Impact of iron deficiency on exercise capacity and outcome in heart failure with reduced, mid-range and preserved ejection fraction

Pieter Martens, Petra Nijst, Frederik H. Verbrugge, Kevin Smeets, Matthias Dupont & Wilfried Mullens
Background: Little information is available about the prevalence and impact on exercise capacity and outcome of iron deficiency in heart failure with mid-range (HFmrEF) and preserved (HFpEF) ejection fraction in comparison to heart failure with reduced ejection-fraction (HFrEF). Furthermore, no data is available about the progression of ID in patients without baseline anaemia. Methods: We evaluated baseline iron and haemoglobin-status in a single-centre, prospective heart failure database. Baseline functional status, VO2max, echocardiography and clinical-outcome (all-cause...

Pollen morphology of Polygonatae and its systematic significance

Liu Wang, Lei Gu, Chunhai Zhao & Jiaxi Liu
The pollen morphology of 54 species and one variety of seven genera in Polygonatae including Clintonia, Disporopsis, Disporum, Maianthemum, Polygonatum, Smilacina and Streptopus was observed and studied in detail; of these, nine species were reported for the first time. Our results showed that the surface ornamentation of pollen grains of the studied materials could be divided into seven types, namely gemmate, granulate-foveolate, perforate, reticulate, rugulate, rugulate-perforate and verrucate. In line with previous studies, we believe...

Balancing stratigraphic and structural controls on basin inversion.

Simon Oldfield, Douglas A. Paton, Emma K. Bramham, Taija Torvela & Andres Mora
Presented at AAPG ICE 2017, London, UK
Abstract:Orogens often exhibit many aspects of former extensional terranes. Pre-existing strength heterogeneities may promote or inhibit the accumulation of strain, greatly affecting the local expression of features. This challenges our ability to propagate interpretations into areas of limited data constraint.
Using the frontal range of the Eastern Cordillera, Colombia, we discuss the extent of interaction between exposed compressional geometries and the underlying, partially re-activated, extensional terrane.
Depositional patterns, placing greater thickness...

Risk Screen of Freshwater Tropical Ornamental Fishes for the Conterminous United States

Jeffrey E. Hill, Quenton M. Tuckett, Scott Hardin, Larry L. Lawson, Katelyn M. Lawson, Jared L. Ritch & Lauren Partridge
The trade in ornamental fish is increasingly viewed as a major source for the introduction of invasive species into the environment. However, few ornamental fishes are established and widespread in the conterminous United States, and fewer still are thought to cause noticeable environmental impacts. To better evaluate the risk of this pathway, we conducted a risk screen of 34 important freshwater ornamental fish species by using the Fish Invasiveness Screening Kit (FISK) version 2 for...

Genetic screening of SCNN1B and SCNN1G genes in early-onset hypertensive patients helps to identify Liddle syndrome

Kun-Qi Yang, Chao-Xia Lu, Peng Fan, Ying Zhang, Xu Meng, Xue-Qi Dong, Fang Luo, Ya-Xin Liu, Hui-Min Zhang, Hai-Ying Wu, Jun Cai, Xue Zhang & Xian-Liang Zhou
Background: Liddle syndrome is an autosomal dominant form of monogenic hypertension. Phenotypic variability makes it difficult to identify patients with Liddle syndrome, resulting in misdiagnosis and severe complications at early age. Objectives: To identify mutation in SCNN1B and SCNN1G genes in an adolescent with suspicious Liddle syndrome and his family members and to explore the screening target subjects of Liddle syndrome. Methods: Genetic analysis of the C-terminus of SCNN1B and SCNN1G genes was conducted in...

Water conservation & the National Water Policy (2012)

Saurabh Chandra
Earth and every living organism on this planet require water for survival and without water there would be no life. Drinking water should be clean that means it should be free from microorganisms, free from harmful chemical and other pollutants. Consuming unsafe drinking water may lead to several water borne diseases, and other long term and chronic health problems. Water conservation encompasses the policies, strategies and activities to manage fresh water as a sustainable resource...

“Aurea mediocritas”: The concepts of measure, measurement and moderation in Presocratic philosophy

George Papageorgakis
An important moral tradition was formed in ancient Greece, starting from the early 6th century BC and extending approximately to the first half of the 5th century BC. This social morality which values virtue above pleasure (ηδονή) and ordains the observance of measure (μέτρον), namely the morality of prudence (σωφροσύνη), was shaped thanks to the orders of the Oracle of Delphi and the Seven Sages for self-restraint and avoidance of excess, but also thanks to...

Historical origins of the french school of economic warfare

Giuseppe Gagliano
The French school of economic warfare analysis may be considered one of the most prominent on the European continent today, with numerous private and public institutes – including the School of Economic Warfare in Paris – dedicated to spreading awareness of its importance in expanding and improving the practical activities of French businesses. This article proposes a historical analysis of this tradition, focusing on the last three decades of the 20th Century a division into...

Aristotle's concept of the state

Olivera Z. Mijuskovic
In contrast to a little bit utopian standpoint offered by Plato in his teachings about the state or politeia where rulers aren`t “in love with power but in virtue”, Aristotle's teaching on the same subject seems very realistic and pragmatic. In his most important writing in this field called "Politics", Aristotle classified authority in the form of two main parts: the correct authority and moose authority. In this sense, correct forms of government are 1.basileus,...

Marxist ideology and philosophy as interpreted by Raymond Aron

Giuseppe Gagliano
Without posing the objective of providing an exhaustive interpretation of Aron’s thought on Marx and totalitarianism, we intend to identify several key concepts that emerge from an analysis of Aron’s acclaimed work on the role played by Marxist-Leninist ideology in the development of the 20th-century philosophic thought.

Aiding Corruption through Governance Structures in sub-Saharan Africa: What Role for E-Government?

Ojo Patrick
In spite of the fact that sub-Saharan African countries have undergone political transitions and experience new form of governance, the region is still battling with socio–economic challenges. The persistent socio-economic problem is attributable to the governance styles of electoral democracies that are not guided by democratic values and principles of accountability. The perspective in this paper is that the emergence of democratic governments in this region occurred through lopsided process which impacts on their governance...

Techno Legal Support for E-Governance and Implementation Challenges in Ghana

Peter Asare-Nuamah & Darko Emmanuel Agyepong
The Government of Ghana has taken various steps and initiative to provide speedy and quality services to Ghanaians through e-governance but in our legalistic societies, the success of e-governance depends of the availability of legal frameworks and policies. The objective of the study to review and understand the various legal policies and framework that support e-governance in Ghana as well as the challenges of implementing e-governance initiatives. To satisfy the objectives, secondary data were retrieved,...

Conceptual Framework of eService delivery system in Developing Countries with a high level of Instability

Alsaeed Abraheem & Adams Dr. Carl
This study proposes a conceptual framework which captures the main factors (both enablers and barriers) influence and contribute toward a successful implementation of eServices in countries that have unstable status. In such countries, eService is still necessary and governments face extra challenges in their provision, however, academic literature that covers transformational eGov activity in periods of geopolitical instability is uncommon. Our aim is to address this gap in the literature by identifying factors that might...
