1 Davis, Ryan"A torrent of words": colonial printers and the public, 1765-1775Although printers had long been important in colonial society and politics, it was not until 1765 that they fully realized their potential in shaping colonial attitudes and behavior. With Parliament's institution of the Stamp Act, an outraged public insisted that newspaper publishers assume a more a...Printing - Social aspects - United States - History - 18th century2012-05
2 Marcinek, Michael36 frames: A self portraitThere is no doubt that we live in a highly mediated culture, more and more images are readily available to us. We view them instantaneously as events are unfolding on our computers, tablets, cellphones, as well as in newspapers and on television. We are constantly barraged and influenced by images f...Photography; Self-portraits2012-05
3 German, MassiellA genetic analysis of VSX2 function in the mouse eyeVsx2 is a homeodomain-containing transcription factor essential for maintenance of neuroretinal identity and neurogenesis. Vsx2 is believed to function via mechanisms that are strictly cell-intrinsic. However, recent research reveals evidence for involvement of Vsx2-mediated cell non-autonomous mech...Neurogenesis - physiology2012-05
4 Craner, Bethlyn "Buffy" SageA nation of inequality: The effects of inequality on health, crime and economic achievementIncome inequality is on the rise, growing rapidly since the mid 1970's in the United States of America (Weeks 2007). This study will investigate the effects an increasing gap between the affluent and impoverished has on critical factors of social welfare. A meta-assessment will be performed combinin...Income inequality - United States2012-05
5 Shapiro, DarienActivation of transient receptor potential ankyrin-1 by wood smoke particulate materialExposure to wood smoke particulate matter (WSPM) has been linked to exacerbation of pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma, development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and premature deaths.

6 Loftus, Patrick D.Agonist binding of herg K+ channels inhibits epithelial cell extrusion but not apoptosis in MDCK monolayers; providing possibilities to cancer metastasis regulationMetastasis is commonly referred to as cancerous cell movement from an original site to one or more sites elsewhere in the body. When these moving cancerous cells are malignant, an individual's chance of survival is decreased. In order for epithelial cells to move they are detached from the epitheliu...Biomedical Engineering2012-01
7 Brandt, Ellissa KathrynAssessment of bilateral muscle function symmetry in female alpine skiersA recent theory for the high occurrence of ACL injuries in female athletes is the presence of asymmetric leg muscle function. Unfortunately, information relative to the bilateral muscle function for the legs of female alpine skiers is lacking. Therefore the primary aim of this project is to examine ...Anterior Cruciate Ligament - injuries; Skiers, Female; Single leg counter movement jump - Research; Single leg time to stabilization - Research2012-05

S...Escherichia coli; serogroups2012-05
9 Peterson, Joseph RyanDeflagration and detonation modeling of heterogeneous condensed phase explosivesA modeling approach to the deflagration and detonation phenomena is employed to study a variety of explosive scenarios. An engineering model for macroscale reaction of energetic materials over the wide range of explosive reaction from deflagration to detonation is developed based upon solid foundati...Deflagration phenomena; Detonation phenomena; mesoscale model2012-05
10 Sanders, SaraDevelopment of a novel, coumarin-europium sensor for reactive oxidizing speciesThe synthetic framework has been developed for two fluorescent probes of Reactive Oxidizing Species (RoxS) based on a coumarin-europium fluorescence pair. The coumarin moiety's selectivity for hydrogen peroxide coupled with 620 nm shifted emission of the europium will make these novel sensors biolog...Reactive Oxygen Species - analysis2012-05
11 Sibbernsen, ColinDigital activism: Addressing social movements in the digital ageTechnological progression in the area of information and communication technology allows for expansion of prior social movement theorizing.

12 Kim, Bum JunDoes ceramide contribute to vascular dysfunction in mice with type 1 diabetes?Approximately 2 million individuals have type 1 diabetes (T1D) in the United States. Cardiovascular disease is 2-4-fold more prevalent in these patients but the mechanism(s) is unclear. Recently, we showed that the sphingolipid ceramide contributes to arterial dysfunction and hypertension in mice wi...Ceramide - Research; Type 1 Diabetes; Mice as laboratory animals2012-05
13 Gordon, Oakley BenedictElecting representative representatives: a case for modified single transferable voting in American legislative electionsAmerican government is founded upon the principle that its rulers should represent and be elected by its citizenry. To this end, America and its states elect large deliberative bodies charged with representing the people within their jurisdictions. The architects of federal and state governments, ho...American government; Voting - United States2012-05
14 Fan, HuijunExamination of Y-Deterium isotope effects for the solvolysis of model isoprenoid compoundsModel isoprenoid compounds can undergo two distinct pathways, dissociative or associative nucleophilic substitution depending on the conditions used. The dissociative pathway consists of two steps, involving a carbocation intermediate where the formation of that carbocation is rate determining. The ...Isopentenoids; Solvolysis; Deuterium - Isotopes2012-05
15 Choi, Andrew YoungExamining off-task behaviors as regulatory mediators of long-term interest and performance onlineLearning via the Internet requires greater reliance on self-regulation (Artino & Stephens, 2009). Online students have easier access to both interesting related materials (i.e.,lesson-related videos) and unrelated materials (i.e., social media). Initial results from the Regulation of Motivation and ...Internet literacy - Study and teaching; Regulation of Motivation and Performance Online (RMAPO)2012-05
16 Johnston, Jessica FaithFrom nanoscience to astrophysics: using high-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy of carbonaceous chondrites to understand planet formationIn the field of astrophysics, there currently exists an outstanding gap of knowledge in understanding planet formation dynamics. At the formation scale ranging from millimeters to meters, astrophysicists debate as to how solar nebulae form larger masses-planets and other kilometer-sized bodies-from ...Physics & Astronomy2012-05
17 Parker, DwightFrom the margins to the middle: a patient-centered approach to primary care for refugees in UtahIn a country where even English-speaking minorities are often at a disadvantage, refugees' circumstances - especially as a result of social instability, language and cultural differences, level of education, and income - can render the American health care system frightening, inaccessible, incompreh...Immigrants - United States; Health care - United States2012-05
