Reproductive Biology Of The Rat Lungworm Angiostrongylus Cantonensis (Metastrongyloidea: Angiostrongylidae), Grace Spatafora Harris Nov 1982

Reproductive Biology Of The Rat Lungworm Angiostrongylus Cantonensis (Metastrongyloidea: Angiostrongylidae), Grace Spatafora Harris

Master's Theses

Twenty rats (Rattus norvegicus) received infective inocula of 5, 10, 20, and 40 third-stage larvae of Angiostrongylus cantonensis. The effects of varying doses of larvae on prepatent period larval production, worm establishment, worm size, and fertility were studied. The aquatic gastropod Biomphalaria glabratta was the experimental intermediate host.

The duration of the prepatent period varied from 37 to 45 days. The shortest prepatent period was observed in animals that received the highest infective inoculum. The prepatent period showed a significant inverse relationship with increasing inoculum size. Larval production increased logarithmically, followed by a plateau phase. The number of larvae per ...

Isolation And Characterization Of The Serum Ferroxidase Inhibitor, Melissa Page Calisch Sep 1982

Isolation And Characterization Of The Serum Ferroxidase Inhibitor, Melissa Page Calisch

Master's Theses

strong evidence suggests that the serum ferroxidases (ceruloplasmin andferroxidase II) promote the formation of Fe-III transferrin and thereby stimulate the turnover of iron from tissue stores. Ceruloplasmin is the major ferroxidase in human serum; whereas, ferroxidase II accotmts for an increased proportion of the activity in less highly developed animals. A large fold increase in total ferroxidase II activity was observed when both human and rabbit sera were subjected to gel-filtration on sephadex G-200. This indicated that whole serum might contain a potent inhibitor of ferroxidase II. Such an inhibitor has been isolated and purified to homogeneity by a combination ...


Capital Punishment : Public Opinion And Abolition In Great Britain During The Twentieth Century, Carol A. Ransone Aug 1982

Capital Punishment : Public Opinion And Abolition In Great Britain During The Twentieth Century, Carol A. Ransone

Master's Theses

Some form of capital punishment has been practiced for as long as there has been recorded history. Early laws were generally harsh and failed to consider the impact of crime on society. In 621 B.C. the Code of Dracon recorded the laws observed in Athens. The Code of Dracon revealed that almost all offences were punishable by death. Two centuries later a more humanitarian attitude was expressed in Greece. Plato believed in the segregation and reform of the criminal rather than his execution.

In England the death penalty for felony convictions was traced to the reign of Henry I ...


Organ Chorale Forms Of The Baroque Era, Suzanne A. Utley Aug 1982

Organ Chorale Forms Of The Baroque Era, Suzanne A. Utley

Honors Theses

The development of protestant chorales reflected the new goals which the reformation brought to the church service. Martin Luther, a primary leader of the Protestant Reformation, recognized that that goal of the service was to make his revelation of faith understandable to the people of Germany. The church service now became more than a sacramental act of obedience; it was a time for people to willingly proclaim the word of God. Through the singing of the chorale, the congregation took an active part in proclaiming the new faith found in the Reformation.

These sacred songs, composed by Luther and his ...


Husa's Al Fresco: An Amazing Coherence, Stewart Blackwell White Aug 1982

Husa's Al Fresco: An Amazing Coherence, Stewart Blackwell White

Honors Theses

To date, no scholarly articles have been published concerning Karel Husa's Al Fresco for concert band (1975). This thesis will demonstrate how Husa has achieved coherence by strongly binding his structural and motivic material. His foundation for this binding are the intervals of the second and the third.


An Electrophoretic Comparison Of Gene Loci In Etheostoma Nigrum And Etheostoma Olmstedi From The James River Drainage, Virginia, Randall Keith Falls Aug 1982

An Electrophoretic Comparison Of Gene Loci In Etheostoma Nigrum And Etheostoma Olmstedi From The James River Drainage, Virginia, Randall Keith Falls

Master's Theses

As many as five different populations of Etheostoma nigrum and Etheostoma olmstedi have been identified in the James River drainage, Virginia. Genetic variation of these populations was analyzed with starch gel electrophoresis and revealed only three distinct populations. Nine loci encoding five enzyme systems and two loci encoding muscle proteins were examined in tissue homogenates. All populations were monomorphic with the exception of the esterase-3 (Est-3), phosphoglucomutase (Pgm-1) and phosphoglucose isomerase (Pgi) loci. Two alleles of Est-3 exhibited activity in the homozygous and heterozygous conditions. Pgm-1 occurred as two alleles with a high degree of heterozygosity (46% for E. nigrum ...


Some Genres Of Post-Hegelian Philosophy, Gary Shapiro Jul 1982

Some Genres Of Post-Hegelian Philosophy, Gary Shapiro

Philosophy Faculty Publications

There are a number of important texts, sometimes treated as philosophical and sometimes as literary works, which do not usually find an appropriate audience. Paradigms of what I have in mind are: Kierkegaard's pseudonymous writings, almost all of Nietzsche, Marx's narratives of capital and class-struggle, Sartre's complex series of fictions, plays, treatises, critical performances and autobiography, and Heidegger's hypnotic meditations and textual exegeses. Responses by philosophers, especially Anglo-American ones, seldom take account of the specific literary forms of these works or of their authors’ very self-conscious concern with the problems and strategies of writing. It is ...


The Effects Of Osmotic Stress On Sodium, Potassium, And Chloride Metabolism In The Mongolian Gerbil, Meriones Unguiculatus, Mark William Hagood May 1982

The Effects Of Osmotic Stress On Sodium, Potassium, And Chloride Metabolism In The Mongolian Gerbil, Meriones Unguiculatus, Mark William Hagood

Master's Theses

The effects of osmotic stress on sodium, potassium, and chloride metabolism and the physiological mechanisms governing these ions were studied in the Mongolian gerbil, Meriones unguiculatus. Animals were subjected to dietary regimens ranging from sodium-free to high-sodium diets for sixty days. Results indicate the gerbils were not physiologically stressed by the imposed diets. Apparently the animals regulate ion metabolism via intrarenal mechanisms and pituitary antidiuretic hormone while behavior and adrenal cortical activity are insignificant.


Nietzsche Contra Renan, Gary Shapiro May 1982

Nietzsche Contra Renan, Gary Shapiro

Philosophy Faculty Publications

I mean by the title of this essay to allude to Nietzsche Contra Wagner and thereby to suggest the use which Nietzsche made of Renan in formulating some of his most distinctive thoughts. More specifically I suggest that Nietzsche's later view of history, especially as expressed in The Genealogy of Morals and The Antichrist, is a critique and parody of Renan's History of the Origins of Christianity. (I speak deliberately of Nietzsche's "view of history" rather than his "philosophy of history" because the latter phrase contains too many associations which Nietzsche's view rejects.) What is at ...


Meredith's Women In Time : Diana Merion And Clara Middleton, Dana Sims Brewer Apr 1982

Meredith's Women In Time : Diana Merion And Clara Middleton, Dana Sims Brewer

Master's Theses

In The Egoist and Diana of the Crossways, George Meredith joins the ranks of Mary Wollstonecraft and John Stuart Mill in a slowly evolving cultural crusade to gain self respect, dignity, and independence for Victorian women.


Concept Formation And Development In The Congenitally Blind Child, Kimberly J. Franco Apr 1982

Concept Formation And Development In The Congenitally Blind Child, Kimberly J. Franco

Honors Theses

T.D. Cutsforth once stated that "no single mental activity of the congenitally blind child is not distorted by the absence of sight." Blindness permeates the intellectual functioning of language, thought, comprehension and conceptualization. Ultimately, the child lacking vision will both understand and respond to the world in a manner unlike that of a sighted child. This incongruous interaction breeds frustration since the blind are a minority in a world which concentrates on the characteristics, needs, behaviors, and accomplishments of sighted individuals. Lacking the visual modality, the blind rely on the information about the objective world which they receive from ...


Personality And Behavioral Characteristics Important To The Coach/Athlete Relationship, Michael A. Zacharias Apr 1982

Personality And Behavioral Characteristics Important To The Coach/Athlete Relationship, Michael A. Zacharias

Honors Theses

Research in the area of sport psychology has grown tremendously over the past twenty years. One area, in particular, that has been researched a great deal is the idea of the typical athletic personality. (Fletcher and Dowell, 1971; Foster, 1977; Morgan and Johnson, 1978; and Morris, Vaccaro and Clarke, 1979 are examples.) Does the personality of the athlete differ from that of the non-athlete? Of particular concern are the areas of personality dealing with locus control and self-esteem. Locus of control is distributed along the internal/external dimension. Internal control was defined by Rotter, Livenant and Seeman (1962) as the ...

An Overview Of Virginia Satir's Method Of Family Therapy And An Evaluation As To Its Use In The Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Field, Katherine A. Startzman Apr 1982

An Overview Of Virginia Satir's Method Of Family Therapy And An Evaluation As To Its Use In The Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Field, Katherine A. Startzman

Honors Theses

The family, mistakenly perceived as an inert system in our culture, is in reality a dynamic and constantly evolving unit both in structure and function. More quickly than ever before, the roles family members play, values, and beliefs are changing. (1975, p. 18) Since the Industrial Revolution, there has been a move from an agrarian to an urban society along with rapid economic and social change which has had a major impact on all institutions. New values in family living have emerged. The nuclear family was considered ideal. The institutional family of rural society, with its subordination of the wife ...


The French Revolution : A Comparison Of The Attitudes Of Edmund Burke And Thomas Paine, Christine R. Chaires Apr 1982

The French Revolution : A Comparison Of The Attitudes Of Edmund Burke And Thomas Paine, Christine R. Chaires

Honors Theses

By 1789, when the French people were just becoming absorbed in revolutionary activity, both the United States and Britain already enjoyed relatively stable political systems which asserted fundamental rights of each individual and established a protection of these rights against moral and political infringement. To insure the perpetuation of these 'inalienable' rights, revolutionary Americans fought violently to break the oppressive bonds of a tyrannical monarch. The English, in 1688, more conservatively chose to build upon their existing modes of government. Because the French Revolution sought to abolish many principles on which the British government rested, it would seem logical for ...


University Of Richmond Bulletin: Catalog Of The T.C. Williams School Of Law For 1982-1984, University Of Richmond Mar 1982

University Of Richmond Bulletin: Catalog Of The T.C. Williams School Of Law For 1982-1984, University Of Richmond

Law School Catalogues

History:

The Law School was established as a department of Richmond College in 1870. In 1890 the family of the late T. C . Williams, who had been a devoted and valued Trustee, donated $25,000 as the nucleus of an endowment for the Law School. In recognition of this gift, the name of the School was changed to The T. C . Williams School of Law. At various times the School has received further generous gifts from members of the family of Mr. Williams. A substantial gift came through a bequest from Mr. T. C. Williams, Jr. who, like his father ...


Foreign Migratory Divorces: A Reappraisal, Peter N. Swisher Jan 1982

Foreign Migratory Divorces: A Reappraisal, Peter N. Swisher

Law Faculty Publications

The purpose of this Article is to review and reappraise the important legal principles involved in foreign country migratory divorces; to discuss the various public policy rationales behind them; and to suggest possible remedies to alleviate much of this ambiguity and confusion.

In undertaking this evaluation, the author is mindful of dual responsibilities-that divorce law in this area should be predictable and uniform in order to maintain the authority of legal precedent; but at the same time it must attempt to approximate, as closely as possible, the clearly demonstrated needs of society.


Of Public Funds And Public Participation: Resolving The Issue Of Agency Authority To Reimburse Public Participants In Administrative Proceedings, Carl W. Tobias Jan 1982

Of Public Funds And Public Participation: Resolving The Issue Of Agency Authority To Reimburse Public Participants In Administrative Proceedings, Carl W. Tobias

Law Faculty Publications

A number of federal agencies have recently relied upon implied power to reimburse expenses incurred by public participants in administrative proceedings. When the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) attempted to exercise this authority, their efforts were challenged by parties who, relying on a purportedly controlling decision of the Second Circuit, contended that participant funding was an impermissible exercise of administrative power. The USDA initiative was upheld in district court, but the FDA program was invalidated by a divided Fourth Circuit panel.

The dispute over agency reimbursement has not been confined to the ...


Equity And The Constitution: The Supreme Court, Equitable Relief, And Public Policy, Gary L. Mcdowell Jan 1982

Equity And The Constitution: The Supreme Court, Equitable Relief, And Public Policy, Gary L. Mcdowell

Law Faculty Publications

In the process of this transformation of the idea of juridical equity, there has been a substantial loss of judicial appreciation for the great tradition of equity jurisprudence. The Court, in using its "historic equitable remedial powers'' to impose its politics on society, is often forced to ignore or deny the great tradition of equitable principles and precedents, which had always been viewed as the inherent source of restraint in equitable dispensations.


Fiduciary's Investment Duty - The Peril Of The Prudent Man Rule, J. Rodney Johnson Jan 1982

Fiduciary's Investment Duty - The Peril Of The Prudent Man Rule, J. Rodney Johnson

Law Faculty Publications

The purpose of this article is ( 1) to report on the recent decision in Hoffman v. First Virginia Bank, 1 (2) to identify the several problems this decision has created for the public and for the bar, (3) to propose a statutory solution to these problems, and (4) to suggest an interim approach to these problems that drafters of wills and trusts might take while awaiting the passage of an appropriate statute.


Legal Education In Virginia 1779-1979: A Biographical Approach, William Hamilton Bryson Jan 1982

Legal Education In Virginia 1779-1979: A Biographical Approach, William Hamilton Bryson

Law Faculty Publications

This work includes sketches of all deceased law teachers in Virginia from George Wythe, who first started teaching law in 1779, to those who died before the beginning of 1979, the bicentennial of Wythe's professorship. Those still living are thus excluded. Included, however, are all those who were in charge of a law course. The range of those included in this book thus covers not only those teachers who, like Wythe, taught alone the entire law curriculum of their schools but also those part-time teachers of the modern period who taught a single course for a single academic term ...


The Court Of Exchequer Comes Of Age, William Hamilton Bryson Jan 1982

The Court Of Exchequer Comes Of Age, William Hamilton Bryson

Law Faculty Publications

The Exchequer was well established as a court of law in the thirteenth century. For the next three hundred years, the Exchequer court seems to have carried out its duties without much change in function or status. At the beginning of the sixteenth century, the judicial business of the Exchequer amounted to about 200 cases per year as compared with about 2500 in the court of King's Bench and 10,000 in the Common Pleas. However, during the middle period of the reign of Henry VIII, the first signs of growth since the thirteenth century appeared. This expansion of ...


Debtors And Creditors: Cases And Materials, David G. Epstein Jan 1982

Debtors And Creditors: Cases And Materials, David G. Epstein

Law Faculty Publications

The focus of this course is on the breakdown of the debtor-creditor relationship. What are the rights of a creditor when the debtor is unwilling to pay? What remedies are available to the debtor who is unable to pay his or her debts? What are the remedies of a creditor who sees the debtor's meager assets being pursued by other, more active creditors? In other words, this course will wrestle with questions such as (1) What can David Alan Coe do if the Grand Funk Railroad does not pay him the $300,000 awarded by the court? (2) What ...


Virginia Law Affecting Churches - Restated, J. Rodney Johnson Jan 1982

Virginia Law Affecting Churches - Restated, J. Rodney Johnson

Law Faculty Publications

Twenty-five years ago, the late William T. Muse, then Dean of the University of Richmond School of Law, observed that although there was considerable law in Virginia relating to churches this law was widely scattered throughout the statutes and the cases. To remedy this state of affairs, Dean Muse wrote a concise but complete summary of these laws. In the quarter-century that has elapsed since Dean Muse's article was published, Virginia has adopted a new constitution, many church-related statutes have been enacted and a number of church-related cases have been decided, some of which have refined established principles and ...


Wills, Trusts, And Estates, Twenty-Sixth Annual Survey Of Developments In Virginia Law, J. Rodney Johnson Jan 1982

Wills, Trusts, And Estates, Twenty-Sixth Annual Survey Of Developments In Virginia Law, J. Rodney Johnson

Law Faculty Publications

The Virginia General Assembly continued its increased legislative activity in the area of wills, trusts, and estates during the past year by passing three major acts: Exempt Property and Allowances; Acts Barring Property Rights; and the Virginia Small Estate Act. In addition to these major bills, seven additional acts enacted by the General Assembly and four cases decided by the Supreme Court of Virginia involved issues important to both the general practitioner and the specialist in wills and trusts. This article reviews these legislative and judicial developments, with emphasis on the three most important legislative enactments.


Women And Islam, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri Jan 1982

Women And Islam, Azizah Y. Al-Hibri

Law Faculty Publications

The interest of the Western World in Islam has been heightened recently by the political developments in the Middle East. Not only do these developments affect the economies of the Western World and the daily lives of its population, they also exhibit an unprecedented return to religious Muslim ideology.

In particular, Western women find the massive return of Muslim women to the veil and to religious ideology incomprehensible. After all, the stereotypical views of Islam in the West present it as especially oppressive towards women, the harem being only one shocking example of that oppression.

In this issue a serious ...

The Perfect Tender Rule - An "Acceptable" Interpretation, David Frisch Jan 1982

The Perfect Tender Rule - An "Acceptable" Interpretation, David Frisch

Law Faculty Publications

The focus of this article will be on the inherent conflict between the buyer's right to reject and the seller's right to cure. We will first review both the scholarly commentary addressing the issue and the judicial interpretations of the rejection-cure conflict. We will then propose a resolution to the conflict, or an acceptable interpretation, which serves to promote the expressed purposes and policies of the Uniform Commercial Code.


Immanuel Kant And The Development Of Modern Psychology, David E. Leary Jan 1982

Immanuel Kant And The Development Of Modern Psychology, David E. Leary

Psychology Faculty Publications

Few thinkers in the history of Western civilization have had as broad and lasting an impact as Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). This "Sage of Konigsberg" spent his entire life within the confines of East Prussia, but his thoughts traveled freely across Europe and, in time, to America, where their effects are still apparent. An untold number of analyses and commentaries have established Kant as a preeminent epistemologist, philosopher of science, moral philosopher, aesthetician, and metaphysician. He is even recognized as a natural historian and cosmologist: the author of the so-called Kant-Laplace hypothesis regarding the origin of the universe. He is less ...
