How to Win Friends and Influence People —as a Nursing Leader
Nursing leaders are responsible for guiding quality, patient-centered care that is safe, timely, efficient, and equitable. The American Organization for Nursing Leadership (AONL) Nurse Executive Competencies have outlined the skills necessary to carry out this important work. Many of these competencies involve the use of “soft skills” to effectively lead, such as effective communication, enthusiasm, emotional intelligence, and interpersonal skills. This paper provides practical guidance for how to cultivate these soft skills using Dale Carnegie’s classic book How to Win Friends and Influence People as a guide.

What's New for Clinical Whole-body MRI (WB-MRI) in the 21st Century.
Abstract Whole body MRI (WB-MRI) has evolved since its first introduction in the 1970's as an imaging technique to detect and survey disease across multiple sites and organ systems in the body. The development of diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI) has added a new dimension to the implementation of WB-MRI on modern scanners, offering excellent lesion-to-background contrast, while achieving acceptable spatial resolution to detect focal lesions 5 to 10 mm in size. MRI hardware and software advances have reduced acquisition times, with studies taking 40-50 min to complete.The rising awareness of medical radiation exposu...

Sensors, Vol. 20, Pages 4709: An Improved FBPN-Based Detection Network for Vehicles in Aerial Images
Gu With the development of artificial intelligence and big data analytics, an increasing number of researchers have tried to use deep-learning technology to train neural networks and achieved great success in the field of vehicle detection. However, as a special domain of object detection, vehicle detection in aerial images still has made limited progress because of low resolution, complex backgrounds and rotating objects. In this paper, an improved feature-balanced pyramid network (FBPN) has been proposed to enhance the network’s ability to detect small objects. By combining FBPN with modified faster re...

New clues to a 500-year old mystery about the human heart
(European Molecular Biology Laboratory - European Bioinformatics Institute) Researchers used artificial intelligence and genetic analyses to examine the structure of the inner surface of the heart using 25 000 MRI scans. They found that the complex network of muscle fibres lining the inside of the heart, called trabeculae, allows blood to flow more efficiently and can influence the risk of heart failure. The study answers old questions in human physiology and leads to new directions for understanding heart diseases.

Instrumental Robots
AbstractAdvances in artificial intelligence research allow us to build fairly sophisticated agents: robots and computer programs capable of acting and deciding on their own (in some sense). These systems raise questions about who is responsible when something goes wrong —when such systems harm or kill humans. In a recent paper, Sven Nyholm has suggested that, because current AI will likely possess what we might call “supervised agency”, the theory of responsibility for individual agency is the wrong place to look for an answer to the question of responsibilit y. Instead, or so argues Nyholm, because supervised agency...

Sensors, Vol. 20, Pages 4683: The Use of Neural Networks and Genetic Algorithms to Control Low Rigidity Shafts Machining
In this study, an objective function optimized by a genetic algorithm was replaced with a neural network trained on real-life data. The task of the genetic algorithm is to select the optimal values of the input parameters of a neural network to ensure minimum deviation. Both input vector values and the neural network’s output values are real numbers, which means the problem under consideration is regressive. The performance of three types of neural networks was analyzed: a classic multilayer perceptron network, a nonlinear autoregressive network with exogenous input (NARX) prediction network, and a deep recur...

Effect of Correcting the Postnatal Age of Preterm-Born Children on Measures of Associations Between Infant Length-for-Age z-Scores and Mid-Childhood Outcomes.
Abstract Child growth standards are commonly used to derive age- and sex-standardized anthropometric indices, but are often inappropriately applied to preterm-born children (<37 weeks of gestational age (GA)) in epidemiology studies. Using the 2004 Pelotas Birth Cohort, we examined the impact of correcting for GA in the application of child growth standards on the magnitude and direction of associations in two a priori selected exposure-outcome scenarios: infant length-for-age z score (LAZ) and mid-childhood body mass index (scenario A), and infant LAZ and mid-childhood intelligence quotient (scenario B).

In this study, we sought to elucidate the role of VRK-1 in regulation of adult life span in C. elegans. We found that overexpression of VRK-1::GFP (green fluorescent protein), which was detected in the nuclei of cells in multiple somatic tissues, including the intestine, increased life span. Conversely, genetic inhibition of vrk-1 decreased life span. We further showed that vrk-1 was essential for the increased life span of mitochondrial respiratory mutants. We demonstrated that VRK-1 was responsible for increasing the level of active and phosphorylated form of AMPK, thus promoting longevity. A Fisetin Variant, C...

Today's open access research is a good companion piece to a recent paper that investigates biochemical differences between long-lived and short-lived bats. Bats are renowned for, firstly, an exceptional resistance to classes of virus that are fatal to other mammals, allowing bat populations to act as reservoirs for potentially dangerous pathogens, and secondly for an exceptional longevity in comparison to other mammalian species of a similar size. In mammals, species longevity tends to scale up with size, with a few notable and well-studied long-lived exceptions such as naked mole-rats, humans, and some bats. In ter...
