Sound propagation is affected by the meteorological situation prescribed by the vertical gradient of wind and temperature. In coastal areas like a harbour these gradients can vary along the sound propagation path, especially at water-land crossings. As a result, the sound propagation in these areas cannot be calculated with standard acoustic...

Managed competition implies that health insurers negotiate with care suppliers about price and quality of purchased care. An important precondition for workable competition is that consumers are sensitive to both differences in price and quality. Little is known, however, about consumer preferences with respect to medical care purchased by...

The aim of this study was to determine the bioavailability and kinetics of the supposed anticarcinogen sulforaphane, the hydrolysis product of glucoraphanin, from raw and cooked broccoli. Eight men consumed 200 g of crushed broccoli, raw or cooked, with a warm meal in a randomized, free-living, open cross-over trial. Higher amounts of...

The UMTS Enhanced Uplink (EUL) is expected to provide higher capacity, increased data rates, and smaller latency on the communication link from users towards the network. A key mechanism in EUL traffic handling is the packet scheduler, for which a number of basic schemes can be identified (one-by-one, partial parallel, and full parallel). In...

The constant growth of road traffic leads to increasing noise problems in urban areas. They especially become visible as ‘hot spots’ on noise maps, which have to be made by European cities. To solve these problems, a large variety of measures can be applied, varying from silent roads and noise barriers to reduced speed limits. Recently TNO has...

Background and aims: To investigate the effect of moderate alcohol consumption on lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2 activity, markers of inflammation and oxidative stress and whether these effects are modified by BMI. Methods and results: Eleven lean (BMI: 18.5-25 kg/m2) and 9 overweight (BMI > 27 kg/m2) men participated in a randomized...

This paper presents a vision on the use of self-organisation methods (self-optimisation, self-configuration, and self-healing) as a promising concept to automate wireless access network planning, deployment and optimisation. The major intentions are to improve network coverage, resource utilisa-tion and service quality, and to substantially...

The application of extractants in whole-cell biocatalysis can have a positive impact on industrial fermentations, in terms of productivity, total amount of product produced, and cell growth. When a product is continuously removed from the microorganism surroundings, product inhibition will be diminished. The strategy is exemplified using phenol...

Metabolomics and other omics tools are generally characterized by large data sets with many variables obtained under different environmental conditions. Clustering methods and more specifically two-mode clustering methods are excellent tools for analyzing this type of data. Two-mode clustering methods allow for analysis of the behavior of...

Long range sound propagation is largely affected by the vertical wind and temperature gradients. In areas where the meteorology can be complex, such as coastal areas, islands, and lake districts, the gradients usually vary as a function of the horizontal distance. As a result the sound propagation in these areas cannot be calculated with ...

Appetite suppressants may be one strategy in the fight against obesity. This study evaluated whether Korean pine nut free fatty acids (FFA) and triglycerides (TG) work as an appetite suppressant. Korean pine nut FFA were evaluated in STC-1 cell culture for their ability to increase cholecystokinin (CCK-8) secretion vs. several other dietary...

A new approach for an airport noise monitoring system is presented that comprises not only a number of measuring stations, but also a dedicated sound propagation model and an aircraft noise emission model. This approach enables estimation of noise levels in the whole area around the airport and not only at the location of the measuring stations....

Grain is an important source of phytochemicals, which have potent antioxidant capacity. They have been implicated in the beneficial health effect of whole grains in reducing cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The aim of the present study was to identify the most important antioxidant fractions of wheat grain. It was found that the...

We present an analytical study of throughput measures in processor sharing queuing systems with randomly varying service rates, modelling e.g. a communication link in an integrated services network carrying prioritised fixed rate stream traffic and rate-adaptive elastic traffic. A number of distinct throughput measures for the elastic traffic...

Novel post-genomics experiments such as metabolomics provide datasets that are highly multivariate and often reflect an underlying experimental design, developed with a specific experimental question in mind. ANOVA-simultaneous component analysis (ASCA) can be used for the analysis of multivariate data obtained from an experimental design...

The surfactant nonylphenol (NP) is an endocrine-disrupting compound that is widely spread throughout the environment. Although environmental risk assessments are based on total NP concentrations, only the bioavailable fraction posses an environmental risk. The present study describes the bioavailability and biodegradability of NP over time in...
