AbstractThe internship with the Management Services Division of the Office of the City Manager in Dallas, Texas, provided opportunities to observe and participate in management and supervisory techniques and practices. The administrative environment of the Office of the City Manager provided the opportunities to assist the three Assistant Managers in the performance of their respective activities. Projects and assignments were discussed with these officials as were the personal views of administration and supervision of each Assistant Manager. The major portion of the internship was spent researching and writing reports on different projects assigned by the Assistant Managers. Research techniques, leadership theories, and interviewing concepts were practiced and tested.

The Cepheid Distance to the Seyfert 1 Galaxy NGC 4151Yuan, W.; Fausnaugh, M. M.; Hoffmann, S. L.; Macri, L. M.; Peterson, B. M.; Riess, A. G.; Bentz, M. C.; Brown, J. S.; Bontà, E. Dalla; Dalla Bontà, E.; et al. (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2020-10-08)We derive a distance of 15.8 0.4 Mpc to the archetypal Seyfert 1 galaxy NGC 4151 based on the near-infrared Cepheid period-luminosity relation and new Hubble Space Telescope multiband imaging. This distance determination, based on measurements of 35 long-period (P> 25 days) Cepheids, will support the absolute calibration of the supermassive black hole mass in this system, as well as studies of the dynamics of the feedback or feeding of its active galactic nucleus.
Swift Monitoring of NGC 4151: Evidence for a Second X-Ray/UV ReprocessingEdelson, R.; Gelbord, J.; Cackett, E. M.; Connolly, S.; Done, C.; Fausnaugh, M.; Gardner, E.; Gehrels, N.; Goad, M.; Horne, K.; et al. (IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2017-05-03)Swift monitoring of NGC 4151 with an similar to 6 hr sampling over a total of 69 days in early 2016 is used to construct light curves covering five bands in the X-rays (0.3-50 keV) and six in the ultraviolet (UV)/optical (1900-5500 angstrom). The three hardest X-ray bands (> 2.5 keV) are all strongly correlated with no measurable interband lag, while the two softer bands show lower variability and weaker correlations. The UV/optical bands are significantly correlated with the X-rays, lagging similar to 3-4 days behind the hard X-rays. The variability within the UV/optical bands is also strongly correlated, with the UV appearing to lead the optical by similar to 0.5-1 days. This combination of greater than or similar to 3 day lags between the X-rays and UV and less than or similar to 1 day lags within the UV/optical appears to rule out the "lamp-post" reprocessing model in which a hot, X-ray emitting corona directly illuminates the accretion disk, which then reprocesses the energy in the UV/optical. Instead, these results appear consistent with the Gardner & Done picture in which two separate reprocessings occur: first, emission from the corona illuminates an extreme-UV-emitting toroidal component that shields the disk from the corona; this then heats the extreme-UV component, which illuminates the disk and drives its variability.
Rove Beetle Control Using Selected Insecticide Agents on Bentgrass Greens TurfKopec, David M.; Gilbert, Jeff J.; Gauge, Dawn; Smith, Kirk A.; Pessarakli, Mohammed; Piscopo, Dallas; Kopec, David M. (College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, University of Arizona (Tucson, AZ), 2004-02)Rove beetles (Osorius planifrons) can and often do cause extensive surface disruption on turf mowed at greens height. Two rates (1x and 2x of product label rate) of Crusade (fonophos), Sevin (carbaryl), DeltaGard (deltamethrin), and Chipco Choice (fipronil), were applied on September 28, 2001 on an SR1020 creeping bentgrass green. Percent rove beetle control was nearly 100% for DeltaGard at 9, 15 and 32 days after treatment, regardless of rate. Crusade had nearly 100% control at either rate at 9 days after treatment, which decreased slightly to 90-93% control by 15 days after treatment. Deltamethrin maintained 95% and 98% control at the 1x and 2x rates respectively, at the close of the test (32 DAT). Crusade maintained 93% and 98% control at the 1x and 2x rates at 32 DAT. Chipco Choice had a maximum control of 24% at 7 DAT when applied at the 1x rate, and a maximum control of 57% at 32 DAT when applied at the 2x rate. Sevin provided low levels of control which peaked at 53% at the 1x rate at 9 DAT, which decreased immediately afterwards. Delta-Gard and Crusade provided excellent control levels of rove beetles on SR1020 bentgrass greens.
