 Angewandte Chemie International Edition Trisulfide‐Bond Acenes for Organic BatteriesElectrifying sulfur: Single crystals of tetrathiotetracene (TTT) and hexathiapentacene (HTP) were synthesized using a zone‐melting chemical‐vapor‐transport method. When applied as organic battery electrodes, HTP shows a superior performance, which is linked to different S–S bonding scenarios compared with TTT. The number of adjacent sulfur atoms affects the character of the S–S bonds, which is critical for the design...

Timing of Pavlik Harness Initiation: Can We Wait?Background: Developmental dysplasia of the hip is effectively treated with a Pavlik harness (PH) within the first 6 months of life. Over 80% of unstable hips in the newborn period will naturally stabilize by 2 months of age. If there is no difference in the effectiveness of initiating PH treatment at 1 week compared with 4 weeks of age, waiting may allow the hips to naturally stabilize and avoid treatment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether...

Harms of Screening Screening increases detection of indolent, unsuspected, and asymptomatic prostate cancer. Any potential benefits derived from screening asymptomatic men need to be weighed against the harms of screening and diagnostic procedures and treatments for prostate cancer. These harms are particularly burdensome to men with false-positive screening results and men who are unnecessarily treated because of overdiagnosis.An unintended consequence of screening and biopsy is the erroneous assumption...

During Cycling What Limits Maximum Mechanical Power Output at Cadences above 120 rpm?Purpose A key determinant of muscle coordination and maximum power output during cycling is pedalling cadence. During cycling the neuromuscular system may select from numerous solutions that solve the task demands while producing the same result. For more challenging tasks fewer solutions will be available. Changes in the variability of individual muscle excitations (EMG) and multi-muscle coordination, quantified...

Vaccines: A public health success story Throughout U.S. history, people have benefited from improvements in the field of public health. The availability of clean water, the development of sewage systems, and other effective interventions worked to cut the rate of disease in entire segments of the population at relatively low cost. Vaccination is an intervention that has proved effective in terms of cost and effort in protecting the population from disease.

A Multi-criteria Decision Analysis of Co-substrate Selection to Improve Biowaste Composting: a Mathematical Model Applied to ColombiaAbstractSeveral physicochemical properties of biowaste can limit its composting. The incorporation of bulking agents (BA) and amendment materials (AM) is the most frequently applied operational approach to overcome such substrate limitations. This work proposes a decision model to optimally select bulking agents and amendment materials by applying a multicriteria analysis....
