The lower level of school quality available for blacks relative to whites in the segregated era is frequently cited as a primary cause for the currently observed gap in black-white average wages. The inferior education pro­ vided to black children is argued to have caused lower levels of human capital produc­ tion in black schools than white schools. The gap in black-white wages can be traced to this gap in human capital.

Personal Recollections Of Dr. H. Hugh Dukes, Melvin J. Swenson

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The first time that I heard of Dr. H. Hugh Dukes was in my undergraduate days in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State lTniversity from 1939-43. The 4th edition of The Physiology of Domestic Animals was used in the physiology courses. Little did I know at that time that Dr. Dukes would become a close personal friend of mine, an example to follow in the profession of veterinary medicine, and a wise counselor in veterinary physiology and allied fields.

Business - Not Currently A Veterinary Science, Jim Olberding

Iowa State University Veterinarian

It will be too late on graduation day to suddenly discover that you are a businessman or businesswoman. The vast majority of veteriarians enter the business world as an associate in business. A few continue their education, accept employment with a governmental agency or are employed in industry. Althouth the new graduate will probably not be the business owner, he or she will cenainly represent that business to the public. A few heany souls will thrust out their shingle and do battle in the world of business. It is unfortunate that few, if any, graduates obtaining a DVM or VMD ...

Stress Management Among Corporate Managers: A Study Of The Relationship Among Management Styles, Management Levels, And Coping Behaviors , Harold Snyder Kahler Jr.

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This study determines if a relationship exists among management styles, management levels, and use/nonuse of stress coping behaviors among corporate managers. The three traditional levels of management--lower, middle, upper--were utilized to assure simplicity and consistency. The management styles traditionalist/judicial, troubleshooter/negotiator, catalyst and visionary, which are based on the Myers-Briggs typologies, provided the necessary style classifications. The ten coping behaviors established by Mann (1969) and later refined by Burke and Belcourt (1974) formed the basis of the Coping Behavior Inventory. The socio-demographic variables of sex, age, income level, education level, and seniority were obtained during the survey to ...


Eating Disorders: Assessment Of Psychological, Physiological And Behavioral Characteristics , Jean Kay Lundholm Jan 1987

Eating Disorders: Assessment Of Psychological, Physiological And Behavioral Characteristics , Jean Kay Lundholm

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Three studies examined psychological, physiological, and behavioral characteristics related to disordered-eating patterns. In the first study, psychological characteristics were investigated. Subjects were 265 students and 173 eating-disordered patients diagnosed as anorexic, bulimic or bulimarexic. The Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory (MCMI) was administered, and item differences between the groups investigated by constructing three dummy variables contrasting the groups and correlating the dummy variables with item responses. None of the items significantly differentiated between the bulimics and bulimarexics. Only two items significantly (p <.005) differentiated the anorexics from the bulimics, and anorexics from the bulimarexics. Of the items, 64% significantly (p <.005) differentiated the eating-disordered patients as a group, from the students. In order to determine which items were most discriminating the range of Z scores between the groups were examined and those which differed by at least one standard deviation identified. The content of the items revealed that the eating-disordered females were socially withdrawn and depressed. In the second study, psychological and behavioral differences between weight-classified eating-disordered patients were investigated. The Eating Disorders Instrument (EDI) was administered. Subjects were 196 patients, classified as either overweight or normal weight bulimic, overweight or normal weight bulimarexic, or underweight anorexic. Differences between the groups were investigated by constructing ten dummy variables contrasting the groups, and correlating the scale scores with the dummy variables. Three of the scales significantly (p <.005) differentiated between the contrasted groups: Desire for Thinness, Body Dissatisfaction, and Bulimia. In the third study, physiological, psychological and behavioral characteristics were investigated. Subjects were 99 eating-disordered females diagnosed as anorexic, bulimic, or bulimarexic; 27 psychiatric controls; and 24 medical controls. The Disordered Eating and Weight Control Instrument (DEWCI) was administered. Differences between the groups were investigated by constructing ten dummy variables contrasting the groups, and correlating the scales with the dummy variables. All of the DEWCI scales significantly (p <.005) differentiated between the eating-disordered, psychiatric, and medical patients.

An Analysis Of The Relationships Between Selected Variables And The Adoption And Diffusion Of Computers For Instructional Purposes Among Community College Faculty , Dennis U. Anderson

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

The adoption of computers by faculty for instructional purposes depends on a universe of variables which either facilitate or hinder the change process. This study surveyed 305 community college faculty in order to examine the relationships between the intensity of adoption and perceived faculty barriers to the adoption of computers. The perceived barriers examined were (1) administrative support for educational computing, (2) the institution's economic climate, (3) the complexity of computers, and (4) the attitudes of faculty towards the use of computers. The variables of age and sex (gender) were also examined for relationships to the areas of adoption ...
