Mechanistic principles from engineering, meteorology, and soil physics are integrated with ecology and physiology to develop models for prediction of animal behavior. The Mojave Desert biome and the desert iguana are used to illustrate these principles.A transient energy balance model for animals in an outdoor environment is presented. The concepts and(More)
Simulation of manufacturing systems, historically the first major application area of discrete-event process simulation , is becoming a steadily more proactive and important strategy for achieving manufacturing efficiency. Concurrently , lean manufacturing has become a nearly essential corporate strategy to compete successfully in an increasingly austere(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE Emergency department (ED) patients with atrial fibrillation or flutter are at risk of stroke, and guidelines recommend anticoagulation for patients with increased cardiovascular risk. Emergency physicians have a unique opportunity to provide appropriate anticoagulation for such patients, and we wished to investigate whether this was(More)

Virtually every cytology laboratory invests considerable staff time in the entry or log-in of specimens into a laboratory information system. In many cases these systems are not optimized for rapid entry of the data. We describe a combination of two techniques (fastkey/macros and bar code) that has enabled us to reduce the number of keystrokes required for(More)
