appraisal of teachers in the faculty of veterinary science, university of 1988, the faculty of veterinary science, university of liverpool, introduced a system of teacher appraisal, following the report of a faculty working party. the system is designed to provide information which will help the personal development of teaching skills, and also to provide the information required by the university for promoting a lecturer to senior lecturer. it incorporates opinions from students, collected formally by means of questionnaires, and from personal peers chosen by the ...20051287953
aerosol ventilation scintigraphy in the evaluation of bronchopleural fistula: a case report and literature review.radioaerosol scanning is simple to perform and is widely used in conjunction with perfusion imaging to detect pulmonary emboli. it may also be a valuable tool for the early diagnosis of postpneumonectomy bronchopleural fistula. the authors present an illustrative case in which radioactive aerosol imaging was used to confirm a bronchopleural fistula secondary to pneumonectomy for squamous cell carcinoma.20071913391
development of spermatozoa in the rhea.we have examined the ultrastructural changes that take place during spermiogenesis in the rhea. spermatozoa are characterized by a curved head and a midpiece. a thin rod extends from the anterior tip of the spermatozoon through the center of the nucleus. a 3-mu-long distal centriole occupies the entire midpiece. the principal piece is characterized by a small fibrous sheath and tiny dense fibers that are only observed in the region of the principal piece, which is immediately behind the annulus. ...20102923278

coordinated delivery of clinical care: the "re-integration" of the medical group practice.this paper suggests that for medical knowledge to be effective, it must be reliably translated into a series of synchronized activities, both clinical and operational. the goal of medical information science must be not only to identify the best course of care, but also through the use of systems for the ordering, scheduling, and deployment of staff and resources to assure that the planned course of care is reliably and efficiently delivered in actual practice settings. we present a brief histor ...20061482950
long-chain (z)-9-alkenes are "psychedelics" to houseflies with regard to visually stimulated sex attraction and aggregation.three different tests on houseflies (musca domestica l.) revealed that both pheromone-free pseudoflies and male partner flies exhibit in the presence of mixtures of long-chain (z)-9-alkenes or pure (z)-9-tricosene enhanced releasing effects for two optical cues, which stimulate male houseflies to mating strikes and houseflies of both sexes to aggregation.19541269604
