This study investigated components of caregiving that cause distress among Parkinson's caregivers and explored relationships between stress and family functioning. Fifty caregivers completed two self-report measures designed to assess caregiver stress and characteristics of the family environment. Differences in terms of family environment were found(More)
Three experiments were conducted to determine the nitrogen (N) requirement of the young kitten. The feline basal diet contained minimal requirement levels of each indispensable amino acid (IAA) to comprise a total dietary N concentration of 2.52% and an IAA N to dispensable amino acid (DAA) N ratio (I/D) of 0.70. In experiments 1 and 2, both the dietary N(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore sleep risk factors and their association with adverse events in transportation operators. METHODS Self-reported sleep-related behaviors were analyzed in transportation operators (drivers, pilots, and rail operators) aged 26 to 78 years who completed the National Sleep Foundation's 2012 "Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Sleep" survey.(More)
Self-efficacy, indicators of distress (state anxiety and frequency of physical symptoms), help-seeking (visits to the campus health center, an outside physician, and a counselor), and two measures of person-environment (P-E) fit were assessed on 152 college students and examined in a LISREL model. The two P-E fit measures were perceived discrepancy, the(More)
Although a higher surgical degree is considered de rigeur for trainees aspiring to the senior registrar grade in general surgery (2,7,4) the same does not appear to be true of orthopaedic surgery. Fifty of 51 registrars and senior registrars in orthopaedic surgery in the North East Thames Region completed a carefully structured and confidential(More)
Growth assays and nitrogen balance trials were conducted in an attempt to estimate requirements for threonine, isoleucine, valine and leucine. Weanling kittens were fed a basal purified diet containing 27% crystalline L-amino acids and 4,700 kcal metabolizable energy per kilogram diet. Based upon rate and efficiency of growth, and upon urinary nitrogen(More)
A 60-item Q-sort that represented 12 "curative factors" regarded as crucial to the efficacy of psychotherapeutic groups by Yalom (1970) was administered to volunteer undergraduate participants after the end of 20-hour (2 hours weekly) personal growth groups. The Q-sort items were ranked very similarly for Helpfulness in the group experience by the growth(More)
Growth assays were conducted to estimate the minimal dietary requirement levels of histidine, tryptophan, phenylalanine and tyrosine for the young kitten. Dietary concentrations of histidine and tryptophan of .30 and .15%, respectively, were found to support optimal kitten performance. A preliminary study of the total aromatic amino acid (TAAA) requirement(More)
