Plasma and platelet taurine concentrations were assayed in 39 patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and in 34 control subjects matched for age, sex, and both total and protein-derived daily energy intake. Platelet aggregation induced by arachidonic acid in vitro at baseline and after oral taurine supplementation (1.5 g/d) for 90 d was… (More)
Many of commercially available circuits for CNC machines have digitized input so there is a need to map continuous motions onto discrete planes. This paper appreciates the efficiency of Bresenham algorithm and extends this concept to 3 − D linear and helical movements.

This white paper focuses on the important task of acquiring reliable charging properties of submicron/micron individual lunar dust grains in order to understand the physical and dynamical process in the lunar environment. The lunar surface is mostly covered with a layer of dust grains formed by meteoritic impact over billions of years. Dust grains in the… (More)
