• Prospective students. There are now more than 150 doctoral programs and more than 350 master’s programs in computing in the U.S. [1, 4]. Selecting a graduate program has become a formidable task, and it is very difficult to be admitted to the “topranked’’ or “well-known’’ programs. Reports such as this one help identify very good programs that can be(More)
In the absence of research with adult donor offspring, this study begins to bridge that gap by asking individuals about their experiences as donor offspring and considering the implications for psychotherapeutic and counselling practice. Sixteen participants (13 male, three female, age range 26-55 years) recruited through donor insemination support networks(More)
OBJECTIVE Published data show that plasma creatinine falls steadily during the first 28 days of life and that creatinine levels in the neonatal period are higher in more premature infants. However, the best reference data commence on day 2 of life. The objective of this study was to document how plasma creatinine changes in the first 48 hours of life and to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Measurement of the biparietal diameter (BPD) by use of B-mode ultrasound provides a useful means for assessment of gestational age and brain growth in humans during pregnancy. Recording of flow velocity waveforms from the umbilical artery, using Doppler ultrasound, is used to assess development of the fetal placental circulation. We(More)
It is ACM's 40th year and an old debate continues. Is computer science a science? An engineering discipline? Or merely a technology, an inventor and purveyor of computing commodities? What is the intellectual substance of the discipline? Is it lasting, or will it fade within a generation? Do core curricula in computer science and engineering accurately(More)
The preimplantation diagnosis of a HbSA-globin transgene in biopsied trophectoderm cells and blastomeres in embryos using a transgenic mouse model for the trait of human sickle-cell anaemia has been undertaken. A sensitive procedure was developed for the amplification of the human beta-globin gene sequence flanking the sickle mutation. Polymerase chain(More)
Contraception is becoming a common approach for the management of captive and wild ungulates yet there are few data for contraceptive effects on entire populations. Management-level treatment of mares with porcine zona pellucida (PZP) vaccine resulted in zero population growth of the Assateague Island wild horse population within 1 year of initiation of(More)
