The astronomers( Visual )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Astronomers believe the universe contains at least ten times as much mass as can be seen and accounted for. How they are able to detect this missing mass and to discover more about it are the subjects of this episode. Astronomers Vera Rubin and Tony Tyson describe their search for dark matter, material invisible to us but whose gravity affects the motion of stars and can alter the light reaching us from distant galaxies. In addition, John Dobson, a self-proclaimed "sidewalk astronomer," shares his knowledge with people he encounters

Identifying Dosage Effect of Light-Emitting Diode Therapy on Muscular Fatigue in Quadriceps( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Hemmings, TJ, Kendall, KL, and Dobson, JL. Identifying dosage effect of light-emitting diode therapy on muscular fatigue in quadriceps. J Strength Cond Res 31(2): 395-402, 2017--The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of various dosages of light-emitting diode therapy (LEDT) on muscle fatigue while performing a single-leg extension to exhaustion. A total of 34 recreationally resistance-trained athletes between the ages of 18 and 26 participated in 4 trials. Each trial included pre-exercise/postexercise blood lactate measurements and 2 sets of 3 maximal voluntary isometric contractions (MVICs), followed by LEDT on 6 points across the superficial quadriceps. Each randomized trial consisted of a placebo, 30, 60, or 120 seconds on each point on the quadriceps. Three minutes after LEDT, the participants performed an eccentric leg extension with 120% of MVIC until fatigue. There was significant increase in the number of repetitions performed between the placebo treatment and 60 seconds (p = 0.023), as well as placebo and 120 seconds (p = 0.004) of irradiation on each point. There were no significant differences in blood lactate levels between any of the 4 trials. In conclusion, LEDT had a positive effect on performance when irradiating 6 points on the superficial quadriceps for 60 and 120 seconds before an eccentric leg extension
