Much theory and research on emotion are based on the facial expressions of amateurs asked to pose
for still photographs. The theory of facial affect programs (FAPs; P. Ekman, 1972) was proposed
to account for the resulting expressions, most of which are patterns consisting of distinguishable
parts. In the present study, 4 Hollywood films noted for fine acting and realism were examined for
the facial expressions that accompany a basic emotion. In keeping with the theory of FAPs, profes-
sional actors judged as happy were found smiling in 97% (Duchenne smiling in 74%) of cases.
Since the mid-1980s, asthma rates in the U.S. have skyrocketed to
epidemic levels, particularly in young children. In the U.S. alone,
around 16 million people suffer from asthma. Asthma is a serious
chronic disorder, and in some cases life-threatening disease, of the
lungs characterized by recurrent attacks of bronchial constriction,
which cause breathlessness, wheezing, and coughing. Researchers
have found that pesticide exposure can induce a poisoning effect
linked to asthma.

In 1999 it was estimated that renal cell carcinoma (RCC) would account for
29,990 new cancer cases diagnosed in the United States (61% in men and 39%
in women), and lead to 11,600 deaths. RCC accounts for 2–3% of all malignancies
in adults and causes 2.3% of all cancer deaths in the United States
annually (1). Approx 4% of all RCC cases are bilateral at some point in the life
of the patient. Data from over 10,000 cases of renal cancer entered in the
Connecticut Tumor Registry suggests an increase in the incidence of renal
cancer from 1935–1989; in women the incidence increased from 0.
Analysis carried out in the city case studies show
that sound urban environmental management is
also good for climate adaptation. As the Bangkok
study shows, land subsidence, if not arrested, would
contribute a greater share of damage costs from
floods than a projected change in climate conditions.
Thus, addressing land subsidence and factors con-
tributing to it is important from the perspective of
Publishers are not dealing with an incremental increase in workload associated with peer review, but rather
a crush of manuscripts that must be fed through processes and procedures that may struggle to keep ahead
of this tide. When this is the case, publication editors and staff are often forced to quickly weed through
submissions and try to identify any “possible” candidates that can be processed into the peer review process,
triaging out ‘poorer’ or ‘less relevant’ manuscripts early in the process.
Mucositis Irritation and inflammation of the mucous membranes particularly afflicting the oral and anal mucosa, but potentially involving the gastrointestinal tract, may accompany cytotoxic chemotherapy. Mucositis is due to damage to the proliferating cells at the base of the mucosal squamous epithelia or in the intestinal crypts. Topical therapies, including anesthetics and barrier-creating preparations, may provide symptomatic relief in mild cases.
Syphilis, a chronic systemic infection caused by Treponema pallidum subspecies pallidum, is usually sexually transmitted and is characterized by episodes of active disease interrupted by periods of latency. After an incubation period averaging 2–6 weeks, a primary lesion appears, often associated with regional lymphadenopathy. The secondary stage, associated with generalized mucocutaneous lesions and generalized lymphadenopathy, is followed by a latent period of subclinical infection lasting years or decades.

often symptomatic, presenting with acute collapse. Ventricular tachyarrhythmias are
often associated with underlying heart disease such as cardiomyopathy. Torsades de

congenital long QT syndrome.
