SUMMARY To meet the challenge of the 1990's and beyond there is a need to adopt advanced manufacturing technologies and new manufacturing techniques. In particular, there is a growing recognition of the need to develop a more holistic approach to the organisation of the business and the computer technologies it uses. One label often applied to this approach(More)
The pres ent study exam ined the effects of pub lic self-focus and par tic i pants' sex on self-hand i cap ping behav ior. Research in the area of self-hand i cap ping has con sis tently shown that men alone tend to self-hand i cap behaviorally. Because con di tions of pub lic self-focus tend to make the evaluative impli ca tions of per for-mance more(More)
This study was undertaken to determine when U.S. children begin to self-handicap, that is, to reduce preparation effort before evaluations rather than applying themselves to do their best. The personal variables examined for their impact on practice behavior were gender, grade level, and self-esteem. The situational variables were time of the self-esteem(More)
Lipids were extracted from vegetative cells and spores of Clostridium botulinum. The total lipids extracted averaged approximately 3.8% of the dry weight of vegetative cells and 2.5% of the dry weight of spores of types 61E, "F," and 115B. The fatty acids were analyzed in the form of their methyl esters by gas-liquid chromatography. Infrared spectroscopy,(More)
Non-semiconservative DNA synthesis was examined in BHK-21/C13 cells after treatment with the aliphatic N-nitrosobutylamine (NB) and the heterocyclic N-nitrosomorpholine (NM). The extent of repair synthesis after alkylation was compared quentitatively and calculations were made of the amount of DNA damage per cell and number of bases inserted per damaged(More)
Studies on techniques of reducing aggression have typically examined passive, matching, and punitive strategies of counteraggression and have been remarkably inconsistent in their findings. This research was designed to resolve the contradictory results by reconceptuallzing the strategies in terms of counteraggression/aggression (cA/A) ratios. We predicted(More)
This study explored the combined effects of personal factors (participant sex), interpersonal factors (experimenter sex), and situational factors (performance feedback) on two forms of behavioral self-handicapping. Participants received non-contingent success or failure feedback concerning their performance on a novel ability and were given the opportunity(More)
