In the third experiment, the scien- tists fed cyanuric acid alone to the fourth cat, which had eaten only untainted pet food while serving as a control in the previous experiments. All of the cats were euthanized at the end of the studies so their tissues could be examined. The results of these experiments were reported in a conference call in September and published in a veterinary science journal in November. Similar experiments done on pigs at Iowa State, with

Thank you to my parents: my father, whose support comes in all forms, including the cost of a conference call from the Mexico City Marriot Hotel in order to interview for the Gates Cambridge Scholarship; and my mother, whose reassurance emboldened me through altitude and home sickness alike. My sister Shauna’s unwavering support through many long-distance phone calls helped me through the lonelier moments that come with field research and long stretches of writing.

in the power/knowledge economy of the Girl Eff ect. Linguistically, I translated between languages (Portuguese and English), serving as the NGOs’ translator for visitors from the United States and India, and on conference calls with Nike Foundation. During the time I spent with the NGOs, I also translated baseline data reports, stories written by young women, and program reports, and I wrote case studies in English for the NGOs.
