    Digital filter synthesis computer program

    Get PDF
    Digital filter synthesis computer program expresses any continuous function of a complex variable in approximate form as a computational algorithm or difference equation. Once the difference equation has been developed, digital filtering can be performed by the program on any input data list

    Swirl-can combustor segment

    Get PDF
    Combustor produces uniform circumferential and radial combustor exit temperature profiles and high combustion efficiency at high temperature loads. Absence of diluent air entry ports eliminates stress concentration points, low pressure fuel alleviates nozzle fouling, and abundant air at all burning stages reduces smoke

    Ultrafast magnetophotoconductivity of semi-insulating gallium arsenide

    Get PDF
    The speed of opto-electronic switches is increased or decreased by the application of a magnetic field. This is achieved by inducing a carrier drift toward or away from the semiconductor surface, resulting in the enhancement or suppression of surface recombination. We establish that surface recombination plays a major role in determining the speed of the opto-electronic switch

    Turning the Prophetic into Civil Religion: Barack Obama\u27s March 4, 2007 Sermon in Selma, Alabama

    This essay analyzes Barack Obama’s March 4, 2007 sermon in Selma, Alabama that helped to position his candidacy for president in relationship to the civil rights movement. I argue that Obama’s sermon helped to move black theology from its prophetic orientation to serve the model of radiant whiteness that black liberation theologian James Cone attributes to U.S. civil religion

    Effects of Discrimination on Transgender Populations

    Get PDF
    Transgender individuals often face discrimination in multiple domains, such as in employment and healthcare settings, among others. This can affect their overall job satisfaction, job security, financial stability, physical and emotional wellbeing. Furthermore, past literature indicates that the prevalence of suicide, substance use/abuse, and mental illness, tend to be higher among gender-nonconforming populations. To enhance understanding of the above adverse issues and kinds of discriminatory practices that take place within these settings—and within greater society; this study integrates a social-ecological framework. Such an approach focuses on how stigma impacts individuals at various levels: structurally, interpersonally, and individually. Particularly, U.S. westernized culture has adopted a gender binary system. Present in mainstream education, the binary system perpetuates illiteracy of transgender knowledge within individuals, research, and learning environments by excluding the “other”. Inevitably, effecting laws, policies, and the behaviors of others. For instance, currently there are no outright federal protections against gender identity discrimination. Instead, individual states and localities govern laws, which are not all-embracing. Considered part of the structural level, these sanctions influence policies, protections, and outreach resources within workplace and healthcare organizations. Moreover, everyday interpersonal relations between individuals and their doctors, mental health providers, employers, employees, and/or other key players, are influenced by professional knowledge/awareness and laws. Together, these layers simultaneously affect how one responds at the individual level. The goal of this project is to make sense of these interrelated parts, as well as include potential ways in which stakeholders can support and advocate for transgender persons
