U(1)_B-L Sneutrino Dark Matter Detection with the IceCube Neutrino Telescope [article]

Katherine Richardson-McDaniel
2009 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the prospects for indirect detection of right-handed sneutrino dark matter at the IceCube neutrino telescope in a U(1)_B-L extension of the MSSM. The capture and annihilation of sneutrinos inside the Sun reach equilibrium, and the flux of produced neutrinos is governed by the sneutrino-proton elastic scattering cross section, which has an upper bound of 8 × 10^-9 pb from the Z^' mass limits in the B-L model. Despite the absence of any spin-dependent contribution, the muon event

These subsequently decay to neutrinos with 100 event rates are too small to be detected for the standard halo model irrespective of an enhanced sneutrino annihilation cross section that can explain the recent PAMELA data. For modified velocity distributions, the Earth muon events increase substantially and can be greater than the IceCube detection threshold of 12 events km^-2 yr^-1. However, this only leads to a mild increase of about 30 events. The number of muon events from the Sun can be as large as roughly 100 events km^-2 yr^-1 for this model.

Bank Consolidation and Small Business Lending within Local Markets

Katherine Samolyk, Christopher A. Richardson
2003 Social Science Research Network  
This paper uses the relatively new CRA small business loan data to examine how bank consolidation has been related to small business lending within a bank's local community-particularly to borrowers having more modest economic prospects, such as very small businesses or those located in low-and moderate-income areas. The results of multivariate tests indicate that during the late 1990s, banks experiencing merger activity-including banks that did not themselves merge but were part of active
more » ... ng companies-had systematically lower small business loan growth than inactive banks. But, the effects appear to reflect a general decline in small business lending rather than a shift away from lending to lower-income areas or to very small businesses. At the local level, merger-related effects are more pronounced when the merger activity increases the local market share of the surviving bank or its parent holding company. Thus, our results indicate that, at least in terms of the quantity of credit, the effects of bank consolidation do not appear to fall disproportionately on the businesses having more modest prospects. On the other hand, the market-level analysis indicates that standard antitrust concerns about the provision of local banking services still seem to apply in small business credit markets.

Synthesis and restriction enzyme analysis of oligodeoxyribonucleotides containing the anti-cancer drug 2', 2'-difluoro-2'-deoxycytidine

1992 Nucleic Acids Research  
The anti-cancer drug 2',2'-difluoro-2'-deoxycytidine (dFdC) is internally incorporated into DNA in vitro. To determine the effects of this incorporation on DNA structure and function, the 3-cyanoethyl phosphoramidite of dFdC was synthesized and oligodeoxyribonucleotides containing dFdC were made using automated solid phase DNA synthesis techniques. Extension of the coupling time was required to achieve high coupling efficiency, suggesting a significant reduction in the rate of phosphotriester

This reduction is similar to the effects seen with arabinofuranosylcytidine (ara-C) but small compared to the reductions caused by base analogues and phosphothioates. Insertion of dFdC into the BamHI recognition sequence, but not 5' to the cut site, did not alter the rate of cutting/recognition. The presence of a single dFdC reduced the Tm's of oligomers by 2 -40C, depending on sequence and location. These results demonstrate that, once incorporated into DNA, dFdC does not greatly alter recognition between DNA and restriction enzymes; however, it does significantly alter duplex stability.

Managing employee stress and wellness in the new millennium

2017 Journal of Occupational Health Psychology  
Wellness is generally used to maintain a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. Employee Wellness Programs are created and maintained to encourage physical, mental and emotional health. A Successful wellness program is how well the program helps employees to change negative habits and create and maintain a healthy lifestyle. For current research work three types of industries viz. IT, Non IT and IT enabled will be considered. A common

As today there is cut throat competition, stress levels are more alarmingly rising and hence it is difficult for the employees to maintain their work life balance. Hence the organizations should focus on nurturing the employees and care their most valued asset which is the employee.

A seasonal copepod 'lipid pump' promotes carbon sequestration in the deep North Atlantic [article]

Sigrun H. Jonasdottir, Andre W. Visser, Katherine Richardson, Michael R. Heath
2015 bioRxiv   pre-print
Estimates of carbon flux to the deep oceans are essential for our understanding for global carbon budgets. We identify an important mechanism, the lipid pump, that has been unrecorded in previous estimates. The seasonal lipid pump is highly efficient in sequestering carbon in the deep ocean. It involves the vertical transport and respiration of carbon rich compounds (lipids) by hibernating zooplankton. Estimates for one species, the copepod Calanus finmarchicus overwintering in the North

The efficiency of the lipid pump derives from a near complete decoupling between nutrient and carbon cycling and directly transports carbon through the meso-pelagic with very little attenuation to below the permanent thermocline. Consequently the seasonal transport of lipids by migrating zooplankton is overlooked in estimates of deep ocean carbon sequestration by the biological pump.
