#1
Nicholas Williamson, Tsuyoshi Kobayashi, David Outhet, Lee C Bowling
Cyanobacterial survival following their release in water from major headwaters reservoirs was compared in five New South Wales rivers. Under low flow conditions, cyanobacterial presence disappeared rapidly with distance downstream in the Cudgegong and Hunter Rivers, whereas the other three rivers were contaminated for at least 300 km. Cyanobacterial survival is likely to be impacted by the geomorphology of each river, especially the extent of gravel riffle reaches (cells striking rocks can destroy them) and by the different turbulent flow conditions it produces within each...

BACKGROUND: Patients with end-stage heart failure on left ventricular assist devices (LVADs) are predisposed to a high incidence of stroke. Preoperative factors associated with increased stroke risk are poorly understood. METHODS: We performed a single-center retrospective review of all patients from 2009 to 2014 in whom a rotary flow LVAD was implanted. All patients with symptoms of a cerebrovascular event underwent a non-contrast head computed tomography scan...

The assessment of marijuana use quantity poses unique challenges. These challenges have limited research efforts on quantity assessments. However, quantity estimates are critical to detecting associations between marijuana use and outcomes. We examined accuracy of marijuana users' estimations of quantities of marijuana they prepared to ingest and predictors of both how much was prepared for a single dose and the degree of (in)accuracy of participants' estimates. We recruited a sample of 128 regular-to-heavy marijuana users for a field study wherein they prepared and estimated quantities of marijuana flower in a joint or a bowl as well as marijuana concentrate using a dab tool...

This study assessed the reliability and validity of segment measured accelerations in comparison to front foot contact (FFC) ground reaction force (GRF) during the delivery stride for cricket pace bowlers. Eleven recreational bowlers completed a 30-delivery bowling spell. Trunk- and tibia-mounted inertial measurement units (IMUs) were used to measure accelerations, converted to force, for comparisons to force plate GRF discrete measures. These measures included peak force, impulse and the continuous force-time curve in the vertical and braking (horizontal) planes...

Unlike typical polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, such as coronene, which are flat and planar, corannulene is a molecular bowl of carbon. It can be imagined as the cap region of fullerene C60 or an end of a single-walled carbon nanotube. This structural distinction manifests itself in unique properties. For example, corannulene exhibits bowl-flipping dynamics, electron accepting capability, and formation of a ball-in-socket type of interaction with C60. These varied properties allow for application of corannulene in a myriad of disciplines ranging from organic electronics and sensing to energy storage and self-assembly...

Who and what can define what success is in research? With the United Kingdom's seven-yearly Research Excellence Framework and recent anniversaries such as the 40th of the Journal of Advanced Nursing providing an opportunity to look back and assess progress made and successes achieved. But how much do we do this as individual researchers?. Research success in nursing occurs mostly in a small disciplinary goldfish bowl. While the profession has progressed in terms of the number of journals, professors and volume of nursing research, whether this research and those leading it have been successful is debatable (Thompson, 2003a,b; Thompson & Watson, 2009)...

Oral microparticles (MPs) have been considered as promising drug carriers in the treatment of ulcerative colitis (UC). Here, a facile strategy based on a conventional emulsion-solvent evaporation technique was used to fabricate bowl-shaped MPs (BMPs), and these MPs loaded with anti-inflammatory drug (curcumin, CUR) during the fabrication process. The physicochemical properties of the resultant BMPs were characterized by dynamic light scattering, scanning electron microscope, confocal laser scanning microscope and X-ray diffraction as well as contact angle goniometer...

OBJECTIVES: Stroke-associated pneumonia (SAP) is common and associated with adverse outcomes. Data on its impact beyond 1 year are scarce. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This observational study was conducted in a cohort of stroke patients admitted consecutively to a tertiary referral center in the east of England, UK (January 2003-April 2015). Logistic regression models examined inpatient mortality and length of stay (LOS). Cox regression models examined longer-term mortality at predefined time periods (0-90 days, 90 days-1 year, 1-3 years, and 3-10 years) for SAP...

Blind people adopt their remaining intact senses to perceive the world for tasks such as determining the water level in a bowl. Pouring water into a bowl generates water sounds and echoes reflected in the bowl. This research develops a bowl with increased echo (called an echo bowl), and analyzes the accuracy of water levels perceived by visually impaired people using a container or a kettle to pour water into a common bowl or an echo bowl. The analysis of factors of pouring and filled equipment indicates that the container has a significantly lower water level error than the kettle when pouring water...

The use of both hands simultaneously when manipulating objects is fairly commonplace, but it is not known what factors encourage people to use two hands as opposed to one during simple tasks such as transport. In particular, we are interested in three possible transport strategies: unimanual transport, handing off between hands, and symmetric bimanual transport. In this study, we investigate the effect of object size, weight, and starting and ending position (configuration) as well as the need to balance the object on the use of these three strategies in a bowl-moving task...

Many genetic causes of developmental delay and/or intellectual disability (DD/ID) are extremely rare, and robust discovery of these requires both large-scale DNA sequencing and data sharing. Here we describe a GeneMatcher collaboration which led to a cohort of 13 affected individuals harboring protein-altering variants, 11 of which are de novo, in MED13; the only inherited variant was transmitted to an affected child from an affected mother. All patients had intellectual disability and/or developmental delays, including speech delays or disorders...
