The Poor Little Rich District: The Effects of Suburbanization on a Rural School and Community
Howley, A.,Carnes, M.,Eldridge, A.,Huber, D.
Journal of Research in Rural Education , 2005,
Abstract: Contextualized in relationship to other case studies about rural districts that have experienced population growth and decline as well as in relationship to the small sociological literature on “boom towns,” this study considered the dynamics that seem to be interfering with one previously rural and now suburbanizing district’s ability to address an academic mission. The research followed a structured case study protocol, with researchers gathering data from interviews with 31 members of the school community, including board members, educators, parents, and nonparent community members. In addition, the researchers reviewed relevant documentary and archival evidence. Analysis of data revealed three themes. The rst theme was called “identity crisis” because it characterized a serious tension between district identity grounded in historical circumstances and an emerging new identity re ective of current circumstances. This tension promoted signi cant ambiguity with respect to district goals as well as the practices undertaken to realize goals. A second theme, therefore, was named “goal ambiguity.” A nal theme called “ambiguities in resource allocation” focused on the dif culties that district leadership faced in making judgments about how best to use limited resources. Because the district was dealing with ambiguous goals and the inconsistencies in practice resulting from goal ambiguity, decisions about resource allocation seemed to be made without much attention to long-range or strategic plans.
Utilizing simulation curriculum to decentralize mental health concepts  [PDF]
D. M. H. Michelle Beckford
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.32031

The International Society of Psychiatric Nurses as well as The American Psychiatric Nurses Association called for decentralization of psychiatric concepts in undergraduate nursing education. The author developed a series of simulation scenarios to address therapeutic communication and psychosocial needs in a variety of patient care settings. In terms of holistic care, psychological well-being is relevant to all realms of nursing practice. Mental health assessment and intervention need to be included in all areas of an undergraduate-nursing curriculum. The purpose of this project was to create a BSN curriculum that reflects the mental health needs of patients not only in acute care psychiatric facilities but also in medical-surgical disciplines, maternity units, and community settings. The curriculum is designed to also cover mental health throughout the lifespan-from infancy to end of life. A goal was to develop educational techniques, which translate into safe practice. A series of five simulations have been created with additional scenarios to be established in the following academic year. Topics include: alcohol withdrawal, end of life care, post-traumatic stress disorder, post-partum depression, serotonin syndrome, benzodiazepine over dose, elder abuse, depression in military veterans, and geriatric depression. All incorporate QSEN competencies [1]. The overall learning objectives are for undergraduate nursing students to initiate and implement an appropriate mental status assessment using therapeutic communication, and also to provide safe care by identifying risk factors and using clinical decision making to establish requisite nursing interventions. The methodology included relevant documentation through the use of appropriate assessment tools. Learning objectives were assessed through pre-simulation and post-simulation ten-question inventory and anecdotal feedback. QSEN competencies were utilized in creating scenarios as well as pre and post testing. Students voiced an ability to connect the didactic material to their clinical experiences following simulation.

Deconstructing the Glass Ceiling  [PDF]

Sociology Mind (SM) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2012.21011
Abstract: Aims: There is a large body of evidence-based research illustrating the challenges faced by women who strive in male-typed careers. The purpose of this paper is to outline and integrate a review of the relevant social psychology research into a model of women’s leadership. Proposed Conceptual Argument: As leadership is stereotypically a masculine dimension, women who emulate agentic characteristics will rise into leadership. However, empirical evidence overwhelmingly illustrates the consequences to agentic women whose competence is simultaneously expected and minimized. Findings/Conclusions: This model raises awareness of complex issues in research for women including: the “promotion of ‘male’ females”, “success does not equal competence”, “agentic women sustain reactive opposition”, “the process of self-selection”, “stereotypic threat”, and “equality equals greed”. Because of the ubiquity of these cognitive distortions, awareness may mitigate antagonism and conflict to propel women into leadership roles.
Investigation of the Relationship between Resilience, Mindfulness, and Academic Self-Efficacy  [PDF]
Michelle D. Keye, Aileen M. Pidgeon
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2013.16001
Abstract: Resilience, mindfulness, and academic self-efficacy are topics of interests to psychologists; however, little is known about the relationships among the three. The primary purpose of this research was to explore the role of mindfulness and academic self-efficacy in predicting resilience among university students. 141 participants (m = 39, f = 102) completed The Freiburg Mindfulness Inventory, The Beliefs in Educational Success Test, and The Connor Davidson Resilience Scale. The results found that in the regression models, mindfulness and academic self-efficacy were significant predictors of resilience. This finding suggests that mindfulness and academic self-efficacy have a significant impact on resilience.
Compilation and Analysis of Atherosclerosis Gene Expression Data  [PDF]
Michelle L. Booze, Kathleen M. Eyster
Advances in Biological Chemistry (ABC) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/abc.2015.52011
Abstract: The objective of this project was to search for consensus in differential gene expression data and in regulation of differentially expressed genes among DNA microarray studies of atherosclerotic vessels and plaque. Seventeen DNA microarray studies of atherosclerosis were analyzed. Only 19 genes were found to be differentially expressed in 3 or more of the studies. The nineteen genes belong to classic gene ontologies known to be involved in atherosclerosis: immunity and defense, metabolism, proteases, receptors, and signal transduction. Four bioinformatics programs (TRED, rVISTA, JASPAR, and Ariadne Pathways) were used to further analyze the promoter regions and common upstream regulators of the 19 genes. Twelve of the genes shared nine common upstream regulators, many of them known to affect atherosclerosis, and one possible new pathway was identified that may be involved in this disease.
Prolonged Action Potential and After depolarizations Are Not due to Changes in Potassium Currents in NOS3 Knockout Ventricular Myocytes

Journal of Signal Transduction , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/645721
Abstract: Ventricular myocytes deficient in endothelial nitric oxide synthase (NOS3−/−) exhibit prolonged action potential (AP) duration and enhanced spontaneous activity (early and delayed afterdepolarizations) during β-adrenergic (β-AR) stimulation. Studies have shown that nitric oxide is able to regulate various K

Abstract: The cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) basic is necessary to initiate it as rapidly as possible, its main target is to secure to the oxygenation of emergencia for the protection of the central nervous system and other vital organs. The maneuvers of basic resuscitation are easy to realise, any person can learn them and she does not need specific equipment.The sanitary professionals we are convinced of the prevention through the education and the basic formation of the population before situations critics. Starting off of these premises, our work group considers that the diffusion and education of the knowledge and abilities of the basic CPR between the general population are one of the main methods to improve the rates of survival and to diminish sequels.Our course of CPR is theoretical-practical is directed to parents of children with cardiac, pulmonary, neurological problems at the risk of suffering episodes of vital commitment. Its purpose is that the students secure to resuscitation abilities and action criteria. The theoretical part has as objectives to facilitate the decision making and the understanding of the maneuvers. The practical part consists of the sequential repetition of the maneuvers to practice the coordination and the abilities before diverse situations that can be found the parents.
Communicating curriculum reform to students: Advice in hindsight.....

Abstract: A survey of Years 1–5 students of the last intake into the traditional curriculum was undertaken a few months prior to the implementation of the new programme.Students were generally well informed about the impending change, having heard about it from fellow students and staff. The more senior the students, the less the perceived impact of the reform. Although most of what students had heard was correct, some, however, had misconceptions that were generally extreme views (e.g. all self-directed learning; no Anatomy) about the new programme. Others expressed valid concerns (e.g. underpreparedness of students from disadvantaged schools; overcrowding in hospitals).Advice offered to institutions considering curriculum reform include using various methods to inform internal and external affected parties, ensuring that the student representative body and staff is well informed, reiterating the need for the change, confirming that the new programme meets recognised standards and that the students most affected are reassured about their future studies.Change is an inevitable part of society. While there will always be those welcoming it, viewing change as progressive and probably long overdue, there will be the opponents, who believe that there is nothing wrong with the old system. Curriculum restructuring and reform is no exception, with faculty staff and students either embracing or resisting the need to change. Reform often involves adopting a new philosophy. Those entrenched in the old system may find it difficult to adapt, particularly if their power and authority is challenged [1,2]. Students are probably no different from staff in the manner in which they accept the change. As the products of the restructuring process, however, they are directly affected by the reform, as they need to be 'marketable' in society, and in the case of medical training, they need to be educated to deliver an effective health care service. Implementing successful curriculum reform thus inv
