    • "Ma vie est vraiment différente de ce que je pensais": A life-story analysis of geographies and gendered subjectivities of Francophone mothers in Kingston 

      Simard-Gagnon, Laurence
      This dissertation is about migrant Francophone mothers’ experiences of mothering in Kingston, Ontario. It exposes how elements of these women’s life-stories, namely mothering, migration, and minority language, intersect ...
    • A MAC Protocol For Harsh Industrial IoT Applications 

      Elmaradny, Mohamed
      Heavy industries such as mining, constructions and transportation manufacturing are currently facing many dilemmas due to the critical and harsh conditions that they collide with during their operations. Such environments ...
    • A machine learning application for form-finding of tensegrity structures 

      Perera, Nuwan
      Tensegrity (tensional integrity) is a structural principle where rigid elements (struts) under compression are held together by a network of elastic elements (cables) under tension. Tensegrity structures have many applications ...
    • Machine Vision Based Inspection: Case Studies on 2D Illumination Techniques and 3D Depth Sensors 

      Yan, Michael T. (2012-03-01)
      This paper investigates two distinct, but related, topics in machine vision. The first is the effect of lighting on the performance of a 2D vision-based inspection system. The lighting component of machine vision has often ...
    • Machineries of War and Mechanisms of Change in World Politics 

      Williams, Matthew David (2007-10-01)
      The purpose of this dissertation is to anticipate changes in the international system by examining changes in Western defence industries. The defence industries are a mechanism for producing power. In an anarchic ...
    • MACHINERY-RELATED OPERATIONAL FACTORS AS DETERMINANTS OF INJURY ON CANADIAN PRAIRIE FARMS 

      Narasimhan, Gopinath (2009-09-03)
      Background: Agriculture remains one of the most hazardous occupations in Canada. Approximately one-half of all agricultural injuries are due to machinery. The etiology of machinery-related injury remains poorly ...
    • A macroeconomic study of the costs, consequences and policy implications of sectorial labour reallocation 

      Tapp, Stephen S. (2008-08-14)
      This thesis uses a macroeconomic approach to study labour adjustments following sector-specific shocks. I develop a general model, investigate its dynamic adjustment process and apply it to study the Canadian economy in ...
    • Macromolecular Orientation of Rigid Dumbbells in Shear Flow 

      Jbara, Layal
      We use molecular modeling to study the non-equilibrium behaviour of polymeric fluids. Specifically, we explore the macromolecular orientation induced by shear flow fields. We choose the simplest molecular model, the rigid ...
    • Macromolecular Origins of Fifth Shear-Stress Harmonic in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow 

      Jbara, Layal M.; Gilbert, Peter H.; Giacomin, A. Jeffrey (2016-08)
      This study examines the simplest relevant molecular model of a polymeric liquid in large-amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) flow: the suspension of rigid dumbbells in a Newtonian solvent. For such suspensions, the viscoelastic ...
    • Macromolecular Tumbling and Wobbling in Large-Amplitude Oscillatory Shear Flow 

      Jbara, Layal M.; Giacomin, A. Jeffrey (2018-11)
      For a suspension of rigid dumbbells, in any simple shear flow, we recently solved for the diffusion equation for the orientation distribution function by a power series expansion in the shear rate magnitude. In this paper, ...
    • Madonna 

      unknown Tuscan artist
      This fragmentary painted wood statue depicts the Virgin Mary (as is clear from her typical blue cloak over a red dress). Because of the active pose, the figure likely was originally a part of a group of statues that enacted ...
    • Madonna Adoring the Child 

      Andrea della Robbia, workshop of
      This glazed terracotta sculpture of the Madonna Adoring the Child (also known as the Madonna del Cuscino), was placed in the Cathedral of Arezzo in c. 1817. It is one of many versions of this popular subject made by the ...
    • Madonna Adoring the Child 

      Andrea della Robbia
      In the centre of this tondo, Mary is shown in adoration of the infant Jesus. Surrounding the central image are ten cherubs that are in turn framed by a garland containing fruits and nuts, among them apples, oranges, and ...
    • Madonna Adoring the Child 

      Andrea della Robbia
      Andrea della Robbia made several versions of this composition, probably using a mold. He then customized each, for example by changing the framing elements and adding a familial coat of arms. Here the arms are those of ...
    • Madonna Adoring the Child 

      Andrea della Robbia
      This glazed terracotta relief (in the Museo di San Matteo in Pisa) is one of many made by Andrea della Robbia and his workshop of the Virgin Mary adoring her child, though this is the only known example of this particular ...
    • Madonna and Child 

      Giovanni Fetti, attributed to
      This painted wood sculpture of the Madonna and Child stands on what looks to be an integral base, on which an inscription identifies her as Mary "Bentornata" (more or less "welcome back"). Mary smiles, as her child tickles ...
    • Madonna and Child 

      Baccio da Montelupo, attributed to
      This half-length glazed terracotta Madonna is currently housed in San Concordo in Contrada in Lucca, along with similar half-length terracotta images of St. Romano and St. Pellegrino, which presumably originally flanked ...
    • Madonna and Child 

      Donatello, follower of
      This relief, made of marble, partially gilded with coloured glass inserts, is set into the elaborate nineteenth century Lombardi funereal monument in the wall of the Medici Chapel in Santa Croce in Florence. The composition ...
    • Madonna and Child 

      unknown artist
      This painted terracotta relief is one of many half-length images of the Madonna and Child that were made for domestic devotion in the fifteenth century. This intimate composition, with the Jesus nestled against his mother, ...
