Statistical Application in Economics  [PDF]
June Luo
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2012.21013
Abstract: Statisticians have recently proposed some methods for ranking the gene variables with outlier expressions. The major attraction of these methods is their ability to select the variables which show systematic decrease or increase in only a subset of samples in the disease group. In order to fully account for the outliers, in this article, we truncate the expression values and propose an alternative method to rank the variables with systematic increase or decrease. The proposed statistic is very simple to implement. Simulations and real data study show that the proposed statistic has a more powerful ability to rank the variables than some methods in literature.
A New Test for Large Dimensional Regression Coefficients  [PDF]
June Luo, Yi-Jun Zuo
Open Journal of Statistics (OJS) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ojs.2011.13025
Abstract: In the article, hypothesis test for coefficients in high dimensional regression models is considered. I develop simultaneous test statistic for the hypothesis test in both linear and partial linear models. The derived test is designed for growing p and fixed n where the conventional F-test is no longer appropriate. The asymptotic distribution of the proposed test statistic under the null hypothesis is obtained.
The design, development and evaluation of a self-instructional module for nursing practice standards  [PDF]
June Anonson, Mary Ellen Walker
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2013.38073

The purpose of this research was to improve nursing professionals’ understanding of the important link to safe, competent, and ethical practices that Nursing Practice Standards (NPS) serve. This research on NPS may improve the scope and comprehensiveness by which the Standards are integrated with clinical, educational, administrative, and research-based nursing practices. This research was unique in that it includes nurses in developing NPS. The method by which this study was done involved sixteen practicing nurses and seven instructional design experts from Alberta, Canada participating in designing, developing, and evaluating a NPS module. Nursing practice standards are a vital aspect of performing safe, efficient and effective patient care. The manner in which Nursing Standard Practices are presented and taught will directly influence a nurse’s ability to understand the value of NPS and successfully incorporate NPS into practice.

Analysis of CO2 Fluxes: Inclusion of Wall Conductance (Gw) on the Estimation of Rubisco Activity, Vcmax of Soybean Leaves
HAYATI Journal of Biosciences , 2011,
Abstract: In global change research, where modelling of CO2 fluxes from plants is an important component in determining vegetation capacity to protect the climate, mechanistic-based modelling is needed when projection of future CO2 absorption dynamics need to be estimated more accurately. Rubisco is the world’s most abundant protein in plants and has the job of uniquely preparing CO2 for chemical reduction. Rubisco activity in the leaf, described by Vcmax, can be estimated from gas exchange measurements of the initial slope of the response of CO2 assimilation rate, A, to intercellular [CO2]. This technique of estimation is favourable because it can avoid the uncertainties and difficulties when Vcmax is obtained directly by extraction and biochemical assay in artificial media. Rate of assimilation of soybean plants grown at different temperature (20/15, 25/20, and 32/27 oC day/night temperature) and [CO2] (350 and 700 mol mol-1), were measured using gas exchange. The effect of wall conductance (gw) on the parameterization of assimilations rate was observed. The temperature dependence of Vcmax depends strongly on wall conductance, where the shape of the curve would change significantly if finite wall conductance were included in the analysis. The implication is that it changes the values and interpretation of the temperature response of assimilation rate.
A Second Chance: The University of Cape Town's Diploma in Education
June Saldanha
Gateways : International Journal of Community Research & Engagement , 2009,
Abstract: This paper describes a curriculum that gives men and women from predominantly black working class communities a second chance to acquire a formal qualification at a higher education institution in South Africa. The curriculum provides the space for adult students to think critically about themselves and their practice and to develop a confident voice to express themselves. Through this process they develop both learner and educator identities and begin to see how the two intersect. The paper gives some of the historical background of the course, and shows how lecturers who have taught on the programme at different times have helped shape the curriculum. It goes on to discuss the changing nature of the student intake, the curriculum content and structure and ends with a discussion of the impact of the course, on students, staff and on the university as a whole. One very visible impact of the diploma is to be seen in the students who have gone on to acquire other postgraduate qualifications in adult education studies. On a university-wide level, through the involvement of adult education lecturers in other programmes and curricula, knowledge of and interest in adult learning is shared and encouraged.
Correlation Among Different Variables and Life Expectancy
June Liu
Undergraduate Journal of Mathematical Modeling : One + Two , 2011, DOI: 10.5038/2326-3652.3.2.2
Abstract: The purpose of this project is to show how heart rate, blood pressure, and weight of different species correlate with their life expectancy. We perform graphical analysis and compute Pearson's Product-Moment Correlation Coefficient to show that the heart rate has the highest degree of correlation with life expectancy.
Development to Unite Us: Autonomy and Multicultural Coexistence in Chiapas and Guatemala
June Nash
New Proposals : Journal of Marxism and Interdisciplinary Inquiry , 2008,
Abstract: Development was the buzz word in United States policy when I began my first field work as a student in Cantel, Guatemala, in 1953. The people of that much beleaguered country were still enjoying the “springtime of democracy” brought by the 1944 revolution that introduced land reform and education to the western highlands indigenous towns. I witnessed the U.S. instigated coup of 1954 that toppled the government of Arbenz and installed the puppet government of Colonel Castillo Armas. Thousands of union leaders and political activists were imprisoned or exiled, cattle owners released their herds into the lands taken over by peasants, a new order was installed in power claiming to bring prosperity and trade in the coming years. I went on to work in Chiapas in 1957 where the Mexican government was just beginning to introduce National Indigenist Institute programs for the integration of highland Mayas into the nation. These experiences shaped my understanding of what development from above meant in two countries that bridged the territory of the Mayan civilization. In this article I sum up the results of these two dominant patterns of development, one culminating in genocide and the other in ethnocide of the indigenous populations. The opening up of trade and enterprise with both countries has spawned new development programs such as the Plan Pueblo Panama embracing central American countries and southern Mexico in megaprojects to facilitate free trade agreements with the U.S. and Canada. These neoliberal policies aggravate the outpouring of resources that now include human labour power. I contrast this development with local initiatives now proposed by Mayas on both sides of the border.
The International Classification For Nursing Practice Project
Clark, June
Online Journal of Issues in Nursing , 1998,
Abstract: The rationale for standardised languages and classifications for nursing applies all over the world. Development in the USA was earlier than in other countries because of the imperatives of reimbursement systems, accreditation; and litigation. However, translation of languages developed in and for the USA may not be appropriate for other countries' practice; cultures, or health care systems. Many countries are already developing their own systems in their own languages, but others have no system. The International Council of Nurses' project to develop an International Classification for Nursing Practice will provide a unifying framework for existing systems and a system which can be used in countries which have none. Only when we have such a tool will we be able to describe and compare nursing practice across nations, and test the commonalties and differences of its concepts, values and practices.
BIOTROPIA : the Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Biology , 2005,
Abstract: The maximum rate of carboxylation (Kcmax) and maximum rate of regeneration of Ribulose bisphosphate (RuBP) (controlled by the rate of electron transport, Jmax) arc two processes governing the photosynthetic capacity of plants. Both processes are affected by temperature. This paper examines how the response of these two photosynthetic capacities to temperature determines the temperature response curve of the CO2-assimilation rate for plants grown at different temperatures, by using the concept of the Farquhar €3 photosynthesis model. The goal is to use photosynthetic parameters from CO2 and light curves to predict the temperature dependence of the CO2-assimilation rate (A) of soybean and to estimate the preferred growth temperature. Analysis shows that the op timum temperature of the assimilation rate changes with the changing temperature dependence of carboxylation and regeneration of RuBP.
