Distribution of room size in hospitals. (1/568)

In the design of such complex buildings as hospitals the planner's problem is to provide a minimal amount of permanent structure so that it shall not get in the way of functional behavior of the occupants and their ability to change their environment. The purpose of this study was to discover which intervals seem to occur in hospitals by measuring the room size distribution found in existing buildings or buildings ready for construction. The results seem to confirm that the range of room sizes required is small and that exceptions are relatively rare.  (+info)

A population-based study of environmental hazards in the homes of older persons. (2/568)

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to estimate the population-based prevalence of environmental hazards in the homes of older persons and to determine whether the prevalence of these hazards differs by housing type or by level of disability in terms of activities of daily living (ADLs). METHODS: An environmental assessment was completed in the homes of 1000 persons 72 years and older. Weighted prevalence rates were calculated for each of the potential hazards and subsequently compared among subgroups of participants characterized by housing type and level of ADL disability. RESULTS: Overall, the prevalence of most environmental hazards was high. Two or more hazards were found in 59% of bathrooms and in 23% to 42% of the other rooms. Nearly all homes had at least 2 potential hazards. Although age-restricted housing was less hazardous than community housing, older persons who were disabled were no less likely to be exposed to environmental hazards than older persons who were nondisabled. CONCLUSIONS: Environmental hazards are common in the homes of community-living older persons.  (+info)

Place recognition monitored by location-driven operant responding during passive transport of the rat over a circular trajectory. (3/568)

Spatial memory of animals is usually tested in navigation tasks that do not allow recognition and recall processes to be separated from the mechanisms of goal-directed locomotion. In the present study, place recognition was examined in rats (n = 7) confined in an operant chamber mounted on the periphery of a slowly rotating disk (diameter 1 m, angular velocity 9 degrees /s). The animals were passively transported over a circular trajectory and were rewarded for bar pressing when they passed across a 60 degrees -wide segment of the path. This segment was recognizable with reference to room landmarks visible from the operant box. Responding defined in the coordinate system of the room increased when the chamber entered the 60 degrees -wide approach zone, culminated at the entrance into the reward sector, was decreased inside it by eating the available reward, and rapidly declined to zero at the exit from this zone. When reward was discontinued, the skewed response distribution changed into a symmetric one with a maximum in the center of the reward sector. With advancing extinction, the response peak in the reward sector decreased in most rats proportionally to the overall decline of bar pressing. The rewarded and nonrewarded response patterns indicate that passively transported rats can recognize their position in the environment with an accuracy comparable to that of actively navigating animals and that location-driven operant responding can serve as a useful tool in the analysis of the underlying neural mechanisms.  (+info)

Is it feasible to construct a community profile of exposure to industrial air pollution? (4/568)

OBJECTIVE: An epidemiological investigation to assess the validity of residential proximity to industry as a measure of community exposure. METHODS: 19 Housing estates in Teesside (population 1991: 77 330) in north east England were grouped into zones: A=near; B=intermediate; C=further from industry. With residential proximity of socioeconomically matched populations as a starting point a historical land use survey, historical air quality reports, air quality monitoring, dispersion modelling data, and questionnaire data, were examined. RESULTS: The populations in zones A, B, and C were similar for socioeconomic indicators and smoking history. Areas currently closest to industry had also been closest for most of the 20th century. Historical reports highlighted the influence of industrial emissions to local air quality, but it was difficult to follow spatial pollution patterns over time. Whereas contemporary NO(x) and benzene concentrations showed no geographical variation, dispersion modelling of emissions (116 industrial stacks, traffic, and domestic sources) showed a gradient associated with industry. The presumed exposure gradient of areas by proximity to industry (A>B>C) was evident for all of zone A and most of zones B and C. CONCLUSIONS: It was feasible to assemble a picture of community exposure by integration of measurements from different sources. Proximity of residence was a reasonable surrogate for complex community exposure.  (+info)

Does fitness erode in the absence of selection? An experimental test with Tribolium. (5/568)

In the absence of natural selection, average fitness in the population is expected to decline due to the accumulation of deleterious mutations. Replicate populations of flour beetles (Tribolium confusum) were maintained for 22 generations in the virtual absence of selection (random mating, favorable environment, excess of food, and mortality of only 3%). Larva-to-adult survivorship rates were similar in the stock population and selection-free populations. In contrast, starvation resistance of adult beetles from selection-free populations was significantly reduced (by more than 2% per generation). When tested in the favorable environment, beetles in one selection-free population had significantly slower development and smaller sizes of females than beetles from the stock population. Since such changes in these fitness components are usually maladaptive, they indicate possible erosion of fitness under relaxed selection at the rate of 0.1-0.2% per generation. No fitness erosion was detectable in the second selection-free population.  (+info)

The economic implications of self-care: the effect of lifestyle, functional adaptations, and medical self-care among a national sample of Medicare beneficiaries. (6/568)

OBJECTIVES: Self-care includes actions taken by individuals to promote or ensure their health, to recover from diseases or injuries, or to manage their effects. This study measured associations between self-care practices (lifestyle practices, adaptations to functional limitations, and medical self-care) and Medicare expenditures among a national sample of adults 65 years and older. METHODS: Regression models of Medicare use and expenditures were estimated by using the National Survey of Self-Care and Aging and Medicare claims for 4 years following a baseline interview. RESULTS: Lifestyle factors (swimming and walking) and functional adaptations (general home modifications) were associated with reductions in monthly Medicare expenditures over a 12-month follow-up period. Expenditure reductions were found over the 48-month follow-up period for participation in active sports, gardening, and medical self-care. Practices associated with increases in expenditures included smoking, physical exercise (possibly of a more strenuous nature), and specific home modifications. CONCLUSIONS: Certain self-care practices appear to have significant implications for Medicare expenditures and presumptively for the health status of older adults. Such practices should be encouraged among older adults as a matter of national health policy.  (+info)

The association of school environments with youth physical activity. (7/568)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the association of school environmental characteristics with student physical activity on campus. METHODS: Physical activity areas (n = 137) at 24 public middle schools were assessed for area type, size, and improvements (e.g., basketball courts). Student physical activity and the presence of equipment and supervision were directly observed before school, after lunch, and after school. RESULTS: Environmental characteristics explained 42% of the variance in the proportion of girls who were physically active and 59% of the variance for boys. CONCLUSIONS: School environments with high levels of supervision and improvements stimulated girls and boys to be more physically active.  (+info)

Crash and injury reduction following installation of roundabouts in the United States. (8/568)

OBJECTIVES: This study estimated potential reductions in motor vehicle crashes and injuries associated with the use of roundabouts as an alternative to signal and stop sign control at intersections in the United States. METHODS: An empiric Bayes procedure was used to estimate changes in motor vehicle crashes following conversion of 24 intersections from stop sign and traffic signal control to modern roundabouts. RESULTS: There were highly significant reductions of 38% for all crash severities combined and of 76% for all injury crashes. Reductions in the numbers of fatal and incapacitating injury crashes were estimated at about 90%. CONCLUSIONS: Results are consistent with numerous international studies and suggest that roundabout installation should be strongly promoted as an effective safety treatment.  (+info)

BACKGROUND: With an estimated one billion hypertension cases worldwide, the role of the built environment in its prevention and control is still uncertain. The present study aims to examine the associations between neighbourhood walkability and hypertension in a large and diverse population-based cohort. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We examined the association between neighbourhood walkability and blood pressure outcomes for N = 429,334 participants drawn from the UK Biobank and aged 38-73 years. Neighbourhood walkability was objectively modelled from detailed building footprint-level data within multi-scale functional neighbourhoods (1.0-, 1.5- and 2.0-kilometer street catchments of geocoded dwelling). A series of linear and modified Poisson regression models were employed to examine the association between walkability and outcomes of diastolic blood pressure (DBP in mmHg), systolic blood pressure (SBP in mmHg) and prevalent hypertension adjusting for socio-demographic, lifestyle and related physical
Privacy advocates have objected to the Google Street View feature, pointing to photographs that show people leaving strip clubs, protesters at an abortion clinic, sunbathers in bikinis, cottagers at public parks, people picking up prostitutes and people engaging in activities visible from public property which they do not wish to be photographed and have published online. Google maintains that the photos were taken from public property. However, this does not take into account that the Street View cameras take pictures from an elevated position, enabling them to look over hedges and walls designed to prevent some areas from being open to public view. Before launching the service, Google removed photos of domestic violence shelters, and it allows users to flag inappropriate or sensitive imagery for Google to review and remove. When the service was first launched, the process for requesting that an image be removed was not trivial. Google changed its policy to make removal more straightforward, ...

BACKGROUND: Societies face the challenge of keeping people active as they age. Walkable neighborhoods have been associated with physical activity, but more rigorous analytical approaches are needed. OBJECTIVES: We used longitudinal data from adult residents of Brisbane, Australia (40 - 65 years of age at baseline) to estimate effects of changes in neighborhood characteristics over a 6-y period on the likelihood of walking for transport. METHODS: Analyses included 2,789 - 9,747 How Areas Influence Health and Activity (HABITAT) cohort participants from 200 neighborhoods at baseline (2007) who completed up to three follow-up questionnaires (through 2013). Principal components analysis was used to derive a proxy measure of walkability preference. Environmental predictors were changes in street connectivity, residential density, and land use mix within a onekilometer network buffer. Associations with any walking and minutes of walking were estimated using logistic and linear regression, including ...

Ecological models of health behaviour are an important conceptual framework to address the multiple correlates of obesity. Several single-country studies previously examined the relationship between the built environment and obesity in adults, but results are very diverse. An important reason for these mixed results is the limited variability in built environments in these single-country studies. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine associations between perceived neighbourhood built environmental attributes and BMI/weight status in a multi-country study including 12 environmentally and culturally diverse countries. A multi-site cross-sectional study was conducted in 17 cities (study sites) across 12 countries (Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the UK and USA). Participants (n = 14222, 18-66 years) self-reported perceived neighbourhood environmental attributes. Height and weight were self-reported in eight countries, and measured

House prices have been on the rise in the UK for a number of years and many researchers have attempted to predict them. With major improvements in computing power and technology, a rise in deep learning methods and their application to big data has been observed. Can the two be combined in a novel way? We first explore whether house prices in London in the years 2015 and2016 can be estimated using Google Street View images and deep learning tools. We find that house prices can be inferred from Google Street View images, although predictions for areas with very high prices are less reliable. We also explore whether we can automatically identify areas which have experienced the highest relative increases in house price over the past ten years. Here we find that predictions are reasonable, but the model appears to mostly label areas which resemble the centre of London as areas in which house prices have risen the most, rather than capturing more nuanced patterns across the city. Analysis of changes ...

Early care and education (ECE) settings play an important role in shaping the nutrition and physical activity habits of young children. Increasing research attention is being directed toward family child care homes (FCCHs) specifically. However, existing measures of child care nutrition and physical activity environments are limited in that they have been created for use with center-based programs and require modification for studies involving FCCHs. This paper describes the modification of the Environment and Policy Assessment and Observation (EPAO) for use in FCCHs. The EPAO underwent a through modification process that incorporated an updated format for the data collection instrument, assessment of emerging best practices, tailoring to the FCCH environment, and creation of a new scoring rubric. The new instrument was implemented as part of a larger randomized control trial. To assess inter-rater reliability, observations on 61 different days were performed independently by two data collectors. To

Importantly, in the two years reviewed in the survey, 9.4% of participants reported at least one case of transport-associated pneumonia and 35 transported horses had died, most commonly from fractures, colic or pneumonia.. Transport-related pneumonia. Previous research had already identified transportation aggravates pre-existing respiratory disease; in other words, if you transport a sick horse, you will end up with a sicker horse at the other end.. Dr Padalino and colleagues, however, questioned whether a high level of stress during transport could play a role in the progression of disease and could, therefore, be used to identify those individuals who are at risk of developing respiratory illness post-travel.. To investigate this particular question, 12 horses - all experienced travelers - were transported on an eight-hour journey.. The horses were split into two groups, which travelled the same route, in the same horse truck on two separate days. They travelled side-on in a six-horse truck ...

The Paper focuses on the inbound know-how transfer for the development of open innovation as an approach to business management. It can be a challenging task for useful and meaningful transfer of external know-how to create value, thus the addressed research questions are: What constitutes a successful know-how transfer? How to measure performance of know-how transfer? How transfer of know-how should be done? Qualitative research methods - participatory action research within a specific case and application of existing theories as well as focus groups discussions were applied to create the study and obtain triangulation. The paper applied both inductive and deductive reasoning. The research shows that learning outcomes based approach can be used for successful know-how transfer. Performance of know-how transfer is affected by accuracy of the stated aim (learning outcomes), applied teaching, learning and assessment methods and both internal and external environment characteristics of the stakeholders

How would environmental education be implemented for effectiveness today? Deep reflection on the way of teaching environment in classes to achieve effectiveness is required. If there exist differences in students environmental perception depending on environment class pattern, its most effective way should be looked for. In environmental education, inducing the students to have advisable attitude voluntary about environment is more important than teaching them environmental knowledge. From such view, students active participation is necessary for successful environmental classes. Students need to be set to share their principle, values, attitude about environment problems at environmental class through presentation which is important factor to make them have advisable environmental attitude. Therefore, environmental class need to be carried out student-led way. For that, a class model need to be designed which will be helpful for the students to arrange and elaborate their emitting thought ...

Here I propose to deploy a proton-transfer-reaction time-of-flight mass spectrometer (PTR-ToF-MS) for temporally and spatially resolved measurements of VOC composition in residential environment. The goal is to characterize the microbial contribution to the VOC composition in living environment, as compared to contributions from human occupants, outdoor air, and other sources. Statistical methods will be applied to the acquired full mass spectral matrix to resolve fingerprint mass spectra of key indoor VOC sources. The hypothesis is that the various key VOC sources have distinct mass spectral features and time and spatial variation. This work will be advised primarily by Professor Allen Goldstein and secondarily by Professor William Nazaroff at the University of California, Berkeley.. ...
