Getting ready for Physics at the LHC with the CMS Detector  [PDF]
V. Drollinger
Physics , 2006,
Abstract: In order to get ready for physics at the LHC, the CMS experiment has to be set up for data taking. The data have to be well understood before new physics can be investigated. On the other hand, there are standard processes, well known from previous experiments and from simulation, which will help to understand the data of the detector in the early days of the LHC.

Abstract: The article investigates the role of electronic libraries (e-libraries) in education for people with disabilities. There is determined the problems of highlighted part of society and recommendations concerning use of e-libraries are submitted. Libraries' electronic resources are examined. It was emphasized that big and accessible national e-libraries creation will contribute to effective information usage and that would effect positively on level of science, technique and culture development as well as allow improving education system.. E-libraries give an opportunity to work with a present-day electronic education resources in a free access order. Much more people will be assisted in getting a higher education. It was defined that e-libraries in particular are the important resource for getting teaching and rare literature which is necessary for acquiring of any profession and also for getting higher education for people with disabilities.

Abstract: The purpose of the study was to establish whether secondary schools in Uganda are prepared for effective teaching of ICT education. The study was carried out in six secondary schools in Uganda. Both qualitative and quantitative research methods with a descriptive cross sectional survey design were adapted to collect data from 96 respondents. Questionnaires and interviews were employed as data collection instruments. The study findings showed that, the introduction of ICT education as a subject in the secondary school curriculum is a good government’s policy that will bring in every secondary school graduate to the use of internet, world of employment creativity, knowledge and use of internet and other related technologies for national development. The findings further revealed that success of the ICT education policy will depend on governments’ effort to recruit well qualified teachers in the subject, supply of enough computers, and construction of adequate computer laboratories and libraries in all secondary schools and availability of a reliable power supply in the country.

Abstract: Children from disadvantaged backgrounds tend to start school with fewer school readiness skills than their more advantaged peers. Emergent literacy and math skills play an important role in this gap. The family is essential in helping children build these skills, and the active involvement of families is crucial to the success of any intervention for young children. The Getting Ready for School (GRS) program is a parent-focused curriculum designed to help parents equip their children with the skills and enthusiasm necessary for learning when they start school. Parents meet in weekly workshops led by a trained facilitator and implement the curriculum at home with their children. The objective of this pilot study was to assess the promise of the GRS intervention in children participating in an urban Head Start program and to explore parents' responses to the intervention. We hypothesized that participation in GRS would improve school readiness in literacy and math skills, relative to participation in business-as-usual Head Start. Four Head Start classrooms (two randomly selected “intervention” and two “comparison” classrooms) participated in this study. Preliminary analyses suggest that GRS improves school readiness over and above a Head Start-as-usual experience. Implications for early childhood programs and policies are discussed. 1. Introduction School readiness, or the development of the cognitive, social, and emotional skills necessary for children to enter school ready to learn, creates the foundation for academic success, physical and mental health, and general well-being [1]. Unfortunately, socioeconomic disadvantage tends to lead to large gaps in the development of both the cognitive [2–5] and socioemotional skills [6–8] underlying school readiness [9, 10]. By the time children enter school, disadvantaged children tend to score between one-half and one-full standard deviation lower than other children on reading and math achievement tests [8]. Additionally, socioeconomic disadvantage is associated with problems in children’s self-regulation, including difficulties controlling impulses and regulating emotions [3, 4, 7, 8]. Disparities in cognitive and socioemotional development are not ameliorated during the early elementary years. Indeed, gaps in achievement tend to increase with age [10, 11], having vast implications for future life achievement [12–15]. Disadvantaged children of Latino descent are at particular risk for poor school readiness [16–18] and subsequent school failure [19]. Quality preschool programs can reduce the school-readiness
