Food Interaction Study
This dataset comes from a study of 8 healthy males randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design, in which they either fasted and then ate, or ate and then fasted. They were given one dose of a drug, blood samples were collected and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the absorption of the drug. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.

Hysteria Over Pfiesteria
Students will be guided through an investigation of the Pfiesteria outbreaks through a variety of approaches employing writing, math, drawing, summarizing and deductive skills. As students assimilate details of the Pfiesteria problem, they will begin to develop a multifaceted understanding of the issue and its potential links to nonpoint source pollution. In Exercise II, they study the spatial and temporal distribution of Pfiesteria outbreaks in an effort to explore reasons for the connection be

Electrostatics
Students use a Although atoms contain both negatively and positively charged particles, they do so in equal amounts and carry no net charge. This balance can be temporarily disrupted by rubbing one material against another. One device, known as a Van de Graaff generator, uses a fast moving rubber belt to charge a metallic dome to nearly 200,000 Volts. This activity uses a Van de Graaff generator to study the behavior of electrical charges.

Lecsture on â€˜Sir J.G.Frazer: Science and Sensibilityâ€™
The Frazer Lecture on the legacy of J.G.Frazer, which Godfrey Lienhardt suggests is greater in the field of literature (through its influence on people like T.S.Elliot in the â€˜Waste Landâ€™ than on the science of anthropology.,The Frazer Lecture was given in Cambridge by Godfrey Lienhardt on 5th March 1992, well after he had retired. It was chaired by Dr. Alan Macfarlane and was filmed by Humphrey Hinton, using a video 8 camera. The lecture lasts about 45 minutes.

Native American Assimilation
Beginning in the 1700s, the Spaniards built the California Missions to make contact with Native Americans in the hope of converting them to Christianity. One painting by a Russian artist depicts a group of Native Americans dancing in front of Mission Dolores in San Francisco; a later photograph shows a group of nuns with westernized native children in front of the Pala Mission in Southern California. As European Americans continued to migrate West throughout the 1800s, they came into conflict wi

Reflections on using film in fieldwork
These reflections on filming among the Gurungs were made in the autumn of 2000 A.D. Alan Macfarlane talked into the camera in order to capture some of the types of film he made, the changing technologies, and some tips on how to film in the field. This was filmed on 3-chip digital video. The clips should be viewed over broadband.,The history of my early filming and photography on an 8mm film camera, 1968-1987 Filming on video from 1988; the advantages What should one film?

Medicine Games: Incredible Megacell Game
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! The compartments of the cell, the organelles, are so small that it was impossible to study their structure until the electron microscope became available in 1938. Albert Claude, Christian de Duve and George E. Palade were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1974 for developing methods making it possible to take a closer look at the organelles and for discovering some of them.

Alternative small scale meteorology input to a chemical transport model
In order to respond to the increasing demand for better understanding of the environment, air quality studies at different scales are required. The Community Multi-scale Air Quality Model (CMAQ) chemical transport model is designed to handle all major scales of interest. However, the meteorology input to the model has to represent adequately the atmospheric conditions at these scales. So far, the meteorological input to CMAQ has been supplied by the Fifth-Generation Pennsylvania State University

Joint source-channel decoding for robust transmission of video
Motivated by the need for robust transmission of video, an approach to joint-source channel decoding is presented. While this work is focused on transmission of video, the results are applicable to most forms of multimedia. A general overview of the proposed video coding system is given and its individual components are introduced. Since correct reception of synchronization patterns is essential for successful decoding of compressed bitstreams, detection of a periodically embedded synchronizatio

Model testing of passive site stabilization
Passive site stabilization is a new technology proposed for use in mitigation of liquefaction risk at developed sites. Liquefaction is the rapid loss of strength caused by earthquakes, typically found in saturated sands or loose fills, which causes the formation to flow like later. Liquefaction has been known to be a very costly occurrence claiming many lives, damaging structures and businesses, and costing billions of dollars in repairs; however, sites can be remediated to prevent liquefaction.

Synthesis and characterization of the properties of Ti3SiC2/SiC and Ti3SiC2/TiC composites
In 1996, the ternary compound titanium silicon carbide (Ti3SiC2) was for the first timesynthesized as a single-phase, fully dense compound. Its characterization revealed aunique combination of properties. For its high fracture toughness, low hardness toelastic modulus ratio and excellent damage tolerance, it was dubbed a soft ceramic. Italso displayed good thermal shock and oxidation resistance. In this work, thereinforcement of this material with silicon carbide and titanium carbide particles w

Type 1 diabetic model (A)
Diabetes mellitus is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by the uncoupling of bloodglucose levels and insulin secretion, causing abnormal glycemic excursions. Type 1diabetes is characterized by a complete insulin deficiency. Treatment consists ofattempting to match exogenous insulin delivery to the metabolic needs of the patientduring meals, exercise, and sleep. The objective is to minimize the frequency and severityof glycemic excursions and, more importantly, avoid hypoglycemic episodes.

Implications of resource management in La Parguera, Puerto Rico (The)
A recent rezoning of La Parguera, southwest Puerto Rico, as a tourist zone has resulted in an imbalance between development and appropriate resource management. Development associated with tourism is destroying the sub-tropical dry forest and adding pressure on the marine resources through increased boat traffic and marine structures. Declining water quality and benthic community health are two of the impacts seen in La Parguera associated with these land use changes. This study is three-fold. F
