  1. EDUCATIONAL MEDIA TO TEACH PHYSICS AND SAFETY BELT CONCEPTS TO GRAMMAR AND MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIENCE STUDENTS

    SBC: NORTHWEST MEDIA, INC            Topic: N/A

    MANY METHODS HAVE BEEN TRIED TO INCREASE THE USE OF SAFETY BELTS BY CHILDREN BUT EDUCATION SEEMS TO BE THE MOST PROMISING. STUDENTS UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF SAFETY BELT USE WHEN THEY UNDERSTAND THE PHYSICS OF CRASHES. THEY ALSO VISUALIZE PHYSICS CONCEPTS BETTER WHEN A DRAMATIC AND REALISTIC EXAMPLE IS USED, SUCH AS THE DIFFERENCE IN CRASH CONSEQUENCES WHEN SAFETY BELTS ARE WORN. VIDEO TAPE IS ...

  2. MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS FOR DEBITTERING CITRUS JUICE

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR PROBLEM IN THE CITRUS INDUSTRY WORLD-WIDE IS THE FORMATION OF BITTERNESS IN CITRUS JUICES WITHIN HOUR AFTER EXTRACTION FROM THE FRUIT. THE PRIMARY CAUSE OF THE "DELAYED BITTERNESS" IS THE FORMATION OF AN INTENSELY BITTERGROUP OF COMPOUNDS CALLED LIMONOIDS, PRINCIPALLY LIMONIN ANDNOMILIN. MUCH RESEARCH HAD BEEN DIRECTED TOWARD FINDING MEANS TO PRE-VENT THE FORMATION OF LIMONIN PRECURSORS PR ...

  6. A KNOWLEDGE-BASED TUTORING SYSTEM WITH STUDENT-DRIVER, GRAPHIC INTERFACE, FOR TEACHING ARABIC ON MICROCOMPUTER

    SBC: New Sage            Topic: N/A

    NEW SAGE WILL DEVELOP SOFTWARE THAT CAN TEACH BEGINNING ARABIC (AND PERSIAN) SKILLS. THE SYSTEM WILL BE A RESPONSIVE, STUDENT-DRIVEN, INTERACTIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT USING MACINTOSH COMPUTERS. KEY TO THE DESIGN IS THE INTEGRATION OF SEVERAL KNOWLEDGE BASES INTO THE INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN: 1) A RICH (BUT NOT LARGE) DICTIONARY -- FOR KNOWLEDGE OF WORD MEANINGS, 2) LINGUISTIC RULES -- FOR GENERATION A ...

  7. A PERSONAL COMPUTER CONTROLLER FOR MULTI-HANDICAPPED BLIND INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: WESTEST ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    PERSONAL COMPUTERS ARE NORMALLY CONTROLLED BY ENTERING DATA INTO A KEYBOARD AND MONITORING THE RESULTS ON A VIDEO TERMINAL. MANY PEOPLE WHO ARE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED CANNOTUSE KEYBOARDS AND VIDEO TERMINALS ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR THE BLIND. EXISTING DEVICES WHICH HELP THE HANDICAPPED OVERCOMETHESE BARRIERS ARE EITHER SLOW AND CUMBERSOME OR USE CUSTOM SOFTWARE WHICH RESTRICTS THEIR USE. WESTEST ENGIN ...

  8. SOLID-STATE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    A SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE EFFICIENT, AND MORE RELIABLE CLINICAL GAS ANALYZER FOR RESPIRATORY AND ANESTHETIC GAS MONITORING IS NEEDED. EXISTING LASER RAMAN-BASED INSTRUMENTATION USES A LARGE, HEAVY, AND EXTREMELY INEFFICIENT (0.1 PERCENT) ARGON ION LASER WITH AN INTRACAVITY GAS CELL. THE LONG-TERM OBJECTIVE OF THIS STUDYIS TO IMPLEMENT A SOLID-STATE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING ION LASER. SUCH A LASE ...
