Encylcopedia of Laser Physics and Technology
This is a comprehensive encyclopedia that provides a brief definition or explanation of a keyword term or principle of laser physics and technology. The site is organized so that one can click on an alphabet letter to get a listing of keywords or terms for searching. This site will be useful for novices in the field and anyone who needs a refresher or reminder of terms and definitions.

The Subaltern Learns to Speak: African Voice and the Haitian Revolution in The Kingdom of this World
The subaltern may not be able to speak in a world inundated by Western philosophy, thought, and political organization, but in The Kingdom of This World, Alejo Carpentier offers the possibility of unlearning the language of the hegemony. In this novel, African voice solidifies African resistance in Haiti, and that voice is symbolized through the novel's agnus dei, Ti Noel. This African slave's first words are a daring question that begins to highlight his potential for rebelli
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This challenge asks students to determine possible ways for combining stamps costing 15 and 33 cents to total 1 dollar 77 cents. It notes that this type of problem is similar to a process used for creating security codes. This online student activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 mathematical challenges. Students are encouraged to make a chart as they explore possible number combinations. The answer page describes and illustrates four different approaches to finding the solution,
Healthy People 2010 disease prevalence in the Marshfield Clinic Personalized Medicine Research Proje
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to estimate the prevalence of Healthy People 2010 disease conditions in a large population-based cohort in central Wisconsin (WI, USA) and to consider how these conditions can be prioritized for research based on the use of healthcare services, the prevalence of various disease states and the resulting study power. Methods: Healthy People 2010 diagnoses were estimated for participants in the Personalized Medicine Research Project (PMRP), a large popula
Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well
Most classroom teachers work hard planning lessons, choosing materials, teaching classes, working with individual students, and assessing student progress. Yet some schools and teachers seem to be more successful than others. What makes the difference? This booklet is designed for middle and high school teachers and administrators who wish to improve their English programs. Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well draw upon a series of research reports and c

Morphological variation of the proximal femur in selected skeletal remains
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the structural variation of the proximal femur in human skeletal samples. The goal was to investigate and further describe the morphology of the proximal femur through quantitative observation. Subsets of measurements were used to calculate platymeric indices, which demonstrate the presence or absence of platymeria in a population. Metric analyses of the femur were also used to study size and shape differences in populations for indications of sexual dimo
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

The effects of phonotactic and orthotactic probabilities on orthographic fast-mapping in kindergarte
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the linguistic components of phonotactic and orthotactic probability affected children’s ability to fast-map orthographic information and whether orthographic processing explained unique variance on children’s literacy skills above and beyond that of phonological processing. Moreover, the current study examined whether kindergarten children with and without typical language abilities were differentially affected by linguistic processes on read

Space between words
After spending such a considerable time working with narratives and type I came across this process of cutting out type to create different depths of field. The columns of a newspaper were it's original inspiration. Obviously, now though, this piece is no longer about the actual words. Instead I was implying that the space between words is where our thoughts take shape.
