Steven Universe, a relatively new show from Cartoon Network, explores an unexpectedly complex understanding of gender through their main protagonists. Utilizing Judith Butler’s work on gender performativity and doing gender, as well as Daniel Dennett’s conception of the self as a theorist’s fiction, and Alexander Weheliye’s understanding of power and...
Some elementary teachers want to be more child-centered in their
teaching. They are trying to consider the needs of the students
before the coverage of curriculum. Much of the inspiration for this
educational approach has come from the British primary schools.
The purpose of this study was to see if...
This research provides information on the distribution of an
unexploited Roosevelt elk population in unaltered habitat in Olympic
National Park. Radio-telemetry was used to document home range and
habitat use by 11 adult cow elk in the Hoh Valley during March 1978,
from 10 June-15 September 1978, and from 1...
Only very recently has modern technology been applied
to the design of the tennis racket. In fact, the tennis
player of a few hundred years ago would easily recognize
today's racket. Although the literature reveals a surprising
number of studies on racket mechanics, little work has been
reported on the...
A microfluidic nanofiltration module has been designed, fabricated and applied to the continuous-flow, pressure-driven, post-synthetic purification of macromolecules and nanoparticles via diafiltration using a commercially available organic solvent resistant nanofiltration membrane, STARMEM 122. This module will readily interface with other microscale components within a
"nanofactory" for the rapid synthesis, purification...
Two studies were conducted to determine the in vitro
metabolic and hormonal effects on glucose 6-phosphate
dehydrogenase activity (G6PD) in bovine mammary explants.
Study I was conducted to determine the effects of
palmitoyl CoA (5 and 25 uM), acetate (1 and 10 mM),
spermidine (0.4 mM) and putrescine (0.4 mM)...
The effects of plant population densities on the growth and development
of six cultivars of bush snap beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)
were studied in two field experiments. A systematic planting design
was used to achieve a range of densities from 21- to 110 plants per
m² and a rectangularity of...
This research examines the response from the National Rifle Association (NRA) to the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.
