Ninety-six couples were studied during the transition to parenthood in order to assess a) relative contributions of equity and traditionality in sex role attitudes to marital satisfaction prior to parenthood, b) changes in marital satisfaction and equity after the birth of the infant and c) contributions of traditionality, equity, father...
The purpose of this paper is to provide, at a basic level,
product layouts for an order picking warehouse that will minimize
average order picking time. A statistical model is developed to
ensure that optimal results rather than just 'good' results are
obtained. It is shown that simple but general...
An automated radiochemical flow analysis (ARFA) system was developed which integrates chemical and radiochemical techniques into one system through the use of a microcomputer. The operator, through the microcomputer, controls valves and pumps to transfer sample and reagent solutions to counting loops, ion exchange columns and holdup reservoirs. A Ge(Li)...
Efficiency of nitrogen fertilizer uptake by soft white winter
wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was measured over two cropping seasons
across a range of soils and cropping histories in the Willamette
Valley. Fate and potential losses of applied nitrogen were also
assessed over a seventeen month period.
In both cropping seasons,...
Two studies which were similar in protocol were conducted.
Following a preliminary baseline period of 7 days, in which the
subjects consumed their self-chosen diets, they received 3 eggs daily
for 4 weeks. Depending upon the changes in plasma cholesterol in
response to 3 eggs daily, the subjects in studies...
Soil moisture in a crop's root zone must be regularly
monitored to accurately predict crop water requirements.
Most irrigation scheduling services currently
use the neutron probe to monitor soil moisture. Unfortunately,
there is a degree of variability associated
with use of the neutron probe creating uncertainty in
measurements of soil...
