How society treats smoking

, : How society treats smoking. Israel Journal of Health Policy Research 1(1): 29-29

: Bans on smoking in bars and other public places can make an important contribution to public health. However, for these bans to be effective, they require broad public support. Qualitative studies of the attitudes and perceptions of bar owners and patrons can help public health professionals identify the steps needed to promote public support for smoking bans. Such studies can also generate narratives and quotes that can help public health professionals translate findings on perceptions and attitudes into effective public education campaigns and related policy changes.

Sequential viewing of two orthogonally related patterns produces an afterimage of the first pattern. We report an experiment that quantifies some properties of this type of afterimage. It is shown that it is important for the two patterns to have...

Dynactin links cytoplasmic dynein and other motors to cargo and is involved in organizing radial microtubule arrays. The largest subunit of dynactin, p150(glued), binds the dynein intermediate chain and has an N-terminal microtubule-binding domain...
