Establishing Normative Values for the Barnett Balance Assessment-Sit (BBA-SIT)  [PDF]
Lela Rasegan, Holly Klein, Paige Bell, Brandon Bishop, Ellen Herlache-Pretzer
Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation (OJTR) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojtr.2018.62005
Abstract: The purpose of this descriptive study was to collect quantitative, normative data for the Barnett Balance Assessment-Sitting (BBA-SIT), a newly-developed dynamic sitting balance assessment tool based on the Barnett Balance Assessment (BBA). The BBA-SIT was administered to a total of 180 participants (30 people in each of the following age categories: 18 - 29, 30 - 39, 40 - 49, 50 - 59, 60 - 69, and 70+) who did not have any current balance deficits. A review of normative data collected indicated no variation in the total assessment scores within and between groups. Future research on the BBA-SIT is needed with balance-impaired populations to determine if the BBA-SIT is sensitive enough to identify subtle differences in dynamic sitting balance in individuals with various levels of balance impairment.
Mechanisms of Degranulation in Neutrophils

Abstract: Neutrophils are highly mobile and short-lived white blood cells that are densely packed with secretory granules. They derive from the bone marrow, where they mature in response to appropriate cytokines. Following this, they emigrate from the bone marrow into the blood and circulate to tissues. In healthy individuals, peripheral blood neutrophils make up the majority of white blood cells (40-80%). The lungs form the largest marginated pool of neutrophils in the body. In the airways, neutrophils fulfill an important sentinel role in maintaining sterility. As a major effector cell in innate immunity, neutrophils act as a double-edged sword. If neutrophils are absent (eg, in congenital neutropenia or the more common cyclic neutropenia), infections result from overgrowth of bacteria and fungi at sites of injury or exposed regions of mucosal tissues. At the other extreme, accumulation and overactivation of neutrophils can be fatal in disorders such as in septic shock or acute respiratory distress. The tissue-damaging effects of neutrophils are completely dependent on the activation of mediator release.Mediator release is defined as the secretion or production of proinflammatory substances that are derived from intracellular stored granules or synthesized de novo on stimulation by receptors. Neutrophils release granule-derived mediators by degranulation, or exocytosis, of membrane-bound secretory granules. The neutrophil also possesses the capacity to release a diverse array of antimicrobial proteins and enzymes intracellularly into membrane-bound organelles, called phagosomes, which contain engulfed small microorganisms. At the same time, neutrophils release reactive oxygen species and cytokines outside the cells to kill extracellular bacteria and recruit additional leukocytes to the region of infection or inflammation.Excessive neutrophil degranulation is a common feature of many inflammatory disorders, such as severe asphyxic episodes of asthma, acute lung injury, rheum
"Is it just so my right?" Women repossessing breastfeeding
Paige Smith
International Breastfeeding Journal , 2008, DOI: 10.1186/1746-4358-3-12
Abstract: Infant feeding occurs in the context of other continued gender inequities that include: lack of support by family, worksites and communities for breastfeeding; the sexualization and objectification of women's breasts; public aversion to the "maternal breast" which stigmatizes public breastfeeding and limits women's mobility in public spaces; lack of third party health insurance coverage for breastfeeding support; fragmentation of health care (obstetric care separate from pediatrics) and health care providers' failure to adequately inform women about the benefits of breastfeeding. All of these help create an environment that medicalizes and commercializes infant feeding while undermining women's capacity to breastfeed and alienating them from their maternal breast. These issues are visited even more heavily on low income and minority women as is demonstrated in shorter breastfeeding duration [1].Over the last couple of years, I have conducted interviews with women to identify the values that women bring to their decision-making about how to allocate their time, their money, their energy and their bodies in meeting their needs as individuals, workers and mothers; how women today manage their own efforts to achieve personal fulfillment and economic independence alongside their goals as mothers [2]; and then to use these women's experiences to develop a framework for feminist breastfeeding promotion. My purpose was not to assess the average or typical view of all women; rather I sought to interview women gathered around shared values, concerns or experiences. To date, I have sought out women gathered around the power of motherhood, breastfeeding advocacy and feminism.This paper draws from analysis of interviews conducted with women artists at the 2005 Mamapalooza music festival in New York City (power of motherhood; 12 participants, "Mamapalooza"), and conference participants at the 2005 La Leche League International and International Lactation Consultant Association Co

Abstract: This qualitative study explores the factors that contributed to limited interactional involvement in a telecollaborative project linking two groups of participants: 12 advanced-level students of English in northeastern Germany and 9 advanced-level students of German in the southwestern United States. Drawing on data from online transcripts, interviews, and questionnaires, I examine the tensions that arise when students' attempts at communicating online result in missed opportunities for engaging with their online partners. I report on the results of a discourse analysis of the online transcripts and rely on extensive interview and survey data to examine which factors made it difficult for students to maintain sustained interpersonal involvement in the online discourse. I document three main contextual tensions that arose from the different socially and culturally situated attitudes, beliefs, and expectations that informed students' communicative choices in the online discourse. I address the pedagogical implications of each of these three tensions. The findings suggest that research needs to focus not only on how students jointly construct online discourse, but how they co-construe the context for their participation. The paper concludes by addressing the implications of these findings for future research promoting language and culture learning online.
The Projective Envelope of a Cuspidal Representation of a Finite Linear Group
David Paige
Mathematics , 2012,
Abstract: Let $\ell$ be a prime and let $q$ be a prime power not divisible by $\ell$. Put $G=\mathrm{GL}_n(\mathrm{F}_q)$ and fix an irreducible cuspidal representation, $\bar{\pi}$, of $G$ over a sufficiently large finite field, $k$, of characteristic $\ell$ such that $\bar{\pi}$ is not supercuspidal. We compute the $\mathrm{W}(k)[G]$-endomorphism ring of the projective envelope of $\bar{\pi}$ under the assumption that $\ell>n$. Our computations provide evidence for a conjecture of Helm relating the Bernstein center to the deformation theory of Galois representations.
Model-Measurement Comparison of Ammonia Bi-Directional Air-Surface Exchange Fluxes over Agricultural Fields  [PDF]

Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2013.34048

Modeled and measured bi-directional fluxes (BDFs) of ammonia (NH3) were compared over fertilized soybean and corn canopies for three intensive sampling periods: the first, during the summer of 2002 in Warsaw, North Carolina (NC), USA; and the second and third during the summer of 2007 in Lillington, NC. For the first and the third experimental periods, the BDF model produced reasonable diurnal flux patterns. The model also produced correct flux directions (emission and dry deposition) and magnitudes under dry and wet canopy conditions and during day and nighttime for these two periods. However, the model fails to produce the observed very high upward fluxes from the second sampling period due to the fertilization application (and thus being much higher soil emission potentials in the field than the default model values), although this can be improved by adjusting model input of soil emission potentials. Model-measurement comparison results suggest that the model is likely capable for improving long-term or regional scale ammonia predictions if implemented in chemical transport models replace the traditional dry

“Wanted Dead or Alive”: The Female Outlaw and Callie Khouri’s Thelma and Louise
Linda Rohrer Paige
American Studies Journal , 2007,
Abstract: This essay analyzes Callie Khouri’s Thelma and Louise, drawing comparisons to the outlaw Belle Starr who had violated acceptable codes of behavior for late nineteenth-century American women. Employing the analysis of the "Bandit Queen” persona, Paige discusses which components of the outlaw figure are manipulated and which remain intact as the outlaw is made feminine and rejects not only conventional law but also the patriarchal conventions of womanhood, conventions established in the world these outlaws inhabit.

Abstract: If SUSY exists at the TeV scale, finding it at the LHC should be quite easy. The more difficult problem is to separate the various SUSY channels and to measure masses and other parameters. Substantial progress on this has been made within the ATLAS and CMS Collaborations.
