St. Francis College, often referred to as St. Francis or SFC, is a private, coeducational college located in Brooklyn Heights, New York, in the United States. The campus comprises five interconnected buildings, occupying half of a city block in Downtown Brooklyn. It was founded in 1859 by friars of the Order of Servant Franciscans, a Franciscan order, as the St. Francis Academy and was the first private school in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn. St. Francis College began as a parochial all-boys academy in the City of Brooklyn and has transformed into a small liberal arts college that has 19 academic departments which offer 72 majors and minors.St. Francis College is a predominantly undergraduate institution, yet does have graduate programs in accounting, project management and psychology. St. Francis has been ranked nationally and regionally by Forbes magazine, Washington Monthly, Money magazine and U.S. News and World Report as one of the top baccalaureate colleges. St. Francis is set in an urban environment and is considered a commuter college. As of 2014, there are 2,764 undergraduates and 55 graduates . The student to faculty ratio is 18:1 and 46.8% of classes have 20 or fewer students. The 2,900 students that attend St. Francis College come from over 80 countries. St. Francis College has been ranked by the New York Times and Forbes as one of the more diverse colleges in the United States.SFC has 19 athletic teams that compete in Division I of the NCAA and are known as the Terriers and Lady Terriers for the men's and women's teams, respectively. SFC's teams participate in the Northeast Conference, with the exception of the men's and women's water polo teams which compete in the CWPA and the MAAC, respectively. Wikipedia.

The ability of an experimentally experienced female California sea lion to form transitive relations across sensory modalities was tested using a matching-to-sample procedure. The subject was trained by trial-and-error, using differential reinforcement, to relate an acoustic sample stimulus to one member from each of two previously established visual classes. Once the two auditory-visual relations were formed, she was tested to determine whether untrained transitive relations would emerge between each of the acoustic stimuli and the remaining stimuli of each 10-member visual class. During testing, the sea lion demonstrated immediate transfer by responding correctly on 89 % of the 18 novel transfer trials compared to 88 % on familiar baseline trials. We then repeated this training and transfer procedure twice more with new auditory-visual pairings with similar positive results. Finally, the six explicitly trained auditory-visual relations and the 56 derived auditory-visual relations were intermixed in a single session, and the subject's performance remained stable at high levels. This sea lion's transfer performance indicates that a nonhuman animal is capable of forming new associations through cross-modal transitivity. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Although there is considerable research on concurrent training, none has integrated flexible nonlinear periodization and maximal-effort cycling in the same design. The purpose of this investigation was to test outcome measures of strength and power using a pretest-posttest randomized groups design. A strength and endurance (SE) group was compared with a strength, endurance, and maximal-effort cycling (SEC) group. Both groups used a flexible nonlinear periodization design. Thirteen male and 7 female students (mean ± SD: age, 22.5 ± 4.1 years; height, 173.5 ± 12.4 cm; weight, 79.4 ± 20.2 kg; strength training experience, 2.4 ± 2.2 years) participated in this study. Groups were not matched for age, height, weight, strength training experience, or sex, but were randomly assigned to an SE (n = 10) or SEC (n = 10) group. All training was completed within 45 minutes, twice per week (Monday and Wednesday), over 12 consecutive weeks. Both groups were assigned 6.75 total hours of aerobic conditioning, and 13.5 hours of free weight and machine exercises totaling 3,188 repetitions ranging from 5 to 20 repetition maximums. The SEC group performed 2 cycling intervals per workout ranging from 10 to 45 seconds. Pretest and posttest measures included chest press and standing broad jump. Analysis of variance showed that there were no significant differences between the SE and SEC groups on measures of chest press or standing broad jump performance (p, not significant). Paired sample t-tests (p = 0.05) showed significant improvement in strength and power in all groups (pretest to posttest), except for SE jump performance (p, not significant). In conclusion, adding maximal-effort cycling does not provide additional strength or power benefits to a concurrent flexible nonlinear training program. However, an exercise professional can take confidence that a concurrent flexible nonlinear training program can increase strength and power in healthy individuals. © 2013 National Strength and Conditioning Association.

Glutathione (GSH) plays numerous critical protective roles in the erythrocyte and GSH turnover is likely an important factor in regulating susceptibility to oxidative stress and toxins. Efflux of glutathione disulfide (GSSG) from erythrocytes is an important component in the regulation of GSH levels; however, little is known of the mechanisms involved. We hypothesize that multidrug resistance associated protein 1 (MRP1) is responsible, in part, for GSSG transport from erythrocytes. To test this, we determined the levels of MRP1 protein in erythrocyte membranes from healthy adults and compared them with intracellular levels of GSH. MRP1 levels varied substantially from person to person and were inversely correlated with levels of GSH (r =-0.39, P < 0.05). In contrast, activity levels of glutamyl cysteine ligase, the rate limiting GSH biosynthetic enzyme, were unrelated to GSH levels. To directly determine the role of MRP1 in GSSG transport, in vitro studies were conducted examining the effects of MRP1 inhibitors MK571 and verapamil on GSSG efflux. Both compounds resulted in significant but not complete inhibition (20-53%) of GSSG efflux from cells. Overall, these findings support a role for MPR1 in the regulation of erythrocyte GSH levels through the transport and elimination of GSSG from cells. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.

NEW YORK, NY, November 02, 2016-- From its origins in academic discourse in the 1970s to our collective imagination today, the concept of "rape culture" has resonated in a variety of spheres, including television, gaming, comic book culture, and college campuses. Beyond Blurred Lines: Rape Culture in Popular Media , traces ways that sexual violence is collectively processed, mediated, negotiated, and contested by exploring public reactions to high-profile incidents and rape narratives in popular culture.The concept of rape culture was initially embraced in popular media - mass media, social media, and popular culture - and contributed to a social understanding of sexual violence that mirrored feminist concerns about the persistence of rape myths and victim-blaming. However, it was later challenged by skeptics who framed the concept as a moral panic. Nickie D. Phillips documents how the conversation shifted from substantiating claims of a rape culture toward growing scrutiny of the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses. This, in turn, renewed attention toward false allegations, and away from how college enforcement policies fail victims to how they endanger accused young men.Ultimately, she successfully lends insight into how the debates around rape culture, including microaggressions, gendered harassment and so-called political correctness, inform our collective imaginations and shape our attitudes toward criminal justice and policy responses to sexual violence."This fascinating and erudite book traces the genealogy and resurgence of 'rape culture' as a popular but highly controversial concept in the collective imagination. Phillips expertly and impartially investigates opposing debates on issues such as "slut-shaming", statistics, political correctness, trigger warnings, censorship and false allegations."-- Nicola Henry, Phd, Senior Lecturer, La Trobe University, Australia"A must read for feminist and cultural scholars who seek to understand how 'rape culture' has shifted from academic to popular discourse and how the concept has come to occupy part of a national, if not global, debate about sexual violence against women."--Anastasia Powell, Phd, Senior Research Fellow, Justice and Legal Studies, RMIT University Melbourne, AustraliaRelease date: November 16, 2016 | ISBN-10: 1442246278; ISBN-13: 978-1442246270is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology & Criminal Justice at St. Francis College in Brooklyn, NY and director of the college's Center for Crime & Popular Culture .
