Comorbidity-Based Payment Methodology for Medicaid Enrollees with HIV/AIDS

S. Hamid Fakhraei, John J. Kaelin & Richard Conviser
Managed care organizations (MCOs) may be incurring financial losses from persons with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) (PWHA). This study developed a statistical model to examine which specific comorbidities are important contributors to the variations in health care costs of PWHA. Individuals were classified into cost groups to simulate biased selection in MCOs. Capitation payments for various cost groups under different methodologies were compared. The statistical model closely matched payments with...

An Evaluation of the HealthChoice Program 2003 ‐ 2007

The Hilltop Institute
HealthChoice—Maryland’s statewide mandatory Medicaid managed care program—was implemented in 1997 under authority of Section 1115 of the Social Security Act. Since the inception of HealthChoice, the Maryland Department of Health has conducted five comprehensive evaluations of the program as part of the 1115 waiver renewals. Between waiver renewals, the Department completes an annual evaluation for HealthChoice stakeholders. This report is the 2014 annual evaluation of the HealthChoice program.

Plastered Crania and Community Rituals in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic Levant

Hanah Romsburg
During the Pre-Pottery Neolithic, complicated mortuary ritual developed in the Levant, which expanded upon traditions of earlier time periods. During the earlier Natufian and Pre-Pottery Neolithic A periods there was already an emphasis on the head and especially the face, and crania were removed after burial. However, in the PPNB, these practices were expanded and contained more elaborate elements than the previous time periods. The emphasis on the face and post-mortem cranium removal is evidenced...

The Physics of Accretion Onto Highly Magnetized Neutron Stars

Michael T. Wolff, Peter A. Becker, Joel Coley, Felix Fürst, Sebastien Guillot, Alice Harding, Paul Hemphill, Gaurava K. Jaisawal, Peter Kretschmar, Matthias Bissinger Né Kühnel, Christian Malacaria, Katja Pottschmidt, Richard Rothschild, Rüdiger Staubert, John Tomsick, Brent West, Jörn Wilms, Colleen Wilson-Hodge & Kent Wood
Studying the physical processes occurring in the region just above the magnetic poles of strongly magnetized, accreting binary neutron stars is essential to our understanding of stellar and binary system evolution. Perhaps more importantly, it provides us with a natural laboratory for studying the physics of high temperature and high density plasmas exposed to extreme radiation, gravitational, and magnetic fields. Observations over the past decade have shed new light on the manner in which plasma...

Time Domain Studies of Neutron Star and Black Hole Populations: X-ray Identification of Compact Object Types

Neven Vulic, A. E. Hornschemeier, V. Antoniou, A. R. Basu-Zych, B. Binder, F. M. Fornasini, F. Furst, F. Haberl, M. Heida, B. D. Lehmer, T. J. Maccarone, A. F. Ptak, G. R. Sivakoff, P. Tzanavaris, D. R. Wik, B. F. Williams, J. Wilms, M. Yukita & A. Zezas
What are the most important conditions and processes governing the growth of stellar-origin compact objects? The identification of compact object type as either black hole (BH) or neutron star (NS) is fundamental to understanding their formation and evolution. To date, time-domain determination of compact object type remains a relatively untapped tool. Measurement of orbital periods, pulsations, and bursts will lead to a revolution in the study of the demographics of NS and BH populations, linking...

A Shocking Shift in Paradigm for Classical Novae

Laura Chomiuk, Elias Aydi, Aliya-Nur Babul, Andrea Derdzinski, Adam Kawash, Kwan-Lok Li, Justin Linford, Brian D. Metzger, Koji Mukai, Michael P. Rupen, Jennifer Sokoloski, Kirill Sokolovsky & Elad Steinberg
The discovery of GeV gamma-rays from classical novae has led to a reassessment of these garden-variety explosions, and highlighted their importance for understanding radiative shocks, particle acceleration, and dust formation in more exotic, distant transients. Recent collaboration between observers and theorists has revealed that shocks in novae are energetically important, and can even dominate their bolometric luminosity. Shocks may also explain long-standing mysteries in novae such as dust production, super-Eddington luminosities, and `flares' in optical...

Eden Gardens Farm: A Series of Lessons on Aquaponics

Ashley Pritchard
Aquaponics is a sustainable method of food production that combines aquaculture and hydroponics to produce both plants and fish for consumption. Eden Gardens is a 120 -cre farm of the nonprofit organization of Glodev in its early stages of production that uses aquaponics as well as other forms of sustainable agriculture to produce food for its community in Jacksonville, Florida. The farm currently has two greenhouses, a garden, and an orchard. Future stages of the...

Germ Cells and Epigenetics

Cynthia R. Wagner
All multicellular organisms begin life as a single cell, the zygote, created by the union of two germ cells, an oocyte and a sperm. Although scientists have understood for decades that the quantity of DNA an individual inherits from each parent is equivalent, a 1984 discovery by McGrath and Solter revealed that these genes are used differently depending on whether the genes are inherited from the mother or the father (McGrath & Solter 1984). These...
