There is controversy over whether abnormalities in the salt concentration or volume of airway surface liquid (ASL) initiate cystic fibrosis (CF) airway disease. In vivo studies of CF mouse nasal epithelia revealed an increase in goblet cell number that was associated with decreased ASL volume rather than abnormal [Cl(-)]. Aerosolization of osmolytes in vivo(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) has been associated with reduced neurocognitive performance in children, but the underlying etiology is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relationship between hypoxemia, respiratory arousals, and neurocognitive performance in snoring children referred for adenotonsillectomy. Thirteen snoring children(More)
TIGGE is a major component of the THORPEX (The Observing System Research and Predictability Experiment) research program, whose aim is to accelerate improvements in forecasting high-impact weather. By providing ensemble prediction data from leading operational forecast centers, TIGGE has enhanced collaboration between the research and operational(More)
This paper proposes a conceptual framework for mobile learning applications that provides systematic support for mobile learning experience design. It is based on a combination of a game metaphor and several studies of mobile learning contexts. An account of the Ambient Wood project is used to explore the relationship between the framework and mobile(More)
within the module comprised sessions designed to place the students in the position of network design consultants who are introduced to scenarios that have a high degree of realism in which a client has specific business requirements that can be met through the adoption of a network solution. In this way, the problem-based learning thread allows the(More)
—This paper proposes a conceptual framework for mobile learning applications that provides systematic support for mobile learning experience design. It is based on a combination of a game metaphor and several studies of mobile learning contexts.

Agile software development methods have become increasingly popular since the late 1990s, and may offer improved outcomes for software development projects when compared to more traditional approaches. However there has previously been little published empirical evidence to either prove or disprove this assertion. A survey carried out in March 2006 gathered(More)
The tension receptor system of the crab merus consists of two size classes of receptor cell body distributed along one face of the flexor muscle apodeme. The receptors show the general arthropod mechanoreceptor structure of cell body, connecting cilium, and sheathed sensory processes, but there are several differences. Many processes show convolutions, and(More)
