Use It or Lose It? Predicting Learning Transfer of Relationship and Marriage Education Among Child Welfare ProfessionalsDownload
Objective: Following a training in relationship and marriage education (RME), examine whether applying information at 2 months is associated with application at 6 months and how participants’ confidence, utility, and self-efficacy is associated with learning transfer and application at 2 months...
Background/Aim In Alberta, mask wear in public continues to be mandatory to limit the spread of COVID-19. Public health guidelines on correct wear and handling of masks is established to ensure effectivity. However, with COVID-19 incidence increasing in adults in their 20s and 30s, questions are...
Introduction. Intergenerational programs have been touted to address the generation gaps and isolation of older adults. Mutual contact alone has produced mixed results, but attention to the intergenerational program content demonstrates well-being benefits. This practice-based article examines...
Family and relationship researchers ask research questions at the dyadic- or family level, yet analyses are often conducted at the individual level. We review theoretical perspectives relative to studying families and dyads and note how they are connected with dyadic analysis techniques. We note...

Although polyester is well known for smelling strongly after wear, little is known about the propensity of nylon to retain and emit body odor. In this study, we investigated whether odor intensity differed between nylon and polyester fabrics. A secondary aim was to compare odor on fabrics frozen...
Retention and release of odorants in cotton and polyester fabrics following multiple soil/wash proceduresDownload
Odorous clothing can be an annoying and unpleasant problem particularly when odorants are not effectively removed via laundering. Cotton and polyester knit fabrics were soiled with three selected odorants, representing different polarities and lipophilicities (i.e. octanoic acid, 2-nonenal,...
Understanding the surrounding atmosphere and reacting accordingly with a precise action are always fascinating features of a material. Materials that pose such responsiveness are called smart materials. Currently, research studies on smart materials are being accelerated exponentially around the...
Odor in textiles: A review of evaluation methods, fabric characteristics, and odor control technologiesDownload
During use, textile items can develop unpleasant odors that arise from many different sources, both internal and external to the human body. Laundering is not always effective at removing odors, with odor potentially building up over time, due to incomplete removal of soils and odorous compounds,...
Mediation and ANCOVA Models to Study the Influence of Solvent Retting Traits and Plant Physique on Bast Fiber Yield and Retting TimeDownload
The study aims in applying two statistical tools to analyze the retting behavior of plant stems for extracting bast fibers for industrial applications. At first, a mediation model is employed to investigate the first hypothesis of this work that involves studying the color response of the retted...
