    • Bone mineral content of femur, lumbar vertebrae, and radius in eumenorrheic female athletes

      Lohman, Timothy G.; Westfall, Carola Hammer, 1953- (The University of Arizona., 1988)
      This study compared bone mineral index (BMI, gm/cm²) of the femur, spine, and radius, measured by photon absorptiometry in various groups of eumenorrheic female athletes. The sample included body builders (11), swimmers (13), runners (5 collegiate, 11 recreational), and inactive controls (18) averaging 25 years of age, ranging from 17 to 38 years. Lumbar vertebral BMI for body builders (1.40 gm/cm²) was significantly (p ≤ 0.05) greater than controls (1.25 gm/cm²). The body builders' femoral neck BMI (1.09 gm/cm²) was significantly greater than swimmers (0.97 gm/cm², recreational runners and controls (0.95 gm/cm²). Years of exercise history and calcium consumption were not significant predictors of BMI. Correlation coefficients between fat-free body and all BMI sites were significant and more closely related to bone mineral than other variables (weight, height, weight/height²). Correlation coefficients for proximal and distal radius BMI and femoral and spine BMI were significant, the distal radius having higher association.

    • Boom: Latinos, the Modern Pioneers

      González de Bustamante, Celeste; Lanuza, April; Relly, Jeannine; Duncan, Daniel; Newton, Kim (The University of Arizona., 2019)
      Latino dispersion is changing communities around the United States. Latinos are moving to and living in ‘non-traditional’ places around the country. The demographics of predominantly white, rural cities and states are changing. According to a PEW Research Study, Williams County, North Dakota, led the nation in Latino population growth from 2007 to 2014. For my thesis I visit Williston, the largest city in Williams County, to produce a documentary about the city’s growing Latino population in a post oil boom society. Williston suddenly had a surge in Latinos from 2007 to 2014 because of an oil boom and the increase in jobs that ensued afterwards. According to the US census of North Dakota (Cicha, 2015), as of 2015, every county in the state has a Latino population. Twenty-three percent indicated they were born in-state, sixty-one percent born out of state and sixteen-percent born outside of the country. However, even with the stabilization of the oil boom, a Latino community remains. The objective of my thesis is to investigate this shift in Latino migration and examine the networks that have been built as a result. Through the eyes of several Latinos in Williston, I have produced a documentary detailing their experiences in this city. Other people in the community give their perspectives about what the community is like and what is or isn’t supporting this new Latino population. As Latinos move away from ‘traditional’ places such as Miami and Los Angeles, rural, smaller, Anglo-American dominated communities are seeing an increase in native Spanish speakers that they had not seen before, thus influencing community dynamics. Using ethnographic research and the conceptual framework of moral geography, I will examine how the community perceives this new population.

    • Borderline personality disorder and Jungian psychological types

      Newlon, Betty J.; Davis, Jeffrey Jay, 1955- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      Twenty-one individuals diagnosed as having borderline personality disorder were studied to determine Jungian psychological type. All respondents were recruited through therapists working in the Tucson, Arizona area. Therapists were employed in both private and public mental health care sectors. The respondents were largely female (N = 19) white, and non-married. Due to the large percentage of females, only the female portion of the sample was used for comparison with other, all female populations. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Form F was used to determine psychological type. Respondents showed a higher incidence of introverted and intuitive types when compared to groups representing the general population. Compared to groups representing inpatient psychiatric populations, the study sample showed a larger incidence of intuitive types.
    • Boron and Sulfur Isotopic Fractionation in the Coal Combustion System.

      Allen, Linda Mathilda,1965-; Bassett, Randy L. (The University of Arizona., 1992)
      The boron and sulfur isotopic ratios of four coal samples and corresponding fly ash leachates provide explanations for boron and sulfur incorporation into coal and behavior during combustion. Fractionation processes occur during coal formation and during the combustion of coal as some of the boron and sulfur is concentrated on the ash, and some escapes into the atmosphere as flue gas. Water-soluble boron in coal is extracted using a modified soil technique. Boron is isolated from solution using Amberlite IRA-743 resin and concentrated by methyl borate distillation with no isotopic fractionation observed. The forms of sulfur in coal are extracted sequentially using the lithium aluminum hydride (LAH) method. The isotopic content of samples from a coal-fired power-plant are used to determine if waste water has impacted a shallow aquifer system. No indication of mixing between waste water and ground water was observed.
    • Boron in the irrigation waters and alkaline calcareous soils of Arizona with particular reference to its effects on plants

      Stark, Earl Frederick, 1909-; Smith, H. V. (The University of Arizona., 1942)
      In a partial survey of Arizona waters, surface waters tested were found to be lower than the accepted toxicity level for most crops. Some of the pumped irrigation water analyzed contained excessive amounts of boron; but in most oases the availability of alternate sources permits blending of waters so that the problem is obviated. Analyses bf plant materials show that a correlation exists between the amount of boron in irrigation water and the amount of boron taken up by the plant.. Foliar toxicity symptoms sometimes are evident Studies were conducted which showed that the amount of boron fixed by a soil is a function of soil texture, as well as the boron concentration of the equilibrium solution with which the soil is in contact. When the, equilibrium concentration of the boron in the two phases was plotted, a linear relationship existed in which the slope of the fixation curves for heavy soils contrasted with that for light textured soils. Data are at hand which indicate that boron fixation is a temporary process, pending percolation of boron-free water through the soil, the release of boron being enhanced when the percolating water has a low pH value. In sand cultures of cotton and sunflower plants grown in media containing a range of boron and lime concentrations, the results were interpreted to best advantage by use of the calcium: boron ratio; this fluctuates widely, as does the yield, when boron is limiting in a soil. Calcium carbonate amelioral to some extent the toxic effect of boron in plants.
    • "Bosses Are Really Mean These Days": The Discursive Politics of Representation and Blame in Workplace Bullying

      Croissant, Jennifer; Tracy-Ramirez, Alexandra; Croissant, Jennifer; Milem, Jeffrey; Maccorquodale, Patricia (The University of Arizona., 2010)
      Although the topic of bullying generally leads to discussions of the dynamicsbetween and among children, bullying increasingly involves complex power structuresamong adults in their workplaces. The purpose of this project is to broaden theunderstanding of workplace bullying in the United States through the critical analysis ofpopular media and U.S. legal discourses. The analysis unravels the ways in whichbullying is normalized, individualized, perpetuated and rewarded. It seeks to denaturalizethe phenomenon and situate bullying as a construction that can bedeconstructed and addressed. It interrogates the messages of resistance, agency andblame as productive and disciplinary strategies that permit bullying to operate withdiscursive and material impunity. Legal prohibitions alone will not prove to be thepanacea but, along with reframed discourses, they will help undermine the naturalizationof bullying in the workplace and open new avenues for exploring solutions andalternatives.

    • Botanical gardens : the influence of Islam, arid lands, and water in the Middle East

      Sellers, Catherine Clabby; Havens, W. H.; Deeter, M. T.; Jones, W. D. (The University of Arizona., 1988)
      The concept of the botanical garden can be traced to ancient times. The idea of the 'garden as paradise', the 'garden as orchard' and the 'chahar bagh' are part of the Persian culture, dating to 6000 B.C.. Mesopotamia is the supposed location of Eden, the oldest garden of the world. To determine the design criteria most suitable for a new botanical garden to be located in the Middle Fast, a study is required of: botanical garden history, the religious and cultural aspects of Islam which have formed design-rules for gardens , features common to arid lands, and water as a finite resource. The purpose of this study is to determine criteria for a botanical garden most suitable to the conditions of the Middle East in general, Kuwait in particular, and to identify those criteria in terms of the public benefits of recreation, education, conservation and enhancement of religious experience.

    • Bottles, buildings, and war: Metaphor and racism in contemporary German political discourse

      Alonso, Ana M.; Green, Meredith Anne, 1971- (The University of Arizona., 1995)
      Political discourse in contemporary Germany provides a window into issues of racism, nationality, and the overall question of German identity. The use of metaphor and racist semantic techniques in political speeches and articles addressing issues of increased neo-Nazi activity and changes in immigration policy point to an increasing struggle over the establishment of a common discursive framework within which such questions are discussed. Such a struggle itself points to a deeper crisis of the state and German identity. This paper offers an approach to understanding these struggles by first examining metaphorical conceptions of the nation and state that not only reflect and describe, but actually shape German experience of these phenomena, further impacting conceptions of race and national identity. The active role of racism in creating a common discursive framework and as it informs the process/state project of hegemony is examined. Questions concerning whether the racism detected is "new" and the consequences of establishing a racialized discourse will contribute, finally, to an exploration of possibilities for creating an anti-racist discourse in Germany.
