How to Turn Criticism into an Opportunity to Strengthen Your Child ’s Emotional Intelligence
Discussions do not always work, and if negative criticism is straining your relationship and affecting your child, it might be time to distance yourself from the critical person. The thing is, you can’t always change how people perceive things, but do not allow them to change your fundamental principles.

Don ' t Assume That Gay Couples Face Mortgage Discrimination
A study by Iowa State researchers that has gotten some media attention at places likeNBC News finds that mortgage lending to same-sex applicant pairs is associated with higher rates of loan rejection and slightly higher interest rates. The study is already being cited in support of the Equality Act, a bill that, among many other provisions expanding the scope of federal law, would extend t he federal Fair Housing Act to cover sexual orientation.  There are reasons, however, to approach the findings with caution. To begin with, lenders currently have an economic incentive to underwrite loans correctly and compete for all...

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...

Highly selective hydrogenation of furfural to furan-2-ylmethanol over a Cu/C derived from copper metal-organic frameworks
Publication date: Available online 18 April 2019Source: Catalysis CommunicationsAuthor(s): Zhi-Xin Li, Xian-Yong Wei, Zheng Yang, Min Zhang, Shuo Niu, Xing-Long Meng, Jun Li, Zhi-Min ZongAbstractHighly selective hydrogenation of furfural to furan-2-ylmethanol (FM) was developed over a Cu/C derived from copper metal-organic frameworks at 500 °C. 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...

Knitting myself together
I am a knitter. Knitters come in two basic types. The project knitter buys yarn and pattern for a specific project and knits that and only that until it is finished. Process knitters knit to knit. We love to look at, touch and acquire yarn and usually have several projects going at the same time. The finished project is nice but it is the process, the knitting itself that is engaging. Sometimes the project is never completed or it is unraveled and the yarn used again for something else. I love the feel of the yarn as it slides through my fingers as I knit. I stop frequently and pull the fabric into shape and touch it and l...

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...

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...
