Sacred States: Protest Between Church and State in a Postsecular Age

Cameron Montgomery
In the age of mass information, globalization, and peer-to-peer social networks, the traditional markers of identity and elective affinities, particularly those of religion and nationalism, are shifting in relation to contemporary trends. The field of Religious Studies has been influenced by a series of ‘post’s: postsecular, postmodern, postcolonial, and post 9/11. The rise of revolutionary religious movements internationally is a hallmark characteristic of the postsecular age. Participants in these movements are variously characterized as religious...

Context Matters: Work, Health, and Quality of Life of Regulated Home-Based Childcare Workers in Quebec & Ontario

Mariam Stitou
Home Based Childcare (HBC) workers have demanding work conditions, enjoy no or few social benefits, are paid less than the national average wage, and many of them intend to leave this occupation (Doherty, Lero, Goelman, Tougas, Lagrange, 2000). The available studies on early childcare workers in Canada have often excluded HBC workers from their analyses or grouped them with other types of early childcare workers in their analyses, which make it difficult to tackle the...

The Social Construction of Addiction and Sexual Deviancy: A Comparative Analysis of the Experts in Policy Debate

Haillie O'Brien
Sexual deviancy and addiction are two concepts that have undergone considerable development in the way in which they are constructed. Since the 1800s both concepts have come to the attention of the medical field, psychological field and the criminal justice system which have made numerous attempts to regulate and treat them within these realms. By using the lens of social construction and Spector and Kitsuse’s theory of social problems, this project explores how experts describe...

Access to Tuberculosis Treatment for Migrant and Refugee Populations in Tak province, Thailand

Naomi Tschirhart
Objectives: The aim of this project was to examine tuberculosis (TB) treatment access among migrant and refugee populations in a Thai border province. To study TB control from a wider perspective, we also sought to understand how migrant and refugee cases are enumerated in the public health surveillance system and explored treatment providers’ responsiveness to treatment barriers. Methods: We used a concurrent mix-methods design with an overarching qualitative emphasis and an embedded smaller quantitative survey....

High-resolution record of surface seawater CO2 content from December 2014 to April 2016 collected in Hyacinthe Bay, British Columbia, Canada

Wiley Evans, Alex Hare & Katie Pocock
Quadra Island, at the northern terminus of the Salish Sea, has been a site for shore-based and high-resolution measurement of surface seawater CO2 content since December 2014. Measurements of in situ temperature, salinity, and CO2 partial pressure are made near-continuously from a seawater sample line with an intake 50 m from shore and at a depth of 1 m in Hyacinthe Bay on the eastern side of Quadra Island. The effort to collect these data...

SLAP field data sampling: Manitoba [Canada] October 30 to November 12, 2015 dataset

Aaron Berg'S Research Group
The Soil Moisture Research Group in the Department of Geography, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences, University of Guelph, collects soil samples from various fields in Manitoba, Canada for soil temperature and dielectric constant/soil moisture measurements. The POGO probe collects soil temperature measurements from the surface of the site, 2.5cm, 5cm, and 10cm into the site. This set includes data from October 30, 2015 to November 13, 2015.

Preventing Childhood Drownings in Backyard, Residential Pools: Understanding Stakeholders' Roles in Knowledge Mobilization and the Creation of a 2017 Protable Pool Safety Social Marketing Campaign in Ottawa, ON

Kylie Valentino
In this first manuscript, the research purpose was to explore stakeholders perceived roles in mobilizing pool safety knowledge and to understand the barriers associated with the uptake of pool safety initiatives. Six water safety experts were interviewed to gain insight into their perceptions and diverse roles. Using grounded theory, it was determined that stakeholders perceive they have a role in mobilizing pool safety knowledge. Three overarching themes emerged from the data which aligned with a...

d-Limonene, a Renewable Component for Polymer Synthesis

Shanshan Ren
d-Limonene (Lim) was used in various polymer formulations to achieve a more sustainable polymerization. Lim is a renewable and essentially non-toxic compound, derived from citrus fruit peels, that may replace some of the many toxic and fossil-based chemicals used in polymer synthesis. Bulk free-radical polymerizations of n-butyl acrylate (BA) with Lim were performed to investigate Lim co-polymerization kinetics and estimate the monomer reactivity ratios, important parameters in the prediction of copolymer composition. Kinetic modeling of...

The Unexpected Experience: Positive Minority Perceptions and Experiences of Policing

Geremy Bediako
For as long as Black men and police officers have co-existed in North America, tensions have persisted between the two groups. Issues of racial profiling, racial discrimination and other forms of racism have plagued Black men’s experiences and perceptions. Currently, tensions between these two groups have been high resulting in the emergence of social activist groups, such as Black Lives Matter. Most of what is known about race and policing tends to focus on Black...

Toxicokinetics and Bioaccumulation of Polycyclic Aromatic Compounds in Wood Frog Tadpoles (Lithobates sylvaticus) Exposed to Athabasca Oil Sands Sediment

Julie Bilodeau
Many polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) are toxic, carcinogenic, and mutagenic. As a result, their effects on aquatic biota and ecosystems are of great concern. Research on PACs in aquatic biota often overlooks the role of amphibians, alkylated PACs, and sediment as an uptake route. In order to study the accumulation and toxicokinetics of PACs following sediment and aqueous exposure, and to compare the bioaccumulation potentials of parent and alkyl PACs, two accumulation-elimination experiments using wood...
