This study Is a rhetorical analysis of ten documents of Joseph
Smith, Jr's. early revelations spanning the period of 1829 to 1831
to determine the extent to which he used demagogic rhetoric in pursuit
of his goals. A definition of demagoguery is provided and is
applied in an analysis of...
Adsorption kinetic data recorded for α-lactalbumin, β-casein, β-lactoglobulin, bovine
serum albumin and lysozyme at silianized silica surfaces of low and high hydrophobicity,
along with a simple model for adsorption and surfactant-mediated elution of protein, were
used to analyze the removal of each protein by sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) and
The temporal and spatial characteristics of a laser microprobe plume were investigated using the spectroscopic methods of emission, absorption and fluorescence. The plume was produced by rapid vaporization of a small quantity (1 μg) of a solid sample using a focussed pulsed dye laser (110 MW/cm²). For absorption and fluorescence...
From the 1860s into the 1920s Edward Sylvester Morse (1838-1925) was a staunch advocate of Darwinian evolution and of science education in the U. S. and likewise for several years in Japan. He had a major impact on the American public’s understanding of evolution, both before and after he became...
Advancing contact angles formed by water and aqueous ethanol solutions were
measured on both bare surfaces and film-covered surfaces of acrylic, glass, hydrophilic
and hydrophobic silicon, polycarbonate, polyester, and stainless steel. Each bare surface
was initially characterized with respect to its hydrophilic - hydrophobic balance. Both
protein films and milk...
The partitioning of body fluids in the Pacific hagfish was investigated
using several experimental techniques. Direct measurement
of the blood volume was obtained through the simultaneous use
of tagged red blood cells and plasma proteins labeled with Evan's
blue dye. Blood cells obtained from donor animals were incubated
