Regular menses at 73? A peculiar presentation of postmenopausal bleeding  [PDF]
Matthew McKnoulty, S. Scott
Open Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (OJOG) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojog.2013.39125

Post menopausal bleeding is one of the most common conditions referred to gynaecology departments. Up to 5% of these women are found to have malignant, or pre-malignant lesions, with early detection and investigation being crucial for curative treatment. We report on the case of a 73-year-old women referred for having regular menses since 14 years of age and discuss the current investigation and management of post menopausal bleeding.

An Assessment of the English Proficiency of the Thai Workforce and Its Implication for the ASEAN Economic Community: An Empirical Inquiry  [PDF]
Alexander Franco, Scott S. Roach
Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2018.63050
The ten nation members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) utilize English as the official working language for the organization. This study focused on the nation of Thailand to examine the assessed level of English proficiency of its workforce in relation to its ability to interact within ASEAN’s economic community (AEC). This is the first academic study to utilize a sample population consisting of human resources personnel from the top 100 private companies in Thailand who are in charge of employee training for learning English. Self-administered questionnaires were used to obtain self-assessments on the issues of level of English proficiency, language training, resource allocation for communication preparedness in AEC, and overall perceptions of the importance of mastering English within their respective companies. The results indicate that the acquisition of English as an economic lingua franca was considered important regardless of the demographic factors of the company examined. A majority of the respondents expressed the belief that their businesses had provided adequate resource allocation for English preparedness and a majority also indicated that their respective workforces possessed adequate English skills. However, a majority also expressed assessments that the employees in their companies did not find it easy to learn English and that Thais in general, and their employees in particular, did not like learning the language.

Eta forms and the Chern Character
S. Scott
Mathematics , 2002,
Abstract: We prove two geometric index theorems for a family of first-order elliptic operators over a manifold with boundary by computing eta form representatives for the Chern character classes of the index bundle. The eta forms occur as relative and regularized traces on infinite-dimensional vector bundles realized as the limiting values of superconnection character forms.
Psychosocial Correlates of the Short-Form-36 Multidimensional Health Survey in University Students  [PDF]
M. Scott DeBerard, Kevin S. Masters
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.58104

Stress, social support, and coping correlates of the Short-Form 36 Health Survey (SF-36) were examined in 307 undergraduate students. Instruments included the SF-36, the Perceived Stress Scale, the Multidimensional Scale of Perceived Social Support, and the Ways of Coping Inventory-Revised. HRQOL appeared worse and reported stress and use of maladaptive coping strategies were higher than age-appropriate national norms. Stress, social-support, and coping strategies were correlated with SF-36 physical and mental health subscales. In a stepwise multiple regression equation predicting the SF-36 Mental Health Composite Scale, stress, escape-avoidance coping, problem-focused coping, and accepting-responsibility coping emerged as significant predictors. In another stepwise multiple regression equation predicting the SF-36 Physical Composite Scale, self-control coping and family support emerged as significant predictors. Results suggest that psychosocial measures are excellent predictors of mental HRQOL but are not as strong for physical HRQOL. Possible interventions for improving health status among college students are offered.

Perspectives on healthcare leader and leadership development

Abstract: spectives on healthcare leader and leadership development Perspectives (10266) Total Article Views Authors: Elaine S Scott Published Date July 2010 Volume 2010:2 Pages 83 - 90 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/JHL.S8292 Elaine S Scott College of Nursing, Graduate Nursing Science Department, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC USA Abstract: Healthcare delivery systems are complex entities that must merge the best of administrative and clinical practices into a new model of leadership. But, despite growing recognition that healthcare organizational leaders must partner with clinical leaders to address patient safety, evidence based practice, financial sustainability, and capacity, tensions between the groups remain. Healthcare is based in large, bureaucratic entities organized in administrative hierarchies with clinical or product line silos that thwart collaboration, limit inter-disciplinary engagement, and foster mistrust. Around the world healthcare accessibility, fragmentation and affordability issues challenge healthcare systems whether they are centralized, socialized systems or free market private and public enterprises. In response to these concerns, healthcare organizations are struggling to address the ‘how’ of integrating clinician competence in patient management with the financial imperatives of modern day delivery systems. To redesign healthcare services for effectiveness and efficiency and to improve patient safety and outcomes, organizations must redefine leadership using new paradigms that promote the development and diffusion of improvements and innovations. Current research evidence shows that there is a need for not just formal administrative leadership, but also a need to develop integrated leadership processes throughout healthcare delivery systems. Shared leadership concepts framed in the context of complexity leadership theory (CLT) provides a vehicle for rethinking old definitions of leadership and for mobilizing the collective energy of healthcare organizations.
Social media and personal blogging: Textures, routes and patterns Social media and personal blogging: Textures, routes and patterns

Abstract: Sociale medier og personlige blogs: teksturer, ruter og m nstre Weblogging (eller blogging) er et af de sociale medier, der er karakteristiske for den s kaldte web 2.0 generation. I denne artikel skal jeg pr sentere et studie i den danske blogosf re, hvis fokus er den personlige blog. Inspireret af mediegeografien skal jeg forf lge den tese, at den personlige blog kan forst s som en kropsliggjort, samarbejdende og distribueret praksis, der tilvejebringer et digitalt rum, som kan bebos af de deltagende, dvs. s vel bloggere som brugere. Inden for mediegeografien beskriver begrebet ”tekstur”, taget fra Henri Lefevbre og hverdagssociologien, hvordan selvet, hverdagen og det ordin re (i betydningen f lles og almene) v ves sammen, men p forskellige m der, der hver is r afm rker forskellige ruter i og imellem rum og steder, det virkelige og det virtuelle og derved ogs skaber forskellige m nstre i og af dette f llesrum (Falkheimer & Jansson, 2006; Jansson, 2002 og 2008). Ved hj lp af begreberne teksturer, ruter og m nstre identificeres i artiklen fire forskellige genrer i personlig blogging, der illustreres gennem 4 eksempler fra det danske blogmilj . Weblogging (or blogging) is one the social media, characteristic of the web 2.0 generation. In this article, I will present a research on the Danish blogosphere, the focus of which has been on individual and personal blogging. Inspired by media geography, I pursue the idea that personal blogging can be understood as an embodied, collaborative and distributed practice which constitutes a digital realm to be inhabited by its users. Within media geography, the concept of “textures”, taken form Henri Lefevbre and the sociology of everyday life, designates how the self, the everyday and the mundane are spun together and mark out different cultural-material routes in and between space and place, real and virtual and in so doing create different reticular patterns of the commonplace (Falkheimer & Jansson, 2006; Jansson, 2002, 2008). By means of the concepts of textures, routes and patterns, I identify four different genres in personal blogging to be illustrated by four examples from the Danish blog community.
Facebook – selvfremstilling, small talk og social regulering Facebook – selvfremstilling, small talk og social regulering [Facebook: Self representation, small talk, and social regulation]

Abstract: I denne artikel vil jeg ud fra et medialiseringsperspektiv p sociale medier, der sp rger til, hvordan de fremmer en s rlig netv rkssocialitet (Jensen, 2009; T kke, 2010a/b) og -kommunikation (Miller, 2008) dokumentere brugen af den sociale netv rksside Facebook i en dansk kontekst. Det vil jeg g re p baggrund af en kvalitativ unders gelse fra 2010, hvortil informanterne blev rekrutteret via et survey. Unders gelsen afd kker tre dilemmaer, der udspringer af det grundl ggende kommunikative paradoks, som netv rksmediet afs tter, og som vedr rer pr misserne for selvfremstilling, brugen af statusopdateringen og den sociale regulering. Disse dilemmaer s ttes i relief af dels aktuelle genre- og talehandlingsteorier (Miller, 2004; Butler, 2005), dels eksisterende unders gelser af relaterede aspekter s som sammens tningen af de personlige netv rk (”vennelister”) og graden af benhed og adgang til de personlige profiler (”privathed”). Mens herv rende unders gelse i grove tr k bekr fter forskningslitteraturen p disse felter, s er de ikke f r dokumenteret (og nuanceret) i en dansk sammenh ng. Artiklens v sentligste bidrag ligger dog i identificeringen af de tre kommunikative dilemmaer og i forbindelse hermed en fors gsvis genrebestemmelse af statusopdateringen og en tematisering af den implicitte sociale regulering og etik, hvilket ikke har v ret gjort f r. In this paper, I will document the use of Facebook in a Danish context, taking a mediatisation perspective focused on the network sociality in question (Jensen, 2009; T kke, 2010a/b) and the communication (Miller, 2008) of social media. This discussion is based on a qualitative study from 2010, consisting of participants recruited from a survey study. The study explores three dilemmas resulting from network media’s communicative paradox, involving the premises of self-representation, use of status updates, and social regulation. These dilemmas are contextualised by recent theories of genre and speech-acts (Miller, 2004; Butler, 2005) as well as by existing studies of related issues, such as the composition of personal networks (friend lists) and the degree to which personal profiles are open and accessible (privacy). While the study generally confirms recent research in these fields, such research has not previously been documented (or refined) in a Danish context. The paper’s most important contributions, however, consist of its identification of the three communicative dilemmas, its tentative genre classification of the status update, and its discussion of implicit social regulation and ethics, which have
