Although there are a number of papers on how fish swim (Gray, 1957; Aleev, 1969; Lighthill, 1969), we have been unable to find any measurements of the pressure on the body surface measured while a fish is swimming. A preliminary calculation using the Pitot equation indicated that the pressure against the anterior surface of the fish, expressed in(More)
Experiments were performed to determine the diurnal variation of, as well as the influence of total darkness on, tonic accommodation. In general, under both conditions trend analysis showed that variations in tonic accommodation over time were either nonsystematic in nature or could be best described by a simple linear function. Given the relatively small(More)
BACKGROUND This study evaluated the effectiveness of 3 approaches to transferring cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to addiction clinicians in the Republic of South Africa (RSA). METHODS Clinicians (N = 143) were assigned to 3 training conditions: ( 1 ) an in vivo (IV) approach in which clinicians received in-person training and coaching; ( 2 ) a(More)
During a four-month period, 1,164 patients presented to the surgical section of our Emergency Services (ES) with chief complaints involving the hand. Patient records were analyzed for several variables including demographics, diagnosis and therapeutic procedures. Lacerations were the most frequent injury, 61.5% (n=716) with deep structure injuries present(More)
1. Pressure previously measured on the body surface of swimming bluefish were resolved into their backward vectorial components to allow calculation of profile drag. It was 0.18 kg at a speed of 1.8 m/sec. Tangential drag was calculated as if for a thin plate of an area equal to that of the fish. It was 0.08 kg at 1.8 m/sec. Net drag, 0.26 kg, was the sum(More)
