The Graduate Curriculum Committee will begin its meeting cycle early on August 21 at 2:00 p.m. in UH 282. The early meeting is to allow enough time for the Department of Nursing to meet the Board of Regents deadline for submission of their Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program. The call for applications for graduate assistant positions will be going out(More)
This study examines the associations, and possible causal relationship, between mothers' authoritarian attitudes to discipline and child behaviour using cross-sectional and prospective data from a large population sample surveyed in the 1970 British Cohort Study. Results show a clear linear relationship between the degree of maternal approval of(More)
Results from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climatic Change (IPCC) tropospheric photochemical model intercomparison (PhotoComp) are presented with a brief discussion of the factors that may contribute to differences in the modeled behaviors of HO x cycling and the accompanying 03 tendencies. PhotoComp was a tightly controlled model experiment in which the(More)
The development and iterative refinement of inference models for multimodal systems can be challenging and time intensive. We present a framework for multimodal data collection, visualization, annotation, and learning that enables system developers to build models using various machine learning techniques, and quickly iterate through cycles of development,(More)
We report on acute and transient dyskinesia occurring within hours of taking modified-release methylphenidate (Concerta XL) in a stimulant-naïve 7-year-old boy who had recently stopped taking risperidone. We propose that the mechanism of this adverse drug reaction is likely to be an interaction between supersensitive dopamine receptors and acute exposure to(More)
This paper considers two questions, one broad and thus more a series of further questions, the other more practical and with a particular suggestion for action. This paper emerges from a July 2002 conference about lexica and few would be willing to argue that classicists could not improve upon the foundations left to us by Liddell, Scott, Jones, and the(More)

Reducing the timing uncertainty associated with clock edges has become an exceedingly difficult problem as clock frequencies in high-performance processors increase past several gigahertz. Absolute quantities of skew and jitter that were insignificant at lower frequencies now consume an increasingly large percentage of each clock cycle and directly reduce(More)
