Shackling can induce wing flapping in chickens. In this survey of 30 chicken processing plants the proportion of birds flapping their wings had usually subsided to less than 0.5 per cent after the birds had been conveyed 2 m away from the shackling area. Thereafter, there were many causes of wing flapping, of which the following were thought to be(More)
This article presents findings of a multisite case study of the experience of nine federal Healthy Start Program sites in using consortia and other community involvement strategies in the fight against infant mortality. Using empowerment theory as a conceptual framework, qualitative data are employed to examine how community involvement in the program(More)
Eucalyptus globulus Labill is a foundation tree species over its disjunct distribution in southeastern Australia. The quality of its pulp makes it the most important hardwood species in the world. The importance of E. globulus prompted the establishment of common gardens from seed collected across its geographic range. This enabled us to study the genetic(More)

For servicemembers who have sustained amputations and wish to return to Active Duty, performing common military tasks is essential. The purpose of this study was to examine the metabolic requirements of servicemembers with transtibial amputations wearing a loaded rucksack and walking at a steady speed. We tested 12 servicemembers with unilateral transtibial(More)
The biomechanical responses to load carriage, a common task for dismounted troops, have been well studied in nondisabled individuals. However, with recent shifts in the rehabilitation and retention process of injured servicemembers, there remains a substantial need for understanding these responses in persons with lower-limb amputations. Temporal-spatial(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the holding powers of 2.7 mm pre-tapped and self-tapped screws placed closely together and tightened in small bones. Pairs of metatarsals were collected from healthy, skeletally mature Greyhounds and part of a 2.7 mm dynamic compression plate was fixed to the dorsal surface of each bone using three 2.7 mm screws.(More)
The management of choledocholithiasis has changed radically since the introduction of laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, perceived technical difficulties have deterred many surgeons from treating common bile duct stones laparoscopically at the time of cholecystectomy. This has lead to reliance on endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography followed(More)
