The original diaspora of Indians to Fiji at the behest of a colonial government and a multinational company of the times is outlined. Progress of these indentured labourers is discussed as they worked to build a future for their descendants, moving from labouring in agriculture through trading to the professions. The impacts of the post independence coups… (More)
International award given annually by the University of Minnesota for most meritorious Ph.D. thesis in Hydraulics and related fields.
The confirmation of excess power production and nuclear product evolution in various hydrided metal systems has led many to speculate about technological applications. Here we present a preliminary assessment of how "cold fusion" reactions may affect the technologies that are critical to space exploration. In particular, the implications for space… (More)
Ultrastructural changes in the cortical cytoskeleton during wound-induced cytoplasmic contraction were examined in the coenocytic green alga Ernodesmis verticillata. Both calmodulin (CaM) and actin were localized in intact and contracting cells by immunogold labeling. Within 5 min after wounding, compact microfilament (MF) bundles were observed which… (More)
The involvement of calmodulin (CaM) in wound-induced cytoplasmic contractions in E. verticillata was investigated. Indirect immunofluorescence of CaM in intact cells showed a faint, reticulate pattern of fluorescence in the cortical cytoplasm. Diffuse fluorescence was evident deeper within the cytoplasm. In contracted cells, CaM co-localizes with actin in… (More)
