121. ACCEPTED FOR PUBLICATION IN MIND & SOCIETY - Daniel M. T. Fessler
combining evolutionary and cultural perspectives, focuses on emotions, sex, eating, violence, self-1 control, risk taking, and cooperation. Stigmata, wounds resembling those of Christ, have been reported since the 13th century. The wounds typically appear in association with visions following prolonged fasting. This paper argues that selfstarvation holds the key to understanding this unique event. Stigmata may result from selfmutilation occurring during dissociation, phenomena precipitated in part by dietary constriction. Psychophysiological mechanisms produced by natural selection adjust the salience of risk in light of current resource abundance. As a result, artificial dietary constriction results in indifference to harm. A variety of...

122. Language Research Bulletin, 23, ICU, Tokyo Chinese, French, German, Korean, Russian, and Spanish Enrollments (1990-2007): Language, Year, Re-enrollments, and Academic Field - Jean-pierre Bésiat; Timothy J. Riney
Although Japanese and English are the primary languages of instruction at ICU, what will in this paper be labeled “Other Languages ” have also been taught, and some for several decades: Chinese, French, German, Korean, Russian, and Spanish. This is the first paper to appear in the LRB since its inception in 1986 that has dealt with the Other Languages as a group. The focus here is on student enrollments in relation to four variables: (a) language (e.g., Korean vs. Russian), (b) year (e.g., 1990 vs. 2007), (c) academic division or field (e.g., Humanities vs. Education), and (d) re-enrollment (e.g.,...

* Many of this paper’s ideas were inspired by conversations with Peter Bearman, Laszlo Bruszt and

124. Harvard University - Swapna Reddy; Stuart Shieber
Abstract. Ideally designed software allow users to explore and experiment during their interaction, and to pursue multiple, interleaving plans. This makes it challenging to automatically recognize users ’ interactions with such software. This paper shows that this recognition problem can be formalized and solved using constraint satisfaction techniques. It constructs algorithms that use these techniques to recognize users ’ activities by comparing their interaction histories with a set of ideal solutions. These plan-recognition algorithms are complete, in the sense that they are guaranteed to recognize users ’ plans if they exist. We evaluate these algorithms empirically on data obtained from...

Abstract The seasonal changes in the dynamics and life histories of the Cladocera in Lake Mangakaware, North Island, New Zealand, were studied over 19 months by sampling at weekly or 2-weekly intervals. Lake Mangakaware is a 13.3 ha polymictic lake with high nutrient status, low Secchi disc transparencies, and an unstable thermal regime. The four planktonic cladoceran species {Bosmina longirostris, B. meridionalis, Ceriodaphnia pulchella, and C. dubia) exhibited disjunct population maxima. Only B. longirostris was perennially present. All species exhibited low fecundities and low lipid content, indicating that food resources were limited and that competitive interactions and resistance to starvation...

126. Chronic Low-Level Mercury Exposure, BDNF Polymorphism, and Associations with Self-Reported Symptoms and Mood - James S. Woods
Recent reports have described neurobehavioral impairments in human subjects carrying a V66M polymorphism in the gene encoding brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Inasmuch as ventral nervous system (CNS) deficits associated with this BDNF polymorphism are similar to those observed among subjects with chronic exposure to elemental mercury (Hg), we examined the potential effect of this BDNF polymorphism on symptoms and mood in an established cohort of dental practitioners with chronic lowlevel Hg exposure. Self-reported symptoms and mood were obtained by computerized questionnaire from 193 male dentists (DTs) and 230 female dental assistants (DAs). Spot urine samples were analyzed for mercury concentrations...

127. LANDSLIDE DAMS: ANALYSIS OF CASE HISTORIES AND NEW PERSPECTIVES FROM THE APPLICATION OF REMOTE SENSING MONITORING TECHNIQUES TO HAZARD AND RISK ASSESSMENT - L. Ermini; N. Casagli; P. Farina
Landslide dams may form suddenly and unexpectedly, thereby posing hazards that must be rapidly assessed. In areas placed upstream, respect to the river dammed section, waters blocked by the dam may provoke floods spreading for kilometers, causing damages

128. Flame Investigation of Burning Titanium Powder - S. Kelzenberg; V. Weiser; E. Roth; O. Schulz; N. Eisenreich
Titanium is a metal included in igniters and pyrotechnic formulations because of its good ignitability and its complete burn-out which enable the full use of the high heat of reaction. In contrast to aluminium and boron, its burning behaviour has been investigated so far but the results are not conclusive. In this paper, the burning of titanium powder as bulk material in 1-gram scale was studied in an oxygen flow inside a window bomb. High-speed macro movies recorded the visual flame structure as well as moving and burning particles with 5000 fps. Timeresolved spectroscopy was applied to identify Ti-lines and...

129. Michty me, whit are ye gassin ’ aboot? The use of Scots in the newspaper comic strips The Broons and Oor Wullie - Haavet Bjørnson
Skotsk har lang historie som skriftspråk. Før Skottland og England ble forent under en konge ble det skrevet ekstensivt på skotsk, men da unionen ble et faktum begynte de fleste som kunne skrive å rette seg sørover med henhold til skriftspråket. Resultatet var at det skotske skriftspråket forsvant, med unntak av fra poesien, der det fortsatt sto sterkt. I dag er det flere og flere skotske forfattere som skriver på skotsk. Dessverre sliter de

130. REAL TIME MONITORING OF INFRASTRUCTURE USING TDR TECHNOLOGY: PRINCIPLES - Kevin M. O’connor; Charles H. Dowding
This presentation is intended to provide background on the principles involved in geotechnical and infrastructure applications of Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR). TDR is basically radar in which a voltage pulse is launched along a coaxial cable. A reflection of the voltage pulse occurs at every location where the cable is being deformed and each location is distinguished by the reflection travel time. For example, localized shear in a rock or soil mass will deform a cable grouted into a borehole and the TDR reflection magnitude is proportional to the magnitude of cable deformation. In one variation of this principle, a...

131. $rec.titulo - E. A. $ammel; E. Ingebritsen; R. H. Mariner
Results of recent geological and geophysical studies at Newberry Volcano have been incorporated into conceptual and numerical models of a magma-based hydrothermal system. Numerical simulations begin with emplacement of a small magma body, the presumed source of silicic eruptions at Newberry that began about 10,000 B.P., into a thermal regime representing 100,000 years of cooling of a large underlying intrusion. Simulated flow patterns and thermal histories for three sets of hypothetical permeability values are compatible with data from four geothermal drill holes on the volcano. Meteoric recharge cools the caldera-fill deposits, but thermal water moving up a central conduit representing...

132. GROUTING DURING THE DRIVING OF DRIFTS AND TUNNELS ABSTRACT - Yuriy N. Spychak
This paper presents case histories of grouting water-bearing fractured rock during driving of drifts in coal mines in Ukraine and the elimination of sudden inrush of water from large faulted zones in long Pin Lin Tunnel in Taiwan. In order to provide safe excavation of drifts and tunnels through water-bearing faulted zones and fractured rock the

133. Numerical solution of Bloch’s equation for neutron spin precession - P. A. Seeger A; L. L. Daemen B
The increasing importance of polarization in neutron scattering instrumentation for condensed matter research means that Monte Carlo design tools must be able to track neutron spin during neutron transport. In particular, we must be able to solve Bloch’s precession equation for arbitrary magnetic induction configurations, including timedependence. Since Monte Carlo simulations require averaging a large number of neutron histories, the computational procedure must be fast, as well as accurate and precise. A suitable algorithm is presented here, in the context of the Neutron Instrument Simulation Package (NISP), a Monte Carlo package developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory for neutron scattering...

134. CASE HISTORIES OF LIGHT CURING ADHESIVES IN ELECTRONICS MANUFACTURING by - Peter Swanson; Intertronics England
Light radiation cure adhesives, coatings and encapsulants are being used in the electronics manufacturing industry with increasing frequency because their properties and process advantages are a good fit for the manufacturing requirements which are demanded by current industry drivers, such as miniaturisation, environmental and health & safety demands, manufacturing yield improvement and total product cost. Light curing adhesive systems in the electronics manufacturing industry have found applications in strain relief, wire and parts tacking, coil terminating, tamper-proofing, structural bonding, temporary masking, potting, encapsulation, glob topping, conformal coating, and surface mount component attachment. This paper describes three case histories where photo...

135. Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences “Storms of crustal stress ” and AE earthquake precursors - G. P. Gregori; M. Poscolieri; G. Paparo; S. De Simone; C. Rafanelli; G. Ventrice
Abstract. Acoustic emission (AE) displays violent paroxysms preceding strong earthquakes, observed within some large area (several hundred kilometres wide) around the epicentre. We call them “storms of crustal stress ” or, briefly “crustal storms”. A few case histories are discussed, all dealing with the Italian peninsula, and with the different behaviour shown by the AE records in the Cephalonia island (Greece), which is characterized by a different tectonic setting. AE is an effective tool for diagnosing the state of some wide slab of the Earth’s crust, and for monitoring its evolution, by means of AE of different frequencies. The same...

136. IMPACT OF GEOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS ON GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING - J. David Rogers; Ronaldo Luna
Over the last four decades Geographical Information Systems (GIS) have emerged as the predominant medium for graphic representation of geospatial data, including geotechnical, geologic and hydrologic information routinely used by geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineers. GIS allow unlimited forms of spatial data to be co-mingled, weighted and sorted with any number of physical or environmental factors. These data can also be combined with weighted political and aesthetic values to create hybrid graphic products capable of swaying public perceptions and decision making. The downside of some GIS products is that their apparent efficacy and crispness can also be deceptive, if data of...

140. Aproximación teórica de los valores que subyacen en la historia de enfermería en Venezuela hasta el siglo XXI - Bolívar De Muñoz, M.E.; Escobar, Digna; Ramírez, Omaira
The Infirmary has received along the evolution of the humanity and of the periods of the different philosophical currents, components that they have influenced in his Ethos. The Ethos understood as the behaviors that characterize a profession, in this respect, to infirmary and also to a culture, since the same one includes tradition, common experiences, as well as the hierarchy of values of the persons who exercise the profession. It is a question of a documentary investigation realized across the search of information in records, analysis, interpretation of the documents, books, publications, interviews, by means of which it was achieved to identify, to describe and to analyze the...
