A team of biologists at the University of York has made an important advance in our understanding of the way cholera attacks the body. The discovery could help scientists target treatments for the globally significant intestinal disease which kills more than 100,000 people every year.. The disease is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, which is able to colonise the intestine usually after consumption of contaminated water or food. Once infection is established, the bacterium secretes a toxin that causes watery diarrhea and ultimately death if not treated rapidly. Colonization of the intestine is difficult for incoming bacteria as they have to be highly competitive to gain a foothold among the trillions of other bacteria already in situ.. Scientists at York, led by Dr Gavin Thomas in the University´s Department of Biology, have investigated one of the important routes that V. cholera uses to gain this foothold. To be able to grow in the intestine the bacterium harvests and then eats a ...

As stated before, what I like about this study was it was a fairly nicely designed and standardized look at in water resuscitation. One weakness of the study is that it only deals with the time between contact with the victim and reaching land. What it doesnt account for is the difficulty of reaching the patient with airway adjuncts (i.e. getting a bag valve mask out to the patient). Another weakness was the use of manikins, which cant properly simulate a humans airway or evolving lung compliance due to aspiration, but this is likely the only study design possible. The idea of using a supraglottic device is enticing since it gives adequate minute ventilations and would theoretically provide a barrier against aspiration, but I do question the feasibility of carrying a device and a bag valve mask to deliver ventilations during a rescue ...
I struggle to ventilate the patient in the resus room, airway pressures are high, the bag doesnt empty properly. In my mind I plan ahead for the next step. Through my mind goes the thought - is this the one, the one that I cannot ventilate? Statistically it is not likely to be, but I am prepared to add two-person technique, airway adjuncts like nasopharyngeal or oropharyngeal, or supraglottic devices that I use frequently in theatre. I feel confident in the use of these methods, and (in the worst case) in cricothyroidotomy. I have practiced that numerous times on our live-tissue course on anaesthetised pigs. However - before I start any of these actions.. I routinely, almost as a reflex from theatre turn the patients head 45 degrees to the left, and then the bag suddenly empties easily - and I can ventilate the patient.. Some people think that time with TIVA in theatre has little value for emergency medicine and advanced prehospital care. I strongly disagree. This is some of the most relevant ...

This new computational model of motor learning is general because it provides mechanisms for adapting to interactions that can be either stable or unstable, in the presence of inherent motor noise, and comprehensive because it predicts trial-by-trial changes in kinematics and temporal profiles of muscle activation. Our algorithm corresponds to concurrent optimization of stability, error, and activation, at the muscle level. It extends algorithms based on the gradient descent of an error function, which have been used to show how the state space representation of a feedforward model can be generalized to different movement directions (Thoroughman and Shadmehr, 2000). Current neurophysiological models able to predict trial to trial modifications of force or torque (Kawato et al., 1987; Katayama and Kawato, 1993; Gribble and Ostry, 2000; Thoroughman and Shadmehr, 2000; Donchin et al., 2003; Emken et al., 2007) and corresponding nonlinear adaptive controllers for robots (Slotine and Li, 1991; Burdet ...

Thanks Russell, I gathered that after examining it further.

Ill bet it was more in theory than actual practice in the end. Personally I see one advantage to this setup: the aluminum clamp deal has _two_ bolts holding it on good and tight, a set screw might slip or even sheer a little.

The rabbit stared at him with curiosity. It then stood up on its back legs and assumed a human stance. Blood was dripping from both sides of its moist lips. Flesh remnants were falling off from its mouth. Your name is Avo, the rabbit stated instead of asking, crimson-bloody teeth protruding from cranny jaws. You and the two guardian dogs, Elethor and Alyta, have always been protecting the garden from the Measles. Avo moved his lips, but couldnt speak. His larynx had paralyzed. With these two constantly patrolling in the Garden Complex, the rabbit continued the one-sided conversation, every time we would make an attempt to create a bridge from our universe into yours, the chronodogs could very precisely mark the time and space of our entry point. It would then be very typical and expected of you -a good guardian you are- to travel back in time, just before we deployed our connecting wormhole. And you would then use your deflection beacon to sabotage our mission. To drive us back and ...
There are several golden rules to getting your calves started on Fiber Fresh feeds, which are all about controlling the calfs early environment to maximise the benefits of your system: warmth, controlling the milk intake (both during the milk and hard feed period), adequate feeding space, "lolly popping", and restricting pasture with no hay or straw.. We recommend having Fiber Fresh on offer in small amounts during the milk period, to engage the calves natural curiosity and to help them get a taste for it. We suggest controlling the amount of milk being offered and the calves will naturally seek out the hard feed alternatives.. Perserverance really is the key and the benefits will be worth it. We recommend "lolly popping" as a good start - its a technique that was developed by farmers and we know it works ...

The Islamic State, al-Qaeda-linked groups, Boko Haram and other extremist movements are protagonists in todays deadliest crises, complicating efforts to end them. They have exploited wars, state collapse and geopolitical upheaval in the Middle East, gained new footholds in Africa and pose an evolving threat elsewhere. Reversing their gains requires avoiding the mistakes that enabled their rise.

Anup does not believe it is realistic to expect rural women-entrepreneurs to perform all business roles single handedly. Unfortunately the scale of each of these enterprises is too small to afford professional / specialized services. He sees the solution in developing an ecosystem that will leverage the collective strength of these micro-enterprises, to create specialized roles and functions for each stakeholder, to enable micro-enterprises to compete effectively in the market. He has created two new layers in the micro-enterprise eco-system: a management team at the district level and distributors at the village level, to create efficient production and supply mechanisms. Besides building a stronger foothold in the local-to-local economy, this also makes a lot of economic sense by reducing cost of operations. ...

Turkey will not let Kurdish militia fighters backed by the United States establish a foothold on its border in northern Syria and will not stop shelling if its security is threatened, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday.
By Henry T. Greely, Edelman Johnson Professor of Law, Stanford Law School; Professor (by courtesy) of Genetics, Stanford Medical School; Director, Program in Neuroscience & Society, Stanford University. The recent meeting at Harvard on neuroimaging, pain, and the law demonstrated powerfully that the offering of neuroimaging as evidence of pain, in court and in administrative hearings, is growing closer. The science for identifying a likely pattern of neuroimaging results strongly associated with the subjective sensation of pain keeps improving. Two companies (and here) recently were founded to provide electro-encephalography (EEG) evidence of the existence of pain. And at least one neuroscientist has been providing expert testimony that a particular neuroimaging signal detected using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is useful evidence of the existence of pain, as discussed recently in Nature.. If nothing more is done, neuroimaging evidence of pain will be offered, accepted, rejected, ...
TVB has been designed following a computational modeling paradigm that permits the model-based inference of network-based mechanisms on different brain scales that underlie the generation of macroscopic neuroimaging signals such as fMRI, EEG and MEG. TVB incorporates a biologically realistic, large-scale connectivity of brain regions in the primate brain, that is, the information of white matter neural fibre tracts as identified by tractography based methods (Hagmann et al., 2008, Honey et al., 2009, Bastiani et al., 2012), obtained from CoCoMac neuroinformatics database (Kötter, 2004, Kötter and Wanke, 2005), or from the recently structural connectivity datasets made available thanks to the Human Connectome Project (Essen and Ugurbil, 2012). Also, a realistic cortex model , as extracted from MRI data, is included. This approach allows a detailed spatial sampling, in particular of the cortical surface, resulting in suitable spatial support for an approximation of the neural activity as in ...
Use of capnography to monitor CPR quality and detect ROSC should be done initially by attaching an EtCO2 monitoring device to the bag-valve-mask device. Once an advanced airway is placed, capnography serves the added purpose of assuring that the airway remains in place.. Resuscitation involves maximal patient movement and offers considerable opportunity for airway displacement. In fact, the degree of patient movement seen in any patient transport, both in and outside the hospital, is significant enough to cause unrecognized airway displacement. Continuous waveform capnography is a standard of care in any patient transport environment.[8]. The utility of capnography in detecting ROSC serves an added purpose of monitoring perfusion and metabolism post-arrest. Once ROSC is achieved, capnography provides the earliest indicator of deterioration in perfusion. A falling EtCO2 signals the resuscitation team that the patient is re-arresting.. TBI and EtCO2. Capnography serves an additional role of ...

Students and teachers from schools across the state played an important role in the field work leading up to the tagging of the five herons. The students and teachers set and checked minnow traps, identified and measured the baitfish caught, and placed the baitfish into a bait bin in order to get a great blue heron to regularly feed from it. They also used game cameras to "watch" the bait bins when they were not there themselves. After a heron was accustomed to feeding from the bait bin, MDIFW and researchers Dr. John Brzorad (Lenoir-Rhyne University) and Dr. Alan Maccarone (Friends University) set out an array of modified foothold traps near the bait bin to capture the heron so they could tag it with a GPS transmitter. The use of modified foothold traps has been perfected by Brzorad, and involves watching the set traps from a blind until a heron steps into one of the traps. Once trapped, it is then quickly retrieved by the researchers for processing. The bird is kept calm with a hood over its ...

The healthy development of key neurocognitive functions, such as face recognition and social cognitive function, is essential for learning to navigate ones environment. Individual differences in these functions predict important developmental outcomes including successful social communication skills, school readiness, and interpersonal relationships. Several recent investigations have focused on understanding how early perceptual experience influences the behavioral and neural specificity of face processing during the first year of life. Research in this area has revealed several perceptual biases arising within the first year of life, including the other-race effect. These findings indicate that infants ability to readily differentiate among face identities is narrowed to the race and gender groups that they have the most experience with.. This indicates that being able to attend to and possibly learn from faces is influenced by familiarity with facial features such as race and gender. ...

The oldest fossil evidence for life on Earth dates to about 3.7 by (billion years ago). The Earth itself formed about 4.5 by with the formation of our solar system. It is thought that the Earth was too hot and chaotic to support life until perhaps 3.8 by (intense bombardment of the earth did not end until 3.9 by, thus life arose quite quickly, essentially as soon as possible!. How did this occur? Obviously guess work - no one was there, and there is no record in the rocks that we could even be certain of. However, we have good guesses as to Earths early environment (atmosphere of H2O, NH3, CO2 and smaller amounts of CH4, NH3, SO2, and H2. If you treat such an atmosphere with any high energy source in the laboratory (as was first done by Miller in 1953, text Figure 1-33) you will get a mixture of organic molecules including many important to organisms today. Interestingly, we also find small precursor molecules all over the Universe - in ancient rocks, meteors, comets etc. Evidence of small ...
