The dataset is related to linear rock cutting experiments on concrete samples that consisted of different concrete mixtures. It is a supplement to scoping study using a procedural evaluation routine to analyse cutting Force Component Ratios (FCR) that could be used for the identification of changing mechanical rock properties during mechanical excavation. It focuses on the use of FCR in conjunction with point attack picks. The cutting depth and the spacing-to-depth ratio were varied at three levels each. 6, 8 and 12 mm for cutting depth (Coded as DZ in Dataset), the spacing ration at levels of 2, 3 and 4. In the dataset, the resulting spacing is stored as DY. Two artificial rock samples were tested. The samples were composed of two respective three different zones of concrete. The first block’s zones had a nominal cubic Uniaxial Compressive Strength (UCS) of 85 MPa (Zone 3) and 45 MPa (Zone 2). The zones of the second block were 85 (Zone 3), 45 (Zone 2) and 25 MPa (Zone 1). For each combination of cutting parameters, a whole layer of a specimen was cut in such a way that each cut groove crossed the different zones. In total, 414 single cuts were conducted to achieve reliable results. A procedural evaluation process was developed to assess the potential of Force Compononent Ratios for material differenciation based on statistical descriptors. The descriptors used where: arithmetic mean, geometric mean, median, interquartile range, 0.95-quantile, variance coefficient. A classification algorithm implemented in R was utilized to classify all combinations of statistical descriptors and Force Component Ratio. In total 72, combinations of Force Component Ratio and statistical descriptor were classified, 9 combinations were classified as suitable, 10 as partially suitable and the rest as unsuitable. The results imply that an FCR material differenciation based an raw cutting force measurements could be a tool for material diferenciation during mechanical excavation

The present study The evidence reported above supports the notion that social support both directly affects the relapse tendency of women experiencing heroin addiction, but also may have an indirect impact through the active coping strategies. In addition, the role of social support may also be moderated by openness to experience. Further, previous studies of heroin addiction found that the age of addict and their parents' level of education level were significantly correlated with their rates of heroin abuse (Aggarwal et al., 2015; Kolodny et al., 2015). Therefore, it is necessary to control for these factors in the present study. Based on the above analysis, this study proposes the hypotheses listed here and summarized in the model in Fig. 1. (1) Active coping strategies would mediate the relationship between social support and the relapse tendency. (2) Openness to experience would moderate the relationships between social support and active coping strategies, and between social support and the relapse tendency. (3) Openness to experience would moderate the mediating effect of active coping strategies in the relationship between social support and the relapse tendency. Statistical analyses Descriptive analyses and Pearson’s correlations were used by SPSS 22.0 for all variables. To test the moderated mediation model, we have adopted Stride's advice, and constructs are measured by latent variables as opposed to observed variables (Stride, Gardner, Catley, & Thomas, 2015). The analysis process of the entire model corresponds to the SPSS macro PROCESS (http://www.afhayes.com) suggested by Hayes (2018) but applying Mplus 7.4. The mediating (indirect) effect with 5000 bootstrap samples. In order to better reveal the relationship between latent variables, we used the item parceling strategy (Hall, Snell, & Foust, 1999; Little, Cunningham, Shahar, & Widaman, 2002). The critical value of the statistical test includes p value under the standard 0.05 level, and 95% bias-correction bootstrap confidence interval.

Dexamethasone is frequently administered to surgical patients for anti-emetic prophylaxis. We have examined the early in-vivo effects of dexamethasone (8 mg) to demonstrate the magnitude and temporal nature of immune-modulatory effects in circulating peripheral blood mononuclear cells in 10 healthy male volunteers. Blood samples were drawn at baseline, 2 h, 4 h and 24 h. Immune cell phenotypes were examined with flow cytometry, and we have already reported reductions in classical and intermediate monocytes and dendritic cells early after dexamethasone administration, followed by an increase in the level of these populations at 24 h. We also observed a profound reduction in the expression strength of the maturation marker, HLA-DR at 24 h in all monocyte subsets and dendritic cells. This study confirmed rapid transient effects of 8 mg dexamethasone on innate immune cells. We have now also evaluated the expression strength of additional markers involved in immune activation and immunosuppression as well as maturation, migration, cell death and responsiveness to signalling. Similar to the previously described surface markers, also these were profoundly affected by dexamethasone either at the early (2 h or 4 h) or later stage (24 h) after dexamethasone administration. Thereby these data improve our understanding of the immune-modulatory effects of the glucocorticoid dexamethasone in-vivo, which may be important for the optimisation of treatment regimens as well as the evaluation of new indications for glucocorticoid treatment.

Sharp ended α-Fe core microwire covered with PrDyFeCoB amorphous shell with enhanced stray magnetic field is proposed for magnetic tweezers, stepwise switchable in external homogeneous magnetic field. Four stable magnetic states of the microwire, controlled by external magnetic field, were determined by magneto-optical Kerr effect (MOKE) microscopy. Distribution of the stray field near the microwire tip was plotted by magneto-optical indicator film (MOIF) technique. Large gradient of the stray magnetic field in the vicinity of the microwire tip is quite enough to provide magnetic force ~ 2000 pN, well enough for capturing of the PrDyFeCoB microparticle. Significance of the obtained results is in switching of the focused stray field of the microwire under external homogeneous magnetic field. This provides simple way of stepwise attaching-detaching of microparticles without electromagnetic micro coils.

This is data collected on the nutritional status of non-academic staff of the Tamale Campus of University for Development Studies, Tamale - Ghana Interviews were conducted on staff nutrition and their dietary practices using questionnaires. Weight and height measurements were taken for anthropometric data of respondents to assess their nutritional status. Participants were also asked through the questionnaire, to indicate all foods and drinks that were consumed over the previous 24 hours whether at home or outside the home. As part of data collection, a table was created with various food groups and participants indicated which foods they consumed. The data should be interpreted taken into cognisance that these staff are at a higher institution of learning. The hypothesis was that poor nutrition knowledge result in poor dietary practices and nutritional status.

The main goal of this work was to estimate genetic parameters, environmental x genotype interaction and genetic gain on selection in two progeny tests of Cordia trichotoma. The experimental design was lead in randomized complete block, one tree plot with 40 and 34 replicates, 3.0x 3.0 m spacing between C. trichotoma and Dalbergia nigra and 6.0 x 6.0 m between C. trichotoma plants. C. trichotoma progenies, in a total of 30, were consorted with 30 Dalbergia nigra progenies o from the same place. The diameter at breath height (1.30 m), plants height, diameter at 30 cm from the soil, first twig height and survival were evaluated. The REML/BLUP method was used. Significant differences (p<0.01) were observed between progenies for the whole quantitative traits.
