Boise State University is a public research institution in Boise, Idaho.Founded in 1932 by the Episcopal Church, it became an independent junior college in 1934, and has been awarding baccalaureate and master degrees since 1965. With nearly 23,000 students, Boise State has the largest enrollment of higher education institutions in the state of Idaho.Boise State offers 201 degrees in 190 fields of study and has more than 100 graduate programs, including the MBA and MAcc programs in the College of Business and Economics; Masters and PhD programs in the Colleges of Engineering, Arts & science, and Education; and the MPA program in the College of Social science & Public Affairs.The university's athletic teams, the Broncos, participate in NCAA Division I athletics as a member of the Mountain West Conference for most sports. The Wrestling team is an associate member of the Pacific-12 Conference, since the MWC does not sponsor the sport. Wikipedia.

The Himalayan range exposes a spectacular assemblage of metamorphic rocks from the mid- and deep crust that have fostered numerous models of how the crust responds to continental collisions. Recent petrogenetically based petrologic and geochronologic studies elucidate processes with unprecedented resolution and critically test models that range from continuum processes to one-time events. The pronounced metamorphic inversion across the Main Central Thrust reflects continuum thrusting between ca. 15 and 20 Ma, whereas exposure of ultrahigh-pressure rocks in northwestern massifs and syntaxis granulites reflects singular early (≥45 Ma) and late (≤10 Ma) exhumation events. Multiple mechanisms including wedge collapse and flow of melt-weakened midcrust are debated to explain pressure-temperature trajectories, patterns of thinning, and thermal overprinting. A geochronologic revolution is under way in which spatially resolved compositions and ages of accessory minerals are combined in a petrogenetically valid context to recover specific temperature-time points and paths. Combined chemical and chronologic analysis of monazite is now well established and titanite is particularly promising, but recent zircon data raise questions about anatectic rocks and their use for investigating tectonism. © 2014 by Annual Reviews.

A high-speed atomic force microscope (HSAFM) is disclosed herein. The HSAFM includes a cantilever, a piezotube, an optical detector, a circuit element, and a feedback controller. The cantilever has a probe, and the piezotube is arranged in proximity to the probe. The optical detector is configured to detect deflection of the cantilever, and the circuit element is abutting a first end of the cantilever and is configured to exert a force on the cantilever to resist deflection of the cantilever. The circuit element is communicably connected to the optical detector by a first feedback loop. The feedback controller is communicably connected to the piezotube and configured to modulate the piezotube along the Z-axis towards and away from the probe. And the feedback controller is communicably connected to the optical detector through a second feedback loop.

A memory controlled circuit includes a configurable circuit element electrically coupled to a first terminal and to a second terminal. The circuit may further include a transconductor. A first input of the transconductor may be electrically coupled to the first terminal and a second input of the transconductor may be electrically coupled to the second terminal. The circuit may also include a switch coupled to an output of the transconductor. The circuit may include a dynamic analog memory electrically coupled to the configurable circuit element and to the switch.
