  • Adipose tissue is an endocrine organ made up of adipocytes, various stro-mal cells, resident and infiltrating immune cells, and an extensive endo-thelial network. Adipose secretory products, collectively referred to as adipokines, have been identified as contributors to the negative conse-quences of adipose tissue expansion that include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.

  • This book describes some devices that are commonly identified as tactile or force sensors. This is achieved with different degrees of detail, in a unique and actual resource, through the description of different approaches to this type of sensors. Understanding the design and the working principles of the sensors described here requires a multidisciplinary background of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, biology, etc.

  • Obesity and its associated disorders, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease, have now reached epidemic proportions in the Western world, resulting in dramatic increases in healthcare costs. Understanding the pro-cesses and metabolic perturbations that contribute to the expansion of adi-pose depots accompanying obesity is central to the development of appropriate therapeutic strategies.

  • DIESEL ENGINES pushrods and rocker arms transfer the reciprocating motion generated by the camshaft lobes to the valves and injectors, opening and closing them as needed. The valves are maintained closed by springs. As the valve is opened by the camshaft, it compresses the valve spring. The energy stored in the valve spring is then used to close the valve as the camshaft lobe rotates out from under the follower. Because an engine experiences fairly large changes in temperature (e.g.

  • Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) tools and techniques supply virtual environments that have key characteristics in common with our physical environment. Viewing and interacting with 3D objects is closer to reality than abstract mathematical and 2D approaches. Augmented Reality (AR) technology, a more expansive form of VR is emerging as a cutting-edge technology that integrates images of virtual objects into a real world.

  • Ten years ago, when we first began treading in the murky waters of ‘‘smart’’ materials and micro-systems, we had little information to guide us. Although there had already been rapid expansion in these technologies in the science and engineering fields, particularly in regard to sensor development, their entry into the design arena was, at best, idiosyncratic.

  • PLANT CELLS, UNLIKE ANIMAL CELLS, are surrounded by a relatively thin but mechanically strong cell wall. This wall consists of a complex mixture of polysaccharides and other polymers that are secreted by the cell and are assembled into an organized network linked together by both covalent and noncovalent bonds. Plant cell walls also contain structural proteins, enzymes, phenolic polymers, and other materials that modify the wall’s physical and chemical characteristics.

  • Inflammation can also be found in the intervertebral disks resulting in discitis and spondylitis, which can be seen as narrowing of the intervertebral space and destruction of the adjacent cover plates. Seldom synovitis and osteitis can be found in the atlantoaxial area leading to erosions and destruction of the lateral atlantoaxial joint. At the worst the joint is destabilized, this may cause cord compression and neurological loss of function.

  • Earlier in the year, when the affiliate rule was first implemented, the state expected that the planned expansion of Medicaid to non-elderly adults with incomes under 133% of poverty under the Affordable Care Act in 2014 would ensure that most of the low-income WHP clients would become eligible for Medicaid and that additional support might only be needed for those women with incomes between 138% and 185% of poverty.

  • The objective of the first part of the questionnaire was to gather information on the relative importance of different types of forest goods and services in the EU Member States. The respondents were asked to rank the relative importance of forest goods and services (from 1 – not important; to 5 – very important), according to their own perceptions about the total benefits forest goods and services provide to the society. The aim of the second part (Part B) of the questionnaire was to produce an overview of financing mechanisms used in the EU-27. For this purpose, the respondents...

  • Technically speaking, digital projection does not radically change classic film projection even though the mechanical projector head has been replaced by a digital head, the film spool by a hard disk drive and the platter system by a server. We have already paid utmost attention to these points in order to ensure that the projection quality practically remains the same. Of course, the picture is not visible on its photosensitive carrier anymore: It is from now on quantified...

  • In the late 1980s and again in the early-mid 1990s, the central government’s fiscal balance was threatened by a declining revenue share, and the CPI inflation rate rose to above 24 percent in 1994. As Figure 1 illustrates, the inflation was not the result of budget deficits – since the total budget deficit never exceeded 1.2 percent of GDP during this period – but, instead, resulted from credit expansion as the state banking system was used to fund essentially state expenditures. Between 1992 and 1995, M2 grew by an average annual rate of 36 percent, mostly due to...

  • Operations in the intermediate stage segregate some elements and group others, forming coherent representations. In late visual process- ing stages certain regions of the object are selected for further scrutiny, memories are activated, objects are recognized and associated with meanings. In the case of visual stimuli found to be aesthetically pleasing, these operations elicit emo- tional processes, which feedback into the system via attentional mechanisms.

  • More than half of flowering plants have a sophisticated mechanism for self-pollen rejection, named self-incompatibility. In the Brassicaceae family, the recognition specificity of a self-incompatibility system is achieved by the interaction of the stigmatic S-receptor kinase and its ligand S-locus cys-teine-rich protein, which are encoded by two tightly linked polymorphic genes.

  • The neurosciences have experienced tremendous and wonderful progress in many areas, and the spectrum encompassing the neurosciences is expansive. Suffice it to mention a few classical fields: electrophysiology, genetics, physics, computer sciences, and more recently, social and marketing neurosciences. Of course, this large growth resulted in the production of many books.

  • Appropriate treatment of smear-positive cases can render most of them noninfectious rapidly, generally within two weeks. Generally, infectivity decreases many fold in the first 2 days in most individuals on standard short course chemotherapy. Therefore, the most effective intervention for reducing infectiousness is treatment of the case, and institution of a mechanism which will guarantee provision of the medications, i.e. the patient will be on DOT. Under these circumstances, it is perfectly reasonable to treat most patients as an outpatient with a plan to ensure treatment completion....

  • International credit, defined here as foreign currency and cross-border credit, can pose particular risks to an economy that is experiencing rapid domestic credit growth. Financial crises in the past two decades have often followed periods of rapid credit expansion accompanied by buoyant asset prices in equity and real estate. In Asia, these risks became evident in the Asian financial crisis of 1997–98. More recently, the countries most affected by the global financial crisis have demonstrated these risks anew.

  • Rapid expansion in international credit bears watching because, in many boom-bust credit cycles in the past, such credit tended to grow faster than overall credit during the boom.5 We illustrate this broad finding with data from several European countries that have suffered credit booms and busts since 2000. Then, we draw a parallel with countries that were caught up in the Asian financial crisis of the late 1990s. By international credit, we refer to three components of total bank credit, the first two of which are types of cross-border credit.
