Lord of the Rings - Return of the King: Swift-XRT observations of dust scattering rings around V404 CygniDownload
On 2015 June 15, the black hole X-ray binary V404 Cygni went into outburst, exhibiting extreme X-ray variability which culminated in a final flare on June 26. Over the following days, the Swift-X-ray Telescope detected a series of bright rings, comprising five main components that expanded and...
Effect of Pairing Status on Use of Space by Territorial Willow Ptarmigan (Lagopus lagopus): Bachelor Males Choose Life on the EdgeDownload
One function of territorial defense may be to facilitate mate guarding by resident males. To assess the importance of mate guarding in territoriality, we examined the spatial pattern of intrusions by male Willow Ptarmigan(Lagopusla gopus) on the territories of other males and we compared use of...
Dilatometry is the most accurate and common method for measuring the kinetics of phase transformations in solid specimens. Despite the development of a more accurate technique, an inferior method, i.e., the lever rule, is widely used in the scientific community to interpret raw dilatometry data....
Reducing depression in older home care clients: Design of a prospective study of a nurse-led interprofessional mental health promotion interventionDownload
Background: Very little research has been conducted in the area of depression among older home care clients using personal support services. These older adults are particularly vulnerable to depression because of decreased cognition, comorbid chronic conditions, functional limitations, lack of...
Biomonitoring and elimination of Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) and Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) through perspiration: Blood, Urine, and Sweat (BUS) Study.Download
Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) are man-made organofluorine chemicals manufactured and marketed for their stain-resistant properties. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are anthropogenic organochlorine compounds previously used in various industrial and chemical applications prior to being banned...
Instructional and learning technologies are playing an increasingly important role in postsecondary education, but there is evidence that a number of differences exist in how females and males approach, per- ceive, and implement these technologies. As faculty start to offer more of their courses...
The probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus plantarum species 299 reduces intestinal permeability in experimental biliary obstructionDownload
Aims: Extrahepatic biliary obstruction is associated with the failure of intestinal barrier function, allowing bacteria and other substances from the intestine to enter the circulation and initiate a systemic inflammatory response, causing impairment of organ function. Probiotic bacteria have...
Transient transfection of chemically synthesized microRNA (miRNA) mimics is being used extensively to study the functions and mechanisms of endogenous miRNAs. However, it remains unclear whether transfected miRNAs behave similarly to endogenous miRNAs. Here we show that transient transfection of...
One crucial measure of a species' invasiveness is the rate at which it spreads into a competitor's environment. A heuristic spread rate formula for a spatially explicit, two-species competition model relies on `linear determinacy' which equates spread rate in the full nonlinear model with spread...
