The effort of clean up the T/V Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska, included the use of fertilizers to accelerate natural microbial degradation of stranded oil. A program to monitor various environmental parameters associated with this technique took place during the summer of 1990. Microbiological assays for numbers of heterotrophic and(More)
Introduction The clinical presentations of polyarteritis nodosa are classically diverse, reflecting variable vascular involvement of many organs and tissues. Mononeuritis multiplex is the most common neurological sequel (Ford and Siekert, 1965), but asymmetrical polyneuropathies, predominantly involving the lower limbs, are well recognized. Central nervous(More)
A survey of bedding in Bristol revealed reducing mite concentrations on children's toys, mattresses, overblankets and pillows. Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus was the commonest mite found. A vacuuming schedule was devised for removing mites so that a double blind trial could be carried out. Investigation suggests that even with expert utilization of(More)

A survey of the habitats occupied by 12 infants of one month of age revealed that approximately 10% of their day was spent in conditions of potential exposure to the major (P1) allergen of the house dust mite, Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus. A respiratory pump which reproduced the minute ventilation of an infant was placed in representative infant habitats.(More)
Recent measures to combat glue sniffing have led to a decrease in the availability of toluene-based glues. As a result, abuse of other more accessible solvents appears to have increased. Of particular concern are the halogenated hydrocarbons which are more likely to cause fatal cardiac arrhythmias than toluene. We wish to report three cases presenting(More)
The Navy Precision Optical Interferometer (NPOI) has been at the forefront of developing Interferometric tools for both Space Situational Awareness and astrophysical imaging. In 2009 we were the first group to attain fringes on a GEO satellite. Since then we have developed more sophisticated modelling tools and at the same time we have started to commission(More)
A survey of doctors and managers found agreement that management training should be given at various stages of a doctor's career. Managers felt strongly that doctors should receive management training in groups with other staff. Doctors believed clinical budgets should be under doctors' control, but managers were opposed to this. The results suggested that(More)
A study of chief executives identified the ability to prioritize, clear vision, resilence, and willingness to take decisions as key factors in success. Some wanted more active involvement from the regional director. Chief executives could be subject to 360-degree assessment. More work is needed to establish the compatibility of chief executives and chairs.
