Cyrus the Younger : Death in Vain?
Cyrus the Younger's quest for the crown of the Persian Empire, held by his brother, Artaxerxes II, culminated in the Battle of Cunaxa in 401 BC. The battle ended with his own death. This study speculates whether Cyrus the ...
Do Football Players Have a Greater Risk of Developing a Hip Impingement?
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is caused when the neck of the femur, due to limited internal rotation, biomechanically contacts the pelvis in an atypical manner. The purpose of this study was to investigate if football ...
Cost-Tiered GPS Unit Three-Dimensional Capability Comparisons and Testing
Handheld Global Positioning System (GPS) units are thought to be less accurate than professional grade GPS units, but little research has been done to determine the three-dimensional accuracy of equipment grade in terms ...
Hidden Discrimination : Edwin J. Wilber and Stereotypes of Native American Soldiers
Racial assumptions have been made regarding Native American soldiers for hundreds of years. This study delves into the military career of one man, Edwin J. Wilber, a Native American soldier during the Korean War. It argues ...
Supramolecular Main-Chain Liquid Crystalline Polymers and Networks with Composite Hydrogen Bonding : a Study of Flexible Bis-Acids and a Mixture of Flexible Mesogenic Bispyridyls and Flexible Polypridyls
This study looked at flexible bis-acids and a mixture of flexible mesogenic bispyridls and flexible polypyridyls in relation to supramolecular main-chain liquid crystalline polymers and networks with competitive hydrogen bonding.
Histology of Alarm Substance Cells in Relation to Parasite Load and Fish Size for Hornyhead Chub (Nocomis biguttatus)
It is generally thought that alarm substance cells (ASC) found in fish epidermis evolved as a means of reducing predation risk via the release of a chemical substance these cells hold. This study focused on the Hornyhead ...
Environmental and Genetic Rhythm Governing the Production of Methanobactin
Methanobactin is a peptide-derived, copper-binding molecule that is produced by methanotrophic bacteria. Methanobactins scavenge and reduce copper (II) ions to provide copper as an enzymatic co-factor for particulate methane ...
Genetic Screen Identifying Mutations Which Suppress the Phenotype of a Red Light Hypersensitive Mutant
A plant's ability to assess light quantity and quality is fundamental to maintaining healthy growth. One way that plants sense changing light conditions is via the perception of red (R~660 nm) and far red (FR~730 nm) ...
Synthesis and Characterization of "Smart" Biaryl Sultines
Biphenly-containing compounds, applicable to many nanoscience applications, such as sensors and molecular machines, can be imagined to exist in two states: non-planar or planar. Most biphenyl containing compounds have been ...
Analyzing Image Files for Modification
In this project a program was designed that detects intentional modifications in photographs.
