A total of 100, day-old broiler chicks were randomly divided into 5 equal groups and kept under elevated temperature (93-97 o F) to see the effect of ascorbic acid and acetylsalicylic acid on the feed conversion ratio (FCR), immune status and ratio of weight of bursa, thymus and spleen to body weight. Heat stress increased the FCR but decreased the immune(More)
Impaired lipid metabolism resulting from uncontrolled hyperglycaemia has been implicated in cardiovascular complications in diabetes patients. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of glycaemic control on the lipid profile of diabetic patients. We also determined the ability of glycated haemoglobin (HbA(1c)) as an indirect marker of dyslipidaemia.(More)
Measurements of cross sections of inelastic and diffractive processes in proton–proton collisions at LHC energies were carried out with the ALICE detector. The fractions of diffractive processes in inelastic collisions were determined from a study of gaps in charged particle pseudora-pidity distributions: for single diffraction (diffractive mass
Differential cross sections of charged particles in inelastic pp collisions as a function of p T have been measured at √ s = 0.9, 2.76 and 7 TeV at the LHC. The p T spectra are compared to NLO-pQCD calculations. Though the differential cross section for an individual √ s cannot be described by NLO-pQCD, the relative increase of cross section with √ s is in(More)
The ALICE Collaboration at the LHC has measured the J/ψ and ψ photoproduction at mid-rapidity in ultra-peripheral Pb–Pb collisions at √ s NN = 2.76 TeV. The charmonium is identified via its leptonic decay for events where the hadronic activity is required to be minimal. The analysis is based on an event sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of(More)
Cephalobus litoralis (Akhtar, 1962) Andrássy, 1984 reproduced parthenogenetically and completed its life cycle in 72-90 hours. Each female deposited 200-300 eggs. The nematodes showed synchronized movements in the rhythms of the anterior parts of the body. The nematodes were coiled when dried in culture medium or in slowly evaporating water droplets on the(More)
We investigated the effects of positive embodied affect and embodied learning environments on adult learners' memory of novel historical text, motivation, near transfer, and far transfer. Participants were randomly assigned to three types of learning environments: Surrogate Embodiment in a multiuser virtual environment (MUVE), Imagined Embodiment, and No(More)
The inclusive production cross sections at forward rapidity of J/ψ, ψ(2S), ϒ(1S) and ϒ(2S) are measured in pp collisions at √ s = 7 TeV with the ALICE detector at the LHC. The analysis is based on a data sample corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 1.35 pb −1. Quarko-nia are reconstructed in the dimuon-decay channel and the signal yields are(More)
Measurements of charged jet production as a function of centrality are presented for p–Pb collisions recorded at √ s NN = 5.02 TeV with the ALICE detector. Cen-trality classes are determined via the energy deposit in neutron calorimeters at zero degree, close to the beam direction, to minimise dynamical biases of the selection. The corresponding number of(More)
The measurement of primary π ± , K ± , p and p production at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.5) in proton–proton collisions at √ s = 7 TeV performed with a large ion collider experiment at the large hadron collider (LHC) is reported. Particle identification is performed using the specific ioni-sation energy-loss and time-of-flight information, the ring-imaging(More)
