— Over the past 20 years or so India, China, and the rest of East Asia, experienced fast economic growth and falls in the poverty rate, Latin America stagnated, the former Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, and sub-Saharan Africa regressed. But what are the net trends? The neoliberal argument says that world poverty and income inequality fell over… (More)
The energy gap and magnetic susceptibility of Cdo.8sFeo.15Se were measured in function of temperature. Experiments showed that the magnetic contribution to the variation of the energy gap in Cdl_",Fe",Se is not proportional to the product of magnetic susceptibility and temperature as it has been observed in Mn++-containing semiconductors.
To test the hypotheses that experimental noxious stimulation of the anterior temporalis muscle results in significant decreases in jaw movement amplitude and velocity, and there are significant correlations between scores of mood or pain-related cognitions and amplitude and velocity. The jaw movements of 14 asymptomatic participants were recorded during… (More)
In this paper the mechanics of human mandibular function is described in terms of the associated screws. The two distinct, yet related features of jaw mechanics, involving the motion itself as well as the forces, are both functions of the anatomical constraints, namely the contact areas that exist within the temporomandibular joint, and the forces of the… (More)
