The diminished inflammatory response in patients with febrile neutropenia secondary to chemotherapy makes it hard to discard a urinary tract infection based solely on the physical evaluation of the patient and basic urine laboratory tests. This could lead to false negative results with serious consequences to the patients. Objective: To define if the urinary tract infection is a high-risk predictor of severe complications in the pediatric patient with febrile neutropenia-related with chemotherapy and to establish the diagnostic significance of normal urine sediment in the initial study. Methods: A Cross-sectional study of diagnostic technology. We included children with ages from 2 to 18 years old, with severe febrile neutropenia related to chemotherapy, we compared patients with and without urinary tract infection and evaluated poor prognosis outcomes and analyzed the diagnostic efficiency of urinalysis.

International Academy of Science, Humanities and Arts, IASHA e.V. Freiburg, Deutschland The JOSHA Demetrios Project With the July 2017 issue, JOSHA is starting the Demetrios Project. We chose Demetrios of Phaleron, a student of Theophrastus and most probably of Aristotle, as the name patron of our project. Demetrios was instrumental in establishing the ancient Library of Alexandria, probably the largest and most significant library of the ancient world covering all aspects of Science, Humanities and the Arts in many different languages. It is our objective to open up JOSHA as a universally accessible, open access library to all languages and countries. JOSHA will focus initially on publishing and provide open-access to textbooks in any field of Science, Humanities and the Arts, to students and readers worldwide. JOSHA will publish textbooks in any language after appropriate peer review by experts in the field knowledgeable of the respective language.

I am different. Am I different?

I am different. Am I different? Although the integration of children with intellectual disabilities is improving constantly, educational materials are still lacking for the youngest age groups with the aim to introduce the idea of intellectual disabilities, and to show them that some of their peers, even though different from what we call average, are still organic and valuable members of the community. With my comic, I hope to give parents a tool to start conversations with kindergarten-age children to sensitize them to the topic and to promote openness towards children with intellectual disabilities. This project is in it's early stage, but I hope to have the opportunity to dedicate entire books to the topic in the future.

Is it uncertainty or simply the acceptance that we can never have complete control over everything? Clara lives between the worlds of acceptance, uncertainty, and control without being part of any of them. In this special night, she meets someone from another world. Someone who can fly like a bird. Someone who is brave enough to dream. Someone who makes her feel less alone. Someone special...
