We describe the Networked Physical World system, a ubiquitous computing system that integrates the physical world with the virtual world. The instrumentation of non-electronic devices, such as cans of soda and boxes of detergent, with inexpensive, low functionality computing devices enables the virtual world to sense and identify physical objects. The(More)
Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems occupy an increasingly important role in asset-tracking and inventory management systems. Large silicon vendors now produce RFID systems, lowering costs while increasing supply. RFID systems could become inexpensive and offer enough performance to satisfy a wide range of commercial applications, one day(More)
BACKGROUND Dropouts and missing data are nearly-ubiquitous in obesity randomized controlled trails, threatening validity and generalizability of conclusions. Herein, we meta-analytically evaluate the extent of missing data, the frequency with which various analytic methods are employed to accommodate dropouts, and the performance of multiple statistical(More)
Recent evidence suggests that endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) may cause perturbations in endogenous hormonal regulation that predispose to weight gain. Using data from NHANES (1999-2002), we investigated the association between body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC) and selected persistent organic pollutants (POPs) via multiple linear(More)
Objective. We investigated whether perceived exertion, in comparison to the physiological response to exercise, was associated with self-reported vitality, mental health, and physical function during daily activities, or weight control behaviors. Design. Weight-reduced, formerly overweight women (n = 126, aged 22-46 years), completed health and dietary(More)
