Service-learning enables computer science and engineering students to apply and refine their technical skills, learn new soft skills, and make a contribution to their community. At the University of South Florida we have organized a group of computer science and engineering students, called the CSE Volunteers, to provide IT support to the Hillsborough(More)
1 1 The use of Gnutella, Ditella, or any other product described herein does not represent its endorsement by the US Federal Government. Abstract In many applications – including peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing, content distribution networks, and grid computing – a single object will be searched for in multiple servers. In this paper, we find the provably(More)
Dysfunction of mitochondria, the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS), and lysosomes are believed to contribute to the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). If it were possible to rescue functionally compromised, but still viable neurons early in the disease process, this would slow the rate of neurodegeneration. Here, we used a catecholaminergic(More)
Activating mutations in leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) are strongly associated with increased risk of Parkinson's disease (PD). Thus, LRRK2 kinase inhibitors are in development as potential Parkinson's disease therapeutics. A reduction in the constitutive levels of phosphorylation on leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) is currently used to measure(More)

Probiotic microorganisms have been shown to provide specific health benefits when consumed as food supplements or as food components. The main problem of such products is the poor survival of the probiotic bacteria in the low pH of gastric fluid. However the use of synthetic excipients for enteric coating to prevent the exposure of microorganisms to gastric(More)
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) networks based on Gnutella locate files by flooding the network with query messages (a flooding query search). In this paper, a new P2P search paradigm is presented. The network is flooded with the list of shared files and corresponding updates instead of by queries. Novel P2P applications such as power management and ethical file sharing(More)
