Eikon Basilike, meaning “the King’s Image,” was written in defense of King Charles I, who was executed in 1649 following disputes and charges from his parliament. As he was perceived by his English opponents to be a ...
Crosslinking the 3′ End of a VLAT to RNA Polymerase: A Method to Elucidate Forward Hyper-Translocation
On a typically strong E. coli promoter, as nascent RNA grows to 8-10 nt⎯accompanied by scrunching 6-8 bp of the enlarged transcription bubble⎯the initial DNA-RNAP contacts disrupt, upstream bubble rewinds, promoter escape ...
The Relationship between Radar Scattering and Lunar Surface Roughness
Understanding the morphology of volcanic features on the Moon is essential to discovering their emplacement mechanisms. It is possible to use radar to distinguish different volcanic terrains on the Moon. In this work, we ...
The Interpretation of the Shrew
This project looks at the various ways in which directors and actors have interpreted The Taming of the Shrew for the theater by examining several stage productions done in England and the United States in the last 35 years.
DRYING DYNAMICS OF SESSILE DROPLETS ON SUBSTRATES OF DIFFERENT WETTABILITIES
The interaction between a liquid and a solid substrate, as encountered in any wetting phenomenon, is relevant to a wide range of industrial and biological applications. The drying mechanism was first explored by Deegan and ...
Manipulation of Individual Magnetic Domain Walls with a Local Circular Field
Understanding domain wall (DW) motion in nanoscale ferromagnetic structures reveals intriguing physics, with tremendous potential applications in logic devices and racetrack memory. Work has been done to move a series of ...
A Comparative Study of Forelimb Muscle Recruitment During Landing in Three Anuran Species: Rana catesbeiana, Rana pipiens and Bufo marinus
Muscles are what allow animals to walk, jump, run and swim. While they are important in generating the force and power required for propulsive movements, they also are integral to slowing down, serving to absorb energy ...
Quantifying Physical Characteristics and Weathering of Bedrock in Relation to Landscape Development in the Colorado Front Range
Bedrock weathering is a fundamental component of critical zone geomorphology that can be influenced by rock strength, fracture spacing, mineralogy, and topoclimate. By quantifying rock strength, we can characterize bedrock ...
The Chilean Winter: Student Movements and Higher Education Reform in Chile
In the winter of 2011 (May-August) higher education students throughout Chile mobilized to improve their neoliberalized education system that they perceive to be in crisis. Through a historical review of Chilean higher ...
