Refining the use of scleractinian cold-water coral skeleton-bound d15N as a proxy for marine N cyclingRecent studies show that cold-water corals and their skeletons provide valuable information about the marine nitrogen (N) cycle. This information can shed light on the processes that both drive and respond to changes in Earth?s climate. Cold-water corals are found across the global ocean and can be dated with decadal precision, offering spatial and temporal records of the N cycle in…

The benefits of savoring interventions for improving mental health have recently been demonstrated with older adults. Using a randomized controlled design involving = 63 adults (aged 60-90 years), we explore whether relational savoring, a targeted intervention in which participants savor (intensify and prolong) positive emotions associated with the connection experienced with another person, particularly those involving the provision of safe haven/secure base attachment care, is associated wi…

Plant adaptation to biotic and abiotic stresses is governed by a variety of factors, among which the regulation of stomatal aperture in response to water deficit or pathogens plays a crucial role. Identifying small molecules that regulate stomatal movement can therefore contribute to understanding the physiological basis by which plants adapt to their environment. Large-scale screening approaches that have been used to identify regulators of stomatal movement have potential limitations: some …

Research on rodents and non-human primates has established the involvement of the superior colliculus in defensive behaviours and visual threat detection. The superior colliculus has been well-studied in humans for its functional roles in saccade and visual processing, but less is known about its involvement in affect. In standard functional MRI studies of the human superior colliculus, it is challenging to discern activity in the superior colliculus from activity in surrounding nuclei such a…

This study validates Shane et al.’s Entrepreneurial Career Motives Scale across nations. A total sample of 948 undergraduate and postgraduate students from five nations (China = 229, Hong Kong = 213, Holland = 136, United States = 155, and Ghana = 215) were recruited to complete a survey designed to measure their entrepreneurial motives and other related constructs. Confirmatory factor analysis supported the hypothesized four-factor structure, namely, perceived recognition, sense of independe…

Flavonoid natural products are well known for their beneficial antimicrobial, antitumor, and anti-inflammatory properties, however, some of these natural products often are rhamnosylated, which severely limits their bioavailability. The lack of endogenous rhamnosidases in the human GI tract not only prevents many of these glycosylated compounds from being of value in functional foods but also limits the modification of natural product libraries being tested for drug discovery. RHA-P is a cata…

Existing research suggests that parenthood is both emotionally rewarding and demanding, yet little work has examined multiple facets of parents' emotions. The current study examines the complexity of parents' emotions by examining the intensity, variability, and emodiversity of mothers' positive and negative emotions across caregiving and noncaregiving contexts. Data were collected from 136 mothers of young children using ecological momentary assessment (EMA) to measure their real-time experi…

This study investigated the water balance physiology of Venezillo arizonicus, a land isopod endemic to the Southwest Desert Ecoregion of North America. Evaporative water losses were measured in two ways: gravimetric in dry air, and by perfusing animals with dry air in a respirometry chamber and monitoring downstream relative humidity (RH). The respective mean loss flux estimates were 0.140 and 0.177 μg h cm Pa, lower than other N. American Oniscidea described to date (≥0.491 μg h cm Pa). Humi…

The proliferation of mobile devices has changed the way that individuals access digital information with desktop applications now performed seamlessly in mobile applications. Mobile applications related to healthcare, finance/banking, etc., have highly sensitive data where unsecure access could have serious consequences. This chapter demonstrates an approach to Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for mobile applications that allows an information owner to define who can do what by role, which is…

When presented with a gamble involving a chance of winning $9, participants rate it as only moderately attractive. However, when other participants are presented with a gamble that adds a chance of losing 5 cents - resulting in gamble that is strictly worse - they rate it as much more attractive. This surprising effect has previously been explained in terms of the small loss increasing the affective evaluability of $9. This paper argues for an alternative model, in which the baseline and smal…
