The Stages of Change model has become a prominent feature within health promotion and most of the literature associated with the model portrays it as being 'effective'. Based on an extensive review of the literature, this paper suggests that contrary to this view, there exist a relative paucity of sufficiently strong supportive evidence. The paper describes(More)
Most known cases of affix controlled accentuation patterns involve local accent assignment: prefixes assign root-initial accents whereas suffixes assign root-final accents. In this paper we document the non-local accentuation behavior of [-zu], a recently-emerged suffix in Japanese which an elicitation study reveals to be productively(More)
This paper discusses one of the key challenges of design-for-yield: namely, the difficulty in correlating observed behavior with modeled behavior. In order to achieve good parametric yield, the design process must account for a large number of sources of variability in the silicon, ranging from those inherent in the device and wire models themselves through(More)
A large amount of the information processing carried out by the brain is carried out outside of and (relatively) independent of the conscious awareness. These nonconscious mechanisms operate at the level of initial acquisition and interpretation of information, and also in the development of complex cognitive frameworks that structure thinking and can be(More)
As a mass produced device which can be programmed according to application, the microprocessor is an obvious choice of component in hospital instrumentation for a wide range of activities from routine surveillance and process control to individual research projects. Until recently the development of an instrument from the naked processor has often proved to(More)
