Glyndŵr University is a British university with campuses at Wrexham, Northop and St Asaph in north-east Wales; and at Elephant and Castle, London. It offers both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, as well as professional courses. GU has approximately 9,000 students.Formerly known as the North East Wales Institute of Higher Education , it was granted full university status in 2008 after being a member of the University of Wales since 2003. The university is named after the medieval Welsh prince Owain Glyndŵr, who first suggested the establishment of universities throughout Wales in the early 15th century.In June 2014 the university was suspended from recruiting students from outside the UK. This followed an investigation into students who had obtained fraudulent English language qualifications in order to gain admission to the university. An investigation is currently under way and a task force has been established with the aim of getting the suspension lifted. Wikipedia.

Psychological-type profiles of Anglican clergy and of Anglican congregations routinely direct attention to the over-representation of feeling types, and to the consequent under-representation of thinking types. The present study of 164 men and 239 women who completed the Francis Psychological-Types Scales in the context of a cathedral carol service found a higher proportion of thinking types in this congregation than in the regular Sunday congregations of parish churches. The implications of these findings are discussed for the development of cathedral ministry. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC. Source

The article presents international survey results from experts recruited through the European Violence in Psychiatry Research Group on the use of emergency psychiatric medication for the treatment of violence and aggression. Of 21 countries surveyed, 15 use parenteral haloperidol and lorazepam, 13 use second-generation antipsychotics, and 9 use low-potency antipsychotics. Twelve still use zuclopenthixol. Three countries use intravenous medication. Eleven countries have no guidelines. Only the United Kingdom, Germany, and Bulgaria have national guidelines. © 2013 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.

Polymer extrusion is the most fundamental technique for processing polymeric materials, and its importance is increasing due to the rapid growth of worldwide demand for polymeric materials. However, the process thermal monitoring is experiencing several problems resulting in poor process diagnostics and control. Most of the existing process thermal monitoring methods in industry only provide point/bulk measurements, which are less detailed and low in accuracy. Physical thermal profile measurements across the melt flow may not be industrially compatible due to their complexity, access requirements, invasiveness, etc. Therefore, inferential thermal profile monitoring techniques are invaluable for obtaining detailed, accurate, and industrially compatible measurements and, hence, to achieve improved process control. In this paper, a novel soft sensor strategy is proposed to predict the real-time temperature profile across the die melt flow in polymer extrusion for the first time in industry or research. It is capable of determining the melt temperature at a number of die radial positions only based on six readily measurable process parameters. A comparison between the simulation results of the novel melt temperature profile prediction soft sensor and the experimental measurements showed that the soft sensor can predict the real-time melt temperature profile of the die melt flow with good accuracy. Therefore, this will offer a promising solution for making real-time melt temperature profile measurements noninvasively in polymer extrusion, and also, it should be applicable to other polymer processes only with a few modifications. Moreover, this technique should facilitate in developing an advanced process thermal control strategy. © 2014 IEEE. Source

The extent to which religion and spirituality are integrated into routine psychiatric practice has been a source of increasing controversy over recent years. While taking a patient's spiritual needs into account when planning their care may be less contentious, disclosure to the patient by the psychiatrist of their own religious beliefs or consulting clergy in the context of treatment are seen by some as potentially harmful and in breach of General Medical Council guidance. Here, Professor Rob Poole and Professor Christopher Cook debate whether praying with a patient constitutes a breach of professional boundaries in psychiatric practice. Source

In this paper, various higher-order shear deformation beam theories for bending and free vibration of functionally graded beams are developed. The developed theories account for higher-order variation of transverse shear strain through the depth of the beam, and satisfy the stress-free boundary conditions on the top and bottom surfaces of the beam. A shear correction factor, therefore, is not required. In addition, these theories have strong similarities with Euler-Bernoulli beam theory in some aspects such as equations of motion, boundary conditions, and stress resultant expressions. The material properties of the functionally graded beam are assumed to vary according to power law distribution of the volume fraction of the constituents. Equations of motion and boundary conditions are derived from Hamilton's principle. Analytical solutions are presented, and the obtained results are compared with the existing solutions to verify the validity of the developed theories. Finally, the influences of power law index and shear deformation on the bending and free vibration responses of functionally graded beams are investigated. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd. Source
