However, the residuals of indicator scores generated by the SMAF and SQIP were normally distributed; therefore, an accumulated analysis of variance (ANOVA) of an unbalanced design was used to test for differences between treatments.
The sector assessment of SMAF used to assess soil physical quality considered bulk density and WHC as physical indicators (Fig.
Thus, to make an effective use of the potential of SMAF procedures in monitoring and evaluation of land management practices for crop production function in Ethiopia, the unique requirements of local crops such as tef need to defined, and a quantitative relationship between yield and the SQ attributes needs to be established.
With such inputs, the SMAF procedure is a promising tool for monitoring and evaluation of land management systems under the small-scale indigenous crops based farming systems in Ethiopia to improve the soil management practices and enhance sustainability.
Functional decline, the main outcome variable, was defined as one of the following: (1) an increase of 5 points or more on the SMAF score between the two home interviews; (2) admission to a nursing home or a long-term-care hospital; (3) death during the reference year.
The 13 subjects who were institutionalized during the reference year also fulfilled the criterion of an increase of 5 points or more in SMAF scores.
Since its development in 1984, the SMAF has been translated into several languages (`English, Spanish, Dutch) and used in many countries for clinical or research purposes.
The objectives of the study were: (1) to verify the test-retest and inter-rater reliability of the partial and total revised SMAF scores and (2) to study the impact of adding an intermediate level on the reliability of the scale.
The SMAF Sound Decorator is a tool for producing SMAF music data that can be played on mobile phones equipped with Yamaha's MA-3 (40-note polyphony) or MA-5 (64-note polyphony) synthesizer chips.
Yamaha developed SMAF as a multimedia data format that offers greater expressive capabilities as an electronic musical instrument data transmission format than conventional music data formats like SMF.
Furthermore, Yamaha is developing and recommending SMAF (Synthetic music Mobile Application Format) as a data format that can handle both melodies and multimedia data--text, still images, video, and digital audio--at the same time.
In HCV replicating cells, a translocation of the sMafs from the nucleus to the replicon complex occurs, where the sMafs bind to NS3 and thereby are withdrawn from the nucleus.
