The Aging Bladder in Females Evaluated by Urodynamics  [PDF]
M. C. de Albuquerque Neto, Leslie Clifford Noronha Araujo, Thome Decio Pinheiro Barros Junior, Joao Luiz Amaro, Flavia Cristina Morone Pinto, Fabio de Oliveira Vilar, Salvador Vilar Correia Lima
Open Journal of Urology (OJU) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/oju.2017.73008
Abstract: Aim: To determine whether bladder functions deteriorate with age. Methods: Data contained in electronic medical record (INFOMED?) were used in this institutional retrospective review. Analysis was done on the urodynamic studies in women over 18 years old conducted between May 2011 and November 2015. Patients with previous history of pelvic surgery or radiotherapy, neurological disease, vaginal prolapse greater than grade I, congenital urogenital malformations, urinary obstructive disease, diabetes, or the use of any medication that could interfere with bladder function were excluded from the analysis. The urodynamic parameters analyzed were the Maximum Cystometric Capacity (MCC), Voiding Volume (VV), Maximum Flow (Qmax), Bladder Compliance (BC), Detrusor Pressure at Maximum Flow (PdetQmax), Bladder Contractility Index (BCI), Bladder Voiding Efficiency (BVE) and Post-Void Residual Urine Volume (PVR). Patients were further stratified in five groups according to age (A—18 to 40; B—41 to 50; C—51 to 60; D—61 to 70; E—over 70 years old). Results: Out of 3103 urodynamic studies analyzed, 719 were eligible for the study. The average age of patients was 49.3 (+13.2) years old and in all evaluated parameters, statistically significant correlation between age and decline of bladder function was obtained (p < 0.05). Moreover, mathematical equations were presented to estimate the parameters values in relation to age. Conclusions: This study showed a decline in bladder storage function (reduction in MCC and BC) and in bladder emptying function (reduction in Qmax, PdetQmax, VV, BCI and BVE with an increase in PVR) with age.
Poderá o carrapato transmitir a lepra?: mais quatro amostras de culturas de bacilos acido-alcool resistentes obtidas de carrapatos (2 de "Amblyomma cajennense"e 2 de "Boophilus microplus") infectados em leprosos do Paraná: 3a nota

Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 1942, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02761942000300013
Abstract: the aa. carried out experiments in the leprosarium s?o roque, state of paraná, south brazil, to verify if the cattle tick boophilus microplus could be experimentally infected in lepers, which was true. the aa. tried also to be ascertained if boophilus microplus and amblyomma cajennense could change of hosts during their feedings which was true, both ticks continue feeding, the last species for many days, after being transferred from one to another leper. the junior a. describes in full their experiments and also a dermatites caused by tick bites. the senior a. brought to rio de janeiro most of the infected ticks for examination, which revealed a very high positivity. he smeared the sediments of lots of both species of ticks in loewenstein medium and after a variable periode of incubation at 37° c. he obtained four new samples of cultures of acid-fast organisms, two from amblyomma cajennense and two from boophilus microplus. these cultures are being studied and will be inoculated into laboratory animals. the senior a. inoculated new batches of white rats with sediments of many ticks infected in lepers. various hypotheses of both previous notes upon the subject now are verified facts. the a. is accumulating facts to draw the conclusions in the future. he also suggested the leprosy workers in the interior of the country to cooperate with him in such important studies, specially in the habitat of lepers in the rural zones of various states.
The Confrontation between General Relativity and Experiment
Will Clifford
Living Reviews in Relativity , 2001,
Abstract: The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analysing them are reviewed. Einstein's equivalence principle (EEP) is well supported by experiments such as the E tv s experiment, tests of special relativity, and the gravitational redshift experiment. Future tests of EEP and of the inverse square law will search for new interactions arising from unification or quantum gravity. Tests of general relativity at the post-Newtonian level have reached high precision, including the light deflection, the Shapiro time delay, the perihelion advance of Mercury, and the Nordtvedt effect in lunar motion. Gravitational wave damping has been detected in an amount that agrees with general relativity to half a percent using the Hulse-Taylor binary pulsar, and new binary pulsar systems may yield further improvements.When direct observation of gravitational radiation from astrophysical sources begins, new tests of general relativity will be possible.

Taijin-Kyofu-Sho: A subtype of social anxiety  [PDF]
Leslie Lim
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2013.34042
Abstract:

Taijin-Kyofu-Sho (TKS) has long been considered as a Japanese culture-bound form of social anxiety disorder, although subsequent case-reports from countries outside Japan have dispelled this notion. There are subtle yet distinct differences between TKS and DSM-defined social anxiety disorder (SAD). For instance, the TKS subject fears causing offence to others, whereas the SAD subject is more fearful of causing embarrassment to him/herself. Four sub-categories of TKS have been recognised of which the Jikoshu-kyofu variety resembles the olfactory reference syndrome (ORS) known to Western psychiatrists. There are two TKS subtypes, general (or simple) and offensive (delusional). The general subtype resembles social anxiety disorder, whereas the offensive subtype is characterised by delusions. True community-wide prevalence is unknown, although clinic studies estimate between 7.8% to 45.5% patients have a diagnosis of TKS, with a slight male preponderance. Cultural and societal norms engendering guilt, shame, and embarrassment are likely etiological factors. Treatment may consist of antidepressant and/or antipsychotic medications, while some patients may also benefit from cognitive behavior therapy.

Validation of a Questionnaire to Diagnose the Baumann Skin Type in All Ethnicities and in Various Geographic Locations  [PDF]
Leslie Baumann
Journal of Cosmetics, Dermatological Sciences and Applications (JCDSA) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jcdsa.2016.61005
Abstract: The Baumann Skin Typing System diagnoses patients as having one of 16 skin types based on their answers to a validated questionnaire [i] known as the Baumann Skin Type Indicator [ii]. The BSTI questionnaire has been tested over the last decade on over 200,000 people of various ages and ethnicities in different geographic locations around the world. In this study, data were collected from 52,862 patients to compare skin type prevalence between those who presented to doctor’s offices and those who took the quiz without supervision online. The most common skin types varied only slightly between patients that took the quiz online and those that completed the questionnaire in their doctor’s office. This indicates that the prevalence of skin types seen in the doctor’s office is similar to that in the general population and that supervision is not necessary to get an accurate result on the BSTI. [iii] In addition, comparison of data gathered in China, Korea, and the US did not show a significant difference in skin type prevalence between Asian and Caucasian skin types. [iv] This study demonstrates that the English version of the BSTI is valid for English speaking patients online, and in doctors’ offices in the US, China and Korea.
Applying a “Hard Science” Disciplined Approach to Identify and Verify Chemical Properties for Safe Response, Handling, and Disposal  [PDF]
Clifford L. Holland
Journal of Environmental Protection (JEP) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jep.2016.73034
Abstract:

Personnel who may have to deal with the uncertain nature and properties of unknown chemicals at an environmental incident, hazardous waste site, industry or in a laboratory need a way to identify the actual risks and hazards they may face. This applies whether the personnel are emergency responders, forensic researchers or waste clean-up crews. There is, however, a quick-check system to identify chemical properties of labeled, unlabeled, unknown or mixed chemicals. The system uses pH paper, starch paper and a source of flame such as a barbeque lighter or Bunsen burner. The basic test takes less than 60 seconds and will identify or verify high-risk properties such as whether substances are oxidizers or reactive to heat, air or water, their range of flammability and their corrosiveness. The test results provide vital information for responders to make critical decisions, whether dealing with a laboratory spill or a full-scale hazardous material emergency. Using hard science helps in dealing with time-critical issues, such as when, or whether, to add water to modify a chemical reaction when a bad situation could turn into a disaster. Whether working with laboratory or industrial chemicals or responding to a major emergency, hard science can provide the information needed to approach the scene, secure the area, and keep unprotected and unauthorized personnel out. It identifies the physical and chemical properties of known, unknown and newly formed substances and allows personnel to assess the risk, hazards and potential scales of impact including when it is safe to respond or take other appropriate action.

International Journal of Molecular Sciences , 2009, DOI: 10.3390/ijms10073235
Abstract: When it comes to the marketing of the bioenergy brand, one of the catchiest slogans out these days is “25 by ‘25”. Adopted and supported by industries, academia and government agencies alike, this organization simply aims to supply 25 percent of our energy from renewable resources by the year 2025. By focusing its future efforts on wind, solar and biomass resources, the “25 by 25” initiative is expected to create new jobs, develop novel technologies, help mitigate the effects of global warming and reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

The Confrontation between General Relativity and Experiment
Will Clifford M.
Living Reviews in Relativity , 2006,
Abstract: The status of experimental tests of general relativity and of theoretical frameworks for analyzing them is reviewed. Einstein’s equivalence principle (EEP) is well supported by experiments such as the E tv s experiment, tests of special relativity, and the gravitational redshift experiment. Ongoing tests of EEP and of the inverse square law are searching for new interactions arising from unification or quantum gravity. Tests of general relativity at the post-Newtonian level have reached high precision, including the light deflection, the Shapiro time delay, the perihelion advance of Mercury, and the Nordtvedt effect in lunar motion. Gravitational wave damping has been detected in an amount that agrees with general relativity to better than half a percent using the Hulse-Taylor binary pulsar, and other binary pulsar systems have yielded other tests, especially of strong-field effects. When direct observation of gravitational radiation from astrophysical sources begins, new tests of general relativity will be possible.
