International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health , 2012, DOI: 10.3390/ijerph9103740
Abstract: Little is known about the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and work-related stress and its risk factors among white-collar businessmen and management workers that migrate to high-income developing countries. A structural questionnaire survey was administered to 156 white-collar Taiwanese management personnel of representative companies of their industries in Taiwan, who were assigned long-term job positions in China. Questionnaire content included demographics and medical history, self-reported physical and mental conditions, personal lifestyle and behavior, Beck Depression Inventory, and information on HRQoL. White-collar migrant workers reported a high prevalence of alcohol consumption (72.4%) and perceived work-related stress (62.2%), and a lower prevalence of regular exercise (12.2%). Workers with higher levels of perceived work-related stress reported more alcohol consumption, a history of hyperlipidemia, and a higher prevalence of self-reported neck pain, poor sleep, and mild/moderate/severe depression. In our primary multivariate risk model to determine lifestyle and work-related stress variables and HRQoL, perceived work-related stress and a feeling of depression negatively impacted both the Physical Component Summary (PCS) and Mental Component Summary (MCS) scores of the SF-36 health survey. Hyperlipidemia and self-reported neck pain were associated with significantly lower PCS scores, whereas cardiovascular disease, gastric ulcer, and poor sleep were associated with statistically lower MCS scores. White-collar migrant workers are generally younger with high socioeconomic status. Perceived work-related stress and a feeling of depression indirectly affect HRQoL. Hyperlipidemia, self-reported neck pain, cardiovascular disease, gastric ulcer, and poor sleep also had a significant negative impact on HRQoL.

Abstract: In Taiwan, in corresponding to the policy of reducing CO2 emission, reforming current energy structure, and saving energy, the National Energy Program (NEP)-Smart Grid General Project Phase 1 was implemented. The objectives of this project are meant to enhance the robustness of the power grid, reduce greenhouse gas emission, increase the penetration rate of renewable energy and develop smart grid industry in Taiwan. This study will introduce the positioning of the Smart Grid General Project among overall smart grid development, the results of Phase 1, the smart grid technology commercialization process of Phase 2, and the promotion model with collaboration between industry, universities and research units.

Abstract: 对PVD沉积Pb1-xGexTe薄膜研究发现Pb1-xGexTe是一种高性能的红外材料,在3-25μm光谱范围具有较好的透光性能,室温下的折射率为4.8-5.6薄膜的光学性质,包括透射率、色散关系以及折射率的温度系数dn/dT,与材料中组分x、环境温度和薄膜的沉积工艺条件有密切关系,适当地改变组分和工艺条件,可以使薄膜的折射率温度系数dn/dT从负变到零并转为正,这对于制备高温度稳定性的红外光学薄膜器件具有重要的意义。

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopy , 2011, DOI: 10.1155/2011/468237
Abstract: Diagnosis of bronchogenic cysts is possible with computed tomography, but half of all cases present as soft tissue densities. Two such cases are highlighted where asymptomatic bronchogenic cysts that presented as soft tissue masses were evaluated by endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS). After studying the ultrasound image characteristics, the diagnosis was confirmed using EBUS-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). The first case had ultrasound findings of an anechoic collection, and the aspirate was serous with negative microbiologic cultures. The second was an echogenic collection within a hyperechoic wall. Needle aspirate was purulent and cultured Haemophilus influenza. The diagnosis of a bronchogenic cyst complicated by infection was made, and the lesion was surgically resected. This potential for EBUS in the diagnosis of bronchogenic cysts and in identifying complications such as infection should be considered in the management of such cases. 1. Introduction Bronchogenic cysts are ventral foregut duplication cysts that arise from aberrant embryonic development. They are typically located near the large airways just posterior to the carina. Although many are asymptomatic and discovered incidentally, complications such as infection, airway obstruction, fistulation, vascular compression, and malignant transformation have been reported [1]. Bronchogenic cysts are lined with cartilage and pseudostratified columnar epithelium. Noninvasive diagnosis is possible with computed tomography (CT) using typical characteristics of a round, well-circumscribed, unilocular mass [1]. Approximately half of the cysts are homogeneous with a near water density (0–20 Hounsfield Units) that reflects their serous nature. The remainder have attenuation values of soft tissue because of viscid mucoid contents making them indistinguishable from neoplasms [2]. Whilst the additional use of magnetic resonance may help to further characterize these lesions, they can still be confused for malignancies with central necrosis. An exploratory thoracoscopy or thoracotomy may then be necessary to confirm the diagnosis [3]. We present two cases where endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) was performed on patients with asymptomatic bronchogenic cysts. After studying the ultrasonographic images, transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) was performed at the same sitting to confirm the diagnosis. Both were outpatient procedures that were completed under local anesthesia and conscious sedation without any complications. The EBUS ultrasound images correlated with TBNA aspirate findings and led

Abstract: IntroductionStudies show that the recommendations of a primary care physician for colorectal cancer screening may be one important influence on an individual’s use of screening. However, another possible influence, the effect of regional differences in physicians’ beliefs and recommendations on screening use, has not been assessed.MethodsWe linked data from the National Health Interview Survey on the use of colorectal cancer screening by respondents aged 50 years or older, by hospital-referral region, with data from the Survey of Colorectal Cancer Screening Practices on the colorectal cancer screening recommendations of primary care physicians, by region. Our principal independent variables were the proportion of physicians in a region who recommended screening at age 50 and continuing screening at the recommended frequency.Results On average, 53.3% of physicians in a region correctly recommended initiating colorectal cancer screening, and 64.8% advised screening at the recommended frequency. Of adults who lived in regions where less than 30% of physicians correctly recommended initiating screening, 47.3% had been screened, in contrast to 54.8% in areas where 70% or more of physicians made correct recommendations. Seventy-one percent of respondents living in regions where less than 30% of physicians advised screening at the recommended frequency were current on screening, in contrast to 79.9% of respondents living in regions where 70% or more of physicians made this recommendation. These differences were statistically significant after adjustment for individual characteristics.ConclusionStrategies to improve colorectal cancer screening recommendations of primary care physicians may improve the use of screening for millions of Americans.

Abstract: This paper reports the ecological effects of the joint pollution of Cd,Cu,Zn,Pb in soil on spring wheat and rice.The results show that when the joint concentration of Cd,Pb,Cu,Zn in the soil reaches a certain level,the growth of the crops will be inhibited and the yields reduced with the higher the concentration the lower the yields.The content of the four elements in the crops is also increased when the concentration of those four elements in soil increased.The results suggest that the joint pollution is different from single contamintor pollution,because of the complex action mechanism among the joint elements.

Abstract: 对6个不同灌水处理的冬小麦测定其冠气温差,计算水分胁迫指数,并建立水分胁迫指数与冬小麦产量之间的关系结果表明,冠气温差与土壤含水量有良好的相关关系,冠气温差由正值变为负值相对应的1m土层土壤含水量为田间持水量的60%左右,可作为灌水的下限指标。对充分供水的冬小麦,中午时段随大气饱和水汽压差的增加,冠气温差的负值越大,具有良好的线性关系。据此建立了充分供水条件下冠气温差与饱和水汽压差的关系方程,作为基线方程,计算不同灌水处理的冬小麦旺盛生长期间水分胁迫指数(CWSI)。水分胁迫指数与最终作物经济产量的关系是一非线性关系,随水分胁迫指数的减少而产量增加,但当水分胁迫指数减少到一定程度时产量达到最大,这时水分胁迫指数若再减少,产量反而降低。结果显示平均水分胁迫指数在0.1-0.2左右,是冬小麦最优产量所允许的水分供应状态。
