Sediment samples and soils along the coast line of the Adriatic Sea were sampled along a transect near the coast line at Zadar/Croatia, ranging from north-western suburbs via the historical centre and the industrial area to south-east suburbs. The sediments were dominated by carbonates and clay minerals, and contaminations with Cd-Cu-Pb-Zn-TOC (total organic carbon) at the historical centre and the industrial site were detected, as well as P and Mo input at the mouth of a small creek, probably from agriculture. No trends between the composition of surface and subsurface sea sediments were seen. At the historic harbour site, total element concentrations versus grain size showed a minimum in the fine silt fraction for most of the elements analysed. The soil samples behind the shoreline were not carbonaceous, but dominated by Fe-Al- oxides, some contained high levels of Be-Cd-Cu-Sn-Zn. Surprisingly, high TOC values within the soils might be assigned to human impacts, not to humus. Contrary to data from street dust samples from Seoul city/Korea, which were measured within our laboratory at the same time, Pt-Ir-Au were at ambient levels due to the limited use of catalysts in cars in the Zadar area at the time of sampling. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.

Transposable elements possess specific patterns of integration. The biological impact of these integration profiles is not well understood. Tf1, a long-terminal repeat retrotransposon in Schizosaccharomyces pombe, integrates into promoters with a preference for the promoters of stress response genes. To determine the biological significance of Tf1 integration, we took advantage of saturated maps of insertion activity and studied how integration at hot spots affected the expression of the adjacent genes. Our study revealed that Tf1 integration did not reduce gene expression. Importantly, the insertions activated the expression of 6 of 32 genes tested. We found that Tf1 increased gene expression by inserting enhancer activity. Interestingly, the enhancer activity of Tf1 could be limited by Abp1, a host surveillance factor that sequesters transposon sequences into structures containing histone deacetylases. We found the Tf1 promoter was activated by heat treatment and, remarkably, only genes that themselves were induced by heat could be activated by Tf1 integration, suggesting a synergy of Tf1 enhancer sequence with the stress response elements of target promoters. We propose that the integration preference of Tf1 for the promoters of stress response genes and the ability of Tf1 to enhance the expression of these genes co-evolved to promote the survival of cells under stress. © 2012 The Author(s).

The Ranch, part of the Elements Behavioral Health® national platform of addiction and mental health programs, welcomes two centers to its treatment family: COPAC, which will now be known as The Ranch Mississippi (at COPAC), and Brightwater Landing, to be renamed The Ranch Pennsylvania (at Brightwater Landing). The three facilities share a treatment philosophy that emphasizes individualized care, experienced staff with specialized skills, and a wide range of approaches to treat trauma, drug, alcohol and behavioral addiction, eating disorders, anxiety and depression. The Ranch programs are nestled in peaceful, rural locations that allow clients to tap into the restorative power of nature. “These are serene environments that provide a sense of security for clients, as well as a reprieve from everyday stressors,” explained Chris Karkenny, Chief Executive Officer of Elements Behavioral Health. “Bringing the three programs under one umbrella allows us to deepen our commitment to treating trauma-related disorders by sharing best practices and innovations among programs. It also allows us to meet the diverse needs of varying regions with respect to price and insurance plan offerings.” The Ranch treatment centers offer multiple treatment programs at various levels of care, from onsite medical detox to residential and outpatient treatment. Clients benefit from a wide range of experiential therapies that promote hands-on learning and take advantage of the natural environment. “At The Ranch treatment centers, healing isn’t just something that happens sitting around an office talking. Our approach emphasizes situations where clients engage in deeply moving and emotionally powerful experiences — ones that take the person into nature and help them gain insights in a new way,” said Cassandra Loch, LCSW, President of Program Operations for Elements Behavioral Health. “Clients who are emotionally blocked or have not benefitted from talk therapies begin to understand their past traumas and make their way to recovery.” With nearly 40 years of collective experience, The Ranch treatment centers provide evidence-based therapeutic programs that address the underlying causes of trauma, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, sexual addiction and other self-defeating behaviors. We offer innovative therapies that delve into the deep issues that thwart recovery, allowing clients to heal mind, body and spirit while learning personal accountability. At each of its locations in Tennessee, Mississippi and Pennsylvania, The Ranch offers comprehensive care that allows each client to anchor new recovery behaviors needed for lasting change. For more information about The Ranch treatment centers, call (855) 893-5987 or visit http://www.recoveryranch.com. The Ranch is a member of Elements Behavioral Health, the owner of a nationwide platform of behavioral health programs with over 750 licensed beds throughout nine states. The Elements Behavioral Health® family of programs offers comprehensive, innovative treatment for substance abuse, depression and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, trauma, sexual addiction, and other mental health disorders. Through its programs, the company is committed to delivering evidence-based, clinically sophisticated treatment that promotes permanent lifestyle change, not only for the patient but for the entire family network.

Standard digestion and multielement methods were tested for routine application to analyze selected elements of low bioactivity (Sc, Y, La, Ce, Rb, Cs and Ti) in food and plant samples by ICP-OES and ICP-MS methods. For ICP-OES, medium power input resulted in better detection limits than high power. Sc and Ti seemed more reliable from the ICP-OES, but it was not sensitive enough to detect Y, La, Ce and Cs in a biomatrix at ambient levels. Small Rb concentrations were occasionally swallowed by a U-shaped background. The ICP-MS as the more sensitive method was preferable for the analysis of Y, La, Ce, Rb and Cs, using In-115 as an internal standard. Digests of green plants, feed and cheese samples were tested for recoveries of 2 μg and 4 μg each. The classical HNO 3-HClO 4 digestion in glass cannot be recommended for these elements. Quantitative recoveries of Y, La, Sc, Ce and Ti were obtained from microwave assisted digestions with HNO 3-HF in pressure bombs; whereas green plants needed some hydrofluoric acid, this was not the case for the cheese samples. Storing the fluoride containing digests in glass yielded significant blanks. The microwave assisted digest with KClO 3-HNO 3 yielded good recoveries of all these elements from green plants and cheese, but suffered from Rb-blanks. Recently obtained data for green plants, cheese and chocolates are given, and compared with older unpublished data from Austrian coals.
