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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
Temporal and spatial localities are basic concepts in operating systems, and storage systems rely on localities to perform well. Surprisingly, it is difficult to quantify the localities present in workloads and how localities are transformed by storage data path components in metrics that can be compared under diverse settings. In this paper, we introduce(More)
we know the disease is not easy to diagnose particularly in a typical cases. G. S. Graham Smith says: "The clinical manifestations of diphtheria are so divergent that the widest experience cannot hope to diagnose correction clinical grounds alone any but the more typical cases. Even in such cases mistakes are not infrequently made." If this is true of(More)
