Background: Stramenopiles constitute a large and diverse eukaryotic clade that is currently poorly characterized from both phylogenetic and temporal perspectives at deeper taxonomic levels. To better understand this group, and in particular the photosynthetic stramenopiles (Ochrophyta), we analyzed sequence data from 135 taxa representing most major lineages. Our analytical approach utilized several recently developed methods that more realistically model the temporal evolutionary process. Methodology/Principal Findings: Phylogenetic reconstruction employed a Bayesian joint rate- and pattern-heterogeneity model to reconstruct the evolutionary history of these taxa. Inferred phylogenetic resolution was generally high at all taxonomic levels, sister-class relationships in particular receiving good statistical support. A signal for heterotachy was detected in clustered portions of the tree, although this does not seem to have had a major influence on topological inference. Divergence time estimates, assuming a lognormally-distributed relaxed molecular clock while accommodating topological uncertainty, were broadly congruent over alternative temporal prior distributions. These data suggest that Ochrophyta originated near the Proterozoic-Phanerozoic boundary, diverging from their sister-taxon Oomycota. The evolution of the major ochrophyte lineages appears to have proceeded gradually thereafter, with most lineages coming into existence by ~200 million years ago. Conclusions/Significance: The evolutionary timescale of the autotrophic stramenopiles reconstructed here is generally older than previously inferred from molecular clocks. However, this more ancient timescale nevertheless casts serious doubt on the taxonomic validity of putative xanthophyte/phaeophyte fossils from the Proterozoic, which predate by as much as a half billion years or more the age suggested by our molecular genetic data. If these fossils truly represent crown stramenopile lineages, then this would imply that molecular rate evolution in this group proceeds in a fashion that is fundamentally incompatible with the relaxed molecular clock model employed here. A more likely scenario is that there is considerable convergent morphological evolution within Heterokonta, and that these fossils have been taxonomically misdiagnosed. © 2010 Brown, Sorhannus.

From the beginning of the 20th century, researchers have been interested in surface electromagnetic waves guided by planar interfaces of dissimilar mediums. Much initial research on surface-plasmon waves and surface-plasmon-polariton waves stemmed from theoretical curiosity, but the development of new experimental techniques propelled commercial exploitation for optical sensors of chemical and biological species. Additional surface waves called Dyakonov waves, Tamm waves, and Dyakonov-Tamm waves have emerged during the last 25 years. Experimental observation of Dyakonov waves was reported only in 2009, but the rapid development of experimental apparatus during the 1990s suggests that theoretical predictions will soon be evaluated experimentally, leading to further development of optical detection systems and optical circuitry. © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

CB1 antagonists, including rimonabant (SR 141716A), hold considerable therapeutic potential in the reduction of appetite and lipogenesis and in improving the metabolic profile of obese individuals and those with diabetes. However, rimonabant has not been approved in the USA because of its numerous side-effects, including depression and anxiety. Because of this, it is expected that fewer attempts will be made to introduce CB1 antagonists into the market. However, a 'second generation' of compounds has produced promising results in animal models in terms of these side-effects, and may pave the way toward new development and clinical testing of compounds that lack the side-effects of rimonabant. This new generation includes neutral CB1 antagonists, which likely have less intrinsic activity than clinically tested drugs, and peripherally restricted compounds. The current paper reviews the behavioral profile of rimonabant and related compounds, including a similarity in hypophagic effects with putative neutral antagonists and peripherally restricted antagonists. Emerging evidence of a lack of effects in models of nausea, anxiety, and depression is discussed. It is concluded that, with increasing emphasis on modeling the more troublesome side-effects of CB1 antagonists, safe, efficacious therapeutic targets may emerge. Further rigorous preclinical testing should be carried out. © Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

This paper assesses the impacts of multiple job and worker relocation policies on commuting by predicting average minimum commutes by worker type. Each relocation policy contains a set of policy constraints including the worker shift ratio as a measure of jobs-housing balance. The objectives are: (1) to develop a disaggregated linear program measuring the minimum commutes under different relocation policy scenarios, (2) to examine the impacts of worker shift ratio on commuting by worker type, and (3) to identify the effect of occupational heterogeneity on the average minimum commute. Census Transportation Planning Package data are used for the analysis of a tri-state area including Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. The empirical results suggest that the worker shift ratio has impacts on the minimum commutes and varying levels of minimum commutes are found across occupational groups. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Seven years after an initial survey of art therapists that explored digital media use and training, the survey was re-issued to determine how art therapists' perceptions, practices, and training related to the use of digital media in art therapy have evolved, and whether or not this evolution in understanding and use of digital media kept pace with that of the general population. Both surveys targeted 250 art therapists each. The first survey was conducted through email and the second survey was conducted using Survey Monkey. After comparing the two surveys to each other and trends from the general population, it was determined that the adoption of digital technology by art therapists to manage their practice has kept pace with the general population. The use of digital media as an art tool within practice is increasing quickly, but with reservations. The main reservation that art therapists cite about using digital media surrounds ethical issues. Generally the training in the use of digital media by art therapists has not kept up with the adoption rate of technology by art therapists. Thus more training for art therapists in the use of digital media is needed, particularly in the area of understanding ethics that surrounds its use. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Hypotheses about horizontal transfer of antifreeze protein genes to ice-living diatoms were addressed using two different statistical methods available in the program Prunier. The role of diversifying selection in driving the differentiation of a set of antifreeze protein genes in the diatom genus Fragilariopsis was also investigated. Four horizontal gene transfer events were identified. Two of these took place between two major eukaryote lineages, that is from the diatom Chaetoceros neogracile to the copepod Stephos longipes and from a basidiomycete clade to a monophyletic group, consisting of the diatom species Fragilariopsis curta and Fragilariopsis cylindrus. The remaining two events included transfers from an ascomycete lineage to the proteobacterium Stigmatella aurantiaca and from the proteobacterium Polaribacter irgensii to a group composed of 4 proteobacterium species. After the Fragilariopsis lineage acquired the antifreeze protein gene from the basidiomycetes, it duplicated and went through episodic evolution, characterized by strong positive selection acting on short segments of the branches in the tree. This selection pattern suggests that the paralogs differentiated functionally over relatively short time periods. Taken together, the results obtained here indicate that the group of antifreeze protein genes considered here have a complex evolutionary history. © The author(s), publisher and licensee Libertas Academica Ltd.

Contraception | Year: 2011
Background: This study explored male and female college students' knowledge of and attitudes toward emergency contraception pills (ECPs). Study Design: A survey of 692 undergraduate college students (338 male and 358 female) was conducted at a mid-size university in northwest Pennsylvania during the Spring 2008 semester. Results: Eighty-three percent of the participants had experienced sexual intercourse, and 52% of them had feared a pregnancy at least once. Only 17% of the participants indicated prior use of ECP. Seventy-four percent of the students had heard of emergency contraception (EC); however, less than one-third knew the prescription status, common side effects or mechanisms of ECP. Only 16% of the participants knew that ECP was available at their college health center. Fifty percent of the students reported that they would feel comfortable using ECP, and 58% felt that ECP should be available without a prescription. Conclusions: College students' knowledge level about EC is poor. There is a clear need for ECP as a pregnancy prevention method among college students and for better education about it. © 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Objective: To investigate the availability of emergency contraceptive pills (ECPs) at college health centers since ECP went over-the-counter (OTC) in 2006. Related issues, such as distribution procedure, existence of a written protocol, personnel involved, contraindications, follow-up procedures, methods of advertising, and staff attitudes, were examined. Participants: The sample included 135 college and university health centers in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Methods: Data were collected via telephone survey with the use of a 42-item survey instrument. Results: Forty-three percent of schools reported distributing ECPs, for an average of 10.6 years. Major changes in ECP distribution and usage since ECP went OTC related primarily to protocol in ECP distribution, advertising for ECP services, and ECP accessibility to university students. Conclusions: College health centers are responding to the OTC status of ECP in a number of ways, primarily relating to their distribution procedures and advertising techniques.
