El tiempo en La Celestina : el deseo, el placer y el egoísmo como motivos de interpretación de la obra

Diana Galarreta Aima
The study of the temporal consciousness of La Celestina’s characters allow us to understand better the ongoing changes of the society at the end of the Middle Ages. At the same time, the analysis of this precise and special historic period provides us certain keys to comprehend the way of thinking and acting of the characters. The proposal of this article is doing an analysis in two directions, apparently conflicting, but complementary: on one hand,...

Transtibial Tunnel Placement in Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction - How it Relates to the Anatomic Footprint

Joseph Hart, Mark Tompkins, Tom Keller, Matt Milewski, Christopher Gaskin, Stephen Brockmeier & Mark Miller
Abstract BACKGROUND: It is common to place the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tibial tunnel with a transtibial technique using a guide that attempts to place the center of the tunnel 1 to 1.5 cm distal to the tibiofemoral joint. It is unknown how well this technique will re-create the native tibial footprint of the PCL. PURPOSE: To evaluate the accuracy of tibial tunnel placement using a transtibial technique. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study. METHODS: Ten...

Deflowering History: An Examination of Rape, Slavery, and the University of Virginia

Landon Wilkins
On April 22, 1850, three university students allegedly perpetrated the rape of a 17-year-old enslaved girl. Historic scholarship argues that the three students were promptly expelled. Drawing on extensive study of archives and historical works, this Capstone argues that the sexual assault of an enslaved 17-year-old would have been unremarkable at the time and attempts to prove the students were not expelled for rape. The question is asked: What are the verifiable dynamics of the...

Determinants of genetic structure in a nonequilibrium metapopulation of the plant Silene latifolia

Peter Fields & Douglas Taylor
Population genetic differentiation will be influenced by the demographic history of populations, opportunities for migration among neighboring demes and founder effects associated with repeated extinction and recolonization. In natural populations, these factors are expected to interact with each other and their magnitudes will vary depending on the spatial distribution and age structure of local demes. Although each of these effects has been individually identified as important in structuring genetic variance, their relative magnitude is seldom...

The User Experience: Focus Group Insights

Melinda Baumann
The author discusses the results of three focus groups she facilitated about Maker spaces in April 2017 for the University of Virginia Library. All focus group participants valued inclusivity, expressing strong opinions that a Maker space should be "open to all" and should have an accessible layout.

The Russian Military and the Georgia War: Lessons and Implications

Robert Hamilton & Ariel Cohen
In August 2008, the armed conflict on the territory of Georgia's breakaway regions of South Ossetia and Abkhazia broke out between Russia and Georgia. The Russian-planned military campaign lasted 5 days until the parties reached a preliminary ceasefire agreement on August 12. The European Union, led by the French presidency, mediated the ceasefire. After signing the agreement, Russia pulled most of its troops out of uncontested Georgian territories, but established buffer zones around Abkhazia and...

Upside Versus Downside Risk: Gender, Stakes, and Skewness: Single Decision Data

Charles Holt & Irene Comeig
Upside Versus Downside Risk: Gender, Stakes, and Skewness * Irene Comeig, Charles Holt, and Ainhoa Jaramillo-Gutiérrez The simplest perspective on risky choice is in terms of a tradeoff between higher expected payoff and higher payoff variability. Subjects in a simple experiment, however, exhibit more aversion to “downside risk” (with a small probability of a relatively low payoff) and more attraction to an equivalent “upside risk” (with a small probability of a high payoff). Females tend...

Can land use intensification in the Mallee, Australia increase the supply of soluble iron to the Southern Ocean?

Abinash Bhattachan & Paolo D'Odorico
The supply of soluble iron through atmospheric dust deposition limits the productivity of the Southern Ocean. In comparison to the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere exhibits low levels of dust activity. However, given their proximity to the Southern Ocean, dust emissions from continental sources in the Southern Hemisphere could have disproportionate impact on ocean productivity. Australia is the largest source of dust in the Southern Hemisphere and aeolian transport of dust has major ecological, economic...

Valuing Unique Natural Resources: The Case of Endangered Species

Mark White
The valuation of environmental goods and services is an area of significant recent interest with ramifications for environmental policy-making and natural resource damage assessments. Controversy exists over the best way to determine passive-use values , i.e., benefits accruing to individuals based on the knowledge that a specific environmental resource exists or the knowledge that it will be available for future generations. The contingent valuation method (CVM) is at present the only technique available for determining...

Shakespearean Being: The Victorian Bard

Herbert Tucker
Shakespeare's pervasive Victorian influence comes into focus in the era's leading new genres: the dramatic monologue and the lyric sequence. A general discussion of leading Shakespearean heirs introduces detailed focus on sonnets about Shakespeare by Matthew Arnold, A. C. Swiinburne, and Robert Browning.

Role of crystal structure and junction morphology on interface thermal conductance

Carlos A. Polanco, Rouzbeh Rastgarkafshgarkolaei, Jingjie Zhang, Nam Q. Le, Pamela Norris, Patrick Hopkins & Avik Ghosh
We argue that the relative thermal conductance between interfaces with different morphologies is controlled by crystal structure through Mmin/Mc > 1, the ratio between the minimum mode count on either side Mmin, and the conserving modes Mc that preserve phonon momentum transverse to the interface. Junctions with an added homogenous layer, “uniform,” and “abrupt” junctions are limited to Mc, while junctions with interfacial disorder, “mixed,” exploit the expansion of mode spectrum to Mmin. In our...

Teaching nature study on the blackboard in late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century England

Caitlin Wylie
England’s Education Acts in the late nineteenth century made school free and mandatory for all children, filling schools with more and younger students. Visual teaching methods such as blackboard drawing were used to catch young students’ eyes and engage their interest. At the same time, there was high public engagement with natural history and popular science lectures, which built the perception of science as accessible, interesting and useful for people of all social classes. This...

Trust in technicians in paleontology laboratories

Caitlin Wylie
New technologies can upset scientific workplaces’ established practices and social order. Digital imaging of rock-encased fossils is a valuable way for scientists to “see” a specimen without traditional rock removal. However, interviews in vertebrate paleontology laboratories reveal workers’ skepticism towards computed tomography (CT) imaging. Scientists criticize replacing physical fossils with digital images because, they say, images are more subjective than the “real thing.” I argue that these scientists are also implicitly supporting rock-removal technicians, who...
