Permo–Triassic granitoids of the Xing’an–Mongolia segment of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt, Northeast China: age, composition, and tectonic implications

Qiu-Ming Pei, Shou-Ting Zhang, Ken-Ichiro Hayashi, Hua-Wen Cao, Dong Li, Li Tang, Xin-Kai Hu, Hao-Xing Li & Da-Ren Fang
The Xing’an–Mongolia orogenic belt is located in the southeastern segment of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt. Its tectonic evolution, especially during the Late Palaeozoic to Early Mesozoic, remains controversial. Here, we report new zircon U–Pb dates, whole-rock geochemistry, and Hf isotopes of representative samples from four plutons in the Linxi area of Northeast China to provide new constraints on this issue. Zircon U–Pb dating indicates that the intrusions were emplaced in two stages: (1) Late...

After Fame: A Micro-Ethnography of Popular Late Style

Willemien Froneman
After Fame is an ethnographic account of aging and musical creativity in the everyday life of the then 90-year-old South African accordionist Nico Carstens. It consists of three parts: (1) a theoretical and methodological framing, refiguring the Western elite concept of “late style” for the study of popular music; (2) an animated and narrated digital essay, accessible online; and (3) a version adapted here for print. Based on personal conversations, a micro-geography of Carstens’s living...

Which inhaled corticosteroid and long-acting β-agonist combination is better in patients with moderate-to-severe asthma, a dry powder inhaler or a pressurized metered-dose inhaler?

Masato Muraki, Kyuya Gose, Soichiro Hanada, Hirochiyo Sawaguchi & Yuji Tohda
Two main types of devices are used to facilitate the administration of inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) and long-acting β-agonist (LABA) in combination, dry powder inhalers (DPIs) and pressurized metered-dose inhalers (pMDIs). There are few reports comparing the effects of the two devices, and it is unknown which should be recommended for asthma patients with given sets of characteristics. In the current study, the beneficial effects and side effects associated with DPIs and pMDIs were compared, and...

Quantitative sensory testing for assessment of somatosensory function in human oral mucosa: a review

Pin Zhou, Yaming Chen, Jinglu Zhang, Kelun Wang & Peter Svensson
Objective: This narrative review provides an overview of the quantitative sensory testing (QST) to assess somatosensory function in human oral mucosa. Material and methods: A literature search was conducted in the PubMed database to identify studies in vivo on human oral mucosa using QST methods. A list of 149 articles was obtained and screened. A total of 36 relevant articles remained and were read in full text. Manual search of the reference lists identified eight...

On the Y-DNA of the Lost Tribes of Israel

John Smith
Biblical chronology has since the advent of the scientific revolution generally, and particularly since the publication of On the Origin of Species in November 1859, fallen into disrepute. This is in no small part because the bible tells of a human race that is much younger than evolutionary chronology requires. It is a matter of great irony therefore that in November 1859 a work was published on the seemingly unrelated topic of the prime numbers...

Subjective assessment of the effects of an herbal supplement containing lavender essential oil on sleep quality: A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study

Nicole Stevens, Jeff Dorsett, Alex DaBell, Dennis L. Eggett, Xuesheng Han & Tory L. Parker
Sleep disorders are associated with an elevated risk of developing various diseases. Herbal supplementation has been shown to alleviate sleep disorders such as insomnia. Here, the effect on sleep quality of an herbal supplement was evaluated subjectively. The supplement primarily contained lavender essential oil, as well as L-theanine and extracts of lemon balm, passion flower, and chamomile. Fifty-one healthy adults with self-reported symptoms of insomnia, divided into placebo and treatment groups, completed a 6-week crossover...

Genomic history of the seventh pandemic of cholera in Africa

Mukhopadhyay, Raymond Bercion, Francisco Luquero, Antoinette Ngandjio, Mireille Dosso, Elena Monakhova, Benoit Garin, Christiane Bouchier, Carlo Pazzani, Ankur Mutreja, Roland Grunow, Fati Sidikou, Laurence Bonte, Sébastien Breurec, Maria Damian, Betty Njanpop-Lafourcade … & Nicholas R. Thomson
Africa was hit by cholera in 1970 and has since become the continent most affected by the seventh pandemic. We use high-resolution population-level genomic data to explain how cholera has spread consistently, and potentially predictably, across Africa between 1970 and 2014. We show that cholera was introduced at least 11 times, at two preferential foci — one in West Africa and the other in Eastern/Southern Africa — causing widespread epidemics lasting from a few years...

Supplementary Material for: Citation Classics in Stroke: The Top-100 Cited Articles on Hemorrhagic Stroke

Y. Kim, D.Y. Yoon, J.-E. Kim, K.M. Park, J.-H. Lee, H.-K. Song & J.S. Bae
Background: Stroke is a disastrous disease and a major health burden worldwide, especially in Korea. Hemorrhagic stroke (HS) accounts for approximately 20% of all the types of strokes. It is important to be able to evaluate stroke diagnoses and evolving treatments. Objective: We aimed to identify the top-100 cited articles and assess a paradigm shift that occurred in the field of HS. Methods: We searched all articles that had been cited more than 100 times...
