To assess test-retest reliability scores on 16 balance tests of 21 individuals with Down syndrome whose ages ranged from 5 to 31 yr., participants performed a standing test on firm and soft surfaces with the eyes open and closed, the balance subset of the Bruininks-Oseretsky test, full turn, timed-up-and-go test, forward reach, and sit-to-stand. Each(More)
Programmers often develop software in multiple languages. In an effort to study the effects of programming language fragmentation on productivity—and ultimately on a devel-oper's problem-solving abilities—we present a metric, language entropy, for characterizing the distribution of a de-veloper's programming efforts across multiple programming languages. We(More)
Camera-equipped mini-UAVs are popular for many applications , including search and surveillance, but video from them is commonly plagued with distracting jittery motions and disorienting rotations that make it difficult for human viewers to detect objects of interest and infer spatial relationships. For time-critical search situations there are also(More)
In this appendix we compare and contrast accountability theory and deterrence theory, which have some conceptual and operational overlap and exhibit important differences. These similarities and dissimilarities are summarized in Table A1. Element Deterrence Theory Accountability Theory Objective of theory Explains how to reduce antisocial behaviors.(More)
Mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (mUAVs) have the potential to assist Wilderness Search and Rescue groups by providing a bird's eye view of the search area. This paper proposes a method for augmenting visible-spectrum searching with infrared sensing in order to make use of thermal search clues. It details a method for combining the color and heat information(More)
