A longitudinal and cross-sectional examination of the relationship between reasons for choosing a neighbourhood, physical activity and body mass indexDownload
Abstract: Background: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between body mass index and neighborhood walkability, socioeconomic status (SES), reasons for choosing neighborhoods, physical activity, fruit and vegetable intake, and demographic variables. Methods: Two studies,...
Acid-base properties of cyanobacterial surfaces I: Influences of growth phase and nitrogen metabolism on cell surface reactivityDownload
Significant efforts have been made to elucidate the chemical properties of bacterial surfaces for the purposes of refining surface complexation models that can account for their metal sorptive behavior under diverse conditions. However, the influence of culturing conditions on surface chemical...
Broccoli sprout supplementation during placental insufficiency confers structural and functional neuroprotection to the fetal ratDownload
Background: Perinatal ischemic brain injury leads to developmental disability (DD), which accounts for 30% of disabilities in children. Antepartum risk, or risk occurring prior to birth occurs in more than 90% of cases. This study investigated whether maternal ingestion of a natural health...
Background: Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest terrestrial carnivores of all time, and consequently its ecology and diet have been the focus of much discussion. However, there is little direct evidence of diet or feeding habits in this species. Methodology/Principal Findings: Examination...
Climbing simulated vegetation to heights of ungulate hosts by larvae of Dermacentor albipictus (Acari: Ixodidae)Download
Abstract: Larvae of winter ticks, Dermacentor albipictus (Packard), ascend vegetation in autumn and form clumps that attach to passing ungulate hosts. We tested the hypothesis that vegetation height determines the height of clumps. During the vegetation-to-ungulate transmission period (early...
We present Van Allen Probes observations of modulations in the flux of very energetic electrons up to a few MeV and protons between 1200 and 1400 UT on 19 February 2014. During this event the spacecraft were in the dayside magnetosphere at L⋆≈5.5. The modulations extended across a wide range of...
Data for Improvement and Clinical Excellence: Protocol for an Audit with Feedback Intervention in Home Care and Supportive LivingDownload
Background: Although considerable evidence exists about the effectiveness of audit coupled with feedback, very few audit-with-feedback interventions have been done in either home care or supportive living settings to date. With little history of audit and feedback in home care or supportive...
Different scales of spatial segregation of two species of feather mites on the wings of a passerine birdDownload
The \"condition-specific competition hypothesis\" proposes that coexistence of 2 species is possible when spatial or temporal variations in environmental conditions exist and each species responds differently to those conditions. The distribution of different species of feather mites on their...
Ease of Imagination, Message Framing and Physical Activity Messages
Abstract: Objectives. The purpose of this research was to replicate a study that examined how message framing and ease of imagination interact to influence attitudes towards the prevention of heart disease through physical activity and a healthy diet. Changes were made such that only physical...
