  • U.S. Open: Finished T4 at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst's No. 2, 10 strokes behind runaway winner Martin Kaymer. By finishing inside the top four, guaranteed a spot in the 2015 U.S. Open. Appearance in North Carolina was his fourth start in a major, with his only other made cut coming at the 2013 PGA Championship (T70).
  • Omega Dubai Desert Classic: On the European Tour, contended at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, opening 69-65 at Emirates GC to sit a stroke off Rory McIlroy's 36-hole lead. Finished with rounds of 70-70 to T3 with Romain Wattel, two shots behind winner Stephen Gallacher.
  • Frys.com Open: Making his first non-major championship PGA TOUR start, finished T3 at the Frys.com Open. Rounds of 67-64 led to a one-stroke 36-hole lead followed by a third-round 67 and a two-stroke advantage with 18 holes to play. Title hopes were dashed with bogeys on Nos. 16 and 17, finishing three strokes behind champion Jimmy Walker.

PROSPERITY

Mass-produced consumer goods like automobiles and ready-to-wear clothes were not new to the 1920s, nor were advertising or mail-order catalogues. But something was new about Americans' relationship with manufactured products, and it was accelerating faster than it could be defined. Not only did the latest goods become necessities, consumption itself became a necessity, it seemed. Was that good for America? Yes, said some&mdashpeople can live in unprecedented comfort and material security. Not so fast, said others&mdashcan we predict where consumerism will take us before we're inextricably there?

Collected commentary. Advertising, installment buying, consumer credit, the allure of ever-better mass-produced goods&mdashdid these herald the triumph or decay of American civilization? Illustrated with numerous advertisements, this collection samples the ardent opinions voiced by champions and critics of "consumptionism" in the 1920s. What was the core of their disagreement? Did they agree on any central points? How does their discussion resemble today's commentary on consumerism? Selections can be divided among students for research and classroom discussion. (16 pp.)

The Cathedrals of Fifth Avenue, oil on canvas, 1931. In a personal style unique among the American modernists, artist Florine Stettheimer created her Cathedrals series to showcase, and whimsically satirize, New York City's pre-eminence in entertainment, consumerism, finance, and art. The four large paintings&mdasheach five feet by four feet&mdashare flamboyant, witty, unapologetically busy, and incontestably eye-catching. Each unfurls from a central arch, the "cathedral altar," and is constructed like an "elaborate stage design for an over-the-top Broadway musical production number." 1 In The Cathedrals of Fifth Avenue, the "cathedrals" are the secular temples of consumer worship&mdashthe exclusive shops and restaurants of Fifth Avenue, their names and logos emblazoned in the sky like fireworks. At center is the cathedral "altar," modeled on the entrance to St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral, as a society wedding party exits the church and enters the enticing secular domain of Fifth Avenue. What response to the painting, and to consumerism, do you think Stettheimer intended? Why is the painting fun to look at (and why is it important to ask)? Compare The Cathedrals of Fifth Avenue with The Cathedrals of Broadway in this collection. (2 pp.) METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART/NHC

Humorists on salesmanship. "For better or for worse," wrote consumer activist Stuart Chase, "we have entered the Age of the Salesman. The final objective of the salesman is to put it across, to get away with it, to secure the order. The signature on the dotted line becomes the Supreme Good." 2 In numerous articles with hard-hitting prose, Chase warned Americans of the wiles of modern salesmanship. And in their unique fashion, so did humorists. Here we read columns by two of the most popular humorists of the 1920s&mdashthe urban wit Robert Benchley, on "How to Sell Goods," and the "cowboy philosopher" Will Rogers decrying slogans in advertising and politics. (See Rogers on credit buying and Chase on the "Age of the Salesman" in the collected commentary.) What unique modes of conveying a message does humor offer? What constitutes a successful use of humor in persuasive prose? (4 pp.)

Silent theater commercials. Imagine yourself settled into a movie theater seat and viewing these brief ads for flour, hand cleaner, and the electric refrigerator before the main feature. How did the producers hope to motivate the viewers to buy the products? What did they use as visual enticement? What information did they convey? Did any use humor? Which of the three ads was most successful, in your opinion? How do they compare with movie theater advertising today? LIBRARY OF CONGRESS


Introduction

Childhood screen-time has increased over the years[1–4]. Increased screen-time has been associated with unhealthy dietary patterns, poor sleep quality, cardiovascular disease, and obesity[5] in children. In 2016, the new Canadian 24-hour Movement Guidelines[6, 7] recommend that children aged five and over should have less than two-hours of screen-time/day, while limiting screen-time to less than one-hour/day for two-four year olds. It has been estimated that children between three to five years old are exposed to an average of two-hours of screen-time per day[8–13] in Canada.

There has been a significant increase in screen options in recent years, from device choices to streaming content, with rising concern that screen-time may have negative consequences for mental health[14]. Studies of school-aged children have shown associations between increased television viewing time and attention problems[15–17]. The Dunedin Study found that increased television viewing from five to eleven years old was associated with attention problems in adolescence[18]. In their study sample, children reportedly watched an average of 2-hours of television each day between[18]. Recent study examining adolescent sedentary behaviors among suggested that screen-time should be considered a risk factor for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms[19]. Swing et al[20] reported that television viewing time greater than 2-hours per day was associated with increased attention problems among older children. A meta-analysis concluded that television viewing or gaming among 4–17 years old children was modestly associated with later ADHD symptoms[4]. Reports in toddlers and preschoolers have linked television viewing time above 1.5 hours to later behavioral and emotional problems[8]. There is less research examining associations between screen-time exposure and behavioral development in the preschool years. Most studies have focused on school-aged children, only considered traditional screen sources such as television viewing, or did not allow for many potential confounders.

We analyzed data from the population-based Canadian Healthy Infant Longitudinal Development (CHILD) birth cohort study to determine associations between screen-time and behavioral outcomes at age 5 years. Prolonged screen-time may displace time spent in other activities such as active play important to promoting development in young children[21, 22]. The extensive CHILD Study assessment allowed us to examine major determinants of mental health including movement behaviors (e.g. screen-time, sleep, physical activity) in addition to important covariates such as parenting stress, socioeconomic status, marital status, and breastfeeding. We investigated whether parents of children exposed to more screen-time reported more externalizing and internalizing behavior problems at 5 years of age. We sought to determine if increased screen-time above the Canadian recommended guideline is associated with clinically significant behavior problems in young children. We hypothesized that children exposed to screen-time above the 2-hour threshold would exhibit clinically significant (T-Score ≥65) ADHD type behavior problems.


French Revolution

The turmoil of the French Revolution created opportunities for ambitious military leaders like Napoleon. The young leader quickly showed his support for the Jacobins, a far-left political movement and the most well-known and popular political club from the French Revolution.

In 1792, three years after the Revolution had begun, France was declared a republic the following year, King Louis XVI was executed. Ultimately, these acts led to the rise of Maximilien de Robespierre and what became, essentially, the dictatorship of the Committee of Public Safety. 

The years of 1793 and 1794 came to be known as the Reign of Terror, in which many as 40,000 people were killed. Eventually the Jacobins fell from power and Robespierre was executed. In 1795, the Directory (the French Revolutionary government) took control of the country, a power it would it assume until 1799.


Ecological Footprint

Ecological Footprint accounting measures the demand on and supply of nature.

On the demand side, the Ecological Footprint adds up all the productive areas for which a population, a person or a product competes. It measures the ecological assets that a given population or product requires to produce the natural resources it consumes (including plant-based food and fiber products, livestock and fish products, timber and other forest products, space for urban infrastructure) and to absorb its waste, especially carbon emissions.

The Ecological Footprint tracks the use of productive surface areas. Typically these areas are: cropland, grazing land, fishing grounds, built-up land, forest area, and carbon demand on land.

On the supply side, a city, state or nation’s biocapacity represents the productivity of its ecological assets (including cropland, grazing land, forest land, fishing grounds, and built-up land). These areas, especially if left unharvested, can also serve to absorb the waste we generate, especially our carbon emissions from burning fossil fuel.

Both the Ecological Footprint and biocapacity are expressed in global hectares —globally comparable, standardized hectares with world average productivity.

Each city, state or nation’s Ecological Footprint can be compared to its biocapacity.

If a population’s Ecological Footprint exceeds the region’s biocapacity, that region runs a biocapacity deficit. Its demand for the goods and services that its land and seas can provide—fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, wood, cotton for clothing, and carbon dioxide absorption—exceeds what the region’s ecosystems can regenerate. In more popular communications, we also call this “an ecological deficit.” A region in ecological deficit meets demand by importing, liquidating its own ecological assets (such as overfishing), and/or emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. If a region’s biocapacity exceeds its Ecological Footprint, it has a biocapacity reserve.

Conceived in 1990 by Mathis Wackernagel and William Rees at the University of British Columbia, the Ecological Footprint launched the broader Footprint movement, including the carbon Footprint, and is now widely used by scientists, businesses, governments, individuals, and institutions working to monitor ecological resource use and advance sustainable development. The most prominent calculations are those produced for countries. We call those the National Footprint and Biocapacity Accounts.

A rich and accessible introduction to the theory and practice of the approach is available in the book Ecological Footprint: Managing Our Biocapacity Budget (2019).

37 thoughts on &ldquo PubMed Journals will be shut down &rdquo

This post is not very useful as it does not provide suggestions for alternatives !!

What does this mean? I followed a link to an article and I get this page? How am I supposed to see the article?!

I am in the same situation, what a ……. is that, are you kidding us?

The PubMed Journals site now redirects here, as that experiment is now over. You should be able to search and find articles on PubMed, as usual. Please email us at [email protected] if you’re having trouble.

Same lol I am supposed to research something but I guess I am kind of screwed now

Does this mean that PubMed will no longer be publicly accessible? Surely not? What DOES it mean? Where is the headlined article? Will someone reply to this? I see similar questions, but no replies.

This means that the PubMed Journals experimental site is no longer available. You can read this blog post if you’d like to know what features PubMed Journals had.

PubMed, however, is still publicly accessible.

Terrible news. I have referred so many of my students to this to help them as teachers. I guess another budget cut in the wrong place.

Yes terribly unfair and in-adapted to the actual situation, it should have been more opened instead, incredible and so disappointed !

OMG! WhAT. NOOOooo!! This is HORRIBLE NEWS! I feel like a part of me has been robbed, lost and taken from me with no regard! Say this isnt so!! WHY.

NOO pleas, still PubMed publications are more reliable

PubMed offered the ability to maximize easy access to current research from the laboratories around the world from your home computer!! in any article, citations of information could be checked for interpretation versus accuracy. Any new ideas could be explored for possibility of validity. The site leveled the playing field for a scientist in city college without a lab versus labs in Harvard or Yale. Innovation without funding versus current accepted funded theories have research results at their finger tips, free of pre-conceived prejudice. The site provides the most fertile basis and potential for new discoveries without bias. Your PubMed is a HUGE success! Continue to provide a portal for unbiased access to immediate unfolding research to foster science based creativity.

Is this because of the current Trump administration ?

At NCBI, we’re constantly working to improve our resources and serve you as best as we can. Sometimes that requires retiring tools or other resources. PubMed Journals was an NCBI Labs experiment, which means that it was always subject to changes or retirement. We hope to include features from PubMed Journals into future NCBI products.

Thanks for sharing this valuable and authentic information with us. Please share something more knowledgeable like that.
