Explaining Pharmacists' Intentions to use Personal Digital Assistants as Clinical Resources During Patient Care Interventions 

Fox, Brent (2005-05-15)
This research project explored the ability of a modified Technology Acceptance Model 2 (TAM2) to explain pharmacists’ intentions to use personal digital assistants (PDAs) to document interventions. The Technology Acceptance ...

Multivariate Analyses of Disease Outcomes of Chlamydial Infections in Cattle and Mice 

Kim, Tea (2005-05-15)
In humans, Chlamydia pneumoniae infection is implicated in 10 ~ 15% of bronchitis and community-acquired pneumonia, and 50 ~ 70% of adults have antibodies to Chlamydia pneumoniae. In livestock animals, ubiquitous C. abortus ...

Hellfire, home, and harm: An investigation of the interaction between religiosity, family processes, and adolescent deviant behavior 

Pickering, Lloyd (2005-05-15)
There is an abundant literature dealing with the relationship between religiosity and deviant behavior in adolescence (Baier & Wright, 2001; Johnson, de Li, Larson, & McCullough, 2000; Johnson, Jang, Larson, & de Li, 2001). ...

Hierarchical Fault Collapsing for Logic Circuits 

Sandireddy, Raja-Kiran-Kumar (2005-05-15)
The process of grouping stuck-at faults into equivalence or dominance classes and then selecting one representative for each class is known as fault collapsing. There have been several techniques to collapse the faults ...

Transient Population Dynamics and Population Momentum in Vertebrates 

Koons, David (2005-05-15)
Maintenance of sustainable wildlife populations is one of the primary purposes of wildlife management. Thus, it is important to monitor and manage population growth and size over time. Population structure (i.e., age, ...

Interaction of Wax, Fungicide and Ethylene Treatments on Storage and Shelf-Life of Satsuma Mandarins 

Campbell, Julie (2005-05-15)
Satsuma mandarins (Citrus unshiu Marc.) were once the center of an important industry along the Gulf Coast of the United States. Several freezes in the early 1900’s essentially wiped out the industry. In recent years ...

Dynamics and Synthesis of Kinematic Chains with Impact and Clearance 

Stoenescu, Eleonor (2005-05-15)
The dynamics and synthesis of open and closed kinematic chains with frictional impact and joint clearance is studied. The impact between rigid bodies with friction is investigated. A new model of impact with friction ...

Fractional Domination, Fractional Packings, and Fractional Isomorphisms of Graphs 

Rubalcaba, Robert (2005-05-15)
The fractional analogues of domination and packing in a graph form an interesting pair of dual linear programs, in that the feasible vectors for both LPs have interpretations as functions from the vertices of the graph to ...

Built-In Self Test for Regular Structure Embedded Cores in System-on-Chip 

Garimella, Srinivas (2005-05-15)
Miniaturization and integration of different cores onto a single chip are increasing the complexity of VLSI chips. To ensure that these chips operate as desired, they have to be tested at various phases of their development. ...

Professional Development as a Means to Increasing Teachers’ Self-Efficacy for Technology Integration 

Gaither, Carol (2005-05-15)
The purpose of this study was to explore the importance of the integration of technology into educational classrooms and why teachers are reluctant to embrace this integration. Further, this study systemically evaluated ...

An Investigation of Student Conjectures in Static and Dynamic Geometry Environments 

Gillis, John (2005-05-15)
This study was designed to investigate the mathematical conjectures formed by high school geometry students when given identical geometric figures in two different types of geometric environments. Student conjectures ...

Feathers at a fine scale 

Shawkey, Matthew (2005-08-15)
In 1668, Antoine von Leeuwenhoek improved the crude microscopes that were being produced in Europe to better study small biological objects (Madigan et al. 1997). Although von Leeuwenhoek 's microscope revolutionized ...

Bridge Pile Bent P-Delta Curves in Transverse Direction Using FB-Pier and GTSTRUDL Pushover Analysis Procedures 

Hughes, Douglas (2005-08-15)
Extreme flood events may create large transverse water loads that cause piles of a bent to bend about their weak axes in addition to causing scour. A comparison of the nonlinear pushover analysis procedures and resulting ...

Bioremediation of Pentachlorophenol and Bleach Plant Effluent by Trametes versicolor and its Extracellular Fluid, Focused on Intermediates and Products Formed and the Role of Protein Binding of Chlorinated Compounds in a Two-stage Reactor System 

Bethune, Kristie (2005-08-15)
Bioremediation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) from aqueous solutions can provide valuable methods to remove other toxins from aqueous solutions, those that are more or less persistent or toxic than PCP. Understanding the ...

Exploring sinefungin analogs as potential antiviral agents 

Shulyak, Tetyana (2005-08-15)
Sinefungin bears a strong structural resemblance to S-adenosylmethionine and S-adenosylhomocysteine and, therefore is one of the most potent inhibitors of viral mRNA methyl transferase. Besides antiviral activity, sinefungin ...

Perceptions of the Size, Shape and Attractiveness of Female Body Scans Relative to Body Mass Index 

Farinah, Shiara (2005-08-15)
The purpose of this study was to investigate male and female college students’ perceptions of female body size using 3-D body scan images. A convenience sample of 146 men and 155 women viewed 10 women’s scanned images ...
