Putting the community back into community networks : a content analysis by Michael A Horning( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This study examines the role that community networks can take in fulfilling McQuail's call for a more democratic participant form of media. Community networks, which are grassroots organizations designed to promote local community initiatives, increased their presence on the Internet in the 1990s. However, in recent years their number has declined. Research suggests that community networks fail because they lack a unified identity, have not determined their specific purpose on the Web, and do not provide relevant information to network members. Findings suggest that community networks wishing to achieve sustainability should concentrate their efforts on developing social capital and fostering strong democracy on their sites. The extent to which existing community networks are working toward developing such content is assessed"--Abstract
Endurance training increases fatty acid turnover, but not fat oxidation, in young men( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

We examined the effects of exercise intensity and a 10-wk cycle ergometer training program (5 days/wk, 1 h, 75% peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak)) on plasma free fatty acid (FFA) flux, total fat oxidation, and a whole body lipolysis in healthy male subjects (n=10, age=25.6 +- 1.0 yr). Two pretrainingtrials (45 and 65% of VO2peak) and two posttraining trials (same absolute workload, 65% of old VO2peak; and same relative workload, 65% of new VO2peak were performed by uisng an in fusion of (1-13C) palmitate and (1,1,2,3,3- H2) glycerol. An additional nine subjects (age 25.4 +-0.8 yr) weretreated similary but were infused with (1,1,2,3,3- H2) glycerol and not (1-13C) palmitate. Subjects were studied postabsorptive for 90 min of rest and1h of cycling exercise. After training, subjects increased VO2peak by 9.4+-1.4%. Pretraining, plasma FFA kinetics were inversely related to exerciseintensity with rates of appearance (Ra) and disappearance (Rd) being significantly higher at 45 than 65% VO2peak (RA:8.14 +- 1.28 vs. 6.64 +- 0.46,Rd 8.03 +- 1.28 vs 6.42 +- 0.41 mol kg-1 min-1)(P<=0.05). After training, when measured at the same absolute and relative intensities, FFA Ra increased to 8.84 +- 1.1, 8.44 +- 1.1 and Rd to 8.82 +- 1.1, 8.35 +- 1.1 mol kg-1 min -1, respectively (p<=0.05). Total fat oxidation determined from respiratory exchange ratio was elevated during exercise compared with rest, but did not differ among the four conditions. Glycerol Ra was elevated during exercise compared with rest but did not demonstrate significant intensity or training effects during exercise. Thus, in young men, plasma FFA flux is increased during exercise after endurance training, but total fat oxidation and whole-body lipolysis are unaffected when measured at the same absolute or relative exercise intensities

Responding to Charlie Hebdo( )

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

Abstract : This paper utilizes survey methodology to explore the ethical perspectives of political cartoonists following the Charlie Hebdo shootings. Ethics positions theory is considered. Participants tended to be either situationists, absolutists, or exceptionists. Political ideology was associated with relativism scores. Findings showed that most of the participants (74 percent) reported that they drew a cartoon in response to the shootings. Participants expressed feelings of anger and sadness following the shootings. They reported that they drew cartoons illustrating free speech, cartoonists, pencils and pens, or violence following the shootings
