Gender, sexual orientation and victim blame regarding male victims of sexual assault
Although research has found that between 5% to 20% of adult men in non-institutionalized and non-military populations have been the victimes of a sexual assault, these victims are largely ignored by society and mental health professionals. Factos that may account for this lack of attention may be due to the small number of victims (as compared to female victims) and rape myths that promote the denial that male rape can occur. The psychological literature also reflects this neglect as the majorit

Collaborative Consultation and Larger Systems, Fall 2007
How do individuals and families interface with larger systems, and how do therapists intervene collaboratively? How do larger systems structure the lives of individuals and families? Relationally-trained practitioners are attempting to answer these questions through collaborative and interdisciplinary, team-focused projects in mental health, education, the law, and business, among other fields. Similarly, scholars and researchers are developing specific culturally responsive models: outreach fam
Object of History
The Object of History is a cooperative project between the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media. The project was conceived of in an effort to find a low cost way for students and teacher of U.S. History to have access to the museum’s collections and the expertise of the curators. As a result the materials on the site are designed to improve students’ content knowledge of standard topics in U.S. History and to imp
Step by Step Krebs cycle
These pages show the steps of the metabolic pathway called the Tricarboxylic Acid (TCA) cycle. Otherwise known as the citric acid cycle and the Krebs cycle. Data sheets, reaction diagrams and animations are provided for each step. Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle or tricarboxylic acid cycle,occurs in mitochondria, is the common pathway to completely oxidize fuel molecules which mostly is acetyl CoA ,the product from the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate. It enters the cycle and passes
The monosaccharide browser allows you to view space filling Fischer projections of monosaccharides. You can edit the structure and discover the correct name or you can select names from the classified index to discover the structure. The structure can be edited by choosing between aldose/ketose, number of carbon atoms between 3 and 6 and by clicking on carbon atoms to alter chirality. The Monosaccharide Browser can be used as a study aid in various ways. •Make a random monosaccharide by clic

How language works - The cognitive science of linguistics
Students studying linguistics and other language sciences for the first time often have misconceptions about what they are about and what they can offer them. They may think that linguists are authorities on what is correct and what is incorrect in a given language. But linguistics is the science of language; it treats language and the ways people use it as phenomena to be studied much as a geologist treats the earth. Linguists want to figure out how language works. They are no more in the busin

LSE Literary Festival - How to write a novel- an introduction for beginners with Justine Mann
Does the task of writing a novel both excite and daunt you? Using the political novel as an example, this workshop will examine how to progress from initial ideas to a successful draft. Participants should emerge with an understanding of the task that lies ahead and a greater sense of what is required in terms of structure, characterisation and plot.

Roll-bonded aluminium alloy diffusion couple annealed for 30 minutes at 600°C.
This micrograph shows the grain structure of a roll-bonded aluminium alloy diffusion couple annealed for 30 minutes at 600°C. The upper half of the couple is Al-0.5Fe-1.0Mn (wt.%), the lower half is Al-1.0Si (wt.%). Annealing has recrystallised the microstructure. The Al-Fe-Mn alloy has many intermetallic particles (the dark phase). These help create recrystallisation nuclei, hence this alloy has a high density of small grains relative to the Al-Si alloy.The Barker's etch produces a thick oxide
