We present a possible observing scenario for the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo gravitational-wave detectors over the next decade, with the intention of providing information to the astronomy community to facilitate planning for multi-messenger astronomy with gravitational waves. We determine the expected sensitivity of the network to transient(More)
Aims. A transient astrophysical event observed in both gravitational wave (GW) and electromagnetic (EM) channels would yield rich scientific rewards. A first program initiating EM follow-ups to possible transient GW events has been developed and exercised by the LIGO and Virgo community in association with several partners. In this paper, we describe and(More)
We present the results of a LIGO search for gravitational waves (GWs) associated with GRB 051103, a short-duration hard-spectrum gamma-ray burst whose electromagnetically determined sky position is coincident with the spiral galaxy M81, which is 3.6 Mpc from Earth. Possible progenitors for shorthard GRBs include compact object mergers and soft gamma(More)
Soils of all types and locations have generally served as the major sources of streptomycetous bacteria. These organisms are the source of nearly 80% of the world's antibiotics. Now, it is realized that Streptomyces spp. (within the group of prokaryotic filamentous bacteria known as actinomycetes) can exist as endophytes within the interstices of some(More)

Because of the wide range of concentrations of Mycobacterium leprae in existing lepromins the authors studied methods of producing a standardizable lepromin containing 160 million bacilli/ml. The effects of using different dilutions of lepromin on the incidence of false-positive reactions were also studied.Progress reported includes a convenient method for(More)

Common name: least chub. Conservation Status: Iotichthys phlegethontis is currently listed as a candidate species under the federal Endangered Species Act. Identification: Iotichthys phlegethontis is a small cyprinid, maximum length of 64 mm with relatively large scales, between 34 and 38 lateral scales, but with no lateral line (Sigler & Sigler 1996).
