Nursing Nomenclature and Classification System Development
Gordon, M
Online Journal of Issues in Nursing , 1998,
Abstract: Classification is a rather new idea in nursing. It began as a movement to develop a language that would describe the clinical judgments made by nurses. There was great support by clinicians for describing problems that nurses are educated and licensed to treat which are not in medical language systems. Currently there are major efforts nationally and internationally to develop a nursing language system that includes nursing diagnoses, interventions and outcomes. These are the basic elements in a nursing classification for practice, minimum data set for health statistics, in costing out patient care, developing computerized patient records, and for education and research.

Abstract:
The Dynamics of Foraging Trails in the Tropical Arboreal Ant Cephalotes goniodontus
Deborah M. Gordon
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0050472
Abstract: The foraging behavior of the arboreal turtle ant, Cephalotes goniodontus, was studied in the tropical dry forest of western Mexico. The ants collected mostly plant-derived food, including nectar and fluids collected from the edges of wounds on leaves, as well as caterpillar frass and lichen. Foraging trails are on small pieces of ephemeral vegetation, and persist in exactly the same place for 4–8 days, indicating that food sources may be used until they are depleted. The species is polydomous, occupying many nests which are abandoned cavities or ends of broken branches in dead wood. Foraging trails extend from trees with nests to trees with food sources. Observations of marked individuals show that each trail is travelled by a distinct group of foragers. This makes the entire foraging circuit more resilient if a path becomes impassable, since foraging in one trail can continue while a different group of ants forms a new trail. The colony’s trails move around the forest from month to month; from one year to the next, only one colony out of five was found in the same location. There is continual searching in the vicinity of trails: ants recruited to bait within 3 bifurcations of a main foraging trail within 4 hours. When bait was offered on one trail, to which ants recruited, foraging activity increased on a different trail, with no bait, connected to the same nest. This suggests that the allocation of foragers to different trails is regulated by interactions at the nest.
Ultrasound-guided, large-bore, vacuum-assisted needle excision of fibroadenomata of the breast: a patient satisfaction survey
R Gordon, M Shere
Breast Cancer Research , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/bcr2380
Abstract: We looked at the case records of 198 patients who had had 211 fibroadenomata removed in our unit between 1999 and 2006. We sent these patients a questionnaire about satisfaction and cosmetic outcome.The mean age of patients was 30.1 years (range 15 to 64). The mean size of fibroadenoma excised was 17.9 mm (range 6.6 to 36.5). 102 questionnaires were returned (51.5%). The mean score (5 point scale) for anxiety surrounding the procedure was 3.2, the mean pain score was 2.5. Only 21.6% could see a visible scar and of these only two said that it bothered them; 16.7% said that they could still feel a lump; and 83.9% of those who had previously had a surgical excision said that they preferred the mammotome excision.This is a well tolerated procedure and has advantages for the patient, the surgeon and the health care provider. As it has become a cosmetic procedure, the measure of outcome is patient satisfaction. We feel that this procedure should be the standard of care.
Caries secundaria
Figueroa-Gordon,M;
Acta Odontológica Venezolana , 2009,
Abstract: the secondary or recurrent caries is one of the main reasons for replacement of restorations. the lesion secondary caries occurs at the margin of an existing restoration, and consist of two parts, an outer lesion and/or a wall lesion. the clinical diagnosis, is based on the presence of staining and ditching marginal, both signs are not absolute criteria for the diagnosis of secondary caries. the next literature review presents recent studies of the association between secondary caries to the following: marginal ditching, marginal staining, affected dentin and restorative material.

Caries secundaria
M Figueroa-Gordon
Acta Odontológica Venezolana , 2009,
Abstract: La caries secundaria también denominada caries recurrente constituye una de las razones principales de reemplazo de las restauraciones. Es una lesión de caries que se localiza adyacente a una restauración, y puede originarse como una lesión externa y /o lesión de pared. El diagnóstico clínico, esta basado en la presencia de pigmentación y brecha marginal, ambos signos no son criterios absolutos para el diagnóstico de caries secundaria. En la siguiente revisión se exponen estudios recientes de la asociación entre caries secundaria con los siguientes aspectos: brecha marginal, pigmentación marginal, dentina afectada y material restaurador. The secondary or recurrent caries is one of the main reasons for replacement of restorations. The lesion secondary caries occurs at the margin of an existing restoration, and consist of two parts, an outer lesion and/or a wall lesion.

Abstract:
Critical Anthropomorphism, Uncritical Anthropocentrism, and Na ve Nominalism
Gordon M. Burghardt
Comparative Cognition & Behavior Reviews , 2007,
Abstract: The main title of Clive Wynne’s essay poses the question: "What are animals?" My initial thought was that the second part of the title, "Why anthropomorphism is still not a scientific approach to behavior," should be the sole title, since a screed against anthropomorphism seems the main point of the paper. But, upon further reflection I now see that Wynne is questioning what type of animals we are, what kinds of behavior and underlying processes we share with other creatures, and how we should go about finding out about these similarities. Good questions, uncritical answers.
