Principal Component Analysis
Abstract
Individual differences in mathematical skills are typically explained by an innate capability to solve mathematical tasks. At the behavioural level this implies a consistent level of mathematical achievement that can be captured by strong relationships between tasks, as well as by a single statistical dimension that underlies performance on all mathematical tasks. To investigate this general assumption, the present study explored interrelations and dimensions of mathematical skills. For this purpose, 68 ten-year-old children from two schools were tested using nine mathematics tasks from the Basic Knowledge in Mathematics Test. Relatively low-to-moderate correlations between the mathematics tasks indicated most tasks shared less than 25% of their variance. There were four principal components, accounting for 70% of the variance in mathematical skill across tasks and participants. The high specificity in mathematical skills was discussed in relation to the principle of task specificity of learning.

Abstract
This paper focuses on the extent to which the development of ESL (English as a Second Language) word recognition skills mimics similar trajectories in same-aged EL1 (English as a First Language) children, and the extent to which phonological processing skills and rapid naming can be used to predict word recognition performance in ESL children. Two cohorts of Grade 1 ESL and EL1 primary-level children were followed for two consecutive years. Results indicated that vocabulary knowledge, a measure of language proficiency, and nonverbal intelligence were not significant predictors of word recognition in either group. Yet, by considering individual differences in phonological awareness and rapid naming, it was possible to predict substantial amounts of variance on word recognition performance six months and one year later in both language groups. Commonality analyses indicated that phonological awareness and rapid naming contributed unique variance to word recognition performance. Moreover, the profiles of not at-risk children in the EL1 and ESL groups were similar on all but the oral language measure, where EL1 children had the advantage. In addition, EL1 and ESL profiles of children who had word-recognition difficulty were similar, with low performance on rapid naming and phonological awareness. Results indicate that these measures are reliable indicators of potential reading disability among ESL children.

Abstract
The predominant theoretical perspectives in social gerontology reflect a normative bias toward adjustment of aging individuals to the society. This bias is reinforced through the methodological predelictions of most gerontologists. We outline the premises of a radical scholarship for gerontology which would provide an alternative, illustrating from selected works. A radical scholorship in gerontology would avoid the individualistic and adjustment biases, and would recognize that life in society is characterized by conflict, negotiation and compromise over politico-economic and other interests. Methodologically, it would seek to explicate the interests and aspirations of the aged in their own terms, and as relevant in the socio-historical context.

Abstract
Individuation, ego development and family negotiation of conflict were studied in 27 Norwegian families with an adolescent daughter, 16-19 years, drawn from a larger sample to represent a rectangular distribution of ego development. Individuality and Connectedness (individuation) as conceptualized and scored by Condon et al. (1984) was modified and adapted to a Norwegian material. Four factors were extracted, one related to individuality (self-assertion and separateness) and two to connectedness (clarification and acceptance). Ego development, measured by the Washington University Sentence Completion Test (Loevinger & Wessler, 1970) was related to connectedness between mother and daughter and between father and daughter, but not to individuality. Maturity of conflict negotiation was positively related to connectedness between mother and daughter and negatively to individuality between father and daughter. It was argued that for women, individuality may not be a singular goal in ego development or in individuation and that self-other differentiation of identity and interests may develop within a close relationship and not only through separation.

Abstract
It is increasingly apparent that human health is reliant on our fellow travellers, the innumerable microorganisms that inhabit our bodies. This realization has led to the concept of the superorganism, which suggests that shared metabolic and signalling pathways are crucial for optimal existence of both host and commensal microflora. This commentary focuses on implications of this paradigm for personalized medicine and therapeutics. Study of the microbiome, the collection of microorganisms inhabiting the body, may identify disease-associated microbial profiles with pathophysiological and diagnostic value. As with genomics, companies will emerge offering direct to consumer microbiome analysis. Probiotics can potentially modulate the superorganism for therapeutic benefit. However, the probiotics industry will need to undergo a transformation, with increased focus on stringent manufacturing guidelines and high-quality clinical trials. Ultimately, we suggest that healthcare will move beyond its prevailing focus on human physiology, and embrace the superorganism as a paradigm to understand disease.

Abstract
To examine the association between caregivers' work satisfaction and individualised care in different care settings for older people.
Work satisfaction in older people care settings has been associated with absenteeism, staff turnover and the quality of care delivered. The management of individuality is an important quality of care issue. Although these two issues are important there is little evidence about the possible association between them.
An exploratory and correlational survey design.
Data were collected using three questionnaires, the Individualised Care Instrument the Individualised Care Scale-Nurse and the Index of Work Satisfaction from a sample of professional nursing caregivers (n=263, response rate 71%) in care settings for older people in one health care area in Finland in 2010. Statistical analysis included descriptive statistics, correlations, analysis of variance and multiple regression analysis.
Caregivers support the patient's individuality through specific activities, perceiving that they maintain individuality in care provision whilst reporting moderate work satisfaction. The ratings of individuality assessments were the lowest in nursing homes followed by long-term care in in-patient wards. There were statistically significant correlations between work satisfaction and specific perceptions in the support of individuality. The sub-scales of the instruments used were: the Support of Individuality in general, Individuality in the Care Provided, Knowing the Person, Staff-to-Resident Communication and Staff-to-Staff Communication. Significant statistical differences in the results were found between staff working in home care, primary health care, in-patient wards and nursing homes.
Low job satisfaction can affect the provision of individualised care emphasising the need to promote individualised care at an organisational level as a means of improving work satisfaction.
Instruments to measure work satisfaction and individualised care can be used to improve care quality.
