Self-Reported Experiences of Racial Discrimination and Black–White Differences in Preterm and Low-
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
Poverty and Elimination of Urban Health Disparities Challenge and Opportunity
The aim of this article is to examine the intersection of race and poverty, two critical factors fueling persistent racial and ethnic health disparities among urban populations. From the morass of social determinants that shape the health of racial and ethnic communities in our urban centers, we will offer promising practices and potential solutions to eliminating racial and ethnic health disparities.
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
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
Lecture 17 - 11/23/2010
Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total contact hours). Fundamental principles in the design and analysis of engineering experiments: randomized blocks, latin squares, split plots, factorial experiments; fractional factorials; confounding and response surface methodology. This course is primarily designed for majors in Industrial Engineering (IE); however, it is appropriate for science and engineering students with background in statistics and interest in the character

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009/2010 This module consists of a detailed examination of the critical period in Japanese history from the end of the Pacific War through the U.S. Occupation between 1945 and 1952 and recovery in the 1960s and beyond. The lectures and seminars examine the following topics: Japan’s Road to War The Japanese experience of war and defeat The A-bomb in history and memory The ‘Allied’
The action maze has been designed to support a Level 2 Family Law course. It simulates the interactions between a trainee solicitor and a client experiencing marital difficulties. The maze presents a series of brief scenarios, and there is then a choice of courses of action with each of these. Depending on which option is selected, different subsequent scenarios are encountered. Thus there are several different storylines contained within the maze, and the student experience is determined by th

Operating principle, models and applications of basic semiconductors electronic components (diodes, bipolar transistors and field effect transistors), including the bias circuits. In addition, the concepts related to electronic analog amplification stages (small signal gain, input and output impedances and frequency response). Finally, the characteristics of operational amplifiers (OA) as analog integrated circuits and some of the most important AO applications.
The International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB MYP) is a highly competitive and rigorous review process of a middle school curriculum that, if successful, results in the school’s acceptance in an international form of accreditation. The purpose of this qualitative case study was to explore the factors influencing teachers’ motivation and their perceptions towards change in initiating and implementing a new program called the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB
