Epitaphs and tombstones of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus
Tombstones and their epitaphs yield excellent evidence on the nature of the population of Hellenistic and Roman Cyprus. Analysis of these monuments can reveal who the deceased were, their social classes, ethnic origins, ...
Blare of the Horns
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2018)
The Mizzou Alumni Association's Homecoming parade strides across campus and downtown Columbia, where century-old storefronts set a lively scene for this great American tradition.
Impact of Biotech Grains on Market Structure and Societal Welfare
We quantify the economic impact of introducing genetically modified (GM) crops. Short-run results suggest that it might be optimal to maintain the identity of a greater proportion of non-GM grain than is currently demanded ...
The new quad : trees and grass, no cowpaths
(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1989)
"Calvin Ahlbrandt has a fancy word for the cow paths on Francis Quadrangle. He calls them geodesics. A geodesic, says the professor of mathematics, is a path of shortest length."--Page 12
The mass-loss return from evolved stars to the Large Magellanic Cloud. III. Dust properties for carbon-rich asymptotic giant branch stars
(EDP Sciences, 2010)
We present a radiative transfer model for the circumstellar dust shell around a Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) long-period variable (LPV) previously studied as part of the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) survey of the LMC. OGLE LMC LPV...

Through the last 40 years with the Alumnus
(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1962)
"The fifty-year review of the Alumnus continues. Previous articles covered the first year and the first decade. This article begins with the magazine's eleventh volume--September 1922"--Page 19
Poor man's Plato from Missouri
(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1958)
"As it must be to all men, a spontaneous, unrehearsed evening on the town--a night out with the boys--comes occasionally into the life of Hal Boyle, the columnist."--Page 10
The interface between the stellar wind and interstellar medium around R Cassiopeiae revealed by far-infrared imaging
The circumstellar dust shells of intermediate initial-mass (about 1 to 8 solar masses) evolved stars are generated by copious mass loss during the asymptotic giant branch phase. The density structure of their circumstellar ...
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 1999)
Alumni recall national exposure 25 years later.
HOPE for the Pell? Institutional Effects in the Intersection of Merit-Based and Need-Based Aid
(Southern Economic Journal, 2006)
Prior empirical evidence finds that general enrollment effects of merit-aid programs such as the Georgia Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) scholarship are large and significant, while the effects of need-based ...
A feaste for the sences
(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1981)
"Mizzou's first Madrigal Dinner is tasty and colorful.
Back to campus
(University of Missouri. Alumni Association, 1987)
"Location, location, location--the three most important consideration in real estate."--Page 5

3-D Dynamics of Interactions between Stellar Winds and the Interstellar Medium as Seen by AKARI and Spitzer
Recent far-infrared mapping of mass-losing stars by the AKARI Infrared Astronomy Satellite and Spitzer Space Telescope have suggested that far-infrared bow shock structures are probably ubiquitous around these masslosing stars, especially when...
On the Anomalous Silicate Emission Features of AGNs: A Possible Interpretation Based on Porous Dust
properties of the obscuring dusty torus around AGNs. Compared to that of the Galactic interstellar medium (ISM), the 10 micron silicate emission profile of type 1 AGNs is broadened and has a clear shift of peak position to longer wavelengths. In literature...
Dean of discipline
(MU Alumni Association, University of Missouri, 2003)
"Students either loved 'Black Jack' Matthews or hated him. His career as Mizzou's dean of students spanned the panty raids of the 1950s through the war protests of the 1960s.
Autoimmunization of Ewes Against Pregnancy-associated Glycoproteins Does Not Interfere with the Establishment and Maintenance of Pregnancy
Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAGs) are a large grouping of placental proteins that belong to the aspartic peptidase gene family. Although useful to detect pregnancy in ruminant species, the function of these molecules ...
