Epithelial surfaces throughout the body continuously sample and respond to environmental stimuli. The accessibility of lung epithelium to inhaled therapies makes it possible to stimulate local antimicrobial defences with aerosolized innate immune ligands. This strategy has been shown to be effective in preclinical models, as delivery of innate immune(More)

The purpose of this study was to examine the structure of tacit knowledge in the nursing profession. Using research in implicit learning and practical intelligence as a theoretical framework, a paper-and-pencil measure of tacit knowledge for nurses was developed and refined. Five models, each representing an established theory of traditional intelligence,(More)
This paper explores the design and implementation of the Fast Integer Search (FIS) algorithm. We discuss work previously done on the topic of integer searches and then present our own solution to this problem. Our solution uses a combination of existing data structures; the trie, the linked list and the hash table in an attempt to achieve a running time of(More)
SYNOPSIS The advantage of establishing routine collaboration between European national and multinational agencies to maximise benefits from operational monitoring programmes has been recognised by EuroGOOS. However, in practice, such collaboration has proven difficult to establish and sustain, partially as a result of funding constraints. Nevertheless as(More)
Temporal and spatial locality are often discussed concerning various file-system and storage related areas. Although commonplace however, the current research methods to accurately quantify this characteristic are still not mature. In this paper we attempt to observe and analyze the effects that memory size, web-crawlers, and duration have on locality(More)
Modern storage consists of many optimizations along the data path, from the front-end file system cache and disk layout management to the back-end disk controller cache and on-disk caching. Various components generally exploit the temporal and spatial localities of a workload to improve performance. However, how localities of a workload are transformed by(More)
Four elements of fire reaction are delineated: investigating, reporting, suppressing, and evacuating areas in which fires are present. Important issues in the acquisition, maintenance, and generalization of fire reaction skills for developmentally disabled persons are identified and reviewed. Learning-based treatment strategies and fire safety literature(More)

The partial credit model, which is a special case of the Rasch measurement model, was presented as a useful way to develop and refine complex nursing assessments. The advantages of the Rasch model over the classical psychometric model were presented including the lack of bias in the measurement process, the ability to highlight those items in need of(More)
