    Né le 16 décembre 1891 à Port McQuarrie (Australie), Clyde Cook émigre avec sa famille aux Etats-Unis dès son plus jeune âge. À 12 ans il travaille déjà dans un cirque comme clown et danseur acrobatique, puis fait le tour du monde en présentant un numéro de danse excentrique. On le verra ainsi en 1913 à Paris aux Folies-Bergère dans la revue « Valse éternelle ». Il semble qu’il débute comme clown vedette aux États-Unis avec la troupe des Ziegfeld Follies au New York Hippodrome ; son show dure...

    Full Text Available Although there is no explicit comparison in 'Mason & Dixon' of the astronomer protagonist Charles Mason to the eponymous hero of Shakespeare's masterpiece, indisputable references to the play are to be found in the novel. Mason is endowed with qualities which mirror Hamlet's virtues and vices: he is a leader and a man of education and wit, though his metaphysical longings entice him towards madness and suicide. He is emburdened with a  deep melancholy stemming from bereavement, loss of love, the hauntings of a ghost, indecision, even cowardice and frustrated ambition.

    Full Text Available The essay analyzes the final slow motion scene of Bonnie and Clyde (1967 to demonstrate how the avantgarde reinvention of slow motion poeticized cinematic language in the 1960s and lent a contemporary political dimension to a film set during the Great Depression. The author’s approach combines American neo-formalist theory with Bakhtinian analysis of the Russian formal method of 20s to establish a theoretical connection between the Russian and American theoretical schools. This essay shows how Bonnie and Clyde’s film language developed in accordance with radical avant-garde modes of thought and how avant-garde thought revolutionized Hollywood in the nineteen-sixties. The essay treats such concepts as attraction and affect which have been relevant throughout the whole of film history. Through analysis of these concepts the author proposes that the reinvention of devices provides a kind of new shock which affects spectators and helps to make a breakthrough in film language. Employing texts by Bakhtin and Comolli and Narboni, the author also demonstrates that the breakthrough always contains a political dimension, its goal being to change the audience’s view of a concrete historical time. Choosing the devices to reinvigorate always depends on the political, social and cultural climate of a given historical period. But the development of these devices forms the basis of stylistic innovations in cinema. doi: 10.17748/2075-9908-2016-8-2/1-61-69. [en

  13. Ecological meltdown in the Firth of Clyde, Scotland: two centuries of change in a coastal marine ecosystem.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Ruth H Thurstan

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: The Firth of Clyde is a large inlet of the sea that extends over 100 km into Scotland's west coast. METHODS: We compiled detailed fisheries landings data for this area and combined them with historical accounts to build a picture of change due to fishing activity over the last 200 years. FINDINGS: In the early 19th century, prior to the onset of industrial fishing, the Firth of Clyde supported diverse and productive fisheries for species such as herring (Clupea harengus, Clupeidae, cod (Gadus morhua, Gadidae, haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus, Gadidae, turbot (Psetta maxima, Scophthalmidae and flounder (Platichthys flesus, Pleuronectidae. The 19th century saw increased demand for fish, which encouraged more indiscriminate methods of fishing such as bottom trawling. During the 1880s, fish landings began to decline, and upon the recommendation of local fishers and scientists, the Firth of Clyde was closed to large trawling vessels in 1889. This closure remained in place until 1962 when bottom trawling for Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus, Nephropidae was approved in areas more than three nautical miles from the coast. During the 1960s and 1970s, landings of bottomfish increased as trawling intensified. The trawl closure within three nautical miles of the coast was repealed in 1984 under pressure from the industry. Thereafter, bottomfish landings went into terminal decline, with all species collapsing to zero or near zero landings by the early 21st century. Herring fisheries collapsed in the 1970s as more efficient mid-water trawls and fish finders were introduced, while a fishery for mid-water saithe (Pollachius virens, Gadidae underwent a boom and bust shortly after discovery in the late 1960s. The only commercial fisheries that remain today are for Nephrops and scallops (Pecten maximus, Pectinidae. SIGNIFICANCE: The Firth of Clyde is a marine ecosystem nearing the endpoint of overfishing, a time when no species remain that are

    Thomas, Michael A.; Chitty, Daniel E.

    2011-01-01

    Accurate soil models are required for numerical simulations of land landings for the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV). This report provides constitutive material models for two soil conditions at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) and four conditions of Mason Sand. The Mason Sand is the test sand for LaRC s drop tests and swing tests of the Orion. The soil models are based on mechanical and compressive behavior observed during geotechnical laboratory testing of remolded soil samples. The test specimens were reconstituted to measured in situ density and moisture content. Tests included: triaxial compression, hydrostatic compression, and uniaxial strain. A fit to the triaxial test results defines the strength envelope. Hydrostatic and uniaxial tests define the compressibility. The constitutive properties are presented in the format of LSDYNA Material Model 5: Soil and Foam. However, the laboratory test data provided can be used to construct other material models. The soil models are intended to be specific to the soil conditions they were tested at. The two KSC models represent two conditions at KSC: low density dry sand and high density in-situ moisture sand. The Mason Sand model was tested at four conditions which encompass measured conditions at LaRC s drop test site.

    Plasterers perform a variety of duties including interior and exterior plastering of drywall, cement, stucco, and stone imitation; the preparation, installation, and repair of all interior and exterior insulation systems; and the fireproofing of steel beams and columns. Some of the current potential toxic exposures among plasterers include plaster of Paris, silica, fiberglass, talc, and 1,1,1-trichloroethylene; asbestos had been used by the plasterers in the past. Cement masons, on the other hand, are involved in concrete construction of buildings, bridges, curbs and gutters, sidewalks, highways, streets and roads, floors and pavements and the finishing of same, when necessary, by sandblasting or any other method. Exposures include cement dust, silica, asphalt, and various solvents. Proportionate mortality ratios (PMRs) and proportionate cancer mortality ratios (PCMRs) were calculated for 99 causes of death among 12,873 members of the Operative Plasterers' and Cement Masons' International Association who died between 1972 and 1996 using United States age-, race-, and calender-specific death rates. Statistical significance (P value) of results was based upon the Poisson distribution. Among plasterers, statistically significant elevated mortality was observed for asbestosis, where the PMR reached 1,657 (P < 0.01) with eleven observed deaths and less than one death expected, for lung cancer (PCMR = 124, P < 0.01), and for benign neoplasms (PMR = 210, P < 0.05). Among cement masons, statistically significant elevated mortality was observed for cancer of the stomach (PCMR = 133, P < 0.01), benign neoplasms (PMR = 132, P < 0.01), and poisonings (PMR = 159, P < 0.05). Except for poisonings, which were not thought to be occupationally related, all of the statistically significant results occurred among those members who entered the union prior to 1950. However, the risk for lung cancer among plasterers was still elevated among those entering the union after 1970 as was the

    Wyburn-Mason syndrome is a distinct congenital neurocutaneous entity comprised of ipsilateral arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) of the midbrain, vascular abnormalities affecting the visual pathway, and facial nevi. We report a case and review of the literature of all other reported cases of Wyburn-Mason syndrome (n = 26) in the English literature since 1973. In this review, we report on a 41/2-year-old boy with Wyburn-Mason syndrome who presented with left retinal and orbital AVMs and a ruptured thalamic AVM. The patient did not respond to light in the left eye and demonstrated a left afferent pupillary defect. He did not have any cutaneous lesions. We also characterize other reported cases of Wyburn-Mason syndrome. The presentation of patients with Wyburn-Mason syndrome can vary greatly according to the site and the extent of vascular lesions. Intracranial AVMs occasionally hemorrhage with significant morbidity. Treatment is controversial, and patients are typically managed conservatively by observation. (orig.)

Ahora, en la edad del universalismo, por política se entiende la administración de las necesidades. ¿Cuál es el papel de la Masonería ante el hombre secularizado? A la Masonería se le han atribuido objetivos partidistas: la lucha contra el poder del clero y las doctrinas religiosas, contra la monarquía (pero esto no es válido para las organizaciones masónicas de Gran Bretaña, Países Bajos, Bélgica, Grecia y, en muchos épocas, también para Italia, España, incluso Francia, donde la Masonería fue borbónica y bonapartista, el militarismo (aunque muchos oficiales y suboficiales fueron masones… La comprobación de la autenticidad de los objetivos de las organizaciones masónicas se puede llevar a cabo analizando si algunos masones famosos eran sólo famosos o eran además masones.

    2009-12-01

    Cognition research in Geoscience is the focus of a small group of faculty from the College of Science and the College of Education and Human Development at George Mason University. We approached this research when we were involved in an Institution-wide effort to assess critical thinking, one of the competencies mandated for evaluation by the State Council of Higher Education of Virginia. Our group started spontaneously and informally from personal interests and enthusiasm for what and how our students are learning about Geology and in general about science. We want to understand what our students bring to the course, their attitude towards science, their knowledge of the scientific enterprise and preconceived ideas—and what our students take away from the course, beyond the course content. We believe that, with the support of cognitive science, we can improve the learning experience and therefore enhance the learning outcomes for science and non-science majors alike. Our Institution offers introductory Physical and Historical Geology classes populated primarily by non-science-major undergraduates. Geology lectures range in size from 90 to over 220 students per session per semester, with laboratory sessions averaging 27 students per session. With this large student population, it is necessary to use research tools that give us valuable information about student cognition, while being efficient in terms of time use and logistics. Some examples of our work include critical readings on Geoscience topics, surveys on students’ understanding of science as a way of knowing, exercises with built-in self-efficacy assessments, and concept mapping. The common denominator among these tools is that they are calibrated to address one or more of the higher levels in the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain, which form a complex assessment of student learning processes. These tools, once refined, can provide us with a better view of how our students learn in

  6. Assessment of mercury and methylmercury in water, sediment, and biota in Sulphur Creek in the vicinity of the Clyde Gold Mine and the Elgin Mercury Mine, Colusa County, California

    2013-01-01

    At the request of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, we performed a study during April–July 2010 to characterize mercury (Hg), monomethyl mercury (MMeHg), and other geochemical constituents in sediment, water, and biota at the Clyde Gold Mine and the Elgin Mercury Mine, located in neighboring subwatersheds of Sulphur Creek, Colusa County, California. This study was in support of a Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act - Removal Site Investigation. The investigation was in response to an abatement notification from the California Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board to evaluate the release of Hg from the Clyde and Elgin mines. Samples of water, sediment, and biota (aquatic macroinvertebrates) were collected from sites upstream and downstream from the two mine sites to evaluate the level of Hg contamination contributed by each mine to the aquatic ecosystem. Physical parameters, as well as dissolved organic carbon, total Hg (HgT), and MMeHg were analyzed in water and sediment. Other relevant geochemical constituents were analyzed in sediment, filtered water, and unfiltered water. Samples of aquatic macroinvertebrates from each mine were analyzed for HgT and MMeHg. The presence of low to moderate concentrations of HgT and MMeHg in water, sediment, and biota from the Freshwater Branch of Sulphur Creek, and the lack of significant increases in these concentrations downstream from the Clyde Mine indicated that this mine is not a significant source of Hg to the watershed during low flow conditions. Although concentrations of HgT and MMeHg were generally higher in samples of sediment and water from the Elgin Mine compared to the Clyde Mine, concentrations in comparable biota from the two mine areas were similar. It is likely that highly saline effluent from nearby hot springs contribute more Hg to the West Fork of Sulphur Creek than the mine waste material at the Elgin Mine.

    Full Text Available A finales del siglo XVIII, durante un momento clave de la Ilustración y la consolidación de los estados-nación y sus respectivas sociedades civiles, Europa occidental experimentó un proceso de transformación intelectual y política. Por lo tanto, mi tesis es que en esta coyuntura, la masonería jugó un papel particular y prefiguró el rol que tendría en la vida política del siglo siguiente (XIX, en especial en los países católicos europeos y latinoamericanos con la adopción de reformas seculares y políticas visibles en la historia intelectual de la masonería europea desde la década de 1770. Esta investigación toma como ejemplos de análisis del cambio en la masonería hacia una propuesta a las acciones concretas en la búsqueda de la transformación del Estado, algunas de las obras de Gotthold Lessing, el conde de Mirabeau, Herder, Frederick Schlegel y el caballero Ramsay, así como los casos de las organizaciones nacionales de grandes logias en Los Países Bajos, Gran Bretaña, Alemania y los Estados Unidos.

  17. Using Mason number to predict MR damper performance from limited test data

    Science.gov (United States)

    Becnel, Andrew C.; Wereley, Norman M.

    2017-05-01

    The Mason number can be used to produce a single master curve which relates MR fluid stress versus strain rate behavior across a wide range of shear rates, temperatures, and applied magnetic fields. As applications of MR fluid energy absorbers expand to a variety of industries and operating environments, Mason number analysis offers a path to designing devices with desired performance from a minimal set of preliminary test data. Temperature strongly affects the off-state viscosity of the fluid, as the passive viscous force drops considerably at higher temperatures. Yield stress is not similarly affected, and stays relatively constant with changing temperature. In this study, a small model-scale MR fluid rotary energy absorber is used to measure the temperature correction factor of a commercially-available MR fluid from LORD Corporation. This temperature correction factor is identified from shear stress vs. shear rate data collected at four different temperatures. Measurements of the MR fluid yield stress are also obtained and related to a standard empirical formula. From these two MR fluid properties - temperature-dependent viscosity and yield stress - the temperature-corrected Mason number is shown to predict the force vs. velocity performance of a full-scale rotary MR fluid energy absorber. This analysis technique expands the design space of MR devices to high shear rates and allows for comprehensive predictions of overall performance across a wide range of operating conditions from knowledge only of the yield stress vs. applied magnetic field and a temperature-dependent viscosity correction factor.

Sin embargo, para la década de 1840casi la masonería había sido llevada a su extinción. A pesar de que con el tiempo se recuperó en número demiembros, aunque sea como una de las muchas organizaciones fraternas ordinarias, las preguntas de porqué ycómo el movimiento antimasónico tuvo tanto éxito enla reducción de una hermandad que incluyópersonalidades de la talla de Benjamin Franklin y George Washington siguen siendo aún pertinentes. Enunintento de responder a ellas se he consultado fuentes primarias como periódicos contemporáneos, así comofuentes secundarias escritas por expertos en el campo.

    Objective The best treatment for moderately displaced radial head fractures (Mason type II) still remains controversial. In cases of isolated fractures, there is no evidence that a fragment displacement of ≥ 2 mm gives poor results in conservatively treated fractures. Patients and methods We retrospectively reviewed 52 patients (31M, 21F) affected by an isolated Mason type II fracture, treated with a long arm cast for two weeks between 2008 and 2013. All patients had practiced sports before being injured. They were all either bicyclists, or baseball, boxers, basketball, rugby, tennis or football players. The mean follow-up was 36 months. Elbow and forearm range of motion were measured. The Mayo Elbow Performance Score, the Broberg and Morrey rating system and the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand Score (DASH score) were analyzed. Follow-up radiographs were examined for evidence of consolidation, late displacement, early arthritis and non-unions. Results Flexion was slightly impaired in the injured limb when compared to the uninjured limb (137°± 6° versus 139°±5°) as were extension (–3°±6° versus 1°±4°, p elbow complaints; 9 patients experienced occasional pain, 2 a mild instability of the elbow, and 4 a mild loss of grip strength. The DASH score was excellent in 48 patients (92.31%). In only 6 cases (11.53%) degenerative changes were greater in formerly injured elbows than in uninjured elbows. All patients returned to their previous sports activities. Conclusions Isolated Mason type II fractures can have a good or excellent mid-term functional outcome even when treated conservatively.

  6. Extension of Tao-Mason Equation of State to Heavy n-Alkanes

    2013-01-01

    In our previous paper we extended the Tao and Mason equation of state (TM EOS) to refrigerant fluids, using the speed of sound data. This is a continuation for evaluating TM EOS in predicting PVT properties of heavy n-alkanes. Liquid density of long-chain n-alkane systems from C9 to C20 have been calculated using an analytical equation of state based on the statistical-mechanical perturbation theory. The second virial coefficients of these n-alkanes are scarce and there is no accurate potential energy function for their theoretical calculation. In this work the second virial coefficients are calculated using a corresponding state correlation based on surface tension and liquid density at the freezing point. The deviation of calculated densities of these alkanes is within 0.5%from ex-perimental data. The densities of n-alkanes obtained from the TM EOS are compared with those calculated from Ihm-Song-Mason equation of state and the corresponding-states liquid densities (COSTALD). Our results are in favor of the preference of the TM EOS over other two equations of state.

  7. Fault Detection Using Polarimetric Single-Input-Multi-Output Ground Penetrating Radar Technique in Mason, Texas

    At the Mason Mountain Wildlife Management Area (MMWMA) near Mason, Texas, we conducted a 2D ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey using single-input-multi-output (SIMO) acquisition technique to image a Pennsylvanian high-angle normal fault. At the MMWMA, the surface geology is mapped extensively but the subsurface remains largely unknown. The main objective of our study is to develop a detailed subsurface structural image of the fault and evaluate existing hypotheses on fault development. Also, to develop and apply a new methodology based on Polarimetric SIMO acquisition geometry. This new methodology allows the subsurface structures to be viewed simultaneously from different angles and can help reduce noise caused by the heterogeneities that affect the electromagnetic waves. We used a pulseEKKO pro 200 GPR with 200 MHz antennae to acquire 8 north-south lines across the fault. Each line is 30 meters long with the transmitter starting on the Town Mountain Granite, footwall, with the receiver stepping 40 cm until the end of the line crossing the fault on to the Hickory Sandstone, hanging wall. Each pass consisted of a stationary transmitter antenna and the moving receiver antenna. The data were initially processed with standard steps including low-cut dewow filter, background subtraction filter and gain control. Advanced processing techniques include migration, phased array processing, velocity analysis, and normal moveout. We will compare the GPR results with existing geophysical datasets at the same site, including electromagnetic (EM), seismic, and seismoelectric.

    The Asian rice gall midge (RGM) Orseolia oryzae (Wood Mason) (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) is a major pest of rice, leading to yield losses in Thailand and many Asian countries. Despite an increasing number of reported midge outbreaks and the presence of many susceptible rice varieties, only a few studies have focused on the genetic variation of the midges. Therefore, we analyzed the phylogeography among Thai RGM populations covering north, northeast and central Thailand. Two mitochondrial DNA genes, cytochrome C oxidase I (COI) and 12S, and a non-coding repeat region (RR) situated just before COI were amplified. Overall, the haplotype diversity for COI and 12S genes of the Thai population was high, but the nucleotide diversity was quite low. Altogether, the phylogenetic tree and pairwise F st values indicated that Thai RGM populations recently expanded and were homogeneously distributed throughout the country, except for some populations in the north, which most likely became recently isolated from the main population. Two non-coding repeat motifs, that were recently observed in the mitogenome of RGM in India, were absent in Thai populations and replaced by an 89 bp non-coding sequence. Tandem nucleotide repeats of the sequence TA were also observed. The repeat copy number varied from 2 to 11 and was not correlated with geographical repartition of the midge. Finally, COI barcoding divergence between Indian and Thai populations was high (6.3% in average), giving insights into the potential existence of an RGM species complex in Asia.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The Gag protein of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus, a betaretrovirus, contains a phosphoprotein that is cleaved into the Np24 protein and the phosphoprotein pp16/18 during virus maturation. Previous studies by Yasuda and Hunter (J. Virology. 1998. 72:4095–4103 have demonstrated that pp16/18 contains a viral late domain required for budding and that the Np24 protein plays a role during the virus life cycle since deletion of this N-terminal domain blocked virus replication. The function of the Np24 domain, however, is not known. Results Here we identify a region of basic residues (KKPKR within the Np24 domain that is highly conserved among the phosphoproteins of various betaretroviruses. We show that this KKPKR motif is required for virus replication yet dispensable for procapsid assembly, membrane targeting, budding and release, particle maturation, or viral glycoprotein packaging. Additional experiments indicated that deletion of this motif reduced viral RNA packaging 6–8 fold and affected the transient association of Gag with nuclear pores. Conclusion These results demonstrate that the Np24 domain plays an important role in RNA packaging and is in agreement with evidence that suggests that correct intracellular targeting of Gag to the nuclear compartment is an fundamental step in the retroviral life cycle.

    Full Text Available Budding is the final step of the late phase of retroviral life cycle. It begins with the interaction of Gag precursor with plasma membrane through its N-terminal domain, the matrix protein. However, single generas of Retroviridae family differ in the way how they interact with plasma membrane. While in case of lentiviruses (e.g. human immunodeficiency virus (HIV the structural polyprotein precursor Gag interacts with cellular membrane prior to the assembly, betaretroviruses (Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV first assemble their virus-like particles in the pericentriolar region of the infected cell and therefore, already assembled particles interact with the membrane. Although both these types of retroviruses use similar mechanism of the interaction of Gag with the membrane, the difference in the site of assembly leads to some differences in the mechanism of the interaction. Here we describe the interaction of M-PMV matrix protein with plasma membrane with emphasis on the structural aspects of the interaction with single phospholipids.

    1979-06-01

    The characteristics and requirements of multinucleate cell (syncytium) induction by Mason--Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV) on human and non-human primate cells have been investigated. Multinucleate cell induction by this D-type retrovirus shows single-hit kinetics on human foreskin and rhesus monkey fetal lung cells. The peak of syncytium-forming activity in an isopycnic sucrose gradient coincides with the peak of M-PMV virions as assessed by electron microscopy and analysis of viral polypeptides. Unlike the paramyxoviruses, M-PMV does not induce early cell fusion when added in high concentrations to the target cells. Furthermore, multinucleate cell formation is maximal 48 hr postinfection and the size of the syncytia remains constant after this time. Ultraviolet irradiation of M-PMV reduces its ability to form syncytia and to replicate with single-hit kinetics, suggesting that a functional viral genome is required for syncytium formation. Proviral DNA synthesis and assembly of virions are not necessary for cell fusion since the addition of cytosine arabinoside at concentrations which block virus replication has little effect on multinucleate cell formation. Moreover both multinucleate cells lacking detectable intracellular virus polypeptides, and groups of individual, nonfused but brightly staining cells can be observed in immunofluorescence assays at times when multinucleate cell formation is maximal. Cell fusion is inhibited by the addition of cycloheximide during the first 12 hr of infection, suggesting that de novo protein synthesis is required for multinucleate cell formation. The possibility that the translation of genomic RNA yields a fusion-inducing product is discussed.

    Matrix proteins (MAs) play a key role in the transport of retroviral proteins inside infected cells and in the interaction with cellular membranes. In most retroviruses, retroviral MAs are N-terminally myristoylated. This modification serves as a membrane targeting signal and also as an anchor for membrane interaction. The aim of this work was to characterize the interactions anchoring retroviral MA at the plasma membrane of infected cell. To address this issue, we compared the structures and membrane affinity of the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV) wild-type MA with its two budding deficient double mutants, that is, T41I/T78I and Y28F/Y67F. The structures of the mutants were determined using solution NMR spectroscopy, and their interactions with water-soluble phospholipids were studied. Water-soluble phospholipids are widely used models for studying membrane interactions by solution NMR spectroscopy. However, this approach might lead to artificial results due to unnatural hydrophobic interactions. Therefore, we used a new approach based on the measurement of the loss of the (1)H NMR signal intensity of the protein sample induced by the addition of the liposomes containing phospholipids with naturally long fatty acids. HIV-1 MA was used as a positive control because its ability to interact with liposomes has already been described. We found that in contrast to HIV-1, the M-PMV MA interacted with the liposomes differently and much weaker. In our invivo experiments, the M-PMV MA did not co-localize with lipid rafts. Therefore, we concluded that M-PMV might adopt a different membrane binding mechanism than HIV-1.

Para ello hemos recurrido a analizar la trayectoria de un hombre público, Carlos Esplá, que responde plenamente al perfil esencial del republicano del primer tercio del siglo XX. Se ha querido, otra cosa es que se haya conseguido, demostrar como en muchos casos tal vinculación no respondía tanto a cuestiones dogmáticas, como a motivaciones racionalistas o coyunturales. Es decir, buena parte de los republicanos eran anticlericales y masones, lo que no quería decir que fuesen antirreligiosos, ni tampoco que cumpliesen con los ritos y las consignas del Grande Oriente. Ambas militancias estaban estrechamente ligadas a una coyuntura histórica específica.Through this article we have tried to explain —within the spanish context— the traditional link between republicanism, anticlericalism and masonry. For that reason we have resorted to analise he career of a republic man, Carlos Esplá, who perfectly answers to the profile of the republican of the first third of the xx Century. We have, we don't know if we have succeeded, to show how in lots of cases such a connection doesn't have to do with dogmatic questions as much as rationalistic or current motives. A great idea of republicans were anticlerical and masons, which didn't mean they were anti-religious, ñor that they followed the rites and instructions of the Great East. Both affiliations/tendencies were closely linked to a specific historical situation.

    The Mason-Pfizer monkey virus is a type D retrovirus, which assembles its immature particles in the cytoplasm prior to their transport to the host cell membrane. The association with the membrane is mediated by the N-terminally myristoylated matrix protein. To reveal the role of particular residues which are involved in the capsid-membrane interaction, covalent labelling of arginine, lysine and tyrosine residues of the Mason-Pfizer monkey virus matrix protein bound to artificial liposomes containing 95% of phosphatidylcholine and 5% phosphatidylinositol-(4,5)-bisphosphate (PI(4,5)P2 ) was performed. The experimental results were interpreted by multiscale molecular dynamics simulations. The application of these two complementary approaches helped us to reveal that matrix protein specifically recognizes the PI(4,5)P2 molecule by the residues K20, K25, K27, K74, and Y28, while the residues K92 and K93 stabilizes the matrix protein orientation on the membrane by the interaction with another PI(4,5)P2 molecule. Residues K33, K39, K54, Y66, Y67, and K87 appear to be involved in the matrix protein oligomerization. All arginine residues remained accessible during the interaction with liposomes which indicates that they neither contribute to the interaction with membrane nor are involved in protein oligomerization.

    Full Text Available OBJECTIVE: Recto-urethral fistula formation following radical prostatectomy is an uncommon but potentially devastating event. There is no consensus in the literature regarding the treatment of these fistulas. We present here our experiences treating recto-urethral fistulas. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We analyzed 8 cases of rectourethral fistula treated at our institution in the last seven years. Seven of the patients underwent repair of the fistula using the modified York-Mason procedure. RESULTS: The causes of the fistula were radical retropubic prostatectomy in five patients, perineal debridement of Fournier's gangrene in one, transvesical prostatectomy in one and transurethral resection of the prostate in the other patient. The most common clinical manifestation was fecaluria, present in 87.5% of the cases. The mean time elapsed between diagnosis and correction of the fistula was 29.6 (7-63 months. One spontaneous closure occurred after five months of delayed catheterization. Urinary and retrograde urethrocystography indicated the site of the fistula in 71.4% of the cases. No patient presented recurrence of the fistula after its correction with the modified York-Mason procedure. CONCLUSION: The performance of routine colostomy and cystostomy is unnecessary. The technique described by York-Mason permits easy access, reduces surgical and hospitalization times and presents low complication and morbidity rates when surgically correcting recto-urethral fistulas.OBJETIVO: As fístulas reto-uretrais são de acesso difícil e por vezes complexo, sendo seu fechamento espontâneo raro.

    In support of a study to investigate the history of the Green Valley Fault, 13 cone penetration test soundings and 3 auger borings were made at the Mason Road site in Green Valley, Solano County, California. Three borings were made at or near two of the cone penetration test soundings. The soils are mostly clayey with a few sandy layers or lenses. Fine-grained soils range from low plasticity sandy lean clay to very plastic fat clay. Lack of stratigraphic correlation in the subsurface prevented us from determining whether any channels had been offset at this site. Because the soils are generally very clayey and few sand layers or lenses are loose, the liquefaction potential at the site is very low.

    Private madhouses made a significant contribution to the development of psychiatric practices in eighteenth-century England. Joseph Mason of Bristol, proprietor of a madhouse at Stapleton and then at nearby Fishponds, was part of a dynasty of successful and respected mad-doctors. A deeply religious man, his Christian ethics constituted the guiding force in his work with patients and interactions with their relatives. He was also an astute man of business, who recognized that comfortable domestic surroundings and the achievement of recoveries would enhance his reputation and attract lucrative middle-class custom. His treatment approaches, illustrated in a 1763 diary, were eclectic and pragmatic, comprising various medicines, dietary regulation, graded social interactions, and the cultivation of individualized therapeutic relationships with his patients.

    Objective To evaluate the early therapeutic effects of arthroscopic procedure used for Mason Ⅱ radial head fractures. Methods From October 2006 to October 2008, 36 cases of fresh Mason Ⅱ radial head fractures were treated under arthroscopy by 2 protocols. Group A (16 cases) used prone position, brachial plexus anaesthesia and 4 portals while group B (20 cases) side-lying position, general anaesthesia and 3 portals. After debridement and anatomical reduction, the fractures were fixed by absorbable screws. The range of motion (ROM) was compared at 12 and 24 weeks postoperatively among all the patients.Comparisons were also done between the 2 groups at 12 and 24 weeks postoperatively in the ROM and Mayo elbow performance score(MEPS). Results Fine union was achieved in all the 36 cases without complications. The average ROM of flexion-extension was 128.4°± 12. 7° at 12 weeks and 132.5°± 10. 2°at 24weeks, without any significant difference ( t = 2. 713, P = 0. 539); the average ROM of rotation was 115.3°± 24.0° at 12 weeks and 118.1 °± 19. 3° at 24 weeks, without any significant difference ( t = 5.120, P =0. 778) . No significant differences were found between the 2 groups at either 12 or 24 weeks in ROM of flexion-extension, ROM of rotation or MEPS points ( P > 0. 05). Conclusions Short term results show that a satisfactory functional outcome can be achieved by arthroscopy via proper portals in treatment of Mason Ⅱ radial head fractures. Advantages of arthroscopy are minimally invasive approaches, direct visualization of the fracture and early recovery.%目的 探讨应用关节镜技术治疗Mason Ⅱ型桡骨头骨折的临床疗效.方法 对2006年10月至2008年10月收治的36例新鲜Mason Ⅱ型桡骨头骨折进行回顾性分析,根据不同操作方式分为A组(俯卧位、臂丛麻醉、4个手术入路)和B组(侧卧位、全身麻醉、3个手术入路).其中A组16例,男11例,女5例,平均(37.4±6.5)岁;B组20例,男15例,女5例,

    Full Text Available En este artículo se explora el papel que jugó Porfirio Díaz dentro de la masonería y su relación con dichainstitución. Se analiza una de las historias que comprueban que Díaz logró ciertos beneficios gracias a suafiliación masónica desde antes que fuera presidente de México. Esta historia narra la manera en que Díazlogró entrar de contrabando a México con la ayuda de un hermano masón en 1876, después de su breve exilioen Nuevo Orleans a bordo del buque de vapor, “City of Havana”. En un principio se pensaba que ésta erasimplemente una leyenda más del folklore que envuelve a la masonería. Sin embargo, dos testimonios, ambosde masones que iban en el mismo barco ratifican la historia que incluso el mismo historiador de la masoneríanorteamericana, William Deslow, catalogaba como un incidente, “no verificado.”Asimismo, se describe cómo Díaz promovió la unificación de las logias del rito escocés en unainstitución que se llamó La Gran Dieta Simbólica. La razón principal por la cual Díaz promovió talunificación, como se afirma en este artículo, fue para llevar a cabo su plan de pacificación nacional. Díazsabía que tenía que obtener el control de la masonería para evitar que ésta le causara problemas para lograr elorden y progreso que caracterizó a su gobierno. Por tal motivo, el dictador siempre vigiló que ni la masonería,ni cualquier otra institución que hubiera podido tener cierta influencia en la sociedad estuvieran fuera de sucontrol.

    In rotator cuff repair, strong and long-lasting suturing techniques that do not require additional implants are needed. This study examines the ultimate load to failure and the Young's modulus at the suture-tendon interface for a novel single-loop knot stitch and double-loop knot stitch. These values are compared to those of the modified Mason-Allen stitch. Twenty-four infraspinatus muscles with tendons were dissected from porcine shoulders (twelve Goettingen minipigs). The preparations were randomly allocated to three groups of eight samples. Load-to-failure testing of the single-loop knot stitch, the double-loop knot stitch and the mMAS were performed using a Zwick 1446 universal testing machine (Zwick-Roell AG, Ulm, Germany). The highest ultimate load to failure for the three techniques occurred with the double-loop knot stitch with a median value of 382.2 N (range 291.8-454.2 N). These values were significantly higher than those of the single-loop knot stitch, which had a median value of 259.5 N (range 139.6-366.3 N) and the modified Mason-Allen stitch, which had a median value of 309.3 N (range 84.55-382.9 N). The values of the single-loop knot stitch and the modified Mason-Allen stitch did not differ significantly. Regarding the Young's modulus, no significant differences were found between the double-loop knot stitch with a median value of 496.02 N/mm² (range 400.4-572.6 N/mm²) and the modified Mason-Allen stitch with 498.5 N/mm² (range 375.5-749.2 N/mm²) with respect to the stiffness of the suture-tendon complex. The median value for the Young's modulus of the single-loop knot stitch of 392.1 N/mm² (range 285.7-510.6 N/mm²) was significantly lower than those of the double-loop knot stitch and modified Mason-Allen stitch. This in vitro animal study demonstrated that both the single-loop knot stitch and the double-loop knot stitch have excellent ultimate load-to-failure properties when used for rotator cuff repair.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Se suele pensar que la Masonería es una sociabilidad que se presta a pocas mutaciones debido al fuerte componente cultural de sus orígenes. Esta idea es inexacta si nos atenemos a la constante permeabilidad de las logias masónicas españolas respecto a las cuestiones claves de la sociedad contemporánea. Esta cualidad, más el hecho de que una de las finalidades de la Masonería sea la de contribuir a edificar un mundo mejor para los seres humanos, la ha llevado a convertirse en un receptáculo de ideas políticas y las logias a ser un ágora de discusión. Una circulación de ideas que se completó por una adecuación de prácticas políticas. Nuestro estudio parte de la base de que estas culturas políticas son el fruto de un proceso de modelización que van desde la recepción a la elaboración y la difusión. Así nos percatamos que si la cultura política dominante entre los masones es la republicana, su interpretación es múltiple y su prácticas también lo son. A través de un análisis de lo que supone estas culturas de la República, del paso del liberalismo a la democracia radical y extendiéndonos hasta el humanismo político, constatamos, la movilidad de la Masonería, su integración en redes políticas y la difusión de principios que serán consagrados con el triunfo republicano en 1931. ABSTRACT: It is often thought that the Masonry is a sociability which lends itself to few mutations due to the strong cultural component of its origin. This idea is inaccurate if we hold to the constant permeability of Spanish Masonic Lodges in relation to the key questions of contemporary society. This quality, together with the fact that one of the Masonry’s aims is to contribute to build a better world for human beings, has led it to become a recipient of political ideas and has also turned the lodges into agoras for discussion.

En este punto existe una coincidencia unánime tanto en las declaraciones de principios de las principales obediencias de todas las épocas y países, como en los reglamentos internos de las logias y en las manifestaciones públicas de los masones más representativos. Tal característica podía desprenderse ya de las conocidas Constituciones de Anderson de 1723, auténtica carta magna de la «Masonería Especulativa» o moderna, que al proclamar la neutralidad religiosa y política de la Orden y su sumisión a los poderes legítimamente establecidos, le cerraba el paso, en gran medida, al intento de cambiar la sociedad alterando las estructuras fundamentales de ésta, pero le posibilitaba intentar transformarla cambiando a las personas, es decir, utilizando la educación como instrumento de reforma.

    Full Text Available Objectives:To evaluate and compare the in vitro biomechanical results from two stitches: the Mason-Allen stitch, as modified by Habermeyer; and the locked double-tie stitch developed at our service, on tendons of the infraspinatus muscle of sheep.Methods:Twenty tendons from the infraspinatus muscle of sheep were randomly divided into two groups: LDT, on which the locked double-tie stitch was performed; and MA, with the modified Mason-Allen stitch. The evaluation was performed in the mechanics laboratory, using a standard test machine with unidirectional traction, constant velocity of 20 mm per second and a 500 N load cell, without force cycling.Results:We observed that LDT was superior to MA, for the force needed to form spaces of both 5 mm (p = 0.01 and 10 mm (p = 0.002 and also for the maximum traction resistance (p = 0.003.Conclusion:We confirmed our hypothesis that LDT stitches are superior to MA stitches from a biomechanical point of view. This is a further stitching option for surgeons, when fragile and poorly vascularized tendons need to be sutured, and it improves the quality of fixation without increasing the "strangulation" and, consequently, the ischemic area.

    Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and radial head arthroplasty (RHA) are the most common operative treatments in patients with radial head fractures. The purpose of this study was to determine the efficacy of RHA and ORIF treatments in patients with radial head fractures (modified Mason type III and IV). We conducted a computerized search of five electronic databases from their inception to July 2015. All clinical trials comparing ORIF versus RHA treatment in patients with radial head fractures were included. We evaluated the primary outcomes included elbow functional evaluation criteria by Broberg and Morrey, elbow score (Broberg and Morrey), Mayo Elbow Performance Score (MEPS) and QuickDASH score. Secondary outcomes included Visual Analog Scale (VAS), range of motion, operation time and complications. The "assessing risk of bias" table was applied to assess the risk of bias of the included studies. Eight studies were included in this meta-analysis, which consisted of 138 cases of ORIF and 181 RHA. Methodological quality of the studies was moderate to low. RHA afforded significantly higher satisfaction rate, better elbow score (Broberg and Morrey) and MEPS, shorter operation time, lower incidence of bone nonunion or absorption and internal fixation failure when compared to ORIF. There were no significantly differences in QuickDASH score and other complications. RHA has better outcome in patients with radial head fractures (modified Mason type III and IV) than ORIF with medium-short-term follow-up period, but longer-term studies will be required to ascertain whether the apparent benefits of RHA were offset by late complications.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Por primera vez en la historiografía, se teoriza en este trabajo sobre las influencias, concurrencias e interrelaciones de índole emblemática e ideológica que existieron entre estas dos culturas políticas: la francmasonería y el obrerismo. Para ello el autor, partiendo de un cuestionario de trabajo preliminar, intenta dar respuesta a éste, desarrollando un reflexivo discurso en torno a los probables orígenes causales de aquellas diferentes adecuaciones o asimilaciones iconográficas e ideológicas habidas entre estas dos culturas políticas, como: la acción filantrópica y de cohesión social llevada a cabo por la masonería con respecto al proletariado; la influencia que, en el movimiento obrero, ha tenido el constructo masón-revolucionario ; y la tradición revolucionaria burguesa o liberal, recogida también por el obrerismo, de apropiarse de la iconografía y algunos rituales masónicos para proyectar «instrumentalmente» sus categorías ideológicas. ABSTRACT: This work teorizes, for the first time in historiography, about the influences, concurrences, and interrelations of ideological and iconographic nature, betwen two political cultures: Freemasonry and the Working class. For this purpose, the autor, starts off with a preliminary work questionary and tries to answer it by developing a reflective discourse about the probable causal uses of the different iconographic and ideological adaptations or assimilations between these two political cultures at that time. Such as: The philantropic and social cohesive action carried out by Freemasonry with regard to the proletariat; the influence, that in the Labor Movement has had the construt «Freemason-revolutionary»; and the borrowing Masonic iconography and rituals in order to proyect its own ideological categories in a politically capitalizing way.

    Mason's vertical banded gastroplasty (VBG) is one of the most popular surgical techniques for the treatment of morbid obesity because it is effective and easy to perform and presents a low incidence of long-term complications. In this issue it is reported personal results in 322 Mason's VBG patients who were followed-up radiologically. 322 patients were submitted to modified Mason's VBG and underwent radiological follow-up, preferably with single contrast, to assess the shape and volume of the pouch and the presence of postoperative complications. The patients were 272 women and 50 men whose average weight was 124 kg (range: 78 to 218 kg). The women's average age was 37 years (range: 17 to 69) and the men's 36 (range: 19 to 64). It was performed a double contrast examination, adapting the dosage of effervescent powders to the gastric pouch capacity, only in particular cases where a more detailed study of pouch surface was required. The examinations were performed at 1 month and 12 months postoperatively to evaluate the pouch shape and volume, in order to correlate surgical results with weight loss. Premature or unscheduled examinations were necessary only in some cases due to suspected complications or unsatisfactory weight loss. It was observed that early postoperative complications such as pseudo pylorus edema (8 patients) and intragastric hemorrhage (1 patient), and late complications such as pseudo pylorus adherence to the gallbladder bed (1 patient), pseudo diverticular extroversion (1 patient), and axial enlargement (4 patients) of the pouch. The only two cases of staple-line dehiscence were both identified radiographically. In 305 patients with satisfactory weight loss no complications were observed with a pouch size of 45-70 mL (at 1 month) and 58-70 mL (at 12 months). Upper gastrointestinal radiological studies permit to detect both early and late postoperative complications in Mason's VBG patients. That also provide data on

    Fractures of the radial head and neck are the most common fractures of the elbow, and account for approximately one-third of all elbow fractures. Depending on the fracture type the treatment is either conservative or surgical. There is no absolute consensus regarding optimal treatment for different fracture types. The aim of this protocol is to present the method that will be used to collect, describe and analyse the current evidence regarding the treatment of Mason II-III radial head and neck fractures. We will conduct a systematic review in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Protocol (PRISMA-P) guidelines statement. We will search a number of databases with a predefined search strategy to collect both randomised and non-randomised studies. The articles will be summarised with descriptive statistics. If applicable a meta-analysis will be conducted. Ethical approval is not required since this is a protocol for a systematic review and no primary data will be collected. The authors will publish findings from this review in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. CRD42016037627. Published by the BMJ Publishing Group Limited.

    We determined the solution structure of myristoylated Mason-Pfizer monkey virus matrix protein by NMR spectroscopy. The myristoyl group is buried inside the protein and causes a slight reorientation of the helices. This reorientation leads to the creation of a binding site for phosphatidylinositols. The interaction between the matrix protein and phosphatidylinositols carrying C(8) fatty acid chains was monitored by observation of concentration-dependent chemical shift changes of the affected amino acid residues, a saturation transfer difference experiment and changes in (31)P chemical shifts. No differences in the binding mode or affinity were observed with differently phosphorylated phosphatidylinositols. The structure of the matrix protein-phosphatidylinositol-(4,5)-bisphosphate [PI(4,5)P(2)] complex was then calculated with HADDOCK software based on the intermolecular nuclear Overhauser enhancement contacts between the ligand and the matrix protein obtained from a (13)C-filtered/(13)C-edited nuclear Overhauser enhancement spectroscopy experiment. PI(4,5)P(2) binding was not strong enough for triggering of the myristoyl-switch. The structural changes of the myristoylated matrix protein were also found to result in a drop in the oligomerization capacity of the protein.

  15. A Mason-Pfizer Monkey virus Gag-GFP fusion vector allows visualization of capsid transport in live cells and demonstrates a role for microtubules.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Full Text Available Immature capsids of the Betaretrovirus, Mason-Pfizer Monkey virus (M-PMV, are assembled in the pericentriolar region of the cell, and are then transported to the plasma membrane for budding. Although several studies, utilizing mutagenesis, biochemistry, and immunofluorescence, have defined the role of some viral and host cells factors involved in these processes, they have the disadvantage of population analysis, rather than analyzing individual capsid movement in real time. In this study, we created an M-PMV vector in which the enhanced green fluorescent protein, eGFP, was fused to the carboxyl-terminus of the M-PMV Gag polyprotein, to create a Gag-GFP fusion that could be visualized in live cells. In order to express this fusion protein in the context of an M-PMV proviral backbone, it was necessary to codon-optimize gag, optimize the Kozak sequence preceding the initiating methionine, and mutate an internal methionine codon to one for alanine (M100A to prevent internal initiation of translation. Co-expression of this pSARM-Gag-GFP-M100A vector with a WT M-PMV provirus resulted in efficient assembly and release of capsids. Results from fixed-cell immunofluorescence and pulse-chase analyses of wild type and mutant Gag-GFP constructs demonstrated comparable intracellular localization and release of capsids to untagged counterparts. Real-time, live-cell visualization and analysis of the GFP-tagged capsids provided strong evidence for a role for microtubules in the intracellular transport of M-PMV capsids. Thus, this M-PMV Gag-GFP vector is a useful tool for identifying novel virus-cell interactions involved in intracellular M-PMV capsid transport in a dynamic, real-time system.

    Determining the mechanisms involved in generating large-volume eruptions (>100 km3) of silicic magma with crystallinities approaching rheological lock-up ( 50 vol% crystals) remains a challenge for volcanologists. The Cenozoic Southern Rocky Mountain volcanic field, in Colorado and northernmost New Mexico, USA, produced ten such crystal-rich ignimbrites within 3 m.y. This work focuses on the 28.7 Ma Masonic Park Tuff, a dacitic ( 62-65 wt% SiO2) ignimbrite with an estimated erupted volume of 500 km3 and an average of 45 vol% crystals. Near-absence of quartz, titanite, and sanidine, pronounced An-rich spikes near the rims of plagioclase, and reverse zoning in clinopyroxene record the reheating (from 750 to >800 °C) of an upper crustal mush in response to hotter recharge from below. Zircon U-Pb ages suggest prolonged magmatic residence, while Yb/Dy vs temperature trends indicate co-crystallization with titanite which was later resorbed. High Sr, Ba, and Ti concentrations in plagioclase microlites and phenocryst rims require in-situ feldspar melting and concurrent, but limited, mass addition provided by the recharge, likely in the form of a melt-gas mixture. The larger Fish Canyon Tuff, which erupted from the same location 0.7 m.y. later, also underwent pre-eruptive reheating and partial melting of quartz, titanite, and feldspars in a long-lived upper crustal mush following the underplating of hotter magma. The Fish Canyon Tuff, however, records cooler pre-eruptive temperatures ( 710-760 °C) and a mineral assemblage indicative of higher magmatic water contents (abundant resorbed sanidine and quartz, euhedral amphibole and titanite, and absence of pyroxene). These similar pre-eruptive mush-reactivation histories, despite differing mineral assemblages and pre-eruptive temperatures, indicate that thermal rejuvenation is a key step in the eruption of crystal-rich silicic volcanics over a wide range of conditions.

    A method for the study of oncovirus envelope antigens was developed, bases on the precipitation of intact virions by a double antibody technique. The amount of precipitated virus was then measured as reverse transcriptase activity. The method was designated the virion precipitation test (VPT). It has been used for titration of antibodies to envelope antigens of oncoviruses. The study of envelop antigens of 11 different oncoviruses permitted their differentiation into the following groups: (1) murine type-C viruses: (2) feline type-C viruses; (3) simian type-C viruses; (4) the RD-114/BEV group; (5) Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (M-PMV); (6) bovine leukemia virus; (7) avian type-C viruses; (8) mouse mammary tumor virus. No common antigenic determinants were detected in the last three groups. Mammalian type-C viruses (RD-114, NIH-MuLV, G-MuLV) had common antigenic determinants in the envelope, as demonstrated with an anti-RD-114 serum. Mammalian type-C viruses also shared antigenic determinants with M-PMV. The relationship of type-C viruses to M-PMV decreased in the following order: RD-114--NIH-MuLV--G-MuLV. It was also shown that the endogenous xenotropic feline RD-114 virus was more closely related to xenotropic NIH-MuLV than to ecotropic G-MuLV. The nature of the common antigenic determinants, as demonstrated by VPT on the surface of mammalian type-C viruses and M-PMV, and their significance for the concept of oncovirus evolution are discussed.

    A statistical-mechanical-based equation of state (EOS) for pure substances, the Tao-Mason equation of state, is successfully extended to prediction of the (p-v-T) properties of fourteen natural gas mixtures at temperatures from 225 K to 483 K and pressures up to 60.5 MPa. This work shows that the Tao-Mason equation of state for multicomponent natural gas is predictable with minimal input information, namely critical temperature, critical pressure, and the Pitzer acentric factor. The calculated results agree well with the experimental data. From a total of 963 data of density and 330 data of compressibility factor for natural gases examined in this work, the average absolute deviations (AAD) are 1.704% and 1.344%, respectively. The present EOS is further assessed through the comparisons with Peng-Robinson (PR) equation of state. For the all of mixtures Tao-Mason (TM) EOS outperforms the PR EOS.

    [Objective] This study was to breed rice cultivars with multi-resistance to Orseolia oryzae (Wood-Mason). [Method] The Guangxi local cultivar GX-M001(Jiangchao) with high resistance to Orseolia oryzae (Wood-Mason) was used to hybrid with the known resistance cultivars "Kangwenqingzhan" (harboring GM6 gene), OB677(harboring GM3 gene) from Sri Lanka, HT1350 and high yield and quality cultivar "Guiruanzhan". [Result] Through pyramiding the multi-resistant genes via routine hybridization, the general resistances of the hybrids were remarkably enhanced. The grades of resistance were also improved, many of the combinations were endowed with a resistance at immune level(grade 0); and interestingly, the respective hybridization of GX-M001(high resistance) with OB677(medium resistance) and HT1350(susceptible) also generate two lines at immune level, which is probably the effects of additive effects of genes. [Conclusion] By routine hybridization, multiple genes were successfully pyramided, thus generating novel rice lines with multiple resistances. For the rice breeding scientists at the grass-roots level, the resistance-resistance pyramiding is an effective approach to breed high resistance cultivars.

    2007-01-01

    The purpose of this study is to examine long-term tendon-to-bone healing, by use of a sheep animal model, after rotator cuff repairs performed with 2 different suture techniques: an inclined horizontal mattress suture pattern placed with special arthroscopic instrumentation (HMS) and the modified Mason-Allen pattern (MMA). After a pre hoc power analysis, 18 skeletally mature sheep were randomly assigned to either the HMS or MMA repair technique, with contralateral limbs used for the control group. At 26 weeks, the animals were euthanized. Six sheep from each group underwent biomechanical testing. Load-to-failure and stiffness results indicated no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups. Avulsion of the tuberosity was the primary mode of failure for both groups. In the remaining 6 sheep, histologic evaluation demonstrated that, regardless of treatment, the tendon appeared completely healed in the bony trough. Because the long-term biomechanical and histologic properties of healed tendons repaired with an HMA technique are equal to those obtained with an MMA technique, the inclined horizontal mattress suture may be appropriate for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair. Short-term studies are necessary to determine whether these findings are true early after tendon repair, when failure may be most common.

Masonería, siglo XVIII, Ilustración, historia cultural Abstract Freemasonry rouses an increasing interest among Latin-American sociologists and historians of the religions, international relationships and sciences, for example. During the last years, they regularly stressed its importance in the processes of cultural and religious modernization, particularly during the 19th century. Nevertheless, this question remains very badly known. Her current importance is not doubtful, like shows us the persistent ideological conflict with the Catholic Church, for example. To provide tools for comprehension and critical thought, this text proposes to return to the sources, very little known in Latin

Sociólogos e historiadores de las religiones, de las relaciones internacionales o de las ciencias, por ejemplo, subrayan regularmente su importancia en los procesos de modernización del siglo XIX.

    conclusively attributable to a specific author, it is considered to be written anonymously and should therefore be cited as Anonymous (1891). A number of names in Appendix No. XIII are available since they are accompanied by a brief description of the taxa they denote, and are either attributable to James Wood-Mason or remain with anonymous authorship; others are nomina nuda without a diagnosis or indication, or have been diagnosed previously in the "Natural History Notes from H.M. Indian Marine Survey Steamer Investigator". The nomenclatural implications for eight names made available in Anonymous (1891) are discussed: Glyphocrangon caeca, Glyphocrangon sculptus var. coecescens, Psalidopodidae, Psalidopus, Psalidopus mirabilis, Psathyrocaris, Psathyrocaris fragilis and Psopheticus crepitans. The nomenclatural history of various other taxa, initially denoted by unavailable names in Anonymous (1891), is also documented. The authorships of the various crustacean taxa collected by the Indian Marine Survey Steamer Investigator during the seasons 1889-1890 and 1890-1891, and published in two series of connected parts in the Annals and Magazine of Natural History, are also re-assessed and summarised. A rare document containing the list of R.I.M.S. Investigator stations for the period 1884-1913 is reproduced for the future benefit of the scientific community.

Para alcanzar ese objetivo se elaboraron imágenes sobre cada uno siguiendo la reproducción hecha por la jerarquía eclesiástica, que las retrataba como sectas.

    Various reports on theoretical and observational studies of brown dwarfs (BDs) are presented. The topics considered include: astrometric detection of BDs, search for substellar companions to nearby stars using IR imaging, constraints on BD mass function from optical and IR searches, properties of stellar objects near the main sequence mass limit, search for low-mass stellar companions with the HF precision velocity technique, dynamical search for substellar objects, search for BDs in the IRAS data base, deep CCD survey for low mass stars in the disk and halo, the Berkeley search for a faint solar companion, the luminosity function for late M stars, astronomic search for IR dwarfs, and the role of the Space Telescope in the detection of BDs. Also addressed are: theoretical significance of BDs, evolution of super-Jupiters, compositional indicators in IR spectra of BDs, evolution of BDs and the evolutionary status of VB8B, the position of BDs on universal diagrams, theoretical determination of the minimum protostellar mass, Population II BDs and dark halos.

Remembered for having sealed the folk-heroic myth of 1930s bandits Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, Penn’s film actually did far less to humanize and romanticize the outlaws than did The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde, an allegedly anti-Bonnie and Clyde docudrama shot by Larry Buchanan in 1968.

    Full Text Available Este artículo es un intento de conciliar los puntos de vista de la crítica literaria con los de la historia. Debido a que lafunción principal de una obra de arte literaria no es el de ser un documento que refleje con fidelidad un tiempo o unespacio determinados, por ende no puede ser considerada como un documento histórico. Pero esto no significa que nosea historizable. La posibilidad de su comprensión radica en descubrir el nexo entre el texto literario -contextualizadoen su horizonte- y el mundo que intenta representar. Este nexo se manifiesta en el carácter simbólico de la obra literaria,que sirve de vínculo entre el mundo representado y el nuestro.

  15. Field and Laboratory Data From an Earthquake History Study of Scarps in the Hanging Wall of the Tacoma Fault, Mason and Pierce Counties, Washington

    As part of the effort to assess seismic hazard in the Puget Sound region, we map fault scarps on Airborne Laser Swath Mapping (ALSM, an application of LiDAR) imagery (with 2.5-m elevation contours on 1:4,000-scale maps) and show field and laboratory data from backhoe trenches across the scarps that are being used to develop a latest Pleistocene and Holocene history of large earthquakes on the Tacoma fault. We supplement previous Tacoma fault paleoseismic studies with data from five trenches on the hanging wall of the fault. In a new trench across the Catfish Lake scarp, broad folding of more tightly folded glacial sediment does not predate 4.3 ka because detrital charcoal of this age was found in stream-channel sand in the trench beneath the crest of the scarp. A post-4.3-ka age for scarp folding is consistent with previously identified uplift across the fault during AD 770-1160. In the trench across the younger of the two Stansberry Lake scarps, six maximum 14C ages on detrital charcoal in pre-faulting B and C soil horizons and three minimum ages on a tree root in post-faulting colluvium, limit a single oblique-slip (right-lateral) surface faulting event to AD 410-990. Stratigraphy and sedimentary structures in the trench across the older scarp at the same site show eroded glacial sediments, probably cut by a meltwater channel, with no evidence of post-glacial deformation. At the northeast end of the Sunset Beach scarps, charcoal ages in two trenches across graben-forming scarps give a close maximum age of 1.3 ka for graben formation. The ages that best limit the time of faulting and folding in each of the trenches are consistent with the time of the large regional earthquake in southern Puget Sound about AD 900-930.

  5. Packaging of Mason-Pfizer monkey virus (MPMV) genomic RNA depends upon conserved long-range interactions (LRIs) between U5 and gag sequences.

    MPMV has great potential for development as a vector for gene therapy. In this respect, precisely defining the sequences and structural motifs that are important for dimerization and packaging of its genomic RNA (gRNA) are of utmost importance. A distinguishing feature of the MPMV gRNA packaging signal is two phylogenetically conserved long-range interactions (LRIs) between U5 and gag complementary sequences, LRI-I and LRI-II. To test their biological significance in the MPMV life cycle, we introduced mutations into these structural motifs and tested their effects on MPMV gRNA packaging and propagation. Furthermore, we probed the structure of key mutants using SHAPE (selective 2'hydroxyl acylation analyzed by primer extension). Disrupting base-pairing of the LRIs affected gRNA packaging and propagation, demonstrating their significance to the MPMV life cycle. A double mutant restoring a heterologous LRI-I was fully functional, whereas a similar LRI-II mutant failed to restore gRNA packaging and propagation. These results demonstrate that while LRI-I acts at the structural level, maintaining base-pairing is not sufficient for LRI-II function. In addition, in vitro RNA dimerization assays indicated that the loss of RNA packaging in LRI mutants could not be attributed to the defects in dimerization. Our findings suggest that U5-gag LRIs play an important architectural role in maintaining the structure of the 5' region of the MPMV gRNA, expanding the crucial role of LRIs to the nonlentiviral group of retroviruses.

    The myriad definitions of soil/ecosystem quality or health are often driven by ecosystem and management concerns, and they typically focus on the ability of the soil to provide functions relating to biological productivity and/or environmental quality. A variety of attempts have been made to create indices that quantify the complexities of soil quality and provide a means of evaluating the impact of various natural and anthropogenic disturbances. Though not without their limitations, indices can improve our understanding of the controls behind ecosystem processes and allow for the distillation of information to help link scientific and management communities. In terrestrial systems, indices were initially developed and modified for agroecosystems; however, the number of studies implementing such indices in nonagricultural systems is growing. Soil quality indices (SQIs) are typically composed of biological (and sometimes physical and chemical) parameters that attempt to reduce the complexity of a system into a metric of a soil's ability to carry out one or more functions. The indicators utilized in SQIs can be as varied as the studies themselves, reflecting the complexity of the soil and ecosystems in which they function. Regardless, effective soil quality indicators should correlate well with soil or ecosystem processes, integrate those properties and processes, and be relevant to management practices. Commonly applied biological indicators include measures associated with soil microbial activity or function (for example, carbon and nitrogen mineralization, respiration, microbial biomass, enzyme activity. Cost, accessibility, ease of interpretation, and presence of existing data often dictate indicator selection given the number of available measures. We employed a large number of soil biological, chemical, and physical measures, along with measures of vegetation cover, density, and productivity, in order to test the utility and sensitivity of these measures within various mineralized terranes. We were also interested in examining these relations in the context of determining appropriate reference conditions with which to compare reclamation efforts. The purpose of this report is to present the data used to develop indices of soil and ecosystem quality associated with mineralized terranes (areas enriched in metal-bearing minerals), specifically podiform chromite, quartz alunite, and Mo/Cu porphyry systems. Within each of these mineralized terranes, a nearby unmineralized counterpart was chosen for comparison. The data consist of soil biological, chemical, and physical parameters, along with vegetation measurements for each of the sites described below. Synthesis of these data and index development will be the subject of future publications.

    自从May (1974) 指出即使是简单的种群模型也能揭示混沌动态以来,自然种群是否存在混沌一直具有争论,如何检测自然种群的混沌行为也成为种群动态研究的一个难点.通过时间序列分析和反应面模型建摸的方法分析了马尾松毛虫的复杂性动态.用自相关函数对马尾松毛虫发生的时间动态分析的结果认为动态是平稳的,其周期性不显著,而具有一定的复杂性,这种类型可以是减幅波动、有限周期或弱混沌,波动主要由系统内因引起.进一步采用反应面模型估计全局李雅普若夫指数和局域李雅普若夫指数结果均为负,显示马尾松毛虫种群动态不存在混沌现象,但是在增加一个小的噪音以后,局域李雅普若夫指数变为在0以上波动,说明系统对噪音非常敏感,噪音对松毛虫种群动态具有很大的影响,可以将其从非混沌状态变为混沌.研究结果认为全局李雅普若夫指数λ是一定时间内两个变动轨迹的总平均偏差,而随着种群动态的波动,指数也是波动的,所以对于检测自然种群的混沌来说不是一个好的指标.局域李雅普若夫指数λM能更好地表示自然种群混沌的存在和产生混沌的条件.对害虫管理来说对种群暴发初期的预测是尤其重要的,而此时又最难于预测,所以对种群动态的监测就尤为重要.由于马尾松毛虫的代间种群动态为第一级密度相关,前一代的虫口密度与下一代的虫口密度相关性最强,所以前一代预测下一代是最可靠的.

  20. Towards a universal master curve in magnetorheology

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ruiz-López, José Antonio; Hidalgo-Alvarez, Roque; de Vicente, Juan

    2017-05-01

    We demonstrate that inverse ferrofluids behave as model magnetorheological fluids. A universal master curve is proposed, using a reduced Mason number, under the frame of a structural viscosity model where the magnetic field strength dependence is solely contained in the Mason number and the particle concentration is solely contained in the critical Mason number (i.e. the yield stress). A linear dependence of the critical Mason number with the particle concentration is observed that is in good agreement with a mean (average) magnetization approximation, particle level dynamic simulations and micromechanical models available in the literature.

Thirteen species are recognized, of which five are new and eight were previously described: Khoikhoia anthelion Sharkey, sp. n., K. lission Mason, 1984, K. oligospilos Sharkey, sp. n., K. semiadusta Mason, 1983, K. solata Mason, 1983, K. townesi Mason, 1983, K. turneri Mason, 1984, Sania browni Sharkey, sp. n., S. capensis Mason, 1983, S. henryi Mason, 1983, S. marjoriae Mason, 1983, S. masneri Sharkey, sp. n., and S. masoni Sharkey, sp. n.. All are from the Cape Region of South Africa, and all but one species are confined to the western Cape. A dichotomous key to species is presented; links to electronic interactive keys and to distribution maps are also included. Based on phylogenetic position and morphological characters, speculations on life history are made, and it is suggested that some species may be parasitoids of wood- or stem-boring Lepidoptera. The DELTA data matrix and images for the key are available at 10.3897/zookeys.20.108.app.1.ik; Intkey files are available at 10.3897/zookeys.20.108.app.2.ik; Lucid files in LIF and SDD format are available at doi:10.3897/zookeys.20.108.app.3.ik and doi:10.3897/zookeys.20.108.app.4.ik.

  15. Tra razionalismo e irrazionalismo: l’ombra della Massoneria su Conan Doyle e Sherlock Holmes

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Marco Rocchi

    2012-11-01

    Full Text Available This paper deals with the relation between the works of Conan Doyle (especially the Sherlockian Canon and Freemasonry. In the article the Masonic experience of Conan Doyle is described, as well as the Masonic references in his literary works. Both the life and the work of the Scottish author indicate that in Doyle rational and irrational aspects coexist; if we compare this coexistence with the well-known ‘double soul’ of Freemasonry (due to its Enlightenment heritage and its hermetic and esoteric origins, we can hypothesize that the frequentation of Masonic Lodges should be the key to interpreting this apparent discrepancy in Doyle’s thought.

  2. Environment and gut morphology influence microplastic retention in langoustine, Nephrops norvegicus.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Welden, Natalie A C; Cowie, Phillip R

    2016-07-01

    Over the past twenty years microplastic pollution has been recorded in all major marine habitats, and is now considered to be of high environmental concern. Correspondingly, the number of reports of microplastic ingestion by marine species is increasing. Despite this, there are still relatively few studies which address the uptake and retention of microplastic in wild populations. Langoustine, Nephrops norvegicus, sampled from the Clyde Sea Area, have previously been seen to contain large aggregations of microplastic fibres. The large proportion of contaminated individuals and size of the microplastic aggregations observed suggests that Nephrops are at high risk of microplastic ingestion. In this study the levels of ingested microplastic in populations of N. norvegicus from the Clyde Sea Area, North Minch and North Sea are examined. Animals in the near-shore, Clyde Sea population showed both a higher percentage of microplastic containing individuals and much greater weights of microplastic retained in the gut. N. norvegicus revealed that only a small percentage of individuals from the North Sea and Minch contained microplastic, predominantly single strands. An expanded sample from the Clyde Sea Area was examined to identify the factors influencing microplastic retention. This revealed that males, larger individuals, and animals that had recently moulted contained lower levels of microplastic. The presence of identified food items in the gut was not seen to correlate with microplastic loads. Observations of microplastic in the shed stomach lining of recently moulted individuals and the lack of aggregations in wild-caught individuals suggests that ecdysis is the primary route of microplastic loss by N. norvegicus. Therefore the large aggregations observed in wild-caught animals are believed to build up over extended periods as a result of the complex gut structure of N. norvegicus.

    Coon, Elizabeth A.; Hassan, Anhar

    2015-01-01

    Background References to neurologic disorders are frequently found in fictional literature and may precede description in the medical literature. Aim Our aim was to compare Charlotte Brontë’s depiction of Bertha Mason in Jane Eyre to the tenets set forth in George Huntington’s original essay “On chorea” with the hypothesis that Mason was displaying features of Huntington disease. Results Charlotte Brontë’s 1847 Victorian novel Jane Eyre features the character Bertha Mason, who is portrayed with a progressive psychiatric illness, violent movements, and possible cognitive decline. Similar to Huntington’s tenets, Mason has a disorder with a strong family history suggestive of autosomal dominant inheritance with onset in adulthood, and culminating in suicide. Conclusion Brontë’s character had features of Huntington disease as originally described by Huntington. Brontë’s keen characterization may have increased awareness of treatment of neuropsychiatric patients in the Victorian era. PMID:26273542

    The \\emph{Grism Lens-Amplified Survey from Space} (GLASS) is a Hubble Space Telescope (\\HST) Large Program, which will obtain 140 orbits of grism spectroscopy of the core and infall regions of 10 galaxy clusters, selected to be among the very best cosmic telescopes. Extensive \\HST\\ imaging is available from many sources including the CLASH and Frontier Field programs. We introduce the survey by analyzing spectra of faint multiply-imaged galaxies and $z\\gtrsim6$ galaxy candidates obtained from the first seven orbits targeting the core of the Frontier Field cluster MACS0717.5+3745. Using the G102 and G141 grisms to cover the wavelength range 0.8--1.7$\\mu$m, we confirm 4 strongly lensed systems by detecting emission lines in each of the images.

  20. Information technology and ethics: An exploratory factor analysis

    Ethical dilemmas are situations in which a decision results in unpleasant consequences. The unpleasant consequences are treated as a zero-sum game in which someone always loses. Introducing information technology (IT) to a situation makes the recognition of a potential loser more abstract and difficult to identify, thus an ethical dilemma may go unrecognized. The computer mediates the human relationship which causes a lost sense of contact with a person at the other end of the computer connection. In 1986, Richard O. Mason published an essay identifying privacy, accuracy, property, and Access (PAPA) as the four main ethical issues of the information age. Anecdotes for each issue describe the injured party`s perspective to identify consequences resulting from unethical use of information and information technology. This research sought to validate Mason`s social issues empirically, but with distinct differences. Mason defined issues to raise awareness and initiate debate on the need for a social agenda; our focus is on individual computer users and the attitudes they hold about ethical behavior in computer use. This study examined the attitudes of the computer user who experiences the ethical dilemma to determine the extent to which ethical components are recognized, and whether Mason`s issues form recognizable constructs.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Jeffrey Tyssens

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available During the 19 th century, death was a conflict between the Belgian Freemasonry and the Catholic Church. After the episcopal condemnation of 1837, Masons were denied the privilege to receive their last rites and have a religious ceremony at their funeral. As a result, they started to organize civil funerals, an attitude developed in parallel to spirituality, then in relation to the choice between agnosticism and atheism. The funerals that took place in the Masonic lodges accompanied this process. The Masonic funeral ritual simultaneously was identified as a healing ritual and a rite of passage. While the Masonic ritual was taking place during this century, the exegesis of the ritual dimension brought differing interpretations of such symbolic acts that had not registered any change. In the conflict over the death bed and funeral of the Masons, The Masonic ritual contributed to the development of anti-secular funeral culture in which the construction of an alternative was essential. Thus, the Catholic monopoly on these important aspects of everyday life would definitely be broken, both on the level of public acts, as well as the symbolic funeral.

  2. Evaluation of surface layer flux parameterizations using in-situ observations

    2017-09-01

    Appropriate calculation of surface turbulent fluxes between the atmosphere and the underlying ocean/land surface is one of the major challenges in geosciences. In practice, the surface turbulent fluxes are estimated from the mean surface meteorological variables based on the bulk transfer model combined with the Monnin-Obukhov Similarity (MOS) theory. Few studies have been done to examine the extent to which such a flux parameterization can be applied to different weather and surface conditions. A novel validation method is developed in this study to evaluate the surface flux parameterization using in-situ observations collected at a station off the coast of Gulf of Mexico. The main findings are: (a) the theoretical prediction that uses MOS theory does not match well with those directly computed from the observations. (b) The largest spread in exchange coefficients is shown in strong stable conditions with calm winds. (c) Large turbulent eddies, which depend strongly on the mean flow pattern and surface conditions, tend to break the constant flux assumption in the surface layer.

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available La masonería adopta el mito del Templo de Salomón, tomando a Hiram Abif como héroe constructor. Sus metáforas giran alrededor de la idea del Templo, del centro y del hombre; pero no siempre son lo mismo. El mito depende de quiénes y cómo lo cuentan, incluso en las liturgias masónicas. En México, se tiene la idea de que la masonería, en sus postulados y en su tradición, es una asociación antirreligiosa, opuesta totalmente a la Iglesia católica. No obstante, la masonería tiene en su tradición un gran soporte mítico de la tradición judeocristiana. Ésta es la hipótesis: la masonería es una institución que realiza una lectura apócrifa de las tradiciones judeocristianas, pero no es una institución que base su mito en contra de dichas tradiciones, la única distancia que existe entre la Iglesia católica y la masonería es el factor institucional, no mítico. La hipótesis será demostrada a partir de un análisis mitocrítico y hermenéutico.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Fractures of the proximal radius need to be classified in an appropriate and reproducible manner. The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of the three most widely used classification systems. Methods Elbow radiographs images of patients with proximal radius fractures were classified according to Mason, Morrey, and Arbeitsgemeinschaft für osteosynthesefragen/Association for the Study of Internal Fixation (AO/ASIF classifications by four observers with different experience with this subject to assess their intra- and inter-observer agreement. Each observer analyzed the images on three different occasions on a computer with numerical sequence randomly altered. Results We found that intra-observer agreement of Mason and Morrey classifications were satisfactory (κ = 0.582 and 0.554, respectively, while the AO/ASIF classification had poor intra-observer agreement (κ = 0.483. Inter-observer agreement was higher in the Mason (κ = 0.429-0.560 and Morrey (κ = 0.319-0.487 classifications than in the AO/ASIF classification (κ = 0.250-0.478, which showed poor reliability. Conclusion Inter- and intra-observer agreement of the Mason and Morey classifications showed overall satisfactory reliability when compared to the AO/ASIF system. The Mason classification is the most reliable system.

  6. Community-based sea ice thickness observatories in the Arctic

    The thickness of sea ice is a fundamental diagnostic variable for assessing the state of the ice cover. At the scale of the Arctic Basin, the ice thickness distribution determines the volume of the ice pack and its susceptibility to a warming climate as well as affecting the exchange of heat between the ocean and atmosphere. At the local scale, it dictates where and when it is safe to travel on the ice or through the water. Measuring the thickness of sea ice is challenging both technically and logistically and any measurement program strikes a balance between cost and coverage accordingly. Accurately measuring the thickness of large areas of sea ice generally requires airplanes, ice breakers or submarines and electromagnetic or acoustic devices. In this study, we use one of the least technical methods combined with support from remote communities to establish a set of sea ice observation stations in Barrow (Alaska), Clyde River (Baffin Island, Nunavut) and Qaanaaq (northwest Greenland). We employ hunters from these communities, who are experts in traveling and working on the ice, and train them to deploy ice observation stations and take measurements. Each station consists of snow stakes and hot-wire ice thickness gauges and the local observers take measurements on a weekly basis. Involvement of the community is fundamental to the success of these measurement programs and ensures the data collected are relevant to the local use of the sea ice. Community elders and hunters chose the station locations according to where they hunt and travel and to be representative of local variability. As partners in research, the scientists and local hunters are able to share and synthesize their knowledge; the scientific community gains a better understanding of the extraordinary depth of traditional knowledge and the communities improve their understanding of global changes and ability to adapt. Here we present data from observation stations near Clyde River and Qaanaaq. At Clyde

    Screen violence continues to be marked by strategies that emerged in the late 1960s – what Arthur Penn called the ‘ballet of blood’ in films like Bonnie and Clyde and the Wild Bunch – specifically, a combination of temporal elasticity, graphic detail, and the flamboyant elaboration of the physical effects of violence. Yet the affordances of computer-generated images appear to be intensifying these strategies. Today audiences are, in Sean Cubitt’s words, ‘connoisseurs of compositing’ (2013) th...

  14. Particle Capture Efficiency in a Multi-Wire Model for High Gradient Magnetic Separation

    CERN Document Server

    Eisenträger, Almut; Griffiths, Ian M

    2014-01-01

    High gradient magnetic separation (HGMS) is an efficient way to remove magnetic and paramagnetic particles, such as heavy metals, from waste water. As the suspension flows through a magnetized filter mesh, high magnetic gradients around the wires attract and capture the particles, removing them from the fluid. We model such a system by considering the motion of a paramagnetic tracer particle through a periodic array of magnetized cylinders. We show that there is a critical Mason number (ratio of viscous to magnetic forces) below which the particle is captured irrespective of its initial position in the array. Above this threshold, particle capture is only partially successful and depends on the particle's entry position. We determine the relationship between the critical Mason number and the system geometry using numerical and asymptotic calculations. If a capture efficiency below 100% is sufficient, our results demonstrate how operating the HGMS system above the critical Mason number but with multiple separa...

    Suppose that your house needs some restoration, and that you call a master mason asking for an estimate. If the mason replies at once that he will quote 1000 € for himself, plus 500 € for each helper apprentice, you will likely be puzzled, if not annoyed. Surely you have good reasons to complain, reasoning that the job you ask for should be remunerated with a fixed amount, irrespective of the number of labourers involved. Yet, this is not a criterion that we usually apply when evaluating the CV of an applicant for an academic position or for a grant.

    This study examines 32 patients operated for radial head fractures, mean age 48.7 years (range 26-76 years), Mason type II in 25 cases and Mason type III with 3 main fragments in 7 cases. Fractures were surgically reduced and fixed with Herbert's (12 cases) or Osteomed (20 cases) cannulated screws. The latter have a head that is prono-supination. In addition, suturing of the annular ligament and the joint capsule is made easier by the reduced invasiveness of screws. Screw treatment is effective in non-comminuted fractures of the radial head.

  1. Application and sensitivity testing of a eutrophication assessment method on coastal systems in the United States and European Union.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Ferreira, João Gomes; Bricker, Suzanne B; Simas, Teresa Castro

    2007-03-01

    The Assessment of Estuarine Trophic Status (ASSETS) screening model has been extended to allow its application to both estuarine and coastal systems. The model, which combines elements of pressure, state and response, was tested on four systems: Maryland Coastal Bays and Long Island Sound in the United States and The Firth of Clyde (Scotland) and Tagus Estuary (Portugal) in the European Union. The overall scores were: Maryland Coastal Bays: Bad; Firth of Clyde: Poor; Tagus Estuary: Good. Long Island Sound was modelled along a timeline, using 1991 data (score: Bad) and 2002 data (score: Moderate). The improvement registered for Long Island Sound is a consequence of the reduction in nutrient loading, and the ASSETS score changed accordingly. The two main areas where developments are needed are (a) In the definition of type-specific ranges for eutrophication parameters, due to the recognition that natural or pristine conditions may vary widely, and the use of a uniform set of thresholds artificially penalizes some systems and potentially leads to misclassification; (b) In the definition and quantification of measures which will result in an improved state through a change in pressures, as well as in the definition of appropriate metrics through which response may be assessed. One possibility is the use of detailed research models where different response scenarios potentially produce changes in pressure and state. These outputs may be used to drive screening models and analyze the suitability of candidate metrics for evaluating management options.

    2012-01-01

    Manual material handling (MMH) is unavoidable because of the nature of jobs or tasks as and man-machine interfaces in a construction worksystem. Data were collected from six strata of workers viz., masons, mason helpers, carpenters, welders, gas cutters and ground-level helpers (259 out of 700 workers) from a construction site of a steel plant located in India to analyze different types of occupational risk factors, such as awkward posture, repetitive movements and others associated with MMH activities to assess their impact on musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). It is essential that these risk factors are required to be under control through application of ergonomics-based design approaches for construction worksystem. In this context, multinomial logistic regression analyses were used to identify the significant risk factors among the workers. The results shows that masons, mason helpers, carpenters, welders/gas cutters and ground-level helpers are greatly affected by static body posture, type of tools used, excessive stress due to repetition, awkward postures and extreme climate, respectively. Appropriate preventive and corrective measures are suggested for minimization of risks associated with such jobs/tasks to improve health and performance of the workers.

  4. The Early Outcomes with Titanium Radial Head Implants in the Treatment of Radial Head Comminuted Fractures

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2007-01-01

    The study assessed the early functional outcomes with cemented titanium implants of ra- dius in the treatment of comminuted fractures of radial heads. The functional outcomes of arthro- plasty with cemented titanium implants of radius in the treatment of radial head fractures (Mason Type Ⅲ: 6; Mason Type Ⅳ: 4) in l0 consecutive patients (mean age, 38 years) were evaluated over a mean time of 23.7 months (18-31 months). The patients were assessed on the basis of physical ex- amination, functional rating (Mayo) and radiographic findings. The parameters evaluated included motion, stability, pain, and grip strength. Five patients were considered to have excellent results, 4 patients had good results and 1 patient had fairly good results. There were no cases of infection, prosthetic failure, heterotopic ossification or dislocation. When medial collateral ligament was injured, radial head became the main stabilizing structure of the elbow. Titanium radial head implant may provide the stability similar to that of native radial head. We believe that titanium radial head im- plants may be indicated for the Mason Type Ⅲ and Mason Type Ⅳ radial head fractures.
