Throughout the course of this thesis, I argue that the prose of David Foster Wallace, specifically his posthumously published novel The Pale King, inhabits a middle ground between universal sincerity and the particularized authenticity of postmodern irony. I examine Lionel Trilling's definitions of sincerity and authenticity before moving toward an...
The central purposes of this study were to review the
historical sources of David Kolb's formulation of experiential
learning theory, and to determine the effect and
application of Kolb's theory and Learning Style Inventory
as reflected in the literature between 1971 and 1990.
It was found that Kolb based his...
Despite the considerable advances of deposition technologies, it remains a significant challenge to form conformal deposition on surface of nanoporous carbons. Here, we introduce a new ambient hydrolysis deposition method that employs and controls pre-adsorbed water vapor on nanoporous carbons to define the deposition of TiO₂. We converted the deposited...

Lateral heel wedge orthotics are designed to reduce medial tibiofemoral joint loading and pain in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). To date, the efficacy of long-term lateral heel wedge orthotics use among OA patients has not been determined. This study evaluated the extent to which lateral heel wedge orthotics reduced...
The purpose of this study was to find what effect temperature
and immunization has on the phagocytic activity of fish leukocytes
against certain disease causing bacteria. Also proposed was the
isolation and characterization of a leukocytolytic factor produced by
one of these bacteria, Aeromonas salmonicida.
Investigations revealed that temperature had...
A project funded by the Southern California Edison (SCE) Company, Research
Center of Irwindale, California, has supported the development of a performance and
parameter prediction software program for use during the refurbishment of large
synchronous machines, turbine generators, and synchronous condensers. The computer
program was developed for SCE to allow...
A home computer revolution is predicted to change America in the
next 20 years. If this is to occur, a consumer must perceive the
home computer as a technological resource. According to consumer
behavior studies, acceptance of a new product is based on internal
determinants, which are affected by environmental...
This paper studies the current counternarcotics methods and the electronics technology used by the United States and Colombian governments to combat narcoterrorism in the Andean region. The efficiency and efficacy of these methods with the use of electronics technology are analyzed to determine if they are
successful. The current counternarcotics...
Evidence supporting the contribution of American high school
curricula to student transition from school to work was inconclusive.
Social science research indicated that high school programs had little
effect upon student achievement after leaving school. This study
developed a model to identify factors that influence the transition
from school to...
