2009 Ubiquitous Multimedia Computing  
Sharing digital documents among multiple users on large tabletop is one of the typical application scenarios for tabletop systems. In this paper, we elaborate the guidelines of designing user interface for this application scenario. A set of finger gestures are then defined into the interface which includes single finger operation for selecting, moving and delivering a digital document among multiple users, double finger operation for resizing and rotating a digital document, trajectory

At last, we make a discussion on learnability, usability and naturalness of our interface design for this application scenario.

Microglia are resident immune cells in the central nervous system and central to the innate immune system. Excessive activation of microglia after subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH) contributes greatly to early brain injury, which is responsible for poor outcomes. Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), a steroid hormone enriched in the brain, has recently been found to regulate microglial activation. The purpose of this study was to address the role of DHEA in SAH. We used in vivo models of endovascular

In experimental SAH mice, exogenous DHEA administration increased DHEA levels in the brain and modulated microglial activation. Ameliorated neuronal damage and improved neurological outcomes were also observed in the SAH mice pretreated with DHEA, suggesting neuronal protective effects of DHEA. In cultured microglia, DHEA elevated the mRNA and protein levels of Jumonji d3 (JMJD3, histone 3 demethylase) after haemoglobin exposure, downregulated the H3K27me3 level, and inhibited the transcription of proinflammatory genes. The devastating proinflammatory microglia-mediated effects on primary neurons were also attenuated by DHEA; however, specific inhibition of JMJD3 abolished the protective effects of DHEA. We next verified that DHEA-induced JMJD3 expression, at least in part, through the tropomyosin-related kinase A (TrkA)/Akt signalling pathway. DHEA has a neuroprotective effect after SAH. Moreover, DHEA increases microglial JMJD3 expression to regulate proinflammatory/anti-inflammatory microglial activation after haemoglobin exposure, thereby suppressing inflammation.

Biofortification is a strategy for overcoming human zinc (Zn) deficiency, especially in rural areas of developing countries. Actually, biofortification by foliar Zn application has been demonstrated at small scale, but not at large scale due to the absence of economic analysis. Therefore, here, we conducted the first cost-effectiveness analysis using the method of "disability-adjusted life year" measuring the health burden. We thus quantified the cost of agronomic biofortification of wheat with
more » ... Zn in three major wheat-growing regions of China. Our results show that the current annual health burden due to human Zn deficiency, defined as numbers of disabilityadjusted life years lost, is 0.21 million years for the region under single wheat plantation, 0.79 million years for the region under wheat-maize rotation, and 0.38 million years for the region under wheat-rice rotation. Comparing with traditional wheat diets in these three regions, the consumption of agronomically Zn-biofortified wheat diets could increase the daily Zn intakes of infants and children under 5 years of age. These increased daily Zn intakes consequently reduce the health burden due to human Zn deficiency in these regions by up to 56.6 %.

Objective: The purpose of this study was to assess the impact of psychological/psychoeducational assessment in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc). Methods: A diagnostic interview was undertaken in order to investigate any temporal connection between an adverse life event and the first appearance of SSc. Following this, the rheumatologist's assessment of subsequent changes in the SSc were noted. The psychoeducation we did, as an adjunct to conventional thoracic duct lymphatic drainage

Results: The patients with SSc in the study showed higher percentages of lower education (69.2%) and working class (63.5%), and reported that the most common life event in adults was divorce or separation from spouse, while in adolescent was difficult home conditions. A favourable response was noted in all patients who participated in the study; Remission was achieved in 35, while 17 showed some improvement. Conclusions: We conclude that life events were causally related to the onset of SSc and psychoeducation combinated with conventional TDD led to a remission in the majority of patients.

Highly dispersed granular nano-composite material of CoFe2O4 and MnFe2O4 with an average size of 20 nm is synthesized through thermal decomposition. The soft-hard magnet exchange-spring effect is observed in magnetization measurements at low temperatures, and is found to be strongly affected by the temperature of the reaction and the composition ratio between soft and hard magnetic phases. Magnetization measurements at different temperatures show that at 20 K, the saturation magnetization

A Henkel Plot measurement on our sample shows that for the dispersed composite material of CoFe2O4 and MnFe2O4, the dipole interaction is dominant among magnetic interactions.

Three new Scheffersomyces species associated with insects and rotting wood in China

Ran-Ran Jia, Shi-Long Lv, Chun-Yue Chai, Feng-Li Hui
2020 MycoKeys  
Three species of Scheffersomyces were identified during a diversity study of yeasts. All three are associated with insects and rotting wood in China. Phylogenetic analyses of a genomic dataset combining ITS and nrLSU revealed that these new collections are distinct from known species, thus three new species are introduced i.e. S. jinghongensis, S. paraergatensis, and S. anoplophorae. In our phylogenetic analyses, Scheffersomyces jinghongensis possesses a strong independent lineage and is

Several differences in physiological traits and molecular data indicate that S. jinghongensis, S. paraergatensis, and S. anoplophorae are three newly identified species.

2017 BMC Gastroenterology  
Prophylactic pancreatic stents after endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) can help prevent post-ERCP pancreatitis. However most of the pancreatic stents need to be removed by another ERCP. The aim of this observational study was to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of the modified pancreatic stent system for prevention of post-ERCP pancreatitis. Methods: From November 2013 to November 2015, a total of 230 patients who had prophylactic pancreatic stent placed for

In this case-control design, 150 patients received an ordinary pancreatic stent, and 80 patients received the modified pancreatic stent. The main outcome measures were the difficulty level and complications of pancreatic stent placement and extraction between the two groups. Results: In ordinary group, the average time of pancreatic stent and nasal biliary drainage placement was 3.5 ± 0. 6 min. There were 13 cases of stent proximal migration (8.7%), 20 cases of stent spontaneous abscission (13.3%), 5 cases of acute pancreatitis (3.3%) (2 cases for stent abscission) and 7 cases of hyperamylasemia (4.7%) after ERCP. One hundred thirty patients received extra duodenoscope (86.7%) to remove the stent, and 4 cases had acute pancreatitis and 5 patients had hyperamylasemia after removing the proximal migratory stents. In modified group, the average time of pancreatic stent system placement was 4.9 ± 0.7 min, but there was only one case of stent abscission (1.3%), 2 cases of acute pancreatitis (2.5%) and 3 cases of hyperamylasemia (3.8%). The new pancreatic stents were removed directly under x-ray without complication. Conclusions: The modified pancreatic stent system has the same effect of preventing post-ERCP pancreatitis, lower rate of stents proximal migration and spontaneous abscission, and the advantage of easier removed compared with ordinary pancreatic stent.

2020 MycoKeys  
Spathaspora is an important genus of d-xylose-fermenting yeasts that are poorly studied in China. During recent yeast collections in Yunnan Province in China, 13 isolates of Spathaspora were obtained from rotting wood and all represent undescribed taxa. Based on morphological and phylogenetic analyses (ITS and nuc 28S), five new species are proposed: Spathaspora elongata, Sp. mengyangensis, Sp. jiuxiensis, Sp. parajiuxiensis and Sp. rosae. Our results indicate a high species diversity of
