Exploring Hindu Indian emotion expressions: evidence for accurate recognition by Americans and Indians.  

PubMed

Subjects were presented with videotaped expressions of 10 classic Hindu emotions. The 10 emotions were (in rough translation from Sanskrit) anger, disgust, fear, heroism, humor-amusement, love, peace, sadness, shame-embarrassment, and wonder. These emotions (except for shame) and their portrayal were described about 2,000 years ago in the Natyasastra, and are enacted in the contemporary Hindu classical dance. The expressions are dynamic and include both the face and the body, especially the hands. Three different expressive versions of each emotion were presented, along with 15 neutral expressions. American and Indian college students responded to each of these 45 expressions using either a fixed-response format (10 emotion names and "neutral/no emotion") or a totally free response format. Participants from both countries were quite accurate in identifying emotions correctly using both fixed-choice (65% correct, expected value of 9%) and free-response (61% correct, expected value close to zero) methods.

Influence of the Indian Ocean Dipole on following year's El Niño - a story of David and Goliath?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) consists of irregular episodes of warm (El Niño) and cold (La Niña) conditions in the tropical Pacific Ocean, with major socioeconomic and environmental impacts globally. Forecasting ENSO at long lead times remains a challenging issue. The Indian Ocean also exhibits interannual climate fluctuations known as "Indian Ocean Dipole" (IOD). Positive (negative) phases of the IOD tend to co-occur with El Niño (La Niña), and previous works have explored the interactions between simultaneous IOD and ENSO events. Here, we show that a negative (positive) IOD is an efficient predictor of El Niño (La Niña) 14 months before its peak, as demonstrated by a simple linear hindcast model. Observations and model analyses suggest that the IOD modulates the strength of the Walker circulation in fall. The quick IOD demise in November-December induces a sudden collapse of anomalous zonal winds over the Pacific. This external forcing eventually leads to ENSO development through the advective-reflective conceptual model. This study hence suggests that improving the observing system and simulation of interannual variability in the Indian Ocean will benefit to ENSO forecasts.

Racism in the electronic age: Role of online forums in expressing racial attitudes about American Indians.  

PubMed

This study investigated racial attitudes about American Indians that are electronically expressed in newspaper online forums by examining the University of North Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname and logo used for their athletic teams. Using a modified Consensual Qualitative Research (CQR) methodology to analyze over 1,000 online forum comments, the research team generated themes, domains, and core ideas from the data. The core ideas included (a) surprise, (b) power and privilege, (c) trivialization, and (d) denigration. The findings indicated that a critical mass of online forum comments represented ignorance about American Indian culture and even disdain toward American Indians by providing misinformation, perpetuating stereotypes, and expressing overtly racist attitudes toward American Indians. Results of this study were explained through the lens of White power and privilege, as well as through the framework of two-faced racism (Picca & Feagin, 2007). Results provide support to previous findings that indicate the presence of Native-themed mascots, nicknames, or logos can negatively impact the psychological well-being of American Indians.

Using stories to disseminate research: the attributes of representative stories.  

PubMed

When researchers communicate their findings to patients, clinicians, policy-makers, or media, they may find it helpful to supplement quantitative data with stories about individuals who represent themes in their research. Whether such stories are gathered during the research itself or identified from other sources, researchers must develop strategies for assessing their representativeness. This paper proposes 5 attributes of representative stories: (1) expression of important themes in the research, (2) explicit location in the "distribution" of stories that exemplify the theme, (3) verifiability, (4) acknowledgment of uncertainty, and (5) compelling narration. This paper summarizes research on substance abuse among physicians, and uses these 5 attributes to assess the representativeness of a published case report and a fictional short story about addicted physicians. While neither story is fully representative of the research, the process of evaluating these stories illustrates an approach to identifying representative stories for use in disseminating research.

Heterologous expression and characterization of Indian Sahiwal cattle (Bos indicus) alpha inhibin.  

PubMed

Inhibin is a non-steroidal glycoprotein hormone of gonadal origin with major action as negative feedback control of the production of FSH by the anterior pituitary gland. The physiological role of inhibin has led to the development of inhibin immunogens for fertility enhancement in farm animals. It is envisaged that a reduction of endogenous inhibin secretion would increase FSH concentrations and thus offers a potential for increasing the number of ovulatory follicles in the ovary. The present work was carried out to produce recombinant bovine (Indian Sahiwal Cattle; Bos indicus) alpha inhibin (bINH-?) in E. coli by optimizing its expression and purification in biologically active form and to study its immunological characterization. A bacterial protein expression vector system based on the phage T(5) promoter was used. The bINH-? encoding gene was successfully cloned and expressed in E. coli and the purified recombinant bINH-? was characterized. Recombinant bINH-? (25 µg mL(-1)) immunized guinea pigs had a significant increase in litter size compared to the control group. These results indicate a role for recombinant bINH-? as a fecundity vaccine to enhance the ovulation rate and litter size in animals. PMID:22537057

Identification of the transforming activity of Indian hedgehog by retroviral expression screening.  

PubMed

To identify novel cancer-promoting genes in biliary tract cancer (BTC), we constructed a retroviral cDNA expression library from a clinical specimen of BTC with anomalous pancreaticobiliary duct junction (APBDJ), and used the library for a focus formation assay with 3T3 fibroblasts. One of the cDNAs rescued from transformed foci was found to encode Indian hedgehog homolog (IHH). The oncogenic potential of IHH was confirmed both in vitro with the focus formation assay and in vivo with a tumorigenicity assay in nude mice. The isolated IHH cDNA had no sequence alterations, suggesting that upregulation of IHH expression may contribute to malignant transformation. Quantitation of IHH mRNA among clinical specimens has revealed that the expression level of IHH in BTC with APBDJ is higher than that in BTC without APBDJ and than in non-cancerous biliary tissues. Our data thus implicate a direct role of IHH in the carcinogenesis of BTC with APBDJ. PMID:19793350

Expression of Arabidopsis phytochelatin synthase in Indian mustard (Brassica juncea) plants enhances tolerance for Cd and Zn.  

PubMed

Phytochelatins (PCs) are heavy metal binding peptides that play an important role in sequestration and detoxification of heavy metals in plants. In this study, our goal was to develop transgenic plants with increased tolerance for and accumulation of heavy metals from soil by expressing an Arabidopsis thaliana AtPCS1 gene, encoding phytochelatin synthase (PCS), in Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L.). A 35S promoter fused to a FLAG-tagged AtPCS1 cDNA was expressed in Indian mustard, and transgenic lines, designated pc lines, were evaluated for tolerance to and accumulation of Cd and Zn. Transgenic plants with moderate AtPCS1 expression levels showed significantly higher tolerance to Cd and Zn stress, but accumulated significantly less Cd and Zn than wild type plants in both shoot and root tissues. However, transgenic plants with highest expression of the transgene did not exhibit enhanced Cd and Zn tolerance. Shoots of Cd-treated pc plants had significantly higher levels of phytochelatins and thiols than wild-type plants. Significantly lower concentrations of gluthatione in Cd-treated shoot and root tissues of transgenic plants were observed. Moderate expression levels of phytochelatin synthase improved the ability of Indian mustard to tolerate certain levels of heavy metals, but at the same time did not increase the accumulation potential for Cd and Zn.

Surface expression of the Reunion Plumehead as witnessed by tectonics in the Indian Ocean  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The arrival of a mantle plumehead at the Earth's surface is inferred to have occurred underneath India around 67 Ma, with eruption of the Deccan traps and associated hotspot track to the present day position of the Reunion plume. It was recently shown that this event had a major effect on the global motions, particularly the Indo-Atlantic plates between 68 and 45 Ma (Cande and Stegman, Nature, 2011). The primary evidence for this is the observation that the motions of the Indian and African plates appear to have been coupled during this period: when the Indian plate speeds up between 68 and 66 Ma (from 80 to 180 mm/yr relative to Africa), the convergence of Africa with Eurasia slows down and perhaps stops, and when the Indian plate slows down between 52 and 45 Ma, Africa-Eurasia convergence speeds up. The superfast motion of India (roughly 180 mm/yr) relative to Africa is well documented by seafloor spreading anomalies between 66 and 63 Ma, corresponding to the formation of the Deccan traps. Clearly, this event should have a large surface expression locally, and we have been reevaluating the tectonics of this region within this context, in particular the reorganization of mid-ocean ridge systems in response to the arrival of a mantle plumehead. A broad topographic swell associated with the mantle plumehead may have caused dynamic uplift across the region even as early as 70 Ma. Continental rifting between the Seychelles microcontinent and India occurred directly over the location of the Deccan plume. One idea is that a distinct, but short-lived, Seychelles microplate existed during this time period. India-Africa separation evolved from a two-plate system (with Seychelles part of the Indian plate) into a three-plate system (with formation of the Seychelles microplate), and finally back into a two-plate system (with the Seychelles part of the Somali plate). The suggestion that a distinct Seychelles microplate existed is largely based upon the observation that during the short period between 65-62 Ma, seafloor spreading was occurring simultaneously within both the Mascarene basin as well as across the newly formed Carlsberg ridge. This indicates that the Seychelles microcontinent was isolated by divergent plate boundaries on both its southwest and northeast sides. Euler pole rotations based on magnetic anomalies across the Carlsberg ridge result in the inability to close the India-Antarctica-Africa plate circuit during the period between 65-50 Ma (Cande et al., 2010). This can be solved by introducing the Seychelles microplate into the plate circuit, however this does not help constrain the exact time of its formation nor how long it persisted. It is reasonable to expect uplift from the Deccan plumehead led to a plate boundary reorganization, shifting India-Seychelles seafloor spreading from the Gop Rift in the Arabian Sea to an incipient Carlsberg Ridge while simultaneously causing cessation of Seychelles-Madagascar spreading in the Mascarene Basin. If this scenario is correct, it provides further key observations that can be used as constraints for geodynamic models.

Applying community-based participatory research principles to the development of a smoking-cessation program for American Indian teens: "telling our story".  

PubMed

Community-based participatory research provides communities and researchers with opportunities to develop interventions that are effective as well as acceptable and culturally competent. The present project responds to the voices of the North Carolina American Indian (AI) community and the desire for their youth to recognize tobacco addiction and commercial cigarette smoking as debilitating to their health and future. Seven community-based participatory principles led to the AI adaptation of the Not On Tobacco teen-smoking-cessation program and fostered sound research and meaningful results among an historically exploited population. Success was attributed to values-driven, community-based principles that (a) assured recognition of a community-driven need, (b) built on strengths of the tribes, (c) nurtured partnerships in all project phases, (d) integrated the community's cultural knowledge, (e) produced mutually beneficial tools/products, (f) built capacity through co-learning and empowerment, (g) used an iterative process of development, and (h) shared findings/ knowledge with all partners.

Intra-articular Injection of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) Promote Rat Meniscal Regeneration by Being Activated to Express Indian Hedgehog that Enhances Expression of Type II Collagen  

PubMed Central

Objective Meniscal regeneration was previously shown to be enhanced by injection of mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) but the mode of action of the MSCs was not established. The aim of this study was to define how injection of MSCs enhances meniscal regeneration. Design A hemi-meniscectomy model in rats was used. Rat-MSCs (rMSCs) or human-MSCs (hMSCs) were injected into the right knee joint after the surgery, and PBS was injected into the left. The groups were compared macroscopically and histologically at 2, 4, and 8 w. The changes in transcription in both human and rat genes were assayed by species-specific microarrays and real-time RT-PCRs. Results Although the number of hMSCs decreased with time, hMSCs enhanced meniscal regeneration in a manner similar to rMSCs. hMSCs injection increased expression of rat type II collagen (rat-Col II), and inhibited osteoarthritis progression. The small fraction of hMSCs were activated to express high levels of a series of genes including Indian hedgehog (Ihh), parathyroid hormone-like hormone (PTHLH), and bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP2). The presence of hMSCs triggered the subsequent expression of rat-Col II. An antagonist of hedgehog signaling inhibited the expression of rat-Col II and an agonist increased expression of rat-Col II in the absence of hMSCs. Conclusions Despite rapid reduction in cell numbers, intra-articular injected hMSCs were activated to express Ihh, PTHLH, and BMP2 and contributed to meniscal regeneration. The hedgehog signaling was essential in enhancing the expression of rat-Col II, but several other factors provided by the hMSCs probably contributed to the repair.

Clinico-pathological correlations of fatty acid synthase expression in retinoblastoma: an Indian cohort study.  

PubMed

Retinoblastoma (RB), the most common intra-ocular malignancy in children under 5 years of age, has an estimated incidence of about 2000 a year in India, where most cases are in advanced stage at the time of diagnosis. Newer therapeutic approaches would reduce the morbidity of chemotherapy in children with RB. Fatty Acid Synthase (FASN), a lipogenic multi-enzyme complex, is minimally expressed in normal human tissues and over expressed in many cancers, making it an attractive target for cancer therapy. We analyzed RB tissues for FASN protein expression by immunohistochemistry, western blot, and ELISA, and FASN mRNA expression by RT-PCR. FASN expression was correlated with the clinico-pathological characteristics of the tumors. FASN immunostaining was positive in all the 44 RB tissues analyzed (100%). However, FASN expression was heterogeneous within the tumor samples. Tumors with invasion of choroid, optic nerve, orbit and/or retinal pigment epithelium showed significantly higher FASN immunoreactivity than the tumors without invasion (P<0.05), supported by western analysis (P<0.05). FASN expression was significantly high in poorly differentiated retinoblastomas (P<0.05). FASN protein and FASN mRNA estimated by ELISA and RT-PCR respectively showed multi-fold expression over the non-neoplastic muller glial cells that varied quantitatively between tumor tissues. FASN mRNA over-expression was substantially lower than the corresponding FASN protein expression values. The present study reports (i) markedly high expression of FASN protein in poorly differentiated and in invasive retinoblastomas, and (ii) multi-fold over-expression of FASN mRNA and protein in RB tissues, although at varying levels, indicating FASN to be a potential therapeutic target in retinoblastoma management.

Transgenic Indian mustard (Brassica juncea) plants expressing an Arabidopsis phytochelatin synthase (AtPCS1) exhibit enhanced As and Cd tolerance.  

PubMed

Phytochelatins (PCs) are post-translationally synthesized thiol reactive peptides that play important roles in detoxification of heavy metal and metalloids in plants and other living organisms. The overall goal of this study is to develop transgenic plants with increased tolerance for and accumulation of heavy metals and metalloids from soil by expressing an Arabidopsis thaliana AtPCS1 gene, encoding phytochelatin synthase (PCS), in Indian mustard (Brassica juncea L.). A FLAG-tagged AtPCS1 gDNA, under its native promoter, is expressed in Indian mustard, and transgenic pcs lines have been compared with wild-type plants for tolerance to and accumulation of cadmium (Cd) and arsenic (As). Compared to wild type plants, transgenic plants exhibit significantly higher tolerance to Cd and As. Shoots of Cd-treated pcs plants have significantly higher concentrations of PCs and thiols than those of wild-type plants. Shoots of wild-type plants accumulated significantly more Cd than those of transgenic plants, while accumulation of As in transgenic plants was similar to that in wild type plants. Although phytochelatin synthase improves the ability of Indian mustard to tolerate higher levels of the heavy metal Cd and the metalloid As, it does not increase the accumulation potential of these metals in the above ground tissues of Indian mustard plants.

The study describes cytochrome P450 1A1 (CYPA1) expression in the skin of different cetacean species (Megaptera novaeangliae, n=15; Stenella attenuata, n=7 and Stenella longirostris, n=24) from the Mozambique Channel island of Mayotte. Immunohistochemical examination was performed with a monoclonal antibody against scup cytochrome CYPA1. The sex was determined using a molecular approach consisting in the genotyping sex-specific genes. CYPA1 was detected at the junction between epidermis and blubber on dolphins only, mostly in the endothelial cells. Similar observation was obtained in the dermis of one M. novaeangliae. Immunohistochemical slides were scored to evaluate the expression of the CYPA1 and a higher expression was observed in S. longirostris, suggesting a higher exposure to pollutants for this species.

Uncoupling protein-2 (UCP2) gene expression in subcutaneous and omental adipose tissue of Asian Indians  

PubMed Central

Objective UCP2 is a mitochondrial membrane transporter expressed in white adipose tissue and involved in regulation of energy balance. In this present study, we examined the depot specific comparison of UCP2 gene expression in different metabolic states, in order to explore the potential role of UCP2 in human obesity and diabetes. We also determined UCP2’s association with adiponectin and insulin resistance with different parameters of the metabolic syndrome. Methods Subcutaneous adipose tissue (SAT) and omental adipose tissues (OAT) were obtained from 69 subjects, including 23 non-obese controls, 26 obese and 20 obese T2DM patients. Metabolic syndrome and other clinical features were studied. Adiponectin and UCP2 gene expression was quantitated by Real Time Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR). Results UCP2 gene expression was significantly reduced in obese and diabetic patients compared with controls. Interestingly, we found that UCP2 gene expression was reduced more in omental fat compared with subcutaneous fat and this effect was observed only in males but not in females. Partial correlation analysis showed significant association with the obesity parameters waist circumference, insulin and HOMA-IR, the lipid parameter triglyceride and the adipokine adiponectin. Conclusion Reduced UCP2 gene expression in obese and diabetic patients and its association with obesity parameters and HOMA-IR confirms its role as a candidate gene in the study of obesity and diabetes in our population. Also, its association with triglycerides implicates its role in lipid metabolism. An association between adiponectin and UCP2 gene expression may provide us with an innovative therapeutic strategy to prevent obesity related diseases, like diabetes and CVD.

Purification, characterization and expression of two vitellogenins in the Indian freshwater murrel Channa punctatus.  

PubMed

The present study was undertaken to characterize different vitellogenins in Channa punctatus. Protein purification by gel chromatography followed by fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) revealed existence of two different Vg forms. Liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrophotometry (LC-MS/MS) suggested the existence of Vga and Vgb. Cloning of partial sequences of vga and vgb mRNA and phylogenetic analysis substantiated the existence of two vitellogenins. Real time PCR for vga and vgb genes from liver of estradiol-17? (E2) treated fish reveals difference in expression levels of transcripts of these two genes. vgb is expressed at lower dose of estradiol suggesting a higher sensitivity to estradiol. The present study thus proposes different regulatory control for the expression of these two genes and vgb as a superior biomarker than vga to assess exposure of C. punctatus to environmental estrogens.

SketchStory: Telling More Engaging Stories with Data through Freeform Sketching.  

PubMed

Presenting and communicating insights to an audience-telling a story-is one of the main goals of data exploration. Even though visualization as a storytelling medium has recently begun to gain attention, storytelling is still underexplored in information visualization and little research has been done to help people tell their stories with data. To create a new, more engaging form of storytelling with data, we leverage and extend the narrative storytelling attributes of whiteboard animation with pen and touch interactions. We present SketchStory, a data-enabled digital whiteboard that facilitates the creation of personalized and expressive data charts quickly and easily. SketchStory recognizes a small set of sketch gestures for chart invocation, and automatically completes charts by synthesizing the visuals from the presenter-provided example icon and binding them to the underlying data. Furthermore, SketchStory allows the presenter to move and resize the completed data charts with touch, and filter the underlying data to facilitate interactive exploration. We conducted a controlled experiment for both audiences and presenters to compare SketchStory with a traditional presentation system, Microsoft PowerPoint. Results show that the audience is more engaged by presentations done with SketchStory than PowerPoint. Eighteen out of 24 audience participants preferred SketchStory to PowerPoint. Four out of five presenter participants also favored SketchStory despite the extra effort required for presentation. PMID:24051808

Nurses from all over the world contributed their stories to Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul and the recently released Chicken Soup for the Nurse's Soul, Second Dose. In this new department, I'll share some of these stories with you-real anecdotes about the challenges and joys of being a nurse.Forever, nurses have been sharing their stories at bedsides, break rooms, and nurses' stations to inspire and uphold each other. Stories from students help us recall why we entered this profession in the first place. Stories from seasoned nurses reveal why we stay.

Understanding Stories Through Morals and Remindings

Many narratives are memorable for the abstract planning advice they contain, usually in the form of failures which narrative characters experienced during either planning, or plan execu­ tion. The planning advice, or moral, contained within such stories is often expressed in terms of sayings,

Indian Summer  

SciTech Connect

This paper focuses on preserving and strengthening two resources culturally and socially important to the Shoshone-Bannock Indian Tribe on the Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho; their young people and the Pacific-Northwest Salmon. After learning that salmon were not returning in significant numbers to ancestral fishing waters at headwater spawning sites, tribal youth wanted to know why. As a result, the Indian Summer project was conceived to give Shoshone-Bannock High School students the opportunity to develop hands-on, workable solutions to improve future Indian fishing and help make the river healthy again. The project goals were to increase the number of fry introduced into the streams, teach the Shoshone-Bannock students how to use scientific methodologies, and get students, parents, community members, and Indian and non-Indian mentors excited about learning. The students chose an egg incubation experiment to help increase self-sustaining, natural production of steelhead trout, and formulated and carried out a three step plan to increase the hatch-rate of steelhead trout in Idaho waters. With the help of local companies, governmental agencies, scientists, and mentors students have been able to meet their project goals, and at the same time, have learned how to use scientific methods to solve real life problems, how to return what they have used to the water and land, and how to have fun and enjoy life while learning.

This patient's story was constructed from a study designed to describe how the art of nursing was perceived and understood by patients during a critical illness. Two in-depth interviews were conducted during the recovery phase of this person's illness to answer the question, "When is nursing (considered) art?" The initial lead-in to the discussion was, "Tell me a story about a nursing situation that really stood out in your mind--one that was significant and meaningful." The interviews were tape recorded, transcribed, condensed into a short story and shared with the participant. The researcher, also, composed a response to the person's story that personally expressed what the story triggered for her.

A story superiority effect for disgust, fear, embarrassment, and pride.

Past studies found that, for preschoolers, a story specifying a situational cause and behavioural consequence is a better cue to fear and disgust than is the facial expression of those two emotions, but the facial expressions used were static. Two studies (Study 1: N = 68, 36-68 months; Study 2: N = 72, 49-90 months) tested whether this effect could be reversed when the expressions were dynamic and included facial, postural, and vocal cues. Children freely labelled emotions in three conditions: story, still face, and dynamic expression. Story remained a better cue than still face or dynamic expression for fear and disgust and also for the later emerging emotions of embarrassment and pride. PMID:23901846

Somatotropin-mediated gene expression profiling of differentially displayed ESTs during lactation in Indian buffalo (Bubalus bubalis).  

PubMed

The study of bovine mammary gland functional genomics requires appropriate cDNA library collections to access gene expression patterns from different developmental and physiological stages. The present study was undertaken with the objective to identify candidate genes involved in the process of increased milk synthesis following 0, 48 and 96 h of recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) treatment to Surti buffalo (Bubalus bubalis) through differential display reverse transcriptase PCR (DDRT-PCR). Of a total 50 sequenced DD bands, 64% of ESTs were differentially expressed (appeared only in post-treatment samples, i.e. 48 h and 96 h) and 36% were up-regulated after rbST treatment. Of the ESTs 32%were found to be located on Bos taurus chromosome 24 (equivalent to buffalo chromosome 22), whereas 16% of ESTs could not be mapped, indicating that they are specific to buffalo. Quantitative real time PCR assay of 15 ESTs revealed transcript level surge in 13 ESTs, and decline in one EST, while one showed up-regulation in expression level at 48 h while down-regulation at 96 h. This study indicates more than 30 novel transcripts, with unknown function, involved in increased milk synthesis and also the involvement of many more genes in the physiology of milk production than once thought.

Analysis of serotonin receptor 2A gene (HTR2A): association study with autism spectrum disorder in the Indian population and investigation of the gene expression in peripheral blood leukocytes.  

PubMed

Several studies suggest involvement of serotoninergic system in the pathophysiology of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The 5-HT receptor binding studies using (3)H-lysergic acid diethylamide ((3)H-LSD) and linkage analysis provided evidences to consider HTR2A as a potential candidate gene for ASD. The three SNPs, -1438A/G (rs6311), 102T/C (rs6313) and 1354C/T (rs6314) of HTR2A have been well studied in the etiology of various neuropsychiatric disorders. But studies on association of this gene with ASD are limited to two reports from American and Korean populations. Additionally there are reports, which demonstrated paternal imprinting of HTR2A with expression from only one allele. So far no reports are available on HTR2A and its association with any neuropsychiatric disorders from Indian population. Therefore, the present study investigates association of the above mentioned three markers of HTR2A with ASD in Indian population using population and family-based approaches. The study also deals with allelic expression pattern of HTR2A in Peripheral Blood Leukocytes (PBLs) to understand the parental imprinting status. The genotyping analyses were carried out for probands, parents and controls. The subsequent association analyses did not show association of these markers with ASD. So, HTR2A is unlikely to be a genetic marker for ASD in Indian population. The expression analyses showed absence of monoallelic expression, suggesting lack of parental imprinting of HTR2A gene. However, we noticed methylation of the CpG sites at -1438A/G and 102T/C loci of HTR2A gene. Further bioinformatics analysis revealed absence of CpG islands in the promoter of the gene supporting biallelic expression pattern of HTR2A in PBLs. PMID:19647026

Analyzing stories told by an elementary science teacher in a fifth-grade classroom  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The purpose of this qualitative study was to analyze and interpret the stories told by one teacher, Ms. M, in a fifth grade science classroom. In this study, stories are defined as teacher utterances that are used in first person or third person narrative view, and are related to an experience that occurred outside the classroom. This research answers questions concerning: (a) what types of stories Ms. M tells during science instruction; (b) when these stories occur in the classroom; and (c) what pedagogical functions do these stories serve in the classroom. Utilizing theories on the social construction of knowledge and narrative cognition, stories told may be formed through multiple paths that follow no logical expression to make sense of the context and to connect to its audience. Therefore, this study provides insight into how Ms. M made sense of science with her stories and the ways in which they worked with her students. The results illlustrated that the types of stories found with Ms. M were autobiographical, biographical, fictional, or based on current events. These stories occurred when the teacher initiated the discussion by bringing forth a definition, a question or reinforcing a concept. However, the stories were triggered by students to a greater degree with their questions, concerns, observations or their own stories or explanations. Finally, all pedagogical functions of stories were identified with Ms. M's stories: promotion of engagement or attention of students, building community, clarifying concepts or vocabulary, activation and building of background knowledge and disclosure of teacher role and voice. Ms. M stories exemplified her sense-making of science and connections to her own life that her students were eventually able to make for themselves.

The Amtrak Story  

SciTech Connect

The `Amtrak Story` is a well written, readable, but comprehensive and fully documented history of Amtrak. Amtrak`s story is preceded by an account of the perilous state of the railroad passenger service prior to its inauguration. The beginnings of federal involvement with long haul passenger service are chronicled, in particular the High Speed Ground Transportation Act of 1965 and the establishment of the Metroliner service in the Northeast Corridor. In the 1980`s, as the Reagan Administration and Amtrak management fought with Amtrak`s labor unions, reform was made in work rules, employee pay, and benefits. The final chapter, `Amtrak`s Future`, indicates that public support for intercity rail service has contributed to Amtrak`s survival and also the huge costs society must bear if air and road transportation are relied on exclusively. The author notes that trains are environmentally friendly, fuel efficient, and safe; also that states, which are closer to the public than the federal government, are now inventing in passenger rail. For anyone interested in railroads or passenger transportation, this book is required reading.

Tales of the absent father: applying the "story" metaphor in family therapy.  

PubMed

Father-absent families often function with a lively father-presence conveyed by stories the family members share. The metaphor of "story" proposed by social constructionist and narrative approaches to therapy helps us to conceptualize the role these family stories play. The story metaphor draws attention to four issues: the rendition of what is said and unsaid about the father; the connections among past, present, and future ideas about father and family; the reciprocal influences of expression and experiences, seen in the family's stories and interactions; and the impact on the family and the therapeutic process of dominant narratives about father-absence. Exploration of these issues demonstrates how client and therapist stories about the absent father mediate the impact of father-absence on the family. PMID:8163005

The story of oxygen.  

PubMed

The history of oxygen from discovery to clinical application for patients with chronic lung disease represents a long and storied journey. Within a relatively short period, early investigators not only discovered oxygen but also recognized its importance to life and its role in respiration. The application of oxygen to chronic lung disease, however, took several centuries. In the modern era, physiologists pursued the chemical nature of oxygen and its physiologic interaction with cellular metabolism and gas transport. It took brazen clinicians, however, to pursue oxygen as a therapeutic resource for patients with chronic lung disease because of the concern in the 20th century of the risks of oxygen toxicity. Application of ambulatory oxygen devices allowed landmark investigations of the long-term effects of continuous oxygen that established its safety and efficacy. Although now well established for hypoxic patients, many questions remain regarding the benefits of oxygen for varying severity and types of chronic lung disease. PMID:23271817

Living My Family's Story

Background Based on known or suggested genetic risk factors, a growing number of women now live with knowledge of a potential cancer diagnosis that may never occur. Given this, it is important to understand the meaning of living with high risk for hereditary breast cancer. Objective The objective of the study was to explore how women at high risk for hereditary breast cancer (1) form self-identity, (2) apply self-care strategies toward risk, and (3) describe the meaning of care through a high-risk breast program. Methods Interpretive hermeneutic phenomenology guided the qualitative research method. Women at high risk for hereditary breast cancer were recruited from a high-risk breast program. Open-ended interview questions focused on experiences living as women managing high risk for breast cancer. Consistent with hermeneutic methodology, the principal investigator led a team to analyze the interview transcripts. Results Twenty women participated in in-depth interviews. Analysis revealed that women describe their own identity based on their family story and grieve over actual and potential familial loss. This experience influences self-care strategies, including seeking care from hereditary breast cancer risk experts for early detection and prevention, as well as maintaining a connection for early treatment “when” diagnosis occurs. Conclusions Healthy women living with high risk for hereditary breast cancer are living within the context of their family cancer story, which influences how they define themselves and engage in self-care. Implications for Practice Findings present important practical, research, and policy information regarding health promotion, psychosocial assessment, and support for women living with this risk.

Emotions: An Indian perspective  

PubMed Central

The present paper is an attempt to understand emotions and the affect from Indian traditional point of view. In the Indian philosophical texts’ detailed descriptions of emotions are not available nor are dealt with as a separate concept. This view of emotions lays emphasis on desires as the root cause of emotional upheavals. They are seen as modification of desire and attachment. The desires are seen as arising from the contact and attachment of the ego or ahamkara with the external world and are caused by a sense of imperfection, incompleteness or non-fulfillment. Ego or ahamkara is differentiated from the true Self or atman. Emotions are viewed as springs of action and are bipolar in nature. According to Patanjali's Yoga Shastra, suffering is due to ignorance about one's true “self” (avidya). Hence, suffering or dukha arises from within and not from the outside world. Bhagvadgita traces all emotional experiences to the gunas, i.e., sattva, rajas, and tamas. Works of Bharathmuni have contributed to the understanding of emotional experiences. Concept of rasa or aesthetic relish is central to this approach to understanding affective experiences as dealt with in the Natyashastra of Bharathamuni. These views underline the recommended path for self-transformation. Regulating emotions, both emotional experience and emotional expression, is an integral part of the recommended “principles of living.”

StoryFlow: Tracking the Evolution of Stories.  

PubMed

Storyline visualizations, which are useful in many applications, aim to illustrate the dynamic relationships between entities in a story. However, the growing complexity and scalability of stories pose great challenges for existing approaches. In this paper, we propose an efficient optimization approach to generating an aesthetically appealing storyline visualization, which effectively handles the hierarchical relationships between entities over time. The approach formulates the storyline layout as a novel hybrid optimization approach that combines discrete and continuous optimization. The discrete method generates an initial layout through the ordering and alignment of entities, and the continuous method optimizes the initial layout to produce the optimal one. The efficient approach makes real-time interactions (e.g., bundling and straightening) possible, thus enabling users to better understand and track how the story evolves. Experiments and case studies are conducted to demonstrate the effectiveness and usefulness of the optimization approach. PMID:24051810

Indian Contribution to IPY Outreach Activities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

India is involved in a major way in both the aspects, i.e. scientific as well as outreach activities, of the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007-2008. National Centre for Antarctic & Ocean Research (NCAOR, under the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India) is acting as the national coordinating agency. The launching of the Indian chapter of the IPY 2007-2008 took place at NCAOR and parallely at Jawaharlal Nehru National University (JNU), New Delhi on 1st March 2007. Two Indian scientific proposals have been endorsed by IPY, which are Project id. 70 and Project id. 129. Simultaneously, India is actively involved in the outreach activities related to IPY. NCAOR had sponsored the visit of two college students to Antarctica during the 25th Indian Antarctic Expedition (IAE). A series of lectures were delivered by one of them at more than twenty schools & colleges in the rural & suburban areas of Indian state of Maharashtra regarding the wonders of Antarctica to educate the general public and popularize polar science. NCAOR is the only Indian institute that has the capability to store and sample Antarctic ice core with special Cold Room facility that is maintained at -20°C. Students from several schools and colleges and scientists/visitors from various Indian institutes/foreign countries have visited NCAOR to get first hand experience of polar research. NCAOR has also collaborated with WWF-India (World Wide Fund for Nature) for carrying out the outreach activities to schools throughout the vast expanses of India. In this regard a calendar of event was released on 1st March 2007, which lists various competitions and activities that will be held during 2007-2008. It includes competitions such as poster & model making, stamp designing, petition writing etc. for school children. The first competition, poster making & slogan writing, was held at New Delhi on April 10, 2007 and prizes were distributed by the H'ble Minister of Science & Technology and Earth Sciences on the Earth Day. Further under the aegis of IPY 2007-2008, a 14 year old Indian student from Father Agnel School, New Delhi was selected by the Canadian organization, Student On Ice, for their annual Arctic expedition that was held from August 2nd to 17th, 2007. The participants were accompanied by an international team of polar scientists, experts and educators. The participant on return will share their experiences with fellow students to introduce them to a world unknown to them. Further, NCAOR has supplied audio-visual & printed material on polar science to Nehru Science Centre (unit of National council of Science Museums, Ministry of Culture, Government of India) which is organizing exhibitions on the theme ¡§The Story of Poles¡¨ focusing on geography, environment, flora, fauna, people & importance of poles along with issues related to poles such as ozone hole, global warming etc. the exhibition will consist of graphical panels, 3D interactive exhibits, animations, charts, 3D models, computer kiosks etc. Financial sponsorship has been extended to Goa Science Centre, India & Geographical Society of the Northeast Hill Region, India for popularizing polar science and other aims of IPY to general public. Moreover, under the "Popular Book Series" initiative of the Ministry of Earth Sciences, a book entitled "Story of Antarctica" is under publication by NCAOR. Similar books on "Story of the Oceans" and "Glaciers - The Rivers of Ice" have already been published & distributed to students in different states of India. Further details can be had at the National Centre for Antarctic and Ocean Research website (www.ncaor.gov.in).

This story is the second in a series constructed from a study designed to describe how the art of nursing was perceived and understood by patients during a critical illness. Two in-depth interviews were conducted during the recovery phase of this person's illness to answer the question "When is nursing (considered) art?" The initial lead-in to the discussion was, "Tell me a story about a nursing situation that really stood out in your mind-one that was significant and meaningful," and, "What was the experience like for you?" The interviews were tape recorded, transcribed, condensed into a short story, and shared with the participant. The researcher also composed a "response" to the person's story that personally expressed what the story triggered for her. Undergraduate students were invited to reflect and respond to the "aesthetic face" of nursing from the perspective of a person who was nursed while critically ill. Two examples of student response are included. PMID:18332366

Exaggerated Claims for Interactive Stories

As advertising becomes more crucial to video games' success, developers risk promoting their products beyond the features that they can actually include. For features of interactive storytelling, the effects of making such exaggerations are not well known, as reports from industry have been anecdotal at best. In this paper, we explore the effects of making exaggerated claims for interactive stories, in the context of the theory of advertising. Results from a human user study show that female players find linear and branching stories to be significantly less enjoyable when they are advertised with exaggerated claims.

Misidentifications in Pirandello's plays and short stories.  

PubMed

Luigi Pirandello was an Italian playwright, novelist, short story writer, poet, and one of the leading dramatists of the twentieth century. Pirandello used his plays and short stories to express his life philosophy which included the irony and bitterness of self-deception. In his works, his characters possess highly complex personalities, portrayed by ongoing and overlapping conflicts between illusion and reality. These manifestations of double personalities and confusion between imagination and reality are today known as psychopathological phenomena, classified as both delusional misidentification and reduplication syndromes. Here, individuals misidentify and reduplicate places, people, or events. These delusional syndromes (Capgras, Frégoli, intermetamorphosis, syndrome of subjective doubles) occur primarily in psychiatric illnesses (i.e. schizophrenia) and organic illnesses (i.e. right hemispheric stroke). For Pirandello, reality was highly subjective in all humans. However, misidentification and reduplication syndromes can manifest when this subjectivity gets out of control. With his works, Pirandello made philosophical concepts which had previously only been discussed by intellectuals available to a much larger audience. Pirandello continued to elaborate upon this concept of mutable ego, established by Blaise Pascal in the 1600s and carried on by the French psychologist Alfred Binet. PMID:23485894

The ability of American Indian children (N = 99; 7-12 years of age) to reframe a memory of a friend's seemingly mean-spirited actions (Story 1) after hearing the friend's perspective detailing her/his good intentions (Story 2) was explored. Children in a control group heard an unrelated Story 2 and did not alter their retelling of Story 1. Good verbal skills facilitated the integration of the friend's perspective in memory for the children who heard the friend's explanation. Higher scores on the working memory and inhibition tasks were associated with higher verbal ability scores. Older children had better working memory and inhibitory skills than younger children. Cultural engagement predicted better social competence ratings but not higher memory reframing scores as predicted. PMID:21058833

The StoryGrid project undertook studying the role new interface technologies might play in education, particularly at the high school level. Unfortunately, technology often seizes center stage in high school classrooms; i.e., it becomes the topic of instruction. We believe that learning about technology would be most successful when technology is not the topic, but simply a tool used during instruction.

Fifteen minute stories about training.  

PubMed

This panel presentation at the Journal's conference in St Petersburg responded to the conference theme of 'Ancestors in Personal, Professional and Social History' by relating it to the experience of training and being trained on the IAAP 'router' programme in Russia. The two organizers of the programme (JW and CC) have worked in Russia for over 12 years, bringing analysts from Britain to Moscow and St Petersburg on a 'shuttle' basis as supervisors and personal analysts. A few months after handing over the router programme in December 2010 to the Russian colleagues they had trained, they invited four analysts, three Russian and one Belarusian, to tell a short personal story about their training, linking it to the theme of 'the Ancestors'. The resulting four stories are very different but complement each other, using imagery to illustrate issues concerning both value and ambivalence. JW and CC jointly wrote their story about the programme in response to the four stories, reflecting on some of their themes and from them, giving consideration to the flexibility and limits of such a model of cross-cultural training. Themes in the stories included the possibility of mutual adaptation to another culture without losing tradition and identity; moving on from doctrinaire Soviet attitudes in education to embrace 'not knowing'; both organizers and routers learning from mistakes and from joint experience without guilt or shame; the need to protect reflective space amidst the constraints of time and geography. All Russian and UK contributors could finally acknowledge their shared luck to find themselves in the right place at the right time to respond to the collective revival of psychoanalytic practice in Russia.

Molecular characterization of toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2), analysis of its inductive expression and associated down-stream signaling molecules following ligands exposure and bacterial infection in the Indian major carp, rohu (Labeo rohita).  

PubMed

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are one of the key components of innate immunity. Among various TLR types, TLR2 is involved in recognizing specific microbial structures such as peptidoglycan (PGN), lipoteichoic acid (LTA), zymosan etc., and after binding them it triggers myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88 (MyD88)-dependent signaling pathway to induce various cytokines. In this report, TLR2 gene was cloned and characterized in rohu (Labeo rohita), which is highly commercially important fish species in the farming-industry of Indian subcontinent. Full-length rohu TLR2 (rTLR2) cDNA comprised of 2691 bp with a single open reading frame (ORF) of 2379 bp encoding a polypeptide of 792 amino acids (aa) with an estimated molecular mass of 90.74 kDa. Structurally, it comprised of one leucine-rich repeat region (LRR) each at N-terminal (LRR-NT; 44-55 aa) and C-terminal (LRR-CT; 574-590 aa), 21 LRRs in between C and N-terminal, one trans-membrane (TM) domain (595-612 aa), and one TIR domain (645-790 aa). Phylogenetically, rohu TLR2 was closely related to common carp and exhibited significant similarity (93.1%) and identity (88.1%) in their amino acids. During embryogenesis, rTLR2 expression was detected as early as ?7 h post fertilization indicating its importance in embryonic innate immune defense system in fish. Basal expression analysis of rTLR2 showed its constitutive expression in all the tissues examined, highest was in the spleen and the lowest was in the eye. Inductive expression of TLR2 was observed following zymosan, PGN and LTA exposure and Streptococcus uberis and Edwardsiella tarda infections. Expression of immunoregulatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-8, in various organs was significantly enhanced by ligands exposure and bacterial infections, and was correlated with inductive expression of TLR2. In vitro studies showed that PGN treatment induced TLR2, MyD88 and TRAF6 (TNF receptor associated factor 6) expression, NF-?B (nuclear factor kappa B) activation and IL-8 expression. Blocking NF-?B resulted in down-regulation of PGN mediated IL-8 expression indicating the involvement of NF-?B in IL-8 induction. Together, these findings highlighted the important role of TLR2 in immune surveillance of various organs, and in augmenting innate immunity in fish in response to pathogenic invasion. This study will be helpful in developing preventive measures against infectious diseases in fish. PMID:22173272

Regaining our humanity through story.  

PubMed

In this issue of Innovations in Integrative Healthcare Education, we are departing from our usual format of spotlighting specific projects or programs in lieu of presenting a more extended piece by MacKenzie on relationship-centered care and narrative medicine. The importance of these topics cannot be overestimated in their role of humanizing the healthcare encounter, improving self-awareness of the practitioner, and creating a space in which the patient feels deeply listened to. A commentary by Dr Michelle Sierpina is also included in this special section to put into context the power of narrative in medicine and in patients' lives. Her recent PhD focused on the power of life stories told by seniors; that research and training enables her to provide a broad and scholarly review of the power of story in relation to MacKenzie's article. In the medical school at University of Texas Medical Branch, we send out first-year medical students in the first couple of months of the first semester to patients' homes to just get their story, not a medical history, as part of a required course on the practice of medicine. Many students find this immensely anxiety provoking, due to the lack of structure and familiar context. However, ultimately they find an opportunity to encounter a real person in a nonclinical setting. A scoring rubric based on the construction and quality of a short story allows us to grade the students objectively. However, a most interesting finding, which we expect to present at the Ottawa Conference in Australia next spring, is the process of personal transformation that such story writing has for students. This is also reported by MacKenzie in her article and in Sierpina's accompanying commentary. The importance of capturing and understanding the patient's story is also a major focus in nurse practitioner programs across the United States, where the art of listening and the importance of patient narratives have long been emphasized. In an integrative assessment of patients, we "make a history" rather than "take a history." This means that we coconstruct with the patient the reality of the medical encounter and the tone and timbre of the healing relationship. By bringing our own culture, beliefs, and values to the exam room and then allowing the patient to share theirs with us, we create a new kind of relationship-centered, patient-centered care model. This allows the strength of the linear standard medical history, chief complaint, history of present illness, past history, social/family history, review of systems, etc, to be informed and enriched by the nonlinear, perhaps circular, patient story. This story making further allows deeper exploration of the patient's life goals as well as their medical goals.(1) It creates increased personalization of the provider-patient relationship and moves from the "I-them" to Buber's "I-thou." Enjoy the article and the accompanying commentary and consider how to implement this kind of care and mindfulness into the education of health professional students and your practice. PMID:18005918

Causal Attribution and Perceived Realism of Stories  

Microsoft Academic Search

Just as people generate causal explanations for social events around them, story readers usually generate inferences about causality of events when reading a story. The attribution literature suggests that, when judging events that happen to others, people spontaneously generate dispositional explanations for negative events and situational explanations for positive events and the reverse when judging events that happen to themselves.

Molecular characterization and expression analysis of three hypoxia-inducible factor alpha subunits, HIF-1?, -2? and -3? in hypoxia-tolerant Indian catfish, Clarias batrachus [Linnaeus, 1758].  

PubMed

The present study aimed at characterization of three HIF-? subunits, HIF-1? -2? and -3? from hypoxia-tolerant Clarias batrachus, as well as to elucidate their expression pattern under short and long-term hypoxic conditions and identification of biomarker candidate. The complete cDNAs of HIF-1?, -2? and -3? were 2,833, 4,270 and 3,256 bp in length, encoding 774, 818 and 628 amino acid residues, respectively. In C. batrachus, HIF-? subunits were structurally similar in DNA binding, dimerization, degradation and transcriptional activation domains, but differed in their oxygen-dependent degradation domains. Presence of c-Jun N-terminal kinase binding domain in HIF-? subunits was reported here for the first time in fish. In adult C. batrachus, three HIF-? mRNAs were detected in different tissues under normoxic conditions, however HIF-1? was highly expressed in all the tissues studied, in comparison to HIF-2? and -3?. Short-term hypoxia exposure caused significant increase in three HIF-? transcripts in brain, liver and head kidney, while after long-term hypoxia exposure, significant up-regulation of HIF-1? in spleen and -2? in muscle was observed and HIF-3? significantly down-regulated in head kidney. These observations suggest that the differential expression of HIF-? subunits in C. batrachus was hypoxic time period dependent and may play specialized roles in adaptive response to hypoxia. HIF-2?, with its highly elevated expression in muscle tissues, can be a robust biomarker candidate for exposure to hypoxic environment. PMID:24065526

Computer role playing games engage players through interleaved story and open-ended game play. We present an approach to procedurally generating, rendering, and making playable novel games based on a priori unknown story structures. These stories may be authored by humans or by computational story generation systems. Our approach couples player, designer, and algorithm to generate a novel game using preferences

Indian aerosols: present status.  

PubMed

This article presents the status of aerosols in India based on the research activities undertaken during last few decades in this region. Programs, like International Geophysical Year (IGY), Monsoon Experiment (MONEX), Indian Middle Atmospheric Program (IMAP) and recently conducted Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX), have thrown new lights on the role of aerosols in global change. INDOEX has proved that the effects of aerosols are no longer confined to the local levels but extend at regional as well as global scales due to occurrence of long range transportation of aerosols from source regions along with wind trajectories. The loading of aerosols in the atmosphere is on rising due to energy intensive activities for developmental processes and other anthropogenic activities. One of the significant observation of INDOEX is the presence of high concentrations of carbonaceous aerosols in the near persistent winter time haze layer over tropical Indian Ocean which have probably been emitted from the burning of fossil-fuels and biofuels in the source region. These have significant bearing on the radiative forcing in the region and, therefore, have potential to alter monsoon and hydrological cycles. In general, the SPM concentrations have been found to be on higher sides in ambient atmosphere in many Indian cities but the NOx concentrations have been found to be on lower side. Even in the haze layer over Indian Ocean and surrounding areas, the NOx concentrations have been reported to be low which is not conducive of O3 formation in the haze/smog layer. The acid rain problem does not seem to exist at the moment in India because of the presence of neutralizing soil dust in the atmosphere. But the high particulate concentrations in most of the cities' atmosphere in India are of concern as it can cause deteriorated health conditions. PMID:12492171

An epigenomic mechanism in retinoblastoma: the end of the story?  

PubMed Central

The role that retinoblastoma has played in our understanding of cancer biology could hardly have been imagined 40 years ago when this disease was a rare curiosity, of interest primarily because of its variable laterality, occasional dominant inheritance, frequent lethality and embyronal origin. The discovery of its cause (biallelic loss of RB1) did not offer insight to improved management. However, the recent discovery of aberrant expression of the gene encoding spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) subsequent to widespread methylation abnormalities in retinoblastoma suggests a potential new therapy for the disease. There is more to the story, however.

Molecular characterization and expression analysis of PPP1R3C in hypoxia-tolerant Indian catfish, Clarias batrachus (Linnaeus, 1758) under hypoxia.  

PubMed

Hypoxia is an important environmental stressor that leads to rapid adaptive changes in metabolic organization. However, the molecular mechanisms of hypoxia tolerance in fish remain largely unknown. The present work was focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms and signaling pathways that may lead to tolerance of Clarias batrachus to hypoxic stress. Protein phosphatase 1 regulatory subunit 3C (PPP1R3C) is a new hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) targeted gene and is regulated by HIF-1 under hypoxic conditions. Overexpression of PPP1R3C increases glycogen accumulation through activation of several enzymes and processes. In this study, for the first time, full length cDNA of PPP1R3C from C. batrachus was characterized and its expression pattern in the brain, liver, muscle and spleen under short (progressive hypoxia; PH, 1h, 6h and 12h) and long-term (natural) hypoxic conditions was investigated. The complete cDNA of PPP1R3C was of 1499bp, encoding 285 amino acid residues. The identified protein had a protein phosphatase 1 binding motif and a carbohydrate binding domain, thought to be involved in the regulation of glycogen metabolism. Short-term hypoxia exposure caused significant increase in PPP1R3C transcripts in the liver (6h; 6.96 fold and 12h; 3.91 fold) and muscle (progressive hypoxia; 3.46 fold), while, after long-term hypoxia exposure, significant up-regulation in the liver (7.77 fold) and spleen (6.59 fold) tissues was observed. No significant differences were observed in the brain for any time periods. Thus PPP1R3C may play an important role in the tolerance of C. batrachus to hypoxia. PMID:23948083

Enhancing children's health through digital story.  

PubMed

Stories in all of their many forms, including books, plays, skits, movies, poems, and songs, appeal to individuals of all ages but especially the young. Children are easily engaged in stories, and today's generation of children, the millennium generation, demands interactive, multimedia-rich environments. Story as a teaching and learning technique is pervasive in the classroom but is infrequently used to promote health. Because of advancing technology, it is possible to create interactive digital storytelling programs that teach children health topics. Using digital storytelling in an interactive environment to promote health has not been tested, but there is empirical support for using story in health education and interactive technology to promote health. This article briefly reviews the literature and discusses how technology and storytelling can be joined to promote positive health outcomes. PMID:18438149

Popularizing Space Education in Indian Context  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Indians have many mythological stories about many constellations and stars. Hindu months are based on MOON and 27 stars on Zodiac. They are very important for many Indians in ritual, religious functions. By prompting them to identify their birth star, really makes them elevated. Similarly conveying them the importance of star gazing with respect to their day today life makes them to take interest and active participation in Space Activities. Space activities should be driven by public; their requirements; their dreams and imaginations. Their active participation definitely gives valuable inputs to space scientists. Hence, there is a need of involving common man or public mass by appropriate motivation by organising sky gazing sessions, exhibitions, workshops, etc. In this connection, even if the some organisation are able to attract a small percent of qualified engineers/scientists,, enthusiastic students, it would result in the creation of a sizable pool of talent in space sciences,which may well determine the future mankind on this planet. Some simple motivation acts have made the people to take interest in space. we have been using certain methodologies to popularize space science - 1] Conducting theory sessions on basics of star gazing and conveying importance of sky gazing with respect to day-today life. 2] Organising seminars, workshops, lectures and other academic/popular science activities with special reference to space science 3] Projects - a] Cubsat Missions b] Automatic Weather Station Facility c] Model making d] Creating and simulating space models and rover making competitions. The 50 year's of Exploration has left tremendous impact on many society's working towards space education and exploration.

Indian fusion test reactor  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The fusion reactor as a volumetric neutron source can serve many applications needed for realizing fusion power reactor. For the Indian energy scenario, such a device can also produce fissile fuel for accelerating the nuclear power production. The Indian Fusion Test Reactor (FTR) is a low fusion gain (Q = 3-5) device to be used as component test facility for qualifying future reactor materials as well as for demonstrating the production of fissile fuel. FTR will be a medium sized tokamak device with a neutron wall load of 0.2 MW/m2. The presently available structural materials can be used for this device and such a device can be realized in ten years time from now. This device should produce about 25-50 kg of fissile fuel in one full-power-year and also produce the tritium needed for its operation. This device will greatly help the nuclear fission power program by producing fissile fuel.

Alcohol and Indian porphyrics.  

PubMed Central

The role of alcohol as the precipitating factor in the induction of acute attacks of acute intermittent porphyria was studied in an Indian population. Thirty-four teetotal patients with acute intermittent porphyria, in remission, were given 60 ml of 30% ethanol. Except for two patients, all had negative Watson-Schwartz tests prior to the alcohol. Within 24 hours, the Watson-Schwartz test became positive in 16 of these 32 patients (50%). In 8 out of the 34 patients (23.5%) a clinical attack was precipitated, including both patients who had a positive Watson-Schwartz test prior to the alcohol. It was concluded that alcohol does precipitate an acute attack in a significant percentage of patients of Indian origin with acute intermittent porphyria. Patients already excreting porphobilinogen are at a greater risk of developing an acute attack on alcohol ingestion. This study is the first from India and probably first of its kind to be reported from any country.

Holistic nurses' stories of personal healing.  

PubMed

The purpose of this study was to uncover the nature, experiences, and meaning of personal healing for holistic nurses through their narrative accounts. The study employed a qualitative descriptive design with methods of narrative and story inquiry. Participants were nurse attendees at an American Holistic Nurses' Association conference who volunteered for the study. They were invited to share a story about healing self or another. Twenty-five stories were collected; seven were about personal healing, and these are the focus of this analysis. Data were analyzed using a hybrid approach from narrative and story inquiry methods. Eleven themes were clustered under three story segments. The themes within the Call to the Healing Encounter are the following: recognition of the need to resolve a personal or health crisis, knowledge of or engagement in self-care practices, and reliance on intuitive knowing. Themes under the Experience of Healing are the following: connections; profound sensations, perceptions, and events; awareness of the reciprocal nature of healing; inner resolution: forgiveness, awakening, and acceptance; use of multiple holistic approaches; and witnessing manifestations of healing. The themes for Insights are the following: gratitude and appreciation and ongoing journey. A metastory synthesizing the themes is presented, and findings are related to existing literature on healing. PMID:23463813
