    Description: Buchheit, M, Lefebvre, B, Laursen, PB, and Ahmaidi, S. Reliability, usefulness and validity of the 30-15 intermittent ice test in young elite ice hockey players. J Strength Cond Res 25(5)1457-1464, 2011-The purpose of this study was to examine the reliability, usefulness, and validity of the 30-15 Intermittent Ice Test (30-15IIT) in 17 young elite ice hockey players. For the reliability and usefulness study, players performed the 30-15IIT 7 days apart. For the validity study, data derived from the first 30-15IIT were compared with those obtained from the 30-15 Intermittent Fitness Test (30-15IFT, the running version of this test used as a reference marker for its ability to assess cardiovascular fitness in the field, that is, o2peak). Maximal speed, heart rate at exhaustion (HRpeak) and postexercise blood-lactate levels ([La]b) were collected for all tests, whereas submaximal HR was taken at stages 4 and 8 (HRstage4 and HRstage8) during the 30-15IIT. All intra-class correlation coefficients were 〉0.94. Coefficients of variation were 1.6% (90% CI, 1.3-2.3), 1.7% (1.3-2.8), 1.4% (1.0-2.2), and 0.7% (0.5-1.1) for maximal skating speed, HRstage4, HRstage8, and HRpeak, respectively. Correlations between maximal velocities and HRpeak obtained for the 30-15IIT vs. 30-15IFT were very large (r = 0.72) and large (r = 0.61), respectively. Maximal skating speed was also largely correlated to estimated o2peak (r = 0.71). There was however no correlation for [La]b values between both tests (r = 0.42). These results highlight the specificity of the on-ice 30-15IIT and show it to be a reliable and valid test for assessing cardiorespiratory fitness in young elite players. Coaches could interpret a change in performance of at least 2 stages, or a change in submaximal HR of more than 8% (≈8 b·min) during the eighth stage to be a meaningful change in skating fitness.

    Description: This book offers new critical approaches for the study of adaptations, abridgments, translations, parodies, and mash-ups that occur internationally in contemporary children’s culture. It follows recent shifts in adaptation studies that call for a move beyond fidelity criticism, a paradigm that measures the success of an adaptation by the level of fidelity to the "original" text, toward a methodology that considers the adaptation to be always already in conversation with the adapted text. This book visits children’s literature and culture in order to consider the generic, pedagogical, and ideological underpinnings that drive both the process and the product. Focusing on novels as well as folktales, films, graphic novels, and anime, the authors consider the challenges inherent in transforming the work of authors such as William Shakespeare, Charles Perrault, L.M. Montgomery, Laura Ingalls Wilder, and A.A. Milne into new forms that are palatable for later audiences particularly when—for perceived ideological or political reasons—the textual transformation is not only unavoidable but entirely necessary. Contributors consider the challenges inherent in transforming stories and characters from one type of text to another, across genres, languages, and time, offering a range of new models that will inform future scholarship. Benjamin Lefebvre is a Visiting Research Fellow at the TransCanada Institute at the University of Guelph and a Research Associate at the Centre for Research in Young People's Texts and Cultures at the University of Winnipeg, Canada. "Strengths of the work are its inclusion of genres little known to a North American audience (Indian graphic novels, Vietnamese folktales, Polish versions of Cinderella, or the Chalet School series), and its diversity of critical approaches (cultural identity, "otherness," queer theory, postcolonial theory, among others). The contributors underscore how these stories help readers develop a burgeoning social consciousness. Summing Up: Recommended." - V. A. Murrenus Pilmaier, University of Wisconsin Sheboygan in CHOICE "A strong collection. . . . Lefebvre has found an admirable mixture of studies situated - like the contributors themselves - in a variety of cultural contexts, and at many productive points within adaptation studies and children's literary studies. His eclectic approach celebrates the expansion of a field in the act of leaping across traditional borders." - Paul Tiessen, Wilfrid Laurier University in Jeunesse: Young People, Texts, Cultures "With this volume, Lefebvre . . . provides a rich starting place for children's literature scholars to enter existing interdisciplinary discussions about how stories evolve across cultures and genres in this age of rapid globalization. . . . The essays . . . provide an introduction to translating adaptation theory into practice in new and exciting ways that can serve as models both to experienced scholars who seek to think beyond fidelity criticism and to students who are just starting to think about the implications of adaptation across history, genre, and culture." - Lisa Rowe Fraustino, Eastern Connecticut State University in Children's Literature "Lefebvre focuses this collection on the various ideologies encouraged by and concealed within the cultural translations required by adaptation. Considered together, these eleven thought-provoking essays thus begin to provide a global, transformational account of the ways in which textual transformations for children must comprehend and contend with difference, marginality, borderlands, migration, alterity, and other cultural collisions." - Balaka Basu, University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Children's Literature Association Quarterly "A solid and varied study on textual transformations as they relate to gender, historical context, and cultures. . . . Textual Transformations in Children's Literature is a book that represents an impressive and wide range of works, which provide a foundational and introductory framework for a conceptualization of the relationship between the text and its transformative forces." - Maria Fernandez-Lamarque, Texas A&M University-Commerce in International Research in Children's Literature "The considerable intellectual creativity, freedom, and attention to diversity demonstrated in Textual Transformations opens a much-needed forum on adaptation in children's literature studies. . . . Chapter after chapter demonstrates how a clearer understanding of adaptation theory furthers our understanding of even our most familiar texts." - M. Tyler Sasser, University of Southern Mississippi in The Lion and the Unicorn "Both children's literature and adaptation studies are well served by this collection. Besides providing many stimulating critical discussions, virtually every contribution in Textual Transformations is imaginative, highly informative, and well written. It is likely to inspire many a student of children's literature." - Larissa Rudova, Pomona College in The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms Introduction: Reconsidering Textual Transformations in Children’s Literature, Benjamin Lefebvre 1.

    Description: This essay brings to the forefront the work by Joy Kogawa that preceded and followed her watershed novel Obasan (1981), which privileges the perspective of a traumatized child to narrate the internment of Japanese Canadians during and after the Second World War. The objective of the essay is to address an overlooked pattern of repetition and revision that can be traced across these multiple texts--a sequel, Itsuka | Emily Kato; a revision for children, Naomi's Road; and a thematic follow-up, The Rain Ascends--all of which were revisited by Kogawa after their initial publication. Drawing on pivotal work on trauma and memory, the essay considers to what extent Kogawa's larger story of oppression, dispersal, and forgetting is unconcludable.

    Description: The range of motion achieved after a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) affects many daily activities and overall patients’ satisfaction. This study aims to define the determinants affecting post-operative midterm active flexion according to a specific cruciate-sacrificing prosthesis, the rotating concave–convex (ROCC®) TKA. Four hundred and eighty-four consecutive patients (584 TKAs) were prospectively followed. After baseline patient demographics and anatomical characteristics, clinical and radiological post-operative assessments were periodically recorded. The rotational alignment of the femoral component was additionally reported for 120 patients. Eligibility for final inclusion was a minimum of 5-year follow-up. Univariate analyses followed by a multivariate model were fitted to determine the independent predictors of midterm active knee flexion.Thirty-four TKA (5.8 %) were excluded for a secondary surgery before their 50 years, 69 patients died (11.8 %), and 21 (3.6 %) were lost to follow-up. Overall, 460 TKAs were included. The post-operative mean knee flexion angle was measured at 127.7° ± 9.3°. Significant factors affecting final flexion under univariate analyses were the patient height and body mass index, the absence of previous surgery, a depressive state, the preoperative flexion angle, a preoperative flexion contracture, a patellar residual subluxation, the reconstructed patellar height, and the rotation of the femoral component. The multivariate model confirmed the patient’s height, a depression, the preoperative flexion angle, a patellar residual subluxation, and the patellar height as statistically significant determinants.Aside from the preoperative flexion angle, numerous predictors of flexion, both patient- and procedure-related were identified. Surgeons should take these into account both when adequately informing their patient before surgery and when performing the arthroplasty itself.Prognostic, Level II.

    Description: [...]my response to pressures to conform more readily to most fashion trends is a paraphrase of past ESC readers' forums: "Why Do I Have to Dress Like That?" Conversely, when I think about trends and fashion within the discipline in a less literal way, my mind's eye is drawn to the possibilities of cutting-edge interdisciplinary research currently in vogue within English studies, a field that continues to widen the boundaries of what is worthy of academic study in order to include not just literature but life writing, video games, periodicals, mainstream television, archival and legal documents, online communities, and the cultural production and reception of virtually everything. [...]a job would ask for applicants with primary specialization in a traditional category-say, British literature of the long eighteenth century-and then offer a long list of eclectic topics as desirable secondary areas of specialization: everything from children's literature, narrative theory, creative writing, and cultural studies to African American women's writing, Medieval Studies, and the Judeo-Christian Bible. Here, then, is another quagmire: someone trained at, say, McMaster University's Department of English and Cultural Studies, as I did, may be at a disadvantage when applying to a job at, say, Wilfrid Laurier University's Department of English and Film Studies, given that Cultural Studies at Laurier is its own department and cross-appointments are not always possible for administrative or budgetary reasons. [...]someone trained at an institution with discipline-specific departments may not be seen as a right fit for a hiring committee looking for interdisciplinarity, and vice versa. Since English departments across Canada and beyond are broadening their mandate at different paces and in different directions, being the right fit for a particular job has become even more unpredictable.
