Surrogate motherhood is a very complex issue with
many groups having vested interests. In order to measure
attitudes specific to surrogacy a 20-item Likert Scale
with high reliability was developed through item analysis
(N=131, Part-whole correlation range 0.749-0.478).
Correlation of surrogacy attitudes was subsequently
related to six other instruments: AIDS,...
A publication containing advice on a wide range of gardening topics, including composting, container gardens, fall/winter gardens, fertilizing, insect pests, plant diseases, planting guidelines, raised beds, site selection, slugs, soil improvement, tilling, warm-season crops, watering, and weeds. Includes regional tips for various parts of Oregon.
This investigation was designed to assess the effects of a victim's
race and stereotypical characteristics on another subject's willingness
to administer punishment within the context of a teacher-learner paradigm.
In addition, this study sought to empirically test the validity of the
social-psychological theory that states that theories of social behavior...
This study was designed to assess the effects of political
participation upon hostility and the preference for violence.
To investigate this problem a political participation scale was
developed. 148 male subjects (mean age 22.6 years) and 93 female
subjects (mean age 20.7 years) responded to the Political Participation Scale, the...
Anaerobic digestion of lipid-extracted algal biomass has been proposed as a method to
recover and recycle nutrients in algal biofuel systems. The purpose of this study was to quantify recoverable nitrogen and phosphorus from anaerobically digested C. vulgaris. Recoverable nutrients were deemed those present in the liquid phase of anaerobic...

Author Nella Larsen and photographer James VanDerZee are two of the most canonical figures of Harlem Renaissance studies, whose respective novels and portraits have been explored extensively, if separately, by scholars. Both Larsen's 1929 novel Passing and VanDerZee's studio portraiture of the 1920s and 1930s have been read in terms...
Results of ⁴⁰Ar–³⁹Ar Ar dating constrain the age of the submerged volcanic succession, part of the seaward-dip ping reflector
sequence of the Southeast Greenland volcanic rifted margin, recovered during Leg 163. At the 3°Ne 6 drilling transect, the fully
normally magnetized volcanic units at Holes 989B (Unit 1) and 990A...
⁴⁰Ar-³⁹Ar incremental heating experiments were performed on volcanic rocks recovered by drilling during Ocean Drilling
Program Leg 152, southeast Greenland Margin (63°N), and Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 81, southwest Rockall Plateau
(56°N). Both of these legs drilled into thick sections of submerged lava flows, known as seaward-dipping reflector sequences,...
Agonistic behavior among three species of Microtus live-trapped
near Corvallis, Oregon was recorded in order to interpret habitat
segregation by the species in areas of syrnpatry. The method used to
measure agonistic interaction was similar to that of Colvin (1970).
Agonistic behavior was recorded under red light in a neutral...
