. The total annual rainfall in El Gedaref behaves depending solely on the heaviest falls contrary to Kosti, the annual values of which follow five fall categories, but with the heaviest events also have the strongest strength. Trace events occur more frequently in the arid area than in the semi-arid one, whereas weak to very strong events have opposite behaviour. Although El Niño-Southern Oscillation is one potential forcing of the variability of rainfall events, especially in Kosti, the paper arguably proposes a complex combination of factors at smaller scale that may also contribute to the large non-uniformity in rainfall patterns between the two areas, including local moisture recycling and convective activity, natural and anthropogenic aerosol loadings in the atmosphere and influence of the Ethiopian highlands.

Day-to-day ionospheric variability due to lower atmosphere perturbations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Abstract Ionospheric <span class="hlt">day-to-day</span> variability is a ubiquitous feature, even in the absence of appreciable geomagnetic activities. Although meteorological perturbations have been recognized as an important source of the variability, it is not well represented in previous modeling studies and the mechanism is not well understood. This study demonstrates that the thermosphere-ionosphere-mesosphere-electrodynamics general circulation model (TIME-GCM) constrained in the stratosphere and mesosphere by the hourly whole atmosphere community climate model (WACCM) simulations is capable of reproducing observed features of <span class="hlt">day-to-day</span> variability in the thermosphere-ionosphere. Realistic weather patterns in the lower atmosphere in WACCM were specified by Modern Era Retrospective Reanalysis for Research and Application (MERRA). The <span class="hlt">day-to-day</span> variations in mean zonal wind, migrating and nonmigrating tides in the thermosphere, vertical and zonal E × B drifts, and ionosphere F2 layer peak electron density (NmF2) are examined. The standard deviations of the drifts and NmF2 show local time and longitudinal dependence that compare favorably with observations. Their magnitudes are 50% or more of those from observations. The <span class="hlt">day-to-day</span> thermosphere and ionosphere variability in the model is primarily caused by the perturbations originated in lower atmosphere, since the model simulation is under constant solar minimum and low geomagnetic conditions.</p> <div class="credits"> <p class="dwt_author">Liu, H.-L.; Yudin, V.

PM10 concentrations during haze <span class="hlt">days</span> ranged from 250.5 to 519.4 ?gm(-3) which were about 3-8 times greater than those (ranged from 67.6 to 94.0 ?gm(-3)) during non-haze <span class="hlt">days</span>, and PM1.8 concentrations during haze periods were in the range of 117.6-378.6 ?gm(-3) which were 3-14 times higher than those (27.0 to 36.8 ?gm(-3)) during non-haze <span class="hlt">days</span>. In comparison with non-haze <span class="hlt">days</span>, all water soluble inorganic ions investigated in the airborne particles greatly enhanced during haze <span class="hlt">days</span>.

Fossil plants are known to occur at numerous points within this <span class="hlt">area</span>, and their study and identification has already furnished valuable data bearing on the geological history of the region, and when still further exploited it is confidently expected that they will afford more exact data for the use of geologists. This investigation is progressing satisfactorily, and at no distant <span class="hlt">day</span> it is hoped to have it in form for final publication. From time to time various members of the United States Geological Survey, as well as others not connected with this organization, have sent in small collections of fossil plants for determination. These have been studied and reported upon as fully as the condition of the problem permitted, so that the determinations could be immediately available to geologists, but with the reservation that none of the questions could be fully settled until all known material had been studied and properly correlated. The rich fossil plant deposits in the John <span class="hlt">Day</span> Basin, as set forth more fully in the historical account which follows, have been known for a period of nearly fifty years, but their study has been carried on in a more or less desultory manner. There has also been considerable confusion as to the horizons whence these plants came. As various species of plants described originally from the John <span class="hlt">Day</span> region were detected in various other localities in Oregon, and in surrounding <span class="hlt">areas</span>, as central Washington, western Idaho, and northern California, it became more than ever apparent that a thorough study of all material obtainable from this type <span class="hlt">area</span> would be necessary before any definite or satisfactory conclusions could be reached. The immediate incentive for this revision was furnished by the receipt of a considerable collection of plants, made by Dr. John C. Merriam in 1900 while he was in charge of an expedition into this region made under the auspices of the University of California. When these plants were submitted to me for study, it was thought possible to present their description, together with a revision of our knowledge of the previously known forms, within a space sufficiently small to permit the publication of the matter as an appendix to a paper on the general geology of the <span class="hlt">area</span>, then in preparation by Dr. Merriam. But it soon became apparent that this could not be adequately done within the space available, and a short preliminary report was prepared for and published by Dr. Merriam. The results of a complete restudy of all available fossil plant material from the John <span class="hlt">Day</span> Basin are now presented. I wish to record my great indebtedness to Dr. Merriam, who not only accompanied me at a considerable personal sacrifice on a trip through the region in 1901, but placed unreservedly at my disposal all material bearing in any way on the problem then in the paleontological museum of the University of California. To Dr. Arthur Hollick I am indebted for the loan of all material from the John <span class="hlt">Day</span> region belonging to Columbia University, and now deposited in the New York Botanical Garden at Bronx Park. This material, together with the rich collections belonging to the United States National Museum, represents practically all now known to have come from the John <span class="hlt">Day</span> Basin.</p> <div class="credits"> <p class="dwt_author">Knowlton, Frank Hall</p> <p class="dwt_publisher"></p> <p class="publishDate">1902-01-01</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="floatContainer result " lang="en"> <div class="resultNumber element">492</div> <div class="resultBody element"> <p class="result-title"><a target="resultTitleLink" href="http://science.gov/scigov/link.html?type=RESULT&redirectUrl=http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pmcentrez&artid=478131"> <span id="translatedtitle">Comprehensive one-<span class="hlt">day</span> renal function testing in man</span></a>  </p> <div class="result-meta"> <p class="source"><a target="_blank" id="logoLink" href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?DB=pmc">PubMed Central</a></p> <p class="result-summary">A comprehensive one-<span class="hlt">day</span> renal function test consisting of a single outpatient visit lasting nine hours, with a minimum of time off work or away from home, is described in detail.

Some aspects of improved methodology, such as the sequential determination of minimum urinary pH, bicarbonate, titratable acid, ammonium, and total acid on a single sample using an automatic titrator, are given in detail. Clinical application of the comprehensive nine-hour renal function testing system is illustrated by the result sheet of a patient with analgesic nephropathy, who was shown in one <span class="hlt">day</span> to have secondary severe renal failure (glomerular filtration rate 20% of normal for age and surface <span class="hlt">area</span>), renal tubular acidosis of the distal gradient type (minimum urinary pH 6·20), increased urinary white cell excretion rate, hyaline casts, and absence of red cell casts, consistent with a diagnosis of analgesic nephropathy and urinary tract inflammation.

This testing system has been found to be very useful in investigating patients with analgesic nephropathy, renal tubular acidosis, and after renal transplantation.</p> <div class="credits"> <p class="dwt_author">Gyory, A.

We are witnessing intensive floods, damaging cold waves, or highly polluted air every year, all of which are related to some extent to the pressure patterns such as intensive cyclones or subsiding anticyclones. The frost <span class="hlt">days</span> are one of these environmental conditions that are caused by these pressure patterns especially in the case of synoptic frosts. The Zanjan province of Iran with mountainous nature and higher elevations is one of the frost prone regions in the country. Most of the years this region suffers from intensive and damaging frosts such as the one occurred in December 2006 and January 2007. In order to advise planners and users, and lower the damages of such frosts, this study tried to analyze the synoptic origin of the December 2006 frost. To achieve the objective of the study the frost <span class="hlt">days</span> of the province during months December 2006 and January 2007 were selected. During these months all of the four stations of the Province ( Zanjan, Khorramdarreh, Khodabandeh, and Mahneshan) had experienced sub-zero temperatures. The daily zero GMT surface and 500 hPa. maps of the region were extracted from the National Center of Environmental Protection (NCEP) site for the selected <span class="hlt">days</span>. The pressure patterns of both levels were analyzed and assigned into different groups. The results showed that the main synoptic patterns responsible for the frosts of the region are the Caspian trough, Siberian high pressure, moving western anticyclones, upper level blockings, and cut off lows. When the Caspian Sea trough deepens it brings the westerly anticyclones to the <span class="hlt">area</span>. Under its eastward displacement, the Siberian High develops and sends its ridges towards the study region. Some times the upper level blocking of the Siberian <span class="hlt">area</span> brings the cold air masses to the study region. In general, the development and displacement of both Mediterranean and Caspian troughs control the cold air masses invasion to the Zanjan Province. Therefore it is highly recommended that the users and planners should watch the behavior of these troughs carefully and prepare themselves in advance.

At Mars, the so-called ionospheric dynamo region, where plasma/neutral collisions permit electric currents perpendicular to the magnetic field, lies between 100 and 250 km altitude. We find that the ionosphere is highly conductive in this region, as expected, with peak Pedersen and Hall conductivities of 0.1-1.5 S/m depending on the solar illumination and induced magnetospheric conditions. Furthermore, we find a consistent double peak pattern in the altitude profile of the <span class="hlt">day</span>-side Pedersen conductivity, similar to that on Titan found by Rosenqvist et al. (2009). A high altitude peak, located between 180 and 200 km, is equivalent to the terrestrial peak in the lower F-layer. A second and typically much stronger layer of Pedersen conductivity is observed between 120 and 130 km, which is below the Hall conductivity peak at about 130-140 km. In this altitude region, MGS finds a sharp decrease in induced magnetic field strength at the inner magnetospheric boundary, while the <span class="hlt">day</span>-side electron density is known to remain high as far down as 100 km. We find that such Titan-like behaviour of the Pedersen conductivity is only observed under regions of strongly draped magnetospheric field-lines, and negligible crustal magnetic anomalies below the spacecraft. Above regions of strong crustal magnetic anomalies, the Pedersen conductivity profile becomes more Earth-like with one strong Pedersen peak above the Hall conductivity peak. Here, both conductivities are 1-2 orders of magnitude smaller than the above only weakly magnetised crustal regions, depending on the strength of the crustal anomaly field at ionospheric altitudes. This nature of the Pedersen conductivity together with the structured distribution of crustal anomalies all over the planet should give rise to strong conductivity gradients around such anomalies. <span class="hlt">Day</span>-side ionospheric conductivities on Mars (in regions away from the crustal magnetic anomalies) and Titan seem to behave in a very similar manner when horizontally draped magnetic field-lines partially magnetise a sunlit ionosphere. Therefore, it appears that a similar double peak structure of strong Pedersen conductivity could be a more general feature of non-magnetised bodies with ionised upper atmospheres, and thus should be expected to occur also at other non-magnetised terrestrial planets like Venus or other planetary bodies within the host planet magnetospheres.</p> <div class="credits"> <p class="dwt_author">Opgenoorth, H.
