Lift Every Voice and Sing: A Gospel Choir Participation Experience and the Persistence of African Am
The majority of our nation‟s academic institutions fall short in their efforts to ensure that African American students successfully persist from admission to graduation. Since the majority of African American students attend Predominately White Institutions (PWIs), these institutions must be held to the highest standard of accountability for African American student retention. Therefore, PWIs must explore alternative retention mechanisms that will increase the African American student‟s int

Possible Predictive Factors for the Greater Johnstown School District’s Pennsylvania System of Sc
Relative to Curriculum-Based Assessment (CBA) and the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA), this study sought to determine whether a school district’s CBA reading scores were predictors for the PSSA reading scores for a grade-level cohort of students. Those CBA reading scores were collected in fourth through seventh grades; while the PSSA measure was a scaled score earned on the eighth grade reading measure. The sample included 268 eighth grade students who were roughly 48% male,

Critique of Postmodern Ethics of Alterity versus Embodied (Muslim) Others: Incompatibility, Diversio
In this dissertation, I investigated postmodern alterity, constructivism, and agency through addressing their translatability and implications. In Chapter One, I critiqued postmodern main concepts of alterity and constructivism, showing that these terms can be vague and counterproductive unless they are attenuated with political socio-cultural realities. In Chapter Two, through analyzing modern texts, I explored claims that Western epistemology/ontology reduces the other to the Same. Although su

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

Novel inhibitors of human leukocyte proteinase 3
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a multifactorial disorder that is associated with an influx of macrophages, neutrophils and T-lymphocytes to the lungs and the extracellular release of several proteases, including serine (proteinase 3, elastase, cathepsin G), cysteine (cathepsin S) and metallo- (macrophage metalloelastase, MMP-12) proteases, leading to a protease/antiprotease imbalance. The pathogenesis of COPD arises from an imbalance between the levels of proteases and their end

Assessing the validity and reliability of a Piagetian-based paper pencil test
Piaget hypothesized that we understand the world through the use of cognitive frameworks. The strengths and limitations of these cognitive frameworks (or levels) both help and hinder the learning process. Comprehending individuals’ cognitive levels is essential for teachers to ensure that their students learn. Piaget developed a series of tasks to assess individuals’ cognitive levels (typically called "clinical interviews" which can only be conducted in a one-to-one fashion). Thus, a paper-a

The effects of higher-level questioning in a high school mathematics classroom
The purpose of this study was to address questioning and higher-level thinking in a low level high school mathematics class. Students in this study included twenty-two high school freshmen (experimental group) and twenty-three high school freshmen (control group) who were enrolled in Algebra 1. This study included a pretest that both groups took to determine their cognitive level or thinking prior to new information and modifications in teaching. The experimental group received modifications tha

Protective bollard design for high speed impact energy absorption
As is passenger safety of paramount importance to the manufacturer of passenger vehicles, so is the security of the nation to its government. Recent developments in the usage of heavy vehicles by militant outfits to carry out attack has become the main concern of many governments around the world, hence the existence of some kind of barrier to stop heavy vehicles from entering restricted areas was thought of. This barrier must be able to provide both visibility and security without being much ex

Prediction of variation in dimensional tolerance due to sheet metal hydroforming using finite elemen
Hydroforming of aluminum sheets is very important in the aircraft industry, due to the advantages of less wrinkling and cost effectiveness. Numerous research has been conducted in this field, which deals with the development of methods and tools to control accuracy of the bend and prediction of the springback after the sheet metal has been formed. Rivets are the most commonly used fasteners to fit together the subassemblies of the aircraft. The holes for riveting are punched after any forming op

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 [1] including fuel system, lubrication system, ignition system, and anti-ice system

Building a testbed for mini quadrotor unmanned aerial vehicle with protective shroud
Potential applications of small rotorcraft unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) range from military missions to exploration of the planet Mars (Patrick C. O’Brien, 2003). Tasks such as exploration of unknown territories, formation flying, intelligence gathering etc, require UAV to be capable of flying very close to other flying or steady objects. Exposed rotary wings limit rotorcraft vehicle’s capability to fly in proximity of other objects. In some applications, such as rescue operation, urban w

Contrairement aux ambitions affichées aux origines de la discipline, en 1956, les recherches en intelligence artificielle ont à ce jour largement échoué à reproduire l'intelligence de l'homme, même si un programme d'ordinateur a réussi à battre le champion du monde aux échecs. Quant aux robots modernes, ils ne brillent pas non plus par leur intelligence, même si certaines machines caniformes ou humanoïdes sont de véritables merveilles de technologie.
