Anti-Black Biases in the Black Community
The purpose of this study is to examine the ways in which anti-black biases in language affect black or African American identities. Many paradigms have been created as to how anti-lack biases circulate, but what hasn't been identified is where they stem from. Other authors have explored the ways black biases have affected black identities through media without looking at how these messages spread in interpersonal contexts. Through qualitative interviews and focus groups, I identify that stereotypes and beliefs that link language and appearance circulate in the black/African American community through ideas such as colorism and respectability politics. This, in turn, might negatively impact the way black and African Americans view themselves, as well as other black people. Ultimately, these biases affect how black and or African Americans are viewed in general.

Determinants of NBA Ticket Prices
This study examines the factors that go into the seasonal ticket prices of NBA franchises. A combination of economic, demographic, and performance factors are used as independent variables. Ticket prices from the 2011-2012 NBA season and 2015-2016 NBA Season are used as dependent variables. The regression analysis of both sets of data showed significance. Interestingly enough, many of the independent variables from the study did not carry the same amount of significance in each set of season ticket prices analyzed.

Effects of Earthworm Presence on Soil Fertility
Earthworms are known to be positive soil fertility indicators. Earthworms convert dead organisms and other material into nutrients which are vital for soil fertility. however, too much of anything is bad for any species. In this experiment i'm going to regulate the concentration levels of humic acid and see when the concentrations start too show detrimental effects to the ecosystem. If earthworms convert too much of one nutrient, farmers will have to manually regulate the other nutrient levels in the soil.

Effects of Organic and Inorganic Fertilizers on Soil Quality and Plant Growth
Abstract: The purpose was to determine whether organic or inorganic fertilizers showed the best results for growing legumes in a controlled environment. Field trials were conducted on soil pH, broad bean yield and dry mass using organic and inorganic fertilizers at the greenhouse located at Graceland University. The fertilization treatments consisted of T1, Osmocote Smart-Release Plant Food T2, Dr. Earth Vegetable & Herb Fertilizer with a 5-7-3 Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium ratio derived from fish bone meal, feather meal, kelp meal, alfalfa meal, soft rock phosphate, fish meal, mined potassium sulfate and a control T3. A higher number of legumes per plant (25.45) and plant height (30.48 cm) were obtained from the inorganic fertilizer (T1) than other treatments. Fruit yield and diameter were found statistically significant. No significant difference was observed in the quality of legumes in all 3 treatments. pH of the soil was improved by the application of organic manure (T2).

Efficacy of a Capsaicin-based insecticide on Manduca quinquemaculata pest of Solanum lycopersicum
Pesticides are a necessity to deter pests from harming crops, however the environmental impact of these remains a concern. To gain further insight into the efficacy and environmental impact of Capsaicin as alternative pesticide, varying concentrations of Capsaicin-based insecticide were used to protect the ‘Yellow Canary’ tomato plant (Solanum lycopersicum) from the Tomato Hornworm (Manduca quinquemaculata). The experiment resulted in the Capsaicin-based insecticide more effectively protected Solanum lycopersicum as the concentration increased. The environmental impact caused by Capsaicin has been determined to be similar to other alternative pesticides.

Harriet Tubman: Path to Freedom
Our project, Harriet Tubman: Path to Freedom, was completed as the final project and poster presentation in Professor Glazer’s ‘History of the African Diaspora’ class last Spring. We wanted to choose a strong feminine icon from African American culture, and after further research, we mutually settled on Harriet Tubman because of her strong will-mindedness and determination. This project examines the life — both the tributes and the trials — of Harriet Tubman; from her time serving as a nurse, a spy, and a leader in the Civil War, to Tubman becoming an easily recognizable face on the modern day twenty-dollar bill.

Psychology and Twentieth Century Evangelism
Throughout the twentieth century, evangelists began looking for new ways to increase their attendance and reach a larger audience. By incorporating positive thinking and self-empowerment into their sermons, evangelists such as Robert Schuller and Billy Graham were able to tap into their followers' psyches by putting more focus on the secular rather than the spiritual world. Examination of how evangelists incorporated psychological ideas into their message reveals the persistence of religion in modern psychology during its recent development.

Bug Pollinator Habitat
The number of bugs and pollinating insects residing in urban areas have been drastically reduced due to the use of pesticides, fungicides and herbicides among other bug killers. Manicured lawns and insect-free backyards are encouraging factors for an increase in the amount of sprays and chemicals that are used throughout neighborhoods. By creating a framework that marries an aesthetic architecture with proper habitat elements for a diverse group of arachnids and aphids, the bug pollinator habitat gives a home to bugs and insects outside and away from houses. It also allows bugs to pollinate gardens and plant life within communities, allowing more food and beautiful flowers for fellow critters and people alike to enjoy.

A Shocking History; The History of Electroshock Therapy
Before the 1930's the treatment of mentally ill individuals was very limited and more neglectful than it was helpful. In 1938, neurologist Ugo Cerletti, with the help of psychiatrist Lucio Bini, successfully used electrical stimulation of the brain to induce seizures on a human patient, which successfully provided the patient with relief from his mental illness. This soon became known as “electroconvulsive therapy” and rapidly gained popularity, spreading around the world. Even through skepticism and criticism, this treatment still persisted through and is still in use today

Female Athletes Recover from Forearm Fatigue Faster than Female Non-Athletes as Evidenced by Heart Rate and Grip Strength Recovery
In a professional setting, a therapist needs to know how much time to allow their client to recover from an exercise. There have been few experiments done that look at the ideal recovery time from fatigue. The purpose of this study is to find the difference in fatigue and recovery time in female college-aged athletes and non-athletes. Heart rate recovery will be improved in those with cardiovascular fitness in the first thirty seconds, but after this time period, heart rate recovery will occur at the same rate. Thirty female college students, fifteen athletes and fifteen non-athletes, were subjected to an isometric fatigue test until failure and then tested to see their recovery time. Initial data suggests that athletes do take longer to fatigue, but the non-athletes recover faster.

History of Body Language in Psychology
Body language is a natural trait in animals and humans. Because body language is something inherent to us, there is not an exact date of when it was discovered. However, natural philosophers like Francis Bacon and Charles Darwin were pioneers in the study of what people say with their bodies. Usually, those verbally unsaid things are revealed by the body postures and movements. The first studies on body languages were based animals’ postures, and those discoveries led Darwin and later researchers like Desmond Morris to acknowledge body language as a human feature as well.

The advancement of social media generates questions about how it impacts the development of identities. Concomitantly, as these platforms develop, their importance for branding and marketing also grows. Professional athletes rely on social media platforms to develop their personal and professional brand. In the process, they're inevitably held to a standard in how they interact on those spaces. In this qualitative research, I analyze how athletes stratigically brand themselves through social media posts, pictures, tweets, etc. in order to promote fashion brands while reinforcing their professional identities. Overall, athletes employ a mix of PR-type as well seemingly personal forms of communication while promoting fashion brands.

Mass Shooters Portrayal in the Media
In recent years, mass shootings have been frequent and sadly the characteristics attributed to shooters have been portrayed unjustly through the media. When labelling these mass shooters, the adjectives that are used to describe them are vastly different. Minority groups are portrayed as animals, thugs, terrorists, and other names. While, white mass shooters are portrayed as 'mentally ill'. There is a stark difference between the two racial groups portrayal throughout the media when it comes to this topic, my proposal is that these public labels only increase hysteria about terrorism and amplifies that the negative connotations of minorities and misrepresents them.

Prevalence of antibiotic resistant Staphylococcus aureus on campus surfaces
Staphylococcus aureus is found on healthy humans and can cause minor skin infections to life threatening diseases. There are less treatment options due to increased resistance to antibiotics. Skin-contact surfaces in the gym are known to be potential reservoirs for transmission of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The aim of the study was to analyze antibiotic resistance genes in S. aureus isolated from environmental surfaces in campus classrooms and gyms.

Through examining several variables, the variation in the number of games that 2016-17 NFL rookies played for the season is 82.3% explained. It was determined that a player must be healthy to play in the game, contribute to past wins, and play at an impact position. Having a lot of teammates playing the same position doesn't seem to be a huge factor, just as draft position has little effect on games played.

This paper analyzes the hisotrical, tranformed usage and portrayals of clowns in mass media through movies. The meaning of these figures has changed dramatically over time, from sources of entertainment to sources of horror. Specifically, this paper focuses on the infamous IT clown, also known as Pennywise, as the contemporary representation of the horrifying clown. In IT, Pennywise strikes societal and personal fears into the children of Derry. Ultimatley, the film uses clowns as vehicles to address issues involving child endangerment, bullying, sexual abuse, and racism within and beyond the town of Derry.

Independently, research was collaborated to focus on nursing homes and other opportunities that are similar to nursing homes for elderly with a little more range of independence. Individually, there was research studied on views and reasoning’s on why some elderly enter nursing homes to begin with. Research went into detail on the family situations and family views as well as the abusive situations that occur throughout nursing homes. Together, we discussed possibilities on how to improve the nursing homes and to avoid some controllable situations. Also, the ways that staffing can be updated and properly trained to better fit the needs of the elderly who reside in their facilities.

Pre-Competition Anxiety
Pre-competition anxiety is a very normal process in athletes' life and it will impact on the athlete’s performance either in a positive way, increasing their performance level or in a negative way, making the athlete perform very poorly. This correlational study predicted that positive Self-Talk would decrease the anxiety before competing and the negative reaction to imperfection would increase the anxiety. To measure these variables, this study used the HEXACO-60 for reaction to imperfection, Sport Competition Anxiety Test (SCAT) for anxiety in athletes and the Self-Talk Scale for the levels of self-talk. Predicted results will be discussed further on.

Should the United States Leave Afghanistan?
Since 2001, United States has been involved fighting Taliban and other terrorist groups with the aim to provide a peaceful nation for Afghans. However, the active presence of different terrorist groups in various provinces of Afghanistan states suggests that the U.S. mission to bring peace to Afghans has been unsuccessful. For Afghanistan to be peaceful, the cooperation with United States is vital. In this paper, I investigate why it is necessary for Afghans to have a supportive ally like the United States and why the presence of the U.S. troops is fundamental in this critical situation. Furthermore, I also analyze how the U.S. government could assist in the fight against corruption in Afghanistan, offer support to the Afghan government to fight the Taliban, and finally bringing the Taliban into peace negotiation through the Pakistani government.. I conclude that if the United States government does not have a clear foreign and military strategy toward the war in Afghanistan, the war will cause the civilians to be the continues sacrifice and humanitarian crisis will once rise again.

Change in Wealth Inequality and Its Effect on Economy
The impact of wealth inequality has always been a major topic for many economists through history. Various circumstances in economic history have played a major role in the emergence of the interest in the distribution of wealth in society. Wealth inequality is a major topic for many different economies around the world and it has different significant effects on economic growth of those economies. There are many reasons that contribute to wealth inequality and these reasons can be very different for many countries around the world. Wealth inequality has been a major concern especially for those countries that have a big economic impact in overall economy around the world. The modern debate about wealth inequality began in the late 19th century. It’s important for people to understand possible negative and positive effects of wealth inequality, especially now when the level of wealth inequality is dramatically rising in many rich countries. This paper aims to examine different factors causing wealth inequality and possible outcomes of wealth inequality in terms of economic growth.

The Effects of Athletics on Communication Habits
The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between communication skills and athletics. Specifically, I investigate the effect that athletic involvement has on communication practices and skills. I ask what the positive and/or negative communication habits are that may have been formed in athletes as a result of their involvement in sports. In order to answer this research question, I utilize qualitative, semi-structured interviews with 8 student-athletes. Preliminary results suggest that while communicating with coaches and other teammates, student-athletes have learned how to communicate with people in authority positions, as well as communication that favors team-building and leadership abilities.

Hip Hop's Impact on the Outlook of the African American Woman.
Research Questions include; RQ1) How African American women are portrayed overall in hip hop music videos? RQ2)How are male performers with female background dancers portrayed compared to female performers in hip hop music videos from the year 2017-18? RQ3) How are sexism, misogyny, and women empowerment displayed lyrically and in the music videos? Preliminary results suggest that there is a clear distinction between videos/lyrics that men compared to women are the performers. For example, male performers are usually portrayed as having power or fame if they have alcohol/drugs, multiple partially dressed women dancing around them, and material possessions (e.g. big house, cars, fancy clothes, etc.) in these music videos and throughout the lyrical analysis. However, with women performers, you may see them dancing and some were seen using their female physical assets to attract more viewers and to portray themselves as female performers. My analysis will be covering how African American women performers are represented compared to black male performers in the hip hop industry.

It's Alive: Allegorical Connections Between Oppression, Literature, and Frankenstein
The essay examines connections between Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein and socioeconomic oppression. Informed by historical references and building upon existing critiques of Frankenstein, the essay seeks to uncover the metaphorical relationship between the story and its symbolic representation of class struggle between the proletariat and bourgeoisie. Though previous scholarly work regarding Frankenstein has offered forth mainly biblical interpretations, it is the essay’s contention that Frankenstein serves as an allegory for the ways in which Frankenstein’s monster is an embodiment of the bourgeoisie-created poverty and bondage under the system of capitalism. Additionally, the essay argues that, while viewing the story through a critical lens, the character of Dr. Frankenstein acts as a metaphor for the capitalist process of irresponsible production.

Explosive cyclic molecules
Highly energetic molecules have been researched in science for many years to be used as fuels, explosives and fireworks. To create these molecules, the starting material needs to contain very weak bonds that can form very strong bonds when undergoing combustion. The molecules of interest have been selected due to their odd and highly strained bond angles and the fact that they have never been studied for their thermochemical properties. This study was done to determine if these molecules have high energy densities.

Military Deployment: Effects on Parent and Child Relationship
Abstract

This study examines the effects of a parental military deployment on the child and parent relationship. Specifically, it focuses on the effects during, and after the deployment, as well as the long-term effects on the parent and child’s relationship. Thus far, the literature on the effects of a military deployment have been studied in children during and after the deployment. However, there is a gap in the research regarding the long-term effects on the parent and child relationship, particularly in regards to communication patterns. Koerner and Fitzpatrick’s Family Communication Patterns theory provides a framework to understand families’ conversation orientation and the long-term effects the deployment will have on these families. The researcher conducted seven, semi-structured, interviews with students who have experienced a parental military deployment in their lifetime. Preliminary results suggest that the deployment has negative long-term effects on the child’s communication patterns, but positive effects on the relationship they have with their family.

Keywords: deployment, family communication, family’s conversation orientation

Broken Perceptions: An Artist Talk
Broken Perceptions is a window into inconsistencies of human nature, identity and behavior which uncover the distinctions between our true self and our social self. As human beings we strive to achieve societal normalcies and adapt our outward appearance to create an illusion that reflects the standards of outer society. The distorted, unclear images of my collection represent the internal and external conflict of personal identity. Consequently, what is left are the broken perceptions of not only ourselves, but of human nature and the innate need to be who we are.

The Effect of Online Dating on Contemporary Romantic Relationships
The research, still on going at this point, concerns itself with the function and role that online dating plays in contemporary times. The intent of the study is to discover how online dating affects the perception, structure, and function of romantic relationships. This research is developed through qualitative interviews and supported by texts and resources that ascribe meaning to online dating’s repercussions. I interviewed 10 subjects who have experience with online dating sites/apps. Using Uncertainty Reduction Theory and Social Penetration Theory, I code qualitative data and interpret meaning. The ongoing analysis of data will determine not whether there is an effect, but what kind of effect this new, and growing, phenomenon has on dating culture.

The History of Factious Disorder, & a Little on Conversion Disorder
The Factitious disorder is a complex disorder whose historical path leads from malingering to hysteria, to Munchhausen Syndrome, and ultimately to its current characterization as Factitious Disorder. Many historical documents trace the different ways that this strange desire to become sick or to be perceived as sick is expressed in medical theory, in literature, and in culture. Particularly interesting are the lengths to which people will go to substantiate these ailments.Among the individuals involved in the definition of this disorder are British psychoanalysts, among whom Karin Stephen (1890-1953), Virginia Woolf’s sister-in-law, played a prominent role.
