In Olympic-style weightlifting, performance is measured by the sum of the best snatch and the best clean and jerk. A determination of who is the “best” weightlifter refers to hypothetical questions such as what weight athletes with a lower body mass would be able to lift if they were athletes with a higher body mass of the same ability. We systematically test functions of body mass using fractional polynomials an their relationships to the weightlifting performance.
There is simultaneous feedback between sport performance and severity of menopausal symptoms. Athletes must balance training intensity and menopausal symptoms to achieve training goals.

Our results shed light on the positive influence of presenting female video game players with counterstereotypical traits to reduce discrimination against women in gaming.
When properties and context are not appropriately taken into account, data can speak through lies and riddles as preconditions for meaningful statistics are not met. It is much better to avoid data issues right at the beginning of a data collection than to search for statistical workarounds thereafter
Population genetic analyses of DNA from four infected dolphins grouped the pathogen Lacazia loboi in a monophyletic cluster sister to P. americana and to the other Paracoccidioides species.
Assessing the risk of a drug candidate inducing arrhythmia is a vital step in the drug development process. Due to the difficulty of directly assessing these potential arrhythmias, researchers rely on QT interval prolongation as a biomarker for arrhythmia risk. The results showed that the corrected QT values can have reduced variability and heart rate influence when correction methods consider additional variables, such as subject specific, date specific, or environment specific differences.
Motivation, barriers, and coping during COVID19 for Master weightlifters: Older athletes are motivated to maintain fitness, build strength and confidence, and compete.
To assess refinements in skin disinfection methods to augment animal welfare, this research project tested effectiveness of waterless alcohol-based antiseptic (compared to traditional skin prep methods) and delivered active warming as methods to enhance postoperative outcomes.
