CO 2 capture and storage (CCS) is receiving considerable attention as a potential greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation option for fossil fuel power plants. Cost and performance estimates for CCS are critical factors in energy and policy analysis. CCS cost studies necessarily employ a host of technical and economic assumptions that can dramatically affect(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of IV methylprednisolone (IVMP) on brain fraction volume (BFV), contrast-enhancing (CE) lesions, and white matter lesion load (WMLL) in patients with relapsing-remitting MS treated for acute exacerbations. BACKGROUND MRI metrics of MS disease activity are being used as outcome measures in early phase treatment trials,(More)
Technological innovations in CO 2 capture and storage technologies are being pursued worldwide under a variety of private and government-sponsored R&D programs. While much of this R&D is directed at novel concepts and potential breakthrough technologies, there are also substantial efforts to improve CO 2 capture technologies already in use. In this paper,(More)
As part of DOE/NETL's Carbon Sequestration Program, we are developing an integrated, multi-pollutant modeling framework to evaluate the costs and performance of alternative carbon capture and sequestration technologies for fossil-fueled power plants. The model calculates emissions, costs, and efficiency on a systematic basis at the level of an individual(More)

This essay offers key highlights from a panel discussion that took place at the 2014 National Association of Communication Centers (NACC) conference at Arizona State University – West in Glendale, Arizona. The panel included communication center directors from across the United States. Each participant was asked to describe assessment efforts at their(More)
Brain Tumors are detected efficiently by using the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) techniques. The extracted MRI image is sensitive to noise which limits the visibility of certain characteristics of the image. This unwanted noise can be disintegrated and curtailed from the original Image by using the non linear digital median filter. The intensification is(More)
When do states defend their reputations? States sometimes pay heavy costs to protect their reputations, but other times willingly take actions that could tarnish them. What accounts for the difference? This paper investigates the sources of reputation-building in the context of coercive diplomacy. It argues that fears about the future drive(More)
This study was undertaken to assess speech discrimination under binaural listening with background noise in hearing-impaired subjects. Subjects (58 sensori-neural, 23 conductive, and 19 mixed) were administered an indigenous version of W-22 PB words under: Condition I--Quiet--chamber noise below 28 dB with speech at 60 dB; and at a constant signal-to-noise(More)
