This study examines the role of the Internet in challenging the state after 9/11. Drawing on interview data with members of the Internet-based group MoveOn.org and participant observation data collected at MoveOn events, the authors argue that the Internet provides citizens an opportunity to lodge democratic challenges against the state during hostile political climates. There are at least three features of the Internet that make it a useful tool for challengers after political shocks such as 9/11: (a) it provides a free space for challengers to form oppositional points of view away from dominant groups; (b) it allows individuals to participate anonymously and, thus, buffers challengers from the high costs of activism; and (c) it moves challenges from the virtual to the real world by engaging citizens in intermediary forms of activism. In short, the Internet engages individuals in a broader range of activities—and this has important implications for democratic processes.

  The objective of these studies was to determine the digestible threonine requirement for maintenance in turkeys during the starter period. Amino acid requirement data can be determined in multiple fashions. One method for determining amino acid requirements is through modeling. A portion of the data required for a comprehensive model is the maintenance requirement. Two studies were conducted to determine the maintenance requirement for threonine during the starter period for turkeys. Day-old poults (192 birds) were randomly assigned to pens to provide for six replications of eight treatments in each trial and a low protein diet was formulated so that different levels of threonine could be fed to young turkeys. The maintenance requirements of threonine were 25.94 and 29.51 mg/bird/day in experiment 1 and experiment 2, respectively. This information, coupled with the amino acid requirements for growth, will allow for the construction of an effective model to predict amino acid requirements over a wide range of environment and physiological conditions.

  The objective of these studies was to predict the valine requirement for maintenance in starting turkeys for use in a future modeling system. Amino acid requirement data can be determined in multiple fashions. One method for determining amino acid requirements is through modeling. A portion of the data required for a comprehensive model is the maintenance requirement. Two studies were conducted to determine the maintenance requirement for valine during the starter period for turkeys. Day-old poults (192 birds) were randomly assigned to pens to provide for six replications of eight treatments in two trials and a low protein diet was formulated so that different levels of valine could be fed to young turkeys. The maintenance requirements of valine were approximately 31 and 43 mg/bird/day in experiment 1 and experiment 2, respectively. This information, coupled with the amino acid requirements for growth, will allow for the construction of an effective model to predict amino acid requirements over a wide range of environmental and physiological conditions.
