In a series of three companion papers published in this Journal, we identify and validate the available thermal stress indicators (TSIs). In this third paper, we conducted field experiments across nine countries to evaluate the efficacy of 61 meteorology-based TSIs for assessing the physiological strain experienced by individuals working in the heat. We monitored 372 experi-enced and acclimatized workers during 893 full work shifts. We continuously assessed core body temperature, mean skin temperature, and heart...

Indicators to assess physiological heat strain – Part 1: Systematic review

Leonidas G. Ioannou, Konstantinos Mantzios, Lydia Tsoutsoubi, Sean R. Notley, Petros C. Dinas, Matt Brearley, Yoram Epstein, George Havenith, Michael N. Sawka, Peter Bröde, Igor B. Mekjavic, Glen P. Kenny, Thomas E. Bernard, Lars Nybo & Andreas D. Flouris
In a series of three companion papers published in this Journal, we identify and validate the available thermal stress indicators (TSIs). In this first paper of the series, we conducted a systematic review (registration: INPLASY202090088) to identify all TSIs and provide reliable information regarding their use (funded by EU Horizon 2020; HEAT-SHIELD). Eight databases (PubMed, Agricultural and Environmental Science Collection, Web of Science, Scopus, Embase, Russian Science Citation Index, MEDLINE, and Google Scholar) were searched...

Indicators to assess physiological heat strain – Part 2: Delphi exercise

Leonidas G. Ioannou, Petros C. Dinas, Sean R. Notley, Flora Gofa, George A. Gourzoulidis, Matt Brearley, Yoram Epstein, George Havenith, Michael N. Sawka, Peter Bröde, Igor B. Mekjavic, Glen P. Kenny, Thomas E. Bernard, Lars Nybo & Andreas D. Flouris
In a series of three companion papers published in this Journal, we identify and validate the available thermal stress indicators (TSIs). In this second paper of the series, we identified the criteria to consider when adopting a TSI to protect individuals who work in the heat, and we weighed their relative importance using a Delphi exercise with 20 experts. Two Delphi iterations were adequate to reach consensus within the expert panel (Cronbach’s α = 0.86)...

Defining and measuring indicators of successful transitions for youth aging out of child welfare systems: A scoping review and narrative synthesis

Sabrina Agnihotri, Caroline Park, Roland Jones, Deborah Goodman & Mitesh Patel
Youth aging out of child welfare systems face an abrupt transition to adulthood and expectation for self-sufficiency with few supports. The current study represents a scoping review and narrative synthesis that sought to identify indicators used to measure the success of aging out youth and their corresponding methods of assessment. A database search was conducted and 150 articles were included in the review. Results revealed eight broad indicators of successful transitions, including: education, employment, basic...

Emetine, a potent alkaloid for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 targeting papain-like protease and non-structural proteins: pharmacokinetics, molecular docking and dynamic studies

Mejdi Snoussi, Alaeddine Redissi, Amor Mosbah, Vincenzo De Feo, Mohd Adnan, Kaïss Aouadi, Mousa Alreshidi, Mitesh Patel, Adel Kadri & Emira Noumi
The main objective of this study is to find out the anti-SARS-CoV-2 potential of emetine by using molecular docking and dynamic simulation approaches. Interestingly, molecular docking studies suggest that Emetine showed significant binding affinity toward Nsp15 (-10.8 kcal/mol) followed by Nsp12 (-9.5 kcal/mol), RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, RdRp (-9.5 kcal/mol), Nsp16 (-9.4 kcal/mol), Nsp10 (-9.2 kcal/mol), Papain-like protein (-9.0 kcal/mol), Nsp13 (-9.0 kcal/mol), Nsp14 (-8.9 kcal/mol) and Spike Protein Receptor Domain (-8.8 kcal/mol) and chymotrypsin-like protease,...

Implementing social network analysis to understand the socio-ecology of wildlife co-occurrence and joint interactions with humans in anthropogenic environments

Krishna Balasubramaniam, Stefano Kaburu, Pascal Marty, Brianne Beisner, Eliza Bliss-Moreau, Malgorzata Arlet, Nadine Ruppert, Ahmad Ismail, Sahrul Anuar Mohd Sah, Lalith Mohan, Sandeep Rattan, Ullasa Kodandaramaiah & Brenda McCowan
1. Human population expansion into wildlife habitats has increased interest in the behavioral ecology of human-wildlife interactions. To date, however, the socio-ecological factors that determine whether, when or where wild animals take risks by interacting with humans and anthropogenic factors still remains unclear. 2. We adopt a comparative approach to address this gap, using social network analysis (SNA). SNA, increasingly implemented to determine human impact on wildlife ecology, can be a powerful tool to understand...

Review of Philip Butterworth, Staging Conventions in Medieval English Theatre. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2014. 272 pp. ISBN 9781107015487

Daisy Black
Questioning the use of post-medieval theatre concepts and terms (such as ‘character’, ‘characterization’ and ‘stage direction’), Staging Conventions in Medieval English Theatre calls for a review of the ways we approach medieval performance. Considering a range of fourteenth-to sixteenth-century plays, records and supporting texts from England and Cornwall, this exciting study examines the ‘agreed pretence’ established between performance instigators and witnesses. Ten chapters address staging conventions including indoor and outdoor performance; casting and doubling; rehearsing,...
