Repeated Media Exposure to Mass Violence Linked to Posttraumatic Stress Symptoms
Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of the school shooting in Columbine, Colo., that claimed the lives of 15 people, and the media have already begun to bombard viewers with images and footage of the massacre ’s aftermath. Although it’s natural to turn to the news to get information about such events, watching coverage of them over and over may be harmful to mental health, according to astudy inScience Advances. The researchers, led by Roxane Cohen Silver, Ph.D., at the University of California, Irvine, found that media exposure to traumatic events may make viewers more emotionally sensitive to news reports of other, s...

Photocatalytic conversion of nitrogen to ammonia with water on triphase interfaces of hydrophilic-hydrophobic composite Bi4O5Br2/ZIF-8
Publication date: 1 September 2019Source: Chemical Engineering Journal, Volume 371Author(s): Jianxin Liu, Rui Li, Xiang Zu, Xiaochao Zhang, Yunfang Wang, Yawen Wang, Caimei FanAbstractPhotocatalysis can produce NH3 using N2 and H2O at room temperature and atmospheric pressure, which has been considering as a safe, clean, and sustainable NH3 synthesis. However, the poor solubility and slow diffusion rate of N2 in water severely limited the nitrogen activation efficiency. Herein, we solve this problem by developing a hydrophilic-hydrophobic structure photocatalyst with gas-liquid-solid triphase reaction interface, where hydr...

It was found that the calcination temperature of copper metal-organic frameworks greatly affected the properties of Cu/C. Under optimal conditions, the furfural conversion and FM selectivity are 99.4% and 100%, respectively. Interestingly, the hydrogenation of furfural to FM coul...

Sulfur Hexafluoride (SF6) versus Perfluoropropane (C3F8) in the Intraoperative Management of Macular Holes: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
Conclusions: Both SF6 and C3F8 appear to have achieved similar visual outcomes and primary closure rates and neither was associated with an increased risk of adverse events. Considering the more rapid visual recovery with SF6, there appears to be no evidence to support C3F8 as the tamponade agent of choice for macular hole surgery. PMID: 30993017 [PubMed]

A review of the fate of inhaled α-quartz in the lungs of rats.
Authors: Kawasaki H Abstract The distribution of dust particles within the lungs and their excretion are highly associated with their pulmonary toxicity. Literature was reviewed to discern pulmonary translocation pathways for inhaled α-quartz compared to those for inhaled TiO2. Accordingly, it was hypothesized α-quartz particles in the alveoli were phagocytized by alveolar macrophages but silica-containing macrophages remained in the alveoli for longer time in contrast to the rapid elimination from the alveoli seen for TiO2-containing macrophages. In addition, it was presumed that free silica particles are transl...

Bayesian Analysis of Three-Parameter Frechet Distribution with Medical Applications.
Authors: Abbas K, Abbasi NY, Ali A, Khan SA, Manzoor S, Khalil A, Khalil U, Khan DM, Hussain Z, Altaf M Abstract The medical data are often filed for each patient in clinical studies in order to inform decision-making. Usually, medical data are generally skewed to the right, and skewed distributions can be the appropriate candidates in making inferences using Bayesian framework. Furthermore, the Bayesian estimators of skewed distribution can be used to tackle the problem of decision-making in medicine and health management under uncertainty. For medical diagnosis, physician can use the Bayesian estimators to quanti...

The Act purportedly includes substance use disorder (SUD) specifically in the definition of mental illness itself. However, some of the phrases used in the definition such as "abuse" are not clear, as the current classificatory systems of mental illnesses do not have any diagnostic category termed "abuse." Another important issue is the lack of clarity on which categori...

Yet another study has dispelled the popular “you have to eat breakfast” myth, and I’m thrilled. The breakfast cereal aisle is the most nutritionally horrifying area of the supermarket, crawling with sugary carbs in all shapes and flavors, all disguised as health food.

Reviewing the Epigenetic Clock as a Predictor of Age-Related Mortality and Disease
Epigenetic clocks are weighted combinations of the DNA methylation status of various locations on the genome, shown to reflect chronological or biological age. DNA methylation is an epigenetic marker involved in regulating the production of proteins from their blueprint genes, and these markers constantly shift in response to circumstances, a part of the feedback loop of cellular metabolism. Definitive references to the epigenetic clock, singular, usually mean the original clock established by Steve Horvath's team and called DNA methylation age. A fair amount of work has gone into characterizing the behavior of this clock,...
