Ohio University is a U.S. public research university located on a 1,850-acre campus in Athens, Ohio, United States. Ohio is the first institution of higher education chartered through an act of Congress in America, by the Northwest Ordinance in 1787; the first university in the former Northwest Territory, in 1804; and is the ninth oldest public university in the United States. The Athens campus enrolls more than 21,000 students, who come from nearly every state and approximately 100 countries. Five regional campuses and e-learning programs further extend educational access and opportunity to students across southern Ohio and bring the total student population to approximately 40,000.The university maintains a selective admission rate with further admission requirements for its schools. The Heritage College of Medicine maintains its separate select admissions criteria. Ohio University offers more than 250 areas of undergraduate study. On the graduate level, the university grants master’s degrees in many of its major academic divisions, and doctoral degrees in selected departments. Ohio University is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching classifies Ohio as a Research University under the Basic Classification category.Ohio has been cited for outstanding academic quality and value by publications Fortune, U.S. News and World Report, BusinessWeek, Forbes, America's 100 Best College Buys, Princeton Review's Best Colleges, and Peterson's Guide to Competitive Colleges. The John Templeton Foundation has also recognized Ohio University as one of the top character-building institutions in the country. The Chronicle of Higher Education has recognized the university as one of the top producers of U.S. Fulbright scholars by type of institution, with the highest number of recipients in the state as well as the Mid-American Conference in 2011-12. Its total number of Fulbright winners frequently ranks the university first in the state and places the university in the company of Boston College, Princeton University, and UCLA.Ohio's Division I sports teams are called the Bobcats and compete in the Mid-American Conference in all sports. Ohio is host to the oldest football venue in the MAC and among the oldest athletic arenas west of the Allegheny Mountains. Ohio football has participated in 6 Division-1 Bowl Games within the past decade. Its men's basketball team has played in 13 NCAA basketball championships. The team defeated Georgetown 97-83 in 2010, and their 2012 victory over Michigan was followed with a 62–56 win over 12th seeded South Florida that saw them reach the Sweet Sixteen for the first time since 1964.

A first example provides a circuit configured to operate in four modes. A first mode includes propagating data from a first terminal of the circuit to a second terminal of the circuit. A second mode includes propagating data from the second terminal of the circuit to the first terminal. A fourth mode includes storing data received by the second terminal. A second example provides a circuit configured to cause one or more communication links to operate in one of two modes based on data traffic detected on the one or more communication links. The first mode includes propagating data from a first router to a second router. The second mode includes propagating data to the first router from the second router.

A method for enhancing the mass transfer rate of a soluble gas from a gaseous phase to an aqueous phase is provided. The method comprises positioning a membrane formed from fibers relative to a supply of liquid such that a portion of the membrane is submerged in the supply of liquid and is thereby wetted. The method further comprises moving the wetted portion of the membrane relative to the supply of liquid such that the wetted portion of the membrane exits from the supply of liquid to expose the liquid in the wetted portion of the membrane to a soluble gas. The method further comprises submerging the wetted portion in the supply of liquid.

A fluid processing system and method of processing a fluid includes a tank having an outer wall, a heating element, and an insulating element. The heating element is situated within the tank and includes a first electrode and a second electrode. The insulating element is positioned between the first electrode and the second electrode. As such, powering the heating element directs an electric current through the fluid within the tank for heating the fluid, while the insulating element provides electrical and thermal insulation to the outer wall of the tank.

A terrestrial positioning and timing system (TPTS) comprising a ground segment and user segment is disclosed that is comprised of a spread-spectrum based range and bearing reference signal, with respect to a reference time, transmitted by an antenna over a broad region of space; and a spread-spectrum based bearing variable signal with bearing specific modulation referenced to a reference time, transmitted using a scanning antenna over a spatial region of space that is more narrow than the spread-spectrum based range and bearing reference signal transmission spatial area. Various embodiments enable the TPTS station and user to support various position, velocity or time services. Most notably, an embodiment with a single TPTS station, active interrogation/transponder reply, and data delivery subsystem can provide a position, velocity, and time solution for the user. Additional embodiments disclosed provide varying levels of user solutions to include bearing, position, velocity, or time.


Method and kits for determining a propensity to develop Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in an individual by measuring an asymmetry of a captured fingerprint from the individual are described.


A composition includes a first population of strongly plasmonic nanorods and a second population of strongly plasmonic nanorods. The two populations each have a size range of the nanorods, creating a size range gap between the two populations. This size range gap creates a transparency window that can be seen in an extinction spectrum of the composition, which is characterized by the sizes of the nanorods in both populations. The composition may be included in a filter providing a transparency to a defined wavelength characterized by the size range gap of the nanorods.
