 Just before 9 a.m. on March 16, the scene was tense inside UCLA ’s Geffen School and across town atCharles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science.It was Match Day 2018 and 150David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA graduates, along with 25 of their counterparts at  Drew, who were watching via simulcast, were about to learn which hospital has accepted them for residency, or advanced training in their chosen specialty.After the clock struck 9, the scene erupted in a mad scramble for the blue and gold envelopes, as young doctors tore them open with their families and friends. Screams of joy pierced the air as classmates embraced and posed for photos with their acceptance letters.Angel Robinson, 29, was thrilled to match in obstetrics/gynecology at Adventist Health White Memorial in Boyle Heights. Prior to medical school, she had worked with  AmeriCorps at nearby Roosevelt High School to educate teens about reproductive health.“It feels like I’m coming home,” Robinson said. “I’m really excited to return and serve this community.”Lao-Tzu Allan-Blitz, 28, and his wife will be traveling across the country to Brigham and Women ’s Hospital in Boston, where he plans to parlay his training in internal medicine/pediatrics into a career in global health.

In this article, rigid MIL-101(Cr) and flexible MIL-53(Cr) were synthesized and used for the adsorption of two typical pharmaceuticals, clofibric acid (CA) and carbamazepine (CBZ), from water. The adsorption equilibrium was rapidly reached within 60 min and the kinetics best fitted with the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. There was no significan...

ConclusionBy conducting this systematic review on 8 valid studies, it was found that the cost-effectiveness of an imaging test strongly depends on the pretest likelihood of disease. The included studies on cost-effectiveness provide conflicting evidence in support of the use of SPECT in diagnosis of coronary artery disease. This study showed that the cost-effectiveness of an imaging test varied between subgroups of patients.

Kohnen, Amanda LacyAbstractAt the end of the fall semester, a fight broke out at a high school in the southeastern United States, a fight large enough to be covered by the local news. In this article, we analyze two data sources related to this event: one local news report and a discussion of that news report that occurred in an Intensive Reading class at the school. Intensive Reading was a remedial course designed for students who had failed a required standardized literacy assessment. In this article, we draw upon discourse anal...

Publication date: Available online 20 July 2018Source: Language SciencesAuthor(s): Shakuntala Mahanta, Amalesh GopeAbstractThe extant literature (Smith, 2000a,b, 2001, 2002) on differences between nouns versus verbs in phonology has shown that nouns enjoy a privileged status in exhibiting phonological contrasts and processes at the expense of verbal domains. In this paper, we show from original work on Sylheti tones that verbs exhibit exceptionally marked tonal polarity and dominant suffixes which are not seen in nouns. This does not lead to more contrasting patterns in nouns but nouns are faithful. Noun faithfulness can b...

Nucleoplasmin is a key factor in regulating nucleosome assembly as a chaperone during fertilization process. However, knowledge on nucleoplasmin in chromatin formation remains elusive. Herein, magnetic tweezers (MT) and a chromatin assemb...

In Study 1, we compared the two methods in a sample of apprentices (N = 53) and also investigated whether participants’ conscientiousness and locus of control moderated the effects of safety training. In Study 1, we found an effect of training me...

Authors: Ibrahim E, Sultan W, Helal S, Abo-Elwafa H, Abdelaziz A Abstract BACKGROUND: Conscious sedation is usually required during flexible bronchoscopy. Sedation should be achieved without respiratory depression or loss of consciousness. The present study was designed to evaluate the effect of pregabalin pre-medication on reducing the amount of sedatives and to show its advantages for patients undergoing flexible bronchoscopy with dexmedetomidine. METHODS: Seventy patients undergoing elective flexible bronchoscopy were randomly divided into two groups of 35 patients each. All patients received premedication o...
