Abstract: No abstract available. Article truncated at 150 words. Dr. Mathew was away this month and we reviewed 4 articles.Kelly HW, Sternberg AL, Lescher R, Fuhlbrigge AL, Williams P, Zeiger RS, Raissy HH, Van Natta ML, Tonascia J, Strunk RC; CAMP Research Group.Effect of inhaled glucocorticoids in childhood on adult height. N Engl J Med 2012;367:904-12. The use of inhaled glucocorticoids for persistent asthma causes a temporary reduction in growth velocity in prepubertal children but it is unclear whether the child is permanently shortened or attains a normal adult height. Starting at the age of 5 to 13 years, the participants had been randomly assigned to receive 400 μg of budesonide, 16 mg of nedocromil, or placebo daily for 4 to 6 years. The authors measured adult height in 943 of 1041 participants (90.6%). Mean adult height was 1.2 cm lower the budesonide group than in the placebo group (P = 0.001) A larger daily dose of …
LONDON 2012: DISTRIBUTED IMAG(IN)INGS AND EXPLOITING PROTOCOL
Paul Caplan
PLATFORM : Journal of Media and Communication , 2010,
Abstract: he Olympic Games in London in 2012 is being built online as well as off through official and unofficial photographs which serve to position ‘2012’ within a discourse of legacy and participation. This paper looks at how network protocols can be addressed as what Bruno Latour would call ‘actants’, non-human actors that generate and discipline that visualisation within a particular network scopic regime (Jay, 1988). Following Galloway (2004), protocols such as JPEG/EXIF and XML can be seen as generating new scopic texts/practices around archive and openness which underpin 2012 ideologies of legacy and participation. The paper goes on to explore the potential of critical intervention in that regime using Benjamin’s model of writing history developed in The Arcades Project (1999).

Abstract: La teoría del estado de excepción de Giorgio Agamben, según la cual, lejos de ser una medida provisional y extraordinaria, éste habría devenido una técnica de gobierno, puede ayudar a entender la configuración legal y espacial de los Juegos Olímpicos. Este texto analiza los documentos fundamentales de la arquitectura legal de London 2012 con el fin de mostrar su impacto en la regulación y vigilancia del espacio económico y político de la ciudad. Tras presentar los pilares fundamentales de la gobernanza olímpica, el texto se centra en la configuración jurídica de la excepcionalidad. A través de un sistema de legitimación basado en la necesidad y la amenaza, la normativa asociada a los Juegos aprobada por el Gobierno Británico logra efectivamente materializar un estado de excepción: una suerte de paraíso capitalista, en el que la actividad económica está regulada por contratos exclusivos, toda actividad política está criminalizada, y los privilegios son protegidos policial y militarmente. De aquí que London 2012 pueda ser calificado como un espacio de excepción .
Kinematics of Interacting CMEs of September 25 and 28, 2012  [PDF]

Physics , 2015,
Abstract: We have studied two Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) that occurred on September 25 and 28, 2012 and interacted near the Earth. By fitting the Graduated Cylindrical Shell (GCS) model on the SECCHI/COR2 images and applying the Stereoscopic Self-Similar Expansion (SSSE) method on the SECCHI/HI images, the initial direction of both the CMEs is estimated to be west of the Sun-Earth line. Further, the three-dimensional (3D) heliospheric kinematics of these CMEs have been estimated using Self-Similar Expansion (SSE) reconstruction method. We show that use of SSE method with different values of angular extent of the CMEs, leads to significantly different kinematics estimates for the CMEs propagating away from the observer. Using the estimated kinematics and true masses of the CMEs, we have derived the coefficient of restitution for the collision which is found to be close to elastic. The in situ measurements at 1 AU show two distinct structures of interplanetary CMEs, heating of the following CME, as well as ongoing interaction between the preceding and the following CME. We highlight the signatures of interaction in remote and in situ observations of these CMEs and the role of interaction in producing a major geomagnetic storm.

Abstract: No abstract available. Article truncated at 150 words. We had a great group of attending discussants at this Journal Club – thanks to all who participated including Drs. Jay Blum, Al Thomas, Clement Singarajah, Rick Robbins, Tom Bajo, Huw Owen Reece, and Roxanne Garcia Orr. Winters B, Custer J, Galvagno SM Jr, et al. Diagnostic errors in the intensive care unit: a systematic review of autopsy studies. BMJ Qual Saf 2012 Jul 24. [Epub ahead of print]The authors reviewed 45 years of autopsy studies of ICU patients to determine the most common missed diagnoses. Thirty-one studies including 5863 autopsies were included. Eight percent revealed a missed diagnosis with an adverse impact survival that would likely have changed therapy. More than 80% of these were vascular events (such as pulmonary embolism or acute myocardial infarction) and infections. Strangely, the authors detail all diagnostic categories except infection – this seems to have been an oversight error on their part. The authors …

Robbins RA
Southwest Journal of Pulmonary and Critical Care , 2012,
Abstract: No abstract available. Article truncated at 150 words. A dinner meeting was held on 9/26//2012 at Scottsdale Shea beginning at 6:30 PM. There were 18 in attendance representing the pulmonary, critical care, sleep, pathology, and radiology communities.A discussion was held on Pending Premium Cigar Legislation HR. 1639 and S.1461, the "Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act of 2011”. This bill would exempt "premium cigars" from FDA oversight. The definition of premium cigars is so broad that candy flavored cigars, cigarillos and blunts would be exempted from FDA regulation. Teenage cigar smoking is increasing and this legislation may result in a further increase. The Arizona Thoracic Society is opposed to this bill. Dr. Robbins is to put a link on the Southwest Journal of Pulmonary and Critical Care website linking to the ATS website. This will enable members to contact their Congressmen opposing this legislation. A discussion was also held on a proposed combined Tucson/Phoenix …

This article provides a summary of the discussions, conclusions and recommendations from that meeting. Meeting sessions included: updated policy recommendations on the use of sulphadoxine-pyrimethamine for Intermittent Preventive Treatment of malaria in pregnancy, as well as the use of single dose primaquine as a Plasmodium falciparum gametocytocide; the need to develop a Global Technical Strategy for Malaria Control and Elimination 2016– 2025 and a global strategy for control of Plasmodium vivax; the Affordable Medicines Facility for malaria independent evaluation and promoting malaria case management in the private sector; updates from the Technical Expert Group on drug resistance and containment and the Evidence Review Group on malaria burden estimation; update on the RTS,S/AS01 malaria vaccine; progress on the policy setting process for malaria vector control; and the process for updating the WHO Guidelines for the Treatment of Malaria.
