Abstract: Two separate snail species surveys were conducted in Bell County, Texas in 2003 and 2013, identifying between 15 and 20 different macro-snail species. Identifying these species by their morphological structures can be extremely difficult, and could be more easily done using DNA sequence information, although there is not a lot of DNA information in the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) database. In order to accomplish differentiation of the species, PCR was completed with three different primer pair sets to amplify fragments of the mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase subunit I gene (COI), the 16S mtDNA, and the 18S rDNA. PCR and sequencing was completed on a sample of Rumina decollata, a snail species that was imported to Bell County and is commonly found in this area. A DNA product was obtained from all three PCR’s, which were then sent off for sequencing and analyzed using nBLAST to determine if there were any similar sequences in the NCBI database. In the future, the sequences obtained will be pieced together to obtain an entire sequence for Rumina decollata. This information could aid in the future identification of other snail species by their genomes instead of by morphological features.

Abstract: In 2013, a survey was conducted on snail populations in 19 different locations of Bell County, Texas. The previous survey reported over 20 species, while the most recent survey identified only 15 different macro-snail species. Of the species found, some are more difficult to distinguish by morphological features and could be more easily identified using DNA sequence information. DNA extraction was done on multiple snail species using both frozen and ethanol-preserved tissue, the latter samples providing significantly poorer quality DNA templates for sequencing. The genes sequenced were fragments of the mitochondrial cytochrome C oxidase subunit I gene (COI) and the 16S mtDNA, as well as the entire 18S rDNA. nBLAST analysis showed sequence similarity with other gastropods, however, results at this time are preliminary as to their usefulness in distinguishing species.

Abstract: The type and quality of and adolescent's friendships can vary across many dimensions with each friendship having its own unique context, features, and norms. The primary purpose of this study will be to use the Add Health social network data to explore how different definitions of the term 'friend' impact the adolescent/peer delinquency association. The term friend(s) is defined as an adolescent's nominated egocentric friendship group, the first nominated friend (i.e. the best friend), and the rest of the friendship group excluding the best friend. First, we assess the relationship between an adolescent's delinquency and that of the three specified definitions of the term friend(s). Second, our analysis tests the hypothesis that the delinquency of an adolescent's best friend and the rest of the group each have a unique and significant association with his or her delinquency. Lastly, we examine if the effect of the best friend's delinquency depends upon its similarity to the delinquency of the rest of the friendship group. Each of these questions will be explored across three delinquency definitions: a general delinquency index, smoking, and fighting.

Abstract: Contracts are breached every day, oftentimes leaving bitter feelings between the parties. The law aims to rectify the wrong of the breach by offering a few remedies. One of those remedies, and the focus of attention of this paper, is the remedy of specific performance. Under many systems of law specific performance is the default remedy for breach.
Much ink has been spilt in the theoretical analysis of this remedy. Some try to justify it in deontological terms while others push for and against it from the perspective of economic efficiency. However important those views are, they lack – and usually admit so – empirical data.
Through the paradigm of law in action this research aims to take a fresh look into the ways contracts are preformed after litigation. The research is built on a two-tiered analysis: first, a comprehensive content analysis of court cases reveals the characteristics of judgments awarding specific performance. Second, a set of interviews with parties after litigation explores the obstacles and hurdles parties face in achieving performance of the court order.
Some of the economic analyses suggest that the parties will bargain around the court order rather than perform it. The interviews provide data on the frequency of such bargains and when those fail, on the frequency and quality of the performance of the court orders. The latter question offers a look into the under-explored scenarios where failure to negotiate results in (coerced) cooperation. The research aims at evaluating the problematic nature of semi non-consensual co-operations.

Abstract: This study examines the relationship between students’ motivation for math and their motivation for a math-related videogame. Thirty-six graders (n = 30) were split into two groups based on their level of motivation for mathematics. Participants then played a math-related videogame fifteen times. As they played, their game performance, math-related motivation, and game-related motivation were recorded. The presentation shares findings about the relationship between students’ domain-specific and game-specific motivations and concludes with implications for future research.
