1 Reyna Rivarola, Alonso Rafael"Aguantamos porque no nos queda de otra" (we hold up because we have no other option): Everyday resistance in the lives of Latina immigrant U.S. hospitality industry workersLatina immigrant workers in the United States are often rendered invisible by mainstream society. These women, especially when fulfilling service occupations, such as hotel housekeeping jobs, are expected to work in silence and in deference to those in "higher" positions of power (e.g. supervisors a...Hospitality industry - Employees - United States; Hispanic American women - Employment2013-06
2 Kemp, RoseA checklist for outstanding teaching of first grade literacyChildren typically learn to read and write early on in their lives. This is a crucial time for literacy education, generally referred to as the development of early literacy. At this time, "...it is such an important goal [to teach reading] that it is impossible to walk into a firstgrade classroom o...Reading (Primary); First grade (Education)2013-05
3 Thompson, Geneva EBA history of interest covergence in University of Utah diversity related policies and programsThis paper will look at the history of interest convergence of the University of Utah Administration hi the implementation of diversity related programs and policies.

4 Sullivan, Steven M.A trace formula for G2An n-dimensional matrix representation of a group G on a vector space V is a homomorphism from G to GL(V). For our purposes, we consider an irreducible representation to be a representation which cannot be decomposed into the direct sum of smaller-dimensional representations. Let H be a subgroup of ...Trace formulas2013-05
5 Oritt, MadeleineAccessibility to HIV/AIDS medications in resource-limited countriesThis research examines the impact of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) on accessibility to HIV/AIDS medications for populations in resource-limited countries.

6 Turner, JoselynAccurate communication : explaining a medical technology to a mass audienceThe purpose of this thesis project is to describe the process I have taken, and that others could follow, to use the written communication tecliniques that I have learned during my undergraduate career to accurately inform a non-medically trained mass audience of a medical technology. Clear communic...Medical technology; Communication and technology2013-05
7 Gonzalez, Juan CarlosAn analysis of Utah's Chicano civil rights movement through S.O.C.I.O. and its involvement in affirmative action programs, 1964-1984Utah's Chicano Civil Rights Movement developed under unique circumstances in comparison to the greater Chicano Civil Rights Movement in the Southwestern States. While Chicanos outside of Utah chose to march, boycott and have sit-ins, those in Utah worked alongside government officials in order to ac...SOCIO; Hispanic Americans - Civil rights - Utah; Chicano movement - Utah - History; Affirmative action programs - Utah2013-05
8 Edwards, Jennifer LynnApplication of a TBHP-mediated Wacker-type oxidation to internal alkenesThe Wacker oxidation allows access to methyl ketones from terminal alkenes. This transformation is important for industrial, synthetic, and medicinal chemists, as carbonyls are present in many natural and pharmaceutical products. With the carbonyl, a wide variety of reactions become available, such ...Wacker-type oxidatioin - Research; TBHP2013-05
9 Pecchia-Bekkum, AnnikaApplications of controlled DNA assembly and disassembly in biosensing and responsive drug deliveryDeoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) provides many exciting functions outside of simply encoding genetic information. Herein, we report two techniques to control the assembly and disassembly of nucleic acids. Within these techniques, DNA is used as a programmable material for biosensing and drug delivery. In...Nucleic acids - Biotechnology2013-08
10 Burga, Carlos AlbertoBinary superlattices of semiconductor nanocrystals : a path towards possible high-temperature superconductivityThis thesis provides a platform to experimentally test Dr. Daniel Mattis' theoretical work on the possible superconductive behavior of nanostructured intrinsic semiconductors1-2. The theoretical work hinged on the nano-scale architecture of semiconductors. Therefore, using various types of semicondu...Semiconductor nanocrystals; Superconductivity; Superlattices as materials2013-05
11 Rose, StevenBiofuel cells for self powered arsenic detectionResearch in the Minteer group has centered on procedures for immobilizing enzymes and organelles on carbon electrodes for use in sensory and fuel cell applications. Similar strategies have been used to prepare a series of electrodes capable of pyruvate oxidation which, in the presence of arsenic, wi...Fuel cells; Arsenic - Detection2013-05
12 Simonsen, KyleBreast cancer knowledge and attitudes among women in ArmeniaBackground: Breast cancer, the most common invasive cancer among women, has high incidence and mortality rates among women in the Republic of Armenia. Advanced stage at detection limits treatment options and contributes to high morbidity and mortality.

13 Thomas, NikitaCellular ultrastructure of C. elegans nervous systemDetermining the ultrastructural organization of the nervous system is a key step in understanding how complex behavior is generated. For a nervous system to function, it must be wired accurately. A complete wiring diagram, referred to as a connectome, can be created by tracing neuronal profiles thro...Caenorhabditis elegans - Nervous system2013-05
14 Millar, ThomasCenter lines, turn lanes and bicycle infrastructure : bikeways in the United States and Salt Lake City's 1700 South corridorContinuous and well-designed bicycle infrastructure plays an essential role in encouraging people to see and use the bicycle as a legitimate form of transportation and not only for recreation. In Salt Lake City, a common roadway striping design end bicycle lanes prematurely, requiring bicyclists to ...Bicycle lanes - Utah - Salt Lake City; Bicycle lanes - United States2013-05
15 Gondolo, AlessandroCharacterization and Synthesis of Rayleigh Damped Elastodynamic NetworksWe consider damped elastodynamic networks where the damping matrix is assumed to be a non-negative linear combination of the stiffness and mass matrices (Rayleigh damping). We give here a characterization of the frequency response of such networks. We also answer the synthesis question for such netw...Damping (Mechanics) - Mathematics2013-05
16 Nicolo, TeraCharacterization of mitochondria-modified electrodesIn order to develop an herbicide sensor, yeast, potato, and bovine heart mitochondria were isolated and immobilized onto Toray paper electrodes. Cyclic voltammetry showed two redox peaks at 186 ± 14 mV vs. SCE and -357 ± 24 mV vs. SCE with an E1/2 of -128 mV. Scan rate studies suggested the proces...Electrodes; Herbicides - Detection2013-05
17 Little, Nancy AnnCharacterizing and mapping l(3)7E103 a gene required for Drosophila dorsal closureDorsal closure in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster is a complex morphogenetic process dependent upon three embryonic tissues: the lateral epidermis, leading edge epidermis, and amnioserosa.
