—Broadcasting is a commonly used feature in wireless networking, e.g. for file distribution, re-tasking, event notification, or miscellaneous maintenance. Due to the limited resources of most wireless ad hoc and sensor networks, minimizing the cost of broadcasts is of utmost importance. This has led to work in the minimum energy broadcasting problem.(More)
Proteins and their interactions govern virtually all cellular processes, such as regulation, signaling, metabolism, and structure. Most experimental findings pertaining to such interactions are discussed in research papers, which, in turn, get curated by protein interaction databases. Authors, editors, and publishers benefit from efforts to alleviate the(More)
We present a study into the use of smell for searching digi-tal photo collections. Many people now have large photo libraries on their computers and effective search tools are needed. Smell has a strong link to memory and emotion so may be a good way to cue recall when searching. Our study compared text and smell based tagging. For the first stage we(More)
The accuracy of three sterility-testing methods in detecting low-level contamination in deliberately contaminated intravenous solutions was studied. One-liter bags of 5% dextrose (D5W) and 0.9% sodium chloride (saline injections were contaminated with Staphylococcus epidermidis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa; approximately 10(1) viable bacteria were injected(More)
Fluorescence monitoring of the raw and treated water after coagulation-filtration in a drinking water treatment plant in Northeast Ohio was conducted during a period of 32 months. Principal fluorophore groups present in the dissolved organic matter (DOM) of the raw, treated, raw-treated combined water and differential fluorescence data sets comprising over(More)
We present a model-based approach to synthesizing insulin infusion pump usage parameters against varying meal scenarios and physiological conditions. Insulin infusion pumps are commonly used by type-1 diabetic patients to control their blood glucose levels. The amounts of insulin to be infused are calculated based on parameters such as(More)
Retasking and remote programming of sensor networks is an essential functionality to make these networks practical and effective. As the availability of more capable sensor nodes increases and new functional implementations continue to be proposed, these large collections of wireless nodes will need the ability to update and upgrade the software packages(More)
PURPOSE To compare the divergence angles between bioabsorbable interference screws inserted into the femoral tunnel with the screwdriver placed through the anteromedial portal to those inserted with the screwdriver placed through the tibial tunnel and to examine the effect of the femoral tunnel interference screws' divergence angles on fixation strength of(More)
