Crown College is one of the residential colleges that makes up the University of California, Santa Cruz, USA.Despite its thematic grounding in natural science and technology, like at all UCSC colleges, Crown students major in subjects across all disciplines. Crown has a favorable reputation for academically-focused students, possibly due to both its reputation as a science college and its secluded location on the Santa Cruz campus. Because of its strong academic roots, Crown College is regarded as one of the quieter colleges on the campus. It is very close to Upper Campus, frequented by hikers and mountain bikers, and near where drum circles take place during full moons.Residents of the college are informally known as "Crownies."

When geriatric patients with maxillofacial defects are handled, the clinician must be confident of addressing and managing the psy-chology of these patients. It is also required that the clinician must understand and be sensitive to the medical and financial states of geriatric patients. The loss of an eye has a far-reaching impact on an individual's psychology and an immediate replacement is neces-sary to promote the physical and psychological healing of the pa-tient and to improve his/her social acceptance. Special approaches and treatment goals are considered while treating geriatric patients with ocular defects and special consideration is given to the ap-pointment length, the number of appointments and their medical and financial statuses. This article presents the prosthetic rehabili-tation of a geriatric patient with an ocular defect, with a customized stock ocular prosthesis, by using a minimal intervention geriatric approach.

Introduction: Provisional restorations serve a key role as a functional and esthetic try-in for the design of the final prosthesis. During selection of materials for this restoration, clinicians must consider physical properties, ease of handling, cost and patient satisfaction and approval. Aim: To evaluate and compare the flexural strength of provisional crown and bridge materials available commercially. Materials and Methods: This in-vitro study was done to compare the flexural strength of six temporary crown and bridge materials available commercially at 24 hours, 8 days and after repair. Three poly methyl methacrylate based materials (DPI, SC10 and Trulon) and three bis-acrylic based composite resins (Protemp, Cooltemp and Luxatemp) were selected. A total of 72 specimens of dimensions 64mm×10mm×2.5mm were prepared from these materials (12 from each material) and divided into two groups (n=36). Specimens were stored in artificial saliva and were fractured after 24 hours and 8 days using Universal Testing Machine. The fractured samples from the 8 days study were then subjected to repair. A uniform space of 2mm and a 450 bevel was maintained for all the repaired samples for better distribution of forces. Flexural strength of these repaired samples was recorded using the same machine. Results were recorded and statistically analysed by one-way Anova and Post hoc tests. Result: Results revealed that there was decrease in flexural strength for all the materials tested from 24 hours to 8 days, though flexural strength between poly methyl methacrylate and bis-acrylic resins was similar at 24 hours and 8 days time interval. A substantial decrease was noticed in the strength of bis-acrylic composite resins after repair. Conclusion: From the current study it can be suggested that though there is decrease in flexural strength for all the materials from 24 hours to 8 days, both can be used to fabricate the provisional restorations. However, in the event of a fracture of a bis-acrylic provisional restoration, it may be more advantageous to make a new provisional restoration than to repair the fractured one. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research.

This study explores student achievement, sense of social community, and sense of learning community (Rovai, 2002) in two sections of an online course taught concurrently by the same instructor. One section was delivered in a fully asynchronous format; the other incorporated weekly synchronous lectures using an Adobe Connect environment. Students were randomly assigned to one of the two sections but allowed to change sections (before the semester began) if unwilling or unable to participate in weekly Adobe Connect meetings. Data included grades on course assignments, final course grades, end-of-course evaluations, and responses to the Classroom Community Inventory (Rovai, Wighting & Lucking, 2004). No significant differences were found on measures of academic achievement, student satisfaction, social community, or learning community between the two sections. © 2015 Sloan Consortium.

Aim: To evaluate the color stability and flexural strength of poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and bis-acrylic composite based provisional crown and bridge auto-polymerizing resins exposed to tea, coffee, cola, and food dye. Materials and Methods: Two provisional crown and bridge resins, one DPI self-cure tooth molding powder (PMMA) (Group A), and one Protemp 4 Temporization Material (bis-acrylic composite) (Group B) were used. Disk-shaped specimens for color stability testing (n = 30 for each material) and bar-shaped specimens for flexural strength testing (n = 30 for each material) were fabricated using a metal mold. The specimens were immersed in artificial saliva, artificial saliva + tea, artificial saliva + coffee, artificial saliva + cola, and artificial saliva + food dye solutions and stored in an incubator at 37°C. Color measurements were taken before immersion, and then after 3 and 7 days of immersion. Flexural strength was evaluated after 7 days of immersion. Results: Group A showed significantly higher color stability as compared to Group B, and artificial saliva + coffee solution had the most staining capacity for the resins. Test solutions had no effect on the flexural strength of Group A, but Group B specimens immersed in artificial saliva + cola showed significantly lower flexural strength values as compared to the control group. Conclusion: The findings of the study showed that for materials used in the study, PMMA was more color stable than bis-acrylic composite based resin. Also, material based on PMMA was more resistant to damage from dietary beverages as compared to bis-acrylic composite based provisional crown and bridge resin.

Aim: To assess the prosthetic status and needs among 65–74 years population of Khora Village, Ghaziabad district, Uttar Pradesh. Materials and Methods: The study population consisted of 153 subjects (65–74 years). Out of 153 subjects, 138 elderly individuals (79 males and 59 females) were examined at their homes under standardized conditions. There prosthetic status and needs were recorded according to WHO 1997 methodology. Results: Only 6.52% of study subjects possessed full dentures and 13.76% subject possessed partial denture. At least 9 out of 10 subjects needed some form of prosthetic treatment. Some form of prosthetic treatment needed by male subjects was 89.3% and 94.4% by female subjects was found statistically insignificant (p<0.05). Conclusion: The results illustrated poor prosthetic status and showed extremely high need for treatment in this population. © 2016, Indian Journal of Public Health Research and Development.

The search for a sustainable civilisation - an essential concomitant of dealing with global warming - will be driven, in part, by the 'normalisation' of a low-carbon lifestyle. To date, most research and discussion of this transition have centred on technological fixes and their economic equivalent, 'getting prices right'. Although both approaches seem to point to reduced levels of consumption as a result of more 'efficient' processes and practices, neither really addresses the material and cognitive changes associated with need for drastic reductions in carbon burning. There is a glaring contradiction between the impetus for high rates of economic growth and the major modifications of 'lifestyle' necessitated by environmental crisis. 'Lifestyle' is usually approached as an individual attribute. This disregards the governmentalisation of consumption through advertising and other forms of preference-shaping, which serve to link lifestyle to 'identities'.

Intubation is a routine intervention in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for preterm neonates with respiratory distress, inadequate gag reflex, poor sucking and swallowing. Prolonged intubation in neonates can be done by nasal or oral route. Although naso-tracheal intubation may reduce movement of the tube, it may contribute to airway obstruction, possible hypoxia, and occlusion of the nasal aperture during a crucial period of development further contributing to laboured breathing. Being obligate nasal breathers, oro-tracheal route is the preferred method of intubation in premature infants as oral mucosa is less susceptible to damage than nasal mucosa. Ineffective stabilization of the tubes is a frequent problem often resulting in accidental extubation and displacement of orotracheal and orogastric tube. Hence, these tubes must be stabilized against displacement from tongue and jaw movements to prevent discomfort and subsequent tissue trauma. Complications of prolonged endotracheal intubation include palatal groove formation by pressure against the hard palate, infection, accidental extubation, malposition, laryngeal or tracheal edema and ulceration, tracheal stenosis, vocal cord injury. Various oral appliances are used for infants to stabilize the tubes and prevent complications associated with long term intubation. This case report describes a prosthodontic approach in management of prolonged neonatal intubation.

Auricular defects comprise a large proportion of maxillofacial deformities. Most patients with acquired deformities have psychosocial ineptness and seek cosmetic rehabilitation. Although minor defects can be corrected surgically, extensive deformities are difficult to reconstruct with plastic surgery. Contrary to that, prosthetic restoration can provide excellent esthetic results. The conventional methods of maxillofacial prosthesis fabrication are time consuming and the outcome depends on the technicians skill. The advent of CAD/CAM technology in the field of dentistry has brought enormous improvement in the quality of health care provided. In the past decade, several methods have been described employing CAD/CAM techniques for the cosmetic rehabilitation of auricular defects. This clinical report details the integration of multiple digital technologies of CT scanning, computer aided design, and rapid prototyping to construct an ear prosthesis with limited number of appointments.
