Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/as.2018.911103
Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of omission of macronutrients on dry matter production and on the nutritional status of sunflower cv. BRS 122. The experiment was carried out in a greenhouse, in randomized blocks, with seven treatments corresponding to the Hoagland & Arnon standard solution (1950) and the individual omission of N, P, K, Ca, Mg and S, in three replicates. After 50 days of sowing, the dry matter and the nutritional status of the plants were evaluated. The omission of N, P, K, Ca, Mg and S limited the dry mass production of sunflower cv. BRS 122 in relation to the complete solution, besides causing nutritional imbalance due to the interaction between the nutrients. The omission of the macronutrients K, Ca, and Mg caused the higher imbalances in the plants, highlighting the elevated N contents in these treatments comparing to the complete solution.

Abstract: case study with the aim to evaluate swallowing pre- and post-enzyme treatment of an individual with mucopolysaccharidosis, and to analyze whether this treatment caused swallowing improvement. it was carried out a descriptive study of a male subject with 9 years and 6 months with the severe type of the disease. the subject was observed in three distinct moments: one pre-treatment and two post-treatment assessments. it was carried out a speech-language pathology assessment of dysphagia, a pneumologist's respiratory assessment, a clinical otorhinolaryngology assessment, and a fiberoptic endoscopic examination of swallowing. after that, results were interpreted according to the functional oral intake scale (fois), and data were descriptively analyzed. results showed presence of dysphagia with impact on oral feeding in the pre-treatment and the first post-treatment assessments. the second post-treatment assessment did not show any signs of dysphagia, with possibilities for all consistencies, however with restriction to solid consistency due to a significant occlusal alteration. moreover, the fiberoptic endoscopic examination of swallowing was normal in this assessment, and there was a gradual improvement on the swallowing dynamics along the treatment. the study showed that dysphagia was present and had a negative impact on food dynamics for the subject studied, and also that the enzyme treatment for over a year improved swallowing, with positive impact on food dynamics.

Abstract: Managers and regulators are concerned about potential human health effects from exposure on lands contaminated by chemicals and radionuclides. Determining target cleanup levels is partly dependent upon future land use, and potential exposure from human use. This paper provides data from surveys of activity patterns of people attending festivals in four states, located in the vicinity of Department of Energy facilities. There were significant differences in both participation rates, and activity rates as a function of both location and ethnicity that can be used by managers to track exposure, land use, and preferred activities on natural lands. In general, 1) a higher percent of Native Americans engaged in consumptive activities than others, 2) a higher percent of Caucasians engaged in some non-consumptive activities than Native Americans, 3) a higher percentage of Native Americans engaged in activities on sacred grounds, 4) activity rates were generally higher for Native Americans for consumptive activities and religious/cultural than for Caucasians, 5) fishing rates were higher than other consumptive activities, and camping/hiking were higher than other non-con- sumptive activities, and 6) hunting rates were higher in subjects from Idaho than elsewhere. Baseline human use is critical for monitoring potential exposure, and provides the basis for monitoring, risk assessment and future land use, and these data can be used by managers for assessment and management. Tracking changes over time will reflect changing recreational, subsistence, and cultural/religious trends that relate to land use, public perceptions, and exposure.

Modern Economy (ME) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/me.2015.66067
Abstract: Lie symmetry methods are used to find a closed form solution for in-arrears swaps under the 3/2 model \"\". As well, approximate solutions are found for short-tenor in-arrears caplets and floorlets under the same interest rate model. Comparisons are made of the approximate option values with those obtained with a computationally-intensive numerical scheme. The approximate pricing is found to be substantially fast and easy to implement, while the relative errors with respect to the “true” prices are very small.

Abstract: Approximately ten million people suffer from Chagas disease worldwide, caused by Trypanosoma cruzi, with the disease burden predominately focused in Latin America. Sleeping sickness is another serious health problem, caused by Trypanosoma brucei, especially in sub-Saharan countries. Unfortunately, the drugs currently available to treat these diseases have toxic effects and are not effective against all disease phases or parasite strains. Therefore, there is a clear need for the development of novel drugs and drug targets to treat these diseases. We propose the trypanosome prereplication machinery component, Orc1/Cdc6, as a potential target for drug development. In trypanosomes, Orc1/Cdc6 is involved in nuclear DNA replication, and, despite its involvement in such a conserved process, Orc1/Cdc6 is distinct from mammalian Orc1 and Cdc6 proteins. Moreover, RNAi-mediated silencing of trypanosome Orc1/Cdc6 expression in T. brucei decreased cell survival, indicating that Orc1/Cdc6 is critical for trypanosome survival. 1. Introduction Currently, approximately ten million people have Chagas disease worldwide, with the disease burden being centered in Latin America. In 2008, approximately ten thousand people died from this disease. Sleeping sickness is another serious health problem, particularly in sub-Saharan countries; in the first half of the twentieth century, this disease practically decimated entire communities in central Africa [1]. After many surveillance programs, 2009 marked the first time in 50 years that less than ten thousand new cases of sleeping sickness were reported in Africa (http://www.who.org/). The causal agents of Chagas disease and sleeping sickness are, respectively, the protozoan parasites Trypanosoma cruzi and T. brucei of the Kinetoplastida order. Two subspecies of T. brucei, T. b. rhodesiense, and T. b. gambiense, are responsible for acute sleeping sickness in Eastern and Southern Africa and chronic sleeping sickness in Western and Central Africa, respectively. Chronic sleeping sickness accounts for approximately 95% of all reported cases. These protozoa have life cycles that alternate between a mammalian host and an insect host. T. cruzi epimastigotes are a noninfective life cycle stage of the parasite that proliferate by binary fission in the guts of Triatoma infestans insects, which are more commonly known as kissing bugs. These epimastigotes then transform into the infective metacyclic form in the insect hindgut. Then, when the insect vector bites a mammalian host, they eliminate the metacyclic parasites in their feces. This

Abstract: Objective:This study was carried out with the purpose to evaluate through traction test the bond strength of four one bottle adhesive systems to decidous teeth dentine. Method: For this experiment twenty temporary molar teeth were used from the Human Teeth Bank in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Sao Paulo. All teeth were cut in the mesion-distal direction and included in light-cured acrylic resin with its vestibular, palatal and lingual faces directed toward the external surface. The teeth had its vestibular and lingual faces worn till the areas were all flat and randomly divided into four groups. G1: Prime & Bond NT (Dentsply Caulk); G2: Optbond Solo (Kerr); G3: Excite (Vivadent) and G4: Single Bond (3M). The adhesive systems were applied according to the manufactures instructions. The same restorative material (Filtek Z-250 3M) was used in all groups. The samples were conserved in distilled during 24h and then submerged in traction assay. Results: Groups 2 and 3 brings the lowest notes and groups 1 and 4 the highest notes. Conclusion: In the conditions of this study the adhesive system Single Bond (3M) and Prime & Bond NT (Dentsply Caulk) presented better bond strength resistance to the deciduous teeth dentine.
