Throughout the course of this thesis, I argue that the prose of David Foster Wallace, specifically his posthumously published novel The Pale King, inhabits a middle ground between universal sincerity and the particularized authenticity of postmodern irony. I examine Lionel Trilling's definitions of sincerity and authenticity before moving toward an...
This study traces the historical foundations of the concept of
constant ionic proportionality and the equation (Salinity [S%₀] = 1.805
Chlorinity [Cl%₀] + 0.030) which has been in general use in oceanography
since 1902 until 1969 and which is based upon this constancy,
The notion that the constituents present in...
Ocean wave energy is a new and developing field of renewable energy with great potential. The energy contained in one meter of an average wave off the coast of Newport Oregon could supply dozens of homes with electricity. However, ocean waves are usually quite irregular which leads to large bursts...
The western cherry fruit fly, Rhagoletis indifferens
Curran, was studied to determine the suitability of the
sterile insect technique for its control. To obtain
insect material, field collection of maggots is preferred
to sifting of soil or rearing on artificial diet.
The western cherry fruit fly is strictly univoltine;
Understanding charge transfer in organic semiconductors is important for developing
devices like organic light emitting diodes and
flexible electronics. Optical tweezers have
been used in many disciplines for trapping, manipulating, and analyzing microscopic
objects such as microspheres, micro-organisms, and other colloidal particles. Using
optical tweezers, studies have measured the average...
