Indiana Geological Survey Report of Progress 19; The Salt Creek drainage basin in Monroe, Brown, and Jackson Counties, Indiana was studied to provide basic information for the planning of the Monroe Reservoir. This report principally concerns the dam site and spillway areas of the proposed reservoir. Four units, defined on the basis of engineering characteristics, are present in the reservoir area. Impermeable siltstones of the Borden Group form the valley walls along Salt Creek and will confine the reservoir. Rocks of a second unit, the Harrodsburg and Salem Limestones, cap the ridges high above flood-pool level (556 feet). The two remaining units consist of unconsolidated materials in the valley of Salt Creek. Terrace deposits above the flood plain are sandy to gravelly silts. Valley-fill deposits as much as 70 feet feet thick are presentin the valley of Salt Creek. Clayey silts predominate in the valley fill and forma satisfactory foundation material of low permeability for the dam. Two spillway locations have been considered for the Monroe Reservoir. The first, a short distance from the dam site, would require a channel through about 90 feet of bedrock, the upper 50 feet of which would be the Harrodsburg Limestone. This site would be near the dam...

African-Americans are disproportionately affected with food-related diseases. In fact, making healthy dietary choices—which is a frequent recommendation to reduce overweight and obesity, is not always feasible with presence of food deserts in many low-income communities. Income inequalities are the basis for many of the nation’s health disparities, and individuals’ food management strategies are often shaped by what they can afford and what is available to them. Unfortunately, low-income African-American communities compared to higher-income White communities often lack access to healthy food options and/or are not in close proximity to healthy quality grocery stores (Alwitt & Donley, 1997; Morland, Wing, Diez Roux, & Poole, 2002; Zenk, Schulz, Israel, Kames, Bao, & Wilson, 2005). Therefore, in order to effectively address food related disease within African-American populations, it is important to understand the complexities surrounding eating environments (i.e. social and cultural factors influencing aspects of food purchasing, access to safe and nutritious food and overall food management strategies). The aim of the proposed small-scale study is to examine differences and similarities in food purchase and consumption strategies of African American households during perceived periods of food shortage and financial crisis. A better understanding of food choices and food environments among African American households is essential for the development of appropriate and culturally sensitive public health interventions that inform research and practice. Thus...

In August the Northwest Indiana Coincident Index rose 0.3 points from 139.0 to 139.3. This growth continues a trend of expansion and recovery that is consistent with, but lagging behind slightly, the state and national economy. Due to overall weakness in the index and leading components, the forecast for economic growth over the next six months for the region has been downgraded to weak or no growth (less than 1% growth).

This report was produced as the main deliverable from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Grant 41400692, “A Study of Direct Author Subvention for Publishing Humanities Books at Two Universities.” The Indiana University team led by PI Carolyn Walters, consisted of Jason Baird Jackson, Scott Smart, Nick Fitzgerald, Gary Dunham and Shayna Pekala. The University of Michigan team led by PI James Hilton consisted of Paul Courant, Sidonie Smith, Meredith Kahn, Charles Watkinson, Jim Ottaviani, and Aaron McCollough. Lead authorship of the different sections in this report is indicated in the opening paragraphs. Supplemental data to this report is available at http://hdl.handle.net/2022/20358.; This white paper presents recommendations about how a system of monographic publication fully funded by subventions from authors’ parent institutions might function, based on research activities supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation at Indiana University and the University of Michigan. While the contributors present a strong argument for implementing such an “author subvention” system, they describe a number of challenges and potential unintended consequences. Particular issues discussed include how to determine which publishers would be eligible for support...

Indiana University and Purdue University have collaborated in the development and deploymentof advanced information technology systems and services since before the development of the ILight network. The I-Light network has enabled dramatic new possibilities for collaboration in the development of cyberinfrastructure in the State of Indiana. I-Light, and the cyberinfrastructure created by Indiana and Purdue Universities, has enabled new research discoveries by the State's leading researchers. Collaboration between IU and Purdue has brought significant federal grant money into the state in support of information technology, and the I-Light network has increased the competitiveness of IU and Purdue for major federal funding of research and development activities in the State. The I-Light network has, directly and indirectly, improved the quality of life in Indiana.

The Indiana University Northwest School of Business and Economics developed the NWI Coincident Index to accurately gauge the dynamics of our region's economy. Think of it as a monthly “snapshot“ to measure our region's progress. Are we expanding? Contracting?; In May 2014 the Northwest Indiana Coincident Index rose 0.6 points from 137.6 (revised up from 137.5) to 138.2, the largest single-month increase since February 2012. This strong growth continues the trend of expansion following the significant weather-related decline in the early months of 2014. The forecast for economic growth over the next six months remains optimistic with moderate growth of about 1-2%.

This inventory represents a rough listing of the contents of 67 boxes of packed specimens and one cabinet at the Workingmen's Institute in New Harmony, Indiana that was accomplished in two days. The identifications are based on work by the authors as well as identifications from old labels. Thus some of the names may be out of date, and the listings may be somewhat whimsical in matters of punctuation and capitalization. At the time it was prepared, boxes 1-31 were in the East room of the Attic and Boxes 32-67 were in the West Attic. The authors believe that the bulk of the materials inventoried are from the E.T. Cox collection. The collection also includes numerous small donations from residents in the New Harmony area and large collections of Caldwell, James Sampson and Thomas Say. At the time of the inventory, the items in the Cox Collection were packed in newspapers dating from 1879-1882. The papers were from Tucson, Arizona, Cincinnati, Ohio and Indiana. Many of the fresh-water clams were labeled with the location but not the date.; Indiana University and Indiana Geological Survey
