When asked what he does for a living . . . Commander Mark Bishop is deliberately low-key: "I'm in the Navy." But commanding the ballistic missile submarine USS Nevada, keeping her crew trained and alert during ninety-day submerged patrols, and being prepared to launch weapons on valid presidential orders, carries a burden of command like few other jobs in the military. Mark Bishop is a man who accepts that responsibility, and handles it well. And at a time when tensions are escalating around the Pacific Rim, the Navy is glad to have him. Mark wants someone to come home to after sea patrols. The woman he has in mind is young, with a lovely smile, and very smart. She's a civilian, yet she understands the U.S. Navy culture. And he has a strong sense that life with her would never be boring. But she may be too deep in her work to see the potential in a relationship with him. Gina Gray would love to be married. She has always envisioned her life that way. A breakup she didn't see coming, though, has her focusing all her attention on what she does best--ocean science research. She's on the cusp of a major breakthrough, and she needs Mark Bishop's perspective and help. Because what she told the Navy she's figured out is only the beginning. If she's right, submarine warfare is about to enter a new and dangerous chapter.

Darcy Ward has sold her soul to the devil. Okay, not quite the devil, but she did agree to work with Agent Arrogant and Annoying—aka Special Agent Alastair Burke of the FBI’s Art Crime Team to lay a trap for infamous black-market antiquities ring, Silk Road. Darcy loves shoes, computers, caffeine, and working at her family business, Treasure Hunter Security. The only thing missing is her dream of a once-in-a-lifetime love, like her parents share, and a man who’ll put her first. She’s not so crazy about Silk Road trying to kill her family and friends, nor is she fond of an order-giving FBI agent and his distracting cologne. Using a trio of cursed diamonds as bait, she’s working hard to set a trap for Silk Road in the Dashwood Museum, but as the black-market thieves escalate their attempts to stop Darcy, she finds herself swept into Alastair’s strong, protective arms. Alastair Burke is driven by vengeance. He’s dedicated his life to taking down Silk Road and its mysterious leader, the Collector, and now he finally has his chance. He can’t allow anything to distract him—especially not a sassy, smart woman who tests every bit of his control. But as the opening gala of the cursed diamonds exhibit approaches, the thieves target him and Darcy with a series of deadly attacks…and Alastair realizes he’ll do anything to keep her safe. With the FBI and the former SEALs of Treasure Hunter Security at their backs, Darcy and Alastair are caught up in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, and their fierce attraction. But with lives on the line, Alastair will find himself caught between his desire for revenge and keeping the woman he’s falling for alive.

Charlie Davies is back. And so, it seems, is Topher. Oh brother. All the signs point to Charlie's big bro, Topher, being back in town. The trouble is, Charlie can't find him - and she's not the only one looking. Even for an amazing PI, this is a tricky case, and Charlie's hardly in the 'amazing' category. With the police searching for her brother, convinced that he's a murderer, Charlie's racing against the clock to find him and help him before he's arrested - or worse. And given the way Officer James McKenzie has been behaving, she's not sure there's anyone else on her brother's side. She isn't even certain which side that is. Because when it really comes down to it, Topher has been missing for five years. How well does anyone - even Charlie - know him anymore? Of course, none of this is going to stop her from trying to find him first. Hey, she may not be all that talented, but no one can say Charlie Davies isn't determined.

"Undetected was written to enlighten all those with negative results. HIV victims are not monsters or lepers and cannot infect an individual simply by standing next to them or touching them. Instead, HIV victims are our mothers, fathers, aunts, cousins, best friends, wives, husbands, favorite grocer, deacons, teachers, neighbors, and close coworkers. They are individuals who need to be able to freely express their fears as well as joys in their daily walk with HIV."--P. [4] of cover.

Abstract : Objectives: To compare the characteristics of lesions detected or undetected by template‐guided transperineal saturation prostate biopsy and to evaluate the potential impact of undetected lesions. Materials and Methods: We evaluated the characteristics of lesions in radical prostatectomy (RP) specimens, compared the differences between lesions detected and undetected by systematic transperineal ultrasonography‐guided 11‐region biopsy with regard to tumour volume, Gleason score, surgical margin, spatial location and clinical significance, and assessed the potential impact of undetected clinically significant lesions. Results: The median number of biopsy cores was 24. Sixty‐four percent of the clinically significant lesions (170/264) were detected. There were significant differences between the detected and undetected lesions in tumour volume, Gleason score and clinical significance. Inconsistencies found in lesion position between biopsy and RP specimens in the anterior and posterior zones and the left and right sides was 3.4% (7/203) and 5.4% (11/203), respectively. Of the 129 patients, 13 (10.1%) were found to have undetected clinically significant lesions in the biopsy lying on the same side but in a different zone from the detected clinically significant lesions, whereas 23 patients (17.8%) had undetected clinically significant lesions in the biopsy lying on the opposite side from the detected clinically significant lesions. Conclusions: Template‐guided transperineal saturation prostate biopsy detected approximately two‐thirds of clinically significant lesions. Most of the undetected lesions were those with small tumour volume. Approximately 20–30% of patients had clinically significant undetected lesions in a different lobe or different quadrant from the detected lesions in the biopsy.

Abstract Early identification of ovarian cancer is an unresolved challenge and the predictive value of single symptoms is limited. We evaluated the performance of QCancer® (Ovarian) prediction model for predicting the risk of ovarian cancer in a UK cohort of general practice patients. A total of 1.1 million patients registered with a general practice surgery between 1 January 2000 and 30 June 2008, aged 30–84 years with 735 ovarian cancer cases, were included in the analysis. Ovarian cancer was defined as incident diagnosis of ovarian cancer during the 2 years after study entry. The results from this independent and external validation of QCancer® (Ovarian) prediction model demonstrated good performance on a large cohort of general practice patients. QCancer® (Ovarian) had very good discrimination with an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.86 and explained 59.9% of the variation. QCancer® (Ovarian) was well calibrated across all tenths of risk and over all age. The 10% of women with the highest predicted risks included 64% of all ovarian cancer diagnoses over the next 2 years. QCancer® (Ovarian) appears to be a useful tool for identifying undetected cases of ovarian cancer in primary care in the UK for early referral and investigation.

The undetected propagation of a fatigue crack constitutes a significant cause of aircraft and other structural failures. To raise the structural failure load to a relatively high level, the manufacturer can divide the structure into many small elements, which significantly increases the ability of a structure to tolerate an element failure. This report presents a procedure for calculating the probability that the element has not failed, as a function of the crack propagation time and hence the crack's length. The procedure's form is so simple that computations with a desk calculator can yield reasonably accurate results. To illustrate this, the report uses data that an aircraft manufacturer developed for the structural components/elements that currently limit the service life of an existing transport aircraft.

Abstract: Estimating the species, phylogenetic, and functional diversity of a community is challenging because rare species are often undetected, even with intensive sampling. The Good‐Turing frequency formula, originally developed for cryptography, estimates in an ecological context the true frequencies of rare species in a single assemblage based on an incomplete sample of individuals. Until now, this formula has never been used to estimate undetected species, phylogenetic, and functional diversity. Here, we first generalize the Good‐Turing formula to incomplete sampling of two assemblages. The original formula and its two‐assemblage generalization provide a novel and unified approach to notation, terminology, and estimation of undetected biological diversity. For species richness, the Good‐Turing framework offers an intuitive way to derive the non‐parametric estimators of the undetected species richness in a single assemblage, and of the undetected species shared between two assemblages. For phylogenetic diversity, the unified approach leads to an estimator of the undetected Faith's phylogenetic diversity ( PD, the total length of undetected branches of a phylogenetic tree connecting all species), as well as a new estimator of undetected PD shared between two phylogenetic trees. For functional diversity based on species traits, the unified approach yields a new estimator of undetected Walker et al.'s functional attribute diversity ( FAD, the total species‐pairwise functional distance) in a single assemblage, as well as a new estimator of undetected FAD shared between two assemblages. Although some of the resulting estimators have been previously published (but derived with traditional mathematical inequalities), all taxonomic, phylogenetic, and functional diversity estimators are now derived under the same framework. All the derived estimators are theoretically lower bounds of the corresponding undetected diversities; our approach reveals the sufficient conditions under which the estimators are nearly unbiased, thus offering new insights. Simulation results are reported to numerically verify the performance of the derived estimators. We illustrate all estimators and assess their sampling uncertainty with an empirical dataset for Brazilian rain forest trees. These estimators should be widely applicable to many current problems in ecology, such as the effects of climate change on spatial and temporal beta diversity and the contribution of trait diversity to ecosystem multi‐functionality.

Abstract : Background: Trauma exposure and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are common among individuals with a mental disorder, but symptoms often go undetected and untreated. Methods: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of PTSD among a large sample of adults with psychiatric diagnoses and to establish factors associated with symptoms going undetected. Participants were 1, 946 adults recruited by the National Centre for Mental Health. Structured interviews and validated self‐report questionnaires were used to ascertain clinical and demographic information for analysis. Results: The prevalence of participants screening positive for PTSD that had not been detected by clinical services was 13.9% [12.4–15.5%, 95% confidence interval]). Factors associated with undetected PTSD were female gender, younger age of first contact with psychiatric services, and lower household income. Especially, poor rates of detection were observed after traumatic events, such as child abuse and sexual assault. Conclusions: Our findings demonstrate the need for routine assessment of trauma histories and symptoms of PTSD among individuals with anymental disorder.
