All Over for Distributed Ensemble
"All Over" exploits technologies such as Voice Over Internet Protocol and collaborative social media to join composer Joe Pignato and author Ivan Robertson with musicians around the world for a live collaborative performance event. The performance will feature contributions from musicians at multiple sites in the United States, Canada, Europe, Israel, and New Zealand. Remote participants will join the performance via SKYPE video conferencing software.
Improvement in Cycling Peak Power as a Result of Low-Resistance Training with Conditions of Partial Vascular Occlusion
Increases in muscle hypertrophy and fiber activation have been achieved with the use of low-Ioad resistance training in conjunction with partial
vascular occlusion of the active muscle tissues (Takarada et al., 2001; Takarada et aI., 2004; Sumide et aI., 2007; Leonneke & Pujol, 2009).
Traditionally, similar gains in strength have only been elicited under conditions involving high-load resistance training (HL) at loads equal to or greater than 75% one-repetition maximum (lRM) (Baechle & Earle, 2008).
Rainforest Conservation: A Practical Example
Buena Vista is a not-for-profit 501c(3) corporation founded in 2010 to coordinate activities associated with preserving 100 acres of rain forest in southeastern Peru in part of the Manu Biosphere. During the last 11 years, Felipe Gomez, the main occupant of the property, an Amazonian Indian of the Piro tribe, has maintained the trails, the buildings, and protected the property from hunting and logging. Anecdotal observations indicate that wildlife sightings have improved during the last 11 years, including sightings of collared peccaries, woolly monkeys, and jaguars.
Immigration and Contemporary Dispersal of the Peat Moss, Sphagnum pylaesii, in the Adirondack Mountains, USA
Dispersal is an essential component of the plant life cycle. Dispersal precedes colonization of new habitat patches, allows an escape from competition, and permits gene flow between established populations (Howe and Smallwood 1982, van der Pijl 1982). Dispersal thus plays an important role in range expansion and in determining the spatial and genetic structure of plant populations (Levin et al. 2003). In bryophytes, competition between individual pjants is thought to be low to non-existent. Consequently, dispersal is assumed to be the primary determinant of local and global diversity patterns (Kimmerer 1994, 2005, Levin et al 2003, Watson 1980).
Women in Print: Analyzing Sexist Trends Advertising Over Time
This presentation analyzes several sexist trends in print advertising from the 1950s to 2011. Using the visual representations of actual print advertisements, we identify several similar themes across the decades. Using feminist and post-structural (Foucault, 1978; Collins, 2000) theoretical perspectives to sociologically examine gender inequality over time, this project identifies several concerns for women and their continual negative representation in commercial ad campaigns.
CN Abundances and Radial Distributions in a Sample of Eight Galactic Globular Clusters
Standard formation models predict that globular clusters should display little star-to-star variations in their elemental abundances. Observations over the past 30 years, however, have continually shown this not to be the case. For clusters of moderate and high metallicity, significant scatter in light element abundances, particularly CN molecular abundances, is seen everywhere on the RGB, sometimes even down to the MS. These types of variations aren't expected in a single population until the point on the RGB where the convective envelope dredges up CNO-processed material from the hydrogen burning shell. This suggests some form of enrichment within the cluster prior to, or shortly after, formation.
