    The International Young Physicists' Tournament (IYPT) is a worldwide, annual competition for secondary school students. This is our solution to problem number 10, The Kaye effect, as presented in the final round of the 21st IYPT in Trogir, Croatia. The Kaye effect occurs when a thin stream of shampoo or a different adequate non-Newtonian liquid is poured onto a surface. Suddenly, a jet leaves the heap that is formed by the shampoo and begins to 'dance' around the primary jet like a lasso. The phenomenon ends when the 'dancing' jet hits the primary jet and subsequently collapses. We started our investigations based on available literature (Kaye 1963 Nature 197 1001, Versluis et al 2006 J. Stat. Mech., Collyer and Fischer 1976 Nature 261 682). We made experiments with a similar experimental set-up in which we could determine the velocities of both shampoo streams as well as the angle of the 'dancing' stream. From there on, we developed a theoretical model for the energy loss of the jet in the heap. We discovered that the air layer between the jet and the heap is a necessity for the Kaye effect to occur. At this point, our observations differ from the aforementioned literature. This also accounts for the shampoo beam acting as a light guide. Further experiments concerning the viscoelasticity of the shampoo revealed that the elastic property of the shampoo is necessary for the effect to occur.

  3. McKay correspondence

    1997-01-01

    This is a rough write-up of my lecture at Kinosaki and two lectures at RIMS workshops in Dec 1996, on work in progress that has not yet reached any really worthwhile conclusion, but contains lots of fun calculations. History of Vafa's formula, how the McKay correspondence for finite subgroups of SL(n,C) relates to mirror symmetry. The main aim is to give numerical examples of how the 2 McKay correspondences (1) conjugacy classes of G homology of resolution (2) representations of G cohomology must work, and to restate my 1992 Conjecture as a *tautology*, like cohomology or K-theory of projective space. Another aim is to give an introduction to Nakamura's results on the Hilbert scheme of G-clusters, following his preprints and his many helpful explanations. This is partly based on joint work with Y. Ito, and has benefited from encouragement and invaluable suggestions of S. Mukai.

  12. Willingness to pay for more efficient irrigation techniques in the Lake Karla basin, Greece.

    Mylopoulos, Nikitas; Fafoutis, Chrysostomos

    2014-05-01

    Thessaly, the second largest plain of Greece, is an intensively cultivated agricultural region. The intense and widespread agriculture of hydrophilic crops, such as cotton, has led to a remarkable water demand increase, which is usually covered by the overexploitation of groundwater resources. The Lake Karla basin is a prominent example of this unsustainable practice. Competition for the limited available freshwater resources in the Lake Karla basin is expected to increase in the near future as demand for irrigation water increases and drought years are expected to increase due to climate change. Together with the Unions of Agricultural Cooperatives, the Local Organizations of Land Reclamation is planning to introduce more efficient, water saving automated drip irrigation in the area among farmers who currently use non-automated drip irrigation, in order to ensure that these farmers can better cope with drought years and that water will be used more efficiently in crop production. Saving water use in irrigated agriculture is expected to be beneficial to both farmers and the restoration of Lake Karla and its wildlife like plants and birds. The aim of this study is to understand and record the farmers' opinions regarding the use of irrigation water and the restoration of Lake Karla, and to extract valuable conclusions and perform detailed analysis of the criteria for a new irrigation method. A general choice experiment with face-to-face interviews was conducted, using a random sample of 150 open field farmers from the study area. The farmers, who use the non-automated drip irrigation method and their farms are located within the watershed of Lake Karla, were interviewed regarding their willingness to switch to more efficient irrigation techniques, such as automated and controlled drip irrigation.The most important benefits of automated drip irrigation are an increase in crop yield, as plants are given water in a more precise way (based on their needs during the

    The unpredictable and sometimes incomprehensible moods and behaviors of a teenager can be a head-scratching mystery-especially to parents. Hormones, boredom, social media, peer pressure, and drugs and alcohol are just a few of the factors to consider. Frances E. Jensen, M.D., professor and chair of neurology at the University of Pennsylvania and the mother of two sons who are now in their twenties (along with Washington Post health and science reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Ellis Nutt) look at the emerging science of the adolescent brain and provide advice based on Jensen's own research and experience as a single mother.

    Shear-thinning fluids exhibit surprisingly rich behaviour. One example is the Kaye effect which occurs when a thin stream of a solution of polyisobutylene in Decalin is poured into a dish of the fluid. As pouring proceeds, a small stream of liquid occasionally leaps upward from the heap. This surprising effect, which lasts only a second or so, is named after its first observer A. Kaye, who could offer no explanation for this behaviour. Later, Collyer and Fischer suggested from 250 frames per second cine recordings that the fluid must be highly shear thinning as well as elastic and 'pituitous'. In addition, they concluded that a rigid surface is required to back the reflected liquid stream. While the words bouncing and reflection are associated with non-continuous and elastic effects, we will show here that the Kaye effect is in fact a continuous flow phenomenon. We show that the Kaye effect works for many common fluids, including shampoos and liquid soaps. We reveal its physical mechanism (formation, stabilit...

    Preparation of an approximately two-thirds complete, well-preserved Camarasaurus skeleton has recently been finished. Its detailed osteological description presented here provides a number of interesting characters, some not previously reported for the genus. This specimen (BYU 9047) was earlier named Cathetosaurus lewisi, n. gen. et sp., based on seven characters cited by Jensen (1988). Of these characters, four appear to be age related (this skeleton represents a very old individual) and not of taxonomic significance. Nevertheless, they are useful in advancing our understanding of the ligamentation associated with the sacral and posterior dorsal regions, not only of Camarasaurus but of the sauropods in general. These characters also contribute to a greater knowledge of the ontogenetic development and fusion of the sacral elements. Camarasaurus lewisi (Jensen, 1988) is a valid species whose diagnostic characters include (1) a deep but narrow cleft in the neural spines of presacral vertebrae, which most significantly persists to the sacrum rather than ending in the mid-dorsal region, as in all other species of Camarasaurus; (2) a forward rotation of the ilium with respect to the long axis of the sacrum, a hitherto unreported major character of the genus Camarasaurus; and (3) a steep angle that the posterior chevron articulating facets make with the horizontal plane.

    as an independent identity category in design research. This article deals with the use of the memory theme in design examples from the two companies Georg Jensen and Alessi. Italian design practice is characterized by a tradition of involving memory categories from Italian history, philosophy, art and tradition...... in the design process. Alessi's motivation for involving the concept of memory is that it adds a cultural dimension to the design objects, enabling the objects to make an identity-forming impact. Compared to this, Danish and Scandinavian design practice has traditionally focused on form and function...... with frequent references to the forms of nature. This does not necessarily mean that the memory theme does not form a part of Danish design. Whereas memory is used deliberately in Italian design, it is perhaps manifested more intuitively as a non-culturally generated memory in Danish design, a memory, which...

  1. Estimating contributions to ambient concentrations in Fort McKay

    2005-05-15

    The Trace Metal and Air Contaminants (TMAC) Working Group of the Cumulative Effects Environmental Management Association (CEMA) conducts ongoing assessments of the effects of air emissions on people living in the oil sands region of Alberta. An air emissions inventory was recently conducted by the group to identify 41 substances within the region. The inventory was then used to conduct a dispersion modelling assessment that predicted concentrations of substances in the area. Results of the modelling assessment were then used in a health risk assessment for selected community and health receptors. However, a comparison of the dispersion modelling results with available monitoring data showed disagreement, which suggested that predictions of existing and future concentrations may need improvement. This report investigated possible explanations for the differences between dispersion model predictions and monitoring data, with a particular focus on the Fort McKay area. The modelling and monitoring data were compared, and modifications to the dispersion model were recommended. Methods for developing background concentrations for the community of Fort McKay were also discussed. It was noted that emission numbers in the report were consistent with the emission inventory with the exception of nitrogen oxide (NO{sub x}). Concentrations of sulphur dioxide (SO{sub 2}) and nitrogen dioxide (NO{sub 2}) in Fort McKay were also accurate. However, the modelling did not include any community emissions of particulate matter and did a poor job at estimating the ambient concentrations at Fort McKay, as well as hydrogen sulfide (H{sub 2}S) concentrations. It was suggested that changes in weather during the year and the effect of unusual or upset emissions may have contributed to differences. It was concluded that the use of seasonally variable emissions for compounds released from fugitive sources in dispersion modelling reports should be reconsidered. It was also suggested that

  2. Jensen-Feynman approach to the statistics of interacting electrons.

    Pain, Jean-Christophe; Gilleron, Franck; Faussurier, Gérald

    2009-08-01

    Faussurier [Phys. Rev. E 65, 016403 (2001)] proposed to use a variational principle relying on Jensen-Feynman (or Gibbs-Bogoliubov) inequality in order to optimize the accounting for two-particle interactions in the calculation of canonical partition functions. It consists of a decomposition into a reference electron system and a first-order correction. The procedure appears to be very efficient in order to evaluate the free energy and the orbital populations. In this work, we present numerical applications of the method and propose to extend it using a reference energy which includes the interaction between two electrons inside a given orbital. This is possible, thanks to our efficient recursion relation for the calculation of partition functions. We also show that a linear reference energy, however, is usually sufficient to achieve a good precision and that the most promising way to improve the approach of Faussurier is to apply Jensen's inequality to a more convenient convex function.

    2016-06-01

    Geoffrey Kaye, M.B.B.S. (1903 to 1986), was a prominent Australian anesthetist, researcher, and educator who envisioned that anesthesia practice in Australia would be comparable to European and American anesthesia practice during the 1940s and 1950s. Kaye's close relationship with Francis Hoeffer McMechan, M.D., F.I.C.A. (1879 to 1939), which began when Kaye left a favorable impression on McMechan at a meeting of the Australasian Medical Congress in 1929, eventually led Kaye to establish an educational center for the Australian Society of Anaesthetists at 49 Mathoura Road, Toorak, Melbourne, Australia, in 1951. The center served as the "Scientific Headquarters" and the Australian Society of Anaesthetists' official headquarters from 1951 to 1955. Although anesthesia's recognition as a specialty was at the heart of the center, Kaye hoped that this "experiment in medical education"-equipped with a library, museum, laboratory, workshop, darkroom, and meeting space-would "bring anaesthetists of all lands together" in Australia. The lack of member participation in Kaye's center, however, led Kaye to dissolve the center by 1955. Previous research has documented the history of Kaye's center from correspondence between Kaye and influential American anesthesiologist Paul M. Wood, M.D. (1894 to 1953), from 1939 to 1955. Through letters Kaye sent to American anesthesiologist Paul M. Wood, M.D. (1894 to 1963), the authors see Kaye's detailed plans, design, and intent for the center at 49 Mathoura Road. Comparisons of Kaye's letters to Wood during the 1950s with his letters to Gwenifer Wilson, M.D., M.B.B.S. (1916 to 1988), during the 1980s illustrate a change in Kaye's perceptions regarding the failure of the center.

Moreover, we prove the stability of linear operators in a Hilbert module over a unital C*-algebra.

  5. The Kaye effect revisited: High speed imaging of leaping shampoo

    2003-11-01

    When a visco-elastic fluid such as shampoo or shower gel is poured onto a flat surface the fluid piles up forming a heap on which rather irregular combinations of fluid buckling, coiling and folding are observed. Under specific conditions a string of fluid leaps from the heap and forms a steady jet fed by the incoming stream. Momentum transfer of the incoming jet, combined with the shear-thinning properties of the fluid, lead to a spoon-like dimple in the highly viscous fluid pool in which the jet recoils. The jet can be stable for several seconds. This effect is known as the Kaye effect. In order to reveal its mechanism we analyzed leaping shampoo through high-speed imaging. We studied the jet formation, jet stability and jet disruption mechanisms. We measured the velocity of both the incoming and recoiled jet, which was found to be thicker and slower. By inclining the surface on which the fluid was poured we observed jets leaping at upto five times.

We study a generalisation of the McKay correspondence proposed in hep-th/0504164 called the quantum McKay correspondence by constructing duals to the fractional two-branes. Details are explicitly worked out for two examples -- the crepant resolutions of C^3/Z_3 and C^3/Z_5.

  7. X-15 test pilots - Thompson, Dana, and McKay

    1966-01-01

    NASA pilots Milton O. Thompson, William H. 'Bill' Dana, and John B. 'Jack' McKay are seen here in front of the #2 X-15 (56-6671) rocket-powered research aircraft. Among them, the three NASA research pilots made 59 flights in the X-15 (14 for Thompson, 16 for Dana, and 29 for McKay). The X-15 was a rocket-powered aircraft 50 ft long with a wingspan of 22 ft. It was a missile-shaped vehicle with an unusual wedge-shaped vertical tail, thin stubby wings, and unique fairings that extended along the side of the fuselage. The X-15 weighed about 14,000 lb empty and approximately 34,000 lb at launch. The XLR-99 rocket engine, manufactured by Thiokol Chemical Corp., was pilot controlled and was capable of developing 57,000 lb of rated thrust (actual thrust reportedly climbed to 60,000 lb). North American Aviation built three X-15 aircraft for the program. The X-15 research aircraft was developed to provide in-flight information and data on aerodynamics, structures, flight controls, and the physiological aspects of high-speed, high-altitude flight. A follow-on program used the aircraft as a testbed to carry various scientific experiments beyond the Earth's atmosphere on a repeated basis. For flight in the dense air of the usable atmosphere, the X-15 used conventional aerodynamic controls such as rudder surfaces on the vertical stabilizers to control yaw and canted horizontal surfaces on the tail to control pitch when moving in synchronization or roll when moved differentially. For flight in the thin air outside of the appreciable Earth's atmosphere, the X-15 used a reaction control system. Hydrogen peroxide thrust rockets located on the nose of the aircraft provided pitch and yaw control. Those on the wings provided roll control. Because of the large fuel consumption, the X-15 was air launched from a B-52 aircraft at 45,000 ft and a speed of about 500 mph. Depending on the mission, the rocket engine provided thrust for the first 80 to 120 sec of flight. The remainder of the

    Full Text Available We establish a generalized Ulam-Hyers stability theorem in a Šerstnev probabilistic normed space (briefly, Šerstnev PN-space endowed with ΠM. In particular, we introduce the notion of approximate Jensen mapping in PN-spaces and prove that if an approximate Jensen mapping in a Šerstnev PN-space is continuous at a point then we can approximate it by an everywhere continuous Jensen mapping. As a version of a theorem of Schwaiger, we also show that if every approximate Jensen type mapping from the natural numbers into a Šerstnev PN-space can be approximated by an additive mapping, then the norm of Šerstnev PN-space is complete.

    We give further improvements of the Jensen inequality and its converse on time scales, allowing also negative weights. These results generalize the Jensen inequality and its converse for both discrete and continuous cases. Further, we investigate the exponential and logarithmic convexity of the differences between the left-hand side and the right-hand side of these inequalities and present several families of functions for which these results can be applied.

    Biologists often cope with variation in physiological, environmental and ecological processes by measuring how living systems perform under average conditions. However, performance at average conditions is seldom equal to average performance across a range of conditions. This basic property of nonlinear averaging - known as 'Jensen's inequality' or 'the fallacy of the average' - has important implications for all of biology. For instance, a burgeoning awareness of Jensen's inequality has improved our ability to predict how plants and animals will respond to a warmer and more variable future climate. But for many biologists, the fallacy of the average is still a novel concept. Here, I highlight the importance of Jensen's inequality, provide a simple graphical approach to understanding its effects, and explore its consequences at atomic, molecular, organismal and ecological levels.

    The 'Streptococcus milleri' group (SMG) has recently been recognized as a contributor to bronchopulmonary disease in cystic fibrosis (CF). Routine detection and quantification is limited by current CF microbiology protocols. McKay agar was developed previously for the semi-selective isolation of this group. Here, McKay agar was validated against a panel of clinical SMG isolates, which revealed improved SMG recovery compared with Columbia blood agar. The effectiveness of this medium was evaluated by appending it to the standard CF sputum microbiology protocols in a clinical laboratory for a 6-month period. All unique colony types were isolated and identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Whilst a wide variety of organisms were isolated, members of the SMG were the most prevalent bacteria cultured, and McKay agar allowed routine quantification of the SMG from 10(3) to >10(8) c.f.u. ml(-1) directly from sputum. All members of the SMG were detected [Streptococcus anginosus (40.7 %), Streptococcus intermedius (34.3 %) and Streptococcus constellatus (25 %)] with an overall prevalence rate of 40.6 % in our adult CF population. Without exception, samples where SMG isolates were cultured at 10(7) c.f.u. ml(-1) or greater were associated with pulmonary exacerbations.

    Over a period of two years, 1364 clinical samples from pulmonary sources, were studied in order to compare the Bactec-TB system with the Löwenstein-Jensen medium, for isolation of mycobacteria. Within this period of time, 93 strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were isolated, 71 (76%) were isolated by the Bactec system, and 69 (74%) were isolated by the Löwenstein-Jensen. The number of contaminations was lower for the Bactec system (3.2%) than for the Löwenstein-Jensen medium (5.3%). The mean time of isolation with the Bactec was 16.4 days. The mean time of isolation with Löwenstein-Jensen medium was 21.9 days. Identification of the strains with the Bactec system by the p-nitro-a-acetilamin-beta-hidroxipropiphenone inhibition test gave a 100% correlation with the conventional biochemical methods used for the identification of the same strains growth of Löwenstein-Jensen.

  18. How confident is Fort McKay that industry can reclaim oil sand development

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Fitzpatrick, C. [Fort McKay First Nations, AB (Canada)

    2004-02-05

    This presentation described how traditional environmental knowledge (TEK) can provide valuable information for both the reclamation design and assessment of oil sand development in Fort McKay. Conservation is valued by the Fort McKay First Nations communities who claim that current reclamation methods are too slow, and that the land is not being brought back to its original use with the uniqueness of the boreal landscape. Elders have noted that each year the water level in the Athabasca River is lower. The blowing tailings and coke dust are causing trees to dye and driving animals away. There is concern that the animals that remain may not be safe to eat. The Fort McKay First Nation community has stated that it will view reclamation as a success only when it functions with proof over many generations. The major concerns include: salt in the water draining from reclaimed areas; salt in the soils of reclaimed area; muskeg cannot be recreated; and, the issue of whether cranberry, blueberry and streambank forest areas can be recreated, along with traditional medicinal plants. Other concerns include the loss of rivers such as the Beaver Creek and Tar River, and that the water in reclaimed areas may not be suitable for animals to live in or to drink. tabs., figs.

    2008-07-01

    The thermal in-situ method is commonly used and involves the injection of steam to reduce the viscosity of oil. This presentation discussed an extended-reach slant drilling application known as the MacKay River steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) project or MRX. An overview of the MacKay River area was presented and the objectives of the project were outlined. The MacKay area is located 60 kilometres northwest of Fort McMurray and was Petro Canada's first commercial SAGD project. It has an estimated lifespan of 25 to 30 years. The MRX objectives are to ensure bitumen supply of 40,000 bbl/day at the central facility; to design injectors and producers that minimize liquid level build-up; and to optimize SOR by even steam chamber development. The intent of the project was to reduce logistics, drilling, and facilities costs. The presentation also discussed extended reach cost savings; rig utilization; geology; well design challenges; MRX planning and preparation; MRX directional planning; and liner running installation limits. It was concluded that in going forward, continued well design is important for configuring casing/tubing, slotting design, and cement integrity. figs.

    Garibaldi, A.; Straker, J. [Stantec Ltd., Sidney, BC (Canada)

    2009-07-01

    Cultural keystone species (CKS) shape the cultural identify of people through the roles they have in diet, material and spiritual practices. The use of the CKS concept is regarded as a method of addressing linked social and ecological issues. This paper presented the results of using the CKS model in the indigenous community of Fort McKay, Alberta to address, social, ecological and spiritual values in regional mine-land reclamation. Fort McKay is at the epicenter of the existing mine developments. Its residents regard human and environmental health to be be linked and therefore experience the effects of development and subsequent reclamation on both cultural and ecological levels. The community is actively engaged in working with the local mining companies on issues of mine reclamation design. In order to hold meaning to the local people, oil sand operators used the CKS concept in their reclamation efforts to take into account ecological functionality and also address the linked social factors. Five CKS were identified through a literature review and extensive community interviews. The list includes moose, cranberry, blueberry, ratroot and beaver. These 5 CKS were used to focus discussions and make recommendations for relevant land reclamation within Fort McKay traditional territory. The project has influenced the way both the community and oil sands operators engage with reclamation. Lessons learned from this process will help direct reclamation activities on other portions of traditional territory, while offering guidance to other regional developers for addressing cultural values in reclamation on their leases. 15 refs., 1 fig.

  5. Nature as the Other: The Ethical Dimension in Don McKay's Ecopoetry

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Abdel Mohsen Ibrahim Hashim

    2015-05-01

    Full Text Available Recently, environmental crises, often caused by human hands, have become very common. Accordingly, poets and critics begin to look for new ways of relating with nature. Their writings offer a call for a change in the way we view the natural world and the complex web of relationships that shape it. Throughout his poetry, McKay offers a detailed analysis of how humans may relate better to the environment. For him, the core of ecopoetry lies in the idea that all human and non-human beings are interrelated in a great web that grasps the whole universe. This interconnection promotes our sense of living with the non-human other in a unified community. Therefore, we start to adopt a feeling of humility in our recognition of the non-human nature. Once we feel humble towards the natural world, we become aware of the present environmental crisis that threatens both the human and the non-human.  Regarding the non-human nature as the other, McKay writes ecopoems which astonishingly turn the familiar into unfamiliar making it worthy of note and respect. He believes in considering and valuing things for their complete being, not just for their use. The ethical address in his ecopoetry is not confined to birds, animals or plants. He argues that the nature poet can expand his ethical concern to include other things like tools and technology for instance. So, he writes beautiful odes to cars, musical instruments, baseball gloves, knives, forks and spoons. In brief, the ecopoetry written by McKay presents a profound respect for the otherness of nature dealing with the non-human other in a highly ethical way. Outstandingly, his work reveals a consideration of the other, a shift away from anthropocentrism, a balance between the human and the non-human, and a promotion of sustainability of our shared environment. Standing for all these views in addition to its adoption of the principle of responsibility in our relationship with the non-human nature, McKay

  8. Universal bounds for the Holevo quantity, coherent information \\\\ and the Jensen-Shannon divergence

    Roga, Wojciech; Zyczkowski, Karol

    2010-01-01

    The Holevo quantity provides an upper bound for the mutual information between the sender of a classical message encoded in quantum carriers and the receiver. Applying the strong sub-additivity of entropy we prove that the Holevo quantity associated with an initial state and a given quantum operation represented in its Kraus form is not larger than the exchange entropy. This implies upper bounds for the coherent information and for the quantum Jensen--Shannon divergence. Restricting our attention to classical information we bound the transmission distance between any two probability distributions by the entropic distance, which is a concave function of the Hellinger distance.

    Abbas NAJATI

    2009-01-01

    In this paper, we prove the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability of homomorphisms in quasi-Banach algebras associated with the following Pexiderized Jensen functional equation f(x+y/2+z)-g(x-y/2+z)=h(y).This is applied to investigating homomorphisms between quasi-Banach algebras. The concept of the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability originated from Rassias' stability theorem that appeared in his paper: On the stability of the linear mapping in Banach spaces, Proc. Amer. Math. Soe., 72, 297-300 (1978).

    2005-01-01

    We study fractional 2p-branes and their intersection numbers in non-compact orbifolds as well the continuation of these objects in Kahler moduli space to coherent sheaves in the corresponding smooth non-compact Calabi-Yau manifolds. We show that the restriction of these objects to compact Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces gives the new fractional branes in LG orbifolds constructed by Ashok et. al. in hep-th/0401135. We thus demonstrate the equivalence of the B-type branes corresponding to linear boundary conditions in LG orbifolds, originally constructed in hep-th/9907131, to a subset of those constructed in LG orbifolds using boundary fermions and matrix factorization of the world-sheet superpotential. The relationship between the coherent sheaves corresponding to the fractional two-branes leads to a generalization of the McKay correspondence that we call the quantum McKay correspondence due to a close parallel with the construction of branes on non-supersymmetric orbifolds. We also provide evidence that the boundary...

All three flew the X-15, and Thompson and Dana were also involved in the lifting body flights. McKay was injured in a crash landing in X-15 #2. Although he recovered, the injuries eventually forced him to retire from research flying. In the back row (left to right) are Neil Armstrong, Bruce Peterson, Stanley Butchart, and Joe Walker. Armstrong and Walker also both flew the X-15. Soon after this photo was taken, Armstrong was selected as an astronaut, and seven years later became the first man to walk on the Moon. Walker made the highest flight in the X-15, reaching 354,200 feet. He then went on to fly the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle, and was killed on June 8, 1966 when his F-104N collided with the XB-70. Peterson made the first flight in the HL-10 lifting body, and was later badly injured in the crash of the M2-F2 lifting body. Butchart flew a wide range of research missions in the 1950s, and was the B-29 drop plane pilot for a number of rocket flight.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Fiorenzo Iuliano

    2016-04-01

    Full Text Available This article analyzes Claude McKay’s essays on politics and society, especially those dealing with the racial question in the 1920s US. It reviews these texts, alongside other works (poems and autobiographical writings that McKay produced on the same topics. The article aims at tracing a trajectory in McKay’s political thought: after criticizing the social and economic structures of capitalist and colonial societies, McKay envisages in post-revolutionary USSR a utopian society for oppressed people worldwide. However, his writings, rather than depicting the actual USSR society he knew in the early 1920s, evokes the multicultural myth of the ‘melting pot’ traditionally used to celebrate the US. McKay, maybe unwillingly, enthusiastically praises the myth of American exceptionalism, referring it to the USSR.

    Paraberrapex atlanticus sp. n. (Cestoda: Lecanicephalidea) is described from the spiral intestine of the angel shark Squatina guggenheim Marini from coastal waters off Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. Paraberrapex atlanticus sp. n. can be distinguished from the only species described in the genus, P. manifestus Jensen, 2001 in having cocoons 5-6 times longer with more eggs per cocoon, the extension of the uterine duct, the distribution of vitelline follicles, and the size and density of microtriches on the bothridial surfaces. The presence of P. atlanticus sp. n. in S. guggenheim confirms the specificity of Paraberrapex Jensen, 2001 for squatiniform sharks.

Para identificar tais representações, utilizou-se uma pesquisa qualitativa com 92% dos professores e 25% dos alunos que compõem o Ensino Fundamental da Escola. Por meio das representações sociais dos professores, percebeu-se que, apesar de conhecerem o ecossistema manguezal, eles não conhecem o Parque dos Manguezais assim como os pressupostos da Educação Ambiental, necessitando assim de informações que os auxiliem nesse sentido pois suas representações estão voltadas para uma categoria naturalista, ou seja, a visão da natureza que se deve apreciar, cuidar e respeitar, mas que desconsidera o homem como parte do contexto.

    1994-01-01

    Let G in SL(n,C) be a finite subgroup and Y->X=C^n/G any resolution of singularities of the quotient space. We prove that crepant exceptional prime divisors of Y correspond one-to-one with "junior" conjugacy classes of G. When n=2 this is a version of the McKay correspondence (with irreducible representations of G replaced by conjugacy classes). In the case n=3, a resolution with K_Y=0 is known to exist by work of Roan and others; we prove the existence of a basis of H^*(Y) by algebraic cycles in one-to-one correspondence with conjugacy classes of G. Our treatment leaves lots of open problems.

    When people are walking, they will produce gait signals and different people will produce different gait signals. The research of the gait signal complexity is really of great significance for medicine. By calculating people's gait signal complexity, we can assess a person's health status and thus timely detect and diagnose diseases. In this study, the Jensen-Shannon divergence (JSD), the method of complexity analysis, was used to calculate the complexity of gait signal in the healthy elderly, healthy young people and patients with Parkinson's disease. Then we detected the experimental data by variance detection. The results showed that the difference among the complexity of the three gait signals was great. Through this research, we have got gait signal complexity range of patients with Parkinson's disease, the healthy elderly and healthy young people, respectively, which would provide an important basis for clinical diagnosis.

    Wang Yufeng; Wang Wendong

    2007-01-01

    In this paper, the idea of interest coverage is provided to form clusters in sensor network,which mean that the distance among data trends gathered by neighbor sensors is so small that, in some period, those sensors can be clustered, and certain sensor can be used to replace the cluster to form the virtual sensor network topology. In detail, the Jensen-Shannon Divergence (JSD) is used to characterize the distance among different distributions which represent the data trend of sensors.Then, based on JSD, a hierarchical clustering algorithm is provided to form the virtual sensor network topology. Simulation shows that the proposed approach gains more than 50% energy saving than Statistical Aggregation Methods (SAM) which transmitted data gathered by sensor only when the difference among data exceed certain threshold.

    针对传统方法仅能分析基因的单一可变剪接模式的问题,设计了一种基于Jensen-Shannon(JS)差异的生物信息学方法ASAT,用以分析基因在转录本水平的多可变剪接模式.将ASAT应用于小鼠转录因子Klf1敲除实验的RNA-Seq数据,预测出12个发生了可变剪接变化的基因,并在转录本水平对这些基因的可变剪接模式进行了分析.通过基因功能富集分析,发现其中有两个基因Timp1、Gm13654与Klf1能够显著富集在红血球发育、分化及动态平衡的生物过程.结果表明,ASAT可预测到与生物功能相关的可变剪接基因,并能够分析转录本水平的可变剪接模式.%Due to the fact that traditional methods can only analyze single alternative splicing (AS) pattern of a gene, a bioinformatics method-alternative splicing analysis at transcript level (ASAT) is designed for analyzing multi-AS patterns of a gene at the transcript level. By applying ASAT to an RNA-Seq dataset on the mouse transcription factor Klf1 knockout experiment, 12 genes with significant AS changes are predicted, and then the AS analysis is conducted at the transcript level for the genes detected. By gene ontology (GO) analysis, it is found that two genes we predicted, namely Tim1 and Gml3654, together with Klf1, significantly enrich in the biological processes of eryth-rocyte development, differentiation and homeostasis. The result indicates that ASAT can predict AS genes relevant to biological functions and analyze AS patterns at the transcript level.

    Located at the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) headquarters in Melbourne, Victoria, this internationally significant collection was founded in 1935 by renowned Australian anaesthetist Dr Geoffrey Kaye (1903 to 1986). Although it has always been referred to as a museum, it lacked the necessary management structure and infrastructure to meet museum standards. In March 2003, the first full-time professionally trained Museum Curator Ms Elizabeth Triarico, was employed by ANZCA to work with the Honorary Curator Dr Rod Westhorpe, and the Honorary Assistant Curator; Dr Christine Ball, to build on past achievements and to develop the collection into an accessible and relevant modern museum. Ms Triarico has extensive museum management experience with emphasis on management of major projects, collection management, strategic planning, marketing, interpretation and exhibition development. This paper outlines the management issues and innovative strategies involved in developing this important collection into a professionally managed museum based on best practice standards. It illustrates the benefits of introducing a clear vision and an agreed longterm management plan based on Museums Australia (Victoria) Museum Accreditation Program guidelines.

In both cases it describes "regular polyhedrons" with $k$ edges in each vertex, $n$ edges of each face, with total number of edges $|m|$, and Euler characteristics $\\chi=\\pm 2$. In the case of negative $m$ this equation corresponds to $\\chi=2$ and describes true regular polyhedrons, Platonic solids. The case with positive $m$ corresponds to Euler characteristic $\\chi=-2$ and describes the so called equivelar maps (charts) on the surface of genus $2$. In the former case there are two routes from Platonic solids to simple Lie algebras - abovementioned Diophantine classification and McKay correspondence. We compare them for all solutions of this type, and find coincidence in the case of icosahedron (dodecahedron), corresponding to $E_8$ algebra. In the case of positive $k$, $n$ an...

    The history of ice velocity and calving front position of Daugaard Jensen Gletscher, a large outlet glacier in East Greenland, is reconstructed from field measurements, aerial photography and satellite imagery for the period 1950-2001. The calving terminus of the glacier has remained...... in approximately the same position over the past similar to 50 years. There is no evidence of a change in ice motion between 1968 and 2001, based on a comparison of velocities derived from terrestrial surveying and feature tracking using sequential satellite images. Estimates of flux near the entrance to the fjord...... vs snow accumulation in the interior catchment show that Daugaard Jensen Gletscher has a small negative mass balance. This result is consistent with other mass-balance estimates for the inland region of the glacier....

    Full Text Available Abstract In this paper, a new parameter-dependent refinement of the discrete Jensen's inequality is given for convex and mid-convex functions. The convergence of the introduced sequences is also studied. One of the proofs requires an interesting convergence theorem with probability theoretical background. We apply the results to define some new quasi-arithmetic and mixed symmetric means and study their monotonicity and convergence.

    Distinct parts of the intraparietal sulcal cortex contribute to sensorimotor integration and visual spatial attentional processing. A detailed examination of the morphological relations of the different segments of the complex intraparietal sulcal region in the human brain in standard stereotaxic space, which is a prerequisite for detailed structure-to-function studies, is not available. This study examined the intraparietal sulcus (IPS) and the related sulcus of Jensen in magnetic resonance imaging brain volumes registered in the Montreal Neurological Institute stereotaxic space. It was demonstrated that the IPS is divided into two branches: the anterior ramus and the posterior ramus of the IPS, often separated by a submerged gyral passage. The sulcus of Jensen emerges between the anterior and posterior rami of the IPS, and its ventral end is positioned between the first and second caudal branches of the superior temporal sulcus. In a small number of brains, the sulcus of Jensen may merge superficially with the first caudal branch of the superior temporal sulcus. The above morphological findings are discussed in relation to previously reported functional neuroimaging findings and provide the basis for future exploration of structure-to-function relations in the posterior parietal region of individual subjects.

'Pete' Knight, NASA pilot Milton O. Thompson, and NASA pilot Bill Dana. These six pilots made 125 of the 199 total flights in the X-15. Rushworth made 34 flights (the most of any X-15 pilot); McKay flew 29 times; Engle, Knight, and Dana each flew 16 times; Thompson's total was 14. The X-15 was a rocket-powered aircraft 50 ft long with a wingspan of 22 ft. It was a missile-shaped vehicle with an unusual wedge-shaped vertical tail, thin stubby wings, and unique fairings that extended along the side of the fuselage. The X-15 weighed about 14,000 lb empty and approximately 34,000 lb at launch. The XLR-99 rocket engine, manufactured by Thiokol Chemical Corp., was pilot controlled and was capable of developing 57,000 lb of rated thrust (actual thrust reportedly climbed to 60,000 lb). North American Aviation built three X-15 aircraft for the program. The X-15 research aircraft was developed to provide in-flight information and data on aerodynamics, structures, flight controls, and the physiological aspects of high-speed, high-altitude flight. A follow-on program used the aircraft as a testbed to carry various scientific experiments beyond the Earth's atmosphere on a repeated basis. For flight in the dense air of the usable atmosphere, the X-15 used conventional aerodynamic controls such as rudder surfaces on the vertical stabilizers to control yaw and canted horizontal surfaces on the tail to control pitch when moving in synchronization or roll when moved differentially. For flight in the thin air outside of the appreciable Earth's atmosphere, the X-15 used a reaction control system. Hydrogen peroxide thrust rockets located on the nose of the aircraft provided pitch and yaw control. Those on the wings provided roll control.

  15. Bearing damage assessment using Jensen-Rényi Divergence based on EEMD

    An Ensemble Empirical Mode Decomposition (EEMD) and Jensen Rényi divergence (JRD) based methodology is proposed for the degradation assessment of rolling element bearings using vibration data. The EEMD decomposes vibration signals into a set of intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). A systematic methodology to select IMFs that are sensitive and closely related to the fault is proposed in the paper. The change in probability distribution of the energies of the sensitive IMFs is measured through JRD which acts as a damage identification parameter. Evaluation of JRD with sensitive IMFs makes it largely unaffected by change/fluctuations in operating conditions. Further, an algorithm based on Chebyshev's inequality is applied to JRD to identify exact points of change in bearing health and remove outliers. The identified change points are investigated for fault classification as possible locations where specific defect initiation could have taken place. For fault classification, two new parameters are proposed: 'α value' and Probable Fault Index, which together classify the fault. To standardize the degradation process, a Confidence Value parameter is proposed to quantify the bearing degradation value in a range of zero to unity. A simulation study is first carried out to demonstrate the robustness of the proposed JRD parameter under variable operating conditions of load and speed. The proposed methodology is then validated on experimental data (seeded defect data and accelerated bearing life test data). The first validation on two different vibration datasets (inner/outer) obtained from seeded defect experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of JRD parameter in detecting a change in health state as the severity of fault changes. The second validation is on two accelerated life tests. The results demonstrate the proposed approach as a potential tool for bearing performance degradation assessment.

    We study McKay's observation on the Monster simple group, which relates the 2A-involutions of the Monster simple group to the extended E_8 diagram, using the theory of vertex operator algebras (VOAs). We first consider the sublattices L of the E_8 lattice obtained by removing one node from the extended E_8 diagram at each time. We then construct a certain coset (or commutant) subalgebra U associated with L in the lattice VOA V_{\\sqrt{2}E_8}. There are two natural conformal vectors of central ...

    We study LDPC codes for the channel with $2^m$-ary input $\\underline{x}\\in \\GF(2)^m$ and output $\\underline{y}=\\underline{x}+\\underline{z}\\in \\GF(2)^m$. The receiver knows a subspace $V\\subset \\GF(2)^m$ from which $\\underline{z}=\\underline{y}-\\underline{x}$ is uniformly chosen. Or equivalently, the receiver receives an affine subspace $\\underline{y}-V$ where $\\underline{x}$ lies. We consider a joint iterative decoder involving the channel detector and the LDPC decoder. The decoding system considered in this paper can be viewed as a simplified model of the joint iterative decoder over non-binary modulated signal inputs e.g., $2^m$-QAM. We evaluate the performance of binary spatially-coupled MacKay-Neal code by density evolution. EXIT-like function curve calculations reveal that iterative decoding threshold values are very close to the Shannon limit.

    We present a method based on mutations of helices which leads to the construction (in the large volume limit) of exceptional coherent sheaves associated with the $(\\sum_al_a=0)$ orbits in Gepner models. This is explicitly verified for a few examples including some cases where the ambient weighted projective space has singularities not inherited by the Calabi-Yau hypersurface. The method is based on two conjectures which lead to the analog,in the general case, of the Beilinson quiver for $\\BP^n$. We discuss how one recovers the McKay quiver using the gauged linear sigma model (GLSM) near the orbifold or Gepner point in K\\"ahler moduli space.

    In ``Decoherence of macroscopic closed systems within Newtonian quantum gravity'' (Kay B S 1998 Class.

  1. Wavelet Jensen Shannon divergence as a tool for studying the dynamics of frequency band components in EEG epileptic seizures

    We develop a quantitative method of analysis of EEG records. The method is based on the wavelet analysis of the record and on the capability of the Jensen-Shannon divergence (JSD) to identify dynamical changes in a time series. The JSD is a measure of distance between probability distributions. Therefore for its evaluation it is necessary to define a (time dependent) probability distribution along the record. We define this probability distribution from the wavelet decomposition of the associated time series. The wavelet JSD provides information about dynamical changes in the scales and can be considered a complementary methodology reported earlier [O.A. Rosso, S. Blanco, A. Rabinowicz, Signal Processing 86 (2003) 1275; O.A. Rosso, S. Blanco, J. Yordanova, V. Kolev, A. Figliola, M. Schürmann, E. Başar, J. Neurosci. Methods 105 (2001) 65; O.A. Rosso, M.T. Martin, A. Figliola, K. Keller, A. Plastino, J. Neurosci. Methods 153 (2006) 163]. In the present study we have demonstrated it by analyzing EEG signal of tonic-clonic epileptic seizures applying the JSD method. The display of the JSD curves enables easy comparison of frequency band component dynamics. This would, in turn, promise easy and successful comparison of the EEG records from various scalp locations of the brain.

    Ambient air trends were assessed using data collected over an 8 year period from monitoring stations in Edmonton and Fort McKay, Alberta. In particular, the study evaluated the short term trends in the concentration of carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen dioxide (NO{sub 2}), ozone (O{sub 3}), and particulate matter (PM{sub 2.5}) in Edmonton, as well as the NO{sub 2}, O{sub 3}, PM{sub 2.5}, and total hydrocarbons in Fort McKay. In order to evaluate the ambient air trends, this study examined the changes in concentrations of these pollutants between the 50 - 90 percentiles of concentration distributions for a calendar year. These statistics were assumed to be linear over the period of study and fitted using simple linear regression. Hypothesis tests were performed to determine if the slopes of the best-fit lines were greater or less than zero. There was no indication of a statistically significant short-term trend for NO{sub 2} and O{sub 3} for the city of Edmonton. However, statistically pronounced decreasing trends were noted for CO and PM{sub 2.5}. There was no indication of statistically significant trend for any of the pollutants examined at Fort McKay over the study period. It was cautioned that since the period of study over which trends were examined was short, the changes or lack of changes observed do not necessarily indicate long term trends. However, the results suggest that air quality has remained unchanged during the last 6 to 8 years, despite increased economic development in Edmonton and continued oil sands development in Fort McKay.

    Streptococcus milleri group (SMG) is a group of three streptococcal species (S. anginosus, intermedius and constellatus) that act as opportunist pathogens, among others in cystic fibrosis. Due to their fastidious character, they are both difficult to cultivate and to differentiate from less pathogenic streptococcal species, therefore being most probably underdiagnosed. Semi-selective McKay agar and NAS agar were developed to facilitate SMG recovery from clinical samples; however, direct comparison of recovery rates has not been published yet. We tested the performance of both media on 123 patient samples and demonstrated general superiority of NAS agar for SMG recovery during primary cultivation convincingly. This observation was also confirmed by quantitative drop tests during subculture. Despite the undisputed overall superiority of NAS agar over McKay agar, a smaller fraction of strains grew better on McKay agar. Inter-strain differences were the most probable explanation. Therefore, when economic conditions are not limiting and maximum recovery rate is desirable, both plates are advised to be used in parallel for primary cultivation of clinical samples.

    Full Text Available Mutations in KDM5C gene are linked to X-linked mental retardation, the syndromic Claes-Jensen-type disease. This study focuses on non-synonymous mutations in the KDM5C ARID domain and evaluates the effects of two disease-associated missense mutations (A77T and D87G and three not-yet-classified missense mutations (R108W, N142S, and R179H. We predict the ARID domain’s folding and binding free energy changes due to mutations, and also study the effects of mutations on protein dynamics. Our computational results indicate that A77T and D87G mutants have minimal effect on the KDM5C ARID domain stability and DNA binding. In parallel, the change in the free energy unfolding caused by the mutants A77T and D87G were experimentally measured by urea-induced unfolding experiments and were shown to be similar to the in silico predictions. The evolutionary conservation analysis shows that the disease-associated mutations are located in a highly-conserved part of the ARID structure (N-terminal domain, indicating their importance for the KDM5C function. N-terminal residues’ high conservation suggests that either the ARID domain utilizes the N-terminal to interact with other KDM5C domains or the N-terminal is involved in some yet unknown function. The analysis indicates that, among the non-classified mutations, R108W is possibly a disease-associated mutation, while N142S and R179H are probably harmless.

    Full Text Available ABSTRACT The Neotropical micromoth genus Leurocephala Davis & Mc Kay, 2011 (Lepidoptera, Gracillariidae was originally described to include only the type species, L. schinusae Davis & Mc Kay, 2011, whose leaf miner larvae are associated with Anacardiaceae in Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. An integrative analysis including morphology, life history and DNA barcode sequences revealed that specimens collected on Schinus molle L. (Anacardiaceae in the coastal valleys of the Atacama Desert of northern Chile belong to a second species of this formerly monotypic genus. Adults of Leurocephala chilensis Vargas & Moreira sp. nov. are herein described and illustrated in association with the immature stages and life history, and corresponding phylogenetic relationships are assessed based on DNA barcode sequences. This finding provides the first record of Leurocephala from west of the Andes Range, expanding remarkably its geographic range. It is suggested that the extent of diversity within Leurocephala is much greater and that variation in geographic factors and host plant use may have modeled it, an evolutionary hypothesis that should be assessed in further studies.

    2012-12-01

    Jensen et al. (Learn Memory 3(2-3):243-256, 1996b) proposed an auto-associative memory model using an integrated short-term memory (STM) and long-term memory (LTM) spiking neural network. Their model requires that distinct pyramidal cells encoding different STM patterns are fired in different high-frequency gamma subcycles within each low-frequency theta oscillation. Auto-associative LTM is formed by modifying the recurrent synaptic efficacy between pyramidal cells. In order to store auto-associative LTM correctly, the recurrent synaptic efficacy must be bounded. The synaptic efficacy must be upper bounded to prevent re-firing of pyramidal cells in subsequent gamma subcycles. If cells encoding one memory item were to re-fire synchronously with other cells encoding another item in subsequent gamma subcycle, LTM stored via modifiable recurrent synapses would be corrupted. The synaptic efficacy must also be lower bounded so that memory pattern completion can be performed correctly. This paper uses the original model by Jensen et al. as the basis to illustrate the following points. Firstly, the importance of coordinated long-term memory (LTM) synaptic modification. Secondly, the use of a generic mathematical formulation (spiking response model) that can theoretically extend the results to other spiking network utilizing threshold-fire spiking neuron model. Thirdly, the interaction of long-term and short-term memory networks that possibly explains the asymmetric distribution of spike density in theta cycle through the merger of STM patterns with interaction of LTM network.

    Full Text Available Reproductive and Mortality Characters of Young Toronké Sheep on the Animal Research Station of Kayes. Livestock which is an important component of Malian economy (18.5% GNP remains low graded because of the extreme vulnerability of it's potential of production due to persistent harsh climate and to non adapted production techniques. Small ruminants that have a short production cycle and a good potential of milk and meat production could rapidly contributed to the objective of food self-sufficiency. However, small ruminants face major constraints like low numeric productivity and high mortality of young animals. The objectives of this study are to evaluate reproductive parameters and the mortality of young Toronke sheep. Toronke sheep was studied in the semi-arid zone of Kayes, Mali, at the Toronke Animal Science Research Station. Convexilign animal, eumetric, its head is long and strong in the male and small in the female. The color is in a white background, dominated with the red or black patches (77%. The uniform colors found were white (12%, red (9% and black (2%. The average first kidding age was 545 ± 145 days. The average interval between two successive kidding fluctuated from 334 to 253 days. Rate of fecundity was 92%. Prolificity varied from 1.02 to 1.06 and annual rate of reproduction between 1.06 and 1.20 according to the age. Kidding occurred all year long. However, kidding are higher in December when occur 40 to 50% of kidding, indicating a maximum fertility in June-July, beginning of the rainy season, more favorable period for natural feed sources. Mortality of young animals was high and evaluated in opposite side of the age. So, 26% of the mortality occurred during the first month of the kid's life and 56% of the mortality occurred during the first three months of their life (0-90 days. The mains reasons of the deaths were feed deficiencies (51% and digestive affections (21%. Death was more frequent from January to March with

    Full Text Available Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains resistant to streptomycin (SM, isoniazid (INH, and/or rifampin (RIF as determined by the conventional Löwenstein-Jensen proportion method (LJPM were compared with the E test, a minimum inhibitory concentration susceptibility method. Discrepant isolates were further evaluated by BACTEC and by DNA sequence analyses for mutations in genes most often associated with resistance to these drugs (rpsL, katG, inhA, and rpoB. Preliminary discordant E test results were seen in 75% of isolates resistant to SM and in 11% to INH. Discordance improved for these two drugs (63% for SM and none for INH when isolates were re-tested but worsened for RIF (30%. Despite good agreement between phenotypic results and sequencing analyses, wild type profiles were detected on resistant strains mainly for SM and INH. It should be aware that susceptible isolates according to molecular methods might contain other mechanisms of resistance. Although reproducibility of the LJPM susceptibility method has been established, variable E test results for some M. tuberculosis isolates poses questions regarding its reproducibility particularly the impact of E test performance which may vary among laboratories despite adherence to recommended protocols. Further studies must be done to enlarge the evaluated samples and looked possible mutations outside of the hot spot sequenced gene among discrepant strains.

    The West African country of Mali implemented referral systems to increase spatial access to emergency obstetrical care and lower maternal mortality. We test the hypothesis that spatial access- proxied by travel time during the rainy and dry seasons- is associated with in-hospital maternal mortality. Effect modification by caesarean section is explored. All women treated for emergency obstetrical complications at the referral hospital in Kayes, Mali were considered eligible for study. First, we conducted descriptive analyses of all emergency obstetrical complications treated at the referral hospital between 2005 and 2007. We calculated case fatality rates by obstetric diagnosis and travel time. Key informant interviews provided travel times. Medical registers provided clinical and demographic data. Second, a matched case-control study assessed the independent effect of travel time on maternal mortality. Stratification was used to explore effect modification by caesarean section. Case fatality rates increased with increasing travel time to the hospital. After controlling for age, diagnosis, and date of arrival, a travel time of four or more hours was significantly associated with in-hospital maternal mortality (OR: 3.83; CI: 1.31-11.27). Travel times between 2 and 4 h were associated with increased odds of maternal mortality (OR 1.88), but the relationship was not significant. The effect of travel time on maternal mortality appears to be modified by caesarean section. Poor spatial access contributes to maternal mortality even in women who reach a health facility. Improving spatial access will help women arrive at the hospital in time to be treated effectively.

    Review echocardiography and outcomes before and after Ross procedures, including patients undergoing biventricular conversion with Damus-Kaye-Stansel (DKS) takedown. A retrospective review was performed on 62 patients undergoing simple (control group) and complex Ross procedures, including 12 patients who underwent biventricular conversion with Ross operation and DKS takedown (complex). Echocardiography was reviewed preoperatively and at discharge and late follow-up. Kaplan-Meier estimates of patient survival and freedom from reintervention were obtained. In all, 62 patients had a median age of 4.5 years (interquartile range [IQR]: 1-12.5), weight of 16.4kg (IQR: 8-41), and follow-up of 3.8 years (IQR: 1.3-6). The complex DKS takedown group had 2 deaths, no neoaortic valve or root reinterventions, and 3 right ventricular outflow tract (VOT) reinterventions. There were no differences from the control group in left VOT or right VOT reinterventions. Neither group showed differences between pre- and late follow-up aortic root and ascending aorta dimensions, and no correlations were found among preoperative pulmonary valve (PV) size, late aortic regurgitation (AR), aortic root, or ascending aortic Z-scores. Aortic valve size increased from discharge to late follow-up for both groups (P ≤ .05); 90% of patients at late follow-up had mild or less AR with similar distributions in severity between complex and control groups. Severity of late AR showed no correlation with preoperative PV size and is independent of it. The Ross procedure has good short-term results in simple and complex patients and should be considered in those undergoing Ross operation with biventricular conversion and DKS takedown. Moreover, native PV size should not be a contraindication for Ross procedure.

    关于哈莱姆文艺复兴这场非洲裔美国历史上最伟大的艺术运动的论述中,几乎无一例外地将它的缺点与波希米亚形象(即19世纪中叶欧洲浪漫主义意识形态发明的生活放浪不羁、反对资产阶级的艺术家形象)联系在一起.然而,本文却认为位于纽约哈莱姆南端的波希米亚社区格林威治村正是这场黑人艺术运动关键的孵化器.通过考察牙买加出生的诗人克劳德·麦凯,本文认为哈莱姆文艺复兴早期具有开拓性的部分诗作同时也是为格林威治村的波希米亚群落而作,尤其是麦凯早期创作的极具影响力的爱情诗集《哈莱姆身影》(1922年).如若不将它作为"抒情左翼"的元抒情诗来听,难以得其要旨.所谓"抒情左翼",是指格林威治村波希米亚主义的政治之锋,旨在打破凝思与行动之间的屏障、性解放与经济解放之间的屏障、艺术家工作室与革命者街垒之间的屏障.一旦回到这个善于用言语表达的波希米亚群落之中,麦凯被忽略的爱情诗就在以一种当时被认为波希米亚式的睿智质疑自我-公众的联通中显示出其大众价值观.可以说,正是通过这种质疑,一如他通过对黑人战斗性的礼赞,他的诗歌"策划"了"哈莱姆文艺复兴".%Few accounts of the Harlem Renaissance, the most significant artistic movement in African-American history, fail to link its failings to the figure of the bohemian, the type of the free-living anti-bourgeois artist invented in the Romantic ideology of mid-nineteenth-century Europe.By contrast, this essay suggests that the bohemian community of Greenwich Village, a New York neighborhood far south of Harlem, was in fact a crucial incubator of the black renaissance. Considering the case of the Jamaican-born poet Claude McKay (1889 -1948), I argue that some pioneering Harlem Renaissance verse is also an opinionated contribution to the conversational community of Village bohemia.

    Recent collections of cestode parasites from two species of the myliobatid genus Aetomylaeus Garman from several localities in the Pacific Ocean resulted in the discovery of two new species of Halysioncum Caira, Marques, Jensen, Kuchta et Ivanov, 2013. Halysioncum gibsoni sp. n. from Aetomylaeus maculatus (Gray) in the South China Sea off Borneo differs from all of its congeners in having the following combination of characters: 27 apical hooks (14 type A and 13 type B hooks), 11-12 lateral hooklets, 22-28 spines per column on the cephalic peduncle, testes distributed in a single column and an internal seminal vesicle. Halysioncum arafurense sp. n., recovered from Aetomylaeus cf. nichofii 2 (sensu Naylor et al. 2012b) in the Arafura Sea off the Wessel Islands, Northern Territory, Australia, can be distinguished from its congeners based on the following combination of characters: 23 apical hooks (12 type A and 11 type B hooks), the number of lateral hooklets (9-11), the number of spines per column on the cephalic peduncle (20-24), the number and distribution of the testes (13-15 testes in two irregular columns), and the distribution of vitelline follicles (interrupted dorsally at the level of the ovarian lobes). Both species represent the first verified records of diphyllideans from eagle rays of the genus Aetomylaeus and formally extend the host associations of diphyllideans to include a third genus of Myliobatiformes. The myliobatiforms are indeed an understudied group of available hosts for diphyllideans and represent interesting target hosts if the diversity of diphyllidean tapeworms is to be fully estimated and understood.

    Full Text Available Background: Tuberculosis (TB, a dreadful disease known to mankind continues to be a problem in a developing country like India. The incidence of people getting infected with TB is on the rise due to compounding factors like coinfection with the human immunodefiency virus and multidrug-resistant strains. There is a definitive need for early diagnosis and treatment of TB to curb transmission of the infection. Direct smear microscopy, though cheap and rapid, lacks sensitivity. Isolation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in culture requires a long time, because of which there is a need for a rapid method which has good sensitivity and specificity for the detection of M. tuberculosis. The present study was undertaken to determine the test which diagnoses TB rapidly and to compare the sensitivity of smear microscopy, concentration method, rapid slide culture, and Lowenstein - Jensen (LJ culture. Materials and Methods: Sputum samples of 200 patients were subjected to direct smear and concentration by modified Petroff′s method. The concentrated sputum was also taken for slide culture using human blood medium and inoculated on LJ media. Results: LJ culture was positive in 47 (23.5% cases, of which three were nontubercular mycobacteria. Using LJ culture as the standard method, the sensitivity of direct smear, concentration method, and rapid slide culture method was 68, 83, and 89%, respectively, and specificity was 100% in all the three tests. Conclusion: Rapid slide culture showed good sensitivity which was comparable to and next in efficacy to LJ culture and this technique can be adopted in the Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (RNTCP as it is a rapid, cheap, sensitive, and specific method.

    The identification of functionally or structurally important non-conserved residue sites in protein MSAs is an important challenge for understanding the structural basis and molecular mechanism of protein functions. Despite the rich literature on compensatory mutations as well as sequence conservation analysis for the detection of those important residues, previous methods often rely on classical information-theoretic measures. However, these measures usually do not take into account dis/similarities of amino acids which are likely to be crucial for those residues. In this study, we present a new method, the Quantum Coupled Mutation Finder (QCMF) that incorporates significant dis/similar amino acid pair signals in the prediction of functionally or structurally important sites. The result of this study is twofold. First, using the essential sites of two human proteins, namely epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and glucokinase (GCK), we tested the QCMF-method. The QCMF includes two metrics based on quantum Jensen-Shannon divergence to measure both sequence conservation and compensatory mutations. We found that the QCMF reaches an improved performance in identifying essential sites from MSAs of both proteins with a significantly higher Matthews correlation coefficient (MCC) value in comparison to previous methods. Second, using a data set of 153 proteins, we made a pairwise comparison between QCMF and three conventional methods. This comparison study strongly suggests that QCMF complements the conventional methods for the identification of correlated mutations in MSAs. QCMF utilizes the notion of entanglement, which is a major resource of quantum information, to model significant dissimilar and similar amino acid pair signals in the detection of functionally or structurally important sites. Our results suggest that on the one hand QCMF significantly outperforms the previous method, which mainly focuses on dissimilar amino acid signals, to detect essential sites

    The aim of this article is to provide early detection of cervical cancer by using both Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images of same patient. When the studies in the literature are examined, it is seen that the AFM and SEM images of the same patient are not used together for early diagnosis of cervical cancer. AFM and SEM images can be limited when using only one of them for the early detection of cervical cancer. Therefore, multi-modality solutions which give more accuracy results than single solutions have been realized in this paper. Optimum feature space has been obtained by Discrete Wavelet Entropy Energy (DWEE) applying to the 3 × 180 AFM and SEM images. Then, optimum features of these images are classified with Jensen Shannon, Hellinger, and Triangle Measure (JHT) Classifier for early diagnosis of cervical cancer. However, between classifiers which are Jensen Shannon, Hellinger, and triangle distance have been validated the measures via relationships. Afterwards, accuracy diagnosis of normal, benign, and malign cervical cancer cell was found by combining mean success rates of Jensen Shannon, Hellinger, and Triangle Measure which are connected with each other. Averages of accuracy diagnosis for AFM and SEM images by averaging the results obtained from these 3 classifiers are found as 98.29% and 97.10%, respectively. It has been observed that AFM images for early diagnosis of cervical cancer have higher performance than SEM images.

    Full Text Available Background: Mycobacterial antigen MPB64 is a secretory protein specific for Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. A lateral flow immunochromatographic assay (ICA is a method used for the rapid differentiation of M. tuberculosis complex. Aim: We aimed to evaluate the performance of ICA in rapid differentiation of M. tuberculosis complex from 97 Mycobacterium species other than tuberculosis (MOTT, which are grown in Lφwenstein-Jensen and TK-selective (SLC medium. Materials and Methods: The study was performed in our laboratory between January 2009 and January 2010. A total of 394 isolates consisting of reference strains of 34 M. tuberculosis from World Health Organization (WHO collection, 97 different MOTT bacilli, 7 Mycobacterium bovis BCG substrains and total 256 clinical Mycobacterium isolates were tested by ICA, which is based on anti-MPB64 monoclonal antibodies. All the strains were inoculated onto a TK-SLC (selective medium and Lφwenstein-Jensen medium. TK-SLC is a new rapid mycobacterial culture medium that indicates mycobacterial growth by colour change. Results: The growth of mycobacterial strains was observed in 10-12 days on TK-SLC medium. ICA test was performed in 15 minutes. All strains belonging to M. tuberculosis complex group were found positive and all MOTT species were found negative on ICA slides.

    提出了一种新的简单高效记忆梯度协方差跟踪算法。首先,利用记忆梯度算法优化协方差目标模板与候选目标的距离函数以快速精确搜索最佳匹配目标,充分利用记忆梯度算法避免收敛到局部最优解,克服最速下降算法中穷尽局部搜索的低效。同时,为减少黎曼流形空间上高维正定对称协方差矩阵相似性度量的计算负担,用JBLD(Jensen-Bregman LogDet)方法进行协方差特征的相似性度量。该度量在基于梯度优化算法的框架下有助于梯度的快速计算。实验利用多场景视频标准测试库及新的评价指标,验证了文中算法性能优于对比算法。%A novel, simple and efficient memory gradient covariance tracking algorithm is proposed, which can optimize the distance function between the covariance target mould and the candidate target to search the best matched target quickly and accurately. In order to overcome the low efficiency of the exhaustive local searching in steepest descent algorithm, the memory gradient algorithm is taken full advantages to avoid converging to local opti⁃mal point. To reduce the calculation burden of the similarity metric for high dimensional positive symmetric covari⁃ance matrices under Riemannian space, Jensen-Bregman LogDet (JBLD) divergence metric is utilized to measure the similarity of covariance features. Besides that, the JBLD metric contributes to fast computation of the gradient under the framework of the gradient optimization algorithm. In the experiment, multi-scenario video standard testing library and new evaluation indexes are used. The experiment results show that the performance of the algorithm is better than compared algorithms.

    Caran, Şemsettin

    2016-07-01

    In the Kayıköy area of Isparta-Gölcük district, Inner Isparta Angle, SW Anatolia, Turkey, a small volume of newly discovered K-rich mafic potassic magma was emplaced in the form of dome in the vicinity of graben structures under Pliocene (3.68 ± 0.5 Ma) extensional tectonics. Kayıköy leucite ankaratrites are made up of abundant diopside, barian phlogopite and leucite, and lesser olivine, that rarely contains Cr-spinel, nepheline and haüyne, with abundant magnetite. They have low SiO2 (44.00-46.04 wt.%) and Al2O3 (12.10-12.64 wt.%) with high K2O (4.00-4.42 wt.%), CaO (13.50-14.40 wt.%) and MgO (8.52-9.36 wt.%), with high Cr (397-547 ppm) and moderate Ni (57-74 ppm) contents. They represent the less evolved silica-undersaturated mafic potassic magmas within the Isparta-Gölcük volcanic province, and may be considered another parental source to the wide spectrum of the K-rich rocks. They are highly enriched in most of the incompatible elements (e.g., Ba, 2761 to > 10,000 ppm; Sr, 3700-4074 ppm; Th, 33.60-36.99 ppm; Zr, 274-321 ppm) with high LREEs, low HREEs and elevated LREEs/HREEs ratios [(La/Yb)N, 73-80] and are comparable with kamafugite and carbonatites. Trace element patterns have negative P, Ti and Nb-Ta anomalies in common with the Italian kamafugite province and lack of a Eu anomaly, in contrast to the negative Eu anomaly of the Italian province. Their Sr87/86-Nd143/144 (0.703877-0.512765) isotopic compositions, together with those of other potassic volcanics from the Inner Isparta Angle, coincide with the West Quinling (China) kamafugites with highly depleted mantle signatures, and young East African carbonatites. Olivine-Cr-spinel pairs, high Mg# (0.69-0.73) numbers and Cr values, and high incompatible and LREE contents in Kayıköy leucite ankaratritic magma are consistent with near-primary magmas equilibrated with enriched and heterogeneous (peridotitic/pyroxenitic) mantle sources.

    great portion of the populationremained concealed following the census of 1927, the governmentsought to make various amnesty regulations related to the civil registry.After the law was enacted, the people rushed to civil register offices andwith the great demand of the public, the government sought for asolution. The final solution was to assign all public officers that were infield service and available to take in charge, to civil registrationprocedures. Through the ordinance, made for this aim in March 1934, arapid success was attained and then through the Law related toRegistration of Concealed Population, which was made in July 1934,the legal basis of the mechanism was founded. Within the scope of thisstudy, the mechanism mentioned will be sought to be analyzed. Thefundamental reference for our study will be the civil registry books. Osmanlı Devleti’nin son dönemlerine kadar düzenli bir nüfus siyaseti yerine, daha çok vergi ve askeri ihtiyaçlarını karşılamaya yönelik nüfus ve arazi istatistikleri tuttuğu bilinmektedir. Nüfus işlerini düzenlemekle görevli teşkilat Osmanlı devletinin Tanzimat’la başlayan modernleşme döneminde oluşturulmaya başlanmıştır. Sonraki dönemde devleti çöküşe götüren nedenler, sağlıklı bir nüfus siyaseti yürütülmesinin önüne geçmişti.Bağımsızlık Savaşı vererek kurulan yeni Cumhuriyet idaresi, nüfus işleri bakımından eski idareden son derece kötü bir miras devralmıştı.

    Objective To evaluate the preliminary effect of tricuspid annuloplasty for patients with dilated tricuspid annulus and left-sided heart valve surgery by employing combined bicuspidization and modified Kay annuloplasty. Methods Combined bicuspidization and modified Kay annuloplasty were performed in 158 patients with dilated tricuspid annulus (tricuspid annulus diameter/body surface area ≥21 mm/m2) and left-sided heart valve surgery in West China Hospital between January 2010 and May 2011. There were 27 male and 131 female patients whose age ranged from 17 to 74 (45. 9± 10. 4) years. A total of 92 patients had atrial fibrillation and 66 patients were in sinus rhythm. The severity of tricuspid regurgitation (TR) was graded 0 through 5 as determined by echocardiography. Results All the patients recovered from surgery and were discharged from hospital. The average cardiopulmonary bypass time was 100.8±30.5( range, 54 to 273) min, and the average aortic cross clamping time was 64. 5 ± 22. 0 (range, 25 to 162)min. The average lowest esophageal temperature during aortic cross clamping was 28. 5 ± 1. 1 (range, 26. 3 to 34. 1)℃ . The average postoperative follow-up was 11. 0 ± 5. 0 ( range, 3 to 19 ) months. The postoperative TR severity was significantly lower than preoperative TR severity (2. 2±1. 3 versus 0. 4±0. 8, P 0.05). Conclusion It is reasonable to perform tricuspid annuloplasty for patients with dilated tricuspid annulus and left-sided heart valve surgery according to their index of tricuspid annulus diameter/body surface area (≥ 21 mm/m2). To prevent postoperative residue or progression of TR in patients with dilated tricuspid annulus, it is effective to employ combined bicuspidization and modified Kay annuloplasty.%目的 观察用联合二瓣化和改良Kay成形术处理左心瓣膜手术患者三尖瓣瓣环扩张的临床结果. 方法 回顾性分析2010年1月至2011年5月华西医院158例伴有三尖瓣瓣环扩张(三

    Maciej Urbanek

    2015-04-01

    Full Text Available The main objective of this paper is to reconstruct Jaspers’ views on philosophical anthropology of the early twentieth century. The text can be divided into three parts. First part tries to reconstruct direct and indirect references which Jaspers makes toward: a term “anthropology”, b the representatives of philosophical anthropology. Second part shows Jaspers’ attitude toward Scheler’s anthropology. Third and final part raises a question: Why do we often regard Jaspers’ philosophy as anthropology, can he be considered as philosophical anthropologist? We will show that the main point of his critic is that anthropology sets biological point of view as a starting point for its inquiry on human being. Therefore, human being can not be seen adequately from anthropological perspective. Its specificity is reduced by anthropologists to the specific characteristics of species, a collection of biological, psychological and social conditions that describe the phenomenon of man but do not reach the depths of the human being.

    2006-06-01

    Full Text Available The paper seeks to reconstruct the notion of the death in Karl Jaspers' philosophy. It analyses and places the notion in the whole body of the theory of the 'ultimate' situations such as it is presented in Jaspers' youth 'Psychologie der Weltanschauungen' (1919 and the mature 'Philosophie' (1932 as well. The results could be pointed as follows: (i it characterises the intrinsic features of the metaphysical thought of Jaspers as the basis for the theory of 'ultimate' situations; (ii it shows how the theory determined his existential anthropology; and, finally, (iii it explains how the theory culminates in the notion of the death as the most specific formulation. In that respect, the paper determines how the notion of the death expresses the intrinsic features of the Jaspers' existential kind of philosophizing by reflecting its spirit in the most profound manner. In Jaspers' philosophy the death stands as the key exemplification of 'ultimate' situations (in terms of philosophical reflection and as the point of the reference in order to obtain the meaning of concrete life (in terms of significance for the individual existence.

    Full Text Available “Mecmua-i eş’ar” registered with 1467/14 numbered work in İzmir National Library that we have tried to promote, emerges as the fourteenth work in a booklet collected in a single collection of the nineteen separate works. At first glance, this magazine which draws attention with its very small but with legible writing, a clean talik writing and orderly layout creates an impression that it is the result of a mindful hand with its floral ornament in the first pages. The name ofthe person who sorts out the magazine and the sorting date has notbeen specified. A period panorama confronts us when the chosen poetsfor the magazine have been taken into consideration. There is aselection from the poets who lived for about one century between theyears of the first quarter of the fifteenth century and first quarter of thesixteenth century.Another intriguing aspect is that the poetry magazines is the webof literary interaction between the poets included in the same work. TheOttoman poetry poets whose poems are listed consecutively with thepoets they took as an example and who taunt each other and livingtogether in the same period are just like selected specially. Although thework is not a taunting writing (paralel magazine, that there are twopoems which taunts each other strengthens the possibility that paralelwriting can confront us in the selected poetry magazines.The nineteen of the total twenty three poems are the eulogy in thismagazine which is missing from the beginning and they appear like“mecmua-i kasaid”. Another distinctive feature of this work that wecome across frequently in selected poetry magazines is that the poemswhich are in lyric verse form are not preferred in this selection.

  18. Multistate outbreak of listeriosis associated with Jensen Farms cantaloupe--United States, August-September 2011.

    Science.gov (United States)

    2011-10-07

    Listeriosis is caused by Listeria monocytogenes, a gram-positive bacillus common in the environment and acquired by humans primarily through consumption of contaminated food. Infection causes a spectrum of illness, ranging from febrile gastroenteritis to invasive disease, including sepsis and meningoencephalitis. Invasive listeriosis occurs predominantly in older adults and persons with impaired immune systems. Listeriosis in pregnant women is typically a mild "flu-like" illness, but can result in fetal loss, premature labor, or neonatal infection. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. On September 2, 2011, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) notified CDC of seven cases of listeriosis reported since August 28. On average, Colorado reports two cases of listeriosis annually in August. By September 6, all seven Colorado patients interviewed with the Listeria Initiative* questionnaire reported eating cantaloupe in the month before illness began, and three reported eating cantaloupe marketed as "Rocky Ford."

    Let X, Y be vector spaces. It is shown that if a mapping f: X → Y satisfiesf(x+y/2+z)+f(x-y/2+z)=f(x)+2f(z), (0.1)f(x+y/2+z)-f(x-y/2+z)= f(y), (0.2)or2f(x+y/2+z)=f(x)+f(y)+2f(z) (0.3)for all x, y, z ∈ X, then the mapping f: X → Y is Cauchy additive.Furthermore, we prove the Cauchy-Rassias stability of the functional equations (0.1), (0.2) and (0.3) in Banach spaces. The results are applied to investigate isomorphisms between unital Banach algebra.

    The Upper Jurassic Morrison Formation has yielded one of the richest floras of the so-called transitional conifers'' of the Middle Mesozoic. Recently, a silicified axis of one of these conifers was collected from the Salt Wash member in essentially the same horizon as a previously reported partial Stegosaurus skeleton. In addition, two other axes of conifers were collected in the same immediate vicinity. Paleoecological considerations are extrapolated from the coniferous flora, vertebrate fauna and associated lithologies. Techniques of paleodendrology and relationships of extant/extinct environments are compared. The paleoclimatic conditions of the transitional conifers and associated dinosaurian fossils are postulated.

  2. Detecting dynamical changes in time series by using the Jensen Shannon divergence

    Most of the time series in nature are a mixture of signals with deterministic and random dynamics. Thus the distinction between these two characteristics becomes important. Distinguishing between chaotic and aleatory signals is difficult because they have a common wide band power spectrum, a delta like autocorrelation function, and share other features as well. In general, signals are presented as continuous records and require to be discretized for being analyzed. In this work, we introduce different schemes for discretizing and for detecting dynamical changes in time series. One of the main motivations is to detect transitions between the chaotic and random regime. The tools here used here originate from the Information Theory. The schemes proposed are applied to simulated and real life signals, showing in all cases a high proficiency for detecting changes in the dynamics of the associated time series.

    Full Text Available e point of the article is to analyse and reflect on certain symptoms of anorexia nervosa in light of Karl Jaspers and Erich Fromm’s ideas and social constructivism. Contemplating the disorder in view of the philosophical ideas mentioned earlier, the author analyses such aspects of patients as: functioning on the verge of life and death, the paradoxical struggle to escape from freedom in search of independence, as well as various understandings and descriptions of anorexia in consideration of social constructivism. The author shares thoughts and poses hypotheses, trying to view anorexia in light of selected philosophical and psychological ideas, which in their general assumptions were not concerned with defining nor analysing anorexia nervosa. In view of Karl Jaspers’ ideas, the author focuses on the so called ‘limit-situations’, in the ideas of Erich Fromm she takes notice in „Escape from Freedom” to new relations. Finally in the light of social constructivism the author focuses on the cultural context.

Avrasya su samurunun Türkiye’deki durumu ile ilgili yapılan ilk üç sempozyumun sonucuna göre Lutra lutra’nın Türkiye’nin her yerinde yayılış gösterdiği belirlenmiştir. Lutra lutra dere, çay, nehir, göl ve akarsuların denize döküldüğü yerlerde kaydedilmiştir. Yapılan dışkı analizlerine göre Avrasya su samurunun yayılış gösterdiği bölgelerde besin tercih oranlarının değişmesine karşın, genel olarak başta balık olmak üzere midye, tatlı su yengeci ve kerevit gibi omurgasız hayvanlar ile iki yaşamlı, sürüngen, küçük yapılı kuş ve memeli gibi omurgalı türlerini besin olarak tercih etmektedir. Su samurunu tehdit eden başlıca faktörler arasında yaşam alanının tahrip edilmesi, araç çarpması, çevre kirliliği, pestisit, çiftlik sahipleri tarafından balık havuzlarını koruma amaçlı öldürme ve kısmen avcılık gelmektedir. Lutra lutra’nın uluslararası koruma statüsü 2000’li yılların başında IUCN kriterlerine göre “Vulnerable” iken, 2004’den bu yana “Near Threatened” olarak değişmiştir. Türkiye’de de bu tür “Near Threatened” kategorisinde yer almaktadır. Türkiye’nin değişik bölgelerinde rastlanan su samuruna yönelik tehditlerin boyutlarına göre koruma önlemleri alınabilir. Bunun için su samurunun yaşam alanlarının ve ekolojik tercihlerinin tam olarak bilinmesi gerekmektedir.

    Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate L-J (Lo"wenstein-Jensen) medium culture, MGIT 960 culture anddifferent specimen types in diagnosis of BJTB (bone and joint tuberculosis). Methods:: Specimens of pus, caseous necrosis,tuberculous granuloma and sequestrum were collected from 52 BJTB patients. All specimens were cultured using both MGIT 960system and L-J medium; and all pus were amplified using real-time PCR to detect the presence of M. tuberculosis DNA. KeyFindings: A total of 191 specimens were collected. Granuloma had better chance to produce positive outcomes by L-J mediumculture, while for sequestrum MGIT 960 culture had higher yield, but there was no significant difference in the recovery rates amongdifferent types of specimen either by L-J culture (Z2 = 0.638, P = 0.888) or by MGIT960 culture (Z2 = 1.399, P = 0.706). MGIT960culture had significantly higher recovery rate than L-J culture, With a combined culture and PCR-based test, the recovery rate of pusspecimen was significantly higher than that of either method alone (P 〈 0.05). Conclusion: MGIT 960 culture is superior to L-Jculture in BJTB diagnosis; pus, sequestrum, granuloma and caseous necrosis are usable specimen for mycobacterial culture;combination of culture and molecular techniques can provide a better diagnostic significance.

    Tuberculosis (TB) is the most common cause of death due to a single infectious agent worldwide in adults. India alone accounts for 30% of the global tuberculosis burden. There is a need for a method of cultivation of mycobacteria that is reliable and economical and has a short turnaround time. The present study was attempted to assess the feasibility of using MB BACT and Middlebrook 7h10(MB7H10) as primary isolation media for mycobacteria. They were compared with the LJ medium, which was the gold standard. Various clinical specimens from a total of 236 clinically suspected cases of TB were studied. All the samples were decontaminated by using the modified Petroff's method. Each sample was subjected to ZN staining and it was simultaneously inoculated onto the LJ medium, the MB7H10 medium and MB BACT. The growth from the cultures were confirmed by ZN staining and they were speciated by using biochemical reactions. Out of the 236 samples which were screened, 116 isolates were obtained. All the 116 were isolated from MB BACT, 82 were isolated from the LJ medium and 62 were isolated from MB7H10. 82 isolates were obtained from MB BACT and the LJ medium, 62 were obtained from MB7H10 and MB BACT, 58 were isolated from LJ and MB7H10 and 58 were isolated from LJ medium, MB7H10 and MB bact. Neither the L J medium nor the Middlebrook 7h 10 medium could isolate mycobacteria exclusively. It showed that the combination of media did not prove to be superior over the use of MB BACT alone. The average isolation time of L J, the MB7H10 medium and MB BACT was 30.81 days, 31.06 days and 18.70 days. MB BACT is a better medium as compared to the L J medium and the MB7H10 medium, both in terms of the number of isolates and the isolation rate. The MB BACT method proved to be a very speedy method and it could isolate mycobacteria 7-10 days earlier as compared to the L J medium and the Middlebrook 7 H10 medium.

  8. The gene structure of the Drosophila melanogaster proto-oncogene, kayak, and its nested gene, fos-intronic gene.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hudson, Stephanie Gidget; Goldstein, Elliott S

    2008-08-15

    We present herein a new model for the structure of the Drosophila kayak gene as well as preliminary data on the functional differences of its various isoforms. kayak is a homolog of the human proto-oncogene, c-fos. kayak has three different starts of transcription, and therefore promoters (P)kay-alpha, (P)kay-beta and (P)kay-gamma. These three promoters lead to four different transcripts: kay-alpha, kay(sro), kay-beta and kay-gamma. (P)kay-alpha produces two different transcripts: kay-alpha and kay(sro) where the other two promoters, (P)kay-beta and (P)kay-gamma, produce a single transcript each. The transcripts kay-alpha, beta and gamma all splice into the mainbody of the kay gene, which codes for the DNA binding domain and leucine zipper; kay(sro) is not spliced. Also, within this region is a nested gene, fos-intronic gene (fig) which is transcribed in the opposite direction. fig codes for a predicted PP2C phosphatase. fig has two different promoters which produce two different transcripts, both in the same reading frame, fig-alpha and beta. This is an unusual gene structure for Drosophila. Only 13% of Drosophila genes have multiple promoters and only 7% have a nested gene. RT-PCR was performed on each transcript to determine the relative amounts of each RNA produced. All spliced kay transcripts appear to have equal abundance. The unspliced kay(sro) transcript has a lower abundance than kay-alpha. Both fig transcripts are also detected in all stages tested. Lethal phase analysis and complementation testing suggest that the three isoforms of kayak may have different functions.

    Nowadays the problem of design of durable ecologically friendly superhydrophobic surfaces is of great importance for science and technology. A recent paper in Applied Surface Science reports the method of fabricating the superhydrophobic metallic surfaces by infrared nanosecond laser surface texturing without using hydrophobic agents. Since this method of surface texturing can be considered as one of the most suitable for various industrial applications, the nature of superhydrophobic state of surfaces produced by laser texturing in the abovementioned paper deserves to be analyzed in detail. Authors of the commented paper attributed the change in wettability to the partial deoxidation of CuO into Cu2O on the surface during storage in atmosphere. However, such interpretation of the results contradicts to the basic notions in the theory of wetting and to more accurate and detailed data. In our Comment we discuss these contradictions point by point.

    Full Text Available Poetry takes the most important place in literature. It is very important both for the poet and the poetry reader to have the knowledge of poetry and know the poetical terms and rules. That’s why, especially in the books for school children, it is possible to come across information on poetry. However, in these books which are written to give language and literature education to children, it is observed that instead of giving detailed information, short and practical information is prefered.The periodical number 2727 in the National Library is also a verse dictionary periodical including 3 of the verse dictionaries (Sübha-i Sıbyân, Tuhfe-i Şâhidî, Tuhfe-i Vehbî written for the primary school children to teach them the prosodic rules together with the Arabic and Persian words. However, in this periodical, there are short literary works apart from these verse dictionaries. One of these works is the “Prosody Pamphlet”. As it is known, pamphlets are short texts written on any subject. This pamphlet is, too, a short literary work giving information about the measure of prosody, Classical Turkish Literature verse forms and types together with figures of speech. It also exemplifies them. In this literary work, it is observed that, besides some known literary information, some literary terms are explained in a different way that we are not familiar with. Therefore, this pamphlet is of great importance. When it is considered that periodicals are not mostly compiled as books, the introduction of this type of short texts in the periodicals to the world of science can be possible by means of articles. Thus, this study aims at examining and transcribing the aforementioned pamphlet text so that researchers can benefit from it. Şiir, edebiyat içerisinde en önemli yeri teşkil eder.

Ancak bu mecmuada bu manzum sözlüklerin dışında başka küçük eserler de vardır ki bunlardan biri de “Aruz Risalesi”dir. Bilindiği üzere risaleler, herhangi bir konuda yazılmış olan kısa metinlerdir. Bu risale de aruz ölçüsü, Klasik Türk Edebiyatı nazım şekilleri ve türleri ayrıca söz sanatları üzerine bilgiler veren ve bunları örneklendiren kısa bir eserdir. Bu eserde bilinen birtakım edebî bilgilerin yanı sıra bazı edebiyat terimlerinin, bugün bilinenden farklı şekilde anlatıldığı görülmektedir. Risale bu nedenle önem arz etmektedir. Mecmuaların çoğunlukla bir bütün halinde kitaplaştırılmadığı düşünüldüğünde mecmualar içerisindeki bu tür küçük metinlerin ilim dünyasına takdimi daha çok makaleler aracılığıyla olmaktadır. İşte bu çalışma da adı geçen risale metninin incelenip transkribe edilmesini ve bu şekilde araştırmacıların istifadesine sunulmasını amaçlamaktadır.

    Sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is associated with an aggressive biology and a poor prognosis. Poor-risk RCC is defined by clinical prognostic factors and demonstrates similarly aggressive behavior. No standard treatment exists for patients with sarcomatoid RCC, and treatment options for patients with poor-risk disease are of limited benefit. The objective of this study was to investigate the efficacy of antiangiogenic therapy in combination with cytotoxic chemotherapy in clinically aggressive RCC. This was a phase 2, single-arm trial of sunitinib and gemcitabine in patients with sarcomatoid or poor-risk RCC. The primary end point was the objective response rate (ORR). Secondary end points included the time to progression (TTP), overall survival (OS), safety, and biomarker correlatives. Overall, 39 patients had sarcomatoid RCC, and 33 had poor-risk RCC. The ORR was 26% for patients with sarcomatoid RCC and 24% for patients with poor-risk RCC. The median TTP and OS for patients with sarcomatoid RCC were 5 and 10 months, respectively. For patients with poor-risk disease, the median TTP and OS were 5.5 and 15 months, respectively. Patients whose tumors had>10% sarcomatoid histology had a higher clinical benefit rate (ORR plus stable disease) than those with≤10% sarcomatoid histology (P = 0.04). The most common grade 3 or higher treatment-related adverse events included neutropenia (n = 20), anemia (n = 10), and fatigue (n = 7). These results suggest that antiangiogenic therapy and cytotoxic chemotherapy are an active and well-tolerated combination for patients with aggressive RCC. The combination may be more efficacious than either therapy alone and is currently under further investigation. Copyright © 2017. Published by Elsevier Inc.

  4. KAYAK-α modulates circadian transcriptional feedback loops in Drosophila pacemaker neurons.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ling, Jinli; Dubruille, Raphaëlle; Emery, Patrick

    2012-11-21

    Circadian rhythms are generated by well-conserved interlocked transcriptional feedback loops in animals. In Drosophila, the dimeric transcription factor CLOCK/CYCLE (CLK/CYC) promotes period (per), timeless (tim), vrille (vri), and PAR-domain protein 1 (Pdp1) transcription. PER and TIM negatively feed back on CLK/CYC transcriptional activity, whereas VRI and PDP1 negatively and positively regulate Clk transcription, respectively. Here, we show that the α isoform of the Drosophila FOS homolog KAYAK (KAY) is required for normal circadian behavior. KAY-α downregulation in circadian pacemaker neurons increases period length by 1.5 h. This behavioral phenotype is correlated with decreased expression of several circadian proteins. The strongest effects are on CLK and the neuropeptide PIGMENT DISPERSING FACTOR, which are both under VRI and PDP1 control. Consistently, KAY-α can bind to VRI and inhibit its interaction with the Clk promoter. Interestingly, KAY-α can also repress CLK activity. Hence, in flies with low KAY-α levels, CLK derepression would partially compensate for increased VRI repression, thus attenuating the consequences of KAY-α downregulation on CLK targets. We propose that the double role of KAY-α in the two transcriptional loops controlling Drosophila circadian behavior brings precision and stability to their oscillations.

    Film Karla Rittera G.P.U. (1942.) jedan je od poznatijih njemačkih filmova nastalih u vrijeme nacističke vladavine. Sa svojom antisovjetskom porukom, trebao je ostvariti propagandnu zadaću kako u Njemačkoj, tako i u drugim, Njemačkoj naklonjenim, zemljama. Njegovo je prikazivanje u Nezavisnoj Državi Hrvatskoj obilježeno velikim odazivom publike, koja je, smatralo se, izvrsno reagirala na propagandne poticaje onih koji su za to bili zaduženi.

  8. The ethics of the Texas death penalty and its impact on a prolonged appeals process.

    Science.gov (United States)

    1998-01-01

    Society remains sharply divided as to the deterrent value of capital punishment. Following the reintroduction of the death penalty in the United States, Texas law mandates the affirmative predictability of future dangerousness beyond a reasonable doubt before a jury can impose the ultimate penalty for capital murder. The validity of prediction of dangerousness has been challenged in three Texas landmark cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. The case of Karla Faye Tucker highlights the moral controversy that occurs when execution follows an appeals process stretching over more than a decade, during which time personality growth and the effects of prison rehabilitation may have eliminated or curbed criminal tendencies.

  7. Does optimal partitioning of color space account for universal color categorization?

    Science.gov (United States)

    2017-01-01

    A 2007 study by Regier, Kay, and Khetarpal purports to show that universal categories emerge as a result of optimal partitioning of color space. Regier, Kay, and Khetarpal only consider color categorizations of up to six categories. However, in most industrialized societies eleven color categories are observed. This paper shows that when applied to the case of eleven categories, Regier, Kay, and Khetarpal’s optimality criterion yields unsatisfactory results. Applications of the criterion to the intermediate cases of seven, eight, nine, and ten color categories are also briefly considered and are shown to yield mixed results. We consider a number of possible explanations of the failure of the criterion in the case of eleven categories, and suggest that, as color categorizations get more complex, further criteria come to play a role, alongside Regier, Kay, and Khetarpal’s optimality criterion.

A research agenda for studying situated practices of mobility and mobilities design is outlined in three directions: foci of studies, methods and approaches, and epistemologies and frames of thinking. Jensen begins...... with a brief description of how movement is studied within social sciences after the “mobilities turn” versus the idea of physical movement in transport geography and engineering. He then explains how “mobilities design” was derived from connections between traffic and architecture. Jensen concludes......In this chapter, Ole B. Jensen takes a situational approach to mobilities to examine how ordinary life activities are structured by technology and design. Using “staging mobilities” as a theoretical approach, Jensen considers mobilities as overlapping, actions, interactions and decisions...

  15. Gradiva: freud, fetishism, and Pompeian Fantasy.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Fletcher, John

    2013-10-01

    This paper is a critical reconsideration of Freud's analysis (1907) of Wilhelm Jensen's novella Gradiva: A Pompeian Fantasy (1903). Freud's interest was aroused by the parallels between Jensen's presentation of dreams and Freud's model of dream formation just published in The Interpretation of Dreams (1900). Freud also acclaims Jensen's presentation of the formation and "cure" of his protagonist's delusion about a marble bas-relief of a woman walking. This paper argues for the centrality of the phenomenon of fetishism, briefly considered but excluded from Freud's analysis. The fantasy of Gradiva as "the necessary conditions for loving" (Freud 1910, pp. 165-166) is also a key thesis of the essay, which makes use of the newly translated Freud-Jensen correspondence contained in this article's Appendix. © 2013 The Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Inc.

  14. Phylogenetic and genomewide analyses suggest a functional relationship between kayak, the Drosophila fos homolog, and fig, a predicted protein phosphatase 2c nested within a kayak intron.

    2007-11-01

    A gene located within the intron of a larger gene is an uncommon arrangement in any species. Few of these nested gene arrangements have been explored from an evolutionary perspective. Here we report a phylogenetic analysis of kayak (kay) and fos intron gene (fig), a divergently transcribed gene located in a kay intron, utilizing 12 Drosophila species. The evolutionary relationship between these genes is of interest because kay is the homolog of the proto-oncogene c-fos whose function is modulated by serine/threonine phosphorylation and fig is a predicted PP2C phosphatase specific for serine/threonine residues. We found that, despite an extraordinary level of diversification in the intron-exon structure of kay (11 inversions and six independent exon losses), the nested arrangement of kay and fig is conserved in all species. A genomewide analysis of protein-coding nested gene pairs revealed that approximately 20% of nested pairs in D. melanogaster are also nested in D. pseudoobscura and D. virilis. A phylogenetic examination of fig revealed that there are three subfamilies of PP2C phosphatases in all 12 species of Drosophila. Overall, our phylogenetic and genomewide analyses suggest that the nested arrangement of kay and fig may be due to a functional relationship between them.

  15. Differential expression of the two Drosophila fos/kayak transcripts during oogenesis and embryogenesis.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Souid, Sami; Yanicostas, Constantin

    2003-05-01

    The Dfos/kayak gene encodes a bZIP protein, DFos, required in a large variety of differentiation and morphogenetic processes throughout Drosophila development. The recent availability of an expressed sequence tag (EST) sequence led us to identify a novel kay mRNA encoding a deduced DFos isoform showing a specific NH(2)-terminal region. To gain further insight into the function and the regulation of this gene, we have investigated the expression pattern of the two kay mRNA isoforms, kay-RA and kay-RB, during oogenesis and embryogenesis by whole-mount in situ hybridization. Results show that, although the two kay RNA isoforms display fully distinct patterns of transcription during oogenesis, they show partially overlapping expression profiles in embryos. These data reveal a previously unsuspected level of complexity in the regulation of the expression of the kay gene. In addition, they suggest a possible requirement for this gene in the invagination processes during early gastrula stages.

    An integrated modeling system, developed in the framework of "Hydromentor" research project, is applied to evaluate crop water requirements for operational water resources management at Lake Karla watershed, Greece. The framework includes coupled components for operation of hydrotechnical projects (reservoir operation and irrigation works) and estimation of agricultural water demands at several spatial scales using remote sensing. The study area was sub-divided into irrigation zones based on land use maps derived from Landsat 5 TM images for the year 2007. Satellite-based energy balance for mapping evapotranspiration with internalized calibration (METRIC) was used to derive actual evapotranspiration (ET) and crop coefficient (ETrF) values from Landsat TM imagery. Agricultural water needs were estimated using the FAO method for each zone and each control node of the system for a number of water resources management strategies. Two operational strategies of hydro-technical project development (present situation without operation of the reservoir and future situation with the operation of the reservoir) are coupled with three water demand strategies. In total, eight (8) water management strategies are evaluated and compared. The results show that, under the existing operational water resources management strategies, the crop water requirements are quite large. However, the operation of the proposed hydro-technical projects in Lake Karla watershed coupled with water demand management measures, like improvement of existing water distribution systems, change of irrigation methods, and changes of crop cultivation could alleviate the problem and lead to sustainable and ecological use of water resources in the study area.

    This study examined trace metal levels in scalp hair taken from 122 children and 27 adult residents of three small northern Alberta (Canada) Indian villages, one of which is situated close to the world's first tar sands oil extraction plants. The three communities studied were: Fort McKay (the exposed village), Fort Chipewyan (also in the tar sands ecosystem but distant from the plants), and Garden River (not in the tar sands ecosystem). Inductively coupled argon plasma emission spectroscopy was used to determine hair sample metal content. Nineteen metals were included in data analysis. Children from Fort McKay had the highest average hair lead, cadmium and nickel levels. Chromium levels were approximately equal in hair from Fort McKay and Garden River children, and significantly elevated above levels found in the hair of Fort Chipewyan children. Children from Garden River showed highest hair levels of eight metals: vanadium, aluminum, iron, manganese, barium, zinc, magnesium and calcium. Fort Chipewyan children had the highest hair levels of copper, but the lowest levels of all other metals. Among adults, hair lead, nickel and cadmium levels were highest in Fort McKay residents, while phosphorous and vanadium were highest in hair from Garden River residents. Bioaccumulation of lead, cadmium, nickel and chromium in hair from Fort McKay residents may be related to exposure to extraction plant pollution. Plant stack emissions are known to contain appreciable amounts of lead, nickel and chromium. Spills into the Athabasca River, until recently the source of Fort McKay drinking water, have been reported from plant wastewater holding ponds, known to contain elevated levels of lead, nickel and cadmium. An increased number of significant metal-metal correlations in hair metal levels for Fort McKay children suggests a richer source of multiple metal exposure, relative to children in the other two communities.

    The overall objective of this work is the development of a District Information System (DIS) which could be used by stakeholders for the purposes of a district day-to-day water management as well as for planning and strategic decisionmaking. The DIS was developed from a GIS-based modeling approach, which integrates a generic crop model and a hydraulic model of the transport/distribution system, using land use maps generated by Landsat TM imagery. The main sub-objectives are: (i) the development of an operational algorithm to retrieve crop evapotranspiration from remote sensing data, (ii) the development of an information system with friendly user interface for the data base, the crop module and the hydraulic module and (iii) the analysis and validation of management scenarios from model simulations predicting the respective behavior. The Lake Karla watershed is used in this study, but the overall methodology could be used as a basis for future analysis elsewhere. Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land (SEBAL) was used to derive monthly actual evapotranspiration (ET) values from Landsat TM imagery. Meteorological data from the archives of the Institute for Research and Technology, Thessaly (I.RE.TE.TH) has also been used. The methodology was developed using high quality Landsat TM images during 2007 growing season. Monthly ET values are used as an input to CROPWAT model. Outputs of CROPWAT model are then used as input for WEAP model. The developed scenario is based on the actual situation of the surface irrigation network of the Local Administration of Land Reclamation (LALR) of Pinios for the year of 2007. The DIS is calibrated with observed data of this year and the district parameterization is conducted based on the actual operation of the network. The operation of the surface irrigation network of Pinios LALR is simulated using Technologismiki Works, while the operation of closed pipe irrigation network of Lake Karla LALR is simulated using Watercad.

  19. The role of binocular stereopsis in monoptic depth perception.

    In his study of depth from monocular elements, Kaye (1978) [Kaye, M. (1978). Stereopsis without binocular correlation. Vision Research, 18(8), 1013-1022] reported that monocular stimuli, briefly presented to one eye in a stereoscopic display, generated reliable depth percepts. Here we replicate and extend Kaye's findings in an effort to identify the mechanism underlying the phenomenon. Our experiments show that the perception of depth is not a simple result of monocular local sign, for the percept of depth disappears when one eye is patched. In subsequent experiments we assess the possibility that the percept results from a very coarse stereoscopic match to either the centroid of the luminance distribution in the unstimulated eye or a simple match to the line of sight in the unstimulated eye. Our results consistently support the match-to-fovea account, and lead us to conclude that monoptic depth is a stereoscopic phenomenon.

    2010-01-01

    We study the centroid with respect to the class of information-theoretic distortion measures called Burbea-Rao divergences. Burbea-Rao divergences generalize the Jensen-Shannon divergence by measuring the non-negative Jensen difference induced by a strictly convex and differentiable function expressing a measure of entropy. We first show that a symmetrization of Bregman divergences called Jensen-Bregman distances yields a natural definition of Burbea-Rao divergences. We then define skew Burbea-Rao divergences, and prove that skew Burbea-Rao divergences amount to compute Bregman divergences in asymptotical cases. We prove that Burbea-Rao centroids are always unique, and we design a generic iterative algorithm for efficiently estimating those centroids with guaranteed convergence. In statistics, the Bhattacharyya distance is widely used to measure the degree of overlap of probability distributions. This distance notion is all the more useful as it provides both upper and lower bounds on Bayes misclassification ...

    Gastropods are described from Ludlow-age strata of the Heceta Limestone on Prince of Wales Island, southeast Alaska. They are part of a diverse megabenthic fauna of the Alexander terrane, an accreted terrane of Siberian or Uralian affinities. Heceta Limestone gastropods with Uralian affinities include Kirkospira glacialis, which closely resembles "Pleurotomaria" lindstromi Oehlert of Chernyshev, 1893, Retispira cf. R. volgulica (Chernyshev, 1893), and Medfracaulus turriformis (Chernyshev, 1893). Medfracaulus and similar morphotypes such as Coelocaulus karlae are unknown from rocks that are unquestionably part of the North American continent (Laurentia) during Late Silurian time. Beraunia is previously known only from the Silurian of Bohemia. Pachystrophia has previously been reported only from western North American terranes (Eastern Klamath, York, and Farewell terranes) and Europe. Bathmopterus Kirk, 1928, is resurrected and is only known from the Silurian of southeast Alaska. Newly described taxa include Hecetastoma gehrelsi n. gen. and n. sp. and Baichtalia tongassensis n. gen. and n. sp. ??2008 The Geological Society of America.

    In a recent paper, Kaye and Wong proved the following result, which they considered to belong to the folklore of mathematical logic. THEOREM: The first-order theories of Peano arithmetic and ZF with the axiom of infinity negated are mutually interpretable with interpretations that are inverse to each other. In this note, I describe a theory of sets that stands in the same relation to the bounded arithmetic IDelta0 + exp. Because of the weakness of this theory of sets, I cannot straightforwardly adapt Kaye and Wong's interpretation of the arithmetic in the set theory. Instead, I am forced to produce a different interpretation.

  13. The Meeting with Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy: A Case Study of Syncretism in the Hmong System of Beliefs

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Kao-Ly Yang

    2007-01-01

    Full Text Available The purpose of this case study is to shed light on the identity of the spirit of fertility called Lady Kaying –Niam Nkauj Kab Yeeb—, its religious origin and the general processes of borrowing her fromother cultures within the Hmong culture. Hmong popular beliefs pertaining to Kaying reveal that Kaying is in fact the Chinese Goddess of Mercy Guanyin. She was imported from MahayanaBuddhism by the Hmong people of China who had retained her roles of the “Bestower of Children", the “Guardian Angel” or the "Conductor of the Dead Children". An analysis of the process of borrowing of the Chinese deity into the Hmong pantheon shows that Lady Kaying overlaps with an ancient spirit, the “Ancestor Spirit of Fertility” or Niam Poj Dab Pog. This case study demonstrates that the processes of borrowing are selective, integrative and comprehensive: some traits or fragments were taken from Buddhism and incorporated into the Hmong beliefs through a superimposing of a Hmong pre-existing system of beliefs.

  1. Tables of physical and chemical constants

    Kaye, George William C

    "It is now over ninety years since the first edition of Kaye and Laby's tables was published. Over that period a further fifteen editions were published at, roughly, five- to ten-year intervals. Following the launch of the sixteenth edition, the Editorial Board considered how the next edition should be prepared and what form it should take; should we propose a pocket version or a CD-ROM-based edition? We also explored publishing Kaye and Laby as a web-site. Above all, we felt, and our contributors agreed, that the tables were still extremely useful and that the tradition started by Kaye and Laby should be maintained. Our hope was that a paper version and a web-site could be launched together. However our publisher decided, for policy reasons, that he was not able to support the next edition of the book. The contract with the Editorial Board stipulated that, when the stocks of the sixteenth edition were exhausted, ownership of the rights to Kaye and Laby should pass to the Board.
