BEIJING, Aug. 10 (Xinhua) -- With the Olympics having just kicked off in Rio, have you ever fantasized about racing against time in an Olympic sprint, pearls of perspiration running down your face, and snatching that coveted gold medal? Probably. How about doing the same while strapped to a wheelchair?

At an exhibit named ""The Paralympics Spirit -- From Heidelberg to Beijing"" that opened on July 26 in the Olympic Training Center in Heidelberg, Germany, and runs through September, visitors can try out conventional and racing wheelchairs to get a better idea of what it is like to have impaired mobility.

Co-organized by the Beijing Municipal Archives and the Heidelberg Municipal Archives, the exhibit looks back at Heidelberg's host role in the 1972 Paralympics and Beijing's host role in the 2008 Paralympics with display panels, historical photos and a short film on the Beijing Paralympics.

Next to staff from the Heidelberg and Beijing Municipal Archives and the Chinese Consulate in Frankfurt, some of the contemporary witnesses from the 1972 Paralympics were present for the opening ceremony. For example, Hennes Luebbering, a wheelchair-bound athlete, proudly wore his medals to the opening.

Besides being a dignified platform for disabled athletes to compete with their peers, across the decades, the Paralympics have raised awareness of the everyday challenges people with disabilities face and even led to some positive changes.

The exhibit is not only a reflection on the past of the Paralympics, but more importantly a projection of the future -- namely, the social inclusion of disabled people, said Dr. Peter Blum, the director of the Heidelberg Municipal Archives in an email interview. He believed archives have a special role to play in this.

He suggested that archives should make their cultural heritage accessible to help achieve a solution to both contemporary and future problems.

""One could say that today's archives have a socio-political task, so to say, a task that transcends borders and cultural barriers,"" Blum said.


SAN FRANCISCO Authentic Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey , July 4 (Xinhua) -- A new study targeting two ethnic groups of students in the United States indicates that leveraging self-affirmation intervention with existing institutional channels can lead to academic success.

Detailed in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the study focused on a group of middle school Latino students living in the Mountain West, a sub-region of the Western United States, and another group of African American students living in the U.S. Northeast.

The African American students completed writing a series of self-affirmation exercises in the seventh grade while the Latino students were given the exercises in the sixth Jaden Schwartz Jersey , seventh or eighth grades. They chose two to three core values that were personally important such as relationships, creativity or humor, and wrote a few sentences about why they were important.

The exercises took place during stressful times over the course of a single year in middle school, including at the beginning of the school year and right before exams. Students in the control group did a neutral writing assignment.

The researchers then tracked the African American students through college enrollment and Latinos through high school enrollment Vladimir Tarasenko Jersey , using official school records.

For Latinos, long-term follow-ups revealed that they took more challenging courses, such as a college readiness elective. They were also less likely to be placed in remediation. African Americans were more likely to enroll in college seven to nine years later, including in relatively more selective colleges.

"Once students feel affirmed St. Louis Blues Hoodie , a whole series of forces in the environment exist to help propel them forward: teachers noticing their potential more, giving them more challenging work, directing them to advanced courses," J. Parker Goyer St. Louis Blues T-Shirts , the study's lead author and post-doctoral scholar at Stanford University said in a news release.

"The effects can be powerful, but the intervention itself plays a subtle role as an initiator of this larger process."

Previous work has found that social-psychological interventions, such as self-affirmation, can improve academic performance in so-called vulnerable groups in the United States.

The interventions tend to have the biggest effect when people face a looming stressor Customized St. Louis Blues Jersey , such as an upcoming exam, or find themselves at a more broadly stressful transition, as many early adolescents do.

They can also help minority students cope with the threat of negative stereotypes in school. Earlier research by Stanford faculty has shown that such stress over being seen or treated as intellectually limited, the new study states St. Louis Blues Jersey , "may drain cognitive resources that could otherwise be expended on learning."

This stress can lead to lower grades, which breed more stress, setting off a cycle that can be difficult to escape.

Goyer said the team's recent work illustrates how interventions can trigger powerful long-term effects, and the students who begin to perform better are poised to take advantage of resources and opportunities their schools already provide Vladimir Sobotka Blues Jersey , including supportive teachers, advanced courses and college preparation electives.

And a primary reason the intervention succeeded is because it was given in middle school, which is the first time student performance determines educational tracks.

The tracks can also be psychological. Teachers may see students who happen to perform well early on as having more potential, and give more encouragement and attention to such students.

"The tracks we don't see -- the way we are categorized in the minds of others -- can affect us too Colton Parayko Blues Jersey ," said Geoffrey Cohen, the study's senior author and a professor of education and psychology at Stanford.

Noting that academic s.
