Military retirees, regarded by the Department of Defense as eligible for pension after twenty years of active duty service, constitute a significant portion of the U.S. labor force, yet it’s unclear which industries they work in after transitioning to the civilian labor force. This research paper has discovered a positive correlation in residence statistics of military retirees in regions with high occurrences of engineering and architecture, business and finance, computer and mathematics, and food service occupations. This study found that the presence of more physically demanding occupations such as nonfarm labor, construction and extraction, and buildings and grounds maintenance occupations have a negative effect on retiree population. Mean annual wages within the identified labor markets have similar effects on retiree population as the number of jobs within those professions.
The Colorado Springs Undergraduate Research Forum (CSURF) is a collaborative venture designed to highlight the accomplishments of undergraduates from Colorado College, the United States Air Force Academy, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. In its eleventh year, the conference has grown to over 450 participants and continues to reflect the commitment and dedication of our faculty and staff to our students from all disciplines. This poster was created for the eleventh annual event held on April 12, 2014, hosted by The United States Air Force Academy.
With the growing concern about climate change, integrated impact assessment models (IAMs) have been developed to assess climate mitigation policies. Previous attempts to endogenize technology into regional climate policy models have assumed learning-by-doing or include a single energy sector. This study corrects for the previous limitations in a regional model of the United States and the rest of the world. A backstop technology and knowledge spillovers are added to the model to improve the model’s capacity to simulate a real policy. Each specification is then simulated under no policy (business as usual), an optimal policy, and restrictions of emissions back to 1995 levels. Since the United States has refused to ratify the Kyoto Protocol, it is particularly important to evaluate climate policies specific to the United States, like the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). This study also aims to evaluate the effectiveness the RGGI by modeling permit-funded R&D in the energy sector.
Dorothea Salo reviews "Managing Research Data" edited by Graham Pryor. This volume aims at providing a high-level snapshot of the current state of the art in research-data policy, planning, management, and preservation. While few readers will find occasion to read every piece included, almost everyone in research libraries will find one or more articles of considerable interest.
Dr. Mary Alice âPinkyâ Hamilton first came to Colorado Springs in 1947 with her sister, Sally, and brother-in-law, Robert M. Stabler, as he joined the Colorado College faculty as a zoologist. A 1933 graduate of Elmira College, New York, Hamilton received her Ph.D. in physiology from Columbia University and from 1939 to 1941 did research at the University of Michigan Medical School. Hamilton became the associate lab director for the Colorado Foundation for Research in Tuberculosis from 1947 to 1952. She began to lecture in zoology at Colorado College in 1950, becoming assistant professor in 1958, associate professor in 1963, professor of biology in 1972, and retiring as professor emerita in 1977. She also assisted her brother-in-law, Robert Stabler, with research projects related to trichomoniasis in pigeons and falcons.
Using nearly 8000 10-K documents published in 2016 and 2017, we generate contextual vectors through artificial neural networks and test whether the language of 10-K documents, without any detailed numeric indicators of financial performance, correlate with earnings per share and other financials of the S&P 500. We find significant correlation between earnings per share and contextual vectors, concluding that semantic analysis is a valuable tool that has great potential in financial analysis.
Introduction to the work of a group of researchers, including CC professor of geology, Christine Siddoway, on the EarthScope Bighorn Project who are using innovative approaches in seismology and structural geology to study the formation of the Laramide Rocky Mountains.
