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 234 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 154 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
The dynamics of rowing by Nicole Gibbon( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A phenomena experienced by many athletes, referred to as `hitting the wall' lacks empirical evidence of occurrence. Data from eighteen collegiate female rowers (eight novice, ten varsity) revealed the dynamics of rowing emphasizing the dynamical pattern for the extreme physical duress period during a rowing task. The pattern identified displayed three distinct portions: the burst, the wall, and the recovery. Participants completed a 2000 meter task and 6000 meter task as a rowing ergometer recorded performance measured in watts during meter intervals. Results showed that the two training levels were significantly different in speed, though the distinct dynamical portions occurred at statistically similar meter intervals in each task for both training levels. Evidence suggests that the dynamical rowing pattern including `hitting the wall' is dependent on teleanticipatory mechanisms (perceived task end), which occur in the rowing dynamical pattern proportional to the rowing distance regardless the training level or fatigue."--Abstract
Victimization : homeless in the heartland by Thad D Merrill( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines victimization of 21 homeless individuals and noted viewpoints on crimes relating to the homeless from caretakers in Oklahoma City proper. The crimes reported to the police are listed and examined to assess or understand how the environment is related to their victimization. Through the use of qualitative methods and grounded theory, the homeless and their caretakers provided a wealth of information into an often hidden world of the homeless. This sample of 21 homeless individuals had an average of five victimizations during their period of homelessness. Although they experienced numerous crimes, few were reported to the police. Various theoretical concepts, crime maps, and interview data were used to determine a grounded explanation of crimes against this sample of the homeless. This study found the proximity of three homeless shelters may contribute to robberies, and petty thefts among this sample of 21 homeless."--Abstract
Bystander intervention programming at metropolitan universities by Adrienne M Martinez( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The current study reviews the responsibilities and benefits of institutions in receipt of federal funding to provide bystander education as a primary prevention program to students per current federal regulations and guidance. Existing bystander intervention programs have the potential to 1) train key staff by experts; 2) continue training of other staff via train-the-trainer efforts; 3) implement a variety of student-specific programming (such as gender neutral, gender-specific, student athletes, Greek students, and other student organizations and leadership groups); and, 4) obtain/maintain compliance with federal guidance and recent legislative mandates. Per Potter and Stapleton (2011), practitioners need to decide if purchasing an existing program, developed and evaluated at another institution, will in fact be successful at the investing institution. Metropolitan universities typically have student populations of that are older (non-traditional), have lower socioeconomic statuses, have minority backgrounds (Barnett & Phares, 1995); commute, are more likely to be employed (Muhollan, 1995); and, are first-generation college students (Barnett & Phares, 1995). Vast diversity can present challenges to engaging a student body with a one-handed type of approach. Metropolitan universities would be benefited most by 1) purchasing an existing train-the-trainer bystander intervention program; 2) identifying the needs of unique metropolitan university student groups; 3) modifying the program to meet these needs; 4) developing a strategic implementation plan; 5) pre/post assessment plans; and, 6) identifying accompanying social marketing campaign strategies. Considerations for developing a modified bystander intervention program at a metropolitan university and meeting these needs are discussed."--Abstract

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 16 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

Music heard deeply : song and ethnic interaction in the Cherokee Ozarks by J. Justin Castro( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Musical practices provide important insights into the interests, opinions, and beliefs of a study population. While demonstrating the role of music in historical analysis, this work also tells a narrative of the varied people and influences that shaped music and society in the Oklahoma Ozarks, from the arrival of the 'Old Settler' Cherokee in 1828 to present day folk roots rockers. The 1800s is the predominant focus of this study; however, forays are made into previous and following centuries to establish origins of musical practices and the legacies that continue today"--Abstract, leaves viii-ix
