Spatial Epidemiology Of Summer Trauma In Scott County, Ia: Use Of Gis To Identify Trauma Incidence In Urban And Rural Areas, Matthew Koch 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Spatial Epidemiology Of Summer Trauma In Scott County, Ia: Use Of Gis To Identify Trauma Incidence In Urban And Rural Areas, Matthew Koch

Celebration of Learning

Traumatic injury is a blanket term referring to acute physical injuries which pose an immediate threat to life and limb, requiring urgent medical care. Unintentional injuries are the fifth-leading cause of death, and fatal injuries cost the American economy over $84 billion annually in lost work and medical costs. Scott County, IA, is a unique environment for trauma research because it served by a single trauma center and features within its 458 square miles distinct urban and rural populations. Patient data from the trauma registry, including age, race, and mechanism of injury (MOI) was combined with the corresponding spatial data ...


Making A German-American Place: Davenport, Iowa, 1836-1918, Benjamin E. Bruster 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Making A German-American Place: Davenport, Iowa, 1836-1918, Benjamin E. Bruster

Celebration of Learning

This study examines the impact of German-Americans in the creation of Davenport and Scott County, Iowa from 1836 through 1918. Like cities many other 19th century places in the American interior, Davenport and Scott County direly needed people to settle it, build its infrastructure, develop its economy, and contribute to growing social and political life. Conveniently, Davenport and Scott County boosters’ desires occurred simultaneously with rampant pauperism, political, ideological, and religious revolutions, economic redundancy, and widespread dreams of rebirth in Germany. These conditions produced an unprecedented migration from Germany to Davenport and Scott County in the second-half of the ...


Cultivating The Mindset For Creative Output, Alison Akell 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Cultivating The Mindset For Creative Output, Alison Akell

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

Changing habits is a common pursuit whether it is in support of one’s creative work or another personal goal. I wanted to take myself more seriously as an artist and to change my procrastination habit towards that work. While solutions can seem simple, the ongoing difficulty of making this change led me seek further understanding of why knowledge of a solution is not always enough. Throughout my study in the Critical and Creative Thinking program at The University of Massachusetts Boston, I started to develop knowledge of the underlying ways of thinking that were affecting my actions. Learning about ...

Paleomythologies: The Spiritual Persuasion Of Evolution, Gregory Schneider-Bateman, Julie A. Homchick Crowe 2018 University of Wisconsin - Stout

Paleomythologies: The Spiritual Persuasion Of Evolution, Gregory Schneider-Bateman, Julie A. Homchick Crowe

Poroi

A current rise in so-called “caveman” diets, books, exercise regimes and other trends demonstrates a cultural attempt to reclaim idealized prehistoric conditions for the modern human. In a rhetorical analysis of texts from this modern paleo culture, we identify what we call a “paleomyth” and illustrate how such lifestyle trends not only offer truncated understandings of evolutionary science, but more importantly how they offer a mythological narrative for paleo believers.


“Should You Encounter”: The Social Conditions Of Empathy, Eric Leake 2018 Texas State University

“Should You Encounter”: The Social Conditions Of Empathy, Eric Leake

Poroi

In this essay I analyze a series of first-person homeless accounts and reader responses in the Las Vegas Sun newspaper in order to highlight the social conditions that support or inhibit empathy. I review the rhetorical study of empathy and incorporate work from social psychology and moral philosophy to identify and examine the conditions of assessing victimhood and recognizing of self-other overlap. I find the irony of empathy to be that the very social forces that would necessitate an expansion of empathy also inhibit it through increasing social division and the reluctance of readers to recognize their own vulnerabilities in ...


Alliance Activism: Feminist And Videogame Learning Principles In Building An Identity-Based, Personal-Development Roadmap Addressing Subjective Bias And Discrimination, Delivered In A Mass-Briefing Format Using Videogame Terminology, Erik Anker 2018 University of Massachusetts Boston

Alliance Activism: Feminist And Videogame Learning Principles In Building An Identity-Based, Personal-Development Roadmap Addressing Subjective Bias And Discrimination, Delivered In A Mass-Briefing Format Using Videogame Terminology, Erik Anker

Critical and Creative Thinking Capstones Collection

While many white individuals in America are antiracist in their attitudes, many are not. This makes conversations with whites around race a delicate space: addressing an imbalance of privilege with those who benefit from it. Additionally, to not alienate whites from antiracist causes by associating them with a historical identity seeped in racism calls for its own nuance. The project described in this thesis looks to address these concerns by providing whites with a roadmap for personal growth consisting of various identities for addressing bias, discrimination, and oppression in honest and proactive ways. The delivery of these identities could be ...

Reducing Feelings Of Marginalization For Black Students, Jacob Roberson 2018 University of Richmond

Reducing Feelings Of Marginalization For Black Students, Jacob Roberson

Arts & Sciences Student Symposium

As if they do not belong, black students attending predominantly white institutions nationwide all deal with feelings of marginalization on their respective campuses. At the University of Richmond, such feelings of "otherness" hold true. Though the current president of the University, as well as presidents past, has instituted "strategic plans" that include goals of flourishing diversity and inclusion "for all," black students at the University, before and still today, do not feel their presence is welcomed or valued on campus. Herein lie suggestions on how to improve cultural awareness and knowledge for non-black students and non-black faculty in hopes that ...


An Investigation Into Trust And Security In The Mandatory And Imposed Use Of Financial Icts Upon Older People, David Michael Cook 2018 Edith Cowan University

An Investigation Into Trust And Security In The Mandatory And Imposed Use Of Financial Icts Upon Older People, David Michael Cook

David M Cook

Care needs to be taken to reduce the number of people who are fearful and mistrustful of using ICT where that usage is forced upon them without choice or alternative. The growing incidence of mandatory and imposed online systems can result in confusion, misuse, fear, and rejection by people with only rudimentary ICT skills. A cohort where a high percentage of such people occur is older people, defined in this study as people over the age of 60 Examples of compulsory ICT interactions include some banks limiting bank statement access through online rather than paper-based options. Other examples include the ...

Community Collaborative Cultural Adaptation: Creating Culturally Appropriate Behavioral Interventions Through University And Community Collaborations, A. Kathleen Burlew, Donna Shambley-Ebron, Danni Lanaway, Caravella Mccuistian, Lamonica Sherman, Lashkela Steele

Collaborations: A Journal of Community-Based Research and Practice

University and community collaborations have great potential to develop culturally adapted evidence- based interventions. However, little guidance is available on effective approaches for creating and implementing such partnerships specifically to culturally adapt interventions. The purpose of this paper is to introduce Community Collaborative Cultural Adaptation (CCCA), an approach for engaging community members as partners in the cultural adaptation of an evidence based intervention. CCCA is illustrated through the cultural adaptation of a behavioral intervention aimed at reducing unsafe sex among teen girls. The approach includes the following three stages: (1) preparatory (i.e., community engagement, recruitment of community members to ...
