Acute, as well as chronic renal failure is great medical problems and their treatment is a burden for the budget of each government. Acute kidney injury (AKI), previously termed acute renal failure, is a frequent clinical condition in critically ill patients especially, in intensive care units (ICU). Its incidence varies from 1-7 % of all hospitalized patients to 30-50 % of patients in ICU....

  • Further, Fich and Shivdasani (2006) find that firms with a majority of their outside directors serving on three or more boards have lower profitability. Thus busy non- executive directors may be over-committed and therefore unable to fulfil the role of effective monitors. In addition, Vafeas (2003) reports that longer outside director tenure adversely affects firm performance. Hwang and Kim (2009) find that the existence of substantial social ties between outside directors and top management diminishes the effectiveness of the monitoring role of non-executive directors. ...

  • Eight different isomeric forms of vitamin E (4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols) have been found in nature. Tocotrienols (α, β, γ and δ) are identical in structure to tocopherols except for the degree of saturation in their side chain. However, α-tocopherol is considered to be the most active form of vitamin E in humans. It has been found that the concentrations of vitamin E isomers in human feces are higher than in plasma – possibly due to its limited absorption from the diet, suggesting that it could play a protective role against RONS produced in the GI tract (Halliwell...

  • Although we are primarily interested in the housing consumption of the elderly, we did not limit our analysis to the householders aged 62 and older. For comparison purposes, we looked at all householders. We did this by segregating the householder population into seven age cohorts. The number of age cohorts is large enough to let us capture changes in housing consumption over individuals’ lifecycle, without being overly burdensome on the analysis. The cohort widths have been defined such that they can mirror reasonable life bands.

  • An estimated 1.5 million deaths occur annually as a result of household air pollution from SFU mainly for cooking as well as winter season heating. The total disease burden, including morbidity, is estimated at 36 million DALYs (WHO 2007). 3 These deaths and DALYs arise mainly from acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) in young children and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in adults, and to a lesser extent lung cancer. There is also moderate evidence of increased risk of asthma, cataracts and tuberculosis (Desai et al, 2004; Smith et al, 2004).

  • The presence or lack of these five factors was the determinant of the role of religion in the given conflict. Due to the nature of this methodology these are debateable findings. For instance one leader may declare simply ‘May God bless us and watch over us’ whereas another may declare that ‘God calls us, his chosen people, to annihilate our enemies’. Both are employing a religious discourse yet there is clearly a difference in severity. Measuring this difference is...

  • If the consumption of counterfeit goods is consistent with other forms of routine consumption practices, it is likely that they are purchased in everyday environments and situated within routine social contexts. Such a view is supported by the questionnaire data. Rather than being integrated into a subcultural technical elite, the most regular sites of purchase of counterfeit products were more mundane.

  • However, some focus group participants also found the use of electronic music “distracting.” Several students who disliked the use of DJ Spooky’s music accompanying Caligari noted being distracted by the modern drum loops and electronic sounds, claiming that they didn’t “suit” the film. Another student anonymously described having seen the film before, and feeling “far more removed from the film” because of the electronic music: “the experiment created an unconscious focus on where the film and the contemporary DJ track ‘synched’ up.

  • We predict that in 2019, Medi-Cal coverage will increase by 1.2 to 1.6 million (under the base and enhanced scenarios, respectively). Enrollment in Healthy Families will decline slightly as older children under 133 percent FPL will now qualify for Medi-Cal. An estimated 1.8 to 2.1 million will be enrolled in the Exchange with subsidies, while 2.1 to 2.2 million will remain in the non-group market or be enrolled in the Exchange without subsidies.11 Finally, the number of uninsured will decline by 1.8 to 2.7 million people, leaving 3.0 to 4.0 million Californians without coverage.

  • Nutrigenomics, proteomics and metabolomics are three new disciplines that will contribute to the rapid development of functional foods. Bioinformatics is a new tool that uses computer database technology to integrate data from multiple, and sometimes disparate, disciplines. Already these disciplines and tools have improved our understanding of food science and human nutrition. Discoveries in genetics make it possible to understand the effects of nutrients in processes at the molecular level in the body and also the variable effects of dietary components on each individual.

  • Lean thinking is not a manufacturing tactic or a cost-reduction program, but a management strategy that is applicable to all organizations because it has to do with improving processes. All organizations — including health care organizations — are composed of a series of processes, or sets of actions intended to create value for those who use or depend on them (customers/patients).

  • The importance of fisheries in a country cannot only be measured by the contribution to the GDP, but one must also take into consideration that fisheries resources and products are fundamental components of human feeding and employment. Another aspect that makes fisheries resources important is the self renewable character. Unlike mineral resources, if the fishery resources or any other biological resources are well managed, their duration is pratically unlimited.

  • Persons who are ill will be asked to defer travel so as not to spread influenza to other areas that are pandemic free. Supply lines may also be affected by self-imposed travel restrictions, with truckers/transporters unwilling to travel through or to infected areas. Difficulties at border crossings may substantially affect supply lines. Consideration should be given to purchase of products made in Canada/locally to avoid potential supply problems due to border crossing restrictions implemented at the time of the pandemic.

  • One might expect the e ects on buyers and suppliers to be symmetric: for both the current owner and a potential buyer of a particular used car, the increased cost of usage for the current owner of that car if he or she keeps the car will exactly equal the increased cost of usage for the potential buyer, if the two have similar driving habits. In other words, one might expect an increase in gasoline prices to reduce the willingness-to-pay for a particular car by about the same amount that it reduces a potential supplier's willingness-to-accept for that car.

In contrast to the fixed volume-to-volume matching used in [25], the space-time volumes of two videos across different space-time locations can be matched using our ASTPM method, making it better at coping with the large intraclass variations within the same type of events (e.g., moving objects in consumer videos can appear at different space- time locations, and the background within two different videos, even captured from the same scene, may be shifted due to considerable camera motion).

  • California, like many states, is facing a large budget deficit and difficult budgetary choices. The state legislature has made cuts to Early Care and Education (ECE)1 projected to total more than $1.6 billion between fiscal years 2009–2010 and 2011–2012 (California Budget Project [CBP] 2011). Since 2009, California has faced double-digit unemployment rates (California Employment Development Department 2011) and unemployment is projected to remain at that level through 2012 (Legislative Analyst’s Office [LAO] 2010b).

  • Many risks that we face on a daily basis may be unavoidable, so there is an expectation by individuals that the level of risk is being managed and reduced to safe levels through evidence-based risk assessments and public health interventions. There has been a growing recognition that risks need to be viewed in their public health context to ensure that the most important risks are prioritized and addressed. Under a broader public health imperative, risk assessments are used as an important process to quantify the probability of harmful effects to individuals, sub-populations (eg.
