Abnormal liver function and central obesity associate with work-related fatigue among the Taiwanese workers
Yu-Cheng Lin, Jong-Dar Chen, Chao-Jen Chen
World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2008,
Abstract: AIM: To examine the associations between objective health indicators and high need for recovery (NFR) after work, one of the subjective presentations of work related-fatigue, among apparently healthy workers in modern workplaces.METHODS: From October to December, 2007, an annual health examination was performed for the workers from an electronics manufacturing factory in Taiwan. Health records of 1216 workers with a relatively homogeneous socioeconomic status were used for analysis. The health checkups included personal and NFR scale questionnaires, physical examinations, blood tests for biochemistry and hematology. The workers within the top tertile NFR score were defined as high-NFR workers.RESULTS: After adjusted for potential confounders, the workers with elevated alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and central obesity had a significantly higher NFR after work, with increased risks of 1.4-fold [95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.01-2.0] and 1.8-fold (95% CI = 1.2-2.7), respectively. Shiftworkers had a 2.0-fold (95% CI = 1.5-2.6) increased risk for high-NFR. The associations between high-NFR and lipid profiles, blood sugar, hematology indexes or blood pressure were insignificant after controlling for confounders.CONCLUSION: For apparently healthy workers, high NFR after work is not simply a subjective experience. Objective health measures, such as elevated ALT and increased waist circumference, should be carefully evaluated for the apparently healthy workers having a higher NFR after work.

Journal of Chongqing Normal University , 2009,
Abstract: In the use of method of "Replacing time by space", on the analysis of species composition, amount and distribution, ecological dominance as well as species similarity, and diversity, the properties of soil seed banks of different land use system located in different ecological evolution sequence, including natural forest, secondary forest, shrub grassland, cropland, artificial woodland, abandoned dry field are studied in Beibei, Wushan, Qianjiang and Jifo Mountain of Nanchuan. They are the representative karst mountainous region of the Three Gorges Reservoir region within Chongqing municipality. The results show that 68 species germinated in all of 24 plots. Most seeds in different land use system soil seed banks are herbage species, and have a abvious connection with above vegetations, indicating that vegetations are at the early stages of succession and serious degradation. The amount of seeds of xylophyta species decreased and that of herbaceous species dominated by farmland weeds have increased with the increase of land use intensity. The geographical compositions of herbaceous plants of thrub-grass plot's soil seed bank indicate that genera of cosmopolitan have a heavy percentage, indicating that the growth of herbaceous layer is affected significantly by human being's activities. Therefore, it is important to preserve rare tree species in existing karst vegetation for improving the karst thrub grass land's evolution successively. From abandoned cropland, shrub-grass land to secondary forest land ,the ecological dominance has declined and the diversity and richness indices have increased. After the karst slope being cultivated, the soil seed banks of it have been destroyed soon. Therefore, the changes of land use pattern are the main threat to the karst secondary vegetation and the soil need banks in Three Gorges reservoir region.

Hearing ability and its relationship with psychosocial health, work-related variables, and health care use: the National Longitudinal Study on Hearing
J. Nachtegaal,J.M. Festen,S.E. Kramer
Audiology Research , 2011, DOI: 10.4081/audiores.2011.e9
Abstract: Worldwide, more than 250 million people experience problems with hearing (Mathers et al. 2003). Depending on the definition of hearing impairment and the criteria applied, prevalence rates in adult populations vary from 10 to 20 percent (Davis, 1989; Karlsmose et al. 2000; Mathers et al. 2003; Hannaford et al. 2005). Although the prevalence of auditory disability is highest in older age groups (i.e. >65 years), there is still a large number of younger people with hearing problems. In 2004, Dutch Statistics estimated that about 1.5 million persons aged 12 years and older experienced problems with hearing when in a conversation with three or more persons, whereas in a conversation with one other person 290.000 individuals reported difficulties (Gommer & Poos 2010). The numbers of individuals younger than 75 years in these groups were 1.2 million and 227.000 respectively (Gommer & Poos 2010). The most prevalent type of hearing impairment is irreversible, which makes it a common chronic condition in human populations. There is a wide range of disabilities that people may experience as a result of their hearing loss, varying from difficulties using the telephone to communicate, to feeling restricted to participate in leisure activities. Another area which might be influenced by reduced hearing ability is psychosocial health.

International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2014.51008

Introduction: The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive 5-year audit of patients undergoing laparotomy for suspected or confirmed gynaecological malignancy to document the frequency and incidence of adverse events and to investigate factors associated with shorter length of stay and readmission to hospital. Methods: A 5-year surgical audit of the period commencing 2008 and concluding 2012. All patients undergoing laparotomy were included in the audit without exclusions. Approval was granted by the local Ethics Review Committee. Results: Four hundred and twenty-seven patients underwent laparotomy for suspected or confirmed gynaecological malignancy and were managed by Fast Track Surgery (FTS) principles. Average age was 54.8 years and average weight and BMI were 73.4 kg and 28.1 respectively. Ultimately 254 (59%) patients had confirmed malignancy. Average surgery duration was 2.36 hours and average estimated blood loss (EBL) at surgery was 262 mL. Median and mean LOS was 3.0 and 3.5 days respectively with 125 (29%) patients discharged on day 2. Overall transfusion rate was 5%. Other adverse events in decreasing frequency were hospital readmission (3.7%), significant wound infection (3%) and unplanned High Dependency Unit (HDU) admission (1.4%). All other adverse events were uncommon with rates <0.5%. Factors associated with a short LOS included year of surgery, age, performance status, malignant vs benign pathology, the use of COX-2 inhibitors, operation time, incision type, transfusion, and radical hysterectomy, at least 1 complication, if patients tolerated early oral feeding (EOF). In multivariable analysis, year, age, performance status, the use of COX-2 inhibitors, operation time and incision type were significant. Factors associated with readmission included the use of COX-2 inhibitors, operation time, performance of a lymph node dissection, return to operating theatre, operation category at least 1 complication, and in multivariable analysis lymph node dissection and the occurrence of at least 1 complication were significant. Conclusions: This 5-year audit is important in establishing a contemporary incidence and the prevalence rate of serious adverse events for patients with suspected or confirmed gynaecological cancer undergoing laparotomy and managed by FTS principles. The community can be reassured that the incidence of serious adverse events is low when managed by FTS principles.

Lessons Learned from Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) Systems in the United States  [PDF]
Frederick Bloetscher, Chi Ho Sham, Joseph J. Danko III, Samuel Ratick
Journal of Water Resource and Protection (JWARP) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jwarp.2014.617146
Abstract: This paper is the result of a survey and analyses of available data from 204 Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) sites in the United States. This ASR site survey included all active and inactive sites and collected both operational and construction details. The inactive sites are of particular interest here because these are the projects from which valuable lessons can often be learned. The intent of this paper is to examine the reasons for those projects that are terminated. Statistical analyses indicated that there were factors associated with terminated ASR projects: general geographic location (e.g., region), operational issue, storage cycle, casing material, and injection formation. The injection formation involves local geology and aquifer characteristics (i.e., whether the aquifer is leaky and/or unconfined, and if water can be displaced to surface water bodies or adjacent aquifers). Operational problems associated with inactive projects include well clogging, metals mobilization, a low percentage of recovery for injected water, and disinfection byproducts in the recovered water.

Gómez-Jarabo,G.; Pe?alver González,J. C.;
Intervención Psicosocial , 2007, DOI: 10.4321/S1132-05592007000200003
Abstract: this paper adopts the council of europe political view of care need. this is defined in psychosocial terms and takes place within a socio-medical framework. obviously, people may be in need of care for a number of reasons such as becoming old or with disability or a combination of both situations. thus, regardless of these reasons, what appears is a population having difficulties to get by with basic daily activities. therefore, the bigger the change in the social structures of the living-together, the higher the need of care. likewise, the less developed the social services, particularly the so-called socio-medical space, the more vulnerable the people in need of care. with respect to the prospects of the1999 survey on deficiencies, disabilities and health conditions, we think that if an efficient national care need system is not developed the biological success attained in the past century will be followed by a resounding social failure.
Entre o desejo e a necessidade de aprender línguas: algumas reflex?es sobre o que também está em jogo nesse processo
Andrade, Eliane Righi de;
Revista Brasileira de Linguística Aplicada , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S1984-63982009000100014
Abstract: based on a discoursive perspective, this article intends to analyze some discoursive segments produced by undergraduate teachers in oral interviews, searching for identifying some foreign language representations of learning, which can appear in their speech. as a theoretical support, we are going to develop two concepts from psychoanalysis (need and desire), and also the idea of technologies of the self, developed by foucault in his work. considering the results of the analysis, we can conclude that learning a foreign language requires not only specific knowledge, such as vocabulary or grammar, but also involves unconscious processes which constitute the subject and his/her identity as a teacher. this identity, however, is conditioned by history and social meanings, which are produced by symbolic and imaginary relations.
