Family environments and early development in low-income Nicaraguan children
H. Abigail Raikes
Revista Interamericana de Psicología , 2005,
Abstract: Las asociaciones entre las características de los ni os y las familias con el estado de desarrollo de los ni os se examinaron en una muestra de 95 ni os nicaragüenses de bajos recursos económicos, de edades comprendidas entre los dos meses y los cinco a os. Se prestó particular atención a la interacción de las características del ni o y su familia con el desarrollo, y a entender como diferentes dominios del desarrollo (tales como el lenguaje y las actividades motoras) son afectadas de manera diferente por las características del ni o y su familia. Las variaciones en los resultados del desarrollo fueron explicadas por características del ni o (estado del peso y edad), y por características de la familia y el hogar (número de ni os menores de cinco a os en el hogar, densidad del hogar, e insuficiencias de alimentos reportadas), pero el desarrollo del lenguaje y de las actividades motoras finas fueron más sensibles a estos factores que el desarrollo social y las actividades motoras gruesas. En ni os de mayor edad, los retrasos en el desarrollo fueron más pronunciados, sugiriendo que las competencias más complejas requeridas en los ni os de edad preescolar pueden ser más difíciles de lograr en ambientes empobrecidos
Online Courses and Online Teaching Strategies in Higher Education  [PDF]
Abigail Mitchell
Creative Education (CE) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ce.2014.523225
Abstract: Online faculty need to engage the student. Online course work is now an integral element of mainstream higher education. Online courses often lack face-to-face interaction, peer interaction, faculty feedback and the lack of community. Engagement of the learner is essential for learning and promoting student satisfaction. There are online teaching strategies that could enhance a student’s perception of engagement. This manuscript was completed by a literature review process.

NMDAR-Mediated Calcium Transients Elicited by Glutamate Co-Release at Developing Inhibitory Synapses
Abigail Kalmbach,Paul H. M. Kullmann,Karl Kandler
Frontiers in Synaptic Neuroscience , 2010, DOI: 10.3389/fnsyn.2010.00027
Abstract: Before hearing onset, the topographic organization of the inhibitory sound localization pathway from the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB) to the lateral superior olive (LSO) is refined by means of synaptic silencing and strengthening. During this refinement period MNTB-LSO synapses not only release GABA and glycine but also release glutamate. This co-released glutamate can elicit postsynaptic currents that are predominantly mediated by NMDA receptors (NMDARs). To gain a better understanding of how glutamate contributes to synaptic signaling at developing MNTB-LSO inhibitory synapses, we investigated to what degree and under what conditions NMDARs contribute to postsynaptic calcium responses. Our results demonstrate that MNTB-LSO synapses can elicit compartmentalized calcium responses along aspiny LSO dendrites. These responses are significantly attenuated by the NMDAR antagonist APV. APV, however, had no effect on somatically recorded electrical postsynaptic responses, indicating little, if any, contribution of NMDARs to spike generation. NMDAR-mediated calcium responses were decreased when increasing extracellular magnesium concentrations to physiological levels indicating that MNTB-LSO synapses activate magnesium sensitive NMDAR on immature LSO dendrites. In Fura-2 AM loaded neurons, blocking GABAA and glycine receptors increased NMDAR contribution to somatic calcium responses suggesting that GABA and glycine, perhaps by shunting backpropagating action potentials, decrease the level of NMDAR activation under strong stimulus conditions.
Effect of Honey a Natural Sweetener with Several Medicinal Properties on the Attributes of a Frozen Dessert Containing the Probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus  [PDF]

Open Journal of Medical Microbiology (OJMM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojmm.2013.32015
Abstract: Lactobacillus acidophilus has several health advantages. Honey has several medicinal properties and is also a natural sweetener which could be used in frozen desserts. There are various types of honey based on color namely, light, amber and dark. Influence of honey on attributes of a probiotic frozen dessert is not known. The objective was to study the effect of light, amber colored and dark honey on the Lactobacillus acidophilus counts and quality attributes of probiotic ice cream. Ice creams were manufactured with use of Lactobacillus acidophilus at 50 g of frozen culture concentrate per 7.75 liters of ice cream mix and with the use of light or amber or dark honey individually. Control had no honey and was sweetened with sugar. Use of honey increased Lactobacillus acidophilus counts and viscosity, while decreased pH and melt down volume. Light honey ice cream had flavor and appearance scores comparable to the control vanilla ice cream. Light honey can be recommended for the manufacturing Lactobacillus acidophilus probiotic ice creams thus having a frozen dessert with the health advantageous medicinal properties of honey.

"Wenn ich nicht nerv s bin, mach ich mir Sorgen – macht das Sinn?" Der Gebrauch von Emotionsbegriffen in Leistungsbeschreibungen von Athleten "If I'm Not Nervous, I'm Worried, Does That Make Sense?": The Use of Emotion Concepts by Athletes in Accounts of Performance "Si no estoy nervioso, estoy preocupado, tiene eso sentido?": el uso de los conceptos de emoción que hacen los atletas al relatar el rendimiento

Forum : Qualitative Social Research , 2003,
Abstract: Traditionell hat sich die Erforschung von Emotionen im Sport auf den Einfluss spezifischer Emotionen, im Besonderen der Angst, auf die Leistung konzentriert. Dieser Artikel behandelt Emotionen aus der Perspektive der Diskursiven Psychologie und nutzt hierbei die Methoden der Diskursanalyse und der Konversationsanalyse. Auf der Basis von Interviewdaten von Hochleistungssportlern untersucht dieser Artikel den Gebrauch von Emotionsbegriffen bei Beschreibungen athletischer Leistungen. Was diese Analyse zeigt, ist, dass obwohl Athleten behaupten, spezifische Emotionen wie Nervosit t seien bei sportlichen Leistungen normal, das Empfinden solcher Emotionen in der Vorbereitung zu einem Wettbewerb von ihnen nicht erw hnt wird, wenn sie ihre Beschreibungen von Versagen konstruieren. Im Unterschied zur traditionellen sportspsychologischen Forschung, die Emotionen, z.B. Angst, als quantifizierbar betrachtet, demonstriert dieser Artikel, dass Emotionsbegriffe eine vielf ltige Interaktionsbasis darstellen, die in unsere Diskurspraktiken eingebettet ist. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0301105 Traditionally research into emotions in sport has focused on the impact of specific emotions upon performance, most notably anxiety. This paper approaches emotion from the perspective of discursive psychology, drawing on the methods of discourse analysis and conversation analysis. Using interview data from high level athletes, this paper examines the uses of emotion concepts in accounts of athletic performance. What becomes apparent through the analysis is that athletes claim that specific emotions such as nervousness are normal in sporting performance. In contrast, when accounting for failure, the athletes construct their build-up to the competition as containing no experience of these emotions. Rather than in traditional sports psychological research whereby emotions are seen to be quantifiable, this paper demonstrates how emotion terms form a rich interactional currency that are embedded within our accounting practices. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0301105 Tradicionalmente la investigación sobre las emociones en el deporte se ha centrado en el impacto de las emociones específicas sobre la acción, principalmente en el caso de la ansiedad. Este artículo se aproxima a la emoción desde la perspectiva de la psicología discursiva, a través de los métodos de análisis de discurso y análisis de la conversación. Utilizando los datos de entrevistas a atletas de alto nivel, el artículo examina el uso de los conceptos de emoción en relatos del rendimiento atlético. Lo que parece evidente a través del
"The Man of these Infinite Possibilities": Max Ernst’s Cinematic Collages
Abigail Susik
Contemporaneity : Historical Presence in Visual Culture , 2011, DOI: 10.5195/contemp.2011.27
Abstract: On more than one occasion in his critical writings of the 1920’s, surrealist leader André Breton compared Max Ernst’s collages to cinema. In his first essay on the artist in 1921, Breton aligned Ernst’s collages with cinematic special effects such as slow and accelerated motion, and spoke of the illusionistic ‘transformation from within’ that characterized Ernst’s constructed scenes. For Breton, Ernst’s collages employing found commercial, scientific and journalistic images approximated the naturalistic movement of film, and thereby contributed to the radical obsolescence of traditional two-dimensional media such as painting and drawing, which remained frozen in stillness. Thus, Ernst’s images were provocative witnesses to the way in which modern technology fundamentally altered the perspectivally-ordered picture plane. But at the same time that Ernst’s collages rendered painting obsolete, they likewise depended upon fragments of outmoded popular culture themselves. For Breton, Ernst was a magician, “the man of these infinite possibilities,” comparable to cinematic prestidigators like turn-of-the-century filmmaker Georges Méliès. By drawing on the influence of recently outmoded popular culture such as early trick films, Ernst provides a crucial early example of the post-war fixation on counter-temporalities and anti-production. At once technologically advanced and culturally archeological, Ernst’s collages cannily defy strict categorization as “Modernist.”
Invariants of curves in RP^2 and R^2
Abigail Thompson
Mathematics , 2006, DOI: 10.2140/agt.2006.6.2175
Abstract: There is an elegant relation found by Fabricius-Bjerre [Math. Scand 40 (1977) 20--24] among the double tangent lines, crossings, inflections points, and cusps of a singular curve in the plane. We give a new generalization to singular curves in RP^2. We note that the quantities in the formula are naturally dual to each other in RP^2, and we give a new dual formula.
Finding geodesics in a triangulated 2-sphere
Abigail Thompson
Mathematics , 2014,
Abstract: Let S be a triangulated 2-sphere with fixed triangulation T. We apply the methods of thin position from knot theory to obtain a simple version of the three geodesics theorem for the 2-sphere [5]. In general these three geodesics may be unstable, corresponding, for example, to the three equators of an ellipsoid. Using a piece-wise linear approach, we show that we can usually find at least three stable geodesics.
