Investigations of Novel Uses for Boron Compounds in Organic and Inorganic Chemistry
Herein I describe a model study to determine the feasibility of organic hydride donors as a source of hydride in the regeneration of ammonia borane. Hydride transfer was observed in the model system comprised of Hantzsch ...
The influence of landscape on genetic structure of a threatened reptile: the eastern massasauga rattlesnake
Understanding the impacts of both natural and anthropogenic landscape features on genetic diversity, population structure and connectivity has important implications for conservation of species living in fragmented ...
PASIF A Framework for supporting Smart Interactions with Predictive Analytics
As computing matures, it is becoming increasingly obvious that a change is necessary for the manner in which web services interact with users. Server-centric models are inconvenient for users. A new paradigm, Smart ...
Analysis of Tunnel Liner Response in Squeezing Heterogeneous Rockmasses
Squeezing ground in tunnelling is a unique method of failure, typically occurring in ductile rock at depth. To accommodate this mechanism of failure, liners have been designed such that they reduce in circumference as the ...
Backyard Chicken Policy: Lessons from Vancouver, Seattle and Niagara Falls
The report “Backyard Chicken Policy: Lessons from Vancouver, Seattle and Niagara Falls”, explores the practice of urban agriculture in the cities of Vancouver, British Columbia; Seattle, Washington; and Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Characterization of a Newly Synthesized Cysteinyl Leukotriene 2 Receptor Selective Antagonist Using Cell Based β-arrestin and Vascular Ear Permeability Assays in Mice
(hCysLT2R) based on a β-galactosidase complementation system. The EC50 values for LTC4 and LTD4 are consistent with previous literature values determined based on radio-labelling affinity assays for hCysLT2R. Activity ...
PLACE MARKETING AND PLACE MAKING: TORONTO, TOURISM, AND THE FRACTURED GAZE
This thesis is an empirical and theoretical investigation into the changing trends in place marketing as it relates to urban tourism, particularly in the city of Toronto. It begins by exploring broader discourses to do ...
Limnology and paleolimnology of adjacent High Arctic lakes with an emphasis on terrestrial-aquatic linkages: Cape Bounty, Melville Island, Nunavut
Our knowledge of how Arctic freshwater ecosystems will respond to continued climate change and variability is fundamentally limited by logistical difficulties of such remote research, resulting in relatively sparse long-term ...
