The emergence of new regulatory and pro-inflammatory immune cell subsets and cytokines dictates the need to re-examine the role of these subsets in various diseases involving the immune system. IL-17 has been recently identified as a key cytokine involved in numerous autoimmune processes. However, its role in liver autoimmune diseases remains unclear.(More)
By a combination of aggressive packaging and electrical design, protocol innovations, and extensive pipelining Gigaplane achieves higher bandwidth, higher transaction throughput and lower latency than other competing buses, while providing support for up to 30 UltraSPARC processors. In addition to high performance features, the modular system structure(More)
This paper presents an approach for real-time multivehicle tracking and counting under fisheye camera based on simple feature points tracking, grouping and association. Different from traditional cameras, the main challenge under fisheye cameras is that the objects being tracked suffer from severe distortion and perspective effects in even adjacent frames.(More)
Partners in Flight (PIF) is a consortium of professional and volunteer scientists and educators that promotes the conservation of landbird species. Central to the PIF conservation effort is the development of Bird Conservation Plans specific to each physiographic region of the United States. Without a coordinated priori-tization of research needs, land(More)
Many biological, hydrological, and geological processes are interactively linked in ecosystems. These ecological phenomena normally vary within bounded ranges, but rapid, nonlinear changes to markedly different conditions can be triggered by even small differences if threshold values are exceeded. Intrinsic and extrinsic ecological thresholds can lead to(More)
— A position sensitive radiation sensor was modeled, developed and fabricated then interfaced with a field programmable gate array (FPGA) to create a radiation hardened computing platform. The system exploits environmental information from the sensor in order to determine regions within the FPGA that may have been affected by radiation. The spatial(More)

Note by the Executive Secretary 1. The Executive Secretary is circulating herewith, for the information of participants in the seventeenth meeting of the Subsidiary Body on(More)
patterns of these REPs would vary regionally, but should ideally involve a consortium of national governments, civil-society organizations and businesses. The third group would be the Policy Analysis Panel (PAP) — a standing panel of expertise, global in reach, with interdisciplinary skills and a diverse analytical capacity. Perhaps 50–100 strong, this(More)
INTRODUCTION: In a July 9, 2001 memorandum to the District Superintendents and executive policy staff (see attached), Deputy Director Dick Troy indicated Director Areias' interest in addressing the need for off-leash dog parks in urban areas. After speaking with Senator Jackie Speier, the Director indicated his interest in testing a small number of pilot(More)
