The Problem-Based Learning Directory
Searchable database of ways that different faculty at colleges and institutions worldwide are using problem-based learning. At the time this annotation was created the database contained information for 104 courses at 90 institutions across 29 countries. As such the site will be useful both to faculty interested in adapting and implementing problem-based learning exercises in their classrooms.

Le conflit des créateurs : fictions juridiques et réalités biologiques (video)

Science et droit doivent-ils agir de concert ? Les réalités biologiques sont-elles compatibles à un bon usage du droit ? La tension dialectique entre les sciences, plus particulièrement biologiques, et le droit, pose de réelles interrogations.

Pour apporter une réponse à ces questionnements, Jean Hauser revient sur les problèmes juridiques qu’ont posés dans les années 70 la nécessité de redéfinir la filiation ainsi que la question du transsexualisme. Il démontre, p

LSE Literary Festival - Dance, Text, and Translation: Creating a Dialogue
Dance is generally concerned with non-verbal bodily communication, while literature is text-based and disembodied. However, the long relationship between dance and text has been explored both through textual interfaces by collapsing the boundaries between different art forms such as physical theatre, dance and literature and within the world of text, these boundaries are negotiated through the body of literature written about dance.

‘‘It’s The Skin You’re In’’: African-American Women Talk About Their Experiences of Raci
Objectives: Stress due to experiences of racism could contribute to African-American women’s adverse birth outcomes, but systematic efforts to measure relevant experiences among childbearing women have been limited. We explored the racism experiences of childbearing African-American women to inform subsequent development of improved measures for birth outcomes research. Methods: Six focus groups were conducted with a total of 40 socioeconomically diverse African-American women of childbearing

Objectives. We examined the effects of self-reported experiences of racial discrimination on Black–White differences in preterm (less than 37 weeks gestation) and low-birthweight (less than 2500 g) deliveries. Methods. Using logistic regression models, we analyzed data on 352 births among women enrolled in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults Study. Results. Among Black women, 50% of those with preterm deliveries and 61% of those with low-birthweight infants reported having

The Persistence of American Indian Health Disparities
Disparities in health status between American Indians and other groups in the United States have persisted throughout the 500 years since Europeans arrived in the Americas. Colonists, traders, missionaries, soldiers, physicians, and government officials have struggled to explain these disparities, invoking a wide range of possible causes. American Indians joined these debates, often suggesting different explanations. Europeans and Americans also struggled to respond to the disparities, sometimes

Community Resilience as a Metaphor, Theory, Set of Capacities, and Strategy for Disaster Readiness
Communities have the potential to function effectively and adapt successfully in the aftermath of disasters. Drawing upon literatures in several disciplines, we present a theory of resilience that encompasses contemporary understandings of stress, adaptation, wellness, and resource dynamics. Community resilience is a process linking a network of adaptive capacities (resources with dynamic attributes) to adaptation after a disturbance or adversity. Community adaptation is manifest in population w

Reassessment of intra- and extra-ovarian expression of growth differentiation factor-9
Mammalian ovarian organogenesis is characterized temporally by oogonial mitosis, oogonial apoptosis, rescue of germ cells via interaction with somatic cells to form primordial follicles, and entrance into meiosis. Recent studies suggest that germ cell’s activity participate in this process via the production of local regulatory factors. Growth differentiation factor-9 (GDF-9), a novel transforming growth factor-family member, is expressed in ovaries of various species as a crucial factor in ov

Where is Mr. Clean? Household division of labor and the pay gap between men and women
The household division of labor and the pay gap between men and women is examined using the 2003 American Time Use Survey. There are three components to an income determination model: individual, structural and gender level components. The individual component argues that people are rational human beings who make conscious decisions on how to maximize their utility, with increased investments in human capital possibly leading to increases in income. The structural component views society as orga

Prediction of variation in dimensional tolerance due to sheet metal hydroforming using finite elemen
Hydroforming of aluminum sheets is very important in the aircraft industry, due to the advantages of less wrinkling and cost effectiveness. Numerous research has been conducted in this field, which deals with the development of methods and tools to control accuracy of the bend and prediction of the springback after the sheet metal has been formed. Rivets are the most commonly used fasteners to fit together the subassemblies of the aircraft. The holes for riveting are punched after any forming op

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 [1] including fuel system, lubrication system, ignition system, and anti-ice system

State of Emergency: The Way We Were, Britain 1970-1974
The beginning of the 1970s saw Britain tottering on the brink of an abyss. Yet this time of immense unrest was also one of astonishing creativity and innovation, which helped shape society as we know it today. For perhaps the last time in our history Britain experienced the shock of the new, from celebrity footballers and the pornography boom to high street curry houses and foreign holidays.
