Atmospheric oxidation reactions are known to affect the chemical composition of organic aerosol (OA) particles over timescales of several days, but the details of such oxidative aging reactions are poorly understood. In this study we examine the rates and products of a key class of aging reaction, the heterogeneous oxidation of particle-phase organic(More)
BACKGROUND The cheapest, most rapid method for the diagnosis of mycotic skin and nail infections is direct examination of samples using a KOH preparation. The standard KOH wet mount lacks a color contrast. Various contrast dyes are available. Parker ink is one which has been extensively used, however in recent times the stain no longer provides a suitable(More)
Epithelioid hemangioendothelioma (EH) is a rare tumor of vascular origin. The authors describe two cases of spinal EH, one involving the T-10 vertebra and the second involving the upper cervical spine. In the first case the patient underwent resection of the tumor; this case represents the longest reported follow-up period for spinal EH. In the second case,(More)
Injections of the melanocortin 3/4 receptor (MCR) agonist melanotan II (MTII) to a variety of brain structures produces anorexia, suggesting distributed brain MCR control of food intake. We performed a detailed analysis of feeding behavior (licking microstructure analysis) after a range of MTII doses (0.005 nM to 1 nM) was targeted to the forebrain (third(More)
This paper presents a method for domain adaptation (incorporating out-of-domain data) through phrase generalization (learning/using phrase templates) in order to improve the Italian-English translation quality on the BTEC travel task. The process of phrase generalization is described, and its inclusion in the system resulted in noticeable, but only minor(More)
The need for translation among the world’s thousands of natural languages makes information access and communication costly. One possible solution is lemmatic communication: A human sender encodes a message into sequences of lemmata (dictionary words), a massively multilingual lexical translation engine translates them into lemma sequences in a target(More)
The diiron complexes [Fe(2)(CO)(6)(1,8-S(2)-2,4,5,7-Cl(4)C(10)H(2))] (3), [Fe(2)(CO)(6)(1,8-S(2)C(10)H(6))] (4), and [Fe(2)(CO)(6)(1,8-S(2)-2,7-tBu(2)C(10)H(4))] (5) were synthesized in moderate yield from naphthalene-1,8-dithiols and [Fe(3)(CO)(12)]. They were characterized by IR, (1)H and (13)C NMR spectroscopy and 3 and 4 were characterized by X-ray(More)
Operator scaling random fields are useful for modeling physical phenomena with different scaling properties in each coordinate. This paper develops a general parameter estimation method for such fields which allows an arbitrary set of scaling axes. The method is based on a new approach to nonlinear regression with errors whose mean is not zero. © 2013(More)
