This xlsx file contains the cadastre of Combined Heat and Power (CHP) installations of Chile in the year 2018 as well as the data used for the figures of the paper "Unveiling the potential for combined heat an d power in Chilean industry - A policy perspective" published in the Journal Energy Policy. The sheet "CHP_cadastre_2018" includes a list of 55 CHP installations and 19 attributes for each one of them. Most of the table is self-explanatory and the only acronyms in use are NCRES (non-conventional renewable energies), PMGD (From “Small Distributed Generation Means” in Spanish) and MGNC (from “Non-Conventional Renewable Generation Means” in Spanish) . Please consider that non-standard symbols are in use in the names of the installations and companies (these were kept in their original form in Spanish) and that decimals are separated with commas. For further details about sources, methodology and context please refer to the paper. The sheets “Evolution” ,“Policy” and “Potential” contain the underlying data of Figures 3, 4, 6 and 7 of the paper respectively. The sheet "Sector" presents the Table 1 of the paper.

Data was acquired to investigate the effects of morphine withdrawal in rats, both in the brain neurochemistry and ultrasonic vocalisation. To this end, a following experiment was performed. 38 adult male Sprague–Dawley rats were used in the experiment, divided into four groups: Saline-Control (10), Morphine-Control (9), Saline-Withdrawal (10) and Morphine-Withdrawal (9). Morphine in dose 10.0 mg/kg (s.c.) was administered repeatedly to the morphine groups over a 14 day period; saline solution was administered repeatedly (1.0 ml/kg) to other groups in the same manner. Administration was performed in testing cages in a group of four animals. The testing room was situated in a remote part of the laboratory, and significantly different than home cage room, both in the lighting conditions and in the arrangement of spatial cues, which were constant throughout the whole experiment. All animals were kept for 30 min in the testing box after each saline or morphine injection. On day 14, Morph-Control group and control Saline-Control group were exposed to the context of drug administration, and the ultrasonic vocalizations were recorded for 20 min. Withdrawal groups, 30 min after last injection, were left undisturbed (in their home cages), whilst they were subjected to 2-week withdrawal period. On day 28, the rats were re-exposed to the context of morphine/saline administration and ultrasonic vocalization was recorded. Each rat was immediately decapitated after USVs recording session, and its brain tissues were frozen. The USVs were recorded individually for each rat, in a dark room with dim red light. USV recordings were processed using a proprietary RatRec Pro software; individual calls were extracted and counted. All identified episodes were of the "50 kHz appetitive" class, no "aversive 22 kHz" alarm calls were recorded. For each rat, tissue samples of 6 brain structures were extracted: medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), nucleus accumbens (NAcc), striatum (Cpu), hippocampus (Hipp), amygdala and ventral tegmental area (VTA). In each sample, levels of 15 compounds were measured: norepinephrine (NA), 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylglycol (MHPG), 3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetic acid (DOPAC), dopamine (DA), 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA), homovanillic acid (HVA), serotonin (5-HT), 3-methoxytyramine (3-MT), taurine, glutamine (Gln), glycine (Gly), aspartic acid (Asp), glutamic acid (Glu), alanine (Ala) and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).

Background Quality improvement in Healthcare is the new fashion actually. Rich countries and developing countries alike are trying to implement quality improvement initiatives to improve their performance and the quality of care. There is evidence in the scientific literature that the existence of a “champion” can play an important role in the successful implementation of quality improvement strategies. Most of the time, people get stuck at the implementation level: they know what to do but they fail to execute it in the organizational setting. That’s where a champion can be useful to facilitate the success of the change. There is a paucity of research on the link between the champion and the implementation of quality improvement programs. The aim of the study was to investigate the perceptions of stakeholders about the characteristics and qualities of the champion that could facilitate the successful implementation of quality improvement programs in health care settings in Haiti. Data collection We used a semi-structured interview guide and a small group discussion guide. Most of the interviews were face to face and were conducted between April and September 2019. Respondents were interviewed about their experience with a champion, their ideas on the qualities and characteristics of successful champions, and what obstacles can prevent them from succeeding in their efforts to facilitate positive change. Most interviews were conducted in Haitian Creole or French by trained qualitative researchers. One interview was conducted in English. Most of the material was audio-recorded and transcribed for analysis, except for one semi-structured interview and the small group discussions, as some participants were not comfortable with the recording. Data analysis We applied a grounded theory approach with Atlas-ti software for the data analysis and interpretation. We predefined two codes that capture the facilitators and the obstacles linked to the champions’ success. All 21 transcripts were revised and compared using the constant comparison method. Then, we considered the themes that emerged from the data (taking into account each category) according to the core meaning of participants. The themes were reviewed several times to make sure they are accurate and grounded in the data. Those data could help you to get a better understanding of the quality and the characteristics of the champions that play a critical role in the implementation of quality improvement programs. The data are transcripts of interviews with stakeholders in the health facilities. In the articles, we extract some quotes from the data in order to illustrate some findings. But the raw data provide more information about the topics of champions and quality improvement.

In computer security, network botnets still represent a major cyber threat. Concealing techniques such as the dynamic addressing and the Domain Name Generation Algorithms (DGAs) require an improved and more effective detection process. To this extent, this data descriptor presents a collection of over 30 million manually-labelled algorithmically generated domain names decorated with a feature set ready-to-use for Machine Learning analysis. This proposed data set enables researchers to move forward the data collection, organization and pre-processing phases, eventually enabling them to focus on the analysis and the production of Machine-Learning powered solutions for network intrusion detection. To be as exhaustive as possible, 50 among the most important malware variants have been selected. Each family is available both as list of domains and as collection of features. To be more precise, the former is generated by executing the malware DGAs in a controlled environment with fixed parameters, while the latter is generated by extracting a combination of statistical and Natural Language Processing (NLP) metrics.

In this research we aimed to investigate the correlation between the prolactin hormone level and damage to hippocampus tissue in experimental epilepsy model. In literature some authors found out that prolactin hormone level increase in epileptic seizures and can be protective in terms of hippocampal damage. 24 wistaria-hannover rat were used for experimental epilepsy model induced with pilocarpine. Prolactin hormone levels were decreased with bromocriptine. We found out that prolactin hormone increased after seizure and it was statistically significant. It was seen that, hemorrhages occurred in surface of the brains in lower prolactin level group, but we couldn't found a statistically significant histologic data for more hippocampal damage. This research can give more reliable and significant results when re-planned with larger sample groups.
