  10. The UNOS renal transplant registry.

    Cecka, J M

    2001-01-01

    The shortage of cadaver kidneys relative to increasing demand for transplantation has lead to a remarkable rise in transplantation from living donors. Based upon data reported to UNOS, the number of living donor kidneys transplanted in 2000 (5,106) nearly equaled the number of cadaver kidneys from preferred donors aged 6-50. HLA-mismatched siblings, offspring, spouses and other genetically unrelated donors accounted for nearly 80% of increased living donor transplantation during 1994-2000. Despite the increased use of poorly HLA-matched living donor kidneys, the actuarial 10-year graft survival rates for transplants between 1988-2000 were clustered between 53-57% for HLA-mismatched living donor grafts, except for offspring-to-parent transplants (49%) when the recipients were generally older. The 10-year survival rate for 96,053 cadaver grafts was 38% during the same period. The 5-year graft survival rates for more recent (1996-2000) cadaver donor transplants were 66%, 62% and 56% for recipients of first, second and multiple grafts, respectively (p < 0.001). The comparable results among recipients of living donor kidneys were 67%, 66% and 59% (p = ns). The 5-year graft survival rates for HLA-matched first grafts were 7% higher than those for HLA-mismatched transplants when the kidney was from a living or cadaver donor. HLA-identical sibling transplants provided the best long-term graft survival (85% at 5 years and a 32 year half-life). Even with improved crossmatch tests and stronger immunosuppression, sensitization was associated with 8% lower graft survival at 5 years and with a higher rate of late graft loss among first cadaver kidney recipients. Sensitization also was associated with an increase in delayed graft function from 22% of unsensitized first transplant recipients to as much as 36% among multiply retransplanted patients. Recipient race was a key factor in long-term graft survival of both living and cadaver donor kidneys. The rate of late graft loss was

    2015-12-15

    AIN/Cu composite powders with a core-shell structure were synthesized by a new technique using electroless plating of Cu on AIN particles and consolidated by spark plasma sintering (SPS). Dependence of the thermal conductivity and coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of the AIN/Cu composites on the particle size of AIN were studied. The thermal conductivity and coefficient of thermal expansion were significantly dependent on the existence of both boundary pores surrounding the Cu-coated AIN particles and the internal pores of the AIN particles. In order to eliminate the pores, the temperature and pressure of SPS were increased and the AIN particles were heat-treated at high temperature. Adoption of the core-shell AIN/Cu composite powders facilitated the fabrications of AIN/Cu composites with low porosity and uniform distribution in the AIN in Cu matrix.

  15. Semiempirical UNO-CAS and UNO-CI: method and applications in nanoelectronics.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Dral, Pavlo O; Clark, Timothy

    2011-10-20

    Unrestricted Natural Orbital-Complete Active Space Configuration Interaction, abbreviated as UNO-CAS, has been implemented for NDDO-based semiempirical molecular-orbital (MO) theory. A computationally more economic technique, UNO-CIS, in which we use a configuration interaction (CI) calculation with only single excitations (CIS) to calculate excited states, has also been implemented and tested. The class of techniques in which unrestricted natural orbitals (UNOs) are used as the reference for CI calculations is denoted UNO-CI. Semiempirical UNO-CI gives good results for the optical band gaps of organic semiconductors such as polyynes and polyacenes, which are promising materials for nanoelectronics. The results of these semiempirical UNO-CI techniques are generally in better agreement with experiment than those obtained with the corresponding conventional semiempirical CI methods and comparable to or better than those obtained with far more computationally expensive methods such as time-dependent density-functional theory. We also show that symmetry breaking in semiempirical UHF calculations is very useful for predicting the diradical character of organic compounds in the singlet spin state.

    Lavelle, C. M.

    2018-05-01

    We review a simple gamma ray spectrometer constructed on a solderless breadboard. The spectrometer's detector consists of a CsI(Tl) scintillator and silicon photomultiplier (SiPM) and its readout is facilitated by an Arduino UNO. The system is low cost and utilizes a minimum of components while still achieving satisfactory charge linearity and noise levels. This instrument can be used in instructional laboratories to introduce both radiation detection and analog signal processing concepts. We also expect it will be of interest to those seeking to introduce gamma spectroscopy to the expanding ecosystem of Arduino hardware.

    We have calculated the electronic structure and optical properties of Wurtzite structure AIN under different high pressure with generalized gradient approximation (GGA) in this paper. The total energy, density of state, energy band structure and optical absorption and reflection properties under high pressure are calculated. By comparing the changes of the energy band structure, we obtained AIN phase transition pressure for 16.7 GPa, which is a direct band structure transforming to an indirect band structure. Meanwhile, according to the density of states distribution and energy band structure, we analyzed the optical properties of AIN under high-pressure, the results showed that the absorption spectra moved from low-energy to high-energy.

    1990-01-01

    CASA Uno data from sites distributed in longitude from Australia to Europe have been used to determine orbits of the GPS satellites. The characteristics of the orbits determined from double difference phase have been evaluated through comparisons of two-week solutions with one-week solutions and by comparisons of predicted and estimated orbits. Evidence of unmodeled effects is demonstrated, particularly associated with the orbit planes that experience solar eclipse. The orbit accuracy has been assessed through the repeatability of unconstrained estimated baseline vectors ranging from 245 km to 5400 km. Both the baseline repeatability and the comparison with independent space geodetic methods give results at the level of 1-2 parts in 100,000,000. In addition, the Mojave/Owens Valley (245 km) and Kokee Park/Ft. Davis (5409 km) estimates agree with VLBI and SLR to better than 1 part in 100,000,000.

    Full Text Available The objective of this essay is to show how the concept of number ‘one’ has changed, from its initial formal definition in Euclid’s The Elements until very recently. Some of these changes are mathematical, others are philosophical, and others are historical in character. This retrospective of the concept of number ‘one’ implies that the history of mathematics is much more complex and rich than that which is suggested by our intuition when we limit ourselves to a unique, lineal and continuous mathematics. El objetivo de este ensayo es mostrar cómo es que el concepto de número ‘uno’ ha cambiado, desde que se definió de manera formal en Los Elementos de Euclides hasta hace relativamente unos cuantos años.

    The feasibility of a next generation underground water Cherenkov detector is examined and a conceptual design (UNO) is presented. The design has a linear detector configuration with a total volume of 650 kton which is 13 times the total volume of the Super-Kamiokande detector. It corresponds to a 20 times increase in fiducial volume for physics analysis. The physics goals of UNO are to increase the sensitivity of the search for nucleon decay by a factor of ten and to make precision measurements of the solar and atmospheric neutrino properties. In addition, the detection sensitivity for supernova neutrinos will reach as far as the Andromeda galaxy

    Wang, Q M; Garkas, W; Renteria, A Flores; Leyens, C; Kim, K H

    2011-10-01

    In this paper, we reported the oxidation behaviour of Ti2AIN films on polycrystalline Al2O3 substrates. The Ti2AIN films composed mainly of nanolaminated MAX phase was obtained by first depositing Ti-Al-N films using reactive sputtering of two elemental Ti and Al targets in Ar/N2 atmosphere and subsequent vacuum annealing at 800 degrees C for 1 h. The Ti2AIN films exhibited excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability at 600-900 degrees C in air. Very low mass gain was observed. At low temperature (600 degrees C), no oxide crystals were observed on film surface. Blade-like Theta-Al2O3 fine crystals formed on film surfaces at 700-800 degrees C. At high temperature (900 degrees C), firstly Theta-Al2O3 formed on film surface and then transformed into alpha-Al2O3. At 700-900 degrees C, a continuous Al2O3 layer formed on Ti2AIN films surface, acting as diffusion barrier preventing further oxidation attack. The mechanism of the excellent oxidation resistance of Ti2AIN films was discussed based on the experimental results.

    The properties of leaky surface acoustic waves (LSAW) in MBE grown AIN layer on Z-cut LiNbO 3 structures have been studied by numerical simulation and experimental measurements and compared with those of Rayleigh waves in the same structure. In the range of AIN layer thicknesses studied (0 3 substrate was essentially constant at around 4400 m/s. The measured electromechanical coupling coefficients (K 2 ) for the LSAW are roughly 1/4 of the predicted values, which might be due to the strong attenuation of the leaky wave unaccounted for during the parameter extraction. The thin AIN film slightly improved the measured temperature coefficient of frequency for the LSAW over that attained for the Z-cut, X-propagating LiNbO 3 substrate alone

    1990-01-01

    In January 1988, scientists from over 25 organizations in 13 countries and territories cooperated in the largest GPS campaign in the world to date. A total of 43 GPS receivers collected approximately 590 station-days of data in American Samoa, Australia, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Sweden, United States, West Germany, and Venezuela. The experiment was entitled CASA Uno. Scientific goals of the project include measurements of strain in the northern Andes, subduction rates for the Cocos and Nazca plates beneath Central and South America, and relative motion between the Caribbean plate and South America. A second set of measurements are planned in 1991 and should provide preliminary estimates of crustal deformation and plate motion rates in the region.

    Razumov, S V; Egorov, A A

    2007-01-01

    A 9-month randomized open comparative trial was performed of efficacy and safety of combined treatment with prostamol Uno and tamsulosin followed by monotherapy with prostamol Uno. A total of 58 patients with prostatic adenoma (PA) treated with prostamol Uno in combination with tamsulosin were divided into two groups: 28 patients continued the above combined therapy, 30 patients were switched to monotherapy with prostamol Uno. All the patients were examined in the course of 4 visits according to standard protocol requesting information on the disease history, complaints, digital rectal examination, IPSS questionnaire, QOL, uroflowmetry with test for residual urine, transrectal ultrasonography of the prostate, blood test for PSA. The results of the trial show reduction of IPSS and QOL indices in 87% patients. QOL improved both in group 1 after 3 months of combined treatment and in group 2 who continued on monotherapy with prostamol Uno to the end of month 9 (p 0.05). Prostamol Uno was especially safe for hypotensive patients and those on antihypertensive therapy. After discontinuation of tamsulosin 100% patients of group 2 stopped exhibiting symptoms of retrograde ejaculation. None cases of a hypotonic reaction to the drug were registered. Mean cost of a course of therapy in group 1 to that of group 2 was 1:3.16. Thus, pharmacotherapy with prostamol Uno in moderate symptoms of PA is comparable in efficacy with combination prostamol Uno + tamsulosin, is safe and cost-effective.

    Full Text Available Abstrak Kebutuhan akan listrik akan terus meningkat dari tahun ke tahun, hal ini dikarenakan pembuatan produk yang menggunakan listrik sebagai energi nya juga gencar dikeluarkan oleh produsen sehingga kebutuhan akan listrik sudah menjadi kebutuhan yang sangat vital untuk masing-masing individu. Saat ini di negara kita telah dikembangkan listrik prabayar disamping listrik pasca bayar yang telah berjalan, fungsi dari listrik prabayar ini adalah untuk dapat mengontrol penggunaan dari listrik itu sendiri. Namun, penggunaan listrik prabayar tidak sepenuhnya digunakan secara optimal oleh pelanggan, dikarenakan pelanggan tidak mengetahui beban dari alat listrik yang digunakan sehingga tidak dapat melakukan kontrol dari pulsa listrik yang dibeli. Dari permasalahan itu peneliti mengusulkan untuk membuat suatu alat kontrol dengan menggunakan arduino uno sehingga pemilik dapat mengontrol penggunaan listriknya secara real time. Board Arduino berfungsi sebagai sistem kontrol pengambilan data, sebelum data tersebut di olah pada server. Terdapat sistem sensor berfungsi untuk pengambilan data ampere yaitu sensor AC712-20A dan modul relay sebagai saklar elektrik berfungsi untuk memutus daya listrik ketika pulsa tidak mencukupi. Dari hasil pengujian yang telah dilakukan, terdapat kesalahan pengukuran rata-rata sensor ACS712-20A dengan multitester sebesar 26%, sedangkan untuk pengukuran billing listrik prabayar terdapat kesalahan sebesar 6%.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Human papillomavirus (HPV is well known as the major etiological agent for ano-genital cancer. In contrast to cervical cancer, anal cancer is uncommon, but is increasing steadily in the community over the last few decades. However, it has undergone an exponential rise in the men who have sex with men (MSM and HIV + groups. HIV + MSM in particular, have anal cancer incidences about three times that of the highest worldwide reported cervical cancer incidences. Discussion There has therefore traditionally been a lack of data from studies focused on heterosexual men and non-HIV + women. There is also less evidence reporting on the putative precursor lesion to anal cancer (AIN – anal intraepithelial neoplasia, when compared to cervical cancer and CIN (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. This review summarises the available biological and epidemiological evidence for HPV in the anal site and the pathogenesis of AIN and anal cancer amongst traditionally non-high risk groups. Summary There is strong evidence to conclude that high-grade AIN is a precursor to anal cancer, and some data on the progression of AIN to invasive cancer.

  3. Fabrication and performance of AIN insulator coatings for application in fusion reactor blankets

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Natesan, K.

    1995-09-01

    The liquid-metal blanket concept for fusion reactors requires an coating on the first-wall structural material to minimize the magnetohydrodynamic pressure drop that occurs during the flow of liquid metal in a magnetic field. Based on the thermodynamics of interactions betwen the coating and the liquid lithium on one side and the structural V-base alloy on the other side, an AIN coating was selected as a candidate. Detailed investigations were conducted on the fabrication, metallurgical microstructure, compatibility in liquid Li, and electrical characteristics of AIN material obtained from several sources. Lithium compatibility was studied in static systems by exposing AIN-coated specimens to liquid Li for several time periods. Electrical resistance was measured at room temperature on the specimens before and after exposure to liquid Li. The results obtained in this study indicate that AIN is a viable coating from the standpoint of chemical compatibility in Li, electrical insulation, and ease of fabrication; for these reasons, the coating should be examined further for fusion reactor applications

    Full Text Available INTRODUCCIÓN: la higiene de las manos es considerada la estrategia más importante para prevenir infecciones asociadas con la atención de la salud. En nuestra institución, un estudio previo mostró que 93% del personal del hospital dijo conocer la técnica de higiene de manos, pero las observaciones de vigilancia activa no reflejaban estos resultados.   OBJETIVO: mejorar la técnica de higiene de manos apropiada a través de una estrategia de "uno a uno". MATERIAL Y MÉTODOS: estudio comparativo de antes y después, prospectivo, longitudinal, realizado entre 2012-2013, con personal de enfermería de cinco servicios. El estudio se realizó en tres etapas: la primer etapa consistió en observar la realización de higiene de manos reforzando verbalmente si era incorrecta; en la segunda etapa se pidió que se realizara la higiene de manos, si era incorrecta se pidió se repitiera realizándola al mismo tiempo con el observador; la tercera etapa fue la evaluación final de higiene de manos, después de al menos 15 días de la segunda etapa. Analizamos frecuencias de eventos correctos y realizamos comparaciones entre grupos por McNemar para evaluar si el efecto de la intervención se sostenía a pesar del tiempo; se evaluaron las mismas variables un año después del inicio del estudio. RESULTADOS: la prueba de McNemar mostró diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre la realización de la higiene de manos correcta entre la etapa 1 en comparación con las siguientes 35 versus 85%; p < 0.001.   CONCLUSIONES: se confirmó que la intervención dirigida logra mayor cooperación por parte del personal e incrementa la técnica correcta de higiene de manos a  orto plazo.

    There are several standard diets for animals used in scientific research, usually conceived by scientific institutions. The AIN-93 diet is widely used, but there are some reports of fatty liver in Wistar rats fed this diet. We aimed to evaluate the hepatic repercussions of the AIN-93 diet intake in Wistar rats. Forty newly-weaned 21-day-old male Wistar rats were fed either the AIN-93 diet or a commercial diet for either 1 month or 4 months. Weight gain, serum biochemistry, hepatic histology, and hepatic fatty acid profile were analyzed. Hepatic steatosis was observed, especially in the group fed the AIN-93 diet. Serum blood glucose, absolute and relative liver weight and hepatic levels of oleic, palmitoleic, stearic, and palmitic fatty acids were related to the observed steatosis, while lipidogram and serum markers of liver function and injury were not. AIN-93 diet induced acute hepatic steatosis in Wistar rats, which may compromise its use as a standard diet for experimental studies with rodents. The hepatic fatty acid profile was associated with steatosis, with possible implications for disease prognosis. Copyright AULA MEDICA EDICIONES 2014. Published by AULA MEDICA. All rights reserved.

    2009-12-01

    The urban growth of AL Ain city has been investigated using remote sensing data for three different dates, 1972, 1990 and 2000. We used three Landsat images together with socio-economic data in a post-classification analysis to map the spatial dynamics of land use/cover changes and identify the urbanization process in Al Ain resort city, United Arab Emirates. Land use/cover statistics, extracted from Landsat Multi-spectral Scanner (MSS). Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM +) images for 1972. 1990 and 2000 respectively, revealed that the built-up area has expanded by about 170.53km2. The city was found to have a tendency for major expansion in four different directions: along the Abu Dhabi highway, along Dubai highway, Myziad direction and Hafeet recreational area. Expansion in any direction was found to be governed by the availability of road network, suitability for construction, utilities, economic activities, geographical constraints, and legal factors (boundary with Sultanate of Oman). The road network in particular has influenced the spatial patterns and structure of urban development, so that the expansion of the built-up areas has assumed an accretive as well as linear growth along the major roads. The research concludes that the development is based on conservation of agricultural areas (oases) and reclamation of the desert for farming and agricultural activities. The integration of remote sensing and GIS was found to be effective in monitoring LULC changes and providing valuable information necessary for planning and research.

    Three different schemes are employed to solve the benchmark problem. The first one is a conventional TVD-MUSCL (Monotone Upwind Schemes for Conservation Laws) scheme. The second scheme is a UNO3-ACM (Uniformly Non-Oscillatory Artificial Compression Method) scheme. The third scheme is an optimized compact finite difference scheme modified by us: the 4th order Runge Kutta time stepping, the 4th order pentadiagonal compact spatial discretization with the maximum resolution characteristics. The problems of category 1 are solved by using the second (UNO3-ACM) and third (Optimized Compact) schemes. The problems of category 2 are solved by using the first (TVD3) and second (UNO3-ACM) schemes. The problem of category 5 is solved by using the first (TVD3) scheme. It can be concluded from the present calculations that the Optimized Compact scheme and the UN03-ACM show good resolutions for category 1 and category 2 respectively.

    2008-11-01

    The Honduras AIN-C programme is a preventive health and nutrition programme of the Honduras Ministry of Health (MOH) that relies on volunteers to help mothers monitor and maintain the adequate growth of young children. A quasi-experimental, design-based evaluation found that the programme achieved near-universal coverage and was effective in improving mothers' child-rearing knowledge, attitudes and practices, including feeding and appropriate care-giving and care-seeking practices for children with diarrhoea and acute respiratory illness. The programme is widely regarded as a model. This study was undertaken to provide the first comprehensive estimates of the cost of the AIN-C programme, with the goal of providing a programme and financial planning tool for Honduras. An additional comparison of study findings was also undertaken to determine the cost of the AIN-C programme's community-based services relative to a similar facility-based service. Expressed in mid-2005 US dollars, the study found that after the programme is phased-in: (1) the annual, recurrent cost per child under 2 years participating in the programme is $6.43; (2) the annual, incremental budget requirements per child under 2 years participating in the programme are $3.90; (3) the cost of an AIN-C monthly growth monitoring and counselling session per child is 11% of the cost of a traditional MOH, facility-based growth and development consultation per child; and (4) the effect of mothers substituting AIN-C monitor care for MOH facility-based care 'saves' 203 000 outpatient visits a year, with a potential cost saving of $1.66 million, the equivalent of 60% of the recurrent cost of the programme and roughly equal to the annual incremental budget requirements of the programme. Sensitivity analysis of the cost estimates is performed to provide insight, for countries considering introducing a similar programme, into how modifications of key characteristics of the programme affect its costs.

    Blooms of toxic cyanobacteria in Algerian reservoirs represent a potential health problem, mainly from drinking water that supplies the local population of Ain Zada (Bordj Bou Arreridj). The objective of this study is to monitor, detect, and identify the existence of cyanobacteria and microcystins during blooming times. Samples were taken in 2013 from eight stations. The results show that three potentially toxic cyanobacterial genera with the species Planktothrix agardhii were dominant. Cyanobacterial biomass, phycocyanin (PC) concentrations, and microcystin (MC) concentrations were high in the surface layer and at 14 m depth; these values were also high in the treated water. On 11 May 2013, MC concentrations were 6.3 μg/L in MC-LR equivalent in the drinking water. This study shows for the first time the presence of cyanotoxins in raw and treated waters, highlighting that regular monitoring of cyanobacteria and cyanotoxins must be undertaken to avoid potential health problems.

    Being seen needs in increasing waters in our contry for fine domestics, manufactures and agricultural, the prospecting of subterranean waters by geologic and hydrogeologic classic method remains inaplicable in the cases of the regions where one does not arrange drillings or polls (soundings) of gratitude (recongnition) in very sufficient (self-important) number. In that case of figure, the method of prospecting geophysics such as the method of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and the method of the geophysics radar are usually used most usually because they showed, worldwide, results very desive in the projects of prospecting and evaluation of the resources in subterranean waters.

    We present structure and spatially resolved composition studies by TEM (Transmission Electron Microscopy) and XANES (X-ray Absorption Near Edge Structure) of InAIN MOVPE (Metal-Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy) epilayers containing 16-27 at% of indium. Investigations of the In L 3 edge by synchrotron radiation absorption show a significant change of the post-edge structure depending on the indium content. We attribute this to the solubility limit and phase separation in this system. Our measurements suggest that the critical composition is 18% for our growth conditions. HRTEM cross-sectional and EDX investigations confirm such phase separation as well as the changing of the structure from 2D growth to columnar like growth for the sample with the highest indium content.

    A significant number of patients return to optometric practice dissatisfied with their spectacles. An important question is whether any of these cases are preventable. There are several different clinical maxims that are used to modify the subjective refraction when determining the refractive prescription. These maxims aim to improve patient comfort and adaptation and thereby reduce patient dissatisfaction with new spectacles. They are not based on research evidence, but rather on expert opinion gained from clinical experience. The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze a large number of case records of dissatisfied patients to assess the possible usefulness of the prescribing maxim "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Three hundred eighteen non-tolerance cases from a university-based Canadian optometric clinic were categorized by a focus group of optometrists. Three prescribing categories were defined and comprised cases in which application of the proposed maxim may have prevented the recheck eye examination; a more limited application of the maxim for one working distance may have been appropriate; and finally scenarios in which the maxim did not work in that the practitioner was judged to have initially followed the maxim, yet patient dissatisfaction was still reported. The remaining unallocated records comprised prescribing situations outside the scope of this study. Approximately 32% of non-tolerance cases were judged to have been preventable by use of the proposed maxim. Furthermore, an additional 10% reduction in recheck cases may have been possible by a more liberal interpretation of the maxim. Conversely, 4% of cases were deemed to comprise scenarios in which the maxim was followed yet the patient returned later to report problems with their spectacles. The prescribing maxim "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" appears to have a role in reducing recheck eye examinations and improving patient satisfaction with new spectacles.

    Comparative experimental evaluation of the efficiency of prostatotropic drugs Prostamol Uno and Samprost on the model of the chronic aseptic prostate inflammation in rats was performed. It was established that peptide drug Samprost decelerates sclerotic processes in the prostate gland to a greater extent than herbal preparation Prostamol Uno. Both products equally stimulate secretory activity of the gland. Prostamol Uno, unlike Samprost, prevents the development of reduced sexual motivation, one of the complications of chronic prostatitis.

    Technological developments today make the combination of science is very common, including in Computer Science and Agriculture to make both of science need each other. This paper aims to develop a control tool for the flow of nutrients of hydroponic plants automatically using Arduino microcontroller and controlled by smartphone. We use an Arduino Uno microcontroller to automatically control the flow of nutrient solution with logic if else. The microcontroller can also send data of fluid level (solution) and temperature around the plant to smartphone android of the owner of the hydroponics plant. The height of the nutrient solution (water) is detected by the Ultrasonic sensor HC-SR04 and the temperature is detected by the temperature sensor LM35. Data from the sensor will forward into Arduino Uno and displayed in liquid crystal display (LCD) then via wireless fidelity (WIFI) ESP8266 module will transmit the height of the nutrient solution and the temperature around of the plants to Android smartphone.

    Full Text Available Se realiza una revisión extensa y actualizada sobre los antiinflamatorios no esteroideos (AINEs, con el fin de actualizar al estomatólogo en su uso. Para ello se revisan aspectos importantes del proceso inflamatorio en estructuras de la boca que como las pulpitis, presentan sus peculiaridades. Se identifica a una de las 2 familias de autacoides provenientes de los fosfolípidos de membrana celular, es decir, los eicosanoides derivados a partir de algunos ácidos grasos polisaturados, en particular, ácido araquidónico, que tras la acción de enzimas da lugar a la formación de prostaglandinas, prostaciclinas, tromboxeno A2 y leucotrienos. Conocidos estos antecedentes, nos ocupamos de fármacos usados para combatir los síntomas y signos de la inflamación. Casi todos los antiinflamatorios no esteroideos utilizados en la actualidad, casi todos, inhiben las actividades de la ciclooxigenasa 1 constitutiva y la ciclooxigenasa 2, inducida en el sitio de la inflamación y con ello, la síntesis de prostaglandinas y tromboxanos. Se alude a la ventaja terapéutica de los inhibidores de la COX-2 que aparecen hoy en el mercado. Se expone las dosis y frecuencias de los AINEs, sus interacciones, así como las reacciones adversas al medicamento y contraindicaciones, y se proponen aquellos que son de interés en la práctica estomatológica.Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

    Full Text Available AIM: To study the mechanism of road traffic collisions (RTC, use of safety devices, and outcome of hospitalized pediatric and youth RTC injured patients so as to give recommendations regarding prevention of pediatric RTC injuries. METHODS: All RTC injured children and youth (0-19-year-olds who were admitted to Al Ain City's two major trauma centers or who died after arrival to these centers were prospectively studied from April 2006 to October 2007. Demography of patients, road-user and vehicle types, crash mechanism, usage of safety devices, injured body regions, injury severity, Revised Trauma Score, Glasgow Coma Scale, intensive care unit admissions, hospital stay and mortality were analyzed. RESULTS: 245 patients were studied, 69% were vehicle occupants, 15% pedestrians, 9% motorcyclists and 5% bicyclists. 79% were males and 67% UAE citizens. The most common mechanism of RTC was rollover of vehicle (37% followed by front impact collision (32%. 32 (13% of vehicle occupants were ejected from car. 63% of ejected occupants and 70% of motorcyclists sustained head injuries. Only 2% (3/170 vehicle passengers used seatbelts and 13% (3/23 motorcyclists a helmet. CONCLUSIONS: Male drivers and UAE nationals were at high risk of RTC as drivers and as motorcyclists. Ejection rate was high because safety restraint use was extremely low in our community. More education and law enforcement focusing especially on car/booster seat use is needed.

    Hydrochemical, multivariate statistical, and inverse geochemical modeling techniques were used to investigate the hydrochemical evolution within the Ain Azel aquifer, Algeria. Cluster analysis based on major ion contents defined 3 main chemical water types, reflecting different hydrochemical processes. The first group water, group 1, has low salinity (mean EC = 735 μS/cm). The second group waters are classified as Cl-HCO(3)-alkaline earth type. The third group is made up of water samples, the cation composition of which is dominated by Ca and Mg with anion composition varying from dominantly Cl to dominantly HCO(3) plus SO(4). The varifactors obtained from R-mode FA indicate that the parameters responsible for groundwater quality variations are mainly related to the presence and dissolution of some carbonate, silicate, and evaporite minerals in the aquifer. Inverse geochemical modeling along groundwater flow paths indicates the dominant processes are the consumption of CO(2), the dissolution of dolomite, gypsum, and halite, along with the precipitation of calcite, Ca-montmorillonite, illite, kaolinite, and quartz. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2011

    Background Although vitamin D deficiency has been studied in various adult populations, there are few data on the prevalence of this nutritional deficiency among healthy adolescents in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This study was conducted to determine the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency and to examine its correlates in adolescents aged 15 to 18 years. Methods This was a cross-sectional study in urban schools. Healthy adolescents (N=315) from a sample of 8 schools were randomly selected from the 142 schools in Al Ain, Abu Dhabi Emirate. Outcomes measured included serum concentrations of 25-hydroxy vitamin D (25OHD), plasma lipids, blood sugar, blood pressure and anthropometric data, nutrition and lifestyle variables. Results Fourty-one participants (19.7%) were vitamin D deficient (serum 25OHD level ≤15 ng/mL [≤37.5 nmol/L]. Using a cutoff level of 25(OH) D of ≤20 ng/ml [≤50 nmol/l] 143 participants (45.4%) were vitamin D insufficient. Overall 65.1% of study participants were either vitamin D deficient or insufficient. The prevalence of vitamin D deficiency varied between boys (10%) and girls (28%). In a final multivariate model, serum 25(OH) D concentrations were inversely correlated with female gender, consumption of fast food per week, and body mass index and positively correlated with physical activity scores after adjustment for age. Conclusions Vitamin D deficiency and insufficiency were highly prevalent in adolescents, and more common in girls. PMID:23311702

    Full Text Available Algeria does not escape the problem of the climate change, its geographical position in zone of transition, and its dry and semi-arid climate, in fact a very vulnerable space. In Algeria, approximately two thirds of the population is concentrated on the coast which represents only 4 % of the territory. The Mediterranean coast, in particular in Algeria, is subjected to pressures: financial stakes, climatic risks, pollutions and conservation of the water. It is on the basis of the critical and objective report with regard to a wild urbanization of the Algerian coast as well as the influence of the demographic pressure that the choice of the search for this article was held. This publication has for objective to raise (to draw up a current situation (inventory of fixtures of the sector of the environment in Algeria and to present through the case of the coastal city of Oran the consequences of climate change. We propose, to review the situation through the case of the municipality of Ain El Türck, by basing itself on data relative to the evolution of the temperatures and the sea level.

    Ain Shams area, Western Arabian Shield, Saudi Arabia, is occupied by four main rock units; gneisses, metavolcanics, metasediments and syn- to post-tectonic granitoids. Field and structural studies reveal that the area was subjected to at least three phases of deformation (D1, D2 and D3). The structural features of the D1 are represented by tight to isoclinal and intrafolial folds (F1), axial plane foliation (S1) and stretching lineations (L1). This phase is believed to be resulted from an early NW-SE contractional phase due to the amalgamation between Asir and Jeddah tectonic terranes. D2 deformation phase progressively overprinted D1 structures and was dominated by thrusts, minor and major F2 thrust-related overturned folds. These structures indicate a top-to-the-NW movement direction and compressional regime during the D2 phase. Emplacement of the syn-tectonic granitoids is likely to have occurred during this phase. D3 structures are manifested F3 folds, which are open with steep to subvertical axial planes and axes moderately to steeply plunging towards the E, ENE and ESE directions, L3 is represented by crenulation lineations and kink bands. These structures attest NE-SW contractional phase, concurrent with the accretion of the Arabian-Nubian Shield (ANS) to the Saharan Metacraton (SM) and the final assembly between the continental blocks of East and West Gondwana.

    Factors that influence performance of community health workers (CHWs) delivering health services are not well understood. A recent logic model proposed categories of support from both health sector and communities that influence CHW performance and program outcomes. This logic model has been used to review a growth monitoring program delivered by CHWs in Honduras, known as Atención Integral a la Niñez en la Comunidad (AIN-C). A retrospective review of AIN-C was conducted through a document desk review and supplemented with in-depth interviews. Documents were systematically coded using the categories from the logic model, and gaps were addressed through interviews. Authors reviewed coded data for each category to analyze program details and outcomes as well as identify potential issues and gaps in the logic model. Categories from the logic model were inconsistently represented, with more information available for health sector than community. Context and input activities were not well documented. Information on health sector systems-level activities was available for governance but limited for other categories, while not much was found for community systems-level activities. Most available information focused on program-level activities with substantial data on technical support. Output, outcome, and impact data were drawn from various resources and suggest mixed results of AIN-C on indicators of interest. Assessing CHW performance through a desk review left gaps that could not be addressed about the relationship of activities and performance. There were critical characteristics of program design that made it contextually appropriate; however, it was difficult to identify clear links between AIN-C and malnutrition indicators. Regarding the logic model, several categories were too broad (e.g., technical support, context) and some aspects of AIN-C did not fit neatly in logic model categories (e.g., political commitment, equity, flexibility in implementation).

    The effect of the tracking network on long (greater than 100 km) GPS baseline estimates was estimated using various subsets of the global tracking network initiated by the first Central and South America (CASA Uno) experiment. It was found that best results could be obtained with a global tacking network consisting of three U.S. stations, two sites in the southwestern Pacific, and two sites in Europe. In comparison with smaller subsets, this global network improved the baseline repeatability, the resolution of carrier phase cycle ambiguities, and formal errors of the orbit estimates.

    RESUMEN

    El objetivo de este trabajo fue analizar de forma comparativa en Minibasket el número de situaciones de un atacante contra un defensor que se producían al jugar con la línea que define la zona del área restringida como línea de tres puntos con respecto a una línea de tres puntos rectangular. Participaron 67 jugadoras (edad: M = 10.39 años, SD = 0.67, de seis equipos diferentes. De estas jugadoras se obtuvieron 1642 posesiones de balón en un primer campeonato y 1669 posesiones de balón en un segundo. Se utilizó la metodología observacional. Tras formar a cuatro observadores, la fiabilidad del registro obtenida a través del coeficiente de correlación mediante el estadístico de Pearson, alcanzó valores entre .83 y .93. Las diferencias significativas encontradas entre los dos campeonatos (p = .019, revelaron que al jugar con la línea de tres puntos delimitada por la zona restringida se consiguen un 3.9% más situaciones de un atacante contra un defensor, lo que puede favorecer en mayor medida el desarrollo de la inteligencia ante la toma de decisión. No obstante, el número de situaciones de uno contra uno en ambos campeonatos se considera escaso. A partir de los resultados, se indican una serie de recomendaciones sobre el reglamento.

    Background Over the last 30 years the citizens of the United Arab Emirates have experienced major changes in life-style secondary to increased affluence. Currently, 1 in 5 adults have diabetes mellitus, but the associations (clustering) among risk factors, as well as the relevance of the concept of the metabolic syndrome, in this population is unknown. Aim To investigate the prevalence and associations among cardiovascular risk factors in this population, and explore to what extent associations can be explained by the metabolic syndrome according to ATP-III criteria. Method A community based survey, of conventional risk factors for cardiovascular disease was conducted among 817 national residents of Al Ain city, UAE. These factors were fasting blood sugar, blood pressure, lipid profile, BMI, waist circumference, smoking, or CHD family history. Odds ratios between risks factors, both unadjusted and adjusted for age and sex as well as adjusted for age, sex, and metabolic syndrome were calculated.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Over the last 30 years the citizens of the United Arab Emirates have experienced major changes in life-style secondary to increased affluence. Currently, 1 in 5 adults have diabetes mellitus, but the associations (clustering among risk factors, as well as the relevance of the concept of the metabolic syndrome, in this population is unknown. Aim To investigate the prevalence and associations among cardiovascular risk factors in this population, and explore to what extent associations can be explained by the metabolic syndrome according to ATP-III criteria. Method A community based survey, of conventional risk factors for cardiovascular disease was conducted among 817 national residents of Al Ain city, UAE. These factors were fasting blood sugar, blood pressure, lipid profile, BMI, waist circumference, smoking, or CHD family history. Odds ratios between risks factors, both unadjusted and adjusted for age and sex as well as adjusted for age, sex, and metabolic syndrome were calculated. Results Various risk factors were positively associated in this population; associations that are mostly unexplained by confounding by age and sex. For example, hypertension and diabetes were still strongly related (OR 2.5; 95% CI 1.7–3.7 after adjustment. An increased waist circumference showed similar relationship with hypertension (OR 2.3; 95% CI 1.5–3.5. Diabetes was related to an increased BMI (OR 1.5; 96% CI 1.0–2.3.

    Floodplain development is associated with lateral accretion along stable channel geometry. Along shifting rivers, the floodplain sedimentation is more complex because of changes in channel position but also cutoff channel presence, which exhibit specific overflow patterns. In this contribution, the spatial and temporal variability of sedimentation rates in cutoff channel infill deposits is related to channel changes of a shifting gravel bed river (Ain River, France). The sedimentation rates estimated from dendrogeomorphic analysis are compared between and within 14 cutoff channel infills. Detailed analyses along a single channel infill are performed to assess changes in the sedimentation rates through time by analyzing activity profiles of the fallout radionuclides 137Cs and unsupported 210Pb. Sedimentation rates are also compared within the channel infills with rates in other plots located in the adjacent floodplain. Sedimentation rates range between 0.65 and 2.4 cm a−1 over a period of 10 to 40 years. The data provide additional information on the role of distance from the bank, overbank flow frequency, and channel geometry in controlling the sedimentation rate. Channel infills, lower than adjacent floodplains, exhibit higher sedimentation rates and convey overbank sediment farther away within the floodplain. Additionally, channel degradation, aggradation, and bank erosion, which reduce or increase the distance between the main channel and the cutoff channel aquatic zone, affect local overbank flow magnitude and frequency and therefore sedimentation rates, thereby creating a complex mosaic of sedimentation zones within the floodplain and along the cutoff channel infills. Last, the dendrogeomorphic and 137Cs approaches are cross validated for estimating the sedimentation rate within a channel infill.

    Two methods of surface improvement widely used in the modern plastics industry are compared, with a view to improving productivity and product quality. Ion implantation of plastics and physical vapour deposition coatings both offer surface engineering advantages. Each method is described and evaluated with reference to plastics moulding. TiAIN coatings are used to protect hard bulk materials, subjected to evenly distributed loads. The more ductile CrN coatings are used for softer materials which give less support to the coatings.

Esaminando il modo in cui è proposta nel Tractatus e considerando alcune annotazioni dei Quaderni 1914-1916 si evidenzia che l’unità di etica ed estetica è in un modo di vedere il mondo per cui esso non appare come fonte di limitazione. L’etica è un’estensione al mondo - alla vita - della capacità di conferire significato che nell’arte si realizza nei riguardi di oggetti particolari. Affermando l’unità di etica ed estetica Wittgenstein attira l’attenzione sul fatto che la radice dell’etica è in un certo modo di vedere le cose, in un atteggiamento verso la vita. Si tratta della prospettiva di un valore non connesso a come il mondo è e che è evocato dalla meraviglia per l’esistenza del mondo.

    Wet tropospheric path delay can be a major error source for Global Positioning System (GPS) geodetic experiments. Strategies for minimizing this error are investigted using data from CASA Uno, the first major GPS experiment in Central and South America, where wet path delays may be both high and variable. Wet path delay calibration using water vapor radiometers (WVRs) and residual delay estimation is compared with strategies where the entire wet path delay is estimated stochastically without prior calibration, using data from a 270-km test baseline in Costa Rica. Both approaches yield centimeter-level baseline repeatability and similar tropospheric estimates, suggesting that WVR calibration is not critical for obtaining high precision results with GPS in the CASA region.

    Los antiinflamatorios no esteroideos (AINES son un grupo heterogéneo de compuestos con actividad analgésica, antipirética y antiinflamatoria que comparten efectos secundarios indeseables, tales como: ulceración gástrica e intestinal, anemia, bloqueo de la agregación plaquetaria, inhibición de la motilidad uterina e hipersensibilidad. Los AINES se utilizan por vía tópica con el fin de aliviar lesiones en tejidos blandos a los cuales puede llegarse directamente a través de la piel, evitando así los efectos colaterales indeseables.

    Actualmente para la gran mayoría de los medicamentos se exige valorar la Biodisponibilidad como criterio de calidad. Biodisponibilidad se define como la cantidad de fármaco que llega a sangre o plasma después de la administración del medicamento que lo contiene y la velocidad a la cual este proceso ocurre; esta determinación de Biodisponibilidad no resulta útil en el caso de medicamentos que se administran a través de la piel y no alcanzan circulación sistémica; la biodisponibilidad relativa o Bioequivalencia es la comparación de las biodisponibilidades de dos medicamentos para determinar si son similares en su comportamiento farmacocinético dentro del organismo.

    El presente trabajo pretende estandarizar y validar un método que permita determinar concentraciones de fármaco en tejidos, en este tipo de medicamentos administrados por vía tópica, que no alcanzan circulación sistémica y por lo tanto no pueden ser cuantificados en sangre o plasma; además pretendemos que esta metodología pueda ser propuesta como una técnica para determinar biodisponibilidad y/o bioequivalencia para este tipo de productos.

    Microcontroller systems can be a boon to cost - effective techniques that can be used to enhance teaching at college level. We have used Arduino microcontroller coupled with commercially available sensors to systematically measure, record and analyze temperature, humidity and barometric pressure and to upload the real time raw data to cloud. Corresponding data will be available in classroom settings for predictions, analysis and simple weather forecasting. Setup was assembled via breadboard, wire and simple soldering with an Arduino Uno ATmega328P microcontroller connected to a PC. The microcontroller was programmed with Arduino Software while the bootloader was used to upload the code. Commercial DHT22 humidity and temperature sensor and BMP180 barometric pressure sensor were used to obtain relative humidity, temperature and the barometric pressure. System was mounted inside a weather resistant enclosure and data measurements were obtained and were uploaded onto the PC and then to cloud. Cloud data can be accessed via a shared link in a General Education class for multitude of purposes.

    While PhysioNet is a large database for standard clinical vital signs measurements, such a database does not exist for unobtrusively measured signals. This inhibits progress in the vital area of signal processing for unobtrusive medical monitoring as not everybody owns the specific measurement systems to acquire signals. Furthermore, if no common database exists, a comparison between different signal processing approaches is not possible. This gap will be closed by our UnoViS database. It contains different recordings in various scenarios ranging from a clinical study to measurements obtained while driving a car. Currently, 145 records with a total of 16.2 h of measurement data is available, which are provided as MATLAB files or in the PhysioNet WFDB file format. In its initial state, only (multichannel) capacitive ECG and unobtrusive PPG signals are, together with a reference ECG, included. All ECG signals contain annotations by a peak detector and by a medical expert. A dataset from a clinical study contains further clinical annotations. Additionally, supplementary functions are provided, which simplify the usage of the database and thus the development and evaluation of new algorithms. The development of urgently needed methods for very robust parameter extraction or robust signal fusion in view of frequent severe motion artifacts in unobtrusive monitoring is now possible with the database.

    The effects of climate change and overexploitation are being strongly perceived in the studied area and the springs discharge is obviously affected. In this paper, Ras El Ain spring discharge and precipitation were analyzed by normalized methods on an yearly timescale. The deficit of Ras El Ain spring discharge due to overexploitation factors and drought effects was estimated. Cumulative drought analyses were carried out using SPI10 and SQI10. Finally, the decreasing trends of the spring discharge due to the deficiency in rainfall were analyzed. The main results reveal that the annual mean deficit of Ras El Ain spring discharge due to overpumping was between 32 and 45%, whereas, annual mean deficit related to drought was between 22 and 35% on average, during the last 30 years (post-1984). The moving averages of SPI and SQI delineate very well the drought periods during last three decades. The cumulative droughts using SPI10 and SQI10 reveal that wet period (pre-1984) with positive values was characterized by high precipitation and spring discharge. Overexploitation period (1984-1989) is distinguished by decreasing SQI10 values whereas, SPI10 is almost stable. The response of the karst system to the precipitation signal has been changed, during the drought period (1990-2000), and the spring behaviour has been modified due to the first overexploitation period. Finally, overexploitation period (2001-2008) is related to the second phase of groundwater intensive pumping for irrigation purposes. Consequently, this period is completely catastrophic causing the drying up of the spring. The decreasing trends analyzed using DPI and DQI showed annual decreasing rates relative to the mean values of -0.268% and -0.105%, respectively. Thus, the results of theoretical model reveal that precipitation will decrease by about DPI = -20.7% and the discharge will decline by about -9.2% by 2050. Consequently, the declining discharge due to climatic variation under natural conditions as

    In the semiarid central part of Tunisia the water resources are becoming increasingly rare because of the scarcity and irregularity of the precipitation and a steadily growing need for fresh water. This study addresses the use of geochemical and isotopic data to analyze the relationship between the El Haouareb dam and the Ain El Beidha and the Kairouan alluvial plain aquifers systems for durable groundwater management. In the Ain El Beidha basin the hydrogeological and geochemical investigations showed that: - The general direction of the groundwater flow is mainly from the SW to the NE, i.e. towards the hydraulic sill of El Haouareb which allows the connection between the Ain El Beidha basin and the Kairouan plain, - The salinity distribution displays a zonation in apparent relationship with the lithological variation of the aquifer formation, - Mineral exchange between groundwater and the aquifer matrix is the dominant process in determining groundwater salinity. The isotopic data confirm the flow directions of groundwater and shows that the recharge of Ain El Beidha aquifers takes place from the floods of the Khechem and Ben Zitoun wadies and also by preferential infiltration of runoff at the front of hill slopes area. Close to preferential recharge areas, groundwater 3H contents reflect a recent input of surface water, whereas the radiocarbon data indicate a longer residence time downstream. The isotopic characteristics of Ain El Beidha groundwater (small space and temporal changes) authorize the use of averaged values for the dam-aquifer water exchange. Under natural conditions, groundwater recharge of the alluvial aquifer of Kairouan plain occurs by infiltration of the Merguellil floods and from the Ain el Beidha groundwater flow close the karstic hydraulic sills. Since the construction of the El Haouareb dam, these natural mechanisms have been strongly modified: the dam waters infiltrate into the karst, mix with the Ain el Beidha groundwater, and feed the

    Obiettivi: gli infortuni lavorativi, in particolare quelli subiti da minorenni, rappresentano un problema di notevole importanza sociale: in Italia, da dati INPS, risultano lavorare circa 68 adolescenti su 1000. L’obiettivo di questo studio è stato quello di raccogliere informazioni sugli infortuni lavorativi avvenuti a minori (14-17 anni in 14 città italiane nel periodo gennaio-giugno 2000. Metodi: si tratta di uno studio epidemiologico descrittivo, basato sulle informazioni raccolte consultando direttamente le cartelle cliniche presso centri di Pronto Soccorso (PS attivi nelle città coinvolte. Sono stati presi in considerazione tutti gli infortuni avvenuti a minori: tra questi sono stati considerati come lavorativi quelli accaduti nel corso di attività descritta come lavorativa e quelli occorsi “in itinere”. Le analisi statistiche sono state condotte con SPSS; è stata effettuata una cluster analysis per evidenziare eventuali sottogruppi omogenei. Risultati: la popolazione residente nelle aree indagate di età tra 14 e 17 anni è stata stimata in circa 850.000 soggetti, pari al 31% della popolazione italiana della stessa età: gli infortuni totali sono risultati 13423 di cui 317 lavorativi (2.4%. I soggetti di sesso maschile, diciassettenni, impiegati nel comparto industriale sono risultati il gruppo maggiormente coinvolto: la prognosi è risultata per lo più inferiore a 8 giorni.

    Full Text Available [Reading “De uno” in light of Francis Bacon’s “Exemplum tractatus de iustitia universali, sive de fontibus iuris”]. Although Vico was admittedly disappointed by Bacon’s Exemplum tractatus, a parallel reading of this text and De uno can provide insights as to how Vico ended up having to confront a series of issues: how does the universal law project itself into history? Where does the law stem from? Is there a link between law, occasion, and utility? What are the sources and the scope of authority? How does violence affect the law? What role for religion and piety? How to devise a philology for the laws and ancient fables? Bacon’s scattered aphorisms offer glimpses into problems which find a solution in the all-encompassing order of De uno.

    2003-01-01

    This work is an attempt to estimate the mean residence time of groundwater in the Ain Al-Tanour and Ain-Samak, which are the major karst springs in the Upper Orontes Basin (Central Syria). This estimate, which consists on the application of a mathematical modeling approach, was based on the use of tritium, as a natural radioisotope tracer and a tool for ground water age dating. By adopting a completely mixed reservoir model, linked with exponential time distribution function, the mean residence time (turnover time) of these two springs was evaluated to be about 50 years. This result is in good agreement with previous estimation obtained for the Figeh main spring, which belongs to the same aquifer (Cenomanian-Turonian complex) in the Damascus Basin. On the basis of this evaluation, a value of about 800 million m 3 was obtained for the maximum groundwater reservoir size

    High solar performance W-AIN cermet solar coatings were designed using a numerical computer model and deposited experimentally. In the numerical calculations aluminium oxynitride (AlON) was used as ceramic component. The dielectric functions and then complex refractive index of W-AlON cermet materials were calculated using the Sheng's approximation. The layer thickness and W metal volume fraction were optimised to achieve maximum photo-thermal conversion efficiency for W-AlON cermet solar coatings on an Al reflector with a surface AlON ceramic anti-reflection layer. Optimisation calculations show that the W-AlON cermet solar coatings with two and three cermet layers have nearly identical solar absorptance, emittance and photo-thermal conversion efficiency that are much better than those for films with one cermet layer. The optimised calculated AlON/W-AlON/Al solar coating film with two cermet layers has a high solar absorptance of 0.953 and a low hemispherical emittance of 0.051 at 80{sup o}C for a concentration factor of 2. The AlN/W-AlN/Al solar selective coatings with two cermet layers were deposited using two metal target direct current magnetron sputtering technology. During the deposition of W-AlN cermet layer, both Al and W targets were run simultaneously in a gas mixture of argon and nitrogen. By substrate rotation a multi-sub-layer system consisting of alternating AlN ceramic and W metallic sub-layers was deposited that can be considered as a macro-homogeneous W-AlN cermet layer. A solar absorptance of 0.955 and nearly normal emittance of 0.056 at 80{sup o}C have been achieved for deposited W-AlN cermet solar coatings. (author)

    1998-06-01

    A combination of several exploration techniques was carried out at the main phosphatic outcrop of Ain Laylon in the Syrian coastal region. The survey was extended along an E-W profile parallel to Wadi Al-Mzeraa over a distance of about 23 km from Ain Laylon site towards the shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea. The techniques used in this survey included soil radon emanometry, gamma ray spectrometry and soil geochemistry, with the purpose of evaluating the effects of weathering and erosion on the uranium-hearing phosphate formations in the study ares. Soil radon concentration and gamma ray total count rates found to be ranging between 115-472 pCi/l and 52-520 cps over the main phosphate deposit of Ain Layton and between 16-241 pCi/l and 15-300 cps along the profile of Wadi Al-Mzeraa - Rwemiyeh respectively. Some suitable elements such as U, Zn, Pb, Cr, Fe and Sr were also analyzed to trace the dispersion pattern of uranium and its controls throughout the area. The results showed that the distribution of both radon emission and gamma ray activity, in accordance with chemical uranium and some associated trace elements, were almost identical over the study area. The anomalously high values in all cases were basically found to be related to the main phosphatic outcrop and to the reprecipitation processes at their vicinity following the alteration of the phosphates. The prevailing topographic conditions of the drainage system has probably played a crucial role in carrying the uraniferous solutions from its phosphatic source down to the nearby sedimentary environment. This appears to be sufficient enough to produce an anomalous halo resulting in the detection of some relatively high radon and gamma values of about 7 and 15 times the background respectively, especially close to the main phosphate outcrop. A notable gradual decrease was then observed at the following sampling sites along the pathway west of Ain Laylon site approaching the background level at a distance of

    The integrated kindergarten and elementary school is a public educational facility used for early age and elementary education. Designated for children at 4-12 years of age, the design should meet the standards and requirements, while considering children’s needs in their development phase. This paper discusses the design of an integrated kindergarten and elementary school using the playful theme. Design was explored using LEGO and UNO-STACKO to create spaces that accommodate material exploration for children. The design takes the play concept as a medium of child’s learning in order to improve their ability and awareness of the surrounding environment. The design translates the playful theme into imaginary dimension, constructive-deconstructive shapes, and glide circulations concept. The spatial pattern is applied by considering children’s behavior in the designated ages to trigger their creativity improvement. The design is expected to serve as a model of an integrated kindergarten and elementary school architecture.

    Full Text Available La malattia di Lyme è la più diffusa malattia trasmessa da zecche in Italia. La provincia di Pesaro ed Urbino per le sue caratteristiche ecologiche può essere considerata area rischio per la patologia. Ciò nonostante, non sono ancora disponibili dati di campo per questa area, sebbene la malattia sia presente nei territori limitrofi. Al fine di indagare la presenza del ciclo della borreliosi di Lyme, è stato condotto, nell’area di interesse, uno studio di un anno durante il quale sono state raccolte zecche da cervidi selvatici, uomo e dall’ambiente, successivamente identificate e analizzate mediante PCR. Le zecche appartenenti alla specie Ixodes ricinus (la specie più frequente in tutte le raccolte sono state testate mediante tre diverse PCR per la ricerca di Borrelia burgdorferi s.l. Inoltre, per identificare le genospecie di Borrelia burgdorferi s.lcoinvolte, è stato amplificato e sequenziato un frammento della regione intergenica spaziatrice 5S-23S dell’ RNA ribosomiale. Il sequenziamento ha permesso di identificare due differenti genospecie: B. burgdorferi s.s. e B. lusitaniae, precedentemente coinvolte in casi umani di malattia di Lyme. Le informazioni riguardo le relazioni tra ospite, zecca e genospecie di B. burgdorferi s.l., confermando le notizie già presenti in letteratura per il bacino del Mediterraneo, mostrano come nell’area di interesse siano presenti le condizioni favorevoli allo sviluppo del ciclo della borreliosi di Lyme.

    Previously, increasing age has been a part of the exclusion criteria used when determining eligibility for a pancreas transplant. However, the analysis of pancreas transplantation outcomes based on age groupings has largely been based on single-center reports. A UNOS database review of all adult pancreas and kidney-pancreas transplants between 1996 and 2012 was performed. Patients were divided into groups based on age categories: 18-29 (n = 1823), 30-39 (n = 7624), 40-49 (n = 7967), 50-59 (n = 3160), and ≥60 (n = 280). We compared survival outcomes and demographic variables between each age grouping. Of the 20 854 pancreas transplants, 3440 of the recipients were 50 yr of age or above. Graft survival was consistently the greatest in adults 40-49 yr of age. Graft survival was least in adults age 18-29 at one-, three-, and five-yr intervals. At 10- and 15-yr intervals, graft survival was the poorest in adults >60 yr old. Patient survival and age were found to be inversely proportional; as the patient population's age increased, survival decreased. Pancreas transplants performed in patients of increasing age demonstrate decreased patient and graft survival when compared to pancreas transplants in patients age. © 2014 John Wiley & Sons A/S.

    Previous multivariate analysis performed between April 1, 1994, and December 31, 2000 from the Organ Procurement Transplant Network/United Network for Organ Sharing (OPTN/UNOS) database has shown that kidneys from black donors were associated with lower graft survival. We compared graft and patient survival of different kidney donor-to-recipient ethnic combinations to see if this result still holds on a recent cohort of US kidney transplants. We included 72,495 recipients of deceased and living donor kidney alone transplants from 2001 to 2005. A multivariate Cox regression method was used to analyze the effect of donor-recipient ethnicity on graft and patient survival within 5 years of transplant, and to adjust for the effect of other donor, recipient, and transplant characteristics. Results are presented as hazard ratios (HR) with the 95% confidence limit (CL) and P values. Adjusted HRs of donor-recipient patient survival were: white to white (1); and white to black (1.22; P = .001). Graft survival HRs were black to black (1.40; P recipients. The graft and patient survival rates for Asian and Latino/Hispanic recipients, however, were not affected by donor ethnicity. This analysis underscores the need for research to better understand the reasons for these disparities and how to improve the posttransplant graft survival rates of black kidney recipients.

    The present work reports a study to increase wear resistance of a ball passage floodgate (steel type T9) trough the application of a thick film (coating). This study have included a material and process selection, synthesis of the coating on steel plates as substrates and spherical device, assembling of the coated floodgate on the ball valves, and finally an evaluation of the valves in the process of a thermoelectric power station. Taking into account the different requirements, a TiAIN coating prepared by cathodic arc evaporation was finally retained. The crystal structure, morphology and chemical composition of the coating were evaluated by x-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy equipped with an energy dispersive spectrometer (SEM-EDS). Finally, mechanical properties such as hardness and Young modulus were determined by nano indentation. (Author)

    This study aims to assess the impact of water harvesting constructed hydraulic structures (big and small dams, terraces, seuils for recharge…) on the evolution of piezometric head of Ain El Beidha groundwater table. The measurements of depth of water table, taken at the end of rain season and at the end of irrigation season, in many piezometers and monitoring wells, for a long period of observation before and after implementation of all the hydraulic structures, were used with the cumulative rain to the highest water table to diagnostic the effect of natural recharge and constructed hydraulic structures. According to the analysis of curves illustrating the evolution of piezometric head and rainfall over time, it was shown that despite the fact that the same amount of rain fall on the total area in the limits of Ain El Beidha groundwater table, the piezometers respond differently. This is because there are many sources of recharge and many factors affecting the recharge. First of all, the aquifer is divided in four compartments (the calcareous formation of Djebel El Houyareb, the plio-quaternary formation, the Miocene formation: Baglia and Saouaf). All those respond differently to the recharge by their capacity of infiltration and their hydrodynamic characteristics. The recharge of the groundwater table was increased by the implementation of small soil and water conservation structures, artificial lakes, El Haouareb Dam, run off in the natural Oued bads and seuils for recharge installed in the bads of oueds. The different piezometric drown maps were used to determine the flow direction and hydraulic gradient in order to identify the recharge areas, while tracking maps for three equal piezometric heads 210 m 300 m and 370 m established over different years made it possible to assess the impact of hydraulic structures, namely the effect of SWC and Ben Zitoun Lake. To illustrate the impact of El Houareb dam on the groundwater, the piezometric maps and local values

    Background Low socioeconomic status (SES) is a known risk factor for heart failure, mortality among those with heart failure, and poor post heart transplant (HT) outcomes. This study sought to determine if SES is associated with decreased waitlist survival while on LVAD support and after HT. Methods and Results 3,361 adult patients bridged to primary HT with an LVAD between May 2004 and April 2014 were identified in the UNOS database. SES was measured using the AHRQ SES index using data from the 2014 American Community Survey. In the study cohort, SES did not have an association with the combined endpoint of death or delisting on LVAD support (p=0.30). In a cause-specific unadjusted model, those in the top (HR 1.55, 95% CI 1.14–2.11, p=0.005) and second greatest SES quartile (HR 1.50, 95% CI 1.10–2.04, p=0.01) had an increased risk of death on device support compared to the lowest SES quartile. Adjusting for clinical risk factors mitigated the increased risk. There was no association between SES and complications. Post-HT survival, both crude and adjusted, was decreased for patients in the lowest quartile of SES index compared to all other SES quartiles. Conclusions Freedom from waitlist death or delisting was not impacted by SES. Patients with a higher SES had an increased unadjusted risk of waitlist mortality during LVAD support, which was mitigated by adjusting for increased comorbid conditions. Low SES was associated with worse post-HT outcomes. Further study is needed to confirm and understand a differential effect of SES on post-transplant outcomes that was not seen during LVAD support prior to HT. PMID:27758810

    Full Text Available Prato rappresenta uno studio di come la crescita industriale nella produzione tessile possa influenzare la condizione architettonica. Negli anni del dopoguerra, i pratesi hanno sviluppato metodi di specializzazione in una rete di PMI familiari. L’industria tessile del territorio si è ristretta negli ultimi anni, alla fine soccombendo alle forze della produzione di massa. La stessa città ha visto un aumento degli immigranti cinesi, che trovano lavoro nella fiorente industria di indumenti “fast fashion”. Un rogo in una fabbrica nel dicembre del 2013 ha rivelato tensioni e la colpevolezza del grande pubblico. Ciò nonostante, il successo storico di Prato e le sue necessità urgenti richiedono un esame e un confronto. La disaggregazione fisica della fabbrica e della città dà indizi su ciò che si può salvare e rinnovare. / Prato is a study of industrial growth in textile production, coming to bear on an architectural condition. In the years after World War II, the Pratese developed methods of specialization in a network of small- to medium-sized family owned firms. The local textile industry has contracted in recent years, finally falling to the forces of mass production. The city itself has seen an increase in Chinese immigrants, who find work in the burgeoning ‘fast fashion’ garment industry. A factory fire in December 2013 exposed the tensions and culpability of the population at large. Yet Prato’s historical success and urgent needs beg for examination, and comparison. The physical disaggregation of factory and city give clues as to what can be retrieved, and made anew.

    Full Text Available Attraverso uno studio di caso che coinvolge due studentesse di italiano L2 di livello elementare/intermedio, si prendono in esame alcuni dei fattori che possono influire sull’utilizzo del feedback scritto da parte degli apprendenti. La raccolta dei dati si è svolta in tre giornate: nella prima le partecipanti hanno scritto un testo collaborativo a partire da una storia per immagini; nella seconda i testi, corretti con un intervento di feedback implicito, sono stati riconsegnati e la coppia ha prima analizzato le segnalazioni ricevute e poi riscritto il testo; nella terza le apprendenti hanno prodotto testi individuali a partire dallo stesso stimolo visivo. Oltre a confrontare le diverse stesure del testo, si analizzano le interazioni avvenute tra le apprendenti durante il lavoro di coppia finalizzato a utilizzare il feedback per produrre il secondo testo collaborativo. I risultati mostrano da un lato che un elevato livello di coinvolgimento nell’elaborazione del feedback non ne garantisce un utilizzo efficace, dall’altro che hanno un peso non trascurabile anche fattori più “personali” come le convinzioni sulla lingua bersaglio e l’atteggiamento nei confronti del lavoro di coppia.  A case study on the development and use of written feedback in Italian L2 learners  Through a case study involving two female elementary/intermediate Italian L2 students, we examine some of the factors that may affect the use of written feedback by the learners. Data collection took place over three days: on the first day, the participants wrote a collaborative text from a picture story; on the second the texts, corrected using implicit feedback, were returned, and the students first analyzed the reports received and then rewrote the text; on the third day the learners produced individual texts from the same visual stimulus. In addition to comparing the various drafts of the text, we analyzed the interactions between the learners during pair work aimed

    Obiettivi: alcune abitudini di vita possono influenzare lo sviluppo fetale durante il periodo di gravidanza. Lo scopo di questo studio è stato quello di indagare gli effetti di alcune abitudini voluttuarie sulle nascite premature e sul basso peso alla nascita.

    Metodi: è stato condotto uno studio caso controllo nel periodo ottobre 1999 settembre 2000 in 9 città italiane (Genova, Udine, Modena, Parma, Siena, Roma, L’Aquila, Napoli e Catania. Sono stati identificati come casi 525 neonati pretermine (26ma, 38ma settimana di gravidanza e 317 neonati a termine ma con peso ‹ al 10° P. Sono stati arruolati come controllo 871 bambini nati a termine e normopeso. Le informazioni relative all’esposizione al fumo attivo e passivo e al consumo di caffè e i dati personali sono stati raccolti attraverso un apposito questionario.

    Risultati: dai risultati dell’analisi univariata è emerso un maggior rischio di basso peso alla nascita nei bambini le cui madri avevano fumato durante l’ultimo trimestre di gravidanza, con un chiaro effetto dose risposta. (OR: 2.09, 95% CI:1.45 - 3.00 per 1 9 sigarette/giorno, e OR= 2.76, 95% CI: 1.67 - 4.45 per 10 ed oltre sigarette al giorno. Anche la nascita pretermine sembra influenzata dall’abitudine tabagica della madre anche se in modo meno evidente. OR: 1.47, 95% CI: 1.05 - 2.04 per 1 9 sigarette/giorno e un OR: 1,30 95% CI: 0.78 - 4.81 per 10 e più sigarette/giorno. Per quanto riguarda l’esposizione al fumo passivo (più di due fumatori nelle abitazioni è stata osservata una positiva associazione con il basso peso alla nascita (OR: 3.05, 95% CI: 1.19 - 7.79.

    Obiettivi: valutare le frequenze dei principali geni metabolici in un campione di casi di GC (Carcinoma Gastrico e di controlli, per determinare se esiste un’associazione con il rischio di GC, e considerare le possibili associazioni tra i genotipi studiati ed alcuni parametri clinico-patologici.

    Metodi: è stato condotto uno studio caso-controllo ospedaliero, tra novembre 1999 e maggio 2003 reclutando 48 pazienti con diagnosi di adenocarcinoma gastrico sottoposti a gastrectomia, e 48 controlli appaiati per sesso ed età presso il Policlinico Universitario “A. Gemelli” in Roma. Per genotipizzare gli individui rispetto ai geni GSTM1, NAT2, SULT1A1, CYP1A1, CYP2E1 (5’ flanking e introne 6, è stata usata la tecnica della PCR con analisi del profilo dei frammenti di restrizione (PCR-RFLP. L’analisi statistica ha previsto l’impiego di test non parametrici e della regressione logistica.

    Risultati: le frequenze dei polimorfismi nei geni metabolici sono risultate in alcuni casi differenti nei casi rispetto ai controlli sebbene non si evidenzi una differenza statisticamente significativa. In particolare il genotipo GSMT1 null è più elevato nei pazienti rispetto ai controlli (63.8% vs. 51% e gli individui NAT2 acetilatori lenti risultano più frequenti nei casi rispetto ai controlli (69.6% vs. 57.45%. L’istotipo diffuso di GC è associato significativamente ai pazienti eterozigoti per l’allele SULT1A1 (c_= 8.216; p= 0.018, ed i pazienti NAT2 acetilatori lenti tendono ad avere un grading tumorale alto (c_= 7.425; p= 0.006.

    Conclusioni: i risultati preliminari di questo studio evidenziano associazioni tra alcuni genotipi metabolici e parametri clinico-patologici, che se confermati potrebbero permettere di identificare sottogruppi con prognosi più sfavorevole di GC da indirizzare preventivamente verso trattamenti specifici.

The annual savings are estimated at 237,000 € with the H 1 hypothesis. In the case of H 2 , the expected savings would be 376,200 € per year. In the case of H 3 , savings for the community could reach almost 1,282,800 € per year. The arrival of biosimilars allows significant savings for medicines market. According to the French recommendations in 2016, the expected savings are between the H 1 and H 2 hypothesis. The rate of penetration of biosimilars depends on many factors such as the involvement of health professionals, patient adherence, or health authority recommendations.

    Full Text Available The objective of the present study was to investigate the relationship between time management, perceived stress, gender and academic achievement among United Arab Emirates college students. The respondents were 352 college students from Al Ain University of Science and Technology. The sample was stratified by sex. Among the respondents, 52.5% were female students and 47.5% were male students. The mean age of the sample was 23.4 years ranging from 18 to 39. Time management was measured by Time Management Questionnaire” developed by Britton and Tesser (1991, while perceived stress was measured by The Perceived Stress Scale developed by Cohen (1985. The findings of the study showed that there was statistically significant negative relationship between time management and perceived stress. Females reported higher time management compared to their males counter mates. Higher time management and lower perceived stress were associated with high levels of academic achievement. However, time management was the most significant predictor of academic achievement accounting for 26 % of the variance while perceived stress accounted for an additional 11.2% of the variance in academic achievement. All three predictors explained 29.4% (R = .543 of total variance. The implications and limitations are reviewed as are the suggestions for future research.   Keywords: Time management, perceived stress, academic achievement, college students.

    A buffer memory unit and an interface for the UNO-4096-90 accumulator with an Elektronika D3-28 microcomputer are described that allow simultaneous recording of four Moessbauer spectra with zero dead time. For complete elimination of dead time, the pulses from each detector are fed to two buffer counters units, which operate alternately in the write and interrogate modes. This organization of the buffer memory also completely eliminates the effect of the sensors on one another. The use of these circuits does not require any modifications of the computer or accumulator

    human settlements and occupation, it is possible to characterize a threefold transition: first, the former transition between the pre-Islamic prehistoric societies and the development of Muslim societies; second, the more recent transition between the traditional historical society (farmers) and the contemporary society, characterized by the growth of urbanization, the creation of modern transport infrastructure and the concomitant growth of tourist flows; third, the current transition between the yesterday and tomorrow Al Ain City, due to the transformation of a local town centred on national economics all along the second half of the twentieth century, into an international town more open to the wider world with the management of a possible increased 20 % of tourist flow because of the inscription of Cultural Sites of Al Ain on the UNESCO's World Heritage List. It is not possible to completely ignore the fact that the Jebel Hafit and its foothills are partly crossed by an international boundary. In case of political tensions, this may cause some difficulties for the management of this territory, with contradictory requirements between security, tourism, traditional land use, and scientific research.

    Introduction Pediatric poisonings represent a major and preventable cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Epidemiologic information about poisoning among children in many lower- and middle-income countries is scarce. This study describes the epidemiology of acute poisonings in children presenting to Ain Shams University's Poisoning Treatment Center (ASU-PTC) in Cairo and determines the causative agents and characteristics of acute poisoning in several pediatric age groups. Methods This retrospective study involved acutely poisoned patients, 0 to 18 years of age, who presented to the ASU-PTC between 1/1/2009 and 12/31/2013. Data were extracted from electronic records maintained by the ASU-PTC. Collected data included demographics, substance of exposure, circumstances of the poisoning, patient disposition, and outcome. Results During the 5-year study period, 38,470 patients meeting our criteria were treated by the ASU-PTC; 19,987 (52%) were younger than 6 years of age; 4,196 (11%) were 6 to 12 years; and 14,287 (37%) were >12 years. Unintentional poisoning accounted for 68.5% of the ingestions, though among adolescents 84.1% of ingestions were with self-harm intent. In all age groups, the most frequent causative drugs were non-opioid analgesics, antipyretics, and antirheumatics. The most common nonpharmaceutical agents were corrosives in preschool children and pesticides in adolescents. Most patients had no/minor effects (29,174 [75.8%]); hospitalization rates were highest among adolescents. There were 119 deaths (case fatality rate of 0.3), primarily from pesticide ingestion. Conclusion Poisoning in preschool children is mainly unintentional and commonly due to nonpharmaceutical agents while poisoning in adolescents is mainly intentional (self-harm). Pesticides, mainly organophosphorous compounds and carbamates, were the most frequent agent leading to morbidity and mortality. PMID:26653953

    Full Text Available Sensitive and specific detection of malarial parasites is crucial in controlling the significant malaria burden in the developing world. Also important is being able to identify life threatening Plasmodium falciparum malaria quickly and accurately to reduce malaria related mortality. Existing methods such as microscopy and rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs have major shortcomings. Here, we describe a new real-time PCR-based diagnostic test device at point-of-care service for resource-limited settings.Truenat® Malaria, a chip-based microPCR test, was developed by bigtec Labs, Bangalore, India, for differential identification of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax parasites. The Truenat Malaria tests runs on bigtec's Truelab Uno® microPCR device, a handheld, battery operated, and easy-to-use real-time microPCR device. The performance of Truenat® Malaria was evaluated versus the WHO nested PCR protocol. The Truenat® Malaria was further evaluated in a triple-blinded study design using a sample panel of 281 specimens created from the clinical samples characterized by expert microscopy and a rapid diagnostic test kit by the National Institute of Malaria Research (NIMR. A comparative evaluation was done on the Truelab Uno® and a commercial real-time PCR system.The limit of detection of the Truenat Malaria assay was found to be <5 parasites/μl for both P. falciparum and P. vivax. The Truenat® Malaria test was found to have sensitivity and specificity of 100% each, compared to the WHO nested PCR protocol based on the evaluation of 100 samples. The sensitivity using expert microscopy as the reference standard was determined to be around 99.3% (95% CI: 95.5-99.9 at the species level. Mixed infections were identified more accurately by Truenat Malaria (32 samples identified as mixed versus expert microscopy and RDTs which detected 4 and 5 mixed samples, respectively.The Truenat® Malaria microPCR test is a valuable diagnostic tool and

    Full Text Available This article positions the translations of French verse works (plays and selected collections of individual poets that August Sang, Jaan Kross and Ain Kaalep made in the 1960s, onto the background of their own original works. At that time, August Sang translated four plays by Molière (The Misanthrope, Tartuffe, The School for Wives in 1961; Amphitryon in 1961, which have already been discussed in relation to the tradition of translating the French syllabic verse into Estonian, because these translations form a considerable part of the body of Estonian translations of French verse poetry. For Jaan Kross and Ain Kaalep, the wider context is created by the so-called free verse battles in the 1950s, to which we can link Kross’ translation of a selected collection of Éluard (Veel enne kostma peab, 1969 and Kaalep’s translation of a selected collection of Prévert (Kuidas portreteerida lindu, 1965. One of the two remaining translations by Kross, (Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, 1964, can also be examined in relation to the problems of translating verse, but the other, (Béranger’s Laulud, 1963, should be discussed in the framework of intellectual and cultural resistance, a part of which was also the struggle put up for the existence of free verse in the 1950s and 1960s. Of August Sang’s original work, the article examines his collection of poems Võileib suudlusega (1963, written simultaneously with his translations of Molière’s plays and published right after them. Both the translations and the collection of original poems have attracted critics’ attention with their remarkable lack of linguistic constraint and simplicity. Although Sang has rarely voiced theoretical ideas about translation or explained his method, both his poetic image, outlined in the collection Võileib suudlusega, and his search for right words, reflected in the drafts of his translations, let us believe that the simplicity of expression and the avoidance of marked

    We analyzed the UNOS database to better define the risk of transmission of central nervous system (CNS) tumors from donors to adult recipients of thoracic organs. Data were procured from the Standard Transplant Analysis and Research dataset files. Donors with CNS tumors were identified, and recipients from these donors comprised the study group (Group I). The remaining recipients of organs from donors who did not have CNS tumors formed the control group (Group II). Incidence of recipient CNS tumors, donor-related malignancies, and overall survival were calculated and compared in addition to multivariable logistic regression. A cohort of 58 314 adult thoracic organ recipients were included, of which 337 received organs from donors who had documented CNS tumors (Group I). None of these recipients developed CNS tumors at a median follow-up of 72 months (IR: 30-130 months). Although overall mortality in terms of the percentage was higher in Group I than Group II (163/320=51% vs 22 123/52 691=42%), Kaplan-Meier curves indicate no significant difference in the time to death between the two groups (P=.92). There is little risk of transmission of the common nonaggressive CNS tumors to recipients of thoracic organs. © 2017 John Wiley & Sons A/S. Published by John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

    Razionale dello studio proposto In contesti come le Residenze Sanitarie Assistenziali (RSA, le Residenze Protette (RP, l’Assistenza Domiciliare Integrata (ADI la letteratura e le prime esperirne italiane evidenziano come il problema ICPA sia importante e, pur variando le tipologie di infezione prevalenti, i costi individuali, sociali ed economici ad esse collegati rimangono molto elevati.

    In questo scenario diventa importante che i Comitati per il Controllo delle Infezioni Ospedaliere (CIO aziendali affrontino il problema del controllo delle infezioni in ambito extraospedaliero e comincino a strutturare modelli organizzativi in grado di operare efficacemente. Il dimensionamento del problema, ovvero l’attività di sorveglianza epidemiologica, anche in questo caso è tra le prime attività necessarie di provata efficacia.

    Obiettivo dello studio: una prima valutazione della dimensione del problema ICPA nelle strutture RSA presenti nelle diverse regioni italiane attraverso uno studio di prevalenza nazionale. Materiali e metodi: l progetto prevede una prima fase con l’individuazione dei centri partecipanti e dei rispettivi referenti medici ed infermieristici. Successivamente si procederà, utilizzando la metodologia già testata in uno studio pilota, alla formazione del personale sull’uso degli strumenti. Saranno arruolati tutti i pazienti degenti da oltre 48 ore nelle RSA partecipanti, escludendo quelli in dimissione o in trasferimento nel giorno di rilevazione. I rilevatori, esterni alla struttura, raccoglieranno i dati consultando il quaderno infermieristico, il quaderno terapia, il diario clinico, la cartella clinica ed esaminando ciascun paziente per validare la eventuale presenza di “devices” e confermare sintomi e segni rientranti nelle definizioni di caso. Laddove necessario verrà consultato il personale medico ed infermieristico della struttura. Le variabili raccolte saranno centrate su dati

    , principalmente gamma y de un mismo radioisotopo, cuando difieren en una relacion del orden de uno a miL La utilidad inmediata de este dispositivo es la elaboracion de patrones gamma para la calibracion de camaras de ionizacion que requieren actividades del orden de milicuries de radioisotopos, como el {sup 60}Co o el {sup 131}I, a partir de patrones respectivos con actividades del orden del microcurie. El principio en que se basan los dispositivos construidos es restringir el paso de la luz emitida por el cristal de centelleo al tubo fotomultiplicador. En el primer dispositivo se enmascaro la mitad de la cara del cristal de centelleo, Nal (TI), y la mitad de la cara del foto-multiplicador de tal forma que haciendo girar el cristal se sobreponen las mascaras y se restringe la luz desde 50% hasta 0%. Con este dispositivo se ha conseguido en la practica comparar actividades de uno a veinte. En el segundo dispositivo se han dispuesto cinco diafragmas en un disco rotatorio que permiten el paso desde 100% de luz hasta 1%. Usando este dispositivo es posible comparar fuentes que difieren hasta mil veces en actividad, manteniendo dentro de 100 000 cuentas/min la lectura del escalador. Este procedimiento resulta ventajoso principalmente porque disminuye el error debido a diferencias del tiempo muerto instrumental para los recuentos realizados con fuentes de muy diferente actividad y permite, ademas, comparar estas muestras usando un blindaje de dimensiones reducidas.

    Low socioeconomic status (SES) is a known risk factor for heart failure, mortality among those with heart failure, and poor post heart transplant (HT) outcomes. This study sought to determine whether SES is associated with decreased waitlist survival while on left ventricular assist device (LVADs) support and after HT. A total of 3361 adult patients bridged to primary HT with an LVAD between May 2004 and April 2014 were identified in the UNOS database (United Network for Organ Sharing). SES was measured using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality SES index using data from the 2014 American Community Survey. In the study cohort, SES did not have an association with the combined end point of death or delisting on LVAD support (P=0.30). In a cause-specific unadjusted model, those in the top (hazard ratio, 1.55; 95% confidence interval, 1.14-2.11; P=0.005) and second greatest SES quartile (hazard ratio 1.50; 95% confidence interval, 1.10-2.04; P=0.01) had an increased risk of death on device support compared with the lowest SES quartile. Adjusting for clinical risk factors mitigated the increased risk. There was no association between SES and complications. Post-HT survival, both crude and adjusted, was decreased for patients in the lowest quartile of SES index compared with all other SES quartiles. Freedom from waitlist death or delisting was not affected by SES. Patients with a higher SES had an increased unadjusted risk of waitlist mortality during LVAD support, which was mitigated by adjusting for increased comorbid conditions. Low SES was associated with worse post-HT outcomes. Further study is needed to confirm and understand a differential effect of SES on post-transplant outcomes that was not seen during LVAD support before HT. © 2016 American Heart Association, Inc.

    Placement of left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) as a bridge-to-heart transplantation (HTx) has rapidly expanded due to organ donor shortage. However, the timing of LVAD implantation is variable and it remains unclear if earlier implantation improves survival. We analyzed 14,187 adult candidates from the United Network of Organ Sharing database. Patients were classified by 3 treatment strategies including patients medically treated alone (MED, n=11,009), patients on LVAD support at listing (Early-LVAD, n=1588) and patients undergoing LVAD placement while awaiting HTx (Delayed-LVAD, n=1590). Likelihood of HTx and event-free survival were assessed in patients subcategorized by clinical strategies and UNOS status at listing. The device support strategy, despite the timing of placement, was not associated with increased likelihood of HTx compared to MED group. However, both LVAD implantation strategies showed better survival compared to MED group (Early-LVAD: HR 0.811 and 0.633, 95% CI 0.668-0.984 and 0.507-0.789, for 1A and 1B; p=0.034 and p<0.001, Delayed-LVAD: HR 0.553 and 0.696, 95% CI 0.415-0.736 and 0.571-0.847, for 1A and 1B; both p<0.001, respectively). Furthermore, there was no significant difference in survival between these LVAD implantation strategies in patients listed as 1B (p=0.500), although Early-LVAD implantation showed worse survival in patients listed as 1A (HR 1.467, 95% CI 1.076-2.000; p=0.015). LVAD support strategies offer a safe bridge-to-HTx. Those candidates who receive urgent upfront LVAD implantation for HTx, and improve to 1B status, would achieve competitive survival with those who receive elective LVAD implantation.

    Full Text Available Chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV infection is a leading cause for orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT in the U.S. We investigated characteristics of HCV-infected patients registered for OLT, and explored factors associated with mortality. Data were obtained from the United Network for Organ Sharing and Organ Procurement and Transplantation network (UNOS/OPTN registry. Analyses included 41,157 HCV-mono-infected patients ≥18 years of age listed for cadaveric OLT between February 2002 and June 2014. Characteristics associated with pre- and post-transplant survival and time trends over the study period were determined by logistic and Cox proportional hazard regression analyses and Poisson regressions. Most patients were white (69.1% and male (70.8%. At waitlist registration, mean age was 54.6 years and mean MELD was 16. HCC was recorded in 26.9% of the records. A total of 51.2% of the patients received an OLT, 21.0% died or were too sick; 15.6% were delisted and 10.4% were still waiting. Factors associated with increased waitlist mortality were older age, female gender, blood type 0, diabetes, no HCC and transplant region (p<0.001. OLT recipient characteristics associated with increased risk for post OLT mortality were female gender, age, diabetes, race (p<0,0001, and allocation MELD (p = 0.005. Donor characteristics associated with waitlist mortality included age, ethnicity (p<0.0001 and diabetes (p<0.03. Waitlist registrations and OLTs for HCC significantly increased from 14.4% to 37.3% and 27.8% to 38.5%, respectively (p<0.0001. Pre- and post-transplant survival depended on a variety of patient-, donor-, and allocation- characteristics of which most remain relevant in the DAA-era. Still, intensified HCV screening strategies and timely and effective treatment of HCV are highly relevant to reduce the burden of HCV-related OLTs in the U.S.

    Introduzione: poichè nel 1985 l’O.M.S. collocò l’eradicazione della carie infantile fra gli obiettivi epidemiologici da raggiungere nella regione europea entro l’anno 2000, è stato effettuato uno screening microbiologico finalizzato all’isolamento di germi cariogeni nel cavo orale dei bambini.

    Materiali e metodi: secondo le procedure correnti, sono stati eseguiti tamponi gengivo-coronali in 476 bambini delle scuole elementari e medie inferiori di Ferrara, cui è stato somministrato anche un questionario, mirato a conoscere il loro grado di informazione sull’igiene orale. Risultati: nel periodo Gennaio-Aprile 2000, sono stati esaminati 476 bambini suddivisi per sesso ed età [6-8 anni: 67 maschi, 98 femmine; 9-11: 53 maschi, 81 femmine; 12-14: 99 maschi, 78 femmine]. Sono stati isolati 119 ceppi di Rothia dentocariosa, con una preponderanza fra i maschi di 12-14 anni (n. 86; 86,8%. Dai questionari (476 consegnati; 399 compilati si evince che l’86,4% ritiene importante l’igiene orale, ma solo il 51,8% si lava i denti dopo ogni pasto ed appena il 22,3% esegue un controllo periodico dal dentista. Rothia dentocariosa è stata isolata nel 56,5% di coloro che si lavano i denti una volta al giorno e nel 75,9% di quelli che non li lavano.

    Conclusioni: considerando che Rothia dentocariosa non risulta essere un normale saprofita del cavo orale ma è probabilmente un germe opportunista in grado di promuovere attivamente le lesioni della carie iniziale, il suo isolamento può essere considerato un indice precoce di lesione cariogena in progressione. Ne deriva che, nonostante i notevoli progressi compiuti negli ultimi anni, paragonabili a quelli di nazioni ad alto tenore sociosanitario, l’obiettivo dell’eradicazione totale della carie dalla popolazione infantile ferrarese non è stato ancora raggiunto. Ciò principalmente a causa di un difetto di formazione culturale sia

    Phytotherapy of BPS has a long tradition in Germany; nevertheless, data referring to single phytotherapeutic agents are rare. We therefore performed a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled multicenter study for 1 year with Bazoton uno (459 mg dry extract of stinging nettle roots) with 246 patients. The IPSS decreased on average from 18.7+/-0.3 to 13.0+/-0.5 with a statistically significant difference compared to placebo (18.5+/-0.3 to 13.8+/-0.5; p=0.0233). The median Q(max) increased by 3.0+/-0.4 ml/s in comparison to 2.9+/-0.4 ml/s (placebo), thus not statistically significantly different, as well as the median volume of residual urine, which changed from 35.5+/-3.4 ml before therapy to 20.0+/-2.8 ml and from 40.0+/-4.0 ml to 21.0+/-2.9 ml under placebo application. The number of adverse events (29/38) as well as urinary infections etc. (3/10 events) was smaller under Bazoton uno therapy compared to placebo. Treatment with Bazoton uno can therefore be considered a safe therapeutic option for BPS, especially for reducing irritative symptoms and BPS-associated complications due to the postulated antiphlogistic and antiproliferative effects of the stinging nettle extract. A strong increase of Q(max) or reduction of residual urine are not to be expected.

    A bacterial strain E21 was isolated from a sample of water collected in the salt lake located close to Ain Salah, Algeria. The analysis of 16S rRNA gene sequence had indicated that the strain had 93 % sequence similarity with the genus Natrialba sp. strain E21 (GenBank, FR750525.1) and was considered extremely halophilic. Production of biosurfactant by the strain E21 with free and entrapped cells was investigated using soluble starch in the saline conditions. Biosurfactant synthesis was followed by measuring the surface tension and emulsifying index 9 days under optimal conditions (40 °C, pH 7). Some diffusional limitations in alginate and agar beads affected the kinetics of biosurfactant production when compared to that obtained with free cells culture. The minimum values of surface tension were 27 and 30 mN m(-1) achieved after 9 days with free and immobilized cells, respectively, while the corresponding maximum E24 values were 65.3 and 62.3 %, respectively. The re-use of bacterial cells along with the limited cell losses provided by the immobilized system might lead to significant reduction of the biosurfactant production cost.

Une analyse des dynamiques agricoles locales et des tendances nationales a servi de support aux discussions.

    A sophisticated nonlinear multiparameter fitting program was used to produce a best fit calibration curve for the response of an x-ray fluorescence analyzer to uranium nitrate, freeze dried, 0.2% accurate, gravimetric standards. The program is based on unconstrained minimization subroutine, VA02A. The program considers the mass values of the gravimetric standards as parameters to be fit along with the normal calibration curve parameters. The fitting procedure weights with the system errors and the mass errors in a consistent way. The resulting best fit calibration curve parameters reflect the fact that the masses of the standard samples are measured quantities with a known error. Error estimates for the calibration curve parameters can be obtained from the curvature of the ''Chi-Squared Matrix'' or from error relaxation techniques. It was shown that nondispersive XRFA of 0.1 to 1 mg freeze-dried UNO 3 can have an accuracy of 0.2% in 1000 s

    Organ transplantation has evolved into the standard of care for patients with end-stage organ failure. Despite considering increasingly complex transplant recipients for organs recovered from donors with increasing comorbid conditions, 1-year patient survival following kidney transplantation is 97% in the United States, whereas liver transplant recipient 1-year survival is 90%. There were 16,485 kidney recipients in the United States in 2012, and 6256 patients who underwent liver transplantation.

    Full Text Available En la Italia de post-guerra el rechazo al nacionalismo y a la aspiración a una política de cooperación internacional tanto a nivel europeo como mundial eran ampliamente compartidas. En la Conferencia de Potsdam Truman propuso la admisión de Italia en el seno de la ONU, pero se encontró con la oposición de la URSS. En el contexto de la Guerra Fría, Italia solo pudo entrar en 1955, junto con otros 15 países. En la ONU, la participación de Italia, por ejemplo en asuntos relativos a la descolonización, se veía condicionada por sus lazos con los EEUU, por su pertenencia al bloque Occidental y por sus intereses económicos. Italia reconoció a la China comunista solo en 1970 y en 1971 votó a favor de su admisión en la ONU. En 1969 el primer ministro Moro describió en la Asamblea General de la ONU su “estrategia para una paz global”, un manifiesto de distensión basado en la ONU y en la igualdad de los estados y no en un “concierto de potencias”. Tales ideas contrastaban con la distensión llevada a cabo por Nixon y Kissinger, basada más bien en una política tradicional de poder y en las relaciones bilaterales entre las superpotencias. En los años 70 el estatus internacional de Italia se veía seriamente limitado por su crisis interna. En el último periodo de la Guerra Fría, las Fuerzas Armadas italianas empezaron a participar en misiones en el extranjero con o sin mandato de la ONU Tales misiones tenían como objetivo dar apoyo a la seguridad internacional y reforzar el estatus internacional de Italia dentro y fuera de la ONU. Italia se opuso con éxito a los planes para incrementar el número de miembros permanentes del Consejo de Seguridad proponiendo a cambio una nueva categoría de miembros semi-permanentes.

    Full Text Available Nell’autunno del 1973 Pier Paolo Pasolini viene invitato a partecipare ad una rubrica televisiva intitolata Io e …, nella quale intellettuali, poeti, registi, musicisti, scrittori sono chiamati a scegliere e a parlare di un’opera d’arte a cui tengono in modo particolare. Dopo un crescendo di ripensamenti intorno al tema da trattare (una pietra, un muretto, una fontana Pasolini sceglie infine di concentrare la sua attenzione sulla forma della città, a partire da due luoghi tanto a lui familiari quanto tra loro radicalmente diversi: la medievale Orte, la fascista Sabaudia. Il risultato della sua partecipazione alla trasmissione è una sorta di ‘scritto corsaro’ per immagini, Pasolini e… la forma della città1, un documento importante e complesso per comprendere la “sostanza di Pasolini” [Contini, 1988] in quel momento particolare della sua vita che sono i primi anni Settanta.

Materiales y métodos: Se incluyeron en el estudio 40 mujeres premenopáusicas del Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza; se les realizó una medición de estradiol antes de la histerectomía y la otra medición luego de un tiempo equivalente a tres ciclos menstruales después de la cirugía. Además se les realizó una encuesta de síntomas climatéricos en ambas oportunidades. Resultados: No hubo diferencia significativa entre los niveles de estradiol antes y después de la histerectomía. La comparación de estas medias respecto al tipo de histerectomía, número de ovarios conservados y al diagnóstico preoperatorio, no alcanzó valores estadísticamente significativos. No hubo diferencia estadísticamente significativa entre los síntomas climatéricos antes y después de la cirugía. Conclusiones: El tipo de histerectomía, el número de ovarios conservados y el diagnóstico preoperatorio no alterarían los niveles de estradiol luego de un tiempo equivalente a tres ciclos menstruales ni favorecerían la aparición de síntomas climatéricos.(Rev Med Hered 2009;20:185-190.

    EDUARDO ASSALONE

    2014-06-01

    Full Text Available En el presente trabajo se aborda la crítica a la doctrina hegeliana de la mediación (Vermittlung que Kierkegaard desarrolla en el segundo volumen de Enten-Eller (O lo uno o lo otro. El trabajo comienza con un análisis del tipo de oposición que Kierkegaard no está dispuesto a relativizar por vía del recurso a la mediación dialéctica. Para ello se aplican los aportes realizados por Shannon Nason para la comprensión de los opuestos relativos en Hegel y en Kierkegaard. Luego se señala el lugar que le confiere este último filósofo al concepto de mediación en su posición propia, a saber, dentro de la “esfera del pensamiento”. Posteriormente se aborda la crítica de Theodor W. Adorno al intento kierkegaardiano de desarrollar una “dialéctica sin mediación”. En el último apartado se evalúa, en conjunto, la crítica y limitación del concepto de mediación realizadas por Kierkegaard, así como las objeciones elevadas por Adorno contra las mismas. Asimismo, se presentan algunas reflexiones sobre la crítica de la mediación por parte de Kierkegaard y del joven Marx como expresión de una crítica social que permanece implícita en el primero y se muestra explícitamente en el segundo.

    Full Text Available La doble salida del ventrículo izquierdo es muy poco frecuente, en la cual la aorta y la arteria pulmonar, emergen completa o predominantemente del ventrículo izquierdo. Cuando se acompañan de comunicación interventricular y de estenosis pulmonar la corrección se realiza usualmente con interposición de un conducto entre el ventrículo derecho y la arteria pulmonar. El objetivo del presente trabajo es presentar un caso tratado con cirugía de tipo uno y medio ventricular, pues, hasta donde conocemos, esta técnica no ha sido empleada en esta enfermedad para evitar el uso de conductos protésicos. Se reporta en una niña de 3 años de edad, a quien se le cerró la comunicación interventricular, se desconectó la arteria pulmonar del ventrículo izquierdo y se anastomosó al nuevo tracto de salida del ventrículo derecho, y se realizó derivación cavopulmonar parcial. Después de 6 años de seguimiento presenta buena evolución clínica, ecocardiográfica y capacidad funcional adecuada.The double outlet of the left ventricle is uncommon, where the aorta and the pulmonary artery emerge total or predominantly from the left ventricle. When they are accompanied of an interventricular communication and of pulmonary stenosis, the correction is usually carried out with the insertion of a conduct between the right ventricle and the pulmonary artery. The objective of present paper is to present a case treated with one half ventricular surgery type and ventricular medium, since until is known, this technique has not used in this disease to avoid the use of prosthetic conducts. Authors reports the case of a girl aged 3 undergoes the closure of the interventricular communication, switching off the pulmonary artery of the left ventricle and anastomosing it to the new outlet tract of right ventricle, carrying out a partial cavopulmonary bypass. After 6 years of follow-up she has a good clinical and echocardiographic evolution as well as a appropriate

    Full Text Available Los ingenieros requieren de creatividad e ingenio para encontrar soluciones eficaces, eficientes y costo efectivas a los problemas que afectan a la humanidad. El trabajo interdisciplinario o colaborativo ha sido una forma exitosa para ofrecer soluciones factibles. En el caso de encontra soluciones al aumento de la resistencia de los microbios a los antibióticos, el enfoque colaborativo está mostrando buenos resultados. La resistencia a los antibióticos y a los antimicrobianos en general, es un problema (http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/antibiotic-resistance/es/ [1] con múltiples causas. De otro lado, las soluciones también pueden ser múltiples. La ingeniería y las ciencias de la salud se complementan para crear la sinergia necesaria para proponer unas de estas soluciones. En el laboratorio de investigación del Dr. Julián Davies en el Departamento de Microbiología e Inmunología de la Universidad de British Columbia en Vancouver, Canadá  se ha puesto en práctica este enfoque para atacar la resistencia a los antibióticos desde los aspectos de la prevención de la propagación de la resistencia y de la búsqueda de nuevos agentes antimicrobianos. En el caso de prevención, los departamentos de Ingeniería Civil y Mecánica junto con Microbiología han investigado el proceso de tratamiento de aguas residuales como un foco de concentración y distribución de bacterias resistentes a antibióticos. Como resultado, se han propuestos cambios operacionales en las plantas de tratamiento de agua como por ejemplo, respecto al duración de retención de lodos. En el caso de nuevos agentes, el departamento de Microbiología ha estudiado las arcillas medicinales como agentes antimicrobianos [2]. Sin embargo, para poder obtener y analizar este tipo de arcillas, se requiere la participación de los departamentos de Ingeniería Minera y Civil para estudiar depósitos, buscar formas para extracción del material, así como para realizar estudios físicos y químicos de arcillas. Además, los recursos Bioinformáticos hacen posible analizar las comunidades bacterianas presentes en el ambiente y su relación con los componentes del depósito y sus propiedades medicinales [3]. Ingeniería, informática y microbiología se juntan para proponer solución al problema. Ahora podemos preguntarnos cómo desarrollar una visión interdisciplinaria durante el proceso formativo que pueda transferirse más tarde al ejercicio profesional. Se pueden destacar por lo menos tres aspectos importantes. Primero, desarrollar un deseo por ampliar nuestro entendimiento de los problemas que más afectan nuestro entorno y meditar en sus causas y plantearnos alternativas de soluciones. Segundo,  esforzarnos por estar actualizados en los avances y nuevos desarrollos en nuestra área de interés, muchas veces implica tener una rutina de lectura regular de artículos tecnológicos y científicos, y de asistencia a seminarios o charlas. Por último, proponer y participar en proyectos de investigación que involucren la colaboración con otros departamentos dentro de la universidad, aprendiendo y participando activamente en la creación de soluciones. El factor común entre estos aspectos es nuestro interés por ser hacedores, innovadores y líderes de la búsqueda de alternativas para dar soluciones a los problemas del mundo en que vivimos y como se ha visto, ¡es posible!

Generally, only the biochemical composition (percentages of moisture, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates and the (digestible and crude energies of the food are previously known, which is insufficient for the choice of the food in terms of growth performance and quality/environment. The rainbow trout breeding tanks used for this test are 222 days (15 June 2015 - 28 February 2016 are fed with water directly taken from the water of the Oum Er-Rbia sources according to an open circuit with a Renewal of water every half hour. The flow rate is 11.04m3/h. The initial breeding conditions, the density (Kg per volume 1.58kg/m3 and the initial charge with respect to the flow rate is 1.05 m3 / h. Fish are fed by ratios two to three times per day depending on the rearing stage. The frequency of sampling is biweekly where we measured the zootechnical performances of the fish and taken water samples for physicochemical analyzes in order to assess the quality of the waters of exit of the basins before their rejection in the Oum-Er-Rbia river. The results show that the test food shows a better growth of the rainbow trout and a conversion index not exceeding 0.9 for a size of 1043 g of trout.

We can see in Bruno a pivotal component in the positive determination of the idea of immanence: the understanding that there’s no radical out-of-nature. He doe s also criticizes Scotus and his figure of univocity related to a neutral concept that engenders a new image of univocity. We may interpret Bruno as the philosopher that considers the One from the point of view of Nature. Nature is the infinite One, and there’s nothing outside her. This is the figure of immanence developed in the article.

    Full Text Available Smart energy meter (SEM is developed to the transparency goal of energy consumption by consumers for tariff strategy. The tariff strategy is designed based on the type of consumer load that per-kWh energy price difference for linear and nonlinear loads. Energy conscious awareness is built by displaying all load power consumption information from consumer loads such as voltage, current, power factor, load properties, load type, power, volt-ampere distortion, power factor distortion, THD, current and voltage waveforms, and harmonic frequency spectrum. The SEM is designed using ZMCT103C and ZMPT101B for current and voltage sensors, respectively. The SEM security function uses the SW420 vibrating sensor, open/close bolt sensor on the chasing and electronic lock. The results show that error measurement of the voltage sensor, current sensor, and power factor are 0.8%, 1.5%, and 1.0% respectively. The SEM security works well as the information on maintenance and criminal actions are informed on screen and buzzer sound for criminal acts. The tariff strategy for linear and nonlinear loads is used to calculate the energy cost per-kWh. The details of load energy consumption are stored in a database.

    1992-01-01

    This paper outlines the chief design and performance features of a forage drying installation which makes use of locally available geothermal energy. The heat exchange is accomplished through a water-air exchanger directly fed by 59 degrees C geothermal springs. Two 80,000 cubic meter/hour ventilators, making use of this energy (58 to 38 degrees C heat exchange), raise the drying air temperature by 16 degrees C, while providing an overall drying capacity of 43,200 kg/day. The balance of available 38 degrees C geothermal energy is being employed by a local aquaculture farm. The paper comments on the economic and environmental benefits being derived from this direct utilization of geothermal energy

Rethinking the gendered processes of welfare in a post-industrial, knowledge......-based society calls for adding two new dimensions: doing, which refers to the relation between paid and unpaid work,and deciding, which refers to the ability to have a say in your own life and influence political decisions.

    Peptic ulcer etiology has been changing because of H. pylori decline. To estimate peptic ulcer prevalence in 10 years-interval and compare the association with H. pylori and use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Methods Records assessment in two periods: A (1997-2000) and B (2007-2010), searching for peptic ulcer, H. pylori infection and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs use. Peptic ulcer occurred in 30.35% in A and in 20.19% in B. H. pylori infection occurred in 73.3% cases in A and in 46.4% in B. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs use was 3.5% in A and 13.3% in B. Neither condition occurred in 10.4% and 20.5% in A and B respectively. Comparing both periods, we observed reduction of peptic ulcer associated to H. pylori (P=0.000), increase of peptic ulcer related to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (P=0.000) and idiopathic peptic ulcer (P=0.002). The concurrent association of H. pylori and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs was also higher in B (P=0.002). Rates of gastric ulcer were higher and duodenal ulcer lower in the second period. After 10 years, the prevalence of peptic ulcer decreased, as well as ulcers related to H. pylori whereas ulcers associated to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs increased. There was an inversion in the pattern of gastric and duodenal ulcer and a rise of idiopathic peptic ulcer.

  3. The cytometric future: it ain't necessarily flow!

    Science.gov (United States)

    Shapiro, Howard M

    2011-01-01

    Initial approaches to cytometry for classifying and characterizing cells were based on microscopy; it was necessary to collect relatively high-resolution images of cells because only a few specific reagents usable for cell identification were available. Although flow cytometry, now the dominant cytometric technology, typically utilizes lenses similar to microscope lenses for light collection, improved, more quantitative reagents allow the necessary information to be acquired in the form of whole-cell measurements of the intensities of light transmission, scattering, and/or fluorescence.Much of the cost and complexity of both automated microscopes and flow cytometers arises from the necessity for them to measure one cell at a time. Recent developments in digital camera technology now offer an alternative in which one or more low-magnification, low-resolution images are made of a wide field containing many cells, using inexpensive light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for illumination. Minimalist widefield imaging cytometers can provide a smaller, less complex, and substantially less expensive alternative to flow cytometry, critical in systems intended for in resource-poor areas. Minimalism is, likewise, a good philosophy in developing instrumentation and methodology for both clinical and large-scale research use; it simplifies quality assurance and compliance with regulatory requirements, as well as reduces capital outlays, material costs, and personnel training requirements. Also, importantly, it yields "greener" technology.

    A new italian law introduces the regulation of occupational exposure to radon. To evaluate the inhalation of radon daughters by the workers a sampling device has been assembled with the aim of evaluation of unattached and aerosol attached radon daughters' fractions. The instrument, based on selection of the aerosuspended particles by means of a wire screen type battery and subsequent collection on a total filter, allows to describe the behaviour of both fractions using defined temporal pattern of collecting particles and counting them by alpha spectroscopy. A measurement campaign to test the radon daughter dichotomous spectrometer in comparison with a commercial Radon Working Level meter, has been performed in a research laboratory of central Italy affected by high radon concentrations. The radon concentration during the measurement campaign has been also measured. The equilibrium factor F{sub e}q ad the attachment factor fp have been evaluated during 3 days campaign. Using the measured mean parameters (radon concentration, F{sub e}q, f{sub p}) the dose evaluation for workers using dosimetric approach has been performed. A comparison between the epidemiologic approach, based on the radon concentration, and dosimetric approach is also presented. [Italian] L'esposizione a radon in ambiente lavorativo e la conseguente inalazione dei suoi prodotti di decadimento in forma particolata e' oggetto di una recente normativa italiana in materia di protezione dalle radiazioni ionizzanti. Per rispondere a questa necessita', presso l'Istituto per la Radioprotezione dell'ENEA di Bologna e' stato progettato e realizzato uno spettrometro alfa per la misura della progenie del radon con la finalita' di valutare, su brevi periodi di tempo, la concentrazione individuale dei suoi prodotti di decadimento e, con l'impiego di batterie a diffusione a reti, consentire inoltre la discriminazione della concentrazione della frazione attaccata e non

Métodos: Metodología cualitativa. La información se obtuvo de tres fuentes de datos: entrevistas semi - estructuradas, tanto con las madres o encargadas de los niños, como con los funcionarios a c argo de las consultas en los Equipos Básicos de Atención en Salud (EBAIS , y observaciones de las consultas en los EBAIS. Resultados: Las razones de uso están relacionadas , en los tres sitios, con los beneficios que les trae a las usuarias la consulta, el buen trato de l personal y la comodidad de las instalaciones de los EBAIS. Mientras que las razones de no uso comunes están asociadas al concepto de salud ligado a ausencia de enfermedad, la falta de información y problemas económicos de las usuarias, la n o asignación de citas después del año de edad y la calidad de la atención recibida. Las razones relacionadas con el contexto, como las largas distancias, las limitaciones en cuanto a medios de transporte, cobran gran relevancia principalmente en la zona ru ral y en el territorio indígena. Conclusiones: El colocar la asistencia a cita control de esta población dentro de los compromisos de gestión de la CCSS, asignar la cita previamente y designar el equipo de atención en los EBAIS tomando en cuenta no una no rma general, sino las condiciones particulares de cada sitio, son medidas que garantizarían el aumento de la cobertura de la atención integral a esta población.

    Purpose: To report the results of a three-year observational pilot study of lung cancer screening with low dose computed tomography (CT) and to present the study design of a randomised clinical trial named as Italung CT. Materials and methods: Sixty (47 males and 13 females, mean age 64{+-}4.5 years) heavy smokers (at least 20 packs-year) underwent three low-dose spiral CT screening tests one year apart on a single slice or multislice CT scanner. Indeterminate nodules were managed according to the recommendations of the Early Lung Cancer Action Project. Results: Indeterminate nodules were observed in 33 (55%) of the subjects (60% at the baseline screening test, 24% at the first annual test and 16% at the second annual test). The size of the largest indeterminate nodule was <5mm in diameter in 20 subjects. 10 of whom showed the nodule at the baseline test. Forty-five subjects (75%) completed the first annual test and 42 (70%) the second annual test. One (1.6%) prevalent lung cancer (adenosquamous carcinoma) and one (2.2%) incident lung cancer (small cell cancer at the first annual examination) were observed, as well as pulmonary localisation of Hodgkin's lymphoma (at the second annual test). In addition, one subject underwent lung surgery for a chondromatous hamartoma. Conclusions: The results of the pilot study are substantially in line with those of other observational studies of greater sample size. This justifies optimism about the reliability of the results in the screened arm of the Italung Ct trial which hast just began.

    Full Text Available Interpersonal communication involves more than just words; it involves emotion. Emotions can be roughly seen as complex organized internal states. Awareness of those states would allow human beings to evaluate social information and develop strategic social intelligence and hence, everyday actions convey social meaning and emotion. This paper reports an experience for supporting public-emotion based dialogs, where emotions are expressed, captured and transmitted between distant participants using tangible interfaces. We also exploit the social meaning of an everyday physical object such as a portrait, in order to create affective interfaces. We describe as well, a device that allows Emotional Awareness and supports the affective interpersonal interaction among people across distance.La comunicación interpersonal requiere más que solamente palabras, involucra emociones. En términos generales las emociones pueden ser vistas como estados internos complejamente organizados. El Awareness de estos estados permitiría a los seres humanos evaluar la información social y desarrollar inteligencia social estratégica y, por lo tanto, las acciones cotidianas estarían teñidas de significado social y emocional. Este artículo reporta una experiencia que busca permitir un diálogo basado en emociones expresadas, capturadas y transmitidas entre diversos participantes usando interfaces tangibles. Además, se explota el significado social de objetos físicos y cotidianos como un portarretratos, con el fin de crear interfaces afectivas entre usuarios dispersos geográficamente. En este artículo se describe un dispositivo que permite un tipo de Awareness emocional apoyando la interacción interpersonal y afectiva entre personas distantes geográficamente.

    Phase stability, oxidation resistance and great mechanical properties are the main objectives when synthesizing protective coatings. The tantalum nitride (TaN) has aroused interest because of its high temperature stability, chemical inertness and thermal conductivity. However, it has a low hardness value when compared to other coatings. Researches has shown that one way to improvements in the properties of a thin film is by adding other elements in the deposition process. Therefore, the objective of this study was to deposit thin films of TaAlN by magnetron sputtering, changing the aluminum concentration of 2, 5, 7, to 14%. Then the coatings were characterized by EDS, RBS, GIXRD and nanohardness. In this study was found that the aluminum deposited did not change the oxidation resistance of the coating, and the highest value of hardness was 28 GPa for the sample with 14 at.%. (author)

    This monograph is a companion to UNOAI Monograph 96-2, "The Image of Airport Security: An Annotated Bibliography," compiled in June 1996. The White House Commission on Aviation Safety and Security, headed by Vice President Al Gore, was formed as a result of the TWA Flight 800 crash in August 1996. The Commission's final report included 31 recommendations addressed toward aviation security. The recommendations were cause for security issues to be revisited in the media and by the aviation industry. These developments necessitated the need for an updated bibliography to review the resulting literature. Many of the articles were written in response to the recommendations made by the Gore Commission. "Aviation Security: An Annotated Bibliography of Responses to the Gore Commission" is the result of this need.

    Full Text Available This paper aims to investigate self-regulation enhancement within a CLIL course targeted to teach academic listening and reading skills. Explicit learning strategies instruction was implemented to promote learners’ skills to autonomously manage academic studies in Italian as a second language in a university setting. Students’ cognitive styles were also catered for while carrying out learning strategies instruction. Findings show that learners reached a high degree of self-regulation in terms of reading skills while tackling academic materials in Italian as a second language; on the other hand, a slightly lower degree of autonomy was detected in learners in terms of academic listening skills.

  5. Simmel y lo "cultura femenina" (Las múltiples lecturas de unos viejos textos

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    RAQUEL OSBORNE

    1987-01-01

    Full Text Available Se tratan algunos ensayos de Georg Simmel referentes a la "cuestion femenina". Ensayos que aparecieron originariamente en Philosophische Kultur (Leipzig: Werner Klinkhardt, 1911. Una traducción española de algunos de estos ensayos aparece entre 1923-1925 en la Revista de Occidente, editada por José Ortega y Gasset; pero tan solo recientemente han sido traducidos al inglés por Guy Oakes. Un concepto central en Simmel es la equiparación de lo "objetivo" con lo "masculino" y lo "subjetivo" con lo "femenino." Se repasan las distintas reacciones provocadas por las ideas de Simmel en diversas épocas y en las diversas comunidades del lenguaje - como las ediciones mencionadas-, incluyendo las de Karen Horney, José Ortega y Gasset, Rosa Chacel, y Julian Marías. A pesar de la publicación temprana en el mundo de habla hispana, existía una carencia de verdadero interés por la emancipación de la mujer entre esos conocedores de las ideas de Simmel, excepto Rosa Chacel.

    2013-06-01

    Full Text Available This paper, starting from the question “Which etichs for what future?”, retraces a few streets of ethical reflection, subdividing the exploration in moments of classical Greece (with Socrates, Plato and Aristotle, of modernity (with Kant, developments science, Hegel and of the current globalized world (with Jürgen Habermas and Karl-Otto Apel. The problem of values, in particular, and of ethics, in general, arises today, as in the past, in a double sense: regards, on the one hand, their possible foundation or legitimation, on the other, their possible sharing and acceptance by all members of the community. Discourse ethics, especially in the version theorized by Karl-Otto Apel, appears more congenial in outlining the minimum basis of a common ethics shared, guaranteed by the universal consensus of ethics intrinsic to the discourse.

The models of Decision Support System were utilized in order to conduct the studies. These models represent clearly a current economic situation and allow simulations in order to estimate in a preventive way the economic results of different alternative actions. The economic analysis was conducted according to the extended direct costing method utilizing a single performance (product as a calculation unit. The simulations were carried out in accordance to the “price-cost-volume analysis” method that identifies the break even point for the families of products. These analysis resulted in a significant improvement of the awareness relative to the economic actions of the operative managerial decisions: the main factor in the process of the decision making for the public healthcare structure is to respond to the needs of the potential users and therefore to satisfy the demand, the increase of which is immediately signalised by the lengthening of the awaiting list. For the structure which is incorporated in the hospital frame there is the necessity to provide the service towards inside the hospital both relative to the patients and to the performances of first aid supported by the emergency department. It is important to stress that, even if limited or conditional, there is a space for improvement: the first step in this direction is to analyse in order to recognize and to measure, if not able to improve that what is unknown and not measured before.

    Full Text Available This paper analyses the possible effects of the two-tier foreign exchange market. This system, which has been in operation in Belgium for over 15 years, has recently found new supporters, as is indicated by the fact that during the international monetary crisis of May 1971 the EEC Commission counselled its adoption. The author first analyses the reasons which may justify restrictions on the freedom of capital movements, both in the short run and in the longer term. Some of the technical characteristics of a two-tier foreign exchange market are then examined before the well-known Mundell analysis of the efficiency of monetary and fiscal policy in an open economy is extended to the case of a country with such a system. Finally, the author draws some conclusions and compares a two-tier system with other instruments designed to reduce the undesired repercussions of high capital mobility.JEL: F31, F36, E62

    For three weeks, from January 18 to February 5, 1988, scientists and engineers from 13 countries and 30 international agencies and institutions cooperated in the most extensive GPS (Global Positioning System) field campaign, and the largest geodynamics experiment, in the world to date. This collaborative eperiment concentrated GPS receivers in Central and South America. The predicted rates of motions are on the order of 5-10 cm/yr. Global coverage of GPS observations spanned 220 deg of longitude and 125 deg of latitude using a total of 43 GPS receivers. The experiment was the first civilian effort at implementing an extended international GPS satellite tracking network. Covariance analyses incorporating the extended tracking network predicted significant improvement in precise orbit determination, allowing accurate long-baseline geodesy in the science areas.

La prima parte dell’articolo è dedicata alla definizione del linguaggio del turismo e, in particolare, alle caratteristiche dal discorso orale delle guide turistiche, esito della mediazione tra linguaggio di specialità e lingua comune. Nella seconda parte viene introdotta e sviluppata l’analisi linguaggio orale delle guide turistiche a partire da un corpus costituito da diciotto file di trascrizione di registrazioni di visite guidate, in lingua italiana, svolte da guide turistiche straniere all’estero. Dallo studio effettuato è emerso come le scelte linguistiche dell’operatore professionale si declinino in funzione delle esigenze e delle caratteristiche del destinatario: ad un turista desideroso di «vedere», «conoscere» e «identificare» nello spazio ciò di cui si parla, la guida turistica risponde con un ampio impiego del verbo «chiamarsi» e di componenti grammaticali e lessicali (verbi, avverbi e preposizioni di luogo, aggettivi dimostrativi con un forte valore locativo.   Tourist guide italian: a study of the oral language of tourism   Elena Mauri    The object of this article is the oral language of tourist guides, a “special”, hard to find and poorly analyzed type of language production. The objective is to highlight some of the most typical features in relation to one of the most representative professionals in oral tourist communication, between expert and public: tourist guides. The first part of the article is devoted to the definition of the language of tourism and, in particular, to the characteristics of the oral discourse of tour guides and the outcome of mediation between specialized and common language. In the second part of the analysis, the oral language used by tourist guides is introduced and developed from a corpus consisting of eighteen transcriptions of recordings of guided tours in Italian, conducted by foreign tourist guides abroad. The study carried out shows that the language choices of the professional depends on the needs and characteristics of recipients: with a tourist who wants to “see”, “know” and “identify” what in the space is being talked about, the guide responds with an extensive use of the verb “chiamarsi” (to be called and components of grammar and vocabulary (verbs, adverbs and prepositions, demonstrative adjectives with strong locative value.

In this context, the three components of economie policy ­budgetary policy, incomes policy, monetary policy -are working in tandem, ensuring stability, the essential condition for any lasting and sustainable growth. Thus inflation has now been beaten; the balance of payments on current account has recorded increasing and substantial surpluses, and there has been a huge reduction in the budget deficit, with a large primary surplus. The sustainability of these results is ensured by the implementation of structural reforms: tax reform, reform of centraI government budget, reform of the civil service, pensions reform and reform of Italy's commercial system.  JEL Codes: E65

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available Il lavoro presenta un’analisi comparata tra due poemetti d’occasione in dialetto istroveneto dell’Istria sud-occidentale. I componimenti, scritti nel 1826 dal dignanese Martino Fioranti e dal canonico di Barbana Pietro Stancovich, rappresentano un’importante attestazione della presenza di un’attività poetica in quella che rappresentava all’epoca la koiné del territorio istriano, cioè l’idioma di diretta derivazione veneziana. I poemetti rivestono scarsa importanza a livello letterario. Più interessanti si rivelano, invece, se osservati da una prospettiva storica e documentaristica, attraverso la quale ci si svela l’ambiente, il costume dell’epoca, e soprattutto il rapporto di cordiale amicizia che univa i due poeti. In chiusura del lavoro si dà un breve confronto tra il poemetto e i tre sonetti di Martino Fioranti, rinvenuti nell’archivio della Biblioteca universitaria di Pola.

    2001-01-01

    Full Text Available El autor, en un estilo conclusivo, destaca la inmanencia y trascendencia como típicas de toda experiencia de Dios. En la suma inmanencia de la Encarnación, Dios se muestra el sumo trascedente y revela las tres personas, sin las cuales no se comprendería la posibilidad de la Encarnación redentora. Si Cristo es Dios con nosotros y el Espíritu su don en nuestros corazones, es en el Padre donde sobre todo percibimos la trascendencia. La revelación del interior de Dios se inserta, por así decirlo, en ese Dios que el hombre oscuramente busca en la teología negativa. Del esplendor de ese Dios nos habla la revelación. Pero no hay que trivializarlo. El ateísmo es una mala interpretación de la experiencia humana. El autor muestra la búsqueda de una expresión dogmática y de una comprensión, y las dificultades que esto conlleva. Aunque integra varias visiones, insiste en la economía. De esta forma recalca la monarquía del PadreThe author, in a conclusive style, highlights the immanence and transcendence as typical of any experience of God. In the supreme immanence act of the Incarnation, God shows himself as the supreme transcendent and discloses the three persons, without which the possibility of the redeeming Incarnation would be incomprehensible. If Christ is God with us, and the Holy Spirit is his gift in our hearts, then, it is in the Father where we perceive, above all, the transcendence. The revelation of God's interior is inserted in that God which man obscurely seeks in negative theology. The revelation talks to us about the splendour of this God. But this issue should not be trivialised. Atheism is a misinterpretation of the human experience. The author shows the search of a dogmatic expression, of an understanding and of the complexities this brings along. Through an integration of several visions, the author insists on the economy, stressing the Father's monarchy.

    Full Text Available Cada vez con mayor frecuencia observamos como se atribuye el crecimiento turístico a la oferta cultural de los destinos. Evidentemente algo de ello es cierto, pero ¿es realmente la cultura, el patrimonio y legado cultural de los pueblos, lo que activa el flujo turístico hacia un destino? Los destinos y los que desean ser destinos se engalanan y afanan en atraer cuantos más visitantes mejor. Del éxito de sus atractivos dependerá su reproducción. En esta tarea el uso de los recursos se vuelve intensivo. Medioambiente, ocio, deportes, espacios, eventos de cualquier naturaleza y, por supuesto, la cultura local son aptos para tal fin. Sin embargo, salvo aquellos preparados explícitamente para el turista, no todos los recursos poseen la capacidad de poder ser presentados, contemplados y entendidos en su complejidad. Deben ser adaptados para un uso repetitivo, rápido, ameno y sencillo, preparados para la mirada, no para la lectura. Esto hace pensar en la posibilidad de que sobre un mismo lugar, evento o artefacto patrimonial puedan pesar varias versiones, varios argumentos según sus destinatarios y usos. Desde este punto de vista existiría un patrimonio cultural para el turismo que podría o no ser activado, promovido y consumido exclusivamente motivado por intereses económicos

    Full Text Available Rethinking «98» in Puerto Rico requires giving up «victimized» perspectives whereby the Porto Rican people are set free of all responsibility. Focusing on 1898 as a year of both liberation and domination, this article weighs up the positive and negative aspects of Northamerican imperialism, while analyzing the unbalanced and particular struggles of the Porto Ricans in the social, economical, cultural and political fields. This process is partly followed through the writhings of Elihu Root and Salvador Brau.

    Repesar el 98 en Puerto Rico supone alejarse de planteamientos victimistas que eximen de toda responsabilidad al pueblo puertorriqueño. El 98 es abordado en este trabajo como un año de liberación y dominación, en el que se valoran los aspectos positivos y negativos del imperialismo norteamericano, a la vez que se analizan críticamente las luchas, desiguales y singulares, de este pueblo por la justicia social y económica, la cultura y las libertades políticas. El pensamiento de Elihu Root y Salvador Brau ilustran parte de este proceso.

    The cost effective provision of quality care for chronic diseases is a major challenge for health care systems. We describe a project to improve the care of patients with the highly prevalent disorders of diabetes and hypertension, conducted in one of the major cities of the United Arab Emirates. The project, using the principles of quality assurance cycles, was conducted in 4 stages.The assessment stage consisted of a community survey and an audit of the health care system, with particular emphasis on chronic disease care. The information gleaned from this stage provided feedback to the staff of participating health centers. In the second stage, deficiencies in health care were identified and interventions were developed for improvements, including topics for continuing professional development.In the third stage, these strategies were piloted in a single health centre for one year and the outcomes evaluated. In the still ongoing fourth stage, the project was rolled out to all the health centers in the area, with continuing evaluation. The intervention consisted of changes to establish a structured care model based on the predicted needs of this group of patients utilizing dedicated chronic disease clinics inside the existing primary health care system. These clinics incorporated decision-making tools, including evidence-based guidelines, patient education and ongoing professional education. The intervention was successfully implemented in all the health centers. The health care quality indicators that showed the greatest improvement were the documentation of patient history (e.g. smoking status and physical activity); improvement in recording physical signs (e.g. body mass index (BMI)); and an improvement in the requesting of appropriate investigations, such as HbA1c and microalbuminurea. There was also improvement in those parameters reflecting outcomes of care, which included HbA1c, blood pressure and lipid profiles. Indicators related to lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation and BMI, failed to improve. Chronic disease care is a joint commitment by health care providers and patients. This combined approach proved successful in most areas of the project, but the area of patient self management requires further improvement.

  19. The Danish health care system: it ain't broke... so don't fix it.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mooney, Gavin

    2002-02-01

    The organisation and financing of the Danish health care system was evaluated within a framework of analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (a SWOT analysis) by a panel of five members with a background in health economics. The evaluation was based on reading an extensive amount of selected documents and literature on the Danish health care system, and a 1 week-visit to health care authorities, providers and key persons. This paper includes the main findings by one of the panel members. The international competition 'wave' passed by Denmark, and the Danish might rightly say 'thank goodness'. Funding is very largely public and there is a single dominant authority, i.e. the county, which makes planning easier. Low levels of patient payments and the smaller size of the private sector reflect Danish 'solidarity' and promote equity. Planning is good. Exceptions to this are the over-concern with hospital waiting lists and the flirting with DRG based funding. Greater investment in planning approaches would make the system yet better. The GP blended remuneration system with capitation and fee for service is a major strength. The fact that the system has such potential for technical and allocative efficiency and also equity but is not fully exploited suggests the need for more investment in health services research. While there is scope for improving the health care system in Denmark, the rest of the world has as much to learn from the Danes as the Danes have from the rest of the world.

    The objective of this work was to study NbAlN thin films and the influence of variation in the concentration of aluminum in the crystal structure and oxidation resistance of these coatings. The thin films were deposited by reactive magnetron sputtering and characterized by Grazing Incidence X-ray Diffraction (GIXRD), Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) and oxidation tests at high temperatures. NbAlN thin films were deposited and present at concentration of 10, 20 and 42 at% Al. The NbAlN crystalline phase obtained was the δ-NbN, however it was observed a shift of the peaks in the patterns obtained GIXRD of regions for larger angles for these samples, indicating the formation of a solid solution. The higher oxidation resistance temperature was 700° C for the sample with 42 in at% Al. From the SEM analysis it was possible to observe the surface of the film after oxidation, all films showed defects, however the amount of such defects was lower in samples with higher aluminum concentrations.

    The objective of this project is to apply whole-tree harvesting method to Finnish timber harvesting conditions in order to lower the harvesting costs of energy wood and timber in spruce-dominant final cuttings. In Finnish conditions timber harvesting is normally based on the log-length method. Because of small landings and the high level of thinning cuttings, whole-tree skidding methods cannot be utilised extensively. The share of stands which could be harvested with whole-tree skidding method showed up to be about 10 % of the total harvesting amount of 50 mill. m{sup 3}. The corresponding harvesting potential of energy wood is 0,25 Mtoe. The aim of the structural measurements made in this project was to get information about the effect of different hauling methods into the structural response of the tractor, and thus reveal the possible special requirements that the new whole-tree skidding places forest tractor design. Altogether 7 strain gauge based sensors were mounted into the rear frame structures and drive shafts of the forest tractor. Five strain gauges measured local strains in some critical details and two sensors measured the torque moments of the front and rear bogie drive shafts. Also the revolution speed of the rear drive shaft was recorded. Signal time histories, maximum peaks, Time at Level distributions and Rainflow distributions were gathered in different hauling modes. From these, maximum values, average stress levels and fatigue life estimates were calculated for each mode, and a comparison of the different methods from the structural point of view was performed

  2. "Ain't no one here but us social forces": constructing the professional responsibility of engineers.

    2012-03-01

    There are many ways to avoid responsibility, for example, explaining what happens as the work of the gods, fate, society, or the system. For engineers, "technology" or "the organization" will serve this purpose quite well. We may distinguish at least nine (related) senses of "responsibility", the most important of which are: (a) responsibility-as-causation (the storm is responsible for flooding), (b) responsibility-as-liability (he is the person responsible and will have to pay), (c) responsibility-as-competency (he's a responsible person, that is, he's rational), (d) responsibility-as-office (he's the responsible person, that is, the person in charge), and (e) a responsibility-as-domain-of-tasks (these are her responsibilities, that is, the things she is supposed to do). For all but the causal sense of responsibility, responsibility may be taken (in a relatively straightforward sense)-and generally is. Why then would anyone want to claim that certain technologies make it impossible to attribute responsibility to engineers (or anyone else)? In this paper, I identify seven arguments for that claim and explain why each is fallacious. The most important are: (1) the argument from "many hands", (2) the argument from individual ignorance, and (3) the argument from blind forces. Each of these arguments makes the same fundamental mistake, the assumption that a certain factual situation, being fixed, settles responsibility, that is, that individuals, either individually or by some group decision, cannot take responsibility. I conclude by pointing out the sort of decisions (and consequences) engineers have explicitly taken responsibility for and why taking responsibility for them is rational, all things considered. There is no technological bar to such responsibility. © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2010

    GaN and related structures attracted a great interest in the recent years for electronic and optoelectronic applications due to their promising properties. GaN is grown popularly on foreign substrates like sapphire and SiC. However, silicon due to its favourable properties attended the great attention of material scientists and researchers to utilize as substrate for heteroepitaxy of GaN based structures and devices. Silicon substrates are low cost, available in large diameters and have well characterized thermal and electrical properties. In this study, GaN/AlN/Si(111) heterostructures were grown by molecular beam epitaxy. We performed x-ray diffraction spectroscopy and spectroscopic ellipsometry on these samples to study their structural and optical properties. XRD measurements performed on these samples revealed the presence of high quality GaN films as well as the presence of AlN buffer layer with the following miller indices: GaN (002), GaN (004), GaN (006) and GaN (110) along with Si peak of phase (111). The ellipsometric data obtained were used to characterize the GaN/Si samples as a function of film thickness. Refractive index, extinction coefficient and dielectric constant were calculated by the measured data. (author)

    Phase stability, oxidation resistance and great mechanical properties are the main objectives when synthesizing protective coatings. The tantalum nitride (TaN) has aroused interest because of its high temperature stability, chemical inertness and thermal conductivity. However, it has a low hardness value when compared to other coatings. Researches has shown that one way to improvements in the properties of a thin film is by adding other elements in the deposition process. Therefore, the objective of this study was to deposit thin films of TaAlN by magnetron sputtering, changing the aluminum concentration of 2, 5, 7, to 14%. Then the coatings were characterized by EDS, RBS, GIXRD and nanohardness. In this study was found that the aluminum deposited did not change the oxidation resistance of the coating, and the highest value of hardness was 28 GPa for the sample with 14 at.%. (author)

    Full Text Available The use of ceramic materials like titanium and aluminium nitrides have experienced a great improvement in the last years due to the variety of applications they show. The use as protective coatings on industrial tools is one important application with very favorable results for the moment, as it is the use as coating molds used for different elements fabrication. One of the mostly often used techniques to deposit protective coatings is the sputtering technique, which has been used in this work. In the present study we have analysed structural and mechanical properties of TiN and AlN thin films, using X-Ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, nanoindentation and pin-on-disk techniques. Thermal treatments have been applied on the mentioned films, applying three different temperature values: 750oC, 850oC y 950oC. Changes in their properties before and after the treatments have been observed. TiN layers show a thermal resistance around 750oC. The thermal resistance for AlN layers is around 850oC, being also observed an improvement in their properties when applying 850ºC of thermal treatment.

    La utilización de materiales cerámicos como el nitruro de titanio o de aluminio ha experimentado una gran popularización en los últimos años gracias a su gran variedad de aplicaciones. Una importante aplicación que cuenta hasta el momento con resultados muy favorables es la de su uso como recubrimientos protectores de herramientas industriales, así como de moldes empleados en la fabricación de diferentes elementos. Una de las técnicas más utilizadas en la obtención de recubrimientos protectores es la técnica de sputtering, utilizada en este trabajo. En el presente estudio se han analizado las propiedades estructurales y mecánicas de láminas delgadas de TiN y AlN mediante las técnicas de difracción de rayos X, microscopía electrónica de barrido, nanoindentación y pin-on-disk. Dichas capas han sido sometidas a un tratamiento térmico en el que se han aplicado tres temperaturas: 750oC, 850oC y 950oC, y se han observado variaciones en sus propiedades antes y después del tratamiento. Las capas de TiN presentan una resistencia térmica en torno a 750oC. Las capas de AlN resisten hasta una temperatura en torno a 850oC, observándose además una mejoría en sus propiedades al ser sometidas a dicha temperatura de 850oC.

    Ochratoxin A (OTA) is potently nephrotoxic, teratogenic and carcinogenic, and the potency was varied markedly between species and sexes. Unfortunately, OTA are present due to mold contamination in different food stuffs such as coffee bean, therefore, the present study was carried out on collected imported coffee samples from super markets in Egypt. The isolation and identification proved presence of Penicilli sp. and Aspergillus sp. whereas the last one was dominant in two samples as A. niger and A. ochoruses. Determination of OTA by using HPLC analysis showed presence of high levels than the allowance levels in green coffee beans (more than 5 μg/kg; ppb). In addition, another group of collected samples as roasted coffee beans indicated the presence of high toxic concentrations of OTA. The study was then conducted on samples contain the highest OTA content by using some physical methods as gamma irradiation (5 and 10 kGy), charcoal (powder, granules), roasting (at 200 0 C for 7-10 min and 20 min). The results showed that proposed physical methods, mainly gamma irradiation and charcoal, could be efficient to decrease OTA in green beans coffee without produce toxic substance as well as non-significant changes in its properties. In addition, safety of resulted coffee beans after treatments were checked by ESR and genotoxicity test, which raise the preferability of gamma irradiation (10 kGy) treatment before using medium roasting to get coffee beans free from OTA

    A completely new type of actuator - one that is proposed for use in a variety of environments from sea to land to air to space - has been designed, patented, built, and tested. The actuator is loosely based on the principle of the internal combustion engine, except that it is a completely closed system, only requiring electrical input, and the working fuel is water. This paper outlines the theory behind the electrolysis- and ignition-based cycle upon which the actuator operates and describes the performance capability test apparatus and results for the actuator. A mechanism application that harnessed the unit s power to twist a scaled rotor blade is also highlighted.

    The organ shortage has resulted in increased use of kidneys from expanded criteria donors (ECD). For ECD kidneys unsuitable for single use, dual kidney transplants (DKT) may be possible. There are limited data comparing outcomes of DKT to single kidney ECD transplants, making it unclear where DKT fits in the current allocation scheme. Our purpose was to compare outcomes of DKT and ECD transplants in the United States. From 2000 to 2005, a total of 625 DKT, 7686 single kidney ECD, and 6,044 SCD transplants from donors aged>or=50 years were identified from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network/United Network for Organ Sharing data. Allograft survival was the primary outcome. DKT comprised 4% of kidney transplants from donors aged>or=50 years. Compared to the ECD donor group, the DKT donor group was older (mean age 64.6+/-7.7 years vs. 59.9+/-6.2 years) and consisted of more African Americans (13.1% vs. 9.9%), and more diabetic donors (16.3% vs. 10.4%; PDKT (22.2+/-9.7 hr), but rates of delayed graft function were lower (29.3%) compared to ECD transplants (33.6%, P=0.03). Three-year overall graft survival was 79.8% for DKT and 78.3% for ECD transplants. DKT were infrequent and had outcomes comparable to ECD transplants, despite the use of organs from higher risk donors. With a more upfront approach to DKT by offering this option to patients at the time of wait-listing as part of an ECD algorithm, we may be able to further optimize outcomes of DKT and minimize discard of potential organs.

    The following report is strictly connected to studies for introducing certain actions useful to effort the problem of urban traffic pollution. Technologies are today available to reduce traffic pollution and it is possible to verify effectiveness during the implementation. On the other hand it is not always possible to verify effectiveness of these measures on the citizen customs and quality of life. Frequently policies aiming to limit environmental risk are viewed by citizens as an insupportable coercion. In the case of urban traffic it is particularly true because the measures in this field are limited to a certain numbers of prohibitions limiting the moving freedom of citizens inside urban areas. This research, realised via a questionnaire on citizens representative of two roman districts, analyses the social acceptability degree of actions for reducing atmospheric pollution produced by automobile traffic in the city of Rome. [Italian] Il lavoro presentato di seguito si inserisce in un filone di studi che tendono a individuare quelle azioni capaci di sciogliere il nodo ormai cruciale dell'inquinamento da traffico nelle aree urbane. Azioni efficaci ne sono state individuate numerose ma, mentre per quanto riguarda le misure tecnologiche l'efficacia intrinseca della misura viene verificata nell'applicazione, non sempre si puo' dire la stessa cosa per quanto riguarda le misure che incidono sulle abitudini di vita dei cittadini. Sempre piu' spesso le politiche tese a limitare i danni ambientali sono vissute dal cittadino come una insopportabile coercizione. Nel caso del traffico urbano cio' e' particolarmente vero proprio perche' le misure di questo settore si limitano spesso a una serie di divieti che oggettivamente limitano la liberta' di movimento del cittadino. I blocchi del traffico, le zone blu, sono gli esempi piu' lampanti di questo tipo di limitazione. Questa ricerca sul campo, svolta tramite questionario e su un campione di cittadini di due quartieri di Roma, si propone di esaminare il grado di accettazione sociale di una serie di misure tendenti a ridurre l'inquinamento atmosferico causato dal traffico veicolare urbano, dal momento che trova unanime consenso riconoscere al traffico veicolare e piu' in generale al sistema di vita urbano le maggiori responsabilita' per quanto riguarda la produzione di sostanze inquinanti dell'aria.

    Full Text Available Il saggio descrive e analizza la teoria della rappresentazionalità presentata da Kendall Walton in Mimesi come far finta. Le rappresentazioni sono supporti atti a suscitare un far finta che si esplica come un immaginare proposizionale: ecco la tesi dell’autore. I caratteri di tale far finta, la dinamica della partecipazione, la distinzione tra figuralità e verbalità, e il problema delle entità fittizie, sono i punti cardine della proposta waltoniana. La questione dell’esperienza, e la sua possibile, originaria, tematizzazione estetica; il tema del rapporto tra emozioni fittizie e reali; e la maniera specifica in  cui l’autore intende la mimesi della rappresentazione, sono, in particolare, gli aspetti che il saggio problematizza più estesamente.The essay is intended to describe while analyzing the theory of representationality as presented by Kendall Walton in Mimesis as Make-Believe. Representations are mediums leading to provoke a make-believe – its kind building up as propositional acts of imagination: such the thesis that the author asserts. Features of this make-believe, the dynamics of participation, the distinction between figurality and verbality, the problem of fictional entities, those are the nodal joints of the waltonian proposal. The question of experience – and its possible, originary, aesthetical thematization, the thematization of the relation between fictional and real emotions, and the specific sense in which the author draws the mimesis proper to representation: such the aspects which the present essay is mostly concerned with.

    The theory of retrograde menstruation as aetiopathogenesis of endometriosis formulated by John Sampson in 1927 shows clear shortcomings: this does not explain why retrograde menstruation is a physiological process that affects 90% of women, while endometriosis occurs in only 10% of cases; it also does not explain the endometriotic foci distant from the pelvis, nor explains the cases of endometriosis in male patients. The immunological alterations of the peritoneal fluid explains the effects of disease, such as the inhibition of the physiological processes of cytolysis, but does not explain the cause. There is evidence to support the hypothesis that ectopic müllerian remnants of the endometrium, endocervix and endosalpinx are items from the genital ridge leaked during organogenesis. It is known that tissues derived from coelomatic epithelial and mesenchymal cells have the potential to metaplastically differentiate into epithelium and stroma. In addition, the phenotype of the ectopic endometrial cells is significantly different from those ectopic. There is scientific evidence that, during organogenesis, the genes of the Homeobox and Wingless family play a fundamental role in the differentiation of the ducts of Muller and development of the anatomical structure of the urogenital tract. We present here a hypothesis that deregulation of genes and the Wnt signaling pathway Wnt/β-catenin leads to aberrations and deregulation within the mesoderm, thus, may cause aberrant placement of stem cells. In addition, immune cells, adhesion molecules, extracellular matrix metalloproteinase and pro-inflammatory cytokines activate/alter peritoneal microenvironment, creating the conditions for differentiation, adhesion, proliferation and survival of ectopic endometrial cells.

    Full Text Available Emotions are a key dimension in helping professions, but they often appear less important than the technical aspects. This work begins with a collection of declarations from firefighters working in various situations and aims to stimulate reflection about how the change of emotional aspects depends mainly on age, job experience and the ordinary or extraordinary nature of the context. Inexpert and younger firefighters express emotions with more intensity whereas the expert ones have more effective tools to keep emotional impact at distance. We often think that maxi-emergencies, that are extraordinary events, are richer in emotions than the other events, but the research gives different results about this. The most striking elements are those linked to unusual scenaries, that are typical of extraordinary events as well as of ordinary ones: so, even an ordinary event may become an extraordinary event. A noteworthy fact emerging form this work is the vulnerability to children, which is present at every age. Moreover, there is a remark on the importance of psychologists in emergency areas, and some firefighters who had to cope with very difficult situations emphasize their role.

    Full Text Available The article develops with a multidisciplinary approach the theme of the policies of contrast, prevention and repression of “corruption”, the latter understood as a factor of socio-anthropological degradation that threatens the well-being of individuals in the communities in which they live, work and interact. According to the context analysis of an attentive monitoring carried out by the European Union, corruption is a “systemic” phenomenon, opposition to which calls for more effective political commitment as it “seriously harms the economy and society as a whole”.A serious and effective policy of opposition to the corruptive phenomenon identifies itself by at least two dynamic and interacting aspects: for the capacity of vision and interaction of a general, planning and systemic type between different levels, and for the ability of (penetration action in the context, correction and punishment, according to a short, medium and long-term perspective. The effectiveness and success of a serious (public action of opposition to corruption, therefore, depends on the willingness to respond to a pervasive phenomenon with appropriateness of investigation, knowledge, method and instruments that allows actions to be planned and arranged and differentiating them over a sufficient time-period, because of the concrete risk found in the various sectors and levels of Government. That is, instruments are needed that strengthen the capacity of control and of ethical enhancement of the human capital of organisations for the areas of intervention, having an influence on the inherent risk of corruption in each social-political-organisational system.Prevention through the culture of ethics and legality takes on a crucial role together with the training and orientation of the human capital towards positive values of integrity, of the selection of merit and the guarantee of equal opportunities. Prevention policies that promote the culture and dissemination of ethics, the rule of law and of anti-corruption in relations between private individuals and public authorities, as well as generally in custom and lifestyle, are practical for the objective of a serious opposition to the corruption and dishonesty - and hence the inefficiency - of public institutions.

  11. Utopia economica. Uno studio genealogico del neoliberalismo di Gary Becker in relazione al pensiero di Jeremy Bentham

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eleonora Buono

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available L’Autrice si propone di tracciare la genealogia della posizione neoliberale, partendo soprattutto dai testi di Gary Becker. Il pensiero economico neoliberale è posto in relazione con la rivoluzione scientifica e l’operazione di matematizzazione della natura che da essa scaturisce. Questo percorso porterà poi a Jeremy Bentham, il cui sistema è spesso visto come antesignano degli studiosi neoliberali. Secondo la tesi sostenuta dall’Autrice, il neoliberalismo presenta il proprio sguardo come una neutra e scientifica descrizione del reale, sennonché in tale mossa si annida pur sempre una tendenza normativa. È così che gli economisti neoliberali elaborano un sistema che è altresì prescrittivo, proponendo un modello che si pone sul piano politico; modello il quale viene qui designato con il nome di «utopia economica».

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Cid, Jesús-Antonio

    1996-06-01

    Full Text Available The correspondence of the Secretarles of State and War of the Government of Flanders shows that between 1637 and 1639 Velázquez received several commissions of portraits of the Count-Duke of Olivares which were to be «originals» based on a 1636 model. This information allows us to cali into question a commonplace in art criticism, namely, that Velázquez never repeated himself and that, therefore, variant versions of the «same» picture must necessarily be regarded as «studio» paintings or copies executed by a different hand. The present study examines the possible interests, utilitarian or symbolic, that the Olivares portraits would have served for a bureaucratic clientele; analogous cases dealing with questions of attribution, as found in the coeval literature; and, finally, Velázquez's social status as an artist.La correspondencia de los Secretarios de Estado y Guerra del Gobierno de Flandes permite documentar diversos encargos a Velázquez, entre 1637 y 1639, de retratos del Conde-Duque de Olivares que habrían de ser «originales» y remontarían a un primer modelo de 1636. Estos datos nos llevan a cuestionar un lugar común de la crítica de arte, según el cual Velázquez no se repetía nunca a sí mismo, por lo que las variantes de un «mismo» cuadro habrían de ser consideradas forzosamente obras de «taller» o copias de mano ajena. Conjeturas sobre las funciones, pragmáticas o simbólicas, que los retratos del privado hubieron de tener en una clientela de burócratas. Analogías con cuestiones de autoría que se plantean en la literatura coetánea. Por último, reflexiones acerca del estatuto social de Velázquez como artista.

  3. In-situ metrology in multiwafer reactors during MOVPE of AIN-based UV-LEDs (Conference Presentation)

    Knauer, Arne; Brunner, Frank; Kolbe, Tim; Hagedorn, Sylvia; Kueller, Viola; Weyers, Markus

    2017-02-01

    UV-LEDs are of great interest for applications like disinfection, gas sensing, and phototherapy. The cost sensitive LEDs are commonly grown by MOVPE on transparent AlN/sapphire templates. The large thermal and lattice mismatch between AlN and sapphire generates a very high dislocation density (DD) and causes big challenges in strain management. The threading dislocation density should be reduced to the order of low 108cm-2 for high internal efficiency of the AlGaN based UV-LED structures. The TDD will be reduced mainly by dislocation annihilation during the growth of thick Al(Ga)N layers, which is a challenge in terms of strain management. We present how in-situ reflectometry and curvature measurement (EpiCurveTT(at)LayTec) in commercial multiwafer growth reactors helps to optimize the growth processes concerning growth rates, surface roughening and avoidance of layer cracking on 2inch substrates and enhance the reproducibility of epitaxial growth. The growth of up to 3 μm thick planar AlN templates and up-to 10 μm thick AlN/sapphire templates by epitaxial lateral overgrowth of stripe patterned templates for UV-C LED structures will be highlighted. The implementation of different types of AlN/GaN superlattices for the subsequent growth of up to 5μm thick Al0.5Ga0.5N layer for UVB LED structures will be shown. Correlations to ex-situ measurements like X-ray diffraction and TEM analysis of defects in the LED structures will be shown. Some challenges of in-situ control through very narrow viewports as in Close Coupled Showerhead reactors will be discussed as well as the influence of silicon doping on curvature and dislocation density in Al(Ga)N layers.

    Although psychological theories outline that it might be beneficial to set more challenging goals, people attempting to lose weight are generally recommended to set modest weight loss goals. The present study explores whether the amount of weight loss individuals strive for is associated with more positive psychological and behavioral outcomes. Hereto, 447 overweight and obese participants trying to lose weight completed two questionnaires with a 2-month interval. Many participants set goals that could be considered unrealistically high. However, higher weight loss goals did not predict dissatisfaction but predicted more effort in the weight loss attempt, as well as more self-reported short-term weight loss when baseline commitment and motivation were controlled for.

    Full Text Available This work presents the very first results of the application of plasma magnetic filtering achieved by a coil coupled with an electrical circuit of a coaxial accelerator during the synthesis of A1N thin films by use of Impulse Plasma Deposition method (IPD. The uniqueness of this technical solution lies in the fact that the filter is not supplied, controlled and synchronized from any external device. Our solution uses the energy from the electrical circuit of plasma accelerator. The plasma state was described on the basis of OES studies. Estimation of the effects of plasma filtering on the film quality was carried out on the basis of characterization of structure morphology (SEM, phase and chemical composition (vibrational spectroscopy. Our work has shown that the use of the developed magnetic self-filter improved the structure of the AlN coatings synthesized under the condition of impulse plasma, especially by the minimization of the tendency to deposit metallic aluminum droplets and columnar growth.

    The radioisotope X-ray fluorescence method was applied to studies of the provenance of the ceramics fragments originated from the Mar-Takla site in Syria. The samples were irradiated 1000s by a 109 Cd radioisotope source and 13 elements (Ca, Ti, Mn, Fe, Zn, Ga, As, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr and Pb) were determined in 35 samples. The data were subjected to two multivariate statistical methods, cluster and principal components analysis (PCA). It was shown from the combination of the statistical techniques and the determination of elemental composition of the samples that 94% of the ceramic samples analyzed can be considered to be manufactured using two sources of raw materials

    We report the preparation and stability of ScVO 3.5+x and the novel phase InVO 3.5+x . AVO 3.5+x (A=Sc, In) defect fluorite structures are formed as metastable intermediates during the topotactic oxidation of AVO 3 bixbyites. The oxidation pathway has been studied in detail by means of thermogravimetric/differential thermal analysis and in-situ powder X-ray diffraction. The oxidation of the bixbyite phase follows a topotactic pathway at temperatures between 300 and 400 deg. C in air/carbon dioxide. The range of accessible oxygen stoichiometries for the AVO 3.5+x structures following this pathway are 0.00≤x≤0.22. Rietveld refinements against powder X-ray and neutron data revealed that InVO 3.54 and ScVO 3.70 crystallize in the defect fluorite structure in space group Fm-3 m (227) with a=4.9863(5) and 4.9697(3)A, respectively with A 3+ /V 4+ disorder on the (4a) cation site. Powder neutron diffraction experiments indicate clustering of oxide defects in all samples. Bulk magnetic measurements showed the presence of V 4+ and the absence of magnetic ordering at low temperatures. Powder neutron diffraction experiments confirmed the absence of a long range ordered magnetic ground state. - Graphical abstract: Topotactic oxidation of AVO 3 bixbyite to AVO 3.5 defect fluorite structure followed by in-situ powder X-ray diffraction. The upper structural diagram shows a six coordinated (A/V)-O 6 fragment in bixbyite, the lower structure illustrates the same seven-fold coordinated (A/V)-O 7 cubic environment in the defect fluorite structure

    We examined four meta-analyses of behavioral interventions for adults (Dixon, Keefe, Scipio, Perri, & Abernethy, 2007; Hoffman, Papas, Chatkoff, & Kerns, 2007; Irwin, Cole, & Nicassio, 2006; and Jacobsen, Donovan, Vadaparampil, & Small, 2007) that have appeared in the Evidence Based Treatment Reviews section of Health Psychology. Narrative review. We applied the following criteria to each meta-analysis: (1) whether each meta-analysis was described accurately, adequately, and transparently in the article; (2) whether there was an adequate attempt to deal with methodological quality of the original trials; (3) the extent to which the meta-analysis depended on small, underpowered studies; and (4) the extent to which the meta-analysis provided valid and useful evidence-based recommendations. Across the four meta-analyses, we identified substantial problems with the transparency and completeness with which these meta-analyses were reported, as well as a dependence on small, underpowered trials of generally poor quality. Results of our exercise raise questions about the clinical validity and utility of the conclusions of these meta-analyses. Results should serve as a wake up call to prospective authors, reviewers, and end-users of meta-analyses now appearing in the literature. Copyright 2010 APA, all rights reserved.

  5. A New Look at Shelter 131/51 in the Natufian Site of Eynan (Ain-Mallaha, Israel.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gil Haklay

    Full Text Available In the past 25 years since the reconstruction of Shelter 131 of Eynan was suggested by Francois Valla, its image has become almost iconic--a highly cited symbol of early sedentism constituting a significant part of our knowledge on early stone constructions and the people behind them. A new look at the architectural remains and the stratigraphy resulted in an alternative reconstruction, essentially different than the one we have come to know. We used spatial (architectural-geometrical analysis in order to study the relationships between the different architectural elements and to test our hypothesis that the series of postholes may have not pertained to the upper floor 131 of Layer IV as suggested by Perrot and Valla, but rather to the successive occupational and architectural episode. The association of the postholes with Wall 51 of Layer III sheds new light on the architectural remains revealing their geometric design, an important characteristic of Early Natufian Architecture, the meaning and implications of which we shortly discuss.

  9. Straight talk about high-fructose corn syrup: what it is and what it ain't.

    Science.gov (United States)

    White, John S

    2008-12-01

    High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a fructose-glucose liquid sweetener alternative to sucrose (common table sugar) first introduced to the food and beverage industry in the 1970s. It is not meaningfully different in composition or metabolism from other fructose-glucose sweeteners like sucrose, honey, and fruit juice concentrates. HFCS was widely embraced by food formulators, and its use grew between the mid-1970s and mid-1990s, principally as a replacement for sucrose. This was primarily because of its sweetness comparable with that of sucrose, improved stability and functionality, and ease of use. Although HFCS use today is nearly equivalent to sucrose use in the United States, we live in a decidedly sucrose-sweetened world: >90% of the nutritive sweetener used worldwide is sucrose. Here I review the history, composition, availability, and characteristics of HFCS in a factual manner to clarify common misunderstandings that have been a source of confusion to health professionals and the general public alike. In particular, I evaluate the strength of the popular hypothesis that HFCS is uniquely responsible for obesity. Although examples of pure fructose causing metabolic upset at high concentrations abound, especially when fed as the sole carbohydrate source, there is no evidence that the common fructose-glucose sweeteners do the same. Thus, studies using extreme carbohydrate diets may be useful for probing biochemical pathways, but they have no relevance to the human diet or to current consumption. I conclude that the HFCS-obesity hypothesis is supported neither in the United States nor worldwide.

  10. Development of Production PVD-AIN Buffer Layer System and Processes to Reduce Epitaxy Costs and Increase LED Efficiency

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Cerio, Frank

    2013-09-14

    The DOE has set aggressive goals for solid state lighting (SSL) adoption, which require manufacturing and quality improvements for virtually all process steps leading to an LED luminaire product. The goals pertinent to this proposed project are to reduce the cost and improve the quality of the epitaxial growth processes used to build LED structures. The objectives outlined in this proposal focus on achieving cost reduction and performance improvements over state-of-the-art, using technologies that are low in cost and amenable to high efficiency manufacturing. The objectives of the outlined proposal focus on cost reductions in epitaxial growth by reducing epitaxy layer thickness and hetero-epitaxial strain, and by enabling the use of larger, less expensive silicon substrates and would be accomplished through the introduction of a high productivity reactive sputtering system and an effective sputtered aluminum-nitride (AlN) buffer/nucleation layer process. Success of the proposed project could enable efficient adoption of GaN on-silicon (GaN/Si) epitaxial technology on 150mm silicon substrates. The reduction in epitaxy cost per cm{sup 2} using 150mm GaN-on-Si technology derives from (1) a reduction in cost of ownership and increase in throughput for the buffer deposition process via the elimination of MOCVD buffer layers and other throughput and CoO enhancements, (2) improvement in brightness through reductions in defect density, (3) reduction in substrate cost through the replacement of sapphire with silicon, and (4) reduction in non-ESD yield loss through reductions in wafer bow and temperature variation. The adoption of 150mm GaN/Si processing will also facilitate significant cost reductions in subsequent wafer fabrication manufacturing costs. There were three phases to this project. These three phases overlap in order to aggressively facilitate a commercially available production GaN/Si capability. In Phase I of the project, the repeatability of the performance was analyzed and improvements implemented to the Veeco PVD-AlN prototype system to establish a specification and baseline PVD-AlN films on sapphire and in parallel the evaluation of PVD AlN on silicon substrates began. In Phase II of the project a Beta tool based on a scaled-up process module capable of depositing uniform films on batches of 4”or 6” diameter substrates in a production worthy operation was developed and qualified. In Phase III, the means to increase the throughput of the PVD-AlN system was evaluated and focused primarily on minimizing the impact of the substrate heating and cooling times that dominated the overall cycle time.

  11. "It ain't all as bad as it may seem": young Black lesbians' responses to sexual prejudice.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Reed, Sarah J; Valenti, Maria T

    2012-01-01

    This article explores the ways in which young, Black lesbians manage their sexual minority identity when experiencing sexual prejudice. Fourteen Black lesbians between the ages of 16 and 24 participated in semistructured interviews. Instances of sexual prejudice and the young women's responses were thematically analyzed using open and axial qualitative coding techniques. Results indicated that participants experienced sexual prejudice frequently and even within the lesbian community. Responses to sexual prejudice included: cognitive reframing of heterosexist messages, passing, gaining support from self-created gay families, and fighting back (physically and verbally) in the event of isolated instances of sexual prejudice. Analysis focuses on how gender identity relates to experiences of sexual prejudice and identity management strategies. Findings suggest that there are parallels between the management strategies of these women and young, Black gay and bisexual males and between these women and Black women who are coping with sexism and racism.

  14. Nitric oxide as a mediator of gastrointestinal mucosal injury?—Say it ain't so

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Paul Kubes

    1995-01-01

    Full Text Available Nitric oxide has been suggested as a contributor to tissue injury in various experimental models of gastrointestinal inflammation. However, there is overwhelming evidence that nitric oxide is one of the most important mediators of mucosal defence, influencing such factors as mucus secretion, mucosal blood flow, ulcer repair and the activity of a variety of mucosal immunocytes. Nitric oxide has the capacity to down-regulate inflammatory responses in the gastrointestinal tract, to scavenge various free radical species and to protect the mucosa from injury induced by topical irritants. Moreover, questions can be raised regarding the evidence purported to support a role for nitric oxide in producing tissue injury. In this review, we provide an overview of the evidence supporting a role for nitric oxide in protecting the gastrointestinal tract from injury.

  15. If it ain't broke, don't price fix it: the OFT and the PPRS.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Towse, Adrian

    2007-07-01

    The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) Report on the UK Pharmaceutical Price Regulation Scheme (PPRS) recommends that when the current five-year PPRS expires in 2010 it be replaced with 'value-based pricing' which involves pre-launch centralised government price setting based on a cost-per-QALY threshold plus periodic ex post reviews. I examine the validity of the OFTs criticisms of the existing PPRS, review its proposals and propose an alternative way forward. I conclude that PPRS has performed well as a procurement bargain between industry and the UK government. It does not, however, incentivise efficient relative prices. That is not its job. I identify a number of problems with the OFT proposals. I recommend that key elements of a reformed UK pharmaceutical environment for 2010 should include an expanded role for HTA but with companies retaining freedom to set prices at launch; HTA use targeted via a contingent value of information approach; a retained backstop PPRS, perhaps moving to an RPI-X type control; the use of risk sharing and non-linear pricing arrangements; measures to ensure more effective therapeutic switching at local level; and measures to improve the take up of cost-effective treatments.

    2011-01-01

    The disparity between the cultural and linguistic diversity of the teaching population and the student population continues to grow as teacher education programs enroll and graduate primarily white teacher candidates (83.7%). At the same time, the diversity of the K-12 student body has increased with 65% of public school students being from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (National Center for Education Statistics, 2007). This chasm between the diversity of the teaching force and student population is of concern as many teachers report that they do not have the cultural knowledge and experience of working or living in diverse environments, yet will be faced with teaching a very diverse student population. Hence, the need for teacher candidates and current teachers to be explicitly taught the skills needed to successfully teach diverse student populations is urgent. In this article, we explore the following phenomena: how linguistic and cultural diversity is regarded in teacher education programs, as well as teacher candidates' and current K-12 teachers' dispositions towards students who do not share their cultural backgrounds or language (including those who vary in their dialects). Finally, we will present strategies that teacher educators can use to embrace and empower culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) teacher candidates, as well as prepare teacher candidates to teach diverse student populations.

  18. Your tooth it ain't so purty but it's gen-u-ine: Cole Porter's comic song "Snagtooth Gertie".

    Science.gov (United States)

    Christen, Arden G; Christen, Joan A

    2010-01-01

    Cole Porter (1891-1964), an American musical icon, has been internationally acknowledged as one of the most cosmopolitan, sophisticated, elegant and influential composer-lyricists of the 20th century. Born in Indiana and raised in wealth and privilege, he attended both Yale and Harvard universities where he honed his song-writing skills. In his 800 tunes, many of which became smash hits, he blended fresh, witty, urbane and colloquial lyrics with catchy, singable melodies. He composed musical scores for both Broadway stage and Hollywood movies, but focused on the former. While Porter enjoyed penning comic songs, he rarely had them published. In 1946, Cole wrote the music and lyrics for a Broadway show entitled Around the World in Eighty Days. Deemed a failure, it closed after only 75 performances. One light-hearted ditty, "Snagtooth Gertie", which he composed for the show, was never used. The lyrics are presented for the first time in this paper.
