Piercing ear cartilage  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Piercing ear cartilage Piercing ear cartilage Name: Mark Reynolds Status: N/A Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: My name is Mark Reynolds. I have heard that there is a nerve in the cartilage area of the ear. My question is as follows: If you pierce your ear(s) and do hit the nerve, could permanent paralysis or brain damage occur? Thank you. Replies: No. Basically nerves serve two purposes: gathering information from the senses (sensory nerves) and controlling muscles (motor nerves). If you damage a sensory nerve, then that nerve can't send messages to the brain, but this will not damage the brain. If you damage a motor nerve then the brain can't send messages to a muscle and indeed paralysis occurs. But nerves are laid out sensibly, that is, nerves do not go from your brain through your earlobe and then on to your leg or arm. Damaging a motor nerve in your ear won't affect anything other than your ear muscles, if there are any. Paralysis is usually temporary if motor nerve damage occurs outside of the spinal cord, since the main body of the motor nerve cells are in the spinal cord and the "axons" connecting them to the muscles can regrow (about a millimeter a day). If nerve cell bodies themselves are damaged by injury to the spinal cord they may recover and paralysis go away. This may also happen even if nerve cells are killed, as long as not too many are, and other cells can take over. But if too many are killed paralysis is permanent, since nerve cells never reproduce.

Glowing eyes  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Glowing eyes Glowing eyes Name: Sophie Hunt Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Why do dogs eyes glow in the dark? Replies: They have a reflective surface behind the retina (light sensitive back surface) of the eye which bounces light from, for example, your headlights back at you somewhat like highway reflectors. The purpose of the surface is to increase the ability of the retina to detect faint light -- that is, the ability of the animal to see in the dark -- by making the light pass *twice* through the retina. Humans don't have this surface, but very bright light will bounce back from the retina itself enough to be seen. Since the retina is red (from its ample blood supply) you see a red reflection, and this is the source of the "red spot" in the eyes in photographs of people who looked at the flash.

Eye Physiology Eye Physiology Name: Charlotte Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: I do Physics A level and in my last exam it was really annoying because one of the questions was something that I've always wanted to know but never got around to finding out. You know when you look at a star in the sky or those glowing stars that you stick on your bedroom ceiling? Well, why is it that they don't look as bright when you look directly at them, but do when you look slightly to the side? Replies: _Hello Charlotte The answer is to do with the biology of the eye. There are two types of receptor cells in the eye and each has strengths and weaknesses: 1. Rod cells - only see black and white but are very sensitive (ie will pick up very small amounts of light) 2. Cone cells - see color but are not as sensitive as rod cells.

Eye Color in Humans Eye Color in Humans Name: Kristi Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: The dominant characteristic is the one most likely to appear in the offspring. In human beings, brown is the dominant color for eyes. The children who inherit at least on dominant gene will have either brown, green, or hazel eyes. Only childten who inherit two recessive genes will have pure blue eyes. If there are eight children in the family, what color eyes will most of them have? Replies: http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/archive.htm Search under eye color Steve Sample You answer is of course dependent on the genes of the parents. If both parents do not have the recessive gene, then no children will have light colored eyes. If one has a recessive gene and the other not, then still no children will have light color eyes and on the average 25% of the eight children could have the recessive gene. If both parents have the recessive gene, then 25% of the eight children could have light color eyes.

Blue-eyed Babies

Blue-eyed Babies Blue-eyed Babies Name: Jill Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: One of my students asked me the other day why all babies are born with blue eyes, even though they are truly brown-eyed, once their eyes change colour. What causes this phenomenon? Exposure to air, maybe? Replies: Hi, First of all not all babies are born with blue eyes. This is especially evident in the Asian/ Indian continents. The cause for the delay is nothing more than a delay in the enzymes that bring on the darker color proteins. You are probably aware that eye color is determined by more than one gene. The darker colors have blue coloration as part of their make-up and that may be the only protein of the color exposed at birth for many individuals. The proteins that give the darker colors usually turn on within a year of birth and this timing varies with individuals.

Neurosensory Development in the Zebrafish Inner Ear  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The vertebrate inner ear is a complex structure responsible for hearing and balance. The inner ear houses sensory epithelia composed of mechanosensory hair cells and non-sensory support cells. Hair cells synapse with neurons of the VIIIth cranial ganglion, the statoacoustic ganglion (SAG), and transmit sensory information to the hindbrain. This dissertation focuses on the development and regulation of both sensory and neuronal cell populations. The sensory epithelium is established by the basic helixloop- helix transcription factor Atoh1. Misexpression of atoh1a in zebrafish results in induction of ectopic sensory epithelia albeit in limited regions of the inner ear. We show that sensory competence of the inner ear can be enhanced by co-activation of fgf8/3 or sox2, genes that normally act in concert with atoh1a. The developing sensory epithelia express several factors that regulate differentiation and maintenance of hair cells. We show that pax5 is differentially expressed in the anterior utricular macula (sensory epithelium). Knockdown of pax5 function results in utricular hair cell death and subsequent loss of vestibular (balance) but not auditory (hearing) defects. SAG neurons are formed normally in these embryos but show disorganized dendrites in the utricle following loss of hair cells. Lastly, we examine the development of SAG. SAG precursors (neuroblasts) are formed in the floor of the ear by another basic helix-loophelix transcription factor neurogenin1 (neurog1). We show that Fgf emanating from the utricular macula specifies neuroblasts, that later delaminate from the otic floor and undergo a phase of proliferation. Neuroblasts then differentiate into bipolar neurons that extend processes to hair cells and targets in the hindbrain. We show evidence that differentiating neurons express fgf5 and regulate further development of the SAG. As more differentiated neurons accumulate, increasing level of Fgf terminates the phase of neuroblast specification. Later on, elevated Fgf stabilizes the transit-amplifying phase and inhibits terminal differentiation. Thus, Fgf signaling regulates SAG development at various stages to ensure that proper number of neurons is generated.

EYE STRAIN AND EYE PROTECTION DURING IRRADIATION THERAPY AND DIAGNOSIS  

SciTech Connect

Sensitivity of various components of the eye is surveyed and means for preventing injury to them discussed. Pertinent experiments by the author on rabbits are described. The lens is the most radiation-sensitive part of the eye; two dependent changes take place after irradiation: clouding, and weight alterations of the lens. Cataract starts as a clouding of the posterior commissure, extends into the capsule, and it high doses there may- be clouding of the entire lens. Once clouding of the lens has begun it does not disappear. The threshold dose producing cataracts in young animals is about 200 r. Weight alterations of the lens, due to changes in water content or possibly growth inhibition or destructive changes, appear at doses far below those needed to produce clouding. The threshold dose for clouding of the cornea is about 10 times that for the lens. Doses in excess of 2000 r result in corneal clouding in 70% of the cases, but are reversible. The conjunctiva is also relatively insensitive to irradiation. When the eyes of young animals are irradiated, development of the whole eye is retarded. A 12% reduction in the weight of the eye follows absorption of 1000 rad, and this rises to 40% at 2000 rad. The RBE of different forms of radiation on damage to the lens is tabulated. Effects of radiation on the eye vary directly with the dose absorbed, and inversely with the age of the animal at the time or irradiation, both of which reduce the time of onset and intensity of manifestations. Age determines both the latent period before onset of symptoms, and the time to develop full damage. Radiation injury occurs in four stages that are identified. Any necessary xray examinations of the eye may be undertaken and repeated when required, without fear of complications, as no methods of x-ray diagnosis give a surface dose approaching 200 r, but caution is required in therapeutic irradiation of the head region. The radiation dose at the lens during treatment of tumors of the antra, orbits, nasopharynx and palate, and of the brain show that the threshold dose for irradiation cataract is exceeded by some methods. Also discussed is the extent to which the eyes of a radiologist in a diagnostic department are endangered by radiation exposure. (BBB)

Media representation of maternal neonaticide  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The present research conducted a rich discourse analysis of an episode of the fictional television crime drama, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, as well as a content analysis of local and national news transcripts focusing on the representation of mothers who commit neonaticide. Both fictional and non-fictional media sources exhibited aspects of the monstrous maternal theme and the strain defense theme. The monstrous maternal theme consists of words and statements that indicate the descriptions of crime committed against the newborn as well as negative responses and reactions by others to the young mother and her crime. The strain defense theme refers to instances that discuss the internal and external strains of the young woman that may have contributed to her committing neonaticide. However, the "monstrous maternal" is the prevailing representation of mothers who commit neonaticide in both fictional and non-fictional media sources. This media representation utilizes "control talk" to separate "us" the good mothers, who abide by the cultural expectations of traditional gender roles and embrace the internal and external strains of motherhood, from "them" the criminal mothers, who fail to adhere to these role expectations of motherhood by committing neonaticide. The present research reveals that cultural stories and scripts of the monstrous maternal still exist. This contemporary folklore may serve as a form of social control to scare women into conforming to these traditional gender roles and bearing the burden of the motherhood strains, in order to avoid being branded a bad mother. Finally, the present research develops the application of General Strain Theory to explain the internal and external strains of a young woman that may contribute to her committing the criminal act of maternal neonaticide. These media representations of maternal neonaticide could impact the criminal justice system and public policy. Questions of accuracy, gendered understandings of crime and gendered understanding of appropriate punishment are areas the present research explores. Most importantly, the present research seeks to investigate the connection between legal culture in both media and professional practice - and what those connections mean for our general cultural understandings of violence and aggression in women.

Modernizing the handling of ear corn. Final technical report  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The goal of the project was to modernize the handling of ear corn. The corn was picked with a three row JD 300 picker pulled by a tractor. Pulled behind the picker was a side dump wagon with a capacity of 150 bushels of ear corn. When the dump wagon was full, a grain truck was driven along side of the wagon and the dump wagon, controlled by the tractor driver, was emptied into the truck. After two dumps of the wagon, the truck was driven to the storage area. The storage area consisted of ten (ten) 2000 bushel corn cribs set in a semi circle so that the elevator that filled the cribs could be moved from one crib to the next without changing the fill point. At the storage area, the truck full of corn was dumped into the platform feeder. By using a platform feeder to feed the elevator, all ten (10) cribs could be filled without moving it. After the harvest was complete, the corn remains in the cribs until needed for feed or until the corn is sold. During the time that the corn remains in the cribs, the turbine ventilator draws air through the corn and dries it.

Systems and methods for biometric identification using the acoustic properties of the ear canal  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

The present invention teaches systems and methods for verifying or recognizing a person's identity based on measurements of the acoustic response of the individual's ear canal. The system comprises an acoustic emission device, which emits an acoustic source signal s(t), designated by a computer, into the ear canal of an individual, and an acoustic response detection device, which detects the acoustic response signal f(t). A computer digitizes the response (detected) signal f(t) and stores the data. Computer-implemented algorithms analyze the response signal f(t) to produce ear-canal feature data. The ear-canal feature data obtained during enrollment is stored on the computer, or some other recording medium, to compare the enrollment data with ear-canal feature data produced in a subsequent access attempt, to determine if the individual has previously been enrolled. The system can also be adapted for remote access applications.

Data eye monitor method and apparatus  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An apparatus and method for providing a data eye monitor. The data eye monitor apparatus utilizes an inverter/latch string circuit and a set of latches to save the data eye for providing an infinite persistent data eye. In operation, incoming read data signals are adjusted in the first stage individually and latched to provide the read data to the requesting unit. The data is also simultaneously fed into a balanced XOR tree to combine the transitions of all incoming read data signals into a single signal. This signal is passed along a delay chain and tapped at constant intervals. The tap points are fed into latches, capturing the transitions at a delay element interval resolution. Using XORs, differences between adjacent taps and therefore transitions are detected. The eye is defined by segments that show no transitions over a series of samples. The eye size and position can be used to readjust the delay of incoming signals and/or to control environment parameters like voltage, clock speed and temperature.

Proactive Information Retrieval by Monitoring Eye Movements  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A long term goal in user modeling for improving human-computer interaction is to understand the user's intent based on her monitored actions. We are developing an information retrieval system where the task is to predict relevance for new documents, given judgments on old ones. By monitoring the user's eye movements and inferring implicit feedback from them we reduce the amount of tedious ranking of retrieved documents, called relevance feedback in standard information retrieval. Relevance is inferred with machine learning methods, trained on eye movement patterns measured in settings where relevance is known. Noise in the predictions is compensated for by fusing the eye movements with other information about the user's preferences. The goal is to make the information retrieval system proactive, that is, capable of anticipating the user's interests.

During summer, we captured three federally endangered Virginia big-eared bats at two mine entrances, and 25 were captured at 12 mine entrances during fall. These represent the first documented captures of this species at coal mines in West Virginia. Future survey efforts conducted throughout the range of the Virginia big-eared bat should include abandoned coal mines.

Determination of positions of optical elements of the human eye  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

An original method for noninvasive determining the positions of elements of intraocular optics is proposed. The analytic dependence of the measurement error on the optical-scheme parameters and the restriction in distance from the element being measured are determined within the framework of the method proposed. It is shown that the method can be efficiently used for determining the position of elements in the classical Gullstrand eye model and personalised eye models. The positions of six optical surfaces of the Gullstrand eye model and four optical surfaces of the personalised eye model can be determined with an error of less than 0.25 mm. (human eye optics)

Intra- and interspecific responses to Rafinesques big-eared bat (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) social calls.  

SciTech Connect

Bats respond to the calls of conspecifics as well as to calls of other species; however, few studies have attempted to quantify these responses or understand the functions of these calls. We tested the response of Rafinesques big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) to social calls as a possible method to increase capture success and to understand the function of social calls. We also tested if calls of bats within the range of the previously designated subspecies differed, if the responses of Rafinesques big-eared bats varied with geographic origin of the calls, and if other species responded to the calls of C. rafinesquii. We recorded calls of Rafinesques big-eared bats at two colony roost sites in South Carolina, USA. Calls were recorded while bats were in the roosts and as they exited. Playback sequences for each site were created by copying typical pulses into the playback file. Two mist nets were placed approximately 50500 m from known roost sites; the net with the playback equipment served as the Experimental net and the one without the equipment served as the Control net. Call structures differed significantly between the Mountain and Coastal Plains populations with calls from the Mountains being of higher frequency and longer duration. Ten of 11 Rafinesques big-eared bats were caught in the Control nets and, 13 of 19 bats of other species were captured at Experimental nets even though overall bat activity did not differ significantly between Control and Experimental nets. Our results suggest that Rafinesques big-eared bats are not attracted to conspecifics calls and that these calls may act as an intraspecific spacing mechanism during foraging.

Forces between clustered stereocilia minimize friction in the ear on a subnanometre scale  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The detection of sound begins when energy derived from acoustic stimuli deflects the hair bundles atop hair cells. As hair bundles move, the viscous friction between stereocilia and the surrounding liquid poses a fundamental challenge to the ear's high sensitivity and sharp frequency selectivity. Part of the solution to this problem lies in the active process that uses energy for frequency-selective sound amplification. Here we demonstrate that a complementary part involves the fluid-structure interaction between the liquid within the hair bundle and the stereocilia. Using force measurement on a dynamically scaled model, finite-element analysis, analytical estimation of hydrodynamic forces, stochastic simulation and high-resolution interferometric measurement of hair bundles, we characterize the origin and magnitude of the forces between individual stereocilia during small hair-bundle deflections. We find that the close apposition of stereocilia effectively immobilizes the liquid between them, which reduces t...

On subwavelength imaging of Maxwell's fish eye lens  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Both explicit analysis and FEM numerical simulation are used to analyze the field distribution of a line current in the so-called Maxwell's fish eye lens, which has been claimed recently to be able to achieve perfect imaging. We show that such a Maxwell's fish eye lens cannot give perfect imaging due to the fact that high order modes of the object field can hardly reach the image point in the Maxwell's fish eye. If only zero order mode is excited, a subwavelength image can be achieved, however, its spot-size is larger than the spot size of the source field. The image resolution is determined by the field spot size of the image corresponding to the zeroth order component of the object field. Our explicit analysis consists very well with the FEM results for a modified fish eye bounded with perfectly electrical conductor (PEC). Explicit condition is given for achieving a subwavelength image. When this condition is not satisfied, a single line current source may give multiple image spots.

We show that such a 2D Maxwell's fish eye lens cannot give perfect imaging due to the fact that high order modes of the object field can hardly reach the image point in Maxwell's fish eye lens. If only zeroth order mode is excited, a subwavelength image of a sharp object may be achieved in some cases, however, its spot-size is larger than the spot size of the initial object field. The image resolution is determined by the field spot size of the image corresponding to the zeroth order component of the object field. Our explicit analysis consists very well with the FEM results for a fish eye lens. Time-domain simulation is also given to verify our conclusion. Multi-point imaging for a single object point is also demonstrated.

We show that such a 2D Maxwell's fish eye lens cannot give perfect imaging due to the fact that high order modes of the object field can hardly reach the image point in Maxwell's fish eye lens. If only zeroth order mode is excited, a good image of a sharp object may be achieved in some cases, however, its spot-size is larger than the spot size of the initial object field. The image resolution is determined by the field spot size of the image corresponding to the zeroth order component of the object field.

Seasonal and multiannual roost use by Rafinesque's Big-eared Bats in the Coastal Plain of South Carolina.  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Little is known about factors affecting year-round use of roosts by Rafinesque's big-eared bats (Corynorhinus rafinesquii) or the long-term fidelity of this species to anthropogenic or natural roosts. The objectives of this study were to test whether seasonal use of roosts by Rafinesque's big-eared bats varied with roost type and environmental conditions within and among seasons and to document multiannual use of natural and anthropogenic structures by this species. We inspected 4 bridges, 1 building, and 59 tree roosts possessing basal cavity openings; roosts were inspected at least once per week from May through October in every year from 2005 through 2008 and once a month from November through April in every year from 2005 through 2009. We found that use of anthropogenic roosts was significantly greater than the use of tree roosts in summer but that the use of structure types did not differ in other seasons. There was significant seasonal variation in use of anthropogenic and tree roosts. Anthropogenic roost use was higher in summer than in all other seasons. There was no significant difference in tree use among spring, summer, and fall, but use in winter was significantly lower in 2 years of the study. Overall use of anthropogenic and tree roosts was positively related to minimum temperature, but the relationship between use of roosts and minimum temperature varied among seasons. Bats showed multiannual fidelity ({ge} 4 years) to all anthropogenic roosts and to some tree roosts, but fidelity of bats to anthropogenic roosts was greater and more consistent than to tree roosts. Our data indicate that Rafinesque's big-eared bats responded differently to environmental conditions among seasons; thus, a variety of structure types and characteristics are necessary for conservation of these bats. We suggest long-term protection of roost structures of all types is necessary for conservation of Rafinesque's big-eared bats in the southeast Coastal Plain.

Part of the solution to this problem lies in the active process that uses energy for frequency-selective sound amplification. Here we demonstrate that a complementary part involves the fluid-structure interaction between the liquid within the hair bundle and the stereocilia. Using force measurement on a dynamically scaled model, finite-element analysis, analytical estimation of hydrodynamic forces, stochastic simulation and high-resolution interferometric measurement of hair bundles, we characterize the origin and magnitude of the forces between individual stereocilia during small hair-bundle deflections. We find that the close apposition of stereocilia effectively immobilizes the liquid between them, which reduces the drag and suppresses the relative squeezing but not the sliding mode of stereociliary motion. The obliquely oriented tip links couple the mechanotransduction channels to this least dissipative coherent mode, whereas the elastic horizontal top connectors stabilize the structure, further reducing the drag. As measured from the distortion products associated with channel gating at physiological stimulation amplitudes of tens of nanometres, the balance of forces in a hair bundle permits a relative mode of motion between adjacent stereocilia that encompasses only a fraction of a nanometre. A combination of high-resolution experiments and detailed numerical modelling of fluid-structure interactions reveals the physical principles behind the basic structural features of hair bundles and shows quantitatively how these organelles are adapted to the needs of sensitive mechanotransduction.

Effects of Maternal Nutrition Manipulation on Mares and Their Foals  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Previous research documented the fetus is sensitive to nutrition of the dam, but this has not been thoroughly investigated in horses. Objectives of the current studies were to determine effect of manipulation of maternal nutrition during the last third of pregnancy on mare performance, intake, hormones, foaling parameters, colostrum, and foal passive transfer of immunity and growth, and effects of supplemental arginine. Plane of nutrition influenced mare performance, and DMI was influenced by time with the first trial finding all mares consumed less in the 10th month of pregnancy compared to the 11th month, and the second trial finding all mares consumed less during the 11th month. Additionally, the second study determined arginine supplementation has no detrimental effects on DMI. Both studies indicated the dual marker system was sufficient at estimating DMI. Neither trial found an influence of treatment on foaling parameters or physical measurements obtained following parturition, and the second study determined arginine supplementation also did not affect foaling or measurements. The first study determined maternal nutrition did not affect foal growth or ADG. When colostrum quality was evaluated, the first study determined mares consuming only hay had increased specific gravity and Brix% indicating higher quality. This was confirmed by IgG analysis finding a tendency for increased IgG concentration. However, colostrum volume was not affected by nutrition, nor was total g IgG. The second study found contrasting results with greater specific gravity in mares on a high plane of nutrition, and a tendency for moderate plane of nutrition mares to have greater volume. Additionally, the second study determined that arginine supplementation does not influence colostrum volume or quality (measured by specific gravity or Brix %). In the first trial, maternal diets affected glucose and insulin AUC in mares, which altered insulin dynamics in the resulting foals. Foal insulin AUC and peak insulin concentration were greater in foals from mares supplemented with concentrate compared to foals from mares fed hay alone. These studies have provided a wealth of information to help elucidate the impact of maternal nutrition in late gestation on mares and their foals.

Comment on 'Perfect drain for the Maxwell fish eye lens'  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The non-magnetic loss material has been proposed (2011 New J. Phys. 13 023038) to mimic a passive perfect drain in the Maxwell's fish eye lens (MFL). In this comment, we argue that this passive medium can only be treated as a perfect absorber which can totally absorb all incident radiation without scattering by it, but it cannot mimic a delta function at the image point. As a result, this passive medium cannot help to achieve a perfect focusing in MFL.

The effects of variations in the density and composition of eye materials on ophthalmic brachytherapy dosimetry  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In ophthalmic brachytherapy dosimetry, it is common to consider the water phantom as human eye anatomy. However, for better clinical analysis, there is a need for the dose determination in different parts of the eye. In this work, a full human eye is simulated with MCNP-4C code by considering all parts of the eye, i.e., the lens, cornea, retina, choroid, sclera, anterior chamber, optic nerve, and bulk of the eye comprising vitreous body and tumor. The average dose in different parts of this full model of the human eye is determined and the results are compared with the dose calculated in water phantom. The central axes depth dose and the dose in whole of the tumor for these 2 simulated eye models are calculated as well, and the results are compared.

Results from the High Resolution Fly's Eye Experiment  

SciTech Connect

The High Resolution Fly's Eye (HiRes) Experiment operated two fluorescence detector sites in the western Utah desert between 1997 and 2006. The HiRes results on the cosmic ray spectrum are consistent with the GZK Suppression predicted at 10{sup 19.8} eV and observe an ankle structure at 10{sup 18.5} eV. These spectral features are consistent with a proton-dominated composition for cosmic rays at the highest energies. The HiRes composition studies of both the mean and the variance of the shower maximum depth (X{sub max}) also give results that are completely consistent with a predominately protonic composition, and inconsistent with heavy nuclei such as iron. We also report on the result of anisotropy studies.

Perfect drain for the Maxwell Fish Eye lens  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Perfect imaging for electromagnetic waves using the Maxwell Fish Eye (MFE) requires a new concept: the perfect drain. From the mathematical point of view, a perfect point drain is just like an ideal point source, except that it drains power from the electromagnetic field instead of generating it. We show here that the perfect drain for the MFE can be seen as a dissipative region the diameter of which tends to zero. The complex permittivity $\\varepsilon$ of this region cannot take arbitrary values, however, since it depends on the size of the drain as well as on the frequency. This interpretation of the perfect drain connects well with central concepts of electromagnetic theory. This opens up both the modeling in computer simulations and the experimental verification of the perfect drain.

Context Effects in Coercion: Evidence from Eye-Movements  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Four eye-movement monitoring studies examined the processing of expressions argued to require enriched semantic composition (Pustejovsky, 1995). Previous research found that noun phrases denoting entities (e.g., the book) were difficult to process following verbs that require event complements (e.g., begin). Expressions like began the book may be difficult to process because they require complex operations to construct an event sense (e.g., began writing the book), they engender competition between alternative interpretations (cf. began reading the book), or they require a costly retrieval operation to recover a suitable activity (e.g., reading). Introducing the activity before a target expression did not eliminate the processing cost (Experiments 1 and 2), but introducing the entire event sense did (Experiments 3 and 4). These findings are incompatible with ambiguity- or retrieval-based accounts and suggest that interpretation is costly when composition requires construction of a sense not lexically stored or available in the immediate discourse. 3 A suitable interpretation for an expression, a phrase or clause, can sometimes be derived by simply combining key semantic properties of the individual words according to their syntactic position in the sentence (e.g., Jackendoff, 1997, 2002). In such circumstances, semantic properties retrieved from lexical representations and grammatical constraints associated with syntactic representations will uniquely determine the interpretation of the expression. Accordingly, the compositional mechanism---the critical interface between lexical and syntactic processing on one hand and discourse and text comprehension on the other---might be thought of as rather minimal, consisting merely of rules or principles for recursively combining...

Can Maxwell's Fish Eye Lens Really Give Perfect Imaging? Part II. The case with drains  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We use both FEM (finite element method) and FDTD (finite difference time domain method) to simulate the field distribution in Maxwell's fish eye lens with one or more passive drains around the image point. We use the same Maxwell's fish eye lens structure as the one used in recent microwave experiment [arXiv:1007.2530]: Maxwell's fish eye lens bounded by PEC (perfect electric conductor) is inserted between two parallel PEC plates (as a waveguide structure). Our simulation results indicate that if one uses an active coaxial cable as the object and set an array of passive drains around the image region, what one obtains is not an image of the object but only multiple spots resembling the array of passive drains. The resolution of Maxwell's fish eye is finite even with such passive drains at the image locations. We also found that the subwavelength spot around the passive drain is due to the local field enhancement of the metal tip of the drain rather than the fish eye medium or the ability of the drain in extra...

Development and Usability Evaluation of an E-learning Application Using Eye-tracking  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The primary goal of this research is to use eye-tracking in the development and usability evaluation of an e-learning tool called "Problem Solving Environment for Continuous Process Design" (PSE). The PSE is meant to aid engineering students in learning the design processes of automated manufacturing systems. PSE is a user-interactive Flash application which gives the user an opportunity to virtually design an automated industrial process by manipulating the parameters associated with it. PSE is evaluated using eye-tracking experiments in which users' eye movements are tracked using camera and sensors to determine users' gaze direction and fixations. The data collected from the experiment is used to determine if use of visual cues improved the usability of the PSE. Results show that use of visual cues for gaze direction improved the usability of the PSE application, based on faster task completion times and improved navigability.

PRIORITY COMMUNICATION Maternal Stress Beginning in Infancy May Sensitize Children to Later Stress Exposure: Effects on Cortisol and Behavior*  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

neonatal environment can permanently alter an individuals responses to stress. To demonstrate a similar phenomenon in humans, we prospectively examined the relationships of maternal stress beginning in infancy and concurrent stress on preschoolers hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal activity and later mental health symptoms. Methods: Salivary cortisol levels were assessed in 282 4.5-year-old children and 154 of their siblings. Maternal reports of stress were obtained when the children were ages 1, 4, and 12 months, and again at 4.5 years. Childrens mental health symptoms were assessed in first grade. Results: A cross-sectional analysis revealed that preschoolers exposed to high levels of concurrent maternal stress had elevated cortisol levels; however, a longitudinal analysis revealed that concurrently stressed children with elevated cortisol also had a history of high maternal stress exposure in infancy. Importantly, children exposed only to high levels of concurrent or early stress had cortisol levels that did not significantly differ from those never exposed to stress. Further analysis of the components of stress indicated that maternal depression beginning in infancy was the most potent predictor of childrens cortisol. We also found that preschoolers with high cortisol levels exhibited greater mental health symptoms in first grade. Conclusions: These results link the findings of preclinical studies to humans by showing that exposure to early maternal stress may sensitize childrens pituitary-adrenal responses to subsequent stress exposure.

Investigating the Association of Eye Gaze Pattern and Diagnostic Error in Mammography  

SciTech Connect

The objective of this study was to investigate the association between eye-gaze patterns and the diagnostic accuracy of radiologists for the task of assessing the likelihood of malignancy of mammographic masses. Six radiologists (2 expert breast imagers and 4 Radiology residents of variable training) assessed the likelihood of malignancy of 40 biopsy-proven mammographic masses (20 malignant and 20 benign) on a computer monitor. Eye-gaze data were collected using a commercial remote eye-tracker. Upon reviewing each mass, the radiologists were also asked to provide their assessment regarding the probability of malignancy of the depicted mass as well as a rating regarding the perceived difficulty of the diagnostic task. The collected data were analyzed using established algorithms and various quantitative metrics were extracted to characterize the recorded gaze patterns. The extracted metrics were correlated with the radiologists diagnostic decisions and perceived complexity scores. Results showed that the visual gaze pattern of radiologists varies substantially, not only depending on their experience level but also among individuals. However, some eye gaze metrics appear to correlate with diagnostic error and perceived complexity more consistently. These results suggest that although gaze patterns are generally associated with diagnostic error and the human perceived difficulty of the diagnostic task, there are substantially individual differences that are not explained simply by the experience level of the individual performing the diagnostic task.

Gaze Estimation for Off-Angle Iris Recognition Based on the Biometric Eye Model  

SciTech Connect

Iris recognition is among the highest accuracy biometrics. However, its accuracy relies on controlled high quality capture data and is negatively affected by several factors such as angle, occlusion, and dilation. Non-ideal iris recognition is a new research focus in biometrics. In this paper, we present a gaze estimation method designed for use in an off-angle iris recognition framework based on the ANONYMIZED biometric eye model. Gaze estimation is an important prerequisite step to correct an off-angle iris images. To achieve the accurate frontal reconstruction of an off-angle iris image, we first need to estimate the eye gaze direction from elliptical features of an iris image. Typically additional information such as well-controlled light sources, head mounted equipment, and multiple cameras are not available. Our approach utilizes only the iris and pupil boundary segmentation allowing it to be applicable to all iris capture hardware. We compare the boundaries with a look-up-table generated by using our biologically inspired biometric eye model and find the closest feature point in the look-up-table to estimate the gaze. Based on the results from real images, the proposed method shows effectiveness in gaze estimation accuracy for our biometric eye model with an average error of approximately 3.5 degrees over a 50 degree range.

Bulls-eye commissioning uses interval metering to focus detailed commissioning efforts. This paper concentrates on a single customer and how bulls-eye commissioning can be applied to focus the commissioning process. Significant energy savings were found by using interval data in conjunction with outside air temperature to isolate problems with schedules and in the economizer controls. Evaluation of main meter profiles allows detailed commissioning work to be better focused and more effective without the wait and expense of full commissioning services. Bulls-eye commissioning can be applied on its own or can be coordinated with traditional commissioning. In either case, the main meter profile shows what will directly impact total energy use and the customer's bill.

Eye tracking and gating system for proton therapy of orbital tumors  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Purpose: A new motion-based gated proton therapy for the treatment of orbital tumors using real-time eye-tracking system was designed and evaluated. Methods: We developed our system by image-pattern matching, using a normalized cross-correlation technique with LabVIEW 8.6 and Vision Assistant 8.6 (National Instruments, Austin, TX). To measure the pixel spacing of an image consistently, four different calibration modes such as the point-detection, the edge-detection, the line-measurement, and the manual measurement mode were suggested and used. After these methods were applied to proton therapy, gating was performed, and radiation dose distributions were evaluated. Results: Moving phantom verification measurements resulted in errors of less than 0.1 mm for given ranges of translation. Dosimetric evaluation of the beam-gating system versus nongated treatment delivery with a moving phantom shows that while there was only 0.83 mm growth in lateral penumbra for gated radiotherapy, there was 4.95 mm growth in lateral penumbra in case of nongated exposure. The analysis from clinical results suggests that the average of eye movements depends distinctively on each patient by showing 0.44 mm, 0.45 mm, and 0.86 mm for three patients, respectively. Conclusions: The developed automatic eye-tracking based beam-gating system enabled us to perform high-precision proton radiotherapy of orbital tumors.

Alternative construction of the closed form of the Green's function for the wavized Maxwell fish-eye problem  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the recent paper [J.\\ Phys.\\ A 44 (2011) 065203], we have arrived at the closed-form expression for the Green's function for the partial differential operator describing propagation of a scalar wave in an $N$-dimensional ($N\\geqslant2$) Maxwell fish-eye medium. The derivation has been based on unique transformation properties of the fish-eye wave equation under the hyperspherical inversion. In this communication, we arrive at the same expression for the fish-eye Green's function following a different route. The alternative derivation we present here exploits the fact that there is a close mathematical relationship, through the stereographic projection, between the wavized fish-eye problem in $\\mathbb{R}^{N}$ and the problem of propagation of scalar waves over the surface of the $N$-dimensional hypersphere.

Techniques for measuring atmospheric aerosols at the High Resolution Fly's Eye experiment  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We describe several techniques developed by the High Resolution Fly's Eye experiment for measuring aerosol vertical optical depth, aerosol horizontal attenuation length, and aerosol phase function. The techniques are based on measurements of side-scattered light generated by a steerable ultraviolet laser and collected by an optical detector designed to measure fluorescence light from cosmic-ray air showers. We also present a technique to cross-check the aerosol optical depth measurement using air showers observed in stereo. These methods can be used by future air fluorescence experiments.

Treatment of bovine cancer-eye (and other animal tumors) with heat  

SciTech Connect

Hyperthermia appears to be an excellent technique for the treatment of a variety of animal tumors. While this report has emphasized the application of hyperthermia to bovine cancer-eye, there cannot be serious doubt about the potential for wider applications of the technique. We have collaborated with the Animal Resource Facility at the University of New Mexico in the successful treatment of a variety of tumors in small animals which would not be a particular interest to stockmen, but the program included the successful treatment of a number of sarcoids in horses. This investigation involving heat effects on sarcoids will continue, but early results appear to be promising. Other veterinarians are using the commercial hyperthermia instruments to treat a variety of small-animal tumors; these practitioners are enthusiastic about the results but no data have been published to date. We have treated an equine lid tumor with good results, and others are pursuing investigations in this area. Use of commercial hyperthermia instruments for treatment of any condition other than bovine cancer-eye or similar small tumors on animals cannot be justified. Like other therapeutic techniques, hyperthermia must be applied to appropriate cases and retreatment will be necessary in some instances. (ERB)

Treatment and Prognosis of Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the External Auditory Canal and Middle Ear: A Multi-Institutional Retrospective Review of 87 Patients  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Purpose: To examine the relative roles of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy in the management of patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the external auditory canal and middle ear. Methods and Materials: The records of 87 patients with histologically confirmed squamous cell carcinoma who were treated between 1984 and 2005 were reviewed. Fifty-three patients (61%) were treated with surgery and radiotherapy (S + RT group) and the remaining 34 patients with radiotherapy alone (RT group). Chemotherapy was administered in 34 patients (39%). Results: The 5-year actuarial overall and disease-free survival (DFS) rates for all patients were 55% and 54%, respectively. On univariate analysis, T stage (Stell's classification), treatment modality, and Karnofsky performance status had significant impact on DFS. On multivariate analysis, T stage and treatment modality were significant prognostic factors. Chemotherapy did not influence DFS. The 5-year DFS rate in T1, T2, and T3 patients was 83%, 45%, and 0 in the RT group (p < 0.0001) and 75%, 75%, and 46% in the S + RT group (p = 0.13), respectively. The 5-year DFS rate in patients with negative surgical margins, those with positive margins, and those with macroscopic residual disease was 83%, 55%, and 38%, respectively (p = 0.007). Conclusions: Radical radiotherapy is the treatment of choice for early-stage (T1) diseases, whereas surgery (negative surgical margins if possible) with radiotherapy is recommended as the standard care for advanced (T2-3) disease. Further clarification on the role of chemotherapy is necessary.

Motion-induced radiation from electrons moving in Maxwell's fish-eye  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In \\u{C}erenkov radiation and transition radiation, evanescent wave from motion of charged particles transfers into radiation coherently. However, such dissipative motion-induced radiations require particles to move faster than light in medium or to encounter velocity transition to pump energy. Inspired by a method to detect cloak by observing radiation of a fast-moving electron bunch going through it by Zhang {\\itshape et al.}, we study the generation of electron-induced radiation from electrons' interaction with Maxwell's fish-eye sphere. Our calculation shows that the radiation is due to a combination of \\u{C}erenkov radiation and transition radiation, which may pave the way to investigate new schemes of transferring evanescent wave to radiation.

Eye hazard and glint evaluation for the 5-MW/sub t/ Solar Thermal Test Facility  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Potential eye hazards associated with concentrated reflected light are evaluated for the ERDA 5-MW/sub t/ Solar Thermal Test Facility to be constructed at Sandia Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico. Light intensities and hazardous ranges of single and multiple coincident heliostat beams are evaluated at ground level and in the air space above the facility. Possible long-range and short-range effects of distractive effects of reflected beams are discussed. Also described are certain beam control modifications which were incorporated to minimize the altitudes at which overflying aircraft could encounter unsafe levels. Recommendations are made for further evaluation of intensity excursions during fail-safe shutdown situations, and for experiments to verify analytical models and to assess distractive glint effects.

Typhoon eye trajectory based on a mathematical model: comparing with observational data  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We propose a model based on the primitive system of the Navier-Stokes equations in a bidimensional framework as the $l$ - plane approximation, which allows us to explain the variety of tracks of tropical cyclones (typhoons). Our idea is to construct special analytical solutions with a linear velocity profile for the Navier-Stokes systems. The evidence of the structure of linear velocity near the center of vortex can be proven by the observational data. We study solutions with the linear-velocity property for both barotropic and baroclinic cases and show that they follow the same equations in describing the trajectories of the typhoon eye at the equilibrium state (that relates to the conservative phase of the typhoon dynamics). Moreover, at the equilibrium state, the trajectories can be viewed as a superposition of two circular motions: one has period $2\\pi/l,$ the other one has period $2\\pi/b_0,$ where $l$ is the Coriolis parameter and $b_0$ is the height-averaged vorticity at the center of cyclone. Also, we compare our theoretical trajectories based on initial conditions from the flow with tracks obtained from the observational database. It is worth to mention that under certain conditions our results are still compatible with observational data although we did not truly consider the influence of steering effect. %Note that the %motion of the typhoon eye can not be totally determinated by initial %conditions due to the effect of ambient pressure field ("steering" %effect). Finally, we propose the parameter-adopting method so that one could correct the weather prediction in real time. Examples of our analysis and the use of parameter-adopting method for the historic trajectories are provided.

Performance of "Moth Eye" Anti-Reflective Coatings for Solar Cell Applications  

SciTech Connect

An inexpensive, effective anti-reflective coating (ARC) has been developed at the University of Florida to significantly enhance the absorption of light by silicon in solar cells. This coating has nano-scale features, and its microstructure mimics that of various night active insects (e.g. a moth's eye). It is a square array of pillars, each about 700 nm high and having a diameter of about 300 nm. Samples of silicon having this coating were exposed either to various combinations of either elevated temperature and humidity or to gamma irradiation ({sup 60}Co) at the Savannah River National Laboratory, or to a broad spectrum ultraviolet light and to a 532 nm laser light at the University of Florida. The anti-reflective properties of the coatings were unaffected by any of these environmental stresses, and the microstructure of the coating was also unaffected. In fact, the reflectivity of the gamma irradiated ARC became lower (advantageous for solar cell applications) at wavelengths between 400 and 1000 nm. These results show that this coating is robust and should be tested in actual systems exposed to either weather or a space environment. Structural details of the ARCs were studied to optimize their performance. Square arrays performed better than hexagonal arrays - the natural moth-eye coating is indeed a square array. The optimal depth of the templated nanopillars in the ARC was investigated. A wet etching technology for ARC formation was developed that would be less expensive and much faster than dry etching. Theoretical modeling revealed that dimple arrays should perform better than nipple arrays. A method of fabricating both dimple and nipple arrays having the same length was developed, and the dimple arrays performed better than the nipple arrays, in agreement with the modeling. The commercial viability of the technology is quite feasible, since the technology is scalable and inexpensive. This technology is also compatible with current industrial fabrication of solar cells.

Simulating Dissolution of Intravitreal Triamcinolone Acetonide Suspensions in an Anatomically Accurate Rabbit Eye Model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Purpose A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study examined the impact of particle size on dissolution rate and residence of intravitreal suspension depots of Triamcinolone Acetonide (TAC). Methods A model for the rabbit eye was constructed using insights from high-resolution NMR imaging studies (Sawada 2002). The current model was compared to other published simulations in its ability to predict clearance of various intravitreally injected materials. Suspension depots were constructed explicitly rendering individual particles in various configurations: 4 or 16 mg drug confined to a 100 ?L spherical depot, or 4 mg exploded to fill the entire vitreous. Particle size was reduced systematically in each configuration. The convective diffusion/ dissolution process was simulated using a multiphase model. Results Release rate became independent of particle diameter below a certain value. The size-independent limits occurred for particle diameters ranging from 77 to 428 ?M depending upon the depot configuration. Residence time predicted for the spherical depots in the size-independent limit was comparable to that observed in vivo. Conclusions Since the size-independent limit was several-fold greater than the particle size of commercially available

Severe Dry Eye Syndrome After Radiotherapy for Head-and-Neck Tumors  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Purpose: To investigate the incidence of severe dry eye syndrome (DES) after external beam radiotherapy for head-and-neck cancer and its dependence on the parameters relevant to external beam radiotherapy. Methods and Materials: The present retrospective study included 78 patients treated for primary extracranial head-and-neck tumors between 1965 and 2000, whose lacrimal apparatus/entire globe was exposed to fractionated external beam radiotherapy. The dose received by the major lacrimal gland was used for analysis. The end point of the present study was the ophthalmologic diagnosis of severe DES leading to vision compromise. Results: Of the 78 patients, 40 developed severe DES leading to visual compromise. The incidence of DES increased steadily from 6% at 35-39.99 Gy to 50% at 45-49.99 Gy and 90% at 60-64.99 Gy. With a mean of 0.9 years (range, 1 month to 3 years), the latency of DES was observed to be a function of the total dose and the dose per fraction. On univariate and multivariate analysis, the total dose (p =}60 Gy. A logistic normal tissue complication probability model fit to our data obtained a dose of 34 and 38 Gy corresponding to a 5% and 10% incidence of DES. Conclusion: With a dose of 34 Gy corresponding to a 5% incidence of DES, the risk of severe DES increased, and the latency decreased with an increase in the total dose and dose per fraction to the lacrimal gland. The effect of chemoradiotherapy and hyperfractionation on the risk of DES needs additional investigation.

Multimedia Resources, including the CMS Eye, from the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) Experiment at CERN  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of two large general-purpose particle physics detectors built on the proton-proton Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland and France. The CMS detector is located in an underground cavern at Cessy in France. The CMS detector will study many aspects of proton collisions at 14 TeV, the center-of-mass energy of the LHC particle accelerator. [from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compact_Muon_Solenoid]

The US CMS collaboration, with 48 institutions, 420 Ph.D. physicists, over 100 graduate students, and nearly 200 engineers, technicians, and computer scientists is the largest national group in the CMS collaboration. US groups have made significant contributions to nearly every aspect of the detector throughout all phases including construction, installation and preparation for data-taking. The US collaboration also made major contributions to the construction and operation of the computing facilities needed to analyze the unprecedented amount of data to be generated by CMS. This work includes the software that allows physicists to operate the CMS detector, reconstruct the data, analyze it and extract new physics.

The CMS media website from CERN provides images, videos, presentations, and the CMS Eye, a system of webcams looking into the underground cavern at Cessy, into the control room, and even out of the window of the control room at the village of Cessy and the Jura Mountains. Many event displays are available in the image collections, as well as the CMS Photo Book covering 1998 2008 when CMS was being assembled, installed, and commissioned.

BEDVH--A method for evaluating biologically effective dose volume histograms: Application to eye plaque brachytherapy implants  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Purpose: A method is introduced to examine the influence of implant duration T, radionuclide, and radiobiological parameters on the biologically effective dose (BED) throughout the entire volume of regions of interest for episcleral brachytherapy using available radionuclides. This method is employed to evaluate a particular eye plaque brachytherapy implant in a radiobiological context. Methods: A reference eye geometry and 16 mm COMS eye plaque loaded with {sup 103}Pd, {sup 125}I, or {sup 131}Cs sources were examined with dose distributions accounting for plaque heterogeneities. For a standardized 7 day implant, doses to 90% of the tumor volume ( {sub TUMOR}D{sub 90}) and 10% of the organ at risk volumes ( {sub OAR}D{sub 10}) were calculated. The BED equation from Dale and Jones and published {alpha}/{beta} and {mu} parameters were incorporated with dose volume histograms (DVHs) for various T values such as T = 7 days (i.e., {sub TUMOR} {sup 7}BED{sub 10} and {sub OAR} {sup 7}BED{sub 10}). By calculating BED throughout the volumes, biologically effective dose volume histograms (BEDVHs) were developed for tumor and OARs. Influence of T, radionuclide choice, and radiobiological parameters on {sub TUMOR}BEDVH and {sub OAR}BEDVH were examined. The nominal dose was scaled for shorter implants to achieve biological equivalence. Results: {sub TUMOR}D{sub 90} values were 102, 112, and 110 Gy for {sup 103}Pd, {sup 125}I, and {sup 131}Cs, respectively. Corresponding {sub TUMOR} {sup 7}BED{sub 10} values were 124, 140, and 138 Gy, respectively. As T decreased from 7 to 0.01 days, the isobiologically effective prescription dose decreased by a factor of three. As expected, {sub TUMOR} {sup 7}BEDVH did not significantly change as a function of radionuclide half-life but varied by 10% due to radionuclide dose distribution. Variations in reported radiobiological parameters caused {sub TUMOR} {sup 7}BED{sub 10} to deviate by up to 46%. Over the range of {sub OAR}{alpha}/{beta} values, {sub OAR} {sup 7}BED{sub 10} varied by up to 41%, 3.1%, and 1.4% for the lens, optic nerve, and lacrimal gland, respectively. Conclusions: BEDVH permits evaluation of the relative biological effectiveness for brachytherapy implants. For eye plaques, {sub TUMOR}BEDVH and {sub OAR}BEDVH were sensitive to implant duration, which may be manipulated to affect outcomes.

The present study covers a 22-year period (19882009), including the war period (19921995), and we retrospectively collected data on a total of 108 316 liveborn infants and their mothers from three different socioeconomic periods: before (19881991), during (19921995), and after the war (1996 2009). Association between incidence rate of low birth weight in liveborn infants and maternal sociodemographic status were determined for each study period. Results. There were 23 194 live births in the prewar, 18 302 during the war, and 66 820 in the postwar period. Among the liveborn infants born during the war, 1373 (7.5%) had birth weight of <2500 g, which is significantly more in comparison with 851 (3.6%) liveborn infants in this birth weight group born before and 1864 (2.8%) after the war. We found the number of examinations during pregnancy was 1.8 per pregnant woman in the war period, which was low in comparison with the number of examinations before (4.6 per pregnant woman) and after (7.1 per pregnant woman) the war (P <.001 for both). Prewar perinatal mortality LBW infants of 6.2 per 1000 live births increased to 10.8 per 1000 live births during the war (P <.001), but after the war, perinatal mortality LBW infants (5.2) and early neonatal mortality (2.4) decreased.

Lens of Eye Dose Limit Changes: Current Status of the Potential Regulatory Changes and Possible Effects on Radiation Protection Programs at Nuclear Power Plants  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Recent research suggests that the threshold for cataract formation as a result of exposure to radiation could be lower than previously considered. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) is now recommending a dose limit for the lens of the eye of an average of 20 mSv (2 rem) per year, equivalent to their current recommendation for Total Effective Dose Equivalent (TEDE). The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering reducing the lens of the eye dose limit to 50 mSv/yr ...

Radiobiology for eye plaque brachytherapy and evaluation of implant duration and radionuclide choice using an objective function  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Purpose: Clinical optimization of Collaborative Ocular Melanoma Study (COMS) eye plaque brachytherapy is currently limited to tumor coverage, consensus prescription dosage, and dose calculations to ocular structures. The biologically effective dose (BED) of temporary brachytherapy treatments is a function of both chosen radionuclide R and implant duration T. This study endeavored to evaluate BED delivered to the tumor volume and surrounding ocular structures as a function of plaque position P, prescription dose, R, and T. Methods: Plaque-heterogeneity-corrected dose distributions were generated with MCNP5 for the range of currently available COMS plaques loaded with sources using three available low-energy radionuclides. These physical dose distributions were imported into the PINNACLE{sup 3} treatment planning system using the TG-43 hybrid technique and used to generate dose volume histograms for a T = 7 day implant within a reference eye geometry including the ciliary body, cornea, eyelid, foveola, lacrimal gland, lens, optic disc, optic nerve, retina, and tumor at eight standard treatment positions. The equation of Dale and Jones was employed to create biologically effective dose volume histograms (BEDVHs), allowing for BED volumetric analysis of all ROIs. Isobiologically effective prescription doses were calculated for T = 5 days down to 0.01 days, with BEDVHs subsequently generated for all ROIs using correspondingly reduced prescription doses. Objective functions were created to evaluate the BEDVHs as a function of R and T. These objective functions are mathematically accessible and sufficiently general to be applied to temporary or permanent brachytherapy implants for a variety of disease sites. Results: Reducing T from 7 to 0.01 days for a 10 mm plaque produced an average BED benefit of 26%, 20%, and 17% for {sup 103}Pd, {sup 125}I, and {sup 131}Cs, respectively, for all P; 16 and 22 mm plaque results were more position-dependent. {sup 103}Pd produced a 16%-35% BED benefit over {sup 125}I, whereas {sup 131}Cs produced a 3%-7% BED detriment, independent of P, T, and plaque size. Additionally, corresponding organ at risk physical doses were lowest using {sup 103}Pd in all circumstances. Conclusions: The results suggest that shorter implant durations may correlate with more favorable outcomes compared to 7 day implants when treating small or medium intraocular lesions. The data also indicate that implant duration may be safely reduced if the prescription physical dose is likewise diminished and that {sup 103}Pd offers a substantial radiobiological benefit over {sup 125}I and {sup 131}Cs irrespective of plaque position, implant duration, and tumor size.

Potential effects of maternal contribution on egg and larva population dynamics of striped bass: Integrated individual-based model and directed field sampling  

SciTech Connect

We have used a bioenergetically-driven, individual-based model (IBM) of striped bass as a framework for synthesizing available information on population biology and quantifying, in a relative sense, factors that potentially affect year class success. The IBM has been configured to simulate environmental conditions experienced by several striped bass populations; i.e., in the Potomac River, MD; in Hudson River, NY; in the Santee-Cooper River System, SC, and; in the San Joaquin-Sacramento River System CA. These sites represent extremes in the geographic distribution and thus, environmental variability of striped bass spawning. At each location, data describing the physio-chemical and biological characteristics of the spawning population and nursery area are being collected and synthesized by means of a prioritized, directed field sampling program that is organized by the individual-based recruitment model. Here, we employ the striped bass IBM configured for the Potomac River, MD from spawning into the larval period to evaluate the potential for maternal contribution to affect larva survival and growth. Model simulations in which the size distribution and spawning day of females are altered indicate that larva survival is enhanced (3.3-fold increase) when a high fraction of females in the spawning population are large. Larva stage duration also is less ({bar X} = 18.4 d and 22.2 d) when large and small females, respectively, are mothers in simulations. Although inconclusive, these preliminary results for Potomac River striped bass suggest that the effects of female size, timing of spawning nad maternal contribution on recruitment dynamics potentially are important and illustrate our approach to the study of recruitment in striped bass. We hope to use the model, field collections and management alternatives that vary from site to site, in an iterative manner for some time to come. 54 refs., 4 figs., 1 tab.

A DETAILED MORPHO-KINEMATIC MODEL OF THE ESKIMO, NGC 2392: A UNIFYING VIEW WITH THE CAT'S EYE AND SATURN PLANETARY NEBULAE  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The three-dimensional and kinematic structure of the Eskimo nebula, NGC 2392, has been notoriously difficult to interpret in detail given its complex morphology, multiple kinematic components and its nearly pole-on orientation along the line of sight. We present a comprehensive, spatially resolved, high-resolution, long-slit spectroscopic mapping of the Eskimo planetary nebula. The data consist of 21 spatially resolved, long-slit echelle spectra tightly spaced over the Eskimo and along its bipolar jets. This data set allows us to construct a velocity-resolved [N II] channel map of the nebula with a resolution of 10 km s{sup -1} that disentangles its different kinematic components. The spectroscopic information is combined with Hubble Space Telescope images to construct a detailed three-dimensional morpho-kinematic model of the Eskimo using the code SHAPE. With this model we demonstrate that the Eskimo is a close analog to the Saturn and the Cat's Eye nebulae, but rotated 90 Degree-Sign to the line of sight. Furthermore, we show that the main characteristics of our model apply to the general properties of the group of elliptical planetary nebulae with ansae or FLIERS, once the orientation is considered. We conclude that this kind of nebula belongs to a class with a complex common evolutionary sequence of events.

LOOKING DEEP INTO THE CAT'S EYE: STRUCTURE AND ROTATION IN THE FAST WIND OF THE PN CENTRAL STAR OF NGC 6543  

SciTech Connect

We present HST/STIS time-series spectroscopy of the central star of the 'Cat's Eye' planetary nebula NGC 6543. Intensive monitoring of the UV lines over a 5.8 hr period reveals well-defined details of large-scale structure in the fast wind, which are exploited to provide new constraints on the rotation rate of the central star. We derive characteristics of the line profile variability that support a physical origin due to corotating interaction regions (CIRs) that are rooted at the stellar surface. The recurrence time of the observed spectral signatures of the CIRs is used to estimate the rotation period of the central star and, adopting a radius between 0.3 and 0.6 R{sub Sun} constrains the rotational velocity to the range 54 km s{sup -1} {<=} v{sub rot} {<=} 108 km s{sup -1}. The implications of these results for single star evolution are discussed based on models calculated here for low-mass stars. Our models predict a subsurface convective layer in NGC 6543 which we argue to be causally connected to the occurrence of structure in the fast wind.

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract The use of Fish eye scoping has been introduced to reduce the overhead of the OLSR routing protocol. This simple method is based on reducing the scope (TTL) of some topology updates, thus giving routers a precise view of their close neighborhood and a more and more approximate view of farther nodes. Fish Eye OLSR (OFLSR) has been showed to have excellent scaling properties and low network overhead. However, if deployed in relatively sparse networks, this scoping limitation of topology updates can result in long living routing loops, thus limiting the potential applications of such mechanisms in some practical wireless mesh networks. In this paper, we address the transient mini-loop problem due to fisheye scoping. We first analyze the occurrence of mini-loops. We discuss potential solutions and propose a pragmatic and distributed off-line heuristic, which allows each router to

Chrysler eyes waste-fired powerhouse  

SciTech Connect

The Chrysler Corporation is exploring the feasibility of building a solid-waste-fired powerhouse rather than spend up to $60 million converting two existing powerhouses to burn coal and still meet the Environmental Protection Agency's high emission standards for the Detroit area. Neither construction nor conversion could be completed in time to avoid a new gas tax. Chrysler is converting powerhouses in areas outside Detroit. The powerhouse under consideration will produce steam from all Chrysler-produced solid waste to supply eight plants and allow the two current powerhouses to be shut down. Chrysler is also converting boilers back to coal and hopes to attain the 99 percent emission cut required without too great an expenditure. Some coal-handling equipment was retained after an earlier conversion to gas. Chrysler presently uses more natural gas than its competitors (59 percent compared to 38 percent) because of its policy of using clean, cheap, and efficient fuels. An energy-saving change underway at Chrysler is the replacement of precision-forming parts for hot-forging. Chrysler's policy of only approving capital expenditures that have two-year paybacks is hampering some conservation projects. (DCK)

Keeping an eye on power system dynamics  

SciTech Connect

An interconnected power system is one of the largest and most complex of human achievements. It is maintained in a stable dynamic state only by tight control and protection, plus intelligent and diligent operation. Operating details are taken for granted by the general public; only when some catastrophic failure takes place is power system stability seen as newsworthy. Faults occur on power systems, most often through natural phenomena beyond human control. However, a well designed system will, for the most common faults, recover automatically and continue power delivery with very little inconvenience to its customers. This level of performance is achieved at a high cost in terms of manpower and equipment. In the future, the market economy is likely to force power systems much closer to their limits of stable operation, and operating decisions will have to be based on accurate, online system information and simulations rather than the current practice of extensive offline simulation of a comprehensive set of possible system operating conditions.

Impacts of Maternal Obesity on Metabolic Profiles in Postpartum Ewes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This study determined the effects of gestational obesity on the long-term metabolic status of the mother and if obesity management during or after pregnancy could attenuate these effects. At 120 days prior to estrus, 8 ewes received 100 percent of NRC nutrient requirements (control group) and 24 ewes had free access to feed (obesity induction). Beginning on day 42 of gestation, 8 obese ewes were restricted to 65 percent of NRC nutrient requirements. Following parturition, controls and all but one group of obese ewes were fed 100 percent of NRC nutrient requirements. At postpartum days (PPD) 1 and 150, glucose tolerance tests were administered to ewes. At both PPD1 and PPD150, obesity resulted in insulin resistance, impairment of whole-body glucose utilization, increased levels of circulating leptin, and altered profiles of amino acids in plasma; however, these effects were diminished in ewes receiving obesity management during or after gestation. Additionally at PPD150, obesity increased the circulating levels of ammonia and urea in ewes, which was prevented by realimentation to 100 percent NRC requirements. These results indicate that weight reduction in obese dams during pregnancy or after parturition can beneficially ameliorate the adverse effects of gestational obesity on the mother.

Pulmonary imaging in pregnancy. Maternal risk and fetal dosimetry  

SciTech Connect

A Tc-99m macroaggregated albumin (MAA) perfusion lung scan and a Tc-99m DTPA aerosol ventilation scan were performed for suspicion of pulmonary embolism (PE) in a patient who was ten weeks pregnant. There was considerable reluctance on the part of the obstetricians to permit this study. Standard MIRD dose estimates to the fetus were performed, which showed a maximum fetal exposure of about 50 mrem. It was concluded that the risk to mother and fetus from undiagnosed and untreated PE is much greater than the negligible risk to the fetus from the radiation exposure; fear of fetal radiation damage should not be a deterrent to performing these scans.

Contribution of maternal radionuclide burdens to prenatal radiation doses  

SciTech Connect

This report describes approaches to calculating and expressing radiation doses to the embryo/fetus from internal radionuclides. Information was obtained for selected, occupationally significant radioelements that provide a spectrum of metabolic and dosimetric characteristics. Evaluations are also presented for inhaled inert gases and for selected radiopharmaceuticals. Fractional placental transfer and/or ratios of concentration in the embryo/fetus to that in the woman were calculated for these materials. The ratios were integrated with data from biokinetic transfer models to estimate radioactivity levels in the embryo/fetus as a function of stage of pregnancy and time after entry into the transfer compartment or blood of the pregnant woman. These results are given as tables of deposition and retention in the embryo/fetus as a function of gestational age at exposure and elapsed time following exposure. Methodologies described by MIRD were extended to formalize and describe details for calculating radiation absorbed doses to the embryo/fetus. Calculations were performed using a model situation that assumed a single injection of 1 {mu}Ci into a woman`s blood; independent calculations were performed for administration at successive months of pregnancy. Gestational -stage-dependent dosimetric tabulations are given together with tables of correlations and relationships. Generalized surrogate dose factors and categorizations are provided in the report to provide for use in operational radiological protection situations. These approaches to calculation yield radiation absorbed doses that can be converted to dose equivalent by multiplication by quality factor. Dose equivalent is the most common quantity for stating prenatal dose limits in the United States and is appropriate for the types of effect that are usually associated with prenatal exposure. If it is desired to obtain alternatives for other purposes, this value can be multiplied by appropriate weighting factors.

Eyes Wide Open - Optimising Cosmological Surveys in a Crowded Market  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Optimising the major next-generation cosmological surveys (such as {\\em SNAP, KAOS etc...}) is a key problem given our ignorance of the physics underlying cosmic acceleration and the plethora of surveys planned. We propose a Bayesian design framework which (1) maximises the discrimination power of a survey without assuming any underlying dark energy model, (2) finds the best niche survey geometry given current data and future competing experiments, (3) maximises the cross-section for serendipitous discoveries and (4) can be adapted to answer specific questions (such as `is dark energy dynamical?'). Integrated Parameter Space Optimisation (IPSO) is a design framework that integrates projected parameter errors over an entire dark energy parameter space and then extremises a figure of merit (such as Shannon entropy gain which we show is stable to off-diagonal covariance matrix perturbations) as a function of survey parameters using analytical, grid or MCMC techniques. We discuss examples where the optimisation can be performed analytically. IPSO is thus a general, model-independent and scalable framework that allows us to appropriately use prior information to design the best possible surveys.

Rail deregulation eyed for impact on coal rates  

SciTech Connect

Captive shippers who depend on a single line to move their coal supplies want protection written into any railroad deregulation legislation. Debate over this issue is expected to be heated. The Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC), meanwhile, is looking more favorably at the problems of utilities and accepts a compromise measure that sets a rate hike level which would trigger an ICC investigation. Debate in Congressional Committees will focus on the lack of competition in coal shipment and the impact this will have on the customers of coal-fired power plants. Long-term agreements are suggested as a way to limit regulation and allow the Federal government to focus on helping the railroads become more efficient. The legislative action was prompted by an ICC decision to roll back railroad freight rates paid by two utilities and a steel company. (DCK)

AN EAR FOR YOUR QUOTES PATENT CITATIONS AND THE SIZE OF PATENTED INVENTIONS, EVIDENCE FROM HYBRID CORN  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper links applications for utility patents between 1985 and 2005 with field trial data on improvements in yields to examine whether citations are a good measure for the size of the inventive step, measured as improvements in yield. These data indicate that a large and robust correlation between citations and the size of improvements. In the most conservative estimates, a 10 percent increase in yields is associated with 1.7 additional citations, implying a 24 percent increase. A small number of highly cited patents appear to be cited mostly to establish the patentability of corn hybrids. Estimates that exclude these patents indicate that a 10 percent in yields is associated with 1.2 additional citations, implying a 34 percent increase. Analyses of claims and renewal data as alternative measures of patent value suggest that citations are in fact the most informative measure for the size of patented inventions.

Seeing the sky through Hubble's eye: The COSMOS SkyWalker  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Large, high-resolution space-based imaging surveys produce a volume of data that is difficult to present to the public in a comprehensible way. While megapixel-sized images can still be printed out or downloaded via the World Wide Web, this is no longer feasible for images with 10^9 pixels (e.g., the Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Surveys [ACS] images of the Galaxy Evolution from Morphology and SEDs [GEMS] project) or even 10^10 pixels (for the ACS Cosmic Evolution Survey [COSMOS]). We present a Web-based utility called the COSMOS SkyWalker that allows viewing of the huge ACS image data set, even through slow Internet connections. Using standard HTML and JavaScript, the application successively loads only those portions of the image at a time that are currently being viewed on the screen. The user can move within the image by using the mouse or interacting with an overview image. Using an astrometrically registered image for the COSMOS SkyWalker allows the display of calibrated world coordinates for use in science. The SkyWalker "technique" can be applied to other data sets. This requires some customization, notably the slicing up of a data set into small (e.g., 256^2 pixel) subimages. An advantage of the SkyWalker is the use of standard Web browser components; thus, it requires no installation of any software and can therefore be viewed by anyone across many operating systems.

Viewing the Evolution of Massive Star Formation through FIR/Sub-mm/mm Eyes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper, we present an overview of our method of constructing a family of models for the far-infrared, sub-millimeter, and millimeter (FIR/sub-mm/mm) line emission of molecular and atomic gas surrounding massive star formation in starburst galaxies. We show the results of a case study, an expanding supershell centered around a massive star cluster with a particular set of input parameters and its application to nearby starburst galaxy M 82. This set of models can be used not only to interpret the observations of FIR/sub-mm/mm line emission from molecular and atomic gas, but also to investigate the physical environment and the initial cloud conditions in massive star forming regions as well as the ages of the starbursts through simulations for a wide range of input parameters. Finally, we discuss limitations of our models, and outline future work.

Clouds Height and Aerosol Dynamic Monitoring by Micro Pulse Backscattering Eye-safe Lidar  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Real-time, clouds height monitoring, attenuation length measurement and remote atmospheric homogeneity sensing by micro pulse Lidar (MPL) is proposed for use together with UV-laser slant-path extinction measurements in the Pierre Auger experiment. The goal of the research reported here is to determine the feasibility of such a sensor for quatitative measurements during an experiment in autonomous mode regardless of weather. Preliminary results of an atmosphere sensing at the Pierre Auger site in Nov.1998 by micro pulse Lidar are presented and discussed. 1 Introduction The long term measurements of the atmospheric turbidity, meteovisibility, haze optical thickness and cloud base height are very important for the surface radiation budget and for climate modeling in general. These data are necessary both, for scientic use, as in the detection of extremely high energy cosmic rays by the uorescence technique [1], and for applied environmental monitoring, as in air trac control for...

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.

Appendix Appendix Name: Arthur K Gum Age: N/A Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: Why do we have an appendix when we can live fine without it? Replies: You are assuming that the human body was designed purposely and cleverly. Not everyone believes this. There are a number of dumb and useless features about the human body. For example, the blood vessels supplying the retina (sensitive back surface) of the eye pass *in front* of the retina, thus obstructing our vision. People choke to death because both breath and food go down the same pipe. Sound vibrates the eardrum, which moves the delicate set of tiny bones in the middle ear (susceptible to infection and damage), which do nothing more than vibrate another, inner "eardrum" on the cochlea. Why not dispense with the in-between stuff?

But they are only 1/300 of an inch in diameter and develop into young which are born and nursed like other mammals. Molly Cottontail has already had the first of the three or four litters she produces per year in this climate. Each litter numbers from 4 to 6 little rabbits born in a nest which is a shallow hole dug in the ground by the mother, usually in an open field, padded with grass and with fur which she plucks from herself. Their ears are small at first, their eyes are closed, and they have only a coat of fuzz. After about a month they leave the nest and soon are shifting for themselves.

Importance of Measurement: The Impact of Power Quality in Energy Efficiency  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

To implement sustainable and green initiatives in a building it is vital to have a means of measuring and verifying its performance. This is done by the introduction of intelligent utility and energy metering to the facility that would become its eyes and ears. The principle is you cannot control what you cannot measure. Looking closer at the power side, the inefficiencies caused by power quality issues such as power factor and harmonics have often been easily overlooked due to the traditional focus on equipment performance optimisation, rather than on the quality of power which is essential for the operation of any electrical equipment. This paper analyses power factor and harmonics problem areas and offers practical approaches for improvements.

W Hya through the eye of Odin Satellite observations of circumstellar submillimetre H$_2$O line emission  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present Odin observations of the AGB star W Hya in the ground-state transition of ortho-H2O, 1(10)-1(01), at 557GHz. The line is clearly of circumstellar origin. Radiative transfer modelling of the water lines observed by Odin and ISO results in a mass-loss rate of (2.5 +/- 0.5)E-7 Msol/yr, and a circumstellar H2O abundance of (2.0 +/- 1.0)E-3. The inferred mass-loss rate is consistent with that obtained from modelling the circumstellar CO radio line emission, and also with that obtained from the dust emission modelling combined with a dynamical model for the outflow. The very high water abundance, higher than the cosmic oxygen abundance, can be explained by invoking an injection of excess water from evaporating icy bodies in the system. The required extra mass of water is quite small, on the order of ~ 0.1 earth mass.

Eisenbeis, Supt. of Conservation DEER MICE AND WHITE-FOOTED MICE At night, sitting on a wooded shore, waiting for fish to bite or quietly gazing into the coals of a camp fire, you often become aware of mysterious small noises nearby in the darkness. Sometimes it is only a faint scratching on a tree trunk, or a rustling in the fallen leaves. But, again, you may hear a tiny drumming sound or a musical buzzing hum. Spooks? No. The best guess is that you have disturbed the night life of a wild mouse. He makes the drumming sound by rapidly tapping a dry leaf or hollow stem with his front feet. Unlike house mice, his voice is more of a song than a mere squeak. If you catch him in the beam of a flashlight you see an alert animal face with big ears, large black bulging eyes, and a beautiful coat -- rich brown above with snow-white underparts and feet. From these prominent characteristics came the common names of our two local species, the Deer Mouse and the White-footed Mouse.

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.

Institute for Scientific Computing Research Fiscal Year 2002 Annual Report  

SciTech Connect

The Institute for Scientific Computing Research (ISCR) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is jointly administered by the Computing Applications and Research Department (CAR) and the University Relations Program (URP), and this joint relationship expresses its mission. An extensively externally networked ISCR cost-effectively expands the level and scope of national computational science expertise available to the Laboratory through CAR. The URP, with its infrastructure for managing six institutes and numerous educational programs at LLNL, assumes much of the logistical burden that is unavoidable in bridging the Laboratory's internal computational research environment with that of the academic community. As large-scale simulations on the parallel platforms of DOE's Advanced Simulation and Computing (ASCI) become increasingly important to the overall mission of LLNL, the role of the ISCR expands in importance, accordingly. Relying primarily on non-permanent staffing, the ISCR complements Laboratory research in areas of the computer and information sciences that are needed at the frontier of Laboratory missions. The ISCR strives to be the ''eyes and ears'' of the Laboratory in the computer and information sciences, in keeping the Laboratory aware of and connected to important external advances. It also attempts to be ''feet and hands, in carrying those advances into the Laboratory and incorporating them into practice. In addition to conducting research, the ISCR provides continuing education opportunities to Laboratory personnel, in the form of on-site workshops taught by experts on novel software or hardware technologies. The ISCR also seeks to influence the research community external to the Laboratory to pursue Laboratory-related interests and to train the workforce that will be required by the Laboratory. Part of the performance of this function is interpreting to the external community appropriate (unclassified) aspects of the Laboratory's own contributions to the computer and information sciences--contributions that its unique mission and unique resources give it a unique opportunity and responsibility to make. Of the three principal means of packaging scientific ideas for transfer--people, papers, and software--experience suggests that the most effective means is people. The programs of the ISCR are therefore people-intensive. Finally, the ISCR, together with CAR, confers an organizational identity on the burgeoning computer and information sciences research activity at LLNL and serves as a point of contact within the Laboratory for computer and information scientists from outside.

Hurricane passes from CLOUDSAT Hurricane passes from CLOUDSAT * Overall, CloudSat gives an unparalleled view of a slice through the eye of a hurricane and a cross section of precipitation through the hurricane . * Although there are only 32 overpasses of the earth each day, CloudSat has made seven eye hits of hurricanes and seven eye wall grazes. A statistical analysis predicts that one would expect 9 eye hits for a 29 hurricane season. The common features of the eye such as the spiral rainbands and the stadium structure of the eye wall boundary help identify a pass near the eye. There is very heavy rain in the eyewall, so much so that the radar return is completely absorbed several km above the ocean surface at a rainfall rate of 30 mm/hr. This also helps to identify an eye wall graze.

Dog Teeth and Hearing

Dog Teeth and Hearing Dog Teeth and Hearing Name: Chad Status: other Grade: 9-12 Location: Outside U.S. Country: Canada Date: Spring 2011 Question: Can a bad tooth problem, infection (we've had several teeth pulled) cause a problem with deafness in a dog ? We have a snoodle 14 years old, but still in other wise good health. Replies: Hi Chad, Sorry to hear about Snoodle's hearing and dental problems. Deafness in an older dog is not uncommon and it would not likely be due to any tooth related problems. A severe tooth infection that extends or penetrates through the bone into the ear canal would be very rare and you would see very obvious symptoms in the ear. If your vet has examined Snoodle and there were no obvious problems related to the ear canal, then I would attribute the hearing loss to an age related change. I hope this helps.

10-1 10-1 10. GLOSSARY Term Definition "A-weighted" Scale Assigns a weight to sound frequencies that is related to how sensitive the human ear is to each sound frequency. Frequencies that are less sensitive to the human ear are weighted less than those for which the ear is more sensitive. A-weighted measurements indicate the potential damage a noise might cause to hearing. Ambient Noise Background noise associated with a given environment. Ambient noise is typically formed as a composite of sounds from many near and far sources, with no particular dominant sound. Aquifer Body of rock or sediment that is capable of transmitting groundwater and yielding sufficient quantities of water to wells or springs. Arterial Highway Highway generally characterized by its ability to quickly move a relatively large

Genetic Variants of NPAT-ATM and AURKA are Associated With an Early Adverse Reaction in the Gastrointestinal Tract of Patients With Cervical Cancer Treated With Pelvic Radiation Therapy  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: This study sought to associate polymorphisms in genes related to cell cycle regulation or genome maintenance with radiotherapy (RT)-induced an early adverse reaction (EAR) in patients with cervical cancer. Methods and Materials: This study enrolled 243 cervical cancer patients who were treated with pelvic RT. An early gastrointestinal reaction was graded using the National Cancer Institute Common Toxicity Criteria, version 2. Clinical factors of the enrolled patients were analyzed, and 208 patients were grouped for genetic analysis according to their EAR (Grade {<=}1, n = 150; Grade {>=}2, n = 58). Genomic DNA was genotyped, and association with the risk of EAR for 44 functional single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of 19 candidate genes was assessed by single-locus, haplotype, and multilocus analyses. Results: Our analysis revealed two haplotypes to be associated with an increased risk of EAR. The first, comprising rs625120C, rs189037T, rs228589A, and rs183460G, is located between the 5' ends of NPAT and ATM (OR = 1.86; 95% CI, 1.21-2.87), whereas the second is located in the AURKA gene and comprises rs2273535A and rs1047972G (OR = 1.75; 95% CI, 1.10-2.78). A third haplotype, rs2273535T and rs1047972A in AURKA, was associated with a reduced EAR risk (OR = 0.42; 95% CI, 0.20-0.89). The risk of EAR was significantly higher among patients with both risk diplotypes than in those possessing the other diplotypes (OR = 3.24; 95% CI, 1.52-6.92). Conclusions: Individual radiosensitivity of intestine may be determined by haplotypes in the NPAT-ATM and AURKA genes. These variants should be explored in larger association studies in cervical cancer patients.

Eye of Hurricane Eye of Hurricane Name: Xinyi Status: student Grade: 9-12 Location: IL Country: China Date: Spring 2011 Question: Why is the eye of a hurricane so calm? A lot of videos say that it' i because the rising air cools off and sinks down in the eye, but if it is true, I think the eye should have a high pressure, not the lowest pressure of a hurricane. Replies: Cold air is heavier than Hot air and will fall relative to the Hot Air. Hot air will rise relative to Cold air. The eye of a hurricane is calm because the storms rotate around it. The highest winds of the hurricane are in the wall of the eye which is very distinct. The hurricane derives its energy from the relatively hot surface temperature of the sea. The humidity in the hot rising air feeds the heavy rainstorms that form the hurricane. The rising hot, moist air of a hurricane is a counter clockwise rotating cyclone that creates a low pressure area in the eye. So the lowest air pressure point of a hurricane are in the eye

Acoustically Induced Streaming Flows near a Model Cod Otolith and their Potential Implications for Fish Hearing  

SciTech Connect

The ears of fishes are remarkable sensors for the small acoustic disturbances associated with underwater sound. For example, each ear of the Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) has three dense bony bodies (otoliths) surrounded by fluid and tissue, and detects sounds at frequencies from 30 to 500 Hz. Atlantic cod have also been shown to localize sounds. However, how their ears perform these functions is not fully understood. Steady streaming, or time-independent, flows near a 350% scale model Atlantic cod otolith immersed in a viscous fluid were studied to determine if these fluid flows contain acoustically relevant information that could be detected by the ear s sensory hair cells. The otolith was oscillated sinusoidally at various orientations at frequencies of 8 24 Hz, corresponding to an actual frequency range of 280 830 Hz. Phaselocked particle pathline visualizations of the resulting flows give velocity, vorticity, and rate of strain fields over a single plane of this mainly two-dimensional flow. Although the streaming flows contain acoustically relevant information, the displacements due to these flows are likely too small to explain Atlantic cod hearing abilities near threshold. The results, however, may suggest a possible mechanism for detection of ultrasound in some fish species.

We learned why cats' eyes seem to glow in the dark. The back of each cat's eyes has mirror-like cells that reflect light. We used a coffee can and some construction paper to make a model of a cat's eye. We made the pupil oval shaped like a cat's eye. We shone a flashlight in the pupil and we saw the reflection. A book that we read said that nocturnal hungers mostly have long, oval-shaped pupils and daytime hunters have round pupils. We w want to know what difference that makes to an animal in being able to see.j Why do daytime hunters have round pupils and nocturnal hunters have oval shaped pupils. Do you know why?

Cow Eye Restoration Cow Eye Restoration Name: Kendall Status: student Grade: 6-8 Location: TX Country: USA Date: Fall 2011 Question: I'm working on a science fair experiment. I need help with my science fair question. My question is" Can you restore a cows eyes lens after it has been removed from the eye for a few days?" What i was trying to ask in my question is 'is there a type of material of chemical that can clear the lens even after it has become cloudy. Replies: Kendall, That is an interesting question. A lens can be removed from the eye, but typically a lens cannot be cleared. The changes to the internal structure of the lens are permanent, thus making it cloudy. A new, artificial lens could be put in if there was one the right size for a cow eye, just like in human cataract surgery. There are other conditions that can cause cloudiness of the eye, but that usually involves the fluid in the front of the lens. These conditions can sometimes be treated medically.

Owl Predators Owl Predators Name: Mia Status: student Grade: K-3 Location: MN Country: USA Date: Winter 2011-2012 Question: What are the predators of a owl? Replies: Mia: Our largest adult owls have few predators. Smaller owls may be prey of other owls, long-eared owls are sometimes eaten by great horned owls, for example. Ground nesting owls, like short-eared owls, and especially nestlings, may be hunted by many predators, coyotes and other hawks and owls most likely. Nestlings of all birds, including owls may be hunted by other birds, raccoons, snakes and other animals that can climb trees. J. Elliott Hi Mia Predators of owls include: Opossums Racoons Hawks, Eagles and other raptors Other owls House cats Snakes that raid nests Accidents such as falling out of a nest, colliding with a tree, and electric power lines also contribute to owl mortality.
