AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Hyperglycaemia disproportionately affects African-Americans (AfAs). We tested the transferability of 18 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with glycaemic traits identified in European ancestry (EuA) populations in 5,984 non-diabetic AfAs. METHODS We meta-analysed SNP associations with fasting glucose (FG) or insulin (FI) in(More)
Designing complex machines and systems that operate in very difficult remote locations, with largely unknown conditions, is very challenging. Specifications for such systems must be extremely detailed and extensive, with input from professionals who have designed such systems before, and who gained considerable experience from their operations. Since much(More)
It is very challenging to design complex machines and systems that operate in very difficult remote locations, under largely unknown or uncertain conditions.

The Polarized Electrons for Polarized Positrons experiment at the injector of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility has demonstrated for the first time the efficient transfer of polarization from electrons to positrons produced by the polarized bremsstrahlung radiation induced by a polarized electron beam in a high-Z target. Positron(More)
In a study in the laboratories of the Chicago Board of Health, the results from determination of lead in paint films by X-ray fluorescence were compared with results from determination by atomic absorption. Portable instruments of three suppliers were used for X-ray fluorescence measurements. An improved version of one of these instruments was also tested.(More)
