Core Topics in Thoracic Anesthesia
Timothy Evans
Critical Care , 2010, DOI: 10.1186/cc9364
Abstract: Core Topics in Thoracic Anesthesia. Cambridge University Press; 2009, 230ppISBN 9780521867122This book is aimed primarily at trainees gaining experience in thoracic anaesthesia. Admirably, the authors are also motivated by the desire to convey and pass on their own experience to those they teach. The content is divided into broad sections dealing with pre-operative considerations, anaesthesia for specific procedures and identified groups of patients (for example, by age, size and emergent/elective status), and post-operative management. Of the 30 chapters, 15 are solely or partly authored by the editors, which adds to continuity of style. The target audience probably dictates (and even mandates) a rather dictatorial and unevidenced approach. Thus, the contents of each chapter are supported by key references rather than an exhaustive bibliography. Your Reviewer does not practice thoracic anaesthesia but spends a good deal of his clinical practice reviewing patients with problems covered by the pre-operative and post-operative periods. The chapters on thoracic anatomy and respiratory physiology are brief, concise and generally well written. Appropriate emphasis is placed upon chronic respiratory diseases likely to impact upon peri-operative care, particularly pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary fibrosis and occupational lung disease. Only occasionally do the authors spill over into the self-evident, such as when advising the reader to employ an anaesthetic technique unlikely to provoke bronchospasm in asthmatics.Your Reviewer consulted colleagues who found the chapters on anaesthesia and the excellent illustrations contained therein of relevant equipment to be particularly robust. The use of decision trees and tables summarising the advantages and disadvantages of various techniques of anaesthesia and monitoring are a definite strength. Illustrations (such as those relating to video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) were helpful but would have been enhanced by th

Ratio Estimation in SIMS Analysis  [PDF]
R. C. Ogliore,G. R. Huss,K. Nagashima
Physics , 2011, DOI: 10.1016/j.nimb.2011.04.120
Abstract: The determination of an isotope ratio by secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) traditionally involves averaging a number of ratios collected over the course of a measurement. We show that this method leads to an additive positive bias in the expectation value of the estimated ratio that is approximately equal to the true ratio divided by the counts of the denominator isotope of an individual ratio. This bias does not decrease as the number of ratios used in the average increases. By summing all counts in the numerator isotope, then dividing by the sum of counts in the denominator isotope, the estimated ratio is less biased: the bias is approximately equal to the ratio divided by the summed counts of the denominator isotope over the entire measurement. We propose a third ratio estimator (Beale's estimator) that can be used when the bias from the summed counts is unacceptably large for the hypothesis being tested. We derive expressions for the variance of these ratio estimators as well as the conditions under which they are normally distributed. Finally, we investigate a SIMS dataset showing the effects of ratio bias, and discuss proper ratio estimation for SIMS analysis.
Build Your Money Muscles: Nine Simple Exercises for Improving Your Relationship with Money  [cached]
Angela C. Collins
Journal of Financial Therapy , 2012, DOI: 10.4148/jft.v3i1.1680
Abstract: In her book, "Build Your Money Muscles: Nine Simple Exercises for Improving Your Relationship with Money", Joan Sotkin outlines a step-by-step process of how to identify, interpret, and repair relationships with money. This book focuses more on the thoughts, beliefs, and emotions (referred to as TBE) around money than actual money management skills. These thoughts, beliefs, and emotions create behaviors which ultimately construct financial situations for better or worse.

The Johnson homomorphism and its kernel  [PDF]
Andrew Putman
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: We give a new proof of a celebrated theorem of Dennis Johnson that asserts that the kernel of the Johnson homomorphism on the Torelli subgroup of the mapping class group is generated by separating twists. In fact, we prove a more general result that also applies to "subsurface Torelli groups". Using this, we extend Johnson's calculation of the rational abelianization of the Torelli group not only to the subsurface Torelli groups, but also to finite-index subgroups of the Torelli group that contain the kernel of the Johnson homomorphism.
