Lymphatic and hematopoietic cancer in teachers. (1/915)

A recent study found high rates of leukemia and related disorders among teachers. This finding may be related to exposure to childhood infections. Therefore, epidemiologic studies on the risk of lymphatic and hematopoietic cancer among teachers were systematically reviewed. Altogether 26 relevant investigations were identified, most from ad hoc publications rather than from scientific journals. Elevated risks of leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma were found in studies using proportional mortality or mortality odds ratios as outcome measures. However, these observations may reflect low overall mortality and do not necessarily indicate high death rates from the cancers of interest. In studies deriving standardized mortality or incidence ratios, the risk estimates were generally lower. The most striking finding was for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (approximate summary relative risk 1.36, 95% confidence interval 1.13-1.62), but it was likely to have been exaggerated by publication bias. In conclusion, no compelling epidemiologic evidence exists for a hazard of leukemia or related diseases among teachers.  (+info)

HIV stress in primary school teachers in Zambia. (2/915)

A study was made of stress factors experienced by primary school teachers in Zambia after they had attended a course on stress management and counselling skills. Their pupils were significantly affected by poverty, death and illness of parents, fellow-pupils and teachers, teenage sex and pregnancy, violence in the home and, among girls, low self-esteem. The HIV epidemic had a major bearing on these factors, and there were wide-ranging effects on the teachers' own lives. Despite the training they had been given, many teachers felt that they could not adequately counsel their pupils on these matters. The teachers were in need of continuing support and training to enable them to cope with this aspect of their work.  (+info)

Effectiveness of a prevention program for diabetic ketoacidosis in children. An 8-year study in schools and private practices. (3/915)

OBJECTIVE: To shorten the period of carbohydrate intolerance preceding the diagnosis of IDDM in children. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The incidence of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) was studied in newly diagnosed diabetic children aged 6-14 years, in the area of Parma, Italy, 8 years after an information program on DKA was introduced to teachers, students, parents, and pediatricians. Information was provided by displaying a poster with a few practical messages in 177 primary and secondary public schools. The pediatricians working in the same area were given equipment for the measurement of both glycosuria and blood glucose levels, as well as cards listing guidelines for the early diagnosis of diabetes, to be given to patients. A toll-free number was also provided. Clinical and laboratory features of 24 young diabetic patients diagnosed in the Parma area (group 1) were compared with those of 30 patients coming from two nearby areas in which no campaign for the prevention of DKA had been carried out (group 2). RESULTS: From 1 January 1991 to 31 December 1997, DKA was diagnosed in 3 children from group 1 (12.5%) and in 25 children from group 2 (83.0%) (chi 2 = 26.8; P = 0.0001). The three cases of DKA in group 1 were observed in 1991 (n = 1) and in 1992 (n = 2). No patients from the Parma area who had DKA were admitted to our unit after 1992. The duration of symptoms before diagnosis was 5.0 +/- 6.0 and 28.0 +/- 10.0 days (P < 0.0001), in groups 1 and 2, respectively, Metabolic derangements were less severe in patients of group 1 than in those of group 2. Hospitalization for the treatment of overt diabetes and for the teaching of self-management of the disease lasted 5.4 +/- 1.2 days in group 1 and 13.3 +/- 2.4 days in group 2 (P = 0.002). The total cost of the 8-year campaign was $23,470. CONCLUSIONS: The prevention program for DKA in diabetic children aged 6-14 years, carried out in the Parma area during the last 8 years, was successful. Thanks to this program, cumulative frequency of DKA in new-onset IDDM decreased from 78% during 1987-1991 to 12.5% during 1991-1997. None of the newly diagnosed diabetic children aged 6-14 years and from the Parma area were ever admitted to the hospital for DKA after 1992.  (+info)

Effectiveness of a social influences smoking prevention program as a function of provider type, training method, and school risk. (4/915)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the effect of provider (nurse or teacher) and training method (workshop or self-preparation) on outcomes of a social influences smoking prevention program. METHODS: One hundred elementary schools were stratified by school risk score (high risk = high smoking rate among senior students) and assigned randomly to conditions: (1) teacher/self-preparation, (2) teacher/workshop, (3) nurse/self-preparation, (4) nurse/workshop, and (5) control. Intervention occurred in grades 6 to 8. Smoking status at the end of grade 8 was the primary endpoint variable. RESULTS: Intervention reduced grade 8 smoking rates in high-risk schools (smoking rates of 26.9% in control vs 16.0% in intervention schools) but not in low-risk schools. There were no significant differences in outcome as a function of training method and no significant differences in outcome between teacher-provided and nurse-provided interventions in high- and medium-risk schools. Although nurses achieved better outcomes than did teachers in low-risk schools, neither provider type achieved outcomes superior to the control condition in those schools. CONCLUSIONS: Workshop training did not affect outcomes. Teachers and nurses were equally effective providers. Results suggest that programming should target high-risk schools.  (+info)

Career and parenting satisfaction among medical students, residents and physician teachers at a Canadian medical school. (5/915)

BACKGROUND: Studies of career and parenting satisfaction have focused separately on medical students, residents and practising physicians. The objective of this study was to compare satisfaction across a spectrum of stages of medical career. METHODS: A survey of incoming medical students, current medical students, residents and physician teachers at the University of Saskatchewan was conducted in the spring of 1997. Response rates were 77% (43/56), 81% (177/218), 65% (134/206) and 39% (215/554) respectively. Factors assessed in the stepwise regression analysis were the effect of sex, parenting and level of training on the likelihood of recommending parenting to medical students or residents, and on parenting dissatisfaction, job dissatisfaction, career dissatisfaction and the importance of flexibility within the college program to accommodate family obligations. RESULTS: More male than female physician teachers had partners (92% v. 81%, p < 0.01) and were parents (94% v. 72%, p < 0.01). Female physician teachers spent equal hours per week at work compared with their male counterparts (mean 52 and 58 hours respectively) and more than double the weekly time on family and household work (36 v. 14 hours, p < 0.01). Physician teachers were the most likely respondents to recommend parenting to residents and their peers. Residents were the most dissatisfied with their parenting time. At all career stages women were less likely than men to recommend parenting, were more dissatisfied with the amount of time spent as parents and were more likely to regard flexibility within the college program as beneficial. There were no sex-related differences in job dissatisfaction and career dissatisfaction. However, married women were more dissatisfied with their jobs than were married men. Job dissatisfaction was greatest among medical students, and career dissatisfaction was greatest among residents. INTERPRETATION: The optimal timing of parenthood appears to be upon completion of medical training. Women were less likely to recommend parenting, less satisfied with the time available for parenting and more likely to value flexibility within the college program to accommodate family needs. These differences did not translate into women experiencing more job or career dissatisfaction.  (+info)

Quantitative concept mapping in pulmonary physiology: comparison of student and faculty knowledge structures. (6/915)

Quantitative concept mapping, in contrast with qualitative approaches, is rigorous scientifically and permits statistical analyses of data about concept learning. This study extends past quantitative research on the structure of student concept learning in pulmonary physiology. Pathfinder scaling is used to derive concept maps for medical and veterinary students and their physiology instructors at Northwestern University and the University of Wisconsin, respectively. The concept maps are evaluated for coherence (internal consistency), student-instructor similarity, and correlation of similarity with final examination scores. Results show that student and instructor concept maps are coherent and that student concept maps become increasingly similar to instructors' concept maps from pre- to postinstruction, but that student-instructor concept map similarity does not correlate with examination performance. Research outcomes are discussed concerning possible sources of variation in student and faculty knowledge structures.  (+info)

Engaging colleges and universities as partners in Healthy Communities initiatives. (7/915)

Colleges and universities have an important role to play in building healthier communities. In many communities, however, these institutions are viewed with mistrust and skepticism, not as partners or assets. Academics often fail to respect and value community resources; they often assume the role of experts when they approach communities, in the context of short-term projects that place a priority on their goals rather than on communities' goals. Yet, colleges and universities have much to contribute as partners with their communities, and there are many strategies that can be used to develop community-campus partnerships. Whether the leadership for such a partnership starts with the community or the campus is not particularly important as long as the collaboration moves forward in a way that honors and values the strengths and assets of each.  (+info)

Prevalence of eye diseases in primary school children in a rural area of Tanzania. (8/915)

AIMS: The study measured the prevalence of eye diseases in primary school children between 7 and 19 years of age in a rural area of Tanzania, and investigated whether teachers could successfully provide the first component of a school eye screening service. METHODS: Teachers from each of three primary schools in Mwanza Region tested visual acuity using a Snellen's E chart in 1438 pupils. 1386 of these pupils were then interviewed and underwent a full eye examination by an eye team. RESULTS: 10 pupils (0.7%) had bilateral poor eyesight (visual acuity worse than 6/12), and an additional 14 pupils (1.0%) had unilateral poor eyesight. Significant refractive errors causing visual acuity less than 6/12 (1.0%), strabismus (0. 5%), and amblyopia (0.2%) were uncommon. Overall, 76 pupils (5.5%) had active trachoma, though the prevalence was 15.5% in the poorest school. 73 pupils (5.3%) reported night blindness, eight (0.6%) had Bitot's spots, and 11 (0.8%) had corneal scars. Simple screening by teachers correctly identified 80% of the pupils who were found to have bilateral poor eyesight by the eye team, with 91% specificity. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of significant refractive errors was not high enough to justify a school eye screening programme solely for this purpose. However, a programme may be justified in areas where trachoma is common. Further research is needed to validate the frequent reports of night blindness and to establish the public health importance of vitamin A deficiency in this age group.  (+info)

The purpose of this case study is to reveal prospective science teachers knowledge and achievement levels in electricity-related subjects. The data for the study were collected from 44 prospective teachers using three measurement tools. The data were then analyzed using software developed for the Probability and Possibility Calculation Statistics for Data Variables method, developed by Yilmaz (2011). It was concluded that prospective science teachers achievement levels in mathematical logic in electricity-related subjects are influenced by their achievement levels in physics and basic mathematical procedures, as well as their knowledge levels. However, it was observed that the main influence on their achievement level in mathematical logic is the logical structure of knowledge, and not the knowledge level in the variables

The first research question was investigated as part of a larger empirical study which identified and monitored changes in teachers perceptions of learning technologies over a two year period. The participants were 15 experienced high school teachers at Euroa Secondary College (ESC), Victoria, Australia. The teachers volunteered to be part of the research. The group had an average age of 39 years. Data was collected through semi-structured, open-ended interviews. A series of guide questions were designed, piloted and refined. Examples of the guide questions can be found in the illustrative quotes in the Results section of the paper. Two pilot interviews were held; 15 teachers were interviewed at the beginning of the research period; and 14 of the same teachers at the end. Teachers responses to the guide questions were probed during the interviews until an understanding was achieved between the interviewer and the teacher whereupon the next guide question was introduced. The interviews were ...

Collective teacher efficacy is a social construct in schools defined as teachers sense of group effectiveness. This is a powerful construct whereby teachers perceptions are a driving force for school culture and student achievement. This cross-sectional study used a quantitative approach to examine teachers collective efficacy as it relates to their perceptions of supervisory practices. Correlational and predictive analyses were performed to analyze the degree of the relationship between collective efficacy and supervisory practices. Additionally, this study examined teachers perceptions of strong instructional leadership as it relates to the instructional leadership strategies used by supervisors in 14 schools in one school district. The purpose of this study was to make clear statements for school leaders in regard to the strategies that are associated with teachers perceptions of collective efficacy and teachers perceptions of strong instructional leadership.

The International Task Force on Teachers for Education 2030 calls on all governments, education providers and funders - public and private - to recognise the critical roles that teachers play in the COVID-19 response and recovery. Call to action by the International Task Force on Teachers. As of 25 March, 165 countries have closed all their schools because of the COVID-19 virus, affecting nearly 1.5 billion students and 63 million primary and secondary school teachers. This number is predicted to rise. The closures pose unprecedented challenges for education systems throughout the world. This global health crisis threatens to significantly slow progress towards many of the global goals, in particular, the fourth Sustainable Development Goal ("Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all"). It is also likely to exacerbate the global learning crisis and global education inequalities as the impacts will fall disproportionately on the ...
I started editing the first opinion piece, but I stopped because I had some fundamental issues with the argument. First of all, I dont think you are commenting on K-12 teachers, because why should an elementary school teacher be a professional mathematician to teach 3rd grade level math. You are really speaking about high school level math and science teachers. But even so I am not convinced that a high school teacher needs to be a professional engineer working for Boeing or a programmer working for Google to be effective. I agree that a greater amount of training should be required of high school level math and science teachers, but how can we expect them to also have professional careers outside of being a full-time teacher? Im actually not entirely sure what your argument is. I think you make a more effective argument about the American desire for immediate money/power/gratification. But this isnt the same argument as what you begin the piece with. My personal belief is that Americans are ...

At a recent workshop for high school and community college teachers, an earnest young high school teacher explained forcefully to an experienced community college teacher that grammar was of no use in teaching writing. The high school teacher cited the now-famous Braddock, Lloyd-Jones, and Schoer quotation. She said that knowing grammar had no effect on writing ability, insisting that "all the research" counterbalanced any intuitive and experiential evidence the older teacher might have to offer. The young teacher had, however, misquoted the passage; it says: "the teaching of formal [emphasis ours] grammar has a negligible or, because it usually displaces some instruction and practice in composi- tion, even a harmful effect on the improvement of writing" (37-38 ...
Who is being targeted with the Us? It varies: veteran master teachers have received Us. New developing and promising young teachers have received Us. All kinds of teachers are now getting Us. Lets be frank: not all teachers excel at this job. We all know teachers who are neglectful and who text instead of teach. You can hear some teachers screaming through the walls, using the tactic of humiliation rather motivation. However, it is not our job as union members to inform administrators of other teachers activities. Thats called spying. Administrators know who these teachers are: theyre often among the groupies surrounding administrators! These teachers garner favors by spying and tattling. Calling attention to "brown nosers" can be self-defeating. If they also received Us, it would not make the situation better and we would be playing along with the DOEs blame game. As union members we do not spy on each other. Thats not our job. Our job is to educate children. We made a pledge to protect ...
Before I happily landed at a community college, which lasted for 34 years, i had the misfortune of teaching high school. (People who can do that should be given a medal or even be made a knight+getting a salary of at least $200.000 a year.) At any rate, I broke up 3 fights in 4 years of mentoring (and attempting to corrupt) the youth at the school. It isnt hard to do, at least for a reasonably healthy male teacher who can operate in a stealthy manner. The students are intent on bashing one another and they shouldnt see you coming as you blindside one of them, shouldering him to the ground. (It takes a certain amount of restraint not to pound him with maximum velocity if he is a known bully ...
Adrienne Havercroft is Hamilton teacher who says the existence of separate public and Catholic boards hindered her search for full-time work. As a non-Catholic, she was ineligible for the one-third of the publicly-funded teaching jobs in her region available through the separate school board, she says.. Only Catholic teachers are eligible for those positions, even though non-Catholic students can attend the schools and, according to the coalition, property taxes paid by Catholic residents in Hamilton account for only 7 per cent of the boards funding, with the rest coming from general provincial revenues.. "Its been such a frustrating situation for many of us," says Havercroft, who spent five years trying to land a full-time position as a high school teacher after graduating in 2009. She said new Catholic teachers were able to get permanent jobs much more quickly.. Havercroft has a toddler and is currently a supply teacher at the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board..

Nearly every college and university offers a major in Chemistry. Some prepare secondary school teachers, others researchers. You will discover that Clarksons program in Chemistry is special and exciting. The unique position of Clarkson University is the major reason we feel so strongly about our Chemistry program. Clarkson is a relatively small institution, about 2,800 students. Yet, we are one of the major research institutions in the Northeast. Many of our professors are internationally recognized. Just as important as our facultys scientific credentials, however, is the fact that they care about teaching. They give personal attention to each student.. Our classes are small, and even the most senior faculty teach undergraduate courses. You will have every opportunity not only to excel, but to excel in an environment of mentorship and support. The nature of our Chemistry curriculum is also unique. Chemistry at Clarkson is more than theory and classroom study. We "do" Chemistry. The applied ...
The lab of UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member Nadav Ahituv, PhD, studies how abnormalities in DNA segments that control the activity of genes could lead to diseases. Recently, researchers there have begun applying that focus to seeking a genetic basis and diagnosis for an epilepsy of early childhood, a disease that hit home for one lab scientist. When Ramon Birnbaum, PhD, came to UCSF three years ago to do his postdoctoral work on the role of genetic regulation in human disease in the lab of School of Pharmacy faculty member Nadav Ahituv, PhD, epilepsy was barely on his radar.. Once, while serving in the Israeli military, he saw a fellow soldier suffer a seizure. Upon arriving on campus, just out of curiosity, he attended a presentation by Daniel Lowenstein, MD, director of the UCSF Epilepsy Center. That was the sum total of Birnbaums experience with this spectrum of seizure disorders, which affect an estimated 50 million people worldwide.. Then, in 2010, his daughter Ruth was born, and ...

In a recent case here in Australia, one of dozens of cases over the years of female teachers seducing and carrying on affairs with male students, the female teacher who seduced a 14yo boy and carried on an affair with him, and got him to bring his friends over to her place, for group sex, and fed them booze and drugs.. She was booted out of teaching, got a a suspended sentance and the judge expressed regret that because of her conviction she would not be able to return to teaching, describing her as an excellent teacher. She will not be placed on the sex affender register. A male teacher a few years earlier who had sexual relationships with a couple of female students was given 7 years jail, and placed on the sex offenders register. No giving them booze and drugs, no group sex, and it was found that the girls who had sex with him pursued him. Apparently he was considered the hunk of the school and all the teeny girls wanted to bang him.. This isnt any different to when I was 15yo old in ...

Every critic of student-faculty romance I spoke to first raised the power differential argument. The idea is that students can never give meaningful consent in a close relationship with a professor. In a 2000 paper, [Shirley] Katz [a lawyer and senior scholar at York University in Toronto] describes how professors have the power to grade and evaluate a students work, the power to provide references for graduate and professional schools and for jobs, the power to serve as intellectual or career mentors and sometimes as role models. So even if there is no promise of reward or threat of punishment, the students vulnerability makes that relationship, ipso facto, exploitative.. "Katz says that there is statistical and anecdotal evidence showing a significant number of students who dated their professors changed their minds after a period of time about whether the relationship was exploitative. Had I changed my mind about my relationship with Peter, she asked.. "I remember how debilitating my ...

These findings have broad implications for how students should be assessed and teacher quality measured. Similar to elementary and secondary school teachers, who often have advance knowledge of assessment content in high-stakes testing systems, all professors teaching a given course at USAFA have an advance copy of the exam before it is given. Hence, educators in both settings must choose how much time to allocate to tasks that have great value for raising current scores but may have little value for lasting knowledge. Using our various measures of quality to rank-order professors leads to profoundly different results. As an illustration, the introductory calculus professor in our sample who ranks dead last in deep learning ranks sixth and seventh best in student evaluations and contemporaneous value-added, respectively. These findings support recent research by Barlevy and Neal (2009), who propose an incentive pay scheme that links teacher compensation to the ranks of their students within ...
The subjects (106) who participated in this study were secondary high school teachers in various subject matter areas. Other demographic variables looked at were sex, years of experience, highest academic degree earned. Teachers were also asked to estimate how they might be rated by their supervisors. A questionnaire containing 30 competency statements was used to examine the teachers proficiencies and the source of their competencies. These teachers perceived themselves as most proficient in the competency area of demonstrating knowledge in subject matter area, and communication with students, and least proficient in the ability to compile information related to students educational, emotional, and physical functioning, and the competency area of individualizing instruction to meet the varying needs of students, via techniques such as mastery learning, alternative assignments and group work ...

Results The most relevant indicators of SEP in this study were internet access and private health insurance. We observed significant inverse trends in obesity, WHR and WC in relation to SEP (all ptrend,0.001). Compared with women with low SEP, women in the middle (prevalence ratio (PR) 0.97, 95% CI 0.93 to 1.02) and high (PR 0.85, 95% CI 0.81 to 0.90) SEP tertiles were less likely to be obese in multivariable models. Results were similar in models of WHR and WC adjusting for BMI. For example, women with high versus low SEP were 14% less likely to have an elevated WHR (PR 0.86, 95% CI 0.83 to 0.89) and 7% less likely to have a high WC (PR 0.93, 95% CI 0.89 to 0.97). ...
Background: Identifying the factors that influence teacher beliefs about teaching children with learning difficulties is important for the success of inclusive education. This study explores the relationship between teachers role, self-efficacy, attitudes towards disabled people, teaching experience and training, on teachers attributions for childrens difficulties in learning. Method: One hundred and eighteen primary school teachers (44 general mainstream, 33 mainstream learning support, and 41 special education teachers) completed the short form of the Teachers Sense of Efficacy Scale, the Interaction with Disabled Persons Scale (IDP), and a revised version of the Teacher Attribution Scale. Results: Regression analysis found that teachers role influenced stability and controllability attributions. However, for stability attributions the effect was not sustained when examined in the context of the other factors of teaching efficacy, experience, training, and attitudes towards disability. ...

Children with short attention spans can now get to grips with lessons, thanks to an innovative pencil case. Made of silicone and gel strips, it is designed to counteract the effects of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).. Many children with this condition want to be in constant physical contact with objects such as clothes and people. The colourful case is made up of bobbled and ribbed textures for children to prod and fidget with so they can concentrate more on their studies.. Gillian Chalmers, a design student at Grays School of Art in Aberdeen, came up with the idea after her mother, a secondary school teacher, highlighted the problems she faced trying to get her pupils to focus.. After asking children in special needs schools what they liked to touch and feel, she set about designing the case for them. The finished product has 13 silicone strips that children can weave their pencils and crayons through before it wraps round into a unique pencil case.. She says: "I didnt want ...

Prior to applying to do my PGCE at Oxford Brookes I was a research scientist at Oxford University. I knew that deep down I really wanted to be a primary school teacher but I decided to follow my interest in science.. The desire to teach finally won out last year and I applied to do a Primary PGCE at Oxford Brookes. Having seen friends and family undertake teacher training, I knew it was going to be intensive, but I wanted to do a PGCE rather than take another route into teaching as I value both the peer support from other students and working in a university setting.. I was attracted to the PGCE at Oxford Brookes as it offers broad training and there are specific seminars for all curriculum subjects alongside more general sessions concerning aspects of learning and teaching.

As secondary school teachers, do we ever carefully consider who is sat down in front of us? Im not talking about the spotty, arrogant, disengaged chap in the corner of your classroom; or the over-keen excitable young lady at the front, who offers the most diverse range of questions that you could never honestly have considered… Im talking about what is behind those personas, the stuff that makes learning more permanent.. There has been a whole raft of work around episodic memory in recent times and its background stems from the increased grey-matter in your classroom - the stuff that grows more rapidly in two periods of a persons life: our first 18 months on planet earth and early adolescence. This slows down the transfer of information within a persons body and it must be considered when planning activities for young learners. As a result of this increased grey matter and the negative effect that it has on our learning, the brain filters out about 99% of the information and stimuli that ...
The history of the school is an important part of the story of the Edinburgh Association for the University Education of Women and their drive to create university education for women in Scotland. The first meeting had taken place in 1866 before involving Mary Crudelius, Madeline Daniell and Sarah Mair.[5] Their aim was to get women into Edinburgh University and Walker became the "chief intellect and administrator".[6] In 1876, the ELEA decided to improve the pre-university stage of womens education and advertised classes in St. Georges Hall to help women pass university entrance level qualification. They also developed correspondence courses for women who could not attend classes,[7] In 1885 Mary Russell Walker was recalled from the Maria Grey Training College to Edinburgh[6] to lead the St Georges Training College which would train the first women secondary school teachers in Scotland. Mary was made the head of the college and when St. Georges High School for Girls was formed in 1888 she ...
Hodgson continued: "I am a seven month pregnant secondary school teacher who has sat in the Royal Berkshire Hospital for 11 days with my mother and I can promise you that our NHS is struggling," she wrote.. "That last night no one was free to help my mum go to the toilet. That staff were appalled with how long she had to wait for personal care and greatly distressed to have caused her and us such upset but they had to firefight. That [this] wasnt their fault.". Hodgson went on to say that her mother has been battling breast cancer for three years, and she is grateful for everything the NHS has done to support her during this time, and thus wants people to consider the future of the NHS when casting their votes in the general election on 8 June.. "I know from my experience in school what it is to desperately want to help but not to be able to; given a lack of funding and resources," she said. "I know people are impassioned about Brexit & nuclear weaponry and anti-terrorism but NONE of that means ...
