Chemical insecticides and entomopathogenic nematodes have been independently used to suppress corn rootworm damage in maize. We report on the mortality response of larvae of the western corn rootworm, Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte, to the combined treatment with 1 of 3 insecticides (terbufos, fonofos, and tefluthrin) and the entomopathogenic(More)
Metaflumizone, (EZ)-2'-[2-(4-cyanophenyl)-1-(alpha,alpha,alpha-trifluoro-m-tolyl)ethylidene]-4-(trifluoromethoxy) carbanilohydrazide, was discovered by Nihon Nohyaku in the early 1990s and belongs to the new class of semicarbazone insecticides. It is now being globally co-developed as the animal health product, ProMeris((R)), in cooperation with Fort Dodge(More)
We present molecular dynamics simulations of a realistic model of an ultrathin film of BaTiO3 sandwiched between short-circuited electrodes to determine and understand effects of film thickness, epitaxial strain, and the nature of electrodes on its ferroelectric phase transitions as a function of temperature. We determine a full epitaxial strain-temperature(More)

Valley lines on total-energy surfaces for the zone-center distortions of freestanding and in-plane strained SrTiO3 are investigated with a newly developed first-principles structure optimization technique [Jpn. J. Appl. Phys. 43 (2004), 6785]. The results of numerical calculations confirmed that the ferroelectricity is induced, and the Curie temperature is(More)
Thirty-four patients were submitted to the conventional cervical myelography by administration of metrizamide (Amipaque) through three routes (lumbar 23, suboccipital 6, C1-C2 lateral 5). After the injection of metrizamide (4-11 ml, 170-250 mgI/ml), all procedures of the cervical myelography were done as soon as possible within 9 minutes. The adverse(More)
