A Wet/Dry Point Treatment Method of FVCOM, Part II: Application to the Okatee/Colleton River in South Carolina

Several hundred eddies around the barrier complex in the Colleton River could possibly raise the water exchange between the Okateeeee/Colleton River Estuary and the outer Broad River. According to a sensitivity report of flooding speed along the slope of the inter-tidal zone, the saltmarsh bathymetry significantly influences water elevations near low slack water but not in the maximum water coverage area at high slack water.

Spatio-temporal spread of COVID-19: Comparison of the inhomogeneous SEPIR model and data from South Carolina.

Authorities have been struggling to obtain reliable estimates for the disease's spreading dynamics during the COVID-19 pandemic events. For the spatio-homogenous propagation of the disease, we recently designed a multi-populations" model, which accounts for the spatio-homogeneous spread of the disease and shown, for a variety of aspects, how epidemic curves are highly dependent on epicenter location, non-uniform population density, and local restrictions. During the period May 22 to July 22, we validated our model against real-life data from South Carolina. Using data from NASA's Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center, we account for the non-uniform population density in South Carolina and estimate infection heat-maps' evolution during the study period. Moreover, Pearson's correlation coefficient is also high, thereby validating our model against real-world results. We conclude that the model accounts for the disease's spatial inhomogeneous dissemination of the disease in a geographically homogeneous manner.

Predicting Areas with High Concentration of the Long-Term Uninsured and Their Association with Emergency Department Usage by Uninsured Patients in South Carolina

In South Carolina, one of the long-term uninsured and Emergency Department use by uninsured patients is difficult. The restricted South Carolina Patient Encounter registry for patients with patientsu2019 billing zip codes differed from the restricted South Carolina citizen Encounter data with patients' restricted South Carolina demographic zip codes. If the LTU concentration was reduced to a lower level, a simulation was conducted to forecast changes in the ED visit numbers and rates by uninsured patients. Conclusions: Overall, there was a positive correlation between ED visit rates among the uninsured patients and areas with higher LTU concentrations. If the LTU concentration for each ZCTA was reduced to the lowest quintile, the uninsured's ED visit rates would decrease dramatically. Our simulation model predicted that if the LTU concentration for each ZCTA was reduced to the lowest quintile. Conclusions: The delivery of primary healthcare services to the LTU could help minimize inappropriate uses of ED resources and healthcare costs.

Urgent need to expand syringe services programs in South Carolina and beyond

During the 12-month period ending in April 2021, Abstract Opioid related overdose deaths in the United States increased by 28. 5 percent from the previous year. Syringe services programs have been shown to be a result-based harm reduction program that has been shown to be safe in reducing opioid overdose deaths and infectious diseases, as well as raising the rates of admission to recovery services. The operation of SSPs in SC faces several challenges in the absence of complete legalization.

“The Necessary Result of Piety”: Slavery and Religious Establishments in South Carolina Presbyterianism, 1800–1840

Historians have argued that disestablishment liberated American faith and allowed for the spread of religious belief and spirituality, particularly individualistic Evangelicalism in the South. Both antidemocratic political principles and chattel slavery were discussed by Protestant believers in South Carolina, particularly Presbyterians, who rejected individualized faith in favour of a unified faith that encouraged and nurtured activist state protection of both antidemocratic political principles and chattel slavery.

Healthy Eating Policy Improves Children’s Diet Quality in Early Care and Education in South Carolina

We analyzed diet in 112 children from 34 ECE centers in South Carolina and 90 children from 30 ECE centers in North Carolina using direct observation. Before and after the policy was introduced, we developed Healthy Eating Index-2015 to track diet intake before and after the policy was introduced. To estimate differences in HEI scores by state, from baseline to post-policy, including child birth, director education, center years in operation, and center profit status.

Influences of Native American land use on the Colonial Euro-American settlement of the South Carolina Piedmont.

In a South Carolina Piedmont setting, we test the possibility that prehistoric Native American land use influenced the Euro-American settlement process. Land use legacies, according to long-term ecological studies, influence processes and trajectories in turbulent, mixed socioeconomic, and ecological frameworks. Native American land use has changed the ecological and evolutionary feedback of many North American landscapes' terra traces and trajectories. We use statistical event analysis to determine the effect of prehistoric Native American settlement on the rate of Colonial land grants in the United States. We propose that prehistoric land use legacies functioned as the primary focal points in the Colonial era settlement process.

The South Carolina Digital Watershed: End-to-End Support for Real-Time Management of Water Resources

Both environmental and hydrological, ensuring that communities have sufficient access to wateru2014an essential component of community wellbeing and prosperityu2014requires finegrained governance guidelines based on real-time in situ data, both environmental and hydrological. We've created the South Carolina Digital Watershed, an end-to-end method for monitoring water sources to fulfill this state's request.

Temporal Trends in Cardiovascular Hospital Discharges Following a Mass Chlorine Exposure Event in Graniteville, South Carolina

Although chlorine gas mostly affects the respiratory tract, a growing body of evidence indicates that acute exposure may also result in cardiovascular injury and cardiac toxicity. paraphrasedoutput:Methods: The South Carolina Revenue and Fiscal Affairs Office collected de-identified hospitalization data for the years 2000 to 2014 in the years leading up to the case. To compare slopes for pre- and post-spill time periods, we used linear regression with autoregressive error correction. Results: A substantial rise in hypertension-related hospital discharge rates was recorded for the years following the Graniteville chlorine spill. Concurrent changes to CHD and AMI hospital discharge rates were in the opposite direction. Conclusions: An unusual rise in hypertension-related hospital discharge rates in the Graniteville area impacted by the chlorine leak contrasts with national and state-level averages. Future studies are needed to determine the etiology of the increase and whether people exposed to chlorine are at a greater risk of hypertension heart disease.
