Talk to me, Alexa

We cannot imagine modern day world without new technologies. The same is true about librarianship. Our speaker - Irene Lopatovska is an Associate Professor at the School of Information at Pratt Institute in New York, NY. Dr. Lopatovska graduated from Rutgers University with a Ph.D. in Information Science. Together with our guests and colleagues, Dr. Lopatovska discussed cutting edge technologies and how they can be applied in our sphere of interest.

Наукова бібліотека НаУКМА / Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Library received a very interesting book as a gift. Would like to know more - than read the information below.

Interesting Kyiv (see in our catalogue )
The book includes 120 fascinating, concise articles about the most prominent symbols of the capital of Ukraine – from the official Lavra, St. Sophia’s Cathedral and Khreschatyk, to local tips and favorites, like minibuses or the savory pie “perepichka”.
Each article covers a two-page spread and includes a short description, an “avatar”, a QR-code with GPS coordinates, and, of course, beautiful pictures. The articles are written by locals, with the idea
that the book will be read by someone not acquainted with the reality of our city. In about 200-250 words, the authors tried to reveal each attraction.

Reading one article takes just two minutes, making the book a nice companion to a cup of coffee, or an easy read during a commute.
The book is hard to define. It’s not your average city guide, or a photo-album, or a phone directory. “Interesting Kyiv” combines it all; the owner of this book can skip buying a traditional guidebook or a set of postcards with scenes of the city, and even won’t need to check Wikipedia for details – all of the most essential and interesting things to know about the city are collected in this one book.
The editors took great care with the book’s translation – that’s why we asked John Bailey, British cinematographer and Cannes Lions Festival awardee, to review it carefully.
Note the book’s convenient format – it is small enough to fit into a purse, yet big enough to show the city in all its glory, with a large photo, not those tiny little pictures you usually find in travel guides.
“Interesting Kyiv” is not just a book, it’s a luxurious souvenir, made from quality materials: Arctic Paper G-Print coated matte paper, velvet lamination film, UV-coating, and an additional bronze dye on the cover. With thread bookbinding, the book opens easily and firmly – unlike most small-sized travel guides. It feels good to hold it in your hands, and it’s a wonderful present for a friend.

Accessed 29 Jan. 2019. Objective—To determine the effectiveness of clinical examination, chest radiography, and electrocardiography compared with echocardiography in detecting congenital heart disease early in the life of children with Down's syndrome. Design—Prospective two year screening survey. Setting—Regional paediatric cardiology service, Northern Ireland. Patients—81 newborn infants with Down's syndrome born in Northern Ireland between November 1987 and November 1989. Interventions—Clinical examination, chest radiography, and electrocardiography soon after birth followed by cross sectional Doppler echocardiography. Main outcome measures—Diagnostic ability of clinical examination, radiography, and electrocardiography compared with echocardiographic findings. Results—34 babies had congenital heart disease detected by echocardiography (13 had atrioventricular septal defects, seven secundum atrial septal defects, six a solitary patent ductus arteriosus, five isolated ventricular septal defects, and three combinations of heart defects). Individual examination methods were insensitive (the sensitivity of clinical examination was 0.53, of radiography 0.44, and of electrocardiography 0.41) but highly specific (the specificity of clinical examination was 0.94, of radiography 0.98, and of electrocardiography 1.0), although sensitivity improved when the three techniques were combined (the sensitivity was 0.71, the specificity 0.91). Conclusion—Echocardiography performed early in life can detect congenital heart disease that might otherwise be missed. Early detection may help prevent complications such as pulmonary vascular disease that may adversely affect the outcome of cardiac surgery.

Velde, E. T. Vander, et al. “CONCOR, an Initiative towards a National Registry and DNA-Bank of Patients with Congenital Heart Disease in the Netherlands: Rationale, Design, and First Results.” Vol. 20, no. 6, 2005, pp. 549–557. JSTOR, www.jstor.org.vlib.interchange.at/stable/25047491. Accessed 29 Jan. 2019. [Introduction: Survival of patients with congenital heart disease has dramatically improved after surgical repair became available 40 years ago. Instead of a mortality of 85% during childhood following the natural course, over 85% of these infants are now expected to reach adulthood. However, data on long-term outcome is scarce due to the lack of large, national registries. Moreover, little is known about the genetic basis of congenital heart defects. In 2000, the Interuniversity Cardiology Institute of the Netherlands and the Netherlands Heart Foundation have taken the initiative to develop a national registry and DNA-bank of patients with congenital heart disease in the Netherlands named CONCOR. Objectives: The aims of the CONCOR project are to facilitate investigation of the prevalence and long-term outcome of specific congenital heart defects and their treatment, to develop an efficient organisational structure for the improvement of healthcare for patients with congenital heart disease, and to allow investigation of the molecular basis of congenital heart defects. Methods: After informed consent, research nurses enter data of participating patients into the CONCOR database using a web application. Data is transferred over the Internet via a secure connection. About 20 ml blood is withdrawn from the patient, and the DNA is isolated and stored. From each participating patient family history on congenital heart disease is obtained. Results: Within two and a half years more than 4200 patients have agreed to participate. More than 99% of the patients that were asked have given their consent to participate in CONCOR. From 60% of these patients DNA has already been obtained. Mean age of the patients included is 34 years; more than 85% of the patients are younger than 45 years. Late complications occur frequently and the incidence increases with advancing age. 18% of the patients are known with supraventricular or ventricular arrhythmias. 2% of the included patients suffered a cerebrovascular accident, 139 (3%) had endocarditis. 6% of the patients has pulmonary hypertension or Eisenmenger syndrome. More than 15% of the patients reported an affected family member with congenital heart disease in the first, second, or third degree. 6% has an affected first-degree relative, and 4% a second-degree relative. Already 10 research projects have started using the CONCOR data and DNA. Conclusion: The population of patients with congenital heart disease is young and rapidly growing. Late complications occur frequently and the incidence increases with advances age. The CONCOR registry and DNA-bank facilitates research on prevalence and long-term outcome and allows investigation of the molecular basis of congenital heart disease.]

Accessed 29 Jan. 2019. [Study objective-The aim was to examine if there is an effect of fathers' age and of birth order on the occurrence of congenital heart disease. Design-This was a hospital based case-referent study including use of birth defects surveillance data. Subjects-Subjects were 497 cases of congenital heart disease aged between 3 months and 5 years, born in Beijing and Hebei Province, China; 6222 children without congenital heart disease serve as reference baseline. Measurements and main results-With stratified analysis and logistic regression analyses, congenital heart disease was found to be associated with fathers' age < 25 years (odds ratio 2·63), independent of mothers' age and of birth order. There was also evidence to show a higher birth order effect on the occurrence of congenital heart disease independent of parental ages. Conclusion-Higher birth order and fathers aged < 25 years were both independently associated with some categories of congenital heart disease and with congenital heart disease overall.]
