Southeast Missouri State University, is a public, accredited university located in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, United States, near the banks of the Mississippi River. The institution, having started as a normal school, has a traditional strength in teacher education. The recent addition of the River Campus, housing the Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts, has increased the university's commitment to education in the arts. As a comprehensive institution, the institution offers over 200 areas of study, including undergraduate degrees as well as master's degrees and a cooperative Ed.D. program with the University of Missouri.

The swimbladder plays an important role in buoyancy regulation but is typically reduced or even absent in benthic freshwater fishes that inhabit fast flowing water. Here, we document, for the first time, a remarkable example of swimbladder sexual dimorphism in the highly rheophilic South Asian torrent minnows (Psilorhynchus). The male swimbladder is not only much larger than that of the female (up to five times the diameter and up to 98 times the volume in some cases), but is also structurally more complex, with multiple internal septa dividing it into smaller chambers. Males also exhibit a strange organ of unknown function or homology in association with the swimbladder that is absent in females. Extreme sexual dimorphism of non-gonadal internal organs is rare among vertebrates and the swimbladder sexual dimorphisms that we describe for Psilorhynchus are unique among fishes. © 2014 The Author(s) Published by the Royal Society.

The title compound, {(C9H14N)2[Cu3Cl 8]} n , consists of parallel chains of alternating quasiplanar Cu2Cl6 and planar CuCl4 complexes separated by trimethyl-phenyl-ammonium cations. Both inorganic complexes possess inversion symmetry. Pairs of neighboring chloride ions of the CuCl4 complex each form a symmetric bridge and an asymmetric bridge to Cu2Cl 6 complexes on either side. The Cu2Cl6 complex contains two symmetric chloride bridges between the copper cations with a terminal chloride bound to each five-coordinated CuII ion. The CuCl4 complex completes its coordination environment by forming two long semicoordinate contacts to the bridging chloride ions of neighboring Cu2Cl6 complexes. The use of the bridging rather than the terminal chloride ions to form semicoordinate contacts generates a new zigzag chain structure that differs from the straight chain structures found for other A 2Cu3Cl8 compounds. The zigzag chain structure is adopted so as to conform to the shorter repeat distance dicta-ted by stacking of the organic cations. © 2010 International Union of Crystallography.

This article focuses on the current state of medical education as it relates to the reforms introduced in the wake of the Flexner Report of 1910. The usefulness of outsiders in both understanding and analysing any specialised endeavour, and, specifically, medical education, is carefully considered. No voices call more loudly for change in medical education today than those emanating from within the arena itself. Interestingly, however, the monumental reforms of the Flexner Report were impelled largely from outside the specific discipline of medical education.Observations Internal tensions exist between the natural and social sciences. These tensions present formidable obstacles to the balance between advances in biomedical knowledge and the humane and socially acceptable application of that knowledge. Medical education's responses to society's pressures for accessibility and humaneness occupy the next discussion point, named here as 're-democratisation' and 're-humanisation'. A final observation questions whether the current proliferation of literature about reforms in medical education can lead to real change, or whether it constitutes a self-referential agitation that, in the aggregate, holds little promise.Conclusions It is suggested that not only are outsiders useful, but they may perhaps represent the only channel through which medical education can align its current practice with both its internal ideals and the demands of the public, members of which live and die by its efforts. © Blackwell Publishing Ltd 2010.

A number of prior studies have been conducted to assess the extent of progress within these stages in the BI area. Among them, a study of Eom [1] has provided bibliometric evidence that the decision support system has made meaningful progress over the past three and a half decades (1969-2004). The primary data for this study were gathered from a total of 498 citing articles in the BI/DSS area over the past eight years (2005-2012). This study, based on author cocitation analysis (ACA), presents two important findings. First, the empirical consensus of BI researchers reveals that the focus of business intelligence research is shifting to knowledge management and data mining. Second, since ACA is a supporting quantitative tool that must be used with further qualitative analysis of bibliographic data, we examined the foundational concepts of knowledge management provided by the most influential scholars and their most frequently cited publications. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.

Low-Intensity occlusion training provides a unique beneficial training mode for promoting muscle hypertrophy. Training at intensities as low as 20% 1RM with moderate vascular occlusion results in muscle hypertrophy in as little as three weeks. The primary mechanisms by which occlusion training is thought to stimulate growth include, metabolic accumulation, which stimulates a subsequent increase in anabolic growth factors, fast-twitch fiber recruitment (FT), and increased protein synthesis through the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) pathway. Heat shock proteins, Nitric oxide synthase-1 (NOS-1) and Myostatin have also been shown to be affected by an occlusion stimulus. In conclusion, low-intensity occlusion training appears to work through a variety of mechanisms. The research behind these mechanisms is incomplete thus far, and requires further examination, primarily to identify the actual metabolite responsible for the increase in GH with occlusion, and determine which mechanisms are associated to a greater degree with the hypertrophic/anti- catabolic changes seen with blood flow restriction. © Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart - New York.
