Abstract: effects of lime and gypsum applications on the quality of soybeans grown under no-till (nt) are not well defined yet. a field trial established in 1998 on a dystrophic clayey rhodic hapludox, at ponta grossa, state of paraná, brazil, evaluated grain yield and soybean quality based on oil, protein and nutrient content, after lime and gypsum applications under nt, in a randomized complete block design (n = 3), split-plot experiment. in the main plots, the treatments with dolomitic lime were: control (no lime), split application of lime on the surface (three yearly applications of 1.5 mg ha1), surface lime (4.5 mg ha1), and incorporated lime (4.5 mg ha1). subplots received four different rates of gypsum: 0, 3, 6, and 9 mg ha-1. the soybean crop was evaluated in the agricultural years of 20022003 and 20032004. after 58 months, the correction of acidity through surface liming, with full or split rates, was more pronounced in the top layer (00.05 m) and there was greater reaction at the depths of 0.050.10 and 0.100.20 m when lime was incorporated. surface or incorporated liming had no effect on grain yield, soybean oil and protein content. gypsum improved chemical subsoil conditions, raising ph (0.01 mol l-1 cacl2) as well as ca2+ and s-so42- contents; it also caused exchangeable mg2+ leaching in the soil profile. the application of gypsum did not affect grain yield, yet it improved soybean quality through an increase in protein and s contents, in 20032004, and in grain p, k and ca, in the two cropping years. the use of gypsum in nt soybeans can be especially important for fields of seeds production.

Abstract: the prognostic value of different factors upon diagnosis of cml was analysed in 45 philadelphia (ph1)-positive patients. the median survival was 48 months. univariate analysis showed 5 poor prognostic factors (male sex, under 45 years-old, bone marrow blasts greater than or equal to 10 percent, blood basophils greater than or equal to 6 percent and blood eosinophils greater than or equal to 6 percent) which provided for the development of a clinical staging system: stage i with none or one factor and a two-year survival rate of 100 percent; stage ii with two or three factors and two-year survival of 72.2 percent; and stage iii with four or five factors and two-year survival of 0 percent (p = 0.00016). multivariate survival analysis showed that combination of blood basophilia and bone marrow blasts had the strongest predictive relationship to survival time. we conclude that a combination of pretreatment factors identifies different risk subcategories in cml patients and is helpful in assessing the overall prognosis and the treatment approach.

Open Journal of Civil Engineering (OJCE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ojce.2016.64043
Abstract: Estimation of the mechanical properties of concrete in an existing structure is possible with the results of surface hardness and ultrasound tests (nondestructive tests (NDTs)). For both the use of correlation curves is necessary, it is established between NDT and the results of the compressive strength of test specimens or extracted from structure. The objective of this study is to produce correlations between the results of surface hardness and ultrasound NDTs and the compressive strength of the structural concrete in the bleachers of a soccer stadium in the city of Cianorte, which is located in the northwest part of the state of Paraná, Brazil. This concrete structure, which is approximately 26 years old, has some defects, such as corrosion, concrete segregation and cracks. Concrete spalling in one of the slabs has recently raised some concern. Another significant issue is the absence of records regarding concreting of the bleachers’ structure. Therefore, mapping the reinforcement was initially performed according to the results of a surface hardness test, as recommended by standard [1]. An ultrasound test was simultaneously performed according to standard [2] for the same points employed in the surface hardness test. The concrete specimens were extracted according to the recommendations of standard [1] to determine compressive strength, perform the NDT and construct the correlation curves for the results. A total of 26 concrete specimens were obtained from all structures of the bleachers. From the methodology and the results of the study, highly reliable equations were obtained from the correlation curves among the compressive strength of the concrete specimens and the values of the surface hardness index and the ultrasound wave propagation velocity.

Abstract: Técnicas estatísticas para séries temporais foram utilizadas para analisar hidrogramas de nascentes e registros de precipita opluviométrica com o objetivo de caracterizar os fluxos de aqüíferos cársticos de um planalto do Vale do Ribeira. Asanálises estatísticas mostraram nascentes com características contrastantes: uma extremamente inercial, e outra que respondeprontamente aos impulsos de precipita o e retorna ao estágio pré-impulsional em pouco tempo. As diferen as s o explicadasa partir da geometria e dinamica do fluxo dos sistemas (evidenciados em testes com tra adores); dos diferentes estilos derecarga identificados pelo mapeamento de fei es cársticas de superfície e por modelos que relacionam o comportamento dofluxo com a estrutura da drenagem subterranea. A nascente inercial está associada a um sistema com estrutura de drenagemdistributiva e a uma recarga dispersa em pequenas bacias. A nascente diligente faz parte de um sistema caracterizado por umaestrutura de drenagem convergente (parte dela ao longo do principal sistema de cavernas do planalto) e a uma recargaconcentrada em grandes pontos de capta o associados às maiores bacias de recarga alóctone.
Use of Asymmetric Models to Adjust the Vitamin Intake Distribution Data for Older People  [PDF]
José Eduardo Corrente, Giovana Fumes
Health (Health) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/health.2016.89092
Abstract: One of the main interests in the nutrition field is to estimate the distribution of usual nutrient in-take. Data from vitamin intake generally present high asymmetry mainly to the presence of outliers. This can occur due to the variability of the diet and, in this case, robust estimation to get the distribution of the data can be required. Then, the aim of paper is to propose an alternative approach for estimating usual intake through asymmetric distributions with random effects applied to data set 10 vitamins obtained from a dietetic survey for 368 older people from Botucatu city, S?o Paulo, Brazil. In general, these asymmetric distributions include parameters related to mean, median, dispersion measures and such parameters provide good estimates for the intake distribution. In order to make some comparisons, a model fitted by National Cancer Institute (NCI) method with only for amount of nutrient intake was established using Akaike Information Criteria (AIC). NCI method is based on a Box-Cox transformation coupled with normal distribution but in case of asymmetric data, this transformation can be not useful. It was observed that, in the presence of outliers, the asymmetric models provided a better fit than the NCI method in the major of the cases. Then, these models can be an alternative method to estimate the distribution of nutrient intake mainly because a transformation for the data is no necessary and all the information can be obtained directly from the parameters.
