  • A Carpentier annuloplasty ring was sutured. With the ring in position, the chordae were retrieved from the ventricle, and both needles were woven into the prolapsing segment, straddling the point of maximal prolapse. Two or three bites were taken through the coaptation surface to the line of coaptation. The two arms of the suture were tied on the atrial surface with a slip-knot to bring the leaflet to the annular plane, and a clip was placed across the knot. Pericardial pledgets could be used if the leaflet tissue seems fragile.

  • Sub-Saharan Africa has the worst indicators of women’s health—particularly of reproductive health—of any world region. These indicators include the highest number of HIV-positive women and the highest infant, maternal, and HIV-related death rates worldwide. The ability of a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body and her reproductive life are key to improving these indicators.

  • One likely reason for the lack of attention to the older population is that fertility in Cambodia has remained high and thus the share of the population who are age 60 and over is relatively small, especially compared to a number of other southeast Asian countries where population aging is far more rapid. According to the most recent UN assessment, only 5.6 percent of the Cambodian population is aged 60 and over although it is projected to slowly increase in the coming decades (United Nations 2005).

  • We have recently completed a thorough review of the published literature of RCT evidence for BMJ Clinical Evidence (Barry et al 2012). In preparing this review for Clinical Evidence of the clinical trial literature for interventions for schizophrenia, a comprehensive search strategy identified all relevant publications, and those studies meeting reasonable quality standards were then included as described. Despite such a careful triage process, that aimed to include only good quality RCTs, it is clear that many studies we included have serious failings.

  • Bonfand’s style takes full advantage of the freedom allowed by the essay form. In the first place, Bonfand’s use of bibliographical materials follows a strict parti-pris. While he gives great importance to the filmmakers, or painters, own words, often quoting interviews or autobiographies and excavates and values non-produced film scenarios (in the two chapters on Antonioni), he does not waste time nor room by quoting existing books on the subjects he approaches. This orientation is sometimes embarrassing and weakens the intellectual honesty of the book as a whole. ...

  • The federal government enacted the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAAA) shortly after the repeal of Prohibition, and this legislation has served as the primary vehicle for regulating alcohol advertising in the United States. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has primary responsibility for enforcing the FAAA. Consumer protection and advertising regulation are not, however, areas of expertise for the TTB, which is located within the Department of the Treasury, and the FAAA provides only limited authority and guidance.

  • If a design feature makes it 1% more likely that someone's eye will be drawn to a nonuseful visual element, the only way it can go is that more people will be lost. Either they'll get fed up & give up at that point, run out of time, get confused, or guess and take a wrong turn and then get confused. It's a percentage game, and it's the designer's job to optimise the percentages to get more people through to satisfactory outcomes. “Packaging” elements that are repeated on every page are pretty dead. They communicate once and then get ignored and can't communicate much more, so pixels...

  • The Driving Mechanism works the same as the Steering Mechanism. When a command is received to go forwards the SCRX2BC creates a voltage at pin 11 which turns on Q2. This then turns on Q5 and Q8 and current flows from the batteries through Q5, then through the driving motor, and then through Q8 to ground. Similarly to go backwards the voltage is created at pin 10, and Q3, Q6, and Q7 are turned on. The small gear on the Motor drives the Middle Gear, which drives the gear on the rear wheels axle, making the wheels move. Note that the gears on the Motor...

  • The most commonly used technique for planting is stump budding using improved varieties or clones (Status of… 2000). The quality of the planting material is the most important factor affecting the profitability and economics of the plantation and has to be judiciously selected depending on the local situation. Different situations warrant planting of particular types that have the capability to resist the adverse factors and produce good results. Accordingly different varieties like RRII 105, PB 217, GT 1 are commonly cultivated.
