Increasing Positive Perceptions of Diversity for Religious Conservative Students  [PDF]
Alison Cook, Ronda Roberts Callister
Creative Education (CE) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2010.12014
Abstract: Evidence suggests that positive perceptions toward diversity enhance the potential group and organizational benefits resulting from diversity. Given the make-up of today’s organizations, encountering diversity has become the norm ra-ther than the exception. As such, it is becoming increasingly important to address diversity issues, and take steps to increase positive perceptions of diversity within the business classroom in order to carry that advantage into the workplace. Religious conservative students present a unique challenge to diversity education in that they likely hold value- laden attitudes that lack alignment with diversity principles. This study prescribes a scaffolding approach to increase positive perceptions of diversity within a classroom comprised predominantly of religious conservative students

Abstract: It is widely known that from the introduction of the Defence Amendment Act of 1967 (Act no. 85 of 1967) until the fall of apartheid in 1994, South Africa had a system of universal national service for white males, and that the men conscripted into the South African Defence Force (SADF) under this system were engaged in conflicts in Namibia, Angola, and later in the townships of South Africa itself. What is widely ignored however, both in academia and in wider society, is that the South African military relied on conscripts, selected through a ballot system, to fill its ranks for some fifteen years before the introduction of universal service. This article intends to redress this scholastic imbalance.
Crónica de la muerte de un rey
Javier Ronda
Revista Latina de Comunicación Social , 2000,
Abstract: La muerte del rey Hassán II de Marruecos en el verano de 1999 fue una de las noticias mundiales con una repercusión social y política sin precedentes en la crónica periodística internacional. El anuncio del fallecimiento del monarca marroquí se produjo el 23 de julio por la tarde cuando la Agencia Efe se adelantaba a contar la noticia en Espa a. La recepción de los canales de televisión y radio espa oles en el norte de Marruecos permitió a los marroquíes que viven en esta zona del país conocer la noticia antes que en el resto país magrebí.
A Hybrid Model for Making Online Assignments Effective In a Traditional Classroom
Ronda Sturgill
Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics , 2011,
Abstract: Today’s college student has grown up in a world filled with technology and many current college students routinely utilize the latest and most up to date forms of technology. The result is an ever-changing way of communicating between faculty members and students. Many faculty members, however, are intimidated by the use of the terms “technology”, “online” and “distance education.” This often results in a communication gap between faculty and students where faculty members will “lose” students on the first day of class. Advantages of incorporating online tools into the course structure include freeing up additional class time, enhancing classroom discussions, and allowing students to remain current with information in their field. This hybrid instructional model focuses on the integration of technology tools as a supplement to traditional classroom teaching. This paper will describe how to effectively incorporate and implement technology using online course tools in a traditional classroom setting. Specific examples of online assignments, discussions, and assessments from an allied health education program and class will be discussed. Lessons learned and challenges confronted when adapting to the utilization of specific online course assignments and tools will be discussed.
Dialéctica y contrapunto en Concierto barroco de Alejo Carpentier
Mc Callister,Rick;
Universitas Humanística , 2009,
Abstract: concerto barroco, like many of alejo carpentier's novels, is a historic testimony presented in the form of a spiral. the principle characters, filomeno and the master, appear in a musical progression from the pre-classical baroque age to the beginning of the seventies. filomeno's practical and popular wisdom and the master's confused identity produce an obvious resemblance to don quixote and sancho panza. although both witness the same events, their interpretations are completely different and colored by their social origins. in both novels, while the gaze of the noble protagonist is centered on the medieval past, his companion from the popular class shows him the right way, enabling him to find himself.
Neural Responses to Visual Food Cues According to Weight Status: A Systematic Review of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Studies
Kirrilly Pursey,Robert J. Callister
Frontiers in Nutrition , 2014, DOI: 10.3389/fnut.2014.00007
Abstract: Emerging evidence from recent neuroimaging studies suggests specific food related behaviours contribute to the development of obesity. The aim of this review was to report the neural responses to visual food cues, as assessed by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), in humans of differing weight status. Published studies to 2014 were retrieved and included if they: used visual food cues, studied humans >18 years old, reported weight status, and included fMRI outcomes. Sixty studies were identified that investigated the neural responses of healthy weight participants (n=26), healthy weight compared to obese participants (n=17), and weight loss interventions (n=12). High calorie food images were used in the majority of studies (n=36), however, image selection justification was only provided in 19 studies. Obese individuals had increased activation of reward-related brain areas including the insula and orbitofrontal cortex in response to visual food cues compared to healthy weight individuals, and this was particularly evident in response to energy dense cues. Additionally, obese individuals were more responsive to food images when satiated. Meta-analysis of changes in neural activation post- weight loss revealed small areas of convergence of activation across studies in brain areas related to emotion, memory and learning such as the cingulate gyrus, lentiform nucleus and precuneus. Differential activation patterns to visual food cues were observed between obese, healthy weight and weight loss populations. Future studies require standardisation of dietetic variables and fMRI outcomes to enable more direct comparisons between studies.
Going Mobile: the In’s and Out’s of an Academic Library Mobile Site
Ronda Holt,Mary Walker
Kansas Library Association College and University Libraries Section Proceedings , 2011, DOI: 10.4148/culs.v1i0.1359
Abstract: More people are joining the mobile society and libraries are beginning to provide on the go library service. There are several types of mobile devices including cell phones, smartphones, PDAs, the iPad, etc., and one-third of all Americans accessed the web using these devices in 2009. How can your library provide an access point for mobile research? The authors will tell you how two libraries have done this for their customers, how you can create a basic mobile site for your library, and how you can provide access to databases now offering mobile interfaces.
