    Resultados: No teste de DMF não se verificaram diferenças estatisticamente significativas (t(20=1.23, p=0.233 entre as mãos; porém, no teste de DMG a diferença entre as mãos alcançou significado estatístico (t(20=3.128, p=0,005, sendo a mão não preferida (145.22±53.42 seg. mais rápida do que a mão preferida (156.16±59.99 seg.. O Índice de Assimetria Manual para cada uma das tarefas foi calculado, porém, não revelou significado estatístico (t(20=-1.003, p=0.328. Conclusão: A melhor proficiência com a mão não preferida na tarefa de DMG pode estar relacionada com características peculiares para esta população, como as dificuldades na motricidade seletiva, o que empobreceria o desempenho para ambas as mãos, ou ainda com outros fatores a serem investigados. Os dados sugerem que tarefas de DMF e DMG desempenhadas por pessoas com T21 não são influenciadas pela preferência manual.

    Full Text Available Resumo A preferência manual (direção e magnitude na tarefa de alcançar em adultos foi analisada em função da localização espacial de um objeto no ambiente. Trinta participantes fizeram a tarefa de alcançar um cilindro, devendo-se escolher apenas uma das mãos para fazer a tarefa, a 50 cm de distância em cinco posições diferentes em relação ao plano sagital do participante. Duas condições foram cumpridas: conforto (sem restrição da velocidade e velocidade (movimento feito o mais rapidamente possível. Anova de Friedman apontou diferença (X230,9 = 122,17; p < 0,001 e o teste de Wilcoxon apontou maiores escores nas posições de 90°, 120° e 150° em comparação com 30° e 60° para ambas as condições (p < 0,01 demonstrando alcances ipsilaterais. Tais resultados foram explicados pela restrição biomecânica para fazer a tarefa, modulando a preferência manual, de acordo com a localização espacial dos objetos no ambiente.

    Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) is a memory architecture for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) systems where each processor is directly connected to separate memory. Indirect access to other CPU's (remote) RAM is still possible, but such requests are slower as they must also pass through that memory's controlling CPU. In concert with a NUMA-aware operating system, the NUMA hardware architecture can help eliminate the memory performance reductions generally seen in SMP systems when multiple processors simultaneously attempt to access memory. The x86 CPU architecture has supported NUMA for a number of years. Modern operating systems such as Linux support NUMA-aware scheduling, where the OS attempts to schedule a process to the CPU directly attached to the majority of its RAM. In Linux, it is possible to further manually tune the NUMA subsystem using the numactl utility. With the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6.3, the numad daemon became available in this distribution. This daemon monitors a system's NUMA topology and utilization, and automatically makes adjustments to optimize locality. As the number of cores in x86 servers continues to grow, efficient NUMA mappings of processes to CPUs/memory will become increasingly important. This paper gives a brief overview of NUMA, and discusses the effects of manual tunings and numad on the performance of the HEPSPEC06 benchmark, and ATLAS software.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente estudo foi investigar os efeitos de autocontrolar a sequência de movimentos, na aprendizagem de uma tarefa de “timing” coincidente. Trinta adultos jovens (idade = 23 ± 5,5 anos sem experiência prévia na tarefa foram distribuídos aleatoriamente em dois grupos com condições diferentes quanto a sequência de movimentos, autocontrolado (LIVRE e externamente controlado (DET. Os participantes deveriam tocar seis sensores sequencialmente, o último coincidentemente à chegada de um estímulo visual (tarefa de “timing”. Na aquisição, os participantes do grupo DET deveriam tocar os sensores numa sequência determinada, enquanto os do grupo LIVRE poderiam tocar os sensores em qualquer ordem (exceto o último, que foi o mesmo para ambos os grupos. Apesar de nenhuma diferença ter sido encontrada em relação ao número de tentativas necessárias ao alcance do desempenho critério na aquisição, o grupo LIVRE apresentou pior desempenho na transferência comparado ao grupo DET, indicando que ter controle sobre a sequência de movimentos que precede a coincidência prejudica a aprendizagem da habilidade.

    Highlights: • Seven NuMA isoforms generated by alternative splicing were categorized into 3 groups: long, middle and short. • Both exons 15 and 16 in long NuMA were “hotspot” for alternative splicing. • Lower expression of short NuMA was observed in cancer cells compared with nonneoplastic controls. • Distinct localization pattern of short isoforms indicated different function from that of long and middle NuMA. - Abstract: The large nuclear mitotic apparatus (NuMA) has been investigated for over 30 years with functions related to the formation and maintenance of mitotic spindle poles during mitosis. However, the existence and functions of NuMA isoforms generated by alternative splicing remains unclear. In the present work, we show that at least seven NuMA isoforms (categorized into long, middle and short groups) generated by alternative splicing from a common NuMA mRNA precursor were discovered in HeLa cells and these isoforms differ mainly at the carboxyl terminus and the coiled-coil domains. Two “hotspot” exons with molecular mass of 3366-nt and 42-nt tend to be spliced during alternative splicing in long and middle groups. Furthermore, full-length coding sequences of long and middle NuMA obtained by using fusion PCR were constructed into GFP-tagged vector to illustrate their cellular localization. Long NuMA mainly localized in the nucleus with absence from nucleoli during interphase and translocated to the spindle poles in mitosis. Middle NuMA displayed the similar cell cycle-dependent distribution pattern as long NuMA. However, expression of NuMA short isoforms revealed a distinct subcellular localization. Short NuMA were present in the cytosol during the whole cycle, without colocalization with mitotic apparatus. These results have allowed us tentatively to explore a new research direction for NuMA’s various functions.

    Full Text Available The Numa Numa Dance and Gangnam Style: musical videos on youtube in multiple mediation – This paper examines the videos The Numa Numa Dance – a 2004 amateur video uploaded by Gary Brolsma and taken as a precursor of viral musical videoclips, and Gangnam Style, by Dj Psy – the official music video of a k-pop song and the most frequently watched videoclip in the history of YouTube, and discusses the mediation process whereby these videos circulate on YouTube from a comparative perspective. The core premise is that The Numa Numa Dance is the precursor of a category of music videos that later help us understand the success of Gangnam Style, and that they both fall within the same socio- technical network that links amateur and professional people, cultural industry and common users. Once they are mapped, these networks reveal important aspects of contemporary musical culture circulating through digital media.

  12. Extending OpenMP for NUMA Machines

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    John Bircsak

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available This paper describes extensions to OpenMP that implement data placement features needed for NUMA architectures. OpenMP is a collection of compiler directives and library routines used to write portable parallel programs for shared-memory architectures. Writing efficient parallel programs for NUMA architectures, which have characteristics of both shared-memory and distributed-memory architectures, requires that a programmer control the placement of data in memory and the placement of computations that operate on that data. Optimal performance is obtained when computations occur on processors that have fast access to the data needed by those computations. OpenMP -- designed for shared-memory architectures -- does not by itself address these issues. The extensions to OpenMP Fortran presented here have been mainly taken from High Performance Fortran. The paper describes some of the techniques that the Compaq Fortran compiler uses to generate efficient code based on these extensions. It also describes some additional compiler optimizations, and concludes with some preliminary results.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background A recent genome wide case-control association study identified NuMA region on 11q13 as a candidate locus for breast cancer susceptibility. Specifically, the variant Ala794Gly was suggested to be associated with increased risk of breast cancer. Methods In order to evaluate the NuMa gene for breast cancer susceptibility, we have here screened the entire coding region and exon-intron boundaries of NuMa in 92 familial breast cancer patients and constructed haplotypes of the identified variants. Five missense variants were further screened in 341 breast cancer cases with a positive family history and 368 controls. We examined the frequency of Ala794Gly in an extensive series of familial (n = 910 and unselected (n = 884 breast cancer cases and controls (n = 906, with a high power to detect the suggested breast cancer risk. We also tested if the variant is associated with histopathologic features of breast tumors. Results Screening of NuMA resulted in identification of 11 exonic variants and 12 variants in introns or untranslated regions. Five missense variants that were further screened in breast cancer cases with a positive family history and controls, were each carried on a unique haplotype. None of the variants, or the haplotypes represented by them, was associated with breast cancer risk although due to low power in this analysis, very low risk alleles may go unrecognized. The NuMA Ala794Gly showed no difference in frequency in the unselected breast cancer case series or familial case series compared to control cases. Furthermore, Ala794Gly did not show any significant association with histopathologic characteristics of the tumors, though Ala794Gly was slightly more frequent among unselected cases with lymph node involvement. Conclusion Our results do not support the role of NuMA variants as breast cancer susceptibility alleles.

    2009-09-01

    Full Text Available A literatura sobre o processo de envelhecimento tem sistematicamente demonstrado a diferença de desempenho entre populações jovens e idosas. Em geral, os delineamentos de pesquisa envolvem indivíduos de 60 e até mesmo de 90 anos de idade, enquanto o grupo de jovens é representado por indivíduos em torno de 20 anos de idade. Esse procedimento pode ocultar mudanças de desenvolvimento que talvez influencie a interpretação dos resultados. Assim, o objetivo desse estudo foi examinar o efeito da idade cronológica no desempenho de uma habilidade motora. Foi utilizado um aparelho que possibilitou a execução de uma tarefa de posicionamento linear combinada ao controle de força. Os participantes receberam conhecimento de resultados verbal após a execução de 10 tentativas sobre o objetivo de atingir 20% da força máxima e o deslocamento de 35 cm. O desempenho foi medido pelo erro absoluto. A amostra contou com 150 participantes de 60 a 86 anos de idade, que realizaram as tentativas com a mão não-dominante e vendados. Os participantes foram divididos em três grupos etários (60, 70, 80 anos e o desempenho também foi comparado a um grupo jovem (21 a 30 anos de idade. Houve correlação baixa, mas significante entre idade e controle de distância. Não houve diferença significante entre os grupos (exceto G20 e G80. Apesar da observação empírica dos instrutores sobre a diferença no desempenho motor de idosos de diferentes faixas etárias, o presente estudo não mostrou tais diferenças no desempenho dessa tarefa em particular. Talvez, considerando que os participantes eram fisicamente ativos, possíveis diferenças de desempenho relativas ao processo de envelhecimento, possam ter sido sobrepostas pelo estilo de vida ativo.Motor behavior literature about aging process has systematically shown differences in performance between young and old populations.

    Full Text Available O presente texto tem como proposta responder ao seguinte questionamento: qual a função do intelectual, denúncia ou combate? O que nos diz Florestan Fernandes sobre o papel do intelectual? Para correspondermos ao objetivo do texto, debatemos sobre as tarefas dos intelectuais no processo de transformação e democratização da sociedade brasileira, a partir dos escritos de Florestan Fernandes. Foi possível perceber que Florestan Fernandes segue uma tradição teórico-política de esquerda que defende a unidade entre ciência (teoria e política (prática. Disso compreende-se que Florestan Fernandes considera que tanto a denúncia quanto o combate são tarefas complementares inerentes à conduta do intelectual, porém, fica evidente o peso atribuído por ele à iniciativa prática da luta política, ao combate. Para melhor apresentarmos a nossa análise e os resultados construídos pelo nosso estudo, organizamos o texto da seguinte forma: 1 apresentamos o debate sobre os intelectuais nos escritos de Karl Marx e Antonio Gramsci; 2 analisamos o papel do intelectual no processo de transformação social nos escritos de Florestan Fernandes; por fim, tecemos nossas conclusões.

    Highlights: •NuMA is modified by SUMO-1 in a cell cycle-dependent manner. •NuMA lysine 1766 is the primary target site for SUMOylation. •SUMOylation-deficient NuMA induces multiple spindle poles during mitosis. •SUMOylated NuMA induces microtubule bundling. -- Abstract: Covalent conjugation of proteins with small ubiquitin-like modifier 1 (SUMO-1) plays a critical role in a variety of cellular functions including cell cycle control, replication, and transcriptional regulation. Nuclear mitotic apparatus protein (NuMA) localizes to spindle poles during mitosis, and is an essential component in the formation and maintenance of mitotic spindle poles. Here we show that NuMA is a target for covalent conjugation to SUMO-1. We find that the lysine 1766 residue is the primary NuMA acceptor site for SUMO-1 conjugation. Interestingly, SUMO modification of endogenous NuMA occurs at the entry into mitosis and this modification is reversed after exiting from mitosis. Knockdown of Ubc9 or forced expression of SENP1 results in impairment of the localization of NuMA to mitotic spindle poles during mitosis. The SUMOylation-deficient NuMA mutant is defective in microtubule bundling, and multiple spindles are induced during mitosis. The mitosis-dependent dynamic SUMO-1 modification of NuMA might contribute to NuMA-mediated formation and maintenance of mitotic spindle poles during mitosis.

    Full Text Available RESUMO: a tarefa de casa (TC pode contribuir para a realização de aprendizagem significativa e para complementar e reforçar as atividades realizadas em sala de aula. Objetivou-se identificar e analisar como as TC estão sendo propostas para alunos com deficiência física (DF inseridos em classes de ensino comum, a partir da percepção de professoras e cuidadoras familiares. Participaram do estudo 15 professoras e 15 cuidadoras familiares de crianças com DF, inseridas em classes de ensino comum. Para a coleta de dados foram utilizados dois roteiros de entrevista semiestruturados, sendo um aplicado para as professoras e outro para as cuidadoras familiares. As verbalizações foram gravadas e transcritas na íntegra para posterior análise de conteúdo e categorização. Os resultados sugerem que o professor, em muitos casos, não adapta as TC para atender as demandas do aluno e, em outros, não oferece tarefa para o aluno com DF na mesma proporção que o faz para os demais alunos. Com relação às famílias, os resultados indicam que estas percebem as dificuldades da criança e, ao mesmo tempo, angustiam-se com a falta de comunicação com a escola nesse quesito, o que ocasiona questionamentos e dúvidas em relação ao desempenho do aluno. Os resultados deste estudo podem ser úteis no contexto da Educação Inclusiva, no sentido de a TC adquirir uma função particularmente interessante, pois, se bem gerenciada, pode funcionar como uma atividade mediadora da interlocução entre a escola e a família.

  5. A antropologia numa era de confusão

    Maybury-Lewis David

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available A Antropologia sempre procurou entender a natureza humana e as variedades da cultura humana. Esta tarefa ambiciosa enfrentou constantemente dificuldades teóricas e metodológicas. A teoria da evolução social foi apresentada como sendo preconceituosa e baseada em poucas evidências, inclusive com uma inferência racista em uma época de dominação européia. Os antídotos - rigoroso trabalho de campo inspirado no funcionalismo, estruturalismo ou culturalismo - eram também vistos como contaminados por hierarquias de uma ordem mundial colonialista. A atenção pós-moderna a este "orientalismo" em um mundo pós-colonial produziu textos no sentido de atentar os antropólogos para estas questões, o que acarretou um declínio na produção e no entendimento antropológico. Esta conferência considera estes dilemas, os correntes debates sobre "cultura" e "sobrevivência cultural" e como antropólogos deveriam proceder nesta nova era de confusão, produzida pela globalização e pelo aparecimento do Estado-nação.

Em circunstâncias normais, a realização concomitante de tarefas motoras e cognitivas é comum. OBJETIVO: O objetivo deste estudo foi analisar o desempenho de pacientes com Doença de Parkinson na realização de dupla tarefa motora-cognitiva. MÉTODO: Dois grupos foram estudados. Um grupo foi composto por 10 indivíduos saudáveis e o outro por 10 pacientes com diagnóstico de Doença de Parkinson, ambos com idades entre 47 e 75 anos, pareados em relação ao gênero e idade. Foi solicitado que vestissem uma camisa de botões o mais rapidamente possível de forma isolada (tarefa simples e enquanto verbalizavam nomes próprios femininos (dupla tarefa, em ordem aleatória. Cada tarefa foi repetida três vezes. O tempo de movimento e os erros cometidos foram analisados. RESULTADOS: Os pacientes levaram mais tempo para completar ambas as tarefas (p= 0,006 quando comparados aos indivíduos saudáveis. Ambos os grupos cometeram mais erros na dupla tarefa (p= 0,03. Houve uma redução no tempo de movimento com a repetição da tarefa (p= 0,039. CONCLUSÕES: Estes resultados sugerem que indivíduos com Doença de Parkinson apresentam um prejuízo no desempenho motor em relação ao grupo controle, no entanto, o custo para o desempenho desta tarefa independe da interferência motora-cogntiva e a possibilidade de melhora do desempenho com a prática é real.INTRODUCTION: A capacity to perform two tasks at the same time is a prerequisite for an individual to have a normal life.

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve como propósito examinar as perceções de uma professora de Educação Física e dos seus alunos em relação ao valor educativo do Modelo de Educação Desportiva, no desenvolvimento da competência motora, da literacia desportiva e do entusiasmo. O estudo foi aplicado numa unidade de Atletismo tendo participado uma professora com 19 anos de experiência em ensino e uma turma com 19 alunos do 6.º ano de escolaridade. No final da unidade foram realizadas entrevistas semiestruturadas a todos os participantes. O clima envolvente das tarefas de aprendizagem e o contexto de ensino autêntico e significativo foram percebidas como determinantes no desenvolvimento dos alunos enquanto desportistas competentes, literatos e entusiastas. A competência adquirida foi percebida como resultado do tempo mais longo concedido à unidade em relação às unidades mais tradicionais, bem como da autonomia crescente dos alunos na realização das tarefas, fruto do equilíbrio gerado entre inclusão e competição, o qual também promoveu a literacia desportiva. O entusiasmo resultou da interdependência das dinâmicas de trabalho cooperativo, da festividade fomentada pelo modelo/inerente/ implícita ao modelo e do clima motivacional gerado, com impacto substantivo no compromisso dos alunos para com a prática. Finalmente, a implementação do Modelo de Educação Desportiva ofereceu à docente um espaço de reflexão e desenvolvimento profissional.

    Full Text Available O sequenciamento de tarefas independentes de forma não preemptiva em sistemas de processadores uniformes, com o objetivo de minimizar o tempo total de execução (makespan, é o assunto do presente artigo. Considera-se um conjunto de n tarefas, onde cada tarefa possui um tempo de processamento, e um conjunto m > ou = 2 de processadores com velocidades de processamento sigma1 = 1£s2£sm. Sendo o problema de encontrar o mínimo makespan considerado NP-difícil, desenvolveu-se uma heurística de trocas poderosa para resolvê-lo. A heurística proposta é composta de três fases: alocação inicial, balanceamento de carga e fase de dupla troca. A principal característica desta nova heurística é a de prescindir de uma pré-ordenação das tarefas. A heurística desenvolvida foi comparada com um limitante inferior da solução ótima e também com outras três heurísticas apresentando um desempenho superior, encontrando a solução ótima em um grande número de casos as custas de um baixo esforço computacional.This paper examines the nonpreemptive assignment of independent jobs to a system of uniform processors with the objective of reducing makespan, or the time required from the start of execution until all jobs are completed. We consider a set of n jobs, each having an execution time and a set of m > or = 2 processors which are assumed to have different speeds (say sigma1 = 1£s2£sm. Since the problem of finding a minimal makespan has been show to be NP-hard, we develop a powerful interchange heuristic. The heuristic proposed is composed by three phases: initial assignment, job reassignment and job interchange. The main feature of this method is not perform a pre-classification of the tasks. Some comparison are made with other heuristic schemes and a lower bound that validates the results obtained. The heuristic achieve optimal solutions for several instances in a short computational time.

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available A tarefa de escrever sobre si é sempre subjetiva, pois o indivíduo não vive isoladamente. Faz parte de um contexto histórico e geográfico, por isso sua reflexão trará dados da sociedade a qual ele está inserido. As confusões internas para a construção da narrativa do “eu”, com a multiplicidade de “eus” que convivem dentro do sujeito, se veem ainda mais complexas com a posição desse “eu” frente às situações das influências dos povos que constituíram a nação pós-colonial, principalmente das situações políticas das relações históricas entre esses povos. Assim, se configura o contexto pós-colonial da atualidade, em que a história foi conduzida pela centralidade de certos sujeitos em detrimento de outros, que foram marginalizados, subalternizados, e que só estiveram em destaque na condição de representados por outrem. Essa representação, dos que estavam postos às margens, do considerado Outro, era realizada sem a voz ativa do sujeito na construção de sua própria representação. Além disso, esse Outro, aqui retratado como o ser negro, foi impelido a seguir o padrão cultural e imagético do que era posto como o universal, isto é, o branco europeu. Esse ambiente influenciou no desenvolvimento das identidades e na posição política adotada desse Outro, ocasionando em novas subjetividades e possibilidades de diálogos entre povos que passaram pela condição histórica de colonização, no caso o Brasil e o continente africano. Assim, a autobiografia do Outro acaba por trazer elementos do grupo o qual ele está integrado e que vive sob a mesma condição de marginalizado. Portanto, essa autobiografia é uma importante ferramenta para compreensão desse Outro, agora numa situação diferente, na recuperação da condição de sujeito de sua própria representação. Ocasionando, então, numa subjetividade da escrita que explora novos sentidos e traz novas interpretações para a compreensão da

  17. High Productivity Programming of Dense Linear Algebra on Heterogeneous NUMA Architectures

    KAUST Repository

    Alomairy, Rabab M.

    2013-07-01

    High-end multicore systems with GPU-based accelerators are now ubiquitous in the hardware landscape. Besides dealing with the nontrivial heterogeneous environ- ment, end users should often take into consideration the underlying memory architec- ture to decrease the overhead of data motion, especially when running on non-uniform memory access (NUMA) platforms. We propose the OmpSs parallel programming model approach using its Nanos++ dynamic runtime system to solve the two challeng- ing problems aforementioned, through 1) an innovative NUMA node-aware scheduling policy to reduce data movement between NUMA nodes and 2) a nested parallelism feature to concurrently exploit the resources available from the GPU devices as well as the CPU host, without compromising the overall performance. Our approach fea- tures separation of concerns by abstracting the complexity of the hardware from the end users so that high productivity can be achieved. The Cholesky factorization is used as a benchmark representative of dense numerical linear algebra algorithms. Superior performance is also demonstrated on the symmetric matrix inversion based on Cholesky factorization, commonly used in co-variance computations in statistics. Performance on a NUMA system with Kepler-based GPUs exceeds that of existing implementations, while the OmpSs-enabled code remains very similar to its original sequential version.

  20. Locality-Aware Task Scheduling and Data Distribution for OpenMP Programs on NUMA Systems and Manycore Processors

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ananya Muddukrishna

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Performance degradation due to nonuniform data access latencies has worsened on NUMA systems and can now be felt on-chip in manycore processors. Distributing data across NUMA nodes and manycore processor caches is necessary to reduce the impact of nonuniform latencies. However, techniques for distributing data are error-prone and fragile and require low-level architectural knowledge. Existing task scheduling policies favor quick load-balancing at the expense of locality and ignore NUMA node/manycore cache access latencies while scheduling. Locality-aware scheduling, in conjunction with or as a replacement for existing scheduling, is necessary to minimize NUMA effects and sustain performance. We present a data distribution and locality-aware scheduling technique for task-based OpenMP programs executing on NUMA systems and manycore processors. Our technique relieves the programmer from thinking of NUMA system/manycore processor architecture details by delegating data distribution to the runtime system and uses task data dependence information to guide the scheduling of OpenMP tasks to reduce data stall times. We demonstrate our technique on a four-socket AMD Opteron machine with eight NUMA nodes and on the TILEPro64 processor and identify that data distribution and locality-aware task scheduling improve performance up to 69% for scientific benchmarks compared to default policies and yet provide an architecture-oblivious approach for programmers.

    Full Text Available The evergrowing trend of big data has led scientists to share and transfer the simulation and analytical data across the geodistributed research and computing facilities. However, the existing data transfer frameworks used for data sharing lack the capability to adopt the attributes of the underlying parallel file systems (PFS. LADS (Layout-Aware Data Scheduling is an end-to-end data transfer tool optimized for terabit network using a layout-aware data scheduling via PFS. However, it does not consider the NUMA (Nonuniform Memory Access architecture. In this paper, we propose a NUMA-aware thread and resource scheduling for optimized data transfer in terabit network. First, we propose distributed RMA buffers to reduce memory controller contention in CPU sockets and then schedule the threads based on CPU socket and NUMA nodes inside CPU socket to reduce memory access latency. We design and implement the proposed resource and thread scheduling in the existing LADS framework. Experimental results showed from 21.7% to 44% improvement with memory-level optimizations in the LADS framework as compared to the baseline without any optimization.

Justapondo afirmações apodíticas, ele mesmo dá um exemplo dessa ambivalência pela provocativa ideia de que nem a obra literária nem sua tradução estariam dirigidas ao seu leitor. Considerando o uso comunicativo da linguagem como um abuso, Benjamin não apenas defende a autonomia da obra, mas também reivindica a autonomia da tradução como “forma”. Não sendo um canal de comunicação para o original nem sua derivação, a tarefa da tradução consiste em despertar a “pura língua” no original. Assim, correspondências escondidas têm de substituir a comunicação linear.

    Full Text Available O declínio de desempenho motor característico do envelhecimento tem sido proposto ter como causa um fator único, originário de deterioração da capacidade de processamento central de informação. Por essa proposição, o desempenho motor em diferentes tarefas deveria ser prejudicado similarmente durante o envelhecimento. Para testar essa hipótese, o desempenho sensório-motor de indivíduos fisicamente ativos entre 19 e 73 anos de idade foi estudado em oito tarefas: tempo de reação, tempo de movimento no contato com um alvo, força manual máxima, sincronização, controle de força, toques repetidos com haste vertical, desenhos seqüenciais e toques entre os dedos. A análise dos resultados indicou perfis variáveis de desempenho entre as tarefas motoras na comparação entre as idades, com declínio motor a uma taxa moderada entre 20 e 60 anos para tempo de reação, quedas mais acentuadas de desempenho na transição entre 20 e 40 anos em tarefas requisitando velocidade de execução de movimentos simples ou precisão temporal, quedas mais acentuadas na transição entre 60 e 70 anos para força máxima e habilidade gráfica e manutenção da capacidade de desempenho com o envelhecimento para controle de força manual. Dessa forma, esses resultados revelam-se contraditórios com a hipótese de fator único e oferecem suporte à hipótese alternativa de que a taxa de declínio de desempenho sensório-motor durante o envelhecimento é específica à tarefa.El descenso del desempeño motor, característico del envejecimiento, ha sido propuesto tener como causa un factor único, originario de la deterioración de la capacidad del procesamiento central de información.

    Rita de Cássia dos Reis Moura

    2016-03-01

    Full Text Available A distonia é uma desordem de ordem neurológica, caracterizada por descontrole dos movimentos ou de posturas ou ambos, por contração intermitente ou de forma sustentada. A distonia do músico é considerada como uma distonia tarefa-específica, que é deflagrada somente durante a performance musical. Pode ocorrer em qualquer parte do corpo; frequentemente face, músculos do pescoço e membros superiores. O conhecimento dessa doença ocupacional entre a população de músicos no Brasil é pouco difundido. O objetivo deste trabalho é discorrer a respeito das estruturas cerebrais envolvidas no processo motor e da fisiologia envolvida na distonia do músico, bem como dos tratamentos disponíveis no intuito de enfatizar a importância de seu reconhecimento e tratamento precoce e apresentar pesquisa realizada com protocolo de tratamento. O método é um levantamento bibliográfico da fisiologia do controle motor, do desenvolvimento e tratamento da distonia do músico utilizando literatura nacional e internacional e aplicação de protocolo de tratamento estruturado. Como resultados, existe já um corpus bibliográfico consistente na língua inglesa, porém escasso em português, principalmente no quesito tratamento, podemos constatar melhora em diversos aspectos de padrão motor após protocolo de tratamento na avaliação após seis meses, tais como relaxamento, aquisição de maior consciência corporal ao tocar, instabilidade, tremor e dissociação de movimentos. Como conclusão, constata-se a necessidade de implementar a discussão e pesquisa nessa área, principalmente com relação aos tratamentos. Por outro lado, sabe-se que a melhor ferramenta contra esta afecção se encontra no tratamento mais precoce possível.

Cento e vinte adultos foram aleatoriamente designados a seis grupos de diferentes níveis de frequência (100%, 66% ou 33% e precisão (específico ou geral de conhecimento de resultados (CR. Na fase de estabilização, a tarefa combinada de posicionamento linear e controle de força manual foi executada com CR. Dez tentativas de adaptação sem CR foram executadas na mesma tarefa, com a introdução de uma força eletromagnética contrária à direção do movimento. A análise indicou efeito significativo no fator "frequência de CR". Aqueles que receberam CR em 66% das tentativas de estabilização obtiveram desempenho de adaptação superior quando comparados àqueles que receberam 100% ou 33% de CR. Esse achado reforça a existência de um nível ótimo de informação, nem muito alto nem muito baixo, para que a aprendizagem seja otimizada.

O objetivo da pesquisa foi analisar e comparar o desempenho em tarefas de leitura e escrita em crianças com dislexia do desenvolvimento após um programa de tutoria. Participaram deste estudo quinze crianças de ambos os gêneros de 3º ao 7º ano de escolas públicas de uma cidade do interior do Estado de São Paulo, com média de idades (M= 9,4 e (DP=1,08 divididos em GI – grupo experimental (7 crianças que receberam intervenção e GII – grupo controle (8 crianças não receberam a intervenção, os mesmos foram pareados segundo sexo e faixa etária com o GI. As crianças foram submetidas ao levantamento diagnóstico de Leitura e Escrita e ao programa de intervenção em tutoria Reading Recovery. Os dados referentes às tarefas de leitura e escrita vinculadas ao programa de tutoria foram coletados no CEES – Centro de Estudos de Educação e Saúde da UNESP – campus de Marília- SP. Os resultados revelaram diferença estatisticamente significativa entre o GI e o GII, onde as crianças com dislexia do GI apresentaram desempenho superior na tarefa de leitura de palavras e leitura do livro I em relação às crianças do GII. Concluiu-se que o GI apresentou avanços significativos comparados à GII que não recebeu intervenção de tutoria, demonstrando que devido à variabilidade do perfil cognitivo-linguístico das crianças com dislexia, é necessário que se desenvolva, principalmente, no contexto escolar programas com intervenções centradas nas dificuldades especificas dessa população.

    2010-01-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Some functions of 4.1R in non-erythroid cells are directly related with its distinct sub-cellular localisation during cell cycle phases. During mitosis, 4.1R is implicated in cell cycle progression and spindle pole formation, and co-localizes with NuMA1. However, during interphase 4.1R is located in the nucleus and only partially co-localizes with NuMA1. Results We have characterized by NMR the structural features of the C-terminal domain of 4.1R and those of the minimal region (the last 64 residues involved in the interaction with NuMA1. This subdomain behaves as an intrinsically unfolded protein containing a central region with helical tendency. The specific residues implicated in the interaction with NuMA1 have been mapped by NMR titrations and involve the N-terminal and central helical regions. The segment of NuMA1 that interacts with 4.1R is phosphorylated during mitosis. Interestingly, NMR data indicates that the phosphorylation of NuMA1 interacting peptide provokes a change in the interaction mechanism. In this case, the recognition occurs through the central helical region as well as through the C-terminal region of the subdomain meanwhile the N-terminal region do not interact. Conclusions These changes in the interaction derived from the phosphorylation state of NuMA1 suggest that phosphorylation can act as subtle mechanism of temporal and spatial regulation of the complex 4.1R-NuMA1 and therefore of the processes where both proteins play a role.

    Full Text Available By assuming that different languages permeate tasks developed in Mathematics classrooms and that these languages may signal the (lack of knowledge of agents who participate in them, we bring to discussion in this paper, according to Ludwig Wittgenstein’s premises (2009 about language, how students in an undergraduate Education course deal with multiplication and division operations. Supported by Wittgenstein’s notions of language games, we seek to identify the games which are present in actions of these students as they solve the tasks proposed, and the family resemblances saved among them. Therefore, we analyzed productions of students (scripts in natural language, scripts in mathematical language, scripts in pictorial language, as well as transcripts of recordings of their involvement with the tasks. On one hand, the analysis shows that, despite the occurrence of a variety of languages, the mathematical language seems to validate mathematical knowledge. On the other hand, in students’ productions, the languages keep, in general, family resemblances, from a game to another, to a third game, or within own the game. Despite such similarities, inconsistencies related to the conceptual development of students’ multiplication and division, often sustained in routine expressions in the classroom, lead us to infer that there is a lack of epistemological depth related to these operations, and therefore to the decimal numeration system. Ao assumir que diferentes linguagens permeiam as tarefas desenvolvidas nas salas de aula de Matemática e podem sinalizar os (desconhecimentos dos agentes que delas participam, trazemos para discussão, neste artigo, segundo os pressupostos de Ludwig Wittgenstein (2009 a respeito da linguagem, como alunas de um curso de Pedagogia lidam com operações de multiplicação e divisão.

MÉTODOS: A tarefa Simon, administrada individualmente em um laptop com o software e-prime, foi utilizada para mensurar aspectos ligados a funções executivas por meio de uma condição controle e duas condições de teste. Na condição controle, os estímulos - quadrados coloridos - eram apresentados no centro da tela. As condições de teste subdividiam-se em condições laterais congruentes - estímulos posicionados no mesmo lado da tela em que a tecla do computador a ser selecionada para a resposta - e laterais incongruentes - em que os estímulos aparecem no lado da tela oposto ao da tecla a ser selecionada. A diferença de tempo de reação entre as condições congruente e incongruente é chamada de efeito Simon. Os idosos foram agrupados em três grupos: um grupo controle de indivíduos com audição normal; indivíduos com presbiacusia, usuários de próteses auditivas; e indivíduos com presbiacusia não usuários de próteses auditivas. RESULTADOS: A análise estatística apontou diferença entre o grupo sem perda auditiva (controle e o grupo de não usuários de prótese auditiva somente no tempo de reação (TR na condição controle.

    2000-01-01

    This manual is a combination of a user manual, theory manual, and programmer manual. The reader is assumed to have some previous exposure to the finite element method. This manual is written with the idea that the CSTEM (Coupled Structural Thermal Electromagnetic-Computer Code) user needs to have a basic understanding of what the code is actually doing in order to properly use the code. For that reason, the underlying theory and methods used in the code are described to a basic level of detail. The manual gives an overview of the CSTEM code: how the code came into existence, a basic description of what the code does, and the order in which it happens (a flowchart). Appendices provide a listing and very brief description of every file used by the CSTEM code, including the type of file it is, what routine regularly accesses the file, and what routine opens the file, as well as special features included in CSTEM.

  20. Achieving High Performance With TCP Over 40 GbE on NUMA Architectures for CMS Data Acquisition

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Bawej, Tomasz; et al.

    2014-01-01

    TCP and the socket abstraction have barely changed over the last two decades, but at the network layer there has been a giant leap from a few megabits to 100 gigabits in bandwidth. At the same time, CPU architectures have evolved into the multicore era and applications are expected to make full use of all available resources. Applications in the data acquisition domain based on the standard socket library running in a Non-Uniform Memory Access (NUMA) architecture are unable to reach full efficiency and scalability without the software being adequately aware about the IRQ (Interrupt Request), CPU and memory affinities. During the first long shutdown of LHC, the CMS DAQ system is going to be upgraded for operation from 2015 onwards and a new software component has been designed and developed in the CMS online framework for transferring data with sockets. This software attempts to wrap the low-level socket library to ease higher-level programming with an API based on an asynchronous event driven model similar to the DAT uDAPL API. It is an event-based application with NUMA optimizations, that allows for a high throughput of data across a large distributed system. This paper describes the architecture, the technologies involved and the performance measurements of the software in the context of the CMS distributed event building.

    Korea Advanced Energy Research Institute (KAERI) conceived and started the development of MARS code with the main objective of producing a state-of-the-art realistic thermal hydraulic systems analysis code with multi-dimensional analysis capability. MARS achieves this objective by very tightly integrating the one dimensional RELAP5/MOD3 with the multi-dimensional COBRA-TF codes. The method of integration of the two codes is based on the dynamic link library techniques, and the system pressure equation matrices of both codes are implicitly integrated and solved simultaneously. In addition, the Equation-Of-State (EOS) for the light water was unified by replacing the EOS of COBRA-TF by that of the RELAP5. This programmer's manual provides a complete list of overall information of code structure and input/output function of MARS. In addition, brief descriptions for each subroutine and major variables used in MARS are also included in this report, so that this report would be very useful for the code maintenance. The overall structure of the manual is modeled on the structure of the RELAP5 and as such the layout of the manual is very similar to that of the RELAP. This similitude to RELAP5 input is intentional as this input scheme will allow minimum modification between the inputs of RELAP5 and MARS3.1. MARS3.1 development team would like to express its appreciation to the RELAP5 Development Team and the USNRC for making this manual possible

  11. Egyptian Mythological Manuals

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Jørgensen, Jens Kristoffer Blach

    From the hands of Greek mythographers a great number of myths have survived along with philosophical discussions of their meaning and relevance for the Greeks. It is little known that something similar existed in ancient Egypt where temple libraries and archives held scholarly literature used...... by the native priesthood, much of which has only been published in recent years. As part of this corpus of texts, the ancient Egyptian mythological manuals offer a unique perspective on how the Egyptian priesthood structured and interpreted Egyptian myths. The thesis looks at the different interpretative...... techniques used in the Tebtunis Mythological Manual (Second century CE) and the Mythological Manual of the Delta (Sixth century BCE) and the place of these manuals within the larger corpus of priestly scholarly literature from ancient Egypt. To organize the wealth of local myths the manuals use model...

  15. A highly efficient 3D level-set grain growth algorithm tailored for ccNUMA architecture

    Science.gov (United States)

    Mießen, C.; Velinov, N.; Gottstein, G.; Barrales-Mora, L. A.

    2017-12-01

    A highly efficient simulation model for 2D and 3D grain growth was developed based on the level-set method. The model introduces modern computational concepts to achieve excellent performance on parallel computer architectures. Strong scalability was measured on cache-coherent non-uniform memory access (ccNUMA) architectures. To achieve this, the proposed approach considers the application of local level-set functions at the grain level. Ideal and non-ideal grain growth was simulated in 3D with the objective to study the evolution of statistical representative volume elements in polycrystals. In addition, microstructure evolution in an anisotropic magnetic material affected by an external magnetic field was simulated.

    Full Text Available Este estudo teve como objetivo verificar a influência da flexibilidade da superfície de assento da cadeira na velocidade e no tempo despendido por alunos com paralisia cerebral espástica durante a execução de uma tarefa de manuseio de um objeto na posição sentada. Participaram do estudo 11 alunos, de ambos os gêneros, com diagnóstico de paralisia cerebral espástica, que tinham algum controle de tronco e membros superiores. A quantificação da análise cinemática foi realizada em duas situações experimentais: 1 execução de uma tarefa acadêmica de encaixe, com o indivíduo posicionado em um mobiliário adaptado com assento de lona; 2 execução de uma tarefa acadêmica de encaixe, com o participante posicionado em um mobiliário adaptado com assento de madeira. Os dados obtidos foram submetidos à análise estatística descritiva e não-paramétrica por meio do teste de Wilcoxon. Os resultados indicaram que: 1 a velocidade média de execução das tarefas não foi influenciada pelo tipo de assento utilizado 2 o tempo de execução da tarefa foi influenciada pelo tipo de assento utilizado. A utilização do assento de lona aumentou o tempo de realização da tarefa. Conclui-se que o assento de um mobiliário escolar para um aluno com paralisia cerebral espástica não deve ser confeccionado com um material muito flexível. Este tipo de assento fornecerá uma base instável que dificultará o desempenho do aluno durante atividades realizadas com os membros superiores.The objective of this study was to verify the influence of the flexibility of the seat surface of a chair on the speed and time expended by students with spastic cerebral palsy during the performance of a task involving the manipulation an object while in a seated position.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo é identificar as estratégias utilizadas nas tarefas de rotação mental pela análise dos traçados dos movimentos oculares. Foi analisado o desempenho de 40 participantes na comparação de pares de objetos tridimensionais rotacionados no eixo y, com diferenças de angulação de 0o a 180o. Foi utilizado um sistema computacional de rastreamento dos movimentos oculares (eyetracking durante a visualização de figuras. Os resultados mostram que tempo de julgamento, duração média das fixações do olho, número de fixações nos objetos e número de alternâncias entre os dois objetos aumentam em função da diferença de angulação. Análise dos traçados oculares, com base na inspeção visual, indica o uso de dois tipos de estratégias: rotação mental em torno dos eixos padrões e comparação independente da orientação. O uso dessas estratégias é discutido com relação ao desempenho dos participantes e à memória de trabalho.The purpose of this paper is to identify the strategies used on mental rotation tasks by analyzing ocular movements. The performance of 40 participants on comparison of pairs of three-dimensional objects, rotated on the y-axis, from 0o to 180o was analyzed. An eye-tracking computerized system was used to track eye movements during scene visualization. Results showed that judgment time, fixation duration, number of fixations and number of switches between the objects increased with rotation angle. Analysis by visual inspection indicates the use of two kinds of strategies: Mental rotation around the standard axis and comparison of orientation-free descriptions. The use of the strategies is discussed with regard to performance and working memory.

    Full Text Available O estudo investiga efeitos da tutoria para o tutor, na aprendizagem de noções espaciais, em duas modalidades: explicação oral e explicação oral com demonstração. Participaram 40 crianças de 8 a 9 anos, em três grupos experimentais e um grupo controle. A pesquisa teve delineamento experimental, com pré-teste e pós-testes. No pré-teste e pós-testes 1 e 2 foram aplicadas duas provas de noções espaciais. A tarefa experimental consistiu na realização do jogo do parking em três condições: crianças sozinhas, crianças em díades na modalidade explicação oral ou na modalidade explicação oral com demonstração. Os resultados mostraram que a tutoria favoreceu a aprendizagem das noções espaciais para a criança tutora, com vantagem para a modalidade explicação oral com demonstração. Foram identificadas variações nos progressos alcançados pelos tutores nas duas modalidades tutoriais. São feitas considerações sobre as vantagens da tutoria no campo educacional.The study concerns the effects of tutoring on tutor children, on the learning of spatial notions, in two tutorship modalities, oral explanation and oral explanation with demonstration. Subjects were 40 children aged 8 to 9 years old, randomly assigned to three experimental groups and a control group. The study design is experimental, with pre-test and post-test. Two spatial tasks were employed as pre-test and post-tests (1 and 2. The experimental task consisted in a parking game carried out under three conditions: children alone, children in pairs for both oral explanation and oral explanation with demonstration. Results showed that tutor's learning on the focused spatial notions was favored by tutorship especially under the oral explanation with demonstration condition. Some variations on the tutor's progress were also identified on both modalities. The results provide some grounds on which tutorship may be debated in the educational field.

    Full Text Available O badminton é um esporte no qual os atletas devem responder a golpes rápidos e potentes de maneira acurada. Assim, o objetivo do estudo foi investigar se jogadores de badminton de alto nível apresentam melhores índices de desempenho neuromuscular do que jogadores de nível intermediário na tarefa de apontar um alvo. Doze jogadores de alto nível (GAN, que defendem ou defenderam a seleção brasileira de badminton, e 12 jogadores de nível intermediário (GNI participaram do estudo. Eles permaneceram em pé, com o dedo indicador da mão dominante sobre um interruptor localizado à frente e direcionado à linha média do corpo, e foram instruídos a tocar um alvo em uma tela sensível ao toque posicionada à frente assim que ele se tornasse luminoso. O alvo foi apresentado ipsilateralmente ou contralateralmente ao membro superior dominante, em blocos (tempo de reação simples ou randomicamente (tempo de reação de escolha. As variáveis tempo de reação (TR, tempo de movimento (TM e erro radial (ER foram computadas. Os resultados não revelaram efeito de grupo para TM e ER, mas revelaram que o GAN apresentou TR menor que o GNI. Ainda, o TR foi menor para a condição em blocos e o TR e o TM foram menores para o alvo ipsilateral. O fato de o GAN apresentar TR menor que o GNI indica que jogadores de alto nível teriam melhor capacidade reativa que jogadores de níveis inferiores. Assim, concluímos que o TR poderia ser uma variável importante na seleção de atletas que teriam maiores chances de alcançar altos níveis de desempenho no badminton. Ainda, apesar de o teste utilizado não representar integralmente as ações de jogo, ele é um avanço quando comparado aos testes comumente utilizados na investigação do TR e TM em atletas e deveria ser utilizado na avaliação de atletas de outros esportes.

    Full Text Available Preferência manual em bebês de 5 meses de idade foi avaliada em tarefas de alcançar alvos estáticos posicionados na linha média, à direita e à esquerda com referência a coordenadas egocêntricas. A análise da frequência de uso das mãos indicou direção e magnitude de preferência manual diversificadas entre os bebês. Foi observado que os bebês realizaram predominantemente alcances ipsilaterais para alvos posicionados lateralmente. Para alcances na linha média a frequência de uso foi semelhante entre as mãos direita e esquerda. Os resultados sugerem que nessa fase do desenvolvimento a preferência manual para o alcançar é alterada pela posição dos objetos no espaço.Manual preference of 5-month-old infants was evaluated in tasks of reaching static targets positioned on the midline, at the left and right, regarding egocentric coordinates. Frequency analysis of using the hands pointed out to diversified direction and magnitude of manual preference among infants. It was observed that they predominantly made ipsilateral reaches toward targets laterally positioned. Frequency of using the right and left hands was similar for targets located at the midline. The results suggest that in this stage of development manual preference is shifted by the spatial position of the objects.

  10. Nuclear electronics laboratory manual

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1984-05-01

    The Nuclear Electronics Laboratory Manual is a joint product of several electronics experts who have been associated with IAEA activity in this field for many years. The manual does not include experiments of a basic nature, such as characteristics of different active electronics components. It starts by introducing small electronics blocks, employing one or more active components. The most demanding exercises instruct a student in the design and construction of complete circuits, as used in commercial nuclear instruments. It is expected that a student who completes all the experiments in the manual should be in a position to design nuclear electronics units and also to understand the functions of advanced commercial instruments which need to be repaired or maintained. The future tasks of nuclear electronics engineers will be increasingly oriented towards designing and building the interfaces between a nuclear experiment and a computer. The manual pays tribute to this development by introducing a number of experiments which illustrate the principles and the technology of interfacing

Focamos as interações conflituosas entre os sexos, buscando revelar as múltiplas nuances dos jogos de poder que ações aparentemente similares escondiam. Ao articular o conceito de conflito a significados simultaneamente lúdicos e de agressividade, passamos a compreendê-lo como "jogos de gênero", um dos modos possíveis de sociabilidade nas relações entre meninos e meninas.Based upon an ethnographic study of children's break time in a primary school in São Paulo, this article analyses the gender relations among children from 7 to 10 years old. We focus on the conflicting relationships between the sexes in an attempt to show the multiple forms of power play hidden behind apparently similar actions. By articulating the concept of conflict with simultaneous meanings of aggression and joking, we use the concept of "gender play" as one of the possible ways of sociability between boys and girls.

Realizaram-se observações globais das tarefas nas primeiras visitas à empresa, visando conhecer a organização geral, o funcionamento da produção e os determinantes das tarefas. Observaram-se nesta etapa que as exigências temporais na execução das tarefas implicavam demandas psicossociais e demandas físicas, em especial, os movimentos repetitivos. Na segunda etapa, realizaram-se observações sistemáticas, com entrevistas simultâneas. Mediu-se a duração dos ciclos básicos das tarefas na moldagem/acabamento das embalagens e registrou-se a ocorrência de perturbações que exigiam das trabalhadoras sua regulação. Identificaram-se variabilidades do trabalho, evidenciando como são geradas as demandas extras e como as exigências cognitivas e físicas podem ser exacerbadas pela pressão temporal. A insuficiência dos meios de trabalho, as exigências temporais da gestão da produção e uma organização do trabalho caracterizada pelo baixo controle conformam uma situação em que a continuidade da produção apenas é possível à custa de hipersolicitação do corpo das trabalhadoras.An ergonomic study was carried out to characterize repetitive work and psychosocial demands at work in a plastic industry in The Greater Salvador, State of Bahia, Brazil.

    Spang, A.

    1983-01-01

    According to the Radiation Protection Ordinance, radiation protection experts directing or supervising the handling of radioactive materials must have expert knowledge. The concept of expert knowledge has been clearly defined by the Fachverband e.V. in a catalogue of instruction goals. The manual follows the principles of this catalogue; it presents the expert knowledge required in a total of 15 subject groups. There is an index which helps the reader to find his specific subject group and the knowledge required of him in this subject group. However, the manual gives only an outline of the subject matter in many instances and should therefore not be regarded as a textbook in the proper sense. (orig./HP) [de

    The Program Management System (PMS), as detailed in this manual, consists of all the plans, policies, procedure, systems, and processes that, taken together, serve as a mechanism for managing the various subprograms and program elements in a cohesive, cost-effective manner. The PMS is consistent with the requirements of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982 and the ''Mission Plan for the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Program'' (DOE/RW-0005). It is based on, but goes beyond, the Department of Energy (DOE) management policies and procedures applicable to all DOE programs by adapting these directives to the specific needs of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management program. This PMS Manual describes the hierarchy of plans required to develop and maintain the cost, schedule, and technical baselines at the various organizational levels of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Program. It also establishes the management policies and procedures used in the implementation of the Program. These include requirements for internal reports, data, and other information; systems engineering management; regulatory compliance; safety; quality assurance; and institutional affairs. Although expanded versions of many of these plans, policies, and procedures are found in separate documents, they are an integral part of this manual. The PMS provides the basis for the effective management that is needed to ensure that the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Program fulfills the mandate of the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982. 5 figs., 2 tabs

    Watanabe, Norio; Higuchi, Suminori.

    1990-11-01

    The event tree analysis technique has been used in Probabilistic Safety Assessment for LWRs to delineate various accident scenarios leading to core melt or containment failure and to evaluate their frequencies. This technique often requires manual preparation of event trees with iterative process and time-consuming work in data handling. For the purpose of reducing manual efforts in event tree analysis, we developed a new software package named ETAP (Event Tree Analysis Supporting Program) for event tree analysis. ETAP is an interactive PC-based program which has the ability to construct, update, document, and quantify event trees. Because of its fast running capability to quantify event trees, use of the EATP program can make it easy to perform the sensitivity studies on a variety of system/containment performance issues. This report provides a user's manual for ETAP, which describes the structure, installation, and use of EATP. This software runs on NEC/PC-9800 or compatible PCs that have a 640 KB memory and MS-DOS 2.11 or higher. (author)

  4. Sodium safety manual

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hayes, D.J.; Gardiner, R.L.

    1980-09-01

    The sodium safety manual is based upon more than a decade of experience with liquid sodium at Berkeley Nuclear Laboratories (BNL). It draws particularly from the expertise and experience developed in the course of research work into sodium fires and sodium water reactions. It draws also on information obtained from the UKAEA and other sodium users. Many of the broad principles will apply to other Establishments but much of the detail is specific to BNL and as a consequence its application at other sites may well be limited. Accidents with sodium are at best unpleasant and at worst lethal in an extremely painful way. The object of this manual is to help prevent sodium accidents. It is not intended to give detailed advice on specific precautions for particular situations, but rather to set out the overall strategy which will ensure that sodium activities will be pursued safely. More detail is generally conveyed to staff by the use of local instructions known as Sodium Working Procedures (SWP's) which are not reproduced in this manual although a list of current SWP's is included. Much attention is properly given to the safe design and operation of larger facilities; nevertheless evidence suggests that sodium accidents most frequently occur in small-scale work particularly in operations associated with sodium cleaning and special care is needed in all such cases.

    The OASIS system has been operational for years now. After a long development the project has reached a state where the number of features it provides exceeds largely what most of its users knows about. The author felt it was time to write a user manual explaining all the functionality of the viewer application. This document is a user manual, concentrating on the functionality of the viewer from the user’s point of view. There are already documents available on the project’s web site about the technical aspects at http://project-oasis.web.cern.ch/project-oasis/presentations.htm . There was an attempt to produce a tutorial on the viewer, but it didn’t get much further than the table of contents, that however is well thought. The structure of this user manual follows the same principle, the basic and most often used features are grouped together. Advanced or less often used features are described in a separate chapter. There is a second organizational principle, features belong to different levels: chann...

Actualmente há evidência a enfatizar o papel deste microrganismo nas infecções adquiridas na comunidade.É relatado o caso de uma criança previamente saudável, de 28 meses de idade, internada por febre associada a tosse e dor localizada no hemitórax esquerdo e cuja radiografia torácica revelou pneumonia necrotisante do lobo inferior. A investigação diagnóstica efetuada permitiu o diagnóstico de Pneumonia adquirida na comunidade a Acinetobacter lwoffii.A criança partilhava frequentemente o seu equipamento respiratório com familiares idosos com doença pulmonar crónica obstrutiva. Dado não terem sido apurados outros factores de risco, considera-se que a partilha do equipamento poderá ter sido o foco infeccioso.Os autores pretendem alertar para a possibilidade de Pneumonia adquirida na comunidade por Acinetobacter lwoffii, numa criança previamente saudável, relacionada com o mau uso e limpeza dos nebulizadores. Este caso realça o papel emergente desta bactéria, mesmo no contexto comunitário. Abstract: Acinetobacter is involved in a variety of infectious diseases primarily associated with healthcare. Recently there has been increasing evidence of the important role these pathogens play in community acquired infections.We report on the case of a previously healthy child, aged 28 months, admitted for fever, cough and pain on the left side of the chest, which on radiographic examination corresponded to a lower lobe necrotizing pneumonia. After detailed diagnostic work–up, community acquired Acinetobacter lwoffii pneumonia was diagnosed.The child had frequently shared respiratory equipment with elderly relatives with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

    Full Text Available O estudo foi desenvolvido numa instituição hospitalar da capital de São Paulo, com uma população de 54 enfermeiros que solicitaram demissão no período de janeiro de 1995 a janeiro de 1996. Esses enfermeiros, no momento da demissão, preencheram uma ficha com informações sobre tempo de serviço, razões e comentários sobre a demissão, opinião sobre a instituição, a supervisão e sugestões. Objetivou-se analisar a freqüência e os motivos da rotatividade dos enfermeiros na instituição, no sentido de delinear estratégias administrativas adequadas de intervenção. Foi utilizado o estudo exploratório de caráter retrospectivo, com análise quanti-qualitativa dos dados. A análise dos dados considerou que 74% dos enfermeiros se desligaram da instituição no período de doze meses, sendo 35,3% até o terceiro mês. Os enfermeiros deram ênfase às condições de trabalho, especialmente o quadro de pessoal, benefícios e a comunicação interpessoal. Os resultados vieram ao encontro da nossa percepção sobre as causas da rotatividade dos enfermeiros da instituição.

    Full Text Available The aim of the present study was to evaluate coherence measures at Theta through qEEG during the accomplishment of a specific motor task. The sample consisted of 23 healthy individuals, both sexes, with ages varying between 25 and 40 years old. All subjects were submmitted to a specific motor task of cacthing sequences of falling balls. A three-way ANOVA was employed for the statistical analysis, which demonstrated main effects for the following factors: time, block and position. However, there was no interection between the factors. A significant and generalized coherence reduction was observed during the task execution time. Coherence was also diminished at the left frontal cortex and contralateral hemisphere of the utilizing limb (comparing to the right frontal cortex. In conclusion, these findings suggest a certain specialization of the neural circuit, also according to previous investigations. The inter-coherence reduction suggests a spatial inter-electrode dependence during the task, rather than a neuronal specialization.O objetivo do presente experimento foi avaliar medidas de coerência na banda Teta através do EEGq durante a realização de uma atividade motora. A amostra constituiu-se de 23 sujeitos saudáveis, ambos os sexos, faixa etária entre 25 e 40 anos. Os sujeitos foram submetidos à tarefa motora de apreensão seqüencial de bolas em queda livre. Para análise estatística foi realizada uma ANOVA (Three-Way que demonstrou efeito principal para os fatores: momento, tempo e posição. Porém não houve interação entre os fatores. Uma diminuição generalizada significativa da coerência ocorreu ao longo do tempo de execução da tarefa que também se apresentou reduzida no córtex frontal esquerdo, hemisfério contralateral ao membro utilizado (em comparação com o córtex frontal direito.

    2006-01-01

    Full Text Available A lesão seletiva do giro denteado (DG reduz a eficiência do desempenho de ratos treinados pré-operatoriamente em um esquema de reforçamento diferencial de baixas taxas (DRL; embora os animais lesados sejam capazes de suprimir a resposta de pressão na barra por determinado intervalo de tempo após a resposta anterior, eles subestimam esse intervalo, resultando em um desempenho menos eficiente. Como os animais tinham recebido treinamento pré-operatório, não ficou claro se a lesão interfere na aquisição da discriminação temporal. Este estudo avaliou o efeito da lesão do DG na aquisição de uma tarefa de DRL-20 s. Ratos foram submetidos à neurocirurgia e então ao treino na tarefa de DRL-20 s. Os resultados mostraram que embora os animais lesados se beneficiem do treinamento na tarefa, sua aquisição não é tão eficiente quanto a exibida pelos animais controle. Os resultados sugerem ainda que a lesão do giro denteado interfere na acuidade da discriminação temporal.Previous studies have shown that dentate gyrus damage render rats less efficient than sham-operated controls in the performance of a differential reinforcement of low rates of responding (DRL-20 s task acquired prior to the lesion; even though the lesioned rats were able to postpone their responses after a previous bar press, they seem to underestimate time relative to sham-operated controls, which interferes with their performance. This study investigated the effects of multiplesite, intradentate, colchicine injections on the acquisition and performance of a DRL-20 s task in rats not exposed to preoperatory training, i.e., trained after the lesion. Results showed that the lesioned rats improved along repetitive training in the DRL-20 s task; however, relative to the sham-operated controls, their acquisition rate was slower and the level of proficiency achieved was poorer, indicating that damage to the dentate gyrus interferes with temporal discrimination.

    The program MITMAP represents a set of general purpose, two- dimensional, finite element programs for the calculation of magnetic fields. It consists of the program MAP and MAP2DJ. The two programs are used to solve different electromagnetic problems, but they have a common set of subrountines for pre- and postprocessing. Originally separate programs, they have been combined to make modification easier. The manuals, however, will remain separate. The program MAP is described in this manual. MAP is applicable to the class of problems with two-dimensional-planar or axisymmetric - geometries, in which the current density and the magnetic vector potential have only a single nonvanishing component. The single component is associated with the direction that is perpendicular to the plane of the problem and is invariant with respect to that direction. Maxwell's equations can be reduced to a solver diffusion equation in terms of the single, nonvanishing component of the magnetic vector potential for planar problems and to a single component of a vector potential for planar problems and to a single component of a vector diffusion equation for axisymmetric problems. The magnetic permeability appears in the governing equation. The permeability may be a function of the magnetic flux density. In addition, any electrically conducting material present will have eddy currents induced by a time varying magnetic field. These eddy currents must be included in the solution process. This manual provides a description of the structure of the input data and output for the program. There are several example problems presented that illustrate the major program features. Appendices are included that contain a derivation of the governing equations and the application of the finite element method to the solution of the equations

O objetivo foi identificar e analisar características do pensamento algébrico em tarefas aplicadas a estudantes do Ensino Fundamental I. Mais especificamente, buscamos compreender como trinta e cinco estudantes do 5º Ano do Ensino Fundamental I de uma escola pública do município de Apucarana-PR lidam com tarefas que promovem o desenvolvimento do pensamento algébrico. Para organização e interpretação dos dados, empregamos procedimentos à luz da Análise de Conteúdo, sendo esta uma modalidade de pesquisa qualitativa. Por meio das respostas apresentadas e das indagações e afirmações dos estudantes durante a resolução das tarefas, o estudo mostrou que embora as resoluções nem sempre estivessem corretas, estas evidenciam indícios de pensamento algébrico, uma vez que os participantes desse estudo perceberam e tentaram expressar as estruturas aritméticas das situações-problema, assim como, descreveram seus processos de pensamento. Portanto, esses estudantes do Ensino Fundamental I têm condições de lidar e de desenvolver aspectos relacionados ao pensamento algébrico, mesmo não apresentando uma linguagem simbólica algébrica. Taking Early Algebra as a research area that seeks an approach to the teaching and learning of early algebra, this paper presents an analysis of attitudes, questions and written productions that provide clues about the behavior of children in solving tasks. The objective was to identify and analyze characteristics of algebraic thinking in tasks applied to elementary school students. More specifically, we aimed to understand how thirty-five students from the 5th year of elementary school in a public school in the city of Apucarana-PR deal

    BBC is a two-dimensional, multifluid Eulerian hydro-radiation code based on KRAKEN and some subsequent ideas. It was developed in the explosion group in T-Division as a basic two-dimensional code to which various types of physics can be added. For this reason BBC is a FORTRAN (LRLTRAN) code. In order to gain the 2-to-1 to 4-to-1 speed advantage of the STACKLIB software on the 7600's and to be able to execute at high speed on the STAR, the vector extensions of LRLTRAN (STARTRAN) are used throughout the code. Either cylindrical- or slab-type problems can be run on BBC. The grid is bounded by a rectangular band of boundary zones. The interfaces between the regular and boundary zones can be selected to be either rigid or nonrigid. The setup for BBC problems is described in the KEG Manual and LEG Manual. The difference equations are described in BBC Hydrodynamics. Basic input and output for BBC are described

    SYVAC3 (Systems Variability Analysis Code, generation 3) is a computer program that implements a method called systems variability analysis to analyze the behaviour of a system in the presence of uncertainty. This method is based on simulating the system many times to determine the variation in behaviour it can exhibit. SYVAC3 specializes in systems representing the transport of contaminants, and has several features to simplify the modelling of such systems. It provides a general tool for estimating environmental impacts from the dispersal of contaminants. This report describes the use and structure of SYVAC3. It is intended for modellers, programmers, operators and reviewers who deal with simulation codes based on SYVAC3. From this manual they can learn how to link a model with SYVAC3, how to set up an input file, and how to extract results from output files. The manual lists the subroutines of SYVAC3 that are available for use by models, and describes their argument lists. It also gives an overview of how routines in the File Reading Package, the Parameter Sampling Package and the Time Series Package can be used by programs outside of SYVAC3. (author)

    MELCOR is a fully integrated, engineering-level computer code that models the progression of severe accidents in light water reactor nuclear power plants. MELCOR is being developed at Sandia National Laboratories for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission as a second-generation plant risk assessment tool and the successor to the Source Term Code Package. A broad spectrum of severe accident phenomena in both boiling and pressurized water reactors is treated in MELCOR in a unified framework. These include: thermal-hydraulic response in the reactor coolant system, reactor cavity, containment, and confinement buildings; core heatup, degradation, and relocation; core-concrete attack; hydrogen production, transport, and combustion; fission product release and transport; and the impact of engineered safety features on thermal-hydraulic and radionuclide behavior. Current uses of MELCOR include estimation of severe accident source terms and their sensitivities and uncertainties in a variety of applications. This publication of the MELCOR computer code manuals corresponds to MELCOR 1.8.3, released to users in August, 1994. Volume 1 contains a primer that describes MELCOR`s phenomenological scope, organization (by package), and documentation. The remainder of Volume 1 contains the MELCOR Users Guides, which provide the input instructions and guidelines for each package. Volume 2 contains the MELCOR Reference Manuals, which describe the phenomenological models that have been implemented in each package.

    Coolant-Boiling in Rod Arrays|Two Fluids (COBRA-TF) is a thermal/ hydraulic (T/H) simulation code designed for light water reactor (LWR) vessel analysis. It uses a two-fluid, three-field (i.e. fluid film, fluid drops, and vapor) modeling approach. Both sub-channel and 3D Cartesian forms of 9 conservation equations are available for LWR modeling. The code was originally developed by Pacific Northwest Laboratory in 1980 and had been used and modified by several institutions over the last few decades. COBRA-TF also found use at the Pennsylvania State University (PSU) by the Reactor Dynamics and Fuel Management Group (RDFMG) and has been improved, updated, and subsequently re-branded as CTF. As part of the improvement process, it was necessary to generate sufficient documentation for the open-source code which had lacked such material upon being adopted by RDFMG. This document serves mainly as a theory manual for CTF, detailing the many two-phase heat transfer, drag, and important accident scenario models contained in the code as well as the numerical solution process utilized. Coding of the models is also discussed, all with consideration for updates that have been made when transitioning from COBRA-TF to CTF. Further documentation outside of this manual is also available at RDFMG which focus on code input deck generation and source code global variable and module listings.

    The Lower Hybrid Simulation Code (LSC) is a computational model of lower hybrid current drive in the presence of an electric field. Details of geometry, plasma profiles, and circuit equations are treated. Two-dimensional velocity space effects are approximated in a one-dimensional Fokker-Planck treatment. The LSC was originally written to be a module for lower hybrid current drive called by the Tokamak Simulation Code (TSC), which is a numerical model of an axisymmetric tokamak plasma and the associated control systems. The TSC simulates the time evolution of a free boundary plasma by solving the MHD equations on a rectangular computational grid. The MHD equations are coupled to the external circuits (representing poloidal field coils) through the boundary conditions. The code includes provisions for modeling the control system, external heating, and fusion heating. The LSC module can also be called by the TRANSP code. TRANSP represents the plasma with an axisymmetric, fixed-boundary model and focuses on calculation of plasma transport to determine transport coefficients from data on power inputs and parameters reached. This manual covers the basic material needed to use the LSC. If run in conjunction with TSC, the ''TSC Users Manual'' should be consulted. If run in conjunction with TRANSP, on-line documentation will be helpful. A theoretical background of the governing equations and numerical methods is given. Information on obtaining, compiling, and running the code is also provided

    Personal computers (PCs) are now used extensively for engineering analysis. their capability exceeds that of mainframe computers of only a few years ago. Programs originally written for mainframes have been ported to PCs to make their use easier. One of these programs is ARDS (Analysis of Rotor Dynamic Systems) which was developed at Arizona State University (ASU) by Nelson et al. to quickly and accurately analyze rotor steady state and transient response using the method of component mode synthesis. The original ARDS program was ported to the PC in 1995. Several extensions were made at ASU to increase the capability of mainframe ARDS. These extensions have also been incorporated into the PC version of ARDS. Each mainframe extension had its own user manual generally covering only that extension. Thus to exploit the full capability of ARDS required a large set of user manuals. Moreover, necessary changes and enhancements for PC ARDS were undocumented. The present document is intended to remedy those problems by combining all pertinent information needed for the use of PC ARDS into one volume.

    The GANDALF computer code was written to calculate neutron dose equivalent given the pulse-height data obtained by using a Linear Energy Transfer (LET) proportional counter. The code also uses pre- and/or post-calibration spectra, from an alpha source, to determine a calibration factor in keV/μ/channel. Output from the code consists of the effective radius of the detection chamber in microns, a calibration factor in keV/μ/channel, and the total dose and dose equivalent in rad or rem between any two LET energies by using the equations by Attix and Roesch [Radiation Dosimetry, 1, 71 (1968)]. This report is a user's manual and is not intended as anything else, and assumes that the user has a basic knowledge of the LLL Octopus timesharing system. However, a very brief description of how the code operates is included

    1992-10-01

    The WISDAAM system was developed to provide quality control over test data associated with in situ testing at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP). Assurance of data quality is of critical importance as these tests supply the information which will be used for development and verification of the technology required for repository implementation. The amount of data collected from the tests, which are some of the largest ever fielded in an underground facility, prompted the undertaking of a major project task to address data processing. The goal was to create a conceptual umbrella under which all of the activities associated with processing WIPP data (i.e., data reduction, archiving, retrieval, etc.) could be grouped. The WISDAAM system was the product of this task. The overall system covers electronic as well as manual data processing; however, this document deals primarily with those operations implemented by software running on a VAX computer

    Pressure vessels are closed containers designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure. They have a variety of applications in industry, including in oil refineries, nuclear reactors, vehicle airbrake reservoirs, and more. The pressure differential with such vessels is dangerous, and due to the risk of accident and fatality around their use, the design, manufacture, operation and inspection of pressure vessels is regulated by engineering authorities and guided by legal codes and standards. Pressure Vessel Design Manual is a solutions-focused guide to the many problems and technical challenges involved in the design of pressure vessels to match stringent standards and codes. It brings together otherwise scattered information and explanations into one easy-to-use resource to minimize research and take readers from problem to solution in the most direct manner possible. * Covers almost all problems that a working pressure vessel designer can expect to face, with ...

    In an evaluation of the Department of Energy (DOE) Occupational Safety and Health programs for government-owned contractor-operated (GOCO) activities, the Department of Labor`s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommended a technical information exchange program. The intent was to share written safety and health programs, plans, training manuals, and materials within the entire DOE community. The OSH Technical Reference (OTR) helps support the secretary`s response to the OSHA finding by providing a one-stop resource and referral for technical information that relates to safe operations and practice. It also serves as a technical information exchange tool to reference DOE-wide materials pertinent to specific safety topics and, with some modification, as a training aid. The OTR bridges the gap between general safety documents and very specific requirements documents. It is tailored to the DOE community and incorporates DOE field experience.

The description is based on the experimental use of STAIRS at the IAEA computer, with INIS and AGRIS data bases, from June 1975 to May 1976. Special attention is paid to what may be termed the hierarchical approach to retrieval in STAIRS. Such an approach allows for better use of the intrinsic data-base structure and, hence, contributes to higher recall and/or relevance ratios in retrieval. The functions carried out by STAIRS are explained and the communication language between the user and the system outlined. Details are given of the specific structure of the INIS and AGRIS data bases for STAIRS. The manual should enable an inexperienced user to start his first on-line dialogues by means of a CRT or teletype terminal. (author)

  16. Nuclear medicine resources manual

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2006-02-01

    Over the past decade many IAEA programmes have significantly enhanced the capabilities of numerous Member States in the field of nuclear medicine. Functional imaging using nuclear medicine procedures has become an indispensable tool for the diagnosis, treatment planning and management of patients. However, due to the heterogeneous growth and development of nuclear medicine in the IAEA's Member States, the operating standards of practice vary considerably from country to country and region to region. This publication is the result of the work of over 30 international professionals who have assisted the IAEA in the process of standardization and harmonization. This manual sets out the prerequisites for the establishment of a nuclear medicine service, including basic infrastructure, suitable premises, reliable supply of electricity, maintenance of a steady temperature, dust exclusion for gamma cameras and radiopharmacy dispensaries. It offers clear guidance on human resources and training needs for medical doctors, technologists, radiopharmaceutical scientists, physicists and specialist nurses in the practice of nuclear medicine. The manual describes the requirements for safe preparation and quality control of radiopharmaceuticals. In addition, it contains essential requirements for maintenance of facilities and instruments, for radiation hygiene and for optimization of nuclear medicine operational performance with the use of working clinical protocols. The result is a comprehensive guide at an international level that contains practical suggestions based on the experience of professionals around the globe. This publication will be of interest to nuclear medicine physicians, radiologists, medical educationalists, diagnostic centre managers, medical physicists, medical technologists, radiopharmacists, specialist nurses, clinical scientists and those engaged in quality assurance and control systems in public health in both developed and developing countries

  17. Manual of radioisotope production

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1966-01-01

    The Manual of Radioisotope Production has been compiled primarily to help small reactor establishments which need a modest programme of radioisotope production for local requirements. It is not comprehensive, but gives guidance on essential preliminary considerations and problems that may be met in the early stages of production. References are included as an aid to the reader who wishes to seek further in the extensive literature on the subject. In preparing the Manual, which is in two parts, the Agency consulted several Member States which already have long experience in radioisotope production. An attempt has been made to condense this experience, firstly, by setting out the technical and economic considerations which govern the planning and execution of an isotope programme and, secondly, by providing experimental details of isotope production processes. Part I covers topics common to all radioisotope processing, namely, laboratory design, handling and dispensing of radioactive solutions, quality control, measurement and radiological safety. Part II contains information on the fifteen radioisotopes in most common use. These are bromine-82, cobalt-58, chromium-51, copper-64, fluorine-18, gold-198, iodine-131, iron-59, magnesium-28, potassium-42, sodium-24, phosphorus-32, sulphur-35, yttrium-90 and zinc-65. Their nuclear properties are described, references to typical applications are given and published methods of production are reviewed; also included are descriptions in detail of the production processes used at several national atomic energy organizations. No attempt has been made to distinguish the best values for nuclear data or to comment on the relative merits of production processes. Each process is presented essentially as it was described by the contributor on the understanding that critical comparisons are not necessary for processes which have been well tried in practical production for many years. The information is presented as a guide to enable

    The operating manual is one of many technical documents which the nuclear power plant operator needs for ensuring safe operation. For the operating staff, however, there is only one document, namely the operating manual. The operating manual is an essential element in bringing man and machine in harmony. This is necessary for safe and, as far as possible, uninterrupted operation of the power plant. The operating manual is the only document containing binding instructions for plant operation. All the tasks of plant operation which are carried out by plant staff are described in the operating manual in a form which is as clear and comprehensible as possible. A considerable number of these tasks can only be carried out by man, namely: 1) tasks concerning operational organization, 2) all non-automated areas of plant operation. (orig./TK) [de

  3. A chimeric protein composed of NuMA fused to the DNA binding domain of LANA is sufficient for the ori-P-dependent DNA replication

    2017-01-01

    The Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) genome is stably maintained in KSHV-infected PEL cell lines during cell division. We previously showed that accumulation of LANA in the nuclear matrix fraction could be important for the latent DNA replication, and that the functional significance of LANA should be its recruitment of ori-P to the nuclear matrix. Here, we investigated whether the forced localization of the LANA-DNA binding domain (DBD) to the nuclear matrix facilitated ori-P-containing plasmid replication. We demonstrated that chimeric proteins constructed by fusion of LANA DBD with the nuclear mitotic apparatus protein (NuMA), which is one of the components of the nuclear matrix, could bind with ori-P and enhance replication of an ori-P-containing plasmid, compared with that in the presence of DBD alone. These results further suggested that the ori-P recruitment to the nuclear matrix through the binding with DBD is important for latent viral DNA replication. - Highlights: •KSHV replication in latency depends on LANA localization to the nuclear matrix. •LANA DBD was fused with NuMA, a nuclear matrix protein, at the N- and C-terminus. •NuMA-DBD was in the nuclear matrix and supported the ori-P dependent replication. •LANA in the nuclear matrix should be important for the KSHV replication in latency.

We demonstrated that chimeric proteins constructed by fusion of LANA DBD with the nuclear mitotic apparatus protein (NuMA), which is one of the components of the nuclear matrix, could bind with ori-P and enhance replication of an ori-P-containing plasmid, compared with that in the presence of DBD alone. These results further suggested that the ori-P recruitment to the nuclear matrix through the binding with DBD is important for latent viral DNA replication. - Highlights: •KSHV replication in latency depends on LANA localization to the nuclear matrix. •LANA DBD was fused with NuMA, a nuclear matrix protein, at the N- and C-terminus. •NuMA-DBD was in the nuclear matrix and supported the ori-P dependent replication. •LANA in the nuclear matrix should be important for the KSHV replication in latency.

    Stem and progenitor cells that exhibit significant regenerative potential and critical roles in cancer initiation and progression remain difficult to characterize. Cell fates are determined by reciprocal signaling between the cell microenvironment and the nucleus; hence parameters derived from nuclear remodeling are ideal candidates for stem/progenitor cell characterization. Here we applied high-content, single cell analysis of nuclear shape and organization to examine stem and progenitor cells destined to distinct differentiation endpoints, yet undistinguishable by conventional methods. Nuclear descriptors defined through image informatics classified mesenchymal stem cells poised to either adipogenic or osteogenic differentiation, and oligodendrocyte precursors isolated from different regions of the brain and destined to distinct astrocyte subtypes. Nuclear descriptors also revealed early changes in stem cells after chemical oncogenesis, allowing the identification of a class of cancer-mitigating biomaterials. To capture the metrology of nuclear changes, we developed a simple and quantitative "imaging-derived" parsing index, which reflects the dynamic evolution of the high-dimensional space of nuclear organizational features. A comparative analysis of parsing outcomes via either nuclear shape or textural metrics of the nuclear structural protein NuMA indicates the nuclear shape alone is a weak phenotypic predictor. In contrast, variations in the NuMA organization parsed emergent cell phenotypes and discerned emergent stages of stem cell transformation, supporting a prognosticating role for this protein in the outcomes of nuclear functions.

  7. Manual on radiation haematology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1971-01-01

    Studies of the biological effects of ionizing radiation have led to the introduction of various measures to protect both the public and personnel engaged in occupations where they could be exposed to such radiations. Many recent studies deal with the basic mechanism of radiation injuries and with their treatment, and some of these investigations have been sponsored by the World Health Organization and the International Atomic Energy Agency. Fundamental studies of the blood-forming tissue have provided the information necessary for formulating recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection. Heinecke in 1903 was the first to note damage to the haemato-poietic tissue after whole-body irradiation. Since that time we have learned much of the functions of the various components of the blood. Many studies have been undertaken to understand the proliferative capacities of the various 'stem' cells involved in the haematopoietic processes and the extent to which these processes can be interfered with by ionizing radiations. We now understand which are the reliable criteria by which radiation damage can be assessed from its effects on the haematopoietic system. In addition, much work has been done to determine how radiation injury to the hematopoietic system may be offset by therapy. In developing countries radiation is being increasingly applied in medical work and many other fields, and there is an immediate need to disseminate information relevant to radiation hazards. This Manual on Radiation Haematology is an attempt at a synthesis of much that is relevant to these matters. As the Contents List shows, many experts have contributed to the book. Their styles have been changed as little as possible. A certain amount of duplication of information could not be avoided; where an editorial decision to remove a passage would have resulted in losing the exact concept that the author wished to express, this passage has been retained.

    1985-01-01

    The purpose of this manual is to describe the requisite sampling procedures for the application of uniform high-quality standards to detailed geotechnical, hydrogeological, geochemical and air quality measurements at Canadian uranium tailings disposal sites. The selection and implementation of applicable sampling procedures for such measurements at uranium tailings disposal sites are complicated by two primary factors. Firstly, the physical and chemical nature of uranium mine tailings and effluent is considerably different from natural soil materials and natural waters. Consequently, many conventional methods for the collection and analysis of natural soils and waters are not directly applicable to tailings. Secondly, there is a wide range in the physical and chemical nature of uranium tailings. The composition of the ore, the milling process, the nature of tailings depositon, and effluent treatment vary considerably and are highly site-specific. Therefore, the definition and implementation of sampling programs for uranium tailings disposal sites require considerable evaluation, and often innovation, to ensure that appropriate sampling and analysis methods are used which provide the flexibility to take into account site-specific considerations. The following chapters describe the objective and scope of a sampling program, preliminary data collection, and the procedures for sampling of tailings solids, surface water and seepage, tailings pore-water, and wind-blown dust and radon

    DIMAC (A DIspersion Metallic fuel performance Analysis Code) is a computer program for simulating the behavior of dispersion fuel rods under normal operating conditions of HYPER. It computes the one-dimensional temperature distribution and the thermo-mechanical characteristics of fuel rod under the steady state operation condition, including the swelling and rod deformation. DIMAC was developed based on the experience of research reactor fuel. DIMAC consists of the temperature calculation module, the mechanical swelling calculation module, and the fuel deformation calculation module in order to predict the deformation of a dispersion fuel as a function of power history. Because there are a little of available U-TRU-Zr or TRU-Zr characteristics, the material data of U-Pu-Zr or Pu-Zr are used for those of U-TRU-Zr or TRU-Zr. This report is mainly intended as a user's manual for the DIMAC code.

  16. IAEA safeguards technical manual

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1982-03-01

    Part F of the Safeguards Technical Manual is being issued in three volumes. Volume 1 was published in 1977 and revised slightly in 1979. Volume 1 discusses basic probability concepts, statistical inference, models and measurement errors, estimation of measurement variances, and calibration. These topics of general interest in a number of application areas, are presented with examples drawn from nuclear materials safeguards. The final two chapters in Volume 1 deal with problem areas unique to safeguards: calculating the variance of MUF and of D respectively. Volume 2 continues where Volume 1 left off with a presentation of topics of specific interest to Agency safeguards. These topics include inspection planning from a design and effectiveness evaluation viewpoint, on-facility site inspection activities, variables data analysis as applied to inspection data, preparation of inspection reports with respect to statistical aspects of the inspection, and the distribution of inspection samples to more than one analytical laboratory. Volume 3 covers generally the same material as Volumes 1 and 2 but with much greater unity and cohesiveness. Further, the cook-book style of the previous two volumes has been replaced by one that makes use of equations and formulas as opposed to computational steps, and that also provides the bases for the statistical procedures discussed. Hopefully, this will help minimize the frequency of misapplications of the techniques

  17. Program management system manual

    1989-08-01

    OCRWM has developed a program management system (PMS) to assist in organizing, planning, directing and controlling the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management Program. A well defined management system is necessary because: (1) the Program is a complex technical undertaking with a large number of participants, (2) the disposal and storage facilities to be developed by the Program must be licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and hence are subject to rigorous quality assurance (QA) requirements, (3) the legislation mandating the Program creates a dichotomy between demanding schedules of performance and a requirement for close and continuous consultation and cooperation with external entities, (4) the various elements of the Program must be managed as parts of an integrated waste management system, (5) the Program has an estimated total system life cycle cost of over $30 billion, and (6) the Program has a unique fiduciary responsibility to the owners and generators of the nuclear waste for controlling costs and minimizing the user fees paid into the Nuclear Waste Fund. This PMS Manual is designed and structured to facilitate strong, effective Program management by providing policies and requirements for organizing, planning, directing and controlling the major Program functions

  18. Stirling engine design manual

    Science.gov (United States)

    Martini, W. R.

    1978-01-01

    This manual is intended to serve both as an introduction to Stirling engine analysis methods and as a key to the open literature on Stirling engines. Over 800 references are listed and these are cross referenced by date of publication, author and subject. Engine analysis is treated starting from elementary principles and working through cycles analysis. Analysis methodologies are classified as first, second or third order depending upon degree of complexity and probable application; first order for preliminary engine studies, second order for performance prediction and engine optimization, and third order for detailed hardware evaluation and engine research. A few comparisons between theory and experiment are made. A second order design procedure is documented step by step with calculation sheets and a worked out example to follow. Current high power engines are briefly described and a directory of companies and individuals who are active in Stirling engine development is included. Much remains to be done. Some of the more complicated and potentially very useful design procedures are now only referred to. Future support will enable a more thorough job of comparing all available design procedures against experimental data which should soon be available.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: comparar e caracterizar o desempenho de escolares com Transtorno de Déficit de Atenção e Hiperatividade (TDAH em tarefas metalinguísticas e de leitura com escolares sem queixa de transtornos comportamentais e/ou de aprendizagem. MÉTODO: participaram vinte escolares do 4º ao 8º ano do ensino fundamental, sendo catorze escolares do sexo masculino e seis do sexo feminino, na faixa etária de 9 a 13 anos. Os escolares foram divididos em dois grupos, sendo o GI composto por dez escolares com diagnóstico interdisciplinar de TDAH e o GII composto por dez escolares sem queixa de transtornos comportamentais e/ou de aprendizagem, pareados com os escolares do GI de acordo com a idade e o nível escolar. Foi utilizado como procedimento a aplicação de protocolo com provas de habilidades metalinguísticas e de leitura de palavras reais e pseudopalavras. RESULTADOS: houve diferença estatisticamente significante entre os grupos nas tarefas de manipulação silábica e fonêmica, como também nas provas de leitura de palavras reais referentes à leitura de palavras regulares e palavras irregulares, bem como para as pseudopalavras. CONCLUSÃO: os escolares com Transtorno de Déficit de Atenção e Hiperatividade apresentaram desempenho inferior nas tarefas consideradas mais complexas, como a manipulação de sílabas e fonemas e na leitura de palavras irregulares, que exigem retenção, análise e recuperação de informação. As dificuldades apresentadas nessas habilidades pelos escolares com Transtorno de Déficit de Atenção e Hiperatividade podem ser atribuídas não a um déficit primário, mas como um fenômeno secundário à desatenção que interferem de forma direta em seu desempenho.PURPOSES: to compare and characterize the performance of students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD in metalinguistic tasks and reading with students without behavioral disorders and/or learning disabilities.

Explorar o efeito da familiaridade e características do estímulo. MÉTODOS: Oitenta e três universitários emétropes ou com correção óptica foram solicitados a procurar por uma letra normal ou espelhada, num contexto de letras espelhadas ou normais, respectivamente. Foram utilizados quatro tipos de letras (Z, N, E e G e os movimentos dos olhos foram rastreados por meio de um sistema computacional especializado (eyetracking. As medidas utilizadas para análise foram: tempo de reação, duração e número de fixações, duração e distância dos movimentos sacádicos. RESULTADOS: A análise em função do tipo de letra mostrou diferenças para todas as medidas. O tempo de reação, o número de fixações e a distância média dos movimentos sacádicos foram maiores para encontrar uma letra normal em um conjunto de letras espelhadas. A duração média das fixações, entretanto, foi menor nessa situação. Houve interação dupla entre espelhamento e tipo de letra para o tempo de reação, duração média e número de fixações. O tempo de reação e o número de fixações apresentam função crescente de acordo com o grau de complexidade do estímulo, com aumento acentuado na situação em que o alvo é a letra normal. A duração das fixações, por sua vez, diminui em função da complexidade do estímulo e da situação. CONCLUSÕES: Foi mais fácil encontrar uma letra espelhada entre as normais, que o oposto, sendo que o desempenho também sofreu influência do tipo de letra. Quando o contexto é formado por estímulos não familiares e complexos, a duração média das fixações é menor, indicando um processamento visual com amplitude reduzida. Desta forma, são necessárias mais fixações com menor duração para um contexto não familiar e menos fixações com maior duração, para o familiar.PURPOSE: To

    The excitation of pulsation modes in Beta Cephei and Slowly Pulsating B stars is known to be very sensitive to opacity changes in the stellar interior where T ~ 2 x 10E5 K. In this region differences in opacity up to ~ 50% can be induced by the choice between OPAL and OP opacity tables, and between two different metal mixtures (Grevesse & Noels 1993 and Asplund et al. 2005). We have extended the non-adiabatic computations presented in Miglio et al. (2007) towards models of higher mass and pulsation modes of degree l = 3, and we present here the instability domains in the HR- and log P-log Teff diagrams resulting from different choices of opacity tables, and for three different metallicities. FAMIAS (Frequency Analysis and Mode Identification for AsteroSeismology) is a collection of state-of-the-art software tools for the analysis of photometric and spectroscopic time series data. It is one of the deliverables of the Work Package NA5: Asteroseismology of the European Coordination Action in Helio-and Asteroseismology (HELAS). Two main sets of tools are incorporated in FAMIAS. The first set allows to search for periodicities in the data using Fourier and non-linear least-squares fitting algorithms. The other set allows to carry out a mode identification for the detected pulsation frequencies to determine their pulsational quantum numbers, the harmonic degree, m. The types of stars to which famias is applicable are main-sequence pulsators hotter than the Sun. This includes the Gamma Dor stars, Delta Sct stars, the slowly pulsating B stars and the Beta Cep stars - basically all pulsating main-sequence stars, for which empirical mode identification is required to successfully carry out asteroseismology. This user manual describes how to use the different features of FAMIAS and provides two tutorials that demonstrate the usage of FAMIAS for spectroscopic and photometric mode identification.

  3. SAM Theory Manual

    The System Analysis Module (SAM) is an advanced and modern system analysis tool being developed at Argonne National Laboratory under the U.S. DOE Office of Nuclear Energy’s Nuclear Energy Advanced Modeling and Simulation (NEAMS) program. SAM development aims for advances in physical modeling, numerical methods, and software engineering to enhance its user experience and usability for reactor transient analyses. To facilitate the code development, SAM utilizes an object-oriented application framework (MOOSE), and its underlying meshing and finite-element library (libMesh) and linear and non-linear solvers (PETSc), to leverage modern advanced software environments and numerical methods. SAM focuses on modeling advanced reactor concepts such as SFRs (sodium fast reactors), LFRs (lead-cooled fast reactors), and FHRs (fluoride-salt-cooled high temperature reactors) or MSRs (molten salt reactors). These advanced concepts are distinguished from light-water reactors in their use of single-phase, low-pressure, high-temperature, and low Prandtl number (sodium and lead) coolants. As a new code development, the initial effort has been focused on modeling and simulation capabilities of heat transfer and single-phase fluid dynamics responses in Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (SFR) systems. The system-level simulation capabilities of fluid flow and heat transfer in general engineering systems and typical SFRs have been verified and validated. This document provides the theoretical and technical basis of the code to help users understand the underlying physical models (such as governing equations, closure models, and component models), system modeling approaches, numerical discretization and solution methods, and the overall capabilities in SAM. As the code is still under ongoing development, this SAM Theory Manual will be updated periodically to keep it consistent with the state of the development.

    Nuclear matrix is a structural framework of important nuclear processes. We studied the effect of two different types of viral infections on nuclear matrix. HeLa cells were infected with human rhinovirus 1B (HRV 1B) or measles virus (MV), and Nuclear Mitotic Apparatus protein (NuMA) and lamins A/C and B were used as markers for internal nuclear matrix and peripheral nuclear lamina, respectively. We show that NuMA, lamins, and poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 are cleaved during viral infection in a virus family-specific manner suggesting that these viruses activate different sets of proteases. Morphologically, NuMA was excluded from the condensed chromatin, lamins showed a folded distribution, and both proteins finally remained around the nuclear fragments. A general caspase inhibitor benzyloxycarbonyl-Val-Ala-Asp-fluoromethylketone (z-VAD-FMK) prevented the nuclear disintegration and the cleavage of the proteins studied. Interestingly, z-VAD-FMK rescued MV-infected but not HRV 1B-infected cells from cell death. These results show for the first time that NuMA and lamins are specific target proteins during virus-induced programmed cell death

    Emissions to air in different parts of the system may arise in biogas plants, where there is biological treatment of organic matter by anaerobic degradation, and during upgrading of biogas to vehicle fuel. There are mainly four reasons why these emissions must be minimized. These are safety, greenhouse gas emissions, economy and smell. This manual gathers experience of several years of work with measurement of methane emissions from biogas and upgrading facilities. This work has been done mainly in the context of Swedish Waste Management's system of voluntary commitment. The purpose of this manual is to standardize methods and procedures when methane measurements are carried out so that the results are comparable between different providers. The main target group of the manual is measurement consultants performing such measurements. Calculation template in Excel is part of the manual, which further contributes to the measurements evaluated in a standardized way. The manual contains several examples which have been calculated in the accompanying Excel template. The handbook also contains a chapter mainly intended for facility staff, in which implementation of accurate leak detection is described, and where there are hints of a system of so-called intermediate inspections to detect leaks in time

    Sierra/SD provides a massively parallel implementation of structural dynamics finite element analysis, required for high fidelity, validated models used in modal, vibration, static and shock analysis of structural systems. This manual describes the theory behind many of the constructs in Sierra/SD. For a more detailed description of how to use Sierra/SD , we refer the reader to Sierra/SD, User's Notes . Many of the constructs in Sierra/SD are pulled directly from published material. Where possible, these materials are referenced herein. However, certain functions in Sierra/SD are specific to our implementation. We try to be far more complete in those areas. The theory manual was developed from several sources including general notes, a programmer notes manual, the user's notes and of course the material in the open literature.

    1986-07-01

    The WAM-E series of mainframe computer codes have been developed to efficiently analyze the large binary models (e.g., fault trees) used to represent the logic relationships within and between the systems of a nuclear power plant or other large, multisystem entity. These codes have found wide application in reliability and safety studies of nuclear power plant systems. There are now nine codes in the WAM-E series, with six (WAMBAM/WAMTAP, WAMCUT, WAMCUT-II, WAMFM, WAMMRG, and SPASM) classified as Type A Production codes and the other three (WAMFTP, WAMTOP, and WAMCONV) classified as Research codes. This document serves as a combined User's Guide, Programmer's Manual, and Theory Reference for the codes, with emphasis on the Production codes. To that end, the manual is divided into four parts: Part I, Introduction; Part II, Theory and Numerics; Part III, WAM-E User's Guide; and Part IV, WAMMRG Programmer's Manual

    Bárbara Gomes Lupetti Baptista

    2017-06-01

    Full Text Available O presente trabalho se propõe, desde uma perspectiva empírica, a descrever, através da observação das práticas judiciárias e dos discursos dos magistrados fluminenses, se (e de que forma o sistema processual civil brasileiro compatibiliza o postulado da imparcialidade judicial, corolário do acesso à justiça e do devido processo legal, com os poderes instrutórios do Juiz, tendência moderna resultante do ativismo judicial, que autoriza a produção de provas de ofício pelo magistrado. O texto busca refletir e problematizar como a imparcialidade se adéqua ao crescimento expressivo do “ativismo judicial”, que divide a doutrina processual brasileira entre aqueles que consideram esse movimento extremamente danoso à imparcialidade e aqueles que aderem a essa tendência, assumindo-a como inevitável e até desejável para o alcance da verdade real no processo. A metodologia da pesquisa associa revisão bibliográfica, análise legislativa e incursão empírica, materializada em entrevistas formais e informais com advogados e magistrados e descrição de casos concretos observados durante trabalho de campo realizado no Tribunal de Justiça do Estado do Rio de Janeiro. Os resultados parciais da pesquisa explicitam a difícil tarefa e os dramas vivenciados por magistrados no exercício de sua atividade jurisdicional, demonstrando que, para eles, nem sempre é fácil situar-se entre o dever de ser imparcial e os ônus de ser um juiz ativo.

    Full Text Available Esse estudo investigou os efeitos do número de vizinhos ortográficos (N e do número de vizinhos ortográficos de maior frequência de ocorrência (NF na tarefa de identificação perceptual. Trinta e dois estudantes de psicologia falantes do português brasileiro participaram do estudo. Os estímulos experimentais consistiram em 64 palavras que atenderam a uma manipulação fatorial 2 x 2 de N e NF. Os participantes apresentaram uma maior porcentagem de erros nas palavras com vizinhos ortográficos de maior frequência e uma menor porcentagem de erros nas palavras com muitos vizinhos ortográficos. Argumentou-se que esses resultados refletem o efeito dessas variáveis no processo de acesso lexical e que os modelos de Dupla Rota e PPD têm dificuldades em acomodá-los.This study investigated the effects of Neighborhood Density (ND and Neighborhood Frequency (NF on visual word recognition in 32 Brazilian Portuguese speakers. Participants were given a standard perceptual identification task in which they had a 3-second time-limit for saying aloud what the target word was. Experimental stimuli consisted of 64 words according to an ND (2 x NF (2 factorial design. Higher percentages of errors were made for words with a higher frequency neighbor and lower percentages of errors were made for words with a high neighborhood density. It is argued that the results were due to ND and NF effects on lexical access and that they pose difficulties for Dual Route and PDP models of visual word recognition.

    Full Text Available The application of an object-oriented framework for task scheduling in the ExPSEE Environment is provided. ExPSEE is an experimental Process-centred Software Engineering Environment. However, this framework can be used in other domains such as Workflow Management Systems and Project Management Systems. The task scheduling framework was based on both current methods for the development of frameworks and on an existing architectural pattern for process managers. A prototype of the framework was developed using the Java Language. It shows the experience of extracting a framework from well-known applications that can be reused in practical domains. The research in current paper contributes in the production of a framework and gives insights in the application of novel techniques towards the development of frameworksEste artigo apresenta a aplicação de um framework orientado a objetos para escalonamento de tarefas no ambiente ExPSEE.

  5. Manual for reactor produced radioisotopes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2003-01-01

    Radioisotopes find extensive applications in several fields including medicine, industry, agriculture and research. Radioisotope production to service different sectors of economic significance constitutes an important ongoing activity of many national nuclear programmes. Radioisotopes, formed by nuclear reactions on targets in a reactor or cyclotron, require further processing in almost all cases to obtain them in a form suitable for use. Specifications for final products and testing procedures for ensuring quality are also an essential part of a radioisotope production programme. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has compiled and published such information before for the benefit of laboratories of Member States. The first compilation, entitled Manual of Radioisotope Production, was published in 1966 (Technical Reports Series No. 63). A more elaborate and comprehensive compilation, entitled Radioisotope Production and Quality Control, was published in 1971 (Technical Reports Series No. 128). Both served as useful reference sources for scientists working in radioisotope production worldwide. The 1971 publication has been out of print for quite some time. The IAEA convened a consultants meeting to consider the need for compiling an updated manual. The consultants recommended the publication of an updated manual taking the following into consideration: significant changes have taken place since 1971 in many aspects of radioisotope production; many radioisotopes have been newly introduced while many others have become gradually obsolete; considerable experience and knowledge have been gained in production of important radioisotopes over the years, which can be preserved through compilation of the manual; there is still a need for a comprehensive manual on radioisotope production methods for new entrants to the field, and as a reference. It was also felt that updating all the subjects covered in the 1971 manual at a time may not be practical considering the

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of epilepsy in multiple sclerosis (MS patients has been a subject of interest for some years. The objectives of this study were to describe the clinical, radiological and electroencephalographic characteristics of epileptic seizures and to calculate the prevalence of epilepsy in a case series of MS patients. METHOD: Medical charts of MS patients were reviewed and patients who had suffered epileptic seizures were identified. RESULTS: Of 160 cases analyzed, 5 had suffered epileptic seizures and one had comorbid mesial hippocampal sclerosis, confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging in a patient with complex partial seizures that began fifteen years prior to her diagnosis of MS. In the other four patients, seizures occurred both during the acute phase of the disease and in the chronic phase. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of epileptic seizures in MS patients in this study was 2.5%, similar to that found in other studies.OBJETIVO: A prevalência da epilepsia em pacientes com esclerose múltipla (EM tem sido objeto de interesse há vários anos. Os objetivos deste estudo foram descrever as características clínicas, radiológicas e eletroencefalográficas das crises epilépticas e estimar a prevalência de epilepsia na EM numa série de casos. MÉTODO: Foram revisados prontuários de pacientes com EM e identificados os casos que apresentaram crise epiléptica. RESULTADOS: Dos 160 casos analisados, cinco apresentaram crise epiléptica, sendo que, um caso, houve a presença de comorbidade com esclerose mesial do hipocampo, comprovada através de ressonância magnética numa paciente com crises parciais complexas iniciadas quinze anos antes do diagnóstico de EM. Nos outros quatro pacientes, as crises ocorreram tanto na fase aguda da doença, como na fase crônica. CONCLUSÃO: A prevalência de crises epiléticas nos pacientes com EM neste estudo foi de 2,5%, semelhante à encontrada em outros estudos.

    Full Text Available http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/2175-7925.2010v23n1p235 A paca (Cuniculus paca é um roedor que se alimenta de frutos de acordo com sua disponibilidade. Este estudo descreve o consumo de frutos por pacas numa área de cultivo sombreado de cacau na Floresta Atlântica do Espírito Santo. Foi realizada a procura de vestígios indiretos deixados por estes animais, como as marcas características dos incisivos, para reconhecer os frutos consumidos. Doze espécies foram consumidas pelas pacas, pertencentes a 10 famílias e 10 gêneros. Essa lista inclui seis espécies nativas e seis espécies exóticas. Alguns frutos foram consumidos inteiros, enquanto que outros tiveram seu exocarpo ou suas sementes descartadas. Os métodos indiretos mostraram-se adequados para caracterizar a dieta dessa espécie e podem complementar os métodos de pesquisa convencionais tais como visualização direta e análises de conteúdo estomacal ou fecal. A ocorrência das pacas na área de cultivo demonstra plasticidade quanto à sua dieta e a possibilidade de conservação de populações dessa espécie em áreas alteradas fora das unidades de conservação.

    Full Text Available This paper is a study of the novel Se um viajante numa noite de inverno (1979. This work was originally published in Italy in 1979 by Italo Calvino. Our study is based in the light of the theoretical framework proposed by the semiotician Umberto Eco, especially from his work Interpretation and Overinterpretation (2001. Assuming that the narrative construction of the reffered 'hyper-novel' of Calvin, we can be approximated to the theory advocated by Eco, the main point of contact between these seemingly distinct authors is in fact that both dedicated themselves to think, incisively the question of the interpretation of literary texts. Thus, the process of the making of the groundbreaking novel Calvin was attractive for further study of the work from a critical analysis and interpretation of the interpretation of the work of these prominent authors. Through the contrast of these books is noticed, especially in the work of Calvin that his main objective was to conduct a review of literature itself. Nevertheless, the comparative analysis of the works exemplified through their styles as different from one another , disruption suffered by calviniana scripture , so that Calvin himself breaks the paradigm of traditional perspective of reading as Eco suggests rethinking the understanding of literary texts going beyond appearance.

    Full Text Available Estudo reflexivo que tem como objetivo enfocar a contribuição da Etnografia para o cuidado de Enfermagem relacionado à obesidade infantil numa dinâmica familiar inadequada. O presente artigo aborda a ascensão da obesidade no Brasil, particularmente na população infantil e tenta compreender de que maneira esta doença pode estar vinculada a características familiares como: sedentarismo, hiperfagia, desmame precoce e padrões culturais prejudiciais à saúde. A reflexão ressalta que, nessa compreensão, o enfermeiro pode utilizar a Etnografia, a fim de entender o simbolismo que exerce o alimento na família e suas repercussões na educação alimentar infantil. Conclui-se que a Etnografia aguça a percepção do enfermeiro, podendo facilitar a implantação da educação em saúde nessas famílias onde a adiposidade infantil surge devido uma conjectura propícia para a sua gênese. Dessa forma, a Enfermagem contribui para uma melhoria da qualidade de vida dos obesos e para redução da morbi-mortalidade de patologias associadas à obesidade.

    This manual describes and provides trouble-shooting aids for the Automatic Sample Changer electronics on the automatic beta counting system, developed by the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory Group CNC-11. The output of a gas detector is shaped by a preamplifier, then is coupled to an amplifier. Amplifier output is discriminated and is the input to a scaler. An identification number is associated with each sample. At a predetermined count length, the identification number, scaler data plus other information is punched out on a data card. The next sample to be counted is automatically selected. The beta counter uses the same electronics as the prior count did, the only difference being the sample identification number and sample itself. This manual is intended as a step-by-step aid in trouble-shooting the electronics associated with positioning the sample, counting the sample, and getting the needed data punched on an 80-column data card

O objetivo do presente estudo foi avaliar o desempenho de ratos com danos seletivos no giro denteado, induzidos pela exposição neonatal a radiação ionizante, na tarefa de NMTP. O grupo irradiado apresentou prejuízo nas primeiras sessões de treino quando comparado ao grupo controle; porém, seu desempenho se igualou ao dos animais controles nas últimas sessões, replicando resultados anteriores. Os resultados são discutidos no contexto da teoria do mapa espacial cognitivo.Costa, Bueno e Xavier (2005 showed that rats with hippocampus dentate gyrus lesions produced by colchicine have post-surgical tests deficits in spatial tasks involving conditional discrimination (non-matching-to-place, NMTP, although repetitive training does promote the recovery of the lamed subject's performance. The purpose of this experiment was to assess the performance of rats with selective lesions of dentate gyrus induced by neonatal ionizing radiation in the NMTP task. The irradiated group showed deficits in the first training sessions when compared to the control group. Nevertheless, the performance of lesion and control groups was similar at the end of the sessions, as previously reported. The results are discussed in light of the cognitive map theory.

    Full Text Available This study aimed to elucidate cortical mechanisms and to identify the areas where occur such mechanisms due to interaction between bromazepam and motor learning. The sample was composed of 45 healthy subjects randomly distributed in 3 groups: placebo (n=15, bromazepam 3 mg (n=15 or bromazepam 6 mg (n=15. To perform the experimental task, subjects sat comfortably at a distance of approximately 20 cm from the typewriter. The typewriter keyboard was covered with a wooden box to avoid visual information about the hands' position. The typewriting task was performed concomitantly with EEG recording. ANOVA two-way results indicated a decreased asymmetry in sensorimotor areas in the experimental groups. Our interpretation is that moderate doses of bromazepam may improve performance on tasks with predictable elements to promote stability of psychomotor functions, but may also impair performance on tasks executed in unpredictable environments.O objetivo do estudo foi elucidar mecanismos corticais e identificar as áreas onde estas ocorrem tais mecanismos devido à interação entre bromazepam e aprendizagem motora. A amostra compreendeu 45 sujeitos hígidos distribuídos randomicamente em 3 grupos: placebo (n=15, bromazepam 3 mg (n=15 ou bromazepam 6 mg (n=15. Para a realização da tarefa experimental, sujeitos sentaram-se confortavelmente a uma distância de aproximadamente 20 cm da máquina de escrever. O teclado da máquina foi coberto com uma caixa de madeira para evitar informações visuais sobre a posição das mãos. O registro do EEGq ocorreu simultaneamente à tarefa de datilografia. Os resultados da ANOVA two-way indicaram menor assimetria em áreas sensório-motoras nos grupos experimentais. Nossa interpretação é que doses moderadas de bromazepam podem melhorar o desempenho em tarefas previsíveis por promover estabilidade das funções psicomotoras, mas pode prejudicar o desempenho em tarefas realizadas em ambientes imprevisíveis.

    2003-01-01

    Full Text Available Foram realizados dois experimentos para avaliar a natureza da informação armazenada pelo sistema de memória visuo-espacial a curto prazo. No primeiro experimento, uma tarefa de localização espacial foi realizada simultaneamente com tarefas intervenientes de supressão articulatória e de subtração aritmética. A tarefa de supressão articulatória afeta de forma negativa a recordação das letras, mas não a dos padrões visuais. Apesar disso, a recordação das letras se mantém superior à recordação dos padrões visuais. Este resultado sugere que o armazenamento dos padrões visuais não utiliza o laço fonológico, e que a tarefa de supressão articulatória, embora iniba o uso do laço fonológico, pode não inibir o acesso à informação semântica. No segundo experimento estabelecemos o efeito da similaridade visual sobre a capacidade de recordação da posição espacial. Os resultados confirmam o uso de códigos visuais e sugerem que a capacidade de armazenamento de estímulos visuais é limitada, mas não se restringe ao efeito de recência.We investigated the nature of the information stored in visuo-spatial short-term memory in two experiments. In the first experiment, a spatial localization task was performed simultaneously with articulatory suppression and arithmetical subtraction tasks. The articulatory suppression has a negative effect on the performance with letters, but not with visual patterns. Despite that, the recall of the letters is better than the recall of the visual patterns. This result suggests that the storage of the visual patterns does not use the phonological loop, and that the articulatory suppression, even if it inhibits the use of the phonological loop, cannot inhibit the access to the semantic information. In the second experiment we established the effect of the visual similarity on the capacity of memory for the spatial position. The results confirm the use of visual codes and suggest that the

Para isto, utilizou como metodologia uma abordagem qualitativa, que envolve a pesquisa de campo com a coleta de dados realizada por meio da aplicação de questionários. Os resultados mostram que no processo de implementação da LAI foi realizado um plano de ações, porém, este não foi implementado, pois o governo federal disponibilizou um sistema de uso obrigatório para todos os órgãos do executivo federal. Em relação às perspectivas dos gestores, o item que parece ter mais chances de se realizar foi “mais transparência nas contas de contratos, balanços, relatórios de auditoria, etc.” Sobre os desafios, o item que mais se ressaltou foi “a falta de infraestrutura dos sistemas de informação e demais tecnologias”. Conclui-se que faltam ações de apoio do governo federal para a efetiva implementação da LAI.

  14. TAP 1, Training Program Manual

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1991-01-01

    Training programs at DOE nuclear facilities should provide well-trained, qualified personnel to safely and efficiently operate the facilities in accordance with DOE requirements. A need has been identified for guidance regarding analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of consistent and reliable performance-based training programs. Accreditation of training programs at Category A reactors and high-hazard and selected moderate-hazard nonreactor nuclear facilities will assure consistent, appropriate, and cost-effective training of personnel responsible for the operation, maintenance, and technical support of these facilities. Training programs that are designed and based on systematically determined job requirements, instead of subjective estimation of trainee needs, yield training activities that are consistent and develop or improve knowledge, skills, and abilities that can be directly related to the work setting. Because the training is job-related, the content of these programs more efficiently meets the needs of the employee. Besides a better trained work force, a greater level of operational reactor safety can be realized. This manual is intended to provide an overview of the accreditation process and a brief description of the elements necessary to construct and maintain training programs that are based on the requirements of the job. Two companion manuals provide additional information to assist contractors in their efforts to accredit training programs

  15. Eddy current manual: v.1

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Cecco, V.S.; Van Drunen, G.; Sharp, F.L.

    1983-09-01

    This training and reference manual was assembled to provide those involved in eddy current testing with both the fundamental principles of the technique as well as the knowledge to deal with often complicated test results. A non-rigorous approach is used to simplify complex physical phenomena. Emphasis is placed on proper choice of test frequency and signal interpretation. Defect detection and diagnosis receive particular attention. Design and construction of probes are covered extensively since probes play a key role in eddy current testing. The advantages and limitations of various probe types are discussed. Electromagnetic theory, instrumentation, test methods and signal analysis are covered. Simplified derivations of probe response to test parameters are presented to develop a basic understanding of eddy current behaviour. Eddy current signals are presented on impedance plane diagrams throughout the manual since this is the most common display on modern, general purpose instruments. The use of Σphase lagΣ in signal analysis is covered in detail. To supplement theory, practical examples are presented to develop proficiency in performing inspections, and to illustrate how basic principles are applied to diagnose real signals

  9. Manual versus mechanical endodontic glidepath.

    Science.gov (United States)

    West, John

    2011-01-01

    This article, the second in a series of 3 articles on the endodontic Glidepath beginning with the September 2010 issue of Dentistry Today (archived articles can be found at dentistrytoday.com), represents an inquiry into the critical distinctions of the endodontic Glidepath. First, we reviewed the need for a confirmed and reproducible Glidepath as prerequisite to rotary or reciprocal shaping. In order to be safe, before rotary shaping, the dentist must always discover that a Glidepath already exists or that one needs to be created. Second, an emphasis was placed on a "finishing checklist" for Glidepath preparation for safe and successful rotary. The checklist is 2 parts: (1) minimum super loose No. 10 file sized k tunnel is verified; (2) the super loose No. 10 file sized tunnel must run from canal orifice through the canal PT to the RT. In this way, patency is preserved and yet the delicate and often fragile cemental anatomy remains undamaged and unchanged, therefore meeting Schilder's fourth mechanical objective of "keeping the foramen as small as practical." Third, we discussed that the question should not be "manual versus mechanical" but rather "manual, then mechanical." Always measure the existence of a Glidepath with manual before mechanical. The key elements for improving your performance of Glidepath mastery include a clear intention of what needs to be accomplished and yet at the same time, restraint; gentleness; copious irrigation with sodium hypochlorite; curved files; randomness; discovery; expecting the unexpected and surrendering to, honoring, and respecting the delicate anatomical structure called the root canal system. After all, nature has been demonstrating how to make a Glidepath for a long time, but we have not been paying attention.

    Full Text Available Este estudo examina a eficácia da tarefa de erro intencional em predizer o desempenho ortográfico de crianças cursando a 2ª e 4ª séries do ensino fundamental. A tarefa de erro intencional consiste na transgressão proposital que a criança faz sobre sua produção escrita. Com isto seria possível avaliar o nível de conhecimento ortográfico da criança uma vez que para cometer intencionalmente um erro ortográfico seria necessário certo domínio da norma. Três regras ortográficas em Português foram investigadas: uma regra morfossintática (emprego dos sufixos oso, esa e eza e duas regras de contexto (uso do R e do RR; nasalização diante de consoantes. Os resultados indicaram que a escolaridade está relacionada tanto ao desempenho ortográfico das crianças quanto à sua competência em transgredir intencionalmente a norma. A tarefa de erro intencional, por sua vez, fornece informação sobre o nível de conhecimento ortográfico que as crianças possuem nos contextos ortográficos que estas consideram como problemáticos.This study examines the effectiveness of the intentional misspelling task in predicting 2nd and 4th graders' orthographic knowledge. The intentional misspelling task consists in the intentional spelling mistakes made by children in their written production. Therefore it is possible to evaluate children's orthographic knowledge since some knowledge of the orthographic rules is necessary to make intentional spelling mistakes. Three spelling rules in Brazilian Portuguese were investigated: a morphosyntactic rule (the use of the suffixes esa, oso and eza and two contextual rules (the use of R and RR; the nasalization before consonants. The results indicated that schooling is related both to children's spelling skills and to their competence in making intentional spelling errors. On the other hand, the intentional misspelling task gives us useful information about children's orthographic knowledge in the orthographic

    2015-09-01

    Full Text Available Throughout the world, iconic rock art is preceded by non-iconic rock art. Cupules (manmade, roughly semi-hemispherical depressions on rocks form the major bulk of the early non-iconic rock art globally. The antiquity of cupules extends back to the Lower Paleolithic in Asia and Africa, hundreds of thousand years ago. When one observes these cupules, the inquisitive mind poses so many questions with regard to understanding their technology, reasons for selecting the site, which rocks were used to make the hammer stones used, the skill and cognitive abilities employed to create the different types of cupules, the objective of their creation, their age, and so on. Replication of the cupules can provide satisfactory answers to some of these questions. Comparison of the hammer stones and cupules produced by the replication process with those obtained from excavation can provide support to observations. This paper presents a manual of cupule replication technology based on our experience of cupule replication on hard quartzite rock near Daraki-Chattan in the Chambal Basin, India.

  19. Home audit program: management manual

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1980-09-01

    Many public power systems have initiated home energy audit programs in response to the requests of their consumers. The manual provides smaller public power systems with the information and specific skills needed to design and develop a program of residential energy audits. The program is based on the following precepts: locally owned public systems are the best, and in many cases the only agencies available to organize and coordinate energy conservation programs in many smaller communities; consumers' rights to energy conservation information and assistance should not hinge on the size of the utility that serves them; in the short run, public power systems of all sizes should offer residential energy conservation assistance to their consumers, because such assistance is desirable, necessary, and in the public interest; and in the long run, such programs will complement national energy goals and will produce economic benefits for both consumers and the public power system. A detailed description of home audit program planning, organization, and management are given. (MCW)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hall, E. J.; Topp, D. A.; Delaney, R. A.

    1996-01-01

    The overall objective of this study was to develop a 3-D numerical analysis for compressor casing treatment flowfields. The current version of the computer code resulting from this study is referred to as ADPAC (Advanced Ducted Propfan Analysis Codes-Version 7). This report is intended to serve as a computer program user's manual for the ADPAC code developed under Tasks 6 and 7 of the NASA Contract. The ADPAC program is based on a flexible multiple- block grid discretization scheme permitting coupled 2-D/3-D mesh block solutions with application to a wide variety of geometries. Aerodynamic calculations are based on a four-stage Runge-Kutta time-marching finite volume solution technique with added numerical dissipation. Steady flow predictions are accelerated by a multigrid procedure. An iterative implicit algorithm is available for rapid time-dependent flow calculations, and an advanced two equation turbulence model is incorporated to predict complex turbulent flows. The consolidated code generated during this study is capable of executing in either a serial or parallel computing mode from a single source code. Numerous examples are given in the form of test cases to demonstrate the utility of this approach for predicting the aerodynamics of modem turbomachinery configurations.

    2017-06-01

    With conflicting evidence regarding the effectiveness of manual therapy calls have arisen within some quarters of the physiotherapy profession challenging the continued use of manual skills for assessment and treatment. A reconceptualisation of the importance of manual examination findings is put forward, based upon a contemporary understanding of pain science, rather than considering these skills only in terms of how they should "guide" manual therapy interventions. The place for manual examination findings within complex, multidimensional presentations is considered using vignettes describing the presentations of five people with low back pain. As part of multidimensional, individualised management, the balance of evidence relating to the effectiveness, mechanisms of action and rationale for manual skills is discussed. It is concluded that if manual examination and therapeutic skills are used in a manner consistent with a contemporary understanding of pain science, multidimensional patient profiles and a person-centred approach, their selective and judicious use still has an important role.

    The Shielded Neutron Assay Probe (SNAP) technique was developed to determine the leakage neutron source strength of a radioactive object. The original system consisted of an EberlineTM Mini-scaler and discrete neutron detector. The system was operated by obtaining the count rate with the EberlineTM instrument, determining the absolute efficiency from a graph, and calculating the neutron source strength by hand. In 2003 the SNAP III, shown in Figure 1, was designed and built. It required the operator to position the SNAP, and then measure the source-to-detector and detectorto- reflector distances. Next the operator entered the distance measurements and started the data acquisition. The SNAP acquired the required count rate and then calculated and displayed the leakage neutron source strength (NSS). The original design of the SNAP III is described in SNAP III Training Manual (ER-TRN-PLN-0258, Rev. 0, January 2004, prepared by William Baird) This report describes some changes that have been made to the SNAP III. One important change is the addition of a LEMO connector to provide neutron detection output pulses for input to the MC-15. This feature is useful in active interrogation with a neutron generator because the MC-15 has the capability to only record data when it is not gated off by a pulse from the neutron generator. This avoids recording of a lot of data during the generator pulses that are not useful. Another change was the replacement of the infrared RS-232 serial communication output by a similar output via a 4-pin LEMO connector. The current document includes a more complete explanation of how to estimate the amount of moderation around a neutron-emitting source.

    1979-01-01

    Between 1965 and 1974, 16 patients were clinically staged as having unique axillary localizations of Hodgkin's disease. Sex ratio (4.3), mean age (40.8 years) and professional occupations (12 out of the 16 patients were engaged in manual work) were significantly different from that of all patients observed during the same period. These facts lead us to suppose the existence of a link between manual work and initial axillary localizations.

    Full Text Available Purpose: To compare keratometric measurements using a Javal type manual keratometer with IOLMaster in eyes undergoing photorefractive keratectomy (PRK for myopia. Methods: In this comparative case series, we studied patients aged 21 to 27 years scheduled for myopic PRK. Keratometry was performed preoperatively and three months after the procedure using a Javal type manual keratometer and the IOLMaster. We compared postoperative measurements obtained by both instruments with the clinical history method (CHM. Results: Seventy eyes of 35 patients with mean age of 23.45±1.55 years were studied. Mean preoperative spherical equivalent was -4.53±1.3 D. Average preoperative IOLMaster and manual keratometric readings were 45.95±1.23 D and 46.32±1.18 D, respectively. Postoperatively, mean IOLMaster measurements was 38.03±0.68 D and that of manual keratometry was 43.15±1.1 D. Compared to CHM measurements, the 95% limits of agreement were ‑5.95 to -0.85 for the IOLMaster and -1.44 to 4.04 for manual keratometry. Conclusion: Keratometric measurements with the IOLMaster and a Javal type manual device are comparable after PRK; both are largely deviant from the CHM and can yield misleading results.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Functional neuroimaging studies using phonological verbal fluency tasks allow the assessment of neural circuits relevant to the neuropsychology of psychosis. There is evidence that the prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate gyrus present different activation patterns in subjects with chronic schizophrenia relative to healthy controls. We assessed the functioning in these brain regions during phonological verbal fluency in subjects with recent-onset functional psychoses, using functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI. METHODS: Seven patients with functional psychoses (3 schizophreniform, 4 affective and 9 healthy controls were studied. We compared functional magnetic resonance images acquired during articulation of words beginning with letters classified as easy for word production in Portuguese. Statistical comparisons were performed using non-parametric tests. RESULTS: There were no differences between patients and controls in task performance. Controls showed greater activation than patients in the left rostral anterior cingulate gyrus and right inferior prefrontal cortex, whereas patients showed stronger activation than controls in a more dorsal part of the anterior cingulate gyrus bilaterally and in a more superior portion of the right prefrontal cortex. CONCLUSION: Our preliminary findings of attenuated engagement of inferior prefrontal cortex and anterior cingulate gyrus in patients with recent onset psychosis during phonological verbal fluency are consistent with those of previous studies. The greater activation found in other parts of the anterior cingulate gyrus and prefrontal cortex in patients may be related to a compensatory response that is required to maintain normal task performance, and suggests a pattern of disorganized activity of different functional anterior cingulate gyrus units in association with psychotic conditions.OBJETIVO: Estudos de neuroimagem funcional empregando tarefa de fluência verbal fonol

    In the absence of endotracheal intubation, the manual bag-valve-mask (BVM) is the most frequently used ventilation technique during resuscitation. The efficiency of other devices has been poorly studied. The bench-test study described here was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of an automatic, manually triggered system, and to compare it with manual BVM ventilation. A respiratory system bench model was assembled using a lung simulator connected to a manikin to simulate a patient with unprotected airways. Fifty health-care providers from different professional groups (emergency physicians, residents, advanced paramedics, nurses, and paramedics; n = 10 per group) evaluated manual BVM ventilation, and compared it with an automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR). Three pathological situations were simulated (restrictive, obstructive, normal). Standard ventilation parameters were recorded; the ergonomics of the system were assessed by the health-care professionals using a standard numerical scale once the recordings were completed. The tidal volume fell within the standard range (400-600 mL) for 25.6% of breaths (0.6-45 breaths) using manual BVM ventilation, and for 28.6% of breaths (0.3-80 breaths) using the automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR) (P < .0002). Peak inspiratory airway pressure was lower using the automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR) (10.6 ± 5 vs 15.9 ± 10 cm H2O, P < .001). The ventilation rate fell consistently within the guidelines, in the case of the automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR) only (10.3 ± 2 vs 17.6 ± 6, P < .001). Significant pulmonary overdistention was observed when using the manual BVM device during the normal and obstructive sequences. The nurses and paramedics considered the ergonomics of the automatic manually triggered device (EasyCPR) to be better than those of the manual device. The use of an automatic manually triggered device may improve ventilation efficiency and decrease the risk of
