The Diagnosis And Treatment Of Insulin-Dependent And Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus In The Dog And The Cat, Claudia Kirk, M Wallace Nov 1990

The Diagnosis And Treatment Of Insulin-Dependent And Non-Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus In The Dog And The Cat, Claudia Kirk, M Wallace

Claudia A Kirk

Diabetes mellitus is often a frustrating disorder to treat. Many animals appear resistant to the effects of insulin, while others, especially cats, are very sensitive to its effects and therefore prone to bouts of hypoglycemia. Because of difficulties in glucose regulation, many veterinarians have referred to the treatment of diabetes mellitus as an art rather than a science. Fear of over-regulation with resultant hypoglycemia has led to the practice of "loose control" (wide fluctuations of glucose are allowed to occur throughout the day). Fortunately, long-term side effects of poor glycemic control seen in people (eg, retinal, glomerular, vascular, and nerve ...

Kinematic Considerations Of Elite Alpine Slalom Ski Racers, David Andrew Goodwin Aug 1990

Kinematic Considerations Of Elite Alpine Slalom Ski Racers, David Andrew Goodwin

Master's Theses

This study described specific kinematic parameters associated with success on the international level in alpine slalom ski racing. Sixteen male athletes representing twelve countries comprised the subject pool. Subject selection was based on finish position in the men's special slalom at the 1989 World Alpine Ski Championships in Vail, Colorado. Cinematographical records were analyzed by a method known as direct linear transformation.

The findings of the study indicated that: (a) hip and knee joint angles of the turning leg must approximate 1.80 to 1.83 radians and 1.82 to 2.21 radians, respectively, for efficiency in this ...

Science: The End Of The Frontier, Leon M. Lederman Jan 1990

Science: The End Of The Frontier, Leon M. Lederman

University of Wyoming National Park Service Research Center Annual Report

Once upon a time American science sheltered an Einstein, went to the moon, and gave to the world the laser, the electronic computer, nylon, television, the cure for polio, and observations of our planet's location in an expanding universe. Today we are in the process, albeit unwittingly, of abandoning this leadership role. It is up to the President, the Congress, and the American people to decide whether this is really the road we want this country to travel.

Climate Trends In Iowa, Richard E. Carlson Jan 1990

Climate Trends In Iowa, Richard E. Carlson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Long-term trends for various weather elements are presented for the period 1900-1988. Summer and winter season, and annual air temperature patterns are statistically weak because of large inrerannual variability, but trends are evident. There was a general warming from 1900 until the 40's, with a leveling or slight cooling following. Since the mid-70's, a warming trend seems to be taking place, but this cannot be confirmed. Spring season air temperatures showed no trend except that the most recent 4 years (1985-1988) were decidedly warmer than normal. Winter season air temperatures showed a change in trend in the 30 ...


Atmospheric Response To 1988 Drought Conditions And Future Climate Implications, Michael D. Mccorcle Jan 1990

Atmospheric Response To 1988 Drought Conditions And Future Climate Implications, Michael D. Mccorcle

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Plentiful precipitation in the central United States is one of the basic components of the successful agricultural industry in the Corn Belt. A combination of moisture, wind, and topographic factors creates an ideal condition for rainfall over most of the region during the late spring and early summer. In 1988, many ingredients necessary for wet weather were absent. The region experienced a drought unequalled since the 1930's. The drought of 1988 demonstrated chat the symptom of drought, namely, dry soils, can exacerbate and even perpetuate drought conditions by decreasing available moisture, altering circulation patterns vital to storm development, and ...


Climate Change And The Potential Impact On The Soil Resource, J. L. Hatfield Jan 1990

Climate Change And The Potential Impact On The Soil Resource, J. L. Hatfield

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Climatic change will lead to changes in the carbon dioxide C02, temperature, and precipitation. There have been many predictions of the effect of climatic change on plant growth but none on the soil parameters or water use. To fully understand the implications on soil management from climate change the expected changes in soil temperature, water use, and water and nutrient use efficiency need quantification.


Impact Of Global Warming And Cooling On Midwestern Agriculture, Louis M. Thompson Jan 1990

Impact Of Global Warming And Cooling On Midwestern Agriculture, Louis M. Thompson

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The global warming since 1980 has been greater than it was during the warming trend from 1880 to 1940. This has caused concern that the very warm years of 1987 and 1988 might have been associated with greenhouse warming. However, the cooling trend from 1940 to 1980 occurred during a rapid buildup in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Although there may have been some greenhouse warming since 1880, the unusual warmth of 1987 and 1988 may have been caused by changes in the temperature of the equatorial Pacific Ocean, and changes in transparency of the atmosphere or ocher phenomena acting ...

Computed Normal Range Of Iowa Statewide July Precipitation, H. C. Vaughan, D. S. Sheets, G. R. White

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Iowa summer rainfall distributions are examined to identify small-scale anomalies. Examination of extremely wet and dry summer months shows that large rain amounts fall mainly in small, cellular areas for both extremely wet and dry months. These configurations result from individual rainfall events. Analysis of the distribution of mean July rainfall across the state reveals significant anomalous wet and dry regions that contrast with the background, east-west rainfall gradient. Because of the skewed nature of summer rainfall distributions, the median value is used to represent a more realistic expected rainfall amount for any given year. Some parts of the stare ...


Radon Measurements In Houses In Eastern And Central Iowa, C. V. Weiffenbach, T. J. Hart Jan 1990

Radon Measurements In Houses In Eastern And Central Iowa, C. V. Weiffenbach, T. J. Hart

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

Radon concentrations in air in main floor areas of 213 houses in Central and Eastern Iowa were measured with alpha track detectors integrating over periods of five months to one year. Forty-two houses in Central Iowa had significantly higher radon concentrations (lognormal distribution with geometric mean 2.1 pCi/L, geometric standard deviation 2.2, and arithmetic mean 2.75 pCi/L) than 171 houses studied in Eastern Iowa (geometric mean 1.6 pCi/L, geometric standard deviation 2.2, arithmetic mean 2.1 pCi/L). Significant differences in radon levels were found among different categories of houses with regard ...

Population Estimates And Geographic Distribution Of The Yellow Mud Turtle (Kinosternon Flavescens) In Iowa, James L. Christiansen, Benny J. Gallaway, John W. Bickham Jan 1990

Population Estimates And Geographic Distribution Of The Yellow Mud Turtle (Kinosternon Flavescens) In Iowa, James L. Christiansen, Benny J. Gallaway, John W. Bickham

Journal of the Iowa Academy of Science: JIAS

The yellow mud turtle (Kinosternon flavescens) is an endangered species in Iowa known from six localities in the stare. The only large population is located on a private preserve on Big Sand Mound in Muscatine and Louisa Countries and is estimated to consist of 2,000 to 3,000 individuals. Following the removal of predators in 1979, density estimates have tripled as estimated by the Sequential Bayes Algorithm of mark-recapture data. Assuming the Big Sand Mound population was nor severely damaged by the drought of 1988, it is judged sufficiently large to serve as a source to enrich certain of ...
