CLINICAL/METHODICAL ISSUE: Muscular injuries represent the most common musculoskeletal lesions. Especially in professional athletes an imaging clarification is essential in order to define the exact location of the lesion, the affected muscles, the extent and degree of the injury as well as to define possible concomitant complications. The best possible therapy can be initiated and a necessary rest period for a low risk resumption of sporting activity can be individually specified. STANDARD RADIOLOGICAL METHODS/METHODICAL INNOVATIONS: Due to technical improvements, for example mobile devices and thus increased rapid availability as well as relative cost-effectiveness compared to other modalities, the imaging evaluation of muscle injury would nowadays be unthinkable without ultrasound...

Howard Williams, Peter W McOwan
The use of computational systems to aid in the design of magic tricks has been previously explored. Here further steps are taken in this direction, introducing the use of computer technology as a natural language data sourcing and processing tool for magic trick design purposes. Crowd sourcing of psychological concepts is investigated; further, the role of human associative memory and its exploitation in magical effects is explored. A new trick is developed and evaluated: a physical card trick partially designed by a computational system configured to search for and explore conceptual spaces readily understood by spectators...

A unique example of a coordination system that creates optically pure crystals from a meso compound with D- and L-amino acids is reported. The 1:1 reaction of a newly prepared meso digold(I) complex, [Au₂(dcpe)(D-Hpen)(L-Hpen)] ([H₂1]), with Co(OAc)₂ under aerobic conditions yielded a cationic AuI₂CoIII trinuclear complex, [Au₂Co(dcpe)(D-pen)(L-pen)]+ [2]+, in which [1]²- acts as a hexadentate-N2,O2,S2 metalloligand to a CoIII center. Similar reactions with M(OAc)₂ (M = Ni and Zn) produced analogous but neutral AuI₂MII complexes, [Au₂M(dcpe)(D-pen)(L-pen)] ([3M])...

Antti Airola, Tapio Pahikkala
Kronecker product kernel provides the standard approach in the kernel methods' literature for learning from graph data, where edges are labeled and both start and end vertices have their own feature representations. The methods allow generalization to such new edges, whose start and end vertices do not appear in the training data, a setting known as zero-shot or zero-data learning. Such a setting occurs in numerous applications, including drug-target interaction prediction, collaborative filtering, and information retrieval...

REVIEW
Fabien Maldonado, Robert J Lentz, Richard W Light
The burden of pleural diseases has substantially increased in the past decade because of a rise in the incidence of pleural space infections and pleural malignancies in a patient population that is older and more immunocompromised and has more comorbidities. This complexity increasingly requires minimally invasive diagnostic options and tailored management. Implications for patients are such that the limitations of current diagnostic methods need to be addressed by multidisciplinary teams of investigators from the fields of imaging, biology, and engineering...

Accurate crystal structures and their experimental uncertainties, determined by X-ray diffraction/neutron diffraction techniques, are vital for crystal engineering studies, such as polymorph stability and crystal morphology calculations. Because of differences in crystal growth and data measurement conditions, crystallographic databases often contain multiple entries of varying quality of the same compound. The choice of the most reliable and best quality crystal structure from many very similar structures remains an unresolved problem, especially for nonexperts...

BACKGROUND: The soybean cyst nematode (SCN), Heterodera glycines, is one of the most devastating diseases limiting soybean production worldwide. It is known that small RNAs, including microRNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs), play important roles in regulating plant growth and development, defense against pathogens, and responses to environmental changes. RESULTS: In order to understand the role of soybean miRNAs during SCN infection, we analyzed 24 small RNA libraries including three biological replicates from two soybean cultivars (SCN susceptible KS4607, and SCN HG Type 7 resistant KS4313N) that were grown under SCN-infested and -noninfested soil at two different time points (SCN feeding establishment and egg production)...

This study assessed perceptions of voluntary consent among 69 veterans who enrolled in a "jail diversion" program for co-occurring disorders. Perceptions were measured using modified items from the MacArthur Perceived Coercion and Negative Pressure Scales. A majority reported that they "chose to" (88.4%) or "felt free to" (85.5%) enroll. Most reported having "control over" (69.6%) and "more influence than anyone else" regarding (60.9%) their participation. About half reported that enrollment was "their idea" (49...

Correct positioning of patients during preoperative preparations is essential for success of the intervention to avoid any positioning trauma and to provide the best access to the targeted structures. The appropriate positioning (and optimal performance) means that complications are avoided and also makes an essential contribution to the smooth course of the surgical intervention. A correct position is essential particularly in urology because the organs assigned to the discipline of urology are anatomically mostly difficult to reach...

Sleep-related hypermotor epilepsy (SHE) is characterized by short-lasting seizures patterned by repetitive and stereotyped motor events in the same person. In autosomal dominant SHE, genetic factors play a well-known key role. In The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals, Charles Darwin quotes a plausible example of SHE illustrated by his cousin Sir Francis Galton: "the gentleman…lay fast asleep on his back in bed, raising his right arm slowly in front of his face, up to his forehead, and then dropping it with a jerk, so that the wrist fell heavily on the bridge of his nose...

REVIEW
F Saxer, H Eckardt
The Masquelet procedure or induced membrane technique presents a treatment option for relatively large osseous defects, e.g. after trauma, tumour resection or osteomyelitis even in the presence of unfavourable soft tissues. Initially developed at the end of the last century by the French surgeon Masquelet, the technique relies on a bioactive membrane that forms a foreign body reaction around a cement spacer. This spacer is implanted in the residual defect after rigorous debridement of bone and soft tissue during a first-stage procedure...

We propose a novel route for the quick and easy synthesis of a broad range of -lactams. The synthesis involves a [3+1] cyclization of amide dianions with diiodomethane. In opposition to the seminal work of Hirai et al, the reaction proved to be a general and efficient approach towards azetidinones. The easiness of the process was confirmed by DFT calculations and its power demonstrated by a diversity oriented synthesis of -lactams with 4 point of diversity brought by the choice of Ugi adducts as starting materials...

Bacteria are confronted with a multitude of stressors when occupying niches within the host. These stressors originate from host defense mechanisms, other bacteria during niche competition or result from physiological challenges such as nutrient limitation. To counteract these stressors, bacteria have developed a stress-induced network to mount the adaptations required for survival. These stress-induced adaptations include the release of membrane vesicles from the bacterial envelope. Membrane vesicles can provide bacteria with a plethora of immediate and ultimate benefits for coping with environmental stressors...

Percutaneous hepatic interventions are generally safe given the fact that liver closely abuts the abdominal wall and hence it is easily accessible. However, the superior portion of liver, adjacent to the diaphragm, commonly referred as the "hepatic dome", presents unique challenges for interventionists. Percutaneous access to the hepatic dome may be restricted by anatomical factors and special considerations may be required to avoid injury to the surrounding organs. The purpose of this review article is to discuss certain specific maneuvers and techniques that can enhance the success and safety of interventions in the hepatic dome...
