SPRING, TX, February 23, 2017-- Christina Rene' Murata, Owner, Chief Executive Officer, and Process Safety Consultant with Risk Integrity Safety Knowledge, Inc. (RISK, Inc.), has been recognized as a Distinguished Professional in her field through Women of Distinction Magazine. Christine Rene' Murata was recently featured in Women of Distinction Magazine and will soon be featured in the Top 10 of 2016 edition.After completing her undergraduate work in 2004, Christina Rene' Murata began her career as an Assistant Engineer for an electrical firm in their Research and Development Department developing internal policies and procedures. Several years later, she relocated to California with her husband and took a position as an Administrative Assistant working in refinery before being promoted to Engineering Assistant turned Assistant Engineer. It was during that time that she became educated on Process Safety Management (PSM) that was required of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.As a Process Safety Consultant in the gas, oil, chemical, and petrochemical industries, Murata has been serving as Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Risk Integrity Safety Knowledge, Inc. (RISK, Inc.) for the past seven years.

News Article | December 19, 2016

Boston, MA - Elderly hospitalized patients treated by female physicians are less likely to die within 30 days of admission, or to be readmitted within 30 days of discharge, than those cared for by male physicians, according to a new study led by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. It is the first research to document differences in how male and female physicians treat patients result in different outcomes for hospitalized patients in the U.S. The researchers estimated that if male physicians could achieve the same outcomes as their female colleagues, there would be 32,000 fewer deaths each year among Medicare patients alone--a number comparable to the annual number of motor vehicle accident deaths nationally. The study will be published online December 19, 2016 in JAMA Internal Medicine. "The difference in mortality rates surprised us," said lead author Yusuke Tsugawa, research associate in the Department of Health Policy and Management. "The gender of the physician appears to be particularly significant for the sickest patients. These findings indicate that potential differences in practice patterns between male and female physicians may have important clinical implications." Previous studies have found differences in the way female and male physicians practice -- for example, female physicians are more likely to adhere to clinical guidelines and provide more patient-centered communication--but this is the first national study to look at whether the differences in the way male and female physicians practice affect clinical outcomes. The researchers analyzed data from more than 1 million Medicare beneficiaries age 65 years or older hospitalized with a medical condition and treated by general internists between 2011 and 2014. They adjusted for differences in patient and physician characteristics, and considered whether differences in patient outcomes varied by specific condition or by severity of illness. The researchers found that the patients, if treated by a female physician, had a 4% lower relative risk of dying prematurely and a 5% lower relative risk of being readmitted to a hospital within 30 days. The association was seen across a wide variety of clinical conditions and variations in severity of illness. When the researchers restricted their analysis to hospitalists -- physicians focused on hospital care, to whom patients are randomly assigned based on work schedule--the results remained consistent, suggesting that patient selection, in which healthier patients might choose certain types of doctors, didn't explain the results. Female physicians now account for approximately one third of the U.S. physician workforce and comprise half of all U.S. medical school graduates. There are important gender differences in how women physicians are treated--they are less likely to be promoted and are generally paid less, said senior author Ashish Jha, K.T. Li Professor of Health Policy and director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. "There was ample evidence that male and female physicians practice medicine differently. Our findings suggest that those differences matter and are important to patient health. We need to understand why female physicians have lower mortality so that all patients can have the best possible outcomes, irrespective of the gender of their physician," said Jha. Jena was supported by NIH Early Independence Award, Grant 1DP5OD017897-01 and reports receiving consulting fees unrelated to this work from Pfizer, Inc., Hill Rom Services, Inc., Bristol Myers Squibb, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, Vertex Pharmaceuticals, and Precision Health Economics, a company providing consulting services to the life sciences industry. Tsugawa was supported in part by St. Luke's International University, Tokyo, Japan. "Physician Gender and Outcomes of Hospitalized Medicare Beneficiaries in the U.S.," Yusuke Tsugawa, Anupam B.

We first prove an explicit criterion for positive linear time-varying differential systems with distributed delay. Then some simple criteria for exponential stability of positive linear time-invariant differential systems with delay are presented. Finally, we extend obtained results to linear differential systems with time-varying delay and to nonlinear differential systems with delay. The results given in this technical note are extensions of some recent results in [7],[11] , and [14] . © 2012 IEEE.

Error indicator plays an essential role in developing automatically adaptive analysis procedures that can maximize the rate of convergence of the approximation. For direct limit state analysis problems, the accuracy of numerical solutions is highly affected by local singularities arising from localized yield stresses. It turns out that these local singularity regions should be refined in computational process, making sure that errors in the stress fields can be reduced. In this paper, an error indicator based on the localized yield stresses for adaptive quasi-static yield design of structures will be described. The non-linear yield criterion is formulated as a quadratic conic constraint, allowing that the obtained optimization problem can be solved using highly efficient solvers. Various numerical examples are examined to illustrate the performance of the proposed adaptive procedure. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
