Games that will pay : college football and the emergence of the modern south by Matt Bailey( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is often said the college football in the South is a religion. While it may be hyperbole to equate college football with religion, a visit to a southern campus on game day affirms that football is an important aspect of southern society. How did this happen? In other words, how did college football in the South become big-time? This dissertation seeks to answer that question. Focusing on the advent of football on campuses in the early 1890s until the construction of large capacity campus stadiums in the 1930s and 1940s, I argue that although football initially burst onto campuses with a groundswell of student support, the support was ephemeral. By the turn of the century, support had dwindled and athletic associations were perpetually insolvent. Despite the dearth of interest, a handful of football enthusiasts worked diligently to insure survival of the sport. Operating within a network that relied heavily on personal relationships, these football enthusiasts scouted opponents, selected officials, and scheduled games that would pay to keep their struggling programs afloat. To insure adequate gate receipts, athletic directors jockeyed to secure contests in growing cities, especially Atlanta. The competition for these cities, however, caused tensions within the personalized sporting community and a severance of athletic relations between universities occasionally occurred. The formation of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) in 1894 to govern eligibility rules, and its ultimate dissolution over the application of the one year rule, marks a turning point for southern football. Disagreements over the one year rule, whereby players had to wait one year before playing, between larger universities who favored the rule and smaller universities who opposed it, led to a splintering of the SIAA. Breaking away from the smaller programs, the larger and more successful programs formed the Southern Conference, the precursor to the current Southeastern Conference. In doing so, they laid the foundation for the rise to prominence of big-time football. Progressive college presidents also played a crucial role in the development of the modern football spectacle. Recognizing that football was an effective "public relations weapon" to promote their school, secure needed alumni support, and ultimately increase state appropriations, they encouraged the development of strong football programs. Their support was paramount for the growing success of football. The construction of modern, large capacity stadia on campuses marks the final step in the development of modern football. By constructing these cathedrals to football, which necessitated a high level of student, alumni and community support, universities were announcing that their programs had come of age and achieved big-time status. A recurring theme throughout this study is how football illustrates the gradual emergence of the modern South. After the Civil War, the South underwent a series of economic and social changes. A self sufficient agricultural economy was replaced with a market economy based upon the production of cash crops--primarily cotton and tobacco. Cities like Atlanta, Nashville and Birmingham blossomed into centers of commerce. Despite these changes, the South remained an economic colony of the North and mired in crippling poverty. Using football as a lens to examine southern society highlights how the South from the 1890s until World War II, was a region in transition, a blend of old and new, modern and traditional. The protracted development of big-time football programs reinforced the slow emergence of the modern South

Bringing 'the city to the suburbs' : regional shopping centre development in Sydney, 1957-1994 by Matt Bailey( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis traces the history of large pre-planned shopping centre development in Sydney, Australia. It begins with the pre-history of international and Australian retailing and the establishment of shopping malls in America that were built to accommodate the needs and desires of an affluent, car-driving population. It charts the establishment of the early shopping centres in Sydney, beginning with Top Ryde, which opened in 1957. Local histories of a number of centres demonstrate the westward spread of retailing in the 1970s, which accompanied the emergence of discount department stores in Australia. With the city largely staked out by the 1980s, the industry turned to expansions and refurbishments to consolidate existing developments. By the end of the decade, such expansions included multiplex cinemas and food courts, confirming the shopping centre as a site of leisure and entertainment. -- Shopping centres have always been social destinations. From the 1960s to the present day, young people in particular have flocked to them as places to meet with friends and sample the latest goods on offer. Shopping centres have also been important social sites for women - the early centres were marketed almost exclusively to the housewife. As convenient, clean and safe environments that might also offer childcare facilities, they received a largely positive reception. This thesis uses oral histories, amongst other sources, to explore the social world of the shopping centre. -- With success and expansion, came calls of retail saturation and abuses of market power. In the 1980s, pedestrianisation schemes were introduced to a number of Sydney suburbs in attempts to revive local retail. Meanwhile retailing associations pursued legislation aimed at curbing the power of the largest landlords. Both had mixed success, and neither halted the growth nor success of the industry. -- Shopping centres form an important, as yet untold, component of Australia's social, economic and cultural history. This thesis explores their development, reception and impact in Sydney from the opening of Top Ryde in 1957 to the introduction of the NSW Retail Leases Act in 1994
Role of 11[beta]HSD2 in salt and water homeostasis by Louise C Evans( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

11[beta]-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 2 (11[beta]HSD2) catalyses the inactivation of cortisol. In aldosterone target tissues co-expression of 11[beta]HSD2 and mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) protects the receptor from activation by glucocorticoids. In the syndrome of Apparent Mineralocorticoid Excess, mutations in the HSD11B2 gene cause hypertension, which is thought to be driven by volume expansion secondary to sodium retention. 11[beta]HSD2 mice are indeed hypertensive but paradoxically volume contracted, suggestive of a urine-concentrating defect. The current studies were designed to evaluate sodium and water homeostasis in 11[beta]HSD2-/- mice. 11[beta]HSD2-/- mice developed a severe and progressive polyuric-polydipsic phenotype. Despite basal polyuria, at <100 days 11[beta]HSD2-/- mice had a functional concentration response when challenged with 24 hours water deprivation. At >180 days the exacerbated polyuria was associated with severe medullary injury in the null mice. Basal aquaporin 2 (AQP2) abundance was reduced in the 11[beta]HSD2-/- mice at both <100 and >180 days. Moreover, vasopressin 2 receptor (V2R) stimulation failed to normalize the impaired response to water deprivation in >180 day null mice. Consequently, a renal origin to the polyuria was postulated. Indeed, mice in which 11[beta]HSD2 had been selectively targeted in the brain had a normal water turnover. A key finding from these studies is that functional deletion of 11[beta]HSD2 in the brain, specifically the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS), resulted in an increased salt appetite. Moreover, the mice displayed a preference for 1.5% NaCl over water. Blockade of mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) significantly reduced NaCl intake. This is the first demonstration of an increased salt appetite in a model with normal renal function and in the absence of sodium depletion. These data implicate activation of MR on 11[beta]HSD2 positive neurons in the NTS in the behavioural drive to consume sodium
