“It appears that the levee failures in New Orleans were induced by subsurface seepage through the soils, not by overtopping,” said John Schuring, PhD and PE, professor of civil and environmental engineering at NJIT. “Given the fact that the levees were built and retrofitted many times over the years, and also given the fact that other weaknesses in the soil may exist, care must be taken when the city is dewatered to avoid another failure.” >>

“Science is getting closer and closer to manipulating and understanding the aging process,” Dr. Donald Louria told the more than 200 faculty, staff and students who attended the Honors College Colloquium on April 4, 2005 in the Campus Center Ballroom. Louria, professor of preventive medicine and community health, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School, said that while rapid scienfitic advances in genetic manipulation, nanotechnology and stem cell research will make it possible for humans to live 110 to 120 years and beyond by the end of this century, society needs to face the consequences of increased life expectancy, including quality of life, overpopulation, and increased health expenditures. "This is a very exciting time," Louria said. “It's not whether or not we figure out the aging process, but when.” >>

Under the guidance of NJIT's Homeland Security Technology Systems Center and the Passaic County Prosecutor's office, the “Model School” pilot program in the West Paterson schools will build on the “Model Mall” program now under way at the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus. Donald H. Sebastian, PhD, senior vice president of research and development and director of the Homeland Security Technology Systems Center at NJIT, provided comments at a press conference this morning at which Acting Governor Richard J. Codey launched the "Model School" program that will develop innovative ways to use technology in the effort to keep schools secure from terrorism.  As with “Model Mall,” the program will include smart security cameras that can be programmed to tell the difference between normal school behavior and possible terrorist behavior. >>
