Survivor : a novel by Chuck Palahniuk( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tender Branson, last surviving member of the so-called Creedish Death Cult, is dictating his life story into the flight recorder of Flight 2039, cruising on autopilot at 39,000 feet somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. He is all alone in the airplane, which will crash shortly into the vast Australian outback. But before it does, he will unfold the tale of his journey from an obedient Creedish child and humble domestic servant to an ultra-buffed, steroid-and collagen-packed media messiah

The Kikuyus of Kenya emigrate en masse to a planet in space in a revolt against modern life. Ruled by a witch doctor, they pursue their tribal customs--killing unwanted babies as well as the old and the infirm--but ultimately progress begins to encroach there, too

Visual Compensatory Tracking Performance after Exposure to Flashblinding Pulses. I. Comparison of Human and Rhesus Monkey Subjects( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

To assess the validity of using macaques as human analogues in further flash-blindness studies, three rhesus monkeys and eight human subjects were exposed to identical flashblinding light pulses while performing identical visual compensatory tracking tasks. The light source was a 3400-K tungsten- halogen lamp; optics and shutter were arranged so that a 0.1-sec flash deposited a total energy of 20.7 micro J over a 3-mm-diameter spot on the retina. Flashblindness recovery time was determined by examining the tracking error trace immediately after treatment. A total of 160 human and 97 rhesus treatments were recorded. Average recovery time for the humans was 2.8 + or - 0.6 sec; for the rhesus, 3.2 + or - 1.1 sec. This close agreement was found in spite of different tracking control strategies used by human and rhesus subjects. Rhesus monkeys were judged acceptable as human analogues for this specific type of testing

An Examination of the Correlates to Achievement on the California High School Exit Exam by Paul Garcia( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The California High School Exit Exam (cahsee), established in 1999, requires all high school students beginning with the class of 2004 to pass the cahsee to earn a high school diploma. A study was conducted in a large urban school district in central California of the first year of implementation of cahsee. The study gathered evidence about student attitudes toward the cahsee, the extent of classroom and student preparation for the test, and the effect of test results on subsequent student performance. Data used were extant cahsee and student databases, student survey results completed by 3,925 students (approximately 78% of ninth graders in the school district, and student focus groups at various schools. Findings suggest that this high stakes testing has contributed to increased test preparation, especially among students with limited English language proficiency. The student survey data also provide some evidence that for some students the curriculum has narrowed. Disparate achievement levels were found when white and nonwhite students were compared, and the small number of beginning English learners with passing cahsee scores raises the question of when high stakes tests are appropriate for students not proficient in English. Preliminary evidence does not support the idea that poor performance on the cahsee had adverse effects on students academic grades. However, changes in school attendance were significantly related to number of test sections passed on cahsee. (Contains 3 tables and 11 references.) (Sld)
Evaluacion del estado nutricional de los ninos de 6 a 12 anos en el grupo escolar "Manuel Antonio Garcia" Cabure by Paul Garcia( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Con el objeto de evaluar el estdo nutricional de ninos de6-12 anos de edad de Cabure, capital del distrito Petit, se estudiaron 377 ninos, algunos regulares del grupo escolar Manuel A. Garcia deesta localidad, de los cuales 190(50,39 porciento) eran del sexo masculino y 187(49,61 porciento) de sexo femenino se procedio a cuntificar las medidads antropometricas de peso y talla y se realizo una entrevista al grupo familiar donde se precisan algunos aspectos socio-economicos y nutricionales. Se estimaron las medidas antropometricas de los ninos utilizando medidas centrales de, de dispersion y de posicion. Se analizo estadisticamente la diferencia de los valores para cada sexo y edad, igualmente se establecio la relacion entre los datos socio-economicos registrados y la calidad de la alimentacion en cada grupo de ninos considerados con percentiles subnormales para el nino venezolano(AU)

Visual Compensatory Tracking Performance after Exposure to Flashblinding Pulses. II. Sub-Damage-Threshold Laser Irradiation of Rhesus Monkey Subjects( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Two rhesus monkeys were exposed to green or multicolor (white) laser pulses while performing a visual compensator tracking test. The pulses were approximately 200 nsec in duration; energy deposited on the retina ranged from 0.55 to 3.75 micro J.A total of 99 exposures were recorded. Flashblindness recovery times (FBT's) were determined by examination of postexposure tracking error plots. Most exposures had no apparent effect. Average FBT from exposures that produced events was 1.9 + or - 0.8 sec; no dose-response relationship was evident. These exposure-related events were indistinguishable in appearance from random startle events that occurred frequently during task performance. We concluded that, for these studies, the laser exposures caused momentary startles that were probably not true flashblindness incidents

The Effect of Glare on Regan Contrast Letter Acuity Scores Using Dye-Based and Reflective Laser Eye Protection( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Current laser eye protection devices (LEPDs) are dye-based or reflective. While both technologies block the laser wavelengths, reflective LEPDs generally transmit more visible light than do dye-based LEPDs. Consequently reflective LEPDs are generally superior to dye-based LEPDs for the sparse light conditions of night. Reflective LEPDs are also better at maintaining a constant color appearance which is important for tasks requiring recognition of color coded information such as reading color maps or color cockpit displays. The advantages of reflective LEPDS, higher light transmission and better color recognition, need to be considered in association with other optical qualities of reflective LEPDs. One significant measure of optical quality is haze, which tends to be higher in reflective LEPDs. Wearing an LEPD with high haze can accentuate the impact of glare. Glare reduces visual acuity, particularly at low contrast levels. Differences in contrast acuity between dye-based and reflective LEPDs were investigated in the current experiment. Under indoor lighting (photopic) contrast acuity was separately measured with and without glare. In the absence of glare, contrast acuity remained high with all LEPDs. Only small decrements in the ability to identify very low contrast stimuli were found. In the presence of glare, the ability to identify low contrast stimuli was substantially reduced while wearing the reflective LEPDs with higher haze. While reflective LEPDs have been optimized for nighttime use, these data suggest that glare problems from the sun might be experienced while wearing reflective LEPD if protection is required during the day
