Theorizing Progress: Women in Science, Engineering, and Technology in Higher Education
A conceptual framework of positions on women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) was developed, showing a chronological progression of the main approaches to women's underrepresentation in SET during the past 20 ...
Acquisition and analysis of adaptive optics imaging polarimetry data
(EDP Sciences, 1999-07-01)
The process of data taking. reduction and calibration of near-infrared imaging polarimetry data taken with the ESO Adaptive Optics System ADONIS is described. The ADONIS polarimetric facility is provided by a rotating wire ...
Feasibility of a lifestyle cardiovascular health promotion programme for 8--15-year-olds in irish general practice: results of the galway health project
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 1999-09-01)
Health promotion initiatives in general practice suggest moderate benefit for adults, but little evidence in children. This study assessed the feasibility of a cardiovascular programme for 8-15-year-olds targeted at smoking, ...

Catching the light curve of a flaring grb. the opportunity offered by gravitational lensing
(EDP Sciences, 1999-09-01)
The photometric history of the events related to Gamma-Ray Bursts can be studied from the very beginning, or even before, if they are repeated (at least two times after the first event) by effect of gravitational lensing. ...
Limits to quantum gravity effects on energy dependence of the speed of light from observations of tev flares in active galaxies
(American Physical Society (APS), 1999-09-13)
We have used data from a TeV gamma-ray flare associated with the active galaxy Markarian 421 to place bounds on the possible energy dependence of the speed of light in the context of an effective quantum gravitational ...
Structural studies on lipopolysaccharides of serologically non-typable strains of helicobacter pylori, af1 and 007, expressing lewis antigenic determinants
In contrast to other Helicobacter pylori strains, which have serologically detectable Lewis(x) (Le(x)) and Lewis(y) (Le(y)) antigenic determinants in the O-specific polysaccharide chains of the lipopolysaccharides, H. ...
Short report. a survey of householders' mitigation strategy. response to raised radon levels
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 1999-03-01)
Background: Many Irish homes have unacceptable levels of radon, but there is no information on mitigation actions. Methods: All householders in an urban area with levels above 200 Bq/m(3) were surveyed and a 10% sample was ...
Thermotolerance and cell death are distinct cellular responses to stress: dependence on heat shock proteins
