Keeping our Garden State green

A Greenway is a linear corridor of undeveloped land. The corridor may be miles wide or as narrow as a footpath. A Greenway may be publicly owned or it may be privately owned but protected by conservation easements. A Greenway may be created solely for conservation purposes-focusing on stream corridors and floodplains, a forested ridgeline, or animal migration routes. It might protect a vista or scenic corridor. In other instances, a Greenway may link existing...

Improved treatment of anisotropic scattering for ultrafast radiative transfer analysis

Brian Hunter & Zhixiong Guo
The necessity of conserving both scattered energy and asymmetry factor for ballistic incidence after finite volume method (FVM) or discrete-ordinates method (DOM) discretization is shown. A phase-function normalization technique introduced previously by the present authors is applied to scattering of ballistic incidence in 3D FVM/DOM to improve treatment of anisotropic scattering through reduction of angular false scattering errors. Ultrafast radiative transfer predictions generated using FVM and DOM are compared to benchmark Monte Carlo to illustrate...

Guns

Minnie Melvin & Peter Jacobs
A challenge project. We were to design a wall hanging that either depicts a form of oppression or reflects freedom from oppressive conditions. I simply used background fabric that had stop signs on it. I added pictures of guns and satin stitched around the art. I quilted the front and backing together and added a thin border in red. The use of guns today is out of control anyone can get a gun.

Healing the warrior’s soul

Jane Berry
The men and women who fight our society’s wars pay a high psychological cost. Levels of mental illness, homelessness, and domestic violence are high, and in 2014 veterans accounted for 18 percent of all deaths by suicide. Clearly this is a significant problem, not just for the veterans and their families, but for society as a whole. This paper examines whether, in caring for veterans, modern medicine can take any lessons from traditional Native American...

Making space on the digital margin

Julian Tavis Dale Burton
The role of online spaces in contemporary youth cultures is an increasingly relevant and vibrant topic of research in a variety of analytical and methodological traditions. This dissertation joins a growing body of work which explores the complex relationship between youth and emerging media through deep interpretive engagement with contextualized questions of meaning and experience. This approach recognizes the diversity of young people's interactions with the digital world and their agency in shaping those interactions....

Variation in trophic niche sizes of terrestrial predators along an elevation gradient

Tiffany Lutz
Environmental gradients and species traits can have important impacts on trophic interactions and communities. Changes in temperature and productivity can directly or indirectly affect the structure of food webs through their influence on the body mass and diversity of organisms. Additionally, functional traits such as hunting mode can select for wider or narrower range of prey diversity influencing consumer-resource interactions and the trophic niches of consumers.Here we used stable isotope analyses (δ13C and δ15N) to...

Improving educational outcomes for STEM students at Rutgers University-Camden

Arthur P. Pelullo
The goal of this thesis is to demonstrate how machine-learning techniques can be used to improve educational outcomes for STEM students at Rutgers University-Camden. The three main areas of focus are: identifying changes in the academic landscape throughout a 15-year period, identifying predictors of student success, and using these predictors to develop a recommendation system to assist at-risk students. The data in the study con- sists of student demographic and academic records from 2003-2017. Simple...

Lead and toxic metals in airborne particulates

The New Jersey Institute of Technology Air Pollution Research Laboratory has carried out the collection and analysis of airborne particulate matter for lead and other toxic metals including arsenic, cadmium, manganese, mercury, nickel and zinc. Samples have been collected in the New Jersey communities of Newark, Rutherford, Clifton, Carlstadt, Bridgewater Township, and Suburban Essex and Union Counties. The average concentrations of these metals are reported for different sampling locations in these communities.

Pilot version of the iCoach assessment system

Alexander Alperin
Research on assessment instruments designed to formatively evaluate instructional coaches is sparse. Twenty-six assessments that evaluate the performance of instructional coaches were found through two comprehensive searches (i.e., internet search and literature search) and only one of these assessments (i.e., Lane, Robbins, & Price, 2013) appears to have supporting psychometric evidence in a peer-reviewed publication. This study presents initial validity evidence of the iCoach Assessment System (Reddy, Glover, Elliott, & Kurz, 2016), an on-line, multi-rater,...

Developing compassionate schools and trauma-informed school-based services

Kristen T. Axelsen
Current research developments have focused on the importance of combining two critical factors, compassion and self-regulation, into trauma-informed care in schools; however, many school-based approaches lack comprehensive or universal application of both constructs. Derived from materials developed through the “Compassionate School Initiative” spearheaded by Hertel and colleagues (2009), the current expanded needs assessment was conducted with the school’s leadership team, 18 K-8 teachers, and 18 fifth grade students who participated in workshops and/or consultations in...

A grounded theory approach to investigating the sibling relationships of individuals with autism spectrum disorders and their typically developing siblings

Caitlyn Cafferty Mehok
The relationships between individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their typically developing siblings were explored using the qualitative methods derived from grounded theory. Ten typically developing siblings between the ages of eleven and sixteen were interviewed regarding their experiences as a sibling of an individual with ASD. An interview protocol of fourteen open ended questions was developed and participants were encouraged to share any additional information which might not have been discussed in response...

Denarius - Sydenham 539a - Crawford 284/1b

Crawford says Marcus Calidius is perhaps the father of Quintus Calidius, praetor of 79.Quintus Metellus may be either Quintus Caecilius Metellus Numidicus, consul of 109, or more likely Quintus Caecilius Metellus Nepos, consul of 98. Gnaeus Fulvius is not otherwise known. Sydenham notes two possible mints, one in northern Italy the other in Cisalpine Gaul, as opposed to Crawford’s indication the coin was minted in Rome. He also notes a date of 106 B.C.E. that...

Quinarius - Sydenham 588 - Crawford 333/1

Crawford says Gaius Egnatuleius is not known to have progressed beyond the quaestorship. Badian questions if Victory on the reverse is writing on the shield.

Quinarius - Sydenham 597 - Crawford 343/2b

Badian questions whether the youth on obverse is Liber. Crawford says the control-marks on 2b are numerals from I to XV, letters of the Latin alphabet, letters of the Greek alphabet and symbols. Sydenham notes a date range of 93-91 B.C.E. which is earlier than the date of 89 B.C.E. indicated by Crawford. (p 351.)

Denarius - Sydenham 600 - Crawford 325/1b

Badian identifies the control mark on the reverse as letter D. Crawford says the moneyer is the brother of C. Sentius C.f., praetor of 94. Sydenham says the coin was minted in the north of Italy in a date range between 100 and 95 B.C.E., slightly later than the date of 101 B.C.E. identifies by Crawford (p 327.)

Three essays on audit technology

Jun Dai
Technology has deeply influenced the evolution of the auditing profession. New technologies such as Industry 4.0, blockchain, and apps, are expected to dramatically change the both current business model and society at large. The audit profession may need to adjust its existing paradigm in order to adapt to such a rapidly changing environment. Moreover, new audit approaches relying on advanced technologies could be used to improve assurance quality. This dissertation consists of three essays that...

Influence of the neostriatal patch system on the prediction-based coding of midbrain dopaminergic neurons

Thomas W. Faust
Dopaminergic neurons of the ventral midbrain signal deviations from expected values, and have profound effects on motivated behavior. It has been hypothesized that these neurons produce these signals by integrating prediction and outcome information from distinct afferent structures, and update representations of prediction by dopamine-dependent synaptic plasticity. I therefore attempted to characterize the coding properties of one of their primary source of synaptic inhibition, the patches of the dorsal striatum, in an attempt to determine...

Internet Privacy in E-Commerce: Framework, Review, and Opportunities for Future Research

J.E. Boritz, Won G. No & R.P. Sundarraj
Increased Internet traffic and the sophistication of companies in tracking that traffic have made privacy a critical issue in electronic commerce (e-commerce). This has spawned a number of research works addressing Internet privacy from the perspectives of three main stakeholders - customers, companies and governments, as well as the interactions among them. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the extant studies and develop an understanding of the relationships among them. Accordingly, we review...

Hobby Lobby and the Zero-Sum Game

Kathryn E. Kovacs
In a zero-sum game, one person’s gain is another person’s loss. Some claims under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act present such zero-sum circumstances in that easing the claimant’s religious burden increases someone else’s burden. This article explores the effect of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores on such zero-sum claims using a paradigmatic example: RFRA claims challenging the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. This inquiry reveals that Hobby Lobby did not open the door for...

Abandoning Administrative Common Law in Mortgage Bankers

Kathryn E. Kovacs
Perez v. Mortgage Bankers Association presents the Supreme Court with the opportunity to eliminate a rule of administrative common law that conflicts with the Administrative Procedure Act (“APA”). When Congress enacted the APA, it deliberately chose to exempt interpretive rules from the Act’s notice-and-comment requirements. The D.C. Circuit nonetheless invalidated a Department of Labor interpretive rule because it did not undergo notice and comment. The Supreme Court should respect the public deliberation reflected in the...
