Cardiopulmonary bypass in Jehovah's Witnesses
K Frimpong-Boateng, E Aniteye, LA Sereboe, VOS Amuzu
West African Journal of Medicine , 2003,
Abstract: Jehovah's Witnesses do not accept heterologous blood transfusion for religious reasons. Autologous transfusions are also rejected if there is no continuous contact between the circulation and the autologous blood. There is, therefore , the need to adopt methods which will avoid transfusion of heterologous blood in elective cases as far as Jehovah's Witnesses are concerned. We report two cases where pre-operatively administration of nutritional supplements, haematenics, erythropoietin, antimalarials and the modification of the extra-corporeal circulation bypass circuit allowed successful open-heart surgery using cardiopulmonary bypass.
Entre o cordel e o Pau-Brasil: uma metáfora diacro-sincr nica do Brasil
John Gadzekpo Rex Amuzu
Revista Mal-estar e Subjetividade , 2004,
Abstract: Within the framework of a research trip about the desafio the dialogued satirical vein of the Brazilian cordel literature in the mainly North-eastern region of Brazil, several aspects of Brazilian civilization come up for commentary, as they emerge in the bibliographic discoveries made along this trip, as well as in what are perceived as related matters (notably Afro-Brazilian literature and culture), in certain institutions and in the very human and natural landscape. Based on a metaphor rooted in the qualities of the almost extinct brazilwood, observations and analyses of the status of cordel literature and the present socio-economic situation of Brazil are made in the light of an exemplary symbiotic relationship postulated in the said metaphor. In essence, therefore, this essay attempts a pluralist and holistic (re)interpretation of Brazil in which a synchronic journey induces a corollary diachronic trip along often forgotten paths in the history of Brazil, calling for a rethinking and reappraisal of several (including literary) aspects of the existing strategies, orientations and policies regarding the identity and making of Brazilian society.

The entropy of a mixture of probability distributions
Alexis Vos
Entropy , 2005, DOI: 10.3390/e7010015
Abstract: If a message can have n different values and all values are equally probable, then the entropy of the message is log(n). In the present paper, we investigate the expectation value of the entropy, for arbitrary probability distribution. For that purpose, we apply mixed probability distributions. The mixing distribution is represented by a point on an infinite dimensional hypersphere in Hilbert space. During an `arbitrary' calculation, this mixing distribution has the tendency to become uniform over a flat probability space of ever decreasing dimensionality. Once such smeared-out mixing distribution is established, subsequent computing steps introduce an entropy loss expected to equal $\\frac{1}{m+1} + \\frac{1}{m+2} + ... + \\frac{1}{n}$, where n is the number of possible inputs and m the number of possible outcomes of the computation.

Conservative treatment of a comminuted cervical fracture in a racehorse
NJ Vos
Irish Veterinary Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/2046-0481-61-4-244
Abstract: There are seven cervical vertebrae in the horse: C1-C7. Cervical vertebral fractures are not uncommon in horses but usually involve the more caudal cervical vertebrae [25,24]. Vaughan and Mason [34] reported 10 fractures of the axis over a three-year period in the United Kingdom. None of these were odontoid peg fractures; instead they involved the caudal body of C2. Krook and Maylin [21] reported three fractures of the cervical vertebrae in a total of 192 breakdown injuries in the United States, none of which involved the dens. This case report describes a fracture of the odontoid process of the axis (C2).The odontoid peg originates embryonically from the body of C1. The axis (C2) has separate centres of ossification for the dens (odontoid peg), head, body and caudal epiphysis. The physis of the odontoid peg closes by the age of seven to nine months [9]. Cranial cervical fractures, such as fractures of the axial dens, are therefore more commonly seen in young horses (less than six months old) [26,32,36,23,24].Young, Excitable animals may injure the immature cervical vertebrae by rearing and falling during play or training. Hyperextension and/or hyperflexion of the neck have been reported, resulting in (sub) luxation lesions of the occipito-atlantoaxial region, with or without various combinations of vertebral body and articular process fractures [13,18,32,28,25,24]. Adult horses are more commonly injured in high-speed paddock or race accidents [24]. Clinically, foals can show variable neurological signs ranging from paraplegia and tetra-paraplegia to less severe ambulatory neurological deficits. Significant narrowing of the spinal canal due to atlanto-axial instability leads to the development of an inflammatory pannus which can progress and result in spinal cord compression and neurological deficits [26,32,23,25,24]. Adults are more likely to be non-ambulatory after fractures of the cervical spinal vertebrae, although the majority of these fractures include the mor
On poetry – Entering heaven through the ear of a raindrop: An ARS Poetical reading
JA Vos
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2009,
Abstract: This article investigates the uniqueness of poetry. Special attention is given to the ars poetica of the poetry of Cas Vos. Other poems are also discussed. The binding force of metaphors in poetry is considered. The essence and expressiveness of poetry are explained through several different poems. The end of the journey of poetry is concluded with a sonnet by Robert Pinsky.
Godsbeelde in die liturgie
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2010,
Abstract: Images of God in the liturgy In this article, the research hypothesis is that a one-sided liturgy leads to a watered-down image of God. When room for God is not created in the liturgy, God is not encountered in all God’s glory. As a result, worshippers cannot fully bring homage to God’s glory. From this perspective, the article explores the different faces of God in the liturgy. These diverse images of God lead to a rich diversity of views and experiences of God by worshippers.
Om die horison te verken: Op soek na 'n eietydse homiletiese hermeneutiek
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2008,
Abstract: In this article, the author takes up the Ricoeurian idea of a dual hermeneutic. The article emphasizes the need for critical homiletics, not only to make the invaluable and necessary recourse to a “hermeneutics of suspicion” but also moves beyond it to a “hermeneutics of recollection” that is sympathetic to religion. The concept of a second naiveté is also considered in relation to the dialectic between the two hermeneutical extremes. HTS Theological Studies Vol. 64 (1) 2008: pp.111-120
