    Abstract:

    Some of the world’s best coffee is grown in Ethiopia, where the livelihoods of 1.5 million small farmers depend on selling their superior beans at a fair price. But in the late 1990s and early 2000s, prices in the global coffee market plummeted. To gain some premium pricing, the Ethiopian government sought to trademark the names of its coffee regions, but the coffee giant Starbucks stood in the way. Oxfam America, the small NGO which was challenging the “rigged rules” of international trade…

    Abstract:

    The Peace Agreement signed between the Government of Colombia and the Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia (FARC-EP) in November 2016 has been recognized as one of the most comprehensive peace agreements signed following civil conflict. According to the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, as of November 2020, 28 percent of the Agreement’s commitments were fully implemented and an additional 18 percent had an intermediate level of implementation, which overall is considered good …

    Abstract:

    Oxfam, the international nongovernmental organization, was rocked by press revelations in 2018 of sexual misconduct in its 2011 Haiti humanitarian operations following the devasting earthquake there. The scandal, which occurred amid a crescendo of the #MeToo movement, challenged the new leader of Oxfam’s American affiliate with not only managing the reputational crisis, but also with pressing the organization and the larger NGO sector to make a systems change and a cultural shift on sexual ex…

    Greene, Edward Lee, 1843-1915.
    Abstract:

    In addition to botanical specimens, [Edward Lee Greene (August 20, 1843–November 10, 1915)] collected rare books and herbals on pre-Linnean botany. He began building his personal library early in his career as a botanist, and by the time his career was drawing to a close, he felt that his library was “the pioneer among American collections of pre-Linnaean, and rare though important post-Linnaean, books of botany.” He managed to assemble an excellent collection of journals, monograp…

    Abstract:

    The O’Meara Mathematics Library served as a departmental branch library from 1952 until 2020, with most of the collection directed toward supporting faculty and graduate student research. It also housed the Morse collection. In June 2020, the branch library in Hayes-Healey Hall closed, and the collections and services were relocated to the Hesburgh Library.

    Abstract:

    Afghanistan stands on the brink of an historic, albeit precarious, peace between the Taliban and the National Unity Government that presents both challenges and opportunities. On the one hand, such a peace would open new ground for reconstruction and development by eliminating, or at least diminishing significantly, the armed conflict that has plagued Afghanistan for decades. On the other, bringing conservative Taliban policies into the formal structures of governance threatens to roll-back t…

    Abstract:

    In January 2020, the EPA plans to issue a supplement to its 2018 proposed rule, Strengthening Transparency in Regulatory Science. The revised rule may prohibit the EPA from using any research for which underlying raw data and models are not made public. In the December 6, 2019 issue of Science, Dr. Marie Lynn Miranda, Director of CEHI, provided explanation of why such a rule would jeopardize regulations that aim to keep the environment a safe place for all of us to live.

    Abstract:

    Disclosed are then inorganic membranes having a defined topography that includes pores having a defined diameter of nanometer and sub-nanometer diameter. The thin membranes are resistant to protein denaturing agents, and may be employed in analytical and clinical methods for identifying single amino acid residues within the sequence of a protein and the pores are other than NspA pores. Methods for making a thin inorganic membrane with nanopore and sub-nanopore topography and conical cone stru…

    Abstract:

    As climate changes, coastal homeowners are potentially crucial actors in reducing the risks to property and human life from rising seas and increased hurricane activity. Absent strict, enforceable regulations mandating retrofitting of existing homes or major changes in homeowner insurance requirements, coastal resilience in a changing climate will largely reflect private, voluntary decisions of millions of individuals. However, research is scarce on the current risk level of U.S. coastal home…

    Abstract:

    Thanks to improvements in biomedical research, biomechanics now combines physiotherapy with models and simulations using motion capture systems. Among possible movements, the lunge motion is often studied as it is a common exercise for muscular training and rehabilitation in which the hip extensors are the dominant muscles. Long and deep lunges are of particular interest because they require greater hip motion in both front and rear legs. In this thesis, markerless motion capture data from 12…
