Barriers and facilitators to meeting aphasia guideline recommendations: what factors influence speech pathologists’ practice?

Kirstine Shrubsole, Linda Worrall, Emma Power & Denise A. O’Connor
Purpose: To explore factors influencing Australian speech pathologists’ guideline recommended aphasia management practices. Methods: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with hospital-based speech pathologists (n = 20). Interviews focused on barriers and facilitators to implementing recommendations related to five practice areas: Aphasia-friendly Information; Collaborative Goal Setting; Timing of Therapy; Amount and Intensity of Therapy; and Conversation Partner Training. Results: Speech pathologists working only in inpatient rehabilitation settings reported performing the recommended behaviours consistently, and identified few implementation...

Comprehensive genotyping of the C9orf72 hexanucleotide repeat region in 2095 ALS samples from the NINDS collection using a two-mode, long-read PCR assay

Eran Bram, Kamyab Javanmardi, Kimberly Nicholson, Kristen Culp, Julie R. Thibert, Jon Kemppainen, Vivian Le, Annette Schlageter, Andrew Hadd & Gary J. Latham
Objective: Expansion of the G4C2 repeat tract in the C9orf72 gene is linked to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Here, we provide comprehensive genotyping of the C9orf72 repeat region for the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) ALS collection (n = 2095), using a novel bimodal PCR assay capable of amplifying nearly 100% GC-rich sequences. Methods: A single-tube 3-primer PCR assay mode, resolved using capillary electrophoresis, was used for sizing...

Precision of T2 TSE MRI-CT-image fusions based on gold fiducials and repetitive T2 TSE MRI-MRI-fusions for adaptive IGRT of prostate cancer by using phantom and patient data

D. Wegener, D. Zips, D. Thorwarth, J. Weiß, A. E. Othman, U. Grosse, M. Notohamiprodjo, K. Nikolaou & A. C. Müller
Introduction: To increase precision of radiation treatment (RT) delivery in prostate cancer, MRI-based RT as well as the use of fiducials like gold markers (GMs) have shown promising results. Their combined use is currently under investigation in clinical trials. Here, we aimed to evaluate a workflow of image registration based on GMs between CT and MRI as well as weekly MRI-MRI adaption based on T2 TSE sequence. Material and methods: A gel-phantom with two inserted...

Three-dimensional nickel foam electrode for efficient electro-Fenton in a novel reactor

Yingshi Zhu, Shan Qiu, Fengxia Deng, Fang Ma, Guojun Li & Yanshi Zheng
One of the bottlenecks often encountered in electro-Fenton technology is its low ability to produce hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Thus, the hunt of suitable electrodes and reactor are a must to be tackled in order to improve the efficiency of the system. In this study, three-dimensional nickel foam was selected as cathode for in situ generating H2O2 efficiently and graphite was the control group in an enhanced oxygen mass transfer reactor. The micro-structure and electrochemical performance...

Utility of the Croatian translation of the community integration questionnaire-revised in a sample of adults with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury

Dubravko Tršinski, Meri Tadinac, Žarko Bakran & Ivana Klepo
Purpose: To examine the utility of the Community Integration Questionnaire-Revised, translated into Croatian, in a sample of adults with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury. Method: The Community Integration Questionnaire-Revised was administered to a sample of 88 adults with traumatic brain injury and to a control sample matched by gender, age and education. Participants with traumatic brain injury were divided into four subgroups according to injury severity. Results: The internal consistency of the Community Integration...

Civic Ritual and the Marriage to the Adriatic: The Doge in the Myth and Liturgy Of Renaissance Venice

Lewis Whitaker
This short paper outlines many of the layers of civic and liturgical mythology that accompanied the Doge of Venice, which culminated in the annual "marriage to the sea," celebrated on Ascension Day.

“‘Roofs of Fretted Gold’ Pandaemonium, St. Peter’s, and the Aesthetics of Hell in John Milton’s Paradise Lost”

Lewis Whitaker
This paper, presented at the Rocky Mountain Division of the American Society for Aesthetics, explores the ways in which Milton's depiction of Hell in "Paradise Lost" may have been influenced by the poet's anti-Catholicism, and his visit to Rome. It traces the ways in which Milton's description of Satan's temple in Hell resembles the seat of the Roman Catholic pope in St. Peter's Basilica.

Syntaxonomic revision of chasmophytic vegetation of the Centaureo cuspidatae-Portenschlagiellion ramosissimae (Southeastern Adriatic)

Massimo Terzi & Nenad Jasprica
The Centaureo-Portenschlagiellion describes the cliff vegetation of the Southeastern Adriatic. This habitat type harbours many endemic taxa and has a high value for biodiversity conservation. Notwithstanding its importance, knowledge of the syntaxonomy of this alliance is still poor. This article aims at revising the synchorological, coenological and floristic relationships of the associations of the Centaureo-Portenschlagiellion. The revision is based on a data set of 103 relevés of Mediterranean xerothermic cliffs from Croatia, Bosnia i Herzegovina...

Predicting trajectories with probabilistic time geography and massive unconstrained movement data

Anita Graser
This paper introduces two data-driven approaches for vessel trajectory prediction based on AIS data: Statistical Model Learning and Similar Trajectory Search. Both data-driven approaches use one month of Danish AIS data to predict cargo vessel trajectories up to 15 minutes into the future. Results show that data-driven approaches outperform commonly used linear trajectory prediction, with Similar Trajectory Search providing the best results.

Elite polarization and voting turnout in Latin America, 1993–2010

Sergio Béjar, Juan A. Moraes & Santiago López-Cariboni
Despite substantial advances in political participation across Latin America, relevant data from the region reveals an important cross-national and temporal variation in voter turnout. Unlike existing region-specific explanations of voter turnout, but in line with research on advanced democracies, we show here that actual electoral mobilization in Latin America is linked to the ideological and programmatic shifts experienced by political elites since the 1990s. Specifically, we first suggest that by setting clear programmatic stances and...
