Coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is one of just two polyploid conifer species and the only hexaploid. Evidence from fossil guard cell size suggests that polyploidy in Sequoia dates to the Eocene. Numerous hypotheses about the mechanism(More)
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) serve the microchip market for designs that need to be created quickly, in small volume, or that need to be updated in the field. FPGAs have not taken over the market for large capacity, high-volume Application-Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) since the FPGA cost is too high. This cost is mainly due to the large(More)
Schools of Library and Information Science (LIS) have often promoted alternative careers as a marketing tool and some students enroll in LIS schools specifically to explore alternative careers. The literature on LIS career patterns continues to suggest that those non-traditional careers are desirable and viable alternatives. Yet the survey research based(More)
Many diseases and health risks are the result of unhealthy lifestyles and technology could be used as an intervention. However, designing healthy lifestyle technologies is challenging, as the technology should be able to influence user behavior. In this case study, the design and evaluation process of a persuasive healthy lifestyle assistance technology was(More)
