Ocular injuries due to fireworks and firecrackers - Gabel-Pfisterer A, B öhringer D, Agostini H.

Colorful balls of light and glittering sparks of sparkle against the dark night sky, exuberant people and the generational anticipation of a new year: Over the past few years, more than 130 million euros have been spent on private fireworks in Germany....

In this study, for the rapid preparation of PAC from pulverized coal, response surface methodology (RSM) based on central composite design (CCD) was used to develop the second order quadratic models of SO2 adsorption capacity and burn-off. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to determine the effective parameters of the two models, and to explain the accuracy and fitness of them. In addition, the 3D response surface plots illustrated the influencing rules of the variables and their interactions. Further, multi-objective optimization was performed to maximize SO2 adsorption capacity and minimize burn-off using the desirabi...

Prof Sandy Harrison tells the Liberal on his Facebook page that his misuse of her study should not go unchallengedA leading UK climate scientist has used the Facebook page of the MP Craig Kelly to correct his “blatant misrepresentation” of a study she co-authored on a 70,000-year history of bushfires in Australia.Kelly, a serial denier of climate change, has been using the 2011 study to claim rising CO2 in the atmosphere can ’t be linked to Australia’s bushfire crisis, because the study had shown total area being burned was going down while CO2 is rising.Continue reading...

In the above paper, authors stated mistakenly that Philip Morris International acquired 35% of JUUL shares, while Altria, the parent company of Philip Morris USA, made that acquisition and that IQOS is an e-cigarette, while it is considered by the FDA as a heat-not-burn tobacco device.

AbstractParenthood remains one of the most gender-typed social roles in adulthood. Given gender inequality in parenting, it has been very surprising to find that parental burnout affects both mothers and fathers in equal proportion. The aim of the present study was to properly test gender effects in the nature, average level, antecedents, and consequences of parental burnout. Data were collected from a strictly matched sample of about 900 French- and English-speaking mothers and fathers. We found measurement invariance across genders and a higher average level of parental burnout among mothers than fathers. We also found t...

In recent years the undergraduate medical curriculum in the United Kingdom has undergone significant reshaping to reflect the primary and holistic care needs of today's society. Subspecialty interests; such as burns care and reconstruction, are now infrequently represented in the formal teaching programme1 –4. We aimed to further explore medical students’ self-reported confidence in initial burns management to give an indication whether more emphasis on teaching this subject at an undergraduate level is required.

Lithium manganese oxide, LiMn2O4, was synthesized in two temperature stages, where the first consisted by an ecofriendly solution combustion method at 300 °C. Finally, the as-burned powders were thermal treated at 500 and 700 °C. The structural and morphological changes were evaluated by the Rietveld method and density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The Rietveld refinement indicates obtaining the spinel cubic phase LiMn2O4 and a small amount of Mn2O3. The analyses by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) show a porous microstructure composed of nano-sized crystallites ...
