Abstract

Biochemistry laboratory manual for undergraduates – an inquiry based approach by Gerczei and Pattison is the first textbook on the market that uses a highly relevant model, antibiotic resistance, to teach seminal topics of biochemistry and molecular biology while incorporating the blossoming field of bioinformatics. The novelty of this manual is the incorporation of a student-driven real real-life research project into the undergraduate curriculum. Since students test their own mutant design, even the most experienced students remain engaged with the process, while the less experienced ones get their first taste of biochemistry research. Inclusion of a research project does not entail a limitation: this manual includes all classic biochemistry techniques such as HPLC or enzyme kinetics and is complete with numerous problem sets relating to each topic.

Abstract

The Universal Decimal Classification (UDC) is a documentary language used for information representation and retrieval in most libraries in the Western world, particularly in Portugal. This classification language has two purposes: (i) to represent and categorize the subjects of the documents that integrate the collections and, in some cases, (ii) to physically arrange those documents. This work aims to be a guide for the application and use of the UDC and to help understanding its theoretical foundations. The theoretical and practical dimension of this work and its didactic discourse make it an important text for both Information Science students and professionals. This work is structured in three parts: Part I: About the UDC principles; Part II: Structure of UDC; And Part III: UDC Main Classes. Part I, purely theoretical, defines the CDU as a documentary language, addresses its origin, contextualizes it, and refers to its main functions. In a theoretical dimension, this first part refers to the general foundations and characteristics that distinguish this documentary language from other controlled vocabularies. In Part II, the structure of the CDU is analyzed in a more theoretical-practical perspective: (i) the index and its function; (Ii) the notation and its characteristics; (Iii) Auxiliary Tables, their typology, function and characteristics, as well as the signs that identify them; And (iv) the Main Tables, their characteristics and functions. In Part III, each of the classes of the Main Tables is analyzed individually. To this purpose, a common structure was used to study each class. The practical dimension of this manual gains expression with the exercises that are proposed at the end of each class, offering students and professionals the opportunity to solidify their learning and to check their results through the solutions found at the end of the book.

Abstract

A shortage of skilled workers is currently emerging in many countries. Yet public discourse and much research literature convey the impression that manual labor is somehow outmoded, requiring competencies that are no longer necessary in today’s «post-industrial, information-based society». The question of how to achieve the right balance between different types of work in a society is one that transcends national borders.

Abstract

Mouth actions in sign languages have been controversially discussed but the sociolinguistic factors determining their form and functions remain uncertain. This first empirical analysis of mouth actions in Irish Sign Language focuses on correlations with gender, age, and word class. It contributes to the linguistic description of ISL, research into non-manuals in sign languages, and is relevant for the cross-modal study of word classes.

Abstract

The performance of most tasks with one hand, typically the right, is a uniquely human characteristic. Not only do people prefer to use one hand rather than the other, but also they usually perform tasks faster and more accurately with this hand. The study of manual asymmetries and what such performance differences between the two hands reveal about brain organization and motor function has been a topic of considerable research over the last several decades. The aim of this Research Topic is to review and further explore the origins of manual asymmetries and their relationship to handedness, unimanual and bimanual motor performance, and brain function. The articles included here involve original research conducted in humans or non-human models species, as well as theoretical perspectives, review articles, and meta-analyses.

Abstract

This Is Not an Atlas gathers more than 40 counter-cartographies from all over the world. This collection shows how maps are created and transformed as a part of political struggle, for critical research or in art and education: from indigenous territories in the Amazon to the anti-eviction movement in San Francisco; from defending commons in Mexico to mapping refugee camps with balloons in Lebanon; from slums in Nairobi to squats in Berlin; from supporting communities in the Philippines to reporting sexual harassment in Cairo. This Is Not an Atlas seeks to inspire, to document the underrepresented, and to be a useful companion when becoming a counter-cartographer yourself.&#xD;

Abstract

Este volumen de la colección Fuentes presenta la edición de un manual de confesión escrito en Castilla en la segunda mitad del siglo XV, actualmente conservado en los fondos de la biblioteca de la Real Academia de la Historia de Madrid. El códice, compuesto por varios textos o fragmentos de textos, redactados algunos de ellos en lengua vernácula y otros en latín, es un valioso testimonio de la difusión y de la circulación de este tipo de opúsculos destinados a los confesores obligados, a partir del Concilio de Letrán IV (1215), a administrar al menos una vez al año el sacramento de penitencia. Su originalidad radica en el examen de conciencia ad status que presenta en su parte central. El estudio del manuscrito permite demostrar que se trata, al menos en parte, de un compendio de la importante suma escrita por Martín Pérez en 1316, el Libro de las confesiones. La edición del códice está precedida por un minucioso análisis de su contenido y de los procedimientos de abreviación, y propone algunas hipótesis acerca de los motivos que pudieron suscitar su realización. Prefacio de Fernando Gómez Redondo, Universidad de Alcalá de Henares Publicado con la ayuda de AILP (GDRE 671, CNRS). Cubierta: Detalle de un capitel del claustro de Santa María la Real de Nieva (Segovia, siglo XV). Créditos: Foto L. Thieulin.
