Wesley Woods at New Albany announced its third marketing coordinator last week, Colleen Krupp. By accepting this role, Krupp will become responsible for educating the community on a Continuing Care Retirement Community, especially the Life Plan Community in New Albany, Ohio. She will serve as a liaison to inquiries, building community relations for the recently-opened Wesley Woods. Krupp brings more than 20 years of experience in skilled nursing and assisted living care administration, sales and marketing at a variety of retirement communities including Methodist Eldercare’s Wesley Ridge property. From her previous experience, Krupp said she believes Methodist Eldercare (MEC) has proven to be a leader in senior living. “I am thrilled to be returning home to MEC,” Krupp said. “The longevity of this organization amazes me. I understand and can attest to the quality of life a full continuum of care provides residents. Access to resources that allow residents to develop mind, body and spirit, while still offering completely independent living, is a unique and exciting opportunity for Northeast Columbus.” Krupp earned both a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration and a Master’s of Business Administration at Ohio Dominican University. While she is a native of Springfield, Ohio, Krupp has resided in Columbus for more than 17 years. The state-of-the-art property boasts a location unlike similar complexes. Krupp said while the campus spans much acreage with a wooded backdrop, dining, shopping and other New Albany staples are very close. “At Methodist Eldercare, we work tirelessly to support our residents,” CEO, Margaret R. Carmany, said. “We aim to fulfill our mission of living a better life through the highest quality of care. Wesley Woods at New Albany helps us to broaden both the geographical and demographical profile of our residents.” Krupp lives with her husband, John, 11 year old son, Oliver, and cat, Logan. She enjoys running, as well as belonging to the the board of the Bexley Area Chamber of Commerce and being membership chair for her civic association for her neighborhood. “This is an extensive new project and it excites me because I will be working in my own backyard,” Krupp said. “Personally residing in a nearby neighborhood is a true advantage. I can anticipate the questions and concerns of future residents and confidently relate to them.” The first phase of Wesley Woods opened in December 2016 and will offer detached, villa-style cottages with attached two-car garages and retirement living apartments on 37.8 acres alongside a nature preserve. The entire new development, Wesley Woods at New Albany community will provide full health services, as health needs change, and is planned to open in late 2017. Call (614) 656-4100 for more information regarding Wesley Woods at New Albany. Methodist ElderCare Services is an affiliate of the West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church that provides quality housing, health care and services for seniors in Central Ohio.

Binary optimal codes often contain optimal or near-optimal subcodes. In this paper we show that this is true for the family of self-dual codes. One approach is to compute the optimum distance profiles (ODPs) of linear codes, which was introduced by Luo, et al. (2010). One of our main results is the development of general algorithms, called the Chain Algorithms, for finding ODPs of linear codes. Then we determine the ODPs for the Type II codes of lengths up to 24 and the extremal Type II codes of length 32, give a partial result of the ODP of the extended quadratic residue code q48 of length 48. We also show that there does not exist a [48,k,16] subcode of q48 for k≥17, and we find a first example of a doubly-even self-complementary [48,16,16] code. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.

BACKGROUND: Mechanical ventilation (MV) is a life-saving intervention in patients with acute respiratory failure. However, prolonged MV results in ventilator-induced diaphragm dysfunction (VIDD), a condition characterized by both diaphragm fiber atrophy and contractile dysfunction. Previous work has shown that calpain, caspase-3, and the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway (UPP) are all activated in the diaphragm during prolonged MV. However, although it is established that both calpain and caspase-3 are important contributors to VIDD, the role that the UPP plays in the development of VIDD remains unknown. These experiments tested the hypothesis that inhibition of the UPP will protect the diaphragm against VIDD. METHODS: The authors tested this prediction in an established animal model of MV using a highly specific UPP inhibitor, epoxomicin, to prevent MV-induced activation of the proteasome in the diaphragm (n = 8 per group). RESULTS: The results of this study reveal that inhibition of the UPP did not prevent ventilator-induced diaphragm muscle fiber atrophy and contractile dysfunction during 12 h of MV. Also, inhibition of the UPP does not affect MV-induced increases in calpain and caspase-3 activity in the diaphragm. Finally, administration of the proteasome inhibitor did not protect against the MV-induced increases in the expression of the E3 ligases, muscle ring finger-1 (MuRF1), and atrogin-1/MaFbx. CONCLUSION: Collectively, these results indicate that proteasome activation does not play a required role in VIDD development during the first 12 h of MV.
