Press the ▲ or ▼ button on the TuneFM to select the transmission frequency chosen in step 1. The frequency will be visible on the iPod’s screen. Pressing and holding either button will provide faster tuning. 4. After displaying the current frequency for five seconds, the iPod screen will return to the iPod Main Menu. This happens whenever you make changes to the TuneFM’s settings. All settings—including transmission frequency, volume-control setting, and stereo/mono-control settings—are permanently stored in memory at this time. Note: iPod playback will pause momentarily when entering and exiting the TuneFM control menu. Playback will quickly resume.
Criticism of First Turkish-German Minister Grows By Anna Reimann Aygül Özkan was meant to be the hope of a new generation of politicians in Germany. In April she became the first politician with German-Turkish roots to become a minister in a state government. But her first months in office have proven to be a disaster and what could have been a public relations coup for her conservative party has backfired. Aygül Özkan, 38, was meant to be the next great hope for a new generation of German politicians. In April, she became the first person of Turkish origin to be appointed as a government minister at the state level . Indeed, it was rare that a politician had been given as much advance praise or had been saddled with such great expectations. "She's a major role model, with her competence and her character and she will get off to a good start and do a good job," Christian Wulff, then the state governor of Lower Saxony and now Germany's president, said at the time. He said she would also help to "prevent parallel societies" from forming, a reference to immigrant ghettos many politicians fear are developing in German cities. At the time of her appointment as social minister, Özkan was feted not just by her party, Chancellor Angela Merkel's conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU), but across the political spectrum. But Özkan's time in office so far has been marred by controversy. Only days before taking up her job, Özkan said in an interview that "Christian symbols" -- specifically crucifixes, "do not belong in state-run schools." She added that Muslim headscarves don't, either -positions that had even been backed by Germany's highest court. But pressure from within her party was tremendous and Wulff reprimanded his protégé, who in turn apologized. Later, Özkan sparked controversy because of employee contracts she had signed as a manager at TNT, a postal services company. At the company, some workers received wages of only €7.50 ($9.80) per hour. Employment lawyers accused her of having created "working conditions that were at the legal limits." The politician responded by describing the criticism as "absurd" and "unfounded." A Controversial Charter for the Media And last week, she caused an outcry when she called on journalists to sign a so-called "media charter for Lower Saxony," in which they were supposed to agree to common standards for reporting about integration efforts in the state.
Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office Berlin News: Hong Kong’s Secretary for Food and Health Visited Germany Dr York Chow, Secretary for Food and Health of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, visited Germany to inform himself about the latest developments in the country’s health care sector. Dr Chow met with Mrs Aygül Özkan, Minister for Social Affairs, Women, Family, Health and Integration in Lower Saxony on 19 May. They briefed each other on health policy in Hong Kong and Germany respectively. Both health care systems are challenged by an aging population and thus, increasing costs in the future. The ministers emphasised that new technologies have to be introduced in the health sector to guarantee a high standard of medical treatment and efficiency without placing excessive burden on government expenditure.

Suzanna Logan, Iain Hunter, Brent Feland, Ty Hopkins, Allen Parcell Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, USA E-mail: email@example.com Web: http://biomech.byu.edu INTRODUCTION During distance running, ground reaction forces (GRF) of more than two times a person’s body weight are typical. Attenuation of GRF has been a major concern for shoe designers and manufacturers, as one of the primary roles for running shoes is to provide shock absorption. Additionally, in competitive shoes such as racing flats and spikes, the weight of the shoe has been reduced to improve performance. In comparison to most regular running shoes, spikes and racing flats have less cushioning and a thinner heel. Several studies have looked at the reduction of GRF in running shoes, but there is a lack of data on the GRF in competitive footwear. Studies comparing barefoot and shod running have found significantly increased loading rates and greater vertical impact peaks in the barefoot condition (De Wit, 2000). The objective of this study was to compare how GRF are influenced while running in training shoes, racing flats and spikes at a given speed, and therefore provide meaningful information that could influence the timing and frequency of the use of competitive footwear in runners.

Riley E. Dunlap Oklahoma State University We examine political polarization over climate change within the American public by analyzing data from 10 nationally representative Gallup Polls between 2001 and 2010. We ﬁnd that liberals and Democrats are more likely to report beliefs consistent with the scientiﬁc consensus and express personal concern about global warming than are conservatives and Republicans. Further, the effects of educational attainment and self-reported understanding on global warming beliefs and concern are positive for liberals and Democrats, but are weaker or negative for conservatives and Republicans. Last, signiﬁcant ideological and partisan polarization has occurred on the issue of climate change over the past decade. The Western experience of modernity—especially technological development, economic growth, material prosperity, urbanization, and democracy—has been built upon industrial capitalism, an economic system predicated on the accelerating extraction and consumption of fossil fuels for energy (Clark and York 2005). A major unintended consequence of the use of fossil fuels is anthropogenic global warming or climate change.1 Recognizing and responding to climate change, arguably the most challenging social problem of the modern era (Giddens 2009), thus poses a fundamental critique of continued modernization processes around the world (Antonio 2009). For two decades, European-based reﬂexive modernization theorists (e.g., Beck, Giddens, and Lash 1994; Mol 1996) have argued that forces of reﬂexivity, particularly science and environmentalism, compel us to confront threats to societal persistence such as climate change.2 In contrast, stimulated by the United States’s long-term, laggard response to climate change, a growing number of scholars have begun calling attention to forces of “anti-reﬂexivity” (McCright and Dunlap 2010)—particularly the industrial sector and the conservative movement—that defend the industrial capitalist order from critique by denying the signiﬁcance of problems such as climate change (also see, e.g., *Direct all correspondence to Aaron M.
