Theoretical thesis.

Bibliography: pages 318-376.

Introduction  – Chapter One. Caste in the Gurkha regiment : a colonial historiography  – Chapter Two. Unbroken chains: Gurkha migration… (more)

Subjects/Keywords: Overseas caste remains under-researched. Many scholars including Max Weber and Luis Dumont have identified the caste system as a fundamental part of life among Hindus, Sikhs and others within South Asia. Now millions of the same people live abroad. Despite this, however, there is little knowledge of caste among South Asian migrants and their descendants, particularly in the West. The purpose of this thesis is to explore how and why Nepalese Gurkha immigrants – retired soldiers who migrated to Britain en masse following the change of Gurkha immigration policies in 2004 and 2009 – have actively reproduced caste from the outset; Gurkha soldiers  – Great Britain; Nepalese  – Great Britain; Immigrants  – Great Britain; Caste  – Nepal; Immigrants  – Cultural assimilation  – Great Britain; Nepalese diaspora; Gurkha migration; Britain; overseas caste; Dalit diaspora; ethnic minorities; military migrants

Degree: 2012, Tartu University

Subjects/Keywords: Cancer is a complex disease where cells proliferate uncontrollably and spread into different parts of the body. Unlimited division of cancer cells occurs due to activation of proteins that promote cell growth, i.e. oncoproteins, and simultaneous inactivation of proteins that regulate cell death, i.e. tumorsuppressors. Although the number of ascertained cancer-associated proteins continues to grow rapidly, the transformation of a normal cell into a tumor cell depends on changes in several key signaling pathways that regulate cell proliferation and death. Identification of tumor-associated proteins and studying their function might be applied to the elaboration of novel therapeutic strategies. In this work the functions of a potential oncoprotein leukosialin (CD43) were studied in human cancer cells. CD43 has long been regarded as a molecule present exclusively on the surface of blood cells. However, there is a growing body of evidence suggesting that CD43 might play a role in tumor development. Several studies demonstrate high level of CD43 in human solid tumor cells, including colorectal tumors, but it was not detectable in normal colon cells. Moreover, CD43 has been shown to interact with proteins that influence cell survival or proliferation. The results of the present research imply that CD43 in cooperation with the well known oncoprotein β-catenin facilitates cell growth and survival. It is believed that disorders in the functioning of β-catenin frequently lead to the formation of various types of cancer, especially colorectal cancers, since deregulated β-catenin triggers production of proteins that stimulate cell division. In cells with impaired tumorsuppressors, the increased amount of CD43, via β-catenin signaling, might cause uncontrollable proliferation of cells and initiate a tumor. However, excessive growth signals emanating from CD43 and β-catenin actuate the process of cell death, which is the main protective mechanism against tumors. Furthermore, the tumorsuppressors, in turn, decrease the level of CD43 protein. In summary, this work presents new aspects on the ability of CD43 to enhance cell growth and thereby promote tumor formation. Also, a previously undescribed negative feedback loop is proposed between CD43 and tumorsuppressors that might be important in preventing the disease.; tumor cells growth; tumor markers; molecular aspects; proteins; kasvajarakkude kasv; valgud; kasvaja markerid; molekulaaraspektid

Subjects/Keywords: Alat za livenje pod pritiskom, legura aluminijuma, lepljenje livene legure, korozija, habanje, dupleks tretman, topografija površine; Corrosion resistance and soldering tendency of different materials in moltenAl–Si–Cu alloy were studied. Hot-working tool steel, plasma nitrided steel andduplex layers with CrN, TiAlN, TiAlSiN and CrAlN top coatings, which wereproduced to various degree of surface roughness, were covered by the study.An ejection test was employed for investigation of the concerned phenomena.The ejection test was improved in order to increase its accuracy and thereliability of process simulation. Samples were examined in both short andextended periods of contact (5 and 20 min) with liquid casting. Castingsolidification was extended in order to intensify the corrosion effects. Contraryto common findings, it was found that the ejection force of the investigatedmaterials does not depend on their chemical composition. For the coatedsamples, a pronounced dependence of the ejection force on the surfaceroughness was found. The ejection force increases with decrease in surfaceroughness. All investigated coatings are prone to mechanical soldering by Al–Si–Cu alloy. Still, their corrosion resistance substantially exceeds the corrosionresistance of steel and plasma nitrided layer. Longer exposure of coatedsamples to cast alloy induced lower ejection forces, which is a consequenceof coatings oxidation. It was found that the investigated coatings are inert toliquid aluminium. However, the underlying material undergoes oxidation andcorrosion through coating growth defects. The findings concerning the wearmechanisms of protective layers support further development of duplex layersintended for die casting tools protection.

Subjects/Keywords: In order to ensure long-term adoption and use of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technologies; they must be designed to support children to participate within everyday activities and routines that are prioritized by families. Nine parents of children with cerebral palsy who used AAC technologies participated in semi-structured interviews to provide their perspectives of how AAC technologies were integrated into the functional contexts of everyday life. Five major themes emerged from the discussions: (a) integrating AAC into life; (b) AAC technologies; (c) child needs and skills; (d) parent responsibilities and priorities; and (e) AAC process and decision-making. Children were able to use AAC technologies within a variety of everyday contexts with various partners; however; challenges included access to AAC within physical and outdoor activities and partners who lacked knowledge regarding operational competencies and effective interaction strategies. In order to integrate AAC technologies into life; parents prioritized technology features including ease of programming; improved physical design (e.g.; lighter; wearable; easy to mount; durable); features to enhance efficiency and ease of access (e.g.; brain-computer interface; sentence prediction); and availably of multiple functions and features (e.g.; facial recognition software; augmented reality; projection capabilities; capability to control wheelchair). AAC manufacturers and mainstream technology developers should work to ensure that technologies are responsive to the supports; limitations; and ideal features identified by parents. Future research should seek input from a larger group of stakeholders and use longitudinal methods to examine perceptions of AAC technologies over time. Keywords: technology design; augmentative and alternative communication; parents; cerebral palsy; service delivery; technology design; family

Subjects/Keywords: The following question can be raised: Are parliaments still the true bearers of the legislative power; or paraphrasing Hobbes: it is assumed who the legislator is; but is it also known? The subject of this thesis are the limits that parliaments are facing today while exercising their normative roles. These limitations are both internal and external; and may be traditional or of new origin. Today efficiency and speed are key expectations; it seems that parliaments as legislators are losing their breath and are facing many limitations in their role that has for centuries been their ”basic one”: their legislative role. The fact that the focus of power is increasingly shifting towards the executive branch of power even in countries with parliamentary systems of governance is not a novelty anymore. Parliaments; however; do not only face the limits placed before them by the governments throughout the legislative process. The key role of political parties; the relativization of the classical concept of sovereignty; and other limiting factors of the legislative role of parliaments; which need further examination; may lead to the modification of their functions in modern states. The aim of the dissertation is to through thoroughly selected scientific sources and relying on a decade-long experience as Member of the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia precisely determine and rationally examine and draft an academic position about the role of parliaments today with regard to the limitations in their legislative function. We started off from the hypothesis that the legislative function of parliaments is set by the constitution; and narrowed by the ever increasing role of the governments in the legislative process; by political parties and other participants in the legislative procedure; as well as by the relativization of national sovereignty in the framework of international integration and also by the impact of global economic flows.

Subjects/Keywords: Training a Support Vector Machine (SVM) requires the solution of a very large quadratic programming (QP) optimization problem. Sequential Minimal Optimization (SMO) is a decomposition-based algorithm which breaks this large QP problem into a series of smallest possible QP problems. However; it still costs O(n2) computation time. In our SVM implementation; we can do training with huge data sets in a distributed manner (by breaking the dataset into chunks; then using Message Passing Interface (MPI) to distribute each chunk to a different machine and processing SVM training within each chunk). In addition; we moved the kernel calculation part in SVM classification to a graphics processing unit (GPU) which has zero scheduling overhead to create concurrent threads. In this thesis; we will take advantage of this GPU architecture to improve the classification performance of SVM.

Subjects/Keywords: Fusarium verticillioides causes an important seed disease on maize and produces fumonisin B1 (FB1); a mycotoxin that is detrimental to human and animal health. Previous studies discovered that expression of FST1 is required for FB1 production and wild-type level of virulence on maize seeds. FST1 encodes a putative protein with 12 transmembrane domains with sequence similarity to hexose transporters. However; those studies have failed to prove its ability to transport glucose; fructose or mannose. I identified another three phenotypes associated with the lack of a functional FST1; which includes reduced hydrophobicity of hyphae; reduced macroconidia production; and increased sensitivity to hydrogen peroxide. My research compared the transcriptome of the wild type and strain Δfst1 when grown on autoclaved maize kernels. The 17 % of transcriptome (2677 genes) were differentially expressed. Examination of these genes indicated that the disruption of FST1 function affected genes involved in secondary metabolism; cell structure; conidiogenesis; virulence; and resistance to reactive oxygen species. Additionally; I used a Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain (Δitr1) lacking a functional inositol transporter gene (ITR1) to study the function of FST1. This yeast mutant grows poorly in myo-inositol medium and is not inhibited by FB1. I found that expression of FST1 in strain Δitr1 restored growth on myo-inositol medium and sensitivity to FB1 to levels observed in the wild-type yeast strain. The results indicate that FST1 can function as an inositol transporter and suggests it can transport FB1 into fungal cells. Finally; the functional importance of amino acids in FST1 was examined by creating targeted mutations in the central loop and C-terminus regions of the protein. Expression of these engineered FST1 genes in stain Δitr1 of S. cerevisiae and strain Δfst1 of F. verticillioides indicated that both the central loop and C-terminus are critical for FST1 functionality. Overall this research has established the first characterized inositol transporter in filamentous fungi and has advanced our knowledge about the global regulatory functions of FST1.; Plant Pathology

Subjects/Keywords: As core processing technologies in energy-intensive industries improve leaps and bounds; existing facilities gradually fall behind in terms of efficiency and productivity. Ultimately; harsh market competition and environmental legislation will force these traditional facilities to stop operations and decommission. Process improvement and retrofit projects are critical in maintaining the operational performance of these traditional facilities. Current approaches for process improvement are mainly Process Integration; Process Optimization and Process Intensification. From a high-level context; analysis from these fields consists of mathematical optimization; accumulated experience; and operational heuristics. These approaches serve good as a basis for process improvement. However; their performance can be further improved with up-to-date computational intelligence. Therefore; the purpose of this work is to apply advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques into process improvement projects for energy-intensive industrial systems. The approach taken by this work is a multi-directional approach which tackles this problem from simulation to industrial systems with the following contributions: (i) Application of machine learning technique; which includes one-shot learning and neuro-evolution for data-driven single unit modelling and optimization. (ii) Application of dimension reduction (e.g. principle component analysis; deep autoencoder) for multiple-unit multiple-objective process optimization. (iii) Proposition of novel bottleneck tree analysis (BOTA) tool for the purpose of process capacity debottlenecking. An extended BOTA was also proposed to incorporate multi-dimensional problems via data-driven approach. (iv) Demonstrated effectiveness of Monte-Carlo simulations; neural network and decision trees for decision-making when integrating new process technology in existing processes. (v) Benchmarked Hierarchical Temporal Memory (HTM) and a dual-mode optimization with multiple predictive tools for real-time operational management.

Subjects/Keywords: Biology; Life Sciences; Many important questions in the field of prokaryotic biology cannot be answered due to the low availability of sequenced and finished genomes. Recent improvements in technology and decreases in price have made the ambition of de novo bacterial genomic sequencing a reality for a wide range of researchers. However; with the advancement of sequencing technology comes the need for an evaluation to determine the most reliable bioinformatics methods in generating a complete and accurate assembly. Biases inherent in the sequencing technology and GC-rich genomes complicate genome assemblies. Here; we sequenced bacterial strains from the GC-rich Caulobacter genus and the closely related Brevundimonas genus. We found that the Pacific Biosciences RS II sequencing systems was the best sequencer to use in conjunction with the HGAP2 assembler. Using our newly acquired sequences; we found that the genus Caulobacter exhibits extensive genome rearrangements giving the appearance of “Genome Scrambling”. We found that these extensive rearrangements had no correlation to genome relatedness within the genus and that they did not disrupt the conservation of NA1000 essential genes between the species. We also found that using the 16S rRNA region to group these bacteria were as accurate as using entire conserved operons spanning thousands of base pairs.

Subjects/Keywords: ENGLISH ABSTRACT Title: The perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants on care-related prevention concerning people with dementia: a mixed methods approach. Background: Because of the growing number of people with dementia; care-related prevention activities done by nurses and certified nursing assistants will become increasingly important to prevent complications and maintain an acceptable quality of life. Currently it’s unknown what the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention in dementia care are. Aim: To gain insight into the perceptions of nurses and certified nursing assistants towards care-related prevention so care-related prevention for people with dementia can be further improved in the future. Research question: How do nurses and certified nursing assistants working in home care; residential or nursing homes perceive care-related prevention concerning people with dementia? Method: A mixed methods approach with survey research and individual semi-structured interviews. First; secondary analyses were done on existing survey data collected in 2011 on a sample of 206 nurses and certified nursing assistants. Second; in March-May 2014 12 individual semi-structured interviews were conducted to embellish the quantitative results. Results: From this study three concepts related to the perceptions of nurses and CNAs towards care-related prevention activities emerged: attitude; knowledge and skills and the future. Nurses and certified nursing assistants think care-related prevention is a task of their profession. They experience insufficient knowledge and skills and they like to devote more time to care-related prevention in the future. Conclusion: Nurses and certified nursing assistants perceive care-related prevention to be part of their profession. They however express the need for more education on care-related prevention; preferably in a classroom setting. In the future; nurses and certified nursing assistants like to devote more time to care-related prevention and e-health can support this. Recommendations: Additional training of nurses and certified nursing assistants focused on their different needs and use of e-health.

Subjects/Keywords: otimização; estruturas sanduíche; recomento; painel solar; panels; otimização; sabdwich structures; simulation annealing; solar panel; ENGENHARIA E TECNOLOGIA ESPACIAL; A redução da massa de estruturas espaciais é importante; pois possibilita o aumento da carga útil e/ou vida útil dos veículos espaciais. Como conseqüência disso; a utilização dos painéis sanduíche devido a sua configuração vem crescendo nos últimos anos; pois estes painéis possuem uma relação rigidez/peso elevada. O problema abordado neste trabalho é a minimização da massa das faces de um painel sanduíche. As faces desses painéis são constituídas por uma tela de fibra de material composto. A massa dessas faces é reduzida através da definição de uma distribuição não uniforme de material; considerando a primeira freqüência natural como restrição. Este problema foi anteriormente resolvido utilizando-se métodos determinísticos de otimização. Entretanto; como os problemas de otimização estrutural possuem muitos mínimos locais; os métodos determinísticos têm dificuldade em encontrar os projetos ótimos globais. Para contornar este problema; neste trabalho foi utilizado um algoritmo estocástico; baseado no método do Recozimento Simulado (RS); que possui mecanismos de busca direcionada e aleatória; capazes de atingir o mínimo global. O objetivo deste trabalho é estudar a viabilidade da utilização do RS em problemas de otimização estrutural. Os projetos são gerados aleatoriamente e o custo das mudanças (variação da função objetivo)é calculado. Os resultados obtidos são comparados com outros calculados usando um método de otimização determinístico .ABSTRACT:The mass reduction of space structures is of great importance; since it allows the payload and/or space vehicles lifetime increase. As a consequence; the use of sandwich panels has been growing in the last years; since these panels have a high stiffness/weight ratio. The problem presented in this work is about mass minimization of sandwich panels facesheets. The panel facesheets are composed of a net of composite material fiber strips. Defining a nonuniform material distribution; taking into account a lower boundary for the first natural frequency as constraint reduces the mass of these facesheets. This problem was previously solved by using deterministic methods of optimization. However; as the structural optimization problems have many local minima; the deterministic methods present difficulty to find the global optimum design. To outline this problem; a stochastic algorithm has been used in this work; based on the Simulated Annealing method (SA); which allows directional and random search and it is able to reach the global minimum. The goal of this work is to study the behavior of the SA algorithm when it s used to solve structural optimization problems. The designs are generated randomly and the change costs (variation of the objective function)is evaluated. The outputs obtained with this method are compared with results from some deterministic optimization methods; painéis

15. Tay, Noel Nuo Wi. Human-centric Semantic Reasoning and Optimization for Smart Home : スマートホームのための人間中心セマンティック推論と最適化.

Degree: 博士(工学), 2017, Tokyo Metropolitan University / 首都大学東京

首都大学東京, 2017-03-25, 博士(工学)

Subjects/Keywords: Smart home consists of various kinds of Internet of Tings (IoT) devices connected to the private house that cooperatively provide inhabitants (users) with proactive services related to comfort; security and safety. Examples of services include 1) manipulation of lighting and temperature based on time and context; 2) reminder service of user’s schedules by using the nearest output device; and 3) device organization to realize surveillance system. However; current smart homes are developed mostly from the viewpoint of technical capabilities; where users have to decide how the connected devices are going to serve them. They may have to setup the devices based on the available functionalities and specifications of the devices; and also have to alter their living styles according to the role of each device. Besides; most devices can only provide simple services independently. Œus; cooperation among the devices is important. On the other hand; human-centric approach; which centered on humans’ need to enhance their living experience; is an important technological paradigm where services are provided anywhere and anytime based on situation. Smart home abiding this approach should cooperatively maximize fulfillment of quality of life (QOL) for individual users subject to personal constraints. In this respect; the devices are bound to enable communication of information; and their operations are coordinated to deliver services cooperatively via a sequence of device actions called a plan. Due to personalization and automation; a number of problems have to be solved. First; a means of automatic binding between loosely coupled devices depending on services delivered have to be devised; as manual setup is impractical. Secondly; coordination of devices needs to generate complex plans; without requiring manual specification of sub-plans. Besides; issue of over-constrained goals during service provisions that arises from flawed or contradicting specification from multiple users should be considered. Apart from that; low training data in general environment setting for individual identification should be addressed. The aim of this research is to establish an integrated system for the human-centric smart home (HcSH) that provides personalized service through loosely coupled devices automatically. This research modularizes the overall system into three modules; which are human identification (HIM); automated planner (APM); and semantic reasoner (SRM). HIM helps select the appropriate QOL; SRM binds the devices by associating them with planning components; which are then used by APM to generate plans for device coordination to maximize QOL fulfillment. Chapter 1 gives the introduction and design motivation. Chapter 2 presents the related works and literature reviews; as well as justifications relevant to this thesis. Chapter 3 deals with HIM; which is realized via face identification. For face identification; problems faced are heavy computational load and insufficient learning data. The solution is to use transfer learning to handle data issue while being able to build generalized face model. For face model refinement; active learning is implemented. Experimental results show the method is competitive in terms of accuracy and computational cost compared to current state of the art. Chapter 4 presents APM; where planning via solving Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP) is laid out. CSP in planning is declarative without requiring prior specification of sub-plans; and can handle variables of larger domains. Due to the high possibility of having over-constrained QOL as in practical cases; CSP planner cannot fulfill all of them. An example is a contradicting TV channel request from 2 persons. Optimization through weighted CSP is therefore used to maximize QOL fulfillment. Experiments on weighted CSP shows that the method is capable of performing optimization while generating complex plans. Chapter 5 is on SRM; where knowledge representation is constructed by Web Ontology Language (OWL) description logic. It models knowledge on home and building layout and device functionalities. OWL is used because it is decidable and that it is endorsed by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We deal with case studies based on further inference on building state as an important example to discuss the applicability of the proposed method; and demonstrate the use of building ontology. This is followed by automated device binding and the method to generate basic planning components of rules in automated planning. Finally; an extension to robot complex planning is provided to demonstrate how it can be easily extended. Chapter 6 demonstrates the applicability of the HcSH; which integrates all three modules through its implementation in a prototype smart home with 5 rooms; which houses 2 persons. Various tests are performed to show the generated plans are near optimal without redundancy. Œe system is also shown to be scalable given increasing amount of devices. Case studies show that the system can perform well even under short time threshold. Finally; chapter 7 summarizes the thesis. Future vision of the work is also laid out; which is to implement it as a community-centric system.

Treatment for dual diagnosis is best when the treatment of each disorder is integrated into one program. There are various forms of dual diagnosis treatment that were explored. Existing dual diagnosis treatment research will be presented. The purpose of the study is to evaluate an existing dual diagnosis and severe mental illness program that provides integrated mental health and substance abuse treatment. The research design is a pre-experimental one group pretest posttest design (Campbell & Stanley, 1963). Fifty-two people were studied to determine the program effectiveness. The effectiveness of the program was determined by analyzing the data collected on the consumers’ pretest and posttest measures. The measures used in the research were the BASIS-32, MAI, BHS, BDI, and CAR. Subjects in the study had a mean age of 30. There were 18 females and 34 males. Of the participants, 11.3% had schizophrenia, 13.2% had schizoaffective disorder, 7.5% had bipolar, 11.3% had depression, 5.7% had substance abuse, 43.4% had a dual diagnosis with mental illness and substance abuse, and 5.7% had schizotypal personality disorder. The average length of stay for the consumers was 4 months of treatment. All clients were prescribed medications at discharge with the exception of one client. The results of the study indicate that the BASIS-32 showed statistically significant improvement in results for subjects from pretest to posttest. All other inventories yielded changes that were not statistically significant. Treating dually diagnosed clients in an integrated treatment center is imperative to decrease duplication of services, mixed messages, and exacerbation of problems. In this study, the dual diagnosis program was seen to have some efficacy in treatment. Limitations of the study include a low N, which affects the power of the study to determine statistically significant changes in client inventory scores from pretest to posttest. Other limitations include no comparison group nor any control group.

In process-based ecological restoration, considerations of scale are related to ecosystem spatial characteristics and potential connectivity of restored patches. In cities, with unbuilt ground in very small fragments, the idea of a whole ecological landscape integrated with dense human population encourages consideration of larger scale rehabilitation. A process of ecological rehabilitation at a neighborhood scale is suggested, toward “success” in ecological and social terms, by considering case study neighborhoods in central city Milwaukee, their characteristics relevant to landscape rehabilitation, and oak savanna as a vegetation model.","Darrel Morrison","Darrel Morrison; Ian Firth; Kathleen Parker; Susan Mudd",MLA,"College of Environment and Design","Landscape Architecture",aten_nancy_m_200305_mla,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/aten_nancy_m_200305_mla,eng,uga,public,"Urban Ecology; Oak Savanna; Ecological Restoration; Landscape Scale; Milwaukee",,"City neighborhood and Oak Savanna",Thesis +,10724/20051,"Austin, Rebecca Lynne",2003-05,"Transnational environmentalism has traditionally been considered an environmentalism that emphasizes the conservation of "nature," not social justice and the empowerment of local peoples. On Palawan Island, Philippines, the linkages between meso-level environmental Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and local fisherfolk are the primary foundation for social justice, food security, and the empowerment of local peoples through community-based coastal resources management (CBCRM). This suggests that these linkages are the basis for CBCRM, which focuses more on social justice, and less on scientific, technocratic, or preservationist approaches to resource management. Since the People Power movement and the new Philippine Constitution of 1987 the democratic space in the Philippines became especially conducive to communitybased resource management. My research is significant because it fills several gaps in the literature on environmentalism. First, the relationship between meso-level NGOs and local communities is rarely addressed in analyses of environmental movements, which are usually focused primarily on either transnational discourses or local case studies. Second, most contemporary environmental movements have focused more on the conservation of nature, and not on social justice and the empowerment of local peoples. Third, there is a dearth of literature on coastal environmentalism. Palawan in particular has received international attention for its high biological diversity and is host to a growing number of coastal environmental programs. Recently, environmentalism has begun to emphasize the conservation and regeneration of the world’s oceans and coastal zones. Utilizing tools and perspectives from cultural anthropology and other disciplines, this research analyzes the linkages between NGOs and local peoples. Unlike projections made by early critiques of NGOs, many Palawan environmental advocacy NGOs started as volunteer organizations, and with the infusion of donor funding have not “sold out” advocacy to become project mangers. On Palawan, hybrid NGOs have maintained advocacy positions and activities while taking on project management roles. The research suggests that fisherfolk become empowered through relationships with and information learned from NGOs along with government agencies, and will likely maintain those relationships for effective resource management as opposed to an ideal held by NGO environmentalists for autonomous self-determination.","J.

Most of the debate surrounding transcendental arguments has centered on their failure to accomplish what their advocates intend them to accomplish. They are typically called upon to settle decisively the philosophical difficulties they address by establishing necessary metaphysical claims through a consideration of the conditions of the possibility of epistemological premises. That is, transcendental arguments make a claim about reality, what is actually the case, based upon appearance, what is believed to be the case or how things seem. In Chapters One and Two, I will give an account of the chief characteristics and structure of transcendental arguments and provide several canonical exemplars, which will exhibit not only different manifestations that transcendental arguments can take but also the issues they have been used to address. The most common criticism of transcendental arguments is that they are not able to span the justificatory gap between appearance and reality or to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of moving from mind to world. In Chapter Three, I will consider criticisms of transcendental arguments, focusing on the most common criticism given by Barry Stroud. In light of Stroud’s trenchant criticism, recent work reveals an optimistic undertone by some philosophers who would promote a more moderate use of transcendental arguments. Rather than establish necessary claims about reality, transcendental arguments reveal necessary epistemological connections. I will argue that although these moderate versions are indeed legitimate as transcendental arguments, there is no need to discard the more ambitious version. Through the work of John McDowell, I will show how Stroud’s criticism can be overcome, thereby removing the incentive to endorse moderate versions as substitutes for ambitious versions and placing renewed confidence in transcendental argumentation. In Chapter Three, I will present and offer a critique of these moderate versions. In Chapters Four, Five, and Six, I will consider McDowell’s work in my defense of transcendental arguments against the criticisms previously noted.","O. Bradley Bassler","O.

The study seeks to add to our understanding of the effect that internal organizational characteristics and external environmental factors can have on an organization’s choice to become involved in the policy process through the courts. The study uses a three-part analysis to understand the court-based advocacy of these groups, using three research questions for the study: (1) Over a period of ten years, what factors affect the choice of charitable nonprofit advocacy groups to participate in the courts? (2) What factors explain the annual frequency of the court-based advocacy of charitable nonprofit advocacy groups? (3) Of the charitable nonprofit advocacy groups that choose to participate in the courts, what factors affect the legal strategy choices they make on individual cases? To examine these questions, I collected court involvement data and organizational characteristic data on all charities in the United States that claimed to be involved in advocacy activities and whose annual income exceeded approximately three million dollars. The study finds that when considered from a cumulative perspective, over a period of ten years, internal organizational characteristics, including the presence of dues-paying members, are important in explaining the differences between charities that chose to advocate in court in the 1990s and those that did not. However, when considering court-based advocacy from an annual or case-level perspective, external environmental factors, including the regulatory and political environments, have a greater influence on charities.","Susan Haire; Scott Ainsworth","Susan Haire; Scott Ainsworth; Audrey Haynes; Jeff Brudney; Stefanie Lindquist; Hal Rainey",PhD,"Political Science","Political Science",basinger_nancy_w_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/basinger_nancy_w_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Nonprofit Advocacy; Interest Groups in Court; Charities and Public Policy",,"Charities in court : the advocacy efforts of charitable nonprofit organizations in the judicial venue - when? how? and how much?",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Bates, Benjamin Roswell",2003-05,"The Arab-Israeli conflict has long been presented as eternal and irresolvable. A rhetorical history argues that the standard narrative can be challenged by considering it a series of rhetorical problems. These rhetorical problems can be reconstructed by drawing on primary sources as well as publicly presented texts. A methodology for doing rhetorical history that draws on Michael Calvin McGee's fragmentation thesis is offered. Four theoretical concepts (the archive, institutional intent, peripheral text, and center text) are articulated. British Colonial Office archives, London Times coverage, and British Parliamentary debates are used to interpret four publicly presented rhetorical acts. In 1915-7, Britain issued the Balfour Declaration and the McMahon-Hussein correspondence. Although these documents are treated as promises in the standard narrative, they are ambiguous declarations. As ambiguous documents, these texts offer opportunities for constitutive readings as well as limiting interpretations. In 1922, the Mandate for Palestine was issued to correct this vagueness. Rather than treating the Mandate as a response to the debate between realist foreign policy and self-determination, Winston Churchill used epideictic rhetoric to foreclose a policy discussion in favor of a vote on Britain's honour. As such, the Mandate did not account for Wilsonian drives in the post-War international sphere. After Arab riots and boycotts highlighted this problem, a commission was appointed to investigate new policy approaches. In the White Paper of 1939, a rhetoric of investigation limited Britain's consideration of possible policies. By extending investigation to the limits of kairos, advocates of partition formulated policy without discussing other potential solutions. At the expiration of the White Paper, Britain withdrew from Palestine. As such, in 1947, the United Nations issued Resolution 181 to divide Palestine into two states. United Nations action was possible only because Britain articulated a rhetoric of failure and an end to Empire. None of these four policies was a panacea; each may have enhanced the problem of Palestine. In the conclusion, lessons from Britain's experience are applied to the current American approach to Palestine. Centering George W. Bush's Rose Garden Speech, and drawing on the Mitchell Commission Report and the Tenet Plan, indicates that consideration of ambiguity, epideictic rhetoric, rhetorics of investigation, and rhetorics of failure should be made when evaluating peace proposals.","Celeste Condit","Celeste Condit; Thomas Lessl; John Murphy; Kevin DeLuca; Loch Johnson",PhD,"Speech Communication","Speech Communication",bates_benjamin_r_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/bates_benjamin_r_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Rhetorical history; Palestine; British Empire; Middle East; Late colonial period; Interwar decolonization",,"A rhetorical history of the British Consitution of Israel, 1917-1948",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Baugher, Eric Brandon",2003-05,"Conventional historic preservation of military artifacts and sites is typically limited to presenting technological context and/or official military history.

Based heavily on Astin’s theory of involvement (1984) and numerous national reports addressing educational excellence, this study examines students’ intensity of involvement and organization expectations as two variables influencing perceived learning in the co-curriculum. A total of 437 sophomores, juniors, and seniors completed an 87- item survey primarily using Likert scales to gather information in three areas: (a) the amount of physical and psychological energy exerted by students on the organization, (b) students’ perceptions of skills and competencies gained due to group membership, and (c) students’ perceptions of organization expectations. Data were analyzed using Pearson’s correlations, regression, one-way ANOVA, and t-tests. Results indicated statistically significant correlations between intensity of involvement and perceived learning, as well as expectations and perceived learning. Regression questions yielded no statistically significant findings, indicating that perceived learning could not be predicted by expectations and involvement variables when combined, nor could intensity of involvement be predicted by expectation and intensity of involvement variables when combined. T-tests run on all variables suggested that three expectation variables – high expectations, consistent and clear feedback, and joined the organization expecting to learn were most important when explaining students’ perceived learning in the co-curriculum. ANOVA tests revealed that presidents and vice presidents of organizations perceived higher levels of learning than did other students in the organization, yet student expectations for learning did not vary based on position in the organization. Implications of research findings were discussed and recommendations for future practice were made, including suggestions such as continued study of non-formal modes as they relate to the co-curriculum, the use of curriculum development models normally used by faculty to develop curricular plans in the co-curriculum, implementation of policies and practices that promote increased student invo lvement, further exploration of the practices of student organization advisors, improved training for student organization advisors, and continued investigation into how the prevalence of hierarchical structures among student organizations impacts learning in the co-curriculum.","Diane L.

This performance limitation is a signifi- cant obstacle preventing the scientific community from adopting compiler-enforced array bounds checks. To reduce the overhead, we have created an abstraction that called Index Confinement Regions (ICRs). The basic idea is to place an array into a very large virtual memory region, such that any reference to the array is confined to the region. Only the portion of the ICR corresponding to the array is permissible to access. ICRs reduce the number of necessary bounds checks for n-dimensional array access from 2n to 1 for C, and from n to 0 for Java, yielding a significant reduction in execution time for array-intensive applications.","David K.

To learn more about the consequences of jealousy expression, this project proposes and tests four potential cognitive and emotional reactions to another’s jealousy expression. Specifically, general partner uncertainty, relational uncertainty, jealousy-related emotion, and rumination are predicted to arise when one’s close relational partner expresses jealousy. These reactions are examined in relation to relational context (i.e., dating partnership, sibling relationship, and cross-sex friendship) and jealousy expression type (i.e., integrative communication, distributive communication, and negative affect expression). Uncertainty findings revealed that cross-sex friends were more uncertain about the partner and the relationship than either siblings or daters after another expresses jealousy. Siblings experienced greater relational uncertainty than did dating partners when reacting to another’s jealousy expression. In addition, another’s use of negative affect expression was related to greater partner and relational uncertainty compared with another’s use of integrative communication. For jealousy-related emotion, siblings and dating partners experienced stronger jealousy-related emotion compared with cross-sex friends, though jealousyrelated emotion levels did not differ according to jealousy expression type. In terms of rumination, when one’s partner used distributive communication or negative affect expression to communicate jealousy, that individual ruminated more than if integrative communication was used. Rumination levels did not differ according to relational context. In addition, a reaction model of jealousy is presented that specifies the order in which these reactions occur after one’s close partner expresses jealousy. After one’s partner expresses jealousy, that individual first experiences general partner uncertainty, followed by relational uncertainty. Next, the individual ruminates about the jealousy expression and then finally experiences jealousy-related emotion. These results broaden jealousy expression research to include consequences of jealousy expression.","Jerold Hale","Jerold Hale; Kenzie Cameron; Jennifer Monahan; Michael Kernis; Tina Harris",PhD,"Speech Communication","Speech Communication",bevan_jennifer_l_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/bevan_jennifer_l_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Jealousy expression; General partner uncertainty; Relational uncertainty; Jealousy emotion; Rumination; Sibling relationships; Cross-sex friendships; Dating relationships",,"Intrapersonal consequences of another's jealousy expression : toward a reaction model of jealousy in close relationships",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Boehmer, Beatrice ",2003-05,"We analyze allocations to institutional and retail investors in 441 initial public offerings (IPOs) and test whether institutions obtain IPOs with superior long-run performance.

Due to numerous limitations of 2D-GE, high-throughput alternatives have been sought out. Shotgun proteomics allows for the analysis of an entire proteome simultaneously through batch digestion of whole-cell lysates. Proteins can be identified from the resulting complex mixture from accurate mass measurements of their constituent peptides. Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) is capable of achieving the part-per-million mass accuracy and ultra-high mass resolution needed for these measurements.

In this study, the effects of tillage and earthworm activity on SOM and carbon (C) protection were investigated. In the first experiment, the objective was to study the mechanisms by which C is protected under no-tillage (NT) management, using 14C-labeled plant residue. Aggregate-size distribution, total C, and 14C were measured together with different pools of aggregate-associated C and 14C from 21-d laboratory incubations of intact and crushed macro-and microaggregates. The results indicated that (i) more young C (14C) is accumulated in the subsurface soil of conventional tillage (CT) than NT, but this C is not stabilized in the long term, and (ii) short- and long-term stabilization of C is higher in the soil surface layers under NT compared with CT. This C stabilization occurs mainly at the microaggregate level. The objectives of the next set of experiments were to investigate the effects of different earthworm species (Aporrotedea caliginosa and Lumbricus rubellus) on aggregation, aggregate-associated C pools and the formation of stable microaggregates within macroaggregates. Two incubations were set up. The first incubation consisted of soil samples crushed <; 250 µm to break up all macroaggregates with three treatments: (i) control soil; (ii) soil + 13C-labeled residue; and (iii) soil + 13C-labeled residue + earthworms. After 20 days, aggregate size distribution was measured and microaggregates (53-250 µm) were isolated out of the formed macroaggregates (>; 250 µm). A second incubation was conducted to determine protected versus unprotected total C and 13C from 21-day laboratory incubations of intact and crushed macro- and microaggregates. The results indicated that microaggregates are rapidly formed within earthworm casts and showed the direct involvement of earthworms in inducing an important protection of soil C at the microaggregate level. The results also suggested that important interactions between earthworm species take place affecting the incorporation of fresh residue-derived C and the formation of stable microaggregates when fresh residue was placed on the surface.","Paul F.

Computer-assisted sperm motion analysis explained the mobility of sperm populations in terms of individual sperm cell motility. Fertility differed between phenotypes by 25%. Sperm from low mobility males contained more aberrant mitochondria when evaluated with transmission electron microscopy. Finally, males with heavier body weights had lower sperm mobility (P<; 0.0001). In summary, sperm mobility is indicative of semen quality in commercial broiler breeders.

Mean overall lymph tissue concentrations of AZT and 3TC were 8.13 (0.79) and 7.74 (0.66). Tissue to plasma concentration ratios were 0.36 (0.76) and 0.44 (0.51) for AZT and 3TC. Bromodichloromethane is a hepatic carcinogen present in chlorinated drinking water. A physiologically based pharmacokinetic model was developed to simulate concentrations in plasma and tissues of the Japanese Medaka fish (Orynchias latipes). Incidence of hepatocellular adenoma in male medaka exposed at three levels (0, 1.5, 15 mg/L) correlated very well (r2=1.00) with weekly averaged simulated area under the concentration versus time curve.","F.
