The role of translanguaging in the multilingual turn: Driving philosophical and conceptual renewal in language education

Josh Prada, Blake Turnbull
2018 EuroAmerican Journal of Applied Linguistics and Languages  
EN The multilingual turn refers to a recent series of shifts in the core philosophical underpinnings in traditional foreign and second language classroom practice.  ...  The goal of this article is twofold: first to chart the central developments that have led to the emergence of the multilingual turn thus far, and second to provide an account of how classroom translanguaging  ...  promote), stimulating philosophical renewal.  ...

Automotive Drive Shafts

A. W. Thompson
1980 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences  
This paper will relate the requirements for drive shafts to the properties of carbon fibres. Both technical and marketing requirements will be considered.  ...  This is the fore and aft shaft transmitting the engine torque of a car or truck to the driven axle to propel the vehicle.  ...  For a drive shaft the angles at which the fibres are laid has been the subject of some evolution.  ...

Why does phenology drive species distribution?

I. Chuine
2010 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
These models strongly rely on the completion of the annual cycle of the species and therefore on their accomplished phenology.  ...  Despite the numerous studies which have been conducted during the past decade on species ranges and their relationship to the environment, our understanding of how environmental conditions shape species  ...  The first definition has also been called the 'address' of the species and the second one its 'profession' (Odum 1959) .  ...

Driving to the Panopticon: A Philosophical Exploration of the Risks to Privacy Posed by the Highway Technology of the Future [chapter]

Jeffrey H. Reiman
2017 Privacy  
I hope that my title, "Driving to the Panopticon," indicates to you that I don't regard the threat to privacy posed by Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems as a strawman at all.  ...  the major effect of the Panopticon [is] to induce in the inmate a state of conscious and permanent visibility that assures the automatic functioning of power.  ...  Wherever we drive, we drive in the public world, and thus normally subject to unobjectionable public observation.  ...

Electron-like quasiparticles drive the superconductor-insulator transition in homogeneously disordered thin films

Philip Phillips, Denis Dalidovich
2001 Philosophical Magazine B  
As gapless electronic excitations populate the insulating state, the universality class is no longer the 3D XY model.  ...  Because R_N is determined at high temperatures and H_c2 is the pair-breaking field, the two immediate consequences are: 1) electron-quasiparticles populate the insulating side of the transition and 2)  ...  Markovic for the data points which led to Figure ( 2) and Eduardo Fradkin for clarifying discussions on the universality class of the pair-breaking transition.  ...

What drives recombination hotspots to repeat DNA in humans?

G. McVean
2010 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Unexpectedly, the most highly penetrant form of the motif occurs on the background of an inactive repeat element family (THE1 elements) and the motif also has strong recombinogenic activity on currently  ...  Given the potential for double-strand breaks within repeat DNA to cause pathological rearrangement, the association between repeats and hotspots is surprising.  ...  & Neumann 2002; Ptak et al. 2005; Coop & Myers 2007) leading to drive against the hot allele at the population level.  ...

The role of meiotic drive in hybrid male sterility

S. R. McDermott, M. A. F. Noor
2010 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
Meiotic drive causes the distortion of allelic segregation away from Mendelian expected ratios, often also reducing fecundity and favouring the evolution of drive suppressors.  ...  Although the hypothesis that meiotic drive may contribute to hybrid sterility, and thus species formation, fell out of favour early in the 1990s, recent results showing an association between drive and  ...  Most drive systems are characterized as 'true drive,' where the drive actually takes place during meiosis.  ...

Social drive and the evolution of primate hearing

M. A. Ramsier, A. J. Cunningham, J. J. Finneran, N. J. Dominy
2012 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
To account for these findings, we develop and test a model of social drive. We hypothesize that social complexity has favoured enhanced hearing sensitivities, especially at higher frequencies.  ...  The adaptive advantages of receiving and responding to alarm calls are expected to exert a selective pressure on the auditory system.  ...  (b) Sensory drive The principles of sensory drive-that environmental parameters drive the evolution of sensory systems, which in turn drive the evolution of social signals [77, 78] -establish the possibility  ...

Epigenetics drive the evolution of sex chromosomes in animals and plants

Aline Muyle, Doris Bachtrog, Gabriel A. B. Marais, James M. A. Turner
2021 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
This article is part of the theme issue 'How does epigenetics influence the course of evolution?'  ...  The Y chromosome accumulates repeats that become epigenetically silenced which leads to an epigenetic conflict with the expression of Y genes and could accelerate Y degeneration.  ...  The meiotic drive hypothesis is also superior to others in explaining why MSCI occurs in therians but not birds [108] .  ...
