California State University, Northridge's Art Galleries will host the 16th Annual High School Art Invitational from Jan. 7 to 26, showcasing student and faculty art from 37 San Fernando Valley high schools.

"This community event gives high school students an opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery," said Michelle Giacopuzzi, exhibitions coordinator for CSUN's Art Galleries. "It can be used on their resumes if they are inclined to continue working in the art field."

Each school is allowed to display up to six pieces of student art of various mediums, ranging from oil paintings to digital graphic design, bringing an estimated 240 student pieces to the Main Gallery.

Concurrently, more than 30 pieces by the high schools' art teachers, many of whom are graduates of the CSUN art education department, will be featured in the West Gallery. "The invitational is a great way to showcase young talent at the higher- education level," said Alydia Adamczyk, an El Camino Real High School visual arts teacher. "I've been on it from its first year and have witnessed how hyped the kids are when they see their work in the gallery."

The following high schools will be participating: Arleta, Birmingham Community Charter, Bishop Alemany, Campbell Hall, Chaminade College Prep, Chatsworth, Concordia, Amelia Earhart, El Camino Real Charter, Faith Baptist, Granada Hills Charter, Grover Cleveland, Harvard Westlake, Heritage Christian, Highland Hall, James Monroe, John H. Francis Polytechnic, Louisville, Milken Community, New Community Jewish, North Hollywood, North Valley Charter Academy, Northridge Academy, Notre Dame, Reseda, Sherman Oaks CES, Sierra Canyon, Stoney Point, Sylmar, The Buckley School, Ulysses S. Grant, Valley Alternative, Van Nuys, Verdugo Hills, Viewpoint School, William H. Taft and William T. Aggeler.

A reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, Jan. 25, from 7 to 9 p.m. with refreshments and a performance by the CSUN music department's Masanga Marimba. Not only does the event benefit the direct participants, it benefits the art and arts education communities, Giacopuzzi said.

"I hear from many high school art teachers that it is useful to them to see what other schools are doing and perhaps use this information for their own curriculum," she said. For more information about the Art Galleries and its exhibits, visit its website at

At Children's families experience coordinated, next-generation care, delivered by a compassionate, multidisciplinary team of leaders in the pediatric cardiology field. One of the largest pediatric cardiovascular programs in the region. Studies have shown that high volumes are associated with high quality and better outcomes, because experience is a major factor in quality of care. Wort was traditionally prescribed in parts of Europe for depression (in addition to use as a general-purpose tea), and Chinese medicine developed elaborate lists of herbs and preparations. With the scientific revolution in Europe and the United States, the use of traditional herbal remedies fell out of favor with the mainstream medical establishment, although a few people continued to use and maintain knowledge of traditional European herblore. In the early 20th century, scientists began reassessing this rejection of traditional herbs in medicine. Vorzüge eines intakten und lebendigen Gemeinschaftslebens bewahren.

Descriptive and quantitative transcriptome analyses are important for interpreting the functional elements of the genome and revealing the molecular constituents of cells and tissues. It is known that sperm function can be affected by ASG proteins, including the processes of capacitation and the acrosome reaction, as well as canadian pharmacy accutane sperm motility, DNA integrity and interaction with the oocyte.

This interaction of PDC-109 with the sperm cell membrane results in an efflux of cholesterol and choline phospholipids, that appears to be important for capacitation. The main changes in spermatozoa that occur during epididymal maturation are the ability to move, recognize and bind to the ZP, and to fuse with the plasma membrane of the oocyte..

The reasons for this are practical: many individuals in these families have a large number of nevi, and complete removal of them all is not feasible, since new atypical nevi continue to develop. In addition, individuals with increased susceptibility to melanoma may have cancer arise de novo, without a precursor lesion such as a nevus. The disadvantages of screening include the limitations of available noninvasive testing methods and the risks associated with invasive screening procedures.
