INTRODUCTION: Ecological approaches to health behavior change require effective engagement from and coordination of activities among diverse community stakeholders. We identified facilitators of and barriers to implementation experienced by project leaders and key stakeholders involved in the Imperial County, California, Childhood Obesity Research Demonstration project, a multilevel, multisector intervention to prevent and control childhood obesity. METHODS: A total of 74 semistructured interviews were conducted with project leaders (n = 6) and key stakeholders (n = 68) representing multiple levels of influence in the health care, early care and education, and school sectors...

OBJECTIVES: To assess whether the perception of enhanced access by parents in their child's primary care and main specialty practices is associated with preference for contacting either practice when problems arise with a child's chronic condition. STUDY DESIGN: In this cross-sectional survey study of parents whose children use both primary and specialty practices, we assessed perceptions of 3 components of enhanced access: (1) appointment availability when needed, (2) electronic communication with practices, and (3) other staff that help manage a child's health care needs...

Modular optimization of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) was realized by incorporation of coordinatively unsaturated single atoms in a MOF matrix. The newly developed MOF can selectively capture and photoreduce CO2 with high efficiency under visible-light irradiation. Mechanistic investigation reveals that the presence of single Co atoms in the MOF can greatly boost the electron-hole separation efficiency in porphyrin units. Directional migration of photogenerated excitons from porphyrin to catalytic Co centers was witnessed, thereby achieving supply of long-lived electrons for the reduction of CO2 molecules adsorbed on Co centers...

The synthetic access to cationic bismuth compounds based on simple, monodentate, synthetically useful amido ligands, [Bi(NR2)2(L)n]+, has been investigated (R = Me, iPr, Ph; L = neutral ligand). With [BPh4]- as a counteranion, the formation of contact ion pairs and subsequent phenyl transfer from B to Bi is observed. An intermediate of this reaction, [Bi(NMe2)2(HNMe2)(BPh4)] (1), could be isolated and fully characterized. The use of fluorinated tetrarylborates as counteranions leads to more stable cationic bismuth amides...

Mononuclear transition metal complexes of Cu(II), Co(II) and Ni(II) with a newly synthesised macrocyclic ligand derived from 1, 4-dicarbonyl-phenyl-dihydrazide and 1,2-diphenylethane-1,2-dione (2:2) have been synthesised. The synthesised compounds were characterised by various physical and spectroscopic techniques including elemental analysis, FTIR, Uv-Vis., (1)H NMR, mass spectra, magnetic moment and XRD. The investigation of these macrocyclic complexes established that the stability of metal-ligand coordination through N atoms as tetradentate chelates...

Strong visible light absorption and high charge mobility are desirable properties for an efficient photocatalyst, yet they are hard to be realized simultaneously in a single semiconductor compound. In this work, we demonstrate that these properties coexist in homologous compounds ZnnIn2O3+n (n = 4, 5 and 7) with a peculiar layered structure that combines optical active segment and electrical conductive segment together. Their enhanced visible light absorption originates from tetrahedrally or trigonal-bipyramidally coordinated In atoms in Zn(In)O4(5) layers which enable p-d hybridization between In 4d and O 2p orbitals so that valence band minimum (VBM) is uplifted with a reduced band gap...

Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine coverage remains low in the USA. The Society for Behavioral Medicine (SBM) supports the goals outlined by Healthy People 2020, the President's Cancer Panel, and the National Vaccine Advisory Committee to increase vaccination coverage among both males and females. SBM makes the following recommendations in support of efforts to reduce structural and other barriers to HPV vaccination services in order to increase rates of series completion. We encourage legislators and other policymakers to improve administration authority, insurance coverage, and reimbursement rates to healthcare providers who make the HPV vaccine available to adolescents; provide instrumental support to fund the development of school curricula on HPV vaccination; and increase public awareness that HPV vaccination can prevent cancer...

With the aim of tuning the structures by using oxime ligands with different non-coordinating groups, three aromatic oxime ligands were designed by fusing oxime groups ([double bond, length as m-dash]N-OH) onto different non-coordinating groups. Their reactions with the corresponding Mn(ii) salts gave five manganese clusters [Mn(μ3-O)(L(1))3(DMF)(H2O)3Cl]·2DMF·CH3OH (1), [Mn(μ3-O)(L(2))3(OAc)(CH3OH)2] (2), [Mn(μ3-O)2(L(2))6(H2O)(py)7](ClO4)2·py·0.5CH3OH·2H2O (3), [MnO4(L(2))8(DMF)4]·DMF·6CH3CN (4), and [MnMnO4(L(3))12]·3DMF·6H2O (5), in which H2L(1), H2L(2) and HL(3) represent indane-1,2,3-trione-1,2-dioxime, acenaphthenequinone dioxime, and 9,10-phenanthrenedione-9-oxime, respectively...

The syntheses of two new ligands based on a calix[4]arene scaffold in the cone conformation functionalized on the phenolic positions 1 and 3 by diethylthiophosphonates (L1) or tetra(tri)thioethyleneglycol (L2) crowns are described. Together with ligand L3, the parent calix[4]arene substituted by a penta(tetra)thioethyleneglycol crown, the spectroscopic properties of the ligands were determined by means of UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy and steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy, showing that the ligands display modest but non-negligible intrinsic fluorescence properties (ϕfluo = 0...

Motion synchrony correlates with effective and well-rated human interaction. However, people do not remain locked in synchrony; Instead, they repeatedly enter and exit synchrony. In many important interactions, such as therapy, marriage and parent-infant communication, it is the ability to exit and then re-enter synchrony that is thought to build strong relationship. The phenomenon of entry into zero-phase synchrony is well-studied experimentally and in terms of mathematical modeling. In contrast, exit-from-synchrony is under-studied...

The title phosphinidene complex reacted at room temperature with CS2 and SCNPh to give the phosphanyl derivatives [Mo2Cp{μ-κ(2)P,S:κ(1)S',η(5)-P(CS2)C5H4}(CO)2(η(6)-HMes*)] and [Mo2Cp{μ-κ(2)P,S:κ(1)P,η(5)-P(C(NPh)S)C5H4}(CO)2(η(6)-HMes*)], respectively (Mes* = 2,4,6-C6H2(t)Bu3), which result from a [2 + 2] cycloaddition of a C═S bond in the organic reagent to the Mo═P bond of the phosphinidene complex, with further insertion of S into the remaining Mo-P bond, in the CS2 reaction. The title complex also reacted with diazoalkanes N2CRR' at room temperature to give the corresponding phosphaalkene derivatives [Mo2Cp{μ-η(2):κ(1)P,η(5)-P(CRR')C5H4}(CO)2(η(6)-HMes*)] (CRR' = CH2, CPh2, CH(SiMe3))...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) demonstrate limited participation in daily occupations which negatively impacts their physical and psycho-social wellbeing. The CO-OP approach is strongly supported within the literature as an effective treatment for DCD when delivered as a one-on-one therapy. Group interventions have proven to be effective in increasing self-esteem, decreasing feelings of isolation and are a cost effective way of delivering therapy...

The rotational spectra of octafluorocyclopentene, C5F8, has been measured for the first time using pulsed jet Fourier transform microwave spectroscopy in a frequency range of 6 GHz to 16 GHz. As in the molecule cyclopentene, the carbon ring is non-planar and inversion through the plane results in an inversion pair of ground state vibrational energy levels with an inversion splitting of 18.4 MHz. This large amplitude motion leads to the vibration-rotation coupling of energy levels. The symmetric double minimum ring puckering potential function was calculated, resulting in a barrier of 222 cm-1...

INTRODUCTION: Physical injury is a leading cause of death and disability among children worldwide and the largest cause of paediatric hospital admission. Parents of critically injured children are at increased risk of developing mental and emotional distress in the aftermath of child injury. In the Australian context, there is limited evidence on parent experiences of child injury and hospitalisation, and minimal understanding of their support needs. The aim of this investigation was to explore parents' experiences of having a critically injured child during the acute hospitalisation phase of injury, and to determine their support needs during this time...

Aerobic respiration is a fundamental physiological trait dependent on coordinated interactions between gene products of the mitochondrial and nuclear genomes. Mitonuclear mismatch in interspecific hybrids may contribute to reproductive isolation by inducing reduced viability (or even complete inviability) due to increased metabolic costs. However, few studies have tested for effects of mitonuclear mismatch on respiration at the whole organism level. We explored how hybridization affects metabolic rates in closely related species of grasshopper mice (genus Onychomys) to better understand the role of metabolic costs in reproductive isolation...

Testing the theories that form the basis of prevention programs can enhance our understanding of behavioral change and inform the development, coordination, and adaptation of prevention programs. However, theories of change showing the linkages from intervention program components to risk or protective factors to desired outcomes across time are rarely specified or tested. In this 2-year longitudinal study, we test the theory that increases in two protective factors (i.e., children's prosocial leadership and their teachers' expectations of social responsibility) targeted by the WITS Programs (Walk Away, Ignore, Talk it Out, and Seek Help) would be associated with declines in peer victimization, aggression, and emotional problems...

Intermetallic carbides provide excellent model systems for exploring how frustration can shape the structures and properties of inorganic materials. Combinations of several metals with carbon can be designed in which the formation of tetrahedrally close-packed (TCP) intermetallics conflicts with the C atoms' requirement of trigonal prismatic or octahedral coordination environments, as offered by the simple close-packings (SCP) of equally sized spheres. In this Article, we explore the driving forces that lead to the coexistence of these incompatible arrangements in the Yb11Ni60C6-type compound Y11Ni60C6 (cI154), as well as potential consequences of this intergrowth for the phase's physical properties...

Congenital agenesis and acquired amputations of upper limb in children are a great traumatic experience in affected families. Patients, families and caregivers are then exposed to many functional and social difficulties. These states require accurate analysis of functional impairment, child's coping skills and therapeutic plan to implement for optimal social integration. These children and their families must be supported since early childhood by multidisciplinary teams. This can require psychological support, the use of an aesthetic and/or functional prosthesis, and occupational therapy...
