While global technical progress is relatively linear, there is wide variation in its environmental and social impacts at the local level, with cycles of expansion and retraction or boom and bust, of long or short duration. Analysis of previous open-ended stages of extraction and agro commodities in the Amazon indicates a general gravitational trend for(More)
To determine the significance of ST-segment depression during adenosine perfusion imaging for predicting future cardiac events, 188 patients with interpretable electrocardiograms were assessed 1 to 3 years (mean 21.5 +/- 6.6 months) after adenosine testing. At least 1 mm of ST-segment depression was observed in 32 (17%) patients, with > or = 2 mm of(More)
The relationships between football playing ability (FPA) and selected anthropometric and performance measures were determined among NCAA Division I-A football players (N = 40). Football playing ability (determined by the average of coaches' rankings) was significantly correlated with vertical jump (VJ) in all groups (offense, defense, and position groups of(More)
Bovine erythrocyte superoxide dismutase and two manganese-containing superoxide dismutases have been reduced by the indirect coulometric titration method with methylviologen as the mediator-titrant. On the basis of the titration data the manganese-containing superoxide dismutases contain 1 g-atom of metal per mol of enzyme (dimer). E0' = +0.31 V for the(More)
When catalytic quantities of superoxide ion (O.-2; or of electrons from electrolysis or of OH-) are introduced into a dry acetonitrile solution that contains excess substrate (RH), ambient air (O2), 1,2-diphenylhydrazine (PhNHNHPh), and iron(II), the substrate is rapidly and efficiently monoxygenated (e.g., triphenylphosphine----triphenylphosphine oxide,(More)
Polyhalogenated aromatic hydrocarbons (e.g., PCBs and hexachlorobenzene) are rapidly degraded by superoxide ion in dimethylformamide to carbonate and halide ions. The efficient destruction of such materials is accomplished via the in situ electrolytic reduction of dissolved oxygen to generate superoxide ion, which reacts with polyhalo aromatics by(More)
