Educational Leadership for E-Learning in the Healthcare Workplace
Dorothy (Willy) Fahlman
International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning , 2012,
Abstract: Effective educational leadership can make a difference in the resolution of complex issues that impact today’s demand-driven educational marketplace. The ongoing professional and skill development needs of human health resources may be best managed through distributed strategic leadership blended with servant leadership. Together these two approaches may offer the critical bridge for effective educational leadership for e-learning within the healthcare workplace.
The Genetic Component of the Forced Diving Bradycardia Response in Mammals
Andreas Fahlman
Frontiers in Physiology , 2011, DOI: 10.3389/fphys.2011.00063
Abstract: We contrasted the forced diving bradycardia between two genetically similar (inbred) rat strains (Fischer and Buffalo), compared to that of outbred rats (Wistar). The animals were habituated to forced diving for 4 weeks. Each animal was then tested during one 40 s dive on each of 3 days. The heart rate (fH) was measured before, during, and after each dive. Fischer and Buffalo exhibited marked difference in dive bradycardia (Fischer: 120.9 ± 14.0 beats min?1 vs. Buffalo: 92.8 ± 12.8 beats min?1, P < 0.05). Outbred rats showed an intermediate response (103.0 ± 30.9 beats min?1) but their between-animal variability in mean dive fH and pre-diving resting fH were higher than the inbred strains (P < 0.05), which showed no difference (P > 0.05). The decreased variability in fH in inbred rats as compared with the outbred group indicates that reduced genetic variability minimizes variability of the diving bradycardia between individuals. Heritability within strains was assessed by the repeatability (R) index and was 0.93 ± 0.05 for the outbred, 0.84 ± 0.16 for Buffalo, and 0.80 ± 0.12 for Fischer rats for fH during diving. Our results suggest that a portion of the mammalian diving bradycardia may be a heritable trait.

An Exploration of Mindfulness Practices and Leadership  [PDF]
Dorothy A. Sisk
Creative Education (CE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2018.99097
Abstract: This article explores the use of mindfulness practices in a leadership program, and highlights two major contributors to the development of mindfulness, Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk and Dr. Jon Kabat Zinn, a physician. Selected mindfulness programs are reviewed, and a research study integrates mindfulness practices in a leadership program, and the effect of mindfulness practices on student leadership is discussed with results and conclusions.
Anomeric specificity of D-glucose metabolism study in rat and human erythrocytes  [PDF]
Willy J. Malaisse
Advances in Biological Chemistry (ABC) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/abc.2012.21001
Abstract: The anomeric specificity of D-glucose metabolism in erythrocytes has been since 1985 the matter of extensive investigations reported in about ten publications. The present report aims at providing an integrated review of the major findings on this issue.
Role of Calcium in Glucagon Secretion  [PDF]
Willy J. Malaisse
Advances in Biological Chemistry (ABC) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/abc.2014.43023
Abstract: The role of calcium ions in the process by which nutrients affect glucagon secretion by pancreatic islet α-cells remains the matter of an apparently endless debate. In the prolongation of recent articles dealing with this matter, the present review draws attention to the dual role of Ca2+ as revealed by prior publications. In such a perspective, emphasis is placed on the increase in glucagon output in response to the omission of extracellular Ca2+ as recorded in the presence of D-glucose or 2-ketoisocaproate, the permissive role of extracellular Ca2+ in the positive secretory response to arginine or a mixture of fumarate, glutamate and pyruvate, and the effects of an organic calcium-antagonist on glucagon output. Considering the role currently ascribed to Ca2+ in the activation of motile events involved in stimulus-secretion coupling, attention is also given to the effects of cytochalasin B, D2O and mitotic-spindle inhibitors upon the secretory response of α-cells exposed to D-glucose in the absence or presence of arginine.
The Effect of Age and Educational Level of Owner/Managers on SMMEs’ Access to Bank Loan in Eritrea: Evidence from Asmara City  [PDF]

American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.411069

The general objective of this study was to find out the influence of owner/manager characteristics on SMEs’ access to bank loan. A sample of 87 small and medium manufacturing enterprises was drawn from Asmara city using proportionate systematic sampling. A reliable primary data was collected through semi structured and structured questionnaires which were personally administered by the researcher. Descriptive and econometric statistical analysis techniques were used to analyze the data. The study, using logistic regression, found out that age of the owner/manager has significant effect on SMMEs’ access to bank loan. On the other hand, educational level of the owner/manager does not have significant effect on access to bank loan. Both the variables have positive effect on SMMEs’ access to bank loan.

Combining Teaching and Library Work: the Hybrid Academic
Dorothy Sheridan
Liber Quarterly : The Journal of European Research Libraries , 2002,
Abstract: This paper focuses on some of the issues raised when professional library staff combine archive management with an active teaching role, drawing on my own experience as an archivist in the University of Sussex Library. There are of course many archivists who are also teachers on professional training courses for prospective archivists but my concern here is teaching in higher education in subject areas other than library, archive and information sciences while using archival resources.
