Thoracic auscultatory signs are commonly evaluated as a part of standard diagnostic procedures which might be focused on cardiac (HS) or pulmonary (LS) origin indicators depending on evaluator's aims. However, due similarities of these sounds spectral components and their extremely small intensity especially in the presence of common external noise, a separation of their origin components can be difficult even for an experienced practitioner. This is specially challenging if he/she is presented with prior recordings of these sounds as a part of related auscultatory patient's record review. Differences in periodicity of these cardiac and pulmonary origin sounds assist in qualitative characterization while combined with proposed methods may lead to improved quantitative characterization and origin depended separation of their characteristics. This proposed and verified technique emphasizes initial localization of the HS related components and their subsequent extraction. Though, an examination of both HS and LS components is conducted concurrently as a part of an overall thoracic sounds analysis. In particular, as experimentally optimized, in the case of HS components assessment the Hilbert Transform (HT) is used to detect extreme points; while, in the LS components evaluation Voice Activity Detection techniques (VAD) and the calculation of thresholds of some components of acoustic vectors MFCC, are useful to detect and localize the events of particular examiner's interest. Also the inspiratory and expiratory phases can be differentiated by means of the sixth component of Cepstral Coefficient of Mel Frequency (MFCC). In order to evaluate the efficiency of this technique, it was decided to apply Hidden Markov Models with Mixed Gaussian Models (HMM-GMM). The events extracted from manual and automatic detection were used to calculate HMMGMM models and perform classification. Overall, this approach allows easier detection of any anomalies and their possible origin in complex cardiopulmonary disorders. © 2017 IEEE.

Chickenpox is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (a member of the herpes virus family), which can be spread through the air or by direct contact with an infected person. It produces an itchy, blistery rash that typically lasts about a week and is sometimes accompanied by a fever or other symptoms but primarily manifested by numerous blisters. A single attack of chickenpox almost always brings lifelong immunity against the disease. Safe and effective vaccination represents good protection against chickenpox. The developed algorithm for a quantifiable visual symptoms of varicella evaluation was applied for a comparative assessment of the degree of disease manifestations in two groups of patients. This process demonstrates the levels of vaccination effectiveness and can be applied having images taken under different clinical conditions. This effective technique can be extended to other dermatologic applications with similar visual symptoms. © 2017 IEEE.

The paper summarizes research on the use of intermediate ethanol blends in the U. S. vehicle fleet. Intermediate ethanol blends, fuels with ethanol content above 10%, are just being introduced in the U. S. for use in conventional vehicles. Thirty published studies are covered including the extensive program conducted by the Coordinating Research Council. The individual studies are grouped by vehicle performance aspect: driveability, exhaust emissions, evaporative emissions, flexible-fuel vehicles, onboard diagnostics, and durability of engine, fuel, and emissions control systems. Within each performance aspect, data are examined for common trends and potential fuel impacts. In some cases, results from similar programs are combined and analyzed. A variety of ethanol impacts on vehicle performance and emissions are identified and described. Emphasis is placed on impact areas or potential failure modes that have been identified and tested. Differences in vehicle responses to increasing ethanol content are identified. Some of the studies concluded that intermediate ethanol blends have similar performance to gasoline or low level ethanol blends in a number of areas including short-term driveability and emissions and exhaust catalyst and evaporative control system durability in the post-2001 vehicles tested. However, there are areas where research has identified potential adverse impacts from intermediate ethanol blends including false illumination of Malfunction Indicator Lights and reduced engine and fuel system durability. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Recovery planning for species listed under the U.S. Endangered Species Act has been hampered by a lack of consistency and transparency, which can be improved by implementing a standardized approach for evaluating species status and developing measurable recovery criteria. However, managers lack an assessment method that integrates threat abatement and can be used when demographic data are limited. To help meet these needs, we demonstrated an approach for evaluating species status based on habitat configuration data. We applied 3 established persistence measures (patch occupancy, metapopulation capacity, and proportion of population lost) to compare 2 conservation strategies (critical habitat designated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Forest Service's Carbonate Habitat Management Strategy) and 2 threat scenarios (maximum limestone mining, removal of all habitat in areas with mining claims; minimum mining, removal of habitat only in areas with existing operations and high-quality ore) against a baseline of existing habitat for 3 federally listed plant species. Protecting all area within the designated critical habitat maintained a similar level (83.9-99.9%) of species persistence as the baseline, whereas maximum mining greatly reduced persistence (0.51-38.4% maintained). The 3 persistence measures provided complementary insights reflecting different aspects of habitat availability (total area, number of patches, patch size, and connectivity). These measures can be used to link recovery criteria developed following the 3 R principles (representation, redundancy, and resilience) to the resulting improvements in species viability. By focusing on amount and distribution of habitat, our method provides a means of assessing the status of data-poor species to inform decision making under the Endangered Species Act. © 2016, Society for Conservation Biology.
