Three studies tested the hypothesis that babyfaced adolescent boys would compensate for the undesirable expectation that they will exhibit childlike traits by behaving contrary to it. Studies 1 and 2 revealed that babyfaced boys from middle- and lower class samples, including a sample of delinquents, showed higher academic achievement than their(More)
Examined agreement among secondary school teachers' behavior ratings for 66 adolescent boys with a history of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Behavior ratings consisted of the Teacher Report Form, Iowa/Abbreviated-Conners, and the Disruptive Behavior Disorders Rating Scale. Ratings from 2 to 5 teachers were collected for each adolescent.

Gamma-ray induced air showers are notable for their lack of muons, compared to hadronic showers. Hence, air shower arrays with large underground muon detectors can select a sample greatly enriched in photon showers by rejecting showers containing muons. IceCube is sensitive to muons with energies above ∼500 GeV at the surface, which provides an efficient(More)
Accurate measurement of neutrino energies is essential to many of the scientific goals of large-volume neutrino telescopes. The fundamental observable in such detectors is the Cherenkov light produced by the transit through a medium of charged particles created in neutrino interactions. The amount of light emitted is proportional to the deposited energy,(More)
We present the results of a first search for self-annihilating dark matter in nearby galaxies and galaxy clusters using a sample of high-energy neutrinos acquired in 339.8 days of live time during 2009/10 with the IceCube neutrino observatory in its 59-string configuration. The targets of interest include the Virgo and Coma galaxy clusters, the Andromeda(More)
In this paper we present the results of searches for periodic neutrino emission from a catalog of binary systems. Such modulation, observed in the photon flux, would be caused by the geometry of these systems. In the analysis, the period is fixed by these photon observations, while the phase and duration of the neutrino emission are treated as free(More)
A search for an excess of muon–neutrinos from dark matter annihilations in the Sun has been performed with the AMANDA–II neutrino telescope using data collected in 812 days of livetime between 2001 and 2006 and 149 days of livetime collected with the AMANDA–II and the 40–string configuration of IceCube during 2008 and early 2009. No excess over the expected(More)
We report the results of a multimessenger search for coincident signals from the LIGO and Virgo gravitational-wave observatories and the partially completed IceCube high-energy neutrino detector, including periods of joint operation between 2007–2010. These include parts of the 2005–2007 run and the 2009–2010 run for LIGO-Virgo, and IceCube's observation(More)
, as well as its erratum. The original document has not been modified, but the reader should use the effective area values from the erratum. We report on a search for extremely-high energy neutrinos with energies greater than 10 6 GeV using the data taken with the IceCube detector at the South Pole. The data was collected between April 2008 and May 2009(More)
