Mercury in Nelsons Sparrow Subspecies at Breeding Sites  

E-print Network

Background: Mercury is a persistent, biomagnifying contaminant that can cause negative effects on ecosystems. Marshes are often areas of relatively high mercury methylation and bioaccumulation. Nelsons Sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni) use marsh habitats year-round and have been documented to exhibit tissue mercury concentrations that exceed negative effects thresholds. We sought to further characterize the potential risk of Nelsons Sparrows to mercury exposure by sampling individuals from sites within the range of each of its subspecies.

Lewy bodies  

PubMed Central

Lewy bodies (LB) in the substantia nigra are a cardinal pathological feature of Parkinson's disease, but they occur in a number of neurodegenerative diseases and can be widespread in the nervous system. The characteristics, locations, and composition of LB are reviewed, with particular attention to ?-synuclein (?-SYN), which appears to be the major component of LB. The propensity for ?-SYN, a presynaptic protein widely expressed in the brain, to aggregate is because of an amyloidogenic central region. The factors that favor the aggregation of ?-SYN and mechanisms of toxicity are examined, and a mechanism through which aggregates of ?-SYN could induce mitochondrial dysfunction and/or release of proapoptotic molecules is proposed.

Lewis Acid Organocatalysts  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The term Lewis acid catalysts generally refers to metal salts like aluminium chloride, titanium chloride and zinc chloride. Their application in asymmetric catalysis can be achieved by the addition of enantiopure ligands to these salts. However, not only metal centers can function as Lewis acids. Compounds containing carbenium, silyl or phosphonium cations display Lewis acid catalytic activity. In addition, hypervalent compounds based on phosphorus and silicon, inherit Lewis acidity. Furthermore, ionic liquids, organic salts with a melting point below 100 C, have revealed the ability to catalyze a range of reactions either in substoichiometric amount or, if used as the reaction medium, in stoichiometric or even larger quantities. The ionic liquids can often be efficiently recovered. The catalytic activity of the ionic liquid is explained by the Lewis acidic nature of their cations. This review covers the survey of known classes of metal-free Lewis acids and their application in catalysis.

Nelson River and Hudson Bay  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Rivers that empty into large bodies of water can have a significant impact on the thawing of nearshore winter ice. This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from May 18, 2001, shows the Nelson River emptying spring runoff from the Manitoba province to the south into the southwestern corner of Canada's Hudson Bay. The warmer waters from more southern latitudes hasten melting of ice near the shore, though some still remained, perhaps because in shallow coastal waters, the ice could have been anchored to the bottom. High volumes of sediment in the runoff turned the inflow brown, and the rim of the retreating ice has taken on a dirty appearance even far to the east of the river's entrance into the Bay. The sediment would have further hastened the melting of the ice because its darker color would have absorbed more solar radiation than cleaner, whiter ice.

Motor and cognitive function in Lewy body dementia: comparison with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.  

PubMed Central

OBJECTIVE: Motor and cognitive function were compared in patients with Lewy body dementia, Parkinson's disease, or Alzheimer's disease, to identify features that may be clinically useful in differentiating Lewy body dementia from Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. METHODS: A range of neuropsychological function and extrapyrimidal signs (EPS) was assessed in 16 patients with Lewy body dementia, 15 with Parkinson's disease, 25 with Alzheimer's disease, and 22 control subjects. RESULTS: The severity of total motor disability scores increased in the following order: controls approximately = Alzheimer's disease << Parkinson's disease < Lewy body dementia. Compared with patients with Parkinson's disease, patients with Lewy body dementia had greater scores for rigidity and deficits in the finger tapping test, but rest tremor and left/right asymmetry in EPS were more evident in Parkinson's disease. Patients with Lewy body dementia were also less likely to present with left/right asymmetry in EPS at the onset of their parkinsonism. "Sensitivity" to neuroleptic drugs was noted in 33% of patients with Lewy body dementia. Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body dementia groups had greater severity of dementia compared with the Parkinson's disease group and controls. Neuropsychological evaluation disclosed severe but similar degrees of impaired performances in tests of attention (digit span), frontal lobe function (verbal fluency, category, and Nelson card sort test) and motor sequencing in both Lewy body dementia and Alzheimer's disease groups, than Parkinson's disease and controls. In the clock face test, improved performance was noted in the "copy" compared to "draw" part of the test in controls, patients with Alzheimer's disease, and those with Parkinson's disease, but not in the patients with Lewy body dementia, who achieved equally poor scores in both parts of the test. CONCLUSIONS: EPS in Lewy body dementia resemble those seen in idiopathic Parkinson's disease, although less rest tremor and left/right asymmetry but more severe rigidity favours a diagnosis of Lewy body dementia. The unique profile of patients with Lewy body dementia seen in the clock face test suggests that this simple and easy to administer test may be useful in the clinical setting to differentiate Lewy body dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

Dementia with Lewy bodies  

PubMed Central

Synopsis The advent of new immunostains have improved our ability to detect limbic and cortical Lewy bodies, and it is now evident that Dementa with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common neurodegenerative dementia, after Alzheimers disease (AD). Distinguishing DLB from AD has important implications for treatment, in terms of substances that may worsen symptoms (i.e., anticholinergic and certain neuroleptic medications) and those that may improve them (i.e., cholinesterase inhibitors, carbidopa-levodopa). Neurocognitive patterns, psychiatric features, extrapyramidal signs and sleep disturbance are helpful in differentiating DLB from AD early in the disease course. Differences in the severity of cholinergic depletion as well as type and distribution of neuropathology contribute to these clinical differences, though DLB patients with a high density of co-occuring AD pathology are less clinical distinguishable from AD.

Characterization of Mercury and Its Risk in Nelsons, Saltmarsh, and Seaside Sparrows  

PubMed Central

Background Nelsons, Saltmarsh, and Seaside Sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni, A. caudacutus, and A. maritimus, respectively) depend on marsh and wetland habitats ecosystems in which mercury (Hg) bioavailability is notoriously high. The purpose of the present study was to address the potential impact of Hg on these species using first primary and breast feathers as non-destructive biomonitoring tools. Methods and Principal Findings Feathers were sampled from wintering sparrows in North Carolina salt marshes (20062010). Feather Hg data were used in three risk analysis components (1) Threshold Component examined feather Hg with regard to published negative effects thresholds; (2) Hg Dynamics Component examined Hg in sparrows captured multiple times; and (3) Capture Frequency and Survival Component tested for links between Hg and return frequency and survival. Threshold Component analyses indicated that Hg concentrations in 4277% of sampled individuals (breast feather n?=?879; first primary feather n?=?663) were within the range associated with decreased reproduction in other avian species. Hg Dynamics Component analyses demonstrated that Hg increased between first and second captures for Nelsons (n?=?9) and Seaside Sparrows (n?=?23). Capture Frequency and Survival Component analyses detected a negative relationship between Hg and capture frequency in Nelsons Sparrows (n?=?315). However, MARK models detected no effect of Hg on apparent survival in any species. Conclusion and Significance This study indicates that current Hg exposure places a considerable proportion of each population at risk. In particular, 52% of all sampled Saltmarsh Sparrows exhibited first primary feather Hg concentrations exceeding those associated with a >60% reduction in reproductive success in other species. This study reports evidence for net annual bioaccumulation, indicating an increased risk in older individuals. These data can be used to inform future population assessments and management for these species. PMID:22962614

Radical frustrated Lewis pairs.  

PubMed

While a growing body of literature describes FLP adducts of diamagnetic unsaturated substrates such as alkenes, alkynes and heterocumulenes such as carbon dioxide, capture of the diatomic radical nitric oxide (NO) by intramolecular phosphane/borane FLPs gives a new family of radical frustrated Lewis pair adducts. Capture of NO results in heterocycles with new P-N and B-N bonds featuring a spin density Umpolung of NO to give FLP-NO species that possess significant O-centered radical reactivity. Use of these radical FLP-NO species in C-H functionalization chemistry via H-atom abstraction / radical recombination sequences as well as deployment in nitroxide mediated polymerization of alkenes indicates a rich and diverse chemistry for FLP-NO species. An alternative, complementary strategy to generate radical FLPs involves the use of transition metal centers with unpaired electrons as the Lewis acid component of an FLP in conjunction with a tethered but hindered Lewis base.

The Nelson-Seiberg theorem revised  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The well-accepted Nelson-Seiberg theorem relates R-symmetries to supersymmetry (SUSY) breaking vacua, and provides a guideline for SUSY model building which is the most promising physics beyond the Standard Model. In the case of Wess-Zumino models with perturbative superpotentials, we revise the theorem to a combined necessary and sufficient condition for SUSY breaking which can be easily checked before solving the vacuum. The revised theorem provides a powerful tool to construct either SUSY breaking or SUSY vacua, and offers many practicable applications in low energy SUSY model building and string phenomenology.

Genitourinary medicine and surgery in Nelson's navy  

PubMed Central

Surgeons of the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic and revolutionary wars, between 1793 and 1815, were solely responsible for all health care of the officers, men, and boys of their ships. This paper examines the genitourinary medicine and surgery encountered by the naval surgeons at the time of Nelson. Primary sources are examined to explore the presentation, case mix, and management of genitourinary disease during this period. A general overview is given of the life and work of the Royal Naval surgeons at the end of the 18th century. The documents that were examined contained 39 surgeon's journals, these were written by 26 surgeons on 13 different ships. The journals contained 446 presentations to the sick list of men with genitourinary symptoms. The presenting symptoms are grouped together under the following headings; venereal disease, penile pathology, scrotal pain and swelling, urinary symptoms and retention, stone disease and trauma. Examination of these journals permits a glimpse of medical life in the Royal Navy during the time of Nelson. The case load and management of genitourinary disease shows the diversity of presentation to these surgeons. PMID:15998814

Nelson`s syndrome associated with a somatic frame shift mutation in the glucocorticoid recepter gene  

SciTech Connect

Nelson`s syndrome is the appearance and/or progression of ACTH-secreting pituitary macroadenomas in patients who had previously undergone bilateral adrenalectomy for Cushing`s disease. Extremely high plasma ACTH levels and aggressive neoplastic growth might be explained by the lack of appropriate glucocorticoid negative feedback due to defective glucocorticoid signal transduction. To study the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) gene in Nelson`s syndrome, DNA was extracted from pituitary adenomas and leukocytes of four patients with this condition and amplified by PCR for direct sequence analysis. In one of the tumors, a heterozygous mutation, consisting of an insertion of a thymine between complementary DNA nucleotides 1188 and 1189, was found in exon 2. This frame-shift mutation led to premature termination at amino acid residue 366 of the world-type coding sequence, excluding the expression of a functioning receptor protein from the defective allele. The mutation was not detected in the sequence of the GR gene in the patient`s leukocyte DNA, indicating a somatic origin. By lowering the receptor number in tumorous cells, this defect might have caused local resistance to negative glucocorticoid feedback similar to that caused by the presence of a null allele in a kindred with the generalized glucocorticoid resistance syndrome. P53 protein accumulation, previously reported in 60% of corticotropinomas, could not be detected in any of the four pituitary tumors examined by immunohistochemistry. We suggest that a somatic GR defect might have played a pathophysiological role in the tumorigenesis of the corticotropinoma bearing this mutation. 35 refs., 3 figs., 1 tab.

Lewy body disease and dementia with Lewy bodies  

PubMed Central

In 1976 we reported our first autopsied case with diffuse Lewy body disease (DLBD), the term of which we proposed in 1984. We also proposed the term Lewy body disease (LBD) in1980. Subsequently, we classified LBD into three types according to the distribution pattern of Lewy bodies: a brain stem type, a transitional type and a diffuse type. Later, we added the cerebral type. As we have proposed since 1980, LBD has recently been used as a generic term to include Parkinsons disease (PD), Parkinsons disease with dementia (PDD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), which was proposed in 1996 on the basis of our reports of DLBD. DLB is now known to be the second most frequent dementia following Alzheimers disease (AD). In this paper we introduce our studies of DLBD and LBD. PMID:25311140

The intrinsic conformation of a Lewis antigen: The Lewis trisaccharide  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The conformation of the Lewis x antigen has been determined, free of environmental perturbation, at low temperature in the gas phase to reveal a global minimum energy structure lying below the rigid stacked conformations adopted in aqueous solution, in the crystalline hydrate or when bound to proteins. The result suggests that water plays a key structural role in controlling the conformation of Lewis x and in consequence, its biological function.

Significance of Lewis phenotyping using saliva and gastric tissue: comparison with the Lewis phenotype inferred from Lewis and secretor genotypes.  

PubMed

Lewis phenotypes using various types of specimen were compared with the Lewis phenotype predicted from Lewis and Secretor genotypes. This is the first logical step in explaining the association between the Lewis expression and Helicobacter pylori. We performed a study of the followings on 209 patients who underwent routine gastroscopy: erythrocyte and saliva Lewis phenotyping, gastric Lewis phenotyping by the tissue array, and the Lewis and Secretor genes genotyping. The results of phenotyping were as follows [Le(a-b-), Le(a+b-), Le(a-b+), and Le(a+b+), respectively, in order]: erythrocyte (12.4%, 25.8%, 61.2%, and 0.5%); saliva (2.4%, 27.3%, 70.3%, and 0.0%); gastric mucosa (8.1%, 6.7%, 45.5%, and 39.7%). The frequency of Le, le (59/508) , le (59/1067) , and le (59) alleles was 74.6%, 21.3%, 3.1%, and 1.0%, respectively, among 418 alleles. The saliva Lewis phenotype was completely consistent with the Lewis phenotype inferred from Lewis and Secretor genotypes, but that of gastric mucosa could not be predicted from genotypes. Lewis phenotyping using erythrocytes is only adequate for transfusion needs. Saliva testing for the Lewis phenotype is a more reliable method for determining the peripheral Lewis phenotype of an individual and the gastric Lewis phenotype must be used for the study on the association between Helicobacter pylori and the Lewis phenotype.

Meriwether Lewis: was it suicide?  

PubMed

Even 200 years following the conclusion of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, questions remain about whether Meriwether Lewis' death was a suicide. The purpose of this article is to consider this issue by examining historical evidence from a psychological perspective. A risk factor model for suicide assessment (Sanchez, 2001) is employed to evaluate the nature of Lewis' historical, personal, psychosocial environmental, and clinical risk factors as well as protective factors. The authors conclude that though there is some evidence to support a theory of murder, Lewis was at a high suicide risk at the time of his death, and that the preponderance of the evidence indicates that he died by his own hand.

100 years of Lewy pathology.  

PubMed

In 1817, James Parkinson described the symptoms of the shaking palsy, a disease that was subsequently defined in greater detail, and named after Parkinson, by Jean-Martin Charcot. Parkinson expected that the publication of his monograph would lead to a rapid elucidation of the anatomical substrate of the shaking palsy; in the event, this process took almost a century. In 1912, Fritz Heinrich Lewy identified the protein aggregates that define Parkinson disease (PD) in some brain regions outside the substantia nigra. In 1919, Konstantin Nikolaevich Tretiakoff found similar aggregates in the substantia nigra and named them after Lewy. In the 1990s, ?-synuclein was identified as the main constituent of the Lewy pathology, and its aggregation was shown to be central to PD, dementia with Lewy bodies, and multiple system atrophy. In 2003, a staging scheme for idiopathic PD was introduced, according to which ?-synuclein pathology originates in the dorsal motor nucleus of the vagal nerve and progresses from there to other brain regions, including the substantia nigra. In this article, we review the relevance of Lewy's discovery 100 years ago for the current understanding of PD and related disorders. PMID:23183883

Mercury in breeding and wintering Nelson's Sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni).  

PubMed

The objective of this study was to increase our understanding of Hg exposure in birds with obligate ties to coastal salt marsh and inland wetland systems. Many species filling such niches are of conservation concern because of reduced size and quality of vital habitats. We used Nelson's Sparrow (Ammodramus nelsoni) as an indicator of regional mercury (Hg) availability in its breeding and wintering salt marsh and wetland habitats. Blood, breast feathers and the first primary feather were sampled from Nelson's Sparrows wintering in North Carolina coastal salt marshes and breeding in wetland systems in North Dakota (A. n. nelsoni) and Ontario, Canada (A. n. alterus). Wintering Nelson's Sparrow breast feathers contained 3.0 times as much Hg as birds breeding in North Dakota and 2.4 times as much Hg as those breeding in Ontario. Breeding Nelson's Sparrows in North Dakota exhibited blood Hg levels 4.9 times as high as those from birds breeding along James Bay and 7.6 times as high as those wintering in North Carolina. These results provide significant insight on the timing of molt in this species as well as how Hg exposure varies regionally and seasonally for these birds. Further, our results provide a better understanding of how and where Hg exposure may be a threat to Nelson's Sparrows and other birds with obligate ties to aquatic systems. PMID:21082242

Paracyclophane derivatives in frustrated Lewis pair chemistry.  

PubMed

The metal-free activation of hydrogen was achieved using [2.2]paracyclophane-derived bisphosphines as Lewis base in frustrated Lewis pair chemistry. The rigid scaffold allows the orientation of functional groups so that steric aspects can be studied without altering the electronic nature. Depending on the geometry, structurally different phosphonium hydridoborates were generated when the frustrated Lewis pairs were exposed to hydrogen. The bisphosphines were applied in the 1,4-hydrosilylation-hydrogenation domino reaction providing access to secondary silyl-protected alcohols from enones in one step. Additionally, the planar-chiral scaffold was applied for the synthesis of novel enantiopure Lewis acids and Lewis bases. PMID:23111727

Mercury in Nelson's Sparrow Subspecies at Breeding Sites  

PubMed Central

Background Mercury is a persistent, biomagnifying contaminant that can cause negative effects on ecosystems. Marshes are often areas of relatively high mercury methylation and bioaccumulation. Nelson's Sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni) use marsh habitats year-round and have been documented to exhibit tissue mercury concentrations that exceed negative effects thresholds. We sought to further characterize the potential risk of Nelson's Sparrows to mercury exposure by sampling individuals from sites within the range of each of its subspecies. Methodology/Principal Findings From 2009 to 2011, we captured adult Nelson's Sparrows at sites within the breeding range of each subspecies (A. n. nelsoni: Grand Forks and Upham, North Dakota; A. n. alterus: Moosonee, Ontario; and A. n. subvirgatus: Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick) and sampled breast feathers, the first primary feather (P1), and blood for total mercury analysis. Mean blood mercury in nelsoni individuals captured near Grand Forks ranged from 0.840.37 to 1.651.02 SD ppm among years, between 2.0 and 4.9 times as high as concentrations at the other sites (P<0.01). Breast feather mercury did not vary among sites within a given sampling year (site means ranged from 0.980.69 to 2.712.93 ppm). Mean P1 mercury in alterus (2.961.84 ppm fw) was significantly lower than in any other sampled population (5.252.246.773.51 ppm; P?0.03). Conclusions/Significance Our study further characterized mercury in Nelson's Sparrows near Grand Forks; we documented localized and potentially harmful mercury concentrations, indicating that this area may represent a biological mercury hotspot. This finding warrants further research to determine if wildlife populations of conservation or recreational interest in this area may be experiencing negative effects due to mercury exposure. We present preliminary conclusions about the risk of each sampled population to mercury exposure. PMID:22384194

Progressive supranuclear palsy with Lewy bodies  

Microsoft Academic Search

An autopsy case is reported which revealed not only clinical and neuropathological features of progressive supranuclear palsy, but also the presence of large numbers of Lewy bodies in the brain stem nuclei and cerebral cortex. This case seems to be progressive supranuclear palsy with Lewy bodies distributed as in Parkinson's disease. Such case has not been previously reported.

Latest concept of Lewy body disease.  

PubMed

We proposed the term 'Lewy body disease' (LBD) in 1980. Subsequently, we classified LBD into three types according to the distribution pattern of Lewy bodies: a brainstem type, a transitional type and a diffuse type. Later, we added the cerebral type. As we have proposed since 1980, LBD has recently been used as a generic term, including Parkinson's disease, Parkinson's disease with dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies. LBD has neuropathological characteristics whereby numerous Lewy bodies are present in the central and sympathetic nervous systems, and it is a type of alpha-synucleinopathy because the main component of Lewy body is alpha-synuclein. In this paper we explain the most recent concept of LBD from the historical viewpoint. PMID:24597591

Infrared Problem for the Nelson Model on Static Space-Times  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We consider the Nelson model on some static space-times and investigate the problem of existence of a ground state. Nelson models with variable coefficients arise when one replaces in the usual Nelson model the flat Minkowski metric by a static metric, allowing also the boson mass to depend on position. We investigate the existence of a ground state of the Hamiltonian in the presence of the infrared problem, i.e. assuming that the boson mass m( x) tends to 0 at spatial infinity. We show that if m( x) ? C | x|-1 at infinity for some C > 0 then the Nelson Hamiltonian has a ground state.

Failure Analysis of Main Flame Deflector Nelson Studs  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

NASA Structures engineers submitted two Nelson refractory studs from the main flame deflector at Launch Complex (LC) 39 A for analysis when they were observed to be missing a significant amount of material after launch. The damaged stud and an unused comparative stud were analyzed by macroscopic and microscopic examination along with metallographic evaluation of the microstructure. The stud lost material due to a combination of erosion and corrosion. Plain carbon steel readily forms an oxide layer in the coastal launch environment at Kennedy Space Center. The blast during a launch removes this brittle oxide layer, which then forms again post-launch, thereby further removing material. No indications of melting were observed.

Abstract This article provides a review of Sid Nelson's key contributions to the fields of drug metabolism and toxicology over a long and distinguished career. Selected examples are discussed to illustrate the diversity of Sid's research, with an emphasis on understanding mechanistic aspects of metabolic activation processes and structure-toxicity relationships. These examples serve to illustrate the importance of emerging mass spectrometry and isotope labeling techniques in elucidating details of foreign compound metabolism at the molecular level, an area in which Sid pioneered most effectively.

Treatment of Acromegaly, Cushing Disease and Nelson Syndrome  

PubMed Central

Since 1957 we have treated more than 429 patients who had pituitary neoplasms, most of which were hormone-secreting tumors. Long-term follow-up in the large group of patients treated for acromegaly shows a median survival of better than 16 years, with improvement over time. The short-term follow-up results in patients with Cushing* disease, Nelson syndrome and chromophobe adenoma are very encouraging. To compare these excellent results with those following surgical procedures, a large study of patients followed for a long period after the operations is needed. ImagesFigure 2.Figure 6.

New organoboranes in "frustrated Lewis pair" chemistry.  

PubMed

The chemistry of "frustrated Lewis pairs" (FLPs) has become a rapidly evolving field since it was introduced 6 years ago. It offers new strategies for small molecule activation and organic synthesis which have long been dominated by transition metals. This chapter focuses on the recent development of organoborane compounds and their applications in FLP chemistry. Modifying the organoboranes along with optimizing the Lewis base partners results in a wide range of reactivities, such as small molecule activation and hydrogenation catalysis. PMID:23111728

The NASA Lewis Research Center's research and technology accomplishments for fiscal year 1985 are summarized. The report is organized into five major sections covering aeronautics, aerospace technology, spaceflight systems, space station systems, and computational technology support. This organization of the report roughly parallels the organization of the Center into directorates. Where appropriate, subheadings are used to identify special topics under the major headings. Results of all research and technology work performed during the fiscal year are contained in Lewis-published technical reports and presentations prepared either by Lewis scientists and engineers or by contractor personnel. In addition, significant results are presented by university faculty or graduate students in technical sessions and in journals of the technical societies. For the reader who desires more information about a particular subject, the Lewis contact will provide that information or references. In 1985, five Lewis products were selected by Research and Development Magazine for IR-100 awards. All are described and identified. In addition, the Lewis Distinguished Paper for 1984 to 1985, which was selected by the Chief Scientist and a research advisory board, is included and so identified.

Classical limit of the Nelson model with cutoff  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this paper we analyze the classical limit of the Nelson model with cutoff, when both non-relativistic and relativistic particles number goes to infinity. We prove convergence of quantum observables to the solutions of classical equations, and find the evolution of quantum fluctuations around the classical solution. Furthermore, we analyze the convergence of transition amplitudes of normal ordered products of creation and annihilation operators between different types of initial states. In particular, the limit of normal ordered products between states with a fixed number of both relativistic and non-relativistic particles yields an unexpected quantum residue: instead of the product of classical solutions we obtain an average of the product of solutions corresponding to varying initial conditions.

Infrared problem for the Nelson model on static space-times  

E-print Network

We consider the Nelson model with variable coefficients and investigate the problem of existence of a ground state and the removal of the ultraviolet cutoff. Nelson models with variable coefficients arise when one replaces in the usual Nelson model the flat Minkowski metric by a static metric, allowing also the boson mass to depend on position. A physical example is obtained by quantizing the Klein-Gordon equation on a static space-time coupled with a non-relativistic particle. We investigate the existence of a ground state of the Hamiltonian in the presence of the infrared problem, i.e. assuming that the boson mass tends to 0 at infinity.

UPDATE ON DEMENTIA WITH LEWY BODIES  

PubMed Central

Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer disease (AD). DLB is characterized pathologically by Lewy body and Lewy neuritic pathology, often with variable levels of Alzheimer-type pathology. Core clinical features include fluctuating cognition, visual hallucinations, and parkinsonism resulting in greater impairments of quality of life, more caregiver burden, and higher health-related costs compared with AD. These issues, together with a high sensitivity to adverse events with treatment with antipsychotic agents, make the need for an early and accurate diagnosis of DLB essential. Unfortunately, current consensus criteria are highly specific but lack sufficient sensitivity. Use of composite risk scores may improve accuracy of clinical diagnosis. Imaging findings, particularly targeting dopaminergic systems have shown promise as potential markers to differentiate DLB from AD. A combination of non-pharmacologic treatments and pharmacotherapy interventions may maximize cognitive function and overall quality of life in DLB patients. PMID:25379359

A Lewis acid-promoted Pinner reaction  

PubMed Central

Summary Carbonitriles and alcohols react in a Lewis acid-promoted Pinner reaction to carboxylic esters. Best results are obtained with two equivalents of trimethylsilyl triflate as Lewis acid. Good yields are achieved with primary alcohols and aliphatic or benzylic carbonitriles, but the straightforward synthesis of acrylates and benzoates starting with acrylonitrile and benzonitrile, respectively, is similarly possible. Phenols are not acylated under these reaction conditions. The method has been used for the first total synthesis of the natural product monaspilosin. In the reaction of benzyl alcohols variable amounts of amides are formed in a Ritter-type side reaction. PMID:23946857

Nelson's syndrome: a review of the clinical manifestations, pathophysiology, and treatment strategies.  

PubMed

Nelson's syndrome is a rare clinical manifestation that occurs in 8%-47% of patients as a complication of bilateral adrenalectomy, a procedure that is used to control hypercortisolism in patients with Cushing's disease. First described in 1958 by Dr. Don Nelson, the disease has since become associated with a clinical triad of hyperpigmentation, excessive adrenocorticotropin secretion, and a corticotroph adenoma. Even so, for the past several years the diagnostic criteria and management of Nelson's syndrome have been inadequately studied. The primary treatment for Nelson's syndrome is transsphenoidal surgery. Other stand-alone therapies, which in many cases have been used as adjuvant treatments with surgery, include radiotherapy, radiosurgery, and pharmacotherapy. Prophylactic radiotherapy at the time of bilateral adrenalectomy can prevent Nelson's syndrome (protective effect). The most promising pharmacological agents are temozolomide, octreotide, and pasireotide, but these agents are often administered after transsphenoidal surgery. In murine models, rosiglitazone has shown some efficacy, but these results have not yet been found in human studies. In this article, the authors review the clinical manifestations, pathophysiology, diagnostic criteria, and efficacy of multimodal treatment strategies for Nelson's syndrome. PMID:25639316

Dementia with Lewy bodies: a pure case.  

PubMed

A pure case of autopsy-confirmed dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is described. The patient presented with distinctive verbal fluency deficits in the context of mild language impairment, intact recognition memory, and impaired paragraph recall. Neuroimaging (CT and SPECT) showed progressive medial temporal lobe atrophy. Neuropathology revealed Lewy bodies, degeneration in the substantia nigra, nucleus basalis of Meynert (Nakano & Hirano, 1984), and locus ceruleus, but no pathology characteristic of Alzheimer's disease. It is in this sense that the case is "pure" DLB. Early neuropsychological diagnosis of DLB is essential (Salmon et al., 1996) given the potentially fatal hazard of neuroleptics (McKeith et al., 1992) and the difficulties associated with clinical neurological diagnoses (Litvan et al., 1998).

[Lewis antigens in human colon carcinoma].  

PubMed

Aberrant glycosylation is a common phenomenon accompanying colon carcinoma progression. The changes observed include increased expression of Lewis blood group family antigens, particularly Lex, sialyl Lex and sialyl Lexa. Recently it was shown that these antigenic epitopes may play an important role in cell-cell homotypic as well as heterotypic adhesive interactions. This work presents a phenotypic characteristic of 11 human colon carcinoma cell lines of different degree of differentiation. Expression of potential ligands for endogenous cellular lectins: Lewis antigens, CEA and CD44v6 antigens was evaluated by cytofluorimetry. The aim of the work is to select adhesive and invasive colon carcinoma cells with specified cell surface antigen pattern, for studies on adhesive interactions with endothelial cells, occurring during early steps of metastasis.

Polymerization by classical and frustrated Lewis pairs.  

PubMed

Main-group classical and frustrated Lewis pairs (CLPs and FLPs) comprising strong Lewis acids (LAs) and strong Lewis bases (LBs) are highly active for polymerization of conjugated polar alkenes, affording typically high molecular weight polymers with relatively narrow molecular weight distributions. Especially effective systems are the Lewis pairs (LPs) consisting of the strong LA Al(C6F5)3 and strong LBs, such as achiral phosphines and chiral chelating diphosphines, N-heterocyclic carbenes, and phosphazene superbases, for polymerization of methacrylates and acrylamides as well as renewable ?-methylene-?-butyrolactones. Chain initiation involves cooperative addition of LPs to the monomer to generate zwitterionic active species, and chain propagation proceeds via a bimetallic, activated-monomer addition mechanism. Transition metal nucleophile/electrophile pairs comprising neutral metallocene bis(ester enolate)s and strong LAs E(C6F5)3 (E = Al, B) generate two drastically different polymerization systems, depending on the LA. With E = Al, catalyst activation and chain initiating events lead to dually active ion-pairs, thereby effecting ion-pairing polymerization that affords polymers with unique stereo-multiblock microstructures. With E = B, on the other hand, the FLP-induced catalyst activation generates metallacyclic cations paired with the hydridoborate anion [HB(C6F5)3](-); uniquely, such ion-pairs effect catalytic polymerization of conjugated polar alkenes by an H-shuttling mechanism, with the cation catalyzing chain growth and the anion promoting chain transfer by shuttling the hydride between the cation and anion centers through the neutral borane.

Lewis Information Network (LINK): Background and overview  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The NASA Lewis Research Center supports many research facilities with many isolated buildings, including wind tunnels, test cells, and research laboratories. These facilities are all located on a 350 acre campus adjacent to the Cleveland Hopkins Airport. The function of NASA-Lewis is to do basic and applied research in all areas of aeronautics, fluid mechanics, materials and structures, space propulsion, and energy systems. These functions require a great variety of remote high speed, high volume data communications for computing and interactive graphic capabilities. In addition, new requirements for local distribution of intercenter video teleconferencing and data communications via satellite have developed. To address these and future communications requirements for the next 15 yrs, a project team was organized to design and implement a new high speed communication system that would handle both data and video information in a common lab-wide Local Area Network. The project team selected cable television broadband coaxial cable technology as the communications medium and first installation of in-ground cable began in the summer of 1980. The Lewis Information Network (LINK) became operational in August 1982 and has become the backbone of all data communications and video.

Speculations regarding the history of Donum Vitae.  

PubMed

In March 1987, the Vatican published Instruction on Respect for Human Life in its Origin and on the Dignity of Procreation, also known as Donum Vitae. Prepared by the Roman Catholic Church's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), Donum Vitae is intended as a magisterial teaching document that invites further reflection on the relationship between natural moral law and reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization. To aid it in its work, the CDF consulted anonymous religious and lay experts in the fields of moral theology, genetics, biology, medicine, and physiology. Harvey speculates on the history of Donum Vitae's preparation, particularly as to the identities of the individuals whom the CDF consulted. He raises the possibility of a biased consultation process, one that called upon moral theologians whose views would be known to support pre-established conclusions. PMID:2691611

A Biography of Distinguished Scientist Gilbert Newton Lewis (by Edward S. Lewis)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Edward Mellen Press: Lewiston, NY, 1998. 114 pp + index. ISBN 0-7734-8284-9. $69.95. There may not be a surname better known to students of chemistry than Lewis, from the Lewis electron-dot diagrams and the Lewis theory of acids and bases. More advanced students may know of the groundbreaking textbook Thermodynamics, by Lewis and Randall. Yet few Americans know much about this remarkable U.S.-born scholar, whose contributions equal those of the greatest scientists. He is a chemist-educator of whom we should be as proud and as well informed as we are of Linus Pauling, who was part of the westward movement of science in this country that G. N. Lewis began, or of the recently deceased Glenn Seaborg, who was one of the many students of Lewis who achieved renown. Gilbert N. Lewis was born in Weymouth, Massachusetts, in 1875, but his family moved to near Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1884. He spent two years at the University of Nebraska, but then moved to Harvard when his father became an executive at Merchants Trust Company in Boston. Young Lewis (then only 17) was also said to have been disappointed with the quality of education in Nebraska, and this may have been part of the impetus for the family's move east. After earning his baccalaureate at Harvard, he taught for a year at Phillips Andover Academy before returning to Harvard to study for his doctorate, which he completed 100 years ago, in 1899, under T. W. Richards. Lewis's doctoral work was on the thermodynamics of zinc and cadmium amalgams. At that time, physical chemistry was only beginning to achieve recognition as a branch of science, and its boundaries were ill defined. Edward Lewis quotes his father as often saying, "Physical chemistry is anything interesting." Like many chemists of his time, Lewis went to Europe to complete his preparation for a career; he was in the laboratories of Ostwald in Leipzig and Nernst in Gttingen in 1900-1901. On his return to the United States, he was an instructor at Harvard until 1904, when he accepted a position that would not be considered a shrewd career move: Superintendent of Weights and Measures in Manila, Philippines! He was there only one year, but it was apparently a productive time, both in a minimally equipped laboratory and with the possible nascence of some of his ideas about bonding. In 1905, Lewis accepted a staff position at MIT, under A. A. Noyes, where he remained until 1912. At MIT, he continued his experimental work on thermodynamic systems and the development of modern thermodynamics, following the lead of J. W. Gibbs, whose work was being largely ignored by other chemists. As Noyes moved increasingly into administrative responsibilities, Lewis took over more and more of the supervision of scientific work in the laboratory. It was the capable job that he did for Noyes that led to his being offered a Professorship and Chair of the College of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. The same spirit of adventure that took Lewis to Manila may be what led to his moving to scientifically backward California. In 1912, there was no serious science going on the Left Coast, and Berkeley was isolated from the nearest civilization (Chicago) by days of travel. Lewis initiated the expansion of great science westward, not only to Berkeley, but also to Caltech (in those days Throop Institute), UCLA, and Stanford. By dint of his contributions to thermodynamics and bonding theory (suggesting that electrons bond in pairs, long before there was quantum mechanical justification for such a strange idea), and his organizational and leadership talents, he turned the Berkeley Chemistry Department from a nonentity into one of the finest anywhere. Later in his career, he contributed to the understanding of the role of isotopes in chemistry and physics. This biography includes a useful listing of Lewis's 168 scientific publications. In an age when many renowned scientists have multiples of this number, it is perhaps good to be reminded that quality counts, too. His story deserves much greater recognition (he should ha

Global Warming and Lewis and Clark College  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This website describes the actions undertaken by students at Lewis and Clark College to comply with the greenhouse gas emissions targets called for in the Kyoto Protocol. The effort was student-driven, and will cost approximately $10 per student. This achievement is the result of a three-year student campaign involving greenhouse gas inventories, student polls demonstrating overwhelming support, emissions reductions on campus, and the use of student fees to purchase "offsets" from the Climate Trust, a Portland nonprofit. The site provides links to articles by the students who spearheaded the movement, as well as more in-depth coverage of their efforts.

Ultrafast hydrolysis of a lewis photoacid.  

PubMed

This study explores the concept that electronic excitation can dramatically enhance Lewis acidity. Specifically, it is shown that photoexcitation transforms an electron-deficient organic compound of negligible Lewis acidity in its electronic ground state into a potent excited-state Lewis acid that releases a proton from a nearby water molecule in 3.1 ps. It was shown previously (Peon et al. J. Phys. Chem. A 2001, 105, 5768) that the excited state of methyl viologen (MV(2+)) is quenched rapidly in aqueous solution with the formation of an unidentified photoproduct. In this study, the quenching mechanism and the identity of the photoproduct were investigated by the femtosecond transient absorption and fluorescence upconversion techniques. Transient absorption signals at UV probe wavelengths reveal a long-lived species with a pH-dependent lifetime due to reaction with hydronium ions at a bimolecular rate of 3.1 10(9) M(-1) s(-1). This species is revealed to be a charge-transfer complex consisting of a ground-state MV(2+) ion and a hydroxide ion formed when a water molecule transfers a proton to the bulk solvent. Formation of a contact ion pair between MV(2+) and hydroxide shifts the absorption spectrum of the former ion by a few nm to longer wavelengths, yielding a transient absorption spectrum with a distinctive triangle wave appearance. The slight shift of this spectrum, which is in excellent agreement with steady-state difference spectra recorded for MV(2+) at high pH, is consistent with an ion pair but not with a covalent adduct (pseudobase). The long lifetime of the ion pair at neutral pH indicates that dissociation occurs many orders of magnitude more slowly than predicted by the Smoluchowski-Debye equation. Remarkably, there is no evidence of geminate recombination, suggesting that the proton that is transferred to the solvent is conducted at least several water shells away. Although the hydrolysis mechanism has yet to be fully established, evidence suggests that the strongly oxidizing excited state of MV(2+) triggers the proton-coupled oxidation of a water molecule. The observed kinetic isotope effect of 1.7 seen in D2O vs H2O is of the magnitude expected for an ultrafast concerted proton-electron transfer reaction. The ultrafast hydrolysis seen here may be a general excited-state quenching mechanism for electronically excited Lewis acids and other powerful photooxidants in aqueous solution. PMID:25510461

A Lewis acid-mediated conformational switch.  

PubMed

Molecules that change conformation in response to a stimulus have numerous uses, such as artificial chemoreceptors, novel drug delivery strategies and liquid crystal technology. Here we describe the design, synthesis and conformational behaviour of an isonicotinamide-substituted diphenylacetylene upon recognition of Lewis acids, including metalloporphyrins. Binding of these at a remote site - the pyridyl nitrogen - increases hydrogen-bond donor ability of the proximal amide NH, causing an increased preference for the alkyne rotamer in which this hydrogen bond is maintained.

NASA Lewis Research Center Futuring Workshop  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

On October 21 and 22, 1986, the Futures Group ran a two-day Futuring Workshop on the premises of NASA Lewis Research Center. The workshop had four main goals: to acquaint participants with the general history of technology forecasting; to familiarize participants with the range of forecasting methodologies; to acquaint participants with the range of applicability, strengths, and limitations of each method; and to offer participants some hands-on experience by working through both judgmental and quantitative case studies. Among the topics addressed during this workshop were: information sources; judgmental techniques; quantitative techniques; merger of judgment with quantitative measurement; data collection methods; and dealing with uncertainty.

Ermakov-Lewis invariants and Reid systems  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Reid's mth-order generalized Ermakov systems of nonlinear coupling constant ? are equivalent to an integrable Emden-Fowler equation. The standard Ermakov-Lewis invariant is discussed from this perspective, and a closed formula for the invariant is obtained for the higher-order Reid systems (m?3). We also discuss the parametric solutions of these systems of equations through the integration of the Emden-Fowler equation and present an example of a dynamical system for which the invariant is equivalent to the total energy.

A zwitterionic carbanion frustrated by boranes--dihydrogen cleavage with weak Lewis acids via an "inverse" frustrated Lewis pair approach.  

PubMed

The synthesis, structural characterization, and acid-base chemistry of [C(SiMe2OCH2CH2OMe)3]Na (2), a sterically encumbered zwitterionic organosodium compound, is reported. 2 is a strong Brnsted base that forms frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs) with a number of boron-containing Lewis acids ranging from weakly Lewis acidic aryl and alkyl boranes to various alkyl borates. These intermolecular FLPs readily cleave H2, which confirms that even poor Lewis acids can engage in FLP-mediated H2 cleavage provided that the present bulky base is of sufficiently high Brnsted basicity.

Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Established in 1988 with a $5 million endowment from Ralph and Goldy Lewis, the Ralph and Goldy Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies was established "to promote the study, understanding and solution of regional policy issues, with special reference to Southern California." Directed by Paul Ong, the Center works on a variety of programs, including studying the impact of welfare-to-work programs, immigration, pollution prevention policies, and economic development strategies. Of course, one of the site's highlights is its strong publication section. Here visitors can download various working papers, policy briefs, and annual reports. Some of the more recent works include "Arts and Cultural Institutions in Los Angeles: Patterns of Utilization" and "The State of Southern California's Housing". The site also features several nice sets of maps, including a time series of maps from 1930 to 2000 that track the population density in Los Angeles County. For those readers of the Scout Report who find themselves in Southern California, there is also a listing of upcoming events sponsored by the Center that take place at UCLA.

Minimally invasive and robotic Ivor Lewis esophagectomy  

PubMed Central

Esophageal cancer is the eighth most common malignancy and the sixth most common cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Esophagectomy provides a curative treatment but carries significant morbidity and mortality. Ivor Lewis esophagectomy (ILE) is one of the most commonly employed open techniques of esophagectomy. Minimally invasive approaches have been explored in ILE in an effort to reduce operative morbidity. This article reviews recent literature of minimally invasive Ivor Lewis esophagectomy (MI-ILE), discusses its clinical outcomes, and introduces the robotic approach in MI-ILE. MI-ILE has demonstrated comparable postoperative outcomes to open ILE, and it has shown potential to reduce blood loss and length of hospitalization. Due to limited studies, no significant improvement of long-term survival has been reported in MI-ILE. Robotic ILE is safe and feasible, but more studies are needed to prove identifiable benefits. Randomized controlled trials comparing MI-ILE or robotic ILE with conventional open ILE are warranted to determine the optimal surgical procedure for the treatment of esophageal cancer.

Lewis & Clark: The National Bicentennial Exhibition  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Beginning in January 2004, the Lewis & Clark National Bicentennial Exhibition was set on display in St. Louis to commemorate this rather pivotal event in American history -- the first transcontinental journey across North America. This complementary online exhibition is designed to let people follow in the footsteps of the expedition, and in the words of the introduction, "to meet people different from us in mind and time, and to learn to know them." The exhibit's materials can be accessed in a number of ways, including by theme, through following the trail with an interactive map, or by searching or browsing a gallery of the many pieces of visual and historical ephemera digitally archived here. Using the interactive map is wholly engrossing, as each site allows users to toggle the historic map of the journey with a contemporary map, listen to various sounds associated with each place, and in a few instances, listen to readings from the words of various persons on the expedition. In the themes area, visitors can browse through such topically arranged pieces on Discovering of Diplomacy, A World of Women, and Trade and Property. Finally, there is the collection of over 350 artifacts available for online viewing, including Meriwether Lewis's watch and the will of William Clark.

Lewy Body Pathology in Familial Alzheimer Disease  

PubMed Central

Background The origin and significance of Lewy bodies and neurites (Lewy body pathology [LBP]) in Alzheimer disease (AD) are poorly understood. Objective To examine LBP in the brainstem, limbic cortex, and neocortex of a large number of familial AD cases with mutations in 2 presenilin (PSEN) genes. Methods Twenty-five familial AD cases with 9 known PSEN 1 mutations and 14 familial AD cases with a single PSEN 2 mutation (N141I) were examined for LBP using ?-synuclein immunohistochemistry and sampling of multiple brainstem and cortical regions. Results The amygdala was the most vulnerable site for LBP. In fact, virtually all (24 [96%] of 25 cases) of the PSEN 1 mutation cases had LBP in the amygdala. The PSEN 1 mutation cases also had more frequent LBP in the amygdala and neocortex than those with the PSEN 2 mutation. However, within families with a single mutation of either PSEN 1 or PSEN 2, there was frequent variability of the LBP. Conclusion These findings suggest that there are genetic influences on the presence of LBP in familial AD as demonstrated by the differences between PSEN 1 and PSEN 2 mutation cases. PMID:16533963

Discovery of sialyl Lewis A and Lewis X modified protein cancer biomarkers using high density antibody arrays  

PubMed Central

We report on a high-dimensional method to globally profile glycoproteins that are modified with sialyl Lewis A or Lewis X glycans. Specifically, glycoproteins in serum or plasma are fractionated on a high-density antibody microarray (i.e., each are localized to their specific antibody spot) and are specifically detected via fluorescently labeled anti-sialyl Lewis A or anti- Lewis X antibodies with quantification in a microarray scanner. Non-glycosylated proteins or glycoproteins with other glycan motifs do not interfere with this assay. The whole process is very rapid and applicable for high-throughput screening without the need for purification of glycoproteins from the samples. Using these methods, sialyl Lewis A or Lewis X moieties were found to be expressed on many previously unreported secreted or membrane associated proteins. Furthermore, the combination of sialyl Lewis A or Lewis X content with protein level increased the ability of certain glycoproteins to distinguish 30 patients with stage III and IV colon cancer from 60 control samples. Thus, this highly sensitive method is capable of discovering novel specific glycan modifications on proteins, many of which will likely be useful for disease detection and monitoring. PMID:24185138

Formylborane formation with frustrated Lewis pair templates.  

PubMed

Boranes R2 BH react with carbon monoxide by forming the respective borane carbonyl compounds R2 BH(CO). The formation of (C6 F5 )2 BH(CO) derived from the Piers borane, HB(C6 F5 )2 , is a typical example. Subsequent CO-hydroboration does not take place, since the formation of the formylborane is usually endothermic. However, an "?(2) -formylborane" was formed by CO-hydroboration with the Piers borane at vicinal phosphane/borane frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) templates. Subsequent treatment with pyridine liberated the intact formylborane from the FLP framework, and (pyridine)(C6 F5 )2 B?CHO was then isolated as a stable compound. This product underwent typical reactions of carbonyl compounds, such as Wittig olefination. PMID:24338931

Chiral organoborane Lewis pairs derived from pyridylferrocene.  

PubMed

In an effort to develop a new class of redox-active chiral Lewis pairs, pyridine and borane moieties with different steric and electronic properties were introduced onto a planar chiral 1,2-disubstituted ferrocene framework. Metathesis of lithiated, stannylated, or mercuriated pyridylferrocenes with boron halides afforded (pR)-2-[bis(pentafluorophenyl)boryl]-1-(3,5-dimethylpyrid-2-yl)ferrocene (4-Pf), (pR)-2-[dimesitylboryl]-1-(3,5-dimethylpyrid-2-yl)ferrocene (4-Mes), (pS)-2-(bis(pentafluorophenyl)boryl)-1-(2-trimethylsilylpyrid-6-yl)ferrocene (5-Pf), or (pS)-2-[dimesitylboryl]-1-(2-trimethylsilylpyrid-6-yl)ferrocene (5-Mes). The borylated products were analyzed by multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, HRMS, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Chiral HPLC and optical-rotation measurements were employed to assess the stereoselectivity of the borylation process and to establish the correct stereochemical assignments. The strength of the B-N interactions were investigated in solution and in the solid state. Compounds 4-Pf and 4-Mes formed robust 'closed' B-N heterocyclic systems that proved to be perfectly stable to air and moisture, whereas 5-Pf established a dynamic equilibrium, in which the B-N heterocycle was observed exclusively at room temperature, but opened up at high temperature according to (19)F?NMR exchange spectroscopy data. As a consequence, 5-Pf reacted readily with a molecule of water to generate a ring-opened pyridinium borate. The combination of bulky borane and bulky pyridyl groups in 5-Mes led to a completely 'open' frustrated Lewis pair system with uncomplexed pyridine and borane groups, even at room temperature. Electrochemical studies were performed and the effect of preparative ferrocene oxidation on the structural features was also explored. PMID:24919698

Polysomnographic Findings in Dementia With Lewy Bodies  

PubMed Central

Introduction The clinical features of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) during wakefulness are well known. Other than REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), only limited data exists on other sleep disturbances and disorders in DLB. We sought to characterize the polysomnographic (PSG) findings in a series of DLB patients with sleep-related complaints. Methods Retrospective study of patients with DLB who underwent clinical PSG at Mayo Clinic Rochester or Mayo Clinic Jacksonville over an almost 11 year span for evaluation of dream enactment behavior, excessive nocturnal movements, sleep apnea, hypersomnolence, or insomnia. The following variables were analyzed: respiratory disturbance index (RDI) in disordered breathing events/hour, periodic limb movement arousal index (PLMAI), arousals for no apparent reason (AFNAR), total arousal index (TAI), presence of REM sleep without atonia (RSWA), and percent sleep efficiency (SE). Results Data on 78 patients (71M, 7F) were analyzed. The mean age was 71 8 years. Seventy-five (96%) patients had histories of recurrent dream enactment during sleep with 83% showing confirmation of RSWA +/- dream enactment during PSG. Mean RDI = 11.9 5.8, PLMAI = 5.9 8.5, AFNARI = 10.7 12.0, and TAI = 26.6 17.4. SE was <80% in 72% of the sample, <70% in 49%, and <60% in 24%. In patients who did not show evidence of significant disordered breathing (23 with RDI<5), 62% of arousals were AFNARs. In those patients who had significant disordered breathing (55 with RDI ? 5), 36% of arousals were AFNARs. Six patients underwent evaluations with PSG plus MSLT. Two patients had mean initial sleep latencies less than five minutes, and both had RDI<5. No patient had any sleep onset rapid eye movement periods. Nineteen patients have undergone neuropathologic examination, and 18 have had limbic- or neocortical-predominant Lewy body pathology. One had progressive supranuclear palsy, but no REM sleep was recorded in prior PSG. Conclusions In patients with DLB and sleep-related complaints, several sleep disturbances in addition to RBD are frequently present. In this sample, about three quarters had a significant number of arousals not accounted for by a movement or breathing disturbance, and the primary sleep disorders do not appear to entirely account for the poor sleep efficiency in DLB, especially in those without a significant breathing disorder. Further studies are warranted to better understand the relationship between disturbed sleep, arousal and DLB; such characterization may provide insights into potential avenues of treatment of symptoms which could impact quality of life.

Lewis-number effects on edge-flame propagation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Activation-energy asymptotics is employed to explore effects of the Lewis number, the ratio of thermal to fuel diffusivity, in a one-dimensional model of steady motion of edges of reaction sheets. The propagation velocity of the edge is obtained as a function of the relevant Damkhler number, the ratio of the diffusion time to the chemical time. The results show how Lewis numbers different from unity can increase or decrease propagation velocities. Increasing the Lewis number increases the propagation velocity at large Damkhler numbers and decreases it at small Damkhler numbers. Advancing-edge and retreating-edge solutions are shown to exist simultaneously, at the same Damkhler number, if the Lewis number is sufficiently large. This multiplicity of solutions has a bearing on potential edge-flame configurations in non-uniform flows.

The generalized Fenyes-Nelson model for free scalar field theory  

E-print Network

The generalized Fenyes--Nelson model of quantum mechanics is applied to the free scalar field. The resulting Markov field is equivalent to the Euclidean Markov field with the times scaled by a common factor which depends on the diffusion parameter. This result is consistent between Guerra's earlier work on stochastic quantization of scalar fields. It suggests a deep connection between Euclidean field theory and the stochastic interpretation of quantum mechanics. The question of Lorentz covariance is also discussed.

Catalytic amounts of the Lewis acid B(C6 F5 )3 enable the hydroamination of terminal alkynes by aryl amines to the corresponding enamines. In accord with the results of stoichiometric reactions, the mechanism of this reaction involves a frustrated Lewis pair (FLP). The hydroamination can be followed by an FLP-catalyzed hydrogenation, resulting in a one-pot stepwise synthesis of amine derivatives. PMID:24115279

Relationship between blood mercury levels and components of male song in Nelson's sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni).  

PubMed

Mercury (Hg) adversely affects the health and behavior of exposed wildlife; however, behavioral effects remain largely unknown. Changes in avian singing behavior may affect a male's fitness because song reveals male quality and thus influences female mate choice and male territory-holding ability. Nelson's sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni) live exclusively on salt marshes and risk high levels of Hg exposure and bioaccumulation. We recorded songs of male Nelson's sparrows at two locations with different Hg exposure to determine if total blood Hg concentration was related to song characteristics, as previously reported for other species. Males with higher blood Hg levels sang at higher maximum tonal frequency, but blood Hg and site location did not influence low tonal frequency and bout duration, contrary to predictions based on other species. Within the contaminated site, Hg levels were related to bouts per minute and gap duration, such that males at that site sang faster songs. Hg influences hormones and alters brain development, raising questions about specific effects on the brains and singing behavior of male Nelson's sparrows. PMID:22945769

NASA Lewis Stirling engine computer code evaluation  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

In support of the U.S. Department of Energy's Stirling Engine Highway Vehicle Systems program, the NASA Lewis Stirling engine performance code was evaluated by comparing code predictions without engine-specific calibration factors to GPU-3, P-40, and RE-1000 Stirling engine test data. The error in predicting power output was -11 percent for the P-40 and 12 percent for the Re-1000 at design conditions and 16 percent for the GPU-3 at near-design conditions (2000 rpm engine speed versus 3000 rpm at design). The efficiency and heat input predictions showed better agreement with engine test data than did the power predictions. Concerning all data points, the error in predicting the GPU-3 brake power was significantly larger than for the other engines and was mainly a result of inaccuracy in predicting the pressure phase angle. Analysis into this pressure phase angle prediction error suggested that improvements to the cylinder hysteresis loss model could have a significant effect on overall Stirling engine performance predictions.

Lewis inverse design code (LINDES): Users manual  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The method of complex characteristics and hodograph transformation for the design of shockless airfoils was introduced by Bauer, Garabedian, and Korn and has been extended by the author to design subcritical and supercritical cascades with high solidities and large inlet angles. This new capability was achieved by introducing a new conformal mapping of the hodograph domain onto an ellipse and expanding the solution in terms of Chebyshev polynomials. A new computer code, the NASA Lewis inverse design code, was developed based on this idea. This new design code is an efficient method for the design of airfoils in cascade. In particular, the design of subcritical cascades of airfoils is a very fast, robust, and versatile process. The inverse design code can be made to interact with a turbulent boundary layer calculation to obtain airfoils with no separated flows at the design condition. This report is intended to serve as a users manual for this design code. Material previously reported by the author is included here for completeness and quick access to the user. The manual contains a description of the method followed by a discussion of the design procedure and examples. The input parameters necessary to run the code are then described and their default values given. Output listings corresponding to six different blade shapes designed with the code are given, as well as the necessary input data to reproduce the computer runs. The examples have been chosen to show that a wide range of applications can be covered with the code, ranging from supercritical propeller sections to wind tunnel turning vanes that can operate with a large inlet flow angle range.

Pareidolias: complex visual illusions in dementia with Lewy bodies.  

PubMed

Patients rarely experience visual hallucinations while being observed by clinicians. Therefore, instruments to detect visual hallucinations directly from patients are needed. Pareidolias, which are complex visual illusions involving ambiguous forms that are perceived as meaningful objects, are analogous to visual hallucinations and have the potential to be a surrogate indicator of visual hallucinations. In this study, we explored the clinical utility of a newly developed instrument for evoking pareidolic illusions, the Pareidolia test, in patients with dementia with Lewy bodies-one of the most common causes of visual hallucinations in the elderly. Thirty-four patients with dementia with Lewy bodies, 34 patients with Alzheimer's disease and 26 healthy controls were given the Pareidolia test. Patients with dementia with Lewy bodies produced a much greater number of pareidolic illusions compared with those with Alzheimer's disease or controls. A receiver operating characteristic analysis demonstrated that the number of pareidolias differentiated dementia with Lewy bodies from Alzheimer's disease with a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 88%. Full-length figures and faces of people and animals accounted for >80% of the contents of pareidolias. Pareidolias were observed in patients with dementia with Lewy bodies who had visual hallucinations as well as those who did not have visual hallucinations, suggesting that pareidolias do not reflect visual hallucinations themselves but may reflect susceptibility to visual hallucinations. A sub-analysis of patients with dementia with Lewy bodies who were or were not treated with donepzil demonstrated that the numbers of pareidolias were correlated with visuoperceptual abilities in the former and with indices of hallucinations and delusional misidentifications in the latter. Arousal and attentional deficits mediated by abnormal cholinergic mechanisms and visuoperceptual dysfunctions are likely to contribute to the development of visual hallucinations and pareidolias in dementia with Lewy bodies.

On the mechanism of hydrogen activation by frustrated Lewis pairs.  

PubMed

We report herein a comprehensive theoretical study of the thermodynamics and kinetics of molecular hydrogen activation by frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs). A series of intermolecularly combined boranes (Lewis acids) and phosphines (Lewis bases), with experimentally established different reactivities towards H2, have been subjected to DFT and (SCS-)MP2 calculations, and analyzed in terms of their structural properties, the energetics of association of the FLPs, and the kinetics of their interactions with H2 and hydrogenation to the ion-pair products. The analysis included the following steps: 1) assessment of the ability/inability of the Lewis species to preorganize into FLPs with an optimum arrangement of the acid and base sites for preconditioning the reaction with H2 , 2) comprehension of the different thermodynamics of hydrogenation of the selected FLPs by comparing the Gibbs energies of the overall reactions, and 3) estimation of the mechanism of the activation of H2 by identifying the reaction steps and the associated kinetic barriers. The results of our studies correlate well with experimental findings and have clarified the reasons for the observed different reactivities of the investigated systems, ranging from reversible or nonreversible activation to no reaction with H2. The derived predictions could assist the future design of Lewis acid-base systems with desired properties and applicability as metal-free hydrogenation catalysts. PMID:24318267

Lewis rats have greater response impulsivity than Fischer rats.  

PubMed

Impulsivity, a tendency toward immediate action without consideration of future consequences, is associated with a wide array of problematic behaviors. Response impulsivity, a type of behaviorally-assessed impulsivity characterized by behavioral disinhibition, is also associated with health risk behaviors. Response impulsivity is distinct from choice impulsivity, which is characterized by intolerance for delay. Lewis rats have higher levels of choice impulsivity than Fischer rats (Anderson & Woolverton, 2005; Madden et al., 2008; Stein et al., 2012). However, no studies have examined whether Lewis and Fischer rats have different levels of response impulsivity. The present research examined response impulsivity in the two rat strains. Subjects were 16 male Lewis and Fischer rats. Rats' response impulsivity was measured using the Five Choice Serial Reaction Time Task (5-CSRTT). In addition, their locomotor activity was measured in locomotor activity chambers. Lewis rats had more premature responses than Fischer rats during the 5-CSRTT assessment [F(1, 14)=5.34, p<0.05], indicating higher levels of response impulsivity. Locomotor activity did not differ between rat strain groups [F(1, 14)=3.05, p=.10], suggesting that overall movement did not account for group differences in response impulsivity on the 5-CSRTT. It can be concluded from this research that Lewis rats have higher levels of response impulsivity than Fischer rats, and therefore provide a valid rat model of individual differences in impulsivity.

Risk factors for dementia with Lewy bodies  

PubMed Central

Objective: To determine the risk factors associated with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Methods: We identified 147 subjects with DLB and sampled 2 sex- and age-matched cognitively normal control subjects for each case. We also identified an unmatched comparison group of 236 subjects with Alzheimer disease (AD). We evaluated 19 candidate risk factors in the study cohort. Results: Compared with controls, subjects with DLB were more likely to have a history of anxiety (odds ratio; 95% confidence interval) (7.4; 3.516; p < 0.0001), depression (6.0; 3.79.5; p < 0.0001), stroke (2.8; 1.36.3; p = 0.01), a family history of Parkinson disease (PD) (4.6; 2.58.6; p < 0.0001), and carry APOE ?4 alleles (2.2; 1.53.3; p < 0.0001), but less likely to have had cancer (0.44; 0.270.70; p = 0.0006) or use caffeine (0.29; 0.140.57; p < 0.0001) with a similar trend for alcohol (0.65; 0.421.0; p = 0.0501). Compared with subjects with AD, subjects with DLB were younger (72.5 vs 74.9 years, p = 0.021) and more likely to be male (odds ratio; 95% confidence interval) (5.3; 3.38.5; p < 0.0001), have a history of depression (4.3; 2.47.5; p < 0.0001), be more educated (2.5; 1.15.6; p = 0.031), have a positive family history of PD (5.0; 2.410; p < 0.0001), have no APOE ?4 alleles (0.61; 0.400.93; p = 0.02), and to have had an oophorectomy before age 45 years (7.6; 1.539; p = 0.015). Conclusion: DLB risk factors are an amalgam of those for AD and PD. Smoking and education, which have opposing risk effects on AD and PD, are not risk factors for DLB; however, depression and low caffeine intake, both risk factors for AD and PD, increase risk of DLB more strongly than in either.

Habitat Selection and Reproductive Success of Lewis's Woodpecker (Melanerpes lewis) at Its Northern Limit  

PubMed Central

Lewis's Woodpecker (Melanerpes lewis) has experienced population declines in both Canada and the United States and in 2010 was assigned a national listing of threatened in Canada. We conducted a two-year study (20042005) of this species at its northern range limit, the South Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Our main objective was to determine whether the habitat features that influenced nest-site selection also predicted nest success, or whether other factors (e.g. cavity dimensions, clutch initiation date or time of season) were more important. Nest tree decay class, density of suitable cavities and total basal area of large trees were the best predictors of nest-site selection, but these factors were unrelated to nesting success. Estimates of demographic parameters (mean SE) included daily nest survival rate (0.9880.003, years combined), nest success (0.520.08), clutch size (5.000.14 eggs), female fledglings per successful nest (1.310.11), and annual productivity (0.680.12 female fledglings per nest per year). Although higher nest survival was associated with both early and late initiated clutches, early-initiated clutches allowed birds to gain the highest annual productivity as early clutches were larger. Nests in deep cavities with small entrances experienced lower predation risk especially during the peak period of nest predation. We concluded that nest-site selection can be predicted by a number of easily measured habitat variables, whereas nest success depended on complicated ecological interactions among nest predators, breeding behaviors, and cavity features. Thus, habitat-based conservation strategies should also consider ecological factors that may not be well predicted by habitat. PMID:23028525

Mercury levels of Nelson's and saltmarsh sparrows at wintering grounds in Virginia, USA.  

PubMed

Nelson's and saltmarsh sparrows (Ammodramus nelsoni and A. caudacutus) have recently been recognized as separate species, and because of their limited distributions and the susceptibility of their wetland habitats to climate change, these two new species are of conservation concern. Both species are known to bioaccumulate mercury at breeding sites in New England, USA where their ranges overlap, with the saltmarsh sparrow reported to have twice the concentration of blood total mercury. In this study we sampled both species on their shared wintering grounds, and documented that mercury exposure is lower than that reported for the breeding range, with saltmarsh sparrow blood mercury 2.6 times higher than in Nelson's sparrow. Feather mercury, which is incorporated on the breeding grounds, confirmed that saltmarsh sparrows had incorporated 2.3 times more mercury than Nelson's sparrows during the previous breeding season. A comparison of stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon suggests that the higher exposure of saltmarsh sparrows may be not due to feeding at a higher trophic level, as previously hypothesized, but rather could be related to a difference in the carbon source at the base of each species' food chain. This study, along with recently published data from both species on additional breeding and wintering grounds, provides a more complete picture of relative mercury exposure. Saltmarsh sparrows are exposed to mercury levels that warrant concern, with the highest exposure being during the breeding season. Areas set aside for the long-term conservation of this species should be carefully assessed for mercury bioaccumulation. PMID:21698442

Lewis acidity of organofluorophosphonium salts: hydrodefluorination by a saturated acceptor.  

PubMed

Prototypical Lewis acids, such as boranes, derive their reactivity from electronic unsaturation. Here, we report the Lewis acidity and catalytic application of electronically saturated phosphorus-centered electrophilic acceptors. Organofluorophosphonium salts of the formula [(C6F5)(3-x)Ph(x)PF][B(C6F5)4] (x = 0 or 1; Ph, phenyl) are shown to form adducts with neutral Lewis bases and to react rapidly with fluoroalkanes to produce difluorophosphoranes. In the presence of hydrosilane, the cation [(C6F5)3PF](+) is shown to catalyze the hydrodefluorination of fluoroalkanes, affording alkanes and fluorosilane. The mechanism demonstrates the impressive fluoride ion affinity of this highly electron-deficient phosphonium center. PMID:24052304

Effects of non-unity Lewis numbers in diffusion flames  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The purpose of this work is to carry out direct numerical simulations of diffusion controlled combustion with non-unity Lewis numbers for the reactants and products, thus accounting for the differential diffusion effects of the temperature and concentration fields. We use a formulation based on combining the conservation equations in a way to eliminate the reaction terms similar to the method used by Burke and Schumann (1928) for unity Lewis numbers. We present calculations for an axisymmetric fuel jet and for a planar, time evolving mixing layer, leaving out the effects of thermal expansion and variations of the transport coefficients due to the heat release. Our results show that the front of the flame shifts toward the fuel or oxygen sides owing to the effect of the differential diffusion and that the location of maximum temperature may not coincide with the flame. The dependence of the distribution of the reaction products on their Lewis number has been investigated.

The translation invariant massive Nelson model: III. Asymptotic completeness below the two-boson threshold  

E-print Network

We show asymptotic completeness of two-body scattering for a class of translation invariant models describing a single quantum particle (the electron) linearly coupled to a massive scalar field (bosons). Our proof is based on a recently established Mourre estimate for these models. In contrast to previous approaches, it requires no number cutoff, no restriction on the particle-field coupling strength, and no restriction on the magnitude of total momentum. Energy, however, is restricted by the two-boson threshold, admitting only scattering of a dressed electron and a single asymptotic boson. The class of models we consider include the UV-cutoff Nelson and polaron models.

N-methylacridinium salts: carbon Lewis acids in frustrated Lewis pairs for ?-bond activation and catalytic reductions.  

PubMed

N-methylacridinium salts are Lewis acids with high hydride ion affinity but low oxophilicity. The cation forms a Lewis adduct with 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)pyridine but a frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) with the weaker base 2,6-lutidine which activates H2, even in the presence of H2O. Anion effects dominate reactivity, with both solubility and rate of H2 cleavage showing marked anion dependency. With the optimal anion, a N-methylacridinium salt catalyzes the reductive transfer hydrogenation and hydrosilylation of aldimines through amine-boranes and silanes, respectively. Furthermore, the same salt is active for the catalytic dehydrosilylation of alcohols (primary, secondary, tertiary, and ArOH) by silanes with no observable over-reduction to the alkanes.

Washington During the Civil War: The Diary of Horatio Nelson Taft, 1861-1865  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Although diaries are personal memoirs not usually meant for public viewing, they can sometimes reveal history more vividly and accurately then actual history books. With that said, Washington during the Civil War: The Diary of Horatio Nelson Taft presents three manuscript volumes, totaling 1,240 digital images, that document daily life in Washington, DC through the eyes of Horatio Nelson Taft (1806-1888). An examiner for the US Patent Office, Mr. Taft logged events in Washington during the Civil War years, including his connection with Abraham Lincoln and his family. Of special interest is Taft's description of Lincoln's assassination, based on the accounts of his friends and his son, the latter being one of the attending physicians at Ford's Theatre on April 14, 1865, the night Lincoln was shot. Donated as a gift from Mrs. Willoughby Davis, a Taft descendant, the three-volume diary is now housed in the Manuscript Division at the Library of Congress. This online collection spans the years 1861 to 1865 and is browseable by date of entry.

Kimberlite Indicator Minerals in the Fort Nelson Area, Northeastern British Columbia  

E-print Network

Parts of northeastern British Columbia are underlain by Precambrian basement that belongs to the North American craton. These areas have a moderate exploration potential for diamonds in terms of the traditional diamondiferous mantle root model. The potential of any area to host kimberlite or lamproite-hosted diamond deposits may be assessed based on the thickness and age of basement rocks, geophysical anomalies and other data sets including the presence of kimberlite indicator minerals (KIMs) in Quaternary sediments. This study concentrates mainly on KIMs presence in Late Pleistocene glaciofluvial sands and gravels. Of the 20 samples collected and processed, 14 contain KIMs such as purple pyrope, yellowish eclogitic garnet, Cr-diopside, olivine, ilmenite or spinel. It is probable that some of these KIMs were derived from primary and secondary sources within the Fort Nelson area, however others may have been transported to the Fort Nelson area from the Northwest Territories and Alberta by Late Pleistocene glacial and/or glaciofluvial systems. Corundum and diaspore were also recovered from collected samples. At this stage, semiquantitative data do not allow for a definitive interpretation as to whether this corundum is kimberlite-related.

Identifying Hydrological Controls in the Lower Nelson River Basin utilizing Stable Water Isotopes  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In 2010 a Stable Water Isotope (SWI) Monitoring Network was established within the lower Nelson River Basin (LNRB) (approximately 90,000 km2) in northern Manitoba, Canada, through a joint collaboration between the University of Manitoba and Manitoba Hydro (MH). The monitoring network encompasses over 60 sites where surface waters are regularly sampled, four sites sampling isotopes in precipitation, two sites utilizing drive point piezometers for the isotopic sampling of baseflow waters, and one site collecting evaporatively enriched water samples from an evaporation pan. In addition, two synoptic surveys have been completed in June 2011 and July 2012 to obtain annual snapshots of the monitoring network at a point in time. Currently, over 700 samples have been collected and analyzed. The LNRB contains approximately 9% of the total Nelson River Basin (NRB) drainage area, which encompasses an area of over 1 million km2. A diversion from the Churchill River through the Rat/Burntwood system routes an additional portion of flow into the northwest portion of the LNRB. The LNRB is significant to MH's network as it represents 75% of their power generation potential through six generating stations, thus resulting in a large portion of the basin being regulated. The watershed is topographically flat, therefore the movement and runoff of water, as well as isotopic composition of streamflow, is suspected to be highly impacted by changes in landscape and hydrography. The LNRB is a coniferous and wetland dominated basin, with almost 35% of the land cover composed of coniferous forest and 40% comprised of wetlands and lakes. Interpretation of the LNRB isotope framework shows that the major water sources (rainfall, snowfall, groundwater and surface waters) and rivers are isotopically distinct from one another. The main stem of the Nelson River shows little spatial or temporal variability, with an average ?18O of -10.6 and a standard deviation of 0.5 throughout the sampling period. Conversely, the main stem of the Burntwood River system shows increased variability relative to the Nelson River and overall is more depleted (average ?18O of -12.9 and a standard deviation of 0.75). Many of the headwater tributaries to the Nelson and Burntwood River systems such as Birchtree Brook, and the Minago, Gunisao, Grass, Odei, Footprint and Sapochi Rivers show large temporal and spatial variability due to relatively smaller drainage areas and differences in typology and connectivity. For this reason, further investigation into the correlation of land cover with isotopic composition is assessed for the aforementioned tributaries to better establish the hydrological controls (i.e., sources and sinks) for each sub-basin at the mesoscale. Results signify a strong relationship between percent wetland coverage and the slope of the Local Evaporation Line (SLEL) for headwater sub-basins (R2=0.99), indicating the likelihood of enhanced evaporative enrichment for sub-basins with increased wetland coverage. The collection of SWI's within the LNRB will help to develop a comprehensive understanding of water sources and cycling in this basin with the end goal of improving hydrological forecasting tools to predict, with improved certainty, future water availability for hydroelectric power production.

Book Review of Venereal Disease and the Lewis and Clark Expedition by Thomas P. Lowry  

Microsoft Academic Search

Although Lewis and Clark literature has proliferated in the last decade, few works have added scholarly discourse to this field of study. The highly focused Venereal Disease and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, however, will likely stand out on the Lewis and Clark bookshelf as an important contribution.

Liquid droplet radiator program at the NASA Lewis Research Center  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The NASA Lewis Research Center and the Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory (AFRPL) are jointly engaged in a program for technical assessment of the Liquid Droplet Radiator (LDR) concept as an advanced high performance heat ejection component for future space missions. NASA Lewis has responsibility for the technology needed for the droplet generator, for working fluid qualification, and for investigating the physics of droplets in space; NASA Lewis is also conducting systems/mission analyses for potential LDR applications with candidate space power systems. For the droplet generator technology task, both micro-orifice fabrication techniques and droplet stream formation processes have been experimentally investigated. High quality micro-orifices (to 50 micron diameter) are routinely fabricated with automated equipment. Droplet formation studies have established operating boundaries for the generation of controlled and uniform droplet streams. A test rig is currently being installed for the experimental verification, under simulated space conditions, of droplet radiation heat transfer performance analyses and the determination of the effect radiative emissivity of multiple droplet streams. Initial testing has begun in the NASA Lewis Zero-Gravity Facility for investigating droplet stream behavior in microgravity conditions. This includes the effect of orifice wetting on jet dynamics and droplet formation. Results for both Brayton and Stirling power cycles have identified favorable mass and size comparisons of the LDR with conventional radiator concepts.

Effects of Lewis Number on Temperatures of Spherical Diffusion Flames  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Spherical diffusion flames supported on a porous sphere were studied numerically and experimentally. Experiments were performed in 2.2 s and 5.2 s microgravity facilities. Numerical results were obtained from a Chemkin-based program. The program simulates flow from a porous sphere into a quiescent environment, yields both steady-state and transient results, and accounts for optically thick gas-phase radiation. The low flow velocities and long residence times in these diffusion flames lead to enhanced radiative and diffusive effects. Despite similar adiabatic flame temperatures, the measured and predicted temperatures varied by as much as 700 K. The temperature reduction correlates with flame size but characteristic flow times and, importantly, Lewis number also influence temperature. The numerical results show that the ambient gas Lewis number would have a strong effect on flame temperature if the flames were steady and nonradiating. For example, a 10% decrease in Lewis number would increase the steady-state flame temperature by 200 K. However, for these transient, radiating flames the effect of Lewis number is small. Transient predictions of flame sizes are larger than those observed in microgravity experiments. Close agreement could not be obtained without either increasing the model s thermal and mass diffusion properties by 30% or reducing mass flow rate by 25%.

Alpha-synuclein biology in Lewy body diseases  

PubMed Central

?-Synuclein is an abundantly expressed neuronal protein that is at the center of focus in understanding a group of neurodegenerative disorders called ?-synucleinopathies, which are characterized by the presence of aggregated ?-synuclein intracellularly. Primary ?-synucleinopathies include Parkinsons disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies and multiple system atrophy, with ?-synuclein also found secondarily in a number of other diseases, including Alzheimers disease. Understanding how ?-synuclein aggregates form in these different disorders is important for the understanding of its pathogenesis in Lewy body diseases. PD is the most prevalent of the ?-synucleinopathies and much of the initial research on ?-synuclein Lewy body pathology was based on PD but is also relevant to Lewy bodies in other diseases (dementia with Lewy bodies and Alzheimers disease). Polymorphism and mutation studies of SNCA, the gene that encodes ?-synuclein, provide much evidence for a causal link between ?-synuclein and PD. Among the primary ?-synucleinopathies, multiple system atrophy is unique in that ?-synuclein deposition occurs in oligodendrocytes rather than neurons. It is unclear whether ?-synuclein originates from oligodendrocytes or whether it is transmitted somehow from neurons. ?-Synuclein exists as a natively unfolded monomer in the cytosol, but in the presence of lipid membranes it is thought to undergo a conformational change to a folded ?-helical secondary structure that is prone to forming dimers and oligomers. Posttranslational modification of ?-synuclein, such as phosphorylation, ubiquitination and nitration, has been widely implicated in ?-synuclein aggregation process and neurotoxicity. Recent studies using animal and cell models, as well as autopsy studies of patients with neuron transplants, provided compelling evidence for prion-like propagation of ?-synuclein. This observation has implications for therapeutic strategies, and much recent effort is focused on developing antibodies that target extracellular ?-synuclein.

Tuning the Lewis acidity of boranes in frustrated Lewis pair chemistry: implications for the hydrogenation of electron-poor alkenes.  

PubMed

An analysis of the metal-free reduction of electron deficient olefins by frustrated Lewis pairs indicates that the rate-determining step might be either the heterolytic cleavage of H2 to form an -onium borohydride salt, or the subsequent transfer of the hydride moiety to the substrate following a Michael-type addition reaction. While the use of strong Lewis acids such as B(C6F5)3 facilitates the first of these processes, hydride transfer to the olefin should be contrarily favoured by the use of weak Lewis acids which, for this very same reason, might be unable to promote the prior H2 split. After systematic testing of several boranes of different Lewis acidity (assessed by using the Childs' method) and steric demand, an optimal situation that employs tris(2,4,6-trifluorophenyl)borane was reached. Mixtures of this borane with 1,4-diazabicyclo[2.2.2]octane (DABCO) exhibited excellent catalytic activity for the hydrogenation of alkylidene malonates. In fact, this transformation could be achieved under milder conditions than those we reported previously. Moreover, the reaction scope could be expanded to other electron deficient olefins containing esters, sulfones or nitro functionalities as electron-withdrawing substituents. PMID:23813663

Determination of critical habitat for the endangered Nelson's bighorn sheep in southern California  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service's (USFWS) designation of critical habitat for the endangered Nelson's bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis nelsoni) in the Peninsular Ranges of southern California has been controversial because of an absence of a quantitative, repeatable scientific approach to the designation of critical habitat. We used 12,411 locations of Nelson's bighorn sheep collected from 1984-1998 to evaluate habitat use within 398 km2 of the USFWS-designated critical habitat in the northern Santa Rosa Mountains, Riverside County, California. We developed a multiple logistic regression model to evaluate and predict the probability of bighorn use versus non-use of native landscapes. Habitat predictor variables included elevation, slope, ruggedness, slope aspect, proximity to water, and distance from minimum expanses of escape habitat. We used Earth Resources Data Analysis System Geographic Information System (ERDAS-GIS) software to view, retrieve, and format predictor values for input to the Statistical Analysis Systems (SAS) software. To adequately account for habitat landscape diversity, we carried out an unsupervised classification at the outset of data inquiry using a maximum-likelihood clustering scheme implemented in ERDAS. We used the strata resulting from the unsupervised classification in a stratified random sampling scheme to minimize data loads required for model development. Based on 5 predictor variables, the habitat model correctly classified >96% of observed bighorn sheep locations. Proximity to perennial water was the best predictor variable. Ninety-seven percent of the observations were within 3 km of perennial water. Exercising the model over the northern Santa Rosa Mountain study area provided probabilities of bighorn use at a 30 x 30-m2 pixel level. Within the 398 km 2 of USFWS-designated critical habitat, only 34% had a graded probability of bighorn use to non-use ranging from ???1:1 to 6,044:1. The remaining 66% of the study area had odds of having bighorn use <1:1 or it was more likely not to be used by bighorn sheep. The USFWS designation of critical habitat included areas (45 km2) of importance (2.5 to ???40 observations per km2 per year) to Nelson's bighorn sheep and large landscapes (353 km2) that do not appear to be used (<1 observation per km2 per year).

Immunohistochemical localization of apoptosome-related proteins in Lewy bodies in Parkinson's disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.  

PubMed

Apoptotic stimuli induce the release of cytochrome c from the mitochondria to the cytosol, and this released cytochrome c promotes the formation of the apoptosome, which contains cytochrome c, Apaf-1 and caspase-9, resulting in the activation of caspase-9 and the promotion of apoptotic cell death. To investigate the role of the apoptosome in patients with Parkinson?s disease (PD), we performed immunohistochemical studies on apoptosome-related proteins in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections from 8 normal subjects, 10 patients with PD and 5 patients with dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Furthermore, we performed double-labeling immunohistochemistry for cleaved caspase-9 and CD68 in some sections from 8 normal subjects and 10 patients with PD. In the substantia nigra and locus ceruleus from both control and PD cases, the somata and processes of melanin-containing neurons were immunostained for cytochrome c, Apaf-1 and caspase-9. In the same areas from the PD cases, brainstem-type Lewy bodies were also immunoreactive for cytochrome c, Apaf-1 and caspase-9, and cleaved caspase-9 immunoreactivity was detected in brainstem-type Lewy bodies and CD68-immunopositive microglia. In addition to brainstem-type Lewy bodies, cortical Lewy bodies were also immunoreactive for these apoptosome-related proteins in the frontal and temporal cortices from the DLB cases. Our results suggest that apoptosome formation accompanied by caspase-9 activation may occur in the substantia nigra and locus ceruleus in brains affected by PD, and that a mitochondria-dependent apoptotic pathway may be partially associated with the pathogenesis of PD.

Application of an improved Nelson-Nguyen analysis to eccentric, arbitrary profile liquid annular seals  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An improved dynamic analysis for liquid annular seals with arbitrary profile based on a method, first proposed by Nelson and Nguyen, is presented. An improved first order solution that incorporates a continuous interpolation of perturbed quantities in the circumferential direction, is presented. The original method uses an approximation scheme for circumferential gradients, based on Fast Fourier Transforms (FFT). A simpler scheme based on cubic splines is found to be computationally more efficient with better convergence at higher eccentricities. A new approach of computing dynamic coefficients based on external specified load is introduced. This improved analysis is extended to account for arbitrarily varying seal profile in both axial and circumferential directions. An example case of an elliptical seal with varying degrees of axial curvature is analyzed. A case study based on actual operating clearances of an interstage seal of the Space Shuttle Main Engine High Pressure Oxygen Turbopump is presented.

Di(mesityl)cyclohexenylphosphine undergoes hydroboration with Piers' borane [HB(C(6)F(5))(2)] to yield the cyclohexylene-anellated frustrated Lewis pair 5. This P/B pair splits H(2) with the formation of the product 4 and adds to the C=O double bond of phenyl isocyanate to yield 6. In the crystal, compound 5 features a puckered four-membered heterocyclic core structure with a long P-B bond (av. 2.197(5) ). The activation energy of the P-B cleavage of the frustrated Lewis pair 5 was determined by dynamic (19)F NMR spectroscopy at ?G(?)(298 K)=12.10.3 kcal mol(-1). PMID:20981668

Phosphine complexes of lone pair bearing Lewis acceptors.  

PubMed

An overview of the synthesis, structures and reaction chemistry of coordination complexes featuring an acceptor with at least one lone pair and at least one phosphine donor is presented. One or more examples of complexes have been structurally-characterized for the majority of p-block elements but few are known for most elements. The unusual condition of a p-block element centre accommodating a lone pair of electrons and offering a low energy LUMO gives the element centre the potential to behave as both a Lewis acid and a Lewis Base. The structural diversity and reactivity of the phosphine complexes highlights new directions in main group chemistry and by comparison with transition metal coordination chemistry, the featured complexes demonstrate significant configurational and stereochemical flexibility. Ligand exchange, oxidation and reduction chemistry at the lone pair bearing acceptor centre reveals unusual reactivity and an interesting class of ligands and inorganic reagents, with new possibilities for catalysis or small molecule activation.

Lewis Mumford Center for Comparative Urban and Regional Research  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Throughout his long life, Lewis Mumford wore multiple hats, including those of a prolific author, accomplished chronicler of urbanism, and social critic. In 1988, a group of scholars from the University of Albany visited Mumford and his wife to discuss a plan for an academic center whose work would be both "comparative and historical in scope." The fruits of this initial idea became the Lewis Mumford Center for Comparative Urban and Regional Research at the University of Albany. Headed by Professor John R. Logan, the Center has a number of research projects, including a global neighborhoods initiative and the research network of professionals concerned with working on the study of urbanization in contemporary China. For those interested on the changing demographics in the United States, the center's research reports, drawing on 2000 U.S. Census, will be particularly useful, as they cover such topics as racial segregation in the Boston region and the Muslim world in metropolitan America.

The Organization of Narrative Discourse in Lewy Body Spectrum Disorder  

PubMed Central

Narrative discourse is an essential component of day-to-day communication, but little is known about narrative in Lewy Body spectrum disorder (LBSD), including Parkinson's disease (PD), Parkinson's disease with dementia (PDD), and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). We performed a detailed analysis of a semi-structured speech sample in 32 non-aphasic patients with LBSD, and we related their narrative impairments to gray matter (GM) atrophy using voxel-based morphometry. We found that patients with PDD and DLB have significant difficulty organizing their narrative speech. This was correlated with deficits on measures of executive functioning and speech fluency. Regression analyses associated this deficit with reduced cortical volume in inferior frontal and anterior cingulate regions. These findings are consistent with a model of narrative discourse that includes executive as well as language components and with an impairment of the organizational component of narrative discourse in patients with PDD and DLB.

Engines and innovation: Lewis Laboratory and American propulsion technology  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This book is an institutional history of the NASA Lewis Research Center, located in Cleveland, Ohio, from 1940, when Congress authorized funding for a third laboratory for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, through the 1980s. The history of the laboratory is discussed in relation to the development of American propulsion technology, with particular focus on the transition in the 1940s from the use of piston engines in airplanes to jet propulsion and that from air-breathing engines to rocket technology when the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was established in 1958. The personalities and research philosophies of the people who shaped the history of the laboratory are discussed, as is the relationship of Lewis Research Center to the Case Institute of Technology.

Familial Dementia With Lewy Bodies With an Atypical Clinical Presentation  

PubMed Central

The authors report a case of a 64-year-old male with Alzheimers disease (AD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) pathology at autopsy who did not manifest the core symptoms of DLB until very late in his clinical course. His initial presentation of early executive and language dysfunction suggested a cortical dementia similar to frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Core symptoms of DLB including dementia, hallucination, and parkinsonian symptoms were not apparent until late in the course of his illness. Autopsy revealed both brainstem and cortical Lewy bodies and AD pathology. Family history revealed 7 relatives with a history of dementia including 4 with possible or probable DLB. This case is unique because of the FTLD-like presentation, positive family history of dementia, and autopsy confirmation of DLB. PMID:12641375

Review of Recent Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) Research at Lewis Research Center  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) research at NASA Lewis Research Center that began in the late 1980's is reviewed. This work has been concentrated on low bandgap indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) PV calls and rare earth - yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) thin film selective emitters, as well as, TPV system studies. An emittance theory has been developed for the thin film emitters. Experimental spectral emittance results for erbium Er-YAG and holmium Ho-YAG show excellent emittance (greater than or equal to 0.7) within the emission bands. The 0.75 eV InGaAs PV cells fabricated at Lewis have excellent quantum efficiency. An efficiency of 130% has been measured for this cell coupled to an Er-YAG selective emitter and a short pass IR filter.

NASA Lewis' Telescience Support Center Supports Orbiting Microgravity Experiments  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Telescience Support Center (TSC) at the NASA Lewis Research Center was developed to enable Lewis-based science teams and principal investigators to monitor and control experimental and operational payloads onboard the International Space Station. The TSC is a remote operations hub that can interface with other remote facilities, such as universities and industrial laboratories. As a pathfinder for International Space Station telescience operations, the TSC has incrementally developed an operational capability by supporting space shuttle missions. The TSC has evolved into an environment where experimenters and scientists can control and monitor the health and status of their experiments in near real time. Remote operations (or telescience) allow local scientists and their experiment teams to minimize their travel and maintain a local complement of expertise for hardware and software troubleshooting and data analysis. The TSC was designed, developed, and is operated by Lewis' Engineering and Technical Services Directorate and its support contractors, Analex Corporation and White's Information System, Inc. It is managed by Lewis' Microgravity Science Division. The TSC provides operational support in conjunction with the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and NASA Johnson Space Center. It enables its customers to command, receive, and view telemetry; monitor the science video from their on-orbit experiments; and communicate over mission-support voice loops. Data can be received and routed to experimenter-supplied ground support equipment and/or to the TSC data system for display. Video teleconferencing capability and other video sources, such as NASA TV, are also available. The TSC has a full complement of standard services to aid experimenters in telemetry operations.

Lewis theory for energy straggling in thin layers  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A Lewis-moments theory for energy straggling is developed that underpins the observed numerical accuracy of moment-preserving approximations for computing charged particle energy-loss distributions in thin layers. Specifically, we prove that for a certain class of straggling models, if an approximate straggling model has identical collisional energy-loss moments as the exact or analog model through a fixed order N, then the corresponding energy-moments of the energy-loss distributions are identical to order N.

Influence of monoclonal anti-Lewis b, anti-H type 1, and anti-sialyl Lewis x antibodies on binding of Helicobacter pylori to MUC1 mucin.  

PubMed

To assess the influence of monoclonal anti-Lewis b, anti-H type 1, and anti-sialyl Lewis x addition on interactions of sugar structures of MUC1 mucin with Helicobacter pylori. The investigations were carried out on gastric juices of 11 patients and 12 H. pylori strains. The levels of Lewis b and sialyl Lewis x antigens on MUC1 were assessed by sandwich ELISA tests. Anti-Lewis b, anti-H type 1 or anti-sialyl Lewis x monoclonal antibodies were added to MUC1 to determine whether the adhesion activities of H. pylori isolates to examined mucin would be affected. Binding of bacteria to MUC1 was assessed by ELISA test. Clear inhibitory effect of examined antibodies was revealed in 6 of 12 examined H. pylori isolates independently on babA2 status. In the rest of strains this effect was negligible. We confirmed participation of Lewis b, H type 1 and also sialyl Lewis x of MUC1 mucin in interactions with H. pylori independently on babA genopositivity. Not full inhibition and a lack of this effect in some strains suggest an existence of other mechanisms of H. pylori adherence to mucin. PMID:24096735

Interpretation of natural law in the conflict over Humanae Vitae  

Microsoft Academic Search

Humanae Vitae, the papal encyclical which proscribed artificial methods of birth regulation, drew widespread criticism. Such a response was inevitable for the Pope and the dissenters view natural law, on which the proscription was based, from antagonistic perspectives. An understanding of these perspectives is useful in explaining the papal response to the dissent.

Roles of the Lewis acid and base in the chemical reduction of CO2 catalyzed by frustrated Lewis pairs.  

PubMed

We employ quantum chemical calculations to discover how frustrated Lewis pairs (FLP) catalyze the reduction of CO2 by ammonia borane (AB); specifically, we examine how the Lewis acid (LA) and Lewis base (LB) of an FLP activate CO2 for reduction. We find that the LA (trichloroaluminum, AlCl3) alone catalyzes hydride transfer (HT) to CO2 while the LB (trimesitylenephosphine, PMes3) actually hinders HT; inclusion of the LB increases the HT barrier by ?8 kcal/mol relative to the reaction catalyzed by LAs only. The LB hinders HT by donating its lone pair to the LUMO of CO2, increasing the electron density on the C atom and thus lowering its hydride affinity. Although the LB hinders HT, it nonetheless plays a crucial role by stabilizing the active FLPCO2 complex relative to the LA dimer, free CO2, and free LB. This greatly increases the concentration of the reactive complex in the form FLPCO2 and thus increases the rate of reaction. We expect that the principles we describe will aid in understanding other catalytic CO2 reductions. PMID:23941178

Robotic-assisted minimally invasive esophagectomy (RAMIE) is emerging as a potential alternative approach to standard minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE). However, early reports vary widely in operative approach, method, and reporting of outcomes, including operative complications. A formal, prospective academic program to evaluate RAMIE was initiated at the authors' institution, with the primary goal of maximizing patient safety during the introduction of new technology into the operating room. The standardized RAMIE Ivor Lewis approach developed through this program is described in detail. The available literature is reviewed, with early reports suggesting outcomes similar to those of MIE and standard open esophagectomy. PMID:24780426

Serotonin syndrome following levodopa treatment in diffuse Lewy body disease.  

PubMed

Serotonin syndrome results from an acute hyperserotonergic state. It is a rare and potentially fatal complication of drugs that affect the central nervous system serotonin levels. It is characterised by a triad of clinical features comprising altered sensorium, autonomic instability and neuromuscular hyperexcitability, in different combinations. We present an atypical case of serotonin syndrome related to levodopa use in a patient of probable Lewy body dementia. This case highlights the difficulty in diagnosis and management of cases with serotonin syndrome in the absence of history of a known serotonergic drug and the fact that levodopa can contribute to its occurrence.

Coulomb Scattering in the Massless Nelson Model I. Foundations of Two-Electron Scattering  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We construct two-electron scattering states and verify their tensor product structure in the infrared-regular massless Nelson model. The proof follows the lines of Haag-Ruelle scattering theory: Scattering state approximants are defined with the help of two time-dependent renormalized creation operators of the electrons acting on the vacuum. They depend on the ground state wave functions of the (single-electron) fiber Hamiltonians with infrared cut-off. The convergence of these approximants as t?? is shown with the help of Cook's method combined with a non-stationary phase argument. The removal of the infrared cut-off in the limit t?? requires sharp estimates on the derivatives of these ground state wave functions w.r.t. electron and photon momenta, with mild dependence on the infrared cut-off. These key estimates, which carry information about the localization of the electrons in space, are obtained in a companion paper with the help of iterative analytic perturbation theory. Our results hold in the weak coupling regime.

The translation Invariant Massive Nelson Model: II. The Continuous Spectrum Below the Two-boson Threshold  

E-print Network

In this paper we continue the study of the energy-momentum spectrum of a class of translation invariant, linearly coupled, and massive Hamiltonians from non-relativistic quantum field theory. The class contains the Hamiltonians of E. Nelson and H. Froehlich. One of us previously investigated the structure of the ground state mass shell and the bottom of the continuous energy-momentum spectrum. Here we study the continuous energy-momentum spectrum itself up to the two-boson threshold, the threshold for energetic support of two-boson scattering states. We prove that non-threshold embedded mass shells have finite multiplicity and can accumulate only at thresholds. We furthermore establish the non-existence of singular continuous energy-momentum spectrum. Our results hold true for all values of the particle-field coupling strength but only below the two-boson threshold. The proof revolves around the construction of a certain relative velocity vector field used to construct a conjugate operator in the sense of Mourre.

Modeling non-unity Lewis number effects in premixed flames  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The combustion of hydrogen in Low Swirl Burners (LSB) is considered as an alternative for power production for it is characterized by low emissions and high efficiency. However, lean hydrogen premixed flames are subject to thermo-diffusive instabilities induced by the large diffusivity of hydrogen. The numerical modeling of these flows remain challenging for the transition of small scale instabilities into large scale turbulent structures cannot be modeled by conventional theories. In this work, a model is presented for the simulation of premixed flames with non-unity Lewis number fuels. This model relies on the Levelset/Progress variable approach which was found perfectly suited for the modeling of premixed flames with close to unity Lewis number fuels such as methane. Combined with the solution of an additional transport equation for mixture fraction, this model is formulated and validated in simple 1D laminar premixed flames. The model is found to capture accurately global quantities such as burning velocity and flame thickness as well as mixture fraction fluctuations. Then, this model is applied in Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of a Low Swirl Burner of H2/Air (?=0.4). The simulation shows the formation of a strongly wrinkled flame with local extinction. The results obtained with this new formulation show significant improvement when compared with experimental measurements.

F119 Nozzle Flaps Tested at Lewis' CE-22 Facility  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The next generation of aircraft fighters requires higher engine performance and enhanced stealth characteristics for air superiority. A Lockheed-Martin/Boeing aircraft with a Pratt & Whitney F119 engine was selected by the Air Force for the next advanced tactical fighter (ATF). As part of this program, the NASA Lewis Research Center entered into a cooperative test program with Pratt & Whitney along with the Air Force to study the performance for various advanced nozzle concepts for the F119 engine. The area of interest was to measure the internal performance (both thrust and flow coefficients) of nozzle flaps redesigned for low observability with minimal performance loss. The experimental program was successfully completed May 1995 in Lewis' CE-22 facility. The models were tested over a wide range of geometric variations and nozzle pressure ratios. Results confirmed that the redesigned nozzle flaps had an insignificant effect on the thrust performance and that the resulting flow patterns should not be a problem in the cooling flow design. The results also agreed well with Pratt & Whitney's computational fluid dynamics analysis. The data obtained from this test were added to the current data base to help validate other performance prediction methodology.

Catalytic Preparation of Aziridines with an Iron Lewis Acid.  

PubMed

The iron Lewis acid, [(eta(5)-C(5)H(5))Fe(CO)(2)(THF)](+)[BF(4)](-), was found to be an effective catalyst for the preparation of aziridines. This new method provides a facile, one-step route to predominantly cis-aziridines, with yields up to 95%, from compounds with a diazo functionality and a variety of substituted N-benzylidene imines with N-aryl or N-alkyl groups. The reaction mechanism is believed to proceed through an electrophilic iminium ion intermediate. To support this idea, the iron Lewis acid-imine complex [(eta(5)-C(5)H(5))Fe(CO)(2)(PhCH=NPh)](+)[BF(4)](-) was prepared, characterized, and reacted with different diazo compounds to provide the resultant cis-aziridines. Alternatively, it may be possible that the aziridines were derived from an electrophilic carbenoid intermediate, as is often proposed. Thus, the iron carbene [(eta(5)-C(5)H(5))Fe(CO)(2)(CHPh)](+)[SO(3)CF(3)](-) was prepared and treated with N-benzylideneaniline; however, the resultant aziridine was not formed. PMID:11672303

Dual roles of sialyl Lewis X oligosaccharides in tumor metastasis and rejection by natural killer cells.  

PubMed Central

Aberrant expression of cell surface carbohydrates such as sialyl Lewis X is associated with tumor formation and metastasis. In order to determine the roles of sialyl Lewis X in tumor metastasis, mouse melanoma B16-F1 cells were stably transfected with alpha1, 3-fucosyltransferase III to express sialyl Lewis X structures. The transfected B16-F1 cells, B16-FTIII, were separated by cell sorting into three different groups based on the expression levels of sialyl Lewis X. When these transfected cells were injected into tail veins of C57BL/6 mice, B16-FTIII.M cells expressing moderate amounts of sialyl Lewis X in poly-N-acetyllactosamines produced large numbers of lung tumor nodules. Surprisingly, B16-FTIII.H cells expressing the highest amount of sialyl Lewis X in shorter N-glycans died in lung blood vessels, producing as few lung nodules as B16-FTIII.N cells which lack sialyl Lewis X. In contrast, B16-FIII.H cells formed more tumors in beige mice and NK cell-depleted C57BL/6 mice than did B16-FTIII.M cells. B16-FTIII.H cells bound to E-selectin better than did B16-FTIII.M cells, but both cells grew at the same rate. These results indicate that excessive expression of sialyl Lewis X in tumor cells leads to rejection by NK cells rather than tumor formation facilitated by attachment to endothelial cells.

Brain Organochlorines and Lewy Pathology: The Honolulu-Asia Aging Study  

PubMed Central

Background Although organochlorines have been reported more frequently in Parkinsons disease (PD) brains than controls, the association with brain Lewy pathology is unknown. Honolulu-Asia Aging Study (HAAS) participants, exposed to organochlorines from a variety of sources during mid-life, represent a population well suited to determine the relationship of brain organochlorines with Lewy pathology in decedents from the longitudinal HAAS. Methods Study design included the measurement of 21 organochlorine levels in frozen occipital lobe samples from HAAS decedents. Alpha-synuclein immunostaining performed on 225 brains was used to identify Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites. Results With the potential for spurious associations to appear between Lewy pathology and 17 organochlorine compounds found to be present in at least one brain, initial assessments identified heptachlor epoxide isomer b, methoxychlor, and benzene hexachloride b as being most important. Prevalence of Lewy pathology was 75% (6/8) among brains with any 2 of the 3 compounds, 48.8% (79/162) among those with 1, and 32.7% (18/55) for those with neither (P=0.007 test for trend). While findings persisted after removing cases with PD and dementia with Lewy bodies, and when adjustments were made for age at death, body mass index, pack-years of cigarette smoking, and coffee intake (p=0.013), results were insignificant when correcting for multiple testing. Conclusions While consistent with earlier accounts of an association between organochlorines and clinical PD, associations with Lewy pathology warrant further study. PMID:22976848

Response of Lewis Flax Seedlings to Inoculation With Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi and Cyanobacteria  

Microsoft Academic Search

Forbs comprise an important though understudied com- ponent of western rangelands. Little is known about the depen- dence of forb species on associated soil microorganisms such as arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. In 1996 and 1998, we conducted two experiments examining the response of Lewis flax (Linum lewisii Pursh) to inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi under a variety of soil conditions. Lewis

Streptococcal cell wall-induced arthritis and adjuvant arthritis in F344----Lewis and in Lewis----F344 bone marrow chimeras  

SciTech Connect

Streptococcal cell wall (SCW)-induced arthritis and adjuvant arthritis (AA) are rat models for chronic, erosive polyarthritis. Both models can be induced in susceptible Lewis rats, whereas F344 rats are resistant. In AA as well as in SCW arthritis, antigen-specific T lymphocytes have been demonstrated to be crucial for chronic disease. In this communication the authors describe their studies to probe the cellular mechanism responsible for the difference in susceptibility of Lewis and F344, using bone marrow chimeras. By transplanting bone marrow cells from F344 into lethally irradiated Lewis recipients, Lewis rats were rendered resistant to SCW arthritis induction. F344 rats reconstituted with Lewis bone marrow, i.e., Lewis----F344 chimeras, develop an arthritis upon SCW injection. For AA comparable results were obtained. These data suggest that both resistance and susceptibility to bacterium-induced chronic arthritis are mediated by hemopoietic/immune cells and that the recipiental environment does not influence the susceptibility to chronic joint inflammation.

Halogen bond with the multivalent halogen acting as the Lewis acid center  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The halogen bond in complexes of BrF3 and BrF5 is analyzed where the trivalent and pentavalent bromine centers interact as the Lewis acid with the nitrogen Lewis base centers of HCN and N2 molecules as well as with the F-, Cl- and Br- anions. The halogen bonds analyzed here possess characteristics typical for other interactions as for example for the hydrogen bond or the halogen bond with the monovalent halogen center. However there are differences; the whole sphere of the multivalent Br-center is characterized by the positive electrostatic potential thus it acts as the Lewis acid, while the halogen monovalent atoms are usually characterized by the dual character since they may act simultaneously as the Lewis acid and as the Lewis base. The Quantum Theory of Atoms in Molecules and the Natural Bond Orbital method are applied here.

Carbocations as Lewis acid catalysts in Diels-Alder and Michael addition reactions.  

PubMed

In general, Lewis acid catalysts are metal-based compounds that owe their reactivity to a low-lying empty orbital. However, one potential Lewis acid that has received negligible attention as a catalyst is the carbocation. We have demonstrated the potential of the carbocation as a highly powerful Lewis acid catalyst for organic reactions. The stable and easily available triphenylmethyl (trityl) cation was found to be a highly efficient catalyst for the Diels-Alder reaction for a range of substrates. Catalyst loadings as low as 500?ppm, excellent yields, and good endo/exo selectivities were achieved. Furthermore, by changing the electronic properties of the substituents on the tritylium ion, the Lewis acidity of the catalyst could be tuned to control the outcome of the reaction. The ability of this carbocation as a Lewis acid catalyst was also further extended to the Michael reaction. PMID:24375806

Functional group chemistry at intramolecular frustrated Lewis pairs: substituent exchange at the Lewis acid site with 9-BBN.  

PubMed

The vicinal frustrated P/B Lewis pair (FLP) Mes(2)PCH(2)CH(2)B(C(6)F(5))(2) reacts with 9-borabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane (9-BBN) by C(6)F(5)vs. H exchange at boron to give the new [B]-H functionalized FLP Mes(2)PCH(2)CH(2)B(H)(C(6)F(5)) (4) and 9-C(6)F(5)-BBN. The latter was characterized as an isonitrile adduct by X-ray diffraction. The new FLP 4 forms an adduct with pyridine and it undergoes clean hydroboration reactions with 1-pentyne or added styrene or dimesitylvinylphosphane. The products formed stable adducts with pyridine; two such examples were also characterized by X-ray crystal structure analysis. A similar alkyl vs. hydrogen exchange was observed upon treatment of an Al/N based Lewis pair, iBu(2)Al-(Me(3)Si)C=C(H)-N(CH(2)CH(2))(2)NMe (14), with 9-BBN. PMID:23014979

Numerical Modeling of River Ice Processes on the Lower Nelson River  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Water resource infrastructure in cold regions of the world can be significantly impacted by the existence of river ice. Major engineering concerns related to river ice include ice jam flooding, the design and operation of hydropower facilities and other hydraulic structures, water supplies, as well as ecological, environmental, and morphological effects. The use of numerical simulation models has been identified as one of the most efficient means by which river ice processes can be studied and the effects of river ice be evaluated. The continued advancement of these simulation models will help to develop new theories and evaluate potential mitigation alternatives for these ice issues. In this thesis, a literature review of existing river ice numerical models, of anchor ice formation and modeling studies, and of aufeis formation and modeling studies is conducted. A high level summary of the two-dimensional CRISSP numerical model is presented as well as the developed freeze-up model with a focus specifically on the anchor ice and aufeis growth processes. This model includes development in the detailed heat transfer calculations, an improved surface ice mass exchange model which includes the rapids entrainment process, and an improved dry bed treatment model along with the expanded anchor ice and aufeis growth model. The developed sub-models are tested in an ideal channel setting as somewhat of a model confirmation. A case study of significant anchor ice and aufeis growth on the Nelson River in northern Manitoba, Canada, will be the primary field test case for the anchor ice and aufeis model. A second case study on the same river will be used to evaluate the surface ice components of the model in a field setting. The results from these cases studies will be used to highlight the capabilities and deficiencies in the numerical model and to identify areas of further research and model development.

About Lorentz-Mller-Nelson transformation to rigid noninertial frame of reference  

E-print Network

With a special Lorentz-M{\\o}ller-Nelson (LMN) transformation found transformation of velocity from the laboratory system S to an accelerated, rotating frame of reference s. The physical sense of parameter entering into the LMN special transformation is established. For small distances, and their proper smooth motion without jerks suggested the inverse special LMN transformation. The main consequences of this transformation is considered, namely, a) the desync in moving frame of reference s of proper clocks of the pre-synchronized in the laboratory frame S and b) the Lorentz contraction of proper rulers of frame s in the frame S. The applicability of the inverse LMN transformation for real frames with maximum rigidity is established. Equations for the rotation matrix is obtained. It is shown that the intrinsic rotation of the axes s, considered with respect to S is not rigid. Found the direct and inverse transformation of affine "angular" velocity in the S to the comoving, but not rotating frame s. Also shown that for the non-inertial motion of rigidly rotating frame of reference her the kinematic deformation of coordinates system is absent in two planes. The application of this transformation to a rotating rigid body is considered. The matrice and angle of proper Wigner rotation is calculated. We find differential equations for the inverse problem of relativistic kinematics, and their decision in the case of uniformly accelerated motion. The close connection between the proper Thomas precession and the proper Wigner rotation and their mutual compensation for the case uniformly accelerated motion has shown. The difference of the uniformly accelerated motion from the hyperbolic one has been shown. Also, the basic formulas are expressed in terms of the parameter, which is solution of the equation for the inverse problem of relativistic kinematics.

Ransom, Religion, and Red Giants: C.S. Lewis and Fred Hoyle  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Famed fantasy writer C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was known to friends as a well-read astronomy aficionado. However, this medieval scholar and Christian apologist embraced a pre-Copernican universe (with its astrological overtones) in his Chronicles of Narnia series and defended the beauty and relevance of the geocentric model in his final academic work, "The Discarded Image". In the "Ransom Trilogy ("Out of the Silent Planet", "Perelandra", and "That Hideous Strength") philologist Ransom (loosely based on Lewis's close friend J.R.R. Tolkien) travels to Lewis's visions of Mars and Venus, where he interacts with intelligent extraterrestrials, battles with evil scientists, and aids in the continuation of extraterrestrial Christian values. In the final book, Ransom is joined by a handful of colleagues in open warfare against the satanic N.I.C.E. (National Institute for Coordinated Experiments). Geneticist and evolutionary biologist J.B.S. Haldane criticized Lewis for his scientifically inaccurate descriptions of the planets, and his disdain for the scientific establishment. Lewis responded to the criticism in essays of his own. Another of Lewis's favorite scientific targets was atheist Fred Hoyle, whom he openly criticized for anti-Christian statements in Hoyle's BBC radio series. Writer and Lewis friend Dorothy L. Sayers voiced her own criticism of Hoyle. In a letter, Lewis dismissed Hoyle as "not a great philosopher (and none of my scientific colleagues think much of him as a scientist. Given Lewis's lack of respect for Hoyle, and use of creative license in describing the planets, and the flat-earth, "geocentric Narnia, it is surprising that Lewis very carefully includes an astronomically correct description of red giants in two novels in the Narnia series ("The Magician's Nephew" and "The Last Battle"). This inclusion is even more curious given that Fred Hoyle is well-known as one of the pioneers in the field of stellar death and the properties of red giants.

The NASA Lewis Research Center SBIR program: An assessment  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An assessment was made of the NASA Lewis Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program for the years 1983 to 1989. The assessment was based on the study of 99 Phase 1 contracts and 39 Phase 2 contracts. The overall impact of SBIR was found to be very positive, contributing strongly to many NASA programs. In addition, many successful efforts were commercialized benefiting the small business, federal agencies, and the aerospace industry. The program was evaluated in terms of contract quality, innovativeness, comparison to the state-of-the-art, achievement of goals, difficulty, and impact. Program difficulties were also identified, which could suggest possible program improvements. Much of the information gained in this assessment provided a basis for a SBIR data base which will be updated every year. This data base is computerized and will provide an excellent source of information about past SBIR efforts and company capabilities.

Enhanced Attitude Control Experiment for SSTI Lewis Spacecraft  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The enhanced attitude control system experiment is a technology demonstration experiment on the NASA's small spacecraft technology initiative program's Lewis spacecraft to evaluate advanced attitude control strategies. The purpose of the enhanced attitude control system experiment is to evaluate the feasibility of designing and implementing robust multi-input/multi-output attitude control strategies for enhanced pointing performance of spacecraft to improve the quality of the measurements of the science instruments. Different control design strategies based on modern and robust control theories are being considered for the enhanced attitude control system experiment. This paper describes the experiment as well as the design and synthesis of a mixed H(sub 2)/H(sub infinity) controller for attitude control. The control synthesis uses a nonlinear programming technique to tune the controller parameters and impose robustness and performance constraints. Simulations are carried out to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed attitude control design strategy. Introduction

Near-limit flame structures at low Lewis number  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The characteristics of premixed gas flames in mixtures with low Lewis numbers near flammability limits were studied experimentally using a low-gravity environment to reduce buoyant convection. The behavior of such flames was found to be dominated by diffusive-thermal instabilities. For sufficiently reactive mixtures, cellular structures resulting from these instabilities were observed and found to spawn new cells in regular patterns. For less reactive mixtures, cells formed shortly after ignition but did not spawn new cells; instead these cells evolved into a flame structure composed of stationary, apparently stable spherical flamelets. Experimental observations are found to be in qualitative agreement with elementary analytical models based on the interaction of heat release due to chemical reaction, differential diffusion of thermal energy and mass, flame front curvature, and volumetric heat losses due to gas and/or soot radiation.

Lewis Carroll and psychoanalysis: why nothing adds up in wonderland.  

PubMed

Each generation of psychoanalyst has found different things to value and sometimes to censure in Lewis Carroll's remarkable fiction and flights of fancy. But what does Carroll's almost 'surrealist' perspective in the Alice stories tell us about the rituals and symbols that govern life beyond Wonderland and Looking-Glass World? Arguing that Carroll's strong interest in meaning and nonsense in these and later works helps make the world strange to readers, the better to show it off-kilter, this essay focuses on Jacques Lacan's Carroll - the writer-logician who stressed, as Lacan did, the difficulty and price of adapting to the symbolic order. By reconsidering Lacan's 1966 homage to the eccentric Victorian, I argue that Carroll's insight into meaning and interpretation remains of key interest to psychoanalysts intent on hearing all that he had to say about psychic life.

Rayleigh Scattering Measurements in NASA Lewis Wind Tunnels  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Two applications of Rayleigh scattering for measuring flow parameters in wind tunnels are described. The first is the measurement of one velocity component and static temperature in the vicinity of a 12 % scale advanced short takeoff and vertical landing (ASTOVL) aircraft model in the Lewis 9 ft by 15 ft low speed wing tunnel. The model was equipped with high temperature and high pressure air supplies to simulate lift nozzles and suction systems to simulate engine inlets. The second application is a feasibility study to measure flow properties in a 4 inch by 10 inch supersonic wind tunnel This technique uses an injection seeded, frequency doubled Nd:YAG laser tuned to an absorption band of iodine.

Biomarkers in biological fluids for dementia with Lewy bodies  

PubMed Central

Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) has become the second most common neurodegenerative dementia due to demographic ageing. Differential diagnosis is still troublesome especially in early stages of the disease, since there is a great clinical and neuropathological overlap primarily with Alzheimers disease and Parkinsons disease. Therefore, more specific biomarkers, not only for scientific reasons but also for clinical therapeutic decision-making, are urgently needed. In this review, we summarize the knowledge on fluid biomarkers for DLB, derived predominantly from cerebrospinal fluid. We discuss the value of well-defined markers (?-amyloid, (phosphorylated) tau, ?-synuclein) as well as some promising upcoming substances, which still have to be further evaluated. PMID:25478030
