Comparison Between Monteiro DA Rocha and Wilhelm Olbers' Methods for the Determination of the Orbits of Comets  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In 1797, under von Zach sponsoring, Wilhelm Olbers published his work on the determination of the parabolic orbits of the comets - "Abhandlung tiber die leichteste und bequemste Methode, die Bahn eines Cometen aus einigen Beobachtungen zu berechnen von Wilhelm Olbers". Over the next century, this method would become the main tool to determine comets' parabolic orbits. Two years later, in 1799, an article of Monteiro da Rocha entitled "Determinação das Orbitas dos Cometas" is published in Memórias da Academia Real das Ciências de Lisboa. This study publishes a method to solve the problem of the determination of comets' orbits very similar with the one proposed by Olbers. In the current article we intend to provide some information about the method of Monteiro da Rocha, which in fact was formerly formulated circa 16-17 years in advance to Olbers method, and to present the results of the quantitative side-by-side comparison of methods.

MyDas, an Extensible Java DAS Server  

PubMed Central

A large number of diverse, complex, and distributed data resources are currently available in the Bioinformatics domain. The pace of discovery and the diversity of information means that centralised reference databases like UniProt and Ensembl cannot integrate all potentially relevant information sources. From a user perspective however, centralised access to all relevant information concerning a specific query is essential. The Distributed Annotation System (DAS) defines a communication protocol to exchange annotations on genomic and protein sequences; this standardisation enables clients to retrieve data from a myriad of sources, thus offering centralised access to end-users. We introduce MyDas, a web server that facilitates the publishing of biological annotations according to the DAS specification. It deals with the common functionality requirements of making data available, while also providing an extension mechanism in order to implement the specifics of data store interaction. MyDas allows the user to define where the required information is located along with its structure, and is then responsible for the communication protocol details.

"Das Konkrete ist das Abstrakte, an das man sich schließlich gewöhnt hat." (Laurent Schwartz) Über den Ablauf des mathematischen Verstehens  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Die im Titel genannte Aussage findet sich in den Lebenserinnerungen von Laurent Schwartz (1915-2002), einem der fruchtbarsten Mathematiker, Mitglied der Gruppe Bourbaki. Im Original lautet die Aussage: "un objet concret est un objet abstrait auquel on a fini par s'habituer." Schwartz erläutert sie am Beispiel des Integrals über {e^{-1/2{x^2}}} , das den Wert Wurzel aus 2? hat und in dem sich also die Zahlen e und ? verknüpfen. Was Schwartz aber vor allem ausdrücken will, ist dies: Das mathematische Verständnisd geht langsam vor sich und es bedarf der Anstrengung. "Es ist eine Frage der Zeit und der Energie", sagt Schwartz, und gerade dies mache es so schwer, die höhere Mathematik unter das Volk zu bringen. Das Lernen und Lehren von Mathematik laufe eben mühevoll und langsam ab.

Seit 1960 spielt das Hermann-Gitter in der Sehforschung eine wichtige Rolle. An dem Muster können Modelle zur Informationsverarbeitung im visuellen System geprüft werden. Inzwischen gibt es eine ganze Reihe von Modifikationen des Urmusters, die neue Wahrnehmungseffekte verursachen. Das Hermann-Gitter ist als Lackmustest für sehphysiologische Modelle des Helligkeitskontrasts bis heute aktuell. Die vielfältigen Abwandlungen des Hermann-Gitters werfen zahlreiche neue Fragen auf, für die es zurzeit noch keine schlüssigen Antworten gibt.

Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of influenza virus mutants selected with the sialidase fusion protein DAS181  

PubMed Central

Background Influenza viruses (IFVs) frequently achieve resistance to antiviral drugs, necessitating the development of compounds with novel mechanisms of action. DAS181 (Fludase®), a sialidase fusion protein, may have a reduced potential for generating drug resistance due to its novel host-targeting mechanism of action. Methods IFV strains B/Maryland/1/59 and A/Victoria/3/75 (H3N2) were subjected to >30 passages under increasing selective pressure with DAS181. The DAS181-selected IFV isolates were characterized in vitro and in mice. Results Despite extensive passaging, DAS181-selected viruses exhibited a very low level of resistance to DAS181, which ranged between 3- and 18-fold increase in EC50. DAS181-selected viruses displayed an attenuated phenotype in vitro, as exhibited by slower growth, smaller plaque size and increased particle to pfu ratios relative to wild-type virus. Further, the DAS181 resistance phenotype was unstable and was substantially reversed over time upon DAS181 withdrawal. In mice, the DAS181-selected viruses exhibited no greater virulence than their wild-type counterparts. Genotypic and phenotypic analysis of DAS181-selected viruses revealed mutations in the haemagglutinin (HA) and neuraminidase (NA) molecules and also changes in HA and NA function. Conclusions Results indicate that resistance to DAS181 is minimal and unstable. The DAS181-selected IFV isolates exhibit reduced fitness in vitro, likely due to altered HA and NA functions.

Sobre o uso das séries de Puiseux em mecanica celeste  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Neste trabalho é apresentada uma demonstração do uso dos diferentes desenvolvimentos em séries para as equações de perturbação em Mecânica Celeste no marco Hamiltoniano. Em trabalhos clássicos como os de Poincaré (Poincaré, 1893) por exemplo, já esta planteado o uso de potências não inteiras no pequeno parâmetro, o que evidencia a não analiticidade das funções quando uma ressonância ocorre. Nestes trabalhos os desenvolvimentos são na raíz quadrada da massa de Júpiter (o pequeno parâmetro). Mais recentemente (Ferraz-Mello, 1985) outros tipos de desenvolvimentos foram aplicados modificando substancialmente as ordens de grandeza e a velocidade de convergência das séries. Com esta abordagem, os desenvolvimentos foram expressados em termos da raíz cúbica do pequeno parâmetro. Neste trabalho apresentamos um enfoque geral, onde os diferentes tipos de desenvolvimentos em séries de Puiseux (Valiron, 1950) são obtidos a partir da aplicação de Teorema de Preparação de Weierstrass (Goursat, 1916) considerando a equação de Hamilton-Jacobi como uma equação algébrica. Os resultados são aplicados ao problema restrito dos três corpos em ressonância de primeira ordem e, dependendo da grandeza da excentricidade do asteróide em relação à de Júpiter, obtemos os diferentes desenvolvimentos, em raíz quadrada ou raíz cúbica da massa de Júpiter.

Optimiertes Aggregate Management - Das "Poolen`` von Aggregaten und das "Bündeln`` von Leistungen ist eine Chance zur Kostensenkung  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Das "Poolen“ von Aggregaten und das "Bündeln“ von Leistungen ist eine Chance zur Kostensenkung. In diesem Beitrag wird am Beispiel der InfraServ Knapsack gezeigt, wie durch sinnvolle Synergien erhebliche Kosten eingespart werden können. Zu einem modernen und flexiblen Full-Service-Anbieter im Aggregate Management gehören neben verfahrenstechnischem und werkstoffwissenschaftlichem Know-How vor allem auch der praktische Umgang mit Analysemethoden wie Life Cycle Costing (LCC) oder Root Cause Analysis (RCA). Auch eine optimale Aggregatauslegung ist im Hinblick auf stetig steigende Energiekosten für die Betreiber ein wichtiger Zusatznutzen. Im Folgenden werden neben den Methoden und den damit erzielten Kostenreduzierungen an aktuellen Beispielen aus dem Betriebsalltag von Chemie- und Infrastrukturanlagen auch die benötigten Services für ein effizientes "Poolen“ dargestellt. Bei Beteiligung an einem existenten Aggregatepool oder Gründung und Zusammenschluss zu einem neuen Pool kann man zudem von den Kenntnissen und Erfahrungen Anderer profitieren. Vorhaltekosten von Ersatzteilen und Ersatzaggregaten können durch einen Pool drastisch reduziert werden. Darüber hinaus kann der Full-Service-Anbieter auch die benötigten Investitionsmittel zu Anschaffung kompletter Aggregate zur Verfügung stellen.

A safety evaluation of DAS181, a sialidase fusion protein, in rodents.  

PubMed

DAS181 is a novel inhaled drug candidate blocking influenza virus (IFV) and parainfluenza virus (PIV) infections through removal of sialic acid receptors from epithelial surface of the respiratory tract. To support clinical development, a 28-day Good Laboratory Practices inhalation toxicology study was conducted in Sprague-Dawley rats. In this study, achieved average daily doses based on exposure concentrations were 0.47, 0.90, 1.55, and 3.00 mg/kg/day of DAS181 in a dry powder formulation. DAS181 was well tolerated at all dose levels, and there were no significant toxicological findings. DAS181 administration did not affect animal body weight, food consumption, clinical signs, ophthalmology, respiratory parameters, or organ weight. Gross pathology evaluations were unremarkable. Histological examination of the lungs was devoid of pulmonary tissue damage, and findings were limited to mild and transient changes indicative of exposure and clearance of a foreign protein. DAS181 did not show any cytotoxic effects on human and animal primary cells, including hepatocytes, skeletal muscle cells, osteoblasts, or respiratory epithelial cells. DAS181 did not cause direct or indirect hemolysis. A laboratory abnormality observed in the 28-day toxicology study was mild and transient anemia in male rats at the 3.00 mg/kg dose, which is an expected outcome of enhanced clearance of desialylated red blood cells resulting from systemic exposure with DAS181. Another laboratory observation was a transient dose-dependent elevation in alkaline phosphatase (ALP), which can be attributed to reduced ALP clearance resulting from increased protein desialylation due to DAS181 systemic exposure. These laboratory parameters returned to normal at the end of the recovery period. PMID:21572096

Development and evaluation of a DAS-ELISA for rapid detection of avian influenza viruses.  

PubMed

Rapid detection of avian influenza virus (AIV) infection is critical for control of avian influenza (AI) and for reducing the risk of pandemic human influenza. A double antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (DAS-ELISA) was developed for this purpose. The method employed a monoclonal antibody (MAb) as the capture antibody and rabbit polyclonal IgG labeled with horseradish peroxidase as the detector antibody, and both antibodies were against type-specific influenza A nucleoprotein (NP). The DAS-ELISA could detect minimally 2.5 ng of influenza viral protein in virus preparations treated with Triton X-100, which is equvilent to 2.5 x 10(2) EID50 virus particles. This DAS-ELISA could detect all 15n AIV subtypes (H1-H15) and did not cross react with other avian pathogens tested. The DAS-ELISA were directly compared with virus isolation (VI) in embryonated chicken eggs, the current standard of influenza virus detection, for 805 chicken samples. The DAS-ELISA results correlated with VI results for 98.6% of these samples, indicating a sensitivity of 97.4% and specificity of 100%. The method was further tested with H5N1 and H9N2 AIV experimentally infected chickens, ducks, and pigeons, as well as field samples obtained from central China in 2005. The DAS-ELISA method has demonstrated application potential as an AIV screening tool and as a supplement for virus isolation in Asia. PMID:17039829

DAS181, a sialidase fusion protein, protects human airway epithelium against influenza virus infection: an in vitro pharmacodynamic analysis  

PubMed Central

Objectives The influenza virus (IFV) infection models commonly used to evaluate antiviral agents (e.g. MDCK cell line and mice) are limited by physiological differences from the human respiratory tract in vivo. Here we report the pharmacodynamics of DAS181, a sialidase fusion protein that inhibits influenza infection, in the model systems of well-defined human airway epithelium (HAE) culture and ex vivo culture of fresh human bronchial tissue, both of which are close mimics of the human respiratory tract in vivo. Methods HAE culture and ex vivo human bronchi were used to evaluate the sialic acid removal and regeneration efficiency and IFV inhibition after various DAS181 treatment levels and regimens. Results DAS181 effectively desialylates HAE cultures and ex vivo bronchi tissues and therefore potently inhibits replication of different IFV strains. The treatment effect of DAS181 occurs immediately upon application to the epithelial surface and is unaffected by the respiratory mucus. In both HAE and human bronchial tissue, the inhibitory effect of DAS181 treatment lasts for at least 2 days. Approximately 80% epithelial surface desialylation and significant anti-IFV efficacy can be achieved at topical concentrations of DAS181 in the range of 5–10 µg/cm2 when applied once daily. An additional treatment or a higher loading dose of DAS181 on the first day provides significant additional treatment benefit. Comparing the effect of DAS181 versus its two analogues, DAS180 and DAS185, has confirmed that sialidase function is critical for DAS181, and the cell-binding domain (amphiregulin tag) prolongs DAS181 retention and potentiates its function. Conclusions These results provide valuable insights into DAS181 treatment dose and potential regimens in the clinical setting.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The SeaWiFS Data Analysis System (SeaDAS) is a comprehensive software package for the processing, display, and analysis of ocean data from a variety of satellite sensors. Continuous development and user support by programmers and scientists for more than a decade has helped to make SeaDAS the most widely used software package in the world for ocean color applications, with a growing base of users from the land and sea surface temperature community. Full processing support for past (CZCS, OCTS, MOS) and present (SeaWiFS, MODIS) sensors, and anticipated support for future missions such as NPP/VIIRS, enables end users to reproduce the standard ocean archive product suite distributed by NASA's Ocean Biology Processing Group (OBPG), as well as a variety of evaluation and intermediate ocean, land, and atmospheric products. Availability of the processing algorithm source codes and a software build environment also provide users with the tools to implement custom algorithms. Recent SeaDAS enhancements include synchronization of MODIS processing with the latest code and calibration updates from the MODIS Calibration Support Team (MCST), support for all levels of MODIS processing including Direct Broadcast, a port to the Macintosh OS X operating system, release of the display/analysis-only SeaDAS-Lite, and an extremely active web-based user support forum.

Compositional safety of event DAS-40278-9 (AAD-1) herbicide-tolerant maize.  

PubMed

Event DAS-40278-9 maize expresses the aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase-1 enzyme, which was originally identified in the soil bacterium Sphingobium herbicidovorans. This enzyme degrades 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) and aryloxyphenoxypropionate herbicides (e.g., haloxyfop, cyhalofop, quizalofop, etc.); therefore, plants that contain this enzyme are tolerant to these herbicides. We employed the substantial equivalence approach to investigate the compositional safety of event DAS-40278-9 maize. A total of 82 different compositional analyses were conducted to evaluate the equivalence of event DAS-40278-9 and conventional maize. Analyte levels within the transgenic entries were either within literature ranges for non-transgenic maize or statistically indistinguishable from the non-transgenic near-isogenic hybrid, thus indicating substantial equivalence between event DAS-40278-9 and its conventional counterpart. These results agree with dozens of published studies for other transgenic events where input traits were found to have a negligible effect on crop composition compared with traditional breeding methods.

Sidebands in dynamic angle spinning (DAS) and double rotation (DOR) NMR.  

PubMed

A theory of dynamic angle spinning (DAS) and double rotation (DOR) NMR is described using average Hamiltonian and irreducible tensor methods. Sideband intensities in DAS and DOR spectra are analyzed by both the moment and Bessel function methods, and general formulae are derived. Results show that the DAS moments depend on the relative rotor phase between the first and the second evolution periods, whereas the second and third DOR moments are independent of the relative phase between the inner and outer rotors. Sideband intensities in DAS spectra also depend on the relative rotor phases between evolution at the first and second angles, as well as on the ratio of time spent at each angle. Sideband intensities and phases in DOR spectra are related to the relative rotor phases between the inner and outer rotors, and the sideband pattern is determined by the ratio of the inner and outer rotor spinning speeds. An inversion symmetry of the odd numbered DOR sidebands at the relative rotor phase gamma r = 0 degree, 180 degrees permits the elimination of these sidebands. Finally, numerical simulations are implemented and shown to agree with experimental results. Quadrupolar parameters can therefore be recovered either by calculating the second and third moments or by simulating the sideband intensities and phases. PMID:1365742

Background: This study analyzed the psychometric properties of the Dyadic Adjustment Scale (DAS). Method: A sample of 1,180 participants, 590 adult heterosexual couples, from the Community of Madrid was examined via confirmatory factor analysis. Results: The results indicate that the factor structure of this scale fits the hierarchical factor model proposed by the test authors. The internal consistency, estimated using Cronbach's alpha coefficient was satisfactory for the total scale (alpha = .80) and ranged from .13 to .88 for the subscales. Convergent validity was adequate in comparison to the Negotiation subscale (emotional and cognitive) from the Revised Conflict Tactics Scales (CTS2). No significant differences were observed between genders. Finally, concordance or agreement between partners was high. The lowest agreement was found for the Affectional Expression subscale. Conclusions: After examining the psychometric properties, the DAS was found to be a reliable and valid measurement of the sampled community of couples. PMID:24124789

AIDS patients and HIV carriers who are aware of their condition are under multiple kinds of stress with adverse effects on their emotional state and personal and social activity. This paper reports the psychometric properties of the DAS (Death Anxiety Scale) using the Spanish version in the clinical setting. The sample is made up of 148 HIV/AIDS patients (109 men and 39 women). The internal consistency of the scale was .72 and its test-retest reliability was .70. Principal components analysis extracted five factors that jointly accounted for 56.5% of the total variance. As, on the whole, these results are very similar to those reported by other authors, it is concluded that the Spanish DAS is a valid instrument for the assessment of death anxiety in Spanish HIV/AIDS patients.

Antiviral drug resistance for influenza therapies remains a concern due to the high prevalence of H1N1 2009 seasonal influenza isolates which display H274Y associated oseltamivir-resistance. Furthermore, the emergence of novel H1N1 raises the potential that additional reassortments can occur, resulting in drug resistant virus. Thus, additional antiviral approaches are urgently needed. DAS181 (Fludase®), a sialidase fusion protein, has been shown

Manuel Rocha Medal Recipient Shear Strength of Rock Joints Based on Quantified Surface Description  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

One of the primary objectives of this work is to improve the understanding of the frictional behaviour of rough rock joints under shear loads, and to relate its shear strength to the “shape” of the joint interface (roughness). Discontinuities have, indeed, an important influence on the deformational behaviour of rock systems. The choice of a general criterion to determine the shear strength of rough rock joints is a problem that has been investigated for many years. Numerous shear models have been proposed to relate shear-strength to measurable joint parameters, but their limitations have to be recognized. The main problem is how to measure and quantify the roughness in order to introduce the morphological aspect of the joint into a shear strength criterion. The first part of this work focuses on the measurement and description of how roughness influences the size and distribution of contact areas during shearing. It has been found that the variation of the contact area can be expressed as a function of the local dip of the surface, measured along the shear direction. The close agreement between this empirical description of the potential contact area and surface measurements permits one to predict the real contact area involved in the phenomenon. In the second part of the work, a new shear strength criterion is proposed to model the shear resistance of joints under constant normal load conditions. It is based on the proposed empirical estimation of rock joint roughness, and on the results from more than fifty constant-normal-load direct-shear tests performed on replicas of tensile joints and on induced tensile fractures for seven rock types. The proposed model is able to describe experimental shear tests conducted in the laboratory, and the required parameters can be easily measured through standard laboratory tests.

Annotation and visualization of endogenous retroviral sequences using the Distributed Annotation System (DAS) and eBioX  

PubMed Central

Background The Distributed Annotation System (DAS) is a widely used network protocol for sharing biological information. The distributed aspects of the protocol enable the use of various reference and annotation servers for connecting biological sequence data to pertinent annotations in order to depict an integrated view of the data for the final user. Results An annotation server has been devised to provide information about the endogenous retroviruses detected and annotated by a specialized in silico tool called RetroTector. We describe the procedure to implement the DAS 1.5 protocol commands necessary for constructing the DAS annotation server. We use our server to exemplify those steps. Data distribution is kept separated from visualization which is carried out by eBioX, an easy to use open source program incorporating multiple bioinformatics utilities. Some well characterized endogenous retroviruses are shown in two different DAS clients. A rapid analysis of areas free from retroviral insertions could be facilitated by our annotations. Conclusion The DAS protocol has shown to be advantageous in the distribution of endogenous retrovirus data. The distributed nature of the protocol is also found to aid in combining annotation and visualization along a genome in order to enhance the understanding of ERV contribution to its evolution. Reference and annotation servers are conjointly used by eBioX to provide visualization of ERV annotations as well as other data sources. Our DAS data source can be found in the central public DAS service repository, , or at .

Garlic extract diallyl sulfide (DAS) activates nuclear receptor CAR to induce the Sult1e1 gene in mouse liver.  

PubMed

Constituent chemicals in garlic extract are known to induce phase I and phase II enzymes in rodent livers. Here we have utilized Car(+/+) and Car(-/-) mice to demonstrate that the nuclear xenobiotic receptor CAR regulated the induction of the estrogen sulfotransferase Sult1e1 gene by diallyl sulfide (DAS) treatment in mouse liver. DAS treatment caused CAR accumulation in the nucleus, resulting in a remarkable increase of SULT1E1 mRNA (3,200 fold) and protein in the livers of Car(+/+) females but not of Car(-/-) female mice. DAS also induced other CAR-regulated genes such as Cyp2b10, Cyp3a11 and Gadd45?. Compared with the rapid increase of these mRNA levels, which began as early as 6 hours after DAS treatment, the levels of SULT1E1 mRNA began increasing after 24 hours. This slow response to DAS suggested that CAR required an additional factor to activate the Sult1e1 gene or that this activation was indirect. Despite the remarkable induction of SULT1E1, there was no decrease in the serum levels of endogenous E2 or increase of estrone sulfate while the clearance of exogenously administrated E2 was accelerated in DAS treated mice.

Variações nos períodos de pulsação das estrelas PG 1159-035 e G117-B15-A  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A medida que uma estrela evolui, sua trajetória no diagrama-HR passa pelas chamadas "faixas de instabilidade" podendo tornar-se uma variável. Ao longo da seqüência das anãs brancas existem três faixas de instabilidade, contando com a faixa das pré-anãs brancas (DOs). Estrelas nestas faixas podem apresentar pulsações não-radiais com períodos bastante estáveis, ente 100 e 1000 segundos. Os períodos de pulsação sofrem variações com a evolução da estrela, podendo aumentar ou diminuir. As DOs, por serem mais quentes evoluem mais rapidamente e isto faz com que as variações em seus períodos de pulsação sejam maiores (em magnitude) do que as variações que ocorrem nos períodos de pulsação de anãs brancas pulsantes mais frias como as DBs e as DAs. Neste trabalho apresentamos os resultados das medidas das variações de períodos de pulsação de duas estrelas: a PG 1159-035 e a G117-B15-A. Essas duas estrelas estão nos extremos da seqüência das anãs brancas: a PG 1159-035 é uma pré-anã branca (DO) e seus períodos de pulsação variam na ordem de 1 segundo a cada 3000 anos. Já a G117-B15-A é uma DA e seus períodos de pulsação variam cerca de 1 segundo a cada 30 milhões de anos.

Trends and variability of climate and river flow in the region of Costa das Baleias, Brazil.  

PubMed

There is an ongoing effort by the scientific community to regionalize climate studies to support local development plans. The area of interest is the Costa das Baleias on the east coast of northeast Brazil. It is located in a transition region of precipitation trends, and so assessing the local signal and magnitude is necessary. A series of annual anomalies of surface air temperature, precipitation and river discharge were analyzed from 1946 to 2010. The modified Mann-Kendall test was applied to detect trends. Temperature anomalies showed a consistent positive trend since 1950. Precipitation anomalies tended to decrease, though not significantly. River discharge rates showed a consistent positive trend. However, from the 1980s onwards, both the precipitation and the river discharge anomalies had the same decreasing tendency. The precipitation and discharge behavior are likely due to the combined effect of human interventions in the river basins including local, synoptic and global climate effects. The inter-annual variability was characterized by spectral analysis. Cycles were identified for the precipitation and the river discharge with periods of 2-3 years, 3-4 years, 7-8 years and 11-12 years. The decadal frequency is consistent with the South Atlantic and El Niño indices. This work strongly indicates that climate is changing in Costa das Baleias and further work is needed to investigate the mechanisms that link local to large-scale variability. PMID:23128620

DAS181, a novel sialidase fusion protein, protects mice from lethal avian influenza H5N1 virus infection.  

PubMed

Increasing resistance to currently available influenza antivirals highlights the need to develop alternate approaches for the prevention and/or treatment of influenza. DAS181 (Fludase), a novel sialidase fusion protein that enzymatically removes sialic acids on respiratory epithelium, exhibits potent antiviral activity against influenza A and B viruses. Here, we use a mouse model to evaluate the efficacy of DAS181 treatment against a highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N1 virus. When used to treat mice daily beginning 1 day before infection with A/Vietnam/1203/2004(H5N1) virus, DAS181 treatment at 1 mg/kg/day protected 100% of mice from fatal disease, prevented viral dissemination to the brain, and effectively blocked infection in 70% of mice. DAS181 at 1 mg/kg/day was also effective therapeutically, conferring enhanced survival of H5N1 virus-challenged mice when treatment was begun 72 h after infection. This notable antiviral activity underscores the potential utility of DAS181 as a new class of drug that is effective against influenza viruses with pandemic potential. PMID:18008229

A Datta-Das transistor and conductance switch based on a zigzag graphene nanoribbon  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We theoretically investigate the transport properties of a zigzag graphene nanoribbon, where there exists the Rashba spin-orbit coupling only in the central region modulated by a gate voltage. Using the approach of nonequilibrium Green function, we show that when the two electrode regions are ferromagnetic but the central region is nonmagnetic, the device based on graphene has the behavior of the Datta-Das transistor and at the same time a giant magnetoresistance effect can be observed. Inversely, when the central region has a magnetization but the two electrode regions are nonmagnetic, the device can work as a conductance switch, because an energy gap appears in the band structure of the central graphene ribbon under the coaction of the Rashba spin-orbit coupling and the magnetization. In addition, we find that the behavior of the conductance switch of the device is robust when the weak disorder is present in the system.

Subchronic feeding study with genetically modified stacked trait lepidopteran and coleopteran resistant (DAS-Ø15Ø7-1xDAS-59122-7) maize grain in Sprague-Dawley rats.  

PubMed

DAS-Ø15Ø7-1xDAS-59122-7 (1507x59122) is a genetically modified (GM) maize hybrid that was produced by crossing of two GM maize inbreds; DAS-Ø15Ø7-1 and DAS-59122-7. This hybrid cross expresses four transgenic proteins: Cry1F and PAT (from DAS-Ø15Ø7-1) and Cry34Ab1/Cry35Ab1 and PAT (from DAS-59122-7) that confer resistance to lepidopteran and coleopteran pests and tolerance to the herbicidal active ingredient glufosinate-ammonium. The current subchronic feeding study was conducted in Sprague-Dawley rats to evaluate the potential health effects of long-term consumption of a rodent diet containing 1507x59122 maize grain compared with a diet containing maize grain from its near-isogenic control (091). Diets formulated with three unrelated non-GM commercial hybrids (3573, 35P12, 36G12) were also included for within study reference data. All diets contained 34% (w/wt) maize grain and were prepared according to the specifications of PMI((R)) Nutrition International, LLC Certified Rodent LabDiet((R)) 5002 (PMI((R)) 5002). Diets were fed ad libitum to rats for at least 92days. OECD 408 response variables from rats fed the 1507x59122 diet were compared with those from rats fed the 091 control diet. No toxicologically significant differences were observed in nutritional performance variables, clinical and neurobehavioral signs, ophthalmology, clinical pathology (hematology, clinical chemistry, coagulation, and urinalysis), organ weights, and gross and microscopic pathology between rats in the 091 and 1507x59122 treatment groups. The results from this study demonstrate that 1507x59122 maize grain is as safe and nutritious as non-GM maize grain and support the concept that crossing of two safe GM maize events results in production of a safe stacked GM event.

The association of anti-CCP1 antibodies with disease activity score 28 (DAS-28) in rheumatoid arthritis  

PubMed Central

Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is one of the most frequent autoimmune diseases in the world which affect about 1% of people. Measurement of the anti-CCP1 antibody titer in these patients is one of the new tests that is available in our country and in the multiple studies has been shown to be more specific than rheumatoid factor in the diagnosis of RA (97%). This test becomes positive in early stage of disease and it has a high predictive value. The aim of our study was to determine the relationship between anti-CCP1 antibody and disease activity score 28 (DAS-28) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was performed in 90 patients with RA for evaluating the relation between anti-CCP1 antibody titer and DAS-28, patients were selected by consecutive method; serum samples were collected from patients. Anti-CCP1 antibody was measured by the corresponding enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Additionally, erythrocyte sedimentation rates (ESR), rheumatoid factor (RF), DAS-28, visual analog scale (VAS) were determined in patients with RA. Statistical analysis performed with t-test and Pearson's correlations coefficient. Results: Anti-CCP1 level was associated with DAS-28 (P<0.001, r=0.35). The largest linear correlation was between anti-CCP1 antibody levels and VAS; it means that higher titers of anti-CCP1 antibody are associated with more painful joints in our patients. The average of DAS-28 in our positive and negative anti-CCP1 antibody patients was 5.07±1.1 and 3.5±1.5, respectively (P<0.05). Conclusion: There was moderate correlation between anti-CCP1 titer and DAS-28.

Observações das explosões cósmicas de raios gama GRB021004 e GRB021211 com o satélite HETE  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

O High Energy Transient Explorer (HETE) é o primeiro satélite inteiramente dedicado ao estudo das explosões cósmicas de raios gama (ECRGs). Lançado em 9 de outubro de 2000, o HETE possui instrumentação capaz de observar as ECRGs desde o UV até raios gama e localizá-las com precisão de ~ 1-10 minutos de arco. As localizações das ECRGs detectadas são disseminadas rapidamente (em alguns segundos) pela Internet através de uma rede de estações de recepção ao longo do equador. A participação brasileira nesse projeto se dá através da montagem e operação de uma estação de recepção em Natal, RN, e da participação na equipe científica da missão. Neste trabalho são apresentados resultados da observação pelo HETE de duas ECRGs: GRB 021004 e GRB 021211. A GRB021004 foi detectada em raios gama pelo HETE em 4 de outubro de 2002 e localizada em raios-X em apenas 48 s, quando a emissão de raios gama ainda estava se processando. A explosão, relativamente brilhante e longa, durou aproximadamente 100 s. Um transiente óptico de magnitude 15 foi detectado no local da explosão nove minutos após o evento, e observações realizadas após 7 horas determinaram um desvio para o vermelho de absorção de 1,6. O GRB021004 foi o burst mais bem observado até o momento e suas observações em vários comprimentos de onda têm sido fundamentais para o aprimoramento dos modelos de ECRGs. O GRB21211, um burst brilhante e rico em raios-X, foi detectado em 11 de dezembro de 2002 e localizado em raios-X em 22 s após o início do evento. A duração do burst foi de 2,3 s em altas energias (85 a 400 keV) e de 8,5 s em baixas energias (2 a 10 keV). Caso essa explosão não tivesse sido rapidamente localizada pelo HETE, ela teria sido classificada como "opticamente escura", já que o transiente óptico decaiu rapidamente de R < 14 a R»19 dentro dos primeiros 20 minutos e já estava mais fraco do que R»23 depois de 24 horas da ocorrência do burst. Serão discutidas as implicações desse resultado nos modelos de afterglows de ECRGs.

Expression of Das-1, Ki67 and sulfuric proteins in gastric cardia adenocarcinoma and intestinal metaplasia lesions  

PubMed Central

The aim of this study was to characterize histo-chemical patterns and Das-1 and Ki67 protein expression in gastric cardia adenocarcinoma (GCA) and intestinal metaplasia (IM) lesions adjacent to GCA. Histochemical techniques, including Alcian blue/periodic acid-Schiff (AB/PAS), high iron diamine/Alcian blue (HID/AB) and avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex (ABC) immunohistochemistry were applied to GCA and IM samples from patients (n=200) in Linzhou, Henan, China, a high incidence area for GCA and esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). The detection rate of IM lesions in resected tissues adjacent to GCA was 32.5% (65/200). GCA and IM lesions presented a high frequency of Das-1 and Ki67-positive staining with statistical significance (P<0.01). The expression of sulfuric proteins did not show co-expression with Das-1 and Ki67 in GCA and surrounding IM lesions (P>0.05) from the same GCA patient. The high frequency of co-expression of Das-1 and Ki67 in GCA and adjacent IM lesions indicates that IM adjacent to GCA may undergo similar molecular changes to GCA, which may be one of the mechanisms for malignant transformation of IM in the population studied.

Conduit/MIDL/Heliolib/das2: Gaining Efficiency by Sharing Development Within and Between Missions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a code re-use scenario in which a common framework is used not only for similar tools from mission to mission, but also for diverse phases of development within a mission. Deploying related tools throughout mission development significantly eases the software learning curve for scientists and reduces overall development time and cost. We present our successes in merging the design and creation of ground support, testing and calibration software with analysis software through use of a common semantic layer (Heliolib) and a common data display engine (das2/Autoplot), both of which are used in our telemetry processing framework (Conduit) and our science analysis environment (MIDL). We also use the same common layer and code base between missions, promoting the idea of "Learn once, use everywhere." Applications of our framework are described for the following Heliospheric and Planetary missions (which range from under development to fully operational): MMS/EIS, RBSP/RB-SPICE, JUNO/JEDI, and Voyager/LECP. The Voyager/LECP science analysis environment is publicly accessible at: http://sd-www.jhuapl.edu/VOYAGER/VMIDL_public/.

Periodicity of microfilariae of human filariasis analysed by a trigonometric method (Aikat and Das).  

PubMed

The microfilarial periodicity of human filariae was characterized statistically by fitting the observed change of microfilaria (mf) counts to the formula of a simple harmonic wave using two parameters, the peak hour (K) and periodicity index (D) (Sasa & Tanaka, 1972, 1974). Later Aikat and Das (1976) proposed a simple calculation method using trigonometry (A-D method) to determine the peak hour (K) and periodicity index (P). All data of microfilarial periodicity analysed previously by the method of Sasa and Tanaka (S-T method) were calculated again by the A-D method in the present study to evaluate the latter method. The results of calculations showed that P was not proportional to D and the ratios of P/D were mostly smaller than expected, especially when P or D was small in less periodic forms. The peak hour calculated by the A-D method did not differ much from that calculated by the S-T method. Goodness of fit was improved slightly by the A-K method in two thirds of analysed data. The classification of human filariae in respect of the type of periodicity was, however, changed little by the results calculated by the A-D method. PMID:7024589

A review and empirical study of the composite scales of the Das-Naglieri cognitive assessment system  

PubMed Central

Alexander Luria’s model of the working brain consisting of three functional units was formulated through the examination of hundreds of focal brain-injury patients. Several psychometric instruments based on Luria’s syndrome analysis and accompanying qualitative tasks have been developed since the 1970s. In the mid-1970s, JP Das and colleagues defined a specific cognitive processes model based directly on Luria’s two coding units termed simultaneous and successive by studying diverse cross-cultural, ability, and socioeconomic strata. The cognitive assessment system is based on the PASS model of cognitive processes and consists of four composite scales of Planning–Attention–Simultaneous–Successive (PASS) devised by Naglieri and Das in 1997. Das and colleagues developed the two new scales of planning and attention to more closely model Luria’s theory of higher cortical functions. In this paper a theoretical review of Luria’s theory, Das and colleagues elaboration of Luria’s model, and the neural correlates of PASS composite scales based on extant studies is summarized. A brief empirical study of the neuropsychological specificity of the PASS composite scales in a sample of 33 focal cortical stroke patients using cluster analysis is then discussed. Planning and simultaneous were sensitive to right hemisphere lesions. These findings were integrated with recent functional neuroimaging studies of PASS scales. In sum it was found that simultaneous is strongly dependent on dual bilateral occipitoparietal interhemispheric coordination whereas successive demonstrated left frontotemporal specificity with some evidence of interhemispheric coordination across the prefrontal cortex. Hence, support for the validity of the PASS composite scales was found as well as for the axiom of the independence of code content from code type originally specified in 1994 by Das, Naglieri, and Kirby.

MiDas: automatic extraction of a common domain of discourse in sleep medicine for multi-center data integration.  

PubMed

Clinical studies often use data dictionaries with controlled sets of terms to facilitate data collection, limited interoperability and sharing at a local site. Multi-center retrospective clinical studies require that these data dictionaries, originating from individual participating centers, be harmonized in preparation for the integration of the corresponding clinical research data. Domain ontologies are often used to facilitate multi-center data integration by modeling terms from data dictionaries in a logic-based language, but interoperability among domain ontologies (using automated techniques) is an unresolved issue. Although many upper-level reference ontologies have been proposed to address this challenge, our experience in integrating multi-center sleep medicine data highlights the need for an upper level ontology that models a common set of terms at multiple-levels of abstraction, which is not covered by the existing upper-level ontologies. We introduce a methodology underpinned by a Minimal Domain of Discourse (MiDas) algorithm to automatically extract a minimal common domain of discourse (upper-domain ontology) from an existing domain ontology. Using the Multi-Modality, Multi-Resource Environment for Physiological and Clinical Research (Physio-MIMI) multi-center project in sleep medicine as a use case, we demonstrate the use of MiDas in extracting a minimal domain of discourse for sleep medicine, from Physio-MIMI's Sleep Domain Ontology (SDO). We then extend the resulting domain of discourse with terms from the data dictionary of the Sleep Heart and Health Study (SHHS) to validate MiDas. To illustrate the wider applicability of MiDas, we automatically extract the respective domains of discourse from 6 sample domain ontologies from the National Center for Biomedical Ontologies (NCBO) and the OBO Foundry.

Periodontal therapy in chronic periodontitis lowers gingival crevicular fluid interleukin-1beta and DAS28 in rheumatoid arthritis patients.  

PubMed

To evaluate clinical outcomes and effects of non-surgical periodontal therapy on serum, gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) interleukin-1beta (IL-1?) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-?) levels in chronic periodontitis patients with/without rheumatoid arthritis (RA), fifteen RA patients with chronic periodontitis (RA-P) and 15 systemically healthy non-RA chronic periodontitis patients (H-P) were recruited. Clinical periodontal recordings, GCF, and blood samples were obtained at baseline, 1, 3, and 6 months after periodontal treatment. GCF, serum IL-1?, TNF-? levels were analyzed by ELISA. Disease activity score 28 (DAS28) was used to assess RA clinical morbidity. Study groups were compared by Mann-Whitney U test. Wilcoxon test was used to compare the data at baseline, 1, 3, and 6 months after periodontal therapy within the same group. DAS28 decreased significantly after periodontal therapy in RA-P group (p < 0.01). Serum TNF-? concentrations of H-P group were significantly higher than those of RA-P group (p < 0.01), whereas IL-1? levels were similar. No significant change was observed in serum levels of these cytokines after periodontal therapy. GCF IL-1? amounts decreased significantly in both groups following treatment (p < 0.01). At 6-months, H-P GCF IL-1? concentrations were significantly lower than baseline. DAS28 and GCF IL-1? correlated with clinical periodontal indices (p < 0.01). Significant decreases in DAS28 and GCF IL-1? amounts after periodontal treatment suggest that periodontal therapy synergizes with systemic RA therapy to improve RA status. PMID:23728274

Finite-size effects on the growth models of Das Sarma and Tamborenea and Wolf and Villain  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The original versions of the limited-mobility growth models of Das Sarma and Tamborenea (DT) and of Wolf and Villain (WV) were simulated in one-dimensional substrates of lengths /L<=256 and /<=512, respectively. The growth regime may be separated in two regions, giving effective growth exponents ?L. Finite-size estimates of the roughness exponent, ?L, and of the dynamical exponents, zL, are obtained from data in the steady states. The behavior of the effective exponents rules out the description by the fourth-order linear theory of interface growth in the continuum limit. For the DT model, ?L shows a crossover to ?~1/3 and extrapolations of ?L considering finite-size corrections with the local roughness exponent give /?~1, both consistent with the fourth-order nonlinear theory, while zL shows a slower crossover. For the WV model, extrapolations of ?L and zL are consistent with the values of the Edwards-Wilkinson theory, /?=0.5 and /z=2. These results improve previous ones for the original DT and WV models, from which we conclude that, considering certain systematic data extrapolation methods, the theoretically predicted universality classes can be inferred without using noise reduction schemes.

Using a multi-user desktop-based virtual reality system to recreate the São Miguel das Missões ruins.  

PubMed

This paper presents a project initiated back in 1999, in which Virtual Reality is applied in order to create a virtual community over the Internet. The desktop-based multi-user virtual reality system recreates a three-dimensional environment based on photogrammetric maps from the São Miguel das Missões church ruins. The ruins correspond to one of the Jesuit Mission (settlement) which was active in the south of Brazil in the 17th and 18th centuries. It has a great importance to the local region in terms of cultural, historic, and tourist aspects. It has also been inscribed in the UNESCO's world heritage list since 1983. This electronic mock-up allows several interactive operations such as community chats, electronic message exchanging, message boards, walking-through, discussion groups, and embedding of other media such as movies, sound, and html pages. The only requirement necessary to access the community is a web browser powered with any Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) plug-in freely available over the Internet. It is expected that such a solution improves the conservation and dissemination of the Brazilian historic patrimony, congregating history, art, and tourist information in one place on the Internet.

The Relationship Between Function and Disease Activity as Measured by the HAQ and DAS28 Varies Over Time and by Rheumatoid Factor Status in Early Inflammatory Arthritis (EIA). Results from the CATCH Cohort§  

PubMed Central

Objective: To investigate the relationship between function and disease activity in early inflammatory arthritis (EIA). Methods: Canadian Early Arthritis Cohort (CATCH) (n=1143) is a multi-site EIA cohort. Correlations between the Health Assessment Questionnaire Disability Index (HAQ) and DAS28 were done at every 3 months for the first year and then at 18 and 24 months. We also investigated the relationship between HAQ and DAS28 by age (<65 versus ?65) and RF (positive vs negative). Results: Mean HAQ and DAS28 scores were highest at the initial visit with HAQ decreasing over 24 months from a baseline of 0.94 to 0.40 and DAS28 scores decreasing from 4.54 to 2.29. All correlations between HAQ and DAS28 were significant at all time points (p<0.01). The correlations between HAQ and DAS28 were variable over time. The strongest correlation between HAQ and DAS28 occurred at initial visit (most DMARD naive) (n=1,143) and 18 months (r=0.57, n=321) and 24 months (r=0.59, n=214). The baseline correlation between HAQ and DAS28 was significantly different than correlations obtained at 3, 6, and 12 months (p=0.02, 0.01, and 0.01, respectively). Age did not change the association between HAQ and DAS28 {<65 years old (r=0.50, n=868) versus ?65 (r=0.48, n=254), p=0.49}. The correlation between HAQ and DAS28 was stronger with RF+ patients (r=0.63, n=636) vs RF negative (r=0.47, n=477), p=0.0043 Conclusion: Over 2 years in EIA, HAQ and DAS both improved; correlations at time points were different over 2 years and RF status affected the correlations.

Rotação do jato em DG tau próximo à região de sua formação: análise comparativa das velocidades radiais simuladas e observadas  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Os modelos magneto-centrífugos utilizados para explicar a formação dos jatos Herbig-Haro assumem a presença de um disco de acresção em rotação kepleriana na base de lançamento do jato. Neste cenário, o jato transmite a informação da rotação do disco para regiões distantes da fonte central, além da superfície de Alfvén, na região de colimação inicial do jato. Recentemente, Bacciotti et al. (2002, ApJ, 537, L49) obtiveram pela primeira vez uma evidência observacional de rotação em um jato HH, o jato em DG Tau, em regiões próximas da fonte central, compatível (qualitativa e quantitativamente) com o esperado a partir dos modelos magneto-centrífugos para a produção e colimação inicial de jatos HH. No presente trabalho, apresentamos mapas de velocidade radial, obtidos através de simulações numéricas tri-dimensionais SPH, para um jato com características semelhantes ao jato em DG Tau, objetivando uma comparação com os mapas de velocidade radiais obtidos por Bacciotti et al.. Nossos resultados, embora preliminares, indicam que a inclusão de efeitos como a precessão, evidenciada em DG Tau (Dougados et al. 2000, A&A, 357, L61) devem ser levadas em consideração na análise da presença de rotação não só em DG Tau mas em qualquer sistema, com o uso das velocidades radias observadas. A ausência de um grau elevado de simetria axial (quebrada, por exemplo, pela precessão do eixo do jato; ou pela presença de uma superfície interna de trabalho, ou seja, um bow shock interno), implica também em uma maior complexidade nos mapas, com conseqüências relevantes para suas interpretações.

The Microbial Database for Danish wastewater treatment plants with nutrient removal (MiDas-DK) - a tool for understanding activated sludge population dynamics and community stability.  

PubMed

Since 2006 more than 50 Danish full-scale wastewater treatment plants with nutrient removal have been investigated in a project called 'The Microbial Database for Danish Activated Sludge Wastewater Treatment Plants with Nutrient Removal (MiDas-DK)'. Comprehensive sets of samples have been collected, analyzed and associated with extensive operational data from the plants. The community composition was analyzed by quantitative fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) supported by 16S rRNA amplicon sequencing and deep metagenomics. MiDas-DK has been a powerful tool to study the complex activated sludge ecosystems, and, besides many scientific articles on fundamental issues on mixed communities encompassing nitrifiers, denitrifiers, bacteria involved in P-removal, hydrolysis, fermentation, and foaming, the project has provided results that can be used to optimize the operation of full-scale plants and carry out trouble-shooting. A core microbial community has been defined comprising the majority of microorganisms present in the plants. Time series have been established, providing an overview of temporal variations in the different plants. Interestingly, although most microorganisms were present in all plants, there seemed to be plant-specific factors that controlled the population composition thereby keeping it unique in each plant over time. Statistical analyses of FISH and operational data revealed some correlations, but less than expected. MiDas-DK (www.midasdk.dk) will continue over the next years and we hope the approach can inspire others to make similar projects in other parts of the world to get a more comprehensive understanding of microbial communities in wastewater engineering.

PubMed

We investigated the effects of UFT and its metabolites, GHB and GBL, on angiogenesis induced by tumor cells in a dorsal air sac (DAS) assay in mice. Five tumor cell lines (murine renal carcinoma; RENCA, human gastric cancer; 4-1ST, human small-cell lung carcinoma; LX-1, and human colon carcinoma; DLD-1, KM-20C) were used in the DAS assay. In this model, UFT demonstrated a significant anti-angiogenic activity in a dose-dependent manner while 5-FU (19 mg/kg/day) and 5'-DFUR (200 mg/kg/day) were less effective. Moreover, tegafur (FT), a component of UFT, and gamma-hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and gamma-butyrolactone (GBL), in vivo metabolites of UFT, inhibited angiogenesis induced by RENCA cells. The inhibitory effects of 5-FU, GHB, and GBL on angiogenesis were increased with administration by continuous infusion, providing a suitable pharmacokinetic profile. These results suggest that GHB and GBL are involved in the expression of anti-angiogenic activity of UFT. PMID:10660738

The geology of the Morro Velho gold deposit in the Archean Rio das Velhas greenstone belt, Quadrila??tero Ferri??fero, Brazil  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The Morro Velho gold deposit, Quadrila??tero Ferri??fero region, Minas Gerais, Brazil, is hosted by rocks at the base of the Archean Rio das Velhas greenstone belt. The deposit occurs within a thick carbonaceous phyllite package, containing intercalations of felsic and intermediate volcaniclastic rocks and dolomites. Considering the temporal and spatial association of the deposit with the Rio das Velhas orogeny, and location in close proximity to a major NNW-trending fault zone, it can be classified as an orogenic gold deposit. Hydrothermal activity was characterized by intense enrichment in alteration zones of carbonates, sulfides, chlorite, white mica??biotite, albite and quartz, as described in other Archean lode-type gold ores. Two types of ore occur in the deposit: dark gray quartz veins and sulfide-rich gold orebodies. The sulfide-rich orebodies range from disseminated concentrations of sulfide minerals to massive sulfide bodies. The sulfide assemblage comprises (by volume), on average, 74% pyrrhotite, 17% arsenopyrite, 8% pyrite and 1% chalcopyrite. The orebodies have a long axis parallel to the local stretching lineation, with continuity down the plunge of fold axis for at least 4.8??km. The group of rocks hosting the Morro Velho gold mineralization is locally referred to as lapa seca. These were isoclinally folded and metamorphosed prior to gold mineralization. The lapa seca and the orebodies it hosts are distributed in five main tight folds related to F1 (the best examples are the X, Main and South orebodies, in level 25), which are disrupted by NE- to E-striking shear zones. Textural features indicate that the sulfide mineralization postdated regional peak metamorphism, and that the massive sulfide ore has subsequently been neither metamorphosed nor deformed. Lead isotope ratios indicate a model age of 2.82 ?? 0.05??Ga for both sulfide and gold mineralization. The lapa seca are interpreted as the results of a pre-gold alteration process and may be divided into carbonatic, micaceous and quartzose types. The carbonatic lapa seca is subdivided into gray and brown subtypes. Non-mineralized, gray carbonatic lapa seca forms the hanging wall to the orebodies, and is interpreted as the product of extreme CO2 metasomatism during hydrothermal alteration. This dolomitic lapa seca ranges in composition from relatively pure limestone and dolomite to silty limestone and dolomite. The brown carbonatic and micaceous lapa secas are the host rocks to gold. These units are interpreted to correspond to the sheared and hydrothermal products of metamorphosed volcaniclastic and/or volcanic rocks of varying composition from dacitic to andesitic, forming various types of schists and phyllites. The high-grade, massive sulfide orebodies occur at the base of the gray carbonatic lapa seca. Both disseminated mineralization and quartz veins are hosted by micaceous lapa seca. The data are consistent with a model of epigenetic mineralization for the lapa seca, from a hydrothermal fluid derived in part from the Archean basement or older crust material. ?? 2007 Elsevier B.V.

Comment on "Cosmogenic neon in grains separated from individual chondrules: Evidence of precompaction exposure in chondrules" by J. P. Das, J. N. Goswami, O. V. Pravdivtseva, A. P. Meshik, and C. M. Hohenberg  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Das et al. (2012) claim that in several cases nominal cosmic ray exposure ages derived from concentrations of cosmogenic Ne in individual olivine grains separated from chondrules substantially exceed exposure ages of matrix samples. Some grains were also reported to show larger apparent exposure ages than other grains from the same chondrule. The authors conclude that the excesses were caused by an exposure of chondrules to high fluences of solar energetic particles and suggest that their data provide direct evidence for a highly active phase of the early Sun, similar to what is observed in X-ray emissions of recent naked T-Tauri stars. Here, we show that the production rates of cosmogenic Ne used by Das et al. (2012) to derive nominal cosmic ray exposure ages of their olivine grains are often much too low, as the reported major element concentrations in many cases sum up to considerably less than 100% even if converted to oxides. In contrast, adopted element concentrations for matrix samples are basically self-consistent. A precompaction exposure of chondrules to a very high flux of solar energetic particles is thus not supported by the data presented by Das et al. (2012). Das et al.

Epidemiology of Human Infection with the Novel Virus Influenza A (H1H1) in the Hospital das Cl?nicas, S?o Paulo, Brazil - June-September 2009  

PubMed Central

The pandemic novel influenza A (H1N1) infection was considered widespread in Brazil on July 16, 2009. Since then, 46,810 cases of acute respiratory syndrome have been reported in Brazil, most of them concentrated in São Paulo. Through September 16, we have confirmed 9,249 cases of novel influenza A H1N1in Brazil, including 699 deaths. The mortality rate observed in Brazil is 0.47/100,000 inhabitants and varies according to region. In this period, São Paulo registered 3733 cases (40.3% of the total) of novel influenza A (H1N1) infection and 327 deaths, reflecting a mortality rate of 0.79/100,000 inhabitants. The Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (HC) is a reference center for H1N1 cases in São Paulo. During the winter of 2009, 472 patients in this hospital were diagnosed with H1N1 infection; of these, 210 were admitted, and 16 died. To control this pandemic and to provide adequate care for these patients, the Hospital das Clínicas implemented “bundles” including prevention strategies, an epidemiologic surveillance service, availability of fast diagnosis, antiviral treatment and training of staff. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe the epidemiologic features of novel human influenza A (H1N1) infection in the Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo during the winter period of the 2009 pandemic.

Adrogolide HCl (ABT-431; DAS-431), a prodrug of the dopamine D1 receptor agonist, A-86929: preclinical pharmacology and clinical data.  

PubMed

Adrogolide (ABT-431; DAS-431) is a chemically stable prodrug that is converted rapidly (<1 min) in plasma to A-86929, a full agonist at dopamine D1 receptors. In in vitro functional assays, A-86929 is over 400 times more selective for dopamine D1 than D2 receptors. In rats with a unilateral loss of striatal dopamine, A-86929 produces contralateral rotations that are inhibited by dopamine D1 but not by dopamine D2 receptor antagonists. Adrogolide improves behavioral disability and locomotor activity scores in MPTP-lesioned marmosets, a model of Parkinson's disease (PD), and shows no tolerance upon repeated dosing for 28 days. In PD patients, intravenous (i.v.) adrogolide has antiparkinson efficacy equivalent to that of L-DOPA with a tendency towards a reduced liability to induce dyskinesia. The adverse events associated with its use were of mild-to-moderate severity and included injection site reaction, asthenia, headache, nausea, vomiting, postural hypotension, vasodilitation, and dizziness. Adrogolide can also attenuate the ability of cocaine to induce cocaine-seeking behavior and does not itself induce cocaine-seeking behavior in a rodent model of cocaine craving and relapse. In human cocaine abusers, i.v. adrogolide reduces cocaine craving and other cocaine-induced subjective effects. The results of animal abuse liability studies indicate that adrogolide is unlikely to have abuse potential in man. Adrogolide has also been reported to reverse haloperidol-induced cognitive deficits in monkeys, suggesting that it may be an effective treatment for the cognitive dysfunction associated with aging and disease. Adrogolide undergoes a high hepatic "first-pass" metabolism in man after oral dosing and, as a result, has a low oral bioavailability (approximately 4%). This limitation may potentially be circumvented by oral inhalation formulations for intrapulmonary delivery that greatly increase the bioavailability of adrogolide. As the first full dopamine D1 receptor agonist to show efficacy in PD patients and to reduce the craving and subjective effects of cocaine in cocaine abusers, adrogolide represents an important tool in understanding the pharmacotherapeutic potential of dopamine D1 receptor agonists.

Membrane-associated DNase activity controlled by genes 46 and 47 of bacteriophage T4D and elevated DNase activity associated with the T4 DAS mutation  

SciTech Connect

Lethal, amber mutations in T4 genes 46 and 47 cause incomplete degradation of host DNA, premature arrest of phage DNA synthesis, accumulation of abnormal DNA replication intermediates, and defective recombination. These phenotypes can be explained by the hypothesis that genes 46 and 47 control a DNA exonuclease, but in vitro demonstration of such a nuclease has not yet been reported. Membrane and supernatant fractions from 46/sup -/ and 47/sup -/ mutant-infected and 46/sup +/ 47/sup +/ control-infected cells were assayed for the presence of the protein products of these genes (i.e., gp46 and gp47) and for the ability to degrade various DNA substrates to acid-soluble products in vitro. The two proteins were found only on membranes. The membrane fraction from 46/sup -/ 47/sup -/ mutant-infected cells digested native or heavily nicked Escherichia coli DNA to acid-soluble products three to four times slower than the membrane fraction from control-infected cells. No such effect was found in the cytoplasmic fractions. The effect on nuclease activity in membranes was the same whether 47/sup -/ and 47/sup -/ mutants were present singly or together. NaClO/sub 4/, a chaotropic agent, released both gp46 and gp47 from 46/sup +/ 47/sup +/ membranes, as well as the DNase activity controlled by genes 46 and 47. DNA cellulose chromatography of proteins released from membranes by NaClO/sub 4/ showed that gp46 and gp47 bound to the native DNAs of both E. coli and T4. Thus, the overall enrichment of gp46 and gp47 relative to total T4 protein was 600-fold (10-fold in membranes, 2-fold more upon release from membranes by NaClO/sub 4/, and 30-fold more upon elution from DNA cellulose). T4 das mutations, which partially suppress the defective phenotype of 46/sup -/ and 47/sup -/ mutants, caused a considerable increase in in vitro DNase activity in both membrane and cytoplasmic fractions.

Test-retest reliability of the Disease Activity Score 28 CRP (DAS28-CRP), the Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) and the Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) in rheumatoid arthritis when based on patient self-assessment of tender and swollen joints.  

PubMed

Composite disease activity scores are frequently used in daily practice as tools for treatment decisions in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). If reliable, patient-reported disease activity may be time saving in the busy clinic. The objective was to examine the test-retest reliability of the Disease Activity Score 28 CRP (DAS28-CRP) with four variables (4v) and three variables (3v), the Simplified Disease Activity Index (SDAI) and the Clinical Disease Activity Index (CDAI) when based on patient self-assessment of tender and swollen joints and to examine the agreement between these scores and physician-derived scores. Thirty out-clinic RA patients with stable disease were included. A joint count was performed two times 1 week apart by the patient and by an experienced physician. Test-retest reliability was expressed as the least significant difference (LSD), as the LSD in percent of the mean score (%LSD) and as intra-individual coefficients of variation (CVi). Mean scores based on physician vs. patient joint counts (visit 1) were: DAS28-CRP(4v) 3.5?±?1.0 vs. 3.6?±?1.1 (not significant (NS)), DAS28-CRP(3v) 3.4?±?0.9 vs. 3.5?±?0.9 (NS), SDAI 14.2?±?9.4 vs.14.1?±?9.4 (NS) and CDAI 13.4?±?9.3 vs. 13.3?±?9.4 (NS). The LSDs (%LSD) for duplicate assessments of patient-derived scores (visit 2 vs. 1) were: DAS28-CRP(4v) 0.8 (23.2), DAS28-CRP(3v) 0.9 (25.2), SDAI 8.3 (59.9) and CDAI 8.4 (63.8). Similar LSDs were found for differences between duplicate assessments of physician-derived scores and for differences between physician and patient-derived scores. CVis for SDAI and CDAI were significantly higher than for DAS28-CRP(4v) and DAS28-CRP(3v) (p?

Acute and repeated dose (28 day) mouse oral toxicology studies with Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 Bt proteins used in coleopteran resistant DAS-59122-7 corn.  

PubMed

Expression of the Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 proteins from Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Berliner strain PS149B1 in genetically modified maize (event DAS-59122-7) protects the crop from damage due to feeding by Diabrotica larvae including the western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera). As part of the safety assessment of this maize, mammalian toxicology studies were conducted with heterologously produced Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 proteins. No evidence of acute toxicity was observed in mice following oral exposure to either the Cry34Ab1 or Cry35Ab1 proteins individually (2700 and 1850 mg/kg, respectively) or concomitantly (482 and 1520 mg/kg, respectively; 1:1 molar ratio). Similarly, no adverse effects were observed in mice in a repeated dose (28 day) dietary toxicity study that incorporated these proteins into diets at concentrations corresponding up to 1000-fold greater than the highest estimate of human exposure based on the concentrations of these proteins expressed in 59122 maize grain. These studies demonstrate that the Cry34Ab1 and Cry35Ab1 proteins do not represent a risk to human health and support previous studies indicating that 59122 maize grain is as safe and wholesome as non-GM maize grain.

Composition of grain and forage from insect-protected and herbicide-tolerant corn, MON 89034 × TC1507 × MON 88017 × DAS-59122-7 (SmartStax), is equivalent to that of conventional corn (Zea mays L.).  

PubMed

Monsanto Company and Dow AgroSciences LLC have developed the combined-trait corn product MON 89034 × TC1507 × MON 88017 × DAS-59122-7 (SmartStax, a registered trademark of Monsanto Technology LLC). The combination of four biotechnology-derived events into a single corn product (stacking) through conventional breeding provides broad protection against lepidopteran and corn rootworm insect pests as well as tolerance to the glyphosate and glufosinate-ammonium herbicide families. The purpose of the work described here was to assess whether the nutrient, antinutrient, and secondary metabolite levels in grain and forage tissues of the combined-trait product are comparable to those in conventional corn. Compositional analyses were conducted on grain and forage from SmartStax, a near-isogenic conventional corn hybrid (XE6001), and 14 conventional reference hybrids, grown at multiple locations across the United States. No statistically significant differences between SmartStax and conventional corn were observed for the 8 components analyzed in forage and for 46 of the 52 components analyzed in grain. The six significant differences observed in grain components (p < 0.05) were assessed in context of the natural variability for that component. These results demonstrate that the stacked product, SmartStax, produced through conventional breeding of four single-event products containing eight proteins, is compositionally equivalent to conventional corn, as previously demonstrated for the single-event products.

Internationale Schulreformtendenzen und das Problem der Lehrerausbildung  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The main theme of this article is that the socio-economic and educational changes which have occurred in industrialized countries in the past 20 to 25 years necessitate a thorough reform of the present system of teacher education. The first group of such changes includes the information explosion, greater occupational mobility, the growing significance and increasing role of the sciences, the development of the mass media, higher educational aspirations, technical development, the acceleration of the psycho-physical development of children and youth, and the injurious effects of the uncontrolled development of the constantly changing civilisation (deterioration of the human environment, diseases caused by the effects of civilisation, etc.). In the face of these changes, teachers must not remain indifferent and teacher education systems have to take them into account. Within the second group of changes influencing the content and methods of teacher education, the most important is the generalisation of education at the pre-school, primary and secondary school levels and also at the university level. As a result, education in many types of school and at ever higher levels has lost the elitist character it still had, not so long ago, and has become a mass activity. This has considerably affected teachers' work and, necessarily, also the work of the teacher education systems. In present-day schools it is necessary to emphasize not only the transmission of knowledge of the `know that' type, as was done in the past, but also problem-solving, independent individual and group work, etc., which will enable children and young people to acquire `know-how' and `know-why'. This must also be reflected in teacher education. In order to adapt the teacher education systems to the requirements of the changing society, a reform of the goals, contents and methods of the system will have to be prepared and implemented as a prerequisite and starting point for a global reform of the entire education system.

Excising das All: Evolving Maxwell waves beyond scri  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study the numerical propagation of waves through future null infinity in a conformally compactified spacetime. We introduce an artificial cosmological constant, which allows us some control over the causal structure near null infinity. We exploit this freedom to ensure that all light cones are tilted outward in a region near null infinity, which allows us to impose excision-style boundary conditions in our finite-difference code. In this preliminary study we consider electromagnetic waves propagating in a static, conformally compactified spacetime.

Erfolgsfaktoren von Lehrstellenmarketing in der dualen berufsbildung: das beispiel Schweiz  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

SUCCESS FACTORS OF APPRENTICESHIP MARKETING IN A SYSTEM OF DUAL VOCATIONAL TRAINING: THE CASE OF SWITZERLAND - The dual system of vocational training, utilizing both company training and vocational school, is generally acknowledged to be a successful model, but a decreasing number of trainee posts in Switzerland poses a crisis for the approach. One strategy for overcoming the problem involves offering incentives for companies to create new trainee posts. The present study explores the necessary conditions for successfully influencing the number of trainee posts through apprenticeship marketing. A comparision of qualitative case studies of six marketing projects demonstrates that while context, in the sense of basic structural conditions and political sensibility for the problematic, plays a role in the success of a project, what is central is above all the form of the trainee-post marketing project itself. This has to do with the behaviour of the actors involved as well as the choice of the mode of governance and project organization. The latter has to do with making available requisite technical and personal resources, coordination on the part of the project direction, and giving those responsible the necessary room to act in implementing the project.

Die Casimir-Kraft zwischen zwei Spiegeln im Vakuum wird durch Vakuumfluktuationen verursacht.

Eine Vielzahl neuer Experimente setzt dazu moderne Techniken wie die atomare Kraftmikroskopie oder mikroelektromechanische Systeme ein. Auch die theoretischen Modelle werden verbessert, um diese Experimente realistischer nachzubilden. Bislang stimmen die experimentellen Daten gut mit den theoretischen Vorhersagen überein. Da der Casimir-Effekt auf kurzen Distanzen dominieren kann, wird er für die zukünftige Nanotechnik wichtig sein. Der Grundlagenforschung bietet er eine gute Möglichkeit, neue Theorien zur Vereinigung aller Kräfte zu überprüfen.

Diskrepanzen und Kongruenzen: Das Dilemma des afrikanischen Kindes zwischen Familie und Schule  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This article expounds the theory that the failure of school is due to the incompatibility of the educational goals of school and traditional upbringing in Africa. The thesis is put forward by adherents of the psychoanalytical model of child development and seeks to emphasize the discrepancies between the childhood where children are not frustrated and where their needs are cared for and the school education which represses the drives and its socialization of children. Finding a number of anthropological studies are discussed and reinterpretations of the ethno-psychoanalytical materials attempted. Neither the evaluation of childhood in Africa nor the theory that with school come wholly new expectations of behaviour (e.g., a performance requirement) can no longer be maintained. In conclusion, other explanations for the difficulties encountered by school in Africa are offered.

Fehler begehen - Mathematik verstehen Über die Bedeutung von Fehlern für das Verstehen  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Auch wenn eine historisch oder systematisch umfassende Darstellung zur Fehlerthematik bislang nicht vorliegt, ist die Idee, einer Fehleranalyse unter der Leitfrage, welche Fehler von Schülerinnen und Schülern aufgrund welcher epistemologischen Überzeugungen begangen werden, zentralen Raum für die Betrachtung von Verstehensprozessen einzuräumen, nicht neu. So ist es geradezu ein Charakteristikum einer modernen konstruktivistischen Didaktik, die eigenen Fehler von Lernenden als ihre individuellen Lerngelegenheiten zu begreifen, die einen wichtigen Motor für den subjektiven Lernfortschritt bilden. Diese Sichtweise wurzelt aus psychologischer Perspektive in Analysen in der Tradition Piagets, der in Abkehr von einer quantitativen, psychometrischen Beschreibung kognitiver Prozesse, wie sie sich zum Beispiel in Intelligenztheorien nach Binet findet, qualitativ zu beschreiben versuchte, in welcher Weise Kinder und Jugendliche denken und urteilen. Doch auch schon in der klassischen Philosophie sind entsprechende Ansätze zu finden. Prominente Beispiele hierfür sind die Idolenlehre Bacons und die Ideenlehre Platons.

[Hospitalizations at Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto, USP, 1996-2003].  

PubMed

Hospitalizations represent an important share of healthcare, due to both the complexity of actions and the financial volume applied. This descriptive-exploratory investigation had the purpose to identify and describing the physical and financial production of hospitalizations performed in a school hospital in the state of São Paulo, from 1996 to 2003, focusing the specialties of surgical clinic, medical clinic, pediatrics and obstetrics. Data collection was performed by searching the official databanks of the studied institution. In that period, a global 8.5% reduction in the frequency of admittances and a 78.4% increase in the financial resources were observed. Surgical clinic, with more expensive procedures, increased its admittances; the production in obstetrics showed the lowest variation. The increasing incorporation of technology, the demands from regional users and the migration of users from the supplementary system to the SUS may justify the variation of production in the different specialties.

Kepler, Galilei, the telescope and the consequences. (German Title: Kepler, Galilei, das Fernrohr und die Folgen)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the beginning Copernicus' system of the world did not have empirical confirmation. In this situation, Kepler's research, as well as the astronomical observations with the telescope, invented in 1608, played a decisive role. Under the assumption of the central position of the Sun, Kepler discovered the elliptical orbital motion of the planets as a base of the computation of noticeably improved ephemerides. The first telescopic observations - Jupiter's moons, phases of Venus, sunspots, surface features of the moon -, gave important arguments for Copernicus' system. Galilei was one of the first who used the telescope for astronomical research.

By two exemplary clinical situations — acute viral hepatitis, acute-phase reaction of the liver — the significance of basic research for the understanding of clinical phenomena and for the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is demonstrated. The very different phenomena following infection with the hepatitis-B-virus can be explained by the variation in the interactions of virus and liver cell, by the immune reaction of the host, and by mutants of the virus. The reaction of the liver to an extrahepatic infection is mediated by interleukin-6, and characterized by an alteration in protein metabolism. The synthesis of acute-phase proteins is increased. The proteins confine the local injury and establish the homeostasis of the organism.

Folgen des Globalen Wandels für das Grundwasser in Süddeutschland - Teil 1: Naturräumliche Aspekte  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In order to account for complex interactions between humans climate and the water cycle, the research consortium GLOWA-Danube (www.glowa-danube.de) has developed the simulation system DANUBIA which consists of 17 coupled models. DANUBIA was applied to investigate various impacts of global-change between 2011 and 2060 in the Upper Danube Catchment. This article represents part 1 of an article series and describes groundwater and natural aspects of the investigations, while part 2 describes socio-economic aspects (Barthel et al. in Grundwaser 16(4), doi:10.1007/s00767-011-0180-y, 2011). Here we describe concepts of GLOWA-Danube and DANUBIA as well as groundwater-related model components. This leads to selected simulation results for water balance, groundwater quantity and quality. The chosen scenarios show decreasing precipitation, increasing temperatures, and changes in the annual distribution that lead to significant decreases in groundwater recharge. Regional predictions of groundwater quality were difficult to achieve because of complex soil and groundwater processes. However, climatic change will probably have little impact.

Despite decreases in water consumption, the scenario simulations show significant decreases in groundwater quantity. On the other hand, groundwater quality will likely be influenced more severely by land use changes compared to direct climatic causes. However, overall changes will not be dramatic.

Silicon Isotopic Measurements in Desolvated Samples by MC-ICP-MS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Silicon, the most ubiquitous rock-forming element presents also a key role in biological processes. In particular, its biogeochemical cycle constitutes one of the most challenging issues in recent years due to its close relationship with the carbon cycle in marine environments (Tréguer et al., 1995; Ragueneau et al., 2000). The most recent silicon isotopic investigations on various natural samples have highlighted the great potential of this (palaeo)-proxy for oceanographers (De La Rocha et al., 1997, 1998). Better understanding the silicon isotope fractionation due to various biogeochemical processes can be achieved by facilitating its measurements through MC-ICPMS technique (De La Rocha et al., 2002; Alleman et al., 2002). In this regard we have developed an original method to analyze silicon isotopes under dry plasma conditions. We demonstrate that coupling a Nu Plasma MC-ICP-MS with a Cetac Aridus desolvator allows the rapid acquisition of natural silicon isotope abundances with high sensitivity and accuracy. To adequately correct for the mass fractionation occurring at the interface between the plasma source and the mass spectrometer line, we combine external normalization using Mg as a dopant with standard-sample bracketing using NBS-28 as the reference. With the desolvating nebulization system, the measurement of 28Si and 29Si isotopes is not hampered by significant interferences. ?29Si values are obtained with an accuracy and repeatability better than 0.1 \\permil. The accuracy has been successfully calibrated against the laser fluorination line technique (De La Rocha et al., 1996; Alleman et al., 2002). We could demonstrate that the isotopic fractionation that might occur in the plasma or the desolvator was adequately corrected by combining Mg isotopes and the sample-standard bracketing procedure. Moreover, the preservation of the Si isotopic signatures of the samples is validated by the different chemical sample treatments required by these two techniques. This method presents clear advantages compared to the wet plasma technique described by De La Rocha et al. (2002), also using a Nu Plasma MC-ICP-MS, as being much more sensitive and less time consuming. We report here single ?29Si data obtained within one hour and requiring less than 3?g Si per sample. Preliminary results over a large range of natural samples including diatomite, large diatoms, sponge spicules, phytoliths and water from lakes and seawater will also be presented and briefly discussed.

Bosea eneae sp. nov., Bosea massiliensis sp. nov. and Bosea vestrisii sp. nov., isolated from hospital water supplies, and emendation of the genus Bosea (Das et al. 1996).  

PubMed

On the basis of phenotypic and DNA relatedness data, three novel species of the genus Bosea are proposed, Bosea massiliensis (63287T =CIP 106336T =CCUG 43117T), Bosea vestrisii (34635T =CIP 106340T =CCUG 43114T) and Bosea eneae (34614T =CIP 106338T =CCUG 43111T). The original description of the genus Bosea included thiosulphate oxidation as a phenotypic feature, when the sole and type species of the genus, Bosea thiooxidans, was proposed. The three novel species described herein were not able to oxidize thiosulphate; thus, it is proposed that this characteristic be removed from the description of the genus and considered as specific for B. thiooxidans. The novel species of the genus Bosea proposed here form a well-separated cluster in the Bradyrhizobium group of the alpha-2 subclass of the Proteobacteria, on the basis of 16S rDNA gene sequence analysis. However, 16S rDNA gene sequence analysis was not sufficient to delineate the species; hence, DNA-DNA relatedness and phenotypic data were also required. All of the novel species described in this study are fastidious bacteria isolated from a hospital water supply, using co-cultivation with amoebae. This group of bacteria are hypothesized to be a potential cause of nosocomial infections. For treatment of infections caused by these novel bacteria, doxycycline appears to be the sole antibacterial compound with a consistently low MIC value. PMID:12656146

Geothermische Verhältnisse südlich des Kaiserstuhls. Das Hartheimer Becken im südlichen Oberrheingraben Geothermal conditions south of the Kaiserstuhl  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The District Authority (Regierungspräsidium) Freiburg interpreted reflective seismic data for the region of Hartheim south of the Kaiserstuhl (Upper Rhine Graben). The seismic data were used to determine the position of the inner fault zone of the Upper Rhine Graben in this area, combined with parameters of depth and thickness for the most important hydrogeothermal reservoirs of the Hauptrogenstein (Middle Jura), Oberer Muschelkalk and Buntsandstein. The inner fault zone shows an offset of up to 3 000 m, that separates the deep subsided inner zone of the Upper Rhine Graben (basin of Hartheim) in the west from the shallower parts in the east (Tuniberg, Freiburger Bucht). In the subsided inner zone of the Upper Rhine Graben temperatures of 130 °C at a depth of 3 000 m or 150 °C in a depth of 3 500 m can be expected. Estimated hydraulic conductivities for the aquifers of the Hauptrogenstein and Oberer Muschelkalk average at T/ H=2?10-6 m2/s with significant standard deviations. The Buntsandstein delivered only a few values. The deep seated waters in the inner zone of the Upper Rhine Graben are dominated by natrium and chloride, showing total dissolved solids (TDS) of several 10s g/l. Waters with the highest value for TDS can be found in the Hauptrogenstein aquifer.

Cysticercosis of the central nervous system. I. Surgical treatment of cerebral cysticercosis: a 23 years experience in the Hospital das Clínicas of Ribeirão Preto Medical School.  

PubMed

Cysticercosis is the most frequent parasitosis of the nervous system and nowadays it is widespread through the world. Despite the development of anticysticercal drugs (praziquantel and albendazole), their efficacy is more marked in cases with parenchymal active cysts and they do not prevent complications such as hydrocephalus. Thus, many patients with neurocysticercosis require surgical intervention, generally of palliative nature, but that may occasionally produce a cure. The clinical outcome of 180 patients with cerebral cysticercosis who underwent surgical treatment form 1970 to 1993 was analyzed. Surgical treatment was performed to control increased ICP in 177 patients and due to local compression of cranial nerves or brainstem in five. Some patients had more than one surgical procedure, totalizing 287 interventions. Increased intracranial pressure (ICP) was caused by hydrocephalus in 91%, by intracranial mass lesion (tumoral form) in 6.2% and by pseudotumor cerebri (pseudotumoral form) in 2.8% of the case. Based on the pathophysiological mechanisms of intracranial hypertension identified through conventional CT-scan, ventriculography, cysternotomography, ventriculotomography and MRI, different surgical approaches were indicated. Patients with tumoral form were submitted to direct approach and cyst removal and generally they had benefits from this procedure. Patients with pseudotumoral form whose clinical treatment failure underwent decompressive craniectomies and had a poor outcome (40% of good results). Direct removal of ventricular/cisternal cysts and/or ventriculoatrial/peritoneal shunting (VA/VPS) was performed in patients with hydrocephalus. Removal of free ventricular cysts in patients who had no ependimitis/arachnoiditis generally allowed a good outcome. Patients with adherent cysts and inflammatory process needed a VA/VPS posteriorly and the outcome was not so good. One hundred thirty-two patients were submitted to VA/VPS (109 as the first procedure and 23 after another surgical treatment). The VA/VPS was effective to control increased ICP, despite many complications observed mainly during the two first postoperative years. After this period the surviving patients generally had a better outcome. The patients submitted to cyst removal due to local compression of cranial nerves/brainstem generally had good results. Based on the experience acquired with the management of these patients we present our recent policy for the treatment of patients with neurocisticercosis. PMID:7826245

A proposed framework for conducting pollution prevention design assessments (P2DAs) on U.S. Department of Energy design projects  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this manual is to provide a framework for project managers, engineers, and designers to integrate pollution prevention principles and features into DOE design projects. The framework suggested is referred to as the pollution prevention design assessment (P2DA). The P2DA is based on DOE`s method for conducting pollution prevention opportunity assessments (PPOAs) on existing waste-generating operations, but the P2DA is modified because the facility or process it assesses does not physically exist during design. Before the P2DA framework is introduced in the manual, recommendations for establishing the P2DA team and budget are provided. Specific pollution prevention requirements and opportunities for each design stage as delineated in DOE Order 4700.1 Project Management System are also discussed and a sample format for drafting a P2DA report is provided in the appendix. The scope of this manual includes not only the P2DA framework, but also a background discussion of pollution prevention and related topics; the regulatory requirements mandating design for pollution prevention; the benefits and barriers of designing for pollution prevention; and the impact that pollution prevention and related environmental avoidance concepts have had on the engineering profession.

Reply to `Comment on "Magnitude conversion problem using general orthogonal regression" by H. R. Wason, Ranjit Das and M. L. Sharma' by Paolo Gasperini and Barbara Lolli  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We completely reject the conclusions of P. Gasperini and Barbara Lolli made in the concluding remarks of their comments on the methodology and results of our paper (Wason et al. 2012). Based on reasoning and comparisons made between true values on the general orthogonal regression (GOR) line and the estimates of the variable given by the two procedures, we would like to reiterate that the proposed methodology is sound and provides improved estimates of the true points lying on the GOR line compared to the commonly used procedure for magnitude conversion. Hence, the use of the proposed method based on GOR in Wason et al. (2012) is suggested for magnitude conversion of data sets having error variance ratio of magnitudes (?) less than or equal to 2.5. However, for ? > 2.5, the commonly used procedure of getting the unbiased estimates using observed values of the predictor variable in the GOR relation shall yield better estimates.

Antarktis: Das CCAMLR-Übereinkommen (Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) und die illegale Überfischung der südlichen Ozeane  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Convention for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) was ratified in 1982. This Convention was established in the light of a rapidly developing krill fishery in the 1970’s. The objectives of the Convention are the rational use of marine living resources as well as the conservation of the resources and the marine ecosystem. Establishing the principle of the ecosystem approach has been rather progressive in fisheries conventions. From the bery beginning CCAMLR had to deal with problems of over-exploited fish stock from the unregulated fishery of pre-CCAMLR times. Antarctic cod and icefish stock were already heavily harvested or even showed signs of overfishing. Conservation measures and the closure of subareas for several years did not always lead to satisfactorily results. While some stock of icefish recovered to the extent, that a new fishery on a low level could be re-opened, other icefish stocks and especially Antarctic cod stocks have not recovered from this early depletion. A new dimension in the fishery developed in the mid 1990’s, when very conservative conservation measures were introduced for the Dissostichus (toothfish), but due to the high commercial value a large illegal fishery developed rapidly in the Convention area. One additional problem of managing the longline fishery for toothfish is the by-catch and incidental mortality of sea-birds, for which special measures were established to avoid sea-bird mortality. The compliance with the measures and the elimination of the illegal fishery require strong actions of the Commission, the political decision-making body of CCAMLR. A future challange for CCAMLR could be the potentially expanding krill fishery. In the understanding of a precautionary approach, the scientific body of CCAMLR has already started to collect biological data and develop management and monitoring models for this fishery.

On the construction of a 2-metre mirror blank for the universal reflecting telescope in Tautenburg (German Title: Über die Fertigung eines 2-Meter-Spiegelträgers für das Universal-Spiegelteleskop in Tautenburg )  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The astronomers' desire to penetrate deeper into space transforms into a demand for larger telescopes. The primary mirror constitutes the main part of a reflecting telescope, and it determines all subsequent activities. Already in the 1930s activities existed in the Schott company to manufacture mirror blanks up to diameters of 2 metres, which could not be pursued because of political constraints. This ambitious goal was again picked up a few years after the war. At a time when the procurement of raw materials was extremely difficult, the glass workers of Schott in Jena attacked this large project. After some failures, a good mirror blank could be delivered to the Carl Zeiss Company in 1951 for further processing and for the construction of the first 2-metre reflecting telescope. From 1960 to 1986, this mirror made from optical glass ZK7 served its purpose at the Karl Schwarzschild Observatory in Tautenburg. lt was then replaced by a zero expansion glass ceramics mirror.

Quadruped robots' modular trajectories: Stability issues  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pinto, Santos, Rocha and Matos [13, 12] study a CPG model for the generation of modular trajectories of quadruped robots. They consider that each movement is composed of two types of primitives: rhythmic and discrete. The rhythmic primitive models the periodic patterns and the discrete primitive is inserted as a perturbation of those patterns. In this paper we begin to tackle numerically the problem of the stability of that mathematical model. We observe that if the discrete part is inserted in all limbs, with equal values, and as an offset of the rhythmic part, the obtained gait is stable and has the same spatial and spatio-temporal symmetry groups as the purely rhythmic gait, differing only on the value of the offset.

Tragedy and the meaning of school shootings.  

PubMed

School shootings are traumatic events that cause a community to question itself, its values, and its educational systems. In this article Bryan Warnick, Benjamin Johnson, and Samuel Rocha explore the meanings of school shootings by examining three recent books on school violence. Topics that grow out of these books include (1) how school shootings might be seen as ceremonial rituals, (2) how schools come to be seen as appropriate places for shootings, and (3) how advice to educators relating to school shootings might change the practice of teaching. The authors present various ways of understanding school shootings that may eventually prove helpful, but they also highlight the problems, tensions, and contradictions associated with each position. In the end, the authors argue, the circumstances surrounding school shootings demonstrate the need for the "tragic sense" in education. This need for the tragic sense, while manifest in many different areas of schooling, is exemplified most clearly in targeted school shootings. PMID:20662173

All is revealed on this excellent site, which contains thoughtful commentary on some of Nevada's tallest tales offered by Guy Rocha, the former Nevada State Archivist. The pieces are divided nine different sections, including "Finding Famous People", "Women in Nevada History", and "Historic Places". A good place to start is the "Historic Places" area. Here visitors can learn about Carson City's oldest tree, Mark Twain's time in the state, and Las Vegas' first post office. Moving on, the "Events" area is quite a pip, as it contains pieces like "Who's On First? Nevada's First Newspaper" and "Staging a Robbery Without a Coach".

Environmental dynamics as a structuring factor for microbial carbon utilization in a subtropical coastal lagoon.  

PubMed

Laguna de Rocha belongs to a series of shallow coastal lagoons located along South America. It is periodically connected to the sea through a sand bar, exhibiting a hydrological cycle where physicochemical and biological gradients are rapidly established and destroyed. Its most frequent state is the separation of a Northern zone with low salinity, high turbidity and nutrient load, and extensive macrophyte growth, and a Southern zone with higher salinity and light penetration, and low nutrient content and macrophyte biomass. This zonation is reflected in microbial assemblages with contrasting abundance, activity, and community composition. The physicochemical conditions exerted a strong influence on community composition, and transplanted assemblages rapidly transformed to resembling the community of the recipient environment. Moreover, the major bacterial groups responded differently to their passage between the zones, being either stimulated or inhibited by the environmental changes, and exhibiting contrasting sensitivities to gradients. Addition of allochthonous carbon sources induced pronounced shifts in the bacterial communities, which in turn affected the microbial trophic web by stimulating heterotrophic flagellates and virus production. By contrast, addition of organic and inorganic nutrient sources (P or N) did not have significant effects. Altogether, our results suggest that (i) the planktonic microbial assemblage of this lagoon is predominantly carbon-limited, (ii) different bacterial groups cope differently with this constraint, and (iii) the hydrological cycle of the lagoon plays a key role for the alleviation or aggravation of bacterial carbon limitation. Based on these findings we propose a model of how hydrology affects the composition of bacterioplankton and of carbon processing in Laguna de Rocha. This might serve as a starting hypothesis for further studies about the microbial ecology of this lagoon, and of comparable transitional systems. PMID:23423262

Astronomical discoveries and the renown of a late humanistic scholar - Marx Welser's role in the discussion on sunspots between Scheiner, Galilei and Kepler. (German Title: Astronomische Entdeckungen und das Renommee eies späthumanistischen Gelehrten - Marx Welsers Rolle in der Sonnenfleckendiskussion zwischen Scheiner, Galilei und Kepler)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The example of the late humanistic scholar Max Welser (1558-1614) from Augsburg proves the gain of recognition of astronomy in the scholarly surroundings, which arose through its new results after the invention of the telescope. This explains why an exponent of the humanistic ideal of education worked towards appearing as the patron of a professional astronomical debate, as it was done by Welser, in 1611-1613, in the debate on sunspots between Christoph Scheiner and Galileo Galilei. Nevertheless, the split in the scholarly world between humanists and scientists proved to be so fundamental at that time, that Welser, in order to be accepted also by the mathematici, had to establish anew his renown in these circles independent of his philological achievements. At the same time, he did not undertake anything to integrate the astronomers into the humanistic res publica litteraria.

Health-related quality of life and disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis  

PubMed Central

BACKGROUND: The present study sought to 1) investigate the degrees of correlations between different disease activity scores (DASs) and health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and 2) determine if DASs correlate with either physical or mental HRQoL. METHODS: Eighty patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were assessed for different DASs, measured with erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) or C-reactive protein (CRP), namely DAS4-ESR, DAS-3 ESR, DAS4-CRP, DAS3-CRP, DAS4-28 ESR, DAS3-28 ESR, DAS4-28 CRP, and DAS3-28 CRP, and Simplified Disease Activity Indexes namely SDAI-ESR, and SDAI-CRP. Physical and mental HRQoL were measured using the SF-36. The Pearson correlation test was employed to examine the correlations between HRQoL and different DAS indices. PASS 2000 (Power Analysis and Sample Size) software was utilized to find significant differences between the correlations. RESULTS: SF-36 total score showed a significant inverse correlation with the DAS4-ESR, DAS-3 ESR, DAS4-CRP, DAS3-CRP, DAS4-28 ESR, DAS3-28 ESR, DAS4-28 CRP, and DAS3-28 CRP, with correlation coefficients of -0.320, -0.314, -0.330, -0.323, -0.327, -0.318, -0.360 and -0.348, respectively (P < 0.01 for all). The correlation coefficients between different DAS indices and the HRQoL score were not significantly different. In addition, all DASs showed significant correlations with physical HRQoL, but not with mental HRQoL. CONCLUSIONS: Among patients with RA, disease severity indices are associated with physical, but not mental HRQoL. However this study failed to show any differences between various DASs in their clinical use.

Molecular characterization of two genes with high similarity to the dihydroxyacetone synthase gene in the methylotrophic yeast Pichia methanolica.  

PubMed

The methylotrophic yeast Pichia methanolica possesses two genes, PmDAS1 and PmDLP1, whose amino acid sequences show high similarity to dihydroxyacetone synthase (DAS), the formaldehyde-fixing enzyme for methanol metabolism within the peroxisome. The PmDAS1 and PmDLP1 genes encode 709 and 707 amino acid residues respectively, and PmDas1p contains a type-1 peroxisomal targeting signal (PTS1), while PmDlp1p does not. Upon phylogenetic analysis, PmDas1p fit into the DAS group with other DASs, while PmDlp1p was grouped with the DAS-like proteins (DLP) of non-methylotrophic yeasts and fungi, a branch of the phylogenetic tree independent of the DAS and transketolase (TK) groups. While expression of PmDAS1 restored the methylotrophic growth of the Candida boidinii das1Delta strain, the PmDLP1 and PmDAS1-DeltaPTS1 genes did not. Taken together, these results indicate that PmDAS1 encodes a functional DAS and has an indispensable role in methanol metabolism, and that PmDlp1p share a common, as yet uncharacterized function in P. methanolica as well as in non-methylotrophic yeasts and fungi.

Effects of Submerged Aquatic Vegetation on Macrobenthos in a Coastal Lagoon of the Southwestern Atlantic  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The northern, freshwater-dominated, edge of Rocha coastal lagoon in Uruguay, South America, was invaded during recent years by submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV). To evaluate the effect of SAV on the composition and abundance of macrozoobenthos, I compared this assemblage between a site that was vegetated in summer-autumn (V) to another one that was always bare (N). Only station V often showed thermal stratification, due to a reduction in water circulation caused by the plants (Potamogeton, Cabomba, Myriophyillum, Ruppia). Both sites had similar water quality and sediment characteristics (70 % sand, 30 % silt). I found a total of 28 benthic taxa: 3 species of Polychaeta, 2 of Mollusca, 3 of Crustacea and 20 genera of Insecta. Taxon richness and total abundance of invertebrates, as well as individual abundance of amphipods, gastropods and chironomids were significantly higher at V compared with N. Conversely, the crustacean Tanais stanfordi, the clam Erodona mactroides and the polychaete Laeonereis culveri were significantly more abundant at the unvegetated site. Moreover, Shannon diversity was higher at N than at V. These results show that the colonization by plants may enhance the variety and the abundance of benthos.

Abelian Higgs cosmic strings: Small-scale structure and loops  

SciTech Connect

Classical lattice simulations of the Abelian Higgs model are used to investigate small-scale structure and loop distributions in cosmic string networks. Use of the field theory ensures that the small-scale physics is captured correctly. The results confirm analytic predictions of Polchinski and Rocha 29 for the two-point correlation function of the string tangent vector, with a power law from length scales of order the string core width up to horizon scale. An analysis of the size distribution of string loops gives a very low number density, of order 1 per horizon volume, in contrast with Nambu-Goto simulations. Further, our loop distribution function does not support the detailed analytic predictions for loop production derived by Dubath et al. 30. Better agreement to our data is found with a model based on loop fragmentation 32, coupled with a constant rate of energy loss into massive radiation. Our results show a strong energy-loss mechanism, which allows the string network to scale without gravitational radiation, but which is not due to the production of string width loops. From evidence of small-scale structure we argue a partial explanation for the scale separation problem of how energy in the very low frequency modes of the string network is transformed into the very high frequency modes of gauge and Higgs radiation. We propose a picture of string network evolution, which reconciles the apparent differences between Nambu-Goto and field theory simulations.

Tidal stretching of gravitons into classical strings: application to jet quenching with AdS/CFT  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Previous work has shown that the standard supergravity approximation can break down when using AdS/CFT duality to study certain top-down formulations of the jet stopping problem in strongly-coupled {N}=4 super-Yang-Mills (SYM) plasmas, depending on the virtuality of the source of the "jet." In this paper, we identify the nature of this breakdown: High-momentum gravitons in the gravitational dual get stretched into relatively large classical string loops by tidal forces associated with the black brane. These stringy excitations of the graviton are not contained in the supergravity approximation, but we show that the jet stopping problem can nonetheless still be solved by drawing on various string-theory methods (the eikonal approximation, the Penrose limit, string quantization in pp-wave backgrounds) to obtain a probability distribution for the late-time classical string loops. In extreme cases, we find that the gravitons are stretched into very long folded strings which are qualitatively similar to the folded classical strings originally used by Gubser, Gulotta, Pufu and Rocha to model the jet stopping problem. This makes a connection in certain cases between the different methods that have been used to study jet stopping with AdS/CFT and gives a specific example of a precise {N}=4 SYM problem that generates such strings in the gravity description.

Strength reduction factors for seismic analyses of buildings exposed to near-fault ground motions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

To estimate the near-fault inelastic response spectra, the accuracy of six existing strength reduction factors ( R) proposed by different investigators were evaluated by using a suite of near-fault earthquake records with directivity-induced pulses. In the evaluation, the force-deformation relationship is modelled by elastic-perfectly plastic, bilinear and stiffness degrading models, and two site conditions, rock and soil, are considered. The R-value ratio (ratio of the R value obtained from the existing R-expressions (or the R-µ- T relationships) to that from inelastic analyses) is used as a measurement parameter. Results show that the R-expressions proposed by Ordaz & Perez-Rocha are the most suitable for near-fault ground motions, followed by the Newmark & Hall and the Berrill et al. relationships. Based on an analysis using the near-fault ground motion dataset, new expressions of R that consider the effects of site conditions are presented and verified.

Self-interaction errors in density functional calculations of electronic transport  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

All density functional (DFT) calculations of single-molecule transport to date have used continuous exchange-correlation approximations, such as the local density approximation (LDA) or the generalized gradient approximation (GGA). These usually provide a good description of metallic systems, but fail in predicting the correct I-V curve for molecules weakly coupled to the current/voltage probes. Most of the problem can be attributed to the lack of the derivative discontinuity of the DFT potential in local approximations. These in fact continuously connect the orbital levels for different integer occupations, leading to qualitative errors such as the erroneous prediction of the dissociation of heteronuclear molecules into fractionally charged ions In this talk I will first describe the typical errors arising from neglecting the derivative discontinuity in transport calculations [1], namely the erroneous prediction of metallic transport for insulating molecules. Then I will present a simple and computationally undemanding atomic self-interaction correction scheme for transport. This preserves the computational and conceptual simplicity of standard LDA, and nevertheless re-introduces part of the derivative discontinuity. The method is implemented in our quantum transport code Smeagol [2] (www. smeagol.tcd.ie) and several examples will be given. [1] C.Toher, A.Filippetti, S.Sanvito, and K.Burke, Phys. Rev.

Ab initio simulations of the transport properties of Mn12 based spin-devices  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Single-molecule magnets (SMMs) represent a unique playground for fundamental quantum physics and exhibit exotic phenomena such as magnetic hysteresis as well as magnetization reversal through quantum tunneling. Recently, transport measurements on Mn12 based molecular magnets in single-molecule-transitor devices have been realized. In this work we present ab initio transport[1] calculations of Mn12 molecules functionalized by thioether groups and sandwiched between gold contacts. We find the transport properties of these SMMs to be dominated by tunneling type behaviour across the organic functional groups and asymmetric coupling to the leads. We observe asymmetric I-V curves under positive and negative bias. In addition we demonstrate that the I-V characteristic changes upon changing the magnetic state of the molecule, suggesting that electrical single-spin detection can be indeed obtained from a detailed knowledge of the I-V.

Unique amino acid substitutions in the capsid proteins of foot-and-mouth disease virus from a persistent infection in cell culture.  

PubMed Central

Maintenance of a persistent foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) infection in BHK-21 cells involves a coevolution of cells and virus (J. C. de la Torre, E. Martínez-Salas, J. Díez, A. Villaverde, F. Gebauer, E. Rocha, M. Dávila, and E. Domingo, J. Virol. 62:2050-2058, 1988). The resident FMDV undergoes a number of phenotypic changes, including a gradual decrease in virion stability. Here we report the nucleotide sequence of the P1 genomic segment of the virus rescued after 100 passages of the carrier cells (R100). Only 5 of 15 mutations in P1 of R100 were silent. Nine amino acid substitutions were fixed on the viral capsid during persistence, and three of the variant amino acids are not represented in the corresponding position of any picornavirus sequenced to date. Cysteine at position 7 of VP3, that provides disulfide bridges at the FMDV fivefold axis, was substituted by valine, as determined by RNA, cDNA, and protein sequencing. The modified virus shows high buoyant density in cesium chloride and depicts the same sensitivity to photoinactivation by intercalating dyes as the parental FMDV C-S8c1. Amino acid substitutions fixed in VP1 resulted in altered antigenicity, as revealed by reactivity with monoclonal antibodies. In addition to defining at the molecular level the alterations the FMDV capsid underwent during persistence, the results show that positions which are highly invariant in an RNA genome may change when viral replication occurs in a modified environment.

Halo Structure Shown by RR Lyrae Stars in the Anticenter Direction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Newberg et al., Yanny et al., Ibata et al., Rocha-Pinto et al., and Martin et al. have reported overdensities of stars that form a ring with a galactocentric distance (Rgal) of <~18 kpc. Martin et al. and Frinchaboy et al. have found star clusters associated with these overdensities; Martin et al. found what seems to be the central overdensity in Canis Major, so we shall refer to it as the CMa ring. The stars in the CMa ring have a small velocity dispersion and [Fe/H] of about -0.4 and -1.6, respectively. Zinn et al. found a small RR Lyrae overdensity in the more populous southern arc of the CMa ring. We do not find any overdensity of RR Lyrae stars in a 65 deg2 field that covers a more tenuous part of the ring in the anticenter. Existing evidence suggests that the halo component of the CMa ring has a horizontal-branch (HB) morphology that does not favor RR Lyrae stars; the evidence from the associated clusters suggests that it may be richer in blue HB stars. Our RR Lyrae sample in the anticenter contains three groups (each containing three stars that have a high probability of physical association). These groups account for half of the RR Lyrae stars with 17 kpc<=Rgal<=28 kpc in this field; all of these RR Lyrae stars are of Oosterhoff I type. It is suggested that they may be globular cluster remnants.

On the Age-Metallicity-Velocity Relation in the Nearby Disk Using the RAVE Survey  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The age-metallicity-velocity relation (AMVR) in the nearby disk is a fundamental issue in our understanding of the evolution of the Milky Way. However, there are still major differences between various versions of this relation (e.g., Twarog 1980, ApJ, 242, 242,Meusinger et al. 1991, A&A, 245, 57, Edvardsson et al. 1993, A&A, 275, 101, Rocha-Pinto et al. 2000, A &A, 358, 850,Quillen & Garnett 2001, Galaxy Disks and Disk Galaxies, ASP, San Francisco, CA, vol. 230, p. 87, Feltzing et al. 2001, A&A, 377,911, and Holmberg et al. 2007, A&A, 475, 519). Also, we have found considerable differences between different methods forage-dating stellar populations and have shown how different methods introduce bias in the AMVR. We are therefore working in a new derivation of these possible relations in the nearby disk, using a carefully selected sample of subgiants stars from RAVE and Geneva-Copenhagen surveys. RAVE provides accurate kinematics and a first estimate of metallicity, temperature, and gravity. Follow-up observations allow us to obtain accurate fundamental parameters via spectrophotometry and highresolution spectroscopy in order to derive reliable ages and generate an AMVR for stars of the Galactic disk.

Rave: The Age-metallicity-velocity Relation In The Nearby Disk  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A fundamental issue in our understanding of the evolution of the Milky Way is the existence of an Age-Metallicity-Velocity relation (AMVR) in the nearby disk. However there are still remarkable differences in the form of this relation (e.g Twarog 1980, Meusinger et al. 1991, Edvardsson et al. 1993, Rocha-Pinto et al. 2000, Quillen & Garnett 2000, Feltzing et al. 2001, Holmberg et al. 2007). Moreover we have found considerable differences between the methods and the populations we use for dating the Galaxy and how a selection of the lowest errors in age introduce bias in the relation. Following this idea we are working in a new derivation of the AMVR. We are using a carefully selected subgiants stars from RAVE and Geneva-Copenhagen surveys. RAVE provides accurate kinematics and a first estimate of metallicity, temperature and gravity. Follow-up observations allow us to obtain accurate fundametal parameters and individual abundances in order to derive reliable ages and generate an AMVR for the nearby disk.

Influence of metabolic and physical factors on production of diacetoxyscirpenol by Fusarium sambucinum Fuckel.  

PubMed Central

Fusarium sambucinum Fuckel 8099-1 was grown on Czapek-Dox peptone-supplemented medium at 15 degrees C for 14 days, and the cultures were investigated for diacetoxyscirpenol (DAS) production by liquid-liquid extraction and gas chromatography. The addition of 150 mg of sorbic acid, a tricarboxylic acid cycle inhibitor, per liter stimulated both fungal growth and DAS production. Among the beta-hydroxy-beta-methylglutaryl coenzyme A precursors tested, isovaleric acid completely inhibited fungal growth and DAS production, ethyl isovalerate did not support a significant increase in DAS production, and L-leucine partially inhibited DAS production, showing that L-leucine and isovaleric acid catabolisms do not induce trichothecene biosynthesis. Solid particles (cork powder) were necessary for DAS production in stationary cultures but did not influence DAS production in shaken cultures. Shaking strongly stimulated DAS production and fungal growth.

Efficiently Assessing Negative Cognition in Depression: An Item Response Theory Analysis of the Dysfunctional Attitude Scale  

Microsoft Academic Search

Despite a central role for dysfunctional attitudes in cognitive theories of depression and the widespread use of the Dysfunctional Attitude Scale, form A (DAS-A; A. Weissman, 1979), the psychometric development of the DAS-A has been relatively limited. The authors used nonparametric item response theory methods to examine the DAS-A items and develop a briefer version of the scale. Using DAS-A

ZusammenfassungStillen gilt international als der Goldstandard der Säuglingsernährung, da es bekanntermassen das Risiko der Säuglingsmorbidität und -mortalität senkt und das Wachstum und die Entwicklung von Kindern verbessert. Bei HIV-Infektionen jedoch erhöht sich das Risiko einer Mutter-Kind-Übertragung (vertikale Transmission) der HIV-Infektion durch das Stillen beträchtlich und zwar proportional zur Stilldauer. Die Empfehlung der Weltgesundheitsorganisation (WHO) lautet folglich, dass Stillen durch HIV-infizierte

Draw a secret (DAS) is a representative graphical password scheme. Rigorous theoretical analysis suggests that DAS supports an overall password space larger than that of the ubiquitous textual password scheme. However, recent research suggests that DAS users tend to choose weak passwords, and their choices would render this theoretically sound scheme less secure in real life. In this paper we

Real-time separation of discontinuous adventitious sounds from vesicular sounds using a fuzzy rule-based filter  

Microsoft Academic Search

The separation of pathological discontinuous adventitious sounds (DAS) from vesicular sounds (VS) is of great importance to the analysis of lung sounds since DAS are related to certain pulmonary pathologies. An automated way of revealing the diagnostic character of DAS, by isolating them from VS, based on their nonstationarity, is presented. The proposed algorithm uses two adaptive network-based fuzzy inference
