We consider the data reported in the target article with respect to key motivational frameworks and characteristics, including grit and self-determined forms of motivation. Empirical data are reviewed that highlight the relationships between these concepts and practice and success. We highlight the concept of grit as a defining characteristic of the super-elite athletes, in reference to both their continued perseverance in the face of obstacles, as well as the increased motivation seemingly caused by such obstacles or setbacks...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Poor implant placement or thin gingival tissue and progressive bone resorption may lead to the dark metal color showing through the peri-implant soft tissue. Whether the dark color can be adequately masked is unclear. PURPOSE: The purpose of this in vitro study was to test the color masking effect of porcelain applied on titanium used in fabricating the polished collar of tissue level implants. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Type 4 commercially pure titanium disks and 5 porcelain dentin shades (A2, A3, B2, C2, and D3) were used...

We investigated human leukocyte antigen (HLA) profiles for Tunisians with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), their families, and a sample of unrelated healthy Tunisians in order to identify HLA specificities associated with familial NPC. HLA-A, -B, and -DRB1 typing was successful for 36 NPC patients, 72 unaffected family members, and 130 community controls, and the chi square or Fisher exact test was used to compare allele frequencies between cases and controls. We observed a consistent protective effect of HLA-DRB1*10 on NPC development...

PEEK is a promising polymer possessing high mechanical strength and biocompatibility and therefore it can be associated to titanium for biomedical applications. This study aimed at producing Ti6Al4V-PEEK joints with enhanced adhesion through laser-structuring Ti6Al4V treatments. Ti6Al4V cylindrical substrates were prepared by two types of surface treatments: alumina blasting and laser structuring. The holes number and size in laser-structured surfaces was varied. PEEK was then hot pressed against the metallic substrate to completely filling the surface cavities...

The objective of this short-term longitudinal study was to examine individual versus classroom peer effects of grit on later individual literacy achievement in elementary school. The dual language learner, largely Latina/o sample included students from the 3rd through the 5th grades. Participants completed a literacy achievement performance task at 3 time points over 4 months, in addition to student-reported grit at the first time point. Classroom peer grit, not individual grit, was a strong, significant predictor of an individual's later literacy achievement, adjusting for previous literacy achievement, age, gender, home language, and classroom clusters...

Obesity and depression are prevalent complications during pregnancy and associated with severe health risks for the mother and the child. The co-occurrence of both conditions may lead to a particular high-risk group. This review provides a systematic overview of the association between pre-pregnancy obesity and antenatal or postnatal depression. We conducted a systematic electronic literature search for English language articles published between January 1990 and March 2017. Inclusion criteria were (a) adult pregnant women, (b) women with pre-pregnancy obesity and normal weight controls, (c) definition of obesity according to the IOM 1990/2009 criteria, (d) established depression measure, and (e) report on the association between pre-pregnancy obesity and antenatal or postnatal depression...

Here we examined the relation between mind wandering and the personality trait of 'grit.' Our hypothesis was that because mind wandering leads to a disruption of momentary goal completion, the tendency to mind wander might be inversely related to the completion of long-term goals that require sustained interest and effort (i.e., grittiness). In Study 1 we used online questionnaires and found that in everyday life, the propensity to mind wander was negatively correlated with individuals' self-reported grittiness...

Intra-oral grinding is often required to optimize occlusion of all-ceramic restorations. The effect of burs of different grit size on the fracture resistance of veneered zirconia crowns was investigated in this study. Forty-eight standardized zirconia copings were produced. The ceramic veneer was designed with a positive ellipsoidal defect on the palatal aspect of the crowns. To simulate adjustment of dental restorations by burs, this palatal defect was removed by use of three different diamond-coated burs with grit sizes 46, 107, or 151 μm (fine, medium, or coarse, respectively)...

Several years of observations enabled us to assess the extent and variability of heavy metal contamination (Zn, Cu and Pb) of the sludge of the municipal stormwater treatment plant (the town of Puławy, Poland). In terms of size (high capacity) and innovation, it is the only facility of this kind in the country. It collects rainwater run-offs from two catchments (separate inlets) with a total area of about 500 ha. The concentration of the analysed metals is characterised by a large spatial and temporal diversity...

STATEMENT OF PROBLEM: Poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK), a high-performance semi-crystalline thermoplastic polymer, has been employed to replace the metallic implant components in orthopedics. There were various studies performed in accordance to medical grade PEEK, but the relationship between titanium dioxide (TiO2)-coated PEEK, TiO2-blended PEEK, and untreated PEEK still remains complicated, even undefined. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to compare and quantify the osteogenic potential of untreated PEEK, TiO2-coated PEEK and TiO2-blended PEEK...

A 34-year-old male presented with an 8-month history of passing increasingly painful 'grit' in his ejaculate. Semen analysis was normal as were urinary and blood tests. T1-weighted MRI revealed several bilateral high-signal areas measuring up to 1 cm in diameter, located in the seminal vesicles. These were confirmed as calculi on T2-weighted imaging and a seminal vesiculogram, with no drainage from the left ejaculatory duct and only minimal from the right duct. He is currently awaiting a robot-assisted laparoscopic vesiculotomy after completion of family...

Recently, liquid phase crystallization of thin silicon films has emerged as a candidate for thin-film photovoltaics. On 10 μm thin absorbers, wafer-equivalent morphologies and open-circuit voltages were reached, leading to 13.2% record efficiency. However, short-circuit current densities are still limited, mainly due to optical losses at the glass-silicon interface. While nano-structures at this interface have been shown to efficiently reduce reflection, up to now these textures caused a deterioration of electronic silicon material quality...

Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an alternative therapeutic option for severe aortic stenosis. Aortic regurgitation (AR) is commonly observed after TAVI and increases the mortality rate. We hypothesized that the influence of significant AR, defined as that more severe than mild AR, on survival rate after TAVI might differ according to the baseline left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro BNP) level. We categorized 856 patients who underwent transfemoral TAVI into 2 groups according to their baseline LVEF (<40 and ≥40%) and NT-pro BNP levels (≤5000 and >5000 pg/mL)...

Angiogenesis play a crucial role in the regeneration of hard and soft tissue around dental titanium (Ti) implant. Enamel matrix derivative (EMD) promotes tissue regeneration and stimulates angiogenesis but its effect on the angiogenesis on Ti surfaces was never investigated. The effect of EMD on the angiogenic activity of endothelial cells cultured on pre-treated smooth Ti (PT), acidetched (A), coarse-grit blasted and acid-etched (SLA) surfaces and tissue culture plastic (TCP) in the presence or absence of EMD was investigated...

The excessive enrichment of trace elements, such as Pb and Cd, from food may contribute to the decline of migratory red-crowned cranes (Grus japonensis) in China. To test this prediction, we determined the concentrations of Pb and Cd, as well as further macro and trace elements (Ca, Mg, Cu, Zn) in the target species and their prey (sediment, reed root, mollusk, arthropods, and common fish species) in both the wintering (Yancheng wetland) and breeding sites (Zhalong wetland) of cranes in China. The maximum concentrations of Pb (130 mg kg(-1) dry weight (dw)) and Cd (10...
