Geolocated social media data provides a powerful source of information about place and regional human behavior. Because little social media data is geolocation-annotated, inference techniques serve an essential role for increasing the volume of annotated data. One major class of inference approaches has relied on the social network of Twitter, where the(More)
Much work on the demographics of social media platforms such as Twitter has focused on the properties of individuals, such as gender or age. However, because credible detectors for organization accounts do not exist, these and future largescale studies of human behavior on social media can be contaminated by the presence of accounts belonging to(More)
How does exercising behavior vary with age and gender? Introduction and Motivation Data Exercise is an important component of health. Previous studies of exercise and health have been stymied by the lack of accurate records of exercising activities. In our study, we overcome this limitation by using data from Fitocracy, a gamified workout tracking site that(More)
Discriminating amongst stimuli in the environment is a fundamental aspect of brain function. Research has shown that chaotic neural networks are exquisitely sensitive to small perturbations making them unreliable and unpredictable. Here, we examine how neuronal oscillations (i.e., temporal waves of activity) may be tuned to enhance the discrimination(More)
Immunoglobulin heavy chain (IgH) gene rearrangement analysis was performed on 27 fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens (13 reactive hyperplasia, 11 B cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (B-NHL), one Hodgkin's disease and two suspicious of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma). Satisfactory amplification was achieved in 23/27 cases. A polyclonal pattern was seen in 14 cases (11(More)
AIMS To demonstrate expression of immunoglobulin light chain mRNA in diagnostic fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytology specimens using an in situ hybridisation (ISH) technique; and to evaluate ISH in a series of reactive lymphoid proliferations and malignant lymphomas. METHODS Forty diagnostic FNA specimens showing a lymphoid cell population were examined(More)
