Earth Forms narrates and explains the Masters Project Exhibition by the same name. The sculptures included in the exhibition, Earth Forms, use a variety of personal symbols centered on one stylized human head. Some of the symbols included are antlers, branches, coral, leaves, plants and stones. Each of these symbols represents personal ideas of balance, growth and decay. They also represent the earth from which we are formed and the earth to which our bodies will return at the end of life.


Tensions Between Word And Image In Amalie Skram's Professor Hieronimus, Benjamin A. Bigelow 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Tensions Between Word And Image In Amalie Skram's Professor Hieronimus, Benjamin A. Bigelow

All Theses and Dissertations

In her 1895 novel, Professor Hieronimus, Amalie Skram describes the struggle of Else Kant, a young mother and artist, against a tyrannical and apparently unfeeling doctor who keeps her at a Copenhagen asylum for more than a month against her will. Else feels terrorized by the constant surveillance to which she is subjected. This voyeuristic tendency in psychiatry is not only a reflection of Amalie Skram's own experience at a Copenhagen asylum, but is also indicative of a new psychiatric epistemology that understood visual observation as the key to ascertaining objective truth. Skram's novel is thus read against ...


The Shia Migration From Southwestern Iran To Kuwait: Push-Pull Factors During The Late Nineteenth And Early Twentieth Centuries, Mohammad E. Alhabib 2010 Georgia State University

The Shia Migration From Southwestern Iran To Kuwait: Push-Pull Factors During The Late Nineteenth And Early Twentieth Centuries, Mohammad E. Alhabib

History Theses

This study explores the “push-pull” dynamics of Shia migration from southwestern Iran (Fars, Khuzestan and the Persian Gulf coast) to Kuwait during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Although nowadays Shias constitute thirty five percent of the Kuwaiti population and their historical role in building the state of Kuwait have been substantial, no individual study has delved into the causes of Shia migration from Iran to Kuwait. By analyzing the internal political, economic, and social conditions of both regions in the context of the Gulf sheikhdoms, the British and Ottoman empires, and other great powers interested in dominating the ...

Meditation And Mental Freedom: A Buddhist Theory Of Free Will, Rick Repetti 2010 CUNY Kingsborough Community College

Meditation And Mental Freedom: A Buddhist Theory Of Free Will, Rick Repetti

Publications and Research

I argue that central Buddhist tenets and meditation methodology support a view of free will similar to Harry Frankfurt’s optimistic view and contrary to Galen Strawson’s pessimistic view. For Frankfurt, free will involves a relationship between actions, volitions, and “metavolitions” (volitions about volitions): simplifying greatly, volitional actions are free if the agent approves of them. For Buddhists, mental freedom involves a relationship between mental states and “metamental” states (mental attitudes toward mental states): simplifying greatly, one has mental freedom if one is able to control one’s mental states, and to the extent one has mental freedom when ...

Mock-Ups In Design : The Implications Of Utlizing [Sic] A Mock-Up Review Process In Professional Practice, Charles M. Boggs 2010 Florida International University

Mock-Ups In Design : The Implications Of Utlizing [Sic] A Mock-Up Review Process In Professional Practice, Charles M. Boggs

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this research is to examine the use of a mock-up review process in interior design projects to better understand the implications of using such a process within the standard professional practice model. The research consisted of interviewing design professionals who utilize mock-ups as part of their standard of practice. These interviews were centered around two groups - those working in shipbuilding, where mock-ups have a long history, and those working in land-based projects, where mock-up use is rare. Analysis of the interviews indicated a positive relationship between mock-up use and collaboration, innovation, and problem solving. The interviews also ...

Assessing The Ability Of Soils And Sediment To Adsorb And Retain Cs-137 In Puerto Rico, Warner Ithier-Guzman 2010 University of South Florida

Assessing The Ability Of Soils And Sediment To Adsorb And Retain Cs-137 In Puerto Rico, Warner Ithier-Guzman

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

As part of the radioactive exercises taking place around the world anthropogenic

radionuclides were introduce to Puerto Rico’s terrestrial and aquatic environments

beginning in 1962. Two major projects took place in the island, the Rain Forest Project

and the construction of a Boiling Superheat Nuclear Power Plant (BONUS). While in

operation several accidental shutdowns occurred at the BONUS facility. One of these

accidental shutdowns released 582 MBq into the nearby environment. Vieques an island

located few miles east of the main island has received anthropogenic inputs of heavy

metals resulting from military practices conducted by the US Navy. Due ...


Geographic Variation In Life History Tactics, Adaptive Growth Rates, And Habitatspecific Adaptations In Phylogenetically Similar Species: The Eastern Fence Lizard, Sceloporus Undulatus Undulatus, And The Florida Scrub Lizard, Sceloporus Woodi, Travis R. Robbins 2010 University of South Florida

Geographic Variation In Life History Tactics, Adaptive Growth Rates, And Habitatspecific Adaptations In Phylogenetically Similar Species: The Eastern Fence Lizard, Sceloporus Undulatus Undulatus, And The Florida Scrub Lizard, Sceloporus Woodi, Travis R. Robbins

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

To understand the evolutionary and ecological significance of geographic variation in life

history traits, we must understand whether the patterns are induced through plastic or adaptive

responses. The Eastern Fence Lizard, Sceloporus undulatus

, exhibits countergradient variation

(larger body sizes, et cetera, in northern, cooler environments; presumed adaptive) in life history

traits across its large geographic range. However, cogradient variation (the expected result from

a plastic response, although not necessarily inconsistent with adaptation) has been suggested as

a null hypothesis, especially on fine geographic scales because of relatively small environmental

changes. Here we focus on life history variation on a fine ...

Physicians, Society, And The Science Fiction Genre In The Film Versions Of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers: Or Doctors With A Serious Pod Complex, Brett S. Stifflemire 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Physicians, Society, And The Science Fiction Genre In The Film Versions Of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers: Or Doctors With A Serious Pod Complex, Brett S. Stifflemire

All Theses and Dissertations

Close textual analysis of the four extant film versions of Invasion of the Body Snatchers reveals that each film modifies the original story such that it reflects changing societal attitudes toward physicians and the medical profession, as well as depictions of military and government in the science fiction genre. The changing depictions of characters and events in these films respond to changes in medical history, social history, and the science fiction genre across five decades. Each film reflects the contemporary anxieties of its time and the perceived ability of physicians to relieve those anxieties. Doctors are important semantic elements of ...


Computer Simulation Of Metal-Organic Materials, Abraham C. Stern 2010 University of South Florida

Computer Simulation Of Metal-Organic Materials, Abraham C. Stern

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Computer simulations of metal-organic frameworks are conducted to both

investigate the mechanism of hydrogen sorption and to elucidate a detailed,

molecular-level understanding of the physical interactions that can lead to successful

material design strategies. To this end, important intermolecular interactions are

identified and individually parameterized to yield a highly accurate representation

of the potential energy landscape. Polarization, one such interaction found to play a

significant role in H 2 sorption, is included explicitly for the first time in simulations

of metal-organic frameworks. Permanent electrostatics are usually accounted for by

means of an approximate fit to model compounds. The application of ...


Investigation Of Buildup Dose For Therapeutic Intensity Modulated Photon Beams In Radiation Therapy, Khosrow Javedan 2010 University of South Florida

Investigation Of Buildup Dose For Therapeutic Intensity Modulated Photon Beams In Radiation Therapy, Khosrow Javedan

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Buildup dose of Mega Voltage (MV) photon beams can be a limiting factor in intensitymodulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatments. Excessive doses can cause patient discomfort and treatment interruptions, while underdosing may lead to local failure.

Many factors which contribute to buildup dose, including the photon beam energy spectrum, scattered or contaminant radiation and their angular distribution, are not modeled well in commercial treatment planning systems. The accurate Monte Carlo method was employed in the studies to estimate the doses.

Buildup dose of 6MV photon beams was investigated for three fundamentally different IMRT modalities: between Helical TomoTherapy and traditional opposed tangential ...
