An outline of human neuroethology.  

PubMed

Neuroethology is concerned with the analysis of neural substrates and mechanisms that underlie invariant forms of species-typical behavior. The aim of this outline is to delineate in an evolutionary perspective some specific human functional brain states and mechanisms which form the foundation of homo-typical behavior and experience. Dreaming, as one example, is considered to belong to the universals of human experience. Another example is the repertoire of human emotion and mental phenomena evoked by the electrical stimulation of the human limbic system. The expression of emotions by vocal behavior gains momentum in man and is based on certain transformations of the CNS that were fundamental for the emergence of speech. The phonemes in speech are the species-typical articulatory gestures for which a special decoding device is required. This innate mechanism may have features in common with the vocal signal decoding mechanism of subhuman primates. PMID:3350704

Scientists Outline Volcanic Ash Risks to Aviation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The ash clouds that belched out of Iceland's Eyjafjallajökull volcano last spring and dispersed over much of Europe, temporarily paralyzing aviation, were vast smoke signal warnings about the hazard that volcanic ash poses for air traffic around the world. At a 15 December news briefing at the AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, two experts with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) presented an overview of the damage airplanes can sustain from rock fragment- and mineral fragment-laden ash, an update on efforts to mitigate the hazard of ash, and an outline of further measures that are needed to address the problem. Between 1953 and 2009, there were 129 reported encounters of aircraft with volcanic ash clouds, according to a newly released USGS document cited at the briefing. The report, “Encounters of aircraft with volcanic ash clouds: A compilation of known incidents, 1953-2009,” by Marianne Guffanti, Thomas Casadevall, and Karin Budding, indicates that 26 encounters involved significant damage to the airplanes; nine of those incidents resulted in engine shutdown during flight. The report, which does not focus on the effects on airplanes of cumulative exposure to dilute ash and does not include data since 2009, indicates that “ash clouds continue to pose substantial risks to safe and efficient air travel globally.”

Verification of 2D building outlines using oblique airborne images  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Oblique airborne images are interesting not only for visualization but also for the acquisition and updating of geo-spatial vector data. This is because side views of vertical structures, such as buildings, are present in those images. In recent years, techniques for automatic verification of building outlines have been proposed. These techniques utilized color, texture and height from vertical images or range data while oblique images contain façade information that can also be used to identify buildings. This paper presents a methodology to verify 2D building outlines in a cadastral dataset by using oblique airborne images. The method searches for clues such as building edges, wall façade edges and texture. The 2D clues in images taken from different perspectives but expected to contain the same wall are transformed to 3D, combined and used for a verification of the particular wall. Unlike methods that use vertical images or LIDAR, walls are verified individually and then the results are combined for the building. We compare three methods for combining wall-based evidence. Experiments using almost 700 buildings show that best results are obtained using Adaptive Boosting where - with a bias for better identification of demolished buildings - 100% of demolished buildings are identified and 91% of existing buildings are confirmed. The other two methods are Random Trees and a variant of the Dempster-Shafer approach combined with fuzzy reasoning and they only show some minor differences to the Adaptive Boosting result. The research as presented in this paper demonstrates the potential of oblique images, but some further work has to be done, including the identification of modified buildings and the extension towards verification of 3D building models.

Research on extraction of outlines of mandible in forensic individual recognitions  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

There are fractures in local regions after extracting outlines of cone beam CT(CBCT) mandible images by conventional segmentation algorithm in the forensic test, therefore, this paper proposes a new method to avoid negative impact of fractures by the Erosion-reconstruction and Dilation- reconstruction of mathematics morphology (ERDR) algorithm to improve the accuracy of auto-extracting mandible outlines. The experiments show that the ERDR had a higher success rate (82.3%) in the processing of extracting the outlines of 300 mandible images than that of conventional segmentation method(24.0%).

Mapping a curriculum database to the USMLE Step 1 content outline.  

PubMed

Assessing the completeness of topic coverage in medical curricula is difficult to establish as no universal standard for completeness has been agreed upon. However, the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Step 1 Exam Content Outline may provide a beginning framework. This project developed a computer-based tool that matched ArizonaMed curriculum content (Tucson track) against a modified USMLE content outline. The project involved three phases: (1) the USMLE Step 1 content outline was deconstructed and translated using equivalent Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms; (2) a report was made of all MeSH terms used to identify the content in the ArizonaMed curriculum database, compared to the MeSH-modified USMLE outline, and the resulting matches are graphically expressed. The frequency with which each MeSH term appeared across the years also was reported; and (3) a retreat was held with faculty and others to ensure the MeSH-translated outline was accurate and complete. Faculty were able to visualize how content was being expressed among instructional blocks across the first two years. Results also assured faculty and students that all subjects contained in the USMLE content outline were covered in the curriculum. The success of this effort is leading to improvements in content-tracking capability for the ArizonaMed database. PMID:23088357

Women in China and Southeast Asia: a course outline and bibliography.  

PubMed

The course outlined in this article was designed for upper-level undergraduates seeking a major in Asian studies or in women's studies. The underlying premise is that it is impossible to understand any society or culture without understanding the dynamics of its gender relations and that comparative perspectives from other cultures provide a critical viewpoint from which to examine the meanings of male-female distinctions. The course focuses on China and Southeast Asia and is structured around the themes of cultural representation, economic production, and reproduction. The 13 weeks' worth of lectures and assigned readings concentrate on a limited sample of cultures (with a focus on China and Indonesia) to provide a broad overview of each topic. Supplementary bibliographies are provided for further research. The course outline includes a list of topics for seminar discussion and written assignments, a topic outline, a description of films to be shown, and a bibliography. PMID:12290824

Analysis of transmittance properties of surface plasmon modes on periodic solid/outline bowtie nanoantenna arrays  

SciTech Connect

We numerically analyze the transmittance properties of the periodic outline bowtie nanoantenna arrays and examine the nanoantenna resonance conditions compared to their solid counterparts by means of finite element method. Simulation results show that the structural parameters may affect the nanoantenna resonance conditions, such as peak resonance wavelengths, propagation properties, and charge densities at spectral points of interest. Besides, the essences of transmittance spectra of the periodic solid/outline bowtie nanoantenna arrays corresponding to their bonding mode and anti-bonding mode are investigated as well.

Effective Source-to-Source Outlining to Support Whole Program Empirical Optimization  

SciTech Connect

Although automated empirical performance optimization and tuning is well-studied for kernels and domain-specific libraries, a current research grand challenge is how to extend these methodologies and tools to significantly larger sequential and parallel applications. In this context, we present the ROSE source-to-source outliner, which addresses the problem of extracting tunable kernels out of whole programs, thereby helping to convert the challenging whole-program tuning problem into a set of more manageable kernel tuning tasks. Our outliner aims to handle large scale C/C++, Fortran and OpenMP applications. A set of program analysis and transformation techniques are utilized to enhance the portability, scalability, and interoperability of source-to-source outlining. More importantly, the generated kernels preserve performance characteristics of tuning targets and can be easily handled by other tools. Preliminary evaluations have shown that the ROSE outliner serves as a key component within an end-to-end empirical optimization system and enables a wide range of sequential and parallel optimization opportunities.

Blank outline estimation approach of aircraft part for rubber bladder forming  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Rubber bladder forming is one of sheet metal forming methods for aircraft sheet metal parts. The estimation approach of initial blank outline is a difficult task during the forming die design stage, especially the rubber bladder forming manufacturing. In accordance with the technologic characteristics of rubber bladder forming, a fast and accurate estimation approach is proposed for the initial blank outline of rubber bladder formed part based on the one-step inverse forming finite element method. The friction influential effect between the rubber bladder and sheet metal can be considered by the equivalent external force. Firstly, the designed aircraft sheet metal part is treated as the final configuration of one-step inverse analysis; then a quick reverse simulation is carried out to obtain the initial blank mesh by the one-step inverse finite element method. Finally, the blank outline from the above initial blank mesh is applied to real rubber bladder forming manufacture. The experiment and comparison results demonstrate that the proposed approach can accurate estimate the initial blank outline of aircraft sheet metal part for rubber bladder forming process.

SHERPA: an image segmentation and outline feature extraction tool for diatoms and other objects  

PubMed Central

Background Light microscopic analysis of diatom frustules is widely used both in basic and applied research, notably taxonomy, morphometrics, water quality monitoring and paleo-environmental studies. In these applications, usually large numbers of frustules need to be identified and/or measured. Although there is a need for automation in these applications, and image processing and analysis methods supporting these tasks have previously been developed, they did not become widespread in diatom analysis. While methodological reports for a wide variety of methods for image segmentation, diatom identification and feature extraction are available, no single implementation combining a subset of these into a readily applicable workflow accessible to diatomists exists. Results The newly developed tool SHERPA offers a versatile image processing workflow focused on the identification and measurement of object outlines, handling all steps from image segmentation over object identification to feature extraction, and providing interactive functions for reviewing and revising results. Special attention was given to ease of use, applicability to a broad range of data and problems, and supporting high throughput analyses with minimal manual intervention. Conclusions Tested with several diatom datasets from different sources and of various compositions, SHERPA proved its ability to successfully analyze large amounts of diatom micrographs depicting a broad range of species. SHERPA is unique in combining the following features: application of multiple segmentation methods and selection of the one giving the best result for each individual object; identification of shapes of interest based on outline matching against a template library; quality scoring and ranking of resulting outlines supporting quick quality checking; extraction of a wide range of outline shape descriptors widely used in diatom studies and elsewhere; minimizing the need for, but enabling manual quality control and corrections. Although primarily developed for analyzing images of diatom valves originating from automated microscopy, SHERPA can also be useful for other object detection, segmentation and outline-based identification problems.

A radiographic study on the utility of cranial vault outlines for positive identifications.  

PubMed

A standard method for positive identification is the use of antemortem and postmortem radiographic comparisons. The purpose of this research is to test the visual accuracy of antemortem and postmortem radiographic comparisons of cranial vault outlines and to evaluate their uniqueness using geometric morphometric methods. A sample of 106 individuals with varying levels of education and forensic case experience participated in a visual accuracy test. Of the 106 individuals, only 42% correctly assigned all of the radiographs, with accuracy rates ranging from 70 to 93% for each radiographic comparison. Vault shape was further examined using elliptic Fourier analysis, and paired t-tests were computed on the first 10 principal components accounting for 100% of the variance, which found no significant differences. The visual accuracy test and elliptic Fourier analysis shows that vault outlines may not be unique enough for positive identifications when used as a sole indicator. PMID:24745071

Development of a conceptual framework for dealing with systems which are too complex or too ill-defined to admit of precise quantitative analysis. The approach outlined is based on the premise that the key elements in human thinking are not numbers, but labels of fuzzy sets - i.e., classes of objects in which the transition from membership to nonmembership is gradual rather than abrupt. The approach in question has three main distinguishing features - namely, the use of so-called 'linguistic' variables in place of or in addition to numerical variables, the characterization of simple relations between variables by conditional fuzzy statements, and the characterization of complex relations by fuzzy algorithms.

Leiomyosarcoma of the pulmonary vein is rare and has poor prognosis. Its clinical features are nonspecific and mimic benign conditions. Early diagnosis is challenging. Most cases have been diagnosed only at autopsy or on postoperative histology specimens. Treatment is essentially palliative complete surgical excision. We outline the principles of management with the case of a 39-year-old man with leiomyosarcoma of the left pulmonary veins extending into the left atrium. Extensive investigation to achieve early diagnosis and determine extent of disease is essential. Frozen section guided adequate excision of all cardiac tumours and resection of involved lung tissue achieve local disease control. Adjuvant chemoradiotherapy has been shown to enhance survival.

Defining the lung outline from a gamma camera transmission attenuation map  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Segmentation of the lung outline from gamma camera transmission images of the thorax is useful in attenuation correction and quantitative image analysis. This paper describes and compares two threshold-based methods of segmentation. Simulated gamma camera transmission images of test objects were used to produce a knowledge base of the variation of threshold defining the lung outline with image resolution and chest wall thickness. Two segmentation techniques based on global (GT) and context-sensitive (CST) thresholds were developed and evaluated in simulated transmission images of realistic thoraces. The segmented lung volumes were compared to the true values used in the simulation. The mean distances between segmented and true lung surface were calculated. The techniques were also applied to three real human subject transmission images. The lung volumes were estimated and the segmentations were compared visually. The CST segmentation produced significantly superior segmentations than the GT technique in the simulated data. In human subjects, the GT technique underestimated volumes by 13% compared to the CST technique. It missed areas that clearly belonged to the lungs. In conclusion, both techniques segmented the lungs with reasonable accuracy and precision. The CST approach was superior, particularly in real human subject images.

Patterned postmortem ant abrasions outlining clothing and body position after death.  

PubMed

Analysis of a series of cases where post mortem lesions had been caused by ant activity demonstrated two types of specific lesions, the first associated with clothing, and the second with the position of the body of the decedent. The first type of injury consisted of areas of abraded parchmented skin with well-defined straight edges that marked the perimeter of clothing. The second lesion consisted of circular abraded injuries that outlined the junction between the body and the surface that it was resting on, essentially tracing the outline of the point of contact. In both situations ants had been unable to gain access to skin beneath elasticized clothing or parts of the body pressed against the floor or ground. This had resulted in a visual record of the edge of clothing and the position of parts of the body after death. This information may be important if clothing has been removed prior to autopsy or if lividity is minimal. These unique lesions also show that not all insect predation on bodies obscures information.

Real-time detection and data acquisition system for the left ventricular outline  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The paper describes the design and capabilities of a computer-interfaced angiocardiographic automated border recognizer for real-time detection and data acquisition regarding the left ventricular outline. The contour detection is based on a thresholding technique that uses an analog comparator to compare the video signal with a constant reference level, which can be used satisfactorily only if the brightness level is roughly constant along a ventricular border. The use of dynamic reference level is described for achieving a marked improvement by having the reference level dynamically adjusted according to local brightness levels on a line-to-line basis. Also discussed are the features of the computer interface designed and implemented for the real-time on-line storage of the obtained border coordinates. Results to date indicate that the system provides an accurate left ventricular contour even in pictures with relatively low contrast. Application of the threshold detection technique to echocardiography is briefly discussed.

Segmentation of object outlines into parts: a large-scale integrative study.  

PubMed

In this study, a large number of observers (N=201) were asked to segment a collection of outlines derived from line drawings of everyday objects (N=88). This data set was then used as a benchmark to evaluate current models of object segmentation. All of the previously proposed rules of segmentation were found supported in our results. For example, minima of curvature (i.e. locations along the contour where negative curvature takes an extreme value) were often used as segmentation points. The second point of a pair connected by a segmentation line often depended on more global shape characteristics such as proximity, collinearity, symmetry, and elongation. Based on these results, a framework is presented in which all of the previously proposed (and now empirically validated) segmentation rules or rules for part formation are integrated. PMID:16043166

Specialized Measures of Leaf Outlines and Hierarchical Perceptrons in AN Automatic Identification of Plants  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The development of an efficient image-based computer identification system for plants or other organisms is an important ambitious goal, which is still far from realization. This paper presents three new methods potentially usable for such a system: fractal-based measures of complexity of leaf outline, a heuristic algorithm for automatic detection of leaf parts — the blade and the petiole, and a hierarchical perceptron — a kind of neural network classifier. The next few sets of automatically extractable features of leaf blades, encompassed those presented and/or traditionally used, are compared in the task of plant identification using the simplest known "nearest neighbor" identification algorithm, and more realistic neural network classifiers, especially the hierarchical. We show on two real data sets that the presented techniques are really usable for automatic identification, and are worthy of further investigation.

Present status of the Bevalac and design outline of proposed medical accelerator  

SciTech Connect

The Bevalac currently supports a strong and diverse program of scientific research with beams of relativistic heavy ions in the Biomedical and Nuclear Sciences. These programs utilize ions throughout the Periodic Table that range in energy from a few MeV to 2 GeV/nucleon, including radioactive secondary beams, such as neon-19. This paper first provides a brief overview of the Bevalac, its present operational status and the accelerator improvement program, followed by a rationale for the proposed construction of a hospital-based modern synchrotron dedicated to applications in Biomedicine, including the radiotherapeutic treatment of cancer and other human disorders. An outline of the proposed design for the new machine is given, including discussion of the design philosophy, a review of major accelerator components, and the expected performance and operating characteristics.

Accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power stations of TEPCO--outline & lessons learned.  

PubMed

The severe accident that broke out at Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power stations on March 11, 2011, caused seemingly infinite damage to the daily life of residents. Serious and wide-spread contamination of the environment occurred due to radioactive materials discharged from nuclear power stations (NPSs). At the same time, many issues were highlighted concerning countermeasures to severe nuclear accidents. The accident is outlined, and lessons learned are extracted with respect to the safety of NPSs, as well as radiation protection of residents under the emergency involving the accident. The materials of the current paper are those released by governmental agencies, academic societies, interim reports of committees under the government, and others. PMID:23138450

A proposed outline and review schedule for an integrated FS-EIS  

SciTech Connect

Both CERCLA and NEPA have specific requirements for the information content, format, and review schedule of their respective Feasibility Study (FS) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) documents. The FS serves as the mechanism for the development, screening, and detailed evaluation of alternative remedial actions, while the EIS provides a discussion of significant environmental impacts and presents alternatives which would avoid or minimize adverse impacts or enhance the quality of the human environment. In some cases, the CERCLA and NEPA processes have been expressed as functionally equivalent'', and the need for NEPA questioned in instances where CERCLA compliance is required. This argument has been presented on the grounds that the CERCLA process addresses the information content needs of NEPA. However, in cases where EIS documents are required, specific information needs that are called for under NEPA are not typically addressed or readily fitted into the FS format (e.g. socioeconomic impacts). In addition, review schedules for an FS and an EIS differ; public comment opportunities and length of comment period differ. Where certain Federal agencies require that CERCLA and NEPA be integrated, there is often the guidance that NEPA be fitted into the CERCLA process. Using this guidance, an outline has been developed which integrates the information content needs of an FS and EIS, while maintaining, as closely as possible, the integrity of the FS format.

AKARI IRC Survey of the Large Magellanic Cloud: Outline of the Survey and Initial Results  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We observed an area of 10deg2 of the Large Magellanic Cloud using the Infrared Camera (IRC) on board AKARI. The observations were carried out using five imaging filters (3, 7, 11, 15, and 24?m) and adispersion prism (2-5?m, ? / ?? sim 20) equipped in the IRC. This paper describes an outline of our survey project, and presents some initial results using imaging data that detected over 5.9 × 105 near-infrared and 6.4 × 104 mid-infrared point sources. The 10 ? detection limits of our survey are about 16.5, 14.0, 12.3, 10.8, and 9.2 in Vega-magnitude at 3, 7, 11, 15, and 24?m, respectively. The 11 and 15?m data, which are unique to AKARI IRC, allow us to construct color-magnitude diagrams that are useful to identify stars with circumstellar dust. We found anew sequence in the color-magnitude diagram, which is attributed to red giants with luminosity fainter than that of the tip of the first red-giant branch. We suggest that this sequence is likely to be related to the broad emission feature of aluminum oxide at 11.5?m. The 11 and 15?m data also indicate that the ([11]-[15]) color of both oxygen-rich and carbon-rich red giants once becomes blue, and then turns red again in the course of their evolution, probably due to a change in the flux ratio of the silicate or silicon carbide emission feature at 10 or 11.3?m to the 15?m flux.

Test Outline for Flutter Analysis of Rectangular Panels in Rarefied Flow Conditions  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Jet plume impingement forces acting on large flexible space structures may precipitate dynamically unstable behavior during space flights. Typical operating conditions in space involve rarefied gas flow regimes which are intrinsically distinct from continuum gas flow and are normally modeled using the kinetic theory of gas flow. Docking and undocking operations of the Space Shuttle with the Russian Mir space laboratory represent a scenario in which the stability boundaries of solar panels may be of interest. Extensive literature review of research work on the dynamic stability of rectangular panels in rarefied gas flow conditions indicated the lack of published reports dealing with this phenomenon. A recently completed preliminary study for NASA JSC dealing with the mathematical analysis of the stability of two-degree-of-freedom elastically supported rigid panels under the effect of rarefied gas flow was reviewed. A test plan outline is prepared for the purpose of conducting a series of experiments on four rectangular rigid test articles in a vacuum chamber under the effect of continuous and pulsating Nitrogen jet plumes. The purpose of the test plan is to gather enough data related to a number of key parameters to allow the validation of the two-degree-of-freedom mathematical model. The hardware required careful design to select a very lightweight material while satisfying rigidity and frequency requirements within the constraints of the test environment. The data to be obtained from the vacuum chamber tests can be compared with the predicted behavior of the theoretical two-degree-of-freedom model. Using the data obtained in this study, further research can identify the limitations of the mathematical model. In addition modifications to the mathematical model can be made, if warranted, to accurately predict the behavior of rigid panels under rarefied gas flow regimes.

Outline structure of the human L1 cell adhesion molecule and the sites where mutations cause neurological disorders.  

PubMed Central

The L1 cell adhesion molecule has six domains homologous to members of the immunoglobulin superfamily and five homologous to fibronectin type III domains. We determined the outline structure of the L1 domains by showing that they have, at the key sites that determine conformation, residues similar to those in proteins of known structure. The outline structure describes the relative positions of residues, the major secondary structures and residue solvent accessibility. We use the outline structure to investigate the likely effects of 22 mutations that cause neurological diseases. The mutations are not randomly distributed but cluster in a few regions of the structure. They can be divided into those that act mainly by changing conformation or denaturing their domain and those that alter its surface properties. Images

Electromagnetic outline of the Solfatara-Pisciarelli hydrothermal system, Campi Flegrei (Southern Italy)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We describe the results from a combined CSAMT and MT survey carried out in the Solfatara-Pisciarelli area, located in the central part of the Campi Flegrei composite caldera, west of Naples, Southern Italy. The Solfatara-Pisciarelli area represents the most active zone within the CF area, in terms of hydrothermal manifestations and local seismicity. Since 1969, the caldera is experiencing ground deformation, seismicity and geochemical fluid changes, which are particularly evident in this area. A 1 km long, nearly W-E directed CSAMT-MT profile crossing the fumaroles field was carried out with the aim of deducting an EM model of the structural setting of the hydrothermal system in the first 3 km depth. An interpretation of the EM modelled section is given in this paper, taking advantage from already existing seismic, gravity and geochemical data in the same area. Three well distinct EM zones have been outlined. The first EM zone is a very shallow, electrically conductive body localized beneath the westernmost segment of the profile, which, within a short distance of about 100 m, dips westwards from near surface down to some hundred metres depth. Mostly accounting for the very low resistivity (1-10 ?m) and the exceedingly high values of vP/vS (>4), this shallow zone has been ascribed to a water-saturated, high-pressurized geothermal reservoir. The second EM zone, which has been localized below the west-central portion of the EM transect, appears as a composite body made of a nearly vertical plumelike structure that escapes at about 2.25 km depth from the top edge of the east side of a presumably horizontal platelike body. The plumelike structure rises up to the free surface in correspondence of the fumaroles field, whereas the platelike structure deepens at least down to the 3 km of maximum EM exploration depth. The combined interpretation of resistivity, wave velocity, gravity and geochemical data indicates the plumelike portion is likely associated with a steam/gas-saturated column and the platelike portion to a high temperature (>300°C), over-pressurized, gas-saturated reservoir. Finally, the third EM zone, which has been localized beneath the eastern half of the EM transect, from about 1.2 km down to about 3 km of depth, is also characterized by the lowest resistivity values (1-10 ?m). When jointly interpreted with seismic and gravity data, this feature can be associated to a hydrothermally mineralized, clay-rich body.

The new cell physiology: an outline, presented against its full historical background, beginning from the beginning.  

PubMed

The primary objective of this review is to present a brief outline of the new cell physiology. First introduced in 1962 under the title of the association-induction hypothesis, the theory is now confirmed in its essence, after more than thirty years of world-wide experimental testing. While minor, and even more than minor, improvements and revisions may yet be needed, the weight and scope of the confirmatory evidence have left little doubt that a comprehensive and coherent new theory of cell physiology is established. For the first time in history we have available a realistic cell physiology, awaiting to unite and to guide future biomedical research and teaching. The review also demonstrates in passing how, as well as why, the old cell physiology has fizzled so miserably. Instead of providing the guiding light for all biomedical research it has degenerated into a fairy tale of make-believe. This degradation began with a wrong theory. The situation has grown steadily worse with time by the impact of premature progressive fragmentation on something inherently indivisible; and by the universal adoption of the peer-review system which gives to those with strong vested interests in the preservation of the status quo absolute power in determining who prospers and who is cast out (see Endnote 9). It is thus hardly surprising that up to now, despite superlative chemical engineering know-how available and the lure of great financial awards, not a single drug has been designed from understanding, an understanding that will remain forever beyond reach as long as the guiding theory of the cell physiology is basically wrong. In contrast, in its brief history, and despite its minuscule list of subscribers and their endless debilitating struggle merely to stay alive (see Endnote 9), the new cell physiology has already generated one mankind-enhancing medical technology of major proportions, magnetic resonance imaging or MRI (see Ling, 1984, p. vii; 1992, p. xxv). To this day, most biomedical research scientists, teachers as well as students, still operate under the delusion that the old cell physiology, a little battered perhaps, is still basically sound. By far the greatest majority of them simply do not know enough; and it is hard for them to find a convenient source of relevant information that will help in this regard. A second purpose of the present review is to fill this need. To a few "true believers" of the old cell physiology the preservation of the status quo is of overriding importance.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS) PMID:7938224

Electromagnetic outline of the Solfatara-Pisciarelli hydrothermal system, Campi Flegrei (Southern Italy)

We describe the results from a combined controlled source audio magnetotelluric (CSAMT) and natural source magnetotelluric (MT) survey carried out in the Solfatara-Pisciarelli (S-P) area, located in the central part of the Campi Flegrei (CF) composite caldera, west of Naples, Southern Italy. The S-P area represents the most active zone within the CF caldera, in terms of hydrothermal manifestations and local seismicity. Since 1969, the CF caldera is experiencing ground deformation, seismicity and geochemical fluid changes, which are particularly evident in the S-P area. A 1 km long, nearly W-E directed CSAMT-MT profile crossing the fumarole field was carried out in the S-P area with the aim of deducting a resistivity model of the structural setting of the hydrothermal system in the first 3 km depth. An interpretation of the modelled section across the profile is given in this paper, taking advantage from already existing seismic, gravity and geochemical data in the same area. Three well distinct zones have been outlined. The first zone is a very shallow, electrically conductive body localized beneath the westernmost segment of the profile, which, within a short distance of about 100 m, dips westwards from near surface down to some hundred metres in depth. Mostly accounting for the very low resistivity (1-10 ? m) and the exceedingly high values of vP/vS (> 4), this shallow zone has been ascribed to a water-saturated, high-pressurized geothermal reservoir. The second zone, which has been localized below the west-central portion of the CSAMT-MT transect, appears as a composite body made up of a nearly vertical plumelike structure that escapes at about 2.25 km depth from the top edge of the east side of a presumably horizontal platelike body. The plumelike structure rises up to the free surface in correspondence of the fumarole field, whereas the platelike structure deepens at least down to the 3 km of maximum exploration depth. The combined interpretation of resistivity (50-100 ? m), body wave velocity ratio (vP/vS < 2.0), mass density contrast (?? < 0 g/cm3), and geochemical data indicates that the plumelike portion can likely be associated with a steam/gas-saturated column and the platelike portion with a high temperature (> 300 °C), over-pressurized, gas-saturated reservoir. Finally, the third zone, which has been localized beneath the eastern half of the transect, from about 1.2 km down to about 3 km of depth, is also characterized by very low resistivity values (1-10 ? m). Jointly interpreted with seismic (vP/vS < 1.73) and gravity (?? > 0 g/cm3) data, this last electrically conductive structure appears to be associated with a hydrothermally mineralized, clay-rich body.

Taxonomic differences in deciduous upper second molar crown outlines of Homo sapiens, Homo neanderthalensis and Homo erectus.  

PubMed

A significant number of Middle to Late Pleistocene sites contain primarily (and sometimes only) deciduous teeth (e.g., Grotta del Cavallo, Mezmaiskaya, Blombos). Not surprisingly, there has been a recent renewed interest in deciduous dental variation, especially in the context of distinguishing Homo neanderthalensis and Homo sapiens. Most studies of the deciduous dentition of fossil hominins have focused on standard metrical variation but morphological (non-metric and morphometric) variation also promises to shed light on long standing taxonomic questions. This study examines the taxonomic significance of the crown outline of the deciduous upper second molar through principal components analysis and linear discriminant analysis. We examine whether or not the crown shape of the upper deciduous second molar separates H. neanderthalensis from H. sapiens and explore whether it can be used to correctly assign individuals to taxa. It builds on previous studies by focusing on crown rather than cervical outline and by including a large sample of geographically diverse recent human populations. Our samples include 17 H. neanderthalensis, five early H. sapiens, and 12 Upper Paleolithic H. sapiens. In addition, we include two Homo erectus specimens in order to evaluate the polarity of crown shape differences observed between H. neanderthalensis and H. sapiens. Our results show that crown outline shape discriminates H. sapiens and H. neanderthalensis quite well, but does not do well at distinguishing H. erectus from H. sapiens. We conclude that the crown outline shape observed in H. sapiens is a primitive retention and that the skewed shape observed in H. neanderthalensis is a derived condition. Finally, we explore the phylogenetic implications of the results for the H. erectus molars. PMID:24703186

Exploring the Solar System Activities Outline: Hands-On Planetary Science for Formal Education K-14 and Informal Settings  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Activities by NASA scientists and teachers focus on integrating Planetary Science activities with existing Earth science, math, and language arts curriculum. The wealth of activities that highlight missions and research pertaining to the exploring the solar system allows educators to choose activities that fit a particular concept or theme within their curriculum. Most of the activities use simple, inexpensive techniques that help students understand the how and why of what scientists are learning about comets, asteroids, meteorites, moons and planets. With these NASA developed activities students experience recent mission information about our solar system such as Mars geology and the search for life using Mars meteorites and robotic data. The Johnson Space Center ARES Education team has compiled a variety of NASA solar system activities to produce an annotated thematic outline useful to classroom educators and informal educators as they teach space science. An important aspect of the outline annotation is that it highlights appropriate science content information and key science and math concepts so educators can easily identify activities that will enhance curriculum development. The outline contains URLs for the activities and NASA educator guides as well as links to NASA mission science and technology. In the informal setting educators can use solar system exploration activities to reinforce learning in association with thematic displays, planetarium programs, youth group gatherings, or community events. Within formal education at the primary level some of the activities are appropriately designed to excite interest and arouse curiosity. Middle school educators will find activities that enhance thematic science and encourage students to think about the scientific process of investigation. Some of the activities offered are appropriate for the upper levels of high school and early college in that they require students to use and analyze data.

The chief scientist reports ... The Scottish general practice shadow fund-holding project--outline of an evaluation.  

PubMed

After the agreement in January 1989 between the Minister of Health at the Scottish Office, Mr Michael Forsyth, and six groups of General Practitioners (GPs) in the Grampian and Tayside Regions of Scotland to embark on a 'shadow fund-holding' project, the Government agreed to promote an independent evaluation of the scheme. As a result, the Department of General Practice at Edinburgh University was invited to present plans to evaluate the working of and results of the scheme. Consultations with the Minister and Health Department officials, the general practices concerned, and staff of the two Health Boards involved took place during the first three months of 1990, and an outline protocol for the evaluation was approved and funded through the Chief Scientist Organisation for a three-year period from April 1990. It was agreed by all involved that piecemeal publications of results during the period of the research would be inappropriate, but with other attempts to evaluate fund-holding now being reported elsewhere in the UK, it has been agreed that an outline of issues being explored and the methods being used would be in the general interest. This paper first outlines the principal areas in which the evaluation is being focused, then describes the general methods being used, and finally comments on some of the problems encountered with the evaluation. The project should be seen as a descriptive beginning to what may well be a period of around a decade needed to appreciate the full implications of any major change in the organisation of health service provision.

The awakening of Attneave's sleeping cat: identification of everyday objects on the basis of straight-line versions of outlines.  

PubMed

Attneave (1954 Psychological Review 61 183-193) demonstrated that a line drawing of a sleeping cat can still be identified when the smoothly curved contours are replaced by straight-line segments connecting the positive maxima and negative minima of contour curvature. Using the set of line drawings by Snodgrass and Vanderwart (1980 Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory 6 174-215) we made outline versions (with known curvature values along the contour) that can still be identified and that can be used to test Attneave's demonstration more systematically and more thoroughly. In five experiments (with 444 subjects in total), we tested identifiability of straight-line versions of 184 stimuli with different selections of points to be connected (using 24 to 28 subjects per stimulus per condition). Straight-line versions connecting curvature extrema were easier to identify than those based on inflections (where curvature changes sign), and those connecting salient points (determined by 161 independent subjects) were easier than those connecting midpoints. However, identification varied considerably between objects: some were almost always identifiable and others almost never, regardless of the selection criterion, whereas identifiability depended on the specific shape attributes preserved in the straight-line version of the outline in other objects. Results are discussed in relation to Attneave's original hypotheses as well as in the light of more recent theories on shape perception and object identification. PMID:18456926

Real-time detection and data acquisition system for the left ventricular outline. Ph.D. Thesis - Stanford Univ.  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

To automate the data acquisition procedure, a real-time contour detection and data acquisition system for the left ventricular outline was developed using video techniques. The X-ray image of the contrast-filled left ventricle is stored for subsequent processing on film (cineangiogram), video tape or disc. The cineangiogram is converted into video format using a television camera. The video signal from either the TV camera, video tape or disc is the input signal to the system. The contour detection is based on a dynamic thresholding technique. Since the left ventricular outline is a smooth continuous function, for each contour side a narrow expectation window is defined in which the next borderpoint will be detected. A computer interface was designed and built for the online acquisition of the coordinates using a PDP-12 computer. The advantage of this system over other available systems is its potential for online, real-time acquisition of the left ventricular size and shape during angiocardiography.

This MIS configuration may be considered as a specific example of a more general class of photovoltaic devices: electrode-thin-film-insulator-semiconductor devices. Since the advantages of the configuration were pointed out, there has been considerable experimental interest in these photovoltaic devices. Because the previous analysis showed that the introduction of the insulator layer could produce several different but advantageous effects, this paper presents a further outline giving a comparison of these effects together with their ramifications.

The tale of spring water cysts: a historical outline of surgery for congenital pericardial diverticula and cysts.  

PubMed

Congenital pericardial diverticula and cysts are extremely uncommon lesions within the anterior mediastinum. Both lesions derive from the pericardial celom and represent different stages of a common embryogenesis. Initial reports date from the 19th century. Surgical pioneers were Otto Pickhardt, who removed a pericardial cyst at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York in 1931, and Richard Sweet, who accomplished the first resection of a pericardial diverticulum at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston in 1943. These lesions were also called spring water cysts because they usually contain watery, crystal-clear fluid. This history outlines the milestones of evolving surgical management, from the first report in 1837 up to the present time. PMID:22719140

Glycan Specificity of the Vibrio vulnificus Hemolysin Lectin Outlines Evolutionary History of Membrane Targeting by a Toxin Family.  

PubMed

Pore-forming toxins (PFTs) are a class of pathogen-secreted molecules that oligomerize to form transmembrane channels in cellular membranes. Determining the mechanism for how PFTs bind membranes is important in understanding their role in disease and for developing possible ways to block their action. Vibrio vulnificus, an aquatic pathogen responsible for severe food poisoning and septicemia in humans, secretes a PFT called V. vulnificus hemolysin (VVH), which contains a single C-terminal targeting domain predicted to resemble a ?-trefoil lectin fold. In order to understand the selectivity of the lectin for glycan motifs, we expressed the isolated VVH ?-trefoil domain and used glycan-chip screening to identify that VVH displays a preference for terminal galactosyl groups including N-acetyl-d-galactosamine and N-acetyl-d-lactosamine. The X-ray crystal structure of the VVH lectin domain solved to 2.0Å resolution reveals a heptameric ring arrangement similar to the oligomeric form of the related, but inactive, lectin from Vibrio cholerae cytolysin. Structures bound to glycerol, N-acetyl-d-galactosamine, and N-acetyl-d-lactosamine outline a common and versatile mode of recognition allowing VVH to target a wide variety of cell-surface ligands. Sequence analysis in light of our structural and functional data suggests that VVH may represent an earlier step in the evolution of Vibrio PFTs. PMID:24862282

A modified basal outlining algorithm for identifying topographic highs in gridded elevation data, part 2: Application to Springerville Volcanic Field  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Delineating boundaries of volcanic edifices from surrounding topography is often difficult, time-consuming and subjective. For large volcanic fields, with hundreds of volcanoes, developing methods to efficiently and consistently identify and isolate volcanoes from surrounding topography is of utmost importance. Advances in technology for collecting and processing digital elevation datasets have significantly improved the spatial coverage and accuracy of digital elevation models. This study evaluates the efficacy of two automated methods, a simple closed-contouring algorithm and the newly developed extension of this method, known as the Modified Basal Outlining Algorithm (MBOA), to identify and isolate volcanic cones within the Springerville Volcanic Field in southeastern Arizona. Results from the automated methods are compared to geologically mapped cone boundaries isolated using petrographic and topographic characteristics (Condit, C., 2010. Geosphere 6, 430-443, doi:10.1130/GES00531.1). The MBOA reproduces the maximum height, area and volume for the Springerville Volcanic Field to within a few percent of the values obtained by field mapping; whereas the closed-contour algorithm systematically underestimates the size of the volcanic edifices. Cone steepness, which is often considered to reflect the integrated history of eruptive and erosional processes shaping an edifice, is found to be insensitive to method used to delineate the cone boundary. For all three methods, a negative exponential model can be used to describe the resulting height-frequency distribution of cones, with small differences in the estimated scaling parameters. Results from this study show the MBOA is an effective automated method for identifying and isolating volcanic edifices within a large volcanic field and an improvement over closed-contour algorithms.

The HOPE (Helping to Outline Paediatric Eating Disorders) Project: development and debut of a paediatric clinical eating disorder registry  

PubMed Central

Background The HOPE (Helping to Outline Paediatric Eating Disorders) Project is an ongoing registry study made up of a sequential cross-sectional sample prospectively recruited over 17 years, and is designed to answer empirical questions about paediatric eating disorders. This paper introduces the HOPE Project, describes the registry sample to-date, and discusses future directions and challenges and accomplishments. The project and clinical service were established in a tertiary academic hospital in Western Australia in 1996 with a service development grant. Research processes were inbuilt into the initial protocols and data collection was maintained in the following years. Recognisable progress with the research agenda accelerated only when dedicated research resources were obtained. The registry sample consists of consecutive children and adolescents assessed at the eating disorder program from 1996 onward. Standardised multidisciplinary data collected from family intake interview, parent and child clinical interviews, medical review, parent, child and teacher psychometric assessments, and inpatient admission records populate the HOPE Project database. Results The registry database to-date contains 941 assessments, of whom 685 met DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for an eating disorder at admission. The majority of the sample were females (91%) from metropolitan Perth (83%). The cases with eating disorders consist of eating disorders not otherwise specified (68%), anorexia nervosa (25%) and bulimia nervosa (7%). Among those with eating disorders, a history of weight loss since illness onset was almost universal (96%) with fear of weight gain (71%) common, and the median duration of illness was 8 months. Conclusions Over the next five years and more, we expect that the HOPE Project will make a strong scientific contribution to paediatric eating disorders research and will have important real-world applications to clinical practice and policy as the research unfolds.

Eating one's words: Part III. Mentalisation-based psychotherapy for anorexia nervosa--an outline for a treatment and training manual.  

PubMed

This paper presents a new outline for psychotherapy with persons with anorexia nervosa. 'Model on mentalisation' is the intellectual and empirical framework for this contribution. Mentalisation is defined as the ability to understand feelings, cognitions, intentions and meaning in oneself and in others. The capacity to understand oneself and others is a key determinant of self-organisation and affect regulation, and is acquired in early attachment relationships. Impaired mentalisation is documented and described as a central psychopathological feature in anorexia nervosa. Psychotherapeutic enterprise with individuals with compromised mentalising capacity should be an activity that is specifically focused on the rehabilitation of this function, with special emphasis on how the body is representing mental states. The paper describes psychotherapeutic goals, stances and techniques. It is intended that this outline will be further developed into manuals as a basis for therapy, training and research.

A Comparison and Outline of Tolerances in Performing Optical Time Division Multiplexing using Electro-Absorption Modulators  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As high bandwidth applications continue to emerge, investigation in technologies that will increase transmission capacity become necessary. Of these technologies, Optical Time Division Multiplexing (OTDM) has been presented as a possible solution, supporting a next generation bit rate of 160 Gbit/s. To perform the demultiplexing task, the use of tandem electro-absorption modulators (EAMs) has been widely studied, and due to its benefits was chosen as the topology of this thesis. To create an effective model of an OTDM system, the vector based mathematical simulation tool MatLab is used. Care was taken to create an accurate representation of an OTDM system, including: the development of a realistic pulse shape, the development of a true pseudo-random bit sequence in all transmitted channels, the optimization of the gating function, and the representation of system penalty. While posing impressive bit rates, various sources of system performance degradation pose issues in an OTDM system, owning to its ultra-narrow pulse widths. The presence of dispersion, timing jitter, polarization mode dispersion, and nonlinear effects, can sufficiently degrade the quality of the received data. This thesis gives a clear guideline to the tolerance an OTDM system exhibits to each of the aforementioned sources of system penalty. The theory behind each impairment is thoroughly discussed and simulated using MatLab. From the simulated results, a finite degree of sensitivity to each source of system penalty is realized. These contributions are of particular importance when attempting to implement an OTDM system in either the laboratory, or the field.

Iran outlines oil productive capacity  

SciTech Connect

National Iranian Oil Co. (NIOC) tested production limits last month to prove a claim of 4 million bd capacity made at September's meeting of the organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Onshore fields account for 3.6 million bd of the total, with offshore fields providing the rest. NIOC plans to expand total capacity to 4.5 million bd by April 1993, consisting of 4 million b/d onshore and 500,000 b/d offshore. Middle East Economic Survey says questions remain about completion dates for gas injection, drilling, and offshore projects, but expansion targets are attainable within the scheduled time. NIOC said some slippage may be unavoidable, but it is confident the objective will be reached by third quarter 1993 at the latest. More than 60 rigs are working or about to be taken under contract to boost development drilling in onshore fields and provide gas injection in some. NIOC has spent $3.2 billion in foreign exchange on the drilling program in the last 2 1/2 years.

A Comparison of the Glasgow Coma Scale Score with Full Outline of Unresponsiveness Scale to Predict Patients' Traumatic Brain Injury Outcomes in Intensive Care Units  

PubMed Central

Background. Neurological assessment is an essential element of early warning scores used to recognize critically ill patients. We compared the performance of the Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) with Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) scale as an alternative method in the identification of clinically relevant outcomes in traumatic brain injury. Objective. The purpose of this study was to compare the performance of GCS with FOUR scale. Methods. For this study 104 patients with brain injury were recruited from the ICU of Taleghani Hospital, a major teaching hospital in Kermanshah in the western part of Iran. Data was collected concurrently from the ICU admissions by three well-educated nurses and then checked for accuracy by the researcher. Patients were followed up until two weeks or hospital discharge to record their survival status. As a final point expected risk of mortality was calculated using the original formulas for each scale. Results. The mean age of 104 participants was 41.38 ± 18.22 (rang 17 to 86 years) mostly (81 patients 77.9%) males. The FOUR scale has a better prediction for death than GCS. Conclusion. It appears that FOUR scale had better predictive power for mortality and may be a suitable alternative or complementary tool for GCS.

The best way possible! A fieldwork study outlining expectations and needs for nursing of patients in endoscopy facilities for short-term stay.  

PubMed

This paper is a descriptive study of nursing in facilities for short-term stay, aiming to outline the expectations and needs for nursing of patients undergoing gastroscopy in outpatient endoscopy clinics. Existing research finds it important to meet patients' expectations and needs for help to get through a procedure in the best and safest way possible. Despite recent years' focus on patient expectations, little attention has been paid to understanding the patients' distinct expectations and needs for nursing in the context of facilities for short-term stay. A fieldwork study influenced by practical ethnographic principles was performed in high-technology endoscopy outpatient clinics during 2008 - 2010. Data were collected using triangulation of participant observation for 12 weeks including participant reports and semi-structured interviews with eight patients and four nurses. The expectations and needs for nursing of patients undergoing gastroscopy were related to two main areas, summarized by the categories: 'Nervousness and anxiety' and 'Maintaining control'. The former concerned how patients managed their nervousness and anxiety and was described differently in terms of 'Getting it over with', 'The meaning of words' and 'Taking precautions'. The latter 'Maintaining control' concerned how patients in different ways managed to maintain control over their situation and was described in terms of 'Being informed', 'Others are in the same "boat"' and 'Being proactive'. The study concludes that nervousness and anxiety are expressed differently in patients undergoing gastroscopy and that patients have individual ways of claiming their right to elements of control over the situation and the course of gastroscopy. In order for nursing in endoscopy settings to be tailored to the individual patient, it must be adapted to the individual patient's ways of managing nervousness and anxiety as well as ways of claiming control.

Outline of a philosophy of anticipation

In the first part of the paper, a metaphysics of anticipation is presented through the ordering of the different levels of anticipation in the natural world. The interconnections between those different levels are highlighted. In the second part, an attempt is first made to delineate the various mathematically expressible forms of anticipation, but then, the limits of mathematical efforts to express anticipatory phenomena are shown; these limits arise from the difficulty in quantifying the imagination, creativity, improvisation, cultural synchronicity, and autopoesis, all of which are relevant to anticipation. And so in the third part, the paper concludes with a preliminary classification of the different computational and non-computational meanings of our concept of anticipation.

Outlines of a concept of industrial psychiatry  

PubMed Central

The author sees the task of industrial psychiatry as one of preventing emotional maladjustment and the more serious mental disorders in the industrial population, and of treating early cases of emotional disorders. He classifies the preventive functions as: giving “emotional” first-aid, holding psychiatric consultations, and training in mental health. The function of the psychiatrist is to concentrate on patients who are too difficult to be handled by the industrial medical officer, his nurse, or the psychologist, and to train management and medical staff to collaborate in preventive mental health activity. Some of the techniques used by the psychiatrist are described, and the important problem of how to handle confidential material is discussed. The author points out that the selection of medical staff for such work is extremely important, and that choosing the right type of psychiatrist is of primary importance for the whole organization.

This paper reports that the U.S.S.R.'s Gazprom Konstern has drawn up a comprehensive, long term plan for the Soviet natural gas industry, Eastern Bloc Energy (EBE) reports. EBE is a publication of Eastern Bloc Research Ltd., Newton Kyme, England. Gazprom, responsible for more than 90% of Soviet gas production, predicts Soviet gas production will continue to increase beyond 2030 and expects the resource base ultimately will total more than 330 trillion cu m, EBE the. Soviet Central Asia will begin to decline as a major source of gas during the early years of the next century, but western Siberian production will continue to grow after 2030. The continental shelf, mainly the Barents Sea, will eventually become a very large supplier of gas, EBE reported.

Kanto Asperity Project -Background and Outline-  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Kanto region (Tokyo and the surrounding area) is one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world and has been devastated by repeated great earthquakes. This region is located at an island arc-island arc collision zone and a zone where Pacific and Philippine Sea plates are subducting. Great earthquakes along the Sagami trough, where the Philippine Sea slab is subducting, have repeatedly occurred. The 1703 Genroku and 1923 (Taisho) Kanto earthquakes caused severe damages in the metropolitan area. The recurrence periods of Taisho- and Genroku-type earthquakes are about 200-400 and 2000 years, respectively (e.g., Earthquake Research Committee, 2004). Many studies on the asperities along the Sagami trough have been carried out. Two asperities of the 1923 Kanto earthquake are located around the western part of Kanagawa prefecture (the base of the Izu peninsula) and around the Miura peninsula. An additional asperity of the 1703 Genroku earthquake is located the southern part of the Boso Peninsula. Slow slip events have also repeatedly occurred in an area adjacent to the asperities of the great earthquakes, off Boso peninsula (e.g., Ozawa et al 2007). In the cases of Nankai and Cascadia, slow slip events occur at deeper levels than the asperities, in a transition zone between the asperity and a region of steady slip. In contrast, slow slip events in the Kanto region have occurred at relatively shallow depths, at the same level as the asperity, raising the possibiltiy of friction controlled by different conditions (materials, fluid, or surface roughness) to those (temperature and pressure) encountered at Nankai and Cascadia. Deep seismic profiling have been carried out since the Special Project for Earthquake Disaster Mitigation in Urban areas (DaiDaiToku) (2002-2006). These profiling successfully presented a new image of the upper surface of the Philippine Sea slab (Sato et al. 2005), which is shallower than the previous models. This profiling also presents that amplitudes of reflections are different between in the asperity and non-asperity regions, suggesting the different characteristics on the plate boundaries in these regions. The Kanto Asperity Project (KAP) have been submitted to IODP to know the geometry, physical properties, and tectonics along the Sagami trough, which are considered to control the occurrence of the great earthquakes and slow slips. The KAP consists of three research components. The first component is shallow drilling, coring, and logging at several sites distributed in wide area for the combined purposes of geological characterization (sediments, basements, and faults), tectonic reconstruction (collision, accretion, and rotation), earthquake history inferred from sediments, and in situ stress measurements. The second is long-term geophysical monitoring with wide area network, focusing on understanding the geometrical and geophysical situation of the system of asperities and non-asperities. The third one is coring and logging plate boundaries in asperity and slow slip regions to measure physical properties. Information obtained in this plan may be effective to modify simulations of earthquake cycles, strong motion, and tsunamis for seismic hazard assessment.

Outline of the ELI-Beamlines facility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

ELI-Beamlines will be a high-energy, repetition-rate laser pillar of the ELI (Extreme Light Infrastructure) project. It will be an international facility for both academic and applied research, slated to provide user capability since the beginning of 2016. The main objective of the ELI-Beamlines Project is delivery of ultra-short high-energy pulses for the generation and applications of high-brightness X-ray sources and accelerated particles. The laser system will be delivering pulses with length ranging between 10 and 150 fs and will provide high-energy petawatt and 10-PW peak powers. For high-field physics experiments it will be able to provide focused intensities attaining 1024 Wcm-2, while this value can be upgraded in a later phase without the need to upgrade the building infrastructure. In this paper we describe the overall conception and layout of the designed ELI-Beamlines facility, and review some essential elements of the design.

A comparison of the diagnostic power of the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness scale and the Glasgow coma scale in the discharge outcome prediction of patients with traumatic brain injury admitted to the intensive care unit  

PubMed Central

Background and Aim: This study aimed to determine whether the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) score is an accurate predictorof discharge outcome in traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients and to compare its performanceto Glasgow coma scale (GCS). Materials and Methods: Thisis diagnostic study conducted prospectively on 53 TBI patients admitted to ICU of education hospitals of Medical Science University of Mazandaran during February 2013 to June 2013. Data collection was done with a checklist including biographic, clinical information and outcome. The FOUR score and GCS were determined by the researcher in the first 24 hours. Outcomes considered as in-hospital mortality and poor neurologic outcome (Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS) 1-3) in discharge time from the hospital. Results: In terms of predictive power for in-hospital mortality, the area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was 0/92 (95% CI. 0/81-0/97) for FOUR score and 0/96 (95% CI. 0/87-0/99) for GCS. In terms of predictive power of poor neurologic outcome, the area under the ROC curve was 0/95 (95% CI. 0/86-0/99) for FOUR score and 0/90 (95% CI.0/79-0/96) for GCS as evidenced by GOS 1-3. The cut-off of 6 showed sensitivity and specificity of total four score predicting poor outcome at 0/86 and 0/87 while the cut-off of 4 showed the value of in hospital mortality at 0/90 and 0/90. The total GCS score showed sensitivity and specificity 0/100 and 0/61 at cut-off 7 in predicting poor outcome while in predicting mortality at cut-off of 4 this range was 0/100 and 0/92. Conclusion: The FOUR score is an accurate predictor of discharge outcome in TBI patients. Thus, researchers recommend for therapeutic Schematizationto use in neurosurgical patients at admission day.

GOSAT-2:the outline of the mission and satellite system  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) was launched on January 23, 2009, to monitor the global column concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) from space. Over five years operational periods, the useful scientific data sets and interesting articles for carbon source/sink evaluation were produced and published, and on 23rd of January of this year the nominal operation period completed and moved to addional operation phase. Currently, the importance of space-based carbon observation has been approved and desired the continuous observation in toward. OCO-2, TanSat, MicroCarb and CarbonSat will be planned to launch in up-coming years and follow to observe the global carbon distribution. Through the GOSAT operation, we learned a lot of things on the instrument, software, processing algorithm and operation; what should be improved in the following mission. To elucidate the carbon cycle more precisely, our experiences regarding observation performances as well as hardware design were summarized and reflected on the mission design of GOSAT-2 and the mission requirements on GOSAT-2 which is for a good understanding of CO2 and CH4 sources and sinks and the underlying carbon cycle was defined. Based on the mission requirements and experiences regarding observation performances and hardware design, the feasibility studies such as sampling strategy, band expansion, mapping capability were carried out to meet the mission requirements. And the hardware system requirements were defined and the design was started. In this presentation, the mission requirements and current status and the details of the system design of GOSAT-2 will be presented.

Syncrude Canada Ltd. outlines its feeder breaker testing and development  

SciTech Connect

Syncrude Canada Ltd. is the operating company for a consortium of industry and government participants that produce synthetic crude oil from their leases in the Athabasca Oil Sands. Production from the $2.3 billion (1978) integrated mining, extraction, and bitumen upgrading and utility complex started in September 1978. Production is currently about 6.4 Mm/sup 3//a (40 million bbl per year) of high quality synthetic crude oil. This is done by upgrading the extracted bitumen from the oil sands mined. Plans are to increase the production to 8 Mm/sup 3//a (50 million bbl per year) by 1989. At that time, the mining operation will be required to deliver 100 Mt/a (110 million stpy) of oil sand (ore) to the extraction plants, and handle quantities of waste ranging from 50 to 75 Mt/a (55 to 83 million stpy). The Syncrude plant is located at Mildred Lake, 40 km (25 miles) north of Fort McMurray and 480 km (300 miles) north of Edmonton, Alberta. Climate, particularly winter, is therefore a major factor affecting the design and operation of the the Syncrude production facilities.

Hanford Tank Farm interim storage phase probabilistic risk assessment outline  

SciTech Connect

This report is the second in a series examining the risks for the high level waste (HLW) storage facilities at the Hanford Site. The first phase of the HTF PSA effort addressed risks from Tank 101-SY, only. Tank 101-SY was selected as the initial focus of the PSA because of its propensity to periodically release (burp) a mixture of flammable and toxic gases. This report expands the evaluation of Tank 101-SY to all 177 storage tanks. The 177 tanks are arranged into 18 farms and contain the HLW accumulated over 50 years of weapons material production work. A centerpiece of the remediation activity is the effort toward developing a permanent method for disposing of the HLW tank`s highly radioactive contents. One approach to risk based prioritization is to perform a PSA for the whole HLW tank farm complex to identify the highest risk tanks so that remediation planners and managers will have a more rational basis for allocating limited funds to the more critical areas. Section 3 presents the qualitative identification of generic initiators that could threaten to produce releases from one or more tanks. In section 4 a detailed accident sequence model is developed for each initiating event group. Section 5 defines the release categories to which the scenarios are assigned in the accident sequence model and presents analyses of the airborne and liquid source terms resulting from different release scenarios. The conditional consequences measured by worker or public exposure to radionuclides or hazardous chemicals and economic costs of cleanup and repair are analyzed in section 6. The results from all the previous sections are integrated to produce unconditional risk curves in frequency of exceedance format.

Outline for development of cost-based state severance taxes  

SciTech Connect

States with abundant resources are being tempted to use severance taxes to acquire part of the windfall created from production of resources. This temptation should be resisted in favor of carefully constructed cost-based severance taxes. Taxation of natural resources should raise funds sufficient to cover the present and future, and direct and indirect, costs created by extraction and production of natural resources. A state should analyze its expenses to determine the bases for setting a severance-tax level. An essential element of recompensed costs is an amount for asset replacement to repay the state for its permanent loss resulting from resource extraction. It is necessary in order for the state to adequately provide future economic opportunities and viability for its citizens. In determining severance tax levels, states should not forget the revenues created by other direct and indirect taxes on the extractive industry. Resource states should also consider adverse consequences of a severance tax on the extractive industry. Resource states must bolster their severance taxes against legal attack by basing the taxes on data supported by research and analysis. 105 references.

Outline of a novel architecture for cortical computation  

PubMed Central

In this paper a novel architecture for cortical computation has been proposed. This architecture is composed of computing paths consisting of neurons and synapses. These paths have been decomposed into lateral, longitudinal and vertical components. Cortical computation has then been decomposed into lateral computation (LaC), longitudinal computation (LoC) and vertical computation (VeC). It has been shown that various loop structures in the cortical circuit play important roles in cortical computation as well as in memory storage and retrieval, keeping in conformity with the molecular basis of short and long term memory. A new learning scheme for the brain has also been proposed and how it is implemented within the proposed architecture has been explained. A few mathematical results about the architecture have been proposed, some of which are without proof.

Outline of a fast hardware implementation of Winograd's DFT algorithm  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The main characteristics of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) algorithm considered by Winograd (1976) is a significant reduction in the number of multiplications. Its primary disadvantage is a higher structural complexity. It is, therefore, difficult to translate the reduced number of multiplications into faster execution of the DFT by means of a software implementation of the algorithm. For this reason, a hardware implementation is considered in the current study, taking into account a design based on the algorithm prescription discussed by Zohar (1979). The hardware implementation of a FORTRAN subroutine is proposed, giving attention to a pipelining scheme in which 5 consecutive data batches are being operated on simultaneously, each batch undergoing one of 5 processing phases.

Outline of the report on cardiovascular disease in China, 2010.  

PubMed

Major and profound changes have taken place in China over the past 30 years. Rapid socioeconomic progress has exerted a great impact on lifestyle, ranging from food, clothing, working and living conditions, and means of transportation to leisure activities and entertainment. At the same time, new health problems have emerged, and health services are facing new challenges. Presently, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are among the top health problems of the Chinese people, and pose a serious challenge to all engaged in the prevention and control of these diseases. An epidemic of CVD in China is emerging as a result of lifestyle changes, urbanization and longevity. Both national policy decision-making and medical practice urgently need an authoritative report which comprehensively reflects the trends in the epidemic of CVD and current preventive measures. Since 2005, guided by the Bureau of Disease Prevention of the Ministry of Health of the People's Republic of China and the National Center for Cardiovascular Diseases of China, nationwide experts in the fields of epidemiology, clinical medicine and health economics in the realms of CVD, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes and chronic kidney disease, completed the Report on Cardiovascular Diseases in China every year. The report aims to provide a timely review of the trend of the epidemic and to assess the progress of prevention and control of CVD. In addition, as the report is authoritative, representative and readable, it will become an information platform in the CVD field and an important reference book for government, academic institutes, medical organizations and clinical physicians. This publication is expected to play a positive role in the prevention and control of CVD in China. We present an abstract from the Report on Cardiovascular Diseases in China (2010), including trends in CVD, morbidity and mortality of major CVDs, up-to-date assessment of risk factors, as well as health resources for CVD, and a profile of medical expenditure, with the aim of providing evidence for decision-making in CVD prevention and control programs in China, and of delivering the most authoritative information on CVD prevention and control for all citizens.

The origin of continental crust: Outlines of a general theory  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The lower continental crust, formerly very poorly understood, has recently been investigated by various geological and geophysical techniques that are beginning to yield a generally agreed on though still vague model (Lowman, 1984). As typified by at least some exposed high grade terranes, such as the Scottish Scourian complex, the lower crust in areas not affected by Phanerozoic orogeny or crustal extension appears to consist of gently dipping granulite gneisses of intermediate bulk composition, formed from partly or largely supracrustal precursors. This model, to the degree that it is correct, has important implications for early crustal genesis and the origin of continental crust in general. Most important, it implies that except for areas of major overthrusting (which may of course be considerable) normal superposition relations prevail, and that since even the oldest exposed rocks are underlain by tens of kilometers of sial, true primordial crust may still survive in the lower crustal levels (of. Phinney, 1981).

Overview and outline of Mass-Driver Two  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An overview of the Princeton-M.I.T. second mass-driver is presented. Mass-Driver Two is a 13.1 cm caliber system which uses a two coil superconducting bucket and a two-phase in quadrature drive system. Discrete drive coils are individually energized with timing supplied by position-sensing optical detectors. Intermediate energy storage is provided by sector capacitors which are recharged every half cycle by an external power source. A vacuum environment is provided for the superconducting bucket by a 4 inch ID glass pipe with the drive coils surrounding it. Magnetic flight is generated by eddy current repulsion from six copper guide strips lining the glass pipe. The length is 2.5 meters equally divided between acceleration and deceleration sections. Nominal acceleration is 5000 m/sec per sec giving a maximum bucket velocity of 112 m/sec. Regenerative braking is used to decelerate the bucket. Current densities of 25 sq cm are achieved in the superconducting bucket coils and are maintained by a cryogenic service station.

Recent surveys outline new potential for offshore Mozambique  

SciTech Connect

Two independent seismic surveys recently completed off Mozambique provide a comprehensive coverage of the shelf area that is adequate for preliminary delineation of prospective areas. Over most of the shelf, the structural relief in the sediments is gentle and structural traps are identified in areas of drape or differential compaction and locally where light faulting can be seen affecting the sedimentary section. On the southern and south-central parts of the shelf, some very well-defined grabens appear to be a direct continuation of structural units previously identified onshore. The recent high-quality seismic data have demonstrated that most of the earlier exploration wells were not positioned in areas of optimum trapping and sourcing conditions.

Making the Case for Jefferson Lab  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This chapter is a personal account of the initial planning and competition for a new laboratory, which eventually became known as the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, with the official nickname "Jefferson Lab." The period covered starts as far back as 1964, with the introduction of quarks, and extends up to the late 1980s after the initial team was assembled, the superconducting design was in place, and construction was well underway. I describe some of the major experiments that were proposed to justify the laboratory, reflect on the present status of those initially proposed experiments, and very briefly outline some of the new ideas that emerged after the laboratory was constructed. The science is presented in a simple manner intended for a lay audience, with some of the ideas illustrated by cartoons that were often used in popular lectures given during this period.

NASA, along with its prime Orion contractor and its subcontractor s are adapting an avionics system paradigm borrowed from the manned commercial aircraft industry for use in manned space flight systems. Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) techniques have been proven as a robust avionics solution for manned commercial aircraft (B737/777/787, MD 10/90). This presentation will outline current approaches to adapt IMA, along with its heritage FSW V&V paradigms, into NASA's manned space flight program for Orion. NASA's Kedalion engineering analysis lab is on the forefront of validating many of these contemporary IMA based techniques. Kedalion has already validated many of the proposed Orion FSW V&V paradigms using Orion's precursory Flight Test Article (FTA) Pad Abort 1 (PA-1) program. The Kedalion lab will evolve its architectures, tools, and techniques in parallel with the evolving Orion program.

An outline of the life and work of Tony Hilton Royle Skyrme (1922-1987)  

SciTech Connect

Tony Hilton Royle Skyrme was born on 5 December 1922 at 7 Blessington Road, Lewisham (Kent), London. Tony's maternal grandfather was Herbert William Thomson Roberts, a tidal computer for the Admiralty by profession. The inclusion of Lord Kelvin's baptismal name (William Thomson) among his forenames reflects the professional contact which Tony's great-grandfather had with Lord Kelvin and the high regard in which he held the latter. This great-grandfather of Tony's on the maternal side was Edward Roberts. He was appointed Secretary to the Tidal Committee of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, being made responsible later for the construction of the first Tidal Predicter, which had been designed by Lord Kelvin. He played a large part in the design and construction of the Universal Tide-predicting Machines used by the Indian and Colonial Government and by the Admiralty Hydrographic Office. It was his house which held the Tidal Predicter, the first model of the machine, which made such a strong impression on the young Tony and influenced so greatly the development of his later ideas, as Tony himself recounted in a lecture given at a Workshop on Skyrmions in 1984.

Outline of recent research on ice-volcano interactions in Southern Chile  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Glaciers in Southern Chile (34 - 46°S) are mainly located on top of active volcanoes. The majority of these glaciers have only recently been inventoried and their areal and frontal changes are only partially documented. Most of these glaciers have receded and shrank in recent decades. The main driving factor explaining the glacier retreat is thought to be atmospheric changes, however in some cases the cause is the impact of the volcanic activity. In order to understand better the different driving mechanisms and responses, several surveying campaigns have been conducted to a selected group of ice-capped volcanoes, including the use of an airborne Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system, equipped with visible and thermal infrared cameras, and the use of a helicopter borne radio echo sounding system (Radar). The LIDAR system measured the surface topography of the glaciers at sub metric accuracy, allowing the orthorectification of the simultaneously collected aerial photographs. The radar system has been able to penetrate the total thickness of the ice, mapping the bedrock topography as well as the bed power reflection. The 25 active ice-capped volcanoes analyzed in this work have a total ice area in year 2011 of 500 km2, and despite local differences, generalized area shrinkage and frontal retreats were detected with a total ice area lost of almost 200 km2 in the last 35 years. Among these volcanoes, most of the surveys have been conducted at Volcanes Palomo (34.61°S/70.29°W), Hudson (45.90°S/72.97°W) and Villarrica (39.41°S/71.93°W), where digital elevation models (DEMs) were generated as well as high resolution visible and thermal infrared mosaics. The DEMs comparisons have allowed the estimation of mean ice thinning rates up to 2 m/yr at the glacier ablation areas. A maximum ice thickness of 190 m was measured at Volcán Villarrica, where a total volume of water equivalent of 1.45 km3 was estimated. The strongest volcanic activity impact on glaciers was detected at Volcán Hudson, where a LIDAR survey performed before and after the most recent eruption of October 2011, yielded a maximum vertical ice loss of 74 m inside the caldera surrounding newly borne parasitic volcanic cones. This area suffered a widespread ice destruction producing several lahar pulses, generating a strong ice thinning at the main outflow tongue of Glaciar Huemules, the ice body infilling the caldera. These strong glacier changes are superimposed on a general atmospheric temperature increase and precipitation reduction detected at low altitude meteorological stations. However, very little is known about atmospheric changes at the altitude where glaciers are located, due to the lack of automatic weather stations. In spite of this problem, a couple of stations located on ice-capped volcanoes have revealed strong warming events not registered at low altitudes, indicating that atmospheric warming may be even stronger near the glacier equilibrium line altitudes. Much more research is needed to better understand the complex ice-volcano-atmosphere interactions in this region.

A comprehensive validation toolbox for regional ocean models - Outline, implementation and application to the Baltic Sea  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The systematic and objective comparison between output from a numerical ocean model and a set of observations, called validation in the context of this presentation, is a beneficial activity at several stages, starting from early steps in model development and ending at the quality control of model based products delivered to customers. Even though the importance of this kind of validation work is widely acknowledged it is often not among the most popular tasks in ocean modelling. In order to ease the validation work a comprehensive toolbox has been developed in the framework of the MyOcean-2 project. The objective of this toolbox is to carry out validation integrating different data sources, e.g. time-series at stations, vertical profiles, surface fields or along track satellite data, with one single program call. The validation toolbox, implemented in MATLAB, features all parts of the validation process - ranging from read-in procedures of datasets to the graphical and numerical output of statistical metrics of the comparison. The basic idea is to have only one well-defined validation schedule for all applications, in which all parts of the validation process are executed. Each part, e.g. read-in procedures, forms a module in which all available functions of this particular part are collected. The interface between the functions, the module and the validation schedule is highly standardized. Functions of a module are set up for certain validation tasks, new functions can be implemented into the appropriate module without affecting the functionality of the toolbox. The functions are assigned for each validation task in user specific settings, which are externally stored in so-called namelists and gather all information of the used datasets as well as paths and metadata. In the framework of the MyOcean-2 project the toolbox is frequently used to validate the forecast products of the Baltic Sea Marine Forecasting Centre. Hereby the performance of any new product version is compared with the previous version. Although, the toolbox is mainly tested for the Baltic Sea yet, it can easily be adapted to different datasets and parameters, regardless of the geographic region. In this presentation the usability of the toolbox is demonstrated along with several results of the validation process.

The FIGARO II experiment - A general outline of the mission and the principal scientific results  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The FIGARO II (French Italian Gamma-Ray Observatory) experiment has been launched successfully three times: in July 1986 from Milo (Trapani), in November 1988 from Charleville (Australia) and in July 1990 again from Milo. In the first flight the observational program was limited to the Crab pulsar PSR0531 + 21 only because of a telemetry failure: the high sensitivity of FIGARO II allowed an accurate study of the pulse shape as well as a phase-resolved spectroscopy. It was also possible to evaluate the dispersion measure of the Crab pulsar at the flight date from the time delay between gamma-ray and radio pulses. The major results of the second flight were a stringent upper limit to the low-energy gamma-ray flux from PSR 0833-45 (Vela pulsar) - well below the detection claimed by the UCR group - and the observation of a strong emission in the 0.511 MeV annihilation line from the inner region of our Galaxy. The data acquired in the third flight are still under analysis, but preliminary results suggest changes in the shape of the pulse profile.

Development of Hydrologic Characterization Methodology of Faults: Outline of the Project in Berkeley, California  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization of Japan (NUMO), after volunteering municipalities arise, will start a three-staged program for selecting a HLW and TRU waste repository site. It is recognized from experiences from various site characterization programs in the world that the hydrologic property of faults is one of the most important parameters in the early stage of the program. It is expected that numerous faults of interest exist in an investigation area of several tens of square kilometers. It is, however, impossible to characterize all these faults in a limited time and budget. This raises problems in the repository designing and safety assessment that we may have to accept unrealistic or over conservative results by using a single model or parameters for all the faults in the area. We, therefore, seek to develop an efficient and practical methodology to characterize hydrologic property of faults. This project is a five year program started in 2007, and comprises the basic methodology development through literature study and its verification through field investigations. The literature study tries to classify faults by correlating their geological features with hydraulic property, to search for the most efficient technology for fault characterization, and to develop a work flow diagram. The field investigation starts from selection of a site and fault(s), followed by existing site data analyses, surface geophysics, geological mapping, trenching, water sampling, a series of borehole investigations and modeling/analyses. Based on the results of the field investigations, we plan to develop a systematic hydrologic characterization methodology of faults. A classification method that correlates combinations of geological features (rock type, fault displacement, fault type, position in a fault zone, fracture zone width, damage zone width) with widths of high permeability zones around a fault zone was proposed through a survey on available documents of the site characterization programs. The field investigation started in 2008, by selecting the Wildcat Fault that cut across the Laurence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) site as the target. Analyses on site-specific data, surface geophysics, geological mapping and trenching have confirmed the approximate location and characteristics of the fault (see Session H48, Onishi, et al). The plan for the remaining years includes borehole investigations at LBNL, and another series of investigations in the northern part of the Wildcat Fault.

Outline of a small unmanned aerial vehicle (Ant-Plane) designed for Antarctic research  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As part of the Ant-Plane project for summertime scientific research and logistics in the coastal region of Antarctica, we developed six types of small autonomous UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles, similar to drones; we term these vehicles ‘Ant-Planes’) based on four types of airframe. In test flights, Ant-Plane 2 cruised within 20 m accuracy along a straight course during calm weather at Sakurajima Volcano, Kyushu, Japan. During a period of strong winds (22 m/s) at Mt. Chokai, Akita Prefecture, Japan, Ant-Plane 2 maintained its course during a straight flight but deviated when turning leeward. An onboard 3-axis magneto-resistant magnetometer (400 g) recorded variations in the magnetic field to an accuracy of 10 nT during periods of calm wind, but strong magnetic noise was observed during high winds, especially head winds. Ant-Plane 4-1 achieved a continuous flight of 500 km, with a maximum flight altitude of 5690 m. The Ant-Plane can be used for various types of Antarctic research as a basic platform for airborne surveys, but further development of the techniques employed in takeoff and landing are required, as well as ready adjustment of the engine and the development of small onboard instruments with greater reliability.

The Wigner-Ville Transform, An Approach to Interpret GPR Data: Outlining a Rik Zone  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this investigation, a time-frequency analysis is performed, based in the decomposition of the GPR signal in high- and low-frequencies. This process is combined with a statistical approach to detect signal changes in time and position simultaneously. The spectral analysis is carried out through the Wigner-Ville distribution (WVD). A cross-correlation can be computed between the original signal and the time-frequency components to obtain structural anomalies in the GPR observations, and to perform a correlation with the available geology. An example of this methodology is presented, where a series of traces where analyzed from a GPR profile surveyed in an eastern area of Mexico City. This is a heavily urbanized region built on the bottom of an ancient lake. The sediments are poorly consolidated and the extraction water rate has increased the areas of subsidence. Nowadays, most of family homes and public buildings, mainly schools have started to suffer heavy damages. The geophysical study carried out in the area permitted to detect areas of high risk. The data analysis combined with previous geological studies, which included stratigraphic columns allowed to identify the geophysical characteristics of the area, which will allow to the authorities to plan the future development of the area.

Clinton outlines principles guiding health care reform plan as detractors weigh in.  

PubMed

A summary is provided of President Clinton's address on health insurance before the August meeting of the National Governor's Association (NGA). Enactment would probably occur in 1994. Health care reform is expected to be difficult, and White House aides working on this issue have moved appropriately into the White House "war room". The President identified the basic components of the plan as 1) universal coverage, 2) simplification of administration and expenses, and 3) coast containment, but he declined to provide details of the plan. The speech was well received, and action was urged by governors to respect state discretion and allow for state efforts in health care reform before national enactment of a flexible framework. Employer mandates received considerable attention. Governor Pete Wilson of California was concerned about the effect on small businesses and suggested that the program be voluntary. Opponents of the plan are already preparing a multimillion lobbying effort. President Clinton has received a letter endorsed by 41 Republican congressmen which stated their strong opposition to employer mandates. Republicans in both the House and Senate are preparing their own plans. House Minority Leader Robert Michel of Illinois is planning to introduce, in the fall, a proposal, without universal coverage. A Senate proposal by John Chafee of Rhode Island would provide universal coverage. Health care advisor Ira Magaziner had leaked that the plan would include coverage of abortion- related services, and a conscience clause for those morally or religiously opposed to providing abortion-related care. States would be allowed to set conditions on abortions, such as the parental request restrictions or waiting periods. Support for abortion related services came from 33 women congressional representatives on behalf of the bipartisan Congressional Caucus for Women's Issues. Comprehensive reproductive health care was also requested as a necessary provision in the plan. PMID:12318256

Psychotherapy research needs theory. Outline for an epistemology of the clinical exchange.  

PubMed

This paper provides an analysis of a basic assumption grounding the clinical research: the ontological autonomy of psychotherapy-based on the idea that the clinical exchange is sufficiently distinguished from other social objects (i.e. exchange between teacher and pupils, or between buyer and seller, or interaction during dinner, and so forth). A criticism of such an assumption is discussed together with the proposal of a different epistemological interpretation, based on the distinction between communicative dynamics and the process of psychotherapy-psychotherapy is a goal-oriented process based on the general dynamics of human communication. Theoretical and methodological implications are drawn from such a view: It allows further sources of knowledge to be integrated within clinical research (i.e. those coming from other domains of analysis of human communication); it also enables a more abstract definition of the psychotherapy process to be developed, leading to innovative views of classical critical issues, like the specific-nonspecific debate. The final part of the paper is devoted to presenting a model of human communication--the Semiotic Dialogical Dialectic Theory--which is meant as the framework for the analysis of psychotherapy.

Recovery of recombinant proteins from plants using aqueous two-phase partitioning systems: an outline.  

PubMed

Transgenic plants producing recombinant proteins are a potential low-cost substitute for complex bioreactors. However, the development of new robust downstream processes to improve protein recovery and isolation from plant feedstock is critical to promote this new technique because downstream processing costs typically contribute to more than 80 % of the total cost. Polishing separation platforms for protein purification, such as chromatography and membrane filtration, have been well established, while little attention has been allocated to initial concentration and separation procedures. In this chapter, application of aqueous two-phase partitioning (ATPP), as an attractive alternative to traditional processes for recovering and isolating target proteins from plant green tissues or seeds, as well as the main advances reported in literature concerning ATPP for the isolation and purification of proteins from plant feedstock are reviewed. The potential application of ATPP as an integrated extraction and isolation step and isolation step after extraction or protein characterization method is discussed separately. The connection of ATPP with traditional protein separation processes is discussed. The separation mechanisms of ATPP are explained based on surface properties of proteins and polymer systems. Finally, the future trends in applying ATPP for protein separation are discussed. PMID:24648069

The Biological Oxidant and Life Detection (BOLD) mission: an outline for a new mission to Mars  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Viking mission was the only mission to date that conducted life detection experiments. It revealed ambiguous and still controversial results. New findings and hypotheses urge a re-evaluation of the Viking results and a re-evaluation of the evidence for the possible presence of life on Mars in general. Recent findings of abundant water ice on Mars, the presence of liquid contemporary water on the Martian surface, and the detection of methane in the Martian atmosphere further support this possibility. Current missions to be launched focus on habitability considerations (e.g., NASA Phoenix, NASA Mars Science Laboratory), but shy away from directly testing for life on Mars, with the potential exception of the ESA ExoMars mission. If these currently planned missions collect positive evidence toward habitability and the possible existence of extraterrestrial (microbial) life on Mars, it would be timely to propose a new mission to Mars with a strong life detection component. We propose such a mission called BOLD: Biological Oxidant and Life Detection Mission. The BOLD mission objective would be to quantify the amount of hydrogen peroxide existing in the Martian soil and to test for processes typically associated with life. Six landing packages are projected to land on Mars that include a limited power supply, a set of oxidant and life detection experiments, and a transmitter, which is able to transmit information via an existing Mars orbiter back to Earth.

The money expression of value and the credit system: a value-form theoretic outline  

Microsoft Academic Search

In most of Marxist economics the theory of money is grounded in commodity money. This grounding calls for reconsideration in the light of recent debate over the Marxist theory of value and recent analysis of developments in the capitalist monetary institutions. It is shown in this paper that money, credit money and a fully developed credit system can be conceptualised

Networking between community health programs: a case study outlining the effectiveness, barriers and enablers  

PubMed Central

Background In India, since the 1990s, there has been a burgeoning of NGOs involved in providing primary health care. This has resulted in a complex NGO-Government interface which is difficult for lone NGOs to navigate. The Uttarakhand Cluster, India, links such small community health programs together to build NGO capacity, increase visibility and better link to the government schemes and the formal healthcare system. This research, undertaken between 1998 and 2011, aims to examine barriers and facilitators to such linking, or clustering, and the effectiveness of this clustering approach. Methods Interviews, indicator surveys and participant observation were used to document the process and explore the enablers, the barriers and the effectiveness of networks improving community health. Results The analysis revealed that when activating, framing, mobilising and synthesizing the Uttarakhand Cluster, key brokers and network players were important in bridging between organisations. The ties (or relationships) that held the cluster together included homophily around common faith, common friendships and geographical location and common mission. Self interest whereby members sought funds, visibility, credibility, increased capacity and access to trainings was also a commonly identified motivating factor for networking. Barriers to network synthesizing included lack of funding, poor communication, limited time and lack of human resources. Risk aversion and mistrust remained significant barriers to overcome for such a network. Conclusions In conclusion, specific enabling factors allowed the clustering approach to be effective at increasing access to resources, creating collaborative opportunities and increasing visibility, credibility and confidence of the cluster members. These findings add to knowledge regarding social network formation and collaboration, and such knowledge will assist in the conceptualisation, formation and success of potential health networks in India and other developing world countries.

The efficacy of eye care for ventilated patients: outline of an experimental comparative research pilot study.  

PubMed

The aim in this study was to investigate the efficacy of eye care given to mechanically ventilated and unconscious patients in an intensive care unit; and to answer the research question: "Is eye surface integrity maintained after the application of a "Geliperm" dressing to the closed eye of a ventilated patient?' Six patients formed the sample group. In each patient one eye received standard eye care, forming the control group, and the other eye received a 'geliperm' dressing, forming the treatment group. Tear production, using the Schirmer test, and the degree of eye surface staining by rose bengal were used as the measurement indicators. As a pilot study this project was primarily concerned with establishing a sound methodology for further enquiry. There were some difficulties in validating the degree of rose bengal staining; no statistically significant difference could be demonstrated between outcomes of the two forms of eye care after a 24-hour test period, with a P = 0.05 significance level, using the Mann-Whitney-U test. It should be noted, however, that the sample size was too small to measure a statistically significant change or its absence, in either the treatment or control eye between pre- and post-test results, with the same significance level, and using the Wilcoxon signed rank test. This study does provide evidence to support the need for eye care for critically ill patients. The methodology may offer a way forward for future investigation in the search for optimal eye surface preservation. PMID:8696019

All information is now created, handled, stored and often used in digital form: we observe a formidable growth in the volume of data created, transmitted and archived.

An outline of appropriate risk management in the use of temporary dental nursing staff in practice.  

PubMed

It'll never happen, it might not happen, it shouldn't happen, it happened!The risk of human error represents the greater threat to complex systems such as the delivery of healthcare rather than technical failure. Much of the legislation recently introduced in UK healthcare services, Building a Safer NHS; An Organisation with a Memory and A First Class Service evolved from a growing awareness of adverse incidents occurring in the healthcare setting. In general dental practice the absence of a trained skilled dental nurse with local knowledge of the working environment constitutes a risk to patient safety. Be this through the lack of appropriate selection, training, induction or clinical supervision of an appropriate stand in. Be it due to poor governance, audit or quality control the cost to the practitioner, practice, profession and patient can be high. To mitigate this risk a comprehensive risk management system will be needed in practice. Planning to prevent such risks requires understanding, analysing, managing and costing the risk. Success depends on robust systems for screening, contracting and training of staff within an educated team of safety orientated personnel supported by suitable frameworks for standards, resources, policies, protocols, processes and checks within a clearly identifiable chain of command.

[Smoking in Morocco: an outline of the anti-smoking campaign].  

PubMed

In Morocco, as in many developing countries, tobacco use has become a plague which aggravates the many already existing problems. A coordinated prevention programme which included research and a variety of educational efforts, has been underway for the past five years. The preliminary stage of the non-smoking campaign consisted of research through use of a variety of standardized questionnaires. The research results showed tobacco use in Morocco to be the following: 23.8% of secondary students are smokers with variation according to family, culture, environment and sex (33% male vs. 8.6% female); 33.8% of university students smoke, including those in Medical Schools; 52.1% of adults in the work environment smoke, including doctors. The rate declines drastically among practicing muslims (between the ages of 14 and 65) to 9.8%. The use of other drugs is significantly higher in students who use tobacco (25%) than those who do not (1.5%). A common factor appeared regardless of age, sex, or occupation: there was insufficient information available concerning the harmful effects of smoking. An educational campaign was therefore launched. As the youth were considered to be the most vulnerable target group, a major part of the educational efforts was concentrated on them. A variety of activities was implemented including conference-debates using audiovisual supports; radio and T.V. broadcasts; contests run with the assistance of the CIPADED (International Committee for the Prevention of Alcohol/Drug Dependence). Information of the harmful effects of tobacco use was diffused in workplaces, government offices, and at public assemblies. Efforts were also implemented to promote adoption of legislation which would limit tobacco consumption.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:3371994

Constraining Dark Matter Halo Profiles and Galaxy Formation Models Using Spiral Arm Morphology. I. Method Outline  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We investigate the use of spiral arm pitch angles as a probe of disk galaxy mass profiles. We confirm our previous result that spiral arm pitch angles (P) are well correlated with the rate of shear (S) in disk galaxy rotation curves by using a much larger sample (51 galaxies) than used previously (17 galaxies). We use this correlation to argue that imaging data alone can provide a powerful probe of galactic mass distributions out to large look-back times. In contrast to previous work, we show that observed spiral arm pitch angles are similar when measured in the optical (at 0.4 ?m) and the near-infrared (at 2.1 ?m) with a mean difference of 2.3d+/-2.7d. This is then used to strengthen the known correlation between P and S using B-band images. We then use two example galaxies to demonstrate how an inferred shear rate coupled with a bulge-disk decomposition model and a Tully-Fisher-derived velocity normalization can be used to place constraints on a galaxy's baryon fraction and dark matter halo profile. We show that ESO 582-G12, a galaxy with a high shear rate (slightly declining rotation curve) at ~10 kpc, favors an adiabatically contracted halo, with high initial NFW concentration (cvir>16) and a high fraction of halo baryons in the form of stars (~15%-40%). In contrast, IC 2522 has a low shear rate (rising rotation curve) at ~10 kpc and favors nonadiabatically contracted models with low NFW concentrations (cvir~=2-8) and a low stellar baryon fraction <10%.

Is it Code Imperfection or 'garbage in Garbage Out'? Outline of Experiences from a Comprehensive Adr Code Verification  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

ADR equation describes many physical phenomena of interest in the field of water quality in natural streams and groundwater. In many cases such as: density driven flow, multiphase reactive transport, and sediment transport, either one or a number of terms in the ADR equation may become nonlinear. For that reason, numerical tools are the only practical choice to solve these PDEs. All numerical solvers developed for transport equation need to undergo code verification procedure before they are put in to practice. Code verification is a mathematical activity to uncover failures and check for rigorous discretization of PDEs and implementation of initial/boundary conditions. In the context computational PDE verification is not a well-defined procedure on a clear path. Thus, verification tests should be designed and implemented with in-depth knowledge of numerical algorithms and physics of the phenomena as well as mathematical behavior of the solution. Even test results need to be mathematically analyzed to distinguish between an inherent limitation of algorithm and a coding error. Therefore, it is well known that code verification is a state of the art, in which innovative methods and case-based tricks are very common. This study presents full verification of a general transport code. To that end, a complete test suite is designed to probe the ADR solver comprehensively and discover all possible imperfections. In this study we convey our experiences in finding several errors which were not detectable with routine verification techniques. We developed a test suit including hundreds of unit tests and system tests. The test package has gradual increment in complexity such that tests start from simple and increase to the most sophisticated level. Appropriate verification metrics are defined for the required capabilities of the solver as follows: mass conservation, convergence order, capabilities in handling stiff problems, nonnegative concentration, shape preservation, and spurious wiggles. Thereby, we provide objective, quantitative values as opposed to subjective qualitative descriptions as 'weak' or 'satisfactory' agreement with those metrics. We start testing from a simple case of unidirectional advection, then bidirectional advection and tidal flow and build up to nonlinear cases. We design tests to check nonlinearity in velocity, dispersivity and reactions. For all of the mentioned cases we conduct mesh convergence tests. These tests compare the results' order of accuracy versus the formal order of accuracy of discretization. The concealing effect of scales (Peclet and Damkohler numbers) on the mesh convergence study and appropriate remedies are also discussed. For the cases in which the appropriate benchmarks for mesh convergence study are not available we utilize Symmetry, Complete Richardson Extrapolation and Method of False Injection to uncover bugs. Detailed discussions of capabilities of the mentioned code verification techniques are given. Auxiliary subroutines for automation of the test suit and report generation are designed. All in all, the test package is not only a robust tool for code verification but also it provides comprehensive insight on the ADR solvers capabilities. Such information is essential for any rigorous computational modeling of ADR equation for surface/subsurface pollution transport.

The Double Solid Reactant Method for modeling the release of trace elements from dissolving solid phases: I. Outline and limitations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A Double Solid Reactant Method was elaborated from a suggestion of Marini (Geological sequestration of carbon dioxide: Thermodynamics, kinetics, and reaction path modeling. Developments in Geochemistry, Elsevier, Amsterdam, 2007) to simulate the release of trace elements during the progressive dissolution of solid phases. The method is based on the definition, for each dissolving solid, of both an entity whose thermodynamic and kinetic properties are known (either a pure mineral or a solid mixture) and a special reactant, that is, a material of known stoichiometry and unknown thermodynamic and kinetic properties. The special reactant is utilised to take into account the concentrations of trace elements in the dissolving solid phase. In this communication, the influence of several trace elements on the ? G f o, ? G r o and log K of the minerals considered by Lelli et al. (Environ Geol, 2007) and Accornero and Marini (Geobasi, 2007a; Proceedings of IMWA symposium, Cagliari, 27 31 May 2007b) was evaluated assuming ideal mixing in the solid state. These effects were found to be negligible for albite and the leucite latitic glass, limited for muscovites and chlorites, and slightly more important for apatites. These influences become progressively higher with increasing concentration of trace elements in these minerals. Based on these deviations in thermodynamic parameters, special reactants should not include oxide components with molar fractions higher than 0.003.

Taxonomical outlines of bio-diversity of Karnataka in a 14th century Kannada toxicology text Khagendra Mani Darpana.  

PubMed

Origin of ancient Indian toxicology can be dated back to vedic literature. Toxins of both animate and inanimate world were very well understood during the era. Rig and Atharva vedic texts describe such details. After classifying such toxins, Charaka Samhitha, the basic literature of Indian Medicine used gold and ghee as panaceas to counter act them. Ayurveda considers toxicology as one among the eight specialized branches of medical wisdom. Unfortunately, the available literature on this is very limited. Moreover, they have been discussed briefly in Charaka and Sushrutha Samhitha. Mangarasa I, a Jain scholar who lived on the foothills of the Western Ghats, in Southern India in 1350 A.D., felt this vacuum and composed an independent, elaborate Kannada text on toxicology. His less known text Khagendra Mani Darpana (KMD) is the first ever documented complete text on toxicology in the world. Medieval Indian wisdom on plant and animal diversities are very well reflected in this unique toxicological text. Centuries past to Linnean era, KMD gives vivid descriptions on zoological and botanical diversities of the time. This astonishing fact is an evidence of our ancestor's curiosities about the nature around them. A critical overview of the bio-diversity described in KMD text is discussed in this paper.

Causes of insufficient quality of middle-term geomagnetic storms prognosis and outline of problem-solving  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Modern investigations of space weather and revelation of the geomagnetic storms' nature are mainly aimed at examination of such bright events like CMEs or CIRs coming, and, correspond-ingly, severe geomagnetic storms prediction. Methods of forecast and detection of CME-like conditions in solar wind work very well for short-term storm prognosis, but meet with failure at the attempts of their alert time extension from 1 day to several days. The middle-term prognoses of all intensities geomagnetic storms have low quality, because they are based on the prediction of solar wind conditions typical for exciting of severe storms only. Statistical investigations show that predicting combination "high solar wind velocity + strong negative IMF Bz-component" successfully works only for strong geomagnetic storms beginning, but weak and mild storms do not obey this rule. Analysis of several lists of geomagnetic storms (list of geomagnetic storms with sudden com-mencement, McPherron's list of magnetic storms in the space age, and list of major geomagnetic storms) allows formulate additional rule: "sharp solar wind density increase + consequent neg-ative IMF Bz = weak or moderate geomagnetic storm". The studies show that the solar wind density plays more significant geoeffective role than it was previously assumed. Sharp density increase and consequent negative Bz (sometimes Bz turns negative several hour after density jump) can produce weak, moderate and even strong magnetic storms without any significant changes in the solar wind velocity. This fact could be explained by prevailing of "loading-unloading mechanism" of magnetospheric energy transfer from the solar wind in the most of cases of mixed type solar wind streams' interaction with magnetosphere over the "directly driven magnetosphere" mechanism, which is more appropriate for explanation of solar wind-magnetosphere interaction for the streams like ICMEs and CIRs .

Great earthquakes and slow slip events along the Sagami trough and outline of the Kanto Asperity Project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Kanto region is one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world. Complicated plate configurations are due to T-T-T type triple junction, island arc-island arc collision zone, and very shallow angle between axis of the Sagami trough and subducting direction. Great earthquakes along the Sagami trough have repeatedly occurred. The 1703 Genroku and 1923 (Taisho) Kanto earthquakes caused severe damages in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Intriguingly slow slip events have also repeatedly occurred in an area adjacent to the asperities of the great earthquakes, off Boso peninsula (e.g., Ozawa et al 2007). In the cases of the Nankai and Cascadia subduction zones, slow slip events occur at deeper levels than the asperity, in a transition zone between the asperity and a region of steady slip. In contrast, slow slip events in the Kanto region have occurred at relatively shallow depths, at the same level as the asperity, raising the possibility of friction controlled by different conditions to those (temperature and pressure) encountered at Nankai and Cascadia. We focus on three different types of seismic events occurring repeatedly at the almost same depth of the seismogenic zone along the Sagami trough (5-20 km) (1) The 1923 M~7.9 Taisho earthquake, located in Sagami Bay. Maximum slip is about 6 m, the recurrence interval is 200-400 yr, and the coupling rate is 80-100% (“coupling rates” = “slip amounts during earthquakes or slow-slip events” / [“rate of motion of the Philippine Sea Plate” - “recurrence interval”]) . (2) The 1703 M~8.2 Genroku earthquake, located in Sagami Bay, but also extending to the southern part of Boso Peninsula. Maximum slip is 15-20 m, the recurrence interval is ~2000 yr, and the coupling rate at the southern part of the Boso Peninsula is 10-30%. (3) Boso slow-slip events, located southeast of Boso Peninsula. Maximum slip is 15-20 cm over ~10 days, the recurrence interval is 5-6 yr, and the coupling rate is 70-100%. Proposals of the Kanto Asperity Project (KAP) have been submitted to the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) to investigate the three patches. The scientific objectives are Objective 1: To understand why the three different types of events occur side by side at almost same depth (in same P-T conditions), and Objective 2: To establish realistic earthquake-generation models using data on each step of the process of natural earthquakes. The KAP consists of three research programs for these objectives. In Program A (not submitted yet), we will propose shallow drilling, coring, and logging at several sites to get input materials on the Philippine sea plate and to measure stress in wide area. In Program B, we propose long-term monitoring with wide area network to observe 2-3 cycles of slow slip events and to verify a model of earthquake generation cycle through model of slow slip event cycle. In Program C, we propose coring and logging plate boundaries in asperity to measure physical properties (particularly frictional parameters) and pore pressures to establish a realistic earthquake cycle model.

Monitoring policy and actions on food environments: rationale and outline of the INFORMAS policy engagement and communication strategies.  

PubMed

The International Network for Food and Obesity/non-communicable diseases Research, Monitoring and Action Support (INFORMAS) proposes to collect performance indicators on food policies, actions and environments related to obesity and non-communicable diseases. This paper reviews existing communications strategies used for performance indicators and proposes the approach to be taken for INFORMAS. Twenty-seven scoring and rating tools were identified in various fields of public health including alcohol, tobacco, physical activity, infant feeding and food environments. These were compared based on the types of indicators used and how they were quantified, scoring methods, presentation and the communication and reporting strategies used. There are several implications of these analyses for INFORMAS: the ratings/benchmarking approach is very commonly used, presumably because it is an effective way to communicate progress and stimulate action, although this has not been formally evaluated; the tools used must be trustworthy, pragmatic and policy-relevant; multiple channels of communication will be needed; communications need to be tailored and targeted to decision-makers; data and methods should be freely accessible. The proposed communications strategy for INFORMAS has been built around these lessons to ensure that INFORMAS's outputs have the greatest chance of being used to improve food environments.

[The development of a device for condylar movement by electro-magnetic field. 1. Outline and characteristics of the device].  

PubMed

It is very important for clinical diagnosis to record and analyze condylar movement in cranio-mandibular disorders. Recently, many devices have been developed for this purpose. These devices can measure precisely condylar movements, but are difficult to manipulate. We have developed a simple device which substitute a palpation of the posterior aspect of the TMJ. We modified the Cardiokymograph which use electro-magnetic field. The characteristics of this device are the use of a frequency-variable crystal-controlled oscillator, and the application of the coil itself which is a part of the oscillator as a probe. We tested many electrical characteristics of this device and assured the effectiveness, that is, sensitivity, directivity, frequency response characteristic, transient response characteristic, and temperature response characteristic. We tried to insert a probe into the external auditory meatus, and record condylar movement as a positional change of the skin. It seems to suggest that our device can record a feature of condylar movement. PMID:2134788

Joint reconstruction of galaxy clusters from gravitational lensing and thermal gas. I. Outline of a non-parametric method  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present a method of estimating the lensing potential from massive galaxy clusters for given observational X-ray data. The concepts developed and applied in this work can be easily combined with other techniques to infer the lensing potential, e.g. weak gravitational lensing or galaxy kinematics, to obtain an overall best-fit model for the lensing potential. After elaborating on the physical details and assumptions the method is based on, we explain how the numerical algorithm itself is implemented with a Richardson-Lucy algorithm as a central part. Our reconstruction method is tested on simulated galaxy clusters with a spherically symmetric NFW density profile filled with gas in hydrostatic equilibrium. We describe in detail how these simulated observational data sets are created and how they need to be fed into our algorithm. We tested the robustness of the algorithm against small parameter changes and estimate the quality of the reconstructed lensing potentials. As it turns out, we achieve a very high degree of accuracy in reconstructing the lensing potential. The statistical errors remain below 2.0%, whereas the systematical error does not exceed 1.0%.

[Representatives of consumer associations and the "hôpital, patients, santé et territoires" law: an outline of the issues and twelve proposals].  

PubMed

Since 1996, consumers have been able to become involved in the development and implementation of national, regional and local healthcare policies, thereby demonstrating the possibility of establishing a model of democratic institution in healthcare at all levels of decision-making and policy implementation. Despite this 13-year political ambition, it is open to question whether the bill on the reform of the hospital will serve to extend the same dynamic for patients, healthcare institutions and local authorities. On 15 November 2008 and 18 April 2009, fifty-four consumer association representatives in the Franche-Comté region convened to conduct an audit of their commitments with a view to making proposals to adapt the bill aimed at reforming hospitals for the benefit of patients, healthcare and territories (HPST) before the bill is debated in Parliament (National Assembly and Senate). Despite significant investments since 1996 and some notable successes, for these representatives of consumer healthcare associations, the results are distinctly mixed. This is because they sometimes feel instrumentalized in healthcare facilities and believe that their opportunities for participation have declined since 2002. Their view is that this may diminish the power they wield at a time when the economy may be seen as becoming a substitute for public healthcare and participatory democracy. In a context of inequality in healthcare and at a time of economic crisis, this paradigm shift has tended to mobilize representatives of consumer associations. In their view, a strong counter-power is required to ensure fair and equal access to healthcare for all. They suggest twelve proposals concerning organization and professionalism at both territorial and national levels, articulated around the following principle : a representative of a consumers' association can become a regional reference in the management of the agency's regional healthcare system and may be given the means to coordinate the work of other representatives of consumer associations for each of the regional healthcare plans.

Degradation of the veterinary fluoroquinolone antibiotic enrofloxacin (EFL) was studied with three strains of Gloeophyllum, basidiomycetous fungi thought to produce extracellular hydroxyl radicals. Metabolites generated in a mineral medium were analyzed by combined high-performance liquid chromatography/high-resolution electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Their origin was inferred from peak doublets representing 12C and 14C isotopomers detected at a defined proportion. From each exact molecular mass, the molecular formula was derived for which the most probable chemical structure was postulated, using for guidance 18 known EFL metabolites. All supernatants provided similar metabolite patterns, with the most comprehensive consisting of 87 compounds. These metabolites belonged to five families headed by EFL, its oxidatively decarboxylated or defluorinated congeners, an isatin-, and an anthranilic acid-type derivative. Metabolites hydroxylated in the aromatic part suggested the formation of three catechols and two oxidizable ortho-aminophenol-type compounds. After oxidation to the respective ortho-quinones or ortho-quinone imines and oxidative ring cleavage at one of three alternative sites, the formation of various cis,cis-muconic acid-type derivatives is likely, one of which could be detected. Anthranilic acid-type compounds provided two additional sites for ortho-aminophenol formation and aromatic ring cleavage. An "exploding" network of diverse EFL congeners produced by Gloeophyllum suggests the broad utility of our model for studying biodegradation. PMID:16249878

A Rationale and Outline for an Undergraduate Course on the Philosophy and History of Science for Life Science Students.  

PubMed

There are compelling reasons for teaching a philosophy of science course to undergraduate life science students. The main reason is to help them understand that modern science is not based upon a single, consistent philosophical system; nor is it based upon common sense, or a method, set of rules or formulas that can be used to make unerring predictions. Rather, science is a dynamic process that is constantly being modified and refined to reflect and encompass an ever-expanding set of hypotheses, observations, and theories. To illustrate these points, we developed a course that examined the history and philosophical underpinnings of modern science, and we discussed famous experiments that challenged the prevailing norm and led to Kuhnian revolutions in scientific thought. Building upon this knowledge, students investigated how different philosophical systems address controversial social issues in the biological sciences. They examined the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools, the implications of legalized abortion and physician-assisted suicide, the potential impact of DNA fingerprinting on human rights and racism, the promise and pitfalls of stem cell research, and the neurobiological basis of consciousness and its relevance to mental health therapies and the animal rights movement. We believe undergraduate life science students should be exposed to these issues and have an opportunity to develop informed opinions about them before they graduate from college. Exploration of such topics will help them become better prepared for the inevitable public debates that they will face as science educators, researchers, and leaders of society. PMID:21289866

Outline of Changes in Cortisol and Melatonin Circadian Rhythms in the Security Guards of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences  

PubMed Central

Background: According to the literature, a large number of people working in industries and service providing personnel, such as firefighters, physicians, and nurses are shift workers. The spread of shift working in industrial societies and the incidence of the problems resulting from shift working have caused the researchers to conduct studies on this issue. The present study also aimed to investigate melatonin and cortisol circadian rhythms in the security guards of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran. Methods: The present study was conducted on 20 security guards of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences. In order to collect the study data, blood samples were taken from the study subjects in different times of the day (1, 4, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, and 22) and cortisol and melatonin levels were determined using the radioimmunoassay and enzyme immunoassay techniques, respectively. Results: The results showed that as the intensity of light increased at night, the plasma cortisol level increased, as well. Besides, no statistically significant difference was found between the plasma cortisol levels in natural light and 4500-lux light. On the other hand, a significant difference was observed between the plasma cortisol levels in natural light and 9000-lux light as well as 4500- and 9000-lux lights. The study findings also showed that as the intensity of light increased at night, the plasma melatonin level decreased. In addition, a statistically significant difference was found between the plasma melatonin levels in natural light and 4500-lux light. Nevertheless, no significant difference was observed between the plasma melatonin levels in the natural light and 9000-lux light as well as 4500- and 9000-lux lights. Conclusions: The present study aimed to investigate the subsequences of shift working in the security guards of Shiraz University of Medical Sciences and showed that occupational exposure to bright light could affect some biological markers, such as melatonin and cortisol secretion.

Smartphone technology can be transformative to the deployment of lab-on-chip diagnostics.  

PubMed

The rapid expansion of mobile technology is transforming the biomedical landscape. By 2016 there will be 260 M active smartphones in the US and millions of health accessories and software "apps" running off them. In parallel with this have come major technical achievements in lab-on-a-chip technology leading to incredible new biochemical sensors and molecular diagnostic devices. Despite these advancements, the uptake of lab-on-a-chip technologies at the consumer level has been somewhat limited. We believe that the widespread availability of smartphone technology and the capabilities they offer in terms of computation, communication, social networking, and imaging will be transformative to the deployment of lab-on-a-chip type technology both in the developed and developing world. In this paper we outline why we believe this is the case, the new business models that may emerge, and detail some specific application areas in which this synergy will have long term impact, namely: nutrition monitoring and disease diagnostics in limited resource settings.

Why national labs?  

SciTech Connect

Biologists are defined by both their field of investigation and where they work. When I was a tenured university professor in the pathology department of a medical school, my colleagues scientists seemed to understand what I did for a living. Now that I work at a national laboratory, I am more likely to be greeted with blank stares. The questions that I do get, such as whether I need to write research grants (I do) or whether I work on the energy problem (I don’t), indicates a pervasive lack of understanding of the nature of national labs and their important roles in biological research. The national labs were largely responsible for a new phase of biology. DOE started the Human Genome Project to understand the molecular basis of radiation damage. GenBank began at Los Alamos National Laboratory in the early 1980s to manage the increasing amounts of DNA sequence data. The high-intensity x-ray sources found at national labs began being used to rapidly solve protein structures. These projects required a level of technical sophistication and scale that were well beyond most universities. This, together with a lack of departmental boundaries and a tradition of multidisciplinary teamwork, made national labs an excellent environment for tackling challenging problems in biology. I believe that most academic scientists are unaware of the research that goes on at national labs, mostly due to our small size and general focus on advanced technology. Biology has traditionally been more labor intensive than technology dependent, which plays to the natural strengths of universities. However, this is likely to change in the next several years.

Galvanized Sheet Metal Lab  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This module, created by Jamie Acker of Olympic High School in Bremerton, Washington, provides a look into an entry-level lab on galvanized metal. The introduction states, "This simple lab visually shows the effects of removing zinc from a galvanized piece of sheet metal and provides students an opportunity to mathematically calculate the reduction in thickness of the zinc and number of atoms lost, based on the change in mass." The module features an abstract, objective, curriculum overview, procedures, mathematical calculations and references. Students should gain knowledge taking measurements using a micrometer/beam balance, how to safely handle strong acids and use algebra to rearrange equations to balance equations. This is a great resource to either enhance or create new curriculum for instructors.

How to Find a Bug in Ten Thousand Lines Transport Solver? Outline of Experiences from AN Advection-Diffusion Code Verification  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Almost all natural phenomena on Earth are highly nonlinear. Even simplifications to the equations describing nature usually end up being nonlinear partial differential equations. Transport (ADR) equation is a pivotal equation in atmospheric sciences and water quality. This nonlinear equation needs to be solved numerically for practical purposes so academicians and engineers thoroughly rely on the assistance of numerical codes. Thus, numerical codes require verification before they are utilized for multiple applications in science and engineering. Model verification is a mathematical procedure whereby a numerical code is checked to assure the governing equation is properly solved as it is described in the design document. CFD verification is not a straightforward and well-defined course. Only a complete test suite can uncover all the limitations and bugs. Results are needed to be assessed to make a distinction between bug-induced-defect and innate limitation of a numerical scheme. As Roache (2009) said, numerical verification is a state-of-the-art procedure. Sometimes novel tricks work out. This study conveys the synopsis of the experiences we gained during a comprehensive verification process which was done for a transport solver. A test suite was designed including unit tests and algorithmic tests. Tests were layered in complexity in several dimensions from simple to complex. Acceptance criteria defined for the desirable capabilities of the transport code such as order of accuracy, mass conservation, handling stiff source term, spurious oscillation, and initial shape preservation. At the begining, mesh convergence study which is the main craft of the verification is performed. To that end, analytical solution of ADR equation gathered. Also a new solution was derived. In the more general cases, lack of analytical solution could be overcome through Richardson Extrapolation and Manufactured Solution. Then, two bugs which were concealed during the mesh convergence study uncovered with the method of false injection and visualization of the results. Symmetry had dual functionality: there was a bug, which was hidden due to the symmetric nature of a test (it was detected afterward utilizing artificial false injection), on the other hand self-symmetry was used to design a new test, and in a case the analytical solution of the ADR equation was unknown. Assisting subroutines designed to check and post-process conservation of mass and oscillatory behavior. Finally, capability of the solver also checked for stiff reaction source term. The above test suite not only was a decent tool of error detection but also it provided a thorough feedback on the ADR solvers limitations. Such information is the crux of any rigorous numerical modeling for a modeler who deals with surface/subsurface pollution transport.
