    • Dacthal® Herbicide Rate Comparison for Preemergence Weed Control in Onions

      Umeda, K.; Fredman, C.; Oebker, Norman F. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 1995-08)
      DCPA (Dacthal®) herbicide was applied preemergence (PE) to the soil surface after onion planting and no crop injury was observed for rates of 5.3, 7.5, and 10.5 lb. a.i. /A at one of two locations. Dacthal® gave good control of London rocket and cheeseweed (90 -94 %) at one location and marginal control at the second location (79 -85 %). Dacthal® did not exhibit a rate response to control the two weeds common to both locations. The lower rate of Dacthal® did not differ in efficacy compared to higher rates to completely control lambsquarters and nettleleaf goosefoot. All rates of Dacthal® marginally controlled yellow sweetclover and other mustard weeds present. Dacthal® provided adequate weed control to allow onion stand establishment.
    • The Dag Hammarskjold Library (DHL) : Role in Bridging the Information Gap with particular Reference to The Developing Countries

      Mangla, P. B. (2002)
      Opening Excerpt from Presentation: It is most appropriate that the present Symposium is being organised in order to pay tribute to Dag Hammarskjold who dedicated himself to peace in the world, and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Dag Hammarskjold Library, which certainly is a legacy of the late Secretary General. The United Nations Library was given the present name on November 16, 1961 as a Memorial to the late Dag Hammarskjold, UN Secretary General, who was killed in an aircraft crash on September 17, 1961. It certainly was a befitting tribute to a great human being, a poet, philosopher and a mystic. He had all the attributes of a Karamayogi as given in Bhagavad Gita, a well-known Hindu scripture. He had extensive interests as a bibliophile who knew so well both the wisdom and beauty to be found in the printed page. ...

    • Dairy Foods: Providing Essential Nutrients & Promoting Good Health Throughout Life

      Hongu, Nobuko; Tsui, Chiayi; Wise, Jamie M. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2014-11)
      Dairy foods including milk, yogurt, cheese, and fortified soymilk provide nine essential nutrients that both children and adults can enjoy. The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommend consuming 3 cups per day of fat-free (skim), reduced fat (2%), low fat (1%), or equivalent milk products for healthy adults and children 9 years of age and older. We describe healthy ways to incorporate daily foods into the diet. Delicious and easy recipes using skim milk are also included.

    • Damage on Ornamental Landscape Plants Resulting from the January 2007 Freeze in Arizona

      Schuch, Ursula K.; Kelly, Jack J.; Priebe, Steve; Kopec, David M. (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2008-01)
      Severe freezing temperatures during January 2007 caused temporary and permanent damage in several species of ornamental landscape plants. The damage was exacerbated by three consecutive nights of frost and freezing temperatures lasting between 7and 14 hours each day. Observations of frost damage and recovery in Phoenix and Tucson were recorded.
    • Damping Off

      Olsen, Mary W.; Young, Deborah; Plant Pathology (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2011-01)
      Damping off is caused by several different fungi under different environmental conditions. The fungi include Pythium, Rhizoctonia solani, and Thielaviopsis basicola. This article discusses the symptoms, environmental conditions, diseases, prevention and control methods for the damping-off caused by fungi.
    • Dance and Self-Concept: The Effects of Varying Forms of Dance Training on Development of Self-Concept

      Hunt, James E.; Panaligan, Anna Patricia (The University of Arizona., 2013)
      This research looks at dance training and its effects on Self-concept and Self-perception. In is a literature review with proposed research methodology. By analyzing forms of dance training in different dance environments we can determine which methods allow for healthy development of self. This research focuses of the argument regarding dance as a sport and physical activity. Using Symbolic Interaction Theory this research looks at how the specific interactions of the individuals in the differing environments affect their development of self. Since there are many genres of dance, individual interactions in the dance realm can be highly varied which could relate to the development of self. Knowing physical activity does lead to positive self-perception, it is necessary to determine how the different environments can affect the final outcome so that instructors and mentors can develop effective methods of teaching.
    • The Dance of Baseball: An Exploration of Aesthetics

      Latt, Daniel; Young, Veronica Elizabeth (The University of Arizona., 2015)
      The evaluation of sports performance has historically relied on a coach or instructor. The development of motion capture technology has provided a tool for the objective analysis of movement. Consumer motion capture devices (Wii, fitbit, etc.) have become commonplace, however, they are only used to improve performance in a few sports. One barrier to their widespread use is the lack validated performance measures. The goal of this study is to develop a process for creating and validating motion capture measures that can be used to improve movement performance. A pool of prospective movement parameters was generated from suggestions by expert observers and existing literature. Baseball players and dancers of varying ability performed highly stereotyped movements while being simultaneously evaluated by an expert observer and a motion capture system. The parameters were extracted from the motion capture data and the expert observer scored the parameters on a semi-quantitative scale. We then compared the values obtained from the two methods of evaluation. We expect to find a strong correlation between the scores for some, but not all, evaluated parameters.

    • Dark Networks In A Bright Network World

      Ryckman, Kirssa Cline; Mdanat, Petra Maen (The University of Arizona., 2019)
      Bright networks spend billions of dollars each year trying to eliminate dark networks, and yet they still persist to be a threat to regional stability, especially in regions that have weak states. The purpose of this research paper is to determine what bright network behaviors are prolonging the lifetime of dark networks, to determine if these behaviors are of a direct or indirect nature, and figuring out the reasons why legitimate actors would behave in a way that is compromising to their own goals. This purpose will be analyzed through a set of hypotheses, which will then be tested on two case studies. The common theme among all my hypotheses is that there are underlying motivations for bright networks to sponsor dark networks and these are further explored in the case studies. Overall, this paper explores the complexities of dark networks and the struggles of bright networks to eliminate these organizations. This paper looks to further develop the relationship between bright and dark networks and identify where the overlap might be perpetuating, rather than decreasing, dark network activities. Overall, dark networks feed off of corruption, chaos, and instability; therefore states with these issues are prone to dark network insurgencies.
    • Data about metadata: beating the Metamap into shape

      Turner, James M.; Breitenstein, Mikel (2004)
      The MetaMap presents information about metadata standards, sets, and initiatives (MSSIs) in the form of a subway map. The MSSIs are represented as stations on lines having themes. Users can learn about MSSIs of interest to them by navigating around the map and clicking on points of interest to get more information about them. The map is constructed using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), a recommendation of the World Wide Web Consortium. Versions in number of languages are available, and more are being built; however, since funding has run out, the mapâ s future is uncertain. This paper discusses the classification of metadata and design issues surrounding representation of this in the form of a subway map. Finally, paths for development of the MetaMap are indicated.
    • DATA ANALYSIS OF CORALGROWTH IN THE PACIFIC AND ITS RELATION TO CLIMATE

      Cole, Julia; Tozer, Victoria Emily (The University of Arizona., 2016)
      Fourteen individual coral cores from the Pacific and Indian Ocean were evaluated for their relation to climate and proxy indicators (δ18Ο and Sr/Ca). Annual growth rates were calculated for each core and annual averages were calculated for proxy data. The correlation between annual growth rate and each parameter: sea surface temperature anomalies, ENSO anomalies, and proxy data was calculated. Fifty seven percent of correlation values correspond to negative correlation indicating slow growth with warm temperatures in just over half of the data. Only fifteen percent of all correlation values (negative and positive) for sea surface temperature and ENSO anomalies are statistically significant. Due to the absence of any significant trends in coral growth and temperatures it cannot be assumed that corals are affected by warmer ocean temperatures. There is a relatively strong positive trend in Sr/Ca with coral growth, which may indicate an increase in growth with increasing ocean temperatures, however, further analysis would have to be conducted to examine this relationship.
