A model of quality of life is proposed that integrates objective and subjective indicators, a broad range of life domains, and individual values. It takes account of concerns that externally derived norms should not be applied without reference to individual differences. It also allows for objective comparisons to be made between the situations of(More)
Adapiform or 'adapoid' primates first appear in the fossil record in the earliest Eocene epoch ( approximately 55 million years (Myr) ago), and were common components of Palaeogene primate communities in Europe, Asia and North America. Adapiforms are commonly referred to as the 'lemur-like' primates of the Eocene epoch, and recent phylogenetic analyses have(More)
An ideal datacenter network should provide several properties, including low median and tail latency, high utilization (throughput), fair allocation of network resources between users or applications, deadline-aware scheduling, and congestion (loss) avoidance. Current datacenter networks inherit the principles that went into the design of the Internet,(More)
Analysis of the teeth, orbital, and gnathic regions of the skull, and fragmentary postcranial bones provides evidence for reconstructing a behavioral profile of Amphipithecidae: Pondaungia, Amphipithecus, Myanmarpithecus (late middle Eocene, Myanmar) and Siamopithecus (late Eocene, Thailand). At 5-8 kg, Pondaungia, Amphipithecus, and Siamopithecus are(More)
Increasingly, commissioners and providers of services for people with intellectual disabilities are turning to assistive technology and telecare as a potential solution to the problem of the increased demand for services, brought about by an expanding population of people with intellectual disabilities in the context of relatively static or diminishing(More)
A fundamental problem in wireless networks is to develop communication protocols that achieve high throughput in the face of noise, interference, and fading, all of which vary with time. An ideal solution is a <i>rateless</i> wireless system, in which the sender encodes data without any explicit estimation or adaptation, implicitly adapting to the level of(More)
BACKGROUND A distinction is made between objective and subjective assessment when quality of life evaluation is considered. The aim was to explore the association between objective and subjective appraisals within similar quality of life domains. METHODS Correlations between scores on objective and subjective quality of life measures concerning choice,(More)
The biosynthesis of nitric oxide (NO) by the enzyme NO synthase (NOS) proceeds by the hydroxylation of L-arginine to form NG-hydroxy-L-arginine followed by the conversion of NG-hydroxy-L-arginine to L-citrulline and NO. The previously identified requirements of this relatively complicated reaction include several protein-bound cofactors: cytochrome(More)
We reconstructed the jaw adductor resultant in 34 primate species using new data on muscle physiological cross-sectional area (PCSA) and data on skull landmarks. Based on predictions by Greaves, the resultant should (1) cross the jaw at 30% of its length, (2) lie directly posterior to the last molar, and (3) incline more anteriorly in primates that need not(More)
There is evidence of considerable variability in the quality of residential services and a tendency for residents' quality of life to co-vary with ability level. Quality of life of 154 people living in 47 small community residences was assessed using 14 subjective and objective indicators. Information on setting structure, processes, and staff working(More)
