Patel, Anisha I.; Podrabsky, Mary; Hecht, Amelie A.; Morris, Sophie; Yovanovich, Sasha; Walkinshaw, Lina P.; Ritchie, Lorrene; Hecht, Christina – Journal of School Health, 2020
Background: Federal law requires water access in schools where meals are served. Schools report high rates of water accessibility in cafeterias, but observations indicate lower adherence. Although observation is costly, it permits a more detailed assessment of a water source to determine whether it provides effective access that encourages water…

Priyanto, Aan; Rahmawati, Ita; Aji, Mahardika Prasetya – Physics Education, 2020
An experiment using the volumetric flux of a water stream was used to find the initial velocity of the water as it performs parabolic motion. The trajectories were measured with different initial velocities, comparing the maximum height and range values with the theoretical calculations. The closeness of the measured values to the calculations…

Ramborun, V.; Facknath, S.; Lalljee, B. – Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, 2020
Purpose: Small holder farmers are highly vulnerable to changes in climate, as they live on a marginal income, and the crops they depend upon are highly affected by climate. This paper seeks to investigate the impact of climate change on farmers' productivity and their adaptive responses to these impacts. Methodology: One hundred and fifteen…

Scircle, Austin; Cizdziel, James V. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Microplastics (MPs) are small plastic particles (<5 mm in size) that are ubiquitous in the environment and have even been detected in bottled water. In this laboratory experiment, suited for instrumental or environmental chemistry classes, students detect and quantify MPs in bottled water by filtering and staining them with Nile red dye prior…

Oleson, Steven; Cox, Abigail; Liu, Zhongming; Sivasankar, M. Preeti; Lu, Kun-Han – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Objective: Consuming less water (systemic dehydration) has long been thought to dehydrate the vocal folds. An "in vivo," repeated measures study tested the assumption that systemic dehydration causes vocal fold dehydration. Proton density (PD)-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of rat vocal folds was employed to investigate (a)…

Thepnurat, Meechai; Nikonphan, Phuwadon; Mungkhalad, Supanida; Saphet, Parinya; Supawan, Kanitta; Tong-on, Anusorn – Physics Education, 2020
The teaching of wave physics has developed over the years, including devices that demonstrate water waves being used effectively for a long time. However, it was not easy to select and display the wave frequencies. This research had developed a DIY Ripple Tank experiment set using a smartphone application to measure the properties of water waves.…
