Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) were compared in four children who had evidence of intracranial injury caused by shaking. All children had intracranial bleeding, neurologic impairment, and history or physical examination findings suggestive of child abuse. Three had bilateral retinal hemorrhages, and three had visual(More)
Parents of children with PKU completed behavior rating forms for their children three through seven years old. The 25 completed forms represented 79 percent of the families contacted; 16 of the children had PKU and 9 were siblings of children with PKU. Of the 16 children with PKU, 15 were on phenylalanine-restricted diets at the time of the study. The(More)
This paper outlines the design and implementation of Phase Two of the Command and Data Handling (CDH) unit for the WinCube project. WinCube is a multi-year, multi-disciplinary project conducted at the University of Manitoba in which students from different departments participate in the design of a CubeSat. The purpose of the WinCube project is to provide(More)
Anatomical (sexually explicit) rag dolls are frequently used in interviews of children suspected of being sexually abused. Abused children have been noted clinically to be aggressive and sometimes sexually precocious in their doll play, and testimony to that effect is often accepted in the courtroom as pertinent evidence. However, to date, normative data on(More)
This paper examines the inherited persistent behavior of particle swarm optimization and its implications to cognitive machines. The performance of the algorithm is studied through an average particle’s trajectory through the parameter space of the Sphere and Rastrigin function. The trajectories are decomposed into position and velocity along each dimension(More)
The need to train satellite ground station operators is of critical importance for the success of a space mission. An operator is responsible for monitoring the health of a spacecraft and recording of payload data. This paper proposes an architecture that uses an existing ground station for training purposes in the form of emulation. Telemetry is simulated(More)
This paper presents a study of the properties of optimization algorithms for use in cognitive machines through five key measures: (i) speed of convergence, (ii) degree of exploration of the parameter space, (iii) storage and system size, (iv) adaptability, and (v) multi-scale capabilities. Based on these factors, a novel study of the trajectories of a(More)
Designing complex machines and systems that operate in very difficult remote locations, with largely unknown conditions, is very challenging. Specifications for such systems must be extremely detailed and extensive, with input from professionals who have designed such systems before, and who gained considerable experience from their operations. Since much(More)
