Anaesthesia Management for Ablation Therapy in Post Heart Transplant Arrhythmia  [PDF]
Sunisa Prapaitrakool, Daniel Tom Bainbridge, Ronit Lavi
Open Journal of Anesthesiology (OJAnes) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojanes.2013.38074

In this case series we describe the anaesthetic management of atrial ablation for arrhythmia in three post heart transplant patients. These patients provide a unique challenge to the anaesthesiologist, as heart physiology, end organs effects, procedural related factors should all be part of the specific anaesthetic plan tailored for each patient individually. The different anaesthetic techniques applied, and procedure related complications are evaluated. Anaesthetic management, procedural related difficulties, pharmacologic aspects, and possible associated complications are reviewed.

Going Down the Hole: Beaconsfield, Celebrities and the Changing News Culture in Australia
Jason Bainbridge
Cultural Studies Review , 2011,
Abstract: For fourteen days, all of Australia and much of the world was focused on the rescue of two miners trapped underground in Beaconsfield, Tasmania. This article looks at the period from Todd Russell and Brant Webb’s rescue up to and including Channel Nine’s screening of an exclusive interview with the men on 21 May 2006. It analyses the ways in which Beaconsfield was reported—and the exclusive interview with the miners pursued—as a way of exploring notions of celebrity, infotainment, chequebook journalism and the changing shape of news culture in Australia. For these reasons, the events at Beaconsfield should not be dismissed as just another news story, but rather, should be regarded as indicative of the ways in which news is increasingly being reported, packaged and folded back into larger entertainment structures.

Mathematics , 2007,
Abstract: We compute the volumes of the eigenform loci in the moduli space of genus two Abelian differentials. From this, we obtain asymptotic formulas for counting closed billiards paths in certain L-shaped polygons with barriers.
Euler characteristics of Teichmüller curves in genus two
Matt Bainbridge
Mathematics , 2006, DOI: 10.2140/gt.2007.11.1887
Abstract: We calculate the Euler characteristics of all of the Teichmuller curves in the moduli space of genus two Riemann surfaces which are generated by holomorphic one-forms with a single double zero. These curves can all be embedded in Hilbert modular surfaces and our main result is that the Euler characteristic of a Teichmuller curve is proportional to the Euler characteristic of the Hilbert modular surface on which it lies. The idea is to use techniques from algebraic geometry to calculate the fundamental classes of these Teichmuller curves in certain compactifications of the Hilbert modular surfaces. This is done by defining meromorphic sections of line bundles over Hilbert modular surfaces which vanish along these Teichmuller curves. We apply these results to calculate the Siegel-Veech constants for counting closed billiards paths in certain L-shaped polygons. We also calculate the Lyapunov exponents of the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle for any ergodic, SL_2(R)-invariant measure on the moduli space of Abelian differentials in genus two (previously calculated in unpublished work of Kontsevich and Zorich).
Collaborative Structuring of Knowledge by Experts and the Public
Tom Morris,Daniel Mietchen
Computer Science , 2010,
Abstract: There is much debate on how public participation and expertise can be brought together in collaborative knowledge environments. One of the experiments addressing the issue directly is Citizendium. In seeking to harvest the strengths (and avoiding the major pitfalls) of both user-generated wiki projects and traditional expert-approved reference works, it is a wiki to which anybody can contribute using their real names, while those with specific expertise are given a special role in assessing the quality of content. Upon fulfillment of a set of criteria like factual and linguistic accuracy, lack of bias, and readability by non-specialists, these entries are forked into two versions: a stable (and thus citable) approved "cluster" (an article with subpages providing supplementary information) and a draft version, the latter to allow for further development and updates. We provide an overview of how Citizendium is structured and what it offers to the open knowledge communities, particularly to those engaged in education and research. Special attention will be paid to the structures and processes put in place to provide for transparent governance, to encourage collaboration, to resolve disputes in a civil manner and by taking into account expert opinions, and to facilitate navigation of the site and contextualization of its contents.
Virtual Sustainability
William Sims Bainbridge
Sustainability , 2010, DOI: 10.3390/su2103195
Abstract: In four ways, massively multiplayer online role-playing games may serve as tools for advancing sustainability goals, and as laboratories for developing alternatives to current social arrangements that have implications for the natural environment. First, by moving conspicuous consumption and other usually costly status competitions into virtual environments, these virtual worlds might reduce the need for physical resources. Second, they provide training that could prepare individuals to be teleworkers, and develop or demonstrate methods for using information technology to replace much transportation technology, notably in commuting. Third, virtual worlds and online games build international cooperation, even blending national cultures, thereby inching us toward not only the world consciousness needed for international agreements about the environment, but also toward non-spatial government that cuts across archaic nationalisms. Finally, realizing the potential social benefits of this new technology may urge us to reconsider a number of traditional societal institutions.
Deligne-Mumford compactification of the real multiplication locus and Teichmueller curves in genus three
Matt Bainbridge,Martin Moeller
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: In the moduli space M_g of genus g Riemann surfaces, consider the locus RM_O of Riemann surfaces whose Jacobians have real multiplication by the order O in a totally real number field F of degree g. If g = 2 or 3, we compute the closure of RM_O in the Deligne-Mumford compactification of M_g and the closure of the locus of eigenforms over RM_O in the Deligne-Mumford compactification of the moduli space of holomorphic one-forms. For higher genera, we give strong necessary conditions for a stable curve to be in the boundary of RM_O Boundary strata of RM_O are parameterized by configurations of elements of the field F satisfying a strong geometry of numbers type restriction. We apply this computation to give evidence for the conjecture that there are only finitely many algebraically primitive Teichmueller curves in M_3. In particular, we prove that there are only finitely many algebraically primitive Teichmueller curves generated by a one-form having two zeros of order 3 and 1. We also present the results of a computer search for algebraically primitive Teichmueller curves generated by a one-form having a single zero.
Targeted enrichment beyond the consensus coding DNA sequence exome reveals exons with higher variant densities
Matthew N Bainbridge, Min Wang, Yuanqing Wu, Irene Newsham, Donna M Muzny, John L Jefferies, Thomas J Albert, Daniel L Burgess, Richard A Gibbs
Genome Biology , 2011, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2011-12-7-r68
Abstract: We examine capture sequence data from outside of the CCDS regions and find that extremes of GC content that are present in different subregions of the genome can reduce the local capture sequence coverage to less than 50% relative to the CCDS. This effect is due to biases inherent in both the Illumina and SOLiD sequencing platforms that are exacerbated by the capture process. Interestingly, for two subregion types, microRNA and predicted exons, the capture process yields higher than expected coverage when compared to whole genome sequencing. Lastly, we examine the variation present in non-CCDS regions and find that predicted exons, as well as exonic regions specific to RefSeq and Vega, show much higher variant densities than the CCDS.We show that regions outside of the CCDS perform less efficiently in capture sequence experiments. Further, we show that the variant density in computationally predicted exons is more than 2.5-times higher than that observed in the CCDS.Single nucleotide variants (SNVs) and short indels can be discovered by hybridization-based targeted enrichment, followed by high-throughput DNA sequencing. This 'capture sequencing' can target the protein coding regions of the genome, the 'exome', and provide a cost-effective alternative to whole genome sequencing (WGS) [1-6]. Capture sequencing has now been applied to the identification of pathogenic variants in several disease models [7-16] and in population studies comparing phenotypically normal individuals [17].DNA may be enriched by a number of methods [1,4,5,18]. Here, we perform liquid-phase hybridization using biotinylated, DNA-oligonucleotide probes with a typical length of 60 to 80 bp. The probes are incubated with fragmented genomic DNA, after ligation with sequencing-platform specific adapters. Subsequently, the desired regions are recovered via streptavidin-coated magnetic beads with affinity for the biotinylated oligonucleotide probes. This approach has allowed interrogation of a human ex

Abstract: The application of decomposed substrate after continual biogas production is one of the possible ways how to use alternative energy sources with following monitoring of its complex influence on the hygienic state of soil with the emphasis on heavy metal input. The substances from bilge and drain sediments from water panels, also biosludge gained by continual co-fermentation of animal excrements belong to these compounds. The biosludge application is connected with possible risk of cadmium and lead, also other risky elements input into the soil. The analyses of applicated sludge prove that the determined heavy metals contents are compared with limitary value. These facts - hygienic state of soil, pH influence this limitary value and biosludge is suitable for soil application. The total heavy metals content in soil is related to the increased cadmium, nickel, chromium and cobalt contents. The analyses of heavy metals contents in sunflower seeds show that the grown yield does not comply with the legislative norms from the stand point of heavy metals content due to high zinc and nickel contents. Copper, cadmium, lead, chromium contents fulfil limitary values, for cobalt content the value is not mentioned in Codex Alimentarius. The nickel value in the control variant seeds is 2.2 times higher than the highest acceptable amount, then in variant where the sludge was applicated the nickel content was increased by 1.6 times. In the case of zinc there was increasing content in individual variants 4.7, or 4.8 times. The direct connection with the higher accumulation of zinc and nickel in soil by the influence of biosludge application is not definitely surveyed, the increased heavy metals contents in sunflower were primarily caused by their increased contents in soils.
The locus of real multiplication and the Schottky locus
Matt Bainbridge,Martin M?ller
Mathematics , 2011,
Abstract: We prove that the generic point of a Hilbert modular four-fold is not a Jacobian. The proof uses degeneration techniques and is independent of properties of the mapping class group used in preceding papers on locally symmetric subvarieties of the moduli space of abelian varieties contained in the Schottky locus.
