Readings in the History of Aesthetics
Anyone with connection to the Internet has access to a vast number of philosophical documents via online etexts. Fortunately, quite a bit of the best work in philosophy is in the public domain, and a few of these readings provide a convenient access for almost anyone seeking information and help in the history of aesthetics. However, many of the historically significant writings in aesthetics are not presently available on the Internet, and this open source text helps somewhat to remedy that nee
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.
Patient Race/Ethnicity and Quality of Patient–Physician Communication During Medical Visits
Objectives. We examined the association between patient race/ethnicity and patient–physician communication during medical visits. Methods. We used audiotape and questionnaire data collected in 1998 and 2002 to determine whether the quality of medical-visit communication differs among African American versus White patients. We analyzed data from 458 African American and White patients who visited 61 physicians in the Baltimore, Md–Washington, DC–Northern Virginia metropolitan area. Outcome
The Redistricting Game is designed to educate, engage and empower citizens around the issue of political redistricting. Currently, the political system in most states allows the state legislators themselves to draw the lines. This system is subject to a wide range of abuses and manipulations that encourage incumbents to draw districts which protect their seats rather than risk an open contest. By explore how the system works, as well as how open it is to abuse, The Redistricting Game allows play

Characterization of adhesives at room and elevated temperatures
Recent interest in advanced materials has paved the way for exploring joining options besides the traditional mechanical or thermal methods such as riveting or welding. Because of the availability of highly advanced materials, mass production rates and demands for more aesthetic products, adhesive bonding is being used in more applications. Today, interstate signs, semi-trailer panels, aircraft structures, and many other commonly used products are adhesively bonded. Some of the common misconcept

Enhancing early literacy skills of pre-kindergarteners with histories of expressive phonological imp
Seven boys who had received intervention for highly unintelligible speech were tested for metaphonological awareness skills and alphabetic knowledge at the beginning of the summer prior to their entering kindergarten. Five of these boys participated in 12 small-group [2-hour] sessions that incorporated lessons from a comprehensive multisensory early literacy program. Two of the seven boys were not able to participate in the sessions because of summer activity conflicts. Post-treatment scores wer

Time division duplex-wideband code division multiplex (TDD-WCDMA)
Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) has been used in cellular communications area, e.g., in the second generation mobile phones since early 1990’s. Wideband CDMA (WCDMA) is a newer and faster radio technology used in the third generation mobile phones. A Frequency Division Duplexing WCDMA (FDD-WCDMA) has already been employed. In the FDD mode WCDMA, the system uses different frequency bands for the Uplink and Downlink communications. In the Time Division Duplexing WCDMA (TDD-WCDMA) mode, the
Singapore airlines: a study in exemplary crisis communication
On October 31, 2000, Singapore Airlines’ Flight SQ0006 crashed into construction equipment 11 seconds after take off and exploded into three pieces. The flight was bound for Los Angeles from Taipei’s Chiang Kai-Shek Airport. There were 159 passengers and 20 crew members on board the flight. The accidents caused 83 fatalities; there were 56 people injured and 40 people escaped unscathed. As it taxied down a closed runway, the aircraft hit a piece of construction equipment and exploded. This t
Chicano y Chicana: income differences among the largest U. S. Hispanic population
This study focuses on the wage gap between Mexican American men and Mexican American women, and factors contributing to this disparity. People of Mexican descent make up 67% of the U.S. Hispanic population. Previous research tends to lump Hispanics together, masking differences between groups. Even more, studies considering Hispanic subgroups rarely examine gender differences on income. Using secondary data analysis of the March 2005 Current Population Survey Annual Social and Economic Supplemen
Bored to death: William Inge’s women and The feminine mystique
Ever since Robert Brustein’s review of The Dark at the Top of the Stairs in November 1958, the role of the female characters in William Inge’s plays has been of interest to a number of critics. At that time, Brustein claimed that Inge’s female characters were "men-taming women" who were castrative to their husbands. After the publication of his review, many critics followed in suit and also described Inge’s women in the same terms; however, only one of these critics, Janet Juhnke, examin
