WASHINGTON, DC, February 22, 2017-- John F. Andrews, OBE, has been included in Marquis volumes such as Who's Who in America since 1984, when he was completing a decade as Director of Academic Programs at the Folger Shakespeare Library on Capitol Hill. Since then he has held positions at the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Office of Postsecondary Education at the U.S. Department of Education, and the Nation's Capital Branch of the English-Speaking Union. He now focuses his efforts primarily on The Shakespeare Guild, a global not-for-profit organization that Dr. Andrews founded in 1987. The Guild is best known for the Gielgud Award for Excellence in the Dramatic Arts, which was inaugurated in 1994, and has been presented in such settings as the Folger Shakespeare Library and the British Embassy in Washington, the Barrymore Theatre, Lincoln Center, and the National Arts Club in New York, and Middle Temple Hall and the Guildhall in London. Recipients have included F. Murray Abraham, Dame Eileen Atkins, Sir Kenneth Branagh, Zoe Caldwell, Dame Judi Dench, Sir Derek Jacobi, Michael Kahn, Kevin Kline, Sir Ian McKellen, Christopher Plummer, Lynn Redgrave, Vanessa Redgrave, Sir Donald Sinden, and Sir Patrick Stewart. Another signature Guild offering is its popular Speaking of Shakespeare series, which commenced at the National Press Club in 1998 and has been presented in a variety of settings from New York to Santa Fe over the last two decades.A native of Carlsbad, New Mexico, Dr. Andrews holds degrees from Princeton (A.B. 1965), Harvard (M.A.T. 1966), and Vanderbilt (Ph.D. 1971) and has taught in such institutions as the University of Tennessee - Nashville, Florida State University, the Catholic University of America, Georgetown University, and George Washington University. He has lectured in a variety of settings, among them the Smithsonian Institution, the Shakespeare Institute, the University of Cambridge, the QE2, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Egypt, and Meisei University in Japan.From 1974 to 1985 he edited Shakespeare Quarterly and oversaw a Folger publication program that produced such classics as Shakespeare on the American Stage (Folger Books), Three British Revolutions: 1641, 1688, 1776 (Princeton), and Shakespeare: The Globe and the World (Oxford). He went on to produce two 3-volume Scribners reference sets on the playwright's world, work, and influence and two annotated editions of the poet's plays (a 19-volume clothbound collection, The Guild Shakespeare, for Doubleday, and a 16-volume paperback sequel, The Everyman Shakespeare, for Orion). His articles have appeared in volumes published by Dell and other imprints, as well as in such periodicals as The American Scholar, The Atlantic, The New York Times, and the Washington Post. A frequent guest on radio and television programs, Dr. Andrews served for several years (1979-85) as chair of a National Advisory Panel that oversaw the development of educational materials for the BBC/Time-Life Television series "The Shakespeare Plays." He went on to serve as a key advisor for "The Shakespeare Hour," a PBS sequel that aired in the spring of 1986. He has appeared on several NPR shows (All Things Considered, Morning Edition, and Sunday Weekend Edition), as well as on PBS's MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour and CBS's Nightwatch with Charlie Rose. He has been written about or quoted in Time, U.S. News and World Report, the Christian Science Monitor, and a number of other publications. In July of 2000, during a ceremony at the British Embassy in Washington, he was inducted, as an Honorary Officer, into the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

New molecule based magnetic materials [CrCyclam(CC-MeEDT-TTF) 2](TCNQ)3 ([1](TCNQ)3, Cyclam = 1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane, MeEDT-TTF = 5-methyl-4′,5′- ethylenedithiotetrathiafulvalene, TCNQ = 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) and [1][Cr(NCS)4Phen]2(acetone)2(toluene) (Phen = 1,10-phenanthroline) were prepared by the electrochemical oxidation of [1](CF3SO3). Tetrathiafulvalene(TTF)-type ligands and a neutral TCNQ molecule are stacked and form a charge-transfer complex in the crystal of [1](TCNQ)3, where a weak ferromagnetic interaction was observed between Cr3+ and (TCNQ)2-. The crystal structure of [1][Cr(NCS)4Phen]2(acetone) 2(toluene) was characterized by ferrimagnetic chain of Cr 3+ Cyclam units (S = 3/2) and (TTF)2+ ligand dimers (S = 1/2), while each (TTF)2+ dimer is sandwiched between two [Cr(NCS)4Phen]- anions (S = 3/2). The crystal shows ferrimagnetic transition at 4.8 K. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

In this paper, Late Miocene blueschist and eclogite belts, including the world's youngest blueschist belt in Timor-Tanimbar Island chain, eastern Indonesia, and the world's youngest coesite-bearing eclogite, Papua New Guinea, together with selected Cenozoic high-pressure and ultrahigh-pressure metamorphic rocks are reviewed. From a synthesis of the geology, metamorphism and chronology of these rocks, the formation and exhumation process are evaluated and the significance on tectonics at convergent plate boundaries is discussed. © 2010 International Association for Gondwana Research.

The radion is expected to be the first signal of the Randall-Sundrum (RS) model. We explore the possibility of finding it in the ongoing Higgs searches at the LHC. The little RS model (LRS), which has a fundamental scale at ~10 3 TeV, is excluded over wide ranges of the radion mass from the latest WW and γγ data by ATLAS and CMS. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

The dilaton, a pseudo-Nambu-Goldstone boson appearing in spontaneous scale symmetry breaking at a TeV scale f, may be found in Higgs boson searches. The dilaton couples to standard model fermions and weak bosons with the same structure as the Higgs boson except for the overall strength. Additionally, the dilaton couples to a Higgs boson pair. The couplings of the dilaton to a gluon pair and a photon pair, appearing at loop level, are largely enhanced compared to the corresponding Higgs couplings. We present regions of the mass and vacuum expectation value (VEV) of the dilaton allowed by WW, ZZ, and γγ limits from the LHC at 7TeV with 1.0-2.3fb -1 integrated luminosity. A scale of f less than 1TeV is nearly excluded. We discuss how the dilaton χ can be distinguished from the Higgs boson h0 by observation of the decays χ→γγ and χ→h0h0→(WW)(WW). © 2012 American Physical Society.

Critical Reviews in Environmental Science and Technology | Year: 2012

The authors review presently available or potential biological methods to remove and detoxify toxic heavy metals and metalloids from polluted water and sediments (i.e., biosorption, bioaccumulation, oxidation/reduction, leaching, precipitation, volatilization, degradation, and phytoremediation). In addition, they describe the options for the recovery of metals sequestered by biosorbents (use of appropriate desorbing agents) and microbial and plant biomass (leaching by means of chemical reagents or biological processes, and thermal treatment in controlled systems).

Stoponium, a bound state of the top squark and its antiparticle in a supersymmetric model, may be found in the ongoing Higgs searches at the LHC. Its WW and ZZ detection ratios relative to the standard model Higgs boson can be more than unity from the WW * threshold to the two Higgs threshold. The channel is equally promising. Some regions of the stoponium mass below 150°GeV are already being probed by the ATLAS and CMS experiments. © 2012 American Physical Society.

We constrain the masses of scalar-tops (stop) by analyzing the new precision Tevatron measurement of the W-boson mass and the LHC/Tevatron indications of a Higgs boson of mass 125.5±1 GeV. Our study adopts Natural SUSY with low fine-tuning, which has multi-TeV first- and second-generation squarks and a light Higgsino mixing parameter μ=150 GeV. An effective Lagrangian calculation is made of mh to 3 loops using the H3m program with weak scale SUSY parameters obtained from RGE evolution from the GUT scale in the Natural SUSY scenario. The SUSY radiative corrections to the Higgs mass imply maximal off-diagonal elements of the stop mass matrix and a mass splitting of the two stops larger than 400 GeV. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

By using the LHC and Tevatron measurements of the cross sections to various decay channels relative to the standard model Higgs boson, the total width of the putative 125 GeV Higgs boson is determined as 6.1-2.9+7.7MeV. We describe a way to estimate the branching fraction for the Higgs-boson decay to dark matter. We also discuss a no-go theorem for the γγ signal of the Higgs boson at the LHC. © 2012 American Physical Society.

Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry | Year: 2012

In this study, we developed the technique of Li + ion-attachment mass spectrometry (IAMS), a method that has shown promise in the fields of chemical analysis, plasma diagnostics, chemical process monitoring, and thermal analysis. The experimental setup is such that Li + ions get attached to chemical species (R) by means of intermolecular association reactions to produce (R + Li) + adduct ions, which are then transferred to a quadrupole mass spectrometer. Recently, an IAMS system became available commercially in a complete form from the Canon Anelva Corp. IAMS has several notable features. It provides only molecular ions, and it permits direct determination of unstable, intermediary, and/or reactive species. Also, it is highly sensitive because it involves ion-molecule reactions. With regard to its applications for thermal analysis, one of its greatest advantages is that it can be used to directly analyze gaseous compounds because it provides mass spectra only of the molecular ions formed by Li + ion attachment to any chemical species introduced into the spectrometer, including free radicals. Coupled with evolved gas analysis, IAMS works well for the analysis of nonvolatile, untreated, and complex samples because the simplicity of the ion-attachment spectrum permits the analysis of mixtures electron-impact spectra of which are difficult to interpret. © 2012 Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.
