      Wardle, J.F.C.; Homan, D.C.; Ojha, R.; Roberts, D.H. (Brandeis University, 1998)
      A long outstanding problem in extragalactic astrophysics is the composition of the relativistic jets of plasma streaming from the nuclei of quasars and active galaxies - whether it is predominantly a "normal" (electron-proton) ...

      La Noue, George R.; Sullivan, John C. (SAGE, 1998-04-01)
      Affirmative action preferences have traditionally benefited four racial and ethnic group categories: African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, and Native Americans. These categories may be overinclusive, masking ...
