Dolcey Chaplin  likes to say that she helps put New Jersey to work.  Chaplin, an attorney by profession, is the executive director of the Defense Procurement Technical Assistance Center (DPTAC) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). The Center is a free source of practical education and useful assistance for the New Jersey business community to help obtain government contracts. >>
NJIT signed an agreement to fund the Defense Procurement Technical Assistance Center (DPTAC), a free source of practical education and useful assistance for the New Jersey business community to help obtain government contracts. >>
A group of 20 Albert Dorman Honors College (ADHC) Scholars visited Washington, DC on March 19 and 20, 2004 at the special invitation of Congressman Donald M. Payne. The students were accompanied by three ADHC staff members, including Dr. David Reibstein, associate dean; Shane Williamson, assistant dean for academics; and Lois Chipepo, assistant to the dean. “The students had a more comprehensive and personal visit than that of the ordinary tourist,” said Dr. Reibstein.  “In addition to insight into the workings of the federal government, the students also learned about the many career opportunities in government for graduates with technical degrees.” >>
Scientists who monitor Earth's reflectance by measuring the moon's earthshine have observed unexpectedly large climate fluctuations during the past two decades.  By combining eight years of earthshine data with nearly twenty years of partially overlapping satellite cloud data, they have found a gradual decline in the Earth's reflectance that became sharper in the last part of the 1990's, perhaps associated with the accelerated global warming in recent years.  Surprisingly, the declining reflectance reversed completely in the past three years.  Such changes, which are not understood, seem to be a natural variability of the Earth's clouds. >>
Despite what you might have read lately in the news about earth dimming, researchers at NJIT's Big Bear Observatory in California have uncovered evidence to the contrary. Their findings, to be reported in the May 28 issue of Science, suggest that earth is brightening. The research combines observations of the ghostly glow of light reflected from earth onto the dark side of the moon, known as earthshine, with NASA cloud data from satellites. The scientists suggest that observing earthshine offers a simple method for monitoring climate change and variations in cloud cover. >>
