Treatment of Migraine Headache Utilizing Cerebral Electrostimulation

Treatment of Migraine Headache Utilizing Cerebral Electrostimulation

Date: December 1976
Creator: England, Ronald R.
Description: Cerebral electrostimulation (CES) as a treatment for migraine headache was investigated. Eighteen participants recorded data on headaches for two baseline weeks. Six were assigned to each of three groups--an active treatment group receiving CES, a placebo group receiving a simulated version of CES, and a no-treatment control group placed on a waiting list during the study. The CES group evidenced a significant reduction in headache duration and intensity relative to the placebo group. The waiting list control group did as well as the CES group. A number of hypotheses were put forth in an attempt to account for the unexpected finding.

The Use of Closed Circuit Television as an Implement of Industrial Security

Date: December 1976
Creator: Kirkpatrick, Edwin F.
Description: The problem of this study was to determine to what extent industry was making use of closed circuit television as an implement of industrial security. The data for this study were provided by a group of thirty-two security chiefs of industry, and by another group of fifteen law enforcement officials in the Dallas and Fort Worth Metropolitan area. Of those industrial concerns making use of closed circuit television as an aid to security, a majority use the medium for surveillance of controlled access areas, with theft control and control of plant access following closely behind. For the most part, all surveyed thought that closed circuit television was very efficient.

The Wallman Spaces and Compactifications

The Wallman Spaces and Compactifications

Date: December 1976
Creator: Liu, Wei-kong
Description: If X is a topological space and Y is a ring of closed sets, then a necessary and sufficient condition for the Wallman space W(X,F) to be a compactification of X is that X be T1 andYF separating. A necessary and sufficient condition for a Wallman compactification to be Hausdoff is that F be a normal base. As a result, not all T, compactifications can be of Wallman type. One point and finite Hausdorff compactifications are of Wallman type.

El amor como fuerza motivadora en la vida y obra poética y dramática de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda

El amor como fuerza motivadora en la vida y obra poética y dramática de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda

Date: May 1977
Creator: Milián, Marta Lucrecia
Description: This thesis presents a study of events in the life of Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, a lyric poetess and dramatist during the Romantic period, as motivating forces in her literary career. As might be expected in the case of a true representative of the Romantic period, Avellaneda's passions and personal life are reflected in all of her works. She uses human and divine love as the main themes throughout all of her literary production, especially in her lyric poetry and the four tragedies chosen for this study: Munio Alfonso (1844), El Príncipe de Viana (1844), Saúl (1849), and Baltasar (1858).

Analysis and Evaluation of the Role of Public Relations in Leasing Dallas Petroleum Center

Analysis and Evaluation of the Role of Public Relations in Leasing Dallas Petroleum Center

Date: May 1977
Creator: Ainsworth, Doris Stewart
Description: The problem in this study was to discover if the public relations program of the Dallas Petroleum Center was useful in leasing and if the program played a significant role in a leasing increase. The study was carried out by describing the development of the building project, by analyzing the planning and execution of the public relations program, by testing the program's effectiveness, and by drawing conclusions about the program and by making recommendations for this specific program and for office leasing in general. The effectiveness of the program was tested by questionnaires and interviews. The public relations program proved to be an effective tool in leasing office space; and a similar program was recommended for other buildings.

An Analysis of Community Attitudes Toward the "Bowie News" as a News-Advertising Medium

An Analysis of Community Attitudes Toward the "Bowie News" as a News-Advertising Medium

Date: May 1977
Creator: Whitfield, James Daniel
Description: This study measured attitudes of newspaper staff members, advertisers, subscribers, and power structure members toward the Bowie News as a news and advertising medium. Three hypotheses were tested: that members of the power structure would have a more favorable attitude toward the Bowie News than other readers; that the Bowie News would play an active role as an instrument of the power structure; and that all four publics would differ in their perception of the newspaper's role in getting information to the community. The hypotheses were tested by a t test and rejected. Publics' attitudes were homogeneous. It was concluded that the Bowie News reflects consensus opinion within the community and is a trusted news source.

The Applications of Regression Analysis in Auditing and Computer Systems

The Applications of Regression Analysis in Auditing and Computer Systems

Date: May 1977
Creator: Hubbard, Larry D.
Description: This thesis describes regression analysis and shows how it can be used in account auditing and in computer system performance analysis. The study first introduces regression analysis techniques and statistics. Then, the use of regression analysis in auditing to detect "out of line" accounts and to determine audit sample size is discussed. These applications led to the concept of using regression analysis to predict job completion times in a computer system. The feasibility of this application of regression analysis was tested by constructing a predictive model to estimate job completion times using a computer system simulator. The predictive model's performance for the various job streams simulated shows that job completion time prediction is a feasible application for regression analysis.

Association of Masculinity Scores with Five Measures of Adjustment at the Gainesville State School for Delinquent Youths

Association of Masculinity Scores with Five Measures of Adjustment at the Gainesville State School for Delinquent Youths

Date: May 1977
Creator: Kurtz, Howard A.
Description: The problem with which this investigation is concerned is that of determining the effects of masculinity on achievement. The California Psychological Inventory Fe Scale is used to measure masculinity. Results from this scale are compared with results on five measures of adjustment; Wechsler I.Q. scores, the Gainesville State School point system, and three scales constructed for this study to measure aspects of adjustment. The findings of this study fail to support the proposition that masculinity affects adjustment. The instrument used in this study to measure masculinity may be culturally biased. Further research is needed in this area using a number of measures of masculinity to determine masculinity's effects on adjustment.
