    Title: Public Comment on the CPSC’s Proposed Rule: Safety Standard Addressing Blade-Contact Injuries on Table Saws
    Author: Miller, Sofie E.
    Description: The George Washington University Regulatory Studies Center improves regulatory policy through research, education, and outreach. As part of its mission, the Center conducts careful and independent analyses to assess rulemaking proposals from the perspective of the public interest. This comment on the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s proposed rule establishing performance standards for table saws does not represent the views of any particular affected party or special interest, but is designed to evaluate the effect of CPSC’s proposal on overall consumer welfare. Table saws, a category which includes bench, cabinet, and contractor saws, caused an estimated 54,800 blade-contact injuries in 2015. As a result, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has determined that there is an unnecessary risk of blade injuries from table saws, and is proposing a standard to limit this risk by requiring table saw manufacturers to “meet a performance requirement for table saws that limits the depth of a cut to the specified test probe, upon making contact with the saw blade at an approach rate of 1.0m/s, to 3.5 mm.”

    Title: I am My Lebeneh
    Author: Kramer, Maris
    Description: This paper examines how the culinary traditions of Bud’s homeland in Diana Abu-Jaber’s memoir, The Language of Baklava, help Bud manage a life comprised of two cultures. Bud, Abu-Jaber’s immigrant father, struggles to unite the memories of his Jordanian childhood with the realities of his new life in Syracuse, New York. Abu-Jaber notes that, as immigrants, her father and his brothers live in the “borderlands” between their new and native cultures (326). Gloria Anzaldúa presents this term in Borderlands/La Frontera, and it is upon this concept that the paper is based. Anzaldúa’s use of language, as presented in her chapter “How to Tame a Wild Tongue,” reinforces her position in the borderlands yet serves as a mechanism to manage conflicting identities and, in turn, construct her own. Similarly, Bud’s Jordanian culinary habits separate him from American culture yet allow him to form a new identity amidst the strains of displacement. In this way, Bud uses food to negotiate life in the borderlands as Anzaldúa uses language.
