Anopheles gambiae Ag-STAT, a new insect member of the STAT family, is activated in response to bacterial infection. (1/388)

A new insect member of the STAT family of transcription factors (Ag-STAT) has been cloned from the human malaria vector Anopheles gambiae. The domain involved in DNA interaction and the SH2 domain are well conserved. Ag-STAT is most similar to Drosophila D-STAT and to vertebrate STATs 5 and 6, constituting a proposed ancient class A of the STAT family. The mRNA is expressed at all developmental stages, and the protein is present in hemocytes, pericardial cells, midgut, skeletal muscle and fat body cells. There is no evidence of transcriptional activation following bacterial challenge. However, bacterial challenge results in nuclear translocation of Ag-STAT protein in fat body cells and induction of DNA-binding activity that recognizes a STAT target site. In vitro treatment with pervanadate (vanadate and H2O2) translocates Ag-STAT to the nucleus in midgut epithelial cells. This is the first evidence of direct participation of the STAT pathway in immune responses in insects.  (+info)

Calcium and cAMP are second messengers in the adipokinetic hormone-induced lipolysis of triacylglycerols in Manduca sexta fat body. (2/388)

We have previously shown that stereospecific hydrolysis of stored triacylglycerol by a phosphorylatable triacylglycerol-lipase is the pathway for the adipokinetic hormone-stimulated synthesis of sn -1, 2-diacylglycerol in insect fat body. The current series of experiments were designed to determine whether cAMP and/or calcium are involved in the signal transduction pathway for adipokinetic hormone in the fat body. After adipokinetic hormone treatment, cAMP-dependent protein kinase activity in the fat body rapidly increased and reached a maximum after 20 min, suggesting that adipokinetic hormone causes an increase in cAMP. Forskolin (0.1 micrometer), an adenylate cyclase activator, induced up to a 97% increase in the secretion of diacylglycerol from the fat body. 8Br-cAMP (a membrane-permeable analog of cAMP) produced a 40% increase in the hemolymph diacylglycerol content. Treatment with cholera toxin, which also stimulates adenylate cyclase, induced up to a 145% increase in diacylglycerol production. Chelation of extracellular calcium produced up to 70% inhibition of the adipokinetic hormone-dependent mobilization of lipids. Calcium-mobilizing agents, ionomycin and thapsigargin, greatly stimulated DG production by up to 130%. Finally, adipokinetic hormone caused a rapid increase of calcium uptake into the fat body. Our findings indicate that the action of adipokinetic hormone in mobilizing lipids from the insect fat body involves both cAMP and calcium as intracellular messengers.  (+info)

Urate synthesis in the blood-sucking insect rhodnius prolixus. Stimulation by hemin is mediated by protein kinase C. (3/388)

Hemin is a catalyst of the formation of reactive oxygen species. We proposed that hematophagous insects are exposed to intense oxidative stress because of hemoglobin hydrolysis in their midgut (Petretsky, M. D., Ribeiro, J. M. C., Atella, G. C., Masuda, H., and Oliveira, P. L. (1995) J. Biol. Chem. 270, 10893-10896). We have shown that hemin stimulates urate synthesis in the blood-sucking insect Rhodnius prolixus (Graca-Souza, A. V., Petretsky, J. H., Demasi, M., Bechara, E. J. H., and Oliveira, P. L. (1997) Free Radical Biol. Med. 22, 209-214). Once released by fat body cells, urate accumulates in the hemolymph, where this radical scavenger constitutes an important defense against blood-feeding derived oxidative stress. Incubation of Rhodnius fat bodies with okadaic acid raises the level of urate synthesis, suggesting that urate production can be controlled by protein phosphorylation/dephosphorylation. Urate synthesis is stimulated by dibutyryl cAMP and inhibited by N(2((p-bromocinnamil)amino)ethyl)-5-isoquinolinesulfonamide (H-89), an inhibitor of protein kinase A, as well as activated by the protein kinase C activator phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate. In the presence of hemin, however, inhibition of urate synthesis by H-89 does not occur, suggesting that the hemin stimulatory effect is not mediated by protein kinase A. Calphostin C completely inhibits the hemin-induced urate production, suggesting that the triggering of urate antioxidant response depends on protein kinase C activation. This conclusion is reinforced by the observation that in fat bodies exposed to hemin, both protein kinase C activity and phosphorylation of specific endogenous polypeptides are significantly increased.  (+info)

Inducible gene expression of moricin, a unique antibacterial peptide from the silkworm (Bombyx mori). (4/388)

Molecular cloning of cDNAs encoding moricin, a novel antibacterial peptide from the silkworm (Bombyx mori), was performed using a fat-body cDNA library. A reverse-transcription PCR product encoding a partial nucleotide sequence of moricin was used as a probe. Nucleotide sequencing of four positive clones revealed two types of moricin cDNAs designated moricin 1 and 2. cDNAs for moricin 1 and 2 shared 97.2% identity in their nucleotide sequences. Although one amino acid residue (Phe6) of moricin 1 in the putative signal peptide was replaced with Lys6 in moricin 2, amino acid sequences of their mature portions were identical. Moricin gene expression in B. mori larvae injected with Escherichia coli was observed in fat-bodies, haemocytes and the Malpighian tubule, but not in other tissues like the midgut and silk glands. Accumulation of moricin gene transcripts induced by E. coli reached a maximum level 8 h after injection and persisted up to 48 h. It was confirmed that lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and lipid A, which are cell-wall components of E. coli, triggered moricin gene expression. Comparison of gene expression between moricin 1 and 2 by PCR using specific primers indicated that moricin 2 gene was more strongly expressed than moricin 1 gene. A genomic clone encoding moricin 2 was screened from a B. mori genomic library using a moricin cDNA as a probe. Regulatory motifs for gene expression such as nuclear-factor-kappaB-binding-site-like sequence (kappaB site) and nuclear-factor-interleukin-6-binding-site-like sequence (NF-IL-6 site) were found in the 5'-upstream regulatory region. An electrophoretic-mobility-shift assay revealed that there are bacterial LPS-inducible nuclear proteins that can bind to the kappaB site and other sites in the regulatory region.  (+info)

Lipid bodies and lipid body formation in an oleaginous fungus, Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora. (5/388)

Mortierella ramanniana var. angulispora accumulates triacylglycerol (TG) in lipid bodies. Studies on lipid transport into lipid bodies are essential for elucidating mechanisms of lipid body formation. We used fluorescent dyes and fluorescent lipid analogs to visualize lipid body formation with a confocal laser scanning microscope. Different sizes of lipid bodies were stained by Nile red, a lipid body marker - one with a diameter of about 1 micrometer and the other with a diameter of about 2-3 micrometers. Lipid bodies matured into larger ones with culture. To metabolically monitor lipid bodies, we used 1-palmitoyl, 2-[5-(5,7-dimethyl boron dipyrromethene difluoride)-1-pentanoyl]-phosphatidic acid (C5-DMB-PA), and C5-DMB-phosphatidylcholine (C5-DMB-PC). These were taken up into fungal cells and incorporated into intracellular organelles at 30 degrees C. C5-DMB-PA was quickly incorporated into lipid bodies while C5-DMB-PC was initially incorporated into internal membranes, presumably endoplasmic reticulum membranes, and fluorescence was then gradually transported into lipid bodies. The transport of fluorescent lipids accompanied their metabolism into diacylglycerol (DG) and TG, which, taken together with the fluorescence distribution, suggested that conversion to TG was not necessary for transport into lipid bodies. It is likely that the synthesized DG was mainly located in lipid bodies and the conversion to TG took place in lipid bodies. C5-DMB-PA and C5-DMB-PC were converted to DG and TG in the membrane and lipid body fractions of this fungus, which agreed with in vivo metabolism of these fluorescent lipids and in vitro enzyme activity related to PA and PC metabolism. These results indicate that transport and metabolism of C5-DMB-PA and C5-DMB-PC represent two different routes for lipid body formation in this fungus.  (+info)

A mosaic analysis in Drosophila fat body cells of the control of antimicrobial peptide genes by the Rel proteins Dorsal and DIF. (6/388)

Expression of the gene encoding the antifungal peptide Drosomycin in Drosophila adults is controlled by the Toll signaling pathway. The Rel proteins Dorsal and DIF (Dorsal-related immunity factor) are possible candidates for the transactivating protein in the Toll pathway that directly regulates the drosomycin gene. We have examined the requirement of Dorsal and DIF for drosomycin expression in larval fat body cells, the predominant immune-responsive tissue, using the yeast site-specific flp/FRT recombination system to generate cell clones homozygous for a deficiency uncovering both the dorsal and the dif genes. Here we show that in the absence of both genes, the immune-inducibility of drosomycin is lost but can be rescued by overexpression of either dorsal or dif under the control of a heat-shock promoter. This result suggests a functional redundancy between both Rel proteins in the control of drosomycin gene expression in the larvae of Drosophila. Interestingly, the gene encoding the antibacterial peptide Diptericin remains fully inducible in the absence of the dorsal and dif genes. Finally, we have used fat body cell clones homozygous for various mutations to show that a linear activation cascade Spaetzle--> Toll-->Cactus-->Dorsal/DIF leads to the induction of the drosomycin gene in larval fat body cells.  (+info)

Serpent regulates Drosophila immunity genes in the larval fat body through an essential GATA motif. (7/388)

Insects possess a powerful immune system, which in response to infection leads to a vast production of different antimicrobial peptides. The regulatory regions of many immunity genes contain a GATA motif in proximity to a kappaB motif. Upon infection, Rel proteins enter the nucleus and activate transcription of the immunity genes. High levels of Rel protein-mediated Cecropin A1 expression previously have been shown to require the GATA site along with the kappaB site. We provide evidence demonstrating that the GATA motif is needed for expression of the Cecropin A1 gene in larval fat body, but is dispensable in adult fat body. A nuclear DNA-binding activity interacts with the Cecropin A1 GATA motif with the same properties as the Drosophila GATA factor Serpent. The GATA-binding activity is recognized by Serpent-specific antibodies, demonstrating their identity. We show that Serpent is nuclear in larval fat body cells and haemocytes both before and after infection. After overexpression, Serpent increases Cecropin A1 transcription in a GATA-dependent manner. We propose that Serpent plays a key role in tissue-specific expression of immunity genes, by priming them for inducible activation by Rel proteins in response to infection.  (+info)

Dual requirement for the EcR/USP nuclear receptor and the dGATAb factor in an ecdysone response in Drosophila melanogaster. (8/388)

The EcR/USP nuclear receptor controls Drosophila metamorphosis by activating complex cascades of gene transcription in response to pulses of the steroid hormone ecdysone at the end of larval development. Ecdysone release provides a ubiquitous signal for the activation of the receptor, but a number of its target genes are induced in a tissue- and stage-specific manner. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved in this developmental modulation of the EcR/USP-mediated pathway. Fbp1 is a good model of primary ecdysone response gene expressed in the fat body for addressing this question. We show here that the dGATAb factor binds to three target sites flanking an EcR/USP binding site in a 70-bp enhancer that controls the tissue and stage specificity of Fbp1 transcription. We demonstrate that one of these sites and proper expression of dGATAb are required for specific activation of the enhancer in the fat body. In addition, we provide further evidence that EcR/USP plays an essential role as a hormonal timer. Our study provides a striking example of the integration of molecular pathways at the level of a tissue-specific hormone response unit.  (+info)

Activated AMPK promotes all the processes needed to maintain a youthful profile. However, AMPK activity fades with age. As previously mentioned, AMPK is activated in the presence of increased AMP. Therefore, to test the anti-aging properties of AMPK, researchers used fruit flies that were genetically engineered to synthesize higher levels of AMP. The research found that the modified flies lived up to one-third longer as a result of increased AMPK activity. The life span benefit of these mutations depends upon increased AMP:ATP and ADP:ATP ratios and adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). Transgenic expression of AMPK in adult fat body or adult muscle, key metabolic tissues, extended life span (Stenesen, 2013 ...

In gonadal tissues, the Piwi-interacting (piRNA) pathway preserves genomic integrity by employing 23 29 nucleotide (nt) small RNAs complexed with argonaute proteins to suppress parasitic mobile sequences of DNA called transposable elements (TEs). Although recent evidence suggests that the piRNA pathway may be present in select somatic cells outside the gonads, the role of a non-gonadal somatic piRNA pathway is not well characterized. Here we report a functional somatic piRNA pathway in the adult Drosophila fat body including the presence of the piRNA effector protein Piwi and canonical 23 29 nt long TE-mapping piRNAs. The piwi mutants exhibit depletion of fat body piRNAs, increased TE mobilization, increased levels of DNA damage and reduced lipid stores. These mutants are starvation sensitive, immunologically compromised and short-lived, all phenotypes associated with compromised fat body function. These findings demonstrate the presence of a functional non-gonadal somatic piRNA pathway in the ...

OBJECTIVE-We evaluate a potential role of activating transcription factor 4 (Atf4) in invertebrate and mammalian metabolism. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS-With two parallel approaches-a fat body-specific green fluorescent protein enhancer trap screen in D. melanogaster and expression profiling of developing murine fat tissues-we identified Atf4 as expressed in invertebrate and vertebrate metabolic tissues. We assessed the functional relevance of the evolutionarily conserved expression by analyzing Atf4 mutant flies and Atf4 mutant mice for possible metabolic phenotypes. RESULTS-Flies with insertions at the Atf4 locus have reduced fat content, increased starvation sensitivity, and lower levels of circulating carbohydrate. Atf4 null mice are also lean, and they resist age-related and diet-induced, obesity. Atf4 null mice have increased energy expenditure potentially accounting for the lean phenotype. Atf4 null mice are hypoglycemic, even before substantial changes in fat content, indicating that ...

Smiley, as requested to do, and I hereunto append the result. I have a lurking suspicion that Leonidas W. Smiley is a myth; and that my friend never knew such a personage; and that he only conjectured that if I asked old Wheeler about him, it would remind him of his infamous Jim Smiley, and he would go to work and bore me to death with some exasperating reminiscence of him as long and as tedious as it should be useless to me. If that was the design, it succeeded..

Abstract Due to the small number of two wheelers in Europe and their seasonal use, their contribution to the total emissions has been underestimated for a long time. With the implementation of the new emission regulation 168/2013 [3] for type approval coming into force 2016, the two wheeler sector is facing major changes. The need to fulfil more stringent emission limits and the high demand on the durability of after treatment systems result in an engine control system that is getting more complex and therewith more expensive. Especially the low cost two wheelers with small engine capacities will be affected by increasing costs which cannot be covered by the actual competitive product price. Therefore, new vehicle concepts have to be introduced on the market. A vehicle concept of a plug in hybrid electric city scooter with range extender as well as the range extender itself have already been published in SAE Papers 2011-32-0592 [1] and 2012-32-0083 [2 ...
peace and dignity of two sovereigns by breaking the laws of each, constitutes two separate offenses. This, of course, is the reason that the Double Jeopardy Clause does not bar successive prosecutions by separate sovereigns. But whether an act violates the peace and dignity of a sovereign depends not in the least on whether the perpetrator is a member (in the case of the tribes) or a citizen (in the case of the States and the Nation) of the sovereign.. Heath also instructs, relying on Wheeler, that the separate-sovereign inquiry turns on whether the two entities draw their authority to punish the offender from distinct sources of power. Heath, supra, at 88. But Wheeler makes clear that the tribes and the Federal Government do draw their authority to punish from distinct sources and that they are separate sovereigns. Otherwise, the subsequent federal prosecution in Wheeler would have violated the Double Jeopardy Clause.3 It follows from our case law that Indian tribes possess inherent sovereignty ...

It didnt take long to see that the SDCC was filling the need for the social connection cycling can provide. New friendships were formed - from a distance - and plans were made to get together on the other side of the pandemic.. A lot of people will say, I saw these posts and it made me want to get out. Thats cool, too, Fred said. But the friendships are things that can last and make a big positive difference in peoples lives.. It makes all the time Ive spent on this Facebook group feel like its worth it.. So, what do people get from being a part of a virtual bike club? Well, for one thing, they seem to have a lot of fun.. There have been more than 50 themes created by members for particular days or weeks that bring people together even though they are apart.. A favorite of Freds was one of the earliest, Our Relay Ride Around the World. In April last year, SDCC members posted their ride mileage in the Facebook group and via the clubs Strava group to pedal a collective virtual lap ...

As hard as it is to picture an EPA less willing to fight for public health and the environment than the one we endured under Scott Pruitt, Andrew Wheelers EPA is emerging as a credible candidate. Whereas Pruitts brand of corruption was bumbling and often transparently self-serving, Wheelers is polished and insidious.

In the efforts to figure out how much damage Flynns plea will do to Trump and other senior administration officials, most observers seem to have overlooked one of the few available metrics on the Mueller investigation: the size of his team. While the numbers have fluctuated, Mueller has somewhere in the neighborhood of sixteen prosecutors. Thus far, weve seen official notice of what just half of them have been up to. Robert Mueller has put only a few of his cards on the table ...

The Arizona Diamondbacks took Wheeler in the 5th round of the 2009 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Hal Kurtzman and proceeded to tear the cover off the ball in 2009 for the Yakima Bears (.363/.461/.538, 20 2B, 44 R, 37 BB in 64 G) and South Bend Silver Hawks (.345/.472/.552 in 8 G). Despite only playing half the season, he was named Arizonas minor league position player of the year. He led the Northwest League in OBP (30 points ahead of runner-up Vince Belnome), was second in average (.003 behind Jason Ogata), second in slugging (.044 behind Gerardo Avila), led in OPS (35 points ahead of Ogata), tied for third in doubles and tied for 4th in hits (85, even with Nathan Freiman). He won NWL All-Star honors at first base and was presumably a good MVP candidate (Drew Biery won that award). Baseball America listed him as the NWLs 6th-best prospect, right behind another Wheeler (Tim Wheeler) and right ahead of Robbie Ross. They also listed him as Arizonas 9th-best prospect entering 2010. ...

In the early morning on Feb. 15, 2009, plaintiffs decedent John Reilly, 64, a political aide, was a patron at the Astor Bar and Grill in Jersey City when he became involved in an altercation with another customer, Donald Wheeler. Reilly collapsed several minutes after the altercation and was taken to Jersey City Medical Center in a comatose state. He never regained consciousness and was removed from life support on Feb. 25. An autopsy found that Reilly succumbed to severe heart disease after collapsing. The decedents estranged wife, Genevive Reilly, acting on behalf of his estate, sued Wheeler; The Astor Bar and Grill Inc.; bartender Michael Nolan; and Jalry Corp., the owner of Jack Millers Pub in Jersey City, where Wheeler allegedly consumed alcohol before going to Astor Bar. Jalry was dismissed before trial. Plaintiffs counsel alleged that Reilly was the victim of an assault by Wheeler that led to his death, noting that witnesses saw Wheeler punch Reilly in the mouth. Counsel also claimed ...
Veteran scribe Lonnie Wheeler made it sound as if Piazza will continue to deny he ever used PEDs. That cloud of suspicion might have kept Piazza out of baseballs Hall of Fame in voting announced Wednesday.. Wheeler said he didnt want to upstage his publishers upcoming media tour by giving away too many details about Long Shot, which will be released Feb. 12. But asked if Piazza continues to deny PED use in the book, Wheeler said: Anybody whos looking for Mikes answer to PED questions will find it there . . . I believe hes clean.. ...Wheeler, in a telephone interview, said he spoke to Piazza Thursday and that the 44-year-old was upbeat despite the results.. I was surprised, Wheeler said. He was fine. He was laughing about it. I think he understood that the whole situation was so murky and complicated, and with nobody getting elected, that it was just an unpredictable scenario that he got caught up in. Frankly, he knew it was coming.. I think, like I did, that he felt that he ...

Offshore staff. LONDON - BP has awarded Amec Foster Wheeler a £36-million ($55-million) engineering, procurement, and construction contract to provide additional living quarters as part of a life extension program for the Eastern Trough Area Project (ETAP) fields in the UK central North Sea.. BP aims to extend the ETAP platforms life to 2030 and improve its operating efficiency.. The new living quarters will comprise 16 modules, creating space for an additional 26 beds, which will sit on a grillage support with sliding connectors.. The latter should provide sufficient movement to accommodate flex and stress from the weight of the new structures, increasing efficiency by removing the need to drill through the deck and weld to the deck support beams. 09/24/2015.

Before surveying the land and finding the gas, before boring the wells and breaking the shale, questions must be answered.. The practice is called fracking. The provinces two-year moratorium on it is almost up, and all the questions lie at the feet of Dr. David Wheeler, president of Cape Breton University. Wheeler and the panel he leads---at the behest of the provincial government---are due to give their final report later this month, but Nova Scotians got a taste during a two-week public-meetings roadshow that ended July 29 in Whycocomagh.. Fans of the good ol Canadian government study were not left disappointed: true to the genre, Wheelers is a study calling for more study.. Study of community attitudes; study of health impacts and environmental risks; study to learn where the resources are and how much theyre worth---as Wheeler told a raucous crowd of three hundred at the Halifax consultation, a significant period of learning and dialogue is the panels prescription. But the panel ...

By Sue Ellen Woodcock. Get your motor running. Head out on the highway… thats the tune that will stick in your brain after a visit to Motorcycles of Manchester newest location on Broadway, known as M.O.M. Boston.. Joel Wheeler, owner of three M.O.M. (Motorcycles of Manchester) locations in Manchester, N.H., and Foxboro has made a major investment into the 13,000 square foot Revere location.. We like to think we added to the neighborhood, said General Manager Dennis Adams, noting that Wheeler purchased the old Waughs Garage at 184 Broadway over a year ago and renovated it into a gorgeous shop filled with amazing machines.. Wheeler started the M.O.M. business in 1973 with his first location in Manchester, N.H.. The (Waugh) family has come in to visit, Adams said. The Waugh Garage was a fixture on Broadway for over 50 years.. M.O.M. features Polaris products and Polaris brands such as Indian, Victory, and Slingshot.

Think about that. An international corporation trying to exert pressure on scientists who are drawing conclusions which prove their product could cause harm to public health. Even further, Dr. Lais experiments showed negative health consequences at levels considered safe by the FCC.. The Captured Agency report makes it clear that this type of corruption takes place because of the free flow of executive leadership between the FCC and the industries it presumably oversees. For example, at the time of the reports release, the Chairman of the FCC was Tom Wheeler, a man with deep ties to the Big Wireless industry. In 2013, Wheeler was nominated as FCC chairman by former President Obama after raising more than $700,000 for his presidential campaigns. Wheeler lead the two most powerful industry lobbying groups: The National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA) and the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association, or, the CTIA.. The current chairman of the FCC could also be seen as ...
As Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler come off of disappointing and injury-riddled seasons, their futures with the Mets remain hazy. Though both were highly-touted and, in Harveys case, experienced a significant run of exceptional success, theres a chance that at least one of them will be pitching out of the bullpen by the end of next season.. Rumblings about Wheeler pitching out of the bullpen started almost as soon as his major league career. As a flamethrower with difficulty pitching deep into games, it seemed to be a natural fit, though the promise of a young pitcher reaching his full potential as a starter was enough to keep him in the rotation even after his 2015 Tommy John surgery. But promise doesnt last forever, and the 27-year-old has yet to show he can overcome his deficiencies as a starter.. One of the issues that has always made Wheeler a frustrating pitcher to watch is his difficulty going deep into games. He has yet to average 6 innings per start in a season, and 2017 was his worst ...

Now Wheeler is trying a work-around: compelling the testimony but keeping it secret from investigators. Most criminal justice reform groups in the city have cheered moves to strike the 48-hour rule.

Calico Horse was formed by members of the Clock Work Army, along with Goodbye Blue Monday singer Matt Mournian and Emily Neveu as keyboardist/guitarist. Most locals consider the band to be Clock Work Army under a new name.. Neveu and guitarist Scott Wheeler (Cuckoo Chaos) began writing the songs that were to be Clock Work Armys first album. Wheeler, however, moved Portland, and Neveu began working with producer Pall Jenkins, of the Black Heart Procession. Calling themselves Calico Horse, the group was originally rounded out with bassist Dave Petti Pettijohn, singer/guitarist Matt Mournian, and drummer Tom Peart (no relation to Rushs drummer). By summer 2008, the band had pared down to a trio: Neveu, Pettijohn, and Peart.. ...
The modeling of fluid/structure interaction is of growing importance in both energy and environmental applications. Because of the inherent complexity, these problems must be simulated on parallel machines in order to achieve high resolution. The purpose of this research was to investigate techniques for coupling flow and geomechanics in porous media that are suitable for parallel computation. In particular, our main objective was to develop an iterative technique which can be as accurate as a fully coupled model but which allows for robust and efficient coupling of existing complex models (software). A parallel linear elastic module was developed which was coupled to a three phase three-component black oil model in IPARS (Integrated Parallel Accurate Reservoir Simulator). An iterative de-coupling technique was introduced at each time step. The resulting nonlinear iteration involved solving for displacements and flow sequentially. Rock compressibility was used in the flow model to account for ...

Like cobalt, which is produced as a by-product of nickel and copper production, helium is produced as a by-product of oil and gas production. To get more cobalt you have to mine more nickel and copper, and to get more helium, you need more big, conventional oil and gas projects that happen to have a helium component, but frankly, most of those mega oil and gas projects arent economic anymore because of the advent of shale gas, says Nicholas Snyder, founder of North American Helium. The shortage has been accelerated by the U.S. governments decision in the mid-1990s to sell off its helium stockpile. ...

He actually walked in with both Baby B and Js charts and after the Hellos and other pleasantries he said So you are the family that caused all the excitement a couple of years ago and I said Yes. It was a very quick very nice visit with the doctor. He took a look at Baby B and explained to me that B has Megameatus which is the least severe type of hypospadias. (I then quipped that I am getting better at making little boy parts, the doctor chuckled and told me Yes, Yes you are!) He said that we will most likely want to have it fixed and that it could be fixed surgically. He explained that the Meatus is the name of the opening of the Urethra, I didnt know that. Then he told me something I did know, Mega means Big. The main problem with Megameatus is this, think of a garden hose, when you turn on ...
