This study evaluates the effect of an Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) prevention program on the incidence of gonorrhea among the enlisted men in the 105th Battalion of the Honduran Army. The education program was initiated as a result of the high incidence of AIDS in Honduras (more than half...
Hop derived bitter compounds, including alpha-acids, reduced and non-reduced iso-alpha-acids, were evaluated for their contribution to peak bitter intensity in lager beer. Alpha-acids are the precursors to the major bittering components in beer (iso-alpha-acids). Typically, alpha-acids do not survive the brewing process, but if a product is dry-hopped, they may...
This thesis presents basic studies, including structural, optical and transport measurements, on novel chalcogenide powders and single crystals. BiCuOSe crystals have been synthesized for the first time. The crystal structure of BiCuOSe has been refined and the optical band gap has been measured to be 0.83eV. Crystal structure refinements of...
The most frequent cause of insufficient acid production during
fermentation of dairy products is bacteriophage infection of lactic
starter cultures. Previously, efforts to minimize this problem have
dealt primarily with the host range relationships of the viruses and
susceptibility patterns of the lactic streptococci. This study was
undertaken to characterize...
The study's goal was to develop and initially validate the Food
Fantasies Questionnaire, a self-report therapeutic and research
instrument which assesses the occurrence and content of highly
irrational food cognitions (fantasies) common to eating disorders in
relation to seven theoretically derived factors characterisic of the
disorders: fear, anxiety, revulsion, pleasure,...
The term "interaction" in evolutionary biology and ecology
describes the relationships among variables in two classes of causal
models. In the first, "interaction" refers to the influence of a
single putatively causal variable on a variable of interest. In the
second class of models, the term applies when a third...
