Data miners can infer rules showing how to improve either (a) the effort estimates of a project or (b) the defect predictions of a software module. Such studies often exhibit conclusion instability regarding what is the most effective action for different projects or modules.
Existing research is unclear on how to generate lessons learned for defect prediction and effort estimation. Should we seek lessons that are global to multiple projects or just local to particular projects? This paper aims to comparatively evaluate local versus global lessons learned for effort estimation and defect prediction. We applied automated(More)

The life-cycle of Brachylaima cribbi n. sp. was established in the laboratory. Asymmetrical brachylaimid eggs, measuring 26-32 microm (29.1 microm) long and 16 -17.5 microm (16.6 microm) wide, were recovered from human faeces and fed to the helicid land snail Theba pisana as the first intermediate host. Sporocysts and cercariae were recovered from the T.(More)
The Big Australian Speech Corpus project incorporates the strategic goals of 30 Chief Investigators from various speech science areas. Speech from 1000 geographically and socially diverse speakers is being recorded using a uniform and automated protocol plus standardized hardware and software to produce a widely applicable and extensible database – AusTalk.(More)
We present the first human case of anisakidosis acquired from eating locally caught fish in Australia. A 41-year-old woman experienced gastrointestinal pain, vomiting and diarrhoea of increasing severity over 3 weeks. All symptoms resolved spontaneously after a worm was passed in her faeces. Microscopic examination showed that it was a Contracaecum species(More)
The C57BL/6J strain of Mus musculus is susceptible to the terrestrial trematode Brachylaima cribbi. The duration of infection in these mice is generally 9-12 weeks with a peak excretion of eggs at 4 weeks post-infection (wpi). The effects of age and sex on the course of infection were investigated by comparing infections in male and female mice aged 8 or 28(More)
BACKGROUND It has been postulated that bacterial biofilms are involved in the pathogenesis of chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). Biofilms present on sinus mucosa are difficult to eradicate with conventional antibiotic therapy and are thought to provide a nidus for recurrent infection. Topical delivery of antibiotics via nasal irrigation may present a way of(More)
Susceptibility to infection with Brachylaima cribbi was studied in eight strains of inbred mice (AKR, C3H/HeJ, CBA/CaH, BALB/c, DBA/2J, SJL/J, A/J, C57BL/6J) and Swiss albino outbred mice by quantifying faecal egg excretion over the period of the infection. Preliminary experiments indicated that a combination of filtration/sedimentation/diethyl ether(More)
