Sinusitis and chronic cough in children
Wilson NW,Hogan MB,Harper CB,Peele K
Journal of Asthma and Allergy , 2012,
Abstract: Nevin W Wilson, Mary Beth Hogan, Charles Bruce Harper, Kathy Peele, Sonia Budhecha, Vincent Loffredo, Vanessa WongUniversity of Nevada School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Section of Allergy, Immunology and Pulmonology, Reno, NV, USABackground: Chronic cough in children is a common problem, and sinusitis is a common etiology. The diagnosis of sinusitis is often clinical, but confirmation is thought to require a CT scan due to the difficulty of interpreting a Water’s view sinus X-ray.Objectives: The purposes of the study were (1) to examine the frequency of an abnormal sinus X-ray in children with a chronic cough of more than 4 weeks duration; (2) to compare the interpretation of the sinus film between allergy/pulmonary clinicians and radiologists; and (3) to correlate symptoms with X-ray results.Methods: A chart review of 2- to 18-year-old patients with coughing exceeding 4 weeks was performed. Data was collected for patients who had received a Water’s view sinus film as part of their evaluation. Exam, X-ray results, and clinical outcomes were categorized and statistical analyses performed.Results: A total of 86 patients were included. Clinicians found that 65% of the children had positive Water’s view films, compared with the radiologist’s reading of 62% (non significant). Significant associations between post-tussive emesis (P = 0.01) and purulence (P = 0.03) were noted with a positive film. Positive sinus X-ray was highly associated with all findings except wheeze when present together (P < 0.001).Conclusions: Sinus abnormalities on X-ray are associated with prolonged cough in 65% of children. The Water’s view sinus film is a clinically useful screening tool for clinicians in the workup of chronic cough. Certain physical findings and clinical complaints, when present concurrently, correlate with the X-ray results.Keywords: Water’s view sinus X-ray, asthma, allergic rhinitis, radiologist, post-tussive emesis, wheezing

A Redescription of Lutzomyia (Nyssomyia) intermedia (Lutz & Neiva, 1912), and Resurrection of L. neivai (Pinto, 1926) (Diptera, Psychodidae, Phlebotominae)
Marcondes, CB;
Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761996000400012
Abstract: lutzomyia (nyssomyia) intermedia (lutz & neiva) is redescribed, a neotype is designated, and a very similar species, l. (n.) neivai (pinto, 1926), is resurrected; the male and the female are redescribed. the two species can be differentiated by differences in the spermathecae, common ducts and number of cibarial horizontal teeth of the females and in the size and proportions of several structures of both sexes. the known geographical distribution of both species is given.
Médias et publicisation de la sphère privée au Cameroun
cb Nelem
Africa Development , 2011,
Abstract: This article is aimed at showing that the private sphere has invaded the public sphere through the phenomenon of mediatization, to the point of questioning the conventional line drawn between what is viewed as pertaining to public life, on the one hand, and what is thought of as pertaining to private life, on the other hand. The fluctuation of this borderline is heightened not only by the role that the media play in this day and age in the daily lives of individuals, but also by the close ties that now exist between the political scene and the communication process. Indeed, mediatization should not be viewed merely as the exposure of large swathes of the private lives of politicians in the press or on radio, television or the Internet, but also as a modern communication strategy that aims to recreate proximity between personalities and the public. Thus, we have witnessed the development, not only of politicallyoriented programmes that draw on the private sphere of political actors to present elements that will contribute to their structuring or destructuring, but also interactive programmes where individuals speak out or share their own experiences on subjects relating to health, relationships, religious beliefs, etc. In this case, the aim is to abolish the physical distance between the world and the media, i.e. the world of show-business and staging, and the world as it is actually experienced. While the spectacle of reality then appears as reality itself, taking account of the unique features of the Cameroonian milieu is a significant indicator that can help identify the emergence of the private sphere in the public sphere.

Algorithm for output of floating-point numbers in fixed-point form
CB Ndeekor
Journal of Applied Sciences and Environmental Management , 2005,
Abstract: Input/output of data items and information are very common operations performed on computer systems. Various data types require special ways to perform these operations on them. Floating-point numbers are no exceptions. Presented in this paper is an algorithm with which floating-point numbers can be converted to their American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII) equivalents in fixed-point form ready for output. The algorithm is so written that it can be implemented easily and requires just the address of the buffer to contain the ASCII equivalent and the number of fractional digits desired in the result.

The effect of an initial anaerobic zone on the kinetics and stoichiometry of acetate removal during nutrient-limiting conditions
WF Harper
Water SA , 2003,
Abstract: I studied the stoichiometry and kinetics of acetate removal on anaerobic / aerobic (AnA) and completely aerobic (CA) sequencing batch reactors under nutrient-limiting conditions. CA acetate removal rates were 20 to 40% higher than AnA acetate removal rates when both nitrogen and phosphorus (P) were sufficient. When P was deficient, the acetate removal rate of both sludges was 0.8 mg acetic acid/g VSS/min. Anaerobic stoichiometry indicated that polyphosphate-accumulating organisms were present at a lowlevel, and that glycogen-accumulating organisms were dominant. I also found that the AnA sludge synthesised 2 to 5 times more polyhydroxybutyrate-C than the CA sludge. WaterSA Vol.29(4) 2003: 443-450
