Toronto Public Health conducted a pilot project to assess the feasibility of menu labelling by independent restaurants. The pilot project was informed by consultations with the industry and other jurisdictions that have implemented a similar initiative. Public Health Dietitians worked closely with these restaurants to help them work toward posting calories and sodium on their menus. This paper reports on the findings of a feasibility assessment that took a mixed-methods approach resulting in a comprehensive process evaluation...

Infrared (IR) p-polarized multiple-angle incidence resolution spectrometry (pMAIRS) is a powerful tool for analyzing the molecular orientation in an organic thin film. In particular, pMAIRS works powerfully for a thin film with a highly rough surface irrespective of degree of the crystallinity. Recently, the optimal experimental condition has comprehensively been revealed, with which the accuracy of the analytical results has largely been improved. Regardless, some unresolved matters still remain. A structurally isotropic sample, for example, yields different peak intensities in the in-plane and out-of-plane spectra...

BACKGROUND: Social care-related quality of life is a key outcome indicator used in the evaluation of social care interventions and policy. It is not, however, always possible to collect quality of life data by self-report even with adaptations for people with cognitive or communication impairments. A new proxy-report version of the Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit (ASCOT) measure of social care-related quality of life was developed to address the issues of wider inclusion of people with cognitive or communication difficulties who may otherwise be systematically excluded...

In contrast to the narrowing of options in academic careers, the bioscience industry offers robust employment opportunities for STEM-trained workers, especially those who display both scientific and business talent. Unfortunately, traditional science programs typically lack curricular features that develop this type of worker. The North Carolina State University Master of Microbial Biotechnology (MMB) program facilitates industry-specific experiential learning to fill this training gap. Similar programs often rely on a single industry internship to provide students relevant work experience, but completion of one internship might not suffice to position students for employment in a highly competitive job market...

Achieving ready enantioselective access to multi-stereocenter containing cyclopentyl rings is an area of great significance to organic synthesis. In this work we describe a general protocol for accessing multi-stereocenter containing cyclopentanoids from simple N-alkynyloxazolidinones (Ox-ynamides). This protocol involves conversion of Ox-ynamides into Ox-activated divinyl and aryl vinyl ketones that undergo facile Nazarov cyclization with excellent chemo-, regio- and stereocontrol. The Ox auxiliary directs all aspects of reactivity and selectivity, both the electrocyclization and in the subsequent transformations of the resulting oxyallyl intermediate...

The conventional procedure for the construction of recombinant expression vector of a target gene includes PCR cloning and restriction enzyme mediated subcloning, which is time-consuming and sometimes troublesome because of the inefficiency of ligation. A variety of ligase-independent PCR cloning strategies have been developed, but they either involve complicated PCR procedures or need other DNA modifying enzymes. In this study, we report the design, and construction of an omnipotent expression vector pOmni, with which a target gene can be easily cloned through innovative selection-free PCR recombination cloning strategy with only one pair of primer and two times of PCR in one work day, without using any restriction enzymes, ligase and other DNA modifying enzymes...

INTRODUCTION: An electronic healthcare record (EHR) system, when used by healthcare providers, improves the quality of care for patients and helps to lower costs. Information collected from manual or electronic health records can also be used for purposes not directly related to patient care delivery, in which case it is termed secondary use. EHR systems facilitate the collection of this secondary use data, which can be used for research purposes like observational studies, taking advantage of improvement in the structuring and retrieval of patient information...

In Louisiana, 33% of adolescents and 28% of children are overweight or obese (Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals, 2011). It is projected that as many as 24,000 more children in Louisiana may become obese by 2020 if the trend continues (Broyles et al, 2011). Researchers have identified several strategies to address overweight among youth, but more work needs to be done in our classrooms to teach university students the skills necessary to become real-world ready for working with children and adolescents who struggle with weight management...

OBJECTIVE: Individuals with disabilities are more likely to live in poverty, have more health issues, and be less likely to be employed than their same-aged peers. Although these issues may be attenuated by vocational rehabilitation services, amotivation and ambivalence to employment can limit the readiness of persons with disabilities to engage in these services. Drawing on self-efficacy, self-determination, and stages of change theories, the purpose of this study was to develop and test an integrated self-determined work motivation model for people with disabilities...

The aim of this work was to study thermal inactivation kinetics of Listeria monocytogenes on vacuum-packaged food surfaces. The kinetics were first determined on model agar systems (BHI agar plates), mimicking cooked meat products, which have the same characteristics (pH, sodium chloride (NaCl) or sodium lactate (NaL) content and thickness) as the cooked meat products. Then, in order to validate how well the thermal inactivation on the model agar system simulated inactivation on real products, inactivation kinetics of L...
