This study examined the effects of different types of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) programs on vertical jump performance. Twenty seven healthy trained male students in sports-sciences were recruited and randomized into three groups. The control group (C group, n = 8) did not perform NMES training. Two other groups underwent 3 training(More)
—Authentication is one of the biggest issues concerning information security in the context of distributed environments. Actually, this crucial step enables both to authorize (or not) a user to access a resource and to define different classes of users on the system. Many papers, like [16], [17], expound various solutions to provide authentication in(More)
Hydrogen sulfide is a potent lethal gas. Supportive care, nitrite therapy and hyperbaric oxygen are the treatment modalities reported in the literature in cases of hydrogen sulfide exposure. We describe an industrial exposure in which 6 workers inhaled high concentrations of hydrogen sulfide when they entered a closed spreader tank partially filled with(More)
High-volume hemofiltration (HVHF) has been suggested as an adjuvant treatment of septic shock because of its capacities to remove inflammatory mediators from blood. Nevertheless, HVHF presents some important drawbacks, such as the depletion of low molecular weight molecules (nutriments, vitamins, trace elements and antibiotics) due to the high(More)
The carbometalation reaction of allyl- and crotylzinc bromide with metalated disubstituted homoallylic ethers gives tri- or tetrasubstituted 5-hexenyl ethers with excellent control of the diastereoselectivity. The stereochemistry of this reaction is discussed and has been attributed to an early transition state with chelation to the oxygen atom in the(More)
– Classical Bloom filters may be used to elegantly check if an element e belongs to a set S, and, if not, to add e to S. They do not store any data and only provide boolean answers regarding the membership of a given element in the set, with some probability of false positive answers. Bloom filters are often used in caching system to check that some(More)
