Many people fear the approach of 1984. Why? Because in their minds too many of George Orwell's dark prophecies in his 1948 novel, 1984, appear to be coming true.

Abstract

This is the first study to evaluate ADHD-hyperactive/impulsive subtype in a large clinical sample of adults with ADHD. The Quality of Life, Effectiveness, Safety and Tolerability (QuEST) study included 725 adults who received clinician diagnoses of any ADHD sub-type. Cross-sectional baseline data from 691 patients diagnosed with the hyperactive/impulsive (HI), inattentive (IA) and combined sub-types were used to compare the groups on the clinician administered ADHD-RS, clinical features and health-related quality of life. A consistent pattern of differences was found between the ADHD-I and combined subtypes, with the combined subtype being more likely to be diagnosed in childhood, more severe symptom severity and lower HRQL. Twenty-three patients out of the total sample of 691 patients (3%) received a clinician diagnosis of ADHD -hyperactive/impulsive subtype. Review of the ratings on the ADHD-RS-IV demonstrated, however, that this group had ratings of inattention comparable to the inattentive group. There were no significant differences found between the ADHD-HI and the other subtypes in symptom severity, functioning or quality of life. The hyperactive/impulsive subtype group identified by clinicians in this study was not significantly different from the rest of the sample. By contrast, significant differences were found between the inattentive and combined types. This suggests that in adults, hyperactivity declines and inattention remains significant, making the hyperactive/impulsive sub-type as defined by childhood criteria a very rare condition and raising questions as to the validity of the HI subtype in adults.

Abstract

Although the widely appreciated advantages of electronic journals in the sciences would indicate that they should be the preferred form of publication, they persist in print as well. The data on the relative use of bound and unbound journals in an academic biology library suggest that almost all of the journals studied are suitable as electronic only; only a very few are reasonable choices in both print and electronic formats. Most scientific articles might be better suited for publication not in journals at all, but rather in a suitable Internet‐based repository.

Abstract

In this chapter, the authors take a close look at the current discourse of food system relocalization. From the perspective of theories of justice and theories of neoliberalism, food relocalization is wrapped up in a problematic, and largely unexamined, communitarian discourse on social justice. The example for California's localized governance of pesticide drift demonstrates that localization can effectively make social justice problems invisible. The authors also look at the EU context, where a different form of localization discourse emphasizes the local capture of rents in the value chain as a neoliberal strategy of territorial valorization. Examining Marsden et al.'s case study of one of these localization projects in the UK, the authors argue that this strategy does not necessarily lead to more equitable forms of rural development. In fact, US and EU discourses are basically two sides of the same coin. Specifically, in neoliberal biopolitical form, they both obscure politics, behind either the discourse of “value” in the EU or “values” in the US. Rather than rejecting localism, however, the authors conclude by arguing for a more “reflexive” localism that harnesses the power of this strategy while consciously struggling against inequality in local arenas.

Abstract

Documents a case study in the use of Shainin Design of Experiments in an industrial honing operation. Provides an overview of the process which attempts to reduce process variability by isolating the most influential factor (Red X). Shows the details of the week‐long experiment and gives some analysis of the data. Uses multiple statistical techniques to identify Red X and discusses corrective action. Suggests that this methodology is very practical and easily executable in many settings, making it one of the most approachable quality techniques available.

Abstract

What does the future have in store for our organization and for us? Will it be good, bad, indifferent? Will we plan effectively, make the right managerial decisions and live happily ever after? Or will we be undercut or wiped out by the twin monsters “tion” and “sion”—competition, regulation, inflation, recession, pollution, or atomic explosion?
