Cancer resource center of the desert patient navigator program: removing financial barriers to access to cancer care for rural Latinos
Diana Peacher, Helen Palomino, Eunjeong Ko and Susan I Woodruff
SpringerPlus , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/2193-1801-2-15
Abstract: Financial concerns are a significant thread that runs throughout the diagnostic, treatment, and post treatment journey of cancer patients. The complicated nature of patients’ circumstances and medical systems often hinders the patients going through the insurance conversion process. PNP plays a critical role in bridging the gap between patients and medical systems thus promoting cancer treatment access for this vulnerable population.

Tango, samba and love Tango, samba y amor
Pablo Palomino
Apuntes de Investigación del CECYP , 2008,
Abstract: This article proposes an explanation of the centrality of love in the poetic structure of tango and samba based on the modernization of the cities of Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro in the 1920’s. Through the analysis of lyrics from both genres, and a survey of Argentine and Brazilian historiographies of popular music, this article lays out a transnational perspective about the making of urban popular cultures of the early Twentieth Century, and also provides a reflection on music as an historiographic object. Este artículo plantea la centralidad de la temática amorosa en el tango y el samba de entreguerras como consecuencia de las características de la modernización de Buenos Aires y Rio de Janeiro alrededor de los a os 20. A través del análisis de algunas letras de ambos géneros, y de un recorrido por ciertos textos clave de la historiografía argentina y brasile a dedicada a la historia de la música popular, se proponen las bases para una mirada transnacional sobre la construcción de las culturas populares urbanas del siglo veinte, así como una reflexión acerca de la música como objeto historiográfico.

A comparison between two logical formalisms for rewriting
Miguel Palomino
Computer Science , 2006,
Abstract: Meseguer's rewriting logic and the rewriting logic CRWL are two well-known approaches to rewriting as logical deduction that, despite some clear similarities, were designed with different objectives. Here we study the relationships between them, both at a syntactic and at a semantic level. Even though it is not possible to establish an entailment system map between them, both can be naturally simulated in each other. Semantically, there is no embedding between the corresponding institutions. Along the way, the notions of entailment and satisfaction in Meseguer's rewriting logic are generalized. We also use the syntactic results to prove reflective properties of CRWL.
Osteoprotegerin Secretion by Mevastatin via p38MAPK and NF-kB  [PDF]
Helen Smith
Open Journal of Rheumatology and Autoimmune Diseases (OJRA) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojra.2012.22006
Abstract: Osteoprotegerin (OPG) is a protein produced by many cell types that has the remarkable property of inhibiting bone loss. It does this by binding to the key bone resorptive cytokine, receptor activator of NF-kB ligand (RANKL). This cytokine is produced mainly by osteoblastic cells and is instrumental in osteoclast differentiation. If the ratio of RANKL:OPG increases, bone resorption increases and results in bone loss in diseases such osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and hypercalcaemia of malignancy. Hence, if drugs can be found that increase OPG, this will decrease the activity of osteoclasts and therefore bone resorption. Statins are cholesterol lowering drugs that have recently been shown to increase bone formation in rodents. It was hypothesised from this finding that this could be due to an increase in OPG production. If these commonly prescribed drugs could be used to prevent bone loss or to increase bone formation then this may prove a useful means of reducing fracture risk in patients. Treating Saos-2 osteoblast-like cells in vitro with mevastatin increased OPG production and secretion through the mevalonate pathway. A failure of geranylgeranylation of Rho and/or farnesylation of Ras proteins leads to an increase in PI-3K activation then AKT activation leading to several different signaling pathways such as MAPK’s and NF-kB. NF-kB and p38MAPK inhibitors prevented the statin stimulation of OPG but not the decrease in cell number, suggesting that statins regulate OPG secretion via PI-3K, p38MAPK and NF-kB.
Religious Wear (Uniforms) in Psychiatry  [PDF]
Helen Bright
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2014.42015

Uniforms represent more than just a body cover. There could be symbols of status, power, authority, values, beliefs, identity, wealth representation, self-protection, health and safety, suppression of individuality and identification on one hand by the wearer. The observers may perceive uniforms differently based on their experiences, expectations, education, perceptual ability, conformity, status, power, self-confidence, and need for trust and communication without barrier or judgment. Forty five adult mentally ill patients (21 female and 24 male) were administered questionnaires with Linkert Scale regarding how approachable or off-putting they find casual and religious wear in social worker. Significantly more patients preferred casual wear to religious. Chi squared test equals 28.689 with p value of less than 0.0001 for four degrees of freedom.

The Influence of L2 Transfer on L3 English Written Production in a Bilingual German/Italian Population: A Study of Syntactic Errors  [PDF]
Helen Forsyth
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2014.43036

This study attempts to examine and identify instances of negative “interlanguage transfer” (Sharwood Smith & Kellerman, 1986), which is a phenomenon belonging to the broader field of crosslinguistic influence, in written L3 English production in a bilingual Italian/German population. Transfer from learners’ L2 has attracted increasing attention over recent years (De Angelis & Selinker, 2001; Jessner, 2006) and research has suggested various potential triggers for facilitative and negative L2 transfer, as well as producing mixed results regarding the individual aspects of language that may be susceptible to transfer from a learner’s L2. Quantitative data were collected from 46 subjects in the form of questionnaires enquiring about language backgrounds and attitudes, and written summaries. The Statistical Package for Social Science was used to analyse specific instances of written syntactic errors resulting from both L1 and L2 transfer and these were then examined in the light of the questionnaire responses in order to identify possible determining factors behind any L2 transfer for both linguistic groups. Results provided evidence of negative syntactic L2 transfer from German and Italian in English L3, yet the possible determining factors were sometimes unexpected and not necessarily identical for both groups. This study suggests that L2 transfer in multilingual settings is a very real possibility which may be of future interest in terms of multilingual language processing and have consequences for the L3 classroom.

Designing Economics Electives with a Significant Writing Component  [PDF]
Helen Schneider
Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.84040
Abstract: This paper presents a design for the structure and assessment of a research paper assignment in an upper level economics elective with a significant writing component. Writing component design focuses on what graduating economics majors should be able to do with the knowledge they acquire in the major and on their ability to create original analysis and empirical models in courses with and without an econometrics prerequisite. The author provides writing workshop and minimal marking approaches to improving the writing skills of undergraduates. Finally, the paper presents the link between main modules of the course and proficiencies we expect from graduating majors.
Entre el romance, las "perras" y el desencanto: una mirada a las relaciones amorosas de los jóvenes bogotanos
Palomino Forero,Jorge Alberto;
Nómadas , 2012,
Abstract: the article presents the tensions generated in romantic life among young people in bogota, as a new way of subjectivity that emerges through the so-called figure of the doggy - bitch. the text explores how the seduction performances done by this subject, destabilize the notion of legitimate partner through romantic love, giving way to other modes of comprehending love and sexuality. however, it is concluded that the ideal of romantic love remains a strong ally for the capitalist system reproduction process.
