A 12CO () and () atlas of circumstellar envelopes of AGB and post-AGB stars

We present the results of a 12CO () and () survey on a sample of 46 objects classified as AGB and post-AGB stars. We have obtained fully sampled high resolution maps of their 12CO () emission by combining visibilities from the IRAM interferometer with short spacing observations from the IRAM 30 m telescope. Properties of their circumstellar envelopes like fluxes, radii, and...

The Role of Irradiation in the Management of Locally Recurrent Non-Metastatic Soft Tissue Sarcoma of Extremity/Trunkal Locations

Background: Patients who have had initial curative intent therapy for non-metastatic soft tissue sarcoma, and who subsequently relapse at the initial site without evidence of metastatic disease, have various options regarding local treatment. The treatment options available will be determined by the extent of relapse, previous therapy rendered, and patient characteristics. We...

Phosphorus response and optimum pH ranges of twelve pasture legumes grown in an acid upland New Zealand soil under glasshouse conditions

Pasture legumes provide critical nitrogen inputs but fail to persist in typical acidic low P fertility upland soils. Alternative legume species for these environments are urgently sought. Twelve novel legume species were grown for 42 weeks under glasshouse conditions in an acidic upland New Zealand soil. Phosphorus (P) was applied at eight rates (0, 10, 30, 60, 100, 250, 500...

Effective Apnea-Hypopnea Index (“Effective AHI”): A New Measure of Effectiveness for Positive Airway Pressure Therapy

To assess a new measure of positive airway pressure (PAP) effectiveness, the Effective AHI, which accounts for sleep disordered breathing events during the time PAP is (PAP On) and is not (PAP Off) being used. A secondary aim was to test the accuracy of the Watch-PAT 200 (WP) portable monitor for measurement of the Effective AHI.

Somalia’s “Pirate Cycle”: The Three Phases of Somali Piracy

This article provides a theoretical framework for examining Somali piracy from its origins in the 1990s to the present. This analysis provides both a detailed description of the changing nature of piracy, as well as explanations for why these changes have occurred. The increase in pirate activity off Somalia from 1991 to 2011 did not occur in a steady linear progression, but took...

Polymicrobial Oral Infection with Four Periodontal Bacteria Orchestrates a Distinct Inflammatory Response and Atherosclerosis in ApoEnull Mice

Periodontal disease (PD) develops from a synergy of complex subgingival oral microbiome, and is linked to systemic inflammatory atherosclerotic vascular disease (ASVD). To investigate how a polybacterial microbiome infection influences atherosclerotic plaque progression, we infected the oral cavity of ApoEnull mice with a polybacterial consortium of 4 well-characterized...

Trust and the Demand for Personal Collateral in SME - Bank Relationships

Previous research on relationship lending has paid very little attention to the role of trust. Trust might be ex-pected to reduce agency costs, perceived credit risk and thus the request for personal collateral. Trustworthiness is associated with three attributes of SME owner/managers’: ability, benevolence and integrity. We hypothe-sised that loan managers’ assessment of the...

A major QTL corresponding to the Rk locus for resistance to root-knot nematodes in cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.)

Key message Genome resolution of a major QTL associated with the Rk locus in cowpea for resistance to root-knot nematodes has significance for plant breeding programs and R gene characterization. Abstract Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) is a susceptible host of root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) (RKN), major plant-parasitic pests in global agriculture. To date, breeding...
