Contextual influences on talent development (e.g., birthplace effects) have become a topic of interest for sport scientists. Birthplace effects occur when being born in a certain city size leads to participation or performance advantages, typically for those born in smaller or mid-sized cities. The purpose of this study was to investigate birthplace effects in Portuguese volleyball players by analysing city size, as well as population density - an important but infrequently used variable. Participants included 4062 volleyball players (Mage = 33), 53...

While historically adolescents were removed from their parents to prepare to become warriors, this process repeats itself in modern times but with the outcome being athletic performance. This review considers the process of developing athletes and managing load against the backdrop of differing approaches of conserving and maximizing the talent available. It acknowledges the typical training 'dose' that adolescent athletes receive across a number of sports and the typical 'response' when it is excessive or not managed appropriately...

PURPOSE: The 4DCBCT image reconstruction suffers from the insufficient number of projections and the error from projection binning. We have recently developed a 5D respiratory motion model based iterative reconstruction method (5D method) for 4DCBCT in a proof-of-concept 2D setting. The 5D method reconstructs a reference image and two time-independent vector fields without projection binning, based on which any temporal phase at each projection can be generated. As a result, the 5D method needs fewer number of projections and is free from binning error...

M Guo, H Gao
PURPOSE: Despite its promising utility, iterative CT image reconstruction is often time-consuming, especially for helical CT, for which the X-ray projections and backprojections are computationally dominant. To overcome the insufficient memory storage for projection and backprojection matrices, they are usually computed on-the-fly with parallel implementation via GPU. In this work, we develop an efficient method to compute projections and backprojections without repeated on-the-fly computations for helical CT...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this educational program is to motivate talented, intelligent individuals to become stakeholders in the global effort to improve access to radiotherapy. METHODS: The need to improve global access to radiotherapy has been clearly established and several organizations are making substantial progress in securing funding and developing plans to achieve this worthwhile goal. The incorporation of elective international rotations in residency programs may provide one possible mechanism to promote and support this future investment...

H Gao
PURPOSE: This work is to develop a general framework, namely filtered iterative reconstruction (FIR) method, to incorporate analytical reconstruction (AR) method into iterative reconstruction (IR) method, for enhanced CT image quality. METHODS: FIR is formulated as a combination of filtered data fidelity and sparsity regularization, and then solved by proximal forward-backward splitting (PFBS) algorithm. As a result, the image reconstruction decouples data fidelity and image regularization with a two-step iterative scheme, during which an AR-projection step updates the filtered data fidelity term, while a denoising solver updates the sparsity regularization term...

PURPOSE: Linear Boltzmann transport equation (LBTE) is as accurate as the Monte Carlo method for dose calculation. This work is to develop an asymptotic-preserving (AP) scheme to accelerate the LBTE, i.e., to achieve the same accuracy with significantly reduced number of spatial grids. METHODS: In this proof-of-concept study, two-dimensional LBTE is solved by the discrete ordinate method. The Level-Symmetric (LQn) quadrature set is employed for angular discretization of LBTE...

BACKGROUND: Nursing competency is a standard component of the nursing curriculum in baccalaureate nursing education in Taiwan. However, limited studies have been found on the development of a measurement for assessing Taiwanese baccalaureate-level nursing competency. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to develop and validate a Nursing Students Competence Instrument (NSCI) for Taiwanese baccalaureate-level nursing students. DESIGN: The items of this newly developed scale were derived from a previous published qualitative study by the authors...

Most studies on the identification and development of soccer talent have been one-dimensional in nature. Although some multi-dimensional analyses have been conducted, few research studies have assessed in any depth the socio-spatial factors influencing talent development. The aim of this particular study was to analyse variations in the international representation of clubs (n = 821) and countries (n = 59) in the development of players who took part in the 2014 FIFA Soccer World Cup. Clubs and countries were ranked and divided into quartiles according to the number of players developed between the ages of 15 and 21 (clubs and countries that developed players for at least three years between these ages) and the number of official league matches played by these players up to the age of 23...

The purpose of this study was to identify factors that constituted the cultural capital among soccer players. We assumed that in the increasingly globalized world of professional soccer, a player's success would often depend on migrating and adjusting to life in other countries. Willingness to migrate and successful adjustment are tied to player's previous attitudes and/or behaviours (habitus), significant support from others, including family members, and previous experiences and success in sports and education...
