<p>In the last decade, most offices have been equipped with computers, and most office workers spend much of their time sitting in chairs. And recently, as many office workers complain of back pains, the importance ofproper sitting and of chair designs that provide comfortable and suitable sitting posture has become recognized widely.</p> <p> One organization involved in the design of chairs is the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES) and its ANSIIHFES 100 committee. This committee has established the ANS/IHFES 100 standard for various types of furniture used at computer workstations, including chairs, desks, and tables. This committee also has designed the Chair Measurement Device (CMD) for specific assessments of seat height, seat depth, seat width, backrest height, backrest width, lumbar support, seat to back included angle, ...
Chairs of teaching departments have been accepted as in a position to assist their faculty’s development. Perceptions of the chair’s role from the 29 faculty’s, the chair’s and higher administrators’ viewpoints, and across a variety of institutional settings, have been the subject of research for decades. This research expanded the small amount of similar research that has begun regarding department chairs in academic libraries. The academic library department chairs must act as more than managers and supervisors of personnel. Library faculty, like their teaching department counterparts, should be able to view their chair as interested in the development of their faculty. The department chairs must step up and not leave their faculty to fend for themselves in these important matters. Rather, they should communicate expectations, active...
A Ghost in the Chair examines the role which trustee governance of news media organisations can play in promoting and protecting democratically significant journalism. This stewardship is commonly found in public service broadcasting, and is rare in the private sector where most trusts serve the interests of newspaper-controlling families. A small number of newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic are owned by trust-like organisations that practice a public service approach to print journalism. Resources devoted to mainstream journalism are being reduced by recession and by long-term effects that have eroded the conventional business model employed by profitdriven, market-listed media groups. This thesis assesses trusts as an alternative more sustainable ownership model. It examines historical and present-day use of trust str...
Last year, in May, the building of the Faculty of Architecture at the Delft Technical University was destroyed almost entirely by fire. Fortunately, some parts of the building escaped the flames and, after a few days, the library collection of over 40,000 titles was saved, as was the chair collection. It was a narrow escape, and the confrontation with their possible loss made the value of the collection all the more apparent. After the incident, it was decided to try and make the collection more widely known and accessible, and this article is part of this effort.
The goals and objectives of the Henry Cecil Ransom McBay Chair in Space Sciences were to: (1) provide leadership in developing and expanding Space Science curriculum; (2) contribute to the research and education endeavors of NASA's Mission to Planet Earth program; (3) expand opportunities for education and hands-on research in Space and Earth Sciences; (4) enhance scientific and technological literacy at all educational levels and to increase awareness of opportunities in the Space Sciences; and (5) develop a pipeline, starting with high school, of African American students who will develop into a cadre of well-trained scientists with interest in Space Science Research and Development.
The purpose of this study was to identify attributional styles (AS) of academic department chairs. Attributional style is the repeatable pattern of personal explanation for other's behavior and was examined through the underlying dimensions of locus of control, stability, controllability, globality, and intentionality. Measurement of these dimensions was accomplished through the administration of the Chair Attributional Style Questionnaire (CASQ). AS results were examined for significant correlations with departmental effectiveness, future departmental effectiveness, attitude toward change, and the effects of positive versus negative scenarios. ^ Significant correlations were found in individual departmental scenarios, most notably for locus of control, stability, and controllability, but did not adequately hold together in a factor ...
La drosophile du cerisier Drosophila suzukii a été introduite en Europe en 2008 et a déjà causé de gros dégâts dans le bassin méditerranéen. Ce nouveau ravageur a été identifié en Suisse pour la première fois au cours de l’été passé. Cette drosophile s’attaque à tous les fruits à chair tendre (baies, cerises, raisins) et à de nombreux fruits sauvages. Cette année, toutes les cultures sensibles doivent être surveillées avec des pièges au vinaigre de pomme. Pour la prévention des attaques, il est recommandé d’utiliser des filets à mailles fines, de faire des piégeages de masse et de détruire les fruits attaqués. L’OFAG a autorisé sous conditions l’utilisation de Spinosad et de pyrèthre.
The aim of the study was to evaluate the bond strength properties of four chair-side silicone lining materials (GC Reline Soft, Ufigel SC, Elite Soft Relining and Tokuyama Sofreliner S) and to compare their properties with those of a heat-cured silicone lining material Molloplast B. Tensile and shear bond strengths were measured using a Lloyd Instruments Materials Testing Machine (LR 5K), at a crosshead speed of 20 mm/min for tensile and shear testing. GC Reline Soft exhibited the highest shear bond strength (1.25 MPa), though this was not significantly higher than Molloplast B. The other materials were significantly weaker, with Ufigel SC being the weakest (0.49 MPa). GC Reline Soft also exhibited the highest tensile bond strength, though this was again not significantly higher than Molloplast B. Tokuyama Sofreliner SS (0.74 MPa) was ...
Air passenger miles will likely double by year 2020. The altered and restrictive environment in an airliner cabin can influence hematological homeostasis in passengers and crew. Flight-related deep various thromboemboli (DVT) have been associated with at least 577 deaths on 42 of 120 airlines from 1977 to 1984 (25 deaths/million departures), whereas many such cases go unreported. However, there are four major factors that could influence formation of possible flight-induced DVT: sleeping accomodations (via sitting immobilization), travelers' medical history (via tissue injury), cabin environmental factors (via lower partial pressure of oxygen and lower relative humidity), and the more encompassing chair-rest deconditioning (C-RD) syndrome. There is ample evidence that recent injury and surgery (especially in deconditioned hospitalized ...
