Major emphasis of this research study involved the evaluation
of nutrient transport by overland flow. Samples gathered at various
distances relative to a swine-waste spray irrigation system were
used for the nutrient evaluation.
As a result of this study, the following conclusions are made:
1. It is improbable that the...
The Columbia Basin once supported a diversity of native fishes and large runs of anadromous salmonids
that sustained substantial fisheries and cultural values. Extensive land conversion, watershed disruptions,
and subsequent fishery declines have led to one of the most ambitious restoration programs in the world.
Progress has been made, but...
Objective: To examine the pricing trajectories in the United States of disease-modifying therapies (DMT) for multiple sclerosis (MS) over the last 20 years and assess the influences on rising prices.
Methods: We estimated the trend in annual drug costs for 9 DMTs using published drug pricing data from 1993 to...
The merits of the photoelastic coating technique as applied to
wood were evaluated. Comparative tests were made on 12 nominal
two-by-four Douglas Fir boards. The object of these tests was to
determine the limitations of this technique, such as accuracy and
complexity of experimental procedure. Correlation of the experimental
In this work, a method for solving the differential form of the radiative transfer equation was implemented into an existing three-dimensional thermal-hydraulic computer program known as TEMPEST. The method used was the P-l approximation, where the angular distribution of the radiation intensity is represented by a truncated series of spherical...
My thesis explores the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth as emblematic of Western philosophy and literature's longstanding preoccupation with the relationship between mind and matter. The poets' attempts to mediate their languages and sensibilities with "real nature" have a complicated legacy for today's readers, as Romantic literature...
The attachment of myristic acid to the N-terminal glycine residue of many
eukaryotic and viral proteins is often essential for the acquisition of the protein's
biological activity. Vaccinia virus (VV), the prototype member of the Poxviridae,
expresses several myristylated proteins during the course of infection. Only one of
This study was undertaken as a result of an interest in the
present and future purposes and functions of higher education.
American society and higher education are moving through a period
of change. Since each shapes and is shaped by the other, change in
either may require a review and...
