This article explores shifting definitions of propaganda, because how we define the slippery enterprise determines whether we perceive propaganda to be ethical or unethical. I also consider the social psychology and semantics of propaganda, because our ethics are shaped by and reflect our belief systems, values, and language behaviors. Finally, in the(More)
A variation of cone-tracing is used to predict the signal strength in wireless networks. Differences between light and radio waves necessitate certain changes to the basic ray/cone tracing algorithm, as does the information required of the solution. The new algorithm is compared to a previous algorithm for signal strength prediction, and verified on some(More)

Demand Response has been conventionally used as a resource to support the grid under steady state operating conditions by peak shifting or leveling the electrical load. The characteristics of responsive demand resources can also be used to support the grid during emergency and contingency conditions. Demand resources can respond very fast to provide(More)

In the absence of generic programming abstractions for dynamic data in most enterprise programming environments, individual applications treat data streams as a special case requiring custom programming. With the growing number of live data sources such as RSS feeds, messaging and presence servers, multimedia streams, and sensor data. a general-purpose(More)
The reaction of [Cu(L)(H(2)O)](2+) with an excess of thiosulfate in aqueous solution produces a blue to green color change indicative of thiosulfate coordination to Cu(II) [L = tren, Bz(3)tren, Me(6)tren, and Me(3)tren; tren = tris(2-aminoethyl)amine, Bz(3)tren = tris(2-benzylaminoethyl)amine, Me(6)tren = tris(2,2-dimethylaminoethyl)amine, and Me(3)tren =(More)
