Professor Gell-Mann's "eightfold way" theory brought order to the chaos created by the discovery of some 100 particles in the atom's nucleus. Then he found that all of those particles, including the neutron and proton, are composed of fundamental building blocks that he named "quarks." The quarks are permanently confined by forces coming from the exchange of "gluons." He and others later constructed the quantum field theory of quarks and gluons, called "quantum chromodynamics," which seems to account for all the nuclear particles and their strong interactions." ...

Dilaton field minimally coupled to 2+1 gravity; uniqueness of the static Chan-Mann black hole and new dilaton stationary metrics  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Using the Schwarzschild coordinate frame for a static cyclic symmetric metric in 2+1 gravity coupled minimally to a dilaton logarithmically depending on the radial coordinate in the presence of an exponential potential, by solving first order linear Einstein equations, the general solution is derived and it is identified with the ChanMann dilaton solution. In these coordinates, a new stationary dilaton solution is obtained; it does not allow for a de SitterAnti-de Sitter limit at spatial infinity, where its structural functions increase indefinitely. On the other hand, it is horizonless and allows for a naked singularity at the origin of coordinates; moreover, one can identify at a large radial coordinate a (quasi-local) mass parameter and in the whole space a constant angular momentum. Via a general SL(2,R)transformation, applied on the static cyclic symmetric metric, a family of stationary dilaton solutions has been generated. A particular SL(2,R)transformation is identified, which gives rise to the rotating ChanMann dilaton solution. All the exhibited solutions have been characterized by their quasi-local energy, mass, and momentum through their series expansions at spatial infinity. The algebraic structure of the Riccienergy-momentum, and Cotton tensors is given explicitly.

Mann-Kendall Test for Analysis of Groundwater Contaminant Plume Stability and Evaluation of Sampling Frequency for Long-Term Monitoring - 13233  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes a spreadsheet-based approach for applying the Mann-Kendall (MK) Test to identify statistically significant increasing or decreasing concentration trends, stable concentration trends (not increasing or decreasing), and indeterminate concentration trends (no trend) defined by time-series groundwater monitoring data for inorganic, organic, or radiological contaminants. The approach has been applied in support of ongoing long-term monitoring (LTM) of groundwater contamination at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and elsewhere on the DOE Oak Ridge Reservation (ORR), and has proven effective at minimizing subjective bias in the evaluation and interpretation of contaminant concentration trend data. Application of the approach for the purposes of optimizing groundwater sampling frequency for LTM also is outlined. (authors)

The Genomic Standards Consortium was formed in September 2005. It is an international, open-membership working body which promotes standardization in the description of genomes and the exchange and integration of genomic data. The 2009 meeting was an activity of a five-year funding Research Coordination Network from the National Science Foundation and was organized held at the DOE Joint Genome Institute with organizational support provided by the JGI and by the University of California - San Diego. In quick succession Frank Oliver Glockner (MPI-Bremen), Victor Markowitz (LBNL), Nikos Kyripides (JGI), Folker Meyer (ANL), Linda Amaral-Zettler (Marine Biology Lab), and James Cole (Michigan State University) provide updates on a number of topics related to GSC projects at the Genomic Standards Consortium 8th meeting at the DOE JGI in Walnut Creek, Calif. on Sept. 9, 2009.

Physics Folklore  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Physics Folklore Physics Folklore By Lynne Zielinski       Sometime after World War II physicists began to change their way of giving names to theoretical ideas. Before then, new ideas were given titles such as "special relativity theory" or "neutrons." A precursor of the new kinds of names came in 1953 when Murray Gell-Mann and Kazuhiko Hishijima decided to name one of the properties of subatomic particles "strangeness." Gell-Mann accelerated the trend in 1961 by calling his group-theoretic way of explaining the properties of particles "The Eightfold Way." Gell-Mann's crazy names finally reached the consciousness of the general public in 1964 when he described the particles involved in the next stage of his thinking as "quarks." p. 508, source B

The Particle Adventure | What is the world made of? | The naming of quarks  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

The naming of quarks The naming of quarks The naming of quarks The naming of quarks... ...began when, in 1964, Murray Gell-Mann and George Zweig suggested that hundreds of the particles known at the time could be explained as combinations of just three fundamental particles. Gell-Mann chose the name "quarks," pronounced "kworks," for these three particles, a nonsense word used by James Joyce in the novel Finnegan's Wake: "Three quarks for Muster Mark!" In order to make their calculations work, the quarks had to be assigned fractional electrical charges of 2/3 and -1/3. Such charges had never been observed before. Quarks are never observed by themselves, and so initially these quarks were regarded as mathematical fiction. Experiments have since convinced physicists that not only do quarks exist, but there are six of them, not three.

Sequestering CO 2 significantly reduces the CO 2 emissions from the power plant itself, but this is not the total picture. CO 2 capture and sequestration consumes additional energy, thus lowering the plant's fuel to electricity efficiency. To compensate for this, more fossil fuel must be

graciosos quarks graciosos quarks Volver Principal ESTOY PERDIDO!!! Un poco de la historia del quark: En 1964 Murray Gell-Mann y George Zweig sugirieron que cientos de las partículas conocidas hasta el momento, podrían ser explicadas como una combinación de sólo 3 partículas fundamentales. Gell-Mann eligió el nombre caprichoso de "quarks" para estos constituyentes. Esta palabra aparece en la frase "three quarks for Muster Mark" en la novela de James Joyce, Finnegan's Wake. La parte revolucionaria de la idea era que ellos debieron asignarle a los quarks cargas eléctricas de 2/3 y -1/3 (en unidades de la carga del protón): nunca habían sido observadas cargas como esas. Primero los quarks fueron considerados como un truco matemático, pero los experimentos

Radiative Muon Capture  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The theory of radiative muon capture is developed. The discussion includes both parity conserving and nonconserving effects. The Gell-Mann weak magnetic term and the induced pseudoscalar are included, along with comparable relativistic effects in the nucleons. The theory is applied to light nuclei and especially to the radiative Godfrey reaction ?-+C126??+?+B125. An experiment to detect the induced pseudoscalar directly is proposed.

"Nucleon-Structural" Corrections to First Forbidden Unique Beta Transitions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The coupling of leptons to a conserved isovector current is shown to result in a small change in the shape of the electron momentum spectrum in forbidden unique beta transitions. The experimental advantages and disadvantages of studying such nucleon-structural effects in forbidden unique transitions rather than in allowed transitions, as suggested by Gell-Mann, are discussed. To facilitate the computations, the betadecay interaction Hamiltonian is written in a form in which the terms leading to the "nucleon-structural" corrections associated with the coupling of the leptons to a conserved isovector current and the terms leading to effects of comparable order of magnitude are simply identified.

Jordan-Schwinger map, 3D harmonic oscillator constants of motion, and classical and quantum parameters characterizing electromagnetic wave polarization  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In this work we introduce a generalization of the Jauch and Rohrlich quantum Stokes operators when the arrival direction from the source is unknown {\\it a priori}. We define the generalized Stokes operators as the Jordan-Schwinger map of a triplet of harmonic oscillators with the Gell-Mann and Ne'eman SU(3) symmetry group matrices. We show that the elements of the Jordan-Schwinger map are the constants of motion of the three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator. Also, we show that generalized Stokes Operators together with the Gell-Mann and Ne'eman matrices may be used to expand the polarization density matrix. By taking the expectation value of the Stokes operators in a three-mode coherent state of the electromagnetic field, we obtain the corresponding generalized classical Stokes parameters. Finally, by means of the constants of motion of the classical three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator we describe the geometric properties of the polarization ellipse

Coupled multi-body dynamics and CFD for wind turbine simulation including explicit wind turbulence  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A high fidelity approach for wind turbine aero-elastic simulations including explicit representation of the atmospheric wind turbulence is presented. The approach uses a dynamic overset computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code for the aerodynamics coupled with a multi-body dynamics (MBD) code for the motion responses to the aerodynamic loads. Mann's wind turbulence model was implemented into the CFD code as boundary and initial conditions. The wind turbulence model was validated by comparing the theoretical one-point spectrum for the three components of the velocity fluctuations, and by comparing the expected statistics from the CFD simulated wind turbulent field with the explicit wind turbulence inlet boundary from Mann model. Extensive simulations based on the proposed coupled approach were conducted with the conceptual NREL 5-MW offshore wind turbine in an increasing level of complexity, analyzing the turbine behavior as elasticity, wind shear and atmospheric wind turbulence are added to the simulations. Results are compared with the publicly available simulations results from OC3 participants, showing good agreement for the aerodynamic loads and blade tip deflections in time and frequency domains. Wind turbulence/turbine interaction was examined for the wake flow. It was found that explicit turbulence addition results in considerably increased wake diffusion. The coupled CFD/MBD approach can be extended to include multibody models of the shaft, bearings, gearbox and generator, resulting in a promising tool for wind turbine design under complex operational environments.

The group was already ancient when the giant dinosaurs made their appearance, ruled the animal kingdom during the Age of Reptiles, then became extinct. The turtles merely smiled their toothless smile and slowly went their way. With a shell that is both a house and a suit of armor, they have survived 200 million years with very few changes. Five species of aquatic turtles are more or less common in the Chicago region and three others are rare. One or more kinds can be found in each of over a hundred bodies of water in the forest preserves.

The lowest records elsewhere in the United States are--66 F at Riverside Ranger Station, Yellowstone Park, Wyoming, on Feb. 9, 1933; and -- 78 F at Fort Yukon, Alaska, on Jan. 14, 1934. The lowest record anywhere on earth is 90 F at Verkhoyansk, Siberia, Feb. 5 and 7, 1892. The greatest snowfall recorded in Chicago in one 24-hour period was 14.9 inches on Jan. 30, 1939; but 19.2 inches fell between 1:10 a.m. on March 24 and 8:33 p.m. on March 26, 1930.

He had been away twenty-four years on a trip with his father, Nicolo, and his uncle, Maffeo Polo. They had been forgotten by their family and friends. Three years later he was captured during a naval battle with the Genoese and lay in prison for several months. During this time he dictated an account of his travels and experiences to a fellow prisoner who wrote down over 200 chapters in a kind of French. Thus, he left to posterity one of the greatest books of all time, "The Travels of Marco Polo. .

Sioux and other plains Indians who followed the buffalo lived in teepees. The "longhouse" of the Iroquois, built of poles covered with bark and surrounded by a palisade, was a large permanent structure housing several families. So, too, were the fort-like pueblos and cliff dwellings built of rocks and adobe clay by some of the southwestern "agricultural" Indians.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist TURKEYS : WILD AND DOMESTICATED The story of the first Thanksgiving in 1621 and of the wild "Turkies" which the Pilgrims hunted to provide meat for the feast is familiar to every American. Today, although very few of us can claim that we had ancestors on the Mayflower, a lot of us imagine that our Thanksgiving bird is descended from those wild turkeys. This is not quite correct. A century before, in Mexico, the early Spanish adventurers had found Indians raising turkeys around their homes. The Aztec emperor, Montezuma, kept them in his famous zoo, it is said, as food for the other animals. It is not known how long those Mexican birds had been tamed and bred but they are the true ancestors of our only domestic animal with an origin in North America.

One species lays its eggs in water collected in hollow trees and logs. The other twenty-one species are classified in four groups according to their breeding habits. There are five species of the "woodland" group. These lay their eggs in little depressions in the woods, to be hatched after the warm rains in April or May of the following spring. They are all large, showy mosquitoes but have a short flight range. The "marsh" mosquitoes, of which we have six species, lay their eggs in the bottomlands and temporary swamps. These may fly as far as fifteen miles from their breeding places.

The recent heavy rains have put the DesPlaines river far out of its banks. Fish from tributaries and bottomland ponds or lakes where they escaped suffocation under the ice last winter, are moving about actively and restocking those stretches of the streams where thousands perished They may even come upstream, over the dams, from the lower river, Very few fish are ever swept downstream over dams.

In autumn they are forebodes of winter; in March, harbingers of another spring. We wonder where they go and what will happen to them. During those migrations between their ancestral nesting grounds in Canada and refuges where most of them winter nowadays, the "honkers" commonly fly in long V's -- sometimes in a long slanting line -- with a wise old bird, usually a gander, at the head. He honks and they respond at frequent intervals. From time to time he drops back and changes places with another experienced leader.

" That simple plea is included in the Lord' s Prayer because bread, made from wheat, was the "staff of life" in Palestine -- as it is for us today. Wheat bread is a source of energy that contains the food elements essential for the growth, health and upkeep of a human body. It is a staple food that is not only inexpensive but, uniquely, one which we never become tired of. The three most important grains used by mankind for food are wheat, rice, and Indian corn or maize. Next in importance are barley, rye, oats, and millet. The white races of people prize wheat far above any of the others. All seven -- known as cereal grains -- are the seeds of grasses descended from wild plants.

Partly, this is because the underwater world is so different from our life on land partly because aquatic animals are of so many strange kinds or are so secretive that they are "sights unseen" to most people. The best way to get better acquainted with many of the smaller ones is to catch, in a pond or stream, some small fish, tadpoles, crayfish, snails, or any of a wide variety of water insects. Carry them back home or to school in a bucket of water. Then they can be put in glass containers where they can be kept alive, their habits watched, and their life histories studied.

This much cussed and discussed immigrant was brought from Europe to America. about a century ago and quickly followed man across the continent. It builds large trashy nests of grass and straw, lined with feathers, under the eaves or roofs of garages, barns, sheds and porches, as well as in birdhouses. It is quarrelsome and they sang together to drive out songbirds. Sometimes it is called the House Sparrow but, strictly speaking, it is one of the Weaver Finches which build nests with a side entrance. It is not a sparrow.

Skunk Skunk Nature Bulletin No. 56 March 9, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE SKUNK There is nothing half-way about a skunk. It is one of our most beautiful and most valuable animals, but also one of the most unpopular. Fearless, he goes slowly and deliberately about his business. Most other mammals, including man, give him the right of way. He expects it. As a result many are killed on the highways. Skunks hunt mostly at night, rooting and digging for insects, grubs and meadow mice. They are also fond of frogs, crayfish, small snakes, turtle eggs, and the eggs of ground-nesting birds. They are the chief enemies of turtles and bumble bees. The quantity of grasshoppers, crickets, grubs and mice they consume makes the skunk valuable. In addition, their long thick glossy fur, black with white stripes, is an important item of the fur trade.

These are made by raccoons which come at night to eat discarded sandwiches, chicken bones and other food scraps. The hind feet as well as the front feet of the coon are built like hands and that its front foot, especially in mud or soft snow, leaves a print of the palm with four spread fingers and a thumb. The track of the hind foot is longer with a definite heal. The coon feels for fish, crawfish, frogs and snails along the water's edge, scrubbing each thoroughly before eating. Full of curiosity and mischief, a pet coon quickly learns to unlatch doors, play with small objects and pick people's pockets.

Like so many general statements, that remark by Ernest Thompson Seton, the great naturalist, artist and storyteller, should be taken with a grain of salt. Seton was speaking of mammals only. Modern man does have a sense of smell and in some individuals, such as wine tasters, coffee tasters and perfumers, it is highly developed but, in general, his nose is far inferior to the smellers of other mammals. Nearly all of them have noses which provide the most acute and discriminating of the five senses: smell, sight, hearing, touch and taste. Among the few exceptions are the toothed whales, believed to have no sense of smell at all.

Many persons walking through the upland woods of the forest preserves have found these insects on their clothing, on their bodies, even in their hair. In the pinewoods of Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan it is not uncommon to find a hundred or more ticks crawling up your clothing, and there it is necessary to carefully search every inch of your body for ticks, every night. Never try to pull one off after it has firmly attached itself to the skin. Otherwise the head may remain. Touch the body of the tick with a lighted cigarette, or a wad of cotton soaked in alcohol or gasoline, and the insect will drop off.

Bows and arrows are still used by primitive tribes, such as the pigmies in Africa and the aborigines in South American jungles, who frequently tip their arrows with deadly poisons. The warlike Indians of the Great Plains used bows and arrows long after the introduction of firearms.

There are four common groups of worms here: annelids, which include earthworms and sewage-sludge worms; tapeworms; flatworms; and roundworms. The last three are called the "Lower Worms" and many of them are parasitic in other animals.

In the United States today there are about as many rats as there are people. Cur common rat is the Norway or brown rat which arrived here from Europe before the Revolutionary War. Fiercer and more cunning, it soon exterminated the black rat and the roof rat which had migrated here with the early colonists and thrived. The black rat -- which is glossy black above, smaller and more slender -- and the roof rat, a close relative, are found now only rarely in some of the southern states, although still common in tropical America.

Persons wandering through the woods should learn to recognize and avoid poison ivy. It is a pernicious and frequent vine along fences, roadsides and hedgerows; it grows in large patches of erect plants in the deep woods, spreading by means of many underground runners; and it climbs trees, clinging to the bark with countless aerial rootlets. After the war we expect to eradicate large areas of poison ivy, particularly in picnic centers and along the trails, utilizing some of the new selective weedkillers that have been developed. Poison ivy should not be confused with the harmless Virginia Creeper, or Woodbine, which has five leaves coarsely toothed all around their edges.

During many periods of each year it was surrounded and isolated by mud. To be sure, there were dirt thoroughfares in all directions, graded and drained as best they could in those days, but not surfaced. No one who has never experienced it can appreciate how gooey and gluey a black prairie soil can be when wet. A wagon's wheels often become solid cylinders of mud as wide as a bass drum.

" He is one of hundreds of farmer-inventors who have made American agricultural tools and labor-saving machinery known and envied throughout the world. In contrast to the slow cumbersome methods of the Old World, our efficient well-designed farm implements have speeded up and lightened almost every task. The American farmer now produces more with less labor than any other on earth.

Fish Bait Fish Bait Nature Bulletin No. 70 June 15, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation FISH BAIT The bass season opens June 15 in the northern zone. Then the number of fishermen doubles because it will no longer be necessary to throw back a bass caught while fishing for crappies, bluegills, bullheads or carp. That breaks a fellow's heart. Fancy tackle is very hard to get this year. But black bass do take worms and minnows, as well as frogs, hellgramites, grasshoppers, crickets and other live baits. The fly-casters and bait-casters, who carry around a tackle box filled with gadgets made of wood, feathers, fur, paint and assorted hardware, have no better luck -- on the average -- than the live bait fishermen at whom they turn up their noses.

They have inner ears but no trace of an outside ear or eardrum, A sleeping snake will pay no attention to shouts or banging on a tin pan, but rouses immediately when a man or other animal walks near. Apparently snakes hear by feeling the vibrations of the earth, just as a person can hear a distant train by putting his ear to the track. Snakes are very short-sighted, their eyes being specially constructed for focusing on nearby small objects. That "glassy stare" is produced by a transparent cap or lid which covers the eye and cannot be moved. The eyeball inside is just as movable as yours.

Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation PLANT AND ANIMAL IMMIGRANTS When foreign plants and animals are brought to a new country they either become naturalized and thrive, or they cling to their old ways and die out. after they, too, find new freedoms because they leave their enemies, competitors, parasites, and some of their diseases behind them -- much as immigrant people do. The United States now supports about 300 times as many people as it did when Columbus discovered America. This is possible because the domesticated plants and animals that the early settlers brought with them give much higher yields of food and clothing than the Indians got from wild ones.

There are none here although, 30 years ago, there was a clump in a woods about a mile north of Edgebrook. There are some in Lake County, in ravines near Highland Park and Fort Sheridan. There are a few at the extreme east end of Indiana Dunes State Park.

In pioneer days they must have been common except in the prairie belt in Illinois, because many early writers speak of how the cattle and hogs thrived on beech "mat" -- the nuts that littered the ground beneath them.

These masses were usually round or egg-shaped, ranging in size from that of a tennis ball to that of a football. On the outside they were covered by a grayish scum with faint lines in a coarse design. Inside there was apparently nothing but a clear colorless jelly that quivered and shook like a well-chilled gelatin dessert. One man guessed that it was some sort of garbage; another, reasonably, that it was some strange plant growth.

Reapers Reapers Nature Bulletin No. 759 June 6, 1964 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor REAPERS The early settlers in Illinois and Indiana grew corn, but not much wheat other than patches of it to be ground into flour by local grist mills. There was a reason. In those days wheat had to be sown, cut and threshed in virtually the same way as it had been for 6000 years -- by hand -- and that meant countless hours of monotonous backbreaking toil. The earliest tool for cutting grain was a long knife of wood or bone with flakes of flint inserted to give it a saw like edge. Late Stone Age people used curved flint tools similar to the sickles made by ancient Egyptians of bronze and, later, of steel. The Romans developed a two-handed scythe that was gradually improved until, after the Middle Ages, a cradle was added.

Apparently lifeless and useless there on the ground, it harbors thousands of living things within and beneath it. Feeding on the wood of the log, living and dying, generation after generation of them, they convert it back into minerals which a fertile healthy forest soil must have. They also add the humus which not only helps the soil to hold its moisture but also aids in making the soil minerals usable as food by plants, including trees. Finally there is nothing left but crumbling punk shot through and through with the hyphae, or roots, of molds and mushrooms. Some of the common lower plant and animal forms found in a rotting log in our forest preserves are these.

There need not have been ONE if people only understood the damage done by forest and grass fires. Every spring and every fall, thousands of acres of prairie and vacant subdivisions are burnt off. Some of these fires jump over into forest preserves. Many fires start inside the preserves, or along their highway borders, from matches, cigarettes or pipe bottle thrown aside by careless people. Some start from picnic fires. A few are kindled by boys who have seen their parents or neighbors do the same thing at home.

They usually retire to some place where they do not actually freeze, or where they at least are protected from zero temperatures. Birds do not hibernate but most species migrate to warmer regions Fish to not hibernate but withdraw to deeper waters and their body processes slow down to the point where tbeir food and oxygen requirements are a tiny fraction of the needs during summer months Aquatic insects do not hibernate. Most land insects die, leaving behind them their descendants in the egg, larva or pupa stages. Some insects, though, as for instance certain species of mosquito, hibernate in basements, cisterns and such protected places.

The large variety of birds, mammals and other animal life now in this county is possible largely because the Forest Preserve District protects their natural habitats, including many that have been restored. These include timbered rolling uplands, wooded stream valleys, prairie remnants, sand flats, marshes, and a hundred bodies of water. Protection, for as much as forty years, against fire, hunting, trapping and other destruction has allowed the natural comeback of these habitats and the build-up of wildlife populations.

The largest and probably oldest pond is located in Swallow Cliff Woods, west of the picnic area in a grove of white pines planted about 40 years ago. The pond is dying. Like most others, if undisturbed, after fifty years or so it will be forgotten because in its place there will be trees willows, cottonwoods, soft maples, and probably swamp white and bur oaks. Indeed, at one time it had already filled up until, after being drained by tile, corn was grown there.

It's nothing to be ashamed of; it' s not even funny. Those people happen to be susceptible to "chiggers" which crawl on them as they lie on the grass, or work in the garden, or walk through tall grass and weeds. Chiggers are really harvest-ites, so small they scarcely can be seen by the naked eye, immature six-egged forms of various mites that attach themselves like ticks to the skin and gorge themselves with blood. "Chigger" is probably a corruption of "chigoe" and "jigger", two names for a small flea found in the West Indies and tropical America, which burrows beneath the toenails and skin of the feet to cause painful, sometimes serious ulcers.

The long drought, last summer and fall, dried up many of the smaller marshes and ponds where they had been living and forced them to migrate overland to new homes. Many undoubtedly were killed while enroute by mink, hawks, or dogs. Even the larger marshes and ponds were made smaller and more shallow by the drought and now this severe winter, with its long, bitter cold, has caused many of them to freeze solid to the very bottom; thus sealing the muskrats up in their lodges and preventing them from swimming around under the ice to get food.

They are so small that they come through ordinary screens into homes, stores and restaurants. From midsummer until the killing frosts of autumn, swarms of them cluster wherever ripe or fermenting fruit is exposed -- outdoor markets, tomato canneries, garbage cans, melon patches, vineyards, and apple, pear or peach orchards. At this season, hordes of them are found around cider mills where they breed in the cakes of pressed apple pulp or pomace. A few adults and young survive the winter in basement drains and other protected places with food and warmth.

Two nesting characteristics, however, are common to all owls. The eggs are nearly spherical and white, or off-white, without any markings. Also, a nesting female does not lay one egg per day, as most birds do, but at intervals of two or more days -- sometimes several. In extreme cases there may be a fresh egg, others incubating, and a newly hatched fledgling -- all in the same nest.

Monthly sunspot number time series analysis and its modeling through autoregressive artificial neural network  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

This study reports a statistical analysis of monthly sunspot number time series and observes non homogeneity and asymmetry within it. Using Mann-Kendall test a linear trend is revealed. After identifying stationarity within the time series we generate autoregressive AR(p) and autoregressive moving average (ARMA(p,q)). Based on minimization of AIC we find 3 and 1 as the best values of p and q respectively. In the next phase, autoregressive neural network (AR-NN(3)) is generated by training a generalized feedforward neural network (GFNN). Assessing the model performances by means of Willmott's index of second order and coefficient of determination, the performance of AR-NN(3) is identified to be better than AR(3) and ARMA(3,1).

Nonadditive entropy reconciles the area law in quantum systems with classical thermodynamics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The BoltzmannGibbsvon Neumann entropy of a large part (of linear size L) of some (much larger) d-dimensional quantum systems follows the so-called area law (as for black holes), i.e., it is proportional to Ld?1. Here we show, for d=1,2, that the (nonadditive) entropy Sq satisfies, for a special value of q?1, the classical thermodynamical prescription for the entropy to be extensive, i.e., Sq?Ld. Therefore, we reconcile with classical thermodynamics the area law widespread in quantum systems. Recently, a similar behavior was exhibited in mathematical models with scale-invariant correlations [C. Tsallis, M. Gell-Mann, and Y. Sato, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A.102 15377 (2005)]. Finally, we find that the system critical features are marked by a maximum of the special entropic index q.

Detecting and evaluating climate change effect on frequency analysis of wind speed  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The purpose of this study is to detect an existing trend in wind speed and to evaluate the effect of climate change on frequency analysis of wind speed in Iran. Twenty-two stations with a length of records higher than 50 years have been selected. Five statistical methods that were used to detect the trends are Mann-Kendall, Spearman-Conley, cumulative deviation, autocorrelation coefficient and regression analysis. It is revealed that 11 stations have a positive or a negative trend while the rest has no trend. Climate change leads to a lack of homogeneity in a number of stations. Therefore, it is impossible to use frequency analysis for those stations. One appropriate approach is dividing the stations into two smaller parts, and for each part, frequency analysis could be taken if the part is homogenous.

Our livestock feed on plants and plant products such as grass and grain. Plants, by means of their root systems, take moisture and nutrients from the soils on which they grow. Their food values, for us or for animals that furnish us food, depend upon the available nutrients in those soils. Soils contain solids, water and air. The solids, the bulk of a soil -- except in purely organic types such as peat and muck -- are mostly mineral materials. Ordinarily they also contain some organic material: decayed and decaying remains of plants and animals.

Candles Candles Nature Bulletin No. 590 Febraury 6, 1960 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist CANDLES The first candles probably consisted of dried rushes soaked in grease. Homemade rushlights were commonly used in England as late as 1800 because, although they smoked and smelled horribly, they were so cheap. In the Bible, candles are mentioned several times but there is no information on how or of what they were made. Eventually someone discovered the method of making a "tallow dip" with a wick running longitudinally through its center. The wick -- a few threads of flax, hemp, or cotton, lightly twisted or plaited -- was dipped in melted tallow and allowed to cool, again and again, until the candle had a desired thickness.

They do not realize that Cairo, where the Ohio river empties into the Mississippi, is on the same parallel of latitude as the north boundaries of three cotton- growing states: Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona. Cotton, a tropical plant which has been adapted to temperate regions where there is a growing season of six months or more, is the world's most important source of fiber. Man depends mainly upon cotton for his clothing and other textiles. Countless uses have been found for it and its by-products. It enters into the daily life of more of the world's peoples than any other product except salt.

La importancia de las redes de comunicacin con clientes o proveedores en funcin de la incertidumbre percibida del entorno  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Resumen El objetivo de este trabajo es analizar la importancia que las pymes conceden al establecimiento de redes de comunicacin con clientes o proveedores en funcin de la incertidumbre que perciben de su entorno. El nivel de incertidumbre se obtuvo aplicando la tipologa de celdas de Duncan (1972), que se basa en el dinamismo y la complejidad del entorno. Para ello se consider una muestra de pymes en Canarias (Espaa), durante el ao 2005, y se aplic la metodologa de Rasch (Rasch Rating Scale Model) junto con pruebas no paramtricas (Kruskal-Wallis y Mann-Whitney). La conclusin a la que se llega es que la mayora de las pymes en Canarias percibe un entorno de baja incertidumbre. A medida que perciben ms complejidad del entorno, las pymes dan ms importancia al establecimiento de redes de comunicacin externas con clientes o proveedores como una forma de hacerla frente y reducirla. The objective of this work is to analyze the importance that small and medium enterprises attach to the establishment of communication networks with customers or suppliers depending on their perception of environmental uncertainty. This level of uncertainty is obtained by applying Duncan's (1972) typology, based on the dynamism and complexity of the environment. To achieve this, in 2005, a sample of \\{SMEs\\} in the Canary Islands (Spain) was studied and the Rasch Rating Scale Model was applied together with non-parametric tests (Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney). The study concluded that the \\{SMEs\\} mainly perceived a stable environment. The \\{SMEs\\} that perceive greater complexity attach more importance to networks with customers or suppliers as a way to reduce it.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenObjetivo Cuantificar los niveles de exposicin del personal sanitario a frmacos citotxicos con el fin de establecer el nivel umbral de exposicin e implantar medidas para incrementar la proteccin y seguridad. Material y mtodo La cuantificacin de la contaminacin de 5-fluorouracilo, gemcitabina y ciclofosfamida se llev a cabo en las superficies de las siguientes reas: cabina de seguridad biolgica clase II tipo B3 (S1), mesa de preparacin de tratamientos en antecmara (S2) y mesa de la sala de administracin en hospital de da (S3). Se tomaron muestras de las superficies con un pao absorbente a tiempo t0, previo inicio de la sesin de trabajo, y t1, tras 3 h de trabajo mediante arrastre. En cada superficie se calcul el valor de la masa mediana respecto al valor basal y los percentiles 90, 75, 50 y 25 para cada citotxico en ?g/m2. Se comprob la normalidad de la distribucin con la prueba Shapiro-Wilk. El anlisis estadstico incluy las pruebas U de Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis y Wilcoxon. Se fij el nivel de significacin estadstica para valores de p Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon tests. Statistical significance was established for values of P<.05. Results We gathered a total of 90 samples, 30 from each of the studied work surfaces. The mean recorded mass of any of the cytotoxic compounds was higher for S1 and t1, with values of P=.017 and P=.004 respectively. The target value for each cytotoxic drug was established at the 25th percentile, where undetectable contamination values were obtained. Conclusions Introducing a continuous programme to monitor work surfaces for an array of cytotoxic compounds is fundamental in order to establish acceptable levels of residual contamination and reduce exposure in the workplace.

Desarrollo locomotor en pacientes con displasia del desarrollo de cadera y pie equino varo congnito que recibieron tratamiento ortopdico antes del ao de vida. Estudio prospectivo comparativo  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenObjetivos Diversas afecciones de presentacin temprana en la niez, como la displasia del desarrollo de la cadera (DDC) y el pie equino varo congnito (PEVAC), requieren de tratamiento ortopdico, limitando la movilidad activa de las extremidades inferiores por un perodo prolongado. El objetivo es evaluar el impacto sobre el desarrollo locomotor del tratamiento ortopdico en nios menores de un ao de vida. Pacientes y mtodos Se analiz una cohorte prospectiva de pacientes consecutivos con diagnostico de DDC (24 pacientes) y PEVAC (32 pacientes), tratados de manera ortopdica entre enero del 2007 y junio del 2009. Se utiliz como control un tercer grupo de 50 nios sanos. Se evaluaron el tiempo con ortesis y la edad al sentado, gateo y al comienzo de la marcha. Las comparaciones entre los 3 grupos fueron realizadas con una prueba de Kruskal-Wallis y entre s con una prueba de U de Mann-Whitney. Un valor de pKruskal-Wallis test and Mann-Whitney test. We chose a value of P<.05 as level of statistical significance. Results The analysis of independent samples showed that the mean age at which the patients began to sitwere similar: 6.12, 6.42 and 6.19 months, respectively (P=.249). The mean age for crawling was similar, although with a slight trend toward statistical significance: 8.84, 9.38 and 9.17 months, respectively (P=.08). The age at which they started walking was different between the three groups: 12.14, 13.21 and 12.41 months, respectively (P<.001). Conclusion Orthopedic treatment of DDH and clubfoot in children less than one year-old slightly slows down the course of normal locomotor development.

Effect of the shutdown of a large coal-fired power plant on ambient mercury Effect of the shutdown of a large coal-fired power plant on ambient mercury species Title Effect of the shutdown of a large coal-fired power plant on ambient mercury species Publication Type Journal Article LBNL Report Number LBNL-6097E Year of Publication 2013 Authors Wang, Yungang, Jiaoyan Huang, Philip K. Hopke, Oliver V. Rattigan, David C. Chalupa, Mark J. Utell, and Thomas M. Holsen Journal Chemosphere Volume 92 Issue 4 Pagination 360-367 Date Published 07/2013 Abstract In the spring of 2008, a 260MWe coal-fired power plant (CFPP) located in Rochester, New York was closed over a 4 month period. Using a 2-years data record, the impacts of the shutdown of the CFPP on nearby ambient concentrations of three Hg species were quantified. The arithmetic average ambient concentrations of gaseous elemental mercury (GEM), gaseous oxidized mercury (GOM), and particulate mercury (PBM) during December 2007-November 2009 were 1.6ng/m3, 5.1pg/m3, and 8.9pg/m3, respectively. The median concentrations of GEM, GOM, and PBM significantly decreased by 12%, 73%, and 50% after the CFPP closed (Mann-Whitney test, p<0.001). Positive Matrix Factorization (EPA PMF v4.1) identified six factors including O3-rich, traffic, gas phase oxidation, wood combustion, nucleation, and CFPP. When the CFPP was closed, median concentrations of GEM, GOM, and PBM apportioned to the CFPP factor significantly decreased by 25%, 74%, and 67%, respectively, compared to those measured when the CFPP was still in operation (Mann-Whitney test, p<0.001). Conditional probability function (CPF) analysis showed the greatest reduction in all three Hg species was associated with northwesterly winds pointing toward the CFPP. These changes were clearly attributable to the closure of the CFPP.

Yakima River Species Interactions Studies; Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project Monitoring and Evaluation, 2004-2005 Annual Report.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report is intended to satisfy two concurrent needs: (1) provide a contract deliverable from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) to the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), with emphasis on identification of salient results of value to ongoing Yakima/Klickitat Fisheries Project (YKFP) planning, and (2) summarize results of research that have broader scientific relevance. This is the thirteenth of a series of progress reports that address species interactions research and supplementation monitoring of fishes in response to supplementation of salmon and steelhead in the upper Yakima River basin (Hindman et al. 1991; McMichael et al. 1992; Pearsons et al. 1993; Pearsons et al. 1994; Pearsons et al. 1996; Pearsons et al. 1998, Pearsons et al. 1999, Pearsons et al. 2001a, Pearsons et al. 2001b, Pearsons et al. 2002, Pearsons et al. 2003, Pearsons et al. 2004). Journal articles and book chapters have also been published from our work (McMichael 1993; Martin et al. 1995; McMichael et al. 1997; McMichael and Pearsons 1998; McMichael et al. 1998; Pearsons and Fritts 1999; McMichael et al. 1999; McMichael et al. 1999; Pearsons and Hopley 1999; Ham and Pearsons 2000; Ham and Pearsons 2001; Amaral et al. 2001; McMichael and Pearsons 2001; Pearsons 2002, Fritts and Pearsons 2004, Pearsons et al. in press, Major et al. in press). This progress report summarizes data collected between January 1, 2004 and December 31, 2004. These data were compared to findings from previous years to identify general trends and make preliminary comparisons. Interactions between fish produced as part of the YKFP, termed target species or stocks, and other species or stocks (non-target taxa) may alter the population status of non-target species or stocks. This may occur through a variety of mechanisms, such as competition, predation, and interbreeding (Pearsons et al. 1994; Busack et al. 1997; Pearsons and Hopley 1999). Furthermore, the success of a supplementation program may be limited by strong ecological interactions such as predation or competition (Busack et al. 1997). Our work has adapted to new information needs as the YKFP has evolved. Initially, our work focused on interactions between anadromous steelhead and resident rainbow trout (for explanation see Pearsons et al. 1993), then interactions between spring chinook salmon and rainbow trout, and recently interactions between spring chinook salmon and highly valued non-target taxa (NTT; e.g., bull trout); and interactions between strong interactor taxa (e.g., those that may strongly influence the abundance of spring chinook salmon; e.g., smallmouth bass) and spring chinook salmon. The change in emphasis to spring chinook salmon has largely been influenced by the shift in the target species planned for supplementation (Bonneville Power Administration et al. 1996; Fast and Craig 1997). Originally, steelhead and spring chinook salmon were proposed to be supplemented simultaneously (Clune and Dauble 1991). However, due in part to the uncertainties associated with interactions between steelhead and rainbow trout, spring chinook and coho salmon were supplemented before steelhead. This redirection in the species to be supplemented has prompted us to prioritize interactions between spring chinook and rainbow trout, while beginning to investigate other ecological interactions of concern. Prefacility monitoring of variables such as rainbow trout density, distribution, and size structure was continued and monitoring of other NTT was initiated in 1997. This report is organized into five chapters that represent major topics associated with monitoring stewardship, utilization, and strong interactor taxa. Chapter 1 reports the results of non-target taxa monitoring after the sixth release of hatchery salmon smolts in the upper Yakima River Basin. Chapter 2 reports on the impacts of supplementation and reintroduction of salmon to trout. Chapter 2 was submitted as a manuscript to the North American Journal of Fisheries Management. Chapter 3 is an essay that describes the problems associated

Color Color Nature Bulletin No. 38 October 27, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation AUTUMN COLOR This is a colorful fall; one oil the best in recent years. Folks who get a thrill out of masses of color have been reveling in the rich pageantry of the woodlands. It started about six weeks ago when the sumacs turned magenta and crimson. Gradually the Smaller species of trees and then the larger ones began to "turn". The leaves of the hard maple became a brilliant orange-yellow, the red maples scarlet, the hickory and the ash a rich yellow, the oaks mingled red-and-green, deep red, or even purple. Only such trees as the elms and sycamores turned a nondescript brown. In the southeastern portion Or Cook County the yellow of a few sassafras and the peculiar scarlet of a few sour gum trees punctuate the landscape. Along the banks oi the upper Des Plaines River the hard maples created a fairyland of beauty.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist WILDLIFE IN CHICAGO Few people realize that there is enough native wildlife worth mentioning in roaring, jam-packed Chicago, nor that very much of it is left in its fringe of adjoining suburbs. Surprisingly, this is not the case. Just as rural people become accustomed to urban life, some wild birds and mammals have adjusted to city life and are holding their own. A few kinds seem to be more numerous in parts of metropolitan Chicago than they were in those same areas a hundred years ago. The white-tailed deer, long extinct in this part of Illinois, is on the increase in the Chicago region. In recent winters two of them, perhaps chased by dogs, were rescued from the ice on the lake front -- one at Jackson Park and the other in the Calumet region.

Ladybugs Ladybugs Nature Bulletin No. 82 September 7, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of conservation LADY-BUG. Gardeners have remarked this summer upon the unusual number of lady-bugs. This was largely due to the great quantity of aphids or plant- lice last year. Like all other animals, insects have enemies which normally tend to limit their numbers if man does not upset things. These enemies may be diseases, mites, reptiles, rodents, birds or other insects. As an insect becomes abundant its enemies, too, tend to become more numerous. These soon deplete their food supply and themselves decline in numbers, after which their prey increases again. And so it goes, in cycles. There are large numbers of insects of different kinds which prey on other insects. Cone group consists of parasites that live within or on a single "host" and gradually consume it. The other group surprises the predators which, as adults or larvae or both, kill and eat large numbers of their prey. Among the most beneficial of the predator insects are the "lady-bugs" or ladybird beetles: known to children because of the Old Mother Goose rhyme; praised and protected by the vegetable gardener, the farmer, the fruit grower and the forester.

Nocturnal Animals Nocturnal Animals Nature Bulletin No. 151 April 17, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation NOCTURNAL ANIMALS When the sun goes down and dusk steals over the land, the animals of the day grow drowsy and seek some sheltered spot to await another dawn. Birds slip quietly to their nests or favorite roosts. The chattering squirrel curls up in his hollow tree or a summer nest of leaves. Butterflies fold their wings and bees creep into their quiet hives. Bats and whip-poor-wills and nighthawks zigzag expertly through the air to feast on flying insects. Then darkness comes. Then the land becomes alive again as the animals of the night take over -- the hunted and the hunters. The cottontail rabbits come out to play and gorge themselves on fresh young clover and tender grass -- welcome food after nibbling all winter on the bark of hawthorn, willow, sumac and wild rose. Millions of mice scurry about. Muskrats emerge from the underwater entrances to their lodges and bank tunnels to swim and splash as they feed on tender shoots of cattails and sedges. Wild ducks and some of the shore birds feed regularly at night.

Fire Fire Nature Bulletin No. 51 Febraury 1, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation FIRE Most people firmly believe the ancient notion that the prairies and vacant lots should be burnt off "to make better grass." Many are doing so now. Boys who have seen their parents and neighbors kindling fires on vacant property frequently do likewise on the prairies. Recently there have been four fires in the forest preserves which spread from adjoining land. Burning does more harm than good. True, it gets rid of the old weed stalks and dried grass of last year, so that new grass shows green more quickly. But repeated burnings kill the good, nutritious grasses such as bluegrass, timothy and clover. The wildflowers disappear. All food and nesting cover for birds, rabbits and other wildlife is destroyed, just when they need it most. Thistles thrive. Only tough grasses of little value for pasture or hay, such as crabgrass and quackgrass, and the weeds survive.

Louis Agassiz Louis Agassiz Nature Bulletin No. 756 May 16, 1964 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor LOUIS AGASSIZ The father of natural science education in our modern schools was the great Swiss naturalist and teacher, Louis Agassiz. From 1848 until his death in 1873, he was the professor of zoology and geology in the Lawrence Scientific School at Harvard. There, he not only trained a generation of zoologists and geologists, several of whom become famous: he gave a new slant, new purpose, and a powerful push to scientific education in America -- especially the study of natural history. Agassiz was an inspiring teacher who preached and practiced a philosophy of education that was revolutionary in his day. He was passionately opposed to theories and conclusions obtained largely from books and attending lectures. Agassiz refused to be an oracle "imparting information" to his students. Instead, he required them to obtain it firsthand from specimens and their life histories. Thus, he made the study of natural science attractive and meaningful.

One -- Their History One -- Their History Nature Bulletin No. 710 March 23, 1963 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor THE PALOS PRESERVES - PART ONE : THEIR HISTORY . The Palos forest preserves now comprise approximately 13,750 acres of the most hilly, wooded and scenic parts of Cook county, and include almost 100 lakes, ponds and sloughs. They occupy 10,051 acres in Palos township. The remaining 3700 acres are situated in the adjoining townships of Orland, Lemont and Lyons. In 1850, when Cook county was organized into 27 townships -- now there are 38 -- one of them was called Trenton. After the first election its township board changed the name to Palos. Reputedly, that was suggested by Melanchon A. Powell, one of the earliest settlers and first postmaster of Palos (originally "Orange") because of a tradition that one of his ancestors had been a member of the crew on one of the ships commanded by Christopher Columbus when they sailed from Palos de Frontera in 1492. Palo, in Spanish, may mean a tall tree, the mast of a ship, or a promontory. Palos de Frontera was a seaport beneath a promontory on the Gulf of Cadiz, about 45 miles from Seville.

Fireflies Fireflies Nature Bulletin No. 27 August 11, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation FIREFLIES Fireflies, or lightning-bugs, were unusually late this year. Few were seen before July 4th and in some localities they are still scarce. The firefly is a beetle, of the family Lampyridae. The adults are short-lived and eat little or no food. They are nocturnal in habit, resting on the leaves cool, damp bushes during the day. The female lays a hundred or more eggs at the base of a plant in a damp, moist place, generally near a stream. The larvae hatch and live for one or two years in the soil. The firefly is much more efficient than man in producing a "cold light", containing no ultra violet rays, with a wavelength from 0.00051 to 0.00067 millimeters in length, pale yellowish or reddish green in color, with a light efficiency of 96%.. The ordinary incandescent light has an efficiency of roughly 10%, most of the energy being wasted as heat.

Bur Oak Bur Oak Nature Bulletin No. 708 March 9, 1963 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon. President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor THE BUR OAK The state tree of Illinois is the "native oak". It should be the Bur Oak. As Aldo Leopold discerned: "When school children vote on a state bird, flower, or tree, they are not making a decision; they are merely ratifying history". Ergo, when the first settlers gazed westward across the vast prairies of Illinois, bur oaks were the burly trees on knolls and ridges which stood like ships in a sea of grass. Those oak openings, as they are called, were remarkable features of the tall grass prairies in Indiana, Illinois, and the prairie peninsulas that extended northward into Michigan and Wisconsin. Many early travelers wrote lyrical descriptions of those park-like openings "without a twig of underbrush". . . "where deer grazed leisurely like sheep"...."so open that a cabriolet could have been driven through them for miles".

Dogwoods Dogwoods Nature Bulletin No. 490 April 20, 1957 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist THE DOGWOODS According to Christian legends the Flowering Dogwood was used to make Jesus' cross because, at that time, it grew as large and sturdy as an oak. During the crucifixion, sensing the dogwood's sadness at being put to such a cruel use, He promised that henceforth, it shall be slender, bent and twisted; never again to be used for a cross. Easter and spring both stand for the coming of new life. Our floral parade begins early with the bizarre fleshy bloom of the skunk cabbage and reaches a peak in early May. However, the flowering dogwood is lacking. It is native throughout most of the eastern half of the United States, but Chicago people must take week-end trips to downstate Illinois or Indiana to see it in bloom. There, on slopes and in woodlands, beneath the still leafless taller trees, its blossoms will flush the landscape like an untimely May snowstorm. A single one of its showy blooms is a dense head of tiny greenish flowers set in a white flower-like cup. What appear to be four broad petals with puckered notches at their tips are not true petals at all but the greatly expanded scales of the winter flower buds. In some of the eastern and southern states these may be pink or rose-colored.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist SCHOOL TRIPS & PROJECTS IN SPRINg Spring is the morning of the year when nature reawakens. The days become noticeably longer and warmer. We feel an urge to get out-of- doors and see green growing plants, early wildflowers, and swelling buds on trees and shrubs; see and hear birds returning from their winter homes; hear the mating songs of frogs and toads. The nearest forest preserve, park, meadow or hedgerow -- even a city street or weedy vacant lot -- will have a wealth of plant and animal life. March is a chancy month for field trips but spring can be perking in a classroom before many signs of it appear outdoors. One twig of a forsythia bush, placed in a bottle of water, will soon display its yellow flowers; willow and aspen twigs will develop fat fuzzy catkins; the end of branches from cottonwood, soft maple and elm trees will reveal how some of their winter buds produce flowers and others burst into leaves. The long reddish catkins on a male cottonwood are showy but the small flowers of a maple or an elm are no less beautiful, although seldom noticed on the trees.

Reverently and humbly I venture to explain some of the myths and misconceptions that have accumulated about the flowers mentioned in the Bible. It is a remarkable fact that, other than the blossoms on flowering shrubs and trees such as the almond, there are only three: the lily, the rose, and the camphire. Curiously, too, all three are mentioned in the Song of Solomon: "My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi. I am the rose of Sharon and the lily of the valleys . Thy plants are an orchard of pomegranates, with pleasant fruits; camphire, with spikenard, spikenard and saffron. The spikenard referred to is a Himalayan plant from whose roots was and is extracted a precious ointment and perfume. It is nothing like our American spikenard, a common woodland plant. Saffron, used in curry and as a yellow dye, is the product of several species of crocuses native in Greece and Asia Minor.

Fall Fruits Fall Fruits Nature Bulletin No 161-A September 19, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor EDIBLE FALL FRUITS Autumn is the favorite season for many people, and especially those who have the hobby of harvesting wild fruits for home use. In the forest preserves they, and you too, can have the fun of hunting, finding and gathering them. You can have the added satisfaction of making -- for enjoyment by your family and friends -- jellies, jam, preserves, pickles, and beverages that are "different". One of the most abundant, but least used of all wild fruits in the Chicago region are those of the hawthorns, We have perhaps 200 species, hybrids and varieties, most of them along woodland borders and in thickets that have taken over many old fields and clearings. Their fruits, called haws, vary widely in size and color when ripe. Most of them are small and many are dull red; some are yellow and some are spotted. Only a few bear the mealy, bright scarlet fruits, from 3/4 inch to more than an inch in diameter, which are most desirable and known as "red haws". Some folks, mostly boys, eat them raw. Others use them to make a unique jelly.

Prairie Chicken Prairie Chicken Nature Bulletin No. 99 January 18, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation THE PRAIRIE CHICKEN In late January the prairie chicken cocks begin to "boom". Feeble and infrequent at first, booming increases as winter merges into spring and continues until June. The cocks gather in groups, regularly, before sunrise and again at sunset, on open ridges or slight rises in the prairie. Year after year they come to the same locations where each male establishes a "territory" which he defends fiercely. Fights are frequent. As a prelude to booming, the cock runs forward a short distance, stops, stamps his feet rapidly and pivots in a half or full circle. As he dances, the two brilliant orange air sacs -- one on each side of his neck -- are inflated, his long horn-like neck feathers are erected, the fleshy orange eyebrows are also inflated and his tail spread fanwise, snaps with a loud click. Then comes the boom.

Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation CRICKETS The hero of Charles Dickens' story, "Cricket on the Hearth", was the straw-colored house or domestic cricket. Imported from England, we frequently find it in our homes and hear it chirping cheerily at night. Crickets avoid light. With their long powerful legs for leaping, they are hard to catch and can become a pest -- eating holes in carpets and clothing. Some folks think they bring good luck Some folks keep them as pets, in tiny cages, for their singing. The large black crickets found out-of-doors under stones or logs or boards, and the small brown crickets found in thick grass or under fallen leaves, are some of the many native species. So is the cave cricket, or camel cricket, that lives in caves. So are the mole crickets, with their board shovel-like forelegs, that live in burrows in the ground. So is the Snowy Tree Cricket, also called the Temperature Cricket because, if you count the number of chirps in 15 seconds and add about 38 or 39, the answer will be the temperature Fahrenheit -- "about" because some crickets chirp more rapidly at a given temperature than others do.

Corn Corn Nature Bulletin No. 118 May 31, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation CORN Corn, or maize, has never been found growing wild. Columbus found it being grown by the Carib Indians and called it " Mahiz". The Aztecs told Cortez it was a gift from their gods, but the Mayas and the Incas already had been growing corn for thousands of years. Teosinte, a coarse native Mexican grass, appears to be its closest relative and its origin was probably in Central or South America. Our first colonists planted seed obtained from the Indians and, "corn" being the English word for all grain, called this strange new plant "Indian corn". Without man' s help, corn soon would disappear. Each year the seed must be carefully selected, carefully planted, and the soil kept cultivated to remove competition from other plants. Modern scientific breeding has produced varieties remarkable for their rapid growth, uniform size and heavy yield.

Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation HANDAXES AND KNIVES IN THE FOREST PRESERVES Handaxes and hunting-knives may not be carried in the forest preserves. The rangers must confiscate them wherever found. This rule is necessary because so many people in Cook County use these tools to damage or destroy trees and shrubs. In a county of 4 million people, mostly city people ignorant of how to conduct themselves in the woods, it is unfortunately necessary to make such rules to protect these forest preserves so that they will remain wild, unspoiled and beautiful. A real woodsman knows that he should not cut down a young tree or sapling for firewood. Green wood will not burn. A real woodsman knows that he should not strip the bark from a tree because then that tree will die. He knows that if a notch or deep blaze is made through the rough, protecting, outer bark, then there is created a place where rot and destructive insects can enter to eventually kill that tree.

DDT DDT Nature Bulletin No. 31 September 8, 1945 - [edited April,1998] Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation DDT Large scale experiments are being conducted on selected areas scattered all over the United States and Canada. The U, S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the U. S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Entomology and Plant Quarantine of the Department of Agriculture, and the U. S. Public Health Service are among the agencies cooperating in these experiments. DDT is being applied in the form of dust, suspensions, solutions and emulsions, by means of airplanes, high-powered sprayers, knapsack sprayers, and hand atomizers. It is being tested against leaf-eaters, bark beetles, wood borers, termites, and a number of sucking insects, including mosquitoes and flies. The experiments indicate that DDT far surpasses any previous used substance for control of insects harmful to forests, orchards, gardens and man himself. Its remarkable lasting qualities, even after rains, the small amount required per acre, and its suitability to application by plane, would seem to make it the answer to most problems of control of harmful insects.

Snow Snow Nature Bulletin No. 588 January 23, 1960 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist SNOW Snow is one of nature's most remarkable phenomena and of incalculable benefit to mankind. It brings fun and adventure, beauty and tranquillity, to young and old. Like anything else, there can be too much of it -- especially in metropolitan areas -- but, fundamentally, snow is good for the land and in the final analysis we all depend upon the land. Farmers and gardeners dread a snowless period of bitter cold. They welcome snow because a thick porous blanket of it, having myriads of air spaces, is nature's best insulator for roots and bulbs in the ground. For example, one test revealed that when the air temperature at the surface of a deep snow was 27 below zero, the temperature of the soil at a depth of seven inches underground was 24 above zero -- an amazing difference of 51 degrees.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist COVERED BRIDGES Covered bridges have a peculiar fascination for most of us. W e wish they could talk. Many of them are truly historic landmarks. Each one is a unique and picturesque relic of the days when .America was a young country. As a locality became more thickly settled the people demanded roads, improved roads, with bridges across creeks and rivers where fords or ferries had been the only means of crossing. There were no steel mills. But there were skilled woodsmen and virgin forests with huge trees from which they could fashion timbers of any dimension and length desired. Equally important, in certain regions there were master builders: craftsmen with shrewd knowledge of stresses and strains in trusses and arches. That is why covered bridges were and are so numerous in Vermont, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. Lack of such men may explain the absence of those structures in Minnesota and other states where timber was plentiful.

Presently, our summer songbirds will appear and the ponds and marshes be repopulated by ducks and shore birds. Some birds, like the juncos and tree sparrows, resident here all winter, will leave for Canada or our northern states, in May, great flocks of warblers will arrive, tarry briefly, and pass on, not to be seen again until they migrate southward in autumn. The spectacular annual journeys of many kinds of birds, and their homing "instincts", have been a source of wonder since ancient times. In recent years, large-scale marking with small aluminum identification bands upon their legs, has yielded much information about birds their migration routes, speed of travel, summer and winter homes, length of life and life histories.

Cave Animals Cave Animals Nature Bulletin No. 95 December 14, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation CAVE ANIMALS Our Senior Naturalist, with a group of scientists exploring one of the big limestone quarries southwest of Chicago, found several dozen strange animals where a small underground stream pours from a seam in the rock wall. They were nearly an inch long, slender, with legs on both ends and snow white. That was a rare discovery because they were Blind Amphipods -- small members of the crayfish family that live their entire lives in secret subterranean waters. A large part of the United States is underlain by limestone, sometimes hundreds of feet thick, often close to the surface as it is here. Surface water gradually seeps down through crevices in this limestone and along horizontal seams, dissolving the rock to form channels that grow larger and larger. As the centuries pass, these form underground rivers and the caves so common in some parts of this country.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist SPRINGS Springs -- cold, clear springs bubbling from hillsides or welling up from secret depths -- played an important part in the settlement of these United States from the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and the Great Smokies in Tennessee to the Ozarks of Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas. Always more plentiful in mountainous and hilly country, they were much more numerous and vigorous in those days before the great forests were cut over or destroyed. Then, most of the rainfall was retained and sank into the ground. Springs are fed by ground water. An early settler, penetrating a frontier wilderness with his family and their meager possessions, traveled and searched until he found a suitable home-site. That was determined not only by the quality of the land and what brew on it but also by the availability of water and timber. Although some preferred to dig a well, fearful that the dreaded milk sickness and "the shakes" or ague might lurk in spring water, a favorite location was near some good "strong" spring.

A large chunk of red oak, for example, pops wide open at a single stroke of the ax. Sometimes the fresh surface exposes a cluster of hibernating Carpenter Ants stiff and numb with cold inside a network of frost-lined tunnels. Warmed by the sun or the heat from a campfire they slowly begin to move their legs and feebly creep away. In summer we see these carpenter ants prowling tree trunks and the forest floor in search of food. Occasionally, if we sit down on a fallen log or tap on a dead tree, dozens of them come rushing out with their antennae waving to see what is causing the disturbance. Less often, a colony is found enlarging its quarters. One ant after another runs out and drops a pellet of wood onto a pile of sawdust on the ground below, then hurries back inside for another load.

The reason, of course, is that they comprise our most diversified holdings as well as the largest, with vast unspoiled semi-wild interiors. Their central feature is the wide Sag valley. North of it and south of it the preserves are mostly hilly and wooded, with openings that were farmers' fields many years ago. Included are ravines, springs, brooks, creeks, scores of ponds and potholes, large sloughs and lakes, two old limestone quarries, and even a narrow rock-walled canyon. All of this is the result of a unique geological and glacial history.

Turtles Turtles Nature Bulletin No. 157 May 29, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation LAND TURTLES Turtles are four-legged reptiles that originated before the dinosaurs appeared, some 175 million years ago. The distinguishing feature of the turtle is its shell, varying in shape and markings with the different species: an arched upper shell grown fast to the backbone, and a flat lower shell grown fast to the breastbone, the two connected on either side by a bony bridge. In some species, like the box turtles, the lower shell is hinged, enabling the animal to completely conceal its head, tail and limbs by closing the two shells together. Most turtles live in water all or part of the time, but all of them lay their eggs on land, and neither the nest nor the young is attended by the parents. Each species has its own method of nest construction, using the hind legs to dig a hole in the ground, but the eggs are covered and left to be hatched by the heat of the sun. The eggs are relished by many animals such as skunks and squirrels; the young, before their armor hardens, are devoured by birds, mammals, fishes and other turtles.

Toad Toad Nature Bulletin No. 158 June 5, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE TOAD The toad, distinguished by its wide heavy body, dry warty skin and a large kidney-shaped gland on each shoulder, is a most interesting and valuable animal. There are many superstitions about this gentle harmless amphibian so loathed by many people. It is not evil or venomous; it does not "rain down" from the sky; it cannot exist for centuries sealed in the heart of a tree or solid rock; it does not cause warts. From those two big glands and from the "warts", which are also glands, a toad can secrete a milky fluid which is harmless to man but which makes it distasteful to most animals. However, they are eaten by most large snakes and by many hawks, owls, herons and bitterns. Because its food is chiefly insects and their larvae, of which it consumes great quantities, the toad is a valuable friend to the farmer and gardener even though it also eats spiders and earthworms.

Screech Owl Screech Owl Nature Bulletin No. 100 January 25, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation THE SCREECH OWL At the foot of a dead oak where we hoped to find some winter mushrooms beneath the grass and fallen leaves, we spied several pellets about the size and shape of the end of your thumb. They were clean and odorless, each containing the skull and bones of a mouse tightly wrapped in a layer of the animal's fur. Owls and hawks swallow their prey whole or in large pieces and later spit out the indigestible matter in the form of pellets. Up in this tree was a woodpecker hole from which the round unwinking yellow eyes of a screech owl glared at us. A screech owl, about the size of a robin but much chunkier, is our only small owl with ear tufts like "horns". They prey on mice, chipmunks and ground squirrels, fish, crayfish, amphibians, small snakes, angleworms, and large insects. When other food is scarce, and their fuzzy white young -- usually four in number -- require much food, they frequently kill birds but apparently not enough to seriously affect the bird population. No owl, of any species, should be killed.

The History of the Microscope

the Microscope the Microscope Nature Bulletin No. 506 November 9, 1957 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist THE HISTORY OF THE MICROSCOPE During that historic period known as the Renaissance, after the "dark" Middle Ages, there occurred the inventions of printing, gunpowder and the mariner's compass, followed by the discovery of America. Equally remarkable was the invention of the microscope: an instrument that enables the human eye, by means of a lens or combinations of lenses, to observe enlarged images of tiny objects. It made visible the fascinating details of worlds within worlds. Long before, in the hazy unrecorded past, someone picked up a piece of transparent crystal thicker in the middle than at the edges, looked through it, and discovered that it made things look larger. Someone also found that such a crystal would focus the sun's rays and set fire to a piece of parchment or cloth. Magnifiers and "burning glasses" are mentioned in the writings of Seneca and Pliny the Elder, Roman philosophers during the first century A. D., but apparently they were not used much until the invention of spectacles, toward the end of the 13th century. They were named lenses because they are shaped like the seeds of a lentil.

Dipper Ducks and Diving Ducks Dipper Ducks and Diving Ducks Nature Bulletin No. 692 November 3, 1962 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor DIPPER DUCKS AND DIVING DUCKS Almost all of the wild ducks native in North America fall naturally into two groups: the Surface-Feeding Ducks and the Diving Ducks. In addition there are three species of Mergansers or fish ducks, the unique little Ruddy Duck and, in Mexico, two long-legged, long-necked kinds misnamed Tree Ducks. The surface-feeding species seldom dive, even to escape danger. When alarmed they spring from the water with a strong upward bound and are gone. They prefer ponds, sloughs and rivers where, in shallow water, they can scoop up food with their broad strainer-like bills that have fine comb-like fringes along the edges, or up-end themselves and, with their tails in the air, dabble for it on the bottom. Consequently they are commonly called "dipper ducks", "dabblers", or "puddle ducks. .

Oaks Oaks Nature Bulletin No. 73 July 6, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation THE OAKS The oak is celebrated in history and fable. Great forests of oak once covered much of England and central Europe. The ancient Druids held the oak especially sacred and performed their mysterious rites in the depths of the oak forests. Our modern oaks, of which there are more than 275 species distributed over the world -- largely in temperate regions -- are descendants of prehistoric trees. Some 20 or 30 forms have been identified from fossils as existing during the Ice Age. The oaks dominate our upland woods in the Middle West. Of 54 species in the United States, Illinois has 19. Cook County has 9, of which only 6 are common: the white, the swamp white, the bur, the black, the red and Hill's black ( or northern pin oak). Less common are the true pin oak, the shingle oak and the chinquapin.

Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation OUR RIVER The people of Cook County are missing a bet. They are not using their DesPlaines River. The other day we took a boat trip down that river from Lake County to Lawndale Avenue in Summit. It being a week day, we saw few people other than an occasional fisherman or pairs of strolling boys. Except for a bridge now and then, there were no signs or sounds of civilization. Chicago might have been a thousand miles away. We rested. There was isolation. There was peace. Once in a while a heron flew ahead of us; or a squirrel scampered up a tree; once we saw a family of young muskrats playing around the entrance to their den in the bank; twice we saw and heard a wood duck; again and again big fish plowed ripples surging ahead of us. It was shady and cool and still beneath the arching trees. We thought of the centuries this river had traveled. We were babes nuzzling again at the breast of Mother Nature.

After a Storm After a Storm Nature Bulletin No. 47 January 5, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation AFTER A STORM At daybreak on Monday, December 24, a blinding blizzard raged. About eight o'clock the snow ceased. Immediately the woods and meadows became alive with hungry animals and birds. The rabbits came out of their snug hiding places to cruise the thickets, gnawing the bark of young trees and shrubs, or racing about for exercise and play. The squirrels came down from their den trees and zigzagged here and there, digging out acorns from beneath the snow. The killers of the foxes, mink and weasel -- came out hunting for mice and any luckless bird or animal they could surprise. Everywhere in the tall grass and weeds of the meadows, the field mice had made telltale holes from their runways up to the surface, for air. Flocks of song sparrows hopped about, jumping up to seize the choice weed seeds. Pheasants stalked along, eating seeds and hunting patches of burdock or nubbins left in cornfields, where they could get a real meal. The juncoes cleaned up what the pheasants wasted.

Bats are the only fur bearing animals that truly fly, and they've been doing it for at least 50 million years Twisting, looping and zig-zagging through the air, at dusk and dawn, they catch flying insects more skillfully than the swallow or the chimney swift. Each twist and turn means another insect caught, A bat can consume one-half its weight in insects in a single twilight. Harmful? No, We have one in Trailside Museum that likes to be handled and fed mealworms. They do not get in women's hair. They do not distribute our kind of bed bugs. They are not blind; even in daytime they see fairly well. But they can fly through timber or the narrow twisting passages of caves in total darkness because they have radar, Bats have large specialized ears, Their squeak is pitched so high that few people can hear it, As they fly they also make a supersonic squeak about 30 times per second and are guided by the echoes bouncing back from obstacles.

(Tennyson. Sixty years and more ago, May Day was an occasion for festivities and fun in many country towns. At daybreak on the first day of the fifth month we youngsters went "a-maying". We brought back freshly picked wildflowers and put them in little baskets which we hung on the front door knobs of our favorite people. If you were secretly sweet on some winsome lass she got a special basket, maybe with a bow of ribbons on the handle. In those days wildflowers were abundant and we did not know that it is wrong to pick them -- that because of such picking, year after year, most of them would gradually disappear. There was also a Queen of the May, one of the loveliest girls in town; and a Maypole, twined with ribbons and with ropes of flowers, around which we danced and sang at the ends of colored streamers from its top.

Thompson, Senior Naturalist BOWS AND ARROWS: PART ONE THE BOW Primitive man, although at different times in various parts of the world, seems to have passed through three stages of development. During what is called the Old Stone Age he discovered how to make and use fire but had only clubs, stones and crudely shaped axes as weapons. During the Middle Stone Age he invented the spear, perhaps a throwing stick to hurl it, and finally the bow and arrow. Then man became a match for the mammoth, mastodon, cave bear, saber-toothed tiger or any predator. Then he was able to kill his food at a distance, or from a hiding place, with less risk of his life Then, too, he was enabled to ambush an enemy instead of meeting him in desperate hand-to-hand conflict.

Blow Flies Blow Flies Nature Bulletin No. 76 July 27, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation BLOW FLIES The big flies you sometimes find buzzing loudly and crazily around in your basement, garage, barn, or even your living room, are not overgrown house flies. They are blow flies. Of the several species in this region the most common are the Blue Bottle Fly, Green Bottle Fly, Black Blow Fly and Screw-Worm Fly. Adult flies do not grow after they emerge from the pupa case. They lay small white or ivory-colored oblong eggs which hatch, in a day or two at ordinary temperatures, into maggots. These feed and grow and shed their skins several times before they form a brown pupa case shaped like a medicine capsule. Inside this case a transformation takes place which results grown fly. In the case of the blow flies the whole process, from egg to adult fly, takes from 14 to 18 days.

Prairie Prairie Nature Bulletin No. 30 September 1, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation THE PRAIRIE We call this the season of Purple-and-Gold. Particularly is this descriptive of those few remnants of native prairie that still persist. Just now they have a striking characteristic. There is a high level of yellow bloom, a low level of golden bloom and, rising above the lower level, a broad band of purple that thrills you with its vibrant beauty. The high level is made up of the flowers of Rosin-weed, the Compass Plant and the Prairie Dock. The low level is Goldenrod and Brown- eyed Susan. The purple band is Prairie Blazing Star. The prairie is ever-changing. Fifteen days ago the Yellow Coneflower was dominant, with the Prairie Bush-clover supplying low staccato dots of reddish purple. In July your eye was struck by magenta islands of Purple Coneflower, pink islands of Prairie Phlox, the deep orange of the Butterfly-weed, and rare daubs of the red of lilies.

711 March 30, 1963 711 March 30, 1963 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor THE ARUMS Two of our best-known spring wildflowers are the Skunk Cabbage and the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. They are members of the Arum family and have a curious structure characteristic of this interesting family. Instead of petals, there is a single enclosing sheath with a canopy-like top, called a "spathe". This encloses and protects a fleshy club-shaped spike called a "spadix". The spadix appears fuzzy because it is crowded with tiny flowers that have no petals and no sepals. The Arum family includes more than 1000 species -- most of them tropical; most of them having large coarsely-veined leaves and large fleshy rootstocks; most of them found in swamps, ponds, and moist habitats. Many have a bad smell, or a biting taste, or both. A cruel prank sometimes played on a child in the woods is to offer him a bite of Indian Turnip, another name for the Jack-in-the-Pulpit. The white starchy underground root has a pleasant taste, at first, but in a few moments his mouth and tongue begin to smart, and this burning sensation becomes an agonizing pain which lasts for many hours.

Do Animals Talk? Do Animals Talk? Nature Bulletin No. 635 April 1, 1961 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist DO ANIMALS TALK ? Amateur bird fans are not all bird watchers. Some of us are bird listeners. In the forest preserves and rural regions, the big black noisy crow is a continual challenge. At the first light of dawn an evenly spaced "caw, caw, caw" seems to say "Hello! Is anybody awake?" Soon it is answered by sleepy crow voices. They have food calls, assembly calls, alarm calls, courtship calls and a lot of squabbling over roosting spots as they settle down for the night. The adults are very quiet near the nest but the fledglings make loud gargling sounds as they are fed. The discovery of an owl or cat sets off a sort of mob hysteria. By hiding a microphone among a flock of crows it has been found that they also talk in whispers.

Houses Houses Nature Bulletin No. 620 December 3, 1960 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist SOD HOUSES In the 1860's and 70's, when pioneer settlers came to homestead free land on the vast lonely prairies of Kansas and Nebraska, they found a country that, except for fringes of cottonwoods and willows along the streams, was treeless. There was no rock and mighty little timber for building houses and barns. Lumber was very expensive and scarce. So was money. However, the prairies were thickly covered with short, drought- enduring buffalo and blue grama grasses. Some of the Indian tribes which not only hunted buffalo but also grew corn -- notably the Pawnee, Osage and Hidatsa -- had large earthlodges. They used sod in the walls and the conical or dome-like roofs had pole rafters covered with willow brush, slough hay, sod, and finally clay. So the homesteaders were inspired to build their homes with slabs of the remarkably thick and tough prairie sod: "Nebraska marble".

" Only a few feet above the level of Lake Michigan, the place was almost entirely surrounded by swamps and miles and miles of prairies that became nearly impassable after spring thaws and during periods of heavy rainfall. There were only two important routes that afforded access at all times. One was the Green Bay Trail, ancestor of North Clark St. in Chicago, Ridge Ave. in Evanston, and Green Bay Road north of that. The other, traveled by the soldiers coming from Detroit to build Fort Dearborn in 1803, used the Great Sauk Trail to La Porte, Indiana, then a trail northwesterly to what is now Michigan City, and the firm sands of the lake beach the rest of the way.

Lichens Lichens Nature Bulletin No. 131 November 15, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation LICHENS When winter comes with its fogs, rains, and melting snow, the lichens flourish. In the country we find them on the bark of trees, boulders and patches of barren earth, but rarely in cities because they are very sensitive to poisonous gases in the smoky air. In Iceland and Greenland, and the vast tundras of the arctics, they are the dominant forms of plant life. A lichen is the partnership of a colorless plant and a green one: a fungus and an alga. The two exchange food materials. Fungus has remarkable power to absorb and store moisture. The alga, using that water, and using carbon dioxide from the air, manufactures food. The fungus absorbs the excess food and produces an acid which eats into the earth or wood or rock upon which it grows, anchoring it firmly in place.

Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation TURKEYS George Washington, in the first year of his presidenoy, issued a proclamation recommending November 26, 1789, be kept as a day of national thanksgiving for the establishment of a form of government that made for safety and happiness. In 1863, Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation in which he "appointed and set aside" the last Thursday in November as a day of national thanksgiving "for the defense against unfriendly designs without and signal victories over the enemy who is of our own household. " Since then each president has observed this cufitom, varied only by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Some time in October or November 1621, by proclamation of Governor Bradford, the Pilgrims in Plymouth Colony celebrated their first official American harvest festival. They recorded that "our harvest heing gotten in, our Governor sent foure men on fowling so that we might after a more special manner rejoyce together after we had gathered the fruit of our labours. They foure in one day killed as much fowle as, with a little help besides, served the Company about a weeke." Apparently the "fowle" were mostly wild ducks and geese but they found also a "great store of Turkies" in the vicinity of Plymouth.

Some have "fly-away" seeds. Included are the dandelion, thistle, tumbleweed, cattail, clematis, and many trees. The cottonwood, sycamore, aspen, linden, ailanthus, maple, box elder, birch and the pines are all trees having seeds with wings or with "down", that are carried by winds. Certain aquatic plants have seeds that sink to bury themselves in.the mud beneath the water. Others have seeds that float and are distributed by the winds and currents that carry them away. Many plants "shoot" their seeds, the seed pods popping open with sufficient force to throw the seeds many feet away, Notable in this group are knotgrass, lady slippers, violets, vetches, jewel weed, witch- hazel, and Heavea, the Para rubber tree, The witch-hazel may shoot its seeds 30 or 40 feet.

Tracks in the Snow Tracks in the Snow Nature Bulletin No. 98 January 11, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation TRACKS IN THE SNOW Tracks in the snow tell fascinating stories of the secret lives of the wild animals that are abroad in wintertime -- stories of their search for food and the never-ending warfare between the hunter and the hunted. Walking through the woods, we came upon the trail of a red fox. The footprints of a fox are more pointed than those of a dog, more nearly in a straight line, and the hind foot is placed exactly on the print of the corresponding front foot. More-over, this fox had walked out across a meadow to a big ant hill on top of which he sat to listen and test the wind for scent. A dog will not do that. Later, back in the woods, he had jumped on a fallen tree and trotted along its length. A dog will not do that, either. The fox was traveling leisurely, pausing here and there to sniff at tufts of grass and other possible hiding places for mice.

Japanese Beetle Japanese Beetle Nature Bulletin No. 579 November 7, 1959 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist THE JAPANESE BEETLE The deadly warfare between mankind and the insects never ends. Every minute of the day and night, billions of them are attacking our crops, orchards, forests and grasslands. They attack our homes, gardens, and even ourselves. Of those that were inadvertently brought to the United States from foreign countries, one of the most destructive is the Japanese Beetle. This pest was discovered in a nursery near Riverton, New Jersey, in 1916. Evidently some of its grubs -- the larvae-- had arrived a few years earlier in earth around the roots of plants imported from Japan. Over there, native parasites keep this beetle under control. Here, with none of those natural enemies, it multiplied and spread rapidly. Also, before we established stringent preventive measures, it was widely distributed in shipments of nursery and greenhouse plants. Now it hitchhikes on railroad trains and airplanes. Except northern New England, all but three states east of the Great Plains are infested by the Japanese beetle.

Ferns Ferns Nature Bulletin No. 60 April 6, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation FERNS Millions of years ago, in the Carboniferous Age, there were innumerable kinds of ferns and mosses. The giant tree ferns formed vast forests covering most of the earth and it is their remains that largely form our coal deposits. Of the 4,599 species of fern plants in the world today, only 26 are found in the Chicago region, principally because of the lack of rocky cliffs and ravines. Only a few are common The best places to see and study ferns are in the Fern Grotto of the Garfield Park Conservatory and at Morton Arboretum. In olden times ferns were feared. They had no visible seeds yet, they sprang up abundantly. The belief was that there must be invisible seeds that some people, and witches, put these seeds in their shoes and became invisible. Midsummer's night, June 21, was a witches' night when the ferns shed their seeds, so everybody cowered indoors. No wonder! Julius Caesar in 58 A. D. found that the Druid priest s in England made human sacrifices of people caught out after dark, burning them alive in large wicker baskets.

Bumble Bees Bumble Bees Nature Bulletin No. 65 May 11, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation BUMBLE BEES Walking through the fields in early spring, occasionally you will see a big bumblebee flying slowly and very low. That is a queen, only the queens survive from last year' s colonies. For six or more months she has hibernated in the ground, alone and without food. Now she is sipping nectar from the early flowers and accumulating their pollen on her hairy body. From time to time she will comb this pollen into "baskets" on her hind legs. When her hunger is satisfied and the pollen baskets are full, she searches for a suitable nesting place in the ground -- frequently the abandoned den of a field mouse. There she mixes the pollen with nectar into a little loaf of beebread. and on it she lays a few eggs which she covers with wax secreted from her abdomen. She also makes a thimble- like pot which she fills with honey. Then she broods over the eggs, meanwhile feeding on the honey.

Flakes Flakes Nature Bulletin No. 48 January 12, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation SNOW FLAKES "Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow?" So, according to Moses, God challenged Job to answer. Have YOU ? Some day examine the snow crystals that fall upon your coat sleeve. Use a magnifying glass. Do not touch or breathe upon them, for then they will disappear into a smudge of scattered fragments or a droplet of mist. Each one is a gem of delicate, lace-like symmetry, each one hexagonal and each one perfect, yet each one of a different intricate design. W. A. Bentley, of Jericho, Vermont, made micro-photographs of 4800 snow crystals, no two of which are alike. If they fall from high, very cold clouds, they are tiny and either six- sided columns or three-sided plates. If they fall from low, comparatively warm clouds then they are larger -- perhaps as much as one-half inch in diameter -- and several are apt to be combined into one big flake. The individual crystal will be either a six-pointed star, or a solid hexagon with six identical inlaid designs, or a combination of the two.

Pollen Pollen Nature Bulletin No. 80 August 24, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation POLLEN From mid-August until early frost, people are "pollen-conscious" -- particularly those who suffer with hay fever. Millions of flowers are in bloom, including the ragweeds which are heavy producers of pollen. Hay fever is an "allergy" or protein sensitivity to this pollen, carried scores or even hundreds of miles by the wind, which sticks to the thin moist membranes of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. Most plants, including trees, have flowers. The stamens of a flower are covered with fine yellow grains called pollen. If there is to be fertilization, these grains must be transferred to the pistil in which the seeds are formed. Some plants, such as peas and beans, are self- fertilized but most kinds are cross-fertilized: the pollen being carried from one plant to another by wind or on the bodies of insects attracted to them by the nectar in the flowers. Under a microscope the pollen grains of one species are distinctively different from those of another in size, shape, markings and color.

Love 'em and Leave 'em Love 'em and Leave 'em Nature Bulletin No. 113 April 26, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation LOVE'EM AND LEAVE 'EM. Two of the earliest and most interesting wildflowers are the bloodroot and the Dutchman's breeches. The few places where they can be found in Cook County are on wooded slopes with moist rich soil, usually in a ravine. Dutchman's breeches seems to prefer a slope facing north or east, and with it you will also find bloodroot. Both like partial shade, but bloodroot frequently grows where Dutchman's breeches do not. The bloodroot blooms first. The flower stalk first appears with a leaf tightly wrapped around it below the large bud, like a green pencil. On a warm sunny day the bud unfolds into a big white flower with eight or more petals and bright yellow stamens at the center. On a cold cloudy day it will fold up again. The leaves are big and broad, deeply lobed, with a network of veins. The plant gets its name from the thick fleshy horizontal root which, when cut, bleeds a bright-red acrid juice used by the Indians for war paint and by the pioneers for dyes and cough syrup.

We learned that in some schools last year, these weekly nature bulletins did not reach the science or biology teachers; in some they were not posted on any bulletin board, thus defeating their purpose. Four copies are sent to each elementary school in Chicago, and 9iX copies to each high school. We earnestly request that one or more copies be posted for one week on the appropriate bulletin boards, after which they be transmitted to the science or biology teachers for their use. POISON IVY Bulletin No. 26, dated August 4, stated that some protection against poison ivy could be obtained by rubbing the legs, arms, face and hands with a pasty lather of strong, brown laundry soap, allowed to dry on the skin. And that, as soon as possible after contact, the exposed skin should be washed with the same soap.

Portage Portage Nature Bulletin No. 58 March 23, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE PORTAGE Chicagoland has been millions of years in the making. But for 25,000 years it has been certain that this would be the crossroads for any great civilization on this continent and one of the major metropolitan centers of the world. Even the prehistoric mound-building Indians of the south and those of the north who built effigy mounds, met here to trade for copper. Later the Sioux, the Iroquois, the Illini, the western Algonquins which included the Potawatomi, and other once-powerful Indian rations paid tribute to the strategic Importance of this region with their dead. Finally, in the 1600's, came the white man. Here he discovered a portage across the low continental divide between Lake Michigan and the DesPlaines River, between the watershed of the Great Lakes emptying into the Atlantic Ocean and the watershed of the Mississippi emptying into the Gulf of Mexico.

Hawthorns and Crabapples Hawthorns and Crabapples Nature Bulletin No. 153 May 1, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt of Conservation HAWTHORNS AND CRABAPPLES The wild crabapple and the hawthorn are small trees; pioneers of the open woodlands, forest edges, sunny pastures, roadsides and fence rows. One of the peculiarities of the Chicago region is the manner in which the hawthorns, their seeds distributed largely by birds, will march across abandoned fields and take possession. Undisturbed by ax or fire, in twenty years there will be an almost impenetrable thicket from 10 to 20 feet in height. Crabapples and some species of hawthorns look much alike but the leaves are different and the crab has no thorns on its twigs. Its fragrant 5-petalled blossoms are pink or rose-tinged, and its fruit is a small greenish sour apple. The hawthorns have sharp thorns, white 5- petalled blossoms with a rather unpleasant fragrance, and its fruits, or "haws", are small, round, mealy-fleshed and varying In color from brilliant scarlet to dull dotted red or yellow -- according to the species.

Walks Walks Nature Bulletin No. 111 April 12, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation SPRING WALKS Spring is here. Get out into the forest preserves and enjoy it. Wild ducks are stopping on their northward night to rest and feed in the ponds and sloughs. You will hear the shrill singing of the spring peeper and cricket frogs. The robins, bluebirds, meadow larks, flickers and redwing blackbirds are here, and every day new birds appear. By the middle of April, some of the early wildflowers should be blooming on sunny slopes; by May the woodlands will be carpeted with blossoms. Wear stout walking shoes and heavy socks without holes or wrinkles. Wear old clothing but not too much, the outer garments preferably of hard smooth cloth, such as khaki or denim, that last year's burs and weed seeds can't cling to. Don't load yourself with equipment. Travel light. If you have a small knapsack, all right.

Crabapples Crabapples Nature Bulletin No. 754 May 2, 1964 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor CRABAPPLES When the wild crabapples and the hawthorns bloom in May, and dense thickets of them are covered with showy blossoms, then your forest preserves provide some breath-taking spectacles along the highways and for those who travel the trails. The redbud and the flowering dogwood that adorn the woodlands of central and southern Illinois in spring are not native in Cook County but our crabs and haws more than make up for them. The wild crabapples and the hawthorns are small thorny trees abundant along woodland borders, the trails, and in abandoned fields, Their fruits are eaten by birds and mammals which spread the undigested seeds. As a result, from a wood's edge they invade an open area and progress until, if not kept in check by mowers or axes and grub hoes, they form almost impenetrable thickets and -especially the hawthorns -- take complete possession.

Hackberry Hackberry Nature Bulletin No. 63 April 27, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE HACKBERRY The hackberry is the "unknown" tree. Most people never heard of it many mistake it for an elm, which it resembles. However, it has a distinctive bark, usually ashy gray, with rough warts and ridges. On many hackberries, mostly near the tips of the branches, there will be thick clusters of small twigs, resembling mistletoe from a distance, called "witches' brooms". These are not a natural growth, as many think, but are caused by a fungous infection. They do not hurt the tree seriously nor detract from its appearance, and more hackberries should be planted as ornamental shade trees instead of elms. They are hardy, grow well even in unfavorable conditions of soil and moisture, and are resistant to diseases and insect pests. Our elms, on the other hand, are dying by the hundreds in some localities -- in the east from Dutch elm disease; in the middle west from a virus disease for which no cure has been found.

Try to pick up one of these long snake-like creatures with its slick slimy skin, and you will appreciate the expressions: "slippery as an eel" and "squirms like an eel". It is a startling experience to catch one on a hook when fishing, especially at night. They have a slender conical head with a large mouth lined with hundreds of small sharp teeth. There is one pair of small fins just back of the head, and a single long fin which, starting a few inches behind the head, runs down the back, around the tail and half-way back on the underside. The color is olive or brownish green above and lighter below. The skin has a faint cross-hatched pattern due to rows of tiny scales imbedded in it.

English Sparrow English Sparrow Nature Bulletin No. 139 January 24, 1948 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE ENGLISH SPARROW The first bird a child sees, most places in the civilized world, is likely to be an English sparrow. In the cities, towns and country, the sparrow is a familiar part of everyday life. Like the cockroach, the rat, the house mouse and the house fly, the English sparrow has followed man over most of the earth, adjusting itself to different climates, foods, enemies and nesting places. Everybody thinks he "knows" the English sparrow. Yet this bird -- common as dirt, unloved and neglected -- is more of a world citizen than most birds and less studied than many rarer birds. It has so few distinctive markings that it is hard to describe, particularly the female, and may fool even skilled bird fans. It is of average size, average shape, average color, and has an average chirp. Furthermore, it is not a sparrow but one of the weaver finches a group of birds that build nests with openings in the side. Moreover, they are not particularly English, being native to Europe, Asia and North Africa, it is the " sparrow" mentioned in the Bible.

Skokie Lagoons Skokie Lagoons Nature Bulletin No. 646 September 9, 1961 Forest Preserve District of Cook County John J. Duffy, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist THE SKOKIE LAGOONS The Skokie Lagoons and their surroundings comprise a remarkable development of which we in the Forest Preserve District are extremely proud. They lie in the valley west of three north shore suburbs -- Wilmette, Winnetka and Glencoe -- between Willow Road and Dundee Road. They fulfill a dream of many people for many years: the transformation of a great marsh, ruined by drainage ditches, into an area as notable for its scenic beauty as for the recreation it provides. The Skokie valley lies between two broad ridges of glacial drift. Originally, the southern portion was an elongated shallow bay of ancient Lake Chicago when that ancestor of Lake Michigan was at its highest level. As the lake level dropped the bay became a marsh. Into and out of it flowed a stream, now called the Skokie River or East Fork, that drained a watershed extending northward beyond Waukegan. Emerging, its course was deflected westward by a long sand bar until, joined by the Middle Fork, they could turn southward and, joined by the West Fork, form the North Branch of the Chicago River.

Pheasants Pheasants Nature Bulletin No. 59 March 30, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation PHEASANTS The cock pheasants are crowing. From daybreak until midmorning, and sometimes in the evening, they may be heard in the forest preserves. During the winter they congregated in small bands, the hens generally separate from the cocks. Now the bands are breaking up and each cock selects a "crowing area" of from 5 to 60 acres which he defends by fighting off other cocks. He attracts hens to his area by lusty crowing. When one appears he clucks and coaxes, picking out choice bits of food for her. Then he begins to strut his stuff, erecting his ear-tufts and preening his gorgeous plumage, walking around with stiff arrogant steps and an exaggerated bobbing motion. If a successful fighter, he may acquire and hold a harem of as many as 8 hens which he protects until the end of the nesting season. If repeatedly whipped, he may become a wandering bachelor. Exit crowing.

Bees Bees Nature Bulletin No. 13 May 5, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation BEES Last week, in a big hollow tree that had been blown down, we found a squirrel's den, a screech owl's nest, and the comb of a hive of honey- bees. There are many such bee-trees in the forest preserves. They may be located by following the flight of the bees because once it has taken on its load of pollen and honey, a bee returns to the hive in a straight "bee-line. "Dr. David H. Thompson tells of a big elm in Indiana that yielded 350 pounds of honey. Honey-bees are the original communists. Like the bumblebee, the wasp and the ant, they live in large colonies (sometimes 50,000 individuals), and are called social insects. They live in a commune where the citizens govern, where the many kings (drones) are powerless, and where the one queen works as hard as any of her subjects and longer. They have an elaborate caste system, with specific tasks for certain classes of workers.

Poinsettia -- The Christmas Plant Poinsettia -- The Christmas Plant Nature Bulletin No. 699 December 22, 1962 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor POINSETTIA -- THE CHRISTMAS PLANT Christmas is a day of family gatherings. In each home they have their own traditional customs. Some of us cherish those that are peculiar to the region where we were children, or the land from whence our forefathers came. Most of us have also adopted customs -- such as decorating with holly and mistletoe -- that stem from ancient pagan ceremonies or festivals but have lost their original significance. There are many myths and legends about the origin of our Yuletide customs. (See Bulletins No. 135, 173, 211, 326 and 475). In this country most families have a Christmas tree, a custom that was introduced from Germany by Hessian troops in the British army during the Revolutionary War. It prevails in Britain and most of northern Europe but is unusual in Italy, Spain and Latin America. There, the symbol of Christmas and heart of the celebration in a home is not an Evergreen tree but a miniature reproduction of the stable and manger where Christ was born.

Columbus Day Columbus Day Nature Bulletin No. 651 Oct6ober 14, 1961 Forest Preserve District of Cook County John J. Duffy, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor David H. Thompson, Senior Naturalist COLUMBUS DAY October 12th, 1492, was a great turning point in history. On that day Christopher Columbus, with 87 men in three small sailing vessels, sighted the low hills of a little island in the West Indies which he named San Salvador. Although he made three more voyages across the Atlantic he never realized that, instead of a route to the Orient, he had discovered a whole New World. With favorable winds they had sailed westward from the Canary Islands for 33 days and nights without sighting land. As they ran before the wind day after day into unknown seas the crews began to grumble that they would starve before they could make their way back to Spain. On the 6th day a brilliant meteor was an ill omen to the superstitious sailors. To quiet their fears somewhat, Columbus kept two ship's logs: a private record of his own showing the true distances traveled, and a second one -- for the crew -- in which each day's run was reduced.

Butchering Day on the Farm Butchering Day on the Farm Nature Bulletin No. 734 November 30, 1963 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor BUTCHERING DAY ON THE FARM In the old days, on a farm, we seldom had much money but we had a lot of fun. At threshing time, for instance, horseplay and fun erupted amidst sweaty spells of hard work. Another big event in farm life when neighbors got together, worked hard and had fun, was butchering day. Most of us butchered at least twice during winter. The number of times and the number of hogs depended upon the size of each family. We ate pork three times a day, six days a week, and chicken on Sunday. Beef steaks and roasts were rare treats enjoyed when we ate with friends or relatives in town. We had no refrigeration, no way to keep a side of beef; whereas hog meat could be smoked, "salted down", pickled, or preserved in big jars of lard.

USING RECENT ADVANCES IN 2ND SEISMIC TECHNOLOGY AND SURFACE GEOCHEMISTRY TO ECONOMICALLY REDEVELOP A SHALLOW SHELF CARBONATE RESERVOIR: VERNON FIELD, ISABELLA COUNTY, MI.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Three horizontal wells have been completed (St. Springdale & Trezil 9-15 HD, St. Springdale 13-14 HD, St. Springdale & Stedronsky 10-15 HD) and three more wells were spudded (St. Springdale & CSX 2-22 HD, St. Springdale & Mann 9-21 HD and St. Springdale 7-22 HD) in the Springdale play this past reporting period. All are horizontal wells in the Brown Niagaran. This brings the total wells in the play to 12 with seven wells contributing to a total daily production exceeding 350 bbls/day. Data from these wells has been converted from drillers logs (footage calls) and converted to Michigan GeoRef coordinates and plotted. The Gamma Ray data along the well bore was available since it was used to steer the tool during drilling and this data was superimposed on the well trajectories in an effort to help distinguish pay zones from unproductive rock. One new geochemical survey was conducted over the projected surface path of the State Springdale & Stedronsky 14-15 HD and a final project survey was planned over one of the unsurveyed wells. This will bring the total surveyed wells to five and should provide enough data to determine if the idea of only sampling along the well bore is a sound strategy.

On geometry influence on the behavior of a quantum mechanical scalar particle with intrinsic structure in external magnetic and electric fields  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Relativistic theory of the Cox's scalar not point-like particle with intrinsic structure is developed on the background of arbitrary curved space-time. It is shown that in the most general form, the extended Proca-like tensor first order system of equations contains non minimal interaction terms through electromagnetic tensor F_{\\alpha \\beta} and Ricci tensor R_{\\alpha \\beta}. In relativistic Cox's theory, the limiting procedure to non-relativistic approximation is performed in a special class of curved space-time models. This theory is specified in simple geometrical backgrounds: Euclid's, Lobachevsky's, and Rie\\-mann's. Wave equation for the Cox's particle is solved exactly in presence of external uniform magnetic and electric fields in the case of Minkowski space. Non-trivial additional structure of the particle modifies the frequency of a quantum oscillator arising effectively in presence if external magnetic field. Extension of these problems to the case of the hyperbolic Lobachevsky space is examined. In presence of the magnetic field, the quantum problem in radial variable has been solved exactly; the quantum motion in z-direction is described by 1-dimensional Schr\\"{o}dinger-like equation in an effective potential which turns out to be too difficult for analytical treatment. In the presence of electric field, the situation is similar. The same analysis has been performed for spherical Riemann space model.

Hydraulic and Clean-in-Place Evaluations for a 12.5-cm Annular Centrifugal Contactor at INL  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Hydraulic and Clean-in-Place Evaluations for a 12.5 cm Annular Centrifugal Contactor at the INL Troy G. Garn, Dave H. Meikrantz, Nick R. Mann, Jack D. Law, Terry A. Todd Idaho National Laboratory Commercially available, Annular Centrifugal Contactors (ACC) are currently being evaluated for processing dissolved nuclear fuel solutions to selectively partition integrated elements using solvent extraction technologies. These evaluations include hydraulic and clean-in-place (CIP) testing of a commercially available 12.5 cm unit. Data from these evaluations is used to support design of future nuclear fuel reprocessing facilities. Hydraulic testing provides contactor throughput performance data on two-phase systems for a wide range of operating conditions. Hydraulic testing results on a simple two-phase oil and water system followed by a 30 % Tributyl phosphate in N-dodecane / nitric acid pair are reported. Maximum total throughputs for this size contactor ranged from 20 to 32 liters per minute without significant other phase carryover. A relatively new contactor design enhancement providing Clean-in-Place capability for ACCs was also investigated. Spray nozzles installed into the central rotor shaft allow the rotor internals to be cleaned, offline. Testing of the solids capture of a diatomaceous earth/water slurry feed followed by CIP testing was performed. Solids capture efficiencies of >95% were observed for all tests and short cold water cleaning pulses proved successful at removing solids from the rotor.

Interference Effects in Leptonic Decays  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

It is proven that in any leptonic decay experiment in which the lepton masses and charges may be neglected, and in which no pseudoscalar correlations are measured, all VA interference terms will be antisymmetric under exchange of the two leptons, while the pure V and A terms will be symmetric. If the experiment measures a pseudoscalar correlation, these conclusions are reversed. Even if the lepton masses cannot be ignored (e.g., for ?0??-+?+p, or low-energy ? decay) it is still true that no VA interference may appear when scalars are measured, and only VA interference may contribute when pseudoscalars are measured, providing that the lepton spins and momenta are not directly observed. Thus experiments can be devised that involve no interference effects, or only interference effects. This theorem holds independently of the strangeness change, spin change, energy transfer, or of any particular assumptions about the form of the V and A currents. It proves most useful when it is difficult or tedious to calculate transition rates directly. Applications are discussed, including possible tests of the Feynman-Gell-Mann theory in nonunique forbidden ? decay, of the nature of the leptonic ?0 and K0 decay interaction, and of the charge symmetry properties of weak interactions.

Perceived environmental uncertainty and strategic alliances in small and medium-sized enterprises  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This study analyses the importance that small and medium-sized enterprises attach to forming strategic alliances according to the environmental uncertainty they perceive. The uncertainty is obtained by applying Duncan's (1972) typology, combining environmental dynamism and complexity. A sample of small and medium-sized enterprises from the Canary Islands (Spain) was studied during 2005, and the Rasch methodology was applied together with non-parametric tests (Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney). The conclusion reached is that the greater the uncertainty perceived, the greater the importance small and medium-sized enterprises attach to strategic alliances. Furthermore, the group of small and medium-sized enterprises that perceive their environment as being highly uncertain and that attach more importance to forming strategic alliances are characterised by being larger than other small and medium-sized enterprises. This study makes an important contribution by considering the perceptions of managers of small and medium-sized enterprises as key determining factors in understanding these firms' strategic processes. This contribution is reinforced through the use of the Rasch methodology.

A Strategy to Conduct an Analysis of the Long-Term Performance of Low-Activity Waste Glass in a Shallow Subsurface Disposal System at Hanford  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The federal facilities located on the Hanford Site in southeastern Washington State have been used extensively by the U.S. government to produce nuclear materials for the U.S. strategic defense arsenal. Currently, the Hanford Site is under the stewardship of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Environmental Management (EM). A large inventory of radioactive and mixed waste resulting from the production of nuclear materials has accumulated, mainly in 177 underground single- and double-shell tanks located in the central plateau of the Hanford Site (Mann et al., 2001). The DOE-EM Office of River Protection (ORP) is proceeding with plans to immobilize and permanently dispose of the low-activity waste (LAW) fraction onsite in a shallow subsurface disposal facility (the Integrated Disposal Facility [IDF]). Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) was contracted to provide the technical basis for estimating radionuclide release from the engineered portion of the IDF (the source term) as part of an immobilized low-activity waste (ILAW) glass testing program to support future IDF performance assessments (PAs).

The Two-Loop Scale Dependence of the Static QCD Potential including Quark Masses  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The interaction potential V(Q{sup 2}) between static test charges can be used to define an effective charge {alpha}{sub V}(Q{sup 2}) and a physically-based renormalization scheme for quantum chromodynamics and other gauge theories. In this paper we use recent results for the finite-mass fermionic corrections to the heavy-quark potential at two-loops to derive the next-to-leading order term for the Gell Mann-Low function of the V-scheme. The resulting effective number of flavors N{sub F}(Q{sup 2}/m{sup 2}) in the {alpha}{sub V} scheme is determined as a gauge-independent and analytic function of the ratio of the momentum transfer to the quark pole mass. The results give automatic decoupling of heavy quarks and are independent of the renormalization procedure. Commensurate scale relations then provide the next-to-leading order connection between all perturbatively calculable observables to the analytic and gauge-invariant {alpha}{sub V} scheme without any scale ambiguity and a well defined number of active flavors. The inclusion of the finite quark mass effects in the running of the coupling is compared with the standard treatment of finite quark mass effects in the {ovr MS} scheme.

Consistent Quantum Reasoning  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Precise rules are developed in order to formalize the reasoning processes involved in standard non-relativistic quantum mechanics, with the help of analogies from classical physics. A classical or quantum description of a mechanical system involves a {\\it framework}, often chosen implicitly, and a {\\it statement} or assertion about the system which is either true or false within the framework with which it is associated. Quantum descriptions are no less ``objective'' than their classical counterparts, but differ from the latter in the following respects: (i) The framework employs a Hilbert space rather than a classical phase space. (ii) The rules for constructing meaningful statements require that the associated projectors commute with each other and, in the case of time-dependent quantum histories, that consistency conditions be satisfied. (iii) There are incompatible frameworks which cannot be combined, either in constructing descriptions or in making logical inferences about them, even though any one of these frameworks may be used separately for describing a particular physical system. A new type of ``generalized history'' is introduced which extends previous proposals by Omn\\`es, and Gell-Mann and Hartle, and a corresponding consistency condition which does not involve density matrices or single out a direction of time. Applications which illustrate the formalism include: measurements of spin, two-slit diffraction, and the emergence of the classical world from a fully quantum description.

Aesthetic Evaluation Differences between two Interrelated Disciplines: A Comparative Study on Architecture and Civil Engineering Students  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The study presented in this paper aims to discuss the need and value of interdisciplinary collaboration between architecture and civil engineering students while executing the differences and similarities between their aesthetic evaluations and visual preferences. A research was conducted to evaluate and compare the aesthetic evaluations of architecture and civil engineering students through selected architectural buildings. It is hypothesised that there would be a difference between the two groups evaluations and descriptions of the visual attributes. Photographs of 6 different buildings were chosen which had different characteristics related with their structure, form and context; and a questionnaire was designed. 35 architecture and 30 civil engineering students were asked to describe the selected buildings. A Visual Evaluation Test, which included photographs of the selected buildings was used within the questionnaire. Additionally, the participants were asked to rank 6 buildings due to their aesthetic preferences. Data was statistically analysed through semantic differential scales, and Mann Whitney U Test. Results from the two groups of respondents had some similarities and differences. Despite the two different groups described the settings with similar adjectives, they gave different responses on choosing the buildings as like or dislike. Besides, the two groups responses to the questions which they ranked the buildings due to their aesthetic preferences differed substantially. In relation with the findings, the educational processes of two disciplines were discussed and some suggestions were given.

Some Comments on the Decays of eta (550)  

DOE R&D Accomplishments [OSTI]

Various decay modes of the {eta}(500) are discussed. The relations, through SU{sub 3} and the Gell-Mann, Sharp, Wagner model, between the {eta}-decay modes and the modes {eta} {yields} {pi}{pi}{gamma), {pi}{sup 0} {yields} {gamma}{gamma} are investigated taking into account {eta}-{eta}{sup *} mixing. The present experimental values for the neutral branching ratios plus the shape of the {eta} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} Dalitz plot are shown to require a 25% {vert_bar}{Delta}{rvec I}{vert_bar} = 3 contribution to the {eta} {yields} 3{pi} amplitude. The connection between a possible charge asymmetry in {eta} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} and the branching ratio {Gamma}{sub {eta} {yields} {pi}{sup 0}e{sup +}e{sup {minus}}}/{Gamma}{sub {eta}}{sup all} is investigated in the framework of a model proposed earlier by several authors. It is shown that there is no conflict between the existing data and this model. The Dalitz plot distribution of {eta} {yields} {pi}{sup +}{pi}{sup {minus}}{pi}{sup 0} is discussed under various assumptions about the properties of the interaction responsible for the decay.

Oxygen consumption and peak heart rate in stroke patients during the completion of the Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Physical inactivity reduces cardiorespiratory fitness, which further compromises a stroke victim's daily living activities. It is well known that aerobic exercise can improve cardiorespiratory fitness. We conducted an exploratory study with an aim to compare oxygen consumption and peak heart rate between stroke patients and healthy participants during the performance of the tasks on the Modified Rivermead Mobility Index (MRMI) and to determine if these tasks reach an aerobic level of intensity during training. Oxygen consumption and heart rate were measured during the performance of the MRMI tasks in healthy patients and those who had suffered a stroke. Data between the two groups were compared using the independent t test and the Mann-Whitney U test, depending on if the criteria for parametric statistics were fulfilled. Results of the study found that there were no between-group differences in terms of the rate of oxygen consumption during the completion of the MRMI tasks (p>0.05). Stroke patients took longer to perform the tasks (10-minute walk and stair climbing; p=0.006) and, therefore, were associated with a higher total level of oxygen consumption compared with healthy participants (pcomplete certain MRMI tasks. These functional tasks could potentially be used as adjunct protocols to assist patients with stroke during aerobic training, but this will require further study.

Mites Mites Nature Bulletin No. 491 April 27, 1957 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Daniel Ryan, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor Ramon Swishe, Senior Naturalist MITES Spiders, scorpions, daddy-long-legs, ticks and mites are creatures known as arachnids. When adult they have eight legs. Insects have six. Mites and ticks differ from spiders by having the head, thorax and abdomen all fused into one oval-shaped baglike body. Throughout the world, many thousand species of mites have been identified and every year new kinds are found. Mites vary greatly in appearance and habits. They range in size from those 90 small that they cannot be seen without the aid of a microscope, up to some which are about one-half inch long. Some of the tiniest are wormlike and suck the juices of plants, causing blemishes and galls. Other pigmies live in the breathing passages of bees. Mites vary in color from white and pale yellow, gray or green to brilliant red or orange.

Forest Preserve District Forest Preserve District Nature Bulletin No. 109 March 29, 1947 Forest Preserve District of Cook County William N. Erickson, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation THE FOREST PRESERVE DISTRICT Forest Preserve Districts, in Illinois, are separate municipal bodies governed by a Board of Forest Preserve Commissioners consisting of the elected county commissioners, as in Cook County, or by a committee of the county board of supervisors, as in 7 other counties. The legislative act which provided for such a district, if authorized by referendum vote of the people, became a law on July 1, 1914. Under that act, the commissioners are empowered to levy taxes, issue bonds, and to acquire lands containing forests "for the purpose of protecting and preserving the flora, fauna and scenic beauties.... and to restore, restock, protect and preserve the natural forests and said lands with their flora and fauna, as nearly as may be in their natural state and condition for the purpose of the education, pleasure and recreation of the public". A limit of 35,000 acres was set; later increased to 39,000.

Need for Open Lands Need for Open Lands Nature Bulletin No. 742 February 8, 1964 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Seymour .Simon, President Roberts Mann, Conservation Editor THE NEED FOR OPEN LANDS There is an old saying: The proof of the pudding is the eating . In other words, if it's good, people enjoy it and beg for more. The proof of the need for open lands -- publicly owned areas for recreational uses and open spaces undisturbed -- is the tremendous and ever-increasing use of those we have. We need more now. Year after year we will need more and more. It is imperative that areas desirable for future use be acquired now or as soon as possible, regardless of cost and even though they may stand idle ' -- vacant and undeveloped -- until more funds become available. Otherwise they may be gone, or the asking price may be a hundred times greater. Open spaces such as farm lands and prairies may have been occupied by residential, commercial or industrial developments. Woodlands may have been cut, stream channels dredged and wetlands drained, destroying all but a memory of their beauty and recreational values. There are compelling reasons for our need of open lands and why we should waste no time in providing more. Those reasons have been confirmed and emphasized by exhaustive studies and statistical analyses nationwide in scope.

Fires - 1946 Fires - 1946 Nature Bulletin No. 85 September 28, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation FIRES - 1946 It happens every fall. Thousands of acres of vacant land are being burned-off: some of them because of matches, cigarettes or pipe dottle carelessly tossed aside along the highways and along the trails; some of them set afire by thoughtless boys; most of them deliberately burned by people who believe they will improve the crop of grass next year. That is stupid. And if you start a fire which burns over another person's property you are liable to arrest and heavy penalty, under the Illinois law, unless you have given that person proper notice of your intention. Fires harm -- they never help. The tough seeds and roots of the worthless grasses and weeds survive a fire but the good nutritious grasses and most wildflowers are killed. Further, all the winter food and cover for birds and other wildlife are destroyed.

Grasshoppers Grasshoppers Nature Bulletin No. 23 July 14, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation GRASSHOPPERS The grasshopper is the clown of the insect world. He does not "chew tobacco", as most boys think, but ejects a dark-brown digestive juice from his crop when captured and held. He is quite an athlete. If a man could leap as big and far, in proportion to his size, a man could jump over an eight-story building. Once in the air, the grasshopper can scar like an airplane with his stiff upper pair of wings, or fly considerable distances by rapidly vibrating his delicate lower pair. He has five eyes. The two big ones are each compounded of thousands of little eyes for seeing distant objects from any angle. The three small eyes, one of them in the middle of his forehead, are for seeing tiny details at close range. His "ears" are on the sides of his stomach just behind the thorax or chest. He has two short "horns" or antennae.

Adaptacin del cuestionario Sexual Opinion Survey: Encuesta Revisada de Opinin Sexual  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenIntroduccin El Sexual Opinion Survey mide la dimensin erotofilia-erotofobia o actitud aprendida frente a los estmulos sexuales. Dicho test presenta un sesgo debido a la orientacin sexual. Objetivo El objetivo es modificar el test corrigiendo dicho sesgo. Adems, se estudia la influencia del sexo, la orientacin sexual, el vivir en pareja y la orientacin poltica sobre dicha dimensin. Material y mtodo Veintitrs evaluadores de diferentes orientaciones sexuales determinaron los cambios en los tems del test original. Como resultado se cre la Encuesta Revisada de Opinin Sexual (EROS). El muestreo se realiz por conglomerados y bola de nieve, de lo que result una muestra de 313 personas mayores de edad con residencia en Andaluca. El contraste de las hiptesis se realiz mediante la prueba de Mann-Whitney y de Kruskal-Wallis. Resultados Los tems de EROS presentaron una correcta correlacin tem-total (>0,30) excepto el tem 12, el cual fue revisado optndose por conservar el tem original. Igualmente, el coeficiente alfa de Cronbach indic una alta consistencia interna de la prueba (0,851). Adems, se confirma una mayor erotofilia segn el sexo (hombres > mujeres), la orientacin sexual (bisexual > homosexual > heterosexual) y la orientacin poltica (izquierda > centro > derecha). No hay diferencias significativas entre personas con o sin pareja. Conclusiones EROS presenta parmetros adecuados para ser utilizado en clnica y en investigacin. Tiene como ventaja el ser aplicable a un mayor rango de poblacin al tener en cuenta la orientacin sexual. Por otro lado, se confirma cmo algunas variables sociodemogrficas influyen en la forma en que las personas responden ante los estmulos sexuales, lo que nos indica la necesidad de profundizar en el tema con el objetivo de entender mejor la sexualidad humana. Introduction The Sexual Opinion Survey analyzes erotophilia-erotophobia or learned attitude dimension regarding sexual stimuli. This test has a bias due to the sexual orientation. Objective The aim of this study is to modify the test by correcting this bias. Furthermore, it studies the influence of sex, sexual orientation, living as a couple and political orientation about this dimension. Material and method Twenty three evaluators from different sexual orientations determined the changes made on the items from the original test. This resulted in the Revised Sexual Opinion Survey (R-SOS). The sample was carried out by cluster and snowball. This resulted in a sample of 313 adults living in Andaluca. The contrast of this hypothesis was performed using the Mann-Whitney's and Kruskal-Wallis tests. Results R-SOS items showed a correct total-item correlation (>0.30) except for item 12. Item 12 was reviewed, and it was decided to maintain the original item. Likewise, Cronbach's alpha rate indicated high internal consistency of the test (0.851). Besides, a higher degree of erotophilia according to gender (men > women), sexual orientation (bisexual > homosexual > heterosexual) and the political orientation (left wing > center > right wing) was confirmed. There were no significant differences between persons who were single or had a partner. Conclusions R-SOS has adequate parameters to be used in the medical area and research. One of its advantages is that it is applicable to a greater range of population as it takes sexual orientation into account. On the other hand, it has been confirmed that some sociodemographic variations affect how people respond to sexual stimuli. That fact shows us that it is necessary to go more deeply into this investigation in order to have a greater understanding of human sexuality.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenPropsito Se investigaron retrospectivamente los resultados clnicos de los pacientes con prostatitis crnica inflamatoria tipo iii, que fueron tratados con fluoroquinolonas con y sin un bloqueador alfa entre 2009 y 2011. Material y mtodos Se estableci el diagnstico con la historia mdica (sntomas presentados durante ms de 3 meses dentro de los 6 meses previos), examen fsico, examen de Meares-Stamey y el cuestionario de la NIH-CPSI. Las respuestas al tratamiento fueron evaluadas con la prueba de uroflujometra y el cuestionario de la NIH-CPSI al principio y despus de 4 semanas de tratamiento. Los pacientes con datos y tratamiento incompletos y que fueron tratados con bloqueadores alfa y/o antibiticos en el perodo de 4 semanas antes de la terapia iniciada en nuestra clnica, y que tuvieron una ciruga del tracto urinario inferior anteriormente, fueron excluidos. Los pacientes se clasificaron en 6 grupos: grupo 1=ciprofloxacino; grupo 2=ofloxacino; grupo 3=levofloxacino; grupo 4=ciprofloxacino+tamsulosina, grupo 5=ofloxacino+tamsulosina; y grupo 6=levofloxacino+tamsulosina. Se utilizaron las pruebas Wilcoxon Signed Ranks y Kruskal Wallis para la comparacin de los resultados. Se utiliz la prueba U de Mann Whitney con correccin de Bonferroni realizada como post hoc (p<0,05). Resultados Las puntuaciones medias de la NIH-CPSI disminuyeron significativamente en todos los grupos (p<0,05). Levofloxacino redujo las puntuaciones medianas totales de NIH-CPSI ms que las monoterapias con ciprofloxacino y ofloxacino. Las terapias de combinacin eran mejores que las terapias con solo antibiticos y se obtuvo un mejor resultado en la combinacin de levofloxacino+tamsulosina. Conclusin Las combinaciones de tamsulosina+fluoroquinolona (en especial tamsulosina+levofloxacino) dieron mejores resultados en ambas puntuaciones NIH-CPSI y tasas de flujo mximo. AbstractPurpose We investigated retrospectively the clinical outcomes of the patients with type iii inflammatory chronic prostatitis, who were treated with fluoroquinolones with and without an ?-blocker between 2009-2011. Material and methods Diagnosis was established with medical history (symptoms presented longer than 3 months within previous 6 months), physical examination, Meares-Stamey test and the questionnaire of the NIH-CPSI. The responses to the treatment were assessed with uroflowmetry test and the questionnaire of NIH-CPSI at initial and after 4 weeks of the treatment. The patients with incomplete data and treatment and who treated with ?-blockers and/or antibiotics in the period 4 weeks prior to the therapy started in our clinic and had any surgery of lower urinary tract previously were excluded. The patients were classified under 6 groups; group1=ciprofloxacin, group2=ofloxacin, group3=levofloxacin, group4=ciprofloxacin+tamsulosin, group5=ofloxacin+tamsulosin, group 6=levofloxacin+tamsulosin. Wilcoxon Signed Ranks and Kruskal Wallis test were used for comparison of results. Mann Whitney U test with Bonferroni correction made was used as posthoc (P<.05). Results The median scores of NIH-CPSI decreased significantly in all groups (P<.05). Levofloxacin reduced the median total scores of NIH-CPSI more than ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin monotherapies. The combination therapies were better than antibiotic therapies alone and best result was obtained in levofloxacin+tamsulosin combination. Conclusion Tamsulosin+fluoroquinolone (especially tamsulosin+levofloxacin) combinations yielded better results in both NIH-CPSI scores and peak flow rates.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

ResumenJustificacin y objetivos la ketamina S(+) es un anestsico intravenoso y simpaticomimtico con propiedades de anestsico local. Posee un efecto analgsico y de anestsico local cuando se administra por va epidural, pero no existen datos que informen si la ketamina S(+) en bajas dosis tiene efectos simpaticomimticos. El objetivo de este estudio fue determinar si la ketamina S(+) en bajas dosis y administrada por va epidural en combinacin con el anestsico local tiene algn efecto sobre el sistema nervioso simptico, tanto sistmico como por debajo del nivel del bloqueo anestsico. Mtodos el estudio fue realizado con 2 grupos de pacientes sometidos a anestesia epidural. A un grupo (grupo control) se le administr la anestesia local (bupivacana al 0,5), mientras que a otro se le administr la anestesia local en combinacin con la ketamina S(+). La edad, altura, peso, presin arterial sistlica y diastlica y la presin arterial media se midieron. El mtodo inmunoqumico de inhibicin enzimtica no competitiva (Cat Combi ELISA) se us para determinar las concentraciones de catecolaminas (adrenalina y noradrenalina). El ensayo inmunoenzimomtrico con sustrato lumnico en una mquina llamada Vitros Eci fue usado para determinar la concentracin de cortisol. El tiempo de transicin del pulso fue medido usando la fotopletismografa. Para el anlisis estadstico se usaron los test de Wilcoxon, U de Mann-Whitney y ANOVA de Friedman. La presin arterial, pulso y concentraciones de adrenalina, noradrenalina y cortisol fueron medidos para estimar los efectos simpticos sistmicos. Resultados cuarenta pacientes del grupo control recibieron bupivacana al 5% y 40 pacientes del grupo test recibieron bupivacana al 0,5% con ketamina S(+). Un valor de p<0,05 se acept como el lmite de significacin estadstica. Conclusiones la baja dosis administrada por va epidural no tuvo efectos simpaticomimticos; no alter la presin arterial, pulso, hormonas sricas o el tiempo de trnsito del pulso. La baja dosis de ketamina S(+) administrada por va epidural no profundiz el bloqueo simptico. La adicin de 25mg de ketamina S(+) a la bupivacana al 0,5% no deprimi el tono simptico por debajo del nivel del bloqueo epidural al momento mximo de bloqueo simptico y no tiene ningn efecto sobre el tono simptico por encima del nivel del bloqueo. AbstractBackground and objectives S-(+)-ketamine is an intravenous anaesthetic and sympathomimetic with properties of local anaesthetic. It has an effect of an analgetic and local anaesthetic when administered epidurally, but there are no data whether low doses of S-(+)-ketamine have sympathomimetic effects. The aim of this study was to determine whether low doses of S-(+)-ketamine, given epidurally together with local anaesthetic, have any effect on sympathetic nervous system, both systemic and below the level of anaesthetic block. Methods The study was conducted on two groups of patients to whom epidural anaesthesia was administered to. Local anaesthesia (0.5% bupivacaine) was given to one group (control group) while local anaesthesia and S-(+)-ketamine were given to other group. Age, height, weight, systolic, diastolic and mean arterial blood pressure were measured. Non-competitive enzyme immunochemistry method (Cat Combi ELISA) was used to determine the concentrations of catecholamines (adrenaline and noradrenaline). Immunoenzymometric determination with luminescent substrate on a machine called Vitros Eci was used to determine the concentration of cortisol. Pulse transit time was measured using photoplethysmography. MannWhitney U-test, Wilcoxon test and Friedman ANOVA were the statistical tests. Blood pressure, pulse, adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol concentrations were measured in order to estimate systemic sympathetic effects.

33 September 22, 1945 33 September 22, 1945 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F., Smith, President Roberts Mann, Supt. of Conservation MOLES Few persons ever see a mole. He lives entirely underground and apparently lives alone, except in the spring when they mate and produce one litter, usually four in number. Each mole has a central nest-chamber deep under a stump, or boulder, or a sidewalk. From this he pushes out an extensive series of runways in search of food. They are enormous eaters. A mole may consume the equivalent of its own weight in worms and insects in a single day. The mole has a long pointed snout which is very sensitive, and a short tail, which is equally sensitive, to guide his backward movements along the runways. Their fur is lye velvet and may be brushed either backward or forward. They have tiny eyeballs about the size of the head of a pin, and tiny ears which, however, are very keen. The mole works like an animated plow, boring through the earth, usually just under the surface, with powerful breast strokes. His paddle-shaped front feet, with five toes each armed with a long broad claw and an extra sickle-shaped bone on the outside of the thumb, his powerful forelegs and shoulders, and his wedge-shaped head, enable him to tunnel at the rate of one foot in three minutes, They have been known to tunnel 100 yards in one night. Placed on the surface, a mole can dig himself out of sight in 10 seconds.

Smother Under Ice Smother Under Ice A BULLETIN FOR THE CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS DESIGNED FOR INCLUSION IN THE WEEKLY ANNOUNCEMENT SENT OUT FROM THE OFFICE OF SUPT. WILLIAM H. JOHNSON Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation February 1, 1945 Nature Bulletin No. 1 FOREST PRESERVE NOTES Grown-ups, who used to kive on a farm or in a small town, are fond of talking about the old-fashioned winters "when I was a boy" and the winters that grandpa used to tell about. Well, one would have to go back a long, long time to find a winter as severe as this one. FISH SMOTHER UNDER ICE Lakes and streams breathe the same as living things. When they are covered with ice and snow they cannot get air and they much hold their breath until the ice thaws. While they are holding their breath the oxygen in the water is gradually used up by the living things sealed up in it -- fish, plants "bugs", snails, and hosts of microscopic life. If the ice lasts long enough, these living things die one after another as each kind reaches the point where it cannot stand any further oxygen starvation. Sometimes temporary relief is given by rains and melting snow that bring fresh, serated water under the ice, but no method of artificial respiration has been found that works. Sometimes, too, when water plants get enough sunlight through clear ice they produce small amounts of oxygen and delay the suffocation of the fish, etc.; but when snow and cloudy ice cuts off the light this does not happen.

Arbor Day Arbor Day Nature Bulletin No. 62 April 20, 1946 Forest Preserve District of Cook County Clayton F. Smith, President Roberts Mann, Superintendent of Conservation ARBOR DAY The oldest living thing on earth is a tree. Some of the giant sequoias in California are more than 3500 years old. One of them, fallen, was proven to be 3210 years old by a count of the annual growth rings. It grew from a tiny seed which sprouted about the time when Joseph, with the coat of many colors, was prime minister of Egypt and the known world was in the middle bronze age. The largest living thing on earth is a tree, the General Sherman, a giant sequoia in Giant Forest, Sequoia National Park. It has a base diameter of 30.7 feet, a diameter of 17 feet at 120 feet above the ground, and a height of 272 feet. Its first large branch, starting at 130 feet above the ground, is 6.8 feet in diameter and 150 feet long, itself larger than the largest of many other tree species, yet an inconspicuous part of this monster. The trunk of the General Sherman, exclusive of the limbs, contains about 50,000 cubic feet wood and probably 250,000 board feet of usable lumber could be obtained -- enough to build 15 five-room all- wood houses. Two other giant sequoias, the General Grant and the Boole, have base diameters of 33.3 and 33.2 feet respectively, but they are not as high and taper more rapidly.

Retinal Embolization During Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting: Periprocedural Data and Follow-Up  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the incidence of retinal emboli during carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) and to correlate emboli with clinical findings and transcranial Doppler (TCD)-detected cerebral embolic load. Between 2001 and 2005, 33 CAS procedures in 32 patients (23 [72%] male, 19 [58%] symptomatic, mean age 72.5 years [range 54.6 to 83.9]) scheduled for CAS were included in this study. Bilateral fundoscopy with retinal photography was performed by an experienced ophthalmologist immediately before, immediately after (fundoscopy only), and 1 day after the procedure and again at long-term follow-up (mean 37 months). Visual field testing was performed before CAS and again at long-term follow-up. TCD-detected cerebral emboli were stratified to five procedural phases: wiring, predilatation, stent placement, postdilatation, and cerebral protection device (CPD) use (if applicable). To establish correlation between TCD data and retinal embolization, Mann-Whitney test was used, and P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant. All procedures were performed successfully. In five of 33 procedures (15%), new retinal emboli were found. Two of the procedures with emboli had small retinal infarcts. Three of five were performed using CPDs versus seven of 28 that had no retinal emboli (P = not significant). Two of four patients (50%) with previous radiation therapy to the neck had new retinal emboli versus three of 29 patients (10%) who had no previous radiation therapy (P = 0.038). None of the other patient characteristics was associated with retinal embolization. In 30 (91%) of patients with an adequate acoustic temporal window for TCD monitoring, there was no statistically significant correlation between TCD data and the incidence of retinal emboli. No visual field defects were found. On long-term follow-up, all retinal emboli and retinal infarcts had resolved. Retinal embolization during CAS is not uncommon, and it occurs in both protected and unprotected procedures. Most retinal emboli are clinically silent.

The Goldstone theorem protects naturalness, and the absence of Brout-Englert-Higgs fine-tuning, in spontaneously broken SO(2)  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The Gell-Mann-Levy (GML), Schwinger and Standard Models were previously shown to lack a Brout-Englert-Higgs (BEH) fine-tuning problem due to quadratic divergences, with finite Euclidean cut-off \\Lambda, because of the symmetries obeyed by all O(\\Lambda^2) contributions. We extend those results to finite contributions from certain M_{Heavy}^2>> m_{BEH}^2 particles in SO(2) versions of GML and Schwinger. We demonstrate explicit 1-loop physical naturalness for two SO(2) singlet examples: a heavy real scalar S and a right-handed Type 1 see-saw Majorana neutrino. We prove that for low |q^2| the heavy degrees of freedom contribute, at worst, marginal operators in spontaneously broken SO(2) Schwinger. The key GML lesson from these examples is that the pseudo Nambu-Goldstone boson (NGB) mass-squared must be properly renormalized. A true NGB value, m_3^2 = 0, is then protected by the Goldstone theorem. For the Schwinger model, two crucial observations emerge: global Ward-Takahashi identities (WTI) force all relevant operators into the pseudo-NGB mass-squared; and WTI enforce the Goldstone theorem by forbidding all relevant operator contributions in the spontaneously broken Goldstone mode, \\pi_3 is a massless NGB there. Goldstone mode, with weak-scale m_{BEH}^2 \\& ^2, is not-fine-tuned even as a low-energy effective theory with certain high-mass-scale extensions. Its "Goldstone Exceptional Naturalness (GEN)," where all relevant operators vanish, a powerful suppression of fine-tuning, is simply another (albeit un-familiar) consequence of WTI, spontaneous symmetry breaking and the Goldstone theorem. If GEN can somehow be extended to the Standard Model (SM), there should be no expectation that LHC will discover any Beyond the SM physics unrelated to neutrino mixing, i.e. the only known experimentally necessary modification of the Standard Model plus General Relativity paradigm.

Monte Carlo simulation of the basic features of the GE Millennium MG single photon emission computed tomography gamma camera  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractObjective To describe and validate the simulation of the basic features of GE Millennium MG gamma camera using the GATE Monte Carlo platform. Material and methods Crystal size and thickness, parallel-hole collimation and a realistic energy acquisition window were simulated in the GATE platform. GATE results were compared to experimental data in the following imaging conditions: a point source of 99mTc at different positions during static imaging and tomographic acquisitions using two different energy windows. The accuracy between the events expected and detected by simulation was obtained with the MannWhitneyWilcoxon test. Comparisons were made regarding the measurement of sensitivity and spatial resolution, static and tomographic. Simulated and experimental spatial resolutions for tomographic data were compared with the KruskalWallis test to assess simulation accuracy for this parameter. Results There was good agreement between simulated and experimental data. The number of decays expected when compared with the number of decays registered, showed small deviation (?0.007%). The sensitivity comparisons between static acquisitions for different distances from source to collimator (1, 5, 10, 20, 30cm) with energy windows of 126154keV and 130158keV showed differences of 4.4%, 5.5%, 4.2%, 5.5%, 4.5% and 5.4%, 6.3%, 6.3%, 5.8%, 5.3%, respectively. For the tomographic acquisitions, the mean differences were 7.5% and 9.8% for the energy window 126154keV and 130158keV. Comparison of simulated and experimental spatial resolutions for tomographic data showed no statistically significant differences with 95% confidence interval. Conclusions Adequate simulation of the system basic features using GATE Monte Carlo simulation platform was achieved and validated.

Comparison of results after fluoroquinolones and combination therapies in type iiiA chronic prostatitis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractPurpose We investigated retrospectively the clinical outcomes of the patients with type iii inflammatory chronic prostatitis, who were treated with fluoroquinolones with and without an ?-blocker between 2009 and 2011. Material and methods Diagnosis was established with medical history (symptoms presented longer than 3 months within previous 6 months), physical examination, Meares-Stamey test and the questionnaire of the NIH-CPSI. The responses to the treatment were assessed with uroflowmetry test and the questionnaire of NIH-CPSI at initial and after 4 weeks of the treatment. The patients with incomplete data and treatment and who treated with ?-blockers and/or antibiotics in the period 4 weeks prior to the therapy started in our clinic and had any surgery of lower urinary tract previously were excluded. The patients were classified under 6 groups: group1=ciprofloxacin, group2=ofloxacin, group3=levofloxacin, group4=ciprofloxacin+tamsulosin, group5=ofloxacin+tamsulosin, group 6=levofloxacin+tamsulosin. Wilcoxon Signed Ranks and Kruskal Wallis test were used for comparison of results. Mann Whitney U test with Bonferroni correction made was used as post hoc (p<.05). Results The median scores of NIH-CPSI decreased significantly in all groups (p<.05). Levofloxacin reduced the median total scores of NIH-CPSI more than ciprofloxacin and ofloxacin monotherapies. The combination therapies were better than antibiotic therapies alone and best result was obtained in levofloxacin+tamsulosin combination. Conclusion Tamsulosin+fluoroquinolone (especially tamsulosin+levofloxacin) combinations yielded better results in both NIH-CPSI scores and peak flow rates.
