Combiform is a novel digital gaming console featuring four combinable handheld controllers. It is a new and unique tangible gaming interface that stresses the importance of co-located, co-attentive social interactions among players. In particular, multiple players may freely combine and lock together their handheld game controllers, thereby creating a very(More)
This paper presents a continuation of the development of a drop shape method for film studies, ADSA-CSD (Axisymmetric Drop Shape Analysis-Constrained Sessile Drop). ADSA-CSD has certain advantages over conventional methods. The development presented here allows complete exchange of the subphase of a spread or adsorbed film. This feature allows certain(More)
BACKGROUND Somatization is associated with increased health care use in adults. Whether mothers with somatic symptoms use more health care resources for their children has not been investigated. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to explore the association of maternal somatic symptoms and emergency department (ED) use. DESIGN/METHODS Mothers from a cohort of(More)
Combiform [see Fig. 1 <i>center</i>, video: 4-1] is a novel digital gaming console featuring four combinable handheld controllers. In particular, multiple players may freely combine and lock together their handheld game controllers, thereby creating a very flexible collective and transformable tangible interface. It can be understood as an emerging gaming(More)
With more and more engineered nanoparticles (NPs) being designed renal clearable for clinical translation, fundamental understanding of their transport in the different compartments of kidneys becomes increasingly important. Here, we report noninvasive X-ray imaging of renal clearable gold NPs (AuNPs) in normal and nephropathic kidneys. By quantifying the(More)
In this work four cationic additives were used to improve the surface activity of lung surfactants, particularly in the presence of bovine serum that was used as a model surfactant inhibitor. Two of those additives were chitosan in its soluble hydrochloride form with average molecular weights of 113kDa and 213kDa. The other two additives were cationic(More)
Chitosan, a cationic polysaccharide, has been found to improve the surface activity of lung surfactant extracts in the presence of various inhibitors. It has been proposed that chitosan binds to anionic lipids (e.g. phosphatidyl glycerols) in lung surfactants, producing stable lipid films at the air-water interface. This binding also reverses the net charge(More)
