(3) Chris Pavlou, former vice chairman of Laiki, told Channel 4 news that Anastasiades was given little option by the troika but to accept the draconian terms, which force savers to take a hit for the first time in the fifth bailout of a eurozone country.
(4) By using these larger catheters, the surgeon will not lose the option of using isosmotic preparations.
(5) The dumplings could also be served pan-fried in browned butter and tossed with a bitter leaf salad and fresh sheep's cheese for a lighter, but equally delicious option.
(6) Proper treatment of postoperative atelectasis requires adequate patient assessment and knowledge of the therapeutic options.
(7) We know that from the rapid take up of crowd funded renewables investors are actively looking for a more secure option.
(8) Steps in the decision-making process, as well as options to be considered, are detailed.
(9) RF ablation appears to be a safe and effective therapeutic option for drug-resistant ectopic atrial tachycardia and may be the preferred first-line therapy for those patients with depressed ventricular function.
(10) Endoscopic coagulation is a useful adjunct in the treatment of this condition, and is safe, effective, and leaves other options open.
(11) The main benefit of the newer drugs is that they offer new options for the treatment of patients who cannot tolerate side effects of the traditional drugs or have responded unsatisfactorily to them.
(12) Available evidence suggests that the medical outcome between these two options is similar; this study was designed to investigate selected psychosocial outcomes.
(13) The literature is reviewed with respect to treatment options and prognostic factors.
(14) The protein variation potentially includes N-terminal differences coded for by transcript-specific 5' exons and internal differences arising from the optional inclusion of a 39 base-pair exon and from the alternative use of two 3' splice sites separated by six base-pairs.
(15) This study investigates neophyte student nurses' attitudes to working with the elderly through placing them in relation to attitudes to other nursing career options and by exploring student nurses' reasons for such attitudes.
(16) Alternative management options, 6 month mortality and costs for the post-myocardial infarction patient were compared.
(17) 'don't know' options) students were able to increase their score significantly and the rank order of the students in class is changed.
(18) Another feature of TWINAN90 is the optional output of a pedigree file which can be read by the quantitative genetics package FISHER.
(19) Procurement has already brought down prices in foster care significantly in recent years, so differences between the costs of placement options may now be marginal.
(20) Operative decompression is in most cases the only therapeutic option.
(n.) One who selects.
(1) Using consumer survey data from the Missouri Managed Health Care Project, we examined characteristics and use experiences of assignees compared with selectors.
(2) The use of this selector creates a possibility of reducing the increase in the synchronizing pulse with respect to the channel pulses and eliminating tuning the transmitter's modulator and receiver's selector to each other.
(3) The optimum threshold values for this selector are as follows: 12 ms in the rate and 14 ms in the duration.
(4) The members of the main feeding categories (Hofmann, Stewart 1972): concentrate selector, roughage eater and intermediate feeder did not differ much in the ultrastructure of the fundic stomach epithelium but showed greater differences with respect to the height and shape of the glandular tubules and the arrangement of the epithelial cell types.
(5) The DNaseI footprint of this protein complex with the enhancer overlapped a sequence, AGGAGGA, found within the binding site for a protein that interacts with the chicken beta globin promoter and enhancer, termed the stage selector element.
(6) These results support the selector gene model of development (Garcia-Bellido, 1975) and emphasize that collaboration between polyclones is important in pattern formation.
(7) But the East Ender will not compete over the one lap in Daegu, while the runner-up – Shana Cox – only qualifies for a British passport from November of this year and so all three British places are up for grabs as the selectors meet to decide who will travel to South Korea this summer.
(8) In Drosophila embryos, anterior-posterior positional identities are set and maintained by the expression boundaries of homeotic selector genes.
(9) Use of the full panel to grade all abstracts was very expensive, but it could be replaced, without unacceptable injustice, by dividing the work randomly among groups of three selectors.
(10) Using the selector method on serial plastic sections, we determine the number of epithelial or interstitial cells per volume (Nv) of total epithelium or interstitium.
(11) So this element is likely to be a target of homeotic genes, which would define the beta 3 tubulin gene as a realisator gene under the control of selector genes.
(12) A monitor useful for checks of the energy selector scale of medical electron accelerators was developed and tested.
(13) Indeed, c-Jun and c-Fos served as selectors of hormone responsiveness: the composite GRE was inactive in the absence of c-Jun, whereas it conferred a positive glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun, and a negative glucocorticoid effect in the presence of c-Jun and relatively high levels of c-Fos.
(14) The noise immunity of the units can be considerably improved by means of the R-wave selector that discriminates signals by rate and duration of the pulse decay (RS-slope).
(15) The homeotic selector gene Deformed (Dfd) is required to specify the identity of head segments during Drosophila development.
(16) Two different selectors are described: a simple one for two different pulse widths and a more complicated one with a counter for any setting of pulse width in the system.
(17) We show that the eve gene contains a homeo box and hence is related structurally to the pair-rule gene fushi tarazu and to homeotic selector genes.
(18) In order to improve synchronization in biotelemetry systems, a relative pulse-width selector was designed.
(19) Binding of selector proteins to regulatory DNA sequences is mediated by an evolutionary conserved protein domain, the homeodomain.
(20) Advantages of the selectors are compact size, reproducibility of size-selection performance based on the high precision of drill manufacture and use, flexibility in design and layout, and manufacturing ease in a machine shop.
