Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.812124
Abstract: The authors of this study adopted an approach from cognitive behavior modification to design a SMART strategy, and applied the intervention to high school students. This study used a multiple baseline across-subject design to measure the degree of social anxiety among three high school students for the duration of 3 to 5 weeks, and then used the SMART strategy to intervene and document their mastering of strategies and changes of social anxiety for 15 weeks. Their anxiety level was measured and recorded 4 weeks after the intervention. The results showed that: 1) the SMART strategy can be effectively applied to high school students to address their social anxiety; 2) after the SMART strategy intervention, the students’ social anxiety reduced instantly and significantly; 3) four weeks after the SMART strategy intervention, the intervention effect remained.

Abstract: The primary database used was the Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database. Subjects older than 20 years without ESRD, coronary heart disease, or stroke were included in the study. The case definition of gout in the present study was gout diagnosis and medical treatment for gout. An ESRD case was defined by the presence of chronic renal failure necessitating long-term renal replacement therapy. Multivariate Cox proportional hazards models were used to evaluate the risk of ESRD among gout patients.The analysis included data of 656,108 patients who were followed up for a mean of 8.0 years. Among them, 19,963 (3.0%) patients had gout. At the end of 2008, 2,377 individuals (gout, n = 276; non-gout, n = 2,101) had ESRD, and 861 individuals (gout, n = 77, 27.9%; non-gout, n = 521, 24.8%) died due to ESRD. The rates of incidence of ESRD were 1.73 and 0.41 cases per 1,000 patient-years in the gout and non-gout groups. After adjustment for age, sex, and history of diabetes mellitus and/or hypertension, gout was associated with a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.57 for ESRD (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.38-1.79; P < 0.001). In patients with ESRD, the adjusted HR for death in patients with gout was 0.95 (0.74-1.23, P = 0.71), which was similar to the HR obtained in patients without gout.Gout is associated with an increased hazard for development of ESRD.Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years. Continuous deterioration of renal function in patients with CKD eventually leads to the development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Patients with ESRD require renal replacement therapy, such as hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, or kidney transplantation, for sustenance. ESRD is increasingly becoming a major health burden worldwide [1,2]. The prevalence and incidence of ESRD are alarmingly high in Taiwan in particular [3]. A recent study based on data from the National Dialysis Registry of Taiwan revealed that 48,072 p

Differentially expressed genes in adipocytokine signaling pathway of adipose tissue in pregnancy  [PDF]
Dotun Ogunyemi, Jun Xu, Arnold M. Mahesan, Steve Rad, Eric Kim, Jacqueline Yano, Carolyn Alexander, Jerome I. Rotter, Y.-D. Ida Chen
Journal of Diabetes Mellitus (JDM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jdm.2013.32013

Objective: To profile the differential gene expression of the KEGG Adipocytokine Signaling pathway in omental compared to subcutaneous tissue in normal pregnancy. Study Design: Subjects included 14 nonobese, normal glucose tolerant, healthy pregnant women. Matched omental and subcutaneous tissue were obtained at elective cesarean delivery. Gene expression was evaluated using microarray and validated by RT-PCR. Differential gene expression was defined as ≥1.5 fold increase at p < 0.05. Results: Six genes were significantly downregulated with two upregulated genes in omental tissue. Downregulation of Adiponectin and Insulin Receptor substrate, key genes mediating insulin sensitivity, were observed with borderline upregulation of GLUT-1. There were downregulations of CD36 and acyl-CoA Synthetase Long-chain Family Member 1which are genes involved in fatty acid uptake and activation. There was a novel expression of Carnitine palmitoyltransferase 1C. Conclusion: Differential gene expression of Adipocytokine Signaling Pathway in omental relative to subcutaneous adipose tissue in normal pregnancy suggests a pattern of insulin resistance, hyperlipidemia, and inflammation.

Computing the Moore-Penrose Inverse of a Matrix Through Symmetric Rank-One Updates  [PDF]
Xuzhou Chen, Jun Ji
American Journal of Computational Mathematics (AJCM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ajcm.2011.13016
Abstract: This paper presents a recursive procedure to compute the Moore-Penrose inverse of a matrix A. The method is based on the expression for the Moore-Penrose inverse of rank-one modified matrix. The computational complexity of the method is analyzed and a numerical example is included. A variant of the algorithm with lower computational complexity is also proposed. Both algorithms are tested on randomly generated matrices. Numerical performance confirms our theoretic results.
Service Cooperation Policy in a Dual-Channel Supply Chain under Service Differentiation  [PDF]
Jun Chen, Ying Yang
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.46036

A service collaboration decision problem in a dual-channel supply chain is studied with the service level and the customer’s acceptance of the Internet channel is taken into consideration. Then the Stackelberg decentralized decision model and the centralized decision model are developed for two settings that the retailer provides the same service level in both channels or not. The conclusion implies that the system profits, the manufacturer’s optimal profit and retailer’s optimal profit are always higher when different services are provided than the same service, and the optimal service level for the direct channel is a little lower than that for the traditional channel under decentralized mode.

Worker Recruiting with Favoritism and Bribery  [PDF]
Gen Chen, Jun Tang
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2015.53048
Abstract: This paper discusses the corruptive action widespread in the organizations’ worker recruiting: favoritism and bribery. The managers of the firm are actually able to discern the type of the productivity of the job-seekers, but they utilize the information advantage through the two types of misconduct—favoritism and bribery, at the expense of the profit share of the principal (the owner) and the workers’ wage rent. The key conclusion is drawn from this paper as follows: neither the intensity of favoritism nor the wage level matters in determining whether there’s profit or loss in the firm, whereas the key variable is the relative situation of exterior labor market.
