Light magic

Katherine Emily Callahan
Light Magic is a novel about suburban Jersey girls Chloe and Zarin, who have been faithful friends since meeting as 4th grade outsiders. Even into their twenties, the dorky pals remain bonded by their shared avoidance of alcohol and sex, passion for prayer, and obsession with Max Hazel, a wildly popular series of books about a boarding school for witches. The fact that Zarin is the Muslim daughter of Pakistani immigrants and that Chloe is...

2002 Great Swamp Lakes and Ponds Study

No Name Supplied
The document reports the results of one-day lake surveys performed on 15 of the 231 lakes in the Great Swamp Watershed to follow up a similar study that was completed in 2001.

The water quality of the lakes in 2002 is compared with the water quality of the lakes in 2001.

Providing Quality of Service Guarantees Using Only Edge Routers

Sudeept Bhatnagar & Brett J. Vickers
Providing strict bandwidth guarantees to packet flows in the Internet is an inherently challenging task. It requires signaling mechanisms, policing mechanisms, accurate and rapid accounting of network resources, and call admission control. We present a novel protocol that provides bandwidth guarantees to Internet packet flows. This protocol, called the Edge-assisted Quality of Service (EQOS) protocol, requires modifications to only a subset of an administrative domain’s routers, namely the edge routers on the domain’s periphery. Legacy...

Autonomous transport protocols for content-based networks

Florin Sultan, Aniruddha Bohra & Liviu Iftode
In this paper, we argue for a new approach to reliable transport protocols in which connections are established between endpoints in a generic content-based network. In such a network, endpoints are named by content and mapped to host addresses using a content-based location and routing sheme. We identify two key design priniples for autonomous protools: (i) an endpoint name spae deoupled from the network host address space and (ii) relaxed end-to-end semantis, whih allows intermediate...

From variable to optimal grammar: evidence from language acquisition and language change

Galit Adam
Ever since the advent of generative theory, there has been a dispute in linguistics between formalist and functionalist approaches. At stake in this controversy is the autonomy thesis: i.e. the claim that linguistic knowledge is independent from, and irreducible to, the facts of language use. Under the autonomist view, language is both arbitrary and self-contained. Currently, the radically autonomous vision of syntax that is being pursued in Chomskyan circles has lent new urgency to the...

Effects of reinforcement histories on communication modality preference

Sarah Jane Luem
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by deficits in communication. Training in vocal approximations and/or augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) modes may be required to overcome these deficits. Because it may be difficult to determine a best communication fit for each student, one solution is to assess students' preference for the different communication topographies. Several factors have been found to influence preference, including parameters of reinforcement, parameters of a response, reinforcement histories, and stimulus cues....

Keeping castles out of the sand

Judd Schechtman
Unprecedented losses from natural disasters in recent years have awakened coastal communities to the increasing risks from climate change. Many are choosing to adapt on their own, yet many others may not know where to begin. To address this gap in knowledge and help disseminate information on adaptation strategies, a mixed-methods study was undertaken to inventory and assess the performance of locally-driven climate adaptation strategies in 34 coastal communities in the Northeast US from Maine...

The efficacy of chitosan-based coating in reducing surface attached Salmonella on tomatoes

Yi-Chun Lai
Recently, an increasing number of outbreaks related to produce consumption have been reported. Tomatoes are considered as one of the main produce consumed in the United States; approximately 14 million tons of tomatoes are produced every year. However, the microbial safety of raw tomatoes has been questioned following many outbreaks associated with eating tomatoes contaminated with human pathogens. The CDC reports that eating raw tomatoes caused at least 12 Salmonella multistate outbreaks from 1990-2009, and...

Have majority-minority districts fulfilled the promise of the Voting Rights Act?

John C. Lesher
The response of Southern states to the Fifteenth Amendment’s grant of voting rights to former slaves was nearly a century of self-serving interpretations of the Fifteenth Amendment that resulted in “voter dilution”—the de facto disenfranchisement of Blacks throughout the former Confederacy. This dissertation will examine the relative success or failure of the remedies for vote dilution embodied in the 1965 Voting Rights Act (VRA), in particular the concept of the “majority-minority” congressional district. In 1965,...

Multi-sensor movement analysis for transport safety and health applications

Katarzyna Sila-Nowicka & Thakuriah, Piyushimita (Vonu)
Recent increases in the use of and applications for wearable technology has opened up many new avenues of research. In this paper, we consider the use of lifelogging and GPS data to extend fine-grained movement analysis for improving applications in health and safety. We first design a framework to solve the problem of indoor and outdoor movement detection from sensor readings associated with images captured by a lifelogging wearable device. Second we propose a set...

Keeping our Garden State green

No Name Supplied
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...
