Numerous federal, state, and local regulations, coupled with health education and tobacco cessation initiatives have been launched to address these effects.

The mission of Clark Clear the Air is to propose various and creative ways ...

Leveraging Decision Making In Cyber Security Analysis Through Data Cleaning, Chen Zhong, Hong Liu, Awny Alnusair

Southwestern Business Administration Journal

Security Operations Centers (SOCs) have been built in many institutions for intrusion detection and incident response. A SOC employs various cyber defense technologies to continually monitor and control network traffic. Given the voluminous monitoring data, cyber security analysts need to identify suspicious network activities to detect potential attacks. As the network monitoring data are generated at a rapid speed and contain a lot of noise, analysts are so bounded by tedious and repetitive data triage tasks that they can hardly concentrate on in-depth analysis for further decision making. Therefore, it is critical to employ data cleaning methods in cyber situational ...

Marketing Process At The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Promote Avenue Q, Bridget Fleischer

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

When producing a stage show, whether on Broadway or the local playhouse, every decision must be made with marketing in mind. Arranging television spots, designing flyers, analyzing market research; promotion is only one area of marketing considerations. Theater is a business. Artistic merit is important to consider, but no show will be made without a customer value proposition in mind. Because of this, it is especially fortunate to be able to market a wide-appeal musical that holds artistic merit. This creative project outlines the inner workings of the Nebraska Repertory Theatre, including the production, casting, and promotion that went into ...
