As well as being amazing marvels of nature, the gelatinous sea creatures are harbingers of the most serious issues that face us and this should be a call to armsLooking back, I see that jellyfish came to me when the haze of sleepless nights brought on by kids ’ cries and the frenzy of cramming a working day into the scant hours of pre-school began to lift. And, even though I still looked good on Facebook, when I slowed down long enough to think, I felt lost and unfulfilled. That something inside had been waiting for the opportunity to climb out and loo k for more than flapjacks and yogurt wasn’t so surprising. ...

Conclusions: MR scans should be used in combination with endoluminal mucosal assessment (and digital rectal examination) to determine response following Papillon radiotherapy. This is the first paper to describe both the endoscopic and imaging findings following Papillon radiotherapy. PMID: 29789768 [PubMed]

Publication date: 13 June 2018 Source:Materials Science and Engineering: A, Volume 728 Author(s): Hong-wei Zhu, Kai Xu, Sen Qin, Fu-ren Xiao, Bo Liao Heat treatment is an important mean to obtain excellent properties of all kinds of metal materials. The microstructure of 1045 steel modified with (NbTi)C nanoparticles was studied by means of optical, scanning electron, and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The effects of (NbTi)C nanoparticles in as-cast, normalized, as well as quenched and tempered (Q&T) steel were determined. The metallographic results showed that the normalized steel had a finer grain size...

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Polymer Testing, Volume 69 Author(s): Karsten Leucker, Janosch Amtmann, Dirk W. Schubert It has been demonstrated that none of the existing testing methods for abrasion resistance is suitable for the testing of low basis weight (areal weight) polypropylene nonwovens in the range of 15 g/m2 to 25 g/m2. Thus, a novel test method has been developed in which the samples are scanned after certain intervals of abrasion cycles on the Martindale abrasion tester using a standard flatbed scanner. From the greyscale images generated, the total pill area and the number of pills can be determin...

Publication date: August 2018 Source:Polymer Testing, Volume 69 Author(s): Ming Cao, Junjie Shu, Peng Chen, Ru Xia, Bin Yang, Jibin Miao, Jiasheng Qian The co-continuous blends of chlorinated polyethylene rubber (CM) and ethylene propylene diene rubber (EPDM) were prepared. Boron nitride nanosheets (BNNSs) were filled into the blends and orientated by shearing on a two-roll mill. The microstructure of CM/EPDM blends and the localization of BNNSs were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The effects of orientation and content of BNNSs based fillers on thermal conductivity and mechanical properties of the composi...

Publication date: Available online 26 May 2018 Source:Protist Author(s): William Bourland, Johana Rotterová, Xiaotian Luo, Ivan Čepička Class Armophorea Lynn, 2004 includes two orders of mainly free-living anaerobic ciliates, Armophorida Jankowski, 1980 and Metopida Jankowski, 1980 and the exclusively endosymbiotic Clevelandellida. Kahl described the majority of free-living metopid species early in the 20th century. Excepting Jankowski in the 1960's, little further interest was shown in this group. Metopus turbo Dragesco and Dragesco-Kernéis, 1986, from a West African pond, was more recently described. Alt...

Canedo The effect of the type of filler and concentration on the degradation rate of compounds based on a blend of poly (β-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) and poly (butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT) were studied using a fast and simple procedure of monitoring polymer degradation under processing conditions using torque rheometry. It was found that both the presence and level of two types of filler, taken from two different layers of t...

Publication date: 25 September 2018 Source:Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Volume 762 Author(s): Wei Jiang, Lida Shen, Mingbo Qiu, Xin Wang, Mingzhi Fan, Zongjun Tian To improve the effective working life of sintered NdFeB magnets, Ni-SiC composite coatings were prepared on NdFeB by magnetic field-enhanced jet electrodeposition. It was found that the influence of the magnetic field on the ions in the electrolyte improved the edged effect that is most likely to occur in traditional jet electrodeposition, accelerated the mass transfer of ions, and improved the coating morphology, as compared with Ni-SiC prepared by traditi...

Publication date: 25 September 2018 Source:Journal of Alloys and Compounds, Volume 762 Author(s): Miao-Miao Deng, Zhong-Feng Tang, Yu Shao, Xiao-Dong He, Zhao-Yin Wen, Chun-Hua Chen A Co3O4 coating is formed on the surface of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4 particles via an ethanol mediated precipitation method. The existence of the uniform Co3O4 coating is clearly observed by scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. The results of electrochemical performance testing prove that the Co3O4 coating can greatly enhance the cycling stability and rate performance of LiNi0.5Mn1.5O4. The optimal sample 5% Co3O4-coated Li...
