This study aimed to investigate the role of exercise order on total number of repetitions and to evaluate the possible importance on muscle damage and on rating perceived exertion (RPE). Ten trained participants completed two sequences: sequence A (SEQA) was leg press (LP), leg extension (LE), leg curl (LC), bench press (BP), shoulder press (SP), and(More)
We focus on the dynamic relation between wage increases, promotions and job changes. In the empirical analyses, we use the Portuguese-matched employer–employee data Quadros de Pessoal. We find substantial wage returns to both promotions and job-to-job transitions. Our results are not consistent with models of full information and symmetric learning in a(More)
Underwater communications mainly rely on acoustic propagation which is strongly affected by frequency-dependent attenuation, shallow water multipath propagation and significant Doppler spread/shift induced by source-receiver-surface motion. Time-reversal based techniques offer a low complexity solution to decrease interferences caused by multipath, but a(More)
BACKGROUND Eosinophilic oesophagitis (EoE) is characterized by the presence of eosinophils in oesophageal mucosa. Other inflammatory cells, mainly lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and mast cells may also play an important role in this disease. The aim of this study is to compare the inflammatory pattern of the mucosa between EoE and gastro-oesophageal reflux(More)
From the first stages of star and galaxy formation, non-gravitational processes such as ram pressure stripping, SNs, galactic winds, AGNs, galaxy-galaxy mergers, etc... lead to the enrichment of the IGM in stars, metals as well as dust, via the ejection of galactic material into the IGM. We know now that these processes shape, side by side with gravitation,(More)
This thesis deals with the automatic generation of meshes of quadrilateral elements over surfaces of a general solid using an advancing front approach. The algorithm is based on paving, a method proposed by Blacker et al. to mesh planar surfaces. We adopt a CAD integration approach and use AutoCAD-12 to generate the solid and the AutoCAD Development System(More)
We summarize the results of the chiral quark-soliton model (χQSM) concerning basically all form factors necessary to interpret the present data of the parity violating electron scattering experiments SAMPLE, HAPPEX, A4 and G0. The results particularly focus on the recently measured asymmetries and the detailed data for various combinations of G A and˜G n A(More)
