It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)GTP-Binding Protein alpha Subunits, Gi-Go: A family of heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein alpha subunits that were originally identified by their ability to inhibit ADENYLYL CYCLASES. Members of this family can couple to beta and gamma G-protein subunits that activate POTASSIUM CHANNELS. The Gi-Go part of the name is also spelled Gi/Go.Fenoterol: An adrenergic beta-2 agonist that is used as a bronchodilator and tocolytic.Rats, Inbred F344F Factor: A plasmid whose presence in the cell, either extrachromosomal or integrated into the BACTERIAL CHROMOSOME, determines the "sex" of the bacterium, host chromosome mobilization, transfer via conjugation (CONJUGATION, GENETIC) of genetic material, and the formation of SEX PILI.Y Chromosome: The male sex chromosome, being the differential sex chromosome carried by half the male gametes and none of the female gametes in humans and in some other male-heterogametic species in which the homologue of the X chromosome has been retained.Galactolipids: A group of GLYCOLIPIDS in which the sugar group is GALACTOSE. They are distinguished from GLYCOSPHINGOLIPIDS in lacking nitrogen. They constitute the majority of MEMBRANE LIPIDS in PLANTS.Compulsive Behavior: The behavior of performing an act persistently and repetitively without it leading to reward or pleasure. The act is usually a small, circumscribed behavior, almost ritualistic, yet not pathologically disturbing. Examples of compulsive behavior include twirling of hair, checking something constantly, not wanting pennies in change, straightening tilted pictures, etc.Binge-Eating Disorder: A disorder associated with three or more of the following: eating until feeling uncomfortably full; eating large amounts of food when not physically hungry; eating much more rapidly than normal; eating alone due to embarrassment; feeling of disgust, DEPRESSION, or guilt after overeating. Criteria includes occurrence on average, at least 2 days a week for 6 months. The binge eating is not associated with the regular use of inappropriate compensatory behavior (i.e. purging, excessive exercise, etc.) and does not co-occur exclusively with BULIMIA NERVOSA or ANOREXIA NERVOSA. (From DSM-IV, 1994)Social Control, Informal: Those forms of control which are exerted in less concrete and tangible ways, as through folkways, mores, conventions, and public sentiment.Thinking: Mental activity, not predominantly perceptual, by which one apprehends some aspect of an object or situation based on past learning and experience.Hate: An enduring attitude or sentiment toward persons or objects manifested by anger, aversion and desire for the misfortune of others.Love: Affection; in psychiatry commonly refers to pleasure, particularly as it applies to gratifying experiences between individuals.Child Behavior Disorders: Disturbances considered to be pathological based on age and stage appropriateness, e.g., conduct disturbances and anaclitic depression. This concept does not include psychoneuroses, psychoses, or personality disorders with fixed patterns.Fuzzy Logic: Approximate, quantitative reasoning that is concerned with the linguistic ambiguity which exists in natural or synthetic language.

Formerly restricted to industry, but nowadays applied to artificial organs controlled by bionic (bioelectronic) devices, like automated insulin pumps and other prostheses.Algorithms: A procedure consisting of a sequence of algebraic formulas and/or logical steps to calculate or determine a given task.Sterculiaceae: A plant family of the order Malvales, subclass Dilleniidae, class Magnoliopsida. The leaves of Sterculiaceae are alternate and simple or palmately compound. Flowers have three to five sepals and five or no petals.Neural Networks (Computer): A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.Congresses as Topic: Conferences, conventions or formal meetings usually attended by delegates representing a special field of interest.Dissertations, Academic as Topic: Dissertations embodying results of original research and especially substantiating a specific view, e.g., substantial papers written by candidates for an academic degree under the individual direction of a professor or papers written by undergraduates desirous of achieving honors or distinction.Academic DissertationsSerial Learning: Learning to make a series of responses in exact order.Markov Chains: A stochastic process such that the conditional probability distribution for a state at any future instant, given the present state, is unaffected by any additional knowledge of the past history of the system.Libraries, Digital: Libraries in which a major proportion of the resources are available in machine-readable format, rather than on paper or MICROFORM.

Genetically determined obesity in Prader-Willi syndrome: the ethics and legality of treatment. (1/130)

A central characteristic of people with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is an apparent insatiable appetite leading to severe overeating and the potential for marked obesity and associated serious health problems and premature death. This behaviour may be due to the effects of the genetic defect resulting from the chromosome 15 abnormalities associated with the syndrome. We examine the ethical and legal dilemmas that can arise in the care of people with PWS. A tension exists between a genetic deterministic perspective and that of individual choice. We conclude that the determination of the capacity of a person with PWS to make decisions about his/her eating behaviour and to control that behaviour is of particular importance in resolving this dilemma. If the person is found to lack capacity, the common law principles of acting in a person's "best interests" using the "least restrictive alternative" may be helpful. Allowing serious weight gain in the absence of careful consideration of these issues is an abdication of responsibility.  (+info)

On becoming non-judgmental: some difficulties for an ethics of counselling. (2/130)

The growth in the availability of counselling services has been accompanied by growing concern about the conduct of counsellors, which in turn has led to the expressed need for an ethics of counselling. This paper will argue that there is an inherent tension between this need and the central tenets of one variety of counselling, client-centred counselling. The tension is identifiable on the basis of an inquiry into the nature of moral judgment which results in the recognition of the implicit value base in client-centred counselling. It is only when this value base is made explicit that any adequate ethics of counselling becomes a viable possibility.  (+info)

Are antipsychotic drugs the right treatment for challenging behaviour in learning disability?: The place of a randomised trial. (3/130)

People with learning disability sometimes display challenging behaviour. This can be managed by use of antipsychotic medication or behavioural therapy or both. There is no solid evidence, however, that these therapies are safe and effective. A randomised controlled trial of antipsychotic medication has been proposed to deliver such evidence. However, this presents difficult issues in the ethics of research with learning disabled people. In particular, is a trial the most efficient and fairest way to evaluate practice in this area? This paper reviews the clinical situation, gives the rationale for the trial, and analyses the ethical arguments for and against such a trial.  (+info)

Health promotion and the First Amendment: government control of the informational environment. (4/130)

Government efforts to protect public health often include controlling health information. The government may proscribe messages conveyed by commercial entities (e.g., false or misleading), recommend messages from commercial entities (e.g., warnings and safety instructions), and convey health messages (e.g., health communication campaigns). Through well-developed, albeit evolving, case law, government control of private speech has been constrained to avoid impinging on such values as free expression, truthfulness, and autonomous decision making. No simple legal framework has been developed for the government's own health messages to mediate between the legitimate goals of health protection and these other values. Nevertheless, government recommendations on matters of health raise difficult social and ethical questions and involve important societal trade-offs. Accordingly, this article proposes legal and ethical principles relating to government control of the health information environment.  (+info)

A novel skilled-reaching impairment in paw supination on the "good" side of the hemi-Parkinson rat improved with rehabilitation. (5/130)

Parkinson's disease is characterized by tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and postural abnormalities ascribed to the loss of nigrostriatal dopamine (DA). Symptoms similar to the human condition can be produced in the rat by DA-depleting 6-hydroxydopamine injections made into the nigrostriatal system. After a unilateral lesion, the rat symptoms include sensory and motor impairments and turning biases reflecting motor abnormalities to the contralateral-to-depletion side of the body. In addition, a number of studies on skilled reaching report impairments in the use of the ipsilateral limb. It is suggested that the ipsilateral deficit is secondary to the contralateral motor impairments however. Here we re-examine how rats with unilateral DA depletion use their ipsilateral limb for skilled reaching for food. We provide the first description of an impairment on the ipsilateral-to-depletion side of the body of the rat and the first demonstration of amelioration of the defect using behavioral therapy. Video analysis of rats reaching for single pellets of food with the ipsilateral limb revealed that, although limb advancement and food grasping were normal, paw supination and food release to the mouth were impaired. Consequently, the animals were unable to transport a grasped food pellet to the mouth. Behavioral therapy, consisting of training in a simpler reaching task, strikingly lessened the impairment and improved reaching movements to the point that the rats could transport the food to the mouth. The results are discussed in relation to possible causes of the ipsilateral impairment, its treatment, and to relevant research on human Parkinson patients, indicating that they display bilateral improvements after unilateral treatments.  (+info)

Evaluation of an individualised asthma programme directed at behavioural change. (6/130)

An individualised asthma programme directed at behavioural change was evaluated in asthmatic subjects who reported complaints and impairment, despite adequate medical treatment. Mild-to-moderate asthma patients (n=23) were randomly assigned to a programme or waiting list condition. Outcome measures were: McMaster Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire, Asthma Symptom Checklist, Negative Emotionality Scale, Knowledge, Attitude and Self-Efficacy Asthma Questionnaire, Adherence Scale, and peak flow measurements. Both groups were evaluated at three consecutive moments, each separated by 3 months; the programme was delivered between the first two evaluations. At onset the patient received a workbook containing information, exercises and homework assignments. Psycho-education, behavioural and cognitive techniques were introduced during six 1-h individual sessions. Compared with controls the programme group reported less symptoms (obstruction, fatigue), better quality of life (activity, symptoms, emotions), decreased negative affectivity, and increased adherence, immediately after finishing the programme and at 3 months follow-up. All three cognitive variables (knowledge, attitude towards asthma, self-efficacy) and day and night peak flow ratings improved in the programme group but not in the waiting list group. Participation in an individualised programme resulted in improvement of asthma morbidity, and asthma-related behaviour and cognitions, in subjects reporting symptoms and impairment despite adequate medical therapy.  (+info)

Persistence of effects of a brief intervention on parental restrictions of teen driving privileges. (7/130)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which effects of exposure to a brief intervention designed to increase parental restrictions on teen driving privileges persisted over time. DESIGN: A total of 658 parents and their 16 year old adolescents were recruited from a local motor vehicle administration (MVA) site as adolescents successfully tested for provisional licenses. At the MVA, parents completed written surveys about expected teen driving during the first month of provisional licensure. Afterwards, on weeks assigned as intervention, parents watched a video and were given the video and a driving agreement to take home. Both parents and teens completed follow up telephone interviews about communication, amounts, and limits on teen driving at one month (579 dyads), four months (529 dyads), and nine months (528 dyads). RESULTS: The results indicated that both intervention parents and teens were much more likely to report using a driving agreement at each follow up during the nine month period. Significant treatment group differences persisted for communication about driving, but effects related to limits on teen driving that were evident at one month declined over time. Reports for passenger, road, and overall limits remained significant at four months; fewer were present at nine months. There were no differences in amounts of teen driving at four or nine months. CONCLUSIONS: It is possible to reach parents through brief interventions at the MVA and successfully promote increases in initial parental restrictions on teen driving with modest persistence for at least four months.  (+info)

Acceptability and feasibility of a computer-tailored physical activity intervention using stages of change: project FAITH. (8/130)

This study investigated the feasibility and acceptability of a new computer-tailored intervention promoting physical activity in a general population, and explored if there are differences in the reported feasibility and acceptability between stages of change, gender, age groups, education levels and familiarity with computer use. The computer-tailored intervention program consists of questionnaires concerning demographics, physical activity and psychosocial determinants, leading to a 'physical activity advice' and an 'action plan'. This feedback was constructed taking the stages of change into account, at content level as well as in the way participants were approached. One hundred and ninety-two participants, between 25 and 55 years of age, ran through the tailored materials, and completed an acceptability and feasibility questionnaire afterwards. This questionnaire contained feasibility and acceptability questions about all the intervention aspects: intervention questions, physical activity advice, action plan and computer use. High acceptability and feasibility scores were found for all intervention parts. Only a few significant differences in acceptability and feasibility scores between stages of change, gender, age groups, education levels and familiarity with computer use were found. These results suggest that this computer-tailored intervention is an acceptable and feasible tool for promoting physical activity for respondents having different stages of change, ages, gender, education levels and computer use.  (+info)

Doctor-office collaborative care is more cost-effective than enhanced usual care for treating children with behavioral problems in primary care settings.
Digital platform providers, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are competing fiercely to find the next big method to grab more minutes of attention. One of the most important tools in their arsenal will be voice control and monitoring. Far more than just replacing keyed-in commands, a system of voice control and monitoring - what Forrester calls "vox" - will provide entirely new avenues through which to deliver value to consumers. In this report, we explain why voice matters so much and paint the picture in vivid colors with a hypothetical example that hasnt yet happened but likely will. Marketers and app developers will need to prepare for the arrival of this powerful new interface. ...
Mild Alzheimers dementia (AD) cases are with 15 millions worldwide the largest fraction of all AD cases. Most patients are cared for by their family at home. Neuropsychiatric symptoms are very common in AD, even as early as in mild AD: About 90% of all mild AD cases experience neuropsychiatric symptoms, most frequently depression, anxiety, and irritability. These symptoms are associated with greater morbidity, reduced quality of life for the patient, increased burden and depression for the caregiver, higher costs of care, and nursing home placement. Thus, interventions aimed at treating these symptoms could have a tremendous effect on pa-tients, caregivers, and society.. This study is a randomized, controlled trial (RCT) evaluating a comprehensive CBT-based, multi-component treatment programme consisting of eight modules (diagnosis and goal-setting; psycho-education; engagement in pleasant activities; cognitive restructuring; life review; training caregiver in behavior management techniques; ...

Treatment focuses on the problem and not curing the issue, as there is no cure. The dogs owner will be trained on behavior management techniques to assist the dog with its anger. Desensitization and relaxation techniques are used to help the dog overcome its fear. Devices such as muzzles can be effective when the dog is away from home. All treatment is focused on preventing injury to humans, other animals, and to the dog.. Dont allow a dog to achieve dominant status over any person. Also, in choosing a dog, its a good idea to take a realistic look at your own personality. Do not get an aggressive dog if you are meek and mild mannered, for example.. Its a good idea to arrange for them to play with other non-aggressive dogs so the friendliness will rub off on them. If you have an older dog that is aggressive, praise them for good behavior and discipline mildly for unacceptable behavior. They should sit on command, sit before going out the door, etc. This reinforces that you are the dominant ...

Patients with type 2 diabetes who incorporate stress management techniques into their routine care can significantly reduce their average blood glucose levels.Type 2 Diabetes and Stress Management Patients with type 2 diabetes who incorporate stress management techniques into their routine care can significantly reduce their average blood glucose levels, according to a new study by researchers at Duke University Medical Center.. This is the first large study to show that a simple, cost-effective treatment can have a meaningful therapeutic effect on the control of blood sugar, said the researchers. Such stress management techniques include instructions on how to identify everyday life stressors and how to respond to them with such techniques as progressive muscle relaxation and breathing exercises.. Stress can increase glucose levels in people with diabetes, making them more susceptible to long-term physical complications such as eye, kidney or nerve disorders.. Results of the study are published ...

Children are often very nervous or scared when experiencing something new. Our goal as trained pediatric dentists is to make your childs visit to the dentist as comfortable as possible. We start with "baby steps" to help your child learn how to overcome any fears of going to the dentist. Most children begin to understand after their first visit, that brushing and counting their teeth was easy and that they have overcome their fears of the dentist. Some children need a little more help to overcome their fear of the dentist.. We use many scientifically proven techniques to help children overcome their fears. These include, tell-show-do, positive reinforcement, and distraction techniques. Most children respond well to these techniques. Some children are unable to cooperate after using these techniques and may need pharmacological behavior management such as nitrous oxide, sedation, and general anesthesia. The options that will be appropriate for your child will be explained by your pediatric ...

One of the utmost important activities to manage stress and anxiety is exercise. Actually, exercise has many benefits for a healthy and happy lifestyle.. A regular exercise routine reduces your chances of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Eliminating the risk of major health issues is reason enough to exercise, however, exercise also makes you feel terrific.. Exercising creates a chemical change in your body by releasing endorphins which magically reduces your stress levels. These chemical changes can help fight off depression, fatigue, stress and anxiety, and even addictions.. A long run can create the same stress reducing effect as having a drink after a long day. However, the health benefits of running far outweigh the effects of drinking.. Any amount of exercise you can work into your daily routine is of benefit. Gradually increasing your fitness should be a lifetime goal.. Exercise can also have a visual consequence resulting in a positive self-image. The better you feel about ...
The trends above make IT failure a greater threat to the business. At the same time, some traditional risk management tools have become less applicable.. IT operations staff traditionally managed risks to the production infrastructure by relying solely on restrictive change practices. Changes to the infrastructure were either denied or they were managed with a strict process and a long timeline. This ensured stability "by default," but reduced organizational flexibility. Today, business management is more likely to tell IT what to implement, rather than ask, so IT cannot adopt a strategy of managing risk by denying change requests.. In addition to business-driven changes, organizations must be able to quickly respond to security threats such as virus or denial of service attacks. In such cases, managing risk through timely action is of paramount importance. An IT group that used to reduce risk through six-week change cycles might now find itself forced to make changes in six days, six hours, or ...
There are many opportunities for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from Amazon agriculture, including conservation agriculture and associated practices, rehabilitation of pastures, and new systems of integrated production. We discuss each of these opportunities and their impacts on greenhouse gas emissions in this section.. Brazilian farmers have already demonstrated how rapidly, and widely, improved management techniques can be adopted. Conservation agriculture (CA) management techniques maintain vegetation cover, dead or alive, on soil, avoid ploughing or tilling the soil and encourage crop rotation, including cover crops. CA began in the USA in the 1930s and took off in earnest in the 1960s, yet today the practice is in use in only 41 per cent of croplands [19]. Brazil has demonstrated a rapid adoption of CA as it spread from 0 to 53 per cent of all cropland area from 1980 to 2006 [20]. CA increases soil carbon and nitrogen content, thereby also increasing the soils water-holding ...

Description: Much has been done to promote the use of management techniques designed to develop human resources within the business enterprise. Unfortunately, most of these procedures are applied after the individual has become an employee of the firm. Similar management techniques are needed for the proper recruitment and placement of each new employee. A major source of employee dissatisfaction and turnover lies in the incapacity of some jobs to satisfy the aspirations and job values of certain types of employees. Therefore, one key to employment stability for the college graduate is the relative compatibility between his job values and the capacity of the job to provide fulfillment for those aspirations. Much needs to be done in the areas of predicting the job values of a college senior and matching the individual graduate with that job which is most apt to provide a productive and meaningful career. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between grade point averages, ...

b) To have stop losses that complement your method and are far enough away to not get hit by random moves, yet are not too far away that they dilute profit potential.. Let us run through an example. If you have 15 trades per week, and on average you win 60% of them and get stopped out on the remaining 40%, considering a very conservative Risk:Reward ratio of 1:1 (where entry-exit = entry-stop distance), you end out with nine winners (+9R) and six losers (-6R). Your expected profit per week is 3R (which is handsome, by all means). We are keeping the numbers realistic, in this example, because it is not realistic to expect an 80-90% win rate.. Now, we have already said that having a lot of trades does stress our risk limits. Remaining realistic, on any given week you shouldnt expose your account to more than a 1.5% drawdown, because active trading always tends to stress these risk limits from the start, and drawdown figures are often exceeded. By aiming for a 1.5% MaxDD per week, you are setting ...
The PPTRC Child Behavior Management (CBM) Clinic helps the families of children who frequently have problems staying focused and paying attention, controlling behavior, and getting along with others.

We track progress carefully as we work with families, so that we can know how well we are doing in reaching goals.. ...
Gotcha Ninjas. Gotcha Ninjas is an Irish company and was founded by a teacher. It aims to create a digitized, gamified version of a traditional star chart, which is found on many walls in the Irish classroom that students and teachers can interact with throughout the day. Similarly to the above Behaviour Management Systems, small ninja figures on the screen reward childrens avatars with games, stars and belts for positive behaviour. You can also organise seating plans and take attendance. You can also divide your class into groups so you can reward groups as well as individuals. However, some interesting features that Gotcha Ninjas have are the ability to digitalise Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and Individual Behaviour Plans (IBPs), which is quite useful and targeted at the Irish market. Where Gotcha Ninjas differs greatly from the above two services, in that it is a positive reinforcement approach only; there are no points taken away for bad behaviour and no negative language is employed ...
The studys findings have highlighted that there are unlikely to be quick fixes or tipping points that can be isolated to change behaviours, rather, several factors could be targeted to improve diet and/or physical activity behaviours across the inter-related system of clusters. This reinforces the need for a systems approach in planning multi-faceted interventions in order to account for the (sometimes unexpected) interaction between the factors influencing behaviour. Conventional approaches focusing on individual level behaviour change are insufficient [26].. The contextualisation for interventions is crucial too, which is in contrast with the high priority given to the individual level psychosocial factors in this study. This finding is largely a reflection of prevailing perceptions that these are easy to change. However, changing individual level factors, whilst the context remains the same, is insufficient to drive behaviour change, in view of the socially and culturally embedded nature of ...

This exercise corresponds to Kolbs 4-stage cyclical theory of experiential learning, a model of learning that combines experience, perception, cognition, and behavior. According to Kolb, "learning is the process whereby knowledge is created through the transformation of experience."1,2. During the ECG competition, a learner applies knowledge to specific cases in a safe environment where mistakes can be made without severe consequences. This reflects the "concrete experience" stage of learning. After the competition, learners have an opportunity to review their answers. This represents the observation and reflection stages of experiential learning. Finally, residents progress to the stages of cognition and behavior: identifying areas to improve their ECG interpretation, and influencing behavior by applying this knowledge to patient care. ...
A Potpourri of Current Research on Flies, Fish, and Other Animals THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY EXCITING TIME to study the behavior of other animals. It seems like every day were learning more and more about the fascinating lives of other animals - how smart and clever they are and how theyre able to solve problems we never imagined they could. Here I consider a wide range of research on animals that shows clearly just how well-developed and amazing are their cognitive skills. A very few people continue to ignore what we really know about other animals, but they are in the vast minority. Here you can read about flies, bees, lizards, fish, a back-scratching dog, how climate change is influencing behavior, and why respected scientists are pondering the spiritual lives of animals.. However, before getting into this wonderful research on animal minds and consciousness, I start this part with an essay that tackles one of the main and enduring criticisms of such research and of my work in particular: ...
Our project concerns the entry of mast cells into the CNS. Mast cells are best known for their role in inflammatory disease. However, they also exist in the CNS and are pluripotent as to the possible secretory products they can release. We have discovered that their numbers in specific brain regions appear to be controlled by developmental age and reproductive status. The goals now are to analyze at a cellular level how they enter the CNS (both physical pathways and potential chemotactic agents) and how they influence the brain vasculature and neuronal transmission. We have also begun looking for a functional role of mast cells in the brain. These could include regulating core body temperature after induction of sepsis and also influencing behavior. The implication of mast cells in arousal and behavior like fear and anxiety would be novel evidence for an immune cells contribution to the neural basis of behavior.. ...
But what if instead of selecting for a simple trait, we (or the species as a whole) selects for a behaviour? The neat thing about selecting for this is that hormones have a strong influence on behaviour. So we are partly selecting for certain hormone levels or actions. These hormones also share logical relationships with other hormones, and act in many different parts of the body, not just the parts of the brain influencing behaviour.. If we put significant selection pressure on a species, we are effectively increasing the mutation rate (ie "mutant" creatures tend to be selected more). Increases in mutation rates would be more likely to affect more logically complex proteins arising later in life involved in the development of adolescent features (due to more references to more parts of the mutating DNA) rather than less logically complex proteins that would be involved in juvenile features.. As a result, we now have a mechanism for how these bizarre traits that we simply dont see in the wild ...

Lastly, empower your team. The concept of empowerment may be an old-school management technique since it has been introduced decades ago but the reason management experts still recommend this is it works. Unfortunately, many companies are not putting this concept into practice leaving many employees and teams of workers underutilized. Utilizing employees does not mean overloading them with work, which to be certain will not help team motivation. Empowerment means allowing the team to make certain decisions regarding the project, which enables them to make use of their experience, skills and knowledge. Empowerment increases team motivation because they can initiate changes and are, therefore, more engaged with the project ...
As with other chronic illnesses, the symptoms of lupus can be extremely frustrating and limiting for patients. Some people experience rashes on their face and hair loss; these symptoms can affect self-esteem and limit patients desire to be social if they are receiving stares or comments. Painful joints and fatigue can prevent many day-to-day activities, which may impact social and emotional functioning. Patients with lupus are often very sensitive to sunlight, which can cause flares. This limits the time they are able to enjoy time outside. The unpredictability of flares can be overwhelming, but there are several self-care strategies to help patients be proactive about their illness. Gentle low-impact exercise can be helpful, as well as getting a gentle massage. Stress management techniques like mindfulness, yoga, and meditation can be helpful in decreasing any flares that occur due to stress. Seeking help from a therapist who specializes in chronic illness can also help to normalize the impact ...

I think we need much more expert information on what has happened and is happening. And, the only way to judge the response of government, and the private sector for that matter, is to become knowledgeable on how other related disasters have been handled. It does seem that the response all the way around has been and continues to be slow…waiting for oil to wash up on shores, rather than working through strategies for preventing it. There are no doubt innovative technologies that we should be testing. This spill should be a breakthrough moment when we identify and develop better ways to stop a leak, not to mention prevent it. We need also to focus on the safety provisions BP failed to employ having been given a pass by a cozy federal agency. This is no time for empty rhetoric, or waiting for the worst. We should be calling for strict adherence to safety provisions before any leases are granted. We should be researching best practice environmental crises management techniques. We need to put the ...
My project is to investigate the ways in which the characters in Kazuo Ishiguros novels An Artist of the Floating World , The Remains of the Day , and Never Let Me Go are affected by their over-identification with their professions. The theme of using a professional identity in order to defer responsibility and avoid having to face unpleasant truths about their lives is strongly evidenced in the characters of each of the novels that I will discuss. Through the discussion of scientific management techniques formulated in the last century I plan to show the way in which the professionalism that Ishiguro portrays is marked by a sacrifice of the personal and the individual, leading to his subjects constantly have to revise their life stories in order to contextualize them according to current circumstances. By the use of feedback loops in the thought processes of individuals that cleave too strongly to professionalism, Ishiguros characters reconfigure personal and public events into a ...
The selection of any lake management technique should be based on clearly stated goals that all stakeholders understand. A comprehensive lake management plan should detail specific goals for the vegetation balance in the lake. The selection of the most appropriate techniques or combination of techniques should include discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of each. A trusted lake manager could be invaluable in helping select in-lake techniques that offer the least risk, based upon specific conditions (such as chemical, physical and biological characteristics) of the lake and the desired results.. Here is a list of common in-lake techniques that have been used (with varying degrees of success) for plant and algae removal:. Herbicides that kill targeted species of nuisance aquatic plant growths have been successfully applied in lakes, particularly those with exotic plant infestations. Due to societal concerns regarding the use of chemical agents in the environment, all cost-effective and ...

From this point forward, TREES will set a maximum herd size of 12-15 horses rather than the average of 18-20 we tried to maintain for the past several years. Not only will a smaller herd lead to a more balanced sanctuary environment, but it will also allow time for more educational efforts, something that suffered greatly in the last few years. Education will, of course, remain focused on equine elder care, but we will also begin to incorporate more "green" horsekeeping philosophy. Our standards will include integrative management techniques in which the sanctuary environment is every bit as important as the horses in it. Practically speaking, there is no way to separate the two facets of the sanctuary - what we do with the horses affects the farm environment and what we do with the farm environment affects the horses. The Sanctuary is a microcosm of the interconnected nature of all things; what affects one thing affects all things ...

Written By Dr. Kris Hiney. Now that we are aware of the potential problems of the skeletal system of the foal, we will address some management techniques that may aid in preventing their occurrence. These include dietary management of the mare and foal, exercise needs, controlling growth rate and even selection of appropriate breeding stock.. Size and growth rate. One of the commonalties amongst all developmental orthopedic diseases (DOD) includes the size and growth rate of the foal. Obviously the larger the foal, the more stress which will be placed on the limbs simply due to weight. Bigger and more rapidly growing foals have been repeatedly shown to be at more risk for DODs. Body size is inherently a genetic issue, while growth rate can be modulated by the owner. If you are breeding for larger foals, more caution should be taken with their diet to ensure a more moderate rate of growth. This includes avoiding sudden changes in rate of growth. One way to limit changes in growth rate is to avoid ...

As previously reported in Risk Management magazine, when considering risk management techniques for zombie encounters, such as fight or flee, it pays to plan ahead: Consider objects around you that could be used as weapons, wear shoes that can accommodate speed if fleeing is necessary and always be aware of your surroundings.. The undead do not need oxygen or blood to function, as detailed in the Zombie Survival Guide. They can thrive on land and even under water, so be sure to account for both scenarios when designing your contingency plans. If you are preparing to defend yourself or your company, its suggested you use a long blade or propulsion weapon and be sure to aim for the head. It is commonly believed that once its brain is pierced, a zombie should perish for good. Visit the CDCs Zombie Preparedness page for more survival techniques and tips on how to best handle an encounter with the undead.. ...

Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: Technical Abstract: Spatiotemporal stability analyses are required to delineate areas of stable yield patterns for the application of precision farming management techniques. Spatial structure and temporal stability patterns were studied using 1995-1997 yield data for a field located near Story City, Iowa. Corn was grown during 1995-1996, and soybean during 1997. Yield was measured on 9 east-west transects, consisting of 25 yield blocks per transect. In order to compare the yield variability among different crops and years, data were detrended by median polishing. The resulting yield residuals were used in the subsequent spatial analysis. The trend surface analysis generated from the median polished data showed apparent large scale deterministic structure. The microsale stochastic structure was studied by variography. The variogram analysis showed strong spatial structure for the yield data. Spatial correlations were found to vary from about 40 m for corn to ...

What dance artists desire is a good-enough tool-bag of behaviour management strategies. Supplied with that, they might better be able to defuse confrontation, overcome resistance or apathy and maintain boundaries. They want to understand how much information about individuals they need to know, and how to gauge the needs of the group in relation to the needs of those individuals. Their goal is to get under the skin of what might motivate challenging behaviours (for example, somebody refusing to take off their shoes and socks). They would like to know how to prevent conflict by embedding pro-active strategies in their teaching, and what kind of expectations to have. They want to be able to deal appropriately with bullying, inappropriate sexual behaviour and challenging project partners such as over-authoritative teachers. Additionally, they wish to know several how-tos, as in how to create a shared behaviour management plan before the project starts; how to manage children who dont listen; how ...

Living in poverty places children at very high risk for problems across a variety of domains, including schooling, behavioral regulation, and health. Aspects of cognitive functioning, such as information processing, may underlie these kinds of problems. How might poverty affect the brain functions underlying these cognitive processes? Here, we address this question by observing and analyzing repeated measures of brain development of young children between five months and four years of age from economically diverse backgrounds (n = 77). In doing so, we have the opportunity to observe changes in brain growth as children begin to experience the effects of poverty. These children underwent MRI scanning, with subjects completing between 1 and 7 scans longitudinally. Two hundred and three MRI scans were divided into different tissue types using a novel image processing algorithm specifically designed to analyze brain data from young infants.

The theory of planned behavior states that individuals act on their intentions, especially when they have behavioral control. The current study examines how seeking recycling-related procedural information-i.e., information about how and where to recycle-is related to behavioral control. Hypothesis testing used hierarchical ordinary least squares regression analysis of longitudinal data from 553 survey respondents. Results supported seven hypotheses. Most notably, procedural information seeking both mediated and moderated the relationship between intention and behavior. Further, the moderation effect was itself mediated by behavioral control. The argument for this mediated moderation is that information seeking enhances behavioral control, and it is primarily behavioral control that moderates the relationship between intention and behavior. These results have implications for the theory of planned behavior and, more generally, for how individuals use information to support their behaviors.
Accurate vocal production relies on several factors including sensory feedback and the ability to predict future challenges to the control processes. Repetitive patterns of perturbations in sensory feedback by themselves elicit implicit expectations in the vocal control system regarding the timing, quality and direction of perturbations. In the present study, the predictability of voice pitch-shifted auditory feedback was experimentally manipulated. A block of trials where all pitch-shift …
There is a growing body of evidence-and countless real-world examples-that demonstrate how so-called "disinfected" medical devices are not as clean as we think.. Given the recent potential outbreaks of everything from MRSA to Ebola, that is a chilling statement. It is hard to believe that in the world or modern disinfectants and sterilization techniques, that 86 percent of "disinfected" devices may still be contaminated. This reality has caused many to embrace shifts towards disposable single use devices in the medical facilities. That approach may be fine for inspection instruments and personal items, however, electronic equipment and medical monitoring devices will never be disposable items.. Many of these devices have NEMA rated coatings and enclosures to mitigate the chances of liquids and particles entering into and contaminating them. This makes them easier to clean, but doesnt eliminate contamination potential on high touch surfaces. So if coatings and enclosures only protect what is ...
Any approach to occupational health must acknowledge that accidents in the workplace result in many injuries. Construction, agriculture, and primary extraction are the main causes of fatalities and serious injuries, but many more minor injuries result from all kinds of work.Health and safety law has developed with an emphasis on accident prevention that is based on designing and managing the working environment by (1) defining appropriate processes and work practices that are safe; (2) developing and maintaining a health and safety culture; and (3) influencing behaviour so that everyone is focused on the best and safest way to do their work....
The size and shape of the particles within a powder are important factors in influencing behaviour, and many well-established techniques exist for measuring these properties. However, over a range of different processes, the relationship between these two parameters and flow properties is less well-understood, and due to the varying demands powders are subjected to by different processes, the effect of the two parameters may not be consistent or easily quantified.

  • Control of male sexual behavior and sexual orientation in Drosophila by the fruitless gene. (
  • The phenotypes of new fru mutants encompass nearly all aspects of male sexual behavior. (
  • Our previous studies led us to propose that a sex determination regulatory gene, fruitless ( fru ), is responsible for building the potential for male sexual behavior into the CNS during development in D. melanogaster . (
  • We have shown that wild-type fru function is required for all, or nearly all, aspects of male sexual behavior, from the initial recognition of a potential mate, through the transfer of bodily fluids and the duration of copulation. (
  • Genetic analysis indicates that it is the P1-derived male-specific FRU proteins (FRU M ) whose functions are needed for male sexual behavior. (
  • That fru acts during development to establish the potential for male sexual behavior is suggested by the patterns of expression of male-specific P1 products. (
  • These findings suggest that male sexual behavior is the result of sensory information entering the CNS via largely sex-nonspecific sensory systems, and being processed by sex-specific ( fru -specified) circuitry in higher order neuropils. (
  • The findings that FRU M proteins are expressed in only a small portion of the CNS and are necessary for all, or nearly all, aspects of male sexual behavior were provocative and pleasing. (
  • Yet there is a formidable gap between the two aspects of fru about which we have substantial information: (1) the properties and expression patterns of its products and (2) fru 's phenotypic effects on male sexual behavior. (
  • Risky sexual behavior is the description of the activity that will increase the probability that a person engaging in sexual activity with another person infected with a sexually transmitted infection will be infected or become pregnant, or make a partner pregnant. (

  • engaging in sex trade work Risky sexual behavior includes unprotected intercourse, multiple sex partners, and illicit drug use. (
  • Trauma from penile-anal sex has been identified as a risky sexual behavior. (
  • Misconceptions of invulnerability and the practice of ignoring long-term consequences of their behavior tend to promote risky sexual behavior. (
  • An association exists between those with a higher incidence of body art (body piercings and tattoos) and risky sexual behavior. (
  • Engaging in risky sexual behavior is non-consensual and is related to age (children) and nationality. (
  • Counseling has been developed and implemented for people with severe mental illness, may improve participants' knowledge, attitudes, beliefs behaviors or practices (including assertiveness skills) and could lead to a reduction in risky sexual behavior. (
  • Sexual behavior 697-697.5. (
  • Non-reproductive sexual behavior is sexual activities animals participate in that do not lead to the reproduction of the species. (
  • Although procreation continues to be the primary explanation for sexual behavior in animals, recent observations on animal behavior has given alternative reasons for the engagement in sexual activities by animals. (

  • With emergency preparedness efforts in progress for potential pandemic influenza, the importance of competence in the area of infection transmission prevention is of utmost importance for critical infrastructure resilience, which is why we conducted a study to determine the existing knowledge and attitudes regarding infection prevention and control among the EMTs and paramedics employed by the EMS organization of a large metropolitan area in the Midwest. (
  • Individuals learn appropriate behavior within an organization as the code of values, roles, attitudes, and norms of behavior of that work environment become apparent (Wood, 1999). (
  • Symbolic behavior perspective proposes that individuals are faced with uncertainty when introduced to an organization. (
  • Stories/myths: As stories are continually repeated, they provide analogies for individuals and serve to guide behavior within the organization. (
  • Because clothing can influence perceptions of both behavior and intent (Galin, 1990, p. 51), the dress code of an organization can impact their overall image. (
  • Organizational identification (OI) is a form of organizational control and happens when "a decision maker identifies with an organization [and] desires to choose the alternative which best promotes the perceived interests of that organization" (Cheney and Tompkins, 1987). (
  • Generally speaking, emotional dysregulation has been defined as difficulties in controlling the influence of emotional arousal on the organization and quality of thoughts, actions, and interactions. (

  • It's defined as both a brain and behavior disorder. (
  • Feeding may also be influenced by environmental cues, sensory inputs, and other behaviors, implying the involvement of higher brain regions. (
  • GABA progenitors grafted into the adult epileptic brain control seizures and abnormal behavior. (
  • It is possible that elevated brain levels of 5-HT inhibit the activity of the AVP system, resulting in a decrease in aggressive behavior. (
  • A new CNN article predicts that within 75 years people will have embedded microchips within their brain that will allow their behavior to be controlled by a third party. (
  • These findings demonstrate a selective role for non-NMDA receptors in the nucleus accumbens shell in ingestive behavior, and suggest an important functional link between two major brain regions involved in reward, the nucleus accumbens and lateral hypothalamus. (
  • The stressed animals had increased levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain, and injections of serotonin induced anxiety-like behavior in control animals. (
  • This behavior was correlated with an increase in brain serotonin and was abolished by the injection of the benzodiazepine anxiolytic chlordiazepoxide. (
  • Our pharmacological studies with intact and behaving grasshoppers revealed a functional role for muscarinic acetylcholine receptors as being the basis for specific arousal in defined areas of the brain, underlying the selection and control of acoustic communication behavior. (
