  1. Music service teachers' life histories in the United Kingdom with implications for practice

    Baker, D
    Music service teachers' biographies and occupational stages are discussed in this article. The life histories of 28 instrumental and vocal teachers, aged between 22 and 60 years, are explored. These individuals work for a Local Education Authority music service in the United Kingdom. Their occupation entails travelling between various state primary and secondary schools to provide specialist instrumental and vocal tuition. Respondents participated in the inquiry between October 2002 and March 2004. In the context of this study, life histories are purposefully co-constructed narratives without the commitment to an objective past. Instead, the foci are storytellers' perspectives. The analytic induction...

  2. Life histories from a music service: The past in inductees' present

    Baker, DC
    This article discusses inductee music service teachers (to 25 years of age). It explores how their lives, as perceived, shape current identities in teaching and result in several career problems. Respondents were drawn from a comprehensive life history study of 28 Local Education Authority employees. Of this larger cohort, four were age 25 years and below, and the remaining 24 teachers made retrospective comments. Data were collected and analysed between October 2002 and March 2004. Principal findings suggest that schooling failed to address these educators' needs as musical learners; key childhood experiences were external of schools. This often resulted in...

  4. Agreed syllabi and un-agreed values: Religious education and missed opportunities for fostering social cohesion

    Panjwani, F
    Religious education (RE) has often found itself at the centre of debates about education's role in promoting social cohesion in contemporary multi-religious societies. The paper considers RE's relationship to religious plurality within the broader context of politics of curriculum and debates on pluralism. Drawing upon the recent works on the history of religion and using the teaching of the histories and cultures of Muslims in RE as a case study, it argues that RE has yet to fulfill its potential in this regard. The paper examines reasons for this and recommends alternative approaches to content which may help RE rise...

  5. Menopause, reproductive life, hormone replacement therapy and bone phenotype at age 60-64: a British birth cohort.

    Kuh, D; Muthuri, S; Cooper, R; Moore, A; MacKinnon, K; Cooper, C; Adams, JE; Hardy, R; Ward, KA
    CONTEXT: Previous studies of menopausal age and length of reproductive life on bone are limited by retrospective reproductive histories, being cross sectional, or lacking gold standard bone technologies, or information on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) or surgical treatment. OBJECTIVE: To investigate age at menopause, length of reproductive life and HRT use in relation to volumetric and areal bone mineral density (vBMD, aBMD), bone size and strength in women aged 60-64. DESIGN: A birth cohort study followed for 64 years with prospective measures of age at menarche and menopause and monthly HRT histories. SETTING: England, Scotland, Wales Participants: 848 women with...

  8. PERSPECTIVES


    are now also known to be highly inclined ( 2). Some are even retrograde, orbiting in a direction counter to the spin of their host star, implying complex formation and dynamical histories ( 13). What about chemical composition? Through careful modeling of their data, Bailes et al. conclude that the companion of PSR J1719−1438 has a mean density at least 20 times or so higher than Jupiter’s, and that it is most likely made of elements heavier than helium. One possibility is carbon, which would be expected if the original companion was a moderately massive white dwarf ( 14). Carbon...

  9. Is painless synovitis different from painful synovitis? A controlled, ultrasound, radiographic, clinical trial

    painless and painful chronic synovitis in patients with established rheumatoid arthritis. METHODS: This cross-sectional study involved 60 patients with rheumatoid arthritis and synovitis in the metacarpophalangeal joints; 30 of the patients did not experience pain, and 30 had experienced pain for at least 6 months prior to the study. The radiocarpal, distal radioulnar, and metacarpophalangeal joints were evaluated using the ultrasound gray scale, power Doppler, and radiography. Past and present clinical and laboratory findings were also evaluated. RESULTS: There were no statistically significant differences between the groups for most of the outcomes. The group with pain scored worse on the...

  12. Emplacing the research encounter: exploring farm life histories. Qual Inq

    Mark Riley
    The article is concerned with the placing of, and making place central to, the research interview. Drawing on research on changing agricultural practices in the Peak District, the United Kingdom, the article explores how interviewing “in place,” and making place the central theme of discussion, can have both practical and theoretical advantages for the research encounter. Emplacing the encounter means that often marginalized voices can be brought into a more coconstructed and democratic narrative, while the farm and its associated micropolitics can provide a medium through which new, and often unforeseen, trajectories and narratives can develop. Moving outside, it is...

  13. SESSION V Criteria for Assessing Accomplishment of Poliomyelitis Control

    Public Health
    The goals of control of poliomyelitis include the control of paralytic poliomyelitis, of infection by polioviruses, and of the presence and spread of polioviruses in the environ-ment. Criteria for assessing control of paralytic poliomyelitis include required and special reporting, data from hospitals and clinics, and lameness surveys. Control of in-fection is evaluated by immunization histories, studies of vaccine quality and usage, and by serologic surveys for antibody prevalence. Environmental control is measured by lack of reported cases, lack of wild polioviruses in sewage, and the absence of poliovirus in the stools of healthy persons who have not received oral poliovirus...

  15. The American Academy of Neurology position statement on abuse and violence

    Elliott A. Schulman; Anna Depold Hohler
    Neurologists see patients with neurologic disabilities that render them susceptible to abuse or neglect. They also encounter patients with neurologic dysfunction that may be either directly or indirectly related to mal-treatment. In 2008, the American Medical Association (AMA) encouraged physicians to “routinely in-quire about the family violence histories of their patients, as this knowledge is essential for effective di-agnosis and care.”1 Consensus-based guidelines for identification of intimate partner violence (IPV) have been adopted by numerous medical specialty organiza-tions.2–11 The US Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that women be screened and counseled for domestic abuse.12 PURPOSE OF THE...

  18. Narrowband Passive Sonar Tracking

    Kevin Brinkmann; Jörg Hurka
    Abstract: Passive sonar sensors are the main source of information for a submerged submarine. Modern sonar systems like ISUS 90 offer a number of acoustic antennas and combined signal processing for broadband and narrowband detection and analy-sis of target noise. While broadband detection is often used to obtain an overview of the targets surrounding the own ship, narrowband processing enables the detection of target characteristic frequency lines, often produced by vibrations of the propulsion systems on surface ships which are radiated into the water. Narrowband processing is therefore essential for target analysis and classification. Frequency line information can be used...

    Abstract. The present study aimed to identify the genetic mutations in two families affected with congenital cataracts. Detailed family histories and clinical data of the family members were recorded. The family members with affected phenotypes were recruited, and candidate gene sequencing was performed to determine the disease-causing mutation. Bioinformatics analysis was performed to predict the function of the mutant gene. Green fluorescent protein‑tagged human wild-type CRYAA and GJA8 were sub-cloned, and the mutants were generated by site-directed mutagenesis. A novel muta-tion, c.416T>C (p.L139P), in CRYAA and a known mutation, c.139G>A (p.D47N), in GJA8 were identified. These mutations co-segregated with all...

    Background: Arrival of inmigrants from malaria endemic areas has led to a emergence of cases of this parasitic dis-ease in Spain. The objective of this study was to analyse the high incidence rate of imported malaria in Fuenlabrada, a city in the south of Madrid, together with the frequent the lack of chemoprophylaxis, for the period between 2004 and 2014. Both pregnant women and HIV risk groups have been considered. Methods: Retrospective descriptive study of laboratory-confirmed malaria at the Fuenlabrada University Hospital, in Madrid, during a 10-year period (2004–2014). These data were obtained reviewing medical histories of the cases. Rel-evant...
