This study is the only comprehensive survey to date of the text communication preferences of deaf people who cannot or prefer not to use voice telephony in the United Kingdom. Respondents covered a wide age range, became deaf or hard of hearing at different ages, and had different communication preferences. Generally, respondents used several forms of text(More)
Although cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) have been extensively targeted in anti cancer drug design, no CDK inhibitor has yet been approved for use in cancer therapy. While this may in part be because inhibitors clinically evaluated to date have not demonstrated clean inhibition of a single CDK, another contributing factor is an apparent latent functional(More)
Since its launch in 1999, the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) has made over 4900 observations of some 2500 individual targets. The data are reduced by the principal investigator team at the Johns Hopkins University and archived at the Multimission Archive at STScI (MAST). The data reduction software package, called CalFUSE, has evolved(More)
Hard X-ray light curves and spectral parameters from our analysis of X-ray data of five AM Her type systems – V2301 Oph, V1432 Aql, EP Draconis, GG Leonis, & V834 Cen, and one intermediate polar – TV Col, observed using the Rossi X− ray T iming Explorer (RXTE) satellite are presented. A new improved ephemeris has been derived for V2301 Oph using the(More)
We present a spectral analysis of the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) spectra of the eclipsing double-line spectroscopic binary EM Cygni, a Z Cam DN system. The FUSE spectrum, obtained in quiescence, consists of 4 individual exposures (orbits): two exposures, at orbital phases φ ∼ 0.65 and φ ∼ 0.90, have a lower flux; and two exposures, at(More)
A χ̃ analysis of standard model accretion disk synthetic spectrum fits to combined FUSE and STIS spectra of V3885 Sagittarius, on an absolute flux basis, selects a model that accurately represents the observed SED. Calculation of the synthetic spectrum requires the following system parameters. The cataclysmic variable secondary star period-mass relation(More)
This paper examines a variety of forms of evidence used to find the effectiveness of vocational rehabilitation interventions. We begin by looking at general unemployment literature and then study the detailed findings of a research project that examined the employment experiences of disabled people, carried out by one of the authors. We then report on a(More)
We present an analysis of the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE) spectra of the little-known southern nova-like BB Doradus. The spectrum was obtained as part of our Cycle 8 FUSE survey of high declination nova-like stars. The FUSE spectrum of BB Dor, observed in a high state, is modeled with an accretion disk with a very low inclination (possibly(More)
V794 Aql was observed in a high state with the Hubble Space Telescope Space Telescope Imaging Spectrograph (HST STIS) on 2003 August 28, and with the Far Ultraviolet Spectroscopic Explorer (FUSE ) on 2004May 13. We present here a spectral analysis of the FUSE andHST STIS spectra. For a 0.9M , the best fit is an accretion disk with a mass accretion rate Ṁ(More)
