Sixteen species (44 samples) of marine polychaetes and 10 species (14 samples) of bryozoans from eastern Australia were analyzed by GC/MS for the key seafood flavor components 2- and 4-bromophenol, 2, 4- and 2,6-dibromophenol, and 2,4,6-tribromophenol. All five bromophenols were found in 91% of polychaetes and 64% of bryozoans. The remaining samples all(More)
— We analyze and implement a networked control system where the communication between the sensors, the controller, and the actuator takes place over a wireless LAN (802.11b) ad hoc system. The wireless LAN system introduces random delays and packet loss in the feedback loop. We present an extended version of the separation principle of Linear Quadratic(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the impact of training modification on achieving performance goals. Previous research demonstrates an inverse relationship between injury burden and success in team sports. It is unknown whether this relationship exists within individual sport such as athletics. DESIGN A prospective, cohort study (n=33 International Track and(More)
Cadmium, copper, iron, and zinc levels were measured in the kidneys of 115 grey wolves (Canis lupus) from Idaho, Montana and Alaska (United States), and from the Northwest Territories (Canada). No significant differences in the levels of iron or copper were observed between locations, but wolf kidneys from more northern locations had significantly higher(More)
BACKGROUND Clinically it is understood that rapid increases in training loads expose an athlete to an increased risk of injury; however, there are no systematic reviews to qualify this statement. OBJECTIVE The aim of this systematic review was to determine training and competition loads, and the relationship between injury, illness and soreness. METHODS(More)
Incidental fisheries capture has been identified as having a major effect on shark populations throughout the world. However, factors that contribute to the mortality of shark bycatch during fisheries capture are not fully understood. Here, we investigated the effects of capture duration, sea surface temperature, and shark total length (snout to the tip of(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate inter and intra-tester reliability of an externally fixed dynamometry unilateral hamstring strength test, in the elite sports setting. DESIGN Reliability study. METHODS Sixteen, injury-free, elite male youth football players (age=16.81±0.54 years, height=180.22±5.29cm, weight 73.88±6.54kg, BMI=22.57±1.42) gave written informed(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the effects of experimental adductor pain on the pain referral pattern, mechanical sensitivity and muscle activity during common clinical tests. DESIGN Repeated-measures design. METHODS In two separate sessions, 15 healthy males received a hypertonic (painful) and isotonic (control) saline injection to either the adductor(More)
BACKGROUND Groin injury is a common musculoskeletal complaint for athletes competing in a variety of sports. The extent to which exercise interventions incorporating external load are an appropriate option for the treatment and prevention of groin injury in athletes is not yet clear. OBJECTIVES The aim of this review was to describe and evaluate exercise(More)
