Over the past 10 years there has been much research
on various aspects of gender-role orientation.
Specifically, many studies have explored gender-role
orientation as a predictor of psychological adjustment.
Findings suggest that masculine and androgynous
individuals are high on psychological adjustment whereas,
feminine and undifferentiated individuals score lower on
In situ bioremediation of pentachlorophenol-contaminated ground water in a sequential
anaerobic-aerobic down borehole permeable barrier reactor requires a non-toxic primary
substrate for dichlorophenol cometabolism. Serum bottle tests comparing the
effectiveness of eight primary substrates for aerobic dichlorophenol degradation showed
phenol to be the most effective followed by imitation vanilla flavoring,...
Adsorptive bubble-separation processes are used to
remove adsorptive contaminants from wastewater. A
mathematical model was developed for the adsorptive bubble
separation processes in a countercurrent column. The model
included an assumption that linear adsorption of the solute
occurred on the gas bubbles. Predictions indicated that
aqueous column height has less...
Tuberculosis (TB) is a pressing global health issue with approximately one third of the world’s population infected by this bacterium. As one of the most dangerous infectious diseases, it has killed approximately 1.7 million people of all ages around the world per year (World Health Organization, 2016). Currently, several drugs...
Mensacarcin is a stereogenic complex polyketide with potent anti-tumor activity produced by a soil-dwelling Streptomyces bottropensis. The US National Cancer Institute (NCI) 60 human tumor cell line anticancer drug screen (NCI-60) reveals mensacarcin’s cytostatic properties in almost all tested cell lines and distinct cytotoxic properties specifically in eight melanoma cell...
Exploring bioactive natural products has contributed largely to clinically approved drugs we have been using over the last 100 years. Especially among the anti-infective drugs, around 70% of currently used antibiotics were discovered or derived from microbial secondary metabolites, among them compounds like vancomycin, chloramphenicol, and erythromycin. Facing the unavoidable...
Prior to eruption at mid-ocean ridges, melts must travel through >6 km of crust from their origin in the mantle. The final composition of the melts is dependent on both the melting conditions and magmatic processes within the crust. While mid-ocean ridge basalt (MORB) glasses are commonly used to infer...
Two econometric models were developed to forecast consumption,
production, and price of hardwood lumber, and removals and price
of hardwood sawlog stumpage. Four eastern U.S. regions were represented
in the models. Hardwood lumber consumption by manufacturing,
shipping, residential construction, and nonresidential construction
industries was recognized. Hardwood sawlog stumpage removals from...
The aims of physical education in Ghana include developing personal qualities
such as competence in students and generating interest in physical education and sports
(Ghana Education Service, [GES], 1987). The GES has also reiterated the need to have
competent teachers in the implementation of the school physical education syllabus;
