Seeking Safer Bridges

Lee’s text Structural health monitoring system provides an overview of the development of an autonomous, continuous structural health monitoring (SHM) system for typical girder bridges. In his description of the system, Lee notes two key features that help owners manage their bridge assets — integration and identification. First, the system can be integrated into an active bridge management system that tracks usage and structural changes, while identification assists with determining occurrences of overload, damage, deterioration, and vehicle collisions with the structure.
Dr. Yoon-Si Lee, assistant professor of civil engineering and construction. (2012). Use of CFRP in strengthening steel girder bridges: Strengthening with carbon fiber reinforced polymers composite materials. Saarbrücken, Germany: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing.
In Use of CFRP in strengthening steel girder bridges, Lee examines the strengthening process used in two different structurally deficient bridges. In the first case, the live-load carrying capacity was improved using carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) bars that were post-tensioned in the positive moment region. The other bridge was reinforced through the installation of CFRP plates to the bottom flange of its girders, also in the positive moment region.

A Subconscious Debate

In his latest collection of poetry, Wrestling Li Po for the remote, Stein juxtaposes ancient Chinese poet Li Po’s quest for lyrical detachment against his own urge for communal engagement. “It’s a lovely idea, getting away from the self,” Stein has noted. “But I think it’s equally important to be grounded among your brothers and sisters.”
The result of this opposition is a refreshing examination of modern America’s skewed notions of social and aesthetic value. Touching on subjects as varied as night shift factory workers, guitarist Les Paul, toilet paper, and league bowlers, Stein brings to his poems both empathy and an astute eye for cultural foibles. Said to pull no punches, the compilation poses fundamental questions of self and art in the modern era.

Filled with stories, tips, and tools for managers who want to transform their organizations, No excuses also features an extensive set of case studies on leading companies such as Accenture, Coca-Cola, Mayo Clinic and Zappos.
Ultimately, the authors expose the self-defeating mindset that can stand in the way of a great workplace and offer a path for change — leading people properly.

Philosophy and Religious Studies
Fuller, R. C. (2013). The body of faith: A biological history of religion in America. Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press.
Religion and the Body
Dr. Robert C. Fuller, Caterpillar Professor of Religious Studies. (2013). The body of faith: A biological history of religion in America. Chicago, IL: University of Chicago Press.
As the first new work to appear in the Chicago History of America series in decades, The body of faith brings a crucial new perspective to the study of American religion.
In the book’s preface, Fuller details his principal argument that “new information about the human body can enrich historical description and sharpen historical explanation.” Referencing some of the body’s genetically evolved systems — pain responses, sexual passion, and emotions like shame and fear — Fuller builds the case for looking beyond traditional postmodern views focused on cultural constructs to gain insight into how human thought and experiences shape our relationships with nature, society and God.
He later makes the connection between the biological and cultural for readers: “The goal of inquiry is to explain complex expressions of human thought, feeling and behavior. The richest historical narratives must recognize that human beings are at once biological and cultural. Slighting either impoverishes our understanding of why we think and feel as we do.”
Although Fuller’s approach challenges long-held beliefs about American religious life, he does not ask readers to simply replace traditional methods with his. Instead, he suggests blending them for a more comprehensive and accurate picture. According to Amanda Porterfield, author of Conceived in doubt: Religion and politics in the new American nation, “Fuller’s even-handed treatment of scientific explanation complements his mastery of historical sources in a forceful testament to religion’s importance in American life.”
A faculty member at Bradley since 1978, Fuller has written numerous articles and more than a dozen books, including five published by the Oxford University Press. He is considered one of the top authorities on American religious thought and regularly serves as a resource to the news media.

Challenging Conventional Thought
Dr. Isaac W. Oliver, assistant professor of religious studies. (2013). Torah praxis after 70 CE: Reading Matthew and Luke-Acts as Jewish texts. Tübingen, Germany: Mohr Siebeck.
In Torah praxis after 70 CE, Oliver challenges conventional views of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke as well as the Acts of the Apostles. He reads the works not only against their Jewish “background” but also as early Jewish literature. In doing so, he questions Luke-Acts traditional classification as a “Greek” or Gentile-Christian text and claims that Luke, who is normally seen as a Gentile, was a Jewish author.
To support his assertions, Oliver’s historical investigation explores the question of Torah praxis in each book, citing evidence that suggests several ritualistic Jewish practices remained fixtures in the Jesus movement and that Jewish followers of Jesus played key roles in forming the ekklesia well into the first century CE.

Study Guide for Future Teachers
Dr. D. Antonio Cantù, professor and chair of teacher education; Dr. Patricia M. Nugent, associate professor of teacher education; & Dr. Sherrie C. Pardieck, associate professor of teacher education. (2014). ILTS test of academic proficiency (TAP). Piscataway, NJ: Research & Education Association.
Before individuals may be licensed to teach in Illinois, they must pass several content-area tests, including the Illinois Licensure Testing System (ILTS) Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP). To help prospective educators pass the TAP, Cantù, Nugent, and Pardieck developed ILTS test of academic proficiency to serve as a complete study package.
The book includes an extensive examination of each of the specific competency components — reading comprehension, language arts, mathematics, and writing — that are covered on the four subtests. It also features online diagnostic tools and full-length practice tests with timed formats, instant scoring, and feedback to help pinpoint strengths and weaknesses, as well as detailed explanations of the answers.
Because the authors are Illinois teacher educators, they possess a unique appreciation for the importance of succeeding on the exam. For this reason, they designed their study program to guide any user toward building the requisite fundamental knowledge and understanding necessary to prepare for and excel on the TAP, a fact that is explained in the introduction: “What’s best for you depends on how much time you have to study and how comfortable you are with the subject matter. Our book has a plan that you can customize to fit both your lifestyle and study style.”

Today’s science teachers owe a debt to the educators who came before them — who shaped and reshaped the face of science education. The new Pioneers of Science Education series strives to recognize those trailblazers beginning with its first volume, Going back for our future. Explained as “an attempt to capture and record memories from the pioneers themselves or from those who worked closely with them,” the book recognizes both well- and lesser-known pioneers who held significant roles as mentors and teachers. It also reveals the extensive network connecting these individuals and how it fostered their development then and continues to support educators now.
