PRELIMINARY FIRST DRAFT The rise in oil and gas prices and drilling activity in the past decade has caused economists and policymakers to reconsider whether natural resource production bene…ts producer economies or instead creates a “Natural Resource Curse.”We use con…dential establishmentlevel data from the US Census of Manufactures and Longitudinal(More)
The motility of demembranated bull sperm was found to be governed by the concentrations of cyclic adenosine 3', 5'-monophosphate (cAMP) and Ca2+ at low pH (6.6-7.1), and was less sensitive to these variables at higher pH (7.4-7.8). Although motility was generally found to increase with increasing pH in the range from 6.6 to 7.8, the addition of exogenous(More)
Rat sperm, demembranated with 0.1% Triton X-100, were used to explore the reversal in flagellar curvature induced by calcium ion. As reported earlier (Lindemann and Goltz, Cell Motil. Cytoskeleton, 10:420-431, 1988), the radius of curvature of the flagellar midpiece of rat sperm is controlled by the free Ca2+ concentration. A reversal of the direction of(More)
The majority of sperm from mice carrying the tw32 haplotype undergo hyperactivation sooner than sperm from +/+ mice of the same strains (Olds-Clarke, Dev Biol 131:475-482, 1989). To investigate the mechanism underlying this abnormal motility, the Ca2+ sensitivity of their flagellar apparatus was compared to that of age- and strain-matched controls using(More)
In this article, the authors describe a collaboration of the Minnesota Population Center (MPC), the U.S. Census Bureau, and the National Archives and Records Administration to restore the lost data from the 1960 Census. The data survived on refrigerated microfilm in a cave in Lenexa, Kansas. The MPC is now converting the data to usable form. Once the(More)
M any companies have proprietary resources and/or data that are indispensable for research, and academics provide the creative fuel for much early-stage research that leads to industrial innovation. It is essential to the health of the research enterprise that collaborations between industrial and university researchers flourish. This system of(More)
