  • The salvo combat model with area fire 

    Armstrong, Michael John (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2013-12)
    This paper analyzes versions of the salvo model of missile combat where area fire is used by one or both sides in a battle. While these models share some properties with the area fire Lanchester model and the aimed fire ...
  • Modeling short-range ballistic missile defense and Israel's Iron Dome system 

    Armstrong, Michael John (Institute for Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS), 2014-09)
    This paper develops a model of short-range ballistic missile defense and uses it to study the performance of Israel’s Iron Dome system. The deterministic base model allows for inaccurate missiles, unsuccessful interceptions, ...
  • Internationalization in German Academic Libraries: Moving beyond North American Perspectives 

    Bordonaro, Karen; Rauchmann, Sabine (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2015-10)

  • Cyclotetrasiloxane Frameworks for the Chemoenzymatic Synthesis of Oligoesters 

    Zelisko, Paul M; Frampton, Mark B.; Jones, Tim RB (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-11-28)
    Immobilized lipase B from Candida antarctica (Novozym® 435, N435) was utilized as part of a chemoenzymatic strategy for the synthesis of branched polyesters based on a cyclotetrasiloxane core in the absence of solvent. ...
  • Do Neuro-Muscular Adaptations Occur in Endurance-Trained Boys and Men? 

    Cohen, Rotem; Mitchell, Cam; Dotan, Raffy; Gabriel, David; Klentrou, Panagiota; Falk, Baraket (2010)
    Most research on the effects of endurance training has focused on endurance training's health-related benefits and metabolic effects in both children and adults. The purpose of this study was to examine the neuromuscular ...
  • Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Position Paper: Resistance Training in Children and Adolescents 

    Behm, David G.; Faigenbaum, Avery D.; Falk, Baraket; Klentrou, Panagiota (2008)
    Many position stands and review papers have refuted the myths associated with resistance training (RT) in children and adolescents. With proper training methods, RT for children and adolescents can be relatively safe and ...
  • The Clinical Translation Gap in Child Health Exercise Research: A Call for Disruptive Innovation 

    Ashish, Naveen; Bamman, Marcas; Cerny, Frank; Cooper, Dan; d'Memecourt, Pierre; Eisenmann, Joey; Ericson, Dawn; Fahey, John; Falk, Baraket; Gabriel, Davera; Kahn, Michael; Kemper, Han; Leu, Szu-Yun; McMurray, Robert; Nixon, Patricia; Olin, J; Pianosi, Paolo; Purucker, Mary; Radom-Aizik, Shlomit; Taylor, Amy (Wiley, 2015-02)
    In children, levels of play, physical activity, and fitness are key indicators of health and disease and closely tied to optimal growth and development. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides clinicians with ...
  • The electromyographic threshold in boys and men 

    Pitt, Brynlynn; Dotan, Raffy; Millar, Jordan; Long, Devon; Tokuno, Craig; O'Brien, Thomas (Springer, 2015-01-15)
    Abstract Background Children have been shown to have higher lactate (LaTh) and ventilatory (VeTh) thresholds than adults, which might be explained by lower levels of type-II motor-unit (MU) recruitment. However, the ...
  • The perfect space: classroom environments and learning outcomes 

    Yates, Elizabeth; Cotton, Justine (2015-01-27)
    What impact does a classroom space have on learning outcomes for students? Does a perfect library teaching space exist? This presentation highlights the findings of a 2014 survey of teaching librarians and library staff ...
  • Higher PLIN5 but not PLIN3 content in isolated skeletal muscle mitochondria following acute in vivo contraction in rat hindlimb 

    Ramos, Sofhia; MacPherson, Rebecca E. K.; Turnbull, Patrick C; Bott, Kirsten N.; LeBlanc, Paul; Ward, Wendy E.; Peters, Sandra J. (American Physiological Society, 2014-08-22)
    Contraction-mediated lipolysis increases the association of lipid droplets and mitochondria, indicating an important role in the passage of fatty acids from lipid droplets to mitochondria in skeletal muscle. PLIN3 and PLIN5 ...
  • Does bracing affect bone health in women with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis? 

    Akseer, Nasreen; Kish, Kimberly; Rigby, W Alan; Greenway, Matthew; Klentrou, Panagiota; Wilson, Philip M; Falk, Bareket (BioMed Central, 2015)
    Purpose: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is often associated with low bone mineral content and density (BMC, BMD). Bracing, used to manage spine curvature, may interfere with the growth-related BMC accrual, resulting ...
  • Cell-selective modulation of the Drosophila neuromuscular system by a neuropeptide 

    Ormerod, Kiel G.; Krans, Jacob L.; Mercier, Joffre (2015-03)
    Neuropeptides can modulate physiological properties of neurons in a cell-specific manner. The present work examines whether a neuropeptide can also modulate muscle tissue in a cell-specific manner, using identified muscle ...
  • The action of octopamine on muscles of Drosophila melanogaster larvae 

    Ormerod, Kiel G; Hadden, Julia K; Lylah D, Deady; Joffre, Mercier; Jacob, Krans (2012-10)
    Octopamine (OA) and tyramine (TA) play important roles in homeostatic mechanisms, behavior, and modulation of neuromuscular junctions in arthropods. However, direct actions of these amines on muscle force production that ...
  • Structure-function relationships of tachykinin peptides from octopus venoms
