A recent spike in the misuse of prescription stimulant
medication among young adults has raised cause for concern on many college
campuses, as this growth has been attributed to an increasing number of
prescriptions being written by physicians as well as individuals turning away
The ρ(770) meson is the most extensively studied
resonance in lattice QCD simulations in two (Nf=2) and three (Nf=2+1) flavors. We analyze all available phase shifts from Nf=2 simulations using unitarized Chiral Perturbation Theory (UCHPT), and allowing not only for the extrapolation in mass but...
The replacement of Aid for Families with Dependent Children with Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) in 1996 revoked qualifying families'
legal guarantee of cash assistance benefits and instituted a
state-administered block grant program. Reflecting contemporary concerns...
Individuals who have eating disorders or are obese experience stigmatization,
which can lead to a variety of negative outcomes including further disordered
eating and lower self-esteem (Puhl & Suh, 2015). Research on stigmatization
of individuals with eating disorders and contributors to it is...
Antisocial disorders, such as psychopathy, are characterized by impairments
in social-emotional functioning. Individuals presenting with these disorders
are known to have distinct structural, particularly gray matter, brain
abnormalities. However, comorbidities (e.g., ADHD, drug use and abuse,...
This paper is an exploration into the variation of how different states in
the United States legislate
and prosecute anti-female hate crimes to determine whether hate crime
legislation is an effective response
to violence against women, especially sexual assault. The first step...
Despite a growing number of publications in recent years documenting the
impact of the German choreographer, Rudolf Laban, on 20th century European
dance theater, his contributions to the dance world have yet to be explored
from a statistical perspective. The prevailing literature points...
The prediction of bioconcentration factor is important
for the determination of potential environmental toxicity of new and existing
chemical substances. To this end, various in silico models for estimating
bioconcentration factor have been developed to replace or assist in vivo
Language structures may come in a variety of forms, but
are always received sequentially as meaning unfolds to the interpreter. Large
bodies of text can create a myriad of relationships and concepts, often
making it difficult to detect contradictions between elements that are far
In many Drosophila species, the fourth chromosome is
very small and bears relatively few genes. This "dot" chromosome is mostly
heterochromatic, has low rates of meiotic recombination, and replicates late
in the S phase of mitosis. Despite these hallmarks of suppressed gene
