Due to the wide applications of three-dimensional graphene (3DG) foam in bio-sensors, stretchable electronics, and conductive polymer composites, predicting its mechanical behavior is of paramount importance. In this paper, a novel multiscale finite element (FE) model is proposed to predict the compressive modulus of 3DG foams with various densities. It considers the effects of pore size and structure and the thickness of graphene walls on 3DG foams' overall behavior. Read More

Background: Substantial evidence supports the benefits of supervised exercise training (ET) in people with multiple sclerosis (MS). However, there are limitations such as transportation problems preventing physical activity for some people with MS. One opportunity for increasing physical activity participant in people with MS is home-based exercise training (HBET), yet we are unaware of a systematic review of HBET in people with MS. Read More

Objective: Sports-related activity has been proposed as a risk factor for ALS, particularly among professionals playing American football and soccer, with a reported prevalence between two and forty times higher than the general population. Early onset (by two decades) was described among Italian soccer players as early as 2005. This study aims to characterise the phenotype of seven Spanish retired professional and semi-professional soccer players. Read More

E. coli is the number one cause for water quality impairments in rivers and streams in South Dakota and the United States. Stream bottom sediments can be a reservoir for bacteria, including pathogenic organisms and fecal indicator bacteria (FIB), due to the favorable conditions provided by sediments for survival.
