Closed circulation loops in historic buildings. Cultural diagnosis as one of the major factors in a contemporary designer’s workshop

deep) had to be covered in layers of Styrofoam in order to produce a flat surface on the façade. In the areas where historic steel balcony balustrades’ were embedded in the external walls, the contractors were requested to cut off side flower baskets, destroying the original design. Analysis of samples of the plaster layers and a thorough search of the colours used for Warsaw’s tenement buildings at the time showed that the original main colour of the façade was light salmon pink stucco. The building’s socle was rather high (140 cm), constructed from an off

A New Technique for The Therapy of Complicated Deep Tissue Infection (with 4 Cases)

the gap of sartorius in right limb. A large amount of pus flowed out, and the body temperature reached 39.5°C. 2.2 Methods A total of 5 self-made double perfusion cannulas were cut into the required lengths and placed at the lowest point of the standing position and the lateral position, while rinsing with normal saline to keep low negative pressure suction. The drainage tube was replaced every 2 days. 2.3 Results On the second day, the patient’s body temperature returned to normal; on the seventh day, the scrotum and the sinus of the sartorius gap

Is carotid stiffness a possible surrogate for stroke in long-term survivors of childhood cancer after neck radiotherapy?

possible screening tools in the future could be PWV, but further research in this field is needed. What is more, even a very low dose of RT can cause atherosclerotic changes, therefore we should change cut-off dose of 40 Gy to a lower one. However, it is beyond dispute that atherogenesis in LTSCC with controlling cardiovascular risk factors can be slowed down. This is very important because it was reported that LTSCC are predisposed to obesity, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and glucose intolerance 16 , 17 , therefore carefully monitoring and correction of the common

Correlation of computed tomography characteristics of cystic renal cell carcinoma with histopathology

cystic RCC lesions were found in our present study. Because of the limited cases of this subtype, this finding may be not be a certain predictor for this subtype’s CT characteristics. Our study has some limitations. First, it is retrospective. Second, we included a small group of patients and there was an inclusion bias. Only 1 chromophobe RCC lesion was found in our study, so our findings may not truly reflect findings for chromophobe RCCs. Third, because of the small number of patients, we did not calculate a precise cut-off value for contrast enhancement to

Missed Opportunities, Good Intentions: The Takings Decisions of Justice Antonin Scalia

’ property has been deprived of its character (and value) as oceanfront property by the State’s artificial creation of an avulsion (i.e. the wall and easement that cuts off waterfront access). Perhaps state-created avulsions ought to be treated differently from other avulsions insofar as the property right to accretion is concerned. But nothing in prior Florida law makes such a distinction, and Martin suggests, if it does not indeed hold, the contrary. Stop The Beach , 560 U.S. at 730–31. Under Justice Scalia’s analysis, the outcome of Stop The Beach therefore does
