DOMINANT GROUP ETHNIC IDENTITY IN THE UNITED STATES: The Role of "Hidden" Ethnicity in Intergroup Relations

This article explores several issues pertaining to the nature of dominant group ethnicity in the United States. Dominant group ethnic identity tends to be less visible and less salient as a result of dominant status. This "hidden" ethnicity has resulted...

Introduction: the site The remains of woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius Blum.) and woolly rhinoceros (Coelodonta antiquitatis Blum.) at the site of La Cotte de Saint-Brelade, Jersey, C.I., are unique in western Europe. It is the contention of the...

What is the γγ resonance at 750 GeV

Run 2 LHC data show hints of a new resonance in the diphoton distribution at an invariant mass of 750 GeV. We analyse the data in terms of a new boson, extracting information on its properties and exploring theoretical interpretations. Scenarios covered...

A Review of Physician Cost-Containment Strategies for Laboratory Testing

Although there are large-scale forces that influence the economic behavior of the health care delivery system, it is the physician who has primary authority to make decisions about the use of resources. Consequently, when considering alternative options...

A Complete Minimal Surface in R 3 Between two Parallel Planes

E. Calabi has asked if it is possible to have a complete minimal surface in RX entirely contained in a half-space. We answer his question in the affirmative. In fact, we prove considerably more, namely, we show how to produce complete minimal surfaces...

Apoptotic Rate in Peripheral T-Cell Lymphomas A Study Using a Tissue Microarray With Validation on Full Tissue Sections

Peripheral T-cell lymphomas (PTCLs) are a heterogeneous group of non-Hodgkin lymphomas with a wide spectrum of clinicopathologic features, and apoptosis mechanisms may have a role in lymphomagenesis. We assessed apoptotic rate (AR) in 112 PTCLs using...

THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF TRADE: INSTITUTIONS OF PROTECTION

D omestic support for a liberal commercial policy in the U.S. rests on a commonly accepted set of rules and norms. These rules and norms, best characterized as a defense of free and fair trade, arise from two different traditions. The first originated...

Skin Color, Status, and Mate Selection'

Data from a sample of 350 Negro married couples in Washington, D.C., are analyzed to examine the changing relationship between status attributes, mate selection, and skin color, by comparison of duration-of-marriage cohorts. We find that the traditional...

Pricing Decisions of the Newspaper Monopolist

In nearly every city in the United States there is only one daily newspaper of general interest. Given the prevalence of monopoly,' it seems anomalous that newspapers are typically sold well below cost. Compaine [5, 19], for example, reports that sales...

THE POLITICS OF FORGETTING: MIGRATION, KINSHIP AND MEMORY ON THE PERIPHERY OF THE SOUTHEAST ASIAN STATE

A Stochastic Model for Censored-Survival Data in the Presence of an Auxiliary Variable

In clinical trials and other investigations of survival time, information is often available on a time-dependent event other than survival. An example of such an auxiliary event in cancer studies is objective progression of disease. While some patients...

Isoperimetric and isodiametric functions of groups

This is the first of two papers devoted to connections between asymptotic functions of groups and computational complexity. In particular, we show how to construct a finitely presented group with NP-complete word problem. One of the main results of this...

Employment Constraints and the Labor Supply of Married Women A Reexamination of the Added Worker Effect

Little evidence is found to support the "conventional" notion of the added worker effect. The husband's unemployment has no measurable impact on the wife's actual hours of work. However, the constraint on his ability to supply hours of work to the labor...

Effect of Patient Age on Duration of Medical Encounters With Physicians

The authors analyzed the USC/DRME Practice Study data to determine if the characteristics of physician patient encounters change with patient age. The only significant change observed was a decline in encounter time for patients 65 years of age and older...

Abundance and Distribution of Termites (Isoptera) in a Riparian Forest in the Southern Guinea Savanna Vegetation Zone of Nigeria

Thirty-three species of termites were found in a riparian forest in the Southern Guinea savanna zone of Nigeria. Their total abundance and biomass was 2646 m-2 and 6.90 g m-2, respectively. The dominant trophic group was the soil-feeders (2369 m-2 and...

MORPHOLOGY AND PHYTOGEOGRAPHY: THE CLASSICAL APPROACH TO TEIE STUDY OF DISJUNCTIONS

Disjunctions are evident in the distribution of almost every species of plant, for it is obvious that no species is composed of completely continuous populations. Discontinuities, however, range from small to very large. Although formerly widely distributed,...

Purism vs. compromise in language revitalization and language revival

Conservative attitudes toward loanwords and toward change in grammar often hamper efforts to revitalize endangered languages (Tiwi, Australia); and incompatible conservatisms can separate educated revitalizers, interested in historicity, from remaining...

Peptides as putative excitatory neurotransmitters: carnosine, enkephalin, substance P and TRH

A number of in vitro preparations of the central nervous system have been used to characterize with intracellular recording the cellular actions of four neuropeptides. Carnosine, the putative excitatory neurotransmitter of olfactory nerves, was found...

The selection of class intervals

The selection of class intervals, which can strongly affect the visual impression given by a map, is currently a totally anarchic branch of cartography. While practising cartographers have barely accustomed themselves to the routine techniques of class...

Plant formations adapted to dry climates extend in South America from tropical to temperate latitudes and from sea level to the highest mountain ranges, to constitute a significant proportion of the vegetation in this continent. Thirteen different dry...

CONFIRMATORY TETRAD ANALYSIS

A "tetrad" refers to the difference in the products of certain covariances (or correlations) among four random variables. A structural equation model often implies that some tetrads should be zero. These "vanishing tetrads" provide a means to test structural...

THE GEOARCHAEOLOGY OF PLACE: THE EFFECT OF GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES ON THE PRESERVATION AND INTERPRETATION OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL RECORD

Because the landscape on which prehistoric people lived was dynamic and continually changed, the record of prehistoric activities across the landscape has been differentially preserved and destroyed. Insightful reconstructions of human organi- zational...

On the Measurement of Intra-Industry Trade: Some Further Thoughts

the empirical and the theoretical literature on intra-industry trade (IIT) has developed rapidly during the last fifteen years. IIT occurs when countries simultaneously export and import goods produced by the same industries. This phenomenon is not envisaged...

Psychological Well-Being in the Postparental Stage: Some Evidence From National Surveys*

Spatial Reusability-Aware Routing in Multi-Hop Wireless Networks

In the problem of routing in multi-hop wireless networks, to achieve high end-to-end throughput, it is crucial to find the “best” path from the source node to the destination node. Although a large number of routing protocols have been proposed to...

Effects of the Minimum Wage on Employment Dynamics

The voluminous literature on minimum wages offers little consensus on the extent to which a wage floor impacts employment. We argue that the minimum wage will impact employment over time, through changes in growth rather than an immediate drop in relative...

The Health Belief Model and Compliance with Education Given at a Class in Breast Self-Examination

The power of the Health Belief Model (HBM) to explain decisions to adopt preventive health behavior has been mainly supported by empirical studies in which data on beliefs and behavior were collected at the same time. Studies in which information on beliefs...

On the Limit of a Supercritical Branching Process
