Despite a body of literature focusing on the functionality of modern and stylistically distinct projectile points, comparatively little attention has been paid to quantifying the functionality of the early stages of projectile use. Previous work identified a simple ballistics measure, the Tip Cross-Sectional Area, as a way of determining if a given class of(More)
In this paper, we present our vision for moving toward an ideal state of cloud computing—a cloud Nirvana. In a cloud Nirvana, boundaries, both physically and artificially created by various types of constraints, imposed on the users would be removed. We propose a three-stage plan toward achieving a cloud computing Nirvana. The three stages are named(More)
Large-scale weapon systems employ distributed computing, but these systems typically do not have a services orientation as found in systems architected to leverage cloud computing. In this paper we describe some of the issues that need to be addressed to enable the application of cloud computing in such systems, using high-level generic use cases and(More)
The middle-late Pleistocene Kibish Formation of the Lower Omo Valley (Ethiopia) contains some of the oldest dated Homo sapiens fossils. Archaeological excavations at the Omo Kibish between 2002 and 2003 recovered numerous stone tools from extensive horizontal exposures of two sites, KHS (dated to 195+/-5 kyr) and BNS (dated to at least 104+/-7 kyr).(More)
