This study was an extension of the classic Fenz and Epstein (1967) parachuting field study and examined differences in heart rate, anxiety, and hardiness between experienced and novice skydivers. Twenty-two skydivers (11 experienced, 11 novice) completed the Dispositional Resilience Scale (Bartone, Ursano, Wright, & Ingraham, 1989; hardiness (control, commitment, challenge))and ...
Rhind, D.J.A. - - 2012
The present study explored whether there are fundamental differences in how athletes from team and individual sports view the quality of the relationship with their coach. A total of 699 athletes from team (N = 199) and individual (N = 500) sports completed the direct (Jowett & Ntoumanis, 2004) and ...
Lumpkin, Kelly - - 2012
The purpose of this study was to examine evidence of work addiction among college coaches. Participants included 16 NCAA Division 1 sports coaches (M age = 38.9, SD = 6.9) located in the U.S.A. Structured personal interviews addressed the coaches 'work habits and thinking patterns. Using inductive content analysis, seven ...
Eisenbarth, Chris - - 2012
The purpose of this study was to determine whether an athlete's tendency to define success in a particular way (i. e., achievement goal orientation) related to his or her tendency to perceive competition as threatening (i. e., competitive trait anxiety). It was hypothesized that athletes endorsing primarily an ego orientation ...
Drees, Mandi - - 2012
Mental toughness is critical for achieving athletic success (Loehr, 1994) and appears to be developed through experience (Jones, Hanton, & Connaughton, 2007). The purpose of this study was to examine whether the mental toughness abilities of high school wrestlers change over a competitive season and to empirically examine potential relationships ...
Devonport, Tracey - - 2012
The present study explored the effects of unexpected loss of water supply on coping strategies used among a sample of habitual exercisers. Nine volunteer participants completed semi--structured interviews within a week of resumed water supply. Results indicated that all participants reported modifying their exercise regimen during the period of water ...
De Palo, - - 2012
The aim of the present work was to investigate how colour changes of foal meat can vary after thawing out in relation to the slaughtering age of the horses and to the post-thawing time. Eighteen Italian Heavy Draught Horse (IHDH) foals were used for the trial. They were subdivided in ...
Ji, Eun - - 2012
This study was conducted to evaluate methane (C[H.sub.4]) and nitrous oxide ([N.sub.2]O) emissions from livestock agriculture in 16 local administrative districts of Korea from 1990 to 2030. National Inventory Report used 3 yr averaged livestock population but this study used 1 yr livestock population to find yearly emission fluctuations. Extrapolation ...
Parka, J.C. - - 2012
This study was performed to determine the effects of dietary fat sources, i.e., beef tallow, soybean oil, olive oil and coconut oil (each 3% in feed), on the growth performance, meat quality and gene expression in growing-finishing pigs. A total of 72 crossbred pigs (Landrace x Large White x Duroc) ...
Huang, Q. - - 2012
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of chemical composition of wheat shorts and red dog on energy and amino acid digestibility in growing pigs and to establish prediction models to estimate their digestible (DE) and metabolizable (ME) energy content and as well as their standardized ileal digestible (SID) ...
Yan, L. - - 2012
A total of 96 growing pigs ((LandracexYorkshire)xDuroc; BW = 26.58 [+ or -] 1.41 kg) were used in a 6-wk feeding trail to evaluate the effects of fermented chlorella (FC) supplementation on growth performance, nutrient digestibility, blood characteristics, fecal microbial and fecal noxious gas content in growing pigs. Pigs were ...
Xu, F.Z. - - 2012
This trial was performed to study the effects of replacing soybean meal (SBM) with fermented rapeseed meal (RSM) on growth performance, serum biochemistry variable and intestinal morphology of broilers. A total of 640 d-old Arbor Acres broiler chicks were randomly allocated to 4 dietary treatments, 4 pens per treatment and ...
Ngoc, T.T.B. - - 2012
The effect of genotype, fibre level and fibre source on gut morphology, environment and microflora was studied using 18 Mong Cai (MC) and 18 Landrace x Yorkshire (LY) pigs, aged around 60 d. The diets were based on maize, rice bran, soybean meal, fish meal and soybean oil, and cassava ...
Reddy, P.B. - - 2012
A growth and digestibility study was conducted using Osmanabadi goat male kids by feeding complete diets in the form of mash or expander extruded pellets containing different levels of red gram (Cajanus cajan) straw (RGS). Two iso- nitrogenous complete diets were prepared by incorporating RGS at 35% and 50% levels. ...
Nogalski, Zenon - - 2012
We investigated the effect of the amount of body condition loss in the dry period and early lactation in 42 high- yielding Holstein-Friesian cows on milk yield and the share of fatty acids in milk fat. Energy reserves were estimated based on the body condition scoring (BCS) and backfat thickness ...
Nagamine, Itsuki - - 2012
Okinawan Awamori is produced by fermenting steamed indica rice with black mold, yeast, and water. Awamori-pressed lees is a by-product of the Awamori production process. Tofu lees is a by-product of the Tofu production process. This research consisted of two experiments conducted to elucidate whether or not dried Awamori-pressed lees ...
Hue, Khuc - - 2012
The experiment studied the effect of harvesting frequencies and varieties on yield, chemical composition and hydrogen cyanide content in cassava foliage. Foliage from three cassava varieties, K94 (very bitter), K98-7 (medium bitter) and a local (sweet), were harvested in three different cutting cycles, at 3, 6 and 9 months; 6 ...
Mulligan, Brendan - - 2012
The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of a reported p53 inhibitor, pifithrin-[alpha] (PFT-[alpha]), on preimplantation porcine in vitro fertilized (IVF) embryo development in culture. Treatment of PFT-[alpha] was administered at both early (0 to 48 hpi), and later stages (48 to 168 hpi) of preimplantation development, ...
Lee, Y.-M. - - 2012
The purpose of this study was to detect significant SNPs for blood components that were related to immunity using high single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) density panels in a Korean native pig (KNP) x Yorkshire (YK) cross population. A reciprocal design of KNP x YK produced 249 [F.sub.2] individuals that were ...
Choy, Yun - - 2012
The objective of this study was to estimate economic weights of Hanwoo carcass traits that can be used to build economic selection indexes for selection of seedstocks.

Cystic echinococcosis (CE), one of the world's most geographically widespread diseases, still represents a considerable economic and public health significance, although a variety of methods has been used to control the disease. It has been demonstrated that genetic factors, especially variations in MHC loci, can influence the outcome of CE ...

Crosses between Korean and Landrace pigs have revealed a large quantitative trait loci (QTL) region for fat deposition in a region (89 cM) of porcine chromosome 4 (SSC4). To more finely map this QTL region and identify candidate genes for this trait, comparative mapping of pig and human chromosomes was ...
