Outbreak of histoplasmosis among cavers attending the National Speleological Society Annual Convention, Texas, 1994. (1/180)In June 1994, 18 people developed serologically confirmed histoplasmosis following cave exploration associated with the annual National Speleological Society Convention in Bracketville, Texas. Six others had an undiagnosed illness suspected to be histoplasmosis. Two persons were hospitalized. We conducted a survey of convention attendees and a nested case-control study of those entering caves. We also conducted a histoplasmin skin test survey of a subgroup of the society, the Texas Cavers Association, who were attending a reunion in October 1994. Among the national convention attendees, exposure to two caves was identified as responsible for 22 (92%) of the 24 cases; 12 (75%) of 16 people exploring one cave (Cave A) and 10 (77%) of 13 exploring a separate cave (Cave B) developed acute histoplasmosis. Additional risk-factors included fewer years of caving experience, longer time spent in the caves, and entering a confined crawl space in Cave A. Of 113 participants in the separate skin test survey, 68 (60%) were found to be skin test positive, indicating previous exposure to Histoplasma capsulatum. A positive skin test was significantly associated with male sex and more years of caving experience. Those less experienced in caving associations should be taught about histoplasmosis, and health care providers should pursue histories of cave exposure for patients with bronchitis or pneumonia that does not respond to initial antibiotic therapy.

Enabling, empowering, inspiring: research and mentorship through the years. (2/180)The interrelationship between research and mentorship in an association such as the Medical Library Association (MLA) is revealed through the contributions of individuals and significant association activities in support of research. Research is vital to the well-being and ultimate survival of health sciences librarianship and is not an ivory tower academic activity. Mentorship plays a critical role in setting a standard and model for those individuals who want to be involved in research and, ultimately, for the preparation of the next generation of health sciences librarians. Research and mentorship are discussed in the context of personal experiences, scholarship, and problem solving in a practice environment. Through research and mentorship, we are enabled to enhance our services and programs, empowered to look beyond our own operations for information puzzles to be solved, and inspired to serve society by improving health.

American College of Cardiology/ European Society of Cardiology international study of angiographic data compression phase II. The effects of varying JPEG data compression levels on the quantitative assessment of the degree of stenosis in digital coronary angiography. (3/180)OBJECTIVES: This report describes whether lossy Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) image compression/decompression has an effect on the quantitative assessment of vessel sizes by state-of-the-art quantitative coronary arteriography (QCA). BACKGROUND: The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) digital exchange standard for angiocardiography prescribes that images must be stored loss free, thereby limiting JPEG compression to a maximum ratio of 2:1. For practical purposes it would be desirable to increase the compression ratio (CR), which would lead to lossy image compression. METHODS: A series of 48 obstructed coronary segments were compressed/decompressed at CR 1:1 (uncompressed), 6:1, 10:1 and 16:1 and analyzed blindly and in random order using the QCA-CMS analytical software. Similar catheter and vessel start- and end-points were used within each image quartet, respectively. All measurements were repeated after several weeks using newly selected start- and end-points. Three different sub-analyses were carried out: the intra-observer, fixed inter-compression and variable inter-compression analyses, with increasing potential error sources, respectively. RESULTS: The intra-observer analysis showed significant systematic and random errors in the calibration factor at JPEG CR 10:1. The fixed inter-compression analysis demonstrated systematic errors in the calibration factor and recalculated vessel parameter results at CR 16:1 and for the random errors at CR 10:1 and 16:1. The variable inter-compression analysis presented systematic and random errors in the calibration factor and recalculated parameter results at CR 10:1 and 16:1. Any negative effect at CR 6:1 was found only for the calibration factor of the variable inter-compression analysis, which did not show up in the final vessel measurements. CONCLUSIONS: Compression ratios of 10:1 and 16:1 affected the QCA results negatively and therefore should not be used in clinical research studies. (+info)
American College of Cardiology/ European Society of Cardiology international study of angiographic data compression phase III. Measurement Of image quality differences at varying levels of data compression. (4/180)OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate up to which level of Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) data compression the perceived image quality and the detection of diagnostic features remain equivalent to the quality and detectability found in uncompressed coronary angiograms. BACKGROUND: Digital coronary angiograms represent an enormous amount of data and therefore require costly computerized communication and archiving systems. Earlier studies on the viability of medical image compression were not fully conclusive. METHODS: Twenty-one raters evaluated sets of 91 cine runs. Uncompressed and compressed versions of the images were presented side by side on one monitor, and image quality differences were assessed on a scale featuring six scores. In addition, the raters had to detect pre-defined clinical features. Compression ratios (CR) were 6:1, 10:1 and 16:1. Statistical evaluation was based on descriptive statistics and on the equivalence t -test. Results At the lowest CR (CR 6:1), there was already a small (15%) increase in assigning the aesthetic quality score indicating "quality difference is barely discernible-the images are equivalent.' At CR 10:1 and CR 16:1, close to 10% and 55%, respectively, of the compressed images were rated to be "clearly degraded, but still adequate for clinical use' or worse. Concerning diagnostic features, at CR 10:1 and CR 16:1 the error rate was 9.6% and 13.1%, respectively, compared with 9% for the baseline error rate in uncompressed images. CONCLUSIONS: Compression at CR 6:1 provides equivalence with the original cine runs. If CR 16:1 were used, one would have to tolerate a significant increase in the diagnostic error rate over the baseline error rate. At CR 10:1, intermediate results were obtained. (+info)
Past presidents I have known. (5/180)This paper is an account of the accomplishments of some of the early past presidents of the Medical Library Association known personally to the author in his career as a medical librarian. It demonstrates the qualities that made these librarians leaders of our profession and also indicates their personal attributes that contributed to the advancement of medical librarianship. It is hoped that the historical presentation of some of the giants of our profession will inspire present and future presidents and other medical librarians with an understanding of some of the qualities necessary to the continuing success of our profession.

Why some Jehovah's Witnesses accept blood and conscientiously reject official Watchtower Society blood policy. (6/180)In their responses to Dr Osamu Muramoto (hereafter Muramoto) Watchtower Society (hereafter WTS) spokesmen David Malyon and Donald Ridley (hereafter Malyon and Ridley), deny many of the criticisms levelled against the WTS by Muramoto. In this paper I argue as a Jehovah's Witness (hereafter JW) and on behalf of the members of AJWRB that there is no biblical basis for the WTS's partial ban on blood and that this dissenting theological view should be made clear to all JW patients who reject blood on religious grounds. Such patients should be guaranteed confidentiality should they accept whole blood or components that are banned by the WTS. I argue against Malyon's and Ridley's claim that WTS policy allows freedom of conscience to individual JWs and that it is non-coercive and non-punitive in dealing with conscientious dissent and I challenge the notion that there is monolithic support of the WTS blood policy among those who identify themselves as JWs and carry the WTS "advance directive". (+info)
Medical confidentiality and the protection of Jehovah's Witnesses' autonomous refusal of blood. (7/180)Mr Ridley of the Watch Tower Society (WTS), the controlling religious organisation of Jehovah's Witnesses (JWs), mischaracterises the issue of freedom and confidentiality in JWs' refusal of blood by confusing inconsistent organisational policies with actual Biblical proscriptions. Besides exaggeration and distortion of my writings, Ridley failed to present substantive evidence to support his assertion that no pressure exists to conform to organisational policy nor systematic monitoring which compromises medical confidentiality. In this refutation, I present proof from the WTS's literature, supported by personal testimonies of JWs, that the WTS enforces its policy of blood refusal by coercive pressure to conform and through systematic violation of medical confidentiality. Ridley's lack of candour in dealing with the plea of dissident JWs for freedom to make personal and conscientious decisions regarding blood indicates that a serious breach of ethics in the medical care of JWs continues. The medical community should be seriously concerned. (+info)
Use of a reference material proposed by the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine to evaluate analytical methods for the determination of plasma lipoprotein(a). (8/180)BACKGROUND: As part of the NIH/National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Contract for the Standardization of Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] Measurements, a study was performed in collaboration with the IFCC Working Group for the Standardization of Lp(a) Assays. The aims of the study, performed with the participation of 16 manufacturers and 6 research laboratories, were to evaluate the IFCC proposed reference material (PRM) for its ability to transfer an accuracy-based value to the immunoassay calibrators and to assess concordance in results among different methods. METHODS: Two different purified Lp(a) preparations with protein mass concentrations determined by amino acid analysis were used to calibrate the reference method. A Lp(a) value of 107 nmol/L was assigned to PRM. After uniformity of calibration was demonstrated in the 22 evaluated systems, Lp(a) was measured on 30 fresh-frozen sera covering a wide range of Lp(a) values and apolipoprotein(a) [apo(a)] sizes. RESULTS: The among-laboratory CVs for these samples (6-31%) were, in general, higher than those obtained for PRM (2.8%) and the quality-control samples (14%, 12%, and 9%, respectively), reflecting the broad range of apo(a) sizes in the 30 samples and the sensitivity of most methods to apo(a) size heterogeneity. Thus, although all of the assays were uniformly calibrated through the use of PRM, no uniformity in results was achieved for the isoform-sensitive methods. CONCLUSIONS: Linear regression analyses indicated that to various degrees, apo(a) size heterogeneity affects the outcome of the immunochemical methods used to measure Lp(a). We have also shown that the inaccuracy of Lp(a) values determined by methods sensitive to apo(a) size significantly affects the assessment of individual risk status for coronary artery disease.

In the city of Chhatrapur, Ganjam district, Odisha state, India, the Councillor for Ward-6 by the name of Laxmidutta Pradhan, who was also a local leader of the Biju Janata Dal (BJD) party, was hacked to death by a group of assailants armed with swords, machetes and stick.. The incident happened in front of the Councillors house and was caught on the houses CCTV cameras. Mr. Pradhans brother attempted to interfere with the assault, but only made it worse.

Council's focus communication amid freshwater plans 'traffic jam' | Otago Daily Times Online News
Councillors were updated yesterday on the councils progress in implementing the new National Environment Standards for Freshwater and regional water plan changes that came into effect two months ago.. While progress had been made in most areas, councillors had questions about the requirement for farm plans, which one councillor said were creating a "traffic jam".. Between the announcement of the new national rules at the beginning of August and the end of September, the council had received 102 public inquires, a report to councillors written by consents manager Joanna Gilroy said.. That led to staff thanking councillors for approving an annual budget increase of $1million to hire 16 new staff to ensure Otago complied with the new national freshwater standards in August.. A new staff member would start next month to help respond to public inquiries, which had "spiked".. Other progress included creating an information hub on its website about the new national and regional water rules, training ...
2016 Local Government Elections Manifesto | AZAPO
NOT ABUSE THEIR POSITION FOR PERSONAL GAIN.. AZAPO will mandate its councillors to interact with the communities they serve through ward committees and other community organs, such as street committees, community policing fora, and where these do not exist or are inadequate, AZAPO councillors will assist the community in creating them. No AZAPO councillor will live outside the community/ ward they represent. Within the limits of the current governance system, AZAPO will recall any councillor or councillors the community wants removed due to poor performance. 3.2 ROOT OUT CORRUPTION. Corruption means the diversion of much needed resources for service delivery and development to the unjust enrichment of individuals or organisations. Therefore corruption is far from being a victimless crime, its victims are the thousands of people who need the state to deliver much needed services.. To root out corruption, AZAPO will ensure that municipalities have strong internal and external supervision, and ...
Markham group expresses 'shock' over arena issue | Toronto Star
A sports source familiar with NHL processes said that description in the minutes was "misleading, to say the least.". The minutes, obtained by the Star, added that an unidentified councillor said NHL commissioner Gary Bettman recommended Roustan, chairman of GTA Sports and Entertainment. Furthermore, the league supported a second Toronto franchise, the councillor said. But a senior NHL official said that was incorrect.. Councillors also acknowledged Roustans credibility and noted his involvement would provide Markham with a connection to attract an NHL team to the city, the minutes said.. Rea, who is objecting to the use of public funds for the arena, said Scarpitti and Conrad should end their involvement in the project because the inaccurate information is designed to soften any council opposition to Roustan. Council has not indicated publicly if it is supportive of Roustan since the secret meeting.. "Keeping these meetings in secret suggests they (councillors) dont want us to know the real ...
Fluoride Action Network | Southampton: Councillor to take debate to the top
THE fight against controversial plans to add fluoride to Southamptons tap water is being taken to the top by one community leader.. Health chiefs have already voted in favour of fluoridation and are working with Southern Water to implement the scheme, but the campaign against the "mass medication plans" is still going strong.. Despite a public consultation in which 72 per cent of people living in the affected area voted against fluoridation, bosses from South Central Strategic Health Authority (SHA) approved the plans last month. It means 195,000 residents in Southampton, Totton and parts of Eastleigh will receive fluoridated water to improve dental health among children. Fluoridation is set to be implemented by the end of 2010.. David Harrison, pictured, Hampshire County Councillor for Totton South - where about 8,000 homes will be included in the fluoridation scheme, has lodged a formal complaint with the SHA.. ...

A letter to our local LibDem Councillor , on the eve of the UK Local Elections
This is completely unjust and yet no government addresses these very harsh realities and impoverishment of carers. It is just swept aside. we feel that carers and disabled are disregarded as voters and are never considered important sadly. Yet the LibDems stated in their manifesto that they would protect the most poor and disabled and in need. the reality is sadly far from this. I wait with trepidation for the changes in benefits to come in meanwhile my husband worries how we will manage financially and how he can possibly cope if he has to try and do paid work as I cannot manage without his full time help ...

More-so the better then thou comments of some that the Currier Playground is Infested with children that are not from Cumberland! EXCUSE ME~!. Is that because some of them have crossed THE BLACKSTONE BORDER BRIDGE and made friends with some of the youth of the Valley that come from the many Blue Collar families that comprise the area, are of an ethnic make-up not of some of the better-then-thous choosing....or maybe that they speak a funny tongue?. Bottom line here I dont buy anything that the elitists, and especially McKee are espousing....especially as I stated in my comments further above..

Fluoride Action Network | Gloucester. Letter: Councilor must listen to constituents
To the editor:. Incumbent councilors at-large Melissa Cox and Jamie OHara do their homework. They also respectfully listen to their constituents, whether they agree with them or not. They deserve to be reelected.. Candidates for councilors at large Chris DiMercurio Sicuranza, Peter Cannavo, John McCarthy and Joe Ciolino also seem to share those traits. Any two of them would be good additions to the Gloucester City Council.. However, I cannot make the same recommendation for incumbent Jen Holmgren. One thing that councilor at large Holmgren does not do is her homework, not consistently. Neither is she responsive or respectful to constituents. She not only never returned my calls or responded to my emails, when I saw her in person she angrily told me that she would not talk to me, listen to me or read anything I send her because she trusts the opinion of the chairman of the Gloucester Board of Health on the topic of fluoridation. But, its not just me who she ignores and abuses.. I was forwarded ...
Opposition councillor arrested after posting Facebook live dismissing PM's defection offerPhnom Penh Post
An opposition Pailin commune councillor was arrested on Tuesday shortly after he posted a video on social media rejecting Prime Minister Hun Sens offer to CNRP officials to jump ship and join the CPP in anticipation of the partys potential dissolution. On Sunday, the premier said CNRP defectors would be welcomed into the ruling partys fold and be able to keep their jobs, an offer very few councillors have accepted so far. A day later, Stung Kach Commune Councillor Chhun Sithy live-streamed his rejection of Hun Sens offer on his Facebook account. He was arrested less than 24 hours later and was still being questioned at the Pailin Provincial Court last night.
DICOM - Wikipedia
DICOM is a standard developed by American College of Radiology (ACR) and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA). In the beginning of the 1980s, it was very difficult for anyone other than manufacturers of computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging devices to decode the images that the machines generated. Radiologists and medical physicists wanted to use the images for dose-planning for radiation therapy. ACR and NEMA joined forces and formed a standard committee in 1983. Their first standard, ACR/NEMA 300, was released in 1985. Very soon after its release, it became clear that improvements were needed. The text was vague and had internal contradictions. In 1988 the second version was released. This version gained more acceptance among vendors. The image transmission was specified as over a dedicated 2 pair cable (EIA-485). The first demonstration of ACR/NEMA V2.0 interconnectivity technology was held at Georgetown University, May 21-23, 1990. Six companies participated in ...

Kristen Wilson, PT, DPT - Action Potential
As a sophomore at Garnet Valley High School, Kristen knew she wanted to be a physical therapist. Perhaps it was her fascination with how the body moves, or her desire to motivate someone to achieve beyond their wildest imagination, physical therapy was the perfect profession to combine science with caring for people. Kristen began her therapy career at Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital after graduating from Ithaca College with her Masters Degree, and subsequently completing her Doctorate in Physical Therapy at Temple University. She quickly developed a passion for treating clients with neurological conditions, prompting her to pursue an advanced certification in Neuro-Developmental Technique, a hands-on technique for the treatment of individuals with hemiplegia. Understanding that the older adult has great potential in improving their health and fitness, Kristen became an American Physical Therapy Association Geriatric Certified Specialist in 2009.

The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard was developed by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) for medical image archiving and retrieval. An extension to this implemented a standard named DICOM-RT for use in Radiation Oncology. There are currently seven radiotherapy-specific DICOM objects which include: RT Structure Set, RT Plan, RT Dose, RT Image, RT Beams Treatment Record, RT Brachy Treatment Record, and RT Treatment Summary Record. The type of data associated with DICOM-RT includes (1) Radiation treatment planning datasets (CT, MRI, PET) with radiation treatment plans showing beam arrangements, isodose distributions, and dose volume histograms of targets/normal tissues and (2) Image-guided radiation modalities such as Siemens MVision mega-voltage cone beam CT (MV-CBCT). With the advent of such advancing technologies, there has been an exponential increase in image data collected for each patient, and ...

Nuclear War Now! Productions :: View topic - ARES KINGDOM 'Return to Dust' LP/Pic LP+7'
Review from Vorfeed.net Artist: Ares Kingdom Album Title: Return to Dust Label: Nuclear War Now This is the first full-length album from Ares Kingdom, an American band featuring members of Order From Chaos and Vulpecula. They play thrashy death/black metal. The sound on this album is ideal. There s a touch of distortion on the guitars, which adds a perfect amount of roughness to the sound. The drums have lots of impact, the bass is just loud enough, and the vocals are way up front, a choice that makes them surprisingly easy to understand. In terms of style, this band sounds a bit like Order From Chaos, but the songwriting here is even more epic and involved. The mix of aggressive and introspective moments reminds me of early Destroyer 666, as do the inspiring lyrics, but Ares Kingdom conjure up a different sort of atmosphere. Between the chaotic riffs and meticulous song structure, it s as if the band is constantly treading on the line between order and disorder. Firestorm Redemption is a ...

Portland city councilors to take up regulation of pesticides - The Forecaster
PORTLAND - Getting the bugs out will be a big topic for the City Council Sustainability & Transportation Committee this summer.. The committee will begin to consider how to regulate pesticide use in a meeting on June 21 at 5:30 p.m. in City Hall.. The panel, led by Councilor Spencer Thibodeau, includes Councilors Belinda Ray and Jill Duson. Thibodeau said he expects members to discuss regulations in at least two sessions and eventually include fertilizer use.. The meeting will include a public hearing, which comes after the Pesticide and Fertilizer Task Force established more than a year ago concluded its work in February..

Councillor Bradford asked how long it takes to smoke a cigarette. He asked if it only takes 10 minutes to smoke one cigarette, how can 20 minutes of exposure to secondhand smoke be like smoking a pack of cigarettes?
