    Description: Enzyme mimics or artificial enzymes are a class of catalysts that have been actively pursued for decades and have heralded much interest as potentially viable alternatives to natural enzymes. Aside from having catalytic activities similar to their natural counterparts, enzyme mimics have the desired advantages of tunable structures and catalytic efficiencies, excellent tolerance to experimental conditions, lower cost, and purely synthetic routes to their preparation. Although still in the midst of development, impressive advances have already been made. Enzyme mimics have shown immense potential in the catalysis of a wide range of chemical and biological reactions, the development of chemical and biological sensing and anti‐biofouling systems, and the production of pharmaceuticals and clean fuels. This Review concerns the development of various types of enzyme mimics, namely polymeric and dendrimeric, supramolecular, nanoparticulate and proteinic enzyme mimics, with an emphasis on their synthesis, catalytic properties and technical applications. It provides an introduction to enzyme mimics and a comprehensive summary of the advances and current standings of their applications, and seeks to inspire researchers to perfect the design and synthesis of enzyme mimics and to tailor their functionality for a much wider range of applications. : This review provides a comprehensive summary of advances in enzyme mimics research, covering supramolecular, dendrimeric, polymeric, nanoparticulate and proteinic enzyme mimics. The accessibility and tunability of different scaffolds allow enzyme mimics to have a wide variety of applications, which have been categorised herein as biological reactions, biosensors, medical uses, production of fuels, green chemistry and anti‐biofouling.

    Description: Currently, most children are educated and grow up without the ability to name their body parts, much less the information about how to report sexual assault. Some communities, including Aboriginal communities, pay a high price for the lack of competent educators and curricula regarding sexuality and...

    Description: Byline: Yee Mun Jessica Leong, Joanna Crossman Keywords: bullying; emotional aspects; graduate nurses; grounded theory; job motivation; management; nursing education; nursing workforce; organisational behaviour Aims and objectives This qualitative paper reports on the transition experiences of new nurses and preceptors in Singapore, focussing on the construction of a supervisor strategy termed 'tough love'. The authors discuss the concept of tough love, as a metaphorical euphemism for workplace bullying and interrogate rationales from the data that behaviours associated with tough love, prepare nurses for independence and competence in their new responsibilities. Background Successful transition of new nurses to professional practice is dependent on the transition challenges they face at work. When new nurses are well supported in the clinical environment, retention occurs. However, when workplace adversity intensifies, nurse turnover rates increase. Design This qualitative study was conducted using a constructivist grounded theory approach. Methods New nurses (n = 26) and preceptors (n = 5) from five different hospitals participated in the study. Data were collected from semi-structured interviews and reflective journal entries and analysed using the constant comparative method. Findings Data analysis gave rise to the generation of a definition of tough love, not otherwise identified in the literature, as the negative behaviours of senior nurses towards new nurses, that is rationalised as a well-intentioned but nevertheless abusive strategy, used to condition targets into conforming to expected professional or organisational behaviour. Conclusions The authors conclude that tough love behaviour damages the transition experience of new nurses and has the potential to influence decisions on whether to remain in a health organisation and indeed the profession. Relevance to clinical practice Given nursing shortages in Singapore and internationally and that the retention of new nurses appears to be part of the problem, tough love behaviours and cultures clearly need to be addressed if investment into training and recruitment are to be realised.

    Description: Through Jennifer Yee's close reading of the great novelists of the French realist and naturalist canon - Balzac, Flaubert, Zola, Maupassant - she reveals that the colonies play a role at a distance even in the most apparently metropolitan texts. Nineteenth-century French Realism focuses on metropolitan...

    Description: The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors associated with intraoperative blood transfusions in patients presenting for intracranial aneurysm surgery in the current era of more restrictive transfusion guidelines. Retrospective observational cohort study with stepwise, multivariate binary logistic regression analysis. Tertiary care university teaching hospital. Four hundred seventy-one consecutive patients undergoing intracranial aneurysm surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (Chicago, IL) from 2006 to 2012. Red blood cell transfusion (retrospective observational). Demographic data, medical comorbidities, hemoglobin levels, Hunt-Hess grades, intracranial aneurysm characteristics, presenting intracranial bleeding states, estimated blood losses, transfused red blood cells, and blood products. Forty-six patients (9.5%) received intraoperative red blood cell transfusions. Preoperative risk factors associated with transfusions were highly related to aneurysm rupture, including such parameters as older age ( 〈 .001), lower presenting hemoglobin level ( 〈 .001), preoperative rupture ( 〈 .001), and higher Hunt-Hess grade ( 〈 .001). Intraoperative risk factors included larger aneurysm size (〉10 mm; = .03), intraventricular hemorrhage ( 〈 .001), and intracerebral hematoma evacuation ( = .02). Binary logistic regression modeling identified age ( 〈 .001), presenting hemoglobin level ( 〈 .001), larger aneurysm size (〉10 mm; = .003), elevated Hunt-Hess grade ( = .021), and intraoperative rupture ( = .013) as independent predictors of intraoperative red blood cell transfusion. The incidence of intraoperative red blood cell transfusion in intracranial aneurysm surgery in our patient cohort was 9.5%, and the most significant factors associated with transfusion were presenting hemoglobin level less than 11.7 g/dL and age greater than 52 years. It would seem advisable that these patients undergo routine type and cross-matching of red blood cells before intracranial aneurysm surgery.
