Abstract:
This article constitutes an examination on how citizen journalism has challenged Robert Mugabe’s authoritarian regime on issues pertaining to national heroes and usages of the Heroes’ Acre as central national identity markers. Under Mugabe’s ZANU-PF, Zimbabwe has seen the public being limited from directly participating in salient national debates. ZANU-PF’s control of the official public sphere has also constrained alternative views from ventilating the government-controlled communicative spaces. The party’s narrative on heroes, the Heroes’ Acre and national identity has gained a taken-for-granted status in the public media. This has obtained against the backdrop of what has become known as the Zimbabwe crisis, characterised by a declining economy, a constricted political space, a breakdown in the rule of law, and the subsequent flight of a number of Zimbabweans into the diaspora. The accompanying wave of technological advancements and the mushrooming of mostly diaspora-based online media have opened up new vistas of communication, enabling a hitherto ‘silenced’ community of ordinary people to participate in national conversations. The conclusion reached here, is that citizen journalism has not only enhanced the culture of conversation among people (as espoused under democratic conditions) but has also covered up the democratic deficit experienced in the public sphere, mediated by traditional media, parliament and pavement radio.

Abstract:
The digital and online revolution is having a profound impact on radiology journals, forcing a migration from print to online publication and altering traditional revenue streams needed to sustain the journals. The 2013 Intersociety Committee Summer Conference attendees reviewed the history of the development of radiology journals, explored the forces driving the transition from print to electronic publication, and examined the impact of the alteration of the traditional revenue streams, such as subscription and advertisement dollars, on the financial sustainability of journals. The attendees also discussed the international movement toward open access to journal content and its impact on a journal's financial viability. Lastly, the committee explored the perceived value of radiology journals based on readership type: academic, private practice, or industry.

Abstract:
Many developmentally important Receptor Like Kinases (RLKs), also known as receptor kinases have been shown to play independent roles in plant defence. In order to investigate the role of Arabidopsis CRINKLY4 (ACR4) in plant defence mechanism, pathogen challenge experiments were carried out. It was found that ACR4 knockout leaves show reduced susceptibility to the necrotrophic pathogen, Botrytis cinerea. It is therefore possible that the ACR4 receptor might interact with other proteins that regulate specific defence responses. Reduced susceptibility of ACR4 mutant to B. cinerea could also be due to the possible epidermal defect of acr4 leaves. A detailed study of the cuticular lipid composition of acr4 leaves may help ascertain whether epidermal defects in acr4 leaves are responsible for resistance against B. cinerea.

Abstract:
In two papers on this subject (v, 34, 236, and vi, 40, 85) some difficulties were examined and missing evidence explored. Reference was made to the past existence of divers acres in the British Isles. In a lecture by Professor A. E. Snape, M.SC., on “Our Units of Measurement”, delivered at the University of Cape Town and printed in the South African Survey Journal (III, Part viii, 24, 340, 1930), some other units are considered and additional evidence adduced. For example, the Cheshire acre is given as 2.11 statute acres.

Abstract:
Context.— No studies to our knowledge have investigated citations and utilization of meta-analysis in diagnostic pathology (DP). Objective.— To characterize meta-analyses in DP compared with meta-analyses in medicine. Design.— We searched PubMed for meta-analyses in 12 major DP journals without specifying years and in 4 major medicine journals in both 2006 and 2011. We compared articles' adjusted citation ratios (ACRs), defined as an article's citation count divided by the mean citations for the meta-analysis, review, and original research articles published in the same journal in the same year. Results.— Forty-one of 76 DP articles, 74 of 125 medicine articles in 2011, and 52 of 83 medicine articles in 2006 were qualified meta-analyses as identified by PubMed. The ACRs of DP meta-analysis articles were higher than those of original research articles (2.62 ± 2.31 versus 0.92 ± 0.84, P < .001) and similar to those of review articles in 2006 (2.62 ± 2.31 versus 1.95 ± 1.59, P = .50), but they were similar to both in 2011 (1.85 ± 1.39 versus 0.99 ± 1.43, P = .11; 1.85 ± 1.39 versus 1.12 ± 1.43, P = .21, respectively). Diagnostic pathology and medicine meta-analyses had similar ACRs (1.85 ± 1.39 versus 1.57 ± 1.35 in 2011, P = .60; and 2.62 ± 2.31 versus 1.85 ± 1.90 in 2006, P = .50, respectively). However, although DP journals published fewer meta-analyses (0.97% versus 6.66% in 2011 and 0.67% versus 4.40% in 2006, P < .001 for both), they published more meta-analyses using both original and published data than medicine (21.95% versus 1.59%, P < .001). They also published more meta-analyses per year in 2011–2014 than in 2000–2010 (6.4 ± 1.29 versus 1.36 ± 1.03 articles per year, P < .001). Conclusions.— We found underutilization of meta-analyses in DP, despite their high ACRs and recently increased utilization. More DP meta-analyses are needed.

Abstract:
We assessed radiologists' perceptions of radiologic and general medical journals. Five thousand randomly chosen radiologists (4,200 American College of Radiology (ACR) members and 800 members in training) were surveyed by mail concerning their opinion of selected radiology and major medical journals. The mail survey was followed up by a phone survey of 45 previously unsurveyed radiologists from a smaller list of a similar ACR population. Of the 5,000 surveys mailed out, 987 (20%) were completed and returned. There were no systematic differences in the questionnaire results between those surveyed by phone and those surveyed by mail. In general, academic radiologists, private practice radiologists, and radiologists in training did not differ in their assessment of professional journals. The respondents picked Radiology as their first choice if they were allowed to read only one journal. The respondents believed that Radiology published the best clinical research and Investigative Radiology the best basic science research. American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR), Radiology, and Journal of Computer Assisted Tomography ranked highest for sureness and rapidity of manuscript acceptance and publication, while Radiology, New England Journal of Medicine, and the Journal of the American Medical Association ranked highest in terms of exposure and prestige.

Abstract:
Background As part of the review process of new drug applications in the USA, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) performs an independent analysis after receiving raw data from clinical trials conducted by the sponsor. From this FDA review, a critical report is available to third parties, describing the FDA analysis and conclusions. Despite the availability of these critical data, the medical community derives much of its information from journal published papers. Objectives To ascertain if there are differences between the FDA analysis and those data which are published, we undertook a direct comparison between FDA and published results of Biologics Agents (BAs) in RA, using ACR20 responses as the target outcome (often used in drug development). Methods We obtained reviews of the approved BAs for RA available on the FDA Web site, and subsequently identified phase 2 and 3 trials. We then identified matching publications in scientific journals. From both sources we extracted ACR20s and calculated odds ratios (ORs) for all active trial arms vs. controls. To compare the ORs from the FDA review and the corresponding published paper, the Ratio of ORs (ROR) were calculated for all pair-wise comparisons when ACR20 was reported in both sources. The ROR was calculated as Exp{ln(OR[FDA]) - ln(OR[Pub])}. The anticipated correlation between the two lnORs measures was estimated empirically across all the pair-wise comparisons to estimate the corresponding variance of ROR. Results RA trials were reported on 7 BAs with a total of 30 trials (2-6 trials in each FDA review) on the FDA Web site. All except one trial were published. Five trials were excluded from the analysis: in 2 trials ACR20 was reported in neither the FDA nor published paper; in 2 published papers, no ACR20 was shown and in 1 trial the FDA described no ACR20s. Out of these five, only the unpublished trial had ACR20 as the primary outcome. ACR20 was reported in 25 trials in both sources: in 21 trials the ACR20 was the primary outcome, 3 had other primary efficacy outcomes, and in 1, safety was the primary outcome. From the 25 trials, a total of 55 pair-wise comparisons were evaluated: 19 (34.6%) were in disagreement (9 were statistically significantly different, p<0.05). The FDA report showed more beneficial effect in 15 trials whereas efficacy was more favoured in 4 journal publications. The differences were related to analytic approaches (10 occasions), counting differences (1), rounding effects (4) or administrative matters (4). The differences did not change the overall outcomes. Conclusions Discrepancies between results in published scientific journals and the FDA reviews occurred in one third of the submitted trials and comparisons. These differences can be attributed to multiple reasons. While real discrepancies occurred, there was no empirical evidence to suggest biased estimates between the FDA and published results. Increased transparency in publications would increase the credibility of published results.

Abstract:
Purpose: This study aims to review the auditor-client relationship (ACR) literature spanning 1976 to 2019 to provide future research directions. Design/methodology/approach: The study analysed 140 articles from the Web of Science database, authored by 259 scholars across 28 countries and published in 47 journals. It identified three major research streams to understand the ACR dynamics: auditor tenure, ACR attributes and auditor-client negotiation. Findings: Three major findings emerged based on this review. First, few studies examine auditor-client negotiation relative to other streams; thus, it offers scope for further research. Second, given that various fields have used diverse frameworks as theoretical underpinnings in prior studies, continuing this trend can better portray ACR from multiple perspectives. Finally, despite strong international regulations on ACR aspects such as auditor independence, tenure and rotation, implementation in several countries warrants special considerations, specifically on legal enforcement and investor protection, given diverse cultures and country-level institutional environments. Originality/value: This study contributes to the synthesis of existing and emerging research streams and provides future research suggestions.

Abstract:
Background Like most poorly understood rheumatic conditions, Fibromyalgia is thought to be rare in West Africa. Many clinicians rely on the various ACR classification criteria to make a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia despite the unknown performance of these criteria among patients of sub-Saharan African origin. Objectives To describe the characteristics of fibromyalgia in Nigerian patients and determine the sensitivities of four ACR criteria sets. Methods Consecutive patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia for the first time by a rheumatologist were evaluated using ACR 1990, ACR 2010, 2011 modification of ACR 2010 (ACR 2011) and ACR 2016 classification criteria for fibromyalgia. Sleep quality was assessed with the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), fatigue with the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) and severity of fibromyalgia with the Revised Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire (FIQR). The overall characteristics and the beliefs of these patients regarding their disease were analysed. Results Of the one hundred and fourteen (114) patients, ninety six (96) were females; male-to-female ratio is 1:5.3. The median duration of symptoms before diagnosis is 54 months (3 to 273 months) and the mean age is 44.6±15.6 years. Mild, moderate, and severe fibromyalgia were found in 32(28.1%), 53(46.5%) and 29(25.4%) patients respectively. Sensitivities of ACR 1990, ACR 2010, ACR 2011, andACR 2016 were 38.5%, 68.2%, 76.7% and 76.7%, respectively. Poor sleep was found in 83 (72.8%) patients. Patients in functional classes I, II, and III were 71 (62.3%), 19 (16.7%) and 24 (21.1%), respectively. There was none in class IV. There was positive history of widespread pain in at least one first degree relative of 56 (49.1%) patients. Twenty-one (18.4%) patients had changed or quit their job due to the disease and there was significant association between job loss and number of tender points as well as disease severity. The Mean FFS score is 4.48±1.3 and 73 (64.0%) patients believed their problem is a spiritual attack while 43 (37.7%) had done one form of ritual or the other in search of cure. Conclusion Fibromyalgia syndrome exists in West Africa. It is poorly understood among the sufferers and ACR 1990 is not sensitive as a diagnostic tool for the condition.

Journal of Neuroscience Research 46, 7–17.] Kinesin-related genes were isolated from rat testes [Navolanic, P.M., and Sperry, A.O. (2000). Identification of isoforms of a mitotic motor in mammalian spermatogenesis. Biology of Reproduction 62, 1360–1369.], their kinesin-like proteins expressed in bacteria using recombinant DNA techniques and the effects of ACR, glycidamide (GLY) and propionamide (a non-neurotoxic metabolite) on the function of two of the identified kinesin motors were tested. KIFC5A MT bundling activity, required for mitotic spindle formation, was measured in an MT-binding assay. Both ACR and GLY caused a similar concentration-dependent reduction in the binding of MT; concentrations of 100 μM ACR or GLY reduced its activity by 60%. KRP2 MT disassembling activity was assayed using the quantity of tubulin disassembled from taxol-stabilized MT. Both ACR and GLY inhibited KRP2-induced MT disassembly. GLY was substantially more potent; significant reductions of 60% were achieved by 500 μM, a comparable inhibition by ACR required a 5 mM concentration. Propionamide had no significant effect on either kinesin, except KRP2 at 10 mM. This is the first report of ACR inhibition of a mitotic/meiotic motor protein. ACR (or GLY) inhibition of kinesin may be an alternative mechanism to DNA adduction in the production of cell division defects and potential carcinogenicity. We conclude that ACR may act on multiple kinesin family members and produce toxicities in organs highly dependent on microtubule-based functions.

Hong, S.; Dodaran, A.A.; Kim, T.; Kim, J.; Huynh, V.M.; Lee, J., and Kwon, S., 2021. Variation of irregular waves passing over an Artificial Coral Reef (ACR). In: Lee, J.L.; Suh, K.-S.; Lee, B.; Shin, S., and Lee, J. (eds.), Crisis and Integrated Management for Coastal and Marine Safety. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 114, pp. 524–528. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208. To investigate the variation of irregular waves due to an Artificial Coral Reef (ACR), two-dimensional experiments on the wave steepness, wave period, and relative submergence were conducted. The results for the wave transmission coefficient under ACR installation indicated that the wave steepness and period conditions are closely related to wave attenuation, which has similar trends for general coastal structures, even under irregular wave conditions. Additionally, the total spectral energy decreased gradually, whereas an inconsistent peak-energy decrement occurred with a wave steepness of 0.032, which was expected because of spectral energy redistribution due to ACR. The correlation between the relative submergence and spectral energy was investigated via a spectral analysis. In high frequency domain (1.25∼2.25f/fp), the composition ratio of spectral energy increased with larger relative submergence, whereas opposite trend was observed in low frequency domain (0.25∼0.75f/fp). The main findings of this study can provide basic knowledge for understanding irregular wave variation over the ACR.

Abstract:
Editorial note: On February 4, 1992, at a press conference sponsored by a public interest group, Food and Water, Inc., a group of scientists, including Dr. Samuel S. Epstein, presented a statement at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., criticizing the cancer policies of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the American Cancer Society, and some 20 cancer centers. A few days earlier, a commentary on breast cancer by Dr. Epstein questioning the widespread use of mammography was published in the Los Angeles Times. We are pleased to present these statements in the Journal, along with a response from the NCI, a response from the American College of Radiology (ACR), and a rebuttal to these NCI and ACR responses from Dr. Epstein.

Abstract:
Some 2 million farms cover 900 million acres throughout the United States, and for many these farms are what come to mind when the word agriculture is used. However, the U.S. agricultural sector extends beyond farm production to include such industries as fishing, forestry, and food production. Agricultural journalism refers to a specialized media system and network of communication professionals that provides news, information, and commercial messages to the agricultural industry and other audiences. Gaining a deeper awareness of the origin and current status of agricultural journalism not only provides perspective on a crucial and diverse industry but also offers a rich historical context in which to better understand mainstream American journalism and consider some of its contemporary challenges. This entry traces agricultural journalism in the ...

Abstract:
Continuing the work on which a paper was published by the writer in the Journal of Helminthology, April, 1937, it was decided to concentrate on calcium chloro-acetate in the 1938 field experiments on soil treatment for the control of the potato sickness associated with Heterodera schachtii.Tests were made at five different centres in the counties of Glamorgan and Monmouth with amounts equivalent to 3 cwt. and 5 cwt. to the acre.
