Informatics can help providers incorporate context into care

Most determinants of health originate from the “contexts” in which we live, which has remained outside the confines of the U.S. healthcare system. This issue has left providers unprepared to operate with an ample understanding of the challenges patients may face beyond their purview. The recent shift to value-based care and increasing prevalence of Electronic Health Record (EHR...

Multiple hepatic sclerosing hemangiomas: a case report and review of the literature

BackgroundHepatic sclerosing hemangioma, a very rare benign tumor, is characterized by fibrosis and hyalinization occurring in association with degeneration of a hepatic cavernous hemangioma. Such atypical hemangiomas can be diagnosed incorrectly as primary or metastatic malignancies based on imaging characteristics. We present herein a rare case of giant and multiple hepatic...

Verhuizing

SamenvattingOnlangs ben ik met mijn gezin verhuisd. Een periode die je goed voorbereidt. Wat moet er allemaal gebeuren aan klussen, wanneer ga je wat doen, wie kun je waar voor vragen en hoeveel geld heb je om te investeren? Op basis van deze vragen maak je een planning en begroting. Voor een verhuizing van een gezin binnen dezelfde woonplaats is dat nog goed te overzien. Toch is...

Numerical simulation of observations with GOLF on board SOHO

The main objective of the GOLF Experiment (Global Oscillations at Low Frequencies) on-board the SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) space mission is the quantitative knowledge of the internal structure of the Sun by measuring the spectrum of its global oscillations in a wide frequency range (30 nHz to 6 mHz). There is special interest in detecting the low p- and g-modes...

The German bee monitoring project: a long term study to understand periodically high winter losses of honey bee colonies

The Western honey bee, Apis mellifera, is the most important animal pollinator in agriculture worldwide providing more than 90% of the commercial pollination services. Due to the development in agriculture the demands for honey bee pollination are steadily increasing stressing the pollination capacity of the global managed honey bee population. Hence, the long-term decline of...

No evidence that facial width-to-height ratio (fWHR) is associated with women's sexual desire

Facial width-to-height ratio (fWHR) has been linked to many different behavioral tendencies. However, not all of these correlations have replicated well across samples. Arnocky et al. (in press, Archives of Sexual Behavior) recently reported that sexual desire was correlated with fWHR. The current study aimed to test this relationship in a large sample of women. fWHR was measured...

Gravitational memory in higher dimensions

Abstract It is shown that there is a universal gravitational memory effect measurable by inertial detectors in even spacetime dimensions d ≥ 4. The effect falls off at large radius r as r3−d. Moreover this memory effect sits at one corner of an infrared triangle with the other two corners occupied by Weinberg’s soft graviton theorem and infinite-dimensional asymptotic symmetries.

SCIT auch bei Kindern sicher

Die subkutane Immuntherapie ist eine gut verträgliche Option mit vor allem lokalen Nebenwirkungen. Ob diese meist in Erwachsenenstudien gewonnenen Ergebnisse auch für Kinder gelten, wurde jetzt prospektiv untersucht.

Dust properties in NGC 6611

An investigation on dust properties in the NW portion of NGC 6611 has been conducted polarimetrically to test the existence of abnormal extinction in that section of the open cluster in an independent way.
As previously suggested for the η Carinae nebula by Tapia et al. (1988b) and subsequently confirmed by Marraco et al. (1993), the canonical relation between and (the wavelength...

A new strategy for helioseismic inversions

Helioseismic inversion techniques have been revealed as powerful tools for inferring the internal structure and dynamics of the Sun. One of the most popular techniques is Regularized Least Squares. When it is used, it is necessary to define an inversion mesh and a penalty function, without an a priori knowledge of the behaviour of the solution. In addition, this penalty function...

Évaluation d’un enseignement concernant la relation médecin-patient auprès des étudiants de deuxième et troisième années des études médicales à la faculté de médecine de Nantes

Contexte : Un nouvel enseignement concernant la relation médecin-patient a été mis en place de manière exploratoire auprès des étudiants de deuxième et troisième années de médecine à la faculté de Nantes ; une évaluation de ce programme a été réalisée auprès des étudiants et des enseignants. But : Il s'agissait d'apprécier l'intérêt et la pertinence pédagogique de cet...

Proper motions of Luyten Catalogue stars with declinations between -5° and -30° and right ascensions between 13h 30m and 24h

Proper motions, coordinates and finding charts are given for 166 Luyten Catalogue (LTT, Luyten 1957) stars re-discovered as a result of a search for high proper motion stars carried out in nineteen 5 areas, located between and in declination and between 13h 30m and 24h in right ascension. An estimated precision level between 8 and 19 mas/year was achieved for the proper motions...

Three stage period analysis and complementary methods

We generalize the multistage period search and analysis method for the case when the data error estimates (i.e. statistical weights) are available. Adjustment of model parameters allows us to detect complex wave forms in noisy data. Complementary statistical tests are also presented to estimate the significance of the detected periodicities, to verify the modelling reliability...

Affections bucco-dentaires associées à l’infection à VIH dans le service de maladies infectieuses du CHU de Point-G, Bamako

Introduction : Les manifestations buccales de l’infection à VIH sont fréquentes et variées. Elles constituent souvent les premières manifestations cliniques de l’infection à VIH. Objectifs : Les objectifs étaient de déterminer la prévalence des affections buccales, les habitudes d’hygiène bucco-dentaires et de dégager les caractéristiques épidémiocliniques de ces affections chez...

Long-term OH variability of Miras

We present here the results and interpretation of a long-term OH variability program conducted with the French Nançay Radiotelescope from 1980 to 1995. It concerns seven Mira stars: R Aql, RS Vir, S CrB, R LMi, RR Aql, U Her and UX Cyg. This study deals with the three OH maser lines observed in the Miras at 1612, 1665 and 1667 MHz. These OH variable stars have periods ranging...

Characterization of hepatocellular adenoma and carcinoma using microRNA profiling and targeted gene sequencing

Background Hepatocellular adenomas (HCA) are benign liver tumors that may transform into hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), but the molecular drivers of this transformation remain ill-defined. This study evaluates the molecular changes in HCA and HCC and in comparison to their adjacent non-neoplastic liver. Methods 11 patients with HCA and 10 patients with HCC without underlying...

Blocking representation in the ERA-Interim driven EURO-CORDEX RCMs

While Regional Climate Models (RCMs) have been shown to yield improved simulations compared to General Circulation Model (GCM), their representation of large-scale phenomena like atmospheric blocking has been hardly addressed. Here, we evaluate the ability of RCMs to simulate blocking situations present in their reanalysis driving data and analyse the associated impacts on...

A deep λ20 cm radio continuum survey of M 31

We present a survey of the total and linearly polarized radio continuum emission of the Andromeda galaxy at 20 cm wavelength with the VLA-D array. 7 fields were observed with 45 angular resolution. The missing large-scale total emission observed with the Effelsberg telescope was inserted. This survey is the most sensitive radio continuum survey of M 31 so far and the first one in...
