Two metaphors for quantum physics and nonlocality are presented, one in the form of a game, Quantum Tic-Tac-Toe, and the other as an extended version of Spooky-Coins & Magic-Envelopes. Quantum Tic-Tac-Toe introduces the concept of quantum games as metarules on classical games, such that states in the quantum game imply the existence of multiple instances of(More)
The relationship between wing length and body weight of mosquitoes was examined by comparing the fit of regressions using logarithmic and cubic transformations. A two-parameter line using a double logarithmic transformation provided the best fit, and we found no evidence to justify the use of wing length cubed as a transformation. Wing length was not(More)
In the current formalism of quantum mechanics, collapse of the wave function is envisioned as occurring " instantaneously ". Since this is in conflict with the fact that " simultaneity " is not a relativistic invariant, quantum mechanics and relativity are in conflict with each another. This conflict is benign as long as faster-than-light (FTL) phenomena(More)
Previous studies with Oriental Fruit Moth (OFM, Grapholita molesta) and Heliothis virescens males flying upwind along a pheromone plume showed that they increased their upwind flight speed as they flew higher above striped floor patterns and, for OFM, to a similar degree over dotted floor patterns. This response pattern has been demonstrated in another moth(More)
Five km of hiking trails in Castle Rock State Park in Ogle Co., Ill., were drag-sampled for Ixodes dammini Spielman, Clifford, Piesman & Corwin between 15 May and 19 October 1989. Densities of nymphs peaked on 22 June, larval densities peaked on 9 August, and adult densities had two peaks, 15 May and 19 October. The terrain crossed by the trails consisted(More)
Almonds can be contaminated with aflatoxins, produced mainly by Aspergillus flavus and A. parasiticus. Infection can be facilitated by insect injuries during hull split, which begins four to six weeks before harvest. Within this period, it is unknown which kernel stages are most susceptible to aflatoxin contamination. Developing almonds of the Nonpareil(More)
For some polyphagous insects, adaptation to phytochemically novel plants can enhance resistance to certain pesticides, but whether pesticide resistance expands tolerance to phytochemicals has not been examined. Amyelois transitella Walker (navel orangeworm) is an important polyphagous pest of nut and fruit tree crops in California. Bifenthrin resistance,(More)
The type of solvent and the volume used to load pheromone components onto rubber septa had significant effects on pheromone release ratios, the variability of those release ratios, and the recoverability of the volatile components during subsequent extraction with hexane. Volatile release ratios of synthetic Oriental fruit moth (OFM) pheromone and(More)
