  • Bridging the Fragmented Identities and Experiences of Immigrant and Queer
           Women of Color: A Queer Analysis of the Film Everything Everywhere All at

    • Authors: Carrillo-Vargas; Darah
      Abstract: My thesis titled "Bridging the Fragmented Identities and Experiences of Immigrant and Queer Women of Color: A Queer Analysis of the Film Everything Everywhere All at Once" was completed during Fall of 2022 in the senior capstone course for the English department, ENG 190 with Professor Weisong Gao. This paper seeks to establish the way this film bridges the intersectional stories of immigrant and queer communities by exploring the experiences of both groups as queer. The research and writing was conducted all in one semester individually and with the guidance of Professor Gao. Due to the popularity of the film, film critiques and online articles on the main text were readily accessible. However, the academic discussion of the film shown in this thesis is arguably one of the earliest considering the lack of academic writing on such a new film. Still, the film's radical exploration of Asian American, queer, and immigrant communities has been widely recognized in the media; therefore...

  • How Could Pre-existing Knowledge of Physics Terms Prior to Learning Them
           in a Physics Classroom Alter the Learning of Physics in Introductory

    • Authors: Vanderbilt-Jaradat; Maxwell-Farog
      Abstract: Physics terms are terms that most people use in their day-to-day language which could create confusion when being taught in a physics classroom setting. In my experience, I found some concepts confusing when we first learned about velocity and acceleration. Acceleration to me meant speeding up which exactly means an increase in speed, but the term velocity is theterm used in physics for speed. When words fail us, it states that the physics teacher’s interpretations and filtration that they developed could appear different to every student based on how the language is developed (Tougher, 1991). In one aspect of this study, it appeared that the more the definition of a physics term is distant from an academic definition and more into an application to real life, then it becomes easier to understand.

  • The Prediction and Prevention of Cancer: An Evolutionary Approach

    • Authors: Younan; Joseph
      Abstract: Darwin’s Theory of Evolution is widely known as one of the most important aspects of biology among scientists and researchers. The relationship between evolution and medicine is a critical phenomenon which can lead to the innovation of newly implemented models and techniques, in hopes of suppressing life-threatening diseases in humans such as cancer. This paper aims to discover and understand how evolution can predict and prevent cancer inhumans. A major topic that this paper delves deep into is understanding the connection between evolution and medicine. Additionally, it looks to gain insight on how cancer has evolved and what scientists have learned from its progression over past generations. Lastly, this paper identifies and explains the various models that exist to aid in the prediction of cancer. Evolutionary medicine is a modern tool that can be used to further develop today’s medicine. Predicting evolution can allow scientists to implement advanced technological tools in...

  • How the Stigma of Mental Health Harms Hispanic Adolescents

    • Authors: Tien; Chandler
      Abstract: The stigmatization of mental health is a detriment to society. Learning healthy coping mechanisms or seeking professional mental health services are crucial to preventing others from perpetuating bad and problematic behaviors and better the mental health of the general population. The focal point of this research is how the stigma of mental health specifically harms Hispanic adolescents because mental health disparities disproportionately affect Latinos (a sizable minority group in the United States) in comparison to their white counterparts. FourHispanic adolescents were virtually interviewed to document their anecdotal experiences with the stigma of mental health issues in their families. The analysis of studies conducted by Susan Caplan and William Vega et al. are used to bridge and apply concepts of mental health stigma to the participants’ responses. It was found that poverty, language barriers, fear, societal stigma, and discriminatory stigma accumulate to make proper mental...

  • From Research to Practice: A Narrative Review of Interventions to Reach
           Rural Native American Communities for Health Promotion

    • Authors: Bhat; Namitha
      Abstract: Native Americans, as the indigenous people of North America, have a unique history and background in the United States and those living in remote, rural areas are particularly vulnerable to health disparities that impact their quality of life. While existing literature often focuses on these health disparities, gaps exist when considering how remote, rural environments can affect health promotion in Native American communities. To address this issue, a narrative review was conducted to examine interventions aimed at reaching rural Native Americans forhealth promotion. The review utilized credible studies published in reputable journals and a total of 12 articles were chosen for the final review. The selected studies were organized into main sections of key health disparities, culturally-relevant approaches, community-based participatory research, and ethical considerations. The review found that utilizing community-based participatory research can help create culturally tailored...

  • Camp Grant Massacre

    • Authors: Parra; Alexia
      Abstract: The attack happened on Sunday morning at 6:00 am, once every Apache went to sleep after their traditional ritual dance. Under the command of William Sanders Oury (also known as Bill Oury) and Juan Elias, an organized attack was arranged to target the Apache near Camp Grant in Arizona on April 30, 1871. As Oury, Elias, and their 148 followers pursued their attack, approximately 108 Apache were murdered with a small number of survivors. As the nation (including President Grant) received word about the Camp Grant Massacre, a trial proceeded months later that underwent 17 minutes with the verdict of not guilty for the defendants involved within the massacre. In the next following paragraphs, I will uncover the historical context, production of silences, historical actors, lateral memory, exemplary memory, and current memory activism of the Camp Grant Massacre.

  • The Need for Spanish Communication Classes in Medical Education

    • Authors: Fernandez; Brian
      Abstract: Throughout the history of modern-day medicine, clinicians and medical professionals have seen sickness and disease as having discrete biological causes. The health care system has seemed to be lacking in advancement recently, with provided care focusing on symptoms of disease and sickness, while not building a trusting relationship with the patient. For clinicians or medical professionals to effectively treat a patient and their underlying sickness and or disease, health care workers must be able to navigate across language barriers to aid in linguistically and culturally diverse communities. For clinicians and health care professionals to gain these skills, they must be trained throughout their medical school education with more respect for immigrant, migrant, and or minority Spanish-speaking patients by being taught Medical Spanish with a focus on communication skills. The use of Spanish in patient care by clinicians allows for multilingual patients who speak Spanish to understand...

  • Stepping Away from Sensory Deprivation: An Analysis of Floatation-REST

    • Authors: Griffith; Ivan
      Abstract: Floatation-REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulus Technique/Therapy), more commonly known as sensory deprivation, is a technique for relaxation and stress reduction that is quickly growing more popular due to the many benefits it seems to provide for its participants. Floatation-REST is a mild form of sensory deprivation/isolation in which the participant floats in a tank of saltwater (magnesium sulfate) which has been heated to skin temperature (35.5-36℃). The buoyant saltwater allows the participant to relax in a supine position, and they experience complete darkness and silence within the tank. Many studies have shown this technique to be beneficial in treating ailments such as anxiety, chronic pain, and other conditions associated with stress and muscle tension. However, Floatation-REST has much stigma surrounding it due to the negative histories associated with the term ‘sensory deprivation’, and many of those who experience anxieties that could be helped by Floatation-REST...

  • Howl: The Tip of the Obscene Iceberg

    • Authors: Mendez; Luis
      Abstract: My essay on Allen Ginsberg’s Howl is actually a chapter of a bigger research paper I’m working  on. While performing research on literary censorship, I found a source from the UC Merced  Library search engine. It was a book called Howl on Trial. Thus, I went down the rabbit hole. My objective was to actually argue against a commonly-viewed idea regarding Howl. Thanks to  the information provided by Howl on Trial, it was evident that many scholars had specific takes  on why Howl was initially banned. I decided to assert that many authors don’t really consider the  idea that the people who banned Howl, mainly police officers from the 1950s, never understood  the point of the poem. It was actually thanks to Professor Garcia from the UC Merced English  Department who gave me the idea to create a thesis that contested a previously established point.  Thus, thanks to the UC Merced Library, I chose to discuss American Scream: Allen Ginsberg's ...

  • Can Correlates of a Memory be Transferred Between Human Subjects' A
           New False Memory Paradigm.

    • Authors: Rotondo-Valentine; Joshua , Falandays, J. Ben , Spivey, Michael J. , Wilson, Jane
      Abstract: Research into memory transfer, the concept of taking one specimen’s experienced memory and transferring it to a naive specimen’s, dates back to the 1950s and 60s when studies first utilized forced cannibalism between specimens to theoretically achieve memory transfer (Albert, 1966;Babich et al., 1965; Braud, 1970; Jacobson et al., 1965; McConnell, 1962; reported by Bédécarrats et al., 2018). Recently, experimental research conducted by Bédécarrats et al. (2018) demonstrated the potential to transfer physiological and behavioral changes experienced by Aplysia to Aplysia not experiencing these changes, with the changes initially occurring due toconditioned fear responses to touch. In this literature review, a new paradigm will be proposed for studying memory transfer: the multimodal utility of virtual reality technologies, false memory productive paradigms, and existing physiological and behavioral measures as part of a between-subjects design. Skin conductance response and eye-tracking...

  • Breaking Gender Stereotypes in the Gender Community: Importance in
           Providing All-Round Support for Female Gamers Against Misogyny

    • Authors: Tseng; Yu Fang
      Abstract: The experience of female gamers in online gaming and gaming communities arecharacterized by a lack of social-emotional and organizational support, as well as prevalent general harassment and sexual harassment. Offline, negative stereotypes associated with female gamers and the lack of understanding from others towards women with video games as a hobbylead to the unwillingness of women to self-identify as gamers. Gender stereotypes, specifically, traits of male gamers being traditionally associated with gamer stereotypes cause the exclusion of female gamers and feminine traits from fair and normal treatment in the gaming community. In this contribution, the effects of existing gender stereotypes and misogynistic ideals present insociety on the gamer stereotype and gaming community, as well as the subsequent treatment of female gamers are examined. I conclude that only a multifaceted approach capable of addressing the aforementioned relationship between the larger society and the...

           Imposter Syndrome

    • Authors: Farias; Kimberly , Cameron, Linda
      Abstract: First-Generation college students are the first in their families to attend college.Approximately 39% of UC undergraduates are first-generation college students. Being the first to attend college can create a lot of stress, anxiety, and pressure, leaving students to question if they can complete a four-year degree. According to psychology research, many first-generation students struggle with imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is defined as “the persistent inability to believe that one's success is deserved or has been achieved as a result of one's efforts or skills''.

  • Examining Gender Stereotypes Within the Fashion Industry

    • Authors: Kulkarni; Shreegandha
      Abstract: This paper is a review of the literature of gender stereotypes. It examines thedeconstruction of gender stereotypes through clothing in settings such as academia and the workplace, magazine and pop culture, and shopping behavior and consumerism. It is found that attire has a profound influence on traditional gender norms in the workplace, and shown that men use clothing to signal their sexuality and their social status. Gender portrayals within children’sand men’s magazines often form stereotypes, which can be damaging to one’s development of identity - pop culture does the same when contributing to societal gender norms. This paper investigates how internalized homophobia can affect the shopping behavior of gay men, and reviews how young people’s clothing choices are closely linked to self-expression in determiningpersonality and congeniality. Fashion psychology plays a role in everyone’s life and has the same impact as other branches such as social, abnormal, or child psychology...

           Impact on Migrant Children's Well-Being

    • Authors: Farias; Kimberly
      Abstract: The purpose of this research was to understand the impact that the zero-tolerance immigration policy had on the well-being of children who were forcibly separated from their guardians at the U.S. border. Focusing on the factors that influence children and their families to migrate to the United States from their countries, the impact that forcible family separation has on children and their mental well-being. The experiences that children went through while in thecustody of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in the immigration detention centers, and the impact that the zero-tolerance immigration policy had on migrant families and children over time.

  • Activation of Religious Concepts in the Brain Lead to Greater Risk Taking

    • Authors: Nandi; Supratik
      Abstract: Imagine yourself getting ready to embark on a skydiving session. As you strap on your parachute and open the airplane door, a grin breaks across your face as you realize that in just mere seconds, you’ll experience the adrenaline rush and sense of freedom that comes with falling through the sky at terminal velocity. However, as the pilot tells you the plane has reached 14,000 feet above ground level, doubts slowly begin to trickle into your mind. Is the risk you’re taking truly worth it' The ground is so far below you, and if your parachute fails, there will be nothing to stop your inevitable gruesome death. You also have a wife and two beautiful children at home who love you. What would happen to them if you were to die today' With these thoughts running through your mind, you reluctantly tell the pilot to turn back, and decide that the risk just isn’t worth it. Now imagine yourself on the plane again, but this time, things are different. Rightbefore getting onto the airplane,...

  • Socioeconomic Status and Mental Health of Children

    • Authors: Chao; Alton
      Abstract: In the United States, mental health disorders are an issue that is quickly becoming more prevalent. This is especially true in children between ages three and seventeen. According to the article “Children’s mental health” by Ashley Abramson, approximately one in five of these children have a mental health disorder, and these rates have been worsened by the recent pandemic. (Abramson, 2022) Besides events such as a pandemic, a child’s family’s income level can have an impact on their mental health. It is important to know how the socioeconomic status of children and their families influences their chances of developing depression or anxiety. Understanding how parental stress, financial stress, and living conditions affect children’s mental health allows for intervention for those children. According to the article “Prevention and early intervention in youth mental health” by Marco Colizzi et al., having early intervention for thesechildren can improve academic performance and decrease...

  • Lattice Light-Sheet Microscopy as a Key Method for the Analysis of the
           Mislocalization of TDP-43 in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    • Authors: Magro; Kyle
      Abstract: Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by the progressive loss of motor neurons. Consequently, patients afflicted with this disease eventually lose the motor function associated with moving, speaking, eating, and even breathing. One neuroscience team identified a common mechanism in nearly all sporadic ALS patients in which transactive response DNA binding protein 43 kDa (TDP-43) was mislocalized from the nucleus to the cytoplasm. This suggests that the mislocalization of TDP-43 into the cytoplasm is central for the onset of ALS in patients, but the underlying factors that result in this process are not fully understood as there are no current laboratory methods to study the progression of TDP-43 mislocalization. However, the development and refinement of lattice light-sheet microscopy (LLSM) as a laboratory technique has significant potential in helping scientists elucidate the unknown processes behind...

  • Pastoral Narcissism & Church Size

    • Authors: Ford; Sarah
      Abstract: Imagine yourself in this situation, it is Sunday morning and you are heading to church. It is a fairly large church with many people attending and many services are offered. You notice the lead pastor is arguing with one of the younger pastors. The conversation itself seems a bit loud and inappropriate for the location but it is not the first time it has happened, and no one elseseems to notice. The following week, you attend a different church that is smaller in followers. You notice the lead pastor arguing with a younger pastor. Everyone is watching the conversation at this point since it seems as if it is uncommon to happen at all. What is the difference' Why arepeople more tolerant in larger churches' Research shows that Narcissistic pastors of larger churches have less dominant followers than smaller churches. The reason for this is that there is a fear that if a narcissistic pastor were to leave the church, the number of attendees would drop because of their devotion to...

  • Latina/Hispanic Women’s Perception of Postpartum Depression

    • Authors: Velazquez; Mayra
      Abstract: This literature review analyzes different studies and articles that focus on Latina/Hispanic women’s perception of postpartum depression (PPD). The cultural, social, and healthcare delivery barriers Latina/Hispanic women experience and the effect these barriers have on the use of resources are discussed. The following concerns are addressed in more detail: traditional differences, women’s expectations, beliefs about motherhood, the negative stigma around PPD, immigration status, language barriers, and adverse effects of PPD on the infant children of Latina/Hispanic women. Due to cultural factors influencing the underutilization of resources, interventions that target reducing these barriers need to be developed. Further research should be focused on testing the effectiveness of suggested interventions such as implementing universal screening for PPD, having additional support programs available, offering classes about PPD, and involving family members in early informational interventions....

  • Brain-Computer Interfaces: The Technology of Our Future

    • Authors: Davis; Kaylee R.
      Abstract: A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is a promising technology that has received increased attention in recent years. BCIs create a direct link from your brain to a computer. This technology has applications to many industries and sectors of our life. BCIs redefine how we approach medical treatment and communication for individuals with various conditions or injuries. BCIs also have applications in entertainment, specifically video games and VR.

  • The Possibility of Universal Health Coverage in the United States

    • Authors: Riley; Anna
      Abstract: This research paper intends to examine the ways in which universal healthcare coverage can potentially benefit the United States population, as well as investigate the challenges of implementing it. This paper found that there are many problems within the current U.S. healthcare system that can be improved by the implementation of Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Additionally, this paper includes evidence that UHC could have many economic and public health benefits in the United States. The paper then mentions the clear plans for implementing UHC in the U.S. and that there are other countries which have successfully implemented it. Finally, the paper ends by highlighting the certain difficulties that come with implementation as well as underscoring their possible solutions.Keywords: universal healthcare coverage, United States healthcare, health insurance

  • Echoes In Familiar Spaces: Audio Styling and the Audience’s Invitation
           to the Worlds of Limetown and Within The Wires

    • Authors: Sumida-Tate; Remy
      Abstract: Podcasts are useful for influencing the way the audience thinks – audio drama especially lends itself to this application, with writers being able to cloak stronger political messages within the fictionalized worlds of their narratives. Podcasts like Limetown and Within The Wires can effectively tell stories about political and social issues through their involvement of the audience in the world of the work. The familiarity of the audience with the auditory styling of the podcast as well as the clear audio signposting used in both podcasts gives the audience a touchstone to their everyday life that makes it less strenuous to situate themselves in the fictional world and focus on the narrative despite other potential distractions. Through close listening examinations of both podcasts, I analyze and discuss the impact that the scripting and use of audio elements have on the audience's perception of the narrative and the implications for audio drama and podcasting as a whole....

  • My Parents’ Immigration Stories as a Microcosm of American

    • Authors: Perez; Janelle A.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is to outline the prevalence of American colonialism present within the values of Philippine culture and the Philippine identity. Aspects of colonialism and assimilation into American culture are highlighted through my parents’ immigration story. Many Pilipinos/Pilipino-Americans struggle with a sense of identity, especially growing up or being exposed to a bicultural environment. I utilize the idea of identity conflict to examine how aspects of identity are represented through Philippine cultural values. The value of historical texts regarding American colonization, assimilation, and topics confined under the complexities of the Pilipino-American identity are investigated and evaluated. My parents’ stories and their conformity to American culture/ideals as an exemplar for how this social phenomena manifests itself in those who identify with an identity related to the Philippine culture. Primary texts and secondary texts are evaluated to describe the...

  • The Isolated Youth’s Modern Musical Aesthetic

    • Authors: Klemm; Caitlyn
      Abstract: Starting in 2020, the rise of the “aesthetic,” music playlist (playlists that appealed to a particular aesthetic or theme) had skyrocketed on Youtube. From referencing studies about the effects of isolation and creativity to directly analyzing the musical playlists themselves, this paper examines the growing trend of aesthetic playlists on social media by identifying how particular combinations of songs evoke certain creative or emotional expressions as well as what those expressions mean to the listeners in an online community. While lacking a definite or singular reason as to why it had sprung into popularity, multiple studies lend evidence to the theory that the COVID-19 lockdowns had stripped away socializing opportunities with peers and friends during key stages of development, leaving ample room and need to develop other means of sharing sentiments via online internet; aesthetic playlists thus have become a new medium of universalizing a creative effort to engage in a...

  • Mass Incarceration: Prisoners are People, Not Slaves

    • Authors: Gomez; Emily
      Abstract: Slavery has remained alive in the United States, well past the implementation of the 13th amendment. It has simply taken on a different name: The United States Prison System. The prison system was the scapegoat for our country to continue to take advantage of people without any repercussions. I have compiled research from various sources to highlight the negative impacts of our current prison system on minoritized individuals and their communities. The research demonstrates that the mass incarceration of minoritized individuals is caused by the selfishness of prison corporations and is supported by United States policies and judicial systems. Mass incarceration does more harm than good and serious reform such as changing the penalties of certain offenses, choosing rehabilitation instead of imprisonment for drug charges, stopping private prisons from profiting off of prisoners, and changing the three strikes law and plea bargains is needed.Keywords: Mass incarceration,...

  • Graph-based featurization methods for classifying small molecule compounds

    • Authors: Posada; Randy , Silva, Mary , Torres, Marisa , Allen, Jonathan , Drocco, Jeff , Sandholtz, Sarah , Zemla, Adam , investigative teams, UCSF SPOKE
      Abstract: For over a decade, drug-induced liver injury (DILI) has posed significant drawbacks in the synthesis and development of drugs and remains a consequential concern. With finite success within the existing preclinical models, DILI is one of the main causes of drug withdrawal or termination from the market. Particularly, this withdrawal occurs during the late stages of drug development (Kullak-Ublick, 2017). Since DILI is difficult to diagnose and treat, it has become an obstacle in the drug production market that in turn affects clinicians, pharmaceutical companies, and consumers. We propose a method for learning features of DILI-positive drugs based on the graphical relationships and patterns they possess within a network of biological databases. We also train various statistical and machine learning models on these learned features in order to classify the drugs as DILI-positive or negative. Our methods include Random Forest, Neural...

  • Existence of Ideological Drift within the United States Supreme Court: An
           Analysis of Conservative Majority Votes

    • Authors: Braun; Jason , Sandoval, Jonathon
      Abstract: Ideological drift is the phenomenon in which an actor shifts their original political stance to the left or right of the political spectrum. Previous literature suggests that a liberal-inclined ideological shift occurs in the Supreme Court. However, there has been an absence of research confirming the presence of liberal ideological drift. The focus of this paper determines whether liberal ideological drift is prevalent in liberal justices and also perhaps the most surprising population: Conservative justices on the Supreme Court of the Modern Era (1946- present). We postulated that if a justice serves at least 10 terms, then a decreased frequency of majority conservative votes will be made evident, thus proving a liberal ideological drift. Our empirical findings support our postulation: a majority of conservative justices of the Modern Era have fewer conservative majority votes with the passage of 10 terms or more, therefore indicating an ideological shift to the left. There...

  • Beyond the Armchair: Defying the Myth of 1950s Fatherhood From Outside of
           the Household

    • Authors: Pacheco; Henry
      Abstract: A strong, well-balanced family doesn’t always have to be driven by an equally strong and well-balanced father. However, the all too recognizable idealization of the media-perfected, everpresent, firm-but-fair father of the 1950s continues to resonate with us even after 70 years of his evolution and progressive change. It is assumed that he governs the household with a stern, yet not iron fist, he comes home after a long day of honest work with poise, and he cares for his wife and kids with an equal reserve—not affectionate but not cruel. The father is supposed to be the rock of the 1950s home, and he does this in the way in which society believes he should. In Taylor Sheridan’s Hell or High Water, divorced father and disconnected brother Toby Howard provides none of these characteristics for his family, and it would be impossible for him to follow this mythological lead. Unlike the traditional ‘50s father figure, Toby robs banks with his ex-con brother, Tanner, in an attempt to...

  • Sexual Imagery: Why Does It Still Matter'

    • Authors: Campos; Noemy
      Abstract: Sexual imagery, why does it still matter today' Or better yet, why does it still matter in Emily Dickinson’s poetry' Dickinson is one of the many writers that touch up on topics about sex and sexuality. Two taboos that for years have been demonized by western society. Dickinson’s work matters today because it allows discussion on sexual liberation, sexuality in literature, teaching queer studies, and the removal of heteronormativity. Dickinson’s work investigates these societal plagues that started during the 19th century and continue today.

  • COVID-19 Vaccination Hesitancy in African American and Latinx Populations

    • Authors: Naidu; Justin J.
      Abstract: In the United States, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated health disparities among African American and Latinx populations with particularly low vaccination rates. Vaccine hesitancy is a key barrier to African American and Latinx groups from acquiring the COVID-19 vaccine. Studies highlight that contextual influences, individual and group influences, and vaccinespecific influences have prominence in COVID-19 vaccine hesitation. This literature review summarizes COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy characteristics and the health communication strategies that legislators may consider when developing COVID-19 vaccination policies and programs in the United States.Key Words: literature review, coronavirus disease-19, COVID-19 pandemic, vaccines, COVID19 vaccines, vaccine hesitancy, minority health, health disparities

  • Reivindicación feminista generacional: Lo que cuentan las mujeres

    • Authors: Padilla; Marina Mariscal
      Abstract: En su novela, Fronterizas: Una novela en síes cuentos, Roberta Fernández nos presenta las historias de síes mujeres que pertenecen a una familia intergeneracional mexicana. Las mujeres en estos cuentos reflejan un ambiente multicultural y la interseccionalidad de la identidad de la mujer. Aunque es una recolección de cuentos que demuestran una identidad familiar entre ellas, la autora le da su respectivo espacio a cada mujer para acentuar diferentes identidades y experiencias. Este ensayo discutirá el uso del cuento entre familia como un indicador de la interseccionalidad de identidad del individuo. Demostraré como los mitos, chismes y propia experiencia se relaciona con los diferentes aspectos de la identidad chicana usando la perspectiva de Nenita. En cambio, los cuentos interfamiliares también sirven como aprendizaje de valorar las identidades que poseen. Las identidades varían entre ellas por causa de diferentes aspectos como clase social, ciudanía, papel de casa, etc. Además,...

  • Latinx Men in the Central Valley: Perspectives on Mental Health

    • Authors: Garcia; Kayri
      Abstract: Minimal studies have been conducted on the effects of traditional Latinx/Hispanic gender roles on the mental health of Latinx men. However, those conducted concluded that young adult males have the most negative attitude towards mental health treatment (Gonzales et al., 2005) and the endorsement of traditional male gender roles of machismo relate to negative cognitions and emotions (Nuñez et al., 2016). Therefore, to contribute to the need of Latinx mental health research, a survey was distributed to Hispanic/Latinx men ages 17 to 48 in the Central Valley to find if Hispanic/Latinx men have a negative attitude towards mental health treatment due to machismo and cultural gender norms factors. The results of the survey concluded heterosexual Hispanic/Latinx men between the ages of 17-26 did not have an overall negative attitude towards seeking mental health treatment, participants considered themselves masculine without it being influenced by their culture, and those in the 28-48...

  • The Role of Racial/Ethnic Pride in Relation to Racism/Ethnocentrism

    • Authors: Ghecea; Logan
      Abstract: In recent years, the idea that racial or ethnic pride can be positive has grown in popularity, even as popular sentiment has turned increasingly against racism and ethnocentrism. Being able to celebrate our differences (racial or ethnic dignity) without acting on them in a prideful, negative way (racism or ethnocentrism) seems more possible today than at any time in American history. Yet today there is also growing concern that our differences are not just cause for celebration, but grounds for separation, among other things with the goal of pursuing political agendas. From affirming the racial identities of schoolchildren to stoking the racial, cultural and religious conflicts that divide Bosnia and other nations (including the United States), racial and ethnic pride have historically been forces for both good and evil depending on how they were defined. Pride as dignity is the act of giving oneself a basic level of self-worth, which every human is allotted based on our modern...

  • The Impact of Gamification on Motivation

    • Authors: Vadodkar; Anooj R.
      Abstract: Gamification is the concept of using game design elements as a means of attracting users to a product, initially starting as a business decision. There are benefits to understanding what makes gamification work, as a motivated userbase would result in better products, even helping individuals manage themselves and their energy consumption. Research has been conducted to show a clear link between gamification and motivation, as well as implementations of the subject in sustainability and individual health monitoring. This review highlights what game design elements have primarily been used in gamification and its effects on motivation, which could allow developers to better understand the relationship between games and the user, as well as see what other elements of game design which can still be implemented.Keywords: game design, gamification, motivation, autonomy

  • UC Merced Through a Socio-Environmental Imagination Lens

    • Authors: Wasson; Alexia
      Abstract: The socio-environmental imagination will be applied to the University of California, Merced, in hopes to understand the connection between society and UC Merced. UC Merced is located in Merced, California. It is the 10th university in the UC system and the first American research university of the 21st century. It has both undergraduate and graduate divisions. Consisting of three schools: Engineering, Natural Sciences, and the Social Sciences, Humanities, and Arts. There are currently two schools in the making, the E&J Gallo School of Management and a future medical school, which will begin enrolling students in 2023. UC Merced is the leading UC campus with the highest percentage of students from underrepresented ethnic/racial groups, low-income families, and first-generation students. I decided to choose UC Merced for my research because I am a first-generation, low-income, UC Merced student, and I wanted to add onto my knowledge of campus. The socio-environmental imagination...
