There are works from all corners of the world throughout the building. This is particularly true in a digital age that makes such records much more accessible to potential employers, landlords and others. Individuals there received information about the research, then had the chance to participate in a to minute interview while waiting to begin the expungement process. During the research period, summer , Drs.
Loeffler and Ispa-Landa spoke to 53 men and women ages 17 to 60 from a range of backgrounds. The researchers gathered information on how criminal records intersected with factors such as housing, education and employment. They found individuals with a criminal record faced challenges in finding employment no matter the extent or seriousness of the record.
Loeffler said. The researchers hypothesize the reason is twofold: One, employers can more easily find criminal records than ever before. Rather than needing to visit a physical location for this information, they can access it online. Second, larger national corporations do a significant amount of entry-level hiring, and it is likely the organizations with across-the-board guidelines that work against someone in this situation. According to Dr. Loeffler, understanding how individuals experience living with a criminal record today can help inform contemporary policy conversations like Ban the Box and automatic expungement provisions designed to minimize collateral consequences of contact with the criminal justice system.
The elderly and those with milder stroke symptoms were also less likely to receive intravenous tPA, a drug which has been shown to significantly improve chances of cure from stroke disability, after arriving at a hospital. Researchers conducted a retrospective study of over 61, ischemic stroke patients in the United States between and who arrived at a hospital within two hours after the start of symptoms and had no documented reasons that they could not receive the treatment.
Treatment rates did, however, improve dramatically over time. Additional patient-specific factors associated with non-treatment included history of carotid stenosis, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes mellitus, heart attacks, presence of a prosthetic heart valve and not presenting to the hospital via EMS. The researchers also found, as did previous reports, that people who were treated at hospitals certified as stroke centers were more likely to receive treatment than those at hospitals without the certification, with those at primary stroke centers having nearly twice the odds of receiving tPA.
Patients not treated with tPA presented to hospitals that had a smaller number of beds, were less often teaching hospitals or Joint Commission—certified primary stroke centers, and had fewer annual ischemic stroke admissions, the authors found. The study is among the first to examine the way warning labels on sugary drinks affect teens, and builds on research published by the team earlier this year showing that parents were less likely to select sugary beverages for their kids when the drinks had labels warning about the dangers of added sugar, including increased risk of obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.
The researchers used an online survey to determine beverage selections of more than 2, participants aged and from diverse backgrounds. The beverages included either no label, or one of five warning labels. Among the labels, one featured calorie content and the other four displayed a variation of warning text indicating that consumption of sugary drinks contributes to obesity, diabetes and tooth decay.
Leff led a team that has demonstrated it is possible to turn that influence into a positive force for pro-social behavior not only among relationally aggressive girls themselves, but among their classmates and teachers. The researchers studied the classroom impact of their behavioral intervention, called Friend to Friend F2F , that is targeted to ethnic minority girls in third through fifth grades in urban schools, after a randomized clinical trial of the program. It encourages girls to give others the benefit of the doubt and consider their choices in social settings.
They compared classroom climate in classes where a subgroup of girls had participated in F2F with control classrooms where the eligible subgroup of girls at risk for relational aggression received an educationally-based group intervention focused on homework and study skills. In classes of girls who received the F2F intervention, boys and girls uninvolved in the small-group sessions received higher peer ratings in friendship and nice behaviors and improved closeness with their teachers than those in the classes whose relationally aggressive girls received a homework intervention.
Boys in the F2F classes also received lower scores on negative behaviors including rumor spreading, exclusion, and fighting, and lower teacher conflict scores. Leff and Paskewich recommend that, even for aggressive girls who are not enrolled in a formal program like F2F, teachers and parents can help build pro-social skills by looking for positive teachable moments and reinforcing social behaviors when they catch kids behaving well.
Leff said. When appropriate, look for opportunities for leadership, such as mentoring younger girls, or talking about when they resolved a situation in a positive way.
