The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of
various auditory metronomic rates on addition performance of
selected second-graders in Lindsay, California, and thereby test the
theory that when such rates "approach and reach personal tempo the
individual enjoys an optimal circumstance for learning" (Barsch,
1974, p. 5)....
In a discrete review inventory process, when the demand
forms a stochastically convergent sequence of random variables,
it seems reasonable that the optimal stationary (s, S) inventory
policy will be a function of the limiting demand and cost structure
only. The intent of this paper is to provide a rigorous...
This study describes the soils, vegetation and age structure
of the Pinus contorta forests of Crater Lake National Park. Growth
rates of P. contorta, and levels of infection and impact of dwarf
mistletoe (Arceuthobium americanu1r) on growth of P. contorta
individuals are compared among communities.
Vegetation description is based on...
In October, 2016, presidential candidate Donald Trump released a document titled “Contract with the American Voter.” This document promised, among many things, that within his first 100 days of his potential presidency, he would repeal and replace Obamacare. When he was unable to fulfill that promise, he employed rhetorical tactics...
The purpose of this study was to monitor coronary responses
occurring in the S-T segment of an electrocardiogram before, during
and after exercise following a "standard" carbohydrate-loading schedule with varied vitamin B-6 supplementation. The study was conducted
using four college-aged males who had been training a minimum of two
This thesis traces the relationship between the First World War, constructions of masculinity, and the life and poetry of T.S. Eliot. Central to this relationship is a study of homoeroticism, which the author characterizes as different from homosexuality but not exclusive of it, in late 19th and early 20th century...
Within The Lamplighter, a novel written in 1854, Maria
Susanna Cummins defines a version of the sentimental novel
that significantly differs from the prescriptive analysis
male critics have offered for the genre. This thesis
argues that feminist theory and recent rhetorical theory
have caused a critical paradigm shift that has...
Adult male guinea pigs were maintained on four dietary regimens
for a period of 8 weeks. The basic diet consisted of powdered guinea
pig chow with 10% coconut oil. The three experimental groups
received the basic diet with additions of either 1% lecithin, 0.25%
cholesterol, or 0.25% cholesterol plus 1%...
The cyclopropene fatty acids, sterculic and malvalic, occur
naturally in a major food lipid, cottonseed oil, and have been implicated
in several physiological disorders. Rainbow trout in this
study were fed semipurified diets containing 200 or 300 ppm methyl
sterculate, and the effects on hepatic lipid and glycogen levels,
