Broiler (meat) chickens have been subjected to intense genetic selection. In the past 50 years, broiler growth rates have increased by over 300% (from 25 g per day to 100 g per day). There is growing societal concern that many broiler chickens have impaired locomotion or are even unable to walk. Here we present the results of a comprehensive survey of(More)
This study looks at the body image, mood and quality of life of a group of 36 young people aged between 11 and 19 years who had burns as children, compared with an age-matched control group of 41 young people who had not had these injuries. Participants completed the Body Esteem Scale (BES), the Satisfaction With Appearance Scale (SWAP), the Beck Depression(More)
DNA profiling has been automated by the fluorescent tagging of amplified variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) loci. This was achieved by the use of fluorescently labeled primers in the amplification of 10 ng of genomic DNA, coupled with laser detection of the products during electrophoresis. The PCR products are sized by co-electrophoresing a standard size(More)
Between 1993 and 1998, 49 consecutive patients with impending or complete pathological fractures of the femur due to metastatic bone disease were treated with intramedullary nailing. Twenty-four were treated with a long Gamma nail and 32 with an AO nail with a cephalomedullary spiral blade. Both implants gave a good functional result with relief of pain and(More)
The Solar Wind Around Pluto (SWAP) instrument on New Horizons will measure the interaction between the solar wind and ions created by atmospheric loss from Pluto. These measurements provide a characterization of the total loss rate and allow us to examine the complex plasma interactions at Pluto for the first time. Constrained to fit within minimal(More)
BACKGROUND It is well established that there is anxiety-related variation between observers in the very earliest, pre-attentive stage of visual processing of images such as emotionally expressive faces, often leading to enhanced attention to threat in a variety of disorders and traits. Whether there is also variation in early-stage affective (i.e. valenced)(More)
The Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) mission will make the first global observations of the heliosphere’s interaction with the interstellar medium. IBEX achieves these breakthrough observations by traveling outside of the Earth’s magnetosphere in a highly elliptical orbit and taking global Energetic Neutral Atoms (ENA) images over energies from ~10 eV(More)
The Medium Energy Neutral Atom (MENA) imager was developed in response to the Imaging from the Magnetopause to the Aurora for Global Exploration (IMAGE) requirement to produce images of energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) in the energy range from 1 to 30 keV. These images will be used to infer characteristics of magnetospheric ion distributions. The MENA imager(More)
