Keywords: SWAT Continuous rainfall–runoff model Eastern Desert Sinai peninsula Remote sensing GIS s u m m a r y Efforts to understand and to quantify precipitation and its partitioning into runoff evapo-transpiration, and recharge are often hampered by the absence or paucity of appropriate monitoring systems. We applied methodologies for rainfall–runoff and(More)
The dramatic increase in space-borne sensors over the past two decades is presenting unique opportunities for new and enhanced applications in various scientific disciplines. Using these data sets, hydrogeologists can now address and understand the partitioning of water systems on regional and global scales, yet such applications present mounting challenges(More)
BACKGROUND In children with meningitis, there is a difficulty to verify the etiology as viral or bacterial. Therefore, intensive research has been carried out to find new and rapid diagnostic methods for differentiating bacterial from viral meningitis. OBJECTIVES The aim of this work was to study the behavior of procalcitonin (PCT) and whether it can be(More)

A Stewart platform is a parallel manipulator robot that is able to perform three linear movements, lateral, longitudinal, and vertical, and three rotations, pitch, yaw, and roll. This paper reports a 30 mm × 30 mm × 34 mm miniscale Stewart platform using TiNiCu shape-memory-alloy (SMA) actuators. The proposed Stewart platform possesses various advantages,(More)
—This paper reports a 30 mm × 30 mm × 34 mm mini-scale parallel manipulator using shape-memory-alloy (SMA) microactuators that poses various advantages such as a large actuation force and a high robustness with a simple mechanical structure. The developed parallel manipulator that uses four SMA actuators and four bias springs is able to perform linear(More)
Enteric duplication cysts (EDCs) are benign congenital anomalies that are found incidentally in adults. Gastric duplication cysts (GDCs) are the least common subtype of EDC, but when located near the pancreas, may resemble other neoplastic conditions. We report a case of GDC adjacent to the pancreas with high cystic fluid amylase and carcinoembryonic(More)
