The Cadigal, also spelled as Gadigal, are a group of Aboriginal Australians who originally inhabited the area that they called 'Cadi'. Cadigal territory lies south of Port Jackson covering today's Sydney CBD and stretches from South Head to Petersham with part of the southern boundary lying on the Cooks River. The Cadigal language is a derivative of the Darug language.Soon after his arrival at Port Jackson, Governor Arthur Phillip estimated the Indigenous population of the Sydney district at around 1500 people, although other estimates range from as low as 200 to as high as 4000.The Cadigal clan was estimated to have 50-80 people.The Cadigal were coastal people who were dependent on the harbour for providing most of their food. They were one of seven clans living in coastal Sydney who spoke a common language and have become known as the Eora people. ‘Eora’ simply means ‘people’ or ‘of this place’ in their language.The occupation of the Sydney area by the British and the subsequent introduction of European diseases including smallpox decimated the Eora people and their neighbours. The disastrous 1789 smallpox epidemic is estimated to have killed about 50% of Sydney's indigenous population, and it has been claimed that only three Cadigal people were left alive by 1791, although archaeological evidence suggests that some Cadigal people may have escaped to the Concord area and settled there.Part of the Cadigal territory is in the Marrickville local government area of Sydney in 1994 the Marrickville Aboriginal Consultative Committee was established and the Cadigal Wangal peoples website.

Imaging and visualization of latent fingerprints on smooth surfaces is not an easy task when the latent finger mark is on smooth and/or high reflecting surfaces. The surface where the fingerprint is located may present many physical and optical constraints, such as roughness, high background fluorescence which may be handled using time-resolved luminescence imaging (Mitchell and Menzel, Proc SPIE 1054:191–195, 1989; Alaoui et al., Forensic Sci Int 152:215–219, 2005). Optical techniques like oblique angle illumination and columnar-thin-film acquisition of fingerprint topology have been successfully used for visualization of fingermarks on smooth glass and mirror surfaces (Alaoui, Time-resolved luminescence imaging and applications. In: Byrnes (ed) Imaging for detection and identification. NATO security through science series. Springer, Netherlands, pp 243–248, 2007). We report preliminary results on the visualization of latent fingerprints on two smooth surfaces (glass and windows aluminum) using columnar thin films (CTF) nanostructures of CaF2 followed by 1,2-indanedione fluorescence (Shaler, J Nanophotonics 5:051509, 2011). The preliminary results are promising. We have been able to visualize fingerprints on glass under dark field measurement after CTF deposition and observation under microscope (Dutta et al., Forensic Sci Int 228:32–37, 2013). Fingerprints on frame windows aluminum were able to be visualized after CTF deposition and 1,2-indanedione fluorescence. These results may open new options in fingerprint visualization and detection using columnar thin films followed by fluorescent reagents. Our preliminary results show that this technique can be useful for latent fingerprints on nonporous surfaces. More work is necessary to optimize the CTF deposition process and the chemical post treatment (solution concentration, temperature, humidity, etc.). © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015.

The underlying disorder in the vast majority of cases of cardiovascular disease (CVD) is atherosclerosis, for which low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is recognized as the first and foremost risk factor. HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, popularly called statins, are highly effective and remarkably safe in reducing LDL-C and non-HDL-C levels. Evidence from clinical trials have demonstrated that statin therapy can reduce the risk of myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, death, and the need for coronary artery revascularization procedures (CARPs) by 25-50%, depending on the magnitude of LDL-C lowering achieved. Benefits are seen in men and women, young and old, and in people with and without diabetes or prior diagnosis of CVD. Clinical trials comparing standard statin therapy to intensive statin therapy have clearly demonstrated greater benefits in CVD risk reduction (including halting the progression and even reversing coronary atherosclerosis) without any corresponding increase in risk. Numerous outcome trials of intensive statin therapy using atorvastatin 80 mg/d have demonstrated the safety and the benefits of lowering LDL-C to very low levels. This led the USNCEP Guideline Committee to standardize 40 mg/dL as the optimum LDL-C level, above which the CVD risk begins to rise. Recent studies have shown intensive statin therapy can also lower CVD events even in low-risk individuals with LDL-C <110 mg/dL. Because of the heightened risk of CVD in Asian Indians, the LDL-C target is set at 30 mg/dL lower than that recommended by NCEP. Accordingly, the LDL-C goal is < 70 mg/dL for Indians who have CVD, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, or chronic kidney disease. Intensive statin therapy is often required in these populations as well as others who require a > or = 50% reduction in LDL-C. Broader acceptance of this lower LDL-C targets and its implementation could reduce the CVD burden in the Indian population by 50% in the next 25 years. Clinical trial data support an extremely favorable benefit-to-risk ratio of intensive statin therapy with some but not all statins. Atorvastatin 80 mg/d is 100 times safer than aspirin 81 mg/d and 10 times safer than diabetic medications. Intensive statin therapy is more effective and safe compared to intensive control of blood sugar or blood pressure in patients with diabetes.

In this work, we describe an adaptation of Fourier-Hankel method to Abel inversion for the deflection tomographic reconstruction of axisymmetric temperature field. This technique is compared with existing methods to test the accuracy and error propagation using simulated Moiré stripes of natural convection flow above a heated horizontal disk in air. Simpson's 1/3rd rule and one-point and two-point formulas are used in this comparison. The results showed that the proposed technique for Abel inversion is accurate and has the powerful capacity to control the smoothing degree of noise in the inversion process. © 2013 Optical Society of America.

Embodiments provide a method which includes transmitting, by a receiving device (RD), a request message which includes a receiving device identification number (RDIN); receiving, by the RD, a registration message including a measuring device identification number (MDIN) from a measuring device (MD); registering, by the RD, the MD by means of the MDIN if the registration message from the MD includes the RDIN; receiving, by the RD, one or more data messages from the MD, each data message including the MDIN and a physiological parameter; and processing the physiological parameter in each data message, by the RD, if the MD has been registered by the RD. The range of the transmission of the request message between the RD and the MD is shorter than the range of the transmission of each data message between the MD and the RD, and/or the range of the transmission of the registration message between the MD and the RD is shorter than the range of the transmission of each data message between the MD and the RD. Embodiments also provide a corresponding monitoring system.
