Children, ages 4 and 5 years, and adults were asked (a) to explain a story character's incorrect search for a desired object, and (b) to explain the source of the character's ignorance or false belief concerning the ...
An Improved Method to Derive Surface Albedo from Narrowband AVHRR Satellite Data: Narrowband to Broadband Conversion
(Royal Meteorological Society, 1999-02)
A method was investigated to estimate broadband surface shortwave albedo from the narrowband reflectances obtained by the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometers (AVHRRs) on board the polar orbiting satellites. Field ...
United States Copper Companies, the State, and Labour Conflict in Mexico, 1900-1910
(Cambridge University Press, 1994-10)
Article explores worker strikes in the Mexican copper industry, incorporating elemetns of both traditional interpretations, emphasizing the activities as precursor to the Mexican Revolution, and revisionist interpretations ...
Expression of a Ribosomal Protein Gene in Axillary Buds of Pea Seedlings
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 1992)
Axillary buds of intact pea seedlings (Pisum sativum L. cv Alaska) do not grow and are said to be dormant. Decapitation of the terminal bud promotes the growth of these axillary buds, which then develop in the same ...

Formulations of the essential commitment of the etiological theory of functions have varied significantly, with some individual authors' formulations even varying from one place to another. The logical geography of these ...
Synoptic-Scale Features Common to Heavy Snowstorms in the Southeast United States
(American Meteorological Society, 1997-03)
Eighteen heavy snowstorms in the Southeast are examined to determine the synoptic-scale features common to these storms. Storm-relative composites in the temporal domain are created by assigning a "zero hour" to each storm ...
Structural Instability of Exponential Functions
(American Mathematical Society, 1994-07)
We first prove some equivalent statements on J-stability of families of critically finite entire functions. Then, with these in hand, a conjecture concerning stability of the family of exponential functions is affirmatively ...
Confirmation and the Computational Paradigm (or: Why Do You Think They Call It Artificial Intelligence?)
(Springer Verlag, 1993-05)
The idea that human cognitive capacities are explainable by computational models is often conjoined with the idea that, while the states postulated by such models are in fact realized by brain states, there are no type-type ...
Individualism and Evolutionary Psychology (or: In Defense of 'Narrow' Functions)
(Philosophy of Science, 1997)
Millikan (1993) and Wilson (1994) argue, for different reasons, that the essential reference to the environment in adaptationist explanations of behavior makes (psychological) individualism inconsistent with evolutionary ...
