    Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (Luke 2:10–11) The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined. (Isaiah 9:2) Heaven is no further away as when angels appeared to shepherds in the field

    The Impact of Financial Security and Extracurriculars on Seventh Day Adventist College Students\u27 Academic Success and Mental Well-Being

    Get PDF
    The presentation covers the rationale, methodology, and results of a mixed-methods study designed to answer the following research question: Does the relationship between a Southern Adventist University student’s financial security and involvement in extracurricular activities influence academic success and mental well-being? Data will be collected via a survey and individual in-depth interviews from a convenience sample of students from Southern Adventist University. Finally, it discusses implications for practice or policy change

    CodeBase Relationship Visualizer: Visualizing Relationships Between Source Code Files

    Get PDF
    Understanding relationships between files and their directory structure is a fundamental part of the software development process. However, it can be hard to grasp these relationships without a convenient way to visualize how files are connected and how they fit into the directory structure of the codebase. In this paper we describe CodeBase Relationship Visualizer (CBRV), a Visual Studio Code extension that interactively visualizes the relationships between files. CBRV displays the relationships between files as arrows superimposed over a diagram of the codebase\u27s directory structure. CBRV comes bundled with visualizations of the stack trace path, a dependency graph for Python codebases, and a hyperlink graph for HTML and Markdown. CBRV also exposes an API that can be used to create visualizations for multiple different relationships. CBRV is a convenient and easy-to-use tool that offers a big picture perspective on the relationships within a codebase

    This project procedurally generates an infinite wilderness populated with deterministic hiking trails. Our approach recognizes that hiking trails depend on contextual information beyond the location of the path itself. To address this, we implemented a layered procedural system that orchestrates the generation process. This helps ensure the availability of contextual data at each stage. The first layer handles terrain generation, establishing the foundational landscape upon which trails will traverse. Subsequent layers handle point of interest identification and selection, trail network optimization through proximity graphs, and efficient pathfinding across the terrain. A notable feature of our approach is the deterministic nature of the hiking trails. This characteristic removes the need for storing trail or terrain data, as this technique regenerates the same terrain and paths from any starting point and approach direction. The result is an immersive, boundlessly explorable wilderness

    Expression and Characterization of Virus-like Particles Displaying Extra Cellular Loops Of Outer Membrane Proteins Of Treponema Pallidum As A Potential Syphilis Vaccine Platform

    The spirochete Treponema pallidum is a global, sexually transmitted human pathogen, which causes the multistage infectious disease syphilis. During the past several decades, various attempts have been made to develop a vaccine that protects against syphilitic infection. T. pallidum’s OMP repertoire includes a family of four outer membrane factors (OMFs) for efflux protein, each characterized by trimeric structure and bipartite membrane topology. Virus-like particles (VLPs) are composed of bacteriophage structural proteins that have successfully been used to display various foreign epitopes for immunization. In this project, we produced VLP extra-cellular loops (ECLs) from two T. pallidum OMFs: Tp0968 and Tp0969 to characterize antigens targeting T. pallidum. A positive result would bring us one-step closer to developing of an effective vaccine for syphilis, a global public health problem

    Adverse Childhood Experiences, Resilience, and Student Engagement in a University Statistics Course

    Engagement is a fundamental aspect of the learning process. Exploring the role of outside factors on student engagement offers potential for eduators to tailor their pedagogies to meet the need of students who have experienced trauma. Researchers over the past couple of decades have begun exploring the role of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on a whole host of different fields (health, education, etc.). This study examines the potential role that ACES and resilience may play in a student’s engagement levels within a university statistics course. Participants were college students from a university in the southeastern United States. Two survesy, an ACE inventory (Child Experiences Survey) and a resilience inventory (Child and Youth Resiliency Measure), were completed by each participant and from this group a selected number (25) were asked to participate in an interview. Analysis from the interviews pointed to a possible link between resilience, ACEs, and different aspects of engagement (affective, behavioral, and cognitive). This paper will discuss these findings
