NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * “GRIPPING…THIS YARN HAS IT ALL.” —USA TODAY * “A WONDERFUL BOOK.” —Christian Science Monitor * “ENTHRALLING.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) * “A MUST-READ.” —Booklist (starred review) A human drama unlike any other—the riveting and definitive full story of the worst sea disaster in United States naval history. Just after midnight on July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis is sailing alone in the Philippine Sea when she is sunk by two Japanese torpedoes. For the next five nights and four days, almost three hundred miles from the nearest land, nearly nine hundred men battle injuries, sharks, dehydration, insanity, and eventually each other. Only 316 will survive. For the first time Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic tell the complete story of the ship, her crew, and their final mission to save one of their own in “a wonderful book…that features grievous mistakes, extraordinary courage, unimaginable horror, and a cover-up…as complete an account of this tragic tale as we are likely to have” (The Christian Science Monitor). It begins in 1932, when Indianapolis is christened and continues through World War II, when the ship embarks on her final world-changing mission: delivering the core of the atomic bomb to the Pacific for the strike on Hiroshima. “Simply outstanding…Indianapolis is a must-read…a tour de force of true human drama” (Booklist, starred review) that goes beyond the men’s rescue to chronicle the survivors’ fifty-year fight for justice on behalf of their skipper, Captain Charles McVay III, who is wrongly court-martialed for the sinking. “Enthralling…A gripping study of the greatest sea disaster in the history of the US Navy and its aftermath” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review), Indianapolis stands as both groundbreaking naval history and spellbinding narrative—and brings the ship and her heroic crew back to full, vivid, unforgettable life. “Vincent and Vladic have delivered an account that stands out through its crisp writing and superb research…Indianapolis is sure to hold its own for a long time” (USA TODAY).

Progesterone Release in CIDRs Using Different Sterilization Methods

Progesterone Release in CIDRs Using Different Sterilization Methods
The use of Controlled Internal Drug Release devices (CIDRs) have been used widely in the livestock industry to aid in estrus synchronization. It has become common practice to re-use CIDRs. Effectiveness of twice used inserts has recently been investigated, however practical means of disinfection are warranted. Objectives of the current study were to evaluate efficiency of re-used CIDRs, identify potential disinfectant methods to minimize cost, as well as to test if prolonged storage of CIDR affects progesterone release. Two experiments took place; Replication 1 (Fall 2016) and Replication 2 (Spring 2017); with 29 and 36 cows respectively with an average age of 3.9 in each experiment with animals blocked by age into treatment groups. Cows utilized were mixed age heifers and cows that were both lactating and non-lactating. All re-used CIDRs had previously been inserted in beef cows for 7 days. After removal, all CIDRs were washed in room temperature water (23° C) and scrubbed with a plastic bristled brush to remove foreign matter. Each animal received a CIDR disinfected in one of four treatment which included; new (CONT), autoclaved (AUTO), dishwasher (DISH) and chlorhexidine disinfected (CHLO). AUTO treatment CIDRS were processed and autoclaved at 121° C and 724 mmHg for 20 mins, DISH disinfected CIDRs were placed in a dishwasher and processed through one hot cycle (70° C) on high with chlorhexidine as the detergent, and in CHLO treatment the inserts were soaked in approximately 15 L of hot water (50° C) which included approximately 200 ml of chlorhexidine solution. The experimental period lasted 7 days with blood samples collected via coccygeal tail vessel at 0, 72, 168 ±2 h relative to CIDR insertion time. No age differences were found between treatment groups (P = 0.21). Interactions were not observed between Replication 1 and Replication 2 for treatments, however, a replication effect was observed (P = 0.0012). Higher overall progesterone levels were reported in fall 2016 compared to spring 2017. Overall plasma progesterone concentrations were not affected (P = 0.24) by CIDR treatment (AUTO, 3.31 ± 0.62 ng/ml; CHLO, 3.86 ± 0.62 ng/ml; DISH, 4.18 ± 0.60 ng/ml) when compared to the control (CONT, 2.75 ± 0.60 ng/ml). Disinfecting once used CIDRs with chlorhexidine and warm water solution allows for a second use without affecting progesterone release.
