Formation, structure, and properties of alkanethiolate monolayers on micrometrically driven hanging mercury drop electrodes were investigated electrochemically. Alkanethiols with the chain length from C8 to C18 were shown to form densely packed (ca. 20.3 Å2/molecule for C12SH), perpendicularly oriented monolayers on mercury in a process involving two(More)
The current environment in higher education calls for more consideration of the linkages between ICT curriculum development, skills capabilities and industry, particularly in light of recent changes in quality and standards agencies. This paper evaluates ICT career progression visualisation methodology and has a threefold purpose: to contribute to a(More)
Purpose – The purpose of this study is to evaluate the development of a blended e-learning pedagogical model for an undergraduate enterprise programme. The proliferation of e-learning programmes offers new opportunities and challenges for universities to meet the learning needs of new student markets. However, the use of e-learning as an enabling mechanism(More)
BACKGROUND This study determines the analytical characteristics of the i-STAT cardiac troponin I assay (cTnI; i-STAT, Princeton, NJ), a 10-min POC assay, designed to be performed at the bedside. METHODS Three different hospitals participated in a patient specimen and analytical validation study (n=186) for the i-STAT cTnI assay carried out in real time. A(More)
The rhythm of syllables in repetitions of a phrase was measured with a finger-tapping task. These rhythm measurements were shown to vary with phrase level stress patterning. However, this relationship was not invariant. Acoustic measurements of the time between syllables showed stress pattern relationships similar to those observed in the rhythm-tapping(More)

We report the results of a deep search for an optical counterpart to the gravitational wave (GW) event GW150914, the first trigger from the Advanced LIGO GW detectors. We used the Dark Energy Camera (DECam) to image a 102 deg area, corresponding to 38% of the initial trigger high-probability sky region and to 11% of the revised high-probability region. We(More)
