Class Roots: The Genesis of the Ontario Class Proceedings Act, 1966 - 1993
Nearly 25 years since its passage, the Ontario Class Proceedings Act has become one of the most frequently debated procedural mechanisms of its kind. The CPA came about following the release of the Attorney Generals Advisory ...
Continuous Modeling of 3D Building Rooftops From Airborne LIDAR and Imagery
In recent years, a number of mega-cities have provided 3D photorealistic virtual models to support the decisions making process for maintaining the cities' infrastructure and environment more effectively. 3D virtual city ...
What Do We Mean By Support? A Discourse Analytic Study of Practitioners’ Talk about Facilitating Support Groups for Eating and Body Image Issues
The purpose of this research is concerned with the ways service providers define, construct, and understand their practices and approaches in facilitating support groups in community-based settings for adults living with ...
The Experiences of Low Income Single Mother:The Impact of the CAS ‘Duty to report’ when using and accessing External Support Services
The primary goal of this research project was to explore how the CAS ‘duty to report’ regulation impacts the decision of low income single mothers without prior CAS involvement to access and use support services external ...
Antiviral Strategies for Emerging Influenza Viruses in Remote Communities
(PLoS ONE, 2013-04-22)
Background: Due to the lack of timely access to resources for critical care, strategic use of antiviral drugs is crucial for mitigating the impact of novel influenza viruses with pandemic potential in remote and isolated ...
The Design Of Infrared Mirror Coatings For The Enhanced Performance Of Incandescent Lighting
Herein we present the design of infrared mirror coatings for the enhanced performance of incandescent lighting. We consider single and stacked dielectric mirrors comprised of alternating layers of TCO and SiO2 nanoparticle ...
Composite Heat Sink LED Cooling
Metal coating of 3D printed polymers is an attractive proposition for thermal dissipation of light emitting diodes, due to its high efficiency and markedly lower material costs than conventional aluminum heat sinks. Efficient ...
The Struggle for Security: Risk, Politics and Pension Policy in Ontario, 1960-2016
This dissertation traces the rise and decline of Ontarios workplace pension system that has resulted with growing emphasis on Canadas public pension system, focusing on the postwar period to 2016. Since the mid-1980s, ...

The archival file of Aphra Behn's "The Rover" directed by Guillaume Bernardi. This play ran from March 14-16 2019.
Regulation of Cyclin G2 Degradation in Human Ovarian Cancer Cells
Epithelial ovarian cancer has the highest mortality rate among gynecological malignancies. Uncontrolled cell growth lies at the core of EOC. Normal cell cycle progression is governed by temporal expression of canonical ...
Modeling of Human Web Browsing Based on Theory of Interest-Driven Behavior
The ability to generate human-like Web-browsing requests is essential for testing and optimization of WWW systems. In this thesis a new model of human-browsing behavior the so-called HBB-IDT model has been proposed. The ...
Post-Capitalist Struggles in 21st Century Latin America: Cooperation, Democracy and State Power
This dissertation develops the concept of post-capitalist struggles. This concept highlights how a post-capitalist future is a recurring moment within the capitalist present and can be developed through struggles that ...
Modelling Thermal Conductivity Of Porous Thermal Barrier Coatings For High-Temperature Aero Engines Using Five Phase Model
Thermal Barrier Coatings (TBC) are used to shield hot sections of gas turbine engines, helping to prevent the melting of metallic surfaces. This paper proposes a Five-phase model to calculate the effective thermal conductivity ...
Vibration Control Of Downtown Toronto High-Rise Development
In this industry-academia collaboration, a multi-platform hybrid numerical simulation was performed to assess the effectiveness of a tuned liquid damper (TLD) to be installed in a high-rise condominium located in Downtown ...
Vibration Isolation Of A Carbon Nanotube Filled With A Mass Chain
Vibration isolation is one of the most prominent characteristics of elastic metamaterial with negative effective mass. In this work, we show that a carbon nanotube filled with a linear mass chain can behave like an elastic ...

Effect of Lipotoxicity on ER Stress, Autophagy and Apoptosis in Skeletal Muscle and Regulation by Adiponectin
Obesity is a key factor contributing to the “metabolic syndrome” which increases the risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and liver complications. In obese conditions, lipotoxicity is a serious concern as the ...
Insight into the Biochemical Interaction of USP7 C-terminal Domain
Ubiquitination is a post-translational modification, involving the covalent attachment of ubiquitin, important for the regulation of cellular pathways. Deubiquitinases reverse this process through the hydrolysis of ubiquitin ...
Population Genomics of Polistes Wasps
The molecular mechanisms influencing the evolution of social behaviour in insects are of great interest and have been the focus of many recent studies. Chapter one of this thesis reviews several major hypotheses regarding ...
Natural Frequencies Of Internally-Doubly-Tapered Laminated Composite Beams
In the present study, the free vibration response of symmetric thickness-and-width-tapered (doubly-tapered) laminated composite beams is investigated. Considering the continuous-plies-interspersed ply drop-off configuration, ...
