Positive of the collodion wet-plate negative portrait of Abraham Lincoln. This is one of the rare photographs of Lincoln looking directly at the viewer. It shows a haggard president with heavy lines on his face. His "lazy" left eye is noticeable.,This positive image was made from the original Alexander Gardner negative by Indiana Historical Society photographer David Turk. He made the print from a duplicate negative (a negative of a transparency output from a digital scan of the original negativ
HEALTHY INDIANA – A MINORITY HEALTH PLAN FOR THE STATE OF INDIANA
We are proud to present the Healthy Indiana - Minority Health Plan for the State of Indiana. This is another significant step forward in addressing the health disparities of minorities in our state. In March 2002, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released a report with startling revelations about health care delivery for minorities. The report was titled "Unequal Treatment: What Healthcare Providers Need to Know About Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Healthcare." Not surprisingly, the IOM found t
Canary in a Coal Mine (MWV16)
Coral reefs are dying a death of a thousand cuts and their disappearance threatens not only the incredibly diverse ecosystem that depends on them, but also human health and welfare. In this episode of MicrobeWorld Video marine scientists Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Ph.D., chair of marine studies at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and Kiho Kim, Ph.D., director of the environmental studies program at American University, explain the important relationship between microbes and corals,
Carbon on the Move
Through a reading, demonstration stations, and completion of a puzzle, students will recognize how respiration and photosynthesis move carbon through the earth system, how fossil fuels were formed, and how human activities have altered this movement on a global scale.
Can Gases Act as a Greenhouse?
In this lab, students will infer a potential for increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leading to global warming by contrasting the temperature rise in a CO2 rich atmosphere to that of normal air when both environments are exposed to a bright light in a controlled experiment.

Bruno has been National Assembly deputy for Eure since 2007, and is a member of the National Assembly Finance Committee. He is also the Finance Committee special rapporteur on health security an
Evaluation of springback prediction capability using uniform pure bending
The aim of this study is to develop uniform pure bending as an objective test for determining the accuracy of springback prediction by employing different FEA techniques. A complete theoretical solution for the bending moment and change in sheet thickness is available only for uniform pure bending of perfectly plastic sheets. However, plastic hinging develops naturally in simulations of bending perfectly plastic sheets. We have developed a method to prevent plastic hinging and achieve uniform pu
A Debate about the Definition of 'Britishness'
As the composition of British society transforms with immigration and transnational identities, ideas about the notion of 'Britishness' are changing too. In the interest of a cohesive citizenry, must the UK return to 'core British values'? Or should Britain's identity change with its population? Should a British identity even exist? Sir Bernard Crick is emeritus professor of Birkbeck College and author of Life in the United Kingdom: A Journey to Citizenship, the basis for the UK citizenship exam
Evaluating cardiac gene expression in maternal phenylketonuria offspring
Maternal phenylketonuria (MPKU) is a teratogenic syndrome, caused by development of offspring in a uterine environment made toxic by the metabolic imbalance of PKU. The birth defects resulting from untreated MPKU include microcephaly with concomitant mental retardation, growth retardation, and congenital heart defects. Congenital heart defects have been identified and characterized in MPKU offspring, using the BTBR-PAHenu2 mouse MPKU model. Subsequently, this mouse model was used to start invest
Lunch Poems: Will Alexander
Will Alexander has created a contemporary alchemy of surrealist vision in his own electric incandescent language. Coined the Césaire of America, his poetry is full of imagistic and intelligent unraveling. Charles Bernstein calls his latest collection, Exobiology as Goddess, "an exuberant excursion into the hyperreality of the cosmos." A poet, novelist, essayist, and educator, Alexander lives in Los Angeles.
"That the union of the labor forces shall be permanent"
Historians disagree on the reasons the Populist Movement and labor failed to achieve a political coalition. Some find the cause in a backward-looking Populist ideology that imagined solutions to the problems of rapid industrialization could be found in a yeoman republic. According to this view, rank-and-file Populists neither understood nor had sympathy with the problems facing workers in the mass industries of the late twentieth century. Others see Populism as a progressive movement that accept
Novel inhibitors of human leukocyte proteinase 3
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a multifactorial disorder that is associated with an influx of macrophages, neutrophils and T-lymphocytes to the lungs and the extracellular release of several proteases, including serine (proteinase 3, elastase, cathepsin G), cysteine (cathepsin S) and metallo- (macrophage metalloelastase, MMP-12) proteases, leading to a protease/antiprotease imbalance. The pathogenesis of COPD arises from an imbalance between the levels of proteases and their end
Analysis of honeycomb core properties under different parametric conditions for the head injury crit
There has been enormous boom in the air travel in recent times. There is increasing demand for the technological advancement nowadays towards the safety of the onboard passengers. Certification of aircrafts requires engineers to demonstrate that a head contact with any aircraft interior complies with the Head injury criteria (HIC) threshold of 1000 units specified in 14CFR 23.562, 25.562, 27.562. Analyzing injuries to the head of the occupant when it comes to contact with any aircraft cabin inte
Prediction of crack growth in aircraft engine bleed air ducts using finite element and crack growth
The bleed air system in an aircraft engine is one of the most important systems for flight operation and is the heart of the aircraft engine pneumatic system. It consists of ducts and components that supply high pressure bleed air from the engine compressor to the other systems. The functioning of bleed air system plays a vital role in flight safety, ground operations, and coordination with other existing systems  including fuel system, lubrication system, ignition system, and anti-ice system
Expressing ethnicity: a Vietnamese community in Kansas
This paper attempted to establish the usefulness of the sociologist Joane Nagel’s approach to the study of ethnicity within the discipline of anthropology. While others within the field of anthropology have acknowledged Nagel’s view, its application has been few. By reviewing the primordialist and circumstantialist debate over ethnicity within anthropology, the foundation will be laid to access the applicability of Nagel’s approach for resolving issues about ethnicity that still remain yea
