Social Networks and Physical Activity in Senior Housing: A Pilot Feasibility Study.

Only 16% of people aged >65 years engage in recommended levels of physical activity, putting a vast majority at risk for multiple chronic conditions including heart disease. Physical activity is even lower among older adults with fewer economic resources. Research is needed to develop context-specific approaches to pair with physical activity interventions to increase effectiveness. In this pilot study, we examine social ties and physical activity levels of older adults living in a US Department of Housing ...

Rereading Frankenstein: What If Victor Frankenstein Had Actually Been Evil?

As we reread Mary Shelley's Frankenstein at two hundred years, it is evident that Victor Frankenstein is both a mad scientist (fevered, obsessive) and a bad scientist (secretive, hubristic, irresponsible). He's also not a very nice person. He's a narcissist, a liar, and a bad "parent." But he is not genuinely evil. And yet when we reimagine him as evil-as an evil scientist and as an evil person-we can learn some important lessons about science and technology, our contemporary society, and ourselves.

We discuss how to establish and nurture successful scientist-advocate relationships throughout the research process. We review opportunities ...

20 Years in the world of work: A study of (nonstandard) occupational trajectories and health.

Longitudinal research emphasizes that nonstandard (i.e., temporary contracts, part-time and multiple jobs) and discontinuous occupational trajectories (i.e., intermittent unemployment or inactivity) are associated with lower levels of mental health. A branch of this research highlights, over many years of observation the importance of the time of exposure to nonstandard occupational trajectories as a social determinant of health. However, the timing of the observed period and the multidimensionality of nons...

Perceptions of research integrity climate differ between academic ranks and disciplinary fields: Results from a survey among academic researchers in Amsterdam.

Breaches of research integrity have shocked the academic community. Initially explanations were sought at the level of individual researchers but over time increased recognition emerged of the important role that the research integrity climate may play in influencing researchers' (mis)behavior. In this study we aim to assess whether researchers from different academic ranks and disciplinary fields experience the research integrity climate differently. We sent an online questionnaire to academic researchers ...

Behavior analysts in the war on poverty: Developing an operant antipoverty program.

Poverty is associated with poor health and affects many United States residents. The therapeutic workplace, an operant intervention designed to treat unemployed adults with histories of drug addiction, could form the basis for an effective antipoverty program. Under the therapeutic workplace, participants receive pay for work. To promote drug abstinence or medication adherence, participants must provide drug-free urine samples or take scheduled doses of medication, respectively, to maintain maximum pay. The...

Crafting your scientist brand.

That a scientist might shape and cultivate a personal brand is a relatively new concept but one that is finding increasing acceptance in this new age of rapid communications and social media. A key driver is the abrupt rise in well-funded and organized antiscience movements, especially in North America and Europe, such that society now benefits from scientists with strong personal brands and public personas who are willing to engage general audiences. In this sense, branding itself can advance science, the ...

Universal Screening for Social Needs in a Primary Care Clinic: A Quality Improvement Approach Using the Your Current Life Situation Survey.

Kaiser Permanente's Care Management Institute created a screening tool, Your Current Life Situation (YCLS), which primarily is used to identify social needs for populations at risk of high health care utilization.

Improving Teacher Job Satisfaction: The Roles of Social Capital, Teacher Efficacy, and Support.

In this study, we examine how social capital, teacher efficacy, and organizational support increase teacher job satisfaction. Research suggests that teachers worldwide are exceedingly dissatisfied with their jobs and have significantly higher levels of turnover than their counterparts in other professions. We investigate this phenomenon using a sample of 122 elementary school teachers. We found that teachers' centrality position, or each teacher's relationship with every other teacher, in their school's tru...

The clinician-scientist track: an approach addressing Australia's need for a pathway to train its future clinical academic workforce.

Clinician-scientist training represents the epitome of preparation for biomedical scientific discovery. The significance of, and need for, clinician-scientists is universally recognised as essential to progress medical research across what is regarded as the 'translational gap'. Despite a rich history of cutting-edge biomedical research, Australia has no infrastructure or career pathway for training clinician-scientists.

Analyzing College Students' Social Media Communication Apprehension.

Research has shown that college students are heavy users of social media. Yet, very little has looked at the connection between college students' social media use and communication apprehension (CA). Due to the shortage of research concerning CA and social media, this study aims to test the relationship between social media CA and introversion in relationship to social media use and social media addiction. To test these relationships, 396 undergraduate students were surveyed. The survey consisted of instrum...

The Integration of Clinical and Research Training: How and Why MD-PhD Programs Work.

For over 60 years, MD-PhD programs have provided integrated clinical and research training in order to produce graduates primed for physician-scientist careers. Yet the nature of this integrated training is poorly characterized, with no program theory of integrated MD-PhD training to guide program development or evaluation. The authors address this gap by proposing a program theory of integrated MD-PhD training applying constructs from cognitive psychology and medical education. The authors argue that integ...

The health of Canadians depends on effective leadership among health care providers to facilitate the translation of new health discoveries into clinical practice. Clinician-scientists play an important role in bridging the gap between research and clinical practice, and require effective leadership skills to advance clinical practice successfully. To accelerate the leadership development in clinician scientist trainees, with the aim of developing strong leaders in administration and health advocacy, the Le...

Decoding Sanger Sequencing Chromatograms from CRISPR-Induced Mutations.

In many diploid organisms, the majority mutations induced by clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)-mediated genome editing are non- chimeric, including biallelic, homozygous, and heterozygous mutations. Direct Sanger sequencing of the PCR amplicons containing non-homozygous mutations superimposes sequencing chromatograms, displaying overlapping peaks beginning from the mutation sites. In this chapter we describe the degenerate sequence decoding (DSD) strategy and its automatic w...

A sociocognitive approach to social problem solving in patients with traumatic brain injury: a pilot study.

Patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) have difficulty dealing with the social world and may display inappropriate social behavior that negatively affects their social and occupational rehabilitation. This difficulty may be explained by a social problem-solving (SPS) impairment, but little is yet known about the cognitive processes involved in the ability to solve social problems. Several publications have demonstrated that executive functions are related to social problem solving, but the role of socia...

Single Parents in Germany: The Interrelation Between Social Support and Mental Health.
