HIV-Related Knowledge and Perceptions by Academic Major: Implications for University Interventions
Matthew Lee Smith,Lisa L. La Place,Mindy Menn,Kelly L. Wilson
Frontiers in Public Health , 2014, DOI: 10.3389/fpubh.2014.00018
Abstract: Most universities offer human sexuality courses, although they are not required for graduation. While students in health-related majors may receive sexuality education in formal settings, majority of college students never receive formal sexual health or HIV/AIDS-related education, which may lead to elevated engagement in high-risk sexual behaviors. This study examines perceived knowledge about HIV/AIDS, perceived risk, and perceived consequences among college students by two distinct classifications of academic majors. Data were collected from 510 college students. Binary and multinomial logistic regressions were performed to compare HIV-related covariates by academic major category. Limited differences were observed by science, technology, engineering, and mathematics categorization. Relative to health and kinesiology majors, those who self-reported being “completely knowledgeable” about HIV were less likely to be physical sciences, mathematics, engineering, and business (PMEB) (OR = 0.41, P = 0.047) or education, humanities, and social sciences majors (OR = 0.25, P = 0.004). PMEB majors were less likely to report behavioral factors as a risk for contracting HIV (OR = 0.86, P = 0.004) and perceived acquiring HIV would be more detrimental to their quality of life (OR = 2.14, P = 0.012), but less detrimental to their mental well-being (OR = 0.58, P = 0.042). Findings can inform college-wide campaigns and interventions to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and improve college health.

Memorial Candles: Beauty as Consolation
Mindy Weisel
American Studies Journal , 2011,
Abstract: Do we ever get used to the feelings of loss? Time supposedly heals all wounds. Does it really? Or do we take that time and take that loss and turn it into something else, something that takes the shape and the form of our loss. Is this perhaps the source of the deepest art? Is it the art that actually gives our lives meaning? There are clearly feelings that are beyond comprehension. It is these feelings that are put into the music, poetry, painting, photography, prose, and theater that enrich our lives, and that are addressed in this book. The women in “Daughters of Absence” all have one thing in common: as daughters of Holocaust survivors they have found a strong voice through their work. For these creative women, their work has been both life force and life saver.
Strategies for Involving Parents in School Communication and Application in a K-1 Special Education System  [PDF]

Creative Education (CE) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2017.86057
Abstract: This study aimed to determine practices that could improve communication and participation in special education classrooms with parents. Special education classrooms seem to have greater difficulty cultivating relationships with parents due to the complex nature of education. Improved communication has shown that it can have a positive effect on student achievement as well as communication between parents, teachers, and schools. The classroom was made up of all special education students that ranged in grades k-1, male/ female, and variation of intellectual disabilities. The school is located near a military base and situated in an area that has higher rates of poverty. Indirect methods of communication were utilized in this study; classroom newsletters, daily communication chart with weekly feedback, and a parent questionnaire. The action research showed that there was some improvement in perceptions of positive interactions as well as a steady rate of participation using indirect methods of communication. Indirect methods seemed to provide some improvements in communication between parents, teachers, and schools. It showed that most parents had an improved perception of the teacher and were mostly satisfied with the communication. Future research could look at other indirect methods of communication, direct forms of communication, or a combination of both.
Neonatal Isolation Stress Inhibits Pre-Weaning Weight Gain and Mild-Stressor Induced Locomotor Activity in Early Adolescent Male and Female Rats  [PDF]

Journal of Behavioral and Brain Science (JBBS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbbs.2015.57031
Abstract: The present study looked at the effects of neonatal isolation, an early life stress experience, in male and female early adolescent rats, an age which is underrepresented in the early stress literature. Four stress-sensitive indices were assessed: weight gain during the pre-weaning period, open field activity, and locomotor activity in response to two mild stressors: exposure to a novel environment, and a single IP saline injection. Rats in the neonatal isolation condition were removed from dam and littermates on postnatal days 2-9 in accord with the procedure used by Kehoe et al. (1995); behavioral testing occurred on PN25-PN30 during the early adolescent period. It was found that neonatally isolated pups weighed less than non-isolate controls on each of three measurement days (PN7, PN14, PN21) throughout the pre-weaning period. Further, neonatal isolation experience consistently reduced horizontal locomotor activity measured in the open field, in a novel environment, and following a single mild acute stressor. On some measures, behavior reflected greater impact of NI in males compared with NI females, suggesting that the effects of NI in early adolescent rats may be sexually dimorphic.
About uncertainties in practical salinity calculations

Ocean Science Discussions (OSD) , 2009,
Abstract: Salinity is a quantity computed, in the actual state of the art, from conductivity ratio measurements, knowing temperature and pressure at the time of the measurement and using the Practical Salinity Scale algorithm of 1978 (PSS-78) which gives practical salinity values S. The uncertainty expected on PSS-78 values is ±0.002, but nothing has ever been detailed about the method to work out this uncertainty, and the sources of errors to include in this calculation. Following a guide edited by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), this paper assess, by two independent methods, the uncertainties of salinity values obtained from a laboratory salinometer and Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) measurements after laboratory calibration of a conductivity cell. The results show that the part due to the PSS-78 relations fits is sometimes as much significant as the instruments one's. This is particularly the case with CTD measurements where correlations between the variables contribute to decrease largely the uncertainty on S, even when the expanded uncertainties on conductivity cells calibrations are largely up of 0.002 mS/cm. The relations given in this publication, and obtained with the normalized GUM method, allow a real analysis of the uncertainties sources and they can be used in a more general way, with instruments having different specifications.

Abstract: In the current state of the art, salinity is a quantity computed from conductivity ratio measurements, with temperature and pressure known at the time of the measurement, and using the Practical Salinity Scale algorithm of 1978 (PSS-78). This calculation gives practical salinity values S. The uncertainty expected in PSS-78 values is ±0.002, but no details have ever been given on the method used to work out this uncertainty, and the error sources to include in this calculation. Following a guide published by the Bureau International des Poids et Mesures (BIPM), using two independent methods, this paper assesses the uncertainties of salinity values obtained from a laboratory salinometer and Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) measurements after laboratory calibration of a conductivity cell. The results show that the part due to the PSS-78 relations fits is sometimes as significant as the instrument's. This is particularly the case with CTD measurements where correlations between variables contribute mainly to decreasing the uncertainty of S, even when expanded uncertainties of conductivity cell calibrations are for the most part in the order of 0.002 mS cm 1. The relations given here, and obtained with the normalized GUM method, allow a real analysis of the uncertainties' sources and they can be used in a more general way, with instruments having different specifications.

Abstract: study of monofocal intraocular lens (AcrySof ) in mini-monovision (MMV) and premium multifocal implantation of ReSTOR Original Research (6711) Total Article Views Authors: Ming Chen, Mindy Chen Published Date December 2009 Volume 2010:2 Pages 1 - 3 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OPTO.S7832 Ming Chen1, Mindy Chen2 1John A Burns School of Medicine, University of Hawaii, USA; 2University of California, Irvine, USA Abstract: We compared the AcrySof monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) in mini-monovision (MMV) (n = 20) with the ReSTOR multifocal IOL (n = 20) for glasses independence after cataract surgery. The ReSTOR IOL showed a significantly higher proportion of postoperative independence from glasses. The MMV formula monofocal AcrySof recipients with the same pre-op selection criteria as the ReSTOR achieved 20/30 and J3 without glasses post cataract surgery. AcrySof IOL can be a good alternative for those patients who cannot afford ReSTOR IOL and yet desire some degree of independence from glasses.

Abstract: mparison of CDE data in phacoemulsification between an open hospital-based ambulatory surgical center and a free-standing ambulatory surgical center Original Research (3802) Total Article Views Authors: Ming Chen, Mindy Chen Published Date November 2010 Volume 2010:4 Pages 1287 - 1289 DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.2147/OPTH.S15076 Ming Chen1, Mindy Chen2 1University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI, USA; 2University of California, Irvine, CA, USA Abstract: Mean CDE (cumulative dissipated energy) values were compared for an open hospital-based surgical center and a free-standing surgical center. The same model of phacoemulsifier (Alcon Infiniti Ozil) was used. Mean CDE values showed that surgeons (individual private practice) at the free-standing surgical center were more efficient than surgeons (individual private practice) at the open hospital-based surgical center (mean CDE at the hospital-based surgical center 18.96 seconds [SD = 12.51]; mean CDE at the free-standing surgical center 13.2 seconds [SD = 9.5]). CDE can be used to monitor the efficiency of a cataract surgeon and surgical center in phacoemulsification. The CDE value may be used by institutions as one of the indicators for quality control and audit in phacoemulsification.
