Jupiter's nonthermal microwave emission, as measured by a global network of 11 radio telescopes, increased dramatically during the Shoemaker-Levy 9 impacts. The increase was wavelength-dependent, varying from approximately 10 percent at 70 to 90 centimeters to approximately 45 percent at 6 and 36 centimeters. The radio spectrum hardened (flattened toward(More)
OBJECT Decompressive craniectomy is an established procedure to lower intracranial pressure. Therefore, cranioplasty remains a necessity in neurosurgery as well. If the patient's own bone flap is not available, the surgeon can choose between various alloplast grafts. A review of the literature proves that 4-13.8% of polymethylmethacrylate plates and 2.6-10%(More)
INTRODUCTION Calprotectin, a heterodimeric complex of S100A8/9 (MRP8/14), has been proposed as an important serum biomarker that reflects disease activity and structural joint damage in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The objective of this cross-sectional study was to test the hypothesis that calprotectin is associated with clinical and ultrasound-determined(More)
INTRODUCTION The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the serum levels and local expression of resistin in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies to controls, and to determine the relationship between resistin levels, inflammation and disease activity. METHODS Serum resistin levels were determined in 42 patients with inflammatory(More)
Typically, battery models are complex and difficult to parameterize to match real-world data. Achieving a good generalized fit between measured and simulated results should be done using a variety of laboratory data. Numerical optimizations can ensure the best possible fit between a simulation model and measured data, given a set of constraints. In this(More)
The NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) has a long history of providing large parabolic dish antennas with precision surfac%s, low-loss feeds and ultra-low noise amplifiers for deep space telecommunications. To realize the benefits of high sensitivity, it is important that receiving systems are accurately calibrated and monitored to maintain peak performance. A(More)
BACKGROUND Restoring normal physical functioning is a major therapeutic aim in the management of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It is unknown, whether the extent of synovial inflammation quantified by musculoskeletal ultrasound (US) can predict current or future capacity for physical functioning. To answer this question we investigated the longitudinal(More)
OBJECTIVE Clinical remission in some patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) may be associated with ongoing synovial inflammation that is not always detectable on clinical examination or reflected by laboratory tests but can be visualized by musculoskeletal ultrasound. The goal of our study was to determine the levels of serum calprotectin, a major(More)
In October 1924, The Physical Review, a relatively minor journal at the time, published a remarkable two-part paper by John H. Van Vleck, working in virtual isolation at the University of Minnesota. Using Bohr's correspondence principle and Einstein's quantum theory of radiation along with advanced techniques from classical mechanics, Van Vleck showed that(More)
Results of an observing program to monitor the synchrotrons radio emission from Jupiter's inner radiation belts after the impact of Comet SL-9 are reported. The observations were made at 2295 MHz as part of the NASA-JPL Jupiter Patrol, a long term radio astronomy monitoring program begun in 1971. Data from the monitoring program illustrates the long-term(More)
