  • During stress (coughing or straining) the intraurethral pressure rises in normal patients. The rise in pressure within the urethra precedes the rise in pressure in the bladder by 160-240 milliseconds (Enhorning 1961, Constantinou and Govan 1982, van der Kooi et al. 1984, Pieber et al. 1998). This means, that the increased pressure within the urethra during stress must be due to an active muscle contraction and cannot be a passive transmission of the abdominal pressure.

  • Previous data has shown the need for better cancer pain management. UK Cancer Deaths numbered 153,397 in 2004 (UK National audit Office reports 2000, 2004). A conservative estimate has suggested that 10% fail to receive effective relief by WHO guidelines; however, this is an underestimation given recent surveys (EPIC 2007, Valeberg, 2008) which show that, in reality, upwards of 30% of patients receive poor pain control, especially in the last year of their lives.. Thirty percent represents 46,020 patients “failing per year”.

  • This group constitutes the majority of dietary antioxidants (and also of secondary plant metabolites). Plants typically produce polyphenols as a defence against herbivores and various stresses in general. It is estimated that in Westernized countries, polyphenol intake is approx. 0.4-1g/d and capita (reviewed by Bouayed and Bohn, 2010), with higher intake for persons following a vegetarian diet. Food sources that are especially rich in polyphenols include, among others, potato, plums, leafy vegetables, whole grain products, and coffee (Souci et al., 2000). ...

  • Against the backdrop of the close connection between the implementation of monetary policy and the processing of payments through the central bank, the Bundesbank pays particular attention to the encouragement of large-value payments.

  • Several filers cited subjects for providing misleading information about real estate securities or securitized commercial mortgages. One filer cited a former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for failing to disclose investment risks in certain CDOs, CMOs and trust preferred securities. The CEO had managed the investment portfolio, supposedly with a “very high” rate of return, and received large bonus payments. Later, the filer determined the CEO had misled bank management about the risks.

  • Receptors for the key female reproductive hormones, estrogens, are found throughout the entire brain including prefrontal cortex, hypothalamus, neocortex, hippocampus, amygdala, striatum, and brain stem. The neurotransmitter systems involved in depression (serotonin, norepinephrine, dopamine, cetylcholine, GABA, glutamate) are regulated by the action of estrogen. Research suggests that women may have increased susceptibility to depression and mood disorders during two key lifecycle transitions: pregnancy and the postpartum period, and perimenopause.

  • The impact that physical and psychological violence have on the health of an older person is exacerbated by the ageing process and diseases of old age. It is more difficult for the elderly to leave an abusive relationship or to make correct decisions because of the physical and cognitive impairments that usually come with old age. In some places, kinship obligations and the use of the extended family network to resolve difficulties may also lessen the ability of older people, particularly women, to escape from dangerous situations.

  • Non-visible prostate cancer on TRUS has been increased because of the advances in PSA screening. (Ohori, et al.2003) However, there are still occurrences of hypoechoic lesions suspicious for cancer. To obtain an appropriate tissue sample from suspicious lesions, it is better to make the needle tip facing the rectum (Figure 1, 2). Otherwise, the needle tip slips away from the prostate so that it may result in inappropriate samples and missing lesions. This is particularly true when the biplane ultrasound probe is used which is close to parallel to the rectum.

  • Though some pension funds – mostly larger, more sophisticated investors - are able to invest at the riskier end of the spectrum (i.e. in start-up, venture capital type projects focusing on clean tech and other innovations), this will only ever constitute a small percentage of their portfolios. The broad mass of pension funds will be more interested in lower risk investments (i.e. in deployable renewables etc.

  • Many students in the surveys singled out organ music as being particularly detrimental to their viewing experiences. Overall, 43 percent of respondents in the initial survey were neutral towards a piano or organ score, with an addition- al 33.3 percent noting that such music detracted from their engagement with the films. The consensus of the large focus group for the Ballet Mechanique screen- ing was that there would have been diminished interest in the film if an organ score were used. “Organ music would be so distracting, esp.

  • Until recently, the planet was a large world in which human activities and their effects were neatly compartmentalized within nations, within sectors (energy, agriculture, trade), and within broad areas of concern (environment, economics, social). These compartments have begun to dissolve. This applies in particular to the various global 'crises' that have seized public concern, particularly over the past decade. These are not separate crises: an environmental crisis, a development crisis, an energy crisis. They are all one....

  • In the 1960s radiation therapy was considered an empirical, clinical discipline with a relatively low probability of success. This situation has changed considerably during the past 40 years. Radiation therapy is based heavily on fields such as physics, mathematics, computer science and radiation biology as well as electrical and mechanical engineering, making it a truly interdisciplinary field, unparalleled by any other clinical discipline. Now radiation therapy can be applied so safely, precisely and efficiently that the previously feared side effects no longer play a role.

  • At the outset it should be stressed that the published data available for GHGE for food and drinks is very limited and the values are only approximate. Values can vary between different sources of data, with inconsistencies partly explained by differences in the assumptions made in the calculations and methodologies used to estimate GHGEs. While this makes it difficult to combine datasets, the general hierarchy of GHGEs from different food groups is reasonably consistent.

  • An estimated 3 to 4 million Californians are predicted to remain uninsured in 2019. Of those, slightly more than 1 million will not be eligible for coverage options under the ACA due to immigration status. Another 800,000 to 1.2 million will be eligible for Medi-Cal or Healthy Families. If and when they seek care, they will have the ability to enroll in coverage. Robust outreach and education can also decrease the number of uninsured who are not aware of coverage opportunities and are therefore less likely to seek care or receive preventive services.

  • From this mechanical standardization of consumable goods it follows, on the one hand, that the demand for goods settles upon certain defined lines of production which handle certain materials of definite grade, in certain, somewhat invariable forms and proportions; which leads to well−defined methods and measurements in the processes of production, shortening the average period of "ripening" that intervenes between the first raw stage of the product and its finished shape, and reducing the aggregate stock of goods necessary to be carried for the supply of current wants, whether ...

  • All faithful Muslims are thus involved in a continuous ‘greater jihad’, which is largely nonviolent. The ‘lesser jihad’, or war, is commanded by Allah but must be carried out according to strict rules. There is a sense in which the lesser jihad is both a ‘Holy War’ and ‘Just War’. But the purpose pf the lesser jihad (or war) is not to make others Muslim, although some (Muslims and non-Muslim)...

  • Part of the reason that new car manufacturers can choose to maintain prices on their new cars (and adjust market share instead) is that a manufacturer arguably has market power in the sale of a particular car. This means that the manufacturer should consider the elasticity of demand for that car before reducing prices.

  • One development has been the amendments and proposed amendments to several Federal standards that serve as the basis for crashworthiness testing. As mentioned previously, the frontal crash program is based on FMVSS No. 208 “Occupant Crash Protection.” Amendments to this standard will soon require vehicles to comply at the same speed as NCAP, use more advanced injury criteria, and different sized dummies. These amendments will be phased in between September 1, 2007 and September 1, 2011.
