Staying Connected: Technology Use in Grandparent-grandchild Relationships

Staying Connected: Technology Use in Grandparent-grandchild Relationships

Date: December 2012
Creator: Novak, Hannah R.
Description: Despite the distance that often separates grandparents from their young adult grandchildren, the abundance of new technologies provides numerous means of connection for the grandparent-grandchild (GP-GC) dyad. The purpose of this study was to understand how grandparents use technology, namely text messaging and Facebook, in relationships with their young adult grandchildren. Specifically, the aim was to understand grandparents' purposes for using these technologies with their grandchildren, their motivations for using these technologies, and their perceptions of these technologies. Qualitative interviews were conducted with 23 grandparent participants and analyzed according to the procedures delineated in grounded theory analysis. Both text messaging and Facebook emerged as important tools for connection, as text messaging encourages more frequent communication and Facebook helps grandparents "fill in the gaps" about their grandchildren's lives. Furthermore, results indicated that grandparents' uses of text messaging, and to a lesser extent Facebook, are acts of accommodation to their grandchildren.

Steady-state and Dynamic Probe Characteristics in a Low-density Plasma

Steady-state and Dynamic Probe Characteristics in a Low-density Plasma

Date: December 1970
Creator: Bunting, William David
Description: The problem with which this investigation is concerned is that of determining the steady-state and dynamic characteristics of the admittance of a metallic probe immersed in a laboratory plasma which has the low electron densities and low electron temperatures characteristic of the ionospheric plasma. The problem is separated into three related topics: the design and production of the laboratory plasma, the measurement of the steady-state properties of dc and very low frequency probe admittance, and the study of transient ion sheath effects on radio frequency probe admittance.

Stepan Trofimovitch Verhovensky: the Key to The Possessed

Stepan Trofimovitch Verhovensky: the Key to The Possessed

Date: June 1970
Creator: Kinsey, Marcia DIckson
Description: In the "metaphysical vacuum" of The Possessed Stepan Trofimovitch Verhovensky is symbolic of a non-productive stewardship--a father who did not father, a teacher who did not teach, and elder who did not will wisdom and tradition to the dependent younger generation. It is puzzling how little critical notice has been taken of Stepan, and it is a lonely position to find in him the key to the teeming, chaotic world of the novel, but this is the thesis which will be pursued.

The Stereochemistry of Diphenylhexatriene

The Stereochemistry of Diphenylhexatriene

Date: 1948
Creator: Secrest, Everett Leigh

Stereoisomerism of Dimethyl Muconate

Stereoisomerism of Dimethyl Muconate

Date: 1950
Creator: Bearden, Robert Gene
Description: The acid which is analogous to the next member of the diphenylpolyenes, 1,4-diphenylbutadiene, is muconic acid. This acid has been chosen to be investigated in an effort to isolate all the stereoisomers of a set containing more than two isomers.
