I am dealing with MMEs hosted by tonalites.Petrographic and geochemical characters supports magma mixing origin for the MMEs. Sr-Nd-Hf isotopic analysis for both host rock and associated MMEs shows mantle source.
For magma maxing mechanism ,we should have crustal and mantle source but,in my case the isotopic data shows same parental source ,which is mantle.
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Mubasir,
Who did say that you need mantle- and crustal-derived melts to have mixing? You can have such process between two (or more) melts derived from the same type of sources.
There is a weal6of scientific articles dealing with this.
MME are often associated to imperfect mixing, i.e. magma mingling.

Hi, I am doing my dissertation and have two questionnaires. I want to see if there is a relationship between the two i.e. any influence of parent feeding styles on child eating behaviour.
Parent feeding questionnaire (PFQ) and child eating behaviours (CEBQ)
I have quite a few mean results so how do I conduct regression?
I have done a correlation for all the means but then should I do a regression and if so how do I do it for all the means? Thank you in advance.

Q1. We have screened 120 cotton hybrids under two summer temperature regimes and recorded data for around 30 traits including morphological, physiological and quality traits, further, I want to study the behavioural changes of these traits which are ultimately responsible for the yield difference across two summer temperature regimes. Please help me to compare the two sets of means for 30 traits with suitable statistical analysis.
Q2. We also have data for 22 parents (Varieties) and their 120 hybrids, kindly suggest me a suitable statistical analysis for comparing parents and hybrids for 30 traits.
Relevant answer
Answer
This really sounds like one of those projects where your question should have been asked at the beginning of the year rather than after harvesting.
I'm guessing a simple t-test won't do, so you want some sort of multivariate analysis to deal with co-related variables (total leaf area is probably related to total leaf number for example).
But you haven't specified how many replicates you've taken for this experiment, or if you've only measured your variables once or repeatedly over the entire growing period. What is meant by "behavioural": during this year's growth only, or repeated years at the same conditions?
You might want to look at some sort of heritability analysis between parents and hybrids, with h2 and H2 calculations, but with only 120 offspring from 22 parents, that might be a stretch for even the most optimistic of statistical packages.

Hi there!
One of my research areas is to promote physical activity behaviors in parents of children with disabilities. I have been conducting several projects regarding this topic.
However, I wonder if parents of children with disabilities can become a target population in the adapted physical activity area. I know that adapted physical activity is a multidisciplinary study, but parents of children with disabilities may be on the side of the family study?
Thank you for sharing your thoughts! :)

Sir, you can take your research in two directions parents and children as a unit and did the unit behaviour reach your expectation as per your physical activity intervention or mother and father individually across age means, middle-aged parents, younger parents, their changes in behaviour as per your expectation.

Study: Adult attachment style, parenting, and mental help seeking intentions
What is this study about?
The purpose of this study is to understand possible relationships with parent-child relationships, adult attachment styles, and mental help seeking intention.
What does a participant need to do?
Before joining the study, participants will need to read an information sheet (which includes more study details and participant confidentiality information) and complete a consent form. Participants will then complete a questionnaire that includes background information (age, ethnicity, and gender identity), questions about the participant’s relationship with parents whilst growing up, general questions about romantic relationships, and how the participant views seeking mental help support. The questionnaire can take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete. After completion, participants will be given a debriefing form.
Why participate?
This study aims to contribute to a better understanding of how attachment styles and parent-child relationships may influence a person’s view of seeking mental health support. By participating in the study, you are helping contribute to more recent research in adult attachment styles and adverse childhood experiences.
Who can participate?
Anyone who is at least 18 years old at the time of participation.
What happens if I change my mind?
Participation in this study is completely voluntary. Participants can withdraw consent up to 1 month after submitting their study questionnaire.
What if I have questions before deciding to participate?

Religious and sociocultural implications of relating the discussions of HPV and pre-cancer screening by parents to adolescents and young girls in an African Setting
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes, parent can and they should. Although in the context of sub-sahara Africa, this is difficult because parents find it improper and hard to discuss sex with their children, as this is perceived to be encouraging them to engage in sex. However, with the new generation of parents and with more awareness and sensitization, as well as, inclusion of comprehensive sexuality education in the school curriculum, parents and adolescents are more likely to be more enlightened than in the past

I'm using fluorescence activated cell sorting (FACS) to determine the GFP cell percentage. Untransfected sample is used to establish the gate for GFP signal. At the beginning of sorting, a gating is necessary to establish the singlets among total cell population. This gated group is named "parent population". At the end, the GFP percentage is represented not only regard to total number of events (total %), but also regard to parent population (parent %). As expected, the GFP% is significantly larger when considering the parent population. My question is Which population I have to consider for analysis, total or parent? because, as everybody knows, total population will include died cells, detritus, etc.
Please help, because I am new for this kind of assays. Thanks everybody!
Relevant answer
Answer
You compare the gated populations. Say you use HEK cells for transfection with a GFP+ plasmid, you then want to know which percentage of your live single HEK cells are succesfully transfected and you want to compare this between your treated and untreated cells. If you take along non-singlets or debris in your analysis, you create a bias as for example non-singlets are more likely to be GFP+ as they contain double cells etc. When having these questions, think of what your reseach question is: in this case you want to know whether your HEK cells are transfected, not whether the debris or non-singlets are transfected.

Family Systems Theory by Murray Bowen is a specific approach which takes familial functioning into account. I am interested in how the concepts present in it will translate into a South Asian (or, to be more precise, the collectivistic framework of Pakistan) context? For instance, Bowen's theory is based on an understanding of nuclear family systems but how would it apply in the case of a joint family? In a culture where parents might be dependent on the views of the community in terms of bringing up children, how would Bowen's theories translate exactly (for instance, if they have a disabled child)? For example, what is the difference between Bowen's concepts of relationships between generations and the kinds that might emerge owing to different generations living under the same roof and with their extended family members as well?
Let's say, for instance, that it is not merely parents but also other members of the family such as extended family members or grandparents who either counsel children on "appropriate conduct" or even express disapproval and view it as appropriate behavior culturally. How do Murray's concepts such as "Differentiation" change in a cultural sense in that case just as one example out of many possible ones? In a culture where "adulthood" and transition towards it might exist in a legal sense but might not be necessarily viewed as "important" even for parental figures (for instance, even if children cross the age of 18, parents do not try to treat their children as "adults"), how would Bowen's concepts change? I am not talking in terms of applying these concepts therapeutically, but, in terms of how they might be applicable in a conceptual sense.
Relevant answer
Answer
Bowen is from Pittsburgh which is not far where I reside. I am quite familiar with his ides.
Family is a crucial social unit. The subsystems are: sibling, parental and marital.

Today I learned from a seminar about a discussion "what amount of recombinant protein you used in gene-KO cells. And the amount should equal that in cells". So my question is when we do transfection to complement a gene in KO cells, should I find a plasmid amount leading to the same expression level of this protein as parental cells? Because in my experience, transfected protein is always much higher than the basal level in cells I used, like 293T.

I am starting my dissertation topic. I have rewritten a few times over the last year while I was studying. I want to study the effects of trauma that help to develop leaders. However, I want to show a path that led to the leaders, and I do not want to assume which leadership style has been most developed back a trauma effects on the person.
My thought process is looking at parental style first having leaders do a survey to provide me with which parental style the leader had in their life. Then to look at their religious/spiritual influence. Then to their education through learning theories. Their personal resiliency. Then if trauma was a part of their life. Then which leadership style they consider themselves.

2. parents/caregivers who have a child/adolescent without a mental health diagnosis

Thank you :)
Sonya
Relevant answer
Answer
Rhianon Allen makes a very useful point. With a regression, you can define the effects that interest you. In this case, a) what is the effect of having children and b) does the presence of mental health issues have an additional effect over and above that of having children.
With an ANOVA, you end up asking if there's "some kinda" difference between the groups. You rarely encounter a situation where the's the best hypothesis that the current state of theory and evidence can come up with. Looking back on it, I don't think that in my entire life I've ever used an ANOVA in a published paper.

We are looking for participants who meet the following criteria:
• A resident in the United Kingdom (UK)
• Grew up in a two-parent household
• Currently have school-aged children
• Parent those children with a stable long-term partner who lives in the same household
The study will involve answering a set of demographic questions, questions about the parenting style received from your own parents, the parenting style you use with your own children, and questions measuring your levels of both self-efficacy and learned helplessness.
If you have any further questions regarding the study, please contact me at beth.sheerin@northumbria.ac.uk.

i'd originally gone with phenomenology, however now unsure and have confused myself.
I'm conducting semi-structured interviews to explore and gather parent's experiences and views of how they have coped during covid-19 with their autistic children.
I want to gather their lived experiences, but as i will be comparing to relevant research and policy now thinking is it more grounded theory?
These are my research questions:
RQ1 What impact do parents of children with ASC think the COVID-19 pandemic/national lockdown has had on their children and family, particularly on outcomes such as behaviour, academic attainment and children’s social and emotional development?
RQ2 What are parent’s perceptions on the level of support received from schools in The UK for children with ASC, to help with their social, emotional, and physical wellbeing, alongside their academic attainment?
RQ3 What impact do parents believe this support has had on their child’s emotional, social and academic development? Are there any aspects that could be improved specifically for children with ASC?
Relevant answer
Answer
Basically, if confused, then one should also work at knowing oneself and one's strengths and limitations as well. So, in addition to the theme, field, research questions etc, one should play to one's strength. In general terms, this means if you enjoy an older approach, with more underpinning theory behind it, use phenomenology. If you prefer a neater, more structured approach, then you will probably resonate more with grounded theory. Whatever the choice, if this is also what you love, you will enjoy it more and do it better. This "advice" comes with acute consciousness that this is not a very academic way of advising. More academically, see following links:

The parent-child connection, on the other hand, is often measured using three primary methods: self-reports, interviews, and observational measures. The test has also been utilized with parents of autistic children, and both maladaptive and adaptive child behavior has been linked to PSI-SF scores (Tomanik, Harris, & Hawkins, 2004).

I am a homeschooling parent who came to realize that my young children (in grades 1 and 3 this year) are into mathematics for its beauty. They are amazed at the fact that adding two whole numbers in any order yields the same result (commutativity), grouping when adding may be helpful (associativity), that for particular numbers n, x, and y, we have that n = x^2 = y^3: 1 = 1^2 = 1^3; 64 = 8^2 = 4^3, etc. They are mesmerized by the fact that 1 = 1, 3 = 1 + 2, 6 = 1 + 2 + 3, 10 = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4, ...; special sequences of numbers such as (in this case) triangular numbers (which they know as "step shapes"). They don't take for granted that 1n = n for any integer (I don't think they are ready for real numbers in general). They can see that division is akin to factoring: 12/4 = 3 because 3 and 4 are factors of 12 (though they are not too up on the vocabulary yet)... They can see informally that a - b = - (b - a): 8 - 5 = 3 implies that 5 - 8 = -3.
I hope I am fortunate enough to see them through their entire grade school through high school learning.
My concern is: why do educators/teachers and parents a debate so much about basic skills versus critical reasoning as if these things removed from context of the ACTUAL beautiful ideas in mathematics will pull school children into understanding mathematics any more than knowing words alone is enough to make a great writer? Why do we either (a) think that its all basic skills, or (b) word problems about so-called everyday stuff that are more social studies than mathematics? How about focusing on mathematics as subject like we do Language Arts? We don't reduced Language Arts to writing letters and business contracts in which grammar and syntax are important? We want children to enjoy the beauty of language; shouldn't we do the same with mathematics?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think Cris Wellington was very lucky with the kids. Most children are unlikely to be able to get interested in the beauty of mathematics, all the more so in an ordinary classroom.

Question

Hello,
I am doing my MSc dissertation research on mental health. The aim of my project is to study the association between children's mental health and their parents' mental health, before and during Covid-19.
I am using one of the UK Data Services datasets. The datasets are 4 waves (one before and three during Covid-19), each wave has three datasets (Adult dataset, children dataset and youth dataset).
The mental health of children has been assessed using the Strength and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ) and the parents' mental health has been evaluated using the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). SDQ and GHQ are both give me scores that indicate mental health.
When I merge the three datasets of each wave alone, I end up with SDQ just for children and GHQ just for adults and missing in both. Therefore, I couldn't run the analysis.
My questions are:
How to merge these datasets from all four waves in one dataset, probably?
What the suitable statical test (Pearson's correlation for each wave alone or One Way ANOVA)?
Thank you so much
Relevant answer
Answer
It sounds like your data is in a long format. You may want to merge your data in a wide format.
The long-format data look like this following.
id child sdq ghq
1 1 x
2 1 x
3 1 x
1 0 x
2 0 x
3 0 x
For the rows of the indicator child = 1, parents' data (ghq) is missing. For the rows of the indicator child = 0, the child's data (sdq) is missing. Note that the id is duplicated twice: one for a parent's data and the other for a child's data.
The wide-format data should look like this.
id sdq-c ghq-p
1 x x
2 x x
3 x x
If that is the case, you will need to restructure your data.

A child (10 years old), suffering from blindness, (7) months ago, the ophthalmologist diagnosed him that the success of his operation was approximately (75%), but after (5) months had passed, that is, when the date of the operation came and the doctor diagnosed him again, he confirmed the success rate of the operation (3%) is due to acute retinal detachment.
What is the reason for that in your opinion?
Should the choice of answer be with an adequate explanation of the case?

We are planning an evaluation of an intervention that is designed to increase kindergarten staff's ability to identify and manage concerns of child maltreatment (i.e., maltreatment of kids attending their kindergarten).
Learning outcomes include a) increased knowledge about child maltreatment (e.g., signs of maltreatment); b) ability to manage concerns of abuse (e.g., filing a report to child protective services, speaking with the child or parents, etc.), and c) an improved organizational culture where one may discuss concerns of maltreatment openly, with a sense of collegial support.
Considering these outcomes, does anyone have any suggestions for existing self-report measures that may be suitable? I haven't really found anyone that directly addresses these issues. All comments are welcome!

Specifically, we are looking for both parents/carers and their babies who are living in the UK to take part in the study. Specifically, we are interested in infants who are learning two languages in the home (for example, mum speaks to the baby consistently in Greek and Dad speaks to the baby consistently in Portuguese OR Dad speaks English and Grandma speaks Italian to the baby). The study will be conducted online, and each parent/carer will take part in two sessions: (1) Session 1 will involve parents/carers completing an online questionnaire and (2) in Session 2 parents/carers and their babies will complete a short language game online. We’re looking for families where two caregivers from the child’s home can participate in the study and we offer a £10 voucher to thank each participant for their involvement.

Hi everyone,
I am working on a project for the State Department of Education. We help them to calculate whether a program reaches an indicator. For example, for this particular study, we sent parents a survey with 25 items. The parents choose on a 6 likert scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree with these 25 statements. We then calculate the average score of the total responses of the 25 items. and see how many percent of parents reach the cut off percent (i.e. 4).
However some parents missed answer some of the 25 items. the difficulties of the items are different. In this case, do I need to remove some of the parents in the analysis (e.g, if some of them only answered 2 or 4 questions?). If so, why should I do so? How do I determine how many missing is the appropriate cut off criterion? Is it necessary to remove parents with missing items in this case?
THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Jane Li ,
I would be wary about applying rules of thumb blindly. It should really depend on the specifics of your project (specific goals, sample size, number of variables, pattern of missingness..)
Example1: Say I have data on 20 subjects. Missing 20% of values would most likely be disastrous. If I have 20 000 subjects on the other hand, missing 20% is probably not a big deal (assuming missingness is random).
Example2: Say I have 10 variables in my analysis. If I'm missing 10% of the data but most of it is in the same variable, I essentially loose a variable. If the 10% missing are spread across all variables, chances are I can still use all 10 variables.
Does that make sense?

Using a MUT vs parent cell line, my colleagues and I have seen increased proliferation in MUT cells. To address this further, we have been synchronizing cells 48h in 0.1% serum (with 10mM sodium butyrate added for the last 24h, G1/S block) and then releasing them back to 10% FBS and monitoring cell cycle progress using PI. I'm having some difficulty interpreting the data, so thought I would check on here to see if those more versed in cell cycle analysis can help. Here is what we are seeing:
1. Unsynchronized WT cells actually have reduced % cells in G2/M phase (14% vs 17% in parent cells, so mild).
2. After 48h of synchronization, we now see MUT cells having increased % G2/M phase (11% vs 9% in parent cells).
3. When we release the synchronized cells and put them back into 10% FBS, 12hr/16/20h later the MUT cells all have increased %G2/M (10%/6%/3.5% vs 6%/3%/2% in parent cells) as well as increased increased % S at 12h/16h (12%/13% vs 6%/9% in parent cells).
These differences, while statistically significant, seem mild, but would the interpretation be that the MUT cells have increased entry into G2/M phase? I was expecting to see a huge defect in the majority of cells that are synchronized, but at 24h when the bulk of the cells are in S phase, I don't see a difference between MUT and parent cells. I'm not sure how to interpret this, but am wondering whether I should consider synchronizing the cells at a different point in the cell cycle to try to bring out what appears to be acceleration to G2/M phase.
Any help is greatly appreciated! This is my first time giving cell cycle analysis a go so I'm a bit of a newbie here :)
Relevant answer
Answer
Not following and knowing all the story behind it, it looks the Mut cells show a slower cell cycle progression with an impression that the cells have trouble exiting the S phase. You could say "increased %G2/M" as you mentioned.

Dear Ahmet Okumuş Starting from an open-pollinated population, continued selfing rapidly separates the population into several lines. During early generations (S2, S3 and S4), several lethal and sub-vital types appear, and selection for such highly heritable traits are highly effective. From S5 generation onwards, one can practice selection for plant height, length of ear shoot, etc (quantitative traits) as the lines attain considerable homozygosity (> 95%), and the effects of dominance and non-allelic interactions have been dissipated.

Hi,
I’ve mastered my binary logistic regressions and found that my educational intervention has a statistical significance of a similar magnitude to the effect of parental university education. I’d now like to look and see if it has more impact on families who don‘t have that Uni education than on those that do.
The measure of effectiveness is daily reading with their child (y/n), there are 2 groups I want to compare (intervenation/control) and the other variable (which itself has a correlation with the measure of daily reading) is Uni education yes/no.
There are many other variables which were in the regression which also had impacts on daily reading but I’d like to measure now whether there is a larger positive impact on families where there is no uni education than in those who did go to Uni.
The respondents were self selected via online questionnaire and about 1500 receive the intervention and 3500 don’t.
Independent T test? Or something else?
Many thanks!

Answer
Thanks both! I’ll look into what you’ve both suggested.
My data has the option to be nominal - I can separate it back out into frequency of reading (never, weekly, few times. daily) and for educational level 1-7 representing gcse through to doctoral study.
With the logistic regressions I’m seeing that the IVs are all statistically significant, I’m not sure how to show (if there is one) an incremental growth in the relationship (hypothesis - the lower the parental educational level, the larger the impact of the intervention as measured by the reading frequency either as nominal data or dichotomous).
