Transcript: Survivorship Curve Before and After Influenza Vaccine Cady Houghton Procedure Background Experimental Design Methods Research Question 1) A data base of cemeteries was looked up to find death dates and information. 2) From the data base information was put into a google drive document. 3) 40 people dying before the 1945 influenza vaccine were put into one chart showing the ages of death. 4) 40 people dying after the 1945 influenza vaccine were put into another chart also showing ages of death. 5) Both charts of groups of people were converted into a life history table. 6) From each life history table the data was put into another chart to make two survivorship curve charts. 7) The survivorship curve charts were put into one survivorship curve chart to show the difference in curves. A laptop was used for this lab. If the influenza vaccine works then if we compare the survivorship curve of before and after the vaccine it will show people living longer because the vaccine will be decreasing the death rate. The independent variable in this experiment is the influenza vaccine. The dependent variable is the death rate in this experiment. The exponential variables in this experiment are the other disease epidemics during the time period the data was chosen from. The control is the survivorship curve before the influenza vaccine and the experimental is the survivorship curve after the influenza vaccine. The survivorship curves of before and after the influenza vaccine was created are both Type I survivorship curves. They also have the caracteristics for K-selected species. While they are both Type I and K-selected species, the survivorship curve after the influenza vaccine was created had a decrease in death rates between 20 and 70 years of age of about .5 #/1,000 surviving. Then, towards the 75 and 90 years range, the #/1000 surviving leveled out and became extremely similar in curves. Did people die younger before the influenza vaccine was created? In comparing survivorship curves a Log10 scale is used for its ability to show you greater numbers in a more readable way and to show same mortality with the same curve when two scales are put together. In a Log10 scale there are three Types of information. The first, Type 1, are mainly humans. Type I survivorship curves are characterized by high survival in early and middle life, followed by a rapid decline in survivorship in later life. Type 2 is mainly birds and Type 3 is mainly reptiles. Within these Types are two categories of species, K-Selected, or Equilibrium, species and R-Selected, or Opportunist, species. K-Selected species usually have stable resources and a stable environment, and this is usually what humans are categorized as. R-Selected species are usually whose population size tends to fluctuate greatly in reaction to variations in the environment. Comparing the survivorship curves, defined as a graph showing the number or proportion of individuals surviving at each age for a given species or group cohort, before and after the influenza vaccine was created will show if the vaccine helped increase the population. Before the 1940s when the influenza vaccine was created, the epidemic was particularly deadly in US Army training camps, where the death rate was as high as 80% in some camps. Death rate is usually calculated as the number of deaths per one thousand people per year. usually calculated as the number of deaths per one thousand people per year. The US military was getting hit with influenza the most forcing them to developed the first approved vaccine for influenza, which was used in the Second World War. Studying this specific survivorship curve will also help to tell if their were more survival rates in the US military during the time. Results With the original research question in mind, before the influenza vaccine was created people were dying younger. This question was answered by the survivorship curve graph comparing the curves before and after the influenza vaccine. As the graph shows between 20 and 70 years of age there is a significant difference in curves, meaning that the death rate before the vaccine in that time period was increased more than after the vaccine was created. From that specific area of the graph it can be concluded that people were dying younger before the influenza vaccine was created, thus the hypothesis was correct. For future study it would be interesting to see the survivorship curve in the US military before and after the vaccine not just the population in general. Because the US military was the one who invented it because they were the one being impacted with the death rate from the influenza epidemic the most, the survivorship curve would have a chance of being more predominant.

Transcript: Decreasing Stress Among College Students By: Ashlee Lavan Abstract The following will analyze two studies done that were used to measure stress and anxiety and how to reduce it. Ultimately, both are intended to see how one can decrease stress among college students by participating in different stress reliever activities. However, each conducts unique forms of study among their student participants. The first article, A Comparison of Four Stress Reduction Modalities on Measures of Stress among University Students, discussed different things that can be used to reduce stress among college students. It measured in particular four forms of stress relievers and which one was the most effective among everyone. 1st study The second article, Mindfulness Practices in a Developmental Psychology Class: Student Outcomes, Practical Strategies, and Future Directions, also uses college students for their study but in this one they do an experiment with two different groups. The goal is to see which group shows decreasing levels of stress and anxiety. 2nd study What was the purpose of the two studies? Introduction The purpose of the study is to examine four stress relievers for college students due to the high numbers of people in college being stressed which leads to other diseases and disorders. The researchers seek to answer how to help students with stress that are inexpensive and easy to implement. The study was meant to examine four stress relievers which included a massage chair, chi machine, rejuvenation lounger, and meditation. 1st study The goal of this study is to compare student’s participation in classroom-based mindfulness practices and changes in their mindfulness and psychological well- being. The idea was the students in the class with the mindfulness component would result in a decrease of stress and anxiety when compared to the other group of students. 2nd study Who participated in the studies? What did the researchers ask the participants to do? Method Most of the patients were from Northern Utah and attended Weber State University that consisted of mostly Caucasian people. The study used students who went to a university stress relief center and collected this data from February 2015 to August 2017. The data included each student’s name, gender, and time they came in as well as their PS level and the stress management they were participating in. Their blood pressure and HR were also measured before and after. 1st study The participants consisted of 51 undergraduate students enrolled in upper- level psychology classes at a liberal arts institution. Twenty- six of those students were enrolled in the class with the mindfulness component and the other twenty- five students were in the class that did not include mindfulness. The mindfulness group would take the first 5-10 minutes of class to do mindfulness practices. They were also expected to practice mindfulness on their own at least three times a week outside of class and record their exercises in a log that had to be turned in with periodic reflection papers. 2nd study What did the researchers find? Results Both genders used the stress center almost equally where the massage chair and sitting meditating were most popular in males. Whereas, the rejuvenation lounger and chi machine were more popular for females. The modality used the most however among both was the massage chair and the sitting meditation being the least. The independent variable in the study was the four relaxation methods and the dependent variables included the PS, SBP, DBP, and HR. The dependent variables would then be compared from before the relaxation method to then after they finished. Gain scores would be accumulated and compared to each stress reliever method. 1st study The researchers took the results of how each student was at the beginning of the semester and then again at the end of the semester based on the group they were in. The first variable measured was anxiety and both the mindfulness and comparison group had increased numbers. Second variable measured was perceived stress, the mindfulness group numbers decreased but the comparison groups increased. Third variable measured was self- compassion, the mindfulness group decreased and the comparison group increased. Last but not least, mindfulness was measured and was shown to decrease in both groups. 2nd study What are some strengths and weaknesses? How is this information useful? Discussion Some strengths of this article include good stress relief examples and how helpful they are for college students even after one session. The results show that any time spent using one of these methods would reduce one’s PS and HR putting you in a better mind set. On the other hand, some weaknesses involve the fact of human error, incomplete recordings, and participant selection limitations. This information is useful to us because this is a model that should be implemented at other colleges or jobs. Investing in something that relieves
