Galactic chemical evolution : Carbon through zinc
We calculate the evolution of heavy-element abundances from C to Zn in the solar neighborhood, adopting our new nucleosynthesis yields. Our yields are calculated for wide ranges of metallicity (Z = 0-Z circle dot) and the ...

Impact of RTS/CTS Handshake on the Optical Packet Switched Local Area Network Performance
A centralized media access control protocol is designed to run optical packet switched traffic in local area networks. The design of the network concept was inspired by the IEEE802.11 wireless LAN protocol, although it has ...
Absorption of the nerve agent VX (O-ethyl-S-[2(di-isopropylamino)ethyl] methyl phosphonothioate) through pig, human and guinea pig skin in vitro
The physico-chemical properties of VX make the skin the most likely route of absorption into the human body. The development of effective medical countermeasures against such percutaneous threat agents relies on the use ...
In 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine-treated primates, the selective 5-hydroxytryptamine 1a agonist (R)-(+)-8-OHDPAT inhibits levodopa-induced dyskinesia but only with\increased motor disability
5-Hydroxytryptamine 1a (5-HT1a) receptor agonists, such as sarizotan and tandospirone, are reported to reduce levodopainduced dyskinesia in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated macaques and in ...
Microquasars : What do radio and X-ray observations tell us?
Microquasars, or X-ray binaries exhibiting radio jets, have been observed extensively at all wavelengths for the past decade or so. Primarily, they have been observed in the X-ray regimes and the radio. In this paper we ...
A Future for Presentism
Presentism, the view that only the present exists, was a much-neglected position in the philosophy of time for a number of years. Recently, however, it has been enjoying a renaissance among philosophers. A Future for ...
Accounting for reform : Funding and transformation in the four nation's hospital services
The NHS Plan revealed New Labour's objective to increase funding in the four nation's hospital services in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Although each country has installed its own institutional arrangements, ...
The BBC, the State and Cold War Culture : The Case of Television’s The War Game (1965)
The Cold War was as much a propaganda conflict as one fought between soldiers and politicians. The BBC, as a broadcaster of news and entertainment in large parts of the world, stood at the very centre of this battle. Indeed, ...
Psychosocial interventions for people with moderate to severe dementia : A systematic review
