Lessons From the Future: Advice From People Who Have Been Living With the Threat of COVID-19 for Weeks
Before COVID-19 swept across western Europe and caused schools and bars to close across the United States, it threatened East and Southeast Asia. Millions of Americans and Europeans are now learning to cope with changes to their daily lives brought on by coronavirus precautions—changes that have been a reality since January or February across mainland China and in places like Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan. For weeks, in many places across Asia, children have been home from school, employees have been working from home and people have been learning to conduct their lives amid the outbreak. With that in mind, here is some advice for staying safe, healthy and productive through the disruption and danger of COVID-19—from people who have already experienced it. Keep things in perspective “You’re not alone. Your fears are not atypical. Knowing that this too shall pass, just like those newborn days with your kids, that’s an important message. This isn’t the beginning of the end. Keeping that perspective, and also humor has really helped me… Like recognizing that I’m wearing a mask, stockpiling toilet paper, and that this is ridiculous, right?” — Stephanie Young, 39, therapist and mother of two in Hong Kong Make sure your kids are active, occupied and well-rested “No matter what age they are, kids absolutely need to get some physical activity in their day. I make it a point every day that all three [of my kids] h...
Authors: Shi YQ, Qi WF, Kong CY Abstract Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), which normally manifests as a multi‑joint inflammatory reaction, is a common immunological disease in clinical practice. However, the pathogenesis of RA has not yet been fully elucidated. Rituximab (RTX) is an effective drug in the treatment of RA, however its therapeutic efficacy and mechanism of action require further investigation. Thus, the present study aimed to screen the candidate key regulatory genes and explain the potential mechanisms of RA. Gene chips of RA and normal joint tissues were analyzed and, gene chips of RTX before and after ...
In conclusion, TCGA classification based on a Chinese population is the same as TCGA typing based on a European population in terms of proportion and clinical characteristics, but there are differences in gene amplification and gene mutation. ACRG molecular classification could be performed by IHC analysis and may be a valuable independent prognostic marker for patients with GC. PMID: 32468041 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
This article proposes strategies to ensure the ongoing effectiveness, efficiency and engagement of lectures transitioning from face-to-face to online delivery. Cognitive learning theory, strategies to promote learner engagement and minimise distraction, and examples of software affordances to support active learning during the lecture are proposed. This enables lecturers to navigate the challenges of lecturing in an online environment and plan fruitful online lectures during this disruptive time. These suggestions will therefore enable HPE to better meet the existing and future needs of regional, rural and remote learners ...
Conclusions: 60% of patients with MDD and/or AAD had at least one additional NCCD, which significantly increased the economic and humanistic burden. These findings are important for payers and clinicians in making treatment decisions. These results underscore the need for development of multi-pronged interventions which aim to improve quality of life and reduce activity limitations among patients with mental health disorders and NCCDs.
