METHODS: Thirty one Marshallese with diabetes who live on the island of Oahu, Hawaii were recruited. Baseline health status of(More)
Circulating 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations have been associated with both higher and lower risk of prostate cancer (PCa), whereas elevated levels of circulating calcium has been related to higher risks. However, there are few studies that account for effects of both calcium and 25(OH)D concentrations on incident PCa in a black population. We(More)
The control of an airborne wind energy system with a Magnus effect device has been studied. The proposed strategy aims to control the amount of the output energy produced for a given cycle. The control scheme has been applied numerically and experimentally on a small scale indoor setup of Gipsa-lab, and validated numerically for Omnidea's experimental(More)
The major components of cryptography include encryption, MAC’s, digital signatures, and authentication. Encryption hides the content of a message from eavesdroppers, providing privacy. MAC’s provide a way to detect tampering, thereby providing message integrity. Digital signatures enable a party to verify the origin of a message. Authentication provides a(More)
OBJECTIVE Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is composed of cells that migrate through the brain along predictable white matter pathways. Targeting white matter pathways adjacent to, and leading away from, the original contrast-enhancing tumor site (termed leading-edge radiosurgery [LERS]) with single-fraction stereotactic radiosurgery as a boost to standard(More)
