A description of a study conducted by Duane Millslagle, associate professor, Morris Levy, assistant professor, and Nickolas Matack, former undergraduate student, HPER Department, entitled, “Comparative Kinematic Measures of Treadmill Running With Or Without Body Weight Support in Running,” was published in the Journal of Sport Science and Medicine (2005), 4, 583-589. The study compared full body weight to body weight support treadmill running using common kinematic measures associated with running.

A Web site designed to educate the public on minimizing stream pollution received a Technical Excellence Award from the North American Lake Management Society (NALMS) in November. The award recognizes LakeSuperiorStreams.org for “outstanding research in stream and lake restoration, protection and management.” It was accepted by Rich Axler (NRRI) and Jesse Schomberg of Minnesota Sea Grant at the annual NALMS International Symposium, “Lake Effects: Exploring the Relationship between People and Water,” held in Madison, Wisconsin. The website incorporates real-time water quality data with an educational site design toolkit.
