Cannabis-related ED visits are on the rise due to wider legalization and availability of marijuana, and habitual daily use is increasingly common. Cannabis abuse has long been associated with various short-term and long-term adverse reactions. One such reaction is cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome: cyclical vomiting, nausea, and abdominal pain that only resolves with a warm bath or shower. Healthcare providers must understand the signs and symptoms of cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome so the problem can be recognized early and patients avoid unnecessary testing...

What do you say to a child who rarely speaks? How do you work with such a youngster? What are the sine qua nons or guiding principles upon which analysts can draw? And, how do we know if we are being helpful? Sam was 9-years when I began treating him. He was extremely withdrawn and rarely spoke more than a few words. Instead, he mainly played chess. I did not know at first whether Sam's taciturn demeanor was due to shyness, limited verbal abilities, or the stultifying effects of trauma. Fortuitously, during one of many seemingly "innocent" games of chess, Sam happened to make a bold move, to which I admiringly remarked, "What a move, you're killing me...

Whether adolescents should be allowed to make their own medical decisions has been a topic of discussion in bioethics for at least two decades now. Are adolescents sufficiently capacitated to make their own medical decisions? Is the mature-minor doctrine, an uncommon legal exception to the rule of parental decision-making authority, something we should expand or eliminate? Bioethicists have dealt with the curious liminality of adolescents-their being neither children nor adults-in a variety of ways. However, recently there has been a trend to rely heavily, and often exclusively, on emerging neuroscientific and psychological data to answer these questions...

A 60-year-old male Dialysis patient presented with altered mental status and Hypertensive Urgency. He had a significant lesion noted on his glans penis. He was treated for infection and hypertension with expectant management, without significant improvement in his mental acuity. Laboratory and radiologic workup were unrevealing for the etiology. Upon detailed review it was noted he had recently been given Acyclovir for a presumed Herpes Simplex Virus infection. He had been prescribed what is considered correct dosing for an ESRD patient...

Aqueous pyridine plays an important role in a variety of catalytic processes aimed at harnessing solar energy. In this work, the pyridine-water interaction is studied by microwave spectroscopy and DFT calculations. Water forms a hydrogen bond to the nitrogen with the oxygen tilted slightly toward either of the ortho hydrogens of the pyridine, and a tunneling motion involving in-plane rocking of the water interconverts the resulting equivalent structures. A pair of tunneling states with severely perturbed rotational structure is identified and their energy separation, ΔE, is inferred from the perturbations and confirmed by direct measurement...

Nematodes are a very diverse phylum that has adapted to nearly every ecosystem. They have developed specialized lifestyles, dividing the phylum into free-living, animal, and plant parasitic species. Their sheer abundance in numbers and presence in nearly every ecosystem make them the most prevalent animals on earth. In this research nematode-specific profiles were designed to retrieve predicted lectin-like domains from the sequence data of nematode genomes and transcriptomes. Lectins are carbohydrate-binding proteins that play numerous roles inside and outside the cell depending on their sugar specificity and associated protein domains...

Trans-generational transmission of genome-regulatory epigenetic information can determine phenotypes in the progeny of sexual reproduction. Sequence specificity of trans-generational regulation derives from small RNAs assembled into Piwi-protein complexes. Known targets of trans-generational regulation are primarily transposons and transposon-derived sequences. Here, we extend the scope of Piwi-mediated trans-generational regulation to include unique non-coding RNA loci. Ciliates such as Tetrahymena have a phenotypically silent germline micronucleus and an expressed somatic macronucleus, which is differentiated anew from a germline genome copy in sexual reproduction...

Main-group halide perovskites have generated much excitement of late because of their remarkable optoelectronic properties, ease of preparation, and abundant constituent elements, but these curious and promising materials differ in important respects from traditional semiconductors. The distinguishing chemical, structural, and electronic features of these materials present the key to understanding the origins of the optoelectronic performance of the well-studied hybrid organic-inorganic lead halides and provide a starting point for the design and preparation of new functional materials...

While osajin and pomiferin are known for their anticancer, antibacterial and antidiabetic properties, scandenone and auriculasin have been proposed as anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive agents. Curiously, these two couples of molecules are, from a chemical point of view, structural isomers which can all be extracted from Maclura pomifera. Although previous works described, separately, the isolation in reasonable amounts of the sole osajin/pomiferin couple or of scandenone/auriculasin, we report the extraction and characterization using direct spectral and chromatographical comparison of the four compounds...

We thank the Authors for their interest in our study [1] and the questions raised. Our response begins from their conclusion: "…we fear that uWells' may create more noise than signal in the already murky PE milieu". We find curious that two strongly evidence based applications of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) added to the clinical evaluation might create confusion rather than resolving challenging questions.

Posterior capsular opacification (PCO) is common after cataract surgery. Recurrence is very rare after a successful Yttrium aluminium-garnet (YAG) capsulotomy in adults. We report a case of visual axis re-opacification after a successful YAG capsulotomy for PCO in an adult. A 60-year male underwent phacoemulsification with +20.0 D acrylic hydrophobic intraocular lens implantation and silicon oil removal (SOR) five months after a successful retinal detachment repair. He underwent a capsulotomy after two months of surgery; however, the visual axis re-opacified after three more months...

Asbestos is a mineral-mined form the rocks, consisting in amosite (brown asbestos), crocidolite (blue asbestos) and÷or chrysotile (white asbestos) used in many industries. Researches about the exposure to asbestos dust and asbestosis related diseases started almost a century ago. The first case report of fatal asbestosis disease was published in 1906, in England, by Dr. Hubert Montague Murray. A decade after, asbestos "curious bodies" were firstly described in the lung tissue by Cooke (1926) and McDonald (1927)...

Equilibrium and non-equilibrium formulations of the state-specific polarizable-continuum model (SS-PCM) are evaluated in combination with correlated ground- and excited-state densities provided by the algebraic-diagrammatic construction method (ADC) for the polarization propagator via the computationally efficient intermediate-state representation (ISR) formalism. Since the influence of the SS-PCM onto quantum-chemical method is naturally limited to the presence of the apparent surface charges in the one-electron Hamiltonian and hence fully contained in the polarized MOs, the herein presented solvent model can be combined with all implemented orders and variants of ADC...

Introns are found in 5' untranslated regions (5'UTRs) for 35% of all human transcripts. These 5'UTR introns are not randomly distributed: genes that encode secreted, membrane-bound and mitochondrial proteins are less likely to have them. Curiously, transcripts lacking 5'UTR introns tend to harbor specific RNA sequence elements in their early coding regions. To model and understand the connection between coding-region sequence and 5'UTR intron status, we developed a classifier that can predict 5'UTR intron status with >80% accuracy using only sequence features in the early coding region...

The guanidyl moiety is a component of fundamental metabolites, including the amino acid arginine, the energy carrier creatine, and the nucleobase guanine. Curiously, reports regarding the importance of free guanidine in biology are sparse, and no biological receptors that specifically recognize this compound have been previously identified. We report that many members of the ykkC motif RNA, the longest unresolved riboswitch candidate, naturally sense and respond to guanidine. This RNA is found throughout much of the bacterial domain of life, where it commonly controls the expression of proteins annotated as urea carboxylases and multidrug efflux pumps...

O. Hobart Mowrer had one of the most productive and curious careers of any psychologist in the 20th century, despite struggling with severe mental illness and anxiety about his sexuality. Early in his career, he was one of the country's leading experimental psychologists. During the mid-1940s, he became interested in religion and argued that anxiety was caused by repressed guilt that came from real wrongdoing. By the late 1950s, he had abandoned mainstream psychology, arguing that religion had been corrupted by its embrace of psychology and psychiatry...

Post-procedural upper extremity dysfunction (UED) remains one of the few potential questions about the overall benefits of the transradial approach (TRA) to endovascular procedures compared to femoral (TFA). Data on UED is limited, but the most comprehensive study curiously shows similar incidence of post-procedural UED with TFA as TRA. The effects of trAnsRadial perCUtaneouS coronary intervention on upper extremity function (ARCUS) study will investigate whether patient characteristics influence radial access outcomes such as UED...
