A proof-of-concept study evaluates the performance of a novel strategy using photosynthetic microorganisms to soften groundwater instead of using caustic chemicals. The microalga Scenedesmus quadricauda was used to increase the pH of the groundwater via natural photosynthesis. This work applied softening as a pretreatment to ozonation of hard groundwater and mainly focused on investigating the multiple effects of algal softening on the degradation of persistent micropollutants upon subsequent…

Winter cave and mine surveys have been the primary method to monitor status of bat populations but they are not equally effective across regions or species. Many species of bats that roost in rock outcrops during the non-hibernation period are difficult to monitor with existing methods. Visual surveys for bats roosting on talus slopes has been proposed as a means to monitor populations, but efficacy of the method is unknown. We used standardized plot-based visual surveys to quantify presence …

Background: The 4-week-long College Orientation Workshop (COW) is an experiential education program that combines physical and mental challenges with classroom instruction to promote self-confidence, self-control, wellness, and life success in promising male youth facing challenges to reaching their full potential. Purpose: This was an exploratory study to assess whether young men who completed the program manifested psychological and/or physical changes. Methodology/Approach: Sixteen young m…

Abstract What explains a state's decision to intervene in ongoing interstate conflicts? Intervention is a risky proposition, potentially incurring audience costs if the effort is unsuccessful or if casualties and other costs mount. Various domestic political factors and features of the international environment certainly shape the risks surrounding intervention, but recent work in political psychology suggests that individual leaders’ risk-taking propensity, as measured by their locus of cont…

Because many threats exist in an animal's natural habitat, it is important to understand the impact of environmental challenges on maternal-offspring interactions and outcomes. In the current study, a rodent model incorporating the presence of restricted resources and an environmental threat (e.g. predator-related odors and sounds) was investigated. Specifically, pregnant females were assigned to one of four treatments: standard resources, without threat (SR; n = 7); standard resources plus t…

Cloud federation is the evolution of modern cloud computing. It provides better resource-sharing, perfect resourceutilization, and load-balancing. However, the heterogeneity of security policies and configurations between cloud service providers makes it hard for users to totally trust them. Further, the severe impact of modern cloud attacks such as cross-side channels on federated environments is a major roadblock against such evolution. Securing users’ capsules (Virtual Machines and contain…

To examine the influence of the Ultraman Florida triathlon (3 days of non-continuous racing; stage 1: 10 km swim and 144.8 km cycle; stage 2: 275.4 km cycle; stage 3: 84.4 km run) on circulating plasma concentrations of whole-body (C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6 (IL-6), and IL-10 and surrogate gut-specific inflammatory markers (IL-17 and IL-23), and determine whether these variables are associated with performance.Eighteen triathletes (N = 18; 15 men, 3 women; age: 37 ± 8 yrs) w…

In its December 2019 edition, the Notices of the American Mathematical Society published an essay critical of the use of diversity statements in academic hiring. The publication of this essay prompted many responses, including three public letters circulated within the mathematical sciences community. Each letter was signed by hundreds of people and was published online, also by the American Mathematical Society. We report on a study of the signatories' demographics, which we infer using a cr…

To give information technology (IT) a more central role in an organization and avoid disrupting the existing executive team power balance, chief information officers (CIOs) should only leverage their power in certain situations. The authors propose CIOs can leverage their expert, prestige, and structural power attributes to influence the social-intellectual alignment relationship versus the social-operational alignment relationship in unique ways. Analyzing data collected from 140 CIOs, the r…

The team of nine students from the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) collectively held their breath during the countdown. The result of their yearlong project—an 11-ft-tall, 60-lb rocket—stood on the launchpad, holding an autonomous soil-collecting robot they had designed. There was little doubt the engines would ignite, developing 450 lbf of thrust within 200 ms; their worry was whether the robot would eject at apogee and survive the resulting 1,000-ft fall.
