General strain theory (Agnew 1992) departs from traditional strain theories by emphasizing the role of the individual\'s affective responses to negative life experiences in fostering deviant behavior. In this analysis, we examine the central hypotheses of general strain theory using data from a three-wave panel study of high school youths in the Boston metropolitan area (N = 939). Covariance structure models reveal that anger and hostility in response to negative life events do play a causal role in fostering more aggressive forms of delinquency, but are not significantly related to either nonaggressive delinquency or marijuana use. Among smokers who smoke while driving, 20.9% smoke in cars carrying children. Overall, 79.6% of Italians (88.2% non-smokers and 48.8% current smokers) support a ban on smoking in cars, and 92.5% (95.0% non-smokers and 83.5% current smokers) support such a ban in cars carrying children.CONCLUSIONS: Despite the high percentage of smokers who smoke in private vehicles, the majority of the Italian population (including smokers) support the introduction of a smoking ban in cars, particularly in cars carrying children. Smoke-free laws should therefore be extended to private vehicles, particularly if they are carrying children. [Lancet. 2014]New oral anticoagulants in patients with atrial fibrillation.Opstelten W, van den Donk M, Kuijpers T, Burgers JS. Lancet. BACKGROUND: within hospitals, bedside blood glucose measurements are widely used for investigating suspected hyper- or hypoglycemia, monitoring diabetes, and adjusting glucose-lowering medication. Numerous point-of-care glucose meters are available, but for large hospitals using the same meter in all nike Air Jordan settings has practical and economic advantages. This investigation sought to identify a meter that was accurate, precise, and free from interferences, making it air Jordans Australia suitable for use across all ages and diseases.METHODS: lithium-heparinized whole blood was analyzed, Air Jordan Australia under various conditions, on the HemoCue Glucose 201 (Hemocue AB, Ängelhom, Sweden), Accu-Chek Performa (Roche Diagnostics, Basel Switzerland) (using the newly reformulated maltose-insensitive strips), and Optium (Abbott Diabetes, Alameda, CA, USA) glucose meters and compared with plasma glucose measurements on the Vitros 5,1 FS analyzer (Ortho Clinical Diagnostics, Neckargemund, Germany).RESULTS: biases of 3.2%, -5.8%, and -8% were found with Accu-Chek, Optium, and HemoCue, respectively. PURPOSE: jordan Shoes Australia To explore the extent to which U.S. Research institutions are meeting or exceeding National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation mandates to provide instruction in responsible conduct of research (RCR).METHOD: In summer 2011, the authors sent an e-mail survey to officials responsible for overseeing RCR instructional programs at the 200 top-funded research institutions in the United States and Puerto Rico. They cross-classified the proportions exceeding federal mandates by the types of additional individuals required to receive training and by medical school presence/absence.RESULTS: Responses were received from 144 institutions (72%); all had an RCR program.
