    The Disney College Program allows for many opportunities, such as instructor lead offerings, experiential learning, career path development, and academic support. This internship gives us hands-on work in a global company but also helps us further ourselves in our career by providing networking opportunities and behind-the-scenes access to things others may never experience. As an intern in Food and Beverage, it was my job to provide not just food but experiences to guests from all around the world. It was my job not only to make sure guests left the restaurant locations happy, but also to maximize production. To do this, all workers had to perform at their highest potential

    Investigating the Relation Between Family Income and Barriers for Black Caregivers of Autistic Children

    Get PDF
    Black caregivers and families of autistic youth experience racial barriers (e.g., racial microaggressions, stigma;) and practical barriers (e.g., cost of treatment, long waitlists), when seeking treatment and diagnostic services (Lovelace et al., 2018). The current study aimed to ascertain whether family income influenced the racial and practical barriers experienced by a sample of Black caregivers of autistic youth (N = 101). Overall and item-level analyses were conducted to explore the relationship between racial and practical barriers experienced across Lower (below 39,693; n=32), Lower-Middle (39,69339,693-59,540; n=28), Middle-Upper (59,540to59,540 to 119,080; n=21), and Upper income groups ($119,080 and above; n=20). The findings revealed that there were no significant differences in severity of racial barriers and practical barriers experienced by families in these income groups. Ordinal regression analyses revealed differences in specific practical (e.g., no available transportation) and racial barriers (e.g., no community or educational resources were provided to them; they were too afraid to ask questions) between income groups. Ultimately, findings suggest that overall, Black caregivers of autistic youth are vulnerable to experiencing racial and practical barriers, and the severity of these barriers is not a function of household income. However, there may be specific barriers that families of certain incomes are more likely to experience

    An In-Network Approach for PMU Missing Data Recovery with Data Plane Programmability

    Get PDF
    Phasor measurement unit (PMU) systems often experience unavoidable missing and erroneous measurements, which undermine power system observability and operational effectiveness. Traditional solutions for recovering missing PMU data employ a centralized approach at the control center, resulting in lengthy recovery times due to data transmission and aggregation. In this work, we leverage P4-based programmable networks to expedite missing data recovery. Our approach utilizes the data plane programmability offered by P4 to present an in-network solution for PMU data recovery. We establish a data-plane pipeline on P4 switches, featuring a customized PMU protocol parser, a missing data detection module, and an auto-regressive model for efficient data recovery. This methodology is implemented in a container-based network emulator and comprehensively evaluated using real PMU data from a campus microgrid. Our results indicate an end-to-end delivery and recovery time for missing packets of approximately 3.96 ms, sufficiently supporting most real-time applications reliant on PMU data. With a 5% packet loss rate, the mean absolute percentage error for voltage magnitude is a mere 0.04%, and the phase angle error typically hovers around 0.06 degrees

    Storybooks as a Vehicle for Agricultural Education

    But, Mom?!, the illustrated children\u27s book manuscript was the result of this thesis project, which explored the utilization of storybooks to increase agricultural literacy among early elementary students. With a decline in farms across America and an aging farmer population, the need for agricultural literacy among Americans is urgent. This study portrays the significance of agricultural literacy and its role in bridging the gap between producers and consumers. Drawing upon Piaget\u27s cognitive development framework and educational theories, current research literature calls for the creation of more agriculturally accurate children\u27s storybooks. Through interviews with farmers and industry leaders, a narrative centered around an Arkansas strawberry farm and a female farmers\u27 farm-to-table journey emerges, with a special emphasis on labor issues facing some small farmers. The design process involved crafting an agriculturally accurate, non-stereotypical depiction of an Arkansas farm with engaging visuals. The manuscript draft serves as a tool for increasing agricultural literacy, in alignment with National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes and educational benchmarks. Recommendations include pilot testing the storybook in schools, collaborating with illustrators for publication, and further research on the impact of agriculturally accurate children\u27s literature. By harnessing the power of storytelling, this study proposes an innovative approach to cultivating agricultural literacy among young learners, fostering a deeper understanding of agriculture\u27s role in society

    Genocide Dressed in Jeans: Does Sharing a Narrative About the Uyghur Population Alter Opinions about Fast Fashion

    Get PDF
    One of the most cherished traditions on our University of Arkansas campus is the etching of names onto Senior Walk each year. On any given day, thousands of students stroll across these beautiful sidewalks as they venture to and from class. Dressed in the latest fashions from iconic brands such as Zara, H&M, and Nike, these students are far removed from the tragedy that has befallen the Uyghur population living in the Xinjiang province, 6,914 miles away. Evidence has been mounting that the Uyghur population has been suffering through massive displacement, forced labor camps, and atrocities that we cannot even fathom – all while producing the fast fashion products we see every day on our campus (Thanhauser, 2021). In a seminar that I took two summers ago while studying abroad, I learned about the Uyghur population, the inhumane treatment of these individuals, and the complicit role that many well-known companies have taken in this exploitation (Daniaud & Alwani, 2022). Numerous crimes against humanity are reported to be taking place in the Xinjiang region against the Uyghurs, but the torment travels internationally as the ethnic group is placed at the forefront of labor fueling the rapid-growing world consumers recognize as the world of fast fashion (Gan, 2020). While many companies have press-released their concern, they continue to use the cotton as well as finished products that are produced in these labor camps (Gan, 2020). A tale that is severely underreported yet extremely relevant. The alleged ethnic cleansing and forced labor of the Uyghur population has crossed my thoughts nearly daily since learning about the ongoing humanitarian crisis back in the summer of 2022. From social media video “hauls”, where people are sharing their mass purchases from the culprits of exploitation, to simple conversations with my fellow peers about their new pair of “sneakers I don’t care to wear out because they were so cheap,”. The lives behind the fabric consume my thoughts whilst being unbeknownst to others. For 675 days, since I first learned of this situation, this issue has stayed with me and has become the focal point for my research project, studying genocide dressed in jeans

    Functional Stereotyping of Women’s Self-Objectification as a Function of Life History and Body Fat

    Get PDF
    Individuals prioritize different goals as a function of stability in their environment, oftentimes leading people to prioritize reproduction in hostile ecologies. From this shift in priorities, perceivers could develop heuristics about how women may attempt to attract mates. Previous research suggests that higher levels of body fat are more attractive to men with a fast life history. With this awareness of men’s preferences in body fat, high-fat women from hostile ecologies could be expected to engage in more self-objectifying behavior in the service of mate attraction or attempting present themselves as objects of affection to men. This study tasked participants with reporting their perceptions of women described as living in a hopeful or desperate ecology (proxies for slow and fast life history, respectively) who exhibited either high or low levels of body fat. These evaluations tracked expectations of these women to objectify themselves. Women were perceived as more self-objectifying at low levels of body fat. However, no effects emerged as a function of ecology. These results reflect a potential implicit theory from perceivers about how body fat shapes expectations of women’s reproductive strategies while indicating limitations in ecological cues in tracking self-objectifying tendencies
