Clothing Landmark Detection Using Deep Networks With Prior of Key Point Associations.

This paper considers a problem of landmark point detection in clothes, which is important and valuable for clothing industry. A novel method for landmark localization has been proposed, which is based on a deep end-to-end architecture using prior of key point associations. With the estimated landmark points as input, a deep network has been proposed to predict clothing categories and attributes. A systematic design of the proposed detecting system is implemented by using deep learning techniques and a large...


Predicting dermal exposure to gas-phase semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs): an improved description of SVOC mass transfer between clothing and skin surface lipids.

Dermal exposure to indoor gas-phase semi-volatile organic compounds (SVOCs) has recently received a great deal of attention, and this has included evaluating the role of clothing in this process. Several models have been developed to assess dermal exposure to SVOCs, based on the transient mass transfer of SVOCs from air to dermal capillaries. However, these models assume either that clothing completely retards SVOC transport, or that there is an air gap of constant thickness between the clothing and the sur...

Clothing as a transport vector for airborne particles: Chamber study.

Strong evidence suggests that clothing serves as a reservoir of chemical pollutants and particles, including bioaerosols, which may have health significance. However, little is known about the role that clothing may play as a transport vector for inhaled airborne particles. Here we contribute toward bridging the knowledge gap by conducting experiments to investigate clothing release fraction (CRF), determined as the size-dependent ratio of released to deposited particulate matter in the diameter range 0.5-1...


A pilot study: The effects of repeat washing and fabric type on the detection of seminal fluid and spermatozoa.

In sexual assault cases and more specifically those involving childhood sexual abuse (CSA), victims may have had their potentially semen-stained clothing washed multiple times before a criminal investigation commences. Although it has been previously demonstrated that spermatozoa persist on cotton clothing following a single wash cycle, items of clothing washed multiple times are not routinely examined in these cases because of the assumption that the laundering process would have removed all seminal fluid ...

Acute physiological and perceptual responses to wearing additional clothing while cycling outdoors in a temperate environment:A practical method to increase the heat load.

This investigation assessed the acute physiological and perceptual responses to wearing additional clothing during outdoor cycling to determine if this strategy could increase the heat load while training in temperate environments. Seven male cyclists (age: 32 ± 13 y, height: 179 ± 10 cm, body mass: 74 ± 10 kg, body fat percentage: 10.3 ± 1.0%) completed 2 randomized outdoor (∼17°C and ∼82% RH), 80 min cycling sessions at moderate-hard intensities (CR10 RPE = 3-5). They wore spandex shorts and a...

Wearer and non-wearer DNA on the collars and cuffs of upper garments of worn clothing.

During an investigation, the question of interest might be whether or not a person has worn a given garment. Wearer DNA studies have contributed to our knowledge and understanding of DNA transfer and persistence on items of worn clothing. However, there is currently no extensive dataset on DNA profiling outcomes from a variety of upper garments. Therefore we investigated the DNA profiling outcomes from the collars and/or cuffs of forty-four upper garments of worn clothing and determined the quantity of wear...

Pancreatic hamartoma: a sheep in wolf's clothing.

Development of a novel isolation unit for entomophthoralean fungi.

Entomophthoralean fungi are important natural enemies of pests and highly co-evolved with their hosts. However, successful isolation of entomophthoralean fungi can be difficult due to their fastidious culture requirements; this is an important obstacle to research on Entomophthorales. In this study, we designed an isolation unit and evaluated it against the conventional 'descending conidia' isolation method. There was no difference in contamination rate between the methods (78% and 76% clean isolations) des...

Transitioning Patients from the Intensive Care Unit to the General Pediatric Unit: A Piece of the Puzzle in Family-Centered Care.

Transitioning patients from one unit to another is a nursing function that occurs daily. When done effectively, it streamlines continuity of care, decreases anxiety, ensures patients and families maintain confidence in care providers, and avoids readmissions to the intensive care unit (ICU). This article describes a transition plan for transferring patients from the ICU to the general pediatric unit developed by an inpatient, non-critical care cardiology/neuro logical unit to facilitate a smooth and informa...

A Novel Adjustable Concept for Permeable Gas/Vapor Protective Clothing: Balancing Protection and Thermal Strain.

Armed forces typically have personal protective clothing (PPC) in place to offer protection against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) agents. The regular soldier is equipped with permeable CBRN-PPC. However, depending on the operational task, these PPCs pose too much thermal strain to the wearer, which results in a higher risk of uncompensable heat stress. This study investigates the possibilities of adjustable CBRN-PPC, consisting of different layers that can be worn separately or in co...

The maximum evaporative potential of constant wear immersion suits influences the risk of excessive heat strain for helicopter aircrew.

The heat exchange properties of aircrew clothing including a Constant Wear Immersion Suit (CWIS), and the environmental conditions in which heat strain would impair operational performance, were investigated. The maximum evaporative potential (im/clo) of six clothing ensembles (three with a flight suit (FLY) and three with a CWIS) of varying undergarment layers were measured with a heated sweating manikin. Biophysical modelling estimated the environmental conditions in which body core temperature would elev...

The effects of local forearm muscle cooling on motor unit properties.

Muscle cooling impairs maximal force. Using needle electromyography (EMG) to assess motor unit properties during muscle cooling, is limited and equivocal. Therefore, we aimed to determine the impact of local muscle cooling on motor unit firing properties using surface EMG decomposition.

Tuberculosis on the intensive care unit.

Patients with tuberculosis admitted to the intensive care unit represent a small (1-3%) yet significant subset of the global tuberculosis burden. This article reviews current evidence supporting the diagnosis and management of patients with tuberculosis admitted to an intensive care unit from a combination of cohort studies and national and international tuberculosis guidelines. This review considers admission, diagnosis, mechanical ventilation, infection control, treatment and prognosis of patients with tu...

Safety and Costs of Stroke Unit Admission for Select Acute Intracerebral Hemorrhage Patients.

There are limited data to guide intensive care unit (ICU) versus dedicated stroke unit (SU) admission for intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) patients. We hypothesized select patients can be safely cared for in SU versus ICU at lower costs.

Muscle strength and size are associated with motor unit connectivity in aged mice.

In older adults, the loss of muscle strength (dynapenia) and the loss of muscle mass (sarcopenia) are important contributors to the loss of physical function. We sought to investigate dynapenia, sarcopenia, and the loss of motor unit function in aging mice. C57BL/6J mice were analyzed with cross-sectional (males: 3 vs. 27 months; males and females: 8 vs. 12 vs. 20 months) and longitudinal studies (males: 10-25 months) using in vivo electrophysiological measures of motor unit connectivity (triceps surae com...

Pyrethroid insecticides maintain repellent effect on knock-down resistant populations of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes.

Pyrethroid-treated clothing is commonly worn for protection against mosquitoes; pyrethroids are both insecticides and repellents. Pyrethroid resistance has become increasingly common in Aedes aegypti, the vector of dengue, Zika, and other arboviruses, but it is not clear whether resistance is associated with reductions in repellency. In order to determine whether long-lasting permethrin impregnated (LLPI) clothing is protective, we used Aedes aegypti from New Orleans, LA (pyrethroid-sensitive) and San Juan,...

Sequential Migrations between Boron and Rhodium Centers: A Cooperative Process between Rhodium and a Monosubstituted Borohydride Unit.

The sodium salt of a monosubstituted borohydride anion containing a 2-mercaptopyridyl unit (mp) is reported herein. This compound was coordinated to a rhodium(I) center providing the complex [Rh{κ3-H,H,S-H3B(mp)}(NBD)] (1) (where NBD = 2,5-norbornadiene) in which the boron-based ligand is coordinated to the rhodium center via the thione donor and two of the B-H bonds of the BH3 unit. Reaction of complex 1 with carbon monoxide results in the activation of the complex leading to the product of a formal intra...
