‘Birth Tourism,’ Citizenship, and the Politics of Deservingness in Canada: Analyzing Parliamentary and Newspaper Media Discourses from 1990 to 2021Download
This thesis examines a phenomenon that has been controversially labeled as ‘birth tourism’ in the Canadian context. Allegedly, pregnant women from other countries are coming to Canada solely for the purpose of giving birth to their children. This is ostensibly so that the child gains Canadian...
‘Being a Mom’ in a Mixed-Gendered Residential Substance Abuse Treatment Program: A Phenomenological StudyDownload
Children are often the primary reason women enter a substance abuse treatment program. Women-centered treatment programs have done well to address women’s roles as mothers; however, it is unclear how women attending traditional, mixed gender substance abuse treatment programs that have not...
This purpose of this thesis is to examine the nature of the ‘household-family’ in early modern Scotland with particular focus on the dynamics between all members residing within the familial home. By looking at petty criminal activities in specific urban locales, this thesis will explore how...
The thesis is composed of two parts including three chapters. The first two chapters study the wage gap between immigrants and natives in Canada as well as wage structure of immigrants and natives. The third chapter is on the subject of the bank loan-deposit spreads and business cycles. The...
I have created a custom keyboard for Western Plains Cree syllabics based on a symmetrically square layout. It is called the Star Chart Keyboard and currently runs on Apple iOS devices. It allows for previously difficult to access syllabics characters to be typed digitally in as few steps as...
β-catenin is O-GlcNAc modified at Serine 23: Implications for β-catenin’s Subcellular Distribution and Transcriptional ActivityDownload
β-catenin is a potent oncoprotein that serves as a structural anchor at the adherens junctions and as a transcriptional co-activator of the Wnt Signaling pathway. β-catenin was identified to be post-translationally modified by O-linked β-D-N-acetyl-glucosamine (O-GlcNAc). This investigation was...
β-Galactosidases and Fasciclin-like Arabinogalactan Proteins in Flax (Linum usitatissimum) Phloem Fibre DevelopmentDownload
The phloem fibres of flax (Linum usitatissimum) have specialized, cellulose-rich secondary walls of the gelatinous type (G-type), which give the fibres remarkable strength. G-type walls are also found in tension wood of many trees. β-galactosidases (BGAL) and fasciclin-like arabinogalactan (FLA)...
α-exo-Alkylidene γ-lactones and γ-lactams via 2-alkoxycarbonyl allylboronates: mechanistic studies, diversity-oriented synthesis and target-oriented synthesisDownload
Allylboration reactions have been thoroughly utilized in organic chemistry since it was discovered that they could add in a nucleophilic fashion to aldehydes and ketones in 1964. Modification of allylboronates and the substrates that they can react with has been the focus of many research groups...
Furanose-containing molecules are widespread in nature and have been identified as important constituents of glycoconjugates from numerous pathogenic microorganisms. Although significant advances in the synthesis of 1,2-cis-glycofuranosides have been made, there are still some challenges. In...
