This study aims to improve construction safety by controlling critical hazards using dissipative structure theory (DST) applied to an associated network of workplace hazards. To analyze the interaction of hazards leading to human errors, the associated network is established using the cognitive reliability and error analysis method (CREAM) and complex network theory. This network-based approach is applied to the onsite hazard and rectification records of seven construction projects in Qingdao, China. DST is employed to simulate the energy exchange process in the consideration of hazard association and management. Finally, ...

New research coming out of Durham could increase the effectiveness of a cocaine vaccine that blocks the illicit drug's effect – giving promise for therapeutic applications to help recovery. According to a new study by Duke University researchers, published in the journal npj Vaccines, a new formulation tested in mice has effectively negated the effects of cocaine. The drug works by pushing the body's immune system to c reate antibodies to respond against cocaine. The mice studies, according to…

Conclusions: The maximum length of the coracoid available for transfer in Malasian Malay patients was less than what has been recommended in the literature for the Latarjet procedure. The surface area that would be increased after a coracoid graft is placed on the glenoid would be 12.4±1.8 mm. Knowledge obtained from this study may help us further optimize osseous considerations for the Latarjet procedure in the Malaysian Malay population. Level of Evidence: Level III.

Publication date: April 2020Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 67Author(s): Yoshinori Mine, Kaustav Majumder, Yan Jin, Yuhan ZengAbstractThe aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract against hen egg ovalbumin (OVA)-induced allergic response in mice. BALB/c mice were sensitized with OVA via intraperitoneal injection for four weeks and subsequently administered the different doses of Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract (0.1 0.5 and 1.0% w/v) in drinking water. We demonstrated that Rubus suavissimus S. Lee extract can attenuate OVA allergic response in mice by inducing immune dese...

It's too soon to know for sure how the tale of the novel coronavirus will play out,but at this point we have a pretty good idea. A stipulation in both of the scenarios at the linked essay is that yeah, it gets loose into the wild and eventually can show up anywhere in the world. I think that's pretty much definitely going to happen if it hasn't already.Scenario number 1, and most likely, in my view, it will just be one more virus that causes what amounts to a common cold and in a few people who are otherwise debilitated goes on to be complicated by pneumonia. In that case, for a year or two it will circulate as a novel vir...

Three months. That’s as long as Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, is willing to wait to get a vaccine candidate against the latest coronavirus that he can start testing in people. Since the virus was identified for the first time in people who fell ill with pneumonia-like symptoms in Wuhan, China, last December, the World Health Organization has declared this coronavirus outbreak, named 2019n-CoV, a public health emergency of international concern. In just over a month, more 11,000 people have tested positive for the virus in...
