The paper shows the net effect of the use of media on public involvement, when controlling for age, gender and education. It indicates that television is effectively a deterrent of public involvement, but not at the level generally imagined by social scientist. To the reverse, reading a newspaer is still a good indicator of public involvement. Internet proves to be more ambiguous [less ▲]

In many cases, the numerical computation of mechanical problem with Finite Element Method has to transfer some information between two different meshes. For example, if a remeshing is needed or if several meshes are used (e.g. one for a thermal problem and another one for a mechanical problem). In spite of the research on the Transfer Methods, none of them has been so far clearly established as the best. Each method has advantages and disadvantages. Many problems can happen during the field transfer, like the minimization of the numerical diffusion, the value of the field on the boundaries, etc. This paper compares on the one hand the performances of the Field Transfer Method by classical interpolation with on the other hand one using Mortar Elements. The comparison of the two methods is based on two indicators: the numerical diffusion and the evaluation of the field on the boundaries. In this paper, only the continuous fields are considered.

This article is a review on the role of stress echocardiography in valvular heart diseases, describing what the validated indications are, how to perform the test and the utility of performing this examination. Most valve diseases are characteristically dynamic and this dynamic component is best appreciated by exercise Doppler echocardiography. Dobutamine stress echocardiography is also useful in patients with severe aortic stenosis and left ventricular dysfunction. The main advantage of stress echocardiography is to concomitantly allow the evaluation of symptoms, exercise capacity and the hemodynamic consequences of valve diseases, especially in patients with severe valve diseases who deny symptoms or present equivocal symptoms. It also provides important prognostic information and may help to optimize surgical timing in difficult cases. Whether these data should be integrated in the management of patients needs further validation. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Coagulopathies detected in horses with gastrointestinal problems seem to be associated with poor outcome. Plasma D-Dimer concentration is a sensitive test for assessing coagulopathies. HYPOTHESIS: Plasma D-Dimer concentration tested on admission is related to diagnosis and outcome in horses with colic. ANIMALS: Four hundred and ninety three horses referred for evaluation of abdominal pain. METHODS: Prospective observational clinical study. Horses were grouped according to diagnosis (medical and surgical intestinal obstructions, ischemic disorders with and without intestinal resection, enteritis, peritonitis), outcome (survivors, nonsurvivors), and number of coagulopathies (normal profile, 1 or 2 coagulopathies, subclinical disseminated intravascular coagulation [DIC]). Blood samples were collected on admission and plasma D-Dimer concentration, clotting times (PT and aPTT), and antithrombin activity were determined. Positive likelihood ratios (LR+) were calculated for evaluation of D-Dimer cut-off values, which were later tested in a logistic regression model. RESULTS: Horses with enteritis or peritonitis had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations and more severe coagulopathies on admission than horses with other diagnoses. Nonsurvivors also had significantly (P<.001) higher plasma D-Dimer concentrations at presentation than did survivors, and those horses with subclinical DIC on presentation had an odds ratio (OR) 8.6 (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.3-22.5, P<.001) for nonsurvival. Finally, D-Dimer concentrations>4,000 ng/mL had a LR+ of 5.9 and an OR 8.8 (95% CI, 4.5-17.1, P<.001) for nonsurvival. CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: Plasma D-Dimer concentration measured on admission can be used to facilitate diagnosis and outcome prediction in horses with colic. A potential cut-off value for nonsurvival was found at approximately 4,000 ng/mL. [less ▲]

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: Acid-base disturbances are traditionally assessed using the Henderson-Hasselbach equation. The simplified strong ion approach describes more accurately the complex acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities present in endurance horses. OBJECTIVE: To describe acid-base and electrolytes changes in fit horses competing in a FEI*** 120 km endurance race and to compare the traditional vs. strong ion approaches. METHODS: Thirty horses were initially enrolled in the study. Venous blood samples were obtained before the race (n = 25), at the second (n = 29; 65.4 km) and third vet-gates (n = 23, 97.4 km) and upon race completion (n = 17). Blood gas analysis was performed to determine pH, PCO(2), PO(2), Na(+), K(+) and iCa(++), and calculate HCO(3)(-), base excess and tCO(2). Packed cell volume and total protein, globulin, albumin, lactate, phosphate, glucose and creatinine concentrations, as well as muscle enzymes activities, were also determined. Calculated variables included strong ion difference (SIDm), strong ion gap (SIG) and nonvolatile buffer concentration (A(tot)). A longitudinal linear model using the general estimating equation methodology was used for statistical analysis. RESULTS: Mild but significant increases in PCO(2), SIDm, lactate, plasma protein, globulins and A(tot), as well as a decrease in potassium concentrations were observed from the second vet-gate to race finish when compared to prerace values (P < 0.05). Using the strong ion approach, 67% samples showed acid-base disturbances vs. 70% when using the traditional method, but their interpretations only matched in 24% of measurements. CONCLUSIONS: A complex acid-base imbalance characterised by a mild strong ion alkalosis (hypochloraemia attenuated by hyperlactataemia), nonvolatile buffer acidosis and compensatory mild respiratory acidosis were present in most horses, although pH did not significantly change during a 120 km endurance race. The strong ion approach to interpretation of acid-base balance should be favoured over the traditional approach in endurance horses, given the frequent and complex alterations in PCO(2), SIDm and A(tot) during a race.

A model limited to motivation construct to explain the way from setting a vocational goal to its achievement cannot claim to give an account of how to overcome regulatory problems during goal striving. A model linking volition to motivation is needed. In particular, implementation intentions have been proved to be effective in helping the initiation of goal striving, shielding goal pursuit from unwelcome influences, and disengagement from not successful courses of action. It is proposed to extend the application of this volitional cognitive tool to career counselling. [less ▲]

Tertiary models are proposed in order to predict the growth of Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella spp. in pork minced meat packaged under stretch film. The models have been calculated from challenge-tests at 8°C (L. monocytogenes) and 12°C (Salmonella), the meat being artificially contaminated at 2 log cfu pathogen/g. In a second step, they have been validated at 5, 8 and 10°C for L. monocytogenes (r² : 0.94, 0.98 and 0.95) and 8, 10 and 12°C for Salmonella (r³ : 0.80, 0.92 and 0.98). [less ▲]

Flip buckets are common hydraulic structures aiming at deflecting high velocity flows to a free jet trajectory. Systematic experimental tests have been performed to assess the influence on energy dissipation and the plunge pool geometry of varied repartitions of splitters along the flip bucket width. In particular, it is shown that some configurations can create more erosion than a continuous channel without flip bucket. [less ▲]
