The problem surgical colleague.  

PubMed

The surgical profession, more than any other medical specialty, is constantly in the limelight. Frequently, concerns are expressed about our colleagues. The concerns may be personality clashes rather than failure in behaviour or performance. Most concerns can be addressed locally with support from the Royal College Invited Review Mechanism of the National Clinical Assessment Service. Unfortunately, if the concern is sufficiently serious or repetitive it may warrant referral to the General Medical Council (GMC) who alone has the right to withdraw a surgeon's medical registration. The surgeon will then be unable to work in the medical profession in this country. The procedures the the surgeon must undergo if referred to the GMC are stressful and protracted. Even if successful the surgeon will probably be expected to undergo a period of retraining that will prove difficult to arrange. New proposals to modify the GMC procedures will reduce the standard of proof to one of 'balance of probabilities'. The surgical profession should be accountable to its patients and colleagues. Will our Royal College rise to the challenge to establish itself as the bulwark of the surgical profession? PMID:17688714

EDITORIAL: Dearing strikes again!  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Extra-territorial readers of this journal must surely hover between amazement and boredom at the periodic references to the time and energy spent in England in reviewing, changing, re-reviewing and re-changing its educational programmes from ages 5-18. (Scotland has its own educational system and seems to be doing quite well, thank you.) Recently, Sir Ron Dearing, the Government's educational trouble-shooter, who in a few short months managed to sort out the 5-16 curriculum to the satisfaction (more or less) of both Establishment and politicians, was given the task of redefining the principles underlying the education of 16-19 year-olds. In March 1996 he produced a report that has been greeted, initially at least, with the universal approval of the press and politicians of all parties. The main and century-old problem with the English educational system is the deep divide between academic (pre-university) and vocational education. This may reflect the broad division between `gentlemen' and players (artisans) that seems to be a feature of English society, and which may be too wide for a mere education system to bridge. A second problem has been the perceived narrowness, due to overspecialization into just three subjects, of pre-university courses, which has tended to produce yet another divide - between arts graduates (interesting, lively, well-read, cultured) and science graduates (boring, uncouth, illiterate). However, the rather boringly titled Review of Qualifications for 16-19 Year Olds, Summary ReportFootnote is at least clear in its intentions of bridging both gaps. It reviews the continuing decline in the popularity of mathematics and science subjects as pre-university (A-level) courses, and records that the parallel vocational courses (GNVQ) in science do not yet match their status and their acceptance by employers, and people in general. It accepts the failure of Advanced Supplementary courses to provide a broadening of the 16-19 curriculum. It makes many recommendations which will need very careful and intelligent management if they are to be both workable and beneficial; unfortunately recent history tells us that the Government's agencies responsible for educational management are insensitive to the advice of practitioners and work to hidden political agendas based on prejudgement if not downright prejudice. The Report's recommendations certainly provide a challenge for post-16 physics, especially for A-level. It is to be hoped that the new structures and initiatives of the Institute of Physics will be able to play a full part in ensuring that changes are beneficial and workable. Firstly, Sir Ron wants A-levels to provide opportunities and contexts for the development of some general skills, identified as communication (both written and oral), numeracy and in information technology, with a less clear reference to an ability to work as part of a team. Challenge 1: find good contexts in physics for these - and a valid assessment system. Secondly, the curriculum should be broadened by a kind of two-phase approach to post-16 studies. Potential A-level students would spend a year studying as many as six Advanced Subsidiary level subjects, chosen from four main areas: science, maths and technology; modern languages; arts and humanities; `the way the community works' (business, economics, law, psychology etc). Each new-style AS would be the first half of an A-level course. The second phase would allow specialization into, say, three A-levels as at present, or to a combination of A and AS courses. Challenge 2: design a half course that makes sense, and is as useful to potential lawyers as to potential physicists. Thirdly, there should be an increase in the size of the A-level subject cores. Challenge 3: design such an extended core that is less boringly old-fashioned than the current one (not too difficult, that) and is capable of useful fission (see Challenge 2). This is a good opportunity to consider the nature of a `core' in physics for such a wide variety of intended learners. A sheer increase in content would be

Dear Doc: advice for collaborators.  

PubMed

Years ago, when Doc was a junior faculty member she became aware of a situation that changed her life. An extremely well-known senior scientist in her department took the data of a graduate student and published it in a very significant, oft-cited paper without crediting the student in any way. That this action had the tacit approval of the department chair was confusing. Dismayed by this violation of trust and feeling powerless to intervene, she decided to become the Dear Abby of Science. Working in the lab during the day she was becoming a world-renowned researcher as well as a highly revered mentor to younger scientists. At night, disguised as Dr. Doc she began advising other researchers who were looking for help with their sticky situations. As word of mouth spread about Doc more and more researchers sought out her advice about a wide range of problems in their labs and in their collaborations. She is currently entertaining a proposal from a collaborative group of editors from high-impact journals to develop a web presence that would offer insightful advice to struggling scientific collaborators around the world. The following is a selection of letters from Doc's files focused on collaboration. The names and details in the letters have been changed to protect confidentiality. PMID:24073149

Attitude of Dental Practitioners Towards their Colleagues: A Justifiable Criticism  

PubMed Central

Aim: A cross-sectional, questionnaire based study was conducted in Moradabad, U.P., India to assess the attitude of dental practitioners towards their colleagues. Materials and Methods : Eleven-item, close-ended, validated questionnaire was formulated. The responses of 60 registered dental practitioners were recorded. Results: Majority of the respondents were well versed with ethical obligations towards their colleagues but only few of them were aware of all the principles mentioned in Codes of dental ethics, DCI, India. Conclusion: Dentists face ethical problems/dilemmas while dealing with their duties towards colleagues and their patients. Adopting of ethical ways in practice was independent of gender, qualification and experience of practice. It is recommended that dental ethics should be emphasized upon during the formative years of dental education.

PREFACE: 2nd International Conference on Particle Physics in memoriam Engin Ar?k and her Colleagues  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The 2nd International Conference on Particle Physics in memoriam Engin Ar?k and her Colleagues: Fatma ?enel Boyda?, ?skender Hikmet, Mustafa Fidan, Berkol Do?an and Engin Abat was held at Do?u? University, ?stanbul, Turkey on 20-25 June 2011. The conference was organized jointly by the Do?u? and Bo?aziçi Universities, with support from CERN and the Turkish Academy of Sciences. This was the second International Conference on Particle Physics (ICPP) organized in memory of Engin Ar?k and her Colleagues who lost their lives in the tragic plane accident on November 30 2007, on their way to the workshop of the Turkish Accelerator Center (TAC) Project. The first of this conference series was held on 27-31 October 2008 at Bo?aziçi University, ?stanbul, Turkey. The conference is intended to be repeated every two years in Istanbul as a Conference Series under the name 'ICPP-Istanbul'. Professor Engin Ar?k had a pioneering role in experimental particle physics in Turkey, and was an inspiring teacher to many colleagues. She led the Turkish participation in experiments at CERN such as CHARMII, SMC, CHORUS, ATLAS and CAST. One of her latest involvements was in the national project to design the Turkish Accelerator Center with the collaboration of 10 Turkish universities including Do?u? and Bo?aziçi. Our dear colleagues not only participated in the TAC project but also collaborated on the ATLAS (E Ar?k, E Abat and B Do?an) and CAST (E Ar?k, F ?enel Boyda?, ? Hikmet and B Do?an) experiments. We believe that the ICPP-Istanbul conference series has been, and will always be, a way to commemorate them in a most appropriate context. The topics covered in ICPP-Istanbul-II were 'LHC Physics and Tevatron Results', 'Neutrinos and Dark Matter', 'Particle Factories' and 'Accelerator Physics and Future TeV Scale Colliders'. The main emphasis was on the recent experimental results in high-energy physics with discussions on expectations from existing or future experiments. There were 20 plenary and 35 contributed talks at the conference, and a majority of these presentations are included in this proceedings. We are grateful to all speakers, the collaborations represented, and all members of the advisory and organizing committees for their invaluable contributions which enabled the conference to reach such a high scientific quality with many exciting results and discussions, making it a big success.

Do electronic mail discussion lists act as virtual colleagues?  

PubMed Central

Anesthesiology Discussion Group (ADG), an electronic mail (email) discussion list, has previously been shown to be a clinically oriented, cost-effective form of telemedicine. ADG is composed of an international collection of anesthesia providers. Discussions with colleagues are generally informal in nature and are examples of types of information-seeking behavior which frequently occur in hallways or lounges of a hospital or clinic. Information-seeking occurs when a health care provider searches for information which will be used to solve or satisfy a patient's problem or need. We surveyed practitioners who had previously submitted non-rhetorical, clinical questions to the group. After analysis of the questionnaire results, we conclude that ADG is a valuable resource used for information-seeking and is a clinically effective form of telemedicine. Many of the respondents indicated that they used ADG to obtain second opinions from the collective expertise of group members. Respondents also indicated that they were generally satisfied with the quality of responses and would not hesitate to use ADG for future clinical questions.

Effect of colleague and coworker abuse on family physicians in Canada  

PubMed Central

Abstract Objective To assess the effects of physician-colleague and coworker abuse on family physicians in Canada. Design A mixed-methods, bilingual study that included surveys and telephone interviews. Setting Canada. Participants Family physicians in active practice who were members of the College of Family Physicians of Canada in 2009. Methods Surveys were mailed to a random sample of family physicians (N = 3802), and 37 family physicians who had been abused in the past year participated in telephone interviews. Main findings A total of 770 surveys (20%) were completed. A small number of respondents reported having been subjected to abuse by physician colleagues (9%) or coworkers (6%) in the previous month. Many of the respondents reported that the same physician colleagues or coworkers were repeat abusers. More than three-quarters (77%) of the physician-colleague abusers were men, whereas more than three-quarters (77%) of the other coworker abusers were women. Interviewed family physicians described feeling humiliated and unappreciated, and developed symptoms of anxiety or depression. As a result of the abuse, some family physicians terminated their employment or refused to work in certain environments. The most striking effect of this abuse was that respondents reported losing confidence in their professional abilities and skills. Conclusion Although only a small number of family physicians experience abuse by physician colleagues and other coworkers, the effects can be considerable. Victims reported a loss of confidence in their clinical abilities and some subsequently were faced with mental health issues.

A Marriage of Convenience? A qualitative study of colleague supervision of Master's level dissertations.  

PubMed

The focus of this study is colleague supervision of Master's level dissertations. A qualitative study was undertaken and in-depth interviews with research supervisors (n=7) and students (n=7) who had experienced colleague supervision of masters' level dissertations in the previous four years were undertaken. Independent 'outsider' researchers were deployed to undertake the interviews. A thematic content analysis approach was utilised and an analogy of a 'Marriage of Convenience' was used to describe the various dimensions and significant chronological events of the student/supervisor relationship. Four data themes were identified and included: 'Match making and betrothal', 'Soul mates or not', 'Married life' and 'Giving birth'. The study's findings give rise to a number of recommendations that will be of interest to all healthcare educators who are involved in supervision of colleagues' academic research activities.

Mitochondria have been described as “the powerhouses of the cell” because they link the energy-releasing activities of electron transport and proton pumping with the energy conserving process of oxidative phosphorylation, to harness the value of foods in the form of ATP. Such energetic processes are not without dangers, however, and the electron transport chain has proved to be somewhat “leaky.”

Colleague interactions and new drug prescribing behavior: the case of the initial prescription of antidepressants in Taiwanese medical centers.  

PubMed

This research explores the social factors influencing hospital physicians' initial adoption of duloxetine hydrochloride, with a focus on colleague interactions. The study analyzes archival data compiled by the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan to examine how the prescribing decisions made by psychiatrists' colleagues influence the likelihood of the psychiatrists' initial prescription. The results show that the adoption ratio of a physician's colleagues in a medical center is positively associated with the likelihood of a physician's adoption of the new drug. Specifically, colleague groups with similar and longer tenure as well as similar and older age have significantly positive effects. Colleague groups with the same and different gender also have positive effects. In summary, tenure and age, rather than gender, are vital sources of heterogeneous colleague interactions.

Public's view of mental health services for the elderly: responses to Dear Abby.  

PubMed

The need for adequate mental health services for older adults is an increasingly urgent issue as the life expectancy of Americans continues to extend; yet there are unresolved questions regarding the public's perception of service needs. The Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry collaborated with advice columnist Jeannie Phillips of "Dear Abby" to invite public feedback on mental health services for the elderly. Feedback was invited on access to services as well as perceived need for improvement in the quality or quantity of those services. The effort resulted in 800 responses that identified three primary issues: problems in accessing care, inadequate detection of mental health conditions by general practitioners, and a need for more psychotherapy services. It is hoped that this Open Forum will stimulate discussion throughout the country for the benefit of older persons with mental health needs as the country grapples with changes to come after the passage of health care reform.

Society for College Science Teachers: "But, I Thought We Were Colleagues?" Professors Evaluating Professors  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Isn't forcing faculty to serve as evaluators of peers a lot to expect? To assign tenured professors to evaluate their colleagues is also not fair when the work is nerve racking, the time is demanding, and the stakes are high. Faculty evaluations are the determining factor in promotion, rank, and tenure. It's just not right to put this on the shoulders of academics whose job it is to teach and research. This month's column discusses the many reasons why faculty shouldn't be expected to evaluate each other.

Hospitals in the storm-battered Northeast get lessons in recovery, retooling from Louisiana colleagues.  

PubMed

When Hurricane Katrina devastated greater New Orleans in 2005, only one hospital was able to stay fully operational throughout the crisis. Not only was Ochsner Health System's main campus situated on higher ground than most facilities, it also had access to food, water, and enough emergency power to keep the doors open. Nonetheless, administrators took advantage of lessons learned during the crisis to beef up communications and make emergency systems more robust for the next storm. And now they are sharing these lessons with colleagues in the Northeast who have just been through their own monster storm crisis with Hurricane Sandy. Ochsner was able to weather Katrina with partial emergency power, but it has since made sure that all hospitals within the Ochsner system have access to full emergency power, if need be. To overcome communications difficulties experienced during Katrina, Ochsner has implemented several methods of communications, including satellite phone links with the switchboard and short-wave radios. These systems are tested regularly. Hospital administrators advise colleagues to make emergency plans for their facilities to operate without any external support. Steps short of this goal will potentially leave you inadequately prepared, they say. PMID:23495415

Using artifact methodology to compare learning assistants' and colleagues' classroom practices  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The University of Colorado's LA-Test K-12 research team investigated the classroom practices of former Learning Assistants' who went on to become K-12 teachers. One of the tools used for this analysis of classroom practice was the Scoop Notebook, an instructional artifact package developed to assess teachers' use of reform-oriented practices. In this paper, the authors characterize differences in classroom practices between former Learning Assistants teaching at the secondary level and their colleagues through the collection and analysis of teaching artifacts. Analyses of these artifacts indicate significant differences between LA and non-LA groups. A description of the methodology and implications of using artifact packages to study classroom practice will be discussed, detailing the role of the LA experience in teacher preparation.

Antibody protects against lethal infection with the neurally spreading reovirus type 3 (Dearing).  

PubMed Central

The mammalian reoviruses have provided a valuable model for studying the pathogenesis of viral infections of the central nervous system (CNS). We have used this model to study the effect of antibody on disease produced by the neurally spreading reovirus type 3 (Dearing) (T3). Polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies protect mice from fatal infection with T3 after either footpad or intracerebral virus challenge. Protection occurs with monoclonal antibodies directed against the viral cell attachment protein sigma 1, and with polyclonal antisera without T3 sigma 1 binding activity. In vivo protection occurs with both neutralizing and nonneutralizing monoclonal antibodies. Antibody-mediated protection does not require serum complement and, under specific circumstances, can occur via Fc-independent mechanisms. Antibody can protect mice when transferred up to 5 days after intracerebral challenge and up to 7 days after footpad challenge, times when high titers of virus are present in the CNS. Thus, antibody mediated protection against this neurally spreading virus does not require neutralizing antibody or serum complement and occurs even in the face of established CNS infection. Images

Changing the p53 master regulatory network: ELEMENTary, my dear Mr Watson.  

PubMed

The p53 master regulatory network provides for the stress-responsive direct control of a vast number of genes in humans that can be grouped into several biological categories including cell-cycle control, apoptosis and DNA repair. Similar to other sequence-specific master regulators, there is a matrix of key components, which provide for variation within the p53 master regulatory network that include p53 itself, target response element sequences (REs) that provide for p53 regulation of target genes, chromatin, accessory proteins and transcription machinery. Changes in any of these can impact the expression of individual genes, groups of genes and the eventual biological responses. The many REs represent the core of the master regulatory network. Since defects or altered expression of p53 are associated with over 50% of all cancers and greater than 90% of p53 mutations are in the sequence-specific DNA-binding domain, it is important to understand the relationship between wild-type or mutant p53 proteins and the target response elements. In the words of the legendary detective Sherlock Holmes, it is 'Elementary, my dear Mr. Watson'. PMID:17401428

Dear enemies and nasty neighbors in crayfish: effects of social status and sex on responses to familiar and unfamiliar conspecifics.  

PubMed

Our experiment examined the ability of crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) to discriminate between familiar and unfamiliar conspecifics of equivalent social status, and investigated whether this species displays dear enemy or nasty neighbor effects. Pairs of size and sex matched crayfish fought to establish social status and the resulting dominant and subordinate crayfish then participated in a choice phase in which they interacted with two conspecifics tethered in an arena. Both choice conspecifics had the same social status and sex, but one was familiar (the focal animal's previous opponent) and the other was novel. We found that subordinate focal animals of both sexes spent significantly more time in proximity to the unfamiliar choice animal, behavior inconsistent with the dear enemy and nasty neighbor hypotheses. In contrast, male and female dominant focals differed significantly: females spent more time close to and fighting with the familiar choice animal while male dominants responded equivalently to the two choice animals. Thus the response of crayfish toward familiar and unfamiliar conspecifics was complex and not explained by a single hypothesis. We suggest that, in addition to familiarity and unfamiliarity, the perceived threat-level of opponents influences the behavior of crayfish toward conspecifics. PMID:23769936

Dear white boss. Do you remember that first management-team offsite.  

PubMed

It's easy for white managers to assume that their colleagues of color face the same basic challenges they do. On one level that's true--the work itself is the same. But on another level, African-American managers often contend with an atmosphere of tension, instability, and distrust that can be so frustrating they lose the desire to contribute fully. Their white bosses and coworkers are simply unaware of the "miasma" and are often puzzled when African-Americans quit apparently for no reason or seemingly overreact to a minor incident. This portrayal of what it's like to be different in the workplace takes the form of a fictional letter from a black manager to a white boss. The letter, based on interviews and surveys the authors conducted with hundreds of mid- to senior-level African-American managers, is not about the lack of role models or mentors of color or any of the other barriers that limit opportunities for blacks in corporate America. Instead, the letter sheds light on the realities that lurk below the surface for black managers--the feeling that they leave some part of their identities at home and the sometimes subtle and often systemic racial biases that inhibit and alienate African-Americans. "Differences really do matter, although they may matter in ways you probably didn't expect. One of the big ways they matter is that race is always with us," the letter writer observes. "As a friend of mine said recently, 'I don't think a day goes by that I'm not reminded that I'm black.'" The letter may not apply to every leader, black or white, or to every organization, but the issues are more widespread than corporate America cares to acknowledge. It should be required reading for all white executives who don't want talent to slip through their fingers. PMID:12422791

Triage and Management of the Injured in World War I: The Diuturnity of Antoine De Page and a Belgian Colleague  

PubMed Central

A system of orderly triage of the injured in World War I and a protocol for early wound management of war injuries were introduced by Antoine De Page in 1914 at the beginning of World War I. The five steps of the De Page protocol (coined by the author as Ordre de Triage) were to be followed in detail by the French and Belgian armies. A younger Belgian colleague, Robert Danis, was recruited to aid in the management of the ambulance corps to transport the injured from dressing (“clearing”) stations to centers of more advanced care, away from the Franco-Belgian front. Danis, also from Brussels, introduced the principles of osteosynthesis of bone a little over a decade later. De Page and Danis, both surgeons, tendered immense carry-forwards for future generations.

Impact of feeling responsible for adverse events on doctors' personal and professional lives: the importance of being open to criticism from colleagues  

PubMed Central

Objective: To investigate the impact of adverse events that had caused patient injury and for which the doctor felt responsible, and the experience of acceptance of criticism among colleagues. Design: Self-reports based on postal questionnaires to 1616 doctors. Setting: Norway. Participants: A representative sample of 1318 active doctors. Results: 368/1294 (28%) reported that they had experienced at least one adverse event with serious patient injury. Being male and working within a surgical discipline (including anaesthesiology, obstetrics and gynaecology) significantly increased the probability of such reports. 38% of the events had been reported to official authorities and, for 17% of doctors, the incident had a negative impact on their private life; 6% had needed professional help. 50% and 54%, respectively, found it difficult to criticise colleagues for their ethically or professionally unacceptable conduct. Doctors who found it easy to criticise colleagues also reported having received more support from their colleagues after a serious patient injury. Conclusion: Male surgeons report the highest prevalence of adverse events. Criticism for professionally and ethically unacceptable conduct is difficult to express among doctors. More acceptance of criticism of professional conduct may not only prevent patient harm, but may also give more support to colleagues who have experienced serious patient injury.

What challenges hamper Kenyan family physicians in pursuing their family medicine mandate? A qualitative study among family physicians and their colleagues  

PubMed Central

Background Since 2005, Kenyan medical universities have been training general practitioners, providing them with clinical, management, teaching and research skills, in order to enhance access to and quality of health care services for the Kenyan population. This study assesses what expectations family physicians, colleagues of family physicians and policy makers have of family medicine, what expectations family physicians live up to and which challenges they face. Methods Family physicians were observed and interviewed about their expectations and challenges concerning family medicine. Expectations among their colleagues were assessed through focus group discussions. Policy makers’ expectations were assessed by analysing the governmental policy on family medicine and a university’s curriculum. Results Roles perceived for and performed by family physicians included providing comprehensive care, health care management, teaching, and to a lesser extent community outreach and performing research. Challenges faced by family physicians were being posted in situations where they are regarded as just another type of specialist, lack of awareness of the roles of family physicians among colleagues, lack of time, lack of funds and inadequate training. Conclusions The ministry’s posting policy has to be improved to ensure that family physicians have a chance to perform their intended roles. Creating an environment in which family physicians can function best requires more effort to enlighten other players in the health care system, like colleagues and policy makers, about the roles of family physicians.

Sherlock Holmes, the greatest detective who never lived, draws a great amount of influence from the medical world. Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes creator and the author of his many adventures, was a physician, before devoting himself to writing. Doyle was fascinated with the incredible abilities of his legendary teacher, Dr. Joseph Bell, to draw conclusions based on apparently minor unimportant details. At a later stage, Doyle admitted that Sherlock Holmes' character was based upon Joseph Bell way of practicing medicine. Sherlock Holmes' adventures are paved with medical descriptions of various illnesses. This article reviews the connection between the author, the detective and the medical world. PMID:14631915

Identifying housing and meteorological conditions influencing residential air exchange rates in the DEARS and RIOPA studies: development of distributions for human exposure modeling.  

PubMed

Appropriate prediction of residential air exchange rate (AER) is important for estimating human exposures in the residential microenvironment, as AER drives the infiltration of outdoor-generated air pollutants indoors. AER differences among homes may result from a number of factors, including housing characteristics and meteorological conditions. Residential AER data collected in the Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS) and the Relationships of Indoor, Outdoor and Personal Air (RIOPA) study were analyzed to determine whether the influence of a number of housing and meteorological conditions on AER were consistent across four cities in different regions of the United States (Detroit MI, Elizabeth NJ, Houston TX, Los Angeles, CA). Influential factors were identified and used as binning variables for deriving final AER distributions for the use in exposure modeling. In addition, both between-home and within-home variance in AER in DEARS were quantified with the goal of identifying reasonable AER resampling frequencies for use in longitudinal exposure modeling efforts. The results of this analysis indicate that residential AER is depended on ambient temperature, the presence (or not) of central air conditioning, and the age of the home. Furthermore, between-home variability in AER accounted for the majority (67%) of the total variance in AER for Detroit homes, indicating lower within-home variability. These findings are compared with other previously published AER distributions, and the implications for exposure modeling are discussed. PMID:23443234

Progress on understanding spatial and temporal variability of PM(2.5) and its components in the Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS).  

PubMed

The Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS) measured personal exposures, ambient, residential indoor and residential outdoor concentrations of select PM2.5 aerosol components (SO4, NO3, Fe, Si, Ca, K, Mn, Pb, Zn, EC and OC) over a three year period (2004-2007). These events represented approximately 190 calendar days of monitoring which was performed in seven residential neighborhoods throughout Wayne County, MI. The selection of neighborhoods and participants for study inclusion was based upon an a priori hypothesis that each neighborhood represented a potentially distinct air quality scenario being influenced by both regional as well as local pollution sources. Daily (24 h integrated) measurement data were used to evaluate the spatial and temporal PM2.5 compositional variability of the personal, indoor and outdoor spatial settings as they related to a central ambient monitoring site (Allen Park). Many of the PM2.5 components were observed to have spatially different outdoor mass concentrations in matched neighborhood by neighborhood comparisons, with sulfate, OC, and NO3 being noted exceptions. Coefficient of divergence (COD) comparisons involving outdoor measures for Ca, Si, Fe, Zn, Pb, and EC revealed significant spatial variability. While concentrations of most components were lower indoors as compared to outdoor measures, K and Si indoor concentrations often reflected aerosol enrichment (indoor/outdoor ratios ? 1.2). Even when personal exposures were adjusted for day to day changes in ambient concentrations, certain components (Ca, Fe, Mn, Zn, among others) revealed a high degree of location-specific spatial variability suggesting the influences of personal activities and/or local source influences on total personal PM2.5 exposures. As a whole, findings indicate that reliance on a central ambient monitor as a surrogate for total personal and potentially even residential outdoor estimates of PM2.5 aerosol composition may provide an undesirable degree of exposure uncertainty for health-based risk estimates. The focus of this paper is on the spatial variability and uncertainty in using a central monitoring site to estimate exposures.

Determinants of the associations between ambient concentrations and personal exposures to ambient PM2.5, NO2, and O3 during DEARS  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Personal total exposure (Et) is composed of exposure to pollutants of ambient origin (Ea) and nonambient origin (Ena), both of which are associated with health effects. However, Ea is more relevant for estimating the health effects associated with ambient air pollutants. Associations between Ea and ambient concentrations (Ca) were examined for different subpopulations in the Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS). First, Ea was estimated for PM2.5, NO2, and O3. The associations between Ca and Ea were then characterized with mixed effect models. Ca served as a good surrogate for Ea for PM2.5 in both summer (slope = 0.80) and winter (slope = 0.55), but only in summer for O3 and NO2 (slope = 0.13 for NO2, and slope = 0.03 for O3). The effects of exposure determinants on Ea-Ca associations were examined using mixed effect models. Exposure determinants examined include personal activities, building and household characteristics and ambient apparent temperature (AT). The strength of associations between Ca and Ea differed between that for the entire study population and different subpopulations, which in turn differed from each other. Personal activities and building characteristics significantly affected the Ea-Ca associations through modifying the air exchange rate (AER). Ca was not a significant indicator of Ea for O3 and NO2 for homes with central AC or with windows closed. Ambient AT affected the Ea-Ca associations through modifying both AER and personal activities. The fraction of daily time spent outdoors peaked (6%) at about 22 °C, and monotonically decreased when ambient AT departed from 22 °C. Adequate accounting for the effects of exposure determinants on the Ea-Ca associations will lead to a better understanding of the Ea-Ca associations and of the uncertainties associated with using ambient concentrations as surrogates for personal exposures of ambient origin.

Unfortunately, today very few care about medical deontology-ethics that is about how to behave and respect others when we exercise our medical duties. Perhaps we do not show our real care and kind leadership to our students. We do not very much respect our medical colleagues. We are often tired to spend much time examining patients. We attend medical meetings for pleasure or because our expenses are covered by pharmaceutical firms. We write unimportant papers in order to have a rich curriculum. We consider the Impact Factor of a journal as awarded only to underline the importance of a letter to the Editor we publish in a prestigious journal. We refrain from useful research. We are not always truthful in publishing the results of our research. Many such examples are included in this paper. Overall, we go for a financial success disregarding the "old" Hippocratic ideas and oath. We are supposed to seak for life-happiness. Instead, we feel guilty, inconvenient as to our social behaviour and unhappy.

Assessing spatial and temporal variability of VOCs and PM-components in outdoor air during the Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Exposure models for air pollutants often adjust for effects of the physical environment (e.g., season, urban vs. rural populations) in order to improve exposure and risk predictions. Yet attempts are seldom made to attribute variability in observed outdoor air measurements to specific environmental variables. This research presents a statistical strategy to identify and explain the spatial and temporal components of air pollutant measurement variance using regional predictors and large-scale (with impacts over multiple kilometers of distance) emission source effects. The emission sources considered in this investigation include major highways and industries, and were chosen based on their proximity to monitoring areas designated in the Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS). Linear mixed effects models were used to investigate 24-h averaged outdoor residential air measurements of several pollutants, including PM2.5 mass, PM components (elemental carbon, organic carbon, metals, elements), nitrogen dioxide, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Three hierarchal statistical models were utilized to calculate and examine variance component estimates for each analyte before and after adjustment for fixed effects, which included sampling season, day of the week, air concentrations at an ambient (centralized) monitoring site, and the frequency of time a receptor was downwind of specific large-emissions sources. Results indicate that temporal variability accounted for the majority of total measurement variance (90% on average). Adjustments for ambient concentration and sampling season significantly reduced temporal variance estimates for most VOCs and for about half of the PM components (generally with reductions of 24-97%). Major exceptions to this trend were found with metals (Fe, Mn, and Zn), ethyltoluene, and p-dichlorobenzene, where only 4-30% of the temporal variance was explained after the same adjustments. Additional reductions in temporal variance (up to 37%) were observed after adjusting for the large-emission sources and day of the week effects, with the strongest effects observed for PM components, including select metals. Thus, for the Detroit airshed, VOCs appear to have been largely affected by regional factors, whereas PM components were explained by both regional factors and localized large-emissions sources. Examination of the radial directions associated with suspected emission sources generally supported a priori expectations of source-analyte associations (e.g., NO2 increases from areas of high vehicle traffic). Overall, this investigation presents a statistical multi-pollutant analysis strategy that is useful for simultaneously (1) estimating spatial and temporal variance components of outdoor air pollutant measurements, (2) estimating the effects of regional variables on pollutant levels, and (3) identifying likely emissions sources that may affect outdoor air levels of individual or co-occurring pollutants.

Ependymoblastoma: dear, damned, distracting diagnosis, farewell!*.  

PubMed

Ependymoblastoma is a diagnostic label that has been applied to a variety of rare central nervous system (CNS) tumors over the last eight decades. Consequently, there is uncertainty about whether such an entity exists and what its characteristic features might be. The current study, based on 14 cases from our institutional archives and identified by the search terms "ependymoblastoma,"ependymoblastomatous," "ependymoblastic" or "PNET with ependymal differentiation," aimed to test the hypothesis that the ependymoblastoma is a distinct and recognizable entity. Ependymoblastic rosettes are a key diagnostic feature and were present in 11/14 (79%) tumors, eight (73%) of which were embryonal tumors with abundant areas of neuropil-like differentiation. Three other cases showed rare ependymoblastic rosettes in the histopathological setting of a typical primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET), medulloblastoma (MB) or atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT). The remaining cases were all embryonal tumors with structures that mimicked ependymoblastic rosettes. Our results indicate that ependymoblastic rosettes are most frequently encountered in embryonal tumors with abundant neuropil and less frequently in other CNS embryonal neoplasms, including PNET, MB and AT/RT. We believe that ependymoblastoma as a diagnosis is neither precise nor specific and that it is time once and for all to retire this diagnosis from the lexicon of neuropathology. PMID:19120373

Virtual colleagues, virtually colleagues--physicians' use of Twitter: a population-based observational study  

PubMed Central

Objective To investigate potential violations of patient confidentiality or other breaches of medical ethics committed by physicians and medical students active on the social networking site Twitter. Design Population-based cross-sectional observational study. Setting The social networking site Twitter (Swedish-speaking users, n=298819). Population Physicians and medical students (Swedish-speaking users, n=237) active on the social networking site Twitter between July 2007 and March 2012. Main outcome measure Postings that reflect unprofessional behaviour and ethical breaches among physicians and medical students. Results In all, 237 Twitter accounts were established as held by physicians and medical students and a total of 13?780 tweets were analysed by content. In all, 276 (1.9%) tweets were labelled as ‘unprofessional’. Among these, 26 (0.2%) tweets written by 15 (6.3%) physicians and medical students included information that could violate patient privacy. No information on the personal ID number or names was disclosed, but parts of the patient documentation or otherwise specific indicatory information on patients were found. Unprofessional tweets were more common among users writing under a pseudonym and among medical students. Conclusions In this study of physicians and medical students on Twitter, we observed potential violations of patient privacy and other breaches of medical ethics. Our findings underline that every physician and medical student has to consider his or her presence on social networking sites. It remains to be investigated if the introduction of social networking site guidelines for medical professionals will improve awareness.

Confronting Barriers, Creating Solutions: Parental Leave for Junior Colleagues  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Barriers to instituting parental leave policies for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are present at the departmental, university/institute, and federal levels. Within departments, collegial persuasion involving both those affected and senior leadership can be successful in overcoming sociological resistance, although financial constraints may be harder to surmount. Universities are constrained by internal policies and the structure of their fringe benefits pools which are in turn limited by reimbursement rates that must be negotiated with their federal oversight agencies. Federal effort-reporting rules also complicate the situation. I will describe the type of creative solutions that can work at the departmental level, as well as discussing the actions the Society is pursuing in an attempt to lower the external barriers to local action.

`Once more unto the breach, dear friends'. Editorial Introduction  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In introducing his Special Issue, the guest-editor identifies different usages of the term `UPE', also reflected in the contributions to the Issue, and comments on the implications of this diversity in the context of nations' efforts to achieve it. `Real' and `bogus' UPE are distinguished and the alternative concept of basic education considered. Implementation of UPE, an immensely demanding undertaking, requires adequate information, genuine commitment and close co-operation — at all levels and from all concerned; equally, it depends on administrative ability, organization of training, and political motivation, flexibility and sincerity. Recognising the demands and costs of UPE, the reasons for commitment to it are examined (and illustrated from the case of Nigeria) — and the feasibility of successful implementation, e.g., by the year 2000, assessed. Alternatives exist, both in concept and practice, but seem unlikely to commend themselves. Nevertheless, as is stressed in the articles, lessons may be learned from experience already gained concerning the effectiveness of such factors as: greater community involvement in providing and controlling schools; more emphasis on school health; closer relationships between central and local planning; alternative structures for older learners or drop-outs; the shortening of instructional time; and increased research and greater investment in training for the teaching of basic skills at primary level. Without a radical change of attitude, particularly with respect to this last priority, efforts to achieve even literacy, the first goal of UPE, are being seriously undermined.

Contextualisation in the revised dual representation theory of PTSD: a response to Pearson and colleagues.  

PubMed

Three recent studies (Pearson, 2012; Pearson, Ross, & Webster, 2012) purported to test the revised dual representation theory of posttraumatic stress disorder (Brewin, Gregory, Lipton, & Burgess, 2010) by manipulating the amount of additional information accompanying traumatic stimulus materials and assessing the effect on subsequent intrusive memories. Here we point out that these studies involve a misunderstanding of the meaning of "contextual" within the theory, such that the manipulation would be unlikely to have had the intended effect and the results are ambiguous with respect to the theory. Past and future experimental tests of the theory are discussed. PMID:24041427

Quantum systems as embarrassed colleagues: what do tax evasion and state tomography have in common?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Quantum state estimation (a.k.a. "tomography") plays a key role in designing quantum information processors. As a problem, it resembles probability estimation -- e.g. for classical coins or dice -- but with some subtle and important discrepancies. We demonstrate an improved classical analogue that captures many of these differences: the "noisy coin." Observations on noisy coins are unreliable -- much like soliciting sensitive information such as ones tax preparation habits. So, like a quantum system, it cannot be sampled directly. Unlike standard coins or dice, whose worst-case estimation risk scales as 1/N for all states, noisy coins (and quantum states) have a worst-case risk that scales as 1/?N and is overwhelmingly dominated by nearly-pure states. The resulting optimal estimation strategies for noisy coins are surprising and counterintuitive. We demonstrate some important consequences for quantum state estimation -- in particular, that adaptive tomography can recover the 1/N risk scaling of classical probability estimation.

Teaching aldosterone regulation and basic scientific principles using a classic paper by Dr. James O. Davis and colleagues.  

PubMed

Classroom discussion of scientific articles can be an effective means of teaching scientific principles and methodology to both undergraduate and graduate science students. The availability of classic papers from the American Physiological Society Legacy Project has made it possible to access articles dating back to the early portions of the 20th century. In this article, we discuss a classic paper from the laboratory of Dr. James O. Davis on the regulation of aldosterone synthesis from the adrenal zona glomerulosa cell. Dr. Davis has conducted much of the seminal research investigating the renin-angiotensin system and the regulation of aldosterone release by angiotensin II. In addition to a characterization of the effects of ACTH on aldosterone regulation, this study is useful for discussing the basic principles of negative feedback pathways of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. This study also provides examples of early bioassay techniques for the detection of angiotensin II and of the importance of quantitative measurements when investigating physiological responses. Three figures and one table are reproduced from the original article along with a series of discussion questions designed to facilitate discovery learning. PMID:17108240

NeuronDepot: keeping your colleagues in sync by combining modern cloud storage services, the local file system, and simple web applications  

PubMed Central

Neuroscience today deals with a “data deluge” derived from the availability of high-throughput sensors of brain structure and brain activity, and increased computational resources for detailed simulations with complex output. We report here (1) a novel approach to data sharing between collaborating scientists that brings together file system tools and cloud technologies, (2) a service implementing this approach, called NeuronDepot, and (3) an example application of the service to a complex use case in the neurosciences. The main drivers for our approach are to facilitate collaborations with a transparent, automated data flow that shields scientists from having to learn new tools or data structuring paradigms. Using NeuronDepot is simple: one-time data assignment from the originator and cloud based syncing—thus making experimental and modeling data available across the collaboration with minimum overhead. Since data sharing is cloud based, our approach opens up the possibility of using new software developments and hardware scalabitliy which are associated with elastic cloud computing. We provide an implementation that relies on existing synchronization services and is usable from all devices via a reactive web interface. We are motivating our solution by solving the practical problems of the GinJang project, a collaboration of three universities across eight time zones with a complex workflow encompassing data from electrophysiological recordings, imaging, morphological reconstructions, and simulations.

Age of linear enamel hypoplasia formation based on Massler and colleagues' and Reid and Dean's standards in a Polish sample dated to 13th-18th century CE.  

PubMed

In the study of enamel hypoplasia formation ages basically two standards of dental development are being applied. According to some authors, different methods produce different results, thus it is critical to decide which method to use. This study focuses on the comparison of three methods for estimating ages of linear enamel hypoplasia (LEH) formation. The skeletal material derives from three burial grounds localized on the territory of Poland, dated to 13th-18th c. CE. In total 642 teeth of 77 individuals were qualified for the study. The position of LEHs on the crown surface was measured and then converted to age at formation using the regression equations proposed by Goodman and Rose, Goodman and Song, and the data provided by Reid and Dean. There were 51.9% of individuals and 17.9% of teeth affected by LEH. The lowest age estimates were provided by the Goodman and Rose's method then higher by the Goodman and Song's method and the highest using the Reid and Dean's data. The age ranges and peaks of LEH provided by the three methods differed more for the maxillary than for the mandibular teeth. Crown formation ages supplied by Reid and Dean account for intra- and inter-tooth as well as inter-population variation in the timing of tooth development and also for variation in crown heights. This approach undoubtedly increases reliability of the results. Thus, it seems advisable to use the Reid and Dean's standard when calculating ages of enamel hypoplasia formation. PMID:24767821

NeuronDepot: keeping your colleagues in sync by combining modern cloud storage services, the local file system, and simple web applications.  

PubMed

Neuroscience today deals with a "data deluge" derived from the availability of high-throughput sensors of brain structure and brain activity, and increased computational resources for detailed simulations with complex output. We report here (1) a novel approach to data sharing between collaborating scientists that brings together file system tools and cloud technologies, (2) a service implementing this approach, called NeuronDepot, and (3) an example application of the service to a complex use case in the neurosciences. The main drivers for our approach are to facilitate collaborations with a transparent, automated data flow that shields scientists from having to learn new tools or data structuring paradigms. Using NeuronDepot is simple: one-time data assignment from the originator and cloud based syncing-thus making experimental and modeling data available across the collaboration with minimum overhead. Since data sharing is cloud based, our approach opens up the possibility of using new software developments and hardware scalabitliy which are associated with elastic cloud computing. We provide an implementation that relies on existing synchronization services and is usable from all devices via a reactive web interface. We are motivating our solution by solving the practical problems of the GinJang project, a collaboration of three universities across eight time zones with a complex workflow encompassing data from electrophysiological recordings, imaging, morphological reconstructions, and simulations.

Differential Effects in Cardiovascular Markers between High-Dose Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker Monotherapy and Combination Therapy of ARB with Calcium Channel Blocker in Hypertension (DEAR Trial)  

PubMed Central

Background/Aims. Arterial stiffness is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This study was conducted to determine the effect of olmesartan (OLM) and azelnidipine (AZL) on arterial stiffness using the cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI), which is a novel blood pressure (BP)-independent marker for arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients. Methods. Fifty-two consecutive hypertensive patients were randomly assigned either to a group treated with OLM monotherapy or to a group treated with OLM and AZL combination therapy. Clinical and biological parameters were measured before and 12 months after the start of this study. Results. Both therapies significantly and similarly reduced BP, augmentation index, and plasma aldosterone levels. The combination therapy significantly decreased CAVI and serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL-C) levels and these reductions were significantly greater than those produced with monotherapy. No significant differences in metabolic parameters were observed between the two therapies. Conclusion. The combination therapy with OLM and AZL had beneficial effects on arterial stiffness assessed by CAVI, LDL-C, and metabolism, despite the similar BP reduction, compared with OLM monotherapy. Since these markers are known to influence the future risk of cardiovascular events, combination therapy with OLM and AZL could be a useful choice for treating hypertensive patients.

[Dear young psychiatrists: proposal of a new way of working (NWW) for Japanese psychiatrists through integration of academia and the community].  

PubMed

Not only physical but also mental health is the wish of every individual, and this is a fundamental human right as a citizen. Rather than the pursuit of economic wealth, the future goal of society should consist of improving each individual's mental "capital" in the different stages of life, which will ultimately lead to an increase in the level of mental wealth in society as a whole. The disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) of psychiatric disorders have outweighed diseases such as cancers and cardiovascular disorders, and the early detection and prevention of psychiatric disorders has become a top-priority issue. We, psychiatrists, are thus professionals markedly responsible for public wealth. Psychiatric disorders and a person with a disorder should be understood from pluralistic perspectives; universality as a brain disorder and, on the other hand, individuality as a person who lives a personal life in pursuit of personal values. Here, I redefine psychiatry as medical science of the brain, mind, and social life, where a balanced model between medical treatment in academia and social support in the community may constitute a new way of working (NWW) for psychiatrists. It is time to launch NWW for young psychiatrists to make a true difference for individuals with psychiatric disorders. To do so, they need to achieve a deeper understanding of developmental processes of establishing self and values, and the significance of living in the community and employment for human beings.

Jan Hendrik Oort (1900-1992)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With the death of Jan Hendrik Oort on 1992 November 5, at the age of 92 years, the astronomical community lost one of its most distinguished members. In a span of seventy years of creative activity, Oort witnessed, and contribued to, the development of our picture of the cosmos from one limited to ill defined borders of our Galaxy, to the remote depths of the universe. He shared his intellectual gifts, his inspiration and his enthusiasm for the science of his choice with numerous colleagues, young and old all over the world. For many of them, his passing away means a loss of a dear and highly respected friend. Oort was the Cathern Wolfe Bruce medallist of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific in 1942, now a half century ago!. (SECTION: Obituary)

NSF's Response to Gulf Oil Spill  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Under its statutory authority, the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) is using its Rapid Response Research (RAPID) funding mechanism to support research on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. NSF issued a “dear colleague” letter on 27 May reminding the U.S. academic research community that RAPID awards are a special grant mechanism developed specifically by the foundation to respond to unanticipated events such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, and other natural and man-made disasters where a timely response is essential to achieving research results. To date, NSF has received more than 90 unsolicited proposals for research and related activities from scientists and engineers at U.S. academic institutions wanting to launch or continue research in the Gulf of Mexico and along its shorelines related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. On the basis of reviews from NSF program officer teams, the foundation has funded 46 awards so far in fiscal year 2010, totaling $4.6 million for research and $2.5 million for ship costs.

Critical Review of a Journal Article: An Assessment Activity  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Students receive a "Dear Colleague" letter requesting the review of a journal article in the same format as would be received from an Assistant Editor of a major scholarly journal. The letter outlines the requirements of the review and the due date. Students also receive the review forms typically provided by a given journal (I've provided forms from the Geological Society of America Bulletin and American Mineralogist for use in an upper division course in Mineralogy, Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology. The GSA Bulletin form is better suited for manuscripts that report on articles that have a significant field or tectonic component; the American Mineralogist form is better suited for articles that focus on more analytical, theoretical, or computational applications in mineralogy and petrology. In an upper division petrology class, I typically select articles for review that integrate numerous aspects of topics we've recently covered in class; tectonic setting, field relations, petrography, whole-rock geochemistry, geo- and thermochronology, mineral chemistry (for PTt calculations), stable isotope geochemistry, etc. My goal is to help students see how these multiple lines of evidence must be integrated into a coherent geologic interpretation of geologic process or history. Modify the letter with the request for review and review forms to emphasize the particular course goals, content, and expectations for your own course.

Spectral analysis of point-vortex dynamics: first application to vortex polygons in a circular domain  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The present study addresses the classical problem of the dynamics and stability of a cluster of N-point vortices of equal strength arranged in a polygonal configuration (‘N-vortex polygons’). In unbounded domains, such N-vortex polygons are unconditionally stable for N\\leqslant 7. Confinement in a circular domain tightens the stability conditions to N\\leqslant 6 and a maximum polygon size relative to the domain radius. This work expands on existing studies on stability and integrability by a first giving an exploratory spectral analysis of the dynamics of N vortex polygons in circular domains. Key to this is that the spectral signature of the time evolution of vortex positions reflects their qualitative behaviour. Expressing vortex motion by a generic evolution operator (the so-called Koopman operator) provides a rigorous framework for such spectral analyses. This paves the way to further differentiation and classification of point-vortex behaviour beyond stability and integrability. The concept of Koopman-based spectral analysis is demonstrated for N-vortex polygons. This reveals that conditional stability can be seen as a local form of integrability and confirms an important generic link between spectrum and dynamics: discrete spectra imply regular (quasi-periodic) motion; continuous (sub-)spectra imply chaotic motion. Moreover, this exposes rich nonlinear dynamics as intermittency between regular and chaotic motion and quasi-coherent structures formed by chaotic vortices. Dedicated to the memory of Slava Meleshko, a dear friend and inspiring colleague.

Teaching Scientists to Fish, as Inspired by Jack Dymond  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is almost inconceivable that as Jack Dymond's graduate student for eight years, I never mastered the skill of fly-fishing, a pursuit so near and dear to his heart. In fact, Jack did inspire me, not to tie flies and cast, but eventually to teach fellow scientists to fish. The work I'll present - connecting scientists and educators to achieve societal benefit - is profoundly influenced by Jack's dedication to applying scientific understanding and critical thinking to societal issues. With colleagues in the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE), http://www.cosee.net/, I enable scientists to efficiently make meaningful contributions to educational outreach. A key goal of the multi-Center, national COSEE Network is helping scientists build the skills and acquire the resources needed to share their science with diverse audiences. At Scripps, we are piloting an innovative approach to helping scientists meet funding agencies' broader impact requirements. Key elements of the approach include: 1) services to identify educational outreach options that best fit scientists' research and preferences; 2) assistance establishing partnerships with educational outreach providers who have the skills and resources to develop and implement effective programs and exhibits; and 3) nuts and bolts (line and fly) assistance writing proposal text, drafting budgets, and coordinating with institutional business offices to ensure that the proposed educational outreach effort is compelling and sufficiently funded. Where does the fishing lesson come in? We facilitators of scientist-educator partnerships empower scientists to launch enduring collaborations. Once comfortable working with top-notch educational organizations, scientists can tap these resources, project after project, often with little or no additional involvement on our part. Our initial investment in brokering the relationships is richly rewarded. By helping scientists get started, it's as if we are teaching them to fish, rather than merely giving them fish.

HSTOF ENA observations and energetic ion distributions in the heliosheath  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Context. Launched in 1996, HSTOF on board SOHO was the first instrument to detect the energetic neutral atoms (ENA) from the heliosheath. After mid 2003, the field of view of HSTOF was restricted to the flank sectors of the heliosheath, in which region the energetic ion distributions are still unknown. Interpretation of these data requires understanding of the energetic ion transport in the inner heliosheath. Aims: We update the HSTOF ENA hydrogen and helium spectra by adding the results from the recent (2006-2010) measurements. We calculate the energetic ion distributions in a numerical model of the heliosheath and use them as a basis for interpreting the HSTOF ENA observations, in particular those of the flank sectors. Methods: The hydrogen and helium ENA spectra were derived from the HSTOF observations of two 90°-wide ecliptic longitude sectors around the crosswind directions. The energetic ion distributions in the heliosheath were calculated in a simple model of the heliosphere, assuming that the main acceleration occurs at the termination shock. The effects of different processes (charge-exchange loss, adiabatic acceleration, parallel diffusion and escape across the boundary) were determined with different assumptions about the boundary conditions and the transport parameters. The resulting ion distributions were used to calculate the ENA fluxes, which can be compared with the observations by HSTOF and other instruments. Results: The energetic ion density in the flank sectors of the heliosphere is lower than in the forward (upwind) sector. As a result, the contribution of the flanks of the heliosheath to the production of ENA is not directly proportional to the thickness of the heliosheath, but instead is comparable to the contribution of the forward sector, which agrees with the HSTOF data. The HSTOF ENA flux intensity is nevertheless significantly lower than the model calculations. Near the heliopause there appears a region of low energetic ion density caused by the charge-exchange and the escape losses. We dedicate this work to the memory of our longstanding coworker and dear colleague Karin Bamert.

XVII International Conference on the Use of Computers in Radiation Therapy (ICCR 2013)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Editorial Dear colleagues, From a professional perspective there is nothing quite as enjoyable as attending a good conference with colleagues that share not only interest for the same topic but also a similar vision for their field of work. Proceedings cannot replace the direct contact and lively conversations between participants who are at the same time at the same place sharing ideas and discussion. However, proceedings complement the actual conference by 1. giving the ideas, research findings and debates which characterise the conference lasting presence 2. giving participants an opportunity to refresh their memory about issues they would like to follow up on and 3. providing an opportunity for others who were not able to attend the meeting to share in the thoughts and issues discussed at the conference. For the proceedings of the International Conferences on the Use of Computers in Radiation Therapy (ICCR) all this has been important in the past as the high citation rates for ICCR proceedings show. We hope that also the present proceedings will appeal to participants and others who are interested in cancer and ways to treat patients affected by it. It is exciting to note that what sounded like a small niche field (''Computers in Radiation Therapy'') has become a very broad forum to discuss all aspects of cancer diagnosis and therapy. Of particular interest for the 17th ICCR have been data and how to collect, organise and use it effectively. This is relevant for most areas in medicine and we believe that radiation therapy with its focus on evidence based practice and measurable and standardised activities has an important and possibly leading role to play. The 100 manuscripts combined in the present proceedings can hopefully contribute to this. The proceedings are organised into five different streams which reflect the foci of the conference: • Dose Calculation • Imaging for treatment planning and Motion Management • Treatment planning and optimisation • Verification, Risk assessment and IGRT • Trials, registries and more Each of the streams had its own theme editor and we would like to thank Peter Greer, Sarah Gulliford, Tomas Janssen, Joerg Lehmann and Peter Metcalfe and for their invaluable contributions. I believe we all shared the joy of reading the huge variety of manuscripts which reflect a dynamic field and a truly international authorship. All manuscripts have been peer reviewed by at least two independent referees. Still, proceedings are different from journal articles. The focus of the proceedings is on interest for others, novelty and creativity. While trying to ensure a common format to all contributions we have also aimed to maintain the style and approach of the individual authors. We would like to thank all authors and reviewers for their contribution to these ICCR proceedings. On behalf of the editorial team we would like to invite you to explore the proceedings and hope that you enjoy reading them as much as we did editing them. Yours sincerely Annette Haworth and Tomas Kron Editors, Proceedings of the 17th ICCR

Dear Colleagues and Friends,on behalf of the Publishers, the Editorial Office, and the Editors of physica status solidi we wish you all the best for the coming year 2006! It is our sincere hope that your personal and professional experience with our journal has been a positive one and that you will continue to choose physica status solidi for the publication of your scientific findings in solid state physics also in the future.In doing so, you will be in increasingly good company! As a matter of fact, 2005 has been a year of exceptional growth in the number of manuscripts submitted to physica status solidi . Thus, the number of Original Papers which have reached our Editorial Office in Berlin has increased by as much as 30% compared to the long term average over the last ten years. For the Rapid Research Letter section, the corresponding increase has been even more impressive: more than +100% just in the last two years. We view this development as a confirmation of our longstanding efforts to ensure a timely publication service of high scientific quality. One relevant indicator for the high scientific standards expected from articles which are submitted for publication in physica status solidi is the average acceptance rate, which currently is less than 40%. This rate has continuously decreased from a value of about 60% ten years ago and bears witness to our efforts to strive for quality rather than quantity.Also, physica status solidi has been able to continue its long tradition as a truly international journal, despite of the strong competition in an established field such as solid state physics. In 2005, submitted papers have originated almost equally from the Americas, Europe, and Asia, with a clearly growing contribution from China, India, and Japan. We are actively working together with our international Editorial Boards and the Regional Editors to maintain a reasonable balance among papers from different parts of the world. The increasing international visibility of physica status solidi is impressively documented by the ever rising numbers of article downloads via the internet: on the average, each of the 2000 articles published annually in physica status solidi is presently accessed about 100 times via the www.Finally, let me mention some other recent developments, which are not so directly visible from the outside. Thus, a new all electronic publishing system has become operative in our Berlin Editorial Office in 2005, which allows a more efficient and timely handling of manuscripts from submission to publication (www.manuscriptXpress.com) and is particularly valuable for the editing of conference proceedings (conferences.wiley-vch.de). In addition, the functionality of the journal within the Wiley InterScience website has been enhanced by new features such as Citation Tracking. Together with the ongoing digitization of all physica status solidi issues since the 1960s, which is expected to be complete in 2006, this makes the physica status solidi homepage at Wiley InterScience a very valuable tool for literature search in solid state physics, past and present.

FOREWORD: Topics in Astroparticle and Underground Physics (TAUP 2009)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The eleventh meeting of the TAUP Workshop series, TAUP 2009, was held in Rome on 1-5 July 2009, organized by the INFN Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS). The workshop venue was originally L'Aquila. The earthquake of 6 April changed our plans. The earthquake killed about 300 people, wounded about 15,000, made homeless about 60,000 and destroyed a large part of the built environment, as well as essential infrastructures. The LNGS buildings were not seriously affected by the event, and the underground site not at all. But after the event most of the LNGS staff were homeless and the local hotels were damaged. So we were forced to move the Workshop to Rome, and found a good venue in the Angelicum, the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, in the very center of Rome. This University, founded in 1580, has its historical roots in the medieval House of Studies of the Dominican Order in Rome, and we think that all the TAUP participants enjoyed the spiritual atmosphere which emanated from the ancient walls of the building and the cloister. All the various aspects of our interdisciplinary field of research at the intersection of Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology, named Astroparticle Physics, have been covered: Dark Components of the Universe, Gravitational Waves, Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics, High Energy Astrophysics, Cosmic Rays and Gamma-Rays Astronomy. Exciting scientific results were presented and the main issues of the field debated in the plenary and parallel sessions. The program also included a Session on Outreach and Education, with contributions from major Laboratories, Experimental Collaborations and International Organizations. Unhappily, the sad news from Zaragoza of the passing of our dear colleague and friend Julio Morales, to whom these Proceedings are dedicated, marked the last day of the Workshop. On behalf of the Organizing Committee of TAUP 2009, we thank all the Speakers and Conveners, who made possible a detailed vision of the field, and the members of the International Advisory Committee and of the TAUP Steering Committee for assistance and advice on the scientific program. The support received by IUPAP and by the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) is gratefully acknowledged. Eugenio Coccia Luciano Pandola Nicolao Fornengo Roberto Aloisio A personal special thank you to my fellow organizers, to the Secretariat and to the LNGS staff. They worked successfully for TAUP 2009 in a difficult moment for our Laboratory, and even more, for several of them, in a difficult moment of their lives. Eugenio Coccia Chairman of the TAUP 2009 Organizing Committee TAUP 2009 has been conducted in accordance with IUPAP principles as stated in the ICSU-Document 'Universality of Science' (sixth edition, 1989) regarding the free circulation of scientists for international purposes. In particular, no bona fide scientist have been excluded from participation on the grounds of national origin, nationality, or political considerations unrelated to science.

Ladies and Gentlemen Dear Friends and Colleagues I welcome you at the 5th International Symposium `Quantum Theory and Symmetries, QTS5' in Valladolid as Chairman of the Conference Board of this biannual series. The aim of the series is to arrange an international meeting place for scientists working in theoretical and mathematical physics, in mathematics, in mathematical biology and chemistry and in other sciences for the presentation and discussion of recent developments in connection with quantum physics and chemistry, material science and related further fields, like life sciences and engineering, which are based on mathematical methods which can be applied to model and to understand microphysical and other systems through inherent symmetries in their widest sense. These systems include, e.g., foundations and extensions of quantum theory; quantum probability; quantum optics and quantum information; the description of nonrelativistic, finite dimensional and chaotic systems; quantum field theory, particle physics, string theory and quantum gravity. Symmetries in their widest sense describe properties of a system which could be modelled, e.g., through geometry, group theory, topology, algebras, differential geometry, noncommutative geometry, functional analysis and approximation methods; numerical evaluation techniques are necessary to connect such symmetries with experimental results. If you ask for a more detailed characterisation of this notion a hand waving indirect answer is: Collect titles and contents of the contributions of the proceedings of QTS4 and get a characterisation through semantic closure. Quantum theory and its Symmetries was and is a diversified and rapidly growing field. The number of and the types of systems with an internal symmetry and the corresponding mathematical models develop fast. This is reflected in the content of the five former international symposia of this series: The first symposium, QTS1-1999, was organized in Goslar (Germany) with 170 participants and 89 contributions in the proceedings; it was centred on the foundations and extensions of quantum theory, on quantisation methods and on q-algebras. In QTS2-2001 in Cracow (Poland) with 175 participants and 81 contributions; the main topics were applications of quantum mechanics, representations of algebras and group theoretical techniques in physics. In the symposium QTS3-2003 in Cincinnati (USA) with 145 participants and 92 contributions, quantum field theory, loop quantum gravity, string and brane theory was discussed. The focus in QTS4-2005 in Varna (Bulgaria) with 228 participant and 105 contributions, was on conformal field theory, quantum gravity, noncommutative geometry and quantum groups. Three proceedings volumes were published with World Scientific and one volume with Heron Press. The promising and interesting programme for QTS5-2007 in Valladolid (Spain) attracted more than 200 participants; the contributions will be published in a special issue of Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical and a volume of Journal of Physics: Conference Series. This shows the wide scope of symmetry in connection with quantum physics and related sciences. In the background of the symposia series is the Conference Board with presently 13 members. The Board encourages scientists and Institutions to present detailed proposals for a QTS symposium; it agrees to one proposal and is prepared to assist in matters of organisation; the local organisers are responsible for the scientific programme and for the organisation, including the budget. The Board decided that the next symposium QTS6 will be held 2009 at the University of Kentucky in Lexington (USA); Alan Shapere is the chairman of the Local Organizing committee. In the name of all of you I express my appreciation and my thanks to the members of the Local Organizing Committee of QTS5, especially to Mariano del Olmo. The programme is outstanding; it covers recent and new developments in our field. The organization is very effective and complete. We have all the necessary condition for a su

Zebrafish genetics gets the Scube on Hedgehog secretion  

PubMed Central

Inspired by a zebrafish mutation, two recent studies by Creanga and colleagues (pp. 1312–1325) and Tukachinsky and colleagues have shed new light on the way in which lipidated Hedgehog proteins are secreted and released from expressing cells, suggesting a model for the sequential action of the Disp and Scube2 proteins in this process.

Obituary: Lynne Karen Deutsch, 1954-2004  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

It is with deep sadness and regret that we note the passing of our dear friend and colleague Prof. Lynne K. Deutsch. Lynne died on 2 April 2004 after a protracted illness and lengthy battle with complications caused by the blood disease Polycythaemia Vera. Lynne was born in Chicago on 26 November 1956 to Victor and Ailsa Deutsch. She lived with her family in the town of Morton Grove, IL until she was 8 years old, when they moved to Beverly Hills, CA. She was an outgoing child who played basketball and excelled in her studies. She graduated from Beverly Hills High School at the age of 16 after completing all high school requirements in only three years. Lynne had a beautiful singing voice, and was in the chorus in high school and college. Lynne earned her first bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of California at Berkeley in 1977. She then returned to Berkeley and received a second bachelor's degree, this time in physics, in 1981. She was a graduate student and teaching assistant at MIT and earned an MS in physics from MIT in 1983. Lynne then attended the astronomy graduate program at Harvard University, where she earned her MA in 1985 and PhD in 1990. During her degree studies she began crafting mid-infrared instrumentation. These instruments were destined to be used by a host of eager observers to discover, identify, and study many emissions from the Solar System, and galactic and extragalactic sources. Lynne was a National Research Council Post-doctoral Fellow at NASA Ames Research Center from 1990 - 1992, where she played an important role in the development of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory/University of Arizona Mid-Infrared Array Camera (MIRAC), a well-known and much sought after instrument frequently used in studies of Mercury, Jupiter, the Moon, planetary nebulae, star formation regions, galactic center, young stellar objects, and extragalactic objects. After leaving NASA Ames Research Center, Lynne taught for several years (1993-96) at Smith College where she had a significant impact on undergraduate research, especially for women, whom she enjoyed mentoring. Lynne joined the faculty in the Astronomy Department of Boston University in 1996 where she taught instrumentation principles and techniques to undergraduate and graduate students. Over the course of her faculty career, she received numerous research grants and fellowships that were used to support her research, her students, and her postdoctoral associates. She was the principal investigator of Boston University's advanced technologies and instrumentation program MIRABU: A Mid-Infrared Array. As her health declined and the rigors of a full teaching schedule became unacceptably taxing, Lynne took a leave of absence from Boston University and returned to Harvard University and the Center for Astrophysics in 2001. There she became a very active member of the Infrared Group in the OIR Division and a member of the IRAC/Spitzer Space Telescope team. Her research in infrared astronomy covered many areas including star formation, planetary and protoplanetary nebulae, solar system objects, the interstellar medium and infrared-luminous galaxies. Her most recent research with the Infrared Array Camera (IRAC) on the Spitzer Space Telescope concentrated on high-mass star formation and the related evolution of the interstellar medium. In her short life, Lynne made many devoted friends and colleagues and was active in encouraging school-age girls to pursue their interests in the sciences. In her short career, she published more than seventy-five articles. She was an outstanding observer and instrumentalist, whose promising career was tragically cut short. Lynne was also a devoted mother and wife, and, while still well, she found the time to be an active participant in her son's elementary school. She is very greatly missed by her family. She is survived by her husband Douglas Sondak, PhD and her son Reed Deutsch-Sondak who live in Acton, MA, and her parents and sister Judith who reside in California. Lynne will be forever missed by her family, f

Spliceosome activation: U4 is the path, stem I is the goal, and Prp8 is the keeper. Let's cheer for the ATPase Brr2!  

PubMed Central

During pre-mRNA splicing, the spliceosome is activated for catalysis by unwinding base-paired U4/U6 small nuclear RNAs, a step that must be precisely timed. We know that unwinding requires the ATPase Brr2, but the mechanism and regulation of unwinding have been understood poorly. In the November 1, 2012, issue of Genes & Development, Hahn and colleagues (pp. 2408–2421) and Mozaffari-Jovin and colleagues (pp. 2422–2434) defined a pathway for U4/U6 unwinding. Moreover, Mozaffari-Jovin and colleagues suggested a mechanism for regulating Brr2.

Concerning the limit on the mean mass distribution of galaxies from their gravitational lens effect

Tyson and colleagues deduced bounds on the mass distribution in galaxies, from the (unobserved) distortion of background galaxy images by the gravitational field of foreground galaxies. The authors have checked how critical is their assumption that the background galaxies are at an infinite distance. When the distance distribution of the foreground and background galaxies is taken into account, the upper bounds on the rotation velocities are increased (quite considerably) above those published by Tyson and colleagues in 1984.

Fourth-integral resonance study on Alladin at SRC

The fourth-integral betatron resonance driven by sextupoles was studied on the electron storage ring Aladdin at SRC. The resonance feature of capturing the phase space particles in the resonance islands was dearly demonstrated. In a computer simulation, the finite beam size is simulated by multi-particle tracking and the decoherence of the betatron oscillation was shown to agree well with experiment observation.

An evaluation of EPA’s National-Scale Air Toxics Assessment (NATA): Comparison with benzene measurements in Detroit, Michigan  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The U.S. EPA periodically evaluates ambient concentrations, human exposures, and health risks for 180 hazardous air pollutants plus diesel particulate matter using modeled estimates from the National-Scale Air Toxics Assessment (NATA). NATA publishes estimates at the spatial resolution of U.S. Census tracts, which are subdivisions of a county. These local scale, model-predicted estimates from NATA are used extensively in community-based assessments; however, evaluation of NATA's ambient concentrations and human exposure estimates against measurement data has been limited to date. This paper compares modeled annual average benzene results from the 2002 NATA with measured results from the 2004 to 2007 Detroit Exposure and Aerosol Research Study (DEARS) as a case study of the quality of NATA results. NATA model estimates support community-scale characterization and assessment. Benzene is particularly important as it was estimated by the 2002 NATA as the largest single air toxic pollutant in terms of cancer risk in the U.S. We found that the average ambient concentrations of benzene predicted by NATA were within 5 percent, on average, of the 24-h integrated average ambient concentrations measured in DEARS. The NATA human exposure estimates, which include only outdoor sources for benzene, were, on average, approximately half the measured breathing zone concentrations from DEARS. Our analyses support that the factors driving higher DEARS personal benzene concentrations relative to the NATA predicted exposure values are likely due, at least in part, to indoor sources. This work points to further community-scale modeling research to improve characterizations and assessments of human exposures.

A Passion for the Little Things Among the Planets: The Poor Man's Grand Tour of the Solar System.  

PubMed

If mass were the only criterion, asteroids, satellites, and the smallest planet, Pluto, would not rate much attention. But they often held center stage early this month when planetary scientists gathered in Providence, Rhode Island, for the annual meeting of the Division of Planetary Science of the American Astronomical Society. Here is a selection of the news about the lesser bodies that so many researchers hold dear. PMID:17806378

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Modeling Neurodevelopment Outcomes and Ethylmercury Exposure from Thimerosal-Containing Vaccines  

Microsoft Academic Search

Dear Editor, The neurotoxic effects of ethylmercury (EtHg) accidentally consumed in Iraq were sufficient to withdraw ethylmercury- containing fungicides as seed dressing. Despite that, not only did thimerosal continue to be used in pharmaceutical preparations but also toxicological interest in EtHg-derived substances diminished considerably and was never addressed with regard to the small quantities used as a vaccine preservative. Thimerosal-containing

EDITORIAL: Quanta and leaps  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

On Sunday 7 October 1900 Herr Doktor Heinrich Rubens and his wife dropped in on the Planck's Berlin household for tea and some (inevitable) shop-talk. Rubens and his colleague Ferdinand Kurlbaum had been working on an experimental project dear to Max Planck's heart: the variation of intensity with frequency of the radiation from hot objects. They had developed state-of-the-art techniques for taking measurements in the infrared, and Rubens outlined their latest results, due to be presented to the Prussian Academy on 25 October. Between teatime and suppertime Planck had deduced the final version of the radiation law. He was able to work so quickly because he had been working on the problem of reconciling the obviously incomplete Rayleigh law - and various other versions - for many years. The new data confirmed his fairly ad hoc reconciliation of electromagnetic theory and statistical thermodynamics and he sent the outline of his new relationship to Rubens by postcard the same evening. Almost as quick as an e-mail. This itself was a highly important step forward in physics - but what was really outstanding and original was yet to follow, after `a few weeks of the most strenuous work of my life', said the 42 year-old Planck. He realized the significance of his work: `Today I have made a discovery as important as that of Newton,' he confided to his son. This was his based on his determination to find a physical meaning for what had started off as `fictional' mathematical aids to help him derive his formula. The logic compelled him, somewhat reluctantly it appears, to accept that the vibrating objects in a hot body responsible for the oscillating electromagnetic waves they emitted could change in energy only by small discrete amounts: energy packets (quanta) of a size linked to frequency by the relationship E = hf. Not many people took a lot of notice of all this. One did - the obscure Albert Einstein who generalized it in his annus mirabilis 1905 to show that the oscillating light `waves' had to be quantized as well. Several articles in this issue of Physics Education celebrate the first year of the quantum, 1900. I am grateful and beholden to Board Member and co-editor Gren Ireson for his contacts and nomination of the various contributors. It does seem strange, however, a full century after its discovery full of its amazing success that the essential quantum nature of practically everything is still kept hidden from school students, in the UK at least. Let's see what happens in the coming century. Now for another quantum leap. This is the last issue of Physics Education that I shall have the honour of editing. In fact, I shall leap into historical obscurity as the very last honorary editor. Great efforts by your Editorial Board - over a fair number of years! - have resulted in a radical reorganizing of both the journal and the way it is produced. It's been an interesting five years, a time of falling numbers but quite radical innovations in post-16 physics education. IoPP and the IoP are working together to revitalize what may have been seen by many as a staid if respectable and authoritative publication. We shall keep the authority and even respectability but hope to liven things up a bit. The new editor is Kerry Parker of Sheffield College. She will take on a stronger role than I and my predecessors have had, and will be working at IoPP in Bristol two days a week. There are many obvious advantages in this, and I look forward to seeing the new design and approach that will start with the January 2000 issue. So, it's goodbye from me - and also from the unsung heroine of Physics Education for even longer. Managing Editor Dr Jill Membrey has been doing the really hard work at Bristol for many years, but is now moving on to other things at IoPP. I am extremely grateful for the highly professional care and support she has provided for myself and the Editorial Board over the years. The new Managing Editor is Andrea Pomroy, who arrives at a particularly interesting point in time!

Today I'm Grieving a Physician Suicide  

PubMed Central

An estimated 250 physicians will commit suicide this year. In this essay, the author shares her grief and guilt over the suicide of a colleague while reflecting on both the scale of this largely unacknowledged problem and the stigma that prevents our profession from adequately addressing it. Physicians are as vulnerable to depression as is the general population, but they seek care at lower rates and commit suicide at higher rates. Fears regarding loss of professional stature and respect often prevent depressed physicians from accessing needed mental health services. This same stigma can also compound the mourning process of the colleagues and family of those physicians who complete suicide. As a profession, physicians must strengthen existing resources for impaired colleagues and work collaboratively to destigmatize treatment for mental illnesses.

Commentary: On regulation and medical education: sociology, learning, and accountability.  

PubMed

The topic of regulation is commonplace in society, yet it seems to receive little explicit consideration in discussions on undergraduate medical education. The accompanying articles by Hauer and colleagues, White and colleagues, and Bloodgood and colleagues approach the topic of regulation from several different viewpoints. In this commentary, we too approach the topic of regulation from several different viewpoints: sociology, learning (self-regulated learning), and accountability. In this commentary, we present both theoretical and practical issues with the aim of initiating an open, scholarly discussion in the field of medical education. Ultimately, we hope other medical educators will seriously contemplate the questions raised and, more importantly, will consider employing these theoretical perspectives into future research efforts.

The changing pattern of pathology in black South Africans.  

PubMed

This article is part of a Festschrift honouring Professor H Koornhof on his 80th birthday. My colleague and friend of over 40 years, a truly great man. An internationally recognised microbiologist, accorded great honours. A humanitarian, acutely sensitive to any suggestion of discrimination. I remember at one of the meetings of Heads of Departments which the then Director, Professor J Metz, regularly used to call, Hendrik enquired as to why white employees receive white payslips and black employees yellow payslips. This typified his caring and sensitivity. Hendrik, I consider it a privilege to have been your colleague for many years. I salute you. PMID:18250934

What's wrong with the debate on mesh surgery?  

PubMed

There is an increasingly acrimonious debate surrounding the use of anchored mesh in prolapse surgery. It is evident that clinicians and researchers working with this technology are under pressure from the public, from lawyers, regulators and colleagues. There is a risk that rapidly changing societal standards, championed by colleagues, lawyers and bureaucrats, will interfere with professional independence to such a degree that an entire new technology is lost before there has been time for clinical research to assess risks and benefits properly, before we learn which patients stand to benefit most, and before we get a chance to optimise implant design.

Factors associated with stress of conscience among emergency medical technicians in China.  

PubMed

The current study was designed to investigate factors related to stress of conscience among emergency medical technicians in China. One hundred and seventy-five doctors and nurses from emergency departments completed questionnaires measuring demographic information, two personality traits (i.e. responsibility and logical-affective orientation), stress of conscience and colleagues' stress of conscience. Important findings include the following: (i) Stress of conscience varied as a function of age, years of work, and marital status; (ii) Participants' stress of conscience was highly associated with colleagues' stress of conscience; and (iii) Both responsibility and a logical orientation were negatively associated with stress of conscience.

Playing statistical ouija board with commonality analysis: good questions, wrong assumptions.  

PubMed

Commonality analysis, as used by Hale, Fiorello, and colleagues (e.g., Hale, J. B., Fiorello, C. A., Kavanagh, J. A., Holdnack, J. A., & Aloe, A. M. [2007]. Is the demise of IQ interpretation justified? A response to special issue authors. Applied Neuropsychology, 21, 37-51), often leads to unjustified conclusions. Analyses of simulated datasets show that the highest-order commonality is a poor operationalization of the general factor of intelligence (g). Under commonly observed conditions, it is plausible that lower-order commonalities and unique components in a commonality analysis can consist entirely of g. Other problems with Hale and colleagues' (2007) analyses and interpretations are also discussed. PMID:18443940

A profile of women dentists.  

PubMed

This investigation examines female dentists' employment status, practice characteristics, annual income, job satisfaction, familial status, and relationships with colleagues and staff. A questionnaire was constructed using a yes/no response, short answer, and multiple choice format. The instrument was mailed to a random sample of 2,000 female dentists in September 1988. Fifty-four percent (1,086) of the sample population responded to the single mailing. More than 80% are satisfied with their dental career and current practice arrangement. The majority of these women described their working relationship with male and female colleagues and staff as excellent. PMID:2319065

Commentary: civil commitment statutes--40 years of circumvention.  

PubMed

There is a longstanding body of literature that describes how states' civil commitment statutes have been stretched or circumvented to accommodate institutional and systemic needs. The paper by Levitt and colleagues provides yet another example of this phenomenon: Arizona's use of its civil commitment statutes to detain unrestorable, incompetent criminal defendants for whom other provisions have not been developed. This commentary provides a brief overview of other examples of the stretching of commitment laws, providing a broader context for viewing the findings of Levitt and colleagues. PMID:20852222

Human Outreach through Physics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In this talk unique methods for human outreach through physics are described. The focus is on identifying young talented researchers and colleagues around the globe and nourish them for the purpose of diffusing physics knowledge. The goal can be achieved through the organization of international conferences, workshops, seminars, and colleagues, at different locations, invite young and experienced researchers to those meetings, invite them to your home institution, in addition to visiting their universities/laboratories for mentoring and exchanging physics knowledge. The scientific part shall deal with collective processes and coherent nonlinear effects in space and laboratory plasmas.

Two pathogenic species of Pythium: P. aphanidermatum and P. diclinum from a wheat field  

PubMed Central

During a survey of pathogenic and non-pathogenic Pythium spp. in different localities in Egypt, several isolates of Pythia were obtained and maintained on corn meal agar. Among these isolates, Pythium aphanidermatum and Pythium diclinum were obtained from rhizosphere of wheat plants grown in Dear Attia village, Minia, Egypt. Identification was made using morphological and molecular analyses. P. aphanidermatum and P. diclinum were able to cause reductions in emergence and adulating in wheat in laboratory scale. P. aphanidermatum appeared to be the most aggressive parasite under agar and pot experimental conditions.
