LearnHowToBecome.org, a leading resource provider for higher education and career information, has evaluated the best colleges and universities in California for 2017. Of the 50 four-year schools who made the list, Stanford University, University of Southern California, California Institute of Technology, University of California Los Angeles and University of California Berkeley came in as the top five. Of the 50 two-year schools ranked, Santa Rosa Junior College, Pasadena City College, Ohlone College, College of San Mateo and Mission College were the top five. A full list of schools is included below. “California offers students some of the highest-quality academic opportunities in the country, and the schools on our list are the best of the best,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.org. “Not only do these colleges and universities offer outstanding degree programs, they also provide their students with career resources and counseling services that equip them for post-college success.” To be included on the “Best Colleges in California” list, institutions must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit schools. Each college is ranked on additional statistics including the number of degree programs offered, the availability of career and academic resources, the opportunity for financial aid, graduation rates and annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college.

The Kinetic Family Drawing (KFD) and the Draw-A-Person: Screening Procedure for Emotional Disturbance (DAP:SPED) are intended to facilitate therapeutic discussion and assess emotional disturbance; however, little research exists on their use with victims of trauma or for identifying posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This study examined drawings by 43 mothers who experienced intimate partner violence and 56 children who witnessed violence between parents. Quantitative analysis of drawings showed no differences between participants with and without PTSD. A grounded theory approach to analysis of the KFD identified themes that differentiated the groups. Our results conflict with previous research on the DAP:SPED as an effective screening tool, and confirms research indicating that qualitative interpretation of drawings is a useful tool with trauma-exposed clients. © 2017, © AATA, Inc.

The effects of an oligogalacturonic acid (OGA) pool on root length of intact alfalfa seedlings (Medicago sativa L.), on extracellular pH and on both extracellular and intracellular O2 - dynamics were examined in this study. Lower OGA concentrations (25, 50 and 75μgmL-1) promoted root length, but 50μgmL-1 had a stronger effect in promoting growth, while the higher OGA concentration (100μgmL-1) had no significant effect. Extracellular alkalinization was tested only at concentrations higher than 50μgmL-1 OGA, showing that the response is determined not only by the specific size of OGA, but also by the concentration of OGA. The promoting effect of OGA on root growth at 25, 50 and 75μgmL-1 OGA concentrations in alfalfa root appeared to be unrelated to extracellular alkalinization. A possible explanation could be the induction of an O2 - burst at non-toxic levels, which could drive directly or indirectly several processes associated with root elongation in 25, 50 and 75μgmL-1 OGA-treated seedlings. Analyses using confocal microscopy showed that the increase in the O2 - generation, mainly in the epidermal cells, induced by 50μgmL-1 OGA could be related to the promoting effect on root growth. The combination of OGA with DPI allowed us to demonstrate that there are different O2 --generating sources in the epidermal cells of the meristematic zone, likely NADPH oxidase and oxidases or oxido-reductase enzymes, insensitive to DPI, that maintain detectable O2 - accumulation at 60 and 120min of treatment. These results suggest that OGA induce an oxidative burst by several O2 --generating sources in the active growth zones. © 2010 Elsevier GmbH.

Brucella are facultative intracellular bacteria that chronically infect humans and animals causing brucellosis. Brucella are able to invade and replicate in a broad range of cell lines in vitro, however the cells supporting bacterial growth in vivo are largely unknown. In order to identify these, we used a Brucella melitensis strain stably expressing mCherry fluorescent protein to determine the phenotype of infected cells in spleen and liver, two major sites of B. melitensis growth in mice. In both tissues, the majority of primary infected cells expressed the F4/80 myeloid marker. The peak of infection correlated with granuloma development. These structures were mainly composed of CD11b+ F4/80+ MHC-II+ cells expressing iNOS/NOS2 enzyme. A fraction of these cells also expressed CD11c marker and appeared similar to inflammatory dendritic cells (DCs). Analysis of genetically deficient mice revealed that differentiation of iNOS+ inflammatory DC, granuloma formation and control of bacterial growth were deeply affected by the absence of MyD88, IL-12p35 and IFN-γ molecules. During chronic phase of infection in susceptible mice, we identified a particular subset of DC expressing both CD11c and CD205, serving as a reservoir for the bacteria. Taken together, our results describe the cellular nature of immune effectors involved during Brucella infection and reveal a previously unappreciated role for DC subsets, both as effectors and reservoir cells, in the pathogenesis of brucellosis. © 2012 Copin et al.
