Female Cupiennius salei pheromone on banana and Agave plants elicits patterned oscillations by the male. Resulting pulse trains of vibrations through the leaf average 76 hertz. The brief vibratory response by the otherwise immobile female hidden up to at least 1 meter away on another leaf guides the male across the plant to her location. Reciprocal(More)
As software services become the dominant platform for enterprise computing and B2B/B2C applications, testing their correctness and dependability assumes ever more importance. However, unlike the languages used to define and realize them, the languages used to test service-based systems have changed little over recent years. Today, tests for services and(More)
Bosentan has lately been described as a successful therapeutic agent for portopulmonary hypertension consecutive to child A cirrhosis. This is the first report of the effect of this substance with advanced liver cirrhosis (child C) and renal insufficiency. Low doses of bosentan (initially twice 31.25 mg/day and then 62.5 mg/day) increased cardiac output and(More)
Slit sensilla are sensory organs which measure strains in the exoskeleton of arachnids. They occur as isolated slits, in loose groups and in close parallel arrangements known as lyriform organs or compound slit sensilla. The deformations of the slits' faces induced by far-field strains acting on groups of slits are studied using Kachanov's analytical(More)
Although testing is one of the most important activities in software development, especially in projects which emphasize agile development, the basic approach used to define and report tests has changed little since JUnit was introduced over a decade ago. JUnit and its derivatives such as NUnit significantly simplify the task of programming tests but still(More)
Research in enterprise system security has largely focused on the development of theoretical models capable of demonstrating mathematically that they possess desired security properties. However, recent results confirm that many of these models cannot be applied in practice because of the unpredictability of human participants' behavior in business(More)
Automating software testing can significantly reduce the time and effort required to assure the quality of software systems, and over recent years significant strides have been made in test automation techniques. However, one aspect of software testing that has always resisted full automation is the determination of the expected results for given system(More)
nance of joints in concrete structures subjected to a wide variety of use and environmental conditions. In some cases, the option of eliminating joints is considered. Aspects of various joint sealant materials and jointing techniques are discussed. The reader is referred to ACI 504R for a more comprehensive treatment of sealant materials, and to ACI 224R(More)
Die Therapie der Akromioklavikulargelenksprengung, ob konservativ oder operativ, wird unterschiedlich definiert. Als Operationsindikationen werden neben den höhergradigen Verletzungstypen Rockwood IV, V und VI zumeist Sportler und körperlich schwer arbeitende Patienten mit einer Rockwood-II- oder -III-Verletzung genannt. Zum einen soll dadurch möglichen(More)
