Emory Healthcare patients can benefit from surgical implantation or injections of their own stem cells to treat chronic orthopaedic conditions. This treatment can reduce pain and provide long lasting relief from chronic tendinitis, early arthritis and cartilage damage in the joint. It uses your own body’s repair mechanisms and natural growth factors to promote healing. Why do I have chronic pain in my joints and tendons? As we age, our bodies undergo wear and tear from previous injuries, exercising and playing sports. We do not repair these injuries as well as we do when we are young. We produce less of our ‘repair’ cells (called mesenchymal stem cells) as we get older so it takes longer to recover. In some cases, the joint damage is so significant that the body cannot repair itself at all. Where do Stem Cells reside in the body? The two places in the body with an abundance of Stem Cells are your bone marrow and your adipose tissue (fat cells). These are the two places your doctor may choose to take cells from to help treat your chronic tendon or joint pain. How can Orthopaedic Stem Cell treatment help me? Stem Cells harness the healing power of your own blood and work to actually repair your damaged tissue. We isoloate stem cells from a small sample of your bone marrow or fat cells and inject or implant them directly into the damaged area. Stem cells can differentiate into specific types of cells depending on the environment they are placed, providing possible regeneration of cartilage, bone, and tendon.

T he CRSP Mutual Fund Database is designed to facilitate research on the historical performance of open-ended mutual funds by using survivor-bias-free data. The CRSP Survivor-Bias-Free US Mutual Fund Database includes a history of each mutual fund’s name, investment style, fee structure, holdings, and asset allocation. Also included are monthly total returns, monthly total net assets, monthly/daily net asset values, and dividends. Additionally, schedules of rear and front load fees, asset class codes, and management company contact information are provided. All data items are for publicly traded open-end mutual funds and begin at varying times between 1962 and 2008 depending on availability. The database is updated quarterly and distributed with a monthly lag. It is delivered in ASCII and SAS formats. Results were independently verified by a dedicated group of database researchers which included random sample selection when appropriate. Known Biases in mutual fund data The returns histories are sometimes duplicated in the database. For example, if a fund started in 1962 and split into four share classes in 1993, each new share class of the fund is permitted to inherit the entire return/performance history. This can create a bias when averaging returns across mutual funds. A selection bias favoring the historical data files of the best past performing private funds that became public does exist. The SEC has recently begun permitting some funds (and eventually probably all funds) with prior returns histories as private funds to add these returns onto the beginning of their public histories. The effect of this is that only the successful private fund histories are included in the database.

This is a sample of the kinds of stuff that you might use to build your Junk Drawer Robotics robots. The items listed and shown are some of the things and parts that can be useful for the robotics activities in this curriculum. This is not a complete list and should be used just as a reference and source for other ideas. Most of the items do not have to be exactly the same as the ones listed or shown and can be whatever you can find or have locally. You can browse in the grocery, hardware, office supply and the “dollar” stores to find different items that can be used by the youth. Sometimes inexpensive items can be used in constructing other items. A cheap toy vehicle can be taken apart. The axles and wheels, and motor if it has one, can be used to make the robots cheaper than buying new parts. Other items like a bicycle, IPod, tongs, or pliers that might be used in some activities can be borrowed for that activity. A collection of old parts and equipment can become a great learning experience for young explorers. They can find and frame problems and develop creative solutions from such items.
The research reports on results of an initial application of the Love Attitude Scale (Hendrick & Hendrick, 1986) in Serbia. The study was conducted on the sample of 127 respondents, mainly of adolescent age, from Subotica, Serbia. We explored the factor structure of the Love Attitude Scale, analyzed relationships between its subscales, and examined relevant correlates of its dimensions. We also performed extensive item analysis of the scale, and proposed several new items for the use in the revised Love Attitude Scale for Serbia. Correlates of the revised subscales correspond to those obtained with the original scale and in other countries. The results confirm cross-cultural stability of the six-dimensional structure of the Love Attitude Scale. It was concluded that the Serbian adaptation was successful, and that the translated and slightly revised scale can be used as a valid instrument for the assessment of the six love styles. Keywords: Love styles; factor analysis; romantic behavior; Serbia For many years academic psychologists had not been interested in research on love. However, the last two decades witnessed rising interest in this aspect of human psychology with many developments and research programs. One of the outcomes is a number of operationalizations of different attitudes to love, love styles, or dimensions of love. Some examples are Rubin's (1970) Love Scale, the Love Scale developed by Munro and Adams (1978), the „Erotometer‟ developed by Bardis (1978), and Sternberg‟s Triangular Love Scale (1986, 1987, 1997).
