# PAINT OR PHOTOSHOP?
In earlier editions of Photoshop, the only way to import pictures was by importing the files into Photoshop and then saving the picture as a graphics file. To create an easy-to-share graphic, use the **Save for Web & Devices** command. Choose the **PNG** format, the best for graphics, and then drag the picture to your workspace (the document window), as shown in Figure 7-9. Click the **Save for Web & Devices** button. As a shortcut, you can also choose **File** and select **Save for Web & Devices**, although I find this shortcut a little confusing.
FIGURE 7-9: In earlier editions of Photoshop, you saved a picture to the document by converting it first to a graphics file.

Purification and characterization of a calcium binding lectin from papaya latex.
A calcium binding lectin which has been purified to homogeneity from papaya latex using DEAE-cellulose chromatography and affinity chromatography on Sepharose-wheat germ agglutinin has been isolated and partially characterized. The lectin has a molecular weight of about 24 kDa and pI of 8.0-8.2. The N-terminal amino acid sequence of the first 20 amino acids is NH2-RRLPV-LAITIKLL-TEFFDTSS-ILET-PVQRNE-VYLIGK-ASVAYLYE-ERTFMG. Antibodies prepared against the purified lectin showed positive reactions with antigens from papaya latex and latex from the genus Hibiscus, and gave negative reactions with antigens from Malus and Ananas. Lectin activity of papaya latex was closely associated with the level of polyphenol compounds present. These results are discussed in relation to the hypothesis of a relationship between polyphenol compounds and lectin production.Welcome to the official site of the award winning bestselling author

[The identification of arylpiperazine receptors in the rat striatum by in vivo autoradiography].
Brain receptor sites of arylpiperazine derivatives, phenylpiperazine (PIP), ketanserine (KET), and m-chlorophenylpiperazine (MCPP) were studied by in vivo autoradiography in the rat striatum. It was shown that the PIP and KET binding sites have high- and low-affinity sites, respectively, the latter ones being located mainly in the striatal matrix. MCPP binding was identified in the whole striatum, the site with highest affinity being located in the matrix. There was no significant difference between the radioligand binding sites and the type of innervation of the striatum.Re: Tontoe Bail Blackberry App

Patients with pathological gambling report long periods of nonadherence to treatment. The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of a device based on electrical skin resistance measurements to detect the degree of adherence to treatment. After a 1-week run-in period, patients were provided a skin-based electrochemical pulse sensor that they were instructed to wear continuously for the subsequent 7 days. On each day, patients were assessed at bedtime (before retiring). After patients completed the 7-day study, they returned for a follow-up interview. Patients completed the Problem Gambling Severity Index-Self-Report, Beck Depression Inventory, the Bradway Guilford Personality Inventory, and a global rating scale about the sensor’s accuracy. At bedtime, subjects received the full battery of questionnaires, but at the follow-
