Reassessment of intra- and extra-ovarian expression of growth differentiation factor-9
Mammalian ovarian organogenesis is characterized temporally by oogonial mitosis, oogonial apoptosis, rescue of germ cells via interaction with somatic cells to form primordial follicles, and entrance into meiosis. Recent studies suggest that germ cell’s activity participate in this process via the production of local regulatory factors. Growth differentiation factor-9 (GDF-9), a novel transforming growth factor-family member, is expressed in ovaries of various species as a crucial factor in ov
KS2 Numeracy SATs revision 2
The levels test basic skills - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division (without a calculator!) - along with using brackets and questions where a missing number needs to be found. One level tests tables, and finally there are some questions where a calculator may be used, against the clock. Each question uses an on-screen keypad for entering the answers. The order of questions is randomised. Progress is tracked and numerous awards given for achievement at each level.
"What is it?" Exploring the roles of women throughout Raymond Carver’s short fiction
A majority of critics examine Raymond Carver’s fiction in terms of minimalism, but in this thesis, I highlight the themes in Carver’s work rather than emphasize the format. Many women in Carver’s work contrast the futility of their male counterparts by showing a determination to move on with their lives. By looking at each of Carver’s major collections of short stories, one may find a progression in the way women react to the hopeless situations in their lives. Carver’s early stories,
The end and the beginning:a model for analyzing visual/verbal news broadcasts of protest coverage
This project brings together two areas of prior research: framing and visual rhetoric. Framing as it relates to news coverage of protests constitutes the core theoretical foundation. In using prior research by McLeod, Gitlin, and Lee, we see how news coverage can potentially bias an audience against protestors. However, this research focuses extensively on newspapers or transcripts of televised news. Consequently, by combining visual theories like semiotics, gestalt, and film theory into a visua
Will you be my friend? An analysis of friendster.com
Friendster.com was launched in California in 2002 with 20 users. Today, it has more than 27 million members and it is especially popular among Southeast Asian women. It differs from other online dating sites in that users must be approved before they can become part of a user’s personal network. This study explores what may have made the site so attractive, as well as how its users represent themselves in their personal profiles. Drawing on social constructionist and feminist theories, this th
The first year impact of a professional learning community on low achieving 7th and 8th grade studen
The purpose of this study was to measure the impact on low achieving learners within the first year implementation of a professional learning community in a large suburban middle school located in the Midwest. Interventions through collaborative efforts were devised for low achieving learners and implemented. Grade trends for students earning below average and failing grades in all subject areas in the 7th and 8th grade were examined from each quarter of the previous four years and compared to g
Basic computer literacy training to increase comfort levels with computers and improve behaviors of
This study researched the effect of a basic computer course on the comfort level with computers and Internet on 17 Spanish-speaking, non-computer literate adults. It also identified any increase of the participants’ integration of computers and Internet into employment related activities. Five male and twelve female Hispanic adults completed a four-day basic computer literacy training course. Data collected through pre and post content exams; pre, post, and follow-up comfort and use surveys, a
