). Lottery games, as a discrete category of gambling activities, include traditional lottery (or “lotto”) draws in which combinations of winning numbers are drawn daily or weekly, instant ticket or scratch card gambling, “watch ‘n win” terminal games, and
Our epigraphic terminology usually applies the name of cursive script to every kind of scratched inscriptions, although they were written in significantly different styles. Apart from the strange terminology, the major problems in the palaeography of Roman scratches are those of datation, and of the question: whom are those inscriptions to be connected with? The writing manner which might be called really cursive appears mostly on bricks and the tabulae ceratae; partially cursive texts occur 1) in the handwriting of more skilled writers, 2) in the writing of some special letters, most of all ‖, 3) when copying cursive scripts. It is the reason why functionally illiterate stone-cutters produce ununderstandable inscriptions, misinterpretating the cursive models. With some care, such misinterpretations can be explained and thus the meaningless texts reconstructed.
Introduction Bartonella henselae , a gram negative bacillus, is the causative agent of cat scratch disease (CSD), which typically presents with self-limiting lymphadenitis, but may also lead to more serious clinical manifestations such as
obvious scratch extending all the way to the balloon. It should be mentioned that the shaft bursting pressure is much higher than the bursting balloon pressure. Most probably, the defect was the result of friction with the wires and the wall of the guiding
The detection of tritium and14C-ethylene on the surface of nickel sheet was carried out by means of autoradiography. Two autoradiographical methods were
used, the ordinary stripping-film method and the electron-microscope autoradiographical method. The ordinary autoradiographs
indicated that14C-ethylene accumulates at scratches on the surface of the sheet; however, tritium accumulates at grain boundaries and scratches.
Electron-microscope autoradiographs indicated that tritium accumulates on the step-edges of slip band of nickel.

The authors describe a squamous cell carcinoma arising from the ear canal of a Long-eared Hedgehog (
). No metastasis could be identified elsewhere in the animal. Due to the irritation caused by the tumorous proliferation the animal constantly scratched the affected area, which led to secondary bacterial infection of the middle ear accompanied by the stagnation of an increased volume of local secretions. Using routine haematoxylin and eosin and immunohistochemical staining techniques, the tumour was identified as a squamous cell carcinoma. This work constitutes the first description of such a tumour in a Long-eared Hedgehog.
