Physiology
A metabolic unit used to quantify the intensity of physical activity, which is defined as the ratio of the metabolic rate during exercise to the metabolic rate at rest. One MET corresponds to an energy expenditure of approximately 1 kca1Jkg of body weight/hour, or an oxygen uptake of 3.5 ml of O2 consumption/kg/hour. The MET unit is of use when planning the rehabilitation of patients who have had a myocardial infarction.

Patient discussion about MET

Q. I have met my close friend after 3 years. She is showing some signs of high depression. How can I help her? I have met my very close friend after 3 years and she is very depressed. I am worried that she is showing some signs of high depression. She talks all rubbish and negatives these days which is filled with that nonsense hopelessness. She was fine and going good when I left her and now she is completely negative in her behavior and also very depressed. She is not able to enjoy my company. She had lost her weight and her eyes reflect the bluntness. She keeps silent most of the time. How can I help her?

A. I think first you must talk to her and find out about when and how this started. Take her to all the places where you both used to go. She might have come across difficult phase in these years which would have made her depressed and she may need a support to bring her back to normal way of living. We cannot say that this is a depression which would get cured by just talking and knowing the reasons but you must help her to fight back for the thing she had lost. If there is no desired result, then do consult a physician.

Borland is delighted to be helping the Met Office optimise their software delivery capabilities," said Steve Gedney, MD, Borland UK.
Borland secured the deal after being invited to tender for the Met Office's MIDE (Met Office Integrated Development Environment) project, a wide-ranging IT drive to improve the provision of better and more accurate forecasts for the public and other customers.
Under the auspices of the new contract, the Met Office will replace its existing E6500 StorHouse server with a more powerful Sun Fire E6900 model, and FileTek will begin revamping its MASS front-end client application known as MOUSE to operate on Linux clusters rather than existing Met Office platforms.
Mike Boyd, Central Systems Manager at the Met Office, commented, "The Met Office has been extremely pleased with FileTek products, services, and support over the past five years, and we look forward to our extended relationship with the company during the new contract period.
The MeT technologies and concepts will work on all networks, with all services and from all mobile devices and will draw on existing industry standards such as WAP, Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS), Wireless Identification Module (WIM), Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Bluetooth.
A first draft of the MeT specification is available now for review by the participants to the workshop at www.
The deal also includes brand and business unit presence throughout the new ballpark; rights to the Mets and Citi Field marks; the purchase of media on SportsNet New York (SNY); the launch of community outreach initiatives; and the development of international business opportunities in sports and entertainment.
The Mets and Citi will commission a statue and name the entry rotunda of Citi Field--inspired by the classic design of Ebbets Field--to honor baseball pioneer, Jackie Robinson.
Making his first major-league start after several lackluster relief appearances late last season and early this season, Kuo shut out the Mets on three hits over six innings while striking out seven.
But in the bottom of the inning, Tomko gave up a two-out, two-run single to Wright to put the Mets in front to stay.
What the Mets did Friday - and it might be determined two months from now - could have an equal affect on them as Arizona's dealing for Schilling.
The Mets did not formally announce the record deal, but the club was making arrangements for a news conference Monday, which Piazza will attend after he arrives from Los Angeles.
