Scared scriptless : a novel by Alison Sweeney( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maddy Carson loves her job as a Script Supervisor on the hit show, The Wrong Doctor, as much as she loathes fake boobs, juice cleanses, oversized designer sunglasses, and all other things "Hollywood." Super-organized and down-to-earth, Maddy has maintained a strict dating rule throughout her ten years in L.A.: "No Actors!" But she is seeing someone in the industry, Craig, one of the Executive Producers for the show ... and technically her boss. When Maddy regales Craig with stories of Wolf County, her beloved hometown in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, he's intrigued. He convinces her that a reality show featuring the eccentric characters of the charming ski town could be great for the production company (not to mention a hit that could help his career). Given that her parents and her community are facing serious financial challenges, a show that could drive tourism and boost the economy may be just the saving grace they need. Maddy and Craig visit Wolf County, where she uses her personal connections to recruit people for the show and to get footage for a sizzle reel to pitch to networks. Indeed, the lively characters and beautiful backdrop make for terrific material. But back in L.A., Maddy learns that Craig has his own agenda, and their creative vision's clash. Now Maddy has to stop Craig, whatever it takes. Meanwhile, Maddy has an unexpected flirtation with The Wrong Doctor's newest cast member, Adam Devlin. When things begin to fall apart with Craig, she decides to give Adam a chance-but is she suited for dating a hugely popular actor with throngs of female fans who follow him everywhere and even leave their panties tucked into his windshield? When it comes to life and love, Maddy has to learn that sometimes it's more important to break all her self-imposed rules and simply follow her heart. Mimicking the five-act script of a television show, Scared Scriptless is a love letter to TV, and offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look for fans of both reality and scripted television - worlds that Alison Sweeney knows intimately."--

All the days of my life (so far) by Alison Sweeney( )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"You think your life is nuts? Since I was sixteen, I've spent time on Death Row, tried to sell my baby sister on the black market, been stranded at the altar (repeatedly), lied about my son's paternity, and fought viciously with just about everybody in town. Well, okay, it wasn't really me--it was my character, Sami Brady on Days of Our Lives. But like Sami, I've had my share of struggles. I've been told I was fat, watched fellow actresses starve themselves, been cruelly rejected, and wondered if I would ever date. (Hey, the first time I kissed a boy was in front of a TV camera!) There was even a time when I hated myself. Sound familiar? This is my story. It's an account of my years on daytime's most popular soap, and of my life off-screen--the major ups and downs, the craziness of Hollywood, balancing work and play, looking for love, concerns about weight, peer pressure, and finally learning to accept myself for who I am. I'll tell you fun stories about myself and my co-stars ... recollections of my most memorable scenes ... and everything you've always wanted to know about Sami. I think you'll find a lot in these pages that will remind you of all the days of your life ... and perhaps inspire you to follow your own dreams in the days to come. Alison Sweeney was born in Los Angeles, one of three children of a concert violinist mother and a business investor father. Her acting career began when she was four years old. Throughout her childhood, Alison appeared in numerous television commercials, as well television series including Friends, Simon & Simon, Webster, St. Elsewhere, and Tales from the Darkside. She had starring roles in the films The Price of Life and The End of Innocence. Alison joined the cast of Days of Our Lives as Sami Brady in 1993. In her years on the series, her character has evolved from a troubled teenager to a scheming villainess. In 2002, Alison won a fan-voted Emmy as America's Favorite Villain. She has also won the fan-voted Soap Opera Digest Award four times, and in 2001 was elected by the same publication as one of the Most Beautiful Women in Daytime Television. Soap Opera Weekly named Alison 1999's Breakout Performer of the year, and in Australia, she was voted "Best Bad Girl" in 2000 and 2001 by readers of Inside Soaps magazine. Alison lives in a suburb of Los Angeles with her husband, Dave."--

Optical cerebral blood flow monitoring of mice to men by Wesley Boehs Baker( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis describes cerebral hemodynamic monitoring with the optical techniques of diffuse optical spectroscopy (DOS) and diffuse correlation spectroscopy (DCS). DOS and DCS both employ near-infrared light to investigate tissue physiology millimeters to centimeters below the tissue surface. DOS is a static technique that analyzes multispectral tissue-scattered light intensity signals with a photon diffusion approach (Chapter 2) or a Modified Beer-Lambert law approach (Chapter 3) to derive tissue oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin concentrations, which are in turn used to compute tissue oxygen saturation and blood volume (Section 2.13). DCS is a qualitatively different dynamic technique that analyzes rapid temporal fluctuations in tissue-scattered light with a correlation diffusion approach to derive tissue blood flow (Chapter 4). Further, in combination these measurements of blood flow and blood oxygenation provide access to tissue oxygen metabolism (Section 7.6)
The optical properties of spiky gold nanoshells by Simon P Hastings( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plasmonic nanoparticles are a powerful and versatile tool for molecular sensing, drug delivery, and cancer treatment. When exposed to incident light, these nanoparticles have greatly increased far-field scattering and near-field enhancement. Spiky gold nanoshells are a recently developed class of nanoparticles composed of sharp gold spikes decorating a polystyrene core. Spiky nanoshells are synthesized using the templated surfactant-assisted seed growth method, which enables extensive control of the nanoparticle morphology. Here, it is shown that these particles have a tailorable far-field resonance, extremely uniform single-particle surface enhanced Raman scattering, and modal interference in dark-field microscopy measurements. Finite-difference time-domain simulations are performed to determine the morphological features which control these unusual behaviors. Additionally, a T-matrix method was developed to use finite-difference time-domain simulations to analyze mode mixing in these particles. These studies show that the lengths of spikes are critical in determining the far-field scattering peak. Additionally, simulation of the electric field near the particle surface show that the near-field Raman surface enhancement is dominated by the quadrupole modes, resulting in Quadrupole Enhanced Raman Scattering. Due to the large number of spikes, the near-field enhancement is relatively insensitive to variations in individual spikes, resulting in emergent homogeneity in optical properties due to heterogeneity in the structure. The disorder induced asymmetry of the spiky nanoshell enables mode-mixing between the dipole and quadrupole modes, which is observed experimentally in dark-field measurements and predicted theoretically in a T-matrix analysis of finite-difference time-domain simulations. This mode mixing was found to be of the order of 5% between the quadrupole and dipole modes. Such mode mixing is responsible for the broadening of the quadrupole modes towards the infrared and for the activation of all six quadrupole moments, partially explaining how heterogeneity can result in reliable and robust near-field enhancement
