  7. Our words, our story: a textual analysis of articles published in the Bulletin of the Medical Library Association/Journal of the Medical Library Association from 1961 to 2010*

    PubMed Central

    Funk, Mark E.

    2013-01-01

    Purpose: This lecture explores changes in the medical library profession over the last fifty years, as revealed by individual word usage in a body of literature. Methods: I downloaded articles published in the Bulletin of the Medical Library Association and Journal of the Medical Library Association between 1961 and 2000 to create an electronic corpus and tracked annual frequency of individual word usage. I used frequency sparklines of words, matching one of four archetypal shapes (level, rise, fall, and rise-and-fall) to identify significant words. Results: Most significant words fell into the categories of environment, management, technology, and research. Based on word usage changes, the following trends are revealed: Compared to 1961, today's medical librarians are more concerned with digital information, not physical packages. We prefer information to be evidence-based. We focus more on health than medicine. We are reaching out to new constituents, sometimes leaving our building to do so. Teaching has become important for us. We run our libraries more like businesses, using constantly changing technology. We are publishing more research articles. Conclusions: Although these words were chosen by individual authors to tell their particular stories, in the aggregate, our words reveal our story of change in our profession. PMID:23405042

  10. Improving Classification of Protein Interaction Articles Using Context Similarity-Based Feature Selection

    PubMed Central

    Chen, Yifei; Sun, Yuxing; Han, Bing-Qing

    2015-01-01

    Protein interaction article classification is a text classification task in the biological domain to determine which articles describe protein-protein interactions. Since the feature space in text classification is high-dimensional, feature selection is widely used for reducing the dimensionality of features to speed up computation without sacrificing classification performance. Many existing feature selection methods are based on the statistical measure of document frequency and term frequency. One potential drawback of these methods is that they treat features separately. Hence, first we design a similarity measure between the context information to take word cooccurrences and phrase chunks around the features into account. Then we introduce the similarity of context information to the importance measure of the features to substitute the document and term frequency. Hence we propose new context similarity-based feature selection methods. Their performance is evaluated on two protein interaction article collections and compared against the frequency-based methods. The experimental results reveal that the context similarity-based methods perform better in terms of the F1 measure and the dimension reduction rate. Benefiting from the context information surrounding the features, the proposed methods can select distinctive features effectively for protein interaction article classification. PMID:26339638

  14. ECO update: Selecting and using reference information in superfund ecological risk assessments. Volume 2, Number 4, September 1994. Intermittent bulletin

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1994-09-01

    The Rocky Mountain Arsenal (RMA), located north of Denver, CO, is a large (27 sq mi.) Superfund site composed of many habitats. To meet specific sampling needs, investigators selected several smaller reference areas representing specific habitats at RMA. The Wellington Wildlife Refuge, for example, more than 50 miles north of RMA, was selected for collecting mallard ducks, mallard eggs, cottontail rabbits, mule deer, and prairie dogs for chemical analyses. And investigators selected land five miles away as a reference site for soils because it was composed of the same soil type as that found at RMA. Investigators should try to match soil characteristics--such as particle size distribution, organic matter content, hydrologic regime, and pH--as closely as possible. For example, organic matter content, pH, and texture determine a soil's cation exchange capacity, or its ability to adsorb positively charged ions such as H(+), Mg(+2), or Cd(+2). These cations may include pollutants as well as nutrients.

  8. A scheme to set preferred magnitudes in the ISC Bulletin

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Di Giacomo, Domenico; Storchak, Dmitry A.

    2016-04-01

    One of the main purposes of the International Seismological Centre (ISC) is to collect, integrate and reprocess seismic bulletins provided by agencies around the world in order to produce the ISC Bulletin. This is regarded as the most comprehensive bulletin of the Earth's seismicity, and its production is based on a unique cooperation in the seismological community that allows the ISC to complement the work of seismological agencies operating at global and/or local-regional scale. In addition, by using the seismic wave measurements provided by reporting agencies, the ISC computes, where possible, its own event locations and magnitudes such as short-period body wave m b and surface wave M S . Therefore, the ISC Bulletin contains the results of the reporting agencies as well as the ISC own solutions. Among the most used seismic event parameters listed in seismological bulletins, the event magnitude is of particular importance for characterizing a seismic event. The selection of a magnitude value (or multiple ones) for various research purposes or practical applications is not always a straightforward task for users of the ISC Bulletin and related products since a multitude of magnitude types is currently computed by seismological agencies (sometimes using different standards for the same magnitude type). Here, we describe a scheme that we intend to implement in routine ISC operations to mark the preferred magnitudes in order to help ISC users in the selection of events with magnitudes of their interest.

  1. Exposure assessment and risk characterization for perfluorooctanoate in selected consumer articles.

    Washburn, Stephen T; Bingman, Timothy S; Braithwaite, Scott K; Buck, Robert C; Buxton, L William; Clewell, Harvey J; Haroun, Lynne A; Kester, Janet E; Rickard, Robert W; Shipp, Annette M

    2005-06-01

    An exposure assessment and risk characterization was conducted to better understand the potential human health significance of trace levels of perfluorooctanoate (PFO) detected in certain consumer articles. PFO is the anion of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Concentrations of PFO in the consumer articles were determined from extraction tests and product formulation information. Potential exposures during consumer use of the articles were quantified based on an assessment of behavior patterns and regulatory guidance. Health benchmarks were developed and then compared to the exposure estimates to yield margins of exposure (MOEs). A simple one-compartment model was also developed to estimate contributions of potential consumer exposures to PFO concentrations in serum. While there are considerable uncertainties in this assessment, it indicates that exposures to PFO during consumer use of the articles evaluated in this study are not expected to cause adverse human health effects in infants, children, adolescents, adult residents, or professionals nor result in quantifiable levels of PFO in human serum.

  20. The ear, the eye, earthquakes and feature selection: listening to automatically generated seismic bulletins for clues as to the differences between true and false events.

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Kuzma, H. A.; Arehart, E.; Louie, J. N.; Witzleben, J. L.

    2012-04-01

    Listening to the waveforms generated by earthquakes is not new. The recordings of seismometers have been sped up and played to generations of introductory seismology students, published on educational websites and even included in the occasional symphony. The modern twist on earthquakes as music is an interest in using state-of-the-art computer algorithms for seismic data processing and evaluation. Algorithms such as such as Hidden Markov Models, Bayesian Network models and Support Vector Machines have been highly developed for applications in speech recognition, and might also be adapted for automatic seismic data analysis. Over the last three years, the International Data Centre (IDC) of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) has supported an effort to apply computer learning and data mining algorithms to IDC data processing, particularly to the problem of weeding through automatically generated event bulletins to find events which are non-physical and would otherwise have to be eliminated by the hand of highly trained human analysts. Analysts are able to evaluate events, distinguish between phases, pick new phases and build new events by looking at waveforms displayed on a computer screen. Human ears, however, are much better suited to waveform processing than are the eyes. Our hypothesis is that combining an auditory representation of seismic events with visual waveforms would reduce the time it takes to train an analyst and the time they need to evaluate an event. Since it takes almost two years for a person of extraordinary diligence to become a professional analyst and IDC contracts are limited to seven years by Treaty, faster training would significantly improve IDC operations. Furthermore, once a person learns to distinguish between true and false events by ear, various forms of audio compression can be applied to the data. The compression scheme which yields the smallest data set in which relevant signals can still be heard is likely an

    The publishing world is changing rapidly. Innovations include the move to open access, the rise of social media and the transition to digitalisation. In the light of these developments and with ever-increasing pressures on early career psychiatrists and trainees to publish papers in journals with a recognised pedigree, the BJPsych Bulletin is piloting an author mentoring scheme. Mentors will help clinicians and aspiring academics develop articles from a pedestrian manuscript to one that will hopefully provoke important debate and aid changes in current practices. The scheme will run on a trial basis for approximately 12 months and will then be reviewed. Mentoring has been found to have an important effect of research output including publication and grant success; the hope is that this new initiative at the BJPsych Bulletin will result in such dividends to all involved.

  3. Computational fluid dynamics study on the decomposition of ammonia in a selective porous membrane - article no. 42

    SciTech Connect

    Athanasios Sideridis; Dimitrios Koutsonikolas; Dimitrios Missirlis

    2008-07-01

    The development of alternative technologies for the removal of gas pollutants is an important aspect for the environmental friendliness of energy production. During coal gasification, N{sub 2} contained in coal is converted to NH{sub 3} and, as much as 50% of the ammonia in the fuel gas can be converted to nitrogen oxides (NOx). At these conditions, decomposition seems to be the only applicable solution for the removal of NH{sub 3}. The application of a high temperature catalytic membrane reactor process appears to offer an efficient and cost effective method of removing the NH{sub 3} from coal gasification gas streams. The present work examines the operation of such a selective membrane, used for the decomposition of NH{sub 3}, under a 2-D axissymetric CFD approach where the flow field, the chemical reactions and the selective porous membrane behavior are being modeled and computed. The main target of this effort was to obtain a more detailed view of the flow field and to investigate the decomposition of ammonia in comparison with a simpler 1-D modeling approach and, thus, to evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each method.

This BBS has four features that are common to most BBSs: (1) news: text about new or changed features; (2) bulletins: information on topics such as file names (3) messages: electronic mail (E-mail) a user posts for another user, all users, or the BBS operators; messages may be public or private (4) files: the heart of any BBS, they contain information sought by a user; a menu allows users to list the files, choosing either all files or those of a type, such as new files since the user`s last session.

  2. BJPsych Bulletin author mentoring scheme – helping trainees become published authors

    2016-01-01

    The publishing world is changing rapidly. Innovations include the move to open access, the rise of social media and the transition to digitalisation. In the light of these developments and with ever-increasing pressures on early career psychiatrists and trainees to publish papers in journals with a recognised pedigree, the BJPsych Bulletin is piloting an author mentoring scheme. Mentors will help clinicians and aspiring academics develop articles from a pedestrian manuscript to one that will hopefully provoke important debate and aid changes in current practices. The scheme will run on a trial basis for approximately 12 months and will then be reviewed. Mentoring has been found to have an important effect of research output including publication and grant success; the hope is that this new initiative at the BJPsych Bulletin will result in such dividends to all involved.

  6. Ten years of seismicity in the euro-mediterranean region: panorama of the EMSC bulletin 1998-2007

    2009-04-01

    The Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center (EMSC) is in charge of collecting seismological parametric data recorded by the local networks of the Euro-Mediterranean region in order to improve data availability for the seismologists and to rapidly produce a comprehensive seismicity bulletin for the region. The aims are to reproduce the seismicity as imaged by the local agencies when events occur within their network and to improve event location in borders regions and off-shore. In this presentation, we show ten years of seismicity that occurred in the Euro-Mediterranean region. Event locations have been obtained in the Euro-Med Bulletin for the period January 1998 to December 2007 by merging parametric data collected from 77 seismological agencies. Thanks to the many contributions, the Euro-Med Bulletin displays a high coverage of the region with the collection of data recorded by 2,625 stations and only two known missing networks. In total, more than 100,000 events are included for the period 1998-2007. We present here the performances of the Euro-Med Bulletin and their evolution over the years. In the spring 2009, the EMSC will produce a specific map of the Euro-Med seismicity. This map, dedicated to a wide audience will require a careful review and didactic selection of data. A special effort is needed to further discard non tectonic events from the current Euro-Med bulletin. This can be achieved by setting up additional collection of event type information (from rockburst to mine activity) with the help of the local networks. Additionally, the currently available bulletin may be recomputed using the global velocity model AK135.

  16. Frequency of tsunami alert bulletins in California

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Dengler, L. A.

    2009-12-01

    To illustrate how likely a California coastal emergency manager is likely to encounter a tsunami alert bulletin, the last century of earthquake history is examined to see how many warnings, watches, or advisories would have been issued if today’s alert protocol were being used. Using the current protocol, eleven tsunami warnings would have been issued. Four of these - 1946, 1952, 1960, and 1964 - were caused by great earthquakes far away and would have resulted in all or nearly all of the California coast being placed in a warning. The sources were located 4.5 to16 hours travel time away from California. All of these events actually caused damage in California and the 1964 tsunami is ranked as a major disaster. The other seven warnings would have been issued for earthquakes in the magnitude 7 to 8 range located close to the US west coast. The 1906 “San Francisco” earthquake would have resulted in a warning for all of Northern California. The 1927 “Lompoc” earthquake would have caused a warning for Southern and Central California and the remaining warnings would have been limited to California’s North Coast. In contrast to far-field events, the travel time between the earthquake and the arrival of the first waves in these near field events is typically a half hour or less. These events did all produce small tsunamis, but none caused damage. Unlike the far-field events where the water level detection system can detect whether a significant wave has been produced before California is put into the warning classification, the near-field events don’t provide the luxury of verification before a warning is issued. Eight tsunami advisory bulletins would likely have been issued in the past century. Of these, six were from large earthquakes elsewhere in the Pacific and two were from North Coast earthquakes located further offshore than the warning events above. Two of these events, 1957 and 2006, caused significant damage in Crescent City. Thirteen earthquake

  5. Toward A Unified Seismic Bulletin For The European-mediterranean Area : Epsi Project

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Piedfroid, O.; Epsi Team

    The goal is to develop means and tools that will allow producing of European- Mediterranean seismic bulletin that will serve as a reference for the scientific com- munity. In order to become a useful support for seismic hazard assessment, such a bulletin will be required to present standard and reliable information. EMSC gathers via e-mail manually picked seismic phase arrival times with or without associated locations from almost all the institutes of the European- Mediterranean region in a database ; then bulletins are automatically merged by a unique software. Events are then submitted to an automatic analysis of the location parameters, and, for dubious events, to a manual reprocessing. First studies have shown that, first : the use of local velocity models and the increase of the azimutal coverage for most of the relocated events, then the interactive analysis of each event allow a huge improvement in terms of quality and quantity of the final seismic bulletin. The next step is to define an accurate magnitude estimation for the whole region of interest. Experience shows that the differences in the magnitudes reported by several institutes for a given event may vary up to 1.5 units. Based on enhanced local mag- nitude computation or on the derivation of the seismic moment, three methods are currently being applied on a reference dataset. Scientifical and technical criteria have 1 been defined in order to select the most reliable method. It is then proposed to develop new velocity models for border regions from the analysis of the residuals of calibrated events. Thus a model for France-Italy border have been defined and models for Italy-Slovenia, Italy-Switzerland and France-Spain borders are currently being developed. Another important objective of the project is the installation of autoDRM systems in several institutes in order to improve data exchange.

  6. Air stripping of aqueous solutions. Engineering bulletin

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1991-10-01

    Air stripping is a means to transfer contaminants from aqueous solutions to air. Contaminants are not destroyed by air stripping but are physically separated from the aqueous solutions. Contaminant vapors are transferred into the air stream and, if necessary, can be treated by incineration, adsorption, or oxidation. Most frequently, contaminants are collected in carbon adsorption systems and then treated or destroyed in this concentrated form. The concentrated contaminants may be recovered, incinerated for waste heat recovery, or destroyed by other treatment technologies. Generally, air stripping is used as one in a series of unit operations and can reduce the overall cost for managing a particular site. Air stripping is applicable to volatile and semivolatile organic compounds. It is not applicable for treating metals and inorganic compounds. The bulletin provides information on the technology applicability, the technology limitations, a description of the technology, the types of residuals produced, site requirements, the latest performance data, the status of the technology, and sources of further information.

  7. [Updated medical death documents: Medical Death Certificate and the Birth Statistics Bulletin].

    PubMed

    Cirera, Lluís; Segura, Andreu

    2010-08-01

    Public health physicians have constantly urged that the Medical Death Certificate (CMD in Spain) and the notification of perinatal deaths be adapted to WHO standards. The new CMD came into effect in January 2009, whilst significant changes were made to the Birth Statistics Bulletin (BEP acronym in Spanish) in 2007. In this article the certifying doctor is informed on their novel and key aspects. The health significance of this medico-legal act is emphasised. At the same time associated issues are mentioned that still need to be resolved in Spain. The CMD unifies the medical certificate and the death statistics bulletin on one form and complies with WHO recommendations. It asks whether the death has been the result of an already registered traffic or work accident, and if an autopsy (clinical) has been performed. For place of death, it means the place where the cadaver has been recognised and the death certified. The approximate time of the causes of death must also be indicated. The BEP registers the births and deaths in labour. It includes the education level and occupation levels of the mother and father, and still has the number of weeks gestation and the birth weight in grams. Notification of legal deaths and perinatal deaths still need to be improved; the confidential transfer of causes of death to doctors and researchers; and death statistics according to cause with less delay between the events and their availability and publication.

  9. ISC-GEM: Global Instrumental Earthquake Catalogue (1900-2009), I. Data collection from early instrumental seismological bulletins

    Di Giacomo, Domenico; Harris, James; Villaseñor, Antonio; Storchak, Dmitry A.; Engdahl, E. Robert; Lee, William H. K.

    2015-02-01

    In order to produce a new global reference earthquake catalogue based on instrumental data covering the last 100+ years of global earthquakes, we collected, digitized and processed an unprecedented amount of printed early instrumental seismological bulletins with fundamental parametric data for relocating and reassessing the magnitude of earthquakes that occurred in the period between 1904 and 1970. This effort was necessary in order to produce an earthquake catalogue with locations and magnitudes as homogeneous as possible. The parametric data obtained and processed during this work fills a large gap in electronic bulletin data availability. This new dataset complements the data publicly available in the International Seismological Centre (ISC) Bulletin starting in 1964. With respect to the amplitude-period data necessary to re-compute magnitude, we searched through the global collection of printed bulletins stored at the ISC and entered relevant station parametric data into the database. As a result, over 110,000 surface and body-wave amplitude-period pairs for re-computing standard magnitudes MS and mb were added to the ISC database. To facilitate earthquake relocation, different sources have been used to retrieve body-wave arrival times. These were entered into the database using optical character recognition methods (International Seismological Summary, 1918-1959) or manually (e.g., British Association for the Advancement of Science, 1913-1917). In total, ∼1,000,000 phase arrival times were added to the ISC database for large earthquakes that occurred in the time interval 1904-1970. The selection of earthquakes for which data was added depends on time period and magnitude: for the early years of last century (until 1917) only very large earthquakes were selected for processing (M ⩾ 7.5), whereas in the periods 1918-1959 and 1960-2009 the magnitude thresholds are 6.25 and 5.5, respectively. Such a selection was mainly dictated by limitations in time and

  11. Automatic Event Bulletin Built by Waveform Cross Correlation Using the Global Grid of Master Events with Adjustable Templates

    2015-12-01

    We built an automatic seismic event bulletin for the whole globe using waveform cross correlation at array stations of the International Monitoring System (IMS). To detect signals and associate them into robust event hypotheses in an automatic pipeline we created a global grid (GG) of master events with a diversity of waveform templates. For the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), the GG provides an almost uniform distribution of monitoring capabilities and adjustable templates. For seismic areas, we select high quality signals at IMS stations from earthquakes. For test sites, signals from UNEs are best templates. Global detection and association with cross correlation technique for research and monitoring purposes demands templates from master events outside the regions of natural seismicity and test sites. We populate aseismic areas with masters having synthetic templates calculated for predefined sets of IMS array stations. We applied various technologies to synthesize most representative signals for cross correlation and tested them using the Reviewed Event Bulletin (REB) issued by the International Data Centre (IDC). At first, we tested these global sets of master events and synthetic templates using IMS seismic data for February 13, 2013 and demonstrated excellent detection and location capability. Then, using the REB and cross correlation bulletins (XSELs) experienced analysts from the IDC compared the relative performance of various templates and built reliable sets of events and detections for machine learning. In this study, we carefully compile global training sets for machine learning in order to establish statistical decision lines between reliable and unreliable event hypotheses, then apply classification procedures to the intermediate automatic cross correlation bulletin based on the GG, and compile the final XSEL, which is more accurate and has lower detection threshold than the REB.

  14. [Reading research articles].

    PubMed

    van der Graaf, Yolanda; Zaat, Joost

    2015-01-01

    Keeping up with the latest developments is not easy, but neither is reading articles on research. There are too many medical journals that contain information that is irrelevant to clinical practice. From this mass of articles you have to decide which are important for your own clinical practice and which are not. Most articles naturally fall into the latter category as spectacular findings with important consequences for medical practice do not occur every week. The most important thing in a research article is the research question. If you begin with this, then you can put aside much scientific literature. The methodology section is essential; reading this can save you a lot of time. In this article we take you step-by-step through the process of reading research articles. The articles in our Methodology series can be used as background information. These articles have been combined in a tablet app, which is available via www.ntvg.nl/methodologie.

    A method of drying a green particulate article includes the steps of: (a) Providing a green article which includes a particulate material and a pore phase material, the pore phase material including a solvent; and (b) contacting the green article with a liquid desiccant for a period of time sufficient to remove at least a portion of the solvent from the green article, the pore phase material acting as a semipermeable barrier to allow the solvent to be sorbed into the liquid desiccant, the pore phase material substantially preventing the liquid desiccant from entering the pores. 3 figs.

    The position of caretaker of a school is a many-sided and an important one, and the matter of his selection, supervision, and training have hardly been given the attention they deserve. There have been, in recent years, some valuable local studies in this field, but no survey of national scope has been attempted since 1922. The importance of the…

  12. Defense programs: A Sandia weapon review bulletin

    SciTech Connect

    Floyd, H.L.; Goetsch, B.; Doran, L.

    1993-11-01

    Sandia`s mission to explore technology that enhances US nuclear weapons capabilities has been the primary impetus for the development of a class of inertial measurement units not available commercially. The newest member of the family is the Ring Laser Gyro Assembly. The product of a five-year joint effort by Sandia and Honeywell`s Space and Strategic Systems Operation, the RLGA is a small, one-nautical-mile-per-hour-class inertial measurement unit that consumes only 16 watts - attributes that are important to a guidance and control capability for new or existing weapons. These same attributes led the Central Inertial Guidance Test Facility at Holloman Air Force Base to select the RLGA for their newest test instrumentation pod. The RLGA sensor assembly is composed of three Honeywell ring laser gyroscopes and three Sundstrand Data Control accelerometers that are selected from three types according to the user`s acceleration range and accuracy needs.

  13. Tips and tricks in writing review article.

    Syam, Ari Fahrial

    2007-01-01

    Review article or literature review actually is the simplest form of writing compared to a case report or study report. The writing process begins at pointing out topics to be written and informed to readers. The next step after the topic has been selected is to find literatures related to the article review writing. Principally, article writing plays an essential part in a doctor's life, whether as a specialist or consultant. And the most important is the desire to publish the article review.

  14. Contribution of Infrasound to IDC Reviewed Event Bulletin

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Bittner, Paulina; Polich, Paul; Gore, Jane; Ali, Sherif Mohamed; Medinskaya, Tatiana; Mialle, Pierrick

    2016-04-01

    Until 2003 two waveform technologies, i.e. seismic and hydroacoustic were used to detect and locate events included in the International Data Centre (IDC) Reviewed Event Bulletin (REB). The first atmospheric event was published in the REB in 2003 but infrasound detections could not be used by the Global Association (GA) Software due to the unmanageable high number of spurious associations. Offline improvements of the automatic processing took place to reduce the number of false detections to a reasonable level. In February 2010 the infrasound technology was reintroduced to the IDC operations and has contributed to both automatic and reviewed IDC bulletins. The primary contribution of infrasound technology is to detect atmospheric events. These events may also be observed at seismic stations, which will significantly improve event location. Examples of REB events, which were detected by the International Monitoring System (IMS) infrasound network were fireballs (e.g. Bangkok fireball, 2015), volcanic eruptions (e.g. Calbuco, Chile 2015) and large surface explosions (e.g. Tjanjin, China 2015). Query blasts and large earthquakes belong to events primarily recorded at seismic stations of the IMS network but often detected at the infrasound stations. Presence of infrasound detection associated to an event from a mining area indicates a surface explosion. Satellite imaging and a database of active mines can be used to confirm the origin of such events. This presentation will summarize the contribution of 6 years of infrasound data to IDC bulletins and provide examples of events recorded at the IMS infrasound network. Results of this study may help to improve location of small events with observations on infrasound stations.

  14. Commercial pressures and professional ethics: troubling revisions to the recent ACOG Practice Bulletins on surgery for pelvic organ prolapse.

    PubMed

    Wall, L Lewis; Brown, Douglas

    2009-07-01

    Commercial interests are reshaping the practice of gynecological surgery by promoting the use of trochar-and-mesh surgical "kits" for the treatment of stress incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. In this article, we discuss the ethical implications of changes in surgical practice that are driven by commercial interests. We point out the dangers inherent in the adoption of new procedures without adequate and documented evidence to support their safety and efficacy. We discuss the most recent American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Practice Bulletins on pelvic organ prolapse (numbers 79 and 85) which were altered without explanation to downplay the experimental nature of these commercial products. We suggest that in so doing, ACOG is not meeting its fiduciary responsibilities to patients and is undermining important professional values.

    Documentation is provided in this report for the closeout of IE Bulletin 83-07 regarding apparently fraudulent products sold by Ray Miller, Inc., to nuclear power and fuel facilities. The bulletin and two supplements were issued to all holders of nuclear power reactor or fuel facility operating licenses or construction permits. Four actions were required of all affected facilities to provide assurance that fraudulent items are not used in safety-related applications, unless qualified by tests. Review of utility responses and NRC/Region inspection reports shows that the bulletin is closed for all of the 118 power facilities and for the two fuel facilities to which it was issued for action. Facilities where were shut down or had construction halted indefinitely or permanently at the time of issuance of this report are not included. It is concluded that all bulletin concerns have been resolved.

    Berbatis, C G; Maher, M J; Plumridge, R J; Stoelwinder, J U; Zubrick, S R

    1982-01-01

    The impact of a drug bulletin on prescribing oral analgesics in a teaching hospital was studied. Using an abbreviated time-series design, prescriptions for oral analgesics for all inpatients were surveyed one, three, and five weeks before and one, three, five, and seven weeks after the distribution of one of the hospital's regular drug bulletins. This bulletin contained guidelines for the treatment of minor, moderate, and severe pain. The 493 patients included in the study were classified by drug category, pain severity, and timer period. The drug categories were: (1) propoxyphene, (2) aspirin or acetaminophen alone or with codeine 8 mg or less, and (3) codeine alone or in combination products with more than codeine 8 mg, or other oral narcotic drugs. Each patient's pain severity was determined by interviewing attendant nursing staff; the validity of this approach was confirmed by correlating nurse and physician perception of pain at one time point. Multivariate contingency table analysis revealed that the drug bulletin significantly (p less than or equal to 0.05) reduced the prescribing of propoxyphene hydrochloride across both the minor and moderate pain categories. An increased use of aspirin and acetaminophen was significant three weeks after the release of the drug bulletin. This effect, however, was not significant at other time points. Drug bulletins can be used to achieve a temporary change in physician prescribing patterns of oral analgesics. For a sustained effect, alternative strategies are needed.

    Single-wall carbon nanotube SWCNT networks form a highly transparent and electrically conductive thin film that can be used to replace traditional transparent conducting oxides TCOs in a variety of applications. Here, the authors demonstrate their use as a transparent back contact in a near-infrared NIR transparent CdTe solar cell. SWCNT networks are hole-selective conductors and have a significantly greater NIR transparency than TCOs—qualities which could both make them very useful in tandem thin-film solar cells. SWCNT networks can be incorporated into single-junction CdTe devices and in CdTe top cells for mechanically stacked thin-film tandem devices, as described here. The best device efficiency using SWCNTs in the back contact was 12.4%, with 40%–50% transmission between 800 and 1500 nm.

  20. Assembly Test Article (ATA)

    Ricks, Glen A.

    1988-01-01

    The assembly test article (ATA) consisted of two live loaded redesigned solid rocket motor (RSRM) segments which were assembled and disassembled to simulate the actual flight segment stacking process. The test assembly joint was flight RSRM design, which included the J-joint insulation design and metal capture feature. The ATA test was performed mid-November through 24 December 1987, at Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Florida. The purpose of the test was: certification that vertical RSRM segment mating and separation could be accomplished without any damage; verification and modification of the procedures in the segment stacking/destacking documents; and certification of various GSE to be used for flight assembly and inspection. The RSRM vertical segment assembly/disassembly is possible without any damage to the insulation, metal parts, or seals. The insulation J-joint contact area was very close to the predicted values. Numerous deviations and changes to the planning documents were made to ensure the flight segments are effectively and correctly stacked. Various GSE were also certified for use on flight segments, and are discussed in detail.

  3. Facilitating faculty communications using an electronic bulletin board to store and organize listserv messages.

    PubMed Central

    Montgomery, C H; Keenan, P

    1995-01-01

    The Center for Academic Informatics of the Medical College of Pennsylvania and Hahnemann University uses BULLETIN, a public-domain bulletin board system for VMS, to facilitate communication between our faculty and staff and their colleagues at other institutions. In conjunction with the VAX electronic mail program, BULLETIN can store and organize messages from Internet listserv mailing lists. The software allows us to set up individual folders within BULLETIN for each list of interest to our users. This means that they do not have to sift through "lists of lists" in order to find the ones that coincide with their interests. Another significant advantage is that users' electronic mailboxes do not become cluttered with postings from a variety of lists, interfering with their ability to read and respond to their "real" electronic mail. Yet they can still post to lists, and the posting will be sent from their user name and electronic address. BULLETIN also offers a natural structure for setting up interest groups where local users can post announcements, questions, and answers. PMID:7599591
