Is primary biliary cirrhosis a risk factor for hepatic and extrahepatic malignancies?
Melanie Deutsch
Annals of Gastroenterology , 2009,
Abstract: Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) represents a classical cause of liver cirrhosis but clear data about the true risk of the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) are still lacking.Data are based especially on epidemiologic studies from different geographical areas and, since PBC is a relatively rare disease with a very slow natural course, the true incidence of HCC is not well known. However, most of the studies agree that patients with cirrhotic stage PBC are at increased risk and they should be included in a surveillance program.On the other hand, some authors suggested during the 1970s and early 1980s that PBC patients are at increased risk for development of extrahepatic cancer, especially breast cancer.These findings could not be confirmed in more recent larger studies and finally no higher risk of developing extrahepatic cancer has been documented in these patients.

Developing an educational framework for the teaching of simulation within nurse education  [PDF]
Melanie Humphreys
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.34049

The use of simulations as a teaching and learning tool within health care has increasing importance; simulations are seen as the major teaching method for practicing and assessing developing skills, knowledge, attitudes and meaningful decision-making within the field of nursing. Certainly the utilisations of simulations feature widely within many aspects of health care; a greater understanding of the key conceptual notions will serve to benefit all of those engaged within their application. This literature review has enabled the construction of a conceptual model for the teaching of simulation and can serve to promote the continued positive development of simulations within education. Through a consistent and insightful approach to teaching, dynamic learning will be assured within this very important aspect of engaging the nursing student within the learning process.

The Seeking Solutions Approach: Solving Challenging Business Problems with Local Open Innovation
Christophe Deutsch
Technology Innovation Management Review , 2013,
Abstract: How can small and medium-sized enterprises try open innovation and increase their level of collaboration with local partners? This article describes a possible solution: the Seeking Solutions approach. The Seeking Solutions process consists of four steps: a call for problems, problem selection, problem broadcast, and a collaborative event. This approach has been successfully used for the Quebec Seeks Solutions events in 2010 and 2012 with concrete results and real impacts. By mixing open innovation and collaboration, the Seeking Solutions approach has introduced a new concept: local open innovation.
The Elevation to Area Relationship of Lake Behnke
Kaitlin Deutsch
Undergraduate Journal of Mathematical Modeling : One + Two , 2012, DOI: 10.5038/2326-3652.4.2.5
Abstract: The objective of this project was to determine the area-to-depth relationship in Lake Behnke, which acts as the principal stormwater drainage basin for the University of South Florida campus in Tampa, Florida. Data previously collected in a stormwater management study by Jeffery Earhart illustrated a linear correlation between the lake's area and depth; however, that study was conducted in 1998, and this present work serves to double check that correlation. We analyzed a bathymetric map of Lake Behnke that displayed several contour lines indicating depth and approximated the area inside each closed curve with a contour integral. The resulting relationship between area and elevation was determined to be more parabolic than linear.
Status and Future Prospects in Searches for New Interactions in Neutron and Nuclear Beta-decay, Muon- and Pion-decay
Jules Deutsch
Physics , 1999,
Abstract: The interest, the status and the perspectives of various experiments in neutron and nuclear beta-decay, muon-decay and pion-decays are discussed. The talk is segmented into a discussion of the decay-rates and of the energy-spectra and correlations. The impact on various scenarios of "new physics" is briefly mentioned; left-right symmetric models are discussed in more detail and the informations gained from the considered experiments is compared to those from other sources.
Return of the Ether: Conjecture That Can Explain Photon and Electron Two-Slit Interference
Sid Deutsch
Physics , 1998,
Abstract: The ether can "explain" certain questionable "quantum realities" in which single, isolated photons form a diffraction pattern in a two-slit apparatus; and, similarly, single, isolated electrons form a diffraction pattern in the equivalent of a two-slit apparatus. The notion that every large object, such as the earth, carries its own ether, is not considered.
Quantum Theory of Probability and Decisions
David Deutsch
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1098/rspa.1999.0443
Abstract: The probabilistic predictions of quantum theory are conventionally obtained from a special probabilistic axiom. But that is unnecessary because all the practical consequences of such predictions follow from the remaining, non-probabilistic, axioms of quantum theory, together with the non-probabilistic part of classical decision theory.
The Structure of the Multiverse
David Deutsch
Physics , 2001,
Abstract: The structure of the multiverse is determined by information flow.
Qubit Field Theory
David Deutsch
Physics , 2004,
Abstract: The canonical commutation relations of quantum field theory require all pairs of observables located in spacelike-separated regions to commute. In the theory as it is currently constituted, this implies that the information-carrying capacity of a finite volume of space is infinite. Yet Bekenstein's bound gives us strong reason to believe that it is finite. A class of quantum field theories is presented in which observables localised in spacelike-separated regions do not necessarily commute, but which nevertheless has no physical pathologies.
