Microelectrodes of the Au-Hg amalgam type have been used together with square wave voltammetry to measure profiles of oxygen, peroxide, Fe, Mn and sulfur chemical species through the thickness of natural assemblage marine biofilms grown on stainless steel alloy Nitronic 50 (UNS S20910). The data show Mn+2 and peroxide together at locations where the(More)

OBJECTIVE To determine neonatal outcome at 7 months of corrected age in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants with placental chorioamnionitis. METHODS We conducted a cohort study of 287 VLBW infants delivered as a result of preterm premature rupture of membranes (PROM) or preterm labor. Control subjects (n = 123) had placentas with absent umbilical cord(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of exposure to chorioamnionitis on developmental outcome in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants. METHODS Five hundred four maternal charts (97% of all VLBW infants delivered from 1990 to 1994) were reviewed. A historical cohort study of the 330 infants delivered secondary to preterm premature rupture of membranes or(More)
Our freedoms in cyberspace are those granted by code and the protocols it implements. When man and machine interact, co-exist, and intermingle, cyberspace comes to interpenetrate the real world fully.

Yet many questions still exist about whether a software economy based on FOSS would be viable. We argue that contemporary trends definitively demonstrate this viability. Claiming that an economy must be evaluated as much by the ends it brings(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the use of the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) for selected high-risk pregnant women. METHODS Beginning in November of 1999, women on the Maternal Fetal Medicine service at Albany Medical Center Hospital (AMCH) were candidates for antepartum lodging at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH). Women whose only indication for antepartum(More)
