Prospective reimbursement (PR) programs attempt to restrain increases in hospital expenditures by establishing, in advance of a hospital's fiscal year, limits on the reimbursement the hospital will receive for the services it provides to patients. We used data complied from a sample of approximately 2700 community hospitals in the U.S. for each year from(More)
We are very excited to introduce the official launch of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—Global Open (PRS GO), the first companion journal to Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (PRS) since its inception date in 1946. In May 2012, the PRS Editors, PRS Section Editors, leadership of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and Journal editorial(More)

Research on terror-management theory has shown that after mortality salience (MS) people attempt to live up to cultural values. But cultures often value very different and sometimes even contradictory standards, leading to difficulties in predicting behavior as a consequence of terror-management needs. The authors report 4 studies to demonstrate that the(More)
We give new observations on the mixing dynamics of a continuous-time quantum walk on circulants and their bunkbed extensions. These bunkbeds are defined through two standard graph operators: the join G + H and the Cartesian product G ⊕ H of graphs G and H. Our results include the following: • The quantum walk is average uniform mixing on circulants with(More)
Prior terror management research shows that mortality salience (MS) motivates both self-esteem striving and worldview bolstering. The present research examined these processes in the context of dating preferences. It was hypothesized that in short-term romantic contexts, MS-induced self-esteem striving motivates interest in dating a physically attractive(More)
Axonal injury represents a critical target area for the prevention and treatment of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries. Finite element (FE) models of the head and/or brain are often used to predict brain injury caused by external mechanical loadings, such as explosive waves and direct impact. The accuracy of these numerical models depends on correctly(More)
Accusations of unjust harm doing by the ingroup threaten the group's moral identity. One strategy for restoring ingroup moral identity after such a threat is competitive victimhood: claiming the ingroup has suffered compared with the harmed outgroup. Men accused of harming women were more likely to claim that men are discriminated against compared with(More)
This paper reports preliminary findings from the National Hospital Rate-Setting Study regarding the effects of State prospective reimbursement (PR) programs on measures of payroll costs and employment in hospitals. PR effects were estimated through reduced-form equations, using American Hospital Association Annual Survey data on over 2,700 hospitals from(More)
PURPOSE Ixazomib is an investigational proteasome inhibitor with demonstrated antitumor activity in xenograft models of multiple myeloma (MM), lymphoma, and solid tumors. This open-label, phase 1 study investigated intravenous (IV) ixazomib, in adult patients with advanced non-hematologic malignancies. METHODS Patients received IV ixazomib twice-weekly(More)
