Localization has been an important issue along with the development of context-aware systems applicable to dynamic mobile environment. ZigBee is very cheap and less power consuming wireless techniques comparing to other types such as RFID, infrared and ultrasound. Thus this paper compares conventional techniques for predicting mobile objectpsilas location(More)
In this study we report on a doorstepping intervention which produced a 12.5%, statistically significant, increase in the recycling capture rate. More importantly, we investigate why doorstepping caused the increase, through focus groups, structured interviews and questionnaires. By analyzing the findings with respect to a pragmatic set of eleven clusters(More)
BACKGROUND Radioactive iodine (I-131) is routinely used for the treatment of differentiated thyroid cancer following surgery. Drug-induced liver injury (DILI) is a leading cause of acute liver failure. Here we reported a rare case of diffuse hepatic uptake (DHU) of radioactive iodine (I-131) induced hepatotoxicity in patient with I-131 ablation therapy(More)
Fingered citron (Citrus medica L. var. sarcodactylis Swingle), a precious fruit ornamental plant, is sensitive to low temperature. Cold tolerance, evaluated by semi-lethal temperature, was lower in wild-type ‘Qingpi’ than in its mutant ‘Aihua’ trees obtained by γ-radiation. The full-length cDNAs of two genes encoding fatty acid desaturases involved in(More)
Hepatic sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (HSOS) can be caused by pyrrolizidine alkaloids(PAs)-containing herbals. Since PAs exposure is obscure and clinical presentation of HSOS is unspecific, it is challenge to establish the diagnosis of PAs-induced HSOS. Gynura segetum is one of the most wide-use herbals containing PAs. The aim of our study is to describe(More)
Urinary fistula is the most frequent urologic complication within the first month after kidney transplantation, which often leads to graft loss and mortality. Open surgery is the most popular approach for the treatment of these fistulae; however, it is associated with high failure rates. Here, we present a new technique of pedicled greater omentum graft to(More)
