Meta-epistemic defeat

J. Adam Carter 0 0 University of Edinburgh , Edinburgh , UK An account of meta-epistemic defeaters-distinct from traditional (firstorder) epistemic defeaters-is motivated and defended, drawing from

Sosa on knowledge, judgment and guessing

In Chapter 3 of Judgment and Agency, Sosa (Judgment and Agency, 2015) explicates the concept of a fully apt performance. In the course of doing so, he draws from illustrative examples of practical performances and applies lessons drawn to the case of cognitive performances, and in particular, to the cognitive performance of judging. Sosa’s examples in the practical sphere are rich ...

Continuously Grooved Stent Struts for Enhanced Endothelial Cell Seeding

Purpose Implantation of pre-endothelialized stents could enhance cellular recovery of a damaged vessel wall provided attached cells remain viable, functional and are present in sufficient numbers after deployment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of grooved stainless steel (SS) stents as a primary endothelial cell (EC) carrier with potentially enhanced EC ...

The modal account of luck revisited

According to the canonical formulation of the modal account of luck [e.g. Pritchard (2005)], an event is lucky just when that event occurs in the actual world but not in a wide class of the nearest possible worlds where the relevant conditions for that event are the same as in the actual world. This paper argues, with reference to a novel variety of counterexample, that it is a ...

Belief without credence

One of the deepest ideological divides in contemporary epistemology concerns the relative importance of belief versus credence. A prominent consideration in favor of credence-based epistemology is the ease with which it appears to account for rational action. In contrast, cases with risky payoff structures threaten to break the link between rational belief and rational action. This ...

Expression Profiles of Fsh-Regulated Ovarian Genes during Oogenesis in Coho Salmon

The function of follicle-stimulating hormone (Fsh) during oogenesis in fishes is poorly understood. Using coho salmon as a fish model, we recently identified a suite of genes regulated by Fsh in vitro and involved in ovarian processes mostly unexplored in fishes, like cell proliferation, differentiation, survival or extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling. To better understand the ...

Measurement of electrons from beauty-hadron decays in p-Pb collisions at \( \sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02 \) TeV and Pb-Pb collisions at \( \sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=2.76 \) TeV

The production of beauty hadrons was measured via semi-leptonic decays at mid-rapidity with the ALICE detector at the LHC in the transverse momentum interval 1<p T < 8 GeV/c in minimum-bias p-Pb collisions at \( \sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02 \) TeV and in 1.3 < p T < 8 GeV/c in the 20% most central Pb-Pb collisions at \( \sqrt{s_{\mathrm{NN}}}=2.76 \) TeV. The pp reference spectra at ...

The incidence, success rate, and complications of awake tracheal intubation in 1,554 patients over 12 years: an historical cohort study

Purpose Awake tracheal intubation is one recommended option to address select situations in the management of a patient with an anticipated difficult airway. A scarcity of data exists on how often awake intubation is performed or whether its use is changing over time, particularly with the increasingly widespread availability of video laryngoscopy. This retrospective database ...

Supine to standing Cobb angle change in idiopathic scoliosis: the effect of endplate pre-selection

Background Supine imaging modalities provide valuable 3D information on scoliotic anatomy, but the altered spine geometry between the supine and standing positions affects the Cobb angle measurement. Previous studies report a mean 7°-10° Cobb angle increase from supine to standing, but none have reported the effect of endplate pre-selection or whether other parameters affect this ...

Addendum to: Centrality dependence of high-pT D-meson suppression in Pb-Pb collisions at \( \sqrt{{\mathrm{s}}_{\mathrm{NN}}}=2.76 \) TeV

This is an addendum to the article JHEP 11 (2015) 205 [1]. The figures 3 (right), 4 (right) and 5 are updated with published results on non-prompt J/ψ-meson production from the CMS collaboration [2].
