— Keiser University’s Miami campus student, Sheila Martinez, who is earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting, recently received The UPS Scholarship Award. The Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) provided UPS Scholarships to 31 state associations, which distributed the funding to first-generation or low-income students at 585 private colleges and universities. “It is gratifying when our students are recognized for their dedication and commitment to earning degrees in fields that are vital to Florida’s diverse economy and global competitiveness,” said Dr. Arthur Keiser, Chancellor and CEO of Keiser University. The UPS Scholarships are funded by the UPS Educational Endowment, which is held and administered by CIC. The Endowment was established in the 1970s by The UPS Foundation to support programs that benefit underserved populations. Since its inception, the Endowment has generated $54.5 million in scholarship support of 19,695 students at independent colleges and universities. Eight years ago, Martinez and her family moved to Miami from Cuba and she credits them for being so helpful and keeping her motivated as she works towards completing her degree. She grew up watching her mother, who was an accountant, and knew she wanted to do the same thing and be in a field with numbers. She is already working in an accounting department and learns something new every day from those around her. A faculty member, the Dean of Academics, and the Financial Aid Director submitted her name to the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida for consideration to receive the $2,750 award. “It is an honor to have been chosen to receive this award and to know all of my efforts and hard work have been acknowledged by my campus,” stated Sheila Martinez, UPS scholarship award recipient. “Being recognized for my academic accomplishments reminds me I am on the right path and reinforces my dreams of continuing my education beyond this degree.” About Keiser University Keiser University, co-founded by Dr. Arthur Keiser, Chancellor in 1977, is a private, not-for-profit University serving nearly 20,000 students offering 100 degrees at the doctoral through associate level on 19 Florida campuses, online and internationally, employing 3,800 staff and faculty.

— 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.

Nemchinsky V.,Keiser University

A method to calculate the properties of a high-current arc exposed to a transverse magnetic field is proposed. Using only the arc current and the magnetic field, the method predicts the arc size, electric field, temperature, and velocity of the arc. Comparison is presented for the calculated arc velocity V as a function of the magnetic field B with the available experimental data. The computed velocity of a 100-A arc at one atmosphere showed that: 1) the functional dependence of V(B) ∼ 0.63 is close to that experimentally observed and 2) the difference between the computed velocity and the experimental one does not exceed the factor of 2 in a wide diapason of magnetic fields. The prediction of the velocity of an arc at superhigh pressure (100 atm) is made. © 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.
