Cognitive rehabilitation therapy: What is it and why are we not utilizing it?
Abstract

Rehabilitation is a medical process that one may go through after a traumatic event, like a stroke or a traumatic brain injury, to return to their baseline normal physical self. Medical providers like physical therapists or speech therapists often are involved in this therapy process through speech and physical therapy for a specified length of time or until the patient shows improvement and they no longer need therapy. However, the patient with a cognitive dysfunction after an injury cannot reach what was perhaps their normal mental self without cognitive rehabilitation therapy (CRT). For some, the normal they seek to return to is beyond the realm of traditional therapy and simply a physical deficit. That is where CRT can benefit patients in their rehabilitation process with disabilities in their cognitive function, which are not as obvious to others, like a limp or a slurred speech.

M|G|∞ queue busy period length with PME distribution analysis through Laplace transform
Abstract

In this article it is shown that if the busy period of a M|G|∞ queue system is PME distributed, the respective service time is a random variable with a long-tail distribution. The result is obtained through Laplace transforms analysis.
Keywords: M|G|∞, busy period, PME distribution, long-tail distribution, Laplace transform

Critical Realism in Charles Dickens’s in “David Copperfield”
Abstract

Using a close reading through the strong analysis of the character development methodology through which the narrative shapes David Copperfield as Victorian novel which opens up interesting perspectives in reading I will highlight the influence of Critical Realism in the work of Charles Dickens. Furthermore, this methodology, which facilitates and accelerates the text comprehension although it is characterized by inter-textuality, will exfoliate remarkably the author’s philosophy and ethics utilized in this work.
Keywords: Critical Realism; Victorian novel; character development; text narrative; social voices
