- 7I have started working on Haloxylon salicornicum, but after germination seedlings do not survive. what may be the reason for that?
I have sown seeds of H.Salicornicum, the seeds also germinated, but after germination seedlings do not survive. What may be the reason for that? We are giving 25 degree celsius temperature and 16 hrs light period.
If seedlings are grown in small pots in soil culture and after seed germination, sometimes covering them up with cellophane etc. would provide sufficient humidity around them to avoid dessciation. Then gradually by puncturing holes in the transparent covering could allow them to gradually acclimate and establish in ambient conditions. Also plants such as Haloxylon and Salsola appear to be xero-halophytic, so too much water in soil could be harmful. Best of luck.Following
- NewCan you sujest articles on the subject of Ipisoft Mocap error rate, freedom degrees and motion tracking algoritms
Hello, I´m working in offline motion capture algorithm from Kinect Depth Images. My research will be applied to postural, gait and others movements analysis and I need it to be as accurate as possible. I find out that Ipisoft is a berry used software to process depth maps in general and can create mocap from it. So i´am asking if anyone knows an article where i can find about the algorithms in IPIsoft and their accuracy. GreetingsFollowing

- 4Can any one let me know the zero sequence current flow for all connections of transformers?
zero sequence current flow with derivation for these transformer connections
YnyN , Yd orDy , ZNyN , YNyNd, YNdd, YautoN , YautoNd
please let me know or let me know which book i am supposed to refer
In delta connected winding of the transformer, zero sequence currents flow in circulating manner that is way shunt path b/w the line and neutral will be established in circuit connection where as series path will be considered in star connection.
i.e,assuming series and shunt switches on both sides of the transformer, for delta, corresponding shunt switch is to be closed, whereas for star, corresponding series switch is to be closed. It is well explained in Electrical Power Systems by C.L.Wadhwa.Following
- 5How to relate 1) life values and 2) hope and spirituality?
Currently I am working on a review about life values of elderly people suffering from incurable cancer. From the literature, values like honesty, continuity, dignity and the like came up. Obviously to me, they are life values. Besides these concepts, two other concepts arose: hope and spirituality. Both important of course, but I don’t know how to integrate them and link them to life values. Are they in some way a source of which life values derive, sources of nurturing life values or life values in themselves? I can't get my head around it.
Does somebody have any ideas on how: to relate life values on the one hand and hope and spirituality on the other? Or does anybody have suggestions for literature about this?
Dear Anne Ebenau,
Spirituality the problem arises in the conditions of formation of any society. Nowadays, the term "spirituality" is considered by researchers is much broader than the "religious" as a spiritual man is able to shape the world and within the secular system.
The process of spiritual knowledge is associated with significant systemic comprehension in all spheres of culture and science, and philosophy, and in education, research institutes, and religions, and the arts.
- 6What causes osteoporosis? What is the mechanism of bone loss?
Is there any relation between age, food habits, hormones, physical activity? Bone remodeling is a complex process and it depends on so many things, so what is the exact cause of it? Please help to understand it deeply.
Yes, that is true, on the loss of calcium in the menstrual cycle, but now we are seeing many males with significant if not severe bone loss. The high fructose soft drinks combined with high levels of caffeine and the toxicity and adrenal drain caused therefrom is taking its toll on the entire population. Bone loss is just one of the consequences of the negative trends in dietary habits of our population--loss of cartilaginous tissues, metabolic dysfunction and imbalances, and neuropathic damage is rendering a nation under seige in chronic disease.Following
- 2How to prepare curdlan containing agar plates for screening of 1,3- beta glucanase?
I have prepared curdlan (0.5%) containing screening media for screening endo beta- 1,3- glucanase producing Streptomyces colonies. It was prepared by dissolving 0.5gm curdlan (from Sigma) in 0.1N NaOH and then mixed with other media components (yeast extract, peptone, MgCl2.7H2O, KH2PO4, agar) and autoclaved. After autoclaving curdlan showed discoloration (from curdy white to pale brown) and also formed jelly clumps so that uniform spreading of the agar media in the plates was difficult. Kindly suggest any measures to overcome this.

how to find diffrent switching angleby using PSO and GA. if have any idea of matlab programme.
There are ways to eliminate the supply frequency or frequency components that have a dominant effect on the signal. This can be achieved using a tracking algorithm like Kalman filter. Some more details are required about your application and why you want to use heuristic based optimizers for your problem.Following

- 1Friction Stir Welding simulation in Abaqus?
I have developed a model in Abaqus which includes a rotating tool (Lagrangian part, modeled as a rigid body) a workpiece modeled as an eulerian part with Johnson-Cook constitutive model, discrete field with a volume fraction tool, and a backing plate modeled as a lagrangian part (linear elastic).
As far as I know, the contact between lagrangian and eulerian parts is modeled as a general contact, but when two different such types of contact have to be specified in the same assembly, the definition of two types of general contact is not allowed (in Abaqus/CAE).
I would like to ask you, how is the contact between Eulerian and Lagrangian parts modeled in Dynamic Temperature-displacement analysis in Abaqus/Explicit? What are the available options?
Thank you very much in advance for your response.

- 5How to calculate the RR and 95% CI on different reference groups?
I want to make a meta-ananlysis. But the arcticles I identified reported RR based on different references. Some use the lowest one, some use hightest one. I want to unify all resules using highest group as reference.
For example: there are 4 gruops originally,
lowest group : RR 1(REF.)
2nd group : RR 0.98(0.78-1.25)
3rd gorup: RR 0.82(0.75-1.29)
hightest group:RR 0.76(0.56-1.36)
Now ,how to calculate the RR, especially 95% CI, of each group if the reference is hightest gorup?
Look forward for anyone's reply!
PS: V is total variance. Because you have the results, HR and 95% CI for B vs A and C vs A, you want find HR B vs C, you don't need know V.Following
