Hi!!
I have created a graph about the immune response in healthy and AD skin for S. aureus.
Could I please ask if it should be a table or a figure?
Does the pathway look correct?
Shall I make it more simple? Thank you!

Answer
If you want to learn particulars regarding treatment of Quakers, you should be able to locate letters and minutes from their “meetings”. I have seen documents of Quakers in VA, but mostly studied those in NC - many fled there due to persecution in Va. Guilford College, NC (Quaker College) has an archive you might wish to check out.

Question

We live in suburban Northern Virginia in a townhouse, but there are many trees, and a path around a nearby artificial lake, so we get a variety of birds. 
The stocky bird with the owl-like face appeared in the winter, on our next-door neighbor's front deck fence, and looking at bird books, I tentatively identified it as a Broad-winged Hawk. 
The thinner bird, for which there are two pictures here, appeared Wednesday, September 12, 2018, on our front deck fence - my wife (again!) spotting it - and I just took pictures through the sliding glass door.  I have taken and have been given guesses as to what it is, including a couple of people who thought it might be a Cooper's Hawk.  In a couple of books I checked, it looked more like a Sharp-shinned Hawk, it seemed to me, which is about the right size, but one of the books noted that the Cooper's Hawk has a yellow cere, and you can see that in one of the two pictures of that bird here.  Since it is small for a Cooper's Hawk, perhaps it is a young one? 
Illustrations in bird books often look different to me, for the same species, from one book to another.
Would some of you birders out there please identify these two by species, gender, and adult v juvenile?  Also, if you could give me some instructions as to how to identify these birds, that would be very helpful.
Thank you.

Actually, James, once fledged, so-called "juvenile" (ie. not in their adult plumage yet) birds are pretty much the same size as "adults".

Hi,
I have been searching the literature to find the percentage of similarity of the whole genome of S.aureus and S.epidermidis.
Would you know any papers that state this?
Thank you in advance!
Kind regards,
Virginia

Answer
The paper by Meric et al.
performed a nice analysis of divergence in the sequences of core genes (2,066,448 bp) shared between S. aureus and S. epidermis.

We are in Northern Virginia, USA, and have downy woodpeckers, red-bellied woodpeckers, robins, cardinals, blue birds, bluejays, nuthatches, juncos, chicadees, house and apparently other sparrows, house finches, goldfinches, titmice, doves, and water birds from a nearby artificial lake. We've seen a hawk, and a vulture. So that is the environment here: semi-wooded with a small, nearby lake. There seem to be a variety of sparrows, or similar size birds here. There are three pictures attached which I would appreciate having someone identify. They may be very common birds, but I am not that knowledgeable, and the pictures in my bird books do not always clear things up for me. Thank you.

Diethylamine (DEA) reacts with l-bromobutane (BB) to form diethylbutylamine (DEBA) From the data given below (provided by N. Leininger, Univ. of Virginia), find the effect of solvent on the second-order rate constant.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Winton,
Rate of reaction in acetonitrile is more than that in diol, because acetoniltrile is polar solvent and has ability to stabilize the transtion state which result in acceleration of reaction while diol is hydrogen bond donor solvent (HBD), has ability to form hydrogen bonding with nitrogen lone pair which reduce the nucleophilicity of amine therefore the rate is very slow.
read my published papers posted in research gate for more information. Good Luck

Question

The use of analytic bearing solutions became obsolete in the 1970's with the rapid progress of computer speeds. This is no longer being attempted in academic research and has little place in industry. GE, for example, had state of the art computer programs for multi lobed and tilting pad bearings developed in their research center. All this capability seems to have been lost when they shut down their research facility.
I would like to see what type of bearings you are attempting to compute.
Analytic solutions can not handle fluid film bearings when heat transfer and turbulent flow conditions are assumed. The computer speeds and codes have progressed to the point that we can compute the instantaneous bearing forces for direct application to nonlinear time transient rotor studies. This is required for high speed turbochargers and aircraft squeeze film dampers.

Relevant answer
Answer
Your statement is incorrect that analytic solutions are faster and simpler than FEA solutions. You apparently have never worked in the real world of the analysis of multistage compressors in tilting pad bearings supported on nonlinear squeeze film dampers under large whirl orbits excited by aerodynamic cross coupling effects.
To view and download papers on modern rotor-bearing dynamics presentations please review our papers on our web site at www.rodyn.com. Please also feel free to send me any of your analytic papers on bearing or rotor dynamic analysis.
Analytic solutions were most useful when I was teaching fundamentals of dynamics of machinery and fluid film bearings.
However, in the real world of high speed turbines, compressors and highly nonlinear turbochargers, analytic solutions has little role outside of the class room.

Hello every researcher,
Does anybody have experience with western blot of PBMC´s proteins?
I already tried with beta-actin, alpha-tubulin and GAPDH, but I'm not sure how stable are the expressions of these proteins so they may not be good load controls.
Thanks in advance,
Virginia
Relevant answer
In my experiment with PBMC, both GAPDH and B-actin works fine.

We are trying to learn more about any kind of species interactions (competition, predation, disease transmission etc.) between native and non-native (invasive) crayfish in the eastern United States. We are designing some laboratory and field experiments to assess the potential impacts of invasive on natives (focusing on Virginia), so any additional information would help us do a better job with new research program in my lab. Thanks.
Relevant answer
Answer
I would contact your local Army Corps of Engineers Biologist. The Corps do regular biodiversity assessments of the properties they manage, which includes a lot of streams and marshlands. They will sometimes even do complete watershed assessments. They would likely be able to tell you if they have seen any invasions and resultant changes in species profiles. That could give you an idea of relative competitive fitness. It wouldn't be a published study or experimental results, but could lend itself to some important observations.
