School Breakfast Policy Is Associated with Dietary Intake of Fourth- and Fifth-Grade Students.

J Acad Nutr Diet 2016 Mar 1;116(3):449-457. Epub 2015 Oct 1.

Background: Breakfast skipping has been associated with obesity. Schools have adopted breakfast policies to increase breakfast participation. Recently, there have been concerns that students in schools where breakfast is served in the classroom may be eating two breakfasts--one at home and one at school--thereby increasing their risk of excessive energy intake and weight gain.

RF personal exposimetry on employees of elementary schools, kindergartens and day nurseries as a proxy for child exposures.

Prog Biophys Mol Biol 2011 Dec 6;107(3):449-55. Epub 2011 Oct 6.

Frédéric Joliot-Curie National Research Institute for Radiobiology and Radiohygiene, Budapest, Hungary.

Personal RF exposimetry has been in the focus of the bioelectromagnetics community in the last few years. With a few exceptions, exposimetry studies focused on adults, because measuring the exposure of children, one of the most important target groups, introduces many complications. The main feature of our study is to select teachers and kindergarten caretakers as volunteers. Read More

Does contact by a family nurse practitioner decrease early school absence?

J Sch Nurs 2012 Feb 14;28(1):38-46. Epub 2011 Sep 14.

Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools, Chapel Hill, NC 27514, USA.

Chronic early school absence (preschool through third grade) is associated with school failure. The presence of school nurses may lead to fewer absences, and nurse practitioners in school-based health centers (SBHCs) can facilitate a healthier population resulting in improved attendance. Efforts to get students back to school are unexplored in nursing literature. Read More

[The mechanisms of formation and evolution of B chromosomes in Korean field mice Apodemus peninsulae (Mammalia, Rodentia)].

Genetika 2009 Apr;45(4):449-57

Several hypotheses concerning variations in the frequency of some elementary events determining the formation and reorganization of mammalian B chromosomes are proposed on the basis of the data on their number, morphology, and DNA composition in Korean field mice Apodemus peninsulae (Mammalia, Rodentia) from natural populations of Altai, Buryatia, Irkutsk oblast, and Primorye. The mechanisms and causes responsible for the formation of B chromosomes and differences in their organization in populations of mice from geographically separated regions are discussed. Read More

Atomistic basis for the plastic yield criterion of metallic glass.

Nat Mater 2003 Jul;2(7):449-52

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA.

Because of their disordered atomic structure, amorphous metals (termed metallic glasses) have fundamentally different deformation mechanisms compared with polycrystalline metals. These different mechanisms give metallic glasses high strength, but the extent to which they affect other macroscopic deformation properties is uncertain. For example, the nature of the plastic-yield criterion is a point of contention, with some studies reporting yield behaviour roughly in line with that of polycrystalline metals, and others indicating strong fundamental differences.

Fly-like visuomotor responses of a robot using aVLSI motion-sensitive chips.

Biol Cybern 2001 Dec;85(6):449-57

Institute of Neuroinformatics ETH/Universität Zürich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland.

We explore the use of continuous-time analog very-large-scale-integrated (aVLSI) neuromorphic visual preprocessors together with a robotic platform in generating bio-inspired behaviors. Both the aVLSI motion sensors and the robot behaviors described in this work are inspired by the motion computation in the fly visual system and two different fly behaviors. In most robotic systems, the visual information comes from serially scanned imagers. Read More

Two-dimensional magnetic particles

Science 1998 Oct;282(5388):449-52

C. Stamm, F. Marty, A. Vaterlaus, V. Weich, S. Egger, U. Maier, D. Pescia, Laboratorium fur Festkorperphysik, Eidgenossische Technische Hochschule (ETH) Zurich, CH-8093 Zurich, Switzerland. U. Ramsperger, National Research Institute for M.

Single two-dimensional (2D) atomically thick magnetic particles of cobalt and iron with variable size and shape were fabricated by combining a mask technique with standard molecular beam epitaxy. Reduction of the lateral size of in-plane magnetized 2D cobalt films down to about 100 nanometers did not essentially modify their magnetic properties; although the separation of boundaries decreased greatly, neither domain penetrated the particle, nor was any sizable shape anisotropy observed. The mutual interaction of 2D cobalt particles was negligible, and the magnetic state of a single particle could be switched without modifying the state of the neighbors. Read More

Eliciting parental report following pediatric traumatic brain injury: preliminary findings on the Pediatric Inventory of Neurobehavioral Symptoms.

Arch Clin Neuropsychol 1997 ;12(5):449-57

Department of Pediatrics, University Hospital School, University of Iowa, Iowa City, 52242, USA.

The current article presents preliminary normative data for the Pediatric Inventory of Neurobehavioral Symptoms (PINS), a parent rating scale consisting of symptoms associated with post-traumatic cerebral dysfunction, such as disinhibition, perseveration, reduced spontaneity, inappropriate affective responses, episodic phenomena, and disruptions of biologic function. Comparison data from a sample of 50 elementary age children who had sustained traumatic brain injury (TBI) reveals significant differences on the PINS total score and each of five subscale scores. Two of the 5 PINS subscales (Episodic Symptoms, Biologic Signs) significantly differentiated the TBI and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (n = 35) groups, suggesting that these may be clinical features that distinguish post-traumatic cerebral dysfunction from developmental psychopathology.
