Preparation of antibodies directed to the Babesia ovata- or Theileria sergenti-parasitized erythrocytes. (1/319)

To investigate the surface antigens of the bovine red blood cells (RBCs) parasitized by Babesia ovata or Theileria sergenti, attempts were made to produce monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with BALB/c mice. Comparable numbers of hybridomas producing anti-piroplasm mAbs, as well as anti-bovine RBC mAbs, were obtained from the mice immunized with B. ovata- or T. sergenti-PRBCs. However, mAbs directed to the surface of parasitized RBCs (PRBCs) were obtained only from the mice immunized with B. ovata-PRBCs, but not from those immunized with T. sergenti-PRBCs. When serum samples from the immunized mice and the infected cattle were examined, antibodies recognizing B. ovata-PRBC surface were detected in the sera against B. ovata, but analogous antibodies were undetectable in the sera against T. sergenti, despite that the sera showed substantial antibody titers to T. sergenti piroplasms. The results suggest that significant antigenic modifications occur on the surface of B. ovata-PRBCs, but not on the surface of T. sergenti-PRBCs.  (+info)

Detection of enzootic babesiosis in baboons (Papio cynocephalus) and phylogenetic evidence supporting synonymy of the genera Entopolypoides and Babesia. (2/319)

Blood smear evaluation of two baboons (Papio cynocephalus) experiencing acute hemolytic crises following experimental stem cell transplantation revealed numerous intraerythrocytic organisms typical of the genus Babesia. Both animals had received whole-blood transfusions from two baboon donors, one of which was subsequently found to display rare trophozoites of Entopolypoides macaci. An investigation was then undertaken to determine the prevalence of hematozoa in baboons held in our primate colony and to determine the relationship, if any, between the involved species. Analysis of thick and thin blood films from 65 healthy baboons (23 originating from our breeding facility, 26 originating from an out-of-state breeding facility, and 16 imported from Africa) for hematozoa revealed rare E. macaci parasites in 31%, with respective prevalences of 39, 35, and 12%. Phylogenetic analysis of nuclear small-subunit rRNA gene sequences amplified from peripheral blood of a baboon chronically infected with E. macaci demonstrated this parasite to be most closely related to Babesia microti (97.9% sequence similarity); sera from infected animals did not react in indirect fluorescent-antibody tests with Babesia microti antigen, however, suggesting that they represent different species. These results support an emerging view that the genus Entopolypoides Mayer 1933 is synonymous with that of the genus Babesia Starcovici 1893 and that the morphological variation noted among intracellular forms is a function of alteration in host immune status. The presence of an underrecognized, but highly enzootic, Babesia sp. in baboons may result in substantial, unanticipated impact on research programs. The similarity of this parasite to the known human pathogen B. microti may also pose risks to humans undergoing xenotransplantation, mandating effective screening of donor animals.  (+info)

Simultaneous detection of bovine Theileria and Babesia species by reverse line blot hybridization. (3/319)

A reverse line blot (RLB) assay was developed for the identification of cattle carrying different species of Theileria and Babesia simultaneously. We included Theileria annulata, T. parva, T. mutans, T. taurotragi, and T. velifera in the assay, as well as parasites belonging to the T. sergenti-T. buffeli-T. orientalis group. The Babesia species included were Babesia bovis, B. bigemina, and B. divergens. The assay employs one set of primers for specific amplification of the rRNA gene V4 hypervariable regions of all Theileria and Babesia species. PCR products obtained from blood samples were hybridized to a membrane onto which nine species-specific oligonucleotides were covalently linked. Cross-reactions were not observed between any of the tested species. No DNA sequences from Bos taurus or other hemoparasites (Trypanosoma species, Cowdria ruminantium, Anaplasma marginale, and Ehrlichia species) were amplified. The sensitivity of the assay was determined at 0.000001% parasitemia, enabling detection of the carrier state of most parasites. Mixed DNAs from five different parasites were correctly identified. Moreover, blood samples from cattle experimentally infected with two different parasites reacted only with the corresponding species-specific oligonucleotides. Finally, RLB was used to screen blood samples collected from carrier cattle in two regions of Spain. T. annulata, T. orientalis, and B. bigemina were identified in these samples. In conclusion, the RLB is a versatile technique for simultaneous detection of all bovine tick-borne protozoan parasites. We recommend its use for integrated epidemiological monitoring of tick-borne disease, since RLB can also be used for screening ticks and can easily be expanded to include additional hemoparasite species.  (+info)

Southern extension of the range of human babesiosis in the eastern United States. (4/319)

We sought evidence of babesiosis in three residents of New Jersey who were suspected of local acquisition of Babesia microti infection. We tested serial blood samples from these residents for B. microti antibodies and amplifiable DNA by using immunofluorescent antibody and PCR techniques. All three residents experienced symptoms suggestive of acute babesiosis. The sera of each of the patients reacted against babesial antigen at a titer fourfold or higher in sequentially collected blood samples. PCR-amplifiable DNA, characteristic of B. microti, was detected in their blood. These data suggest that human B. microti infections were acquired recently in New Jersey, extending the range of this piroplasmosis in the northeastern United States.  (+info)

Detection of equine antibodies to babesia caballi by recombinant B. caballi rhoptry-associated protein 1 in a competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (5/319)

A competitive-inhibition enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (cELISA) was developed for detection of equine antibodies specific for Babesia caballi. The assay used recombinant B. caballi rhoptry-associated protein 1 (RAP-1) and monoclonal antibody (MAb) 79/17.18.5, which is reactive with a peptide epitope of a native 60-kDa B. caballi antigen. The gene encoding the recombinant antigen was sequenced, and database analysis revealed that the gene product is a rhoptry-associated protein. Cloning and expression of a truncated copy of the gene demonstrated that MAb 79/17.18.5 reacts with the C-terminal repeat region of the protein. The cELISA was used to evaluate 302 equine serum samples previously tested for antibodies to B. caballi by a standardized complement fixation test (CFT). The results of cELISA and CFT were 73% concordant. Seventy-two of the 77 serum samples with discordant results were CFT negative and cELISA positive. Further evaluation of the serum samples with discordant results by indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA) demonstrated that at a serum dilution of 1:200, 48 of the CFT-negative and cELISA-positive serum samples contained antibodies reactive with B. caballi RAP-1. Four of five CFT-positive and cELISA-negative serum samples contained antibodies reactive with B. caballi when they were tested by IFA. These data indicate that following infection with B. caballi, horses consistently produce antibody to the RAP-1 epitope defined by MAb 79/17.18.5, and when used in the cELISA format, recombinant RAP-1 is a useful antigen for the serologic detection of anti-B. caballi antibodies.  (+info)

Isolation of a new subspecies, Bartonella vinsonii subsp. arupensis, from a cattle rancher: identity with isolates found in conjunction with Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti among naturally infected mice. (6/319)

Bacteremia with fever due to a novel subspecies of Bartonella vinsonii was found in a cattle rancher. The subspecies shared major characteristics of the genus Bartonella in terms of most biochemical features and cellular fatty acid profile, but it was distinguishable from other subspecies of B. vinsonii by good growth on heart infusion agar supplemented with X factor and by its pattern of enzymatic hydrolysis of peptide substrates. DNA relatedness studies verified that the isolate belonged to the genus Bartonella and that it was genotypically related to B. vinsonii. The highest level of relatedness was observed with recently characterized strains from naturally infected mice that were coinfected with Borrelia burgdorferi and Babesia microti. We propose the name Bartonella vinsonii subsp. arupensis subsp. nov. as the new subspecies to accommodate these human and murine isolates.  (+info)

Coinfection with multiple tick-borne pathogens in a Walker Hound kennel in North Carolina. (7/319)

Both dogs and humans can be coinfected with various Ehrlichia, Bartonella, Rickettsia, and Babesia species. We investigated a kennel of sick Walker Hounds and their owners in southeastern North Carolina for evidence of tick-borne infections and associated risk factors. A high degree of coinfection was documented in the dog population. Of the 27 dogs, 26 were seroreactive to an Ehrlichia sp., 16 to Babesia canis, and 25 to Bartonella vinsonii, and 22 seroconverted to Rickettsia rickettsii antigens. According to PCR results, 15 dogs were infected with Ehrlichia canis, 9 with Ehrlichia chaffeensis, 8 with Ehrlichia ewingii, 3 with Ehrlichia equi, 9 with Ehrlichia platys, 20 with a Rickettsia species, 16 with a Bartonella species, and 7 with B. canis. The detection of DNA from any Ehrlichia species was associated with clinical illness and with concurrent B. canis infection (by PCR). Both E. canis and an uncharacterized Rickettsia species appeared to result in chronic or recurrent infection. Death in the dog population was associated with living in a dirt lot rather than the concrete kennel. Of 23 people on whom serologic testing was conducted, eight were seroreactive to Bartonella henselae, one to E. chaffeensis, and one to R. rickettsii antigen; however, none had clinical or hematologic abnormalities consistent with illness caused by these organisms. We conclude that kennel dogs with heavy tick exposure can be infected at a high rate with multiple, potentially zoonotic, tick-borne pathogens. In addition, our findings further illustrate the utility of PCR for documenting coinfection with tick-transmitted pathogens.  (+info)

Development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. (8/319)

Studies were made on the development of Babesia gibsoni in the midgut of the larval tick, Rhipicephalus sanguineus. Six hr after repletion, merozoites of B. gibsoni, freed from erythrocytes, were observed in the midgut contents of the tick. After that, within 24 hr, those merozoites were transformed into the ring-forms which were relatively large, 2-3 microns in diameter. Later, the ring forms developed into the spherical forms which were subelliptical in shape and 4-6 microns in diameter. Within 2-4 days, the elongated forms, 5-8 microns in length, were found. At this time, some of the binucleated fusion form has assumed a form intermediate between the spherical and elongated-forms. About 5-6 days after repletion, large round or elliptic zygotes, 8-10 microns in diameter, were observed in the tick gut.  (+info)

Babesiosis is a globally important zoonotic disease caused by tick-borne intraerythrocytic protozoan of the genus Babesia (phylum apicomplexa). In China, there are five species that infect cattle buffalo and cause great economic loss, which include Babesia bigemina, Babesia bovis, Babesia major, Babesia ovata and Babesia orientalis . Among them, B. orientalis is the most recently identified new Babesia species epidemic in China. This review summarized the work done in the past 33 years to give an overview of what learned about this parasite. This parasitic protozoan was found in 1984 in Central and South China and then named as B. orientalis in 1997 based on its differences in transmitting host, morphology, pathogenicity and characteristics of in vitro cultivation when compared with B. bigemina and B. bovis. It was found that Rhipicephalus haemaphysaloides is the transmitting vector and water buffalo is the only reported host. Phylogenetic analysis based on the 18S rRNA gene also confirmed that B.
Babesia species are protozoan parasites that develop in the erythrocytes of vertebrate hosts and are transmitted transovarially and transstadially by Ixodid ticks. Ovine babesiosis is an important disease in the livestock with high morbidity and mortality, thereby, resulting in high economical losses worldwide. B. motasi and B. ovis are both capable of causing either acute or chronic disease with symptoms similar to those seen in cattle. B. ovis produces mild disease of short duration, whereas B. motasi causes fatal disease in acute cases. Like all Babesia organisms, sheep that recover from babesiosis become asymptomatic carriers. VetPCR Babesia sp. Detection Kit is the direct detection of Babesia sp. on the basis of a genetic database, so it can diagnose very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 3 hours for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast, accurate and reliable technique.
Canine babesiosis remains a major concern over large parts of South Africa [1]. The main causative organism, Babesia rossi, has only been reported from sub-Saharan Africa. The less virulent Babesia canis (sensu stricto), transmitted by Dermacentor reticulatus, is restricted to Europe, while the least virulent Babesia vogeli, transmitted by Rhipicephalus sanguineus (sensu lato), has a cosmopolitan distribution that includes sub-Saharan Africa. Female Haemaphysalis elliptica (and presumably also Haemaphysalis leachi [2]) ticks, having become infected with B. rossi when engorging on infected hosts, transmit the infection transovarially. Larvae of the next generation and nymphs remain infected while engorging primarily on small rodents; B. rossi is transmitted when next-generation adults engorge, primarily on carnivores [3, 4].. Domestic dogs have been present for centuries or even millennia in sub-Saharan Africa, but they are not native to the region [5]. Since B. rossi and its vector(s) only occur ...
Babesia spp. are protozoal organisms that parasitize erythrocytes, causing anemia in the host. B. canis and B. gibsoni are two organisms commonly known to infect dogs. Babesia canis is thought to cycle primarily between domestic dogs and Rhipicephalus sanguineus, the brown dog tick. Cases of canine babesiosis may present with a wide variation of severity of clinical signs, ranging from a hyperacute, shock-associated, hemolytic crisis to an inapparent, subclinical infection. VetPCR B.canis Detection Kit is the direct detection of Babesia canis on the basis of a genetic database, so it can detect very fast and accurately. It can amplify only specific gene using the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) method, and take only 3 hours for detection. Therefore, it is a very fast, accurate and reliable technique.
As ticker said. Night sweats are hallmark with babesia. Bart and lyme can have night sweats too but they are slightly more pronounced with babesia. They can become severe on the 3rd or 4th day of babesia treatment. Meds such as bactrim, biaxin, doxy or plaquenil are mildly anti-babesia so they can calm many of the babs symptoms but the babesia is almost always still there. This can sometimes fool the patient or doctor. Some other symptoms to accompany babesia are depression, lack of appetite, sometimes liver pain, losing your breath just going up a short flight of stairs, skin itching on the back of neck etc. But im sure you know. Lyme and bartonella can cause some of these symptoms also, that was my reason for the "treat them all regardless approach". And im still not 100% convinced that mepron/zithromax or malarone/zithromax is the answer. Very little research has been done on babesia so we dont know everything. And just because it is similar to malaria, does not mean it will behave exactly ...
To increase understanding of human bacterial and parasitic pathogens in bats, we investigated the prevalence of Babesia spp., Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii in bats from China. Bats were captured from Mengyin County, Shandong Province of China using nets. DNA was extracted from the blood and spleen of bats for molecular detection of Babesia spp., Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii with specific primers for each species. A total of 146 spleen samples and 107 blood samples of insectivorous bats, which belonged to 6 species within two families, were collected from Mengyin County, Shandong Province of China. We found that two Eptesicus serotinus (2/15, 13.3%) were positive for Babesia vesperuginis. We were unable to detect genomic sequences for Rickettsia spp., Anaplasma spp. and Coxiella burnetii. To our knowledge, our study showed for the first time the presence of Babesia vesperuginis in Eptesicus serotinus collected from China, suggesting that Babesia
Glycosylphosphatidylinositols (GPIs) are glycolipids described as toxins of protozoan parasites due to their inflammatory properties in mammalian hosts characterized by the production of interleukin (IL)-1, IL-12 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α. In the present work, we studied the cytokines produced by antigen presenting cells in response to ten different GPI species extracted from Babesia divergens, responsible for babesiosis. Interestingly, B. divergens GPIs induced the production of anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-2, IL-5) and of the regulatory cytokine IL-10 by macrophages and dendritic cells. In contrast to all protozoan GPIs studied until now, GPIs from B. divergens did not stimulate the production of TNF-α and IL-12, leading to a unique Th1/Th2 profile. Analysis of the carbohydrate composition of the B. divergens GPIs indicated that the di-mannose structure was different from the evolutionary conserved tri-mannose structure, which might explain the particular cytokine profile they ...

Equine piroplasmosis is significant tick-borne disease with wide distribution. The prevalence of equine piroplasmosis in Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina is unknown. In aim to obtain a first insight into the prevalence we performed molecular epidemiological study which included 142 horses, on seven locations in these three countries. We first performed PCR for the detection of a 450bp long section of the 18S rRNA of piroplasma-specific region. For all positive samples we have done multiplex PCR for the species detection. Species determination was further confirmed by sequencing PCR products of 10 randomly selected Theileria equi and all Babesia caballi samples. The overall prevalence rates in analysed region for T. equi and B. caballi were 22.5% and 2.1%, respectively. Possible risk factors (such as location, age, sex and activity) associated with PCR positivity were evaluated. Marked differences were found in prevalence between geographic areas. There was no significant association ...

ABSTRACT. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a positive major acute-phase protein in dogs and can be used as a predictive marker for risk of disease and to monitor the response to treatment. Increased concentrations in certain diseases are associated with poor outcome. This cross-sectional, observational study of 75 dogs naturally infected with Babesia rossi was designed to examine the relationship between outcome and CRP concentration at admission and the magnitude of CRP change 24 hours after admission. Diagnosis was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and reverse line blot. CRP concentrations were determined by an automated human CRP Turbidometric Immunoassay, previously validated for use in dogs. There was no significant difference in mean CRP concentration between survivors (n = 57), 107.5 ± 49.5 mg/l and non-survivors (n = 11), 122.1 ± 64.6 mg/l at admission and using the exact logistic regression, adjusting for age and sex, there was no association with outcome (P = 0.53). Multiple ...

There was no significant difference in mean CRP concentration between survivors (n = 57), 107.5 ± 49.5 mg/l and non-survivors (n = 11), 122.1 ± 64.6 mg/l at admission and using the exact logistic regression, adjusting for age and sex, there was no association with outcome (P = 0.53).

By Jason Graziadei I&M Senior Writer The number of patients diagnosed with tick-borne diseases on Nantucket has risen sharply this year to 338 confirmed cases, already well above last years total, with tick season still in full swing and more positive test results sure to come. Nantucket Cottage Hospitals infection-control nurse Charlene Chadwick reported 262 confirmed cases of Lyme disease, 59 positive tests for babesiosis, and 17 cases of ehrlichiosis so far in 2008, all
It has been in the news that some dogs in Essex have been infected with Babesia Canis and become very ill. This is news because these dogs had not travelled outside the UK, and Babesia had not previously been endemic in the UK, although commonly occurring in Europe.. What is Babesiosis?. Babesiosis is a tick borne disease which causes destruction of red blood cells resulting in anaemia and jaundice. Acutely affected dogs appear depressed, weak and are disinclined to eat (anorexic). They have pale membranes (e.g. lips, eye lids or tongue) and often have a fever. The passing of very dark coloured urine is also frequently noted. The disease cannot be passed directly from one animal to another. It is only spread by bites from ticks infected with the protozoan (one celled) parasite, Babesia.. Babesiosis is common in many parts of the world including large parts of Southern Europe.. What is the cause of the disease?. The disease is caused by protozoan (single celled) organisms. Babesia canis is the ...
Cabinet Veterinaire International. Seven things every dog owner needs to know about tick-borne Babesia and Piroplasmosis infection. Call 022 755 55 33 for more.
Babesiosis is yet another common tick borne disease. It is caused by a protozoan blood infection, Babesia canis or Babesia gibsoni and carried by a variety of ticks. The protozoa break down the dogs red blood cells and create an anemic condition. The infected tick must feed on the dog for 2 to 3 days in order for the dog to become infected. Symptoms include weakness, jaundice, fever and red or orange colored urine. While the level of infection can be reduced, a dog infected with Babesia will remain a carrier and could have recurrent anemic problems for the balance of his life. By avoiding areas frequented by ticks, such as woods, fields and park areas, you can minimize the possibility of your dog becoming infected by one of the tick borne diseases. If your dog is an avid outdoor dog and joins you on hikes or hunting trips, using some sort of flea and tick prevention will also help avoid infection, although it is not foolproof. Be sure to check your dog for ticks each day or immediately after a ...
Mike and Meg fell in love with Nantucket during their first summer there 25 years ago. Since then, theyve spent every summer on the sandy beaches and cobblestone roads of the idyllic Massachusetts getaway. Now that their two girls are out of college, they are ready to make their Nantucket dream come true, so a local realtor gives the lively couple a tour of the islands distinct homes to help them turn their summer break into a permanent vacation.

Prevalence of equine Piroplasmosis and its association with tick infestation in the State of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Brazilian Journal of Veterinary Parasitology. 18(4):1-8. Interpretive Summary: The recent finding of horses infected with Babesia (Theileria) equi within the United States has increased the need to understand the transmission risks associated with this long-term infection of horse red blood cells. This study used assays which detect antibody to the two parasites which cause babesiosis in horses, Babesia (Theileria) equi and Babesia caballi. Use of these assays in the State of Sao Paulo in Brazil defined the percentage of horses infected with either of these parasites. Also the study identified certain ticks which were associated with infection and these data help direct studies in the United States at defining which ticks are capable of transmitting one or both of the above listed ...

Few people are better acquainted with Nantucket Cottage Hospital from a patients perspective than island tile-layer and fisherman David Goodman.. Over his many years on the island, Goodman has been a patient in the Emergency Department after a cerebral hemorrhage. Hes stayed for a week on the inpatient floor suffering from liver disease. And hes utilized the hospitals outpatient rehabilitation services frequently for his recoveries, as well as countless visits to Dr. Tim Lepores primary care office.. "I got better care here than I would have got anywhere," Goodman said. "I had incredible attention. Its a real personal touch being here, and what I mean by that is the nurses and doctors went out of their way to take care of me. It was beyond Im just doing my job. and that was a big thing for me."

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Jude Deveraux returns to the magnificent, sunny island in For All Time, the second novel in her Nantucket Brides trilogy-this time featuring the next generation of her beloved family of Montgomery-Taggerts. The wedding of Alix Madsen and Jared Montgomery is a glorious affair at an elegant little chapel in the woods, followed by dinner and dancing, all while moonlight blankets the festivities in a romantic glow. While most guests are fixed on the happy couple, Jareds cousin Graydon cant look away from a bridesmaid, Toby Wyndam. Its not just her quiet beauty that enthralls him or the way she makes him laugh. Toby possesses the truly remarkable ability of being able to distinguish Graydon from his identical twin brother, Rory. According to family legend, such a gift marks her as Graydons True Love.

During some stages in their life cycle, Plasmodium spp. (malaria), Babesia spp., Trypanosoma spp., Leishmania donovani, and the filariae are detectable in human blood. Plasmodium and Babesia species are found within the RBCs; trypanosomes and microfilariae, the larval stage of filariae, are found outside the RBCs; and Leishmania amastigotes are occasionally found within monocytes. Trypanosomes and microfilariae, which frequently are present in low numbers, exhibit motility in freshly collected blood films, and this can aid in their detection. However, species identifications of all blood parasites are usually made from either or both of two types of stained blood films: a thin film and a thick film. These films can be made from whole or anticoagulated blood or from the sediment of a variety of procedures designed to concentrate trypanosomes and microfilariae in the blood. Although the films are clearest when stained with Giemsa stain, many infections are detected and diagnosed by using Wright's

My daughter gave me this book for a Christmas present and what a gift. Ive read a lot by this author and shes wonderful. Her books are set on Nantucket Island, which is where I spent my honeymoon, a thoroughly romantic setting which I long to return to but have only revisited through literature.

fugitive slave, Baptist minister, and abolitionist leader on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, was born the son of his wealthy white owner and Mary, one of his fathers slaves on a plantation in Virginia. No account has been found yet which reveals his fathers name or how James Crawford himself was named. Though stories about how and when he escaped slavery are in conflict, all of them agree that his white half brother broke his promise to their dying father to free Crawford. Instead, Crawford was sent into the fields to work. His obituary in the Nantucket Inquirer and Mirror claimed that he escaped the first time by running to Florida to live among the Seminole Indians for two years as a preacher The same account claimed that his half brother then the master of the plantation spent a fortune to recapture him and then strung him up by the thumbs .... ...

Complete regression of a transplantable fibrosarcoma of mice was induced in an average of 86% of animals receiving repeated subcutaneous injections of an extract of the bone marrow from cattle harbouring Babesia parasites. Extracts from cattle harbouring Theileria mutans produced regression of tumours in an average of 63% of the recipients. Splenic extracts from the same animals and bone marrow extracts from an anaplasmosis carrier were less effective. Bone marrow extracts from control animals known to be free from these infections did not enhance the survival of tumour-bearing mice ...
I followed up asking if they had secured factory locations in both Sweden and the USA, and he replied: "We already have a secured situation in the USA, not yet in Sweden.". The "Ecat SK" is the name Rossi is giving to the higher powered E-Cat reactors, named after Swedish physicist Sven Kullander who was an early supporter and advisor. Rossi wrote: "Yes, we decided to dedicate to Sven Kullander the high energy reactors. We are strongly indebted with him and I will never forget that he, while fighting for his health in the last days of his life, still helped our work with his priceless suggestions.". Another interesting point came in a reply to a question from Raffaele Bongo who asked whether the resonance of the hydrogen ion could be behind the Rossi effect. Rossi answered:. ...

Lighthouses have come and gone over the years for a variety of reasons. Some have been worn away by the elements or consumed by storms, others shaken down by earthquakes, and still others have collapsed from erosion. Sadly, many have also been purposely burned to the ground to make room for modern replacements, which usually consist of automated towers that utilize the most current technological navigational aids.. The Great Point Light on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts, has a long history of tragic destruction. The original wooden structure was destroyed by fire and rebuilt in stone. But because both the Great Point Light and the nearby Cross Rip lightship utilized fixed-light lenses, confusion between the two lead to frequent shipwrecks in the area during the second half of the 19th century. Red panels were then added to the Great Point Lights lens to help remedy the shipwreck problem. The Great Point Light endured for many years until it was eventually destroyed again, this time by a storm ...
The SS Andrea Doria was an Italian ocean liner with the home port of Genoa. She was named after Andrea Doria, a 16th-century admiral from the city. As always seems to be the case with ships that go down, the Andrea Doria was the pride of the fleet and was deemed to be the biggest, fastest and safest of Italys ships in the fifties. Her end came in 1956 when she collided with the MS Stockholm off the coast of Nantucket Island. Such was the damage to the side of the vessel that she quickly and severely listed to starboard, rendering half her lifeboats unusable. Nonetheless, 1,660 crew and passengers were rescued by vessels that came to her aid. Only 46 lives were lost, mainly in the collision itself. The Andrea Doria capsized and sank eleven hours after the collision. 71. Alien: Prefix : XENO- ...

Well-worn on the campaign stump, Rossis story begins at his appearance at a Mabton rally for cattlemen struggling to recover from the mad cow scare. The former state senator notes the conservative-leaning Washington Farm Bureau scored his voting record as 100 percent in step with its agenda. A grandson of immigrants and a self-made millionaire, Rossi is considered by many the GOPs first viable gubernatorial candidate in two decades. Rossi, in turn, avoids some wedge-issue topics such as embryonic stem cell research, abortion and gay marriage. The question is, can the former senator from Sammamish -- with a reputation for charm, but a record far enough to the right to win him a 100 percent approval rating from the Washington Conservative Union -- sell it to enough Washingtonians? Rossi, 45, is an officer with a downtown Seattle commercial real estate company, but he acknowledges he rarely goes into the office. [...] hes spent most of his time since resigning his Senate seat in December traveling
Theres apparently a lot going on at the moment with manufacturing and R&D - although not on a mass-production level. We dont have details on who has made the first orders, but from what Rossi has said, he seems to refer to at least two customers - one being the parent company that used the energy from the Doral plant, and the other being a district heating customer in Sweden.. Interesting that he says there will be a "presentation" of the QuarkX prototype this year - that sounds like a newsworthy event if it happens. I hope we get more details on that. Rossi has always talked about his hope for "massive" production of the E-Cats. If it works as he says, I can understand the excitement, but there will be a lot to do to get mass production set up, especially with the current lawsuit pending. Rossi has said recently that he is spending 40 per cent of his time on the legal case.. ...
There is no rivalry in MotoGP more bitter than that between Valentino Rossi and Casey Stoner, more bitter even than the one between Wayne Rainey and Kevin Schwantz. It has been a constant element in their relationship since Stoner won his first MotoGP title in 2007 (ironically, Stoner named Rossi as one of his heroes on the t-shirt he wore to celebrate that championship), though hardly a surprise, as the two men are polar opposites in almost every respect, except for their prodigious talent. The rivalry has intensified over the years, stoked by a series of incidents (nicely outlined by the peerless Italian website GPOne.com recently), including the booing of Stoner by Rossi fans at Donington in 2008, the epic battle at Laguna Seca in 2008, and the war of words between the two in 2010, ahead of Rossis move to Ducati..

Last year, when Tigger was hospitalized for IMHA, the lab made a mistake and they treated her for babesia as well. When I was told she was going to die no matter the plasma transfusions and everything else they have tried , the Dr. at the time also told me that a mistake was made by the lab. While she fought the lab to return the money for the testing and some of the vet care, it did not help the fact that my poor dog spent her last days voming as a result of the meds for babebesia.When I was told about the babesia, I rushed to test all my dogs at the time (4). I found my invoice for it, dated 26 Jan 2011. The veterinary facility on base sent out the blood, to the Vector Borne Disease Diagnostic Laboratory in NC, per my request.They called me when it returned, all dogs negative.I trusted them to read a fizzle negative or positive on a lab paperwork ...

Cold patch", or cold asphalt, is the temporary remedy to fix potholes during cold weather. The Town uses it throughout the island on asphalt surfaces only during the winter months. Cold patch is a polymer technology that is soft and sticky out of the bag, but quickly hardens after application. The end result is a temporary pavement patch with good adhering properties, but only useful during the winter when hot asphalt is not available.. Cold patch is also very expensive. It costs approximately $200/ton and it also has constraints: 1) it requires special handling, 2) needs to be kept covered, 3) it must be stored under cover to retain its adhesive properties, and 4) it tends to leak oils at certain temperatures. As a result, the Town does not "just cold patch everything" but rather applies this solution where and when appropriate ...
