Requirements for observation scenarios to maintain a catalogue of space debris objects in geosynchronous region

Thomas Schildknecht, A. Hinze & H. Fiedler
Optical observations for space debris in the geosynchronous region have been performed for many years. During this time, observation strategies, processing tech- niques and cataloguing approaches were successfully developed. The importance of protecting this orbital region from space debris requires continuous surveying and monitoring in order to support collision avoidance operations. Further observations of the objects, providing information for orbit improvement calculations, are helping to maintain high accuracy ephemeris of the catalogued objects. This paper...

Investors’ Risk Perceptions of Structured Financial Products with Worst-of Payout Characteristics

Martin Wallmeier, Claude Messner & Alexis H. Kunz
We conduct an experiment to investigate how investors assess the risk of Reverse Convertibles that link the payout to the worst performing stock of a pool of underlying assets. Based on theory from psychology, we conjecture that investors’ risk perception can be systematically biased downwards via the strategic selection and composition of the underlying assets. We predict and find that adding relatively safe assets to a risky underlying asset decreases perceived investment risk despite the...

The Use of a Single Budget or Separate Budgets for Planning and Performance Evaluation

Markus Christopher Arnold & Martin Artz
Budgeting has different functions in the firm that are not necessarily congruent with each other but conflict. Specifically, in many firms, budgets are simultaneously set and used for both operative planning and performance evaluation. Although prior literature recommends using different budget levels for different purposes to resolve potential conflicts between these functions, empirical evidence indicates that the majority of firms use a single budget level for planning and performance evaluation. To examine the questions of...

Caplacizumab reduces the frequency of major thromboembolic events, exacerbations, and death in patients with acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura.

Johanna Anna Kremer Hovinga, F Peyvandi, P Knöbl, F Callewaert, H De Winter, K De Beuf, S Cataland, M Scully & R K Zeldin
BACKGROUND Acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (aTTP) is a life-threatening autoimmune thrombotic microangiopathy. In spite of treatment with plasma exchange and immunosuppression, patients remain at risk for thrombotic complications, exacerbations and death. In the Phase II TITAN study, treatment with caplacizumab, an anti-vWF Nanobody(®) , was shown to reduce the time to confirmed platelet count normalization and exacerbations during treatment. OBJECTIVE The clinical benefit of caplacizumab was further investigated in a post-hoc analysis of the incidence...

Decrease of ethyl glucuronide concentrations in hair after exposure to chlorinated swimming pool water.

Susanne Nussbaumer, Marc Luginbühl & Wolfgang Weinmann
The direct alcohol marker ethyl glucuronide (EtG) is widely used for the assessment of alcohol consumption behavior and abstinence monitoring by hair analysis. We investigated the influence of chlorinated swimming pool water on EtG concentrations in hair in comparison to deionized water (Milli-Q) containing no chlorine. EtG concentrations were measured with a validated online-SPE-LC-MS/MS method. EtG positive hair samples were obtained from three regular drinkers and incubated for 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10...

Impact energy of everyday items used for assault

Lea Siegenthaler, Beat P. Kneubühl, Christian Jackowski & Florian D Sprenger
Blunt force is a frequently used type of violence especially because it can be performed with basically every object of our daily lives or with bare hands or feet. The injuries and medical consequences have been widely examined, whereas the forces and especially the energies acting on impact have rarely been analyzed. The aim of the present study is to provide the impact energy and its ranges of four longish everyday items with different characteristics...

Rapid Characterization of Geosynchronous Space Debris with 5-color Near-IR Photometry

A.D. Block, Thomas Schildknecht, K. Rockowitz, H. Alyson Ford, V. Reddy & E. Pearce
The characterization of deep space debris has posed a significant challenge in SSA. To be most operationally effective, characterization must be performed quickly and under non-ideal operational conditions, generally using non-resolved techniques. The use of multi-color photometry and the resultant color indices in the near and short- wave IR offer the potential to rapidly discriminate between debris and intact space objects such as rocket bodies and satellites. Specifically, the color indices surrounding the near-IR Z...
