The red palm weevil (RPW) Rhynchophorus ferruginous (Olivier) was fully developed and reared on a meridic diet consisting of agar, distilled water, commercial yeast as well as laboratory produced amino and fatty acid rich brewer's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), wheat meal, corn flour, benzoic acid, ascorbic acid, sorbic acid, vitamin mix and tetracycline(More)
Adult Rhynchophorus ferrugineus (Olivier) captured in pheromone-baited traps in commercial date palm orchards in the Al Ahsaa Directorate, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, were used in computerized flight mill studies to determine the flight characteristics of this highly invasive and destructive palm pest. Flight mill studies were run at three different time(More)
The red palm weevil Rhynchophorus ferrugineus Olivier (Curculionidae/Rhynchophoridae/Dryophthoridae) is a lethal pest of young coconut palms, Cocos nucifera L. (Arecales: Arecaceae), with a highly aggregated population distribution pattern. R. ferrugineus is managed in several coconut growing countries using area-wide pheromone based programmes that need a(More)
Today's connected world demands applications that are responsive, always available, and can service a large number of users. However, the task of writing such applications is daunting, even for experienced developers. We propose CScale, a programming model that attempts to simplify this task. The objective of CScale is to let programmers specify their(More)
Distributed systems achieve scalability by balancing load across many machines, but wide-area distribution can introduce worst-case response latencies proportional to the network's delay diameter. Crux is a general framework to build locality-preserving distributed systems, by transforming some existing scalable distributed algorithm A into a new algorithm(More)
Important This document is work in progress. Feel free to cite, but note that we will update the contents without warning (pages are timestamped at the bottom right), and that we are likely going to publish the content in some future venue, at which point we may update this paragraph.
