Does risk factor epidemiology put epidemiology at risk? Peering into the future. (1/5164)

The multiple cause black box paradigm of the current risk factor era in epidemiology is growing less serviceable. This single level paradigm is likely to be displaced. The signs are that the growing strength of molecular epidemiology on the one side, and of a global epidemiology based on information systems on the other, will come to dominate epidemiology and segregate it into separate disciplines. At the same time, the links with public health interests grow weaker. A multilevel ecoepidemiology has the potential to bind these strands together.  (+info)

The European mesothelioma epidemic. (2/5164)

Projections for the period 1995-2029 suggest that the number of men dying from mesothelioma in Western Europe each year will almost double over the next 20 years, from 5000 in 1998 to about 9000 around 2018, and then decline, with a total of about a quarter of a million deaths over the next 35 years. The highest risk will be suffered by men born around 1945-50, of whom about 1 in 150 will die of mesothelioma. Asbestos use in Western Europe remained high until 1980, and substantial quantities are still used in several European countries. These projections are based on the fit of a simple age and birth cohort model to male pleural cancer mortality from 1970 to 1989 for six countries (Britain, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Switzerland) which together account for three-quarters of the population of Western Europe. The model was tested by comparing observed and predicted numbers of deaths for the period 1990-94. The ratio of mesothelioma to recorded pleural cancer mortality has been 1.6:1 in Britain but was assumed to be 1:1 in other countries.  (+info)

Usefulness of fractional flow reserve to predict clinical outcome after balloon angioplasty. (3/5164)

BACKGROUND: After regular coronary balloon angioplasty, it would be helpful to identify those patients who have a low cardiac event rate. Coronary angiography alone is not sensitive enough for that purpose, but it has been suggested that the combination of optimal angiographic and optimal functional results indicates a low restenosis chance. Pressure-derived myocardial fractional flow reserve (FFR) is an index of the functional severity of the residual epicardial lesion and could be useful for that purpose. METHODS AND RESULTS: In 60 consecutive patients with single-vessel disease, balloon angioplasty was performed by use of a pressure instead of a regular guide wire. Both quantitative coronary angiography (QCA) and measurement of FFR were performed 15 minutes after the procedure. A successful angioplasty result, defined as a residual diameter stenosis (DS) <50%, was achieved in 58 patients. In these patients, DS and FFR, measured 15 minutes after PTCA, were analyzed in relation to clinical outcome. In those 26 patients with both optimal angiographic (residual DS by QCA /=0.90) results, event-free survival rates at 6, 12, and 24 months were 92+/-5%, 92+/-5%, and 88+/-6%, respectively, versus 72+/-8%, 69+/-8%, and 59+/-9%, respectively, in the remaining 32 patients in whom the angiographic or functional result or both were suboptimal (P=0.047, P=0.028, and P=0.014, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: In patients with a residual DS /=0.90, clinical outcome up to 2 years is excellent. Therefore, there is a complementary value of coronary angiography and coronary pressure measurement in the evaluation of PTCA result.  (+info)

Pregnancies averted among U.S. teenagers by the use of contraceptives. (4/5164)

CONTEXT: The personal and social costs associated with teenage pregnancy in the United States concern many policymakers and researchers, yet the role of contraception in preventing these pregnancies has not been adequately quantified. METHODS: Published estimates of contraceptive effectiveness were applied to 1995 National Survey of Family Growth data on sexual and contraceptive practices in order to estimate the number of pregnancies averted through the use of contraceptives by U.S. teenagers. Four scenarios of contraceptives access--from current levels of access to highly restricted access--and teenagers' sexual and contraceptive practices in response to such restrictions are used to project the potential impact on pregnancies among teenagers. RESULTS: Current levels of contraceptive use averted an estimated 1.65 million pregnancies among 15-19-year-old women in the United States during 1995. If these young women had been denied access to both prescription and over-the-counter contraceptive methods, an estimated one million additional pregnancies (ranging from 750,000 to 1.25 million) would have occurred, assuming some decrease in sexual activity. These pregnancies would have led to 480,000 live births, 390,000 abortions, 120,000 miscarriages, 10,000 ectopic pregnancies and 37 maternal deaths. CONCLUSIONS: Contraceptive use by teenage women prevents pregnancies and negative pregnancy-related health consequences that can disrupt the lives of adolescent women and that have substantial societal costs. Continued and expanded access to contraceptives for adolescents is a critically important public health strategy.  (+info)

Quality circles in ambulatory care: state of development and future perspective in Germany. (5/5164)

OBJECTIVE: To survey the quantitative development of quality circles (peer review groups; QC) and their moderators in ambulatory care in Germany, to describe approaches to documentation and evaluation, to establish what types of facilities and support is available and to assess opinions on the future importance of QC. DESIGN: Cross-sectional survey using a standardized questionnaire and supplementary telephone interviews. SETTING: All 23 German regional Associations of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians (ASHIP) were surveyed. RESULTS: The total number of QC in ambulatory care in Germany increased rapidly from 16 in 1993 to 1633 in June 1996, with about 17% (range 1.0-52.1%) of all practicing physicians (112 158) currently involved. Throughout Germany, 2403 moderators were trained in 168 training courses by the qualifying date. Follow-up meetings were held or being planned in 20 ASHIP, with approximately 39% (23-95%) of the moderators participating. Systematic documentation of QC work was undertaken or planned in all 23 ASHIIP, and 10 ASHIP carried out comparative evaluation, with at least five others planning to start it. The ASHIP promoted the work of QC by providing organizational (22) or financial (20) support, materials (20) or mediation of resource persons (16). Eleven ASHIP received grants from drug companies. ASHIP rated the future importance of QC as increasing (18) or stable (four), but in no case as decreasing. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS: The quantitative growth of QC in Germany is encouraging, but the extent of support and evaluation appears insufficient. Increased methodological support and facilitation, follow-up meetings on a more regular basis, improved documentation and evaluation of individual QC, and problem oriented evaluation of their impact on health care are essential for further successful development. Principles, problems and solutions discussed may be relevant for similar QI activities in other countries.  (+info)

Melanoma cells present a MAGE-3 epitope to CD4(+) cytotoxic T cells in association with histocompatibility leukocyte antigen DR11. (6/5164)

In this study we used TEPITOPE, a new epitope prediction software, to identify sequence segments on the MAGE-3 protein with promiscuous binding to histocompatibility leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DR molecules. Synthetic peptides corresponding to the identified sequences were synthesized and used to propagate CD4(+) T cells from the blood of a healthy donor. CD4(+) T cells strongly recognized MAGE-3281-295 and, to a lesser extent, MAGE-3141-155 and MAGE-3146-160. Moreover, CD4(+) T cells proliferated in the presence of recombinant MAGE-3 after processing and presentation by autologous antigen presenting cells, demonstrating that the MAGE-3 epitopes recognized are naturally processed. CD4(+) T cells, mostly of the T helper 1 type, showed specific lytic activity against HLA-DR11/MAGE-3-positive melanoma cells. Cold target inhibition experiments demonstrated indeed that the CD4(+) T cells recognized MAGE-3281-295 in association with HLA-DR11 on melanoma cells. This is the first evidence that a tumor-specific shared antigen forms CD4(+) T cell epitopes. Furthermore, we validated the use of algorithms for the prediction of promiscuous CD4(+) T cell epitopes, thus opening the possibility of wide application to other tumor-associated antigens. These results have direct implications for cancer immunotherapy in the design of peptide-based vaccines with tumor-specific CD4(+) T cell epitopes.  (+info)

The present state and future prospects of occupational health in Bangladesh. (7/5164)

Bangladesh is a relatively young and developing country. At the present time, like in most developing countries, a clear demarcation between occupational health care and general medical care is difficult to be recognized in Bangladesh. Occupational health is a fairly new field, as the country is undergoing industrialization and occupational health activities are operated by several ministries, such as Labour, Health, Industry and Transport. Legal foundations of the occupational health-care system based on British India and Pakistani era, were adopted and amended by the Government of Bangladesh after the liberation of the country in 1971. Most of the Labour laws have been rectified by the Government of Bangladesh according to the ILO Conventions. Reconsideration of the occupational health service system avoiding duplication for the 'occupational health' component in several ministries might be helpful to achieve the successful provision of an occupational health service in the developing Bangladesh.  (+info)

KRAS mutations predict progression of preneoplastic gastric lesions. (8/5164)

Eight hundred sixty-three subjects with atrophic gastritis were recruited to participate in an ongoing chemoprevention trial in Narino, Colombia. The participants were randomly assigned to intervention therapies, which included treatment to eradicate Helicobacter pylori infection followed by daily dietary supplementation with antioxidant micronutrients in a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial design. A series of biopsies of gastric mucosa were obtained according to a specified protocol from designated locations in the stomach for each participant at baseline (before intervention therapy) and at year three. A systematic sample of 160 participants was selected from each of the eight treatment combinations. DNA was isolated from each of these biopsies (n = 320), and the first exon of KRAS was amplified using PCR. Mutations in the KRAS gene were detected using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis and confirmed by sequence analysis. Of all baseline biopsies, 14.4% (23 of 160) contained KRAS mutations. Among those participants with atrophic gastritis without metaplasia, 19.4% (6 of 25) contained KRAS mutations, indicating that mutation of this important gene is likely an early event in the etiology of gastric carcinoma. An important association was found between the presence of KRAS mutations in baseline biopsies and the progression of preneoplastic lesions. Only 14.6% (20 of 137) of participants without baseline KRAS mutations progressed from atrophic gastritis to intestinal metaplasia or from small intestinal metaplasia to colonic metaplasia; however, 39.1% (9 of 23) with baseline KRAS mutations progressed to a more advanced lesion after 3 years [univariate odds ratio (OR), 3.76 (P = 0.05); multivariate OR adjusted for treatment, 3.74 (P = 0.04)]. In addition, the specificity of the KRAS mutation predicted progression. For those participants with G-->T transversions at position 1 of codon 12 (GGT-->TGT), 19.4% (5 of 17) progressed (univariate OR, 2.4); however, 60.0% (3 of 5) of participants with G-->A transitions at position 1 of codon 12 (GGT-->AGT) progressed (univariate OR, 8.7; P = 0.004 using chi2 test).  (+info)

Where do we go to dream? Its a question I asked myself as I heard the news about the FDA cracking down on 23andMe, a service that dared to dream outside of our regulatory systems confines. As we travel down new and unexplored paths, where do we go to move away from the understandably conservative thinking of our industry and think about biotechnologies that will, as Astro Teller from Google X labs says, make a 10x improvement to our world? I grew up reading mind-expanding sci-fi from Asimov, Sagan, Bear, Heinlein, Egan, Stross, and many others, and yet I couldnt find a list for those of us who wanted to dive deeper into the oddities and possible futures of the technology of life. So after a discussion with Kyle Taylor, the head scientist for Glowing Plants, in which we discussed one future possibility of engineering crops to grow on the surface of oceans to feed the hungry billions of the world, I thought it would be worth reaching out across the Web to compile a list of other future possible ...
the ABS uses the cohort-component method for producing population projections of Australia, the states, territories, capital cities and balances of state. This method begins with a base population for each sex by single year of age and advances it year by year, for each year in the projection period, by applying assumptions regarding future fertility, mortality and migration. The assumptions are based on demographic trends over the past decade and longer, both in Australia and overseas. The projections are not predictions or forecasts, but are simply illustrations of the change in population which would occur if the assumptions were to prevail over the projection period. A number of projections are produced by the ABS to show a range of possible future outcomes. The base year for these projections is 2004. ...

Its a very technical area, both as regards the underlying maths and the physical implementation, and I dont intend going far into that. Many groups around the world, both in industry and academia, are actively working on this, hoping to crack both theory and practice. So whats the deal? Why all the effort?. Conventional computers, of the kind we are familiar with, operate essentially in a linear sequential way. Now, there are ways to fudge this and give a semblance of parallel working. Even on a domestic machine you can run lots of programs at the same time, but at the level of a single computing core you are still performing one thing at a time, and some clever scheduling shares resources between several in-progress tasks. A bigger computer will wire up multiple processors and have vastly more elaborate scheduling, to make the most efficient use of what its got. But at the end of the day, present-day logic circuits do one thing at a time.. This puts some tasks out of reach. For example, the ...

This is not a CMC forecast. Its data form the european forecast model ECMWF. It provides a cloud cover forecast. Its here for comparison with the CMC cloud cover forecast. The ECMWF model covers a larger area and forecasts further into the future. New data becomes available around 17:00 and 05:00 local time. Which is different than when the CMC forecasts update. This isnt an astronomy-specific forecast. So like many civil forecasts clear sky might still mean some cirrus. Accuracy Summary: The ECMWF forecast is more accurate than the CMC cloud forecast when predicting mostly clear, but less accurate when predicting mostly cloudy. But ECMWF forecasts out for 72 hours instead of 44 for CMC. The far future ECMWF cloud forecasts are still usable. Accuracy details: Averaged over North America for the last 30 days: when the forecast is predicting less than 12 hours into the future, mostly-clear forecasts (cloud,25%) have been right 85% of the time. Mostly-cloudy forecasts (cloud,75%) have been ...

Shani et al. (2015) are presumably the first authors to draw a direct comparison between regret connected to a past miss and regret related to a future miss. They showed that a possible future regret could influence peoples decision-making more than regret caused by a past miss. We tried to shed further light on these findings by testing the strength of their findings in a separate evaluation and different time variables. By presenting to the participant two sequential scenarios with only one discount in the first scenario and two discounts in the second, we were able to collect data for a separate evaluation and a joint evaluation with different orders of the missed opportunities. Thus, we could also evaluate to what extent they changed their minds when introducing a future regret as new information.. In the separate evaluation, we find that people feel more regret and responsibility for a past miss than for a future miss. This remains contrary to the findings of the study to which we are ...
1. The current iteration of MarshalPlan -- MarshalPlan 5.5 -- is not a prototype of a working application suitable for real-time and real-world use. Far from it! However, MarshalPlan 5.5 goes beyond just scratchings (text) that explain how an evidence marshaling application might work. Even so, it is not far from the truth to say that MarshalPlan is mainly an elaborate visual illustration of some of the directions that development of software for marshaling evidence in legal settings should take. But, but ... MarshalPlan 5.5 is a bit more than an illustration of possible future directions for research and development. MarshalPlan as it now stands is useful for pedagogical (i.e., teaching) purposes. Moreover, MarshalPlan is creeping ever closer to being something akin to a genuine software prototype suitable for real-world and real-time use ...
Over the past few decades, numerous forecasting methods have been proposed in the field of epidemic forecasting. Such methods can be classified into different categories such as deterministic vs. probabilistic, comparative methods vs. generative methods, and so on. In some of the more popular comparative methods, researchers compare observed epidemiological data from the early stages of an outbreak with the output of proposed models to forecast the future trend and prevalence of the pandemic. A significant problem in this area is the lack of standard well-defined evaluation measures to select the best algorithm among different ones, as well as for selecting the best possible configuration for a particular algorithm. In this paper we present an evaluation framework which allows for combining different features, error measures, and ranking schema to evaluate forecasts. We describe the various epidemic features (Epi-features) included to characterize the output of forecasting methods and provide suitable
If a composite is modeled as a randomly inhomogeneous medium, an overall modulus operator relates the ensemble average of the stress to that of the strain. This paper reviews methods for estimating the overall modulus operator when only a limited amount of statistical information on the composite is available. The most securely based estimates come from bounds on the energy. Such bounds induce bounds on the components of the overall modulus operator and have a precise status, independent of the pointwise quality of the approximating fields from which they are derived. Other approximations are also outlined, however; these include perturbation series, estimates obtained from making ad hoc closure assumptions, and self-consistent estimates. The paper concludes with a discussion of possible future developments.. ...
The working group reviewed its current status. It has exceeded its chartered time limit. It has promised to have all drafts on its charter finished and submitted to the IESG by 15 April 1996. The working group will not be allowed to address any new work until these topics are finished. The working group also discussed and quickly dealt with a number of drafts (other than IXFR, Notify, and DynUpdate). See the minutes for additional information. The working group also had a lengthy discussion on issues pertaining to the interactions of DNS and DHCP. A brief discussion was also held on possible future work items, with the proviso that the current work items MUST be finished before any new DNS work is chartered ...

Note that this charter does not mandate which extensions to SPARQL the Working Group will specify. The first task of the group, documented as its first deliverable (see the section on Milestones below) is to produce a final and prioritized list of extensions that the group will indeed handle. Other extensions may be documented to be proposed for a possible future Working Group working on new releases of SPARQL.. The group will also take into consideration the errors on the documents reported by the community since the publication of of the SPARQL documents in January 2008, and stored in the public archives of the relevant mailing list.. Backwards compatibility with the current version of SPARQL is of great importance. All queries, that are valid in the January 2008 version of SPARQL, should remain valid in the new version and should produce identical results. For each new feature, if there is doubt or a perceived problem with respect to this, the guideline should be to not include the feature in ...
We believe these additional NAS conditions are significant not only because they allow for the very possibility of reproductive embryo editing in the future, but also because they offer guidance now for scientists pursuing in vitro embryo editing research aimed at possible future reproductive use. Conditions (1) and (2), for instance, should motivate researchers to deliberate carefully about which genetic diseases to target in their in vitro embryo editing studies. Researchers investigating the technical feasibility of reproductive embryo editing must first select a specific disease and then stick with it for the long haul. They cannot jump from one disease to another and still hope to have all the preclinical safety, efficacy, and proof-of-concept data necessary for the regulatory approval of any particular intervention. For example, if the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA; Rockville, MD) ever allows germline editing trials, it is likely to do so for a very specific guide RNA sequence on a ...
Yes, of course academic freedom does not protect sexual harassment - any more than it protects pedagogy that lacks any legitimate educational basis (which was the earlier version of the administrations concerns about the lecture) or the behavior for which Sandusky was convicted. (I offer no comment here on whether Adlers class exercise, details of which are somewhat sketchy, rises to the level of a hostile work/learning environment.) The issue is how to regulate the risk of a hostile learning environment: ex post, through investigations and, as appropriate, subsequent proceedings that bear at least the hallmarks of an adversarial process and due process - or ex ante, by a group that tends to speculate about (rather than rely on data to assess) possible future harms and benefits, that has stronger incentives to avoid Type II than Type I errors, that operate with virtually no transparency and no representation for the teacher during the decision-making process or for the students at all, and ...
GEORGE CHURCH: Weve heard a little bit about the ancient past of biology, and possible futures, and Id like to frame what Im talking about in terms of four subjects that elaborate on that. In terms of past and future, what have we learned from the past, how does that help us design the future, what would we like it to do in the future, how do we know what we should be doing? This sounds like a moral or ethical issue, but its actually a very practical one too.. One of the things weve learned from the past is that diversity and dispersion are good. How do we inject that into a technological context? That brings the second topic, which is, if were going to do something, if we have some idea what direction we want to go in, what sort of useful constructions we would like to make, say with biology, what would those useful constructs be? By useful we might mean that the benefits outweigh the costs - and the risks. Not simply costs, you have to have risks, and humans as a species have trouble ...
With the all but inevitable advent of a workable Time Machine upon us, it would behoove us all to take some preparations for our foray into the heretofore unknowable Future. The Past, of course, we know about, and therefore it holds no interest. As one who has spent a great deal of time investigating the might-bes and may-happens of many possible Futures, I feel responsible to impart the fruits of my investigations to the rest of you. When you find yourself in the Future, please reach into your pocket and quickly study this list (but not for so long as to attract unwanted attention):. 1) Beware when crossing the street. The Contrivances of our Descendants will certainly be very fast-moving and, being harried by their faster pace of life, the Drivers of Tomorrow may not be on the look-out for us, Secret Visitors from the Past.. 2) Follow the crowds and attempt to blend in until you are properly oriented. Rules for walking in the Cities of Tomorrow may be far stricter, and the subsequent penalties ...
Dec 12, 2011 In a recent interview to Italian media, Reinhard Mieck, CEO of Labelux Group said his company is open to possible future acquisitions, especially companies with a strong business growth potential. Labelux Group is owned by German giant Benckiser, a family business, which also owns second largest fragrances producer COTY.. Labelux was set up early 2008, the first acquisition being British based Solange, followed by Bally and Derek Lam, later the same year, then Zagliani in 2009 and recently, this year, Belstaff and Jimmy Choo.. The groups turnover is now estimated at over 1 billion euros, however, in size, much smaller than other luxury groups such as PPR or Richemont. MIeck insists his company does not have a group philosophy and is not looking to copy the model of other groups. To illustrate, he said While PPR and LVMH feel as more French, we are much more international. We have headquarters in Milan and New York, and I am a German, based in London.. Of all companies within ...
People - including my mother - has always been very keen to point of the health benefits of not smoking but what those people always fail to understand is that… if it didnt matter back when I started smoking - knowing full well how dangerous it is - why would it matter now? The answer of course is that it doesnt. Unless theres some immediate health problem, that is fucking my life right now, Im not going to care about some possible health problem, in a possible future. Remember what I said about how we all like to think that were special. I too, would like to think that Im special. Even though I know - for a fact - that Im statistically unlikely to be special. Sadly, thats just how statistics work ...
Title: S-Nitrosothiols as Nitric Oxide-Donors: Chemistry, Biology and Possible Future Therapeutic Applications. VOLUME: 11 ISSUE: 20. Author(s):A. Ferro. Affiliation:Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Kings College London, St. Thomas Hospital, Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7EH, UK.. Keywords:nitric oxide, nitric oxide donors, s-nitrosothiols, therapeutics. Abstract: In recent years, the gaseous molecule nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to be involved in many important biological events. S-Nitrosothiols are biological substances derived endogenously from NO, and are found in a variety of tissues exhibiting NO-mimetic activity. Fundamental studies on the chemical aspects of S-nitrosothiols have become an integral part of NO research, with a view to further understanding the numerous biological functions both of NO and of S-nitrosothiols themselves. It has often been suggested that Snitrosothiols represent a means either for the storage or transport of NO, although the evidence for this is ...
The two basic weaknesses of the local government structure are the number and variety of special-purpose authorities and the excessive number of territorial authorities. The special-purpose authorities in general are subject to a considerable degree of direction by the Central Government. Moreover, they exercise functions which in some instances at least might otherwise be exercised by territorial authorities, especially if the territorial structure was strengthened by amalgamation of smaller and weaker units. The excessive number of territorial authorities means that some of them are too small and consequently have inadequate resources, a fact which limits their ability to perform satisfactorily the functions demanded by a rapidly growing community and expanding economy, at least without substantial financial assistance by the Central Government. This assistance once again tends to increase the extent of direction by Central Government.. The fragmented and heterogeneous character of the local ...

N2 - In the last decades of the 20th century, infectious diseases have re-emerged as a significant public health problem in the developed world. However, the available anti-infective armamentarium has proven to be alarmingly insufficient to combat many of the microbes that cause these diseases, such as drug resistant microbes, microbes for which therapy is not available or ineffective because of underlying host immune impairment, and microbes that only cause disease in the setting of impaired immunity but are not pathogens in normal individuals. Hence, there is an urgent need for new approaches to the treatment of infectious diseases that can increase the efficacy of anti-infective therapy and bolster the immune response ...

Most population projections are actually forecasts. Population parameters are meant to estimate the present characteristics of a population and to depict plausible assumptions of future demographic trends. Forecasting, however, should not constitute the exclusive use of population projections. The cohort-component model used in most population projections is first of all a model of population dynamics linking demographic processes and changes in population characteristics. The three essays presented here illustrate how a population projection model can be used to address issues in demographic research besides forecasting.^ The first essay uses counter-factual simulations, which are pure projections to the extent they are thought experiments, simply developing the implications of assumptions without reference to the actual course of population. Specifically, world population is projected from 1950 to 2000 with fertility and mortality rates constant at their mid-century levels. By difference with

Substantial changes in the prevalence of the principal kidney and bladder cancer risk factors, smoking (both cancers) and body fatness (kidney cancer), have occurred but the contemporary cancer burden attributable to these factors has not been evaluated. We quantified the kidney and bladder cancer burden attributable to individual and joint exposures and assessed whether these burdens differ between population subgroups. We linked pooled data from seven Australian cohorts (N = 367,058) to national cancer and death registries and estimated the strength of the associations between exposures and cancer using adjusted proportional hazards models. We estimated exposure prevalence from representative contemporaneous health surveys. We combined these estimates to calculate population attributable fractions (PAFs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs), accounting for competing risk of death, and compared PAFs for population subgroups. During the first 10‐year follow‐up, 550 kidney and 530 bladder ...
The Link Between Endometriosis and Cancer. We all know that Endometriosis is a debilitating disease, but many people dont realise the possible future implications of this disease, mixed with our highly inflammatory diets and lifestyle. It is a recipe for an inflammatory disease to actually turn into cancerous states. There have been many studies to date showing the link between inflammation and cancer and endometriosis is definitely an inflammatory disease that needs to be treated and prevented before it could turn to cancer.. We need to really take this disease more seriously than our patients, and many in the medical community probably realise. Prevention is always the key to any disease, and endometriosis could possibly be prevented through proper education, looking into family history and looking into the parental mode of inheritance and knowing more about gene expression and expression of disease states in the body. This is why I think all young girls should be educated about what a proper ...

The capability to produce high field strengths, and thereby obtain a new means for doing fundamental physics, has over the last thirty years taken great leaps forward. Both superconducting cavities as well ultra-intense lasers can now reach field strengths of the order 50 MV/m (stationary) and 1012 V/m (peak value, time-dependent field), respectively. Here we will describe a collection of problems that catches the flavor of the nonlinear quantum vacuum and the possibility to use high field strengths as a low-energy probe of fundamental physics.. ...

An electronic-circuit fabricating system wherein an inspecting machine is provided for each of working machines such as a mask printing machine and an electronic-component mounting machine, to inspect a result of an operation of each working machine, and a monitoring device is arranged to receive information on monitoring-object portions of the working machines and information on the inspected result of the operation, to estimate the present state of each monitoring-object portion on the basis of these kinds of information, to obtain a tendency of change of the present state on the basis of the present state and stored past data, and to monitor the working machines so that the present state does not exceed a predetermined threshold state. When the present state of the monitoring-object portion has exceeded the thresholds state, the monitoring device estimates a cause for an abnormality of the working machine on the basis of the information on the
Why dont you investigate what is happening in Florida with Civil Commitment? Men are being deemed eligible for civil commitment trials after serving their time in prison even if the crime they were in for is not sex related but they have a sex offense in their past (some up to 30 yrs prior). Some are sent to trial even though they served their prison time with good behavior (no writeups), got their GEDs, and cleaned up their life. Florida uses the mental health issue and POSSIBLE future offending as an excuse for holding SOs longer. There is NO second chance. The evaluators are paid BY the state and never reccomend for release. They use the Static-99 which is skewed toward past offenses and not the offenders present state of mind.These guys dont even have to have a mental illness diagnosis as long as they fall into the Static-99 criteria because under the Jimmy Ryce Act the state assumes if you were unable to control yourself in the past you will POSSIBLY lose control again in the future. ...
What will it take to improve the quality of instruction in higher education? An important first step is the ability to measure quality. A variety of measurement systems exist, but how informative are they, and how can we bring greater coherence to instructional measurement in higher education? On November 17 -- 18, 2014, the William T. Grant Foundation, the Spencer Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sponsored a convening of experts on education and the learning sciences to address these questions and to guide possible future initiatives by the foundations. The report examines incentive structures in colleges and universities, looks at the goals toward which instructional measurement can be directed, describes past and current research on instructional measurement, and summarizes potential future initiatives.

Downloadable! In 1985, a total of 17 regional cooperatives marketed livestock. These cooperatives were created to provide greater competition, bargaining power, and market access for producers. Growth in direct marketing, bypassing the services of cooperatives, has occurred because the number of buyers has decreased and producers want to improve marketing efficiency or lower explicit costs. Less emphasis on providing convenient markets, more competitive service charges, supplementing buy-sell operations with advisory services to help members manage risk, and increasing coordination are options that might enable cooperatives to continue to meet their original Objectives.

This is not a CMC forecast. Its data form the european forecast model ECMWF. It provides a cloud cover forecast. Its here for comparison with the CMC cloud cover forecast. The ECMWF model covers a larger area and forecasts further into the future. New data becomes available around 17:00 and 05:00 local time. Which is different than when the CMC forecasts update. This isnt an astronomy-specific forecast. So like many civil forecasts clear sky might still mean some cirrus. Accuracy Summary: The ECMWF forecast is more accurate than the CMC cloud forecast when predicting mostly clear, but less accurate when predicting mostly cloudy. But ECMWF forecasts out for 72 hours instead of 44 for CMC. The far future ECMWF cloud forecasts are still usable. Accuracy details: Averaged over North America for the last 30 days: when the forecast is predicting less than 12 hours into the future, mostly-clear forecasts (cloud,25%) have been right 85% of the time. Mostly-cloudy forecasts (cloud,75%) have been ...

Downloadable! Beliefs about future inflation play a major role in determining the rate of inflation, and so it is important for the Monetary Policy Committee to take them into account when making their policy decisions. A number of measures of central expectations for inflation are available, such as surveys of inflation expectations or measures derived from financial markets. But until recently far fewer measures of beliefs about the full distribution of possible future inflation rates have been available. This article describes a new method for producing option-implied probability density functions for future inflation, which can be used as a measure of that distribution, and examines the recent rise in uncertainty about future inflation that they reveal.
