College of the Ozarks is a private, Christian liberal-arts college, with its campus at Point Lookout near Branson and Hollister, Missouri, United States. It is 40 miles south of Springfield on a 1,000-acre campus, overlooking Lake Taneycomo. The college has an enrollment of 1,500, a student-to-faculty ratio of approximately 16:1, over 30 academic majors, and degrees in Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science.The College charges no tuition for full-time students, due to its student work program and donations. The program requires students to work 15 hours a week at an on-campus work station and two 40-hour work weeks during breaks. A summer work program is available to cover room and board costs. The college refers to itself as "Hard Work U.", and places emphasis in character education. Its mission since its establishment in 1906 is "to provide the advantages of a Christian education for youth of both sexes, especially those found worthy, but who are without sufficient means to procure such training."

Bis(tri-n-butylstannyl)acetylene was synthesized and used to create a series of symmetric diarylacetylenes via a one-step Stille coupling protocol with Pd(PPh 3) 4 as the catalyst. In many cases, the product simply crystallized in good yields from the reaction mixture upon cooling after reflux at 100 °C or upon removal of solvent. The diarylacetylenes were studied using UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopies, which showed that naphthyl- and biphenyl-substituted acetylenes had very high solution-state fluorescence quantum yields. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd.

Forensic psychological assessment for targeted violence is a growing area of practice and community need. These threat assessments are particularly challenging on community college campuses given the broad range of students and the limited internal resources. A collaborative model of partnership between a community college and the training clinic of a doctoral program in clinical psychology has been developed and implemented. The model provides needed service to the community college and rich training experiences for doctoral students in psychology. Implementation of similar partnerships in other settings may be limited by the training and experience of doctoral faculty and the openness of behavioral intervention teams to external participants. © 2014 American Psychological Association.

The role of the counterion in the overall structure of the coordination networks formed between 1,2-bis(3′-quinolinyl)ethyne and six silver(I) salts is highlighted. The coordinating ability of the anion dominates the structures which fall into two major categories: (a) Type A, essentially planar one dimensional ribbons formed from salts with non-coordinating anions like tetrafluoroborate and hexafluoroantimonate or the weakly coordinating anion trifluoromethanesulfonate; and (b) Type B, anion bridged duplex, or double-stranded, linear ribbons formed with the coordinating anions trifluoroacetate and pentafluoropropionate as well as nitrate. π-stacking is important in the three dimensional inter-strand packing of both types of coordination polymers. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2011.

The oxidation of lipids by endogenous or environmental reactive oxygen species (ROS) generates a myriad of different lipid oxidation products that have important roles in disease pathology. The lipid oxidation products obtained in these reactions are dependent upon the identity of the reacting ROS. The photoinduced deoxygenation of various aromatic heterocyclic oxides has been suggested to generate ground state atomic oxygen (O[3P]) as an oxidant; however, very little is known about reactions between lipids and O(3P). To identify lipid oxidation products arising from the reaction of lipids with O(3P), photoactivatable precursors of O( 3P) were irradiated in the presence of lysoplasmenylcholine, low-density lipoprotein and RAW 264.7 cells under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. Four different aldehyde products consistent with the oxidation of plasmalogens were observed. The four aldehydes were: tetradecanal, pentadecanal, 2-hexadecenal and hexadecanal. Depending upon the conditions, either pentadecanal or 2-hexadecenal was the major product. Increased amounts of the aldehyde products were observed in aerobic conditions. The photodeoxygenation of dibenzothiophene S-oxide has been suggested to generate ground state atomic oxygen (O[3P]). The reactivity of the putative O(3P) is distinct from other reactive oxygen species (ROS) and little is known about its reactivity with lipids and other biomolecules. In this work, exposure of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) to O(3P) yielded four aldehyde products. The same aldehydes were observed after the oxidation of an isolated plasmalogen by O(3P). © 2013 The American Society of Photobiology.

Objectives: Multiple systematic reviews have evaluated fluorides for caries prevention in children, but a need to review the literature regarding supplemental fluoride use in adults still remains. The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate the research regarding professional and/or supplemental self-applied fluoride for preventing and remineralizing caries in moderate and high caries risk adults. Methods: Utilizing multiple databases, a comprehensive search was undertaken in both foreign and English languages. Studies included were randomized control trials (RCT) or clinical trials conducted in moderate or high caries risk adult populations, evaluating self- or professionally applied fluoride with the outcomes of caries reduction/remineralization. Studies were excluded if they were in situ, in vitro, split mouth design, or with unclear outcomes specific to fluorides. A quality evaluation of the studies used a checklist of critical domains and elements for an RCT. Results: Seventeen studies were included in the systematic review. Findings were categorized into the following groups: sodium fluoride (NaF) and amine/potassium fluoride mouthrinses of varying strengths, NaF gels and pastes, NaF varnish, and stannous fluoride. Quality evaluation scores varied from 50.2 percent to 88.9 percent. Conclusions: The strongest studies demonstrated the following modalities as moderately effective in higher caries risk adults: low strength NaF rinses [relative risk reduction (RRR) for carious lesions: 50-148 percent]; 1.1 percent NaF pastes/gels (RRR for root lesion remineralization: 35-122 percent); fluoride varnishes [RRR for RC remineralization: 63 percent; RRR for decrease in decayed, missing, and filled surfaces: 50 percent]. Evidence regarding 1.1 percent NaF and 5 percent NaF varnishes related primarily to root caries and older adults. © 2011 American Association of Public Health Dentistry.
