WIYN Open Cluster Study. XVII. Astrometry and Membership toV=21 in NGC 188

Imants Platais, Vera Kozhurina-Platais, Robert D. Mathieu, Terrence M. Girard, William F. van Altena
2003 Astronomical Journal  
We present techniques for obtaining presision astrometry using old photographic plates from assorted large-aperture reflectors in combination with recent CCD Mosaic Imager frames. At the core of this approach is a transformation of plate/CCD coordinates into a previously constructed astrometric reference frame around the open cluster NGC 188. Our primary result is a new catalog of proper motions and positions for 7812 objects down to V=21 in the 0.75 square degree area around NGC 188. The
more » ... ion for well-measured stars is 0.15 mas/yr for proper motions and 2 mas for positions on the system of the Tycho-2 catalog. The sum of membership probabilities indicates that NGC 188 contains 1050 stars down to V=21. Comprehensive lists of the candidate blue stragglers and red giants substantially enlarge the number of such stars known in NGC 188. We have also obtained a small correction to the proper motions from the mean 'motion' of background galaxies. (Abridged)

The Southern Proper Motion Program. III. A Near-Complete Catalog toV = 17.5

Terrence M. Girard, Dana I. Dinescu, William F. van Altena, Imants Platais, David G. Monet, Carlos E. López
2004 Astronomical Journal  
We present the third installment of the Yale/San Juan Southern Proper Motion Catalog, SPM3. Absolute proper motions, positions, and photographic B,V photometry are given for roughly 10.7 million objects, primarily stars, down to a magnitude of V=17.5. The Catalog covers an irregular area of 3700 square degrees, between the declinations of -20 and -45 degrees, excluding the Galactic plane. The proper-motion precision, for well-measured stars, is estimated to be 4.0 mas/yr. Unlike previous
more » ... s of the SPM Catalog, the proper motions are on the International Celestial Reference System by way of Hipparcos Catalog stars, and have an estimated systematic uncertainty of 0.4 mas/yr. The SPM3 Catalog is available via electronic transfer,(http://www.astro.yale.edu/astrom/) As an example of the potential of the SPM3 proper motions, we examine the Galactocentric velocities of a group of metal-poor, main-sequence A stars. The majority of these exhibit thick-disk kinematics, lending support to their interpretation as thick-disk blue stragglers, as opposed to being an accreted component.

New Measures of Well-Being [chapter]

Ed Diener, Derrick Wirtz, Robert Biswas-Diener, William Tov, Chu Kim-Prieto, Dong-won Choi, Shigehiro Oishi
2009 Assessing Well-Being  
We present new measures of well-being to assess the following concepts: 1. Psychological Well-Being (PWB); 2. Positive Feelings, Negative Feelings, and the balance between the two (SPANE-P, N, B); and 3. Positive Thinking. The PWB scale is a short 8-item summary survey of the person's self-perceived functioning in important areas such as relationships, self-esteem, purpose and meaning, and optimism. The scale is substantially correlated with other psychological well-being scales, but is
more » ... The scale provides a single overall psychological well-being score and does not yield scores for various components of well-being. The Scale of Positive and Negative Experience (SPANE) yields a score for positive experience and feelings (6 items), a score for negative experience and feelings (6 items), and the two can be combined to create an experience balance score. This 12-item brief scale has a number of desirable features compared to earlier measures of positive and negative feelings. In particular, the scale assesses with a few items a broad range of negative and positive experiences and feelings, not just those of a certain type, and is based on the frequency of feelings during the past month. A scale to measure Positive Thinking is also presented. Basic psychometric statistics are presented for the scales based on 573 college students at five universities.

Extraverts categorize their daily experiences by specific social relationships

William Tov, Kelly Koh
2014 Journal of Research in Personality  
How an event is categorized may reflect the constructs that are cognitively accessible to a person. The present study examined whether extraverts categorized their daily experiences by general sociality (social versus nonsocial), specific relationships, valence, and academics/leisure. After reporting events during a one-month diary study, participants sorted their events into meaningful groupings. Extraverts tended to categorize their events by sociality and more specifically by the nature of
more » ... eir relationships with others. No other effects were found. Thus, what may be salient to extraverts is not just the time they spend socializing, but whom they are socializing with. This finding suggests the need to move beyond affiliation to study more specific social motives that extraverts may pursue.

Report on the SIGIR 2013 workshop on health search and discovery

Ryen W. White, Elad Yom-Tov, Eric Horvitz, Eugene Agichtein, William Hersh
2013 SIGIR Forum  
The workshop brought together 40 researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to discuss search and discovery in the medical domain. Presentations and discussions spanned several challenging and important topics, including directions improving the accessibility of medical and health information for lay people (with associated enhancements to result ranking algorithms and search interfaces), and methods for discovering biomedical phenomena from the information that people seek

A thread throughout the workshop was the opportunity for new methods and applications to enhance the quality of life of people suffering from medical disorders, carry out surveillance of emerging diseases and other threats, and, more generally, to improve the health and well-being of people via tools to support their health-related information behavior.
