Fake Smiling At Work May Lead To Heavy Drinking, Study Finds

BOSTON (CBS) — Service with a smile, that’s what many businesses expect of their employees, but a new study finds that workers who force a smile at work may drink more heavily after hours. Researchers at Penn State and the University of Buffalo studied the drinking habits of more than 1,500 people who work with the public such as food service workers, nurses and teachers. They found that the more employees had to fake or exaggerate happy emotions by, say, smiling all the time, or suppress negative ones, by rolling one’s eyes, for example, the less likely they could control their alcohol intake after work. They say employers may want to allow their workers to have a little more autonomy at work.

This study evaluates NLR in a large cohort of HCC patients. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 789 HCC cases (1993-2017) for demographics, tumor characteristics, treatment, and survival. NLR was stratified into NLR ≥1.5 and NLR ≥3 and analyzed for correlation with American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) and Barcelona Clinic Liver Cancer (BCLC) stages. In 235 patients who underwent liver resection, survival and recurrence were evaluated by NLR. Results: In 789 HCC cases, mean NLR was increased with advanced AJCC and BCLC stages. Hepatitis C patients were less likely to have NLR ≥1.5 and ≥3. Non-alcoh...

Conclusions This study revealed important information about the use of testing measures in FASD assessment and sheds light on the commonalities in practice across clinics in Alberta. Results demonstrate strong convergence of direct and indirect measures to assess brain function. Ultimately, identifying a comprehensive, reliable, and usable testing battery of measures for FASD assessment will improve the clarity and accuracy of the diagnostic process and facilitate advancements in the field, as well as enable comparisons across clinics.

Authors: Stauner N, Exline JJ, Kusina JR, Pargament KI Abstract Theoretically, religion/spirituality may protect against alcohol problems or facilitate recovery. However, challenges can arise in religious/spiritual life that may contribute to or complicate alcohol problems. Emerging adults often experience difficult transitions from family environments to independent membership in academic communities straddling the legal drinking age boundary. Among underage undergraduates, we hypothesized that religious/spiritual struggles predict more alcohol problems independently of distress and religiousness, and religiousnes...

This study explores the association between neighborhood characteristics, alcohol outlets, other micro-places, and neighborhood violence rates. Prior studies that examined the alcohol availability and violence associations suggested that alcohol outlets play an important role in violent outcomes, yet we know less about the larger environment in which alcohol outlets are located, including how the availability of other types of places that exist side by side with alcohol outlets in neighborhoods could influence the alcohol-violence relationships. I collected publicly available data on simple and aggravated assaults, neighbo...

Conclusions This meta-analysis suggests that age and body mass index are associated with increased risks of OAB, whereas employment status is associated with a decreased risk of OAB. Further prospective studies with large sample sizes are needed to confirm this conclusion.

The CUR-loaded nanoparticles (NPs) were fabricated by mixing CUR, tannic acid and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) in aqueous solutions under turbulent condition through a three-inlet confined impinging jet (CIJ) device. Compared to bulk mixing, FNC has the advantage of scalability, reproducibility and without causing the ...
