Risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. (1/698)

OBJECTIVES: To identify risk factors for injuries and other health problems occurring during or immediately after participation in a marathon. METHODS: A prospective cohort study was undertaken of participants in the 1993 Auckland Citibank marathon. Demographic data, information on running experience, training and injuries, and information on other lifestyle factors were obtained from participants before the race using an interviewer-administered questionnaire. Information on injuries and other health problems sustained during or immediately after the marathon were obtained by a self administered questionnaire. Logistic regression analyses were undertaken to identify significant risk factors for health problems. RESULTS: This study, one of only a few controlled epidemiological studies that have been undertaken of running injuries, has identified a number of risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. Men were at increased risk of hamstring and calf problems, whereas women were at increased risk of hip problems. Participation in a marathon for the first time, participation in other sports, illness in the two weeks before the marathon, current use of medication, and drinking alcohol once a month or more, were associated with increased self reported risks of problems. While increased training seemed to increase the risk of front thigh and hamstring problems, it may decrease the risk of knee problems. There are significant but complex relations between age and risk of injury or health problem. CONCLUSIONS: This study has identified certain high risk subjects and risk factors for injuries and other health problems sustained in a marathon. In particular, subjects who have recently been unwell or are taking medication should weigh up carefully the pros and cons of participating.  (+info)

Stability and variability in competitive communities. (2/698)

Long-term variability in the abundance of populations depends on the sensitivity of species to environmental fluctuations and the amplification of environmental fluctuations by interactions among species. Although competitive interactions and species number may have diverse effects on variability measured at the individual species level, a combination of theoretical analyses shows that these factors have no effect on variability measured at the community level. Therefore, biodiversity may increase community stability by promoting diversity among species in their responses to environmental fluctuations, but increasing the number and strength of competitive interactions has little effect.  (+info)

Life games and statistical models. (3/698)

A set of equations is obtained, which describes the rules of a class of games (life games). These games simulate the processes of growth, death, survival, and competition. The equations are nonlinear difference equations, where the degree of nonlinearity is directly related to the number of interacting neighbors. The time evolution and the development of geometric patterns can be studied starting from these equations. Extensions and generalizations, such as the introduction of stochastic elements, can easily be accommodated in the formalism. Some significant unsolved problems are noted.  (+info)

An experimental analysis of competitive indeterminacy in Tribolium. (4/698)

This report reexamines experimentally the problem of competitive indeterminacy in mixed-species populations of the flour beetles, Tribolium confusum and T. castaneum. Indeterminacy takes the form of alternative competitive outcomes: in some replicate cultures one species exterminates the other with a probability, say p, whereas in others, the opposing species wins with a complementary probability, 1-p. The conventional explanation for this is the genetic founder effect hypothesis--an explanation based on genetic stochasticity. The experiment reported here partitioned indeterminacy into founder effect and nonfounder effect components. The results implicate demographic stochasticity, not classical genetic founder effect, as a factor influencing the identity of the winning species.  (+info)

Competition between noncontingent and contingent reinforcement schedules during response acquisition. (5/698)

We examined the extent to which noncontingent reinforcement (NCR), when used as treatment to reduce problem behavior, might interfere with differential reinforcement contingencies designed to strengthen alternative behavior. After conducting a functional analysis to identify the reinforcers maintaining 2 participants' self-injurious behavior (SIB), we delivered those reinforcers under dense NCR schedules. We delivered the same reinforcers concurrently under differential-reinforcement-of-alternative-behavior (DRA) contingencies in an attempt to strengthen replacement behaviors (mands). Results showed that the NCR plus DRA intervention was associated with a decrease in SIB but little or no increase in appropriate mands. In a subsequent phase, when the NCR schedule was thinned while the DRA schedule remained unchanged, SIB remained low and mands increased. These results suggest that dense NCR schedules may alter establishing operations that result in not only suppression of problem behavior but also interference with the acquisition of appropriate behavior. Thus, the strengthening of socially appropriate behaviors as replacements for problem behavior during NCR interventions might best be achieved if the NCR schedule is first thinned.  (+info)

Effects of alpha-tocopherol acetate on the swimming endurance of trained swimmers. (6/698)

Well-trained, competitive swimmers were divided into two groups. Group A was given 900 IU alpha-tocopherol acetate daily for 6 months while group B was given placebos. A swimming endurance test was given before the start of supplementation and after 1, 2, 5 and 6 months. No difference in swimmers' endurance was observed between the two groups during the 6-month period. There was also no difference in postexercise serum lactic acid levels. Younger, less well-trained, competitive swimmers were also divided into two groups. Group A received 900 IU alpha-tocopherol acetate daily while group B received placebos. Swimming times for these swimmers were erratic, reflecting a lack of training. alpha-Tocopherol did not appear to have any effect on their swimming endurance.  (+info)

Effects of competitive reward distribution on auditing and competitive responding. (7/698)

This study allowed subjects to audit each other's responding during a series of competitive contests. Six pairs of female college students competed in 3-min contests in which the competitive response was a knob pull. A sum of money was divided using a proportional distribution or a 100%/0% reward distribution. In the proportional distribution, a subject's proportion of the sum was her proportion of the total number of responses. Also, in every contest either subject could make a response that would end the contest prematurely and give both subjects the same amount: a sum equal to 33% of the competitive total. Each subject could press either or both of two audit buttons that displayed her own and the other's response total for 10 s. Results replicated earlier findings in showing the superiority of the proportional distribution in total number of competitive responses made. No subject audited continuously, and only 1 audited most of the time. Most audits were interpersonal, including both own and other's scores. Auditing typically was more frequent in 100%/0% contests in which subjects were more likely to stop the contest when they were far behind. Winners were more likely to audit than were losers. Competitive response rates increased when the differences revealed by audits were small and decreased when they were large. Overall audit patterns were consistent with the view that feedback as "news" is more often sought when it can lead to improved outcomes.  (+info)

The spatial distribution and size of rook (Corvus frugilegus) breeding colonies is affected by both the distribution of foraging habitat and by intercolony competition. (8/698)

Explanations for the variation in the number of nests at bird colonies have focused on competitive or habitat effects without considering potential interactions between the two. For the rook, a colonial corvid which breeds seasonally but forages around the colony throughout the year, both the amount of foraging habitat and its interaction with the number of competitors from surrounding colonies are important predictors of colony size. The distance over which these effects are strongest indicates that, for rooks, colony size may be limited outside of the breeding season when colony foraging ranges are larger and overlap to a greater extent.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Coevolution of female ovulatory signals and male-male competition in primates. AU - Nakahashi, Wataru. PY - 2016/3/7. Y1 - 2016/3/7. N2 - Visual signals of ovulation vary among primate species. Although slight ovulatory signals are considered primate ancestral traits of which some species still exhibit, some show prominent swelling of their perineal skin (exaggerated sexual swellings) and others do not exhibit any signals of ovulation (concealed ovulation). These signals strongly affect male mating behaviors. I develop an evolutionary model of female ovulatory signals and male-male competition. I assume that each male allocates his effort between attraction of females and male-male competition for dominance. Each female gains a benefit if she is fertile and free from the alpha male who always guards one of the most fertile females in the group, but suffers a cost if she expresses a different ovulatory signal from an ancestral trait. I show that various types of ovulatory signals ...

My recipe is derived from Kathy at Lunch Box Bunch, who names the breakfast tofu scramble a hearty, savory veg-classic. Out of eggs one morning and too cold to run outside to the corner bodega, I adapted her recipe to fit the ingredients I had on hand. |br /|This Spiced Citrus Tofu Veggie Scramble won me over fair and square. It is fantastic. The silken tofu was so light and airy, producing a crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth effect. The orange juice, apple cider vinegar and soy sauce yielded a very tempered acidity, and the light spice provided flavor without overpowering in the least. Put it this way: even though the scramble has hints of tumeric and cumin, this is NOT an Indian curry dish. It is 100% breakfast appropriate. A bountiful assortment of veggies add a wonderful flavor and nutrient boost to the piquant protein, plus a lovely crunch thanks to the kale and carrots. All wrapped up in a whole-wheat tortilla, this scramble is the perfect way to start your day. I enjoyed the tofu veggie scramble

The data contains biomarker and behavioral data on 41 juvenile blue monkeys observed during 4 consecutive 2 month periods, wherein each row of data represents a single subject-period, with corresponding measures of juvenile sex, age, number of groupmates, maternal rank, social strategy (according to PCs 1-3), uCP concentrations, fGC concentrations, fruit availability, and average daily rainfall. Each variable was measured as described in methods and centered according to its mean and standardized by its standard deviation before being entered in final models.
Considerable evidence suggests that the steroid hormone testosterone mediates major life-history trade-offs in primates, promoting mating effort at the expense of parenting effort or survival. In many species, chronic shifts in testosterone production over the life course correlate with investment in male-male competition. Chimpanzees and humans represent interesting test cases, because although closely related, they maintain divergent mating systems. Chimpanzee males do not invest in pair bonds or paternal care. Consequently, across the lifespan, their testosterone levels are expected to track changes in (1) behavioral investment in dominance striving, and (2) investment in sexually dimorphic musculature employed in male-male competition. Humans, by contrast, are expected to show weaker associations between testosterone and musculature, because the latter is important not only for male competition, but for mens work provisioning wives and children. We assayed >7000 chimpanzee and >3350 Tsimane ...
Sexual selection has often been invoked in explaining extravagant morphological and behavioural adaptations that function to increase mating success. Much is known about the effects of intersexual selection, which operates through female mate choice, in shaping animal signals. The role of intrasexual selection has been less clear. We report on the first evidence for the coevolution of signal complexity and sexual size dimorphism (SSD), which is characteristically produced by high levels of male-male competition. We used two complementary comparative methods in order to reveal that the use of complex signals is associated with SSD in extant species and that historical increases in complexity have occurred in regions of a phylogenetic tree characterized by high levels of pre-existing size dimorphism. We suggest that signal complexity has evolved in order to improve opponent assessment under conditions of high male-male competition. Our findings suggest that intrasexual selection may play an ...

In addition to the above, where mating occurs outside the group (and one or both sexes exhibit a degree of philopatry), selection will favour helping of males rather than females, because production of additional offspring within the group intensifies local competition for breeding vacancies (note that we have focused on the impact of kin selection on female behaviour; patterns of age-specific local relatedness experienced by males are, in the case of local mating, the precise mirror image of those experienced by females, but males will not experience the same age-specific change in the impact of kin selection because competition over paternity does not directly impact on female fecundity, and it is relatedness to local members of the opposite sex that changes with age).. We previously (Cant & Johnstone 2008) showed that the outcome of reproductive competition between generations will depend strongly on whether older females compete with their daughters or with their sons unrelated mates. Our ...
Imprinting generally emerges due to competition between the interests of males and females within a given species because of complex social structures. Whats good for father may not be good for mother. Lions live in prides, while tigers are relatively solitary. Apparently lionesses may mate with multiple males, so any given male has genes which tend to encourage growth in his own cubs as to as maximize his genes share of finite resources in a competitive environment. In contrast, the females genes tend to fight against this tendency, because shes equally related to all the potential cubs, and so wants to equally distribute resources as to maximize the number who might survive. Tigers are not subject to this dynamic. A tigress mates with one male, and so he is equally related to all the cubs. His genes would not want to encourage growth because there isnt competition between cubs from the male perspective, theyre all of a piece. So the female does not need to evolve anti-growth imprinting ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - The effects of density-dependent dispersal on the spatiotemporal dynamics of cyclic populations. AU - Smith, Matthew J.. AU - Sherratt, Jonathan A.. AU - Lambin, Xavier. PY - 2008/9/21. Y1 - 2008/9/21. N2 - Density-dependent dispersal occurs throughout the animal kingdom, and has been shown to occur in some taxa whose populations exhibit multi-year population cycles. However, the importance of density-dependent dispersal for the spatiotemporal dynamics of cyclic populations is unknown. We investigated the potential effects of density-dependent dispersal on the properties of periodic travelling waves predicted by two coupled reaction-diffusion models: a commonly used predator-prey model, and a general model of cyclic trophic interactions. We compared the effects of varying the gradient of both positive and negative density-dependent dispersal rates, to varying the ratio of the (constant) dispersal rates of the two interacting populations. Our comparison focussed on the possible ...

We have theoretically studied the combination effects of the electric and magnetic fields on the binding energy of an on-center donor impurity in disc-shaped GaAs/Al0.3Ga0.7As quantum dots (QDs) with emphasis on the competition effects between the two fields under externally applied pressure and temperature. The electric field is applied along the radial direction of the QD, while the magnetic field is applied along the growth direction. The numerical method we employed in the present calculations is the potential morphing method in the framework of the effective mass approximation. Our results show that the two fields exhibit a competition effect on the donor binding energy, leading to an invariant binding energy as in the zero field case at a critical line. This line separates the region corresponding to the red shift of the donor binding energy from the one referring to the blue shift of the binding energy. Comparing to the magnetic field effect, increasing in the QD sizes or applied ...

The way resource availability predictably alters interspecific interactions and may favor one resource-acquisition strategy over another is critical for understanding context dependency. The ubiquity of nitrogen (N) limitation across terrestrial environments is a driver of plant competition and the association of some plants with N-fixing bacteria (rhizobia) may alleviate competition with non-fixing plants. Conversely, when available soil N is elevated, competitive advantages imparted by rhizobia are hypothesized to decline because non-fixing species are able to readily acquire those nutrients. We manipulated competition, soil N, and soil microbial inoculation, employing the ground bean Amphicarpaea bracteata​​, a native annual N-fixing legume, and jewelweed Impatiens capensis, a native co-occurring non-fixing annual. We found that legume performance was negatively impacted by interspecific competition, but less so under lower soil N in both the greenhouse and field. The legume ...

Second, and maybe more importantly, many of the mooted reforms would have the effect of increasing the cost of surrogacy in India. Kirby concedes as much in his discussion. Raising costs may have some perverse effects on surrogates in India. All transactions between people in high income countries and people in low income countries have an exploitative element to them: they involve people from richer countries taking advantage of lower costs in poorer countries. Some people find this appalling; some think it is good because it aids economic growth and provides better alternatives for the people in low-income countries. I dont know where you would come down on this issue, but in either case the danger with raising costs in India is that it might drive the market for TGS to another cut-price jurisdiction. This could deprive women in India of income and push the problem onto another disadvantaged population. Kirby thinks this possibility could be mitigated by ensuring the costs dont go too high. ...

Strains with increased alkali tolerance have a broad application in industrial, especially for bioremediation, biodegradation, biocontrol and production of bio-based chemicals. A novel synthetic chromosome recombination and modification by LoxP-mediated evolution (SCRaMbLE) system has been introduced in the synthetic yeast genome (Sc 2.0), which enables generation of a yeast library with massive structural variations and potentially drives phenotypic evolution. The structural variations including deletion, inversion and duplication have been detected within synthetic yeast chromosomes. Haploid yeast strains harboring either one (synV) or two (synV and synX) synthetic chromosomes were subjected to SCRaMbLE. Seven of evolved strains with increased alkali tolerance at pH 8.0 were generated through multiple independent SCRaMbLE experiments. Various of structural variations were detected in evolved yeast strains by PCRTag analysis and whole genome sequencing including two complex structural variations. One

The reproduction of pastoral society and its chief means of subsistence was effected in an institutional and territorial framework that has been largely undermined by the changes that began with the colonial occupation. First, at the level of the social hierarchy, was the apparent rigidity of a structure that fixed the heredity status of each Moor, thus assigning him by virtue of his descent to one of the following groups: warriors, marabouts, tributaries (servant group), artisans, griots, former slaves and slaves. While this distribution of the Moorish population does not directly reflect a division of pastoral labour itself9 (only those tributaries specialized in animal husbandry appear to have been directly affected), the links between this structure and livestock, the focus and principal weapon of all social competition, may be clearly distinguished in almost every aspect of Moorish nomad life and activity. This summary of the hierarchical and ceremonial circulation of livestock will not ...

Because of the way they are organized and how similar they can be to sports, these competitions are often called DanceSport.. All levels of dancers are welcome to participate in the competition and show off their talents, with the hope that they will be selected for regional or national Championships.. Dance competitions can accept a variety of dance styles. These dance styles include tap, jazz, lyrical, and modern as well as tap. The judges evaluate the performances in front of the group and rate them on their technique, expression, and fitness.. To be able to compete in jazz, hip-hop, or ballroom dancing competitions, dancers must practice their skills for months. They also need to work on their fitness. These factors all come into play when it is time to perform. Judges will look at a variety of attributes to decide if the dancer should be allowed to continue on to the next round.. While dancing may seem like an enjoyable and entertaining activity to the viewers, it can be quite demanding for ...

Downloadable! Employee overwork and fatigue are a concern of managers in many organizations, as they may increase health and safety risks and decrease productivity. The problem is especially severe in competitive environments where compensation and promotions are awarded, explicitly or implicitly, on the basis of relative performance. In this paper, we propose a theory for, and study experimentally, the phenomenon of fatigue in dynamic contests aimed to mimic such settings. Theoretically, we find that if managers wish to avoid overwork, for example due to its negative impact on productivity, they should let their employees compete for promotion longer, with multiple intermediate performance evaluation stages. Experimentally, we find that subjects react strongly to changes in the environment related to fatigue and follow the comparative statics of equilibrium predictions. At the same time, within a given environment subjects behave as if they are unaware of the deteriorating effect of fatigue on their
Before I go, Id like to share my opinion on the parity concerns I believe come into question with regards to squared versus regular deadzones in Rocket League. For anyone unfamiliar, parity is the state or condition or being equal, or at least here, a measure of it. In any competitive environment, parity is a serious concern, and is especially applicable within competitive video gaming. Its very important that every player has the same tools at their disposal, and has the same opportunities as their competitors. The practical differences between these deadzones in Rocket League have always bothered me immensely, because it feels like a distinct trade-off between aspects of my play, and I feel sometimes at an advantage or disadvantage when compared to my competitors because of this. For example, I feel like using a square deadzone in the Solo Duel playlist is an objective advantage in a lot of circumstances, and often its immediately clear at high ranks if your opponent is using one, and you ...

This project explored the factors that influence the take up of innovative cancer treatments in hospitals, focusing on laparoscopic surgery for colorectal cancer.. Semi-structured interviews and focus groups were conducted with consultants. A literature review was carried out on the determinants of adoption and diffusion of innovation in hospitals. Quantitative analysis was carried out, using Hospital Episode Statistics, data from the General Medical Council and workforce data.. The results highlighted that variation in innovation adoption and diffusion is associated with multiple factors, from patient characteristics, to physicians networks. It was found that uptake is driven by surgeons themselves, not hospitals.. Quantitative research that matched data on patient treatment and surgeon employment enabled the team to construct surgeons work networks and the behaviour of peers, and found that these are key predictors of adoption and diffusion of innovation.. In researching the impact of ...

Obesity is believed to trigger changes to the bodys metabolism and has been directly linked to the development of diabetes. Patients with Type 2 diabetes have abnormally high blood sugar levels and their bodies stop using and making insulin properly.. While we might think of diabetes as an endocrine disorder, it affects many more of the bodys systems. Elevated blood sugars and accompanying inflammation have a detrimental effect on the vascular lining and the arteries, said Matthew Tooker, a nurse practitioner with the cardiology service at Cape Cod Hospital. A patient with diabetes without any sign of heart disease is at the same level of cardiovascular risk as someone whos had a heart attack but is not diabetic, he said.. Heart issues can be sneaky for diabetics, Tooker said. Diabetic patients may come to the emergency room with symptoms such as neuropathy or body aches, but still have the changes in heart function or elevations in cardiac enzymes that indicate heart injury.. So the muscles ...
