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."

Scarce research has examined the effects of carbohydrate composition on running stride characteristics. On two occasions, 14 males and 6 females completed a 120-min sub-maximal run followed by a 4-mile time trial. Participants consumed glucose (GLU) or glucose–fructose (GLU–FRU) beverages supplying 1.3 g/min carbohydrate. Substrate use, psychological affect [Feeling Scale (FS)], and stride characteristics (stride frequency, stride length, and contact time) were assessed. Effects were expressed as Cohen’s d (90% confidence limits [90% CL]). CLs for stride frequency differences at 53 min (90% CL = 0.04–0.21) and 113 min (90% CL = 0.02–0.24) did not cover 0, indicating a positive effect of GLU–FRU. However, effect sizes were small (d = 0.13) and likely-to-very-likely trivial. Energy expenditure differences at sub-maximal end were very likely trivial (d = 0.08; 90% CL = 0.00–0.17), while FS ratings were possibly higher for GLU–FRU at 50 (d = 0.19; 90% CL = −0.10–0.48) and 110 min (d = 0.16; 90% CL = −0.13–0.45). During the time trial, stride length was possibly higher with GLU–FRU (d = 0.13; 90% CL = −0.08–0.33). Glucose–fructose co-ingestion has no significant effect on stride characteristics during constant-velocity running but may result in slightly higher stride length during self-paced running. © 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.

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 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 need for nurse educators around the globe is prompting some to do short-term teaching internationally. Prompted by God's call and the great need at the Faculty of Nursing Science of the Episcopal University of Haiti (FSIL), the author taught in Léogâne, Haiti, for 18 days. This article shares practical insights from her experience and important revelations about teaching cross-culturally.

Introduction: Dentistry is predominantly a field of surgery, involving exposure to blood and other potentially infectious materials and therefore requires a high standard of infection control and safety practice in controlling cross-contamination and occupational exposures to blood- and saliva-borne diseases. Methodology: A questionnaire survey was conducted in 60 dental colleges throughout India to establish routine methods of treating impressions of the oral cavity for disinfection. An email describing the purpose of the study along with a short questionnaire was sent to one of the teaching faculty of concerned departments of the colleges. Questions were asked regarding availability of materials required to disinfect the impressions, the preferred method to treat the impression, and whether postgraduate courses were offered by the department. Results: The routine method of treating the impression reported by75.9% of the respondents was washing under running water, while 24.1% of the respondents reported that impressions were treated by chemical disinfectants. Conclusion: Strict infection control measures are necessary to ensure the health and safety of dental workers and patients. The present study showed that there is a lack of commitment to high standards of infection control practices in dental colleges in India. © 2011 Marya et al.
