Traditionally data processing in applied biomechanics has relied on descriptive approaches. Although these are effective exploratory techniques, they may not provide an understanding of the interaction between the variables that describe the event across repeated sampling. Factor analysis is a stati...

Exercise-induced cardiovascular (CV) events, particularly sudden cardiac death (SCD), attract considerable media attention in the context of the safety of exercise for the general population. As a result, concern about the safety of exercise participation is a common topic during routine office chec...

Recent reports that habitual marathon runners demonstrate higher levels of stiffness and cardiovascular risk factors have been of great interest to the medical and scientific community. Ultra-marathon running, that is any distance >42.2 km, is increasing in popularity; however, little is known regar...

Purpose: We explored dietetic students' beliefs about what becoming a dietitian means. Methods: A phenomenological approach to inquiry was used. Thirteen undergraduate students enrolled in a dietetics program were interviewed, and data were analyzed thematically. Results: The overarching theme was s...

Human milk TAG contain 20–25% 16:0, with over 70% of the 16:0 at the TAG sn-2 position. The benefits of TAG sn-2 16:0 have been ascribed to reducing 16:0 excretion as insoluble fatty acid soaps. This study builds on knowledge that infants conserve milk TG sn-2 16:0 post-absorption. Comparison of p...
