Although an absolute difference of 10% (65,4 vs. 54,9%) in 5- and 9-year survival in breast cancer patients was recorded between the self-examination and control groups a large-scale randomized population-controlled study of 122,471 females has failed to provide significant differences (Log-rank - 0,774, p > 0.05). No significant decrease in mortality was(More)
Preparation of partially protected brassinosteroids is achieved through the reaction of the source material (24-epicastasterone and 24-epibrassinolide) with diol-specific reagents (2,2-dimethoxypropane and methylboronic acid). The obtained products were shown to be useful synthetic intermediates for further preparation of minor representatives of this class(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study aimed at investigating whether theta activity within medio-frontal cortex (MFC) serves as a marker for increased cognitive control demands such as performance monitoring. METHODS We confronted participants with at least two incompatible sources of information in a Simon task, a flanker task, and a NoGo task to assess whether(More)
Several years ago we noticed that something had happen with our students. Times have changed, so have the students, the tools, and the requisite skills and knowledge. How can Higher Education provide these evolving students with a relevant education? To answer this question, we have to understand a whole generation, grown up with digital technologies. In(More)
] Mining activities in Australia tend to be cyclical, with boom and bust times impacting upon associated communities. However, little information exists to classify key impacts or to identify how they vary across mining service towns. In this paper, qualitative social impact assessment techniques have been used to independently assess post-development(More)
Purpose – The coal mining industry makes a key contribution to the Queensland economy, and is the underlying driver of employment and economic conditions in many local and regional communities. This article aims to focus on how the social and economic impacts of mining should be assessed and negotiated with local and regional communities.(More)
Caldicellulosiruptor saccharolyticus has attracted considerable attention by virtue of its ability to degrade various polysaccharide, oligosaccharide and monosaccharide substrates at temperatures above 70 degrees C, while its ability to convert various sugars to hydrogen has led to C. saccharolyticus being selected for the fermentative production of(More)
Event-related potentials provide strong evidence for a face-specific process that peaks at about 170 ms following stimulus onset--the N170 effect. The N170 has been shown to be sensitive to adaptation, reflected in an amplitude reduction by repeated face presentation, which is usually considered to be driven by bottom-up processes. Here we investigated(More)
The paper discusses the evolution of the "Design Technology" course, provoked by the necessity to prepare specialists, with competitive knowledge and skills to design digital systems, using up-to-date technologies. The need for change is outlined and the process of course design is discussed. A description of the course organization is provided, the(More)
