The Student Government Association SGA approved changes to the bylaws regarding the Registered Student Government Organization RSO appropriations process. Chris Thurman, senate representative for College of Arts and Science, said the changes were adopted to prevent confusion for RSO’s regarding the application process for fund allocations and to streamline the ranking committee’s process. Earlier this year the EKU Grappling Club appealed SGA’s denial to their request for appropriations which resulted in a hearing and appropriations redistributions to all RSO’s. The EKU Grappling Club had submitted their application online and understood it to be complete however the Ranking Committee claimed the application was missing information and is ultimately why the EKU Grappling Club was denied funds.

Sensor-based group activity recognition. Data mining based approach to activity recognition. Mining Emerging Patterns for Recognizing Activities of Multiple Users in Pervasive Computing. Sensor-based group activity recognition. Recognition of group activities is fundamentally different from single, or multi-user activity recognition in that the goal is to recognize the behavior of the group as an entity, rather than the activities of the individual members within it.

*  Anthropocene
Climate Change. Land-use & Land-cover Change. The Anthropocene defines Earth's most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, or anthropogenic, based on overwhelming global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric and other earth system processes are now altered by humans. The Anthropocene is distinguished as a new period either after or within the Holocene, the current epoch, which began approximately 10,000 years ago about 8000 BC with the end of the last glacial period. To justify the identification of a new Anthropocene epoch, it must therefore be demonstrated that evidence of anthropogenic global change is present at such a level that it can be distinguished using geologic indicators despite natural variability in these across the Holocene. The most commonly cited and readily measured global change associated with humans is the rise of greenhouse gases, especially carbon dioxide and methane, around the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, together with the associate...

It is the appropriations laws and the laws establishing entitlement programs that provide the legal authority for the Federal Government and its agencies to obligate and spend funds. For discretionary programs, Congress and the President must act each year to provide spending authority. For mandatory programs, they may act to change the spending that current laws require. Discretionary spending, which accounted for about 35 percent of all Federal spending in fiscal year 2002, is what the President and Congress must decide to spend for the next year, and is provided through the 13 annual appropriations bills. In the Department of Education, discretionary spending constituted approximately 88 percent of the 2002 budget and includes nearly all programs, the major exceptions being student loans and Vocational Rehabilitation State Grants.

For a Leftist Appropriation of the European Legacy By Slavoj Zizek. Introduction Schelling's statement according to which, `the beginning is the negation of that which begins with it', fits perfectly the itinerary of Jacques Ranciere who began as a strict Althusserian with a contribution to Lire le Capital and, then, after a violent gesture of distantiation La lecon d'Althusser, followed his own path, which focuses on what he perceived as the main negative aspect of Althusser's thought: his theoreticist elitism, his insistence on the gap which forever separates the universe of scientific cognition from that of ideological mis recognition into which the common masses are immersed. Against this stance, which allows theoreticians to 'speak for' the masses of people, to know the truth about them, Ranciere endeavours again and again to elaborate the contours of those magic, v...

The House Appropriations Committee marked up the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for FY2013 this week. The biggest complaint I hear about the federal government is how the EPA is creating economic uncertainty and killing jobs, said Simpson. Throughout the Obama Administration the EPA has seen the largest funding increases in this bill, so it should come as no surprise that they are experiencing the largest cuts. The Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for FY2013 includes a 17% cut from current levels. The bill includes a number of provisions intended to address EPA actions that have created uncertainty in our economy and threaten future economic growth, including: A provision prohibiting the EPA from changing the definition of navigable waterways under the Clean Water Act; A provision requiring agencies to make ...

GEN Exclusives More » Sep 27, 2011 FDA’s Appeal for Budget Hike Will Have to Succumb to Budget Reality The Senate was kinder than the House, but both went well below what the agency appealed for. FDA was the only nonsecurity agency to see any increase in funding in the Agriculture-Rural-FDA bill. In approving a $17.25 billion Agriculture-Rural-FDA budget, House Appropriations voted to spend $283.57 million, or 11.6%, below the current agency budget, leaving it with $2.163 billion for FY 12. Agriculture-Rural-FDA is one of 12 appropriations bills that comprise the federal budget. The House panel approved a total $1.49 billion in user fees, the biggest share of which would be $856 million in prescription drug user fees. The Senate panel agreed that FDA should collect $1.393 billion in user fees, of which $702 million would come from prescription drug companies. Prescription drug fees accounted for a total $573 million of the roughly $922 million in total user fees collected in FY 10. The following year it expec...

Big Oil and Big Coal have fought solar, wind, all-electric vehicles, biomass, geothermal, that entire revolution because they know that it will eat into their profits. The Republicans, responding to the oil and coal industry, say this is our chance to kill the revolution that makes it possible to have vehicles go 50, 60, 80, 100 miles a gallon without oil, no oil, that makes it possible for us to have wind and solar generate the electricity that will fuel those vehicles without sending greenhouse gases up into the atmosphere, which is changing our climate and leading to these storms, leading to these floods, leading to these disasters that then needs FEMA, need the relief that we give to these families. So they take the chance, they take the opportunity to kill the very programs which are the solution to these disaster...

*  House farm bill timing remains unclear as holiday recess looms
... From the National Association of Wheat Growers. It will be some time before the House farm bill can be considered again as Congress will be on recess next week for the July 4 holiday. The House of Representatives is not likely to take the Agriculture Appropriations to the floor this week, instead choosing to focus on the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development THUD appropriations bill, student loan and highway bills, and the contempt of Congress measure against U.S. This means it will be some time before the bill can be considered again as Congress will be on recess next week for the July 4 holiday. House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas R-Okla. has promised that the uncertainty over the appropriations will not affect the House Ag Committee s July 11 plans to markup their version of the farm bill. The THUD appropriations bill may have been delayed due to uncertainty surrounding Congress s Highway Bill. Looking toward the House legislative calendar, timing is unclear on when the farm bill ...

(1/299) Global climate change.

Most of the last 100,000 years or longer has been characterized by large, abrupt, regional-to-global climate changes. Agriculture and industry have developed during anomalously stable climatic conditions. New, high-resolution analyses of sediment cores using multiproxy and physically based transfer functions allow increasingly confident interpretation of these past changes as having been caused by "band jumps" between modes of operation of the climate system. Recurrence of such band jumps is possible and might be affected by human activities.  (+info)

(2/299) Clinical characteristics of unexplained sudden cardiac death in Korea.

In Western countries, sudden cardiac death (SCD) is closely related to coronary artery disease, but in Korea the clinical characteristics of SCD are not well determined. Over a 4-year period (June 1995 to May 1999), 186 cases of SCD, ranging in age from 16 to 75 years, were admitted to the Chonnam National University Hospital. In 82 (44.1%) of these, neither symptoms nor evidence of structural heart disease was found and so their clinical characteristics were investigated. There were 66 (80.5%) men and 16 (19.5%) women (male/female ratio = 4.1:1). The mean age was 50 +/- 14 years: 19 (23.2%) were in their 40s, 21 (25.6%) in their 50s, and 17 (20.7%) in their 60s. The time of circulatory collapse witnessed in 68 cases of SCD showed 2 peaks: between midnight and 03.00h (n=16, 23.5%) and between 09.00h and midday (n=15, 22.1%). Unexplained SCD occurred at home in 48 (64.9%) cases and on the street in 12 (16.2%); it occurred during normal daily routine activity in 23 (39.6%) and during sleep in 15 (25.9%). Thirty-three patients (40.2%) experienced various prodromal symptoms, including chest discomfort (n=13, 15.9%) and dyspnea (n=8, 9.8%). The electrocardiogram taken on arrival recorded asystole in 65 (79.3%) and ventricular fibrillation in 17 (20.7%). Idiopathic ventricular fibrillation was diagnosed in 14 (10 men, 4 women; 45 +/- 11 years) of 21 patients who recovered spontaneous circulation. Five (6.1%) patients were discharged alive, and an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator was implanted in 2. Unexplained SCD is common in Korea and develops predominantly in middle-aged males around midnight or in the late morning usually with no prodromal symptoms (59.8%). Idiopathic ventricular fibrillation is thought to be one of the important causes.  (+info)

(3/299) A genetic analysis of the Epworth Sleepiness Scale in 1560 World War II male veteran twins in the NAS-NRC Twin Registry.

Responses to the eight-item Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) obtained from 1560 World War II male veteran twin pairs [818 monozygotic (MZ), 742 dizygotic (DZ)] were analysed to determine the extent to which genetic influences are involved in self-reported daytime sleepiness in the elderly. Average ESS score (+/- SD) in this sample was 7.1 +/- 3.9, range 0--24. More than half of the twins (65%--67%) reported a moderate to high chance of falling asleep while lying down to rest; fewer than 3% admitted that this would occur while sitting and talking to someone or while stopped in traffic. Daytime sleepiness was not associated with age but was significantly and positively associated with obesity. The intraclass twin correlation on ESS scores was 0.39 in MZ pairs and 0.21 in DZ pairs (both P < 0.001). Structural equation modeling of the observed variance-covariance matrices for MZ and DZ twins estimated the heritability of ESS to be 38% (95% confidence interval 33%--44%). Environmental influences not shared by twin brothers accounted for the remaining variance in daytime sleepiness. A reasonable interpretation of the heritability of ESS in this healthy cohort of elderly male twins is a genetic susceptibility for disordered breathing during sleep.  (+info)

(4/299) Health-related quality of life in narcolepsy.

Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder characterised by symptoms of excessive daytime sleepiness and cataplexy. The aim of this study was to describe the health-related quality of life of people with narcolepsy residing in the UK. The study comprised a postal survey of 500 members of the UK narcolepsy patient association, which included amongst other questions the UK Short Form 36 (SF-36), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and the Ullanlinna Narcolepsy Scale (UNS). A total of 305 questionnaires were included in the final analysis. The results showed that the subjects had significantly lower median scores on all eight domains of the SF-36 than normative data, and scored particularly poorly for the domains of role physical, energy/vitality, and social functioning. The BDI indicated that 56.9% of subjects had some degree of depression. In addition, many individuals described limitations on their education, home, work and social life caused by their symptoms. There was little difference between the groups receiving different types of medication. This study is the largest of its type in the UK, although the limitations of using a sample from a patient association have been recognised. The results are consistent with studies of narcolepsy in other countries in demonstrating the extensive impact of this disorder on health-related quality of life.  (+info)

(5/299) Ecological degradation in protected areas: the case of Wolong Nature Reserve for giant pandas.

It is generally perceived that biodiversity is better protected from human activities after an area is designated as a protected area. However, we found that this common perception was not true in Wolong Nature Reserve (southwestern China), which was established in 1975 as a "flagship" protected area for the world-renowned endangered giant pandas. Analyses of remote sensing data from pre- and post-establishment periods indicate that the reserve has become more fragmented and less suitable for giant panda habitation. The rate of loss of high-quality habitat after the reserve's establishment was much higher than before the reserve was created, and the fragmentation of high-quality habitat became far more severe. After the creation of the reserve, rates of habitat loss and fragmentation inside the reserve unexpectedly increased to levels that were similar to or higher than those outside the reserve, in contrast to the situation before the reserve was created.  (+info)

(6/299) Differential effects of activity and climate on onset of subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Conflicting findings of the effect of climate on onset of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) may result from the influence of strenuous activities which can trigger aneurysmal rupture independent of climatological factors. The effect of climate and patient activities on onset of SAH were analyzed. The clinical records of 786 consecutive patients with aneurysmal SAH admitted to our hospital for 10 years were reviewed. Activities at onset were categorized according to the intensity of strain at onset. Seasonal variation, circannual cyclic trend, and association with 90 meteorological factors were examined in each category and the results were compared between categories. Bimonthly occurrence in the light strain group showed a significant seasonal variation and cyclic trend with two peaks in early spring and fall, whereas no significant trend was detected in the overall patients and in the heavy strain group. The significant meteorological factors were global solar radiation, sunshine hours, changes in mean and minimum temperature and mean vapor pressure from the previous day, and minimum pressure in the previous 7 days. Lower global solar radiation in the light strain group was associated with onset with the lowest p value (p = 0.0046). No factors were significant in the heavy strain group. There is some evidence of the possible influence of climatological factors on onset of SAH without strenuous activity. Strenuous activity seems to affect onset more strongly, which masks any effect of climate.  (+info)

(7/299) A multispecies overkill simulation of the end-Pleistocene megafaunal mass extinction.

A computer simulation of North American end-Pleistocene human and large herbivore population dynamics correctly predicts the extinction or survival of 32 out of 41 prey species. Slow human population growth rates, random hunting, and low maximum hunting effort are assumed; additional parameters are based on published values. Predictions are close to observed values for overall extinction rates, human population densities, game consumption rates, and the temporal overlap of humans and extinct species. Results are robust to variation in unconstrained parameters. This fully mechanistic model accounts for megafaunal extinction without invoking climate change and secondary ecological effects.  (+info)

(8/299) Energy costs of standard activities among Indian adults.

OBJECTIVES: To estimate the energy cost of resting (RMR), sitting and standing for urban Indian adults and compare these estimates with the reported values. DESIGN: Energy costs were measured using oxylog while body fat was estimated using equipment (HBF300, OMRON Corporation, Japan) that works on the principle of bioelectrical impedance, for 24 men and 40 women, aged 20-50 y, engaged in sedentary activities. SETTINGS: Agharkar Research Institute, Pune, India. RESULTS: Mean energy cost (kJ/min) of resting (RMR), sitting and standing were significantly (P<0.01, for all) higher for men (4.01+/-0.42, 5.0+/-0.72 and 5.74+/-0.69, respectively) than women (3.54+/-0.28, 4.03+/-0.41 and 4.35+/-0.52, respectively). Gender difference increased with the level of activity, from 13% for RMR to 32% for standing. These differences reduced when adjusted (using analysis of covariance) for body weight and became non-significant on adjusting for fat-free mass (FFM) in the case of RMR and sitting activity. The measured values of energy cost (absolute and per kg weight) for these activities were similar to African subjects but lower compared to Asian or European subjects for both sexes. The stepwise regression analysis done separately by sexes showed weight (29%) in men and body mass index (44%) in women to be the best predictors of RMR, while regression analysis for combined sexes indicated FFM and height as predictors of RMR (r(2)=56%, P<0.01). If means to estimate body fat were not available, RMR could best be predicted with BMI and sex as predictors (r(2)=55%; P<0.01). This was mainly due to the fact that the sex differences in our population were more prominent in FFM than that in BMI. Our observations thus indicate the need to develop prediction equations separately for different populations owing to differences in their body compositions, especially in fat mass (FM) or FFM. CONCLUSION: The energy costs of activities were associated with body composition, especially with absolute fat-free mass, which may vary even with the same body fat percentage. Therefore, there is a need to develop separate prediction equations for different communities.  (+info)

I'm not into the gym that much, but I do fun activities to stay fit. I love squash (or tennis in the summer) because its a fantastic cardio workout and you can play it all year round. I also rock climb at an indoor club in the winter too, and it supplements the weight training. I do 10 minute pilates workouts in my house if I'm not feeling up to going out to work out or don't have the time. 

In the summer theres more options, like walking, hiking, biking, rollerblading, swimming etc.


How much human and synthetic hair is in a blended extensions?


I recently purchased hair extensions. I didn't have much cash on me to purchase human hair so I bought human hair + blended. Which means it's human hair and synthetic hair mixed together. I was wondering if it were more synthetic hair or more human hair. I can straightening it if I like to, but I just have to set it on low heat. Is there more human hair or more synthetic hair in this? Or is it equal?
----------

Hello,
  If you are having to set your flat iron on a low setting then there is more synthetic hair then human.  If you look at the price difference between the "all" human hair extensions and the mix that should give you an idea.  Just be super careful using hot tools on your extensions because if there is a lot of synthetic hair you run the risk of actually melting the hair.  Use the lowest setting possible and try not to style it everyday try doing it every other or every 2 days you shouldn't need to wash/clean it more then that.


How many organized activities do your children do per season?


I have 2 kids and they usually do 2 activities, each, from Sept to May. This year one of my daughters wants to add an additional activity to her evenings, but I think it may be just *too much* for a 6 year old (she'll be 6 soon).
How many do your child do at a time and how well does that work?
To answer the question, both of them do dance and cheer. She wants to add guitar lessons.
Oh, and dance is 90 minutes per week and cheer is 4 hours (2 hour sessions, twice per week).
----------

3 activities does sound like a lot for a 6 yr old. I like for my children to do 2 activities per year also, one physical (sports) and another like music lessons, painting lessons, chess club ect. so that they're well rounded and they get to meet children with different interests and have a variety of friends. 
If she can already handle two physical activities then I'm sure she could handle guitar lessons. The thing is, that she has to practice and with the other things going on then she may not have the time outside of her lesson to do that. Remind her that its hard work and she has to practice just like everything else. That takes away from time with friends, ect. If she still wants to go then you could let her try but dont get hard on her if she starts slacking at one of her activities, just ask her which one she'd like to give up and then dont make that mistake in the future. 
And remember - overachievers have just as hard a time in the real world as underachievers. =]
