(9) The authors used a linear multivariate regression to evaluate the effects of distance from the highway, age and sex of the child, and housing condition.
(10) Tests in which the size of the landmark was altered from that used in training suggest that distance is not learned solely in terms of the apparent size of the landmark as seen from the goal.
(11) The difference in Brazil will be the huge distances involved, with the crazy decision not to host the group stages in geographical clusters leading to logistical and planning nightmares.
(12) Long-distanced urethrocystopexy which permits to avoid an unwanted increase of outflow resistance with following retention of urine should be preferred.
(13) After using the OK method to obtain a distance curve for height, we introduce a new method (VADK) to derive velocity and acceleration curves from the fitted distance curve.
(14) Shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt said people would see through her attempts to distance herself from Gove.
(15) Transplanted cells divided in vivo and progressively migrated into the host brain from the site of implantation up to distances of about 1 mm.
(16) Discrimination was possible among these four groups on the basis of the Mahalanobis' generalized distance.
(17) Extrapolating animal data to the neonates, we found the thoracic segment length recommended (the average of 29% of body length and electrode distance) to be accurate.
(18) The arrest of the Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent Jason Rezaian and his journalist wife, Yeganeh Salehi, as well as a photographer and her partner, is a brutal reminder of the distance between President Hassan Rouhani’s reforming promises and his willingness to act.
(19) The duration of electrophoresis was based on the migration of a marker dye for a predetermined distance.
(20) Near acuity with distance correction was J2 or more in 93.1% of the bifocals and in 17.4% of the monofocals (without correction: 79.3% and 41.4%, respectively).
(imp. & p. p.) of Illustrate
(1) By presenting the case history of a man who successively developed facial and trigeminal neural dysfunction after Mohs chemosurgery of a PCSCC, this paper documents histologically the occurrence of such neural invasion, and illustrates the utility of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance scanning in patient management.
(2) In contrast, resting cells of strain CHA750 produced five times less IAA in a buffer (pH 6.0) containing 1 mM-L-tryptophan than did resting cells of the wild-type, illustrating the major contribution of TSO to IAA synthesis under these conditions.
(3) In this paper, we show representative experiments illustrating some characteristics of the procedure which may have wide application in clinical microbiology.
(4) A complex linkage between the cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix is illustrated both in the cord forming Sertoli and granulosa cells, and in the adjacent mesenchymal cells.
(5) The following case report illustrates such a case as well as its successful treatment using the BICEPS model.
(6) The most important causal factor, well illustrated by pressure studies, was the presence of a dynamic or static deformity leading to local areas of peak pressure on insensitive skin.
(7) Some numerical evaluations are presented for the normal and exponential distributions of gene effects, illustrating the effects of the number of alleles and of the variation in allelic frequencies.
(8) Examples illustrate these elements as they emerge in group psychotherapy.
(9) Physicochemical characterization of the monomeric, diacetylenic phospholipids illustrates the similarities to naturally occurring lipids, similarities that are confirmed by the capacity to enrich the membranes of A. laidlawii to the level of 90% diacetylenic lipid.
(10) A theory of action is presented which illustrates that certain forms of action are ones from which learning is not possible, but when the form of action is experiential or creative, then learning from it follows--as a result of both monitoring and reflecting.
(11) Two illustrative cases are presented to demonstrate such features.
(12) The information from the literature and the data from the authors' clinical experience have been used to illustrate important points in the discussion.
(13) These results illustrate that NGF can promote either growth or differentiation of PC12 cells, and that myc or E1A alter the phenotypic responses to growth factors and hormones.
(14) The record includes postoperative drawings of the intraoperative field by Dr. Cushing, a sketch by Dr. McKenzie illustrating the postoperative sensory examination, and pre- and postoperative photographs of the patient.
(15) Analysis of this mutant illustrates that indirect flight muscles and jump muscles utilize different mechanisms for alternative RNA splicing.
(16) Illustration by Andrzej Krause Photograph: Guardian The Foreign Office attributed the forgotten boxes to "an earlier misunderstanding about contents" and stated that there needed to be an "improvement in archive management".
(17) Although ET1 and ET2 binding sites were found in rat lung membranes, a selective ET1 receptor antagonist, BQ-123 (10 microM), did not displace [125I]-endothelin-1 ([125I]ET-1) from ET2 sites, illustrating the selectivity of the angatonist for ET1 receptors.
(18) The disorder illustrates the problem of variable expressivity of a trait which makes it difficult to predict the risk of having an affected child when only one feature of a syndrome is present in a relative of a fully affected patient.
(19) These problems are illustrated by a clinical vignette, and alternative approaches are explored.
(20) This case illustrates that lateral pontine and extrapontine myelinolysis can be associated with hypernatremia and hyperosmolality.
