UNIVERSITY RESEARCHER AND LAW ENFORCEMENT COLLABORATION LESSONS F... Sociology

In 2012, heads of local law enforcement agencies in Benton County, Oregon, contacted researchers at Oregon State University to discuss a problem: a sharp rise in the amount of contact between police and suspects displaying symptoms of mental illness. This initial contact led to an ongoing collaborat... Continue Reading

ASSESSING THE EFFECTS OF RECENT IMMIGRATION ON SERIOUS PROPERTY C... Sociology

ABSTRACT: In this article the authors examine the impact of recent immigration on rates of serious property crime across communities in Austin, Texas. The greater Austin foreign-born population has increased by more than 580 percent since 1980, and Austin is considered a “preemerging” immigrant gate... Continue Reading

THE EFFECT OF OWNERSHIP STRUCTURE ON THE PRICE EARNINGS RATIO — R... Business Administration

Prior studies document the systematic tendency for firms with low price to earnings ratios (LPE) to earn higher stock returns and firms with high price to earnings ratios (HPE) to earn lower stock returns, in both the United States and in international markets (Campbell & Shiller, 2001; Capaul, Rowl...

A MULTIPLEXER-BASED DIGITAL PASSIVE LINEAR COUNTER (PLINCO) Electrical Electronics

A ones adder is an important circuit block that is required in many varying applications. This work proposes a design that largely relies on passive transmission-gate multiplexers. Many variations are suggested that can inherently generate a thermometer coded output or one-hot encoded output. The pr... Continue Reading

USAGE, COSTS, AND BENEFITS OF CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION IN OPEN-SOUR... Computer Science

Continuous integration (CI) systems automate the compilation, building, and testing of software. Despite CI rising as a big success story in automated software engineering, it has received almost no attention from the research community. For example, how widely is CI used in practice, and what are s... Continue Reading

SOLAR THERMOCHEMICAL ENERGY STORAGE THROUGH CARBONATION CYCLES OF... Chemical Engineering

Concentrated solar power (CSP) generation combined with energy storage has the intrinsic advantage of dispatchability, which is the ability to provide energy upon demand, or alternatively, store energy when there is no demand. Despite this advantage, a transformational breakthrough is needed in the... Continue Reading

EINSTEIN’S EQUATIONS IN THE PRESENCE OF SIGNATURE CHANGE Mathematics

INTRODUCTION Classical cosmological models containing an initial region of Euclidean signature joined to a final region with the usual Lorentzian signature were introduced by Ellis et al.1,2 A basic feature of this work is the use of the Darmois junction conditions at the surface where the signatur...

MULTISCALE EFFECTS OF INTERFACIAL POLYMER CONFINEMENT IN SILICA N... Chemical Engineering

For many natural and synthetic composite materials, enhancing or reinforcing the linear and nonlinear viscoelastic properties of polymer (elastomer) materials is accomplished by inclusion filler particles (e.g. carbon black, silica).1–4 Mechanical properties of elastomer systems can be substantial...

AROMA POTENTIAL IN EARLY- AND LATE-MATURITY PINOT NOIR GRAPES EVA... Food Science And Technolo...

Grape-derived aromas are of great importance to differentiate wines on the basis of the grape variety1 and quality. Grape-derived volatile compounds as well as their precursors are formed during the ripening stage of the grape.2,3 Their specific profiles mainly depend on the variety although environ...

LEAF PROCESSING BEHAVIOUR IN ATTA LEAFCUTTER ANTS 90% OF LEAF CUT... Bio Chemistry

We observed and videotaped processing behaviours of our laboratory A. cephalotes colony. For ease of recording, we scooped roughly 10 cm diameter balls of comb material and the associated ants into glass-topped containers and provided them with Rubus armeniacus or Prunus lusitanica leaves. During mo... Continue Reading

ENTREPRENEURIAL MOTIVES AND CHARACTERISTICS AN ANALYSIS OF SMALL... Business Administration

As Zhao and Getz (2008) observed, the tourism and hospitality sectors are generally dominated by small and family businesses worldwide. Some major contributions of these businesses include job creation, economic revitalization (Fleischer & Felsenstein, 2004; Wanhill, 2000), destination developmen... Continue Reading

AN EXAMINATION OF THE SHRIMP FUTURES MARKET Marketing

Abstract. The only two seafood commodities traded in futures markets are frozen white and black tiger shrimps on the Minneapolis Grain Exchange (MGE). These two contracts, however, have failed to attract the expected trade volume based on the underlying shrimp cash market flow. First, we investiga... Continue Reading

MEASURING THE EFFECTS OF THE 199899 PAN-EUROPEAN SALMON MARKETING... Marketing

Abstract. In July 1997 a trade agreement between Norway and the European Union went into effect. The agreement specifies an increase in the export levy on Norwegian salmon entering the EU from 0.75% to 3.00% ad valorem. The proceeds of the levy are to be used by the Norwegian Seafood Export Council... Continue Reading

SUBSIDIES PROMOTE USE OF DROUGHT TOLERANT MAIZE VARIETIES DESPITE... Home Economics

This study used a three-year panel dataset for 350 Malawian farm households to examine the potential for widespread adoption of drought tolerant (DT) maize varieties, a technology that holds considerable promise for helping smallholder farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) adapt to drought risk. Regre... Continue Reading
