Alicyclobacillus hesperidum sp. nov. and a related genomic species from solfataric soils of Sao Miguel in the Azores. (1/33)

Several acidophilic, slightly thermophilic or thermophilic Gram-positive isolates were recovered from solfataric soil at Furnas on the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that these organisms represented two novel species of the genus Alicyclobacillus. Strains FR-11T and FR-1b had an optimum growth temperature of about 50 degrees C, whereas strains FR-3 and FR-6T had an optimum growth temperature of about 60 degrees C. Biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics did not distinguish isolates FR-3 and FR-6T from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius; however, strains FR-11T and FR-1b could be easily distinguished from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris by the carbon source assimilation pattern and the fatty acid composition. On the basis of the phylogenetic analysis, physiological and biochemical characteristics, and fatty acid composition the name Alicyclobacillus hesperidum is proposed for the species represented by strains FR-11T and FR-1b; a formal name for the new genomic species represented by strains FR-3 and FR-6T is not proposed at this time.  (+info)

Marinitoga camini gen. nov., sp. nov., a rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the order Thermotogales, isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. (2/33)

A thermophilic, anaerobic, chemo-organotrophic sulfur-reducing bacterium, designated MV1075T, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal chimney sample collected on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were rod-shaped with a sheath-like outer structure, motile with polar flagella and stained Gram-negative. They appeared singly, in pairs or in short chains. The temperature range for growth was 25-65 degrees C, with an optimum at 55 degrees C. Growth was observed from pH 5 to pH 9, and the optimum pH was around 7. The salinity range for growth was 15-70 g sea salt l(-1) (corresponding to 10-45 g NaCl l(-1)), with an optimum at 30 g l(-1) (20 g NaCl l(-1)). The isolate was able to grow on a broad spectrum of carbohydrates or complex proteinaceous substrates. Sulfur was not necessary for growth. Growth was inhibited by H2, but, in presence of sulfur, this inhibition was removed and H2S was produced. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 29 mol %. Phylogenetic analyses of the 16S rRNA gene located the strain within the order Thermotogales, in the domain Bacteria. On the basis of 16S rDNA sequence comparisons, in combination with morphological and physiological characteristics, it is proposed that the isolate should be described as a novel species of a new genus, Marinitoga gen. nov., of which Marinitoga camini sp. nov. is the type species. The type strain is MV1075T (= CNCM 1-2413T = DSM 13578T).  (+info)

Prevalence of spondyloarthritis in Terceira, Azores: a population based study. (3/33)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA) in the Caucasian population of Terceira Island, Azores. METHODS: Study subjects were recruited from people over the age of 50 years from one half of the island of Terceira (n=24 561). Seventy eight men and 78 women from each five year age group were selected, giving a total of 468 men and 468 women available for study, of whom 490 agreed to take part. These subjects were assessed by dorsal, lumbar, and pelvic radiography. Radiological sacroiliitis was identified in eight patients on whom sacroiliac computed tomography scans were performed. HLA class I typing by polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primers was carried out in seven cases. RESULTS: SpA was present in eight subjects (1.6%, 95% CI 0.8 to 2.7%), including seven men (2.7%) and one woman (0.4%). Three (1.2% ) male patients with definite ankylosing spondylitis were HLA-B27 positive. Only one person had a previous diagnosis of SpA. CONCLUSION: These data complement previous studies in European countries on SpA prevalence and establish an estimate of the overall prevalence of SpA in a southern European population.  (+info)

Genetic differentiation reflects geological history in the Azorean land snail, Leptaxis azorica. (4/33)

The land snail Leptaxis azorica, endemic on the Azores, was subjected to an electrophoretic (allozymes) and morphometric (genital tract) analysis. Genetic distances suggest the presence of four distinct lineages and are compatible with colonisation proceeding from the eastern, older islands (Santa Maria and Sao Miguel) to the west (Flores and Corvo). On Sao Miguel, genetic and morphometric differentiation is concordant with the separate colonisation of two islands that gave rise to the current island 50,000 years ago. The maximum time available for differentiation in isolation (0.55 million years) suggests a high rate of allozyme change between the two lineages on Sao Miguel. This may be related to population isolation and bottlenecks caused by human and volcanic activity on Sao Miguel in relatively recent times. This is more prominent in the eastern region where populations are also characterised by reduced genetic variation (loss of alleles and heterozygosity) compared to populations elsewhere.  (+info)

Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense, sp. nov., a thermophilic hydrogen-oxidizing microaerophile from terrestrial hot springs in the Azores. (5/33)

Five hydrogen-oxidizing, thermophilic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, microaerophilic strains, with similar (99-100%) 16S rRNA gene sequences were isolated from terrestrial hot springs at Furnas, Sao Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal. The strain, designated Az-Fu1T, was characterized. The motile, 0.9-2.0 microm rods were Gram-negative and non-sporulating. The temperature growth range was from 50 to 73 degrees C (optimum at 68 degrees C). The strains grew fastest in 0.1% (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6, although growth was observed from pH 5.5 to 7.0. Az-Fu1T can use elemental sulfur, sulfite, thiosulfate, ferrous iron or hydrogen as electron donors, and oxygen (0.2-9.0%, v/v) as electron acceptor. Az-Fu1T is also able to grow anaerobically, with elemental sulfur, arsenate and ferric iron as electron acceptors. The Az-Fu1T G+C content was 33.6 mol%. Maximum-likelihood analysis of the 16S rRNA phylogeny placed the isolate in a distinct lineage within the Aquificales, closely related to Sulfurihydrogenibium subterraneum (2.0% distant). The 16S rRNA gene of Az-Fu1T is 7.7% different from that of Persephonella marina and 6.8% different from Hydrogenothermus marinus. Based on the phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics presented here, it is proposed that Az-Fu1T belongs to the recently described genus Sulfurihydrogenibium. It is further proposed that Az-Fu1T represents a new species, Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense.  (+info)

Understanding differences between phylogenetic and pedigree-derived mtDNA mutation rate: a model using families from the Azores Islands (Portugal). (6/33)

We analyzed the control region of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from maternally related individuals originating from the Azores Islands (Portugal) in order to estimate the mutation rate of mtDNA and to gain insights into the process by which a new mutation arises and segregates into heteroplasmy. Length and/or point heteroplasmies were found at least in one individual of 72% of the studied families. Eleven new point substitutions were found, all of them in heteroplasmy, from which five appear to be somatic mutations and six can be considered germinal, evidencing the high frequency of somatic mutations in mtDNA in healthy young individuals. Different values of the mutation rate according to different assumptions were estimated. When considering all the germinal mutations, the value of the mutation rate obtained is one of the highest reported so far in family studies. However, when corrected for gender (assuming that the mutations present in men have the same evolutionary weight of somatic mutations because they will inevitably be lost) and for the probability of intraindividual fixation, the value for the mutation rate obtained for HVRI and HVRII (0.2415 mutations/site/Myr) was in the upper end of the values provided by phylogenetic estimations. These results indicate that the discrepancy, that has been reported previously, between the human mtDNA mutation rates observed along evolutionary timescales and the estimations obtained using family pedigrees can be minimized when corrections for gender proportions in newborn individuals and for the probability of intraindividual fixation are introduced. The analyses performed support the hypothesis that (1) in a constant, tight bottleneck genetic drift alone can explain different patterns of heteroplasmy segregation and (2) in neutral conditions, the destiny of a new mutation is strictly related to the initial proportion of the new variant. Another important point arising from the data obtained is that, even in the absence of a paternal contribution of mtDNA, recombination may occur between mtDNA molecules present in an individual, which is only observable if it occurs between mtDNA types that differ at two or more positions.  (+info)

Ectopic calcification among families in the Azores: clinical and radiologic manifestations in families with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis and chondrocalcinosis. (7/33)

OBJECTIVE: Twelve families that were multiply affected with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and/or chondrocalcinosis, were identified on the island of Terceira, The Azores, potentially supporting the hypothesis that the 2 disorders share common etiopathogenic factors. The present study was undertaken to investigate this hypothesis. METHODS: One hundred three individuals from 12 unrelated families were assessed. Probands were identified from patients attending the Rheumatic Diseases Clinic, Hospital de Santo Espirito, in The Azores. Family members were assessed by rheumatologists and radiologists. Radiographs of all family members were obtained, including radiographs of the dorsolumbar spine, pelvis, knees, elbows, and wrists, and all cases were screened for known features of chondrocalcinosis. RESULTS: Ectopic calcifications were identified in 70 patients. The most frequent symptoms or findings were as follows: axial pain, elbow, knee and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint pain, swelling, and/or deformity, and radiographic enthesopathic changes. Elbow and MCP joint periarticular calcifications were observed in 35 and 5 patients, respectively, and chondrocalcinosis was identified in 12 patients. Fifteen patients had sacroiliac disease (ankylosis or sclerosis) on computed tomography scans. Fifty-two patients could be classified as having definite (17%), probable (26%), or possible (31%) DISH. Concomitant DISH and chondrocalcinosis was diagnosed in 12 patients. Pyrophosphate crystals were identified from knee effusions in 13 patients. The pattern of disease transmission was compatible with an autosomal-dominant monogenic disease. The mean age at which symptoms developed was 38 years. CONCLUSION: These families may represent a familial type of pyrophosphate arthropathy with a phenotype that includes peripheral and axial enthesopathic calcifications. The concurrence of DISH and chondrocalcinosis suggests a shared pathogenic mechanism in the 2 conditions.  (+info)

Human leptospirosis in Portugal: A retrospective study of eighteen years. (8/33)

INTRODUCTION: Leptospirosis, an under-recognized public health problem, needs to be confirmed through specific laboratory diagnosis. DESIGN: We describe herein a series of 4618 symptomatic patients for whom a microagglutination test (MAT) serology was available, representing a unique picture of human leptospirosis in central mainland Portugal and the Azores islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira, over eighteen- and twelve-year periods, respectively. RESULTS: The distribution of the 1024 (22%) cases identified was an average 57 cases per year, with higher frequency in males (67%). These represent the majority of leptospirosis notifications in Portugal, with a higher annual incidence rate in the islands, compared to the central mainland (11.1 and 1.7/100,000 population, respectively). Middle-aged adults (25-54 years) were most frequently infected (45%). Cases occurred mainly in December and January. Serovars from nine presumptive serogroups caused infection, with a predominance of Icterohaemorrhagiae, Pomona, and Ballum, accounting for 66% of cases. CONCLUSIONS: Seropositivity was associated with both anicteric and icteric leptospirosis. Several risk factors and a higher transmission risk in certain areas were emphasized. Leptospirosis was confirmed as a steadily increasing public health problem; good surveillance, communication, and laboratory support are thus necessary to reduce the impact of leptospirosis in areas at risk.  (+info)

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes are characterized by high levels of polymorphism and linkage disequilibrium (LD), important characteristics to study the genetic background of human populations and their genetic structure. Here, we analyse the allele distribution and LD extent of HLA class I and II in São Miguel Island population (Azores archipelago, Portugal). The sample set was composed of 106 healthy blood donors living in São Miguel Island obtained from the anonymized Azorean DNA bank. HLA class I (-A, -B and -Cw) and class II (-DRB1, -DQB1, -DPA1 and -DPB1) genotyping was performed by PCR-SSP Olerup SSP™ (GenoVision Inc.), according to the manufacturers instructions. Genetic diversity values, based on the 7 loci, ranged from 0.821 both for HLA-DPA1 and -DQB1 to 0.934 for HLA-B, with a mean value of 0.846. Analysis of 5 HLA-A-Cw-B-DRB1-DQB1 haplotypes revealed that A*01-Cw*07-B*08-DRB1*03-DQB1*02 is the most frequent in São Miguel (7.9%) followed by A*24-B*08-Cw*07-DRB1*03-DQB1*02 (3.8%).
The severity of the disease is related to the age of onset, with earlier onset associated with a more severe form of the disease. Symptoms can begin any time between early adolescence and about 70 years of age. MJD is also a progressive disease, meaning that symptoms get worse with time. Life expectancy ranges from the mid-thirties for those with severe forms of MJD to a normal life expectancy for those with mild forms. For those who die early from the disease, the cause of death is often aspiration pneumonia. The name, Machado-Joseph, comes from two families of Portuguese/Azorean descent who were among the first families described with the unique symptoms of the disease in the 1970s. The prevalence of the disease is still highest among people of Portuguese/Azorean descent. For immigrants of Portuguese ancestry in New England, the prevalence is around one in 4,000. The highest prevalence in the world, about one in 140, occurs on the small Azorean island of Flores. Recently, researchers have ...
Travelogue of fall trip to Portugal including Azores (Sao Miguel, Terceira, Faial, Pico), Madeira, Lisbon and Algarve with hotels, restaurants, places of interest and day trips.
The aim of this study was to verify the relation between body mass index (BMI) and sitting time in a sample of 4,091 Azorean men. BMI was calculated from self-reported weight and height. Total physical activity (PA) time and total sitting time were assessed with the IPAQ (short version). Linear Regression analysis showed that total sitting time (hours/day) was positively associated with BMI (B = 0.078; p | 0.001) after adjustments for age, meal frequency, alcohol and tobacco consumptions, island of residence, education level and total PA time. Although the cross sectional design precludes us from establishing causality, our findings emphasize the importance of reducing sedentary behavior to decrease the risk of obesity.

The island of Flores is the most westerly of the Azores archipelago (Portugal). Despite its marked geographic isolation and reduced population size, biodemographic and genetic studies conducted so far do not support the idea that its population constitutes a genetic isolate. In this study we conducted a surname analysis of the Flores population for two time periods: the second half of the 19th century and the present day. Our main purposes were (1) to biodemographically and genetically characterize the island, taking into account the strong reduction in population observed from the middle of the 19th century to the present day; and (2) to analyze the influence that the effective population size and geographic distance have on the genetic structure of populations. For both periods analyzed, all indicators of diversity revealed a high level of surname diversity. Our results are in accordance with the diversity estimates obtained from both monoparental genetic markers located in the Y chromosome and

Introduction. This study aimed to evaluate the screening performance of different measures of adiposity: body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) for high metabolic risk in a sample of adolescents. Methods. A cross-sectional school-based study was conducted on 517 adolescents aged 15-18, from the Azorean Islands, Portugal. We measured fasting glucose, insulin, total cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and systolic blood pressure. HOMA and TC/HDL-C ratio were calculated. For each of these variables, a Z-score was computed by age and sex. A metabolic risk score (MRS) was constructed by summing the Z-scores of all individual risk factors. High risk was considered when the individual had ≥1SD of this score. Receiver-operating characteristics (ROC) were used. Results. Linear regression analyses showed that, after adjusting for age and pubertal stage, all different measures of adiposity are positively and significantly associated with MRS in both sexes,

ABSTRACT: A wide range of anthropogenic activities are impacting the ecology of coastal areas. Exploitation of marine resources is one such activity, which, through cascading trophic effects, can have influences well beyond that of the target species. We investigated the mid-rocky-shore community structure of the Azores archipelago, a seldom-studied habitat, where there is a local tradition of exploiting limpets, the main intertidal grazers. The limpet population structure differed among islands, and there was an inverse relationship between the abundance of larger limpets and the human population per coastal perimeter, but not the associated catch data. At small scales of resolution (quadrats), there was a negative relationship between the cover of algae and limpets and a positive relationship between barnacles and limpets. These relationships were also apparent at the larger scale of islands as a function of the gradient of exploitation. Our results show how natural habitat fragmentation may ...

Pre-vi-ously, trav-el-ers want-ing to par-take in whale- and dol-phin-watch-ing off the Por-tuguese is-lands had to travel on far costlier na-tional and re-gional air-lines to reach the Azores.. "I have long dreamt of the Azores. A friend told me about the new low-cost flights and I flew here for 100 eu-ros ( US$110)," beamed Ital-ian tourist Pamela Massi, 33, mar-veling as she watched a group of dol-phins play-ing with the bow of her speed-boat in the clear blue wa-ter be-low..

Na insuficiencia cardiaca (IC) o comprometimento do fluxo sanguineo muscular na transicao do exercicio leve para o intenso pode reduzir temporariamente a pressao microvascular de O2 e diminuir a oferta de O2 do capilar para a mitocondria. No entanto, os avancos no tratamento medicamentoso da IC (por exemplo, os inibidores da enzima conversora de angiotensina e ƒÀ-bloqueadores de terceira geracao) poderiam ter melhorado a oferta microvascular de O2 a um ponto em que a lentidao da maquinaria metabolica intramuscular passaria a ser o fator limitante da resposta cinetica do consumo de oxigenio ( O2). O objetivo do presente estudo foi investigar a relacao dinamica entre oferta e utilizacao microvascular de O2 na transicao do exercicio leve (sem carga) para o intenso, em portadores de IC com tratamento otimizado e nao treinados, comparado a um grupo controle de individuos saudaveis. Foram incluidos 10 pacientes com IC com tratamento clinico otimizado (fracao de ejecao = 29 } 8%) e 11 controles ...
Objetivo: a maioria dos corpos estranhos aspirados para a via aérea é removida através de endoscopia respiratória. Em situações raras, a retirada deste material tem que ser realizada sob controle endoscópico, através de traqueotomia ou traqueostomia. A seguir, relatamos casos de crianças cuja remoção de corpos estranhos aspirados para a via aérea foi realizada por abertura traqueal. Descrição: revisão retrospectiva de prontuários, com relato de três crianças que aspiraram corpos estranhos para a via aérea. A primeira apresentou ruptura da cânula de traqueostomia, com aspiração da porção distal da mesma. Foi realizada remoção endoscópica através do traqueostoma. A segunda aspirou tampa de caneta, que não conseguia ser removida endoscopicamente, pois a mesma trancava e não passava na região subglótica. Foi realizado, então, traqueotomia cervical e remoção do corpo estranho sob controle endoscópico. A terceira apresentou corpo estranho aspirado para o brônquio ...

Fate had more in store for Miguel, and his timpani. And we all know that fate can be one cruel bitch. And so was Esmerelda. She came into Miguels life one evening after he had performed in Madrid. Dripping with diamonds, smelling of lilacs, with long, black hair that curled into long ropes that swung freely down her back, entwined with strands of pearls. For the first time, ever, Miguel was distracted away from his drum. Seductively, Esmerelda worked her magic on Miguel. The timpani began to look unkempt. Scratches began to appear, and once, in the heat of passion, Esmerelda threw a stiletto at it, denting it. Miguel failed to notice. So entranced by the witch, Esmerelda, Miguel failed to notice that no one wanted him and his timpani anymore. Until Esmerelda didnt want him, or his timpani, anymore. But by then, it was too late. The music had left him. His timpani would play no more. Dejected, Miguel scraped together enough money to go to a place where he hoped he could get a new start. He went ...

miguel at the @boweryhotel in New York, where @malinfezehai photographed him earlier this month. @miguels first headlining tour - for his new album #Wildheart - will bring him back to the city in August. On his first two albums, @miguel, 29, presented himself as a typical R&B figure. Now, hes claiming his own more specific identity: a songwriter who finds his hometown - Hollywood, beaches, the suburbs, the ghettos - both around and within himself. "I really am #LosAngeles," he said. "Not only in the sense that Im Mexican and black, and theyre the dominating ethnicities in this city, but in the energy of Los Angeles, and how everywhere you go theres this weird juxtaposition of hope and desperation. And thats my life, thats who I am."" By nytimes on Instagram.. ...
Yadier Molina has played the same amount of games as Trout. Yadier has struck out 84 less times, has 7 less RBIs, has 2 more 2Bs, and is batting .009 less that Trout. Yet, Yadier isnt being considered an MVP for his numbers. The catching position plays the most important defensive position of all positions, including CF. Miguel moved positions and played out of position the whole season to benefit his team. This is why I stand by my opinion that Miguel is clearly the MVP of the AL in 2012 ...
University of Maine - Darling Marine Center. With every bounce and roll of the ship we draw closer to our first dive location, a cluster of undersea mountains known only as Corner Rise. These seamounts are so remote and unexplored that individual peaks have yet to be officially named. Several days and a few hundred miles now separate us from the beautiful Azorean town of Ponta Delgada, where we boarded the ship.. We are making great time on the first leg of our trans-Atlantic journey. Word has just come from the bridge that the ship will arrive much earlier than expected at Corner Rise. This is welcome news to Dr. Allen Gontz, a geologist and geophyscist from UMass Boston. Dr. Gontz works on transforming the massive amount of data generated by the ship multibeam mapping system into bathymetric maps. These maps are essential to all the science operations on this cruise because ROV dive locations are chosen based on topographic information contained in the maps.. Many, many meetings have taken ...
DETROIT -- When Miguel Cabrera dove down the line to rob Wilson Ramos of an extra-base hit in the fifth inning Tuesday, he looked like the healthy, deceptively mobile third baseman he was before his abdominal strain started bothering him a month ago. A few pitches later, when he charged in from third on Chad Tracys slow roller, the injury that sidelined him for four games last week had flared up again.

The next day, "Miguel" (involved in the previous encounter on January 20) returns to the agreed location. Once outside his vehicle he sees the disc shaped object come out of the waters of Norrtalje Bay and hover close to the shore. Three creatures exit the craft and approach Miguel; they seem to be able to glide over the water. The tow new creatures introduce themselves as Ziros and Andrak. Andrak is slightly shorter than the other two. Miguel learns that the creatures have been visiting Earth from Reticuli 4 for several thousand years, but live here on Earth in secret bases in the sea and the mountains. They want to help us and assist researchers in different ways. Earlier they had helped Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. He was told that something very important will happen in medicine and physics in 2012. After 2020 there will be open contact with the space people. We must prepare ourselves. They have been aware of Miguel and had contact with his relatives a long time ago. They had also ...

Livraria Lello has housed men of arts and letters, has been the inspiration for acclaimed authors, a place for social gatherings, performances and a serene library for many of Invictas avid readers." This is how Livraria Lello describes itself and we couldnt agree more. Beatriz Maia went to the most beautiful bookstore in Porto and the world to tell you everything about it. Reed more to see how it was: Livraria Lello as we know it, opened in 1906 by the Lello brothers, men of the arts, letters and culture. Everyone who walks by Rua das Carmelitas cant help but to be stunned by the façade of the bookshop. The façade has a neo-gothic style that is amazing by itself. The façade has a neo-gothic style that is amazing by itself. However, the façade has to share some of the attention with two amazing figures that symbolize both art and science.

The Origin of Life has become the focus of those who want a scientific argument for the existence of an Intelligent Designer - God or some other substitute - and the argument linking the Origin with God is more or less the same. Spontaneous assembly is the usual strawman target of the argument - that a living cell formed de novo out of precursor chemicals in one giant leap. This Design Argument has a long pedigree, as it features in Platos "Timaeus", Ciceros "On the Nature of the Gods" and various early Christian writings. The formation of a living cell is likened to the assembly of a complex machine, like an old-style mechanical pocket watch or a Jumbo Jet. The process of chemical assembly is then likened to a tornado or some other energetic event sweeping in and then departing, leaving a working cell behind. Like all strawman arguments, this makes the proposition (spontaneous assembly) seem absurd, and leaves the inference of a Designer for the reader to come to.. Of course, as many people ...

Continental Portugal or mainland Portugal (Portuguese: Portugal continental) are terms used for the bulk of the Portuguese Republic, namely that part on the Iberian Peninsula and so in Continental Europe; having approximately 95% of the total population and 96.6% of the countrys land. Mainland Portugal is therefore commonly called by residents of the archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira Portuguese: o continente - the continent in all respects including minor elements of combined governance from Lisbon, the countrys capital. Before 1975, when the Portuguese territory stretched to several now-independent states in Africa, the designation metropolis (Portuguese: metrópole) was also used. The designation mainland Portugal is used to differentiate the continental territory of Portugal from its insular territory. The latter comprises the archipelagos of Madeira and Azores in the Atlantic Ocean. The Azores and Madeira are also commonly referred to as the autonomous regions (Portuguese: as regiões ...
SUMMARY. At the moment 9 seemingly independent families with the clinical diagnosis of MJD are known in Brazil. The largest family tree of Azorean ancestry contatins 622 individuals in 9 generations. 236 were examined, 39 found to be affected by two examiners. Pheno-types I, II and III were expressed by 12, 23 and 4 patients with age of onset by phenotypea being 10-48, 14-54 and 30-55 respectively. Although clinically more severe, juvenile onset type I disease did not show as severe a ponto-mesencephialic atrophy on MRI as the father with type II disease of similar symptomatic duration. None of the 8 patients examined with MRI showed olivary atrophy or pallidal abnormalities. 12 affected and 23 at risk were evaluated with neuropsychological tests. Attention was normal in both groups. Verbal memory scores were below normal in the affected and there was greater decay with time than in the risk group. Both scored below normal in identifying silluettes and constructional praxis. Visual memory scores ...
The three science instruments aboard the Global Hawk performed extremely well, transmitting their data back to NASA Wallops for the scientists to analyze and discuss. The plane observed Nadine for more than 12 hours. This was the 3rd flight of the Global Hawk to investigate this tropical storm. The forecasters at the National Hurricane Center were using the data supplied by NASAs Global Hawk and noted in the discussion of Nadine at 11 a.m. EDT on Sept. 20, "The current intensity is kept at 45 knots (51.7 mph/83.3 kmh)…is in good agreement with dropsonde data from the NASA global hawk aircraft and AMSU [instrument] estimates.". Nadines Current Status. As Nadine pulls away, a tropical storm warning was still in effect on Sept. 20 for the islands of Flores, Corvo, Faial, Pico, Sao Jorge, Graciosa, Terceira, Sao Miguel and Santa Maria in the Azores. These areas are also expected to continue dealing with rough ocean swells over the next few days.. On Sept. 20 at 11 a.m. EDT, Nadine was located ...
Portugal has two time zones and observes daylight saving time. Continental Portugal and Madeira use UTC+00:00, while the Azores use UTC-01:00. Daylight saving time (locally known as Hora de Verão, meaning summer time) is observed nationwide from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October, so that every year, continental Portugal and Madeira temporarily use UTC+01:00, and the Azores temporarily use UTC+00:00. In the early 19th century, Portugal adopted mean solar time. Navy (located in Lisbon) and Coimbra Astronomical Observatories calculated solar time to be used as legal time in their longitude regions. In 1861, the Astronomical Observatory of Lisbon was founded and, in 1878, it was tasked with the exclusive competence of calculate its mean solar time and to transmit it to rest of the countrys public services. Thus, in practice, Portuguese standard time was defined as the mean solar time at Lisbon Observatory longitude, which was later calculated as being GMT-00:36:44. In 1911, ...

Prado, M. de O.. Yamamoto, L. U.. Resumo. Nos Estados Unidos, estima-se que a taxa anual de mortalidade de casos diagnosticados de trombose venosa profunda (TVP) é de 5% e de embolia pulmonar é de 15 a 20%. A embolia pulmonar é a mais grave complicação de TVP, sendo a terceira maior causa de óbito. Fibrinólise ocorre quando há formação de coágulo no vaso sanguíneo que é lisado pela plasmina, originando os produtos de degradação da fibrina (Dímero-D), caracterizando a fibrinólise secundária. A fibrinólise primária (fibrinogenólise) é detectada pela presença dos produtos de degradação do fibrinogênio (PDF). Neste trabalho, foram analisadas 42 amostras de pacientes com alterações adquiridas de coagulação, com a detecção da presença do Dímero-D/PDF, por meio da prova de Cloridrato de Protamina (CP) e pelo método imunológico Cardiac D-Dimer (Roche) (DD). O estudo comparativo dos dois testes mostrou que 27 amostras (64,3%) foram positivas para a reação de CP, com ...
Ainda não existe um consenso na literatura sobre a ocorrência dos sinais e sintomas associada à erupção dos dentes decíduos. Sendo assim, os objetivos deste estudo foram estudar a relação entre a erupção dos dentes decíduos, os sinais e sintomas e o temperamento da criança; comparar os sinais e sintomas observados pelas mães com os obtidos pelo pesquisador ao exame clínico e avaliar a percepção e conduta das mães frente aos sinais e sintomas atribuídos à erupção dentária. Este estudo longitudinal foi composto por 30 mães e/ou responsáveis e seus filhos. Os dados foram coletados por meio de um questionário aplicado em forma de entrevista padronizada, do exame clínico e tabulados em planilhas do programa Microsoft Excel®.

The fin whale is the second longest of all of the baleen whales, and has the typical rorqual body form, which is long, slender and streamlined. Fin whales produce a tall columnar blow that can be six metres high. The fin whale is found in all of the worlds major oceans. It is a migratory species that spends the winter months in temperate mid-latitude waters where it gives birth and mates and then it migrates to higher latitudes for intensive summer feeding.
The behaviour evident for the various North Atlantic fin whale populations following earlier reductions through whaling differs. It ranges from clear evidence of recovery to no firm indications of any increase. An estimated 14,000 fin whales were killed off North Norway during 1876-1904, and a further 1,500 during 1948-71, but fin whales are rare there now (although quite abundant off western Spitsbergen, where about 1,500 whales had been killed during 1904-11) (Øien 2003, 2004). An estimated 12,000 fin whales were killed off Iceland during 1890-1915, until whaling was suspended partly due to concerns about the reductions in the stocks, but the modern abundance data suggest that the there has been a recovery in the population that may still be continuing, particularly west of Iceland, despite catches during 1948-89 averaging about 220 per year (Branch and Butterworth 2006). An estimated 10,000 fin whales were taken from the Faeroes, but about 25% of these were actually caught off eastern ...
San Miguel de Allende [http://www.visit-sanmiguel.com] is a small colonial town in the Bajio mountains of central Mexico, about 170 miles northwest of Mexico City. Founded as "San Miguel" in 1542 by a San Franciscan Monk named San Miguel El Grande, it became a centerpiece in the war for Mexican independence from Spain; it was renamed San Miguel de Allende after Ignacio Allende, a hero of the independence movement. In danger of becoming a ghost town in the early 20th century, the town was declared a national monument in 1926 and building became heavily restricted in the towns historic centro district, allowing the city to keep the colorful native facades that have become the backdrop of many famous works of art and even modern motion pictures.
