In order to access the relative sensitivity of the CLRT and score test statistics, we introduce the shift values 1, 3, and 5 for the first observation and again for each combination of parameters, 1100 data sets are generated from the following model:
The CLRT, the score test statistic, and their empirical distribution were calculated as for the probability of a type I error given above, consequently the power of the test statistics are also derived.
TABLE 1: The probability of a type I error ([alpha] = 0.05) and power of CLRT and score test statistics for a variance shift model in a linear measurement error with combination different of parameters [beta], [[sigma].sup.2], [LAMBDA], and b = 1.
As shown in Table 2, the apparent whole tract digestibility of DM and OM was higher (p<0.05) in cattle consuming the CLRT supplement (0.55, 0.58) than in those supplemented with RTPP (0.52, 0.54), LLRT (0.52, 0.55) and MLRT (0.51, 0.54).
As shown in Table 3, N intake was similar in cattle fed LLRT, CLRT and MLRT supplements (1.238, 1.253 and 1.249 g N/kg [BW.sup.0.75]/d, respectively), but was lower in animals fed the RTPP supplement(1.184 g N/kg [BW.sup.0.75]/d).
Urinary allantain excretion of Brahman cattle supplemented with CLRT (0.593 mmol/kg [BW.sup.0.75]/d) was lower (p<0.05) than in those supplemented with RTPP and MLRT (0.818 and 0.790 mmol/kg [BW.sup.0.75]/d, respectively).
Selon le SG du CLRT, Mohamed Ayadi, la Badr a egalement soutenu le Niger financierement dans la realisation de son troncon.
Through observation, he and other practitioners have found that CLRT reduces pain, relaxes tight muscles, increases range of motion, lengthens shortened muscle fibers, and neutralizes trigger points.
The CLRT Basic Kit includes a manual and a DVD, Cranial Laser Reflex Technique with Dr.
Health practitioners who know their anatomy--including physical therapists, massage therapists, chiropractors, and sports medicine doctors--will find CLRT a quick, easy-to-use tool for musculoskeletal problems.
(38) A value-for-money report on the RAV Line was made public by CLRT in April 2006.
However, as even the CLRT's managers admit, this figure ought to be viewed with some scepticism.
