The Estimated Economic Impact of Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin on New York Dairy Farms for the Years 2994 through 1997
Data from New York dairy farms for the years 1994 through 1997 were used to estimate whether recombinant bovine Somatotropin (rbST) generated profits for adopters. Results show that the estimated profit impact of rbST, ...
What treatments are safe and effective for mild to moderate hypertension in pregnancy?

There is considerable debate concerning the treatment of mild to moderate essential hypertension during pregnancy. Evidence suggests that because of the potential risk of fetal intrauterine growth restriction, treatment ...
Using the monthly classification of global SSTs and 500 HPA height to predict temperature and precipitation regimes one to two season in advance for the Mid-Mississippi Region
(National Weather Association, 2008-07)
Using the results from previous studies of the interannual variability of local mean monthly temperature and precipitation by this group, long range forecasts were generated for summer and winter season temperatures and ...
Regulation of rbST in the US
In the United States (US) and European Union (EU) the regulatory and commercialization process for recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) had widely differing outcomes. Although the regulatory process in both locations was ...

Interannual and interdecadal variability in the predominant Pacific region SST anomaly patterns and their impact on climate in the mid-Mississippi valley region
(Centro Ciencias Atmosfera UNAM, 2007-02)
Previous research has demonstrated that Pacific Region SSTs and SST anomalies can be separated into seven general synoptic classifications (“clusters”) (A-G). Clusters B and G (C, D, and F) [A and E] were shown to be ...
Post-Newtonian Reference Frames for Advanced Theory of the Lunar Motion and a New Generation of Lunar Laser Ranging
We construct a set of post-Newtonian reference frames for a comprehensive study of the orbital dynamics and rotational motion of Moon and Earth by means of lunar laser ranging (LLR) with the precision of one millimeter. ...
