recruitment. The 1996 year-class was the strongest for over a decade but, at the present high exploitation rate of young cod, few individuals have survived to reach sexual maturity. The combination of this exploitation with the recent changes in North Sea temperature, a low spawning-stock biomass and a stock dominated by young immature individuals, means that fishery managers must take precautionary measures 6 . In order to give the mature stock a chance to rebuild, fishing mortality rates need

2009 Proceedings of the 2nd ACM workshop on Assurable and usable security configuration - SafeConfig '09  
In this paper an adaptive solution to secure the authentication process of cellular phones has been proposed. Gait and location tracks of the owner are used as the metrics for authentication. The cellular phone is envisioned to become as adaptive as a pet animal of the owner. The cellular phone learns various intrinsic attributes of the owner like his voice, face, hand and fingerprint geometry and interesting patterns in the owner's daily life and remembers those to continually check against

Only when the cellular phone recognizes significant anomaly in a lower level, it goes one level up in the security hierarchy. The iPhone's accelerometer and A-GPS module have been utilized to record gait and location signatures. A fast and memory efficient variation of Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) algorithm called FastDTW has been used to compute the similarity score between gait samples.

Posterior cruciate ligament tears: functional and postoperative rehabilitation

Casey M. Pierce, Luke O'Brien, Laurie Wohlt Griffin, Robert F. LaPrade
2012 Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy  
Purpose Historically, the results of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstructions are not as favourable as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions, and it is well recognized that nonoperative treatment and postoperative rehabilitation for PCL injuries must be altered compared to those for ACL injuries. The purpose of this article was to review current peer-reviewed PCL rehabilitation programmes and to recommend a nonoperative and postoperative programme based on basic science and published outcomes studies.

Abstract The relationship between fire behaviour and ambient wind flow is often presumed, but seldom measured. General understanding of observed fire behaviour suggests an increase in fire intensity associated with increased wind speed (Van Wagner 1987 , Rothermel 1991 , Finny et al. 2006 , Forthofer 2007 . Fire behaviour characteristics (such as temperature, radiant and total heat flux, 2-and 3-dimensional velocities, and air flow) are extremely difficult to measure in-situ (Jimenez et al. 2007) . Studies base on these phenomena often correlate empirical data either from observed wildland fire or laboratory experiments, but few data sets exist that capture ambient wind flow simultaneously with corresponding in-situ fire behaviour measurements. This paper reports on the corresponding fire behaviour and wind field relationship on six field study plots that were instrumented with several fire behaviour packages (Butler el al. 2004), and a network of wind anemometer towers deployed around the perimeter of each plot. The study plots were part of the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) 2012 field campaign, with the objectives aimed at developing synergies between fuels, fuel consumption, fire behaviour, smoke management, and fire effects measurements for fire model development and evaluation.

The Influence of Hospital Site on Emergency Physician Press Ganey Scores

Dietrich Jehle, Brian Doherty, Lexus Dickson, Melville C O'Brien, Casey Wilson, Scott Gutovitz
2021 HCA Healthcare Journal of Medicine  
The use of physician satisfaction scores to evaluate emergency medicine physicians' performance and compensation is controversial. Prior studies have shown that the clinical environment may influence scores. This study compared satisfaction scores for the same physician at different emergency departments (ED). Differences in their individual score may indicate the ED environment could be as important as the physician's interaction. Methods Press Ganey satisfaction scores were obtained for

Included physicians worked at all 3 facilities and had at least 6 patient satisfaction surveys at each site. The Press Ganey scale ranges from 1-5, with 1 as "very poor" and 5 as "very good". Using top-box methodology, the total physician score was generated from the average of 4 questions: courtesy, keeping patients informed, patient comfort and listening. We utilized descriptive statistics to compare scores for all physicians at each of the 3 sites. In addition, each physician's top box scores were averaged by site for analysis (two-way ANOVA) to determine if individual physician scores varied in different EDs.

Carbohydrate Syntrophy enhances the establishment of Bifidobacterium breve UCC2003 in the neonatal gut

Mary O'Connell Motherway, Frances O'Brien, Tara O'Driscoll, Patrick G. Casey, Fergus Shanahan, Douwe van Sinderen
2018 Scientific Reports  
The non-digestible oligosaccharide fraction of maternal milk represents an important of carbohydrate and energy source for saccharolytic bifidobacteria in the gastrointestinal tract during early life. However, not all neonatal bifidobacteria isolates can directly metabolise the complex sialylated, fucosylated, sulphated and/or N-acetylglucosamine-containing oligosaccharide structures present in mothers milk. For some bifidobacterial strains, efficient carbohydrate syntrophy or crossfeeding is

In this study, we have adopted advanced functional genomic approaches to create single and double in-frame deletions of the N-acetyl glucosamine 6-phosphate deacetylase encoding genes, nagA1 and nagA2, of B. breve UCC2003. In vitro phenotypic analysis followed by in vivo studies on co-colonisation, mother to infant transmission, and evaluation of the relative co-establishment of B. bifidum and B. breve UCC2003 or UCC2003ΔnagA1ΔnagA2 in dam-reared neonatal mice demonstrates the importance of crossfeeding on sialic acid, fucose and N-acetylglucosamine-containing oligosaccharides for the establishment of B. breve UCC2003 in the neonatal gut. Furthermore, transcriptomic analysis of in vivo gene expression shows upregulation of genes associated with the utilisation of lactose, sialic acid, GlcNAc-6-S and fucose in B. breve UCC2003, while for UCC2003ΔnagA1ΔnagA2 only genes for lactose metabolism were upregulated. Bifidobacteria are among the earliest and most abundant bacterial colonisers of the neonatal gut where their presence is associated with a myriad of benefits to the host intestinal, metabolic and immune health 1 . While the genus Bifidobacterium comprises more than 50 species/subspecies, the dominant infant associated species include Bifidobacterium longum subsp. longum, Bifidobacterium longum subsp infantis, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium breve, Bifidobacterium pseudocatenulatum, Bifidobacterium. catenulatum, Bifidobacterium kashiwanohense, and Bifidobacterium adolescentis 2,3 . The dominance of bifidobacteria in breastfed infants has been attributed to their ability to utilise human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs). In particular, strains of B. longum subsp. infantis and B. bifidum have been studied extensively for their ability to utilise host derived carbohydrates and have been found to harbour dedicated, yet distinct, metabolic capabilities for the utilisation of HMOs 4,5 while more recently specific strains of B. longum subsp. longum, B. pseudocatenulatum and B. kashiwanohense have been investigated for their ability to utilise fucosyllactose, the dominant oligosaccharide in human milk 6, 7 . Intriguingly, the ability to utilise HMOs would seem to be a variable trait among infant-derived strains of B. breve, with some strains exhibiting good growth on purified HMOs under in vitro conditions, while other B. breve strains exhibit no appreciable growth 2 . The presence and isolation of B. breve strains that do not directly metabolise HMOs would suggest that these strains likely adopt carbohydrate syntrophy to allow their establishment in the infant gut. We hypothesise that B. breve, and perhaps other Bifidobacterium sp, can exploit the extracellular glycosyl-hydrolase activity of other (bifido)bacterial members of the infant gut microbiome as a source of fermentable carbohydrates to support growth in the intestine.
