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 ...
Emergency: Implementing an Ambulance Despatch System

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 ...
Accounting for healthcare : Reform and outcomes
Exploitation of immunofluorescence for the quantification and characterization of small numbers of Pasteuria endospores
The Pasteuria group of endospore-forming bacteria has been studied as a biocontrol agent of plant-parasitic nematodes. Techniques have been developed for its detection and quantification in soil samples, and these mainly ...
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 ...
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 ...
Delivering patient choice in English acute hospital trusts
The role of the patient within the NHS has changed from supplicant to consumer to active participant. A demand-side patient-led approach is combining quasi-consumerism and participative democracy to inform and facilitate ...
