Benzophenones (BPs) family is one of the most frequently used groups of UV-filters. However, it has been reported by different authors that this kind of chemical compounds could be associated with some endocrine disrupting activity, genotoxicity and reproductive toxicity. In addition, different studies have evidenced the presence of BPs in several environmental matrices, indicating that conventional technologies of water treatment are not able to remove them, which generates the necessity of evaluating new alternatives of remediation...

The voltage-dependent current is a crucial parameter for determining the electrical properties of microelectronic devices. In this study, we aimed to extend a generic dc model to successfully explain the drain current (Id ) for metal-oxide semiconductors (MOSs) and thin-film transistors (TFTs) based on the gate voltage (Vg ), where the threshold voltage (Vth ) could also be obtained from this model in a nature manner. This dc model meets the requirements for compact modeling, including modeling computer circuit simulators...

Legal systems often rule that people own objects in their territory. We propose that an early-developing ability to make territory-based inferences of ownership helps children address informational demands presented by ownership. Across 6 experiments (N = 504), we show that these inferences develop between ages 3 and 5 and stem from two aspects of the psychology of ownership. First, we find that a basic ability to infer that people own objects in their territory is already present at age 3 (Experiment 1)...

OBJECTIVE: The interictal epileptic discharges (IEDs) occurring in stereotactic EEG (SEEG) recordings are in general abundant compared to ictal discharges, but difficult to interpret due to complex underlying network interactions. A framework is developed to model these network interactions. METHODS: To identify the synchronized neuronal activity underlying the IEDs, the variation in correlation over time of the SEEG signals is related to the occurrence of IEDs using the general linear model...

The determinants of microeukaryotic biogeography in coastal waters at a regional scale remain largely unclear. The coastal northern Zhejiang (in the East China Sea) is a typical subtropical marine ecosystem with multiple environmental gradients that has been extensively perturbed by anthropogenic activities. Thus, it is a valuable region to investigate the key drivers that shape microbial biogeography. We investigated microeukaryotic communities in surface waters from 115 stations in this region using 18S ribosomal RNA gene amplicon sequencing...

The Baixo Sabor hydroelectric scheme was recently constructed (began operating in 2015), blocking fish migration immediately at the river mouth. As a compensation measure for spawning habitat loss the Vilariça River which confluences with Sabor River, immediately downstream from the Baixo Sabor scheme, was chosen for rehabilitation site as an attempt to replace the spawning grounds lost in Sabor River for the potamodromous cyprinid Iberian barbel (Luciobarbus bocagei). Restoration activities included: placement of submerged weirs with fish ramps to increase the lotic/lentic sequence, bank reinforcement, boulder placement and river water profile increase...

The optimization of biological nitrogen removal (BNR) in sequencing batch reactors has become the aim of researchers worldwide in order to increase efficiency and reduce energy and operating costs. This research has focused on the nitrification phase as the limiting reaction rate of BNR. This paper analyzes different strategies and discusses different tools such as: factors for achieving partial nitrification, real-time control and monitoring for detecting characteristic patterns of nitrification/denitrification as end-points, use of modeling based on activated sludge models, and the use of data-driven modeling for estimating variables that cannot be easily measured experimentally or online...

BACKGROUND: Paranasal sinus osteoma is a common, asymptomatic, histologically benign, and slow-growing tumor. However, it can give rise to secondary pathologies such as a mucocele in about 50% of the cases. Rarely, intracranial and orbital extension is present leading to rhinoliquorrhea, pneumocephalus, or neurological and visual impairment, which might be potentially life-threatening. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 49-year old man presented with an acute frontal lobe syndrome and rhinoliquorrhea...

OBJECTIVE: To compare cardiac index (CI) between Proaqt/PulsioFlex® and esophageal Doppler (OD) and the ability of the PulsioFlex® to track CI changes induced by fluid challenge and secondly to assess the impact of the time interval between two auto-calibrations of PulsioFlex® on the accuracy of the measured CI. METHODS: In a single hospital, 49 intermediate-risk oncologic abdominal surgery patients were included in an observational study. We measured the cardiac Index (CI) provided by OD and by the Proaqt/PulsioFlex® before and after internal calibration, which were performed randomly at specific intervals after the initial one (30, 60, 90 and 120min)...
