Tawni Ferrarini (Economics) co-authoredAdvanced Placement Economics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly,” which was published in Econ Journal Watch 2011: Vol 8, Issue 1:  57-75. Earlier this year, she also posted an Econ Journal Watch podcast titled "Tawni Ferrarini on Advanced Placement Economics."


Neil Russell (Physics) coauthored an article titled "Data tables for Lorentz and CPT violation," which was published in a recent issue of Review of Modern Physics. The project was motivated by the recent proliferation of experimental and theoretical investigations of Lorentz symmetry, which appears to be a foundational feature of space and time. With results being published at a high frequency in dozens of papers and across a broad variety of physics journals, there has been a strong need for a compilation of results. Having worked for some years with an Indiana University theorist on the framework used by experiments to do these investigations, Russell applied for a grant to help complete the compilation. The central purpose was to create a manuscript that would list the results and present a judgmental determination of the current maximal experimental sensitivity to each of the Lorentz-violating background fields. Another goal was to promote the work by giving a presentation at a divisional meeting of the American Physical Society. This work was largely done to provide a service to the growing community of theoretical and experimental physicists who are interested in testing whether nature is "Lorentz symmetric."

NMU chemistry undergraduate student Caity Cienkus co-authored a brief note on the crystal structure determination of compound "2-[(1-{[3-(dimethylazaniumyl)propyl]methylamino}ethylidene)azaniumly]-nonahydro-closo-decaborate dimethyl sulfoxide disolvate" in Acta Crystallographica Section E (2011) E67, o1682-o1683. The work was done primarily by Cienkus, with Rudy Luck of Michigan Technological University solving the structure. 

WNMU-TV and Communications and Performance Studies (CAPS) were cited as a successful example of integrating broadcast and academic units in an article that appeared in School Video News, an online magazine for teachers of TV/video and film. The article was promoting the Mobile Studios Portacast® live production system, which WNMU-TV purchased in partnership with CAPS when a sports and special event course was developed. Students used the system at the 2009 U.S. Olympic Speed Skating Trials and World Cup events to magnify the live action and slow-motion replays throughout the Berry Events Center. The article stated, "It became an indispensible tool for NMU students that provided opportunities to apply course lessons in a real-world, team setting with the common goal of creating high-quality programming for live streaming." In addition to these special applications, CAPS faculty regularly use the system to teach students how to produce NMU football and hockey games, campus concerts, lectures and other live events.
