Death of a Mall: Exploring the rising boom of "green" outdoor shopping centers in North Texas: Is it fad or future?
This presentation discusses research on the rising boom of outdoor shopping centers in North Texas. In this presentation, the authors give a brief history of traditional malls, explore the transition to outdoor centers, and look at new horizons for Dallas/Fort-Worth (DFW) shopping including smart growth, going "green" and other marketing buzzwords, and what LEEDs are. The authors also look at the future of DFW retail and present their conclusions. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86901/
Dissolved Lithium Concentrations and Texas Suicide Mortality Rates 1980-1998
This presentation discusses dissolved lithium concentrations and the spatial distribution of suicide mortality rates in Texas counties, from 1980-1998. The results suggest that counties with lower dissolved lithium concentrations in their groundwater had significantly higher suicide mortality rates. Counties with higher populations of Whites had significantly higher suicide mortality rates, but counties with higher populations of Hispanics had significantly lower suicide mortality rates. Males had higher suicide mortality rates than females. Further research into the relationship between lithium concentrations and suicide is warranted. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86930/

The Geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas, 1999-2003
This paper discusses research on the geography of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) in Harris County, Texas from 1999-2003. Abstract: This research examines the geography of HIV in Harris County, Texas and the factors associated with areas of high prevalence. Zip code-level prevalence rates obtained from the Texas State Department of Health for 1999-2003 is the dependent variable, while education, race/ethnicity, and income taken from the 2000 Census are used as explanatory variables with Spearman's rank correlation analysis. The results suggest that race/ethnicity, level of education, and income have significant relationships with the HIV rate in Harris County Zip codes. Zip codes with a high percentage of African Americans, a high percentage of adults with an education level of eighth grade or less, and a high percentage of people with income below the poverty line, tend to have higher HIV rates. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86941/

NAGPRA Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act: The Law and Ethics of the Kennewick Man Controversy
This presentation discusses research on the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) and the law and ethics of the Kennewick Man. On the bank of the Columbia River in 1996, the remains of a Native American man were found and dated to 9,300 years ago. NAGPRA mandates that tribes be notified when Native American remains are found. Tribes were not notified of these remains; however the remains were found to be "culturally unaffiliated". The remains are currently being stored at the Burke Museum, after the courts ruled against the Utamilla tribe. This presentation discusses these remains and examines the legal factors and legislation on remains. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86921/

Notes on the Reality of Archaeological Data: Two Zooarchaeological Case Studies from the Northern Rio Grande Region of New Mexico
This presentation discusses research on archaeology. Public and academic perception of archaeology is unstructured. Members of the general public view archaeologists as key holders to the past, and members of "harder sciences" view archaeology as a pseudoscience. Both of these observations are problematic for the integrity of archaeological research and the field as a whole. Two case studies from the Northern Rio Grande (NRG) region of New Mexico show the limitations of zooarchaeological data. Principles derived from these case studies can help assuage overconfidence from the general public, as well as members of the archaeological community, and can ease excessive caution from members of the "harder sciences" in regard to archaeological conclusions. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc93233/

Pediatric and Maternal HIV in Texas Border Counties and Urban Area
This presentation accompanies a paper examining the geography of pediatric HIV, HIV in women, and age at diagnosis of women in the Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex, Houston-Galveston Area, and the colonies of the Texas-Mexico border counties using the human ecology model. In addition, the research investigates the correlation of female HIV rates and female age at diagnosis with pediatric HIV. County-level morbidity data from the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) from 1980 to 2009 are analyzed. Pediatric HIV and HIV in women have a strong positive correlation. The border counties have lower rates of HIV than do the urban areas, and have the youngest age at diagnosis, but have a higher pediatric HIV rate than the Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex. Interventions should target preventing HIV in females. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc93260/

Retreating Glaciers of the Himalayas: A Case Study of Gangotri Glacier Using 1990-2009 Satellite Images
This presentation discusses research on retreating glaciers in the Himalayas. Glacier retreating associated with snow and ice melting has received increased attention as a sensitive indicator of global warming. Based on satellite images (Landsat TM/ETM+) acquired between 1990 and 2009 and a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) produced by NASA's Space Shuttle Endeavor in 2000, this study focuses on detecting and quantifying spatial and temporal changes of exposed glaciers and moraine-covered glaciers. The results suggest that the Gangotri Glacier has been retreating at a remarkable rate. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc93248/
A Spatial Analysis of Random Gunfire Incidents in Dallas, TX
This presentation discusses a research study on the spatial analysis of random gunfire in Dallas, Texas. The objectives of this research were to determine the difference between incidents of random gunfire (RGF) and reports of RGF, the demographic profile of the RGF incident locations, and the neighborhoods where clusters of RGF occur. The conclusions found: (1) RGF can be isolated into specific incidents using a GIS with a time/space threshold, (2) RGF is correlated with levels of education, median household income, levels of owner-occupied housing and total population, and (3) RGF is significantly clustered in neighborhoods with specific demographic profiles. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86918/
Spatial Distribution of Solutes in Aquifer Outcrop Zones along the Brazos River, East-Central Texas
This articles discusses the spatial distribution of solutes in Aquifer outcrop zones along the Brazos River in east-central, Texas. Concentrations of several solutes - nitrate, arsenic, sulfate, boron, chloride, and bromide - along with total dissolved solids (TDS) in ten counties bordering the Brazos River in east-central, Texas were compiled, mapped, and analyzed relative to regional land use and geology. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc152433/
A Study of Alzheimer's Disease in Texas Counties
This presentation discusses a research study on Alzheimer's disease in Texas counties. More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's disease. The total annual cost of Alzheimer's and other dementias adds up to more than $148 billion. Alzheimer's disease poses an increasing burden on the health care industry due to the number of people at risk and nature of the disease. For this study, the author investigates whether Alzheimer's mortality rates will be influenced by dissolved aluminum concentration in the groundwater, race/ethnicity, gender, and whether Alzheimer's mortality rates are increasing over time. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86863/
Taking Apple to the People: A Successful Retail Strategy for the Store Doomed to Fail
This presentation discusses the Apple company and the success of their retail stores. When Apple first began their store locations, many people thought that the stores were doomed for failure. The Apple stores were seen as something that would quickly fail and become a costly mistake for the company. There are now over 247 Apple stores in at least 8 countries and the company is nearing/surpassing 10% in the Personal Computer (PC) market share. In this presentation, the author examines the company's successful strategies that are continuing to work. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc86846/
