Indexing Cognitive Resource Usage for Acquisition of Initial Voice Therapy Targets
CONCLUSIONS: Brief exposure to initial treatment tasks in CTT is more cognitively depleting than initial RVT tasks. Results also indicate that vocally healthy participants are able to make a voice change in response to a brief therapy prompt. Finally, participant-rated measures of mental effort and secondary measures of cognitive depletion do not always correlate.PMID:36701805 | DOI:10.1044/2022_AJSLP-22-00197 (Source: American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology)

Associations between trajectories of obesity prevalence in English primary school children and the UK soft drinks industry levy: An interrupted time series analysis of surveillance data
ConclusionsOur results suggest that the SDIL was associated with decreased prevalence of obesity in year 6 girls, with the greatest differences in those living in the most deprived areas. Additional strategies beyond SSB taxation will be needed to reduce obesity prevalence overall, and particularly in older boys and younger children. Trial registrationISRCTN18042742.

IJERPH, Vol. 20, Pages 1720: Determinants of Foreign Direct Investment in ASEAN+3 Countries: The Role of Environmental Degradation
This study includes environmental degradation as a potential factor and employs the panel ARDL approach to analyse data from 1995 to 2019. Results show that environmental degradation, infrastructure, and corruption can affect the inflow of FDI in the long run. In the short run, inflation can affect FDI. The findings of this study can be utilized by policymakers in formulating the right policies to attract more investors. An increase in infrastructure facilities should be considered to attract more foreign investment. It is also vital for governments to reduce corruption and inflation to attract more FDI inflows. Environmen...

The impact of alcohol taxation increase on all-cause mortality inequalities in Lithuania: an interrupted time series analysis
Taxation increases which reduce the affordability of alcohol are expected to reduce mortality inequalities. A recent taxation increase in Lithuania offers the unique possibility to test this hypothesis. (Source: BMC Medicine)

The BCC DEA technique of data envelopment analysis (DEA) is used to examine the nexus among variables by applying small input-output estimation parameters. Researchers found that green financing strategies like government subsidies and tax refunds for green financing are effective in cutting carbon emissions in developing nations.

The social value of gambling: surplus estimates by gambling types for France
AbstractWe estimate the social surplus of gambling in France by adding three components: consumer surplus, producer surplus and taxation revenue. To estimate consumer surplus, we use the rational benchmark approach, which attributes a loss of welfare (i.e. a negative surplus) to problem gamblers depending on their level of excess spending compared with recreational gamblers. Using data for the year 2019 and considering only legal gambling, we find that the consumer surplus is negative for the gambling activity as a whole. When we add the producer surplus and the taxation revenue to the consumer surplus, we find that the so...

Accelerating tobacco control at the national level with the Smoke-free Generation movement in the Netherlands
We examined the factors contributing to these successes, focussing on the network of tobacco control advocacy organisations and the process of agenda-setting. Crucial determining factors were stricter adherence to Article 5.3 FCTC, which prevents government to consult tobacco industry, and the genesis of a 'Smoke-free Generation' movement in the wider society, initiated by the three main national charities (Lung Foundation Netherlands, Dutch Heart Foundation, Dutch Cancer Society). The Smoke-free Generation concept proved to be a highly attractive unifying strategy for national en local policy makers and Dutch society. As ...
