Kinetics and Thermodynamics of Glycans and Glycoproteins Binding to Holothuria scabra Lectin: A Fluorescence and Surface Plasmon Resonance Spectroscopic Study.  

PubMed

Holothuria scabra produces a monomeric lectin (HSL) of 182 kDa. HSL showed strong antibacterial activity and induced bacterial agglutination under in vitro conditions, indicating its role in animals' innate immune responses. Very few lectins have been reported from echinoderms and none of these lectins have been explored in detail for their sugar-binding kinetics. Affinity, kinetics and thermodynamic analysis of glycans and glycoproteins binding to HSL were studied by fluorescence and surface plasmon resonance spectroscopy. Lectin binds with higher affinity to O-linked than N-linked asialo glycans, and the affinities were relatively higher than that for sialated glycans and glycoproteins. T-antigen ?-methyl glycoside was the most potent ligand having the highest affinity (Ka 8.32 ×10(7) M(-1)). Thermodynamic and kinetic analysis indicated that the binding of galactosyl Tn-antigen and asialo glycans is accompanied by an enthalpic contribution in addition to higher association rate coupled by low activation energy for the association process. Presence of sialic acid or protein matrix inhibits binding. Higher affinity of HSL for O-glycans than N-glycans had biological implications; since HSL specifically recognizes bacteria, which have mucin or O-glycan cognate on their cell surfaces and play a major role in animal innate immunity. Since, HSL had higher affinity to T-antigen, makes it a useful tool for cancer diagnostic purpose. PMID:23736907

Better red than dead? Potential aposematism in a harpacticoid copepod, Metis holothuriae.  

PubMed

The conspicuous, red harpacticoid Metis holothuriae grows to a large size (?600 ?m length) and accounts for 29.51% of the numerical meiofaunal abundance within blooms of the toxic, benthic cyanobacterium Lyngbya majuscula. Despite this, the meiobenthic juvenile trumpeter whiting, Sillago maculata, consume M. holothuriae at only 2.16% of numerical meiofaunal biomass within simulated blooms, despite their apparent ease of predation. We compared the predation rates of copepods that had been dyed red (primarily Canuellidae and not known to be toxic) to M. holothuriae by S. maculata, to assess whether avoidance by predators is possibly a response to an aposematic signal conveyed by the colouration of the copepods and reinforced by their potential toxicity from exposure to L. majuscula. M. holothuriae were again strongly avoided, with only 6.25% of M. holothuriae consumed, whereas dyed copepods were consumed with relative alacrity, indicating that predation was not deterred by colouration alone. M. holothuriae copepodites were consumed in preference to adult individuals, supporting the idea that toxin accumulation or other factors relating to maturation might explain avoidance by benthivorous fishes.

Screening of microbial contamination and antimicrobial activity of sea cucumber Holothuria polii.  

PubMed

Microbiological studies were carried out on microbial contamination and antimicrobial activity of sea cucumber Holothuria polii collected from Mediterranean Sea at Abu-kir shore of Alexandria, Egypt. The obtained results revealed the presence of isolates of five human Gram-negative pathogenic bacteria, representing five genera were identified to species level, including, Esherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella sp. and Shigella sp. In addition, an yeast Candida albicans was isolated. The pathogenic bacteria were identified using API 20E strip system (BioMereux). All collected H. polii specimens were healthy with no external signs of infection. Histopathological study of the tegument, intestine and gonads showed no abnormal changes. The antimicrobial activity of two tegumental ethanol extracts (A and B, differ in the method of dehydration) were tested against wide range of pathogenic bacteria and fungi, including intestinal, skin and nosocomial pathogens and one plant fungal pathogen. The results revealed a remarkable antifungal activity of the extract B at 2.5 mg/ml MIC90, especially on Aspergillus niger, Scloretium sp, C. albicans, Aspergillus flavus and Malassezia furfur, and limited antibacterial activity against Gram-negative bacteria (Salmonella choleraesuis ATCC 14028 and Aeromonas hydrophila). The domain of bacterial and limited fungal contamination confirms the results that showed strong antifungal activity of investigated extract. PMID:22653870

Differential proteomic response to heat stress in thermal Agrostis scabra and heat-sensitive Agrostis stolonifera.  

PubMed

Knowledge of heat-responsive proteins is critical for further understanding of the molecular mechanisms of heat tolerance. The objective of this study was to compare proteins differentially expressed in two C(3) grass species contrasting in heat tolerance, heat-tolerant thermal Agrostis scabra and heat-sensitive Agrostis stolonifera L., and to identify heat-responsive proteins for short- and long-term responses. Plants were exposed to 20/15 degrees C (day/night, control) or 40/35 degrees C (day/night, heat stress) in growth chambers. Leaves were harvested at 2 and 10 days after temperature treatment. Proteins were extracted and separated by fluorescence difference gel electrophoresis (DIGE). Thermal A. scabra had superior heat tolerance than A. stolonifera, as indicated by the maintenance of higher chlorophyll content and photochemical efficiency under heat stress. The two-dimensional difference electrophoresis detected 68 heat-responsive proteins in the two species. Thermal A. scabra had more protein spots either down- or up-regulated at 2 days of heat stress, but fewer protein spots were altered at 10 days of heat stress compared with A. stolonifera. Many protein spots exhibited transient down-regulation in thermal A. scabra (only at 2 days of heat treatment), whereas down-regulation of many proteins was also found at 10 days of heat treatment in A. stolonifera, which suggested that protein metabolism in thermal A. scabra might acclimate to heat stress more rapidly than those in A. stolonifera. The sequences of 56 differentially expressed protein spots were identified using mass spectrometry. The results suggest that the maintenance or less severe down-regulation of proteins during long-term (10 days) heat stress may contribute to the superior heat tolerance in thermal A. scabra, including those involved in photosynthesis [RuBisCo, RuBisCo activase, chloroplastic glyceraldehydes-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), chloroplastic aldolase, oxygen-evolving complex, photosystem I subunits], dark respiration (cytosolic GAPDH, cytoplasmic aldolase, malate dehydrogenase, hydroxypyruvate reductase, sedoheptulose-1,7-bisphosphatase), photorespiration [(hydroxypyruvate reductase, alanine aminotransferase (AlaAT), hydroxymethyltransferase (SHMT), glycine decarboxylase (GDC)], as well as heat and oxidative stress protection [heat shock cognate (HSC) 70 and FtsH-like protein].

Hepatoprotection of Gentiana scabra extract and polyphenols in liver of carbon tetrachloride-intoxicated mice.  

PubMed

In traditional Chinese medicine, the rhizomes of Gentiana scabra are used to treat hepatitis, stomatitis, and inflammatory diseases. This study aimed to examine the protective effects of G. scabra aqueous extract (GS) and polyphenols in liver of CCl4-intoxicated mice. Antioxidant activities of GS were also evaluated. Results showed that GS exhibited anti-lipid peroxidation, 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl, and superoxide radical scavenging activities with IC50 values of 45.84, 183.38, and 56.25 ?/mL, respectively. High-performance liquid chromatography analysis revealed that the major polyphenolic constituents of GS were kaempferol, ellagic acid, and quercetin. Daily oral administration of 500 mg/kg GS (GS500) and 1000 mg/kg GS (GS1000) significantly prevented the elevation of glutamic pyruvic transaminase and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances levels, while enhancing the levels of antioxidant enzymes (superoxide dismutase, catalase, and glutathione peroxidase) and serum total antioxidant activity in mice with hepatoxicity. At 1000 mg/kg, GS was as effective as 100 mg/kg silymarin in reducing oxidative stress and preventing liver injury. Histopathological studies further confirmed the hepatoprotective activity of GS. Taken together, these results show that the antioxidant activities and polyphenolic compounds (kaempferol, ellagic acid, and quercetin) of GS may have contributed to its hepatoprotective activity in CCl4-intoxicated mice, and its mechanism of action could be mediated through the reduction of oxidative stress in liver tissue.

Neuroanatomy of the tube feet and tentacles in Holothuria glaberrima (Holothuroidea, Echinodermata)  

PubMed Central

Echinoderms are a key group in understanding the evolution of the nervous system in the Metazoa. Remarkably, little is known about echinoderm neurobiology. The echinoderm podia, which are unique echinoderm modifications and comprise structures responsible for locomotion and feeding, have been largely neglected in nervous system studies. Here, we have applied immunohistological approaches using different neuronal markers to describe the neuroanatomy of the holothurian podia and its relation to the muscular component. We show, using the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima (Selenka, 1867), the direct innervation of the podia by the ectoneural component of the nervous system, as well as the existence of a connection between the nervous system components in the main nerves, the muscle, and the connective tissue. These findings confirm the ectoneural origin of the tube feet’s main nervous system and demonstrate its neuroanatomic complexity. We also show the presence of fibers and neurons within the tube feet mesothelium and connective tissue. The study of these simple structures will help us elucidate the echinoderms’ neuromuscular circuit and their evolutionary relationships.

Holothuria grisea agglutinin (HGA): the first invertebrate lectin with anti-inflammatory effects.  

PubMed

Holothuria grisea agglutinin (HGA) is a dimeric lectin of molecular mass 228 kDa by gel filtration with monomers of 105 kDa by SDS-PAGE. The lectin is highly thermostable as it retains full activity for 1 h at 70 °C. Unlike other lectins purified from marine invertebrates, the hemagglutination activity of HGA does not require any divalent metal ions. The affinity analysis of HGA showed that only mucin was able to inhibit the hemagglutinating activity. HGA administered intravenously was tested in classical models of nociception and inflammation. HGA was able to inhibit neutrophil migration into the peritoneal cavity induced by carrageenan. This inhibitory effect was 68% at a dose of 1 mg/kg. In acetic acid-induced writhing tests, a significant antinociceptive effect was observed by treatment with HGA (0.1; 1 or 10 mg/kg) reducing constrictions by 27, 90 and 84%, respectively. In formalin tests, HGA at a dose of 10 mg/kg showed antinociceptive effect only in the inflammatory phase (phase 2). Nevertheless, in hot-plate tests, HGA did not show any nociceptive effect. In rota-rod and open-field tests, HGA did not alter the animals' behavior. The treatment with HGA 10 mg/kg presented diminished myeloperoxidase activity activity (81.6% inhibition) and raised the circulating levels of NO by 50.4% when compared with the carrageenan group. HGA has demonstrated the ability to modulate the inflammatory response in models of inflammation in vivo. HGA is the first marine invertebrate lectin that showed an anti-inflammatory effect. This finding opens a new perspective on the potential of lectins from the marine environment. PMID:22943744

Common cellular events occur during wound healing and organ regeneration in the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima  

PubMed Central

Background All animals possess some type of tissue repair mechanism. In some species, the capacity to repair tissues is limited to the healing of wounds. Other species, such as echinoderms, posses a striking repair capability that can include the replacement of entire organs. It has been reported that some mechanisms, namely extracellular matrix remodeling, appear to occur in most repair processes. However, it remains unclear to what extent the process of organ regeneration, particularly in animals where loss and regeneration of complex structures is a programmed natural event, is similar to wound healing. We have now used the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima to address this question. Results Animals were lesioned by making a 3–5 mm transverse incision between one of the longitudinal muscle pairs along the bodywall. Lesioned tissues included muscle, nerve, water canal and dermis. Animals were allowed to heal for up to four weeks (2, 6, 12, 20, and 28 days post-injury) before sacrificed. Tissues were sectioned in a cryostat and changes in cellular and tissue elements during repair were evaluated using classical dyes, immmuohistochemistry and phalloidin labeling. In addition, the temporal and spatial distribution of cell proliferation in the animals was assayed using BrdU incorporation. We found that cellular events associated with wound healing in H. glaberrima correspond to those previously shown to occur during intestinal regeneration. These include: (1) an increase in the number of spherule-containing cells, (2) remodeling of the extracellular matrix, (3) formation of spindle-like structures that signal dedifferentiation of muscle cells in the area flanking the lesion site and (4) intense cellular division occurring mainly in the coelomic epithelium after the first week of regeneration. Conclusion Our data indicate that H. glaberrima employs analogous cellular mechanisms during wound healing and organ regeneration. Thus, it is possible that regenerative limitations in some organisms are due either to the absence of particular mechanisms associated with repair or the inability of activating the repair process in some tissues or stages.

Influence of three bacteria strains on the population dynamics of Tisbe holothuriae (Copepoda, Harpacticoida)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The influence of three bacteria strains (Helgo 21, NCMB 308 and NCMB 13) on the life cycle of Tisbe holothuriae Humes 1957 was investigated under constant experimental conditions (19 20°C and 38‰ S). For each of the first six experiments, females (F1), whose life history was followed, were obtained from a common mother (F0). Experiment no 7 was carried out with adult females (F2) obtained during exp. 4. Females were bred in 50-ml dishes and transferred to a fresh container as soon as they produced a new egg-sac. Offspring (F2: exp. 1 6; F3: exp. 7) from successive egg-layings were counted as soon as they moulted into adults. Larval mortality was estimated by enumeration of the adults issuing from a known number of nauplii that had been fed different bacteria strains. Some difficulties arose in obtaining adults with NCMB 13: it appeared to be necessary to provide this first generation with a small quantity of TetraMin (commercial fish food) in order to initiate reproduction and obtain a second generation. However, in exp. 4, F2 adult females fed NCMB 13 became ovigerous and fertile without needing TetraMin. This result is interpreted as denoting an indispensable period of adaptation to the diet, which probably requires important changes at the enzymatic level. One experiment was carried out with Helgo 21; another one with NCMB 308; two with NCMB 13 (with a unique additional meal of TetraMin to allow reproduction), two with NCMB 13 during larval development, then only tetraMin during adult stage, and one with NCMB 13 alone (with females issued from exp. 4). Data obtained regarding longevity, duration of reproduction period, number of egg-sacs and number of adult descendants show an important variability between bacteria strains. Lower results were almost always obtained with Helgo 21 and NCMB 308. An interesting result lies in the maximum number of egg-sacs: low with Helgo 21 and NCMB 308 (5), but very ample with NCMB 13 (11 in one experiment). In experiment 7, carried out with animals bearing a large coefficient of inbreeding (0.375), the results concerning the maximum number of egg-sacs are good (10) as are the mean number of descendants per female (294: the highest number of the seven experiments). These results indicate that genetic factors involved in the reduction of descendants in ageing laboratory cultures can be suppressed to a certain extent by nutritional factors. The poor results obtained with Helgo 21 and NCMB 308 alone must be considered with caution: after a period of adaptation with an alimentary complement, these strains could perhaps permit an interesting production of copepods.

The effect of sea cucumber Holothuria tubulosa (G., 1788) on nutrient and sediment of Aegean Sea shores.  

PubMed

The effects of sea cucumber, Holothuria tubulosa, on sediment of hypereutrophic conditions were investigated. Research was designed as two groups with 3 replicates. And data determined from sea cucumber groups were compared to that of the control. Water samples and sediment samples were analyzed three times in a week with respect to nitrogenous materials and organic carbon. The differences between the initial and final concentrations of % C, ammonium, nitrate and nitrite were significant (p < 0.05) at the end of the 84 days of experiment. The data from the present study showed that sea cucumber played an important role in the refreshing of sea water. Therefore, it can be suggested that sea cucumbers might be successfully used for the improvement of coastal regions especially in the areas with fish farming. PMID:19069539

Electrophysiological properties of isolated photoreceptors from the eye of Lima scabra  

PubMed Central

Photoreceptor cells were enzymatically dissociated from the eye of the file clam, Lima scabra. Micrographs of solitary cells reveal a villous rhabdomeric lobe, a smooth soma, and a heavily pigmented intermediate region. Membrane voltage recordings using patch electrodes show resting potentials around -60 mV. Input resistance ranges from 300 M omega to greater than 1 G omega, while membrane capacitance is of the order of 50-70 pF. In darkness, quantum bumps occur spontaneously and their frequency can be increased by dim continuous illumination in a fashion graded with light intensity. Stimulation with flashes of light produces a depolarizing photoresponse which is usually followed by a transient hyperpolarization if the stimulus is sufficiently intense. Changing the membrane potential with current-clamp causes the early phase to invert around +10 mV, while the hyperpolarizing dip disappears around -80 mV. With bright light, the biphasic response is followed by an additional depolarizing wave, often accompanied by a burst of action potentials. Both Na and Ca ions are required in the extracellular solution for normal photoexcitation: the response to flashes of moderate intensity is greatly degraded either when Na is replaced with Tris, or when Ca is substituted with Mg. By contrast, quantum bumps elicited by dim, sustained light are not affected by Ca removal, but they are markedly suppressed in a reversible way in 0 Na sea water. It was concluded that the generation of the receptor potential is primarily dependent on Na ions, whereas Ca is probably involved in a voltage-dependent process that shapes the photoresponse. Light adaptation by repetitive flashes leads to a decrease of the depolarizing phase and a concomitant enhancement of the hyperpolarizing dip, eventually resulting in a purely hyperpolarizing photoresponse. Dark adaptation restores the original biphasic shape of the photoresponse.

The snail, Littoraria scabra, is a dominant grazer on tropical mangrove trees, and may play an important role in the food web dynamics of these ecosystems. Its daily vertical migration to avoid tidal submersion results in exposure to varying food types and abundances. A comprehensive diet analysis - gut contents, fatty acid profiles, and stable isotopes ( ?15N and ?13C) - was conducted on snails migrating along mangrove trees and snails maintained in non-tidal mesocosms at Nananu-i-ra, Fiji Islands. In addition, fatty acid profiles and stable isotope signatures were obtained from surface scrapings of mangrove roots, trunks, branches, and leaves. Results from this multi-technique study indicate that L. scabra is mainly a generalist herbivore, which easily shifts diets depending on food availability, and which also has the ability to ingest and assimilate zooplankton. Ingestion of greater quantities of diverse foods (i.e., microalgae, foliose/corticated macrophytes, filamentous algae, mangrove tissues, zooplankton) takes place in the bottom areas of mangrove trees (roots and trunks) during low tides, while top areas (branches and leaves) provide limited food resources for snails feeding during high tides. However, snails preferentially assimilate microalgae and bacteria, regardless of their feeding habitat (different areas within mangrove trees and non-tidal mesocosms). The daily vertical movements of this snail result in variable feeding times, ingestion of different food types and amounts, and different assimilations. These findings also suggest that organic matter derived from mangrove tissues may not be readily transferred to higher trophic levels through this grazing pathway.

Calbindin-D32k Is Localized to a Subpopulation of Neurons in the Nervous System of the Sea Cucumber Holothuria glaberrima (Echinodermata)  

PubMed Central

Members of the calbindin subfamily serve as markers of subpopulations of neurons within the vertebrate nervous system. Although markers of these proteins are widely available and used, their application to invertebrate nervous systems has been very limited. In this study we investigated the presence and distribution of members of the calbindin subfamily in the sea cucumber Holothuria glaberrima (Selenka, 1867). Immunohistological experiments with antibodies made against rat calbindin 1, parvalbumin, and calbindin 2, showed that these antibodies labeled cells and fibers within the nervous system of H. glaberrima. Most of the cells and fibers were co-labeled with the neural-specific marker RN1, showing their neural specificity. These were distributed throughout all of the nervous structures, including the connective tissue plexi of the body wall and podia. Bioinformatics analyses of the possible antigen recognized by these markers showed that a calbindin 2-like protein present in the sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, corresponded to the calbindin-D32k previously identified in other invertebrates. Western blots with anti-calbindin 1 and anti-parvalbumin showed that these markers recognized an antigen of approximately 32 kDa in homogenates of radial nerve cords of H. glaberrima and Lytechinus variegatus. Furthermore, immunoreactivity with anti-calbindin 1 and anti-parvalbumin was obtained to a fragment of calbindin-D32k of H. glaberrima. Our findings suggest that calbindin-D32k is present in invertebrates and its sequence is more similar to the vertebrate calbindin 2 than to calbindin 1. Thus, characterization of calbindin-D32k in echinoderms provides an important view of the evolution of this protein family and represents a valuable marker to study the nervous system of invertebrates.

Prevalence of Haplorchis taichui in field-collected snails: a molecular approach.  

PubMed

The prevalence of the cercarial stage of an intestinal trematode, Haplorchis taichui, in thiarid snails (Gastropoda: Thiaridae) was investigated using light microscope and species-specific PCR procedures. A total of 988 snails were collected from Mae Taeng district, Chiang Mai province, northern Thailand, which comprised of 3 species; Melanoides tuberculata, Tarebia granifera, and Thiara scabra. The overall prevalence of pleurolophocercous cercariae was 21.7% as determined by the morphology. For genetic detection of H. taichui infection in snails, 2 primers Hapt_F (5'-GGCCAACGCAATCGTCATCC-3') and Hapt_R (5'-GCGTCGGGTTTCAGACATGG-3'), were used. The genomic DNA of H. taichui, which was used as a positive control, gave an amplification of the 256 bp fragment. The overall prevalence of H. taichui from specific PCR was 9.7%. The proportion of H. taichui among the pleurolophocercous cercariae in this study was 44.9%. PMID:21234240

Digitial Collections: Boston College  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

John J. Burns Library, Rare Books and Special Collections at Boston College, offers some of its collections on the Web. The largest is the Liturgy and Life Collection, approximately 1,200 artifacts selected from perhaps the "most comprehensive archive in America on the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church." Also available are Boston Gas Company photos, about 400 images from the 1880s to the 1970s, documenting both the company and the city of Boston, and Thomas P. O'Neill Photographs, primarily from O'Neill's years as Speaker of the US House of Representatives. All of the databases allow browsing as well as searching, very helpful for users who do not know if Saint Christopher is entered as St. or Saint. Unlike other religious history collections, many of the pictures in Liturgy & Life are images of objects that people owned and carried in their pockets, such as the nineteen Saint Christopher medals that I located with the browse function. Be sure to check out the Gas Company collection's fascinating views of pre-1900 Boston, including over 200 cyanotypes that reproduce beautifully on the Web.

Heat collection system  

SciTech Connect

A heat collection system is disclosed which is capable of collecting heat from an animal husbandry enclosures such as a dairy barn, and transferring the heat into a home. Animal husbandry enclosures, such as dairy barns, tend to have excess heat, even in winter, the excess heat normally being wasted. The heat is collected by a pair of evaporators located in the dairy barn, with the evaporators being oversized to limit the amount of cooling taking place in the barn. Fluid from the evaporators is compressed by compressors after which it passes through a condenser from which heat may be extracted into the home. Pressure regulating valves are provided to insure that the compressors are not overloaded and to insure that a maximum heating effect is achieved. A thermostatically controlled fan is provided to drive air across the condenser so that heat is introduced into the home.

The STARLINK software collection  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A demonstration will be given of some recent Starlink software. STARLINK is: a network of computers used by UK astronomers; a collection of programs for the calibration and analysis of astronomical data; a team of people giving hardware, software and administrative support. The Starlink Project has been in operation since 1980 to provide UK astronomers with interactive image processing and data reduction facilities. There are now Starlink computer systems at 25 UK locations, serving about 1500 registered users. The Starlink software collection now has about 25 major packages covering a wide range of astronomical data reduction and analysis techniques, as well as many smaller programs and utilities. At the core of most of the packages is a common `software environment', which provides many of the functions which applications need and offers standardized methods of structuring and accessing data. The software environment simplifies programming and support, and makes it easy to use different packages for different stages of the data reduction. Users see a consistent style, and can mix applications without hitting problems of differing data formats. The Project group coordinates the writing and distribution of this software collection, which is Unix based. Outside the UK, Starlink is used at a large number of places, which range from installations at major UK telescopes, which are Starlink-compatible and managed like Starlink sites, to individuals who run only small parts of the Starlink software collection.

Collective stimulated Brillouin scatter  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We develop a statistical theory of stimulated Brillouin backscatter (BSBS) of a spatially and temporally partially incoherent laser beam for laser fusion relevant plasma. We find a new collective regime of BSBS which has a much larger threshold than the classical threshold of a coherent beam in long-scale-length laser fusion plasma. We identify two contributions to BSBS convective instability increment. The first is collective with intensity threshold independent of the laser correlation time and controlled by diffraction. The second is independent of diffraction, it grows with increase of the correlation time and does not have an intensity threshold. The instability threshold is inside the typical parameter region of National Ignition Facility. We also find that the bandwidth of KrF-laser-based fusion systems would be large enough to allow additional suppression of BSBS.

Empire Ranch Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The history of ranching in the American West is an engaging one, and it involves a myriad of players, including farmers, politicians, and power brokers of all stripes. The Empire Ranch in southern Arizona was one of the largest cattle ranches in the state, and its story dates back to the 1860s. Homesteader Edward Nye Fish first established the ranch, and it was originally just a mere160 acres. By the 1880s, the ranch was over a million acres and it later became a popular filming destination for many Westerns in the 1950s and 1960s. Today, the ranch is part of the Las Cienegas National Conservation Area. This digital collection brings together over 50 documents from the University of Arizona Libraries Special Collections department, including photographs and diaries from one of the primary owners of the ranch, Edward Vail. Visitors will also find other documents here, including grazing permits, maps of the property, and railroad ephemera.

Concurrence in collective models  

SciTech Connect

We review the entanglement properties in collective models and their relationship with quantum phase transitions. Focusing on the concurrence, which characterizes the two-spin entanglement, we show that for first-order transitions, this quantity is singular but continuous at the transition point, contrary to the common belief. We also propose a conjecture for the concurrence of arbitrary symmetric states which connects it with a recently proposed criterion for bipartite entanglement.

Alfred Russel Wallace Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

One name looms large for the general public when the word "evolution" is mentioned: Charles Darwin. Of course, others are quite aware that Alfred Russel Wallace co-discovered the theory of evolution with Darwin, a fact that the prescient individuals at the Natural History Museum in Britain are well aware of. In 2002, the Museum was able to purchase a rather large collection of Wallace's personal and related family papers, correspondence, photographs, and other items from the Wallace family. With the generous support of the Mellon Foundation, the Museum has digitized approximately 200 items from this collection and placed them online at this site. Visitors may wish to start by looking over a brief biography of Wallace, and then taking a look at the detailed chronology of the main events in his life. The "Online Collection" section is where the heart of the material lies, as visitors can view Wallace's original notes on evolution, read about his encounters with spiritualism, and a number of touching letters that include a note on Wallace's troubles with his cats, Crumpet and Flunkie.

Polish Declarations Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The relationship between Poland and the United States has existed for several centuries, as early as the Revolutionary War some of the key figures were great Polish military heroes, such as Casimir Pulaski and Tadeusz Kosciuszko. Continuing and strengthening the relationship between these two countries over the years are the many Poles who have immigrated to the United States. Recently, the Library of Congress digitized one of the most interesting (and little-known) documents in their collection, the Polish Declarations of Admiration and Friendship for the United States. The 111-volume collection was given to President Calvin Coolidge in 1926 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of US independence. These ornately decorated volumes were signed over an eight-month period by nearly one-sixth of Poland's population in 1926, totaling close to 5.5 million signatures. The Library of Congress has digitized the first eleven volumes, and placed them online here for consideration by genealogists, historians, and other interested parties. The first several volumes contain the signatures of government officials, artists (including full-size works of art), and signatures from three institutions of higher learning. Visitors can search the contents by keyword, geographic locations, and by title. Overall, this is a rather remarkable collection, and one that will merit several visits.

Transportation Library Menu Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

To fly the friendly skies in the 1950s and 1960s across the continent (or the Atlantic) was quite an experience. To say nothing of the possible turbulence, the culinary offerings in flight could be quite outstanding. The late George M. Foster (an anthropologist and consultant) was there at the beginning of such pioneering commercial air travel. He collected hundreds of menus from his time on trains, planes, and cruise ships, and he gave them to Northwestern University in 1997. This digital collection from the Northwestern University Library allows users to look at these items in all of their glorious detail. After clicking on "View the Contents" visitors can make their way through menus from Air Canada, Cathay Pacific, United Airlines, and so on. First-time visitors should not miss the menu from a Chicago to Amsterdam flight on KLM that Mr. Foster took on June 21, 1979. Finally, visitors should also read the letter that Mr. Foster wrote about the collection shortly before he passed away in 2006.

Collective uncertainty entanglement test.  

PubMed

For a given pure state of a composite quantum system we analyze the product of its projections onto a set of locally orthogonal separable pure states. We derive a bound for this product analogous to the entropic uncertainty relations. For bipartite systems the bound is saturated for maximally entangled states and it allows us to construct a family of entanglement measures, we shall call collectibility. As these quantities are experimentally accessible, the approach advocated contributes to the task of experimental quantification of quantum entanglement, while for a three-qubit system it is capable to identify the genuine three-party entanglement.

Bowen Country Club Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

One of the ambitions of service groups like Chicago's Hull House was to provide urban youth with an opportunity to get out and experience some clean fresh air. The Hull House on Chicago's Near West Side took children from the surrounding neighborhood out to the Joseph T. Bowen Country Club every year from 1912 until 1963. The Club was financed by social activist and philanthropist Louise deKoven Bowen, and was located on 72 hilly and forested acres near Waukegan, Illinois. Young people from the city would come out to the grounds in two-week shifts and take part in team sports contests, learn how to dance, and also take art lessons. This wonderful photo collection from the Special Collections Department of the University of Illinois at Chicago's library presents over 480 images of life at the club. Visitors to the site will find images of camp activities, the grounds, social life, and the broader milieu of the place. It's quite a find and one that will be of interest to persons with an interest in Chicago history and the history of outdoor recreation.

The George Raper Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This new online exhibit highlights the National Library of Australia's latest acquisition, the personal papers of George Raper, who sailed in 1787 at age seventeen from England to Australia as Able Seaman (later Midshipman) on the HMS Sirius, the flagship of the First Fleet. In addition to participating in one of the earliest European settlements of Australia, Raper circumnavigated the globe, narrowly escaped shipwreck twice, spent eleven months on Norfolk Island after the Sirius foundered on a reef in 1790, and finally returned home, where he and the other officers had to face a court-martial for losing the ship (all were exonerated) before being reunited with his family. Held by the Raper family for over 200 years, the National Library has recently acquired Raper's naval observations as well as a collection of maps and coastal drawings he made during this trip. These have been digitized and placed on display at this fine site. Some of these materials are included in the compelling story of the Sirius in the Biography section. They can also be viewed in the Collection section, where the maps, coastal profiles, and Raper's painting of the wreck are offered as thumbnails with commentary. Users with the MrSID Online Viewer plug-in (link to free download provided) can view the images in varying sizes and resolutions. Raper's navigation calculations may be downloaded in MS Word format.

Milman Parry Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Part musicologist, part just plain curious, Milman Parry embarked on a quest to document and record the musical traditions of South Slavic song in the 1930s. Along the way, he came up with a provocative thesis: The epic tradition of storytelling and narrative present in the Iliad and Odyssey were not originally literary in nature, but rather part of the tradition of an archaic Greek oral tradition. After he passed away in 1935, his rather impressive collection found its way to Harvard University. Over the past few years, the staff at the Widener Library at Harvard have worked to place many of his field recordings and notes online, and their work has culminated in this fine website. Visitors to the site will want to listen to a few of these songs, and then perhaps also read some of the essays that explain the importance of his work, and that of his colleague, Albert B. Lord.

Funding collection programs  

SciTech Connect

In principle, paying for waste management services should be easy. Each person should be responsible for paying for his or her share of waste management costs. The price paid should be based on the most equitable, most environmentally sound, and most efficient management method. Everyone knows that life is not that simple. In the real world, decisions about how to pay for waste management services are based upon a variety of factors, including cost, equity, administrative ease, legal restrictions, legislative policies and mandates, historic precedent, and politics. Communities and service providers need to carefully consider these and other factors in developing and implementing a funding approach. This chapter will describe the issues that communities and service providers must address in developing the best strategy for funding waste and recyclable collection programs.

Created as part of the University of Miami Libraries Digital Collections, this rather remarkable offering includes an assortment of documents related to various aspects of FloridaâÂÂs history, life, and culture from 1777 to the 1920s. The range of materials here includes correspondence diaries, invoices, receipts, reports, and other documents. Key highlights cover a range from the Seminole Wars to the early days of Miami history. The user interface here is quite useful as visitors can use the Location Map & Timeline to browse around from Pensacola down to the Keys. Also, visitors can use the Subject Index area to look around from "Abstracts of Title" to "Yulee, David Levy." First-time visitors may wish to start by looking at the signature of Napoleon B. Broward and then wandering on over to a unique deed from the Florida East Coast Railway.

The Leonard Bernstein Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This American Memory Website from the Library of Congress (previewed in the August 28, 1998 Scout Report) features materials from the Library's massive collection of documents by and about the American composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein. The site offers 85 photographs, over 1,100 pieces of Bernstein's correspondence, and more than 250 scripts from the conductor's well-known Young People's Concerts and Thursday Evening Previews with the New York Philharmonic. These scripts are in the form of facsimile versions of Bernstein's musical outlines and written notes in preparation for his trademark presentations of music and spoken commentary. The correspondence also gives, among other things, a strong indication of Bernstein's tendency to conduct not only orchestras, but the lives of his loved ones as well. The material can be searched by keyword or browsed by title, name, or subject.

The Florida Folklife Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

With generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the Florida State Archives has recently finished an ambitious two-year project to enhance access to a number of items in the Florida Folklife Collection by creating The Florida Memory Project website. No doubt the site will be of great interest to folklorists and the general public, as it contains an online index with descriptions of 50,000 photographic images and close to 5,000 audio recordings. Additionally, visitors can peruse over 10,000 of these photographic images by performing detailed searches. Visitors can also look through the audio section for a number of real finds, including a WPA recording of a work song performed by Zora Neale Hurston along with other folk song recordings. The site also includes five separate educational units, which may be used in the classroom, or perused at the discretion of each visitor. The units include discussions of the history of net making and net fishing in Florida and the creation of Seminole dolls by noted doll maker Mary B. Billie.

Emergence of Collective Memories  

PubMed Central

Background We understand the dynamics of the world around us as by associating pairs of events, where one event has some influence on the other. These pairs of events can be aggregated into a web of memories representing our understanding of an episode of history. The events and the associations between them need not be directly experienced—they can also be acquired by communication. In this paper we take a network approach to study the dynamics of memories of history. Methodology/Principal Findings First we investigate the network structure of a data set consisting of reported events by several individuals and how associations connect them. We focus our measurement on degree distributions, degree correlations, cycles (which represent inconsistencies as they would break the time ordering) and community structure. We proceed to model effects of communication using an agent-based model. We investigate the conditions for the memory webs of different individuals to converge to collective memories, how groups where the individuals have similar memories (but different from other groups) can form. Conclusions/Significance Our work outlines how the cognitive representation of memories and social structure can co-evolve as a contagious process. We generate some testable hypotheses including that the number of groups is limited as a function of the total population size.

WTO Seattle Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Few were prepared for the events of November 30th, 1999 in the usually peaceable town of Seattle. As the World Trade Organization (WTO) began its opening conference ceremonies, protestors began to coalesce around the doors of the Washington State Convention Center. The protestors were there to protest many of the actions of the WTO, and by the end of the day this situation was quite chaotic as the Seattle Police Department ran low on tear gas and Seattle Mayor Paul Schell declared a state of emergency. The protest received wide national and international coverage, and this digital collection from the University of Washington brings together some of the ephemeral printed material that was generated around the time of the demonstrations. Users can perform a keyword search on the database, or they can search the materials by category headings, which include "photographs", "planning documents", and "environment". For students of international protest movements, social action, and other related matters, this site will be quite interesting.

Lehman Brothers Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In the late 1840s, Henry Lehman made the journey from Germany to Alabama, where he established a dry goods store. Several years later, he was joined by his two brothers and over the coming years the firm of Lehman Brothers would become a commodities broker buying and selling cotton for the planters in the area. They opened a New York office in 1858, and during the next century and a half they would become one of the world's most prominent financial firms. Lehman Brothers collapsed in 2008, but curious persons can still learn about their various dealings via this site. The Lehman Brothers Collection at Harvard University's Baker Library contains digitized records of their deal books from the 1920s to the 1980s. On the homepage, visitors can learn about the history of the firm, and also use the "Using the Deal Books" to learn how to decipher all of their transactions. The deal books can also be browsed by chronology, company, or industry. That's far from all, as the site also has extensive business records, which include executive records, financial documents, and correspondence. Taken as a whole, it's a tremendous resource for persons with an interest in business history and American history more generally.

Collective excitations of ? hypernuclei  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We discuss low-lying collective excitations of ? hypernuclei using the self-consistent mean-field approaches. We first discuss the deformation properties of ? hypernuclei in the sd-shell region. Based on the relativistic mean-field (RMF) approach, we show that the oblate deformation for 28Si may disappear when a ? particle is added to this nucleus. We then discuss the rotational excitations of Mg?25 using the three-dimensional potential energy surface in the deformation plane obtained with the Skyrme–Hartree–Fock method. The deformation of Mg?25 is predicted to be slightly reduced due to an addition of a ? particle. We demonstrate that this leads to a reduction of electromagnetic transition probability, B(E2), in the ground state rotational band. We also present an application of random phase approximation (RPA) to hypernuclei, and show that a new dipole mode, which we call a soft dipole ? mode, appears in hypernuclei, which can be interpreted as an oscillation of the ? particle against the core nucleus.

Hematopoietic progenitor cell collection.  

PubMed

Hematopoietic progenitor cells can be mobilized from the bone marrow microenvironment into the peripheral blood following treatment of patients with myeloid cytokines (GCSF, GMCSF, IL3), a CXCR4 antagonist (Plerixafor) and/or following a hematopoietic recovery from cytotoxic chemotherapy. The hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells are contained within the mononuclear cell fraction of peripheral blood and can be collected by apheresis in which the cellular constituents of the blood are separated on the basis of their buoyant density. Modern apheresis allows processing of five or more blood volumes (24 L or more) over a 4-5-h period to efficiently remove and separate more than 70 % of the CD34 positive cell progenitors present to blood. Management of a patient undergoing apheresis requires careful attention to venous access, calcium placement to counteract the effects of the citrate uses anticoagulant and hemodynamic monitoring. The principles of setting up the COBE spectra and its operation are reviewed. Management of common toxicities including hypocalcemia, allergic reactions, and vasovagal reactions are described in the next chapter. PMID:22890924

The essay explores the hypothesis of colonial collecting processes involving the active addition of the colonial context and historical past to museum objects through the production of short stories. It examines the emergent historicity of collections through a focus on the "histories" that museum workers and colonial agents have been attaching to scientific collections of human skulls. Drawing on the notions of collection trajectory and historiographical work, it offers an alternative perspective from which to approach the creation of singular histories and individual archives for objects in collections.

Collective Hamiltonian for chiral modes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A collective model is proposed to describe the chiral rotation and vibration and applied to a system with one h11/2 proton particle and one h11/2 neutron hole coupled to a triaxial rigid rotor. The collective Hamiltonian is constructed from the potential energy and mass parameter obtained in the tilted axis cranking approach. By diagonalizing the collective Hamiltonian with a box boundary condition, it is found that for the chiral rotation, the partner states become more degenerate with the increase of the cranking frequency, and for the chiral vibrations, their important roles for the collective excitation are revealed at the beginning of the chiral rotation region.

On the psychodynamics of collecting.  

PubMed

The urge to collect is a ubiquitous phenomenon which has anthropological, sociobiological and individual psychodynamic roots, but occurs far more frequently among men than women. The author examines the reasons for this gender difference and defines systematic collecting to distinguish it from addictive, obsessive and messy collecting, and from related phenomena such as perversion. The mode of collecting and choice of object are important indicators as to the unconscious psychodynamics of a collector and offer opportunity to describe his structural level. Collecting ranges across a broad spectrum, from an ego-syntonic integrated mode, i.e. sublimation, to a neurotic defence against pre-oedipal or oedipal traumas and conflicts. Alongside this drive-theoretical approach, object and Kleinian theory are also applied to the understanding of collecting. Collecting represents a specific form of object relating and way of handling primary loss trauma, which is different from addiction, compulsion, or perversion. Under certain circumstances collecting can also result in a successful Gestalt or way of life. The paper concludes with a case study showing how collecting develops from a pre-oedipal to a more integrated oedipal mode during the course of the analysis, which is reflected in changes in the transference.

Tritium monitor and collection system  

DOEpatents

This system measures tritium on-line and collects tritium from a flowing inert gas stream. It separates the tritium from other non-hydrogen isotope contaminating gases, whether radioactive or not. The collecting portion of the system is constructed of various zirconium alloys called getters. These alloys adsorb tritium in any of its forms at one temperature and at a higher temperature release it as a gas. The system consists of four on-line getters and heaters, two ion chamber detectors, two collection getters, and two guard getters. When the incoming gas stream is valved through the on-line getters, 99.9% of it is adsorbed and the remainder continues to the guard getter where traces of tritium not collected earlier are adsorbed. The inert gas stream then exits the system to the decay chamber. Once the on-line getter has collected tritium for a predetermined time, it is valved off and the next online getter is valved on. Simultaneously, the first getter is heated and a pure helium purge is employed to carry the tritium from the getter. The tritium loaded gas stream is then routed through an ion chamber which measures the tritium activity. The ion chamber effluent passes through a collection getter that readsorbs the tritium and is removable from the system once it is loaded and is then replaced with a clean getter. Prior to removal of the collection getter, the system switches to a parallel collection getter. The effluent from the collection getter passes through a guard getter to remove traces of tritium prior to exiting the system. The tritium loaded collection getter, once removed, is analyzed by liquid scintillation techniques. The entire sequence is under computer control except for the removal and analysis of the collection getter.

This article discusses the history and present use of collective doses for occupational, ALARA, EIS and other purposes with reference to practical industry papers and government reports. The linear no-threshold (LNT) hypothesis suggests that collective doses which consist of very small doses added together should be used. Moral and ethical questions are discussed, particularly the emphasis on individual doses to the exclusion of societal risks, uncertainty over effects into the distant future and hesitation over calculating collective detriments. It is concluded that for moral, practical and legal reasons, collective dose is a valid parameter which should continue to be used. PMID:10750951

Blood component collection by apheresis.  

PubMed

Apheresis component collection is a rapidly growing area in the blood collection field. Several instruments with varying capabilities are available. This is a brief review of the equipment available for granulocyte and apheresis component collection and indications for their use. In the United States, granulocytes are collected with the Fenwal CS3000, Fenwal CS3000 Plus, COBE (Gambro) Spectra, Haemonetics LN9000, and Fresenius AS 104. The use of hetastarch for sedimenting agent and stimulation with G-CSF and G-CSF plus dexamethasone have substantially increased granulocyte yields. Plateletapheresis is performed in the United States on the Fenwal CS3000, Fenwal CS3000 Plus, Fenwal Amicus, COBE (Gambro) Spectra, Gambro Trima Version 4, Gambro Trima Accel (Version 5), and Haemonetics LN9000. Automated red blood cell (RBC) collections are performed with the Haemonetics MCS+LN8150, Gambro Trima Version 4, Gambro Trima Accel (Version 5), Amicus, and Baxter Alyx. The RBC can be collected concurrently (with other components) in some instruments or separately in others. Plasma is collected concurrently on several instruments. Plasmapheresis for plasma only is performed on the Fenwal Autopheresis C and Haemonetics PCS2. Granulocyte yields range from 0.46 x 10(10) to 1.0 x 10(10) for unstimulated donors and 2.1 x 10(10) to 2.6 x 10(10) for donors stimulated with dexamethasone or prednisone. The use of G-CSF and G-CSF with dexamethasone has substantially increased granulocyte yields with yields of 4.1 x 10(10) to 10.8 x 10(10) reported. Platelet collection rates of 0.045-0.115 x 10(11) plt/min have been reported. Collection efficiencies of 46-85.7% have been reported. Automated (apheresis) component collection has the advantages of controlled volumes or doses of component, efficient use of the donor, multiple components from the same donor, better inventory control, and better quality control due to less manipulation of the individual components. Disadvantages of automated component collection include the use of expensive equipment and disposables, the need for specially trained machine operators, and lower capacity to collect large volumes of blood compared to whole blood donation. The use of apheresis component collection is rapidly growing to provide the best blood components in the most efficient manner. PMID:15880369

This taxonomy is used as a framework to explore distribution issues: locality of action, communication overhead and indeterministic communication latency.

Schistosomiasis collection at NHM (SCAN)  

PubMed Central

Background The Natural History Museum (NHM) is developing a repository for schistosomiasis-related material, the Schistosomiasis Collection at NHM (SCAN) as part of its existing Wolfson Wellcome Biomedical Laboratory (WWBL). This is timely because a major research and evaluation effort to understand control and move towards elimination of schistosomiasis in Africa has been initiated by the Schistosomiasis Consortium for Operational Research and Evaluation (SCORE), resulting in the collection of many important biological samples, including larval schistosomes and snails. SCAN will collaborate with a number of research groups and control teams and the repository will acquire samples relevant to both immediate and future research interest. The samples collected through ongoing research and field activities, WWBL’s existing collections, and other acquisitions will be maintained over the long term and made available to the global research community for approved research purposes. Goals include: · Consolidation of the existing NHM schistosome and snail collections and transfer of specimens into suitable long-term storage systems for DNA retrieval, · Long-term and stable storage of specimens collected as part of on going field programmes initially in Africa especially relating to the SCORE research programmes, · Provision of access to snail and schistosome collections for approved research activities.

The EMBRACE web service collection  

PubMed Central

The EMBRACE (European Model for Bioinformatics Research and Community Education) web service collection is the culmination of a 5-year project that set out to investigate issues involved in developing and deploying web services for use in the life sciences. The project concluded that in order for web services to achieve widespread adoption, standards must be defined for the choice of web service technology, for semantically annotating both service function and the data exchanged, and a mechanism for discovering services must be provided. Building on this, the project developed: EDAM, an ontology for describing life science web services; BioXSD, a schema for exchanging data between services; and a centralized registry (http://www.embraceregistry.net) that collects together around 1000 services developed by the consortium partners. This article presents the current status of the collection and its associated recommendations and standards definitions.

Controlling Collective Behaviors of Dictyostelium  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We study the collective dynamics of a population of Dictyostelium cells, focusing on how single cell dynamics influence, and give rise to, the behavior of the aggregate. Through analysis of quantitative single cell experiments, we develop a simple model of the single cell response to time-dependent pulses of the extracellular signaling molecule cAMP, characterized by a particular type of excitable system. We then use this model to study collective multicellular dynamics mediated by diffusion coupling. We first consider the mean-field case where we find an intriguing ``dynamical quorum sensing'' transition in which all cells simultaneously transition from quiescent to oscillating across the phase boundary. Then we include spatial dynamics and study pattern formation, both with and without the cells capable of chemotactic response to signal gradients. Finally, we highlight how modification of single cells can alter the collective dynamics.

Collective oscillations of ultracold matter  

SciTech Connect

We consider the collective oscillations of an ultracold atomic cloud by using a wave kinetic description which retains phonon recoil effects. We derive an exact quantum-wave dispersion relation for hybrid plasma-acoustic oscillations and the associated atomic Landau damping. The quasilinear kinetic theory is also extended into the quantum regime, leading to a Boltzmann type of equation for the atoms in a collective force field. Comparison with our previous quasiclassical results is considered. Diffusion in velocity space due to density fluctuations is discussed in detail. This will us allow to establish an additional temperature limit, different from the usual Doppler limit, below which the laser cooling process is prevented by the density fluctuations. This work could also be useful to describe low-frequency Doppler instabilities, as well as collective phonon laser processes.

For years librarians discarded historical curriculum collections because they were not current, and because the libraries did not have adequate space to store them. Therefore, records of trends in subject content taught to generations of children and young people from kindergarten through grade 12 were unwittingly destroyed. In response to this…

The Sheffield data collection system  

Microsoft Academic Search

Because of the intrinsically low sensitivity of any surface potential measurement to resistivity changes within a volume conductor, any data collection system for impedance imaging must be sensitive to changes in the peripheral potential profile of the order of 0.1%. For example, whilst the resistivity changes associated with lung ventilation and the movement of blood during the cardiac cycle range

Collaborative filtering with collective training  

Microsoft Academic Search

Rating sparsity is a critical issue for collaborative filtering. For example, the well-known Netflix Movie rating data contain ratings of only about 1% user-item pairs. One way to address this rating sparsity problem is to develop more effective methods for training rating prediction models. To this end, in this paper, we introduce a collective training paradigm to automatically and effectively

Collectivity of {sup 98}Pd  

SciTech Connect

The N = 52 nucleus {sup 98}Pd was investigated at the Cologne TANDEM accelerator both with the Cologne plunger using the recoil distance Doppler-shift method (RDDS) and with the Cologne HORUS spectrometer for a {gamma}{gamma} angular correlation experiment. For the first time lifetimes of yrast states and highly excited low-spin states were measured in {sup 98}Pd and the low-spin level scheme was extended. From our data we were able to interpret {sup 98}Pd as a nucleus that exhibits some collective features, but is obviously much less collective than the neighboring N = 52 isotones {sup 94}Mo and {sup 96}Ru due to its closeness to doubly-magic {sup 100}Sn.

Students Collecting Real time Data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Students Collecting Real-Time Data The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary has created opportunities for middle and high school students to become Student Researchers and to be involved in real-time marine data collection. It is important that we expose students to different fields of science and encourage them to enter scientific fields of study. The Humpback Whale Sanctuary has an education visitor center in Kihei, Maui. Located right on the beach, the site has become a living classroom facility. There is a traditional Hawaiian fishpond fronting the property. The fishpond wall is being restored, using traditional methods. The site has the incredible opportunity of incorporating Hawaiian cultural practices with scientific studies. The Sanctuary offers opportunities for students to get involved in monitoring and data collection studies. Invasive Seaweed Study: Students are collecting data on invasive seaweed for the University of Hawaii. They pull a large net through the shallow waters. Seaweed is sorted, identified and weighed. The invasive seaweeds are removed. The data is recorded and sent to UH. Remote controlled monitoring boats: The sanctuary has 6 boogie board sized remote controlled boats used to monitor reefs. Boats have a camera with lights on the underside. The boats have water quality monitoring devices and GPS units. The video from the underwater camera is transmitted via a wireless transmission. Students are able to monitor the fish, limu and invertebrate populations on the reef and collect water quality data via television monitors or computers. The boat can also pull a small plankton tow net. Data is being compiled into data bases. Artificial Reef Modules: The Sanctuary has a scientific permit from the state to build and deploy artificial reef modules. High school students are designing and building modules. These are deployed out in the Fishpond fronting the Sanctuary site and students are monitoring them on a weekly basis. Students are also building traditional Hawaiian modules, these being piles of rocks and attaching seaweeds to the rocks with natural fibers. The purpose of all these is to help restore habitat to the fishpond. Monitoring the Fishpond; The fishpond wall is presently being rebuilt. The new wall stands about eight feet high and twelve feet wide. The rocks to rebuild the wall are all being located underwater where the old wall stood. The state has required different information collected as the wall is reconstructed. Students GPS mapped the rock edges of the fallen wall, and will continue to map the progress of the new wall. Other students are monitoring the erosion of the sand dunes that front the edges of the wall and are also looking at the new deposition of sand in the pond. Students are snorkeling, running transects and collecting data on the changing populations of fish, invertebrates and seaweeds in the pond. The wall is only about a forth built and already we are seeing growth in the populations. Students and teachers work with the sanctuary staff to develop projects. The sanctuary loans the equipment to the students and the students collect the data for the sanctuary. It is a great partnership with the schools. The Sanctuary has been given a Congressional Earmark this year to develop marine curriculum for the Department of Education. Projects listed above are part of this curriculum with hopes of many more to be developed. By 2008, all seniors must participate in some type of research project to graduate. The goal is to offer opportunities for many of these projects to become marine science related projects and thus develop a budding new group of marine scientists.

Amherst College: Emily Dickinson Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

To say Emily Dickinson has an association with Amherst College is a bit of an understatement. Her grandfather, Samuel Fowler Dickinson, was one of the founders of the college and her father, Edward Dickinson, was treasurer of the school for over 35 years. In 1956, Millicent Todd Bingham gave Amherst College the Dickinson poems and Dickinson family papers she inherited from her mother, Mabel Todd Bingham. Many of these wonderful materials were digitized for this fine collation, and lovers of poetry and American literature will find this entire collection to be a real delight. Visitors to the site will find 850 documents here, including drafts of poems like "Further in summer than the birds" and "On that Specific Pillow." Visitors can search the collection by genre, contributor, subject, or date range. After selecting a particular item, visitors can also zoom in and out as they see fit to get a sense of Dickinson's handwriting and creative process.

Symmetry, constrained bosons and collectivity  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Collective states in a given nucleus can be associated with a subset of states of the oscillator shell model (OSM). This subset is characterized by a definite irreducible representation (irrep) of the orthogonal subgroup O(n) of the U(3n) symmetry group of the OSM, where n is the number of nucleons. We show that these collective states can be described with the help of s and d bosons also constrained by the same irrep of O(n) and indicate a procedure by which these bosons can be determined as functions of the coordinates a and momenta of the many nucleon problem. An analogy with the Zeeman effect for a one particle problem in an oscillator potential, illustrates the elementary nature of the concepts involved.

Collective migration and cell jamming.  

PubMed

Our traditional physical picture holds with the intuitive notion that each individual cell comprising the cellular collective senses signals or gradients and then mobilizes physical forces in response. Those forces, in turn, drive local cellular motions from which collective cellular migrations emerge. Although it does not account for spontaneous noisy fluctuations that can be quite large, the tacit assumption has been one of linear causality in which systematic local motions, on average, are the shadow of local forces, and these local forces are the shadow of the local signals. New lines of evidence now suggest a rather different physical picture in which dominant mechanical events may not be local, the cascade of mechanical causality may be not so linear, and, surprisingly, the fluctuations may not be noise as much as they are an essential feature of mechanism. Here we argue for a novel synthesis in which fluctuations and non-local cooperative events that typify the cellular collective might be illuminated by the unifying concept of cell jamming. Jamming has the potential to pull together diverse factors that are already known to contribute but previously had been considered for the most part as acting separately and independently. These include cellular crowding, intercellular force transmission, cadherin-dependent cell-cell adhesion, integrin-dependent cell-substrate adhesion, myosin-dependent motile force and contractility, actin-dependent deformability, proliferation, compression and stretch.

R. Buckminster Fuller Digital Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

It is hard to classify R. Buckminster Fuller, but at the very least, it is fair to say he was an architect, a planner, an engineer, an inventor, and a Renaissance man in the best sense of the phrase. With support from the Save America's Treasures Program, Stanford University has seen fit to digitally reformat a wide range of very valuable audio and video materials culled from their R. Buckminster Fuller Collection. First-time visitors will need to create a login password before accessing the materials, but never fear, as it only takes a moment. After that, they will have complete access to all the materials within the collection. It's not a bad idea to start by looking through the "Browse" area first, and here they will find interviews with Fuller, along with the "Being with Bucky" seminars. Those who are completely unfamiliar with Fuller's work may wish to start by clicking on the "Exploring Bucky" area. Here they can read over brief answers to "Who was Bucky Fuller?" and "What is a geodesic dome?" For architects, engineers, and many others, this collection will be quite a find.

Collective communication routines in PVM  

SciTech Connect

The collective communication routines of scatter, gather, and reduce are frequently implemented as part of the native library for parallel architectures. These operations have been implemented in PVM for use among a heterogeneous system of workstations and parallel computers forming a virtual parallel machine. In the case of the Intel Paragon machines, the PVM implementation of the reduce operation utilizes the corresponding native mode library routines whenever possible. This paper describes the implementation of these collective communication routines in PVM including the utilization of the Intel Paragon native mode operations. Performance data is also given comparing the use of the native Intel Paragon collective routines and the PVM implementation on top of these routines on a dedicated Intel Paragon. For our timing results an average latency of 109 {mu}s is incurred using PVM as compared to the native Intel global sum routine. This extra startup is independent of the size of the message being sent and the number of nodes in the group. It is demonstrated that the use of static groups is preferable in time efficiency over the use of dynamic groups.

Walter Gordon Collection of Photographs  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In the first half of the 20th century, the well-known African American attorney Walter L. Gordon had his office next to the African American newspaper, the California Eagle. The photographers for the paper often shot pictures of Black social life in Los Angeles, and once printed these photos were often discarded. Gordon saved many of these photos and began collecting the images, which often depicted leading members of the Black community in Los Angeles. His collection made its way to UCLA, and their digital collections group digitized over 800 of his photographs. Here visitors will find images of black resorts such as Val Verde, local political figures, and a range of jazz legends, such as Count Basie and Billie Holliday. Currently, visitors can view almost 300 of these items, and they can browse the photos by language, name, subject, or type. There are some real gems in here, including a great photo of Lionel Hampton on the stage and a cast photo of the members of "Carmen Jones" at an informal gathering. The image viewer here is quite impressive, as visitors can add a grid of select photos for comparative viewing and also manipulate each image as they see fit.

Optical implementation of collective communications  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper describes the use of optics to enable collective communications between clusters of processors, within a `loosely synchronous' model of computation. In this model, phases of internal computation inside processors, alternate with phases of communication among processors. Collective communication, as in the new message passing interface (MPI) standard, means concerted action in a single command, e.g. shift of data from each processor to its right neighbor. Unlike previous work on general purpose optical implementation of given interconnects topology, that was concerned with providing only point-to-point communication, our work tries to provide services that improve programmability by the end- user. We are implementing a prototype with 3 clusters of 4 processors each, with an intra- cluster electronic crossbar. Inter-cluster communication is done via lasers transmitting message beams, which are suitably deflected in free-space to other clusters by means of acousto-optic devices. A typical collective communication comand is (multicast(source,Targetlist)), where the individual processors of the TargetList may reside in different clusters. Cluster addresses are encoded as acoustic wave input. Processor addresses are transmitted in the optical message headers, decoded at the detectors and redirected within the crossbar. The prototype itself and preliminary experiments are discussed.

Brooker Collection at Boston College  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

A number of years back, the Boston College Law Library received a tremendous gift from Robert E. Brooker, III. Over many decades, Brooker had assembled some 2500 documents and manuscripts that tell the story of land use and legal systems in Boston and the New England area from 1716 to 1930. These documents include deeds of lands, contracts for goods and services, wills, letters, and estate inventories. Visitors to this collection can view all of these documents, and legal historians, geographers, and historians of New England will have a field day with the offerings here. One particularly note-worthy item is item #1013, which is a beautiful deed signed in October 1738 by Isaac Harris. It is the oldest deed in the collection, and it includes a transcript for those who don't want to squint while looking at the screen. Of course, visitors can also search through all of the items, and they are encouraged to use the viewing tools as well.

Open Collections Program: Women Working  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Established in November 2002 with the generous support of the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Open Collections Program at Harvard University Library is designed "to increase the availability and use of textual and visual historical resources for teaching, learning, and research." The first project within the terms of this impressive remit is the Women Working, 1870-1930 digitized collection. Within this broad topical area, the documents currently available here are largely centered around the experience of working women during this period in Boston. Currently, over 450 documents are available for perusal, although at the completion of the project, over 3000 documents will be publicly available through this site. Visitors may browse through the New Additions area, look through the materials by topic (such as home labor, arts, or business), or perform a full text search. Also, users should make sure and browse through the diary of one H. Greene, a woman who lived on her family farm in Seneca County, Ohio, and who offers her recollections of the year 1887.

Collective effects in complex plasma  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In complex plasmas together with single particle behavior the study of collective phenomena in large assemblies is an important development. We analyze the interaction among particles in plasma in several cases, starting from clusters consisting of a few particles up to large assemblies. In some cases the formation of the self-built electric field at the edge of the cluster and the screening of an external electric field by the dust cloud are predicted. In the case of small clusters the formation of double layers at the edge of a cluster is considered. The dimension of the cluster plays a role. The competition for charge is crucial in explaining agglomeration of mesoscopic particles. Larger particles, of the size of a Debye length, agglomerate mainly because of the ion 'shadow' force, a small scale aspect of the self-built field. Experiments with an expansion of dust clusters in an external plasma sheath seem to prove the existence of the self-built electric field at the edge of the cloud and the screening of external sheath fields. Other experiments, such as formation of bubbles, lanes, electrorheological properties and 2D dislocations in crystals, enlarge the investigations on collective effects and show their importance in complex plasmas. .

On the collective curvature radiation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper, we study one possible mechanism of pulsar radio emission (i.e. with the collective curvature radiation of the relativistic particle stream moving along the curved magnetospheric magnetic field lines). We show that an electromagnetic wave that contains one cylindrical harmonic exp {is?} cannot be radiated by the curvature radiation mechanism, which corresponds to the radiation of a charged particle moving along curved magnetic field lines. The point is that a particle in a vacuum radiates the triplex of harmonics (s, s± 1) in which the polarization of the emitted wave changes from one point to another on a circle of constant radius, while for one s-harmonic the polarization remains constant. So, for the collective curvature radiation, the wave polarization is very important and cannot be fixed a priori. For this reason, the polarization of real unstable waves must be determined directly from the solution of wave equations for the media. Its electromagnetic properties should be described by the dielectric permittivity tensor ?, which contains information on the reaction on all possible types of radiation.

Collecting saliva samples by mail.  

PubMed

Collecting saliva samples by mail can serve numerous purposes in epidemiologic research. The objectives of this study were to assess what proportion of participants in a mail survey would provide a saliva sample and whether incentives could improve participation. In 1995, 2,994 students, faculty, and staff members of Geneva University, Geneva, Switzerland, were randomized to receive, together with a mailed questionnaire about smoking, a saliva vial, a ballpoint pen, the offer of a lottery, or any combination of these. After one mailing and a reminder letter, response rates were 52% among those who had been requested to provide saliva and 63% among controls (p < 0.001). In the former group, most respondents (98%) provided a saliva sample. Incentives improved participation only among those who were asked to provide saliva (lottery: +11% response, p = 0.003; pen: +6% response, p = 0.1). The final participation, after up to three reminders, was 76% overall. The authors conclude that while the collection of saliva samples by mail is feasible it tends to decrease response rates.

Mary Binney Wheeler Image Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In 1907, Mary Binney Wheeler was born into a prominent Philadelphia family. She was quite talented in the musical and terpsichorean arts; at the age of 17, she performed at Carnegie Hall as a soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Later in life, she developed a deep and abiding interest in South Asian art and culture. Over the course of 14 trips to the area, she took over 9,000 photographs in India and Sri Lanka. Her work was recognized by the National Geographic Society, the Indian government, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art as being of tremendous importance as it documented everything from washing laundry to the Himalayan Mountains. This collection is a marvel, and visitors can use the Navigating the Digital Collection area to learn how to most effectively look through the archive. The site also includes a detailed biography of Wheeler's life. Finally, the Lectures area should not be missed. There are six wonderful illustrated lectures here, narrated by Ms. Wheeler. They cover Sri Lanka, life in the ancient palaces, and the Valley of the Sky.

ARTICLE A test of Brown's principle in the intertidal limpet Collisella scabra (Gould, 1846)

Aim Brown's principle predicts that a species will peak in density near its range centre, and decline gradually towards the margins of its geographical distribution. The decline is assumed to reflect a decrease in individual performance near range margins. I test this abundance-performance hypothesis by comparing patterns in density and size across the northern half of the geographical distribution of

George Washington Carver Digital Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

George Washington Carver was many things to many people: at various points in his life he was a scholar, teacher, inventor, and student. From humble roots in southwestern Missouri, Carver went on to wear many hats. This fine digital collection from the Iowa State University brings together over 200 photographs, letters, and other items held in the ISU archives. The majority of the correspondence here is between Carver and his mentor, Dr. Louis Pammel, and their words cover a wide variety of topics, including peanuts, scientific experimentation, and so on. There are many wonderful photos of Carver, including his graduation photo from 1893, taken the year before he formally graduated from the Iowa Agricultural College. Visitors who might be less familiar with the contours of Carver life may also wish to read the narrative essay on his life by Toby Fishbein.

Collective excitations of supersymmetric plasma  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Collective excitations of N=1 supersymmetric electromagnetic plasma are studied. Since the Keldysh-Schwinger approach is used, not only equilibrium but also nonequilibrium plasma, which is assumed to be ultrarelativistic, is under consideration. The dispersion equations of photon, photino, electron, and selectron modes are written down and the self-energies, which enter the equations, are computed in the hard loop approximation. The self-energies are discussed in the context of effective action which is also given. The photon modes and electron ones appear to be the same as in the usual ultrarelativistic plasma of electrons, positrons, and photons. The photino modes coincide with the electron ones and the selectron modes are as of a free relativistic massive particle.

The Collective Atomic Recoil Laser  

SciTech Connect

An ensemble of periodically ordered atoms coherently scatters the light of an incident laser beam. The scattered and the incident light may interfere and give rise to a light intensity modulation and thus to optical dipole forces which, in turn, emphasize the atomic ordering. This positive feedback is at the origin of the collective atomic recoil laser (CARL). We demonstrate this dynamics using ultracold atoms confined by dipole forces in a unidirectionally pumped far red-detuned high-finesse optical ring cavity. Under the influence of an additional dissipative force exerted by an optical molasses the atoms, starting from an unordered distribution, spontaneously form a density grating moving at constant velocity. Additionally, steady state lasing is observed in the reverse direction if the pump laser power exceeds a certain threshold. We compare the dynamics of the atomic trajectories to the behavior of globally coupled oscillators, which exhibit phase transitions from incoherent to coherent states if the coupling strength exceeds a critical value.

Real time psychrometric data collection  

SciTech Connect

Eight Mine Weather Stations (MWS) installed at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) to monitor the underground ventilation system are helping to simulate real-time ventilation scenarios. Seasonal weather extremes can result in variations of Natural Ventilation Pressure (NVP) which can significantly effect the ventilation system. The eight MWS(s) (which previously collected and stored temperature, barometric pressure and relative humidity data for subsequent NVP calculations) were upgraded to provide continuous real-time data to the site wide Central monitoring System. This data can now be utilized by the ventilation engineer to create realtime ventilation simulations and trends which assist in the prediction and mitigation of NVP and psychrometric related events.

Network Characteristics of Collective Chemosensing  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The collective chemosensing of nonexcitable mammalian cells involves a biochemical network that features gap junction communications and heterogeneous single cell activities. To understand the integrated multicellular chemosensing, we study the calcium dynamics of micropatterned fibroblast cell colonies in response to adenosine triphosphate (ATP) stimulation. We find that the cross-correlation function between the responses of individual cells decays with topological distance as a power law for large colonies and much faster for smaller colonies. Furthermore, the strongly correlated cell pairs tend to form clusters and are more likely to exceed the percolation threshold. At a given topological distance, the cross-correlations exhibit characteristics of Poisson distributions, which allows us to estimate the unitary conductance of a single gap junction which is in good agreement with direct experimental measurements.

MAD data collection - current trends.  

SciTech Connect

The multi-wavelength anomalous diffraction, or MAD, method of determining protein structure is becoming routine in protein crystallography. An increase in the number of tuneable synchrotrons beamlines coupled with the widespread availability position-sensitive X-ray detectors based on charged-coupled devices and having fast readout raised MAD structure determination to a new and exciting level. Ultra-fast MAD data collection is now possible. Recognition of the value of selenium for phasing protein structures and improvement of methods for incorporating selenium into proteins in the form of selenomethionine have attracted greater interest in the MAD method. Recent developments in crystallographic software are complimenting the above advances, paving the way for rapid protein structure determination. An overview of a typical MAD experiment is described here, with emphasis on the rates and quality of data acquisition now achievable at beamlines developed at third-generation synchrotrons sources.

Apparatus for collecting solar beams  

SciTech Connect

There is disclosed a solar beam collector for use in collecting and condensing solar beams to introduce them into light guides or conductors. To ensure that almost all components of the white light and other radiations including ultra-violet and infra-red rays are introduced into the light guides, parabolic mirrors are employed in order to converge all of the solar beams having various wave lengths at the inlet of the light guides, thereby avoiding the problem of chromatic aberration. The solar beam collector is compact in size and comprises a first parabolic mirror for converging the arriving solar beams, a second parabolic mirror for condensing the beams from the first mirror into parallel beams, a third parabolic mirror for converging the parallel beams from the second mirror at a fixed focus, and a light guide having an inlet end placed at the focus of the third mirror.

Collective motion in animal groups  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In recent years there has been a growing interest in the relationship between individual behavior and population-level properties in animal groups. One of the fundamental problems is related to spatial scale; how do interactions over a local range result in population properties at larger, averaged, scales, and how can we integrate the properties of aggregates over these scales? Many group-living animals exhibit complex, and coordinated, spatio-temporal patterns which despite their ubiquity and ecological importance are very poorly understood. This is largely due to the difficulties associated with quantifying the motion of, and interactions among, many animals simultaneously. It is on how these behaviors scale to collective behaviors that I will focus here. Using a combined empirical approach (using novel computer vision techniques) and individual-based computer models, I investigate pattern formation in both invertebrate and vertebrate systems, including - Collective memory and self-organized group structure in vertebrate groups (Couzin, I.D., Krause, J., James, R., Ruxton, G.D. & Franks, N.R. (2002) Journal of Theoretical Biology 218, 1-11. (2) Couzin, I.D. & Krause, J. (2003) Advances in the Study of Behavior 32, 1-75. (3) Hoare, D.J., Couzin, I.D. Godin, J.-G. & Krause, J.

Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Digital Library Program at Indiana University (IU), with funding from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, presents this digital version of 14,500 color slides taken by amateur photographer Charles Cushman between 1938 and 1969. Cushman, an IU alum who graduated in 1917, left the University his entire collection of photographs, along with a set of notebooks, in which he recorded descriptions of the thousands of images he shot. Cushman's photographs provide wonderful documentation of the first half of the 20th century, from a girl with pigtails jumping rope on a sidewalk in Indiana, to Chicago architecture, to over 100 pictures of Istanbul, Turkey. Subject headings were added to Cushman's descriptions by image catalogers, providing the basis for the searching and browsing capabilities of the digital version. Currently, users can browse by date, location, subject, and genre, as well as viewing page images of Cushman's notebooks. In December 2003, search enhancements will be released, such as the ability to broaden or narrow a search using related terms, and browsing based on the structure of the subject heading sources.

Collective Irrationality and Positive Feedback  

PubMed Central

Recent experiments on ants and slime moulds have assessed the degree to which they make rational decisions when presented with a number of alternative food sources or shelter. Ants and slime moulds are just two examples of a wide range of species and biological processes that use positive feedback mechanisms to reach decisions. Here we use a generic, experimentally validated model of positive feedback between group members to show that the probability of taking the best of options depends crucially on the strength of feedback. We show how the probability of choosing the best option can be maximized by applying an optimal feedback strength. Importantly, this optimal value depends on the number of options, so that when we change the number of options the preference of the group changes, producing apparent “irrationalities”. We thus reinterpret the idea that collectives show "rational" or "irrational" preferences as being a necessary consequence of the use of positive feedback. We argue that positive feedback is a heuristic which often produces fast and accurate group decision-making, but is always susceptible to apparent irrationality when studied under particular experimental conditions.

Entanglement Swapping via Collective Decay  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Quantum entanglement has achieved a prime position in current research due to its central role in quantum information science. Recently, attention has been focused on reservoir-induced entanglement with the purpose of shedding light on the generation of entangled qubits at remote separation [1]. In addition to the entanglement generation, a teleportation scheme for atomic and solid state qubits, which is based on the Dicke effect, is also proposed [1]. In contrast to usual schemes, it's a ``one-pass'' teleportation by a joint measurement Based on these, we go one-step further to propose a scheme for entanglement swapping. As shown in Fig. 1, the singlet entangled state is generated between atom 1 (2) and the left (right) cavity photon as atom 1 (2) has passed through the left (right) cavity. Atoms 1 and 2 then decay collectively. If the measurement outcome is a single photon with sub-radiant decay rate, entanglement swapping to the two cavity photons is achieved automatically. As for the result of one photon with super-radiant decay rate, all one has to do is to perform a phase-gate operation on the cavity photon state to complete the entanglement. [1] Y. N. Chen, D. S. Chuu, and T. Brandes, Phys. Rev. Lett. 90, 166802 (2003); New Journal of Physics 7, 172 (2005).

Collective antibiotic treatment of trachoma  

PubMed Central

By the early 1950's, it was clear from numerous independent reports that certain of the broad-spectrum antibiotics were effective against the agent of trachoma. It seemed, however, that treatment had to be continued over long periods to effect a cure of the average case. With the assistance of WHO, comparative trials on a scale hitherto unprecedented in the disease—involving more than 9000 schoolchildren with active trachoma—have been conducted in Morocco since 1953 in order to assess the value of local treatment of trachoma with chlortetracycline and to develop simple and economic methods of treatment, for which there was a pressing need. Local application of 1% chlortetracycline ointment two or three times daily for 60 days gave almost 80% cures under reasonably favourable conditions and nearly 100% cures after re-treatment of cases not cured by the first course. Equally good results followed intermittent short-term treatment over longer periods. Relapse and reinfection rates were low. Collective mass treatment with antibiotics is clearly a valuable method of trachoma control. The use of intermittent treatment allows for a great economy both in antibiotics and in staff and other campaign expenses and makes possible the wide expansion of mass treatment programmes.

Collective dynamics of social annotation  

PubMed Central

The enormous increase of popularity and use of the worldwide web has led in the recent years to important changes in the ways people communicate. An interesting example of this fact is provided by the now very popular social annotation systems, through which users annotate resources (such as web pages or digital photographs) with keywords known as “tags.” Understanding the rich emergent structures resulting from the uncoordinated actions of users calls for an interdisciplinary effort. In particular concepts borrowed from statistical physics, such as random walks (RWs), and complex networks theory, can effectively contribute to the mathematical modeling of social annotation systems. Here, we show that the process of social annotation can be seen as a collective but uncoordinated exploration of an underlying semantic space, pictured as a graph, through a series of RWs. This modeling framework reproduces several aspects, thus far unexplained, of social annotation, among which are the peculiar growth of the size of the vocabulary used by the community and its complex network structure that represents an externalization of semantic structures grounded in cognition and that are typically hard to access.

Through the process of protecting our unique and treasured special collections from physical harm, are we also engaging in an unconscious process of protecting a point of view? This article deals with the problems and ethical issues associated with access to special collections in the humanities. Freedom of information issues are examined in light of access restrictions to unique collections

Collective Modes of Quantum Hall Stripes  

Microsoft Academic Search

The collective modes of striped phases in a quantum Hall system are computed using the time-dependent Hartree-Fock approximation (HFA). Uniform stripe states are generically unstable to the formation of stripe crystals within the HFA. However, the interactions of modulations among different stripes is found to be remarkably weak, leading to an infinite collection of collective modes with extremely small gaps.

Collection protocol for human pancreas.  

PubMed

This dissection and sampling procedure was developed for the Network for Pancreatic Organ Donors with Diabetes (nPOD) program to standardize preparation of pancreas recovered from cadaveric organ donors. The pancreas is divided into 3 main regions (head, body, tail) followed by serial transverse sections throughout the medial to lateral axis. Alternating sections are used for fixed paraffin and fresh frozen blocks and remnant samples are minced for snap frozen sample preparations, either with or without RNAse inhibitors, for DNA, RNA, or protein isolation. The overall goal of the pancreas dissection procedure is to sample the entire pancreas while maintaining anatomical orientation. Endocrine cell heterogeneity in terms of islet composition, size, and numbers is reported for human islets compared to rodent islets. The majority of human islets from the pancreas head, body and tail regions are composed of insulin-containing ?-cells followed by lower proportions of glucagon-containing ?-cells and somatostatin-containing ?-cells. Pancreatic polypeptide-containing PP cells and ghrelin-containing epsilon cells are also present but in small numbers. In contrast, the uncinate region contains islets that are primarily composed of pancreatic polypeptide-containing PP cells. These regional islet variations arise from developmental differences. The pancreas develops from the ventral and dorsal pancreatic buds in the foregut and after rotation of the stomach and duodenum, the ventral lobe moves and fuses with the dorsal. The ventral lobe forms the posterior portion of the head including the uncinate process while the dorsal lobe gives rise to the rest of the organ. Regional pancreatic variation is also reported with the tail region having higher islet density compared to other regions and the dorsal lobe-derived components undergoing selective atrophy in type 1 diabetes. Additional organs and tissues are often recovered from the organ donors and include pancreatic lymph nodes, spleen and non-pancreatic lymph nodes. These samples are recovered with similar formats as for the pancreas with the addition of isolation of cryopreserved cells. When the proximal duodenum is included with the pancreas, duodenal mucosa may be collected for paraffin and frozen blocks and minced snap frozen preparations. PMID:22665046

Special Collections and Archives Image Database  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The Cline Library Special Collections and Archives Department (SCA) houses over 700,000 photographic images, tens of thousands of which are now available online. The library has digitized dozens of collections, including the Philip Johnston Collection with 265 images documenting life on the Navajo Reservation between 1895 and 1945; the Fronske studio collection, approximately 395 black-and-white photographs documenting over four decades of southwestern people, events, and history; and the Northern Arizona University's Photographic Archives and General Photos collection. The site offers several options for searching and browsing. For users interested only in the online collection, the Finding Guide will be extremely useful in identifying and accessing digitized materials. It is unfortunate that the images seem to be available only in smaller size, but the site provides substantial catalog information for each image and healthy descriptions of the content of and circumstances behind each collection.

Collective narcissism and its social consequences.  

PubMed

This article introduces the concept of collective narcissism--an emotional investment in an unrealistic belief about the in group's greatness--aiming to explain how feelings about an ingroup shape a tendency to aggress against outgroups. The results of 5 studies indicate that collective, but not individual, narcissism predicts intergroup aggressiveness. Collective narcissism is related to high private and low public collective self-esteem and low implicit group esteem. It predicts perceived threat from outgroups, unwillingness to forgive outgroups, preference for military aggression over and above social dominance orientation, right-wing authoritarianism, and blind patriotism. The relationship between collective narcissism and aggressiveness is mediated by perceived threat from outgroups and perceived insult to the ingroup. In sum, the results indicate that collective narcissism is a form of high but ambivalent group esteem related to sensitivity to threats to the ingroup's image and retaliatory aggression.

Collective motion in a quantum diffusive environment  

SciTech Connect

The general problem of dissipation in macroscopic large-amplitude collective motion and its relation to energy diffusion of intrinsic degrees of freedom of a nucleus is studied. By applying the cranking approach to the nuclear many-body system, a set of coupled dynamical equations for the collective classical variable and the quantum mechanical occupancies of the intrinsic nuclear states is derived in the limit of weak coupling of the collective and intrinsic subsystems. Different dynamical regimes of the intrinsic nuclear motion and its consequences on time properties of collective dissipation are discussed.

How Accurate Are Student-Collected Data?  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The purpose of this study was to teach upper elementary and high school students to monitor two estuarine creeks using an adaptation of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Adopt-A-Stream protocol. Data collected by students were then compared to data collected by a trained instructor to determine the accuracy of student-collected data for dissolved-oxygen (DO) concentration, salinity, and water temperature. Results of the study revealed that students can collect accurate data for several water-quality parameters, and these data can be presented to the community to assist in making informed decisions regarding environmental issues.

Collective Communication for Dense Sensing Environments  

Microsoft Academic Search

Intelligent Environments are currently implemented with standard WSN technologies using conventional connection- based communications. However, connection-based communica- tions may impede progress towards IE scenarios involving high mobility or massive amounts of sensor nodes. We present a novel approach based on collective transmission for item level tagging using printed organic electronics, which implements robust, collective, approximate read-out of large numbers of

Efficient Concurrent Mark-Sweep Cycle Collection  

Microsoft Academic Search

Since 1960, reference counting hasbeen apopular means ofgarbage collection. Reference counters achieve low pause times by using local data to determine liveness, but the use of this local data leaves the collector unable to collect cyclic garbage. Recent advances such as the use of coalescing and generations have dramatically improved the throughput of reference counting collectors. How- ever, the efficient

Approximating a collection of frequent sets  

Microsoft Academic Search

One of the most well-studied problems in data mining is computing the collection of frequent item sets in large transactional databases. One obstacle for the applicability of frequent-set mining is that the size of the output collection can be far too large to be carefully examined and understood by the users. Even restricting the output to the border of the
