Editorial Commentary: Release of the Medial Collateral During Arthroscopic Meniscectomy Should Be Encouraged, Not Feared! In patients having arthroscopic medial meniscectomy, percutaneous pie crust or intra-articular release of the proximal medial collateral ligament is preferable to iatrogenic damage to the cartilage of the medial femoral condyle. In patients with tight medial compartments, release is recommended. Release of the medial collateral ligament during arthroscopic partial medial

164. Pearls and pitfalls of bathing in atopic dermatitis. (PubMed)

Pearls and pitfalls of bathing in atopic dermatitis. The latest guidelines of the American Academy of Dermatology suggest bathing as an advantageous nonpharmacologic intervention for regular skin care of patients with atopic dermatitis. Regular bathing with water can hydrate the skin, remove scale, crust, irritants, and allergens, enhance penetration of topical agents, and potentially reduce bacterial colonization. However, it is still unclear whether the addition of oils, emollients, and other

Macules and papules develop into vesicular lesions in a dermatomal distribution. The location depends on which nerve is involved, but shingles usually occurs on the thorax, with dermatomes T1 to L2 most commonly affected. The vesicles then burst, releasing varicella-zoster virus, and form ulcers and crusts. Note that the rash may be atypical in certain groups of people, for example older

selective pressure and how to take up some yeast from the top of my fermenters without spoiling the beer but that's a work in progress with due date around end of January 2018 when I'll fabricate the kit and fermenters. What I meant to say is that, I will test with yeast based pizza crust but if it's not a success, dry yeast will be fine. They both come from the same family.

172. Neville Goodman’s metaphor watch: Tectonic shifts

in the mantle, cause earthquakes and volcanoes. The idea of these mobile tectonic plates developed during the 1960s, although the term tectonics had already entered geology, referring simply to the structure of the Earth’s crust or changes affecting it. Paradoxically, a tectonic shift occurs very slowly, but the subsequent events can be catastrophically sudden. The geological term has been borrowed by medicine in ophthalmology: it is a form of corneal surgery. And also , as very many terms have been

in women than in men; they are usually in their teens or 20s and consistently deny that the rash is self-induced. The lesions, which can take any form (erythema, swelling, blisters, denuded areas, crusts, cuts, burns, and scars), are generally of a bizarre shape, with irregular outlines, well demarcated from the surrounding normal skin. When I searched PubMed for “artificial”, even restricting occurrences to the titles of papers, I got nearly 40 000 hits. It appears that there is little that cannot

was “inflicted” on us over 4 billion years ago when it became the third most common element in the Earth’s crust. That “peck of dirt” is scarcely all silica; a lot of it is clay: various hydrated silicates of–you guessed it– aluminum (Shock! Gasp!) That doesn’t even count all the aluminum in the dust you breathe in with every lungful of air or the clay minerals that go (as the antivaxers love to say) “straight into your bloodstream” every time you skin your knee. (Of course, vaccines don’t “go straight (...) a Biologist (University of Stirling) with a PhD in the ecotoxicology of aluminium (University of Stirling). My research career ( 1984-present ) has focussed upon an intriguing paradox; ‘how come the third most abundant element of the Earth’s crust (aluminium) is non-essential and largely inimcal [ sic ] to life’. Investigating this mystery has required research in myriad fields from the basic inorganic chemistry of the reaction of aluminium and silicon to the potentially complex biological availability

178. Organic compounds in fluid inclusions of Archean quartz-Analogues of prebiotic chemistry on early Earth. (PubMed)

Organic compounds in fluid inclusions of Archean quartz-Analogues of prebiotic chemistry on early Earth. The origin of life is still an unsolved mystery in science. Hypothetically, prebiotic chemistry and the formation of protocells may have evolved in the hydrothermal environment of tectonic fault zones in the upper continental crust, an environment where sensitive molecules are protected against degradation induced e.g. by UV radiation. The composition of fluid inclusions in minerals (...) have been formed by hydrothermal processes. Stable-isotope analysis confirms that the methane found in the inclusions has most likely been formed from abiotic sources by hydrothermal chemistry. Obviously, the liquid phase in the continental Archean crust provided an interesting choice of functional organic molecules. We conclude that organic substances such as these could have made an important contribution to prebiotic chemistry which might eventually have led to the formation of living cells.

179. Average Distance to the Nearest Forest is Increasing with Forest Loss in the US

, which gives the initial forest state. Example B and D show “aggregated attrition” or the loss of complete intact sections—say, you have a large pizza and someone grabbed a giant slice out of it. Examples C and E show equal decreases in area as B and D, but are more random—the term used here is “dispersed attrition.” Think more like one of those thin crust pizzas where you can grab pieces out of the middle. Figure One, from Yang and Mountrakis (2017). Case (a) shows the initial forest state followed (...) importance in land use and land cover change studies. And if you want to stick with that ill-advised pizza metaphor, imagine someone who only eats crusts or just takes bites out of random pieces and puts them back. Hopefully no one eats pizza like that, though. Ugh. Yang and Mountrakis delve into the connection between forest cover and forest attrition. They find a non-linear relationship where initially, as forest cover decreases, forest attrition increases slowly. As forest cover decreases past
