Title and Abstract Screening and Evaluation in Systematic Reviews (TASER): a pilot randomised controlled trial of title and abstract screening by medical students  

PubMed Central

Background The production of high quality systematic reviews requires rigorous methods that are time-consuming and resource intensive. Citation screening is a key step in the systematic review process. An opportunity to improve the efficiency of systematic review production involves the use of non-expert groups and new technologies for citation screening. We performed a pilot study of citation screening by medical students using four screening methods and compared students’ performance to experienced review authors. Methods The aims of this pilot randomised controlled trial were to provide preliminary data on the accuracy of title and abstract screening by medical students, and on the effect of screening modality on screening accuracy and efficiency. Medical students were randomly allocated to title and abstract screening using one of the four modalities and required to screen 650 citations from a single systematic review update. The four screening modalities were a reference management software program (EndNote), Paper, a web-based systematic review workflow platform (ReGroup) and a mobile screening application (Screen2Go). Screening sensitivity and specificity were analysed in a complete case analysis using a chi-squared test and Kruskal-Wallis rank sum test according to screening modality and compared to a final set of included citations selected by expert review authors. Results Sensitivity of medical students’ screening decisions ranged from 46.7% to 66.7%, with students using the web-based platform performing significantly better than the paper-based group. Specificity ranged from 93.2% to 97.4% with the lowest specificity seen with the web-based platform. There was no significant difference in performance between the other three modalities. Conclusions Medical students are a feasible population to engage in citation screening. Future studies should investigate the effect of incentive systems, training and support and analytical methods on screening performance.

The Role of Title, Metadata and Abstract in Identifying Clinically Relevant Journal Articles  

PubMed Central

Access to current clinical information involves searches of bibliographic databases, such as MEDLINE®, and subsequent evaluation of retrieval results for relevance to a specific clinical situation and quality of the reported research. We establish the amount of information that needs to be provided by an information retrieval system to assist healthcare practitioners in identifying clinically relevant information and evaluating its potential strength of evidence. We find 92% of titles informative enough for a practitioner to correctly classify publications as clinical, but not sufficient for classification of research quality. We suggest automatic organization of retrieval results into strength of evidence categories to supplement title-based judgments and provide quick access to the abstracts of the most promising articles. We find information in the abstracts sufficient to identify articles potentially immediately useful for clinical decision support. These findings are important to the design of information retrieval systems supporting small, low-bandwidth handheld computers. PMID:16779028

ABSTRACT  

E-print Network

The purpose of this study was to examine the change in self-esteem that date rape has upon a woman’s life, and the assimilation process that she experiences in order to raise her level of self-esteem to a more operative level. The need for a study like this was due to counselors and rape advocates having very little knowledge about the impact themselves, unless they have directly experienced rape. This study served as a basis in understanding the potentiality of rape based on appearance, the decrease in perceivediii self-esteem post date rape, and the phase of assimilation that occurs before the woman’s self-esteem is at a more operative level. There was very little research on the level of self-esteem prior to date rape, but the general population views appearance as self-esteem, there by creating an area for potentiality of rape based on appearance. Appearance also seems to tie into the perceived level of self-esteem post date rape. This creates a gray area in what is self-esteem and how it can be measured. To effectively have measured the level of perceived self-esteem both prior to and after the occurrence of date rape, the Tennessee Self Concept Scale was administered

Prefrontal cortex organization: dissociating effects of temporal abstraction, relational abstraction, and integration with FMRI.  

PubMed

The functions of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) underlie higher-level cognition. Varying proposals suggest that the PFC is organized along a rostral-caudal gradient of abstraction with more abstract representations/processes associated with more rostral areas. However, the operational definition of abstraction is unclear. Here, we contrasted 2 prominent theories of abstraction--temporal and relational--using fMRI. We further examined whether integrating abstract rules--a function common to each theory--recruited the PFC independently of other abstraction effects. While robust effects of relational abstraction were present in the PFC, temporal abstraction effects were absent. Instead, we found activations specific to the integration of relational rules in areas previously shown to be associated with temporal abstraction. We suggest that previous effects of temporal abstraction were due to confounds with integration demands. We propose an integration framework to understand the functions of the PFC that resolves discrepancies in prior data. PMID:23563962

We have studied Fe/TM multilayers (TM=Mo, Nb, Ru, Rh, Pd) using x-ray magnetic circular dischroism, magneto-optical Kerr effect, and x-ray diffraction. A diverse set of magnetic behaviors emerges from the analysis. We focus on the behavior which can be attributed to the existence of a physical interface between different chemical species. In particular, we have measured an enhanced Fe moment in some cases (TM=Ru, Mo, Rh, Pd) yet not in others (TM=Nb). These results will be discussed, including the relative orbital and spin moments and the effects of alloying at the interface. The measured induced moments in the TM layer will be presented as well where applicable. {copyright} {ital 1997 American Institute of Physics.}

The regulation of hazardous air pollutants by Title III of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 has a potential wide-ranging impact for the natural gas industry. Title III includes a list of 189 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) which are targeted for reduction. Under Title III, HAP emissions from major sources will be reduced by the implementation of maximum achievable control technology (MACT) standards. If the source is defined as a major source, it must also comply with Title V (operating permit) and Title VII (enhanced monitoring) requirements. This presentation will review Title III`s effect on the natural gas industry by discussing the regulatory requirements and schedules associated with MACT as well as the control technology options available for affected sources.

Effects of abstract and concrete antinuclear filmed presentations on participation in a petition campaign  

SciTech Connect

The goal was to examine the effects of abstract and concrete anti-nuclear images and previous political activity on interest in the topic of nuclear war and participation in an anti-nuclear petition campaign. Subjects were 254 undergraduate students at Hofstra University in three political science classes, three psychology classes and three communication classes: 128 males and 126 females. They were assigned by class to one of three image conditions: concrete, abstract, or no image. After completing a questionnaire measuring their previous level of political activity, students in the concrete condition saw The Last Epidemic, a 30-minute video depicting the aftermath of a nuclear explosion. Subjects in the abstract condition saw Preventing Nuclear War-First Step, a 30 minute video conveying factual information about missile systems and the arms race. Subjects in the no-image condition were not exposed to a video and served as controls. They were asked to respond to a short questionnaire that elicited emotional and intellectual reactions to the topic of nuclear war. After viewing the video tape, subjects in the abstract and concrete conditions responded to a brief questionnaire that elicited emotional and intellectual reactions to the videos. Subjects in all three conditions were asked to provide their names addresses if they were interested in receiving more information on this topic. Subjects who provided their name and addresses were mailed, within 24-hours, a one page petition advocating an anti-nuclear position. Recipients were asked to sign the petition, gather as many signature as possible, and return the petition. Participation was measured by the number of signatures gathered. Data were analyzed by analyzes of variance. The type of image had no effect on either interest or participation in the petition campaign. A modest positive relationship was found between previous political activity and interest.

Substituent effects on the reaction rates of hydrogen abstraction in the pyrolysis of phenethyl phenyl ethers  

SciTech Connect

We report reaction profiles and forward rate constants for hydrogen abstraction reactions occurring in the pyrolysis of methoxy-substituted derivatives of phenethyl phenyl ether (PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh, PPE), where the substituents are located on the aryl ether ring (PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh-X). We use density functional theory in combination with transition-state theory, and anharmonic corrections are included within the independent mode approximation. PPE is the simplest model of the abundant {beta}-O-4 linkage in lignin. The mechanism of PPE pyrolysis and overall product selectivities have been studied experimentally by one of us, which was followed by computational analysis of key individual hydrogen-transfer reaction steps. In the previous work, we have been able to use a simplified kinetic model based on quasi-steady-state conditions to reproduce experimental {alpha}/{beta} selectivities for PPE and PPEs with substituents on the phenethyl ring (X-PhCH{sub 2}CH{sub 2}OPh). This model is not applicable to PPE derivatives where methoxy substituents are located on the phenyl ring adjacent to the ether oxygen because of the strongly endothermic character of the hydrogen abstraction by substituted phenoxy radicals as well as the decreased kinetic chain lengths resulting from enhanced rates of the initial C?O homolysis step. Substituents decelerate the hydrogen abstraction by the phenoxy radical, while the influence on the benzyl abstraction is less homogeneous. The calculations provide insight into the contributions of steric and polar effects in these important hydrogen-transfer steps. We emphasize the importance of an exhaustive conformational space search to calculate rate constants and product selectivities. The computed rate constants will be used in future work to numerically simulate the pyrolysis mechanism, pending the calculation of the rate constants of all participating reactions.

Effect of Pumping Strategies on Pesticide Concentrations in Water Abstraction Wells  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Pesticide use in agriculture is one of the main sources of groundwater contamination and poses an important threat to groundwater abstraction. Pesticides have been detected in 37% of Danish monitoring wells sampled, with 12 % exceeding ground water guidelines. Field data captured in monitoring and pumping wells show that pesticide concentrations vary greatly in both time and space. This study aimed to use models to determine how pumping affects pesticide concentrations in water abtraction wells placed in two hypothetical aquifer systems; a homogeneous layered aquifer and a layered aquifer with a stream. Two pesticides with different application histories, chemical structure and properties were considered: an old pesticide, MCPP (Mecoprop) which is mobile and relatively persistent; and a newer pesticide, bentazone, which is persistent and low-sorbing. Numerical models of contaminant transport in a pumping well capture zone were constructed using COMSOL Multiphysics. A series of simulations were conducted to examine the effect of pumping strategies (constant versus varying pumping rate), pesticide properties and aquifer hydrogeology on the concentration in drinking water wells. The results of the simulations showed that the pumping rate can significantly affect the pesticide breakthrough time and maximum concentration at an abstraction well. The effect of the pumping rate on the pesticide concentration depended on the hydrogeology of the aquifer. For example, in a layered aquifer a high pumping rate resulted in a considerably different breakthrough than a low pumping rate, while in an aquifer with a stream the pumping rate had an insignificant effect on the breakthrough at the well. The pesticide properties and application history had a great impact on the observed pesticide concentrations. For example, for a non-sorbing and non-degradable pesticide (e.g., bentazone), the pumping rate was insignificant, while for a sorbing and degradable pesticide (e.g., MCPP) the pumping rate affected both the maximum concentration and the breakthrough time at the well. The findings of the study showed that variable pumping rates can generate temporal variability in the concentration at the well, similar to that observed in groundwater monitoring programmes. The results were also used to provide guidance on the design of pumping and remediation strategies for the long-term supply of safe potable groundwater. For example, if application of bentazone in a layered aquifer stops today, the concentration at the well will continue to grow for 20 years if a low pumping rate is applied, while the decay will be immediate for a high pumping rate. However, for both pumping rates it will take more than 50 years for the pesticide to be flushed out of the aquifer. This study concluded that well head management of pumping strategies is important for managing pesticide concentrations in water supply wells and that the approach developed can guide the selection of pesticde monitoring well locations for the protection of drinking water wells.

Abstract—Huge losses in apple production are caused by pathogens that cannot be seen shortly after harvest. After-harvest thermotherapy treatments can considerably improve control of storage diseases on apples and become an alternative to chemical pesticides. In the years 2010-2012 carried out research in this area. Apples of ‘Topaz ’ cultivar were harvested at optimal maturity time for long storage and subject to water bath treatment at 45, 50, 52, 55°C for 60, 120, 180 and 240 seconds. The control was untreated fruits. After 12 and 24 weeks and during so called simulated trade turnover the fruits were checked for their condition and the originators of diseases were determined by using the standard phytopathological methods. The most common originator of ‘Topaz’ apple infection during storage were the fungi of genus Gloeosporium. In this paper it was proven that for effective protection of ‘Topaz’ apples against diseases, thermotherapy by using water treatments at temperature range of 50-52°C is quite sufficient. Keywords—apple storage diseases, prolonged fruit storage, ‘Topaz ’ apples, thermotherapeutic treatments.

How the linguistic intergroup bias affects group perception: effects of language abstraction on generalization to the group.  

PubMed

The present research investigated whether the impact of the Linguistic Intergroup Bias (LIB; Maass, 1999) is related to the effects of linguistic abstraction on social attribution (Yzerbyt & Rogier, 2001). We did this by assessing the impact of abstract descriptions versus concrete descriptions on the generalization of a group member's behaviors to the whole group. A target's behaviors were more attributed to the group when the description was abstract than when it was concrete, and this effect of language abstraction was stronger when the description was positive than when it was negative. Our results provide an insight into how the LIB is involved in the perpetuation of intergroup bias. PMID:23421008

Global magnitude of visual impairment caused by uncorrected refractive errors in 2004 Serge Resnikoff, a Donatella Pascolini, a Silvio P Mariotti a & Gopal P Pokharel a Abstract Estimates of the prevalence of visual impairment caused by uncorrected refractive errors in 2004 have been determined at regional and global levels for people aged 5 years and over from recent published and unpublished surveys. The estimates were based on the prevalence of visual acuity of less than 6/18 in the better eye with the currently available refractive correction that could be improved to equal to or better than 6/18 by refraction or pinhole. A total of 153 million people (range of uncertainty: 123 million to 184 million) are estimated to be visually impaired from uncorrected refractive errors, of whom eight million are blind. This cause of visual impairment has been overlooked in previous estimates that were based on best-corrected vision. Combined with the 161 million people visually impaired estimated in 2002 according to best-corrected vision, 314 million people are visually impaired from all causes: uncorrected refractive errors become the main cause of low vision and the second cause of blindness. Uncorrected refractive errors can hamper performance at school, reduce employability and productivity, and generally impair quality of life. Yet the correction of refractive errors with appropriate spectacles is among the most cost-effective interventions in eye health care. The results presented in this paper help to unearth a formerly hidden problem of public health dimensions and promote policy development and implementation, programmatic decision-making and corrective interventions, as well as stimulate research.

Intrinsic noise and division cycle effects on an abstract biological oscillator  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Oscillatory dynamics are common in biological pathways, emerging from the coupling of positive and negative feedback loops. Due to the small numbers of molecules typically contained in cellular volumes, stochastic effects may play an important role in system behavior. Thus, for moderate noise strengths, stochasticity has been shown to enhance signal-to-noise ratios or even induce oscillations in a class of phenomena referred to as "stochastic resonance" and "coherence resonance," respectively. Furthermore, the biological oscillators are subject to influences from the division cycle of the cell. In this paper we consider a biologically relevant oscillator and investigate the effect of intrinsic noise as well as division cycle which encompasses the processes of growth, DNA duplication, and cell division. We first construct a minimal reaction network which can oscillate in the presence of large or negligible timescale separation. We then derive corresponding deterministic and stochastic models and compare their dynamical behaviors with respect to (i) the extent of the parameter space where each model can exhibit oscillatory behavior and (ii) the oscillation characteristics, namely, the amplitude and the period. We further incorporate division cycle effects on both models and investigate the effect of growth rate on system behavior. Our results show that in the presence but not in the absence of large timescale separation, coherence resonance effects result in extending the oscillatory region and lowering the period for the stochastic model. When the division cycle is taken into account, the oscillatory region of the deterministic model is shown to extend or shrink for moderate or high growth rates, respectively. Further, under the influence of the division cycle, the stochastic model can oscillate for parameter sets for which the deterministic model does not. The division cycle is also found to be able to resonate with the oscillator, thereby enhancing oscillation robustness. The results of this study can give valuable insight into the complex interplay between oscillatory intracellular dynamics and various noise sources, stemming from gene expression, cell growth, and division.

Effect of leaving group on the oligomerization of 5'-AMP on montmorillonite. [Abstract only  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The oligomerization of imidazole derivative of 5'-AMP (ImpA) in the presence of montmorillonite clay yields oligomers containing up to 10 monomer units. In these reactions, the heterocyclic base, imidazole is the leaving group. In our present study, we synthesized a series of activated nucleotides of 5'AMP using other leaving groups such as pyrazole, 1,2,4-triazole, piperidine, morpholine, 4-aminopyridine, 4-methylaminopyridine, 4-dimethylaminopyridine, 2-aminobenzimidazole etc. to determine the effect of amine leaving group on the products of the oligomerization reaction. Earlier results from our laboratory showed that the presence AppA in the clay reaction of ImpA enhances the oligomerization reaction to yield higher oligomers. We also studied the effect of AppA in the clay mediated oligomerization reaction of the activated nucleotides. Oligomerization of 2-amino-benzimidazole derivative of 5'-AMP gave higher oligomers containing up to nine monomer units in the presence of AppA.

Title effect of steel fiber on explosive spalling of high performance concrete subjected to high temperatures  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In order to identify the effect of steel fiber on fire resistance of high performance concrete, an experimental investigation was conducted on explosive spalling and permeability of high performance steel-fiber concrete subjected to high temperature. Explosive spalling tests were conducted on control plain concrete and steel fiber concrete. Crack observations and permeability tests were conducted on the sawn surfaces. The results prove that steel fiber is efficient to avoid spalling concrete under high temperature. The permeability increases significantly after thermal exposure, while it also exhibits an ascending trend with the increase of moisture content.

New iMOTION ™ appliance-motor control mitigates growing energy crisis in China Abstract — Estimates are that more than half of all electricity in China powers motors. The traditional mechanical control scheme wastes half of the electricity it uses. Inverterbased, variable-speed-drive designs can save most of these losses. Advancing the adoption of inverter-based variable speed drives requires finding a means to achieve mechanical simplicity while maintaining the performance necessary to meet high-efficiency goals. A new iMOTION ™ chipset consists of a unique MCE (Motion Control Engine) and a dedicated high-voltage IC to drive a PM (permanent-magnet) motor. This paper presents the chipset in the context of an air-conditioner design with corresponding test data.

ABSTRACT. In the last few years two factors have helped to significantly advance our understanding of the Myxozoa. First, the phenomenal increase in fin fish aquaculture in the 1990s has lead to the increased importance of these parasites; in turn this has lead to intensified research efforts, which have increased knowledge of the development, diagnosis, and pathogenesis of myxozoans. The hallmark discovery in the 1980s that the life cycle of Myxobolus cerebralis requires development of an actinosporean stage in the oligochaete, Tubifex tubifex, led to the elucidation of the life cycles of several other myxozoans. Also, the life cycle and taxonomy of the enigmatic PKX myxozoan has been resolved: it is the alternate stage of the unusual myxozoan, Tetracapsula bryosalmonae, from

Abstract: A system dynamics analysis of consciousness during a ten-hour religious experience of purgation, which just preceded an estimated four-to-seven second experience of mystical union, gives purgation a scientific structure. Using that structure, my research in comparative religion shows that at the essence or core of each religion resides this same sacred structure and essence. As a result, the analysis forms a general theory of religion: e pluribus unum. The work then goes further, establishing the long-sought-for integration of science and religion by rooting this core of religion in biology. As a byproduct, the analysis solves the central problem in the emerging field of consciousness studies, Chalmers ' hard problem. The presentation contains much personal material on my religious life and experiences. This is necessary as preliminary for the formalized analyses of such material.

The Effects of Federal Parity on Substance Use Disorder Treatment Running title: Federal Parity  

PubMed Central

Objective: In 2008, the U.S. Congress enacted the Paul Wellstone and Pete Domenici Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) requiring insurers equalize private insurance coverage for mental health and substance use disorder services with coverage for general medical services. Our objective was to examine the effects of the MHPAEA on substance use disorder treatment. Study design: We used a difference-in-differences design to compare changes in outcomes among plan enrollees in the years before and after implementation of federal parity (2009-2010) with changes in outcomes among a comparison group of enrollees previously covered by state substance use disorder parity laws. Methods: Insurance claims data from Aetna Inc. health plans in ten states with state parity laws were used to compare outcomes for plan enrollees in fully insured and self-insured health plans (N=298,339). Results: In the first year of implementation, we find that federal parity did not lead to changes in the proportion of enrollees using substance use disorder treatment. We did find a modest increase in spending on substance use disorder treatment per enrollee ($9.99, 95% CI: 2.54, 18.21), but no significant change in identification, treatment initiation or treatment engagement. Conclusions: Inclusion of substance use disorder services in the federal parity law did not result in substantial increases in health plan spending. It will be critical to study results for year 2 after regulations affecting the management of care (e.g., utilization review, network access) took effect. PMID:24512166

Fuzzy probabilistic method for the safety assessment Abstract The safety of structures may only be realistically assessed provided all input data are appropriately described and a realistic computational model is implemented. Input and model parameters are often only available in the form of uncertain parameters. Statistical methods are only suitable for describing uncertainty to a limited extent, however; the prognoses given by stochastic safety models are thus open to criticism. In this paper a new method of modeling uncertainty is presented, based on the theory of fuzzy random variables. Uncertain parameters, which partly exhibit random properties, but may not be modeled as random variables without an element of doubt, are described using fuzzy probability distributions. These enter the developed fuzzy probabilistic safety assessment as fuzzy probabilistic basic variables (data uncertainty). In contrast to probabilistic concepts, this new safety concept treats uncertain input and model parameters as fuzzy random variables, random variables and fuzzy variables. Random variables are additionally modeled as probabilistic basic variables (data uncertainty); fuzzy variables (model uncertainty) define the fuzzy limit state surface. Using the special extension of the First Order Reliability Method (FORM), namely the Fuzzy First Order Reliability Method (FFORM), the fuzzy reliability index is computed by-level optimization. This is compared with required values. Expert estimates are taken into consideration for assessing the fuzzy safety level. The fuzzy probabilistic safety assessment is demonstrated by way of an example. 1

Title:- Effects of Marine Cloud Brightening on Polar Regions and Meridional Heat Flux  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Marine cloud brightening (MCB) is one of several proposed solar radiation management geoengineering schemes designed to enhance the albedo of marine stratocumulus clouds, with concomitant overall cooling, and the intention of averting some of the undesirable effects of climate change (Latham et al. 2008, 2012). Such changes include ice loss, desertification and increased sea levels. Polar sea ice fraction has been recorded by satellite data for the last 40 years. This data shows a general long term reduction in sea ice thickness and area and this reduction has been attributed to climate change. Changes in climate have been reported to be disproportionately larger in polar regions. The HadGEM1 (UK Met Office Climate Model, V6.1) is a fully coupled climate model. It is used to project changes in polar ice cover and temperatures as a result of increasing carbon dioxide and the deployment of MCB geoengineering. The meridional heat flux is the mechanism for moving energy from the tropics to the polar regions. The results show that for a comparison between a control (~ 2020 carbon dioxide concentrations) and a double pre-industrial carbon dioxide simulation, the maximum meridional heat flux is found to change from 5.8 PW to 6.1 PW. With three-region MCB seeding of marine stratocumulus, this is reduced to 5.7 PW. Application of a three region seeding scenario, results an increase insea ice cover to 0.20 million sq km above the initial values.

ABSTRACT Lightning and Electrostatic Charge Effects And Protection Design Approaches For Large Transport Airships  

E-print Network

Airships are necessarily exposed to the atmospheric electrical environment, which includes electric fields, electrostatic charges, and lightning. Protection from hazards presented by these environments is necessary. One of the main issues is protection of the envelope, which is usually filled with helium. Helium poses special problems in this regard, even though it is an inert gas, because electrical breakdown of helium occurs at about 1/3 rd the electric field required for air. This means that it is possible to have thunderstorm induced electrical discharges in the helium volume before discharges occur in the surrounding air. Therefore, it is possible to have initial lightning attachment to structures inside the envelope resulting in envelope puncture. It is therefore necessary to include the presence of helium in the lightning protection design. This paper offers lightning and static electricity protection concepts for a large semi-rigid airship based on simulated lightning tests of simple 1/25 th scale model envelope enclosures combined with laboratory testing and numerical simulations of thunderstorm electric field interaction with the airship geometry and materials. The relevant properties of helium compared to air are provided based on laboratory testing. A description of how the examples of the scale model laboratory tests of simple helium filled envelope shapes, combined with numerical electric field analyses approach and test results can be used to verify adequacy of protection of a full size airship will be presented, as well as correlated numerical simulations. Additional concerns related to potential lightning and electrostatic effects on airship propulsion, flight control and electrical and avionic systems will be described, together with approaches with addressing them. Proposed new transport airship certification requirements, adapted from transport aircraft certification requirements, will also be reviewed. Airships and balloons in tethered or free flight have been struck

The substantial excess risk of abuse and homicide incurred by stepchildren has been abundantly documented in dozens of studies using diverse methodologies (see companion document “The Cinderella effect”). Nevertheless, philosopher David Buller (2005a,b) has recently attempted to call the existence of this phenomenon into question by proposing “that all of the evidence cited in support ” of it (Buller 2005b: 282; emphasis in original) can be explained away as products of a “reporting bias ” such that abusive behaviour by stepparents is more likely to be detected and recorded than identical abusive behaviour by genetic parents. What the papers that Buller cites in support of this conjecture actually contain is very different from what he says they contain. But before going into those details, it is first worth noting how big this imagined bias would have to be in order to make Buller’s speculation work. Why reporting bias cannot possibly explain Cinderella effects Daly & Wilson (2001) estimated rates of fatal batterings of Canadian children under 5 years of age in 1974-1990 at 2.6 deaths per million child-years at risk for those residing with and killed by their (presumed) genetic fathers (based on 74 deaths in 28.3 million child-years at risk) vs 321.6 per million child-years at risk for those residing with and killed by stepfathers (55 in 0.17 million child-years at

Potential energy surface for the CH3+HBr-->CH4+Br hydrogen abstraction reaction: Thermal and state-selected rate constants, and kinetic isotope effects  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The gas-phase hydrogen abstraction title reaction was carefully investigated. First, ab initio molecular orbital theory was used to study the stationary points along the reaction path: reactants, hydrogen-bonded complex, saddle point, and products. Optimized geometries and harmonic vibrational frequencies were calculated at the second-order Mřller-Plesset perturbation theory level, and then single-point calculations were performed at a higher level of calculation: coupled-cluster with triple-zeta basis set. The effects of the level of calculation, zero-point energy (ZPE), thermal corrections [TC (298.15 K)], spin-orbit coupling, and basis set superposition error (BSSE) on the energy changes were analyzed. It was concluded that at room temperature (i.e., with ZPE and TC), when the BSSE was included, the complex disappears and the activation enthalpy is +0.39 kcal mol-1 above the reactants. Second, an analytical potential energy surface was constructed with suitable functional forms to represent vibrational modes, and was calibrated by using experimental and theoretical stationary point properties and the tendency of the kinetic isotope effects. On this surface, the forward and reverse thermal rate constants were calculated using variational transition state theory with semiclassical transmission coefficients over a wide temperature range. In both cases, we found a direct dependence on temperature and, therefore, positive activation energies. The influence of the tunneling factor was very small due to the flattening of the surface in the entrance valley. This surface was also used to analyze dynamical features, such as reaction-path curvature, the coupling between the reaction coordinate and vibrational modes, and the effect of vibrational excitation on the rate constants. It was found that excitation of the BrH stretching mode enhances the forward reaction, whereas the excitation of the CH3 umbrella mode has the opposite effect.

However, at the end of 2003, approximately one fourth of the estimated 1 million persons living with HIV remained unaware of their infection (1). Among all persons with HIV infection diagnosed in 2005, 38 % received a diagnosis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) within 1 year of their first positive HIV test (2). To reduce the number of persons with undiagnosed HIV infection, CDC issued recommendations in September 2006 to implement HIV screening as part of routine medical care for all persons aged 13–64 years (3). To establish a baseline for evaluating the effects of these recommendations and other strategies to increase HIV testing, CDC

Cognitive enhancers Memory enhancers are often referred to as "smart drugs", "study drugs", [1] "smart nutrients", "cognitive enhancers", "brain enhancers " or in the scientific literature as nootropics. [2] They are drugs that are purported to improve human cognitive abilities. [3][4] The term covers a broad range of substances including drugs, nutrients and herbs with purported cognitive enhancing effects. The word nootropic was coined in 1964 by Dr. Corneliu E. Giurgea, derived from the Greek words noos, or "mind, " and tropein meaning "to bend/turn". Typically, nootropics are thought to work by altering the availability of the brain's supply of neurochemicals (neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones), by improving the brain's oxygen supply, or by stimulating nerve growth. However the efficacy of nootropic substances in most cases has not been conclusively determined. This is complicated by the difficulty of defining

Does the modified Stroop effect exist in PTSD? Evidence from dissertation abstracts and the peer reviewed literature  

PubMed Central

The modified Stroop effect (MSE), in which participants show delayed color naming to trauma specific words is one of the most widely cited findings in the literature pertaining to cognitive bias in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The current study used a novel approach (Dissertation Abstract Review; DAR) to review the presence of the MSE in dissertation abstracts. A review of dissertations that used the modified Stroop task in a PTSD sample revealed that only 8% of the studies found delayed reaction times to trauma-specific words in participants with PTSD. The most common finding (75%) was for no PTSD-specific effects in color naming trauma-relevant words. This ratio is significantly lower than ratios found in the peer reviewed literature, but even in the peer reviewed literature only 44% of controlled studies found the modified Stroop effect (MSE). These data suggest that a re-evaluation of the MSE in PTSD is warranted. PMID:19272751

human and financial terms, of medical errors in the U.S. health care system. 1 Two studies cited in the report indicate that between 44,000 and 98,000 people die each year in the United States as a result of medical errors. The national cost to the economy of these errors is between $17 billion and $29 billion. Since the release of the Institute of Medicine’s report, a number of successful initiatives have been launched to help hospitals change their cultures and care processes to produce safer health care environments with fewer medical errors. A growing body of literature describes the link between a hospital’s physical design and its key quality and safety outcomes. Hospital planners, expected to spend nearly $250 billion on new construction in the next 10 years, are consulting this evidence and incorporating it into their designs for capital construction projects. 2 In the midst of this construction boom, hospital planners have an opportunity to create safer and more effective facilities that enhance patient safety, improve

What is reflective thinking? The description of reflective thinking: Critical thinking and reflective thinking are often used synonymously. Critical thinking is used to describe: "... the use of those cognitive skills or strategies that increase the probability of a desirable outcome...thinking that is purposeful, reasoned and goal directed- the kind of thinking involved in solving problems, formulating inferences, calculating likelihoods, and making decisions when the thinker is using skills that are thoughtful and effective for the particular context and type of thinking task. Critical thinking is sometimes called directed thinking because it focuses on a desired outcome." Halpern (1996). Reflective thinking, on the other hand, is a part of the critical thinking process referring specifically to the processes of analyzing and making judgments about what has happened. Dewey (1933) suggests that reflective thinking is an active, persistent, and careful consideration of a belief or supposed form of knowledge, of the grounds that support that knowledge, and the further conclusions to which that knowledge leads. Learners are aware of and control their learning by actively participating in reflective

Title V, compliance assurance monitoring (CAM), and the use of any credible evidence (ACE): The effects on compliance and enforcement in the future  

SciTech Connect

Under Title V, facilities are required to determine the compliance status of each air emission source with all applicable requirements. In addition, facilities are required to determine the methods that will be used to demonstrate on-going compliance with these requirements. Under Title V, it is no longer the responsibility of the regulator to determine whether a facility is in compliance; it is the facility`s responsibility to continuously prove they are in compliance. The CAM rule, as drafted, will implement the Enhanced Monitoring (EM) and periodic monitoring requirements of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA). CAM will require facilities subject to Title V to develop CAM plans for specific emission units at the facility. CAM plans will include the methods that will be used to provide reasonable assurance of continuous compliance with applicable requirements. In addition, the EPA is also proposing to finalize portions of the 1993 EM rule that would allow the use of ACE to determine compliance with emission limits. Reference test methods are the only means currently available to determine compliance with emission limits. The EPA has indicated that, under the ACE rule, even data obtained via CAM will be considered credible evidence in determining the compliance status of a facility. CAM and Title V will require sources to submit large amounts of data to the regulatory agency. The data, upon submittal, are public record and can be used to indicate non-compliance under the ACE rule. Therefore, the burden shift associated with CAM and Title V, in conjunction with the use of ACE, will significantly increase the potential liability of industry. This paper discusses the implications Title V, CAM, and the ACE rule will have on industry as well as the possible effects the regulations will have on enforcement in the future. The paper will provide the perspectives of both plant managers and legal counsel.

Semantic priming in deep-phonological dyslexia: contrasting effects of association and similarity upon abstract and concrete word reading.  

PubMed

We report a series of experiments investigating the reading abilities of a patient R.O.M. who exhibited the syndrome of deep-phonological dyslexia. In a series of semantic priming tasks, R.O.M. was requested to read word lists containing either abstract or concrete words, which were related by semantic similarity or semantic association, or which shared no clear semantic relationship. R.O.M. read semantically similar concrete words significantly more accurately than unrelated items, but showed no such advantage for semantically associated concrete words. By contrast, semantically associated abstract words were read significantly more accurately than unrelated items, but there was no evidence of priming for semantically similar abstract words. Thus, we describe an attempt to harness semantic priming to find converging evidence for a distinction between the representational frameworks underpinning abstract and concrete concepts. The findings are considered in the context of competing theories of the abstract/concrete distinction. PMID:18416510

The effects of impulsivity, sexual arousability, and abstract intellectual ability on men's and women's go/no-go task performance.  

PubMed

While a number of studies have assessed the role of personality traits, situational variables, and drug use on sexual risk behaviors, fewer studies have employed experimental methods to examine cognitive processes that may underlie risky sexual decision making. This study used a go/no-go paradigm to examine how individual difference variables and sexual arousal influence discrimination learning and sexual and nonsexual decision making. A total of 28 men (M age = 20 years) and 25 women (M age = 19 years) completed self-report measures of impulsivity, abstract intellectual ability, and sexual excitation and inhibition and participated in a laboratory experiment. The experiment consisted of two go/no-go tasks with sexual stimuli and two tasks with neutral stimuli, preceded by either sexually arousing or sexually neutral stimulus presentations. Task performance was measured by totals of false alarms and misses. Individuals high in impulsivity and low in abstract intellectual ability committed more false alarms in conditions involving sexually arousing stimuli. Furthermore, higher sexual excitation scores were linked to more misses. These findings indicate that cognitive processes associated with decision making that occurs in the "heat of the moment" are influenced by a combination of situational and sexual and nonsexual individual difference variables.

This report presents data and analyses related to Phase I implementation of the Clean Air Act Amendment by electric utilities. It describes the strategies used to comply with the Acid Rain Program in 1995, the effect of compliance on sulfur dioxide emissions levels, the cost of compliance, and the effects of the program on coal supply and demand. The first year of Phase I demonstrated that the market-based sulfur dioxide emissions control system could achieve significant reductions in emissions at lower than expected costs. Some utilities reduced aggregate emissions below legal requirements due to economic incentives; other utilities purchased additional allowances to avoid noncompliance. More than half of the utilities switched to or blended with lower sulfur coal, due to price reductions in the coal market which were partially due to the allowance trading program. 21 figs., 20 tabs.

What makes a good title?  

PubMed

The chances are the first thing you when you set out to write an article is the title. But what factors transform a mediocre title into a good title? Firstly, it should be both informative and specific, using words or phrases likely to be used when searching for information, for example 'nurse education' rather than simply 'nurse'. Secondly, it should be concise yet convey the main ideas clearly; articles with short titles reporting study findings have been found to attract higher numbers of viewing and citations. Thirdly, provide details of the study design to assist the reader in making an informed choice about the type of project your article is reporting. In taking these small steps when developing your title, your title can present a more concise, retrievable and clear articulation of your article. PMID:24251888

Abstraction of Drift Seepage  

SciTech Connect

This model report documents the abstraction of drift seepage, conducted to provide seepage-relevant parameters and their probability distributions for use in Total System Performance Assessment for License Application (TSPA-LA). Drift seepage refers to the flow of liquid water into waste emplacement drifts. Water that seeps into drifts may contact waste packages and potentially mobilize radionuclides, and may result in advective transport of radionuclides through breached waste packages [''Risk Information to Support Prioritization of Performance Assessment Models'' (BSC 2003 [DIRS 168796], Section 3.3.2)]. The unsaturated rock layers overlying and hosting the repository form a natural barrier that reduces the amount of water entering emplacement drifts by natural subsurface processes. For example, drift seepage is limited by the capillary barrier forming at the drift crown, which decreases or even eliminates water flow from the unsaturated fractured rock into the drift. During the first few hundred years after waste emplacement, when above-boiling rock temperatures will develop as a result of heat generated by the decay of the radioactive waste, vaporization of percolation water is an additional factor limiting seepage. Estimating the effectiveness of these natural barrier capabilities and predicting the amount of seepage into drifts is an important aspect of assessing the performance of the repository. The TSPA-LA therefore includes a seepage component that calculates the amount of seepage into drifts [''Total System Performance Assessment (TSPA) Model/Analysis for the License Application'' (BSC 2004 [DIRS 168504], Section 6.3.3.1)]. The TSPA-LA calculation is performed with a probabilistic approach that accounts for the spatial and temporal variability and inherent uncertainty of seepage-relevant properties and processes. Results are used for subsequent TSPA-LA components that may handle, for example, waste package corrosion or radionuclide transport.

Kinetic solvent effects on hydrogen abstraction from phenol by the cumyloxyl radical. Toward an understanding of the role of protic solvents.  

PubMed

A time-resolved kinetic study of the hydrogen atom abstraction reactions from phenol by the cumyloxyl radical (CumO(•)) was carried out in different solvents. The hydrogen atom abstraction rate constant (k(H)) was observed to decrease by almost 3 orders of magnitude on going from isooctane to MeOH. In TFE, MeCN/H(2)O 2:1, and MeOH, the measured k(H) values were lower than expected on the basis of the Snelgrove-Ingold (SI) equation that correlates log k(H) to the solvent hydrogen bond acceptor (HBA) ability parameter ?(2)(H). As these solvents also act as hydrogen bond donors (HBDs), we explored the notion that a more thorough description of solvent effects could be provided by including a solvent HBD ability term, ?(2)(H), into the SI equation via ?(2)(H)(1 + ?(2)(H)). The inclusion of such a term greatly improves the fitting for TFE, MeCN/H(2)O 2:1, and MeOH but at the expense of that for tertiary alkanols. This finding suggests that, for the reaction of CumO(•) with phenol, the HBA and HBD abilities of both the solvent and the substrate could be responsible for the observed KSEs. but this requires that primary and tertiary alkanols exhibit different solvation behaviors. Possible explanations for this different behavior are explored. PMID:22263528

Abstraction and art.  

PubMed

In a given social context, artistic creation comprises a set of processes, which relate to the activity of the artist and the activity of the spectator. Through these processes we see and understand that the world is vaster than it is said to be. Artistic processes are mediated experiences that open up the world. A successful work of art expresses a reality beyond actual reality: it suggests an unknown world using the means and the signs of the known world. Artistic practices incorporate the means of creation developed by science and technology and change forms as they change. Artists and the public follow different processes of abstraction at different levels, in the definition of the means of creation, of representation and of perception of a work of art. This paper examines how the processes of abstraction are used within the framework of the visual arts and abstract painting, which appeared during a period of growing importance for the processes of abstraction in science and technology, at the beginning of the twentieth century. The development of digital platforms and new man-machine interfaces allow multimedia creations. This is performed under the constraint of phases of multidisciplinary conceptualization using generic representation languages, which tend to abolish traditional frontiers between the arts: visual arts, drama, dance and music.

The seismic hazards addressed herein are vibratory ground motion, fault displacement, and rockfall due to ground motion. The EBS components are the drip shield, the waste package, and the fuel cladding. The requirements for development of the abstractions and the associated algorithms for the seismic scenario class are defined in ''Technical Work Plan For: Regulatory Integration Modeling of Drift Degradation, Waste Package and Drip Shield Vibratory Motion and Seismic Consequences'' (BSC 2004 [DIRS 171520]). The development of these abstractions will provide a more complete representation of flow into and transport from the EBS under disruptive events. The results from this development will also address portions of integrated subissue ENG2, Mechanical Disruption of Engineered Barriers, including the acceptance criteria for this subissue defined in Section 2.2.1.3.2.3 of the ''Yucca Mountain Review Plan, Final Report'' (NRC 2003 [DIRS 163274]).

State of competition in gasoline marketing. The effects of refiner operation at retail (a study required by Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act)  

SciTech Connect

Title III of the Petroleum Marketing Practices Act requires the Secretary of Energy to report to the Congress on the extent to which producers, refiners, and other suppliers of motor fuel subsidize the sale of such fuel at retail or wholesale with profits obtained from other operations. This is Part I of the report required under that Title. It addresses a number of questions relating to the central issue - the state of competition in the gasoline marketing industry. Part II of the report, to be issued this fall, will discuss the subpoenaed documents of nine integrated companies, and will contain recommendations for action, if deemed necessary. The basic thrust of Part I is an examination of three issues: (1) Are integrated refiners subsidizing their company operated gasoline retail outlets; (2) Are integrated refiners moving gasoline away from their branded dealer network into their own retail outlets; and (3) Are integrated refiners manipulating the allocation system in favor of their own retail outlets to the detriment of other gasoline marketers. At a series of regional hearings, independent marketers charged that integrated refiners were engaging in each of these practices. In essence, integrated refiners were portrayed as using unfair or illegal competitive practices which would ultimately lead to their domination of retail gasoline markets. This report addresses each allegation, after providing a historical and theoretical framework for today's debate.

EBS Radionuclide Transport Abstraction  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this report is to develop and analyze the engineered barrier system (EBS) radionuclide transport abstraction model, consistent with Level I and Level II model validation, as identified in ''Technical Work Plan for: Near-Field Environment and Transport: Engineered Barrier System: Radionuclide Transport Abstraction Model Report Integration'' (BSC 2005 [DIRS 173617]). The EBS radionuclide transport abstraction (or EBS RT Abstraction) is the conceptual model used in the total system performance assessment for the license application (TSPA-LA) to determine the rate of radionuclide releases from the EBS to the unsaturated zone (UZ). The EBS RT Abstraction conceptual model consists of two main components: a flow model and a transport model. Both models are developed mathematically from first principles in order to show explicitly what assumptions, simplifications, and approximations are incorporated into the models used in the TSPA-LA. The flow model defines the pathways for water flow in the EBS and specifies how the flow rate is computed in each pathway. Input to this model includes the seepage flux into a drift. The seepage flux is potentially split by the drip shield, with some (or all) of the flux being diverted by the drip shield and some passing through breaches in the drip shield that might result from corrosion or seismic damage. The flux through drip shield breaches is potentially split by the waste package, with some (or all) of the flux being diverted by the waste package and some passing through waste package breaches that might result from corrosion or seismic damage. Neither the drip shield nor the waste package survives an igneous intrusion, so the flux splitting submodel is not used in the igneous scenario class. The flow model is validated in an independent model validation technical review. The drip shield and waste package flux splitting algorithms are developed and validated using experimental data. The transport model considers advective transport and diffusive transport from a breached waste package. Advective transport occurs when radionuclides that are dissolved or sorbed onto colloids (or both) are carried from the waste package by the portion of the seepage flux that passes through waste package breaches. Diffusive transport occurs as a result of a gradient in radionuclide concentration and may take place while advective transport is also occurring, as well as when no advective transport is occurring. Diffusive transport is addressed in detail because it is the sole means of transport when there is no flow through a waste package, which may dominate during the regulatory compliance period in the nominal and seismic scenarios. The advective transport rate, when it occurs, is generally greater than the diffusive transport rate. Colloid-facilitated advective and diffusive transport is also modeled and is presented in detail in Appendix B of this report.

Optimizing operational flexibility and enforcement liability in Title V permits  

SciTech Connect

Now that most states have interim or full approval of the portions of their state implementation plans (SIPs) implementing Title V (40 CFR Part 70) of the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA), most sources which require a Title V permit have submitted or are well on the way to submitting a Title V operating permit application. Numerous hours have been spent preparing applications to ensure the administrative completeness of the application and operational flexibility for the facility. Although much time and effort has been spent on Title V permit applications, the operating permit itself is the final goal. This paper outlines the major Federal requirements for Title V permits as given in the CAAA at 40 CFR 70.6, Permit Content. These Federal requirements and how they will effect final Title V permits and facilities will be discussed. This paper will provide information concerning the Federal requirements for Title V permits and suggestions on how to negotiate a Title V permit to maximize operational flexibility and minimize enforcement liability.

Comparison of Adherence to Chlamydia Screening Guidelines Among Title X Providers and Non-Title X Providers in the California Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment Program  

PubMed Central

Abstract Background Annual chlamydia screening is recommended for adolescent and young adult females and targeted screening is recommended for women ?26 years based on risk. Although screening levels have increased over time, adherence to these guidelines varies, with high levels of adherence among Title X family planning providers. However, previous studies of provider variation in screening rates have not adjusted for differences in clinic and client population characteristics. Methods Administrative claims from the California Family Planning, Access, Care, and Treatment (Family PACT) program were used to (1) examine clinic and client sociodemographic characteristics by provider group—Title X-funded public sector, non-Title X public sector, and private sector providers, and (2) estimate age-specific screening and differences in rates by provider group during 2009. Results Among 833 providers, Title X providers were more likely than non-Title X public sector providers and private sector providers to serve a higher client volume, a higher proportion of clients aged ?25 years, and a higher proportion of African American clients. Non-Title X public providers were more likely to be located in rural areas, compared with Title X grantees and private sector providers. Title X providers had the largest absolute difference in screening rates for young females vs. older females (10.9%). Unadjusted screening rates for young clients were lower among non-Title X public sector providers (54%) compared with private sector and Title X providers (64% each). After controlling for provider group, urban location, client volume, and percent African American, private sector providers had higher screening rates than Title X and non-Title X public providers. Conclusions Screening rates for females were higher among private providers compared with Title X and non-Title X public providers. However, only Title X providers were more likely to adhere to screening guidelines through high screening rates for young females and low screening rates for older females. PMID:22694761

Title IX and Women's Sports  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Last Sunday's Women's World Cup Final between China and the US and the unprecedented excitement surrounding it have been portrayed by many as a turning point in women's sports. While the performance of the US team may not have been as critical to the future possibility of a US professional women's soccer league as some claim, their win is certainly a major success story for Title IX. Passed in 1972, Title IX states that, "no person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid." While Title IX's application to athletics has gathered the most attention, it has also contributed to major increases in women's enrollment in undergraduate and graduate schools. The key element in regard to athletics is financial proportionality; school athletic aid must now be substantially proportionate to the ratio of male and female athletes. Disparities still remain, of course, especially in salaries for coaches of men's and women's sports, but the number of women participating in and the budgets for women's teams are significantly higher now than before Title IX and, by most accounts, will continue to grow. While almost all of the players on the US team have completed their undergraduate education, several will be returning to campuses this fall for graduate school or, in an example of Title IX turning full circle, as assistant coaches. The sites listed provide information about women's sports today.

ITER neutralizer modeling (abstract)  

SciTech Connect

In the neutralizer of the ITER Neutral Beam Injector, a 1 MeV-D{sup -} beam passes through an structure filled with D{sub 2} gas, where negative ions are mainly converted to fast D{sup 0} atoms. Once that the beam is neutralized no further optical correction is possible, i.e., transport from the neutralizer to the confinement chamber is ballistic. Because of this, the transport through the neutralizer determines ultimately the geometrical properties of the neutral beams. The ionization of the buffer gas (D{sub 2}) filling the neutralizer induced by the D beam creates a rarefied and low temperature plasma (ionization degree {approx_equal}10{sup -3}, electron temperature {approx_equal}20 eV). This plasma can screen the electrostatic well of the D beam and, consequently, affect the properties of the extracted beam and the energy transport to the neutralizer walls. On the other hand, the plasma will eventually escape from the neutralizer and move back in the accelerator chain, toward the accelerating grids and the source. We present particle-in-cell simulations of the beam propagation and plasma formation through the neutralizer. Particle-particle and particle-wall collisions are treated using a Monte Carlo approach. Simulations show that the secondary plasma effectively screens the beam space charge preventing beam radial expansion due to Coulomb repulsion between beam ions. First results suggest that the current of plasma ions (D{sub 2}{sup +}) into the accelerator would be of the order of I(D{sup -})/100, with I(D{sup -}) the negative ion current.

Louisiana Title V General Permits  

SciTech Connect

Title V of the Federal Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 requires federal operating permits for all major sources of air pollution. In 1992, Title 40, Part 70 of the Code of Federal Regulations (40 CFR Part 70) codified the law s requirements. These federal regulations, entitled Operating Permit Program, define the minimum requirements for state administered operating permit programs. The intent of Title V is to put into one document all requirements of an operating permit. General Permits for oil and gas facilities may be preferred if the facility can comply with all permit requirements. If greater flexibility than allowed by the General Permit is required, then the facility should apply for an individual Title V permit. General Permits are designed to streamline the permitting process, shorten the time it takes to obtain approval for initial and modified permits. The advantages of the General Permit include reduced paperwork and greater consistency because the permits are standardized. There should be less uncertainty because permit requirements will be known at the time of application. Approval times for Initial and modified General Permits should be reduced. Lengthy public notice procedures (and possible hearings) will be required for only the initial approval of the General Permit and not for each applicant to the permit. A disadvantage of General Permits is reduced flexibility since the facility must comply with the requirements of a standardized permit.

Negotiating Title V and non-Title V permits  

SciTech Connect

The Title V Operating Permits program has been extended over many more years than originally anticipated when the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments were first legislated. In fact, the regulatory program is still being refined even as facilities complete and submit their Title V permit applications. Likewise, it is clear that the agency review of the Title V permit applications will probably take considerably longer than originally anticipated. Finally, when the agency does complete the review, it is equally clear that there will need to be a significant amount of negotiating on the part of the facility to arrive at a simplified permit that is operationally feasible. This paper presents a number of suggestions for what the facility should be doing between the time the permit application is first submitted and the agency responds with a draft permit. The suggestions are designed to help simplify the permit and enhance flexibility. In addition, the paper presents permit negotiating techniques and points out the pitfalls that will be encountered if the facility does not take action prior to receiving the draft Title V permit. This paper suggests that the facility should internally evaluate how the permit application impacts facility operations prior to the agency doing so. It also suggests that the facility should contact the agency early and amend the permit application to take advantage of increasing regulatory flexibility. By taking these steps, and properly negotiating the permit terms and conditions; the facility will achieve a much better permit, and will hopefully be able to avoid the regulatory burdens and delays associated with re-opening the permit during the next 5 to 8 years (from the time of permit application submittal).

ABSTRACT  

E-print Network

The purpose of this study was to identify the prevalence of sex in the television media that adolescents watch and the magazine media targeted at adolescent females. The study was conducted by researcher observation and categorical tallying of sex related instances on various prime time television shows and commercials and in four major magazines. The television shows chosen for analysis were determined by media ratings reports indicating they are popular among adolescents. Targeted audience determined the magazines chosen for analysis. The analysis of the television shows and magazines occurred from January 2002 through April 2002. The adolescent life stage was chosen for analysis because it is a time when individuals are developing their gender identities and sexual attitudes (Durham, 1998). i Media can play a large role in this development as a source of information and modeling (Committee of Public Education, 2001; Ward, 1995). Previous research shows that there is a substantial amount of sex and sex related references in the media (Kunkel, Cope, and Biely, 1999). This investigation aimed to identify the sexual content of media specifically targeted for or consumed by adolescents.

This paper reviews the main issues in alcohol expectancy research, and identifies how these findings can best be used in substance abuse treatment. The paper includes a review of literature on theoretical perspectives of alcohol expectancies, different types of related testing instruments, and early research in alcohol expectancies. It also includes research related to the role of alcohol expectancies in predicting behaviors, preventing alcohol abuse or dependency, and the treatment of alcohol dependence. This review also includes implications for the use of alcohol expectancies in treating and preventing alcohol dependence, as well as recommendations for future research. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The writer wishes to acknowledge, and give thanks to Dr. Stephen Shumate for agreeing to take time from his busy schedule to advise me in the completion of this research paper. The writer also wishes to honor and acknowledge Alice Gadke, as well as the rest of my family, and friends, who continually reminded me of my goals, while guiding and supporting me throughout my life with just the right amount of harassment. I am grateful for your love and friendship.

World Title Boxing: From Early Beginnings to the First Bell  

PubMed Central

There is scant literature where applied sport scientists have considered first hand experiences preparing professional boxers for world title bouts. The present submission reflects more than 10 years of applied experience working with professional boxers, residing in Canada. What follows is a composite of sequential steps that ownership and coaching staff of one Canadian management group have tried leading up to more than 20 world title bout experiences. The strategies proposed have been built progressively over time, and what follows is a general overview of a more detailed pre-bout structure from shortly in advance of a world title bout offer to the moment when the athlete enters the ring to perform. We propose that an effective structure is founded upon detailed a priori preparation, tactical decisions throughout bout preparation, and a thorough understanding by the athlete of what he will encounter during the title bout.

Abstract DNA-type systems  

E-print Network

An abstract DNA-type system is defined by a set of nonlinear kinetic equations with polynomial nonlinearities that admit soliton solutions associated with helical geometry. The set of equations allows for two different Lax representations: A von Neumann form and a Darboux-covariant Lax pair. We explain why non-Kolmogorovian probability models occurring in soliton kinetics are naturally associated with chemical reactions. The most general known characterization of soliton kinetic equations is given and a class of explicit soliton solutions is discussed. Switching between open and closed states is a generic behaviour of the helices. The effect does not crucially depend on the order of nonlinearity (i.e. types of reactions), a fact that may explain why simplified models possess properties occuring in realistic systems. We explain also why fluctuations based on Darboux transformations will not destroy the dynamics but only switch between a finite number of helical structures.

Impacts of Title IV in Maryland  

SciTech Connect

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources` Power Plant Research Program has evaluated the environmental effects of acid deposition on Maryland`s air, land, water (especially the Chesapeake Bay), and human resources since the mid-1980`s. Title IV of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (CAAA90) has focused much attention on the mandated reductions of nitrogen oxides (NO{sub x}) and sulfur dioxide (SO{sub 2}) to control acid deposition. Baseline data on acidic deposition and air emissions/pollution control for NO{sub x} and SO{sub 2} acquired through PPRP studies have proved useful in evaluating the impacts of Title IV on Maryland power plants and resources. Three example programs are discussed: The first is an evaluation of SO{sub 2} emissions on ecosystems through the use of critical loads--the amount of acid rain that an ecosystem can tolerate without continuing to acidify. Results support the use of broadly based emissions trading scenarios: The second study is an evaluation of the potential for reducing nitrate loading in the Chesapeake Bay by reducing NO{sub x} emissions. Results indicate substantial NO{sub x} emission reductions could offer significant reductions in nitrate deposition to the Bay: The final study is a review of the impacts of Title IV on the Maryland coal industry and the prospects for coal cleaning and advanced combustion technologies. Current results indicate that Maryland coal will meet Phase 2 SO{sub 2} emission standards using advanced combustion techniques, such as fluidized bed technologies, but that additional emissions controls, such as a scrubber would be required in a conventional boiler.

Database abstractions: aggregation and generalization  

Microsoft Academic Search

Two kinds of abstraction that are fundamentally important in database design and usage are defined. Aggregation is an abstraction which turns a relationship between objects into an aggregate object. Generalization is an abstraction which turns a class of objects into a generic object. It is suggested that all objects (individual, aggregate, generic) should be given uniform treatment in models of

An analysis of the effects on precipitation chemistry of Phase I of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, Title IV  

SciTech Connect

Sulfate and free hydrogen ion concentrations in precipitation decreased 10 to 25 percent over large areas of the eastern United States in 1995. The largest decreases in both ions occurred in and downwind of the Ohio River Valley, the same area where Phase I of the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments set limitations, effective January 1, 1995, on sulfur dioxide emissions from affected coal-fired sources. Based on the authors analysis of precipitation chemistry and emissions data, they conclude that substantial declines in acid rain occurred in the eastern United States in 1995 because of large reductions in sulfur dioxide emissions in the same region.

Integrated Title V/acid rain permits: Transitioning through initial permit issuance and reopenings  

SciTech Connect

Titles IV and V of the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 (Act or CAA) created two new stationary source permitting programs, one specific to acid rain (Title IV), and a second for operating permits in general (Title V). The Phase 2 portion of the acid rain program was designed to be implemented through the Title V operating permit program, thereby subjecting all Phase 2 acid rain sources to the requirements of Title V. Permits issued pursuant to Phase 2 of the acid rain program will be viewed as a self-contained portion of the Title V operating permit and will be governed by regulations promulgated under both Title IV and Title V. The requirements imposed by Title IV may not always be consistent with the broader operating permit program requirements of Title V, and when inconsistency occurs, the acid rain requirements will take precedence. This nonalignment will perhaps be most apparent during two stages of initial permitting: (1) the transition period following Title V program approval when permit application, issuance, and effective dates differ between the two programs, and (2) at the point when acid rain permits must be reopened to incorporate Phase 2 NO{sub x} requirements. This paper explores strategies for streamlining implementation of the two programs with particular focus on these two coordination issues.

Effects of landscape composition and wetland fragmentation on frog and toad abundance and species richness in Iowa and Wisconsin, USA [abstract  

USGS Publications Warehouse

We examined the relationships between anuran diversity and landscape features in the Upper Midwestern United States. Anuran relative abundance and species richness were measured using data collected by Wisconsin and Iowa state calling surveys conducted from 1990-1995. Landscape features surrounding survey points were determined using National Wetland Inventory and Wisconsin Wetland Inventory maps. We tested several hypotheses suggested by the literature. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans that breed in ephemeral wetlands is positively correlated with the surrounding area of temporary wetlands and emergent wetlands. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans is positively correlated with patch diversity and wetland edges, in the absence of local fragmentation effects. We hypothesized that the relative abundance and species richness of anurans is positively associated with forests but negatively associated with agriculture and urban areas. Our results show that the interspersion of different wetland types and the concomitant increase in wetland edge habitats were generally positive for frogs and toads and anuran abundance and diversity were generally higher in association with forests, especially forested wetlands. The presence of agriculture did not always depress frog and toad populations or diversity; some species were associated with agricultural landscapes. The two states differed in how anurans were associated with landscape features like lakes and permanent wetlands. We found that frog and toad relative abundance and diversity were lower when urban areas were present. Managers can use models like ours, generated from landscape analyses, along with range maps and population trend analyses to get a comprehensive picture of the health of individual species and groups of species. Our models could be applied to the landscape as a whole, and used to predict species relative abundance and richness at new locations. Our work provides a framework for future experimental and intensive research on specific factors affecting the health of amphibians in the Upper Midwest.

Experience implementing Title V at a large utility  

SciTech Connect

Implementation of a Clean Air Act Title V program at a large utility in Colorado involved the following activities: Generation of Operating Permit Applications; Identification of areas of non-compliance and self-reporting to the regulatory agency; Development and implementation of better record-keeping systems; Development and implementation of training programs; and, Development and implementation of a pilot program. This paper discusses in detail eight ``lessons learned`` from the experience gained during a one-year pilot program. (1) The whole process of record-keeping at the plant level had to be improved. Under Title V, regulators will go directly to a facility and ask to see documentation of compliance. Facility personnel must be prepared to show regulators the appropriate documentation. (2) Recordkeeping must be electronic. Trying to comply using manual record-keeping will generate too much paper. (3) By monitoring for a year as if Title V were in effect, deficiencies were identified early and corrected. In this way, the Utility was ready when their permit was issued. (4) One person at each facility was designated as the Title V representative, giving one focal point for the plant and one person responsible for the Title V information. (5) Training was conducted for everyone at the plant, from the receptionist to the manager. This was important for getting cooperation from plant personnel. More specific training was given to Title V representatives from all the plants. (6) A multi-disciplinary implementation team is necessary, consisting of personnel from legal, operations, environmental, etc., to ensure successful implementation. (7) Internal audits were conducted during the pilot program so that plants can self-report to the regulatory agency, thereby gaining regulatory relief from severe fines. (8) A Quality Assurance Manual/User`s Guide was prepared that pulls together all aspects of the program. This ensures consistency in implementation when personnel change.

How Abstract is Abstract? Layering Meaning in Physics  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

External representations, including pictures, graphs, text, gestures, and utterances, are key components of all curricular materials in physics. Such representations play a key role in cognitive function, particularly insofar as individuals interpret the meanings of and apply meanings to these representations. We previously proposed a model of how individuals can make meaning of and with external representations through layered analogies and applied this model to learning abstract ideas in physics, i.e. EM waves. We extend this model in two ways. We distinguish individualsâ interpretations of representations, which can be highly variable and fleeting, from the physics communityâs agreed upon interpretations, which are more stable and coherent. We describe these two dimensions of representation use: abstraction based on the community consensus of concepts and salience based on readily accessible pieces of knowledge for an individual.

Handedness Shapes Children's Abstract Concepts  

ERIC Educational Resources Information Center

Can children's handedness influence how they represent abstract concepts like "kindness" and "intelligence"? Here we show that from an early age, right-handers associate rightward space more strongly with positive ideas and leftward space with negative ideas, but the opposite is true for left-handers. In one experiment, children indicated where on…

Abstract Syntax and Variable Binding  

Microsoft Academic Search

We develop a theory of abstract syntax with variable binding. To every binding signature we associate a cat- egory of models consisting of variable sets endowed with compatible algebra and substitution structures. The syntax generated by the signature is the initial model. This gives a notion of initial algebra semantics encompassing the tradi- tional one; besides compositionality, it automatically veri-

Abstraction: Nature, costs, and benefits

It is argued that abstract cognitive processes entail the processing of relations, which differ from more primitive cognitive processes in being more accessible, more flexible, and less content-specific. A relation is a binding between a relation-symbol or predicate, and one or more arguments. Each argument corresponds to a slot which can be filled in a number of ways, so the

An Abstract Plan Preparation Language  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This paper presents a new planning language that is more abstract than most existing planning languages such as the Planning Domain Definition Language (PDDL) or the New Domain Description Language (NDDL). The goal of this language is to simplify the formal analysis and specification of planning problems that are intended for safety-critical applications such as power management or automated rendezvous in future manned spacecraft. The new language has been named the Abstract Plan Preparation Language (APPL). A translator from APPL to NDDL has been developed in support of the Spacecraft Autonomy for Vehicles and Habitats Project (SAVH) sponsored by the Explorations Technology Development Program, which is seeking to mature autonomy technology for application to the new Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) that will replace the Space Shuttle.

Concrete and abstract Voronoi diagrams  

SciTech Connect

The Voronoi diagram of a set of sites is a partition of the plane into regions, one to each site, such that the region of each site contains all points of the plane that are closer to this site than to the other ones. Such partitions are of great importance to computer science and many other fields. The challenge is to compute Voronoi diagrams quickly. The problem is that their structure depends on the notion of distance and the sort of site. In this book the author proposes a unifying approach by introducing abstract Voronoi diagrams. These are based on the concept of bisecting curves which are required to have some simple properties that are actually possessed by most bisectors of concrete Voronoi diagrams. Abstract Voronoi diagrams can be computed efficiently and there exists a worst-case efficient algorithm of divide-and-conquer type that applies to all abstract Voronoi diagrams satisfying a certain constraint. The author shows that this constraint is fulfilled by the concrete diagrams based no large classes of metrics in the plane.

Home Office licence abstracts--an assessment.  

PubMed

Since late in 2004, brief abstracts of projects licensed under the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 have been published on the Home Office website. These are produced by the Project Licence Holders, and their publication is seen by the Home Office as contributing to greater openness and to greater public understanding of the use of animals in science, and how it is regulated. Here, we assess the value of the database for this purpose, based on an examination of the 1400 abstracts published up to January 2008. The abstracts are generally strong on justification, but often very poor at describing the likely effects on the animals used. In many cases, they lack basic information on the procedures applied, and the numbers, and even the species, of animals involved. A significant number of projects lack abstracts altogether. In order to ensure that the database gives a complete and balanced picture of animal use in research, we consider that it should be mandatory to submit an abstract, which should include at least the species and numbers of animals used, the adverse effects they are likely to experience, and the severity limits assigned to the procedures applied to them. The value of the database would also be improved greatly, if it were more readily searchable, at least by species, level of severity, and broad area of research. PMID:18826336

Finding Feasible Abstract Counter-Examples  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A strength of model checking is its ability to automate the detection of subtle system errors and produce traces that exhibit those errors. Given the high computational cost of model checking most researchers advocate the use of aggressive property-preserving abstractions. Unfortunately, the more aggressively a system is abstracted the more infeasible behavior it will have. Thus, while abstraction enables efficient model checking it also threatens the usefulness of model checking as a defect detection tool, since it may be difficult to determine whether a counter-example is feasible and hence worth developer time to analyze. We have explored several strategies for addressing this problem by extending an explicit-state model checker, Java PathFinder (JPF), to search for and analyze counter-examples in the presence of abstractions. We demonstrate that these techniques effectively preserve the defect detection ability of model checking in the presence of aggressive abstraction by applying them to check properties of several abstracted multi-threaded Java programs. These new capabilities are not specific to JPF and can be easily adapted to other model checking frameworks; we describe how this was done for the Bandera toolset.

The collision of Title III and Title V: A potential permitting and enforcement nightmare  

SciTech Connect

The Clean Air Act of 1990 (CAA) mandated that all facilities classified as major were to obtain a Federal Title V operating permit. In addition, any facility, either major or minor, which emits certain chemicals or compounds above a specific single quantity limit or a total aggregate limit are subject to Title III requirements and are required to obtain a Title V permit as well. The problem with obtaining a Title V permit for Title III substances is there is limited data, at least for the utilities sources, on emission factors and emission rates for many of the Title III listed chemical compounds. In addition, the emission data that exists is very conservative, and if used, would show the facilities to be significant emitters of hazardous air emissions, while actual emissions are significantly less. This could lead a facility to applying for a Title V permit unnecessarily, a time consuming process at best. In Iowa, facilities submitted the first Title V permit applications in 1994. The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is currently in the process of reviewing the submittals prior to issuing operating permits. Title III has not been addressed at all in the submittals and therefore will not be included in this round of finished permits that are to be issued. The outcome of this is that the Title V permits will have to be opened and amended to include the applicable Title III operating conditions and constraints. This paper will examine the areas where Title III and Title V collide and the potential permitting and enforcement issues that will have to be faced by the facilities that operate under these permits. This paper is based on the opinions of two of the three responsible parties (facilities and consultants) that are dealing with the potential permitting and enforcement wreckage before the collision occurs.

Abstraction Planning in Real Time  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

When a planning agent works in a complex, real-world domain, it is unable to plan for and store all possible contingencies and problem situations ahead of time. The agent needs to be able to fall back on an ability to construct plans at run time under time constraints. This thesis presents a method for planning at run time that incrementally builds up plans at multiple levels of abstraction. The plans are continually updated by information from the world, allowing the planner to adjust its plan to a changing world during the planning process. All the information is represented over intervals of time, allowing the planner to reason about durations, deadlines, and delays within its plan. In addition to the method, the thesis presents a formal model of the planning process and uses the model to investigate planning strategies. The method has been implemented, and experiments have been run to validate the overall approach and the theoretical model.

What every designated representative should know about Title IV and Title V enforcement provisions  

SciTech Connect

Title IV of the Clean Air Act not only created a regulatory program unlike any other under the Clean Air Act, but also established a unique position--the designated representative--as an integral part of the program. The designated representative is required to meet certain basic obligations under Title IV, and a panoply of enforcement mechanisms are available to EPA in the event of noncompliance with these obligations. Also, because a designated representative may take on responsibilities under the permit provisions of Title V of the Clean Air Act, the designated representative can also be subject to an enforcement action for failure to comply with certain Title V permit requirements. This paper considers the basic definition of the designated representative under EPA`s Title IV and Title V regulations, identifies the responsibilities assigned to the designated representative, and then analyzes the enforcement mechanisms that may be applied to the designated representative if a regulatory responsibility has not been satisfied.
