Aborsi Trimester Kedua dan Ketiga

Aborsi dengan Induksi
Kematian janin dipicu oleh injeksi obat ke jantung janin. Obat yang digunakan adalah digoxin atau potasium klorida. Serviks dilunakkan dengan obat-obatan dan laminaria. Persalinan diinduksi dan janin dilahirkan. Dalam beberapa kasus, metode induksi gagal atau tidak dapat digunakan. Oleh karena itu, prosedur ekstraksi digunakan untuk mengangkat potongan janin menggunakan forsep. C-section dapat dilakukan juga tetapi sangat jarang.
Risiko dan Pertimbangan untuk Aborsi yang Diinduksi
Seperti persalinan pada saat term (hamil 40 minggu), prosedur ini biasanya memakan waktu 10-24 jam di unit persalinan dan melahirkan di rumah sakit. Digoxin atau potasium klorida disuntikkan ...

Exploring The Vertical Charrette As An Alternative To Traditional Service-Learning, Stephanie Sickler, Amanda Gale Oct 2021

Exploring The Vertical Charrette As An Alternative To Traditional Service-Learning, Stephanie Sickler, Amanda Gale

Journal of Community Engagement and Scholarship

This paper highlights a collaborative, intercollegiate vertical design charrette that illuminates the potential of short-term service opportunities. Interior design students from two major universities collaborated with a community partner over a 4-hour design charrette to produce preliminary design solutions for an expansion of the partner’s residential community farm that houses adults with special needs. Student participants were at varying points in their college careers, and the vertical nature of the charrette experience facilitated extensive peer-to-peer learning. Little research to date has documented the potential of design charrettes as service opportunities. This experience challenges the notion of traditional service-learning as ...

This was achieved through the development of a framework from CPTED, on architectural strategies used to deter crime from thriving in ...


Power Of Cantilever Design In The Contemporary Architecture, Karen Hassan Beydoun, Jana Hussein, Ahmad Salame Sep 2021

Power Of Cantilever Design In The Contemporary Architecture, Karen Hassan Beydoun, Jana Hussein, Ahmad Salame

Architecture and Planning Journal (APJ)

Cantilever is a structural form that extends horizontally and is supported by one end and free on the other while the load is distributed equally, initiated by the use of bridges and balconies in the buildings. The power of Cantilevers with its different designs is spreading throughout the world via various perspectives since it increases the ability of design creativity and gives proper solutions. However, from that point forward, a research gap that has been found missing relating the structural challenges and how it affects the design and the decisions taken by the clients/ owners paying budgets on such type ...

Child Development Just Outside The Front Door: Neighbourhood Play Project, Hyahno Moser

International Journal of Playwork Practice

This project examines the nature of contemporary childhood with a focus on changing rates of play in Queensland’s urban neighbourhoods. The Neighbourhood Play Project is a pilot project funded by the Queensland Government Department of Sport & Recreation. The purpose of the project was to examine and record the prevalence of local children’s existing play networks in urban Queensland neighbourhoods and to quantify their influence on children's physical activity and outdoor play levels. The recorded decline of Queensland children’s activity levels and physical literacy over the last 30 years – and its direct negative correlation with children’s ...


How Have Adventure Playgrounds In The United Kingdom Adapted Post-March Lockdown In 2020?, Pete King Sep 2021

How Have Adventure Playgrounds In The United Kingdom Adapted Post-March Lockdown In 2020?, Pete King

International Journal of Playwork Practice

Adventure playgrounds have been a feature in the United Kingdom since the 1950s. Their growth and development was underpinned by ‘thinking together’, a concept in the Communities of Practice (CoP) approach. In March 2020, the United Kingdom (UK) went into lockdown. This study aimed to find out how adventure playgrounds responded to the Covid-19 situation when they reopened in July 2020. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken with 18 adventure playground staff from 14 adventure playgrounds. Thematic analysis of the data constructed themes and sub-themes within four main headings: preparation for opening; reduction; targeted service and play behaviour. The results showed how ...

Beirut Port’S Sparkle In Arabic Poetryومضة مرفأ بيروت في الشعر العربي, Samir Itani Aug 2021

Beirut Port’S Sparkle In Arabic Poetryومضة مرفأ بيروت في الشعر العربي, Samir Itani

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

The explosion that occurred at Beirut port on the 4th of August 2020 was not a transient event, but rather a dreadful disaster the Lebanese have faced. It echoed in Arabic poetry. Some depicted the disaster, some denounced it, and some depicted Beirut as a doomed city, so they lamented it. The odd thing about it is that most poets who wrote about the explosion developed short poems or poetic flashes. Their expressions came out as intense, quick, and denounced, and were therefore honest. However, the arguments presented in their poems were clashes between life and death. The results were ...

The Epic Of The Catastrophe And The Poetic Creativity Between Mahmoud Darwish And Murid El-Barghouthiمشهدية النكبة والابداع الشعريّ بين محمود درويش ومريد البرغوثي, Bashir Faraj

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: The Palestinian Nakba “calamity” became a symbol for poetic creativity after the disaster of occupying the land of Palestine and the subsequent successive setbacks. Especially in the hearts of its children the poets, those who became poets because of that bleeding wound, caused by separating the human from the place “land” and the place from the human

Disaster And Socio-Cultural Impact: Between Social Representations And Resiliencecatastrophe Et Impact Socio-Culturel: Entre Représentations Sociales Et Résilience, Abdelfettah N. Idrissi

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: We live in a constantly changing world, a multi-faceted world vacillating between joy and happiness on one side and sadness and desolation on the other. We have indeed witnessed, recently, much sadness and misfortune resulting from both human and natural disasters. Whether individual or collective, the risks are assessed having regard to our cultural determinism, taking into account values, standards and living conditions of individuals. Our purpose, which falls within the framework of the theory of social representations (Moscovici (1986)), would be to account for the impact of the disaster on the behavior of the individual and of society ...


Writing About Chernobyl In The Rush Of Differed Memory In "Voices From Chernobyl: The Oral History Of A Nuclear Disaster" By Svetlana Alexievitch"Écrire Sur Tchernobyl Dans L’Urgence De La Mémoire Différée, Dans « La Supplication, Tchernobyl, Chronique Du Monde Après L’Apocalypse » De Sveltana Alexievitch, Badia Mazboudi Aug 2021

Writing About Chernobyl In The Rush Of Differed Memory In "Voices From Chernobyl: The Oral History Of A Nuclear Disaster" By Svetlana Alexievitch"Écrire Sur Tchernobyl Dans L’Urgence De La Mémoire Différée, Dans « La Supplication, Tchernobyl, Chronique Du Monde Après L’Apocalypse » De Sveltana Alexievitch, Badia Mazboudi

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: On April 26, 1986, the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine, exploded, causing what is considered as “the biggest technological catastrophy of the 20th century” (Svetlana Alexievitch, 1997, p. 7), four years prior to the fall of the Soviet Union, and ten years before Svetlana Alexievitch releases “Voices from Chernobyl: The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster”. Even though many books, movies and photographs addressed the disaster, the belarusian author and journalist chose to peer into the lives of people:” I was interested in sensations, feelings of individuals who touched the unknown. The mystery” (S, 30) rather than studying ...

Writing Therapy In The Novel "Beyrouth 2020" By Cherif Majdalanil’Ecriture Therapeutique Dans Le Roman « Beyrouth 2020 » De Cherif Majdalani, Nadia Iskandarani

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: The writing, as terrible as it is, is nevertheless reassuring, because it puts the difficult moments in image, in word; it connects us to past experiences, to men and women who went through them, going through moments of hardship, but also of consolation. The goal of literature writing is not just the disaster itself, but, it is also about taking care of oneself and others and to express how society has experienced this disaster and how to remedy it. Even more, the catastrophe sometimes goes beyond the framework of the country to reach the extent of the whole world ...


The Near And Distant Discourse Towards Disasterle Discours Proche Et Lointain Envers La Catastrophe, Mohammed Alkhattib Aug 2021

The Near And Distant Discourse Towards Disasterle Discours Proche Et Lointain Envers La Catastrophe, Mohammed Alkhattib

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: When it comes to talk about a disaster, it is not easy to maintain the objectivity and neutrality towards the event. Emotions can be very explicit, especially when the speaker is “related” to the people affected. “Related” with means kinship does not only mean being a member of one's family, but also of the same region, the same country, or even the same ethnic group. This research aims making a linguistic and discursive comparison between the discourse of two different cultures (Arab and Western) towards the catastrophe. We will take as an example, the disaster of the Jordanian ...

From Catastrophe To Catharsis: The Explosion Of The Port Of Beirut In Two Texts That Healde La Catastrophe A La Catharsisl’Explosion Du Port De Beyrouth Dans Deux Textes Qui Pansent, Christelle Stephan-Hayek Aug 2021

From Catastrophe To Catharsis: The Explosion Of The Port Of Beirut In Two Texts That Healde La Catastrophe A La Catharsisl’Explosion Du Port De Beyrouth Dans Deux Textes Qui Pansent, Christelle Stephan-Hayek

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Abstract: Catastrophe, a notion as old as man, is today considered obsolete in the scientific sphere, since it constitutes "a blinding image which distracts the researcher from his object by its capacity to dazzle" (Coanus, Duchêne, Martinais , 2004). This is how the notion of "risk" replaced that of "disaster", since a risk can be calculated, prevented, avoided, reduced, etc. The disaster would thus become a “risk that has been realized”.

The double explosion of the port of Beirut is therefore this disaster. "In five seconds: two hundred dead, one hundred and fifty missing, six thousand wounded, nine thousand buildings damaged ...

Qualitative Review Of Educational Interventions For Improving Physical Activity Behaviors In Older Asian Americans In The United States, Raisa Kabir, Manoj Sharma, Sayeda Tazim Zaidi, Chia-Liang Dai

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

Physical activity (PA) provides numerous health benefits and minimizes chronic diseases and mental health issues, especially in older adults. The national survey data indicated that only 27.3% to 44.3% of older adults meet the recommended PA guidelines of 150 to 300 minutes/ week. There is limited data on PA behavior among older Asian American (AA) adults as very few to no local/national surveys have targeted these marginalized subgroups. This comprehensive review aims to identify existing PA intervention strategies and to update current knowledge on the effectiveness of these interventions to improve PA behavior among aging AA in ...


The Future Of The Live Entertainment Tax In Southern Nevada, Katie M. Gilbertson Aug 2021

The Future Of The Live Entertainment Tax In Southern Nevada, Katie M. Gilbertson

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

The Live Entertainment Tax (LET) in Nevada generated nearly one billion dollars during the 2019-2020 fiscal year. LET revenue all goes to the State General Fund, even though 97 percent of LET revenue is generated in Clark County. Nevada is experiencing an economic crisis, particularly in the tourism industry. Solutions from various fields suggest the best way to boost the local economy is to reinvest revenue in its original county. One policy solution Nevada policymakers should consider is to carve out a percentage of revenue generated by the LET to return directly back to Clark County to revitalize tourism.

Diabetes Mellitus Affects Working Memory, Dylone C. Braganza, Emmanuel Flores, Lauren A. Crew, Ryan A. Wirt, Andrew A. Ortiz, Adam M. Mcneela, Jefferson W. Kinney, James M. Hyman

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) degrades the brain’s ability to remember, think, and carry out tasks. The exact cause is not known, but several risk factors have been identified, including diabetes mellitus (DM). DM causes elevated blood sugar levels due to reduced insulin production in the pancreas. The linkage between elevated glucose levels and the behavioral impairments are not fully understood, which was the focus of this study. Rats were trained to alternate directions in a maze to receive a reward on consecutive trials. After training, five rats were injected with streptozotocin (STZ), which induces hyperglycemia by injuring pancreatic beta ...


A Timeline Of Discovery And Current Research On Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma And Emergence Of Potentially Permanent Treatment Solutions, Yonosuke Dejesus, Guadalupe Moreno Ceballos Aug 2021

A Timeline Of Discovery And Current Research On Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma And Emergence Of Potentially Permanent Treatment Solutions, Yonosuke Dejesus, Guadalupe Moreno Ceballos

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

This research examines the timeline of the discovery and research of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma (POAG). By reviewing the literature on genetic and molecular mechanisms, we aim to emphasize a long-term treatment solution (iSTENT) to mitigate intraocular pressure (IOP) related to POAG etiology and disease progression. POAG is a multifactorial, autosomal dominant, adult-onset eye disease wherein the optic nerve cells become damaged due to a buildup of excess aqueous humor, resulting in increased IOP. Consequently, POAG leads to progressive loss of peripheral vision and is the leading cause of blindness in the US. Due to the multifactorial nature of glaucoma’s ...


Racial Profiling: Understanding The Practice Of Stop-And-Frisk In New York City, Lisa Ly Aug 2021

Racial Profiling: Understanding The Practice Of Stop-And-Frisk In New York City, Lisa Ly

Spectra Undergraduate Research Journal

Racial profiling has become a prominent issue in modern policing today. Instead of being based on individual suspicion, racial profiling embodies a belief that people of color are continuously singled out by the police for scrutiny and harassment. Policies and procedures make the Black community vulnerable to police discrimination and racial profiling. Floyd et al. v. City of New York et al. (2013) declared that the New York Police Department’s (NYPD) practice of stop-and-frisk was racially profiling Black civilians. This study sought (1) to determine if the NYPD post-Floyd is still engaging in racial profiling towards Black civilians; and ...

Physical To Virtual: A Model For Future Virtual Classroom Environments, Stephen J. Fink Jul 2021

Physical To Virtual: A Model For Future Virtual Classroom Environments, Stephen J. Fink

Masters Theses

Virtual reality is a technology that has seen unprecedented growth since the turn of the century with increasing applications within business, entertainment, and educational applications. As virtual reality technologies continue to develops and markets expand, the world may see an increased demand for virtual classrooms: virtual environments (VEs) that students may access through immersive virtual reality technologies to receive guided instruction, conduct simulations, or perform tasks typical in a classroom setting. While many studies document how virtual reality is beneficial to educational processes, there is little discussion on how virtual environments should be architecturally designed. Thus one may hypothesize that ...

The Role Of Aesthetics In Classroom Design: Implications For Engagement And Equity, Giuliana Barraza May 2021

The Role Of Aesthetics In Classroom Design: Implications For Engagement And Equity, Giuliana Barraza

Master's Theses

The desire for achieving greater equity in education has been a prevalent topic of research, with many studies indicating that the current education system in this country is designed in a way that exacerbates initial inequities and has a negative impact on student motivation and engagement (EOCD, 2012). While existing scholarship mostly discusses equity and engagement through the lens of curriculum and instruction, the power of physical classroom environments and aesthetic elements present in those environments is less explored. With student populations becoming more diverse, there is a greater need for new tools for teachers to utilize in pursuit of ...

Evaluating Urban Parks Accessibility And Equity: A Case Study Of Hartford, Ct And New Haven, Ct, Natalie Roach, Mara Tu

Honors Scholar Theses

Public parks provide cities with environmental benefits, positive health effects, recreational opportunities, community building, educational spaces, and public amenities. However, certain populations have been systematically denied their fair share of these benefits because of unjust practices in the creation and maintenance of urban parks. With a lens of environmental justice, the goal of this research was to assess park quality and accessibility of two Connecticut cities, Hartford and New Haven, by gathering publicly available information as well as using GIS tools.

The Trust for Public Land (TPL) has an existing ParkScore rating system that evaluates the quality of a city ...
