  • Readability of Patient Educational Materials in Hip and Knee Arthroplasty: Has a Decade Made a Difference? [Journal Article]
    J Arthroplasty. 2020 Jun 10 [Online ahead of print]Doinn TÓ, Broderick JM, … Quinlan JF
  • CONCLUSIONS: Arthroplasty PEMs produced by leading worldwide healthcare organisations have readability scores that are above the recommended levels. Given the imperative role of health literacy in patient outcomes and satisfaction, and the increasing prevalence of Internet use among orthopedic patients, a substantial amount of work needs to be done to improve the readability of these materials.
  • A perspective on biomass-derived biofuels: From catalyst design principles to fuel properties. [Journal Article]
    J Hazard Mater. 2020 Jun 13; 400:123198.Kim Y, Thomas AE, … Kim S
  • The hazards to health and the environment associated with the transportation sector include smog, particulate matter, and greenhouse gas emissions. Conversion of lignocellulosic biomass into biofuels has the potential to provide significant amounts of infrastructure-compatible liquid transportation fuels that reduce those hazardous materials. However, the development of these technologies is inef…
  • Key Word Signing Has Higher Iconicity Than Sign Language. [Journal Article]
    J Speech Lang Hear Res. 2020 Jun 16 [Online ahead of print]Rombouts E, Maessen B, … Zink I
  • Purpose Key word signing (KWS) entails using manual signs to support the natural speech of individuals with normal hearing and who have communication difficulties. While manual signs from the local sign language may be used for this purpose, some KWS systems have opted for a distinct KWS lexicon. Distinct KWS lexicon typically aims for higher sign iconicity or recognizability to make the lexicon …
  • The Effect of Smog-Related Factors on Korean Domestic Tourists' Decision-Making Process. [Journal Article]
    Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2020 May 25; 17(10)Wang J, Kim J, … Song H
  • The present study aims to explore Korean domestic tourists' decision-making processes by utilizing an extended model of goal-directed behavior (EMGB) as a theoretical framework. Integrating government policy (PLY) and protection motivation for smog (PMS) with the original model of goal-directed behavior (MGB) makes it easier to better understand the formation process of tourists' behavioral inten…
  • Easy Way to Achieve Self-Adaptive Cooling of Passive Radiative Materials. [Journal Article]
    ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2020 Jun 05 [Online ahead of print]Xia Z, Fang Z, … Meng Z
  • Passive radiative cooling includes using the atmospheric window to emit heat energy to the cold outer space and hence reduce the temperature of objects on Earth. In most cases, radiative cooling is required in summer and suppressed in winter for thermal comfort. Recent radiative cooling materials cannot self-adjust cooling capacity according to season and environment, thus limiting their applicat…
  • Concentration Variability of Water-Soluble Ions during the Acceptable and Exceeded Pollution in an Industrial Region. [Journal Article]
    Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2020 May 15; 17(10)Švédová B, Raclavská H, … Juchelková D
  • This study investigates the chemical composition of water-soluble inorganic ions at eight localities situated in the Moravian-Silesian Region (the Czech Republic) at the border with Poland. Water-soluble inorganic ions were monitored in the winter period of 2018 (January, 11 days and February, 5 days). The set was divided into two periods: the acceptable period (the 24-h concentration of PM10 < 5…
  • Rapid growth of new atmospheric particles by nitric acid and ammonia condensation. [Journal Article]
    Nature. 2020 05; 581(7807):184-189.Wang M, Kong W, … Donahue NM
  • A list of authors and their affiliations appears at the end of the paper New-particle formation is a major contributor to urban smog1,2, but how it occurs in cities is often puzzling3. If the growth rates of urban particles are similar to those found in cleaner environments (1-10 nanometres per hour), then existing understanding suggests that new urban particles should be rapidly scavenged by the…
  • Public Health Communication in Time of Crisis: Readability of On-Line COVID-19 Information. [Journal Article]
    Disaster Med Public Health Prep. 2020 May 11 [Online ahead of print]Basch CH, Mohlman J, … Garcia P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Messages about COVID-19 must be readable at an "easy" level, and must contain clear guidelines for behavior. The degree to which individuals seek information in response to risk messages is positively related to the expectation that the information will resolve uncertainty. However, if the information is too complex to interpret and it fails to lead to disambiguation, this can contribute to feelings of panic.
  • A text mining approach for adapting a school-based sexual health promotion program in Colombia. [Journal Article]
    Prev Med Rep. 2020 Jun; 18:101090.Vallejo-Medina P, Correa JC, … Morales A
  • A common practice among clinical psychologists and other health professionals is the use of school-based sexual health promotion programs as a means for preventing sexually transmitted infections. A fundamental criterion for the designing and adaptation of these programs is the age of their target populations because limited education and language are the most relevant factors that limit the effi…
  • Improving graph-based detection of singular events for photochemical smog agents. [Journal Article]
    Chemosphere. 2020 Aug; 253:126660.Carmona-Cabezas R, Gómez-Gómez J, … Jiménez-Hornero FJ
  • Recently, a set of graph-based tools have been introduced for the identification of singular events of O3, NO2 and temperature time series, as well as description of their dynamics. These are based on the use of the Visibility Graphs (VG). In this work, an improvement of the original approach is proposed, being called Upside-Down Visibility Graph (UDVG). It adds the possibility of investigating t…
  • Willingness to pay for staying away from haze: Evidence from a quasi-natural experiment in Xi'an. [Journal Article]
    J Environ Manage. 2020 May 15; 262:110301.Lan F, Lv J, … Pui DYH
  • Previous studies of the residents' willingness to pay (WTP) for air quality improvement are likely suffering various endogeneity biases. Exploiting the unique opportunity of a recent quasi-experiment operation of the world's first SFT (Smog Free Tower) in China's northwestern city Xi'an, this paper reliably calibrates local residents' WTP for less exposure to haze by analyzing the price responses…
  • 'Smoging kills' - Effects of air pollution on human respiratory system. [Journal Article]
    Ann Agric Environ Med. 2020 Mar 17; 27(1):1-5.Grzywa-Celińska A, Krusiński A, Milanowski J
  • Atmospheric pollution suspended in humid air is popularly known as 'smog'. It is composed of dust particles of different sizes, as well as non-metal oxides, organic compounds, and heavy metals. Exposure to harmful substances suspended in the air - apart from, for example - smoking cigarettes, one of the modifiable factors leading to the development of respiratory diseases. There are six types of …
