North Vancouver, Canada

Capilano University is an undergraduate-focused, public, coeducational, teaching-intensive university located in the District of North Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. It is enabled by the University Act, enrolling its first students in 1968. The school was established by local school boards and residents of the North Shore and Howe Sound on the need for a public institution serving the local communities. Initial enrollment was 784 students in 1968, and as of 2009, student enrollment has grown to 7,500 students. Under the direction of President Greg Lee, Capilano was redesignated from a community college to a university in 2008. Capilano's academic offerings include liberal arts, professional, and career programs, leading to certificates, diplomas, and degrees at the primarily undergraduate level.The university has two regional campuses located in the British Columbian cities of Squamish and Sechelt. Capilano serves the North Shore, Howe Sound, and Sunshine Coast communities, a region spanning from Metro Vancouver to Whistler.Capilano's sports teams are nicknamed the Blues, and periwinkle blue is the official school colour. The Blues have won numerous national titles in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association, and even more provincial titles in the British Columbia Colleges Athletic Association. Wikipedia.

Influenza A remains a significant public health challenge because of the emergence of antigenically shifted or highly virulent strains. Antiviral resistance to available drugs such as adamantanes or neuraminidase inhibitors has appeared rapidly, creating a need for new antiviral targets and new drugs for influenza virus infections. Using forward chemical genetics, we have identified influenza A nucleoprotein (NP) as a druggable target and found a small-molecule compound, nucleozin, that triggers the aggregation of NP and inhibits its nuclear accumulation. Nucleozin impeded influenza A virus replication in vitro with a nanomolar median effective concentration (EC 50) and protected mice challenged with lethal doses of avian influenza A H5N1. Our results demonstrate that viral NP is a valid target for the development of small-molecule therapies. © 2010 Nature America, Inc. All rights reserved.

Study design:One-week retest methodological study.Objectives:To assess the reliability and validity of the wheelchair outcome measure (WhOM) in a sample of individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI).Setting:Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.Methods:The WhOM measures the impact of wheelchair interventions on a user's self-selected participation outcomes. The WhOM was administered to 50 participants on two occasions by the same rater, 1 week apart, to assess test-retest reliability. To determine inter-rater reliability, the WhOM was administered a third time approximately 72 h later by a different rater. Validity was evaluated by correlating scores from the WhOM with scores from the Assessment of Life Habits (LIFE-H).Results:The test-retest intraclass correlation coefficients (ICC 2, 2) for the WhOM satisfaction (Sat) and WhOM importance (Impt) × Sat scores were 0.83 (95% confidence interval (CI), 0.72-0.90) and 0.88 (95% CI, 0.79-0.93), respectively. The inter-rater ICC for the WhOM Sat and WhOM Impt × Sat scores were 0.91 (95% CI, 0.85-0.95) and 0.90 (95% CI, 0.83-0.94), respectively. As hypothesized, most scores on the WhOM were fair to moderate (r=0.3-0.5) and positively correlated with scores on the LIFE-H.Conclusion:The WhOM is a new outcome measure that demonstrates good reliability and validity among individuals with SCI. It is designed to assist wheelchair users identify and evaluate the impact of wheelchair interventions on participation level outcomes. The WhOM may be applicable for clinical-or research-oriented purposes. © 2011 International Spinal Cord Society. All rights reserved.

The equidistribution of many crossing and nesting statistics exists in several combinatorial objects like matchings, set partitions, permutations, and embedded labelled graphs. The involutions switching nesting and crossing numbers for set partitions given by Krattenthaler, also by Chen, Deng, Du, Stanley, and Yan, and for permutations given by Burrill, Mishna, and Post involved passing through tableau-like objects. Recently, Chen and Guo for matchings, and Marberg for set partitions extended the result to coloured arc annotated diagrams. We prove that symmetric joint distribution continues to hold for arc-coloured permutations. As in Marberg's recent work, but through a different interpretation, we also conclude that the ordinary generating functions for all j-noncrossing, k-nonnesting, r-coloured permutations according to size n are rational functions. We use the interpretation to automate the generation of these rational series for both noncrossing and nonnesting coloured set partitions and permutations. © 2013 Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DMTCS).

Introductory Java programming courses usually start out using text output. This is not very motivating to students as they are more used to modern graphical output. The challenge with teaching GUI programming is that the complexity of modern GUI libraries is often overwhelming to students at this level. Using the Env3D library, students can create fully-interactive 3D environments easily while learning how to program in Java. With each additional programming concept, students can create increasingly-sophisticated videogames. This cycle of learning and reward is a great motivator and result in better learning and better retention of knowledge. © 2010 ACM.

For tens of centuries, plants have been highly valued and regularly used as medicine amongst the masses. Insomnia, a loss of sleep, is mostly treated by synthetic sleeping tablets these days. However, questions have been raised about the safety of prolonged use of artificial sedatives due to their deleterious side effects such as physical dependence. In recent years, there has been an increasing propensity to preclude insomnia by herbal medicines throughout the world. Many herbs have a lengthy background in terms of insomnia treatment in Iran. This paper gives an account of previously published research on sedative and hypnotic effects of medicinal herbs used for treatment of insomnia in Iranian traditional medicine.

Academics frequently serve as expert witnesses in legal cases, yet their role as transmitters of social scientific knowledge remains under-examined. The present study analyzes the deployment of social science within British Columbia's polygamy reference trial where research is used to support the assertion that polygamy is inherently harmful to society. Within the trial record and the written decision, the protection of monogamy as an institution is performed in part through the marginalization of qualitative methodology and the concurrent privileging of quantitative studies that purportedly demonstrate widespread social harms associated with the practice of polygyny. © 2014 Canadian Sociological Association.

Symmetric joint distribution between crossings and nestings was established in several combinatorial objects. Recently, Marberg extended Chen and Guo's result on coloured matchings to coloured set partitions following a multi-dimensional generalization of the bijection and enumerative methods from Chen, Deng, Du, Stanley, and Yan. We complete the study for arc-coloured permutations by establishing symmetric joint distribution for crossings and nestings and by showing that the ordinary generating functions for j-noncrossing, k-nonnesting, r-coloured permutations according to size n are rational functions. Finally, we automate the generation of these rational functions and analyse the first 70 series. © 2015 Australian National University. All rights reserved.
