This year’s Knight Madness brought a strong dose of cheering crowds, school spirit and plenty of prizes, but students got an added surprise at Thursday’s event—the introduction of a newly clad Arcadia Knight! As the lights dimmed down and the rumble of anticipation began, Arcadia’s very own mascot ran out to cheer on the members of the women’s and men’s basketball teams.

The event, which is hosted by Residence Hall Council (RHC), began with the faculty/staff versus students game. For second year in a row, the faculty/staff team was defeated by the students. The final score was 8-6. Read more. View photos.

M.B.A. Grad Working for Global Firm

Nymie Brown '08M.B.A.
Nyime Brown '08M.B.A.

After learning some important business skills from Dr. Tony Muscia, Executive Director of Arcadia’s M.B.A. with an International Perspective, Nyime Brown '08M.B.A. has landed a dream job. She works as a Global Trainee for Skanska, a global engineering and construction firm.

“Dr. Muscia taught me not only that preparation is power, but perception, in most cases, is everything,” says Brown. “Be yourself, of course, but it’s all about the presentation of the package.”

It is with this knowledge that Brown landed her current job. Muscia teaches his students that men and women perceive colors differently and these colors affect emotions. Before her interview with Skanska, Brown planned to wear a brown suit, which is a color that signifies friendliness. She changed her mind at the last minute—remembering that while in black, women tend to exude more confidence. Read more.

Two Acts of Incivility Reported Last Week

Civility LogoTwo acts of incivility were reported over the last week. During the evening of Nov. 4, there was an act of incivility reported in a residence hall. A staff member overheard a discussion that included racist language. When those speaking saw the staff member, they left the space. While this incident does not include behavior that violates our Code of Conduct, it does interfere with the ability of all members of our community to feel safe on campus. This is the third uncivil act this semester. When there is an act of incivility, the Civility Flag, located between the Dining Complex and the Landman Library, is lowered for five days.

On Nov. 3, an act of incivility was discovered on University property including a picnic table. Racist and other remarks were written. The remarks were reported to Public Safety by a staff member and have been removed. The individual(s) who wrote the remarks have not been identified at this time. Anyone with information about these incidents should contact either the Director of Public Safety, 215-572-2187, or the Dean of Students, 215-572-2932. Read more.

They needed to be in good academic standing and would be entering either their junior or senior year in the fall of 2008. The participating students would each receive a $3,000 stipend. Read more.

Grady Publishes ‘Shakespeare and Impure Aesthetics’

Dr. Hugh Grady
Grady

Dr. Hugh Grady, Professor of English, published the article “Shakespeare and Impure Aesthetics: The Case of A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” appeared in Shakespeare Quarterly, Volume 59, Number 3 (Fall 2008), pp. 273-301. In this article, Grady argues that Shakespeare studies generally has avoided the idea of "the aesthetic" over the last 25 years, but a number of developments suggest that a return to aesthetics is now on the critical agenda. His essay argues that "impure aesthetics"—borrowed primarily from Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin and emphasizing the relation of alterity between art and its "other" and the influence of erotic desire, the commodification of the lifeworld in capitalism, and art's role in ameliorating the mutilation of nature produced in modernity is a promising form for the revival to take. According to Grady, Shakespeare himself seems to share at least some of the ideas of "impure aesthetics," especially in A Midsummer Night's Dream. The play is one of Shakespeare's fullest explorations of aesthetic ideas, and it is thus a meta-aesthetic drama—as well as a development of the genre of comedy to unprecedented levels of aesthetic complexity and self-reflection.

Appelbaum Publishes ‘Embracing Mathematics’ Textbook

Dr. Peter Appelbaum
Appelbaum

Dr. Peter Appelbaum, Professor of Education, co-wrote the textbook Embracing Mathematics: On Becoming a Teacher and Changing with Mathematics, which was published by Routledge this past summer. Written with David Scott Allen, a math teacher at Pennbrook Middle School in North Wales, this alternative textbook for math education courses asks teachers and prospective teachers to reflect on their relationships with mathematics and how these relationships influence their teaching and the experiences of their students. In addition to covering basic topics, this book also introduces novel approaches, such as psychoanalytic perspectives and post-modern conceptions of curriculum. In her review of Embracing Mathematics, Dr. Corinne Hahn, President of the International Commission for Study and Improvement of Mathematics Teaching, notes: “This is a book that helps the reader think about his/her practice. It guides teachers in a quest for teaching methods that will enable students to develop a critical mind, which should be the goal of all mathematics education.”

Stackhouse Publishes in Journal of Neurotrauma

Dr. Scott Stackhouse
Stackhouse

Dr. Scott Stackhouse, Assistant Professor of Physical Therapy, published the article “Effect of Cervical Dorsolateral Funiculotomy on Reach-to-Grasp Function in the Rat,” which appeared in the August 2008 issue of the Journal of Neurotrauma (25:1039-1047). Cervical spinal cord injury can severely impair reaching and grasping ability, and several descending systems have been implicated in the control of reach-to-grasp movements. The primary aim of a study undertaken by Stackhouse and his co-authors from Drexel’s College of Medicine was to characterize further the forelimb deficits associated with a cervical dorsolateral funiculotomy, which ablates the rubrospinal tract but spares the dorsal and ventral corticospinal tract in the rat. They concluded that the deficits in forelimb function after cervical dorsolateral funiculotomy are detected using sensitive assessment of reach-to-grasp function, but not gross function tests such as preference for forelimb use. They suggest that a staircase test would be the preferred functional test for a screening tool for future intervention studies in the cervical dorsolateral funiculotomy because it is easy to implement, analyze and demonstrates persistent deficits over the recovery period.

Paulk Publishes Article on Detecting Child Maltreatment

Dr. David Paulk
Paulk

Dr. David Paulk, Associate Professor of Medical Science, published the article “Child maltreatment: Seeing the problem is only step one,” which appeared in the Journal of the American Association of Physician Assistants, Volume 21, Number 5 (May 2008), pp. 46-50. In this article, Paulk notes that clinicians see the impact of child abuse or neglect, but usually not until it has progressed to a significant level. He maintains that the practitioner must understand the scope of the problem, as well as the types of abuse that exist. Most well-trained clinicians may understand reporting laws and recognize the overt signs of abuse. However, a major problem exists in how clinicians convince a child to disclose abuse when it is suspected in the first place. Paulk discusses the challenges of eliciting such disclosure, a difficult feat that requires remarkable communication skills and patience. He suggests that helpful communication strategies include finding an appropriate time or place to engage the child, asking direct questions, and being confrontational in the right way.

Haffar Reports on IPCR-UPEACE Collaboration

Dr. Warren Haffar

Director of International Peace and Conflict Resolution Dr. Warren Haffar and University for Peace (UPEACE) research fellow Jurgen Carls wrote “Resolving the Boruca dam conflict in Costa Rica,” published in Analysis II on Nov. 4. The article summarizes the findings of a joint research project by UPEACE and Arcadia University examining the conflict surrounding the proposed construction of the Boruca Hydroelectric Dam, located in southern Costa Rica. Read the story.

Tate Gets Grant for Shoulder Research

Dr. Angela Tate, Adjunct Professor of Physical Therapy, was recently awarded a grant of $16,893 from the United States Masters Swimming (USMS) Endowment Fund. Tate will serve as the principal investigator on a study titled “Identification of Modifiable Risk Factors for Shoulder Pain in Swimmers.” Shoulder pain is a common ailment for professional swimmers (with a reported range between 40 percent and 69 percent) and often is so severe that it can lead to termination of their participation in the sport. The long-term objective of this research is to provide a scientific basis for preventative training programs that incorporate education and training strategies. In the letter confirming the award, the Chair of the USMS Endowment Fund’s Board of Governors observed that “all swimmers, young and old alike, will benefit from your efforts and we are excited to see this research proceed.” Graduate students in the Physical Therapy program will assist in the poolside collection of data on such measures as the flexibility of the shoulder, strength of the rotator cuff and scapular, endurance of shoulder and core muscles, and presence of shoulder instability and impingement. The grant will fund a cross-sectional study of more than 240 competitive swimmers ages 10 to 70. Competitive swimmers from Arcadia will be among those tested.

Atkins Writes about Student Web Sites

Larry Atkins, an Adjunct Professor in the English, Communications, and Theatre Department, wrote an article for the Online Journalism Review on how college students should create their own professional Web sites. He also wrote a feature profile article in the November issue of U.S. Catholic Magazine on Tommy Geromichalos, who helped to save his school from closing by writing a letter to the Make a Wish Foundation, which inspired a fund-raising effort by the local community that raised more than $400,000.
