    Description: Two laboratory and two randomized field experiments tested a psychological intervention designed to improve students' scores on high-stakes exams and to increase our understanding of why pressure-filled exam situations undermine some students' performance. We expected that sitting for an important exam leads to worries about the situation and its consequences that undermine test performance. We tested whether having students write down their thoughts about an upcoming test could improve test performance. The intervention, a brief expressive writing assignment that occurred immediately before taking an important test, significantly improved students' exam scores, especially for students habitually anxious about test taking. Simply writing about one's worries before a high-stakes exam can boost test scores.

    Description: I have wanted to be a scientist ever since I was a little girl. I got the idea from a television program called 3-2-1 Contact , where I watched a young African-American girl solve problems. I saw my reflection in her and was transfixed. As time passed and my science career progressed, I saw that

    Description: What is the physical basis of memory? What does it take to retrieve a memory in the brain? What would it take to activate or erase memories? In the early 20th century, the German zoologist Richard Semon coined the term “engram” to denote the physical manifestation of a memory in the brain (1). Two decades...

    Description: To link to full-text access for this article, visit this link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jbusres.2012.01.012 Byline: Edward Ramirez Keywords: Stakeholder theory; Qualitative analysis; Sustainable orientation; Adoption factors Abstract: Guided by stakeholder theory, a pair of exploratory studies identifies factors that influence firms to adopt an environmentally-friendly approach to conducting business, while providing insight into consumers' perceptions of such firms. An analysis of twenty in-depth interviews and a qualitative survey yields a conceptual model, indicating that such firms are motivated by governmental intervention, organizational values, and the potential benefits that can accrue as a result of implementation. Moreover, consumers view sustainably-oriented firms as maintaining procedures, developing products, and portraying themselves accordingly. These findings are relevant to academicians as they describe the underlying rationale for such behaviors and outline a novel conceptualization of the construct, thus invigorating future research. The results are also useful for firms as they shed light on sustainability efforts that are salient to the consumer and provide support for implementation, thereby encouraging the joint maximization of social and economic objectives.

    Description: Byline: Carlos Ramirez Keywords: audit profession; Boltanski; institutional work; quality control; Thevenot; United Kingdom Abstract This paper contributes to the analysis of institutional work by looking at situations of perceived injustice that institutional change can create. To this end, the paper mobilizes the work of Boltanski and Thevenot on orders of worth to analyse the consequences for a professional body of a shift in institutional logics towards more accountability. The feeling of injustice experienced - and voiced - by some members of the largest British institute of auditors, the ICAEW, after it set up and operated a quality monitoring unit, serves to illustrate how change can turn awry when equity in a community of peers is threatened, and how institutional work can remedy such a situation by restoring a sense of worth in the community.

    Description: The efficiency of different technological processes where nanoporous carbons are used depends on their storage capacity and an appropriate gas transport. Different experimental and theoretical works that relate storage to global structural parameters of the solid such as specific surface area ( ) or total pore volume ( ) can be found in literature. The structure–transport relationships have been less studied. The combined use of the truncated pore network model (TPNM) and the kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) method is proposed in this work to find hydrogen and methane effective self-diffusivities ( ) and to delve into those relationships. It was found that for Knudsen and free molecular diffusion in the simulated materials, the / vs. graphic nearly follows a power law. The KMC/TPNM approach was also used to predict the self-diffusion coefficients of hydrogen in Vulcan XC-72 and of methane in a carbon aerogel. The obtained values are within the expected range. KCM/TPNM is computationally fast and it allows a study of the diffusion synchronously and globally in the network, avoiding thus its fractionation in single pores and the use of just one geometric model to describe the porous spaces. ► KMC/TPNM allowed to study diffusion in materials with different structural parameters. ► Under Knudsen and free molecular diffusion / – relationships followed a power law. ► of H in Vulcan and of CH in a carbon aerogel were obtained by simulation.

    Description: A family of racemic and enantiopure indium complexes 1-11 bearing bulky chiral diaminoaryloxy ligands, H(NNO(R)), were synthesized and fully characterized. Investigation of both the mono- and the bis-alkoxy-bridged complexes [(NNO(R))InX](2)[μ-Y][μ-OEt] (5, R = (t)Bu, X = Y = Cl; 8, R = Me, X = I, Y = OEt) by variable temperature, 2D NOESY, and PGSE NMR spectroscopy confirmed dinuclear structures in solution analogous to those obtained by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. The dinuclear complexes in the family were highly active catalysts for the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactide (LA) to form poly(lactic acid) (PLA) at room temperature. In particular, complex 5 showed living polymerization behavior over a large molecular weight range. A detailed investigation of catalyst stereoselectivity showed that, although (R,R/R,R)-5 is highly selective for l-LA, only atactic PLA is obtained in the polymerization of racemic LA. No such selectivity was observed for complex 8. Importantly, the selectivities obtained for the ROP of racemic LA with (R,R/R,R)-5 and (R,R/R,R)-8 are different and, along with kinetics investigations, suggest a dinuclear propagating species for these complexes.

Results indicate that these systems reflect the territory's demographic and agrarian history and that local gender systems have a positive influence on women's participation in the labor market, though this is not accompanied by decreased salary discrimination in the salmon industry. The implication is that territory-specific and gender factors must be considered in national employment policies.
