    Imagine you are a grad student, at your first conference, and a prominent senior scientist shows interest in your work, and he makes things get way too personal? What would you do? Would you report it? Or would you decide, after a few other instances of harassment, that maybe you shouldn't pursue astronomy? Harassment is under-reported, the policies can be difficult to understand or hard to find, and it can be very intimidating as a young scientist to report it to the proper individuals. The Astronomy Allies Program is designed to help you with these sorts of problems. We are a group of volunteers that will help by doing the following: provide safe walks home during the conference, someone to talk to confidentially, as an intervener, as a resource to report harassment. The Allies are a diverse group of scientists committed to acting as mentors, advocates, and liaisons. The Winter 2015 AAS meeting was the first meeting that had Astronomy Allies, and Astronomy Allies provided a website for information, as well as a twitter, email, and phone number for anyone who needs our help or would like more information. We posted about the Astronomy Allies on the Women In Astronomy blog, and this program resonates with many people: either they want to help, or they have experienced harassment in the past and don't want to see it in the future. Harassment may not happen to most conference participants, but it's wrong, it's against the AAS anti-harassment policy ( http://aas.org/policies/anti-harassment-policy ), it can be very damaging, and if it happens to even one person, that is unacceptable. We intend to improve the culture at conferences to make it so that harassers feel they can't get away with their unprofessional behavior.

    Full Text Available Les recherches récentes en histoire sociale et culturelle sur la Grande Guerre s’intéressent notamment à l’étude de la production littéraire, médiatique et iconographique comme pratique signifiante et représentative de l’expérience individuelle et collective de la guerre, ce que les historiens identifient comme les « cultures de guerres ». Ces « cultures de guerre » sont analysées, entre autres, à partir de la presse, dont la situation privilégiée au carrefour de l’opinion publique et de la propagande gouvernementale, en fait un objet d’étude significatif pour mieux comprendre la mobilisation des populations dans le cadre d’une guerre totale. À partir d’une approche interdisciplinaire, notre article a pour principal objectif de dégager et d’analyser les stéréotypes qui règlent les représentations de l’allié russe dans la presse illustrée française durant la Grande Guerre. Plus précisément, nous voulons interroger l’évolution des représentations de la figure du combattant russe afin de dégager dans quelle mesure il y a eu rupture ou permanence des représentations, en fonction de l’évolution du contexte historique entre 1914 et 1920.Recent research in the social and cultural history of the Great War views literary, media, and iconographic productions as a significant aspect of the individual and collective war experience, and scholars see these productions as forming « war cultures ». Historians analyze these « war cultures » partly through the press, which position at the crossroads of government propaganda and public opinion makes it an effective tool for understanding popular mobilization in the context of a total war. Through an interdisciplinary approach, this article aims to identify the stereotypes that governed representations of the Russian ally in the French illustrated press during the Great War. Specifically, we examine the evolution the representations of the Russian

  5. Clinical research in allied health.

    1994-01-01

    Allied health professionals in nutrition and medical dietetics, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech-language pathology and audiology play both unique and key cross-cutting roles in the furtherance of clinical research. Clinical research in nutrition and medical dietetics uniquely focuses on food nutrient intake and the metabolic utilization of nutrients. Clinical research in occupational therapy has a special focus on the relationship of impairment to disability, the adaptation to disability and the maximization of function. Physical therapy clinical research uniquely targets movement dysfunction and its evaluation and treatment within the context of quality and effective care. Clinical research in speech-language pathology and audiology is singular in its focus on deafness and hearing disorders, voice, speech, language and related disorders, and intersections among these and other neurological and physical conditions. Thus, all of these disciplines are making unique contributions to clinical research. Clinical research in these allied health professions is much more than the above specific foci. Inasmuch as these disciplines are rooted in practice, their contributions to research are inherently clinical. Many, if not most, of these contributions represent further validations of clinical practice or its underlying knowledge base. This means that, at a macro level, clinical research in allied health is very much "applied" research. Within allied health clinical research, this emphasis is redoubled at the "person," or individual level, where considerable attention is given to concepts of function and effectiveness. Clinical research in allied health has played a key cross-cutting role through its emphasis on collaboration. Possibly due to their professional maturation within multidisciplinary academic units, allied health professionals have demonstrated a level of comfort with multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaborations unique within many

  11. Thermo capillary and buoyancy convection in a fluid locally heated on its free surface; Convection thermocapillaire et thermogravitaire dans un fluide chauffe localement sur sa surface libre

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Favre, E.

    1997-09-26

    coupled buoyancy and thermo-capillary convection lead to a convective motion of the interface liquid/gas which drastically changes the heat and mass transfer across the liquid layer. Two experiments were considered, depending on the fluid: oil or mercury. The liquid is set in a cooled cylindrical vessel, and heated by a heat flux across the center of the free surface. The basic flow, in the case of oil, is a torus. When the heat parameter increases, a stationary flow appears as petals or rays when the aspect ratio. The lateral confinement selects the azimuthal wavelength. In the case of petals-like flow, a sub-critical Hopf bifurcation is underlined. The turbulence is found to be `weak`, even for the largest values of the Marangoni number (Ma = 1.3 10{sup 5}). In the case of mercury, the thermo-capillary effect is reduced to zero to impurities at the surface which have special trajectories we describe and compare to a simpler experiment. Only the buoyancy forces induce a unstationary, weakly turbulent flow as soon as the heating power exceeds 4W (Ra = 4.5 10{sup 3}, calculated with h = 1 mm). The past part concerns the analysis of the effect on the flow of the boundary conditions, the geometry, the Prandtl number and the buoyancy force with the help of the literature. Results concerning heat transfer, in particular the exponent of the law Nusselt number vs. heating power, were compared with available data. (author) 115 refs.

    The design of plasma facing components is crucial for plasma performance in next fusion reactors. These elements will be submitted to very high heat flux. They will be actively water-cooled by swirl tubes in the subcooled boiling regime. High heat flux experiments were conducted in order to analyse the heat transfer and to evaluate the critical heat flux. Water-cooled mock-ups were one-side heated by an electron beam gun for different thermal-hydraulic conditions. The critical heat flux was detected by an original method based on the isotherm modification on the heated surface. The wall heat transfer law including forced convection and subcooled boiling regimes was established. Numerical calculations of the material heat transfer conduction allowed the non-homogeneous distribution of the wall temperature and of the wall heat flux to be evaluated. The critical heat flux value was defined as the wall maximum heat flux. A critical heat flux model based on the liquid sublayer dryout under a vapor blanket was established. A good agreement with test results was found. (author) 197 refs.

  18. Overview of allied health personnel shortages.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Elwood, T W

    1991-01-01

    Upon learning that 95% of all fatal traffic accidents occur within three miles of one's home, an acquaintance moved to another residence four miles away and is still alive today. The world might be a much better place if most obstacles could be overcome this handily. Unfortunately, the problem of allied health personnel shortages appears to be more intractable. Because the situation is complicated in nature, it is most unlikely that any single remedy will suffice. Public and private interests have joined forces in many states, but it is abundantly clear that conventional market forces are unlikely to prevail. These forces usually focus on supply and demand. While shortages may cause entry-level salaries to rise, they do not stimulate academic institutions to increase their output nor will they affect the availability of research funding and/or doctoral training programs. Current market forces compel health facilities to engage in bidding wars for scarce manpower. Although individual job seekers may benefit, this practice does not increase the number of training program graduates. The federal government has a decisive role to play in assuring an adequate number of personnel to meet this nation's health care needs. Assistance is necessary in the form of providing entry- and advanced-level traineeships to accelerate the flow of part-time students pursuing doctorates, and to fund model student recruitment/retention projects. This role should encompass attracting students (particularly from minority and underserved portions of the population) to academic programs. The Disadvantaged Minority Health Improvement Act, PL 101-527 that was enacted in November 1990, contains only minimal provisions for allied health. Eligibility for student scholarship assistance is restricted to a small handful of allied health professions. Moreover, allied health is not eligible for the loan repayment program aimed at individuals who agree to serve on the faculty of health professions

  20. Allied, MGC link on cyanate esters

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the latest of a line of joint ventures in its plastics business, Allied Signal has reached agreement with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) to jointly develop thermoset cyanate ester resins and blends. The deal will involve further development of Allied Signal's Primaset phenol-formaldehyde cyanate ester resins, a new entrant in the thermoset arena. Although the Primaset resins were discovered in the 1960s, this would be the first time they are available commercially. The deal will marry Primaset technology with MGC's Skylex bisphenol A cyanate ester resins, says Fred DiAntonis, director/advanced materials at Allied Signal. The two firms are looking at marketing blends of the two materials. The potential market for these resins, used commercially by the electronics industry in printed circuit boards and by the aerospace industry in composites, is significant, says Robert P. Viarengo, Allied Signal president/performance materials. By aligning ourselves with MGC, the world leader in cyanate ester resin, we anticipate moving forward aggressively. The main competitor is Ciba, which acquired bisphenol A cyanate ester resins with its purchase of Rhone-Poulenc's high temperature resins business. DiAntonis estimates the market for cyanate ester resins could be worth $150 million by the end of the decade, although development costs have been in the tens of millions of dollars range

  2. Strategies for Engaging Men as Anti-Violence Allies: Implications for Ally Movements

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2010-11-01

    Full Text Available As ally movements become an increasingly prevalent element of social justice efforts, research is needed that illuminates effective strategies to initially engage members of privileged social groups in anti-oppression work. This study presents descriptive findings regarding ally engagement strategies and barriers from a qualitative study of a particular ally movement – male anti-violence against women activism. Twenty-seven men who recently initiated involvement in an organization or event dedicated to ending sexual or domestic violence were interviewed regarding their perceptions of effective approaches to reaching and engaging other men in anti-violence work. Participants viewed tailored engagement strategies that tap into existing social networks, that allow men to see themselves reflected in anti-violence movements, and that help men make personal, emotional connections to the issue of violence as most effective. Implications for engaging men in the project of ending violence against women, and for ally movements more generally are discussed.

    I was fortunate to enjoy the advice of K. G. Emeleus during my graduate studies and for many years afterwards. He introduced me to the papers of Will Allis and later I was privileged to correspond with Professor Allis. At this time I had moved from the Queens university environment to work at a large Air Force base. There I have worked with a lot of smart people, including several who also come to the GEC each year to be refreshed and calibrated. A personal overview is presented on a few of the many roles that atomic, molecular and optical physics, including gaseous electronics, play in programs of the Air Force Research Laboratory and subsequently on AF systems and operations. While there have been misses, overall there have been many successes with impacts that provide more effective systems, as recent experiences have demonstrated. Some example studies, involving primarily electron collision physics, successful and unsuccessful in being chosen for application, are discussed.

    2015-01-01

    Imagine you are a grad student, at your first conference, and a prominent senior scientist shows interest in your work, and he makes things get way too personal? What would you do? Would you report it? Or would you decide, after a few other instances of harassment, that maybe you shouldn't pursue astronomy? Harassment is under-reported, the policies can be difficult to understand or hard to find, and it can be very intimidating as a young scientist to report it to the proper individuals. The Astronomy Allies Program is designed to help you with these sorts of problems. We are a group of volunteers that will help by doing the following: provide safe walks home during the conference, someone to talk to confidentially, as an intervener, as a resource to report harassment. The Allies are a diverse group of scientists committed to acting as mentors, advocates, and liaisons. The Winter 2015 AAS meeting will be the first meeting that has Astronomy Allies, and Astronomy Allies will provide a website for information, as well as a twitter, email, and phone number for anyone who needs our help or would like more information. We posted about the Astronomy Allies on the Women In Astronomy blog, and this program resonates with many people: either they want to help, or they have experienced harassment in the past and don't want to see it in the future. Harassment may not happen to most conference participants, but it's wrong, it's against the AAS anti-harassment policy ( http://aas.org/policies/anti-harassment-policy ), it can be very damaging, and if it happens to even one person, that is unacceptable. We intend to improve the culture at conferences to make it so that harassers feel they can't get away with their unprofessional behavior.

Shopian, recently created hilly district of Kashmir valley, Jammu and Kashmir is surrounded by the lofty mountains of Pir-Panjal range. More than half area of district is occupied by different forests, subalpine, alpine and mountainous zones. Great altitudinal variation, adequate rainfall, high forest cover, large number of streams, springs and topographic variations render the district worthy for supporting rich fern flora. Therefore, the current study was aimed to undertake in-depth systematic survey of different habitats of Shopian for the collection of diversity of pteridophytes. Specimens were collected during 2010, 2011 and 2012 growing seasons from June to November. A total 81 species of ferns and fern allies belonging 27 genera and 11 families were reported. The dominant families of the region are Dryopteridaceae (25 species followed by Woodsiaceae (16 species, Aspleniaceae (13 species and Pteridaceae (12 species. Similarly, the dominant genera collected from here are Dryopteris (14 species, Asplenium (13, Polystichum (11 species and Athyrium (6 species.

    2015-07-01

    Research on heterosexual allies has focused on heterosexual identity development models and pathways to ally activism. The positive aspects or positive experiences of identifying as an ally to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) identified individuals and communities have received little attention. Using an online survey of participants recruited from LGBT ally related social media, we collected open-ended responses to a question about the positive aspects of self-identifying as a heterosexual ally. A final analytic sample of 292 self-identified male and female heterosexual adults (age 18-71, M = 33.47, SD = 13.32) provided responses that generated 8 themes. Positive aspects of being a heterosexual ally were: (a) increased knowledge and awareness, (b) upholding values of justice, (c) beneficial individual relationships, (d) community belonging, (e) educating others, (f) being a role model, (g) using social privilege, and (h) speaking out and taking a stand. The findings suggest that being a heterosexual ally is rewarding and may enhance individual well-being. These findings provide information that may contribute to effective ally development efforts.

    Santini, Francesco; Sorenson, Laurie; Alfaro, Michael E

    2016-06-01

    Bodianus wrasses comprise one of the most diverse genera of labrids. Also known as hogfishes due to the presence of a large pig-like snout, Bodianus species are found in warm waters across the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. To this date no densely sampled molecular phylogeny is available for this group, and a single morphological study did not include two genera (Clepticus and Semicossyphus) that have been shown to belong within hogfishes by molecular studies. Our study produced the first multi-locus molecular phylogeny of Bodianus species, and corroborated the non-monophyly of this group without the inclusion of the Creole wrasse (Clepticus) and the sheepheads (Semicossyphus). We further showed that hogfishes and allies started to radiate during the Early Miocene, ∼20Ma, and that while this group originated in the Indo-western and South-western Pacific, it experienced multiple episodes during which it successfully invaded different geographic regions and/or ocean basins.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Measles, a virus borne droplet infection, is one of the leading causes of death among young children worldwide despite presence of a safe and cost-effective vaccine. Objective of our study was to identify the characteristics of measles patients admitted to Allied Hospitals, Rawalpindi. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted amongst patients admitted with measles in paediatric units of Rawalpindi Medical College Allied Hospitals, Rawalpindi. A standard proforma was used to collect data from the respondents. Results: A total of 55 patients (mean age-29.36 months) with measles were included in the study. 65.5% children were vaccinated while 34.5% were not vaccinated. Among those vaccinated 14 were male. Out of the vaccinated children 52.6% were residents of middle class areas, 31.6% lower middle class area, 10.5% upper middle class areas and 5.3% rural areas. In 55.0% of patients who were vaccinated with at least one dose of measles at nine month of age the estimated calendar months of vaccination was March to April while in 30% the overall climatic period of vaccination was of summer (May to September). Twenty one study subjects were exposed to a case of measles in the family and thirty five out of all developed at least one known complication of the disease. Pneumonia was the most common complication reported in patients (63.6%) followed by diarrhoea (27.3%). Conclusion: Majority of the patients suffering from measles were not vaccinated and the most common reason for failure to immunize children was lack of awareness. Educated and well off fathers were more likely to get their children immunized. The vaccinated children who developed measles majority were vaccinated during months of March, April and May. (author)

    Sex and gender differences in rehabilitation are important because more than half of patients seen by allied health professionals are female. Sex- and gender-specific curricula should be audited to enhance interprofessional education in women's health. The research question was: What is the extent of information about sex and gender differences that is included in selected allied health professions curricula? Student scholars from allied health programs audited courses in real time for references to sex and gender differences. The data were analyzed using content analysis. The emphasis of instruction included primarily statements of facts for the physical and occupational therapy programs and brief discussions in the athletic training program. There was a significant difference among the categories of emphasis for the programs (X2 = 391.23, panalysis of sex and gender differences in selected allied health professions. No textual inferences were made, but the study reported on the topics discussed and the extent of the sharing of information. PMID:27585612

  6. Effect of Impurities and Cerium on Stress Concentration Sensitivity of Al-Li Based Alloys

    孟亮; 田丽

    2002-01-01

    A notch sensitivity factor was derived in order to evaluate the stress concentration sensitivity of Al-Li based alloys. The factor values for the Al-Li alloy sheets containing various contents of impurities and cerium addition were evaluated by determining the mechanical properties. It is found that the impurities Fe, Si, Na and K significantly enhance the stress concentration sensitivity of the alloys 2090 and 8090, whereas cerium addition reduces the stress concentration sensitivity to a certain degree for the high strength alloys. However, an excess amount of cerium addition in the high ductility alloy 1420 can significantly increase the stress concentration sensitivity. As compared with conventional aluminum alloys, the Al-Li based alloys generally show high stress concentration sensitivity. Therefore, a special attention must be paid to this problem in the practical application of Al-Li based alloys.

  9. Bounds for Hecke eigenforms and their allied L-functions

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zhang, Qing

    We consider Hecke eigenforms and their allied L-functions from three aspects in this thesis. First we generalize the Iwaniec's spectral large sieve estimates of Maass cusp form to the local version for all congruence groups of level q. Our approach is based on an inequality for a general bilinear form involving Kloosterman sums and Bessel functions. The exceptional eigenvalues emerge in the course of the proof. In the second part, we extend Luo's result to prove a general optimal bound for L4-norms of the dihedral Maass forms associated to Hecke's grossencharacters of a fixed real quadratic field. Given a fixed quadratic field with discriminant D, we remove the condition that the narrow class number of K is 1. The key ingredients are Watson and Ichino's formula and the local spectral large sieve inequality established in the first part. Finally we obtain a long equation intended to establish an upper bound for the second moment of symmetric square L-functions. Petersson trace formula plays an important role and we study thoroughly an analogue of Estermann series using Hurwitz zeta function and establish its meromorphic extension and functional equation. This work provides a useful approach to the further study for the central value of the symmetric square L-functions.

    2014-01-01

    In order to determine Caucasian allied health student racial attitudes towards the African American population, students and faculty of a Southern school of allied health professions were surveyed using the Racial Argument Scale (RAS). A one way ANOVA found a significant difference between allied health programs, p = .008, and post hoc testing found the Occupational Therapy Program's scores to be significantly lower (less negative towards Blacks) than the Physical Therapy and Physician Assistant Program's scores (p = .008 and p = .041 respectively). Student scores overall were significantly higher than faculty scores on the RAS (p = .014). The Speech-Language Pathology, Physician Assistant, and Physical Therapy Programs' scores as well the overall allied health student scores were found to be significantly higher than the population mean, thus indicating a higher negativity towards African Americans. The overall results of this study indicate that negative racial bias may be a serious problem in some allied health programs. Future instruction in cultural competency in allied health programs should address racial bias specifically, taking into account cognitive-perceptual errors that may perpetuate negative racial attitudes.

  16. Quality improvement – rival or ally of practice development?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gavin Lavery

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available The majority of nurses, doctors, allied health professionals and other healthcare staff possess a strong desire to provide the best possible care and experience for their patients. Unfortunately, this sometimes falls short of what was planned or intended (Institute of Medicine, 2001, p 23. The gap between care intended and care delivered can be explained by problems with systems and processes and/or people and culture. The narrowing of this gap is the focus of many strategies, methodologies and approaches. Practice development is described as ‘an activity focused on developing people and practice for the ultimate purpose of achieving high-quality person-centred care’ and a ‘methodology that aims to achieve effective workplace cultures that are person-centred’ (Shaw, 2012; Manley et al., 2014. Practice development undoubtedly has a strong focus on people and culture and the potential to change processes and systems. Another approach, widely referred to as quality improvement, aims to improve safety, effectiveness and person-centredness in healthcare using principles proven effective in other industries such as manufacturing – notably car manufacturing (Toyota, oil production, nuclear power and aviation. The fundamental principles of quality improvement for healthcare include making care reliable (every patient receiving care as intended every time, using well-designed processes and reducing variation (agreeing a consistent way to provide care. At first glance this may appear to be an approach suited only to systems and processes. However, better processes, designed by those who use them, resulting in fewer errors and less re-working or working around problems, can reduce stress on staff, offer greater job satisfaction with improved morale and free up time to provide person-centred care. In his report, A Promise to Learn – a Commitment to Act (2013, p 24, Professor Don Berwick says: ‘Mastery of quality and patient safety sciences and

    2012-02-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Modern healthcare managers are faced with pressure to deliver effective, efficient services within the context of fixed budget constraints. Managers are required to make decisions regarding the skill mix of the workforce particularly when staffing new services. One measure used to identify numbers and mix of staff in healthcare settings is workforce ratio. The aim of this study was to identify workforce ratios in nine allied health professions and to identify whether these measures are useful for planning allied health workforce requirements. Methods A systematic literature search using relevant MeSH headings of business, medical and allied health databases and relevant grey literature for the period 2000-2008 was undertaken. Results Twelve articles were identified which described the use of workforce ratios in allied health services. Only one of these was a staffing ratio linked to clinical outcomes. The most comprehensive measures were identified in rehabilitation medicine. Conclusion The evidence for use of staffing ratios for allied health practitioners is scarce and lags behind the fields of nursing and medicine.

    Full Text Available AbstrakInfeksi cacing masih merupakan masalah kesehatan di Indonesia dan negara berkembang lainnya. Penyakit ini sering terjadi di daerah dengan higienisitas dan sanitasi yang masih kurang. Respon imun tubuh host terhadap cacing ini mirip dengan respon tubuh terhadap penyakit alergi. Respon pada penyakit kecacingan dan alergi ini merupakan respon Thelper2 yaitu diferensiasi dan polariasasi sel limfosit T lebih dominan pada Th2. Pada kenyataannya, ditinjau dari segi epidemiologi, penyakit kecacingan dan penyakit alergi terdapat pada daerah yang sangat berbeda. Prevalensi penyakit alergi cenderung lebih banyak terjadi di daerah maju dengan higiene dan sanitasi yang baik. Keadaan ini menimbulkan pertanyaan apakah kecacingan mempunyai efek proteksi terhadap manifestasi klinis berbagai macam penyakit alergi. Hygiene hypothesis merupakan teori yang relevan dalam menjawab pertanyaan ini. Mekanisme yang dapat menerangkan fenomena ada adalah saturasi sel mast, penghambatan oleh IgG4 dan modified Th2 response.Kata kunci: infeksi cacing, alergi, respon Th2AbstractHelminthiasis is still unsolved problem in Indonesia and other developing countries. This disease is frequently occurred in poor personal hygiene and environmental sanitation. The human immune response to helminth infections is similar with response to allergic disease. These disease present T helper2 (Th2 response which characterized dominant differentiation and proliferation of Th2. In fact, epidemiology study shows that they are occurred in different type of region. High prevalence of allergic disease is found in modern country which is well established sanitation and good personal hygiene. This condition raises fundamental question whether helminthiasis is associated with protection against allergic disease. Hygiene hypothesis is a theory that can explain this phenomen. The mechanisms are mast cell saturation, IgG4 blocking and modified Th2.Keywords: helminthiasis, allergy, Th2 response

    I first met Dan Johnson in early 1975 as I was interviewing for an engineering job with Henning von Gierke's bioengineering and bionics laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. From the very beginning Dan was always direct and forthright. Over the ensuing next 27 years my knowledge and respect of Dan constantly grew. This presentation will review Dan's technical and personal contributions while at the laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. He was instrumental in the development of a national noise exposure criteria with the equal-energy-rule, an accurate single number hearing protector attenuation measure based on ``C-A,'' an impulse noise exposure criteria, a longitudinal study of hearing loss in children, development of noise dosimeters, and description of hearing damage risk from nonoccupational noise exposures such as disco's, bowling alleys, lawn mowers, and school buses. Dan has had a significant effect on my career. I and the many people who knew him at the laboratory miss him greatly.

    The intergranular corrosion and exfoliation corrosion of 2195 Al-Li alloy treated by multi-step heating-rate controlled aging (MSRC)are studied.The corrosion features of 2195 Al-Li alloys which are respectively treated by high-temperature nucleation MSRC(H-M)and low-temperature nucleation MSRC(L-M)are contrasted.And the corrosion mechanism of 2195 Al-Li alloy is also discussed from the viewpoint of microstructure(types,distribution,etc.)of the strengthening phase.The results show that 2195 Al-Li alloy after H-M is more susceptible to intergranular corrosion and exfoliation corrosion than that of alloy after L-M.The degree of intergranular corrosion increases with the increase of predeformation amount and the surface parallel to the rolling direction is more prone to exfoliation corrosion.The main reason of intergranular corrosion and exfoliation corrosion is the formation of corrosion galvanic couples among T1 phase,θ' phase and grain boundary precipitate-free zones(PFZ).

    2014-11-01

    Full Text Available The issues on the diplomacy in public opinion and public consciousness is becoming increasingly important in modern domestic research on the history of Russia’s foreign policy. The article analyzes the works devoted to the social perception of Russia’s relations with allies in the Entente. The attention is paid to the historiography of the foreign political ideas of liberal and conservative leaders represented in political discourse, nonfiction works and periodicals. Liberals and conservatives were not only the object of public judgements – they formed them as well. A significant range of works deals with the problem of the relationship between the Entente allies and the Russian population. The social perception of England and France is considered by researchers both at the level of direct political, economic and military contacts, and based on an abstract image of an ally in the mass consciousness. The evolution of public perceptions of the allies was determined by the situation in the country and on the fronts and by the role of foreign stereotypes. The author analyzes the interconnection of alliance issue with the national interests of Russia, reveals research approaches to the study of the development of Patriotic and revolutionary moods, traces the differences in the estimates of England and France. The present study complements the research on diplomatic history, and yet represents a separate research problem.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Knowledge translation (KT aims to close the gap between knowledge and practice in order to realize the benefits of research through (a improved health outcomes, (b more effective health services and products, and (c strengthened healthcare systems. While there is some understanding of strategies to put research findings into practice within nursing and medicine, we have limited knowledge of KT strategies in allied health professions. Given the interprofessional nature of healthcare, a lack of guidance for supporting KT strategies in the allied health professions is concerning. Our objective in this study is to systematically review published research on KT strategies in five allied health disciplines. Methods A medical research librarian will develop and implement search strategies designed to identify evidence that is relevant to each question of the review. Two reviewers will perform study selection and quality assessment using standard forms. For study selection, data will be extracted by two reviewers. For quality assessment, data will be extracted by one reviewer and verified by a second. Disagreements will be resolved through discussion or third party adjudication. Within each profession, data will be grouped and analyzed by research design and KT strategies using the Effective Practice and Organisation of Care Review Group classification scheme. An overall synthesis across professions will be conducted. Significance A uniprofessional approach to KT does not represent the interprofessional context it targets. Our findings will provide the first systematic overview of KT strategies used in allied health professionals' clinical practice, as well as a foundation to inform future KT interventions in allied healthcare settings.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Chiropractors use a variety of supine and prone leg checking procedures. Some, including the Allis test, purport to distinguish anatomic from functional leg length inequality. Although the reliability and to a lesser extent the validity of some leg checking procedures has been assessed, little is known on the Allis test. The present study mathematically models the test under a variety of hypothetical clinical conditions. In our search for historical and clinical information on the Allis test, nomenclatural and procedural issues became apparent. Methods The test is performed with the subject carefully positioned in the supine position, with the head, pelvis, and feet centered on the table. After an assessment for anatomic leg length inequality, the knees are flexed to approximately 90°. The examiner then sights the short leg side knee sequentially from both the foot and side of the table, noting its relative locations: both its height from the table and Y axis position. The traditional interpretation of the Allis test is that a low knee identifies a short tibia and a cephalad knee a short femur. Assuming arbitrary lengths and a tibio/femoral ratio of 1/1.26, and a hip to foot distance that placed the knee near 90°, we trigonometrically calculated changes in the location of the right knee that would result from hypothetical reductions in tibial and femoral length. We also modeled changes in the tibio/femoral ratio that did not change overall leg length, and also a change in hip location. Results The knee altitude diminishes with either femoral or tibial length reduction. The knee shifts cephalad when the femoral length is reduced, and caudally when the tibial length is reduced. Changes in the femur/tibia ratio also influence knee position, as does cephalad shifting of the hip. Conclusion The original Allis (aka Galeazzi test was developed to identify gross hip deformity in pediatric patients. The extension of this test to

    The security of use for Al-Li alloy will be greatly influenced by the damage degree of plastic deformation within it at high temperature . Based on continuum damage mechanics theory, the damage evolution of Al-5.44Mg-2.15Li-0.12Zr alloy during plastic deforming at high temperature is simulated by using the damage evolution model of high temperature plastic deformation. The changing rule of its inner damage with deformation temperature, strain rate and strain is gained in this paper. The equation of damage evolution for high temperature plastic deformation is developed, providing an academic basis for the technology of plastic process of Al-Li alloys.

  7. Retention and release of tritium in aluminum clad, Al-Li alloys

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Tritium retention in and release from aluminum clad, aluminum-lithium alloys is modeled from experimental and operational data developed during the thirty plus years of tritium production at the Savannah River Site. The model assumes that tritium atoms, formed by the 6Li(n,α)3He reaction, are produced in solid solution in the Al-Li alloy. Because of the low solubility of hydrogen isotopes in aluminum alloys, the irradiated Al-Li rapidly becomes supersaturated in tritium. Newly produced tritium atoms are trapped by lithium atoms to form a lithium tritide. The effective tritium pressure required for trap or tritide stability is the equilibrium decomposition pressure of tritium over a lithium tritide-aluminum mixture. The temperature dependence of tritium release is determined by the permeability of the cladding to tritium and the local equilibrium at the trap sites. This model is used to calculate tritium release from aluminum clad, aluminum-lithium alloys. 9 refs., 3 figs

    2004-07-01

    Owing to unprecedented mechanization, everything to do with petroleum supplies had a crucial role to play in World War II. In the wake of Operation Overlord, the battle grounds of Normandy saw technologies deployed on a huge scale. Logistics were a major problem whether fighting in the air or on the ground, with oil and fuel supplies a critical element. With no fuel, this gigantic military operation could never have been carried through, for with aircraft grounded and tanks grinding to a halt, all would soon have been lost. Accordingly, the Allies made bold logistical plans, which nevertheless had shortcomings calling for improvisation. The cross-Channel pipeline PLUTO, the impressive stream of road traffic known as the Red Ball Express, rapid repairs to the railroads, trains of barges on the Seine, DC-3s transporting oil and fuel, were all pieces in the jigsaw puzzle bringing supplies to Allied units on their way across Normandy in 1944.

    The corrosion behavior and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy ( EIS) features of 8090 Al-Li alloys in EXCO solution were investigated, and the EIS was simulated using an equivalent circuit. At the beginning of immersion in EXCO solution, the EIS is comprised by a depressed capacitive arc at high-mediate frequency and an inductive arc at low frequency, and the inductive component decreases and disappears with immersion time. Once exfoliation or severe pitting corrosion is produced, two capacitivearcs appear in the EIS. These two capacitive arcs are originated from the two parts of the corroded alloy surface, the original flat alloy surface and the new inter-face exposed to the aggressive EXCO solution due to the exfoliation or pitting corrosion.Some corrosion development features of 8090 Al-Li alloys in EXCO solution can be obtained through simulated EIS information.

There are a number of drivers for this, including the changing demographics of patients and health professionals, changing working patterns and mobility of the health workforce, evolving models of care, emerging evidence base, altering funding models, and the need to underpin health care service delivery with safety, effectiveness, patient centeredness, efficiency, equity, and timeliness. It is in this time of change that role extension within health disciplines is seen as an important tool to meet some of these challenges. Role extension is viewed as a skills escalator, where practitioners move up the skills escalator within the scope of their discipline, to advance it and then, with training, extend it. Within allied health, in some disciplines, advanced and extended scope of practice initiatives have mushroomed. Often these initiatives have been ad hoc, and opportunistically created in response to local needs and requirements. As these initiatives are local and context-dependent, to date there is very little uniformity or congruency between these initiatives. This has led to variability in implementation, lack of rigorous evaluations and, ultimately, poor long-term sustainability. In this paper, we reflect on a number of key issues, drawing on our own experiences in undertaking such initiatives, which need to be taken into account when considering advanced and extended scope of practice for allied health.Keywords: allied health, skill escalation, extended scope of practice, advanced scope of practice

Extended scope roles for allied health professionals is one strategy that could be undertaken by health care services to meet this demand. This review builds upon an earlier paper published in 2006 on the evidence relating to the impact extended scope roles have on health care services. Methods: A systematic review of the literature focused on extended scope roles in three allied health professional groups, ie, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech pathology, was conducted. The search strategy mirrored an earlier systematic review methodology and was designed to include articles from 2005 onwards. All peer-reviewed published papers with evidence relating to effects on patients, other professionals, or the health service were included. All papers were critically appraised prior to data extraction. Results: A total of 1,000 articles were identified by the search strategy; 254 articles were screened for relevance and 21 progressed to data extraction for inclusion in the systematic review. Conclusion: Literature supporting extended scope roles exists; however, despite the earlier review calling for more robust evaluations regarding the impact on patient outcomes, cost-effectiveness, training requirements, niche identification, or sustainability, there appears to be limited research reported on the topic in the last 7 years. The evidence available suggests that extended scope practice allied health practitioners could be a cost-effective and consumer

    Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) technologies are rapidly developing, lowering cost, and technology barriers for their use in numerous applications. This review and commentary summarizes relevant literature in allied fields and evaluates potential application and utility of UAS technology in the discipline of occupational hygiene. Disciplines closely related to occupational hygiene are moving to investigate potential uses--and in some cases--already employing this technology for research or commercial purposes. The literature was reviewed to formulate a cross-sectional picture of how UAS technology is being used in these closely allied disciplines which could inform or guide potential use in occupational hygiene. Discussed are UAS applications in environmental monitoring, emergency response, epidemiology, safety, and process optimization. A rapidly developing state of the art indicates that there is potential utility for this technology in occupational hygiene. Benefits may include cost savings, time savings, and averting hazardous environments via remote sensing. The occupational hygiene community can look to allied fields to garner lessons and possible applications to their own practice. PMID:26180263

    Void fraction measurements were made in two phase flow boiling systems at high pressures in a uniformly heated, rectangular channel with a high aspect ratio. The local void fraction values were calculated from measurements of the absorption of a thin collimated X-ray beam (2 mm x 0.05 mm). The mean void fraction in a horizontal section results from integration of the local values across the section. At a fixed measuring station the quality and- void fraction were varied by changing the heat flux, flow rate and pressure systematically. Two channels were used differing in length and thickness (150.8 cm x 5.3 cm x 0.2 cm and the significant features of this study are: -1) The void fraction measurements are among the first obtained at such high pressure (80 to 140 kg/cm{sup 2}); -2) In the experimental region under consideration the measurements are systematic and numerous enough to allow accurate interpolations: mass velocity from 50 to 220 g/cm{sup 2}.s, heat flux from 40 to 170 W/cm{sup 2} and calculated steam quality from -0.2 to 0.2; -3) Many tests were performed under local boiling conditions with the mean temperature of the fluid below the saturation temperature; and -4) These results were compared to the predictions of certain models presented in the literature and simple empirical formulae were developed to fit the experimental results.

Debate exists regarding the extent to which the activities of these groups should be formalized. Results drawn from an evaluation of a large-scale peer group supervision initiative are described. Analysis of 192 responses from professionals involved in peer groups indicates that participants in groups that used formal documentation – which adopted the tools provided in training, and particularly those that used formal evaluation of their groups – rated their groups as having better processes and greater impact. Interestingly, multidisciplinary peer groups were rated as having similar impacts, processes, and purposes as the more homogenous single-discipline groups. It is concluded that the implementation of formal arrangements enhances the processes and outcomes of peer groups implemented for professional support and clinical supervision. Multidisciplinary membership of such groups is perceived as equally beneficial as single-discipline groups.

    2003-01-01

    Fatigue property of Al-Li alloy after various heat treatment was investigated. The results show that the fatigue strength is enhanced with the age hardening progressing. Compared to the solution treated specimen, the fatigue limit is improved to 136% for sub-ageing treated specimen and 155% for peak-ageing treated specimen, respectively. In the meanwhile, the fatigue deformation becomes non-uniform with age hardening progressing. The fatigue cracks initiate and propagate prior from the un-uniform slip band, causing transgranular fracture or the mixed mode of transgranular fracture and intergranular fracture.

    The syntheses of hexadecylamine seed mediated Ag/M (M=Co, Ni, Pd and Pt) allied nanobimetallic particles were successfully carried out by the successive reduction of ligand capped metal ions with polyols, resulting in concomitant precipitation of some high index faceted hybrid Ag/M bimetal nanoparticles. The optical measurements revealed the existence of surface plasmon band and peak broadening that causes diffusion processes of the metal sols to decrease making it possible to monitor the changes spectrophotometrically. The bimetallic nanoparticles were characterized by X-ray diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and electron microscopy techniques which confirm the formation of alloyed clusters.

  8. Building alliances in unlikely places: progressive allies and the Tobacco Institute's coalition strategy on cigarette excise taxes.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Campbell, Richard B; Balbach, Edith D

    2009-07-01

    The tobacco industry often utilizes third parties to advance its policy agenda. One such utilization occurred when the industry identified organized labor and progressive groups as potential allies whose advocacy could undermine public support for excise tax increases. To attract such collaboration, the industry framed the issue as one of tax fairness, creating a labor management committee to provide distance from tobacco companies and furthering progressive allies' interests through financial and logistical support. Internal industry documents indicate that this strategic use of ideas, institutions, and interests facilitated the recruitment of leading progressive organizations as allies. By placing excise taxes within a strategic policy nexus that promotes mutual public interest goals, public health advocates may use a similar strategy in forging their own excise tax coalitions.

    Full Text Available Environmental pollution and degradation in urban Ghana has been on the increase as a result of the nations drive towards industrialization, a generally weak regulatory regime, and a lack of capacity to manage the environment. This situation is affecting the well-being and livelihood of affected communities. As part of an effort to address the issue, a thirteen (13 item questionnaire was designed and distributed to seventy (70 companies in the chemical and allied industry to solicit and analyze data and information on the their waste management situation. Forty-seven, representing 67.1%, of the distributed questionnaires were completed and returned. The responses were analyzed using tables, percentages and bar charts. The results revealed that while 80.9% of the respondents generate waste as a result of the operation of the plants, 23.3% directly dump their waste into the environment without any prior treatment. Only one company was found that incinerate its waste, and only four (8.5% had comprehensive waste water treatment plants. The low numbers of companies treating the waste they generate prior to disposal means that the chemical and allied industry is contributing to the environmental pollution and degradation in the country.

  10. Superplastic deformation behavior of a rapidly solidified Al-Li alloy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    This study aims at investigating the superplastic behavior of a rapidly solidified Al-3Li-1Cu-0.5Mg-0.5Zr (mass%) alloy. Although rapidly solidified Al-Li alloys have the very fine grain structure desirable for improved superplasticity, unfavorable oxide morphology often prevents them from being superplastic. The results of superplastic deformation indicated that the proper thermo-mechanical treatment (TMT) of the alloy resulted in a much improved superplastic ductility, e.g. elongation of approximately 530%. In the case of testing at 520 C, optimum strain rate of forming was 4 x 10-2 s-1, which was one or two orders of magnitude higher than that of ingot cast Al-Li alloys. Such a high strain rate was thought to be quite advantageous for the practical application of superplastic deformation of the alloy. It could also be seen that the microstructure of the deformed alloy was similar to that of the as-received or the TMT treated alloy since continuous recrystallization was accomplished by subgrain growth and the growth of primary grains was prevented by fine β' (Al3Zr) particles.

Previous studies have investigated KT strategies in nursing and medicine; however, the present study is the first systematic review of the effectiveness of a variety of KT interventions in five allied health disciplines: dietetics, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy, and speech-language pathology. Methods A health research librarian developed and implemented search strategies in eight electronic databases (MEDLINE, CINAHL, ERIC, PASCAL, EMBASE, IPA, Scopus, CENTRAL using language (English and date restrictions (1985 to March 2010. Other relevant sources were manually searched. Two reviewers independently screened the titles and abstracts, reviewed full-text articles, performed data extraction, and performed quality assessment. Within each profession, evidence tables were created, grouping and analyzing data by research design, KT strategy, targeted behaviour, and primary outcome. The published descriptions of the KT interventions were compared to the Workgroup for Intervention Development and Evaluation Research (WIDER Recommendations to Improve the Reporting of the Content of Behaviour Change Interventions. Results A total of 2,638 articles were located and the titles and abstracts were screened.

    Full Text Available Menjadi seorang musisi tidak sekedar bermain musik atau menyanyi saja. Ada jenjang-jenjang yang akan dilewatidalam dunia musik, yang pada akhirnya setiap musisi dihadapkan kepada tanggung jawab dalam dunia tersebut. Di jaman ini, jika jenjang seorang musisi sudah tahap profesional, maka musik dan bisnis merupakan hal yang tidak terpisahkan. Jadi tidak heran jika ada banyak orang yang memimpikan untuk berkarier dalam bidang musik, bahkan telah men1adicita-cita sejak kecil.Jadi penting bagi musisi gerejawi benar-benar "mengkotakkan dirinya" terhadap persepsi yang dianut oleh musisi sekuler, bukan mencampurkannya. Hal ini sangat esensial, karena musisi gerejawi bukan melayani manusia melainkan oleh anugerah Tuhan dipercayakan pekerjaan ini. Dengan demikian pelayanan sebagai musisi gerejawi tidak tercemar oleh persepsi dari dunia musik sekuler. Selain itu musisi gerejawi dapat merefleksikan Tuhan yang disembahnya kepada dunia sekuler, karena tujuan dari semua yang dilakukannya adalah untuk kemuliaan nama Tuhan.

    2013-02-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background An economic evaluation of interventions for older people requires accurate assessment of costing and consideration of both acute and long-term services. Accurate information on the unit cost of allied health and community services is not readily available in Australia however. This systematic review therefore aims to synthesise information available in the literature on the unit costs of allied health and community services that may be utilised by an older person living in Australia. Method A comprehensive search of Medline, Embase, CINAHL, Google Scholar and Google was undertaken. Specialised economic databases were also reviewed. In addition Australian Government Department websites were inspected. The search identified the cost of specified allied health services including: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, dietetics, podiatry, counselling and home nursing. The range of community services included: personal care, meals on wheels, transport costs and domestic services. Where the information was not available, direct contact with service providers was made. Results The number of eligible studies included in the qualitative synthesis was fourty-nine. Calculated hourly rates for Australian allied health services were adjusted to be in equivalent currency and were as follows as follows: physiotherapy $157.75, occupational therapy $150.77, dietetics $163.11, psychological services $165.77, community nursing $105.76 and podiatry $129.72. Conclusions Utilisation of the Medicare Benefits Scheduled fee as a broad indicator of the costs of services, may lead to underestimation of the real costs of services and therefore to inaccuracies in economic evaluation.

    There is a lack of detailed evidence about the allied health workforce to inform proposed health care reforms. The South Australian Allied Health Workforce (SAAHW) survey collected data about the demographic characteristics, employment, education and recruitment and retention of allied health professionals in South Australia. The SAAHW questionnaire was widely distributed and 1539 responses were received. The average age of the sample was 40 years; males were significantly older than females, the latter making up 82% of respondents. Three-quarters of the sample worked in the city; 60% worked full time and the remainder in part-time, casual or locum positions. 'Work-life balance' was the most common attraction to respondents' current jobs and 'Better career prospects' the most common reason for intending to leave. Practice in a rural location was influenced by rural background and rural experience during training. A greater proportion of Generation Y (1982-2000) respondents intended to leave within 2 years than Generation X (1961-81) or Baby Boomers (1943-60). Most respondents were satisfied with their job, although some reported lack of recognition of their knowledge and skills. Systematic, robust allied health workforce data are required for integrated and sustainable primary health care delivery. PMID:23069367

    The Health-e-Learning project investigated the use of videoconferencing to deliver interprofessional clinical education to allied health students. Via a broadband link, students observed DVD footage of a clinical session then participated in discussion with the clinicians at the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH), Melbourne. The videoconference sessions were evaluated with respect to session content, the effectiveness of videoconferencing in providing interprofessional education (IPE) and the satisfaction with this as a supplement to facility-based placements. During the two semesters of the project, 28 videoconference sessions were conducted and 724 participants were surveyed. Student responses were positive with 84% indicating that these videoconferences increased their understanding of interprofessional practice (IPP) and 95% agreeing that the sessions were an effective learning tool. The results of this study support the use of videoconferencing to provide interprofessional clinical education. PMID:22458640

    Full Text Available The purpose of this study was to assess the mechanism of corporate meetings under the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA 1990. This review revealed two major types of meetings, public meetings convened by individuals or bodies to which there is an open invitation extended to any member of the public, and meetings of bodies of which the members are limited and known. However, the study was preoccupied with the second category. Therefore, there is the need for the various Legislatures of countries to work towards enacting effective and efficient company legislation to that effect. It is recommended among others that in Nigeria that the fine of N50 for every day of default to hold a statutory meeting should be reviewed to be punitive.

  3. Simultaneous SAS and 100 experiments on phase decomposition and reversion in Al-Li binary alloys

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Phase decomposition and reversion processes in Al-Li binary alloys have been studied by synchrotron-radiation small-angle/100 scattering experiments. The microstructure and its evolution obtained from small-angle scattering (SAS) and 100 profiles during phase decomposition and reversion are discussed. For the coarsening and reversion processes where a well defined interface between the δ' precipitates and the matrix can be expected, the information obtained from the SAS and 100 profiles was essentially the same. On the other hand, the structural information they convey can be different in the early stage of phase decomposition. The interpretation of the SAS and 100 intensities by means of an extension of the two-phase model has been examined. (orig.)

  4. Strength and microstructure of 2091 Al-Li alloy TIG welded joint

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2000-01-01

    The microstructure and tensile properties of TIG welding joints of 2091 Al-Li alloy were investigated both in as-welded and different postweld heat treatment condition. The results show that solution strengthening played an important role in the as-welded condition, though the precipitation strengthening δ' phase formed already in the as-welded weld metal, but its effect was not apparent due to the lower volume fraction of δ' phase. So the strength coefficient (φ) of the welded joint/base metal was 64%. After artificially aging heat treatment, the precipitation strengthening effect increased much due to the formation of more δ' phase and s' phase. Its φ value was increased up to 89%. The highest strength of the welded joints was obtained after solid solution and then artificially aged heat treatment. Due to the proper size of precipitation strengthening phases and their well distribution, the φ value was increased up to 98%.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Although allied health is considered to be one 'unit' of healthcare providers, it comprises a range of disciplines which have different training and ways of thinking, and different tasks and methods of patient care. Very few empirical studies on evidence-based practice (EBP have directly compared allied health professionals. The objective of this study was to examine the impact of a structured model of journal club (JC, known as iCAHE (International Centre for Allied Health Evidence JC, on the EBP knowledge, skills and behaviour of the different allied health disciplines. Methods A pilot, pre-post study design using maximum variation sampling was undertaken. Recruitment was conducted in groups and practitioners such as physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, social workers, psychologists, nutritionists/dieticians and podiatrists were invited to participate. All participating groups received the iCAHE JC for six months. Quantitative data using the Adapted Fresno Test (McCluskey & Bishop and Evidence-based Practice Questionnaire (Upton & Upton were collected prior to the implementation of the JC, with follow-up measurements six months later. Mean percentage change and confidence intervals were calculated to compare baseline and post JC scores for all outcome measures. Results The results of this study demonstrate variability in EBP outcomes across disciplines after receiving the iCAHE JC. Only physiotherapists showed statistically significant improvements in all outcomes; speech pathologists and occupational therapists demonstrated a statistically significant increase in knowledge but not for attitude and evidence uptake; social workers and dieticians/nutritionists showed statistically significant positive changes in their knowledge, and evidence uptake but not for attitude. Conclusions There is evidence to suggest that a JC such as the iCAHE model is an effective method for improving the EBP knowledge

    The challenge to increase the efficiency in food production level in Nigeria appears to be more urgent now than it has ever been in the history of the country. This is in view of the rapidly increasing population, the imminent decline in international economic and food aid and the need to conserve foreign exchange earnings through the production of raw materials to feed the growing industrial sector calls for urgent attention. The study was carried out in Ogun State. The descriptive statistics was used to determine the socio-economic characteristics of the respondents. The stochastic frontiers production analysis was applied to estimate the technical, allocative efficiency and economic efficiency among the fish farmers in the state. The results of economic efficiency revealed that fish farming is economically efficient with a range of between 55% and 84% efficiency level suggesting a favourable hope for the agro-allied industry such as poultry and cottage industries etc in the state. The result of hypothesis of inefficiency sources models showed that years of experience of fish farmers is significant at 1% probability level indicating the factor contributing to the fish farming experience in the state. Thus, the efficiency is due to the fact that farmers are experienced and fairly educated. On the basis of findings, policy is suggested to be directed towards the encouragement of entrepreneurs in fish farming in the state by providing enabling environment like credit facilities, public enlightenment programme and provision of social amenities like feeder roads, pipe-born water etc and given the fact that an increase in the level of formal education variable leads to less inefficiency, government policy should be focused on adopting the best technology (e.g. fast growing species and equipment) so as to improve the level of efficiency and investment which shall eventually lead to growth in output of fish farming and a lead to the establishment of agro-allied

    2010-01-01

    This study was designed to investigate leadership behaviors among chairpersons in allied health programs, based on their perceptions and the perceptions of faculty. Transformational, transactional, and laissez-faire leadership behaviors, as well as organizational outcomes of effectiveness, extra effort, and satisfaction, were measured using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ Form 5X-Short). A form developed by the researcher was used to gather demographic and program information. One hundred thirty-eight chairpersons and 327 faculty participated in the study. Major findings support the view that chairpersons primarily demonstrate leadership behaviors associated with transformational leadership factors and the contingent reward factor of transactional leadership. Statistically significant differences were found between the mean values of the self-perceptions of chairpersons and faculty for the transformational leadership factors of idealized influence (behavior), inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, individual consideration, and organizational outcomes of effectiveness and satisfaction. There was a statistically significant positive correlation, based on the self-perceptions of chairpersons and faculty, of the five transformational leadership factors with the three organizational outcomes and the transactional leadership factor of contingent reward with the organizational outcomes of effectiveness and extra effort. There was a statistically significant negative correlation, based on the perception of faculty, with the management-by-exception (passive) and laissez-faire leadership factors, and the organizational outcomes of effectiveness, extra effort and satisfaction. Transformational leadership has been identified as an effective strategy to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. Further development of the transformational leadership behaviors of chairpersons should be considered a priority for the allied health professions. PMID

  10. Effects of Annealing Process on the Formability of Friction Stir Welded Al-Li Alloy 2195 Plates

    Chen, Po-Shou; Bradford, Vann; Russell, Carolyn

    2011-01-01

    Large rocket cryogenic tank domes have typically been fabricated using Al-Cu based alloys like Al-Cu alloy 2219. The use of aluminum-lithium based alloys for rocket fuel tank domes can reduce weight because aluminum-lithium alloys have lower density and higher strength than Al-Cu alloy 2219. However, Al-Li alloys have rarely been used to fabricate rocket fuel tank domes because of the inherent low formability characteristic that make them susceptible to cracking during the forming operations. The ability to form metal by stretch forming or spin forming without excessive thinning or necking depends on the strain hardening exponent "n". The stain hardening exponent is a measure of how rapidly a metal becomes stronger and harder. A high strain hardening exponent is beneficial to a material's ability to uniformly distribute the imposed strain. Marshall Space Flight Center has developed a novel annealing process that can achieve a work hardening exponent on the order of 0.27 to 0.29, which is approximately 50% higher than what is typically obtained for Al-Li alloys using the conventional method. The strain hardening exponent of the Al-Li alloy plates or blanks heat treated using the conventional method is typically on the order of 0.17 to 0.19. The effects of this novel annealing process on the formability of friction stir welded Al-Li alloy blanks are being studied at Marshall Space Flight Center. The formability ratings will be generated using the strain hardening exponent, strain rate sensitivity and forming range. The effects of forming temperature on the formability will also be studied. The objective of this work is to study the deformation behavior of the friction stir welded Al-Li alloy 2195 blank and determine the formability enhancement by the new annealing process.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Uneven distribution of the medical workforce is globally recognised, with widespread rural health workforce shortages. There has been substantial research on factors affecting recruitment and retention of rural doctors, but little has been done to establish the motives and conditions that encourage allied health professionals to practice rurally. This study aims to identify aspects of recruitment and retention of rural allied health professionals using qualitative methodology. Methods Six focus groups were conducted across rural NSW and analysed thematically using a grounded theory approach. The thirty allied health professionals participating in the focus groups were purposively sampled to represent a range of geographic locations, allied health professions, gender, age, and public or private work sectors. Results Five major themes emerged: personal factors; workload and type of work; continuing professional development (CPD; the impact of management; and career progression. ‘Pull factors’ favouring rural practice included: attraction to rural lifestyle; married or having family in the area; low cost of living; rural origin; personal engagement in the community; advanced work roles; a broad variety of challenging clinical work; and making a difference. ‘Push factors’ discouraging rural practice included: lack of employment opportunities for spouses; perceived inadequate quality of secondary schools; age related issues (retirement, desire for younger peer social interaction, and intention to travel; limited opportunity for career advancement; unmanageable workloads; and inadequate access to CPD. Having competent clinical managers mitigated the general frustration with health service management related to inappropriate service models and insufficient or inequitably distributed resources. Failure to fill vacant positions was of particular concern and frustration with the lack of CPD access was strongly represented by

    Full Text Available Rapid change of environment is an external force that causes the organization to transform. Fundamentally, the main purpose of the transformation is to change the organizational structure to be more flexible and competitive with fewer hierarchial levels, managers, and employees. The transformation needs to be radical, causing resistance from the organization's members. Their resistance can cause the transformation to fail, therefore organization must find ways to lessen this resistance. First, organization must learn about the diversity of its members' cultures and values. Second, organization must build its own organizational culture which can support the success of the transformation, by communicating it with the members of the organization. To support organizational culture building efforts, it needs changes in human resources practices, especially recruitment and selection. Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia : Perubahan yang cepat dalam lingkungan merupakan kekuatan eksternal yang mengakibatkan transformasi dalam sebuah organisasi. Pada dasarnya, tujuan utama dari transformasi tersebut adalah merubah struktur organisasi agar menjadi lebih fleksibel dan mampu bersaing, dengan tingkat structural yang sedikit, serta jumlah manajer dan karyawan yang lebih kecil. Transformasi tersebut harus menyeluruh, dan hal ini dapat menyebabkan resistensi dari para anggota organisasi yang memperhambat perubahan tersebut. Resistensi itu bisa menyebabkan perubahan tersebut batal, oleh karena itu organisasi harus mencari jalan untuk mengurangi hambatan-hambatan tersebut. Pertama, organisasi harus belajar keanekaragaman dari budaya dan nilai anggotanya. Kedua, organisasi harus mengembangkan budaya organisasi sendiri melalui komunikasi yang baik dengan anggotanya. Untuk mendukung usaha mengembangkan budaya organisasi, harus ada perubaban pada kebijakan sumber daya manusia, terutama dalam rekrutmen dan seleksi karyawan.

    1991-07-01

    We propose a new material for the fabrication of high-current photocathodes: a binary Al/Li alloy acting as a lithium dispenser cathode. This material would have the great advantage to allow regeneration of the Li layer after poisoning or air exposure, by a simple heating process. In a first experiment, we have measured the photoemission energy threshold, WΦ, of a piece of Al/Li alloy and the quantum yield, Y, as a function of the photon energy. After a heating process (340°C for 12 h) we obtained WΦ = 2 eV and Y = 6 × 10 -4 for 4.6 eV photon energy. In a second experiment another sample was illuminated with a 40 ps frequency-tripled YAG laser. After two heating processes, we obtained electron bunches containing 1 nC with an incident laser energy of 100 μJ per pulse.

    2012-05-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Allied Health Professionals today are required, more than ever before, to demonstrate their impact. However, despite at least 20 years of expectation, many services fail to deliver routine outcome measurement in practice. This systematic review investigates what helps and hinders routine outcome measurement of allied health professionals practice. Methods A systematic review protocol was developed comprising: a defined search strategy for PsycINFO, MEDLINE and CINHAL databases and inclusion criteria and systematic procedures for data extraction and quality appraisal. Studies were included if they were published in English and investigated facilitators and/or barriers to routine outcome measurement by allied health professionals. No restrictions were placed on publication type, design, country, or year of publication. Reference lists of included publications were searched to identify additional papers. Descriptive methods were used to synthesise the findings. Results 960 papers were retrieved; 15 met the inclusion criteria. Professional groups represented were Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language Therapy. The included literature varied in quality and design. Facilitators and barriers to routine outcome measurement exist at individual, managerial and organisational levels. Key factors affecting professionals’ use of routine outcome measurement include: professionals’ level of knowledge and confidence about using outcome measures, and the degree of organisational and peer-support professionals received with a view to promoting their work in practice. Conclusions Whilst the importance of routinely measuring outcomes within the allied health professions is well recognised, it has largely failed to be delivered in practice. Factors that influence clinicians’ ability and desire to undertake routine outcome measurement are bi-directional: they can act as either facilitators or barriers. Routine outcome

    The effect of electric field on the mechanical properties and microstructure of Al-Li alloy containing Ce was investigated, and mechanism was discussed. The experimental results show that the ductility of the alloy is enhanced by the electric field. The fracture features are changed and the precipitates are dispersed under the effect of the electric field. The mechanism discussion reveals that the effects of the electric field on the alloy are due to the change of the electron density in the alloy.

    2016-05-01

    The Girl Summit held in 2014 aimed to mobilise greater effort to end Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) within a generation, building on a global movement which viewed the practice as a severe form of violence against women and girls and a violation of their rights. The UN, among others, endorse "comprehensive" strategies to end FGM, including legalistic measures, social protection and social communications. FGM is a sensitive issue and difficult to research, and rapid ethnographic methods can use existing relations of trust within social networks to explore attitudes towards predominant social norms which posit FGM as a social necessity. This study used Participatory Ethnographic Evaluation Research (PEER) to understand young men's (18-25 years) perceptions of FGM, demand for FGM among future spouses, and perceptions of efforts to end FGM in a small town in West Pokot, Kenya, where FGM is reported to be high (between 85% to 96%). Twelve PEER researchers were recruited, who conducted two interviews with their friends, generating a total of 72 narrative interviews. The majority of young men who viewed themselves as having a "modern" outlook and with aspirations to marry "educated" women were more likely not to support FGM. Our findings show that young men viewed themselves as valuable allies in ending FGM, but that voicing their opposition to the practice was often difficult. More efforts are needed by multi-stakeholders - campaigners, government and local leaders - to create an enabling environment to voice that opposition. PMID:27578345

    We formulated policies and procedures for allied health professionals (AHPs) who provide services using telehealth in Nunavut, Canada's newest Arctic territory. These are a supplement to the clinical policies and procedures already established for Nunavut physicians and nurses. The services were in the areas of audiology, dietetics/nutrition, midwifery, occupational therapy, ophthalmic services, pharmacy, physiotherapy, psychology, respiratory therapy, social work and speech therapy. Documents specific to each of the services were developed, drawing on information from Government of Nunavut data, Nunavut healthcare providers and links made through the Internet. Topics included the scope and limitations of telehealth services, staff responsibilities, training and reporting, professional standards and cultural considerations. We also considered generic policies covering common issues such as jurisdiction, licensing and liability. The policies and procedures for AHPs will enhance and expand the successes already achieved with telehealth in Nunavut. The challenges are to balance the preferred approaches to service provision with the realities of health care and communications in an Arctic setting. PMID:16375792

  2. Did the Allies Know in 1942 About Nazi Germany's Poor Prospects for an Atomic Bomb?

    2008-04-01

    According to official accounts, the U.S. knew nothing about Nazi Germany's efforts to get an atomic bomb until the end of the World War II, but had feared the worst. As it turned out, the Germans had made little progress. But did someone in the Allied camp know in 1942? In his 1986 book, The Griffin, Arnold Kramish relates how Paul Rosbaud, a spy for MI6, the British secret intelligence service, kept his handlers informed during the War about the German atomic project and reported the decision to give up on a bomb. Kramish's revelations are, understandably, thinly documented and Rosbaud's name can hardly be found independenly anywhere else. But as Samuel Goudsmit's papers in the Bohr Library show, he knew and communicated with Rosbaud from August 1945 on. In 1986, 15 letters exchanged by Goudsmit and Rosbaud were removed by the Government from the Library and eventually placed in the National Archives under classification review. Renewed interest in the Rosbaud story was engendered last year when his family sued MI6 in an English court for the release of the Rosbaud file. So far the spy agency has refused to reveal even that there is such a file. Discovering authoritatively what Rosbaud told the British and what they did with the information is clearly of historical interest.

    Leadership behaviors are an important aspect of athletic training and are needed within all allied health care disciples. A two-phase, exploratory, non-experimental research study using a Delphi technique and a randomly selected sample of athletic trainers (n = 161) was conducted to determine leadership competencies perceived to be important for athletic training practice and education. The Delphi technique (phase one) resulted in the Leadership Development in Athletic Training instrument (LDAT). In the national survey (phase two), respondents used the LDAT to rate the importance of leadership competencies for athletic training practice and for athletic training education. Coefficient alphas ranged from α = 0.83 to 0.97 and provided satisfactory estimates of internal consistency. Concurrent, construct, and convergent validity were established. Forty-nine leadership competencies were rated important for practice and 48 for education (M = 1.5, p ≤ 0.001). Exploratory factor analysis revealed that leadership competencies were organized by four constructs (with six emphases): 1) personality characteristics, 2) diagnosing context and people skills, 3) communication and initiative, and 4) strategic thinking. Repeated measures ANOVA with Sidak post-hoc adjustments indicated each leadership construct significantly increased in importance as the level of the ATEP progressed. PMID:21184023

    Full Text Available Crocus sativus L. is mainly known for the production of the drug saffron. Because of its sterility, it is propagated vegetatively by means of corms. To gain information on the reproductive biology of saffron and allied species, a comparative study on pollen and pistil of Crocus sativus L., C. cartwrightianus Herb., C. thomasii Ten. and C. hadriaticus Herb. was carried out. Pollen and pistils gathered at anthesis were examined by light (LM and scanning electron microscopy (SEM. Pollen shape and size, anomalous pollen grain percentage, pollen viability, pollen germination in vitro and on self-, and cross-pollinated stigmas were examined. Pistils at different developmental stages were examined by light microscopy. C. hadriaticus had the smallest pollen; C. sativus showed a higher percentage of anomalous and aborted grains and a lower percentage of viable grains. Pollen germination in vitro as well as on differently pollinated stigmas was lowest in C. sativus. Pistil organization was similar in all the species, but ovule number and integuments varied. Embryo sacs mature early, and female gametophyte development is regular for some days after flower anthesis. Capsules with seeds were obtained from all diploid species as well as in saffron after free- and cross-pollination. Results confirm that sterility in C. sativus is mainly confined to pollen.

  5. Law and Justice on TV. The Wire vs. CSI and Ally McBeal

    2012-04-01

    Full Text Available The aim of this paper is to analyse the ways in which law is represented in the celebrated TV series The Wire, broadcasted in United States between 2002 and 2008. The analysis focuses particularly on the thematization of the relationship between the concept of law and that of justice, that is between 'positive law' and 'natural law'. This theme is pursued in the context of American television series of great success such as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS, 2000- and Ally McBeal (Fox, 1997-2002 . The comparison highlights the way in which in The Wire the terms of the problem are completely eroded through the representation of a sort of 'disappearance of justice'. In this series the natural law becomes insignificant both because it is no more the point of reference of the actions activated by the institutions, and because an informed, in-depth and not prejudicial gaze on the social reality of the contemporary metropolis brings into question the very idea of a justice absolute and distanced from the contingent circumstances.

    In 1975 and 1976, 8 teams of investigators located 262 colonies of nesting herons and their allies along the Atlantic coast from Florida to Maine [USA]. Fourteen species [Ajaia ajaja, Plegadis falcinellus, Nycticorax nycticorax, Ardea herodias, Eudocimus albus, Egretta thula, Hydranassa tricolor, Bubulcus ibis, Casmerodius albus, Butorides striatus, Florida caerulea, Dichromanassa rufescens, Nyctanassa violacea and Mycteria americana] were found in Florida, numbers decreasing to 7 in Maine. Colonies censused in the extreme south and north of the study area were lower in number of species and number of adults than those in the intermediate area. More than 90% of the colony sites surveyed in 1975 were active in 1976. The total number of nesting adults per colony, number of species per colony and number of nesting adults of each species per colony in 1976 were significantly correlated with their respective values for 1975. Abandoned and new colonies may be satellites of nearby reused colonies; they had fewer individuals and species than reused colonies and were closer to reused colonies than reused colonies were to each other. [This study was part of an attempt to examine colonially nesting herons as biological indicators of environmental quality.

  7. Evolution of grain structure in AA2195 Al-Li alloy plate during recrystallization

    2006-01-01

    The evolution of the grain structures in AA2195 Al-Li alloy plate warm-rolled by 80% reduction during recrystallization annealing at 500 ℃ was investigated by electron backscatter diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy. It is found that the elongated grain structures are caused by the lamellar distribution of recrystallization nucleation sites,being lack of large second phase particles (> 1 μm), and dispersive coherent particles (such as δ'andβ) concentrated in planar bands.The recrystallization process may be separated into three stages: firstly, recrystallization nucleation occurs heterogeneously, and the nuclei are concentrated in some planar zones parallel to rolling plane. Secondly, the grain boundaries interacted with small particles concentrate in planar bands, which is able to result in the elongated grain structures. The rate of the grain growth is controlled by the dissolution of these small particles. Thirdly, after most of small particles are dissolved, their hindrance to migration of the grain boundaries fades away, and the unrecrystallized zones are consumed by adjacent recrystallized grains. The migration of high angle grain boundaries along normal direction leads a gradual transformation from the elongated grains to the nearly equiaxed, which is driven by the tension of the grain boundaries.

    Full Text Available When the Nazi Germany attacked the Soviets at the beginning of World War II, the USA, the UK and the Soviet Union took part on the same side and were called the Allies. In order to convey the military aid to the Soviets through Iran, the USA and the UK invaded Iran with the Soviets and dethroned Ahmad Reza Shah, who felt sympathy for Germany. By signing a treaty in 1942, they pledged to evacuate their troops from Iran six months after the war ended. They published a declaration that they would protect Iran’s territorial integrity as well as they repeated these decisions during the conference they made in Tehran in 1943. However; despite these decisions, a hidden rivalry began between the USSR and the West in Iran. The rivalry became very clear towards the end of the war. The Soviets wouldn’t withdraw from Iran. Additionally, they endeavored to divide Iran. The Iran crisis of 1946 between the West and the Soviets formed the start of the Cold War according to some people. As a country, Iran was highly affected by this process.

  9. Investigation of grain boundary chemistry in Al-Li 2195 welds using Auger electron spectroscopy

    Al-Li alloy 2195 is a low-density material with high fracture toughness that is particularly well-suited for aerospace systems. It will replace Al-Cu alloy 2219 in the Super Light Weight Tank (SLWT), a modified version of the external tank being developed for the Space Shuttle to support Space Station deployment. Recent efforts have focused on joining 2195 with variable polarity plasma arc welding, as well as repairing 2195 welds with tungsten inert gas techniques. During this study, Auger electron spectroscopy (AES) was used to examine grain boundary chemistry in 2195 welds. Results indicated that weld integrity depends on whether (and how much) the grain boundaries are covered with thin films comprised of a mixture of discontinuous Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} in Al (Al/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}), which form during weld solidification. O was probably introduced as a contaminant in the shielding gases, occurring at low levels considered negligible for Al alloys that do not contain Li. However, oxidation kinetics in 2195 are increased by Li enrichment of small quantities of Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}, further enhancing thin film formation at the grain boundaries. Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} can ultimately occupy sufficient grain boundary area to degrade the material`s mechanical properties, producing negative effects that are compounded by the cumulative heat input of multi-pass repair welding.

    Laser welding of advanced Al-Li alloys has been developed to meet the increasing demand for light-weight and high-strength aerospace structures. However, welding of high-strength Al-Li alloys can be problematic due to the tendency for hot cracking. Finding suitable welding parameters and filler material for this combination currently requires extensive and costly trial and error experimentation. The present work describes a novel coupled model to predict hot crack susceptibility (HCS) in Al-Li welds. Such a model can be used to shortcut the weld development process. The coupled model combines finite element process simulation with a two-level HCS model. The finite element process model predicts thermal field data for the subsequent HCS hot cracking prediction. The model can be used to predict the influences of filler wire composition and welding parameters on HCS. The modeling results have been validated by comparing predictions with results from fully instrumented laser welds performed under a range of process parameters and analyzed using high-resolution X-ray tomography to identify weld defects. It is shown that the model is capable of accurately predicting the thermal field around the weld and the trend of HCS as a function of process parameters.

    The concept retained for high level and years living radioactive waste disposal is the underground storage. It is then necessary to know the behaviour in time (about 10000 years) of the different constituent elements of the containment. The storage site chosen is the Bures' ones, presenting a clay formation at 600 m of depth. Each compartment is separated of a sufficient distance in order to profit of the thermal dispersion effect in the rock for optimizing the cooling of the package. In this work, has been used an unalloyed steel sur-container. The aim is to understand the resistance of the material under corrosion and loading, and particularly the stress corrosion which is a particular case of cracking assisted by environment. The material studied is a weld of two unalloyed steels obtained by electron beam. Slow traction tests have been carried out in an autoclave in the following experimental conditions: interstitial water in equilibrium with a helium-CO{sub 2} mixture 5.4 per thousand under 50 bar and at a temperature of 90 C. The results show an influence of the hydrogen corrosion on the mechanical behaviour of the material and particularly a decrease of the size of the reduction in area, which is practically unexisting in the case of the melted zone. These results are explained into details. (O.M.)

    In low copper steels for nuclear reactor pressure vessel, point defect clustering plays an important role in hardening. These clusters are very small and invisible by transmission electron microscopy. In order to study the hardening component which results from the clustering of freely migrating point defects, we irradiated in a high voltage electron microscope Fe, the FeCu{sub 0.13%}, FeP{sub 0.015%} and FeN{sub 33ppm} alloys and the complex FeMn{sub 1.5%}Ni{sub 0.8%}Cu{sub 0.13%}P{sub 0.01%} alloy the composition of which is close to the matrix of pressure vessel steel. We studied the nucleation of dislocation loops and their growth velocity. The observations and the analyses have shown that in the complex model alloy, the interstitial dislocation loops are smaller and their density is more important than for the others alloys. The diffusion coefficients of interstitials and vacancies are obtained with the help of a simplified model. The densities of dislocation loops and their growth velocities obtained experimentally are reproduced by means of a cluster dynamics model we have developed. This is achieved self-consistently by using as a first trial the approximated coefficients obtained with the simplified model. The results of calculations have shown that the binding energy of di-interstitials must be very important in the binary iron alloys and only 0.95 eV in iron. Copper, nitrogen and phosphorus stabilize di-interstitials in iron. Finally the distribution of interstitial loops at 290 deg C and at 2.10{sup -9} dpa/s is calculated with the diffusion coefficient of point defects adjusted in FeCu. A distribution of small loops appears which gives an increase of hardening estimated to 10 Hv instead of 33 Hv experimentally observed. This low value can be improved by assuming in agreement with molecular dynamics simulations that a little fraction of di-interstitials is created at 2.5 MeV. (author) 111 refs.

  2. Characterization of Indian cigarette tobacco and its smoke aerosol by nuclear and allied techniques

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Forty brands of tobacco used in Indian cigarettes, 20 brands of bidis (tobacco rolled in wrapper leaves), 15 brands of chewing tobacco and 15 brands of snuff tobacco were analyzed by nuclear and allied techniques. The elements measured into tobacco can be grouped into seven categories from less than 1 ppm to 5% by weight. Concentration level varied from 0.5-5% for (Ca, K, Cl), 400-1500 ppm (Fe), 200-600 ppm (Na), 100-300 ppm (Ti, Mn, Br and Sr), 10-100 ppm (Cu, Zn and Rb), 1-10 ppm (Cr, Ni, Pb and La) and less than 1 ppm (As, Co, Cd, Sb, Hg and Eu). Among the above elements Cr, Ni, As, Cd, Pb, Hg and Sb are considered toxic. The percentage transfer of the elements from cigarette tobacco to smoke particles during smoking was also estimated using a smoking machine and collecting the smoke particles on a filter paper. The results show that Br, Cr, Sb and Zn have high percentage transfer from tobacco to its smoke of the order of 2-15%. Out of these Sb has the highest 15%. Cobalt, Fe and Sc have lowest percentage of transfer of the order of less than 1%. The percent transfer of these elements from tobacco to tobacco smoke is higher in case of bidis (1.5-3.0 times) as compared to cigarettes. In cigarettes also non-filter cigarettes have higher transfer (2-3 times) as compared to filter tip cigarettes. (author)

    Chronic diseases require a multidisciplinary approach to provide patients with optimal care in general practice. This often involves general practitioners (GPs) referring their patients to allied health professionals (AHPs). The Team-link study explored the impact of an intervention to enhance working relationships between GPs and AHPs in general practice regarding the management of two chronic diseases: diabetes and ischaemic heart disease (IHD) or hypertension. The Measure of Multidisciplinary Linkages (MoML) questionnaire was developed to assess professional interactions and satisfaction with various aspects of the multidisciplinary relationship. Questionnaires were completed at baseline and 6 months by GPs (n=29) participating in the Team-link project and by AHPs (n=39) who had a current working relationship with these GPs. The Chronic Care Team Profile (CCTP) and Clinical Linkages Questionnaire (CLQ) were also completed by GPs. There were significant changes from baseline to 6 months after the intervention measures for individual items and overall MoML scores for GPs, especially items assessing 'contact', 'shared care' and 'satisfaction with communication'. The comparable item in the CLQ, 'Shared Care', also showed significant improvement. However, there were no statistically significant correlations between the change in overall 'Referral Satisfaction' scores in the GP MoML and the CLQ. The CCTP also improved and was a weak negative correlation between the GP MoML and two of the subscores of this instrument. There were no changes in AHP measure. This study demonstrates that the instrument is sensitive to differences between providers and conditions and is sensitive to change over time following an intervention. There were few associations with the other measures suggesting that the MoML might assess other aspects of teamwork involving practitioners who are not collocated or in the same organisation.

  4. Application of nuclear and allied techniques for the characterization of forensic samples

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Forensic science deals with the application of various techniques - physical, chemical, and biological - for crime investigation. The legal implications of such analyses put considerable restrictions on the choice of techniques. Moreover, the unknown nature of materials, the limited availability of samples, and the large number of elements to be analysed put considerable strain on the analyst to select appropriate methods.The availability of nuclear techniques has considerably enhanced the scope of forensic analysis. Multi-technique approaches, involving nuclear and non-nuclear analytical methods, have proven to be valid and versatile. In this paper we present recent results from the use of nuclear and allied analytical methods for forensic applications. Some of the forensic samples recently analysed in our laboratories will also be discussed. One of the major types of samples handled pertains to the identification of gunshot residues, and nuclear techniques have considerably simplified interpretation of results. Analysis of unknown materials like powders or metallic fragments for the possible presence of illicit nuclear material is becoming more essential. Characterization of materials is also of importance in view of the possible dumping of toxic wastes from developed countries in developing countries. Detection of gold in a smuggling case was possible using X ray fluorescence and neutron activation analysis even though the smuggler used an innovative approach and converted the gold to a colourless cyanide complex to prevent its easy detection. Analysis of commercial pharmaceutical or medicinal preparations for toxic metals is also becoming important in view of the illegal use of materials like heroin. The increasing volume of illegal and criminal activities requires judicious application of nuclear and non-nuclear techniques for the conviction of criminals and, more importantly, for acquittal of the innocent.

    There have been numerous changes in the health care system, including cost-containment efforts, the increased growth of managed care, and shortages of many health professionals. It is important to assess the impact these changes are having on the quality of health care delivery and the way various health professionals view their jobs. To accomplish this assessment, a sample of experienced nursing and allied health professionals were asked to provide their assessment of positive and negative changes in the health system over a 5-year period. They also were asked to indicate their level of satisfaction with their profession, their current job, and various aspects of that job. A Health Care Environment Survey was mailed to six groups of graduates of a mid-Atlantic college of health professions. Three of the groups had been in practice for 5 years, and three of the groups had been in practice for 10 years. The survey asked respondents to assess the magnitude of certain changes in the health system over the previous 5 years and to provide an assessment of their satisfaction with their current job. A total of 1,610 surveys were mailed, and 787 were returned for a rate of 49%. Nursing and allied health professionals who responded to the survey reported that there have been many more negative than positive changes in the health care system, including less job security, efficiency, and time available to spend with individual patients and increases in workload, paperwork, and control of health care by insurance companies. Even with these negative changes, nurses and allied health professionals report a high level of satisfaction with their jobs. In investigating the aspects of their jobs that were most related to satisfaction, having a feeling of worthwhile accomplishment from their job, opportunities for personal and professional growth, recognition and satisfaction with their workload were found to be the best predictors of job satisfaction.

    Full Text Available Lucylynn Lizarondo, Karen Grimmer, Saravana KumarInternational Center for Allied Health Evidence, University of South Australia, Adelaide, SA, AustraliaPurpose: A recent trial which examined the impact of a structured model of journal club (JC demonstrated variability in evidence-based practice (EBP outcomes across allied health disciplines. The aim of the current study was to determine if there are individual practitioner characteristics that could explain this variability and identify potential predictors of EBP outcomes.Method: This exploratory study used the data obtained from the JC trial. The predictive value of practitioner-related variables including academic degree, previous exposure to EBP training, and previous research involvement was analyzed using univariate logistic regression models. The dose of intervention was also included in the exploratory analysis.Results: The change in self-reported knowledge, evidence uptake, and attitude following participation in a JC was influenced by individual practitioner characteristics including their discipline, academic background, previous EBP training, previous research involvement, and JC attendance. Improvement in objective knowledge did not seem to be affected by any of these variables. Whether these individual characteristics have the ability to predict who will achieve less than, or greater than, 50% change in knowledge, attitude, and evidence uptake, is not known, except for academic background which predicted physiotherapists' improvement in attitude.Conclusion: Participation in a structured JC can lead to significant improvements in EBP knowledge irrespective of the characteristics of individual practitioners.

A systematic approach to evaluating the evidence of the experience and effects of professional supervision for non-metropolitan allied health practitioners and their service delivery is needed. Methods: Studies investigating the experience and effects of professional supervision across 17 allied health disciplines in non-metropolitan health services were systematically searched for using standardized keywords across seven databases. The initial search identified 1,574 references. Of these studies, five met inclusion criteria and were subject to full methodological appraisal by both reviewers. Two studies were primarily qualitative with three studies primarily quantitative in their approach. Studies were appraised using McMaster critical appraisal tools and data were extracted and synthesized. Results: Studies reported the context specific benefits and challenges of supervision in non-metropolitan areas and the importance of supervision in enhancing satisfaction and support in these areas. Comparison of findings between metropolitan and non-metropolitan settings within one study suggested that allied health in non-metropolitan settings were more satisfied with supervision though less likely to access it and preferred supervision with other non-metropolitan practitioners over access to more experienced supervisors. One study in a regional health service identified the lack

    Background: Distraction is nothing but internal intension of the mind towards involvement of the person. This research studied classroom distractions factors among students of Faculty of Allied medical Sciences in year 2014-2015, so that with the findings of the research about classroom distractors’ factors and to present proposed suggestions for decreasing and removing of distractions. Methods: This is an exploratory study. Data collection in this study was the researcher made questionnaire based on Likert-type scales. SPSS software was used for analyzing the data statistics such as mean, standard deviation and frequency ratings, each subset of the elements associated with distraction Friedman test has been used to determine the ranking of each of the components. Results: 139 people participated in the six majors in this study which 91 people (65.5%) was female, and 48 people (34.5%) was male. Maximum number of 31 people (22.3) was in laboratory science, Lowest number of 15 (10.08 percent) in medical records, 25 (18%) people in Radiology, health information technology and medical emergencies which each of above course studies with 23 people (16.5 %), Anesthesiology 22 (15.8 percent) participated in this study. Among the internal factors of distraction between male and female students, the sleeping factor was in first priority and “My phone / pager ringing or answering the mobile” was in last priority. Among distraction external factors in male students, the factor “Adornment of professors” with mean 3.27 and SD=1.30 and Mean Rank=23.06 was in first priority, and among external distraction factors in girl students, the factor, “Used clothing and exotic costumes of Classmates” with mean=3.21, SD=1.30 and mean rank=22.66 was in first priority and factor of “Surroundings Noise (mowing, drilling, construction, and …)” for male and female students was in last priority. Conclusions: Attention and concentration are crucial to effective accomplishment

  3. Splenic Trapping of Heat-Treated Erythrocytes in Leukaemia and Allied Conditions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In a trial to find whether or not the enlarged spleen plays a role in the production of the form of anaemia commonly encountered in leukaemias and allied conditions, 44 patients suffering from these disease states were studied using 51Cr-labelled erythrocytes heated at 50°C for 60 min. Cells altered in this manner have been shown by various workers to be selectively sequestered by the spleen. As a control, the test was performed on 24 normal subjects. In these normals, the disappearance half-time of radioactivity from the circulation (T½ amounted to 172 ± 69 min (mean ± 1 S.D.), the lowest limit being 74 min. Accordingly, patients with less than 74 min were considered to have an abnormally rapid disappearance of heat-treated erythrocytes from the circulation and consequently exaggerated splenic sequestration of these altered cells. Splenic trapping of heat-treated erythrocytes was most marked in acute leukaemia (four out of six patients). However, three had associated normoblastic hypoplasia of the sternal marrow. Corticosteroids induced a remission with reversion of both processes responsible for the anaemia in two out of the four patients. In chronic myeloid leukaemia, exaggerated splenic sequestration of altered cells was seen in four of the 15 cases examined. This condition was of extra-erythrocytic origin, since repetition of the test using normal donor heat-treated erythrocytes did not significantly alter the disappearance half-time. However, there was no correlation between the size of the spleen and its avidity for trapping the altered cells. Follow-up studies showed that therapy caused prolongation of the half-time of heat-treated erythrocytes, the effect being more apparent after corticosteroids than with X-rays or Endoxan, In Hodgkin’s disease, increased red cell trapping was observed in two out of the seven patients studied. In contrast, five cases of chronic lymphatic leukaemia, six lymphosarcoma and five reticulum cell sarcoma had normal

    Management of allied health staff and services often has implications for staff stability and retention. A survey of allied health staff in South West Victoria was conducted in 2003 to explore issues relating to recruitment and retention. Findings relating to management and retention of staff in their current job are addressed in this report. A total of 138 staff returned their questionnaires. Results were related to Maslow's hierarchy of needs, level of belonging, with professional needs identified as feeling supported, orientation to the position, clear job description, and able to recommend the position to others. Qualitative data showed that recommending the position was associated with job satisfaction, autonomy, flexibility, and variety of work. The immediate management structure was significantly related to retention. Reasons given for intending to leave were related to management categories. These were management structure, lack of career structure, and lack of professional support. Reasons given by respondents for not recommending their current position were as follows: not for long-term career, risk of deskilling if staying too long, and financially unrewarding. These reasons were also related to management. Positive reasons for staying, which were related to management, included flexible work conditions, variety of clinical and management experience, good working environment, good support, and autonomy. Recommendations are given for organizational development and training for managers. PMID:17243438

  9. Application of nuclear and allied techniques for the characterisation of forensic samples

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Forensic science deals with the application of various techniques for physics, chemistry and biology for crime investigation. The legal implication of such analysis put considerable restriction on the choice of analytical techniques. Moreover, the unknown nature of the materials, the limited availability of samples and the large number of elements to be analysed put considerable strain on the analytical chemist on the selection of the appropriate technique. The availability of nuclear techniques has considerably enhanced the scope of forensic analysis. This paper deals with the recent results on the use of nuclear and allied analytical techniques for forensic applications. One of the important types of samples of forensic importance pertain to the identification of gunshot residues. The use of nuclear techniques has considerably simplified the interpretation of results through the use of appropriate elements like Ba, Cu, Sb, Zn, As and Sn etc. The combination of non-nuclear techniques for elements like Pb and Ni which are not easily amenable to be analysed by NAA and the use of appropriate separation procedure has led to the use of this method as a valid and versatile analytical procedure. In view of the presence of a large amounts of extraneous materials like cloth, body tissues etc in these samples and the limited availability of materials, the procedures for sample collection, dissolution and analysis have been standardized. Analysis of unknown materials like powders, metallic pieces etc. for the possible presence of nuclear materials or as materials in illicit trafficking is becoming important in recent years. The use of multi-technique approach is important in this case. Use of non-destructive techniques like XRF and radioactive counting enables the preliminary identification of materials and for the detection of radioactivity. Subsequent analysis by NAA or other appropriate analytical methods allows the characterization of the materials. Such

It needs a new instrument, Good Cooperate Governance (GCG, to prove that the management is going well. This concept emphasize on two important things, that is : first, the right of shareholder to be provided of right and just on time information, and second, the obligation of company to disclose accurately, just on time, and transparently all information of company`s performance, shareholders, and stakeholders. Various studies by national and international researchers proved the lack of understanding the importance and strategic implication of applying GCG principles by Indonesian entrepreneur. Besides, organization culture also influencing GCG application in Indonesia. Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia : Perkembangan terbaru membuktikan bahwa manajemen tidak cukup hanya memastikan bahwa proses pengelolaan manajemen berjalan dengan efisien. Diperlukan instrumen baru, Good Corporate Governance (GCG untuk memastikan bahwa manajemen berjalan dengan baik. Ada dua hal yang ditekankan dalam konsep ini, pertama, pentingnya hak pemegang saham untuk memperoleh informasi dengan benar dan tepat pada waktunya dan, kedua, kewajiban perusahaan untuk melakukan pengungkapan (disclosure secara akurat, tepat waktu, dan transparan terhadap semua informasi kinerja perusahaan, kepemilikan, dan stakeholder. Dari berbagai hasil pengkajian yang dilakukan oleh berbagai lembaga riset independen nasional dan internasional, menunjukkan rendahnya pemahaman terhadap arti penting dan strategisnya penerapan prinsip-prinsip GCG oleh pelaku bisnis di Indonesia. Selain itu, budaya organisasi turut mempengaruhi penerapan GCG di Indonesia. Kata kunci: GCG, prinsip-prinsip GCG, budaya organisasi, penerapan di Indonesia.

    Full Text Available Suhu dan kelembaban merupakan dua objek pengukuran yang acapkali terdapat di dalam sistem akuisisi data. Terdapat banyak piranti sensor yang berfungsi untuk mengukur dua objek tersebut dan akurasi merupakan salah satu parameter yang dapat digunakan untuk memilihnya. DHT11 dan DHT22 adalah sensor seri DHT dari Aosong Electronics yang dapat melakukan pengukuran suhu dan kelembaban secara serempak dengan keluaran digital. Informasi tentang akurasi terdapat di dalam lembar data keduanya. Kendati pun demikian informasi tersebut tidak menggambarkan kondisi sesungguhnya saat dioperasikan pada lokasi maupun platform tertentu. Tujuan dari penelitian ini adalah untuk membandingkan akurasi dari DHT11 dan DHT22 dalam pengukuran suhu dan kelembaban saat dioperasikan di dalam maupun di luar ruangan, menggunakan platform ATMEL AVR dan Arduino. Berdasarkan pengujian yang telah dilakukan, DHT22 memiliki akurasi yang lebih baik daripada DHT11 dengan galat relatif pengukuran suhu 4% dan kelembaban 18%. DHT11 sebaliknya memiliki rentang galat yang lebih lebar sebesar 1 – 7% dan 11 – 35%, masing-masing untuk pengukuran suhu dan kelembaban. Perbedaan lokasi dan platform tidak memberikan pengaruh pada hasil pengukuran. Galat pengukuran kelembaban yang masih di atas 10% menunjukkan perlunya kalibrasi ulang. Di masa mendatang, selain akurasi, kepresisian juga perlu diuji menggunakan penghitungan simpangan baku pada hasil-hasil pengukuran.

    2003-01-01

    The effect of electric current pulse on the grain growth in the superplastic deformation of 2091 Al-Li alloy was investigated. Optical metallographic microstructure observation and average linear intercept measuring results show that at same strain, the grain size in the superplastic deformation loaded with electric current pulse is smaller than that unemploying electric current pulse, and so does the grain growth rate. TEM observation shows that the dislocation density at grain boundary in the superplastic deformation applied with electric current pulse is lower than that unemploying electric current pulse.It indicates that electric current pulse increases the rate of dislocation slip and climb in grain boundary, which leads to a decrease of both the density of the dislocation slipping across grain boundary at same strain rate and the driving force for grain growth, therefore the rate of grain growth decreases.The established model for grain growth shows an exponential relation of grain size with strain.

Method: Ninety cases were randomized into thread-embedding group, western medicine group and embedding+ western medicine group (allied-therapy group), 30 cases in each one.In thread embedding group, Yingxiang (迎香 LI 20) and Feishu (肺俞 BL 13) were selected for thread embedding, once a week, totally 4 treatments were required. In western medicine group, certirizine tablet 10 mg in combination with fl ixonase sprayer was applied once per day, continuously for 30 days in treatment.In allied-therapy group, both of the above methods were adopted continuously for 30 days in treatment. The therapeutic effects were in statistics at the end of treatment and 1 year later. Results: At the end of treatment, in thread-embedding group, 21 cases were remarkably effective, 3 cases effective and 6 cases no effect. In western medicine group, 20 cases were remarkably effective, 3 cases effective and 7 cases no effect. In allied-therapy group, 23 cases were remarkably effective, 2 cases effective and 5 cases no effect. It was shown in statistics that there was no significant difference in therapeutic effects among three groups (P>0.05). But one year after the end of treatment, it was indicated that in thread-embedding group, 3 cases were remarkably effective, 10 cases effective and 17 cases no effect; in western medicine group, 2 cases were remarkably effective, 9 cases effective and 19 cases no effect; in allied-therapy group, 7 cases were remarkably effective, 11 cases effective and 12 cases no effect.

    While there has been a recent squeeze on staff costs, it continues to be important to offer graduating clinical staff National Health Service (NHS) employment in order to maintain the long-term strength of the service. In addition, the experiences of the Canadian nursing profession suggest that complacency about an improving recruitment situation can lead to problems. Consequently, the objective of this study was to identify what influences allied health professionals' (AHPs) intention to work for the NHS. A postal survey was sent to members of four Allied Health Professions equally (N = 4800), targeting Stayers in, Leavers from, and Returners to, the NHS. One thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine questionnaires were returned giving an overall response rate of 40%. Stayers' intention to remain in the NHS was influenced by continuing professional development opportunities, confidence that they can find NHS work, commitment to their profession, a sense of moral obligation and a belief that other people important to them think it is a good idea. Returners' intention is influenced by similar factors as Stayers. Leavers are influenced by similar factors as Stayers/Returners but to a lesser extent. The study shows that perceptions of various NHS work characteristics, which lead to reasonably positive attitudes towards the NHS, do not necessarily translate into intention to work for it. The study also shows that intention to work for the NHS is not solely dependent on perceptions of NHS jobs and that career-decision-making is a social process, with the opinions of people who are important to AHPs also influencing career decisions.

    Ce livre fait pénétrer le lecteur non initié dans l’instrument scientifique le plus grand du monde. D’ailleurs, le web fut précisément inventé à Genève en vue d’une collaboration aussi gigantesque. Résultat de vingt ans de recherche, le LHC, Grand collisionneur de hadrons, est l’anneau de 26,7 km creusé sous la frontière francosuisse, où sont accélérés, en sens opposés, des paquets de particules jusqu’à des vitesses et des énergies extrêmes. Ainsi la physique s’est-elle engagée dans une étape nouvelle de nos connaissances. Après les grandes découvertes de l’univers et de la réalité microscopique du siècle dernier, le collisionneur nous fait progresser aujourd’hui dans un «nuage de probabilités» aux frontières de l’antimatière. Dans une bousculade de particules, voici le champ convoité du boson de Higgs.

    Accélérateurs géants, détecteurs complexes, particules énigmatiques... La physique subatomique peut sembler bien intimidante pour le novice. Et pourtant, qui n a jamais entendu parler du boson de Higgs et du CERN, le laboratoire européen où il a été découvert en 2012 ? Nul besoin d être un spécialiste pour comprendre de quoi il s agit. Aujourd hui, une théorie extraordinairement élégante, le Modèle Standard, décrit tous les résultats des expériences dans le domaine. Trente-sept particules élémentaires et quatre forces fondamentales : c est tout ce dont nous avons besoin pour expliquer la matière et l Univers ! Ce livre, destiné à un large public, raconte sans équations le long parcours qui a abouti au Modèle Standard. Ce parcours, parfois sinueux, a été entamé lorsque les Grecs anciens, et peut-être d autres avant eux, ont imaginé que la matière est composée de petites « billes ».

    Full Text Available Fruit du conflit plusieurs fois séculaire entre les producteurs et le négoce, le terroir vitivinicole est né de phénomènes de « distinction » qui en Bordelais donnent les « crus ». Ces terroirs de production identifiés, il fallut les faire durer, face à conjoncture, face au négoce. Les réussites les plus nettes sont le résultat d’un projet collectif dont l’AOC à la française est l’une des plus spectaculaires. Renforcer le terroir, compris comme un espace de production géré par les producteurs, devient alors une des conditions essentielles de la durabilité du système. L’avenir des AOC réside sans doute dans une meilleure gestion du conflit négoce/production par l’interprofession mais aussi (surtout ! dans un renforcement de la gestion de la production au sein de l’aire de production qu’est le terroir. L’avenir du terroir relève de la gouvernance de cette aire de production avec trois partenaires : la puissance publique (INAO, l’interprofession et le syndicat des producteurs. Se pose dès lors la question du partage des compétences et la durabilité des AOC paraît liée en grande partie à une définition claire du rôle et donc du statut des syndicats de producteurs, à une véritable gouvernance locale, seule capable de donner du sens à l’ancrage géographique des vins dits de « terroir ». Mais alors ne faut-il pas impliquer un troisième partenaire, la société locale toute entière à travers ses représentations démocratique et associative ?Resulting from century-long conflicts between producers and merchants, vineyards have developped out of "distinction" phenomenons which in the Bordeaux region gave birth to "crus" (vintages. Such identified terroirs had to be defended: the French collective AOC (Denomination of Origin project is one of the most spectacular success. The terroir, as production territory organized by producers, is one of the essential conditions for sustainability

    Robertus Robet

    2016-06-01

    Full Text Available Bauman berpandangan bahwa modernitas memiliki dua gejala pokok yakni modernitas padat dan modernitas cair. Dalam modernitas padat masyarakat tumbuh dalam bimbingan ide dan tatanan, sementara dalam modernitas cair masyarakat dan manusia secara paradoksal didikte oleh ilusi mengenai kecepatan dan perubahan yang terus menerus hingga akhirnya kehilangan pendasaran. Dalam membentuk tatanan, modernitas mensyaratkan praktik kategorisasi dan pengadministrasian. Dengan itu modernitas memastikan siapa yang bagian tatanan dan siapa yang bukan bavian dari tatanan. Kategorisasi berimplikasi pada ambivalansi yakni munculnya aktor yang tak terdefinisikan sebagai bagian atau bukan bagian dari kategorisasi dan administrasi itu. Dalam sejarah, mereka yang didefinisikan sebagai bukan bagian adalah mereka yang rentan untuk diekslusikan. Ambivalensi modernitas inilah yang kemudian berujung pada holocaust. Berdasar pengalaman itu, Bauman kemudian mengajak kita untuk bukan hanya memahami sosiologi sebagai ilmu yang memiliki komitmen terhadap kebenaran , tetapi juga ilmu yang menghargai kekayaan dalam pengalaman manusia yang beragam.

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Mg merupakan salah satu material yang digunakan sebagai material penyimpan hidrogen dengan membentuk MgH2. Sifat absorpsi dan desorpsi hidrogen dari suatu metal hidrida salah satunya tergantung  pada bahan, unsur penambah, dan metode pembuatannya. Pada penelitian kali ini Mg sebagai material penyimpan hidrogen dihasilkan melalui metode mechanical alloying dengan unsur penambah Ni, Cu, dan Al dan variasi waktu milling 10, 20, 30 jam. Selanjutnya sampel dilakukan pengujian SEM, XRD, DSC, dan Uji hidrogenisasi. Dari data uji diperoleh bahwa meningkatnya waktu milling menurunkan ukuran partikel sehingga meningkatkan wt% hidrogen terabsorb dan menurunkan temperatur onset desorpsi. Namun efek aglomerasi dan coldwelding yang berlebih pada proses mechanical alloying mengakibatkan ukuran partikel menjadi lebih besar. Unsur pemadu Al dan Cu berfungsi sebagai katalis, sedangkan Ni berfungsi sebagai pemadu yang ikut bereaksi dengan hidrogen. Mg10wt%Al dengan waktu milling 20 jam mempunyai nilai weight percent terbaik H2 yaitu 0.38% dalam temperatur hidrogenisasi 2500C, tekanan 3 atm, dan waktu tahan 1 jam. Sedangkan Mg10wt%Al dengan waktu milling 30 jam memiliki temperatur onset paling rendah yaitu 341.490C Kata Kunci— Absorpsi, Desorpsi, Material Penyimpan Hidrogen, Mechanical Alloying, Mg

The problem that arised was that to what the extent NU had  participated in national politics and how big Muslimat NU’s representation was in national politics. Through a typology approach, this article explored the political contributions of NU and NU Women Cadre in the trajectory of the national history. A lot of data indicated that NU and muslimat NU had taken part both passively and actively in national politics. In the colonial era, typologically NU took part as passive participant, but in the next period, it took part in the form of non-conventional active participants.This active participant apparently showed its participation when NU issued Jihad Resolution to defend Indonesian independence. Its participation was then allied   with Masjumi, but then it built its own political party independently. The passive participation of  NU Women Cadres (Muslimat began to be recognized in 1938, and then it just began to be recognized as active participant in 1946.  Women of NU became active participants to promote gender equality in 1954. Five years later, it became galdiator participant, and began to show its gender roles simultaneously by raising the strategic issues aimed at enforcing the rights, resources of human being and aspirations for women to participate in public life, including practical politics.الملخص :ظهرت الحركة السياسية لنهضة العلماء كجمعية دينية والمنظمة التابعة لها " المسلمات" عبر التاريخ. والسؤال المطروح هو ما مدى اشتراك "نهضة العلملاء" في السياسة الوطنية ومدى وكليّة المسلمات في المجال السياسي. حاولت هذه المقالة – بالمدخل التجنيسي –

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Safe and timely access to effective and appropriate medication through primary care settings is a major concern for all countries addressing both acute and chronic disease burdens. Legislation for nurses and other professionals allied to medicine to prescribe exists in a minority of countries, with more considering introducing legislation. Although there is variation in the range of medicines permitted to be prescribed, questions remain as to the contribution prescribing by nurses and professionals allied to medicine makes to the care of patients in primary care and what is the evidence on which clinicians, commissioners of services and policy makers can consider this innovation. Methods A integrative review of literature on non-medical prescribing in primary care was undertaken guided by dimensions of health care quality: effectiveness, acceptability, efficiency and access. Results 19 papers of 17 empirical studies were identified which provided evidence of patient outcome of non medical prescribing in primary care settings. The majority were undertaken in the UK with only one each from the USA, Canada, Botswana and Zimbabwe. Only two studies investigated clinical outcomes of non-medical prescribing. Seven papers reported on qualitative designs and four of these had fewer than ten participants. Most studies reported that non medical prescribing was widely accepted and viewed positively by patients and professionals. Conclusions Primary health care is the setting where timely access to safe and appropriate medicines is most critical for the well-being of any population. The gradual growth over time of legislative authority and in the numbers of non-medical prescribers, particularly nurses, in some countries suggests that the acceptability of non-medical prescribing is based on the perceived value to the health care system as a whole. Our review suggests that there are substantial gaps in the knowledge base to help evidence

Some researchers believe that investors have much more tendency to invest in companies that apply income smoothing. Investors believe that smoother companies have different return and risk investment.  Some studies prove about different return and risk investment between the smoother and non-smoother companies. On the other hand, the rest studies state that there is no difference between smoother and non-smoother companies. This study tries to examine the difference of investment risk and return between smoother and non-smoother manufacturing

    2000-07-01

    Crack closure is held to be responsible for very low fatigue crack growth rates in many alloys such as Al-Li 2090 T8E41, and early crack face contact during unloading or prolonged contact during loading seems to reduce the driving force for crack extension. High resolution x-ray computed tomography (i.e., microtomography) allows one to image the entire volumes of samples and to quantify opening as a function of applied load over the entire crack surface. Crack closure results are reported for a fatigue crack grown under load ratio R = 0.1 in a compact tension sample of Al-Li 2090 T8E41; the crack was free to choose its path unconstrained by side-grooves which are normally used to suppress crack deflection. The inter-relationship between crack path, crack face contact and applied load level are discussed.

  20. Laser-induced reversion of $\\delta^{'}$ precipitates in an Al-Li alloy: Study on temperature rise in pulsed laser atom probe

    2015-01-01

    The influence of tuning the laser energy during the analyses on the resulting microstructure in a specimen utilizing an ultra-fast laser assisted atom probe was demonstrated by a case study of a binary Al-Li alloy. The decomposition parameters, such as the size, number density, volume fraction and composition of $\\delta^{'}$ precipitates, were carefully monitored after each analysis. A simple model was employed to estimate the corresponding specimen temperature for each value of the laser energy. The results indicated that the corresponding temperatures for the laser energy in the range of 10 to 80 pJ are located inside the miscibility gap of the binary Al-Li phase diagram and fall into the metastable equilibrium field. In addition, the corresponding temperature for a laser energy of 100 pJ was in fairly good agreement with reported range of $\\delta^{'}$ solvus temperature, suggesting a result of reversion upon heating due to laser pulsing.

    Full Text Available Mekanisme erupsi suatu gunungapi dapat dilihat berdasarkan karakteristik dan bagaimana model kantong magma gunungapi tersebut.  Karakteristik dan posisi kantong magma dapat diestimasi dengan mengunakan metode seismik yaitu dengan menganalisa rekaman sinyal seismik dari suatu gempa vulkanik maupun tektonik. Analisis terhadap rekaman sinyal gempa vulkanik (tipe A dan tipe B dan tremor harmonik yang didapatkan dari 3 stasiun seismik yaitu Ijen (Ijen, Terowongan Ijen (TRWI dan Kawah Utara Ijen (KWUI dilakukan dengan cara menyeleksi sinyal  berdasarkan waveform dan dilihat pola spektralnya untuk mendapatkan kandungan frekuensinya. Analisis hiposenter dilakukan untuk mengetahui kedalaman gempa vulkanik dan mengestmasi dimanakah dan bagaimana model kantong magmanya. Dari perhitungan diperoleh sebaran posisi hiposenter berada pada kedalaman berkisar 0–2.500 meter dibawah Kawah Ijen untuk Gempa VB, 2.000–2.500 meter dibawah Kawah Ijen untuk Gempa VA dan 5.000–50.000 meter dibawah permukaan laut untuk Gempa Tektonik Lokal.  Hasil penelitian menunjukkan daerah aseismik berada pada kedalaman lebih dari 4000 meter dibawah permukaan laut, yang diindikasikan sebagai kantung magma. Adapun proses internal yang terjadi adalah lebih disebabkan oleh adanya pergeseran patahan karena terjadi peningkatan aktivitas magma. Dan didapatkan pula bahwa model kantong magmanya bersistem ganda. Pada model ini, Letusan dapat dipandang sebagai terjadinya proses pengosongan kantong magma dangkal.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    A. G. IVANOV

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available The article analyses the problems which emerged on the eve of the Second World War: the European crisis of 1939, Anglo-French guarantees to countries of Eastern Europe, talks between the USSR, Great Britain and France and the Soviet-German non-aggression Pact. In conditions of the acutest crisis a question of general security acquired a key meaning. To stop the aggressor and to prevent global catastrophe was only possible by collective efforts of the great powers and their allies. Great Britain and France guaranteed independence of several countries of Eastern Europe, but they could not compensate the absence of a grand anti-German alliance. The USSR was striving to erect a system of collective security, but its possibilities were limited. More than that Great Britain and France did not refuse the idea of appeasing Germany at the expense of Poland, and this actually excluded their participation in anti-German coalition. The unwillingness of the Western powers to cooperate with the USSR closely showed itself at the AngloFrench-Soviet talks in spring and summer 1939. As a result of this the USSR, having no alternative, agreed to sign the non-aggression Pact with Germany.

    The Consultation and Relational Empathy (CARE) Measure (Mercer et al., 2004) is a patient-rated experience measure of practitioner empathy, developed and validated within adult health services. This study reports the feasibility, acceptability, reliability and validity of three adapted versions of the original CARE measure for the paediatric setting, namely the Visual CARE Measure 5Q, 10Q and 10Q Parent (also known as the Paediatric CARE Measure). Three hundred and sixty-nine participants (N = 149 children (40%) and N = 220 parents (60%)) completed the measure following consultation with an Allied Health Professional (AHP). AHPs felt it was feasible to use the measure in routine practice and the majority of children and parents found the measure easy to understand (98%) and complete (98%). Internal reliability (Cronbach's α) was .746 for the 5Q, .926 for the 10Q and .963 for the 10Q parent. Few participants used the 'not applicable' response (N = 28 (8%)), suggesting high content validity. AHPs found the measures relevant (95%) and useful (90%) and reported that they were likely to use them again (96%). The Visual CARE Measure shows promise as a useful tool to enable children and their parents to give their views. Further research on the tool's reliability and validity is required. PMID:25352539

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available We describe a new fossil species of Myriapora, M. sciutoi n. sp., which is similar in general appearance to the Recent, Atlantic, deep-sea species M. bugei d'Hondt, 1975. The new species has been found in sediments of the late Tortonian-Messinian of NW Morocco, and the Gelasian of NE Sicily and south Calabria, Italy. The main diagnostic characters of the new species are: erect, rigid growth, with lateral branches developing at right angles; arrangement of the zooids in whorls; dimorphic orifice, which has a very marked sinus in autozooids; prominent ooecia usually present in all the zooids from the same whorl. The previous diagnosis of the genus has been amended in order to include the presence of species with zooids arranged in whorls, in addition to those arranged quincuncially. A generic reassignment to Myriapora or to the allied genus Leieschara for all the known species to date is also proposed. The geographical and stratigraphical distribution of M. sciutoi n. sp. suggests a recolonization of the Mediterranean, after the Messinian Salinity Crisis, from founder populations that have survived in the Atlantic.

    2007-01-01

    Objective: This paper provides an overview of the state of evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing and selected allied health professions and a synopsis of current trends in incorporating EBP into clinical education and practice in these fields. This overview is intended to better equip librarians with a general understanding of the fields and relevant information resources. Included Professions: Professions are athletic training, audiology, health education and promotion, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, physician assisting, respiratory care, and speech-language pathology. Approach: Each section provides a description of a profession, highlighting changes that increase the importance of clinicians' access to and use of the profession's knowledgebase, and a review of each profession's efforts to support EBP. The paper concludes with a discussion of the librarian's role in providing EBP support to the profession. Conclusions: EBP is in varying stages of growth among these fields. The evolution of EBP is evidenced by developments in preservice training, growth of the literature and resources, and increased research funding. Obstacles to EBP include competing job tasks, the need for additional training, and prevalent attitudes and behaviors toward research among practitioners. Librarians' skills in searching, organizing, and evaluating information can contribute to furthering the development of EBP in a given profession. PMID:17971887

  13. From “allies without alliance” to concerted action: Romania and Finland in the aftermath of the Operation Barbarossa (1941

    2010-11-01

    Full Text Available This study describes the relationship between two small and lesser states joining the German attack against Soviet Union in an attempt to recapture the territories lost to Soviet Union in 1940. It is conceived as an in-depth analysis of the Romanian-Finnish relations based on the criticism of archival sources discovered in the Romanian, Finnish and British archives. Becoming “allies without alliance” almost overnight, the relations between the two countries acknowledged a quick shift from low profile bonds to an agreement based on a combination of balance of power and joint action. The aim was to remove the threat Russia was posing to the two countries and to increase their influence at a peace conference to be open following the expected defeat of their big neighbour. Romania was the advocate of closer ties between the two countries keeping in line with its search for influence rather than autonomy in its foreign relations, while Finland was more prudent consistent with its choice for autonomy rather than influence.

  14. The ultilization of whole-body autoradiography and allied tracer techniques in distribution and biotransformation studies of N-nitrosamines

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The tissue disposition of various N-nitrosamines has been examined by whole-body autoradiography and allied tracer techniques in a series of studies. Tracing of N-nitrosamine-metabolizing tissues was a major purpose of the studies. The data obtained provide evidence that the in vivo localization of N-nitrosamine metabolites in various tissues is almost invariably due to local metabolism in the same tissues and that the tumourigenesis by N-nitrosamines is to a considerable extent correlated with this metabolism. The epithelial linings of the upper digestive tract and respiratory pathways were usually very active in N-nitrosamine metabolism, and these tissues also were prevalent sites for N-nitrosamine carcinogenesis. The presence of cytochrome P-450 activity has been shown in these structures and may normally play a role in defending the body against unrestrained uptake of xenobiotics. However, noxious effects may instead be induced for chemicals bioacivated by cytochrome P-450-dependent reactions, such as N-nitrosamines. (author)

The different stakeholders reported that it helped improve the quality of life of people with disabilities and contributed to community development.DOI: 10.5463/dcid.v22i3.110

  17. IE Information Notice No. 85-16: Time/current trip curve discrepancy of ITE/Siemens-Allis molded case circuit breaker

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The staff recently received information from the Seabrook Nuclear Station describing a deficiency of the magnetic instantaneous trip element in the ITE-Siemens-Allis HE-3-M040 molded-case circuit breaker. These circuit breakers were housed in electrical panels supplied by Gould, Inc., Westminister, Maryland. The deficiency was discovered during the testing of an incoming shipment of these breakers. Specifically, the licensee reported that testing of an incoming shipment of 15 of these ITE/Siemens-Allis circuit breakers revealed that 10 of the 15 failed to pass the instantaneous magnetic overcurrent trip test. The pickup current values for the failed trip elements were higher than the published ITE time-current curve for this type of circuit breaker. However, the licensee also reports that approximately 75 of the same model of ITE/Siemens-Allis circuit breakers supplied in previous shipments have rested satisfactorily. Further investigation into the problem by the manufacturer led to the conclusion that the time-current trip range should be 600 to 1,000 amperes and not 400 to 700 amperes as previously published by the manufacturer. The manufacturer is now reissuing a new set of correct time-current curves that reflect the trip range of 600 to 1,000 amperes

Methods A review of organizational theory and a qualitative study of 9 practices was used to design an intervention which was applied in four Divisions of General Practice and 26 urban practices. Clinical record review and qualitative interviews with participants were used to determine the key lessons from its implementation. Results Facilitating teamwork across organizational boundaries was very challenging. The quality of the relationship between professionals was of key importance. This was enabled by joint education and direct communication between providers. Practice nurses were key links between general practices and allied and community health services. Conclusions Current arrangements for Team Care planning provide increased opportunities for access to allied health. However the current paper based system is insufficient to build relationships or effectively share roles as part of a patient care team. Facilitation is feasible but constrained by barriers to communication and trust.

Due to the specific characteristics of (thin films, the use of polymer films in various aplications has singnificantly increased. Alginate and chitosan are natural polymers, which have potential as a raw material for the manufacture of composite films. This paper presents the preparation and characterization of alginate, chitosan and chitosan-alginate composite films. The film characterization included permeability test, degree of swelling, mechanical property, morphology (by SEM, and surface chemistry (by FTIR. The results showed that alginate films have a higher permeability ​​and degree of swelling (DS than chitosan films. Both permeability and DS decreased with increasing concentration for both alginate and chitosan films. DS experiments showed that the films have the highest DS in water followed by ethanol 95% and ethanol >99.9%, respectively. The mechanical strength of chitosan films was larger than alginate films. Alginate-chitosan composite films prepared by layer by layer method showed better characteristics than the composite films prepared by blending of alginate and chitosan solutions. Meningkatnya aplikasi film polimer di berbagai industri tidak terlepas dari keunggulan yang dimiliki.

Dosa yang secara umum adalah tindakan manusia melanggar perintah dan norma serta aturan Tuhan, secara dogmatis, merupakan kesalahan krusial, dimana manusia dianggap melanggar rencana-rencana Tuhan. Keserakahan Adam dan Hawa melanggar perintah Tuhan dengan memakan buah pohon pengetahuan, telah menyebabkan putusnya Rahmat Tuhan kepada manusia. Adam dan Hawa telah menjerumuskan dirinya dan anak cucunya dalam dosa warisan. Kehadiran Yesus Kristus, sebagai oknum Tuhan, yang menebus dosa manusia dengan kematiannya di tiang salib, adalah bentuk Kasih Tuhan kepada hambahamba- Nya yang berdosa.

Dalam era pasca reformasi, kegiatan misi tidak hanya sebatas kristenisasi umat Islam.

    Full Text Available Di UPT – PSTKP (Unit Pelaksana Teknis – Pengembangan Seni dan Teknologi Keramik dan Porselin Bali hampir setiap ruangan dilengkapi sebuah komputer, kecuali dalam ruangan rapat, ruangan laboratorium, dan ruangan produksi. Para operator komputer tersebut biasanya melaksanakan tugas sehari-harinya di depan komputer tidak lebih dari dua jam, lalu beralih ke pekerjaan lain yang tidak menggunakan komputer dan selanjutnya melanjutkan lagi pekerjaannya dengan komputer. Hal ini dilakukan untuk mengurangi rasa jenuh, penat, dan kelelahan di mata selama bekerja di depan komputer. Bila dilihat dari sisi keefektivitan tenaga operator, cara kerja seperti ini sudah jelas tidak menguntungkan bagi lembaga karena waktu kerja terbuang dan sudah pasti kaitannya pada produktivitas yang tidak optimal. Kondisi tersebut tentu tidak sesuai dengan konsep ergonomi. Salah satunya adalah tidak tercapainya peningkatan produktivitas. Dalam ergonomi dikenal istilah keluhan subjektif, yaitu tanda-tanda yang menyatakan adanya kelelahan yang dialami orang akibat beban kerja yang membebaninya oleh karena interaksi pekerja dengan jenis pekerjaannya, rancangan tempat kerja, peralatan kerja, dan lingkungan kerja. Kelelahan dibedakan dalam tiga kategori yaitu menurunnya aktivitas, menurunnya motivasi, dan adanya kelelahan fisik akibat keadaan umum. Jenis penelitian ini adalah cross-sectional dengan rancangan pre and post test group design, melibatkan sepuluh orang operator sebagai subjek penelitian. Instrumen yang digunakan adalah kuesioner kelelahan 30 items of rating scale. Pendataan dilakukan sebelum dan setelah 2 jam kerja. Data yang diperoleh dianalisis dengan uji t-paired pada tingkat kemaknaan α = 0,05. Hasilnya adalah operator komputer yang bekerja selama 2 jam mengalami peningkatan kelelahan secara umum sebesar 37,29%; pelemahan aktivitas kerja sebesar 39,08%; pelemahan motivasi kerja sebesar 28,64% dan meningkatnya kelelahan fisik sebesar 42,15%.

    The incineration of wastes generates other wastes (fly ashes) that concentrate a large amount of polluting substances (heavy metals, salts..). French law requires a stabilization of this kind of wastes before their storage. Today vitrification can be considered as an alternative to the stabilization and storage way, the vitrified products could be seen as an interesting material in the building industry or in road works. A few years ago the municipality of Bordeaux decided to launch a demonstration program and a REFIOM (fly ashes) vitrification unit has been operating since 1997. (A.C.)

  8. Effect of specimen orientation and welding on the fracture and fatigue properties of 2195 Al-Li alloy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In view of the use of 2195 Al-Li alloy in the construction of super-light-weight external fuel tank of space shuttles, bulkheads of reusable single-stage-to-orbit launch vehicles and in combat ground vehicles, the dependence of tensile properties, fracture toughness and fatigue resistance of this alloy on the specimen orientation and welding is very important and was studied. The T8 base alloy, with primary strengthening precipitates of T1 (Al2CuLi) phase, contained mainly brass-type texture. After welding with AA 4043 filler alloy, the fusion zone (FZ) consisted of T (AlLiSi) phase and in the heat-affected zone (HAZ) T1 phase was replaced by TB (Al7Cu4Li) phase, and micro-cracks were observed. The post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) resulted in the spheroidization of primary T phase and the precipitation of more T particles in the FZ, and the dissolution of TB phase and the re-precipitation of T1 phase in the HAZ. The yield strength, fracture toughness and fatigue threshold of the 2195-T8 alloy was observed to depend on the specimen orientation, with the lowest values obtained at 45 deg. to the rolling direction. Welding resulted in a reduction in the tensile properties and fatigue strength. The post-weld heat treatment enhanced the yield strength, but no increase in fatigue strength was observed. Fracture mechanisms in various cases were evaluated by SEM examination of fracture surfaces and are discussed

    Purpose Despite having an obstetrician/gynecologist (ob/gyn) workforce comparable to the national average, Georgia is ranked 50th in maternal mortality and 40th in infant mortality. The Georgia Maternal and Infant Health Research Group (GMIHRG) was founded in 2010 to evaluate and address this paradox. Description In the several years since GMIHRG's inception, its graduate allied health student researchers and advisors have collaborated with community partners to complete several requisite research initiatives. Their initial work demonstrated that over half the Georgia areas outside metropolitan Atlanta lack adequate access to obstetric services, and their subsequent research evaluated the reasons for and the consequences of this maldistribution of obstetric providers. Assessment In order to translate their workforce and outcomes data for use in policymaking and programming, GMIHRG created reader-friendly reports for distribution to a wide variety of stakeholders and prepared concise, compelling presentations with targeted recommendations for change. This commitment to advocacy ultimately enabled them to: (a) inspire the Georgia Study Committees on Medicaid Reform and Medical Education, (b) influence Georgia General Assembly abortion bills, medical scholarship/loan legislation, and appropriations, and (c) motivate programming initiatives to improve midwifery education and perinatal regionalization in Georgia. Conclusion GMIHRG members have employed inventive research methods and maximized collaborative partnerships to enable their data on Georgia's maternal and infant outcomes and obstetric workforce to effectively inform state organizations and policymakers. With this unique approach, GMIHRG serves as a cost-efficient and valuable model for student engagement in the translation of research into advocacy efforts, policy change, and innovative programming.

    Full Text Available Pengembangan vaksin terhadap malaria yang merupakan penyakit yang mematikan tetap menjadi satu prioritas kesehatan masyarakat global, termasuk pemanfaatan parasit iradiasi sebagai bahan vaksin. Imunisasi dengan sporozoit iradiasi mampu memberikan imunitas protektif pada hewan coba dan sukarelawan. Mekanisme sistem kekebalan tubuh ini banyak dipelajari karena merupakan faktor penting dalam pengembangan vaksin, demikian halnya profil dan/atau ekspresi protein pasca iradiasi yang terkait erat dengan keamanan dan aspek lain dari bahan vaksin. Meskipun telah melalui penelitian yang ekstensif, vaksin yang aman dan protektif belum dapat diperoleh karena masih diperlukan pengetahuan yang lebih mendalam mengenai mekanisme imunitas dan protein dalam litbang malaria. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa sel limfosit T berperan penting dalam pengaturan respon imun dan pembentukan memori imunologik yang mengontrol dan mengeliminasi infeksi. Sitokin proinflamasi seperti interleukin-12 (IL-12, interferon-gamma (IFN-γ, dan tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α juga merupakan mediator esensial dari imunitas protektif pada malaria eritrositik. Berbagai pendekatan lain terkait respon imun seperti genetika molekuler saat ini sedang dilakukan. Studi juga menunjukkan bahwa profil protein bergantung pada beberapa faktor yang akan dibahas lebih lanjut dalam makalah. The development of vaccine against malaria as the deadly disease remains the global public health priority; and it includes the use of irradiated parasites as vaccine materials. Immunization with irradiated sporozoites could provide protective immunity in animals and volunteers. The mechanism of this body immunity system has been studied widely due to its important role in the development of vaccines and profiles and/or protein expression post-irradiation which are closely related to safety and other aspects of vaccine materials.

    Full Text Available Business process reengineering is fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of an organization's business processes that leads the organization to achieve dramatic improvement in business performance. Many firms have successfully embraced this new innovation paradigm to achieve orders of magnitude improvements in cost, eficiency, quality and value. Even more firms are seeking opportunities to apply reengineering and methodologies to assist them in doing so. The recognition of reengineering as a new management paradigm emerged in the 1990's, though it may be argued that the principle of reengineering has been applied well before then. The early 1990's saw world wide interest in reengineering. Consequently, many organizations have reported their first-cycle experiences in reengineering. Reengineering practices in the period of the 1990's was largerly characterized by application to operational processes and emphasis on operational measure of time, cost, and quality. Quite recently, a more strategic flavor of reengineering has been advocated. One of the hopes of new thinking is that by trancending microscopic concern of operational strategy, it would help the organization derive significantly greater value out of the reengineering effort. This paper presents: 1. The concept of reengineering 2. Various problems in business process reengineering. 3. The rigorous methodology for organizing reengineering activities.

Saat ini kesenian lengger lebih mengarah pada fungsi hiburan dan komersial. Hal ini membuat penari lengger rentan terhadap eksploitasi baik secara ekonomi maupun seksual. Pertanyaan penelitian ini adalah bagaimana bentuk pertunjukan lengger; bagaimana tanggapan masyarakat terhadap keberadaan penari lengger;  bagaimana bentuk eksploitasi yang dialami oleh penari lengger; dan apa respon penari lengger tentang tindakan eksploitasi itu. Metode penelitian yang digunakan adalah kualitatif, dengan analisis data interpretatif. Lokasi penelitian di desa Selanegara, Sumpiuh, Banyumas. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa ada beberapa unsur yang terkait dengan bentuk pertunjukan lengger, yaitu: pemain, gerak, iringan musik, tata rias dan busana, serta tempat pementasan. Citra negatif penari lengger biasanya diasosiakan dengan gerakan tari yang erotis sehingga dapat memancing pelecehan, seperti diraba, dicolek, dipeluk dan dicium oleh para pengibing. Bentuk eksploitasi ekonomi terjadi karena tuntutan ekonomi sehingga mendorong para penari mengeksploitasi tubuhnya untuk mendapatkan uang.  Perlakuan tidak senonoh dari penonton merupakan bagian dari resiko profesi yang harus dijalani. Fenomena ini diharapkan dapat mendorong masyarakat dan pemerintah untuk melindungi para pelaku kesenian dari tindakan eksploitasi.Originally lengger is performed in ceremonies and rituals in rural ceremonies associated with fertility. Currently the performance of lengger has more entertainment and commercial functions. This makes the dancers vulnerable to exploitation lengger both economically and sexually. The objectiveof this study is to explore the form of lengger show, forms of exploitation experienced by dancers lengger, and the responses of the lengger dancer towards exploitation.

    Background Implementation of evidence-based practice (EBP) is regarded as core competence to improve healthcare quality. In the current study, we investigated the EBP of six groups of professionals: physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists, technicians, and other allied healthcare personnel. Methods A structured questionnaire survey of regional hospitals throughout Taiwan was conducted by post in 2011. Questionnaires were mailed to all healthcare workers of 11 randomly selected hospitals. Linear and logistic regression models were used to examine predictors for implementing EBP. Results In total, 6,160 returned questionnaires, including 645 from physicians, 4,206 from nurses, 430 from pharmacists, 179 from physical therapists, 537 from technicians, and 163 from other allied healthcare professionals, were valid for the analysis. Physicians and pharmacists were more aware of EBP than were the other professional groups (p < 0.001). Positive attitudes toward and beliefs in EBP were significantly lower among nurses than in the other groups (p < 0.001). Physicians had more sufficient knowledge and skills of EBP than did the other professionals (p < 0.001); in addition, they implemented EBP for clinical decision-making more often and perceived fewer personal barriers to EBP (p < 0.001). Multivariate logistic regression analyses showed that EBP implementation was associated with the following characteristics of participants: EBP training, having a faculty position, academic degree, one's profession, and perceptions (beliefs, attitudes, knowledge, skills and barriers). Conclusions This study depicts various levels of EBP implementation among medical, nursing, pharmacological, and allied healthcare personnel. There were significant differences in their implementation of EBP. We observed that certain factors were associated with EBP implementation, including personal backgrounds and perceptions toward EBP. The data suggest that strategies for
