DGGE Identification of Microorganisms Associated with Borrelia burgdorferi Sensu Lato- or Anaplasma phagocytophilum-Infected Ixodes ricinus Ticks from Northwest Norway
Ann-Kristin Tveten,Andreas Riborg,Hanne Tjelle Vadseth
International Journal of Microbiology , 2013, DOI: 10.1155/2013/805456
Abstract: Ticks acquire a wide range of microorganisms as a natural part of their lifecycle. Bacteria, viruses, and protozoa can be transmitted to ticks during feeding and free-living phases. DGGE profiling is a molecular method to describe the microbial population associated with ticks and demonstrate some of the complexity and variety of tick-borne microorganisms. The present study profiled a total of 120 I. ricinus ticks, which were divided into three equally sized groups. We found that B. burgdorferi s.l.-infected ticks presented a pattern consisting of bacterial Pseudomonas spp. (67.5%), Bacillus spp. (50%), and Sphingomonas spp. (77.5%), while A. phagocytophilum-infected ticks were associated with Pseudomonas spp. (82.5%) and Sphingomonas spp. (57.5%). All profiles had one or more Pseudomonas species present, and the intramitochondrial endosymbiont Candidatus Midichloria mitochondrii was present in more than 25% of the samples. Statistical analysis demonstrated that the microbial communities were not significantly different between the groups and that the groups could not be characterised by a specific microbial population. 1. Introduction Complex microbial communities are found in most natural ecosystems and are composed of a great variety of microorganisms [1]. Ticks have the potential to acquire microorganisms in all stages of their lifecycle, and they are associated with a large diversity of bacteria, viruses, and protozoa [2]. Some of these microorganisms are pathogens that are acquired while feeding on various hosts, while others are related to the environment where ticks reside during their free-living phases [2, 3]. Tick-borne zoonoses can cause severe and fatal infections in both humans and animals [4]. A number of tick-borne pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoa have been linked to diseases such as Lyme disease (LD), anaplasmosis (formerly ehrlichiosis), tularaemia, babesiosis, and tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) [5]. Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato comprises a group of Borrelia species that cause LD worldwide, and in particular, three Borrelia genospecies—Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia afzelii, and Borrelia garinii—are associated with human disease in Europe [6–8]. A fourth genospecies has been identified among Norwegian ticks: Borrelia valaisiana [9]. The prevalence of Lyme disease along the Norwegian coastline varies from approximately 25% in southern Norway to a prevalence of 14–18% in northwest Norway [9–11]. Anaplasma phagocytophilum causes a tick-borne rickettsial infection known as anaplasmosis [12, 13].
Patient participation in relation to life style changes—A literature review  [PDF]
Hanne Konradsen, Hanne Troest Nielsen, Marianne Thrane Larsen, Carrinna Hansen
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2012.22005
Abstract: The objective of this literature review was to identify and examine research where Patient Participation was used as a part of intervention targeting general life style among patients who comes in contact with a nurse. A literature search were conducted and included papers where judged by the researcher using recommendation from The Danish Centre for Clinical Guidelines. Analysis of the papers was carried out using Per?kyl? and Ruusuvauoris five components of Patient Participation as a theoretical template. It was concluded that the clinical effects of Patient Participation still needs to be clarified.
Neuropsychologic Testing in Chiasmal Patients Exhibiting Inattention in the Temporal Visual Space during Monocular Visual Testing  [PDF]
Hans C. Fledelius, Hanne Udesen
Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.71004
Abstract: Objective: By means of neuropsychologic tests, to further analyse a specific chiasmal monocular visual testing behaviour, here labelled temporal blocking because of the elective ignorance of optotypes on the temporal side of the chart. Often it is combined with impairment of reading and other cognitive impairments. Methods: Eighteen patients with lesions to the chiasm and some degree of temporal blocking aged 24 - 76 years underwent: 1) tests for visual neglect (Gothenburg test; behavioural inattention tests: star cancellation; line bisection); 2) visuo-perceptual tests; and 3) a test involving reading a crowded ten-letter and cipher bar. Results: The temporal blocking in two patients recovered after emergency neurosurgery and their results were normal when subsequently tested. Of the 16 patients with deficiencies, 14 had a poorer left eye (p < 0.01). Conclusions: The best neuropsychologic tests appeared to be those for visual neglect and the crowded bar test. In most cases, the right cerebral hemisphere’s lack of some crossed information from the left eye, usually needed for normative saccades and adjustment to visual space, may be a factor underlying the specific visual behaviour.
"Stakkars pappa" – hva kan far-barn-relasjonen si oss om barnerollen?
Kiil, Hanne

Abstract: “Poor daddy”–child's perspective and iconotext in three award-winning picture books. The Western dichotomy between children and adults characterize our opinion both on children and childhood. In this understanding framework the children are seen as something totally different from adults. Can artistic children's literature modify this habitual thinking about such hierarchical levels? The three books to examine closer have all won awards from Ministry of Culture as the best Norwegian picture book that year. Both Svein Nyhus: Pappa [Daddy] (1998), Hans Sande and Gry Moursund: Arkimedes og br dskiva [Archimedes and the Sandwich] (2000) and Stein Erik Lunde and yvind Torseter: Eg kan ikkje sove no [I Can't Sleep Now] (2008) are first-person narratives where the main character is a child. In such picture books visual and verbal point of view rarely are the same. The illustrations usually observe the central character from a distance and then allow the reader not only to adopt the narrator's point of view. What kind of ambiguities in the complex relationship between text and images give signals to the readers–and to the understanding of the narrator's position and perspective? What can this perspective and the iconotext in the three books tell us about today's children's role?
The quiet organization - why a common language does not always create a linguistic community
Hanne Tange
Language at Work : Bridging Theory and Practice , 2012,
Abstract: Imagine an office environment in an international company in Denmark. Around you employees are going about their daily routines. They write e-mails while chatting to their neighbours, exchange a few comments on their way to the photocopier, and gather in the break to discuss their boss, holiday plans or news on a joint project. Try then to imagine the same space, only without the noise: A work environment where employees perform their duties quietly and most of the chit-chat has disappeared. This is the situation in many organizations that have adopted English as their corporate language.

Conceptual Development and Dynamic Realism
Hanne Andersen
Studia Philosophica Estonica , 2012,
Abstract: This paper focuses on Thomas S. Kuhn's work on taxonomic concepts and how it relates to empirical work from the cognitive sciences on categorization and conceptual development. I shall first review the basic features of Kuhn's family resemblance account and compare to work from the cognitive sciences. I shall then show how Kuhn's account can be extended to cover the development of new taxonomies in science, and I shall illustrate by a detailed case study that Kuhn himself mentioned only briefly in his own work, namely the discovery of X-rays and radioactivity.
Genre in media production
Hanne Bruun
MedieKultur : Journal of Media and Communication Research , 2011,
Abstract: How do we explain changes in media genres? Are they the result of economic, technological or other kinds of structural forces; or are they the result of the change-producing agency of the media producers? And how are changes in media texts connected to contextual conditions for media production on micro-, meso- or macro levels? This article suggests that a theoretical approach using a pragmatic and socio-cognitive understanding of genre will help us to address these questions. This approach can highlight the interplay between human agency and different kinds of structural forces involved in specific professional media production cultures. Furthermore, it has the potential to integrate media texts and especially the micro- and meso levels of production. Using lessons learned and findings from my recent production study of Danish television satire, the article will argue three major methodological as well as knowledge-producing advantages of a genre approach.
