McNeese State University is a public university located in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in the United States. Founded in 1939 as Lake Charles Junior College, it was renamed McNeese Junior College after John McNeese, an early local educator. It adopted its present name in 1970.McNeese is part of the University of Louisiana System and is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a Master's University. U.S. News and World Report designates McNeese as a Tier One South Regional University. The selective admissions university consists of six colleges and the Doré School of Graduate Studies. McNeese is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, and all programs of study are accredited by their respective national boards. Wikipedia.

In this paper, a data-driven test is proposed to compare two independent or dependent stationary time series, in terms of the second order dynamics. We show that the problem of time series comparison is equivalent to a goodness-of-fit test checking if a constant model is adequate. Using the same framework, the proposed test is easily extended to compare multiple time series and time series of different lengths. Different to previous methods, it is based on generalized score statistics in an estimating equation setting, with some weak and flexible conditions. An extensive simulation study illustrates the validity of the asymptotic result and finite sample properties, using the tapered periodogram. The proposed test is found to perform well for many different situations, including time series with heavy-tailed or skewed innovations. An application to damage detection using vibration data is discussed. © 2011 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Source

This essay asks and answers the question: Is it possible for children with autism to live a good life, to flourish? The notion of a good life that is used is borrowed from Aristotle. Initially, the answer is no. Left to their own devises, children with autism do not flourish. However, unbeknownst to the public, a significant percentage of children with autism can and do flourish when properly treated with the ‘new’ science of Applied Behavior Analysis. © 2016 by The Johns Hopkins University Press.

A new species of tardigrade, Minibiotus acadianus, is described from a moss sample collected in June 2009 from a rainforest palm tree on the island of Dominica, West Indies. The new species has a buccal tube with a single anterior curvature, two macroplacoids, and a microplacoid. The cuticle is smooth with small, evenly-distributed circular or elliptical pores. Eggs have a reticulated shell surface and short inverted goblet egg process; a dentate margin on the distal dish of the processes bears 1012 short teeth. The new species is most similar to Minibiotus acadianus Meyer & Domingue, 2011; both have wider buccal tubes than other species in the genus. The new species is easily distinguished from M. acadianus in lacking cuticular gibbosities and in some characters of the egg. Source

Hyper trumps super: A central atom, typically a metal, surrounded by halogen or oxygen atoms is called a superhalogen. Theoretical calculations and experiments reveal that a new class of highly electronegative species can be created when the central metal atom is surrounded by superhalogen moieties. These hyperhalogens can have electron affinities even larger than those of their superhalogen building blocks. © 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim. Source

This paper describes the components used to build a sensor/ actuator network to control a model railroad layout. Control of the model railroad is accomplished using a network of Digi International XBee modules. Information generated by sensors and actions sent to the layout are coordinated using the open source JMRI software package on a general purpose computer connected to the XBee network.
