Introduction: Non-Hispanic Black (NHB) and Hispanic/Afro-Caribbean men have the highest risk for prostate cancer (PCa) compared to non-Hispanic White (NHW) men. However, ethnicity-specific outcomes of targeted fusion biopsy (FB) for the detection of PCa are poorly characterized. We compared the outcomes of FB by Prostate Imaging and Reporting Data System (PI-RADS) score and race/ethnicity among a diverse population. Read More

This study was aimed to examine the influence of acclimatization on the change of concentration of stress hormones in men's serum exposed to heat stress during physical training. The study included a total of 40 men, aged 19-21 years, divided randomly into four groups: CTRL group: control, exposed to the Exercise Tolerance Testing in comfortable conditions; O group: exposed to Exercise Tolerance Testing in a warm environment; P group: exposed to passive acclimation to heat for 10 days, followed by Exercise Tolerance Testing in a warm environment; A group: exposed to active acclimation to heat for 10 days, followed by Exercise Tolerance Testing in a warm environment. All participants were tested for thermoregulation and acclimatization, skin and tympanic temperature, heart rate (HR), hormonal status and sweating. Read More

Scholars have been increasingly concerned about the rise in "intensive mothering" and its implications for the well-being of children and women and for inequality more broadly. These concerns, however, reflect a key assumption: that socioeconomic disparities in mothers' parenting time observed in earlier eras have continued to grow. Using the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) from 2003-2005 and 2015-2017 (n = 13,755), we test this assumption by examining whether maternal education gaps in active time spent with children have persisted across the 2000s.
