This dataset contains the results of a sanitary risk inspection for different groundwater sources in Kisumu, Kenya. A total of 70 groundwater sources were surveyed between February and March 2014. The survey took the form of an observation checklist that identified contamination hazards at well heads and in their immediate surroundings. Data on well depth, electro-conductivity, pH and temperature were also collected. The data were collected as part of the Groundwater2030 project, which aims to...

Micro-scale modelling of the urban wind speed for air pollution applications

Thor-Bjørn Ottosen, Matthias Ketzel, Henrik Skov, Ole Hertel, Jørgen Brandt & Konstantinos E. Kakosimos
Modelling wind speeds in urban areas have many applications e.g. in relation to assessment of wind energy, modelling air pollution, and building design and engineering. Models for extrapolating the urban wind speed exist, but little attention has been paid to the influence of the upwind terrain and the foundations for the extrapolation schemes. To analyse the influence of the upwind terrain and the foundations for the extrapolation of the urban wind speed, measurements from six...

Strikingly similar: Comparing visual political communication of populist and non-populist parties across 28 countries

Xénia Farkas, Daniel Jackson, Paweł Baranowski, Márton Bene, Uta Russmann & Anastasia Veneti
Along with the recent boom in support of populist movements in Europe, social media seems to be the ideal place for their interaction with the public. While Facebook has been thoroughly explored for populist campaigning, there is still scarce research on visual aspects of their communication. Analysing the 2019 European Parliament campaign, this study seeks to determine the distinct characteristics of a populist visual communication style and its differences in relation to the non-populist parties....

Identifying optimal vaccination scenarios to reduce varicella zoster virus transmission and reactivation

Kevin M Bakker, Marisa C Eisenberg, Robert J Woods & Micaela E Martinez
Abstract Background Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is one of the eight known human herpesviruses. Initial VZV infection results in chickenpox, while viral reactivation following a period of latency manifests as shingles. Separate vaccines exist to protect against both initial infection and subsequent reactivation. Controversy regarding chickenpox vaccination is contentious with most countries not including the vaccine in their childhood immunization schedule due to the hypothesized negative impact on immune-boosting, where VZV reactivation is suppressed through...

How acceptable do parents experiencing mental health challenges find e-Health interventions for mental health in the postnatal period: a systematic review

Rosie Attard, Jane Iles & Rose-Marie Satherley
Abstract Poor mental health in the postnatal period is experienced by high numbers of parents, with a high associated cost to society, however accessing therapeutic support during this time is complicated by parenting commitments. This has been further compounded by the covid-19 pandemic, where access to traditional therapy has been impacted. A lack of access to support for poor mental health in this period can have long term impacts on both the parents and their...

Disentangling change across the time and true stability of employees’ resilience using latent state model

Lucie Ollis, Mark Cropley, David Plans & Hugo Cogo-Moreira
Abstract There is debate within the literature about whether resilience should be considered a stable character trait or a dynamic, changeable process (state). Two widely used measures to assess resilience are the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale (CD-RISC) and the Resilience Scale for Adults (RSA). The aim of this study was to evaluate the true stability (invariance) and change across time in resilience captured by these two measures. Using the perspective of Latent State-Trait theory, the aim...

Implementation of a medicine management plan (MMP) to reduce medication-related harm (MRH) in older people post-hospital discharge: a randomised controlled trial

Khalid Ali, Ekow A. Mensah, Eugene Ace McDermott, Frances A. Kirkham, Jennifer Stevenson, Victoria Hamer, Nikesh Parekh, Rebekah Schiff, Tischa Van Der Cammen, Stephen Nyangoma, Sally Fowler-Davis, Graham Davies, Heather Gage & Chakravarthi Rajkumar
Abstract Background Medication-related harm (MRH) is an escalating global challenge especially among older adults. The period following hospital discharge carries high-risk for MRH due to medication discrepancies, limited patient/carer education and support, and poor communication between hospital and community professionals. Discharge Medical Service (DMS), a newly introduced NHS scheme, aims to reduce post-discharge MRH through an electronic communication between hospital and community pharmacists. Our study team has previously developed a risk-prediction tool (RPT) for MRH...

Data from: Why on earth did I buy that? A study of regretted appliance purchases

Thomas Roberts, Aimie Hope & Alexandra Skelton
If targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby tackle climate change are to be achieved, it will be necessary to reduce both embodied energy costs (e.g. in terms of producing and manufacturing the products and services that society consumes) and operational energy costs. Reducing the number of purchases that people regret could be a first step in changing the overall dynamic of consumption patterns. This research looks at some potentially adverse effects of consumption...

A practical introduction to sequentially Markovian coalescent methods for estimating demographic history from genomic data

Niklas Mather, Simon Ho & Samuel Traves
A common goal of population genomics and molecular ecology is to reconstruct the demographic history of a species of interest. A pair of powerful tools based on the sequentially Markovian coalescent have been developed to infer past population sizes using genome sequences. These methods are most useful when sequences are available for only a limited number of genomes and when the aim is to study ancient demographic events. The results of these analyses can be...

MOBIO is a dataset for mobile face and speaker recognition. The dataset consists of bi-modal (audio and video) data taken from 152 people. The dataset has a female-male ratio of nearly 1:2 (100 males and 52 females) and was collected from August 2008 until July 2010 in six different sites from five different countries. This led to a diverse bi-modal dataset with both native and non-native English speakers.

Natali Bozhilova, Alice Welham, Dawn Adams, Stacey Bissell, Hilgo Bruining, Hayley Crawford, Kate Eden, Lisa Nelson, Christopher Oliver, Laurie Powis, Caroline Richards, Jane Waite, Peter Watson, Hefin Rhys, Lucy Wilde, Kate Woodcock & Joanna Moss
BACKGROUND: Phenotypic studies have identified distinct patterns of autistic characteristics in genetic syndromes associated with intellectual disability (ID), leading to diagnostic uncertainty and compromised access to autism-related support. Previous research has tended to include small samples and diverse measures, which limits the generalisability of findings. In this study, we generated detailed profiles of autistic characteristics in a large sample of > 1500 individuals with rare genetic syndromes. METHODS: Profiles of autistic characteristics based on the...

Tandem RNA isolation reveals functional rearrangement of RNA-binding proteins on CDKN1B/p27Kip1 3’UTRs in cisplatin treated cells

Valentina Iadevaia, Maikel D. Wouters, Alexander Kanitz, Ana M. Matia-González, Emma E. Laing & André P. Gerber
Post-transcriptional control of gene expression is mediated via RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) that interact with mRNAs in a combinatorial fashion. While recent global RNA interactome capture experiments expanded the repertoire of cellular RBPs quiet dramatically, little is known about the assembly of RBPs on particular mRNAs; and how these associations change and control the fate of the mRNA in drug-treatment conditions. Here we introduce a novel biochemical approach, termed tobramycin-based tandem RNA isolation procedure (tobTRIP), to...

Data from: Trajectory energy minimisation for cell growth tracking and genealogy analysis

Yin Hu, Su Wang, Nan Ma, Suzanne M. Hingley-Wilson, Andrea Rocco, Johnjoe McFadden, Hongying Tang & Hongying Lilian Tang
Cell growth experiments with a microfluidic device produce large-scale time-lapse image data, which contain important information on cell growth and patterns in their genealogy. To extract such information, we propose a scheme to segment and track bacterial cells automatically. In contrast with most published approaches, which often split segmentation and tracking into two independent procedures, we focus on designing an algorithm that describes cell properties evolving between consecutive frames by feeding segmentation and tracking results...
