“The Living Water New Testament”: a witness to the Holy Bible, in a straightforward and easy to follow translation. “The Living Water New Testament” is the creation of published author, Roy Mayfield. Roy has been involved in Bible translation for over 30 years in the Philippines as the translator of a tribal language New Testament, and as a translation consultant for many other translation projects. His other background credentials for this publication include a BA in Biblical literature from Biola University, graduate studies in linguistics at the University of North Dakota and Oklahoma under the auspices of the Summer Institute of Linguistics, and at Indiana University. David E. Carnahan from Family Academy believes that "Having read and studied Scripture from numerous translations over the years, I am delighted with Roy’s attention to the details of the original text and his ability to convey those details in words and sentence structures that I readily understand in my culture and life today. I am excited for our children and grandchildren to have 'The Living Water New Testament' available to them". Dr. Christian Overman, Director of Worldview Matters raves "The skills Roy honed as a Wycliffe Bible Translator have been put to good use in fulfilling his own longing for a more readable English translation. I can personally attest that he has succeeded in reaching his goal. I started reading Roy’s translation about a year ago, and it is indeed ‘clear and flowing.’ I must tell you, it is my favorite version of the New Testament. I recommend it without reservation". Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Roy Mayfield’s new book guides Christians through the Scriptures in a beautiful, easy-to-understand manner. “The Living Water New Testament” is a new style translation of the New Testament scriptures taking advantage of more recent studies in the fields of linguistics, communication, translation, and information theory. In this translation the reader will discover an enjoyable naturalness of expression without colloquialisms, as well as greater accuracy in communicating the information intended in the original manuscripts. The most immediate and noticeable characteristic of this translation is, as the name indicates, it flows with the smoothness of a living stream.

For point-to-point direct delivery over the transportation network, timely delivery of commodity and reduction of total fuel cost are both important objectives to consider. Since fuel prices can vary significantly over a broad region, often there is a tradeoff between fuel cost and travel time. A short path may not be economical in terms of fuel cost while routing through regions with lower fuel prices may take more time. In this paper, we consider multi-objective constrained vehicle refueling planning in two settings: (i) minimizing the fuel cost given an upper bound on travel time or (ii) minimizing travel time given an upper bound on the fuel cost. We prove that the computational task is NP-Complete even when the fuel price is fixed or when the amount of fuel consumption and the travel time are linearly dependent. We then show fully polynomial-time approximation schemes for refueling planning in these two situations. © 2015 IEEE.

Sharing common resources in a distributed multi-agent environment requires coordination to avoid faulty system states. The statuses of resources such as personnel, equipments, and environmental factors at a point in time determine the system state at that time. When an agent takes an action at any time point within a scheduled time interval, it becomes a state-transition event occurring at that time. For each event, the underlying state transition relation can be compactly encoded as causal rules, which describe how statuses of resources and environmental factors may change in different ways based on preconditions before the event occurs. The central coordinator needs to check in advance whether any of the possible event sequences consistent with a proposed schedule may end in faulty system states. This fault detection task is NP-complete even for a polynomial-size state space in general. In this paper, we investigate the computational complexity of the fault detection task when agents fairly constrain the maximal length of time intervals. We develop a decomposition algorithm to divide the fault detection task over all events into subtasks involving subsets of the events with overlapping time intervals. For each subtask, only a subspace with reduced dimensionality is involved instead of the whole original state space. When the maximal length of time intervals is constrained below a fair threshold, we prove that with probability approaching one as the size of the problem instance grows the algorithm can accomplish the fault detection task in polynomial time even if the original underlying state space is exponential in size. © 2011 IEEE.

In this brief response to Belzen's proposal that the psychology of religion undertakes a cultural approach to its subject matter, I suggest that (1) the psychology of religion is not as a-cultural as suggested by Belzen and (2) a cultural approach has both practical and theoretical liabilities, including the lack of coherence and the inability to identify universals. I then offer a friendly amendment to Belzen's approach, suggesting from a Kuhnian perspective that he presents a cultural approach more in terms of rapprochement with the existing experimental paradigm. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.

Background Critical care nurses providing care for adults at the end of life may encounter moral distress when they cannot do what they believe is ethically correct. Psychological empowerment can decrease moral distress among critical care nurses. Objectives To describe the relationships between moral distress, psychological empowerment, and demographics in critical care nurses caring for patients at the end of life. Method A total of 277 critical care nurses were surveyed via the Moral Distress Scale and the Psychological Empowerment Instrument. Responses were scored on a Likert scale of 1 to 7. Results Moral distress intensity was high (mean 5.34, SD 1.32) and positively correlated with age (r = 0.179, P = .01). Moral distress frequency was moderate (mean 2.51, SD 0.87) and negatively correlated with nurses' collaboration in end-of-life patient care conferences (r = -0.191, P = .007). Psychological empowerment scores (mean 5.31, SD 1.00) were high and positively correlated with age (r = 0.139, P = .03), years of experience (r = 0.165, P = .01), collaboration in end-of-life-care conferences (r = 0.163, P =.01), and end-of-life-care education (r = 0.221, P = .001) and were negatively correlated with moral distress frequency (r = -0.194, P = .01). Multiple regression analysis revealed that empowerment was a significant predictor of moral distress frequency (β = .222, P < .01). Conclusion The significant negative correlation between psychological empowerment and frequency of moral distress in these nurses indicated that nurses with higher perceived empowerment experience moral distress less often. This finding is of particular interest as interventions to decrease moral distress are sought.© 2013 American Association of Critical-Care Nurses.
