Northern Michigan University is a four-year college public university established in 1899 and located in Marquette, in the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. With enrollment of about 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students, Northern Michigan University is the Upper Peninsula's largest university. The university is known for its extensive wireless system that covers not only the campus, but the city of Marquette and the surrounding communities and its laptop program that issues laptops to all full-time students and faculty members The university is the alma mater of Starbucks founder Howard Schultz, the Chief Financial Officer of Kraft Foods Teri List-Stoll as well as championship winning College basketball coach Tom Izzo. Northern Michigan University is consistently listed as being among the most affordable universities in Michigan in terms of tuition normally with only community colleges listing a lower rate.

This paper is devoted to the study of embedding methods for semidefinite programming problems using the duals formulated by Ramana, Tunçel, and Wolkowicz in 1997. Specifically, if we solve a semidefinite programming problem (PD) (in either standard primal or dual form), a dual problem of (PD), which guarantees strong duality (i.e. a zero duality gap and dual attainment), is formulated. The semidefinite program (PD) and its newly formulated dual problem are then embedded in a larger problem. The embedding problem and its Lagrangian dual satisfy the generalized Slater conditions, and therefore, any path-following primal-dual interior-point method can be applied to solve this embedding problem pair. Like embedding methods appearing in the literature, a solution of the embedding problem can be used to extract the information about the original program (PD). © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Conservation professionals often struggle in their efforts to protect species at risk, typically failing to account for the role played by social interaction and individual place-attachments that can amplify the perceived personal impacts of conservation policies. This article reviews various ways in which a sense of self-in-place can be applied in the context of landscape-scale planning to conserve species through the perspective of an amplification of risk framework. The perspective is extended to a suite of principles for incorporating a sense of self-in-place and risk amplification mechanisms into wildlife conservation contexts. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.

As with watershed management or adaptive management plans, place-based sustainability initiatives are required to deal with complex and intertwining systems of social and ecological organization. One approach to fostering successful place-based initiatives features the development and use of sustainability indicators to promote community dialog, thereby amplifying the risks and opportunities of movement toward more environmentally benign practices. This article uses the author's personal experience as a methodological springboard for demonstrating how the development of sustainability indicators at a landscape-scale were incorporated into community-based planning in the Lake Superior Basin. An introduction to the science and practice of indicator development is followed by two case studies involving different spatial and temporal scales of community engagement in the development of place-based sustainability initiatives. The relative success of these examples leads to a suite of principles for using public participation as a means for stressing the opportunities occasioned by the sustainability imperative. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
