Oxford Handbook of Nutrition and Dietetics
Fully updated, the Oxford Handbook of Nutrition and Dietetics, second edition is a practical quick-reference guide to the vital and valued subject of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease and the maintenance ...
Ultra steep spectrum radio sources in the Lockman Hole : SERVS identifications and redshift distribution at the faintest radio fluxes
Ultra steep spectrum (USS) radio sources have been successfully used to select powerful radio sources at high redshifts (z greater than or similar to 2). Typically restricted to large-sky surveys and relatively bright radio ...
Neutron measurements for advanced nuclear systems : The n_TOF project at CERN
A few years ago, the neutron time-of-flight facility n_TOF was built at CERN to address some of the urgent needs of high-accuracy nuclear data for Accelerator Driven Systems and other advanced nuclear energy systems, as ...
Imprinting interference fringes in massive optomechanical systems
An interferometric scheme for the creation of momentum superposition states of mechanical oscillators using a quantum mirror kicked by free photons is analyzed. The scheme features ultrafast preparation with immediate ...
Interaction of Fanaroff-Riley class II radio jets with a randomly magnetized intracluster medium
A combination of 3D magnetohydrodynamics and synthetic numerical simulations are presented to follow the evolution of a randomly magnetized plasma that models the intracluster medium, under the isolated effects of powerful, ...
The stellar-activity-rotation relationship and the evolution of stellar dynamos
We present a sample of 824 solar and late-type stars with X-ray luminosities and rotation periods. This is used to study the relationship between rotation and stellar activity and derive a new estimate of the convective ...
Dementia care : Could animal robots benefit residents
When care homes do not allow pets to visit or live in the home, is there a place for robotic pets? Can they confer any of the same benefits to residents as real animals?
The dirty hand in the latex glove.” A study of hand hygiene compliance when gloves are worn.
Background and objective. Wearing of gloves reduces transmission of organisms by healthcare workers’ hands but is not a substitute for hand hygiene. Results of previous studies have varied as to whether hand hygiene is ...
Mechanisms underlying the onset and expression of levodopa-induced dyskinesia and their pharmacological manipulation
A significant proportion of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) receiving dopamine replacement therapy in the form of levodopa develop dyskinesia that becomes a major complicating factor in treatment. Dyskinesia can ...
Valuing the supervision of midwives in higher education
Supervision of midwives provides a framework to support every practising midwife in the UK (Local Supervising Authority Midwifery Officers' National Forum, 2009). This article discusses the importance and uniqueness of ...
