In my previous question I suggested using the Research Gate platform to launch large-scale spatio temporal comparative researches.
The following is the description of one of the problems of pressing importance for humanitarian and educational sectors.
For the last several decades there has been a gradual loss in quality of education on all its levels . We can observe that our universities are progressively turning into entertaining institutions, where students parties, musical and sport activities are valued higher than studying in a library or working on painstaking calculations.
In 1998 Vladimir Arnold (1937 – 2010), one of the greatest mathematicians of our times, in his article “Mathematical Innumeracy Scarier Than Inquisition Fires” (newspaper “Izvestia”, Moscow) stated that the power players didn’t need all the people to be able to think and analyze, only “cogs in machines,” serving their interests and business processes. He also wrote that American students didn’t know how to sum up simple fractions. Most of them sum up numerator and denominators of one simple fraction with the ones of the other, i.e. as they did it, 1/2+ 1/3 according to their understand is equal to 2/5 . Vladimir Arnold pointed out that with this kind of education, students can’t think, prove and reason – they are easy to turn into a crowd, to be easily manipulated by cunning politicians because they don’t usually understand causes and effects of political acts. I would add, for myself, that this process is quite understandable and expected because computers, internet and consumer society lifestyle (with its continuous rush for more and newer commodities we are induced to regard as a healthy behavior) have wiped off young people’s skills in elementary logic and eagerness to study hard. And this is exactly what the consumer economics and its bosses, the owners of international businesses and local magnates, need.
I recall a funny incident that happened in Kharkov (Ukraine). One Biology student was asked what “two squared” was. He answered that it was the number 2 inscribed into a square.
The level and the scale of education and intellectual decline described can be easily measured with the help of the Research Gate platform. It could be appropriate to test students’ logic abilities, instead of guess-the-answer tests which have taken over all the universities within the framework of Bologna Process which victorious march on the territories of former Soviet states. Many people can remember the fact that Soviet education system was one of the best in the world. I have therefore suggested the following tests:
1. In a Nikolai Bogdanov-Belsky (1868-1945) painting “Oral accounting at Rachinsky's People's school”(1895) one could see boys in a village school at a mental arithmetic lesson. Their teacher, Sergei Rachinsky (1833-1902), the school headmaster and also a professor at the Moscow University in the 1860s, offered the children the following exercise to do a mental calculation (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:BogdanovBelsky_UstnySchet.jpg?uselang=ru):
(10 х 10 + 11 х 11 + 12 х 12 + 13 х 13 + 14 х 14) / 365 = ?
(there is no provision here on Research Gate to write square of the numbers,thats why I have writen through multiplication of the numbers )
19th century peasant children with basted shoes (“lapti”) were able to solve such task mentally. This year, in September, this very exercise was given to the senior high school pupils and the first year students of a university with major in Physics and Technology in Kyiv (the capital of Ukraine) and no one could solve it.
2. Exercise of a famous mathematician Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855): to calculate mentally the sum of the first one hundred positive integers:
1+2+3+4+…+100 = ?
3. Albrecht Dürer’s (1471-1528) magic square (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_square)
The German Renaissance painter was amazed by the mathematical properties of the magic square, which were described in Europe firstly in Spanish (the 1280s) and Italian (14th century) manuscripts. He used the image of the square as a detail for in his Melancholia I painting , which was drawn in 1514, and included the numbers 15 and 14 in his magic square:
16 3 2 13
5 10 11 8
9 6 7 12
4 15 14 1
Ask your students to find regularities in this magic square. In case this exercise seems hard, you can offer them Lo Shu (2200 BC) square, a simpler variant of magic square of the third order (minimal non-trivial case):
4 9 2
3 5 7
8 1 6
4. Summing up of simple fractions.
According to Vladimir Arnold’s popular articles, in the era of computers and Internet, this test becomes an absolute obstacle for more and more students all over the world. Any exercises of the following type will be appropriate at this part:
3/7 + 7/3 = ? and 5/6 + 7/15=?
I think these four tests will be enough. All of them are for logical skills, unlike the tests created under Bologna Process.
Dear colleagues, professors and teachers,
You can offer these tasks to the students at your colleges and universities and share the results here, at the Research Gate platform, so that we all can see the landscape of the wretchedness and misery resulted from neoliberal economics and globalization.

What is the best (or at least the most commonly used in medicine) way to put a Pearson's correlation coefficient into (strong, medium, weak) categories?

Answer
Ahmed Bakr, I can’t really comment, but it sounds reasonable! You could also classify them as “weaker” and “stronger”, implying that these are relative rather than absolute. Sometimes we get caught up in the statistics… try picking out one of the weak ones and try to understand what is going on in the real world, not from a statistical perspective - what is correlated with what, and what sorts of influences (in real life) might be weakening the relationship?

Casodex (or bicalutamide) is available only as a racemic mixture (S and R enatiomers): 1) the pharmacologically active R (-)-enantiomer, and 2) S-Casodex, the inactive (+) enantiomer. The S-enantiomer is thus the non-working compound but is also metabolized at a much lower rate. In other word, much higher plasma levels are the result. Does anybody know if casodex can increase emotional instability/anxiety? And which enantiomer is causing this?
Relevant answer
Answer
Re: anxiety as a side effect of bicalutamide
THIS IS FROM WIKIPEDIA [paraphrased and abbreviated]: Side effects due to androgen deprivation include mild-to-moderate breast tenderness and enlargement in up to 80% of men, along with feminisation. Reduced body hair and muscle mass, feminine fat distribution, reduced penile length, and decreased semen volume can occur, along with hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, depression, fatigue, weakness and anemia. Bicalutamide monotherapy has also been associated with an increase in the rate of heart failure.
MY OPINION: in view of this side effect profile, depression, anxiety and id-percieved stress, in a percentage of subjects, is to be expected.
Stress-related intracellular hypothyroidism (IC), producing CFS-like symptoms including anxiety, confusion and cognitive loss, will result.
Incidentally, cardiomyopathy resulting from IC is the probable cause of the heart failure mentioned in the Wikipedia article.

Dear Colleagues,
With an increasing number of countries implementing digital health and digital public health tools, questions arise about whether these tools are effective and how to implement them best nationally. The lack of a validated and standard list of indicators complicates the comparison of digital health maturity between countries. We need guidance for governments in setting up strategies for the effective implementation and adoption of digital public health tools in routine care and the prevention of diseases.
To address this challenge, we want to invite researchers and practitioners from medicine, public health, economics, computer science, law, cultural studies, sociology, or other comparable disciplines. Participants should know about the development, implementation and evaluation of digital public health systems to take part in a Delphi study to choose the leading quality indicators to assess the maturity of national digital public health systems from four perspectives:
1. The information-telecommunication-technology requirements
2. The political support and legal regulation for the implementation and use of health technologies and the generated data
3. The application of concrete digital health tools to the national health system
4. The collective social willingness to use these tools
We are using a snowball approach to reach as many experts as possible. Please join our effort by participating in this Delphi study https://bit.ly/3raMsVY. Please forward this message to all your mailing lists of colleagues that might fit the purpose of this study. Every participation will be greatly appreciated and contribute to a better understanding of international digital public health systems.
This Delphi study will be conducted within the German Leibniz ScienceCampus Digital Public Health research project entitled "Developing a Maturity Measurement Model for Digital Public Health: The Digital Public Health Readiness Index".
Best regards and take care,
Laura Maaß

Thank you, Laura! I'll have a look to see if it makes sense for me to participate. I am not a health care practitioner, though. I guess I responded to your call mainly in the role of a (concerned) citizen and patient (being on the receiving end of our German health care system). I am mostly concerned with ethical issues. These include, in my view, that, for instance, certain aspects of the doctor-patient interaction should not be digitized - neither in the sense of being digitally stored, nor even documented at all. I know this is a sensitive issue and probably speaks against the trend of increasing documentation, admin etc. in the health care system. Moreover, I think that we should exercise utmost care in not to overdo replacing physical (vis-a-vis/in-person/face-to-face) interaction between doctor and patient by digital communication. I see very grave dangers there. Anyway, at the end of the day, I think our great tradition of medical practise evolved out of the ancient, humanistic Graeco-Roman tradition (Hippocrates etc.). I think we must never loose this "human touch" in medicine. This is my main concern with the risk of over-digitising the health care system.
Thank you & all the best!

Unfortunately still today is used the chest X-ray that has been proven useless.

To be a better medicine what will we consider as chemically potential?? in terms of Chemical Reactivity of Targeted Drug Molecules with other potential molecules
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Eleas,
If I understand correctly your question is with respect to the chemical reactivity of an NCE for its target.
Most commonly high chemical reactivity is not seen as an advantage. First the molecule needs sufficient stability for shelf life, limit impurities... Then reactivity may lead to safety issues if this leads to reaction with proteins other than your intended target. A variation on this theme is also formation of reactive metabolites that can cause liver toxicity; this is linked to the original molecule having reactive features or groups that are made reactive when oxidized (oxygenated).
However, reactivity towards the intended target can be very effective for inhibition from covalent binding. This can for example allow to decuple PK and PD (prolonged PD depending on target turn-over). For this to be effective it needs to be specific: reactive "warhead" reacts only with the intended target when molecule specifically bound and not with relevant off-targets. An example of this you can read about is remibrutinib.

I found 2 theories relating to this study (conflict theory and theory of negligence), but they are not enough.
Please can I get more theories concerning medical negligence?
Relevant answer
Answer
There are four legal elements which must be proven: a professional duty owed to the patient; breach of such duty; injury caused by the breach; and (4) resulting damages.
In general, malpractice claims are adjudicated in state courts according to laws (e.g., USA), which typically require three elements for a successful claim: the patient suffered an adverse event; the provider caused the event due to action or inaction; and 3) the provider was negligent, which essentially entails showing that the provider took less care than that which is customarily practiced by the average member of the profession in good standing, given the circumstances of the doctor and the patient. Collectively, this three-part test of the validity of a malpractice claim is known as the “negligence rule.” In theory, this rule should provide compensation to iatrogenically injured patients and lead doctors to take appropriate precautions against accidental harm. In practice, however, the rule performs poorly on both dimensions.

I started my studies on histology and I realized most of well established text-books don't use scale bars in their images, except the books of the American-German Thieme Publishing Group. I think it is a lack of technical rigorosity, even though most of books treat the issue only on a qualitative point of view. So, what do you think about that? Should the publishers in that area change their concept to increase their accuracy?
Relevant answer
(only one point). maybe there is a difference to state how the image was made and how the scale could be, even though the scale bar is almost approximately at the same level each time. STM, (scanneling Tuning Microscope, false colour, the blacvk and white images, maybe the microscope taken with this 10x, objectives, and so on.All these give ideas on how the scale bars are.... even though I think it is ignored data.

How should we define the end of a local endemic?
How long should the latent period be defined?
When is it safe to resume social activities?
Should territory wide screening of asymptomatic people be done before declaring the end of endemic?
Relevant answer
Answer
The SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) coronavirus pandemic is a global epidemic. On a global scale, the state of the pandemic in March 2020 was announced by the World Health Organization. Therefore, this organization could declare the end of the pandemic. On the other hand, the end of the epidemic on a regional, national or local scale can be announced by national central institutions of the health care system, including the ministries of health, in agreement with the government. In order to be able to declare the end of the epidemic on a national, regional or local scale, it is necessary to have a relatively large decrease in the number of new coronavirus infections, a decrease in the number of people seriously ill with Covid-19 disease and deaths caused by this disease. The decrease in Coronavirus infections and in sick people should be sustained in a longer period, i.e. min. several months, taking into account the periods of possible occurrence of subsequent epidemic waves caused by new variants of the Coronavirus and occurring in other regions of the world. In addition, an important factor that may be taken into account in the event of declaring the end of a pandemic on a global scale or an epidemic on a regional scale will be the level of vaccination of citizens with highly effective vaccines against Coronavirus and the level of social, collective immunity of the society achieved thanks to these vaccines.

Dear seniors and researchers,
Briefly introducing myself, I am a fourth year medical student from Indonesia. Currently, I am performing a multiple logistic regression on several possible factors affecting medical student preference toward distance learning in this pandemic era. Honestly, it is my first time in using logistic regression in my work, and I might encounter several confusing issues regarding this statistical procedure. I have selected 14 eligible covariates for multiple logistic regression according to its significant p-value (0.000) during their simple logistic regression. After including all of those 14 covariates to the model, the ExpB (odds ratio) of all 14 covariates become insignificant despite decent model (Good result of Omnibus test, R-squared, and Holmer and Lemeshow test). All of statistical procedure were performed in SPSS ver 22.
Regarding this issue, what should I do in responding those finding? Is it correct to interpret that there were no significant relationship between all of 14 covariates and dependent variable (student preference toward distance learning) simultaneously? Or is there any suggestion of appropriate technical steps in conducting multiple regression analysis?
Thank You
Relevant answer
Answer
I'm assuming the pairs have correlation coefficient >= 0.7 (r=0.07 suggests little correlation).
If you have 3 distinct pairs, I would suggest eliminating one variable from each pair leaving the most significant ones in the set. After that, you can proceed with a stepwise regression, if needed.
Another possible solution would be implementing a dimension reduction technique (i.e. principal component analysis) to reduce the number of predicting factors.
If you require any further information, let me know.
Best wishes,
Francesco

I found a reference to this distinction on pub med that dates to the 70s. Efficacy is how well a treatment or intervention works in ideal circumstances. Effectiveness is how well a treatment or intervention works in normal practice. Although there are many references to this distinction and discussions of why it occurs, nobody seem to mention the origins of this distinction. Furthermore, this distinction seems more accepted in general medicine than in behavioral health.
Relevant answer
Answer
Efficiency, efficacy and effectiveness: What is the difference between this triad of words? Peter Drucker - considered the father of modern administration - establishes a series of fundamental distinctions between them, which gives us conceptual clarity. In a colloquial way they are known as "The three E's", but how does one "E" differ from the other two; Drucker is obliged to quote again, with the appearance of what he called “knowledge work”, thus we have: Efficacy + Efficiency = Effectiveness
Efficiency: doing things well. Carry out a task looking for the best possible relationship between the resources used and the results obtained. Efficiency has to do with the "how." The model for improving efficiency is based on three basic pillars: people, processes and customers. And it is achieved with competent people or with capacities, attitudes, aptitudes, abilities and experiences. Fast, effective and continuous flows of activities are needed that add value to the product or service for the client with efficient processes, analyzing said activities and quality.
Efficacy: doing the right things; carry out tasks in the best way, leading to the achievement of results. It has to do with "what" things are done. Effectiveness is doing what is necessary to achieve or achieve the desired or proposed objectives.
Effectiveness: doing the right things well. In other words, the tasks that are carried out are carried out efficiently and effectively. It has to do with "what" things are done and "how."
