— Keiser University is pleased to announce that recently its Graduate School received notification of approval from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) for its Doctor of Business Administration degree program. “Keiser University’s undergraduate and MBA business programs were approved by ACBSP in 2014 and now the university has programmatic accreditation from the associate degree through the doctorate degree program in business,” stated Dr. John Jones, Associate Vice Chancellor of the Graduate School. Keiser University’s Graduate School offers doctoral and master’s degrees in fields that are vital to Florida’s diverse economy and global competitiveness. As the Graduate School continues to grow, faculty and student research projects focused on effecting positive change have been published, while many others are in progress. In 2015, through state grant funding, Keiser University joined five Florida universities as part of the Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resource System’s (FDLRS) Multidisciplinary Educational Services Centers. The grant is designed to provide services to teachers and parents in improving educational outcomes for students with disabilities. The work of the centers is to evaluate students and provide a range of services including diagnostic evaluation and consultation services for children and youth identified as having complex medical, educational, emotional, and/or behavioral problems. Keiser University has grown from one student to nearly 20,000 over the last four decades. It was first accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in the 1980’s.

— Keiser University will begin offering the Associate of Science degree in Computer Technology with a concentration in data analysis (Associate of Science in Business Analytics) program in Shanghai, China. The joint degree program is in partnership with the Shanghai Industry and Commerce Foreign Language College (SICFL) and is approved by Shanghai Municipal Commission of Education to enroll 80 students this fall. The government’s approval is significant because of the process students go through during and after high school to enroll in college. For those who passed the entrance requirement, the ministry will allocate students to colleges and degree programs. The Shanghai campus of Keiser University is located in the Nanhui Technical and Educational Park. “Through Keiser University’s agreement with SICFL, Keiser University students will have joint access to the approximately 50-acre campus. This site offers 200 classroom facilities, 14 computer labs, multiple offices, meeting and conference rooms, and a 600,000 volume multi-functional library,” shared Dr. Arthur Keiser, Chancellor and CEO. One of the interesting features of the program is its Big Data Lab located at the Shanghai off-campus site. The laboratory is a modern classroom and multi-functional study-center equipped with an instructor-controlled multimedia presentation system and interactive desktop computer system for each student participant. The purpose of the Big Data Lab is to provide students with hands on instruction in big data analysis and problem solving. The large auditorium consists of a comfortable desk station for each student featuring a computer with wireless internet access and a system that projects the instructor’s presentation and other applications directly on the student’s computer screen. Advance software applications provide enhanced student-instructor interaction for data collection, analysis, and application in business case study analysis. This laboratory has been invaluable in the delivery of the business analytics courses contained in the program. One of the foci of the programmatic initiatives of Keiser University located at the Shanghai Industry & Commerce Foreign Language College is to combine the language focus of the Shanghai institution with business administration education in a model that closely resembles the American model, initially in Mandarin and gradually adding instruction in English so as to eventually graduate bilingual Chinese nationals who have received an American baccalaureate business administration degree. For 40 years, Keiser University has been a talent development leader providing over 100 doctoral through associate degrees in workforce shortage areas in Florida’s targeted industries. The “students first” philosophy combines soft skills, leadership preparation, financial literacy, student support services including tutoring, writing and math labs, monitored learning gains, and convenient scheduling options for working adults. The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS), visited the Shanghai location in February of this year and re-affirmed the location’s accreditation status.

The current study tests the stream analogy of lethal violence, proposed by Unnithan et al. on a large sample of 124 nations. Spatial econometric regression models confirm that economic development decreases homicide rate and increases suicide-homicide ratio (SHR). The SHR developed by Unnithan et al. accounts for the impact of economic development better than original measure of suicide rate. The most important finding of the current investigation is that the increase in the population size of the elderly, consequent to economic development, is partially responsible for elevated suicide rates and SHRs. © 2013 Copyright Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.

Thermionic arc cathodes are the cathodes where thermionic emission is the main electron emission mechanism. They are used in welding (Tungsten pure or doped with rare earth oxides) and plasma arc cutting (Tungsten for cutting with inert gas or Hafnium for cutting with Oxygen plasma). There are two different sources of erosion: constant current (CC) erosion and erosion during arc initiation and termination (cycling erosion). Available experimental data for both types of cathode and both types of erosion (CC and cycling) are presented and discussed. For quite some time, it has been clear that CC erosion is due to cathode evaporation. It has been shown that as almost all the evaporated atoms return back to the cathode, the net erosion rate is much lower than the evaporation rate. The existing model allows one to calculate the ratio of these two (escape factor). It is in the range 10-2-10-3. The important role of cathode geometry and plasma flow pattern in the cathode proximity is discussed. The nature of cathode erosion during arc start and arc termination is much less understood in spite the fact that the corresponding erosion could be very important and even dominate for multiple cycles. Different processes that lead to this type of erosion are considered. © 1973-2012 IEEE.

Anode attachment of a nontransferred dc arc moves along the anode nozzle. Under the influence of the gas flow, it moves downstream thus elongating the arc. This leads to an increase of the arc voltage. The voltage across the cold layer that separates the arc column and the nozzle increases accordingly. This voltage increase leads to the breakdown of the cold anode layer. After this breakdown, the anode attachment jumps to the new upstream location (reattachment). The phenomenon of reattachment of the anode spot has not been completely understood yet. A simple model of the reattachment is suggested. Based on a suggestion that electron temperature inside the cold layer does not drop as low as the heavy particles' temperature does, it is assumed that some residue electrical conductivity (on the level of 10^{-2}~\Omega ^{-1} \mathrm{m}^{-1}) exists in this layer. It is shown that the voltage drop across the layer rises in time, leading to a fast developing overheating instability. This creates a electrically conductive column at an upstream location and results in reconnection of the arc to this new anode location. Simple estimations of the amplitude of the voltage oscillations and their frequency correspond to the experimental data. © 1973-2012 IEEE.
