The response of muscle to volitional or electrically induced stimuli is affected by its contractile history. Fatigue is the most obvious effect of contractile history reflected by the inability of a muscle to generate an expected level of force. However, fatigue can coexist with post-activation potentiation (PAP), which serves to improve muscular(More)
Sorghum bicolor is a close relative of maize and is a staple crop in Africa and much of the developing world because of its superior tolerance of arid growth conditions. We have generated sequence from the hypomethylated portion of the sorghum genome by applying methylation filtration (MF) technology. The evidence suggests that 96% of the genes have been(More)
The effects of whole body vibration (WBV) on EM G timing, frequency and amplitude have previously been studied, however to best of the authors knowledge there have been no studies on the effect of WBV on the conduction velocity of myoelectrical signals. Muscle fibre conduction velocity, EM G frequency and amplitude of the vastus lateralis were therefore(More)
Whole body vibration (WBV) during exercise offers potential to augment the effects of basic exercises. However, to date there is limited information on the basic physiological and biomechanical effects of WBV on skeletal muscles. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of WBV (40Hz, 1.9mm synchronous vertical displacement) on the myoelectrical(More)

We present TaskZones, an alternative to Rooms and virtual desktops for grouping windows for multiple-monitor users. Key benefits of TaskZones are that it (1) allows a user to designate the windows of an arbitrary selection of monitors as a group, (2) allows a user to have multiple groups visible simultaneously, and (3) maintains positive properties of(More)
