Mycobacterium tuberculosis disease in Somali immigrants in Minnesota.
Somalis have a high incidence of active disease, with frequent extrapulmonary involvement in the absence of AIDS, clinical presentation shortly after immigration, and infrequent infection with resistant organisms.
Laser shock‐induced microstructural and mechanical property changes in 7075 aluminum
Stress waves generated by a giant pulsed laser were used to change the in‐depth microstructural and mechanical properties of 7075 aluminum. The 0.2% offset yield strengths of 7075‐T73 and unaged 7075
