— Vehicular sensor networks are emerging as a new network paradigm of primary relevance, especially for proac-tively gathering monitoring information in urban environments. Vehicles typically have no strict constraints on processing power and storage capabilities. notification to drivers or police agents). In this novel and challenging mobile environment,(More)
The mobility model is one of the most important factors in the performance evaluation of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Traditionally, the random waypoint mobility model has been used to model the node mobility, where the movement of one node is modeled as independent from all others. However, in reality, especially in large scale military scenarios,(More)
In this paper we study the use of vehicles as sensors in a " vehicular sensor network, " a new network paradigm that is critical for gathering valuable information in urban environments. In a vehicular sensor network, each vehicle is responsible for sensing one or more events, routing messages to other vehicles or Infostations and processing sensed data.(More)
Clostridium scindens American Type Culture Collection 35704 is capable of converting primary bile acids to toxic secondary bile acids, as well as converting glucocorticoids to androgens by side-chain cleavage. The molecular structure of the side-chain cleavage product of cortisol produced by C. scindens was determined to be(More)
Nowadays, inter-domain routing for MANETs draws increasing attention because of military and vehicular applications. The challenges in wireless, mobile inter-domain routing include dynamic network topology, intermittent connectivity, and routing protocol heterogeneity. The existing Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is the de facto inter-domain routing protocol(More)
Vehicle communications are becoming a reality, driven by navigation safety requirements and by the investments of car manufacturers and Public Transport Authorities. As a consequence many of the essential vehicle grid components (radios, Access Points, spectrum, standards, etc.) will soon be in place (and paid for) paving the way to unlimited opportunities(More)

Silibinin, a flavonoid derived from the herb milk thistle (Silybum marianum), has been used as a hepato-protectant in the clinical treatment of liver disease. In the present study, the effect of silibinin on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced neuroinflammatory impairment in rats is investigated. Injection of LPS into lateral ventricle caused learning and(More)
Advertisements, are the most important source of revenue for some of the biggest Internet-based companies. With vehicular networks poised to become part of the Internet in the near future, this new " edge " of the Internet represents a new frontier that companies will be striving to reach. In this paper we investigate the feasibility of targeted(More)
