Homological stability for the ribbon Higman–Thompson groups [article]

Rachel Skipper, Xiaolei Wu
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We generalize the notion of asymptotic mapping class groups and allow them to surject to the Higman--Thompson groups, answering a question of Aramayona and Vlamis in the case of the Higman--Thompson groups  ...  Our result can also be treated as an extension of Szymik--Wahl's work on homological stability for the Higman--Thompson groups to the surface setting.  ...  The usual Thompson group V is a special case of Higman-Thompson groups. In fact, V = V 2,1 . Ribbon Higman-Thompson groups.  ...

The Automatic Hand: Spiritualism, Psychoanalysis, and Surrealism

Rachel Leah Thompson
2004 InVisible Culture  
In March 1848, in Hydesville, New York, the two young Fox sisters began to communicate with the spirits. They would later move with their family to Rochester where they would begin the occult communications with the deceased that originate the American Spiritualist movement. 1 Initially, the spirits simply announced their presence through mysterious rapping sounds (later revealed to be produced by the cracking of the girls' toe joints against the floor), which seemed to shower down from the

As one medium writes of her experiences with automatic writing during séance:

Healthcare providers

Hankiz Dolan, Mu Li, Deborah Bateson, Rachel Thompson, Chun Wah Michael Tam, Carissa Bonner, Lyndal Trevena
2020 Sexual Health  
In Australia, there are many culturally and linguistically diverse communities and Chinese migrants make up one of the largest. Yet, little is known about healthcare providers' (HCPs) unique experiences in providing contraceptive care for Chinese migrant women. There is minimal research into the HCPs' perceptions of challenges or opportunities in engaging Chinese migrant women in informed and shared decision-making processes during contraceptive counselling. The aim of this study is to explore
more » ... CPs' experiences of providing contraceptive care for Chinese migrant women, their perceptions of women's care needs when choosing contraceptive methods, as well as their own needs in supporting women's decision-making. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 20 HCPs in Sydney, Australia who had substantial experience in providing contraceptive services to Chinese women who were recent migrants. Transcribed audio-recorded data were analysed using thematic analysis. Four main themes were identified, including: 'Are you using contraception?': the case for being proactive and opportunistic; 'Getting the message across': barriers to communication; 'Hormones are unnatural?': women favouring non-hormonal methods; and 'Word of mouth': social influence on contraceptive method choice. In order to facilitate informed choice and shared decision-making with Chinese migrant women during contraceptive counselling, broader health system and community-level strategies are needed. Such strategies could include improving HCPs' cultural competency in assessing and communicating women's contraceptive needs; providing professional interpreting services and translated materials; and improving women's health literacy, including their contraceptive knowledge and health system awareness.

Management of Craniopharyngioma – Perspectives beyond Surgery and Endocrinology

Rachel K Crowley, Christopher J Thompson
2015 European Endocrinology  
The excess mortality in craniopharyngiomas is attributable to their size, site and the traditional surgical approach; aggressive resection predisposes to hypothalamic complications such as obesity, somnolence, thirst disorders and neurocognitive dysfunction. Recently, treatment has been modified to partial resection and radiotherapy. The role of the endocrinologist has expanded from identification and replacement of hormone deficits to include management of hypothalamic disease. Future
