Title Spitzer-IRS Spectroscopic Studies of Oxygen-Rich Asymptotic Giant Branch Star and Red Supergiant Star Dust Properties Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 216.03-216.03
Keywords
Abstract We analyze the dust emission features seen in Spitzer Space Telescope Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) spectra of Oxygen-rich (O-rich) asymptotic giant branch (AGB) and red supergiant (RSG) stars. The spectra come from the Spitzer Legacy program SAGE-Spectroscopy (PI: F. Kemper) and other archival Spitzer-IRS programs. The broad 10 and 20 micron emission features attributed to amorphous dust of silicate composition seen in the spectra show evidence for systematic differences in the centroid of both emission features between O-rich AGB and RSG populations. Radiative transfer modeling using the GRAMS grid of models of AGB and RSG stars suggests that the centroid differences are due to differences in dust properties. We present an update of our investigation of differences in dust composition, size, shape, etc that might be responsible for these spectral differences. We explore how these differences may arise from the different circumstellar environments around RSG and O-rich AGB stars. BAS acknowledges funding from NASA ADAP grant NNX13AD54G.

Title Dust and metallicity in carbon stars Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 216.04-216.04
Keywords
Abstract The Infrared Spectrograph on the Spitzer Space Telescope observed over 200 carbon stars in nearby metal-poor dwarf galaxies. These spectra probe how the quantity and composition of dust produced by carbon stars depend on initial metallicity, initial mass, and pulsational properties. For stars to produce significant quantities of dust, they must be pulsating in the fundamental mode with strong amplitudes. The spectra confirm that carbon stars with longer pulsation periods produce more dust and that the amount of dust shows no strong dependence on metallicity. This sample includes more carbon stars with low mass and reveals that for a given pulsation period, higher-mass stars produce less dust. Evidence is building for the layering of dust grains, with SiC cores in grains produced by metal-rich carbon stars, and mantles of MgS around grains in all embedded stars.

Title Bio-field Treatment: An Effective Strategy to Improve the Quality of Beef Extract and Meat Infusion Powder Type Journal Article

Volume 5 Issue 4 Pages
Keywords Beef extract powder; meat infusion powder; beef powder characteristics; beef extract xrd analysis; quality of beef extract; Mahendra Kumar Trivedi; Mahendra Trivedi; Trivedi Effect; The Trivedi Effect; Biofield; Biofield Energy Treatment Beef extract powder; Meat infusion powder; Bio-field treatment; Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy X-ray diffraction; Particle size analysis; Surface area analysis; Differential scanning calorimetry; Thermo gravimetric analysis.
Abstract The present research work investigated the influence of bio-field treatment on two common flavoring agents used in food industries namely beef extract powder (BEP) and meat infusion powder (MIP). The treated powders were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), particle size analysis,surface area analysis, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The FT-IR results showed disappearance of triglycerides peaks in both the treated powders as compared to control. XRD results corroborated the amorphous nature of both control and treated samples. The BEP showed enhanced average particle size (d50) and d99(size exhibited by 99% of powder particles) by 5.7% and 16.1%, respectively as compared to control. Contrarily, the MIP showed a decreased particle size (d50;0.4% and d99; 18.1%) as compared to control.It was assumed that enormous energy was stored in MIP after bio-field treatment that led to fracture into smaller particles. The surface area was increased in both the treated powders. DSC result showed significant increase in melting temperature, in BEP and MIP, which indicated the higher thermal stability of the samples. However, the specific heat capacity (∆H) was decreased in both samples, which was probably due to high energy state of the powders.

Title A Downside to the Entrepreneurial Personality? Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Abbreviated Journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice
Volume 39 Issue 1 Pages 1-8
Keywords
Abstract The literature on entrepreneurship bears a distinctly positive cast, often with good reason. Entrepreneurs and their innovations have contributed enormously to national wealth, and so scholars have examined the personalities, capabilities, and contexts underlying these contributions. However, despite some early work, the negative aspects of the entrepreneurial personality have been largely ignored. We shall argue that given the nature of the challenges facing many entrepreneurs and the consequent demands of their jobs, certain personality traits will be quite valuable to them. These, however, tend to be Janus-faced in that positive attributes, such as energy, self-confidence, need for achievement, and independence, may sometimes devolve naturally into aggressiveness, narcissism, ruthlessness, and irresponsibility. Given the costly repercussions of the latter characteristics, we urge more study of their nature and causes among entrepreneurs.

Title Much Ado About Nothing? The Surprising Persistence of Nascent Entrepreneurs Through Macroeconomic Crisis Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Abbreviated Journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice
Volume Issue Pages n/a-n/a
Keywords
Abstract We hypothesize that a major macroeconomic crisis triggers four alternative responses among nascent entrepreneurs: disengagement, delay, compensation, and adaptation. We also suggest that commitment and ambition (or “high potential”) moderate these responses. Our most important finding is the relative absence of behavioral crisis responses. However, crises may make high-tech founders become more likely to disengage, whereas the opposite holds for founders far into the process. Our study sheds light on the mechanisms behind aggregate effects of crises on the number and type of start-ups in an economy, and can guide future research on the effect of crises on nascent entrepreneurship.

Title Choosing Between a Student-Run and Professionally Managed Venture Accelerator Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Abbreviated Journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice
Volume Issue Pages n/a-n/a
Keywords
Abstract This case presents challenges facing a student-run venture accelerator at a major university in the United States. The student-run model has attracted much media attention for its uniqueness, but it has also raised questions about its sustainability. Signals from a new dean, not invested in the student model, are putting much pressure on the student-chief executive officer to change course—to tweak the student-run model and fight for its future or cave in to pressures to “professionalize” it and let students take a backseat in management. The case highlights challenges in entrepreneurial leadership of a student-run accelerator at the point of initial growth.

Title Does Size Matter? The Moderating Effects of Firm Size on the Employment of Nonfamily Managers in Privately Held Family SMEs Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Abbreviated Journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice
Volume Issue Pages n/a-n/a
Keywords
Abstract Family firms' decisions to hire nonfamily managers are influenced by agency costs, socioemotional wealth concerns, and the availability of high-quality nonfamily managers in the labor pool. We hypothesize that owing to these factors, family ownership and intrafamily succession intentions will be negatively associated with the proportion of nonfamily managers in private small- and medium-sized (SME) family firms. However, firm size is hypothesized to positively moderate those relationships because as family firm size increases, the benefits of hiring nonfamily managers rise faster than the costs. Tobit regression analyses of 7,299 private SMEs support our hypotheses.

Title Job Satisfaction and Wages of Family Employees Type Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice Abbreviated Journal Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice
Volume 39 Issue 2 Pages 183-207
Keywords
Abstract Although they represent a sizable occupational group, little is known about family employees. Using utility theory and the theory of compensating wage differentials, we hypothesize that family employees have higher levels of job satisfaction and lower wages relative to regular employees. We present several regressions based on a large cross-country panel data set that support our hypotheses, and we discuss our study's implications for research on family businesses and the labor market.
