Twitter contains a wealth of timely information, however staying on top of breaking events requires that an information analyst constantly scan many sources, leading to information overload. For example, a user might wish to be made aware whenever an infectious disease outbreak takes place, when a new smartphone is announced or when a distributed Denial of(More)
The production of resistant soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] cultivars is the most effective means for controlling losses from soybean cyst nematode (SCN) (Heterodera glycines Ichinohe). The major resistance gene in most SCN resistance sources is rhg1, which has been mapped as a quantitative trait locus onto linkage group G. Our objective was to determine(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a particularly problematic opportunistic pathogen due to its capacity to form recalcitrant biofilm structures, while cohabiting with other harmful/pathogenic species and harboring the capability to release toxins that cause tissue necrosis. Although it is now recognized that the majority of biofilm infections are polymicrobial,(More)
In March of 2013, what started as a minor dispute between Spamhaus and Cyberbunker culminated in a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack that was so massive, it was claimed to have slowed internet speeds around the globe. The attack clogged servers with dummy internet traffic at a rate of about 300 gigabits per second. By comparison , the largest(More)
—Agents in a social-technological network can be thought of as strategically interacting with each other by continually observing their own local or hyperlocal information and communicating suitable signals to the receivers who can take appropriate actions. Such interactions have been modeled as information-asymmetric signaling games and studied in our(More)
Listeria monocytogenes remains a significant foodborne pathogen due to its virulence and ability to become established in food processing facilities. The pathogen is characterized by its ability to grow over a wide temperature range and withstand a broad range of stresses. The following reports on the chemotaxis and motility of the L. monocytogenes when(More)
We present a game theoretic framework, modeling strategic interactions among humans and things, which are assumed to be interconnected by a social-technological network, as in Internet of Humans and Things (IOHT). Often a pair of agents in the network interact in order for an informed sender-agent to signal an uninformed receiver-agent to take an action(More)
2009 The primary goals of the CERT ® Program are to ensure that appropriate technology and systems management practices are used to resist attacks on networked systems and to limit damage and ensure continuity of critical services in spite of attacks, accidents, or failures. CERT is part of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a federally funded(More)
