New Jersey City University is a public university in Jersey City, New Jersey, USA. It is a member of the New Jersey Association of State Colleges and Universities.The institution opened in 1929 as the New Jersey State Normal School at Jersey City. It was renamed as New Jersey State Teachers College at Jersey City in 1935 and Jersey City State College in 1958, becoming a Liberal Arts College in 1968. In 1998, the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education approved a change of institutional status and accepted its present name.Dr. Sue Henderson became the first female president of the University in 2012.

A survey was conducted between July and November 2012 to determine how academic libraries in the United States and Canada marketed and delivered information literacy on the Web. A random sample of 264 institutions was taken from Peterson's Four-Year Colleges 2012, and the authors checked each Web site of the academic libraries of the institutions in the sample for instruction-related activities. Only 65 percent of the libraries in the sample advertised library instruction as a service on the Web, while 64 percent of the libraries boasted research guides and tutorials. Sixteen percent of the libraries provided direct links to ACRL's Information Literacy Competency Standards for Higher Education, and 24 percent made an effort to explain and define the term "information literacy" to their users. The authors hope the findings can help determine how academic libraries are currently using the Internet to increase information literacy on the Web and set a new platform for better strategies for advocating information literacy. © 2014 Copyright Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

This study assesses the intelligence-led policing model implored by the Denver Police Department. This study focuses on the crimes of burglary, motor vehicle theft, and robbery to identify the impact an intelligence-led policing model implemented by the Denver Police Department has on the cited crimes. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

This article describes the use of screencasting in online education courses. It defines and explores screencasting and how it can be used in online class environments. It also defines and gives a history of screencasting as well as examines how it can be used in a college online classroom. The article explains the step-by-step process for creating a screencast and the reasons why it would help online educators. Moreover, it presents how screencasting can be applied to various teaching settings and provides links to various free and fee-based online screencasting tools. This hands-on approach to education provides teachers with a creative and timely way to promote 21st-century learning in and out of the classroom. © 2015, Copyright © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

A mathematical model of the host's immune response to HIV infection is proposed. The model represents the dynamics of 13 subsets of T cells (HIV-specific and nonspecific, healthy and infected, T4 and T8 cells), infected macrophages, neutralizing antibodies, and virus. The results of simulation are in agreement with published data regarding T4 cell concentration and viral load, and exhibit the typical features of HIV infection, i. e. double viral peaks in the acute stage, sero conversion, inverted T cell ratio, establishment of set points, steady state, and decline into AIDS. This result is achieved by taking into account thymic aging, viral and infected cell stimulation of specific immune cells, background nonspecific antigens, infected cell proliferation, viral production by infected macrophages and T cells, tropism, viral, and immune adaptation. Starting from this paradigm, changes in the parameter values simulate observed differences in individual outcomes, and predict different scenarios, which can suggest new directions in therapy. In particular, large parameter changes highlight the potentially critical role of both very vigorous and extremely damped specific immune response, and of the elimination of virus release by macrophages. Finally, the time courses of virus, antibody and T cells production and removal are systematically investigated, and a comparison of T4 and T8 cell dynamics in a healthy and in a HIV infected host is offered. © 2010 Society for Mathematical Biology.

This paper explores the topic of 'haunted sound' and its overarching significance within minimalist thought, tracing the vast intricacies of this aerial intimation as a new and unforeseen existential horizon. To this end, the paper advances via the entangling concepts of nothingness and movement, including subthematic dimensions as far-reaching as: the zero-degree, disintegration, control/noncontrol, mood, catastrophe, indeterminacy, interruption, repetition, desertion, indifference, stillness, and exhaustion. It is through the formulation of this haunted soundscape, in turn, that the once absolute totalities of consciousness stray toward an increasingly apparitional province, turning perception itself toward the paradoxical borderlands of presence and absence, materiality and immateriality, being and nonbeing. Ultimately, the intent of this project is to devise an innovative outlook on the singular potential of sound to eclipse past existential regimes, to lead the aesthetic toward a vanishing, phantasmatic sphere at once creative and destructive, ethereal yet incisive, and which thereby restores the artwork to its volatile capacity for engaging the chaos of a minimalist imagination. © 2011 Pion Ltd and its Licensors.
