Read to Succeed

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Daniel, Monica & Tunks, Jeanne L.
Description: This paper discusses research on reading. One of the biggest problems in today's classrooms is the ineffective use of transition times. Transition times are mostly spent re-directing children and attempting to control chaos and confusion in the classroom. This work presents the idea of using re-entry transition times (i.e., returning from lunch, music, etc.) as silent reading. When tested in December 2009, approximately 40% of the children in the authors' classroom were reading at level E, when compared to the other 60% who were reading at G or higher. For six weeks, all children were required to read for five minutes immediately upon entering the classroom from a school event, increasing their reading time up to 25 minutes a day. The results conclusively show that students who have the extra opportunities to read daily have increased their measured reading level from E to H, significantly increasing their reading fluency as measured by running records.

Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art

Date: March 16, 2009
Creator: Kavi, Krishna M.; Akl, Robert G. & Hurson, Ali
Description: This encyclopedia article gives an overview of the broad area of real-time systems. This task is daunting because real-time systems are everywhere, and yet no generally accepted definition differentiates real-time systems from non-real-time systems.

REBEL: Reconfigurable Block Encryption Logic

REBEL: Reconfigurable Block Encryption Logic

Date: September 1, 2006
Creator: Gomathisankaran, Mahadevan & Tyagi, Akhilesh
Description: This paper discusses reconfigurable block encryption logic. Existing block cipher function designs have tended to deploy the secret bits in a specific and limited way. The authors generalize the role of the secret as truth tables of Boolean gates in a carefully designed logic schema.

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Hubby, Desiree & Engen, Ryan
Description: This poster discusses research on rebuilding the world with green BRICs. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and, (2) closing the gap between rich and poor nations to alleviate poverty, especially with respect to energy-poverty in developing countries.

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Rebuilding the World with Green BRICs

Date: April 15, 2010
Creator: Hubby, Desiree & Engen, Ryan
Description: This paper discusses research on rebuilding the world with green BRICs. Developed nations grew rich, in part, through over exploiting natural resources, dumping greenhouse gases and other pollutants into the atmosphere, and encouraging consumerist lifestyles with little concern for the long-term effects on our collective home, plant Earth. Today, these patterns are being replicated in developing nations. In countries such as Brazil, Russia, India, and China (BRICs), there is a rising global middle class that desires to live an American-style of life, complete with cars, refrigerators, air conditioners, and other sources of pollution. Factors contributing to this social, economical, and global problem include inadequate responses to climate change, increases in global consumption, and dangerous dependency on non-renewable resources of energy. What is needed is a Green Energy Revolution, which includes development of an energy policy in developing countries. Specifically, the international community needs to collectively explore green, energy-efficient ways of living and producing that include (1) switching from the use of fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy alternatives and more efficient systems, and (2) focusing on developing and implementing green policy in these countries.
