COVID-19-related hospital admission in spouses of partners in at-risk occupations
Conclusions SARS-CoV-2 transmission at the workplace may pose an increased risk of severe COVID-19 among spouses in low-risk jobs living with partners in high-risk jobs, which emphasizes the need for preventive measures at the workplace in future outbreaks of epidemic contagious disease. When available, effective vaccines seem essential. by Bonde JPE, Begtrup LM, Coggon D, Jensen JH, Flachs EM, Jakobsson K, Nielsen C, Nilsson K, Rylander L, Vilhelmsson A, Petersen KU, Tøttenborg SS. doi:10.5271/sjweh.4081 (Source: Scandinavian Journal of Work, Environment and Health)

IJERPH, Vol. 20, Pages 2886: Green Jobs: Bibliometric Review
This article aims to identify keyword-specified areas around which the topic of GJs revolves in the scientific literature indexed in the Scopus database. The usage of two methods has achieved this goal. First is the Structured Literature Review (SLR) variation with queries, and it is used to explore the scientific database to determine GJ’s definition consistency by the queries syntax. The second method is the search results analysis performed in the Scopus database online to identify the most cited publications and most contributing authors. Then the bibliometric analysis was performed to create bibliometric...

News at a glance: Pandemic declarations, job satisfaction in the COVID-19 era, and a nuclear-powered rocket
SPACE FLIGHT Nuclear rocket eyed for Mars trips NASA and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) plan to launch and test a nuclear-powered rocket engine in space as soon as 2027, the agencies announced last week. Such engines promise higher thrust and efficiency than conventional ones, enabling faster travel times and bigger payloads for human missions to Mars, the agencies say. Although NASA has experimented with nuclear engines since the 1960s, none has been demonstrated in space. Powered by low-enriched uranium, the engine’s fission reactor will heat and vaporize liquid propellants...

The General Factor of Personality (GFP) is associated with higher salary, having a leadership position, and working in a social job
Acta Psychol (Amst). 2023 Jan 31;234:103847. doi: 10.1016/j.actpsy.2023.103847. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPrevious studies have suggested that a general factor exists at the top of the hierarchal structure of personality. One interpretation of this General Factor of Personality (GFP) is that it reflects social effectiveness. Accordingly, in a large employee sample (N = 1267), we tested whether the GFP relates to several outcomes assumed to be linked with social effectiveness. Specifically, we examine whether the GFP is positively related to salary and to obtaining a leadership position. Additionally, we test whether hi...

Learning from 'lived expertise: engaging athletes and patients in sport and exercise medicine research and policy
Athletes’ and patients’ perspectives are critical in Sport and Exercise Medicine research1 and the voices of those most impacted by research, policy development and implementation must be actively engaged throughout the process—‘nothing about us, without us’. Athletes know about their experiences in ways that researchers/clinicians cannot, unless they live with the same conditions or injuries. For this reason, they bring ‘lived expertise’ that complements and is of equal importance to the scientific and medical expertise of others on the team. They bring different ways of thinking ...

IJERPH, Vol. 20, Pages 2640: Catastrophic Costs among Tuberculosis-Affected Households in Egypt: Magnitude, Cost Drivers, and Coping Strategies
This study aimed to measure the catastrophic healthcare payments among TB patients in Egypt, to determine its cost drivers and determinants and to describe the coping strategies. The study utilized an Arabic-validated version of the TB cost tool developed by the WHO for estimating catastrophic healthcare expenditure using the cluster-based sample survey with stratification in seven administrative regions in Alexandria. TB payments were considered catastrophic if the total cost exceeded 20% of the household’s annual income. A total of 276 patients were interviewed: 76.4% were males, 50.0% were in the age group...

Occupation –Education Mismatch of Immigrant Women in Europe
AbstractAgainst the background of continuing gains in female education and labour market participation and rising migration, we investigate whether women work in occupations which match their educational qualifications and whether migrant women face double penalty in being overqualified for their jobs. Using the data from the European Social Survey covering 2002 –2020 with detailed information about occupation and educational attainment, we show that migrant women are significantly more likely to be overqualified in their jobs relative to native women. We explore the role of individual, institutional and workplace factor...
