Some clonal organisms may live for thousands of years and show no signs of senescence, while others consistently die after finite life spans. Using two models, we examined how stage-specific life-history rates of a clone's modules determine whether a genetic individual escapes senescence by replacing old modules with new ones. When the rates of clonal or(More)
A study was carried out in 1990 to guide the development of a protocol for assessing residential exposures of children to time-weighted-average (TWA) power-frequency magnetic fields. The principal goal of this dosimetry study was to determine whether area (i.e., spot and/or 24 h) measurements of power-frequency magnetic fields in the residences and in the(More)
The solutions of dobutamine hydrochloride (5 mg/ml), dopamine hydrochloride (4 mg/ml), nitroglycerin (1 mg/ml) and sodium nitroprusside (1 mg/ml) in dextrose 5% injection were stable for 24 h when stored at 25 degrees C in 60-ml plastic syringes. For sodium nitroprusside, the syringes must be wrapped with aluminium foil (provided by the manufacturer),(More)
Francisella tularensis type A is the primary cause of tularemia in animals and humans in North America. The majority of research on F. tularensis has been done with the attenuated live vaccine strain (LVS), which is a type B, but very few wild-type F. tularensis strains have been characterized. A gram-negative coccobacillus that was isolated in pure culture(More)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) attempts to identify and understand new risks associated with medical device use; communicate information and recommendations to device users; help manage known risks by providing strategies to facilitate safe use; guide manufacturers to improve design, labeling, and training to address known risks; and guide(More)
The Sivers mechanism for the single-spin asymmetry in unpolarized lepton scattering from a transversely polarized nucleon is driven by the orbital angular momentum carried by its quark and gluon constituents, combined with QCD final-state interactions. Both quark and gluon mechanisms can generate such a single-spin asymmetry, though only the quark mechanism(More)
The correlation coefficients a, A, and B in neutron beta decay are proportional to the ratio of the axial-vector-to-vector weak coupling constants, gA/gV, to leading recoil order. With the advent of the next generation of neutron-decay experiments, the recoil-order corrections to these expressions become experimentally accessible, admitting a plurality of(More)
