Killexams : SCO ADMINISTRATORS Study Guide - BingNews Search results Killexams : SCO ADMINISTRATORS Study Guide - BingNews Killexams : Grocery shoppers like mix of self, manned checkout

With self-checkout (SCO) lanes becoming more prevalent at grocery and drug stores across the U.S., shopper intelligence leader Catalina has issued a study that shatters broad generalizations about shoppers not liking the SCO option overall and not using coupons when they do use it.

In looking at shopper profiles and their preferences in terms of using self-checkout or manual checkout lanes--or both--in grocery stores, Catalina offers retailers guidance on how best to optimize the shopper experience.

The Rise of Self-Checkout Lanes

The number of SCOs in the U.S. has increased 10% in the last five years, with Catalina estimating that they now account for nearly 40% of lanes in grocery chains in the U.S. — a number that continues to grow as retailers like Walmart, Kroger, and Dollar General test pilot stores that offer only SCOs, per CNN. As more retailers make these moves in the U.S. and around the globe, Catalina advises they consider insights from its Shopper Intelligence Platform, underscoring that most consumers want both manual and SCO options.

For this SCO study, Catalina segmented shopper IDs into three segments: SCO-only, manned checkout-only (MCO), and a hybrid of SCO and manned lanes. Their choice of which lane to use depends on their shopper profile and purchase occasion. Surprisingly, more consumers have shifted from SCO-only to manual-only lanes year over year, but those who use both consistently have the highest retention rates and best customer value.

How Lane Choice Links to Purchase Behavior

Catalina data shows that 39% of shoppers used both lane types in 2021, depending upon their shopping mission. 49% of shoppers preferred the personal attention offered in the manned-only lanes, while only 12% of shoppers were steadfast SCO-exclusive fans. Breaking down the behavior of the hybrid shopper, their transactions were split 50-50 between MCO and SCO, with MCO accounting for 68% of sales and SCO for 32%.

Among other insights uncovered in the study: SCO-only shoppers had smaller baskets and bought less than hybrid and MCO fans. Instead of grocery stores, SCO-only customers likely do pantry loading in other channels, such as mass retailers or online. Hybrid shoppers produced the highest customer value ($1,720) and made 36 shopping trips per year in 2021.

Catalina's analysis further shows MCO-only shoppers are primarily Baby Boomers and Silent Generation consumers with household incomes under $100K and a high school education. SCO-only shopping also attracts the Silent Generation, as well as 19 to 24-year-olds. Those who use both SCO and MCO lanes are a mix of different demographics and tend to have an annual household income topping $100K, which is higher than the other segments.

For each checkout segment, Catalina analyzed which shopper personalities and affinities rise to the top. For example, Natural Flavor Seekers and Tree Nut Avoiders use SCO lanes more than other segments while Caffeine Seekers and Partially Hydrogenated Oil Avoiders choose MCOs. Those that toggle between both options tend to be Ingredient Conscious Seekers.

"In our view, retailers should evolve to create a balance of self-checkout and manned lanes to accommodate more multi-dimensional shopper profiles, Boost customer experience, enable cost efficiencies and maximize sales for the long term," said Wesley Bean, U.S. Chief Retail Officer for Catalina. "Until recently, shopper profiles generally grouped consumers by demographics and where they are on the purchase funnel. Now, retailers can layer in check-out preferences and shopper affinities to create a more personalized shopping experience and reach individual shoppers with messages that matter."

Coupon use at SCO lanes

The Catalina study also bucks conventional industry presumptions that shoppers won't take the time to use coupons in SCO lanes by citing a pilot program it conducted with a regional grocery retailer that compared the six-month performance of SCO shoppers who received ads with SCO consumers who did not. Both companies then measured post-campaign redemption rates to the previous year by region and type of checkout lane. They were surprised to learn SCO lane shoppers who received coupons drove four times more sales growth than the SCO checkout lanes with suppressed incentives. When compared with the six-month pre-period, these coupons accounted for an 181% in sales growth versus the control group, which posted a 40% increase. Data analytics demonstrated the incentives attracted new shoppers, engaged lapsed buyers, and contributed to an increase in store visits. 

Planning Long-Term Automation Strategies.

Catalina rounded out its SCO study by offering advice to retailers planning their long-term automation strategy for checkout lanes. Suggestions include:

  • Think carefully about the balance of SCO and MCO lanes to maximize sales.
  • Use UPC-level data to better understand how lane choice links to purchase behavior.
  • Create multi-dimensional shopper profiles that include checkout preferences to entice new shoppers, woo lapsed buyers, and boost store visits.
  • Work with brands to personalize offers and finesse their marketing mix based on when and how they purchase their products in-store.

Killexams : Friendships Can Heal Campus Divisions, Study Finds, and Administrators Play a Big Role

Higher education institutions often pride themselves on their civic missions: fostering understanding across differences and inspiring graduates to create a more equitable society. Within the last couples years, though, campuses have become rife with divisions—political differences, violence impacting BIPOC students, and disparate opinions on addressing the Covid-19 pandemic. The question of how to bridge these divides is ever present.

The answer might lie in one philosopher’s assertion about relationships. As Aristotle said, friendship is essential to creating a just and democratic society.

Killexams : New study finds increased risk of diabetes after COVID illness

Over the course of the pandemic, scientists have learned that the coronavirus can lead to a wide range of ongoing health problems — including diabetes, according to a new study.

New research published in the journal BMC Medicine this month is shedding light on how COVID-19 can also put a person at greater risk of developing diabetes — both type 1 and type 2 — after an infection. The study is a meta-analysis, which means that it combined and analyzed data from other studies on the same topic.

Nine studies, which included nearly 40 million participants, were included in the analysis. Six of the studies were conducted in the United States, with another two in England and one in Germany. Seven of the studies included only adults, one included only adolescents and one had no age restrictions. Overall, more than 4 million of the participants had contracted COVID-19 and more than 34 million in the control group had not. Altogether, following a COVID-19 infection, the incidence of developing diabetes was roughly 15 out of 1,000 people in a given year.

“To our knowledge, this is the largest and most wide-ranging analysis of this kind to date,” the researchers noted in the study.

A consistent increased risk of diabetes after COVID-19 was observed across all age groups, and was highest in the first three months after an infection, according to the research. Patients with severe COVID-19 had a higher risk of diabetes after an infection, but even those with a mild COVID-19 infection were at increased risk, the study found.

According to the study, “similar results have been reported in patients infected with other viruses, with an increased incidence of diabetes, compared with those not infected.”

Diabetes, a chronic health condition that affects how the body turns food into energy, is the seventh most common cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There are three main types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes, which can occur during pregnancy.

According to the American Diabetes Association, in general, people with diabetes are at increased risk for developing more severe symptoms and complications when infected with any virus, including COVID-19. But the new research now highlights how important it is for doctors treating COVID-19 patients to monitor them closely for diabetes after their recovery.

“This reinforces the need for clinicians to pay attention to patients’ glucose metabolism in the post-acute phase of COVID-19,” the researchers said.

Killexams : Study shows the power of 'thank you' for couples

Gratitude has been a trendy sentiment in exact years—sparking an industry of journals, knickknacks and T-shirts touting thankfulness as a positive force in individuals' lives.

New research suggests that gratitude from one's partner may be a powerful tool for couples as well, increasing relationship satisfaction and commitment while protecting couples from the corrosive effects of ineffective arguing and financial stress.

Individuals who feel appreciated by their partners have better-functioning relationships that are more resilient to internal and external stressors, both in the moment when the appreciation is expressed and over the long-term, said researcher Allen W. Barton, a professor of human development and at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Over a 15-month period, Barton's team examined the effects that expressed gratitude—conveying appreciation to one's partner—and perceived gratitude—feeling valued and appreciated by one's partner—had on the relationships of 316 African-American couples.

"This study was really motivated to understand gratitude in relationships and if it can protect couples from challenges and hardships, be it negative communication or broader factors like financial strain," Barton said.

"Much of the prior research looked at the relational effects of expressing gratitude, but one could make the argument that feeling appreciated by one's partner is important, too. And we tested both to see whether one was more influential for couple relationships than the other," Barton said.

The majority of those in the study were middle-aged and lived in small communities in rural Georgia. While most of the participants were employed, about 65% of the couples had joint incomes that were less than 150% of the federal poverty level and could be classified as working poor, Barton said

The total number of children residing with the participants ranged from one to eight, averaging three. The had been together about 10 years while the had been cohabiting nearly seven years when the study began.

Published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships, the current study builds on a 2015 study Barton led that examined the effects of financial distress on marital quality. That study, published in the journal Personal Relationships, considered only perceived gratitude and included predominantly white, middle-aged and more highly educated couples.

"In the current study, we wanted to examine the effects of both perceived and expressed gratitude and whether perceived gratitude works similarly with a different demographic population," he said.

Over the 15-month period, the couples were surveyed three times about their arguing and conflict resolution, their expressions of gratitude to their partner and their levels of perceived gratitude from their partner. The participants also reported on their current levels of financial strain.

Respondents rated their satisfaction with their relationship, ranging from perfectly happy to very unhappy; the relationship's level of stability, as measured by thoughts or discussions about breaking up; and their confidence in their future together.

Respondents completed the surveys again eight and 15 months after the initial assessment so the team could measure the effects of both forms of gratitude over time.

"Our main hypothesis was that perceived gratitude from one's partner would have what we call stress-buffering effects—that it would protect couples from the declines in relationship quality that typically happen when you have negative communication or when you have higher levels of financial strain," Barton said. "Expressed gratitude really hadn't been looked at before, so we had no hypotheses with it—our work was more exploratory."

Individuals in the sample with higher levels of expressed and perceived gratitude were more satisfied with their relationship, the team found. These individuals had greater confidence in its future and reported less instability, such as discussions or thoughts about breaking up.

When the team looked at protective effects, they found that higher levels of perceived gratitude buffered against the stresses of both financial strain and ineffective arguing, and these "did not exhibit as strong of declines in or confidence, or the increases in instability that we typically see" with these types of stressors, Barton said.

"Even if the couple's negative communication increased—provided they still felt appreciated by their partner—their quality did not decline as much over time," he said. "That becomes really important because not every couple is going to be great at communication, particularly when things get heated or intense, or hit a home run with resolving conflicts."

The protective effect of perceived gratitude applied both in the moment—when the respondent felt appreciated by their partner—and across time, Barton said.

No protective effects were observed for high levels of expressed , however.

While there is no single surefire way of making one's partner feels appreciated, Barton suggested: "Be sure to make compliments that are sincere and genuine. And ask your partner if there are any areas in which they feel their efforts aren't being appreciated or acknowledged and start expressing appreciation for those."

Sutton; and graduate student Qiujie Gong, all of the U. of I.

Killexams : Nearly half of American adults experience sleep deprivation: study

Are you constantly struggling to get back on your sleep schedule during the work week just to be thrown off every weekend?

Well, you’re not alone. Nearly half of American adults experience something called “social jet lag” from sleep deprivation bouncing between work and weekend schedules.

Social jet lag is the inconsistency between a person’s body clock, which is determined by circadian rhythms, and their social clock, which is set by obligations such as work, school and social activities.

A study published on Tuesday in the journal JAMA Network Open is the first to separately analyze sleep patterns between workdays and non-work days. Researchers analyzed sleep data from over 9,000 Americans aged 20 years and older from 2017 to 2020 to find sleep habits and disturbances.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports every adult should be tucking themselves in for at least seven hours a night, but it appears that many Americans are not getting that — and even if they are, it’s not consistent.

Over 46% of participants of the JAMA study reported at least one hour of social jet lag, while 19.3% experienced at least two hours. Social jet lag is calculated by finding the difference between the midpoint between sleep and wake time on workdays and non-workdays.

“The timing of your sleep on workdays is the societal and work constraints, but the timing of your sleep on free days is what your body clock really wants you to do,” Dr. Elizabeth Klerman, a Harvard professor of neurology who was not associated with the study, told CNN.

The sleep deprivation caused by the misalignment of body and social clocks impacts everything from mental to physical health, which impedes your efficiency during workdays.

“It’s like you’re living in a state of jet lag during the workweek,” Dr. Klerman said.

Earlier research has shown that social jet lag has been associated with higher risks for depression, obesity, Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular problems prompting scientists to suggest additional studies be conducted.

Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of a good night’s rest, but it’s not just about hitting the sack. Almost 30% of respondents complained they had trouble falling or staying asleep and about 27% were very sleepy during the day.

To make up for that, one out of every three hybrid workers owned up to taking naps while working from home with 74% admitting they nap once a week if not more, a report from Harmony Healthcare IT found.

The majority (30%) of workers snuck away to doze off for 30 to 40 minutes, but a few (18%) were able to get away with snoozing for an hour or more.

While social jet lag can be an issue year round, the exact switch to daylight savings time can also affect it.

The Senate unanimously approved a bill in March to make daylight savings time permanent. But sleep experts say standard time is better for human circadian biology and they are urging lawmakers to ditch it for good.

Killexams : A study reveals one of the best foods to lose weight

According to a study from the University of South Australia, published in the scientific journal ‘European Journal of Nutrition’, a handful of almonds a day could not only help avoid gaining weight but aid in maintaining weight and also controling appetite.

The study revealed that people who ate almonds reduced their energy intake by 300 kilojoules at the next meal, a way to keep down food cravings so that you don’t come to your next meal uncontrollably hungry and eating the first thing you want.

  • Calories - 589 kcal
  • Fats - 53 grams
  • Saturated fatty acids - 4.5 grams
  • Carbohydrates - 5.7 grams
  • Proteins - 24 grams
  • Fiber - 11.4 grams
  • Minerals - 1.3 grams

Almonds against obesity

“Rates of overweight and obesity are a major public health concern and modulating appetite through better hormonal response may be key to promoting weight management,” said Sharayah Carter, MD, the leader of the study.

“We found that people who ate almonds experienced changes in their appetite-regulating hormones, and that these may have contributed to reduced food intake (by 300kJ),” said the researcher, a fact that is even more relevant, since worldwide there are 650 million people who are obese.

“Almonds are high in protein, fibre, and unsaturated fatty acids, which may contribute to their satiating properties and help explain why fewer kilojoules were consumed,” she remarked.

What the study says

The study found that people who ate almonds had 47% lower C-peptide responses, which may Boost insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

In addition, almonds provided higher response levels of glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (18% more), glucagon (39% more) and pancreatic polypeptide (44% more).

Precisely glucagon sends satiety signals to the brain, while pancreatic polypeptide slows digestion, which can reduce food intake, both of which promote weight loss.

The health authorities recommend consuming about 25 grams a day, more or less, a small handful, which is equivalent to about 147 calories.

Killexams : What The State Of Women's Study Says About An Impending Recession

There is no doubt that we are facing an economic downturn. And while it is impossible to predict the exact nature and extent of the recession, there are some things we can do to prepare ourselves financially. One of the most important things is to change our behavior with money.

Many of us spend recklessly when times are good and tighten our belts when times are tough. However, this cycle can exacerbate the effects of a recession. Instead, we should maintain a consistent level of spending throughout the ups and downs of the economy.

It is also helpful to focus on building up our savings. Saving money will provide us a cushion to fall back on if we experience job loss or other financial setbacks. And, if we can weather the storm without dipping into our savings, we will be in even better shape when the economy eventually recovers.

Taking these steps may not prevent a recession, but they can help us weather the storm and come out stronger on the other side.

Her Money and the Alliance for Lifetime Income's State of Women released the latest chapter of their State of Women 2022 study, which found that over two-thirds (68 percent) of women see a U.S. recession ahead. However, in these uncertain times, women are doubling down to secure their financial futures.

Key findings of the study

The study found that women are taking action to protect themselves financially. For example, women have said the top trade-off they are making now is limiting the purchase of luxury goods. Millennials are more likely to make tradeoffs and save their money.

“Women have told us time and time again that they prioritize saving and have peace of mind when they know they have enough protected income to last throughout retirement,” says Jean Statler, CEO of the Alliance for Lifetime Income.

What business owners need to know

First and foremost, it is important to remember that recessions don't happen overnight—they typically take months or even years to develop. So, while preparing for a potential downturn is essential, there's no need to panic.

There are steps you can take now to help weather a potential recession—just like your customers are doing on a personal level. For example, if revenue drops during tough economic times, you can create a cash reserve to tide your business over. You can also take steps to reduce costs, such as negotiating better rates with suppliers or trimming nonessential expenses from your budget.

Women across America are preparing for a recession by:

1. Saving money

It was found that 42 percent of women say they have more savings than they did last year. Women have started stockpiling supplies in case of emergency, and others say they are cooking more meals at home to save money.

2. Reducing expenses

Women have reduced spending on nonessentials like dining out, entertainment, and vacations. Many have increased their use of coupons, while others have been looking for better deals on everyday purchases.

3. Paying down debt

Women say they work hard to pay off debt like credit cards, student loans, and car payments. This includes women making extra monthly payments and others who have consolidated their debts into one lower-interest payment.

The bottom line is that the State of Women's study provides valuable insights into how women feel about the economy—and what they are doing to prepare for a potential recession. As a business owner, you should use this information to inform your decision-making and ensure that your business is positioned for success no matter what the future holds.

Killexams : Teens vaping within five minutes of waking up is on the rise: study

Wake up and smell the mango Juul pods.

Adolescents who use e-cigarettes within the first five minutes of their day jumped nearly 10% in exact years, a study found.

A study published on Monday in the JAMA Network Open medical journal looked at self-reported data from more than 151,000 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s surveys from middle and high schoolers across the country.

The amount of teens who reached for their e-cigarette within five minutes of waking up was less than 1% between 2014 and 2017, but rose to 10.3% from 2017 to 2021.

“This increase in intensity may reflect increasing use of nicotine for self-medication in response to increases in adolescent depression, anxiety, tic disorders, and suicidality that occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic,” the researchers suggested in the study.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, a myriad of mental health concerns among teens have skyrocketed to alarming heights, but the use of e-cigarettes to self-medicate creates a vicious cycle as nicotine use has been shown to negatively impact mental and physical health.

Unfortunately, the JAMA study also found that these e-smokers are starting younger, too. Research showed that e-cigarette smokers are getting younger by about 1.9 months per calendar year, with the current average age being 14.5 years old while the age of users first smoking other tobacco products remained stable.

Of those adolescents who currently use any type of tobacco product, the rate of those who reported using an e-cigarette and their first-ever tobacco product increased from 27.2% in 2014 to 78.3% in 2019, and remained at 77% in 2021, according to the data.

In 2020, the Food and Drug Administration placed a ban on flavored e-cigarette cartridges and this summer the agency ordered the popular Juul e-cigarette pulled from shelves. The company has since been ordered to pay $438.5 million to settle claims by 34 US states and territories that asserted it downplayed its products’ risks and targeted underage buyers, a move that many have linked to the e-cigarette epidemic.

The move came on the heels of a nationwide vaping crisis with the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey that finding that more than 5 million kids in middle and high school had used e-cigarettes in the last 30 days with at least 1 million of them having claimed to be daily users, the FDA said. 

“The United States has never seen an epidemic of substance use arise as quickly as our current epidemic of youth use of e-cigarettes,” the then-Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said at the time.

The researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital who conducted the exact study alerted that the increasing intensity and decreasing age of e-cigarette users calls for a clinical need to address youth nicotine addiction.

“The pandemic has also been a lost year for school-based prevention and treatment efforts, meaning that abatement plans will need to be intensified to address the nicotine addiction in those adolescents who missed a year of contact with adults who might have otherwise helped them get treatment,” the study claimed.
