  • 'Yellow Rocket' and Alfalfa and 'Yellow Rocket'

    This 6 page report discusses the interaction between alfalfa crops and a common weed. The weed chosen for examination is Barbarea vulgaris, most commonly known as 'yellow rocket.' Yellow rocket is usually biennial or perennial with some plants flowering, setting seed and dying after their first growing season; reproducing only by seed but the seeds are notable for their ability to germinate with minimal soil requirements. Yellow rocket and other weeds reduce alfalfa production during establishment by competing with and choking out young alfalfa seedlings, invade established alfalfa fields, and reducing forage quality and yield. Several aspects of intervention and eradication are discussed. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Assessment of the Observation 'Only the Curious Will Learn'

    A 5 page paper assessing the validity of the statement, “only the curious will learn.” The motivation that a three-month-old baby has for finger play with her own hands does not constitute the same type of curiosity such as that which led Madame Curie to investigate radiation or drove Isaac Newton to intercept a ray of sunlight with a prism. Both types encourage learning, however. It all begins with a question, and there can be no questioning without curiosity driving its origin. The paper discusses Homer Hickam’s curiosity about rockets and subsequent development of intense desire to learn the same math, chemistry and physics that he had disdained before seeing the Soviet Sputnik fly over his West Virginia home in 1957. No sources listed.
