Technologies that make it harder for people to abuse opioids - like doctoring pills so that they produce unpleasant side effects if broken, crushed or injected -- likely will have limited effectiveness in stemming the global epidemic of opioid abuse,
The research featured in this special section focuses on children's development across a wide range of global contexts and caregiving settings. They examine strategies through which children begin to understand and adopt the practices, beliefs, and values of their societies.
Dr. Ben Choi, associate professor of computer science at Louisiana Tech University, will present his research on a groundbreaking new technology that has the potential to revolutionize the computing industry during a keynote speech next month at the International Conference on Measurement Instrumentation and Electronics.
Classroom teachers may not employ the strategies that can help students master complex written language, according to speech-language pathology researchers at University of the Pacific.
A new study analyzing a nationally representative US sample of 19,162 children, has found that frequent residential moves can lead to a decline in academic performance as well as higher rates of emotional and behavioral problems.
Vocal fatigue is a common complaint among teachers and one of the most debilitating conditions that can lead to vocal damage. The typical symptoms include hoarseness, vocal tiredness, muscle pains and lost or cracked notes. However, the actual physiological mechanism of vocal fatigue is still being explored. Now, a group of researchers have found a potential link between pulmonary function and the symptoms of voice fatigue unique to women, the predominate population of teaching workforce.
More kids in your family. Less education. This pattern isn't new, but a team of researchers led by BYU sociology professor Ben Gibbs studied why that educational dip occurs and found that there are exceptions to the trend.
Parents struggling to find and afford therapy for their child with autism may eventually be able to provide that therapy themselves with the help of telehealth training.
A five-week obesity prevention program for seventh grade students in Southern California helped obese students lose weight over a long-term period. The average reduction in body mass index (BMI) measured for obese students of average height two years later when they entered high school translated into about nine pounds lower bodyweight.
Using biaxial tensile tests scientists compared mechanical properties of the skins of two sweet cherry cultivars. Assays confirmed that cracking was less rapid and occurred at higher water uptake in 'Regina' than in 'Burlat.' Tensile tests revealed that 'Regina' skin was stiffer and had a higher pressure at fracture than 'Burlat.' Results suggested that cell wall physical (and possibly also chemical) properties account for cultivar differences in skin mechanical properties, and thus in cracking susceptibility.
