U sing the racial integration of national labor unions as a case study, I find that courts played an important and meaningfully autonomous role in integrating unions while elected officials largely failed to act. Courts, unlike elected officials, offered civil rights groups relatively easy access to the legal agenda. In response to thousands of cases in(More)
With processor and memory technologies pushing the performance limit, the bottleneck is clearly shifting towards the system interconnect. Any solution that addresses PCI's bus-based interconnect, which has serious scalability problems, must also protect the huge legacy infrastructure. PCI Express provides such an evolutionary approach and allows a smooth(More)
The memory wall (the gap between processing and storage speeds) remains a concern to computer systems designers. Caches have played a key role in hiding the performance gap by keeping recently ac-cessed information in fast memories closer to the processor. Multi and many core systems are placing severe demands on caches, exacerbating the performance(More)
Integration of a tactile display onto the end effector of a robot allows free-hand exploration of an encountered-type environment that provides both kinesthetic and cutaneous feedback. A novel tactile display approach, called Haptic Jamming, uses a combination of particle jamming and pneumatics to control the stiffness and shape of a surface. The tactile(More)
in existence for only a few decades, the field of American political development (APD) has been an agent of many changes within the discipline of political science. It has been a leading force in the re-discovery of institutions; it has bolstered a comparative approach to American politics; it has helped to draw attention to previously neglected issues such(More)

We measure media bias by estimating ideological scores for several major media outlets. To compute this, we count the times that a particular media outlet cites various think tanks and policy groups, then compare this with the times that members of Congress cite the same groups. Our results show a strong liberal bias: all of the news outlets we examine,(More)
