    The purpose of this study was to investigate how students in Grade Five and Six generate explanation for scientific phenomena and how they evaluate the quality of these explanations. In part, this was done by analyzing the ...
  • McLaughlin, Patricia; White, Nick; King, Kate; Hann, Robert G.; Williams, Robert J.; Schopflocher, Donald Peter; West, Beverly L.; Flexhaug, Trevor (Ontario Problem Gambling Research CentreHealth SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    This Front-Line Manual, written mainly by and from the perspective of the QLS front-line staff describes how they developed, tested, and put into practice the methodology to achieve their extremely high retention rate. ...
  • Hagen, Brad F.; Gallagher, Elaine M. (Perspectives: Journal of the Gerontological Nursing AssociationSchool of Health SciencesUniversity of LethbridgeUniversity of Victoria, 1997)
    This article describes an alternative approach to evaluating a program involving support groups for family caregivers, using focus group interviews conducted three months following a 10-week program. This was one component ...
  • Duckworth, Nadine (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Education, c2010Education, 2010)
    Members of eco-communities have reported high levels of both Quality of Life and Social Capital, while at the same time, living in a way that is in harmony with the environment. Quality of Life scores indicate residents’ ...
  • Das, Saurya; Vagenas, Elias C. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of LethbridgeAcademy of Athens, 2015-12-22)
    We argue that a quantum aether is consistent with the principle of relativity and can provide an economical way of having an invariant quantum gravity or Planck scale. We also show that it may change the effective scale ...
  • Basilakos, Spyros; Das, Saurya; Vagenas, Elias C. (Arts and ScienceDepartment of Physics and AstronomyAcademy of AthensUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016-01-19)
    We investigate the effects of Quantum Gravity on the Planck era of the universe. In particular, using different versions of the Generalized Uncertainty Principle and under specific conditions we find that the main Planck ...
  • Das, Saurya; Ramadevi, P.; Yajnik, U. A.; Sule, A. (ElsevierUniversity of New BrunswickIndian Institute of Technology Bombay, 2003)
    It has been argued by several authors, using different formalisms, that the quantum mechanical spectrum of black hole horizon area is discrete and uniformly spaced. Recently it was shown that two such approaches, namely ...
  • Barvinsky, Andrei; Das, Saurya; Kunstatter, Gabor (ElsevierLebedev Physics Institute and Lebedev Research Center in PhysicsUniversity of Winnipeg, 2001)
    We quantize the spherically symmetric sector of generic charged black holes. Thermal properties are incorporated by imposing periodicity in Euclidean time, with period equal to the inverse Hawking temperature of the black ...
  • Das, Saurya (Arts and ScienceDepartment of PhysicsUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015-12-22)
    We compute quantum corrections to the Raychaudhuri equation by replacing classical geodesics with quantal (Bohmian) trajectories, and show that they prevent focusing of geodesics, and the formation of conjugate points. ...
  • Bernes, Kerry B. (EducationUniversity of Calgary, 1993)
    A quasi meta-analysis approach was used to examine the research methodologies used to study issues related to youth (ages 13-25) and careers. Psychlit, ERIC, Dissertation Abstracts, and four journals were searched to ...
