    The sulfur limit, the relationship between the sulfur added and the surface Fe atoms lost (Fe/S), and mechanism of sulfur poisoning were studied using an iron Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) catalyst (100 Fe/5.1 Si/2.0Cu/3.0K). ...
  • First measurement of muon-neutrino disappearance in NOvA 

    NOvA Collaboration; Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2016-03-25)
    This paper reports the first measurement using the NOvA detectors of nu(mu) disappearance in a nu(mu) beam. The analysis uses a 14 kton-equivalent exposure of 2.74 x 10(20) protons-on-target from the Fermilab NuMI beam. ...
  • First measurement of electron neutrino appearance in NOvA 

    Meyer, Holger; Muether, Mathew; Solomey, Nickolas (American Physical Society, 2016-04-13)
    We report results from the first search for nu(mu) -> nu(e) transitions by the NOvA experiment. In an exposure equivalent to 2.74 x 10(20) protons on target in the upgraded NuMI beam at Fermilab, we observe 6 events in the ...
  • Editorial: The inherent high vulnerability of dopaminergic neurons toward mitochondrial toxins may contribute to the etiology of Parkinsons disease 

    Wimalasena, Kandatege (Medknow, 2016-03-16)
    Although the exact mechanism(s) of the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson's disease (PD) is not well understood, mitochondrial dysfunction is proposed to play a central role. This proposal is strongly ...
  • Protostellar collapse using multigroup radiation hydrodynamics 

    Vaytet, Neil; Chabrier, Gilles; Audit, Edouard; Commercon, Benoit; Masson, Jacques; Gonzalez, Matthias; Ferguson, Jason W.; Delahaye, Franck (Astronomical Society of the Pacific, 2015)
    Many simulations of protostellar collapse make use of a grey treatment of radiative transfer coupled to the hydrodynamics. However, interstellar gas and dust opacities present large variations as a function of frequency. ...
  • Assessing whether religious behaviors and positive and negative affect are associated with alcohol use and abuse among a sample of college students living in the midwest 

    Carmack, Chakema C.; Lewis-Moss, Rhonda K. (Springer International Publishing AG, 2016-06)
    Alcohol use and abuse are a problem on college campuses. Religious behaviors (religious attendance, prayer, and importance) have been shown to be a protective factor against alcohol use among college students. This study ...
  • Twitter analysis: studying US weekly trends in work stress and emotion 

    Wang, Wei; Hernandez, Ivan; Newman, Daniel A.; He, Jibo; Bian, Jiang (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2016-04)
    We propose the use of Twitter analysis as an alternative source of data to document weekly trends in emotion and stress, and attempt to use the method to estimate the work recovery effect of weekends. On the basis of ...
  • Virtue and prejudice: giving and taking reasons 

    Birondo, Noell N. (Oxford University Press, 2016-04-01)
    The most long-standing criticism of virtue ethics in its traditional, eudaimonistic variety centers on its apparently foundational appeal to nature in order to provide a source of normativity. This paper argues that a ...
  • School racial composition and parental choice: new evidence on the preferences of white parents in the United States 

    Billingham, Chase M.; Hunt, Matthew O. (SAGE Publications, 2016-04)
    Racial segregation remains a persistent problem in U.S. schools. In this article, we examine how social psychological factorsin particular, individuals' perceptions of schools with varying demographic characteristicsmay ...
  • Book review: How sex became a civil liberty 

    Henry, Robin (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., 2016)
    The US Supreme Court regularly reviews cases dealing with sexual liberty, privacy, and freedom of speech. Where our understanding of sexuality and sexual privacy as a civil liberty originated and how it evolved is the ...
