  • Regulating Digital Health Care for the Cognitively Impaired

    Huber, Kathryn; Sklar, Tara; University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law (American Health Law Association, 2024)
    Americans are living longer, and delivering high-quality, effective, and cost-efficient health care remains critically important, especially as the number of older adults with cognitive impairment increases. Relatedly, a growing number of older adults are preferring to “age in place” and receive care in their homes. This preference aligns with advances being made in digital health technologies (e.g., remote patient monitoring devices, telehealth) and Medicare coverage for in-home virtual health care services. However, efforts to integrate digital health care into the lives of older adults living with cognitive impairments present unique barriers and challenges due to their confused mental state or fluctuating capacity, which can limit their ability to provide meaningful informed consent; their vulnerability to privacy violations regarding their health data; their lack of digital health equity; difficulties operating the technology, navigating online platforms and applications; and effectively communicating with their providers. These challenges usually result in this particular demographic being far less likely to participate in the digital health ecosystem compared to their younger counterparts. This Article will address those challenges and their related regulatory and legal hurdles and will propose reforms for emerging models of digital health care that address the current shortcomings in caring for older adults with cognitive impairment.

  • Arizona Range Grasses: Their Description, Forage Value, and Grazing Management

    Ruyle, George B.; Young, Deborah Jean (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2003)
    From the Foreword by George B. Ruyle and Deborah J. Young: The need to reprint Arizona Range Grasses has been evident for some time. The grass family is one of the largest and most important families of flowering plants. Over half of the genera and nearly one-third of the grass species are found in Arizona. Many people enjoy the natural resources of Arizona and are interested in learning the names of the grasses. As with bird watching, an interest in grasses can greatly add to the enjoyment of nature. Additionally, ranchers and professional resource managers continue to require technical sources of information on rangelands. In this new edition, the text has been updated from the classic volume originally written by Professor R.R. Humphrey. Many changes have occurred in the scientific names. These were brought to current usage by John and Charlotte Reeder, visiting scholars at the University of Arizona (1997). These changes and their other suggestions required great expertise and much time. Additionally, at the suggestion and under the guidance of Dr. Mitch McClaran and help of Katie Meyer we have added a table of synonyms to help track these changes. Dr. McClaran also helped with the addition of growing season and origin. We wish to express our appreciation to them and to Robert Casler, who located the original line drawings for reprinting and did much to see the new edition into print. While more details are now known about the responses of grasses to defoliation, the general principles of grazing management remain similar to those Dr. Humphrey discussed in his original grass descriptions. Grazing intensity, frequency and season of use are the primary factors that determine how well grasses tolerate grazing. Moderate levels of use and periodic growing season deferment from grazing are common management prescriptions. Less consideration is given today to plant food reserves as the major control of grass regrowth following grazing. More recent research indicates that the ability to rapidly regrow after being grazed is controlled by many factors, and that this ability is critical to plant recovery following grazing. Grasses have many values beyond their use as forage, including watershed protection and natural beauty. Livestock grazing, however, continues to be a major land use in Arizona and is primarily supported by native grasses growing on rangelands. It is our hope that this book will provide a basis for the sound management of these rangeland resources and save as a tool for naturalists and others interested in grasses.
  • What Do Librarians Need to Know about Quantitative Methods in Digital Humanities?

  • Orchestrating the critical: Library instruction programs and our labor (BTAA Keynote)

    Pagowsky, Nicole; University of Arizona Libraries (2024-04-18)
    Conceptualizing and incorporating critical information literacy into our instruction programs at the intersections of pedagogy, campus dynamics, relationships with faculty, threats to higher education, and burnout in our labor of primarily one-shot instruction models. Discussions for more sustainable library instruction programs are brought forward with an example of UArizona Libraries' critical information literacy tutorials that engage a Teach the Teacher approach.
  • Democratizing Law Librarianship: Reducing Barriers to Entry through Alternative Pathways to the Profession and Increased Support to Students. A Call to Action

    Miguel-Stearns, Teresa M.; Laskowski, Casandra; University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law, Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library (Informa UK Limited, 2024-04-02)
    Law librarianship is a constantly evolving profession driven by the evolution of law practice, legal education, government, and law itself. Changes in these drivers are in turn influenced by factors such as technology, culture, client needs, American Bar Association Standards, bar exams, diversity and access efforts, faculty research, instructional trends, and law school rankings. Law librarians proudly keep up with these changes—and even stay ahead of them—as we impart new knowledge and skills to users of law libraries and legal information resources. As we proceed through the third decade of the twenty-first century, the legal information profession is engaged in dialogue about the perpetually shrinking pools of qualified candidates for law librarian positions. Additionally, law librarians have been lamenting for decades that the legal information profession does not accurately reflect the diversity in our communities. The literature reflects that those conversations began in earnest in the 1970s and continue today. This article addresses both compelling issues and offers concrete strategies to tackle them simultaneously, thoughtfully, and intentionally. The entire profession is invited to play a role in this effort.
  • Addressing structural hurdles for metadata extraction from environmental impact statements

    Laparra, Egoitz; Binford‐Walsh, Alex; Emerson, Kirk; Miller, Marc L.; López‐Hoffman, Laura; Currim, Faiz; Bethard, Steven; School of Information, University of Arizona; School of Government and Public Policy, University of Arizona; James E. Rogers College of Law, University of Arizona; et al. (Wiley, 2023-06-14)
    Natural language processing techniques can be used to analyze the linguistic content of a document to extract missing pieces of metadata. However, accurate metadata extraction may not depend solely on the linguistics, but also on structural problems such as extremely large documents, unordered multi-file documents, and inconsistency in manually labeled metadata. In this work, we start from two standard machine learning solutions to extract pieces of metadata from Environmental Impact Statements, environmental policy documents that are regularly produced under the US National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. We present a series of experiments where we evaluate how these standard approaches are affected by different issues derived from real-world data. We find that metadata extraction can be strongly influenced by nonlinguistic factors such as document length and volume ordering and that the standard machine learning solutions often do not scale well to long documents. We demonstrate how such solutions can be better adapted to these scenarios, and conclude with suggestions for other NLP practitioners cataloging large document collections.

  • Tort Liability for Physical Harm to the Police Arising from Protest: Common-Law Principles for a Politicized World

    Bublick, Ellen M.; Bambauer, Jane R.; University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law (DePaul University School of Law, 2024)
    When police officers bring tort suits for physical harms suffered during protest, courts must navigate two critically important sets of values—on the one hand, protesters’ rights to free speech and assembly, and on the other, the value of officers’ lives, health, and rights of redress. This year courts, including the United States Supreme Court, must decide who, if anyone, can be held accountable for severe physical harms suffered by police called upon to respond to protest. Two highly visible cases well illustrate the trend. In one, United States Capitol Police officers were injured on January 6, 2021, during organized attempts to overturn the results of the U.S. presidential election. In the other, a Baton Rouge police officer suffered traumatic brain injury when he was hit by an object thrown by an unidentified protester during a Black Lives Matter protest that sought to block a highway in front of police headquarters. In this article, Professors Bublick and Bambauer argue that courts analyzing common-law liability claims for physical injuries suffered by police in the highly political circumstances of protest, would be well-advised to work through a list of content-neutral questions. Such a list could help courts maximize states’ legitimate interests in officer safety, while minimizing impacts on protestors’ legitimate First Amendment activity. We juxtapose these political contexts to create an analytical framework that recognizes the threats involved, to both speech and safety, without as great a risk of ideological distortion. Courts in both the January 6th case and the Black Lives Matter case have failed to accommodate both physical safety interests and First Amendment issues.
