" Machines alone do not give us mass production. Mass production is achieved by both machines and men. " – Henry Ford II Abstract — Intelligent assist devices (IADs) are a new class of hybrid 1 devices for direct, physical, interaction with a human operator in shared workspaces. These devices – designed for the assembly line worker – can reduce ergonomics(More)
— Thick, fully depleted p-channel charge-coupled devices (CCDs) have been developed at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). These CCDs have several advantages over conventional thin, n-channel CCDs, including enhanced quantum efficiency and reduced fringing at near-infrared wavelengths and improved radiation tolerance. Here we report results(More)
The National Zoological Park has maintained a breeding colony of Matschie's tree kangaroos (Dendrolagus matschiei) since 1975 with a documented history and continued prevalence of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) infections. No evidence of immunosuppressive retrovirus infections or loss of heterozygosity that may have led to an immune dysfunction in these(More)
Invasive aspergillosis is a major threat to patients with chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). Fungal pathogenesis is the result of a diminished antifungal capacity and dysregulated inflammation. A deficient NADPH-oxidase complex results in defective phagolysosomal alkalization. To investigate the contribution of defective pH regulation in phagocytes among(More)
The antigenicity and composition of chromatins differ markedly in chromatin preparations obtained by different procedures. Rat Novikoff hepatoma chromatin (NC) obtained by the "salt precip itation" and the micrococcal nuclease digestion procedures using significant levels of EDTA and NaCI each shows a common complement fixation (CF) capacity, exceeding(More)
Intelligent assist devices (IADs) are a new class of hybrid' devices for direct, physical, interaction with a human operator in shared workspaces. These devices-designed for the assembly line worker-can reduce ergonomics concerns that arise due to on-the-job physical and cognitive loading, while improving safety, quality and productivity. Cobots, a subset(More)
A flat transducer was constructed, using a 9-microm-thick PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) film for generation and detection of high-frequency ultrasonic waves, and used for measurements of the phase velocity of longitudinal waves traveling along the thickness direction in a very thin material. The transducer has a useful wideband frequency characteristic(More)
