BACKGROUND: To examine the association between objectively measured light-intensity and moderate-to-vigorous-intensity physical activity (MVPA), sedentary behaviors, and biological markers in a national
sample of U.S. pregnant women, as few studies have examined these relationships among this population.
METHODS: The sample of noninstitutionalized U.S. civilians was selected by a complex, multistage...
The Greenbelt Land Trust (GLT) (a grass-roots conservation group in
Oregon) is interested in a conservation plan for the Marys River Corridor. To
facilitate this effort, a resource inventory was required and a Geographic
Information System (GIS) data base used to compile the inventory (called the
Marys River Project (MRP))....
This dissertation presents the Graham Model of Bibliosupervision (GMB). The purpose
of this study is to examine the efficacy of the GMB and its influence on the supervisory
working alliance. Specifically this study examines the effectiveness of a non-linear
approach to counselor supervision that employs children’s literature as part of...
Sixteenth century Elizabeth I of England has long been a figure of interest to
Renaissance scholars, and their work largely focuses on how her gender impacted the
power, politics, and culture of her day. Many have perceived her to be a heroine
whose ingenuity and determination circumvented the limitations imposed...
The effects of a subliminal auditory stimulus on the
motor activity and task performance skills of hyperkinetic
children were investigated. Fifteen boys between seven and
twelve years of age, who were enrolled in one of three
treatment groups for hyperactivity, were recruited for
this study. Each child participated, weekly, in...
GIS technology has reached a point where it can be utilized by nonprofessionals in a desktop environment. This paper reviews the implementation of a pilot project for developing a localized-natural resource GIS. The resulting GIS was custom designed to answer questions posed by fish and wildlife biologists who need to...
Several state and federal agencies have identified Oregon's coastal wetlands as
priority areas for conservation, and in some cases have specifically singled out
nontidal (mostly palustrine) wetlands as a major concern. Recent research has
highlighted the need to study and manage wetlands from a regional perspective that
considers the distribution...
Photoneutron contamination produced during high-energy, external beam radiotherapy can contribute to total patient dose. This aspect of unwanted dose is not currently evaluated for patients undergoing radiation therapy. While multiple studies have examined the neutron dose from beams with energies above 10 MeV, research assessing neutron dose from a 10...
