AbstractThe inorganic –organic hybrid photoresponsive wood was fabricated by incorporating the phosphomolybdic acid (PMA)/polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) composites into the multi-scale hierarchical structure of wood using a simple pressure impregnation method. The as-prepared PMA-/PVP-coated wood (PPW) can change their co lors in response to visible light. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy demonstrated that the PMA/PVP composites were coated on the wood surfaces successfully and the wood structures were still clearly visible. The atomic force microscopy images conf...

AbstractFour groups of low transformation temperature (LTT) deposited metals with different Ni contents were prepared, and their microstructures were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and electron backscattered diffraction techniques. The relationship between the microstructures of the mixed martensite –retained austenite (RA) phases and their impact toughness were investigated; it was found that the impact toughness of the LTT deposited metals increased with increasing volume fraction of RA. In particular, its magnitude was higher for the specimens co...

If 2.6 billion people were suffering from an illness, you’d think we’d all be more familiar with it. That figure represents 33.7% of the population of the world, after all. It also represents the share of that population that will at some point experience an anxiety disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health. For those billions, the experience of clinical anxiety can range from a persistent fretfulness, distractedness and a sort of whole-body clenching, to the paralytic crisis of a full-blown panic attack. All of it feels lousy; all of it is a state you race to escape — which typically only ...

Conclusion: The central message of this study is that when acute onset symptoms are present in a relatively old patient with vascular risk factors, stroke should be considered as the possible aetiology until proven otherwise, and the appropriate steps should be taken to avoid a delay in the treatment and to improve outcomes.Case Rep Neurol 2017;9:277 –283

I recently came across the unintentionally funny op-ed piece by John Rosemond, a family psychologist known for his controversial views on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and other childhood behavioral issues. In the piece, he laments how he was dis-invited from a recent speaking invitation because of his views. In short, he says, “Those facts include that ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), and bipolar disorder of childhood are not realities; rather, they are constructs.” Of course they are constructs. But so is nearly everything we’ve created to navigate human existence. Rosemond ...

An elderly lady was diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism after being admitted to hospital with pyelonephritis and constipation. A sestamibi parathyroid scan demonstrated increased uptake in the upper mediastinum, suggesting an ectopic mediastinal parathyroid adenoma. The 4-mm adenoma was successfully removed through a mini-sternotomy incision using a gamma probe to identify the gland from the surrounding tissue. The patient made an uneventful recovery.Case Rep Oncol 2017;10:1105 –1111

Authors: Bojanich MV, Basualdo JA, Giusiano G Abstract The degree of antagonism exercised by fungi on geohelminth development varies according to the morphological alterations caused by different fungal species. Saprophytic fungi may exert ovicidal or ovistatic effects. The aim of this study was to apply scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to observe the action of two soil saprophytic species of Chrysosporium (C. indicum and C. keratinophylum) on Toxocara canis eggs. The fungal strains to be tested were incubated for 28 days at 28°C in 2% water agar with a suspension of unembryonated T. canis eggs. A suspension ...
