The purpose of this paper is the statement and examination of
relevant data pertaining to the subject of trans-Pacific pre-
Columbian contact. The paper's contents will be organized in to
five major areas: oceanography, ship building, archaeology, religion
and history, plus an introduction and conclusion. Each of
these chapters will...
The study of the social dimensions of Shakespeare's art is represented by the work of Mikhail Bakhtin, C.L. Barber, Robert Weimann, Edward Berry, and Michael Bristol. Their work analyzes the background in Elizabethan social practices and popular dramatic traditions that contribute to the form, structure, and meaning of Shakespeare's comedies....
The objectives of this study were to determine whether changes in
the selective pressures which occur in a hatchery could cause inherited
modifications in the behavior of steelhead trout (Salmo gairdneri) that
would affect their survival in the wild. Environmental effects on the
behavior of the offspring of hatchery and...
Due to its importance, the phenomenon of hydrogen
bonding has been the subject of much research over the
years. Among the different techniques used to study
hydrogen bonded systems, vibrational spectroscopy is
perhaps the most sensitive because of the striking
changes induced in molecular spectra by the formation of
Photobiological hydrogen production from live cells of the cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803 encapsulated in silica gel was investigated. Hydrogen is a dense energy carrier with potential to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, provided a renewable and sustainable means of production can be achieved. Under certain conditions, Synechocystis sp. PCC...
From 2002 to 2007, 101 camelid abortions and stillbirths were submitted to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at Oregon State University (84 alpacas, 13 llamas, four unknown). For most of the cases (n=67) a cause was not determined by routine testing. Eighty-five submissions included placenta for microscopic examination of which 55...

The development of bioenergy from biomass has dominated the minds of forest engineering researchers over the last decade. One of the main themes that has been generated from that research is that bioenergy from biomass has major operational hurdles to overcome before becoming economically feasible. More directly, the impact of...
