Victory Media, originator of the family of Military Friendly® employment, entrepreneurship and education resources for veterans and their families, announced today special awards for its 2017 Military Friendly® Employers and 2017 Military Friendly® Schools. For more than a decade, Military Friendly® ratings have set the standard for companies and colleges demonstrating positive employment and education outcomes for veterans and their families. New this year, Military Friendly® Awards showcase the most powerful and effective programs of all institutions earning the Military Friendly® designation. “All of our Military Friendly® award recipients set the standard for excellence,” said Daniel Nichols, Chief Product Officer of Victory Media and head of Military Friendly® development. “They offer exceptional examples of what it means not just to build a program that meets federal requirements, but one that serves the military and veteran community from classrooms to careers.” For 2017, Military Friendly® has named Marsh & McLennan Companies, a leading global professional services firm providing expertise in strategy, risk and people solutions, as its Overall (#1) Military Friendly® Employer, and The City College of New York as its top institution in the category of Military Friendly® Schools - Public Universities with More than 10,000 Enrolled Students. "Marsh & McLennan Companies is pleased to be recognized as the number one Military Friendly Employer,” said Dan Glaser, President and CEO, Marsh & McLennan Companies. “Veterans have served our country with distinction, and we are proud to provide them with meaningful opportunities to contribute to our firm. And with every hire, my conviction grows stronger that it is not only the right thing to do, but it is also the best thing to do—for our company, our clients and our colleagues.” Glaser described how Marsh & McLennan’s veteran talent initiative casts a wide net to identify veteran candidates for a range of roles. “Our ‘Silver Medalist’ program identifies impressive military veteran candidates who did not receive a job offer in their initial round of interviews and works with them to develop their interviewing skills. We work closely with these candidates to identify and place them in other positions in one of our operating companies.” Based on the successful completion of the Military Friendly® survey, more than 200 companies and 1,200 post-secondary schools were designated as “Military Friendly®” in early November. Of these recipients, 154 employers and 541 schools have been recognized for excellence in different award categories. Awards for Top 10, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners by category (annual revenue for employers and institution type for schools) moves the entire program from a binary designation of “Are you Military Friendly®?” to “How Military Friendly® are you?” Interim President Vince Boudreau at The City College of New York (CCNY), the flagship institution of the City University of New York system, couldn’t agree more. “CCNY is tremendously gratified to receive this recognition,” Boudreau said. “We noticed over ten years ago that veterans had begun showing up on campus for the first time in decades, but we didn't have the apparatus to serve their needs. Crucially, however, our entire veterans' program began when several of them called a meeting designed to build that apparatus. We think this element of our programming—that it was originally conceptualized by veterans for veterans—makes it distinct. It also demonstrates the great organizational and programmatic capacity that veterans possess, and why it is so vital that colleges like ours make every effort to embrace them.” Award thresholds were set by the leading institution in each category. Award categories are: Public Universities with fewer than 10,000 students - University of North Alabama, Florence, Alabama Public Universities with more than 10,000 students -The City College of New York, New York, New York Private Institutions with fewer than 10,000 students -The College of Saint Rose, Albany, New York Private Institutions with more than 10,000 students - Regent University, Virginia Beach, Virginia Non-Traditional Institutions - Academy of Cosmetology & Esthetics - Paul Mitchell Partner School, Staten Island, New York Community Colleges - Mercer County Community College, West Windsor Township, New Jersey Private Vocational Schools - Community Business College, Modesto, California Online Universities - Drexel University Online Graduate Schools - University of California - Davis, Graduate School of Management, Davis, California Tier 1 Research Institutions - University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia Less than $500MM Revenue - PlaneTechs, LLC, Oak Brook, Illinois $500MM - $1 Billion Revenue - Cajun Industries, LLC, Baton Rouge, Louisiana More than $1Billion Revenue - Marsh & McLennan Companies, New York, New York Government & Nonprofit Entities - Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, City, New Jersey Award levels in each category are defined as: Top 10 Gold – A ranked list of the Top 10 in a category based on a numerical score. Gold Medal – Institutions scoring within 20% of the last-ranked (10th) organization. Silver Medal – Institutions scoring within 30% of the last-ranked (10th) organization. Bronze Medal – Institutions scoring within 40% of the last-ranked (10th) organization. Companies and schools must have successfully completed a 2017 Military Friendly® survey and been designated as a 2017 Military Military Friendly® Employer or School to be considered for the Awards program. The names of awardees are published online and will be printed in the December issue of G.I. Jobs® and the annual Guide to Military Friendly® Schools.

Surface exposure dating of boulders on an exceptionally well-preserved sequence of moraines in the Peruvian Andes reveals the most detailed record of glaciation heretofore recognised in the region. The high degree of moraine preservation resulted from dramatic changes in the flow path of piedmont palaeoglaciers at the southern end of the Cordillera Blanca (10° 00′ S, 77° 16′ W), which, in turn, generated a series of cross-cutting moraines. Sixty 10Be surface exposure ages indicate at least four episodes of palaeoglacier stabilisation (>65, ca. 65, ca. 32 and ca. 18-15 ka) and several minor advances or stillstands on the western side of the Nevado Jeulla Rajo massif. The absence of ages close to the global Last Glacial Maximum (ca. 21ka) suggests that if an advance culminated at that time any resulting moraines were subsequently overridden. The timing of expanded ice cover in the central Peruvian Andes correlates broadly with the timing of massive iceberg discharge (Heinrich) events in the North Atlantic Ocean, suggesting a possible causal connection between southward migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone during Heinrich events and a resultant increase in precipitation in the tropical Andes. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Carbon nanotubes are a promising platform across a broad spectrum of applications ranging from separations technology, drug delivery, to bio(electronic) sensors. Proper dispersion of carbon nanotube materials is important to retaining the electronic properties of nanotubes. Experimentally it has been shown that salts can regulate the dispersing properties of CNTs in aqueous system with surfactants (Niyogi, S.; Densmore, C. G.; Doorn, S. K. J. Am. Chem. Soc.2009, 131, 1144-1153); details of the physicochemical mechanisms underlying such effects continue to be explored. We address the effects of inorganic monovalent salts (NaCl and NaI) on dispersion stability of carbon nanotubes.We perform all-atom molecular dynamics simulations using nonpolarizable interaction models to compute the potential of mean force between two (10,10) single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) in the presence of NaCl/NaI and compare to the potential of mean force between SWNTs in pure water. Addition of salts enhances stability of the contact state between two SWNTs on the order of 4 kcal/mol. The ion-specific spatial distribution of different halide anions gives rise to starkly different contributions to the free energy stability of nanotubes in the contact state. Iodide anion directly stabilizes the contact state to a much greater extent than chloride anion. The enhanced stability arises from the locally repulsive forces imposed on nanotubes by the surface-segregated iodide anion. Within the time scale of our simulations, both NaI and NaCl solutions stabilize the contact state by equivalent amounts. The marginally higher stability for contact state in salt solutions recapitulates results for small hydrophobic solutes in NaCl solutions (Athawale, M. V.; Sarupria, S.; Garde, S. J. Phys. Chem. B2008, 112, 5661-5670) as well as single-walled carbon nanotubes in NaCl and CaCl2 aqueous solutions. © 2012 American Chemical Society.

This study replicates the method of identifying core journals in the field of communication disorders published in the January 2001 issue of Library Resources and Technical Services for the purpose of determining the degree to which the ranked list changed after ten years. Two measures are used to assess the reliability of rankings over time: Spearman's rho rank correlations among the citing journals and coefficients of variation among cited journals. Rank correlations of groups of journals can mask important changes in rank for individual titles, so characteristics of the journals with the greatest movements in rank over a decade are explored. Major findings are that the discipline's literature grew substantially over the decade, and the core journals remained stable over ten years (rs= 0.73). However, despite stability of core journals over time, some titles changed dramatically in rank. Coefficients of reliability calculated for this group of communication disorders journals suggests that approximately one-third of observed change in ranks is because of random variability in works cited.

This paper argues that citizens are capable of developing and promoting complex policy symbols, and that these symbols include supporting frames that explain and justify them. Based on a long-term study of education policies in Los Angeles, California, the paper uses interpretive methods to reconstruct and analyze these frames. Citizens developed two specific policy symbols while the district was engulfed in a desegregation debate; citizens identified schools as places where students gained academic knowledge and as institutions that affected broader race relations. However, education policy in Los Angeles could not support these two symbols over a long period of time, and a political movement to end mandatory busing eventually caused the academic symbol (originally the weaker of the two symbols) to become dominant. This trend reflects broader national discussions, in which education is now discussed in terms of standards and accountability and is evidence of continuing racism in US policy. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC.

The overexpression of certain membrane-bound receptors is a hallmark of cancer progression and it has been suggested to affect the organization, activation, recycling and down-regulation of receptor-ligand complexes in human cancer cells. Thus, comparing receptor trafficking pathways in normal vs. cancer cells requires the ability to image cells expressing dramatically different receptor expression levels. Here, we have presented a significant technical advance to the analysis and processing of images collected using intensity based Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) confocal microscopy. An automated Image J macro was developed to select region of interests (ROI) based on intensity and statistical-based thresholds within cellular images with reduced FRET signal. Furthermore, SSMD (strictly standardized mean differences), a statistical signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) evaluation parameter, was used to validate the quality of FRET analysis, in particular of ROI database selection. The Image J ROI selection macro together with SSMD as an evaluation parameter of SNR levels, were used to investigate the endocytic recycling of Tfn-TFR complexes at nanometer range resolution in human normal vs. breast cancer cells expressing significantly different levels of endogenous TFR. Here, the FRET-based assay demonstrates that Tfn-TFR complexes in normal epithelial vs. breast cancer cells show a significantly different E% behavior during their endocytic recycling pathway. Since E% is a relative measure of distance, we propose that these changes in E% levels represent conformational changes in Tfn-TFR complexes during endocytic pathway. Thus, our results indicate that Tfn-TFR complexes undergo different conformational changes in normal vs. cancer cells, indicating that the organization of Tfn-TFR complexes at the nanometer range is significantly altered during the endocytic recycling pathway in cancer cells. In summary, improvements in the automated selection of FRET ROI datasets allowed us to detect significant changes in E% with potential biological significance in human normal vs. cancer cells. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.

This project is for support for US participants to participate in a workshop entitled, Mathematical Modeling of Tumor-Immune System Dynamics to be held in Sydney, Australia from January 7-10, 2013. The workshop aims at bringing together applied mathematicians, biologists, and clinicians actively working in the field of cancer immunology in order to share their current research and exchange ideas, as well as increasing awareness of the innovative mathematical tools that are available and suitable for the growing field of cancer immunology. The workshop will include keynote tutorials by leading experts in the field of cancer immunology, group discussions, poster sessions, senior/junior presentations, and a summary panel discussion. A major objective of this workshop is to explore opportunities for future collaborative interaction and educational exchange amongst cancer immunology practitioners across Asian Pacific and North American countries.
Recent progress in cancer immunology and the advances in immunotherapy suggest that the immune system plays a fundamental role in host defense against tumor, and could be utilized to prevent or cure cancer. The purpose of this workshop is to: (1) share new advances in the field of mathematical and computational models of tumor-immune dynamics, (2) catalyze and identify potential areas for future collaborative opportunities between US and Australian researchers in the field of the cancer immunology, (3) establish novel approaches for interdisciplinary research, data sharing and ways of applying computational approaches to cancer immunology, and (4) explore innovative methods of combining mathematical and computational modeling of biological processes with undergraduate and graduate student education.
This workshop includes US and international mathematicians, biologists and clinicians, and participation will catalyze new collaborations, and energize existing international collaborative research among these scientists. In particular, the workshop will involve junior researchers and students from Asian Pacific and North American countries, providing opportunities for new and early-career mathematicians and biologists to enter this fast growing interdisciplinary field of cancer immunology. To stimulate new interests in this kind of interdisciplinary work, the workshop will schedule a panel discussion on how to cultivate a sustained collaboration between US, Australian and international scientists. The workshop will also have an educational impact by providing training to graduate students, early-career scholars and clinicians in cancer-immune dynamics. This workshop will serve as a platform for facilitating interdisciplinary interactions between experienced and beginning researchers in tumor-immune dynamics. In addition, the workshop will identify opportunities for overseas training and exchange programs for US investigators and graduate students motivated by the challenging problems in cancer immunology in Australia and elsewhere. Five of the plenary speakers are female, and two of them are minority. The organizers plan to post lectures online, and publish proceedings in an internationally recognized journal in math biology.
