The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) has considered education its number one priority since it was established in 1929. As part of LULAC’s education efforts, the LULAC National Scholarship Fund (LNSF) was established in 1975 to provide scholarships to Hispanic students attending colleges and universities. Under the LNSF program, local LULAC Councils, in partnership with local and national businesses, award scholarships to students in their communities. LNSF is administered by the LULAC National Educational Service Centers, Inc., (LNESC) a non-profit educational organization established by LULAC to provide educational programs for Hispanics and other youth. TERMS: LULAC Councils will award scholarships to qualified Hispanic students who are enrolled or are planning to enroll in accredited colleges or universities in the United States. Awards start at $250. Awards of $500 and under are disbursed on July 15; awards over $500 are disbursed in two equal payments on July 15th and January 15th. All awards are sent to the local LULAC Councils for distribution to recipients. Scholarships may be used for the payment of tuition, academic fees, room, board, and the purchase of required educational materials & books. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Applicants must meet the following criteria to be considered for a scholarship: • Must be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident • Must have applied to or be enrolled as a full-time student in a college, university, or graduate school, including 2-year colleges, or vocational schools that lead to an associate’s degree • A student will not be eligible for a scholarship if he/she is related to a scholarship committee member, the Council President, or an individual contributor to the local funds of the Council AWARD CRITERIA: Applicants are eligible for the following three types of scholarship awards:...
T he CRSP Mutual Fund Database is designed to facilitate research on the historical performance of open-ended mutual funds by using survivor-bias-free data. The CRSP Survivor-Bias-Free US Mutual Fund Database includes a history of each mutual fund’s name, investment style, fee structure, holdings, and asset allocation. Also included are monthly total returns, monthly total net assets, monthly/daily net asset values, and dividends. Additionally, schedules of rear and front load fees, asset class codes, and management company contact information are provided. All data items are for publicly traded open-end mutual funds and begin at varying times between 1962 and 2008 depending on availability. The database is updated quarterly and distributed with a monthly lag. It is delivered in ASCII and SAS formats. Results were independently verified by a dedicated group of database researchers which included random sample selection when appropriate. Known Biases in mutual fund data The returns histories are sometimes duplicated in the database. For example, if a fund started in 1962 and split into four share classes in 1993, each new share class of the fund is permitted to inherit the entire return/performance history. This can create a bias when averaging returns across mutual funds. A selection bias favoring the historical data files of the best past performing private funds that became public does exist. The SEC has recently begun permitting some funds (and eventually probably all funds) with prior returns histories as private funds to add these returns onto the beginning of their public histories. The effect of this is that only the successful private fund histories are included in the database.
Use of greenhouse cultures accompanied by new techniques such as soilless or hydroponic culture on the one hand improves suitable control of plants nutrition and on the other hand it has created a great progress in greenhouse productions. In order to greenhouse tomato cultivar of Hamra was cultured in a hydroponic system and effect of micronutrients different levels was studied on it. The experiment design was as randomized complete block with five treatments and four replications. Experimental treatments were included: Lack of micronutrients application, Full application of sulfate manganese (4.06 mg/lit), Full application of sulfate zinc (4.42 mg/lit), 50% sulfate manganese (2.03 mg/lit) + 50% sulfate zinc (2.21 mg/lit) and Full application of sulfate manganese + Full application of sulfate zinc. The results showed that the highest fresh fruit yield, fruit dry matter percentage and content of Mn and Zn in fruit obtained from full application Mn, Zn and Mn + Zn. However micronutrients different levels had significantly effect on content of nitrogen, but they haven’t significantly effect on fruit size of tomato. Key words: Micronutrients, Tomato, Hydroponic culture, Yield.
Growth, Productivity, and Mineral Composition of Hydroponically Cultivated Greenhouse Tomatoes, with or without Nutrient Solution Recycling H. Zekki1, L. Gauthier 2, and A. Gosselin 3 Département de l’Envirotron, Centre de Recherche en Horticulture, Université Laval, Québec, Canada, G1K 7P4 Additional index words. artificial substrates, mineral absorption, drainage recycling, Lycopersicon esculentum Abstract. Tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv. Capello) were grown in the three most promising and used hydroponic cultivation systems using rockwool and peatmoss substrates and nutrient film technique (NFT), either with or without recovery and recycling of the drainage solutions. Prolonged recycling of nutrient solutions in NFT caused a reduction in fresh weight, dry weight, and yield compared to plants grown in NFT with regular renewal of the nutrient solution. There were no differences in growth, productivity, and leaf mineral composition between plants grown in rockwool and peatmoss systems, with or without recycling, and in the NFT system without recycling. These results suggest that recycling drainage solutions is an economically and environmentally sound horticultural practice that when used correctly does not cause a reduction in yield of tomatoes cultivated in rockwool or peatmoss. However, prolonged use of the same solution in the NFT cultivation system can negatively affect growth and yield. This is most likely due to an accumulation of sulfate ions in the fertigation solutions.
