    Many theories have been put forward to explain the origins of right-handedness in humans. Here we present evidence that this preference may stem in part from a right hand advantage in grasping for feeding. Thirteen ...

    It has been suggested recently that the microcanonical entropy of a system may be accurately reproduced by including a logarithmic correction to the canonical entropy. In this paper we test this claim both analytically ...

    We study the solutions of certain congruences in different rings. The congruences include a^p-1 ≡ 1 (mod p^2); for integer a > 1 and prime p with p does not divide by a, and a^φ(m) ≡ 1 (mod m^2), for integer m with ...
  • Grahn, Darlene; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Education (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, 2006Education, 2006)
    This study was designed to assess paraeducators' duties, roles, and responsibilities and to develop a greater understanding of how they perceive their jobs and what support they would consider important for job improvement. ...
