Yoga and positive body image: A test of the Embodiment Model.

The study aimed to test the Embodiment Model of Positive Body Image (Menzel & Levine, 2011) within the context of yoga. Participants were 193 yoga practitioners (124 Iyengar, 69 Bikram) and 127 university students (non-yoga participants) from Adelaide, South Australia. Participants completed questionnaire measures of positive body image, embodiment, self-objectification, and desire for thinness. Results showed yoga practitioners scored higher on positive body image and embodiment, and lower on self-objectif...

Years of Life Lost due to Premature Mortality in a Province with the Shortest Life Expectancy in Poland.

The aim of the study was to evaluate years of life lost for citizens of the Lodz Province, which is characterized by the lowest life expectancy in Poland, and to identify current trends in this area according to the most common causes of death.

Young children's ability to report on past, future and hypothetical pain states: a cognitive developmental perspective.

Children are at times asked by clinicians or researchers to rate their pain associated with past, future or hypothetical experiences. However, little consideration is typically given to the cognitive-developmental requirements of such pain reports. Consequently, these pain assessment tasks may exceed the abilities of some children, potentially resulting in biased or random responses. This could lead to the over- or under-treatment of children's pain. This review provides an overview of factors, and specific...

Young children's behavioral and emotional responses to different social norm violations.

From an early age, children can talk meaningfully about differences between moral and conventional norms. But does their understanding of these differences manifest itself in their actual behavioral and emotional reactions to norm violations? And do children discriminate between norm violations that affect either themselves or a third party? Two studies (N=224) were conducted in which children observed conventional game rule violations and moral transgressions that either disadvantaged themselves directly o...

You can lead a horse to water … what Self-Determination Theory can contribute to our understanding of clinical policy implementation.

There has been increasing reliance on policy directives as instruments for shaping clinical practice in health care, despite it being widely recognized that there is a significant translation gap between clinical policy and its implementation. Self-Determination Theory, a widely researched and empirically validated theory of human needs' fulfilment and motivation, offers a potentially valuable theoretical framework for understanding not only why the current policy environment has not led to the anticipated ...

Yellow fever in Africa.

YsbA and LytST are essential for pyruvate utilization in Bacillus subtilis.

The genome of Bacillus subtilis encodes homologues of the Cid/Lrg network. In other bacterial species, this network consists of holin- and antiholin-like proteins that regulate cell death by controlling murein hydrolase activity. The YsbA protein of B. subtilis is currently annotated as a putative antiholin-like protein that possibly impedes cell death, whereas YwbH is thought to act as holin-like protein. However, the actual functions of YsbA and YwbH in B. subtilis have never been characterized. Therefore...

Yellow Fever Virus: a easy to ignore potential threat in China.

Yoga: Potential Benefits for Persons Who Stutter.

Yoga has been demonstrated to modulate autonomic nervous system activity, decreasing anxiety and stress, and improving quality of life. This preliminary study sought to examine the use of yogic techniques on persons who stutter given the interaction between physiological arousal/anxiety and stuttering that current multifactorial models of stuttering propose. Four participants (M = 52 yr, SD = 10; 2 female, 2 male), recruited from local stuttering support groups in the greater Philadelphia communit...

Yolk-shell Sn@C Eggette-like Nanostructure: Application in Lithium-ion and Sodium-ion Batteries.

Yolk-shell carbon encapsulated tin (Sn@C) eggette-like compounds (SCE) have been synthesized by a facile method. The SCE structures consist of tin cores covered by carbon membrane networks with extra voids between the carbon shell and tin cores. The novel nanoarchitectures exhibit high electrochemical performance in both lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) and sodium-ion batteries (SIBs). As anodes for LIBs, the SCE electrodes exhibit a specific capacity of ~850 mAh g-1 at 0.1 C (100 mA g-1), and high rate capabil...

Yield and Viability of Human Limbal Stem Cells From Fresh and Stored Tissue.

We compared cell number, putative stem cell markers, and clonogenic ability in fresh uncultured human limbal epithelial cells to that obtained from stored organ-cultured tissue.

Young children infer preferences from a single action, but not if it is constrained.

Inferring others' preferences is socially important and useful. We investigated whether children infer preferences from the minimal information provided by an agent's single action, and whether they avoid inferring preference when the action is constrained. In three experiments, children saw vignettes in which an agent took a worse toy instead of a better one. Experiment 1 shows that this single action influences how young children infer preferences. Children aged three and four were more likely to infer th...

Yellow Fever Virus: Cause for Concern or Alarm?

Yellow Fever Remains a Potential Threat to Public Health.

Yellow fever (YF) remains a serious public health threat in endemic countries. The recent re-emergence in Africa, initiating in Angola and spreading to Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda, with imported cases in China and Kenya is of concern. There is such a shortage of YF vaccine in the world that the World Health Organization has proposed the use of reduced doses (1/5) during emergencies. In this short communication, we discuss these and other problems including the risk of spread of YF to areas free ...

Young children's preference for unique owned objects.

An important aspect of human thought is the value we place on unique individuals. Adults place higher value on authentic works of art than exact replicas, and young children at times value their original possessions over exact duplicates. What is the scope of this preference in early childhood, and when do children understand its subjective nature? On a series of trials, we asked three-year-olds (N=36) to choose between two toys for either themselves or the researcher: an old (visibly used) toy vs. a new (m...

YCRD: Yeast Combinatorial Regulation Database.

In eukaryotes, the precise transcriptional control of gene expression is typically achieved through combinatorial regulation using cooperative transcription factors (TFs). Therefore, a database which provides regulatory associations between cooperative TFs and their target genes is helpful for biologists to study the molecular mechanisms of transcriptional regulation of gene expression. Because there is no such kind of databases in the public domain, this prompts us to construct a database, called Yeast Com...

Youth Energy Expenditure During Common Free-Living Activities and Treadmill Walking.

Energy expenditure (EE) estimates for a broad age range of youth performing a variety of activities are needed.

Year in Review 2015: Pediatric ARDS.

Led by the work of the Pediatric Acute Lung Injury Consensus Conference, much was published on the topic of pediatric ARDS in 2015. Although the availability of definitive data to the pediatric practitioner for the management of infants and children with pediatric ARDS continues to lag behind that for the adult clinician, 2015 augmented the available medical literature with more information than had been seen for years. This article will review key pediatric ARDS publications with a focus on the Pediatric A...

Year in Review 2015: Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a modified form of cardiopulmonary bypass. Although early trials were plagued by severe bleeding and high rates of death, subsequent experience with neonates found good survival, and ECMO became an important tool in the care of critically ill infants with respiratory failure. Since the 1980s, expansion to other groups (children, patients with cardiac disease, etc) followed as experience was obtained. Today, there is a rapid growth of ECMO, especially in the adul...
