BACKGROUND Physical Activity Across the Curriculum (PAAC) was a three-year cluster randomized controlled trial to promote physical activity and diminish increases in overweight and obesity in elementary school children. METHODS Twenty-four elementary schools were cluster randomized to the Physical Activity Across the Curriculum intervention or served as(More)
Overweight and obesity affects more than 66% of the adult population and is associated with a variety of chronic diseases. Weight reduction reduces health risks associated with chronic diseases and is therefore encouraged by major health agencies. Guidelines of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) encourage a 10% reduction in weight,(More)
TPC-DS is a new decision support benchmark currently under development by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (TPC). This paper provides a brief overview of the new benchmark. The benchmark models the decision support functions of a retail product supplier, including data loading, multiple types of queries and data maintenance. The database(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary purpose of this study was to examine the construct validity of a continuous metabolic syndrome score (cMetS) in children. The secondary purpose was to identify a cutpoint value(s) for an adverse cMetS based on receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis. METHODS 378 children aged 7 to 9 years were assessed for the(More)

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of combining exercise with omega-3 fatty acids (n-3fa) supplementation on lipoprotein subfractions and associated enzymes. Subjects were 10 recreationally active males, aged 25 +/- 1.5 years (mean +/- SE), who supplemented n-3fa (60% eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and 40% docosahexaenoic [DHA]) at 4 g/d for 4(More)
A novel experimental technique known as non-equilibrium response spectroscopy (NRS) based on ion channel responses to rapidly fluctuating voltage waveforms was recently described (Millonas & Hanck, 1998a). It was demonstrated that such responses can be affected by subtle details of the kinetics that are otherwise invisible when conventional stepped pulses(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the effects of low versus recommended levels of dairy intake on weight maintenance and body composition subsequent to weight loss. DESIGN AND METHODS Two site (University of Kansas-KU; University of Tennessee-UT), 9 month, randomized trial. Weight loss was baseline to 3 months, weight maintenance was 4 to 9 months. Participants were(More)
