Won By A Certain Labour: A Conversation On The While Of Things

Sheila M. Ross & David W. Jardine
This conversation began when one of us (Jardine 2008) discovered a published article by the other (Ross 2004) and ended up with an e-mailed dissertation (Ross 2003). This lead to a decision to work together on our mutual interests in Hans-Georg Gadamer’s idea of Verweilen—an experience of time (and a place of cultivation) involving whiling, tarrying, gathering—threaded with our interests in education and the work of teaching and learning. In the spirit of the topic...

Systematic investigations into the North American Crepis agamic complex

Christopher James Sears
The North American Crepis (Asteraceae) agamic complex was established as an important early plant system for the systematic study of polyploid agamic complexes. Research conducted over 70 years ago determined that this western North American group consists of seven species comprising diploids and polyploids, and two species comprising only polyploids. Geographical parthenogenesis is pronounced with six of the seven diploids having restricted ranges in either central Washington or northern California. Much of the historic range...

Photochemical and themal reaction of crotonaldehyde and 3-butenal

Stylianos Sifniades
In the first part of this work the thermal reaction [Formula omitted] was studied thermodynamically and kinetically in the gas phase and at the temperature range 150 to 210°C. The equilibrium composition was found to be very unfavourable to 3-butenal which constitutes 0.35% of the mixture at 150°C and 1.04% at 210°C. The enthalpy of the reaction was estimated to be 7.20 ± 0.09 kcal/ mole. In the kinetic study both the forward and reverse...

Stratifying multi-parameter persistent homology

Nina Otter
In their paper "The theory of multidimensional persistence", Carlsson and Zomorodian write "Our study of multigraded objects shows that no complete discrete invariant exists for multidimensional persistence. We still desire a discriminating invariant that captures persistent information, that is, homology classes with large persistence." In this talk I will discuss how tools from commutative algebra give computable invariants able to capture homology classes with large persistence. Specifically, multigraded associated primes provide a stratification of the...

Factors associated with recurrent hospitalization of psychiatric patients

Joan Marion Brumwell
The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate factors associated with recurrent hospitalization of psychiatric patients. A set of selected characteristics was used to describe and compare the 401 patients whose first psychiatric hospitalization occurred at the Health Sciences Centre - Psychiatric Unit, University of British Columbia in 1976 or 1977. Sixty-seven of these patients returned at least once to this Psychiatric Unit only within two years of their first hospitalization. Data gathered from...

A linguistic questionnaire for British Columbia : a plan for a postal survey of dialectal variation in B.C., with an account of recent research

James Polson
The object of this study is to provide a postal questionnaire that may be used for investigating dialectal variation in the province of British Columbia. Such a questionnaire is necessary to provide the groundwork for more intensive and systematic investigation at a later date. The questionnaire will test items for a future questionnaire, establish the dialectal status of B.C. English, and locate the dialectal regions of B.C. The questionnaire draws heavily on work sheets and...

Variations in the persistence of subjective culture : cross-ethnic views of characterstics of persons

Sheena Ann Selkirk
Research investigating the problems experienced and the advantages enjoyed by the minority-culture child in the North American schoolroom has focused both on changing the child and on changing the school environment. Little attention has been paid to the more basic question of differences in subjective aspects of culture across ethnic grouping and generation of residence in Canada. In addition, little appears to be known about the variability in subjective culture across levels of variables like...

Local statistics of particle systems with repulsive interaction

Martin Venker
We consider interacting particle systems on the real line which generalize beta-ensembles by allowing for different pair interactions. We show how these models can be represented as averages of beta-ensembles with random external fields. Particular emphasis is put on models resembling the beta=2-ensembles where we present detailed asymptotics in the bulk and at the edge. In the bulk, these asymptotics allow to consider empirical spacings of unfolded particles. At the edge, we describe the gradual...

A feasibility study for the private development of a retirement village in Metropolitan Vancouver

Bruce Geoffrey Boaden
The purpose of this study is to examine the nature and extent of housing demand in Metropolitan Vancouver attributable to people over the age of fifty-five. This is to be done in order to verify whether or not the private development of a specified retirement village in Vancouver would be financially feasible and prove to be a profitable investment. In this study, a retirement village is defined to be a planned, low density development of...

Kootenay Mail

The Kootenay Mail was published in Revelstoke, in the Columbia-Shuswap region of southeastern British Columbia, and ran from April 1894 to December 1905. The Mail was published by the Revelstoke Printing and Publishing Company, and its longest-serving editor was J. Livingstone Haig. In 1906, the Mail merged with the Revelstoke Herald to form the Mail-Herald, a staunchly conservative paper that eventually folded due in part to competition from a more liberal competitor, the Revelstoke Review.
