Many returning OIF/OEF/OND Veterans are seeking higher education in an effort to develop a meaningful career and financial stability. Evidence suggests that student service members/veterans (SSM/Vs) are experiencing less academic success than other students. The purpose of this review is to identify the unique challenges of SSM/Vs and evaluate current campus efforts to facilitate their retention and academic performance. With a focus on SSM/Vs attending colleges and universities, we obtained 57 peer-reviewed and 73 gray literature records published between 2001 and 2015...

We have developed an unnatural base pair (UBP) and a semisynthetic organism (SSO) that imports the constituent unnatural nucleoside triphosphates and uses them to replicate DNA containing the UBP. However, propagation of the UBP is at least in part limited by the stability of the unnatural triphosphates, which are degraded by cellular and secreted phosphatases. To circumvent this problem, we now report the synthesis and evaluation of unnatural triphosphates with their β,γ-bridging oxygen replaced with a difluoromethylene moiety, yielding dNaMTP(CF2) and dTPT3TP(CF2)...

Mate value discrepancy (MVD) between heterosexual partners is an important factor influencing relationship satisfaction which, in turn, has an effect on the quality and the stability of the relationship. Therefore, partners' involvement in mate retention behaviours, such as controlling behaviours, can be related to MVD and our study aims to determine whether such an association exists. In order to do so, we analysed female perception of MVD and their opinion regarding the intensity of controlling behaviours performed by themselves as well as their romantic partners...

Reactions of Zn(I)2 L2 (where L=[HC(PPh2 NPh)](-) ) with solutions of the Zintl phase K4 Ge9 in liquid ammonia lead to retention of the Zn-Zn bond and formation of the anion [(η(4) -Ge9 )Zn-Zn(η(4) -Ge9 )](6-) , representing the first complex with a Zn-Zn unit carrying two cluster entities. The trimeric anion [(η(4) -Ge9 )Zn{μ2 (η(1) :η(1) Ge9 )}Zn(η(4) -Ge9 )](8-) forms as a side product, indicating that oxidation reactions also take place. The reaction of Zn2 Cp*2 (Cp*=1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) with K4 Ge9 in ethylenediamine yielded the linear polymeric unit 1∞ {[Zn[μ2 (η(4) :η(1) Ge9 )]}(2-) with the first head-to-tail arrangement of ten-atom closo-clusters...

CONTEXT: People living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) (PLWH) who are most at risk for falling out of HIV primary care and detectable viral loads include homeless and unstably housed individuals and those codiagnosed with behavioral health disorders. The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model that promotes provision of comprehensive, patient-centered, accessible, coordinated, and quality care for patients. This initiative provided patient navigation to HIV-positive homeless and unstably housed individuals codiagnosed with a mental health or substance use disorder as a means to create an adapted PCMH to meet the specific needs of this population...

An area-selective atomic layer deposition (AS-ALD) method is described to construct oxide nanotraps to anchor Pt nanoparticles (NPs) on Al2 O3 supports. The as-synthesized catalysts have exhibited outstanding room-temperature CO oxidation activity, with a significantly lowered apparent activation energy (ca. 22.17 kJ mol(-1) ) that is half that of pure Pt catalyst with the same loading. Furthermore, the structure shows excellent sintering resistance with the high catalytic activity retention up to 600 °C calcination...

This case report describes the fabrication of a distal extension removable partial denture (RPD) of a 65-year-old man with implant support. Loss of fibroelasticity of the peripheral tissues and reduced mandibular vestibular sulcular depth due to a previous surgical resection and radiotherapy at the right side were the main clinical factors that created difficulty for denture retention and stability. The fabrication of a mandibular RPD supported by anterior teeth and two bilaterally placed implants in the molar area to convert from Kennedy Class 1 design to Kennedy Class 3 implant-bounded RPD is reported...

INTRODUCTION: Primary stability is essential to the success of orthodontic mini-implants (OMIs) and heavily depends on the mechanical retention between OMIs and their supporting bone. Alveolar cortical bone commonly serves as the supporting bone for OMIs during treatment. The purposes of this study were to characterize alveolar cortical bone thickness and density in the maxilla and to explore patient factors that may significantly affect these bone properties. METHODS: Sixty medical computed tomography scans of the maxilla were analyzed from a selected sample of patients seen at the Radiology Department of Boston Children's Hospital...

: Wound infections, particularly of chronic wounds, pose a substantial challenge for designing antimicrobial dressings that are both effective against pathogens, and do not interfere with wound healing. Due to their broad-spectrum antimicrobial and immunomodulatory activities, naturally-occurring antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are promising alternative treatments. However, their cytotoxicity at high concentrations and poor stability hinders their clinical use. To mitigate these undesirable properties, we investigated the effects of tethering human AMP cathelicidin LL37 to collagen, one of the main extracellular matrix proteins in wound sites, secreted by fibroblasts, and in commercially-available wound dressings...

Flexible energy-storage devices based on supercapacitors rely largely on the scrupulous design of flexible electrodes with both good electrochemical performance and high mechanical properties. Here, nitrogen-doped carbon nanofiber networks/reduced graphene oxide/bacterial cellulose (N-CNFs/RGO/BC) freestanding paper is first designed as a high-performance, mechanically tough, and bendable electrode for a supercapacitor. The BC is exploited as both a supporting substrate for a large mass loading of 8 mg cm(-2) and a biomass precursor for N-CNFs by pyrolysis...

INTRODUCTION: Retaining corrected skeletal anterior open bites is challenging. If it is possible to identify the aetiological factors causing an open bite, an appropriate choice of treatment and retention may reduce relapse. Extruding anterior teeth to close anterior open bites is known to be unstable, so treatment is typically aimed at controlling the vertical position of maxillary molars, in addition to removing causative factors, such as breaking habits and improving tongue posture...

Textile-based supercapacitors have recently attracted much attention owing to their great potential as energy storage components in wearable electronics. However, fabrication of a high-performance, fully printed, and ultraflexible supercapacitor based on a single textile still remains a great challenge. Herein, a facile, low-cost, and textile-compatible method involving screen printing and transfer printing is developed to construct all-solid-state supercapacitors on a single silk fabric. The system exhibits a high specific capacitance of 19...

The realization of metal NPs with bimetallic character and distinct composition for specific catalytic applications is an intensively studied field. Due to the synergy between metals, most of the bimetallic particles exhibit unique properties, only hardly provided by the individual monometallic counterparts. However, as small sized NPs possess high surface energy, agglomeration during catalytic reactions is favored. Sufficient stabilization can be achieved by confinement of NPs in porous support materials. In this sense, especially MOFs gained a lot of attention during the last years, however, encapsulation of bimetallic species remains challenging...

Patient. A 68-year-old man was operated on for squamous cell carcinoma (T3N3M0) of the maxilla creating the hemimaxillary surgical defect on right side. The remaining arch was completely edentulous. There was remarkable limitation in the oral opening with reduced perimeter of the oral cavity due to radiation and surgical scar contracture. This article describes prosthetic rehabilitation by modifying the design of the obturator and achieving the retention with dental implant. Discussion. Severe limitation in the oral opening may occur in clinical situations following the postsurgical management of oral and maxillofacial defects...

Low-cost adsorbents have been continuously developed for heavy metal removal, but little information is available concerning the follow-up treatment of the toxic metal-laden adsorbents. In this study, an optional strategy was provided for the further treatment of heavy metal-impregnated low-cost adsorbents through employing them for phosphate retention. The enhancement of phosphate adsorption by the sorbed lead was first validated using several types of raw or modified waste biomass. Tea waste-supported hydrated manganese dioxide (HMO-TW) with the highest Pb sorption capability was then chosen to systematically evaluate phosphate retention...

Patients who underwent resection of maxilla due to benign or malignant tumor, or accident will have defect in palatal area. They get retention, support and stability from remaining tissues which are hardly optimal. The advantage of swing-lock attachment design is having multiple contacts on labial and lingual side of the abutment teeth by retentive strut and palatal bracing component. Because the force is distributed equally to abutment teeth, abutment teeth of poor prognosis can be benefited from it. It is also more advantageous to cover soft tissue defects which are hard to reach with conventional prosthesis...

REVIEW
Giuseppina D'Alessandro, Fabrizio d'Adda di Fagagna
Transcription has classically been considered a potential threat to genome integrity. Collision between transcription and DNA replication machinery, and retention of DNA:RNA hybrids, may result in genome instability. On the other hand, it has been proposed that active genes repair faster and preferentially via homologous recombination. Moreover, while canonical transcription is inhibited in the proximity of DNA double-strand breaks, a growing body of evidence supports active non-canonical transcription at DNA damage sites...

A novel self-supported electrode with long cycling life and high mass loading is developed based on carbon-coated Si nanowires in situ grown on highly conductive and flexible carbon fabric substrates through a nickel catalyzed one-pot atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition. The high-quality carbon coated Si nanowires result in high reversible specific capacity (~3500 mA h g(-1) at 100 mA g(-1)), while 3D electrode's unique architecture leads to a significantly improved robustness and a high degree of electrode stability...

Diverse LiPF6 hydrolysis products evolve during lithium-ion battery cell operation at elevated operation temperatures and high operation voltages. However, their impact on the formation and stability of the electrode/electrolyte interfaces is not yet investigated and understood. In this work, literature-known hydrolysis products of LiPF6 dimethyl fluorophosphate (DMFP) and diethyl fluorophosphate (DEFP) were synthesized and characterized. The use of DMFP and DEFP as electrolyte additive in 1 M LiPF6 in EC:EMC (1:1, by wt) was investigated in LiNi1/3Mn1/3Co1/3O2/Li half cells...
