We report on the discovery of Very High Energy (VHE) γ-ray emission from the BL Lacertae object 1ES 1011+496. The observation was triggered by an optical outburst in March 2007 and the source was observed with the MAGIC telescope from March to May 2007. Observing for 18.7 hr, we find an excess of 6.2 σ with an integrated flux above 200 GeV of (1.58±0.32) ·… (More)
We present the results of six BeppoSAX observations of 1ES 2344+514, five of which were taken within a week. 1ES 2344+514, one of the few known TeV BL Lac objects, was detected by the BeppoSAX Narrow Field Instruments between 0.1 to ≈ 50 keV. During the first five closely spaced observations 1ES 2344+514 showed large amplitude luminosity variability,… (More)
We present spatially-resolved, near-diffraction-limited 10 µm spectra of the nucleus of the Seyfert 2 galaxy NGC 1068, obtained with Michelle, the mid-IR imager and spectrometer on the 8.1 m Gemini North telescope. The spectra cover the nucleus and the central 6.0 ′′ × 0.4 ′′ of the ionization cones at a spatial resolution of approximately 0.4 ′′ (≈30… (More)
Selenium deficiency is common in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection and may contribute to the development of cardiomyopathy. A 5-year-old boy with congenital human immunodeficiency virus infection developed cardiomyopathy. Evaluation for reversible causes of cardiomyopathy was notable for the diagnosis of selenium deficiency. Cardiac… (More)
1. Methods for the isolation of the specific antigens of Types V, W, Z, and Newcastle Shigella paradysenteriae are given. 2. The physical, chemical, toxic, and immunological properties of these substances are described.
The chemical and enzymatic dissociation of the specific antigen of Type Z Shigella paradysenteriae has been studied. The chemical, toxic, and serological properties of the products of degradation have been investigated. The nature of the toxic component has been discussed.
We present measurements of absorption by the 21 cm hyperfine transition of neutral hydrogen toward radio sources at substantial look-back times. These data are used in combination with observations of rotational transitions of common interstellar molecules to set limits on the evolution of the fine structure constant: alpha/ alpha<3.5x10(-15) yr(-1), to a… (More)
1. Studies of the precipitation reaction of C polysaccharide with C protein, and of C polysaccharide with C antibody are reported. The similarity between these two systems in this respect is demonstrated. 2. The differences between C protein and C antibody are emphasized. The differences between this protein and antibodies in general have been reported… (More)
