Subjects/Keywords: the scrivener\","the pursuit of happiness in Herman Melville's "The piazza" and "Bartleby, the scrivener"","A progress of the desire",Thesis +,10724/20051,"Arnold, Tara Guest",2003-05,"Severe mental illness and substance abuse are serious problems alone, and when they are combined they can be even more devastating. 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. Despite the limitations, the study demonstrates that people improve while in dual diagnosis treatment, even those clients with a single diagnosis.","Kevin DeWeaver","Kevin DeWeaver; Patricia Reeves; Edwin Risler",PhD,Sociology,"Social Work",arnold_tara_g_200305_phd,http://purl.galileo.usg.edu/uga_etd/arnold_tara_g_200305_phd,eng,uga,public,"Dual diagnosis; Treatment; SMI; Research; Substance Abuse; BASIS-32; MAI; BHS; CAR; BDI-II.",,"Evaluation of an innovative dual diagnosis program : Skyland Trail's Operation Prevention (STOP).",Dissertation +,10724/20051,"Aten, Nancy Marie",2003-05,"Ecological landscape rehabilitation is explored in cities, especially the significance of scale, and the sense of place that is encouraged through the use of an indigenous vegetation model. The natural landscape and natural processes in cities have been modified beyond recognition, simplified, and obscured; however, the dependence of people on those processes and resources remains in a critical, tenuous, and not completely understood balance. 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.

The radial maze was placed in a featureless octagonal enclosure to minimize the availability of extramaze cues. Intramaze cues were provided at the distal end of each arm by placing a small object in front of the food trough; unique objects were randomly sampled from a large pool of objects. The use of extramaze and intramaze cues was assessed by rotating the objects, after the retention interval, on occasional non-rewarded probes, thereby dissociating the location of extramaze and intramaze cues.

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.

While this guarantee improves the correctness and security of array-based code, it adds overhead to array references. 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.

Moreover, we examine whether institutions possess better information than retail investors once trading has begun by analyzing how actual flipping by institutional and retail investors relates to long-run IPO performance. In contrast to previous research, we find no significant relationship between institutional or retail flipping and returns. Both results lend strong support to bookbuilding theories. In the second part, we examine the determinants of IPO-related securities-fraud lawsuits. Using duration analysis, we find that not only variables known at the time of the IPO predict the filing of subsequent lawsuits but also information that changes over time and becomes available after the IPO. Furthermore, we provide additional evidence on the lawsuit-avoidance theory of underpricing (Tinic (1988)).

Traditionally, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2D-GE) followed by mass spectrometry has been utilized to identify proteins. 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.

In order to support development of a clean, simple, and precise means of determining glomerular filtration rate in dogs, the plasma clearance of iohexol was compared with urinary creatinine clearance at different levels of obesity (lean, fattened, and obese). Absolute plasma clearance of iohexol increased with obesity as expected; body weight adjusted plasma clearance of iohexol did not increase significantly.
