    Title: Intensity Mapping of The Smith Cloud

    Description: The Smith Cloud was first discovered by Gail Bieger, née Smith in 1963. It is a high-velocity cloud of hydrogen gas and is moving towards the galaxy at a speed more than 100 km/s. We took observations of the cloud to map it on a 20-meter Radio telescope at the Green Bank Observatory, Green Bank WV. We accumulated data in 360-second intervals, recorded over 4096 different frequencies centered on the 1420.41 MHz frequency. When an observation ran with the telescope, it scanned a 0.5 by 0.5-degree block in the sky. This year, our observations occurred in a 16 block ring from (l 37, b -12) to (l 39, b -14). This is a 1 block outward expansion upon last year’s data in a 9 block box from (l 37.5, b -12.5) to (l 38.5 ,b -13.5). Our objective was to refine our method of calculation using polynomials to better approximate background radiation and to expand our area of observation into lower density regions that were much more difficult to analyze. This pushed our equipment and methods of analysis close to their limit of sensitivity that we determined to be 12.3 K. This gave us a much better understanding of our capabilities with this telescope moving forward for future research. Finally, we mapped our results against data taken from The Green Bank Telescope to check for accuracy.

    Description: In this study, we examined the similarities between the sustainability reports of 15 multinationals on the 2016 Corporate Knight’s Global 100 list with a presence in both the United States and India: BMW, Adidas, Reckitt Benckiser Group, Coca-Cola Enterprises, L’Oreal, Novo Nordisk, H&M Hennes& Mauritz, KoninklijkePhilips, Diageo, Intel, Kering, LG Electronics, ING Group, Unilever, and Daimler. So, we recorded how many times the information on the sustainability sections of their websites fit each of the 5 categories from the 2014 Greendex study: food source and consumption, transportation, energy use, waste disposal, and purchase of environmentally friendly products. We found that the percentages of the amount of information for each of the 5 categories from the 2014 Greendex study were the same for the 15 companies’ websites in both the United States and India. We also discovered that waste disposal and the environmentally friendly products categories were discussed the most, followed by energy use. Food source and consumption, and transportation, were mentioned the least. Finally, many companies only had one general corporate website. It is important that companies start to take a more multi-national approach and create different websites for each country, so that they can tailor the sustainability information that they release to their specific consumers.

    Description: Social Engineering attacks the most vulnerable victim of all - "The Average Human". The average human being is someone who is trusting of those around them. Social Engineering can take the form of impersonation, bribery, or deception to obtain personal information. One of the most popular methods of Social Engineering is called Phishing, which is the practice of sending emails or webpages appearing to be from a reputable source with the goal of gaining more information through users' inputting their personal information.

  10. Passive Mechanical Walkers are a Proxy for Studying Dynamic Balance in Human Gait.pdf [Download]

    Title: Passive Mechanical Walkers are a Proxy for Studying Dynamic Balance in Human Gait.pdf

    Description: Passive mechanical walkers have been shown to be proxies for the study of human gait. Both humans and walkers can be modeled as inverted pendulums wherein the center of mass pivots passively over the foot. Previous studies have largely examined similarities in energy efficiency and stability based on Lyapunov exponents computed on various gait parameters. This study examines the similarities between human and passive-dynamic walkers using the duPont balance index (DN). DN measures the excursion of the COM in a coordinate system defined by the line joining the feet (IFL). Furthermore, since balance loss via tripping or slipping induces a rotation of the subject, moment of inertia (MOI) considerations also play a role. It is seen that for both walkers and humans, the IFL coordinate system tracks with the principle MOI and that the MOI about the IFL is less than that about either foot axis indicating that the IFL is a preferred axis of rotation for potential falls. Such rotation is noted during actual falls of passive dynamic walkers.
