In this study, the performance of IMERG 05B is assessed at the hourly and daily scales against dense rain gauge measurements in mainland China from May to September, 2015. Furthermore, IMERG Version 04A (IMERG 04A) is introduced as a comparison of IMERG 05B to test whether it can provide better precipitation estimates. At hourly scale, IMERG 05B is weakly related to the rain gauge measurements (coefficients of determination (R2)

Publication date: Available online 17 January 2019Source: Sensing and Bio-Sensing ResearchAuthor(s): Junping TianAbstractIn this paper, a label-free aptamer-based colorimetric assay was developed by incorporating catalytic Au nanoparticles/Graphene (Au NPs/Gr) nanohybrids. As an efficient peroxidase mimic, Au NPs/Gr can oxidize ABTS1 in the presence of H2O2, generating visible color change that can be recorded by a simple UV–vis spectrophotometer. The ssDNA aptamer can absorb on Au NPs/Gr interface through non-covalent interaction, thereby reducing the catalytic activity of Au NPs/Gr. In the presence of target molecu...

WigboldusAbstractSource characteristics are a key determinant of preferences and choice in the interpersonal influence process. Extant literature documents the positive impact of similarity between oneself and an opinion provider on advice taking, but much less is known about how dissimilarity affects choice. While earlier research assumed that people ignore or discount the opinions of dissimilar others, we argue that dissimilarity can lead to prefer...

Early studies indicated that the initial spread of tuberculosis coincided with the development of wet-rice agriculture. It has been proposed that the adaptation to agriculture cha...
California has finalized hundreds of pages of rules governing the nation's largest legal pot market, but the dense regulations are unlikely to settle long-running disputes over testing and home deliveries
Conclusions: In our study of patients with isolated elevations in amylase and/or lipase without acute pancreatitis who underwent EUS, approximately 50% had a pancreatobiliary finding, most commonly chronic pancreatitis or biliary sludge. PMID: 30646674 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
