Patients were not formally involved in developing this specific study design. We have developed a publicly available website ( ) that allows any patient or member of the public to contact us regarding this study or the broader OpenSAFELY project. This feedback will be used to refine and prioritize our OpenSAFELY activities.

After a brief time as director of projects for the Hershey Cancer Institute at Penn State University Hershey Medical College, Dr. Wang successfully completed postgraduate training with an internship and residency in internal medicine at Montefiore Mount Vernon Hospital in New York, and Banner-University Medical Center in Phoenix, respectively. He completed his hematology-oncology fellowship training at Penn State Hershey Medical College in Pennsylvania.

The United States Air Force retired to the custody of the National Archives its records on Project BLUE BOOK relating to the investigations of unidentified flying objects. Project BLUE BOOK has been declassified and the records are available for examination in our research room. The project closed in 1969 and we have no information on sightings after that date.
Textual records of Project BLUE BOOK (the documentation relating to investigations of unidentified flying objects), excluding names of people involved in the sightings, are now available for research in the National Archives Building. The records include approximately 2 cubic feet of unarranged project or administrative files, 37 cubic feet of case files in which individual sightings are arranged chronologically, and 3 cubic feet of records relating to the Office of Special Investigations (OSI), portions of which are arranged chronologically, by OSI district, and by overseas command. A cubic foot of records comprises about 2,000 pages. Finding aids for these records include a file list for the project files and an index to individual sightings, entered by date and location.
From 1947 to 1969, a total of 12, 618 sightings were reported to Project BLUE BOOK. Of these 701 remain \"Unidentified.\" The project was headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, whose personnel no longer receive, document or investigate UFO reports.
\"The Declassification office of the National Security Council has informed us that it has no record of any declassification action having been taken on this memorandum or any other documents on this alleged project ...\"
The Air Force research did not locate or develop any information that the \"Roswell Incident\" was a UFO event nor was there any indication of a \"cover-up\" by the Government. Information obtained through exhaustive records searches and interviews indicated that the materials recovered near Roswell was consistent with a balloon devise of the type used in a then classified project. No records indicated or even hinted that the recovery of \"alien\" bodies or extraterrestrial materials.
All of the variables used in the analysis were joined to census tract shapefiles generated by the US Census Bureau. Obesity rates were reported by the 500 Cities Project as an estimated percentage of adults within a census tract with a body mass index of 30.0 kg/m2 or greater for the year 2014 and can be downloaded directly from the project website.Footnote 2 In total, there were 815 suitable tracts identified within the Phoenix metropolitan area.Footnote 3 A variety of different explanatory variables were selectively chosen to develop a robust model (Table 1), which are explained below.
The data generated by the 500 Cities Project allows for fine-scale evaluation of obesity at the metropolitan level for census tracts by downsampling from counties using statistical techniques [53,54,55,56]. Data from the project fall into three general categories: health outcomes, prevention, and unhealthy behaviors. Initially, a large number of potential variables were drawn from the project dataset, including those associated with unhealthy behaviors, such as smoking, drinking, lack of sleep, physical activity, and health insurance. However, these variables exhibited high collinearity based on their global variance inflation factors (VIFs) when evaluated against one another (i.e., greater than 10) or pose the issue of endogeneity. Collinearity occurs when the variables represent redundant information. For example, those who frequently smoke and drink often do so in tandem , and if both behaviors are conducive to obesity than it is not possible to decipher the individual relationships between these variables. Endogeneity occurs when relationships are circular and it is not possible to identify a potential direction of causality. For example, the physical activity variable was not included in the model because it is not clear whether or not lower physical activity causes higher obesity rates or if higher obesity rates cause individuals to engage in less physical activity [58, 59]. Ultimately, the percentage of individuals who reported undergoing annual checkups was the only explanatory variable from the 500 Cities Project included in the study due to the issues described above. This variable is defined as the number of individuals that received at least one routine doctor visit, such as an annual physical examination, and does not include visits for specific ailments. Primary care is frequently cited as a means of reducing the likelihood of whether or not an individual will be susceptible to obesity and the negative health conditions associated with it [49, 60,61,62,63].

The project title is: Assessing the Director of Clinical Education roles/responsibilities task fit impact: A Delphi Study. The grant, in the amount of $9187.75, will be base out of the University of Cincinnati Physical Therapy program.
Christine McCallum is representing the NCCE (ACAPT) in the first dual collaborative project with the Clinical Education SIG (APTA). She is co-leading the development of a Clinical Education Placement Process Taskforce, which will investigate the future of clinical education student placements and make recommendations to ACAPT and the Academy of Physical Therapy Education.

Dr. Pamela Ritzline and her colleagues have their project titled: \"Diagnostic and Treatment Classification of Patients with Temporomandibular Disorders and/or Headaches\" accepted for presentation by the following Section: Orthopaedics: Pain Management for CSM 2016.
Bone or alloplastic implant removal until complete healing of the surgical field has occurred is the usual management of an infected CP. In a close future, a project to develop materials capable of resisting colonization and more effective pharmacological treatment against infections will be necessary.
