International evidence suggests that educational reform's progress depends on teachers' individual and collective capacity and its link with school-wide capacity for promoting pupils' learning. Building capacity is therefore critical. Capacity is a complex blend of motivation, skill, positive learning, organisational conditions and culture, and(More)
Ionizing radiation induces p53-dependent apoptosis in the spleen, providing a model system to study p53 regulated events in a normal cell type. We have developed an in vivo model that identifies genetic differences in the regulation of p53-mediated apoptosis and addresses whether altered post-translational events in the p53-p21/Rb axis modulate the(More)
This article describes data from 4,111 males and 4,085 females participating in 10 HIV/AIDS service demonstration projects. The sample was diverse in age, gender, ethnicity, HIV status, and risk for HIV transmission. Logistic regression was used to determine the attributes that best predict substance abuse. Males who were younger; HIV positive; homeless;(More)
The Indiana Youth Access Project (IYAP) is supported by the Special Projects of National Significance Program, Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) Bureau, Health Resources and Services Administration. The IYAP is a model HIV care program being developed at the Indiana Youth Group, Inc. (IYG) in conjunction with the(More)
We document causes of death in free-ranging California Condors (Gymnogyps californianus) from the inception of the reintroduction program in 1992 through December 2009 to identify current and historic mortality factors that might interfere with establishment of self-sustaining populations in the wild. A total of 135 deaths occurred from October 1992 (the(More)
This paper uses confirmatory structural equation models to develop and test a theoretical model for understanding the service utilization history of 4679 youth who received services from 10 national HIV/AIDS demonstration models of youth-appropriate and youth-attractive services funded by the Special Projects of National Significance (SPNS) Program,(More)
OBJECTIVES To present the baseline patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) in the Prostate Testing for Cancer and Treatment (ProtecT) randomized trial comparing active monitoring, radical prostatectomy and external-beam conformal radiotherapy for localized prostate cancer and to compare results with other populations. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of(More)
N ASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) provides communications and other services for planetary exploration missions as well as other missions beyond geostationary orbit, supporting both NASA and international users. It also constitutes a scientific facility in its own right, conducting radar investigations of the moon and planets, in addition to radio science(More)
Over 8,000 adolescents and young adults (4,111 males; 4,085 females) reported on several HIV-related risk behaviors during enrollment into 10 service demonstration projects targeted to youth living with, or at risk for, HIV. Distinct risk patterns emerged by gender when predicting HIV serostatus (versus unknown serostatus/negative serostatus). Males who had(More)
