Methods: The physicochemical properties, antioxidant and cytotoxic activities of crude extracts and fractions from P. amarus were determined using spectrophotometric method. Results: The P. amarus methanol (PAM) extract had lower levels of residual moisture (7.40%) and water activity (0.24) and higher contents of saponins, phenolics, flavonoids, and proanthocyanidins (1657.86 mg escin equivalents, 250.45 mg gallic acid equivalents, 274.73 mg rutin equivalents and 61.22 mg catechin equivalents per g dried extract, respectively) than those of the P. amarus water (PAW) extract. The antioxidant activity of PAM extract was significantly higher (p < 0.05) than that of the PAW extract, PAM fractions, and phyllanthin (known as a major compound in the P. amarus). Higher cytotoxic activity of PAM extract based on MTT assay on different cell lines including MiaPaCa-2 (pancreas), HT29 (colon), A2780 (ovarian), H460 (lung), A431 (skin), Du145 (prostate), BE2-C (neuroblastoma), MCF-7 (breast), MCF-10A (normal breast), and U87, SJ-G2, SMA (glioblastoma) was observed in comparison to the PAW extract and PAM fractions. The cytotoxic potential of the PAW extract (200 µg/mL), based on the CCK-8 assay on a pancreatic cancer cell line (MiaCaPa2) was significantly lower (p < 0.05) than those of gemcitabine (50 nM) and a saponin-enriched extract from quillajia bark at 200 µg/mL (a commercial product), but was significantly higher than that of phyllanthin at 2 µg/mL. Conclusions: The results achieved from this study reveal that the PA extracts are a potential source for the development of natural antioxidant products and/or novel anticancer drugs.]]> Wed 14 Feb 2018 12:04:01 EST ]]> Do board chairs matter? the influence of board chairs on firm performance http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31506 Wed 14 Feb 2018 10:47:02 EST ]]> Bayesian analyses of cognitive architecture http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31505 Wed 14 Feb 2018 09:30:02 EST ]]> On optimality criteria for reverse charging of electric vehicles http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:21074 Tue 20 Feb 2018 18:41:44 EST ]]> Passivity-based control for multi-vehicle systems subject to string constraints http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:19798 Tue 20 Feb 2018 18:38:03 EST ]]> Estimating the proportion cured of cancer: some practical advice for users http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:27286 Tue 20 Feb 2018 18:34:44 EST ]]> Reasoning about dynamic delegation in role based access control systems http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31558 Tue 20 Feb 2018 16:07:44 EST ]]> TrustLite: a security architecture for tiny embedded devices http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31557 Tue 20 Feb 2018 16:00:44 EST ]]> Identification of regulatory networks and hub genes controlling soybean seed set and size using RNA sequencing analysis http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31556 GmCYP78A5, in transgenic soybean resulted in increased seed size and seed weight.

Another strength of the technique is that instead of building multiple trees using any attribute (good or bad) it uses only those attributes that have high classification capabilities. We also present two novel voting techniques in order to predict the class value of an unlabeled record through the collective use of multiple trees. Experimental results demonstrate that SysFor is suitable for multiple pattern extraction and knowledge discovery from both low dimensional and high dimensional data sets by building a number of good quality decision trees. Moreover, it also has prediction accuracy higher than the accuracy of several existing techniques that have previously been shown as having high performance.]]> Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:32:45 EST ]]> Dealing with noise in defect prediction http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31544 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:32:44 EST ]]> Rib suppression in chest radiographs for lung nodule enhancement http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31543 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:32:44 EST ]]> Multi-objective optimisation of power restoration in electricity distribution systems http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31535 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:25:45 EST ]]> Greening Australian construction procurement: stakeholder development of an off-site manufacture adoption tool http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31533 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:25:45 EST ]]> Literature review of power disaggregation http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31534 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:25:44 EST ]]> Identification of breast cancer subtypes using multiple gene expression microarray datasets http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31536 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:25:44 EST ]]> Animal models of COPD: what do they tell us? http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31553 Tue 20 Feb 2018 15:11:47 EST ]]> Performance of screening questionnaires for obstructive sleep apnea during pregnancy: a systematic review and meta-analysis http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31550 I2 = 83.15%).

A probe consisting of eight hot wires (four X-wires) and four cold wires is used to measure simultaneously the three components of the fluctuating velocity and vorticity vectors, as well as the fluctuating temperature gradient vector at nominally the same point in the plane of the mean shear. It is found that the enstrophy and scalar dissipation spectra collapse approximately at all wavenumbers except around the Kármán vortex street wavenumber for χ/d ≽ 20. The spectral similarity between the streamwise velocity fluctuation u and the passive scalar θ is better than that between the velocity fluctuation vector q and θ. This is closely related to the highly organized lateral velocity fluctuation v in this flow. The present observations are fully consistent with the expectation that small scales of the velocity and temperature fields are more likely to exhibit a close relationship than scales associated with the bulk of the turbulent energy or scalar variance. The variation across the wake of the time scale ratio between scalar and velocity fields is significantly smaller than that of the turbulent Prandtl number.]]> Tue 20 Feb 2018 13:47:46 EST ]]> "Down in the gully & just outside the garden walk": white women and the sexual abuse of Aboriginal women on a colonial Australian frontier http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:14191 Tue 20 Feb 2018 13:05:51 EST ]]> 'The privilege of employing natives': the Quan Sing affair and Chinese-aboriginal employment in Western Australia, 1889-1934 http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:10723 Tue 20 Feb 2018 13:05:49 EST ]]> The future of the sociology of youth: institutional, theoretical and methodological challenges http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:15750 Tue 20 Feb 2018 13:05:47 EST ]]> Albrecht Dürer and the ideal city http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18976 Tue 20 Feb 2018 12:59:07 EST ]]> Comparing genotyping algorithms for Illumina's Infinium whole-genome SNP BeadChips http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:13673 Tue 20 Feb 2018 12:58:50 EST ]]> Dynamics of HF radar backscatter in the middle and high latitude ionospheres http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31537 Tue 20 Feb 2018 11:41:59 EST ]]> Life in the 'past lane': an exploration of the motives and metahistorical understanding of family history researchers http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31538 Tue 20 Feb 2018 11:41:54 EST ]]> Fantasy and the real world in British children's literature: the power of story http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22067 Tue 20 Feb 2018 11:40:28 EST ]]> Twitter-ised revolution: extending the governance empire http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:17594 Tue 20 Feb 2018 09:32:09 EST ]]> Settler massacres on the Australian colonial frontier, 1836-1851 http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:16341 Tue 20 Feb 2018 09:21:44 EST ]]> The impact of information sharing misalignment in the Thai construction industry http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:28876 Tue 20 Feb 2018 09:11:14 EST ]]> Smartphone apps for the self-management of low back pain: a systematic review http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31263 Tue 20 Feb 2018 08:53:47 EST ]]> Contextual ambidexterity and innovation in healthcare in India: the role of HRM http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31499 Tue 13 Feb 2018 16:28:20 EST ]]> Creep and creep recovery properties of polystyrene aggregate concrete http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:21489 Tue 13 Feb 2018 16:22:36 EST ]]> Effects of visual flow direction on signs and symptoms of cybersickness http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31493 2 = 0.45).

Paleochannels ranged from 475 to 1180 m wide and from 35 to 50 m deep, with meander-belt width-to-thickness ratios between 107:1 and 401:1. The data reveal evidence for intra-point-bar erosion and punctuated rotation, counter-point-bar development, and protracted channel cut-off and meander-loop abandonment. Observations enable interpretation of morphodynamic processes that are commonly observed in modern systems, yet rarely described from the rock record. A 3-D geocellular model and reconstructed paleochannel migration patterns reveal the evolutionary history of seventeen individual meander belt-elements, including point bars, counter-point bars, and their associated abandoned channel fills, which have been mapped using core, FMI logs, and seismic data. Results of the study show that intrapoint- bar erosion surfaces bound accretion packages characterized by unique accretion directions, internal stratigraphic architecture, and lithologic properties. We provide evidence for channel-belt-edge confinement and development of a counter-point bar, as well as the deposition of side bars and preservation of a mid-channel bar during meander-bend abandonment. Analysis of changes in meander-belt morphology over time reveal a decrease in channel-belt width/thickness ratio and sinuosity, which we compare with observations from the lower Mississippi River and attribute to the landward migration of the paleo-backwater limit due to transgression of the Cretaceous Boreal Sea into the Alberta foreland basin.]]> Tue 13 Feb 2018 16:22:27 EST ]]> Psy-disciplinary cogs in the teacher education machine http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:28320 Discipline and Punish Foucault (1977) offered the notion of the "psy- disciplines," as a collective term for psychology, psychiatry, psycho- analysis, and psychotherapies, and described how they became entangled in new forms of "governing at a distance" during the 19th century.

Results: A total of 45 LD-CF cases were identified (39 NBS-negative and 6 NBS-positive) with 90 NBS-CF matched controls. Median age (IQR) of diagnosis for LD-CF and NBS-CF was 1.35 (0.4-2.8) and 0.12 (0.03-0.2) years, respectively (P <.0001). Estimated incidence of LD-CF was 1 in 45 000 live births.

In this paper, we obtain the partition dimension of circulant graphs [formula cannot be replicated]]]> Thu 15 Feb 2018 09:46:02 EST ]]> Predicting wheel forces using bearing capacity theory for general planar loads http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31241 Thu 15 Feb 2018 08:43:03 EST ]]> A multi-state, multi-site, multi-sector healthcare improvement model: implementing evidence for practice http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31532 Mon 19 Feb 2018 15:51:50 EST ]]> Multilayer hybrid strategy for phishing email zero-day filtering http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31531 Mon 19 Feb 2018 15:37:47 EST ]]> An environmental study on the collapse of a tenement building in HK http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18524 Mon 19 Feb 2018 15:35:14 EST ]]> Transcriptomic and metabolomics responses to elevated cell wall invertase activity during tomato fruit set http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31530 Mon 19 Feb 2018 15:02:47 EST ]]> Molecular evolution of grass stomata http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31529 Mon 19 Feb 2018 14:34:47 EST ]]> ε constrained differential evolution for economic dispatch with valve-point effect http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31527 Mon 19 Feb 2018 14:34:46 EST ]]> Contractual complexity, governance and organisational form in alliances http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31528 Mon 19 Feb 2018 14:34:46 EST ]]> Performing opera: a practical guide for singers and directors http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:29060 Mon 19 Feb 2018 14:16:04 EST ]]> Ezetimibe: use, costs, and adverse events in Australia http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31526 Mon 19 Feb 2018 14:13:46 EST ]]> Experimental investigation of water penetration through semi-interlocking masonry walls http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31525 Mon 19 Feb 2018 13:38:52 EST ]]> The rational-transcendental dichotomy of Mahler functions http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:14415 Mon 19 Feb 2018 13:24:48 EST ]]> Thermal performance analysis of tunable magnetite nanofluids for an energy system http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31524 3O4/DI-water nanofluid is experimentally investigated under both laminar and turbulent flow regimes. The magnetite ferrofluids with 0.25% and 0.50% of weight fractions are prepared by a chemical precipitating method using ammonium hydroxide reagent for maximising the stabilisation. The experiments were conducted at various mass flow rates with two different external magnets arrangements and input powers. The result shows that the enhancement in local heat coefficient was more pronounced by introducing more magnets on the tube of the test section, especially in the turbulent flow regime. The heat transfer coefficient improves with an increase in Reynolds number as well. In addition, the effect of the magnetic field was not significant on the increment of pressure loss. Therefore, the highest performance index and lowest exergy loss were found for external magnets configurations at 0.25 wt% of nanofluids. The rise in heat transfer is assumed to be an accumulation of nanoparticles near the ring magnets, which may lead to a local thermal conductivity improvement. This aggregation formation enhancing the momentum and energy transfer in the fluid flow.]]> Mon 19 Feb 2018 13:24:47 EST ]]> Bounds on minors of binary matrices http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:13816 Mon 19 Feb 2018 12:04:49 EST ]]> Reconceptualising cultural heritage: the adaptive cycle as a means of rebranding the risk and vulnerabilities of cultural built heritage in the face of natural disasters http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:15932 Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:46:51 EST ]]> Anti-Americanism in European literature http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:13326 Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:24:40 EST ]]> Conceptualising e-business models for SMEs in the AEC sector: a product and services perspective http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18635 Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:08:20 EST ]]> A conceptual approach to studying the organisational culture of construction projects http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:14905 Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:04:48 EST ]]> Strategic planning indicators for urban regeneration: a case study on mixed-use development in Seoul http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:21395 Mon 19 Feb 2018 11:04:46 EST ]]> Students' experience of the psychology fourth year in Australia http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:16174 Mon 19 Feb 2018 10:57:50 EST ]]> Evolutionary optimization: pitfalls and booby traps http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:15342 Mon 19 Feb 2018 10:57:49 EST ]]> Bio-augmentation and nutrient amendment decrease concentration of mercury in contaminated soil http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31523 Sphingobium SA2 and nutrient amendment. In a field with ~ 280 mg/kg Hg, 60% of Hg was removed by bio-augmentation in 7 days, and the removal was improved when nutrients were added. Whereas in artificially spiked soils, with ~ 100 mg/kg Hg, removal due to bio-augmentation was 33 to 48% in 14 days. In the field contaminated soil, nutrient amendment alone without bio-augmentation removed 50% of Hg in 28 days. Nutrient amendment also had an impact on Hg remediation in the spiked soils, but the best results were obtained when the strain and nutrients both were applied. The development of longer root lengths from lettuce and cucumber seeds grown in the remediated soils confirmed that the soil quality improved after bioremediation. This study clearly demonstrates the potential of Hg-reducing bacteria in remediation of Hg-contaminated soils. However, it is desirable to trap the volatilized Hg for enhanced bioremediation.]]> Mon 19 Feb 2018 09:54:48 EST ]]> Assessment of the binding performance of histamine-imprinted microspheres by frontal analysis capillary electrophoresis http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31522 Kd ∼ 0.4 mM). FACE was easily carried out at shorter binding equilibration time (i.e. 30 min) and without the need to separate the microspheres, circumventing laborious and, in the case of the system under study, inefficient sample filtration. It also allowed for competitive binding studies by virtue of its ability to distinctly separate intact microspheres and all tested amines which could not be resolved in HPLC. Kd’s for nonimprinted (control) microspheres (NIM) from FACE and HPLC were also comparable (∼ 0.6 mM) but at higher histamine concentrations, HPLC gave lower histamine binding. This discrepancy was attributed to inefficient filtration of the batch binding samples prior to HPLC analysis resulting in an over-estimation of the concentration of free histamine brought about by the presence of unfiltered histamine-bound microspheres.]]> Mon 19 Feb 2018 09:40:47 EST ]]> A smart experience-based knowledge analysis system (SEKAS) http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:17648 Mon 19 Feb 2018 09:16:29 EST ]]> Application of the third medium method for frictionless contact problems in geomechanics http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31521 Mon 19 Feb 2018 09:05:46 EST ]]> Identifying communities of trust and confidence in the charity and not-for-profit sector: a memetic algorithm approach http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:18758 Mon 19 Feb 2018 08:58:45 EST ]]> Anxiety levels are independently associated with cognitive performance in an Australian multiple sclerosis patient cohort http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:31520 Mon 19 Feb 2018 08:51:51 EST ]]> Nonlinear ℒ<sub>2</sub>-gain verification for bilinear systems http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:19588 2-gain property that naturally generalizes the standard (linear) ℒ2-gain inequality.
