During Bora Bora treatment, another therapy for OP was not performed. The intermittent use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs was allowed in severe pains. The patients underwent a routine clinical laboratory examination; dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA was used to estimate BMD; the authors determined the intensity of pain in the back and on palpation of paravertebral muscles by the VAS (visual analog scale (in mm, the range of spinal motions, the overall efficiency of treatment, and the presence of adverse reactions. Examinations were made on the day of treatment initiation, following 2 weeks, and at months 1, 2, 3, and 6 of Bora Bora therapy. Results. Increased BMD was noted in all the patients after treatment with Bora Bora (according to the data of DEXA. The effect depended on the timeliness of using the drug. The rate of BMD increase in the lumbar vertebrae was 0,5-2% higher than that in the femoral neck in 50- 70-year-old women. After 70 years of age, the rate of a bone mass increment was much less, particularly in the femoral neck. Conclusion. When Bora Bora was given, there was pain relief and increases in the range of vertebral motions and BMD. Bora Bora was shown to be well tolerated by and to be beneficial to patients with OP.

    2018-02-01

    Bora in Novorossiysk (seaport on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus) is one of the strongest and most prominent downslope windstorms on the territory of Russia. In this paper, we evaluate the applicability of the hydraulic and wave hypotheses, which are widely used for downslope winds around the world, to Novorossiysk bora on the basis of observational data, reanalysis, and mesoscale numerical modeling with WRF-ARW. It is shown that mechanism of formation of Novorossiysk bora is essentially mixed, which is expressed in the simultaneous presence of gravity waves breaking and a hydraulic jump, as well as in the significant variability of the contribution of wave processes to the windstorm dynamics. Effectiveness of each mechanism depends on the elevated inversion intensity and mean state critical level height. Most favorable conditions for both mechanisms working together are moderate or weak inversion and high or absent critical level.

    Bora Bora island, located at the northwestern edge of the Society archipelago represents the upper part of a shield volcano made up of a pile of meter-thick alkali basalt flows and rare hawaiites. The summit caldera (4.4 km in diameter) is still recognizable and a southwestern tilting of the volcanic edifice led to a relative uplift of the northern and eastern parts of the volcano. Bora Bora lavas derive from low partial melting degrees of an EMII mantle source the composition of which was influenced by continental materials. The sub-aerial volcanic activity corresponding to the presently emerged portion of the edifice took place between 3.45 and 3.10 Ma. Such ages are consistent with the formation of the island by being above the society hot spot considered as fixed and a Pacific plate motion of 11 cm.yr -1 . (authors)

  8. Micro-Scale Properties of Different Bora Types

    Full Text Available In this paper we use 20 Hz wind measurements on three levels (2, 5, and 10 m to investigate the differences in micro-scale properties of different bora types, i.e., deep and shallow bora with further subdivision to cyclonic and anticyclonic bora cases. Using Fourier spectral analysis, we investigate a suitable turbulence averaging scale and bora gust pulsations. The obtained data set is further used to test the Monin–Obukhov similarity theory, the surface layer stratification, the behavior of the terms in the prognostic turbulence kinetic energy equation, and the wind profiles. One of our main goals is to identify possible micro-scale differences between shallow and deep bora types because of the possible different mountain wave dynamics in those flows. We found that a turbulence averaging scale of 30 min is suitable for this location and is in agreement with previous bora studies. The wind speed power spectral densities of all selected bora episodes showed pulsations with periods of 2–8 min. This suggests that mountain wave breaking was present in all cases, regardless of flow depth and synoptic type. The stability parameter analysis confirmed the near-neutral thermal stratification of bora; a consequence of intensive mechanical mixing. No significant differences related to bora type were observed in other micro-scale parameters.

    Full Text Available The Bora wind field is characterised by strong vorticity and divergence. Several numerical experiments, in which an oceanographic model was forced with northeasterly winds having climatological alongshore variability, were performed in order to study the influence of spatial variability in the bora wind field on the surface currents in the northern Adriatic. Numerical model results showed that during bora episodes with lower speeds and fast offshore decay surface currents along transect Rovinj - Po River are predominantly in the downwind direction. On the other hand, during bora episodes with strong intensity and slow offshore decay, a cyclonic gyre due to the pronounced bora alongshore variability is formed in the northernmost part of the Adriatic Sea and the studied transect is influenced by the counter currents. Moreover, bora having a high speed and a short offshore range produces the same effect in the eastern part of the Rovinj - Po River transect as low-speed bora characterised by slow offshore decay. Eulerian current measurements performed in the northern Adriatic during bora episodes characterised by different synoptic conditions supported the numerical model findings. Surface currents during the bora episode of 8-11 February 1984 were directed downwind, whereas during the episode of 12-19 February 1984 they were directed upwind. The first episode was characterised by a deep bora layer with cyclonic activity over the western Mediterranean and Genoa Bay, whereas the second one was accompanied by temperature inversion and a southwesterly tropospheric wind above a shallow bora layer. According to the hydraulic theory developed by Smith (1985, an observed descent of isentropes during the second bora episode led to the stronger acceleration in the bora layer and its larger offshore extent. Different offshore bora decays during studied events were confirmed by a comparison of the wind data originating from the meteorological stations

    This paper presents results from a case study carried out on an offshore oil and gas production platform with the purpose to apply and test BORA-Release, a method for barrier and operational risk analysis of hydrocarbon releases. A description of the BORA-Release method is given in Part I of the paper. BORA-Release is applied to express the platform specific hydrocarbon release frequencies for three release scenarios for selected systems and activities on the platform. The case study demonstrated that the BORA-Release method is a useful tool for analysing the effect on the release frequency of safety barriers introduced to prevent hydrocarbon releases, and to study the effect on the barrier performance of platform specific conditions of technical, human, operational, and organisational risk influencing factors (RIFs). BORA-Release may also be used to analyse the effect on the release frequency of risk reducing measures

  17. Bora and Aurora-A continue to activate Plk1 in mitosis.

    Polo-like kinase-1 (Plk1) is required for proper cell division. Activation of Plk1 requires phosphorylation on a conserved threonine in the T-loop of the kinase domain (T210). Plk1 is first phosphorylated on T210 in G2 phase by the kinase Aurora-A, in concert with its cofactor Bora. However, Bora was shown to be degraded prior to entry into mitosis, and it is currently unclear how Plk1 activity is sustained in mitosis. Here we show that the Bora-Aurora-A complex remains the major activator of Plk1 in mitosis. We show that a small amount of Aurora-A activity is sufficient to phosphorylate and activate Plk1 in mitosis. In addition, a fraction of Bora is retained in mitosis, which is essential for continued Aurora-A-dependent T210 phosphorylation of Plk1. We find that once Plk1 is activated, minimal amounts of the Bora-Aurora-A complex are sufficient to sustain Plk1 activity. Thus, the activation of Plk1 by Aurora-A may function as a bistable switch; highly sensitive to inhibition of Aurora-A in its initial activation, but refractory to fluctuations in Aurora-A activity once Plk1 is fully activated. This provides a cell with robust Plk1 activity once it has committed to mitosis.

  18. Bora Bora, Tahaa, and Raiatea, French Polynesia, Landsat and SIR-C Images Compared to SRTM Shaded

    Science.gov (United States)

    2005-01-01

    Bora Bora, Tahaa, and Raiatea (top to bottom) are Polynesian Islands about 220 kilometers (135 miles) west-northwest of Tahiti in the South Pacific. Each of the islands is surrounded by a coral reef and its associated islets ('motus') that enclose a lagoon. Actually, as seen here, Tahaa and Raiatea are close enough together to share a common lagoon and reef. These islands are volcanic in origin and were built up from the sea floor by lava extrusions millions of years ago. None is now active, and all are deeply eroded. This display compares three differing 'views from space' of these islands. On the left, an image from the Landsat 7 satellite shows the islands as they might have appeared to an astronaut in orbit in 1999 (but a little sharper and with atmospheric haze suppressed). In the middle is an image created from data gathered by the third-generation Shuttle Imaging Radar (SIR-C), flown in 1994. On the right is a graphic illustrating elevation data gathered by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) in 2000. Each of these images shows very different information as compared to the other two. Landsat sees clouds, which are almost always above these islands, blocking the view of the terrain. It also readily sees through shallow water down to the reefs. SIR-C sees the waves and other effects of winds upon the ocean surface. It does not look through water to see the reefs, but it clearly separates land and water. It also provides a bolder (but distorted) view of the islands' topographic patterns. With the ability of radar to see through clouds and provision of its own illumination, the SIR-C view is not limited by clouds nor their shadows. SRTM was designed to provide new information that is missing in the Landsat and SIR-C views. Specifically, SRTM created the world's first near-global, detailed elevation model. Natural topographic shading in Landsat imagery and radar topographic shadowing of SIR-C give some evidence of the shape of the ground but do not

  20. Reducing language to rhythm: Amazonian Bora drummed language exploits speech rhythm for long-distance communication

    Science.gov (United States)

    Seifart, Frank; Meyer, Julien; Grawunder, Sven; Dentel, Laure

    2018-04-01

    Many drum communication systems around the world transmit information by emulating tonal and rhythmic patterns of spoken languages in sequences of drumbeats. Their rhythmic characteristics, in particular, have not been systematically studied so far, although understanding them represents a rare occasion for providing an original insight into the basic units of speech rhythm as selected by natural speech practices directly based on beats. Here, we analyse a corpus of Bora drum communication from the northwest Amazon, which is nowadays endangered with extinction. We show that four rhythmic units are encoded in the length of pauses between beats. We argue that these units correspond to vowel-to-vowel intervals with different numbers of consonants and vowel lengths. By contrast, aligning beats with syllables, mora or only vowel length yields inconsistent results. Moreover, we also show that Bora drummed messages conventionally select rhythmically distinct markers to further distinguish words. The two phonological tones represented in drummed speech encode only few lexical contrasts. Rhythm thus appears to crucially contribute to the intelligibility of drummed Bora. Our study provides novel evidence for the role of rhythmic structures composed of vowel-to-vowel intervals in the complex puzzle concerning the redundancy and distinctiveness of acoustic features embedded in speech.

    Twice-yearly child health weeks are an effective way of reaching children with essential child survival services in developing countries. In Kenya, child health weeks, or Malezi Bora, were restructured in 2007 from an outreach-based delivery structure to a health facility-based delivery structure to reduce delivery costs and increase sustainability of the events. Administrative data from 2007 to 2011 have demonstrated a decrease in coverage of Malezi Bora services to targeted children. A post-event coverage (PEC) survey was conducted after the May 2012 Malezi Bora to validate coverage of vitamin A supplementation (VAS) and deworming and to inform program strategy. Nine hundred caregivers with children aged 6-59months were interviewed using a randomized, 30×30 cluster design. For each cluster, one facility-based health worker and one community-based health worker were also interviewed. Coverage of VAS was 31.0% among children aged 6-59months and coverage of deworming was 19.6% among children aged 12-59months. Coverage of VAS was significantly higher for children aged 6-11months (45.7%, n=116) than for children aged 12-59months (28.8%, n=772) (pneeds to be reviewed and reformed to meet WHO guidelines of 80% coverage with VAS.

    α-Amylase is one of the most important enzyme in biotechnology field, especially in industrial application. Thermostability of α-Amylase produced by thermophilic bacteria improves industrial process of starch degradation in starch industry. The present study were concerned to the characterization of α-Amylase activity from indigenous thermophilic bacteria isolated from Bora hot spring, Central Sulawesi. There were 18 isolates which had successfully isolated from 90°C sediment samples of Bora hot spring and 13 of them showed amylolytic activity. The α-Amylase activity was measured qualitatively at starch agar and quantitatively based on DNS (3,5-Dinitrosalicylic acid) methods, using maltose as standard solution. Two isolates (out of 13 amylolytic bacteria), BR 002 and BR 015 showed amylolytic index of 0.8 mm and 0.5 mm respectively, after being incubated at 55°C in the 0.002% Starch Agar Medium. The α-Amylase activity was further characterized quantitatively which includes the optimum condition of pH and temperature of α-Amylase crude enzyme from each isolate. To our knowledge, this is the first report on isolation and characterization of a thermostable α-Amylase from thermophilic bacteria isolated from Central Sulawesi particularly from Bora hot spring.

  4. Sediment Resuspension and Transport During Bora in the Western Adriatic Coastal Current

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mullenbach, B. L.; Geyer, W. R.; Sherwood, C. R.

    2004-12-01

    The Western Adriatic Coastal Current (WACC) is an important agent for along-shelf transport of sediment and fresh water in the western Adriatic Sea. The WACC is driven by a combination of buoyancy forcing from the Po River (northern Adriatic) and wind forcing from northeasterly Bora winds. The large seasonal pulse of freshwater (during the winter) from the Po River influences WACC strength; however, preliminary results from current measurements and model runs indicate that the WACC responds quickly and strongly to Bora wind events, with a strengthening of the current moving southward. Along-margin sediment transport to the south is significantly increased as a result of Bora wind events, presumably because of enhanced wave resuspension and WACC velocity. Elevated sediment fluxes have been observed in both the upper water column (i.e., core of the WACC) and bottom boundary layer (BBL) during these events, which suggests that wind-driven currents may be coupled with the near-bottom transport. This study addresses the interaction of the WACC with the BBL and the impact of this interaction on sediment transport in the western Adriatic. Two benthic tripods were deployed from November 2002 to June 2003 on an across-shelf transect near the Chienti River (at 10 and 20-m water depth), in the region where WACC begins to intensify (200 km south of Po River). Continuous measurements of suspended sediment concentration and current velocity were recorded in the upper-water column and BBL to document sediment transport events. A time series of sediment fluxes and shear velocities (from currents only, u*c; from waves and currents, u*wc) were calculated from these data. Results show that suspended sediment concentrations near the seabed (few cmab) during Bora wind events are strongly correlated with u*wc, which supports a previous hypothesis that wave resuspension (rather than direct fluvial input) is responsible for much of the suspended sediment available for transport southward

    In the title compound, C12H14BN, the complete mol-ecule is generated by a crystallographic twofold axis, with two C atoms, the B atom and the N atom lying on the rotation axis. The dihedral angle between the bora-benzene and pyridine rings is 81.20 (6)°. As well as dative electron donation from the N atom to the B atom [B-N = 1.5659 (18) Å], the methyl substituents on the lutidine ring shield the B atom, which further stabilizes the mol-ecule. In the crystal, weak aromatic π-π stacking between the pyridine rings [centroid-centroid separation = 3.6268 (9) Å] is observed, which generates [001] columns of mol-ecules.

Pedaços de abóbora foram cortados em tamanho de 5 x 10 cm, embalados em bandejas de poliestireno recobertas com filme polivinilcloreto e em embalagem de polietileno de alta densidade a vácuo. O produto foi mantido a 5 e 10 °C por um período de 12 dias. A cada três dias avaliou-se o teor de sólidos solúveis, acidez total titulável, pH, vitamina C e coloração. Os resultados mostraram não haver diferenças significativas entre as duas temperaturas de refrigeração utilizadas na conservação da abóbora. Entretanto, a embalagem com filme PVC permitiu maior conservação dos atributos de qualidade da abóbora até o 9º dia, com exceção da cor, que sofreu menores alterações quando usada embalagem a vácuo.The present work aimed to evaluate the efficiency of different storage temperatures and packing materials for pumpkin fresh cuts. Pumpkin cuts of 5 x 10 cm were packed in polystyrene trays covered with polivynilchloride film or in vacuum high density polyethylene bags. The trays and bags were kept at 5 and 10 °C for 12 days. Soluble solids, total titratable acidity, pH, vitamin C, and color of pumpkin cuts were evaluated every 3 days. The different temperatures did not affect the storage of the pumpkins. However, packaging with PVC film allowed a longer conservation by keeping the pumpkin quality attributes up to the 9th day, except for the color which undergone minor alterations when stored within a vacuum pack.

    1999-02-01

    In this paper we describe the design of the re-configurable front-end boards (BORA boards) for the 82944 channel RICH-1 (Ring Imaging CHerenkov) of the Compass Collaboration (NA58). The front-end electronics controls the sample-and-hold operation after the arrival of an event trigger, acquires the analogue voltages from the pre-amp VLSI and converts them into 10 bits at a rate of 20 Ms/s per analogue channel. After the analog values are digitized they are written into FIFOs. A subsequent operation compares the readings of each and every channel with corresponding programmable thresholds, and transmits those values larger than the threshold, together with the channel number, through an optical fiber to subsequent processing stages of the acquisition system. The overall operation of the board is controlled and supervised by a fast DSP. The availability of local intelligence allows the board to present innovative features such as: to be part of a computer network that connects several similar boards of the detector with a PC. The presence of the DSP allows testing the operability and linearity of the analogue channels; and creating engineering frames containing local temperatures and voltages and transmitting the results through the network. The operator can reconfigure the hardware and software of the board by downloading programs from the PC. (author)

    Most current health professions education programs are focused on the development of clinical skills. As a result, they may not address the complex and interconnected nature of global health. Trainees require relevant clinical, programmatic, and leadership skills to meet the challenges of practicing in an increasingly globalized environment. To develop health care leaders within sub-Saharan Africa, the Afya Bora Consortium developed a one-year fellowship for medical doctors and nurses. Fellows from nine institutions in the United States and sub-Saharan Africa participate in 12 learning modules focused on leadership development and program management. Classroom-based training is augmented with an experiential apprenticeship component. Since 2011, 100 fellows have graduated from the program. During their apprenticeships, fellows developed projects beneficial to their development and to host organizations. The program has developed fellows' skills in leadership, lent expertise to local organizations, and built knowledge in local contexts. Most fellows have returned to their countries of origin, thus building local capacity. U.S.-based fellows examine global health challenges from regional perspectives and learn from sub-Saharan African experts and peers. The Consortium provides ongoing support to alumni through career development awards and alumni network engagement with current and past fellow cohorts. The Consortium expanded from its initial network of five countries to six and continues to seek opportunities for geographical and institutional expansion.

    Full Text Available This article mainly attempted to explore the role of utilizing indigenous medicines in environmental protection among the Maccaa Oromo of Jimma and Iluu Abba bora zone, south-western Ethiopia. To this end, 4 separate interviews with 4 interviewees, 2 focus group discussions with 17 participants, and non-participant field observation were conducted to generate significant and reliable data. Besides, the researchers employed secondary data to make the study more significant and complete. The findings of the study show that since the source of medicines is the environment, the community protects their environment unless the society wouldn’t accessed the natural medicines they need. The study also reveals that most of these folk medicines used by the Maccaa Oromos are from plants. This further indicates the society protects the natural environment to get the plants they use for medication. Thus, folk healing practices are crucial on the one hand to treat illnesses, and to protect the ecosystem on the other hand. However, these societal knowledge is undermined as well as they are being replaced by western (scientific knowledge, modern medicines. These days, our planet is suffering from global warming, wild fire, flooding, drought, and desertification. Averting these threats is impossible without protecting societal environmental indigenous knowledge.

    Full Text Available 'Brasileirinha' é uma cultivar de abóbora (Cucurbita moschata com frutos bicolores que foi desenvolvida com o objetivo de disponibilizar um produto diferenciado devido ao aspecto ornamental e a composição nutricional de seus frutos. Esta cultivar foi selecionada na geração F7, sendo obtida via cruzamentos convencionais entre um acesso de frutos bicolores, provavelmente devido à presença de um alelo do gene B, e a cultivar Mocinha (com frutos imaturos de cor verde uniforme. A característica peculiar da cultivar Brasileirinha é a produção de frutos com casca apresentando uma marcante coloração bicolor (coloração amarela na região proximal e verde na posição distal dos frutos. A polpa apresenta coloração amarela-esverdeada em frutos colhidos imaturos e, à medida que o fruto amadurece, intensifica-se uma coloração alaranjada. Beta-caroteno e luteína são os principais carotenóides presentes em frutos para consumo verde. Em frutos em completo estádio de maturação (polpa laranja intensa verifica-se a acumulação de beta-caroteno e alfa-caroteno (precursores da vitamina A em torno de 243 mg g-1. A cultivar Brasileirinha tem apresentado boa resistência de campo a diferentes raças de oídio (Podosphaera xanthii. Esta cultivar é preferencialmente recomendada para consumo como abobrinha verde (no estádio de fruto imaturo e para fins ornamentais (frutos em todos os estádios. Uma opção é o uso de frutos jovens em conservas. A cultivar Brasileirinha é recomendada para plantio em todas as tradicionais regiões produtoras do país. O sistema de produção para esta cultivar tem sido o mesmo adotado para outros tipos de abóboras.'Brasileirinha' is a squash (Cucurbita moschata cultivar developed by Embrapa Vegetable Crops, with a appealing ornamental appearance and carotenoid composition of its fruits might provide raw material for the development of value-added products targeting new market niches.

    Full Text Available Quality control is the guaranty that experimental error is kept under acceptable levels, and the definition of the proper size and form of experimental plots ensures acurate experimental planning. This paper aims to determine the proper plot size and shape for the culture of the Italian pumpkin in protected environments. Two experiments were set in plastic green house in distinct crop seasons: either Summer-Fall or Winter-Spring season. The experiment comprised eight, 23-m long lines with 20 plants each, and fruit weight was considered the main performance parameter. Estimates of best plots size and shape were obtained by the maximum curvature, variance comparison and Hatheway methods. The plot size and shape varied according to the season and the ideal size and shape, according to the maximum curvature and Hatheway methods, to the Summer-Fall and Winter-Spring seasons, were eight plants (4 ´ 2 plot and four plants (2 ´ 2 plot, respectively.Na experimentação é de fundamental importância o controle de qualidade, fazendo com que o erro experimental apresente-se em níveis aceitáveis e, uma das formas desse controle, é a definição do tamanho e forma ótimos de parcela, no planejamento experimental. Determinou-se o tamanho e a forma ideais de parcela, para a cultura da abóbora italiana, em experimentos realizados sob ambientes protegidos, avaliando-se o rendimento acumulado da fitomassa dos frutos. Foram conduzidos dois experimentos em estufa plástica, modelo arco pampeano, durante o ano de 2001, em duas épocas de cultivo, um na estação sazonal verão-outono e outro na estação sazonal inverno-primavera. Os experimentos foram constituídos de oito fileiras de 20m de comprimento, sendo que, em cada uma delas, foram alocadas 20 plantas. As estimativas do tamanho e da forma de parcela foram obtidas pelos métodos da máxima curvatura, da comparação das variâncias e de Hatheway. As estimativas do tamanho e da forma da parcela variaram

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar a influência dos processamentos térmicos sobre os nutrientes e propriedades funcionais das sementes da abóbora Cucurbita maxima. As sementes foram, em quatro repetições, submetidas aos seguintes processamentos: utilizadas na forma crua; cozidas em água em ebulição por três tempos: 5, 10 e 15 minutos; e cozidas no vapor por 10 minutos. Posteriormente foram liofilizadas, trituradas e armazenadas em temperatura ambiente até a realização das análises de composição centesimal, minerais e propriedades funcionais. Não houve diferença significativa entre os processamentos para os níveis de proteína bruta, fibra alimentar, extrato etéreo, cinzas, S, P, Mg, Ca, Cu, Zn, solubilidade do nitrogênio (nos pH 4, 5 e 6, absorção de água e óleo, volume de espuma e estabilidade de emulsão. O cozimento em água em ebulição reduziu o teor de K. Todos os processamentos térmicos diminuíram os níveis de Mn e Fe. As sementes cruas apresentaram a maior solubilidade do nitrogênio nos pH 2, 3, 7, 8 e 9. Conclui-se que os processamentos acarretaram diferença significativa apenas nos teores de K, Mn, Fe e solubilidade do nitrogênio; e que as sementes apresentam potencial para serem incorporadas, provavelmente, em alimentos que requeiram elevada taxa de absorção de óleo.The objective of this paper was to verify the influence of the thermal processings on the nutrients and functional properties of the pumpkin seeds Cucurbita maxima. Seeds were, in four repetitions, submitted to the following processings: used in the raw form; cooked in boiling water for three times: 5, 10 and 15 minutes; and cooked in steam for 10 minutes. Thereafter were freeze-dried, grinded and stored at room temperature up to accomplishment of the analyses of centesimal composition, minerals and functional properties. There wasn't significant difference among the processings to the levels of crude protein, dietary fiber, ether

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho visou estudar experimentalmente a cinética de secagem a vácuo de cenoura e abóbora "in natura" e pré-tratadas por branqueamento e congelamento. Os ensaios experimentais foram conduzidos em um secador a vácuo, nas pressões de 5, 15 e 25 kPa e temperaturas de 50, 60 e 70°C. Estudou-se a influência da pressão e temperatura assim como os pré-tratamentos adotados sobre a cinética de secagem. A análise do efeito dos pré-tratamentos e dos parâmetros pressão e temperatura sobre a velocidade de secagem revelou que os melhores valores foram obtidos com a temperatura de 70°C e pressão de 5 kPa para as amostras prétratadas por congelamento. Quanto ao tipo de matéria-prima utilizado, a abóbora apresentou maiores velocidades de secagem que a cenoura, independentemente do tratamento recebido e da condição de secagem utilizada. As curvas experimentais de secagem foram ajustadas ao modelo difusional de Fick para uma placa plana infinita.In this work it was studied experimentally the kinetics of drying of carrot and pumpkin under vacuum drying in nature and pre-treatment by freezing and bleaching. The experimental runs were driven in a dryer under vacuum, at pressures of 5, 15 and 25 kPa and temperatures of 50, 60 and 70°C. The influences on the drying kinetics of the pressures and temperature were studied, as well as the effect of adopting pre-treatment. It was observed that the best values were obtained at the temperature of 70°C and pressure of 5 kPa for the samples pretreatment by freezing. As concerns to the raw material employed, pumpkin presented higher drying speeds than the one shown by carrot, independently of the treatment received and of the operational condition of drying. The experimental curves of drying were adjusted to the difusional model of Fick for an infinite slab.

    Full Text Available Composting is a bio-oxidative process involving numerous and varied microorganisms, whose population dynamics are influenced by the type of organic substrate used. In order to quantify fungal and actinomycetes populations and identifying fungi present during the composting process, three compost were developed with the inclusion of different organic materials, differing by the inclusion of fibrous substrates water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes, coffee husks and garden waste. Three metal composters were used with dimensions: 62.5 x 77.5 x 75.0 cm. The statistical design was a randomized block with repeated measurements over time, with treatments from a 3x3 factorial arrangement, three types of compost, three evaluation times (20, 40 and 60 days and three repetitions. The values obtained were transformed to log10 and an analysis of variance was performed; means were compared by Tukey test at 5% probability. The fungi count was elevated at the beginning and during the course of composting for compost based on garden waste and bora. The most frequent fungi species identified during the composting process were Aspergillus sp., Mucor sp. and Penicillium sp. Stocks of actinomycetes fell at the end of the composting process in all composts.

    Specific boronic acids are generally powerful tetrahedral intermediate/transition state analogue inhibitors of serine amidohydrolases. This group of enzymes includes bacterial β-lactamases and DD-peptidases where there has been considerable development of boronic acid inhibitors. This paper describes the synthesis, determination of the inhibitory activity, and analysis of the results from two α-(2-thiazolidinyl) boronic acids that are closer analogues of particular tetrahedral intermediates involved in β-lactamase and DD-peptidase catalysis than those previously described. One of them, 2-[1-(dihydroxyboranyl)(2-phenylacetamido)methyl]-5,5-dimethyl-1,3-thiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid, is a direct analogue of the deacylation tetrahedral intermediates of these enzymes. These compounds are micromolar inhibitors of class C β-lactamases but, very unexpectedly, not inhibitors of class A β-lactamases. We rationalize the latter result on the basis of a new mechanism of boronic acid inhibition of the class A enzymes. A stable inhibitory complex is not accessible because of the instability of an intermediate on its pathway of formation. The new boronic acids also do not inhibit bacterial DD-peptidases (penicillin-binding proteins). This result strongly supports a central feature of a previously proposed mechanism of action of β-lactam antibiotics, where deacylation of β-lactam-derived acyl-enzymes is not possible because of unfavorable steric interactions.

    To my way of thinking the most significant milestone of the present meeting is the substantial body of evidence that has been presented on the hydromagnetic stabilization of open-ended systems. The success of minimum magnetic-field ('minimum-B') configurations in stabilizing a plasma marks one more area where theory and experiment in the field of plasma physics have been brought together with gratifying results. Let me go back a little into history and discuss the gradual growth of our information on hydromagnetic instabilities generally. Many of you will remember that hydromagnetic theory was applied to the self-pinched discharge in the early years of the controUed fusion programme. The predictions of this theory were very shortly fulfilled by the observations; the effects were so unmistakable that it was not difficult to compare the theory with the observations. On the streak pictures of the linear or toroidal discharges that were obtained in those early years one saw clearly the diffuse plasma column, which first contracted to a narrow filament and then started to distort and kink until finally it hit the wall. Under some conditions the plasma was observed to break up into a series of blobs like a string of sausages. Since the behaviour was exactly what the theory had predicted, it took no very great experimental wisdom to conclude that observations had confirmed theory.

    Full Text Available Цель. Оценка эффективности внедрения алгоритмов лечения больных СД в условиях сложившейся системы медицинской помощи пациентам в Санкт-Петербурге (программа "Диастандарт". Материалы и методы. В исследование включено 50 больных диабетом 1 типа (СД1 и 60 пациентов с СД 2 типа (СД2. Согласно процедуре рандомизации центров пациенты были разделены на 2 группы: основная ? лечение по алгоритмам "Диастандарта" - 80 больных; контрольная ? "традиционное" наблюдение больных диспансерной группы ? 30 больных. Лечение пациентов основной группы регламентировалось разработанными алгоритмами терапии СД "Диастандарт". Период включения продолжался с ноября 1999 г. по январь 2000 г. Продолжительность исследования 6 мес. Результаты. Гликемия натощак и после еды в обеих группах достоверно не различалась, уровень HbAl в основной группе был выше, чем в контрольной (8,3 и 7,8. Средний уровень АД по группам был удовлетворительным. В обеих группах получено достоверное снижение постпрандиальной гликемии и гликемии натощак. Тяжелых гипогликемии отмечено не было. Динамика уровня HbAl в группах свидетельствовала об улучшении состояния углеводного обмена у больных, получавших лечение по алгоритмам "Диастандарта", в то время как у пациентов контрольной группы таких изменений не было. Не было выявлено статистически значимых изменений индекса массы тела, биохимических показателей, случаев прогрессирования диабетической ретинопатии. При СД1 интенсивность наблюдения больных, получавших лечение по алгоритмам "Диастандарта", оказалась выше, чем в контрольной группе (7,3 визита/1 больной/6 мес. и 5,2 визита/1 больной/6 мес. У больных СД2, получавших традиционную терапию, наблюдение было более интенсивным: в основной группе ? 6,8 визита/1 больной/6 мес , в контрольной ? 7,6 визита/1 больной/6 мес. Наибольшее снижение гликемии в обеих группах произошло в первые 3 мес. лечения. Выводы. В данной работе эффективность "традиционной" тактики ведения больных СД на амбулаторном этапе сравнивали с лечением по алгоритмам (стандартизованное лечение в открытом исследовании с рандомизацией центров. Показано преимущество стандартизованного лечения перед традиционным подходом, которое выражалось в положительной динамике уровня НвА1 в этой группе по сравнению с контрольной. Стандартизованное лечение не сопровождается существенной интенсификацией наблюдения. Улучшение показателей углеводного обмена при применении алгоритмов лечения не сопровождается значимым увеличением дозы инсулина и пероральных сахароснижающих препаратов. Целесообразно внедрение стандартизованного лечения в клиническую практику с предварительной адаптацией к местным условиям.

  18. Phospholipase A2 from Bothrops alternatus (víbora de la cruz) venom. Purification and some characteristic properties.

    One single protein species with phospholipase activity has been isolated from Bothrops alternatus venom by a procedure involving gel-filtration on Sephadex G-50 (Step 1), chromatography on SP-Sephadex C-50 (Step 2) and gel-filtration on Sephadex G-75 (Step 3). The purified sample behaved as a homogeneous, monodisperse protein with a molecular weight of 15,000 and isoelectric point of 5.04. The yield in enzyme activity was 48% of the starting material and the apparent purification was 51-fold. When assayed on 1,2-diheptanoyl- or 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphorylcholine, fatty acids and lysolecithins were the only reaction products, in accordance with the predicted stoichiometry. Studies on positional specificity suggested that the enzyme is a phospholipase A2. The enzyme requires Ca2+ ions for activity and exhibited stereochemical specificity, since the enantiomeric 2, 3-diheptanoyl-sn-glycero-1-phosphorylcholine was not hydrolyzed. Under the experimental conditions employed, reaction products representative of either phospholipase B or C activities could not be detected. After Step 1, the phospholipase activity recovered was higher than the total activity in the crude venom sample, which is explained by the separation of an inhibitor during enzyme purification. The inhibitor was responsible for the initial lag period that characterized the kinetics of the enzyme reaction with crude venom acting on aggregated substrates (lipoprotein, vesicles or micelles), while the rate of hydrolysis of monomeric lecithins was not affected.

    Results of economical studies in the field of rational application of different methods of processing of low- and middle-active RAW are presented. They are as follows: burning, compaction, metal decontamination by chemical treatment and remelting, hardening of RAW. It is shown that efficient use of the processes of burning, supercompaction, chemical and pyrodecontamination of metal may be achieved only when processing considerable amounts of waste under conditions of a single Centre for processing and burial of RAW.

    Radiation treatments of fruits and vegetables after harvest have evoked much interest for the control of market diseases, insect infestation, delay of ripening and prevention of growth. Radiation as a fungicidal treatment is of special interest because of its therapeutic action. Unfortunately, the dose is often severely limited by host sensitivity. The tolerance to irradiation varies; among species and varieties and is influenced by ripeness at time of treatment. If destined for storage, commodities may be limited to a low dose because of delayed adverse effects. The suppression of a pathogen depends primarily on its sensitivity and the extent of lesion development. Commonly a large portion of small fungus lesions are inactivated while others are delayed. To date, radiation treatments have been most promising where disease problems were most serious, as in the treatment of highly perishable commodities that are harvested when ripe and contain established disease lesions when picked. Presumably the fungicidal effect of radiation treatments could be greatly improved if pathogens could be made more sensitive, the host more resistant, or both. Use of a localized oxygen effect, chemical sensitization of pathogens, or shallow irradiation have presented formidable difficulties. More promise has been shown by combinations of radiation and heat which provide a striking synergism when used to inactivate fungi. Gamma-irradiation inhibits ripening of some fruits but is stimulatory to others. In those fruits which are caused to ripen more rapidly by irradiation, ethylene production is stimulated. Fruits in which ripening is inhibited by irradiation apparently have a reduced sensitivity to the ripening action of ethylene, and also produce less ethylene before ripening. At doses of 20 to 35 krad, ripening is inhibited in bananas for 4 to 15 days depending on maturity and the amount of mechanical injury to the fruit. Irradiated fruits ripen to good quality when given a standard ethylene treatment. Peaches and nectarines subjected to doses of gamma rays that might retard rots are excessively susceptible to transit injury. Papaya fruits show promise for gamma-ray control of the Hawaiian fruit fly. Irradiated fruits have 3 to 5 days longer shelf-life than fruits subjected to ethylene dibromide fumigation. The present outlook for the radiation treatment of various fruits and vegetables is discussed. (author) [French] On s'interesse beaucoup au fait que l'irradiation des fruits et legumes apres la recolte permet de lutter contre les maladies affectant la commercialisation, de detruire les insectes qui y sont presents, de retarder la maturation et de prevenir la germination. L'action fongicide des rayonnements est particulierement interessante en raison de ses effets therapeutiques. Malheureusement, dans de nombreux cas, la dose applicable est considerablement reduite par la sensibilite de l'hote. La tolerance a l'irradiation varie suivant l'espece et la variete, et elle est fonction du degre de maturation au moment du traitement. Si les denrees alimentaires sont destinees a etre enmagasinees, il est parfois necessaire de n'utiliser qu'une faible dose de rayonnements, pour eviter des effets nuisibles differes. La suppression d'un agent pathogene est essentiellement fonction de sa sensibilite aux rayonnements et du degre d'alteration. En regle generale, dans le cas des alterations de faible etendue provoquees par des champignons, une grande partie des organismes pathogenes sont inactives et les autres se developpent plus lentement. A ce jour, l'irradiation a donne les meilleurs resultats dans les cas ou les problemes poses par la presence d'organismes pathogenes etaient particulierement graves, par exemple, pour le traitement des denrees tres perissables que l'on recolte lorsqu'elles sont parvenues a maturation et qui presentent des alterations bien definies au moment de la recolte. Il est probable que l'effet fongicide de l'irradiation pourrait etre considerablement accru en augmentant la sensibilite des organismes pathogenes ou la resistance de l'hote, ou les deux a la fois. L'utilisation d'un effet localise de l'oxygene, la sensibilisation des organismes pathogenes par des produits chimiques ou l'irradiation a faible profondeur soulevent de tres grandes difficultes. Il serait plus facile de combiner l'action des rayonnements et celle de la chaleur, qui se conjuguent de maniere remarquable lorsqu'on les utilise pour inactiver des champignons. L'irradiation gamma inhibe la maturation de certains fruits mais stimule celle d'autres fruits. Les fruits qui murissent plus rapidement lorsqu'ils sont exposes aux rayonnements produisent egalement une plus grande quantite d'ethylene. Les fruits dont la maturation est inhibee par l'irradiation semblent moins sensibles a l'action maturatrice de l'ethylene et produisent egalement moins d'ethylene avant d'arriver a maturation. A des doses de 20 a 35 krad, la maturation des bananes est inhibee pendant 4 a 15 jours suivant le degre de maturation et l'etendue des dommages mecaniques subis par le fruit. Les fruits irradies atteignent un degre de maturation satisfaisant lorsqu'ils sont soumis a un traitement standard a l'ethylene. Les peches et brugnons soumis a des doses de rayons gamma qui pourraient retarder le pourrissement sont excessivement susceptibles d'alteration en cours de transpon. Il semble qu'en soumettant les papayes aux rayons gamma on pourra les proteger contre les effets de la mouche hawa'ienne des fruits. Apres cueillette, les fruits irradies peuvent etre conserves pendant 3 a 5 jours de plus que les fruits soumis a la fumigation par le dibromure d'ethylene. Le memoire etudie les perspectives actuellement offertes par l'irradiation de differents fruits et legumes. (author) [Spanish] La irradiacion de frutas y verduras despues de su recoleccion ha despertado gran interes por la posibilidad que ofrece de combatir las enfermedades de los productos vegetales durante su distribucion, eliminar los insectos parasitos, retardar la maduracion e impedir que germinen. La irradiacion ofrece especial interes como tratamiento fungicida por su efecto terapeutico. Pero por desgracia, la sensibilidad del portador suele limitar considerablemente la dosis. La tolerancia a las radiaciones es distinta de unas especies y variedades a otras y depende del grado de madurez en el momento de la irradiacion. Si los productos vegetales han de ser almacenados, la dosis que se les administra suele ser baja, debido a los efectos nocivos retardados. La eliminacion de un agente patogeno depende sobre todo de su sensibilidad y de la magnitud de las lesiones. Corrientemente se inactiva gran parte de las pequenas lesiones causadas por los hongos, mientras que se retarda el desarrollo de otras. Hasta la fecha, los tratemientos por irradiacion han sido mas eficaces cuando las enfermedades han presentado mayor gravedad, como en el caso de los productos altamente perecederos que se cosechan en estado de madurez y presentan lesiones patologicas caracterizadas en el momento de la recoleccion. Al parecer, el efecto fungicida de la irradiacion se intensificaria considerablemente si fuera posible incrementar la sensibilidad de los agentes patogenos, la resistencia del portador, o ambas cosas a la vez. El empleo de oxigenantes localizados, la sensibilizacion de los agentes patogenos por via quimica o mediante irradiacion en bajas dosis presentan enormes dificultades. Mejores perspectivas ofrece la combinacion de la irradiacion y del tratamiento termico, cuya accion concertada, cuando se utilizan para inactivar hongos, es sumamente eficaz. Las radiaciones gamma inhiben la maduracion de algunas frutas pero estimulan la de otras. Las frutas que maduran mas rapidamente por irradiacion producen mayor cantidad de etileno. Las frutas cuya maduracion se inhibe por irradiacion tienen, en apariencia, menor sensibilidad al efecto madurador del etileno y, ademas, producen menos etileno antes de madurar. Las dosis de 20 a 35 krad inhiben la maduracion de los platanos de 4 a 15 dias, segun el grado de sazon y la importancia delas deteriora-, ciones mecanicas sufridas por la fruta. Las frutas irradiadas sometidas a un tratamiento tipo con etileno maduran en buenas condiciones. Los melocotones y persicos sometidos a dosis de rayos gamma capaces de retardar la putrefaccion son muy sensibles a los danos debidos al transporte. La irradiacion de papayas con rayos gamma para eliminar la mosca de la fruta de Hawaii presenta perspectivas alentadores. El periodo de almacenamiento de las frutas irradiadas es de 3 a 5 dias mayor que el de las frutas sometidas a fumigacion con dibromuro de etileno. En ia memoria se examinan las perspectivas que ofrece la irradiacion de varias frutas y verduras.

    Excitation energy transfer in benzene solutions of monomers, polymers and copolymers has been studied by observations on the quenching of terphenyl fluorescence produced by gamma radiation. The ease of energy transfer from benzene to various monomers is conjugated monomers > unconjugated > monomers > corresponding saturated compounds. Quenching experiments were also carried out using polymer solutions in benzene. The order of efficiencies was crepe rubber > polystyrene > polyvinyl acetate > acrylic polymers. The results obtained for quenching by a styrene-methyl methacrylate copolymer indicated that the specific quenching efficiency of the styrene units in the copolymer was less than in the homopolymer. The gamma ray initiated polymerisation of styrene in methylene dichloride solutions at low temperature was studied. The results obtained for the dependence of polymerisation rate on intensity are consistent with an ionic mechanism. The composition of the copolymer obtained with methyl methacrylate also supports this view. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont etudie la transmission de l'energie d'excitation dans les solutions de benzene du fait de la presence de monomeres, polymeres et copolymeres, en etudiant l'extinction de la fluorescence du terphenyle induite par rayons gamma. On peut classer les divers monomeres en trois categories selon l'ordre de facilite avec laquelle l'energie du benzene leur est transmise : monomeres conjugues, monomeres non conjugues, composes satures correspondants. Les auteurs ont egalement fait des experiences sur des polymeres dans une solution de benzene. L'efficacite va en decroissant dans l'ordre suivant: caoutchouc naturel, polystyrolene, acetate de polyvinyle, polymere acrylique. Les resultats obtenus pour le copolymere styrolene-methacrylate de methyle montrent que l'efficacite d'extinction du styrolene est plus faible dans le cas des copolymeres que dans le cas des homopolymeres. Les auteurs ont etudie la polymerisation du styrolene amorcee au moyen de rayons gamma dans une solution de dichlorure de methylene a basse temperature. Le rapport direct constate entre la vitesse de polymerisation et l'intensite repond a une caracteristique du mecanisme de polymerisation ionique. La composition du copolymere obtenu avec le methacrylate de methyle vient egalement a l'appui de cette hypothese. (author) [Spanish] Observando la extincion de la luminiscencia del terienilo inducida por los rayos gamma, se ha estudiado el proceso de transmision de la energia de excitacion en soluciones bencenicas de monomeros, polimeros y copolimeros. La facilidad con que la energia se transmite del benceno a los diversos monomeros responde al siguiente orden decreciente: monomeros conjugados > monomeros no conjugados > compuestos saturados correspondientes. Tambien se realizaron experimentos sobre la extincion de la luminiscencia utilizando polimeros disueltos en benceno. El poder de extincion de los polimeros disminuye con arreglo al siguiente orden: caucho natural > poliestireno > acetato de polivinilo > polimeros acrilicos. Los resultados obtenidos al emplear un copolimero de estireno-metacrilato de metilo indicaron que el poder extintor especifico de los grupos estireno del copolimero es inferior al observado en el caso del homopolimero. La polimerizacion inducida por rayos gamma del estireno disuelto en diclorometileno tambien se estudio a bajas temperaturas. Los resultados obtenidos en lo que se refiere a la relacion existente entre la velocidad de polimerizacion y la intensidad de irradiacion parecen indicar que el mecanismo es de naturaleza ionica. La composicion del copolimero obtenido a partir de metacrilato de metilo tambien corrobora esta opinion.

    Full Text Available With rising levels of CO2 in atmosphere, understanding possible impacts on development and growth of plants becomes increasingly important. The aim of this study was to evaluate interaction between different temperatures and CO2 levels in germination and early development of seedlings of different species of pumpkin. Seeds of Cucurbita pepo cultivars ‘Caserta’ and ‘Redonda’, and Cucurbita maxima ‘Coroa’ were sown in trays of 36 cells and held in growth chambers with different combinations of levels of CO2 and day/night temperatures. The experimental design was completely randomized in a 2 X 3 factorial scheme with two levels of CO2 concentration (360 and 550ppm and three day/night temperatures (26/20, 29/26 and 32/26°C, with four replicates of 18 seedlings for each treatment. CO2 levels used caused different effects among cultivars for most variables, but a significant change in physiological behavior of seedlings with increasing CO2 concentration was not observed. Increase in temperature led to physiological changes in both seeds and seedlings. The predicted conditions of increasing concentration of atmospheric CO2 and temperature are damaging to production of pumpkin seedlings

    In Burkina Faso, prolonged breastfeeding with introduction of ritual fluids from birth is a deep-seated norm. We explored HIV-infected mothers' views and experiences of the acceptability and feasibility of the World Health Organization's recommended infant-feeding options within a mother-to-child-transmission prevention trial. A qualitative study was conducted on 17 formula-feeding and 19 breastfeeding mothers, from a larger cohort of 51 eligible HIV-infected women, consenting to participate in separate focus group discussions in early post-partum. Mothers opted for breastfeeding essentially out of fear of family rejection. Most of them were afraid of denigration for disrespecting tradition if they formula-fed or being suspected of HIV infection. Achieving exclusive breastfeeding remained a difficult challenge as they engaged in a continuous struggle with close elders to avoid fluid feeding. Additional stress and fatigue were fed by their perception of a high transmission risk through breast milk. Exclusive formula-feeding seemed easier to implement, especially as formula was provided free of charge. Formula-feeding mothers more frequently had a supportive partner, a strong personality and lived in better socio-economic conditions than breastfeeding mothers (76% had education and electricity supply vs. 42%, respectively). Exclusive breastfeeding for the first 6 months remains the most appropriate option for many HIV-infected mothers in sub-Saharan Africa. Its acceptability and feasibility urgently need to be improved by promoting it as the best feeding option for all infants. Other crucial interventions are the promotion of voluntary counselling and testing for couples, and greater partner involvement in infant-feeding counselling.

    Critical boron concentration before and after postulated loss of coolant accident with long-term cooling recirculation was calculated for cycle 6 of Krsko NPP. The limiting boron concentration curve of containment sump was calculated for equilibrium conditions. The results were analysed and showed that the boron concentration in refueling water storage tank and in safety injection accumulators should be increased from 2000 to 2100 ppm in 6th cycle. In the consequence corresponding chapters of the NPP Krsko technical Specifications were changed as well. (author)

    Increasing recourse is being had to the scintigraphic method of morphological exploration of the amoebic liver owing to the frequency of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis and to the difficulties of clinical and paraclinical diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the organ. The method yields data of great importance in this field. The authors quote the statistics of examinations they have carried out and endeavour to draw conclusions from them. They describe the examination technique from the following points of view: (a) The choice of materials (I{sup 131}-labelled Rose Bengal and Au{sup 198} in colloidal solution) with their advantages and disadvantages; (b) The apparatus used, with special reference to the problem of collimation; (c) Actual performance of the examination, involving a functional study and the scintigram itself, which has to be carried out from different angles; (d) Repetition of the examination after an interval of several months. The authors then deal with the scintigraphic semiology of hepatic localizations of amoebiasis; they analyse the elementary abnormal images, study their topography, and describe their associations in the case of hepatitis and in cases of amoebic abscess. They then study the development of these images with time and report a number of cases for which the scintigraphic examination was repeated after an interval of several weeks or months. Finally, they enunciate the indications for application of the method, which provides essential data for the positive diagnosis of amoebic abscess of the liver and for topographical and morphological diagnosis (of particular interest surgically), and which makes it possible to observe the progress of the disease and the healing of the abscess after medical treatment. (author) [French] La methode scintigraphique est de plus en plus sollicitee pour l'exploration morphologique du foie amibien en raison de la frequence des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase et des difficultes du diagnostic clinique et paraclinique de l'abces amibien du foie. La methode fournit dans ce domaine des renseignements d'interet majeur. Les auteurs rapportent la statistique des examens qu'ils ont effectues et se proposent de tirer les conclusions de ces examens. Ils decrivent la technique d'examen envisageant successivement: a) Le probleme du choix des produits (rose bengale marque avec {sup 131}I et {sup 198}Au en solution colloiedale), en soulignant leurs avantages et inconvenients respectifs; b) L'appareillage utilise en insistant sur le probleme de la collimation; c) Le deroulement de l'examen qui comporte une etude fonctionnelle et la scintigraphie proprement dite effectuee necessairement sous plusieurs incidences; d) La repetition de l'examen a plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Les auteurs traitent ensuite de la semiologie scintigraphique des localisations hepatiques de l'amibiase; ils analysent les images anormales elementaires; etudient leur topographie et decrivent les associations de ces images dans le cas d'hepatite et dans les cas d'abces amibien. Ils etudient l'evolution de ces images dans le temps, en rapportant un certain nombre de cas pour lesquels l'examen scintigraphique a ete repete a plusieurs semaines ou plusieurs mois d'intervalle. Enfin, ils degagent les indications de la methode qui apporte des renseignements essentiels pour preciser le diagnostic positif des abces amibiens du foie et pour le diagnostic topographique et morphologique (particulierement interessant sur le plan chirurgical), et qui permet de suivre l'evolution de la maladie et d'apprecier la guerison des abces apres traitement medical. (author) [Spanish] Las amibiasis se localizan con gran frecuencia en el higado y los abscesos que producen son dificiles de diagnosticar clinica o paraclinicamente.

Los autores exponen los resultados estadisticos de los examenes que han efectuado y las conclusiones correspondientes. Describen la tecnica de examen considerando, sucesivamente: a) el problema de la eleccion de los productos (Rosa Bengala marcadb con {sup 131}I; {sup 198}Au en solucion coloidal) senalando sus ventajas e inconvenientes; b) los aparatos empleados, insistiendo en el problema de la colimacion; c) el desarrollo del examen, que comprende un examen funcional y la centelleografia propiamente dicha efectuada, necesariamente, desde varias proyecciones; d) la repeticion del examen a intervalos de varios meses. A continuacion, los autores tratan de la semiologia centelleograueca de las amibiasis hepaticas, analizan las imagenes anormales elementales, examinan su topografia y describen las asociaciones de esas imagenes en el caso de la hepatitis y en el de los abscesos amibianos. Estudian la evolucion temporal de esas imagenes y dan informacion sobre un cierto numero de casos en que el examen centelleografico se repitio a intervalos de varias semanas o de varios meses. Por ultimo, senalan en que casos esta indicado este metodo, que facilita datos esenciales para precisar el diagnostico positivo de los abscesos hepaticos amibianos y su diagnostico topografico y morfologico, particularmente interesante desde el punto de vista quirurgico, y que permite seguir la evolucion de la enfermedad y apreciar la curacion de los abscesos despues del tratamiento medico.

    Numerous researchers have been studying the liquid-phase autoxidation by molecular oxygen of compounds containing a mercapto group. It has been stated that, in the course of the reaction, sulphide is formed, but the exact mechanism of this process has not been determined. The oxidation of mercaptoacetic acid, at 50{sup o}C and at a pH of 8, was investigated both in the presence of Complexon IV and in the presence of iron-ions. Na{sub 2}S, labelled with S{sup 35}, was introduced into the system and it was determined that this sulphide considerably increases the rate of the oxygen uptake both in the processes catalysed by trivalent iron and free of iron-ions. In the course of the reaction the concentration of the sulphide, its specific activity and its total activity were measured. In using these data and on the basis of the kinetic isotopic method developed by Neiman and co-workers, it was possible to calculate the rate of sulphide formation and its further oxidation. In comparing these data with other kinetic data, it is shown that the oxidation of mercaptoacetic acid in the liquid phase is a branching chain reaction; one of its principal chains being the formation of Na{sub 2}S and its further oxidation. Moreover, it was determined that sulphate is formed in the course of the reaction only through the inorganic sulphide. Iron-ions catalyse the formation of organic disulphide and therefore also have influence on the sulphide formation. (author) [French] De nombreux chercheurs ont etudie l'autoxydation des composes contenant un groupe mercaptan par l'oxygene moleculaire en phase liquide. Ils ont trouve qu'il y avait formation de sulfure au cours de la reaction, mais le mecanisme exact de ce processus n'a pas ete determine. L'oxydation de l'acide mercaptoacetique a 50{sup o}C et pour un pH de 8 a ete etudiee en presence de complexone IV et egalement; en presence de fer. Du Na{sub 2}S marque au {sup 35}S a ete introduit dans le systeme et on a constate que le Na{sub 2}S augmentait considerablement le taux d'absorption d'oxygene, tant dans le processus de catalysation par le fer qu'en l'absence de fer. Au cours de la reaction, on a mesure la concentration du sulfure, son activite specifique et son activite totale. En. partant de ces donnees, et en utilisant la methode d'etude cinetique au moyen d'isotopes, mise au point par Neiman et ses collaborateurs, on a pu calculer le taux de formation de sulfure et le taux de son oxydation ulterieure. La comparison de ces donnees avec d'autres donnees cinetiques revele que l'oxydation de l'acide mercaptoacetique en phase liquide est une reaction en chaine ramifiee, l'un des principaux elements de cette chaine etant la formation de Na{sub 2}S et son oxydation ulterieure. On a constate en outre qu'il se forme du sulfate, lors de la reaction, mais seulement a partir du sulfure mineral. Le fer catalyse la formation de disulfure organique et, de ce fait, influe aussi sur la formation de sulfure. (author) [Spanish] Numerosos investigadores han estudiado la autooxidacion en fase liquida, por oxigeno molecular, de compuestos que contienen un grupo mercaptano; si bien han llegado a la conclusion de que se forman sulfuros en el curso de la reaccion, el mecanismo exacto del proceso no se conoce. Los autores estudiaron la autooxidacion del acido mercaptoacetico a 50{sup o} C y pH 8 en presencia de complexon IV y de hierro. Anadieron al sistema Na{sub 2}S marcado con {sup 35}S y comprobaron que este compuesto aumenta notablemente la velocidad de absorcion de oxigeno tanto en las reacciones catalizadas por hierro como en las que transcurren en ausencia de iones de este metal. En el curso de la reaccion, los autores midieron la concentracion del sulfuro, su actividad especifica y su actividad total. Gracias a estos datos y empleando el metodo isotopico cinetico establecido por Neiman y colaboradores, pudieron calcular la velocidad de formacion del sulfuro y la velocidad de su oxidacion subsiguiente. Por comparacion de esos resultados con otros datos cineticos, se puede demostrar que la autooxidacion del acido mercaptoacetico en fase liquida constituye una reaccion en cadena ramificada, una de cuyas ramas principales es la formacion de Na{sub 2}S y su oxidacion subsiguiente. Los autores tambien comprobaron que el sulfato que aparece durante la reaccion, procede exclusivamente del sulfuro inorganico. El hierro cataliza la formacion de disulfuro organico y, por lo tanto, ejerce tambien influencia sobre la formacion del sulfuro.

    Marinated herring fillets are a fish product matured under the action of acetic acid and salt and marketed in a spiced brine containing about 3% salt and acetic acid (pH 4). Since the usual addition of the preservative hexamethylene-tetramine has been restricted to a limited period of time by the new German food law, investigations were made on pasteurization by means of ionizing rays, as a new method of preservation without the addition of other preservatives. Decay of this food product was caused by heterofermentative lactic-acid bacteria, which decarboxy- lated the amino acids set free from the protein; the decay was a result of carbon dioxide bombardment. The marinades were packed into flat tins holding about 125 g, and exposed to {sup 60}Co gamma rays from an under-water source, while being cooled. The shelf life of the tinned marinades was extended by the irradiation. The period up to bombardment at 15 Degree-Sign C was three times as long as usual in cases of irradiation with 155 krad. The critical number of 1 million germs per ml at 15 Degree-Sign C was also reached after a period three times as long as usual upon irradiation with 160 krad. The LD{sub 99} of three isolated strains of lactic-acid bacteria irradiated in a salt-peptone solution was 113, 165 and 144 krad, respectively. Since at 15 Degree-Sign C the growth of the germs is retarded, while at 20 Degree-Sign C it is practically unrestrained, the period of durability at a storage temperature of 18 Degree-Sign C could only be doubled by irradiation with 280 krad. The organoleptic tests were based on preference analyses by means of the nine-step Hedonic scale, and on difference tests (triangle test) and were performed by a paneli At 70 krad the taste is still acceptable at 140 krad there is a distinct taste of rays and at 280 krad the taste is disagreeable. A distinct improvement in taste is achieved by irradiation at low temperatures (-30 Degree-Sign C) and by the addition of ascorbic acid, sorbitol and spices. The experiments are being continued. (author) [French] Les filets de harengs marines sont un produit macere sous l'action d'acide acetique et de sel et vendu dans une saumure epicee contenant environ 3% de sel et d'acide acetique (pH 4). Etant donne que la nouvelle legislation allemande sur les denrees alimentaires vient de reduire a une periode limitee l'addition habituelle d'hexamethylene-tetramine qui sert d'agent de conservation, les auteurs ont procede a des recherches sur la radiopasteurisation comme methode nouvelle de conservation sans addition d'agents chimiques. La corruption de ce produit alimentaire a ete causee par l'heterofermentation due aux bacteries formant l'acide lactique, qui ont decarboxyle les acides amines provenant des matieres proteiques; cette corruption etait accompagnee d'un degagement d'anhydride carbonique. Les marinades ont ete mises dans des boites de conserve plates d'une contenance d'environ 125 g et exposees, pendant la refrigeration, a des rayons gamma provenant d'une source de {sup 60}Co sous ecran d'eau. L'irradiation a augmente la duree de conservation des marinades en conserve. La periode precedant la formation d'anhydride carbonique a 15 Degree-Sign C etait trois fois plus longue qu'habituellement, apres irradiation a 155 krad. Le nombre critique de 1 million de germes par ml a 15 Degree-Sign C a egalement ete atteint dans un delai trois fois plus long qu'habituellement, apres irradiation a 160 krad. La DL{sub 99} de trois souches isolees de bacteries fermant l'acide lactique irradiees dans une solution de sel-peptone etait respectivement de 113, 165 et 144 krad. Comme a 15 Degree-Sign C la croissance des germes est retardee, tandis qu'a 20 Degree-Sign C elle n'est virtuellement pas entravee, la periode de conservation a une temperature de 18 Degree-Sign C ne pourrait etre que doublee par une irradiation a 280 krad. Les essais organoleptiques, fondes sur des analyses preferentielles effectuees a l'aide de l'echelle hedonistique des qualites (neuf degres), ainsi que sur des essais differentiels (test du triangle), ont ete faits par un groupe d'experts. A 70 krad, le gout est encore acceptable; a 140 krad, un gout d'irradiation tres net est perceptible; a 280 krad, le gout est franchement desagreable. Une amelioration sensible du gout peut etre obtenue par une irradiation a basse temperature (-30 Degree-Sign C) et par l'addition d'acide ascorbique, de sorbitol et d'epices.

Como la nueva ley bromatologica alemana restringe temporalmente el empleo de hexametilenotetramina, aditivo conservador habitualmente utilizado, se ha investigado la pasteurizacion por medio de radiaciones ionizantes como un nuevo metodo de conservacion sin adicion de otros agentes. La descomposicion de este producto alimenticio era causada por bacterias lacticas heterofermentativas que descarboxilaban los aminoacidos liberados por las proteinas; la descomposicion se indujo por tratamiento con anhidrido carbonico. Los escabeches se envasaron en latas aplanadas que contenian unos 125 g y se sometieron, mientras se enfriaban,, a los rayos gamma emitidos por una fuente sumergida uee {sup 60}Co. La irradiacion prolongo el periodo de almacenamiento de estas conservas de escabeche. El periodo transcurrido, a 15 Degree-Sign C hasta que se procedio al tratamiento con Co{sub 2}, fue tres veces mayor que el habitual, para una dosis de irradiacion de 155 krad. El numero critico de 1 millon de germenes/ml a 15 Degree-Sign C se alcanzo tambien al cabo de un periodo tres veces superior al habitual, para una dosis de irradiacion de 160 krad. La DLgg de tres cepas aisladas de bacterias lacticas irradiadas en una solucion de sal y peptona fue de 113, 165 y 144 krad, respectivamente. Como a-15 Degree-Sign C los germenes se desarrollan con retraso; mientras que a 22 Degree-Sign C el desarrollo se efectua practicamente sin restricciones, para duplicar la duracion a una temperatura de almacenamiento de 18 Degree-Sign C es necesaria una dosis de 280 krad. Las pruebas organolepticas se basan en analisis de preferencia por aplicacion de la escala hedonistica de nueve puntos y en pruebas de diferenciacion (prueba del triangulo); estas pruebas las realiza un grupo de catadores. A 70 krad el sabor es aun aceptable; a 140 krad hay una neta alteracion del sabor debida a la irradiacion; a 280 krad el sabor es desagradable. Este puede mejorarse bastante por irradiacion a baja temperatura (-30 Degree-Sign C) y adicion de acido ascorbido, sorbitol y condimentos. Prosiguen los experimentos.

    A detector is described which consists of a 5-in diam. by 1/2 in thick sodium iodide crystal and a depth-focusing collimator. The collimator was designed initially for use in brain cortical blood-flow investigations using Xe{sup 133} but may be used with other soft gamma-emitting isotopes such as I{sup 125}. The collimator, which is constructed of lead, is 1/2-in thick and is of multichannel design. The focus is at 1.75 cm from the face of the collimator. The response in air to a point source on the central axis of the collimator falls to 10% of the maximum at {+-} 0.75 cm from the focus. The far field response in tissue is considerably better than in air due to high tissue attenuation of the soft gamma radiation. The response of the collimator to a point source in air and inside a skull is presented. The collimator has been used to measure local cortical blood flow in the brain using Xe{sup 133}. However, using I{sup 125}-tagged chemicals, the detection of cortical tumours and haemorrhages is possible using this apparatus.

Le collimateur, a canaux multiples, est en plomb; il a une epaisseur de 6 mm. Son foyer est a 17,5mm de la face du collimateur.

    A scintillation camera specifically designed for the study of the kinetics of the distribution of radioactive nuclides in the brain has been developed. This device employs two banks of 3/4 in x 1 in sodium iodide-thallium activated crystals, 63 crystals per bank arranged in a 7 x 9 close-packed array on 1-in centres. These banks can be placed so that both lateral views or one lateral and one P-A or A-P view can be obtained simultaneously. The field of view of each crystal is limited by a collimator consisting of nineteen tapered holes whose axes are all parallel. This design gives a response of nearly equal full-width at half height to a simulated tumour source at all distances up to 4 in from the front of the collimator. This response is sufficiently wide to avoid significant ''dead'' areas and yet narrow enough to permit accurate observation of the activity distribution within a very few minutes using normal tracer doses of iodine-131. Each crystal is optically coupled to its own photomultiplier in an integral package. The output pulses of the photomultipliers are analysed by discriminators and the information stored in digital form in a quarter of the memory of a 512-channel pulse-height analyser. Time coincident pulses from the various detectors can be accepted by this equipment so that losses are negligible. Read-out in several forms is available. In digital form either a typewritten record or punched paper tape can be obtained. The latter may be read back into the equipment for review. Analogue read-out is made on a large screen oscilloscope. The scope beam is defocused and two 63 point display rasters generated to correspond to the spatial location of the scintillation counters. Intensity modulation of the oscilloscope beam as well as background erasure is used to assist in visualizing the activity distribution. (author) [French] Les auteurs ont mis au point une chambre a scintillation specialement concue pour des etudes sur la cinetique de la repartition des radionucleides dans le cerveau. Ce dispositif utilise deux series de cristaux Nal(Tl) de 1,8 cm sur 2,5 cm, chaque serie comprenant 63 cristaux disposes sur 7 rangs de 9 cristaux selon un quadrillage de 2,5 cm de cote. Il est possible de placer les deux series de maniere a pouvoir obtenir simultanement, soit les vues sur les deux cotes, soit une vue laterale et une vue postero-anterieure (ou antero-posterieure). Le champ de vision de chaque cristal est limite par un collimateur a 19 orifices coniques dont les axes sont tous paralleles. Ce montage donne une reponse a une source continue dans une tumeur simulee, dont la largeur complete a mi-amplitude est presque egale pour toutes les distances jusqu'a 10 cm a partir de la face anterieure du collimateur. Cette reponse est suffisamment large pour eviter des zones 'mortes' significatives, tout en etant assez etroite pour permettre de faire une observation precise de la repartition de l'activite en quelques minutes, si l'on emploie des doses normales d'iode-131. Chaque cristal est optiquement couple a son propre photomultiplicateur. Les impulsions des photomultiplicateurs a la sortie sont analysees au moyen de discriminateurs; l'information est emmagasinee sous forme numerique dans un quart de la memoire d'un analyseur d'amplitude a 512 canaux. Cet ensemble peut accepter des impulsions coiencidant dans le temps et provenant des divers detecteurs; les pertes sont donc negligeables. La lecture peut se faire sous plusieurs formes. Sous une forme numerique, on peut obtenir, soit une feuille dactylographiee, soit une bande perforee en papier. Celle-ci peut etre repassee dans l'appareil aux fins de controle. Sous forme analogique, la lecture se fait sur un oscilloscope a grand ecran. On defocalise le faisceau de l'oscilloscope et on produit deux series de 63 images dont chacune correspond a un cristal. La modulation de l'intensite du faisceau de l'oscilloscope et l'elimination du bruit de fond facilitent la visualisation de la repartition de l'activite. (author) [Spanish] Los autores han construido una camara de centelleo especialmente concebida para el estudio de la cinetica de la distribucion de radionuclidos en el cerebro. Este dispositivo contiene dos series de cristales de yoduro de sodio activados por talio, de 3/4 x 1 pulg; cada serie comprende 63 cristales dispuestos en 7 filas de 9 cristales con una distancia de 1 pulg entre los centros. Las dos series pueden colocarse de modo que sea posible obtener vistas-simultaneas de dos caras laterales, o de una cara lateral y una posteroanterior (anteroposterior). El campo de vision de cada cristal esta limitado por un colimador de 19 canales conicos cuyos ejes son paralelos entre sf. Este montaje da una respuesta practicamente uniforme a todas las distancias hasta 4 pulg desde el frente del colimador, para una fuente contenida en un tumor simulado. Esta respuesta es suficientemente amplia para evitar zonas 'mu ertas' significativas y ,al mismo tiempo,bastante estrecha para poder observar con exactitud la distribucion de la actividad en unos pocos minutos si se emplean dosis normales de yodo-131 como indicador. Cada cristal esta acoplado opticamente a su propio fotomultiplicador, constituyendo una unidad. Los impulsos de salida de los fotomultiplicadores son analizados mediante discriminadores; la informacion se almacena en forma numerica en una cuarta parte de la memoria de un analizador de amplitud de impulsos de 512 canales. Como este aparato puede aceptar impulsos coincidentes en el tiempo o procedentes de varios detectores, las perdidas son despreciables. La lectura puede efectuarse de distintas maneras. En forma numerica puede obtenerse ya sea un regristro dactilografiado o una cinta de papel perforado. Esta ultima puede introducirse en el aparato para una nueva lectura. En forma analogica, la lectura se hace en un osciloscopio de gran pantalla. Se desenfoca el haz del osciloscopio y se producen dos reticulados de 63 puntos para corresponder a la situacion espacial de los contadores de centelleo. La modulacion de la intensidad del haz del osciloscopio y la supresion de la actividad de fondo facilitan la visualizacion de la distribucion de actividad.

    Tool wear in the shearing of sheet metals was studied with punches and dies of high-speed steel irradiated in an atomic pile. Circular discs 10 mm in diameter were punched from 0.5-mm-thick low-carbon steel, stainless steel and silicon steel in dry and lubricated states. After punching, the radioactivity of the discs and the holes was measured. When the radioactive die was replaced by a non-active one, little radioactivity was detected on the discs, while the radioactivity of the holes scarcely varied. This proved that the wear of the die can be found from the radioactivity of the discs, and that of the punch from the radioactivity of the holes. By this method the wear of the punch and die was followed by using different lubricants and sheet metals with the following results: (1) At the beginning of punching, the wear rates of both punch and die are very large but rapidly decrease, becoming eventually stationary after punching about four to five hundred pieces. (2) The wear rate of the punch is about 20% greater than that of the die. (3) Lubricants with extreme pressure additives, such as chlorine, phosphorus or sulphur, reduce tool wear, while refined mineral oils give little improvement. (4) The heaviest tool wear occurs when punching the harder sheet metals. Tool wear for stainless steel is about three times, and for silicon steel about six times, as large as for low-carbon steel. (author) [French] On a etudie l'usure des outils utilises pour le cisaillement de plaques de metal en se servant de poincons et de matrices en acier rapide irradies dans line pile atomique. Des pastilles de 10 mm de diametre ont ete decoupees, a sec et avec lubrifiants, dans des toles de 0,5 mm d'epaisseur d'acier pauvre en carbone, d'acier inoxydable et d'acier riche en silicium. Apres le poinconnage, on a mesure la radioactivite des pastilles et des trous. Lorsqu'on remplacait la matrice radioactive par une autre non radioactive, on ne detectait guere de radioactivite sur les pastilles, tandis que la radioactivite des trous variait a peine. Cela montre que l'usure de la matrice peut etre mesuree d'apres la radioactivite des pastilles, et celle du poincon d'apres la radioactivite des trous. On a eu recours a cette methode pour suivre le processus d'usure du poincon et de la matrice en employant differents lubrifiants et differentes toles, ce qui a permis de faire les constatations suivantes: 1. Au debut du poinconnage, le taux d'usure du poincon et celui de la matrice sont tres eleves mais diminuent rapidement, pour devenir finalement stationnaires apres decoupage d'environ 4 a 500 pieces. 2. L'usure du poincon est d'environ 20 % plus forte que celle de la matrice. 3. Les lubrifiants contenant des additifs qui resistent aux pressions extremes, tels que le chlore, le phosphore ou le soufre, reduisent l'usure des outils, tandis que les huiles minerales raffinees n'apportent guere d'amelioration. 4. La plus forte usure des outils se produit lors du poinconnage des toles les plus dures. Cette usure est environ trois fois plus forte pour l'acier inoxydable et environ six fois plus forte pour l'acier riche en silicium que pour l'acier pauvre en carbone. (author) [Spanish] Se ha estudiado el desgaste de las herramientas utilizadas en el corte de laminas metalicas con punzones y matrices de acero rapido irradiados en un reactor. Se recortaron a punzon discos de 10 mm de diametro en laminas de acero pobre en carbono, acero inoxidable y acero al silicio de 0,5 mm de espesor en estado seco y lubricado. Despues del punzonamiento, se midio la radiactividad de los discos y de los orificios. Al reemplazar la matriz radiactiva por otra no irradiada, se detecto escasa actividad en los discos, mientras que la radiactividad de los orificios apenas sufrio variacion. Ello demuestra que el desgaste de la matriz y del punzon pueden medirse en funcion de la radiactividad de los discos y de los orificios, respectivamente. Con ayuda de este metodo, se estudio el desgaste del punzon y de la matriz al emplear lubricantes y laminas metalicas de distintos tipos, obteniendose los resultados siguientes: 1) Al comienzo de la operacion, los indices de desgaste del punzon y de la matriz son muy elevados, pero disminuyen rapidamente, para estabilizarse despues de haber recortado entre 400 y 500 piezas; 2) El desgaste del punzon supera en un 20 por ciento al de la matriz; 3) Los lubricantes con aditivos especiales para altas presiones (compuestos de cloro, fosforo o azufre) reducen el desgaste de las herramientas, mientras que los aceites minerales refinados ejercen poco efecto; 4) Cuanto mas duro es el metal trabajado, tanto mayor es el desgaste de las herramientas; el desgaste al punzonar acero inoxidable y acero al silicio es tres y seis veces superior, respectivamente, al observado en el caso del acero pobre en carbono.

    The fully ionized column in, a thermal plasma device (Q-machine) provides a convenient medium for studying the universal (drift-wave) instability arising from the joint effect of the finite ion Larmor radius and the density gradient perpendicular to the magnetic confining field. The pertinent dimensionless parameters can be varied over a range such that the results can be scaled to make comparisons.with plasmas of thermonuclear interest, and the instability can be excited in controlled fashion by appropriate adjustment of the sheath conditions at the metal end plates by using sheath-control techniques that are discussed together with the underlying theory. By exploiting these techniques the oscillation amplitude can be held at arbitrarily low levels and the behaviour of the instability can be traced from the low-amplitude (e Empty-Set /kT {approx}10{sup -3}) ''quasilinear'' regime, characterized by a monochromatic ''locked-mode'' spectrum, into the non-linear regime; and then into a weakly turbulent state (e Empty-Set /kT Less-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 1) characterized by a noisy ''hash'' spectrum. A novel ''raster-display'' method provides a complete picture of the development of the instability and the transition to turbulence. The experimentally determined basic characteristics of the instability such as the mode frequencies, direction of azimuthal propagation, coherence properties, density independence, magnetic field dependence, and spatial dependence of mode amplitude, are in good qualitative agreement with the linear theory of the universal instability. Experiments have also been carried out on the effect of column length on the real part of the frequency (approximately a 10% correction) and on the imaginary part. The effect on the latter is due to ion Landau damping and the method provides an excellent means of studying the Landau damping mechanism itself. The results of these experiments are also in good agreement with the linear theory and have, in addition, revealed a number of non-linear effects such as ''mode jumping'' and ''mode locking''. These non-linear phenomena have been analyzed by generalizing standard methods of non-linear mechanics to distributed systems and are found to be related to similar phenomena observed in optical masers and lumped-parameter vacuumtube systems. (author) [French] La colonne entierement ionisee dans une machine a plasma thermique (machine-Q) fournit un milieu qui convient l'etude de l'instabilite universelle (onde de derive) produite par l'effet combine du rayon de Larmor fini des ions et du gradient de densite perpendiculaire au champ magnetique de confinement. On peut faire varier les parametres sans dimension appropries dans un intervalle tel que les resultats puissent etre gradues pour permettre des comparaisons avec des'plasmas presentant un interet thermonucleaire, et on peut exciter l'instabilite sous controle par un ajustement approprie des conditions de couche aux plaques metalliques terminales en recourant aux techniques de controle de couche qui sont examinees en meme temps queja theorie sur laquelle elles reposent. En recourant a ces techniques; on peut maintenir l'amplitude d'oscillation a des niveaux arbitrairement bas et on peut suivre le comportement de l'instabilite dans son passage du regime 'quasi lineaire' de basse amplitude (e Empty-Set /kT Tilde-Operator 10{sup -3}) - caracterise par un spectre monochromatique de 'mode ferme' -au regime non lineaire, puis a un etat faiblement turbulent (e Empty-Set /kT Less-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 1) - caracterise par un spectre de bruit 'hache'. Une methode nouvelle 'd'agencement en grille' fournit un tableau complet du developpement de l'instabilite et de la transition vers la turbulence. Les caracteristiques fondamentales de l'instabilite, determinees experimentalement, telles que les frequences de mode, la direction de la propagation azimutale, les proprietes de coherence, l'indep'endance a . l'egard de la densite, la dependance a l'egard duchamp magnetique et la dependance spatiale de l'amplitude de mode sont qualitativement en bon accord avec la theorie lineaire de l'instabilite universelle. L'auteur a egalement procede a des experiences sur l'effet de la longueur de la colonne sur la partie reelle de la frequence (une correction d'environ 10%) ainsi que sur sa partie imaginaire. L'effet sur cette derniere partie est du a l'amortissement de Landau des ions et cette methode fournit un excellent moyen d'etudier le mecanisme {center_dot} meme de l'amortissement de Landau. Les resultats de ces experiences sont aussi en bon accord avec la theorie lineaire et ils ont, en outre, revele plusieurs effets non lineaires tels que le < saut de mode> et la . L'auteur a analyse ces phenomenes non lineaires en etendant l'application des methodes courantes de la mecanique non lineaire a des systemes discontinus et il a trouve une relation entre eux et des phenomenes similaires observes dans des masers optiques et dans des dispositifs a tube et parametres globaux. (author) [Spanish] La columna totalmente ionizada en un dispositivo de plasma termico (maquina Q) constituye un medio conveniente para estudiar la inestabilidad universal (onda de deriva) producida por el efecto combinado del radio de Larmor finito de los iones, y del gradiente de densidad-perpendicular al campo magnetico de confinamiento. Es posible modificar los parametros adimensionales adecuados en un intervalo de valores tal que los resultados puedan graduarse a fin de permitir comparaciones con plasmas que presentan interes termonuclear; la inestabilidad puede provocarse de manera controlada regulando adecuadamente las condiciones de la capa lfmite en las placas metalicas terminales mediante tecnicas de control que se analizan conjuntamente con la teoria en que se basan. Recurriendo a estas tecnicas, es posible mantener la amplitud de las oscilaciones en valores arbitrariamente bajos y seguir el comportamiento de la inestabilidad desde el regimen 'cuasi lineal' de baja-amplitud (e Empty-Set /kT Tilde-Operator 10{sup -3}), caracterizado por un espectro monocromatico de 'modo inmovilizado', pasando por el regimen no lineal, hasta el estado debilmente turbulento (e Empty-Set /kT Less-Than-Or-Equivalent-To 1), caracterizado por un espectro de ruidos 'entrecortados'. Un nuevo metodo de 'presentacion en cuadricula' permite obtener una imagen completa del desarrollo de la inestabilidad y de la transicion a la turbulencia. Las caracteristicas fundamentales de la inestabilidad determinadas experimen taime rite, tales como las frecuencias modales, la direccion de propagacion azimutal, las propiedades de coherencia, la independencia con respecto a la densidad, la dependencia del campo magnetico y la dependencia espacial de la amplitud modal concuerdan cualitativamente con la teorfa lineal de la inestabilidad universal. El autor efectuo tambien Hmerimentos sobre el efecto que la longitud de la columna ejerce sobre la parte real de la frecuencia (correction del orden de 10%) y sobre su parte imaginaria. El efecto sobre la ultima parte se debe al amortiguamiento He Landau de los iones y el metodo constituye un excelente medio para estudiar el mecanismo del amortigua- Sniento de Landau propiamente dicho. Los resultados de estos experimentos concuerdan asimismo con la teorfa fineal y, ademas, han puesto de manifiesto una serie de efectos no lineales, tales por ejemplo el 'salto modal' i el 'cierre modal'. Estos fenomenos no lineales se analizaron extendiendo los metodos normales de la mecanica no lineal a los sistemas discontinuos, hallandose que estan relacionados con fenomenos similares obser- . vados en masers opticos y en sistemas de tubo de vacio con parametros globales.

    Techniques of ''high pressure'' mass spectrometry have been employed to study the exchange of hydrogen isotopes in carbon-containing products of ion-molecule reactions. Comparison of the positively charged mass spectra of H{sub 2} + CH{sub 4}, D{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} and T{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} mixtures with those of the individual components, observed for source pressures of approximately 0.1 torr, demonstrated that the CH{sup +}{sub 3} and molecular hydrogen primary ions react rapidly with the other component of the gas mixture to create, by consecutive reactions, secondary and tertiary ionic species in which the hydrogen isotopes are extensively exchanged. When methane is added to D{sub 2}, the principal species of deuterium, D{sub 2}{sup +} and D{sub 3}{sup +}, are almost completely quenched; and C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +} and C{sub 2}H{sub 2}D{sub 3}{sup +} are formed in high yield. The CH{sub 3}{sup +} ion is also shown to react readily with D{sub 2} molecules to produce the same deuterated ethyl species. Analogous findings came from study of T{sub 2}-CH{sub 4} systems. Observations on H{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} mixtures confirmed that the deuterated and tritiated products were C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} -type ions with one, two or three hydrogen atoms replaced by the heavier isotope. Correspondence of appearance potentials and ionization efficiency curves gave further evidence that D{sub 2}{sup +} and CH{sub 3}{sup +} are the primary precursors of the deuterated ethyl ions. The enhancements of the C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} intensity ratios observed with increasing deuterium concentration (at constant CH{sub 4} pressure) suggest that the isotopically-exchanged species are produced by mechanisms involving consecutive ion-molecule reactions that are at least one kinetic order higher in D{sub 2} concentration than those for formation of C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}. This is consistent with the analysis of the possible reaction paths, which leads to the conclusion that the deuterated species are the products of reactions first and second order in D{sub 2}. and that C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} is formed by ionic reactions with both first- and zero-order dependences on deuterium concentration. The kinetic rates of the isotopic exchange reactions CH{sub 3}{sup +} + D{sub 2} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + H + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H + H{sub 2}) responsible for the rapid diminution of primary species with added opposite component must be within an order of magnitude of the rates of the respective competing reactions CH{sub 3}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} -> C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + D{sub 2} --> D{sub 3}{sup +} + D for which cross-sections of 27 x 10{sup -16} and 56 x 10{sup -16} cm{sup 2}/molecule, respectively, were measured, These cross sections correspond to the very large rate constants of 9.9 x 10{sup -10} and 4.0 x 10{sup -9} cm{sup 3} molecule/sec. The isotopically-enriched methyl ions must also react very rapidly with D{sub 2} and/or CH{sub 4} to form labelled C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} species. (author) [French] L'auteur a employe des techniques de spectrometrie de masse <> pour etudier l'echange d'isotopes de l'hydrogene dans les produits carbones de reactions ion-molecule. La comparaison entre les spectres de masse de melanges H{sub 2} + CH{sub 4}, D{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} and T{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} de charge positive et ceux de leurs constituants - observes pour des pressions a la source d'environ 0,1 torr - a montre que les ions primaires CH{sub 3}{sup +} et hydrogene moleculaire reagissent rapidement avec l'autre constituant du melange gazeux pour donner, par une suite de reactions, des especes ioniques secondaires et tertiaires dans lesquelles les isotopes de l'hydrogene s'echangent activement. Lorsque l'on ajoute du methane a D{sub 2}, les principales especes de deuterium D{sup +}{sub 2} et D{sup +}{sub 3} sont presque completement eteintes et il y a formation de C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +} and C{sub 2}H{sub 2}D{sub 3}{sup +} avec un haut rendement. Il apparaft aussi que CH{sup +}{sub 3} reagit facilement avec des molecules D{sub 2} pour produire le meme ethyle deutere. L'etude de systemes T{sub 2} -CH{sub 4} aboutit a des conclusions analogues. Des observations faites sur des melanges H{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} ont confirme que les produits deuteres et trities etaient des ions du type C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} , dans lesquels un, deux ou trois atomes d'hydrogene etaient remplaces par l'isotope plus lourd. La correspondance entre des potentiels d'apparition et des courbes d'efficacite d'ionisation est une preuve supplementaire que D{sub 2}{sup +} et CH{sub 3}{sup +} sont les precurseurs primaires des ions ethyle deutere. L'augmentation des rapports d'intensite C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} Que l'on observe lorsque la concentration en deuterium s'accroit (a pression de CH{sub 4} constante) donne a penser que les especes resultant de l'echange isotopique se produisent par des mecanismes impliquant une suite de reactions ion- molecule qui sont du point de vue cinetique au moins d'un ordre plus eleve que les reactions de formation de C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}. Cette idee est compatible avec l'analyse des voies de reaction possibles, qui aboutit a la conclusion que les especes deuterees sont les produits de reactions a la fois du premier et du second ordre en D{sub 2} et que C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} se forme par reactions ioniques dans lesquelles les exposants correspondant au deuterium sont 1 et zero. Les vitesses de reactions CH{sub 3}{sup +} + D{sub 2} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + H + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H + H{sub 2}) auxquelles est due la diminution rapide de l'espece primaire avec l'addition du constituant oppose, doivent etre de l'ordre de grandeur des vitesses des reactions concurrentes respectives CH{sub 3}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} -> C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + D{sub 2} --> D{sub 3}{sup +} + D pour lesquelles l'auteur a mesure des sections efficaces de 27 x 10{sup -16} et 56 x 10{sup -16} cm{sup 2}/molecule respectivement. Ces sections efficaces correspondent a de tres grandes constantes de vitesse de 9.9 x 10{sup -10} and 4.0 x 10{sup -9} cm{sup 3} molecule/s. Les ions methyle enrichis en isotope doivent aussi reagir tres rapidement avec D{sub 2} et CH{sub 4} pour former l'espece marquee C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} . (author) [Spanish] El autor ha empleado tecnicas de espectrometria de masas 'de alta presion' para estudiar el intercambio de isotopos de hidrogeno en productos carbonados de reacciones ionico-moleculares. En observaciones hechas a presiones de aproximadamente 0,1 torr en la fuente, H{sub 2} + CH{sub 4}, D{sub 2} + CH{sub 4} y T{sub 2} + CH{sub 4}, de carga positiva comparados con los espectros de los componentes individuales, los espectros de mezclas pusieron de manifiesto que el CH{sub 3}{sup +} y los iones primarios de hidrogeno molecular reaccionan rapidamente con el otro componente de la mezcla de gases para crear, mediante una serie de reacciones consecutivas, especies ionicas secundarias y terciarias en las cuales tiene lugar un intenso intercambio de isotopos de hidrogeno. Cuando se agrega metano al D{sub 2}, las especies principales de deuterio, D{sub 2}{sup +} y D{sub 3}{sup +} desaparecen casi por completo, formandose en cambio grandes cantidades de C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +} and C{sub 2}H{sub 2}D{sub 3}{sup +} . Se comprueba, asimismo, que el ion CH{sub 3}{sup +} reacciona facilmente con las moleculas de D{sub 2} para producir identicos grupos etilo deuterados. El estudio de los sistemas T{sub 2}-CH{sub 4} dio resultados analogos y el de las mezclas H{sub 2}+ CH{sub 4} confirmo que los productos deuterados y tritiados eran iones del tipo C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} donde el isotopo mas pesado habia reemplazado uno, dos o tres atomos de hidrogeno. La concordancia entre los potenciales de formacion y las curvas de rendimiento de ionizacion constituye una prueba adicional de que el D{sub 2} y el CH{sub 3}{sup +} son los precursores primarios de los iones etilo deuterados. Al aumentar la concentracion de deuterio (a presion constante de CH{sub 4}) se observa una intensificacion directamente proporcional de las relaciones de intensidad C{sub 2}H{sub 4}D{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}, C{sub 2}H{sub 3}D{sub 2}{sup +}/C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}. Esta intensificacion sugiere que las especies resultantes del intercambio isotopico se producen en virtud de mecanismos donde intervienen varias reacciones ionico-moleculares consecutivas, reacciones de por lo menos un orden cinetico superior en concentracion de D{sub 2}, a las que intervienen en la formacion del C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}, Esta idea es compatible con el analisis de las vfas de reaccion posibles lo que lleva a concluir que las especies deuteradas son productos de reacciones tanto de primero como de segundo orden en D{sub 2}, y que el C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} se forma por reacciones ionicas en las cuales los exponentes correspondientes a la concentracion de deuterio son 1 y 0. Las velocidades de las reacciones de intercambio isotopico CH{sub 3}{sup +} + D{sub 2} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} ( North-East-Arrow CH{sub 2}D{sup +} + H + DH); ( South-East-Arrow CHD{sub 2}{sup +} + H + H{sub 2}) a las cuales se atribuye la rapida disminucion de la concentracion de las especies primarias con componente opuesto agregado, no deben diferir en mas de un orden de magnitud de las velocidades correspondientes a las respectivas reacciones competitivas CH{sub 3}{sup +} + CH{sub 4} -> C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +} + H{sub 2}; D{sub 2}{sup +} + D{sub 2} --> D{sub 3}{sup +} + D para las cuales se han medido secciones de 27 x 10{sup -16} y 56 x 10{sup -16} cm{sup 2}/molecula, respectivamente. Estas secciones corresponden a constantes de velocidad muy elevadas, a saber de 9.9 x 10{sup -10} y 4.0 x 10{sup -9} cm{sup 3} molecula. Los iones metilo isotopicamente enriquecidos tambien deben reaccionar muy rapidamente con D{sub 2}y/o CH{sub 4}, para formar la especie marcada C{sub 2}H{sub 5}{sup +}.

    Research made with a natural uranium, light-water assembly is reported and some topics on the future programme are also presented. Most of the material given here is new. Part of it is of a preliminary nature because the experimental work and the analysis of the results are still going on. ' Work on the assembly has been concentrated on two main objectives; namely: 1. Experimental study of the validity of calculation methods to be used particularly in cases of special geometries (non-uniform fuel distributions, sub- assembly configurations, boundaries of special form etc.). Theoretical study here often leads to certain convergence difficulties, hence comparison with measured flux distributions is necessary, 2. Study of special properties of natural uranium, light-water lattices and especially of the validity of few-group slowing-down models for both uniform and non-uniform core structures. It is believed that an assembly with only a spontaneous fission source is particularly suitable for research of this kind, if we neglect the poor statistics. This is due to two facts: 1. The primary source spectrum can be considered as identical with that of induced fission, so that there are no energy transients like those in the case of a fast point source. 2. The spatial strength of the primary source is proportional to the fission cross-section of the fuel, when the latter is also considered as a function of space co-ordinates. This elegant feature again gives formal simplicity to flux equations and in many cases a similarity with respect to critical systems. Through careful analysis of the flux distributions in such a system one can gain information about the validity of special slowing-down models. Also, possibly some light can be thrown on such questions as interaction fast-fission and space-dependent resonance escape probability. In the author's opinion, the liquid-moderated subcritical assembly, because of its versatility and safety, is nearly the only possibility for systematic study of non-uniform lattices. In the future, enriched elements will be included in the assembly. Then systematic study of mixed lattices becomes possible, and also research with other non-uniformities will be easier because of the higher flux. Some discussion of this future programme is included in this paper. (author) [French] L'auteur relate les recherches effectuees avec un ensemble uranium naturel-eau ordinaire et enumere certains des sujets qui feront l'objet d'un prochain programme. La plus grande partie de la documentation est nouvelle. Certaines donnees ont encore un caractere provisoire, car les experiences et l'analyse des resultats se poursuivent. . Les travaux sont axes sur deux objectifs principaux: 1. Etude experimentale de la validite des methodes de calcul que l'on se propose d'utiliser, notamment en cas de geometries speciales (repartitions non uniformes du combustible, configurations de s'ous- ensembles, limites de forme particuliere, etc.). Les etudes theoriques conduisent souvent ici a certaines difficultes de convergence. Il faut donc les comparer avec les repartitions du flux mesurees. 2. Etude des proprietes particulieres des reseaux uranium naturel-eau ordinaire et notamment de la validite des modeles de ralentissement a plusieurs groupes pour des structures de coeur uniformes et non uniformes. On pense qu'un ensemble comportant une seule source de fission spontanee convient particulierement pour les recherches de ce genre, bien que la statistique ne porte que sur un petit nombre d'observations. Cela est du a deux faits: 1. On peut considerer que le spectre de la source primaire est identique a celui de la fission induite, si bien qu'il n'y a pas d'oscillations transitoires d'energie, comme dans le cas d'une source ponctuelle de neutrons rapides. 2. L'intensite de la source primaire en chaque point de l'espace est proportionnelle a la section efficace de fission du combustible lorsqu'on considere egalement cette derniere comme une fonction des coordonnees spatiales. Cette particularite contribue a simplifier la forme des equations du flux et bien souvent permet de ttouver une analogie avec les systemes critiques. Par une analyse approfondie des repartitions du flux dans un tel systeme, on peut obtenir des renseignements sur la validite de-modeles speciaux de ralentissement. On peut aussi obtenir quelques eclaircissements sur des problemes comme la fission rapide par interaction et la probabilite de fuite par resonance en fonction de l'espace. L'auteur estime que l'ensemble sous-critique, ralenti par un liquide, a cause de ses utilisations multiples et de sa securite, constitue presque la seule possiblite d'etude systematique de reseaux non uniformes. On se propose d'ajouter, a cet assemblage, des elements contenant du combustible enrichi. On pourra alors passer a l'etude systematique de reseaux mixtes. De plus, la recherche avec d'autres facteurs de non- uniformite sera plus facile parce que le flux sera plus haut. Le memoire donne quelques apercus sur le programme futur. (author) [Spanish] El autor informa sobre las investigaciones realizadas con un conjunto de uranio natural y agua ligera, y presenta algunos de los temas que constituiran el objeto de un programa futuro. La mayor parte de los datos son ineditos. Una parte reviste caracter provisional debido a que estan todavia en curso los trabajos experimentales y el analisis de los resultados. Los estudios se han concentrado en dos objetivos principales: 1. Estudio experimental de la validez de los metodos de calculos que se emplearan, particularmente en casos de geometrias especiales (distribuciones no uniformes del combustible, configuracion de subconjuntos, fronteras de forma especial, etc.). En estos casos, los estudios teoricos entranan con frecuencia ciertas dificultades de convergencia, por lo que es necesario comparar sus resultados con las distribuciones de flujo medidas. 2. Estudio de las propiedades especiales de los reticulados de uranio natural-agua ligera, en especial de la validez de los modelos de frenado de pocos grupos para cuerpos de estructura uniforme y no uniforme. Los conjuntos con una sola fuente de fision espontanea se consideran particularmente adecuados para las investigaciones de esta clase, aunque la estadistica solo abarca un numero reducido de observaciones. Esto se debe a dos hechos: 1. El espectro de la fuente primaria se puede considerar identico al de la fision inducida, por lo que no existen fluctuaciones transitorias de energia como en el caso de una fuente puntiforme de neutrones rapidos. 2. La intensidad de la fuente primaria en cada punto del espacio es proporcional a la seccion eficaz de fision del combustible cuando esta ultima se considera en funcion de las coordenadas espaciales. Esta particularidad contribuye a simplificar las ecuaciones de flujo y permite, en muchos casos, hallar una analogia con los sistemas criticos. Un analisis minucioso de las distribuciones de flujo en sistemas de esta clase proporciona datos sobre la validez de modelos especiales de frenado. Tambien es posible obtener algunas aclaraciones sobre problemas como la fision rapida por interaccion y la probabilidad de escape por resonancia en funcion del espacio. El autor estima que, debido a sus multiples aplicaciones y a su seguridad intrinseca, los conjuntos subcriticos con moderador liquido constituyen casi la unica posibilidad de estudiar sistematicamente reticulados no uniformes. Existe el proposito de anadir a ese conjunto elementos enriquecidos. Ello permitira proceder al estudio sistematico de reticulados mixtos, y debido al flujo mas elevado, facilitara tambien el estudio de otros factores no uniformes. La memoria expone algunos aspectos de ese programa futuro. (author) [Russian] Soobshhaetsja ob issledovanijah na podkriticheskoj sborke, rabotajushhej na prirodnom urane i obychnoj vode.

    In the framework of the Seibersdorf International Programme on Irradiation Preservation of Fruit and Fruit Juices one of the main items of research deals with the problem of the radiosensitization of microorganisms. To study the effect of heat and irradiation treatments on the survival of yeast cells (colony formation), a highly radioresistant strain, Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. ellipsoideus, grown in a semi-synthetic nutrient medium, was given a combined treatment of heating and gamma irradiation ({sup 60}Co source) at the beginning of its log phase. The heat treatment was applied either immediately before, during or immediately after the irradiation process. The temperature was varied between 20 Degree-Sign C and 52.5 Degree-Sign C. The irradiation treatment was carried out with a dose range of up to 0.3 x 10{sup 6} rad in a well-aired glass tube. The inhibiting effect of this combined treatment depends upon the sequence of heating and irradiation and shows the following results: the most effective combination is the simultaneous treatment of heating and irradiation; less effective is this combination wherein irradiation at room temperature follows the heating procedure; and most ineffective is the heating after irradiation at room temperature. The combined heat/irradiation treatment results in survival curves (survival fractions) which are straight lines in relation to the irradiation dose at a semi-logarithmic scale in the temperature range between room temperature and 45 Degree-Sign C. Above 45 Degree-Sign C the curves show, at doses lower than 30 krad, an increase of the survivals compared with the unirradiated sample. By comparing the slopes of the survival curves obtained at different temperatures, one can see that in the case of irradiation at temperatures higher than 40 Degree-Sign C there is a high synergistic effect for the simultaneous treatment, e.g. about 2 orders of magnitude at 150 krad. Based on these results the technological possibilities of this treatment are under investigation on apple and grape juice. (author) [French] L'un des principaux sujets de recherche inscrits au programme international sur la conservation des fruits et jus de fruits par irradiation, execute a Seibersdorf, est le probleme de la radiosensibilisation des micro-organismes. En vue d'etudier l'effet d'un traitement par la chaleur et l'irradiation sur la survie des cellules de levures (formation de colonies), une souche a forte radioresistance - Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. ellipsoideus - cultivee sur un milieu nutritif semi-synthetique, a ete soumise des le debut de sa phase logarithmique a un traitement combine par chauffage et irradiation gamma (source au cobalt-60). Le traitement thermique a ete applique, soit immediatement avant l'irradiation, soit pendant ou immediatement apres celle-ci. On a fait varier la temperature entre 20 et 52,5 Degree-Sign C. Pour l'irradiation, effectuee dans Bullet un tube en verre bien aere, on a utilise des doses allant jusqu'a 0, 3 x 10{sup 6} rad. L'effet d'inhibition de ce traitement mixte depend de l'ordre de succession du chauffage et de l'irradiation; les resultats obtenus sont les suivants: la combinaison la plus efficace est un traitement simultane par chauffage et irradiation; la combinaison qui consiste a faire suivre le chauffage d'une irradiation a la temperature ambiante est moins efficace; le moindre effet a ete obtenu par chauffage apres irradiation a la temperature ambiante. Le traitement mixte chaleur/irradiation donne des courbes de survie (fractions d'organismes survivants) qui sont des lignes droites ayant pour coordonnees la dose d'irradiation a une echelle semi-logarithimique, et la temperature dans l'intervalle compris entre la temperature ambiante et 45 Degree-Sign C. Au-dessus de 45 Degree-Sign C, les courbes indiquent, a des doses inferieures a 30 krad, un accroissement du nombre des survivants par rapport a l'echantillon non irradie. En comparant les pentes des courbes de survie obtenues a des temperatures differentes, on constate que, dans le cas d'une irradiation a une temperature superieure a 40 Degree-Sign C, le traitement simultane produit un effet synergique prononce, qui atteint deux ordres de grandeur pour 150 krad. En partant de ces resultats, on procede actuellement a une etude des possibilites techniques de ce traitement sur des jus de pomme et de raisin. (author) [Spanish] Uno de los principales temas de investigacion incluidos en el programa internacional relativo a la irradiacion de frutas y zumos de fruta que se viene ejecutando en Seibersdorf se refiere al problema de la radio- sensibilizacion de microorganismos. Para estudiar los efectos del tratamiento termico y del tratamiento por irradiacion sobre la supervivencia de las celulas de levadura (formacion de colonias), se sometio a un tratamiento combinado de aplicacion de calor y de irradiacion gamma (fuente: {sup 60}Co), al comienzo de su fase de desarrollo logaritmico, una cepa de elevada radiorresistencia -Saccharomyces cerevisiae var. ellipsoideus - cultivada en un medio nutritivo semisintetico. El calor se aplico inmediatamente antes de la irradiacion, durante esta o inmediatamente despues. Las temperaturas estuvieron comprendidas entre 20 y 52,5 Degree-Sign C. La irradiacion se realizo con dosis de hasta 0,3 x 10{sup 6} rad, en un tubo de vidrio, bien aireado. El efecto inhibidor de este tratamiento combinado depende del orden en que se suceden la aplicacion del calor y la irradiacion, habiendose llegado a las siguientes conclusiones: la combinacion mas eficaz consiste en simultanear el tratamiento termico con el tratamiento por irradiacion; esta combinacion resulta menos eficaz cuando la irradiacion a la temperatura ambiente tiene lugar a continuacion del tratamiento termico; la combinacion de eficacia minima consiste en proceder al tratamiento termico despues de haberse efectuado la irradiacion a la temperatura ambiente. El tratamiento termico combinado con la irradiacion se traduce en un grafico de supervivencia (fracciones de supervivencia) que presenta la forma de linea recta en funcion de la dosis de irradiacion en una escala semilogantmica para el intervalo de temperaturas comprendido entre la temperatura ambiente y 45 Degree-Sign C. Por encima de los 45 Degree-Sign C las lineas revelan un aumento de las supervivencias, en comparacion con la muestra no irradiada, para dosis inferiores a 30 krad. Comparando las pendientes de las lineas de supervivencia obtenidas a distintas temperaturas, puede observarse que en el caso de una irradiacion a temperaturas superiores a 40 Degree-Sign C se produce un acusado efecto.

    The short-lived radioisotope O{sup 14} has been used in two experiments designed to determine the degree of polarization of the decay positrons. In the two-component theory of beta-decay, first proposed by Lee and Yang, the non-conservation of parity implies that positrons will have their spin angular momentum polarized in the direction of motion by an amount proportional to their velocity divided by the velocity of light. The proportionality constant depends upon the type of interaction responsible for the decay process. The properties of 72-sec O{sup 14} are suitable for a test of certain aspects of the theory. O{sup 14} decays from a zero-spin, even-parity state to another zerospin, even-parity excited state in N{sup 14}. Therefore, the decay is a pure Fermi-type. The O{sup 14} was produced by an N{sup 14} (p, n) O{sup 14} reaction in the University of Washington 60-in cyclotron by a continuous N{sub 2} flow system. O{sub 2} carrier gas was added to the N{sub 2}. After activation the gas passed through suitable filters to remove unwanted activities, and to combine the oxygen with hydrogen. The active water vapour was trapped at liquid N{sub 2} temperature on a copper rod to form a strong ( {approx} 10 mc) continuous source of 72-sec O{sup 14}. Decay positrons were energy-analysed in a small magnetic spectrometer. The longitudinal polarization of the positrons emerging from the spectrometer was studied by two methods. In the first the positrons impinged upon a plastic scintillator where some of them annihilated in flight. The more energetic annihilation quantum is circularly polarized in the same sense as that of the original positron. These gamma rays were Compton-scattered from magnetized iron and detected in a Nal(Tl) scintillation counter. An asymmetry in the scattering crosssection with the direction of magnetization is related to the original amount of positron polarization. In the second method the positrons were focussed upon a magnetized iron foil. The positron-electron, or Bhabha, scattering cross-section depends upon the sense of magnetization of the iron foil relative to the positron polarization. The scattered electron and positron were detected in plastic scintillation-counters operating in fast coincidence. For both methods the expected asymmetries are small, and long counting-periods were required. The results show that 1-MeV O{sup 14} positrons are right-handed polarized. The annihilation method gave the value (0.73 {+-} 0.17) v/c, the Bhabha scattering method gave (0.97 {+-} 0.19) v/c. The simplest theory predicts 1.00 v/c. I t is believed that the Bhabha scattering method is the more reliable, chiefly because the relation between asymmetry and polarization is easier to calculate. (author) [French] Le radioisotope oxygene-14 a courte periode a ete utilise au cours de deux experiences visant a determiner le degre de polarisation des positions de desintegration. Dans la theorie a deux composantes sur la desintegration beta, enoncee pour la premiere fois par Lee et Yang, la non-conservation de la parite implique que l'impulsion angulaire de spin des positions se polarisera dans le sens du mouvement selon une constante proportionnelle a leur vitesse divisee par la vitesse de la lumiere. Cette constante depend du type d'interaction responsable du processus de desintegration. Les proprietes de l'oxygene-14 (periode de 72 s) permettent de verifier experimentalement certains aspects de cette theorie. Lorsqu'un atoms de {sup 14}O se desintegre en {sup 14}N, il passe d'un etat de spin zero, de parite +1, a un autre etat excite, egalement de spin zero et de parite +1. Il s'agit donc d'une desintegration pure du type Fermi. Le {sup 14}O a ete produit par une reaction {sup 14}N (p, n) {sup 14}O realisee dans le cyclotron de 60 pouces de l'Universite de Washington au moyen d'un courant continu de N{sub 2} auquel on a ajoute de l'O{sub 2} comme entraineur. Apres activation, on a fait passer le gaz dans des filtres appropries pour eliminer les activites indesirables et combiner l'oxygene avec de l'hydrogene. La vapeur d'eau active a ete condensee a la temperature de l'azote liquide sur une barre de cuivre, de facon a constituer une source continue d'activite elevee ({approx}10mc) de {sup 14}O (periode de 72 s). L'energie des positons de desintegration a ete analysee dans un petit spectrometre magnetique. La polarisation longitudinale des positons emergeant du spectrometre a ete etudiee de deux facons. Dans le premier cas, les positons frappaient un scintillateur en plastique, et quelques-uns d'entre eux etaient annihiles en cours de vol. Le quantum d'annihilation le plus energique est polarise circulairement dans le meme sens que celui du positon initial. Ces rayons gamma subissaient une diffusion de Compton siu' du fer magnetise et etaient ensuite detectes au moyen d'un compteur a scintillation Nal (T1). L'asymetrie de la section efficace de diffusion par rapport au sens de la magnetisation est fonction de la polarisation initiale des positons. Dans le second cas, on a dirige les positons sur une feuille de fer magnetise. La section efficace de diffusion des positons-electrons (methode de Bhabha) depend alors du sens de la magnetisation de la feuille de fer par rapport a la polarisation des positons. Les electrons et les positons diffuses ont ete detectes au moyen de compteurs a scintillation en plastique, fonctionnant en coincidence rapide. Dans l'un et l'autre cas, les asymetries prevues sont faibles, et des periodes de comptage de longue duree sont necessaires. Les resultats obtenus indiquent que les positons de f MeV emis par le {sup 14}O sont polarises a droite. La methode d'annihilation donne la valeur de (0,73 {+-} 0,17) v/c; la methode de diffusion de Bhabha donne (0.97 {+-} 0,19) v/c. La theorie la plus simple prevoit 1,00 v/c. On pense que la methode de diffusion de Bhabha est la plus sure, car la relation entre l'asymetrie et la polarisation est plus facile a calculer. (author) [Spanish] El radioisotopo {sup 14}O, de periodo de semidesintegracion corto, se ha utilizado en dos experimentos destinados a determinar el grado de polarizacion de los positrones de desintegracion. En la teoria de los dos componentes de la desintegracion beta que enunciaron por primera vez Lee y Yang, la no conservacion de la paridad exige que el impulso angular del spin de los positrones se polarice en el sentido del movimiento en una cantidad proporcional a su velocidad dividida por la de la luz. La constante de proporcionalidad depende del tipo de interaccion al que se deba el proceso de desintegracion. Las propiedades del {sup 14}O de 72 segundos permiten comprobar experimentalmente algunos aspectos de esta teoria. Al desintegrarse en {sup 14}N el {sup 14}O pasa de un estado de spin cero y paridad + 1, a otro estado, excitado, de spin cero y paridad + 1. Por consiguiente, la desintegracion constituye lina transicion de tipo Fermi puro. El {sup 14}O fue obtenido mediante la reaccion {sup 14}N (p, n) O{sup 14} en el ciclotron de 60 pulgadas de la Universidad de Washington, por un sistema de flujo continuo de N{sub 2} al que se agrego O{sub 2} como gas portador. Despues de activado, el gas atraviesa unos filtros para eliminar las actividades indeseadas y para combinar el exigeno con hidrogeno. El vapor de agua activa fue condensado a la temperatura del N{sub 2} liquido sobre una varilla de cobre, para obtener una fuente continua de elevada intensidad (unos 10 mc) de {sup 14}O de 72 segundos. La energia de los positrones de desintegracion fue analizada con ayuda de un pequeno espectrometro magnetico. La polarizacion longitudinal de los positrones a la salida del espectrometro se estudio por dos metodos diferentes. En el primer metodo, los positrones inciden sobre un centelleador de material plastico en el que algunos de ellos son aniquilados en vuelo. El cuanto de aniquilacion, cuya energia es mayor, se polariza circularmente en el mismo sentido que el positron original. Estos rayos gamma son dispersados en hierro imantado por efecto Compton e identificados en un contador de centelleo de Nal(Tl). La asimetria de .la seccion eficaz de dispersion con respecto a la direccion de magnetizacion esta relacionada con la magnitud original de la polarizacion de los positrones. El segundo metodo consistio en dirigir los positrones sobre una lamina de hierro imantada. La seccion eficaz de dispersion positron-electron, o de Bhabha, depende del sentido de la magnetizacion de la lamina de hierro con respecto a la polarizacion de los positrones. Los electrones y positrones dispersos fueron detectados en contadores de centelleo, de material plastico, conectados a un circuito de coincidencias rapidas. En ambos metodos las asimetrias previstas son pequenas, lo cual exige periodos largos de recuento. Los experimentos han demostrado que los positrones de 1 MeV procedentes de {sup 14}O tienen polarizacion dextrogira. El metodo de aniquilacion dio un valor (0,73 {+-} 0,17) v/c; el metodo de dispersion de Bhabha dio (0,97 {+-} 0,19) v/c. La teoria mas simple predice un valor de 1,00 v/c. Se supone que el metodo de dispersion de Bhabha es el que da mejores resultados, sobre todo porque la relacion entre la asimetria y la polarizacion es mas facil de calcular.

Kislorod O{sup 14} raspadaetsya ot nulevogo spina, prokhodit cherez chetnoe sostoyanie, perekhodit k drugomu nulevomu spinu i prevrashchaetsya v N{sup 14} v vozbuzhdennom chetnom sostoyanii.

    Full Text Available The water hyacinth ( Eichhornia crassipes grows naturally in some floodplains of the middle Orinoco River. Its widespread distribution and biomass is causing a great impact in the towns near these lentic ecosystems. The vegetative growth, floral biology and fecundity of E. crassipes were determined in the Castillero, Teja and Tejita lagoons near Caicara del Orinoco, from January to July 2005, during the dry season. Plants were placed at initial density of five rosettes in floating baskets in the floodplains and the number of daughter plants (g. m -2 and dry biomass m-2 were determined at fifteen, thirty, sixty and ninety days after seeding. The number of plants with and without flowers or fructified were counted in areas of the lagoons with the highest flowering intensity. The spatial distribution of stamens in relation to the stigma were observed in order to determine the presence of heterostyly. The number of water hyacinth plants and weight can double in an average of 20 and 24 days, respectively. The fastest growth rate (rossettes m -2 was found in January and February while the major growth rate in dry weight m-2 was recorded in February-May. It is frequent to find inflorescences in the dry season and occasionally in the wet season. From the kinds of heterostityly only plants with mesostyle flowers were found . The reproduction of water hyacinth is mainly vegetative and seeds are scarcely found in the capsules

    To assess the biological safety of foods which are of interest to the Atomic Energy Commission's irradiated food program, studies have been sponsored by the Commission's Division of Biology and Medicine since 1961. Wholesomeness, microbiological and biochemical studies have been undertaken with a view to complementing data derived from developmental, economic and technological research studies sponsored by the Commission's Division of Isotopes Development. When these aspects appear feasible for specific low-dose irradiated foods, studies are initiated to provide relevant data required by the United States Food and Drug Administration before final judgements can be made on petitions for unlimited human consumption. Toxicity studies on several species of animals which are fed diets containing up to 35 Degree-Sign (dry solids basis) of the irradiated food in question have been included in this program. Investigations of two years duration on animals (rats, dogs and chickens) provide data concerning food consumption, growth rate, enzyme systems, haematology, gross pathology and histopathology. Shorter-term studies of a confirmatory nature on two animal species (rat and dog) are employed in certain cases when the irradiated food in question is sufficiently related to foods which have previously undergone long-term toxicity studies. Results to date of chronic toxicity studies on soft-shell clams and subacute toxicity studies on strawberries, apples, pears, sweet cherries, apricots, plums and onions are discussed. Microbiological studies have been concentrated primarily on potentially pathogenic organisms. Studies have been in progress to evaluate carefully the conditions governing radiation and heat resistance, sporulation, outgrowth and toxin production of Clostridium botulinum Type E. The natural incidence of Type E organisms in certain marine products and ocean environments is being investigated. Findings in the microbiological studies are discussed. Studies to date have indicated that the general outlook for wholesomeness of irradiated foods is favourable. Toxicity evaluations are currently being initiated on bananas, mangoes and papayas. Research efforts on Clostridium botulinum, Types E and F, Salmonellae and other potentially pathogenic organisms will continue. (author) [French] Afin de determiner le degre de securite biologique des produits alimentaires qui presentent un interet pour le programme de la Commission de l'energie atomique relatif aux produits alimentaires irradies, la Division de biologie et medecine de la Commission a organise des recherches depuis 1961. Des etudes ont ete entreprises sur la comestibilite, la microbiologie et la biochimie en vue de completer les donnees fournies par les travaux dans les domaines des realisations, de l'economie et de la technique organises par la Division des isotopes de la Commission. Lorsque les resultats obtenus semblent applicables a des produits alimentaires particuliers irradies a faible dose, des etudes sont entreprises pour fournir les donnees pertinentes requises par le service de controle des produits alimentaires et pharmaceutiques des Etats-Unis avant que des decisions definitives soient prises concernant les demandes visant a autoriser la consommation illimitee d'un produit par le public. Ce programme comprenait des etudes de toxicite sur plusieurs especes d'animaux soumis a des regimes alimentaires comprenant jusqu'a 35% (en matiere solide seche) du produit alimentaire irradie considere. Des recherches d'une duree de deux ans sur des animaux (rats, chiens et poulets) fournissent des donnees sur la consommation alimentaire, la croissance, les enzymes, l'hematologie, la pathologie generale et l'histo- pathologie. Des etudes a court terme, aux fins de confirmation, sur deux especes animales (rats et chiens) sont faites dans certains cas lorsque le produit alimentaire irradie considere a suffisamment de points communs avec des produits qui ont precedemment fait l'objet d'etudes de toxicite a long terme. Les donnees fournies jusqu'a ce jour par les etudes de toxicite chronique sur une variete de palourdes et par les etudes de toxicite subaiguee sur les fraises, les pommes, les poires, les cerises, les abricots, les prunes et les oignons font l'objet d'un examen critique. Les etudes microbiologiques ont porte principalement sur les organismes potentiellement pathogenes. L'auteur a poursuivi des etudes pour proceder a une evaluation minutieuse des conditions qui regissent la resistance aux rayonnements et a la chaleur, la sporulation, le developpement et la production de toxines de Clostridium botulinum E. L'auteur fait actuellement des recherches sur l'incidence naturelle d'organismes du type E dans certains produits marins et dans le milieu marin. Les constatations faites au cours des etudes microbiologiques font l'objet d'un examen critique. Les etudes effectuees jusqu'a present ont indique que les perspectives d'ensemble concernant la comestibilite des produits alimentaires irradies sont favorables. On entreprend actuellement des evaluations de toxicite sur les bananes, les mangues et les papayes. Les recherches se poursuivront sur Clostridium botulinum E et F, Salmonellae et autres organismes pathogenes.

    Code Bora for WWER coolant radiolysis calculation considering single jets boiling in the reactor core top part is developed on the basis of computer codes MOPABA-H2 (radiolysis of aqueous solutions) and SteamRad (radiolysis of vapor). Physico-chemical processes taking place in boiling core coolant are complex and diversified. Still, for the solution of certain problems their simulation can be simplified. The approach of reasonable simplification was used for development of code Bora: mathematical model assumed is purposed for simulation of phenomena only in the area of interest; the number of simulated chemical reactions and particles shall be reasonably minimum; complexity of interphase mass transfer calculation procedure shall be adequate to actually available accuracy of modeling. The analysis of new experimental initial yields of water radiolysis products data and kinetic parameters of elementary chemical reactions with their participation has been carried out. Some changes have been introduced in the mechanism of liquid water and aqueous solutions of ammonia radiolysis have been significantly revised on the basis of this analysis. Examples of the calculations provided for code Bora verification are presented. Despite of very simple simulation of interphase mass transfer, Bora allows to obtain average chemical composition of two-phase coolant at BWR core outlet with the accuracy sufficient for engineering calculations. The report also presents the results of two-phase coolant chemical composition test calculation for reactor core top part coolant boiling in pressurized water reactor. (author)

  6. Dispersal of Sediment in the Western Adriatic during Energetic Wintertime Forcing

    EuroSTRATAFORM aims to relate sediment delivery and reworking to seabed morphology and stratigraphy through observations and modeling of water column transport. The Po River dominates buoyancy and sediment input into the Adriatic Sea, but small Apeninne rivers (the Chienti, Pescara, etc.) may produce locally important signals. Sedimentation is influenced by fluvial supply, resuspension by waves and currents, and transport by oceanographic currents forced by winds and buoyancy. Transport is likely highest during times of energetic forcing; including Bora events with northeasterly winds and Sirocco events with southeasterly winds. It is difficult, from field measurements alone, to characterize dispersal and convergence patterns over the relevant spatial scales. We applied a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model that includes fluvial delivery, transport, resuspension, and deposition of sediment to quantify sediment dispersal with a 2-km resolution over the entire Adriatic. Circulation calculations were driven by spatially- and temporally-varying wind fields for the Fall / Winter of 2002 / 2003 and realistic Po and Apennine river discharges. Waves were hindcast with the SWAN model. Dispersion of both resuspended and river-derived sediment was estimated for periods that contained intense Bora and Sirocco winds. Predicted sediment dispersal rates and patterns are sensitive to forcing winds, buoyancy flux, and wave patterns. Higher sediment flux was predicted during Bora conditions than during Sirocco conditions. Sirocco winds weaken the Western Adriatic Coastal Current (WACC), and because they tend to concentrate over the Eastern Adriatic, they often fail to create especially energetic waves in the Western Adriatic. Bora wind conditions, on the other hand, intensify the WACC and can build high wave energies over the northwestern Adriatic. Most of the sediment transport occurs during Bora, with a net southward flux. These predictions will be compared to field observations

  7. Downwelling dynamics of the western Adriatic Coastal Current

    The western Adriatic coastal current (WACC) flows for hundreds of kilometers along the east coast of Italy at speeds of 20 to 100 cm/s. It is fed by the buoyancy input from the Po River and other rivers of the northern Adriatic Sea, with typical freshwater discharge rates of 2000 m**3/s. The Bora winds provide the dominant forcing agent of the WACC during the winter months, resulting in peak southeastward flows reaching 100 cm/s. The energy input of the Bora is principally in the northern Adriatic, and the coastal current response is due mainly to the set up of the pressure field, although there is sometimes an accompanying local component of down-coast winds that further augments the coastal current. Downwelling conditions occur during Bora, with or without local wind-forcing, because the bottom Ekman transport occurs in either case. Downwelling results in destratification of the coastal current, due to both vertical mixing and straining of the cross-shore density gradient. The relative contributions of mixing and straining depends on the value of the Kelvin number K=Lf/(g_Oh)**1/2, where L is the width of the coastal current, f is the Coriolis parameter, g_O is reduced gravity, and h is the plume thickness. For a narrow coastal current (KWACC during Bora events, with strain-induced destratification occurring in less than 24 hours. The straining process limits vertical mixing of the coastal current with the ambient Adriatic water, because once the isopycnals become vertical, no more mixing can occur. This limitation of mixing may explain the persistence of the density anomaly of the coastal current in the presence of high stresses. The straining process also has important implications for sediment transport: destratification allows sediment to be distributed throughout the water column during Bora events, resulting in enhanced down-coast fluxes. The influence of the downwelling dynamics on cross-shore sediment transport is still under examination.

    The paper explains the chronological account and the first results obtained in the R and D program on the mixing in the 900 MW PWR vessels. After the presentation of the plant type simulated, we define the numerical tool, the (Finite Element Modelling) FEM N3S code. Two results are presented with a comparison with the experiment results issued of the BORA BORA mock up. The first case is dealing with the isothermal steady state mixing in the vessel with the three loops mass flow rate balanced. This case identified as a validation of our numerical tool shows a good agreement. The second case is dealing with the transient mixing of a clear plug in the vessel when one primary pump starts-up. We compare the numerical and experiment results giving the mean boron concentration at the core inlet for several clear water plugs. The results show again a good agreement.

    Ceraesignum maximum (G.B. Sowerby I, 1825), formerly Dendropoma maximum, was subject to a sudden, massive die-off in the Society Islands, French Polynesia, in 2015. On Mo'orea, where we have detailed documentation of the die-off, these gastropods were previously found in densities up to 165 m-2. In July 2015, we surveyed shallow back reefs of Mo'orea before, during and after the die-off, documenting their swift decline. All censused populations incurred 100% mortality. Additional surveys and observations from Mo'orea, Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Huahine (but not Taha'a) suggested a similar, and approximately simultaneous, die-off. The cause(s) of this cataclysmic mass mortality are currently unknown. Given the previously documented negative effects of C. maximum on corals, we expect the die-off will have cascading effects on the reef community.

  10. Relevance and Benefits of Urban Water Reuse in Tourist Areas

    Gaston Tong Sang

    2012-01-01

    Full Text Available Urban water reuse is one of the most rapidly growing water reuse applications worldwide and one of the major elements of the sustainable management of urban water cycle. Because of the high probability of direct contact between consumers and recycled water, many technical and regulatory challenges have to be overcome in order to minimize health risks at affordable cost. This paper illustrates the keys to success of one of the first urban water reuse projects in the island Bora Bora, French Polynesia. Special emphasis is given on the reliability of operation of the membrane tertiary treatment, economic viability in terms of pricing of recycled water and operating costs, as well as on the benefits of water reuse for the sustainable development of tourist areas.

  19. Safety barriers on oil and gas platforms. Means to prevent hydrocarbon releases

    2005-12-15

    The main objective of the PhD project has been to develop concepts and methods that can be used to define, illustrate, analyse, and improve safety barriers in the operational phase of offshore oil and gas production platforms. The main contributions of this thesis are; Clarification of the term safety barrier with respect to definitions, classification, and relevant attributes for analysis of barrier performance Development and discussion of a representative set of hydrocarbon release scenarios Development and testing of a new method, BORA-Release, for qualitative and quantitative risk analysis of hydrocarbon releases Safety barriers are defined as physical and/or non-physical means planned to prevent, control, or mitigate undesired events or accidents. The means may range from a single technical unit or human actions, to a complex socio-technical system. It is useful to distinguish between barrier functions and barrier systems. Barrier functions describe the purpose of safety barriers or what the safety barriers shall do in order to prevent, control, or mitigate undesired events or accidents. Barrier systems describe how a barrier function is realized or executed. If the barrier system is functioning, the barrier function is performed. If a barrier function is performed successfully, it should have a direct and significant effect on the occurrence and/or consequences of an undesired event or accident. It is recommended to address the following attributes to characterize the performance of safety barriers; a) functionality/effectiveness, b) reliability/ availability, c) response time, d) robustness, and e) triggering event or condition. For some types of barriers, not all the attributes are relevant or necessary in order to describe the barrier performance. The presented hydrocarbon release scenarios include initiating events, barrier functions introduced to prevent hydrocarbon releases, and barrier systems realizing the barrier functions. Both technical and human

  20. Intense air-sea exchanges and heavy orographic precipitation over Italy: The role of Adriatic sea surface temperature uncertainty

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stocchi, Paolo; Davolio, Silvio

    2017-11-01

    Strong and persistent low-level winds blowing over the Adriatic basin are often associated with intense precipitation events over Italy. Typically, in case of moist southeasterly wind (Sirocco), rainfall affects northeastern Italy and the Alpine chain, while with cold northeasterly currents (Bora) precipitations are localized along the eastern slopes of the Apennines and central Italy coastal areas. These events are favoured by intense air-sea interactions and it is reasonable to hypothesize that the Adriatic sea surface temperature (SST) can affect the amount and location of precipitation. High-resolution simulations of different Bora and Sirocco events leading to severe precipitation are performed using a convection-permitting model (MOLOCH). Sensitivity experiments varying the SST initialization field are performed with the aim of evaluating the impact of SST uncertainty on precipitation forecasts, which is a relevant topic for operational weather predictions, especially at local scales. Moreover, diagnostic tools to compute water vapour fluxes across the Italian coast and atmospheric water budget over the Adriatic Sea have been developed and applied in order to characterize the air mass that feeds the precipitating systems. Finally, the investigation of the processes through which the SST influences location and intensity of heavy precipitation allows to gain a better understanding on mechanisms conducive to severe weather in the Mediterranean area and in the Adriatic basin in particular. Results show that the effect of the Adriatic SST (uncertainty) on precipitation is complex and can vary considerably among different events. For both Bora and Sirocco events, SST does not influence markedly the atmospheric water budget or the degree of moistening of air that flows over the Adriatic Sea. SST mainly affects the stability of the atmospheric boundary layer, thus influencing the flow dynamics and the orographic flow regime, and in turn, the precipitation pattern.

  1. Near-surface wind pattern in regional climate projections over the broader Adriatic region

    The Adriatic region is characterized by the complex coastline, strong topographic gradients and specific wind regimes. This represents excellent test area for the latest generation of the regional climate models (RCMs) applied over the European domain. The most famous wind along the Adriatic coast is bora, which due to its strength, has a strong impact on all types of human activities in the Adriatic region. The typical bora wind is a severe gusty downslope flow perpendicular to the mountains. Besides bora, in the Adriatic region, typical winds are sirocco (mostly during the wintertime) and sea/land breezes (dominantly in the warm part of the year) as a part of the regional Mediterranean wind system. Thus, it is substantial to determine future changes in the wind filed characteristics (e.g., changes in strength and frequencies). The first step was the evaluation of a suite of ten EURO- and MED-CORDEX models (at 50 km and 12.5 km resolution), and two additional high resolution models from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich (ETHZ, at 12.5 km and 2.2. km resolution) in the present climate. These results provided a basis for the next step where wind field features, in an ensemble of RCMs forced by global climate models (GCMs) in historical and future runs are examined. Our aim is to determine the influence of the particular combination of RCMs and GCMs, horizontal resolution and emission scenario on the future changes in the near-surface wind field. The analysis reveals strong sensitivity of the simulated wind flow and its statistics to both season and location analyzed, to the horizontal resolution of the RCM and on the choice of the particular GCM that provides boundary conditions.

    The utility of the bis-metallating reagent 1,3-dimethyl-2-trimethylstannyl-2-bora-1,3-diazacyclopentane (1) has not been fully realized because of the hydrolytic instability of the products derived from catalyzed vicinal syn-additions to alkynes. The isolation of variety of such adducts derived from alkynes (and also from hitherto unreported additions to 1,3-enynes) as stable boron pinacolates is reported. Examples of the applications of resulting products in tandem cross-coupling reactions and as dienes in Diels-Alder reactions are illustrated. PMID:20459076

    Full Text Available Instrumentalne metode analize nezamjenjive su u znanstvenim istraživanjima, a sve više i u praksi gdje se zahtijeva što brže dobivanje rezultata, kao i što veća točnost. U metalurškoj praksi već se dulji niz godina primjenjuju spektrometrijske metode analize i to najčešće optička emisijska spektrometrija s izravnim očitanjem. Međutim koncentracija pojedinih legirnih elemenata u suvremenim metalnim materijalima vrlo je niska, često niža od granice detekcije optičkih emisijskih spektrometara s izravnim očitanjem.

    Full Text Available Autobiography is a personal literary genre. There are not only real facts from the life of an individual, but also fantasy. This paper analyses the existence of aesthetics, historic, autobiographical and publishing style at the novel “One night and two daysprings” and “Interview with himself ” from Petro Marko. The aim of this paper is to point out the similarities of these two works in several areas and to show the talent of Petro Marko in using autobiographical data that show his creative consciousness. He uses several elements like: narrative, the game with calendar time, etc., to create the link between real and imaginary facts. His novel bears conflicts, political issues, social and vital such as fascism and anti-fascist forces, imprisonment, poverty etc. “One night and two daysprings”/”Night of Ustika”, proved these facts not only for Albanians but for all peoples of Europe and the world. His realistic characters embody certain social psychology and characteristics of Albanian mentality. Such are: Gori Gjinleka (Hasta la vista, Andrea Bora (Night of Ustika/One night and two day-springs, Leka Gura (Last City, which stand for human living tempers, especially in relation to love. This peper analyses facts that show similarity in the life of the author Petro Marko and the character Andrew Bora. Some of them are: their profession as a writer, imprisonment in Ustika etc.

    In 1991 a R and D action, based on numerical simulations and experiments on PWRs'S primary coolant temperature or boron mixing capabilities, was initiated. This paper presents the test facility BORA-BORA (a 1/5th scaled mock-up of a 900 MW PWR vessel) and the Thermalhydraulic Finite Element Code N3S used for 3D calculations performed on the accurate geometry of the plant. As a validation test case of these experimental and numerical tools, we present the results obtained on the primary coolant mixing capabilities in the vessel with the three loops balanced in mass flow rate. The second part of this report deals with the mixing of a clear water plug in the vessel when a primary coolant pump start-up. The results are obtained in the mock-up in terms of boron concentration at the core inlet for several clear water plug volumes. The numerical results give the complete fluid flow and boron concentration patterns but comparisons were made at the core inlet. (author). 15 refs., 9 figs., 1 tab

  16. Assessment of current effect on waves in a semi-enclosed basin

    2012-04-01

    The wave-current interaction process in the semi-enclosed Adriatic Sea is studied using the Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere-Wave-Sediment Transport (COAWST) modeling system, which is used to exchange data fields between the ocean model ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling System) and the wave model SWAN (Simulating WAves Nearshore). The 2-way data transfer between circulation and wave models is synchronous with ROMS providing current fields, free surface elevation, and bathymetry to SWAN. In particular, the 3-D current profiles are averaged using a formulation that integrates the near-surface velocity over a depth controlled by the spectral mean wave number. This coupling procedure is carried out up to coastal areas by means of an offline grid nesting. The parent grid covers the whole Adriatic Sea and has a horizontal resolution of 2.0 km, whereas the child grid resolution increases to 0.5 km but it is limited to the northern Adriatic Sea (Gulf of Venice), where the current effect on waves is investigated. The most frequent winds blowing on the Adriatic Sea are the so-called Bora and Sirocco which cause high waves in the Adriatic Sea, although Bora waves are generally fetch-limited. In fact, Bora winds blow orthogonal to the main basin axis (approximately aligned with the NW-SE direction), while Sirocco has large spatial scale being a southeasterly wind. For the numerical simulations, the meteorological forcings are provided by the operational meteorological model COSMO-I7, which is the Italian version of the COSMO Model, a mesoscale model developed in the framework of the COSMO Consortium. During the analysis period, the simulated wind, current and wave are compared with observations at the ISMAR oceanographic tower located off the Venice littoral. Wave heights and sea surface winds are also compared with satellite-derived data. To account for the variability of sea states during a storm, the expected maximum individual wave height in a sea storm with a given history is also

Por outro lado, aqueles provenientes do hospedeiro-fonte atingem a fase floemática mais rapidamente e apresentam maior frequência de alimentação nos vasos crivados. Esses resultados indicam a presença do fenômeno de condicionamento alimentar, ainda não demonstrado em cochonilhas. Assim, o presente trabalho teve como objetivo determinar a existência desse fenômeno em Planococcus citri (Risso (Hemiptera: Pseudococcidae. Foram realizados testes de livre escolha, monitoramento eletrônico (EPG e estudos de alguns parâmetros biológicos. Em todos os experimentos, o cafeeiro (Coffea arabica L., os citros (Citrus sinensis L. e abóbora (Cucurbita maxima L. foram utilizados como substratos de criação (fonte da cochonilha, sendo os tratamentos constituídos pela combinação entre os hospedeiros-fonte e os hospedeiros receptores (café e citros. O teste de escolha entre cafeeiro e citros nas primeiras 72 horas mostrou que as cochonilhas criadas em cafeeiro apresentaram preferência pelo cafeeiro; aquelas originadas dos citros mostraram uma tendência, embora não significativa, em selecionar os citros em relação ao cafeeiro e aquelas criadas em abóbora não mostraram preferência por nenhum dos hospedeiros. Os estudos do comportamento alimentar mediante o monitoramento eletrônico (EPG mostraram que a fase floemática, considerada como a fase de aceitação do hospedeiro, foi mais frequente em cafeeiro, seja com cochonilhas oriundas deste substrato, seja de citros. Aqueles insetos mantidos em abóbora e transferidos para o cafeeiro ou citros apresentaram excepcionalmente ou não apresentaram nenhuma fase floemática, respectivamente. A

    Full Text Available Crude ethanolic extracts (CEEs from two species of Cucurbitaceae, Cucurbita maxima and Momordica charantia (commonly called "abóbora moranga" and melão de São Caetano", respectively were assayed for antimalarial activity by the 4-d suppressive test. The CEE of dry C. maxima seeds showed strong antimalarial activity following oral administration (259 and 500 mg/kg, reducing by 50% the levels of parasistemia in Plasmodium berghey-infected mice. Treatment of normal animals with 500 mg/Kg of the extract three days before intravenous injection of P. berghei caused a significant 30% reduction in parasitemic levels. No effect was observed when the animals were treated with the CEE only on the day of inoculation. Oral administration of the CEE of dry M. charantia leaves adminstered orally was ineffective up to 500 mg/Kg in lowering the parasitemic levels of malarious mice.

    Training health professionals in leadership and management skills is a key component of health systems strengthening in low-resource settings. The importance of evaluating the effectiveness of these programs has received increased attention over the past several years, although such evaluations continue to pose significant challenges. This article presents evaluation data from the pilot year of the Afya Bora Fellowship, an African-based training program to increase the leadership capacity of health professionals. Firstly, we describe the goals of the Afya Bora Fellowship. Then, we present an adaptation of the transtheoretical model for behavior change called the Health Leadership Development Model, as an analytical lens to identify and describe evidence of individual leadership behavior change among training participants during and shortly after the pilot year of the program. The Health Leadership Development Model includes the following: pre-contemplation (status quo), contemplation (testing and internalizing leadership), preparation - (moving toward leadership), action (leadership in action), and maintenance (effecting organizational change). We used data from surveys, in-depth interviews, journal entries and course evaluations as data points to populate the Health Leadership Development Model. In the short term, fellows demonstrated increased leadership development during and shortly after the intervention and reflected the contemplation, preparation and action stages of the Health Leadership Development Model. However, expanded interventions and/or additional time may be needed to support behavior change toward the maintenance stages. We conclude that the Health Leadership Development Model is useful for informing health leadership training design and evaluation to contribute to sustainable health organizational change. © The Author(s) 2014.

    In the Guadeloupe and Saint Martin islands, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes are the only recognized vectors of dengue, chikungunya, and Zika viruses. For around 40 years, malathion was used as a mosquito adulticide and temephos as a larvicide. Since the European Union banned the use of these two insecticide molecules in the first decade of the 21st century, deltamethrin and Bacillus thuringiensis var. israelensis are the remaining adulticide and larvicide, respectively, used in Guadeloupe. In order to improve the management of vector control activities in Guadeloupe and Saint Martin, we investigated Ae. aegypti resistance to and mechanisms associated with deltamethrin, malathion, and temephos. Ae. aegypti mosquitoes were collected from six different localities of Guadeloupe and Saint Martin. Larvae were used for malathion and temephos bioassays, and adult mosquitoes for deltamethrin bioassays, following World Health Organization recommendations. Knockdown resistance (Kdr) genotyping for V1016I and F1534C mutations, and expression levels of eight enzymes involved in detoxification mechanisms were examined in comparison with the susceptible reference Bora Bora strain. Resistance ratios (RR 50 ) calculated for Ae. aegypti larvae showed high resistance levels to temephos (from 8.9 to 33.1-fold) and low resistance levels to malathion (from 1.7 to 4.4-fold). Adult females displayed moderate resistance levels to deltamethrin regarding the time necessary to affect 50% of individuals, varying from 8.0 to 28.1-fold. Molecular investigations on adult mosquitoes showed high resistant allele frequencies for V1016I and F1534C (from 85 to 96% and from 90 to 98%, respectively), as well as an overexpression of the glutathione S-transferase gene, GSTe2, the carboxylesterase CCEae3a, and the cytochrome genes 014614, CYP6BB2, CYP6M11, and CYP9J23. Ae. aegypti populations from Guadeloupe and Saint Martin exhibit multiple resistance to organophosphates (temephos and malathion), and

Hence, the need to equip health care providers with practical skills required to lead high-impact health care programs. In Uganda, the Afya Bora Global Health Leadership Fellowship is implemented through the Makerere University College of Health Sciences (MakCHS) and her partner institutions. Lessons learned from the program, presented in this paper, may guide development of in-service training opportunities to enhance leadership skills of health workers in resource-limited settings. The Afya Bora Consortium, a consortium of four African and four U.S. academic institutions, offers 1-year global health leadership-training opportunities for nurses and doctors. Applications are received and vetted internationally by members of the consortium institutions in Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and the USA. Fellows have 3 months of didactic modules and 9 months of mentored field attachment with 80% time dedicated to fellowship activities. Fellows' projects and experiences, documented during weekly mentor-fellow meetings and monthly mentoring team meetings, were compiled and analyzed manually using pre-determined themes to assess the effect of the program on fellows' daily leadership opportunities. Between January 2011 and January 2015, 15 Ugandan fellows (nine doctors and six nurses) participated in the program. Each fellow received 8 weeks of didactic modules held at one of the African partner institutions and three online modules to enhance fellows' foundation in leadership, communication, monitoring and evaluation, health informatics, research methodology, grant writing, implementation science, and responsible conduct of research. In addition, fellows embarked on innovative projects that covered a wide spectrum of global health challenges including critical analysis of policy formulation and review processes

    Full Text Available This article, whose title is so generic, does not intend to be an exhaustive and historiographic list of women authoring contemporary Spanish comics. A priori, the deficiencies of the global label “woman comic” are questioned and the representative work of a group of draftswomen and scriptwriters is shown, since the 1980 decade (Madriz, El Cairo and El Víbora to nowadays publications: Laura Pérez-Vernetti, Ana Juan, Ana Miralles, Sonia Pulido and Clara- Tanit. These authors are linked by a generational bond and offer a series of sights, paintstrokes, subjects and diverse plastic styles. The woman production phenomenon is observed along with its reception in ad hoc-collections published by some publishing houses through retrospectives, symposium and exhibitions which are still alerting about the so needed visibility. At the same time, both the atraction and the tendency towards the drawing art and equally the links between comic made by women and the concept related to the author comic, literature and egotistic tales are studied too.

    We describe a method for solid-phase extraction of biogenic thiols using multi-walled carbon nanotubes as adsorbent, and their subsequent determination via HPLC and fluorescence detection. The fluorogenic reagent N-(4,4-difluoro-5,7-dimethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene-3-yl)methyl) iodoacetamide was applied to derivatizate the thiols. The type of eluent and its volume, the sample pH, extraction time and sample volume were optimized. The calibration curves of the thiols are linear in the range from 0. 5 to 200 nM (for glutathione), 0. 02 to 5 nM (for cysteine), and 2 to 500 nM (for acetylcysteine), and the correlation coefficients range between 0. 9955 and 0. 9997. The respective limits of detection are 20 pM, 4 pM and 80 pM (at an SNR of 3), and the limits of quatification are 67 pM, 13 pM, and 267 pM (at an SNR of 10). Recoveries range from 85.0% to 113.1% for human urine and plasma samples spiked with the three thiols, and relative standard deviations are in the range from 2.1 to 7.4%. (author)

    Highlights: • BODIPY was synthesized, and then attached to magnetic nanoparticles. • Ni(II) ions were chelated on prepared material. • The binding of cytochrome c to obtained material was studied. - Abstract: In this study, 3,5-{Bis[4,4-difluoro, 8-(2,6-diethyl, 1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene)]}benzoylchloride (BODIPY) was synthesized for the improving of a new immobilized metal affinity supporting material. Firstly, the synthesized BODIPY was immobilized on iron oxide superparamagnetic nanoparticles (SPIONs) and then, Ni(II) ions were chelated with the active terminals of BODIPY on nanoparticles surfaces to prepare an immobilized metal affinity (IMA) adsorbent for protein adsorption. The amount of BODIPY coated on SPIONs was about 29.7 μM at 10 mg nanoparticles. 738 μmol of Ni(II) ions were loaded to 10 mg of the SPIONs/BODIPY. The binding amount of cytochrome c was found to be 170 μg to the SPIONs/BODIPY/Ni at pH 7.4. The binding amount of the molecules on SPIONs was analyzed by using UV–vis, fluorescence and atomic absorption spectroscopy. The characterization of the prepared surfaces was performed by FT-IR, SEM and TEM.

    This paper examines long-term series of in situ sea surface temperature (SST) data measured at nine coastal and one open sea stations along the eastern Adriatic Sea for the period 1959-2015. Monthly and yearly averages were used to document SST trends and variability, while clustering and connections to hemispheric indices were achieved by applying the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) and Self-Organizing Maps (SOM) method. Both PCA and SOM revealed the dominance of temporal changes with respect to the effects of spatial differences in SST anomalies, indicating the prevalence of hemispheric processes over local dynamics, such as bora wind spatial inhomogeneity. SST extremes were connected with blocking atmospheric patterns. A substantial warming between 1979 and 2015, in total exceeding 1 °C, was preceded by a period with a negative SST trend, implying strong multidecadal variability in the Adriatic. The strongest connection was found between yearly SST and the East Atlantic (EA) pattern, while North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) and East Atlantic/West Russia (EAWR) patterns were found to also affect February SST values. Quantification of the Adriatic SST and their connection to hemispheric indices allow for more precise projections of future SST, considered to be rather important for Adriatic thermohaline circulation, biogeochemistry and fisheries, and sensitive to ongoing climate change.

  6. On the use of the hybrid causal logic method in offshore risk analysis

    2009-01-01

    In the Norwegian offshore oil and gas industry risk analyses have been used to provide decision support for more than 20 years. The focus has traditionally been on the planning phase, but during the last years a need for better risk analysis methods for the operational phase has been identified. Such methods should take human and organizational factors into consideration in a more explicit way than the traditional risk analysis methods do. Recently, a framework, called hybrid causal logic (HCL), has been developed based on traditional risk analysis tools combined with Bayesian belief networks (BBNs), using the aviation industry as a case. This paper reviews this framework and discusses its applicability for the offshore industry, and the relationship to existing research projects, such as the barrier and operational risk analysis project (BORA). The paper also addresses specific features of the framework and suggests a new approach for the probability assignment process. This approach simplifies the assignment process considerably without loosing the flexibility that is needed to properly reflect the phenomena being studied

    Nonenveloped viruses are generally released from the cell by the timely lysis of host cell membranes. SV40 has been used as a model virus for the study of the lytic nonenveloped virus life cycle. The expression of SV40 VP4 at later times during infection is concomitant with cell lysis. To investigate the role of VP4 in viral release and its mechanism of action, VP4 was expressed and purified from bacteria as a fusion protein for use in membrane disruption assays. Purified VP4 perforated membranes as demonstrated by the release of fluorescent markers encapsulated within large unilamellar vesicles or liposomes. Dynamic light scattering results revealed that VP4 treatment did not cause membrane lysis or change the size of the liposomes. Liposomes encapsulated with 4,4-difluoro-5,7-dimethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-3-indacene-labeled streptavidin were used to show that VP4 formed stable pores in membranes. These VP4 pores had an inner diameter of 1-5 nm. Asymmetrical liposomes containing pyrene-labeled lipids in the outer monolayer were employed to monitor transbilayer lipid diffusion. Consistent with VP4 forming toroidal pore structures in membranes, VP4 induced transbilayer lipid diffusion or lipid flip-flop. Altogether, these studies support a central role for VP4 acting as a viroporin in the disruption of cellular membranes to trigger SV40 viral release by forming toroidal pores that unite the outer and inner leaflets of membrane bilayers.

    2018-03-01

    Full Text Available Research objective: Linguistic analysis of the Crimean Tatar language in official documents against the backdrop of the literary and written traditions of the Golden Horde, a polity to which the Crimean ulus belonged for quite a long time. Research materials: The yarlik of the Crimean khan, Bora Gaza Girey, which we transliterated and translated into Russian, is used as an illustrative text. The language of this yarlik makes it possible to analyze the lexical and grammatical changes in the written language of the Golden Horde which occurred in Crimea under local and Ottoman dialectical influences. Being subjected to changes of this kind, the Golden Horde’s Türki can already be defined as having shifted to the Crimean mixed-Türki of the stated period. The study of the language of the Crimean khans’ yalriks and the parallel study of the language of other Crimean official documents provide an accurate picture of the language processes in the Crimea during the period of the Crimean Khanate, not only at the level of written language, but also at the level of the spoken one. Results and novelty of the research: The efforts of the author on the analysis of the Crimean variant of the Türki language were undertaken for the first time in Turkic studies. As a result, the author revealed not only the substrata of the Ottoman, but also the local Oghuz-Kypchak dialect, recorded in the Codex Cumanicus.

    Large areas in South East Europe offer perfect conditions for the Utilisation of Wind Energy. Local wind systems like ''Bora'', which occurs along the Adriatic Sea, or ''Koshava'', which flows between the ridge of the Carpathian Mountains and the Balkan Mountains from Romania over to Serbia, are generated through differences in pressure and temperature between the adjacent regions. Those wind systems therefore can be described as 'home made' and have very individual characteristics. Despite the excellent wind conditions of those locations, the mainly cliffy and complex terrain and the extreme wind conditions with turbulences and strong gusts make great demands on the design and operation of the wind turbines. Exactly those problems the European Commission asked to be investigated and therefore defined 'Complex terrain and local wind systems' as one of the research topics in the last call of the 6th Framework Programme. Under the lead management of Verein Energiewerkstatt, a consortium of ten partners from seven middle- and southeast European countries took part in this call for proposals and received acceptance for the submitted Project ''SEEWIND - South-East European Wind Energy Exploitation''.

    Full Text Available Replicated three times, the research was conducted in the experimental field between 2011 and 2014. Three soil conditioners with the following trade names: UGmax, Eko-Użyźniacz, and Humus Active Papka were used in the experiment, separately or together with NPK fertilisers. They were all used on plots sown with two species of grass, Dactylis glomerata of the Bora variety and Lolium perenne of the Info variety. The plant material from both grass species was tested for the concentration of ADL fraction (% DM, cellulose (% DM, and hemicellulose (% DM. It was found that the concentration of cellulose, hemicelluloses, and the ADL fraction was significantly higher in the biomass of Dactylis glomerata than in the biomass of Lolium perenne. The grass from the plot with the UGmax soil conditioner applied had the highest amount of cellulose and hemicellulose. The lowest amount of those organic compounds was found in the grass treated with UGmax together with mineral fertilisers and in plants treated with Humus Active, together with mineral fertilisers. However, the fertilisers and conditioners did not increase the ADL content in both grass species.

    In the present study four BODIPY (boron dipyrromethene: 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene) dyes with π-extended substituents in C-8 position were investigated in solvents and polymer mediums. High aggregation degree was observed for the dyes in the solid state. Association and twisted intramolecular charge transfer processes were found to affect the spectral properties of the compounds causing bathochromic shifts in absorption and fluorescence spectra. The extension of substituent π-conjugation gains molecular association evoked presumably by π-π interaction between the substituents of the adjacent molecules. Photostability of the complexes in different forms was analyzed and the distorted form stabilized by polymer matrix was found to be the most stable. The substituent nature did not affect strongly the photostability of dyes. Displacement of monomer-associate equilibrium in hybrid materials with polymethylmethacrylate and poly(9-vinylcarbazole) was exploited for tuning spectral characteristics of the materials. Two dyes readily forming aggregates at the lowest concentrations were applied for the fabrication of organic light-emitting diodes. The fabricated devices exhibited electroluminescence in the appropriate spectral ranges with moderate efficiency. - Highlights: • Four BODIPY dyes with π-extended substituents in 8-position were investigated in solvents and polymers. • Substituent influence on photophysical properties and photostability of the compounds are discussed. • Aggregation induced spectral changes were observed. • Displacement of monomer-aggregate equilibrium was exploited for tuning electroluminescent characteristics of OLED devices.

    Full Text Available Among several alternative agricultural systems have been developed, organic agriculture has deserved increasing interest from. The objective of this paper was comparing both organic (OS and conventional (CS tomato cropping systems for varieties Débora and Santa Clara, through an interdisciplinary study. The experiment was set up in a randomized blocks design with six replicates, in a dystrophic Ultisol plots measuring 25 ´ 17 m. Cropping procedures followed by either local conventional or organic growers practices recommendations. Fertilization in the OS was done with organic compost, single superphosphate, dolomitic limes (5L, 60 g, and 60 g per pit, and sprayed twice a week with biofertilizer. Fertilization in the CS was done with 200 g 4-14-8 (NPK per pit and, after planting, 30 g N, 33 g K and 10.5 g P per pit; from 52 days after planting forth, plants were sprayed once a week with foliar fertilizer. In the CS, a blend of insecticides, fungicides and miticides was sprayed twice a week, after planting. In the OS, extracts of black pepper, garlic, and Eucalyptus; Bordeaux mixture, and biofertilizer, were applied twice a week to control diseases and pests. Tomato spotted wilt was the most important disease in the OS, resulting in smaller plant development, number of flower clusters and yield. In the CS, the disease was kept under control, and the population of thrips, the virus vector, occurred at lower levels than in the OS. Variety Santa Clara presented greater incidence of the viral disease, and for this reason had a poorer performance than 'Débora', especially in the OS. Occurrence of Liriomyza spp. was significantly smaller in the OS, possibly because of the greater frequency of Chrysoperla. The CS had smaller incidence of leaf spots caused by Septoria lycopersici and Xanthomonas vesicatoria. However, early blight and fruit rot caused by Alternaria solani occurred in larger numbers. No differences were observed with regard to the

    Full Text Available Conjugated polymers containing distinct molecular units are expected to be very interesting because of their unique properties endowed by these units and the formed conjugated polymers. Herein, four new conjugated copolymers based on fluorene and 4,4’-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY have been designed and synthesized via Sonogashira polymerization. The fluorene unit was attached to the 3,5- or 2,6-positions of BODIPY by ethynylenes or p-diacetylenebenzene. The obtained polymers show good thermal stability and broad absorption in the wavelength range from 300 to 750 nm. The effects of site-selective copolymerization and conjugation length along the polymer backbone on the optoelectronic and electrochemical properties of these copolymers were systematically studied by UV-Vis spectroscopy, photoluminescence (PL and cyclic voltammetry. Besides, it is found that the BODIPY-based copolymers exhibit selectively sensitive responses to cyanide anions, resulting in obvious change of UV-Vis absorption spectra and significant fluorescence quenching of the polymers among various common anions.

  17. Isolation and Fatty Acid Profile of Selected Microalgae Strains from the Red Sea for Biofuel Production

    Full Text Available The isolation of lipid-rich autochthonous strains of microalgae is a crucial stage for the development of a microalgae-based biofuel production plant, as these microalgae already have the necessary adaptations to withstand competition, predation and the temperatures observed at each production site. This is particularly important in extreme climates such as in Saudi Arabia. Resorting to fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS we screened for and isolated several microalgal strains from samples collected from the Red Sea. Relying on the fluorescence of BODIPY 505/515 (4,4-difluoro-1,3,5,7-tetramethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diazasindacene and growth performance, four promising candidates were identified and the total lipid content and fatty acid profile was assessed for biofuels production. Selected isolates were classified as chlorophytes, belonging to three different genera: Picochlorum, Nannochloris and Desmochloris. The lipid contents were assessed microscopically by means of BODIPY 505/515-associated fluorescence to detect intracellular lipid bodies, which revealed several lipid drops in all selected strains. This result was confirmed by lipid gravimetric determination, which demonstrated that all strains under study presented inner cell lipid contents ranging from 20% to 25% of the biomass dry weight. Furthermore, the fatty acid methyl esters profile of all strains seems ideal for biodiesel production due to a low degree of polyunsaturated fatty acid methyl esters and high amount of palmitic and oleic acids.

    Full Text Available We developed an asymmetric fluorescent sensor 1 for Cu2+, based on 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY, by introducing 4-carboxyphenyl and bis(pyridin-2-ylmethylamine groups at the 5- and 3-positions, respectively, of the BODIPY core. We then investigated the photophysical and cation-sensing properties of the sensor. BODIPY 1 showed large absorption and fluorescence spectral shifts on binding to Cu2+. The fluorescence peak at 580 nm red-shifted to 620 nm. The binding stoichiometry of BODIPY 1 and Cu2+ was 1:3. The ratio of the fluorescence intensity at 620 nm to that at 580 nm (F620/F580 increased with increasing concentration of Cu2+ (3–10 equiv; this enabled ratiometric determination of Cu2+. Although BODIPY 1 showed good selectivity for Cu2+, there was an interfering effect of Fe3+. BODIPY 1 could be used for the naked-eye detection of Cu2+ in a water-containing sample.

    Full Text Available The paper describes the distribution and ecology of populations of the genus Batrachospermum collected in Serbia from 2006 to 2015 at 10 sites, all of which represent new localities of Batrachospermum in Serbia. The records of this genus in the Boračka River and in a spring near Kragujevac (Cerovac are the first in Central Serbia. Batrachospermum was recorded at altitudes of from 235 to 1600 m at localities mainly in partial or full shade on stone, gravel or concrete substrata in cold water (10.50 - 15.40oC that was neutral to weakly alkaline (pH 7.2 – 8.65 with conductivity of from 55 to 539 μS/cm. Species of the genus Batrachospermum in Serbia have to date been recorded in clean, well-aerated waters with a low concentration of biogenic salts and in habitats without anthropogenic impact. Any factors altering abiotic parameters of their habitats can lead to changes and the loss of populations of the sensitive species of this genus.

    Full Text Available O Instituto Nacional de Alimentação e Nutrição (Inan está propondo o uso, em nível nacional, de fórmula de alimentação alternativa, denominada "Multimistura", à base de farelos de arroz, e/ou trigo, sementes de gergelim e abóbora, folhas de mandioca, beterraba, cenoura, verduras nativas e pó de casca de ovo, como solução para combater a fome da população carente. Embora o crítico estado nutricional da população-alvo possa fazer qualquer questionamento técnico ou ético parecer por demais filosófico, uma série de considerações nutricionais, toxicológicas e até de viabilidade prática sugerem que a posição adotada pelo Inan deveria ser revista. A solução da multimistura, talvez válida para situações transitórias de extrema pobreza, carece de universalidade para ser utilizada, independentemente de faixa etária, estado nutricional e período de duração da intervenção.

    A new interface engineering method is demonstrated for the preparation of an efficient white organic light-emitting diode (WOLED) by embedding an ultrathin layer of the novel ambipolar red emissive compound 4,4-difluoro-2,6-di(4-hexylthiopen-2-yl)-1,3,5,7,8-pentamethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (bThBODIPY) in the exciplex formation region. The compound shows a hole and electron mobility of 3.3 × 10 -4 and 2 × 10 -4 cm 2 V -1 s -1 , respectively, at electric fields higher than 5.3 × 10 5 V cm -1 . The resulting WOLED exhibited a maximum luminance of 6579 cd m -2 with CIE 1931 color coordinates (0.39; 0.35). The bThBODIPY dye is also demonstrated to be an effective laser dye for a cholesteric liquid crystal (ChLC) laser. New construction of the ChLC laser, by which a flat capillary with an optically isotropic dye solution is sandwiched between two dye-free ChLC cells, provides photonic lasing at a wavelength well matched with that of a dye-doped planar ChLC cell.

  6. From Dark to Light to Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET): Polarity-Sensitive Aggregation-Induced Emission (AIE)-Active Tetraphenylethene-Fused BODIPY Dyes with a Very Large Pseudo-Stokes Shift.

    The work presented herein is devoted to the fabrication of large Stokes shift dyes in both organic and aqueous media by combining dark resonance energy transfer (DRET) and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) in one donor-acceptor system. In this respect, a series of donor-acceptor architectures of 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) dyes substituted by one, two, or three tetraphenylethene (TPE) luminogens were designed and synthesised. The photophysical properties of these three chromophore systems were studied to provide insight into the nature of donor-acceptor interactions in both THF and aqueous media. Because the generation of emissive TPE donor(s) is strongly polarity dependent, due to its aggregation-induced emission (AIE) feature, one might expect the formation of appreciable fluorescence emission intensity with a very large pseudo-Stokes shift in aqueous media when considering FRET process. Interestingly, similar results were also recorded in THF for the chromophore systems, although the TPE fragment(s) of the dyes are non-emissive. The explanation for this photophysical behaviour lies in the DRET. This is the first report on combining two energy-transfer processes, namely, FRET and DRET, in one polarity-sensitive donor-acceptor pair system. The accuracy of the dark-emissive donor property of the TPE luminogen is also presented for the first time as a new feature for AIE phenomena. © 2016 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

As mercadorias são destinadas aos atacadistas, que podem também ser produtores rurais ou apenas intermediários. O tomate possui grande representatividade de comercialização dentro dessas centrais de abastecimento. A partir de questionários, identificou-se o perfil dos comerciantes de tomate de mesa na CEAGESP. Constatou-se que 45,8% dos entrevistados possuem um volume médio de tomate comercializado durante o ano maior que 10.000 toneladas, sendo que, desses, 70,8% possuem produção própria de tomate. As cultivares Carmen e Débora foram as líderes de comercialização no período avaliado. Os resultados apontaram que os atacadistas comercializam com mais de um tipo de comprador, sendo os principais feirantes e supermercados, com ampla utilização da embalagem de madeira, caixa K, seguindo com 20,8% em caixas plásticas e 16,7% com caixas de papelão. Os permissionários comercializam o tomate classificado, seja manualmente (58,4%, ou usando máquinas (8,3% ou ambos os procedimentos (33,3%, porém os índices de padronização não são satisfatórios, encontrando-se numa mesma caixa mistura intensa de graus de coloração e tamanhos variados, o que leva a 45,8% do produto a ser reclassificado.The Terminal Markets are the main centers for distribution of vegetables, fruits and flowers from different States of Brazil. The CEAGESP wholesalers can be shippers or growers. The amount of tomato commercialized in these terminal markets is very expressive. It was possible to determine the profile and the main features of the wholesale market at CEAGESP. About 45.8% of the wholesalers had an average commercialization volume of 10,000 tons/year, and 70.8% of them commercialize their own production. Cultivars Carmen and Débora were the leaders on the market. The results

    Full Text Available Tomato plants are susceptible to bacterial wilting, which causes production losses varying from 10 to 100 %. A method for controlling this disease is the use of grafting on resistant rootstocks. This work had the objective of evaluating tomato genotypes for the resistance to Ralstonia solanacearum and the grafting technique as an alternative for the bacterial wilt control in the region of Recôncavo Baiano, Brazil. To evaluate the resistance to R. solanacearum, four local genotypes, collected in different regions of Bahia, the cv. Santa Clara as a susceptible treatment, and the Hawaii 7996 (H7996, as a resistant treatment were studied. For the evaluation of grafting method for control of bacterial wilt, the H7996 was used as rootstock, and the cvs. Santa Clara, Santa Cruz Kada, and Débora Plus were used as the scion plants. Both experiments were evaluated in an area infested with R. solanacearum, for a period of 65 days for the selection of the rootstocks and 45 days for the evaluation of the grafting method. Only the H7996 can be recommended as a R. solanacearum resistant rootstock. The other genotypes showed susceptibility to the pathogen. The grafting on the H7996 did not show incompatibility with the scion tomato cultivars tested and reached 100 % control of the bacterial wilt disease, for all treatments, suggesting that this method can be used as an alternative for the bacterial wilt control, allowing the production of susceptible tomato cultivars in areas infested with R. solanacearum A suscetibilidade do tomateiro à murcha bacteriana (Ralstonia solanacearum causa perdas que vão de 10 a 100 % na produção e uma das alternativas de controle que vem sendo utilizada é a enxertia com porta-enxerto resistente. Este trabalho teve o objetivo avaliar genótipos de tomateiro quanto à resistência a R. solanacearum e a enxertia como alternativa para o controle da murcha bacteriana do tomateiro na região do Recôncavo Baiano.

    Full Text Available Dietas enterais com alimentos convencionais são usadas para obter individualização e menor custo. No entanto, para melhorar o teor de fibras alimentares, o valor nutritivo e a confiabilidade, mais estudos são necessários. A proposta desse estudo foi estudar fontes de fibra alimentar de abóbora, agrião, canela em pó, couve-flor, inhame e tomate, para uso em nutrição enteral ou suplemento nutricional oral. Esses alimentos foram escolhidos por conter fibras alimentares e outros elementos considerados funcionais (isotiocianatos, indóis, licopeno, carotenoides, clorofila. Foram formuladas preparações com os alimentos em solução de água e adicionadas a uma formulação enteral domiciliar. Foram determinadas fibras solúvel e insolúvel, a composição centesimal dos alimentos e a atividade de água das formulações. Os alimentos foram acrescentados à formulação enteral domiciliar em quantidades de 100 g/2000 kcal/2 L e à água 150 g/2000kcal/2 L. Essas quantidades equivalem a duas porções diárias de cada alimento. A maior quantidade de fibra alimentar (base úmida foi de canela (50,11%, sendo o teor dos outros alimentos: abóbora 1,76%; agrião 0,85%; couve-flor 1,51%; inhame 1,56%; e tomate 1,00%. Os valores de atividades de água ficaram entre 0,988 e 0,999, indicando que as dietas são suscetíveis à contaminação microbiana, sendo mais seguro consumir essas dietas imediatamente após o preparo.Enteral diets containing conventional foods are used to reduce costs and obtain individualization. However, more studies are required to improve their dietary fibre content, the nutritive value, and reliability. This study proposed to study the dietary fibres of different vegetables and spices such as pumpkin, watercress, powdered cinnamon, cauliflower, yam, and tomato for use in enteral nutrition or in oral nutritional supplements. These foods were chosen since they contain dietary fibres and other elements considered to be

Primeiramente, estudou-se a eficácia, com auxílio de esferas de borracha, variando-se as cerdas (náilon, sisal, PET e fibra de coco e a rotação (40, 80, 120 e 160rpm das escovas. Depois, com os melhores resultados, foram avaliadas a eficácia da limpeza em tomates e a qualidade pós-colheita dos frutos mensurada pela perda de massa (%, atividade respiratória (CO2 e evolução da concentração de etileno. No primeiro ensaio, as cerdas de náilon, sisal e fibra de coco combinadas com as altas rotações tornaram a limpeza mais eficaz. A cerda PET e a rotação de 40rpm foram ineficientes, apresentando um índice de limpeza (IL inferior a 50%. Para os tomates, o tratamento com náilon a 120rpm foi o mais eficaz na limpeza (IL=91%; todavia, o tratamento com náilon 160rpm apresentou um IL inferior (88%, pois, devido à alta velocidade, os frutos pulavam e não eram envoltos pelas cerdas. Menores IL foram obtidos com fibra de coco a 80 e 120rpm, mas não estatisticamente diferentes. De modo geral, frutos limpos com náilon e sisal a 120rpm apresentaram as maiores alterações na qualidade pós-colheita quando comparados aos frutos limpos nessas mesmas cerdas a 160rpm. Maior flexibilidade das cerdas proporciona maior contato fruto/cerdas, com melhoria na eficiência de limpeza, o que pode provocar alterações na qualidade pós-colheita do fruto, porém não significativas.This research evaluated the cleaning process of fresh market tomatoes Débora in relation to the efficiency cleaning and fruit quality. First, the efficiency cleaning was carried, with rubber spheres, changing the types of bristles (nylon, sisal fiber, PET and coconut fiber as well as the rotation (40, 80, 120 and 160rpm of rotary brushes. Afterwards, with the best results, the studies were carried out with fresh market tomatoes to evaluate cleaning efficiency

    Full Text Available It is an important period as a nearly total breaking with the way the cartoon story is understood happens; this kind of publications will not be devoted any more to the leisure and the education of the children and the young readers. The echos of the authored comic slowly came to Spain, there are some shy national authors along with works published in France, Argentina and Italy which are translated. As it is considered as a narrative expression form and grapically complex, it also stimulates the research on this media through different publications and exhibitions or even through semiological studies made at the university. In the late franquismo some magazines, fascicles and books, are published and show that this media had become “adult”. In one hand there are some experiments done related to genres like fantasy, adventures or horror and in the other hand, the underground comic appears as a countercultural autoctonous experience. Magazines such as Totem, Blue Jeans or Bumerang fixed from 1977 the guidelines that marked the following revolution of the Spanish industry. The very first disembarkation, compact and real, of the comic for adults, happens in 1978 with the publishing of a comic called 1984, then some new magazines such as El Víbora, Cimoc or Cairo got published too. The evolution of the comic devoted to children and young people is studied too. Considered in a certain way as an industrial process, this ended in 1986 with the closing of the Bruguera Publishing House.

    In a Volkswagen BORA a power train has been realized, which includes a fuel cell system consisting of 6 stacks of 8 kW electrical power output each, an electrical storage device made of 282 supercap cells storing 360 Wh of electrical energy, a DC/DC converter and an electric motor which delivers up to 75 kW. The power distribution between supercaps and fuel cell is managed by an energy management device, which optimizes the distribution taking the actual operation points into account. The fuel cell system operates in a wide range with an efficiency higher than 40%. The power train has been integrated in a five seat car. This car named HY.POWER{sup R}, realized as technology platform, drove over the Simplon pass (elevation 2000 m over sea level) on 16 January 2002. This test drive proved the maturity of this concept to drive using this technology on public roads and that also severe operating conditions can be handled successfully. The key aspects of that concepts are the new manufacturing process of the bipolar plates for the fuel cells, the system configuration of the fuel cell system and the enhanced energy density of the supercap cells. The combination of a fuel cell system and of a supercap storage device, together with the integration of the DC/DC converter lead to a new power train concept. The consumption in the NEDC is equal to the energy of 5-6 l gasoline, which is quite impressive if it is remembered that the car has an empty mass of nearly 2000 kg. The HY.POWER{sup R} has been used heavily for the communication of the new technology to the public. The first event was the test drive across the Simplon pass. The main other events was the international auto motor show in Geneva in March 2002 and the presentation of the vehicle at the Earth Summit in Johannesburg in September 2002. (author)

    Over the past few decades the horizontal resolution of regional climate models (RCMs) has steadily increased, leading to a better representation of small-scale topographic features and more details in simulating dynamical aspects, especially in coastal regions and over complex terrain. Due to its complex terrain, the broader Adriatic region represents a major challenge to state-of-the-art RCMs in simulating local wind systems realistically. The objective of this study is to identify the added value in near-surface wind due to the refined grid spacing of RCMs. For this purpose, we use a multi-model ensemble composed of CORDEX regional climate simulations at 0.11° and 0.44° grid spacing, forced by the ERA-Interim reanalysis, a COSMO convection-parameterizing simulation at 0.11° and a COSMO convection-resolving simulation at 0.02° grid spacing. Surface station observations from this region and satellite QuikSCAT data over the Adriatic Sea have been compared against daily output obtained from the available simulations. Both day-to-day wind and its frequency distribution are examined. The results indicate that the 0.44° RCMs rarely outperform ERA-Interim reanalysis, while the performance of the high-resolution simulations surpasses that of ERA-Interim. We also disclose that refining the grid spacing to a few km is needed to properly capture the small-scale wind systems. Finally, we show that the simulations frequently yield the accurate angle of local wind regimes, such as for the Bora flow, but overestimate the associated wind magnitude. Finally, spectral analysis shows good agreement between measurements and simulations, indicating the correct temporal variability of the wind speed.

    The paper investigates the wintertime dynamics of the coastal northeastern Adriatic Sea and is based on numerical modelling and in situ data collected through field campaigns executed during the winter and spring of 2015. The data were collected with a variety of instruments and platforms (acoustic Doppler current profilers, conductivity-temperature-depth probes, glider, profiling float) and are accompanied by the atmosphere-ocean ALADIN/ROMS modelling system. The research focused on the dense-water formation (DWF), thermal changes, circulation, and water exchange between the coastal and open Adriatic. According to both observations and modelling results, dense waters are formed in the northeastern coastal Adriatic during cold bora outbreaks. However, the dense water formed in this coastal region has lower densities than the dense water formed in the open Adriatic due to lower salinities. Since the coastal area is deeper than the open Adriatic, the observations indicate (i) balanced inward-outward exchange at the deep connecting channels of denser waters coming from the open Adriatic DWF site and less-dense waters coming from the coastal region and (ii) outward flow of less-dense waters dominating in the intermediate and surface layers. The latter phenomenon was confirmed by the model, even if it significantly underestimates the currents and transports in the connecting channels. The median residence time of the coastal area is estimated to be approximately 20 days, indicating that the coastal area may be renewed relatively quickly by the open Adriatic waters. The data that were obtained represent a comprehensive marine dataset that can be used to calibrate atmospheric and oceanic numerical models and point to several interesting phenomena to be investigated in the future.

    The study presents seasonal variability of currents in the southern part of the Gulf of Trieste. A time series analysis of currents and wind stress for the period 2003-2006, which were measured by the coastal oceanographic buoy, was conducted. A comparison between these data and results obtained from a numerical model of circulation in the Gulf was performed to validate model results. Three different approaches were applied to the wind data to determine the wind stress. Similarities were found between Kondo and Smith approaches while the method of Vera shows differences which were particularly noticeable for lower (= 1 m/s) and higher wind speeds (= 15 m/s). Mean currents in the surface layer are generally outflow currents from the Gulf due to wind forcing (bora). However in all other depth layers inflow currents are dominant. With the principal component analysis (Pca) major and minor axes were determined for all seasons. The major axis of maximum variance in years between 2003 and 2006 is prevailing in Ne-Sw direction, which is parallel to the coastline. Comparison of observation and model results is showing that currents are similar (in direction) for the surface and bottom layers but are significantly different for the middle layer (5-13 m). At a depth between 14-21 m velocities are comparable in direction as well as in magnitude even though model values are higher. Higher values of modelled currents at the surface and near the bottom are explained by higher values of wind stress that were used in the model as driving input with respect to the stress calculated from the measured winds. Larger values of modelled currents near the bottom are related to the larger inflow that needs to compensate for the larger modelled outflow at the surface. However, inspection of the vertical structure of temperature, salinity and density shows that the model is reproducing a weaker density gradient which enables the penetration of the outflow surface currents to larger depths.

The experimental arrangement was constructed using oil type (isopropyl myristate or castor oil, phospholipid type (distearoylphosphatidylcholine [DSPC] or dioleylphosphaditylcholine [DOPC], and ionic cosurfactant type (oleic acid or oleylamine as independent variables. The analysis of variance showed effect of third order for particle size, polydispersity index, and skin retention of genistein. Nanoemulsions composed of isopropyl myristate/DOPC/oleylamine showed the smallest diameter and highest genistein amount in porcine ear skin whereas the formulation composed of isopropyl myristate/DSPC/oleylamine exhibited the lowest polydispersity index. Thus, these two formulations were selected for further studies. The formulations presented positive ζ potential values (>25 mV and genistein content close to 100% (at 1 mg/mL. The incorporation of genistein in nanoemulsions significantly increased the retention of this isoflavone in epidermis and dermis, especially when the formulation composed by isopropyl myristate/DOPC/oleylamine was used. These results were supported by confocal images. Such formulations exhibited antiherpetic activity in vitro against herpes simplex virus 1 (strain KOS and herpes simplex virus 22 (strain 333.

    The group of fluorophores on boron dipyrrin platform (4,4- difluoro-4-bora3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene, also known as BODIPY) has attracted much attention in the field of molecular sensorics, including sensing of biomolecules and bioprocesses. Structural diversity of existing BODIPY with ample opportunities of directed modification of compounds makes this class of fluorophores attractive for medical and biological purposes. The recent progress in the design and functionalization of BODIPY allows using them for modification of drug micro- and nanocarriers in order to improve their therapeutic effect in cancer treatment. At the same time, integration of BODIPY into drug carriers provides the possibility of in vitro and in vivo real time imaging of used drug carriers. The high fluorescent intensity and low toxicity of BODIPY granted for conjugation with different biomolecules. The present review focuses on the recent advances for application of individual BODIPY in medical diagnostics, antimicrobial activity, as well as establishing the role of BODIPY in labeling of biomolecules (e.g. proteins, hormones and DNA). Also the review highlights the potential of BODIPY in functionalization of drug micro- and nanocarriers in order to achieve better therapeutic efficiency compared with non-modified materials. The advantages derived from the use of BODIPY for preparation and modification of drug carriers are critically evaluated and potential for future challenges, especially concerning the design of innovative multi-functional BODIPY-based nanocarriers, is discussed in detail using representative examples from literature. Our objective was to show that BODIPY are powerful tools for bioimaging, labeling of biomolecules and construction of new multifunctional drug carriers.

    We report principles for a continuous flow process that can separate solutes based on a driving force for selective transport that is generated by a lateral concentration gradient of a redox-active surfactant across a microfluidic channel. Microfluidic channels fabricated with gold electrodes lining each vertical wall were used to electrochemically generate concentration gradients of the redox-active surfactant 11-ferrocenylundecyl-trimethylammonium bromide (FTMA) in a direction perpendicular to the flow. The interactions of three solutes (a hydrophobic dye, 1-phenylazo-2-naphthylamine (yellow AB), an amphiphilic molecule, 2-(4,4-difluoro-5,7-dimethyl-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene-3-pentanoyl)-1-hexadecanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (BODIPY C(5)-HPC), and an organic salt, 1-methylpyridinium-3-sulfonate (MPS)) with the lateral gradients in surfactant/micelle concentration were shown to drive the formation of solute-specific concentration gradients. Two distinct physical mechanisms were identified to lead to the solute concentration gradients: solubilization of solutes by micelles and differential adsorption of the solutes onto the walls of the microchannels in the presence of the surfactant concentration gradient. These two mechanisms were used to demonstrate delipidation of a mixture of BODIPY C(5)-HPC (lipid) and MPS and purification of BODIPY C(5)-HPC from a mixture of BODIPY C(5)-HPC and yellow AB. Overall, the results of this study demonstrate that lateral concentration gradients of redox-active surfactants formed within microfluidic channels can be used to transport solutes across the microfluidic channels in a solute-dependent manner. The approach employs electrical potentials (solutions having high ionic strength (>0.1M), and offers the basis of continuous processes for the purification or separation of solutes in microscale systems. © 2011 American Chemical Society

    For the study of CO{sub 2} absorption and fixation in the marine ecosystem, studies of coral reefs by RITE (Research Institute of Innovative Technology for the Earth) were subjected to discussion at the above-named workshops. It is after the elapse of a long geological time on the earth that CO2 in the atmosphere has arrived at the current level of concentration thanks to fixation and calcification by living organisms and to dissolution into the seawater. In the formation of CaCO{sub 3} that constitutes the coral skeleton, 1 mol Ca combines with 2 mol bicarbonates for the production of 1 mol CaCO{sub 3} and 1 mol CO{sub 2}. The reaction may suggests a consequential increase of CO2 in the atmosphere but such CO{sub 2} is in reality consumed by being converted into organic substances in a photosynthetic process performed by symbiotic algae. Calculation was made for the whole of Bora Bay, Miyakojima Island, and the result was that 700kg-C/day comes to be stored in the form of organic matters in the community of coral reef organisms. In a coral reef, even when it emits CO2 into the atmosphere, there is organic matter production which exceeds the lost CO{sub 2}. Coral reefs fix carbon out of the seawater at the rate of 0.42Gt-C/year, which is the aggregate of 0.3Gt organic matters and 0.12Gt CaCO{sub 3}. (NEDO)

    There is an urgent need to assess the accuracy/feasibility of using dried blood spots (DBS) for monitoring of HIV-1 viral load in resource-limited settings. A total of 892 DBS from HIV-1-positive pregnant women and their neonates enrolled in the Kesho Bora prevention of mother-to-child transmission trial conducted in Durban (South Africa) and Bobo-Dioulasso (Burkina Faso) between May 2005 and July 2008 were tested for HIV-1 RNA. The combination Nuclisens extraction method (BioMérieux)/Generic HIV Viral Load assay (Biocentric) was performed using one DBS (in Durban) versus 2 DBS (in Bobo-Dioulasso) on 2 distinct open real-time polymerase chain reaction instruments. DBS HIV-1 RNA results were compared with plasma HIV-1 RNA and HIV serology results used as the gold standards. The limits of detection of assays on DBS were 3100 and 1550 copies per milliliter in Durban and Bobo-Dioulasso, respectively. DBS HIV-1 RNA values correlated significantly with plasma levels (n = 327; R = 0.7351) and were uniformly distributed according to duration of DBS storage at -20°C (median duration, 280 days). For early infant diagnosis, the sensitivity and specificity were 100% (95% confidence interval: 97.2 to 100.0 and 96.5 to 100.0, respectively). HIV-1 viral load kinetics in DNase-pretreated DBS were similar to those obtained in plasma specimens among 13 patients receiving antiretroviral treatment. HIV-1 RNA findings from serial infant DBS collected prospectively (n = 164) showed 100% concordance with HIV serology at 18 months of life. Our findings strongly advocate the implementation of DBS HIV-1 RNA testing in remote areas from low-income and middle-income countries.

    DNA methylation is dynamically reprogrammed during early embryonic development in mammals. It can be explained partially by the discovery of 5-(hydroxymethyl)cytosine (5-hmC), 5-formylcytosine (5-fC), and 5-carboxylcytosine (5-caC), which are identified as key players involved in both active and passive demethylation pathways. As one of the ten-eleven translocation oxidation products, 5-hmC was found relatively abundant in neuron cells and embryonic stem cells. Herein we report a new method for 5-hmC quantification in genomic DNA based on CCP-FRET (cationic conjugated polymers act as the energy donor and induce fluorescence resonance energy transfer) assay combined with KRuO4 oxidation. 5-hmC in genomic DNA can be selectively transformed into 5-fC by the oxidation of KRuO4 and then labeled with hydroxylamine-BODIPY (BODIPY = 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene) fluorophore through the reaction between 5-fC and hydroxylamine-BODIPY. After the fluorescently labeled DNA was captured by CCP through electrostatic interactions, a significant FRET between CCP and hydroxylamine-BODIPY fluorophore was observed. This CCP-FRET-based assay benefits from light-harvesting, large Stokes shift, and optical signal amplification properties of the CCP. Furthermore, this CCP-FRET-based assay was quite successfully demonstrated for the 5-hmC quantification in three types of cells (mESc, HeLa, HEK 293T), providing a much more convenient choice for 5-hmC quantification in genomic DNA.

Specific T cells are activated by antigen-presenting cells, mainly dendritic cells (DCs. It is already known that the regulation of tryptophan pathway in DC can be a mechanism of immunomodulation. The enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO is present in many cells, including DC, and participates in the metabolism of the amino acid tryptophan. Recent studies suggest the involvement of IDO in the modulation of immune response, which became more evident after the in vitro demonstration of IDO production by DC and of the ability of these cells to inhibit lymphocyte function through the control of tryptophan metabolism. Current studies on immunotherapies describe the use of DC and IDO to control the progression of the immune response that triggers DM1. The initial results obtained are promising and indicate the possibility of developing therapies for the treatment or prevention of the DM1. Clinical trials using these cells in DM1 patients represent an interesting alternative treatment. However, clinical trials are still in the initial phase and a robust group of assays is necessary.

    Cu(I) catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reactivity was successfully employed to synthesize three donor-acceptor energy transfer (EnT) arrays that contain one (Dyad), three (Tetrad) and four (Pentad) 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene (BODIPY) donors connected to a Zn-tetraphenylporphyrin acceptor via 1,2,3-triazole linkages. The photophysical properties of the three arrays, along with individual donor and acceptor chromophores, were investigated by UV-vis absorption and emission spectroscopy, fluorescence lifetimes, and density functional theory (DFT) electronic structure modeling. Comparison of the UV-vis absorption spectra and frontier molecular orbitals from DFT calculations of the three arrays with ZnTPP, ZnTTrzlP, and Trzl-BODIPY shows that the electronic structure of the chromophores is essentially unperturbed by the 1,2,3-triazole linkage. Time-dependent DFT (TDDFT) calculations on the Dyad reproduce the absorption spectra in THF and show no evidence of excited state mixing of the donor and acceptor. The BODIPY singlet excited state emission is significantly quenched in all three arrays, consistent with EnT to the porphyrin core, with efficiencies of 95.8, 97.5, and 97.2% for the Dyad, Tetrad, and Pentad, respectively. Fluorescence excitation spectra of the three arrays, measured at the porphyrin emission, mirror the absorption profile of both the porphyrin and BODIPY chromophores and are consistent with the Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) mechanism. Applying Förster theory to the spectroscopic data of the chromophores gives EnT efficiency estimates that are in close agreement with experimental values, suggesting that the through-space mechanism plays a dominant role in the three arrays.

Treatment 1 consisted of free growth plants; treatment 2 (standard of disprouted plants; treatment 3, young curved fruits (<5 cm removed; treatments 4, 5 and 6, plants removing 25%, 50% and 75% of their leaves, respectively. There were no differences in plant height, but plants of treatments 5 and 6 had greater number of nodes per plant, although they were smaller and less vigorous, presenting a smaller number of sproutings. Despite having plants with higher total yield, in treatment 1, most of them were curved and the harvest was more difficult. Plants of treatment 3 had a greater commercial yield, because all the young curved fruits were removed and the plants compensated their yield, producing other fruits with better quality and plants had better sprouting. The higher the defoliation level the greater was the yield reduction.

    Previous net rates of CO{sub 2} fixation by coral reef ecosystems have been said to be nearly zero due to a balance between CO{sub 2} fixed by organic carbon production and CO{sub 2} released by both organic carbon decomposition and inorganic carbon formation. But this study, conducted in Bora Bay, Miyako Island, Japan showed net rates of about 7 gC m{sup -2} d{sup -1} inside a coral reef and on a coral reef. It was found by experiment that the photosynthetic rate of coral increased with the increase of the flow rate of seawater. The authors tried to calculate net primary production (= net rates of CO{sub 2} fixation) outside a coral reef with flow rate. A flow rate on the coral reef of the open seaside is much higher than that in a lagoon. As an example, the CO{sub 2} fixation rates at the flow rates of 6 and 30 cm/s are compared. When it is assumed that the length of the whole coral reef facing the ocean is 50,000 km and its width is 100 m, and the flow rate is 30cm/s, the CO{sub 2} fixation rate is calculated to be 6.3 x 10{sup 6} t-C/y (3.5g-C/m{sup 2}d). This value is 2.2 times higher than that at the flow rate of 6 cm/s. This fixation rate is only by the coral itself. It means that the CO{sub 2} fixation rate by coral reef ecosystems can be much higher and the magnitude for worldwide ecosystems can be in the order of 10{sup 6}-10{sup 7} t-C/y. 14 refs., 5 tabs.

    This paper describes a procedure to perform spatio-temporal analysis of river plume dispersion in prodelta areas by multi-temporal Landsat-8-derived products for identifying zones sensitive to water discharge and for providing geostatistical patterns of turbidity linked to different meteo-marine forcings. In particular, we characterized the temporal and spatial variability of turbidity and sea surface temperature (SST) in the Po River prodelta (Northern Adriatic Sea, Italy) during the period 2013-2016. To perform this analysis, a two-pronged processing methodology was implemented and the resulting outputs were analysed through a series of statistical tools. A pixel-based spatial correlation analysis was carried out by comparing temporal curves of turbidity and SST hypercubes with in situ time series of wind speed and water discharge, providing correlation coefficient maps. A geostatistical analysis was performed to determine the spatial dependency of the turbidity datasets per each satellite image, providing maps of correlation and variograms. The results show a linear correlation between water discharge and turbidity variations in the points more affected by the buoyant plumes and along the southern coast of Po River delta. Better inverse correlation was found between turbidity and SST during floods rather than other periods. The correlation maps of wind speed with turbidity show different spatial patterns depending on local or basin-scale wind effects. Variogram maps identify different spatial anisotropy structures of turbidity in response to ambient conditions (i.e. strong Bora or Scirocco winds, floods). Since the implemented processing methodology is based on open source software and free satellite data, it represents a promising tool for the monitoring of maritime ecosystems and to address water quality analyses and the investigations of sediment dynamics in estuarine and coastal waters.

    Coastal marine regions such as the Gulf of Trieste GOT in the Northern Adriatic Sea serve as the link between carbon cycling on land and the ocean interior and potentially contribute large uncertainties in the estimate of anthropogenic CO2 uptake. This system may be either a sink or a source for atmospheric CO2. Understanding the sources and sinks as a result of biological and physical controls for air-sea carbon dioxide fluxes in coastal waters may substantially alter the current view of the global carbon budget for unique terrestrial and ocean regions such as the GOT. GOT is a semi-enclosed Mediterranean basin situated in the northern part of Adriatic Sea. It is one of the most productive regions in the Mediterranean and is affected by extreme fresh river input, phytoplankton blooms, and large changes of air-sea exchange during Bora high wind events. The unique combination of these environmental processes and relatively small size of the area makes the region an excellent study site for investigations of air-sea interaction, and changes in biology and carbon chemistry. However, there is a dearth of current data or information from the region. Here we present the first measurements of air and water CO2 flux in the GOT. The aqueous CO2 was measured at the Coastal Oceanographic buoy Piran, Slovenia using the SAMI CO2 sensor during spring and late summer and fall 2007. CO2 measurements were combined with hydrological and biological observations to evaluate the processes that control carbon cycling in the region.

A control group was prepared with a flowable composite at room temperature. DC was determined using a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, KHN was measured with a Knoop indenter, P was evaluated by percentage reduction of hardness after 24 h of ethanol storage, and DP was obtained by bottom/top ratio. Data were statistically analyzed by analysis of variance and Tukey’s test (α = 0.05.Results: Regardless of light-curing, the highest preheating temperature increased DC compared to room temperature on bottom surface. LED showed a higher DC compared to QTH. Overall, DC was higher on top surface than bottom. KHN, P, and DP were not affected by curing mode and temperature, and flowable composite showed similar KHN, and lower DC and P, compared to bulk fill.Conclusion: Composite preheating increased the polymerization degree of 4-mm-increment bulk fill, but it led to a higher plasticization compared to the conventional flowable composite evaluated.

High-frequency oscillations, with frequencies are usual for oscillatory thermocapillary convection, are modulated by low-frequency oscillation. The latter has frequency is less than the first one by a factor of 10 and more and amplitude can be comparable to amplitude of high-frequency oscillations. Mathematical model of fluid rotating by the action of magnetic field gives an instrument for study of different hydrodynamic problems.

    Full Text Available A maioria dos estudos relacionados à agregação do solo associa o efeito de manejos ou tipos de uso da terra ao teor de matéria orgânica. No entanto, a avaliação de microrganismos e seus processos, feita diretamente em estruturas indeformadas do solo, permite maior entendimento do real efeito de diferentes tipos de manejos exercidos sobre esse. Assim, o objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar modificações impostas por diferentes tipos de uso da terra (pastagem, mata de eucalipto, mata com araucária, plantio convencional com cenoura e plantio convencional com abóbora em atributos químicos (pH, Ca, Mg, Al, P, K, S e matéria orgânica e físicos (diâmetro médio geométrico - DMG, diâmetro médio ponderado - DMP, densidade do solo e densidade de partículas e na qualidade microbiana (atividade e carbono microbianos, micélio extrarradicular total de fungos micorrízicos arbusculares e quociente metabólico - qCO2 de classes de tamanho de agregados (I- 4,00 a 2,36 mm; II- 2,36 a 1,18 mm; III- 1,18 a 0,60 mm; IV- 0,60 a 0,30 mm; e V- 0,30 a 0,15 mm de um Latossolo Vermelho-Amarelo, no sul de Minas Gerais. Os resultados evidenciaram que os tipos de uso da terra interferem na formação, no tamanho e na qualidade microbiana dos agregados. Em agregados menores (classes IV e V, há redução de micélio extrarradicular de fungos e biomassa microbiana e aumento da atividade e do quociente metabólico, independentemente do tipo de uso da terra. A qualidade microbiana de agregados maiores do solo sob mata de araucária, com tamanho entre 0,60 e 4,00 mm (I, II e III, é semelhante a todas as classes de tamanho de agregados do solo sob mata de eucalipto, enquanto a de agregados menores de 0,60 mm (IV e V é semelhante a todas de tamanho de agregados da pastagem. Agregados do cultivo convencional, diferentemente dos demais tipos de uso da terra, apresentam baixa qualidade microbiana e relação com a fertilidade do solo.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi detectar uma possível especificidade alimentar de duas espécies crípticas de cochonilhas do gênero Planococcus, refletida em seu desenvolvimento em frutos de cacaueiro, cafeeiro e citros. A cochonilha Planococcus minor (Maskell, obtida de frutos de cacau (Theobroma cacao L. cv. Comum, e Planococcus citri (Risso, de lavoura de café (Coffea arabica L. cv. Mundo Novo e de mudas de citros (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck cv. Bahia, foram criadas em abóboras (Cucurbita maxima L., em laboratório. Rosetas com frutos de café foram mantidas sobre uma lâmina de 5 mm de ágar-água em placas de Petri, vedadas com filme plástico de polietileno. Em frutos de citros e cacau foram utilizadas gaiolas plásticas cilíndricas (1,5 cm x 3,0 cm, vedadas com voile na parte superior, as quais foram fixadas nos frutos por meio de um elástico. Os bioensaios foram conduzidos em câmaras climatizadas a 25 ± 1ºC, 70 ± 10% UR e 12 horas de fotofase, utilizando-se de 30 repetições. Para as cochonilhas provenientes de cafeeiro, o substrato café proporcionou o maior período ninfal de fêmeas (20,8 dias e maior longevidade (31,7 dias. Para fêmeas oriundas de cacau, o substrato cacau promoveu o menor período ninfal (21,1 dias e maior longevidade (25,0 dias. Para aquelas oriundas de citros, o substrato cacau promoveu o menor período ninfal (18,4 dias, e o substrato citros, a maior longevidade (32,0 dias. As maiores porcentagens de mortalidade (50% foram obtidas das ninfas oriundas de frutos de cacau e citros, criadas em café e cacau, e as menores foram das ninfas oriundas de frutos de café, independentemente do substrato em que foram criadas. A cochonilha P. minor mostra uma associação mais estreita com o cacau e, eventualmente, café, em relação ao citros, o que explicaria sua maior ocorrência em cacau. No entanto, P. citri não evidencia nenhuma especificidade para os três substratos testados.

  17. Measurements of Sediment Transport in the Western Adriatic Sea

    Instrumented bottom tripods were deployed at two depths (10 and 20 m) off the mouth of the Chienti River in the western Adriatic Sea from November 2002 to May 2003 as part of the EuroSTRATAFORM Po and Apennine Sediment Transport and Accumulation (PASTA) Experiment. Waves, currents, and proxies for suspended-sediment concentrations were measured with upward-looking acoustic Doppler current meters, downward looking pulse-coherent acoustic Doppler profilers, single-point acoustic Doppler velocimeters, and acoustic and optical backscatter sensors. Flow was dominated by the western Adriatic coastal current (WACC) during the experiment. Mean southward alongshore velocity 2 m below the surface was 0.10 m/s at the 10-m site and 0.23 m/s at the 20-m site, and flow was modulated by tides, winds, and fluctuating riverflow. The largest waves (3 m significant height) were generated by winds from the southeast during a Sirocco event in late November that generated one of the few episodes of sustained northward flow and sediment transport. Most of the time, however, sediment resuspension and transport was dominated by Bora events, when downwelling-favorable winds from the northeast generated waves that resuspended sediment and simultaneously enhanced southward flow in the WACC. Mean flow near the bottom was slightly offshore at the 20-m site (0.01 m/s at 3 m above the bottom), but there was no significant correlation between downwelling and wave-induced resuspension, and cross-shelf sediment fluxes were small. The combination of persistent southward flow with low rates of cross-shelf leakage makes the WACC an efficient conduit for sediment past the Chienti region. If these observations are representative of typical winter conditions along the entire western Adriatic, they may help explain the enigmatic development of Holocene shelf-edge clinoforms that have formed hundreds of kilometers south of the Po River, which provides most of the sediment to the Adriatic Sea.

In fact the influence of sea level rise and changes in the meteorological conditions due to climate change in strategic areas like the coastal zone is at the base of the well known mitigation and risk assessment plans. The investigation of the coastal zone hydrodynamics, from a modeling point of view, has been the field for the connection between hydraulic models and ocean models and, in terms of process studies, finite element models have demonstrated their suitability in the reproduction of complex coastal morphology and in the capability to reproduce different spatial scale hydrodynamic processes. In this work the connection between two different model families, the climate models and the hydrodynamic models usually implemented for process studies, is tested. Together, they can be the most suitable tool for the investigation of climate change on coastal systems. A finite element model, SHYFEM (Shallow water Hydrodynamic Finite Element Model), is implemented on the Adriatic Sea, to investigate the effect of wind forcing datasets produced by different downscaling from global climate models in terms of surge and its coastal effects. The wind datasets are produced by the regional climate model COSMO-CLM (CIRA), and by EBU-POM model (Belgrade University), both downscaling from ECHAM4. As a first step the downscaled wind datasets, that have different spatial resolutions, has been analyzed for the period 1960-1990 to compare what is their capability to reproduce the measured wind statistics in the coastal zone in front of the Venice Lagoon. The particularity of the Adriatic Sea meteo climate is connected with the influence of the orography in the strengthening of winds like Bora, from North-East. The increase in spatial resolution permits the more resolved wind dataset to better reproduce meteorology and to provide a more

    Mesoproterozoic volcanosedimentary units and tectonic events occurring in the Río de la Plata Craton (RPC) are reviewed. A belt consisting of volcanosedimentary successions exhibiting greenschist-facies metamorphism is exposed in the eastern RPC (Nico Pérez Terrane) in Uruguay. The Parque UTE Group consists of basic volcanics and gabbros at the base (1,492 ± 4 Ma, U-Pb on zircon), carbonates in its middle part and interbedded carbonates, shales and acid volcanics (1,429 ± 21 Ma, U-Pb on zircon) at the top. The Mina Verdún Group is made up of rhyolites and acid pyroclastics at its base and top, and Conophyton-bearing limestones and massive dolostones in the middle. A U-Pb LA-ICP MS zircon age of 1,433 ± 6 Ma is reported here for lapilli-tuffs at the base of the Mina Verdún Group (Cerro de las Víboras Formation). This age shows that the Mina Verdún Group immediately postdates the Parque UTE Group, a fact supported by carbon isotope chemostratigraphy. Both units were deformed and metamorphosed between 1.25 and 1.20 Ga, as shown by K-Ar and Ar-Ar ages. This tectonic event affected most of the RPC and led to the accretion of the Nico Pérez Terrane to the remainder of the RPC along the Sarandí del Yí megashear. We report a U-Pb LA-ICP MS zircon age (upper intercept) of 3,096 ± 45 Ma for metatonalites of the La China Complex (Nico Pérez Terrane), which yield a lower intercept age of 1,252 Ma. A proto-Andean, Mesoproterozoic belt is envisaged to account for abundant Mesoproterozoic detrital zircon ages occurring in Ediacaran sandstones of the RPC. If the RPC is fringed at both sides by Mesoproterozoic, Grenville-aged belts it is likely that it occupied a rather central position in Rodinia. A possible location between Laurentia and the Kalahari Craton, and to the south of Amazonia, is suggested.

  20. Alimentação alternativa: análise crítica de uma proposta de intervenção nutricional Alternative foods: a critical analysis of a proposal for nutritional intervention

    Full Text Available O Instituto Nacional de Alimentação e Nutrição (Inan está propondo o uso, em nível nacional, de fórmula de alimentação alternativa, denominada "Multimistura", à base de farelos de arroz, e/ou trigo, sementes de gergelim e abóbora, folhas de mandioca, beterraba, cenoura, verduras nativas e pó de casca de ovo, como solução para combater a fome da população carente. Embora o crítico estado nutricional da população-alvo possa fazer qualquer questionamento técnico ou ético parecer por demais filosófico, uma série de considerações nutricionais, toxicológicas e até de viabilidade prática sugerem que a posição adotada pelo Inan deveria ser revista. A solução da multimistura, talvez válida para situações transitórias de extrema pobreza, carece de universalidade para ser utilizada, independentemente de faixa etária, estado nutricional e período de duração da intervenção.The nationwide use of a "Multimixture," a formula based on alternative foods such as rice and/or wheat bran, sesame and squash seeds, cassava, beet and carrot leaves, several indigenous leafy vegetables, and ground egg shells has been proposed by the National Institute of Food and Nutrition (INAN as an official solution to fight hunger among poor Brazilians. The fragile nutritional state of the target population may make technical or ethical questions appear purely academic, yet nutritional, toxicological, and practical feasibility considerations appear to warrant a revision of the INAN proposal. While the Multimixture approach may prove valid as a temporary solution in cases of extreme poverty, it is not universally applicable for the intended use, failing to take into account the age and nutritional status of the subjects or duration of the intervention.

    In this study influence of fresh water discharge on the spatial and temporal variability of thermohaline (TH) conditions is explored for the Bay of Koper (Bay). The Bay is subject to different driving agents: wind stress (bora, sirocco), tidal and seiches effect, buoyancy fluxes, general circulation of the Adriatic Sea and discharge of the Rizana and Badaševica rivers. These rivers have torrential characteristics that are hard to forecast in relation to meteorological events (precipitation). Therefore, during episodic events the spatial and temporal variability of TH properties in the Bay is difficult to determine [1]. Measurements of temperature, salinity and turbidity were conducted monthly on 35 sampling points in the period: June 2011 - December 2012. The data were processed and spatial interpolated with an objective analysis method. Furthermore, empirical orthogonal function analysis (EOF) [2] was applied to investigate spatial and temporal TH variations. Strong horizontal and vertical stratification was observed in the beginning of June 2011 due to high fresh water discharge of the Rizana (31 m3/s) and Badaševica (2 m3/s) rivers. The horizontal gradient (ΔT = 6°C) was noticed near the mouth of the Rizana river. Similar pattern was identified for salinity field on the boundary of the front where the gradient was ΔS = 20 PSU. Vertical temperature gradient was ΔT = 4°C while salinity gradient was ΔS = 18 PSU in the subsurface layer at depth of 3 m. Spatial analysis of the first principal component (86% of the total variance) shows uniform temperature distribution in the surface layer (1m) during the studied period. Furthermore, temporal variability of temperature shows seasonal variation with a minimum in February and maximum in August. This confirms that episodic events have a negligible effect on spatial and temporal variation of temperature in the subsurface layer. Further analysis will include application of EOF on the salinity, density and total

    Full Text Available O meloeiro (Cucumis melo L. é uma frutífera largamente cultivada no Brasil, principalmente no nordeste brasileiro, onde é produzida principalmente para a exportação. Plantas da família do meloeiro, como pepino e abóbora, podem ser severamente afetadas pelo oídio, causado por Podosphaera xanthii.. Este fungo apresenta diversas raças fisiológicas cuja correta identificação é importante para o manejo da doença, já que o uso de variedades resistentes é o método mais eficaz de seu controle. No entanto, a identificação destas raças por meio da prática tradicional de inoculações em uma série diferenciadora de variedades de meloeiro é laboriosa e passível de erros. Devido a isso, um método alternativo seria o uso de marcadores moleculares para determinar de forma rápida a identidade das raças. O objetivo deste estudo foi o de analisar a variabilidade entre isolados de P. xanthii previamente classificados em raças através da técnica de AFLP e do seqüenciamento da região ITS 5.8S do rDNA. A partir dos marcadores AFLP obteve-se um dendrograma no qual não houve separação dos isolados quanto às suas raças, origem geográfica ou hospedeiro de origem. Com esta técnica verificou-se alta variabilidade entre isolados, com similaridade genética máxima de 69% e similaridade mínima de 23%. Ao contrário da informação gerada por AFLP, não foi observada variação na sequência da região ITS 5.8S entre isolados. Desta forma, a análise por AFLP indicou que os isolados tem composição genética heterogênea muito embora este fato não tenha sido evidenciado pelo sequenciamento da região ITS.

O objetivo deste estudo foi estudar a incidência e infestação de vetores de viroses em dois sistemas de manejo de pragas em plantios de tomateiro estaqueado. O experimento foi conduzido em plantio de tomateiro da variedade 'Débora Mix', grupo Santa Clara, com espaçamento de 1,0 x 0,5 m (linhas x plantas, em condução com duas hastes (Tutoramento vertical. Os sistemas avaliados foram: Manejo Ecológico de Pragas (MEP - monitoramento das pragas e tomada de decisão para a aplicação de inseticidas com base no nível de infestação e Convencionalcalendário de aplicações que iniciaram sete dias após o transplantio e seguiram sendo realizadas duas vezes por semana. A maior incidência de B. tabaci ocorreu no sistema MEP, enquanto que a maior incidência de Liriomyza sp. e diferentes espécies de pulgões ocorreu no sistema convencional, mas para F. schultzei não houve diferença na incidência entre os manejos. Houve infestação dos vetores de viroses durante todo o período de condução da cultura e, no geral, considerando todos os insetospraga, a redução no número de aplicações foi de 88,14% no MEP. O sistema de manejo adotado não interfere na incidência e infestação de vetores de viroses na cultura, mas a implantação do sistema MEP viabiliza a utilização criteriosa dos defensivos agrícolas, permitindo redução do número de pulverizações com consequente redução dos custos de produção.

Ispitivanjem faza nanokristalne prevlake WC17Co deponovane termičkim postupkom HVOF i polikristalne prevlake deponovane plazma-sprej postupkom,  ustanovljeno je da u obe prevlake dolazi do, manje ili više, razgradnje polazne faze WC u fazu W2C i W. Ovo razlaganje je izraženije kod plazme zbog viših temperatura. U strukturi polikristalne prevlake deponovane plazmom, pored faze WC uvek su prisutne i faze W2C,W,W3C i mešoviti karbid ή – Co3W3C (Saha, et al., 2010, pp. 592-595.

Helijum kao plemeniti gas ima velike prednosti kao plazma gas u odnosu na druge gasove. Eksperimentalna istraživanja karakteristika mlazeva plazmi pokazala su da izoterme blizu izlaza iz anode imaju manji prečnik za plazmu Ar-He u odnosu na Ar-H2. Dužina izotermi je takođe manja kod plazme Ar-He zbog manje specifične entalpije i  većeg viskoziteta u odnosu na Ar-H2. Gušća plazma, kao što je Ar-He, može znatno da smanji inkorporiranje okolnog vazduha u mlaz plazme.

    Full Text Available Due to the growing number of immigrants in the United States, made up principally of Latinos, Asians and Africans, there has been a growing demand for products that are popular in their countries of origin. In order to meet this demand, there has been a tremendous increase in imports of agricultural products to the United States. Cassava is a good example. Imports of cassava to the US have increased 370% in the last six years. The University of Massachusetts began to evaluate vegetable crops popular among Puerto Ricans and Dominicans in 1996, and in 2002 began to evaluate crops popular among the large and growing Brazilian population in the state and region. This paper summarizes results of research on crops popular with Brazilian immigrants in the US, in addition to the evaluation of the marketing chain and impact of media outlets to promote and sell these crops. Surveys of Brazilian customers in target markets demonstrated that the majority of Brazilian immigrants in the Northeastern United States are from the state of Minas Gerais. Due to this fact, the crops chosen for research in Massachusetts were ones that were popular in this state: jiló, maxixe, taioba, abóbora and okra. In order to successfully introduce these crops into the marketplace it is critical to devote resources to promotion and marketing. In spite of their popularity among Brazilians, these vegetable crops are not normally found in the market so it is necessary to let the community know that they are available and in what locations. The most effective media outlet evaluated in this work to reach Brazilians was the television station Rede Globo International, available in the United States; however, other avenues evaluated to promote this project to Brazilians, such as Brazilian newspapers and radio programs, were also effective and less expensive. The opportunity to export agricultural products to the United States is a growing opportunity for farmers in Brazil. In order to

    Full Text Available A aplicação de quantidades adequadas de água e o uso de técnicas associadas melhoram a produtividade e a qualidade de frutos de tomate, assegurando melhores lucratividades aos empreendimentos agrícolas. O objetivo deste trabalho foi estudar os efeitos da aplicação de lâminas de água e da injeção de dióxido de carbono (CO2 no sistema de irrigação sobre a cultura de tomate, cultivar Débora-Plus. Para isso foi conduzido um experimento em Piracicaba, de março a outubro de 1999 sob duas estufas, utilizando seis lâminas de água (40; 60; 80; 100; 120% e 140% da lâmina requerida pela cultura e dois níveis de dióxido de carbono (C0 = 0 g de CO2.L-1 de água e C1 = 7,73 g.L-1 de CO2 aplicados via água. O delineamento experimental para o efeito das lâminas de irrigação foi o de blocos ao acaso com quatro repetições. Os tratamentos de CO2 foram aplicados em estufas separadas. A irrigação foi realizada utilizando sistema de irrigação por gotejamento, com manejo controlado por tanques evaporimétricos reduzidos e tensiômetros. A aplicação do CO2 foi realizada por intermédio de um cilindro comercial e injetor tipo Venturi, durante o tempo necessário à aplicação da lâmina mínima de água. A aplicação de CO2 via água de irrigação proporcionou aumentos de 8,2%; 13% e 8,5% respectivamente na produtividade, peso de frutos de tamanho pequeno e conteúdo de matéria seca de frutos. Entretanto não foram verificados efeitos significativos sobre o número de frutos e o peso de frutos de tamanho médio. Análises da solução do solo indicaram que o uso do CO2 possivelmente contribui para a melhoria das condições nutricionais do tomateiro. Verificou-se também a viabilidade econômica da aplicação deste gás. As lâminas de irrigação não proporcionaram efeitos significativos sobre a produtividade, o número total, o peso médio e o conteúdo de matéria seca de frutos.

    Las serpientes pertenecen a la clase reptiles, orden escamados y suborden ofidios. Surgieron durante el periodo cretáceo hace aproximadamente 120 millones de años. La evolución de las formas venenosas es un poco más reciente, posiblemente hace unos 30 millones de años. Actualmente se conocen unas 3200 especies de serpientes de las cuales unas 1300 son venenosas, agrupadas en cuatro familias: Colubridae (cazadoras opistoglifas, Elapidae (corales, Hydrophiidae (serpientes marinas y Viperidae (víboras subfamilia Crotalinae (de fosa. La víbora Bothriechis schlegelii, es una serpiente arborícola que se distribuye desde Centroamérica hasta Suramérica (Venezuela, Ecuador y Colombia. En Colombia la especie se encuentra en las 3 cordilleras, en los valles interandinos y en las llanuras del Caribe y del Pacífico hasta los 2.640 metros sobre el nivel del mar. Su talla máxima es de 83 cm y el accidente por ella ocupa el primer lugar en las zonas cafeteras y en el norte de Antioquia. Además a esta especie se le ha demostrado variación en el patrón de coloración en las regiones del Suroeste y norte de Antioquia.

    Variabilidad del Veneno: Los estudios de variabilidad en los venenos de las serpientes han comprendido el análisis con respecto a la zona geográfica, a la ontogenia, al régimen alimenticio y a la época del año, tanto de manera intraespecie como interespecie. Se ha observado que algunas especies aisladas reproductivamente por barreras naturales, presentan variaciones en la composición del veneno. En la especie Daboia russelli se reportó variabilidad geográfica en el veneno, hallazgo importante para el tratamiento, ya que el antiveneno producido con especimenes continentales, no es efectivo para

Al calcular la reactividad, se comprueba que el coeficiente correspondiente a la densidad neta del mercurio en el primer proyecto del MCBR es negativo en algunas regiones, y positivo en otras. Es negativo en las regiones de peso estadistico maximo y en las que los cambios de densidad serian mayores al variar la potencia. Por lo tanto, el coeficiente global de densidad del mercurio es negativo, esto es, el coeficiente de vacios es positivo, lo que constituye una condicion que implica peligro. En la formulacion de dos grupos, se aprecia facilmente que modificaciones es preciso introducir en el diseno para que el coeficiente de cavidad sea negativo. Nuevas investigaciones demostraron que era posible introducir dichas modificaciones, lograndose establecer para el MCBR un diseno cuyo coeficiente de vacios es negativo.

    Full Text Available U radu je analizirana vakuum plazma sprej prevlaka VPS – Cr3C2 - 25(Ni20Cr. Upotrebljen je komercijalni prah oznake Sulzer Metco Woka 7205. Prah je deponovan sa plazma pištoljem F4 na odstojanju substrata od 340 mm. Glavni cilj rada bio je da se na smanjenom pritisku inertnog gasa Ar eliminiše razgradnja primarnog karbida Cr3C2 u karbid Cr23C6 koji bitno umanjuje mikrotvrdoću i mehaničke karakteristike prevlake. Prevlaka je deponovana debljine od 100 do 120 µm na čeličnom substratu. Mikrotvrdoća prevlake ispitana je metodom HV0.3. Vrednosti mikrotvrdoće bile su u rasponu od 1248 do 1342 HV0.3. Čvrstoća spoja prevlake ispitana je metodom na zatezanje. Utvrđeno je da čvrstoća spoja između substrata i prevlake ima vrednost 89 MPa. Mikrostruktura prevlake ispitana je tehnikom svetlosne mikroskopije. Struktura prevlake sastoji se od osnove NiCr legure sa dominantnom primarnom karbidnom fazom Cr3C2. Pored Cr3C2 faze prisutna je i faza Cr7C3. Nagrizanje prevlake urađeno je reagensom 1HNO3: 4HCl: 4H2O koji prvenstveno rastvara Ni da bi se videla raspodela karbidne faze u prevlaci. Nagrizanjem prevlake reagensom utvrđeno je da je u slojevima prevlake u velikom udelu prisutna primarna nerazgrađena karbidna faza Cr3C2 koja prevlaci daje visoke vrednosti mikrotvrdoće. / This paper analyzes vacuum plasma spray VPS - Cr3C2 - 25(Ni20Cr coatings. Commercial powder marked Sulzer Metco Woka 7205 is used. The powder is deposited with a plasma gun F4 at a distance of 340 mm from the substrate. The main objective of the study was to eliminate, at the reduced pressure of inert gas Ar, the degradation of primary Cr3C2 carbide into Cr23C6 carbide which significantly reduces the microhardness and mechanical properties of the coating. The coating is deposited with a thickness of 100 - 120 µm on a steel substrate. The microhardness of the coating was tested by HV0.3. The microhardness values were in the range of 1248 - 1342 HV0.3.

    Complete text of publication follows. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to identify key health hazards of uranium dust from the radioactive battlefields (Balkan, Middle East and Eastern Afghanistan conflicts) to draw lessons for civil protection in the terrorist scenario of radiological dispersion devices (RDD). Gulf War I (GW I) in 1991 resulted in 350 metric tons of depleted uranium (DU) deposited in the environment and 3 to 6 million grams of DU aerosol dust particles released into the atmosphere, by the most conservative estimates. Its possible legacy (Gulf War disease) continues after the military conflicts (Operation Enduring Freedom, OEF, in Afghanistan and Gulf War II in Iraq). The symptoms of the multiorgan incapacitating progressive disease have been as numerous as their names, including incapacitating fatigue, musculoskeletal and joint pains, headaches, neuropsychiatric disorders, affects changes, confusion, visual problems, changes of gait, loss of memory, lympadenopathies, respiratory impairment, impotence, and urinary tract morphological and functional alterations. The disease is still a matter of controversy regarding etiology and pathogenesis of the syndrome commonly named Gulf War disease. It was underestimated and subsequently evolved in its clinical description through recognition of progressive symptomatology. Methods: UMRC's studies of the human contamination with uranium isotopes were conducted with the exposed subjects of Jalalabad, Spin Gar, Tora Bora, and Kabul areas in Afghanistan after OEF as well as Samawah, Baghdad and Basrah in Iraq after GW II. The urine samples of the subjects were analysed by the plasma mass spectrometry. The analytical methodology involved pre-concentration of the uranium using co-precipitation and/or evaporation, oxidation of organic matter, purification of uranium with ion exchange chromatography, and mass spectrometry with a double focusing Thermo-Elemental Plasma54 multi-collector ICP-MS equipped with a

Access to primary care is limited by structural determinants such as immigration and health care policy, which varies across Europe. For those migrants who can access primary care and other health services, missed opportunities for HIV testing remain a barrier to earlier testing and diagnosis for migrants in Europe. Clinicians should be aware of these potential structural barriers to HIV testing as well as low perception of HIV risk in migrant groups. ©Ibidun Fakoya, Débora Álvarez-del Arco, Andrew J Copas, Bryan Teixeira, Koen Block, Anne-Francoise Gennotte, Alain Volny-Anne, Janneke P Bil, Giota Touloumi, Julia del Amo, Fiona M Burns.

    Full Text Available Diversos episódios e evoluções recentes mostram a adesão de setores tradicionais e novos das elites brasileiras ao predomínio das finanças e de suas razões na sociedade brasileira. A partir da análise do engendramento e da difusão da governança corporativa e dos fundos de private equities na acepção que elas vêm ganhando no Brasil, podemos mesmo falar de convergência das elites em torno dos mecanismos criados para a medição financeira, ainda que o resultado ocorra por meio de um alargamento de sua polissemia. Esses mecanismos, para cá trazidos no intuito explícito de acelerar e facilitar a integração das empresas brasileiras ao espaço e à lógica que impera nos mercados financeiros, avançam rapidamente, mas acabam recebendo um significado menos hardcore do que os financistas esperam. Ainda que deploráveis para os financistas ortodoxos, esses resultados dificilmente surpreenderiam um cientista social treinado. É por intermédio da polissemia que as abóboras se ajeitam na carroça da sociedade em movimento. A análise desse diálogo social produzido em torno das questões financeiras se torna assim uma excelente janela para a compreensão não só das disputas econômicas, mas também das disputas políticas que sacodem a sociedade brasileira contemporânea.Various recent episodes and evolutions demonstrate how both traditional and new sectors of the Brazilian elite have embraced the dominance of finance and its logic in Brazilian society. An analysis of the creation and diffusion of corporate governance and private equity funds - in the sense these have acquired in Brazil - allows us to identify a convergence of the country's elite sectors in terms of the mechanisms created for financial measurement, although this outcome stems from a broadening of their polysemy.

    Full Text Available Slovenian part of the Adriatic Sea is its most northern part which occupies approximately 200 km2 and is a part of the wider Gulf of Trieste. Slovenian coast consists of 47 kilometers of mostly steep, abrasive marl and sandstone coast. Low accumulation coast is located only at the mouths of the watercourses and represents but a smaller portion, whereas the smallest part is occupied by the limestone abrasion coast. Mainland coastal region is mostly hillside and has a very diverse relief, while plains, in smaller numbers, are located only in the lower parts of the river valleys. Slovenian sea indents the mainland by two larger gulfs: the Gulf of Koper and of Piran and is predominately very shallow. The average depth is around 18 m and the largest depth is 38 m at the Madona cape near Piran. Sea bottom is mostly covered by the thick layer of sediments deposited after the abrasion of the steep cliff coast and by the accumulation of the river alluvium. Due to its shallowness the sea is exposed to high temperature fluctuations and due to the fresh water influx also to the changes of its salinity. The circulation of the sea water is mainly induced by the tide and wind activities, mostly the Bora (strong north-easterly wind which significantly influences the vertical circulation of the water. Water current is weak and unstable. There is a large influx of nutrients into the Slovenian sea, resulting from the soil erosion, surface water influx, watercourses and direct emissions of waste waters into the sea.

This injector has a capability of injecting hydrogen beam with the power of 0.5 MW at 30 keV. For the upgrade of SST-1, power of 1.7 MW at 55 KeV is required. Further, beam power is to be provided for a pulse length of 1000S. We have designed a neutral beam injector (S.K. Mattoo, A.K. Chakraborty, U.K. Baruah, P.K. Jayakumar, M. Bandyopadhyay, N.

    In the North Adriatic, Dense Shelf Water (DSW) forms during cold and dry winters by cooling and evaporation. DSW spreads southward along the western shelf reaching the southern Adriatic basin (1200 m deep) after 1-2 months, where sinks through cascading events. In February 2012, a large Siberian High caused blocking of the Atlantic flow and a westward flow of dry and cold air masses from eastern Russia toward Europe. The North Adriatic experienced a cold spell with large decrease of surface temperature (3° -6° C) associated to severe cold and dry Bora wind. The result was the formation of extremely dense shelf water, further made possible by the very limited discharge of the Po river in the preceding autumn. As contribution to the Italian research programme RITMARE (Italian Research for the Sea), CNR-ISMAR set up a Rapid Environmental Assessment (REA) experiment to study the occurrence, amount, timing and properties of the newly formed DSW. Setting up REA strategies is crucial for several scientific and practical reasons: (i) capturing extreme events to improve our understanding of natural systems in a global-change scenario; (ii) to evaluate their impact on marine systems and the biota; (iii) to address issues related to fluctuating fish stocks as well as (iv) C export and sequestration in the deep sea. The experiment was designed with an integrated approach, including modeling simulations, mooring deployments and quick-response oceanographic cruises. Based on numerical model ensemble, the arrival time of the DSW at the Gargano Cape was forecasted likely starting after March 15, 2012, thus moorings were deployed few days before. Five moorings were deployed in sites selected on the basis of modelling predictions and geology-driven inferences defining areas where the passage of dense shelf water is most likely to occur. Moorings were equipped with down-looking ADCPs, automatic sediment traps, temperature loggers, recorders of temperature, conductivity and

A ETc e o Kc diminuíram linearmente com a salinidade da água de irrigação, com redução da ETc de 4,6% para cada unidade de salinidade. Devido à menor evapotranspiração nos tratamentos salinos, a percolação profunda aumentou com a salinidade da água e correspondeu a 4, 7 and 17% da lâmina total de água aplicada em S1, S2 e S3, respectivamente. Os valores medidos de Kc para S1 foram muito próximos dos valores estimados; portanto, o uso combinado de tensiômetros e tanque de evaporação foi adequado para o manejo da irrigação em ambiente protegido.

    Full Text Available A deficiência de ácido fólico está associada às doenças crônicas não-transmissíveis, complicações na gestação e doenças neurodegenerativas. Objetivou-se discutir o papel do ácido fólico na prevenção de doenças, os aspectos epidemiológicos de sua deficiência, fortificação dos alimentos e suplementação medicamentosa. Realizou-se levantamento bibliográfico, consultando as bases de dados para a obtenção dos artigos completos: MedLine, SciELO, PubMed, Highwire Press e Science Direct. Foram selecionados estudos realizados com seres humanos publicados entre 2004 e 2010. O ácido fólico é importante para as reações de metilação do ácido desoxirribonucléico, prevenção da hiper-homocisteinemia e atua como antioxidante. A deficiência dessa vitamina é descrita em adolescentes, mulheres em idade fértil, gestantes e em idosos. Seu alcance pela dieta é difícil, sendo necessária a inclusão de alimentos fortificados ou suplementos. É importante avaliar o estado nutricional de ácido fólico dos indivíduos antes e após a adoção dessas estratégias, de modo a gerar subsídios para ela-boração de medidas governamentais mais adequadas e eficazes. Destacamos ainda a necessidade da reeducação nutricional para a população brasileira a fim de aumentar o consumo de alimentos fontes de ácido fólico.Folic acid deficiency is associated with non-communicable chronic diseases, pregnancy-associated complications and neurodegenerative diseases. The objective of this paper was to discuss the role of folic acid in disease prevention, the epidemiological aspects of its deficiency and food fortification and supplementation. Articles were searched in the following databases: MedLine, SciELO, PubMed, Highwire Press and Science Direct. Only original studies with humans published between 2004 and 2010 were included. Folic acid is important for DNA methylation and prevention of hyperhomocysteinemia. It also presents antioxidant

Utilizando dos fotomultiplicadores con fotocatodos de pyrex en contacto, encerrados en un blindaje de hierro de 20 cm de espesor, hicieron experimentos para determinar la importancia relativa de las siguientes posibles causas de la actividad de fondo: a) Ionizacion y excitacion del gas residual y de las superficies del dinodo semiconductor, especialmente en las regiones en que la densidad de corriente es maxima; b) Formacion de chispas, electroluminiscencia y emision de campo; c) Realimentacion de iones positivos al fotocatodo, que provoca una emision de electrones, secundarios ; d) Funcionamiento de la propia ventana fotocatodica en caracter de ''fosforo'' para la radiacion cosmica, las particulas del {sup 40}K o las radiaciones de los productos de filiacion del uranio.

    ({sup 71}Ga); una correcta eleccion de la exposicion permite por tanto disminuir la concentracion de electrones en el germanio de tipo n hasta valores muy bajos, o transformar el germanio de tipo n en germanio de tipo p. Afortunadamente, el periodo de semidesintegracion del nuclido que da origen al {sup 71}Ga es largo; ello permite observar en detalle el curso de la ''valoracion radiactiva'' por medicion del coeficiente de Hall y de la comductividad. Los experimentos demuestran tambien que los defectos que producen en la red cristalina los retrocesos de nucleos causados por la emision gamma consecutiva a la captura neutronica eliminan aproximadamente un electron por cada neutron capturado. El recocido a unos 450 Degree-Sign C hace que los atomos desplazados vuelvan a los sitios que les corresponden en la red cristalina. Tambien se han observado efectos del retroceso en el silicio; cada captura da lugar a la eliminacion de, aproximadamente, dos portadores de carga. Los autores analizaran las deducciones a que llevan estos resultados y los obtenidos con el germanio, basandose en los espectros de rayos gamma de captura. En el caso del antimoniuro de indio, los rayos gamma de captura emitidos por el {sup 115}In no bastan para desplazar un numero grande de nucleos, de modo que el efecto principal es la formacion de {sup 116}Sn, que es un donor cuando sustituye a un atomo de indio en una red cristalina de este elemento.

    The Main Ethiopian Rift (MER, 7-9°N) is the type example of a magma-assisted continental rift. The rift axis is populated with regularly spaced silicic caldera complexes and central stratovolcanoes, interspersed with large fields of small mafic scoria cones. The recent (latest Pleistocene to Holocene) history of volcanism in the MER is poorly known, and no eruptions have occurred in the living memory of the local population. Assessment of contemporary volcanic hazards and associated risk is primarily based on the study of the most recent eruptive products, typically those emplaced within the last 10-20 ky. We integrate new and published field observations and geochemical data on tephra deposits from the main Late Quaternary volcanic centres in the central MER to assess contemporary volcanic hazards. Most central volcanoes in the MER host large mid-Pleistocene calderas, with typical diameters of 5-15 km, and associated ignimbrites of trachyte and peralkaline rhyolite composition. In contrast, post-caldera activity at most centres comprises eruptions of peralkaline rhyolitic magmas as obsidian flows, domes and pumice cones. The frequency and magnitude of events varies between individual volcanoes. Some volcanoes have predominantly erupted obsidian lava flows in their most recent post-caldera stage (Fentale), whereas other have had up to 3 moderate-scale (VEI 3-4) explosive eruptions per millennium (Aluto). At some volcanoes we find evidence for multiple large explosive eruptions (Corbetti, Bora-Baricha, Boset-Bericha) which have deposited several centimetres to metres of pumice and ash in currently densely populated regions. This new overview has important implications when assessing the present-day volcanic hazard in this rapidly developing region.

Los canales de las barras requieren a menudo un revestimiento para proteger el moderador de grafito que los circunda contra los impactos y el efecto de desgaste debidos a la insercion de las barras y para asegurar que el canal conserve la alineacion correcta. Tales revestimientos deben consistir en materiales capaces de soportar la abrasion y el impacto, dotados de gran resistencia mecanica, de reducida seccion eficaz y aptos para trabajar sin refrigeracion. Se ha ensayado con ese fin el grafito pirolitico puro y en forma de mezclas, el oxido de aluminio y el carburo de silicio. Los datos obtenidos acerca de los danos fisicos y de irradiacion indican que algunos de estos materiales se prestan para el revestimiento de los canales de las barras en los reactores.

    connections in the nervous system, these synaptic transistors can mimic synaptic stimulation response and short-term synaptic plasticity. The idea of harnessing paper electronics for display applications seems a natural update on the familiar traditional uses of paper to host text and images. Jong-Man Kim and Bora Yoon at Hanyang University in Korea screen print a flexible paper-based display for representing the digits 0-9 [5]. The device exploits the electrochromothermic properties of five different polydiacetylenes to allow a range of activation temperatures and operational voltages for the display. A number of other applications also feature in the special issue, including two different supramolecular recognition architectures for DNA hybridization in sensing applications [6] and all-solid flexible micro-supercapacitors with excellent cycling stability [7]. The demonstrated potential in the alternative energy industry seems particularly fitting given the environmental recommendations of paper electronics. Despite the promising outlook demonstrated for fabricating on paper by screen or ink-jet printing, as Henrik A Andersson and colleagues point out, it may be some time before devices can be printed with the functionality of even the most inexpensive microcontroller or other integrated circuit [8]. In their report they consider different methods to mount and contact standard surface mount device components to ink-jet printed conductive tracks on paper substrates. 'If paper is used as a substrate for printed hybrid electronics, it opens the possibility of integrating low-cost electronic functions directly on packages, even possibly directly in the production line', they add. A blank sheet of paper can be considered useful for making notes, convenient for slipping in a purse or pocket and enormously inspiring for the infinity of ideas not yet written on it. As this special issue demonstrates [2-14] all three attributes are at least as valid when using paper for electronics

    fronteira norte, essas redes provocaram alterações na organização espacial: uma intensa urbanização, uma incipiente diferenciação na hierarquia urbana e a desagregação das atividades extrativas e de subsistência que prevaleciam na fronteira norte até então. Além disso, atraíram imigrantes dos países vizinhos e de outras regiões do país em busca de trabalho ou de oportunidades de enriquecimento, o que garantiu a subsistência dessas cidades e conferiu a região um traço cultural característico.
