Int J Microbiol. 2023 May 27;2023:8951351. doi: 10.1155/2023/8951351. eCollection 2023.ABSTRACTAlternaria solani and Phytophthora infestans cause early and late blight diseases in tomato and potato, respectively. A. solani can survive for more than a decade in the soil, seed, or in plant residues at optimum temperature. The pathogen exhibits high molecular and genetic variation between isolates from potato and tomato plants, in different countries. Morphological studies reveal separate conidia borne singly on simple conidiophores. Spores are elongated, muriform, beaked, septate, and dark coloured. The mycelia are branched ...

Outcomes of a Newly Established Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy Service in the Middle East
CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that EMNB can be safely performed in a Middle Eastern population with results similar to those reported in major international studies. The highest diagnostic yield was in patients with a bronchus sign on a CT scan, and combining EMNB with ROSE can increase the chances of having a positive diagnostic bronchoscopy. However, patients and physicians need to be aware of the need to follow up with the patients with negative biopsies to ensure that false negatives are not missed.PMID:37273953 | PMC:PMC10156047 | DOI:10.2174/18743064-v16-e2204210 (Source: Respiratory Care)

Exploring Reimbursement Pathways for Lifestyle Medicine and Health Promotion Services in Occupational Therapy
Am J Occup Ther. 2023 May 1;77(3):7703090010. doi: 10.5014/ajot.2023.050251.ABSTRACTOccupational therapy practitioners are uniquely qualified and positioned to offer both preventive and rehabilitative models of care. However, the status quo of current reimbursement models has created a barrier to occupational therapy practitioners receiving adequate reimbursement, if any, for doing health promotion and lifestyle-focused work. In this Health Policy Perspectives article, we emphasize the need for reimbursement and propose pathways for new and perhaps untapped or underutilized models of reimbursement for occupational therapy ...

Salt confined in MIL-101(Cr) - tailoring the composite sorbents for efficient atmospheric water harvesting
ChemSusChem. 2023 Jun 5:e202300520. doi: 10.1002/cssc.202300520. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe adsorption method for atmospheric water harvesting (AWH) is considered as a promising heat driven technology for potable water supply in arid regions. This research is focused on the novel composite sorbents based on hygroscopic salts loaded in the pores of MIL-101(Cr) developed for AWH. The composites based on LiCl, LiBr, CaCl2, and Ca(NO3)2 were synthesised and comprehensively studied by SEM, XRD, N2 adsorption, and TG methods. We evidence that the CaCl2/MIL-101(Cr) composite demonstrates a high net water uptake of 0.52-0.5...

The Effects of Daylight Saving Time (DST) Transition Cancelation on Work Accidents of Turkey
Conclusion. The findings from these studies suggest that the cancellation of DST transition does not have a negative effect on the incidence of work accidents in Turkey, on the contrary, this practice also serves the purpose of preventing work accidents.PMID:37272121 | DOI:10.1080/10803548.2023.2221590 (Source: International Journal of Occupational Safety and Ergonomics)

Orthodontic and Orthognathic Surgical Treatment in a Patient with a Large Lymphatic Malformation of the Face: A Case Report
Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 2023 Jun 4:10556656231177214. doi: 10.1177/10556656231177214. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLymphatic malformations (LMs) are congenital abnormalities in the development of the lymphatic system. They can damage other structures including the airway, blood vessels, nerves, or bones. LMs of the face can result in malocclusion, and many patients with LMs of the face require orthognathic surgery to correct the malocclusion. Surgery-first is a treatment modality which should be considered for individuals with LMs and is a protocol in which orthognathic surgery is performed prior to orthodontic treatmen...

Collecting sexual orientation in counseling research: Implications for counselor education
AbstractSexual orientation is often invisible in counseling research despite increasing LGBQ+ identity in the United States. We used consensual qualitative research to explore considerations from LGBQ+ counseling researchers for collecting sexual orientation. Three domains emerged: risks, benefits, and methodological considerations. Our findings highlight inclusive research practice strategies for LGBQ+ research participants.

Plant polymerase IV sensitizes chromatin through histone modifications to preclude spread of silencing into protein-coding domains [RESEARCH]
Across eukaryotes, gene regulation is manifested via chromatin states roughly distinguished as heterochromatin and euchromatin. The establishment, maintenance, and modulation of the chromatin states is mediated using several factors including chromatin modifiers. However, factors that avoid the intrusion of silencing signals into protein-coding genes are poorly understood. Here we show that a plant specific paralog of RNA polymerase (Pol) II, named Pol IV, is involved in avoidance of facultative heterochromatic marks in protein-coding genes, in addition to its well-established functions in silencing repeats and transposons...

Nurses ’ perception of missed nursing care in a Western Australian teaching hospital: A cross-sectional study
Missed nursing care (MNC)  has gained increasing emphasis in nursing literature because of its association with nurse and patient outcomes in healthcare settings. While missed care has been widely studied, little evidence is available on the types and frequency of missed care, reasons for its occurrence, and predictors of m issed care in Western Australia.

The effectiveness of two types of low-level laser therapy in patients with persistent tinnitus
AbstractTinnitus is a perception disorder of sound with no hearing impulse. It is a very common otology complaint that leads to worsening quality of life. The experience of sound is only the product of neural system activity, with no matching mechanical or vibratory activity in the cochlea, and is unrelated to any external stimuli. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a medical treatment of tinnitus that uses low-energy-level lasers or light-emitting diodes to stimulate or inhibit cellular function. The study included nine patients aged 20 –68 years with unilateral or bilateral tinnitus. It was a self-controlled clinical tr...

An investigation of relationships between body compassion, social physique anxiety and physical appearance perfectionism in young people from Iran
ConclusionsThe results suggested that individuals with greater levels of physical appearance perfectionism are more likely to experience social physique anxiety. Also, the results suggested that individuals who were at a high level of the body-compassion group experienced lower levels of social physical anxiety if they also had high levels of physical appearance perfectionism. Therefore, body-compassion acted as a protective role in the relationship between physical appearance perfectionism and social physique anxiety. (Source: Journal of Eating Disorders)
