    Description: An otherwise healthy 23-year-old man presented with a 3-week history of difficulty swallowing solid food and associated vomiting. He reported no history of respiratory symptoms or weight loss. A barium-swallow examination showed substantial luminal narrowing of the distal esophagus (Panel A, arrows), and a focal mass effect could be seen anteriorly on a second projection (Panel B, arrows). Computed tomography (CT) of the chest performed after the administration of contrast material showed a well-defined, bilobed, cystic mediastinal mass measuring 7.3 cm by 3.2 cm by 7.0 cm. The mass was contiguous with the distal esophagus (Panel C, white arrows), which . . .

    Description: This paper develops and solves a general finite horizon trade credit economic ordering policy for an inventory model with deteriorating items under inflation and time value of money when shortages are not allowed. The time horizon is divided into different cycles each of which has its own demand rate and its own trade credit period offered from the supplier to his retailer so that the retailer should pay his supplier before or after the end of the permissible trade credit of that cycle. Up to the end of the trade credit of a cycle, the retailer is free of charge, but he is charged on an interest for those items not being sold before this end. The retailer can also earn the interest of the money from the generated sales revenue in any cycle by depositing such revenue into an interest bearing account. The objective of the retailer is then to minimize his net total relevant costs. A closed form of this net total cost is derived and the resulting model is solved. Then rigorous mathematical methods are used to show that, under some seemingly possible conditions, there exist a unique vector of the relevant decision variables that solve the underlying inventory system. A numerical example which shows the applicability of the theoretical results is given.

    Description: The study aimed at investigating the conflict management styles used by nurse managers in the Sultanate of Oman. Conflict is inevitable in daily nursing work. Several styles are used to manage conflict situations. In previous studies conducted in Western countries, avoiding and compromising conflict management styles appear to be the first choices for the nurses. In Arab countries, no study to date has examined the conflict management styles used by nurse managers to compare with the results from studies conducted in Western countries. Survey. A questionnaire was distributed to all nurse managers working in the three-management levels from nine referral hospitals in Sultanate of Oman, 271 were returned, a response rate of 86%. The results were analysed using spss version 16. Nurse managers in Oman used all five conflict management styles, with integrating style as the first choice followed in order by compromising, obliging, dominating and avoiding. These results differ from the results of the studies conducted on nurses in other countries. The results of this study have implications for people who work in the hospitals, whether practitioners or policy makers. Recommendations are offered to improve nurse managers' work environment. Conflict can affect patient care if handled badly. Poorly handled conflict results in lower staff morale and poorer retention, both adversely affect patient care.

    Description: This article studies the monthly net job creation (NJC) at the aggregate and the sectoral levels in the United States over the period 1950 to 2011. The article has few important findings. First, NJC did not show a significant trend over the last six decades, which led to a fall in the NJC rate. Second, NJC was very volatile and it could change course even in the span of 1 month. Third, there was no clear pattern about the co-movement between NJC and the change in the unemployment rate. Fourth, the averages of total NJC and private NJC since late 2010 were significantly higher than their respective historical averages and the volatility in NJC since the end of the Great Recession was not unusual by historical standards. Fifth, while the evidence about the effects of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act on employment is inconclusive, some sectors appeared to benefit from it. Finally, the most frequent drop in the unemployment rate was by 0.1%, and drops of more than 0.2% should not be highly expected.

    Description: Primary scarring alopecia (SA) comprises a group of disorders with poorly defined origins. Improving diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities requires a better understanding of their pathogenesis. We sought to assess the frequency of sebaceous gland loss in SA and to identify the role of sebaceous gland and sebaceous gland duct inflammation in the pathogenesis of SA. Ninety specimens submitted with a clinical history of alopecia, both scarring and nonscarring, were reviewed. Samples were scored based on sebaceous gland, sebaceous duct, and follicle inflammation. Sebaceous gland loss was much more common in cases of SA (〉53% of follicles on average) than non-SA (〈5% of follicles on average). Many cases of SA showed residual affected follicles with an absence of sebaceous glands. Sebaceous gland duct inflammation was often more frequent and severe than gland inflammation in SA. Sample size was limited in some alopecia entities. Inflammation was graded by means of subjective observation. This study demonstrates that sebaceous gland loss is a common and early finding among SA. In addition, sebaceous gland and/or duct inflammation may play a role in initiating or accelerating follicular damage during the development of SA.

    Description: Apart from mass killings, 1·87 million civilians have been displaced internally to overloaded camps, placing excessive burdens on shelter, health care, sanitation, water, and food services. 1·1 million civilians have sought shelters as refugees in neighboring countries, mainly Uganda.1,2 Food insecurity has reached an unprecedented high; 4·8 million South Sudanese, roughly more than a third of the population, are facing severe food shortages.2 Global acute malnutrition rates have exceeded the emergency threshold of 15% malnourished population in seven of the country's ten states.3 In northern Bahr el Ghazal, the global acute malnutrition rate has doubled (33·3%) since December, 2013, and one in every three children under five years of age is acutely malnourished.4 As of Oct 14, 2016, the overall number of children with severe acute malnutrition was 362 077.4 The absence of clean water and proper sanitation has led to re-emergence of cholera outbreaks.

    Description: We sought to determine cardiovascular risk factor prevalence rates among adults in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. We used self-reported indicators, anthropometric measures, and blood tests to screen 50 ,138 adults aged 18 years or older taking part in a population-wide cardiovascular screening program. Participants' mean age was 36.82 years (SD = 14.3); 43% were men. Risk factor prevalence rates were as follows: obesity, 35%; overweight, 32%; central obesity, 55%; diabetes, 18%; prediabetes, 27%; dyslipidemia, 44%; and hypertension, 23.1%. In addition, 26% of men were smokers, compared with 0.8% of women. Age-standardized diabetes and prediabetes rates were 25% and 30%, respectively, and age-standardized rates of obesity and overweight were 41% and 34%. This population-wide cardiovascular screening program demonstrated a high cardiovascular burden for our small sample in Abu Dhabi. The data form a baseline against which interventions can be implemented and progress monitored as part of the population-wide Abu Dhabi Cardiovascular Disease Program.
