A World Without Words: Reconceptualizing Aphasia Through the Agency of Rape Survivors in America

Marina Garrett
This study examines the overwhelming silence survivors of rape feel in the United States. Using a feminist activist anthropological framework, I examine the ways rape culture in the United States has caused rape survivors to feel they do not matter, which causes them to lose their ability to speak. The culture of silence that thrives within police departments across the U.S. is the first space of silence rape survivors encounter. As they move forward from...

Sexual Minority Youth are Over-represented and Have Worse Outcomes in the Child Welfare System

Stephen T. Russell, Laura Baams, Jessica N. Fish, Bianca D.M. Wilson & Armeda Stevenson Wojciak
This brief, from PRC faculty research associate Stephen T. Russell and colleagues, reports on a study using nationally representative data to show that the over-representation of sexual minority youth in child welfare systems is a national phenomenon. This brief also reports on a companion study which finds that sexual minority youth in foster care or out-of-home placement experience more victimization, poorer school functioning, more substance use, and poorer mental health compared with heterosexual youth.

Exploring the σ2R/TMEM97 protein‐mediated neuroprotective pathway in a C. elegans Alzheimer’s Disease Model of Neurodegeneration

Ted Shi
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the leading causes of death in the aging population around the world. Two genetic risk factors highly correlate with and synergize in the development of AD: mutations altering copy number or processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and the apolipoprotein E4 (APOE4) allelic variant. Using the genetically malleable nematode, C. elegans, we generated a strain expressing a single‐copy human APP and multiple copies of human APOE4, from which...

The End of the End of History: Reimagining U.S. Foreign Policy for the 21st Century (February 2019)

Ben Sasse
Americans lack a shared vision of what the role of the United States ought to be in the world. It's time for America to start asking itself some tough questions about the future of American leadership and for U.S. leaders to rethink how to persuade the American people of the value of an American-led, American-powered global order.

How to Think About Nuclear Crises (February 2019)

Mark S. Bell & Julia Macdonald
How dangerous are nuclear crises? What dynamics underpin how they unfold? Recent tensions between North Korea and the United States have exposed disagreement among scholars and analysts regarding these questions. We reconcile these apparently contradictory views by showing the circumstances in which different models of nuclear crises should be expected to hold. Nuclear crises should be expected to have different dynamics depending on two variables: the incentives to use nuclear weapons first in a crisis...

An experimental test of the effects of gender constancy on sex typing

Andrea Elizabeth Arthur
The study provides an experimental test of Kohlberg's claim that the achievement of gender constancy produces increases in children's sex typing. Preschool age children (N = 46) were randomly assigned to experimental groups and given lessons that taught that biological traits were: (a) fixed and stable across time and changes in appearance (i.e., pro-constancy training) or (b) mutable and variable across time and changes in appearance (i.e., anti-constancy training). Post-lesson testing sessions demonstrated that the...

Story Map Tool Lesson Plans

Jennifer Isasi
Through an experiential learning format, this 6-week plan is divided in three segments, each corresponding to the steps of the development of a digital project: theory, design and building of digital product, and public outreach. It has been designed to incorporate digital praxis into your courses, and move from theory to praxis. Students begin with readings that focus on the general notions of digital scholarship: digital methods for humanities research, collaboration, digital publication, etc. The...

Temporal trends in pediatric and young adult lipid testing and treatment and cost-effectiveness analysis of universal vs. pediatric lipid screening methodology in the U.S.

Linda Chen &
Introduction: In 2011, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute recommended universal lipid screening of all youth and adolescents at ages 9-11 and 17-21 years of age. In contrast, the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force statement could not recommend screening one way or another. The difference was due to limited data on the effect of early screening and treatment, especially in the 20-35 year old population, and limited cost-effectiveness evidence for universal screening. Purpose: The...

Impact of values on parents' willingness to collect and share children's mobile-sensing data

Hannah Irene Levin
Mobile sensors provide a new opportunity to measure and intervene in child development. The present study seeks to determine the conditions for parental participation in mobile sensor studies and applications. A survey was administered to parents (n=210) of a child under the age of five. Results indicate that parents are significantly more willing to collect information on physical activity/vitals and location type (82 and 78% respectively indicated they were at least somewhat willing; ≥SW) compared...

Seismic chronostratigraphy for reservoir characterization : modeling and applications

Yawen He &
The assumption of the chronostratigraphic significance of seismic reflections serves as a fundamental premise in interpreting stratigraphy from seismic images. This hypothesis proposed in 1977 was initially applied to delineate depositional sequences as the basic interpretive unit, and then to reconstruct Wheeler Diagram and regional sea level curves. After a further comparison against with global eustatic events, these regional curves can further facilitate predicting the age, distribution, and facies of depositional sequence before drilling in...

Modeling of geochemical reactions with fluid flow simulation for scale precipitation and alkaline/surfactant/polymer flooding processes

Emre Ozen &
Precipitation of minerals is a very prevalent and crucial challenge that occurs once there are two different water phases (types), which consist of different concentration of elements, in a reservoir with changing environmental parameters such as temperature and pressure. Most operated oil and gas fields have been facing the problem of deposition of scales around and inside the wellbore since they have not only water injection but also water production. There is a lack of...

Substrates and Regulation of the RNA Phosphatase DUSP11

Victor Lam
DUSP11 (Dual-specificity phosphatase 11) is an understudied human RNA phosphatase with an unclear function. DUSP11 converts 5′ triphosphates on RNAs into 5′ monophosphates, and it is required for the efficient biogenesis of some bovine leukemia virus-encoded microRNAs1. However, there is little understanding of DUSP11 substrates and the biochemical pathways it participates in. Here, I test the activity of DUSP11 on potential viral and transposon RNA substrates as well as the potential regulation of DUSP11 via...

Point of view in two West African novels : a comparison of Armah's The beautyful ones are not yet born and Sembène's Les bouts de bois de Dieu

This study is an initial experiment which attempts to examine African novels in French and English with the aid of a number of critical concepts connected with point of view. It will however use these concepts to a special end: the examination of point of view will focus primarily on the relationship of the author with the fictional world he creates, and more especially with his characters; and it is hoped that from the study...

The development of Thorstein Veblen's theory of economic revolution

From the moment when Dr. Robert H. Montgomery's brilliant lectures enticed me into a study of economics, I have had a growing interest in Thorstein Veblen. A non-conformist in both his writings and his life, he was denied the honor and fame which would have come had he been more conventional. Yet it was because he refused to accept blindly any custom, convention, or theory that his works seem destined to outlive those produced by...

The public-interest concept : a study in social control

The government-business relationship, and the strategic position therein occupied by the public-interest concept, has long been of considerable interest to me. Because it is an ever-changing relationship, studies made and theories formulated thirty or forty years ago seem inadequate today. This study is a re-examination of the development of this government-business relationship in an attempt to understand the role played by the public-interest concept
