Shallow foundation is a common foundation type that is usually used for small to medium size structures. The bearing ability and the failure mechanism of shallow foundation are the fundamental concerns for geotechnical engineers, and the demand for new insights into the relevant issue is still increasing. This paper presents an acoustic emission (AE) characterization of the failure process of shallow foundation, with the aim of revealing the fundamental information on AE signals associated with shallow foun...
Foundation species define ecosystems, control the biological diversity of associated species, modulate critical ecosystem processes, and often have important cultural values and resonance. This review summarizes current understanding of the characteristics and traits of foundation species and how to distinguish them from other "important" species in ecological systems (e.g., keystone, dominant, and core species); illustrates how analysis of the structure and function of ecological networks can be improved a...
The United Kingdom is currently facing crisis due to a shortage of radiology consultants despite ever-increasing demand for medical imaging. The specifics of how best to teach radiology has generated increasing interest. This study aims to determine whether musculoskeletal (MSK) radiology teaching at the University of Nottingham (UoN) Medical School is perceived to be satisfactory by medical students, Foundation-Year doctors, and senior medical professionals in preparing students for the demands working as ...
Junior doctors have the highest rates of prescribing errors, yet no study has set out to understand the differences between completely novice prescribers (Foundation year one (FY1) doctors) and those who have gained some experience (Foundation year two (FY2) doctors). The objective of this study was to uncover the causes of prescribing errors made by FY2 doctors and compare them with previously collected data of the causes of errors made by FY1 doctors.
Table 2 of the original article was incorrect. The correct table is shown below.

Food webs are an integral part of every ecosystem on the planet, yet understanding the mechanisms shaping these complex networks remains a major challenge. Recently, several studies suggested that non-trophic species interactions such as habitat modification and mutualisms can be important determinants of food web structure. However, it remains unclear whether these findings generalize across ecosystems, and whether non-trophic interactions affect food webs randomly, or affect specific trophic levels or fun...
Chronic hyponatremia may contribute to decreased bone density. We studied 341,003 men and women who underwent DXA testing and observed that individuals with chronic hyponatremia (sodium
Early PINP changes correlate with 18-month lumbar spine BMD changes and the correlation was greater with abaloparatide versus teriparatide. The uncoupling index was similar between the two agents.
Motivated by the increasing number of older people-many with chronic illnesses-and the lack of support for them, the John A. Hartford Foundation (JAHF) made improving the care of older adults one of its two priorities in 1983 and its sole priority in 1994. To accomplish this, the foundation adopted a two-part strategy: first, create a field of professionals capable of caring for an aging population, and second, test models of care for older adults. The JAHF steadfastly pursued that strategy until 2013, when...
Correction to: Long-term safety and clinical performance of kyphoplasty and SpineJack® procedures in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures: a pilot, monocentric, investigator-initiated study.
The author list was incomplete. The complete list of authors is the following: D. Noriega, F. Rodrίguez-Monsalve, R. Ramajo, I.Sánchez-Lite, B. Toribio, F. Ardura. The corresponding author regrets sincerely this error. The original article got update.
In recent years, there has been a decline in the number of applications per ST3 post for ENT. The majority of medical students and foundation doctors have a limited exposure to ENT during undergraduate medical training. This is a common issue in smaller surgical specialties, and is acknowledged as one factor deterring students from surgical careers. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
Systemic mastocytosis is a clonal disease of the mast cell progenitors of the bone marrow. The clinical picture varies from asymptomatic (indolent) to highly aggressive (mast cell leukemia). Up to one-third of patients with SM have osteoporosis and fractures. The following is an analysis of the case of a young patient with multiple fractures as the first manifestation of SM.
The article Were VCF patients at higher risk of mortality following the 2009 publication of the vertebroplasty "sham" trials?, written by K. L. Ong, D. P. Beall, M. Frohbergh, E. Lau, and J. A. Hirsch was originally published electronically on the publisher's internet portal.
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a disease causing bone fragility; however, it potentially affects all organs with a high content of collagen, including ears, teeth, and eyes. The study is cross-sectional and compares non-skeletal characteristics in adults with OI that clinicians should be aware of when caring for patients with OI.
Over the four years to 30 June, 2017 the McGrath Foundation's Second Federal Government Breast Care Nurse (BCN) Initiative funded 57 McGrath BCNs (MBCNs) to deliver better continuity of care and provide specialized support to those diagnosed with and undergoing treatment for breast cancer. This article summarizes the findings generated through a mixed-method evaluation of the program's appropriateness, effectiveness, and efficiency.
Our study demonstrated a high incidence of recollapse of the augmented vertebrae after PVP treatment for OVCFs. A risk score based on all significant factors can predict the rate of recollapse and gain clinical benefits to prevent recollapse in patients at high risk.
Previously independent living older people suffering fractures of the hip have a high risk of new admission to a nursing home during the subsequent months. This study shows that older people admitted to hospital for fractures of the pelvis and spine have a similar risk of admission to a nursing home.
In the first year, after an osteoporotic fracture of a hip, forearm, upper arm, or spine, the dispensing rates of antidepressants and benzodiazepines increased significantly. After those fractures, recent and past use of antidepressants and benzodiazepines was associated with increased all-cause mortality; current use was not associated with mortality risk.
There is a need of studies exploring the link between socioeconomic status and DXA scans and osteoporotic fracture, which was the aim of the present study. No differences in socioeconomic status and risk of osteoporotic fractures were found. However, women with further/higher education and higher income are more often DXA-scanned.
In a population-based study of older Swedish women, we investigated the proportion of women treated with osteoporosis medication in relation to the proportion of women eligible for treatment according to national guidelines. We found that only a minority (22%) of those eligible for treatment were prescribed osteoporosis medication.
Understanding the resistance and resilience of foundation plant species to climate change is a critical issue because the loss of these species would fundamentally reshape communities and ecosystem processes. High levels of population genetic diversity may buffer foundation species against climate disruptions, but the strong selective pressures associated with climatic shifts may also rapidly reduce such diversity. We characterized genetic diversity and its responsiveness to experimental drought in the foun...
