Using the GLOBE Program to Educate Students on the Interdependence of Our Planet and People  [PDF]
Sherry S. Herron, Jennifer L. Robertson
Creative Education (CE) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2013.44A005
We present how we have used GLOBE protocols and programs in a college undergraduate English course for science and non-science majors, Writing in the Sciences, and in a graduate-level field course for in-service teachers. Collecting land cover data and determining biomass in conjunction with a series of writing assignments allowed the English students to connect their work to research done in ecosystems throughout the world, and to specific environmental concerns such as carbon sequestration, biodiversity, and the impact of controlled burning on ecosystems. Teachers demonstrated increased knowledge of ecology, natural histories of various organisms, and awareness of environmental resources. A study conducted the following summer revealed that teachers valued the course and felt that their experiences helped them be more effective teachers. Six of the eight teachers had conducted field activities with their students, but also reported significant challenges associated with the effort.

Open Journal of Ophthalmology (OJOph) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojoph.2017.71002
Abstract: Aim: To study clinical and epidemiological characteristics of child’s ocular injuries. Patients and Method: Retrospective study on medical records of children suffering from traumatic injuries of the ocular globe presented to the Campus Teaching Hospital (CHU Campus) of Lomé from 3 January 2015 to 30 June 2016 (18 months). Age, sex, nature of the traumatising agent, consultation delay and the width of the injury (zone I, II or III), the classification of ocular trauma, according to “Birmingham Eye Trauma Terminology (BETT) system”, connected lesions have been studied. Results: Twenty children about 46.51% children presented for ocular trauma have been suffering from a globe injury. The average age was 6.68 years with the extremes of 1 year and 12 years; the age bracket of 0 - 5 years was more represented (45%); predominance was more from the female with a sex-ratio = 0.67. Eighty percent of the children were from rural areas while twenty from urban areas. The delay of consultation was less than 24 hours in 40% of cases and 15% consulted between 24 h and 72 h after the trauma. Traumatisms were entirely unilateral and penetrating within a majority of 15 (75%) cases of which a “stick” is the traumatising agent of the most frequent (40%). The seat of the injury was the zone I (85.71%) and zone II (14.29%). Connected lesions were dominated by iris hernia 7 (35%) and traumatic cataract 6 (30%). Conclusion: children’s traumas were high predominantly and they came in majority from rural zones. Prevention through awareness remains the best treatment.
The Utility of Bedside Ultrasound in the Detection of a Ruptured Globe in a Porcine Model
Chandra, Amit,Mastrovitch, Todd,Ladner, Heidi,Ting, Vincent
Western Journal of Emergency Medicine : Integrating Emergency Care with Population Health , 2009,
Abstract: Background: Recent case reports have shown that ultrasonography can be used to diagnose ocular pathology in an emergency setting. Ultrasound may be especially useful when periorbital edema and pain interfere with the examination of the post-traumatic eye.Objective: This study evaluated the ability of emergency physicians to detect a ruptured globe in an ex-vivo porcine model.Methods: Following a brief training lecture, 15 emergency medicine residents and 4 emergency medicine attending physicians used ultrasonography to evaluate 18 porcine eyes, randomized as normal, ruptured, or completely devoid of vitreous humor. The consequences of ultrasound applanation with this method were evaluated by measuring intraocular pressure changes with and without a 1mm clear plastic shield.Results: Our study participants were able to identify abnormal eyes with a sensitivity of 79% (95% CI 73% to 84%) and a specificity of 51% (95% CI 41% to 61%). Intraocular pressure increased 5% with ultrasound applanation, though with a 1mm thick plastic shield there was no measurable change.Conclusions: Ultrasound imaging may be a future modality to be used by trained emergency physicians to expedite the identification of a rupture globe, but it is unlikely to replace more definitive imaging techniques. The use of a clear plastic barrier in this porcine model prevents an increase in intra-ocular pressure without affecting image quality, and should be used in any future studies on this method.[West J Emerg Med. 2009;10(4):263-266.]
Traumatic bilateral globe avulsion (case report)
hassan razmju,marjan masjedi
Journal of Research in Medical Sciences , 2009,
Abstract: Avulsion of the globe is a rare event, and there are only a few reports of true total enucleation of the globes in he literature. We report a 20-year-old man who was a victim of car accident, with bilateral enucleation of the globe. This is the third reported case of bilateral subluxated globes that were successfully repositioned in the orbits. Although the patient had no light perception vision, preserving his one eye reduced the psychological stress of sudden traumatic loss of vision for him and his relatives. KEYWORDS: Globe Avulsion, Traumatic Enucleation.

The interest of Turkey with the island has begun accompanied by the Otoman Empire conquest the island in 1571. The period which left behind is an agitating period. The Cyprus has been protecting its strategical importance for Turkey today, as well.Turkey, based on the Agreement which was signed in1960 among Greece, England and Turkey had to interfere to the island on 20th July, 1974. In this study, the reflections and comments of that interference day and the following days on foreign press, on the Canada newspaper named “The Globe and Mail”that has 164 years of past were taken in hand. In mentioned writings, it should be noted that there is no any technical criticism related to the military operation which was realized by the Turkish Military Powers.The most important inference which will be obtained from the reflected news and comments on The Globe and Mail newspaper is the emphasis of Turkey is an occupier and performed genocide in the island.

Abstract: Virtual Globes such as Google Earth TM, revolutionize the way scientists conduct their research and the way the general public use geospatial – related data and information. Improvement in the processing power and storage capacities of computers, along with the increased Internet accessibility and connectivity, has supported the usage of Virtual Globes technologies. Even more, software releases of freely downloadable Virtual Globes, such as Google Earth and NASA World Wind, has sparked an enormous public interest and increased people’s awareness of spatial sciences.In this study, the Virtual Globes (VG) revolution is discussed and a client - server Graphical User Interface (GUI) application is presented. The developed application enables Google Earth TM Application Program Interface and activates spatial analysis, through enhanced JavaScripts and Visual Basic script codes. The main scope was to present the methodology followed during geological modeling along with the application capabilities when handling with data derived from digitized geological maps and field measurements.

Genetics and Molecular Biology , 2005, DOI: 10.1590/S1415-47572005000300016
Abstract: the inheritance of head color and tightness in globe artichoke was studied utilizing crosses between inbreed lines and between clones and self-pollinated clones from different genetic origins. these genetic materials were sowed in a completely randomized design with 20 plants per plot and genotype. globe artichoke heads were classified into three colors (purple-green, purple and green) and three head tightness types (compact, fairly compact and soft) and the segregating ratios for these traits tested in each offspring using the chi-square test. crosses between green and purple inbreed lines produced only purple-green heads but f2 generation segregated at a purple-green:purple:green ratio of 9:3:4. the self-pollinated compact head clones produced a compact head:fairly compact head:soft head ratio of 12:3:1. the remaining crosses between lines and among clones and backcrosses verified these ratios. these results suggest that two loci with a simple recessive epistasis are involved in the inheritance of head color and that two loci with simple dominant epistasis are involved in the expression of the different head tightness types. the inheritance models proposed here could be helpful in predicting the appearance of artichoke heads if breeders need to obtain hybrid seeds for a desirable phenotype.

Abstract: meningeal syndromes are evaluated in clinical practice by classic semiological signs all of them showing important sensibility and specificity but with some limitations. thus, we propose a clinical method in order to diagnose meningeal syndromes capable of being easily executed and without risks for patients: to evaluate the pain by ocular globe compression as a semiological sign in meningeal syndromes. we studied 160 patients both gender, assorted age, distributed into two groups of patients, group i with meningeal syndrome and group ii without meningeal syndrome. results: in group i (n=80), at least one of the classic signal in meningeal syndrome was present in 71 patients (88.75%), while pain by ocular globe compression was positive in 78 patients (98.7%) with meningeal syndrome. in group i, this sign reached important sensibility (97.5%), specificity (98.8%) in meningeal syndromes. in conclusion, pain by ocular globe compression seems to be an important semiological sign and would be better investigated.
