The aim of this research was to explore the relationship between chewing ability and dental functional status, perceived oral health-related quality of life, and a number of background variables in a Vietnamese population. The cluster stratified sample consisted of 2,805 dentate subjects aged 20 years from urban and rural areas in Southern Vietnam. Chewing ability was assessed using a questionnaire that included questions on perceived difficulty with respect to eight foods and three questions of the Oral Health Impact Profile that were considered relevant. Only a minority reported serious problems with chewing ability (reporting difficult or very difficult to chew). The logistic regression analysis on chewing ability outcomes showed significant relationships between chewing ability and having 10 teeth in each arch, having sufficient molar regions ( 1 molar posterior occlusal pair [POP] bilaterally) for hard and soft foods, and having sufficient premolar regions ( 3 POPs), especially for hard foods. In the hierarchical functional classification system, likelihood to report complaints on chewing ability appeared to discriminate in the branch " 10 teeth in each arch." Likelihood at subsequent levels ranged from approximately 1.5 to 3. In the branch "< 10 teeth in each arch," likelihood did not discriminate because the groups lacked sufficient homogeneity. Chewing ability and oral health-related quality of life were positively correlated. Among all dental and other variables, decreased chewing ability was strongest when correlated with older age categories and not correlated or weakly correlated with sex, socioeconomic status, and residence.

This study investigated the possibility of utilizing detoxified sugarcane bagasse hydrolysate (DSCBH) as an alternative carbon source to culture Yarrowia lipolytica Po1g for microbial oil and biodiesel production. Sugarcane bagasse hydrolysis with 2.5% HCl resulted in maximum total sugar concentration (21.38g/L) in which 13.59g/L is xylose, 3.98g/L is glucose, and 2.78g/L is arabinose. Detoxification of SCBH by Ca(OH) 2 neutralization reduced the concentration of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural and furfural by 21.31% and 24.84%, respectively. Growth of Y. lipolytica Po1g in DSCBH with peptone as the nitrogen source gave maximum biomass concentration (11.42g/L) compared to NH 4NO 3 (6.49g/L). With peptone as the nitrogen source, DSCBH resulted in better biomass concentration than d-glucose (10.19g/L), d-xylose (9.89g/L) and NDSCBH (5.88g/L). The maximum lipid content, lipid yield and lipid productivity of Y. lipolytica Po1g grown in DSCBH and peptone was 58.5%, 6.68g/L and 1.76g/L-day, respectively. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

In this paper we present the results of an ecosystem service value derivation for the Can Gio Mangrove Biosphere Reserve in Vietnam. We combine earth-observation-based mapping at the main species level with the result of an extensive socio-economic household survey to assess the value of direct and indirect ecosystem services provided by Can Gio's mangroves. Remotely sensed optical and radar data from 2011 were used to derive the precise extent of mangrove coverage. Household survey results led to an understanding of the value placed on mangroves by different occupational groups, namely, forest managers, fisherman, shrimp farmers, and other farmers. Common to all is a lack of understanding of the value of a natural resource if no direct income is generated. At the same time, depending on occupation, a clear trend towards appreciating and understanding the importance of mangroves can be observed: it is the highest with local and migratory fisherman, followed by forest managers, while shrimp farmers have the least knowledge about mangrove benefits, and also express the least willingness to further protect them. Values derived from the household surveys as well as secondary sources - in combination with remote-sensing-based mapping - enabled us to determine the ecosystem services value of Can Gio mangroves for selected categories of advantages. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

We show that the typical 3-3-1 models are only self-consistent if they contain interactions that explicitly violate the lepton number. The 3-3-1 model with right-handed neutrinos can by itself work as an economical 3-3-1 model as a natural recognition of the above criteria, while it also produces an inert scalar triplet (η) responsible for dark matter. This is ensured by a Z 2 symmetry (assigned so that only η is odd while all other multiplets which perform the economical 3-3-1 model are even), which is not broken by the vacuum. The minimal 3-3-1 model can provide dark matter by a similar realization. Taking the former into account, we show that the dark matter candidate (Hη) contained in η transforms as a singlet in the effective limit under the standard model symmetry and is naturally heavy. The Hη relic density and direct detection cross section will have the correct values when the mass of Hη is in TeV range, as expected. The model predicts the Hη mass mHη= λ5×2 TeV and the Hη-nucleon scattering cross section σHη-N=1.56×10-44 cm2, provided that the new neutral Higgs boson is much heavier than the dark matter. © 2013 American Physical Society.

We propose a very weak type of generalized distances called a weak τ-function and use it to weaken the assumptions about lower semicontinuity in existing versions of Ekeland's variational principle and equivalent formulations. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
