The Haunting of Hill House

topic

The Haunting of Hill House

The Haunting of Hill House is a 1959 gothic horror novel by American author Shirley Jackson. A finalist for the National Book Award and considered one of the best literary ghost stories published during the 20th century,[1] it has been made into two feature films and a play, and is the basis of the eponymous television series. Jackson's novel relies on terror rather than horror to elicit emotion in the reader, using complex relationships between the mysterious events in the house and the characters’ psyches. Development The author decided to write "a ghost story" after reading about a group of nineteenth century "psychic researchers" who studied a house and somberly reported their supposedly scientific findings to the Society for Psychic Research. What Jackson discovered in their "dry reports was not the story of a haunted house, it was the story of several earnest, I believe misguided, certainly determined people, with their differing motivations and background." Excited by the prospect of creating her own ...more...

Immunophysics

Immunophysics is a novel interdisciplinary research field using immunological, biological, physical and chemical approaches to elucidate and modify immune-mediated mechanisms and to expand our knowledge on the pathomechanisms of chronic immune-mediated diseases such as arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma and chronic infections. Background Immune reactions are tightly regulated and usually self-limited.[1][2] Dysregulation can result in chronic inflammatory diseases (immunochronicity). In addition to biochemical molecular mechanisms, physical factors influence the immune system. Such components include: Microenvironmental factors like tonicity, pH, oxygen pressure and the redox status of immune cells[3][4][5][6][7][8][9] Mechanical factors, such as tissue pressure, cellular stiffness and cell motility[10][11] Cell membrane physics such as membrane composition and particles[12] The research field of immunophysics aims to investigate the influence of these physicochemical parameters on the f ...more...

Monk Dubiel

Walter John "Monk" Dubiel (February 12, 1918 – October 23, 1969) was an American professional baseball player, a right-handed pitcher in the Major Leagues for the New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs. The native and lifelong resident of Hartford, Connecticut, stood 6 feet (1.83 m) tall and weighed 190 pounds (86 kg). Dubiel pitched for 14 seasons (1941–54) in professional ball and spent five full seasons and part of two others in the Majors between 1944 and 1952.
