Ohio Dominican University is a private four-year liberal arts institution, founded in 1911 in the Catholic and Dominican traditions. The main campus spans over 75 acres in the North Central neighborhood of Columbus, Ohio, United States just minutes from Ohio State University and Easton Town Center. The university has just over 3,000 students and offers undergraduate degrees in over 50 majors as well as six graduate degree programs. Wikipedia.

A genetic algorithm system is described which builds on an existing implementation for modifying the parameters of a software-based guitar synthesizer in real time. The current version replaces the standard linear genome with a hierarchical arrangement of genes on a tree structure. Different tree topologies organize into different species; methods for breeding and modifying species are described. © 2015 Timothy M. Walker. Source

This case explores the impact of the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon on various aspects of the seafood industry. Nielsen syndicated point-of-purchase scanner data for frozen fish, shrimp, and crab are used to gauge consumer response at several points during the event. Traceability systems for seafood harvested from both aquaculture production and capture fisheries are also discussed. The role of corporate environmental policies for seafood procurement is highlighted for Whole Foods Market. The case concludes with a discussion of British Petroleum's historic settlement with the US government, five states adjacent to the Gulf of Mexico, and numerous local governments. © The Author 2016.

This article challenges educational computing researchers and teacher educators to consider a merger between universal design for learning and technological pedagogical content knowledge to create a practitioners' model to prepare teachers to graduate with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to teach the full spectrum of learners. Presently, these models are being developed on parallel tracks because of the existing bifurcated system of general (regular) and special education. The two models together would create a cohesive, comprehensive, theoretical model for the preparation of 21st century teachers. © 2013, Baywood Publishing Co., Inc. Source

Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) synthases catalyze the polymerization of 3-(R)-hydroxybutyrate coenzyme A (HBCoA) to produce polyoxoesters of 1-2 MDa. A substrate analogue HBCH2CoA, in which the S in HBCoA is replaced with a CH2 group, was synthesized in 13 steps using a chemoenzymatic approach in a 7.5% overall yield. Kinetic studies reveal it is a competitive inhibitor of a class I and a class III PHB synthases, with Kis of 40 and 14 μM, respectively. To probe the elongation steps of the polymerization, HBCH2CoA was incubated with a synthase acylated with a [ 3H]-saturated trimer-CoA ([3H]-sTCoA). The products of the reaction were shown to be the methylene analogue of [3H]-sTCoA ([3H]-sT-CH2-CoA), saturated dimer-([3H]-sD- CO2H), and trimer-acid ([3H]-sT-CO2H), distinct from the expected methylene analogue of [3H]-saturated tetramer-CoA ([3H]-sTet-CH2-CoA). Detection of [3H]-sT- CH2-CoA and its slow rate of formation suggest that HBCH 2CoA may be reporting on the termination and repriming process of the synthases, rather than elongation. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Binary optimal codes often contain optimal or near-optimal subcodes. In this paper we show that this is true for the family of self-dual codes. One approach is to compute the optimum distance profiles (ODPs) of linear codes, which was introduced by Luo, et al. (2010). One of our main results is the development of general algorithms, called the Chain Algorithms, for finding ODPs of linear codes. Then we determine the ODPs for the Type II codes of lengths up to 24 and the extremal Type II codes of length 32, give a partial result of the ODP of the extended quadratic residue code q48 of length 48. We also show that there does not exist a [48,k,16] subcode of q48 for k≥17, and we find a first example of a doubly-even self-complementary [48,16,16] code. © 2013 Elsevier Inc. Source
