Department of Biodiversity and Molecular Ecology, Research and Innovation Centre, Fondazione Edmund Mach, Via E. Mach 1, 38010, S. Michele all'Adige, Italy.

In light of the current biodiversity crisis, investigating the human impact on non-human primate gut biology is important to understanding the ecological significance of gut community dynamics across changing habitats and its role in conservation. Using traditional coproscopic parasitological techniques, we compared the gastrointestinal protozoan and metazoan symbiont richness of two primates: the Udzungwa red colobus (Procolobus gordonorum) and the yellow baboon (Papio cynocephalus). These species live sympatrically in both protected and unprotected forests within the Udzungwa Mountains of Tanzania with distinct ecological adaptations and diets. Read More

Actively Operable Thermoresponsive Smart Windows for Reducing Energy Consumption.

ACS Appl Mater Interfaces 2020 Jul 3. Epub 2020 Jul 3.

Efficient usage of finite energy resources is a core approach for preventing major blackouts caused by a severe lack of energy. Smart windows, which modulate thermal energy transferred from the incident sunlight, have attracted tremendous interest as an alternative technology for resolving the fast-approaching energy crisis by suppressing unnecessary energy usage such as air conditioning or heating inside buildings. Here, we demonstrate a set of materials and design concepts for doubly responsive smart windows, which efficiently reduce the consumption of our limited energy reserves. Read More

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) had caused major disruptions in medical and dental care across the world, affecting secondary care services that had to rapidly adapt to new circumstances. Postponed and delayed oral medicine (OM) care, deferring non-urgent follow-ups in case of patients because of COVID-19 crisis, and limited access to health care, may have lead serious consequences fororal and systemic health (Arduino et al, 2020; Jones et al, 2020). Deferred diagnosis of a malignant conditionwhen suspected or even dysplasia in oralleucoplakia cases vastly implies the clinical outcome, influencing treatment and prognosis, subsequently(Meng et al, 2020).

Since no successful treatment and vaccine have been reported, efforts to enhance the knowledge, attitudes, and practice of the public, especially the high-risk groups, are critical to manage COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, this study aimed to assess knowledge, attitude, and practice towards COVID-19 among patients with chronic disease. Read More

How to survive the end of the future: Preppers, pathology, and the everyday crisis of insecurity.

Authors:
Kezia Barker

Trans Inst Br Geogr 2020 Jun 23;45(2):483-496. Epub 2019 Dec 23.

Department of Geography Birkbeck, University of London London UK.

Emergency preparedness is a distinctive feature of contemporary anticipatory politics, yet "preppers," a sub-culture who prepare to survive a range of possible crisis events through practices including stockpiling and survival skill development, are subject to media ridicule and academic dismissal. If the hoarder is the symbolic deviant figure of the consumer society, the prepper is that of the security society. Such constructions of prepper pathology, however, work to reinforce the neoliberal security state. Read More

Severe rhabdomyolysis and acute asymptomatic pancreatitis following the concomitant use of Biktarvy in the setting of hyperosmolar diabetic crisis.

BMJ Case Rep 2020 Jul 1;13(7). Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Department of Internal Medicine, HIV Reference Center, Hôpital Erasme, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Hopital Erasme, Bruxelles, Belgium.

Biktarvy (bictegravir/emtricitabine/tenofovir alafemanide), which has been recently approved for the treatment of HIV, is a single-pill regimen that associates bictegravir and a novel integrase strand transfer inhibitor (INSTI) with a combination of two nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) of emtricitabine and tenofovir alafemanide. Among treatment complications, rhabdomyolysis has been reported in association with some NRTI and INSTI but never with bictegravir. Acute pancreatitis has also been reported recently with another INSTI, dolutegravir. Read More

MRCPsych, MMed.Sci., Consultant Psychiatrist of Later Life, St Brendan's CNU, Creagh, Ballinasloe Co. Galway, ROI.

The Covid-19 pandemic has posed many challenges in maintaining standards of care and treatment for patients while managing the increased anxieties of patients, carers and the public in general. This paper highlights several clinical, administrative, medicolegal and IT implications of Covid-19 on the delivery of mental healthcare to an elderly vulnerable patient cohort due to recommended social distancing measures. Our Psychiatry of Later Life team has adapted to this by restricting face-to-face consultation, while continuing to provide telephone support. Read More

Neurocognitive Correlates of Internet Search Skills for eHealth Fact and Symptom Information in a Young Adult Sample.

Percept Mot Skills 2020 Jul 1:31512520938178. Epub 2020 Jul 1.

Department of Psychology, University of Houston.

As the Covid 19 crisis has revealed, the internet is a first-line tool for learning critical health-related information. However, internet searches are a complex and dynamic process that can be fraught with subtleties and potential error. The mechanics of searching for and using electronic health (eHealth) information is ostensibly cognitively demanding; yet we know little about the role of neurocognitive abilities in this regard.

Routes to extreme events in dynamical systems: Dynamical and statistical characteristics.

Chaos 2020 Jun;30(6):063114

Department of Mathematics, Jadavpur University, Jadavpur, Kolkata 700032, India.

Intermittent large amplitude events are seen in the temporal evolution of a state variable of many dynamical systems. Such intermittent large events suddenly start appearing in dynamical systems at a critical value of a system parameter and continues for a range of parameter values. Three important processes of instabilities, namely, interior crisis, Pomeau-Manneville intermittency, and the breakdown of quasiperiodic motion, are most common as observed in many systems that lead to such occasional and rare transitions to large amplitude spiking events.

Introducing Care Ethics into Humanitarianism Comment on "A Crisis of Humanitarianism: Refugees at the Gates of Europe".

Authors:
Hara Kouki

Int J Health Policy Manag 2020 Feb 2. Epub 2020 Feb 2.

Open Lab, University of Newcastle, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Since 2015, the so-called refugee crisis has transformed 'humanitarianism' into a word devoid of meaning or value for European politics. By now, we all know there are numerous migrant populations in Europe living under inhuman conditions and denied their inalienable human rights; still, it seems futile to argue that equal value should be attached to all lives. Introducing care ethics into relief work calls to reflect upon humanitarianism differently, as a relationship between local communities, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) workers and refugees that is embedded in space and time and might be allowed to have a future.
