The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of static and dynamic stretching protocols within general and activity specific warm-ups. Nine male and ten female subjects were tested under four warm-up conditions including a 1) general aerobic warm-up with static stretching, 2) general aerobic warm-up with dynamic stretching, 3) general and specific(More)
In this paper, a well-conditioned collocation method is constructed for solving general p-th order linear differential equations with various types of boundary conditions. Based on a suitable Birkhoff interpolation, we obtain a new set of polynomial basis functions that results in a collocation scheme with two important features: the condition number of the(More)
 Social cash transfers in many developing countries   effectively tackle poverty  enhance growth's effectiveness in reducing poverty   stimulate economic growth.  Social cash transfers are affordable in most developing countries, with development partner support playing an important role in some countries.  Design elements that maximise the(More)
The extent and location of the sacral parasympathetic nucleus was studied in 6 dogs, using light microscopy. After interruption of the pelvic nerve, chromatolytic somata were observed in thionin-stained transverse serial sections (15 mum) of appropriate spinal cord segments. Maps of the sacral parasympathetic nucleus were made by plotting the chromatolytic(More)
The major caudal nerves of the rat provide an excellent model for longitudinal evaluation of nerve repair following a crush lesion. The surgical procedure and the method for testing sensory recovery are described in detail. Using this technique a clear, positive effect of ORG.2766 (an ACTH (4-9) analog) on the regeneration of sensory nerves could be shown.(More)
Previous investigators have speculated that applying additional external load throughout the eccentric phase of the jumping movement could amplify the stretch-shortening cycle mechanism and modulate jumping performance and jump exercise intensity. The aims of this study, therefore, were to determine the effect of increased eccentric phase loading, as(More)
Wayne County is Michigan's most populous county with 1.7 million residents and its county seat in Detroit. Unlike many other counties throughout the state, Wayne County does not provide a government-supported law library to serve its residents. The Arthur Neef Law Library which serves the Wayne State University Law School has a long-standing tradition of(More)
This paper serves as our first effort to develop a new triangular spectral element method (TSEM) on unstructured meshes, using the rectangle–triangle mapping proposed in the conference note (Li et al. 2011). Here, we provide some new insights into the originality and distinctive features of the mapping, and show that this transform only induces a(More)
