CONCLUSION: Majority of the viewers used mobile phones, and mobile phones and tablets had significantly longer average view durations as compared to computer/TV. YouTube and wireless devices may have potential as internet based psychiatric emergency outreach platform. This study calls for further research to explore the effectiveness of using social media and wireless devices for psychiatric emergency education prior to ED arrival, particularly in minority populations with cultural barriers to health care.

AbstractThree BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates designed to target the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) at the extracellular domain were synthesized and their specificity for binding to EGFR was investigated. Peptide sequences containing seven amino acids, GLARLLT (2) and KLARLLT (3), and 13 amino acids, GYHWYGYTPQNVI (4), were conjugated to carboxyl BODIPY dye (1) by amide bond formation in up to 73% yields. The BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates and their “parent” peptides were determined to bind to EGFR experimentally using SPR analysis, and were further investigated using computational methods (AUTODOCK). Resul...

AbstractWe study interdependent risks in security, and shed light on the economic and policy implications of increasing security interdependence in presence of reactive attackers. We investigate the impact of potential public policy arrangements on the security of a group of interdependent organizations, namely, airports. Focusing on security expenditures and costs to society, as assessed by a social planner, to individual airports and to attackers, we first develop a game ‐theoretic framework, and derive explicit Nash equilibrium and socially optimal solutions in the airports network. We then conduct numerical experimen...

Authors: Alikhajeh Y, Barabadi E, Mohammad Rahimi GR Abstract CONTEXT: In many societies, although chronic low back pain (LBP) is a significant problem, there is no consensus on the optimal therapeutic intervention. OBJECTIVE: To compare the impact of aquatic exercise (AE) and kinesio taping (KT) on the pain intensity and functional incapacity in women with chronic nonspecific LBP. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SETTING: Outpatient clinic. PARTICIPANTS: Thirty-six women with chronic nonspecific LBP (mean [SD]: age = 50.69 [4.187] y) participated. INTERVENTIONS: Participants randomly a...
