Training in the biological sciences, and indeed in most sciences,
appropriately emphasizes mastery of techniques and theory –
essential elements of any original research endeavor. The less
glamorous steps to successful research are often neglected in the
formal training programs of scientists – such as how to plan a study
adequately, secure research funds effectively, present results (written
and oral) clearly and interestingly, and present qualifications in a
re ´sume ´ .
Chapter 16 - Developing the research proposal. This chapter includes contents: Research proposal, purposes of the research proposal, typical proposal content, general proposal framework, proposal title,...
When we first proposed this book, we set a goal of writing a different kind of SharePoint
book. We did not want a reference that repeated the software development kit, nor did we
want a how-to book that explained how to configure the out-of-the-box functionality. Instead,
we envisioned a book that helped developers apply the Microsoft Office platform to customer
The aim of this book is to give a treatment of the actively developed domain of Ubiquitous computing. Originally proposed by Mark D. Weiser, the concept of Ubiquitous computing enables a real-time global sensing, context-aware informational retrieval, multi-modal interaction with the user and enhanced visualization capabilities. In effect, Ubiquitous computing environments give extremely new and futuristic abilities to look at and interact with our habitat at any time and from anywhere.
The intent of the Preliminary Design submittal is to provide a formal opportunity for WSDOT,
the Contractor, various design team disciplines, and other approved project stakeholders to
review the construction documents in order to ensure that: the design is progressing
appropriately and proceeding in the right direction; the plans reflect Contractor requirements for
construction; design features are coordinated; and there are no fatal flaws within a given
discipline or between disciplines.

P-glycoprotein at the blood-brain barrier: kinetic modeling of 11C-desmethylloperamide in mice using a 18F-FDG μPET scan to determine the input function
Lieselotte Moerman1*, Dieter De Naeyer2, Paul Boon3 and Filip De Vos1
Purpose: The objective of this study is the implementation of a kinetic model for 11C-desmethylloperamide (11CdLop) and the determination of a typical parameter for P-glycoprotein (P-gp) functionality in mice.
The activity C “Operational” (Coordinated by LIG) will receive the inputs from the
strategic group and try to include them in a computer application where expert
knowledge can be reproduced as much as possible in a standardized and automatic
way. As a typical example, the methods of estimation of missing value that are
proposed by an expert in activity B for a particular example should be transformed into
automatic procedures that could be applied to a wider set of data.
Countries have responded well to the surveys. 1346 countries have responded
to the Level 1 survey, corresponding to some 70% of UN member states with
fairly even distribution among geographical regions and HDI groupings (Figure
1.3 and Table 1.1). The response rate to particular questions was consistently
very high at over 95% with very few questions having multiple answers
from some countries.
The DOE Fundamentals Handbooks represent the needs of various DOE nuclear facilities'
fundamental training requirements. To increase their applicability to nonreactor nuclear
facilities, the Reactor Operator Fundamentals Manual learning objectives were distributed to the
Nuclear Facility Training Coordination Program Steering Committee for review and comment.
To update their reactor-specific content, DOE Category A reactor training managers also
reviewed and commented on the content.
Leder et al. (2004) have recently proposed a comprehensive model of visual aes-
thetic preference and perception, which includes ﬁve processing stages: perceptual
analysis of the visual stimulus, implicit memory integration, explicit classiﬁcation,
cognitive mastering, and the emergence of a cognitive state, resulting from the pre-
vious stages, and an affective state, that results from the continuous interactions
between previous stages and affective systems in the brain.

"This book is a timely collection of reviews of fundamental processes in the compartments and chemical components of the cerebral micro-environments...its contents prove rewarding reading for the neuroclinician." - Clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery "The book targets researchers, graduate students, and educators who face constant challenges on how to modify the external environment of a specific neuron in order to obtain specific behavioral results. The author is a credible authority on the subject but I think the scope of the book has an audience beyond that proposed by the author.

Numerical evaluation of laminar heat transfer enhancement in nanofluid flow in coiled square tubes
Agus Pulung Sasmito1,2, Jundika Candra Kurnia1* and Arun Sadashiv Mujumdar1,2
Abstract Convective heat transfer can be enhanced by changing flow geometry and/or by enhancing thermal conductivity of the fluid. This study proposes simultaneous passive heat transfer enhancement by combining the geometry effect utilizing nanofluids inflow in coils.

Measurement of the extinction coefficients of magnetic fluids
Xiaopeng Fang, Yimin Xuan*, Qiang Li
Abstract A novel spectral transmittance approach for measuring the extinction coefficient of magnetic fluids is proposed. The measuring principle and accuracy of the approach are analysed. Experiments are conducted to measure the extinction coefficient of magnetic fluids with different particle volume fractions.

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy vs acute myocardial infarction: diagnostic utility of subtle ECG differences
Asma Saba Syed and Umair Khalid*
Abstract The clinical findings of Takatsubo Cardiomyopathy and acute myocardial infarction can be very similar. While Takatsubo cardiomyopathy rarely leads to severe complications, acute myocardial infarction can be life threatening.

Flat edge modes of graphene and of Z2 topological insulator
Ken-Ichiro Imura1,2*, Shijun Mao2,3, Ai Yamakage2 and Yoshio Kuramoto2
Abstract A graphene nano-ribbon in the zigzag edge geometry exhibits a specific type of gapless edge modes with a partly flat band dispersion. We argue that the appearance of such edge modes are naturally understood by regarding graphene as the gapless limit of a Z2 topological insulator.
