On the Hereditary Paracompactness of Locally Compact, Hereditarily Normal Spaces
We establish that if it is consistent that there is a
supercompact cardinal, then it is consistent that every locally
compact, hereditarily normal space which does not include a perfect
preimage of $\omega_1$ is hereditarily paracompact.

Indicators, Chains, Antichains, Ramsey Property
We introduce two Ramsey classes of finite relational structures. The first
class contains finite structures of the form $(A,(I_{i})_{i=1}^{n},\leq
,(\preceq _{i})_{i=1}^{n})$ where $\leq $ is a total ordering on $A$ and $%
\preceq _{i}$ is a linear ordering on the set $\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$. The
second class contains structures of the form $(A,\leq
,(I_{i})_{i=1}^{n},\preceq )$ where $(A,\leq )$ is a weak ordering and $%
\preceq $ is a linear ordering on $A$ such that $A$ is partitioned by $%
\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$ into maximal chains in the partial ordering $\leq $ and
each $\{a\in A:I_{i}(a)\}$ is an interval with respect to $\preceq $.

2dimensional Convexity Numbers and $P_4$free Graphs
For $S\subseteq\mathbb R^n$ a set
$C\subseteq S$ is an $m$clique if the convex hull of no $m$element subset of
$C$ is contained in $S$.
We show that there is essentially just one way to construct
a closed set $S\subseteq\mathbb R^2$ without an uncountable
$3$clique that is not the union of countably many convex sets.
In particular, all such sets have the same convexity number;
that is, they
require the same number of convex subsets to cover them.
The main result follows from an analysis of the convex structure of closed
sets in $\mathbb R^2$ without uncountable 3cliques in terms of
clopen, $P_4$free graphs on Polish spaces.

Universal Minimal Flows of Groups of Automorphisms of Uncountable Structures
It is a wellknown fact, that the greatest ambit for
a topological group $G$ is the Samuel compactification of $G$ with
respect to the right uniformity on $G.$ We apply the original
description by Samuel from 1948 to give a simple computation of the
universal minimal flow for groups of automorphisms of uncountable
structures using FraÃ¯ssÃ© theory and Ramsey theory. This work
generalizes some of the known results about countable structures.

Ziegler's Indecomposability Criterion
Ziegler's Indecomposability Criterion is used to prove that a totally
transcendental, i.e., $\Sigma$pure injective, indecomposable left
module over a left noetherian ring is a directed union of finitely
generated indecomposable modules. The same criterion is also used to
give a sufficient condition for a pure injective indecomposable module
${_R}U$ to have an indecomposable local dual $U_R^{\sharp}.$

A Note on Conjectures of F. Galvin and R. Rado
In 1968, Galvin conjectured that an uncountable poset $P$ is the
union of countably many chains if and only if this is true for every
subposet $Q \subseteq P$ with size $\aleph_1$. In 1981, Rado
formulated a similar conjecture that an uncountable interval graph $G$ is countably
chromatic if and only if this is true for every induced subgraph $H
\subseteq G$ with size $\aleph_1$. TodorÄeviÄ has shown
that Rado's Conjecture is consistent relative to the existence of a
supercompact cardinal, while the consistency of Galvin's Conjecture
remains open. In this paper, we survey and collect a variety of
results related to these two conjectures. We also show that the
extension of Rado's conjecture to the class of all chordal graphs is
relatively consistent with the existence of a supercompact cardinal.

Productively LindelÃ¶f Spaces May All Be $D$
We give easy proofs that (a) the Continuum Hypothesis implies that if
the product of $X$ with every LindelÃ¶f space is LindelÃ¶f, then $X$ is
a $D$space, and (b) Borel's Conjecture implies every Rothberger space
is Hurewicz.

On Modules Whose Proper Homomorphic Images Are of Smaller Cardinality
Let $R$ be a commutative ring with identity, and let $M$ be a
unitary module over $R$. We call $M$ Hsmaller (HS for short) if and only if
$M$ is infinite and $M/N<M$ for every nonzero submodule $N$ of
$M$. After a brief introduction, we show that there exist nontrivial
examples of HS modules of arbitrarily large cardinality over
Noetherian and nonNoetherian domains. We then prove the following
result: suppose $M$ is faithful over $R$, $R$ is a domain (we will
show that we can restrict to this case without loss of generality),
and $K$ is the quotient field of $R$. If $M$ is HS over $R$, then
$R$ is HS as a module over itself, $R\subseteq M\subseteq K$, and
there exists a generating set $S$ for $M$ over $R$ with $S<R$.
We use this result to generalize a problem posed by Kaplansky and
conclude the paper by answering an open question on JÃ³nsson
modules.

On Antichains of Spreading Models of Banach Spaces
We show that for every separable Banach space $X$,
either $\mathrm{SP_w}(X)$ (the set of all spreading models
of $X$ generated by weaklynull sequences in $X$, modulo
equivalence) is countable, or $\mathrm{SP_w}(X)$ contains an
antichain of the size of the continuum. This answers
a question of S.~J. Dilworth, E. Odell, and B. Sari.

A Comment on ``$\mathfrak{p} < \mathfrak{t}$''
Dealing with the cardinal invariants ${\mathfrak p}$ and
${\mathfrak t}$ of the continuum, we prove that
${\mathfrak m}={\mathfrak p} = \aleph_2\ \Rightarrow\ {\mathfrak t} =\aleph_2$.
In other words, if ${\bf MA}_{\aleph_1}$ (or a weak version of
this) holds, then (of course $\aleph_2\le {\mathfrak p}\le
{\mathfrak t}$ and) ${\mathfrak p}=\aleph_2\ \Rightarrow\
{\mathfrak p}={\mathfrak t}$. The proof is based on a criterion
for ${\mathfrak p}<{\mathfrak t}$.

On Axiomatizability of NonCommutative $L_p$Spaces
It is shown that Schatten $p$classes
of operators between Hilbert spaces of different (infinite)
dimensions have ultrapowers which are (completely) isometric to
noncommutative $L_p$spaces. On the other hand, these Schatten
classes are not themselves isomorphic to noncommutative $L_p$
spaces. As a consequence, the class of noncommutative $L_p$spaces
is not axiomatizable in the firstorder language developed by
Henson and Iovino for normed space structures, neither in the
signature of Banach spaces, nor in that of operator spaces. Other
examples of the same phenomenon are presented that belong to the
class of corners of noncommutative $L_p$spaces. For $p=1$ this
last class, which is the same as the class of preduals of ternary
rings of operators, is itself axiomatizable in the signature of
operator spaces.

Dow's Principle and $Q$Sets
A $Q$set is a set of reals every subset of which is a relative
$G_\delta$. We investigate the combinatorics of $Q$sets and
discuss a question of Miller and Zhou on the size $\qq$ of the smallest
set of reals which is not a $Q$set. We show in particular that various
natural lower bounds for $\qq$ are consistently strictly smaller than
$\qq$.
