The Great Depression collided with a wave of natural disasters, including the Dust Bowl and devastating floods of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. Recovering from these calamities—and preventing their reoccurrence—was a major goal of the New Deal. In Nature's New Deal: The Civilian Conservation Corps and the Roots of the American Environmental Movement (Oxford University Press, 2007), NJIT author and professor Neil M. Maher recounts the history of one of Franklin D. Roosevelt's boldest and most successful experiments, the Civilian Conservation Corps. >>

During a lecture at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), Kenneth Deffeyes, professor emeritus at Princeton University, sounded a dire warning about global oil production and consumption: Major oil-producing nations and energy companies, he said, know that the production and consumption of oil are decreasing oil reserves that cannot be replaced. >>
Supertron, a start-up technology company housed in the small business incubators at NJIT, announced today that it has begun developing a cryogenic coil to improve Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanners. Erzhen Gao, PhD, director of research and development for the company, will lead the effort. “Eventually, we hope to see our system upgrade existing MRI scanners because our coils can enhance installed MRIs, enabling them to produce cleaner, clearer and easier-to-read images at an affordable price,” he said. >>
