The previous year had ended in a military stalement, "sans que l'aube de la victoire se lève encore à l'horizon", as Marshal Joffre put it. The French had lost fifty percent of their officers with a total of 960,000 casualties. Reports from the war zones appeared regularly in the press, included in far-off Australia and New Zealand. They were eagerly awaited by readers anxious to know about distant warfront events in which they had a personal interest. Such reports, especially when reinforced by images like those published in the Sydney Mail, deepened a feeling of shared peril faces daily by Australian, French and other Allied troops. Snapshot and professional photographs of the Front appeared with increasing frequency, adding to the intensity. At the same time, it would have been difficult to think of these battles in terms of the way they were experienced by individual soldiers: this essay traces some of the realities of war and its effects as they were lived by man, Pierre Hédoin, and his family.]]> Wed 20 Jul 2016 15:14:52 EST ]]> Common risk factors for chronic non-communicable diseases among older adults in China, Ghana, Mexico, India, Russia and South Africa: the study on global AGEing and adult health (SAGE) wave 1 http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22891 Wed 20 Jul 2016 14:25:55 EST ]]> Tailoring therapies-improving the management of early breast cancer: St Gallen International Expert Consensus on the primary therapy of early breast cancer 2015 http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22889 Annals of Oncology online.]]> Wed 20 Jul 2016 13:22:58 EST ]]> Assessing customers' perceived value of the online channel of multichannel retailers: a two country examination http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22890 Wed 20 Jul 2016 13:22:56 EST ]]> Predicting the solid circulation rate in chemical looping combustion systems using pressure drop measurements http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22888 Wed 20 Jul 2016 13:01:56 EST ]]> Culture and communication: revealing limits to literacy-learning communication in Saudi children's home and kindergarten communities http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22768 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:48:23 EST ]]> Chinese indigenous values and corporate social responsibility: an exploratory study into the adoption of CSR principles in China http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22481 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:48:12 EST ]]> Communication as aid: giving voice to refugees on the Thai-Burma border http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22637 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:48:11 EST ]]> Cultural influences on the oral communication strategies used by pre-service teachers and teacher educators: an investigation of English medium classrooms in Central Mindanao, the Philippines http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22366 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:48:06 EST ]]> Coherence-based reasoning in Australian contract law adjudication with broad principles and detailed rules http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22507 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:48:03 EST ]]> Conflicts over natural resources and environment: a case of Tam Giang Lagoon in the Thua Thien Hue province, central coast of Vietnam http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22351 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:47:52 EST ]]> An investigation of transcriptional regulation of wall ingrowth formation in plant transfer cells http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22763 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:41:17 EST ]]> Cellular and molecular changes in the brain of the Hfe<sup>-/-</sup>xTfr2<sup>mut</sup> mouse, a model of human iron loading http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22505 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:41:09 EST ]]> Board independence and firm performance - the Hong Kong context http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22613 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:41:08 EST ]]> Child health care provider interventions to prevent secondhand smoke exposure in children http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22767 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:41:04 EST ]]> Cervical spine meniscoids and their potential role in neck pain and its management http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22769 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:40:52 EST ]]> Accepted wisdom about the politics of abortion and miscalculating the strength of civil rights http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22887 Wed 20 Jul 2016 12:05:59 EST ]]> The Nigerian integrated early childhood development policy: perspectives on literacy learning http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22885 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:51:53 EST ]]> Kinetics of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids when co-administered with saturated or omega-6 fats http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22886 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:51:52 EST ]]> Effect of 12 weeks high oleic peanut consumption on cardio-metabolic risk factors and body composition http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22884 vs. a nut free diet on adiposity and cardio-metabolic risk markers. In a randomised cross-over design, 61 healthy subjects (65 ± 7 years, body mass index (BMI) 31 ± 4 kg/m²) alternated either high oleic peanuts (15%-20% of energy) or a nut free diet for 12 weeks. Body composition and mass, waist circumference, C-reactive protein (CRP), lipids, glucose and insulin were assessed at baseline and after each phase. Repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) compared the two diets. Consistent with other nut studies, there were no differences in lipids, CRP, glucose and insulin with peanut consumption. In contrast, some reports have demonstrated benefits, likely due to differences in the study cohort. Energy intake was 10% higher (853 kJ, p < 0.05), following peanut consumption vs. control, attributed to a 30% increase in fat intake (p < 0.001), predominantly monounsaturated (increase 22 g, p < 0.05). Despite greater energy intake during the peanut phase, there were no differences in body composition, and less than predicted increase (0.5 kg) in body weight for this additional energy intake, possibly due to incomplete nutrient absorption and energy utilisation.]]> Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:37:56 EST ]]> Food habits, lifestyle factors and mortality among oldest old Chinese: the Chinese Longitudinal Healthy Longevity Survey (CLHLS) http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22883 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:30:56 EST ]]> An investigation into the willingness and ability of Australian radiographers to interpret screening mammograms http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22640 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:10:16 EST ]]> An investigation into relationships among neural, vascular and osseous factors in the diabetic foot http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22867 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:10:12 EST ]]> Aeschylus as oral performance: rhythm, structure, and meaning in the Persians http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22629 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:03:34 EST ]]> An experimental investigation of unsaturated clay: volume change and microstructural considerations http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22576 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:03:33 EST ]]> A validity framework theory and fatigue damage function for an S–N plane http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22334 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:03:10 EST ]]> Airmanship in Australian aviation http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22625 Wed 20 Jul 2016 11:03:04 EST ]]> A study of the retirement investment asset allocation and planned retirement age of the Hong Kong middle-class http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22473 Wed 20 Jul 2016 10:56:53 EST ]]> A social psychological examination of factors shaping career and education aspirations through childhood and adolescence http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22463 Wed 20 Jul 2016 10:56:32 EST ]]> A systematic review of evidence based treatments for conduct disorder in adolescents: are they aligned with the developmental pathways research for conduct disorder: towards a more effective treatment model http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22517 Wed 20 Jul 2016 10:56:31 EST ]]> "One street two systems" -

The IL-1beta-511C/T polymorphism was genotyped in 638 male patients with chronic schizophrenia (smoker/never-smoker=486/152) and 469 male controls (smoker/never-smoker=243/226). The cigarettes smoked per day, the Heaviness of Smoking Index (HSI) and the Fagerstrom Test for nicotine dependence (FTND) were assessed. Patients were also rated on the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS). The results showed no significant differences in genotype and allele distribution between patients and controls, and between smokers and never-smokers in either the patient or control group. However, in patients, smokers with the C/C genotype had significantly higher HSI (p<0.005) and FTND (p<0.05) scores than smokers with the T/T genotype, without significant differences in controls. Furthermore, there was a linear positive correlation between the number of C alleles and the HSI (p<0.005) in patients. Our findings suggest that the IL-1beta-511C/T polymorphism may not be related to schizophrenia or smoking status in Chinese individuals, but may affect the severity of nicotine dependence among male smokers with schizophrenia.]]> Mon 18 Jul 2016 14:34:29 EST ]]> Poor utility of grading scales in acute intracerebral hemorrhage: results from the INTERACT2 trial http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22862 Mon 18 Jul 2016 14:27:23 EST ]]> Legalizing physician-assisted suicide and/or euthanasia: pragmatic implications http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22860 Mon 18 Jul 2016 14:20:29 EST ]]> A preliminary study to develop an intervention to facilitate communication between couples in advanced cancer http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22861 Mon 18 Jul 2016 14:20:27 EST ]]> Measurement and modelling of the apparent shear resistance for aerated fine powders http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22858 50 <100 μm) behave analogously to liquids when aerated by air. Hence, methods (e.g. Couette method) used to determine the flow performance of liquids can be adopted to investigate the similar flow properties (e.g. apparent shear resistance) of aerated powders. By this means, the understanding and handling techniques for aerated fine powders can be significantly enhanced. This research aims to investigate the apparent shear resistance of aerated fine powders through a specialised viscometer. Such a viscometer is combined with a fluidisation system and a common rotary viscometer. Three types of fine powders (alumina, cement and flyash) were selected as testing materials. Experimental results indicated that aerated fine powders behave similarly to Herschel–Bulkley non-Newtonian fluids. Subsequently, the apparent shear resistance for three fine powders were modelled by modifying the original Herschel–Bulkley rheology model. Consequently, the apparent shear resistance of a specific aerated powder can be measured and modelled using the bench scale system developed in this study, thus can be utilised to predict the flow performance of fine powders in pneumatic conveyors.]]> Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:53:46 EST ]]> Power spectral density analysis of pressure fluctuation in pneumatic conveying of powders http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22859 Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:53:46 EST ]]> Effects of a curricular physical activity intervention on children's school performance, wellness, and brain development http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22857 Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:46:31 EST ]]> Dissecting the signaling pathways that mediate cancer in PTEN and LKB1 double-knockout mice http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22856 PTEN and LKB1 - genes encoding phosphatase and tensin homolog and liver kinase B1, respectively - leads to the spontaneous development of cancer in mice. PTEN converts phosphatidylinositol (3,4,5)-trisphosphate (PIP3) to phosphatidylinositol (4,5)-bisphosphate (PIP2), whereas LKB1 activates the 5' adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK). The kinase AKT and the kinase complex mTORC1 may play key roles in carcinogenesis and are components of signaling pathways that also contain PTEN and LKB1. We propose that via activation of AKT and mTORC1, the double knockout of PTEN and LKB1 contributes to distinct cell-specific aspects of tumor development and progression. Whereas mTORC1 promotes cancer initiation and progression through cell growth, survival, and proliferation, independent induction of the immune inhibitory molecule PD-L1 by activated AKT enables the tumors to evade immunosurveillance.]]> Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:46:30 EST ]]> Directional and temporal variation of the mechanical properties of robocast scaffold during resorption http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22854 ® scaffolds. These structures can be used as 3rd generation implants in tissue engineering to support the regrowth of damaged tissue, in particular bone. After successful tissue regeneration the scaffolds slowly dissolve leaving no foreign material permanently inside the body. However, to avoid mechanical separation from surrounding tissue they must exhibit similar mechanical properties. The present study introduces a detailed numerical study focusing on the determination of effective mechanical material properties, their anisotropy, and mechanical degradation due to scaffold resorption. In order to accurately capture the complex scaffold geometry, micro-computed tomography scans of actual samples are conducted. The resulting three-dimensional data are directly converted into finite element calculation models. Numerical compressive tests of these unmodified models are repeated for three perpendicular directions to investigate mechanical anisotropy, after which the effect of scaffold degradation due to exposure to body fluid is simulated. To this end, two different resorption models, namely surface erosion and bulk degradation, are applied to the micro-computed tomography data. The modified geometry data are then converted into calculation models and numerical compression tests then allow the prediction of the mechanical properties of partially resorbed scaffolds.]]> Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:46:23 EST ]]> Electrical maturation of spinal neurons in the human fetus: comparison of ventral and dorsal horn http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22855 Mon 18 Jul 2016 11:46:23 EST ]]> Heritability of young- and old-onset ischaemic stroke http://novaprd-lb.newcastle.edu.au:8080/vital/access/manager/Repository/uon:22849 P < 0.001) and 34% (±10%, P < 0.001), respectively.

Women who achieved their weight control goals consumed significantly more daily fruit servings (+0.76 servings/day, P = 0.02) and less meat/meat alternatives (-0.34 servings/day, P < 0.01) than women who did not achieve weight control. The lack of changes in physical activity indicates that more emphasis may need to be placed on promoting physical activity.
