... Emerald Basin on the Scotia Shelf off Nova Scotia, Canada, is home to a globally unique population of the glass sponge Vazella pourtalesi. Through the analysis of both in situ photographs and trawl catch data from annual multispecies bottom-trawl surveys, we examined community composition, species density, and abundance of epibenthos and fish associated with V. pourtalesi compared to locations without this sponge. Using generalized linear models and analysis of similarities, the importance of V. pourtalesi in enhancing species density and abundance of the associated epibenthic community was assessed against that of the hard substrate on which it settles. Our results indicated that the megafaunal assemblage associated with V. pourtalesi was significantly different in composition and higher in species density and abundance compared to locations without V. pourtalesi. Analysis of similarity of trawl catch data indicated that fish communities associated with the sponge grounds are significantly different from those without V. pourtalesi, although no species were found exclusively on the sponge grounds. Our study provides further evidence of the role played by sponge grounds in shaping community structure and biodiversity of associated deep-sea epibenthic and fish communities. The mechanism for biodiversity enhancement within the sponge grounds formed by V. pourtalesi is likely the combined effect of both the sponge itself and its attachment substrate, which together comprise the habitat of the sponge grounds. We also discuss the role of habitat provision between the mixed-species tetractinellid sponges of the Flemish Cap and the monospecific glass sponge grounds of Emerald Basin.

... This study was conducted to explore the utility of porous embolic microspheres in transarterial embolisation (TACE) with drug-eluting embolic particles. New indented particles porous particles were found, and these show properties which are attractive for further exploration regarding widening of the clinical scope of the TACE technique .

... Data used to generate figures of the paper “Combination of the natural product capsaicin and docetaxel synergistically kills human prostate cancer cells through the metabolic regulator AMP-activated kinase” Sánchez BG, Bort A, Mateos-Gómez PA, Rodríguez-Henche N, Díaz-Laviada I. Cancer Cell Int. 2019 Mar 8;19:54. doi: 10.1186/s12935-019-0769-2. eCollection 2019. In this study we demonstrate that the spicy ingredient of peepers, capsaicin, sensitizes prostate cancer cell to docetaxel. The metabolic regulator AMPK plays a pivotal role.

... Golden Software Inc. included the method of cokriging in the newest version of SURFER 17. This has opened a new tool for interpreting geochemical data. We can use cokriging in SURFER 17 to improve the quality of maps and to predict similar targets in nearby areas. We use cokriging when we want to process data from different datasets. One dataset is always smaller than the other. Here, I first tasted the method with a hypothetical geochemical model combining a smaller dataset of FA gold results with a larger dataset of ICP-MS multi-elements. Later, I applied this method to real data from a soil sampling project in Mozambique. I tested a known mineralized target and also an extended area to predict gold targets. I also had the gold results for the extended area. They allowed me to confirm the effectiveness of cokriging in predicting the new targets. There are many opportunities where we can apply cokriging as a prediction tool. One situation is when an initial sampling returned a group of interesting but isolated gold results. We can then use a cheaper method, like ICP-MS, to better understand the gold distribution in the area.
