Antidepressant Use During Pregnancy
(Family Physicians Inquiries Network, 2011-05)
There are no studies that have shown any antidepressant to be absolutely safe for use during any stage of pregnancy. The use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) during ...
Cross Pollination from Genetically Engineered Corn: Wind Transport and Seed Source
Pollen transport from genetically engineered corn was evaluated by testing corn offspring from nearby cornfields. Harvested corn, sown in greenhouse flats, was sprayed with glyphosate at second leaf stage. Corn resistant ...
(Family Physicians Inquiries Network, 2009-11)
This issue of eMedRef provides information to clinicians on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapeutics of ectopic pregnancy.
The Estimated Economic Impact of Recombinant Bovine Somatotropin on New York Dairy Farms for the Years 2994 through 1997
Data from New York dairy farms for the years 1994 through 1997 were used to estimate whether recombinant bovine Somatotropin (rbST) generated profits for adopters. Results show that the estimated profit impact of rbST, ...
What treatments are safe and effective for mild to moderate hypertension in pregnancy?
(Family Physicians Inquiries Network, 2004-06)
There is considerable debate concerning the treatment of mild to moderate essential hypertension during pregnancy. Evidence suggests that because of the potential risk of fetal intrauterine growth restriction, treatment ...
Concentration, Contracting and Competition: Problems in Using the Packers and Stockyards Act to Supplement Antitrust
(Competition Policy International, 2010-04)
Consolidation and increased concentration in the agrifood sector over the past two decades, combined with an increased use of alternative marketing agreements in the poultry and livestock industries, have fueled concerns ...
Using the monthly classification of global SSTs and 500 HPA height to predict temperature and precipitation regimes one to two season in advance for the Mid-Mississippi Region
(National Weather Association, 2008-07)
Using the results from previous studies of the interannual variability of local mean monthly temperature and precipitation by this group, long range forecasts were generated for summer and winter season temperatures and ...
Evaluation of the Agronomic, Environmental, Economic, and Coexistence Impacts Following the Introduction of GM Canola to Australia (2008-2010)
(University of Missouri, College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, 2014)
Despite genetically modified (GM) canola receiving Australian regulatory approval in 2003, commercial production did not occur until 2008 due to concerns relating to coexistence. Following commercial release, a three-year ...
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
(Family Physicians Inquiries Network, 2010-01)
This issue of eMedRef provides information to clinicians on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapeutics of polycystic ovarian syndrome.
The producer benefits of herbicide-resistant canola
The commercial sale of herbicide resistant (HR) canola has raised questions about the benefits of this new technology for seed and chemical companies, farmers, consumers, and other players in the supply chain. In this ...
Regulation of rbST in the US
In the United States (US) and European Union (EU) the regulatory and commercialization process for recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) had widely differing outcomes. Although the regulatory process in both locations was ...
Global Impact of Biotech Crops: Environmental Effects, 1996-2008
This article updates the assessment of the impact commercialized agricultural biotechnology is having on global agriculture from an environmental perspective. It focuses on the impact of changes in pesticide use and ...
Man, Muse, and Story: Psychohistorical Patterns in Oral Epic Poetry
Early studies of oral epic literature, that is, of epic literature composed without the aid of writing within a continuous tradition of some antiquity, focused quite logically and understandably on the somewhat mysterious ...
Using multiple data sources to investigate foraging niche partitioning in sympatric obligate avian scavengers
As carrion feeders competing for a limited and ephemeral resource, avian scavengers are ideal model organisms to study mechanisms of niche partitioning. Previous work has focused on observations of species' interactions ...
An Anatomy of a Cartel: The National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933 and the Compliance Crisis of 1934
(Research in Economic History, 2008)
This paper explores the nature and causes of the cartel compliance crisis that befell the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) one year after its passage in 1933. We employ a simple game-theoretic model of the NIRA's ...
Interannual and interdecadal variability in the predominant Pacific region SST anomaly patterns and their impact on climate in the mid-Mississippi valley region
(Centro Ciencias Atmosfera UNAM, 2007-02)
Previous research has demonstrated that Pacific Region SSTs and SST anomalies can be separated into seven general synoptic classifications (“clusters”) (A-G). Clusters B and G (C, D, and F) [A and E] were shown to be ...
Post-Newtonian Reference Frames for Advanced Theory of the Lunar Motion and a New Generation of Lunar Laser Ranging
We construct a set of post-Newtonian reference frames for a comprehensive study of the orbital dynamics and rotational motion of Moon and Earth by means of lunar laser ranging (LLR) with the precision of one millimeter. ...
Conservation tillage, herbicide use, and genetically engineered crops in the United States: the case of soybeans
This study examines the extent to which adopting herbicide-tolerant (HT) soybeans affects conservation tillage practices and herbicide use. The model is estimated using a state-level panel dataset extending across 12 major ...
