In 1990, the Arizona Department of Transportation designed and constructed a large scale Asphalt Rubber (AR) test project in Flagstaff, Arizona on the very heavily traffiked Interstate 40. The purpose of the test project was to determine whether a relatively thin overlay with AR could reduce reflective cracking. Asphalt Rubber is a mixture of 80% hot paving(More)
The OneOklahoma Friction Free Network (OFFN) is a dedicated multi-institutional research-only "Science DMZ" network that connects the state's academic Cyberinfrastructure resources -- including all four high performance computing centers -- that is available for use by all Oklahoma academics plus their collaborators. A project of the OneOklahoma(More)
Swept Frequency Source Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) requires high repetition rate and wide spectral width wavelength tunable sources at a low cost. The sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) laser provides wide wavelength tuning range while exhibiting a wavelength switching speed that is among the fastest currently available. The SG-DBR(More)
PURPOSE To compare the effects of six weeks of high intensity interval training (HIIT) vs continuous moderate intensity training (MIT) for improving body composition, insulin sensitivity (SI), blood pressure, blood lipids, and cardiovascular fitness in a cohort of sedentary overweight or obese young men. We hypothesized that HIIT would result in similar(More)
In the era of Big Data, research productivity can be highly sensitive to the availability of large scale, long term archival storage. Unfortunately, many mass storage systems are prohibitively expensive at scales appropriate for individual institutions rather than for national centers. Furthermore, a key issue is the set of circumstances under which(More)
Social justice issues remain some of the most pressing problems in the United States. One aspect of social justice involves the differential treatment of demographic groups in the criminal justice system. While data consistently show that Blacks and Hispanics are often treated differently than Whites, one understudied aspect of these disparities is how(More)
The article by Aiso et al. titled “Compared with the intake of commercial vegetable juice, the intake of fresh fruit and komatsuna (Brassica rapa L. var perviridis) juice mixture reduces serum cholesterol in middle-aged men: a randomized controlled pilot study” does not meet the expected standards of Lipids in Health and Disease. Although the article(More)
Wavelength tunable sampled grating distributed Bragg reflector (SG-DBR) lasers used for telecommunications applications have previously demonstrated the ability for linear frequency ramps covering the entire tuning range of the laser at 100 kHz repetition rates 1. An individual SG-DBR laser has a typical tuning range of 50 nm. The InGaAs/InP material system(More)
Given the increasing evidence that supports the ability of humans to taste non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA), recent studies have sought to determine if relationships exist between oral sensitivity to NEFA (measured as thresholds), food intake and obesity. Published findings suggest there is either no association or an inverse association. A systematic(More)
