Iowa State University will lead the world in advancing the land-grant ideals of putting science, technology, and human creativity to work. Under the provisions of the Morrill Act of 1862, the State of Iowa desig- nated Iowa State as the nation's first land-grant institution. The Act estab- lished the land-grant ideals that higher education should be accessible to all, regardless of race, gender, or economic circumstance, and that the university should teach liberal arts and practical subjects to provide an outstanding quality of life for future citizens. Iowa State pioneered the nation's first extension service and remains a leader in realizing the promise of the land-grant vision. The university enjoys a number of internationally known and prestigious assets that provide a unique foundation for continued growth and productivity. Iowa State and the city of Ames are home to a U.S. Department of Energy national labo- ratory; five U.S. Department of Agriculture research laboratories; the nation's finest genomic-based agricultural breeding, health, and biotech- nology programs; world-renowned virtual reality, plant science, and bioeconomy institutes; and one of the nation's most successful tech- nology transfer programs. Major recent investments in new research and educational facilities and an outstanding tradition of cross-discipli- nary research bring all of Iowa State's colleges and departments together with global partners. The student experience emphasizes outstanding practical, international, and leadership opportunities, as well as a focus on student success. Iowa State alumni and friends are deeply engaged and invested in improving Iowa State. Over the next five years, Iowa State will continue to enhance its campus, capitalize on and leverage its strengths, and engage with partners to realize the goals of this Strategic Plan and create a better future for all.

Both culturally relevant pedagogy (Ladson-Billings, 2009) and culturally sustaining pedagogy (Paris, 2012) emphasise valuing students’ diverse cultures. Furthermore, culturally sustaining pedagogy “asks us to reimagine schools as sites where diverse, heterogeneous practices are not only valued but sustained” (Alim & Paris, 2017, p. 3). When we consider how teacher beliefs influence instructional practices (Cross, 2009), it would be hard to expect the teachers who assume EBs’ culture as something embarrassing will support them to sustain their culture. Opposed to many teachers’ assumption, recent research studies (e.g., Lee & Walsh, 2017; I et al., in press) found how enthusiastic and excited EBs are when they are asked about their culture and language. For example, Lee and Walsh (2017) introduced a high school mathematics class where culturally sustaining pedagogy was applied where “students responded enthusiastically by sharing their knowledge” (p. 195) and cultural exchange. The teacher in this study expressed their beliefs of the importance of connecting students’ experiences and cultures, including both historical and contemporary contexts of their home countries and provided opportunities to share student’s home language and culture. Our results imply that agreeing with a general statement, respecting EBs’ home culture, is not enough to completely change teachers’ deficit views on EBs’ culture. This is where our online course and future study need to further address and provide more pedagogical resources.

Huttenlocher and Horwitz, 2011), proliferation (Moreno-Layseca and Streuli, 2014; Shankar et al., 1993) and differentiation (Gomez-Lamarca et al., 2014; Wang et al., 2015a). A variety of methods have been developed to measure and map cellular force (Polacheck and Chen, 2016; Roca-Cusachs et al., 2017). To visualize the invisible cellular force at high resolution, one powerful strategy is to convert the molecular force transmitted by integrins to fluorescence using integrin tension sensors equipped with a dye-dye pair or a dye-quencher pair. Biomaterials such as spider silk peptide (Brenner et al., 2016), polyethylene glycol (Legant et al., 2010; Miller et al., 2010) and DNA (Blakely et al., 2014; Wang and Ha, 2013; Zhang et al., 2014) have been adopted for constructing the tension sensors. Among these materials, DNA attracted tremendous interest for its programmable tension sensing ability, matured chemistry for the conjugation with dyes and integrin ligands, and well-calibrated mechanical property (Cocco et al., 2001; Hatch et al., 2008). Both hairpin DNA (Blakely et al., 2014; Zhang et al., 2014) and double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) (Wang and Ha, 2013; Wang et al., 2018) were adopted for calibrating integrin tension and imaging cellular force. These tension sensors have been successfully applied to a broad scope of studies including platelet functions (Wang et al., 2018; Zhang et al., 2018), cell migration (Zhao et al., 2018) and immune cell activation (Liu et al., 2016), etc.

An attorney offers assistance, often where a third-party neutral arbiter is required to resolve conflicts. Many attorneys work in private practice, but others secure positions in the public sector, e.g., federal or state governmental agencies. A minimum of three years from an American Bar Approved (ABA) law school is required to earn a Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D) degree. A bachelor’s degree is required for admission to all accredited law schools. A student planning to enter law school may pursue an undergraduate degree in any discipline. The choice of the bachelor’s degree should reflect a student’s passion and personal interests and not be perceived as being the best degree to help them be admitted into law school. Appropriate courses should be completed that will enhance a student’s development of critical thinking skills, including analytical written and oral skills. An understanding of business, social sciences, and humanities is necessary to comprehend the pluralistic society within and outside of the United States. These courses should include accounting, management, political science, psychology, criminal justice, economics, philosophy, English literature, and history. The completion of these courses will provide students with a knowledge base and skill sets that will assist them with their preparation for law school. Courses in mathematics and statistics are also helpful in developing analytical skills. Advanced writing courses and speech communication courses will also serve students well.

Lighten Up Iowa: An Interdisciplinary, Collaborative Health Promotion Campaign

Lighten Up Iowa: An Interdisciplinary, Collaborative Health Promotion Campaign

In 2004, Lighten Up Iowa expanded to include a youth component, Go the Distance. Youth teams can only compete in the accumulated physical activity division; there is no weight loss division for youth. The team size for youth teams is 2-30 participants per team to accommodate school classes that may choose to participate. This program has been promoted among schools, 4-H clubs, scouts, church youth groups, and other youth organizations throughout the state. In the first year of Go the Distance, 220 teams of approximately 3,000 youth are participating. Youth teams averaging 250 miles per team member over the 4-month program (January - May) will be placed in a drawing for monetary prizes ($1000, $500, and $250). These will be awarded to the group or organization, which the team represents.

Ph.D. Concentrations in the Department of Sociology. Iowa State University Ames, Iowa

Expectations: The course and credit requirements for a concentration in social psychology will be determined by the student’s Ph.D. POS committee. All students in the area must take a preliminary exam (area 1 or area 2) in social psychology. It is recommend that students take Soc 520, available versions of Soc 525 and any topic seminars (Soc 698) related to social psychology. Since there are many interesting and relevant courses related to social psychology offered across the university, students should consult with social psychology area faculty about non-sociology courses that may contribute to their plan of study.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY AND SPECIAL EDUCATION. Program in the Education of Students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing STUDENT HANDBOOK

DEADLINE FOR FIRST ATTEMPT: the end of your first full year of classes. If you do not meet the minimum requirement by the end of your first year of classes, you will be required to write up a remediation plan with Dr. Easterbrooks. No one may enter final student teaching without first having passed the SLPI or ASLPI (or be a native user of the language) at the intermediate level (3). CAVEAT: Many people put this requirement off. You are in jeopardy of not being allowed to student teach if you do not have an intermediate rating. Your first priority in the program should be gaining your ASL skills. Some people need to take courses other than ASL I and ASL II in order to achieve this level. You may take these at GSU, GPC or at any program where you can find them. Consider a summer intensive session at Gallaudet University

Reversible tuning of the surface state in a pseudobinary Bi2(Te Se)3 topological insulator

Reversible tuning of the surface state in a pseudobinary Bi2(Te Se)3 topological insulator

The most likely suspect for the change of carrier concen- tration is the absorption of hydrogen. Even in the best vacuum system made of stainless steel, hydrogen is omnipresent. Upon cooling, it can condense onto the surface and donate electrons to the surface state. The binding energy of molecular hydrogen is quite low (∼50 meV). It is possible, however, that UV light used for ARPES is causing its dissociation at the surface to atomic hydrogen, which has a much larger binding energy. To validate our assertion about the origin of the shift, we introduced a small amount of hydrogen into our vacuum system with and without UV. The binding energy of the Kramers point during this process is shown in Fig. 3. At the beginning of measurement, without the additional hydrogen, the binding energy of the Kramers point increased as in the previous case and shifted downward by about 70 meV. We injected hydrogen with the UV light switched off for 10 s at 10 − 7 Torr at the time marked by the black arrow in Fig. 3. We did not observe any significant change after injection. Then we injected the same amount of hydrogen in the presence of UV light. Under those conditions the band shifted in energy by 36 meV, as measured immediately after injection. We repeated this process two more times. The drop is obvious each time, but with decreasing magnitude, indicating saturation of hydrogen on the surface of sample.
