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 ...
Soaring Eagle: Prestige and American Empire, 1998-2003
What are the causes of the US foreign policy of imperial expansion between 1998 and 2003? US foreign policy in this timeframe is distinctive by its unilateralism and use of force compared to previous instances of American ...
WATER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM DESIGN AND REHABILITATION UNDER CLIMATE CHANGE MITIGATION SCENARIOS
The water industry is a heavy consumer of electricity to pump water. Electricity generated with fossil fuel sources produce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that contribute to climate change. Carbon taxation and economic ...
THE IMPACT OF VIOLATION OF LINGUISTIC EXPECTATIONS ON CHILDREN’S PERCEPTIONS OF HELPFULESS, KNOWLEDGEABILITY AND INFORMATION SEEKING BEHAVIOUR
When seeking information, children expect informants to provide information that is congruent with their knowledge and to use conventional labels. Violations of these linguistic expectations influence their behaviour and ...

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.
INJECTABLE DELIVERY SYSTEM BASED ON 5-ETHYLENE KETAL-ε -CAPROLACTONE FOR THE DELIVERY OF VEGF AND HGF FOR TREATING CRITICAL LIMB ISCHEMIA
The aim of this thesis is to determine the feasibility of an injectable delivery system based on 5-ethylene ketal ε-caprolactone for localized delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and hepatocyte growth ...
Interpersonal Emotion Dynamics in Mother-Daughter Dyads during Adolescence
The overarching goal of the current dissertation was to examine emotion dynamics in mother-daughter interactions across different positive and negative contexts, and their associations with psychosocial adjustment—relationship ...
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 ...
Adaptive Identification of Nonlinear Systems
This work presents three techniques for parameter identification for nonlinear systems. The methods presented are expanded from those presented in Adetola and Guay [3, 4, 5] and are intended to improve the performance of ...
