985 T he Hanford Site in south-central Washington State produced plutonium for the USDOE weapons program from 1943 to 1989. Plutonium (Pu) production involved the fi ssion of uranium fuels using nine nuclear reactors along the Columbia River, followed by the extraction and concentration of trace product Pu through chemically intensive processing regimes(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the identification of maternal deaths at the community level using the reproductive age mortality survey (RAMOS) in all households in which a women of reproductive age (WRA) died and to determine the most concise subset of questions for identifying a pregnancy-related death for further investigation. METHODS A full RAMOS survey(More)

We describe those ideals of an arbitrary associative unital ring R which extend to prime ideals in three noncommutative extensions. The first extension is the polynomial extension S = R[x; σ] invented by Ore. In the case when σ is surjective, we completely characterize those ideals I of R for which IS is a prime ideal. We do the same for the closely related(More)
An artinian ring R is square-free in case none of its inde-composable projective modules has a repeated composition factor. Let Q be the quiver of such a square-free ring R. In this paper we show that if R is indecomposable and transitive on the cyclic components of Q and if Q contains no n-crown, then R ∼ = D ⊗ K A where D is the natural division ring of(More)
Rice is a crop that is usually grown under flooded conditions and can require large amounts of water. The objective of this 3-year study was to quantify water use in water- (WS) and dry-seeded (DS) systems. In WS systems, the field is continuously flooded, while in DS systems the field is flush irrigated for the first month and then flooded. Research was(More)
BACKGROUND Little is known about how optimism/pessimism and health-related quality of life compare across cultures. METHODS Three samples of pregnant women in their final trimester were recruited from China, Ghana, and the United States (U.S.). Participants completed a survey that included the Life Orientation Test - Revised (LOT-R, an optimism/pessimism(More)
The following individuals were among those who received doctorates during 1954 in the mathematical sciences and related subjects from universities in the United States and Canada. The university, month in which the degree was conferred, minor subjects (other than mathematics), and title of the dissertation are given in each case if available. Partial(More)
151 supports? " Because uniform topological priors imply inappropriately informative clade priors, the latter interpretation is required. The Bayes factor (Jeffreys, 1960) allows an interpretation of such posteriors; it estimates how the evidence at hand has borne out prior assertions, regardless of how meaningful these priors are.
