TL;DR: This review article focuses upon how apoptosis, autophagy, and UPR are involved in the regulation of cellular responses to arboviruses, influenza virus and HIV infections.
Abstract: Virus infection induces different cellular responses in infected cells. These include cellular stress responses like autophagy and unfolded protein response (UPR). Both autophagy and UPR are connec...
TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore food-related activities and their impacts on sustainable livelihood assets, food sovereignty, and food security, and provide insight for future food related community development based on community food assessments conducted in 14 Northern Manitoba communities.
Abstract: This article explores food-related activities and their impacts on sustainable livelihood assets, food sovereignty, and food security, and provides insight for future food-related community development. Analysis is based on community food assessments conducted in 14 Northern Manitoba communities and included a food security survey, price survey, and interviews. The lack of community control over development in First Nation and other Northern remote and rural communities in Northern Manitoba is found to undermine both food sovereignty and sustainable livelihoods, while creating high levels of food insecurity. According to logit models, sharing country foods increases food sovereignty and sustainable livelihoods, and has a stronger relationship to food security than either road access to retail stores in urban centres or increased competition between stores. The model predicts that rates of food insecurity for a community with a country foods program and with access to public transit and roads at 95% would be lower than the Canadian average of 92%. RESUME Cet article explore les activites relatives a l’alimentation et leur impact sur les biens durables ainsi que sur la souverainete et la securite alimentaires tout en ouvrant des perspectives sur le developpement communautaire futur relatif a l’alimentation. L’analyse se fonde sur une recherche menee dans quatorze communautes du nord du Manitoba et comprend un premier sondage sur la securite alimentaire, un second sondage sur les prix, et des entrevues. Le manque de controle du developpement dans les communautes reculees du nord du Manitoba, tant autochtones que non-autochtones, mine a la fois la souverainete alimentaire et les moyens d’existence durables tout en provoquant de hauts niveaux d’insecurite alimentaire. Selon un modele Logit, le partage d’aliments locaux permet une souverainete alimentaire et une autonomie durable tout en ayant un meilleur impact sur la securite alimentaire que celui obtenu par l’acces routier aux supermarches des centres urbains ou par une concurrence accrue entre detaillants. Le modele indique meme que les taux d’insecurite alimentaire pour une communaute rurale ayant un programme de nourriture locale et l’acces au transport en commun seraient, a 95%, inferieurs a la moyenne canadienne de 92%.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors evaluated the utilization of a low-cost UAV digital imaging platform developed in Manitoba, Canada for emergency response situations, which allows for the timely acquisition of high resolution imagery during emergency situations by personnel with relatively limited UAV flight training.
Abstract: This research project evaluates the utilization of a low-cost Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) digital imaging platform developed in Manitoba, Canada for emergency response situations. Such a platform allows for the timely acquisition of high resolution imagery during emergency situations by personnel with relatively limited UAV flight training.

TL;DR: In this article, a mathematical model is presented to calculate the optimal herbicide application rate using geostatistical models of uncertainty in weed density combined with principles from decision-making.
Abstract: Summary Weed competition can decrease crop yield and profit. Herbicides are applied to reduce weed populations, minimize crop loss and maximize profit. Traditional practice is to apply herbicides at a uniform rate over an entire field. Complete knowledge of the weed distribution and appropriate instrumentation on the spraying equipment would allow the farm manager to apply the correct locally varying herbicide application rate. The locally variable rate would be greater in areas of high weed density and less where there are few weeds. A locally varying treatment would have both economic and environmental advantages. A major challenge facing farm managers is the unavoidable uncertainty in the spatial distribution of weeds in any particular field. This uncertainty in weed distribution influences the optimal locally varying herbicide rate. A mathematical model is presented to calculate the optimal herbicide application rate using geostatistical models of uncertainty in weed density combined with principles from decision making. Weed data from a 34-ha field near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, illustrate the application of these tools. Weed control was achieved with a significant reduction in total herbicide use.

TL;DR: This article investigated faculty attitudes towards student violations of academic integrity in Canada using a qualitative review of 17 universities' academic integrity/dishonesty policies combined with a quantitative survey of faculty members' attitudes and behaviours around academic integrity and dishonesty.
Abstract: This study investigated faculty attitudes towards student violations of academic integrity in Canada using a qualitative review of 17 universities’ academic integrity/dishonesty policies combined with a quantitative survey of faculty members’ (N = 412) attitudes and behaviours around academic integrity and dishonesty. Results showed that 53.1% of survey respondents see academic dishonesty as a worsening problem at their institutions. Generally, they believe their respective institutional policies are sound in principle but fail in application. Two of the major factors identified by faculty as contributing to academic dishonesty are administrative. Many faculty members feel unsupported by their administration and are reluctant to formally report academic dishonesty due to the excessive burdens of dealing with paperwork and providing proof. Faculty members also cite unprepared students and international students who struggle with language issues and the Canadian academic context as major contributors to academic dishonesty. This study concludes with recommendations for educators and recommendations for future research.
