The family is institution in which the life is born and rise. Homicide is cruel form of violence that is ruining and stopping the life. Those two, exclusive extremities, appear in one phenomenon- homicide in family.
Materials and methods:
This research is one part of comparative analytic prospective study, which last 10 years. In the Department of forensic psychiatry in Prison hospital in Belgrade we examined 266 perpetrators of homicide in family, 212 (79.70%) were male and 54 (20.30%) were female. Among those perpetrators we identified psychotic disorders in 77 mails (36.32 %) and 12 female (22.22 %). Thos groups committed 89 homicides in family with 99 victims.
We found statistically significant difference between males and females with regard to previous psychiatric treatment, alcohol abuses and intoxicated with alcohol at the time of the homicide. In male group with psychotic disorders, dominate schizophrenia (40, 26%) and paranoid psychosis (37, 66%), and in female dominate paranoid psychosis (50, 00%). Many perpetrators (41% male and 27% female) were not treated because of psychiatric disorder before, and psychiatric disorder diagnosed after the homicidal act.
Among perpetrators of homicide in family there were two times more male than female with psychopathological symptoms. In both groups, psychoses are most usual diagnosis. The arm of future research should be recognizing factors that increased risk of violent behaviors and comparing those factors among person with and without mental disorders.
The PULSE@Parkes project has been designed to monitor the rotation of radio pulsars over time spans of days to years. The observations are obtained using the Parkes 64-m and 12-m radio telescopes by Australian and international high school students. These students learn the basis of radio astronomy and undertake small projects with their observations. The data are fully calibrated and obtained with the state-of-the-art pulsar hardware available at Parkes. The final data sets are archived and are currently being used to carry out studies of 1) pulsar glitches, 2) timing noise, 3) pulse profile stability over long time scales and 4) the extreme nulling phenomenon. The data are also included in other projects such as gamma-ray observatory support and for the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array project. In this paper we describe the current status of the project and present the first scientific results from the Parkes 12-m radio telescope. We emphasise that this project offers a straightforward means to enthuse high school students and the general public about radio astronomy while obtaining scientifically valuable data sets.
The acute coronary syndrome is a leading cause of heart death among adults. The treatment of such patients begins during the first contact with the doctor who is in most cases neither an internist or cardiologist, but an emergency medicine specialist or general practitioner working in the emergency department. For that reason it is of great importance to educate doctors who will be able to establish a fast and precise diagnosis, start therapy and organize quick transport to the nearest catheterization room or coronary unit.
The primary objective was to measure frequency of patient's visits to the Emergency Department because of an acute coronary syndrome. The Secondary objective was to examine the choice of treatment in pre-hospital conditions.
Through the statistical retrospective analysis we collected the data from the Emergency Department protocols for the period between June 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008.
In 14,986 patients during the six-month period, 343 of them had acute coronary syndrome. Men were more affected ((59.5%) than women (40.5%). Most cases belonged to the age group from 65 to 80 years (39.6%) and prevalence after 50 years shows abrupt growth. According to the diagnoses, most patients had unstable pectoral angina (42%) and then followed stenocardia (31%) and AIM (27%). Other therapy included NTG (22%), antihypertensives (21%), acetyl-salicylic acid (20%), analgesics (13%), antiarrhythmics (4%). Fifty-seven percent of the patients had complications. STEMI was diagnosed in 69% of patients, and most often the anterior wall was involved (35%).
The diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome was established in 343 patients based on the clinical image, electrocardiographic changes and level of cardiospecific enzymes (troponin T).
In this article, we demonstrate the generation of four phase-locked
harmonic pulses separated in time using frequency-domain
interferometry. The spectra present a high sensitivity to a change of
the relative phase on an attosecond time scale. The spectral resolution
and the control of this relative phase could be used to perform high
