Outline of the History  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The term `electrophoresis,' that is, the motion of charged particles under the influence of an applied electric field, was formulated as early as the nineteenth century. The first to use electrophoresis as a technique for mixtures separation was Tiselius, who for his accomplishments was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 11 years later. Others to contribute to the development of capillary electrophoresis were Hjertén, Jorgenson and Lukacs, as well as Terabe. This chapter presents a brief historical outline of electromigration techniques.

Putting time into proof outlines  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A logic for reasoning about timing properties of concurrent programs is presented. The logic is based on Hoare-style proof outlines and can handle maximal parallelism as well as certain resource-constrained execution environments. The correctness proof for a mutual exclusion protocol that uses execution timings in a subtle way illustrates the logic in action. A soundness proof using structural operational semantics is outlined in the appendix.

Quantum logic. A brief outline  

E-print Network

Quantum logic has been introduced by Birkhoff and von Neumann as an attempt to base the logical primitives, the propositions and the relations and operations among them, on quantum theoretical entities, and thus on the related empirical evidence of the quantum world. We give a brief outline of quantum logic, and some of its algebraic properties, such as nondistributivity, whereby emphasis is given to concrete experimental setups related to quantum logical entities. A probability theory based on quantum logic is fundamentally and sometimes even spectacularly different from probabilities based on classical Boolean logic. We give a brief outline of its nonclassical aspects; in particular violations of Boole-Bell type consistency constraints on joint probabilities, as well as the Kochen-Specker theorem, demonstrating in a constructive, finite way the scarcity and even nonexistence of two-valued states interpretable as classical truth assignments. A more complete introduction of the author can be found in the book "Quantum Logic" (Springer, 1998)

Family planning propaganda outline, 1988.  

PubMed

In 1988, the regional Family Planning (FP) Commission of Nei Monggol, China, issued a propaganda outline containing the following language: "In order to fulfill the three fighting targets put forward by the autonomous regional party committee, efforts should be made to accelerate the speed of developing the economy on the one hand and bring population growth under strict control on the other hand. It is necessary to further stabilize the existing policy on FP work and to continuously encourage one couple to have one child throughout their life. In allowing rural people to have a second birth, rural authorities must strictly enforce the measure, strictly ban second or more births outside the plan, and strictly prohibit people marrying too early and giving birth too early. Minority nationalities should also implement the FP policy in line with the demand of central authorities." The propaganda outline also urges Communist party members, CYL members, and cadres at all levels to actively respond to the party's call and be vanguards in FP work. PMID:12289660

Automatic Roof Outlines Reconstruction from Photogrammetric Dsm  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The extraction of geometric and semantic information from image and range data is one of the main research topics. Between the different geomatics products, 3D city models have shown to be a valid instrument for several applications. As a consequence, the interest for automated solutions able to speed up and reduce the costs for 3D model generation is greatly increased. Image matching techniques can nowadays provide for dense and reliable point clouds, practically comparable to LiDAR ones in terms of accuracy and completeness. In this paper a methodology for the geometric reconstruction of roof outlines (eaves, ridges and pitches) from aerial images is presented. The approach keeps in count the fact the usually photogrammetrically derived point clouds and DSMs are more noisy with respect to LiDAR data. A data driven approach is used in order to keep the maximum flexibility and to achieve satisfying reconstructions with different typologies of buildings. Some tests and examples are reported showing the suitability of photogrammetric DSM for this topic and the performances of the developed algorithm in different operative conditions.

On the accuracy of glacier outlines derived from satellite data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The determination of the accuracy of glacier outlines as mapped from satellite data is a mandatory task, in particular when change assessment is performed. However, this is often not correctly done as a direct comparison with a reference data set can give misleading results. Though it is widely accepted that glacier outlines as derived from a higher-resolution data set (e.g. aerial photography) can be used to determine the accuracy of outlines derived from a lower resolution data set (e.g. Landsat TM), this is not generally true and several details have to be considered. At first, changing glacier extents require to compare images acquired in the same year and rapidly changing snow conditions require to use images from the same week or at least with identical snow conditions (i.e. no snow outside of glaciers). Secondly, differences in interpretation result from the higher-spatial resolution itself and the missing shortwave infrared band in high-resolution data. In particular, the determination of the glacier boundary on panchromatic imagery can locally be impossible (when the ice and the surrounding rock have the same reflectance). Thirdly, for natural objects like glaciers the change of the resolution alone results in a change of the area covered by the respective outline. Finally, the required manual correction of debris-covered glacier parts is done differently by different analysts and also by the same analyst when digitized several times. To overcome these challenges and provide an accuracy assessment for a larger data set, we will perform a combined round robin and validation experiment in the framework of the ESA project Glaciers_cci. This will include the manual and automated digitization of glacier outlines on high and low resolution satellite data (e.g. Quickbird / Ikonos vs. Landsat TM / ETM+) in different parts of the world (Alaska, Alps, Himalaya), as well as multiple digitizations of the same set of glaciers (with and without debris cover) by different and the same analysts. First results indicate that the accuracy of the glacier outlines (clean ice) as derived from automated techniques (TM3/TM5 band ratio) is similar to the standard deviation resulting from multiple digitizing experiments. Regions with low contrast in high-resolution imagery show a large variability in interpretation by different analysts. For an internal accuracy assessment it is recommended to digitize a couple of debris-covered glaciers several times and provide the mean of the standard deviations as the accuracy. An overlay of the digitized outlines is most helpful to identify the problematic regions.

Automatic Building Outlining from Multi-View Oblique Images  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Automatic building detection plays an important role in many applications. Multiple overlapped airborne images as well as lidar point clouds are among the most popular data sources used for this purpose. Multi-view overlapped oblique images bear both height and colour information, and additionally we explicitly have access to the vertical extent of objects, therefore we explore the usability of this data source solely to detect and outline buildings in this paper. The outline can then be used for further 3D modelling. In the previous work, building hypotheses are generated using a box model based on detected façades from four directions. In each viewing direction, façade edges extracted from images and height information by stereo matching from an image pair is used for the façade detection. Given that many façades were missing due to occlusion or lack of texture whilst building roofs can be viewed in most images, this work mainly focuses on improve the building box outline by adding roof information. Stereo matched point cloud generated from oblique images are combined with the features from images. Initial roof patches are located in the point cloud. Then AdaBoost is used to integrate geometric and radiometric attributes extracted from oblique image on grid pixel level with the aim to refine the roof area. Generalized contours of the roof pixels are taken as building outlines. The preliminary test has been done by training with five buildings and testing around sixty building clusters. The proposed method performs well concerning covering the irregular roofs as well as improve the sides location of slope roof buildings. Outline result comparing with cadastral map shows almost all above 70% completeness and correctness in an area-based assessment, as well as 20% to 40% improvement in correctness with respect to our previous work.

Outline extraction of microfossils in reflected light images  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Microcomputer-based systems coupled with real-time video digitizers provide an efficient method of collecting shape data by extracting the outline of an object presented for viewing from a digitized video image. A system is described for outline extraction of microfossil specimens viewed in reflected light, focusing on software algorithms which are appropriate for the anticipated images. Implemented procedures draw heavily on standard techniques such as image segmentation based on thresholding, and edge extraction utilizing the method of heuristic search. The approach makes several assumptions about the images which limits its general applicability. However, it is considered readily adaptable to other images, such as those produced by a scanning-electron microscope, which have similar properties to those observed using reflected light, and which might be encountered by workers studying shape.

Three-dimensional reconstruction of a cardiac outline by magnetocardiography.  

PubMed

A 3-D cardiac visualization is significantly helpful toward clinical applications of magnetocardiography (MCG), but the cardiac reconstruction requires a segmentation process using additional image modalities. This paper proposes a 3-D cardiac outline reconstruction method using only MCG measurement data without further imaging techniques. The cardiac outline was reconstructed by a combination of both spatial filtering and coherence mapping method. The strength of cardiac activities was first estimated by the array-gain constraint minimum-norm spatial filter with recursively updated gram matrix (AGMN-RUG). Then, waveforms were reconstructed at whole source grids, and the maximum source points of an atrium and ventricle were selected as a reference, respectively. Next, the coherence between each maximum source point and whole source points was compared by the coherence mapping method. A reconstructed cardiac outline was validated by comparing with an overlapped volume ratio when the reconstructed volume was identically matched with the original volume. The results obtained by the AGMN-RUG were compared to the results by other spatial filters. The accuracy of numerical simulation and phantom experiment by the AGMN-RUG was superior 10% and 8%, respectively, than the accuracy by the standardized low-resolution electromagnetic tomography. This accuracy demonstrated the efficacy of the proposed 3-D cardiac reconstruction method. PMID:25020011

Outline-based morphometrics, an overlooked method in arthropod studies?  

PubMed

Modern methods allow a geometric representation of forms, separating size and shape. In entomology, as well as in many other fields involving arthropod studies, shape variation has proved useful for species identification and population characterization. In medical entomology, it has been applied to very specific questions such as population structure, reinfestation of insecticide-treated areas and cryptic species recognition. For shape comparisons, great importance is given to the quality of landmarks in terms of comparability. Two conceptually and statistically separate approaches are: (i) landmark-based morphometrics, based on the relative position of a few anatomical "true" or "traditional" landmarks, and (ii) outline-based morphometrics, which captures the contour of forms through a sequence of close "pseudo-landmarks". Most of the studies on insects of medical, veterinary or economic importance make use of the landmark approach. The present survey makes a case for the outline method, here based on elliptic Fourier analysis. The collection of pseudo-landmarks may require the manual digitization of many points and, for this reason, might appear less attractive. It, however, has the ability to compare homologous organs or structures having no landmarks at all. This strength offers the possibility to study a wider range of anatomical structures and thus, a larger range of arthropods. We present a few examples highlighting its interest for separating close or cryptic species, or characterizing conspecific geographic populations, in a series of different vector organisms. In this simple application, i.e. the recognition of close or cryptic forms, the outline approach provided similar scores as those obtained by the landmark-based approach. PMID:25111609

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The FAME (Fast Analyzer for Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) Equilibrium) system has been developed in order to provide more than 100 MHD equilibria in time series which are enough for the non-stationary analysis of the experimental data of JT-60 within about 20 minutes shot interval. The FAME is an MIMD type small scale parallel computer with 20 microprocessors which are connected by a multi-stage switching system. The maximum theoretical speed is 250 MFLOPS. For the software system of FAME, MHD equilibrium analysis code SELENE and its input data production code FBI are tuned up taking the parallel processing into consideration. Consequently, the computational performance of the FAME system becomes more than 7 times faster than the existing general purpose computer FACOM M780-10s. This report summarizes the outline of the FAME system including hardware, soft-ware and peripheral equipments.

Orientation Based Building Outline Extraction in Aerial Images  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The goal of this paper is to extract automatically the building contours regardless of shape. By extracting these contours, detection results will be more accurate, giving useful information about urban area, which is important for many tasks, like map updating and disaster management. First, we extract local feature points from the image, based on a modification of Harris detector's saliency function, which can represent urban area and building effectively. This point set is then used to define the main orientation of the buildings, which characterizes well an urban region and helps to define directions, where object contours have to be searched. Second, we applied shearlet approach to extract edges in the defined directions. This results in an edge map, which helps us to determine point subsets belonging to the same building. Convex hulls of the point subsets is used for contour initialization, then region based Chan-Vese Active Contour method is applied to extract the accurate building outlines.

Outline of human machine interface at Rokkasho reprocessing plant  

SciTech Connect

The Japan Nuclear Fuel Limited (JNFL) has been performing the active tests since the end of March, 2006, for its Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant using the spent fuels retrieved from the Light Water Reactors. At the early stage of the tests relatively low burn-up fuels have been used, and the burn-up will be increased at later stages until the start of commercial operation planned next year. The plant is operated from the main control room in the Control Building, where two types of operator consoles are located for plant monitoring and operation. The Operator Interface Station (OIS) driven by computer systems is chiefly used for instrumentation and control for production activities during normal operation. In addition to this, safety panels composed of hardware circuits are installed for nuclear safety functions such as criticality safety management, explosion protection, and confinement of radioactive materials. This paper outlines the Human Machine Interface features applied to the Rokkasho Reprocessing Plant. (authors)

Geometric design method for occlusal outlines of complex class I and class II inlay cavities.  

PubMed

The purpose of this study was to establish a geometric design method for the occlusal outlines of complex inlay cavities as a continuation study of a previous design method for simple class I inlay cavity. A method for extending the occlusal outline to the buccal or lingual groove and to three preparation types of the proximal portions of class II inlay cavities -namely, straight line preparation, sweeping curve preparation, and reverse curve preparation- was investigated. To ensure the smoothness of the occlusal outline, a Bézier curve was introduced in the design. A minimal number of control points for the curve was applied to define each preparation type. The design method was experimentally applied to mandibular and maxillary first molars. Smooth outlines of the complex inlay cavities in the molars with tool accessibility throughout the cavities were achievable by using the present method. PMID:21946485

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

Multi-scale Gaussian representation and outline-learning based cell image segmentation  

PubMed Central

Background High-throughput genome-wide screening to study gene-specific functions, e.g. for drug discovery, demands fast automated image analysis methods to assist in unraveling the full potential of such studies. Image segmentation is typically at the forefront of such analysis as the performance of the subsequent steps, for example, cell classification, cell tracking etc., often relies on the results of segmentation. Methods We present a cell cytoplasm segmentation framework which first separates cell cytoplasm from image background using novel approach of image enhancement and coefficient of variation of multi-scale Gaussian scale-space representation. A novel outline-learning based classification method is developed using regularized logistic regression with embedded feature selection which classifies image pixels as outline/non-outline to give cytoplasm outlines. Refinement of the detected outlines to separate cells from each other is performed in a post-processing step where the nuclei segmentation is used as contextual information. Results and conclusions We evaluate the proposed segmentation methodology using two challenging test cases, presenting images with completely different characteristics, with cells of varying size, shape, texture and degrees of overlap. The feature selection and classification framework for outline detection produces very simple sparse models which use only a small subset of the large, generic feature set, that is, only 7 and 5 features for the two cases. Quantitative comparison of the results for the two test cases against state-of-the-art methods show that our methodology outperforms them with an increase of 4-9% in segmentation accuracy with maximum accuracy of 93%. Finally, the results obtained for diverse datasets demonstrate that our framework not only produces accurate segmentation but also generalizes well to different segmentation tasks. PMID:24267488

Reconstruction of Building Outlines in Dense Urban Areas Based on LIDAR Data and Address Points  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The paper presents a comprehensive method for automated extraction and delineation of building outlines in densely built-up areas. A novel approach to outline reconstruction is the use of geocoded building address points. They give information about building location thus highly reduce task complexity. Reconstruction process is executed on 3D point clouds acquired by airborne laser scanner. The method consists of three steps: building detection, delineation and contours refinement. The algorithm is tested against a data set that presents the old market town and its surroundings. The results are discussed and evaluated by comparison to reference cadastral data.

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.

Building outline detection based on height and intensity information of airborne laser scanning data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Urban environment is extremely complex due to a multitude of features with different heights and structures. Traditional methods available to extract information regarding the buildings by using optical remote sensing images are highly labor-intensive and time-consuming. This paper developed a new method to detect building outlines based on height and intensity information of Airborne LiDAR data. Texture, relative height and intensity characteristics were first extracted from the LiDAR point cloud. Then, Support Vector Data Description was used to detect buildings with training knowledge. Finally, building outlines were obtained after data post process including small region removal, raster to vector conversion and so on. Experiments show the method proposed in this study is reliable and could be widely used in other urban areas.

A high speed camera with auto adjustable ROI for product's outline dimension measurement  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Currently most domestic factories still manually detect machine arbors to decide if they meet industry standards. This method is costly, low efficient, and easy to misjudge the qualified arbors or miss the unqualified ones, thus seriously affects factories' efficiency and credibility. In this paper, we design a specific high-speed camera system with auto adjustable ROI for machine arbor's outline dimension measurement. The entire system includes an illumination part, a camera part, a mechanic structure part and a signal processing part based on FPGA. The system will help factories to realize automatic arbor measurement, and improve their efficiency and reduce their cost.

Outline of a new approach to the analysis of complex systems and decision processes.  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

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.

Robust particle outline extraction and its application to digital in-line holograms of marine organisms  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Digital holography offers a method of high-resolution imaging of microscopic particles and organisms in their natural environment. Automated image extraction and data processing are essential for rapid interrogation and analysis of the vast amounts of information contained in a typical hologram. In this work, we describe a robust-automated particle focusing approach, which we have developed to extract outlines of all particles contained within the sampling volume of each hologram constituting a "holovideo." The output data consists of ordered point-lists delineating polygons that match particle outlines and facilitate further processing such as extraction of focused images from the holograms themselves. The algorithm developed allows the reduction of, typically, a 2-GB holovideo to tens of megabytes, thereby greatly reducing analysis time by allowing rapid scanning of the contoured images without manual focusing. The algorithm has been demonstrated on synthetic and laboratory holograms and applied to holographic videos recorded in the North Sea. The algorithm output also lends itself to further automated analysis techniques like particle tracking or automated recognition.

Outline of the International Organization for Standardization Standard for Circulatory Support Devices (ISO 14708-5).  

PubMed

The rapid progress of artificial heart and circulatory support devices enables us to apply them to severe heart failure patients. Many types of circulatory support devices have been developed in the United States, Europe, and Japan. This situation urged the establishment of an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard for the circulatory support devices. A new work, "Cardiac Ventricular Assist Devices," was proposed to the ISO/TC150/SC6 (TC150: Technical Committee of Implants for Surgery, SC6: Sub-committee of Active Implants) in 2000, and the work was finalized for publication at a 2009 meeting of the ISO/TC150 in Kyoto. In this article, the authors would like to introduce the ISO system and the outline of the ISO Standard for Circulatory Support Devices. PMID:20883386

Education or degeneration: E. Ray Lankester, H. G. Wells and the outline of history.  

PubMed

This paper uses the friendship and collaboration of Edwin Ray Lankester (1847-1929), zoologist, and Herbert George Wells (1866-1946), novelist and journalist, to challenge the current interpretation of late Victorian concern over degeneration as essentially an intellectual movement with little influence in contemporary debates over social and political problems. Degeneration theory provided for Lankester and Wells the basis both for a personal bond and for an active programme of social and educational reform. I trace the construction of Lankester's account of degeneration, initially as empirical 'fact' and later as ideologically inflected theory, and the reciprocal relationship between this theory and his critique of the British university system. I use Wells's Outline of history (1920) to illustrate the profound influence of Lankester's degenerationist worldview on Wells's scientific and socio-political thought. Lankester's synthesis of his theory and his critique led the two men to reject eugenics as an unscientific and ideologically incompatible solution to the problem of national deterioration. Instead, they campaigned for the reform of scientific education as a means of keeping mankind from physical, intellectual and cultural degeneration. PMID:16769556

Possible Conduit-Matrix Water Exchange Signatures Outlined at a Karst Spring.  

PubMed

During a significant flood event, reversible water exchanges may occur between a karst conduit and its adjacent porous rock (frequently designated as "matrix"): while the flood pulse rises, some conduit-derived water is forced into the matrix; then, as the flood recedes, the same water flows back into the stream passage. The present note addresses such a karst setting in the Carpathian Mountains (Romania), where in addition, a usually stable flux of chloride originating in a natural saline inflow, was being mixed with a variable flow of karst freshwater. For that particular case, with the above-mentioned process of matrix storage/release from storage assumedly taking place downstream of the mixing site, two distinct chemical signatures could be noticed during a flood event: an initial depletion in the spring flow chloride flux, subsequently followed by a comparable chloride flux enrichment (the depletion and the enrichment being outlined with respect to the essentially stable chloride flux value that had been noticed to persist at the spring over a long period of flow rate recession). Concomitantly with such flood-induced fluctuations in the spring chloride flux, the spring discharge displayed, for long periods, abnormally slow variations: the latter likely indicated that the spring supply rate actual oscillations were buffered by the reversible water exchanges which took place between the karst conduit and its adjacent matrix. On the whole, these results show that conduit-matrix water exchanges could be interpreted by simple mass balance calculations that involved fluxes of a conservative tracer (the chloride ion in that particular case).

[Diffuse ventricular enlargement outlines the late outcome of diffuse axonal brain injury].  

PubMed

Clinical significance of ventriculomegaly after severe head trauma has not been fully explored yet. We analyzed hospital records of 53 cases of diffuse axonal injury and 7 cases of brain concussion together. The follow-up periods ranged from 6 months to 8 years (average 25 months). Four patients underwent CSF shunting without noticeable effect. We classified their outcome according to our modification of the Glasgow outcome scale: vegetated, severe, moderate, mild, fair, and good. We reviewed initial (within 12 hours after injury) CT scans and late (3 to 6 months after injury) CT scans or MRI's. We measured the ratio of the third ventricular width to the inner diameter of the skull on the axial view. We computed the lateral ventricular volume by our newly-devised method which took the partial volume phenomenon into account. Temporary extracerebral fluid accumulation was noted mostly within 3 months after injury in 25 of 39 cases in the mild level or above, and 2 of the 9 fair or good level cases. Ventriculomegaly occurred early and stabilized around the 3 month period. We found the differences between the late and the initial values of the third ventricular width (%) and the lateral ventricular volume (cc) highly correlated with our outcome scale (Spearman's correlation coefficient rs = 0.531, 0.676, respectively with p < 0.001 unanimously). We found the late values themselves of the third ventricular width and the lateral ventricular volume highly correlated with our outcome scale (rs = 0.575, 0.650, respectively with p < 0.001 unanimously). These 4 parameters were also highly correlated with the duration of the initial unconsciousness (LOC). Thus, posttraumatic diffuse ventriculomegaly affecting the third ventricle as well should outline the late outcome of diffuse axonal injury. Both the ventriculomegaly and the late outcome should be roughly predicted by the duration of the initial unconsciousness. PMID:8851951

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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

Extracting tissue and cell outlines of Arabidopsis seeds using refraction contrast X-ray CT at the SPring-8 facility  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

How biological form is determined is one of the important questions in developmental biology. Physical forces are thought to be the primary determinants of the biological forms, and several theories for this were proposed nearly a century ago. To evaluate how physical forces can influence biological forms, precise determination of cell and tissue shapes and their geometries is necessary. Computed tomography (CT) is useful for visualizing three-dimensional structures without destroying a sample. Because recent progress in micro-CT has enabled visualizing cells and tissues at the sub-micron level, we investigated if we could extract cell and tissue outlines of seeds using refraction contrast X-ray CT available at the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation facility. We used Arabidopsis seeds because Arabidopsis is a well-known model plant and its seed size is small enough to obtain whole images using the X-ray CT experimental system. We could trace the outlines of tissues in dry seeds using beamline BL20B2 (10 keV, 2.4µm.pixel-1). Although we could also detect the outlines of some cell types, the image resolution was not adequate to extract whole cell edges. To detect the edges of cells in the epidermis and cortex, we obtained CT images using beamline BL20XU (8 keV, 0.5 µm.pixel-1). With these CT images, we could extract the facets and edges of each cell and determine cell vertices. This method enabled us to compare the numbers of cell facets among various cell types. We could also describe cell geometry as a set of points that showed these cell vertices.

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.

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.

Model curriculum outline for Alternatively Fueled Vehicle (AFV) automotive technician training in light and medium duty CNG and LPG  

SciTech Connect

This model curriculum outline was developed using a turbo-DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) process which utilizes practicing experts to undertake a comprehensive job and task analysis. The job and task analysis serves to establish current baseline data accurately and to improve both the process and the product of the job through constant and continuous improvement of training. The DACUM process is based on the following assumptions: (1) Expert workers are the best source for task analysis. (2) Any occupation can be described effectively in terms of tasks. (3) All tasks imply knowledge, skills, and attitudes/values. A DACUM panel, comprised of six experienced and knowledgeable technicians who are presently working in the field, was given an orientation to the DACUM process. The panel then identified, verified, and sequenced all the necessary job duty areas and tasks. The broad duty categories were rated according to relative importance and assigned percentage ratings in priority order. The panel then rated every task for each of the duties on a scale of 1 to 3. A rating of 3 indicates an {open_quotes}essential{close_quotes} task, a rating of 2 indicates an {open_quotes}important{close_quotes} task, and a rating of 1 indicates a {open_quotes}desirable{close_quotes} task.

Spectral reference line data relevant to remote sensing applications: a review and outline of the EUMETRISPEC project  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Within the European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)1 the EUMETRISPEC joint research project was focused on metrological aspects of spectral reference line data2 as presented earlier3. We review EUMETRISPEC's first funding through the EMRP and the outcome of this metrology effort to support the line data and the atmospheric remote sensing community. We describe current examples from the EMRP project to address present deficiencies of available line data. Key points of this project were the development of an open European hardware infrastructure for traceable spectral reference data and the development of standardized procedures to measure traceable molecular spectral line data. The paper describes the development of a spectroscopy infrastructure based on a Bruker IFS 125 HR high-resolution Fourier- Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometer, discusses the achieved results on molecular line parameters (e.g. line strengths and pressure broadening coefficients) of the greenhouse gas species CO2 and CO. Here, metrology aims to provide its additional input in terms of improved quality management, detailed uncertainty assessments and ultimately traceable spectral data linked to the SI units wherever tightened data quality objectives and improved data quality are required for certain remote sensing applications. In this paper we show how metrology efforts support this goal by means of spectroscopy infrastructure. An outline of future activities is given promoting the discussion with the remote sensing community and fostering improved links to the metrology community.

Informed consent in direct-to-consumer personal genome testing: the outline of a model between specific and generic consent.  

PubMed

Broad genome-wide testing is increasingly finding its way to the public through the online direct-to-consumer marketing of so-called personal genome tests. Personal genome tests estimate genetic susceptibilities to multiple diseases and other phenotypic traits simultaneously. Providers commonly make use of Terms of Service agreements rather than informed consent procedures. However, to protect consumers from the potential physical, psychological and social harms associated with personal genome testing and to promote autonomous decision-making with regard to the testing offer, we argue that current practices of information provision are insufficient and that there is a place--and a need--for informed consent in personal genome testing, also when it is offered commercially. The increasing quantity, complexity and diversity of most testing offers, however, pose challenges for information provision and informed consent. Both specific and generic models for informed consent fail to meet its moral aims when applied to personal genome testing. Consumers should be enabled to know the limitations, risks and implications of personal genome testing and should be given control over the genetic information they do or do not wish to obtain. We present the outline of a new model for informed consent which can meet both the norm of providing sufficient information and the norm of providing understandable information. The model can be used for personal genome testing, but will also be applicable to other, future forms of broad genetic testing or screening in commercial and clinical settings. PMID:23137034

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

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This paper gives an outline of the structure of a solid solution based on 7Bi 2O 3 · 2WO 3. The experimental results using X-ray diffraction methods (precession and powder) showed that 7Bi 2O 3 · 2WO 3 crystallizes in the space group {I4 1}/{a} with a = 12.5143(5)Å and c = 11.2248(6) Å. The number of formula weights per unit cell is 40, when the formula is considered to be of the oxygen-deficient fluorite-type Bi 0.875W 0.125O 1.6875. The compound has a substructure based on a defect fluorite-type pseudocubic subcell with a' ? 5.6 Å. The axial relations between the supercell and subcell are a ? ?a' and c ? 2a'. The solid solution was formed over a limited range of WO 3 content between 21.3 mole% and 26.3 mole% at 700°C. The ordering of metal atoms is discussed and an ideal crystal structure is proposed.

Unsupervised Threshold for Automatic Extraction of Dolphin Dorsal Fin Outlines from Digital Photographs in DARWIN (Digital Analysis and Recognition of Whale Images on a Network)  

E-print Network

At least two software packages---DARWIN, Eckerd College, and FinScan, Texas A&M---exist to facilitate the identification of cetaceans---whales, dolphins, porpoises---based upon the naturally occurring features along the edges of their dorsal fins. Such identification is useful for biological studies of population, social interaction, migration, etc. The process whereby fin outlines are extracted in current fin-recognition software packages is manually intensive and represents a major user input bottleneck: it is both time consuming and visually fatiguing. This research aims to develop automated methods (employing unsupervised thresholding and morphological processing techniques) to extract cetacean dorsal fin outlines from digital photographs thereby reducing manual user input. Ideally, automatic outline generation will improve the overall user experience and improve the ability of the software to correctly identify cetaceans.

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.

An outline of a risk assessment-based system of meat safety assurance and its future prospects.  

PubMed

Discussed are the outlines of a risk assessment-based system of meat safety assurance to replace the current meat inspection. An example of a system that uses the Hazard Analysis of Critical Control Points (HACCP)-principles in the entire production chain from stable to table is also given. Continuous evaluation of risks is the main driving force of the new system. Only then the system has the means to remain flexible and provide for the data necessary to convince trade partners that the products they buy are safe. A monitoring system that keeps track of the important health hazards in the entire chain from stable to table is therefore necessary. This includes monitoring of cases of disease in the human population caused by the hazardous agents of concern. Coordination of the monitoring and control and processing of the information is done by an independent body. Furthermore, the system demands a production from stable to table that is based on the ideas of Integrated Quality Control (IQC), HACCP, and certification of production processes and quality control procedures. Clear legislation provides for criteria about acceptable or unacceptable health risks for the consumer and determines at what moments which risks should be controlled by the producers. Simultaneously, the legislation has to be flexible enough to be able to adapt quickly to any changes in risks, or in the way risks should be controlled. In the new system current meat inspection can easily be carried out by employees of the slaughter houses and is no longer a direct responsibility of the authorities. The authorities only demand certain safety levels and verify whether producers stick to these. Producers remain fully responsible for the safety and quality of their products, and fully liable in case of any damage to the consumers' health. However, it is to be expected that some EU Member-States miss the organizational and agricultural basis for a successful application of the new system. Consequences are that two parallel flows of meat and meat products may come to existence. One flow will exist of meat produced according to the new, and with respect to safety assurance, superior system. The other flow will consist of meat produced and inspected in the traditional way. However, this meat will contain all the flaws that required a revision of the system in the first place. This, and the fact that EU policy ordains that part-taking in an alternative meat inspection system should be voluntary, may very well result in a very slow start-up of the new system. One of the easiest solutions, however, would be to implement a decontamination step in the slaughtering process, provided that this is accompanied by strict codes of hygienic practices and good manufacturing practices. Not only would this lead to safer meat, but also result in the two separate flows of meat becoming one flow again as well as an easier to organize livestock production according to HACCP-principles.

A dosimetry study precisely outlining the heart substructure of left breast cancer patients using intensity-modulated radiation therapy.  

PubMed

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of delineating the substructure of the heart by using 64-slice spiral CT coronary angiography (CTA) in breast cancer patients who underwent left breast-conserving surgery, and to compare the dosimetric differences between the targets and organs at risk in the prone and supine positions in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) planning. From January to December 2011, ten patients who underwent left breast-conserving surgery were enrolled in this study. CTA was performed in both the supine and prone positions during the simulation, and conventional scanning without CTA was performed at the same time. Image registration was performed for paired image series using a commercially available planning system. In a conventional image series, the clinical target volume (CTV) of the whole breast, planning target volume (PTV), bilateral lungs (L-Lung, R-Lung), spinal cord, contralateral breast (R-Breast), and heart were delineated. In the CTA image series, the left ventricular (LV) and left anterior descending coronary arteries (LAD) and the planning risk volume (LAD-PRV) of the LAD (LAD with a 1 cm margin) were outlined. For each patient, two separate IMRT plans were developed for the supine and prone positions. A total of 20 plans were generated. The following indicators were compared: Dmean and D95 for the PTV; Dmean, V5, and V20 for the left lung; Dmean, V10, V20, V25, V30, and V40 for the heart and its substructures (LAD-PRV, LV); Dmean and V5 for the right lung; and Dmax and Dmean for the right breast. Using CTA to delineate the substructures of the heart is simple and straightforward. Plans for both the prone and supine positions reached the prescribed dose for the PTV without significant differences. Dose distributions were acceptable for both the prone and supine positions. However, the LAD-PRV, LV, heart, and L-Lung received smaller doses in the prone position plans than in the supine position plans. The Dmean values reduced by 445.83 cGy (p = 0.043), 575.00 cGy (p = 0.003), 402.00 cGy (p = 0.039), and 553.33 cGy (p = 0.004) in the LAD-PRV, LV, heart, and L-Lung. In addition, the V25 lessened 12.54% (p = 0.042) and 8.70% (p = 0.019) in the LV and heart, while the V20 was decreased 8.57% (p = 0.042), 15.21% (p = 0.026), 12.59% (p = 0.011), and 10.62% (p = 0.006) in the LAD-PRV, LV, heart, and L-Lung, respectively. Similarly, the V10 and V30 were reduced by 28.31% (p = 0.029) and 5.54% (p = 0.034) in the heart, while the V5 was cut back 27.86% (p = 0.031) in the L-Lung. For most Asian women with average-sized breasts after breast conserving treatment (BCT), prone positioning during IMRT radiation will reduce the dose to the ipsilateral lung, heart, and substructures of the heart, which may reduce the incidence of cardiovascular events after radiotherapy more than radiation therapy performed in a supine position. Using CTA to delineate the substructures of the heart is easy and intuitive. It is cost-effective and highly recommended for breast cancer IMRT. However, the dose-volume limits of the heart substructures remain to be determined. PMID:25207559

Cell surface and cell outline imaging in plant tissues using the backscattered electron detector in a variable pressure scanning electron microscope  

PubMed Central

Background Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) has been used for high-resolution imaging of plant cell surfaces for many decades. Most SEM imaging employs the secondary electron detector under high vacuum to provide pseudo-3D images of plant organs and especially of surface structures such as trichomes and stomatal guard cells; these samples generally have to be metal-coated to avoid charging artefacts. Variable pressure-SEM allows examination of uncoated tissues, and provides a flexible range of options for imaging, either with a secondary electron detector or backscattered electron detector. In one application, we used the backscattered electron detector under low vacuum conditions to collect images of uncoated barley leaf tissue followed by simple quantification of cell areas. Results Here, we outline methods for backscattered electron imaging of a variety of plant tissues with particular focus on collecting images for quantification of cell size and shape. We demonstrate the advantages of this technique over other methods to obtain high contrast cell outlines, and define a set of parameters for imaging Arabidopsis thaliana leaf epidermal cells together with a simple image analysis protocol. We also show how to vary parameters such as accelerating voltage and chamber pressure to optimise imaging in a range of other plant tissues. Conclusions Backscattered electron imaging of uncoated plant tissue allows acquisition of images showing details of plant morphology together with images of high contrast cell outlines suitable for semi-automated image analysis. The method is easily adaptable to many types of tissue and suitable for any laboratory with standard SEM preparation equipment and a variable-pressure-SEM or tabletop SEM. PMID:24135233

Outlining a selection procedure for Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolated from grape marc to improve fermentation process and distillate quality.  

PubMed

Nowadays grape marc represents one of the main by-product of winemaking. Many South Europe countries valorize this ligno-cellulosic waste through fermentation and distillation for industrial alcoholic beverage production. The storage of marcs is a crucial phase in the distillation process, due to the physicochemical transformations ascribed to microbial activity. Among the methods adopted by distillers to improve the quality of spirits, the use of selected yeasts has not been explored so far, therefore in this work we evaluated the selection criteria of Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains for grape marc fermentation. The proposed selection procedure included three steps: characterization of phenotypical traits, evaluation of selected strains on pasteurised grape marc at lab-scale (100 g) and pilot-scale fermentation (350 kg). This selection process was applied on 104 strains isolated from grape marcs of different origins and technological treatment. Among physiological traits, ?-glucosidase activity level as quality trait seems to be only partially involved in increasing varietal flavour. More effective in describing yeast impact on distillate quality is the ratio higher alcohols/esters that indicates strain ability to increase positive flavours. Finally, evaluating grape marc as source of selected yeasts, industrial treatment rather than varietal origin seems to shape strain technological and quality traits. PMID:25475330

Morphometric comparison of clavicle outlines from 3D bone scans and 2D chest radiographs: a shortlisting tool to assist radiographic identification of human skeletons.  

PubMed

This paper describes a computerized clavicle identification system primarily designed to resolve the identities of unaccounted-for U.S. soldiers who fought in the Korean War. Elliptical Fourier analysis is used to quantify the clavicle outline shape from skeletons and postero-anterior antemortem chest radiographs to rank individuals in terms of metric distance. Similar to leading fingerprint identification systems, shortlists of the top matching candidates are extracted for subsequent human visual assessment. Two independent tests of the computerized system using 17 field-recovered skeletons and 409 chest radiographs demonstrate that true-positive matches are captured within the top 5% of the sample 75% of the time. These results are outstanding given the eroded state of some field-recovered skeletons and the faintness of the 1950's photofluorographs. These methods enhance the capability to resolve several hundred cold cases for which little circumstantial information exists and current DNA and dental record technologies cannot be applied.

Portland outlines waste reduction program  

SciTech Connect

Plans for solid waste systems must reflect the preferences and values of the community they serve. The Metropolitan Service District (Metro), an elected regional government for the Portland (Oregon) area, has launched an ambitious effort to reduce the amount of solid waste being landfilled. The current solid waste system in the Portland area consists of: (1) a healthy private recycling program which is achieving a nearly 22% reduction of waste, (2) a private garbage collection system which is regulated by local governments (half franchised and half competitive), and (3) a regional disposal system operated by Metro which relies on landfilling. The system envisioned by the Metro Waste Reduction Program will add significant diversity to the disposal system, and will, by necessity, involve the collection, recycling and disposal systems in a coordinated partnership. The total volume of waste to be handled through the Waste Reduction Program is approximately 962,000 tons/year. Currently, 755,000 tons/year are disposed of in a landfill and the remainder is recycled through various methods.

Comparison between the Ability of Glasgow Coma Scale and Full Outline of Unresponsiveness Score to Predict the Mortality and Discharge Rate of Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Patients  

PubMed Central

Objective: Prediction of survival and mortality rates in costly environments such as the intensive care unit (ICU) is of great importance for the assessment of new treatments, resource consumption control, and improvement of quality control. This study aimed to determine the ability to predict mortality and discharge rate of patients using the FOUR score in the pediatric ICU (PICU) of Ali Ibn Abitalib Hospital, Zahedan and compare the results with those of Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS). Methods: This prospective study was conducted on 200 patients admitted to the PICU. Convenience purposive sampling was used. Research data was collected using the Full Outline of Unresponsiveness (FOUR) score and GCS using questionnaires. Obtained data was analyzed with SPSS 16 using descriptive statistics and correlation analyses. Findings: Of the 200 children admitted to the PICU, 71.5% and 28.5% were discharged and died, respectively. The inter-rater reliability for the FOUR score was good to excellent (weighted ?: eye, 0.72; respiration, 0.82; brainstem, 0.74; motor, 0.78), In terms of mortality and discharge prediction, logistic regression analyses (FOUR score = OR: 0.13; 95% CI: 0.06–0.29; P<0.001; GCS=OR: 2.49; 95% CI: 1.44–4.32; P<0.001) showed that the FOUR score is a good predictor for in-hospital mortality. Conclusion: Results indicated that the FOUR score is more capable than GCS in predicting the mortality and discharge of patients admitted to the PICU.

Genetic, clinical and pharmacological determinants of out-of-hospital cardiac arrest: rationale and outline of the AmsteRdam Resuscitation Studies (ARREST) registry  

PubMed Central

Introduction Out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) is a major public health problem. Recognising the complexity of the underlying causes of OHCA in the community, we aimed to establish the clinical, pharmacological, environmental and genetic factors and their interactions that may cause OHCA. Methods and analysis We set up a large-scale prospective community-based registry (AmsteRdam Resuscitation Studies, ARREST) in which we prospectively include all resuscitation attempts from OHCA in a large study region in the Netherlands in collaboration with Emergency Medical Services. Of all OHCA victims since June 2005, we prospectively collect medical history (through hospital and general practitioner), and current and previous medication use (through community pharmacy). In addition, we include DNA samples from OHCA victims with documented ventricular tachycardia/fibrillation during the resuscitation attempt since July 2007. Various study designs are employed to analyse the data of the ARREST registry, including case–control, cohort, case only and case-cross over designs. Ethics and dissemination We describe the rationale, outline and potential results of the ARREST registry. The design allows for a stable and reliable collection of multiple determinants of OHCA, while assuring that the patient, lay-caregiver or medical professional is not hindered in any way. Such comprehensive data collection is required to unravel the complex basis of OHCA. Results will be published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at relevant scientific symposia. PMID:25332818

Regulating air quality through the use of total daily maximum load standards for designated airsheds: A conceptual outline and analysis of meteorological constraints  

SciTech Connect

Congress enacted the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 in response to concerns that there was widespread noncompliance with air pollution control requirements. In seeking to address noncompliance, Congress turned to the successful National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting program enacted under the Clean Water Act as a model for a federally-mandated operating permit program. Congress` decision to turn to the Clean Water Act to resolve intractable problems in air quality permitting and enforcement suggests that Congress may turn to other Clean Water Act programs, such as the concept of regulating total maximum daily load (TMDL)--the maximum amount of pollutant that can be added to a given stream segment from all sources without violating water quality standards, to address continued nonattainment of the Clean Air Act`s national ambient air quality standards. This paper investigates the applying the TMDL model to airsheds, sets forth a conceptual outline for such a regulatory approach, and analyzes the meteorological and modeling constraints on successful implementation.

Groundwater Unit Outline with Culminating Project  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

With few exceptions, students in our community rely on groundwater for their drinking water and on septic tanks for their waste disposal. Few realize that what they put on the ground or down their toilets may end up in drinking water. The intent of this unit is to develop positive ways to change and enhance student attitudes, perceptions and knowledge bases regarding science and the environment and the role of both in all our lives. The unit provides opportunities for students: to collect real data on their own well water; to determine if and how the contaminants affect living systems including the humans; to use technology to solve problems in science as they collect and analyze data, develop multimedia presentations; to organize and disseminate information; to grasp the relevance of sciences by experiencing real world applications; to teach and demonstrate science to others; and to become advocates seeking to protect groundwaters by educating others.

[Chen Muhua outlines significance of planned parenthood].  

PubMed

This article emphasizes the significance of China's planned parenthood program to implement 1 child families and the relationship between population control and production. Planned parenthood personnel with the aid of extensive propaganda and education have increased the awareness of people for family planning. Current figures estimate that 4.36 million married couples of child bearing age have volunteered to have only 1 child. However, many people think that only 1 child families will create a high proportion of old people and a concomitant need to support them. PMID:12264004

Sexually transmitted diseases: priorities outlined for Africa.  

PubMed

Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) cause infertility in nearly half of all women in parts of Africa. In addition to the personal cost of divorce and ostracism that African women may face, the public health repercussions are both serious and widespread. To deal with this problem, 16 STD experts from Africa, Europe, and the US met to develop a priority list for research and control of STDs in Africa. The most common STDs in Africa are gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis. Other problems are papillomavirus, chancroid, lymphogranuloma, venereum, and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Africa's STD victims frequently do not go to doctors for treatment but instead buy antibiotics or get injections at a pharmacy. The infections often persist even though the symptoms may disappear. This self-treatment has contributed to the emergence of new strains of gonorrhea that resist penicillin and are difficult and expensive to treat. Additionally, the governments of Africa cannot afford to buy the more expensive antibiotics needed to combat the resistant strains of gonorrhea and require the assistance of international agencies to identify, treat, and control penicillin-resistant gonorrhea. Other costs are related to individuals' reduced ability to work. The magnitude of the problem is unknown because many STD victims are unaware they are infected and do not enter into official health care systems and statistics. The conference participants identified the need to integrate STD and family planning services as a priority. PMID:12268488

AGU Congressional Fellow Outlines Challenges for Scientists  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Science and technology were an essential part of all of the energy issues I worked on during my year as AGU Congressional Fellow in the office of U.S. senator Byron L. Dorgan (D-N. D.), chair of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development and a senior member of the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. During my fellowship year, which lasted from September 2009 through September 2010, I found that no one on Capitol Hill in Washington doubted the utility of science in addressing issues such as hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas production, the electrification of the transportation fleet, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and carbon capture and sequestration. However, during the year, two subjects were the focus of a broader questioning of science in Congress: “Climategate” and metrics to justify federal investment in research.

The Telescope: Outline of a Poetic History  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Amongst the first editions of Galileo's books, only the Saggiatore has on its frontispiece the image of the telescope. Indeed, the telescope is not pictured on the very emphatic frontispieces of the other books in which Galileo was presenting and defending the results achieved by his celestial observations, such as the Sidereus Nuncius. Many contemporary scientists denied the reliability of the telescope, and some even refused to look into the eyepiece. In the 16th and 17th century, the lenses, mirrors, and optical devices of extraordinary complexity did not have the main task of leading to the objective truth but obtaining the deformation of the reality by means of amazing effects of illusion. The Baroque art and literature had the aim of surprising, and the artists gave an enthusiastic support to the telescope. The poems in praise of Galileo's telescopic findings were quite numerous, including Adone composed by Giovanni Battista Marino, one of the most renowned poets of the time. The Galilean discoveries were actually accepted by the poets as ideologically neutral contributions to the "wonder" in spite they were rejected or even condemned by the scientists, philosophers, and theologians.

An outline of radiatively-driven cosmology  

E-print Network

A Big Bang universe consisting, before recombination, of H, D, 3He, 4He, 6Li, and 7Li ions, electrons, photons, and massless neutrinos, at closure density, with a galaxy-size perturbation spectrum but no large-scale structure, will evolve into the universe as we now observe it. Evolution during the first billion years is controlled by radiation. Globular clusters are formed by radiatively-driven implosions, galaxies are formed by radiatively triggered gravitational collapse of systems of globular clusters, and voids are formed by radiatively-driven expansion. After this period the strong radiation sources are exhausted and the universe has expanded to the point where further evolution is determined by gravity and universal expansion.

An outline of object-oriented philosophy.  

PubMed

This article summarises the principles of object-oriented philosophy and explains its similarities with, and differences from, the outlook of the natural sciences. Like science, the object-oriented position avoids the notion (quite common in philosophy) that the human-world relation is the ground of all others, such that scientific statements about the world would only be statements about the world as it is for humans. But unlike science, object-oriented metaphysics treats artificial, social, and fictional entities in the same way as natural ones, and also holds that the world can only be known allusively rather than directly.

Outline of a philosophy of anticipation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

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.

Intelligence is defined as that which produces successful behavior. Intelligence is assumed to result from natural selection. A model is proposed that integrates knowledge from research in both natural and artificial systems. The model consists of a hierarchical system architecture wherein: (1) control bandwidth decreases about an order of magnitude at each higher level, (2) perceptual resolution of spatial and temporal patterns contracts about an order-of-magnitude at each higher level, (3) goals expand in scope and planning horizons expand in space and time about an order-of-magnitude at each higher level, and (4) models of the world and memories of events expand their range in space and time by about an order-of-magnitude at each higher level. At each level, functional modules perform behavior generation (task decomposition planning and execution), world modeling, sensory processing, and value judgment. Sensory feedback control loops are closed at every level.

Epidemiology of malignant mesothelioma--an outline.  

PubMed

In the 1960s and 1970s, well designed case-referent studies put beyond doubt that exposure to airborne asbestos fibres was a cause of malignant mesothelioma. Some 35 cohort mortality studies in a large variety of industries during the 20-year period, 1974-1994, showed a wide range of outcomes, but in general that the risk was higher in exposures which included amphiboles rather than chrysotile alone. Real progress began, however, with discoveries along several lines: the link between pleural changes and mineralogy, the concept and importance of biopersistence, the developments in counting and typing mineral fibres in lung tissue, and data on amphibole mining in South Africa and Australia for comparison with that on chrysotile in Canada and Italy. This led to the recognition of the potential contamination in North America of chrysotile with tremolite. A survey in Canada in 1980-1988 and other surveys demonstrated that crocidolite, amosite, and tremolite could explain almost all cases of mesothelioma. Effective confirmation of this was finally achieved with data on vermiculite miners in Libby, Montana, in the years 1983-1999, where exposure was to tremolite-actinolite and/or other amphibole fibres alone.

Quantum Interactomics and Cancer Molecular Mechanisms: I. Report Outline  

E-print Network

Single cell interactomics in simpler organisms, as well as somatic cell interactomics in multicellular organisms, involve biomolecular interactions in complex signalling pathways that were recently represented in modular terms by quantum automata with ‘reversible behavior’ representing normal cell cycling and division. Other implications of such quantum automata, modular modeling of signaling pathways and cell differentiation during development are in the fields of neural plasticity and brain development leading to quantum-weave dynamic patterns and specific molecular processes underlying extensive memory, learning, anticipation mechanisms and the emergence of human consciousness during the early brain development in children. Cell interactomics is here represented for the first time as a mixture of ‘classical’ states that determine molecular dynamics subject to Boltzmann statistics and ‘steady-state’, metabolic (multi-stable) manifolds, together with ‘configuration’ spaces of metastable quant...

Outline of control practice of endemic fluorosis in China.  

PubMed

Endemic fluorosis is prevalent in China covering 29 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions. The endemically affected areas can be divided, according to the sources of fluoride, into three types: high fluoride water, pollution from coal burning, and drinking brick tea in excess. Since the 1960's, several pilot surveys of the disease have been made and control programmes carried out in some of the areas. An Expert Consultation Committee on Endemic Fluorosis Control of the Ministry of Public Health was formally established in 1979. A national survey programme and series of working criteria for the disease were drawn up at the First National Congress of Endemic Fluorosis Control in 1981. Under the Central Government of China, administrative organizations and institutions concerned at all levels have been set up, forming a nation-wide network of control. Cooperation and coordination among such departments as health, water conservancy, geology and finance have been achieved in the planning and implementation of control programmes. Since 1980, many projects for improving drinking water quality through de-fluoridation have been completed. At the same time, new methods and technologies for improving stove and grain baking have become widely used in some of the areas where environmental fluoride pollution exists from burning coal. After all the control programmes had been introduced, the incidence of the illness was reduced with some patients making a complete recovery. PMID:8578341

Morphogenetic fields: outlining the alternatives and enlarging the context.  

PubMed

Several alternative properties which we define as deterministic or field ones are formulated and analyzed in their relations to the realms of morphogenesis and biophoton emission. In spite of all the differences between these two groups of events both of them share the properties of non-additivity, delocalization, self-focusing and several others which we relate to the field phenomena. To a large extent, the field properties of the biological systems are associated with a set of oscillations of different time periods. We suggest that even such deterministic events as, for example, a ligand-receptor coupling are acting, within an activated cell, as the switches and/or modulators of its field properties.

[Proper use of apixaban: an outline for clinical practice].  

PubMed

Apixaban is a direct inhibitor of coagulation factor Xa. Superior efficacy over aspirin and antivitamin K has been shown in the prevention of stroke and systemic embolism during non-valvular atrial fibrillation with a more favorable safety profile, even though the risk of hemorrhage cannot be ignored, considering its mechanism of action. The recommended dose is 5mg twice daily which can be reduced to 2.5mg depending on the individual risk. Apixaban is also indicated for the treatment of venous thromboembolism but reimbursement has not yet been accepted in France for this indication. As with all direct oral anticoagulants, no routine biological monitoring is required, nevertheless their use may have an impact on all coagulation tests, eventually hampering interpretation. In particular clinical circumstances where a measure of anticoagulant efficacy is deemed necessary, specific assay of anti-Xa activity is appropriate, the result being expressed as concentration of the anticoagulant used. It is therefore necessary to state the name of the medicine for which the assay is requested. With these new anticoagulants, management of hemorrhagic events can be more difficult due to the lack of a specific antidote. Pro-hemostatic substances have exhibited efficacy in animal models but results are still insufficiently documented in clinical practice. Local or locoregional hemostasis measurements, when possible, are an essential factor in the treatment of hemorrhagic events. PMID:25451020

Project Integration Architecture: Formulation of Dimensionality in Semantic Parameters Outline  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

One of several key elements of the Project Integration Architecture (PIA) is the formulation of parameter objects which convey meaningful semantic information. The infusion of measurement dimensionality into such objects is an important part of that effort since it promises to automate the conversion of units between cooperating applications and, thereby, eliminate the mistakes that have occasionally beset other systems of information transport. This paper discusses the conceptualization of dimensionality developed as a result of that effort.

Outline of a General Theory of Behavior and Brain Coordination  

PubMed Central

Much evidence suggests that dynamic laws of neurobehavioral coordination are sui generis: they deal with collective properties that are repeatable from one system to another and emerge from microscopic dynamics but may not (even in principle) be deducible from them. Nevertheless, it is useful to try to understand the relationship between different levels while all the time respecting the autonomy of each. We report a program of research that uses the theoretical concepts of coordination dynamics and quantitative measurements of simple, well-defined experimental model systems to explicitly relate neural and behavioral levels of description in human beings. Our approach is both top-down and bottom-up and aims at ending up in the same place: top-down to derive behavioral patterns from neural fields, and bottom-up to generate neural field patterns from bidirectional coupling between astrocytes and neurons. Much progress can be made by recognizing that the two approaches —reductionism and emergentism— are complementary. A key to understanding is to couch the coordination of very different things —from molecules to thoughts— in the common language of coordination dynamics. PMID:23084845

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.

Strangeness Physics with CLAS at Jefferson Lab  

SciTech Connect

We review recent developments in strangeness photo- and electro- production off the proton and neutron, as investigated using CLAS in Hall B at Jefferson Lab. By measuring sufficient spin observables one can decompose the reaction mechanism into elementary amplitudes. We discuss progress toward this end in recent data from CLAS, including cross sections and spin observables. We next discuss new results on the mass distribution of the Lambda(1405), which shows signs of being a composite meson-baryon object of mixed isospin. The work on other hyperons such as the Xi resonances will be mentioned, and future prospects for the CLAS program outlined.
