Exploring Mental State Reasoning As A Social-Cognitive Mechanism For Social Loafing In Children., Robert Thompson, Bill Thornton Dec 2015

Exploring Mental State Reasoning As A Social-Cognitive Mechanism For Social Loafing In Children., Robert Thompson, Bill Thornton

Bill Thornton

The authors explored mental-state reasoning ability among 72 preschoolers (ages 3-5 years) as a possible developmental mechanism for the well-known social loafing effect: diminished individual effort in a collaborative task. The authors expected that older children would outperform young children on standard mental-state reasoning tests and that they would display greater social loafing than younger children.

Influence Of Prednisolone On Urinary Calcium Oxalate And Struvite Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cats, N Geyer, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, A Hezel, T Moyers, J Hayes Apr 2012

Influence Of Prednisolone On Urinary Calcium Oxalate And Struvite Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cats, N Geyer, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, A Hezel, T Moyers, J Hayes

Sherry Cox

Prednisolone (10 mg PO q24h) or placebo was administered to healthy cats for 2 weeks in a masked, placebo-controlled, crossover-design study, and 24-hour urine samples were collected. When cats received prednisolone, 24-hour urine pH was lower and 24-hour urine excretion of creatinine, magnesium, phosphate, and potassium was higher than when cats received placebo. No significant difference was found in urinary relative supersaturation for calcium oxalate (CaOx) or struvite between treatment groups. Prednisolone administration did not induce diuresis, nor was it associated with increased calcium excretion or urinary saturation for CaOx in these healthy cats. Results of this study, however, should ...


Influence Of Hydrochlorothiazide On Urinary Calcium Oxalate Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cat, A Hezel, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, N Geyer, T Moyers, J Hayes Apr 2012

Influence Of Hydrochlorothiazide On Urinary Calcium Oxalate Relative Supersaturation In Healthy Young Adult Female Domestic Shorthaired Cat, A Hezel, Joe Bartges, Claudia Kirk, Sherry Cox, N Geyer, T Moyers, J Hayes

Sherry Cox

Hydrochlorothiazide (1 mg/kg PO q12h) or placebo was administered to healthy cats for 2 weeks in a masked, placebo-controlled, crossover-design study, and 24-hour urine samples were collected. When cats received hydrochlorothiazide, 24-hour urine volume, ammonia, chloride, creatinine, magnesium, oxalic acid, phosphate, potassium, and sodium were significantly higher than when cats received placebo. Hydrochlorothiazide was associated with significantly lower urinary saturation for calcium oxalate, but no difference was found in 24-hour urine calcium and citrate, urinary saturation for struvite, or blood ionized calcium. Hydrochlorothiazide decreased urinary saturation for calcium oxalate and could be useful in managing cats with calcium oxalate ...

Dragged Into The Past: A Major Motif In Munro's 'Walker Brothers Cowboy', Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

Alice Munro's "Walker Brothers Cowboy" (The Norton Anthology of World Literature. Ed. Sarah Lawall. NY: Norton, 2002) is bracketed by similar images that establish the futility of trying to stop time. At the beginning of story, in order to explain to the narrator how the glaciers formed the Great Lakes, the father "shows me his hand with his spread fingers pressing the rock-hard ground where we are sitting. His fingers hardly make any impression at all ... " (3012); at the conclusion as Ben Jordan, the father, and his children prepare to return home from their odyssey, Nora Cronin touches the ...

Factors Affecting The Impact Of Teacher Education Programmes On Teacher Preparedness : Implications For Accreditation Policy, Lawrence Ingvarson, Adrian Beavis, Elizabeth Kleinhenz Apr 2010

Factors Affecting The Impact Of Teacher Education Programmes On Teacher Preparedness : Implications For Accreditation Policy, Lawrence Ingvarson, Adrian Beavis, Elizabeth Kleinhenz

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

This study provides guidance to policy-makers about the standards that might be appropriate for accrediting teacher education programs. The study was commissioned by the Victorian Institute of Teaching (VIT), a statutory body established in 2001 by the Victorian state government with responsibility for the registration (licensing) of teachers and the accreditation of teacher education programs. The study investigated the characteristics of effective initial teacher education programs, as reported by teachers who have just finished their first year of teaching. A survey instrument was distributed in 2004 to all registered teachers who had graduated from their teacher education program in 2002 ...

A particular focus of these studies was teacher perceptions of workload ...


Leadership Courses : Do They Deliver?, Michelle Anderson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz Apr 2010

Leadership Courses : Do They Deliver?, Michelle Anderson, Elizabeth Kleinhenz

Dr Elizabeth Kleinhenz

The authors examine professional learning courses for principals and ask whether they really deliver what they claim they do. Developers of professional learning need first to have guiding conceptions of school leadership. In recent years, a number of school systems in Australia and overseas have established standards frameworks that spell out leadership knowledge and skills. These can provide a bridge between research and practice, and they are one way to capture what is currently known and valued about the field of school leadership. The authors look at the most effective ways in which such standards can be used to support ...


Different Steps : Post-School Pathways For Australian Students, Jennifer Bryce, Michelle Anderson Feb 2010

Different Steps : Post-School Pathways For Australian Students, Jennifer Bryce, Michelle Anderson

Dr Jennifer Bryce

New research investigates students' often non-linear post-school transitions. A new report, 'Australian Stories: Young People, Their Families and Post-School Plans', builds on research undertaken by the Australian Council for Educational Research for the Smith Family. It examines the stories of nine young people who have participated in the Smith Family Learning for Life scholarship program and who are considered to have made a positive start towards achieving their post-school goals. By asking these young people questions about their decision-making, the barriers they faced, and strategies for overcoming these, the study suggests ways that young people in similar situations may be ...

Postgraduate Research Experience 2006 : The Report Of The Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire, Hamish Coates, John Ainley, B Guthrie, T Friedman

Dr John Ainley

Each year, graduates of Australian higher education institutions who have completed a doctoral or research masters degree are invited by their institution and Graduate Careers Australia (GCA) to respond to the Postgraduate Research Experience Questionnaire (PREQ) about four months after graduation. This report presents the results from the seventh PREQ survey conducted since 1999. The PREQ asks graduates to respond to 28 statements about seven aspects of their research degree. The first 27 statements measure the quality of supervision, the intellectual climate of the department in which the respondent studied, the development of generic skills, the quality of the infrastructure ...

Creating A National Bibliographic Past: The Institute For Hebrew Bibliography, Roger S. Kohn Dec 2007

Creating A National Bibliographic Past: The Institute For Hebrew Bibliography, Roger S. Kohn

Judaica Librarianship

The mission of the Institute for Hebrew Bibliography (IHB), located at the Jewish and National University Library (JNUL) in Jerusalem from the early 1960s to the present, is to describe all of the books printed in Hebrew characters since the invention of printing to 1960. The ambitious scope of the project was set only after discussions between historians and catalogers. The IHB created two card catalogs, one for bibliographic descriptions, and a second for biographies of Hebrew authors. The release, in 1994, of The Bibliography of the Hebrew Book CD-ROM, followed in 2002 by an Internet-accessible database (updated in 2004 ...
