NEW YORK, May 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dr. Kelly De Simone, Owner/CEO at Eye Priority, P.C, has been selected to join the Physician Board at the American Health Council. She will be sharing her knowledge and expertise in Optometry, Eye Care, and Patient Care. With over three decades of experience in the field of Optometry, Dr. De Simone offers valuable insight in her role as the Owner/CEO of Eye Priority, P.C. Established in 1991 in Ahwatukee, Arizona, Eye Priority, P.C. is a family eye care facility offering a personalized vision experience for clients as young as six months to adults. As the Owner/CEO at Eye Priority, P.C. since 2000, Dr. De Simone’s day-to-day responsibilities include being a full-time doctor of optometry, vision exams, decision maker of the equipment inventory, neuro rehabilitation, and bookkeeping. Her specialties include neuro-optometric enhancement and rehab for adults with acquired vision problems, sport enhancement vision, concussions, brain injuries, as well as treating children with learning problems, crossed eye, lazy eye, or reading comprehension difficulties. In 1993, Dr. De Simone earned her optometry degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. Additionally, she completed a Bachelor of Art in Anthropology from Pennsylvania State University in 1985. She is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. “I have a diverse optometry practice and my passion is helping people develop their vision,” said Dr. Kelly De Simone. “With over 25 years’ experience in this field it amazes me that people still have not heard of Vision Therapy. It is the best kept secret in the world. It is time to change. I welcome you to contact me, so I can show you how Vision Therapy can change your life.” Dr. De Simone maintains affiliations with the Arizona Optometry Association, American Optometry Association, National Association of Women Business Owners, National Association of Professional Women and Neuro Optometric Rehabilitation Association. She volunteers with the Kyrene Foundation and serves the Co-President of Desert Vista High School Spiritline. Dr. De Simone attributes her success to being a hard worker, loving the field of optometry, and support from her family. Her commitment to the field of Optometry has resulted in recognition as a multi-year recipient of the “Best of Ahwatukee: Best Place for an Eye Exam”, the 2011 Ahwatukee Chamber Business Women of the Year, and the Skeffington Award for Excellence in Vision Therapy 1993. In her free time, she enjoys reading, crocheting, cooking, riding her bike, walking her dog, and attending book club meetings. Looking ahead, Dr. De Simone hopes for continued growth in her professional career and is currently working on a book about Vision Development. The American Health Council is the nation’s only organization with a constituency representative of all sectors of the healthcare industry. From the coasts to the heartland, the American Health Council has drawn Affiliates from major metropolitan hubs and small communities. These Affiliates span generations and have reached different stages of their careers — from recent graduates to retirees.

To further improve the high-temperature electrochemical performance of perovskite-type oxides, the LaFeO3 carbon-coated composites used as the negative materials for MH-Ni batteries were obtained using the polyaniline (PANI) pyrolysis method. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) results revealed that LaFeO3 particles were evenly coated with carbon layers, forming a core-shell structure. The carbon layers could enhance the conductivity and electrocatalytic activity, speeding up hydrogen protons transferring from electrolyte to electrode interface. Furthermore, the carbon coatings hindered the LaFeO3 particles from aggregating into stacks and reduced the corrosion of the LaFeO3 electrodes. At an elevated temperature (60°C), owing to the carbon coatings, the maximum discharge capacity of the LaFeO3 electrodes remarkably increased from 211mAhg-1 to 358mAhg-1, and charge retention (CR) increased from 85.4% to 94.6%. Also, the high rate dischargeability at a discharge current density of 1500mAg-1 (HRD 1500) increased from 21.0% to 37.6%, and the capacity retention rate after 100 cycles (S 100) increased from 63.0% to 70.9%. © 2015 Hydrogen Energy Publications, LLC.

Mating induces behavioral and physiological changes in the plant bug Lygus hesperus Knight (Hemiptera: Miridae). After receiving seminal products, which include the systemic regulator juvenile hormone (JH), females enter a post-mating period lasting several days during which they enhance their oviposition rate and lose interest in remating. To elucidate the regulation of these behavioral changes in L. hesperus, biogenic amines were quantified in the heads of females at 5 min, 1 h and 24 h after copulation and compared to levels in virgins using high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrochemical detection. Mating significantly increased dopamine (DA) after 1 and 24 h, and decreased octopamine (OA) after 5 min and 1 h. Serotonin did not change with mating, but tyramine was significantly reduced after 5 min. While injection of amines into virgin females did not influence sexual receptivity, OA caused a decrease in oviposition during the 24 h following injection. Topical application of the JH analog methoprene to virgins caused an increase in DA, and a decline in mating propensity, but did not influence other amines or the oviposition rate. The results suggest the decline in OA observed immediately after mating may promote egg laying, and that male-derived JH may induce an increase in DA that could account for the post-mating loss of sexual receptivity. © 2015, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg (outside the USA).
