Establishing Normative Values for the Barnett Balance Assessment-Sit (BBA-SIT)  [PDF]
Lela Rasegan, Holly Klein, Paige Bell, Brandon Bishop, Ellen Herlache-Pretzer
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2018.62005
Abstract: The purpose of this descriptive study was to collect quantitative, normative data for the Barnett Balance Assessment-Sitting (BBA-SIT), a newly-developed dynamic sitting balance assessment tool based on the Barnett Balance Assessment (BBA). The BBA-SIT was administered to a total of 180 participants (30 people in each of the following age categories: 18 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 - 59, 60 - 69, and 70+) who did not have any current balance deficits. A review of normative data collected indicated no variation in the total assessment scores within and between groups. Future research on the BBA-SIT is needed with balance-impaired populations to determine if the BBA-SIT is sensitive enough to identify subtle differences in dynamic sitting balance in individuals with various levels of balance impairment.
Expression of a crown gall biological control phenotype in an avirulent strain of Agrobacterium vitis by addition of the trifolitoxin production and resistance genes
Thomas C Herlache, Eric W Triplett
BMC Biotechnology , 2002, DOI: 10.1186/1472-6750-2-2
Abstract: TFX was shown to be inhibitory in vitro against several A. vitis strains. TFX production, expressed from the stable plasmid pT2TFXK, conferred biological control activity to an avirulent strain of A. vitis. F2/5, against three virulent, TFX-sensitive strains of A. vitis tested on Nicotiana glauca. F2/5(pT2TFXK) is significantly reduces number and size of galls when co-inoculated with tumorigenic strain CG78 at a 10:1 ratio, but is ineffective at 1:1 or 1:10 ratios. F2/5(pT2TFXK) is effective when co-inoculated with tumorigenic strain CG435 at 10:1 and 1:1 ratios, but not at a 1:10 ratio. When F2/5(pT2TFXK) is co-inoculated with CG49 at a 10:1 ratio, the incidence of gall formation does not decline but gall size decreases by more than 70%. A 24 h pre-inoculation with F2/5(pT2TFXK) does not improve biological control at the 1:10 ratio.TFX production by an avirulent strain of Agrobacterium does confer in that strain the ability to control crown gall disease on Nicotiana glauca. This is the first demonstration that the production of a ribosomally synthesized, post-translationally modified peptide antibiotic can confer reduction in plant disease incidence from a bacterial pathogen.Agrobacterium vitis strains are causative agents of crown gall, an economically important disease [1,2]. A. vitis F2/5 is an effective biological control agent against many A. vitis tumorigenic strains [3]. Strain F2/5 produces an antibiotic toxic to many A. vitis strains in vitro. However, two lines of evidence suggest that this antibiotic plays a minor role in disease suppression. Strains that are susceptible to the antibiotic in vitro, such as A. vitis strain CG78, are able to infect the plant in the presence of F2/5 [3], and Tn5 mutants of F2/5 lacking F2/5 antibiotic production appear to be unaffected in crown gall biological control [4]. Biological control by F2/5 is grape-specific, as F2/5 is not effective on non-grapevine host plants such as Nicotiana glauca. Furthermore, F2/5 is not ef
Passing the Buck, or Thinking about Experience? Conditions for Professional Development among Teachers in a Norwegian Middle School  [PDF]
Ellen Ramvi
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2017.52014
Abstract: This paper uses psychoanalytic ideas to explore obstacles and conditions for learning from experience among teachers. In specific, this is about consequences of failure in relationships. A particular situation that happened during an ethnographic study in a middle school in Norway is used to get as close as possible to a teacher’s feelings and perceptions of a frustrating situation. The situation is followed up to understand how the individual teacher tried to deal with the problem and how her colleagues and the school management tried to support and help her. Interpreting the situation to involve violation of all dimensions of the teacher’s subjectivity (personal, professional and cultural), the problem seems to be too complex to deal with in the school organization. It seems as if teachers and leadership unconsciously avoid unbearable feelings, with the consequence that violation of the teachers is not recognised, and thus not possible to learn from. Problems were repeated rather than understood.
E-mentoring as a Critical E-learning Approach: The Impact of Social Presence on E-mentoring  [PDF]
Ellen A. Ensher
Communications and Network (CN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/cn.2013.53B1001
Abstract: One important form of e-learning is e-mentoring. Virtual mentoring can occur within the context of formal organiza- tional programs or develop spontaneously between individuals online. While e-mentoring is burgeoning as a practice, theoretical research related to this important phenomenon has been limited. The purpose of this paper is to suggest that social presence theory presents a useful conceptual framework for understanding mentors’ willingness to participate in e-mentoring relationship and on their satisfaction. In sum, mentoring relationships that offer a blended approach with both high and low social presence forms of computer-mediated-communication (CMC) will be more satisfying to men- tors than those with low social presence CMC forms only. Implications for research and practice are discussed.

The design, development and evaluation of a self-instructional module for nursing practice standards  [PDF]
June Anonson, Mary Ellen Walker
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.38073
Abstract:

The purpose of this research was to improve nursing professionals’ understanding of the important link to safe, competent, and ethical practices that Nursing Practice Standards (NPS) serve. This research on NPS may improve the scope and comprehensiveness by which the Standards are integrated with clinical, educational, administrative, and research-based nursing practices. This research was unique in that it includes nurses in developing NPS. The method by which this study was done involved sixteen practicing nurses and seven instructional design experts from Alberta, Canada participating in designing, developing, and evaluating a NPS module. Nursing practice standards are a vital aspect of performing safe, efficient and effective patient care. The manner in which Nursing Standard Practices are presented and taught will directly influence a nurse’s ability to understand the value of NPS and successfully incorporate NPS into practice.

Information scanning – keeping in touch with best practice in breastfeeding
Ellen McIntyre
International Breastfeeding Journal , 2006, DOI: 10.1186/1746-4358-1-15
Abstract: There is so much we still need to know about how best to enable mothers to successfully breastfeed. In addition, we are all time-poor in an ever increasing information-rich environment. This paper describes some of the methods practitioners (those directly involved with helping mothers) can use to scan the environment for up-to-date information about best practice in breastfeeding. By keeping in touch – with other practitioners and International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC), with researchers, with decision makers, and with research findings – practitioners can ensure they help mothers most effectively.Attend relevant conferences, seminars and workshops in your area but also once in a while go to a conference in another state or region or even overseas. While there is an added cost, it is worthwhile broadening your horizons beyond your local area. While at conferences, make the most of the opportunity and network with other delegates. To keep informed about conferences, join your local professional lactation organization and the International Lactation Consultants Association (ILCA) [1]. Check their websites as well as the International Board of Lactation Consultants Examiners (IBLCE) website regularly to keep up to date with issues pertinent to this profession [2]. Their links are also worth viewing. You might also organize to visit other IBCLCs at their workplaces.Lactnet, an email list of health professionals and others interested in discussing issues of breastfeeding contains a wealth of information [3]. Although it can be very time consuming to read the emails submitted by those among the 3300 plus subscribers, it does have an archival facility to assist with searching specific topics.As mentioned above, attend conferences but also make the effort to talk to the researchers who are presenting their work. If you have read some of their work, send them an email (most papers list author contact details) if you wish to know more or wish to share you

Competing interests7. ReferencesThe etiology of reptilian viral diseases can be attributed to a wide range of viruses occurring across different genera and families. Thirty to forty years ago, studies of viruses in reptiles focused mainly on the zoonotic potential of arboviruses in reptiles and much effort went into surveys and challenge trials of a range of reptiles with eastern and western equine encephalitis as well as Japanese encephalitis viruses [1-3]. In the past decade, outbreaks of infection with West Nile virus in human populations and in farmed alligators in the USA have seen the research emphasis placed on the issue of reptiles, particularly crocodiles and alligators, being susceptible to, and reservoirs for, this serious zoonotic disease [4-7]. Although there are many recognised reptilian viruses, the evidence for those being primary pathogens is relatively limited. Transmission studies establishing pathogenicity and cofactors are likewise scarce, possibly due to the relatively low commercial importance of reptiles, difficulties with the availability of animals and permits for statistically sound experiments, difficulties with housing of reptiles in an experimental setting or the inability to propagate some viruses in cell culture to sufficient titres for transmission studies. Viruses as causes of direct loss of threatened species, such as the chelonid fibropapilloma associated herpesvirus and ranaviruses in farmed and wild tortoises and turtles, have re-focused attention bac
