Site:, a leading resource provider for higher education and career information, has selected the best universities and colleges in Tennessee for 2017. Based on an analysis of government-backed data, 37 four-year schools made the list, with Vanderbilt University, Lipscomb University, Christian Brothers University, Aquinas College and Union University earning highest overall scores. 15 two-year schools also made the list, with Chattanooga State Community College, Nashville State Community College, Dyersburg State Community College, Roane State Community College and Volunteer State Community College ranked as the best five. A full list of winning schools is included below. “Projections show Tennessee’s job market will continue to grow for the foreseeable future, which is great news for people interested in earning a degree,” said Wes Ricketts, senior vice president of LearnHowToBecome.Org. “The schools on our list have demonstrated their value to students who want to enter the workforce well-prepared by providing the high-level education, career and employment resources that lead to post-college success.” To be included on Tennessee’s “Best Colleges” list, schools must be regionally accredited, not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also appraised on additional data that includes annual alumni earnings 10 years after entering college, employment and academic services offered, student/teacher ratio, graduation rate and the availability of financial aid.

It is important to test methods for simulating water, but small water clusters for which benchmarks are available are not very representative of the bulk. Here we present benchmark calculations, in particular CCSD(T) calculations at the complete basis set limit, for water 26-mers drawn from Monte Carlo simulations of bulk water. These clusters are large enough that each water molecule participates in 2.5 hydrogen bonds on average. The electrostatically embedded three-body approximation with CCSD(T) embedded dimers and trimers reproduces the relative binding energies of eight clusters with a mean unsigned error (MUE, kcal per mole of water molecules) of only 0.009 and 0.015 kcal for relative and absolute binding energies, respectively. Using only embedded dimers (electrostatically embedded pairwise approximation) raises these MUEs to 0.038 and 0.070 kcal, and computing the energies with the M11 exchange-correlation functional, which is very economical, yields errors of only 0.029 and 0.042 kcal. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

The parametrization of the polarized molecular orbital (PMO) method, which is a neglect-of-diatomic-differential-overlap (NDDO) semiempirical method that includes polarization functions on hydrogens, is extended to include the constituents that dominate the nucleation of atmospheric aerosols, including ammonia, sulfuric acid, and water. The parametrization and validation are based mainly on CCSD(T)/CBS results for atmospheric clusters composed of sulfuric acid, dimethylamine, and ammonia and on M06-2X exchange-correlation functional calculations for other constituents of the atmospheric aerosols. The resulting model, called PMO2a, is parametrized for molecules containing any type of H, C, or O, amino or ammonium N, and S atoms bonded to O. The new method gives greatly improved electric polarization compared to any other member of the family of NDDO methods. In addition, PMO2a is shown to outperform previous NDDO methods for atomization energies and atmospheric aerosol reaction energies; therefore, its use can be recommended for realistic simulations. © 2014 American Chemical Society.

Prolonged ethanol abuse has been associated with brain injury caused by impaired synaptogenesis, cellular migration, neurogenesis, and cell signaling, all of which require proper microtubule functioning. However, the means by which ethanol may impair microtubule formation or function and the role that microtubule-associated proteins (MAPs) have in mediating such effects are not clear. In the present studies, purified MAP-deficient (2mg/mL) and MAP-rich (pre-conjugated; 1mg/mL) bovine α/β tubulin dimer was allowed to polymerize at 37°C, forming microtubules in the presence or absence of ethanol (25-500m. m). Microtubule formation was assessed in a 96-well format using a turbidity assay, with absorption measured at 340nm for 45min. Additional studies co-exposed α/β tubulin dimers to 50m. m ethanol and purified MAPs (0.1mg/mL) for 45min. Polymerization of MAP-deficient tubulin was significantly decreased (at 15-45min of polymerization) during exposure to ethanol (>25m. m). In contrast, ethanol exposure did not alter polymerization of α/β tubulin dimers pre-conjugated to MAPs, at any concentration. Concurrent exposure of MAP-deficient tubulin with purified MAPs and ethanol resulted in significant and time-dependent decreases in tubulin polymerization, with recovery from inhibition at later time points. The present results suggest that ethanol disrupts MAP-independent microtubule formation and MAP-dependent microtubule formation via direct actions at an MAP-sensitive microtubule residue, indicating that disruption of neuronal microtubule formation and function may contribute to the neurodegenerative effects of binge-like ethanol intake. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
