The similarity, which scales on the Taylor microscale λ and q2¯, is then used to determine s-b-s energy budgets from the data of Antonia, Zhou, and Romano [“Small-scale turbulence characteristics of two-dimensional bluff body wakes,” J. Fluid Mech.459, 67–92 (2002)] for 5 different two-dimensional wake generators. In each case, the budget is reasonably well closed, using the locally isotropic value of the mean energy dissipation rate, except near separations comparable to the wavelength of the coherent motion (CM). The influence of the initial conditions is first felt at a separation Lc¯ identified with the cross-over between the energy transfer and large scale terms of the s-b-s budget. When normalized by q2¯ and Lc , the mean energy dissipation rate is found to be independent of the Taylor microscale Reynolds number. The CM enhances the maximum value of the energy transfer, the latter exceeding that predicted from models of decaying homogeneous isotropic turbulence.]]> Wed 20 May 2015 16:05:48 EST ]]> French crime fiction and the Second World War: past crimes, present memories (book review) Wed 20 May 2015 15:37:48 EST ]]> Kármán-Howarth closure equation on the basis of a universal eddy viscosity t which exhibits some remarkable universal facets over an impressively wide range of scales. This allows us to model the third-order structure functions in different decaying flows covering a large extent of Reynolds numbers. The model is numerically time integrated to predict the decay of second-order structure functions and compared to experiments in grid turbulence. Agreement between predictions and measurements is satisfactory.]]> Wed 20 May 2015 15:30:47 EST ]]> Statistics of the turbulent kinetic energy dissipation rate and its surrogates in a square cylinder wake flow a, ya, x and the transverse direction y (εa, yhom) and homogeneity in the transverse plane, (ε ), are assessed. All the approximations are in agreement with ε¯ when the distance downstream of the obstacle is larger than about 40 diameters. Closer to the obstacle, the agreement remains reasonable only for ε¯a,x , ε¯hom and ε¯4x. The probability density functions (PDF) and joint PDFs of ε and its surrogates show that ε4x correlates best with ε while εiso and εhom present the smallest correlation. The results indicate that ε4x is a very good surrogate for ε and can be used for correctly determining the behaviour of ε.]]> Wed 20 May 2015 15:02:47 EST ]]> Suboptimal omega-3 levels in Australian adolescents 8. Three percent had an Index of <4, placing them in the high risk category for disease. On average, adolescents from low or medium socioeconomic communities had a significantly lower omega-3 Index compared to those from higher socioeconomic neighbourhoods (mean difference=1.4, p=0.018). Overall 20% of boys and 17% of girls reported regularly taking omega-3 supplements. Regular use of omega-3 supplements was associated with a higher average omega-3 Index (9.8±3.7, n=44 compared to 8.0±3.0, n=203, p=0.001 in those not taking supplements). Conclusion: This study indicates that Australian adolescents, even when from advantaged homes, have a high probability of below optimum omega-3 levels. As reduced omega-3 levels are linked to conditions of public health concern such as diabetes, asthma and depression, targeted strategies to improve the omega-3 status in the childhood population may be warranted.]]> Wed 20 May 2015 14:34:48 EST ]]> On self-preservation and log-similarity in a slightly heated axisymmetric mixing layer δ = U 0δ/ν (U 0 being the jet inlet velocity and δ the momentum thickness) that ought to be achieved for the one-point statistics to behave in a self-similar fashion is assessed. Second, the relevance of different sets of similarity variables for normalizing the energy spectra and structure functions is explored. In particular, a new set of shear similarity variables, emphasizing the range of scales influenced by the mean velocity and temperature gradient, is derived and tested. Since the Reynolds number based on the Taylor microscale increases with respect to the streamwise distance, complete self-preservation cannot be satisfied; instead, the range of scales over which spectra and structure functions comply with self-preservation depends on the particular choice of similarity variables. A similarity analysis of the two-point transport equation, which features the large scale production term, is performed and confirms this. Log-similarity, which implicitly accounts for the variation of the Reynolds number, is also proposed and appears to provide a reasonable approximation to self-preservation, at least for u and θ.]]> Wed 20 May 2015 14:27:47 EST ]]> Collapse of the turbulent dissipative range on Kolmogorov scales Wed 20 May 2015 13:24:48 EST ]]> Pandemic response in low-resource settings requires effective syndromic surveillance Wed 20 May 2015 12:49:48 EST ]]> Re-membering the body in English education Wed 20 May 2015 12:49:48 EST ]]> School change and the challenge of presentism Wed 20 May 2015 12:35:48 EST ]]> Organic solar cells: evaluation of the stability of P3HT using time-delayed degredation Wed 20 May 2015 11:53:45 EST ]]> Mitochondrial DNA neutrophil extracellular traps are formed after trauma and subsequent surgery Wed 20 May 2015 11:39:48 EST ]]> Characterising one-to-one conservatoire teaching: some implications of a quantitative analysis Wed 20 May 2015 10:53:09 EST ]]> The swing to early intervention and prevention and its implications for social work Wed 20 May 2015 10:50:51 EST ]]> Associations between alcohol, smoking, socioeconomic status, and co-morbidities: evidence from the 45 and Up study Wed 20 May 2015 10:43:48 EST ]]> Investigations into current modulation mechanisms in low operating voltage organic thin film transistors and their relationship to the materials employed Wed 20 May 2015 10:43:47 EST ]]> Respiratory viral infections in pregnant women with asthma are associated with wheezing in the first 12 months of life Wed 20 May 2015 10:36:50 EST ]]> Dose optimization for spinal treatment effectiveness (The DOSE Study): a randomized controlled trial investigating the effects of high and low mobilization forces in patients with neck pain Wed 20 May 2015 10:33:43 EST ]]> Chironex fleckeri ( Box Jellyfish) venom proteins: Expansion of a Cnidarian toxin family that elicits variable cytolytic and cardiovascular effects Wed 20 May 2015 10:22:49 EST ]]> High-performance thin film transistor from solution-processed P3HT polymer semiconductor nanoparticles Wed 20 May 2015 09:19:48 EST ]]> Released potential: a qualitative study of the Mental Health Nurse Incentive Programme in Australia Tue 19 May 2015 17:34:48 EST ]]> Feasibility of internet-delivered mental health treatments for rural populations Tue 19 May 2015 17:13:48 EST ]]> Scorpion envenomation Tue 19 May 2015 16:40:35 EST ]]> Blood, guts and knife cuts: reducing the risk of swine brucellosis in feral pig hunters in north-west New South Wales, Australia Thu 28 May 2015 15:42:29 EST ]]> Impact assessment of malaria vector control using routine surveillance data in Zambia: implications for monitoring and evaluation Thu 28 May 2015 14:32:28 EST ]]> What will move malaria control to elimination in South Africa?

At 1-month follow-up, 93 participants were categorized as matched and 195 as mismatched. They preferred text mode (493/803, 61.4%) over combined (216/803, 26.9%) and video modes (94/803, 11.7%). After the intervention, 20% (26/132) of matched-group participants and 34% (96/282) in the mismatched group changed their delivery mode preference. Time effects were significant for all physical activity outcomes (total physical activity: F2,801 = 5.07, P = .009; number of activity sessions: F2,801 = 7.52, P < .001; walking: F2,801 = 8.32, P < .001; moderate physical activity: F2,801 = 9.53, P < .001; and vigorous physical activity: F2,801 = 6.04, P = .002), indicating that physical activity increased over time for both matched and mismatched groups. Matched-group participants improved physical activity outcomes slightly more than those in the mismatched group, but interaction effects were not significant. Physical activity advice acceptability (content scale: t368 = .10, P = .92; layout scale: t368 = 1.53, P = .12) and website usability (layout scale: t426 = .05, P = .96; ease of use scale: t426 = .21, P = .83) were generally high and did not differ between the matched and mismatched groups. The only significant difference (t621 = 2.16, P = .03) was in relation to total time spent on the website: the mismatched group spent significantly more time on the website (14.4 minutes) than the matched group (12.1 minutes). Conclusion: Participants’ preference regarding delivery mode may not significantly influence intervention outcomes. Consequently, allowing participants to choose their preferred delivery mode may not increase effectiveness of Web-based interventions.]]> Thu 28 May 2015 09:24:28 EST ]]> Combined THEMIS and ground-based observations of a pair of substorm-associated electron precipitation events 30 keV electron precipitation flux of 5.6 × 10⁷ el. cm⁻² sr⁻¹ s⁻¹ and a spectral gradient consistent with that observed by THEMIS, it was possible to accurately reproduce the peak observed riometer absorption at Macquarie Island (L = 5.4) and the associated NWC radio wave phase change observed at Casey, Antarctica, during the second, larger substorm. The flux levels were near to 80% of the peak fluxes observed in a similar substorm as studied by Clilverd et al. (2008). During the initial stages of the second substorm, a latitude region of 5 < L < 9 was affected by electron precipitation. Both substorms showed expansion of the precipitation region to 4 < L < 12 more than 30 min after the injection. While both substorms occurred at similar local times, with electron precipitation injections into approximately the same geographical region, the second expanded in an eastward longitude more slowly, suggesting the involvement of lower-energy electron precipitation. Each substorm region expanded westward at a rate slower than that exhibited eastward. This study shows that it is possible to successfully combine these multi-instrument observations to investigate the characteristics of substorms.]]> Thu 28 May 2015 08:42:30 EST ]]> Regulation of CaMKII by phospho-Thr253 or phospho-Thr286 sensitive targeting alters cellular function Thu 21 May 2015 16:21:48 EST ]]> Controlling the cell cycle: the role of calcium/calmodulin-stimulated protein kinases I and II 2+ and calmodulin (CaM) as regulators of the cell cycle. Ca2+/CaM-stimulated proteins, including the family of multifunctional Ca2+/CaM-stimulated protein kinases (CaMK), have also been identified as mediators of cell cycle progression. CaMKII is the best-characterized member of this family, and is regulated by multi-site phosphorylation and targeting. Using pharmacological inhibitors that were believed to be specific for CaMKII , CaMKII has been implicated in every phase of the cell cycle. However, these ‘specific’ inhibitors also produce effects on other CaMKs. These additional effects are usually ignored, and the effects of the inhibitors are normally attributed to CaMKII without further investigation. Using new specific molecular techniques, it has become clear that CaMKI is an important regulator of G₁, whereas CaMKII is essential for regulating G₂/M and the metaphase-anaphase transition. If the mechanisms controlling these events can be fully elucidated, new targets for controlling proliferative diseases may be identified.]]> Thu 21 May 2015 16:14:48 EST ]]> Enhanced oncolysis mediated by Coxsackievirus A21 in combination with doxorubicin hydrochloride Thu 21 May 2015 15:53:48 EST ]]> The pandorica opens: drama and numeracy potentials in primary school Thu 21 May 2015 15:39:46 EST ]]> Teacher and student perspectives on one-to-one pedagogy: practices and possibilities Thu 21 May 2015 14:50:05 EST ]]> Excitotoxic stimulation of brain microslices as an in vitro model of stroke Thu 21 May 2015 12:02:48 EST ]]> The role of molecular regulation and targeting in regulating calcium/calmodulin stimulated protein kinases Thu 21 May 2015 11:41:47 EST ]]> Buffalo Legends Thu 21 May 2015 10:59:53 EST ]]> Rabbit Proof Fence Thu 21 May 2015 10:59:50 EST ]]> Smiley Thu 21 May 2015 10:59:49 EST ]]> Sex and subculture: Bruce Beresford's Puberty Blues Thu 21 May 2015 10:52:56 EST ]]> Rosie's secret Thu 21 May 2015 10:52:53 EST ]]> The Devil's Playground: coming-of-age as national cinema Thu 21 May 2015 10:52:53 EST ]]> Blood is thicker than water: Stains on the land in Bra Boys Thu 21 May 2015 10:52:51 EST ]]> Heavenly Creatures: the 1954 Parker-Hulme case Thu 21 May 2015 10:52:51 EST ]]> Effects of low Reynolds number on decay exponent in grid turbulence 2~(t-to)n, q'20 is the virtual origin) at low Reynolds numbers based on Taylor microscale Rλ(≡ u'λ/v) ≤ 64.
