Abstract Recent technological advancements?most notably the proliferation of tracking technologies (GPS), real-time surveying techniques, and ambulatory sensing?have allowed researchers to advance empirical investigation interaction between space emotion. Over past few years, two approaches assessment spatial-emotional interactions have emerged: emotion using subjective self-reported measures exploration objective physiological emotional...

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate an innovative approach for closing retinal tears using DuraSeal? (DS) hydrogel sealant in a rabbit model. Methods: Retinal detachment with small tear performed on 20 New Zealand rabbits. Thereafter, rabbits were divided into two groups; the experimental group received transscleral injection 0.1 ml DS subretinal space whereas control sham saline. Eyes clinically evaluated indirect ophthalmoscopy,...

Abstract We study water management in the context of a prototypical economy containing main sources and user sectors. A policy consists allocation from each source to sector at point time as well capital investments needed carry out these allocations. show that optimal brings stocks (infrastructure equipment) well-specified turnpike processes rapidly possible evolves along turnpikes thereafter, eventually converging unique steady state....

Real time, or quantitative, PCR typically starts from a very low concentration of initial DNA strands. During iterations the numbers increase, first essentially by doubling, later predominantly in linear way. Observation number molecules experiment becomes possible only when it is substantially larger than numbers, and then possibly affected randomness individual replication. Can copy still be determined? This classical problem and, indeed,...

Performance measures such as alpha and the Sharpe ratio are typically based on sample returns net of fees. This implies same weighing to However, return parameters noisy estimates true parameters, while fees known with certainty. Thus, intuition suggests that should be given more weight than returns. The authors formalize this intuition, derive optimal overweighing They show resulting generalized performance better predictors future standard...

Primate-specific Alu short interspersed elements (SINEs) as well rodent-specific B and ID (B/ID) SINEs can promote Staufen-mediated decay (SMD) when present in mRNA 3?-untranslated regions (3?-UTRs). The transposable nature of SINEs, their presence long noncoding RNAs, interactions with Staufen, rapid divergence different evolutionary lineages suggest they could have generated substantial modification posttranscriptional gene-control networks...

Red blood cell (RBC) transfusion is a life-saving procedure whose primary objective to sustain tissue and organ oxygenation. However, there growing concern regarding the risks in of packed red cells (PRBC), as numerous studies have reported negative outcomes, including reduced perfusion. RBC unique flow-affecting properties, specifically adherence vessel wall endothelium, deformability, self-aggregability, which define their hemodynamic...

Multidimensional Scaling (MDS) is a classical technique for embedding data in low dimensions, still widespread use today. Originally introduced the 1950's, MDS was not designed with high-dimensional mind; while it remains popular analysis practitioners, no doubt should be adapted to regime. In this paper we study under modern setting, and specifically, high dimensions ambient measurement noise. We show that, as noise level increase, suffers...

Animal movement is fundamental for ecosystem functioning and species survival, yet the effects of anthropogenic footprint on animal movements have not been estimated across species. Using a unique GPS-tracking database 803 individuals 57 species, we found that mammals in areas with comparatively high human were average one-half to one-third extent their low footprint. We attribute this reduction behavioral changes individual animals exclusion...

Flexible, stretchable electroluminescent fibers are of significance to meet the escalating requirements increasing complexity and multifunctionality smart electronics. We report a alternating current (ACEL) fiber by low-cost all solution-processed scalable process. The ACEL provides high stretchability, decent light-emitting performance, with excellent stability nearly zero hysteresis. It can be stretched up 80% strain. Our device maintained...

A key component of scientific inquiry, especially inquiry devoted to developing mechanistic explanations, is delineating the phenomenon be explained. The task phenomena, however, has not been sufficiently analyzed, even by new philosophers science. We contend that Marr?s characterization what he called computational level (CL) provides a valuable resource for understanding involved in phenomena. Unfortunately, distinctive feature level, his...

Fungi transcriptionally upregulate expression of azole efflux pumps and ergosterol biosynthesis pathway genes when exposed to antifungal agents that target biosynthesis. To date, these transcriptional responses have been shown be dependent on the presence azoles and/or depletion ergosterol. Using an inducible promoter regulate Neurospora crassa erg11, which encodes major target, sterol 14?-demethylase, we were able demonstrate CDR4 pump can...
