Perceived Versus Actual Risk for Hypertension and Diabetes in the African American Community
Hypertension and diabetes mellitus are leading health concerns in the United States. Despite a disproportionate burden of both conditions among African Americans, it is estimated that 44% of diabetes cases and one quarter of hypertension cases within this population are undiagnosed. Lack of awareness of the risk of these conditions may hinder preventive efforts and the adoption of positive lifestyle changes. Based on the findings from a pilot study to develop and standardize uniform screening fo

Mr Rudd has said that his Government's mandate is to bui
Scaling Galileo's Solar System - Locating the Globes
In this activity students plot the position of model planets on a campus map by converting from polar coordinates to Cartesian coordinates, after calculating the planet positions from scaled orbits and periods. They recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the fourth in a series of four on the Galilean Solar System, and was designed for an undergraduate class where students look at geological questions m
Navigating Global Economic and Financial Change
The global economy is experiencing a number of consequential transformations that impact long-standing economic and financial relationships. The resulting change goes well beyond the emergence of a new destination for the global economy; it is also reflected in what is an inevitably bumpy journey that is prone to a series of market accidents and policy mistakes. In his presentation, Mohamed A. El-Erian will discuss the nature of the transformations. He will detail the drivers, and illustrate how
Can International Law Change the World?
While each system of national law seeks to regulate affairs within only one society, international law concerns the entire world. Yet it has almost none of the methods of enforcement available to national legal systems. So, can it change the world? Christopher Greenwood was elected a judge at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in November 2008. He is an authority in international law who taught at LSE for 12 years, and was a practising barrister and has been a QC since 1999. He has appeare

The Business Plan Laboratory
The Business Plan Laboratory has been created for non-business students who are either competing in the Syracuse Business Plan Competition, or have an idea for a venture but do not know how to put together a professional business plan. It will meet one night per week during the Spring Semester. The Lab will have a very "hands-on" focus, where we work with student business concepts in discussing how to put together a great plan, including the mechanics of such challenges as defining a market and
Medical Product Quality Systems
Learn about the essential elements of Quality System Regulations (QSR's) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP's), how there is a commonality between them, and how to develop a global approach to Quality Systems in order to satisfy international requirements of ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 13485:2003. A detailed analysis of these systems and practical 'how to' recommendations and approaches are presented, with particular emphasis on the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) QSR's and GMP's.

How does the Moby-Go resources impact teaching and learning in the sample room?
The purpose of this research is to consider to what extent the moby-go could be used to enhance teaching and learning in the sample room studio. A qualitative study was carried out in which I focused on using the visualiser, the cam-corder and the laptop to ascertain to what extent these various pieces of equipment could be imbedded in teaching and their effects on the students, the technicians and the tutor. I have constantly sought to make the delivery of my lessons more creative, engaging

Renal, Fall 2007
The major objective of this sequence is for the students to obtain integrated information regarding the structure and function of the renal system, mainly the kidney, by attending lectures and participating in laboratory exercises. By the end of the sequence, we hope that the students will have acquired a working knowledge of: 1) how the various structural components in the kidney are specialized for processing the filtrate and producing urine, 2) what homeostatic mechanisms are involved in the
