The Transformation of Gender Identity for Women and Men in a University Classroom  [PDF]
Jerome Rabow, Gabrielle Serano, Sara Yazdanfar
Sociology Mind (SM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/sm.2017.72006
Abstract: This research paper examines the way in which a university classroom focuses upon patriarchy and sexism and the responses to these issues. The 110 students in this upper division class were encouraged to examine their beliefs and values in an environment where they could be challenged by readings, other students’ reactions and web posts. These web posts were anonymous so that students could feel safe and were classified in a six-stage identity scheme developed by Hoffman (1985). Their six-stage categories were modified by the authors of this paper and were used to describe the transformation of students’ identities from sexist to anti-sexist.
Structural and Electronic Properties of Impurities on Boron Nitride Nanotube  [PDF]
Gabrielle P. Soares, Silvete Guerini
Journal of Modern Physics (JMP) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/jmp.2011.28102
Abstract: The structural and electronic properties of molybdenum and magnesium substitution doping in (10,0) boron nitride nanotube (BNNT), are investigated through first-principle calculations. The electronic band structures results indicate that the molybdenum doped systems behave as n-type impurity. However, the magnesium doped systems behave as p-type impurity when magnesium replaces boron, and as a n-type impurity when the magnesium replaces nitrogen. The analysis of the energies formation shows that the molybdenum replacing a boron and nitrogen atoms are more favorable than the magnesium substitution in boron and nitrogen.
A comparison between reported and ideal patient-to-therapist ratios for stroke rehabilitation  [PDF]
Gabrielle McHugh, Ian D. Swain
Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.56A2016

Objective: Major improvement has been made in the medical management of stroke in the UK between 2008 and 2010 based on the indicators measured in the National Sentinel Audit. However based on the same audit, no corresponding improvement has been effected to patient functional impairment levels on hospital discharge in the corresponding time frame. This study derived patient-to-therapist ratios as a means of exploring the amount of rehabilitation time for stroke patients while in hospital care. Method: A purpose specific survey was developed for completion by stroke teams. From a contact list compiled primarily in collaboration with the 28 National Stroke Improvement Networks, the Nth name technique was used to target stroke teams in each geographical area covered by the 28 networks. Results: A total of 53 surveys were returned representing 20 of the 28 network areas providing 71% national coverage. Analysis conducted on 19 of the 37 inpatient hospital care units that were discrete units, had no missing data for staff numbers, unit bed numbers, number of stroke patients treated per annum, average unit length-of-stay, and unit occupancy rates. Staffing levels for some therapies were below the Department of Health staffing assumptions suggesting that stroke units are challenged to provide the recommended therapy time. Conclusions: Most stroke units surveyed are operating below the DH staffing assumption levels and are therefore challenged in providing the amount of therapy and patient time recommended in the National Institute of Clinical Excellence guidelines to facilitate optimal functional recovery for stroke patients.

The Morphosyntactic Interface of Determiner Phrases  [PDF]
Gabrielle Klassen, John W. Schwieter
Open Journal of Modern Linguistics (OJML) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojml.2013.34047
Abstract: The functional category of determiners has undergone a number of representational changes in the last half century. Beginning with Abney in 1987 and as early as work by Brame (1981, 1982) and Postal (1966), linguists began to adapt the notion that determiners were a type of functional category with phrasal structure, and not specifiers of noun phrases. The flexibility allotted to this category to hold a significant role in syntactic structure has led to theories of feature and feature strength and the development of these features in first and second language acquisition. This paper seeks to review the current theories of syntactic structure of determiner phrases in English and universally. In particular, it examines one area of controversy regarding this category, namely nominal gender agreement, and how this affects applied areas of linguistics. Recent studies seem to favor specific transfer theories, however the default hypothesis that arises leaves much to be considered. From the discussion, we argue that gender feature agreement in L1 and L2 acquisition is distinct and merits further investigation, perhaps benefiting from the recent developments in the area of psycholinguistics.
Desigualdades na divis?o do trabalho familiar, sentimento de justi?a e processos de compara??o social
Análise Psicológica , 2010,
Abstract: the studies conducted on family organization have shown that, in spite of the mass entry of women into the labour market, there have been only few changes in the way spouses divide the family work. as a result, unequal family practices are maintained in societies based on an egalitarian ethics without, paradoxically, producing a feeling of injustice. this observation has been at the origin of several attempts of explanation, one of those being that the comparisons made by women are selective and lead them to view the unequal division of family work as appropriate. the present paper questions this explanation and attempts to show that most comparisons between men and women lead to evaluate similar behaviours in a different way, because they are adjusted to the traditional gender roles and thus rest on double standards. it defends that using identical criteria for the judgments of men and women’s competences and roles is an indispensable condition to achieve more justice in our society.
Miseria y exclusión, dependencia y explotación: los yonquis de los a?os 2000
Leflaive, Gabrielle;
Cuicuilco , 2010,
Abstract: based on an ethnographic research carried out between 2000 and 2004 in the marginal shanty-town of "las barranquillas" (madrid) which constitutes spain's major drug scene where heroin and cocaine are sold and used, this article describes the drastic material and health conditions in which the junkies of the 2000's are living. it shows how the most harmful aspects of drug use are favored by the marginal context and the degradation in the shanty-town, by the harshness of the social relationships in which their economic dependence throws them, and by the tensions produced by a life style that tends to foster addiction, encouraging escalation and compulsive forms of use.
A belle époque das romancistas
Houbre, Gabrielle;
Revista Estudos Feministas , 2002, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-026X2002000200004
Abstract: the article deals with the growing presence of women novelists in late nineteenth and early twentieth century, a fact which changed the literary landscape of the belle époque in france. this change surprised and angered some men of letters, who reacted by criticizing such women, often stereotypically affirming the absence of creative power in their work. besides pointing out the visibility gained by these women writers, the author compares the way they presented female characters and the relations between the sexes to the manner in which the male novelists of the times built their narratives. in the belle époque, the growth of female readership brought about by increased literacy among women and by new educational opportunities, together with feminist activism, seems to have created an environment which allowed a large number of women to abandon old male pseudonyms and take up female pseudonyms or even to write under their own names.
Majority relation and median representative ordering
Gabrielle Demange
SERIEs , 2012, DOI: 10.1007/s13209-011-0052-9
Abstract: This paper presents results on the transitivity of the majority relation and the existence of a median representative ordering. Building on the notion of intermediate preferences indexed by a median graph, the analysis extends well-known results obtained when the underlying graph is a line. In contrast with other types of restrictions such as single-peakedness, intermediate preferences allow for a clear distinction between restrictions on the set of preferences characteristics and those on the set of alternatives.
