Wisconsin Lutheran College is a liberal arts college affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. It has an enrollment of about 1,000 students. Its nine-building campus sits on the border of Milwaukee and Wauwatosa, with some buildings in each city. Degree programs and the ESL Institute at Wisconsin Lutheran College are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. In 2009, WLC was ranked 128th of 600 by Forbes on its list of America's Best Colleges. For the 13th consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report rates WLC as one of America's Best Colleges for 2015. WLC ranked 12th in the U.S. on Washington Monthly's 2013 Best Bang for the Buck Rankings for liberal arts colleges. In 2013, WLC ranked 12th in the nation on CBS MoneyWatch's list of U.S. colleges with the best professors. Wikipedia.

Safe and clean potable water is a basic primary need for daily living and the ability to process water using minimal expenditure of resources provides tremendous advantages. In this work, we present ozone process technology being developed at KWJ Engineering to decontaminate recovered potable water and greywater with a small energy footprint. The technology involves the in-situ generation of ozone, a powerful broad spectrum disinfectant, generated from air. Unique microreactor technology integrated with a low power ozone source enables high efficiency mixing of water and ozone at high mass transfer rates for decontaminating a multitude of pathogens and chemical contaminants. The compactness and low power feature of microreactors and micro-ozone generators creates a portable and scalable system that can provide on the spot potable water in many situations such as disaster relief, rural communities and space habitats. © 2014 The Electrochemical Society.

Cyclooctatetraene [COT], a simple non-aromatic cyclic polyene, is capable of undergoing a variety of oxidation and cycloaddition reactions to afford polycyclic structures. In addition, complexation of COT or the cycloaddition products with transition metals facilitates bond formation. Recent developments in the reactivity of COT and application to the synthesis of naturally occurring and non-naturally occurring compounds is reviewed. © 2012 Bentham Science Publishers. Source

Raman multivariate curve resolution (Raman-MCR), as well as quantum and classical calculations, are used to probe water structural changes in the hydration shells of carboxylic acids and tetraalkyl ammonium ions with various aliphatic chain lengths. The results reveal that water molecules in the hydration shell around the hydrophobic chains undergo a temperature and chain length dependent structural transformation resembling that previously observed in aqueous solutions of n-alcohols. Deprotonation of the carboxylic acid headgroup (at pH ∼ 7) is found to suppress the onset of the hydration-shell structural transformation around the nearest aliphatic methylene group. Tetraalkyl ammonium cations are found to more strongly suppress the water structural transformation, perhaps reflecting the greater intramolecular charge delocalization and suppression of dangling OH defects in water's tetrahedral H-bond network. The observed coupling between ionic and hydrophobic groups, as well as the associated charge asymmetry, may influence the hydrophobicity of proteins and other materials.

The purpose of this study was to construct a screening tool, the Early Childhood Behavior Screen (ECBS), to identify behavior problems and prosocial behaviors in very young children (1-5 years old) from low-income backgrounds. Field testing of the initial screening tool was conducted with a representative, diverse sample of 439 parents from a low-income, urban community. The final 20-item scale was written at a 3.9 grade reading level. Psychometric properties of the ECBS revealed that the items loaded on two factors, the Challenging Behavior factor and the Prosocial Behavior factor. Each factor demonstrated high levels of internal consistency (87 and .92, respectively). The Challenging Behavior factor demonstrated adequate levels of concurrent validity (r = .75), sensitivity (r = .82), and specificity (r = .80) based on its relationship with the Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory (S.M. Eyberg & D. Pincus, 1999). The Prosocial Behavior factor is a clinically useful aspect of the ECBS, as it allows researchers and practitioners to identify the child's positive behaviors as part of a strength-based approach to treatment. The results suggested that the ECBS has potential as a brief screening tool that is useful in pediatric, psychological, and educational settings that serve low-income populations to aid in the identification of young children with challenging behaviors that may require intervention services. © 2012 Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health.
