“The Way, the Truth, and the Life: The Way”: a how-to on navigating a secular culture utilizing biblical principles. “The Way, the Truth, and the Life: The Way” is the creation of published author, Rev. Charles Thomas Comella Sr., a veteran, John Carroll University alum, and high-ranking businessman who later attended New Brunswick Theological Seminary and received his master of divinity and master of theology. Noting how “the earliest Christian church was called The Way,” Rev. Comella says this was “because Jesus Christ’s advent, life, death, and resurrection did not focus upon theology,” but instead his “teachings and life were all focused upon a way of life.” Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Rev. Charles Thomas Comella Sr.’s new book seeks to demonstrate how Christians can find answers for their own lives by simply looking to Jesus’s example. Rev. Comella offers biblical solutions for everyday struggles by focusing on a relationship with God and how it impacts relationships with others. View a synopsis of “The Way, the Truth, and the Life: The Way” on YouTube. Consumers can purchase “The Way, the Truth, and the Life: The Way” at traditional brick & mortar bookstores, or online at Amazon.com, Apple iTunes store, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.

The carrier concentration of chemically synthesized Biebased nanocrystals (NCs) is for the first time reported to be adjusted by forming ternary BibeNCs (= 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, 0.50, and 1.50) through partial substitution of Bi with Sb. Carrier concentrations of ternary BibeNCs were successfully adjusted by a factor of more than 10 controlled by the stoichiometric partial Sb/Bi substitution level. The power factors of the stoichiometric ternary BibeNCs improved three times compared to the parent Biedue to the carrier concentration adjustment. © 2010 American Chemical Society.

The proposed effort will develop a solid-state LED replacement lamp for rocket engine test stand lighting and more general hazardous-location lighting. The LED lighting will produce a smoother lighting spectrum compared to the existing arc lamp sources which will improve the visual accuracy and quality of high-speed engine photography. The LED lighting will also last significantly longer than arc lamps which require frequent replacement in hazardous-gas environment. A specialized array of optical collectors will redirect the light more effectively to the needed test areas using principles on non-imaging optics. The result will be improved lighting for engine diagnostics, lower operating costs for the test stand, much longer lamp life and a safer environment by reducing or eliminating lighting maintenance operations in an explosive environment. The housing will also be shock, vibration and heat resistant to be able to withstand the proximate effects of live-fire rocket engine testing. The electronic controls for the lighting will be sited remotely from the lamp head to be consistent with the existing facility and for thermal and reliability considerations. Additionally, a hazardous-location LED lighting device for general illumination which is not for high-speed engine diagnostics will also be developed and tested.

Friendships are an integral part of the human experience. Yet, dementia often takes a toll on social relationships, and many friends withdraw. This research, however, focuses on friendships that remain, despite a diagnosis of dementia. It examines the quality of the friendships of people with dementia and long-term friendships. Data were collected through focus group interviews with people with early stage dementia and their care partners, and through interviews with designated friends. The findings show that people with dementia do have friends that remain and they have a wide variety of friendships, from those based on one shared activity to those of multifaceted deep relationships. The long-term friendships, which last across the various stages of dementia, appear to fall into two types: one, where the person with dementia has become more like a family member than a friend (suffusion); and the other where the diagnosis of dementia was the impetus for the relationship to become closer (progressive friendship).

This paper presents an assessment designed to measure computational thinking skills of fourth grade students. The students in two public schools were given a set of Scratch programming challenges. The SOLO taxonomy was used to classify student programming responses based on the degree of understanding of the problem structure. The majority of fourth grade students from one school demonstrated the ability to synchronize the costume and motion of a single character sprite, as well as synchronize a basic conversation between multiple sprites. However, they struggled to integrate motion and costume changes into a multi-sprite conversation. The majority of fourth grade students from the second school, where reading and math comprehension scores fall below the state minimum requirements for proficiency, were unable to demonstrate a basic understanding of the programming tasks. The results suggest that fourth grade students who read at grade level are capable of understanding the relationships between multiple concerns within a single script, along with synchronizing a single concern across multiple scripts, but are challenged when synchronizing multiple concerns across multiple scripts.

Contemporary Japan is known both for its high tech culture and its rapidly aging population, with 22 % of people currently 65 years and older. Yet there has been little attention to the material culture of the elderly. This paper explores the way aging bodies, official ideology, and consumption of what are called "assistive devices" and "life technologies" come together in the experience of frail old people who depend not only on human caregivers but on "things" such as walkers, kidney dialysis machines, and electric massage chairs. It begins to consider the questions: What technology to aid failing bodies is available, and to whom? How does the advocacy of independence create new forms of consumption? How do "things" mediate ideological change regarding elder care and help to create new understandings of self and one's relation to others? Data come from interviews conducted in 2003-2007 as part of a study of elder care in Japan under the public long term care insurance system that began in 2000. These interviews point both to acceptance of the technology as a way to avoid over-dependence on caregivers, and to resistance to the limitations of aging and to its 21st century definition by the state. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.
