Having worked in a variety of specialty areas over the years as staff nurses, clinical
nurse specialists, educators, therapists, and managers, we realize that nurses
aspire to become highly proficient in their area of practice. But psychosocial skills

Cardiothoracic surgical nursing has undergone immense change over the past
decade, owing in part to professional, economic and societal changes. The profile
of patients undergoing cardiothoracic surgery has also changed as cardiothoracic
surgery is performed upon the more elderly, the high-risk or those with co-
morbidity. Although previously considered at too high a risk for surgery,
improved surgical techniques, pharmacology and pre- and post-operative care
have resulted in a successful outcome for many patients and a return to an

The effect of movies on the appearance of children as witnesses in German
courts is particularly noticeable. Children, juveniles, and adults were asked by
Petra Wolf what they knew about courts.
The source of information they
most often mentioned was movies, especially American crime movies and
courtroom dramas. A group of psychologists from Kiel who published a book
for the preparation of children as witnesses found out that, even after seeing
pictures of a German courtroom, children still believed that the judge would

Traditionally non-wood pulps were produced by alkaline processes. Alkaline
processes such as soda (Mohta et al. 1998, Tutus & Eroglu 2003, Feng & Alen
2001, Finell & Nilsson 2004, Okayama & Li 1996) and the NACO process
(Recchia et al. 1996, Fiala & Nardi 1985, Paul 2001) have been used to produce
non-wood pulp in mills. The main problem with alkaline processes for non-
wood fibres is that silicates of non-wood plants dissolve during cooking into the
