This study was an ethnographic case study of a
Vietnamese unaccompanied minor in a post secondary setting.
There were two guiding questions for the study: (1) How
does the subject perceive language as it relates to
educational experience? (2) What kinds of observable
personality, cognitive, or affective factors have
The American philosopher and literary critic Kenneth Burke was an "ideologist" (although he never called himself this, and added to that, he spent most of his life avoiding the Marxist term of ideology to describe human "systems" of ideas). Burke instead used the terms "orientation," "rationalization," "perspective." "critical perspective," "way...
Previous research examining the influences of post-fire salvage logging on abundances of birds has focused primarily on the response of cavity-nesting species. There is limited research in regard to the impact of salvage logging on a broader range of bird species. In addition, little is known about how different intensities...
An ionization chamber was constructed, using a fiberglass wall
sphere, for the purpose of measuring background radiation. The
system consists of the fiberglass wall chamber, 38.85 liters in
volume, air filled, not sealed, used in conjunction with a precision
capacitor, nulling voltage supply and electrometer. It was calibrated
Addition of the methylcarbamate compounds p-chlorophenyl
N-methylcarbamate (PPG-124) and 1-naphthyl N-methylcarbamate
(carbaryl) to various herbicides has resulted in reduced rates of
degradation. Carbaryl affects the degradation of certain herbicides
in both plants and soils while PPG-124 has only been demonstrated
to affect degradation in soils. Both these materials are effective...
Several studies were conducted to determine if a more consistent
predictor of phytotoxicity to winter oats could be obtained with a
surfactant-herbicide ratio or a per-unit-volume concentration of surfactant,
independent of volume. The herbicides tested were 2,2-dichloropropionic acid (dalapon), 1,1'-dimethyl-4, 4'-bipyridinium
(paraquat), and 3-tert-butyl-5-chloro-6-methyluracil (terbacil) with
the nonionic surfactant X-77...
