Testing MiniSTR primers for addition to a PCR-based forensic specimen identification protocol by Laura Guzmán Stein( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An assay has been developed for polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based human identity testing using the Federal Bureau of Investigation's human Combined DNA Identity System (CODIS) primers. Recent forensic literature has identified difficulties using these primers due to amplicon size and the degraded nature of DNA from forensic samples. Primers termed mini Short-Tandem Repeat (STR) primers targeted to the same loci as the CODIS primers but which have smaller amplicons have been developed. Two of the three miniSTR primer pairs examined with our established assay were successfully tested with forensic DNA. This allowed the substitution of new primers for detection of a locus, D16S539, which was poorly defined in our assay and the addition of a primer pair for a locus, FGA, not previously included. The replacement of the D16S539 CODIS primers with the miniSTR primers will provide more accurate results for this locus. The addition of the FGA mini STR primers to the core set of tested loci will increase the overall power of discrimination of our assay."--Report documentation page
Analysis of cocaine, its metabolites, prolysis products, and ethanol adducts in postmortem fluids and tissues using Zymark [superscript registered trademark symbol] automated solid-phase extractions and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry( )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cocaine (COC) is one of the most widely abused illicit drugs in America. COC abuse transcends all social, racial, and economic boundaries. Following the introduction in the mid-1980s of a new form of cocaine called crack, cocaine use has been on the rise. Because of its intense high, crack smoking has become very popular. Despite its popularity, crack smoking is a particularly dangerous form of COC use. Additionally, COC and ethanol are frequently used together, resulting in the formation of a biologically active molecule that is nearly as psycoactive as COC but produces a longer lasting and toxic effect. Demonstrating the presence or absence of COC and COC-related molecules in postmortem fluids and/or tissues can have serious legal consequences and may help determine the cause of impairment and/or death. We have developed a simple method for the simultaneous determination of COC and the COC metabolites benzoylecgonine, norbenzoylecgonine, ecgonine methyl ester, ecgonine, and norcocaine, as well as anhydroecgonine methyl ester (a unique byproduct of COC smoking), cocaethylene (a molecule formed by the concurrent use of COC and ethanol) and their related metabolites, anhydroecgonine, norcocaethylene, and ecgonine ethyl ester. This method incorporates a Zymark RapidTrace automated solid-phase extraction system, gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, and PFP/PFPA derivatives. The lower limits of detection ranged from 0.78 - 12.5 ng/mL, and the linear dynamic range for most analytes was 0.78 3200 ng/mL. The extraction efficiencies were from 26 - 84%, with the exception of anhydroecgonine and ecgonine, which were from 1 - 4%. We applied this method to 5 aviation fatalities. This method has proven to be simple, robust, and accurate for the simultaneous determination of COC and 11 COC metabolites in postmortem fluids and tissues

Men are cheaper than gold : English sailors and their irreligiousness towards society, 1560-1642 by Dennis Ray Savill( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The English common sailor rose from his humble beginnings to the pinnacle of renown and fame during the repulsion of the Spanish Armada in 1588. Afterwards, with the rise of the privateer and the merchant ships, the Royal Navy found it difficult to retain quality mariners. Following many decades of deriding and dehumanizing the tar, the men engendered and reproduced an attitude of irreligiousness towards religion in general and Christianity in particular, mocking the officers who represented the society, which denigrated them. This paper will explore the practices and transmission types of this irreligiousness and the way the state attempted to utilize the seamen to extend their power while simultaneously minimizing their importance to society. Using mainly sailor memoirs or pamphlets from the period, the paper also examines how contemporary historians and those of successive generations viewed the irreligiousness of the seamen. In the mid-sixteenth century, authorities initiated intensive regulations and discipline, which historians later labeled as Biopower, in shaping and controlling the behavior of the British sailor for the good of the state, which in turn led the men to exhibit agency, in the forms of irreligiousness, employment choice, and their very lifestyle, in resisting this drive to become high society's view of "British." In due course at the beginning of it all, the hypocrisy of the established society juxtaposed against the sailor who enjoyed life to the fullest in an attempt to handle the stresses of this never before seen deep sea lengthy voyages demonstrates two differing tales of this early age of sail for the English. One story depicts the dashing officer rallying men onward to capture the prize or prevail against the raging storm, afterwards asking all to bow their heads as they thanked God for their deliverance. This same yarn shows the exasperated lieutenant, trudging from tavern to brothel, searching for the able but alcoholic tar and beseeching him to sign on for a voyage, for his own good, so he could attain some money for himself and perhaps his future. The other tale relates overbearing officers, usually hapless but mostly cruel, looking for their own gain on the backs of sailors and slaves, all the while committing the same kinds of acts he admonished the men for doing. The truth, as anyone looking back over so many centuries and relying on manuscripts and journals can detect, most likely resides somewhere in the middle but probably nearer to the cruel officer theme. British society did engage in applying Biopower to controlling the sailors and that the seamen used agency in their irreligiousness to fight back. This paper shines a light on an aspect of mariner agency that has been often overlooked. Their very lifestyles and indifference to prudent living such as savings, church-going, and other forms of high society shows they fought against the system which sought to control them with their very lives and minds."--Abstract
Head or heart? : The Richardson-Fanning Controversy and its effect on spirituality in the Stone-Campbell movement by Keven Kent Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Robert Richardson, a leader in the early Stone-Campbell Movement, an indigenous American church, challenged the theology of the sect, which consubstantiated Spirit and scripture. The group highly regarded enlightened philosophy whereas emotionalism, like which occurred at camp meetings during the Second Great Awakening, was eschewed. The result was a de-emphasis on Christian spirituality. Dr. Richardson challenged another coreligionist, Tolbert Fanning, who held an extreme application of sensate materialism. In so doing, this study will show Richardson awoke spiritual slumbers and catalyzed devotional life in the movement resulting in the advent of pious literature. Research consisted primarily of nineteenth century primary narrative sources especially denominational journals, personal correspondence, eyewitness accounts, as well as quantitative research of available print catalogues. Following the controversy and in the four decades prior to 1900, the fifth largest denomination in the United States produced few resources to aid in the understanding of the Holy Spirit or materials to enhance the spiritual lives of its members. Herculean forces resisted Richardson's efforts. From an entrenched Lockean philosophy, an inherent aversion to emotionalism and revivalism, a devastating debate with a southern leader who, along with the southern states, cut off all communication during the Civil War to the chaos of competition by bishop-editors. Nonetheless, Richardson's influence instigated devotional writings when previously there were none: a major treatise on the Holy Spirit and seven other books were penned that focused on Christian lifestyle and piety, and additionally, three other sermonic publications included [homiletical] entries of a pietistic nature. A larger, longitudinal study of the influence of Lockean epistemology on the movement many give insight into the continued resistance to spirituality and the eventual, rapid growth of devotional publications."--Abstract
Democratization and Islam : the Senegalese exception by Mohamed Moctar Faye( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This thesis analyzes the factors conducive to secularism in Senegal. It shows that Islam is in fact compatible with democracy and freedom. Indeed, despite the persistence of authoritarianism in many Islamic societies, Senegal, with a 94% Muslim population, experienced a successful political transition from 1960 to 2000. The articulation between religion and politics differs from the scenario observed in other Muslim countries like Algeria, Sudan, Iraq and Syria. Senegal is a secular state with a democratic political culture that stemmed from the colonial era."--Abstract
