The dragons of Camelot( Visual )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Kingdom of Camelot is plunged into darkness after the death of noble King Arthur, as the reign of his cruel sorceress sister, Morgan, begins. Commanding three deadly dragons with her dark magic, she hunts the remaining Knights of the Round Table to the ends of the Earth. Galahad realizes that in order to succeed, they must find his father, Lancelot, who's been in exile for years"--Container
Transportation pricing and finance options for California by Brian D Taylor( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objective of this research project was to conduct research on the merits, costs and application potential of various transportation pricing approaches, to better inform decision makers and the public about transportation financing/pricing option in California. The research emphasis will be on processes and techniques by which pricing can be made acceptable to public officials and lay citizens in California. Through rigorous analysis and the development of accessible resource materials, this work will support better public policymaking in California related to transportation finance, congestion management, and transportation pricing. The concept of "congestion pricing" has been the subject of lively intellectual debates in the field of transportation since 1920. Economic theory suggests that variable tolls can influence travel decisions so that roads are more efficiently utilized. While economists have vigorously promoted congestion tolls for years, wary politicians and interest groups, including automobile clubs and trucking associations, have usually coolly received congestion-pricing proposals. The situation has changed rapidly during the past decade, however, and roadway pricing is now seen by an increasing number of stakeholders as an important dimension of future transportation policy. There are several reasons for the recent shift in attitudes, including changes in circumstances facing transportation decision makers and fundamental changes in the nature of pricing proposals themselves
Proceedings of the National Conference on Water, Food Security and Climate Change in Sri Lanka, BMICH, Colombo, June 9-11, 2009 : volume 2, water quality, environment and climate change( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the second volume of the proceedings of the National Conference on 'Water for Food and Environment', which was held from June 9-11, 2009 at the Bandaranaike Memorial International Conference Hall (BMICH). The volumes 1 and 3 have been produced as separate documents of this report series. In response to a call for abstracts, 81 abstracts were received from government institutes dealing with water resources and agriculture development, universities, other freelance researchers and researchers from the International Water Management Institute (IWMI). Forty seven of the eighty-one abstracts that were submitted were accepted for compiling full papers. In the past couple of years the sharp increase in food prices worldwide has raised serious concerns about food security, especially in developing countries. To effectively address these concerns a holistic approach is required that encompasses improved agricultural water productivity, adaptation to climate change, targeted and appropriate institutional and financial measures, and a consideration of environmental issues. The main purpose of the conference was to share experiences in these areas and to find opportunities to improve farmers' incomes and food production, and to promote environmentally sustainable practices in Sri Lanka in the face of growing water scarcity and the challenges of climate change
Is sexual violence associated with symptoms of depression and suicide attempts by MeLisa Creamer( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sexual assault, depression, and suicide are all very serious issues among youth today. This study sought to quantify the association between sexual violence, symptoms of depression, and suicide attempts through the use of 2007 Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) data. The YRBS is a nationally representative dataset of United States high school students, grades 9-12. It was hypothesized that sexual violence is significantly associated with symptoms of depression and suicide attempts. Through multivariate logistic regression, it was determined that students who had ever experienced forced sex were 3.10 (2.7-3.6) times as likely to be depressed, in the past 12 months, and 4.22 (3.5-5.1) times as likely to have attempted suicide. Female victims were 3.43 (2.9-4.0) times as likely to be depressed; male victims were 5.40 (3.7-7.9) times as likely to have attempted suicide. Sexual violence is significantly associated with both symptoms of depression and suicide attempt when stratified by gender, grade, and race/ethnicity. These results indicate that further study of the association between sexual violence and symptoms of depression and suicide attempts need to be conducted in order to establish temporality

Short-term immobilization influences use-dependent cortical plasticity and fine motor performance( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: 8 h of immobilization reduced motor cortical excitability but not intracortical inhibition. Performance on a novel motor training task was reduced after immobilization. Use-dependent cortical plasticity with training was increased after immobilization. Abstract: Short-term immobilization that reduces muscle use for 8-10 h is known to influence cortical excitability and motor performance. However, the mechanisms through which this is achieved, and whether these changes can be used to modify cortical plasticity and motor skill learning, are not known. The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of short-term immobilization on use-dependent cortical plasticity, motor learning and retention. Twenty-one adults were divided into control and immobilized groups, both of which underwent two experimental sessions on consecutive days. Within each session, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was used to assess motor-evoked potential (MEP) amplitudes, short- (SICI) and long-interval intracortical inhibition (LICI), and intracortical facilitation (ICF) before and after a grooved pegboard task. Prior to the second training session, the immobilized group underwent 8 h of left hand immobilization targeting the index finger, while control subjects were allowed normal limb use. Immobilization produced a reduction in MEP amplitudes, but no change in SICI, LICI or ICF. While motor performance improved for both groups in each session, the level of performance was greater 24-h later in control, but not immobilized subjects. Furthermore, training-related MEP facilitation was greater after, compared with before, immobilization. These results indicate that immobilization can modulate use-dependent plasticity and the retention of motor skills. They also suggest that changes in intracortical excitability are unlikely to contribute to the immobilization-induced modification of cortical excitability
Redistributors( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

London PR girl goes on the run accused of leaking information from the military supply company where she works. Pursued by ex-soldiers, she hides with her brother in a squat where he lives with anti-establishment protesters. When she learns they are The Redistributors, a group famous for hacking tax evader's accounts and passing money to the poor, she asks to meet with their charismatic leader, Michael Manning. She realizes that with his help she can bring down her former employer before they get to her
