Efficiency of automotive cabin air filters to reduce acute health effects of diesel exhaust in human subjects. (1/39)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficiency of different automotive cabin air filters to prevent penetration of components of diesel exhaust and thereby reduce biomedical effects in human subjects. Filtered air and unfiltered diluted diesel exhaust (DDE) were used as negative and positive controls, respectively, and were compared with exposure to DDE filtered with four different filter systems. METHODS: 32 Healthy non-smoking subjects (age 21-53) participated in the study. Each subject was exposed six times for 1 hour in a specially designed exposure chamber: once to air, once to unfiltered DDE, and once to DDE filtered with the four different cabin air filters. Particle concentrations during exposure to unfiltered DDE were kept at 300 micrograms/m3. Two of the filters were particle filters. The other two were particle filters combined with active charcoal filters that might reduce certain gaseous components. Subjective symptoms were recorded and nasal airway lavage (NAL), acoustic rhinometry, and lung function measurements were performed. RESULTS: The two particle filters decreased the concentrations of diesel exhaust particles by about half, but did not reduce the intensity of symptoms induced by exhaust. The combination of active charcoal filters and a particle filter significantly reduced the symptoms and discomfort caused by the diesel exhaust. The most noticable differences in efficacy between the filters were found in the reduction of detection of an unpleasant smell from the diesel exhaust. In this respect even the two charcoal filter combinations differed significantly. The efficacy to reduce symptoms may depend on the abilities of the filters investigated to reduce certain hydrocarbons. No acute effects on NAL, rhinometry, and lung function variables were found. CONCLUSIONS: This study has shown that the use of active charcoal filters, and a particle filter, clearly reduced the intensity of symptoms induced by diesel exhaust. Complementary studies on vehicle cabin air filters may result in further diminishing the biomedical effects of diesel exhaust in subjects exposed in traffic and workplaces.  (+info)

Concentrated swine feeding operations and public health: a review of occupational and community health effects. (2/39)

Recent industry changes in swine-management practices have resulted in a growing controversy surrounding the environmental and public health effects of modern swine production. The numerous wastes produced by intensive swine production not only pose a significant challenge to effective environmental management but also are associated with decreased air quality in confinement houses, potentially transferable antimicrobial resistance patterns, and several infectious agents that can be pathogenic to humans. Published studies have documented a variety of contaminants, microbial agents, and health effects in those occupationally exposed to swine, and these have provided the groundwork for an increasing body of research to evaluate possible community health effects. Nonetheless, several factors limit our ability to define and quantify the potential role of intensive swine-rearing facilities in occupational and community health. Our incomplete understanding and ability to detect specific exposures; the complicated nature of disease etiology; pathogenesis; and surveillance; and the inherent difficulties associated with study design all contribute to the inadequate level of knowledge that currently prevails. However; an evaluation of the published literature; and a recognition of the elements that may be compromising these studies; provides the foundation from which future studies may develop.  (+info)

Numerical simulations to determine the most appropriate welding and ventilation conditions in small enclosed workspace. (3/39)

In order to improve arc welding work in a small enclosed workspace, numerical simulations were conducted to find the most appropriate welding and ventilation conditions, such as welding currents, hood position and flow rates with no blowhole formation. In the simulations, distributions of airflow vectors and fume concentrations were calculated for two hood opening positions: one faced a welder's breathing zone, the other a contaminant source. As a result it was predicted that a hood opening facing a breathing zone remarkably lowered the fume concentration in the breathing zone compared with that facing a contaminant source. The reliability was confirmed in CO2 arc welding experiments in the enclosed workspace by using a welding robot. In addition, the number of blowholes in welds, examined with x-ray, decreased with the increase in the welding current and with the decrease in the exhaust flow rate. These results showed that the fume concentration near welder's breathing zone and the number of blowholes could be reduced effectively by appropriate selection of the welding current and hood position, and it was confirmed that the numerical simulations were sufficiently useful to predict these appropriate welding conditions.  (+info)

Comparison of minimum space allowance standards for transportation of cattle by road from 8 authorities. (4/39)

Space allowance for animals in transit is a consistent concern in many countries developing codes of practice and regulations to assure humane treatment of food producing animals. Describing minimum space allowance requirements for cattle in transit has proven to be difficult, as the space required increases as the animal grows. Loading pressure, defined as weight of live animal per unit area, has proven to be a clear method of communicating with transporters and inspection staff what the maximum safe stocking limit is based on individual animal weight. The loading density recommendations in the Canadian code of practice for beef cattle are compared with other standards by using loading pressure charts as a visual aid. Loading pressure charts are recommended in preference to a tabular format to describe the minimal space allowed per animal for cattle transported by road.  (+info)

Environmental blue light prevents stress in the fish Nile tilapia. (5/39)

The present study aimed to test the effects of blue, green or white light on the stress response of the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (L.). Each color was tested on two groups of isolated adult Nile tilapia (8 replicates each): one being subjected to confinement stress, and the other not (control). A different environmental color was imposed on each compartment by covering the light source with cellophane of the respective color (green or blue; no cellophane was used for white light). The intensity of green, white and blue lights was 250, 590 and 250 lux, respectively. Basal plasma cortisol levels were determined for each fish prior to the experimental procedures. The fish were confined by being displaced toward one side of the aquarium using an opaque partition for 1 h both in the morning and the afternoon of the two consecutive days of the test. At the end of this 48-h period, plasma cortisol levels were measured again. Basal cortisol levels (ng/ml) were similar for each group (ANOVA, F(2;42) = 0.77, P = 0.47). Thus, plasma cortisol levels were analyzed in terms of variation from their respective basal level. After confinement, plasma cortisol levels were not increased in fish submitted to a blue light environment. Thus, blue light prevents the confinement-induced cortisol response, an effect not necessarily related to light intensity.  (+info)

Cumulative exposure to dust causes accelerated decline in lung function in tunnel workers. (6/39)

OBJECTIVES: To examine whether underground construction workers exposed to tunnelling pollutants over a follow up period of 8 years have an increased risk of decline in lung function and respiratory symptoms compared with reference subjects working outside the tunnel atmosphere, and relate the findings to job groups and cumulative exposure to dust and gases. METHODS: 96 Tunnel workers and a reference group of 249 other heavy construction workers were examined in 1991 and re-examined in 1999. Exposure measurements were carried out to estimate personal cumulative exposure to total dust, respirable dust, alpha-quartz, oil mist, and nitrogen dioxide. The subjects answered a questionnaire on respiratory symptoms and smoking habits, performed spirometry, and had chest radiographs taken. Radiological signs of silicosis were evaluated (International Labour Organisation (ILO) classification). Atopy was determined by a multiple radioallergosorbent test (RAST). RESULTS: The mean exposure to respirable dust and alpha-quartz in tunnel workers varied from 1.2-3.6 mg/m3 (respirable dust) and 0.019-0.044 mg/m3 (alpha-quartz) depending on job task performed. Decrease in forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) was associated with cumulative exposure to respirable dust (p<0.001) and alpha-quartz (p=0.02). The multiple regression model predicted that in a worker 40 years of age, the annual decrease in FEV1 would be 25 ml in a non-exposed non-smoker, 35 ml in a non-exposed smoker, and 50-63 ml in a non-smoking tunnel worker (depending on job). Compared with the reference group the odds ratio for the occurrence of new respiratory symptoms during the follow up period was increased in the tunnel workers and associated with cumulative exposure to respirable dust. CONCLUSIONS: Cumulative exposures to respirable dust and alpha-quartz are the most important risk factors for airflow limitation in underground heavy construction workers, and cumulative exposure to respirable dust is the most important risk factor for respiratory symptoms. The finding of accelerated decline in lung function in tunnel workers suggests that better control of exposures is needed.  (+info)

Effects of confinement (110 and 240 days) on neuroendocrine stress response and changes of immune cells in men. (7/39)

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of long-term confinement on stress-permissive neuroendocrine and immune responses in humans. Two groups of four male subjects were confined 240 days (group 240) or 110 days (group 110) in two space modules of 100 or 200 m3, respectively. During confinement, none of the volunteers developed psychic stress as could be examined and verified by a current stress test. However, in group 240 but not in group 110, the diurnal rhythm of cortisol secretion was slightly depressed and the urine excretion of norepinephrine significantly increased. The innate part of the immune system became activated as seen by a rise in the number of circulating granulocytes and the enhanced expression of beta2-integrins. In contrast, the ratio of T-helper to T-suppressor cells decreased. All these effects, observed during confinement, were even more pronounced in both groups when values of endocrinological and immunological parameters were compared between before and 1 wk after the end of the confinement period. Hence, return to normal life exerts pronounced effects to a much higher degree, irrespective of how long or under which conditions individuals were confined. Because the delayed-type hypersensitivity skin reaction against recall antigens remained unaffected, it is to be presumed that confinement appears to induce distinct sympathoadrenergic activation and immunological changes but no clinically relevant immunosuppression.  (+info)

Minimum space allowance for transportation of swine by road. (8/39)

Space allowance for animals in transit is a consistent concern in many countries that are developing codes of practice and regulations to assure humane treatment of food producing animals. The minimum space allowance requirements for a broad size range of swine in transit has not been well described or scientifically substantiated. A maximal loading pressure recommendation for pigs weighing from 5 to 250 kg was derived by a consultative process involving the swine transportation industry, animal welfare groups, and a literature review. The recommended maximal loading pressure under ideal conditions for swine loaded in groups can be described as a hoerl model y = (37.53)(0.9969)w(W0.5008), where y = loading pressure in kg body weight/m2 and W = average animal body weight in kilograms.  (+info)

If you werent aware, OSHA is in the process of establishing a new rule (could be years) for confined spaces in construction (here).. In the meantime, if you plan on entering a space that is confined, below is my standard answer: Get help!. What I mean by this is; obtain some assistance as early as you can. Ideally this might even be before you bid the job. I often suggest to send a superintendent or project manager to a 1/2 day training. Do not rely on the owner, or your general contractor to safely approve your employees entering this space. It is your job!. Although confined spaces are simple by definition (restricted opening, large enough to be in, and not meant to be occupied) , they can get complicated easily. The first thing to consider is what is/was in the space. Secondly, what are you bringing into it? If those two questions are answered completely, the dangers are usually identified.. When reviewing, consider: electrical, oxygen, engulfment, entrapment, access (ingress & ...

No matter what the hard risk sciences may tell us the facts are about a risk, the social sciences tell us that our interpretation of those facts is ultimately subjective.. This Risk Gap is very present in the maritime industry where were told so often of the importance of risk assessments to making operations like confined space entry safer. Confined space entry is perceived as a problem for tankers rather than other vessels. The fact is that two thirds of incidents happen on non-tank vessels. That may be why tanker owners, operators, officers and crew take a greater level of interest in confined space entry that, for example, their bulk-carrier equivalents..

OSHAs Compliance Directive for the 1993 PRCS Rule addresses this specific concern in an appendix containing a series of questions and answers on compliance issues. The appendix clarifies that the fact that a training publication for a confined space lists potential hazards such as biological agents, rodents, snakes and spiders, does not automatically mean that recognized serious hazards are present in the space. The classification of a confined space as permit-required is triggered only by the presence of hazards that could cause an acute illness or immediately disabling injury. The appendix emphasizes that, [t]he determination of whether the resulting exposure to a hazard in a confined space will impair the employees ability to perform self-rescue is the aspect that must be addressed by the employer. OSHA Instruction CPL 2.100 (May 5, 1995), App. E, Section (b), Question No. 10. Thus, hazards associated with biological agents, rodents, snakes, spiders and the like do not trigger ...

Chemical suicides can pose a great danger to responders and bystanders because a cloud of toxic gas may remain at the scene (confined space), waiting to be released as a door or window is opened. The materials used in the suicide may continue to off-gas for an extended period of time after initial generation, and toxic gases may remain in the victims lungs, clothing, or in the confined space. These gases are lethal at low concentrations and often cant be easily detected. If a chemical suicide is suspected, first responders should follow local response guidelines, take precautions, and wear proper personal protective equipment (PPE) and self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). The event should be treated as:. ...

From Grist Magazine) For decades, residents of Libby, Mont., had a love affair with mining. They bragged that Zonolite -- the brand-name insulation produced at their hometown mine -- had a hundred and one uses; to prove the point, they put it in their garden soil, their Little League ball fields, and even their bread. Then the love affair turned sour; current and former mine workers developed shortness of breath, became tethered to oxygen tanks, and developed rare, excruciating cancers. Worse, their wives, kids, and even some Libby residents with no connection to the mine started to develop similar problems -- all of them bearing the unmistakable symptoms of asbestosis. Still, it took dozens of deaths for Libby residents to admit that their company, W.R. Grace, had knowingly allowed mine workers and town residents to be poisoned with tremolite, a particularly nasty form of asbestos.

Meyer wrote that the Surgeon Generals opinion specifically stated that exposure to second-hand smoke to a child in any confined space is detrimental. He said if exposure in a car rose to the level of a criminal offense, then exposure in a house, building, camper or any other conceivable confined space would also be harmful. There is not a Nebraska law that specifically recognizes the exposure of children to second-hand smoke as a criminal act, Meyer wrote. Meyer said to lump the act into the child abuse statute was problematic. He said while most studies conclude its harmful, he could find no study that suggested it was probable that a childs health would suffer harms from exposure. Meyer wrote that history has examples of children who have been harmed and others who havent after both being exposed. He said no mathematical formula exists to determine harm and it would be impossible to find a medical expert who could testify that the simple act of exposure to second-hand smoke would ...
Natural convection boiling of water and surfactant solutions at atmospheric pressure in narrow horizontal annular channels was studied experimentally. The Alkyl (8-16) Glucoside with molecular weight of 390 g/mol was used in the experiments. It is a nonionic surfactant with negligible environmental impact. The length of the horizontal channels was 24 mm and 36 mm, the gape size was in the range of 0.45-3.7 mm, the heat flux was in the range of 20-500 kW/m2, the concentration of surfactant solutions was varied from 10 to 600 ppm. The gap size of the vertical channels was changed in the range of 1-80 mm. The flow pattern was visualized by high-speed video recording to identify the different regimes of boiling of water and surfactant solutions with different concentrations. At heat flux q,100 kW/m2 the rapid growth of elongated bubble was observed in the water. The rapid bubble growth pushes the liquid-vapor interface on both open sides of the channel. When a bubble departs from a nucleus cavity, ...

To our knowledge, studies on the heritability of cortisol response to stress in fish have been limited to salmonids [27-29] and cyprinids [21], which limits generalizations. In addition, lines with high and low cortisol response to stress have been selected in rainbow trout [29]. However, the heritability of cortisol response to stress appears to be variable even among related species: 0.27-0.50 in rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss[27, 29, 30] and 0.60 in carp [21], but only 0.05 in Atlantic salmon Salmo salar[27, 31]. These discrepancies can be partly explained by the differences in species and methodologies used to determine the cortisol response. It should be noted that the time-dependence of cortisol response to stress is a key element and a potential source of error. However, the methodology used in our study seems reliable since no apparent drift in cortisol levels with time was observed after applying the confinement stress (Figure 1). A comparative study on stunning methods used in ...

An in situ oil shale retort is formed in a subterranean formation containing oil shale. The retort contains a fragmented permeable mass of particles comprising kerogen and various inorganic carbonates. A processing zone is established in the fragmented mass of formation particles and advanced therethrough. Off-gas, including carbon dioxide from carbonate decomposition, is withdrawn from the retort. The carbon dioxide content of the withdrawn off-gas, being a function of the processing zone temperature, is then determined. The determined carbon dioxide content of the withdrawn off-gas is then compared to values of carbon dioxide content of off-gas predicted as a function of processing zone temperature.

Objectives This paper presents the results of a pilot study of the job-specific modules developed for use in the study questionnaire of the Northern California Childhood Leukemia Study (i) to estimate the variability in response between people administered the same module and (ii) to estimate the number of modules required per family.. Methods For 63 participants in the pilot study, between-person variability was assessed by comparing reported job tasks among the respondents administered the same job-specific module. Within-respondent variability was assessed by examining changes in the timing and frequency of the job tasks and product use across critical time segments from 12 months before the childs birth to 3 years of age. Parental occupational histories were reviewed to estimate the expected number of job-specific modules required per family.. Results Considerable variability was identified for the tasks performed by the respondents with similar jobs and in the timing of tasks and products ...

Sally Rides tampons might be the most-discussed tampons in the world. Before Ride became the first American woman in space, scientists pondered her tampons, weighed them, and NASAs professional sniffer smelled them-better to take deodorized or non-deodorized?-to make sure they wouldnt smell too strongly in a confined space capsule. Engineers considered exactly how many she might need for a week in space. (Is 100 the right number?, they famously asked her. No, Ride said. That is not the right number.). The engineers were trying to be thoughtful, though; reportedly they packed the tampons with their strings connected so that they wouldnt float away. I imagine Sally Rides tampons hovering like sausage links in the space shuttle, and wonder if the male astronauts ever came across them and, embarrassed, tried to float quickly away.. All this is to say that menstruation clearly made NASA squirm. Before women went into space, there were not only the sadly typical concerns that women would become ...
15. Copyright ChemD AQ Inc. (2014) Page 15 of 16 CM - 118 - A - 0.01 does not fix it. It is far better to get the sterilizer serviced (sometimes small gas/vapor leaks are an indicator that maintenance is required) and if that fails to solve the problem, then adapt work practices as discussed previously to c rack the door open and use the monitor to tell employees when they can safely approach to unload the sterilizer. Another common question is whether a monitor for heavier gases and vapors should be placed low because the gas sinks in air. Those who did Che mistry may remember the experiments with pouring heavy gases and vapors like nitrogen dioxide and bromine that form brown clouds that sink to the floor. In some applications where the air is static (man - holes, grain silos and other confined space entry) st ratification of gases by mass is an important issue. People who go down manholes sometimes put their monitors at ankle height while descending, so that they will hear an alarm before ...

Dairy Workers: Suffocating in Manure - Jordon Barab of Confined Space talks about a recent Washington Post story on a truly horrific agricultural hazard, and just one of many. There were 6,700 injuries on dairy farms with more than 11 employees in 2015 - a rate more than double the average for private industries. On those farms, 43 laborers died. Barab notes that the article fails to mention that, due to a 40 year old Congressional budget rider, OSHA is not allowed to set foot on farms that have ten or fewer employees. No inspections, even as a result of a worker complaint, and no ...
Project Description. Cells utilize different mechanisms to migrate based on the microenvironments the cells reside in: on two-dimensional surfaces, cell migration is mostly driven by actin polymerization; in confined spaces, it can be driven by water permeation, which comes from polarized distribution of membrane ion channels and directional ion fluxes across the cell. Tumor cells typically reside in compact microenvironments where the interstitial fluid has elevated hydrostatic pressure. This high pressure provides an ideal environment for cell migration driven by water permeation. Breast cancer is in particular known for its diverse clinical classifications, expressing different levels of membrane proteins including ion channels and gap junctions. This diversity allows elevated directional ion fluxes in certain breast cancer subtypes and enhances cell migration, leading to aggressive cancer phenotype, poor prognosis, and high tendency to metastasis. Collective cell migration, where a cluster ...
Liquids in narrowly confined spaces have properties that are very different from those of the bulk. In this thesis three different systems with semi-confined water have been studies using computer simulations. The first is a molecular dynamics study of liquid water between parallel plates subjected to an external electric field. Unlike earlier simulations, this system is open to a heat and particle bath. A uniform electric field between the plates is seen to deplete the water density in this region, in contrast to predication of earlier studies. The second study is a Monte Carlo simulation of water inside a carbon nanotube. We study the electric field dependence of the equilibrium between the empty and filled states of the nanotube. We also investigate the electric field dependence of the equilibrium between the up and down states of the filled tube that correspond to two orientations of the total dipole moment of the water chain along the tube axis. A two-state statistical mechanics model shows

One of the goldfish just died this morning. There were two of them, one wholly orange, one with its bottom half silver. And less than 12 hours ago, the silver-bellied one lies at the bottom of the temporary fishbowl - just a plastic container actually. Nobody realised it died till my bro came back from school at round 2pm. Yeah i had been sleeping till late afternoon.. again. The strange thing is, i dreamed that same goldfish died last night. Coincidence. Strange. It didnt seem to want to eat the night before. Maybe that explains its death. Or my dream.. Yeah its just a goldfish, its life not celebrated, its death not mourned. It did not even get buried, let alone get a funeral. Just a flush down the toilet. I dont want to think where itll end up.. Thats life for a goldfish. Living in a fishbowl its whole life. Doing nothing except eat and swim round and round the same confined space. Until finally death liberates it from this watery hell. It lives for the pleasure of us humans. I dont ...

If CO2 is a pollutant then every one of us is intrinsically pollution. With each breath we inhale about 4% of the mass of CO2 we exhale each breath. Each year we each exhale about 0.35 tonne of CO2. Given there is about 7 billion of us that means we are adding about 2.4 billion tonnes of the polluting stuff to the atmosphere each year. How much CO2 is too much? Industrial safe standards for workers in say confined spaces is 10,000 ppm for a period of 8 hours. Thats about 25 times the present concentration of CO2 in Earths atmosphere. Fifteen minutes is about all a healthy adult human can take at 30,000 ppm of CO2. Thats why a canary is a useful tool if one is into exploring deep caves etc.. When a few of us gather in places with limited ventilation such as movie houses CO2 concentrations of 1000 ppm are quite common.. What happens if we inhale very high concentrations of oxygen?. Oxygen toxicity is a condition resulting from the harmful effects of breathing molecular oxygen (O2) at ...
Im not into demonstrative affection, much to my husbands chagrin. (Hes so excited to soon have another woman in the house who will hopefully shower him with more affection than I do.) My personal mantra has always been You stay in your space and Ill stay in mine and well both be happy. Well, Ive come to realize as Ive gotten more and more pregnant, that personal space no longer exists for me. My burgeoning belly seems to be public property, especially now that Im at the point where baby is breakdancing and performing other dance moves inside such a confined space. One of our close friends a few weeks ago asked if he could fee the baby kick. I said to him that at that point, my husband was the only one who could put his hands down my underwear, thank you very much. I guess non-pregnant people dont realize that babies arent automatically up towards your belly button when they first start swimming around. ...

The structural changes occurring in a 5.2 mol % 1-octene homogeneous ethylene-1-octene copolymer sample during a cooling and heating cycle at 10 degreesC/min are described in detail using DSC, AFM, SALLS, and synchrotron WAXD and SAXS. The DSC cooling curve exhibits two exothermic maxima where the high-temperature maximum marks out the temperature window associated with primary crystallization (spherulite nucleation and growth). The morphology after spherulite impingement is characterized by local differences in crystallinity. Secondary crystallization by lamellar insertion is fastest in the largest amorphous areas and results in a spatial homogenization of the crystallinity at a given temperature between the two DSC maxima. The small low-temperature DSC peak is associated with the nucleation of small or imperfect crystals in the confined spaces between existing crystals. During heating, regions with different degrees of crystallinity develop again, An evaluation method for SAXS linear ...

What was it like working with such a great cast like Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and Martin McCann?. Great, yeah. Ive been a big fan of their work for a long time, and Id met them both before socially and really liked them as people. It was just really great working with them, and they both have very different approaches, but theyre two of the finest actors working in Ireland at the moment or anywhere really. We had a lot of fun, a lot of good craic on set. It was a lot of men in small confined spaces, so it was a bit like a football dressing room so spirits were high and it was all good fun.. How was it working with director and writer Stephen Burke?. Fantastic, Ive known Stephen for a little bit through his wife Jane Doolan, the producer. I made a movie with her in Sardinia three or four years back, so I hung around with Stephen a bit then, and he had mentioned Maze to me, and I read his novels that I think are really strong, the Good Italian, so I knew him a bit socially, and I think hes a ...
DOCK8 mutations result in an inherited combined immunodeficiency characterized by increased susceptibility to skin and other infections. We show that when DOCK8-deficient T and NK cells migrate through confined spaces, they develop cell shape and nuclear deformation abnormalities that do not impair chemotaxis but contribute to a distinct form of catastrophic cell death we term cytothripsis. Such defects arise during lymphocyte migration in collagen-dense tissues when DOCK8, through CDC42 and p21-activated kinase (PAK), is unavailable to coordinate cytoskeletal structures. Cytothripsis of DOCK8-deficient cells prevents the generation of long-lived skin-resident memory CD8 T cells, which in turn impairs control of herpesvirus skin infections. Our results establish that DOCK8-regulated shape integrity of lymphocytes prevents cytothripsis and promotes antiviral immunity in the skin.
The gear train increases the mechanical advantage of a ratchet in direct proportion to the gear ratio of the multiplier.. For instance, using a Snap-on GA184A torque multiplier, which has a gear ratio of 4.0:1, and then applying 100 lb ft of input, the result will provide approximately 400 lb ft of torque to a threaded fastener.. The Snap-on Industrial torque multiplier can be applied to situations where there is a high torque and confined space.. The torque multiplier will help ensure a users fasteners are properly tightened and can help improve worker efficiency, thus leading to increased productivity.. Snap-on Industrial recommends using the Torqometer with its multipliers.. It is extremely accurate, to within +/-2 per cent of reading from 20 per cent of full scale to full scale.. The Torqometer is suitable for applications where accuracy is required and where a torque multiplier is more convenient than a wrench.. The indicator has a male square drive on the bottom that interfaces with the ...

A health care provider may order imaging tests to evaluate brain abnormalities in patients who have nervous system symptoms often seen with Wilson disease, or in patients diagnosed with Wilson disease. Health care providers do not use brain imaging tests to diagnose Wilson disease, though certain findings may suggest the patient has the disease.. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). An MRI is a test that takes pictures of the bodys internal organs and soft tissues without using x rays. A specially trained technician performs the procedure in an outpatient center or a hospital, and a radiologist-a doctor who specializes in medical imaging-interprets the images. The patient does not need anesthesia, though people with a fear of confined spaces may receive light sedation, taken by mouth. An MRI may include the injection of a special dye, called contrast medium. With most MRI machines, the patient will lie on a table that slides into a tunnel-shaped device that may be open ended or closed at one end. ...

R. Y. Zhao, S. Yang, and E. Q. Chen. Department of Polymer Science and Engineering and Key Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry and Physics of Ministry of Education, College of Chemistry, Peking University, Beijing 100871, China. Recently, we are interested in side-chain liquid crystalline (LC) polymers bearing the hemiphasmid side-chain that contains a rod-like mesogen linked with a half-disk end group [1-3]. We found that they could self-organize into the hexagonal and/or rectangular columnar LC phase when the size of flexible tails on the half-disk was properly chosen and the dimension of columnar lattice could approach to 10 nm easily. It is identified that the supramolecular column in the columnar phase shall contain several chains (e.g., ~5 chains) laterally associated together rather than a single chain. This multi-chain column provides a new type of physical crosslinking. Namely, within the confined space of the column the backbones and pendant groups of the polymer can get entangled. Using ...

A few months ago, my dad told me about his MRI experience. Well, actually, thats not true. My dad told me he would never do another MRI if his life depended on it, and that told me what I needed to know. There are a lot of differences between myself and my dad, but a few things are the same: We hate being out of control of our circumstances, and we dont like confined spaces. (We also love peanut butter and pickle sandwiches, but thats beside the point. How can I be hungry again? Oh yeah, I didnt eat for a zillion hours.) So I knew the MRI would be bad. They didnt let me take my barf bag with me, because lets face it, they strapped me in. Yes, Strapped Me In. I didnt watch any of this, because ye frakkin gods, but I know this: They pulled up the sides of what I was on, they placed some kind of plastic dinner tray over my chest, and they put something over my face like a bubble or something. I had the iv with the fluid bag draining into my arm, and I kind of crossed my arms over my stomach ...
SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO. An epidermoid cyst (Epidermal Inclusion cyst, Infundibular cyst), is a benign growth commonly found in the skin and typically appears on the face, neck or trunk, but can occur anywhere on the body. Another name used is sebacous cyst but this is actually an antiquated misnomer, and is not a term used by dermatologists. They are also the most common type of cutaneous cysts. Epidermoid cysts result from the reproduction of epidermal cells within a confined space of the dermis. The pasty contents are mostly composed of macerated keratin (wet skin cells), which creates this cheesy consistency, and there can be a pungent odor. An epidermoid cyst may have no symptoms and are typically harmless. Usually people seek removal because they dont like the appearance of these bumps, or the cyst has ruptured or been inflamed or infected in the past. Rupture is associated with sudden redness, pain, swelling, and local heat, and can lead to abscess formation. Also, a history of ...

The incident site (south power mound) was located outside in the southern porti
While examining the engine bay, Mark draws attention to the rather concealed nose gear support structure. It resembles a small anodized girder rather than your typical aircraft component and beneath the cowling the torque tube is thicker and sturdier than others I have seen. Mark describes the nose gear as having a 9-inch stump load, referring to the size of concealed stump it could strike and survive. This same nose gear has steering to 17.5 degrees either side of centre but can castor up to 55 degrees, allowing the aircraft to effectively pivot on one main landing gear and turn in very confined spaces. Again, every design feature has a purpose, even if it is not obvious at first sight.. Perhaps this is most poignantly present in the Kodiaks main landing gear. The two legs extend from the fuselage, with large 29in tyres at their end. However, the true strength of the main gear is concealed by the aerodynamic fairings that streamline the leg and the join between the fuselage and gear. Each ...
It makes me so happy to say that Tootsie is doing great. Right now shes sleeping in her crate beside my desk. The door is open, but she loves it there. The only places she likes as well are 1) being in bed with me, 2) being on the couch or 3) being by herself in the crate in the back of the car. She likes it so well in the car crate that I am actually having to train to leave it. Im assuming this is baggage from her puppy mill days and that she feels most secure and comfortable in a small, confined space.. Shes progressed so well in so many ways: Im especially taken with her flipping around mid-air when outside after I call her to come, ears flying like a furry dumbo, her open, happy mouth taking up half of her tiny little Cavalier head. As I mentioned in an earlier post, now that house training is behind us (wheee!), she can be outside off leash as long as I watch her like a hawk and keep her close to the house, she no longer barks to wake us up and produce her dinner, so its time to ...
