Summary of "From "Step Away" to "Stand Down": Tailoring a Smartphone App for Self-Management of Hazardous Drinking for Veterans."

US military veterans who screen positive for hazardous drinking during primary care visits may benefit from a mobile app. Step Away is an evidence-based mobile intervention system for the self-management of hazardous drinking. However, Step Away was not designed for veterans, and differences between veterans and civilians could limit the reach and effectiveness of the app with this population.

A Smartphone-only Pulse Transit Time Monitor Based on Cardio-mechanical and Photoplethysmography Modalities.

This paper reports a system for monitoring pulse transit time (PTT). Using an Android smartphone and a customized sensing circuit, the system collects seismo-cardiogram (SCG), gyro-cardiogram (GCG), a...

Characterizing Two Cytochrome P450s in Tiacumicin Biosynthesis Reveals Reaction Timing for Tailoring Modifications.

Functions of the tailoring enzymes for the biosynthesis of tiacumicin B () have been previously determined. However, the reaction timing remains elusive. Herein, we report the biochemical characteriz...

Quantifying sit-to-stand and stand-to-sit transitions in free-living environments using the activPAL thigh-worn activity monitor.

Standing up, sitting down and walking require considerable effort and coordination, which are crucial indicators to rehabilitation (e.g. stroke), and in older populations may indicate the onset of fra...

Longitudinal Effects of Excessive Smartphone Use on Stress and Loneliness: The Moderating Role of Self-Disclosure.

The present study investigates how excessive smartphone use predicts users' stress and loneliness while taking the moderating role of online self-disclosure into account. We conducted a two-wave panel...

Smartphone use and effects on tear film, blinking and binocular vision.

Smartphone use is now ubiquitous and is associated with a range of ocular and visual symptoms. However, little is known about the aetiology of the symptoms which accompany smartphone use and the relat...

Slender, threadlike family of ALGAE, in the order Charales, that are closely related to PLANTS. They differ from GREEN ALGAE in that they grow upright with branches off a central stand.

3'-Phosphoadenosine-5'-phosphosulfate. Key intermediate in the formation by living cells of sulfate esters of phenols, alcohols, steroids, sulfated polysaccharides, and simple esters, such as choline sulfate. It is formed from sulfate ion and ATP in a two-step process. This compound also is an important step in the process of sulfur fixation in plants and microorganisms.

Gram-negative bacterial secretion systems which translocate effectors in a single step across the inner and outer membranes. The one-step secretion is carried out by a channel that passes from the CYTOPLASM, through the inner membrane, PERIPLASMIC SPACE, and outer membrane, to the EXTRACELLULAR SPACE. The specificity of type I secretions systems are determined by the specificity of the three subcomponents forming the channel - an ATP transporter (ATP-BINDING CASSETTE TRANSPORTERS); a membrane fusion protein (MEMBRANE FUSION PROTEINS); and an outer membrane protein (BACTERIAL OUTER MEMBRANE PROTEINS.)
