Nonpalpable Testicular Masses—Should We Be Worried?  [PDF]
Hamid Abboudi, Sachin Malde, Ahmad Mchaourab, Ben Eddy, Nitin Shrotri
Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2013.37053
Abstract:

Objective: To report our experience of a contemporary series of patients who underwent radical orchidectomy for non-palpable testicular masses, in order to comment on their malignant potential and identify any factors predictive of a malignant outcome. Materials and Methods: We reviewed the case-notes of patients who underwent radical inguinal orchidectomy over a 22-month period between January 2010 and October 2011. Results: A total of 71 patients were analysed, with a mean (range) age of 45 years (17 - 82). Overall, 41 (57.7%) orchidectomies were malignant and 30 (42.3%) were benign. There were 20 (28%) non-palpable testicular masses found incidentally on ultrasound, and of these 40% were malignant and 60% were benign. In total 6 of these non-palpable lesions were <1 cm in size, and of these 66.6% were malignant and 33.3% were benign. The majority of tumours were in patients under the age of 50, but there was no correlation between the lesion size and the risk of a malignant outcome. Conclusion: In view of the significant rate of malignancy in non-palpable testicular masses we recommend surgical intervention over surveillance alone. However, as the majority of these lesions may eventually turn out to be benign, we suggest that testis-sparing surgery is the optimal approach, and should be performed in centres where the required radiological, histopathological, and surgical expertise exists.

Ambient Intelligence: Awareness Context Application in Industrial Storage  [PDF]
Ahmed Zouinkhi, Eddy Bajic, Eric Rondeau, Mohamed Ben Gayed, Mohamed Naceur Abdelkrim
Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/wsn.2011.34016
Abstract: WSNs are designed to efficiently collect data and monitor environments, among other applications. This article describes the concept and realization of an Active Security System for security management of warehousing of chemical substances using WSNs. We present an approach to modeling and simulating cooperation between intelligent products that are equipped with a platform of sensor networks and ambient communication capabilities to increase their security, in a context of ambient intelligence of a deposit for chemical substances. Behavior evolution of every intelligent product is modeled by hierarchical Petri Nets. The simulation of the model is implemented in the Castalia-OMNET++ Tools language.
A Novelty-Induced Change in Episodic (NICE) Context Account of Primacy Effects in Free Recall  [PDF]
Eddy J. Davelaar
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2013.49099
Abstract:

Formal cognitive models of episodic memory assume that during encoding list items become associated with a changing context representation. However, this representation is recency-biased and thus can not account for primacy effects under conditions that prevent rehearsal. In this paper, it is hypothesized that one source underlying primacy effects is the detection of novelty. In three experiments, it is shown how novelty at the perceptual and semantic level can explain the full serial position function of first recall probabilities, including primacy effects. It is proposed that an item becomes distinctive due to increase in the change within a distributed episodic context representation, induced by novelty detection. The theory makes three assumptions. First, items become associated with a distributed context representation. Second, the context representation changes with item presentation. Third, the rate of contextual change is related to the perceptual and conceptual difference computed between the presented item and the previous item (or items in the buffer). This theory captures primacy effects in first recall probabilities without recourse to a rehearsal process and provides a mechanistic account of distinctiveness.

Abstract: OBJETIVO: Describir los hallazgos patológicos en una serie de pacientes con toxoplasmosis ocular. MéTODOS: Se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo de serie de casos, con el propósito de describir el comportamiento de la forma activa de la toxoplasmosis ocular en pacientes atendidos en el Instituto Cubano de Oftalmología "Ramón Pando Ferrer" durante el a o 2009. Se examinaron 128 pacientes, a quienes se les efectuó examen oftalmológico completo y de laboratorio. RESULTADOS: La forma de presentación más común fue una retinitis, y el grupo etáreo más afectado fue el de 20 a 29 a os, con ligero predominio del sexo femenino. La disminución de la visión y los flotadores fueron los principales síntomas de presentación, y el diagnóstico se realizó en 106 pacientes de forma clínica. La inflamación predominó en la zona I de la retina y da ó principalmente, de manera moderada, la visión de los pacientes en el ojo afectado al momento del diagnóstico. Se instauró tratamiento en 122 de los 128 pacientes y este fue en su mayoría el esquema estándar de pirimetamina, sulfadiazina y prednisona. El 53,1 % de los ojos afectados recuperaron su visión normal, mientras permanecieron con disminución de la visión severa 34 ojos, la mayoría causada por complicaciones como cicatrices maculares, que fueron las más registradas. CONCLUSIONES: Buenos resultados visuales pueden ser obtenidos con una terapia adecuada aunque esta dependerá del área de la retina afectada, el nivel de la inflamación intraocular y el tiempo de duración de la enfermedad.

La formación lingüística de los profesores en el "enfoque comunicativo de la pedagogía del francés lengua extranjera"
Roulet Eddy
Forma y Función , 1984,
Abstract: Generalmente se admite hoy día que la adquisición de cierta competencia de comunicación por parte del estudiante constituye un objetivo importante de la pedagogía de una lengua extranjera. El estudiante no debe solamente ser capaz de construir o de comprender frases correctas en ejercicios escritos u orales, debe ante todo ser capaz de comunicar en una situación autentica: por ejemplo, comprender las instrucciones de un distribuidor de tiquetes de bus, redactar una respuesta a una oferta de empleo, expresar sus intenciones en una agencia de viajes y comprender y explicar las aclaraciones solicitadas por el empleado. (El tipo y grado de estas competencias comunicativas pueden variar de un grupo de estudiantes a otro según sus necesidades lingüísticas).

Abstract: Observation on sea cucumber diversity was carried out at coastal waters of Pai and Imbeyomi Islands in the Padaido Island Biak Numfor. Sampling was done by using a transect quadrant of 1 m x 1 m. This sampling and observation on its microhabitat were conducted by snorkling. Analyses on the sea cucumber community structure were based on its frequency of occurance, diversity, and density. The results showed that at both locations 10 species of sea cucumber were found where Holothuria edulis, H. atra, and H. nobilis were predominant common and more evenly distributed than the other species.

Makara Seri Sains , 2006,
Abstract: A total of 22 echinoderm species were found in Takofi waters, North Maluku. They were represented by 6 species of holothuroidea, 4 species of asteroidea, 5 species of echinoidea and 7 species of ophiuroidea. The Ophiuroidea were relatively common in seagrass area. The quantitative analysis on the abundance data revealed the highest diversity index of faunal assemblage at station II (H'=1.19). The highest evenness index was exhibited by the echinoderms from station III (J = 0.99), while the highest species richness was represented by them from station I (D = 1.22).
