Something the Lord Made.  

PubMed

When Alfred Blalock (1899-1965), the pioneer Hopkins surgical professor, saw the pulmonary artery suturing technique that his laboratory technician, Vivien Thomas (1910-1985), had just performed in a dog, his level of astonishment was so high that he expressed, "Vivien, this looks like Something the Lord Made." In all his years of practice, Dr. Blalock had never seen anything like it before. The level of perfection was so superior to other works that it could not be considered to be of human descent. The surgical technician far exceeded anyone else in the surgical department. In due time, he taught surgical residents and faculty the exquisite details of the laborious vascular suturing techniques. Thomas and Blalock learned to respect and appreciate each other's work. Thomas, the advanced student, and Blalock, the noted teacher, learned to understand one another and recognize their unique abilities. With the support and theoretical advice of his mentor, Thomas proceeded in the old Hunterian Laboratory to solve the problem of the Blue Baby heart disease, also known as Tetralogy of Fallot. The fruits of Thomas's work were put to a test on November 29, 1944, when surgeon-in-chief Blalock took baby Eileen to room 706 to perform the first pulmonary artery to subclavian artery shunt in humans. The results were especially good, and baby Eileen recovered satisfactorily. It was obvious that history had been made, and Thomas and Blalock were the creators, the heroes of this extraordinary feat. They had participated together in Something the Lord Made. PMID:17454391

A simple procedure for calculating the mean and maximum bed stress under wave and current conditions for rough turbulent flow based on Soulsby and Clarke's (2005) method  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the marine environment, particularly on continental shelves, the processes of wave dissipation and sediment transport depend crucially on the bed shear stress. When waves and currents are superimposed the bed shear stress exhibits non-linear behaviour such that it is insufficient to simply sum vectorially the wave-alone and current-alone stress components. Soulsby and Clarke (2005) [Bed shear-stresses under combined waves and currents on smooth and rough beds. Report TR 137. HR Wallingford, Wallingford, UK, 22 pp.] developed a simple analytical, non-iterative method for calculating the mean and maximum bed shear stress in combined wave and current flows. For rough turbulent flow their method produces non-linearities in the mean and maximum bed stress that are consistent with those measured, while it under-predicts the non-linearities in the bed stresses in comparison with model predictions. Here their method is generalised such that it may be used to predict non-linearities in the bed stresses that are consistent with either the measurements or the models, for the case of rough turbulent flow. Also the Soulsby and Clarke method relies on the fact that the depth-averaged current is already known. However, in the field it is often the case that the current at a particular height above the bed is measured, so here their method is reposed in terms of a current measured at a particular height. A MATLAB script is provided for this modified Soulsby and Clarke method, such that either strong or weak non-linearity can be included in the wave-current interaction and the current can be input at a particular height or as a depth average.

Lord Kelvin's atmospheric electricity measurements  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lord Kelvin (William Thomson), one of the greatest Victorian scientists, made a substantial but little-recognised contribution to geophysics through his work on atmospheric electricity. He developed sensitive instrumentation for measuring the atmospheric electric field, including invention of a portable electrometer, which made mobile measurements possible for the first time. Kelvin's measurements of the atmospheric electric field in 1859, made during development of the portable electrometer, can be used to deduce the substantial levels of particulate pollution blown over the Scottish island of Arran from the industrial mainland. Kelvin was also testing the electrometer during the largest solar flare ever recorded, the "Carrington event" in the late summer of 1859. Subsequently, Lord Kelvin also developed a water dropper sensor, and employed photographic techniques for "incessant recording" of the atmospheric electric field, which led to the long series of measurements recorded at UK observatories for the remainder of the 19th and much of the 20th century. These data sets have been valuable in both studies of historical pollution and cosmic ray effects on atmospheric processes.

In this particular study the hypothesis that UV radiation might play a role in microheterotrophic microbial processes by direct interactions with dissolved organic matter (DOM) is examined. Two independent pathways are proposed: partial photolytic degradation or alteration of refractory DOM resulting in a supply of readily available organic substrates for bacterial metabolism; and complete photolytic degradation of DOM. The study documents important photochemical-DOM reactions in the coastal habitats of the Antarctic Peninsula. 8 refs., 2 figs.

Palmer LTER: Hydrogen peroxide in the Palmer LTER region. I. An introduction  

SciTech Connect

The Palmer long-term ecological research (LTER) program is an coordinated multi-investigator and interdisciplinary study of an ice-dominated, high-latitude marine ecosystem. The study of hydrogen peroxide dynamics in this habitat was inspired by two ecological applications: it has been suggested that hydrogen peroxide concentrations can be used as a tracer for vertical advection in surface ocean waters. To the extent that vertical mixing is a critical variable in determining the production of southern oceans ecosystems, this information is fundamental. In addition, because hydrogen peroxide is a common intermediate of photochemical reactions of oxygen with organic compounds, it may provide a convenient analytical procedure for assessing photolytic alteration of dissolved organic matter (DOM) in sea water. Recent studies suggest that photochemical processes may play a previous unrecognized role in the global carbon cycle. These studies focus on evaluating the magnitude of these potential photochemical processes in considering the biological cycling of DOM. 21 refs.

The Sensitivity of the Palmer Drought Severity Index and Palmer's Z-Index to their Calibration Coefficients Including Potential Evapotranspiration.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) is routinely made available by NOAA for operational use, and it has also been calculated across the United States on a historical basis back to 1895 (Karl et al., 1983). Traditionally, the coefficients used in the calculation of the PDSI have been based on an anomalously hot and dry period across much of the United States (1931-60). By changing the base period used to calibrate the coefficients, the magnitude and the sign of the PDSI change significantly in many areas of the United States. Often the changes are larger than those that occur when the potential evapotranspiration is forced to a constant equal to the long-term monthly mean potential evapotranspiration. This sensitivity to base period calibration has important implications in the interpretation of operational or hindcast values of the PDSI for forest fire danger and other applications. The less frequently used Palmer moisture anomaly index (Z-index) is much less sensitive to changes in the calibration periods, and also has some desirable characteristics which may make it preferable to the PDSI for some agricultural and forest fire applications, i.e., it is more responsive to short-term moisture anomalies.

Applying the Palmer Drought Severity Index to regional climate models  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Drought is one of the climate states that are most difficult to analyse scientifically. Amongst other things it depends on (lack of) precipitation, evapotranspiration, and water holding capacity of the soil at a given place, and how the two first parameters vary with time. One of the most used parameters to evaluate the occurrence and severity of drought is the Palmer Drought Severity Index. We have calculated the Self-Calibrated Palmer Drought Severity Index (SC-PDSI) of the output of some of the regional climate models included in the Ensembles data base covering the area of Europe, in the case where the climate models are forced by the real weather in the period 1960 to 2000. The climate models provide precipitation data as well as the data needed to calculate the potential evapotranspiration in an unbroken time series on a regular grid in the area covered by the regional climate model. To calculate the evapotranspiration we use the Penman-Monteith equation following the guidelines of FAO of the United Nations. The regularity of the output of the climate models makes the output ideal for determining the time-varying SC-PDSI over the entire model area and the entire period. We have compared the simulations of the occurrence of meteorological drought made by the SC-PDSI with independent data of hydrological drought, which has become available with the drought analyses, that has been made as part of the WATCH project. This allows us to evaluate if the predictions of the SC-PDSI are coherent with some of the direct observations of drought, and thus if the SC-PDSI calculated from climate model data gives a good representation of the real occurrence of droughts.

Relational operants: processes and implications: a response to Palmer's review of Relational Frame Theory.  

PubMed Central

Palmer has recently criticized Relational Frame Theory (RFT) on the grounds that it has developed data in search of a principle. In this reply, we show that he has done so by attacking fundamental concepts within behavior analysis itself, including the functional nature of an operant and contingencies of reinforcement as a behavioral process. His claim that RFT appeals to new behavioral principles to explain the development of relational operants is shown to be incorrect: As with any operant, RFT appeals to a history of contacted consistencies in contingencies across multiple ex-emplars to explain them. New principles only emerge later as a logically necessary extension of such operants if they exist--a view that Palmer failed to address or appreciate. Palmer's desire to see the use of methods other than matching-to-sample is proper but already largely satisfied in the empirical literature on RFT. We show Palmer's defense of Skinner's definition of verbal behavior to be illogical and unresponsive to the empirical challenge behavior analysis faces. Palmer's alternative common sense mediational associationistic account is another in more than a century of such accounts, all of which have failed empirically. At its root, Palmer's criticism is based on a mechanistic philosophy that is hostile to a traditional functional behavior analytic approach.

Speciation with gene flow on Lord Howe Island  

PubMed Central

Understanding the processes underlying the origin of species is a fundamental goal of biology. It is widely accepted that speciation requires an interruption of gene flow between populations: ongoing gene exchange is considered a major hindrance to population divergence and, ultimately, to the evolution of new species. Where a geographic barrier to reproductive isolation is lacking, a biological mechanism for speciation is required to counterbalance the homogenizing effect of gene flow. Speciation with initially strong gene flow is thought to be extremely rare, and few convincing empirical examples have been published. However, using phylogenetic, karyological, and ecological data for the flora of a minute oceanic island (Lord Howe Island, LHI), we demonstrate that speciation with gene flow may, in fact, be frequent in some instances and could account for one in five of the endemic plant species of LHI. We present 11 potential instances of species divergence with gene flow, including an in situ radiation of five species of Coprosma (Rubiaceae, the coffee family). These results, together with the speciation of Howea palms on LHI, challenge current views on the origin of species diversity.

The M51 mystery: Lord Rosse, Robinson, South and the discovery of spiral structure in 1845  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In April 1845 Lord Rosse discovered the spiral structure of M51 with his 72-inch reflector at Birr Castle. Already in March the new telescope had been pointed at the object in Canes Venatici, later nicknamed the 'Whirlpool Nebula'. Two experienced astronomers were present: Sir James South and the Reverend Thomas Romney Robin-son. The problem is that there is no record that they noticed the spiral structure, even though it was immediately seen by Lord Rosse the next month. The solution presented here is based on evidentiary facts, highlighting the nineteenth century astronomical praxis. Focal points are bias, fantasy and a sometimes fatal conspiracy of eye and brain.

Column ozone measurements from Palmer Station, Antarctica: Variations during the Austral Springs of 1988 and 1989  

SciTech Connect

The National Science Foundation scanning spectroradiometer at Palmer Station, Antarctica (64{degree}-46{prime}S, 64{degree}04{prime}W), provides hourly ground-based measurements of solar ultraviolet (UV) irradiance. In addition to defining the UV radiation environment of the region, these measurements allow the derivation of the column density of atmospheric ozone above the station nearly every daylight hour. This hourly time resolution, not generally available from other methods of monitoring Antarctic ozone abundances, enables the detection of large and rapid changes in total column ozone and UV surface irradiance associated with the dynamics of the polar vortex. Column ozone abundance is derived from a ratio of measured irradiances at 300 and 313.5 nanometers (nm) by means of theoretical calculation of this ratio as a function of total ozone amount. Noontime ozone abundances over Palmer Station obtained from this method agree with those obtained by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument aboard Nimbus 7 to within about 10% throughout the austral spring of 1988. Ozone recovery at Palmer Station, associated with the breakup of the polar vortex as indicated by TOMS satellite ozone observations, occurred rapidly within a 24-hour period beginning in midafternoon on November 15. Over the Antarctic Peninsula, the 1989 ozone depletion was slightly greater than in 1988, the minimum noontime ozone abundances over Palmer Station as measured by the spectroradiometer being 194 and 166 Dobson units for October 14, 1988, and October 14, 1989, respectively. The 1989 ozone depletion however ended by November 5 over the Antarctic Peninsula, 10 days earlier than the 1988 event.

We develop a generalization of the Thouless-Anderson-Palmer (TAP) mean-field approach of disorder physics, which makes the method applicable to the computation of approximate averages in probabilistic models for real data. In contrast to the conventional TAP approach, where the knowledge of the distribution of couplings between the random variables is required, our method adapts to the concrete set of couplings.

Mechanism of resistance of evolved glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri).  

PubMed

Evolved glyphosate resistance in weedy species represents a challenge for the continued success and utility of glyphosate-resistant crops. Glyphosate functions by inhibiting the plant enzyme 5-enolpyruvylshikimate-3-phosphate synthase (EPSPS). The resistance mechanism was determined in a population of glyphosate-resistant Palmer amaranth from Georgia (U.S.). Within this population, glyphosate resistance correlates with increases in (a) genomic copy number of EPSPS, (b) expression of the EPSPS transcript, (c) EPSPS protein level, and (d) EPSPS enzymatic activity. Dose response results from the resistant and an F(2) population suggest that between 30 and 50 EPSPS genomic copies are necessary to survive glyphosate rates between 0.5 and 1.0 kg ha(-1). These results further confirm the role of EPSPS gene amplification in conferring glyphosate resistance in this population of Palmer amaranth. Questions remain related to how the EPSPS amplification initially occurred and the occurrence of this mechanism in other Palmer amaranth populations and other glyphosate-resistant species.

Continuation of the New England Orogen, Australia, beneath the Queensland Plateau and Lord Howe rise  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Greywacke, argillite, greyschist and hypabyssal igneous rocks have been obtained from an Ocean Drilling Program core on the Queensland Plateau and from xenoliths in a volcanic breccia dredged from the crest of the Lord Howe Rise. Low to intermediate detrital quartz contents, 260-240 Ma K-Ar ages, and only moderately radiogenic Sr and Nd isotope compositions, suggest a correlation with the New England Orogen of eastern Australia, rather than with Australia's Lachlan Orogen or other adjacent geological provinces. Our results indicate that the New England Orogen terranes continue towards New Zealand at least as far as the southern Lord Howe Rise. The projected offshore boundaries of the major east Australian orogens are now known with more confidence, and do not appear to require any major cross-orogen offsets.

Episodes of reef growth at Lord Howe Island, the southernmost reef in the southwest Pacific  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lord Howe Island lies at the present latitudinal limit to reef growth in the Pacific and preserves evidence of episodes of reef development over the Late Quaternary. A modern fringing reef flanks the western shore of Lord Howe Island, enclosing a Holocene lagoon, and Late Quaternary eolianites veneer the island. Coral-bearing beach and shallow-water calcarenites record a sea level around 2 3 m above present during the Last Interglacial. No reefs or subaerial carbonate deposits occur on, or around, Balls Pyramid, 25 km to the south. The results of chronostratigraphic studies of the modern Lord Howe Island reef and lagoon indicate prolific coral production during the mid-Holocene, but less extensive coral cover during the late Holocene. Whereas the prolific mid-Holocene reefs might appear to reflect warmer sea-surface temperatures, the pattern of dates and reef growth history are similar to those throughout the Great Barrier Reef and across much of the Indo-Pacific and are more likely correlated with availability of suitable substrate. Little direct evidence of a Last Interglacial reef is now preserved, and the only evidence for older periods of reef establishment comes from clasts of coral in a well-cemented limestone unit below a coral that has been dated to the Last Interglacial age in a core at the jetty. However, a massive reef structure occurs near the centre of the wide shelf around Lord Howe Island, veneered with Holocene coralline algae. Its base is 40 50 m deep and it rises to water depths of less than 30 m. This fossil reef is several times more extensive than either Holocene or Last Interglacial reefs appear to have been. Holocene give-up reef growth is inferred during the postglacial transgression, but an alternative interpretation is that this is a much older landform, indicating reefs that were much more extensive than modern reefs at this marginal site.

[Raoul Palmer and the coelio-surgical adventure from 1940 to 1995].  

PubMed

Raoul Palmer born in Paris in 1904 from Swedish parents with a humanistic tradition and a non-conformist spirit obtained a scientific degree (licence ès-sciences) before starting his medical studies. Attracted by experimental surgery he was at the head of Fiessinger's laboratory before becoming demonstrator of gynecology at the Hôpital Broca in the services of Proust, Brocq, Macquot, Funck-Brentano and Huguier. As a surgeon specialized in sterility since 1935 but conscient as to the difficulty of making a prognosis without being informed of the extent of the lesions, he invented pre-operatory exploratory coelioscopy in 1943. This new technique allowed him to go further with the sampling of ovocytes, electrocoagulation of the uterine horns, punction of cysts, adhesiolysis ... And this was only a beginning for this method practised for the first time in 1901 by Kelling in the dog and by Jacobaeus (1912) in man but which remained confidential. In spite of neighbouring hostility, Palmer's disciples have widened the limits of this method: digestive adhesiolysis, appendectomy in 1983. In 1987 Philippe Mouret realized the first cholecystectomy and opened the way to more complex surgical operations so much that some surgeons wonder if laparotomy is still to be performed to-day. With a premonitory will, Palmer has fought all along his medical career against clandestine abortion while advising in spite of the Ordre des Médecins the legalization of voluntary pregnancy and freedom for voluntary sterilization. With over 800 international publications he appears as a visionary creator and a militating humanist. PMID:11624883

Distribution of Acanthaster planci at Lord Howe Island, the southern-most Indo-Pacific reef  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lord Howe Island, at 31°33'S, supports the southern-most coral reef in the Indo-Pacific region, located approximately 150 and 200 km south of Elizabeth and Middleton Reefs and 1000 km south of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). Systematic SCUBA searches in 1987 indicated that Acanthaster planci was present at 3 of 10 sites surveyed, at densities of up to 5 individuals ha-1. Further surveys in 1989 indicated that the population was increasing, with densities of 20 46 ha-1 recorded from 7 of 13 sites. The size structures of the 1987 and 1989 populations were suggestive of annual recruitment since 1985. Individuals larger than 25 cm diameter were gravid during both surveys, raising the possibility that the population may be self-seeding. Alternatively, the population may be maintained by larvae dispersed in the East Australian Current from the southern GBR or in eddies from Elizabeth and Middleton Reefs. This study provides the first records for distribution of 7 species of scleractinian coral at Lord Howe Is. Reef.

The original images were remeasured to obtain new data sets using the latest version of MPO Canopus photometry software, analysis tools, and revised techniques for linking observing runs that ranged from several days to several weeks. Moderately to significantly different results were found for: 301 Bavaria, 436 Patricia, 507 Laodica, 549 Jessonda, 585 Bilkis, 596 Scheila, 607 Jenny, 630 Euphemia, 875 Nymphe, 912 Maritima, 926 Imhilde, 1177 Gonnessia, 1203 Nanna, 1333 Cevenola, 1679 Nevanlinna, 1796 Riga, 2000 Herschel, 2266 Tchaikovsky, 2460 Mitlincoln, 2494 Inge, 3915 Fukushima, 3940 Larion, 4091 Lowe, 4209 Briggs, 4431 Holeungholee, 4690 Strasbourg, 5390 Huichiming, 5940 Feliksobolev, (16558) 1991 VQ2, (18108) 2000 NT5, and (45646) 2000 EE45. This is expected to be the final paper in a current series that has examined results obtained during the initial years of the asteroid lightcurve program at PDO.

Palmer-Chalker correlations in the XY pyrochlore antiferromagnet Er2Sn2O7  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Er2Sn2O7 is considered, together with Er2Ti2O7, as a realization of the XY antiferromagnet on the pyrochlore lattice. We present magnetization measurements confirming that Er2Sn2O7 does not order down to 100 mK but exhibits a freezing below 200 mK. Our neutron scattering experiments evidence the strong XY character of the Er3+moment and point out the existence of short-range correlations in which the magnetic moments are in peculiar configurations, the Palmer-Chalker states, predicted theoretically for an XY pyrochlore antiferromagnet with dipolar interactions. Our estimation of the Er2Sn2O7 parameters confirm the role of the latter interactions on top of relatively weak and isotropic exchange couplings.

Effects of temperature anomalies on the Palmer Drought Severity Index in the central United States  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of temperature and precipitation effects on the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI). Both theoretical and observational analyses were applied to separate and compare temperature and precipitation effects on PDSI. The results showed that because of the dependence of PDSI on the 'climatologically appropriate rainfall', which is a function of time and varies with surface air temperature, the PDSI can be equally affected by temperature and precipitation, when both have similar magnitudes of anomalies. Calculations using observational data further illustrated the temperature influence on PDSI in different climate regions in the central United States. The temperature effect on PDSI complicates the usage of the index in interpreting precipitation anomalies and its application in inferring precipitation variations, particularly from reconstructed PDSI.

Impacts of a population outbreak of the urchin Tripneustes gratilla amongst Lord Howe Island coral communities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Subtidal reef surveys within the Lord Howe Island Marine Park revealed that populations of the sea urchin Tripneustes gratilla underwent an explosive outbreak in some regions of the park over a 2-year period. This urchin was rare or absent during 2006 surveys at 33 sites studied, but at sites off northern Lord Howe Island in 2008, densities averaged >1.3 m-2. Dramatic increases in T. gratilla density (exceeding 4 m-2) were observed at some sites. We quantify community-level impacts of T. gratilla using ‘before-after’ and ‘control-impact’ data. Zones closed to fishing exhibited similar increases in T. gratilla density to zones open to fishing. Although not previously reported as a keystone species affecting coral habitat, T. gratilla was found to possess an ‘ecosystem engineer’ function. Outbreak sites were characterised by significant declines in cover of foliose algae, including red algae, which decreased from 11.2% in 2006 compared to 2.5% in 2008. Brown foliose algae also declined at sites where T. gratilla outbreaks occurred, averaging 20.4% in 2006 compared to 1.8% in 2008. By contrast, crustose coralline algal cover increased at sites where high T. gratilla densities were observed, from 2.7% in 2006 to an average of 42.6% in 2008. We found no clear indication of impacts on sessile invertebrates or flow-on effects to other levels of the food web, with no significant change in coral cover or densities of mobile invertebrates or fish populations associated with the T. gratilla outbreak.

A large population of king crabs in Palmer Deep on the west Antarctic Peninsula shelf and potential invasive impacts  

PubMed Central

Lithodid crabs (and other skeleton-crushing predators) may have been excluded from cold Antarctic continental shelf waters for more than 14 Myr. The west Antarctic Peninsula shelf is warming rapidly and has been hypothesized to be soon invaded by lithodids. A remotely operated vehicle survey in Palmer Deep, a basin 120 km onto the Antarctic shelf, revealed a large, reproductive population of lithodids, providing the first evidence that king crabs have crossed the Antarctic shelf. DNA sequencing and morphology indicate the lithodid is Neolithodes yaldwyni Ahyong & Dawson, previously reported only from Ross Sea waters. We estimate a N. yaldwyni population density of 10 600 km?2 and a population size of 1.55 × 106 in Palmer Deep, a density similar to lithodid populations of commercial interest around Alaska and South Georgia. The lithodid occurred at depths of more than 850 m and temperatures of more than 1.4°C in Palmer Deep, and was not found in extensive surveys of the colder shelf at depths of 430–725 m. Where N. yaldwyni occurred, crab traces were abundant, megafaunal diversity reduced and echinoderms absent, suggesting that the crabs have major ecological impacts. Antarctic Peninsula shelf waters are warming at approximately 0.01°C yr?1; if N. yaldwyni is currently limited by cold temperatures, it could spread up onto the shelf (400–600 m depths) within 1–2 decades. The Palmer Deep N. yaldwyni population provides an important model for the potential invasive impacts of crushing predators on vulnerable Antarctic shelf ecosystems.

The Thouless Anderson Palmer equation for an analogue neural network with temporally fluctuating white synaptic noise  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Effects of synaptic noise on the retrieval process of associative memory neural networks are studied from the viewpoint of neurobiological and biophysical understanding of information processing in the brain. We investigate the statistical mechanical properties of stochastic analogue neural networks with temporally fluctuating synaptic noise, which is assumed to be white noise. Such networks, in general, defy the use of the replica method, since they have no energy concept. The self-consistent signal-to-noise analysis (SCSNA), which is an alternative to the replica method for deriving a set of order parameter equations, requires no energy concept and thus becomes available in studying networks without energy functions. Applying the SCSNA to stochastic networks requires the knowledge of the Thouless-Anderson-Palmer (TAP) equation which defines the deterministic networks equivalent to the original stochastic ones. The study of the TAP equation which is of particular interest for the case without energy concept is very less, while it is closely related to the SCSNA in the case with energy concept. This paper aims to derive the TAP equation for networks with synaptic noise together with a set of order parameter equations by a hybrid use of the cavity method and the SCSNA.

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) as an indicator of soil moisture  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Detailed observation of soil moisture time series has of practical importance either in strategic preparing of researches or in professional planning. Meteorological-related spatial and temporal connections of soil moisture were investigated on monthly Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) time series of five meteorological stations in Eastern Hungary (Miskolc, Ny?´regyháza, Debrecen, Kecskemét and Szeged) for the period 1901 1999. The calculated PDSI values were compared with the soil moisture content of the upper one meter soil layer. The measured soil moisture time series come from the authors ([Dunkel, Z., 1994; Lambert, K., et al., 1993 (in Hungarian)]). Both the used soil moisture time series and the Pálfai-index, expressing numerically daily hydrological extremes ([Pálfai, I.,1991]), confirmed our result independently of each other according to which PDSI is a good indicator of the soil moisture fluctuations in the upper one meter soil layer of the Great Hungarian Plain. On the basis of the regression coefficients of the linear connection, the index values can be expressed in physical unit of the water content in the upper one meter soil layer, as well. As a result of our examinations, the index has favourable statistical features; namely, the distribution of monthly samples is normal. Analysing spatial and temporal connections of the varied hydrometeorological relations of the selected region, average spatial and strong temporal correlations were established and these results are functions of intra-annual variability of precipitation.

Cloud-mediated enhancement of cloud condensation nuclei at Palmer Station: A natural antigreenhouse mechanism  

SciTech Connect

A case study of cloud-mediated production of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) recorded by the Fukuta-Saxena CCN Spectrometer at Palmer Station (64{degrees}46`S 64{degrees}05{prime}W), Antarctica in January and February, 1994 is presented here. Four instances of CCN bursts occurred (17, 19, and 20 January and 7 February 1994) when cloud base decended to the surface and dissipated under prevailing meteorological conditions. The most spectacular event occurred on 20 January when the CCN concentration was enhanced by a factor of four at 0.25 percent supersaturation (with respect to water) compared to the pre-event concentration at 1.25 percent supersaturation, the corresponding enhancement was by a factor of seven. This indicated a larger production of aerosol particles in smaller size ranges. The event lasted for over 15 hours. The CCN activity spectrum during the event resembled the ones that are typical of our previous measurements in the urban plume of St. Louis and Denver. The phenomenon is also significant in evaluating natural causes of antigreenhouse mechanisms. 13 refs., 3 figs.

Quantum-Mechanical Variant of the Thouless-Anderson-Palmer Equation for Error-Correcting Codes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Statistical mechanics of information has been applied to problems in various research topics of information science and technology [1],[2]. Among those research topics, error-correcting code is one of the most developed subjects. In the research field of error-correcting codes, Nicolas Sourlas showed that the so-called convolutional codes can be constructed by spin glass with infinite range p-body interactions and the decoded message should be corresponded to the ground state of the Hamiltonian [3]. Ruján pointed out that the bit error can be suppressed if one uses finite temperature equilibrium states as the decoding result, instead of the ground state [4], and the so-called Bayes-optimal decoding at some specific condition was proved by Nishimori [5] and Nishimori and Wong [6]. Kabashima and Saad succeeded in constructing more practical codes, namely low-density parity check (LDPC) codes by using the infinite range spin glass model with finite connectivities [7]. They used the so-called TAP (Thouless-Anderson-Palmer) equations to decode the original message for a given parity check.

EDITORIAL: Richard Palmer: celebrating 37 years with Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter Richard Palmer: celebrating 37 years with Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is with a great deal of both happiness and sadness that I have to announce that we are losing one of the real strengths of the Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter (JPCM). Dr Richard Palmer, our Senior Publisher, announced his retirement, and this issue marks the first without his involvement. Of course, we are happy that he will get to enjoy his retirement, but we are sad to lose such a valuable member of our team. Richard first started work at IOP Publishing in March 1971 as an Editorial Assistant with Journal of Physics B: Atomic and Molecular Physics. After a few months, he transferred to Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics. During his first year, he was sent on a residential publishing training course and asked to sign an undertaking to stay at IOP Publishing for at least two years. Although Richard refused to sign, as he did not want to commit himself, he has remained with the journal since then. The following year, the Assistant Editor of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, Malcolm Haines, walked out without notice in order to work on his family vineyard in France, and Richard stepped into the breach. In those days, external editors had a much more hands-on role in IOP Publishing and he had to travel to Harwell to be interviewed by Alan Lidiard, the Honorary Editor of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, before being given the job of Assistant Editor permanently. I am told that in those days the job consisted mainly of editing and proofreading and peer review. There was no journal development work. At some point in the early 1980s, production and peer review were split into separate departments and Richard then headed a group of journals consisting of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics, Semiconductor Science and Technology, Superconductor Science and Technology, Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion, and later Nanotechnology and Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering. Under the new structure, journal development became an increasingly important part of his job. At about the same time, Richard was also asked to take over running Reports on Progress in Physics, which up to then had been done by the head of the IOP Journals Department, Kurt Paulus. In 1989, Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics remerged to form JPCM. Since then, Richard has gradually shed his other journal responsibilities, except for Reports on Progress in Physics, to build up JPCM. He has worked closely with four Editors-in-Chief of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics, five of JPCM, five of Reports on Progress in Physics and about ten of other journals, and attended approximately 300 Editorial Board meetings. I should say that he has made my own tenure at Editor-in-Chief an easy task to learn and take on, and has been a major guiding light in the development of the journal. In 2006, Richard was honoured by the award of a Member of the British Empire (MBE) for services to science publishing. Those of us on the board were particularly pleased about this, as one is not always recognized for the effort they expend, and this award was certainly due for Richard. We are going to miss Richard a great deal, but are happy that he will remain on a part time basis to help our new Publisher, Dr Lucy Smith, and the rest of us through the transition. His retirement leaves us with a huge hole that we will have to work extremely hard to fill. Speaking for the various boards, and especially the executive board, I want to wish Richard the very best in his retirement.

Two asteroids showed indications of being a binary asteroid. For the Hungaria asteroid 4217 Engelhardt, two, possibly three, potential mutual events (occultations and/or eclipses) were observed. No mutual events were observed for the Phocaea asteroid (46037) 2001 DF33 but a strong secondary period was found in the data with the lightcurve similar to that of a tidallylocked, slightly elongated satellite. New values for absolute magnitude (H) were found for several Hungaria asteroids using either derived or assumed values of G. These H values were compared against those used in the WISE mission to determine diameters and albedos. In all cases where the WISE results featured an unusually high albedo for the asteroid in question, the new value of H resulted in an albedo that was significantly lower and closer to the expected value for type E asteroids, which are likely members of the Hungaria collisional family.

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lightcurves for 41 asteroids were obtained at the Palmer Divide Observatory (PDO) from 2011 December to 2012 March: 77 Frigga, 2933 Amber, 3352 McAuliffe, 3483 Svetlov, 4031 Mueller, 5378 Ellyett, 5579 Uhlherr, 5771 Somerville, 6087 Lupo, 6602 Gilclark, (6618) 1936 SO, 6635 Zuber, (8404) 1995 AN, (9873) 1992 GH, (11058) 1991 PN10, (16421) 1988 BJ, (16426) 1988 EC, (16585) 1992 QR, 16589 Hastrup, 18368 Flandrau, (19537) 1999 JL8, (23974) 1999 CK12, (24465) 2000 SX155, (26383) 1999 MA2, (30856) 1991 XE, (39618) 1994 LT, (45898) 2000 XQ49, (47983) 2000 XX13, (49566) 1999 CM106, (49678) 1999 TQ7, (50991) 2000 GK94, (57739) 2001 UF162, (63260) 2001 CN, (69350) 1993 YP, 79316 Huangshan, (82066) 2000 XG15, (82078) 2001 AH46, (105155) 2000 NG26, (141018) 2001 WC47, (256700) 2008 AG3, (320125) 2007 EQ185. Two asteroids showed indications of being binary. Analysis of the data for near-Earth asteroid, 3352 McAuliffe showed a second period of 20.86 h but no obvious mutual events (occultations and/or eclipses). The Hungaria asteroid, (24465) 2000 SX15, displayed similar characteristics. Furthermore, the primary (or only) period of 3.256 h cannot be reconciled with analysis from previous apparitions. Three asteroids showed signs of being in non-principal axis rotation (NPAR, "tumbling"). New values for absolute magnitude (H) were found for several Hungaria asteroids using either derived or assumed values of G. These new values were compared against those used in the WISE mission to determine diameters and albedos. In all cases where the WISE results featured an unusually high albedo for the asteroid in question, the new value of H resulted in an albedo that was significantly lower and closer to the expected value for type E asteroids, which are the likely members of the Hungaria collisional family.

Venerable or vulnerable: ageing and old age in JRR Tolkien's The lord of the rings.  

PubMed

An underappreciated aspect of The lord of the rings (TLOTR) by JRR Tolkien is in how the author dealt with death, longevity and ageing in the work. During his early years, Tolkien endured first the passing of both parents and then the deaths of most of his friends during the First World War. It was not surprising that a search for the meaning of life and death became a preoccupation of Tolkien. Tolkien's Roman Catholic faith underpinned his thoughts about mortality. He also found solace in Northern myths that held that there was intrinsic worth to courage in the face of our inevitable demise. Along with his colleague, CS Lewis, he took an opposing stand to JBS Haldane, Olaf Stapledon and other precursors of transhumanists, who felt that bioengineering would allow us to extend human life span virtually without limit. Although Tolkien acknowledged the urge to try to escape our mortality, TLOTR is a story about accepting the need to let go with all of the attendant regrets and sorrow. PMID:23674294

Computing the monthly Palmer Drought Index on a weekly basis: A case study comparing data estimation techniques  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A methodology is presented for estimating mean monthly temperature and total monthly precipitation before the month is over. The approach involves combining observed data for the month to date with daily normals for the remainder of the month. It is demonstrated to be superior to two other techniques, a persistence method and a moving window method. This normals technique allows the computation of an operational monthly Palmer Drought Index on a weekly (or even daily) basis which is consistent with historical drought indices of the recent past.

Multi-GCM Projections of Global Drought Conditions With Use of the Palmer Drought Indices  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use two Palmer Drought Indices (the PDSI and Z-index) to assess the drought conditions in future climates as projected by seven Global Climate Models (GCMs). Both indices are based on precipitation and temperature data (this makes them more suitable for climate change impact studies compared to the Standardized Precipitation Index, which is based only on precipitation) and the available water content of the soil. In contrast to the PDSI, the Z-index does not account for any persistence within the climate; rather, it characterizes the immediate (for a given week or month) conditions. The indices are calculated by computer programs available from the National Drought Mitigation Center and the Computer Science and Engineering Department, both located at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. To allow for the assessment of climate change impacts, we modified the original computer code: the indices (which we named "relative" drought indices) are now calibrated using the present climate weather series and then applied to the future climate weather series. The resultant time series thus displays the drought conditions in terms of the present climate. The relative drought indices are applied to gridded (whole globe) GCM-simulated surface monthly weather series (available from the IPCC database), and the available water content is based on soil- texture-based water holding capacity global data developed by Webb et al. (1993, Global Biogeochem. Cycles 7: 97-108). The indices are calibrated with 1991-2020 period (considered to be the present climate) and then applied to two future periods: 2031-2060 and 2060-2099. To quantify impacts of climate change on the drought conditions, we analyze shifts in the grid-specific means of the drought indices and in the frequency of months belonging to drought spells. The drought spell is defined here as continuous periods in which the index does not exceed -1, and falls below -3 for at least one month. Results obtained by single GCMs related to North America and Europe were already discussed earlier (http://www.ufa.cas.cz/dub/impacts/2006-longmont-drought.pdf). Here, the emphasis will be put on (1) assessing drought conditions on the whole globe, and (2) aggregating results from the set of seven GCMs. We will identify (i) regions where the drought conditions (when averaged over all 7 GCMs) will change most significantly, and (ii) regions where the between-GCMs concordance in projected drought change is the greatest thus indicating the highest reliability of the projection. For example, for North America and Europe, the projection of the PDSI for the end of the 21st century indicate the following regions with the highest potential risk of drought exaggeration (indicated by high decreases in PDSI combined with a high between-GCM concordance): the belt along the Canadian-U.S. border, central Mexico, the Mediterranean, and central Europe.

Characteristics and trends in various forms of the Palmer Drought Severity Index during 1900-2008  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) has been widely used to study aridity changes in modern and past climates. Efforts to address its major problems have led to new variants of the PDSI, such as the self-calibrating PDSI (sc_PDSI) and PDSI using improved formulations for potential evapotranspiration (PE), such as the Penman-Monteith equation (PE_pm) instead of the Thornthwaite equation (PE_th). Here I compare and evaluate four forms of the PDSI, namely, the PDSI with PE_th (PDSI_th) and PE_pm (PDSI_pm) and the sc_PDSI with PE_th (sc_PDSI_th) and PE_pm (sc_PDSI_pm) calculated using available climate data from 1850 to 2008. Our results confirm previous findings that the choice of the PE only has small effects on both the PDSI and sc_PDSI for the 20th century climate, and the self-calibration reduces the value range slightly and makes the sc_PDSI more comparable spatially than the original PDSI. However, the histograms of the sc_PDSI are still non-Gaussian at many locations, and all four forms of the PDSI show similar correlations with observed monthly soil moisture (r = 0.4-0.8) in North America and Eurasia, with historical yearly streamflow data (r = 0.4-0.9) over most of the world's largest river basins, and with GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) satellite-observed water storage changes (r = 0.4-0.8) over most land areas. All the four forms of the PDSI show widespread drying over Africa, East and South Asia, and other areas from 1950 to 2008, and most of this drying is due to recent warming. The global percentage of dry areas has increased by about 1.74% (of global land area) per decade from 1950 to 2008. The use of the Penman-Monteith PE and self-calibrating PDSI only slightly reduces the drying trend seen in the original PDSI. The percentages of dry and wet areas over the global land area and six select regions are anticorrelated (r = -0.5 to -0.7), but their long-term trends during the 20th century do not cancel each other, with the trend for the dry area often predominating over that for the wet area, resulting in upward trends during the 20th century for the areas under extreme (i.e., dry or wet) conditions for the global land as a whole (˜1.27% per decade) and the United States, western Europe, Australia, Sahel, East Asia, and southern Africa. The recent drying trends are qualitatively consistent with other analyses and model predictions, which suggest more severe drying in the coming decades.

The Duchess of Kingston's Case, the ruling of Lord Mansfield and duty of medical confidentiality in court.  

PubMed

The aim of this article is to demonstrate that the ruling commonly cited as the original precedent(1) for the doctrine that, at common law, medical practitioners' duty of confidentiality to their patients does not apply to court testimony,(2) did not, in fact, establish any such theory. The ruling by Lord Mansfield was made in the context of cross-examination by the Crown of a medical witness in the course of the trial of the Duchess of Kingston (Duchess of Kingston's Case (1776) 20 Howell's State Trials 355; [1775-1802] All ER Rep 623; [1776] 1 Leach 146), and this article will look briefly at: (1) the fascinating life of Elizabeth Chudleigh, the Dowager Duchess of Kingston, and the main events that led to her trial for bigamy; (2) the cross-examination of Caesar Hawkins and the different perceptions of the scope of confidentiality held by 18th century lawyers on the one hand and medical practitioners on the other; (3) Lord Mansfield's ruling that witnesses cannot withhold from the court facts which the law considers to be in the public domain; (4) the subsequent wide interpretation, usually as judicial obiter dicta, of its final paragraph during the 19th century, including early jurisprudential responses to the principle of medical confidentiality; and (5) the influence of John Henry Wigmore's opposition to patients' evidentiary privilege at common law during the twentieth century.

Smoke emissions from industrial western Scotland in 1859 inferred from Lord Kelvin’s atmospheric electricity measurements  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Lord Kelvin (William Thomson) made careful, calibrated measurements of the atmospheric Potential Gradient (PG) at three sites on the east side of Arran in 1859. The PG was always anomalously high in easterly and north-easterly winds. Positive space charge from sea spray may have contributed to the high PG at two coastal sites, but measurements made on Goatfell, inland and 100-175 m above sea level are unlikely to have been affected by spray. Instead, pollution from the Scottish mainland seems the more likely cause of the high PG at Goatfell, which varied from 300 to 1000 Vm-1 on 10th-11th October 1859, corresponding to smoke levels from 0.2 to 0.8 mgm-3. Gaussian plume calculations, based on the atmospheric conditions described by Lord Kelvin, and constrained by early Glaswegian pollution measurements, indicate a substantial source region located on the Scottish mainland, 20-40 km from Arran, emitting between 10-104 kg s-1.

A Lower Cretaceous, syn-extensional magmatic source for a linear belt of positive magnetic anomalies: the Pacific Margin Anomaly (PMA), western Palmer Land, Antarctica  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Ar-Ar laserprobe dating suggests that in western Palmer Land, plutons associated with a curvilinear belt of positive magnetic anomalies along the Pacific margin of the Antarctic Peninsula, the Pacific Margin Anomaly (PMA), are Early Cretaceous in age. The new ages, combined with published structural and geochemical studies, suggest that highly magnetically susceptible gabbroic to tonalitic-granodioritic rocks, the probable source of the Palmer Land segment of the PMA, were generated during Early Cretaceous extension when mantle-derived basaltic magma intruded mafic lower to middle crust. Continued extension uplifted newly generated, lower to middle crust through the Curie Isotherm (ca. 600°C) forming the magnetic anomaly. The PMA broadly tracks an arc-parallel band in western Palmer Land where crustal extension and uplift of lower crust were greatest. The close spatial relationship between the PMA and Early Cretaceous, syn-extensional plutons suggests that anomaly area can be used as a crude proxy for the volume of a related plutonic complex; the areal extent of the PMA indicates that a significant proportion of the arc crust was newly generated during the Early Cretaceous in western Palmer Land.

Incompleteness of the Thouless, Anderson, and Palmer mean-field description of the spin-glass phase  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We analyze the low-temperature behavior of mean-field equations of Thouless, Anderson, and Palmer (TAP). We demonstrate that degeneracy in free energy makes the low-temperature TAP states unstable. Different solutions of the TAP equations, independent in the TAP approach, become coupled if an infinitesimal interaction between them is introduced. By means of real spin replicas we derive a self-averaging free energy free of unstable states with local magnetizations and homogeneous overlap susceptibilities between different spin replicas as order parameters. We thereby extend the TAP approach to a consistent description of the spin-glass phase for all configurations of spin exchange with (marginally) stable and thermodynamically homogeneous free energy.

The Lord of Rings & the Olmi-Comics: Two cases of non-traditional approach to astronomy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Besides its traditional activities, the Public Outreach & Education offi ce (POE) of INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera (Milan, Italy) is carrying out two experiments in informal education for children aged 10 to 13: "The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings" and "The Olmi-comics". The former is an astronomical role-playing game. Pupils are requested to discover the burglars of the rings of Saturn by hunting for them in an area where they meet actors playing their parts at distances scaled to the ones of the Solar System. The latter is a writing/ drawing workshop. Pupils try to write stories or draw comics about science. While the two projects are rather different both in content and in format, they have a common goal: making pupils live science, mainly astronomy, both with the mind and the body.

Myth smashers, myth makers: (re)visionary techniques in the works of Paula Gunn Allen, Gloria Anzaldúa and Audre Lorde.  

PubMed

This paper examines the revisionist mythmaking strategies employed by three lesbian-feminist writers of color: Paula Gunn Allen (Laguna/Sioux/Lebanese/Scottish), Gloria Anzaldúa (Chicana tejana), and Audre Lorde (Caribbean/African/American). By incorporating creatrix figures such as the West African Mawulisa, the pre-Aztec Coatlicue, and the Laguna Pueblo Spider Old Woman/Thought Woman into their works, they challenge the cultural stereotypes that silence women of color by denying their access to language. Their use of nonwestern mythic material destabilizes monolithic definitions of (white heterosexual) female identity, yet their mythmaking goes beyond this challenge to hegemonic concepts of (white) womanhood. As they replace the Judeo-Christian world-view with modes of perception drawn from Native American, Chicana, and African mythic traditions, they offer a far-reaching critique of western culture's binary structures. By displacing the boundaries between inner/outer, subject/object, spirit/matter, and other dichotomous terms, the new myths they create provide radical alternatives to the existing social structures.

Development of expressed sequence tag resources for Vanda Mimi Palmer and data mining for EST-SSR.  

PubMed

Vanda Mimi Palmer (VMP) is a highly sought as fragrant-orchid hybrid in Malaysia. It is economically important in cosmetic and beauty industries and also a famous potted ornamental plant. To date, no work on fragrance-related genes of vandaceous orchids has been reported from other research groups although the analysis of floral fragrance or volatiles have been extensively studied. An expressed sequence tag (EST) resource was developed for VMP principally to mine any potential fragrance-related expressed sequence tag-simple sequence repeat (EST-SSR) for future development as markers in the identification of fragrant vandaceous orchids endemic to Malaysia. Clustering, annotation and assembling of the ESTs identified 1,196 unigenes which defined 966 singletons and 230 contigs. The VMP dbEST was functionally classified by gene ontology (GO) into three groups: molecular functions (51.2%), cellular components (16.4%) and biological processes (24.6%) while the remaining 7.8% showed no hits with GO identifier. A total of 112 EST-SSR (9.4%) was mined on which at least five units of di-, tri-, tetra-, penta-, or hexa-nucleotide repeats were predicted. The di-nucleotide motif repeats appeared to be the most frequent repeats among the detected SSRs with the AT/TA types as the most abundant among the dimerics, while AAG/TTC, AGA/TCT-type were the most frequent trimerics. The mined EST-SSR is believed to be useful in the development of EST-SSR markers that is applicable in the screening and characterization of fragrance-related transcripts in closely related species.

Atmospheric forcing of Holocene climate variability along the western Antarctic Peninsula: Novel insights from the TEX86 paleotemperature record of Palmer Deep  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Warming of the atmosphere and oceans has been implicated in the recent disintegration of massive ice shelves, reduced sea ice extent, and shifting ecologic zones observed along the Antarctic Peninsula. To place this environmental variability within the context of long-term deglacial to Holocene (0-13,000 years) change, researchers have reconstructed the past Holocene climate state of the Antarctic Peninsula using proxy records from ice and sediment cores. While ice cores provide a detailed record of regional atmospheric temperature change, obtaining similar quality records of past ocean temperatures has proven difficult due to a dearth of calcium carbonate in Antarctic continental margin marine sediments. Because ocean temperatures likely play a significant role in Antarctic ice shelf/ice sheet stability and sea ice extent, robust geochemical records of past sea surface temperatures (SST) are critically required to more fully resolve mechanisms of Holocene climate and cryosphere change. Here we present a detailed TEX86 sea surface temperature (SST) record extracted from a well-dated hemipelagic sedimentary sequence drilled in Palmer Deep, on the western Antarctic Peninsula continental margin (ODP Hole 1098B; 1010 meters water depth). The recently developed TEX86 (TetraEther indeX of lipids with 86 carbon atoms) proxy is based on the distribution of sedimentary lipids originally produced by surface dwelling planktonic archaea and has been calibrated using core-top sediments from waters with temperatures between 0 and 30°C (current error estimate: ±2°C). To our knowledge, our Palmer Deep record is the first downcore TEX86 record produced in the polar regions and due to the small number of existing measurements at these cold temperatures, estimates of the error at this end of the calibration may continue to evolve. However, the appeal of employing TEX86 paleothermometry in Palmer Deep sediments is that TEX86 can be measured in carbonate-poor sediments and the ratio is not influenced by oxic decomposition. Palmer Deep TEX86-derived SSTs range between 0 and 6°C (pooled SD of replicates: ±1.5°C) during the Holocene (0-12 ky). The TEX86 record suggests a long-term cooling of ~3°C between 12 and 0 ky, consistent with temperature trends recorded in the Taylor Dome ice core and southeast Pacific marine sediments. In general, SSTs are warmest (5-6°C) in the early Holocene (12-10.5 ky) and shift towards cooler temperatures (~1°C) after 5 kyr. Preliminary results indicate that the long-term Holocene climate trend is punctuated by millennial scale SST variability, the timing of which appears consistent with regional ice core temperature records and sedimentary evidence for ice shelf breakup and retreat in West Antarctica. This observation is consistent with hypotheses that favor atmospheric (via the Southern Hemisphere westerly winds), not thermohaline, control over the hydrography of Palmer Deep. Further development and calibration of the TEX86 proxy in Palmer Deep and the Southern Ocean region is required.

The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings: a critical analysis of an informal education activity  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

"The Lord of Rings - the mysterious case of the stolen rings" is a live astronomical role-playing game for kids aged 10 -13 [1]. Its goal is to introduce them to some of the main topics of the Solar System: a) the role of gravity; b) the distribution of mass & light; c) the effects of rotation; d) the distribution of water. The game was held at several Science Festival in Italy (Perugia, Genova, Fiorano, Bologna) obtaining great success. Teams of about 6-8 members are introduced to Mr Schioppanelli, the astro-detective of the town (the name is a pun: it reminds Schiaparelli, the famous italian astronomer, and it is a slang expression meaning "ring-breaker"). Mr Schioppanelli has his office in an "gastronomical astronomical observatory", known as The Red Giant Pizzeria. Schioppanelli informs the kids that a mysterious Centaur succeded in stealing the rings of Saturn. The partecipants are appointed astro-detectives incharge and asked to find the rings by browsing around the Solar System, which is scaled so as to fit the town historical centre or a pedestrian area, going from the Sun to Saturn or beyond, depending on the actual area at disposal. Great care must be taken allowing children playing only in a car-free area of the town. At the right scaled distances, the partecipants meet characters playing as the various planets. The kids can talk to them after solving a riddle, obtaining useful informations. A special characters play as a comet, timely going in and out of the inner solar system. The teams can also talk to some shepherdmoons of the rings. They easily discover that the rings were totally destroyed by the Centaur: a real disaster! They are also suggested to gather the necessary ingredients (gravity, light, rotation, inclination, dust and water, represented by simple objects like apples, spinning tops and so on) to rebuild the rings. The kids can buy the ingredients from different planets: every planet has ingredients in quantities which are proportionate to the real physical properties of that celestial object. After collecting the ingredients, they must carry them to the "The Red Giant" and indicate their best recipe to Mr Schioppanelli. Depending on the recipe, rings can be too strict or too luminous or too fast rotating and so on. The winning group is the one which prepares the best recipe to cook the rings in the smallest amount of time. After introducing this specific (and mysterious) game, we analyze the advantage-disadvantage ratio of such an activity, which is as funny as dispersive [2]. The key expression of the whole activity is, of course, "informal education". But, as a best practice result, we organize also 1 or 2 very simple laboratories about the solar system before playing the game. One of these, called The Olmicomics, allows the pupils to understand the dimensions of the planets with respect to their distances, providing them the correct introduction to "The Lord of Rings". The pupils are simply requested to pone the planets in a correct scale on a map of the city where they live. Then we coherently calculate together dimension of the Solar System planets and the Sun, according to the scale they chose. The second activity provide the pupils hints about the physical properties of the planets, touching the points a)-d) listed above. We believe this two-faces strategy is a quite effective tool for an education suited to our target group. They really do things, touch things, use their own body as a meter to understand distances and physical properties as the gravitational force. In the meanwhile, they are also asked to think about what they are doing, to make calculation and to build a representation of the Solar System by numbers, turning it into a visual representation only after their calculation. And, finally, to play with all these conceipts.

Health assessment for Lord Shope Landfill National Priorities List (NPL) Site, Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania, Region 3. CERCLIS No. PAD980508931. Final report  

SciTech Connect

The Lord Shope Landfill site is located in Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania. Long-term ingestion exposure to lead in private drinking water wells and long-term dermal contact exposure to arsenic in off-site surface water are of public health concern. The absence of adequate background sampling data makes it impossible to determine if these contaminants are attributable to the site. The site is of public health concern because of the risk to human health resulting from probable exposure to hazardous substances at concentrations that may result in adverse human health effects.

PREFACE: Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer Celebrating 20 years of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter—in honour of Richard Palmer  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in 1989. The journal was formed from the merger of Journal of Physics C: Solid State Physics and Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics which had separated in 1971. In the 20 years since its launch, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has more than doubled in size, while raising standards. Indeed, Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter has become one of the leading scientific journals for our field. This could not have occurred without great leadership at the top. No one has been more responsible for this growth in both size and quality than our Senior Publisher, Richard Palmer. Richard first started work at IOP in March 1971 as an Editorial Assistant with J. Phys. B After a few months, he transferred to J. Phys.C The following year, the Assistant Editor of J. Phys. C, Malcolm Haines, left suddenly in order to work on his family vineyard in France, and Richard stepped into the breach. In those days, external editors had a much more hands-on role in IOP Publishing and he had to travel to Harwell to be interviewed by Alan Lidiard, the Honorary Editor of J. Phys. C, before being given the job of Assistant Editor permanently. Since J. Phys. C and J. Phys. F re-merged to form Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter, Richard gradually shed his other journal responsibilities, except for Reports on Progress in Physics, to build up Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. He has worked closely with four Editors-in-Chief of J. Phys. C and five of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. When Richard announced his retirement this past winter, we met it with a great deal of both happiness and sadness. Of course, we are happy that he is going to be allowed to enjoy his retirement, but we remain very sad to lose such a valuable member of our team, especially the one who had provided the heart and soul of the journal over its 20 years. We will be able to rely upon the team which Richard ably trained as we go into the future. The Executive Board decided to do this special issue, both to commemorate the 20th year of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter and to honour Richard for his long years of service to IOP Publishing and Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter. This issue is dedicated to Richard for his many years of work and friendship with the journal board that has seen a great many changes over the years. This issue covers a very wide range of topics, since we approached all current and past members of the various boards of Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter in seeking papers for this special issue. The response has been very positive and this will be one of our larger special issues. The desire to honour Richard is widespread among these various boards, so that we have been almost overwhelmed with submissions, although many who wished to contribute could not because of other obligations. We hope that you, the readership, will enjoy these articles.

A Palmer Drought Severity Index for the North American Regional Reanalysis and the ECMWF 40-Year Reanalysis: Linkages to Large-Scale Circulation and Climate Variability  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) monitors meteorological and surface moisture parameters to represent the severity of drought conditions. The present study is an implementation of PDSI algorithms for the North American Regional Reanalysis (NARR) and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts 40-year global reanalysis (ERA-40). Intercomparisons between the resulting NARR and ERA-40 PDSI datasets and those of Dai et al. (2004) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration- Climate Prediction Center are presented. The spatial patterns and interannual variability of the resulting PDSI datasets are examined to comment on the suitability of the NARR and ERA-40 reanalyses for hydroclimate studies that pertain to meteorological drought. The availability of a PDSI dataset for the NARR augments its usefulness in regional hydroclimate studies, and a PDSI for both allows for exploration of linkages between large-scale variability and hydroclimate.

New insight into the thermal-tectonic history of the southern Antarctic Peninsula: (Uranium-Thorium-Samarium)/Helium and fission-track thermochronologic results from northwest Palmer Land and Alexander Island  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

This study examines the thermal history of the southern Antarctic Peninsula through the application of thermochronometry, and presents the first high-resolution thermochronologic dataset for arc rocks of northwest Palmer Land. I present 19 new thermochronologic ages obtained via (U-Th-Sm)/He and fission-track analyses of apatite and zircon from arc granitoids of northwest Palmer Land and fore-arc rocks of the LeMay and Fossil Bluff Groups of Alexander Island. These data were modeled via Monte Carlo simulations to generate time-temperature pathways. Thermal models generated for arc granitoids of northwest Palmer Land reveal a Late Cretaceous-Early Cenozoic episode of accelerated cooling from ca. 78--55 Ma not previously recognized in the southern Antarctic Peninsula. Here, faster cooling at an average rate of ˜15°C/Myr is bracketed by slower cooling at rates <3°C/Myr. Modeled thermal histories of metamorphosed fore-arc sedimentary rocks of Alexander Island reveal rapid cooling throughout the Eocene at an average rate of ˜13°C/Myr, preceded and followed by slower rates of cooling on the order of <3°C/Myr. The spatial and temporal distribution of the observed cooling trends may reflect localized variations in the thermal regime due to regional changes in plate kinematics, subduction dynamics, and related magmatism, but the cooling rates are also within range of those typical of exhumational processes such as normal faulting, ductile thinning, and erosion.

The role of causal reasoning in understanding Simpson's paradox, Lord's paradox, and the suppression effect: covariate selection in the analysis of observational studies.  

PubMed

Tu et al present an analysis of the equivalence of three paradoxes, namely, Simpson's, Lord's, and the suppression phenomena. They conclude that all three simply reiterate the occurrence of a change in the association of any two variables when a third variable is statistically controlled for. This is not surprising because reversal or change in magnitude is common in conditional analysis. At the heart of the phenomenon of change in magnitude, with or without reversal of effect estimate, is the question of which to use: the unadjusted (combined table) or adjusted (sub-table) estimate. Hence, Simpson's paradox and related phenomena are a problem of covariate selection and adjustment (when to adjust or not) in the causal analysis of non-experimental data. It cannot be overemphasized that although these paradoxes reveal the perils of using statistical criteria to guide causal analysis, they hold neither the explanations of the phenomenon they depict nor the pointers on how to avoid them. The explanations and solutions lie in causal reasoning which relies on background knowledge, not statistical criteria. PMID:18302750

Superfund Record of Decision (EPA Region 3): Lord-Shope Landfill site, Erie County, Pennsylvania (first remedial action), Final report, June 29, 1990  

SciTech Connect

The 25-acre Lord-Shope Landfill site is an inactive hazardous waste landfill in Girard Township, Erie County, northwestern Pennsylvania. The site consists of a 4-acre landfill and adjacent areas of contaminated soil, surface water and ground water. The primary contaminants of concern affecting the landfill material, surrounding soil, and ground water are VOCs including benzene, PCE, and TCE; and metals including arsenic, chromium, and lead. The selected remedial action for the site includes in-situ vapor stripping using vacuum wells to volatize and remove VOCs from the landfill material and the surrounding soil; collection and treatment of gas emissions generated by the vapor stripping process using carbon filtration; ground water pumping and treatment including pretreatment for metal removal, followed by air stripping, to halt plume migration, with final discharge of treated ground water into the nearby surface tributaries; implementation of site access restrictions and institutional controls including ground water use restrictions. The estimated present worth cost for the remedial action is $5,760,000, which includes an annual O and M cost of $420,000 for years 1 - 2 and $310,000 for years 3 - 50.

Geochemical Evidence for Large Holocene Climate and Productivity Excursions in a High-Resolution Sediment Record From the Palmer Deep, West Antarctica  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula is highly sensitive to climate change at interannual to decadal timescales. The region is adjacent to the Antarctic Polar Front at the juncture between the Atlantic and Pacific Basins, and also lies downstream of the South Pacific High, the descending limb of the atmospheric Southern Oscillation. In 1992, laminated sediments were discovered in a perched sub-basin of the Palmer Deep, a large depression off the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The Ocean Drilling Program triple-cored the Palmer Deep (Site 1098: 64.85 S, 64.2 W) in 1998 to examine Holocene oceanographic variability. More than 50 m of diatomaceous muds and oozes and muddy diamictons were recovered, comprising the first high resolution, continuous, Late Pleistocene through Holocene sediment record from the Antarctic continental margin. We report on a synthesis of trace and major element, stable isotope, and C/N geochemistry on samples collected at a temporal resolution ranging from ~8 to ~50 years. We analyzed Si, Al, Ti, P, Ba, biogenic opal, organic C and N, and organic C- and N-isotopic ratios every 2.5 to 10 cm downcore. Our chronology is based on 36 AMS radiocarbon dates. Each of these records appears to be responding to a large climatic forcing that initiated between 4500 and 7000 yrs. B.P. Biogenic opal, organic C, and P accumulation rates increase by a factor of ~2 beginning about 2,000 yrs. B.P., reaching a maximum between ~5,500 and 7,000 years B.P. Opal concentrations are less variable indicating that biosiliceous production and terrigenous input both increased during the mid-Holocene. 13C/12C ratios in bulk organic matter are high (with values similar to ice-edge bloom products) between ~4500 and 7000 yrs. B.P., signifying stronger diatom bloom events during the mid-Holocene. Prior to ~3000 years B.P., delta15N is lower for ~2,000 years, opposite the diagenetic trend, resulting from less complete utilization of photic zone nitrate. The elemental ratio of Al to Ti indicates a distinct change in terrigenous provenance ~3500 yrs. B.P., which suggests that either the source of the material to the basin or the weathering style and/or intensity changed in the region. All tracers of export production and terrigenous provenance exhibit significant variance at periods of ~400, 200, 140, and 70 years throughout the Holocene. Although the mechanisms responsible for mid-Holocene enhancements in productivity and terrigenous supply are not yet known, candidates include greater freshwater influence (from both glacial and sea ice sources), reduced wind shear, or changing oceanographic frontal positions. An obvious external forcing parameter that could explain the observed cyclicity at both centennial and millennial timescales is solar irradiance, possibly mediated through variability in the polar vortex. We relate our Holocene record with other similar resolution climate records from the Antarctic Ice Sheet and subtropical South America.

Observed trends for CF3-containing compounds in background air at Cape Meares, Oregon, Point Barrow, Alaska, and Palmer Station, Antarctica.

The concentrations of CF(3)-containing compounds in archived air samples collected at Cape Meares, Oregon, from 1978 to 1997, at Point Barrow, Alaska, from 1995 to 1998, and at Palmer Station, Antarctica, from 1991 to 1997, were determined by high resolution gas chromatography and high resolution mass spectrometry. The CF(3)-containing compounds measured by this method and discussed here are: the perfluorinated compound, C(3)F(8) (FC 218); four perhalogenated compounds, CF(3)Cl (CFC 13), CF(3)CF(2)Cl (CFC 115), CF(3)CFCl(2) (CFC 114a), and CF(3)Br (Halon 1301); and three hydrofluorocompounds, CF(3)H (HFC 23), CF(3)CH(3) (HFC 143a), and CF(3)CH(2)F (HFC 134a). For four of these compounds, very few measurements have been previously reported. The atmospheric concentrations of all of the CF(3)-containing compounds continuously increased in time over the sample collection periods. From these data, the annual rates of emission into the atmosphere have been estimated. The emission rates fall into one of three distinct categories. The annual emission rates of C(3)F(8), CF(3)H, CF(3)CH(3), and CF(3)CH(2)F have continuously increased over the last two decades. That of CF(3)CFCl(2) has decreased continuously. Emission rates for CF(3)Cl, CF(3)CF(2)Cl, and CF(3)Br reached maximum levels in the late 1980s, and have been decreasing in the 1990s. The emission rates of C(3)F(8), CF(3)CH(3) and CF(3)CH(2)F were nearly zero 20 years ago but have increased rapidly during the last decade. PMID:15050808

Lord Kelvin and Liberal Unionism  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Kelvin had been a staunch Liberal until Gladstone's Irish Home Rule Bill of 1886 made him a Liberal Unionist. He believed the measure would damage Ireland's best interests and would create economic and social instability. He also rejected it on constitutional grounds. Concern for the position of Ulster's Protestants was, however, not a major issue for Kelvin. Between 1886 and 1890 he was the most prominent Liberal Unionist in the West of Scotland, and under his leadership, the party was highly effective in the region. It is likely that, to a certain extent, his peerage was a reward for his political work. After 1890, Kelvin became more of a party figurehead, while his views on many political issues drew him closer to those of the Conservatives.

Highly Variable Holocene Antarctic Climate: A High-Resolution Marine Geochemical Record of Surface and Export Production, Terrigenous Provenance, and Terrigenous Accumulation from the Palmer Deep, West Antarctic Peninsula.  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Antarctic Peninsula is an ideal region to investigate climate change at decadal to millennial timescales due to its location in one of the earth's most dynamic climate systems. We have targeted the geochemical sedimentary record of ODP Site 1098 in the Palmer Deep to investigate changes in Holocene glacial evolution and oscillations in the Circumpolar Deep Water as traced by terrigenous provenance, terrigenous accumulation, nutrient utilization, and surface and export production. More than 50 meters of laminated diatomaceous muds, oozes, and muddy diamictons were recovered from the Palmer Deep, comprising the first, high-resolution, continuous Holocene sediment record from the Antarctic continental margin. We report on a synthesis of trace and major element, stable isotope, and C/N geochemistry on samples collected at a temporal resolution ranging from ~8 to ~50 years. We analyzed Si, Al, Ti, P, Ba, biogenic opal, organic C and N, and organic 13C/12C and 15N/14N isotopic ratios every 2.5 to 10 cm downcore. A series of sequential extractions were completed on a subset of samples to better constrain the elemental distribution within the different components of the sediment. Our chronology is based on 36 AMS radiocarbon dates. Biogenic opal, Corg, and P accumulation rates all increase ~2,000 years B.P., reaching a maximum ~5,500 to 7,000 years B.P. Opal concentrations are less variable, yet indicate that biosiliceous production increased during the mid-Holocene. 13C/12C in bulk organic matter are high (with values similar to ice-edge bloom products) ~4500 to 7000 years B.P., signifying stronger diatom bloom events during the mid-Holocene. Prior to ~3000 years B.P., delta15N was lower for ~2,000 years, resulting from less complete utilization of photic zone nitrate. The Al/Ti ratio indicates a change in terrigenous composition ~3500 years B.P. indicating a change in source, weathering style, and/or intensity. All tracers of productivity and terrigenous provenance exhibit significant variance at periods of ~400, 200, 140, and 70 years. Cross-spectral analysis of Al/Ti vs Al accumulation show that these two parameters are in phase with each other at the 400, 200, and 140 year periods, suggesting that changes in terrigenous provenance are concurrent with changes in terrigenous accumulation. Although the mechanisms forcing mid-Holocene enhancements in productivity and terrigenous supply remain unclear, candidates include greater glacial and sea-ice freshwater influences, reduced wind shear, or changing oceanographic frontal positions. A possible external forcing parameter is solar irradiance, possibly mediated through variability in the polar vortex.

Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace: a theoretical model, combining quality of life and years of life, which offers clues for the proper time to die with dignity.  

PubMed

"Lord, now you are letting your servant depart in peace according to your word" said Saint Symeon (New Testament, Luke 2, 29). But, which is this day? How can we know it? In this article we re-examine theoretically, using a "thought experiment", the ancient dilemma of "when is the proper time to die". It is a contribution to the international debate on quality of life, quality of death, and dying with dignity. Quality is defined as a variable, which incorporates every other dimension of life except time (except years of life). It is accepted that a heuristic definition of life is the product of duration and quality, and, since quality can be negative, we accept the idea that life can be negative as well. Given that, the proper time to die in dignity is when life, from being positive becomes negative. After that we examine the individual as a member and part of the society in which he belongs and we conclude that negative life can be prolonged only be consuming positive life of other members of the society; this means that negative life in a hypothetical one-member society cannot exist; a critical population size is necessary. Finally, rising to the society level, and having defined society's life as the sum of every person's life, we discovered that preserving the negative life of some people can only be possible by consuming the positive life of other members of this society or/and other society (ies) or/and of the whole biosphere. Now the question is raised whether this is ethical or not, whether it is a human right and, if so, whose? PMID:11143895

"Lord of the Mirrors" and demon lover.  

PubMed

Repeated object loss drove Sylvia Plath to create, and what she created were her greatest, and best-known poems, collected in the book Ariel. Yet the compulsion to create alternated with the compulsion to destroy. Her suicidal impulses were as intense as her poetic impulses (see Bach, 1985, on the "Marquis de Sade"). How these two contrasting impulses counter-balanced each other, until self-destruction took the lead, is the story of Sylvia Plath. What remains with us is the puzzle of her despair. This puzzle can only be pieced together by looking at the internal object relations of the father-daughter bond, which germinated like a ghost and spector within Sylvia Plath's soul. PMID:3548444

TRAF1: Lord Without A RING  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) receptor-associated factors (TRAFs) constitute a family of adaptor proteins that associate with the cytosolic tail of particular TNF-family receptors (TNFR) and regulate cytokine signaling by linking TNFRs with downstream protein kinases, ubiquitin ligases, and other effector proteins. A total of six members of this family (TRAF1-6) have been identified in mammals. TRAF1 is unique among TRAFs because it lacks a RING finger domain present in TRAF2-6 that has been shown to be required for TRAF2- and TRAF6-mediated activities. TRAF1 also has the most restricted expression among TRAFs, and is found almost exclusively in activated lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and certain epithelia. Recent evidence obtained from TRAF1-/- mice shows that TRAF1-deficient T cells are hyper-responsive to TNF-α, having increased T cell receptor (TCR)-dependent T cell proliferation rates in vitro. Also, these TRAF1-/- mice had increased sensitivity to TNF-α-induced skin necrosis in vivo. These results support a role for TRAF1 as a negative regulator of signaling by certain TNF-family receptors. This review summarizes current knowledge about TRAF1, focusing on the new information provided by these TRAF1-deficient mice. Also, the pros and cons of TRAFs as potential targets for drug discovery are discussed.

A comparative study of protein synthesis in nototheniids and icefish at Palmer Station, Antarctica.  

PubMed

Protein synthetic rates were measured in tissues of Notothenia corriceps, N. gibberifrons and Chaenocephalus aceratus in vivo at 2 degrees C by a method in which high doses of 14C-phenylalanine are used for stabilization of specific radioactivity. Rates in N. coriiceps, as per cent of tissue protein synthesized per day, were: liver 10.4, head kidney 3.5, testis 2.6, spleen 2.1, kidney 1.9, gill 1.6, heart 1.4, pectoral muscle 1.0, epaxial muscle 0.37, brain 0.42. With the exception of liver and head kidney (9.8 and 3.4, respectively) all rates in the icefish C. aceratus were significantly reduced compared to the nototheniids, consistent with the dependence of protein synthesis on oxidative metabolism. Icefish lack hemoglobin in the blood. The effects of two-week starvation were tissue-specific. Rates declined markedly in pectoral and epaxial muscle, were unchanged in liver, kidney, brain, heart and testis, and were increased in gill and head kidney. The results are discussed in relation to cold adaptation of Antarctic fishes and to the adaptation of metabolism required during non-feeding periods and for species which lack an oxygen-binding pigment in their blood.

Most of us would willingly - perhaps even passionately - tackle the question of what we should teach our students. Similarly, we are likely to engage in a conversation about how we teach and our preferences for organizing classroom time and structures. Although the question of why we teach may be raised less often (and perhaps with a hint of

Nitrogen and sulfur species in Antarctic aerosols at Mawson, Palmer Station, and Marsh (King George Island)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

High volume bulk aerosol samples which had been continuously collected at three Antarctic sites were analyzed for Na(+), SO4(2-), NO3(-), methanesulfonate (MSA), NH4(+), Pb-210, and Be-7. It is noted that while aerosol compositions are relatively uniform over a broad sector of the Antarctic in some respects, but not in all. The timing of the seasonal cycles appears to be very consistent throughout the region of the southern ocean; the concentrations of MSA appear to be somewhat more variable than previously supposed. Spatial variations in the SO4(+)/MSA ratios are significant both in aerosols and in ice cores.

Complete palmer lunate enucleation---is proximal row carpectomy or wrist arthrodesis the only choice?  

PubMed

Perilunate dislocations are rare injuries of the wrist and complete dislocation of the lunate is also rare. There is controversy in literature regarding the optimal management of such injuries. Complete lunate enucleation is associated with high rate of osteonecrosis of lunate thus wrist arthrodesis or proximal row carpectomy has been advocated as primary treatment for such injuries. We report a case of transradial styloid complete palmar lunate enucleation in a 25-year-old male patient who sustained injury to the left wrist due to fall on outstretched hand. Carpal row salvage surgery initially by closed reduction and wrist distractor application followed by open reduction and internal fixation with K-wires along with ligamentous repair resulted in restoration of normal wrist anatomy and good functional outcome. As many of these injuries are missed on initial presentation and outcome is poor for missed injuries, prompt diagnosis and early surgical management to restore vascularity of lunate is recommended.

Acute Palmer Digital Artery Occlusion Treated Using Endoscopic Ablation of the Thoracic Sympathetic  

PubMed Central

Acute occlusion of the digital arteries frequently causes painful infarction requiring digital amputation. We describe a 55-year-old male patient who presented with acute onset of digital ischemia with impending gangrene on the right hand. Because angiography revealed bypass surgery was not feasible, he underwent thoracoscopic sympathectomy (TS) one week after onset of the symptom, which resulted in rapid pain resolution. He was diagnosed, thereafter, with malignant rheumatoid arthritis and methotrexate was administered. Postoperative angiography revealed that the occluded digital artery had become recanalized. Timely TS is therefore a treatment of choice for acute digital ischemia.

Biogerontology: from here to where? The Lord Cohen Medal Lecture-2011.  

PubMed

Ageing is a progressive shrinkage of the homeodynamic space and, at the molecular level, it is associated with the stochastic occurrence and progressive accumulation of molecular damage. Imperfection of the maintenance and repair systems results in the failure of homeodynamics characterized by increased molecular heterogeneity, altered cellular functioning, reduced stress tolerance and reduced remodeling and adaptation, which lead to increased probability of diseases and eventual death. Although, several types of molecular damages have been shown to accumulate and increase molecular heterogeneity during ageing, its relevance and significance with respect to the physiology, survival and longevity remains to be determined. Such studies are essential for establishing biomarkers of health, frailty, remodeling and adaptation, and for developing effective methods for the prevention and reversion of age-related changes. A promising strategy for ageing intervention and modulation is that of strengthening the homeodynamics through repeated mild stress-induced hormesis by physical, biological and nutritional hormetins. Because a number of ethical, social, and personal implications emerge by the development and use of anti-ageing and life-extending technologies, biogerontologists should incorporate these elements while developing their research agenda in biogerontology.

The S-R issue: its status in behavior analysis and in Donahoe and Palmer's learning and complex behavior.  

PubMed Central

The central focus of this essay is whether the effect of reinforcement is best viewed as the strengthenng of responding or the strengthening of the environmental control of responding. We make the argument that adherence to Skinner's goal of achieving a moment-to-moment analysis of behavior compels acceptance of the latter view. Moreover, a thoroughgoing commitment to a moment-to-moment analysis undermines the fundamental distinction between the conditioning process instantiated by operant and respondent contingencies while buttressing the crucially important differences in their cumulative outcomes. Computer simulations informed by experimental analyses of behavior and neuroscience are used to illustrate these points.

Lithosphere Delamination Caused Permanent Subsidence of New Caledonia Trough and Transient Uplift of Lord Howe Rise During Cenozoic Initiation of Tonga-Kermadec Subduction, Western Pacific (Invited)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use seismic-reflection and rock-sample data to propose that the first-order physiography of New Caledonia Trough and Norfolk Ridge formed in Eocene and Oligocene time, and was associated with the onset of subduction at the Australia-Pacific plate boundary. Lithosphere delamination and subduction initiation was followed by rapid rollback of the slab. Delamination created a deep (>2 km) enclosed oceanic trough c. 2000 km long and 200-300 km across in Eocene and Oligocene time as the lower crust detached, with simultaneous uplift and local land development along basin flanks. Disruption of Late Cretaceous and Paleogene strata was minimal during this Cenozoic phase and involved only subtle tilting and local reverse faulting or folding. Cenozoic basin formation was possible through the action of at least one detachment fault that allowed the lower crust to either be subducted into the mantle or exhumed eastward into Norfolk Basin. We suggest that delamination of the lithosphere, with possible mixing of the lower crust back into the mantle, is more widespread than previously thought and may be commonly associated with subduction initiation, such as Cenozoic events in the Mediterranean and western Pacific.

Lithosphere delamination with foundering of lower crust and mantle caused permanent subsidence of New Caledonia Trough and transient uplift of Lord Howe Rise during Eocene and Oligocene initiation of Tonga-Kermadec subduction, western Pacific  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We use seismic reflection and rock sample data to propose that the first-order physiography of New Caledonia Trough and Norfolk Ridge formed in Eocene and Oligocene time and was associated with the onset of subduction and back-arc spreading at the Australia-Pacific plate boundary. Our tectonic model involves an initial Cretaceous rift that is strongly modified by Cenozoic subduction initiation. Hence, we are able to explain (1) complex sedimentary basins of inferred Mesozoic age; (2) a prominent unconformity and onlap surface of middle Eocene to early Miocene age at the base of flat-lying sediments beneath the axis of New Caledonia Trough; (3) gently dipping, variable thickness, and locally deformed Late Cretaceous strata along the margins of the trough; (4) platform morphology and unconformities on either side of the trough that indicate a phase of late Eocene to early Miocene uplift to near sea level, followed by rapid Oligocene and Miocene subsidence of ˜1100-1800 m; and (5) seismic reflection facies tied to boreholes that suggest absolute tectonic subsidence at the southern end of New Caledonia Trough by 1800-2200 m since Eocene time. The Cenozoic part of the model involves delamination and subduction initiation followed by rapid foundering and rollback of the slab. This created a deep (>2 km) enclosed oceanic trough, ˜2000 km long and 200-300 km across, in Eocene and Oligocene time as the lower crust detached, with simultaneous uplift and local land development along basin flanks. Disruption of Late Cretaceous and Paleogene strata was minimal during this Cenozoic phase and involved only subtle tilting and local reverse faulting or folding. Basin formation was possible through the action of at least one detachment fault that allowed the lower crust to either be subducted into the mantle or exhumed eastward into Norfolk Basin. We suggest that delamination of the lithosphere, with possible mixing of the lower crust back into the mantle, is more widespread than previously thought and may be commonly associated with subduction initiation, such as Cenozoic events in the Mediterranean and western Pacific.

Gastrointestinal Helminths of Magpies (Pica pica), Rooks (Corvus frugilegus) and Carrion Crows (Corvus corone) in Mazandaran Province, North of Iran  

PubMed Central

Background Corvidae is a cosmopolitan family of oscine birds including crows, rooks, magpies, jays, chough, and ravens. These birds are migratory species, especially in the shortage of foods, so they can act like vectors for a wide range of microorganisms. They live generally in temperate climates and in a very close contact with human residential areas as well as poultry farms. There is no available information in the literature concerning the parasitic infections of these three species of corvidae in Mazandaran Province, northern Iran, so this study was conducted to clarify this. Methods As there are three species of corvid birds in Mazandaran Province, 106 birds including 79 magpies, 11 rooks, and 16 carrion crows were examined between winter 2007 and spring 2008 at post mortem for gastrointestinal helminths. The helminths were drawn and identified morphologically in the Laboratory of Parasitology, Islamic Azad University, Science and Research Branch, Tehran and also partly in the School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, based on the reference books and identification keys like Soulsby, Khalil et al. and Anderson et al. Results Four species of nematodes, 2 species of cestodes, 1 species of trematodes and 1 species of acanthocephalans were identified in these three corvid species. Conclusion Five species of the helminths are identified for the first time in Iran, and the acanthocephalan species is new host record for rooks. It is clear that these corvid birds have diverse range of helminths and can act as carriers for infecting the domestic fowls.

Stueckelberg had the benefit at Princeton of exchanges with other gifted members of the Palmer Physical Laboratory, Philip M. Morse and E. U. Condon among others.3 to a recommendation by A. Sommerfeld.2 In this stimulating environment, he devoted several papers to problems of molecular physics.

Innate intelligence: its origins and problems  

PubMed Central

Animal Magnetism and Radionics were among several occult practices used during the 19th century for the treatment of disease. D.D. Palmer was exposed to these teachings and derived many of his ideas about health from the folk medicine practices of his time. As a ‘magnetic healer’ Palmer believed he was correcting an undefined fifth force in the body that is otherwise unknown to science. Palmer believed he could influence this fifth force, termed Innate Intelligence, and that it was the explanation for the presence or absence of health. Today, Innate Intelligence remains an untestable enigma that isolates chiropractic and impedes its acceptance as a legitimate health science. The concept of Innate is derived directly from the occult practices of another era. It carries a high penalty in divisiveness and lack of logical coherence. The chiropractic profession must decide whether the concept of Innate should be retained.

Beyond the "Jim Crow" experience: blacks in chiropractic education.  

PubMed

Although the first chiropractic adjustment was given by D.D. Palmer to a black man in 1895, within two decades attendance at the Palmer School of Chiropractic was forbidden to blacks. Not until mid-century were blacks allowed entrance into the oldest and largest chiropractic college in the United states. Denied entry at the Palmer School, most blacks who entered chirporactic studied in "Jim Crow" schools run by white practitioners in the North. This paper explores the social, historicl and economic factors influencing the exclusion of blacks from medical education, and concludes that chirpractic education is at the stage medical education was twenty-five years ago in its attempts to recruit black students. The author recommends that the Association of Chiropractic Colleges establish a task force on minoritiy recruitment to expand the educational opportunities in chiropractic for blacks and other minorities.

Medical negligence: who sets the standard?  

PubMed Central

'The law imposes the duty of care: but the standard of care is a matter of medical judgment'. So says Lord Scarman, outlining the hitherto accepted 'Bolam' standard, in his recent speech in the House of Lords decision of Sidaway v Bethlem Royal Hospital, reflecting earlier judicial dicta suggesting that it is for the medical profession rather than the courts to determine whether or not a medical practitioner has achieved the required standard of care (1). It is suggested here that this concept is bad in principle, and that the weight of judicial authority is against it.

Triangular fibrocartilage complex tears: a review.  

PubMed

Triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears are a common source of ulnar sided wrist pain. Originally described by Palmer, in 1981, as a complex of several structures, our understanding of the anatomy and the function of the TFCC has been refined by histologic studies. The TFCC plays an important role in load bearing across the wrist as well as in distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) stabilization. A thorough knowledge of the anatomy as well as the Palmer classification system helps to guide treatment options. PMID:17155920

VLF versus MF heating of the lower ionosphere  

SciTech Connect

The perturbation in the signal strength of a VLF transmitter by another transmitter heating the ionosphere on the great circle path to the receiver is calculated for two cases: The NAA-Palmer path heated by the VLF transmitter, NAU, and the Omega Norway-Skibotn path heated by the MF transmitter, heating, near Tromsoe. Comparison implies either that VLF heating is over 100 times more effective than MF heating in terms of the perturbation produced, per RF heating watt, in VLF propagation in the Earth-ionosphere wave-guide or that the observed effect at Palmer is fortuitous or spurious.

Anxiety disorders in ancient Indian literature  

PubMed Central

In western literature, the oldest description of symptoms of PTSD, an anxiety group of disorder, is seen in Homer’s Iliad written around 720 BC. According to Shay, Achilles was suffering from symptoms of PTSD. However, in the Indian literature it was mentioned around 5000 BC. The description of a PTSD-like syndrome is seen in the Ramayana, although it was not described as PTSD or by any other similar name. Ravana’s brother Marrich was having symptoms of PTSD after he was grievously hurt by Lord Rama’s arrow and was almost dead. This traumatic event threatened his physical integrity. He developed all the symptoms of PTSD, like hyper-arousal, re-experiencing the events and avoidance. He also gave up his natural work of harassing the monk and got engaged in meditation and austerities. His symptoms lasted for many years till Lord Rama killed him, while he was masquerading as a golden deer to deceive Sita. In another ancient epic Shrimad Bhagavatam, Maharshi Ved Vyasa described the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). The demon King Kansha developed GAD-like symptoms, when Lord Krishna killed all his demons and threatened to kill him. He developed symptoms of GAD, like excessive worry about the attack from his arch foe Krishna, difficulty in concentration and difficulty in falling asleep. Like Marrich, the symptoms of Kansha also lasted until Lord Krishna killed him.

Anxiety disorders in ancient Indian literature.  

PubMed

In western literature, the oldest description of symptoms of PTSD, an anxiety group of disorder, is seen in Homer's Iliad written around 720 BC. According to Shay, Achilles was suffering from symptoms of PTSD. However, in the Indian literature it was mentioned around 5000 BC. The description of a PTSD-like syndrome is seen in the Ramayana, although it was not described as PTSD or by any other similar name. Ravana's brother Marrich was having symptoms of PTSD after he was grievously hurt by Lord Rama's arrow and was almost dead. This traumatic event threatened his physical integrity. He developed all the symptoms of PTSD, like hyper-arousal, re-experiencing the events and avoidance. He also gave up his natural work of harassing the monk and got engaged in meditation and austerities. His symptoms lasted for many years till Lord Rama killed him, while he was masquerading as a golden deer to deceive Sita. In another ancient epic Shrimad Bhagavatam, Maharshi Ved Vyasa described the symptoms of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). The demon King Kansha developed GAD-like symptoms, when Lord Krishna killed all his demons and threatened to kill him. He developed symptoms of GAD, like excessive worry about the attack from his arch foe Krishna, difficulty in concentration and difficulty in falling asleep. Like Marrich, the symptoms of Kansha also lasted until Lord Krishna killed him. PMID:21180424

[Primary arthroscopic treatment of TFCC tears in fractures of the distal radius].  

PubMed

The primary simultaneous diagnosis and therapy of TFCC tears in distal radius fractures is still the exception. We present our results of arthroscopic treatment of these injuries. From January 1998 until September 1999, we treated 21 patients with a type C fracture (AO classification) of the distal radius and one patient with a scaphoid fracture and TFCC tears. The Palmer 1A (n = 5) and 1 C (n = 4) tears have been arthroscopically shaved as well as the meniscal tear (n = 1). The Palmer 1B tears were refixed either in an outside-inside technique (n = 6) or in a new all-inside technique (n = 6). Palmer 1D tears were refixed in the Fellinger technique (n = 5). In the clinical follow-up examination six to fifteen months later, we saw symptoms of ulnar-sided wrist pain only in one case of a Palmer 1B tear treated in an outside-inside technique. Especially the patients treated by the new all-inside technique were free from symptoms of TFCC instability. We conclude, that arthroscopic treatment of TFCC tears in acute radius fractures is possible with good results. The new technique of all-inside repair is minimally invasive and shows good results.

Treatment of injury of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC).  

PubMed

Background. The triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) supplies stability and cushioning for proper wrist function. TFCC lesions, a common cause of ulnar-sided wrist pain, can be traumatic (Palmer I) or degenerative (Palmer II) in nature. Clinical assessment is basic for making the diagnosis, but imaging may be helpful. Conservative treatment is the best choice for most acute cases. If the symptoms persist, however, operative treatment has a better prognosis for pain relief. Wrist arthroscopy has a major role to play in the diagnosis and treatment of TFCC lesions. Material and methods. 29 patients were operated in the Hand Surgery Department in Pozna? due to TFCC lesions. 16 patients were qualified as Palmer type I (9 sport injuries, 7 sprains). while 13 patients had Palmer type II secondary to distal radial fractures. All patients suffered ulnar wrist pain and were positive on provocation tests. The indication for surgery was a lack of response to conservative treatment. Different operative procedures were used, depending on the type of lesion: arthroscopic debridement, open or arthroscopic restabilization of the TFCC, ulnar shortening, or partial resection of the ulnar head (Wafer). Rehabilitation was introduced following a period of immobilization. Results. Wrist pain was significantly diminished or disappeared after surgical treatment and rehabilitation. Conclusions. Good functional result and pain relief can be expected following surgical treatment of TFCC injuries. PMID:17592403
