1 The Effect of Blood Perception on Decision-Making in the Leech Introduction There are many factors that influence the behavioral response of an animal to a given stimulus. In the medicinal leech, Hirudo medicinalis, chemical stimuli such as blood are known to increase locomotor activity - swimming and crawling. Recently, the Brodfuehrer lab demonstrated that the perception of artificial blood in the leeches environment changes their behavioral responses elicited by electrical stimulation of the body wall. After foraging for artificial blood, the number of times that body wall stimulation leads to swimming significantly increases compared to control experiments. Here, we extend these studies to test whether artificial blood affects the ability of peripheral nerve stimulation to initiate swimming in a mouth-isolated cord preparation. Materials and Methods Leeches were dissected in cold saline, and a preparation consisting of the isolated ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Serotonin transporter (5-HTTLPR) genotype and childhood trauma are associated with individual differences in decision making. AU - Stoltenberg, Scott F.. AU - Lehmann, Melissa K..

N2 - The factors that influence individual differences in decision making are not yet fully characterized, but convergent evidence is accumulating that implicates serotonin (5-HT) system function. Therefore, both genes and environments that influence serotonin function are good candidates for association with risky decision making. In the present study we examined associations between common polymorphisms in the serotonin transporter gene (SLC6A4; 5-HTTLPR and rs25531), the experience of childhood trauma and ...

Downloadable (with restrictions)! In problems to do with managing water resources multiple decision makers are involved, each acting in their own right and using different value systems. In the literature on management science, several procedures are proposed in order to establish a collective preference based on the aggregation of different individual preferences. However, the well-known methods that focus on a single winner have some inconveniences that should be addressed. This paper is focused on a group decision making procedure based on the analysis of individual rankings with the aim of choosing an appropriate alternative for a water resources problem. This alternative is found to be the best compromise from the points of view of all actors involved in the decision problem. The structure of the method is set out as is its application to the water resources problem. A ...

This paper describes a new multi-player computer game, Colored Trails (CT), which may be played by people, computers and heterogeneous groups. CT was designed to enable investigation of properties of decision-making strategies in multi-agent situations of varying complexity. The paper presents the results of an initial series of experiments of CT games in which agents choices affected not only their own outcomes but also the outcomes of other agents. It compares the behavior of people with that of computer agents deploying a variety of decision-making strategies. The results align with behavioral economics studies in showing that people cooperate when they play and that factors of social dependency influence their levels of cooperation. Preliminary results indicate that people design agents to play strategies closer to game-theory predictions, yielding lower utility. ...
OBJECTIVE: The goal of this study was 2-fold, first, to compare decision making in behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) patients and healthy adults using the Balloon Analog Risk Task (BART), and, second, to identify the regions of gray matter atrophy associated with bvFTD patients BART performance. BACKGROUND: Stimulus-reinforcement learning is required to evaluate the results of previously chosen actions to improve future decisions. Although there is a well established literature suggesting altered decision making in FTD patients and data from lesion studies suggest orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) involvement in decision making, there is very little research looking at the brain correlates of decision ...
By studying bacteria which are living under stressful conditions, scientists have gained fresh insights into the manner of human decision making, especially crucial ones.
The phenomenon of loss aversion (the tendency for losses to have a greater impact than comparable gains) has long been observed in daily life. Neurocognitive studies and brain imaging studies have shed light on the correlation between the phenomenon of loss aversion and the brain region of the prefrontal cortex. Recent brain stimulation studies using bilateral transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct current stimulation have obtained various results showing the causal relationship between brain regions and decision making. With the goal of studying whether unilateral stimulation can change participants risky decision making in the frames of gains and losses, we applied different polarities of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) over the regions of the right or left prefrontal cortex. We also designed a risk measurement table (Multiple Price List) ...

Deputy and assistant registrars in UTM Skudai were found to have implemented directive ...
Patient decision aids are increasingly regarded as important components of clinical practice that enable shared decision making (SDM) and evidence based patient choice. Despite broad acceptance of their value, there remains little evidence of their successful implementation in primary care settings. Health care practitioners from five general practice surgeries in northern England participated in focus group sessions around the themes of patient decision aids, patient and practitioner preferences and SDM. Participants included general practitioners (n = 19), practice nurses (n = 5) and auxiliary staff (n = 3). Transcripts were analysed using a framework approach. We report a) practitioners discussion of the current impetus towards sharing decisions and their perspectives on barriers to SDM, and b) the implementation of patient ...

End-of-Life Decision Making is an issue wrapped in controversy and contradictions for Canadians. Most people in this country want to die at home, but few do; most believe planning for dying is important and should be started while people are healthy, but almost no one does it. And while most Canadians support the decriminalization of voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide, both remain illegal under the Criminal Code of Canada. Assisted dying is a critically important public policy issue, where opinion, practice and the law seem out of alignment. The Royal Society of Canada, a national organization of distinguished scholars, artists and scientists, believes the time has come for a national debate on end-of-life decision making. It commissioned us, a panel of six Canadian and international experts on bioethics, clinical medicine, health law and policy, and philosophy, to ...
© The Author 2016. Background: The effects of acute tryptophan depletion on human decision-making suggest that serotonin modulates the processing of rewards and punishments. However, few studies have assessed which of the many types of serotonin receptors are responsible. Methods: Using a within-subject, double-blind, sham-controlled design in 26 subjects, we examined whether individual differences in serotonin system gene transcription, measured in peripheral blood, predicted the effect of acute tryptophan depletion on decision-making. Participants performed a task in which they chose between successive pairs of fixed, lower-stakes (control) and variable, higher-stakes (experimental) gambles, each involving wins or losses. In 21 participants, mRNA from 9 serotonin system genes was measured in whole blood prior to acute tryptophan depletion: 5-HT1B, 5-HT1F, ...

Although the legends of Arthur have been popular throughout Europe from the middle ages onwards, the earliest references to Arthur are to be found in Welsh literature, starting with the Welsh-Latin Historia Brittonum which dates from the ninth century. By the twelfth century Arthur was a renowned figure wherever Welsh and its sister languages were spoken. O.J. Padel proves an overall survey of medieval Welsh literary references to Arthur and emphasizes the importance of understanding the character and purpose of the texts in which allusions to Arthur occur. Texts from different genres are considered together and shed new light on the use which different authors make of the multifaceted figure of Arthur, from the folk legend associated with magic and animals to the literary hero, soldier and defender of country and faith. Other figures associated with Arthur, such as Cai, Bedwyr and Gwenhwyfar, are also discussed. Arthur in Medieval Welsh Literature is an important and revealing

p,In the last two decades, cross-border gas pipelines have become an integral part of discourse on Indias energy security. Successive reports from the government and the private sector have envisaged an important role for cross-border gas pipeline projects in India. After engaging in negotiations for several years, the Indian Government finally joined the Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India (TAPI) gas pipeline over the Iran-Pakistan-India pipeline (IPI) and the Myanmar- Bangladesh-India pipeline (MBI). Several critics of this project have questioned this decision of the Indian Government to join TAPI due to the huge levels of risks involved and the projects commercial unviability. The article is an attempt to understand the decision-making process of the Indian Government on cross-border gas pipeline projects and its rationale for choosing a seemingly riskier project like the TAPI ...

Helminth infections of cattle affect productivity in all classes of stock, and are amongst the most important production-limiting diseases of grazing ruminants. Over the last decade, there has been a shift in focus in the diagnosis of these infections from merely detecting presence/absence of infection towards detecting its impact on production. This has been facilitated by studies observing consistent negative correlations between helminth diagnostic test results and measures of productivity. Veterinarians are increasingly challenged to consider the economic aspects of their work, and the use of these tests should now be integrated in economic evaluation frameworks for improved decision making. In this paper, we review recent insights in the farm-specific economic impact of helminth infections on dairy cattle farms as well as in farmer attitudes and behaviour regarding helminth control. Combining better economic impact assessments of ...

Arthur Reuel Tolkien, the father of J.R.R. Tolkien, was born in Handsworth, Stafford, England, about February of 1857. He was the eldest child of John Benjamin Tolkien and Mary Jane Stowe. Arthur had at least 5 siblings: Mabel (1858), Grace Bindley (1861), Florence Mary (1863), Wilfred Henry, and Laurence George H. Tolkien. Marian Esther (1866) and Mary Tolkien (1870) may also have been sisters of Arthur. Arthurs father John had previously been married, to Jane Holmwood, with whom he had four children: Emily, born 1838, Louisa, born 1840, John Benjamin, born 1845 and Jane, born 1846. Arthur did not follow his father into the traditional Tolkien trade in pianos, which many of his London cousins also followed; instead he became a bank clerk and ended up moving to South Africa, where he was later joined by his fiancée, Mabel Suffield. Arthur and Mabel were married in 1891. Their first son, Ronald, was born on January 3, 1892, and a second son, Hilary Arthur Reuel, was born two years later on ...

Cannabis abuse and dependence are the most prevalent drug use disorders in the United States (Compton et al., 2004), yet little is known about the factors contributing to successful marijuana treatment. Previously, we have shown that cognitive impairments in patients treated for substance disorders are associated with premature treatment dropout. However, little is known about whether such impairments are the result of drug use per se. The objective of this within-subject study is to determine whether decision-making and risk-taking are affected by acute cannabis intoxication. The Balloon Analogue Risk Task (BART; Lejuez et al. 2002) assesses decision making in a context of increasing risk, and the Iowa Gambling Task (IGT; Bechara et al. 1994) tests the ability to balance immediate rewards against long-term negative consequences; both tasks have strong face validity for ...

HealthNewsDigest.com) - BUFFALO, N.Y. - A new study by researchers at the University at Buffalo provides a groundbreaking look at how advance care planning medical orders inform emergency medical service (EMS) providers experiences involving people with intellectual disabilities.. Most states in the U.S. have programs that allow terminally ill patients to document their end-of-life decisions. In New York, the Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment form (MOLST) allows individuals to document what measures health care providers, including EMS providers, should take near the end of a patients life.. Studies suggest that this approach to person-centered advance care planning can alleviate a dying patients pain and suffering, according Deborah Waldrop, a professor in the UB School of Social Work and an expert on end-of-life care. Yet little research on end-of-life decision-making has been done on the ...
ISSUES IN MEDICINE. Ethical decision making in severe paediatric burn victims H Rode; A J W Millar; B Castle; J Lyle The life of a patient is the only life the patient has - can we really make a judgment call on who to treat or not? J Puchula (from his address at the 2008 congress of the European Club for Paediatric Burns, Gdansk). The matter of triaging severe burns so that expensive and potentially futile treatment should not be initiated was discussed in a priority setting process by the Western Cape Health Department, and led us to question the validity of such an approach. The provision of equitable, accessible and appropriate burn care in South Africa faces many problems, particularly for patients with major burns. Approximately 3.2% of South Africas population suffer burns annually, of whom 50% are less than 20 years of age, and burns are the leading cause of unnatural death under the age of 5 (personal communication ...
The career decision process has been much studied using quantitative research methods and in the context of the university student. Little career decision research has been done in the context of the community college and using qualitative research methods. This phenomenological multiple-case study investigated the processes and influences undertaken by ten new community college students within their first three years following high school graduation as they made their career decisions. Findings indicated that these students were influenced primarily by factors such as personal interests and experiences. Parents were shown to have little direct influence on the career decision other than encouragement and support. Participants utilized a variety of decision making styles to ...

What Do We Mean By "Research Evidence"? In the justice system, the term "evidence" is used in a variety of ways. It can refer to items collected at a crime scene, eyewitness accounts, or security camera footage. These types of evidence are referred to as "legal evidence.". For the purposes of the EBDM initiative, however, the term "evidence" is used to describe findings from empirically sound social science research. The initiative refers to the results of this research as "evidence-based policy and practice.". ...

In a case when not all the requirements for the next software product release are known a priori and when new requirements are issued throughout the project, the risk of overscoping by including more functionality than can be implemented increases. In this paper, we report on findings from an empirical interview study about understanding the causes and effects of overscoping in a large-scale industrial set up. Six main causes of overscoping have been identified in this work, complemented by root cause analysis of the causes and concluded by effects of overscoping. The results provide an increased understanding of the scoping activity as a continuous activity and outline risks and issues that can lead to a situation of overscoping.}, author = {Bjarnason, Elizabeth and Wnuk, ...
The intense debate of earlier years between off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB) grafting and conventional coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) has recently given place to a more balanced and targeted approach to surgical coronary revascularisation. Baseline patient characteristics, coronary and aortic pathology and, most importantly, surgeon experience and training are currently the main factors influencing the decision and implementation of OPCAB. In an era where outcomes following CABG are closely monitored and mortality rarely exceeds 3%, the practice of off-pump revascularisation aims at amelioration of morbidity and at achieving equivalent, if not superior, outcomes compared with on-pump CABG. However, a systematic and indepth analysis of the relevant literature highlights an important issue, which is often neglected and could potentially influence decision ...

The concept of rationality is a common thread through the human and social sciences - from political science to philosophy, from economics to sociology, from management science to decision analysis. But what counts as rational action and rational behavior? This book explores decision theory as a theory of rationality. Decision theory is the mathematical theory of choice and for many social scientists it makes the concept of rationality mathematically tractable and scientifically legitimate. Yet rationality is a concept with several dimensions and the theory of rationality has different roles to play. It plays an action-guiding role (prescribing what counts as a rational solution of a given decision problem). It plays a normative role (giving us the tools to pass judgment not just on how a decision problem was solved, but also on how it was ...
International labor migration has become an increasingly common livelihood strategy in rural Cambodia, in some villages becoming a defining and normative part of community life. This dissertation is an ethnographic study of one such rural community, where migration to Thailand has become a primary livelihood strategy over the past decade. Drawing on three years of fieldwork in Chanleas Dai, a commune (khum) in Northwest Cambodia, my research explores the complexities of the migration decision-making process, and the meanings of migration for rural households. This work is motivated by debates within the dialogues of migration and development, most of which seek to understand the potential for migration to promote development by focusing on the impacts of migration. My work departs from previous studies by focusing explicitly on ...
Recently, psychologists studying cognitive processes and personality have increasingly benefitted from the wealth of theory, methodology, and decision making paradigms used in economics and game theory. Similarly, for the economists, personality traits and basic cognitive processes offer a set of coherent explanatory constructs in economic behaviour. Given the debate on preference invariance and behavioural consistency across contexts and domains, the papers in this topic shed light on the existence and effect of stable sets of idiosyncratic features on economic decision-making.

Background: Patients with advanced cancer for whom standard systemic treatment is no longer available may be offered participation in early phase clinical trials. In the decision making process, both medical-technical information and patient values and preferences are important. Since patients report decisional conflict after deciding on participation in these trials, improving the decision making process is essential. We aim to develop and evaluate an Online Value Clarification Tool (OnVaCT) to assist patients in clarifying their values around this end-of-life decision. This improved sharing of values is hypothesized to support medical oncologists in tailoring their information to individual patients needs and, consequently, to support patients in taking ...

Background: Life expectancy (LE) estimation is an important part of both screening and treatment decision-making for potentially curable prostate cancer. Clinicians estimation of patient life expectancy is typically made using population-based life tables and intuition and it is often inaccurate. This study explores methods to improve LE prediction by formally considering patient co-morbid illness status, in addition to age, in the development of a LE prediction tool. Methods: We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort study of patients from the Ontario Cancer Registry who were curative treatment candidates, identified between 1990-1998. We analyzed data on three sub-populations of this cohort, and we used LE estimates from the Ontario Life Tables. Each model utilized Cox proportional hazards analysis, and/or the declining exponential approximation of LE, to estimate the survival experience of potential curative treatment ...
The field of applied sport psychology has recognized the growing consensus that professional autonomy and discretion brings with it the need to train, regulate, and evaluate practice (Evetts, 2001). However, research into how practitioners professional judgment is formed and the decision-making processes involved has not received concurrent attention. This paper illustrates some of the possible outcomes and implications for applied sport psychologists from consideration of Professional Judgment and Decision Making (PJDM) research in other fields such as medicine and teaching and in parallel disciplines such as clinical and counseling psychology. Investigation into the nature of decision content and how the crucial "intention for impact" (Hill, 1992) is formulated carries implications for the assessment, reflective practice, ...

Following the increasing civil and military deployment of unmanned aerial vehicles, an intense public debate on the positive and negative effects of drones has emerged. The ECIS symposium "Mediating morality: Using unmanned aerial systems for decision making in moral situations" focuses on how the use of drones affects decision-making in moral situations. Current research in moral philosophy and moral psychology provides no clear answers regarding the effects that drones have on moral decision making. The aim of the workshop is to bring together stakeholders and researchers in the field of technology, philosophy and psychology to discuss the consequences of using drones. The goal of the symposium is to share insights from theory and practice on technological mediation in moral situations and combine insights ...
This work by Fibbe et al from Hamburg is the latest and best designed of several studies published in the last few years that have shown preoperative oesophageal manometry to be of no value in predicting the occurrence of dysphagia after fundoplication.4-6 Moreover, postoperative dysphagia was not reduced by using a partial wrap instead of a complete wrap in patients with preoperative evidence of impaired peristalsis. Although there is some evidence that supports the appealing concept of tailoring a patients surgery to preoperative physiological findings,1,2,7 the results of Fibbe et al agree with a previous randomised trial6 that found no advantage in using preoperative manometry to guide the choice of wrap.. These observations are directly relevant to clinical practice but other findings reported by Fibbe et al offer additional food for thought and perhaps also point the way for further research. Noting that abnormal oesophageal body motility was unrelated to the presence of oesophagitis or ...

Erik P. Hess, M.D., from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues compared a decision aid with usual care in parents of children at intermediate risk for ciTBI. A total of 172 clinicians caring for 971 children with minor head trauma were randomized to shared decision-making facilitated by the Head CT Choice decision aid or usual care (493 and 478, respectively).. The researchers found that, compared with usual care, parents in the decision aid arm had greater knowledge (mean questions correct, 6.2 versus 5.3), ...
03 April 2013. HELSINKI, Finland-April 3, 2013--New study Navigated transcranial magnetic stimulation for mapping the motor cortex in patients with rolandic brain tumors on the accuracy and usefulness of the NBS System for mapping the motor cortex in patients with rolandic brain tumors. In the article authored by Takahashi S, Vajkoczy P, Picht T. from the Department of Neurosurgery, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany, a systematic search was used to retrieve 11 reports published up to October 2012 in which adult patients were examined with the NBS System prior to surgery. The abstract concluded that, "nTMS correlated well with the gold standard of DES" and that, based on the data obtained in 87 patients in 2 studies, "nTMS results changed the surgical strategy based on anatomical imaging alone in 25.3% of all patients." The authors concluded that " The nTMS technique spatially correlates well with the gold standard of DES. Its functional information benefits surgical ...
Disruption of function of left, but not right, lateral prefrontal cortex (LPFC) with low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) increased choices of immediate rewards over larger delayed rewards. rTMS did not change choices involving only delayed rewards or valuation judgments of immediate and delayed rewards, providing causal evidence for a neural lateral-prefrontal cortex-based self-control mechanism in intertemporal choice ...
l heard the phrase "its the principle of the thing." This phrase reminds us that in everything we do, including the clinical management of patients, there are both precedents and principles to guide our decision making processes. The principle of "doing the right thing" should be utilized in pediatric blood management and in making evidence based transfusion decisions.. Most of us are familiar with, and may well already be using, a Computerized Provider Order Entry (CPOE) system; which incorporates evidenced based practice (EBP) guidelines in an electronic order entry format. This EBP function is crucial in supporting the clinicians decision to transfuse, and how much, if any, blood product is appropriate. Decision support systems can also help in areas such as pediatric blood volume ...
Empirical prescribing of antibiotics to women with symptoms of acute cystitis prior to culture results is common, but subsequent culture results are often negative.

This article introduces an innovative decision making model for adapting evidence-based practice to the specific needs of a department in a dental school. The design encourages suggestions for curricular change directly from the faculty members, while providing a mechanism that allows them to actively participate in the process through the use of evidence-based principles and practice. The nucleus of this model is an Advisory Council comprised of nine full-time departmental faculty members who, when charged, act as independent task force leaders who recruit other faculty members and lead small teams that investigate suggestions for curricular change. Following an accelerated investigative process, recommendations to the Advisory Council are made; if approved, these changes are integrated into the curriculum. The incorporation of an interdisciplinary Advisory Council of key departmental faculty members ...

The diagnosis of breast cancer can be devastating and decisions regarding reconstruction are often seen as a secondary consideration when dealing with so many other painful issues. However, women often feel that breast reconstruction is essential to recovering their self-confidence once the ordeal is over, and for those women there are different options available. Patients may undergo autologous reconstruction at the same time as the initial mastectomy or may choose to wait until after mastectomy and subsequent oncological treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy. A careful discussion with the surgeon is imperative to guide the patient in the decision making process. This often requires multiple consultations with both the doctor and the specialist reconstructive nurse within a multidisciplinary oncological team. Breast reconstruction can be provided by either autologous or ...

Obstacles to the Use of Social Science Analysis in Water Decision-Making, or Wheres the Demand for Social Science Input?. The paper identifies characteristics of both the public decisionmaking process and the methods of social science research that result in social science inputs having little influence on policy decisions. There are cognitive obstacles to the use of social science inputs; decisionmakers have trouble dealing with compound uncertainties that are left from engineering and social analyses; the adversarial climate reduces the receptivity to objective social science inputs. On the other hand, some of the weakness of the demand for social science input is due to the practices and behavior of social scientists themselves. At the cross-disciplinary level are opportunities in ...
This section provides an overview of current thinking on risk assessments in child welfare. Given that child welfare services are primarily geared toward maintaining the safety of children who are at risk of future maltreatment, the literature mostly focuses on the development and use of various strategies for finding those cases with the highest degree of risk. Beginning in the 1980s, there was widespread discussion about how to go about creating tools to achieve this aim. Wald and Woolverton 1990 expertly captures many of the most important elements of these debates and pushed the field to consider both the statistical properties of the tools as well as their potential use. Gambrill and Shlonsky 2000 extends this work as part of a Children and Youth Services Review issue on risk assessment in child welfare, detailing the many errors that can occur in individual decision making, both with and without reliable and valid statistical tools. ...
The use of evidence is critical in guiding decision-making, but evidence from effect studies will be only one of a number of factors that will need to be taken into account in the decision-making processes. Equally important for policymakers will be the use of different types of evidence including implementation essentials and other decision-making principles such as social justice, political, ethical, equity issues, reflecting public attitudes and the level of resources available, rather than be based on health outcomes alone. This paper, aimed to support decision-makers, highlights the importance of commissioning high-quality evaluations, the key aspects to assess levels of evidence, the importance of supporting evidence-based implementation and what to ...

U.S., March 8 -- ClinicalTrials.gov registry received information related to the study (NCT03069742) titled Study of Web-based Decision Aids for Increasing Breast Cancer Chemoprevention in the Primary Care Setting on Feb. 28. Brief Summary: The purpose of this randomized controlled trial (RCT) is to evaluate a decision support website (RealRisks) designed to inform patients about breast cancer prevention options. It is coupled with a physician-centered (BNAV) decision support website as part of clinical workflow in the primary care setting. The investigators hypothesize that improving accuracy of breast cancer risk perception and understanding of the risks and benefits of breast cancer risk lowering drugs, also known as chemoprevention, will increase the uptake of chemoprevention in the primary care setting. Study Start Date: November 2016 Study Type: Interventional Condition: Breast Neoplasm Intervention: ...
An artists impression of Ostrovets Nuclear Power Plant. Source: Belarus AEC.After Fukushima, you might think that nuclear power is a thing of the past. Or that our focus on climate is the only issue of public concern when it comes to the energy sector. Yet the recent Meeting of the Parties to the Espoo Convention, which deals with environmental impact assessments across borders, was hi-jacked by ongoing disputes over reactor construction and lifetime extension. In Minsk, 200 participants representing the 45 states who are members to this UN Convention held heated discussions over problematic cases, such as Hinkley Point C (UK), Ostravets (Belarus) and a number of old Ukrainian reactors going through their lifetime extensions.. This dispute has arisen largely because the rules on who has a say when decisions regarding nuclear operations are made are unclear. Which countries and their citizens should be notified and involved in ...

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) and Lyme borreliosis (LB) are tick-borne diseases (TBDs), and both present an increasing burden worldwide. Vaccination as public health intervention could be the most effective way to reduce this burden. TBE vaccines are available, but vaccines against LB are still in the phase of development. At the European level, TBE vaccines are likely under-administered to effectively prevent the disease. Cost-effectiveness of vaccination is a helpful tool in the decision making process to include novel vaccines in the national vaccination program or to extend current programs, and its role is only increasing. Cost-effectiveness studies on TBE vaccines have been performed in Slovenia, Sweden, Finland and Estonia so far. Cost-effectiveness studies with the novel vaccines against LB are expected to be performed in the near future.. ...
Peoples moods can influence moral judgment. Such influences may arise because moods affect moral emotion, or because moods affect moral thought. The present study provides evidence that, at least in the footbridge dilemma, moods affect moral thought. The results of two experiments are reported in which, after induction of positive, negative, or neutral moods and presentation of the footbridge scenario, participants were asked one of two differentially framed closing questions. In the active frame, participants were asked whether they would be active and push the man, making thoughts about pushing accessible; in the passive frame, they were asked whether they would be passive and not push the man, making thoughts about not pushing accessible. The results show that affective influences on moral judgment depended on participants decision frame. Compared to neutral moods, positive moods induced utilitarian ...
Family Features) For a good portion of Americans, life insurance is a critical component of financial planning. However, in recent months, many seniors have been hit with an unwelcome surprise as several insurers are raising the premiums on their life insurance policies. When a life insurance policy becomes too expensive to maintain due to premium increases, the owner can be faced with some difficult decisions.. Consider this story: A 75 year-old man owned a Universal Life insurance policy with a death benefit of approximately $500,000, which he purchased to provide income for his wife in the event of his death. Unfortunately, a battle with prostate cancer dealt him a financial blow and the low interest rates took a toll on the cash value in his policy. Then came the sucker punch: the life insurance company was raising his premiums to almost twice what he had originally planned.. He was told that he would receive just $1,006 in cash surrender value from the insurance ...
Data and research on agriculture and fisheries including food supply, sustainability, biological resources, and seed, tractor, forest, fruit and vegetable standards.,

Climate change is becoming more evident and, as it increases, will alter the productivity of fisheries and the distribution of fish stocks. From an economic point of view, the changes will have impacts on fisheries and coastal communities in different ways. These expected changes require adaptable and flexible fisheries and aquaculture management policies and governance frameworks. However, the forms of future climate change and the extent of its impact remain uncertain. Fisheries policy makers therefore need to develop strategies and decision-making models in order to adapt to climate change under such uncertainty while taking into account social and economic consequences.

While most work on climate change in the fisheries sector has focused on ...

The results support the TPB in that attitude, subjective norm, and PBC predicted parents intentions (Hypothesis 1). These findings suggest that parents who have more favourable attitudes toward using online information to manage their childs health care, perceive pressure from important referents to engage in this behaviour, and who believe they have higher levels of control regarding their ability to do so, will have stronger intentions to use information from the internet to manage their childs health care. In the prediction of parents behaviour, the TPB was partially supported (Hypothesis 2) as intention, but not PBC, predicted parents use of online information to manage their childs health care. This finding suggests that parents who have stronger intentions to perform the target behaviour are more likely to make decisions to do so.. The finding that PBC did not emerge as a significant predictor of behaviour may be explained by parents lack of accuracy in judging how ...
