Sexuality in the comedies of William Shakespeare( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social Issues in Literature meets the need for materials supporting curriculum integration. Each title in this distinctive new series examines an important literary work or body of work through the lens of a major social issue. Each volume presents biographical and critical information on the author, viewpoints on the social issue portrayed in the book, and contemporary assessments of the social issue as well as a chronology of important dates in the author's life, discussion questions, a guide to additional literary works that focus on the same social issue, a bibliography for further research and a thorough subject index"--

Teenage Pregnancy. Opposing Viewpoints Series by Stephen P Thompson( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Books in the Opposing Viewpoints series challenge readers to question their own opinions and assumptions. By reading carefully balanced views, readers confront new ideas on the topic of interest. Although some experts believe that the problem of teenage pregnancy has been overstated, other recent studies have led many people to believe that something must be done to address a disturbing trend. Many commentators, especially conservatives, believe that welfare encourages teenage pregnancy, while others disagree that welfare is a cause. Many of these critics point out that teenage pregnancy is a response to poverty and an environment lacking in educational and economic opportunities. The approach adopted by Congress effectively endorses the conservative response to teenage pregnancy. Many argue that removing the safety net of welfare will only result in more poverty and suffering. Divergent viewpoints on adolescent pregnancy and related issues of welfare reform are presented in 27 essays grouped into the following sections: (1) "Is Teenage Pregnancy a Serious Problem?"; (2) "What Factors Contribute to Teenage Pregnancy?"; (3) "How Can Teenage Pregnancy Be Prevented?"; And (4) "What New Initiatives Would Reduce Teen Pregnancy?" Each section contains a bibliography of periodical references. A list of 18 organizations to contact for further information is provided. (Contains 34 references.) (Sld)
Dynamic strain propagation in nanoparticulate zirconia refractory( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Residual and intrinsic strains in granular materials have been studied extensively. However, understanding the dynamic strains that cause these resultant residual strains is key to developing better strain‐resistant materials. This investigation demonstrates a method for characterizing dynamic strain propagation in granular materials. The specimen is a zirconia‐based refractory composed of sol–gel‐derived zirconia nanoparticles in a potassium silicate glass binder. In situ synchrotron X‐ray powder diffraction in flat‐plate geometry is used to characterize the sample structure on timescales of the order of 1 ms. A 125 W CO2 laser is used to strain the sample with a 25 ms pulse length. To compensate for the poor flux on this timescale, a pump–probe method is repeated 1000 times and the resulting data are subsequently re‐binned to improve statistics. A Gaussian weighting function is also used to introduce better contrast between strained and unstrained frames. TOPAS Academic is used for fitting with a Le Bail model in `batch mode'. Lattice parameters and sample height are refined during fitting, along with a Lorentzian line width for extracting microstrain broadening. Microstrains, ɛ, in the range of 1.01 < ɛ < 1.46% are reported on a 1 ms timescale
New synchrotron powder diffraction facility for long‐duration experiments( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The world's first dedicated synchrotron instrument for long‐duration experiments has been built and commissioned at Diamond Light Source. The new beamline I11 user facility is designed for the study of slow kinetics in polycrystalline materials. Abstract : A new synchrotron X‐ray powder diffraction instrument has been built and commissioned for long‐duration experiments on beamline I11 at Diamond Light Source. The concept is unique, with design features to house multiple experiments running in parallel, in particular with specific stages for sample environments to study slow kinetic systems or processes. The instrument benefits from a high‐brightness X‐ray beam and a large area detector. Diffraction data from the commissioning work have shown that the objectives and criteria are met. Supported by two case studies, the results from months of measurements have demonstrated the viability of this large‐scale instrument, which is the world's first dedicated facility for long‐term studies (weeks to years) using synchrotron radiation
