The University of the East also known as U.E, is a private university located in Manila, Philippines. It was founded in 1946. Lucio Tan acquired the university in 1990. UE was once labeled as the "largest university in Asia" once having an enrollment of over 60,000 students.UE was granted the "Autonomous Status" by the Commission on Higher Education which has only been given to selected higher educational institutions with excellent quality education. Some of the programs offered by the university were accredited by CHED as Centers of Excellence and Centers of Development.UE offers degree programs in commerce and business administration, law, dentistry, engineering, arts and science, fine arts, education, computer technology, nursing, physical therapy, medicine, hospitality management and graduate studies. UE has two other campuses, one in Caloocan and its medical school, the UE Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center located in Quezon City. Wikipedia.

This study aimed to determine the reasons why Filipinos were not engaged in online shopping. Toward this aim, 400 respondents answered a 23-item questionnaire. It was revealed that most of the respondents were male, single, and at least college graduates. They were employees, belonged to diverse economic backgrounds, had computer and Internet access at home, and owned ATM cards. The majority did not have a credit card. Exploratory factor analysis using varimax rotation revealed that there were four reasons why respondents were not engaged in online shopping. These reasons were availability of mall services (M), quality issues (Q), price concerns (P), and interest (I). Confirmatory factor analysis reduced the number of items of MQPI from 23 to 17 items. It was disclosed that the constructs were of good fit. Discriminant validity showed that all reasons were distinct from one another. Convergent validity of the constructs was also achieved. MQPI was able to capture 72% of the reasons why Filipinos were not engaged in online shopping. Implications and directions for future research that could be derived from this study were also presented. Copyright © 2016, IGI Global. Source

The cytokine, interleukin-1β (IL1β) is a sleep regulatory substance whose expression is enhanced in response to neuronal stimulation. In this study, IL1β mRNA and immunoreactivity (IR) are evaluated after acute cocaine. First, IL1β mRNA levels were measured at the start or end of the light period after saline or acute exposure to a low dose of cocaine (5 mg/kg, intraperitoneal (ip)). IL1β mRNA levels after an acute exposure to cocaine (5 mg/kg, ip) at dark onset were significantly higher than those obtained from rats sacrificed after an acute exposure to saline in the piriform and somatosensory cortex, and nucleus accumbens. Acute exposure of cocaine at 5 mg/kg at dark onset also increased the number of IL1β-immunoreactive astrocytes in layer I-V of the prefrontal cortex, somatosensory cortex and nucleus accumbens. These data suggest that IL1β mRNA and protein levels in some of the dopaminergically innervated brain regions are responsive to cocaine. © 2011 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. Source

This study employed canonical correlation analysis to determine which of the possible combinations of student, web portal design, and objective measure-related factors might influence both frequency and satisfaction of use of the web portal information services (WPIS). Data gathered from the two studies revealed that usability of WPIS is a combination of self-initiative, commitment, content, availability, speed, esthetics, ease of use, and effectiveness of WPIS. Thus, the null hypothesis stating that the predictor variable set cannot explain any of the variance of the dependent variables was rejected. It was concluded that the WPIS usability was more sensitive to design-related factors than the student-related factors. It was likewise shown that effectiveness is a design consideration and not a dimension of usability in the context of web portal. Further, it was disclosed that initiative and commitment and not external pressure influence the usability of WPIS. Limitations and recommendations were also offered. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC Source

This study determined the influence of faculty- and web portal design-related factors on web portal usability. Descriptive statistics revealed that most of the respondents were in their early 40's, had Master's degree, had Internet access at home, were committed to the use of the web portal, had been using the web portal for more than 4 semesters, and were intermediate users. They perceived that it was evident that the web portal was designed in terms of ease of use, information content, availability, speed, and aesthetics. Both e-learning services and library online resources were only used from time to time. The fourth step of hierarchical regression analysis showed age could only influence web portal usability provided the users were committed to the use of the web portal. The last step revealed that age, commitment to the use of the web portal, and information content found to influence web portal usability. Thus, the fourth and fifth null hypotheses were partially rejected. It was concluded that commitment was a strong positive "force" that could push older people to use Internet technologies, and technical and non-technical aspects influence web portal usability. Implications were also presented. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. Source

Primary tooth impaction is a rare phenomenon when compared to permanent teeth impaction. The purpose of this report is to present a 5-year-old Chinese girl who exhibited impaction of tooth 51, its unusual consequence on the permanent successor tooth and its comprehensive management. Her parents revealed that at 6 months of age, the patient had fallen from her bed and struck her face on the floor; however, there were no teeth present in the oral cavity. The intraoral examinations identified a bony-like projection on the buccal aspect of the alveolus in the 51 region. Radiographic examination revealed that tooth 51 exhibited an unfavourable orientation, with the crown directed towards the palate. Therefore, the impacted tooth 51 was surgically removed, and two years later tooth 11 erupted into the oral cavity with an indentation on its incisal aspect, which resembled the crown of the primary teeth, thus giving the appearance of a tooth within a tooth or 'dens in dente'. Subsequently, enameloplasty and composite resin build-up was performed on tooth 11 for aesthetic reasons. It is very unusual to have the clinical crowns of both primary and permanent teeth in such close proximity within the alveolar bone, and the present case is a good example to emphasize that trauma to the primary teeth is of considerable importance due to the close proximity of the primary teeth to permanent tooth germs. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
