Exercise Can Chase Away the Blues, to a Point
A new analysis of data from 1.2 million people in the United States found they reported 3.4 days a month of poor mental health on average. But those who were physically active had 1.5 fewer "down" days a month than those who were not active.
CONCLUSIONS: In 92.6% of patients, pancreatic tissues with>5 HPFs were obtained by EUS-FNA using a 22-G needle. In 63% of patients, histology was evaluated to be ≥ level 2 according to the ICDC. The study indicates that EUS-FNA with a 22-G needle is valuable in the histopathological diagnosis of AIP. PMID: 30422724 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions/Importance: Preliminary findings indicate the importance of considering school racial composition as a systems level risk or promotive factor for attitudes toward substance use as well as substance use outcomes. PMID: 30422753 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions/Importance: With the exception regarding the finding that woman scored higher on the self-sacrifice EMS than men, the homogeneity of the remaining EMS scores across men and women found in this study support the use of inter-gender group Schema Therapy (ST) with alcohol-dependent adults in Australia.

A salmonella outbreak lingers as Thanksgiving approaches, making it especially important to follow advice for safe handling of raw turkey
Publication date: Available online 13 November 2018Source: Materials Research BulletinAuthor(s): Zizhen Li, Xiangchao Meng, Zisheng ZhangAbstractThe recent emergence of layered MoS2, which is an earth-abundant material, has gained increasing attention in various fields. In this work, MoS2 is fabricated via a simple hydrothermal method with different sulfur precursors. The effect of S source on the morphologies and adsorption capacities of Rhodamine B (RhB) onto MoS2 were investigated. The results indicated that the MoS2 prepared by CH4N2S exhibited the highest adsorption capacity. The N2 sorption isotherm indicated that th...

The crystal structures and luminescence properties are investigated. Excitation/emission bands of LiCa3MgV3O12:Bi3+ phosphor show red-shift with increasing the monitored/excitation wavelengths from short to long. The doping of Bi3+ ion can result in the host LiCa3MgV3O12 lattice distortion and the energy transfer (ET) from...
Publication date: Available online 13 November 2018Source: Materials Research BulletinAuthor(s): Hong Xi Jiang, Shu Chen LüAbstractNaLa(WO4)2 phosphors with various Eu3+ and Sm3+ concentrations were prepared via a molten salt method. The structure and luminescent properties of the prepared samples were analyzed by the X-ray diffraction (XRD) and fluorescence spectrophotometer. The results show that the crystal phase of all the prepared samples is single tetragonal crystal structure. The energy transfer type between Eu3+ ions is proved to be the exchange interaction and the electron-phonon coupling is weak. With the in...
