One-on-one interviews and focus-group meetings were held at 20 organizations that had implemented a behavior-based safety (BBS) process in order to find reasons for program successes/failures. A total of 31 focus groups gave 629 answers to six different questions. A content analysis of these responses uncovered critical information for understanding what(More)
The plasminogen activator content of the extracts of excise prostate cancers (25 specimens) was determined with an azocasein assay and found to be on the average 1.7 times higher than that of extracts of excised prostate benign hyperplasias (29 specimens). Both groups contained the same average percentage of human urokinase type activator (approximately(More)
The binding of epsilon-amino[14C]caproic acid (6-aminohexanoic acid, EACA) to native human plasminogen was determined using the ultrafiltration technique of Paulus (Paulus, H. (1969) Anal. Biochem. 32, 91-100) at free ligand concentrations ranging from 2 micrometer to 16 mM. One strong binding site (Kd = 0.009 mM) and approximately five weaker ones (Kd = 5(More)
Overall, the results of this research demonstrated the effectiveness of behavior-based safety (BBS) interventions for increasing safe work behaviors and reducing injuries. Without exception, organizations participating in our research realized an improvement in their safety records after implementing a BBS process. Such success, however, was not always(More)
Event extraction is a key step in many text-mining applications such as question-answering, information extraction and summarization systems. In this study we used conditional random field (CRF) to extract causal events from PubMed articles related to Geriatric care. Abstracts of geriatric care domain were manually reviewed and categorized into 42 different(More)
