    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy Improves Self-Efficacy, Depression, and Adjustment for Cancer Patients

    Raymond C. Nairn Thomas V. Merluzzi

    University of Notre Dame

    Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), which was developed by the authors, integrates solution focused therapy (Lindforss & Magnusson, 1997), self-regulation theory (Carver & Scheier, 1998), and self-efficacy theory (Bandura, 1997). We hypothesized that cancer patients who received MET would improve self-efficacy for coping wi…

    Abstract:

    Abstract This study investigated the effectiveness of a treatment, based on self-regulation theory, to enhance the coping self-efficacy of persons with cancer. The intervention, which is called Mastery Enhancement Therapy (MET), is based on Solution Focused Therapy. MET focuses on mastery experiences to improve the participants’ self-efficacy for coping. The participants, who volunteered for the study, were selected based their less-than-average coping self-efficacy scores and were randomly a…

    Abstract:

    Galvanic replacement reactions are widely used in the synthesis of bimetallic nanoshells. Essential to these syntheses is the design of template materials with electrochemical potentials that are low enough to facilitate the replacement of a wide variety of metals. While Cu is an attractive template from this standpoint, it has only rarely been used due to its propensity for oxidation and the associated difficulties in achieving chemically stable colloids. Here, a synthetic scheme is demonstr…

    Abstract:

    Membrane type 1 matrix metalloproteinase (MT1-MMP, MMP-14) is a transmembrane collagenase highly expressed in metastatic ovarian cancer and correlates with poor survival. Accumulating evidence shows that the cytoplasmic tail of MT1-MMP is subjected to phosphorylation, and this post-translational modification regulates enzymatic activity at the cell surface. To investigate the potential role of MT1-MMP cytoplasmic residue Thr567 phosphorylation in regulation of metastasis-associated behaviors,…

    Abstract:

    Aluminum oxyhydroxide (boehmite, AlOOH) and aluminum hydroxide (gibbsite, Al(OH)3) powders with adsorbed water were irradiated with γ-rays and 5 MeV He ions (α-particles) in order to determine overall radiation stability and chemical modification to the surface. No variation in overall phase or crystallinity due to radiolysis was observed with X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Raman spectroscopy for doses up to 2 MGy with γ-rays and 175 MGy with α-particles. Temperature programed desorption (TPD) o…

    Abstract:

    During epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) progression, intraperitoneally disseminating tumor cells and multicellular aggregates (MCAs) present in ascites fluid adhere to the peritoneum and induce retraction of the peritoneal mesothelial monolayer prior to invasion of the collagen-rich submesothelial matrix and proliferation into macro-metastases. Clinical studies have shown heterogeneity among EOC metastatic units with respect to cadherin expression profiles and invasive behavior; however, the i…

    Abstract:

    A significant but largely inaccessible survey of more than 130,000 women religious in the late 1960s is now available to scholars around the world, thanks to a digital preservation effort by the University of Notre Dame Archives and Hesburgh Libraries.

    University archivists, librarians, subject experts and digital preservation specialists collaborated to migrate The Conference of Major Superiors of Women (CMSW) Sisters’ Survey of 1967 to a digital format that researchers can access online.

    Abstract:

    On May 4, 2018, five undergraduate students from the University of Notre Dame received an Undergraduate Library Research Award. This annual award is earned by students who demonstrate exemplary research skills and utilize a breadth of library services, resources and expertise for their research or creative projects. This article highlights the 2018 awardees.
