Women in Transition: Changes in Gender Wage Differentials in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union
- E. Brainerd
- 1 October 2000
Under state socialism, women fared relatively well in the labor market: female-male wage differentials were similar to those in the West, and female labor force participation rates were among the…
Winners and Losers in Russia's Economic Transition
- E. Brainerd
The transition to a market economy has produced a substantial and rapid change in the wage structure in Russia. Household surveys taken before and after the transition indicate that overall wage…
X-ray reconstruction of moving morphology (XROMM): precision, accuracy and applications in comparative biomechanics research.
The biplanar fluoroscopy hardware and computational methods described here should make XROMM an accessible and useful addition to the available technologies for studying the form, function, and evolution of vertebrate animals.
CONVERGENCE IN THE FEEDING MECHANICS OF ECOMORPHOLOGICALLY SIMILAR SPECIES IN THE CENTRARCHIDAE AND CICHLIDAE
The ram-suction index (RSI) was developed to identify the relative contributions of ram feeding and suction feeding to shortening the predator-prey distance during the strike and provides a bench mark for evaluating the hydrodynamic consequences of intraspecific, interspecific and interprey variation in strike mechanics.

Variable gearing in pennate muscles provides a mechanism to modulate muscle performance during mechanically diverse functions and is suggested to be an automatic transmission system allowing a pennate muscle to shift from a high gear during rapid contractions to low gear during forceful contractions.
Importing Equality? The Impact of Globalization on Gender Discrimination
A key dynamic implication of the Becker model of discrimination (1957) is that increased product market competition will drive out costly discrimination in the long run. This paper tests that…

XMALab, a new open-source software package for marker-based XROMM, offers greater precision and reproducibility than existing tools for tracking markers in videos, yielding greater sensitivity for measuring 3D motions with X ROMM animations.
The Economic Effects of the 1918 Influenza Epidemic
The 1918-19 influenza epidemic killed at least 40 million people worldwide and 675,000 people in the United States, far exceeding the combat deaths experienced by the US in the two World Wars, Korea,…
