    Abstract:

    Lead exposure in SJC continues to be a persistent, complex public health issue. Data released in December 2016 showed that census tract 6 in South Bend had the highest rates of EBLL in the state of Indiana. Because lead exposure can produce significant cognitive and physiological damage even at very low levels of exposure, immediate action was required. Understanding what the epidemiologic profile of lead in SJC was among the first steps taken to address this issue. The St. Joseph Coun…

    Abstract:

    Obesity rates in the U.S. for both children and adults are alarmingly high, particularly for those in low-income households. The current project, a partnership between Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties Head Start Consortium and the University of Notre Dame’s William J. Shaw Center for Children and Families, focused on reducing obesogenic home environments for low-income families. Focusing on home environments, particularly for young children, is important because research shows that mothers are…

    Description:

    The Mexican patent database collects data on all patents issued in Mexico from roughly 1840 to the onset of the Mexican Revolution in 1911, totaling approximately thirteen thousand five hundred (13,500) discrete patent records. At present, this is the most comprehensive record of patents issued by Mexican governments during the nineteenth century. There is no single archival or published source that contains a comprehensive list or data on Mexican patents issued over the course of the long …

    Abstract:

    This report is a direct result of consultation with the research communities funded by the Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) Directorate at the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of this effort is to provide feedback to NSF on current best practices with regard to research data curation, discovery, access, preservation, and re-use, and suggestions for areas of improvement and investment that could facilitate broader curation of, access to, and re-use of research data in the fu…

    Abstract:

    Sea-spray droplets ejected into the air-sea boundary layer take part in a series of complex transport processes. To model the air-sea exchange of heat under high-wind conditions, it is important yet challenging to understand influences of evaporative droplets in the atmospheric boundary layer. We implement a high-resolution Eulerian-Lagrangian algorithm with varied droplets laden in a turbulent open-channel flow to reveal the dynamic and thermodynamic characteristics of droplets. Our past num…

    Abstract:

    Industrial software systems are often systems of systems (SoS) whose full behavior only emerges at runtime. The systems and their interactions thus need to be continuously monitored and checked during operation to determine compliance with requirements. Many requirements monitoring approaches have been proposed. However, only few of these come with tools that present and visualize monitoring results and details on requirements violations to end users such as industrial engineers. In this tool…

    Abstract:

    The iconic Hesburgh Library building was nearing its 50th anniversary when review of the facilities program began in advance of renovation planning. This talk centers on graduate student workspaces, in particular closed study carrels that were characterized as ‘mop closets’ by some occupants. In 2013, review of existing data and feedback informed the initial planning for renovation of one tower floor in the library and its graduate student spaces. Through a series of focus groups, ope…

    Abstract:

    Confusion and frustration are two of the emotions often felt by undergraduates when they are expected to do library research. They do no know where to start, and are unable to select appropriate terms or sources to search. Furthermore, instructors overestimate the literature research skills of their students. In CHEM 23201, a required one semester course, we introduced a research strategy worksheet as a way to guide students on things to consider when searching the literature. We assumed that…
