In this paper we describe the design and production of a Catalan database for building synthetic voices. Two speakers have recorded 10 hours of speech each one. The speaker selection and the corpus design aim to provide resources for high quality synthesis. In fact, as a side effect, in the speaker selection proccess we have produced 10 databases of 1 hour(More)
STUDY DESIGN A case of thoracic spinal cord compression due to tumoral calcinosis (TC) is reported. SETTING Galiza, Spain. CASE REPORT A 59-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a 2-month history of gradual leg weakness and sensory deficit. The neurological examination revealed paraparesis with T12 sensory level. Magnetic resonance imaging(More)

By means of spin-polarized low-energy electron microscopy, we show that the magnetic easy axis of one to three atomic-layer thick cobalt films on Ru(0001) changes its orientation twice during deposition: One-monolayer and three-monolayer thick films are magnetized in plane, while two-monolayer films are magnetized out of plane. The Curie temperatures of(More)
The effects of a partially purified aqueous extract ofSolanum malacoxylon (SM) leaves and of an SM extract incubated with ruminal fluid (RF) prior to administration on intestinal phosphate and calcium absorption in rachitic rats were compared with 1α, 25-dihydroxy-vitamin D3[1α,25-(OH)2-D3] using a duodenal loop in situ method. The time course responses(More)
First principles calculations of the O surfaces of Co-ZnO show that substitutional Co ions develop large magnetic moments which long-range order depends on their mutual distance. The local spin polarization induced at the O atoms is 3 times larger at the surface than in the bulk, and the surface stability is considerably reinforced by Co. Moreover, a robust(More)
Magnetite (Fe3O4) shows singular electronic and magnetic properties, resulting from complex electron-electron and electron-phonon interactions that involve the interplay of charge, orbital and spin degrees of freedom. The Verwey transition is a manifestation of these interactions, with a puzzling connection between the low temperature charge ordered state(More)
This paper presents the results of the long-term operation and monitoring of membrane fouling at several full-scale MF/RO water recycling facilities operated by Agbar in Spain. It was demonstrated that membranes give very reliable treatment enabling the production of high-grade recycled water, well disinfected and with the removal of all priority(More)
At ambient conditions, the Fe3O4(0 0 1) surface shows a (√2 × √2)R45° reconstruction that has been proposed as the surface analog of the bulk phase below the Verwey transition temperature, T(V). The reconstruction disappears at a high temperature, T(S), through a second order transition. We calculate the temperature evolution of the surface electronic(More)
