On the Impermissibility of Telling Misleading Truths in Kantian Ethics  [PDF]
Cameron Shelley
Open Journal of Philosophy (OJPP) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojpp.2012.22013
Abstract: Sandel (2009) has recently revisited the issue of the moral permissibility of telling misleading truths in a Kantian ethical framework. His defense of its permissibility relies on assimilating it to simple truth telling, and discounting its relationship with simple lying. This article presents a refutation of Sandel’s case. It is argued that comparison of misleading truths with telling truths or lies is inconclusive. Instead, comparison with telling of leading truths is appropriate. With this comparison in view, it is clear that telling misleading truths is not consistent with the Categorical Imperative, meaning that they are not morally permissible from a Kantian perspective.
Visual, Auditory and Cross Modal Lexical Decision: A Comparison between Dyslexic and Typical Readers  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.516191
Abstract: This study examined the differences in processing between typical and dyslexic readers in a lexical decision task in different modalities (visual, auditory, and cross modality). In general, dyslexics exhibited slower reaction times and made more mistakes when performing the task. The biggest gap between the two groups of readers was found on the visual task. However, the dyslexics benefited from the cross modality presentation, with differences between the two groups minimized. The results of this study indicate that the slowness characteristic of dyslexics’ stems mainly from slow processing of visual linguistic information and that supporting both processing systems relevant to reading will assist inter-sensory integration and may ease the word decoding process among dyslexics.
The Impact of Atmospheric Phenomena on South Korean Students’ Engagement at School through the Mediating Effect of the Students’ Health  [PDF]
Shelley Choi
Atmospheric and Climate Sciences (ACS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/acs.2018.83020
Abstract: This study examined how South Korea’s regular significant atmospheric phenomena, the yellow dust and the monsoon, affected students’ health and academic engagement at school. Five hundred middle and high school students were surveyed to figure out the atmospheric impacts on the students’ lives. The results of this study found that the severity of yellow dust and monsoon conditions experienced by the students negatively influenced their academic engagement. However, the variable of students’ concerns about their health was shown to have a mediating effect between the intensity of yellow dust and the level of academic engagement. These results indicated the need to alleviate the yellow dust and monsoon atmospheric phenomena and their effects at both the school and national levels in order to improve the academic engagement of students in South Korea.
“Smart” Surveillance of Dusty Behavior: Illuminating the Relationship between Particulate Matter and the Atmosphere  [PDF]
Shelley Choi
Computational Water, Energy, and Environmental Engineering (CWEEE) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/cweee.2018.73008
Abstract: Although large amounts of research have been completed to find the relationship between particulate matter and climate change, they have still proven to be inadequate. Efforts to lay the foundations for understanding atmospheric chemical reactions have been repeatedly foiled by both the size and complexity of the task, which require more than the effort of a handful of researchers. Since the development of advanced physical models for dust behavior is projected to take years, what if laypeople could dramatically expedite this process by using their mobile devices as measurement tools? With relatively little effort by many individuals, previously unknown information about the earth’s atmosphere may at last become accessible thanks to recent advances in artificial intelligence. However, there are potential obstacles. Even if all technical problems are resolved, viable plans for battling particulate matter pollution will likely need to be accompanied by environmental policies. While technological breakthroughs give reason to hope for a brighter future, the resolution of global issues requires both grassroots changes and global efforts.
The Differences in Semantic Processing of Pictures and Words between Dyslexic and Typical-Reading University Students  [PDF]
Shelley Shaul, Ziva Rom
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2019.102018
Abstract: The present study compared the semantic processing of pictures and words by dyslexics to that of typical readers utilizing the electro-physiological (ERP) technique during a semantic categorization decision task. ERPs of 40 university students, 20 typical readers and 20 dyslexic readers were recorded while they participated in a categorization decision task. The subjects were presented with two kinds of stimuli—words and pictures. Results revealed longer reaction times in response to words as compared to pictures in both groups. Electrophysiological measures revealed differences in amplitudes and latencies of ERP components in addition to differences in the mean activity. The results illustrated that the differences between processing words and processing pictures were manifested in timing and in the brain areas involved in the tasks. It also illustrated that although dyslexic and typical readers displayed equal ability to read and understand familiar words, dyslexics could not perform as quickly as typical readers. The semantic domain may be one of the compensatory mechanisms which help compensated dyslexic readers reach and succeed in the higher education system.
New Techniques in Project Management  [PDF]
Cameron Fisher
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2014.412080
Abstract: Managing multiple candidate initiatives and in-flight projects across business units is a big challenge for organizations. Tracking progress of projects while balancing demand against available resources to ensure successful completion is difficult. Increasingly, organizations deploy a Project Portfolio Management (PPM) system. These new PPM solutions simplify portfolio governance and strive to guide enterprise innovation. For maximum benefits, the frameworks that shepherd initiatives and bolster project efficiency must not obstruct ideation, bottom-up creativity and entrepreneurship.

Cloud versus On-Premise Computing  [PDF]
Cameron Fisher
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2018.89133
Abstract: When investigating new choices for enterprise solutions, decision-makers need to increasingly weigh the merits of Cloud offerings. Accessibility, performance and security are key requirements along with vendor reputation and user community. The race to acquire customers and expand market share is prompting vendors to offer attractive introductory pricing to capture Cloud tenants. To keep in mind long term TCO and business outcomes, it’s essential to conduct due diligence to minimize risks or surprises. Knowing the business, technology and contractual drivers will inform the decisions on the future of Cloud at your organization. Decisions to embrace the Cloud will always require complete analysis of the options and business metrics. After performing a full needs analysis and understanding the variables, a reliable and cost-effective result is better selected and managed. This paper outlines fundamentals to understand the implications for deciding on Cloud versus On-Premise Computing going forward.

Structural Analysis of Factors Influencing the Adjustment Behaviors of Korean Children in the U.S  [PDF]
Sunjin Oh, Mack C. Shelley
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2010.15048
Abstract: The purpose of this study was to identify factors influencing the adjustment of Korean children who live in the U.S. Specifically, this study examined the following predictor variables: English proficiency, peer relationships, family relationships, and school experiences. Forty seven Korean children who were attending the Korean Language School and their parents participated in this study. Pearson product moment correlations indicated that there was a statistically significant relationship between the adjustment of Korean children who live in the U.S. and their English proficiency, peer relationships, and school experiences. There was no statistically significant relationship between the adjustment of Korean children who live in the U.S. and their family relationships. Additionally, structural equation modeling (SEM) was examined to explore how English proficiency, family relationships, peer relationships, and school experiences may serve as influential factors for adjustment of Korean children who live in the U.S. The resulting model had a good fit, χ2 = 2.02, χ2/df = 1.01, comparative fit index (CFI) = 1.00, root mean square error of approximation (RMSEA) = 0.02, which is small enough to indicate a good fit, and indicated that Korean children’s school experiences had the strongest relationship with their overall adjustment score (β = .73, p < .001). However, the effects of English proficiency and family relationships on adjustment were mediated through school experiences, although it is important to note that English proficiency did not have a positive relationship with school experience (β = -.38, p = .340), but Korean children’s school experiences were positively associated with their English proficiency (β = .68, p < .05).
