  8. Newsletter '77 in stereology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ondracek, G.

    1977-12-01

    There are three groups of contributions forming the present Newsletter in Stereology which are such of theoretical type, stereological activities in bio-sciences and quatitative image analysis in materials science. The report is introduced by two papers treating theoretical problems as the definition of particle size based on the total curvature and the definition of pattern recognition categories. It than follows a summarizing description and comparison of alternative techniques used to measure and conclude stereological parameters in bio-sciences. The discussion includes the sample preparation, semi- and complete automatic measuring procedures as well as the computation of primary data. The biological part ends by considering the use of those quantitative microscopical methods to investigate and classify foreign compounds inside the human liver stereologically. The materials science part reports about tests made on steel specimens to evaluate the accuracy of automatic microstructural analyses and about the use of image 'erosion' and 'dilatation' to measure microstructural parameters automatically. The last subject is part of a serie on morphology in quantitative metallography started in the previous Newsletter '76. The last paper on materials sciences considers the use of stereology and microstructural analysis in respect to a quality control, choosing WC-Co hardmetals as an example, where stereologically defined microstructural parameters do not serve only to describe microstructures quantitatively but also provide a usefull tool to determine properties indirectly.

    In previous newsletters we have focussed on some aspects of the Section's work such as EXFOR or Atomic and Molecular data. In the current one there are details of the work of the Nuclear Data Development Unit. A major event in the last six months has been the Nuclear Data for Science and Technology ND2013 Conference held in New York, USA. High attendance and high quality of papers indicate the continuing interest in nuclear data worldwide. An area of current discussion is new representations of the familiar data formats established for all data files, evaluated reaction data, experimental reaction data and evaluated structure data. One possibility is the use of XML and this is being discussed in various international fora. Feedback from readers on this topic is very much welcomed

  16. SSDL newsletter. No. 43

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2000-07-01

    The main article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter deals with the calibration of low energy photon sources and beta-ray brachytherapy sources. It contains guidelines to SSDLs and hospital physicists for the calibration of these sources. The report has been prepared in close collaboration with the ICRU Report Committee on this subject, who is also planning to publish a report on the calibration of these types of sources. During the sixties and seventies, the IAEA published documents on computerized radiotherapy dose calculations, such as TRS-8 on Single-Field Isodose Charts for High-Energy Radiation (1962) and the 4 Volumes of the ''Atlas of Radiation Dose Distributions'' (1965-1972). During the eighties and nineties, no document was published by the IAEA in this field, even if major developments had occurred in that period. Specifically, fast computers and powerful Monte Carlo systems and application codes, addressed to radiotherapy treatment planning, were developed with the aim to provide sufficiently accurate dose calculations and great increases in speed. A consultants' meeting was held at the IAEA with a group of experts in the field to discuss current needs and trends, and to make recommendations to the IAEA. The consultants emphasized the need for the IAEA to play an active role in this field. Their full report is the second article of this Newsletter. Four new SSDLs have recently joined our Network: these are from Germany, Greece, Ethiopia and Vietnam. They have been added to the database of the IAEA/WHO Network of SSDLs and are listed on pages 44-45 of Member Laboratories

    The Collider-Accelerator Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory is building a high-brightness 500 mA capable Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) as one of its main R&D thrusts towards eRHIC, the polarized electron - hadron collider as an upgrade of the operating RHIC facility. The ERL is in final assembly stages, with injection commisioning starting in October 2012. The objective of this ERL is to serve as a platform for R&D into high current ERL, in particular issues of halo generation and control, Higher-Order Mode (HOM) issues, coherent emissions for the beam and high-brightness, high-power beam generation and preservation. The R&D ERL features a superconducting laser-photocathode RF gun with a high quantum efficiency photoccathode served with a load-lock cathode delivery system, a highly damped 5-cell accelerating cavity, a highly flexible single-pass loop and a comprehensive system of beam instrumentation. In this ICFA Beam Dynamics Newsletter article we will describe the ERL in a degree of detail that is not usually found in regular publications. We will discuss the various systems of the ERL, following the electrons from the photocathode to the beam dump, cover the control system, machine protection etc and summarize with the status of the ERL systems.

  13. INDAG newsletter. No. 2

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-09-01

    This second issue, you cannot fail to notice the winds of change: changes in the individual programmes of the Member States are now progressively moving from paper studies to realistic site specific investigations; changes in the very orientation of INDAG, in which the accent is now more and more on technical issues and discussions; and changes in the Newsletter itself - in this issue you have not one but three technical notes (see the insert: INDAG Technical Brief), summarising the presentations made during the last INDAG Meeting held from 10 to 12 July, 2002. Reflecting these changes, INDAG has recommended the organisation of Technical Meetings to take place in alternate years between INDAG meetings. Yet another domain where noticeable changes are apparent is the area of International collaborations, which have become realities from just ideas. The EURODESAL project is well underway. This is also the case for the collaboration between South Korea and Indonesia, between France and Tunisia and between France and Morocco, all three dealing with site-specific studies with a view to furnish technical and economic specifications for eventual, integrated nuclear desalination plants. The collaboration between Russia and Canada on a floating nuclear desalination facility continues at an advanced stage

  18. Perceptions of northeast Thai breastfeeding mothers regarding facilitators and barriers to six-month exclusive breastfeeding: focus group discussions.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Thepha, Thiwawan; Marais, Debbie; Bell, Jacqueline; Muangpin, Somjit

    2018-01-01

    The 6-month exclusive breastfeeding rate in the Northeast region of Thailand has recently significantly decreased in contrast to all other regions in Thailand. The factors that have influenced this decrease remain unknown. Hence, it is suggested that an investigation into factors that could improve or hinder EBF for 6 months in Northeast Thailand may be required to inform the development of relevant interventions to improve this situation. This study aimed to identify perceived facilitators and barriers to providing exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months in Northeast Thailand among breastfeeding mothers. Six focus group discussions were conducted with a total of 30 mothers aged 20 to 40 years who had children aged between 4 and 6 months and were currently breastfeeding or had breastfeeding experience. Participants were recruited through self-selection sampling from Khonkaen hospital (urban), Numphong hospital (peri-urban) and private hospitals (urban) in Khonkaen, Thailand. Thematic analysis was employed to analyse the data. Five main themes, with 10 sub-themes, were identified as either facilitators (+) or barriers (-), or in some cases, as both (+/-). Breastfeeding knowledge, perceptions, maternal circumstances, support, and traditional food were the main identified themes. Mother's breastfeeding knowledge, intention to breastfeed, and social media were perceived as facilitators. Perceptions, employment, and formula milk promotion were perceived as barriers. Family, healthcare, and traditional food were perceived as both facilitators and barriers. The perception that social media was a way to access breastfeeding knowledge and support mothers in Northeast Thailand emerged as a new facilitating factor that had not previously been identified in Thai literature relating to facilitators and barriers to exclusive breastfeeding. Intention to breastfeed, family support, healthcare support and traditional food were mentioned by all groups, whereas mothers from urban

    1992-11-01

    After the ITER Engineering Design Activities (EDA) Agreement and Protocol 1 had been signed by the four ITER parties on July 21, 1992 and had entered into force, the ITER Council suggested at its first meeting (Vienna, September 10-11, 1992) that the publication of the ITER Newsletter be continued during the EDA with assistance of the International Atomic Energy Agency. This suggestion was supported by the Agency and subsequently the ITER office in Vienna assumed its responsibilities for planning and executing activities related to the publication of the Newsletter. The ITER EDA Newsletter is planned to be a monthly publication aimed at disseminating broad information and understanding, including the description of the personal and institutional involvements in the ITER project in addition to technical facts about it. The responsibility for the Newsletter rests with the ITER council. In this first issue the signing of the ITER EDA Activities and Protocol 1 is reported. The EDA organizational structure is described. This issue also reports on the first ITER EDA council meeting, the opening of the ITER EDA NAKA Co-Centre, the first meeting of the ITER Technical Advisory Committee, activities of special working groups, an ITER Technical Meeting, as well as ''News in Brief'' and ''Coming Events''

  11. Evaluation of a public health newsletter intended for travel agents.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Provost, Sylvie

    2003-01-01

    Travel agents are in a key position to encourage travelers to seek consultation in travel clinics. Since the beginning of the year 2000, a newsletter specifically designed to sensitize travel agents to travel health has been published by the public health authorities and distributed to all travel agencies in Quebec. This study was undertaken to evaluate the utilization and appreciation of the newsletter by travel agents and its impact on preventive practices. During the autumn of 2001, a cross-sectional descriptive survey was carried out among travel agencies in Quebec. Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire sent by fax with a postal follow-up. A total of 252 of the 950 travel agencies contacted (27%) answered our questionnaire. In all, 78% of respondents said their agency receives the newsletter. Among these agencies, the majority of respondents considered that the subjects discussed in the newsletter are interesting (often or in general: 96%), that the subjects and preventive recommendations for travel destinations are useful in the travel agent's practice (often or in general: 89%), and generally presented in an adequate way (96%). According to the respondents, the newsletter encouraged them, often or very often, to inform travelers about travel-related health problems (70%) or to recommend a consultation in a travel clinic (63%). The impact of the newsletter on the recommendation to consult was greater among agents having more than 10 years' experience (odds ratio [OR] 3.2). When asked about the best way to send them the newsletter, only 31% identified bulk mailing, which was the current mode of distribution. Satisfaction rate with the newsletter appears to be high among respondents who receive it. However, the low response rate to the survey may indicate that as a whole, the travel agents' interest in the newsletter is mitigated. Despite the limitations of this study, the results will allow us to modify some aspects of the publication

    Supporting parents in the first three years of a child's life has the potential to produce successful outcomes. Present government initiatives such as Sure Start focus on this age group. An American educational intervention, in the style of a monthly newsletter, was adapted for use in the UK for parents of young children. Topics were presented in an easy-to-read format and focused on infant emotional development, parent interaction and play. Newsletters, called Baby Express were posted at monthly intervals to the family home providing age-paced information which could meet the specific needs of parents at that stage of their child's life. The aim of the study was to determine the applicability of the newsletter to UK parents and evaluate their satisfaction. Sixty home-based interviews were conducted and 95 per cent of mothers reported reading all or part of the newsletter. Changes in parenting style were spontaneously reported by 28 per cent of mothers. This study found that an aged-paced parenting newsletter was an acceptable and useful method of supporting parents in the early months of a child's life and promotes positive changes in parenting behaviour.

  15. INDAG newsletter. No. 4

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2004-09-01

    INDAG, so far, has been the only IAEA group to publish its Newsletter regularly before each General Conference Meeting. It is no doubt mainly this motivation for communication with complete transparency, coupled with expert advice, that led the independent panel for the evaluation of IAEA's nuclear desalination activities to highly commend INDAG for its actions. This time, INDAG brings you some concrete results of the International cooperation activities, strongly supported by INDAG and carried out under the aegis of IAEA's INT/4/134 programme: Thus, the Kalpakkam nuclear desalination complex in India is nearly completed, the Pakistani project for desalination with the Karachi nuclear power plant is now well on the way. At the same time, two technical and economic feasibility studies of nuclear desalination have also been completed. The final report on the feasibility of SMART + MED based integrated desalination system for the Madura island in Indonesia (Collaboration between South Korea and Indonesia) has already been published. That from the French -Tunisian collaboration, known as the TUNDESAL project, would come out as this Newsletter reaches you. As INDAG has consistently tried to communicate, these two studies have independently concluded that nuclear desalination is indeed a viable option for the future. The CRP on the economic assessment of site-specific cases, launched after INDAG's recommendation, continues to move forward. It was indeed the revised new models in DEEP that permitted the comprehensive economic evaluation of desalination costs in the two international feasibility studies

  16. Animal production and health newsletter. No. 41

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2004-12-01

    In the June 2004 Newsletter, we focused on the topic of molecular diagnostic technologies and the way forward. It is clear from the feedback, that there is a strong desire for having reliable, definitive, sensitive, specific, cost effective and on-site diagnostic tests, in parallel with so-called herd or population surveillance tests. This will allow for the implementation of more effective disease control strategies. It is indeed exciting to consider the current technological explosion and its consequences and what potential advantages might be in store for many of our Member States. This will also help to ensure that we keep abreast of new developments and employ the most appropriate tools.The conclusions and recommendations will be placed on the web as soon as they are available and published in the next Newsletter. The second topic under discussion in this Newsletter will focus on the management of animal genetic resources. Both past and future activities are described in further detail in this issue

    2001-01-01

    The first article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter is the report of the 9th SSDL Scientific Committee Meeting held from 13-17 November 2000. The editor wishes to draw the readers' attention to recommendations xviii, xxi and xxvi of the Scientific Committee, to evaluate the potential needs of SSDLs for the audit and calibration services in diagnostic radiology, brachytherapy and nuclear medicine metrology. For that purpose, the Secretariat of the IAEA/WHO network is preparing a survey form to be sent to all SSDLs of the network. It is hoped that the network members will fill in the questionnaire and return it to the Secretariat as soon as possible. The second article is a technical note prepared by the staff of the Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics Section that deals with the ''effect of humidity on measurements with a well type chamber''. Those SSDL members possessing a well type chamber are encouraged to conduct similar frequent constancy checks and submit their contributions to the editor for publication in a forthcoming issue of the Newsletter. Contributions will be duly acknowledged. The third article is a report of the Second Research Co-ordination Meeting (RCM) for the Co-ordinated Research Project (CRP E2.40.07) on ''the development of a quality assurance programme for radiation therapy dosimetry in developing countries'', held at IAEA Headquarters from 4-8 December 2000. The aim of the CRP is to establish national Quality Assurance (QA) networks for external quality audits for radiotherapy hospitals in developing countries. This is done by setting up national External Audit Groups (EAGs) with laboratory backup for operating TLD audits for radiotherapy dosimetry. The main results achieved under this CRP are included in the report. A new SSDL has recently joined our Network: the Laboratory of State Dosimetry Standards of the Belarussian State Institute of Metrology (Gosstandart). The SSDL has been added to the database of the IAEA/WHO Network of

  20. Newsletter '76 in stereology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Ondracek, G.

    1976-08-01

    The present newsletter on stereology deals with a brief outlook about stereological problems to be solved in the future, compares definitions in pattern recognition and stereology and exposes the main notions of mathematical morphology used in quantitative metallography. This includes the description of the main stereological equations relating the parameters describing the dimensional features to the parameters measured in plane sections as well as a special type of equation for practical uses by which the average fiber length in composite materials can be determined. In this context the methods of particle shape descriptions have been summarized and reviewed and an example is given, how particle size and shape distributions can be measured statistically by automatic feature analysis of morphometric sections. - The introduction of stereological microstructural parameters into microstructure - property equations opens the way to calculate the materials properties by a stereological microstructure analysis and extends the possibilities of the common microstructural quality control. This is demonstrated for WC-Co hard metals. (orig./GSC) [de

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2001-09-01

    The International Nuclear Desalination Advisory Group, INDAG, was created following the 1996 General Conference Resolution (GC(40)/RES/14) requesting the IAEA to take the appropriate measures to assist Member States in the process of preparatory actions for nuclear desalination demonstration projects. This resolution was reiterated in the following IAEA General Conferences and INDAG is now in its second term, ending in 2004. From its very beginning, INDAG has actively contributed to the promotion and stimulation of nuclear desalination activities in IAEA Member States. Its achievements are numerous but they are perhaps relatively less well known to people outside IAEA and related organisations. INDAG, through its meetings, has provided common methodology, computer tools and activities which have encouraged other Member States to engage in nuclear desalination activities in a more coherent manner. Similarly, under INDAG recommendations and suggestions, IAEA has already implemented important activities for the promotion of the cause for nuclear desalination in the world launching of the Coordinated Research Program on 'Optimisation of the coupling of nuclear reactors and desalination systems' (1998-2003). This first issue of the Newsletter prepared by INDAG members brings not only a report of INDAG activities but presents the latest innovations and advances taking place in Member States in the field of nuclear desalination

  11. SSDL newsletter. No. 46

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2002-01-01

    The first two articles of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter deal with guidelines for setting up the TLD based Quality Assurance (QA) network at the national level and propose a set of standardized procedures for onsite dosimetry review visits to hospitals for resolving discrepancies occurred in the TLD audits. The third article presents an analysis of the deviations identified through the IAEA/WHO TLD audit service. The fourth article is a short technical note on the results of a comparison conducted between the IAEA and the SSDL-STUK (Finland) of calibration coefficients of a well type chamber. This note is followed by an announcement on the publication of an update of the IAEA TECDOC-1079. The new document is published as IAEA TECDOC-1274. The fifth article is also a technical note on a pilot study to verify electrometer calibration coefficients. The note describes the procedures to be used and invites interested SSDLs of the IAEA/WHO network to participate in the pilot study. The IAEA Dosimetry Laboratory will participate in this pilot study. The verification of calibration coefficients of electrometers is of particular interest to SSDLs who have their reference ionization chamber calibrated alone (without the electrometer) in terms of air kerma or absorbed dose per unit charge or current collected. Before the chamber can be used with an electrometer, it is necessary to verify the calibration coefficient of the electrometer (in terms of charge or current). The sixth article was prepared by the Head of a new SSDL member, the Ionizing Radiation Metrology Laboratory (IRML) of South Africa, who has recently joined the network. It gives an overview of the facilities, activities and QA programme of the IRML. The last article is a short note prepared by the IAEA Secretariat on the use of calibration coefficients instead of calibration factors

  12. SSDL newsletter. No. 41

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1999-07-01

    The first article of this issue of the SSDL Newsletter is a synopsis of the Ph.D. thesis submitted by Karen Rosser to the University of London in May 1996. If the reader would like the complete version of the thesis, he/she should contact the author at NPL. Readers are reminded that a second edition of the IAEA TRS-277 was published in 1997 (Spanish version in 1998) and the related changes together with the scientific manuscripts were also published as IAEA TECDOC-897. The update concerns primarily the dosimetry of kilovoltage x-rays. The second article presents the IAEA standards for radiation protection and diagnostic radiology. It is worthwhile mentioning that although about 80% of the SSDL laboratory members conduct both radiotherapy and radiation protection calibrations, only few protection level secondary standards are calibrated at the AlEA. During recent years, calibration of protection level secondary standards has represented only a few percent of the therapy level calibrations. It is hoped that this article will give some insight into the activities of the IAEA in the dissemination of standards at radiation protection level dosimetry where proper traceability of measurements with a defined level of uncertainty is as important as in radiotherapy. The last article is the report from a Consultants Meeting related to dosimetry in diagnostic radiology, held at the IAEA in May 1999. The consultants overviewed the scientific achievements in the field and made recommendations to the Agency on the need for further developments. The consultants emphasized the need to develop a Code of Practice which will provide guidance on the establishment of radiation qualities and on the calibration procedures for dosimetry in diagnostic radiology

    This issue focuses on the specific biotechnological methods that have the greatest potential for livestock production and health in developing countries, and which of these require nuclear and related techniques? The consultants' meeting that we held during 2001 (http://www.iaea.org/programmes/nafa/d3/public/ gene-technologies.pdf) provided us with the answers. We have subsequently discussed these concepts further with FAO, ILRI and other partners, and have planned a series of activities over the next two years to facilitate the transition of our Sub-programme. The first is an FAO/IAEA International Symposium on 'Applications of Gene Based Technologies for Improving Animal Production and Health in Developing Countries' which will be held here in Vienna from 6 to 10 October 2003. The official announcement is included in this Newsletter. This will be followed by three inter-regional training courses, to be held during 2004 and 2005, to train scientists in developing countries on the molecular techniques currently being used in the fields of animal nutrition, genetics and disease diagnosis. Subsequently, four new CRPs will be initiated during 2005-2006, dealing with (a) rumen molecular techniques for predicting and enhancing productivity; (b) manipulation of nutrition in utero to alter gene expression; (c) characterization of small ruminant genetic resources aimed at selection for parasite resistance; and (d) improvement of diagnostic tests for African Swine Fever to assist in molecular epidemiology. The announcements for the first two have already appeared in previous Newsletters and that for the third will be in the next issue. The projects that have been approved for implementation during the next biennium (2003-2004) are listed in this Newsletter.

  14. Evaluation of factors influencing on non-exclusive breast feeding during the first six months of life in Bushehr Port using focus group discussion

    Full Text Available Non-exclusive breast feeding in the early years of life is one of the most important factors in growth and development of infants. Therefore, exclusive breast feeding is recommended during the first six months of life. For determining the effective factors of non-exclusive breast feeding during the first six months of life, we used focus group discussion by participation of 60 mothers who had an infant under 6 months age and enjoyed non-exclusive breast feeding. Mothers divided into eight groups considering their occupation and number of child. All groups reported scanty of mother’s milk, mother’s occupation, mother’s illness, mother’s comfort, wrong beliefs, infant’s illness, doctors and health care providers recommendations, infant’s dependency to feeding bottle and pacifiers as the most frequent factors in using nonexclusive breast feeding. All mothers believed that health care centers, relatives and older members of family, books and pamphlets, mass media, physicians were their effective sources of awareness and promotion of exclusive breast feeding. Considering the presented ideas in all groups, it is realized that mothers during their pregnancy have sparse information about exclusive breast feeding and because of lack of enough essential training, some socio – cultural beliefs affects non-exclusive breast feeding. Mass media and especial training programs should be implemented to promote exclusive breast feeding in Bushehr Port.

    The activities of the Animal Production and Health Section of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division are carried out through the operation of Co-ordinated Research Programmes and Technical Co-operation projects, both of which aim to encourage and improve the capacity of national institutions in tropical and subtropical countries to identify and resolve problems connected with livestock development. This particular programme at the outset, it was envisaged that an inter-disciplinary approach would be adopted by each participating institute whereby studies on nutrition, reproduction and health would be integrated into a number of site specific projects. The one discussed in this newsletter covers animal production and focussing on animal reproduction and reproduction-nutrition interactions. This paper contains an outline for the program which encourages scientists from universities and research institutes to provide assistance and solutions to developing countries on the technical difficulties associated with artificial insemination

  5. A Canadian recycling newsletter. Final phase

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1979-01-01

    A study was performed to publish a Canadian recycling newsletter, to be distributed gradually throughout the country. This report reviews the format, data collection procedures, printing, mailing, advertising, marketing, promotion, and finances of the publication. In the final phase of the study, publication and distribution was to extend to various segments of the secondary materials industry. This would include publishing articles and industry briefs related to the ferrous and non-ferrous metals industry. The publication would be increased to 12 pages and would attempt to become financially self-sufficient. In this phase, the newsletter became firmly established as the voice of Canada's secondary materials market, especially waste paper, where the price guide published by the newsletter became a sort of recognized standard. It was found that financially independent operation was achieved within one year. The newsletter was published on schedule and reader response was positive. Examples of the newsletter, called Recoup, are included in the appendix.

    The seventh meeting of the Scientific Committee of the IAEA/WHO Network of Secondary Standard Dosimetry Laboratories (SSDL) was held in Vienna at the Agency headquarters on 30 September to 4 October 1996. According to the Terms of Reference, the SSC evaluated the activities of the Dosimetry Section reported for 1995-1996 and discussed the proposed programme for the Section for 1997-1998. Long-term plans for seminars and teaching courses (until the year 2000) were also discussed. The scope of the evaluation was addressed to the fundamental questions of: the objective of the programme area; the impact (benefits to the Member States); its continuing relevance as an Agency activity

We don't expect much excitement from the rest of the 1997 collection. JSC has examined another 100 meteorites to send to the Smithsonian for classification and they appear to be more of the same LL5 shower. However, past experience tells us that there will be some treasures hidden in the remaining samples. Hope rings eternal, but we can't wait to see the 1998 collection described below.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    1999-01-01

    The first article discusses the Code of Practice IAEA TRS-381 complements and extends the IAEA TRS-277. It describes procedures that my be used to calibrate plane-parallel chambers against air kerma or absorbed dose to water standards at 60 Co gamma ray energy, in order to obtain the absorbed-dose-to-air chamber factor (N D,air ) or the absorbed dose to water chamber factor. This Code of Practice also updates some of the data and concepts presented in TRS-277. Soon after the publication of this report, the Agency has launched a Co-ordinated Research Project (CRP) to ascertain that the Code of Practice meets the highest scientific standards and yields the most accurate results available today. The second article is the report of the 8th SSDL Scientific Committee meeting held during 5-9 October 1998

  11. Plant breeding and genetics newsletter. No. 10

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2003-01-01

    The most important event related to the activity of the Plant Breeding and Genetics sub-programme in the past six months was the 2nd FAO/IAEA Interregional Training Course on 'Mutant Germplasm Characterization using Molecular Markers' which was held at Seibersdorf, 4-29 November 2002. In addition to basic molecular and marker techniques, which were also a subject of the first training course last year, fluorescence in situ hybridisation methods were included in the teaching and demonstration programme. As we informed you in the last edition of this Newsletter, a laboratory manual was published with detailed protocols on molecular markers techniques entitled 'Mutant germplasm characterization using molecular markers. A Manual'. (IAEA Training Course Series No. 19). (available for free distribution under conditions provided on page 11 of this Newsletter). We have also finished editing a book on 'Doubled haploid production in crop plants. A Manual.' This book was prepared in close collaboration with EU COST 851 activities. Ken Kasha (Canada), Brian Forster (UK) and lwona Szarejko (Poland) helped to edit more than 40 protocols for doubled haploid production in at least 23 crop species. The preparation of this manual reflects our our interest in the development and application of this technology for crop improvement. Two CRPs and numerous Technical Co-operation projects greatly contributed to the development of doubled haploid methods and also to implementation of this technology in crop improvement programmes of many countries. Numerous other important activities have been undertaken by the Plant Breeding and Genetics sub-programme during the last 6 months. A consultants meeting on 'Low cost technology in plant tissue culture' was held in Vienna and its results will be summarized in the form of an IAEA-TECDOC which is now in the final stage of preparation. In addition to the implementation of five Co-ordinated Research Projects, nine workshops and national or regional

    2003-07-01

    Implementation of a new CRP on Physical mapping technologies for the identification and characterization of mutated genes contributing to crop quality, organization of mutant germplasm database and repository, implementation of new TC projects and activation of work on molecular characterization of Musa putative germplasm as well as sequencing of BAC clones were the major activities of our sub-Programme on Plant Breeding and Genetics during the last six months. A lot of work has been concentrated on organizing a mutant germplasm repository. The first collections of rice and linseed mutants have already arrived and their descriptions have been introduced into the mutated germplasm database. We found this activity especially important to stimulate exchange of crop germplasm among plant breeders. Similarly there is an urgent need to collect mutants of various crops as necessary material for functional genomics and germplasm enhancement. Nevertheless, many crop research institutes are initiating large-scale mutation programmes with the use of their own plant material. To help them in selecting the mutagen, doses and mutation treatment procedure, we published the third issue of Mutation Breeding Newsletter Index of No. 21-44. The Index is also available through our website http://www.iaea.org/programmes/nafa/d2/index.html. The numerous requests for issues of the Mutation Breeding Newsletter already received from various countries indicate the value of this 80-page index for plant breeders and research institutes. We were invited to present the activities, achievements and trends of our sub-Programme at two very important, international meetings: The International Conference on the Status of Plant and Animal Genome Research, known as the Plant and Animal Genome (PAG XI), and The International Congress on 'In the Wake of the Double Helix - From the Green Revolution to the Gene Revolution'. At this last meeting, an initiative was taken to organize the Crop Root Research

    This year, the Animal Production and Health Section is 50 years old. The Animal Production and Health Section identifies new areas of interest based on the Member States' needs to improve efficiencies and to control threats to animal production and health. To this effect, several platforms, assays, diagnostic kits and technical procedures have been developed, adapted and transferred to Member States, supported by R&D, expert technical backstopping and guidance from our Animal Production and Health Laboratory. In addition, several nuclear based technologies (such as reproduction and disease related technologies (such as reproduction and disease related radioimmunoassay have been adapted to other types of chemistries (e.g. chemiluminescence instead of isotopes) to be used at the farm level. Stable isotopes and radioisotopes, however, still play an important and niche role to achieve the levels of sensitivity and specificity needed by the livestock community in ensuring secure and safe food, to follow and measure feed and nutritional conversion into usable energy in the animal, to improve animal breeding traits towards more and of better quality animals, to monitor migratory animals and their associated pathogens, to generate safe and protective animal vaccines through the irradiation of pathogens and to develop and transfer early and rapid diagnostic platforms. Looking back at the activities of the past six months, we had several workshops, training courses, research co-ordination meetings (RCMs) and consultants meetings. Activities scheduled for the next half-year include project review meetings, RCMs, inter-regional training courses and regional workshops. Both past and future activities are discussed in further detail in this newsletter and are also further accessible at our website.

    2012-01-01

    This is the first issue of the Nuclear Power Newsletter in 2012. The 55th IAEA General Conference was successfully held in September 2011 with various events, including the exhibition of the Department of Nuclear Energy and the three side events on nuclear power issues, i.e. highlights of INPRO, developments in the introduction of nuclear power, and the Nuclear Industry Cooperation Forum. Other major activities during the past few months included the preparation of detailed actions, in the short, mid, and long term, for the IAEA Action Plan on Nuclear Safety, the International Workshop on Public Information and Understanding to Introduce New Nuclear Power Plants held in the Republic of Korea in October, an Integrated Nuclear Infrastructure Review (INIR) mission to Bangladesh in November and the 18th INPRO Steering Committee Meeting in November. A good number of publications were issued recently and a listing of them is found in this newsletter. The first retreat on administrative matters was held on 5 August with all general service staff of the NENP Division and Heads of the Sections/Groups. We are now planning the 4th Divisional Retreat during the first quarter of 2012. A great opportunity for networking and getting to know new colleagues was the first 'Divisional Sports Day' on 10 September on the outskirts of Vienna. In this issue, three staff members are introducing their home towns - Ballycastle, Northern Ireland (Brian Molloy), Phoenix, Arizona (Ness Kilic), and Multan, Pakistan (Kamran Qureshi). The Nuclear Power Newsletters will now be published only three times per year, in January, May and September. The January and May issues will be published electronically only on the IAEA's websites, while the September issue will also be available in printed form for the participants of the General Conference.

  19. Insect pest control newsletter. No. 61

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2003-07-01

    In the past years it has often been pointed out that the name of the Insect and Pest Control Subprogramme of the Joint FAO/IAEA Division, and the name of this newsletter (Insect and Pest Control Newsletter) create confusion and expectations for control of rats, birds, weeds and other non-insect pests but which are not within our mandate. All work within the Subprogramme has been on insect pests, and in 1999 an external review recommended a change to Insect Pest Control Subprogramme since this is simpler, reduces confusion and retains the good recognition and high reputation that already exists. The IAEA management implemented this recommendation and consequently, as of this issue this newsletter is entitled Insect Pest Control Newsletter. There was a very constructive consultant's meeting recently held in Vienna on the development of genetic sexing strains for the codling moth, for which the demand for SIT application is significantly increasing. Based on the discussions during this meeting a real opportunity seems now to exist to move the field of Lepidoptera genetic sexing forward. The possibility of using an allele of a dominant lethal mutation, such as the temperature sensitive Notch, in the development of a genetic sexing system for codling moth is very exciting. As emerged during the meeting, if an appropriate allele of this mutation can be inserted onto the female determining chromosome of codling moth, through transformation, then it may be possible to kill female embryos with a cold temperature treatment. Another approach could be to translocate an autosomal insertion of the gene onto the female determining chromosome. If the insert of the dominant lethal mutation also included a gene expressing a fluorescent protein then the strain would also have a visible marker for the sexing procedure. This latter is very important for any use of a sexing strain in mass rearing. There appear to be few technical constraints to demonstrating 'proof of principle' for

    Even as separate institutes, the EIR (Eidg. Institut fuer Reaktorforschung and the SIN (Schweiz. Institut fuer Nuklearforschung) made use of ionizing radiation and radioactivity in medical diagnosis and therapy. After their fusion into a national laboratory, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), these projects were combined with those of the Radiation Protection Group and the Life Sciences Department was formed. In equality with the departments of Nuclear and Particle Physics, Condensed Matter and Materials Sciences, and Energy Research and Engineering Sciences, the department of Life Sciences is one of the major pillars of the new center. The activities are divided into three areas: radiation medicine, radiopharmacy, and radiation protection. The goal of the first two is to develop social and economic uses of radioactivity and elementary particles. The Division of Radiation Medicine proposes to achieve this through the development of original, dynamic and conformal tumor therapy with charged particles and the Division of Radiopharmacy through the investigation into, and the production of, highly specific diagnostic systems for SPECT, PET and MRI and the investigation of the use of radionuclides in therapy. The third division, Radiation Protection, evaluates the risks of ionizing radiation in biology and the ecosphere and proposes adequate protection measures. The present report describes, in the first section, the outstanding scientific results of the past year and, in the second section, gives a progress report on the on-going programs. It is the first report in this style, but it can be considered as a continuation of the earlier Medical Newsletter of SIN. (author) 59 figs., 19 tabs., 61 refs

  3. Accurate Prognostic Awareness Facilitates, Whereas Better Quality of Life and More Anxiety Symptoms Hinder End-of-Life Care Discussions: A Longitudinal Survey Study in Terminally Ill Cancer Patients' Last Six Months of Life.

    Terminally ill cancer patients do not engage in end-of-life (EOL) care discussions or do so only when death is imminent, despite guidelines for EOL care discussions early in their disease trajectory. Most studies on patient-reported EOL care discussions are cross sectional without exploring the evolution of EOL care discussions as death approaches. Cross-sectional studies cannot determine the direction of association between EOL care discussions and patients' prognostic awareness, psychological well-being, and quality of life (QOL). We examined the evolution and associations of accurate prognostic awareness, functional dependence, physical and psychological symptom distress, and QOL with patient-physician EOL care discussions among 256 terminally ill cancer patients in their last six months by hierarchical generalized linear modeling with logistic regression and by arranging time-varying modifiable variables and EOL care discussions in a distinct time sequence. The prevalence of physician-patient EOL care discussions increased as death approached (9.2%, 11.8%, and 18.3% for 91-180, 31-90, and 1-30 days before death, respectively) but only reached significance in the last month. Accurate prognostic awareness facilitated subsequent physician-patient EOL care discussions, whereas better patient-reported QOL and more anxiety symptoms hindered such discussions. The likelihood of EOL care discussions was not associated with levels of physical symptom distress, functional dependence, or depressive symptoms. Physician-patient EOL care discussions for terminally ill Taiwanese cancer patients remain uncommon even when death approaches. Physicians should facilitate EOL care discussions by cultivating patients' accurate prognostic awareness early in their cancer trajectory when they are physically and psychologically competent, with better QOL, thus promoting informed and value-based EOL care decision making.

    2006-12-01

    Once again the year is at end and a new exciting year lies ahead of us. The past year has been a busy time for all staff in the subprogramme. Apart from our regular Coordinated Research Project (CRP) activities and our technical support given to national and regional Technical Cooperation (TC) projects, we were involved in the technical evaluation of applications for new TC projects by Member States for the 2007/2008 biennial project cycle. We have also prepared the IAEA's 2008/2009 Work and Budget Programme. It is hoped that our inputs will serve the best interests of our Member States. As with previous newsletters, I want to introduce a topic to hopefully stimulate discussion and debate and encourage interactions between all. It has been well discussed in previous newsletters that the trend towards intensification of livestock production in developing countries presents both opportunities and risks. The potential opportunities are the flow-on benefits to the local economy and producers and the potential risks are the flow-on costs to the environment, livestock health and welfare and human health, through increased chemical and nutrient pollution, disease transmission and centralization of feed resources. Understanding nutrition is one of the keys to taking advantage of the opportunities and minimizing the risks

    2009-07-01

    The biggest event this year was undoubtedly, the successful International Symposium on Sustainable Improvement of Animal Production and Health that was held from 8 to 11 June 2009, here in Vienna. It was attended by more than 400 participants from about 100 Member States of the IAEA and FAO, including several international organizations, with oral and poster contributions. The most important aspects of the symposium were to renew old and form new acquaintances, to discuss common topics and strategies and to form networks and partnerships to address animal production and health problems. The symposium was indeed topical and designed to address issues of importance to our Member States. The new and emerging areas of interest such as One Heath, Food Security and Safety and our ability to produce more and healthier animals and animal products in an 'environmentally safe, clean and ethical' way were hotly discussed. Some of the conclusions and challenges that animal scientists face, whose primary concern have been improving livestock productivity, are more extensively reported on in this newsletter. In addition, we will publish full length papers of all the oral presentations, and some of the most imminent poster presentations, as symposium proceedings shortly. Both past and future activities are described in further detail in this newsletter

  6. Nuclear Data Newsletter, No. 52, November 2011

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2011-11-01

    The Nuclear Data Section was active at the recent IAEA General Conference introducing the importance of nuclear data and stressing how the Nuclear Data Section web site is the ideal place to access such data. As you will see in this newsletter, we are focusing on one of our core activities - the EXFOR database of experimental reaction data. In many ways this part of our work encapsulates all that we do; through our coordination of the NRDC we ensure that scarce resources are used most efficiently, we define the data formats to keep them relevant for new kinds of data, we are part of the technical work of compilation and we organise the training of new compilers. But perhaps our most important role is through our web site; by investing in a wide range of software tools the user is easily able to retrieve the relevant data and display them in many different ways. A new feature is the ability to renormalize or correct the data so that they are kept up to date. I hope that after reading about some of the recent advances in EXFOR you will be inspired to visit the EXFOR part of our web site and try out the new features. As always we welcome feedback or suggestions for improvements, we rely on these to keep the web site fresh and relevant. This newsletter is the last of the current biennium, the two year period that the IAEA uses for its programme and budget planning. It has unfortunately been dominated over the last nine months by the disaster at Fukushima, and the IAEA is looking at the many ways that it can improve the situation and help ensure that such an event is even more unlikely in the future. One thing that was obvious was the need for information relevant to such an event, by experts and laypersons alike, and we are currently looking at ways that such information can be made more accessible. Some of the more important products from the last two years have been RIPL-3 (library of parameters needed for theoretical calculations), new decay data files for actinides

    2017-06-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter (No. 66) is the first one published only in electronic form. This change in format will open new possibilities by allowing us to use more interactive materials in the future. We would like also to increase the interaction between the members of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network and thus invite all members to send new ideas and articles for the Newsletter. One of our services is to organize comparisons for members of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network. We provide comparison services for standards used for radiation therapy, diagnostic radiology and radiation protection calibrations. To be able to provide these services, we also have to take part in comparisons to support our calibration and measurement capabilities. The first article of this newsletter is one example of this kind of comparison and provides comparison results of the radiation therapy level standards of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the IAEA. In this newsletter, we have included several reports from different meetings and courses. The article starting from page 9 provides a comprehensive information package for countries establishing and developing dosimetry audit centres. The article that follows introduces a new publication in progress for establishing an SSDL. Training courses about radiation protection calibrations and preparing a quality management system for SSDLs were both organized under IAEA technical cooperation. The uncertainty workshop organised in April by DMRP had more than 80 participants and, in addition to the guidance on uncertainty estimations, it provided the participants a good opportunity to meet other dosimetry experts

    2002-07-01

    Analysis and implications of the meeting on 'Status and Risk Assessment of the Use of Transgenic Arthropods in Plant Protection' that took place at FAO headquarters in Rome in April 2002 are discussed in this issue. This very timely meeting was jointly organized by FAO/IAEA and the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) secretariat and chaired by Alan Robinson. Experts in both the technology of transformation as well as regulatory procedures and risk assessment participated. Transgenic technology is now almost routinely used in many insect species and currently arthropod transgenesis is mainly concerned with the stability and fitness of these strains. These topics will probably be the main issues to be addressed in a new Coordinated Research Project (CRP), is being proposed for initiation in 2003. From the regulatory point of view, risk assessment is mainly focused on horizontal transmission and the impact on biodiversity, and these concerns will need to be addressed when moving on a case-by-case basis, from the laboratory through field cages to open field release. Regulatory approval in the USA for the first field cage release of genetically transformed arthropod (pink bollworm) provided a timely background for the meeting. The proceedings of the meeting should provide the basis for the rational development of the use of transgenic arthropods. Following resolutions by IAEA and also FAO governing bodies in support of the PATTEC initiative, that was launched by African Heads of State (reported in previous issues), several press releases and media reports have been issued on this topic. Of particular importance is a press release issued jointly by FAO, IAEA, OAU and WHO (text given inside this newsletter) at the beginning of the World Food Summit - Five Years Later, recently held in Rome in June 2002. This joint press release acknowledges the magnitude of the tsetse problem in tsetse-infested areas of sub-Saharan Africa, where about 85 percent of the poor

  8. SSDL newsletter No. 52, July 2006

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2006-08-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter contains the report of the 12th SSDL Scientific Committee (SSC) Meeting held at the IAEA Headquarters from 7-10 March 2006. The SSC conducts biennial reviews and evaluations of the Dosimetry and Medical Radiation Physics activities. Following each meeting, the report of the SSC is addressed to the Directors General of the IAEA and WHO and circulated subsequently to Member States through this Newsletter. The report is pending acceptance by the IAEA and WHO. The second article is a brief note on the polarity of electrometers. The IAEA has received many queries from SSDLs on the definitions used by manufacturers of ionization chambers concerning the sign of the polarity of the chamberelectrometer connecting systems. The lack of clarity has also induced mistakes in some dosimetry comparison exercises where inconsistent polarities were used by some participants. It is hoped that this note will help clarify the issue. The readers were informed in the SSDL Newsletter No. 51 on the extension of the calibration facilities at Seibersdorf. It is a pleasure to announce that less than one year later, the construction of the new wing was completed. The inauguration ceremony was held on June 1 2006

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2012-01-01

    The biggest event in 2011 was the declaration of global freedom from rinderpest by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The IAEA celebrated this momentous occasion on the 20th of September 2011, during the IAEA 55th General Conference. The commitment, dedication and hard work of past and present IAEA staff were commended by all participants as the contribution of the IAEA was a critical and essential component of the eradication success. Building on the success of the rinderpest campaign, technology transfer in the field of animal health continued to be a top priority of the Subprogramme during 2011 and this will continue for the future since our next target disease for eradication is peste des petits ruminants (PPR). Member States received support through Technical Cooperation Projects. In most of the tropics, climatic variation, rainfall patterns and droughts reduce plant growth and feed availability and quality leading to extensive livestock losses and reduced productivity. With the assistance of the IAEA, tremendous improvement has been achieved in terms of quantity and quality of the available feed resource base, particularly, in terms of nutritive value, palatability and/or cold and drought tolerance - vital benefits whose effectiveness can be monitored using nuclear technology. Both past and future activities are described in detail in this newsletter and are also accessible at our website (http://www-naweb.iaea.org/nafa/aph/index.html); I thus need not mention them in this section. Please contact us if you have any further ideas, comments, concerns or questions. As discussed in previous newsletters, the Animal Production and Health Subprogramme will continue to move progressively forward and in pace with developments within the livestock field, to optimally serve our Member States.

  12. Animal Production and Health Newsletter, No. 61, January 2015

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2015-01-01

    In this newsletter, I want to discuss shortly the effects of climate variations, food security and the expansion of animal and zoonotic diseases within the sphere of what the Animal Production and Health Subprogramme can contribute. My take home message would be: • Globalization and climate change are causing an unprecedented worldwide impact on emerging and reemerging animal and zoonotic diseases. • Vector borne diseases are now spreading to previously non-endemic and cooler areas. A dramatically increased incidence in deadly infectious and zoonotic diseases in wildlife, livestock, and people may be the most immediate serious consequence of global warming, food security or food shortage. Globalization and climate change have had a worldwide impact on emerging and re-emerging animal and zoonotic diseases. Climate change is disrupting natural ecosystems by providing more suitable environments for infectious diseases allowing disease-causing bacteria, viruses, and fungi to move into new areas where they may harm wildlife and domestic species, as well as humans. Diseases that were previously limited only to tropical areas are now spreading to other previously cooler areas e.g. Rift Valley fever. Pathogens that were restricted by seasonal weather patterns can invade new areas and find new susceptible species as the climate warms and/or the winters get milder. There is evidence that the increasing occurrence of tropical infectious diseases in the mid latitudes is linked to either global warming or food security. Vector borne diseases are particularly affected by weather patterns and long-term climatic factors strongly influence the incidence of outbreaks. Most of these diseases are caused by insects and their population dynamics are dependent on the prevailing weather conditions, specifically temperature and humidity. Climate change influences local weather conditions and therefore has a significant impact on the presence of vectors and their geographical

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2004-12-01

    This issue of the Newsletter contains a Feature Article on our participation at the FAO/WHO Global Forum of Food Safety Regulators - Building Effective Food Safety Systems in Bangkok, Thailand from 12-14 October 2004. Similar to the First FAO/WHO Global Forum of Food Safety Regulators held in Morocco in January 2002, this Second Global Forum provided the opportunity for food safety regulators from all regions of the world to meet together to consider, discuss and share experiences on food safety issues of concern. The Global Forum was attended by almost 400 participants from over 90 countries and 10 international governmental and non-governmental organizations. The Global Forum presented an excellent opportunity for the Joint FAO/IAEA Division of Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture to report on its food safety and food control activities and to highlight its collaborative efforts in preparedness and response to nuclear emergencies affecting agriculture, including the application of appropriate agricultural countermeasures. This international meeting also provided the opportunity to address one of the recommendations arising from the Working Group Meeting on the International Consultative Group on Food Irradiation (ICGFI) by convening a Seminar on the Application of Irradiation for Sanitary and Phytosanitary Purposes immediately prior to the Global Forum on 11 October 2004. The Joint FAO/IAEA/WHO Seminar was attended by over 30 participants from 11 IAEA Member States, two representatives from WHO and one representative each from FAO and WHO/PAHO. I would like to note that despite the dissolution of ICGFI in May 2004, our Newsletter contains summaries of this and other ongoing and future activities related to the application of irradiation taking place under the various mechanisms available. These include the sponsoring of visiting scientists, the convening on an ad hoc basis groups of experts to provide independent and authoritative advice, collaboration with

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2017-12-01

    This issue of the SSDL Newsletter (No. 67) is a special issue dedicated to the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network. The SSDL Network was established in 1976 and its main aim is to support Member States to maintain the traceability of their dose measurements. The first article of this newsletter is a historical review of the SSDL Network. The SSDL Charter explains the privileges, rights and duties of the Network members and it was originally drawn up and published in 1999. The original SSDL Charter has now been reviewed and updated and electronic version of the 2nd edition is available on our website. The second article of this Newsletter is the foreword of the new Charter. It describes the new edition of the Charter and explains how the requirements for the Network members have changed. One of the requirements of a full SSDL Network member is to fill out and submit the annual report form. This data has been gathered from 2015 and 2016 annual reports and a summary is given in the third article. The article gives a statistical overview of the services provided by the SSDL Network members. In the future, we would like to share this data with you. We are creating a new database called Dosimetry Laboratory Network i.e. DOLNET. The preliminary version of this database is currently available on our new website. However, we are currently working on revising and upgrading it to be able to provide more information about the services available at the SSDLs of the IAEA/WHO SSDL Network.
