When I am trying to draw a polyhedral by clicking on 'Polyhedral' Style in VESTA Software, it is not changing. It seems like this option is jammed. Even when in the properties -> Polyhedra, all the options are disabled.
All the other styles (Ball-and-stick, Space-filling, Wireframe, Stick) are properly working. But when I am clicking on the Polyhedra option, it brings Ball-and-stick style to the structure.
I have also reinstalled the software. But the problem is still the same.
How can I enable the polyhedral option in VESTA?

Disability sport researchers, please join us in initialing ideas for establishing a society for disability sport studies. I am Tiao, a Ph.D. student in Sport Administration at the University of Houston, my research is housed in disability sport marketing and sponsorship in Adaptive Athletic Lab under Dr. Michael Cottingham. Through almost a decade, the lab/Dr. Cottingham has worked with colleagues from disciplines across the spectrum including medicine, kinesiology, sport management, adaptive physical activity, recreation, economics, communications, and cultural studies programs. In realizing that we often do similar work from different angles and frequently cite each other’s work with the shared passion in building the scholarship in disability sport, a collective need to establish a society for disability sport studies is revealing itself and now we are generating interest/support to make it come true! This society would allow people with the shared context to coordinate together better, to share and disseminate ideas and resources. Whether it is a conference, a journal, or something else entirely, the first step is collecting a list of names of people who might be interested to be involved with this project. So, please take a minute to fill out the survey if you are one of us and share this with people in Disability Sport Research. Thank you! https://lnkd.in/gCPQMsQA

Please follow these steps to understand my problem -
1) Open mph file I have attached.
2) Perform compute. After its completion, go to results, 1D Plot Group, Global. You will see the graph of current vs time. If its not there, please choose current through external I vs U 1 for y-axis data. Take a snapshot of the graph. (Case 1)
3) Now disable the magnetic and electric fields (mef) physics. Again compute, go to 1D plot group and take a snapshot of current vs time graph. (Case 2)
4) Now, enable the mef physics. Again compute and observe the current vs time graph. (Case 3)
Definitely the current vs time plot will be different for case 1 and case 2. But Case 1 and Case 3 should have provided the same results. However, when you will compare the graphs in case 1 and case 3, they have huge differences. Please give some advice on how to resolve it, or provide its solution.
If you will click on compute once again, and again observe current vs time (case 4), you will observe case 4 and case 3 have same plots. But I want case 1 also to give the same results, so that I can accurately have plots with and without magnetic fields interface.

Answer
This is a surprisingly tricky question whose answer will depend wholly on how you're defining the limits of the traveler, the nature of the systems available, and the scale at which you are working. Two major types of limits include the visual and those involving physical mobility. The former cannot drive and the latter cannot walk without some form of motorized or manual chair. Some systems will have buses that easily accept wheelchairs and others that do not. So I think you need a dataset that has at least three categories--(1) no inconvenience (2) inconvenience (3) impossible. Can a route change, if by foot/chair, add time but still permit travel? And if we are discussing car routes can a bus or taxi be substituted for a motor vehicle (that would make income levels important)?
So it may not be easy as a simple statistic (GWR), or autocorrelation (no matter one's monies, barriers add to expenses).
See my chapter in Ethics in Everyday Places on the issues surrounding physical limits and access to the London Transit system as an example of a study of broad transportation deficits attendant to physical limits. Others have taken micro approaches, for example on a university campus what routes are available to people with limits and do alternate routes based on personal limits make travel more time consuming or impossible (if, for example, the destination building has stairs but no other access).

Question

The cross-cultural adaptation of a health status questionnaire or tool for use in a new country, culture, and/or language requires a unique methodology in order to reach equivalence between the original source and target languages. It is now recognized that if measures are to be used across cultures, the items must not only be translated well linguistically, but also be adapted culturally to maintain the content validity of the instrument across different cultures. In this way, we can be more confident that we are describing the impact of a disease or its treatment in a similar manner in multi-national trials or outcome evaluations. The term "cross-cultural adaptation” is used to encompass a process which looks at both language (translation) and cultural adaptation issues in the process of preparing a questionnaire for use in another setting (Hill et al. & Kirwan et al.cited Beaton’s et al. 2000). The process of cross-cultural adaptation strives to produce equivalency based on content. This suggests the other statistical properties such as internal consistency, validity and reliability might be retained. However, this is not necessarily the case. For example, if the new culture has a different way of doing a task included within a disability scale that makes it inherently more or less difficult to do relative to other items in the scale, the validity would likely change particularly in terms of item-level analyses (such as item response theory, Rasch). Further testing should be done on an adapted questionnaire to verify the psychometric properties. What's your opinion?

Three years old girl diagnosed with Mutations in GNB1 which causes severe neurodevelopmental disability, hypotonia, and seizures. The child is restless and crying constantly, especially after seizures attack. The parents are convinced that the child is suffering of pain. Till now, physician have tried NSAIDs, and cannabis (both high CBD, or balanced THC and CBD).
What would you suggest for pain control? We were about to start opioids but still uncertain.
Relevant answer
Answer
Boaz Samolsky Dekel, thanks for your reply. What a difficult situation. I suppose the neurologist is using vigabatrin monotherapy under the consideration of the case falling generally under West syndrome, for which it seems like vigabatrin is the first line treatment (not sure why).
I was thinking of baclofen because it tends to have per-patient beneficial effects unrelated to its antispasmodic action, such as for neuralgia while having a low side effect profile. One can speculate that the pain is related to neuropathy-like effects owing to etiology of the receptor mutation, so baclofen or pregabalin may make sense, if only abstractly. Both have anticonvulsant effect, as well, especially pregabalin. You mentioned GERD, and baclofen does actually seems to be quite effective for this and by reducing gastric secretion. Some contraindication may exist with vigabatrin, though, and this is probably the consideration with any additional medicine with a potential depressant profile.
Anyway, opioids do seem to reduce seizure threshold, as you say. However, it's not clear to what degree or under what circumstances, as far as I know. Perhaps some opioids have a worse profile for seizures than others owing to delta or kappa occupancy, but I think dwelling on these details is probably of more academic rather than practical consideration - there are limited options, really. Problematic agents like Demerol aside.
I think the buprenorphine patch makes the most sense - no first pass metabolism may be especially relevant in term of polypharmacy here. Pain relief is a priority but I guess the parents need to understand the risks of opioids especially in hypotonia. It's very difficult to predict. Maybe pregabalin will be beneficial, in any case.

Since the question asked is related to public space and services, yes it does affect the mindset of specific group being discriminated and it could be an intentional (state sponsored) act or unintentionally (by general public). The issue highlighted is prevailing in both developed and developing countries. The situation is worst in developing or under-developed regions where economy also play an important role. In worst cases, this discrimination results into hatred, anti-state retaliation and anarchy in the society. For explanation I want to refer to some examples and wish to include China, India and Pakistan.
The recent revocation of special status of Kashmir in India (as explained in article 370 of Indian constitution) and introduction of Muslim discriminated citizenship bill is damaging Indian economy to large extent. Both state and Muslim community have different narratives but you may consider it in your study.
About China, Uighur Muslims camps in Xinjiang, province is another example. ( https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-50511063 )
In Pakistan, after 9/11 when the initially known Mujahideen forces (trained and armed during soviet's Afghan invasion) later called Taliban with movement known as TTP (Tehrik e Taliban Pakistan) majorly consist of Pashtoon/Paktoon ethnic group widely populated in Afghan-Pakistan border areas were started being discriminate in other part of country, such as in news papers their cartoons were published to indirectly sent the message that this complete ethnic group is actually Taliban (Taliban is generalized to be pastoons) that is totally wrong. Anyway, this group is not considered an ethnic minority but again their movements were restricted in many part of Pakistan due to potential terrorist attack although recently security situation improves. ( https://www.dw.com/en/pashtuns-rise-up-against-war-taliban-and-pakistani-military/a-43309299 )
Another ethnic minority group called "Hazara" situated in Baluchistan province of Pakistan is being discriminate and even mass murdered since past few years due to their religious believe and ethnicity. The people of this community cannot use normal transport inside Quetta and other part of province. Public transporters don't allow them inside their buses due to potential threat of any terrorist attack. They directly excuse by referring, we cannot put the life of other passengers on risk. There movement is limited and they cannot do business in open market as recently most of the businessman from this community is targeted and killed. In past ten years about 100,000 members of this community migrated to Australia, Europe etc to seek asylum. The complete area is surrounded by security forces for past 6-7 years and its hard to say either the presence of security forces for this long period is for the protection or ... For more details, you may refer to
The above mentioned analysis is my personnel opinion and I apologize if it hurts sentiment of any specific group/community. I am not sure if I answered the question asked appropriately.

To conduct a study with people with severe/profound intellectual (and multiple) disabilities, it is important to ensure that the participating persons actually meet these sample criteria. -> From an international perspective, what are the most common ways/assessments/approaches to achieve this? Based on a little literature review, there are three possibilities:
  1. Questioning the direct support persons about their estimation within an open interview.
  2. Questioning the direct support person with a (semi-)structured interview/questionnaire (e.g. Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales -> Arthur-Kelly et al. 2017; Mechling & Bishop 2011; Lancioni et al. 2015).
  3. Direct testing (e.g. Bayley Scales or Kent Infant Development -> Nijs et al. 2016).
(In terms of an assessment/questionnaire, it would be great if there were an English and a German version.) I am really interested in your feedback and your experiences.

I'm working on rehabilitative programs to promote adaptive behaviors in individuals with severe to profound developmental disabilities and multiple disabilities. I usually use the VABS to assess the severity of the disability and found it valid and reliable. Accordingly, I feel that the VABS constitutes a solid way to evaluate multiple disabilities. I wonder whether a german version is actually available in the literature.

The additive would need to be inert and not offer any microbicidal/microstatic effect. The goal here would be to use traidional micro methods to enumerated CMC bioload.
The gelling property makes it quite difficult to use these almost-exclusively aquoeus methods with satisfactory results. Additionally, the gelling property also disables the tester from using enough of a CMC sample mass to be meaningful, as anything more than, say, 0.25 g in 40-50 mL of water-based buffer/media risks gelling (and therefore potential corruption of the method). Even if a count can be obtained, it's not practical to assume that the 0.25-gram sample that was tested represents the bioload of a 50-lb drum of CMC.
Disabling the gelling, while not disabling the viable microbes it harbors, would theoretically allow for traditional methods on meaningful sample sizes.
Relevant answer
Answer
NaCMC in solution gels because unsubstituted blocks of cellulose along the backbone act as 'stickers' or temporary cross-linkers between chains. Additives that reverse gelling do so by solubilising these unsubstituted blocks. Therefore you would need to use Cadoxen, Cuoxam, 0.5M NaOH or some other cellulose solvent. All these solvents very likely have microbicidal effects which you wish to avoid.
Alternatively, you could use a highly substituted NaCMC grade (DS > 1.2), which have uniform substitution along the backbone (i.e. no unsubstituted blocks) and therefore do not gel. Most CMC manufacturers offer grades with DS ≈ 1.2 and Mw ≈ 250 kg/mol.
In the following publications, you can find more information about the gelation mechanism of NaCMC:

Hi all, thanks for your help in advance.
I have several health measures relating to pain that are included in a study I am working on. In case it's important, they are the following:
· Numerical rating scale for back pain
· Inflammatory back pain questionnaire
· Oswestry Disability Index
· Non arthritic hip score (NAHS)
· Knee osteoarthritis outcome score (KOOS)
· Disability arm shoulder hand (DASH) questionnaire
As you can see, they mostly refer to pain that resides in specific areas of the body. I am only interested in if they experience pain in any of these areas, so would like to merge them all into a 'pain' variable, likely binary (0=no pain 1=pain).
Are there are recommendations or procedures for doing this? The process could range from the very simple (1=report of moderate pain in any questionnaire) to the more complex (a confirmatory factor analysis of all the questions in each of these questionnaires using a 2 (no pain or pain)/3 (no pain, some pain, extreme pain) model framework).
This will end up in a structural equation model exploring how variable1 affects variable 2. Pain is associated with both variable 1 and 2. There will be a large sample size (>1000) but also potentially a lot of variables, hence the attempt to reduce these pain questionaires down into a single variable.

Answer
Trying to merge scores without being validated will make the credibility of your work questionable and the possibility to get your work publish unlikely.

Hello everyone,
Hope you’re doing well. I’m trying to explore whether the level of human capital investment (e.g. educational expenses) is lower for disabled children in comparison to their siblings. At this point, I’m hoping to get suggestions on how to specify a model that would allow me to restrict the analysis at the intra-household level and between siblings. What I’m thinking so far (using a linear or Poisson specification) and restricting the sample to siblings only:
Edu_expenses ~ f(disabled (yes=1/no=1); severity of disability; demographic indicators; socioeconomic proxies; household fixed effects; location dummies)
Will this suffice in achieving my objectives?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Best, Wameq
Relevant answer
Answer
1. You need to run a panel regression. Each family is a panel. Since you mentioned HH fixed effects, I think you are aware of that.
2. Poisson is an arrival rate distribution (yes-no), does not make sense in this context, although you could try a mlogit or hazard rate regression on number of years of school attended. Since expenses have a long-tailed range, you probably will want a log-linear model. Rather than OLS, most likely run a generalized linear model, possibly experimenting with a gamma link. Especially if your severely disabled often have no educational expenses, consider a 2-stage model based on Manning, W. G., Basu, A., & Mullahy, J. (2005). Generalized modeling

of Health Economics, 24, 465–488. doi:10.1016/j.jhealeco.
2004.09.011
3. You need a variable to control for birth order (i.e., first child, second child, etc). In that count, exclude children who died before they were school age. So e.g., first child surviving to age 5.
4. I would probably exclude families with a multiple birth.
5. Sex of child obviously is a critical variable and I am assuming all the data come from one country.
6. How will you handle government vs private expenditure, compulsory education rules. (obviously not an issue in some countries) [Extreme example: in the US, severely disabled all are sent to school as the school essentially provides custodial day care or a pupil personnel worker who comes to the home.]
7. If you are collecting data prospectively, use the WHOqol-BREF with the parents. Get a parental assessment of the child's functional capacity using the Health Utility Index-3, the PEDSqol ,or one of the new generation of similar instruments.

Hello everyone,
I want to simulate a multiphase - flow (eulerian - eulerian) through a porous media in Ansys Fluent without the effect of diameter. In the eulerian model, by default only drag is active for the phase interaction between the two phases. So the effect of diameter should no more be present, if I disable drag. If I disable drag (from schiller-naumann to none), my simulation gets unstable and I get the message "floating point exception". Can anyone help what I can do, or give me an alternative to delete the effect of diameter in my simulation?
Relevant answer
Answer
Tristan Davenne is entirely right. Essentially what you mentioned about your current solution points in the same direction. It seems to me, like ANSYS support has recommended to you to switch from a disperse multiphase flow formuölation to a VOF-like (VOF = volume-of-fluid) formulation. VOF exists in the ANSYS software in two flavours - homogeneous and inhomogeneous. The homogeneous model with just 1 set of momentum equations follows the assumption, that both phases move with the same velocity field. In that case no assumptions or knowledge about interfacial momentum transfer is needed. ANSYS has implemented an inhomogeneous VOF model as well. In that case from the local ratio in volume fractions of both phases an inherent drag term is deduced, but in that case you don not have to specify it yourself. It assumes, that separatign interfaces between the two phases are rather macroscopic and resolved by the simulation like typically done in free surface flows.
