Red-shouldered Hawk (Buteo lineatus) eggs were examined to determine whether mass, eggshell thickness, and a thickness index corrected for egg shape and blowhole size changed as embryos developed. Four different stages of embryonic development (fresh, slight, large, and advanced) were described by the collector (C.F. Stone), or inferred from blowhole diameter measurements, for 286 Red-shouldered Hawk eggs collected in the late 1800s and early 1900s in central New York State. We examined changes in eggshell mass, thickness, and thickness index with linear mixed models with year of collection and clutch size specified as random variables. We also evaluated annual differences in eggshell characteristics with linear mixed models. There was an 8.8% decrease in eggshell mass between eggs with fresh and advanced embryos at the time of collection (F3,242 = 3.4, P = 0.02). Eggshell thickness tended to decrease by 7.5% between eggs with fresh and advanced embryos, but the difference was not significant (F3,119 = 2.06, P = 0.11). The thickness index also did not change due to stage of embryonic development. The year in which eggs were collected influenced eggshell mass (F12,187 = 2.35, P = 0.008) and the thickness index (F12,188 = 2.68, P = 0.002), but not thickness. This is the first study of eggs collected from wild raptors that demonstrates the magnitude of the effect embryonic development has on eggshell characteristics. © 2017 The Raptor Research Foundation, Inc.

With the increase in mobile device affordances, there has been a concomitant rise in the level of interest in investigating the breadth, purpose and extent of mobile learning in education. This systematic review provides a current synthesis of mobile learning research across 2010–2015 in PK-12 education. This includes a aggregated quantitative and qualitative analysis of the specific mobile learning activities as they connect to learning theories, specifically behaviorist, constructivist, situated, and collaborative learning. Major findings include that the majority of the studies focused on student learning followed by designing systems. Science was the most common subject researched and elementary schools was the most often studies setting. The findings reveal that 40% of the time researchers designed mobile learning activities aligning with the behaviorist approach to learning. This has the students consuming knowledge and not using the full potential of the mobile devices to have students become producers, collaborators, and creators of knowledge. © 2017

The first experimental evidence of rotational Doppler broadening in photoelectron spectra, reported here, show good agreement with recently described theoretical predictions. The dependence of the broadening on temperature and photoelectron kinetic energy is quantitatively predicted by the theory. The experiments verify that the rotational contributions to the linewidth are comparable to those from translational Doppler broadening and must be considered in the analysis of high-resolution photoelectron spectra. A classical model accounting for this newly observed effect is presented. © 2011 American Physical Society.

Social Work in Health Care | Year: 2015
Today’s health care environments require organizational competence as well as clinical skill. Economically driven business paradigms and the principles underlying the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 emphasize integrated, collaborative care delivered using transdisciplinary service models. Attention must be focused on achieving patient care goals while demonstrating an appreciation for the mission, priorities and operational constraints of the provider organization. The educational challenge is to cultivate the ability to negotiate “ideology” or ideal practice with the practical realities of health care provider environments without compromising professional ethics. Competently exercising such ability promotes a sound “profession-in-environment” fit and enhances the recognition of social work as a crucial patient care component.

There is limited research related to perceived educational needs among the newly diagnosed first-time stroke population. This descriptive correlational study was conducted to determine the perceived importance to learn about specific stroke-related topics and the degree of satisfaction with stroke education. Seventy-one newly diagnosed stroke patients from two metropolitan hospitals received a self-report Likert-type questionnaire consisting of eight domains related to different aspects of stroke education. The questionnaire was distributed 24-72 hours after admission to the hospital, upon discharge, and 2 weeks postdischarge. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t tests, and repeated measures analysis of variance. Medical knowledge and medication treatment were rated the most important to learn. Treatment of stroke with herbal or alternative medicine and dietary habits were the least important of the eight domains. Overall, patients were not satisfied with stroke education.

Problem: Patient delay in seeking treatment for stroke symptoms is a major factor in morbidity and mortality due to stroke. Every 4 minutes, someone dies of a stroke, and 54% of those deaths occur before the patient reaches the hospital. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of somatic awareness and symptom attribution to treatment-seeking behaviors in ischemic stroke patients. Design: This was a descriptive, correlational pilot study. Setting: This study was carried out in three tertiary-care hospitals in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Binghamton, New York. Sample: Twenty patients diagnosed with ischemic stroke were included. Instruments: The Modified Somatic Perception Questionnaire measured somatic awareness, and the Symptom Interpretation Questionnaire measured symptom attribution. Results: There was no relationship identified between somatic awareness or symptom attribution and treatment-seeking behaviors. Significance was identified, using t-test comparisons, between physical attribution scores and insurance status (p = .038) and family history of stroke (p = .026). Significant correlations, r = .386 and r = .433, respectively, were identified between somatic awareness and symptom attribution and education. Conclusion: Somatic awareness and symptom attribution were not found to be significantly correlated to time to care. These results must be tempered with the knowledge that the data were derived from a small sample and that some data were missing due to a lack of recall. Significance was identified, in a comparison of the group means, involving insurance status and family history of stroke, to somatic awareness and symptom attribution. Significant correlation was identified between education and these factors. Future research involving these factors, using a revised methodology, should be considered. © 2014 American Association of Neuroscience Nurses.

Adoption records from the Tompkins County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, an open-admission, no-kill shelter in New York State, were examined to determine if various physical attributes influenced the length of stay (LOS) of cats and kittens. Similar reports from other no-kill shelters have not been published. LOS averaged 61.2 days for cats and kittens combined and ranged from less than 1 day to 730 days. Based on mixed models that accounted for lack of independence among attributes, younger, lighter-colored cats were generally adopted more quickly than older, more darkly colored cats, but yellow-colored cats had the greatest LOS. Coat color did not influence LOS for kittens. Coat patterning and breed designation influenced LOS in both cats and kittens. Male cats and kittens had a shorter LOS than female cats and kittens, respectively. Studies from traditional shelters also demonstrated the importance of physical characteristics to adopters. Given adopter preferences for companion animals with certain characteristics, methods to reduce the LOS for cats with the longest potential residences at the shelter require continued development. © 2014, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC, 2014.

Resistance to endocrine therapy is a major clinical problem in breast cancer. The role of ERα splice variants in endocrine resistance is largely unknown. We observed reduced protein expression of an N-terminally truncated ERα46 in endocrine-resistant LCC2, LCC9, and LY2 compared to MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Transfection of LCC9 and LY2 cells with hERα46 partially restored growth inhibition by TAM. Overexpression of hERα46 in MCF-7 cells reduced estradiol (E2)-stimulated endogenous pS2, cyclin D1, nuclear respiratory factor-1 (NRF-1), and progesterone receptor transcription. Expression of oncomiR miR-21 was lower in TAM-resistant LCC9 and LY2 cells compared to MCF-7 cells. Transfection with ERα46 altered the pharmacology of E2 regulation of miR-21 expression from inhibition to stimulation, consistent with the hypothesis that hERα46 inhibits ERα activity. Established miR-21 targets PTEN and PDCD4 were reduced in ERα46-transfected, E2-treated MCF-7 cells. In conclusion, ERα46 appears to enhance endocrine responses by inhibiting selected ERα66 responses. © 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Adoption records from 2 no kill shelters in New York State were examined to determine how age, sex, size, breed group, and coat color influenced the length of stay (LOS) of dogs at these shelters. Young puppies had the shortest length of stay; LOS among dogs increased linearly as age increased. Neither coat color nor sex influenced LOS. Considering only size classifications, medium-size dogs had the greatest LOS, and extra small dogs and puppies remained in shelters for the least amount of time. Considering only breed groupings, dogs in the guard group had the greatest LOS and those in the giant group had the shortest LOS. The lack of effect of coat color was not expected, nor was the shorter LOS among "fighting" breeds compared with other breed groups. Coat color and breed may have only local effects on LOS that do not generalize to all shelters, including traditional shelters. Understanding the traits of dogs in a specific shelter and the characteristics of these nonhuman animals desired by adopters are critical to improving the welfare of animals served by that shelter. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
