... VERSION 2 Compared to version 1, version 2 runs without matlab. The file “Instructions.pdf” attached below explains how to install and use this application. The file “Explanation_method_examples.pptx” attached below illustrates the principle of the method and how to use the application with several examples. OVERALL DESCRIPTION (same as for version 1): We share here the data compiled to calculate the results presented in the study «A new method for analyzing sustainability performance of global supply chains and its application to material resources». In order to allow for the compilation of all results of interest, we provide an application. This application is based on the multi-regional-input output database EXIOBASE3 (version 3.4) and data to assess the potential environmental impacts of emissions and resource use. While the data for assessing the environmental impacts is provided here, the user must download the Exiobase data from the Exiobase website (due to copyright issues). The provided application allows to assess the cumulated upstream impacts of any sector or region on the globe without double-counting and to track these impacts upstream and downstream the global value chain. The application covers a broad set of environmental and socio-economic indicators and the timespan from 1995 to 2011. The methodology of this application is comprehensively explained in the study: «A new method for analyzing sustainability performance of global supply chains and its application to material resources» (e.g Section 2.1 gives a broad overview of the principle of the method).

Salt-responsive Metabolite, beta-hydroxybutyrate, Attenuates Hypertension Chakraborty, S1, Galla, S1, Cheng X1, Yeo, J1, Mell, B1, Singh V1, Yeoh BS1, Saha P1, Mathew, AV2, Vijay-Kumar, M1, Joe B*1. 1Program in Physiological Genomics, Microbiome Consortium, Center for Hypertension and Personalized Medicine, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, University of Toledo College of Medicine and Life Sciences, Toledo, OH, USA. 2 Department of Internal Medicine-Nephrology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA. *Corresponding Author: Bina Joe, email@example.com Summary Dietary salt reduction and exercise are lifestyle modifications prescribed for salt-sensitive hypertensives. While exercise is known to have prominent metabolic effects, such effects of lower dietary salt are just emerging. Studies indicate that salt has adverse effect on metabolic syndrome, of which, hypertension is a hallmark. We hypothesized that dietary salt impacts metabolism in a salt-sensitive model of hypertension. Untargeted metabolomic profiling of rats with differential salt (NaCl) diets revealed that a high salt-induced increase in blood pressure was associated with lower circulating levels of the ketone body, beta-hydroxybutyrate (βOHB). Specific rescue of the βOHB levels by nutritional supplementation of its precursor, 1,3-butanediol attenuated hypertension and protected kidney disease despite the high salt intake. This beneficial effect of βOHB was observed independent of the gut-microbiotal effects of salt or the Th17-mediated renal effects. Instead, the mechanism for the observed renoprotective effect of βOHB on salt-sensitive hypertension was the βOHB-mediated inhibition of the pro-inflammatory cascade by the Nlrp3 inflammasome. In summary, the juxtaposed effects of dietary salt and exercise on salt-sensitive hypertension, which decrease and increase βOHB respectively, indicates that nutritional supplementation of a precursor of βOHB could be considered to provide a similar benefit to salt-sensitive hypertension as exercise.

... The aim of the project is to create an optical interferometer which can detect the acoustic analogue of a supernova explosion. The fingerprint of an acoustic wave propagating from a diapason will be measured. A Michelson Morley interferometer1 will be used, whereby analysis of the interference pattern will allow for the calculation of the frequency of the diapason.

... 1) To gain comprehensive and detailed data for informing PSI's interventions with transgenders; 2) To segment the population according to consistent condom use with regular partners, consistent condom use with casual partners, and consistent water-based lubricant use; 3) To identify key determinants (OAM Opportunity, Ability and Motivation) associated with each behavior; and 4) To obtain baseline information for monitoring key indicators, behavior change, OAM determinants, and exposure to PSI Thailand's interventions. Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS) was used to collect data from 400 transgenders aged 15-35 in Pattaya. For inclusion in the study, transgenders must have been living in Pattaya for at least three months and work or socialize in hot zones, which are in North, Central and South Pattaya, at least three nights a week. The self-administered questionnaire covered demographic information, sexual behavior, condom and lubricant use, OAM determinants, and exposure to PSI's interventions. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify significant determinants of condom and water-based lubricant use. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to complete the monitoring table.
Thailand (2005): HIV/AIDS TRaC Study among Injecting Drug Users in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, and Chiang Rai First Round

... Tracking surveys serve as tools to inform programming by routinely collecting data from cross-sections of populations at risk for HIV/AIDS and other adverse health outcomes. This survey among injecting drug users (IDUs) aimed to: 1) identify and describe segments of the population in terms of needle sharing at last injection; 2) understand the needle sharing behaviors of IDUs; 3) explore the sexual behaviors and condom use of IDUs; and 4) apply study findings to interventions designed for reducing the risk of HIV transmission from needle sharing among IDUs. Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS) was used to collect data among 339 IDUs aged 15 to 45 who live or work in urban areas in Bangkok, Muang Chiang Mai District, and Muang Chiang Rai District. A screening questionnaire and main questionnaire served as survey tools. The questionnaire collected information on background characteristics, opinions about needle-sharing practices, personal drug use and sharing practices, beliefs and knowledge about HIV infection, sexual practices and condom use, and exposure to PSI products and services. Multivariate analyses were performed to identify significant factors associated with needle sharing. Simple frequencies were run on descriptive data to permit monitoring of project indicators.
