Chronic suppurative otitis media affected 3.8% of 3500 Solomon Island children under 15 years (and 6.1% under 5 years) and was the sole cause of conductive hearing loss recorded in 265 children tested audiometrically. It was characterised by early onset (65% under 18 months) male preponderance and large central tubotympanic perforations. Measles,(More)
Frozen sections of breast tumor tissue have been stained using an immunoperoxidase [estrogen receptor (ER)-immunocytochemistry] kit incorporating a monoclonal antiserum [H222] to visualize nuclear human ERs. Quantitation of specific staining has been performed by manual procedures using optical microscopy and by a computer-assisted image analysis system(More)
In 2007, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) released a report detailing the future of robotic military equipment and how to proceed in development and procurement of unmanned systems (Office of Secretary of Defense, 2007).

The emergence of several trends, including the increased availability of wireless networks, miniaturization of electronics and sensing technologies, and novel input and output devices, is creating a demand for integrated, fulltime displays for use across a wide range of applications, including collaborative environments. In this paper, we present and(More)
Team cognition has been identified as a key component to achieve mission goals in dynamic, team-based, stressful, distributed and multicultural operations.
