      This thesis is designed to look deeper into the issues that affecting the five a cappella groups within the UA a cappella community. Six focus groups and a comprehensive survey were conducted to better determine what issues actually exist within the community and to determine how to best solve those issues. Marketing, awareness, member backgrounds, and audition processes are examined by these studies. In order to understand the issues and find the proper solutions, the studies were conducted with roots in consumer behaviors. An inside look into the minds of the consumers, the people auditioning for an a cappella group, is needed to properly understand the roots of, and to fix, the problems the a cappella community currently. In doing so, the community can become aware of what needs to be done to improve in the future. Understanding the consumers and their relations to the group has proved extremely crucial to the future success of UA A Cappella. The following breakdown of research and analysis, as well as concluding recommendations will allow each of the groups within the community to make the necessary changes to pursue great success far into the future.
    • I Like It, But It's Just Not Me: Self Brand Connections, Brand Evaluations, and Experts in Markets

      Placke, Amber Dale (The University of Arizona., 2012-05)
      In my thesis, I explore two important marketing entities, self brand connections and brand evaluations. To begin, I show that there are different levels of expertise in a given domain ranging from amateur to expert. This expertise level affects the degree to which consumers develop self brand connections to brands ranging from recreational to elite. In my study, I show that expert consumers develop special relationships with elite brands that recreational runners do not. Even more interesting, I show that consumers of all expertise levels show the same liking for fashion brands as they do professional brands. Therefore, expert runners can say they like a brand and still feel as it that brand does not represent who they are (i.e. high brand evaluation, low self brand connection). My study shows that self brand connection is not an antecedent to brand evaluation.

    • Ice Ice Baby: Are Librarian Stereotypes Freezing Us Out of Instruction?

      Pagowsky, Nicole; DeFrain, Erica; University of Arizona Libraries (2014-06-03)
      Why do librarians struggle so much with instruction? Part of the problem is that we have so many facets to consider: pedagogy, campus culture, relationships with faculty, and effectiveness with students. Research on student and faculty perceptions of librarians combined with sociological and psychological research on the magnitude of impression effects prompted us to more thoroughly examine how perceptions of instruction librarians impact successful teaching and learning. In this article, we look at theories of impression formation, the historical feminization of librarianship, and suggestions for next steps that we should take in order to take charge of our image and our instruction.
    • ICTS: A catalyst for enriching the learning process and library services in India

      Chandra, Smita; Patkar, Vivek (Elsevier, 2007)
      The advances in ICTs have decisively changed the library and learning environment. On the one hand, ICTs have enhanced the variety and accessibility to library collections and services to break the barriers of location and time. On the other, the e-Learning has emerged as an additional medium for imparting education in many disciplines to overcome the constraint of physical capacity associated with the traditional classroom methods. For a vast developing country like India, this provides an immense opportunity to provide even higher education to remote places besides extending the library services through networking. Thanks to the recent initiatives by the public and private institutions in this direction, a few web-based instruction courses are now running in the country. This paper reviews different aspects of e-Learning and emerging learning landscapes. It further presents the library scene and new opportunities for its participation in the e-Learning process. How these ICTs driven advances can contribute to the comprehensive learning process in India is highlighted.
    • Ideas for Picky Eaters

      Keeling, Heidi L.; Florian Armstrong, Traci L. (College of Agriculture, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2017-08)
      Parents of picky eaters often find it challenging to motivate their children to eat healthy, balanced meals. Two important goals of ensuring healthy lifestyles for our children include teaching them about the importance of a balanced, nutritious diet, and modeling healthy meals at home. For parents of picky eaters, this can seem like an impossible task!
    • Identification of Apnea Events Using a Chest‐Worn Physical Activity Monitor

      Salazar, Eduardo; The University of Arizona College of Medicine - Phoenix; Buman, Matthew (The University of Arizona., 2017-05-25)
      Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition characterized by upper airway obstruction during sleep causing intermittent hypoxia and nighttime awakening. It is a common condition in the United States that is often undiagnosed. It is a significant risk factor for decreased daytime productivity, quality of life, cardiovascular disease, and death. The current gold standard for diagnosis of OSA is laboratory‐based polysomnography (PSG). While PSG is necessary for the diagnosis and monitoring of OSA, many patients have limited access to PSG due to wait times at PSG laboratories or economic or geographic limitations. Portable sleep monitoring has been studied as a possible solution for patients who do not have access to timely PSG. This study aimed to use the Zephyr BioHarness 3, a chest‐worn physical activity monitor that records movement and physiologic data in real‐time, to detect apnea events in patients with suspected OSA undergoing single‐night laboratory PSG. Twenty patients underwent single‐night laboratory‐based PSG while simultaneously wearing the Zephyr BioHarness 3. The Zephyr BioHarness 3 data was analyzed using three methods. First, apnea events were identified in 10‐second windows of Zephyr data via support vector machine, logistic regression, and neural network (sensitivity = 76.0 ± 0.3%, specificity = 62.7 ± 0.2%, accuracy = 63.7 ± 0.1%). Second, apnea events were identified using the mean, median, and variance of the 10‐second windows (sensitivity = 72.3 ± 0.3%, specificity = 69.4 ± 0.1%), accuracy 69.6 ± 0.1%). Third, apnea events were identified using phase‐space transformation of the Zephyr BioHarness 3 data (sensitivity = 76.9 ± 0.3%, specificity = 77.9 ± 0.1 %, accuracy = 77.9 ± 0.1%). The Zephyr BioHarness shows initial promise as a possible OSA screening tool for patients suspected of OSA but who lack access to timely laboratory‐based PSG.
    • Identification Of Historic Streetscape Features In Three Of Tucson’s National Register Of Historic Places Districts: Barrio Anita, Winterhaven, And Colonia Solana

      Iuliano, Joseph; Berger, Wyatt John (The University of Arizona., 2019)
      Historic preservation is often at odds with new development in the United States because of individuals’ and developers’ belief that “newer is better.” Part of the historic built environment includes historic streetscapes features such as sidewalks, utilities, heritage trees, fences and walls, driveways, and views and vistas. While Tucson, Arizona does have support for preservation via Certified Local Governments, zoning ordinances, and community involvement, there is no programming for historic streetscape preservation. With the destruction of historic buildings and other features to make way for wider streets and large-scale housing and office spaces, cultural resources are threatened. Though new development may be good in creating a stronger infrastructure, historic preservation supports the idea of a “sense of place” as well as sustainable benefits most individuals fail to see. This study aims to analyze the importance of historic streetscapes in three of Tucson’s National Register of Historic Places districts by using personal observations, community participation, and digital mapping techniques.

    • Identification of Regulators of Lysosome Formation

      Fares, Hanna; Miesfeld, Roger; Le, Gloria (The University of Arizona., 2017)
      Lysosomes are membrane-bound organelles that serve as the major degradative compartments for endocytic, phagocytic, and autophagic materials targeted for destruction in eukaryotic cells. This degradation is critical to many physiological processes, including processing endocytosed nutrients, down-regulating signaling receptors, presenting antigens, killing pathogenic organisms, and degrading normal and abnormal cellular proteins. In addition, lysosomes mediate some cell death pathways and repair damage to the plasma membrane. Lysosomes are formed in complex eukaryotes by the budding of a small nascent lysosome from a late endosome/hybrid organelle, movement of the nascent lysosome away from the hybrid organelle while maintaining a membrane bridge, and scission of the membrane bridge to release a discrete primary lysosome. We had previously identified the Mucolipidosis type IV protein TRPML1 as a regulator of the scission step during lysosome formation. Here, we describe the identification of additional regulators of this process, including actin that provides the force for moving nascent lysosomes away from late endosomes/hybrid organelles.

    • Identification of technology trend on Indonesian patent documents and research reports on chemistry and metallurgy fields

      Rahayu, Endang Sri Rusmiyati; Hasibuan, Zainal A.; Khoo, C.; Singh, D.; Chaudhry, A.S. (School of Communication & Information, Nanyang Technological University, 2006)
      The aims of this study are: to identify technology trends by identifying core topics, prominence topics, and emerging topics; and to assess the overlap between research and development and patents on chemistry and metallurgy fields in Indonesia during 1993-1997. The technology trends are determined by measuring subject and keyword development on those fields. Co-words analysis is employed to measure the technology categories. The objects of this study are granted patents section C according to International Patent Classification (IPC) and research report documents which was collected from CD ROM of research reports on chemistry and metallurgy fields published by PDII-LIPI. Subjects analysis of patent document are measured based on the number of subclass in chemistry and metallurgy fields using IPC code of patent documents. Subjects analysis of research reports are measured based on the number of subclass in chemistry and metallurgy section using DDC21 system of research report documents. Co-words analysis is measured based on the co-occurrence frequencies of the keywords ap-peared in the research documents. The results showed that overlapping subject and keyword of patent documents and research report documents on chemistry and metallurgy fields in Indonesia during five years (1993 to 1997) was on the organic chemistry, especially on dyes and extraction. Another important subject in patent documents was human necessity, especially on pesticides, drugs, and detergents. The largest subject on research activities period was on food technology, especially on coconut oils, palm oils, and storage. Technology categories on research report documents show that there were no core top-ics of research activities in Indonesia during five years (1993 to 1997). The prominence topics were only on 1993 and 1996 namely fermentation process, storage processes, and drying apparatus. There were core topics, prominence topics and emerging topics on patent documents.
