Spilogale putorius Eastern Spotted Skunk is considered rare in the southern Appalachian Mountains and throughout much of its range. We report incidental captures of 6 Eastern Spotted Skunks in a high-elevation Picea rubens Red Spruce forest in southwestern Virginia during late February and March At m, these observations are the highest-elevation records for Eastern Spotted Skunk in the Appalachian Mountains.

They are also the first known records of this species using Red Spruce forests in the southern Appalachians. Aquila chrysaetos Golden Eagle breeds in both eastern and western North America. However, the former population has received much less attention than the latter. The purpose of this paper is to document the known distribution and abundance of eastern Golden Eagles within their breeding range and to identify gaps in knowledge for future studies.

The species has been extirpated as a breeder from the eastern US.

InGolden Eagle territorial pairs were documented in eastern Canada. The large area of unsurveyed landscapes and the corresponding lack of precision of the estimate highlight an important next step for future research. Until recently, it was thought that Berberis thunbergii Japanese Barberrya non-native invasive plant that has become particularly widespread in certain regions of New Jersey, benefited from a lack of herbivorous defoliators.

However, in extensive defoliation was documented across a wide geographical distribution in New Jersey, calling this assumption into question. We found almost no impact of defoliation on growth, carbon storage, or leaf-level physiology for either treatment.

We noted some differences between large and small plants, but these were not related to defoliation treatments. Our results suggest that, even in the presence of herbivory, Japanese Barberry is capable of maintaining growth and carbon reserves, thus making it an effective competitor for resources.

Browsing by Odocoileus virginianus White-tailed Deer plays an important role in shaping forest structure in the northeastern US. Predation can influence patterns of browse through decreasing White-tailed Deer abundance and influencing patterns of habitat selection. Canis latrans Coyote is the dominant predator of White-tailed Deer in our focal region in northern New York. Optimal foraging theory suggests that White-tailed Deer browse in locations that maximize energy intake while minimizing predation risk.

Linear forest edges provide abundant woody browse for White-tailed Deer, but are also used as travel-ways by Coyotes in our focal region. These locations therefore provide a venue for testing the extent to which predation risk influences patterns of White-tailed Deer browsing. We quantified White-tailed Deer browse use for edge and interior sites and the density of Coyote scats along seventeen m transects to evaluate the scale at which White-tailed Deer herbivory was affected by Coyote predation risk.

We did not observe a change in White-tailed Deer browsing at the landscape scale in response to variation in the risk of Coyote predation, or a mitigating role of escape cover. However, we did detect a tendency for White-tailed Deer to shift browsing from the forest edge to interior along transects with more Coyotes.The aim of the study was to assess the impact of 10 weeks of bodyweight training on selected elements of body composition body mass, muscle mass, and the percentage of body fat and water and components of physical fitness strength, strength endurance, flexibility, and aerobic capacity of women aged years who do not practise sports professionally.

Material and methods. The study involved 15 women whose mean age was 22 years 2 months. Their body mass and composition were assessed using a TANITA BC scale, and the following parameters of physical fitness were measured: the strength and power of the upper and lower extremities; the strength endurance of the shoulders, shoulder girdle, and trunk; as well as their flexibility and physical capacity.

The assessment was performed twice, that is before and after the completion of the week programme. The study revealed that the week bodyweight training programme had caused a minor increase in body mass 1. As far as physical fitness is concerned, the bodyweight exercises had had a positive impact on all of the elements of physical fitness which were measured, including statistically significant increases in the explosive strength of the lower extremities 5.

Without a properly balanced diet and nutrition control, the bodyweight training programme had a small impact on the parameters of body composition. It was, however, an effective way of enhancing general physical fitness: apart from improving muscle strength and endurance, it also increased physical capacity and flexibility. Weimo Z.

Not surprisingly, we seem to retire later than most, and keep working at our profession even after that, right to our last moments.

We will teach adjunct for our favorite course, take on special projects for our schools, do more speaking, and almost always more writing and reviewing, some producing their magnum opus after retirement. Being professors of Bible and related areas, we may devote more time to our local church, or preaching at needy congregations.

And we will always keep reading, maybe a bit more fiction and biography than we did earlier but still we have our eye on the next biblical or theological volume read. As students, educators, and scholars, we hold in deep admiration and devotion our dear professors.

They gain a special place of endearment in our hearts because they—each in their own way—nurtured us in our path toward being professors and scholars and studied preachers ourselves. We owe them so much for who we have become.

I have seen giants of my life pass, I. Just the utterance of one of the names conjures up classroom memories—even memories of specific things learned. What a loss to so many when they go on to be with the Lord. When preparing this issue, I planned that we would honor the memory of one special colleague who taught at Lincoln Christian Seminary for over 25 years, Gary Hall, who died on June 15,at the age of 78, after a long battle with brain cancer and other complications.

The very handsome volume includes very good articles, five from former students who have earned doctorates in OT, plus seven by Lincoln colleagues and academic friends.

Unfortunately, Mosaic located in Australia has closed and no copies are now available to the public other than through libraries. After not hearing back regarding one author's final read-through of his article being published in this issue, I did some digging only to discover that he had passed two months before Gary.

Daniel Fletcher, who taught for Amridge University from his home in Norwood, Pemmsylvania, died on March 27,at the age of He died due to complications from cystic fibrosis which he dealt with his whole life.

And even later, as I was editing through the book reviews, I discovered we also have a review in this issue of Daniel's last book, published intitled: Psalms of Christ: The Messiah in Non-Messianic Psalms. Publication of Daniel's article and review of his book stand as a memorium to him in this issue.

volume 22, issue 2 (2015)

I was fortunate to be a good friend of Gary's and was blessed to be able to see him shortly before his passing. He seemed gratified that his life work as a professor was recognized by the Lifetime Achievement Award we were able to present to him by video at this year's SCJ Conference at Johnson University. He so much deserved to be only our third honoree of this award, his life serving as a picture-perfect role model of a scholar-teacher with a pastor's heart. He served as consulting editor for thirteen years, for much of that time also managing Old Testament book reviews as well as evaluating OT articles that I received.

He has been a constant presence at the SCJ Conference from the beginning, delivering numerous parallel sessions. He is among the original few who for the eight years before that was part of just a handful of scholars who held "Fellowship of Professors" meetings while I was at St.

Louis Christian College giving a paper as early as With fewer attendees, I was constantly in need of people to present papers, and Gary would always come through to present his well-prepared papers, usually on Deuteronomy, one of the books to which he devoted his life.

I still remember with deep gratitude my first contact with Gary in while he was dean at Kentucky Christian College. I was a PhD student near to completing my degree in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, sending out resumes to deans for potential job hopes.

Gary responded with the most encouraging letter of all. Not knowing me at all, he gave me hope to keep moving toward my future to teach. Little did I know then that Gary would wind up being such a good friend and advisor.

He has been a treasure to be able to know. I did not know Daniel Fletcher, but I have seen the posts of several former students who speak of gratitude and thanksgiving for his influence on them. He received his Ph. Daniel published five academic articles, including two in Restoration Quarterly, one on Alexander Campbell and adult baptism, as well as articles in other publications, including the twelve in the.

Daniel certainly made his mark in the few short years he was able to be actively engaged in teaching and scholarship. Both Gary and Daniel I am sure leave behind not just beloved family but many, many students who feel so blessed to have come under their influence.Nowadays development of infrastructures is becoming number one priority in the world, particularly in the developing countries.

So there are great demands within the construction industries for river sand as fine aggregate used in the production of concrete. This has created a very difficult situation; the cost of river sand has increased and also there is great fear from environmentalist and ecologist that in the future there may be scarcity of river sand and the environment and the ecology will be distorted.

Hence, the need to find materials which are affordable and available to partially or totally replaced river sand in the production of concrete. This work is focused on the use of quarry dust as a total replacement to river sand in the production of concrete, and comparing the results compressive strength to that obtained from conventional concrete made with river sand. Its order of convergence is analyzed and proved. Results for some numerical examples show the efficiency of the new method.

The potential of Senna-Italica extract as a corrosion inhibitor for carbon steel in 1 M HCl was determined using electrochemical frequency modulation EFMelectrochemical impedance spectroscopy EISpotentiodynamic polarization and weight loss methods. The adsorption process obeyed Freundlich adsorption isotherm.

Maximum inhibition was attained Potentiodynamic polarization measurement studies revealed that senna-italica extract behave as a mixed-type inhibitor in 1 M HCl. The inhibition efficiencies of senna-italica extract obtained from the all various measurements were in good agreement. In this paper, the torsion capacity of cracking point on rectangular and shell like beams with spiral reinforcements in the torsion direction and its anti-direction are investigated.

Also, the behavior of spirally-reinforced prismatic beams has been assessed. Therefore, models of above-mentioned beams have been numerically analyzed under various loads using ANSYS software.

In this research, the operation of rectangular reinforced concrete beam is compared with the shell reinforced concrete beam.

It was observed that, spirally-reinforced prismatic beam and beam with spiral links, show lower torsion capacity than beam with normal links also in anti-direction. The demand for additional gain and bandwidth at high frequency normally presents the need to cascade amplifying circuits. However cascading technique always has a drawback of shrinking bandwidth. Cascade-cascode amplifier is hereby modified to have an enhanced bandwidth through the application of negative feedback.

Both the simulation and analysis of the proposed configuration shows significant improvement on the bandwidth. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma NPC is a malignancy that is most found in the ortholaryngology in Indonesia. Primary diagnostic is checked by non-invasive of blood and brushing of nasopharyngeal.

The objectives of the research : to compare between the plasma of EBV DNA load and viral load of tissue brushing in correlation with the stadium of nasopharyngeal cancer.

Volume 22 (2015): Pages 113-219

The method : 39 patients of NPC and 29 healthy as control were subjects in this study. Brushing and blood for viral load and VCA interchangeable. Therefore, non-invasive methods using peripheral blood can be proposed to replace invasive methods of brushing both for viral Load and for VCA.

Conclusion : it is as a marker for the presence of nasopharyngeal cancer and the progression of the disease. Home Journals About Us. Journal Menu. Walter, Ibearugbulem H.Fructose consumption has dramatically increased in the last 30 years.

The principal form has been in the form of high-fructose corn syrup found in soft drinks and processed food. The effect of excessive fructose consumption on human health is only beginning to be understood.

Fructose has been confirmed to induce several obesity-related complications associated with the metabolic syndrome.

Here we present an overview of fructose metabolism and how it contrasts with that of glucose. In addition, we examine how excessive fructose consumption can affect de novo lipogenesis, insulin resistance, inflammation, and reactive oxygen species production. Fructose can also induce a change in the gut permeability and promote the release of inflammatory factors to the liver, which has potential implications in increasing hepatic inflammation. Moreover, fructose has been associated with colon, pancreas, and liver cancers, and we shall discuss the evidence for these observations.

Taken together, data suggest that sustained fructose consumption should be curtailed as it is detrimental to long-term human health. World Health Organization Fact Sheet. Obesity and overweight.
