A successful pregnancy in a patient with secondary hypertension caused by adrenal adenoma: a case report

Secondary hypertension is a rare complication in pregnancy that causes poor outcomes, such as preeclampsia, premature delivery, intrauterine growth retardation, stillbirths, spontaneous abortion or intrauterine death. Cushing’s disease caused by an adrenal adenoma is rare during pregnancy and may be overlooked by obstetricians and physicians, but can lead to hypertension...

\( {R}_{D^{\left(*\right)}},{R}_{K^{\left(*\right)}} \) and neutrino mass in the 2HDM-III with right-handed neutrinos

Abstract Given that the two-Higgs-doublet model of type III (2HDM-III) has the potential to address the \( {R}_{D^{\left(*\right)}} \) anomalies while the resolution to the \( {R}_{K^{\left(*\right)}} \) deficits requires new degrees of freedom within this framework, we consider in this paper a unified scenario where the low-scale type-I seesaw mechanism is embedded into the 2HDM...

Cross-listing and CSR performance: evidence from AH shares

This study investigates the association between corporate social responsibility (CSR) performance and cross-listing. In a clean setting where a change in CSR performance can be attributed to the cross-listing, we find a statistically significant and economically meaningful increase in CSR performance for the cross-listed firms. Moreover, such an increase comes mostly in technical...

Dystrophic Adipocytes Mimicking Metastatic Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma: A Diagnostic Pitfall in a Cachectic Patient

Study on Bottom Damp-Proof Method of Cave Dwelling

The cave dwelling, as one of the most typical and traditional characteristic local housing styles in the loess area of Northwest China, has been adopted widely in many areas since ancient times. The construction of the cave dwellings supports environmental protection, makes use of innovative construction technology, and preserves historical cultural heritage. The cave dwellings...

Probing signatures of bounce inflation with current observations

The aim of this paper is to probe the features of the bouncing cosmology with the current observational data. Basing on bounce inflation model, with high derivative term, we propose a general parametrization of primordial power spectrum which includes the typical bouncing parameters, such as bouncing time-scale, and energy scale. By applying Markov Chain Monto Carlo analysis with...

An Emergency Decision Making Method Based on Prospect Theory for Different Emergency Situations

Emergency decision making (EDM) is an effective way to deal with emergency situations because of its prominent role in alleviating the losses of properties and lives caused by emergency events. It has drawn increasing attention from both governments and academia, and become an important research topic in recent years. Studies show that decision makers are usually guided by...

Influence of Spiral Angle on the Performance of Spiral Oil Wedge Sleeve Bearing

Spiral angel is an important structure parameter of spiral oil wedge sleeve bearing, which produces greater impact on bearing performance. Based on JFO boundary condition, the generalized Reynolds equations considering four slip conditions are established. Using the concept of partial derivatives, stiffness and damping coefficients of sleeve bearing are calculated. The results...

Numerical Simulation of Rock Plate Cutting with Three Sides Fixed and One Side Free

In order to overcome conical pick wear in the traditional rock cutting method, a new cutting method was proposed on account of increasing free surface of the rock. The mechanical model of rock plate bending under concentrated force was established, and the first fracture position was given. The comparison between experimental and numerical results indicated that the numerical...

System Dynamics Modeling of Chinese Urban Housing Markets for Pedagogical and Policy Analysis Purposes

This paper reports on the current state of a project to develop a system dynamics (SD) model for urban housing markets in China, aimed at facilitating policy analysis and supporting practical educational tools that might reach large numbers of potential entrepreneurs in China. Although numerous academic papers have applied SD models to real estate markets over the past generation...

Thinning of antenna array via adaptive memetic particle swarm optimization

Massive multiple input multiple output antenna array is crucial for the fifth generation wireless communication. Proper antenna array design can reduce interference among different signals and generate desirable beamforming. Sparse antenna array is able to form narrower beam with lower sidelobe than equally spaced antenna array given the same number of array elements. However...

Constraints on inflation revisited: an analysis including the latest local measurement of the Hubble constant

We revisit the constraints on inflation models by using the current cosmological observations involving the latest local measurement of the Hubble constant (\(H_{0} = 73.00\pm 1.75\) km s \(^{-1}\) Mpc\(^{-1}\)). We constrain the primordial power spectra of both scalar and tensor perturbations with the observational data including the Planck 2015 CMB full data, the BICEP2 and...

Radio and Clutter Suppression Algorithm Based on Spatial Multiple Beams for Small-Aperture HFSWR

Radio and clutter that cover a certain number of range-Doppler-angle cells have a major impact on the detection performance of a high-frequency surface wave radar (HFSWR) system. Especially for a small-aperture array, the angle spectrums of radio and clutter suffer from severe broadening, so the targets that are more easily submerged in the broadened radio and clutter can be...
