Eight competitive cyclists [mean peak oxygen consumption, (V˙O2peak) = 65 ml · min−1 · kg−1] undertook two 60-min cycle ergometer time trials at 32°C and 60% relative humidity. The time trials were split into two 30-min phases: a fixed-workload phase and a variable-workload phase. Each trial was preceded by ingestion of either a glycerol solution [1 g ·(More)
A 4-year-old girl was lost for 17 hours in a snowstorm. Upon discovery, her core temperature was 72 degrees F (22 degrees C). While undergoing endotracheal intubation in the emergency department, she experienced sudden ventricular fibrillation and cardiac arrest. Closed chest cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) was instituted, and standard rewarming(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe trends in the prescription of menopausal estrogens and medroxyprogesterone in the United States. METHODS Annual estimates of the number of prescriptions for menopausal estrogens and medroxyprogesterone and descriptive information on patients and providers were obtained from two pharmaceutical marketing research data bases, the(More)
The Children Service Interview was designed as a brief measure of service use related to mental health problems in Great Britain. We validated the Children’s Services Interview against medical records from a sample of 87 children, and assessed test–retest reliability from 25 parents completing two interviews. We examined criterion validity by looking at the(More)
The authors hypothesized that the relationship between conscientiousness and job performance would be stronger for persons high in agreeableness than for those low in agreeableness. Results of hierarchical moderated regression analyses for 7 independent samples of employees across diverse occupations provided support for the hypothesis in 5 of the samples.(More)
The aims of the present study were to compare (1) Holstein-Friesian heifers versus early postpartum lactating cows, and (2) different age categories of crossbred beef heifers versus cows, in terms of oocyte yield, morphological quality and developmental competence. Four experiments were designed to test the associated hypotheses. In Experiment 1, ovum pick(More)
The release of mine effluents can have a damaging impact on receiving water bodies. Therefore, treatment of mine waters before discharge is imperative. A novel biological SO²⁻₄ removal technology has been developed whereby the degradation/fermentation products of grass cellulose, volatile fatty acids (VFA), function as the electron donors and SO²⁻₄ as the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The diagnostic potentials of ultraviolet-excitation fluorescence spectroscopy and diffuse-reflectance spectroscopy of tissue are assessed in a study to identify cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in vivo. A multivariate algorithm is used to classify tissue into normal tissues, CIN I, and CIN II/III categories, based on(More)
Involucrin, a protein subunit of keratinocyte cross-linked envelopes, is a distinctive marker for suprabasal differentiation in stratified squamous epithelium. Immunoperoxidase staining for involucrin was used to evaluate paraffin sections of tissue obtained by colposcopically directed biopsies of infectious, metaplastic, and dysplastic lesions of the(More)
