Media violence.  

PubMed

Research on the effects of media violence is not well understood by the general public. Despite this fact, there is an overwhelming consensus in the scientific literature about the unhealthy effects of media violence. Meta-analyses show that media-violence viewing consistently is associated with higher levels of antisocial behavior, ranging from the trivial (imitative violence directed against toys) to the serious (criminal violence), with many consequential outcomes in between (acceptance of violence as a solution to problems, increased feelings of hostility, and the apparent delivery of painful stimulation to another person). Desensitization is another well-documented effect of viewing violence, which is observable in reduced arousal and emotional disturbance while witnessing violence, the reduced tendency to intervene in a fight, and less sympathy for the victims of violence. Although there is evidence that youth who are already violent are more likely to seek out violent entertainment, there is strong evidence that the relationship between violence viewing and antisocial behavior is bidirectional. There is growing evidence that media violence also engenders intense fear in children which often lasts days, months, and even years. The media's potential role in solutions to these problems is only beginning to be explored, in investigations examining the uses and effects of movie ratings, television ratings, and the V-chip, and the effects of media literacy programs and public education efforts. Future research should explore important individual differences in responses to media violence and effective ways to intervene in the negative effects. PMID:10904203

Media violence.  

PubMed

American media are the most violent in the world, and American society is now paying a high price in terms of real life violence. Research has confirmed that mass media violence contributes to aggressive behavior, fear, and desensitization of violence. Television, movies, music videos, computer/video games are pervasive media and represent important influences on children and adolescents. Portraying rewards and punishments and showing the consequences of violence are probably the two most essential contextual factors for viewers as they interpret the meaning of what they are viewing on television. Public health efforts have emphasized public education, media literacy campaign for children and parents, and an increased use of technology to prevent access to certain harmful medial materials.

Otitis media.  

PubMed

Bacterial pathogens are isolated from middle ear fluid in up to 90% of children with acute otitis media (OM). Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae and Moraxella catarrhalis predominate. Acute OM can be classified as uncomplicated, persistent, recurrent or chronic. Patient age, symptom severity, prior treatment history and exposure through day-care attendance in children influences pathogen distribution, antimicrobial susceptibility and anticipated clinical and microbiological responses to empirical and pathogen-directed therapies. The natural history of acute OM without intervention is favourable. However, meta-analysis of clinical trials shows an improvement in symptom and middle ear effusion resolution with antimicrobials. Aminopenicillins, cephalosporins and macrolides are often selected as therapy for acute OM. The various agents have differing activity against acute OM pathogens, particularly organisms with resistance mechanisms and they differ in dosing schedule, side effects and compliance enhancing factors. Consideration should be given to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic principles in antibiotic selection. Selection criteria include antibiotic activity against drug-resistant S. pneumoniae and efficacy against beta-lactamase-producing Gram-negative organisms. The necessary duration of treatment for acute OM varies according to multiple factors, including local preferences, but there is growing, compelling data to support short-course therapy. Tympanocentesis has been endorsed in various guidelines as a diagnostic and therapeutic procedure. Best-practice for management of acute OM continues to advocate antibiotic therapy with careful, accurate diagnosis and consideration of the major pathogens and their mechanisms of resistance.

Sponsored by the European Union's MEDIA II Programme and the Italian Government, this site was created to foster distribution of European films by providing information about specific films and the European movie industry in general. Though aimed at industry professionals, any user with a strong interest in European cinema can appreciate this site. It is composed of three main sections. The first, the European Cinema On-line Database, currently contains data on over 3000 films and 7000 companies. The Database actually comprises six overlapping directories: Films, Production, Distribution, World Sales, Theaters, and Exhibition Companies. Search options vary by directory, but returns generally include commercial data (contact information for the producers and distributors); cast, director, and festivals/awards information; and in some cases a synopsis (also available in French and German) and still photos. The second major portion of the site is a collection of professional publications, including the 1998 European Cinema Yearbook, the 1998 edition of the national reports, and the White Book of the European Exhibition industry. The first two are offered in .pdf format and all three offer a rich collection of official statistics on the European film industry. The third section of the site, Euro Kids, is essentially a smaller version of the Database, containing films and companies which address younger audiences.

Silent otitis media.  

PubMed

There is a traditional view that chronic otitis media and chronic mastoiditis must exist in the presence of a tympanic membrane perforation. Based on a human histopathological study of 123 temporal bones with chronic otitis media out of 333 temporal bones with all forms of otitis media pathology, only 24 patients (36 ears) had symptoms of otological disease recorded on their charts and only 19.5% of these had an associated tympanic membrane perforation. Unsuspected findings of chronic otitis media (active or inactive) are occasionally confirmed at exploratory tympanotomy. Such quiet chronic pathological findings in the middle ear have occurred in association with endolymphatic hydrops and cochlear end organ lesions suggesting the possibility that silent chronic otitis media may help explain sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo, and tinnitus for certain patients. We put forth the hypothesis that clinically undetectable silent otitis media in neonates and infants might help explain why certain children are otitis media prone. Our otopathology laboratory includes 111 ears harvested from neonates and infants (average age 8 months). Histological analysis revealed normal findings in some, whereas significant numbers of others show all forms of otitis media, including purulent otitis media, chronic otitis media, serous otitis media, and mucoid otitis media, with occasional overlap of types. Clinical implications will be discussed with emphasis on silent otitis media and its relationship to the pathogenesis of otitis media and silent chronic otitis media and its possible role in causing insidious labyrinthine changes. A significant outcome of this study was the marked degree of unresolved mesenchyme in the clinically manifest otitis media group or silent otitis media group as compared to a control group. This association and role of mesenchyme is discussed relative to the pathogenesis of infantile otitis media. PMID:7392745

Rotary Microfilter Media Evaluation  

SciTech Connect

Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) received funding from DOE EM-21, Office of Cleanup Technologies, to develop the rotary microfilter for high level radioactive service. One aspect of this project evaluated alternative filter media to select one for the 2nd generation rotary microfilter being procured as a prefilter to a small column ion exchange process. The authors conducted screening tests on a variety of filter media and pore sizes using a stirred cell followed by pilot-scale testing on a more limited number of filter media and pore sizes with a three disk rotary microfilter. These tests used 5.6 molar sodium supernate, and sludge plus monosodium titanate (MST) solids. The conclusions from this work are: (1) The 0.1 {micro} nominal TruMem{reg_sign} ceramic and the Pall PMM M050 (0.5 {micro} nominal) stainless steel filter media produced the highest flux in rotary filter testing. (2) The Pall PMM M050 media produced the highest flux of the stainless steel media tested in rotary filter testing. (3) The Pall PMM M050 media met filtrate quality requirements for the rotary filter. (4) The 0.1 {micro} TruMem{reg_sign} and 0.1 {micro} Pall PMM media met filtrate quality requirements as well. (5) The Pall PMM M050 media produced comparable flux to the 0.1 {micro} TruMem{reg_sign} media, and proved more durable and easier to weld. Based on these test results, the authors recommend Pall PMM M050 filter media for the 2nd generation rotary microfilter.

Attracting the Media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The media provide the essential conduit for the mass communication of science. Yet the factors that contribute to a successful media production are not necessarily those regarded as most important by the astronomy researcher. Taking television as the prime example of a medium of mass communication, I examine some of the elements that are involved in the creation of a successful and infl uential astronomy programme. These include persuading the "gatekeepers" who control the media that they should screen a programme on astronomy; choosing a riveting topic; writing an absorbing script; selecting the right human interest; and creating visuals-including graphic sequences-that are compelling to watch.

Pelagic fish hydrolysates as peptones for bacterial culture media.  

PubMed

For several years in the Quebec fisheries' industry, landings of pelagic fish have been calculated at over 4000 tons. These under-exploited species, rich in lipids and proteins, could be used in valuable new products. In the present study, hydrolysates of mackerel and herring were produced and utilized as sources of peptones in the formulation of new bacterial culture media. The molecular weight distribution analysis showed that molecules present in the hydrolysates were lower than 1300 Da for herring, and lower than 930 Da for mackerel. The formulated media were compared with reference media using 6 bacterial strains (3 lactic acid (LAB) and 3 non-lactic). The absorbance (OD) and carbohydrate measurements revealed that the formulated media possessed similar yields in comparison with the reference media. Finally, the inhibition of Listeria innocua by LAB bacteriocins was evaluated. Results obtained for Pediococcus acidilactici demonstrated high activities for each medium studied. Thus, the medium containing herring peptones generated the highest bacteriocin titre (32768 AU/mL), followed by both the medium containing mackerel peptones and the MRS7 medium (16384 AU/mL). Each medium containing the fish hydrolysates efficiently supported the growth of the bacterial strains. Pelagic fish peptones are promising as a novel bacterial culture media. PMID:19940932

Implicit Media Knowledge Experiments & Results  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Implicit Media Knowledge aims to provide relevant information related to visual media without effort. It is based on the analysis of media usage from several users (e.g. a community). Algorithms based on clustering methods that extract relevant information (e.g. tags, taxonomy trees) related to a media from its usage are detailed. To validate our new approach, we propose to apply our concept and algorithms on a specific media use such as the analysis of how multiple users organize their media files. Significant results of two experiments will be highlighted. Perspectives of our work will be finally presented.

Prediction of cell culture media performance using fluorescence spectroscopy.  

PubMed

Cell culture media used in industrial mammalian cell culture are complex aqueous solutions that are inherently difficult to analyze comprehensively. The analysis of media quality and variance is of utmost importance in efficient manufacturing. We are exploring the use of rapid "holistic" analytical methods that can be used for routine screening of cell culture media used in industrial biotechnology. The application of rapid fluorescence spectroscopic techniques to the routine analysis of cell culture media (Chinese hamster ovary cell-based manufacture) was investigated. We have developed robust methods which can be used to identify compositional changes and ultimately predict the efficacy of individual fed batch media in terms of downstream protein product yield with an accuracy of +/-0.13 g/L. This is achieved through the implementation of chemometric methods such as multiway robust principal component analysis (MROBPCA), and n-way partial least-squares-discriminant analysis and regression (NPLS-DA and NPLS). This ability to observe compositional changes and predict product yield before media use has enormous potential and should permit the effective elimination of one of the major process variables leading to more consistent product quality and improved yield. These robust and reliable methods have the potential to become an important part of upstream biopharmaceutical quality control and analysis. PMID:20088547

Forces in nonlinear media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

I investigate the properties of forces on bodies in theories governed by the generalized Poisson equation ?(|?| /a0)?] ? G?, for the potential ? produced by a distribution of sources ?. This equation describes, inter alia, media with a response coefficient, ?, that depends on the field strength, such as in nonlinear, dielectric or diamagnetic, media; nonlinear transport problems with field-strength-dependent conductivity or diffusion coefficient; nonlinear electrostatics, as in the Born-Infeld theory; certain stationary potential flows in compressible fluids, in which case the forces act on sources or obstacles in the flow. The expressions for the force on a point charge are derived exactly for the limits of very low and very high charge. The force on an arbitrary body in an external field of asymptotically constant gradient, -g0, is shown to be F = Qg0, where Q is the total effective charge of the body. The corollary Q = 0 ? F = 0 is a generalization of d'Alembert's paradox. I show that for G > 0 (as in Newtonian gravity) two point charges of the same (opposite) sign still attract (repel). The opposite is true for G < 0. I discuss its generalization to extended bodies and derive virial relations.

However, significant titles of general relevance to the addictions field will also be included, even if they are not "biologi cal", as will titles of general methodological and clinical relevance, even if they are not on "addictions". Similar considerations will apply to other media (software, audio tapes and CDs, videos, etc). However, specific "addictions" software applications seem to be relatively uncommon and, as these items are rarely reviewed elsewhere, we will endeavour to include reviews of some of the older programmes that are still useful, as well as new titles that appear.

DENSE MEDIA CYCLONE OPTIMIZATION  

SciTech Connect

The fieldwork associated with Task 1 (Baseline Assessment) was completed this quarter. Detailed cyclone inspections completed at all but one plant during maintenance shifts. Analysis of the test samples is also currently underway in Task 4 (Sample Analysis). A Draft Recommendation was prepared for the management at each test site in Task 2 (Circuit Modification). All required procurements were completed. Density tracers were manufactured and tested for quality control purposes. Special sampling tools were also purchased and/or fabricated for each plant site. The preliminary experimental data show that the partitioning performance for all seven HMC circuits was generally good. This was attributed to well-maintained cyclones and good operating practices. However, the density tracers detected that most circuits suffered from poor control of media cutpoint. These problems were attributed to poor x-ray calibration and improper manual density measurements. These conclusions will be validated after the analyses of the composite samples have been completed.

Combustion in porous media  

SciTech Connect

A 2.8-liter tube-shaped combustion vessel was constructed to study flame propagation and quenching in porous media. For this experiment, hydrogen-air flames propagating horizontally into abed of 6 mm diameter glass beads were studied. Measurements of pressure and temperature along the length of the tube were used to observe flame propagation of quenching. The critical hydrogen concentration for Hz-air mixtures was found to be 11.5%, corresponding to a critical Peclet number of Pe* = 37. This value is substantially less than the value of Pe* = 65 quoted in the literature, for example Babkin et al. (1991). It is hypothesized that buoyancy and a dependence of Pe on the Lewis number account for the discrepancy between these two results.

Media violence: advice for parents.  

PubMed

By the time they reach age 18, American children will have seen 16,000 simulated murders and 200,000 acts of violence (American Psychiatric Association, 1998). Media violence can be hazardous to children's health, and studies point overwhelmingly to a causal connection between media violence and aggressive attitudes, values and behaviors in some children (Congressional Public Health Summit, 2000). Through education in clinics, schools, and primary care offices, pediatric nurses can minimize the impact of media violence. They can obtain comprehensive media histories on children and families. They can teach children and parents about the effects of media violence and advise them how to avoid exposure. Nurses can also encourage the entertainment industry to exercise more responsibility in the ways they entertain children. PMID:12593343

Discrete track media were simulated and compared with conventional, continuous media. The optimum write pole width was determined for discrete track media with 60 nm land/30 nm grooves, subject to the condition that there be no adjacent track erasure. Under optimal conditions discrete track media outperformed continuous media in terms of both on-track and off-track SNR. The performance difference became greater at higher linear densities, demonstrating the potential of discrete track media.

Beethoven: architecture for media telephony  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper presents a new architecture and techniques for media-based telephony over wireless/wireline IP networks, called `Beethoven'. The platform supports complex media transport and mobile conferencing for multi-user environments having a non-uniform access. New techniques are presented to provide advanced multimedia call management over different media types and their presentation. The routing and distribution of the media is rendered over the standards based protocol. Our approach offers a generic, distributed and object-oriented solution having interfaces, where signal processing and unified messaging algorithms are embedded as instances of core classes. The platform services are divided into `basic communication', `conferencing' and `media session'. The basic communication form platform core services and supports access from scalable user interface to network end-points. Conferencing services take care of media filter adaptation, conversion, error resiliency, multi-party connection and event signaling, while the media session services offer resources for application-level communication between the terminals. The platform allows flexible attachment of any number of plug-in modules, and thus we use it as a test bench for multiparty/multi-point conferencing and as an evaluation bench for signal coding algorithms. In tests, our architecture showed the ability to easily be scaled from simple voice terminal to complex multi-user conference sharing virtual data.

[Medical marketing in the media].  

PubMed

The mass-media monopolize an important part of the lay public attention and intellectual energy and yet physicians do not seem very convinced that they must implicate themselves socially and participate in the education of the general public. Two reasons explain the lack of physicians' participation in the media. These are: the lack of interest and the lack of experience. Yet more and more studies underline the importance for health professionals to make more use of the mass-media in educating, supporting and informing the population on all aspects related to health matters. Thus the medical profession must collaborate more closely with the mass-media. Accordingly, physicians must jump at the opportunity to make every positive action known to the population instead of showing off in the media only their corporative or financial interests. They must also intervene each time that matters related to either health or illness are criticized or denounced in the media. As long as the medical profession is not conscious of the importance of judicious use of the media and of assuring its professional and social credibility, surveys will continue to put physicians in the public eye primarily on an individual basis and only in the last instance as a group.

Fractal heterogeneous media.  

PubMed

A method is presented for generating compact fractal disordered media by generalizing the random midpoint displacement algorithm. The obtained structures are invasive stochastic fractals, with the Hurst exponent varying as a continuous parameter, as opposed to lacunar deterministic fractals, such as the Menger sponge. By employing the detrending moving average algorithm [A. Carbone, Phys. Rev. E 76, 056703 (2007)], the Hurst exponent of the generated structure can be subsequently checked. The fractality of such a structure is referred to a property defined over a three-dimensional topology rather than to the topology itself. Consequently, in this framework, the Hurst exponent should be intended as an estimator of compactness rather than of roughness. Applications can be envisaged for simulating and quantifying complex systems characterized by self-similar heterogeneity across space. For example, exploitation areas range from the design and control of multifunctional self-assembled artificial nanostructures and microstructures to the analysis and modeling of complex pattern formation in biology, environmental sciences, geomorphological sciences, etc. PMID:20365674

PubMed Central

To examine the clinical impression that the incidence of otitis media in infant swimmers (“water babies”) is higher than that in non-swimmers, we reviewed the records and interviewed the parents of 186 children under the age of four and one-half years seen in a suburban family practice. Sixty-five% (46/71) of swimmers as compared to 50% (58/115) of non-swimmers had been diagnosed as having at least one episode of otitis media. Although this difference was not statistically significant (p=0.055), this pilot study encouraged us to pursue further the possible association between otitis media and early-childhood swimming classes.

Distractor filtering in media multitaskers.  

PubMed

A growing amount of modern media is consumed simultaneously, a phenomenon known as 'media multitasking'. Individuals who regularly engage in this activity, heavy media multitaskers (HMMs), are more affected by irrelevant information that can intrude into a primary task than are light media multitaskers (LMMs--Ophir et al, 2009 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the USA 106 15583). However, the locus of this deficit is unknown, as previous research is consistent with both memory and attentional explanations. Here, we isolated attentional processes by employing a singleton distractor task with low working-memory demands. In this task, LMMs used top-down information to improve their performance, yet HMMs did not. This difference in performance in an established attentional capture task argues for the presence of attentional differences in HMMs and is consistent with the idea that HMMs maintain a wider attentional scope than LMMs, even when instructed otherwise.

The study, "based on a nationally representative sample of more than 3,000 children ages 2 -18, shows how much time kids spend watching TV and movies, using computers, playing video games, listening to music, and reading." The report also examines the extent and nature of parental oversight, how children use media, and whether new media are replacing traditional ones for the nation's young people. One of the more sensational findings: "the typical American child spends an average of more than 38 hours a week - nearly five and a half hours a day - consuming media outside of school."

Media and young children's learning.  

PubMed

Electronic media, particularly television, have long been criticized for their potential impact on children. One area for concern is how early media exposure influences cognitive development and academic achievement. Heather Kirkorian, Ellen Wartella, and Daniel Anderson summarize the relevant research and provide suggestions for maximizing the positive effects of media and minimizing the negative effects. One focus of the authors is the seemingly unique effect of television on children under age two. Although research clearly demonstrates that well-designed, age-appropriate, educational television can be beneficial to children of preschool age, studies on infants and toddlers suggest that these young children may better understand and learn from real-life experiences than they do from video. Moreover, some research suggests that exposure to television during the first few years of life may be associated with poorer cognitive development. With respect to children over two, the authors emphasize the importance of content in mediating the effect of television on cognitive skills and academic achievement. Early exposure to age-appropriate programs designed around an educational curriculum is associated with cognitive and academic enhancement, whereas exposure to pure entertainment, and violent content in particular, is associated with poorer cognitive development and lower academic achievement. The authors point out that producers and parents can take steps to maximize the positive effects of media and minimize the negative effects. They note that research on children's television viewing can inform guidelines for producers of children's media to enhance learning. Parents can select well-designed, age-appropriate programs and view the programs with their children to maximize the positive effects of educational media. The authors' aim is to inform policymakers, educators, parents, and others who work with young children about the impact of media, particularly television, on preschool children, and what society can do to maximize the benefits and minimize the costs.

Manipulation of light with ? transformation media.  

PubMed

A type of transformation media called ? media is proposed by performing a direct transformation to the metric tensor of another kind of media, called seed media. Light rays in an ? medium correlate to those in its seed medium through a simple displacement or rotation relation. Three types of commonly encountered anisotropic media are covered by the concept of ? media: (1) media of slab shape, having continuous translational symmetry with respect to two Cartesian coordinate components; (2) media of cylindrical shape, having cylindrical rotational symmetry and continuous translational symmetry along the longitudinal direction; (3) media of spherical shape, having spherical rotational symmetry, with two principal axes along the symmetry directions, and with the material parameters in the same sign. Optical properties of such media can be effectively interpreted through recalling the properties of certain isotropic media, i.e., their seed media. Conversely, from simple isotropic media in which light trajectories are well known, one can design ? media for manipulating light. Based on this fact, several optical devices, including frequency demultiplexers, beam splitters, focusing lenses, and radiation controllers, are designed and numerically verified. The famed invisibility cloak derived from a conventional coordinate transformation is revisited from the ? media perspective. PMID:21643391

ACTIVE MEDIA: Laser media based on coloured polyurethane  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The advantages of a polyurethane matrix over other polymers, which are widely used as active media for dye lasers, are analysed. This matrix exhibits the photostability, service life, radiation resistance, conversion efficiency, and homogeneity of the dye distribution that surpass these properties for active media based on polyurethane acrylate, which has close physical and operation properties. These advantages result not only from the milder polymerisation conditions but also from a lower probability of the formation of ion pairs and dye aggregates. A substantial suppression of these processes in polyurethane is explained by its greater polarity and solvation ability compared to polyurethane acrylate.

Background to plastic media blasting  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Chemical strippers based on active phenolic components in a chlorinated solvent have been the traditional method for removing of paints and coatings from aircraft. With the recent recognition of the environmental and health concerns of chlorinated solvents and the problem disposing of phenols there have been some major developments in paint removal technology. One of the first techniques developed to replace chemical strippers and now one of the most widely used techniques for paint removal from aircraft was plastic media blasting (PMB). The PMB technique is similar to traditional grit blasting (slag, sand alumina or carborundum) techniques used on steel and other metals (based on grits) but using polymer based media that are softer and less aggressive. Plastic media are ranked by hardness and density as well as chemical composition.

Resonance phenomena in fluid media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Studies were made to detect the presence of a memory in fluid media. The experiments revealed that the effect of electromagnetic radiation on fluid media can be explained by the phenomenon of resonant response of the system receiving the radiation. Studies were made on plant seeds and yeasts, accompanied by catalytic chemical reactions and several physical and chemical tests. Sorption of trypaflavine by seeds was studied with exposure of distilled water to laser radiation. It was found that the duration of preservation of acquired properties depends on wavelength. The shorter the wavelength, the greater the degree of attentuation of changes in the properties of the water, as reflected by trypaflavine sorption by seed cells. Similar results were obtained in a study of the dynamics of hemolysis of erythrocytes in a saline solution. Changes in biological and physicochemical activity in fluid media correlate with wavelength.

Composite media, systems, and devices for substantially removing, or otherwise processing, one or more constituents of a fluid stream. The composite media comprise a plurality of beads, each having a matrix substantially comprising polyacrylonitrile (PAN) and supporting one or more active components which are effective in removing, by various mechanisms, one or more constituents from a fluid stream. Due to the porosity and large surface area of the beads, a high level of contact is achieved between composite media of the present invention and the fluid stream being processed. Further, the homogeneity of the beads facilitates use of the beads in high volume applications where it is desired to effectively process a large volume of flow per unit of time.

Development of Animal Models of Otitis Media  

PubMed Central

Otitis media is defined as inflammation of the middle ear, including the auditory ossicles and the Eustachian tube. Otitis media is a major health problem in many societies. The causes of otitis media includes infection and anatomic/physiologic, host, and environmental factors. In general, otitis media is a childhood disease, and anatomic and physiologic changes have great effects on its development. Thus, in vitro or human experimental studies of otitis media are difficult. Several experimental animal models have been introduced to investigate the pathogenesis and treatment of otitis media. However, none are ideal. The aim of this review is to provide a brief overview of the current status of animal models of otitis media with effusion, acute otitis media, and cholesteatoma. This review will assist determination of the most appropriate animal models of otitis media.

Optical coherence-domain reflectometry and laser-based ultrasound detection have been combined with the use of adaptive optics to detect ultrasound through turbid media. The dynamic hologram in a photorefractive quantum-well device performs as a coherence gate that eliminates multiply scattered background. Quadrature homodyne detection conditions are selected by the choice of center wavelength of the pulse spectrum, requiring no active stabilization or feedback. A depth resolution of 30 microm was achieved, with a pulse duration of nominally 120 fs for ultrasound detection through turbid media up to optical thicknesses of 11 mean free scattering lengths.

Media and breastfeeding: friend or foe?

The mass media have the potential to be powerful friends or foes in promoting breastfeeding. The media could help by putting the issue of breastfeeding on policy agendas and by framing breastfeeding as healthy and normative for baby and mother. Currently, however, it looks as if the media are more often contributing to perceptions that breastfeeding is difficult for mothers and potentially dangerous for babies. This paper presents a brief overview of research on the media and breastfeeding, some insights into the market forces and human psychological factors that may play into media representations of breastfeeding, and strategies to help breastfeeding advocates work more effectively with the media.

High Anisotropy Magnetic Recording Media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Areal densities in magnetic recording have exhibited Moore's Law like increases in the last ten years. This is partially due to improvements in the media microstructure where reduced grain sizes, tighter grain size distribution, and chemical isolation between grains to break exchange provided increased signal-to-noise from decreased transition noise. With the recent shift from longitudinal to perpendicular recording, areal densities have again continued to increase with demonstrations of over 250 Gbits/in^2. However, areal density is limited by thermal stability considerations where the ratio of stored magnetic energy KuV (anisotropy energy times the magnetic switching volume) to the thermal energy kT must be ˜ 50-70. The projected limit for traditional CoPtCr(X) granular media is on the order of 500 Gbits/in^2. Further increases in the areal density will require greater reduction in the grain size (switching volume), which necessitates finding media with higher anisotropy to maintain thermal stability. Possible candidate materials systems include FePt and SmCo5, which have bulk Ku values 50 to 100 times greater than CoPtCr(X) media materials. High Ku allows for thermally stable grains sizes down to ˜ 2.5 nm, which would permit areal densities in the Tbit/in^2 regime. Accompanying this increase in Ku is an increase in the media switching field (H0), which is proportional to the ratio Ku/Ms where Ms is the saturation magnetization. Therefore, while providing thermal stability, these high Ku materials would potentially require writing fields greater than 50 kOe which far exceed those of available recording head materials. One possible solution is heat-assisted magnetic recording (HAMR) where a laser locally heats the media in order to reduce the coercivity so that available head fields are sufficient. Numerous challenges exist for HAMR including high cooling rates so that the heating process does not render adjacent bits thermally unstable. This paper will review recent progress in this area and concentrate on the challenges for the production of high anisotropy media for Tbit/in^2 areal densities, such as maintaining grain sizes of 2 to 4 nm with the correct crystallographic texture and sufficient grain isolation to break exchange.

Enabling Community Through Social Media  

PubMed Central

Background Social network analysis provides a perspective and method for inquiring into the structures that comprise online groups and communities. Traces from interaction via social media provide the opportunity for understanding how a community is formed and maintained online. Objective The paper aims to demonstrate how social network analysis provides a vocabulary and set of techniques for examining interaction patterns via social media. Using the case of the #hcsmca online discussion forum, this paper highlights what has been and can be gained by approaching online community from a social network perspective, as well as providing an inside look at the structure of the #hcsmca community. Methods Social network analysis was used to examine structures in a 1-month sample of Twitter messages with the hashtag #hcsmca (3871 tweets, 486 unique posters), which is the tag associated with the social media–supported group Health Care Social Media Canada. Network connections were considered present if the individual was mentioned, replied to, or had a post retweeted. Results Network analyses revealed patterns of interaction that characterized the community as comprising one component, with a set of core participants prominent in the network due to their connections with others. Analysis showed the social media health content providers were the most influential group based on in-degree centrality. However, there was no preferential attachment among people in the same professional group, indicating that the formation of connections among community members was not constrained by professional status. Conclusions Network analysis and visualizations provide techniques and a vocabulary for understanding online interaction, as well as insights that can help in understanding what, and who, comprises and sustains a network, and whether community emerges from a network of online interactions.

Capillary fracturing in granular media.  

PubMed

We study the displacement of immiscible fluids in deformable, noncohesive granular media. Experimentally, we inject air into a thin bed of water-saturated glass beads and observe the invasion morphology. The control parameters are the injection rate, the bead size, and the confining stress. We identify three invasion regimes: capillary fingering, viscous fingering, and "capillary fracturing," where capillary forces overcome frictional resistance and induce the opening of conduits. We derive two dimensionless numbers that govern the transition among the different regimes: a modified capillary number and a fracturing number. The experiments and analysis predict the emergence of fracturing in fine-grained media under low confining stress, a phenomenon that likely plays a fundamental role in many natural processes such as primary oil migration, methane venting from lake sediments, and the formation of desiccation cracks.

We study the displacement of immiscible fluids in deformable, noncohesive granular media. Experimentally, we inject air into a thin bed of water-saturated glass beads and observe the invasion morphology. The control parameters are the injection rate, the bead size, and the confining stress. We identify three invasion regimes: capillary fingering, viscous fingering, and “capillary fracturing,” where capillary forces overcome frictional resistance and induce the opening of conduits. We derive two dimensionless numbers that govern the transition among the different regimes: a modified capillary number and a fracturing number.

Ubiquitous Media for Collocated Interaction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Has ubiquitous computing entered our lives as anticipated in the early 90s or at the turn of the millennium? In this last decade, the processing of media combined with sensing and communication capabilities has been slowly entering our lives through powerful smartphones, multimodal game consoles, instrumented cars, and large displays pervading public spaces. However, the visionary formulations (Weiser 1991) and updated scenarios (Abowd and Mynatt 2000) have not been realized, despite the fact that the technology has become increasingly accessible.

Flat bands in topological media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Topological media are systems whose properties are protected by topology and thus are robust to deformations of the system. In topological insulators and superconductors the bulk-surface and bulk-vortex correspondence gives rise to the gapless Weyl, Dirac or Majorana fermions on the surface of the system and inside vortex cores. Here we show that in gapless topological media, the bulk-surface and bulk-vortex correspondence is more effective: it produces topologically protected gapless fermions without dispersion—the fiat band. Fermion zero modes forming the flat band are localized on the surface of topological media with protected nodal lines [A. P. Schnyder and S. Ryu, Phys. Rev. B 84, 060504(R) (2011); T. T. Heikkil G. E. Volovik, JETP Lett. 93, 59 (2011)] and in the vortex core in systems with topologically protected Fermi points (Weyl points) [G. E. Volovik, JETP Lett. 93, 66 (2011)]. Flat band has an extremely singular density of states, and we show that this property may give rise in particular to surface superconductivity which could exist even at room temperature.

METAL MEDIA FILTERS, AG-1 SECTION FI  

SciTech Connect

One application of metal media filters is in various nuclear air cleaning processes including applications for protecting workers, the public and the environment from hazardous and radioactive particles. To support this application the development of the ASME AG-1 FI Standard on Metal Media has been under way for more than ten years. Development of the proposed section has required resolving several difficult issues associated with operating conditions (media velocity, pressure drop, etc.), qualification testing, and quality acceptance testing. Performance characteristics of metal media are dramatically different than the glass fiber media with respect to parameters like differential pressures, operating temperatures, media strength, etc. These differences make existing data for a glass fiber media inadequate for qualifying a metal media filter for AG-1. In the past much work has been conducted on metal media filters at facilities such as Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) to qualify the media as High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) Filters. Particle retention testing has been conducted at Oak Ridge Filter Test Facility and at Air Techniques International (ATI) to prove that the metal media meets or exceeds the 99.97% particle retention required for a HEPA Filter. Even with his testing, data was lacking to complete an AG-1 FI Standard on metal media. With funding secured by Mississippi State University (MSU) from National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), a research test stand is being designed and fabricated at MSU's Institute for Clean Energy Technology (ICET) Facility to obtain qualification data on metal media. This in turn will support required data needed for the FI Standard. The paper will discuss in detail how the test stand at MSU will obtain the necessary data to complete the FI Standard.

Transport phenomena in porous media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Advanced Study Institute on Fundamentals of Transport Phenomena in Porous Media, held July 14-23, 1985 in Newark, Del. and directed by Jacob Bear (Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa) and M. Yavuz Corapcioglu (City College of New York), under the auspices of NATO, was a sequel to the NATO Advanced Study Institute (ASI) held in 1982 (proceedings published as Fundamentals of Transport Phenomena in Porous Media, J. Bear, and M.Y. Corapcioglu (Ed.), Martinus Nijhoff, Dordrecht, the Netherlands, 1984). The meeting was attended by 106 participants and lecturers from 21 countries.As in the first NATO/ASI, the objective of this meeting—which was a combination of a conference of experts and a teaching institute— was to present and discuss selected topics of transport in porous media. In selecting topics and lecturers, an attempt was made to bridge the gap that sometimes exists between research and practice. An effort was also made to demonstrate the unified approach to the transport of mass of a fluid phase, components of a fluid phase, momentum, and heat in a porous medium domain. The void space may be occupied by a single fluid phase or by a number of such phases; each fluid may constitute a multicomponent system; the solid matrix may be deformable; and the whole process of transport in the system may take place under nonisothermal conditions, with or without phase changes. Such phenomena are encountered in a variety of disciplines, e.g., petroleum engineering, civil engineering (in connection with groundwater flow and contamination), soil mechanics, and chemical engineering. One of the goals of the 1985 NATO/ASI, as in the 1982 institute, was to bring together experts from all these disciplines and enhance communication among them.

Particle transport in porous media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The migration and capture of particles (such as colloidal materials and microorganisms) through porous media occur in fields as diversified as water and wastewater treatment, well drilling, and various liquid-solid separation processes. In liquid waste disposal projects, suspended solids can cause the injection well to become clogged, and groundwater quality can be endangered by suspended clay and silt particles because of migration to the formation adjacent to the well bore. In addition to reducing the permeability of the soil, mobile particles can carry groundwater contaminants adsorbed onto their surfaces. Furthermore, as in the case of contamination from septic tanks, the particles themselves may be pathogens, i.e., bacteria and viruses.

Magnetic media for atomic diffraction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We are investigating the use of magnetic data recording media as an atomic diffraction grating. In order to optimize the visibility of diffraction order fringes we model the scattering of a thermal MOT cloud from the grating. We treat separately the region far from the grating where gravity dominates and the region near the grating where the magnetic field dominates. Thermal spreading is reduced by a combination of focusing (using a curved grating) and gravitational acceleration (which reduces the relative momentum spread of atoms incident upon the grating). Preliminary experimental scattering results from our rubidium MOT apparatus are presented. This work was supported by the American Chemical Society.

Social media use in nursing education.  

PubMed

As technological advances continue to expand connectivity and communication, the number of patients and nurses engaging in social media increases. Nurses play a significant role in identification, interpretation, and transmission of knowledge and information within healthcare. Social media is a platform that can assist nursing faculty in helping students to gain greater understanding of and/or skills in professional communication; health policy; patient privacy and ethics; and writing competencies. Although there are barriers to integration of social media within nursing education, there are quality resources available to assist faculty to integrate social media as a viable pedagogical method. This article discusses the background and significance of social media tools as pedagogy, and provides a brief review of literature. To assist nurse educators who may be using or considering social media tools, the article offers selected examples of sound and pedagogically functional use in course and program applications; consideration of privacy concerns and advantages and disadvantages; and tips for success.

Environmental professionals and the mass media  

SciTech Connect

Environmental professionals frequently attempt to use the mass media as vehicles for public information and education campaigns; the mass media, on the other hand, frequently engage in ''the use of subject matter and literary treatment calculated to arouse excited interest and emotional response.'' It is not then surprising that environmental professionals and others have given the media mixed reviews in terms of media performance in constructing the environment as a social problem. Yet it is difficult to see how pervasive public pro-environmental reportage by the mass media. The continuing challenge to environmental professional-media relations is one of facilitating a sober consideration of ways that will help enhance environmental quality and energy conservation without jeopardizing other human needs. 61 references.

Social media in clinical trials.  

PubMed

Social media has potential in clinical trials for pointing out trial issues, addressing barriers, educating, and engaging multiple groups involved in cancer clinical research. Social media is being used in clinical trials to highlight issues such as poor accrual and barriers; educate potential participants and physicians about clinical trial options; and is a potential indirect or direct method to improve accrual. We are moving from a passive "push" of information to patients to a "pull" of patients requesting information. Patients and advocates are often driving an otherwise reluctant health care system into communication. Online patient communities are creating new information repositories. Potential clinical trial participants are using the Twittersphere and other sources to learn about potential clinical trial options. We are seeing more organized patient-centric and patient-engaged forums with the potential to crowd source to improve clinical trial accrual and design. This is an evolving process that will meet many individual, institutional, and regulatory obstacles as we move forward in a changed research landscape. PMID:24857086

Capillary fracturing in granular media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The invasion of gas into liquid-saturated, deformable porous media occurs in many processes including gas venting, hydrocarbon recovery, and geologic CO2 sequestration. While fracturing during gas invasion has been observed in several studies, the underlying mechanisms and macroscopic patterns remain poorly understood. Here, we experimentally investigate the fracturing mechanism and resulting patterns during the invasion of air into a thin bed of water-saturated glass beads. The control parameters are the air injection rate, the bead size, and the vertical confining stress applied to the top of the bed. We identify three invasion regimes: capillary fingering, viscous fingering, and ``capillary fracturing,'' where capillary forces overcome frictional resistance and induce the opening of fracture-like conduits. We show that the transitions between the regimes are governed by a modified capillary number and a fracturing number. We then extend the experiments to investigate the effect of wettability. Our analysis predicts the emergence of fracturing in fine-grained media under low confining stress, a phenomenon that likely plays a fundamental role in many natural systems.

Tortuosity Model in Porous Media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Tortuosity is an important factor which affects water and solute transport in porous media. Although numerous methods have been developed to model tortuosity in unsaturated porous media based on specific immiscible fluid interfacial area, pore size, water content, as well as others, they are generally empirical and include unknown parameters. Perhaps the most physical definition of tortuosity T in the literature is as a ratio of an effective length to a straight line distance, making T>1. However, it is sometimes given as the inverse of this definition, therefore, its value would be less than 1. In this study, we use the first approach because it is completely compatible with the definition of the corresponding quantity in percolation theory. Our result, expressed for systems of variable saturation, is a power function of water content and the critical water content, and all model parameters e.g., fractal dimension of the shortest path, have physical meaning. The results can also be combined with percolation scaling results for the hydraulic or electrical conductivity to make an inference regarding the appropriate form to represent connectivity as a function of water content.

Seismic modeling in viscoelastic media  

SciTech Connect

Anelasticity is usually caused by a large number of physical mechanisms which can be modeled by different microstructural theories. A general way to take all these mechanisms into account is to use a phenomenologic model. Such a model which is consistent with the properties of anelastic media can be represented mechanically by a combination of springs and dash-pots. A suitable system can be constructed by the parallel connection of several standard linear elements and is referred to as the general standard linear solid rheology. Two relaxation functions that describe the dilatational and shear dissipation mechanisms of the medium are needed. This model properly describes the short and long term behaviors of materials with memory and is the basis for describing viscoelastic wave propagation. This work presents two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) forward modeling in linear viscoelastic media. The theory implements Boltzmann's superposition principle based on a spectrum of relaxation mechanisms in the time-domain equation of motion by the introduction of the memory variables. The algorithm uses a polynomial interpolation of the evolution operator for time integration and the Fourier pseudospectral method for computation of the spatial derivatives. This scheme has spectral accuracy for band-limited functions with no temporal or spatial dispersion, a very important fact in anelastic wave propagation. Examples are given of how to pose typical problems of viscoelastic forward modeling for geophysical problems in two and three dimensions.

Abstract Question Otitis media is a very common condition in pediatrics and can be quite distressing for children and their parents. Is there a role for antihistamines and decongestants in the management of acute otitis media or otitis media with effusion in children? Answer Traditionally, antihistamines and decongestants have been used in the treatment of otitis media; however, recent guidelines, which are based on study findings with negative results, recommend against routine use. No antihistamine-decongestant combination has been shown to be of clinically significant benefit, and there are potential adverse events that need to be taken into account.

Method And Apparatus For Arbitrarily Large Capacity Removable Media  

DOEpatents

A method and apparatus to handle multiple sets of removable media within a storage system. A first set of removable media are mounted on a set of drives. Data is accepted until the first set of removable media is filled. A second set of removable media is mounted on the drives, while the first set of removable media is removed. When the change in removable media is complete, writing of data proceeds on the second set of removable media. Data may be buffered while the change in removable media occurs. Alternatively, two sets of removable media may be mounted at the same time. When the first set of removable media is filled to a selected amount, the second set of removable media may then be used to write the data. A third set of removable media is set up or mounted for use, while the first set of removable media is removed.

Hypocoordinated solids in particulate media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We propose a "phase diagram" for particulate systems with purely repulsive contact forces, such as granular media and colloids. We characterize two classes of behavior as a function of the input kinetic energy per degree of freedom T0 and packing fraction deviation from jamming onset ?? =?-?J using simulations of frictionless disks. Isocoordinated solids (ICS) exist above jamming; they possess an average contact number equal to the isostatic value ziso. ICS display "strict" harmonic response, where the density of vibrational modes from the Fourier transform of the velocity autocorrelation function is a set of sharp peaks at eigenfrequencies ?kd of the dynamical matrix. In contrast, hypocoordinated solids (HCS) occur above and below jamming and possess fluctuating networks of interparticle contacts but do not undergo cage-breaking particle rearrangements. The density of vibrational frequencies for the HCS is not a collection of sharp peaks at ?kd, but it does possess a common form over a range of ?? and T0.

Bragg interactions in periodic media  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The interaction of electromagnetic waves of wavelength lambda with periodic structures of spatial period lambda are studied. The emphasis of the work is on Bragg interactions where lambda approximately equal to 2 lambda/N and the Bragg order N takes on the values 1, 2,.... An extended coupled waves (ECW) theory is developed for the case N greater or equal to 2 and the results of the theory are found to compare favorably with the exact results of Floquet theory. Numerous numerical results are displayed as Brillouin diagrams for the first few Bragg orders. Moreover, explicit expressions for coupling coefficients, bandgap shifts and bandgap widths are derived for singly periodic media. Particular note is taken of phase speeding effects.

Roentgen contrast media and fibrinolysis.  

PubMed

A review of the literature on the influence of contrast media (CM) on fibrinolysis showed that information currently available is contradictory, inconclusive and fragmentary. Results of some in vivo studies suggest that both ionic and nonionic CM increase fibrinolytic activity, either by lowering plasma plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 levels, by releasing endogenous tissue plasminogen activator and¿or by altering the fibrin meshwork of thrombi. Most in vitro studies on the subject contain results that are contradictory to those from in vivo studies. The discrepancies are due to obvious differences between systems which are, at best, only comparable under conditions of stagnant flow. Thus, great care should be exercised when extrapolating or interchanging data obtained in vivo and in vitro. PMID:8610513

An Introduction to Media Space  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the mid-1980s, Bob Stults and I created the first media space at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). From our initial office-to-office always-on real-time audio and video connections grew a switched network of continuous connections for a small laboratory split between Palo Alto, California and Portland, Oregon. Offices and pub¬lic spaces had cameras, microphones, video monitors, and computers. Users were in charge; they could turn their cameras or audio off, or focus cameras out of the window; they could choose to connect to one person or another; however, the underlying connection was always there, with no setup, changeable with a click of a mouse button.

Media-Augmented Exercise Machines  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Cardio-vascular exercise has been used to mitigate the muscle and cardiac atrophy associated with adaptation to micro-gravity environments. Several hours per day may be required. In confined spaces and long duration missions this kind of exercise is inevitably repetitive and rapidly becomes uninteresting. At the same time, there are pressures to accomplish as much as possible given the cost- per-hour for humans occupying orbiting or interplanetary. Media augmentation provides a the means to overlap activities in time by supplementing the exercise with social, recreational, training or collaborative activities and thereby reducing time pressures. In addition, the machine functions as an interface to a wide range of digital environments allowing for spatial variety in an otherwise confined environment. We hypothesize that the adoption of media augmented exercise machines will have a positive effect on psycho-social well-being on long duration missions. By organizing and supplementing exercise machines, data acquisition hardware, computers and displays into an interacting system this proposal increases functionality with limited additional mass. This paper reviews preliminary work on a project to augment exercise equipment in a manner that addresses these issues and at the same time opens possibilities for additional benefits. A testbed augmented exercise machine uses a specialty built cycle trainer as both input to a virtual environment and as an output device from it using spatialized sound, and visual displays, vibration transducers and variable resistance. The resulting interactivity increases a sense of engagement in the exercise, provides a rich experience of the digital environments. Activities in the virtual environment and accompanying physiological and psychological indicators may be correlated to track and evaluate the health of the crew.

Media has a complex interrelationship with mental illnesses. This narrative review takes a look at the various ways in which media and mental illnesses interact. Relevant scientific literature and electronic databases were searched, including Pubmed and GoogleScholar, to identify studies, viewpoints and recommendations using keywords related to media and mental illnesses. This review discusses both the positive and the negative portrayals of mental illnesses through the media. The portrayal of mental health professionals and psychiatric treatment is also discussed. The theories explaining the relationship of how media influences the attitudes and behavior are discussed. Media has also been suggested to be a risk factor for the genesis or exacerbation of mental illnesses like eating disorders and substance use disorders. The potential use of media to understand the psychopathology and plight of those with psychiatric disorders is referred to. The manner in which media can be used as a tool for change to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illnesses is explored. PMID:24823515

Mass Media Criticism as Transformational Rhetoric.  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Most messages from the mass media operate on the collective unconscious of a culture. The ethical consequence of such identification through unawareness is the transfer of decision making from consumers to image makers. The mass media critic can serve as a mediator of the ethical problems created by such a mode of identification. As mediating…

COMPETITION IN THE MEDIA AND ADVERTISING MARKETS  

Microsoft Academic Search

We examine how media competition is affected when making endogenous advertising rates. To this end, we revisit some well-known contributions in which advertising rates and volumes are viewed as exogenous, so that the effects of advertising on diversity and industry concentration only depend on the size of the audience, without taking into account how the media audience depends itself on

[Evaluation of chromogenic media in microbiological diagnostics].  

PubMed

The aim of the study was the evaluation ofchromogenic agars as a screening media in the routine microbiological diagnostics. 627 clinical samples were cultured on the chromogenic media: chromID S. aureus, chromID MRSA, chromID CPS3 and chromID ESBL from bioMerieux. The results of presumptive identification and detection of selected resistance mechanisms by chromogenic media were compared with results obtained with the conventional methods. Our studies revealed the highest sensitivities of chromID MRSA and chromID CPS3 (> 90%). The sensivities for chromID ESBL and chromID S. aureus were > 70%. All media were also highly specific (97%). This specificity for chromID S.aureus and chromID CPS3 was 100%. We conclude, that all tested media showed good performance in presumptive identification and detection of resistance mechanisms.

Application of SAFT to Layered, Anisotropic Media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The synthetic aperture focusing technique (SAFT) is used in ultrasonic inspection to give an enhanced image of defects in parts. Synthetic aperture focusing has been applied to isotropic media for decades. More recently it has been applied to anisotropic media, most prominently unidirectional and homogenized composites. Applying SAFT to anisotropic media is a more complex problem due to directional dependent velocities and beam skew phenomena. This paper presents a SAFT algorithm that treats structures with multiple anisotropic layers as commonly used for composite fabrication. By taking into account the orientation and thickness of each layer, an exact representation of the media is given; therefore better results can be obtained compared to homogenizing the media.

Paint removal using wheat starch blast media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A review of the Wheat Starch Blasting technology is presented. Laboratory evaluations covering Almen Arc testing on bare 2024-T3 aluminum and magnesium, as well as crack detection on 7075-T6 bare aluminum, are discussed. Comparisons with Type V plastic media show lower residual stresses are achieved on aluminum and magnesium with wheat starch media. Dry blasting effects on the detection of cracks confirms better crack visibility with wheat starch media versus Type V or Type II plastic media. Testing of wheat starch media in several composite test programs, including fiberglass, Kevlar, and graphite-epoxy composites, showed no fiber damage. Process developments and production experience at the first U.S. aircraft stripping facility are also reviewed. Corporate and regional aircraft are being stripped in this three nozzle dry blast hanger.

Use of Social Media by Pharmacy Preceptors  

PubMed Central

Objective. To define current use patterns of Facebook and Twitter among pharmacy preceptors and assess perceptions regarding use of social media within professional practice. Methods. An electronic survey instrument was sent to 315 pharmacists registered as advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE) preceptors for Purdue University College of Pharmacy. Results. Approximately 60% of the 155 respondents used a Facebook account and 9% used a Twitter account. Respondents were willing to complete continuing education (CE) credit (46%) using social media, and were interested in following professional organizations (39%) on social media; however, the majority were not interested in obtaining drug or disease-state information, identifying employment opportunities, or participating in clinical discussion forums via social media. Conclusion. Despite the growing popularity of social media across multiple disciplines, the majority of pharmacy preceptors surveyed were not willing to use these venues in professional practice.

Blue laser inorganic write-once media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With the advantages of low cost, portability and compliance with ROM disc, write once disk has become the most popular storage media for computer and audio/video application. In addition, write once media, like CD-R and DVD-/+ R, are used to store permanent or nonalterable information, such as financial data transitions, legal documentation, and medical data. Several write once recording materials, such as TeO[1], TeOPd[2] and Si/Cu [3] have been proposed to realize inorganic write once media. Moreover, we propose AlSi alloy [4] to be used for recording layer of write once media. It had good recording properties in DVD system although the reflectivity is too low to be used for DVD-R disk. In this paper, we report the further results in blue laser system, such as the static and dynamic characteristics of write once media.

Digital reverse propagation in focusing Kerr media  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lenses allow the formation of clear images in homogeneous linear media. Holography is an alternative imaging method, but its use is limited to cases in which it provides an advantage, such as three-dimensional imaging. In nonlinear media, lenses no longer work. The light produces intensity-dependent aberrations. The reverse propagation method used in digital holography to form images from recorded holograms works even in Kerr media [M. Tsang, D. Psaltis, and F. G. Omenetto, Opt. Lett.OPLEDP0146-959210.1364/OL.28.001873 28, 1873 (2003).]. The principle has been experimentally demonstrated recently in defocusing media [C.
