Addressing the needs of children with disabilities experiencing disaster or terrorism
Purpose of review: This paper reviews the empirical literature on psychosocial factors relating to children with disabilities in the context of disaster or terrorism. Recent findings: Research indicates individuals with ...
Succession Planning in Academic Libraries: A Reconsideration
(Emerald Group Publishing Limited, 2015)
It has been widely projected in the library literature that a substantial number of librarians will retire in the near future leaving significant gaps in the workforce, especially in library leadership. Many of those ...
Synthesis, transport and magnetic properties of Ba-Co-Ge clathrates
Ba-Co-Ge intermetallic clathrates were synthesized in both type-I and chiral-type crystal structures to investigate thermoelectric and physical properties. Seebeck coefficients, thermal conductivities, electrical resistivities, ...
NMR and Computational Study of Ba8CuxGe46-x clathrate semiconductors
Ba8CuxGe46-x is a type-I clathrate material that forms as a semiconductor in a narrow composition range corresponding to the electron-balanced Zintl composition, with x = 5.3. We use NMR spectroscopy combined with ab initio ...
NMR relaxation and rattling phonons in type-I Ba8Ga16Sn30 clathrate
(American Physical Society, 2011)
Atomic motion of guest atoms inside semiconducting clathrate cages is considered an important source for glasslike thermal behavior. 69Ga and 71Ga nuclear magnetic resonance studies on type I Ba8Ga16Sn30 show a clear ...
Evaluation of best practices in the design of online evidence-based practice instructional modules
(JMLA: Journal of the Medical Library Association, 2014)
OBJECTIVES: The research determined to what extent best practices are being followed by freely available online modules aimed at teaching critical thinking and evidence-based practices (EBPs) in health sciences ...
Franz Ehrhardt (1898-1918): A Soldier Artist on the Western Front
Memoir and letter of German artist and soldier Franz Ehrhardt (1898-1918), who died on the Western Front on August 9, 1918. Transcribed from the original Kurrentschrift manuscripts, with introduction and explanatory notes.
High-field magneto-thermo-mechanical testing system for characterizing multiferroic bulk alloys
(AIP Publishing, 2015)
Multiferroic meta-magnetic shape memoryalloys are well known for exhibiting large magnetic field induced actuation strains, giant magnetocaloric effects, magneto-resistance, and structural and magnetic glassy behaviors. ...
Zintl behavior and vacancy formation in type-I Ba-Al-Ge clathrates
(American Physical Society, 2010)
In a study of type-I Ba8AlxGe46−x clathrates for 4≤x≤16, several samples with different stoichiometric compositions were prepared and measured. Here we report wavelength dispersion spectroscopy, powder x-ray diffraction ...
Correlative Gene Expression to Protective Seroconversion in Rift Valley Fever Vaccinates
Rift Valley fever Virus (RVFV), a negative-stranded RNA virus, is the etiological agent of the vector-borne zoonotic disease, Rift Valley fever (RVF). In both humans and livestock, protective immunity can be achieved through ...
