Evaluation of institutional cancer registries in Colombia
Cuervo Luis Gabriel,Roca Sandra,Rodríguez María Nelcy,Stein Jane
Revista Panamericana de Salud Pública , 1999,
Abstract: The four primary objectives of this descriptive study were to: 1) design a quality-measurement instrument for institutional cancer registries (ICRs), 2) evaluate the existing ICRs in Colombia with the designed instrument, 3) categorize the different registries according to their quality and prioritize efforts that will efficiently promote better registries with the limited resources available, and 4) determine the institution with the greatest likelihood of successfully establishing Colombia's second population-based cancer registry. In 1990 the National Cancer Institute of Colombia developed 13 institution-based cancer registries in different Colombian cities in order to promote the collection of data from a large group of cancer diagnostic and treatment centers. During the first half of 1997, this evaluation reviewed 12 registries; one of the original 13 no longer existed. All of the Colombian institutions (hospitals) that maintain institution-based cancer registries were included in the study. At each institution, a brief survey was administered to the hospital director, the registry coordinator, and the registrar (data manager). Researchers investigated the institutions by looking at six domains that are in standard use internationally. Within each domain, questions were developed and selected through the Delphi method. Each domain and each question were assigned weights through a consensus process. In most cases, two interviewers went to each site to collect the information. The university hospitals in Cali, Pereira, and Medellín had substantially higher scores, reflecting a good level of performance. Four of the 12 institutions had almost no cancer registry work going on. Five of the 12 hospital directors considered that the information provided by the cancer registries influenced their administrative decisions. Three of the registries had patient survival data. Four of the institutions allocated specific resources to operate their cancer registries; in the other 8 hospitals there was no clear budget allocation. Seven of the hospital directors could not identify five or more objectives of a cancer registry. Data management was usually poor and resources insufficient at most of the institutions. In summary, the cancer registry system in Colombia varies greatly from institution to institution. A few of the hospitals do a good job while others have neglected the registries. The high, identical total scores for Pereira and Medellín suggest they would be good locations to establish new population-based cancer registries similar to the existing one in C
A Quantitative Analysis of Integrated Reporting via CAGR on Publicly Traded U.S. Corporations Listed in the S & P 500  [PDF]
Sean Stein Smith
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.88093
Abstract:

The business environment continues to change and evolve at a rapid pace, and the reporting process by which organizations communicate performance to external stakeholder must also change and adapt. As both financial and non-financial stakeholder become increasingly interested in not only the financial results of the organization, but how these results are achieved, management teams must take appropriate steps. Incorporating both the operational and financial results of the organization into data communicated to internal and external users remains a fiduciary responsibility of management professionals across industry lines. Integrated reporting, although not a panacea for short-termism and other pressures on organizations, does provide a vehicle for more comprehensive financial reporting. This research examines both the literature and academic support for integrated reporting, and, as of the date of this research, implications that adopting such a framework has a financial performance.

How Cryptocurrencies Are Changing What CPAs Need to Know about Fraud Prevention  [PDF]
Sean Stein Smith
Theoretical Economics Letters (TEL) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/tel.2018.814201
Abstract: The accounting profession has long occupied a role and fiduciary responsibility aligned with fraud prevention and safeguarding consumer data and finances. As cryptocurrencies become more prominent and widespread, including utilization by both individual consumers and organizations, the risk of unethical actors entering the market continues to rise. This research approaches the situation from two angles. First, a review of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology, including an overview of the initial coin offering (ICO) process is conducted, including regulatory updates in the space. Second, and important for both academic and practitioner end users of this research, a checklist, guide, and items to consider to assist in preventing fraud connected to cryptocurrencies will be provided.

BMC Bioinformatics , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-59
Abstract: In this manuscript, we present the Drosophila melanogaster PeptideAtlas, a fly proteomics and genomics resource of unsurpassed depth. Based on peptide mass spectrometry data collected in our laboratory the portal http://www.drosophila-peptideatlas.org webcite allows querying fly protein data observed with respect to gene model confirmation and splice site verification as well as for the identification of proteotypic peptides suited for targeted proteomics studies. Additionally, the database provides consensus mass spectra for observed peptides along with qualitative and quantitative information about the number of observations of a particular peptide and the sample(s) in which it was observed.PeptideAtlas is an open access database for the Drosophila community that has several features and applications that support (1) reduction of the complexity inherently associated with performing targeted proteomic studies, (2) designing and accelerating shotgun proteomics experiments, (3) confirming or questioning gene models, and (4) adjusting gene models such that they are in line with observed Drosophila peptides. While the database consists of proteomic data it is not required that the user is a proteomics expert.In 1995 the first complete genome sequence of a species was published [1]. Since then, the genomes of many other species have been sequenced and an increasing number of technologies have been developed that measure at a large or genome-wide scale specific properties of the genome and the products derived from it. These data increasingly complement the molecular biological approaches that are focused on specific molecules [2]. These so-called omics technologies are driven by measurements of thousands of molecules at a time. Due to the production of large amounts of complex data, such studies challenge data organization and management and call for bioinformatic contributions to biology.In the case of mRNA measurements, microarray technologies generated the first data

Analysis of Deformation in a High Entropy Alloy Using an Internal State Variable Model  [PDF]
Aaron Stein, Paul S. Follansbee
Materials Sciences and Applications (MSA) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/msa.2017.86033
Abstract: Deformation in the model high entropy alloy CoCrFeMnNi is assessed using an internal state variable constitutive model. A remarkable property of these alloys is the extraordinarily high strain hardening rates they experience in the plastic region of the stress strain curve. Published stress-strain measurements over a range of temperatures are analyzed. Dislocation obstacle interactions and the observed high rate of strain hardening are characterized in terms of state variables and their evolution. A model that combines a short-range obstacle and a long-range obstacle is shown to match experimental measurements over a wide range of temperatures and grain sizes. The long-range obstacle is thought to represent interactions of dislocations with regions of incomplete mixing or partial segregation. Dynamic strain aging also is observed at higher temperatures. Comparisons with measurements in austenitic stainless steel show some common trends.

Stein Masunda
International Journal of Economics and Research , 2011,
Abstract: Using the feasible generalised least squares panel data techniques and data for the period 1980 – 2003 from a representative sample of Zimbabwean sectors that include agriculture, manufacturing and mining sectors, the study indicated that real exchange rate misalignment is harmful to sectoral output.. The study indicated instead of undervaluation necessitating sectoral performance it however negatively affects sectoral output while real exchange rate overvaluation as expected, negatively and significantly affects sectoral output
