The genetic diversity among Sarcocystis gigantea isolates derived from individual cysts within a given infected animal at two abattoirs in Australia and one abattoir in Germany was studied using Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of the intergenic transcribed spacer region 1 (ITS 1) of the ribosomal RNA gene operon. S. gigantea(More)

Modern power grids must be highly reliable and provide power with a high quality. Power quality issues like voltage sags or current harmonics must be minimized, in order to achieve high levels of reliability in the system. One possible way to overcome such problems is through the utilization of active power filters like a Unified Power Quality Conditioner(More)
Swimming evaluation it’s the most appropriate procedure to analyze the development of a swimmer since age group swimming. The training control provides tools to prescribe intensities and volumes of training, but also assesses the improvement of each swimmer throughout that prescription. In the season 2007/2008 Leiria’ Swimming Association had 419 swimmers(More)

J Strength Cond Res 31(9): 2447-2454, 2017-Even though dry-land S&C training is a common practice in the context of swimming, there are countless uncertainties over its effects in performance of age group swimmers.(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the reliability of tethered swimming in the evaluation of age group swimmers. The sample was composed of 8 male national level swimmers with at least 4 years of experience in competitive swimming. Each swimmer performed two 30 second maximal intensity tethered swimming tests, on separate days. Individual(More)
