The small Indian mongoose (Herpestes auropunctatus) is one of the world’s 100 worst invasive species. It is a generalist feeder blamed for many declines and extirpations of vertebrates on islands. Native to Asia, it has been introduced to at least 64 islands (Pacific and Indian Oceans, Caribbean and Adriatic Seas) and the mainland (Europe, South America,(More)
Seven parent N-methyl carbamate insecticides, in addition to two transformation products of aldicarb (aldicarb sulfoxide and aldicarb sulfone), and a single transformation product of carbofuran (3-hydroxycarbofuran) were measured in infant and junior foods available on the Canadian retail market between 2001 and 2003. Carbaryl and methomyl were the only(More)
Multi-Level Security (MLS) has been implemented on many different operating systems. We will discuss the reasons and motivations behind the improvements to the MLS model in SELinux that were accepted into the 2.6.12 Linux Kernel. An introduction to SELinux MLS representation, policy creation, and integration is provided to help further the adoption and use(More)
Natural disturbance coupled with a recent rise in anthropogenic perturbation have catalyzed the widespread expansion of algal populations in the coral reef ecosystems of Moorea, French Polynesia. This study sought to determine whether densities of the invasive Fucalean alage, Turbinaria ornata, varied along exposure gradients. No significant difference was(More)
Infants and young children consume fruit juices and drinks at rates exceeding those of older children and adults. Carbamate pesticides are known to be used on a broad spectrum of crops, including orchard and vine crops such as apples and grapes. Concern over potential exposure to these acutely toxic pesticides by infants and young children has increased in(More)
The InPouch TV is a method which combines a wet preparation and a culture method to detect Trichomonas vaginalis. The top portion of the InPouch TV essentially functions as a slide to be examined under the microscope. If the initial examination is negative, the specimen is pushed down into the bottom pouch, which serves as a broth for cultivation. The issue(More)
Projects to eradicate invasive species from islands are a high priority for conservation. Here we describe the process used to successfully eradicate an introduced carnivore on an island where a native carnivore of similar size was also present. We primarily used padded leg-hold live trapping to capture feral cats (Felis silvestris catus). Trapped feral(More)
BACKGROUND Shoulder pain is becoming increasingly problematic in young players as volleyball gains popularity. Associations between repetitive motion and pain and overuse injury have been observed in other overhand sports (most notably baseball). Studies of adult athletes suggest that there is a shoulder pain and overuse problem present in volleyball(More)
