The purpose of this study was to seek evidence which might
lead to the development of more effective ways of dealing with the
problem of failure to attend school.
Concept of self has long been considered worthy of consideration
in evaluating behavior. It is known that significant experiences
My teaching experiences raised questions about the nature of literacy,
especially about its relationship with education and schooling. Common
sense, straightforward definitions of literacy failed to address those questions
adequately, and that inadequacy led to the study which culminates in this
thesis. In Pursuit of Literacy focuses on literacy in...
A new second order accurate nonuniform grid spacing technique which does not
depend on supraconvergence is developed for Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD)
simulation of general three dimensional structures. The technique is useful for FDTD
simulations of systems which require finer details in small regions of the simulation space by...
The effect of adding a high moisture gel manufactured from a combination
of konjac flour (2%) and kappa carrageenan (1%) to a reduced fat ground beef
system was evaluated. Lean beef (95-10) and 50-50 fat beef trimmings were used
to manufacture reduced fat ground beef patties containing konjac flour/carrageenan
The adenovirus replication origins reside in the inverted terminal
repetition (ITR) sequences. Replication proceeds unidirectionally by a
strand-displacement mechanism from either or both origins to produce
duplex daughter DNA plus a displaced parental strand. The displaced
strand can be duplicated by two different routes. The cis pathway involves
Adenovirus initiates strand-displacement DNA replication from
origins located in identical inverted terminal repetitions (ITRs).
Panhandle structures, formed by base-pairing between ITRs on the
displaced strands, have been proposed as replication intermediates for
complementary strand synthesis. Plasmid molecules containing a single
adenovirus terminal sequence and specially arranged inverted repeat
