The number of children diagnosed with mental and behavioral health issues is increasing each year. Early identification and intervention for these issues are vital to improving long-term outcomes. School nurses are among the frontline healthcare providers for school-age children, screening and coordinating care for multiple physical and mental health conditions. This article describes the implementation of a national mental health online training program at a local district. Outcomes of the implementation project and implications for school nurses are discussed...

Chemotherapy resistance, the molecular mechanism of which is complex and has not been fully understood, poses a major challenge in the treatment of patients with non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The dysregulation of microRNAs (miRs) has been reported to serve a pivotal role in the development of cancer and drug resistance. In the present study, reverse transcription‑quantitative polymerase chain reaction analysis revealed a significant increase in miR‑328 and a significant decrease in phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) mRNA expression levels within tumor tissues from patients with cisplatin‑resistant NSCLC compared with those of cisplatin‑sensitive NSCLC patients...

The image of the professions of family doctor and dentist in the Netherlands was investigated by means of a questionnaire distributed online and in four cities. In total, 270 questionnaires were analysed. The dentist was seen more as a businessman, a solo performer for whom the interests of the patient were less highly prioritised, who,was less communicative, more associated with pain, more distant, less open to dialogue and could be trusted less than the general practitioner. Respondents also felt less safe at the dentist's office than at the general practitioner's...

Classical Conditioning plays a vital role for learning in every mammal. It is is based on unsupervised neural
 learning embodied in a physical body that is in continuous interaction with the environment. Embedding the
 Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) in the closed-loop of the sensorimotor space of a Myorobotics tendondriven
 robotic arm we demonstrate learning, prediction and control of biomimetic body motions. Experiments
 finally lead to conditioned reactions in natural interaction with a human partner...

We integrate heterogeneous terminologies into our category-theoretic model of faceted browsing and show that existing terminologies and vocabularies can be reused as facets in a cohesive, interactive system. Commonly found in online search engines and digital libraries, faceted browsing systems depend upon one or more taxonomies which outline the structure and content of the facets available for user interaction. Controlled vocabularies or terminologies are often curated externally and are available as a reusable resource across systems...

Background: Aspects of the work environment influence employee well-being. However, it is unclear how employee lifestyle behaviours, health characteristics and well-being may differ within a broader occupational sector. Aims: To investigate the health characteristics, lifestyle behaviours and well-being of three Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) occupational groups that differ in shift work and occupational demands: operational firefighters (FF), emergency control (EC) and administrative support (AS) workers...

Motivation: Non-invasive prenatal testing or NIPT is currently among the top researched topic in obstetric care. While the performance of the current state-of-the-art NIPT solutions achieve high sensitivity and specificity, they still struggle with a considerable number of samples that cannot be concluded with certainty. Such uninformative results are often subject to repeated blood sampling and re-analysis, usually after two weeks, and this period may cause a stress to the future mothers as well as increase the overall cost of the test...

Motivation: Protein function is regulated by post-translational modifications (PTMs) that may act individually or interact with others in a phenomenon termed PTM cross-talk. Multiple databases have been dedicated to PTMs, including recent initiatives oriented towards the in silico prediction of PTM interactions. The study of PTM cross-talk ultimately requires experimental evidence about whether certain PTMs co-exist in a single protein molecule. However, available resources do not assist researchers in the experimental detection of co-modified peptides...

AIM: To study the association between player characteristics, technical components of the game and the risk of match injuries during the 2017 Men's Handball World Championship. METHODS: Team physicians of the participating teams (n=24) were requested to provide injury report forms throughout the Men's Handball World Championship (France, January 2017). The individual time played, age, number of international matches played and all technical and penalty variables for each player were extracted from the official International Handball Federation (IHF) online database and used as risk factors in a general logistic linear model analysis...

BACKGROUND: Some consumers wish to use vapour devices discreetly so that family members, teachers and coworkers do not recognise their use of nicotine or t etrahydrocannabinol (THC) laden vapour. METHODS: Stealthy vapour devices, as well as low-odour and low-vapour e-juices, were identified via a comprehensive online search between March and June 2018. RESULTS: As evidence of their popularity, a search for 'stealth vaping' on YouTube found 18 200 videos...

Landfills in Germany are currently approaching stabilization phase; as a result removal of inert organics and potentially toxic elements in the leachate is becoming a primary concern. Dissolved air floatation (DAF) at the secondary stage reduces only 27% of the residual chemical oxygen demand (COD) in the investigated treatment systems; downstream granular activated carbon (GAC) units are required to further reduce COD concentration by 40-56% to meet indirect discharge or direct discharge limits respectively...

OBJECTIVES: There is accumulating evidence that yoga and mindfulness meditation can alleviate symptoms of anxiety, although the mechanisms by which this occurs remain unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between yoga practice and self-reported anxiety as well as the potential mediating roles of mindfulness and emotional avoidance. METHODS: Using a cross-sectional design, 367 participants were recruited online and completed measures of anxiety, avoidance, and mindfulness...

BACKGROUND: An academic genealogy describes mentoring relationships in an academic discipline. In this study, we outline an academic genealogy of neurosurgery department chairs in the United States beginning with the founding members of the field. METHODS: The biographical information provided by the Society for Neurological Surgery provided the basis for our genealogy. We also performed a literature review with Pubmed using the term "neurosurgery department history"...

Research into associations between lifestyle behaviours and health has largely focused on morbidity, mortality and disease prevention. Greater focus is needed to examine relationships between lifestyle behaviours and positive health outcomes such as well-being. This study aims to examine the associations between multiple lifestyle behaviours and excellent well-being. Participants (n = 6788) were adults in the member database of the 10,000 Steps Australia project who were asked to participate in an online survey in November-December 2016...

BACKGROUND: In Asian rhinoplasty, a septal extension graft can be used for both tip projection and derotation of the alar cartilage. However, patients often do not have enough harvestable septal cartilage to create the septal extension graft. We therefore devised a method with which to fix the derotated alar cartilage with a small amount of septal cartilage. METHODS: From January 2012 to December 2016, 23 patients underwent short nose correction with a septal half extension graft made of septal cartilage and were postoperatively monitored for at least 6 months...
